er aspect i 1 which tne ceremony ol the 4ih
ot March ha a grave significance for for
eijii powers The Government of the

new basis, and puis forward new preten-
Mr. Lincoln, in 1S61, pould claim,
wj(h 80me show oi reafcon, lo be President
of the whole thiriy-lour States; for, though
fifteen ol them had unanimously and per
etriptorily rejected him, they had taken part
in the election which led to his triumph.
Mr. Lincoln, in 1865, is manifestly the
President only of the North- Not only
. bave the eleven Confederate State taken
no part whatever in' lhe election, but they
have beu excluded Irom it by lormal and
express legislation -The pseudo Govern
ments of Louisiana and Teuneee chose
delegates to cast the vote of those States ;
aud Uiai vote has been rejected by the Con
Ires at Washinnton. It i formally de
clared that the eleven States which iorm the
Confederacy are out of the Union. ; The
position of the Federal Government is thus
materially changed. At the beginning ot
the war Mr. Seward chose to speak ol the
secessionists'as bands of persons engaged
in insurrection within the boundaries of the
Southern States, and denied,' boih by im
plication and- express terms that the! gov
ernrueats oJ those States had separated and
since the States had no direct and separate
relations with Europe, it was possible Ior
European statesmen, misled by tbe'anatogy
of kingly government, and unable or un
willing to appreciate the bituation of Slates
under a Federal constitution, 40 imagine
that the secession movement was in fact a
rebellion and thai it "was the duty of for
eign powers, until the rebels bad made
good their independence, to recognize the
original pjvernment as still retaining its
authority over the whole of its former ter
ritory. But the circumstances of the pres
ent election have dispelled any such illu
sions. It is formally declared that not cer
tain persons in thb Sonthern States, but
those States themselves as Corporate enti
ties and in their sovereign capacity, have
separated themselves from the Union, and
are no longer entitled to participate in its
privileges. In rejecting the vote of a State
overrun and occupied by Federal armies
Congress has recognized the secession of
thai State. Now, since it is admitted that
the States .in their sovereign capacity bave
broken irom ihe Union, the position of Eu
ropean diplomacy i no longer, even in ap
pearance, tenable. That position was this
that we decline to judge the merits of the
quarrel but awaited the result of the war
before recognizing the seceded State. But
it the States in their corporate character
have' seceded ( we must, by our action, pro
nounce judgment one way or the other. If
we decline 10 recognize them we "pro
nounce that Slates, whose sovereignty and
independence we ourselves by treaty have
acknowledged, have forfeited or abdicated
Iheir tovarei?n rights, and have not lerallv
he fcepi4ra,e themselves from their
late confederates. If we recogniza them,
we pronounce .tat, as toward ourselves at
,eJ reuinheir characler. As a

from which one third of (be constituent i by combustion, and also by the minnte par.
bodj is excluded. If they are portions of j ,ice9 of ,moke an ,oot whichre thrown
the union, congress couia have no right to .
excIode or dispense with their votes
they no longer belong to the Union, then i
Mr. Lincolo has ne authority over them, !
and his present enterprise is an attempt to (
conquer an independent nation, not to ab- '
due rebels. In a word, either the election '
is valid, in which case the eleven Con fed - j
eraie Slates are not members or the. Union, j
or it is invalid, and the Uuion has no gov- 1
ernmeut whatever. If Mr. Lincoln be law- 1
fully President of the Union, Ihe secession
of the South i a legal tact and Mr. Davis
is leja;ly President of lhe Confederate
Siaies. If we recogniza the present Gov
eritment of tha United States at all we do
by implication recognize the independence
ot ite Sou h. We have of course no hope
trial any sucn argument will influence me 1
policy of the Administration. With that 1
nolicr neither iiiice nor reason has int. 1
thing to do. Il is on ihe comparitivt
fctrength not on the diplomatic or legal rights
of the two confederacies that the action of
Her Majesty's government depends. But
there i a melancholy pleasure in stripping
away the last f-hred of excuse that has hid-
den Irom England the un worthiness of the
putt she has been made to play, and expo-
ing to all eyes the naked hypocrisy of Lord

Columbcs Cox the Guerrilla This no
torious character ha been prowling about
the southern part of Kenton county for
about three month. Ha claims to bave a
roving commission from the rebel authori
ties 10 enlist men in the rebel service, and
steal horses. His father lives on Cruise's
creek, about seven miles sooth of Indepen
dence, and he has a brother-in-law who
lives a few miles further down the same
creek, in an out of the way place. Many
suppose thai he makes this latter place Lis
headquarters, as he is frequently een.ia
that vicinity. Not long since he made his
appearance at a party at Mr. Seabory
Armstrong's, and played the violin for the
company to dance by. He was on that oc
casion armed with two large navy revolvers,
and boasted of hi ability to go where he
pleased, as he knew every movement made
by the Union forces. There are several oi
the rebel farmer' sons in that vicinity with
him and others who do not belong to his
party hnow all about bis whereabouts, and
keep bim posted. They frequently visit
Covington and learn all they can about mil
itary affairs and post up their leader. These
accomplices frequently get on a spree, and
disturb villages and neighborhoods, and
then disappear, as may be inferred, to the
retreat of their chief.

Those who may have seen an eroptioa' "

of this tremendous spectacle. The crater
is abaut six k'ilomeires in circumlerence,
with four horrible, principal mouths; which
eject enormous atones (o a height of inotV

brittle compared with that of previous erup- '
lions, but has a certain smeU of solpbur
and preserves an intense beau. It flowed
rapidly the first two days? during which it 7

Mascali on the north. The breadth of'-,
the lava is not greater than eight nor. less
than six kilometres. On Mount Strunedde
