F. Tracy, Traveling Agent. SELECTIONS. liliiul Nut*, lor Peace Demwrats to Crack. Tiie New York World—supposed political ly to represent Gov. Seymour, Cox of Ohio, a id Democrats of that stripe as opposed to Messrs. Wood, Harris, Long & Co., thus shows up the absurdity of Mr.’ Long's propo sition to recognize the independence of tlie South : Kven if we should concede Mr. Long’s po sition that tlie Union once broken can never be recemented, it does by no means lollow, as he tries to maiutaiu, that the war should at ouce end by the recognition of Southern inde - peudence. If it Iw shown that this, his main inference, cannot be sustained, his views are of no immediate practical consequence one way or the other. .Suppose, then, it were to be conceded tiiat tlie scission is final; and suppose further that Mr. Fernando Wood, Mr. Vallandigham and Mr. Long were sent to Richmond as commis •iouers to negotiate a treaty of peace on the basis oi southern independence. If we could get over the slight obstacle of the unconquer able repugnance ol nine-tenths of the people of tlie North, the appointment, the journey, and the receptiou at the rebel capital, might be as merry as a marriage bell. Rut the mo ment the peace commissioners should descend from vague generalities to business-like pre cision, they would discover that they had gone on a fool’s errand. The South! Who can tell what the South is, that demands recognition? It is like a summer cloud, which changes its shape and dimensions with every puli' of wind, even while you are gaz ing at it. The question of boundaries would meet the commissioners at the threshold of Mi-- negotiation. A precise description of boundaries in terms borrowed from the vocab ulary of tlie laud surveyor, would form the main body of tlie first article of tlie treaty. Our commissioners, whatever their past sympathies, could not forget that they were negotiating ictllt a foreign government.— They could not without dishonor surrender an) fair or colorable claim of their own gov ernment without receiving therefor some equivalent advantage. In a war with any other foreign government to maintain a claim to disputed territory, we should insist on re taining all that we had conquered by our arms and bold iu secure military possession. Ia treating with the South ior iu indepen dence, our commissioners could not honora bly concede to it a larger territory than that hounded by its military lines. We should claim New Orleans and the greater part of Louisiana, a part ol Texas, tlie gieater part of Arkansas, the whole of Tennessee, half of Virginia, the forts that eounnaud the Chesa peske, the eastern portion of North Carolina, divers forts and military positions in Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina, and all the cities and strongholds on the Mississippi. Would tlie South negotiate on that basis? Only a fool can suppose it. But as the United States or ginally had unquestioned jurisdiction over the whole, what colorable claim could the South have to any more territory than it had wrested from us by its arms? Mr. Long’s is mere paper logic; it ignores tb.- more cogent logic of events. A war once begun, ceases to be within the control of cillicr of the par'Lie- to It, until they are mu tually exhausted, or sine of them lias gained such decisive military advantages that it can dictate terms to the other. Iu the present balance of advantages, neither the North nor tiie South could propose anything which the other would consent to accept, nay, which it would not resolutely reject at tiie cannon's mouth. The war can, at present, no more be stopped than could a skiff midway iu the cataract of the Niagara. If, then, we should adopt Mr. Long’s stand point, and regard the South as a foreign u a ti.m, every patriotic instinct, every impulse ol national pride, demands that our support be given to our own nation. If the southern profile hurt heroine foreigners, the logical in ference wouUlbc that they are no lunger en - till' d to our sympathies and consideration as fellow-countrymen. In that view, the nation al honor requires that we should wrest from them their territories with just as little com punction as England conquered the Canadas and all her North American possessions from France iu the seven years’ war. Mii.itaky Diiiu. in Schooi..—At a meet ing of the Massachusetts legislative committee ou military affairs ou Kaiday, the introduction ol'military drill into the public schools was strongly opposed by several persons, among them Uio Lewis, wlto said girls needed exe£ else more than boys, and for the latter only military drill was not the thing, as it made no provision for any exercise of the muscles of the upper part of the body. .1. A. Allen, su perintendent of tbe Westboro’ Itelorm School, also opposed the project, on the ground that nine leuths of ttie public school teachers are women, and therefore not good military com manders. William Lloyd Garrison made a “peace” speech to the same effect. The following extract of Henry Clay’s speech has been cut into the base of his hroti/.u Statue at New Orleans:—“If I could lie instru mental in eradicating this deepest stain, slave ry, from the character of our country, and re moving all cause of reproach on account of it, I would not exchange the proud satisfaction which I should enjoy, for the houor of all the triumphs ever decreed the most successful conqueror.” JAMES EDMOND & CO. commission mebchants, 13 LIBERTY SQUARE, ..
