THE EVENING STAR The chances or pback in america. (from the London Spectator, July W.J The pablic mind to swlrgiug around again. Aiter believing for nearly two months that the South would be ultimately defeated. that the dauntless persistency of the North would wear ?at the fiery courage of Its opponent*, that ?amber* and will woald prevail alike over ?kill end "patriotism," it has suddenly arrived at tbe conviction that the eanee of the North to lost. Immediately after Q*n. Orant's first battle even tbe Tlmea wrote respectfully of tbe chances of tne invasion, bat the check suf fered in tne direct advance on Richmond, tne long paaee before Petersburg, the excessive rise In gold, the dismissal or resignation of Jlr. O^gce, the rumors of tbe "in vasion of Mary, land," and tbe natural recoil of over-excited anticipations, bave once more depressed tbe balance ; tbe Confederate loan has gone np to Tt, the conservative papers once more speak of ?nne victorious South," and the wildest ru mors, if only they tell to tbe disadvantage of the North, *re received with instant credit. All ih*? while the fact* of the ctse either re main exactly where toey were a year ago, or when they have altered, wlih one con sntenoas exception, to the advantage of the Fflertli. The military change baa conspicuously in their favor. Last year they were contending In the West for the Missis sippi, apprehended the loes of New Orleans, were duuotlul ef the fidelity of Missouri, and wh vered in policy for fear lest they should af front irretrievably the ?? nentral" politicians of the State of Kentucky. This year the Army of tbe Mississippi has quitted the ban lis of taut liver and fought Its way steadily and surely to the very heart of the Confederacy, has tra versed sncB a section of Georgia taat military oriiic* already discuss the possibility of Gen. 8berm?* intervening with decisive effect in the Virginia contest. This great result has, more over, been accomplished in tbe teeth of the Wrongest jesistance, of battles so severe that southerners estimate Gen. Sherman's losses at 30 M 0 men, of efforts so great tnat the South in obliged to explain defeat by the northern de vice of calling every fresh retreat a new stra tegical movement. Missouri Is either repentant or so completely Controlled that the Government can rely upon the action of the State Legislature, and Louis iana haa established agovernment which, how ???*T little It represents epioion, still prohibits the State from exerting any organised force on the Confederate side. Kentucky, which ruled the situation, baa just b* en placed under mar tial law, and even southerners bave ceased to speak of tbe campaign in the Far West. In Virginia, where the case seems so much worse tor tbe Federals, it is in reality even better Those seventy miles between Washington and Richmond which were pronouuced so impass able have been traversed?traversed in spite of ? resistance rising into the heroic?iraversed wl?h sncb loss to tbe defendants that (ien. Lee, boldest of all southern generals, is reduced to a policy of comparative inaction, suffers Gen Grant to march past him without attacking his ezpoeedjir.e, and leaves his ad versary south of Richmond rather than risk another general actio* * Thattbis advantage has been obtained at an immense sacrifice of lite is true, but the very first datum of the struggle is that the North ?aa afford thi6 loss, and that tbe South cannot The supply of men in tbe North is almost in sxhaastible, owing to immigration; that of men In the ??outh a strictly limited quantity Then tbe Southerners, we are told, are invading Maryland and going to capture Baltimore. So they were last year, although they did not leave a vast army in sight of their own capi tal, they bad one hundred and twenty thou*. n*d men instead of twenty thousand, and they were commanded by Lee iastoad of Ewell That was a true invasion, this is only a raid; "f! army might have captured Baltimore, this ort McH?nry. which commands the city, or tbe gunboats, which could lay tbe J?f IhiD-/h?it!;Athat re<>uired sudden return of the whole Army of the Potomac, this can be m*, i?. defeated by calling out the local and neighboring militia. The struggle is hot enough, no doubt, for these Southerners are good soldiers, they are fighting from the inside, and they have most audacious and able lead er*, but, taking the campaign as a whole, which is as yet the victor 1 Th^n take the political situation. In what to It worse than It was last yearl Three more States have been reduced, if not into hearty obedience to Washington, at least into a sullen acquiescence, which is comparatively almost as favorable. Two more have altered their constitutions, so as to abolish slavery forever, and so establish a community of iuteresu be tween themselves and the free States which allows of immigration. The President has given np bis last lingering hope of compro mise, and accepts a platform which, as re gards slavery, is in effect though not in theory, abolitionist. His rew Congress, which was to "? dens?cmtic, and to have con trolled him in the direction of peace, tarns out on all questions connected with war or slavery an ultra republican body. The coalition of governors which tried last year to dictate terms to the President, has aisappeared. and if Ubio to violent now, Illinois last year openly !?!~ be lrooP* sent to enforce the draft. The Times has a story that Governor Seymour has refused to send the militia to Washington. [This is one of the inventions of the Times cor respondent J But the rue in the value of goldI Is no doubt the very worst symptom in the whole as pect of northern politics, for it signifies that the war to becoming crushingly expensive. Prices rise with the fall in the currency, nntil, if the pro cess continues, a soldier's ration may cost uext year as much as turtle 6oup and champagne cost last. But what is the premium on gold throughout the great cities of the South J There to no fact better ascertained in modern politic* than that when a people is once determiued finance will not stop war. The Convention had I,'/ 0,000 men in the field when assiguats were at 1,000 per cent., and Russia drove out Napoleon and raised a new army to traverse Germany when they were almost valueless. The only efleet of the rise on the war is to com pel the Government to take the taxes in kind, and in the end te substitute requisitions for taxation. For tbe few articles required from abroad, snch, for instance, as saltpetre, the north can always pay, just as the South can pay, for it can use its store of corn as the South nte# its store of ootton. The rise in wages may derange labor, or even suspend it, but then the ?fleet of suspension may be, as In France, to hurl tbe laboring class into the ranks, where ?lone they are seen re of food. The North, if red need to a state of barter, with Its industry suspended and its commerce paralyzed, its finances ncn-existant and its private fortunes disappearing, can still, ir it will, while seed produces harvest, fight on to the end. The single question for politicians 1s now, as It was a year ago, the willingness of the northern people to endure all rather than see the South dep <rt If they are unwilling the question ends, but Where are the signs of tbe unwillingness ! * * * * ?ut 'or the hundredth time we re peat tbe one fact of American politics which our countrymen will never perceive? thatsub s'antial power in the United States rests with the country fieeholders; that they are, when combined and excited, more absolutely mast ers of the policy of their qpuntrythan the mid dle classes are of the policy of ours The electors la England could not defy the non electozs in arms; the northern freeholders have a complete supremacy in physical force; conld. If so Inclined, reduce the great cities to ashes and send all friends of compromise to serve against their will in tbe ranks. There to no power which can control this class, and it is the one of all others on which the currency ditfi cu uesfalls with least visible weight. Whatever >? wanting, corn will not be done without. Whatever can be given by the rich will be given to these men first and last of all. If gold be at one thousand premium bread will still support farmers, and the land ploughed by father and sens dees not obey Mr. Fessenden; woollen will still warm them and sheep yield lirJI, *"h?ut "king leave of Wall ^ will still fatten them, and pigs can cf men's sigh*C lb?U,h *old * barted out * 1i*ct'thew men look on *P?cie ^cumulating their small till.
