' General rnarat'i PMltlra DtiMd Td? Qacittaa Btftn U* BaIUmn The letter of General frenunt *01100001118 the acceptauoo of his nomination m the candi date of the "radical democracy" of the late Cleveland Convention for the next Presidency very clearly defines his position. The single sentence of this letter, however, which de clares that we have to-day in Abraham Lin coln's administration "the abases of a military dictatorship without Its unity of action and vigor of execution" will suffice to show the reader that the precise ground upon which General Fremont standB is implacable hostility to the continuance of this administration in power. But, in order that there shall be no doubt upon the subject, General Fremont says:? "I' the Convention at Baltimore will nominate any man whose past life justifies a well g rounded confidence in his fidelity to our cardinal princi ples. there is no reason why there should be any division among the really patriotic men of the country. My own decided preference is to aid in this way (in supporting the Baltimore nomi nee1), and not to be myself a candidate. But if Mr. Lincoln should be renominated, as I be lieve it would be fatal to the country to en dorse a policy and renew a power which have coat us the lives of thousands of men, and needlessly put the country on the road to bankruptcy, there will remain no alternative but to organize against him every element of conscientious opposition, with the view to pre vent the misfortunes of hi? re-election." In other words, General Fremont says to the Baltimore Convention, which meets to-day: ? <;Drop Abraham Lincoln, and nominate a new man. and I am with you; but if yon put up Mr. Lincoln for a second term I will do my best, as an independent radical candidate, to defeat his election." This proposition is entitled to the respectful attention of the Convention, and cannot be safely disregarded as a bagatelle. General Fremont speaks nqt alone for himself, but as the orjan of a very considerable party at hia back, including, we suspect, a majority of the republican voters of New York, and the balance of power at least in every other State from New Jersey to California. This party, in the name of Fremont, or Fremont, as the or^an of this party. ba? taken this position against Abraham Lincoln, as a President who '-has been weighed in the balance and fouud want ing." Will the Baltimore Convention, then, in the renomination of Old Abe, determine to hazard the chances of his defoat and the success of the Chicago joint stock democratic candidate? That is the question to be settled. It will not meet the difficulty to say that Goneral Fremont lias allowed his personal dis appointments. bis offended vanity or some family quarrel to lead him into this outside Presidential movement. Whether these in sinuations be true or false, t?)e difficulty to be considered 5s that General Fremont is sup ported by an extensive organization of intelli gent and earnest men. who conscientioasly be lieve that Abraham Lincoln is a deplorable failure, and that another term to him of four years in the White House will be the ruin of the country, financially and politically, at home and abroad, tho ruin and destruction of our whole republican system, root and branch. The radicals, whose honest conviction? have thus been turned against Honest Old Abe, are not to be appeased by any raeaewre of re dress sboTt of his rejection at Baltimore or by the public. What the jugglers of the Convention will do in regard to this matter we cannot undertake to conjecture. We should judge, however, from the cautious but omiuoas observations of the New York Tribun ? npon the subject, that Hor ace Greeley and hi* disgusted radicals have had enough of Old Abe. and that they have an irou in the Are which wilt play the mischW with all the calculations r>r Mr. Seward and bis pood man Friday. Ttnrlow Weed. At all event*, we have this a?surance: that the bold, emphatic, consistent and strong position as sumed by Fremont and his independent rnd* cals. of all creeds and all nations, against Lin coln. secures the defeat of L'ncnln in June or in November -at Baltimore or before the grand jury of the people. Tik Worio on " Ttik Nkw Si run or Rich mond."?' The copperhead press of this city sees the campa'gn In Virginia in the same light in which the badly informed Mobile jratiers and the more intensely bitter of the Richmond papers see it. Grant is l< a fellow that hath had losses," and is still " on the north bank of the Chickabominy" ? and that is terrible. Still, the World could be satisfied with it if that were all. But it foresee* a siere of Richmond ?' under conditions extremely unfavorable to the I'tiion arms" ? ju?t. in tact. it h-o< every thing else. It even draws a fancy parallel between Richmond and Sebastopol. though it knows that ther* is not a point or similarity between the two places, and endeavors to glv? the impression that our operations before Rich mond maybe drawn out as the operations in the Crimea were -holding up a- a very dread ful bugbear '? a system of e.irttiwork defences like Todtleben's." Indeed, it considers that such a system of defences " may prolong this unhappy war Indefinitely.' Let us examine this very dreadful compari son between Richmond and Sebastopol. Se bastopol was a strongly fortified and well provisioned post a? one extemity of a great nation. When the Allie* sat down to the siege of that city they had hardly scratched the skin of the empire of which it was a psrt. Kvery where cl?ethe empire wa< intact, and its almost illimit ible resources and means of supply were undisturbed. No other serious attempt a^a-nst Russia wa? msde except there, and it could oflfer the whole resistance of a powerful snd ! warlike nation at that point. Moreover, the A. lies from fir=t to last, had no soldier of dls 1 tmguished ability in command of their armies. ! If we, in ihe commencement of the wsr, had stalled an expedition a/ainst the city of Mobile. | and made no other movement against the I Southern confederacy, that operation would i have been a par illello the siege of Sebastopol. Richmond, on the other hand, to the capital - the chief city? almost the only city? of a so called confederacy, exhausted by tfiree years of terrible war. It is partially fortified: it is not provisioned, and it cannot bo; for its com munications with points south of it have already been cut, and this cutting can be re peated at pleasure. And even the country from which it must be supplied la being con quered by ui, and Its lines of >upply are falling Into oai hands at tho other end. At tho proper lime we can, unquestionably, 'Vad gaah oaM up to the wharvee of ?W> etty. - ' ft* muqh (k U whole article to ft silly farrago. It aaserta tb?t Lee has not jet met with a defeat, tad that "it to as much a* oar army can do to drive the rebels out of hastily thrown up rifle pita." Tk* Htwi from Unropt- Great Reautloa ??d KicltcmrBt la Baglaad. By the arrival of the Virginia, Etna and China, from Liverpool, we have one week later news from Europe. The steamers Europa, City of Washington, Scotia and Bavaria had arrived at various Buglish porta, and the intelli gence they brought of Goneral Grant's forward moveinenta had created the greatest sensation and excitement Indeed, the Engliuh people and papers appear to be in a greater furor about our victories than we are. Experience baa taught us to view matters more philosophi cally, and to bear triumphs and defeats with more calmness, relying upon the ultimate suc cess of our arms, and displaying a serene and perfect confidence in Grant. But with Eng land the cuse is different. Iler sympathies are with the rebels, and every blow we deal them cuts her to the quick. Consequently *the late news has disturbed London, just as it has dis turbed Richmond, and the retreat of Lee shakes the British isles like an earthquake. When the first steamer arrived from New York (the Europa) the sensation is described as "profound." Cotton at once "beoame weaker.-' The London Times, which is in fact a rebel organ, thought it ' hard to discern the inclination of the balance, so evenly do the srules of battle appear to be weighed." This is a roundabout way of declaring that the Time* oould not say which side would win. The Post, Lord Palmerston's organ, saw "no appreciable advantage on either side," but recovered its equanimity the next day, and an nounced that we bad "sustained a crushing defoat." The London Stnr was afraid that Grant bad paid too deaily for his victory; which wis rery kind of the Star, since no regrets were expressed that Lee had paid too dearly for bis defeat. The Morning Hfruld, which is in the pay of the re bels, pronounced Grant's advanoe "a failure," and will continue to pronounce it so after Grant lias taken Richmond. The Gl<J>e stated that " Lee was fully successful in barring the road of General Grant to Richmond but the Lon don G'obe is like the New York Worid? a great deal behind the age, and very apt to be mista ken about our war. As a commentary upon all these newspaper opiniors, it may be men tioned that the pirate Georgia was immedialely advertised for private 3ale, her craw dismissed and her stores sold at auction. Well, while matters were in this position, along came the City of Washington with more news from Grant. This " increased the excite - mont and sensation." The newspapers did not strive so hard to argue down these successes. On the contrary, we are told that " the ncw^ was inot-t generally regarded as very disastrous to the rebel cause." The rebel loan at once declined, and was quoted at five or six per cent lower. Five or six per cent is not much of a decline here, where stocks fluctuate ten per cent in a single day; but In sober, steady, dog trot England, such a fall means miscbief. John Bull be?an to feel Grant's sword slashing away at his tenderest point? not at bis heart-strings, but at his purse-strings ? and we very decidedly fear that he lost some money by this decline. Then came the most signifi cant result of all: the British government purchased the Laird rams. Afraid to let them go.' unwilling to ask Parliament for a more stringent law to confiscate them, and tired of holdiug them in tfuspensc, like Mahomet's coffin, the government oacapefl from the dilem ma by buying up these troublesome vessels-of war. Grant's campaign in Virginia brought Karl Russell to thia sage conclusion, just as his capture of Vickaburg caused the stopQygaJ of these very rams a year ago. Had the news' been the other way ? had Lee defeated Grant ? undoubtedly the rams would have been re leased to prey upon our commerce.. This pur ohane in, therefore, equivalent to a grand Union victory abroad. In the midst of the "increased excitement" to which wc have referred, the Scotia sailed into Liverpool with ui'>rc news from Grant. This seems to have capped the climax. On the morning after the arrival of the Scotia the London 77 w? had au article endeavoring to show that the rebellion would nol be suhdued even i( (.'rant did capture Richmond, and that its downfall will co-t a great loss of life. This is a practical confession that Richmond will probably be taken. It is refreshing to read such mournful passages abo.it the value of human life in the columns of the representa tive newspaper of a country noted for her piracies during hundred* of year* past, and celebrated a!ike.foi her conquest*, her opintu war, her ma-"?acj,e of the Sepoys and her starvation s?*t<?m of labor. The nation whose hittoiv is written in blond may weil lecture us upon the horrots of war. The nation that punished her rebels by blowing them from cannons' mouths may well s<gh at our inhu manity and shut her eyes to Southern barbari ties The nation who?e operatives have been subsisted b* our bounty may weil gronn over tbe cost of reunion. As for the taking of Richmond, that may or may nof end the rebel lion. We arc going to try it and see what effect it will have. We do not believe it will hurt our cause very severely, even if it does I not crush tbe confederacy. After Richmond has fallen we ean go on taking place* until the rebel cau^e is lost. This attempt of the Tints to prepare the wny for the news of the capture of the rebel capital is very shrewd and very amUHintr It shows that weakness, distrust, despondency and despair now possess the se cession sympathizers abroad, and that they 1 aorrowfidly expect the worst anil do nvt know exactly how to meet it. On the whole, we are almojt a* much delighted with the news from Europe as Europeans are disgusted with the news from America, and we t,i'?e ijreat pleasure 1 in placing our foreign advices before our lead ! ors this taorninir.

It lias recently been suggested that these adver tisements are aimply a means of communicat. ing contraband information to the enemy, and aa each tbe papers publishing them are liable to a ?barge of giving aid and cemfort to the foe. II has bean an old dodge, held la mack favar by oottoa, stack, gold, produce aad all ?ttaMriada of fpeoulating jobbers, to oommu cities the ?talc of nark eta, or any Important went, bj lifting tuck familiar expressions as "Mary is bolter," "William is worse," ''Robert remain* unchanged," "Susan bad bet ter not come," Arc., Ac. ? all of which la under stood by the persona receiving the telegram* to mean to convey commercial and speculating advices, and not domestic intelligence of any kind. The "Personal" advertisements in these papers of rebel sympathies are, in most cases, used for similar purpeses. For instance, when an advertiser pretends to say to some mythical John Brown in Richmond that "Peter Jonea is well and at home" it may convey the meaning that reinforcements have boeu sent to Butler, or that Baldy Smith is weak, or tliut the Union forces are separated, that lluokman is open to a midnight assault, that certain points on Grant's grand line can be carried by sudden dashes, or, in short, any other information that a cipher telegram might communicate, and the party sending it be entirely ignorant of its true meaning. The authorities should look into this matter. It is one of much importance, as it is known almost to a positive certainty that the rebels receive information of the movements of the Union foroea by some means or other; and no channel is more likely to be the real one than the rebel press in the North, through the agency of their 'Personal" advertisements.
