Kossuth made a speech at Sheffield, Engtarvi,

sin 01 the nationality of Poland. Alluding to the
universal opinion enter ained in England that Rus
r is had grown dangerous to the freedom of Europe,
and that she main bo checked in her encroach
ment. u?on die independence of nations, he threw
out a warning that diplomatists and phi
clans were calltid upon to define what they meant
by the "freedom of F.ntope," and state in what
manner they intended to cheek the power of Ens.

either there was no sincerity, in that profession, or
no political meaning in the design, that Turkey is
to be maintained as necessary to the peace,ot
Europe, and Russia to be without Poland
being at the same time reconstructed an indepen—

tree. Thetis aims, he wild, would be entirely sub
verted by England taking Austria Tar her ally, and
). that a fatting peace could not be secured without
Poland, Hungary and ltaly being restored to their
national tights.
The London Tunes maids this declaration of
Kossuth as sufficient evidence of the identity of the
interests oldie revolutionary party in Europe with
those of Russia. These very wrongs of which M.

Geer.Lasteir 1 have been honored by the re
ceipt of your communication of the 18th
propounding to me certain questions touching the
subject of a prohibitory Liquor Law.
o your first inquiry, f reply that the Sapreme
Court of the Sate have repeatedly held, end I con
cur in the doctrine, that the Legislature can exer
cise all lavv-making, power not expressly lot bidden
by the State or Federal Constitution. finder this
construction, I believe the Legislature have kuthor
ity to control the manufacture and sale of epiritous
liquors ; but in the use of that power, it must be ob
vious that aJaw might be pasted, which, in its de
tails, would be a manifest violation ot the Constitu
tion, end hence the impossibility of answering your
question distinctly, without seeing the exact terms
of the proposed law. ,
As to the second point in the infinity, it Must be
very clear that a law s constitutional in itself ; would
not be rendered otherwise by allowing ,the people
to eeeitte by fee whether the It should
repeal it or not, no matter what the vote might be.
To your second inquirt ,I answer that I sincetely
deplore the evils of intemperance, and am now
willing, as I have always, been to sanction any
proper measure to mitigate, and ii possible, entire
ly remove the vice, but I cannel pledge myself to
sanction a law, the- details of which I have not
seen. The termini the Constitution and oath of
effice would seem to forbid this course on this part
of an Executive. He should be free to lodge of
constitutionality and wisdom of a proposed Jaw

Courts of several ol our Staler and the princi.

tug affirmed the •.constituilottality of a prohibitory
law, and being of lbabighest authority, I believe
upon principle and authority. such a law to be con.
sultnional ; and its constitutionality, in my opinion,
would nor be affected by a submission of its tepeel
to a vote of the people.
Every measure of moral or pstitical reform,sant
tioned by the representatives of people, with
in the limits of the Constitution, should receive my
official sanction. The expediency and propriety of
such laws are for the people, through their repro&

The steamer At/antic, of the Collins line, from

They are not nf a decisive character touching the

to the military movements before Siligtia and con-
Orderable importance is given by the Paris and:Lon

Thus far the Turks bare decidedly disadvantage
in the siege of Saimaa. Every demonstration by
the Russians had been repulsed, and with a heavy
loss of life, including a number of distinguished of
cars. One account places the killed at 10,000
men ; but an allowance must be made, of course,
for the vagueness, as well as the interested charac
ter of the channels of the report. There is little
question that the Russian commander has had
enough of the siege, until he can be reinforced
He bad retired and established his head-quarters at
Jassy. It is said that the Principalities are swarm•

It is possible the Russian commander may give the
allies battle before they effect dila union, though
we see it stated that it will be their policy not to go
out of the way to provoke an attack. The slow
movement of the English army is much complain

culation on Saturday, that Senator Douglas wades
pected-here that evening. A eonsidetable feehng
was excited, and a very general disposition mani
fested not to welcome him very cordially. We re.
giet to have seen the popular wave running so
high, bordering as it woulJ, had Senator Douglas
made his appearanee, alrfrotn on personal insult.
While, hotel:mei, this stale of things is to be de
plored, Senator Douglas himself is answerable fur
producing it. Over-riding and stronger than all
party ties, the popular aentimen: is not expresseJ
by dissali.luction—it is deep-rooted displeasure,
shared in as well by his taco& as political oppo

to sorrow. It may be proper to state in this con

to visit Illinois until September, when he will find
that we have not misstated the beating of popular

the country to free labor. A caucus Wes held by
the Senators on the subject, at which it was agreed
