Printin g of every description executed wltn dispatch. F. Tract. Traveling Agent. COMMUNICATIONS. Letter from an English Gentleman on American Affairs. To the Editor of the Press:— 13 Wentworth Street. ) Eccrton, Liverpool, Mail, 'til. j' Sir:—Some twelve months ago copious ex tracts from a letter of rniuc, addressed to a friend in the State of Maiue, found their way into the columns of an Americau paper. Hav ing something more to say about the events now transpiring in your country, I thought it pos sible that my cousins across the water would again listen without impatience to the thoughts of an Englishman on their domestic affairs. And this time I have preferred a di rect to an indirect communication with the American press, through the.column-, if I am so favored, of your paper. Politicians are impelled to action here, as elsewhere, much more frequently by the inter ests and passions of the uation than by the claims of Justice and Keasou; and in view of this, there is one fact, here, the importance ol which cannot be overestimated. It is that the full weight of the calamity which the wrath of “King Cotton” has inflicted upon our country has been felt and borne, with this result, that the sceptre of that monarch is broken, and his terror no longer disturbs the serenity of statesmen or people. The staple commodity ot Lancashire industry is fast flowing iu from other quarters, under the ir resislable iuducement of high prices; aud the market value of manufactured goods having established its true relation to the cost of the raw material, the number of persous in full or partial employment is steadily on the increase. Lancashire, then, is not perishing of hunger. No infuriated mobs perambulate our streets, the stability of the stale is not endangered, and the throne still rests firmly on its old founda tions. England will not, therefore, be impell ed by her interests, as your rebels supposed, to arm aud strengthen the sacreligious baud that strikes at law, order, and the inalienable rights of men and States. Even when the worst threatened us, duty, declaring Itself by the strong, clear voice of public opiuion, over awed the clamor of the heartless, noisy lew who gave to interest the precedence of right. But now interest does not even appear to op pose itself to the claims of justice and reason jmju ii, nueu uus uppusiuuu exisieu we were English enough to prefer right to cot ten bales, ! in the presence of starving millions, note the rebellious States will vainly wait for a helping hand from those who so heartily bate the sla very which the South would perpetuate. It Is true that there arc people here who lean to the South because they desire to see your great Uuion weakened, and the expert ment of purely popular government end in failure. The people who live by privileges ol doubtful character, who get fat by making other i>eople lean, who look upon a rotten-ripe abuse as part of their daily bread, aud defend it as they would their hearths and homes, these are the people who wish to see your re public dismembered, and who would dance wildly over the grave of freedom anywhere. They know that if your people failed in the will, wisdom and power, to repress Internal rebellion, they could point the finger of scorn at the signal failure of popular institutions to secure the great eud of government, the pre serration of order aud liberty within the bor ders of the republic. They look forward, per haps, to the lime wheu they can play off the rival republics one against the other, wheu each will be compelled to waste annual mil lions in the maintenance of fleets aud armies as a protection against its neighbour. Nor would slavery itself be very abhorren to from the fectiugs of a class who believe that the people exist to obey laws, pay taxes, aud serve tlieir superiors, and should have nothing else to do with laws, taxes and their betters, but to obey, pay aud serve them. But this smalt section is not the British nation, and the day is not far distant when it will smartly feel that It is not. Toryism, which is, in geueral, conservative of abuses and the darkness that cloaks them, aud destruction of liberty aud the light that promotes it, leans with a quite natural proclivity to the South. And tne “Times,” which does not represent opin ion here, put repeats to the aristocracy of money and rank, what they think or ought to think upon things in geueral, secured to it sell long ago a sort of copyright iu the epi thets of abuse that could be heaped upon the North. But don’t bo afraid of the “Times.” "Tlie one purpose of its existence is to keep the position it holds, aud if money and rank here are against you, it will vituperate you souud ly in its excess of skin-deep anger; but when you are thoroughly successful, it will Hur rah! for you with a lustiness that will aston ish even my American cousins. Nay, it will have the impudence to take its place in the triumphal car of the conqueror, aud bear aloft the banner Inscribed with the motto, “We did it.” But the solid opinion of the nation is with you ; aud the South, so far as England is concerned, tights single-handed. But you will naturally place against this the fact that vessels of war have been built here for the rebel States. It is trne that the case of the Alexandra, brought at length, be fore our highest legal tribunal, the House of Lords, has been decided in a manner nqt sat istactory to the friends of the North. But, I believe, that the decision was based upon grounds purely legal, aud if it does not ac cord with equity, the state of our municipal law, aud not the legality of the decision must be called in question. It turns out, in fact, that the Foreign Enlistment Act, passed in 1819, does not prohibit the construction of vessels of war for fereign states, but, simply, the equip tile at of them. Now, it was decid ed that the Alexaudra was not equipped, hence the ruling of the judges. But when the Act iu question was passed, the construe-, tion ot 6hips of war progressed so slowly, {hat a war might beglu and end, between lay in? down the keel aud the corapletoin ol the ship. Besides it was believed, doubtless, that a vessel must remain inactive in the port in which she was constructed until she had re ceived her equipment. Hence the Act provid ed against the only breach of neutrality likely to occur, that of the equipment of vessels of tvar for foreign states. The case of the formidable rams, recently built by Laird of Birkenhead, is not yet de cided. The Pasha of Egypt, poor man, is to be put to the question, on a matter upon which he has nothing to say, as everybody * knows, very well. Imagine the astonishment of the Pasha, as he rises slowly and with dif ficulty through the fumes of his chibauk, to a comprehension of the fact that he is suspect ed of having ordered the steam rains to serve I his private ends. If Pashas ever laugh, sure ly he will laugli; or, perhaps, in a paroxysm | of wrath he will howstriug the inquisitors. Some months ago I went on board the El Tous saint, so called I suppose, to gain by au eastern name, credit for an eastern destination. And if any vsssel ever bore her purpose upon her front, that certainly appears to me to have all the characteristics ol' a most dangerous and effective weapon. And if the circulating i towers she carries, pierced on one side for two heavy guns can be, as I think they must, called part of her equipment, then most cer tainly that vessel was pariallly equipped for warlike purposes, aud is caught ou the lee shore of the law. But on the iggal question 1 speak with diffidence when doctors thern ! selves so widely differ. What I wish to get understood is that, if private firms dishonor ably engage in transactions which militate against perfect neutrality, they can only be successful from defects iu our municipal law, and not from any waut of desire on the part of the government to maintain that neutrali ty ilniniiiaired. We have news of the capture of Fort Pil low, aud the most atrocios massacre of its de feuders. And it is the universal feeling, here, thatsiuce the republic has accepted the servi ces of coloured soldiers, it is bound to accord to them the same protection as to others, and to assert for them all the immunities aud pri vileges accorded to the vanquished or captur ed iu civilised warlare. This horrible breach of the rules ot modern warfare deserves the swiftest aud severest punishment; still the thought of retaliating upon the South by tii^ punishment of those not concerned in the atrocity may well give praise to your noble President. Hut guerilla successes like that achieved by the rebels at Fort Pillow du not affect the general result of the war. For al ready you have so broken the power of the rebels that they cau no longer point to a clear ly defined boundary; the coasts of the South are watched, aud their outlets almost sealed by your armed ships; the rebels have no ports of importance of which they can claim uadis Duled possesiou, the Mississippi the great ar tery of inland communication is in your bauds; and the locality of the capital of the Confed eracy may iu a few weeks be as indefinite as that of Weissuieblwo. There is, then, no cau-e for despondency on the part of the friends of the Union. And if an Englishman, standing apart from the rapidcurrent of action now rushiug on in the Ne w World, aud freed from the illusions which the excitement and immediate pressure of great events conjure up, sometimes, in the minds of the strongest, expresses his view of the situation as it is to day, it may not be without its interest and use. It appears to me, then, that the causes of the war still exist in scarcely abated force. And if, at the beginning, the war into which the Union has entered with its rebellious cit izens, was just aud necessary, it is not less so to-day. Fur there are still in the field arm ed forces fighting against the constituted au thorities of a government of which those who form these forces are the subjects. Still the interests and base ambition ol the few mislead the many into conflict for a con federacy which would insult humanity and civilization by importing into the nineteenth century Lhe revolting anachronism of a slave republic. The great people of the Union are still asked to submit to the disintegration of their territory, and to confess their inability to protect themselves against the worst re sults of intestine strife. It is stiil demanded of them, at the bayonet's point, to submit to the establishment on llieir frontiers of a pow er which, by the very nature of its institutions, must always be latently or actively hostile.— You are still asked to confess that there are not loyalty aud euergy enough in your repub lic to repress rebellion against its own execu tivt> nnti The crime of high treason against a great nation is still beiug committed; and the ques tion is, has that nation the power, as it has the right to punish tlie criminals aud subject them to the laws. In fact, all the issues raised at the beginning exist still. Your nation appeal- , ed to the legitimate tribunal of opinion as to the principles that should hold sway in the States. Beaten in that high court of appeal, the reiiel States asked lor the sharp decision of force. What, then, remained, aud still re mains, but tbe question, can the great people of tbe Union, ti cl armis, maintain the au thority of the laws aud the integrity of the federation ? Were you not compelled to take up the ground and tlie weapons chosen by rebels, and is uot tlie necessity imposed upon you of carrying on tlie conflict on that ground and with these weapous to the bitter end?— In truth, it seems to me, going back to tbe origin oi this conflict, that tbe Uniou it not fighting its own battle alone, but that of hu manity for ail time. Y'ou are solving the problem whether mankind are capable of self government, whether nations without an-, tocracies, aristocracies or other despotisms can preserve liberty aud order within, and loyalty aud strength enough to repel assaults from without. Y'ou are solving the problem whether the federal government has, at ouc$, flexibility enough to adapt itself to the vari ous conditions of a widely extended territory, and siillicient strength aud cohesion to keep all its parts in due aud proper subordination to tbe central authority. These points are now nub lite, and the result of this conflict will pronouuee the decision. True the couflict in which you are engaged was a terrible alternative, but was it not, aud is it not, the only one ? It is sad that in the j cause of justice, humanity aud ttie legitimate authority of tlie republic, your people should be forced into civil strife. The scythe of war has swept sharply through your land, and de prived mauy homes of their loved oues. And that this terrible struggle must, at best, have its benefits counterpoised by a heavy weight of sorrow and misery, cannot be doubted.— But what can you do ? Is force to go with lawless rebellion, marching on with armed heel to its objects, while the legitimate au thority of tlie State replies with nothing but words ? There are worse things for a great people than tlie death of the bravest of its sons.— Acquiescence in the violence, and fraud that would send away from the Union its territory and people, that would defy the authority of the executive and laws, that would insult a Christian laud in Christian times by the crea tion of a slave, power—that is worse. Your government is that of the people, and is uot the iron oppression of a despot which, restiug ou force, may be resisted by force. The Un ion is not an Austria crushing another Hun gary and Italy. It is uot even an aristocrat! government systematically oppressing a pec pie by unjust exactions and unequal laws. I is tiiat of the nation legislatiug by Its repre sentatives, asking by its executive, aud ac cepting for its guide the deliberately express ed opinion of the majority. The right he longs equally to all—to the South as well a to the North—to assist in the formation o that opinion by the plattorm and the press. To me it appears that, not more by the j us tice of its cause than by the immensity of it resources, the superiority of its military pow er, and its overwhelming preponderance at sea the Union must ultimately bring to reason it rebellious citizens. Outpost successes by tin rebels, or even occasional victories in import ant engagements will uot alter the inevitabli result that must ensue from the great dispart ty ot power and resources. Indeed, my owt opinion is, that the persona! ambition of th< leaders lias much more to do with (he proton gation of the contest, than the interests or pas sious of the Southern people. Slavery for thi muiutainance and extension of which, th< conflict was forced on, is now decaying to at early demise. If then, the South must very soon in any case, accept the sy stem of free la hor, ail motives for the continuance of the wat derived from the interests of the planters, are at an end. And the many have already suffer ed sufficiently for the interests of the few tc make them desire a speedy termination of the contest. Nothing, then, it seems to me, stands between the Union and iuternal peace hut the personal ambition of the Southern leaders. But so long as these men can bring armies in to the Held, and the Union remains true to it self, the contest must proceed. The Union, I feel assured, is not carry ing on this war with the object, and in the spirit of mere conquest, uui wim tue view 01 releasing from me lull 11 - ence of these leaders, the mass of the South ern people, and recalling them to the duty of governing themselves according to the laws of tile Union. Slavery being exorcised from the body politic by the sharp process of civil war, North and South will have iu the such gulf staudiug between them as that which slavery made. Again the Southern people will take their due share in the government of the Union, again give to it able and loyal states men, and North aud South will each derive strength anil greatness from tire other. But, on the other baud, the success of the South would be the commencement of its fall —a fall that would he precipitated by the ef fort to maintain an institution which the laws of God and the rights of man alike condemn. At best it would lie a third rate power, with a powerful aud vigilant neighbor aloug its ex tended frontier; with emisarles active, for con science sake, in sapping and mining the pecu liar institution to its fall; with all the internal weakness which that institution induces,sup posing its maintaiuauce possible; and with a weight of taxation to support the fleets aud armies necessary to its independence, compar ed wim which its fiscal burdens while in the Union would be but trifling. The rebel stxtes occupy, in fact, this position; that if they suc ceed in their object they fail most disaterous ly. and il they fail to attain it they achieve the most substantial success. For the sake of the ■South then, 1 wish success to the Union which is now bravely fighting the battle of liberty, order aud law lor our whole race, in all time. Atd when the Union flag again waves over your natiou from the St. Lawrence to the Gulf of Mexico, and from tlse Atlantic to the Pacif ic coast, let the Executive temper justice with mercy, the act of the strong hand by the gen tleness of the forgiving spirit, and while pre senting a stern Iront to the fomenters of an archic rebellion, oiler the band of a sincere Iriendship, and all the right and privileges of free citizenship to those who return to their allegiance to their nation, its executive and laws.
