the late whig party. ??" JfS,'X^^SrtJ!SSL? "? **?* ' LociKW, August S, IMS. Dm Sir-I fcwe received your WUr, and wn^oo Other ?mre?e entitled to wwpaet askiy ^expr^^of jy-g^'^^'Br^rsrsaa^ to party on i Nortwrn MCtiooil binii. YouC^iwsw tlut I h*?? withdraws from Um ??*!* ?f peliUas, intending to pass my days ^ *? ???*?} occuaatfons of rural life. Vet it seem* due to you, ud to Hlf-tMpMl, that I should not reAise to comply with your request. To withhold my o pinion in the pre eeat conjuncture would argue an indifference to the na tional welfare which I do not feel, and which would be incompatible with the allegiance which every citiaenowes to bin country. Sincerely coinciding in the views you bare advanced, honor and propriety demand that I sheuld s rtBure pv of my approval of your coarse. Whoever may abandon the principles of the whig party, in mtr estimation they are as valuable and important as ever. They are endeared to me by cherished recollec tions, sad by rears of honest e#ort ?n their defence ; they j. till have the sanction of my deliberate judgment. History will attest that the objects of the whig party rere eminently national, conservative and patriotic. To cesieat the hoods of union by a just regard for the rights of every section ; to maintain tne national character by the observance of justice In our foreign relations; to Ruard against executive abuses and encroachments, and to promote the moral, intellectual and material advance ment of the country by a wise exercise of the legislative power, were among its prominent aims. These are no ephemeral views, to be advocated to-day and renounced to-morrow; they involve great and cardinal principle*, which will be of continual recurrence and application in the administration of government, in every phase of our national progress. Regarding the elevation and prosperity ot the people as the only legitimate objects of political ef fort, and convinced by experience that the conservative doctrines and liberal measures for which we contended hitherto are really conducive to the public welfare, I pur pose to adhere to them. I am opposed to the dissolution of the whig party, aod come what may I will not disown its principles. If the whigs generally are prepared to disperse under a sentence of self condemnation; if a great and patriotic party Is about to commit suicide. Its own representatives acting as executioners, you most per mit me to wash my hands of the/cfotfe ??. I choose to tave no part or lot in the matter. A novel spectacle will be presented when the dele gates assemble in State Convention to perform the en viable office of pronouncing that the whig party is no mere. M has been suggested that they should speak for themselves, as some of their old associates, still loyal to principle and true to their antecedents, may question the validity of the funereal formalities. It will probably be urged in answer to our objections, that if we are de prived of our own party organization, another stands ready wttfc open arms to receive us, and that nothing more is Intended than a Protean change of shape. Hi other words, it is an exhillrating metamorphosis, and not political annihilation, to whicn we are summoned. This view of the case deserves serious attention. It brings us at once to the question whether the formation of a Northern party on grounds relating to negro slavery ex clusively, and ignoring the real objects for which our fe deral system was designed, is likely to prove salntary or useful. Will a party so constituted, confined as it must be to the free States, confer any practical good upon the country f Will its efforts advance the interests of liberty and civilisation f Can it emancipate a single (?lave or improve the condition of the African race? Will its struggles for supremacy strengthen the foun dations of American freedom and independence f Will ft de anything for commerce, (for Internal im provements, for domestic industry, or for the promo tion ef the general weliare? Is It consistent with the ex ample and teachings of our republican fibbers, or with the idea of a federal system, that the people on one side of (he Potomac should combine themselves Into a party to take possession of the government of the United States? On sober reflection, my honest judgment an swers me in the negative. Believing that a sectional combination of this kind is fraught with danger and mischief, it does not accord with my views of duty to enlist under its banner. In fe deral politics, I am not prepared to serve in any party which does not identify itself with the whole country by presenting broad national principles and a system of measures upon which good men in both sections, and in ?11 the State*, from Maine to California, cau unite in friendly oo-operation. If a Northern anti-slavery party is desirable, it must be desired that all the people of the free States Bhould enter into it. The very proposition implies that we are to be met by the people of the Southern States in solid array. We fcanuot close our eyes to the practical tendencies of such a conflict. Its effect must be to exasperate one part of the nation to ward the other part, and to weaken if not to banish those sentiments of friendship and brotherhood which gave birth to the constitution. In such a warfare, both tactions will be roused to fierce resentment by mutual insult and denunciation, until either cide will see on the other aliens and enemies instead ot friends and follow Cititeos; and in a word, we shall cease to be one people. it is contended that the Union is too strong, if not too sacred, to be endangered by angry contention between the North and the South. This may be true whHe the con test is oonfined to a band of sectional gladiators; but how long the federal compact would survive a partizan strug gle between the people of the free States and the people of the slave States, or to what degree mutual wrath and vengeance may be indulged with safety, are problem* upon which I choose not to speculate. But I will not hesitate to express my conviction, that if the time ever cornea when fraternal kindness and sympathy between the Slates shall be extinguished in the popular breast, and when the sectional animosity which is avowed in some quarters shall become the common sentiment of the Ame rican people, the Union will no longer be worth preserv ing. It will no longer be the union established hy Wash sigton and bin compatriot*, on the liroart founda tion of common interests, friendly ties and national pa you must not Uufr that my sentiments concerning n'.urrrj have undergone any change. My opposition to the introduction of slavery Into free territory is unalterable. As a representative I resisted it to the best of ay ability: as a citizen I will sustain all juat nn<l reasonable action calculated to confine tbe insti tution to its present limits. On this subject the posi tion of tbe Northern whiffs has been uniform and consistent; and why shall we leave the high ground we liar* occupied to rush into an unnatural alliance with reckless, unreasoning fanaticism? If I am not disposed to reduce the negro to a political stalking horse for party purposes, yon must not conclude that I am indifferent to his true wellhre. I would gladly co-operate in every ra tional plan for ameliorating his condition. But we are hardly called upon to forego all other considerations and ui;<ke fcia the exclusive object of our zeal and solicitude. in the first place, our power over the subject Is cod fined to very narrow limits. Each State must regulate and control the political status of its colored population. It is the undoubted right of every State to decide the question for itself, independent of external interference, li ell the people of the free States should join the aboli tionist*, Cher would not have the power to liberate a ??lave. In all it* essential proportions slavery as it exists would remain untouched. In our own State we have conferred a certain degree of freedom upon the colored race. But when shall they be permitted to vote, to hold office, and to participate in the blessings of social and political equality? Until this auestion is solved, it becomes us to exercise some charity toward tbe ci tineas of other States where the "African ele ment constitutes one-fourth or more of the whole population. It appears to me that our political action ehould be, directed to subjects over which we hare *ome eflaetlve control, instead of wasting our energies on question* which the constitution of the country has placed beyond our reach. We mar skirmish near the '?i4?o?t<j. but when slavery is abolished it must be (lone by t lie people in tbe slavcholding States. Whether they will. he converted to juster views of duty and humanity by perffean clamor, harsh reproaches, and constant of fury from the North, is an inquiry which appeal* to the candor of every honest philanthropist. It la contended, however, that the repeal of the Mis f o iri compromise not only justifies bnt demands .1 disso Intion ef national parties, and the formation of a North e-a party. We must admit that this feeling is natural, for the provocation was great. But in discharging our public responsibilities, ?< Id the personal and social rela tions of life, moderation is a virtue, and reason is wiser than renenge. The violation of the Missouri compact ? a? a great wrong, and an unmitigated calamity. \f it liad been the deliberate act of the whole Southern people, t-eparation would have become unavoidable But It wgi the Measure of a party, and not of a section, it wa* tbe wo;k of politicians and demagogues Irom both sections alA'ed bj a faithless administration. It was forced through Congress by party discipline and executive Influence, against tbe general sentiment of the whole country. It was not called for by the people of the South. On the contrary, thousands of conservative men in the slave states condemned the measure as dangerous, un just and aggressive. Instead of proclaiming a sectional war against the South, let us first appeal to that portion of 1 be Mouthers people who are still loyal to country and faithful <0 time-honored covenants, invoking them in the ?ame of patriotism and justice to come forward and aid in undoing tbe wrong of which we complain, and in restor ing that mutual confidence and good Will which impart to the national compact its true strength and its only value. The Kebraska Mil, based upon the absurd theory of territorial sovereignty, wa* an invitation to the friends and Ceea of slavery to rush in and struggle for the mastery.

To the Editor of the Commercial Advertiser, New York. SieloieM at the South. PROORE88 OF TBS YKLLOW FKVRK IN NORFOLK AMD PORTSMOUTH. (From the Baltimore Sun, August 13.] The steamer Louisiana, Captain Russell, ar rived here on Saturday morning from Nanaemond Bay, about thirty miles from Norfolk, with about 150 passengers, some of whom were from the far South, while a goodly number were from Nor folk and Portsmouth? fleeing thence on account of the prevalence of that human scourge, the yellow fever. Dr. Maund, on the part of the Baltimore Board of Health, was on board, and permitted the residents to take passage for Baltimore, upon their exhibiting a certificate from the health physicians of those porta, ce; tifying that the holder did not live in or near the infected places, and was also in the enjoyment of good health. Dr. Mannd states that he received intelligence from a surgeon of the United States Navy, to the effect that two cases of yellow fever had oct arred on Thursday on board the big ship Pennsylvania, and that both patients had been removed to a ves sel at anchor below Cr&ney Island, where it was tbe Intention >f the commanding officer to send all others, should any more occur. Dr. Maund did not receive any additional intelligence from Ports mouth, except that the fever was still making progress. The steamer Georgia, Capt. Pearson, arrived here yesterday morning, bringing over 200 passengers, a large number of whom were permitted to come up in the steamer by Dr. John Powell, one of the acting officers of oar Board of Health, subject to the restrictions already named. Most of these passengers are business men of the two cities, who did not feel safe in remaining there any longer. Reliable intelligence received by the Geor gia, states that eleven deaths and seventeen new canes bad occurred in Norfolk for the twenty-four hours preceding Saturday noon. Some of the pas sengers of the Georgia left their homes four or five days ago iu the hopes of finding good temporary fuarters, but were forced to proceed to this city, hey are now quartered at the principal hotels. As for the Baltimore Board of Health, they held a spe cial meeting on Friday afternoon, and again on Sa turday morning, but in the language of one of the memben, "did not transact any business of impor tance." Dr. Kemp* the city pnysician, states offi cially that the plan which has been adopted, appoint ing a competent physician to remain on each boat, works admirably. Thus far Baltimore has escaped a visitation of the scourge in the form of an epide mic, and the only mortality in the city worth speak ing of is the unusual prevalence of cholera infan tum, which is confined to little children under five years of age. [From the Richmond Dispatch, 14.] Fiom the Norfolk papers of yesterday we have the following reports of the Board of Health:? Thursday, 7 new cases and 2 deaths in city, 4 new cases and 1 death in hospital. Friday, 17 new cases and 4 deaths in city, ana 2 new cases and 7 deaths in hospital. Saturday, 7 new cases and 3 deaths in citv, and no new cane and l death iu buspltai. Since the 16th of July up to Saturday there had been 60 canes in Norfolk, of which 20 died. The editor of the Norfolk RuIUtin, in his issue of Saturday announces that in consequence of his hands leaving, the paper would be temporarily sus pended. The Howard Association had organized, with a sum of $3,000, for tha relief of the sick. Capt. W. B. Ferguson was elected President, James A. Saun ders Secretary, and Captain R. W. Bowdea, Trea surer. The Board of Health has determined hereafter to publish only the deaths that occur, and not the new cases. On Thursday there were two cases of yellow fever on board the Pennsylvania, and the patients were removed to a vessel at anchor below Craney Island, where all other cases occurring on tbe Pennyslvania would be carried. Two hundred persons, mostly prominent men of Norfolk "and Portsmouth, and their families, left Sunday in the steamer Georgia, for Baltimore. We find the following names published under the obituary head: ? Miss Susan Kemp, aged 16; Mrs. Elizabeth Camp; Mrs. Emma Tolan, aged 2a, and Mrs. Mary R. Webb, ago! 26. In Portsmouth, as we learn from the Sanitary Committee in the Transcript, which has again com menced publication, the deaths have been an follows: Tuesday, 9; Wednesday, 8; Thursday, 7; Friday, 7, Total, 31. The number of new cases had not been so great, and the disease had assumed a milder form. Much indignation prevailed in consequence of a number of citizens, who had escaped to the Magno lia Springs, organizing themselves into a Board of Health to prevent others from stopping there. Also, against the Commandant at Old Point, for denying the citizens permission to land there with their fami lies. Destruction of the government property was threatened. It is now with the greatest difficulty that a citizen could leave the town. The Naval Hos gital is now attended by Dr. Minor and Assistant urgeons Harrison anu Steele of the United States Navy. Three Sisters of Charity from .St Joseph's, Md., are also there. In the town of Suffolk, 450 had been raised and forwarded to Portsmouth for the relief of the suffer ers. We have the following information by way of telegraph from Petersburg : ? There were a large number of new cams in Nor folk on Sunday. Drs. Selden and Sylvester, and Samuel R.|Borum ? all prominent [citizens ? were down with the fever, as was also Mr. T. H. Brough ton, a son of the editor of the Herald. Gen. Millson and four others, with their families, chartered the steamer Coffee, and left Sunday for City Point. They arrived at Petersburg, and left yesterday morning on the Southern cars. Ia Portsmouth, on Sunday, one physician had six new cases of fever, and several others had occurred. A correspondent of the Petersburg Expmt. who in an acting member of the sanitary committee in Portsmouth, writes to that paper that the deaths per diem for the two days before Thursday were twelve. On Thursday he wrote ten permits for the aaval hos pitals. Dr. K. 11. Parker died on Friday. Charles Fisk, (son of the Mayor,) Dr. B.C.8pr?tfey, and Dr. J. N. KcboolHeld, were all convalescent. Fifteen new ewes occurred In Portsmouth on Thursday. Speaking of the disease and its effects, he says I " It is confined to no locality, bat In my opinion extends to cveiy part of Portsmouth. When taken into connection with the mortality, the infreqoeacy of the disease, oar bad state of preparation to meet It, the alarm it baa created, add the Immense num bers who have fled, I question whether any commu nity haa been as badly scourged and afflicted- The whole surrounding country is overrun? private houses, bans, kitchens, schoolhouses, churches, tents, cabins (and the Lord ooly knows what other kinds of shelter,) are all crammed. " I greatly apprehend that when the mortality of those who have led and those remaining shall be correctly summed up, it will be found far greater among toe former man the latter. The emigration has left us a deserted town? entire streets have only one or two families remaining, districts depopulated, hotels snd stores closed, business suspended, and society disrupted. Poor Portsmouth! Hhe presents a sad and desolate appearance, and some time must elapse before she can recover from the severe shock that has prostrated her." In Norfolk the fever prevailed to an alarming ex tent. One or two tents had been erected at the Pest Hob**, and other enlargements bad been made to accommodate the patients. The committee has secured the Race Field building. t?k ncrooKEs r*on po*tsmoct? an? NOBFOLX. [Curre>jM..n<l?ae<- of the Baltimore Sua, J _ ffuaww, August 14, 1IW.

We mentioned the fearful ravages made by the cholera at Perryrille, Maryland, in the family of Joseph Kaisin, stating that he was then down with the disease. He has since died. The fa mily consisted of husband, wife and six children. In a week's time all of them died except a small lad, who has recovered. Three of the children were un wisely sent to the almshouse, where two of them died; and, what is most unfortunate, they have in fected the premises there, two of the inmates having since died of a similar disease?one on Wednesday, and one on Friday. Charles Badger, who died on Friday, gorged himself with green corn and cucum ber against the positive orders of the overseer, and in a few hours wm a corpse. In Perrvville, a colored man died on Wednesday, in the house adjoining where Raisin lived. Supreme Court? -Special Term. Before Hon. Judge E. H. Cowle.s. TBS NINTH AVBNCE RAILROAD INJUNCTION. Wei-more and Other* vi. Story anW Othert. ? Atatrwt of Ojiinion. ? This case having been brought to a hearing liefore me at a special term of this court, I find the fol lowing facts ? First. Ihe permission to lay down a railroad track wan granted to the defendants, under certain resolutions set forth in the complaint passed by the Common Council of this city. Second. That such resolutions were accepted by the defendants, wlio executed the instrument provided there for in such resolutions. Third. That the defendants commenced the construc tion of such railway track within the time apeclfied in such resolutions. Fourth. That It ia not proved that any offer more fa vorable than the permiasion granted to the tax payer* of the city, or to passenger* in the cars to be run on such track, waa made in goodbith to such Common Council. Fifth. That the construction of such railroad along the line of either Washington or Greenwich street intermediate to the intersect ion of the northerly line ofReade street, and the southerly line of Cortlandt street, on the said Wash ington and Greenwich streets, would inflict serious pri vate injury upon the plaintiffs, in unduly obstructing them in approaching their respective places of business adjoining upon such streets, amounting, in it* effects and consequences, to a private nuisance to the plaintiffs; but on the other parts of the line would oc neither a pub lic nor a private nuisance. t'pon these facts I hold, first, as a matter of law. that all proper legal formalities have been complied with in the passage of such resolutions, requisite to render them valid. Second, that the construction of such road on the line of Washington and Greenwich streets, intermediate to the northerly line of Reade street and the southerly line of Cortlandt street, should be restrained; and for that purpose, and to that extent, the injunction is made perpetual, and as to all other parts thereof the same is to be dissolved.

The defendant, Kyle, was arrested in July, 1854, by nn order of the Superior Court, In the sum of one hun dred thousand dollars, for fraudulently selling and trans ferring upward* of thirteen hundred shares of the stock of the pliiintiffs, and has been ever since held in custody by the ?hprlff in of wi> juogmeui wm wu* tAinoj kj tbe said plaintiff* against the defendant for $206,624 60, on the 11th April, 1856, and Anthony Bye It, Esq., the counsel on behalf of the defendant, Kyle, now mores the court for his discharge from imprisonment and custody of the Sheriff, on the ground that the defendant had not been charged In execution. Benjamin I.. Bil linge, Esq. appeared as counsel for the plaintiffs, the New York and Harlem Railroad Company, and opposed the motion to discharge the defendant, on the ground that the plaintiffs, by statute and law In such case* made and provided, have three months from the expiration ?f the term of the court next following that in which Judg ment was obtained within which to charge the defend ant in execution, and that time had not yet expired. The court held that the judgment having been ob tained on the 11th April. 1866, the time ha* not elapsed within which the plaintiffs have the right to charge the defendant in execution, and for that reason the motion must be denied with cost';.

MOlfBY MARKET. Wednesday, Aug. 15 ? 6 P. M. The tendency of prices at the board thin morning was upward, with increased activity in the leading railroad stocks. New York Central, Heading pm<J Erie were operated in largely; Reading at better prices, and the other two at prices current at the clooe yesterday. Cumberland waa a Traction higher to-day, with Mies to aome extent. Michigan Cen tal still attract* the attention of (peculator*, but the bear* do not make much progress in depressing its market value. Other Western Railroad stocks were neglected to-day. Those sold realized lower prices. There wm more doing in State stocks, but the 49 mand for thia class of securities has nearly ceased. Prices have advanced to aboot the maximum points and speculation has therefore about run out for the sea son. l*rge purchases of Western Railroad stocks hare undoubtedly been made in anticipation of increased market value before the expiration of the fail months, from the large receipts of that period. The large earning* derived from the active movements of pro duce. will, withoat doubt, exert a favorable influence npon the next dividend, and give large return? oa the investment. From earnings realized during the prwt six months rery hsndaoae dividends have been declared, and the calculation that larger dividend* will be paid from larger re ceipts is a safe one. The purchase of certain rail road stock upon such data, is not a strictly specula tive transaction, but ia based cpon such strong pro babUtie*, that tie cfcanees of failure are very re. m*e. Productive aUcks are v?ry safe things to sptcaUtr ia, ar to bay to * Has, eithsr ou time or for r*h, (Ml ns*ro4f*4-s stocks fM>?nuJy absorb a the capital placed in them, either for direct torn* or to pt; accumulated interest. The market now is quite free from the wont cUm of fancy stocks, end speculators have been obliged to take hold of s bet ter kind of security. We here, therefore, been free from those disastrous panics which heretofore here so frequently end so suddenly appeared in Well street No targe fortunes are now nude end lost in Well street inside of a calendar month. The business of baying and selling stocks is now more legitimately carried on, and we trust It will be a long time before the Stock Exchange becomes again filled with the worthless trash which a few years ago absorbed so much capital and ruined so many speculators.

The arrival of the propeller Lebanon at this port from Liverpool, gives us three days later intelligence from all parts of Europe. The advices are not at all interesting or important. The commercial and financial accounts do not vary materially from those received by the previous steamer. Money was in more active demand. Consols closed at 91 J, which is no change. Quotations for cotton and breadstuff* were the same. The weather had not been favor able for the harvests, but no danger was apprehend ed. There bad been heavy arrivals of specie in London, the bulk of which was from this country. The warrants entered at the Treasuiy Department, Washington, on the 13th inst., were as follows :?

The suspension of traffic on the Ohio and Mississippi road had an unfavorable effect on the earnings of the Illinois Central. The directors of the New Haven Railroad have called a meeting of the stockholders, to be held at New Haven, on the 4th September, to pass resolu tions on the subject of the new laws which have passed the Connecticut Legislature, giving the com pany authority either to issue bonds, or compromise in itny way f)t? l?*Uoto vf uvcrlusucd StOClC* The laws in question require the legal acceptance of them by the stockholders before the directors can act on them. The St. Louis R rpubUcan of the 11th instant, says: ? Yesterday, at the Court Bouse door, a large amount of stock in the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad Company was sold at auction. It was not, until the sale was over, that the fact became generally known that such a transaction occurred, for there waa no notice of It, and as between the parties directly interested there was probably no oc casion for a competition in the way of bias. At this sale 20,453 shares of the "Eastern Division" of the road were knocked down in a lump at $10,000, to Mr. Louis B. Parsons. Subsequently, 1,876 shares of the "Western Division" were bought by the same gen tleman, at the rate of two dollars per share ? $50 a share. This, we understand, was an assignee's sale made by order of Mr. Samuel L. M. Barlow, assignee of Page a Bacon and B. D. Bacon, and was made made in confor mity with an order previously served upon O. M. Mitchell k Co., of Cinclnnatti, who are represented as assignors. The Lake Superior Journal says: ? We understand that the Cliff Mine has shown a mats of ure copper which has been computed to contain five undred tons. Two hundred tons have already been taken off the ma*". There are about five hundred tons of masse* In sight beside this. The company are about cutting a shaft through to another vein which has been discovered, and said to be much richer than .the one which they have been working. The effect of this upon the stock cannot but act favorably, and we hear that holders are confident that prices will reach three hun dred dollars per share, and no sellers at that. This is the company that has just declared a semi-annual divi dend of $8. Stock Exchange* Wkdnbrtmt. Aug 11 It 15, 1866. ?10*100 Ind St 6'? b60 86 X 1766 NY.

S.), states that the besiegers were opening new trenches, raising the heights and increasing the strength of the parapet* of their batteries, and opening new embrasures; and that, on the other hand, his loss had been moderate, and that the aorties ef the 7th and 8th were very successful. A Hamburg letter of the 24th of July, in the In<Upttl dancf Bflfff, says:? The Russian Admiral N'achimoff, who lately died of hi* wounds at Sebastopoi, was very well known at Hamburg. He repeatedly visited our city on his way from Russia ta England, where he was sent by the Emperor Nicholas, with two naval officers, to study the system of construc tion and armament practised in the government dock yards. That mission lasted nearly five years. Duriiqr tiis residence in England the admirul acquired a perfect knowledge of everything connected with the practical and theoretical administration of the royal navy. On his return from Ixrndon he was appointed by the Empe ror superintendent of the naval constructions at Nlcoo laieff. He belonged to a plebeian family, and bis brother is still at this moment a schoolmaster in the town uf tkaterinoslaw. The Russian government, having ordered an immeMO quantity of gunpowder to be conveyed from WLlna to 1'erekop, has offered very advantageous tends for that purpose to the Poliah owners of horses and cars. It engages to allow seven silver roubles per pood (about 38 lbs), or nearly ?3 3s. per cwt. Tho contractors most engage to deliver the gunpowder in 21 days at Perekop. The Paris Owuiitutimntl has an article considered aa intended to prepare the public mind for raising the siege of Sebastopoi in case tfi? pejt p]wul4 lail- ft**" !i is said, commanded l?y Kamlesch, which hold* it, so to speak, by the throat, cannot bo henceforth of any use to the Czar. An address was presented to Sir George Brown, at Lea mington. on 28th of July. In his reply he deprecated any change in the mode of officering the army, for it was pre. cisely because the officers were gentlemen that the men were so attached to them. He wished that the commit tee of inquiry had examined some French officers, who had associated with the English troops, and they would have found the allies formed a very different estimate of the merit of British troops from that which had been formed by some of their own countrymen. The Scotsman (Glasgow) of July 28th, say*:? Another change in the command in the Crimea has wo hear on good authority, become inevitable. General Simpson's state ofhcalth is such that he feels himself un equal fbr his duties; and the facts are so irresistible that already he holds the command only til! a successor cab be found. Lord Hardinge has gallantly offered to go out ; but he has teen excused, on the ground that there is no call for such a sacrifice after his great services and doubtless, also, because his vigor, which had previously sunk somewhat uudor the weight of years, may be sup posed to have been still further Impaired by the extreme anxieties and labors of the last few months. ? The Cnitnl Servict Gcucttc (London) has the following:? A letter from Edinburgh, from an old officer, says : " Here everyone asks everyone "Who la General Simp son V " and as the same question is probably asked to your part of the world also I send you two answers given to it the other dav by parties perfectly well acquainted with the new military meteor. A gentleman who had formerly served with, or under, Simpson, In India, but who '? now a laird of high degree, lately told a friend of mine that " the General was a first rate man, an officer of the highest talents, a hardheaded Scotsman, and tho very person to bring the campaign to a successful termi nation." On the other hand, an old lady, a neighbor of the General's family in the country, being congratulated on the promotion of her former friend, replied with the greatest naterfV? " Gude sauve us, we maun hae come to an awfu' pass, if we hae nae better help to look for than ony we can get trae Jimmy Simpson." Ihe Liverpool Pott of July 31 has the following items:? The Hansa, steam transport, arrived at Spithead on Saturday afternoon, from the East, with invalids, amongst whom were ten officers wounded in the attack on tko Kedan on the 18th inst. One of these brave soldiers, Lieut. C ol. Lowth, who was in a moribund state when the Hansa arrived, was, In direct opposition to the advice of the most competent authority, removed la a stretcher through the streets to his lodgings, where he died in half an hour afterwards. Omer Pacha's journey to Constantinople created some gossip, and the Paris correspondent of the Pout says that the Austrian telegraph wa? immediately set to work to tell the world that he had given in bis resignation. Al though the intrigues of the Divan are never at an end, it Is difficult to believe that this brave and (aithful cham pion of TurkeyVould quit his post at a moment when hi* valuable services are so much demanded. The (act U Omer Pacha was called to Constantinople to be con sulted on the threatening aspect of affairs in Asia. 1h** report of General Fimpsou's resignation gaias ground. lieut.
