He spoke of the irrepreeeible conflict between North and Houth which was to take K, and It has oome, not in hM children's lime, not in wn old age, but within a few months of the prodio- < tMb being uttered. Hence Mr. Seward M now supposed to represent the party of oonoeesion. He has made speeches so conciliatory , so cringing towards the South, that the ultra- republican party have denounced him as a political coward and a time-server. To oppose him there is, however , mors than cae member of Mr. Lin coln's- Cabinet, and It oannot he doubted that the opin ions of the abolitionists will be fully represented in the lew government. Which party is to prevail must deptad oa the personal judgment of the poiitloiau who has bean raised to the highest "position in the republic. Mr. Lincoln, of Illinois, is now President Lincoln of the United States. Although responsibility sobers men, it cannot change them Still lees can It import to them knowledge and experience. Mr. Lincoln is etiU the local politician, the honest man of a fanning Western State, with all the simplicity which belongs to tue pio neers of civilization, rhat such a man should enter on oOoe at the oris to of a nation's destiny M na small mat ter. One false step may plango the two Unions Into civil war, if it may be called ho when oie of the combatant Stales ostentatiously speaks of the citizens of the other as foreigners. At such a time it . is interesting to ex amine the speeches or the President and his subordi nate, the Vice President, with s view to dlsoover any indications of the policy that will And favor with the republican party. Mr. Lincoln was in Washington oa the 18th of Febrpa?y, only four days before his in auguration, and de ivered what was probably his lam speech as a private c'tizen. At such a tima It would seem that further concealment of intentions must houseless. A week would dUclose any secrets which might be locked up in (he Presidential b *om. The shook would ootne immediately after hi* assumption or power, and with the batteries or Charleston harbor reaiy shotted to open fire on fort Sum tar it would be folly to dissemble as to the future. Yet Mr. Llnco'a has nothing but gene ralities for hM audiense. The 111 feeling which exists between North sad South arises, according to Mr. Lincoln, Merely from a "mMunuerstanding." Ho wishes to convince the Southerners that "we regard you as in all things our equals; in all things entitled to the same respect and the same treat uent that we claim for ourselves;" and "are determined to give you, so far as lies in our hands, all yot* rights under the oonstltutloa, not grudgingly, but fully and fairly. " These are, no doubt, very esti mable remarks, but they are certainly somewhat vague when comlcg from a magistrate wno has the credit of firmness sad energy. Mr. Hamlin, the new Vice Presi dent. in a high flown speech, says:? "I do believe that It M only necessary for us to understand each other better to remove all the cloads that lower in the political horl *on." This may be shrewdness, it may indicate deep laid schemes of policy which are in due time to be made known. But we are unable to see the usefulness of fur ther reserve. The people of the United States are listen Is g every. moment for the beginning of a civil war; the first sh<t fired against Fort Sumter may possibly be the commencement of a bloody contest. At such a conjunc ture smooth words can avail nothing, and will only serve to convince the South that its opponents doubt the justice of their cause or detpalr of Its success.

COUNT CH. Dk GERMINY. Awfnl Haiasert sf the Craw or the Ameri can Whaling Blalp Superior, by tbe !Va tlve* of Trmary island, la the Solonaom Snap. [From the Sydnejr Herald, jaa. 21] The following letter, addressed to the edttor of tne Ht rald, by Captain Hugh Mair, of the schoonsr Ariel, has been handed to as by captain Devlin , of tbs Rebeoca, now lying at this port: ? I beg to inform you that I anchored at Rubltni (Solo mon Islands) on the 10th of November, and on the fol lowing day the schooner Artel, Slater master, arrived at the same place, paving touched at Treasury Island, three days previously. Ibe mate of the Ariel told me that ae had reason to believe that the American whaling ship Superior, of New Bedford, Woods master, had been laksa at the last named plaoe. 1 thereupon Immediately got under weigh and proceeded to Treasury Island, where the natives, as usual, came on board in considerable numbers, and, during the whole day were com ing and going, but did not offer anything for sale. This gave rise to increased suspicion, sad finding bat too much grounds lor my misgivings, I called oaa of the chiefs in(b the cabin, and told him that I knew of their < having taken the ship and murdered the crew, and that it was of no use for him to deny the fact. The man then confessed tnat it was the case, but said that bs bad had no hand in it, which I afterwards found out to be partly true. The next day the natives bfought part of the chip's sails (all cat up) , and several more articles whieh they wanted to anil; amongst the reat was the ahip'a log book. That day I lounl oat that six of her afaw were grlscners upon the island, and I at on< e set about trying > get possession of them. For three days more I craioed off the laland, having tbe natives backwards and forward daring th*t time. I went to the beach qocsaiamlly, ni could see the men , bat on every occasion they w4re strongly gutrded. None of the principal natives ooupig on board, as a last resource I had to seciue a native who was related to ons of the head chiefs. 1 put bUB ia irons, and next morning I took him ashore, and tjala oMred the natives to-oay them for tbe mea They aarssd at leet to let me have on*, who, on coming to ay float, gat* mc the dreadful intelligence that tbe whole or the o*ew of the 8operior, with the exception of himself and five ethers, bad been murdered ai>d the "shin brrat. It seeas there are two chiefs Implicated? Capes, the heafe| man, and ?aerioa Uuvnext. My prisonsr being a rota tive to America, I resolved to keep him until i got the two other men that chief had (for each of the two chief* had, it seems, two men), and I was finally enjussaful alter a great deal of trouble. Tbe three men, however, whom Or pan had possession of, 1 could aot get either ey persuasion or by threats. At night I prwceonad to the anchorage, where tbe ship ha I boon taken, acd remained there two day s. I saw no natives, but I found the ship a jibboom on the beach, togother with pieces of burnt Um ber. staves, to. i Tne bark Superior, R D. W?oA, neater (Wood? owner), of New Bedford, sailed from that part on the I 24th June, 1867. made Treasury Island on the 12th of September, ISM, aad came to anchor there on tbe same day. On the 18th, 1Mb and 1Mb of that month the crew were so ployed in wooding and watering, snd, from this men's statement, were vie I tod by a gnat number of native* armed. On Sun day, the 16th, nine ,of the crew went ashore The carpenter and t#? man went to tbe settlement and were murdered In one of tbe native huts. Hie natives then proceeded , In canoes aad overland , to tbe ship, and those who came by land fell ia with the remaining six close to tbs beach, and mortared them. About 160 na tivea got on board the verse! and made a rush on the crew, who were all on deck sxoept four, who were in bed. Those on deck were Immediately tomahawked, only two escaping by Jumping down the main hatchway, and joining the four below in the forecestle. Oao of the crew, whom I recovered, taw the captain and second mate murdered by a native called "Billy." who has been to Sydaey, aad aposki English well. The chief Co pan was the principal in this dreadful massacre. The six mea below, being armed with lanocs, kept the nttlres from coming down the forecsetle, until at last "Billy'' told my informant that if they came up they should not be hurt. At length, therefore, they did so, aid were at once surrounded , and by thn chief Copan ordered to be put to death. Ibe chief America offered to buy three of the men. and he persuaded Copan to keep the other three to till the grouad. These three, as I have already intima ted. I could not recover. Tne three man on board my vessel my they were well treated by the chief America, and they tell me that the native "Billy " was at tbe taking or the schooner Pearl, where I am now at anchor, about eighteen months b afore this happened. It Is said that he went ovor to Treasury Island in the Superior, and had an opportunity of seeing that there were no arms kept; there being only aeven old flint guns, aad none or them loaded when the ship was tsksn Twenty six men were butchered in cold blood, amongst whom waa a poor lad ten years of age? tbe crew consisting of thirty-two souls when sho anchored. The natives took Ave boats, with a quantity of oordage and sails, which were all cut up. and everatliing else was de atroyed by setting the ship on Ire. the Superior had on board 160 barrels or sperm and 160 barrels of right whale OIL In November last she was in Honolulu, and shipp?d in the Midas, for the United States, 2,683 lbs. of bone, 670 barrels of sperm and 230 barrels of whale oil, as shown by her log in my possession.

During the past two months the lower portion of the city seems to hare been Invested with a gang of daring burglars, bat, through the management of Mr. Fouche Kennedy, the facta of theee robberies have been with held from the public. There has been to the extent of nearly $60,000 worth of goods carried off In the tower wards, and within the above period ; but the parties who have met with a loaa hare been lead to believe that if nothing wu said their property would be recovered and the guilty parties arrested. It la bat a week 8f0, Of atrttot the tame time that the dar log attempt waa made to rob the New York Exchange Itatk, that a large wholesale house almost adjoining the Fifth ward atatlon house, was broke open and about 810 000 worth of goods carried off. The police knew e< thing of the matter antil the owners of Ihe (tore sude known to them their loss on the following morning the facts, as might be expectel, were suppressed, and, no doubt, the proprietors are laboring under the Impression that If they say but little about It thoy will recover their goods. Yesterday another heavy robbery waa am milled in the same ward, and had It not been for the vigl lance of onaff the detcoMveXoree.ths burglara wouM h*ve succeeded m getting away with about $8,000 worth of valuable goods It seems that between eleven and twelve o'clock yeaterday morning, as Detective K*?f? waa piss ing tarougb Worth street, he observed a well kaowa in divides), named Johnny Bender, a Jew burglar coming out of the rear door of the butlung No. 388 Broadway, corner of Worth street. Beoder seemed ae if be had a larger amount of cloth n< <>n than usual, and startled somewhat when he observed the officer. He was In the act of making off when officer Keefe eelaed him, and with the aseietanoe of de tective ' cole, who was also on hand, took Itender into custody. On examining him, there waa found over $t 000 worth of rich heavy lanes, embroideries, velvet* an t silk ribbons wound around his person and In his poclte's. Most of the goods were, however, found aroun J waist. The officers were satisfied that Bender had been to work In the build lag, and on going up to the seoond floor of the above building found the eeUbtlehm-nt of John Pallman & Co. , manufacturers and Importer' of embrolderlee, laces and silks, broken lato, asd th whole piece raneacked Render had undoubtedly en accomplice, who sucoeeded in making good his esc tpe by Jompirg over lato the hospital yard. Near the door were two large bondks, containing embroideries, laces, he , to the value of over $2,000, which Render's acorn pllce Immediately dropped when he saw his oompaslon arrested.

This ia not only doe me 1 necessary by the demand of the great commercial inter ests In consequence of the dissatisftotion growing o ' of the construction of the Morrill, but In consequenoe of the contemplated operations of tbo ad ministration In evacuating Fort Sumter and reinforcing Fort Pickens at Peosacola, both of which he dcterminel upon, an well as the collection of the revenue. Thi forts at Tortugos and Key West having alrea ly been reinforced with troops from Texas, much to the sur prise of the Commissioners and other secessionbts now here, the administration policy seems to be to follow this work up by throwing troops into Fort Pickens at Peuua oola, without delay, which will be done at whatever oust. TBI COLLECTION OF THE REVENUE. Wasbzvokm, March 31, 1801. A Western Senator had an interview with the Preei Jent yesterday, and made a strong appeal in behalf of the peo ple of his State In fttvor of eolleotlng the revenue In alj the seceded States. Tho President expressed hlayelf decidedly In favor of it so for as he was personally concerned, but remarked that before taking action In the matter It would be the subject of careful Investigation and oonsldsration ia Cabinet. # It is evidently the Intention of the administra tion not to inaugurate its policy at home until Its representatives abroad are all at their posts of duty, in order that no check may acorns by the represen tation or official acts of Ministers, who not only have no political sympathy with thtB administration, but some of whom are really in active co operation with its enemies all the new Ministers havs been requested to hasten their departure at their earliest possible convenience. Mr, Oorwln will leave New York on the llth of April ! In the Isthmus steamer for Havana, and'thence by British steamer to Vera Crux. lite secret of the recent letter from Mr. Pea. body, the London b inker, against cosrclon towards tho seceded 8tates, may be found in the fact that he holds eight hundred thousand dollars of the eight per oent bands Of the Viokhbari and 1? don Railroad In Missis | sippl, and part of the old United Stains Bank sssets. THE EFFECT OF THE MORRILL TARIFF IN EUROPE. A minister to one of Um lsadlng court* of Europe, In a letter to ? Mead la this city, received by Last null from Eu' rope, expresree the opinion that la the event or the passage of the Morrill tariff bill, hstbftgtaad aad Fraaoe will in very brief period reoogniee the Southern confederacy. His opinion la baaed upon (beta which have oome to his kn wo ledge through part tea beUtog laltaisU ratetloca with | thoee two great Powers. Tbere la little doubt, haaiys, that other Powers will follow the Mad of Eoglaad an J France. The revolution which la aow progressing la the United Stales wilt have a fearful aad damsglsg taflaeaoe throughout Europe. Brltiah aad French siatisassn al ready aaa it, aad will gladly pursue any policy to avert it. The English aad French Legations here do not heaitats to pronounce the report started by the New York papera of fitting oat la Englaad aad Frnaoa far the ia*irs of tha \ nited Slates to be without any foundation. The English .ad Frsach Ministers are of opinion that If aay such movement ma to be made they would probably have been infomed of the fact. They, therefore, regard this statement aa wholly unfounded, and look upon It aa a mischievous canard. It la known, moreover, that the Inatructions which the English govern ment have given their ageata la the Ualted 31 a tea ware explicit aad pceitlve, not to Interfere la aay manner whatever with aflklrs here, bnt scrupulously to avoid complications which might look or tend to sympathy with either section. The English legation bare been a wars of the fact that the English and French governments have bad la contemplation for some time, owing to tbt grcst activity prevailing In the slave trade, the pro priory of strengthening their squadron on the Afrlekn coaat, the alarming lncreaae of this traffic ha frequently been brought before the attantlon of the English Ministry and tho Ministry havs directed the attention of Spam to Ibis matter. It Is more than probable therefore that this powerful fleet which, it is slleged, is fitting out oon stst only of one or two veeaela daatlned for those waters. Mr. Russell, correspondent of the Iondon lima, will leave In a day or two for the Southern confederacy. His interview with the Commissioners from the conferdeate States was exceedingly agreeable and Interesting, when they Informed him that they were Mlolsters Plenipotcntia ry add bad foil power to treat upoo all questions at taut between tho two governments. Hs seemed to be tm pressed for the first time with tho magnitude of the Southern movement. {laving carefully surveyed the gentlemen composing the Cabinet of the Northern con federacy, he Is very desirous of seeing those composing the Southern confederacy. It Is understood that Seward Is opposed to an extra session of Oocgreaa and will yield oply to the pressure of events. From some unaccountable reason he thiuka the tsrilT will be finally acceptable to New York. Secretary Chate, It la naderstood, entertains catlrtly different views, and that the receipts from customs will be much reduced. I can state on perfectly reliable authority that no re tefbreements have been or will be sent to Fort Pickens. The Iribtmt asserta otherwise. A few days will show that the TVi^wns's staiemeat la a simple oaaard to affect the Ooonestlout tlasMona.
