A vague notion seems to have got abroad amongst a few of the more rash and excitea ffiillowners that we could get over the diffi­ culty of our position, and supply ourselves w ithcittonto an unlimited extent at once, by recognizing the Southern Confederation. A more futile, baseless, and utterly illogical notion has perhaps never been entertained, la the first place, it is impossible for this country or any other to recognize a Confed­ eration wliich does not yet exist, and very possibly never may. Any recognition of die South now would be simply helping it in its struggle for ojttenco. It would be taking a side in the midst of a desperate conflict, and would thus of course bo in fact a declara­ tion of war against fhe North. But in the second place, if we did recognize the South­ ern Confederation ever so fully, if all the world recognized it, this would not in the least further the end in view. We should not one The Noirthern i)r. Russell, in his last letter to the Lon- 3U 'rimes, says, it may now be safely stated that Great Britain a.nd the United States little more than were on the brink of war 111 three months ago—in fact, were all but at igence of the great naval expedi- }t arrived at Baltimore.

W e should be ne whit nearer the cotton than before. S'o States would have exactly the right to blockade the Southern ports as now, and they would be certain to exercise the right even more stringently. We should have no legal ground or pretence whatever for attempting to break the blockade. If wa attempted it, this would equally be a decla­ ration of war against the North, and we could only carry ont the attempt by force.— But if force is to be used at all, it may just as well be used at once. And those who would suggest the recognition of the South in order to obtain a supply of cotton, ought logically to demand from the Government a uaval armament to take it by force. From the London Poet of Oct. 17. No foreign Power has the smallest right to interfere in the matter. Something might possibly be done in the way of negotiation, although that i.s very doubtful, but as to the question of right there cannot be two opin ions. A^ very erroneous have been and still are entertained upon this subject, we shall shortly explain the true state of the case.— We shall show, moreover, that, instead of wending matters, any active interference upon our part would only bring about fi-esh complications, and very probably involve us as principals in a contest to which, for many reasons, we earnestly desire to pat a stop. From, the London Star of Oct. 17, Lord Russell shonld havo observed the rigidly constitutional attitude of Mr. Lincoln’s Government betore he rashly described it as that of a combatant for “ empire.” Would our Foreign Secretary permit its application to his own Government, by the Minister either of a despotism or a republic, if rebol- lion were to show itself in one of the three kingdoms ? Yet nearly evri'y man who liai taken service in the in the oxercis< j,’ involve StLU win The Strength of tie Army. The administration has not only to light the secessionists, but to protect itself from the rashness of public men who urgo an im­ mediate advance of the army, without regard to its numcrcial strength of discipline. Sev­ eral intelligent writers at Washington are ■r.deavoring to appease the cla.nor tl aised, by their e.vplanations, 'llie corr pondent of the Baltimore Sun, under date October 31st, says: Persons arriving hero from the Northern cities slate that the people express surprise and disappointment at the slow progress of the war on the Potomac, and the prospect that military operations will cease till spring. They have an exaggerated idea of the num­ ber of the Federal troops, and underrate the difficulties ol an advance with tbreea hardly yet subjected to proper discipline, 'j'he force i» large enough for any practical pur­ pose. It is probably larger than that with which Napoleon made bis campaign in 1813 against llie aliisd powers of Europe. It is larger than that with which he won the great battle of Lutzen on the 2d of May, in that year, and which would, aS he declared, have enabled him to make a favorable peace, it he , cla.nor han the* army r campaign, he actually niai -and fought three great battli But the circumstances he ent that Napoleon himself to move.

The St. Louis Ae/rs (Union) calls atten- tention to n very remarkable article in the Bemocral. The Democrat article was as follows: “By the Union men of Missouri this (Fre­ mont) matter was well understood. 'I’lie People of the great Northwest understand it- 'i'heir sympathies are intensely enlisted in the just cause of Fremont, and whatever may betide him, they n'tll stand ly him. Tlits controlling facts of the case cannot be con­ fused or ignored before any considerable por tion ot the country.

These reasons Mr. Lincoln could give the fight-urgera, and he could substan­ tiate them by facts. A politician comes here, and growls be­ cause he sees troops march miles merely to bo reviewed—“Why not,” he indignantly e x ­ claims, “ march the same regiments toward Manassas ?” 'I’hat little game has ed at once, and we troops tired os to resign, and desiring permission to avail mgton. _ It is common gossip thtye counsels and exper' been play- because our IS were undisciplined, becauie they were out by m arching, and because they did not know'manyDf their Buperior officers.- A UK5 iimiiy revievTff now taking^ place calcnlated to prevent a repetitioi which led to tlia h a t di The Besclt m the County. We are not disappointed at the result in this County. From the first, wo have not believed that any combination of opposite elements could be effected that would pos sess force enough to break through the iron bonds' of party which the leaders of the Re­ publican organization in this county have constructed for their followers. Their tem­ per is iUustrated by the remark of one of those leaders, that “ never shall the political “ power of Herkimer county pass out of the “ control of the Republicans, if it can be p.e- “ vented ;” and he and hia co-leaders entered the field with an activity and au'unscrupu- lousncss that has seldom been paralelled in the county. Despite the uct that, for weeks before, they had been uoremitting m their professed superiority to party and partizan advantpges, and in their indignation at Dem­ ocrats because they remained incredulous at those professions, every one of the Regency felt a pet'sonal interest in putting down a movement which, as they discovered, might be used in some other form than to exclu­ sively hen^t the Republican, ami destroy the Democratic party, as they fondly be­ lieved the result of their “People’s move­ ment” would d o ! Then it was that they began to look to their “political power” in Herkimer county; then it was they began to express the opinion that the People were a h u m b u g th e n it was they closed their lips against any further desire to disregard party.' Then they con­ cluded that, in spite of all they had said of the Democrats for refusing to abandon their party, a man coui^ after all, be a patriot. he obeyed. We believe that only Fre­ mont's 'personal hiterposition could, in the case supposed, avert incalculable disaster.\ The St. Louis Jfexes says: This remarka-’' ble language was uttered in a city where martial law prevails for the protection ol the Government, whose soldiers are thns incited to mutiny! The paper in which it was ad­ dressed to the Federal troops in Missouri, was borne to them in their camps by tlie mails of the very Government against which the language is an insurgent appeal! And has it come to this, that the Government of the United States cannot remove one of its officers, for a good reason, or even for a bad reason, without being threatened w ith mutiny in its armies^ Is the Government so weak as to be peremptorily dictated to by news­ papers which make their support of it contia gent to tho support of a certain officer? Are we becoming so eclipsed by the genius, or appalled by the fear of military leaders, that we already begin to array ourselves un­ der the banner of Sylla or 2tlarius, while none are to stand by Romo? And if the language of the Democrat — which is F ebmoxts ' mouthpiece—is remarka­ ble, the statement made in the following tract, as conveyed to the public under the date of “Fremont's Head-Quarters, Gamp Lyon, Mo., Oct. 31,” is monstrous, and opens * o view 07ie of the greatest dangers we have to apprehend, in the midst of the present perilous struggle. Ambition invites desper­ ate enterprises, and who can say that oar country is unlike all others, in that the man will not appear who will accept a dictator­ ship, even at the expense of the liberties of a great people ? P rkmoxt ’ s officers are, many of them, old world revolutionists, are miliar With anarchic proceedings, and with whom loyalty to a chief, it may Le easily con­ ceived, is foremost to that of loyalty to our Government.

We knew tha professions of these leaders were a cheat and a delusion; and we be­ lieved the lime had not yet come when their subordinates, tl rough the county, would dare to rebel against the power of a Regency that knows how to “punish their enemies,” if they do not always faithfully reward their friends, when nothing is to be made by the use of them. We did not believe, therefore^ a ticket, though formed ou precisely the basis of the People’s State ticket, could be successful in this county. Others, more san­ guine, had confidence that the mass of the people—Republicans and Democrats alike— were desirous that a movement of the kind should bo inaugurated ; and perhaps this was true, but the p a rly lash had not then been applied to the Republicans. This People’s raovenunt has cost the Democratic State ticket some votes. This we regret; though it was inevitable from the uature of the contest. But let not the ene- ^ mies of the Democratic party imagine there '^'ve 1 less Democrat in this county than there ’ ” was one year ago, or that our organization ia weakened. Not only is this not so, but there are a good many men Democrats now who wereRepublicans one year ago. To all these, and to our old time Democratic brethren, wp say—adhere to each other, close up your ranks, and be ready to meet the responsibili­ ty that is to come upon the couservative Democratic party, before many more elec­ tions come and go in our land. As for any farther attempts to manage political concerns on the “no-party” basis, we apprehend there will be no more of them.

AYe believe the Democrats, as a whole, in this county, are guilty of no such hypocrisy. They have not pretended to be “no party’’ men ; they have professed nothing that has not been squarely acted up to. Llnlike their Republican opponents, who have denounced every mail as a Se­ cessionist who would not abandon his party, they have turned no sharp corners to draw party lines with a firmness without parallel. Though not victorious.as they had no occasion to expect they would bo, the Democracy of Herkimer havo lost nothing, but are better prepared than ever to renew tlieir efforts to obtain that ascendancy which of right belongs to them county. quarters Fremont’s removal would cause ind no little trouble iu camp, number o f officers declare that they would resign in that event, or insist upon creating him dictator of the South-west, indrpendeni o f the Adminisi7-aiion, which ii bitterly de­ nounced in camp fov its vacillatory and injzi. dicious policy respecting his coarse in this department.

The object of thas paper, then, was to show the nnconstitutioiiality of the proceedings of the (iu) famous Hartford Convezitioii. In tbe report made to that Ooiiveiition by the dele­ gates from Massachusetts, Connecticut, &c., it was said that “ whenever it shall ap]iear that the cause* [of our calamities] are radi­ cal and permanent, a sepaz'ation byequitabli arrangement will be preferrable to an al­ liance by constraint, among nominal friends, but real enemies, inflamed by mutual ha­ treds and jealousies, and inviting, by intes­ tine divisions, contempt and aggression from abread.” Virginia, it appears, remonstrated against this doctrine; any attempt to wilh\ draw from the Union without a consent of the majority of the States, was treason.

A Hopeful Indication. The National Anti-Slavery Standard con­ tinues its war against the Administration. It charges that “slavery is as prevailing and potential with M l Lincoln’s Government as with Mr. Davia’,” and that “our authorities are still as much under slaveholding manage- n’-int and dictation as in the worst years of PiEHCB or Been WAN.” But this notorious journal goes still farther. After speaking of “defeat organized at the Capital,”—of the blockade as a “mockery”—and asserting that there is “but one port in the nation effectual­ ly closed, and that port Washington,”—it says men are coming to the conclusion that “success against the enemy, under the ciieum- stanees, not only is impossible, but ought to be so.” Abuse coming from this quarter, all sensible men will admit, is one of the best s i p s of the times.
