Nor v*n it be raid that theae latitudinal depar ture* from the (\m*tilutii and the laws. are the result of the revolution now raging j amongst us. They should be rather at-; trlbulcd to the growing and dangerous : influence* of popular political ( and the revolution regarded as the acci- • dental mesas of their development. It , may be true that, without revolution, tbire ; would now be no fetters upon either pen ; or tongue in this country, but who can I deny, who has taken either a philosophic or •omif.on aenao view of the history o j event* for the past few months, that time . and the higher law heresies of Mr ew- j .rd would have eventually made this rove- j la lion; and. at no distant day, present* d - the ulterior fed*®* of Abolitionism *n mll the bideouanet-a of their deformity. Um.j m*..*•"* V"P*-1 lon upon the ground of siuipbe declaration. . There are a great many lawyers among j the Abolitionists of the North, and they j might quite naturally inquire—where’s yvur evidence *: Now. legally or tcehni eally, of courae wc have none, but, a this , is not a matter to be tested in a court of j law, but at the bar of .public opinion, the j antecedents and published political w;nti- . incut* of Mr. Seward, and of hi* satellite* ■ at 'hr North, may not U irrelevant to the point at And now for the antecc- | dents of Mr. Seward. Holding, at this ; time, the highest position in the Cabinet j of the nation, he is known to have long, M ncc placed bis foot upon the American Ooiistituiion. He has publicly and re-, peatedly | ronouneed it—“a league with death and a covenant with Hell. ’ He | baa advocate**!, in the legislative Halls nd upon the rostrum, departure* from the lime-honored and accepted construc tion* of that Constitution. He has. time and again, advocated ibe d> ctrinc ot* uni v*rsal emancipation and counseled open resistance* to tbe law* of the laud. He has declared the Fugitive Slave Law uu- ( constitutional and counseled its infringe- j mei)t throughout the North and tin , >Ve*t. In bis recent pknipotence, be , has openly violated the imwt ancient and j sacred principle* of common and statute j law and wreaked" vcngfancc upon all \ who have dared n>Ut bis aggressions. j Nor can ii be said lhat be In*, thus, far, outstripped either bis satellites or! Northern public opinion. On the con- j Irary. Grcely. Suiuner 6i are not yet i siii*fi~*d. Tlic auspenrio® of the writ of, i/uhms Corpus and the suppression of freedom of speech and of tbe pros, will not suffice to appease the voracity of their appetite*. Convert* to the. higher U school of Sewardisw, they favor no half-way practice of its doctrine*. Hav ing heartily embraced the cause of eman cipation, they cling to their tenet* with fervor and tenacity, regardless of the cir cmustacos which have not uufrequrntly had a tempuriaiag effect upon the policy f their leader. Indeed, Mr. Soward could now avail but little by recauUtiow. He has introduced tbe poisonous plant aft the North, it haa become a staple and Grecly A O'., will continue to cultivate it. The Northern mind has become too strongly impregnated with the poisonous effluvia, I# be healed by even bis skilful pieserip- ! tiant. Bread y*U have been known l; cure the hyppo, but there are alagr* ofj disorder for which all the science of Alb- j pnthy bare been vainly evoked. Special jdending and technical reasoning ure uuj watch for the rugged fervor of fonariekm;! and reformation. In the pnlpit, the school : room and the Hall* of National and State Legislation, must become both sincere and radical ere the efiict* ®f this subtle I eisw can be eradicated. But it is charged that Newardkm ha* hut comparatively few follower* nt the North, and that the great mass of the peo-' pie repudiate hi* heresies. This wo deny.

Can there, then be a doubt, as to i the rul condition of the Northern mind ? jla it nut patent to every one, that the i Constitution has re**cd to command even j kr bare respect of the Northern people? ' Then, who will deny that, oven without revolution, liberty was foul becoming an * mpty name in ibis country ? If Aboli tionism had censed to respect the Con stitution and the Inw* in one instance, j i* it likely it would have hesitated about jthiir infringement iu another? Hobiing I a doctrine above that of the Conetituttun, • and upon that Lasing a right to disre i*p the Fugitive Slave # would not any other law have been likewise disre garded when it came in conflict with their nefarious purposes ? Would they, in a short time, have hesitat* d to have %wppre**ed. either by mob. Stale laws or otherwise, the freedom of speech or the press should it dared to have upheld the (Vnstitn'ional right* of the slave holder *? Have they not Itolijly pioelaitn cd the dogmw, that popular political ma jorities shall rule i:d direct jhc affair* of the Government, despite the express ( provision* of the Constitution to the j contrary? Have they not trampled, time and again, upon the institution:: and rights ; of the State* and threatened them even j with coercive consolidation? But, we will j not further enumerate the abominable her-; esiis of Svwardism. Their curse is al- : ready upou the country, and, like tin-! i Asiatic phigue, is carryir.g desolation \ and woe into every corner of the nation. Then, let not Greedy and the weather- i truck Bennett ’ay our national misfortunes i at the door of the Southern people. I<et i them no longer charge that the bombard ment of Sumter inaugurated the existing ( strife. The origin and cause lie nearer ; home, indeed to a conriikrable extent, [ beneath the vest of Mr. Grcely. The i avowed opponent of reconstruction, upon i any h.-isi* that shall on.-nre the guarantee : of the Constitutional and paramount de- ■ maud* of the South, he confesses hi* pa-| trioikm to be subservient to his fanati- , risni, and demands that rapine and mur- . der shall folh'W the arm* of the North in ' . • their work of subjugation. Woe be unto a country when it shall fall under the control of such desirable and God-forsa- ! ken rulers! Home, andT t’alignla and !

We ha vt no wish to ignore or underrate the Federal victories which have been re i ccntly achieved iu Kentucky, North C’aro- I Una and Tennessee They are treated as ! fixed facts by the Government and nmy ! not. therefore, be gainsayed. If theae. j however, shall have the effect of perpet uating the delusion iu the Northern miud lhat the “backbone” of the rebellion has been broken or tlutt Uie South will lx* ready and willing aft< r a few more au*> defeats, to stack arum and bang out the white flag, we regard them a* greeter ee ls mi tie* to the victor* than vanquished. No reasonable men expect id, when tbe war commenced, that the victories would be all upon oae side. Bth parties, we presume, left a liberal tnargiu fur rever se*. but it u now contended, because the Confederate* have Utn beaten in three or four engagements in which tbe oppos ing forces had, iu some instance*, the ad vantage of position and in alt greatly the advantage of numbers, lhat “the rebellion haa culminated and is now declining !’* Ou ' this principle, the next successful Federal ’ skirmish, we suppose, will wind the rebe!- Ilion up. This i a comfortable theory, doubtless, but unfortunately it docs not impose.upon any body who is familiar with the spirit and resource* of the Foolh i ern people. The rebellion never can be I wound up until tbe South la completely subdued, or, a* Mr. flay told tbe Empe ror of Russia, until she is soljugaled “stock, lock and gun-barrel, hook, line and bob-sinker.” Kven if her armlet should be driven from the field —they have only been driven after uuie month’* [ fighting fivm Kentucky and Missouri ' where public sentiment i* divided on the I question of fe d *ion—the swamp* feto i mountain passe* and the qnerilin warforw ‘will still remain n> her.

Noih -14 j ing, then, is to be hoped from a division 1j in Southern sentiment o u the question of ■ f separation. Mr. Ely told os some month - or more ago, that the South was a unit . for independence and terribly in earnest* r j Every subs* quvtit advice from that qnar* * * tor has tended but to confirm the truth • , fulness of his irport. Very recent ao ' counts ropTi fcnr, that the Etc defeats i have bad the effect of converting the whole f j Southern population into are. t | determined to resist the invader* at every i j step and to the last extremity. Now, if the thing were practicable at all, (0 sub jugate a country like this by any power which the North has brought or hr able to bring against it, would require a patriar ■: chal life-time. Hoes any sensible man j believe that European interference can bo prevented if’ the war is prolonged fur twelve months? Shall the fate of Mexi co teach us nothing? Can it be a matter ;if d iuU • i v hat ha* pawed and i-. , passing across the Atlantic, in whoso ( favor intervention will be made 41 when 'tis made?" What will then be the situa- : lion of the belligerents? The N*rth will jat once be put upon the dt Tensive. Uo#- ton, New York and Philadelphia will he j menaced. Every Northern harbor will |bo blockaded. Northern commerce will ibe jwwept from the sea. The North will !he compelled to weaken her forces in the South and West to protect herself at horns.

They have not, a*; ! yet, succeeded, iiowcver, in arriving , ■ any definite or corresponding conclusion m to the comparative losses of the bellig-; ! erenls, but each day new and materially j different report* have lem received. The | Confederate loss, in kill.-d and wounded, ♦ is estimated at from 600 to 1800, whilst j I the loss iu prisoner* range* from 3.000 to j 13,300. Reports of the Federal loss also ; I differ widely. Officially, wc believe, the • ‘loss, in killed and wounded, is put dowa • !at from 1200 to 1300, but the statement •f an eye witness to the fight show* it to I have readied 1000 in killed and 4000 in , ! wounded. It is admitted on all sides to have been a most desperate fight, and, it , ii also admitted, that the Federal* ochicv- j ;ed a decisive and important victory. The 11 Confederate force iu the fight I* so va -1! riously estimated a* to render it quite impossible to arrive at any conclusion, as i! to the relative strength of the belligerents, 'fbe Federal force, it seems, was full 3U,- j 1900, whilst the Confederates are reported ; “ to have numbered from 7,000 to 30,000. 1 1 It is fair to presume, however, that the 1 • Confederates greatly outnumbered the ■ j smaller figure, and it it also equally prob- j r; able that (he Federal* had greatly the ad- > ; I vantage iu numbers. The escape of Fib 5 - j low and Floyd, together with a considers- j • S ble portion of the Confederate force, is ad- | • j milted, but there is a conflict of rumor* as , * I to the means by which the escape was ef ij fit*ted. Instead of stealing off in the I j night, as originally reported, it i* now ■ • \ currently rumored and generally believed. ‘ . that the escape was effected iu a different t manner. A correspondent f one of the lead r t ing Northern journals, who claims to have i - been an eye witness, states that K)oyd-and : Pillow cut their way through the Federal r lines, and carried with them a considers - ble portion of the Confederate force and I the Federal prisoner* that had been eap- J tured in the early part of the fight. The i same correspondent ska states that the I surrender of the Port was necessitated by > j a scarcity of ammunition and provisions, i * which was made manifest to him by an iu j speetton of the arsenal and the ucwwi*ra -11 riat after die surrender, lie further l state* that Pillow and Flryfi canid f ‘several of the b 1 gun*, some if which 4 were said to hsvc been the property of the i Federal*, pri*r to the Bull Run disaster, f Since the fall of Fort IKmcleon, no eny • gngcnicnt is reported in this quarter.

Beauregard, who ; has been engaged in fortifying lEi •* plmae for the past '.* w*eks, is to be dangeron.dy ill, with typhoid fever, and scriuns apprehension* as to his ultimate recovery are said to exist. A rumor al ’ an prevails in Federal circles, that Gov. llama has withdrawn the Tennessee .troops —numbering 7U,U*M) —from the • Confederate cause, in consequence of j the recent reaction in public sentiment iu

. that State. Indeed, the Federal* claim : that T* nnessce is already sul jugated, and that she will return to the IVmn, of her : own free will, ju4 so soon as she is pvr j milted to do so. It is useless for us to rtate, that we believe this report to be un- 1 founded, as we arc satisfied no sensible ‘ person eau be imposed upon by publica tions of so ridiculous and baseless a char acter. It is not characteristic of Tennes siana to submit, or even acknowledge an 1 error, iu the face of defeat, nor can one vic:ory, oven so potent iu character at (hat at Ronclson, frighten them from a cause they have- so enthusiastically cm- • braced. ! Reports from Missoori show that Prims j has not yet been 4 *bagg-d." oven though he has bet'll chased beyond the limits of the State. The great victory which the > Federal* claimed to have gained over him lu Arkansas, turns, out, according i to Southern nporf, to Have been a dect-, Jed reverse. The fight •* reported to < have taken place ai Sugar Preck, and the Federal* arc said to have Aiceu worsted, j with a loss of 7tHI men. The Confede rate loss is estimated at |OO. and Albert ' Pike telegraphs the result to President | Pa vis, as “a great victory ou the part ol Price." The fight had not closed, it • I seems, at latest reports and nothing is! known as to it* ultimate result. The Burnside expedition is still at work ’ iu North Carolina, its present field of operation being iqmtt the Chowan river. 1 A bri f skirmish bn* taken place at Win- : tun, iu which the Confederates were re- • pulsed with a loss of 2 men. The expe- , |di(i>n landed ami burnt the town and in.* > .mediately re-embarked. The notorious lOr 11. Foster, the bogus representative from N. 0. iu the Federal Congress, was | : killed in the skirmish. 1 It i* reported iu * 4 Uyal" circles, that j Savannah has been captured by the Fede- _ rl*. though late advices from the South report no fight in that quarter. Affairs are quiet at Port Royal and Pickens and | nothing new has transpired along the Southern coast. A close watch is being kept at Fortress Monroe fur the Merrim. c, iu consequence of a late report that flic ! was being rapidly prepared fur an expe li- : j tiou of some sort, notwithstanding the • fact that she has been recently reported as |“a lamentable failure and powerless of! j mischief." Affairs along the line of the Potomac > arc reported quiet, though rumors ef a i forward movement arc again rife. The ' 4 'grand army.” it ia now rumored, will i wove in -three grand divisions of from < , 40,000 to 30,000 men each. Hooker! will cross at Rudd’s Ferry, Banks the j , L’pper Potomac and McClellan move for* j I ward from Washington. The Confede- I | rate forces al Manassas are reported as not 1 materially diminished, and the great bat tic of the’war, it is still thought, wilt be . fought in this vicinity. | Utc intelligence from the South shows 1 j that enlistments fur the war arc still rapid- ■ ily going on. and there are no indications j f depression by the bite reverses. Most. , !if not all. of the twelve months men have • t ro-euli-n*d for the war. snd*m stubborn t J determination to acquire their iudepeu-; ' deuce seem* to every where prevail among . ? the Southern people. Indeed, (be war, | seems lu have just com mended, in good i earnest, and nut until the South shall be , j completely overrun, desolated and her peo- ' , pie annihilated will she give up the con- ! ; test. The next thirty days are pregnant • with mighty event*, hut it is by no means j | certain ha they will prove decisive a* tn . j the result *f the war.
