thought he might apply his extended obscrvation to “ fresh fields
and pastures now," and advance his speculations to something of
a more thoroughly private and personal nature. No doubt, being
a pupil of John Bull for over sixteen years, they were on an exten-
sive plan, and vvetrust that the Englishpcople will insist on seeing
how for such aresidenrc among them has expanded the soul of
the German into “modem civilization." On the eastern question
people are unsalislhed and clamorous, believing that while appa-
rently gsiding Turkey, the government, through the Prince Albert’s
doings and Lord Aberdeen, is Russian. The Spectator of the 7th,
publishes a large statistical supplement, and considers the survey
of revenue, trade, and industry, for the year, “ most satisfactory,"
exhibiting an increase in the revenue returns of 2,0l5,000l., an
in the eleven months of the Board of rade an increase in the
value of exports of 16,5D0,000l. over 1852,
From the theatre of war there comcth no more drhnits sounds of
a settlement, than the summoning of all the Russian men-ofrwar
ships in the Black Sea to Sebsstopol, whither the Turks were
speeding to attack it by land and sea; and the clanging and crunch-
ing of llluslem scimitara and Cossack lances; the groans of four
thousand Russians, and the Mahommed-sent shout of the victorious
urhsat Cilale, near Kalali-it. The Russian accounts admit four

Everything shows us that to a deadly extent Turkey and Russia
are in earnest. Mars is rising into a dxed red light in the Euro-
peun heaven. It is welcome. for anything is welcome to Europe, ‘
and war is the least of evils for her now: it is better than

V In another part of the CXTIZEN will be found a short report of the
meeting held on Monday evening, wherein the Italian refugees,
the men who best know the facts, and are most capable or judging
in the promises, havirecordcd their opinion of this man. e
names of Foresti and Avezzana guarantee (to us) the trustworth-
iness of the statements and the honesty of the judgment. If we
doubted heretofore that Bedin‘ ordered and sailctioned the execu-
tion of the excellent Ugo Bassi, our doubt was founded only on the
absence of any other evidence of the fact, (known to us,) than Ga-
vazzi’s. : I ,
But whether or not Monsignor Bellini ordered this execution
makes little dilference. Ugo Bassi was a. rebel, like ourselves,-
his party was defeated like our own-and defeated rebels must for-
ever hear the ore cictisl So that Bedini jniay plead, he was :only
doing “his duty." ,But it is a poor plea-his dutyl There are
“ duties" which no good man will do : Many detectives and spies
do their duty,-most gaolers-nearly all hanguien, do their duty.
Dumb. ‘. Ll v‘t. L r-
ful duties, and duties uncleanly. Monsignor Bedini’e “duty" at B0-
logna, was to sustain by foreign bayonets and domestic scalping
knives, one of the mean and brutal tyrannies which deform and dc-
vcmr the magnificent Italian nation-to wit: the tyranny of the
Pops of Rome. , '
Yet we rt-joiee that the man has escaped unliurt. Neither do
we believe that the Germans of Cincinnati, or the tyranny-hating
citizens of New York intended him bodily harm,-only bodily ter-
ror, and the sight of his own straw image blazing and dancing to
some unsavuury tune. This was all: and it would have been a
good example, pour cnwltragzr la mtlrcs. to do their dirty duty to
a tyrant. , , s r -
But there is nothing which the laws of any land should more
jealously guard, or which all good citizens should more zealously
help them to guard,-than the personal inviolability of strangerm
solong as they obey those laws. There is nothing more cowardly
and rnllianly in the world than an attack by a mob upon a defencelers
man. The Haynau business is a bad example. The ignorant pop-
ulace of London who would have torn Ilaynau limb from limb be-
cause his subaltorrl dogged a lady, are the same populace who a
few years before laid their months in the dust before Czar Nicho-
las, because he wore an Imperial crown and was supposed to keep
a vast factory [or making diamond mun‘-boxes,-though he vvcs
Whilst “ war" is the vrord in every court circle of the Allied
Powers, every diplomat from Berlin to St. James’ is bethiriking
where are the “ Iinews" to come from. Vvhile a tragedy is being
enacted in Eastern Europe, at Olwnitza, Sirlope or Citale, in which
the chiefcharacters are sustained by a Missionary Cossack, in a
cassock, and a “ turbaned Turk"-the former of whom wishes to
get a confession from the latter. which will not be given-and the
latter of whom is indignant that the limnrr will not quit his prem-
' ' to ises, will not retire and can not advalicc, but stand there parleying
about what he (the Turk) will never be convinced :-while this
tragedy is‘ progressing through its second and its third act, the
amusing farce of “ Raising the wind ” is being played at thelrival
establishments, respectively under the superintendence of Louis
Napoleon, Francis Joseph, and Frederick VVilliam, and other lessacs

people will, and every Jeremy Diddler of them puts the questions,

The sultan is more immovable than ever. lie insists on thor-
ough evacuation, no recognition of broken treaties, no supervision,
for the sake of Mahemmcdan or Greek Churchmen, of any power
within his domain. These things he will have or annihilation.
Though the combined fleets have entered the Black Sea, still the
“allied powers" are virtually no allies of his. They are allied
each for itself, the Greek God for none of them, and only lllabom-
med for the lllollem. But, “twice is be armed who hath his
quarrel just.” It is not a little singular to see Fiance, who put
the Prince Pius IX. on his throne, arm against the Catholic Greek
Shibboleth, and the bigoted and rancoruus Episcopal nature of the
English Government pretend to save the Oslrianli Peter on the
troubled waters ; while Prussia and Austria are equally willing to
crucify the one, take the f‘ last plank " from under the feet of the
other, or do exactly the reverse. ' ' ' .
The sultan must not depend on any of them, or he will find him-
self, like his prophet‘s coil-in, between earth and heaven, probably
not recognized by either, certainly not by the latter. He is deter-
mined to know exactly how he stands. and Ill“ “Wm H9 ha‘

It is not however exactly what I looked for. In reply to two
vehement attacks of yours, one in your Abolition Lecture, and one
in your newspaper, I did myself the honor to address to you certain
arguments. I really thought they went, in some sort, arguments ;
and supposed that if you vouchsafed me a reply you would try to
answer or invalidate them. The course you have taken makes me
admire your prtidence, even more than your eloquence.
It was required of his to show how my declaration that slave
holding is not I crime consists with my attempt to abolish English
dominion in Ireland. For answer I pointed to some of the greatest
leaders of this Republic, who being slavallolders rose to abolish Eng. '

this‘! Can your reverence contemplate “ ithout honor an American ‘
coluuist exacting the whole labor of his own illave; yet declining
