SPIttlTOF THE MOKNING PKL8S The Cniorty diMuanag " Sectional Antago " ?nd looking for the cause of them, point* oat that there ia so real antagonism of materiel or political interest* between the dif ferent seotiona, end that the real antagonism ia on a question of morala, the North believing that African alavery is immoral and sinful, whilst the South regards it as consistent with morality and Christianity. But why, asks the Union, should the two aectioss of the Confed* eracy become agitated end arrayed against each otter on a qnestlos of morals? Was the Federal Qcrerr.mont instituted to take co^ni. ranee of question of morality? We believe that this, in the language cf the lawyers, ia *es adjudtrata. The framers of the Federal compact oocupisd antagonistic positions aa to the morality of slavery, yet they settled the conflict of opinion by leaving the entire juris diction of the morality of slavery to the States. They went a s'ep further, and provided that just so long as any State retained the institu tion of slavery tiie question whether it wa moral or immoral should not be raiaed by the Federal Government. The Ut*i?n urges, farther, that, as on the one hand, the people of the South have no right to complain if the people of the North differ with them ?a to this question of moral-. *o on the other the people of the North have as littlo right to complain if the people of the South differ with tbem as to the same question of morality. Bat difficulty oommence* whenever one section as sumes ta intervene, either directly or indi rectly. aj to the moral sentiment* of the other. The Cn\on holds up topojular detestation ' the three Judases'* who. elected by their c>nititucnt? to the Penncylvania Legislature aa democrats, had the lack of sham^ and honor to vote for bimon Cameron, the Repub lican candidate for U S Senator, and adds " It ij paid that these three Pennsylvania Judases will now be rewarded wnh place and power by the opposition We will .speak f->r the Republicans oace. and voncb that it will not be so. The old illustration i? not yet so trite but that it may be called into service again. The Americau colonies pointed the bnger of scorn at Benedict Arnold. The English gloried in the treason, but they ever deep<sei the traitor. So the American De mocracy to a man point the finger of worn at Lebo. Wagonseller. and Manear The Re publican party may rejoice in the fruits of the treason, but they will ever despi.e the trait ors." The lntel-igtmetr has no editorial t?; day The Embezzlement cros rna Nokther.v Railwav Compasv.?The Parisian journals contain tbe following paragraph The loss sustained by the Northern Railway Company, which was originally six millions, is now re duced to about four millions, inconsequence of tbe discovery of the shares deposited at the Bank of France, and the seisure of tbe monies which Carpentier had in his possession when arrested It :s not vet exactly known in what manner the shareholder* will have to sustain this loa#; but it is generally believed that it will not be aateosed upon a period of ten years only, in which case the bharee would only have to sustain a loss of cne franc per share upon their dividend during the period of the onoessiun, which woold reduce the annual reserve ot ten or fifteen centime* per share and per annum In both caaes the share holders will have little to ;u5>r by this unior tunate aflair. We perceive by the above extrac: from the Pariaian journals copied into the New York Herald of the 15th iast , that shares or certi" flcates of stock tto!en from the Northern Rail way Company cf FraLce by Carpentier, the abMO~dii.g cashier, whoee arrest is October lir- wa# iflVted by 8.

Diplomatic Correspondence.? The Herbert Case.?Below we glva some extracts from the correspondence communicated to Congress by the President relative to the refusal of the Netherlands Minister to permit its diplomatic agents to testify in our courts of law . mr Marty to mr Belmont. UEFARTWB5T OF STATK. > Washington. May 15, 185(5 ( Sib 1 regret to be under the neoessitv of requesting vou to invito the attention of Mr. Van Hall, Minister of Foreign Affairs, to the course ot Mr- Dubois, resident Minister near this Government, in regard to the melancholy affair which he witnessed in a public hotel in Washington a few days ago It will be sufficient for my present purpose to state that while he was at breakfast in tho public dining room of the hotel, a difficulty arose between a member of Congress and one of the waiters of the hotel, and a personal con flict ensued between these parties, which re suited in the death of the waiter, from a pis j tol-shot fired by the member of Congress. He ! appeared before the magistrates for the pur : pose of a judicial investigation, and the Dir trict Attorney, charged with the public pros ecution of the offence, invited Mr. Dubois to attend the court and give his testimony in the case. This he declined to do, and the in fluence of this department wss invoked to In duce him to waive his privilege under the law ?>f nations, and appear as a witness I have most cheerfully compiled with the request of the District Attorney, and have earnestly endeavored to convince Mr. Dubois that he would .not only contribute largely to tbe administration of justice by attending, but increase bis claim.* upon the good-will *r' ? bis ootnmunity, and greatly augment hi? means of usefulness to his Government. I regret that he has not been ab!e to view tho I matter in the light in which I have presented it to him This, perhaps, ought not to create surprise, as he has but lately arrived in the ?country, and is an entire stranger among us, and, in his embarrassment, it is not unreason able that he should have consulted his col leagues in tbe diplomatic corps. It is under go >d that they have advised nim to persist in his refusal to appear before the court. It is , not doubted that both by the usage of nations and the laws of the United States, Mr Dubois has the legal light to decline to give his testi ' inony, but he ia at perfect liberty to exercise , this privilege to the extent requested, and by ?doing so he does not subject himself to the ju* ! risdiction of the country. The circumstances ?of this ?a?c are such a' to appeal strongly to the universal sense of justice. Mr Dubois ? wa<<, it is believed, the only unprejudiced per son who witnessed the whole affair, and It is not probable that justice can be done in the ' ?"?8o without his evidence. If tbe accused acted in self-defence, as is alleged, be is inno cent ?f the orime chargcd, and there is a high moral obligation upon Mr Dubois to contri bute hi? testimony to establish the lact. But if on the contrary, he is guilty, the claims of justice arc not less imperative, and they are, besides, augmented by the interest of the whole community. These considerations have not bad that in fluence upon Mr Dubois to which they are believed to be entitled, and I hope they may Srove to be more convincing to the mind of [r. \ an Hall. In the event of his suggesting that Mr Dubois might give his deposition out of court in the case, you will not omit to state that by our constitution, in all criminal prose cutions, the accused has the right to be con fronted wilh the witnesses against bim, and hence, in order that the testimony should be legal, it should be rvveu before the court. I am. sir, rei-pecUully, your obedient ser'vt, W. L. Marct. August Belmont. Esq., Hague Mr Belmont replies under date of June 10, .1S56, that he has had an interview with Baron ^ Hall, of the Netherlands Government, ?and was informed by bim that the conduct of Mr. Dubois was fully approved of by his Gov ernment, at the same time he was authorised to testify under oath, at the State Depart ment, but that the character of Mr. Dubois, as representative of his royal master, would, <>n no account, admit of his appearing in court as an ordinary witness, and of his being ?ub jected to a vexatious croee-examination. Mr. Belmont failed to induee Mr. Van Hall to recede from his position by telling him that by the proceedings prescribed by the constitu tion of the United States in criminal prosecu tions, any concession of Mr. Dubois, short of his willicgceis to testify in open court, and to be confronted with the accused, would not be of the slightest avail, as his evidence would only be admissable on such conditions, and by representing to him the vital Import&bce of the case, and the saored obligations it imposed upon Mr Dubois, whose testimony, ss per haps the only unprejudiced witness through out the whole disgraceful scene, might prove indispensable either to save the life of a fel low being, or to avenge the majesty of the law. Mr. Belmont transmits the letter to him ot Mr. \ an Hall, affirming bis decision offi cially, giving it as his conviction that tho difficulties of a criminal salt to be carried on in America, as a common witness, could not comport with the dignity of the character of a minister of the King residing at the seat of government of the republic, nor yet could it do so with the duties of bid office. In con concluding, Mr. Van Hall says: " 1 beg you, sir, to communicate this an swer < f mine to Mr Mircy, flattering myself that he will bo plea*ed to derive lr>m it :i conviction that, in the act of authorising i's minuter rc.-ident at Washington to give his sworn deposition to the Secretary of State, the government of the Netherlands did all that was rationally feasible under the circum a'ances, and that the government of the United States will appreciate the eentiments of cour tesy and friendly disposition which suxirested such an authority." Mr Dubois, under date of June 21, 18.V1, write? to Mr. Marcy that he ha? instructions to the same effect from his government, to which Mr Marcy replies that under our sys tem of administering law in criminal cases such a declaration as that proposed cnM n->t be admitted a? complete evidence.
