There is au old Latin maxim which men sometimes lose sight of, especially when the opinions of others are the subject of conversa tion. The maxim is this, tempora mulantur. et no» mutamur inilll*. In plain English, “The times are changed and we are chauged with them.” That there is much sound phi losophy embodied in this saying there can be no question, and yet, when meji iu high official positions change their opinions or modify them in accordance with the change of circumstan ces, however honest and necessary those changes and modifications may be, the philos ophy of this maxim is forgotten, and those whose opinions must and ought to yield to the pressure of circumstances, are censured and represented as inconsistent. The man who never changes his opinions iu this changing and progressive world, and es pecially In this remarkable age, must be hope lessly opinionated and very wise in his own conceit. He who changes or modifies his opin ions can generally say with truth, “I am wiser to-day than I was yesterday.” And this too iu the humbler walks of life. But what shall we say of him who occupies a high and com manding position and upou whose opinions the life of a nation may, iu a certain degree, de pend ? Shall a man thus situated never chauge, but always remain wilful aud stubborn,how ever much circumstauces and conditions change, lest his enemies call him inconstant, weak and vacillating? He must indeed be a weak statesman and embecile ruler who does not watch the signs of the times and shape his course accordingly. The attack on the President of the United States for changing his opinion, made by cop perhead journals all over the country has led us to make the above genera) remarks. It is well known to all who have studied the histo tj or eveuts during the past three years that the President has been driven by force ol cir cumstances over which he had no control, to modify, change and suit his opinions and ac tions to the exigencies of the times. Being honest himself aud looking to the great inter ests of the country which a loyal people had placed under his care aud custody, be did not believe there could be so much wickeduess, desperation and power in the traitor leaders of the South as they have siuce manifested. Thus believing, he did every thing iu his pow er to placate the South, to show the people that all he desired was that the ret>els might lay down their arms and the Union be restor ed, Matu quo ante bellum. It was “on that line” he wished to prosecute the war, and he repeatedly told them so, but bow did the reb el leaders receive it? Did they listen to his expressed designs aud wishes aud drop their uplifted arms against the Government? Not at all, but on the contrary, they nerved them more strongly for the battle, and said in lan guage that could not be misunderstood, “We wish to be let alone—we desire no more union with those who advocate free labor—we want aseparate and distinct confederacy whose corn er stone is slavery—wc want an aristocratic government which ignores and repudiates the free labor system, and we mean to have It however much blood or treasure It may cost. If we can have such a government peacably it it is well, if not, wc will seek it at the point of the bayonet aud at the mouth of the cannon. Such was the language of the traitors in the beginning of the war, and such it has been ever since down to the present moment. But the President was slow to believe that sucli was their determination, such their des peration. He could not believe men could be so demented, so lost to all patriotic feelings and emotions, so bliud to the beauty and glo ry of the “Star Spangled Banner’’ that had won the respect aud admiration of all civiliz ed nations, as to attempt to carry such threats into execution. If the President erred at all, Uis error was on the side ot charity, virtue and humanity, and he continued to hold out to the rebels offers of peace upon the simple condi tion of laying down their arms and obeying the Constitution and laws of the country. But no! they would not hear him, or if they did, they would not accept such offers of peace. They continued to swear louder aud louder everyday that the Uniou should be broken up.aud a separate aud independent government established for themselves whose corner stone must be human bondage. For such purposes did they wage this war upon the Federal Gov ernment, aud for such purposes do they con tinue to carry it on. These are solemn, stub born facts aud will be so recorded on the page of history. They caunot be winked out of the sight of an intelligent and loyal people, and in spite ol ‘.he hissings of all the copperheads in the couutry, the people will hear the truth aud abide by it. The President has said, if the Union could be saved by saving slavery, theu he would save slavery; if it could be saved by de stroying slavery, theu slavery should be de stsoyed; aud he meant precisely what he said. We all know that he has always been anxious to save the Union aud bring back the Slates into it, with all their isws aud institu tions. This doclriue he preached in public speeches and documents and iu private let ters, until he had no audience in the South, or if there were any there who desired to hear him, they dared not show themselves, so oppressed were they by tile military despot ism of Jeff Davis and his minions. Now let the stubborn fact be proclaimed to these croakers about “abolition war,” and to all Copperheads who have set up the cry of peace in the land, that the President of the United States has “changed his opinion,” and been compelled by force of circumstances reluctantly to change it. lie once believed he could save both {slavery aud the Union, 1 but he is now forced to believe tiiat the Un ion can only be saved ou the condition that slavery must be destroyed. Aud what rea sonable, intelligent man will censure the President for such a change of opinion? ' Have not the slaveholders themselves demon strated to us that we cauuot live in peace while slavery continues? They have often told us so, aud surely we have no teason to , disbelieve them. The fact stands out in bold relief. • And the question here conies up, “Is not the Union worth iulinitely more than slav ery?” This is the question which the loyal I people are called upon to meet, and meet it ) they must, face to face. There.is no dodging here aud now. Tbe issue is made up and the slaveholders themselves have made it. The past thirty years have taught us that we cau 1 not have peace aud uuion while slavery ex ists, and if wa have not learned the lesson, the fault is our own, and not the events that have transpired. Slavery is repugnant to re publican institutions, and in the very nature of things, it must always be so. We are willing to go before the people on such an issue, if the Democratic party dare , present it. Let them show us tbe tact that the leaders ol the rebels are anxious for peace, but the Information must come from a higher source than a bogus meeting at Niag ara Falls. Let them show usTbat Jeff Davis, his cabinet aml.the editors of the rebel jour nals have swallowed their own words, and now ask for peace, and we will stop to con sider such information and ponder upon it well. The truth is, and it cannot be disguis ed. these rebel leaders have put themselves on record, limes without number, aud this record plainly shows that they commenced the war upon the Government in the interests of slavery, aud for the express purpose of galuing and establishing a confederacy sepa , rate aud distinct from tbe Union. Such was their doctrine in the beginning of tbe war, aud such it is today, and the inge nuity and adroitness of tbe Copperheads in this country, from Vallaudigham down to the Editor of the Argus, cauuot blot'out tbat record. It stands an open book to be read of all men who feet any disbosition to turn over its leaves aud uote the coutents. Then why this false cry of peace, when the rebels say, with an emphasis that cannot be mistak , en,“we will have no peace that stops short of destioying the Union, and establishing an iu . dependant Confederacy, whose chief cornel stone is negro slavery!" Now, croakers and copperheads, show your hands, and no longer attempt to deceive the people, if you are In favor of such a confederacy, say so in so ma ny words; if not, buckle on your armor, rally under the folds of the old ffag, aud help crush out this enrsed rebellion. New Ground of Hope. There have always been local and individu al tests of grace and salvation, superadded to that of Bible or Church organization,—little private airangements for peopling heaven with our special friends, and leaving out ev erybody else. Thus, In Northampton, a gen eration ago, salvation was only earned by membership in the first church, a little slock iu the old bank, and a liberal slice—say half a-dozen acres—of “meadow land.” But of all the restrictions of our day, we have seen nothing tbat puts a fluer point upou it, so to speak, than Rev. Geo. Edis, of Charlestown, did in a speech over the dead body of the venerable Josiah Quincy: “ Dying iu Quincy, receiving funeral hooois in Boston, borue to his grave through Cam | bridge, and resting now ou the slope of Har vard Hill, in Mount Auburn, we may share Ids own strong hope of immortality, and be UP uic is »UUI1UIU Ujr BUIUClUllI^ UCl* ; ter than a sleep.” This is extraordinarily exclusive, indeed.— | The heavenly choir will have to be a quar tette, if thus made up,—for it is easier to be ■ struck by lightning than for these four condi tions to accompany a man's life and death and burial.

A Political Popinjay Posted. Edward Bliss, Commissioner of emigration for Colorado, in New York, publishes a card to relieve that territory of all connection witli “Colorado Jewett.” He says he was a laugh ing-stock fur the two or three mouths he spent in tlie territory, aud that the fear of tar and feathers on account of some questionable busi ness matters prevents his returning. He free ly denounces Jewett as a confidence man and swindler, an arrant humbug and gross impos tor. This will rather elevate Jewett in popu lar estimation, for lie lias been considered a mere fool.

The following accouut of the gallant action . of Hancock’s Corps at Deep Bottom is given 1 by the correspondent of the New York Her ald, who dates on the 27ih July ultimo: i “A portion ofthe troops iu the Army of the Potomac, uuder the immediate commaud oi Major General Hancock having quickly crossed irom the south to the northern bank of the James river, drove the euemy Irom a strong line of iotreuchineuts this morning anu captured four pieces of artillery. The forces forming the expedition moved yesterday afternoon. Marching all night the commaud crossed the Appomattox ou the pontoon bridges at Point ol Kocks and the place called Broadway, aud crossed the James on the bridges uear Deep Bottom. Tire movement was executed secretly aud sileutly; aud iu fourteen hours from the time- of start ing the commaud had marched about twenty miles, crossed two rivers and captured a line of works, with its artillery, Irom the enemy. Having ejected a lodgement on the norm hank of the James, where, however, a force uuder Geueral Poster had becu already station ed, General Hancock's commaud lorined in the open llelds, near the border of the river. The euemy occupied a fortiiied position along a road ruuuiug mostly ou the edge ol an ex tensive piece ol timber, and at that point near ly parallel with the river. After our troops had formed on the open ] plaiu, a slroug skirmish line was thrown tor ! ward, aud it soon came iu contact with the I enemy. The consrqueuco was that, with our skir j miohers from other brigades advauciug at ! other points, the enemy was compelled to abandon that fortified position, leaving four 20-pounder Purrott guns, with limbers, two caissons hilled with ammunition, aud a small number of prisoners iu the hands of Col. Lynch. Alter the euemy had been driven from that first position he retired to a commanding i crest about a mile behind. That point is about three miles irom Malvern Hill. Be couuoitetiug parties soon ascertained the iact that tlie naturally formidable defensive posi tion of the crest was being reudcred strong er still by the euemy, whose reserves were busy completing iuirenclunents which had Jueeu previously commenced, prom in ti trnmt.inn 1 lien in nnr liossession it was bcliev cd that the force of the enemy iu our itnuiedi i ate front consi-ted ol Kershaw's division and an additional brigade of inlautry, with a con siderable force of cavalry, which appeared on our right. Reinforcements, too, were ra pidly arriving by railroad, twenty-nine car loads full hav ing passed up from Petersburg during this afternoon. < >ur skirmishers were cautiously sent forward until they came in contact with those ol the enemy in the fields which spread out from the foot of that com manding crest. A portion of General Harlow’s infantry division pushed forward for tue purpose of de veloping the left ol the euemy’s line, ami had a handsome and successful little skirmish. With the same object in view a portion of ! our cavalry, which is under command of Gen eral Sheridan, advguced ou the Malvern Hill aud New Market road, aud ou the right of ! the iufantry, dashed in w ith the sabre, pushed in the lett ol the euemy,s line and captured a small number of prisoners. About three weeks ago, when Gen. Han cock resumed command of his corps, after a temporary absence, during which time it lost four guns and with them a portion of the prestige inseparably associated With its name, he issued an order to his troops, iu which he told them that when they met the enemy again he would expect them to fully redeem i what they hail lost. It is au lull-resting co I incidence that this morning, the first occasion I on which they had met the enemy since, they | captured tour guus of heavier calibre than I those which they lied lost.ttnil more tliau re established their honorable name.

The Kmperor Maximilian has not met that warm aud enthusiastic reception from the Mexican poopie that he expected, or that his master, Louis Napoleon, promised him. If he has received cordial greetings trom any source, or it auy {flowers have been showered upon him or his wife, they have generally come from French men and women. The Independence llelr/e says that Max imilian and ills beautiful wife were teceivtd with the utmost cooluess aud indifference, aud that the young Empress was so much dis appointed that she burst into tears. We are sorry to hear of such tears, hut must believe the account, for this paper would not4»e likely tosay anything ill-natured of her majesty, as she is tiic daughter of the King of the Belgi ans. The truth is, this couple have a hard row to hoe in Mexico, and the young and ambitious Emperor will yet have a long account to set tle with Louis Napoleon, who has sent him to this country to rule over a people entire stran gers to him. Maximilian has made some flowery speeches and many fair promises to the people. He has thus far acted well the role assigned him by the French manager ol this great political farce, but after all, the Mexicans seem to be slow in appreciating the performance. The Emperor has taken up his residence in Chepultapec, distant some five milis from the capital. This spot was somewhat celebrated in our war with the Mexicans, aud the name was once quite familiar to American ears, lu uiuer iv insiru iuc uuwu mure uruiiy upon liis brow, tlie Emperor lias sent invitations to President Juarez and tlie other leading Lib eral Chiefs, to come to tbe city of Mexico, and there consult together ou a plan for the resto ration of the peace of the country aud tbe firm establishment of the empire, guarantee ing them full protection aud salety. It is said that they all have refused to hold any communication, except by arms, with “ t/.e aycnt of Napoleon.” The rumor that Gen. Uraga, who commands the Liberal army of the centre, had given in his adhesion to the Emperor, iiad not been confirmed up to tbe latest date. There is probably no truth in it. Several ministers, representing the new em pire, have been appointed by the Emperor and seut to their destinations, but no minister has yet been sent to this country. The Eevenue Gutter Mahoning. The New York Tribune says, “The name of Lieut. David Kitchie* of the revenue service, will be identified with the history of the war. When the rebellion broke out, be was in New Orleans, attached to the revenue-cutter Mc Cleiian. Tbe traitors there desired and ex pected to seize aud convert her to their own purposes. Lieut. Kitchie was aware of their designs, aud determined to fiustrate them.— The vessel lay at the levee. Gen. Dix was then acting as Secretary of the Treasury.— iloweli Cobb bad abaiidoued bis post, and fled to Secessia. Gen. Dix bad telegraphed to tbe commandant of New Orleans an order to shoot dowu the first man who attempted to lower tije Stars and Stripes upou any build ing or vessel under control »f the Department of the Treasury. That order has become en grafted upon the history of tbe rebellion, aud photograph Copies ol the original are now among Jht' mementoes ol the times. When New Orleans was aiumst wholly in the pos session ol' traitors, and by overwhelming force the cutter was seized, Lieut. Kitchie secured H»c pojors, wrapped them around his body, and, leapiug Into'If' Mississippi, swam with them to the shore. The traitors.set the cutter on fire.aud seut her adrift. She was entirely destroyed, but the coiora were never taken. Lieut Kitchie evaded the lebeL, and succeeded jn reaching Washington. The tidings of his exploits had preceded him. The Secretary of the Treas ury appointed him to a tleutenantcy ol the new steam revenue putter Mahoning, built iu Philadelphia, at tbe yard of Mr. John W. Lynn. Capt. Webster was placed in com mand. There Was a good deal of rivalry among tbe revenue ortlaert to secure this vessel, lor of the six ordered by the Treasury Depart ment but oue was built iu this port; and among the naval authorities it is well known that Philadelphia shipwrights take tbe lead of aliothers in the Union. The Mahoning is now in Portland, Maine. She was ordered there, as the choicest vessel ol the fleet, by Secretary Fessenden. She is the flag-ship of tlie squadron. An Institute of Instruction.

It is to be earnestly hoped that Thursday next, the day appointed by the President to be kept as a day throughout the Union, asoue of humiliation, lasting, and pray er, will be ob served as such, in reality, as well a9 in out ward form. If there ever was occasion by any nation having the Bible in tbeir hands lor such an Observance, surely the present crisis of our war with the rebellion, demands it—and we hope that our community will not be satislled w ith a public service or services in our res pective places ol woi ship, but tiiat every re flecting individual, whether a member of a church or otherwise, will consider there are private personal duties also to be performed if we mean cither to comply with the require ments enjoined,or so to conciliate the Almighty Kuler cf our nation who is now dealing w ith us for our sins, tfiat He can, consistently with his attributes us a righteous God, giant us speedy success in subduing the rebellion. In Uie results, if it prove tlist such obser vance is not extensive enough throughout the land to procure the blessing, the conscience of each iudividiial so complying with the spir it of the proclamation, will be discharged from bis share of the responsibility, A Daiuxs Adventure.—Last week two young men, Mr. Bobert Welch and a guards man named Jones connected with the lookout here, started from Prescott in a common skid lor Montreal, their intention being to descend all the rapids in their frail boat.
