titled racing lo lU ODBie when rnrage, the en thev Weed of laughed at for heir shou/d rs, j >ur busna s to i talk thus and so. The day which we pro phesied hat come; yea, verily, we can aak where are your b raes? where are your chargers? where ie the cavalry to come from to prosecute the war you have \ undertaken ? It is thoroughly understood 1 by ail who have any knowledge on the> subject that men high in authority in the j State inaiat that w* cannot mount a regi • ; neut of cavalry properly. When this j was first bruited abroad people looked at • each other in ut’er amazement; bit such j is the case—we hare no homes. What a laughable right it weald be,l were it not so serious a matter, lo see a 1 thousand men mounted ou a heterogeneous i lot of horses, eroding over a plowed field ' with a ditch at one end, the Conuestogas stumbling in their efforts to raise their feet over the ridges, falling when forced to a gallop, the trotters trying to keep up 1 at their unnatural gait, and the backs that i could gallop a little, after reaching the ditch, tumbling into it or trying to wade ' through instead of clearing it with a rin- S’e bound, and worse tban all would be . c action of these brutes when within : sound of the can ion’s roar, shying, turn-1 ing, twisting and running away at every j explosion; and as for attempting a charge , at cold fttcel, the sight of the bayonets glis-1 toning in the un would make their hearts j burst with very terror. A first hueccss ia often more ruinous to | a man than a series of |etty defeats, for ; the one gives him an overweening confi dence which may lead to his ntter des truction; the other teaches fortitude and the means by which misfortune ie to he overcome; the parallel is true of a nation, j When the M ■ xican war was first com- ( raeuced we told the people that our cavsi- | ry was in a Date of utter inefficiency, but j coming in contact with an effete race of j men, and, if pusrible a more abused race j of horses than the people of the country; J a country in which the owners of large | stocks of horses preserve as stallions only those animals which are deformed by na ture, and would not bring a remunerative price in the slock market; —to such horses and to such a race of people we were op posed, it is thererf >re not to be wondered at that our own deficiency was not exposed, so easy was our conquest. So determi-j natcly were all our friends of opinion that a war could nut be brought about except I with a inferior race, that a cold shoulder has been turned to all our efforts, and the tests of a horse’s value have lost interest to all but a very few. The great advantage of cavalry is, after the enemy’s ranks have been broken by t the fire of the artillery or a charge of buy- : onets by infantry, fur them to get among j the men and prevent the reforming of the | ranks, completing the temporary disorder j and causing it to result in a total rout.—• To accomplish this result, borsrn and ri- ' dera must be thoroughly trained, capable I of performing every evolution with precis- I ion and rapidity ; the horsea .must possess I endurance, courage, and speed ; the latter i quality is as necessary as the two forme-, • otherwise the important moment may have | passed, ere the cavaliers reach the enemy’s | lines, aad they in turn be met with a j warm reception ; for if charging a line of regulars prepared to greet them their des-, traction is almost, inevitable, yet when ; brought to bear oiji militia the opposite re sult is in nearly every instance to be anti cipated. volunteers gcoeraly breaking be fore a Ixriy of cavalry as they do when charged by the bayonet; under such cir cumstances aw 11-organised body of borae are ami st valuable auxiliary on tho field f batth? when you arc opposed to raw re cruits ; veterans cave nothing for a cavalry charge except when already broken, and then when th* hob? jieoel rate their lines and get InMwten man and mao, and com mence the Liunness of trampling them down while the riders use their sabres with terrific effect,, then are the foot soldiers folly aware that their glory and honor is departed for (hat day , and their only hope f safety is ia flight, which isat best hat poor recourse. JV weight of the Ur ism, the wen, pud tlp-if. accoutre irn*n|a, is a. matter for v#nr serious consideration. Horses could not be 100 large or heavy, provided they could have the poper* ■peed.sud endurance. both of. qrhishj qualities lh majority of large horsea mm.

We . had not time to express nor surprise be j fore its occupants began to sing. In another moment we were in a gondo la and followed the bright, mysterious ob jjent Leforc us. The beautiful chorus ceased, and all was silent again. Off oar 1 nearer approach, we saw. gliding on each i aide of the singers, a royal gondola orna mented with blue velvet drapery surmount ed by a gilded crown. E:icb, boat was rowed by four gondoliers. In one sat tbe ! two Archduker* of Austria, in another the 1 two Du (chesses. Two or three gondolas with attendants were behind. A few fol ; lowed like ourselves, from curiosity. No • light appeared from any window, no face t looked from the fair marble balconies, no ■ voice cried God bless them, us tbe small procession slowly glided onwards. How I different was tbis to tbe hearty welcome .given to British princess when visiting the ! great towns of our free country. Tbe | royal party now *fop under tbe nrob of the j Rialto, aud hear another tong. A few persons gather on the quay to listen, and j give a faint applause. Sometimes but j one solitary individual claps Lis hands. The sound cohoes dismally through the &ilent streets. A closely covered gondola occasionally darta from some bidden water lane, skims swiftly past us, and is lost j again in tbe dark night.' The bright lamps and beautiful singing do not Usuipi the proud Venetian to look from bis gloo jmy canopy. The songs are spirited, part ;ly dramatic. In one perfo. malice two men j tie handkerchiefs over their hea is, aud j imitate tbe conversation of very loqiiaciou.i j old women. After remaining some min utes under the Rialto, the gondoliers be gin to ply thi-ir oars, and quietly tbe whole company float up the canal, under the tfhadow now of one palace, now of anoth er. Very gently we all glide along. Tbe chorus, breaking forth at intervals into | fresh harmonies, dies suddenly away, and | then we hear nothing but tbe tiny ripple which the Water always sings to the boat. i • •••■• Prospxctiv* Bankruptcy or thk Nortu. —We are fairly entitled to say that in no one point baa the model Gov ernment of our “advanced" politician* been found to support the pretensions ! which were ascribed to it. Tbe A uteri j cans rushed into war as recklessly as any | nation could have done. The Peace 1 Party among them never obtained any | thing like such a hearing as was aeoorded! jto our peacemakers at home. Ever offer i of arbitration was rejected with tbe fiercest j j contempt. They are conducting their j war with such incredible prodigality that ; observers used to the extravagance of j camp* and campaigning are astounded st * • the spectacle, aud, to complete the pie-1 | ture, they are providing for this enormous ; outlay in the most improvident and costly ! fashion. Being unwilling to tax iliem- S selves, they resort to borrowing and. are raising loans at a rate which will soon make their National Debt one of the heaviest in the world. We can only hope, indeed, that a pdicu | su recklessly adopted mag room bring I rith ■ it as an unavoidable consequence the termi 'nation of the strife. If financial embar rassment should furnish the surest ruad to peace, the sooner they are experienced the better. We can assure the Americans tbsi war is not likely to become tfa cheap er, nor borrowing easier, as months pass up The course of such things fa very different. Bach campaign opens new fields, absorbs new armies and creates new charges. Tfa great fall of debt, when once set roiling, will gather and grow till its demenrioos outstrip all specula tion.
