THE HITUATION. < A lengthy Cabinet council was held in Washington yesterday, at which Gen. McClellan was present, but the rosults have not of course transpired. The rebels arc in constant motion, but with what object has not yet been ascertained. It was discovered by areconnoissance of our troops of the New York Thirty-seventh from Fort Albany yesterday, that the rebels had abandoned Munson's Hill. It was evident that they were also moving in large bodies lowards the ferries in the direction of Poolsville bud intelligence was obtained that Oen. Johnston fvnB pushing on from Leesburg towards the Potomac, probably to Point of Rocks or Harper's Ferry. All these movements may indicate a Change of plan, or they may be merely feints to deceive Gen. MoClellan. He cent observations down the Potomac have (ust resulted in the information that no rebel batteries are visible except those at Freestone Point, t>ut the oflicers employed in the reconnoissnnce lire convinced that the rebels have erected batteric.-. all along the river, though they are at pre?ent con-ealed by trees. It is only a few weeks Hgo that the Richmond papers boasted that the Potomac was closed by the rebel batteries, and the recont attacks on oiir vessels from Freestone Toint, taken in connection with the threat that the tiew frigate Pensacola would never be allowed to proceed to sea from the Washington Navy Yard, look as if the boast was not without some founda. tion. The news from Missouri is important. General Fromont and his staff had left St. Louis for Jeffer?on City on Friday. General Price was said to be making preparations to receive him warmly ut Lexington. General Lane, with a body of Union troops, made a forced march on Osceola, and succeeded in capturing a henry train of supplies destined for the armies of Generals llaitis and Price, together with 00,000 iu money. He was pushing on to make a junction with Sturges' command at Kansas City. Some of the officer* captured at Lexington arrived at Jefferson City, having been released on parole, and they state that General Price has a force there of 4?,000 men. The exact whereabouts of General Mc.Cullooh appears to be ? mystery. A strong column of rebels was reported moving north from Lexington, in the direction ofSt. Joseph; bit the released officers knew nothing of such a movement. Borne disposition on the pnrt of the rebels to iross the Potomac, near Point of Rocks, has been evinced within the past few days; but the vigilance of Colonel Geary, who commands the Union troops on the Maryland side, frustrated the design by tteiziiig the inmates of a farmer's house on that ihorc, who were making signals to the enemy, and ao attempt, to cross the river has since been made. The arrival of the privateer Sumter at Surinam on the 25th ult., which was before announced, is eonflrmcd by tho arrival of Dcmarara papers, which report her as having put into the former port for coal. A nephew of Jeff. Davis is said to be on board in the capacity of midshipman. We learn from Pensacola that the privateer Judith was captured there on the lith inst. by a boat expedition from the frigut^ Colorado. Three of the United States men were killed in the action. Another political prisoner was added yesterday to the number of those already incarcerated at Fort Lafayette, in the person of Mr. John H. Brayne, of I'hicarro. who was hrnncrlit. ?ji thia in an officer. The visit of Mr. Chase. Secretary of the Treasury. to this city, in connection with the new fifty million loan, has proved quite successfnl, our financiers having taken the full amount yesterday. During the day Mr. Chase took occasion to visit the Custom House, and made a minute examination of the detailed operations of every department, in company with Collector Barney, Mr. Pennison, the Naval Officer, and Mr. Andrews, the Surveyor of the Port. He expressed himself highly gratified with the workings of the Custom House. Intelligence has reached us that the rebel commissioners in England are endeavoring to procurc private-era in that quarter. It is said that a new acrew propeller had been built in Hartlepool and pailed for flymouth, armed with bix heavy guns, and fully mauned. It was also reported that Mr. Yancey has purchased two steamers, with lifting Rcrews, which are now lying in the Victoria dock at London. THE NKW8. The eqninoctial gale of Friday night was one of i unusual severity, though'happily unaccompanied | }iy any serious accidents in this city, or to the ! shipping in the rivers and bay, or along the coast ' k<> far as ascertained. The schooner Mary Anne ' Catharine, of Brooklyn, dragged her anchor and ! drifted against the yacht Bebecca, losing her main- j must and bowsprit and currying away the main- j Boom and bowsprit of the Bebecca by the collision. | In the intei i-ir, however, the storm was more dis- 1 u.-lr.'u- w ' effects.

Davis' army. The Judge took occasion to remark that j "in the State of New Jersey the writ of habeas corpus should be recognized." There is a line chance uow for some of tho prisoners in Fort Ijaiayeite. " John C. Breckinridge is reported to be in Mor gan county, Kentucky, trying to raise a party of 1 rebel followers. 1 The Paducali Herald and the Lexington States- t wan, two secession journals in Kentucky, have ^ ceased operations. The former was auppressud t by military authority, and the latter, liav- (| ing too heavy a load, disappeared in the mire. Three Iowa regiments?the Eighth, Lieutenant . Colonel Ueddes; the Ninth, Colonel Vandever, and tho Tenth, Colonel Perczel?arrived at St. Louis last week, in time, no doubt, to join Fremont's ex- 11 pedition up the Missouri river. L Thurlow Weed promises, if a regiment or brigade c of printers can be raised, that he wnl shoulder his c musket and march away to the war along with his | brethren ol the craft. c Professor La Mountain, of Troy, has been ordered ^ to report, with his balloon, to General McClell&u { at Washington. It is thought that lie will be j attached to the Commanding General's slall'. The October term of the United State* Circuit 8 Court will commence on Tuesday. Judge Nelson 11 has directed that a calendar of appeal cases be 0 made up for the next term of this Court, com- o mcncing on the third Monday of October. All t cases on this ralendar will be heard during the I term. Members of the bar are requested to order |< their copies of Apostles from tlie Clerk's Office, as c required by the rules, us early as possible. jThe Supreme Court, General Term, Judges Cfcrke, Ingraham and Leonard, have affirmed the Surrogate's decision in the lilaukman will case, directing that the will of Mrs. lilaukman be admitted 0 to probata. The Court also directs the appellauts ' to pay the cost*. t On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of last j week five million cartridges were sent away j from the Watervliet Arsenal to Washington, for f the use of the general government. Four cum- , plete six-pounder butteries and six thirty-two pounder batteries were also forwarded from the , same place. The committee of the State legislature held another meeting yesterday in reference to the expediency of opening various streets in the city, but no subject of any public interest came up before them. The City Judgo sentenced a number of prisoners yesterday in the General Sessions. James Murray, guilty of larceny, was sent to the penitentiary for six months and ordered to pay a fine of one hundred dollars. Walter Powell?against whom were two indictments for forgery in the third degree?pleaded guilty to one of them, and was sentenced to two years' imprisonment in the State prison. Win. Taggart. convicted of an assault with a dangerous weapon, was sent to the same institution for a similar period. James Wm. Adams, who pleaded guilty to grand larceny, was sent to Sing Sing prison for two years. Ttao cotton market was (juiet yesterday, and sales confined to uliiMit 2-">0 bales, In lots, closing at 21 VJc. for middling uplands; among the sales was a small lot of line Texas at 35c.

Wo have five ex-Presidents of the United j States still living and in a good atate of physi- j cal health?to wit: Martin Van Buren, John i Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Franklin I'ierce and i James Bnehanari. liow stand they on the war i questionT Taking them iu their chronological order, we shall briefly explain to the extent of the lights before us. Martin Van Huron keeps very shady. We seldom hear of him, he has become such a hermit and such a philosopher among his cabbages and potatoes, and ducks and chickens, at Linden wold. but for several years past, from the intimate relations of his son. the Prince John, with the rump of the New York democracy, and from the remarkable silence of tho old gentleman on this war question, we arc half inclined to snspi et that he belongs to the white feather faction of the Albany Regency. If wo are wrong in this impre-sion we shall be glad to eiiriect our mistake; and we should also llko to know, direct fnm Iviwlerhook. whether tin chi< i itatriun h ol' that quiot town lioido that ! IW YORK HERALl), SU] %? - JuV * ' 4 Iho late emancipation proclamation of Gen. Fremont tallica or conflicts with the Buffalo Platform. But, at all events, our loyal people of Now York and of tbo whole oouatry are curious to know the position of Martin Van Buren in the matter of this war, and now is the time for him to writo a letter on the crisis, admissible of no doubtful construction. John Tyler, who figured so conspicuously at Washington last February as the head of the so-called Border State Peace Conference, has turned out a full-fledged rebel. His summer seaside residence luear Old Point Comfort has been appropriated to the comfort of some of our army officers, and they expect to call upon the Captain at his winter quarters at the ancient little oity of Williamsburg before the winter is over, llis lust official act at Washington as a peacemaker waa u very cool specimen of secession insolence?a solemn protest against the insult to Virginia involved in the planting of cannon on the land side of Fortress Monroe. Millard Fillmore, it appears, lias lately declared himself out-and-out in favor of President Lincoln's conservative policy for the prosecution of the war, which is the best political platform that Fillmore has occupied during the ivholo of hiB public career. Franklin Pierce is fishy. lie lately attempted nut West a little patriotic speech; but itbetrayed only the white feather. This is not a matter of surprise if we look back to the facts and acts of his mischievous administration. When ho same into power he found the two sections of the country reconciled to each other, tl o slavery question adjusted, and he was under bonds to keep the peace. But ho was beguiled and became the tool of his Secretary of War, Jetf. Davis, and his Southern confederates in Congress; and thus, in reopening ,he slavery question, he inaugurated in Kansas lie issue and those scent's of civil war and rebellion which now menace the capital of our sountry and the very life of the nation. The mblic humiliation of poor Pierce, in conscience of his faithlessness to his trust, has been ;oo much for hltn. und doubtless lie would now je speaking the peace speeches 'of Brock" ariilge but for a wholesome four of Fort Lafay>tte. Lastly among these ex-Presidents we come to ifr. Buchanan. Compassion for the unhappy >1(1 man mid his many troubles, and the belief hat, though weak in the head, weak in the >ack and weak in the knees, he was trying to lo right, induced us to assist in keeping his lead above water to the last. Now, however, caving bis motives to the benefit of a doubt, he fact stands out in bold relief to all the vorld that Mr. Buchanan's administration is lirectly responsible for this great rebellion, tnd that a pennyworth of sound discretion and noral courage on his part would have nipped t in the bud. He could have done this in the timely dis. uission of the traitors of his Cabinet; he could tave done it by adopting the seasonable advice >f dun. Scott, urging a strong garrison in each if the forts at Charleston; he could have done it >y warning arid stopping the rebels when tin y omnienced the erection of their hostile bat cries around Fori Sumter; or, failing in all hese things, he could have rendered the rebelIon Impotent In Virginia by seasonable ineaurea for the safety of the Norfolk Navy Yard, mi great naval squadron there, and those stares if ammunition and those three thousand p'eces if artillery. But he tailed even ia this irnporant duty, and the consequence is, that Irom larper's Ferry to South Carolina the rebels lave lined the right bank of the rotomuc and if Chenapeake Bay and the sea shore with their orts and batteries, from that depot of federal iannon seized at Norfolk. And so, to the vanity and foolish ambition if poor Pierce, ami to the deplorable weakness, iltnrin?vjfl nnd proiliiliiv nf hla nn.?r nl<l a*t?_ lessor in office, the labors of a hundred rears of patriots and sages, and of the great Vmcrican people, in building up the glorious abric of this Union, have been brought to the rerge of destruction. Let us hope that, us our lext ex-1'resident, to " Honest Old Abe" will >eleng the glory of our country's salvation. The Ntw Governor Uintrul of CnnaiU, There is no question of the value and importnice of Canada as a dependency of the British Jrown, nor of the interest which England has in he issue of the great contest now being waged >n our own territory. In time of peace on this continent the government of that province, alhough always involving heavy responsibilities, :nay be conducted easily enough by any gentle" nan of average capacity. By simply abstaining Yom doing anything which in the ordinary souvse of his official career he Is not called ipon to do, and complying willingly with the >rdinary requirements of his office, he may live nit his term with satisfaction to himself and the lominunity uver which he presides as viceroy, ind, if possessed of good social qualities, nay even make himself extremely popuar. One ra?h measure, however, one ndiscreet action, may not only result n his being personally hated far and wide, but n drugging the British government into a ea of troubles. If, for instance, the Governor general of Canada, at a period like the present, (revoked a quarrel with the United States by my obnoxious act, his government would iuivitably have to fight, it out, and, whatever night have been the vanity or folly of its representative. it would have to reap the cunsepiences. And these have so often been severe tlrcady that the British government cannot plead to inexperience. The foolish and bombastic conduct of Sir John Bowring in China re suited in disasters the effect* of which are still viBlblc, and the unjust and tyrannical policy of ? certain Colonel Browne, Governor of New Zealand, who committed a flagrant breach of faith with the natives, has embroiled England in a Maori war, which in still raging, and has already bwn attended with heavy loss on both sides. These facts, to which hundreds more could be added had we the necessary space for their enumeration, sufficiently demonstrate the care that should be exercised in the appointment of men to places of distant and supreme authority. We are therefore the more surprised at the recent appointment of Lord Monck to the Governor Generalship of Canada. Who Lord Monck was remained almost :i mystery to the great majority of the people of England till his select ion by Lord Falmerston to be thp successor of Sir Edmund Head was announced. Upon inquiry, however, it was discovered that lie was nn Irish peer, whose antecedents disclosed the fact that lit* was once a member of the House of Commons, whose constituents did not think so u, !1 of him as to return him twice, and a junior Lord of the Treasury. Now those who know what the latter means art aware tbal it is equivalent to an SDAl, SEPTEMBER 29, 1861 M. P. resigning all hope of political proferment, 1 and almoet an acknowledgment of his incapacity ever to become a prominent member. Join Sudlier, the Irish banker, who committed sui" cide on Hampstead Heath somo years ago, had ^ been a Lord of the Treasury, and Mr. Gregory, the member for Galway and advocate of the [( rebel cause in tlio British Parliament, was re- ^ cently tendered the same office, bu* declined be" ^ cause it would havo ruined his political pros- ^ pectB. A Lord of the Treasury Is a mute In the ^ House, but is always presont to vote for the ^ government when a division takes place. He , is thus a useful dummy, and nothing more. ^ Now Lord Monck can point te nothing ^ higher in his brief official career than j having been one of those junior lords, whose ^ duties, a loading London journal has said,

j u_ ??.. ?in. i- P mnilj ire JJUI IUI lUVU 11J Ult' gUrll III II it could only be taught to say "hour, hear," at certain intervals during the ministerial j speeches. Why Lord Monck has been deputed tto (111 this important position?and especially ^ important at the present time?is explained by the Tact that he is the personal friend of Lord ^ Palmorston; and Lord Palmerston, through life, ^ has boen notorious for serving his friends, regardless of cost and the interests of the Crown. ^ The English press may well cry out against ^ the insult to the Canadians involved in this r( appointment. They have a right to some one of more tried capacity. It may be that Lord w Monck is the possessor of genius which only j. requires opportunity for its developement; but he has shown none of it so far; and a man who ^ is sent out to guide the destinies of Canada at j. such a time us this ought to be selected for qualities which he has already shown himself ^ to be possessed of. During their fits of pe riodicul restiveness the Canadians are a hard ^ people to govern, and they may soon be exposed to unusual exciting causes arising from tho war in the United States. The action of en the Governor General would in either case be of the greatest moment to the home govern- . rncnt, and it will be well for Great Britain to run as little risk us possible In tho choice of the ^ man to whom she entrust* so much of her aj fortunes in tbe New World. p Thr IiOii<l?n Quarterly Iievlrw on the |0 Knte of Our Democratic Iniillt ration*. | The London Quarterly, the organ of old tory ol ism in England, devotes an article to the discus- | Hun of American uirairs, in which it attempts to ^ demonstrate the downfall of democracy and the impossibility of permanence to repub" fi( lican institutions. To look for sympathy for democratic government from such a quarter* or condolence with tho republic in its mis" fortune, would be absurd. Hut we have a , ? ' la right to a fair statement of facts, and the j J Quarterly has no right to assume, as it docs ^ throughout, that the Union is at an end. Nor lias it any right to make such unfounded state . merits as that the Nkw Yokk IIbrald was .g mobbed, and compelled to change its course. aj 1 ho Ibciuu> was not mobbed. That fabrication , was set afloat by the Tribune. Nor have we tj, changed our ciiurse. We have been consistent m from the beginning. Wo have ever been for the ^ Union, and against all secessionists, whether at ^ the South or at the North?whether they were ^ the <r.Beii>los and followers of Yancey and Davis ^ or of Greeley ana Qairinon. Tfc? QimWit/j/ jg full of blunders, and betrays great ignorance on tLe subject on which it writes. The Union is not yet at an end, and therefore ^ the argument against democratic institutions, ^ founded on the contrary assumption, is fulla- re cious. It is true the republic is on its trial. rc We are struggling against the effects of j. tho anti-slavery poison instilled into the community by British propagandam, and when wo have succeeded in this the j republic will be stronger than ever, and th continue tn be worshipped by tbc downtroddon millions of Europe as the star of empire which ^ is to light them to liberty. It is remarkable that ^ the organs of English opinion, whether reviews ^ or journals, now ignoro the existence of the slavery question, and say little even about cotton. They exult in the fact that the wedge n tliey have inserted into the republic has split it in two, and this they regard as the consummation of their hopes and as a new lease of power tli to despotism in Europe. But they are prema- 0i ture. The end is not yet. Franco, in her first t| Revolution, had to wade through rivers of fi| blood, and to contend with domestic as well as s; foreign foes, including England; but her unity ra was maintained, and slje is to-day the greatest ta nation of Europe. England for a long seizes of w years had her soil deluged with blood in the 0. civil wars of the Roses. Was democracy the w cause of this, or was England ultimately di- u, vided? Again, by the wars of her Revolution, f\ extending over a period of about sixty years. w she was subjected to another fiery ordeal, U1 but again came out unscathed. What, right ha* ft, the Quarterly to conclude that the American re- 8( public will not also ride triumphant over the 0I waves? As well might we argue that monarchy m was the cause of the terrible revolutions and tt civil wars in France and England, and that \ monarchial institutions were there proved to w be a failure, as that the Quarterly should con- n elude that American democracy is a failure, and sc that it is the cause of the present civil war. bi Hut even supposing that the rebellion in this V country should finally result in two separate, w permanent governments, would that prove the A failure of democracy? As well might we prove me wiuure ui iuouarcnv ay wic partition 01 tne re kingdom of Peland, or by the separation of aj Portugal from Spain, or of* Belgium from IIol- ol land, or, moro recently, of Lombardy from Hi Austria. Nobody contends that democratic p< institutions arc perfect. They hare their ai weak as well as their strong points. But w the Quarterly completely fails to make di out a case against them. Jf the pi free States of the North wrro permanently in separated to-morrow from the slave States of ol the South, they would constitute a more power- si; ful empire than the British?the State of New I> York alone being equal in area to the whole h* of England. The trial of the republic, how- w evor, is not yet ended, and we do not ei despair of seeing the breach yet healed, though b< it may require much blood and treasure to to do it. If that should be accomplished E what will the Quarterly then say of the model di republic and it# institutions, and what becomes F of its arguments in favor of the blessings of ai European despotism, with it" perennial poverty, ai ignorance, misery and crime, and a taxation s< whose weight bows clown the people to the ol earth In spite of the hasty conclusions and tl Indecent rejoicing* of the Quarterly, the t< J American republic will survive the British ni j monarchy, and continue to be in the future as w it has been in the past, a standing menai-e to 11 absolute governri 'iit, and a bright and glorious A j example for the imitation \f all nations o > IrltUli Rjrmpalky With the Amrrlran llcbclllon?Tlie Oomcqntnoei to England. Consistency is a virtu* of which England has fiown herself to beaadly in want, in the course lie bos pursued towards this country since the utbrcak of the Southern rebellion. Those anicedents which stand out like landmarks in her iatory, und upon which she most prided herself, emi'd to huve been forgotten or disregarded y her statesmen of the present day. What are e to think of that Power which, in 1833, passed bill for the emancipation of every one of tbe BO.im slaves then within its dominions, and oted twenty millions of pounds sterling as jmpensation to their owners, and yet lately ;nt its support to slavery and slaveholders? That are we to think of that Power which had ... J 1 I- f -f ivmuhcu ovi iuuuij aim du ill ittvui ui itablished governments, and been so unsparing i its hostility to usurpers, and which, neverthe>sa, recenfly gave encouragement to insurreoonists? What reliance can we place upon the induct of a government which could thus run junter to its past history, and all that Chatam, Pitt and Wilberforco left as the legacy of leir laboi We can but institute a comparison bereen the attitude of England towards the tbels of 18G1 and that of Franco towards the ivolutionists of 1776. France was then the iost despotic monarchy in the world. But, ith a remarkable absonco of consistency, when 10 colonists of the Old Thirteen, goaded and ;>pressed by the tyrannical George III., rose > declare and fight for their independence, ranco extended to them the band of friendlip, and throughout the struggle which relltcd in the foundation of the United States io remained a prominent chumpion ot their lorious cause, liut the monarchical goverulent paid dearly for nou-adhcrence to those rincipleB of absolutism which had before aided the policy of tho nation; for the Rovoluon in America, with which the French peoplo id so deeply sympathized, gave them a new lea, which was not slow to develope itsell in te Revolution which overthrow the monarchy, [id gave birth to new institutions in ranee. Now, tho lute inconsistency of Engtnd is far greater than that of France t the period to which we refer, for the question f slavery had then not even become a subject f controversy. Whereas, for thirty years be>re this attempt of the Southern States to throw ildo the federal government and establish a parato slave confederacy, England had kept p a violent agitation against the "domestic initution," and for the sake of a principle had i>t only sacrificed her hundred millions of dolirs, but the prosperity of her West Indian colo es; lor ms notorious mat since Uio emaneipaon of tho negroes property has bocorac cointralively worthless, and trade at a standstill the British West Indies. Moreover England not taking part, as France did, in favor of 1 oppressed people making a determined struge to throw off an obnoxious yoke and achieve eir national independence. She is, by giving oral aid to the rebellious States, promoting ie most causeless and unprovoked insurrection ironicli'd in history, and, by buoying up the >pos of the Southern people, prolonging a oody conflict between those of her own kith ill kin. Whnt, therefore, will bo tho oll'oet ion the popular mind in England of examples ich as those??and, will tbey not be kely to recoil with disaster upon hcr\tl May we not indeed look for such a ivolution in England, following upon the bellion in this country, as succeeded to that, of :7C in France? 1b not the policy of the one >vernmcnt as likely to provoke it as was that the other?

The settlement of the Ilomaa question, which would confine the Pope to th? vauoan ana a garden, and make Koine the capital of Italy, would probably hurry the tottering steps of Pio Nono to the grave, however large might be the pension allowed him in consideration of the loss of his capital. But before departing thin life he would doubtless not forget to anathematize the eldest son of the Church for his wickedness in bartering Rome for Sardinia. When, therefore, we hear of an Insurrection in Iliing'iry we may look forward to Hung.iritui independence, to the capture of Venetia by tho Italians, to Rome being made tho capital of the new kingdom, and Sardinia being handed over to France. Meanwhile, we may expect to see Russia a neutral spectator, and England and Prussia in a situation where they cannot well help themselves, and which English and Prussian statesmen may perhaps Shudder to contemplate.
