D.L.i f- : ??ki. IU rcinicr -nc nouvi luiuuuaiiuna iiupn^usvio, it is not likely he will attempt to make a staad above Randolph, Tenn , should he, indeed, stop short of Memphis. To get oat of the reach of the huge anaconda now winding it* stupendous ooila to atrangle the rebellion in the Miasi wippi valley, he will have to go at least that far for present safety. Even this would not save him long if the prophetic signs of eventa are veriSed. We assume, however, that efforts will still be made by the Confederate authorities to impede the navigation of the Mississippi river into the cotton growing region, and as Kandolpn is tbe best available spot above Memnkis Dot flanked by the Union army on the Tennessee and Cumberland, it is not anressonuble to suppose that some resistance ^ will be offered there, by concentrating a force to obstruct the passage of our gunboats to the commercial metropolis of Tennessee. The keen, prospective eye of Gen. Halleck is doubtless now upon Memphis, the key to the Gulf of Mexico. When Memphis falls, then goed-by to "New Orleans and intermediate landings, " as the steamboat bills say. That city by far the most important between St. Louis and the mouths of the Mississippi, is the rntrenot of four riilroarl* trHv?r?in? Vnrth South. East and West. The shipments of cotton alone in the year ending September 1st, 18r>0, amounted to 400,000 bales; and its general business, in ordinary times, is immense. With a copulation of 25,000 souls, we may well beliere that if the inhabitants are sincerely and strenuously opposed to the Union (which they are not), the approach of Union forces is a matter of profound concern. But though there are thousands of loyal people in Memphis, and though (as the papers of that city tell us) the recent succeas of our Generals ?- were received by many there with undisguised A # 4* A. 1 J A1 A. A I 1 L . A ( ausiscuon. 11 must. oe saia inai ue rea-noi, howling SecessonisU are by no means scarce The place baa been strongly fortified, and the possession of it will be very reluctantly given ' up. Nature has done mucb for it in the way ol defences. The city is situated immediately below the mouth of Wolf river, on the fourth Chickasaw bluff, from thirty to forty feet above high water mark. Extending in front is a beautiful terrace or esplanade, nearly a tKnnaBnr) f.-pf irirla frs r m 1 n r* a rr]ft<?ta nf ca?l*_ ficient compass to accommodate a large arm; facing the landing. Heavy cannon have been mounted upon the most eligible sites q^'Ut the city, and the exposed portions greatly strengthened by skiliui engineers. Cut the same military necessity which compelled the evacuation ot Bowling Gieen. and which now compels the evacuation of Columbus, will, in due time, make itself apparent at Memphis. When everything is in readiness it will fall into the hands of the Federal troops, and most likely without any prolonged conflict. Between Columbus and Memphis the rebels have crected no less than five somewhat formidable fortifications. A strong water battery, mounting twelve 32 and 42-pounders at llick man. was erected to protect the Nashville and Northwestern railroad, connecting at Union city with the Mobile and Ohio, and at McKensie, fifty-fire miles southeast, with the Memphis and Ohio railroads; but as communication is now already cut off between Columbu3 and Nashville, the possession of Hickman is no longer of any use to either army. The same remark holds good in relation to an extensive work near the State lie Separating Kentucky from Tennessee, upon which 500 negroes, uuder the superintendence of an able engineer officer, are a lid to be set to work in September. Fort Pillow, a short distance below, a strong esuhwork with bastions, walls and trenches, mounting thirty guna en barbette, and the redoubts an 1 embankment.* raised bv.Ttff. Thotunsoa at New Madrid, must likewise be abandoned as *f no farther service in the present posture of Gon. Grant's forces. Having mentioned four defended points below Col nimbus, n# next couie to Fort Randolph, sixty miles above Memphis, and about threo hundred and fifty miles from St. Louis. This is anything but a weak position. It is built upon the third Chickasaw bluffs, more than one hundred feet above the river, and immediately south of Island No. Si, the lower part of which commands the three mouths of the Hatchie river, a stream (navigable at good stages) that empties into the Mississippi just above the town of Randolph, at the upper edge of the bluffs. These bluffs form natural para# i a ? t % . ?eu lor oaitenea, ana oommana a view ot tne [iaaiasippi river for six miles each way. By silencing whatever gum may be placed on the island, iron-clad boats, in the present oondition of the lower Misaissidpi, might enter the northern mouth of the Hatohie out of range of Fort Randolph. The town of Randolph, near whioh the fort stands, consists of half a doaen or ao dilapidated frame houses, and ia approached in the rear by several rood roada, but the country behind it.beinn fall of ravines and gomes is capable of being fortified to an almoat indefinite extent. The position, however, is of no manner of o*e or benefit, exoept to dispute the navigation of the river. It hu no railroad commumeations, and as an army stationed there wuuld have to depend on the river exclusively for the transportation of supplies^ it would not require long to starve it out. So Gen. Polk may take bis choice. If he ooncentraies at Randolph, the capture of Memphis will be so much the easier. If he falls back on Memphis, that much more territory is reclaimed to Federal authority.

An army could be landed near the southern boundary line of Tennessee, at a point nearest Corinth, where the Mobile and Ohio railroad crosses the Memphis and Charleston road, the seizure of which would be of immense advantage in bringing Memphis to tsrms. From Corinth to Memphis the distanoe by railroad is about ninety miles, and as reinforcements would thus be measurably ?ut off, the work of reducing the latter oity could be prosecuted at leisure. That is to say, bo attack would be required to be made until the result should, by the concentration of men and arms, be rendered certain.

The fertile valley, stretching from the great Northwest to the Golf of Mexieo, oace more in possession of the Union, to wtvich by every right it belongs, and ever shall belong, the insurrection must die for want of sustenance. To us of this section the navigation of the Mississippi, unobstructed by secession cannon and unhampered by secession impost tributes, is a natural necessity.

[from tb* Richmond Examiner, Feb 91 ] The Government of ths Southern Confederacy, eleoted by the people, under the orgtfaid law of the land, commences its ezis'enoe on a national fcolidav? to-morrow. The day is auspicious. The President and Vice President have received the greatest to&en of public faith and obedience ever given to the eleotive chiefs of any nation; they nave been chosen by an unanimous rote. Few governments have began to act in an hour of deeper gloom or greater peril, fiut there was once another envinned with yet greater dangers, enveloped with enemies yet moro formidable, with less sympathy abroad, surrounded by more traitors at homo. It was that of France, when the powers of the nation were placed in the hands of a Committee of Public Safety. Yet it scattered like heaps of chaff in a tempest the armies that were marching over the frontiers from every quarter of the compass; it made the domestic conspirators, whioh it found jubilant at the distress of the nation, burrow into the earth with terror; taught Europe to shako and sicken at the very name of France, and set her armies marching on the hii?h road to ererv canital on the continent. But the committee of public safety did not stand on dignity, humanity and the rules of civilized warfare when it commenced its memorable operations. It did not employ military Turveydrops to command its troops; nor did it fill its bureaus with disguised royalists, emigrant Englishmen, or lcrers of nice offices. It was earnest and grim as its own guillotine; it struck for life and death, for victory and self-preservation, at any cost of blood and pain and horror. It summoned to its side the men that were like herself?of powerful Intelligence, and fieroe determination?men who had no quarter to give or take, and who cared for nothing but quick success in that desperate business. Their charactcr rapidly pervaded every officer. Thoy awoke the nation wiih an awful cry. Every other thing was given over and given up to the battle, and defeat was rendered so much worse than death to generals and soldiers, that no mortal courage was firm enough to meet it. If this country is to escape the miseries of a protracted war, which may render the Confed - l_ i? .1 f . t i ?racy a o?u on ear;n xor ice next ten years, the Government which is to be inaugurated tomorrow must adopt the same energetic system. The kev-note to this affair was well and truly given by Jackson, of Alexandria. Had his evor-memorable example been properly appreciated, the Southern Confederacy would be safe at this time. This war should have been rendered a war of extermination from the first. Some counties, in that case, would have been terribly harried and distressed by the enemy; but we should have long since obtained all the terms we wanted, or the whole energy and f _ P ii i- i i i turce ut 1110 nation wouia now d? up. organised, and wrestling with irresistible power. It is not yet too late to ohange the vain and genteel, but fatal system that has prevailed till the enemy has lost all fear of us; till we have become the open scoff of the traitorous torles that fill our streets, our fields, the very departments of the government itself, who invite the tyrant to our rivers and our coasta, spoiling for the halter and the bullet, while hell yawns and gapes to receive them. Lord Lyons' Opinion or thk 8orthkrw Status.?Lord Lyon-, under date of December IS. thus expresses his opinion of the Southern Confederacy in a dispaioh to hu government: This overweening notion of their own importance may lead to very serious inconvenience, if they sh uld succeed in establishing tKaSv in^onnrnlnr-i. I I * f f IUV** HW|FVUUVM V V vi i UWWH 1 > I IUV1I UUHV/U is quite great euough to render it extremely desirable that we siiyuid be ougood term? with them, and eDconragu any disposition which they m*y show to pi ice their commercial relations with us on a mutually advantageous footing. We might be willing to consider that a quarrel with them w >uli give up no means of ameliorating the condition of their slaves, while it would bring ? great deal of hardship and ?uffering upon vast numbers of our own working people. But still it must ever be repugnant to our feelings to be in intimate relations with a con leaertinon lounaea on me avowed principle of perpetuallug, if not of extending slavery. Unless the seceding States can be induced to act with moderation upon the question of slavery, they m*y rouse a feeling of indignation and horror in <irent Britain which will overpower all consideration of material inter* eat. Of this many of their leading men in the ? resent movement do not seem to be aware, omt of them even talk openly of reviving the African slave trade. An attempt actually to do this would, it may be supposed, be at onoe put down by the united foroe of the northern States, Great Britain, and of civilised Europe. Bat, on the other hand, it might be extremely difficult to bring anj of the slaveholding State* to renonnoe, in principle, the right of trading in negroes, or to induce them to enter into any treaty engagement on the subject. Any such engagement would be regarded by them as an admission that they were in the wrong on the question on which their oontest with the North has so inflamed their passions that they have loet sight of all reason. How could they bind themselves not to extend to large? numbers of Africans the blessings of the imtitntiftfi of AmftwVftn slftvarv nrkuik >uw...?..uM va aaawvxvwM w mm ? v J y TfUIWH hUUJ hold to be ordained of God for the happiness and improvement of the negro race7 It is to be apprehended that we shall have very considerable difficulty in placing our relations, commercial or political, on a satisfactory footing with a peoplo imbued with such sentiments, immense as is the importance to us of procuring a oheap aad abundant supply of their staple commodity.

American Affairs In ParllnttMti Po*TLANB, Feb 27?The steamer Hlbernia, from Liverpool oo the 13th, and Londonderry on the 14th. arrived at a o'clock this afternoon. American affaira had been further debated on In the House of Lorda. The papers relative to the blockade were promised shortly by Earl Russell. European political intelligence Is unimportant. The steamer Etna, lor Newfoundland, was detained at Liverpool till the 13th Inst. In the House of Lords, Earl Camarven said he had received Information that no less than three British subjects were confined In the prisons of th#> Federal government, and had lain there fer some months and beendenlpd trial or releaie unlet* they took the oath of allegiance. He hoped the government would take earnest steps la the case at once and declare what was to be the position of British subjects In the Federal States. Earl Russell said that Earl Carmsrven could hardly ha*e read the paper* which had been laid on the table, for If he had he would have aeen that these caaes had been brought under1 he notice of the government Neither Lad he made allowance for the peculiar state of affairs in the United States, which justifies urgent measures In England, Parliament had given the government, In times of difficulty, authority to arrest persons on suspicion, and <t bad been frequently done without their being brought to trial. This government bad complained of the arbitrary manner in which these arrests had been made by the sole authority of the President, without legislative sanction. He was not disposed to a# tVia fifalaa rrnVfl?n m ant UCTlC-llU OLII VI VAiU V III Vt vvui^o ^V? w ?| Congress had decided that the prerogative belonged to the President, and if be believed that parties were engaged In treasonable conspiracies, as alleged, be (Lord Rassell) did not see how her Majesty's government could interfere with a practice absolutely necessary, although It was exercised with unnecessary harshness. The American government alleged they had undoubted proof of the complicity of these persons in conspiration. This her Majesty's government was not in a position to contrsdlct, but they had entered strong remonstrances against the manner In which the arrests were made and the prisoners treated. The case of these persons would be earnestly watched by them. Earl Russell, in a late letter to Sir Charles wyke, touching the rumor that Arcnauke Maximilian would be called to ths throne of Mexico, ays: "If the Mexican people, by a spontaneous movement, place the Austrian Archduke on the throne, there is nothing in convention to prevent it. On tbe other hand, we could be no parties to a forcible Intervention for this purpose. ' Paris letters say that Mr. Slidelt had been received by M. Thouvenel In a private capacity, his diplomatic assumption of character being distinctly ignored. Letters from Vienna are filled with lamentable accounts of the Inundation. The district submerged in Vienna alone comprises a population of fcO.OOO persons to be provided for. Several towns were also inundated by the Danube, including Presburg and Pestb. A severe engagement between the Turks and Montenegrins had taken place near Sestarl. The loss was heavy on both sides. COMMERCIAL.
