Whatever doubt there might have been of the expediency of our sharing in the anti-feroliiti'onary war, there was none as to the policy Of resisting the Overwhelming domination of the Great Napoleon, who—mighty genius as he was—had the con• queriog instincts too strongly developed to be either a good friend or a honest ally for England. We fought him, and we beat him. It is no false patriotism, no delusion of our. insular conceit, that affirms that, but for England, be would have re-erected in Europe a sham Roman Empire, with alj its despotism, and with' a'gbod deal of ite cruelty. It is, of course, contenipnt to our Continental friends to forget England'* share in the mighty work, and because their armie*, outnumbering Napoleon's dared to enter France and crushed a hero beneath the weight of number*, they take all the credit to themselves of a work they would never have had , the spirit to commence, or courage to continue, had hot Eng. land showed them tbd road to victory.

Ta« eilyer -interest in the United States hsi proved sufficiently strong as to induce the legislature to adept a measure which is, h effect, one of partial repudiation. Apparently, present debtor* will gain by this manoeuvre, as the silver dollar* in which they can settle their liabilities sre only worth nine-tenths, of their nominal value. The State, toO, will pay the debt in silver it was be lieved to have solemnly pledged its credit to-pay in gold. This saving will probably (although inconvenient to their creditors) be extremely advantageous to the people of the United Ststee, as -"I effectually prevent their getting into debt —for nobody will trust them.' Of course, if under the stress of circumstances they art compelled at any time to borrow money, they will have to pay very dear indeed for it. But that result they have probably taken into consideration. The effect on the Gnances of the United States of this partial repudiation of their debts, bv arranging to pay in silver instead of gold, is therefore likely to be very serious indeed. The proprietors of the silver mines of Nevada have the discredit of having" fostered this dsngeroug piece of legislation, hut its causes are to be sought in other directions than any manoeuvres of anv traders, astute and unscrupulous as they may be. It really comes from the fact that the debtors command a majority even now in the legislature of the United State*. Thanks, too, to the union of western Republicans with their old antagonists, the southern Dsmocrats, theyj— the debtors will soon be in 'overwhelming force in Congress. The lenders in the, Statea-rthe, capitalists, to put it another way—are compare, tiiely few, and almost - limited to the New. England States, and some of the great cities. The debtor class are everywhere, and are debtors io Debtor* ae etalca, Keblor* am muni-cipalities, debtors as individual*, "all their capital is borrowed from the East,, or Europe, and ill their wants are supplied from the same direction. Save meat and corn (and whiskey) they import everything, and find It eminently unpleasant to have to pay their bills. The dullness of trade has intensified the pressure upon the West almost beyond, endurance, and hence the shortsighted fashion in which they have -sought
Turn resdiness with which both friends and enemies have accepted a* a fact the rumours of a strange and sudden alliance between Russia and Turkey, furnishes A most comicsl comment upon the high motives and exalted principles it has pleased the English Radicals to endow their Muscovite allies with. Turkey, however, is no longer " the unspeakable," indeed if she will be duly be sufficiently impertinent. to this country, apd sufficiently serviceable to Russia, weahall expect to hear that her vices have become virtues in Radical eyes. Anything more discreditable then the part the Radicals have played in the last three years can.hardly be found in history. It was obvious, from the Very beginning of the ■"-called insurrection of the Herxgovina, that fkev waa the victim of a conspiracy on the ft of her unscrupulous neighbour*, and every fresh development has confirmed that opinion. She was attacked, aot because, she waa wicked, but because she was weak. Had her rerritoriea been less desirable as acquisitions to Russi*, we should have heard little. about Turkish immorality or Turkish mlarnle. Indeed for Russia to complain of Ottoman maladministration is about the most amuaingly impudent phsse of the whole affair. Viewing the matter (airly, Turkey certainly allowed more liberty within her bordere than Russia does within here; and other people, beiidet the Bulgarians, are likely to find that they^bave exchanged Sultan Log for Autocrat
