A Good Scorin Given toe Defender of
The Wihnington . Conunercial thus pitches
into, Cuts up and generally macerates an edi
tor who ventures to assail it:
Delaerarean;'owiwil and-run by the Saulsbury ring
at Pover, says:
It may not be amiss to remind the editors of the
Commercial', who violate common decency by traducing
the State whose laws protect their lives and property.
that •it may next be proposed' to enact a law punishing
with thirty lashes and a convict's jacket every ingrate
editor that comes into the state to encourage a disregard
of law by opposing the execution of punishments meted
out to criminals.-
To which we have to reply: •
1. That the men who most "violate commoti ; :decency,'
in this State. are those :—Who enact and Maintain the
laws for public dogging and pillorying; Who make
drunken and beastly exhibition of themselves in the
public streets Wilmington, and In thernittsl States
Senate; Who maintain. with a shameless despotism, al
their family in public office, and pervert law. decency
and justice to keep theme:lves there ; Who load the msvplo
with outrageous tax.ation; Who match their ignorance
with their meapability to learn; Who corrupt and coerco
the law-making-body of the State; Who bully and insult
their political allies; and make their party merely a
vehicle for their own personal advantage.
2. If the men who most injured this State; destroyed its
reputation; stained its name; lowered its credit; injured
the value of its property; insulted its lasd citizens; spat
upon its National ties; kicked its Union soldiwrs; Marthal.
its progress; and in general "traduced" tile name of

the hover ring, or one of their brothers, brothertoin-law,
uncles.sons,uephews, grandsons, cousins. or coutiec t
that wouldn't be tied up by the Sheriff on every Saturday'
in the year; . and if they had a lash for every dollar they
have squeezed from the people's scanty earnings, their
backs would be as raw as their sense of propriety.
Conduct of Spain During our Civil War
—ltuportnnt Revelations.
The N. Y. Times oars
A etatement made not long 8110 . 1 by Mr. 11. .1: Perry.
Our Scretary of Legation in Splint, to the effect that the
fi,rt eroment of Spain had resol‘eil, at one period of our
civil war, to commence war against the 'United State:,
tine csoited a gooddeal of attention mid curiosity.
. FreMinformation that hae since relleileti 11S, we are in
clined to believe the statement well founded. The de
termination of.iipain wag brought about by the Intrhimes
of the Emperor of the French, and was based on a com
plaint that our Government had been guilty of a viola
tion of neutral rights. The 9th of. October, 1553, was
fixed upon as the day for commencing hostilities, orders
to that effect having already been sent out by the Span-
WI Government. That through the active efforts of libe
ral Spaniards, devoted friends of our cause as identical
with their own, counter orders were sent out by the
steamer from Cadiz of September 15,1663, and the whole
affair was suppressed.
In the present condition of Spaniel' Wince it would be
highly imprudent to disclose the names of the persons
who rendered us this service. They are all now, since
the revolution, prominent public men, and their poid
t bine and influence would be seriously compromised by
a premature disclosure of their agency in this transae
,tion. But the time will probably come before long when
their names I'oll be made known and we can

PARIS, Tuesday, May 18, 1869.---There„is
sudden lull this morning through the whole
city, and everything seems to have fallen at
once flat and dead, after the unusnal bustle
and . excitement of the past week. The reason
is that according to the terms of the new law
all electoral meetings must cease five days
before the opening of the poll, in order to
give the electors time to "reflect," or "se
receuillir," as it is called Perhaps the less
they "reflect" the better upon a good
deal they, have heard during the last eight
dayS "from socialists, communists and ultra
democrats of a " reddish " type. But the above
disposition of the law is of that childish char
acter which is so essentially French. The go
vernment here is alwayS turning itself into a
Schoolmaster, and treating the people as its
pupils; and by so; loing only exposes itself to
ridicule. Thus one .Opposition journal this
morning asks why the law did not
impose " fasting and prayer" as well
as " reflection " during. the next five
days. Another proposes that the candi
dates should not be allowed to ?how them
selves in . the streets during this solemn in
terval, for fear of disturbing the "reflections"
of their : constituents. And one would really
think that the Minister of the Interior was of
the latter opinion, for'he has just addressed a
circular, so solemn that it reads like a sermon,
to all the Prefects, recommending that for the
present they should prohibit public
meetings .of every kind, even those
on agriculture, literature, science
or art, lest the speaker should he tempted by
the excitement of the moment to "talk poli
tics," and so interrupt the train of profound
political "reflection" supposed to be going on
in the mind of an elector as to whether he
should vote for Jules FaVte or the, government
candidate. Childish laWs make childish peo
ple; and so long as the iniperial regi»eattemPts
to.drill.the. nation in this fashion, so long will
it find the people ready to break out like mis
chieYous school-boys, as soon as ever the re
strietionS which fetter them are removed.
There have been more disturbances (hiring

.The most remarkable, and at the same time

invites all his lellew-democritts .to unite in

in his, address, says justthe same
thing: The sovereign, he says, "must"
resign himself to this; he "must". conform to
the - will of the nation, and be satisfied to carry
out that, and "not his own.." There is the
same Plain speaking out every Where ; , and
Napoleon must either yield to this feeling and
part with his power, or else he must be pre

peasantry, obtained by bribing and ` the in-

the army, But the former, though they can
