RU1SELL. frofaratUu ef tke Government?Its Ml* veaey?Its Chaaces ef Saccsss? Prlace Na> peleea. Washimotok, Aug. 10. Tor good or for evil, the issue between North and Sooth U rapidly approaching to that #hieh the South 'predicted ana feared, and the North at drat disavowed and does not now altogether accept,?the struggle, if it oontinues, will be narrowed to a contest between slavery and abolition. It is not improbable that in a day or twe the President will declare that all laves within the lines of the United States army become free. On the very last day of Concrete the bill which sets free slaves belonging to rebels engaged in war was signed wuo reluctance oj Mr. Lincoln, and was all bat lo?t by lap?e of time, for, had he not been persuaded to overoome hit scruples, Congress would hare adjourned without the signature of the President baring been given to that act. Indeed, but for the prolongation of half an hour agreed upon, the signature could not have been obtained, as the President at first refused peremptorily to put his name to the bill, alleging that "it will lose us Kentucky;" but there was a pressure of Senators put upon bim, and he jieldod at last, but ten minutes before the House rose. On such occasions the President comes down to his room in the Capitol, and affixes his name, or receives the official visits of the legislators, and if the clock bad not been put back, and the sittings carried on beyond the time agreed upon lot the adjournment, this bill oould not have been L reseated to the Senate. But now, after the ip?? of a few dajs, it is said that a step far in advance of that measure will be taken, and iu?i vuo giuYB win ue luruwu uuwa 10 me Booth, and to the Democrats of the North as well. If so, there can be no longer any doubt as to the nature of the fight, or aa to the mean* to be oaed in it, bat it argues the possession of no common courage an J self-reliance on the part of the Republicans to offer battle on the question at the very moment that the Demooratic Convention of New York has refused to actinoommon with the Republicans, and when "a peace at any price ana compromise if you ean party" is beginning te make itself heard in the northern and northwestern parts of the Union. In revolutions the moderate politicians who start up before the last act of the drama approaches, in order to become mediators, or to propose terms to the contending factions, are generally crushed betwixt the upper and nether millstones; but there are exceptions to that rale?the violent and fanatio sections are sometimes either neutralised, absorbed, or overcome by the just* milieu. Much as Americans might wish for such a result, and ereatly as European politicians would really desire the reunion of the Btales by the agency of compromise, it is hot>ia? a?amst hoDe to ezoect thev will hn <rrat. bad. - ' * Before Miouus some wonderful combination of good luck and dexterity on the part of " the devil of compromise" might have led to an adjustment, or a patching op of the torn earn* and tattered flags of the Repnblio. The North oonld not now in honor snbmit to amalEamation with all the taint of base metal on er part of the eomponnd. The eontinent of America ooald not hold northern men in the faee of defeat, insult, and contempt from the men of the South. As well might tnecomrade of ancient Pistol hop* to live on good oondi* tious with his truculent friends because he had submitted quietly to the pulling of his nose and the kicking of his person as a basis of am ltr and equality. Philosophic statesmen, like Mr Sumner, may not be affected by such considerations. They look, like him, to great principles Mere American politicians, caucus-moogers. wire-pullers, like Mr. Blair, do not appreciate any result whioh does not produoe an immediate effect an the yotea of the Houses, the appointments to ofBoe, or the legerdemain of official life, in which they are all glorying and disporting. Men who have studied patiently and long the whola of the political mechanism of the Union are so muoh enameled of the fineness of the machinery and the baaatiful play of ita parts that, like Mr. Seward, they think if all the biU are put together, a little oil applied, and the steam got well up, with a good whistle to clear the way againat England or Spain, or some European Power, it is sure to preaerre ita censistency and run ita course aa of yore Meantime troops are pouring into the neighborhood of the capital. Although Oen. Scott is perfeotly tranquil, and is quite aatiafied the Confederatea can maka no aggreasive move Bern wunoui signal ?auiiMment and defeat, Otn McCltllan u most uneasy and appre* keneive of danger, and u urgent in demending more men. He prefers his demands on all who coma near him, and aome Senstor (one at least) was so ranch impressed by his statements that, on his own responsibility, and without any communication with the Government, he telegraphed to the Governor ef his State to send on at once every ragim ent he oouldmuster to Washington. Act- I lD? on bia own aoooant, and without Gen, I Scott's knowledge, I spprehend, Gen. McClellaa has also from time to tyn* sent regiments to points whioh he conceived to be menaced or most In need of reinforcements. He is very short in a proper complement of oavalry and field artillery. His troops ar? as raw as can be, the officers not a whit better as yet than the Boll Ron officers. In fact, his army is not a fizhtin* machine, which oan be handled as a whole, nor do I think the Confederate* are much better in anj way, except in cavalry. The material of tome of the Northern regi meat* eannot be excelled. Splendid men, Joanx, tail, roboat, intelligent, and accustomed > aaVentare. If the workmen knew their business, there is plenty of stuff to make rood army in their hands. My estimate of Mr. Jeffersen Da?ia' foroe in cavalry and guns waa not far wrong, bat by thia time he has probably received reinforcements to his horse power, and has oertalnly increased his artillery. Bat, After *11, what will another battle effect? Even if the result at Manassas be reversed, there is little likelihood that more will be done than increasing the feeling of bitterness between the extremists and a fresh loee of life, for the Federalists woald be as little able to improve victory as the Confederates were, and eves the poMession of Richmond or Washington woala not enable the viotors to dictate muc I It la all fry wall to talk of an army of 6^0,000 man. It la a larfa force; bat. If It b?, America la atili larger than ita action. A rapid development of the railroad ayatem baa left parte of Aaaariaa in which thia war moat b? waged deetit ate of ordinary roada, and the difficulty of Moving provtaiooa and mattritl ia enormoua In ooaporiaon with any part of Europe. Nor la the eonntry fit for auen marehee aa oan be made aeroaa the ateppoa, aa in India, or in the open La ode of Europe. Such roada aa ex at are generally eat deep in the eoil,with high banks; the land ia covered with foreat, and tne cleared fielda are filled with atumpa fatal to horee or wagon. Then there are great riveraand mountain paaaaa foodleaa and deeolate. An army of 644,000 men acattered over the Southern frontier of the United Statea, with ita right extending down into Miaeonri on the border* of Arkantae, and ita left reeling on Fortreee Monroe, repreeenta a feeble ohain,whioh oould be broken at any plaee. If it fjrma in atrong oorpa, the difficulty of traneportafcon of food and materiel orieee.

If we were to judge ?f the Sutea generally by what ia taking place .in Missouri, however, it would Mem as if a large nuaber of tbe inhabitants preferred to let Uaioniat and Seoeasitnist fight it out by tbemselrea. Got. Jackson and his frienda?Gen. Lyon and Col 8iegel?fight and retreat, advance and countermarch, and engage in numerous skirmishes, without adding a particle of force to the oause in whioh they are engaged, and the maaa of thepeople stand neutral between them. Gov. Wise flies through Western Virginia before the Federalists, burning bridges and tearing np railroads; and tbe inhabitants, possibly, are equally diagusted with both sides. These desultory operations contribute little or nothing to the end of the war. And how the poor people suffer ! * * * Tbe streets are now clear of soldiers. The gal loping of orderlies is very much reduced m proportion as things get into order, and on the other side of the river there is plenty of drilling and plenty of hard work, principally in completing a great abattis from Fort Ellsworth at Alexandria, across the front of the position. None of this, however, is seen in the capital itself. It would teem as if the torpor which prevails at Washington had its counterpart at Richmond. The soathern papers attribate the inactivity to design?"a great coup soon to be made, and it is necessary to be cautions and to be silent." On both sides the utmost care is taken to screen such movements as may take plaoej |p&sses are striotly examined at all the exits and entrances of the northern camps. General McDowell, who was in attendance on Prince Napoleon last Thursday,was stopped by one of his oVn sentries because his pass was not en regfe. Gen. Beaurgard evinces the utmost sensitiveness in respect to any approach to his lines. Prince Napoleon was, however, received with feelings stronger than respect by the Confederates. On Thursday morning early the Prince started with M Meroier, the French Minister, and his suite, from Washington, and proceeded to Alexandria, attended by Gen. McDowell, who provided him with an escort of United States cavalry. On arriving at the outposts the General returned, and the Prince s party went on till they met the Confederate pickets, by whom, after a brief delay, they were permitted to pass on towards Fairfax. I know but little of what happened, except that the Prince saw Gen. Beauregard and Gen. Johnston, and flept at the auarters of the latter; that he examined the oattle-field as far as the horrible odor would permit; and that he returned late on Fridsy evening, pretty well satisfied that there was not mucn to choose between the two armies, but that the Nationalists were on the whole the better of the two, and that be weuld take them for choice. Gen. Beauregard did not make a very good impression on the Prince, it is said, although his French is natural to him as a New. Orleans Creole. It is said by the people who can see a long way into millstones that the Prince will oertainly propose an arbitration, and that his visit is made with the object of securing for France the position which would certainly be given to the Power that might render an agreement possible. Mr. Seward not only exhibited an inclination to let the Prince go, if he liked?he seemed to think it would not be possible to find any soand reasons to obiect to the expedition. Now, it strikes an outsider that if the United States Government was angry with Great Britain for placing the Confederate States army oa the rooting of belligerents, and if it has always maintained that the troops of the Confederate States army, so called, are rebels, the risit of the heir to the Throne of France, minus one in the present Imperial succession, attended by a United States General and escort to the camp of the rebels and to the Generals in command of them, with the sanction of the United States Government, and the return of the party to the United States lines, is one of the most extraordinary cases that has ever been permitted to occur by any Government in the world. I doubt if any neutral prince would have been allowed to pass from the Allied lines into Sebastopol and to have returned to the Allies bj either side; but there could be no "if" in the matter at all, had the one ide considered and proclaimed the other to be rebels. It was late on Friday when the Prince retnrned, and on Saturday he left Washington for the North, in company with M. Mercier. His visit will be construed in many ways, none of them just?the significanco of the act will be magnified and its importance exaggerated. ******* In nothing is the weakness of the Federal Government more strikingly shown than In those questions on maritime rights on which it was wont to maintain such defiant language and haughty attitude. It stigmatises Southern privateers as pirates, and treats them as Crisoners of war. Let us now see what will e done in the oase of those men who were saved off the wreck of the Confederate vessel Petrel, the stolen property of the United States, oommanded by Confederate officers, *L *- - - ... - - wuigd actually engaged a United States [rigate and waa sunk by her. Every sea-going vessel of the United States, except five, which are now being refitted, ia in active employment, the great majority of the vessels afloat are sailing ships, and it will be observed with surprise tnat the new steamera ordered comprise a number of paddlewheel vessels. Of 1,354 commissioned officers in the Navy, 342 were from the Confederate States, of whom 321 have resigned, and it is feared that there are many officers in the servioe whose heart* are not in the right place on this question, or who, to use the Amerioan slang, are "not square on the goose." TTyCapt. Welch, of the schooner Mary Allce? recently captured by a rebel privateer, and taken Into a southern port, from whence be haa made hit way North by way of Richmond, makts a statement of the number of privateers now fitting oat at Charleston, and those already gone from there. They consist of the Beauregard, Capt. Sibley, with forty men; the steamer South Carolina alt. Bull Run, Capt. Coxaetter, with eighty men; and a light ahlp moved from the Rattleanake Shoals, with forty men. Moat of the crew of the latter, however, were in prison, aa they had refused '? serve after heart ag of the summary fate of the Petrel. T?? Nmw Yobk Militabt ?The Tribune of yeatcrday says : "It la probable that the State r??[Ulsltlon will be filled without resorting todraftng The progress of recruiting for thr State has hitherto been slow. The number of uninspected at the depot In this city does not reach 2,000, and those at Albany and Elmtra probably not a greater amber. These, with the large number of recruits which will offer la the oountry when the harvest la over, and the addition of some of the militia regiments which are reorganizing, will probably soon bring up the whole number of men to 35,000 " flT'The London Herald of the 28th of Angnst says: A vessel having been chartered to convey a cargo of five hundred Mormonltes from Liverpool i to the United States, m rout* to the settlements in I Utah Territory, about seventy men, women, boy* and girl*, forming the contingent supplied by the London district, assembled on Monday morning at the E us ton terminus of tbe London and Northwestern Railway, uader the charge of "Elder" Joseph Otbbs All seemed to belong to the workIng classes, snd ths proportion of the sexes wss about equal Many of their relations snd fellow "saints'' attended at the ststlon to bid them fhrewell. dT" The Madison Courier hss reliable Information thst lares qusntltlss of contraband good* are being shipped from ths Southern border of Indians, els Kentucky river, to tbe South The schemes sdopted by a certain class of men to smuggle forbidden articles to tbs rebsls are truly astonishing.
