But, if we have learnt much in this brief period of our allies, our antagonists, and ourselves, we have also been furnished with some light as to the feelings and dispositions of the remaining powers of Europe. So long as peace endured, tho policy of England and France was able to command respect and adhesion in the Courts of Austria and Prussia; so long as the contest was ono of Notes and Protocols tho right and justice of our eauso secured the signatures of the Ple nipotentiaries and the unequivocal support of their Governments ; but the moment we drew the sword tho case was sensibly alter ed. The speculative German mind is only too well accustomed to distinguish between the practical and theorctrical, between the understanding and the will. The under standing of Austria and Prussia admitted, as weli it might, that in setting limits to tho aggression of Russia, England and France were virtually preventing the encroachment of the Sclavonic upon the German race.— Prussia could easily feel that without the support of the Western Po wers she depend ed entirely on the sufferance of her mighty neighbor, and Austria could admit that Rus sia, possessed of Turkey, aud therefore mis tress of the Danube, the Hellespont, and tiie Adriatic, and able at any moment to inun date with her armies tlio plains of Gallieia and Moravia, would ever hold in her hand the very existence of the Austrian empire.’ The rest of Germany could not doubt that, without the protection of these two barrier States, its petty kingdoms and principalities would stand in the same relation to thc Russian empire as our protected Nawabs and Rajahs do to the government of tho East Iudia Company: yet Germany stands by, lethargic and inactive, while the conflict on which her librty or shivery, her political annihilation or redemption, her future ca reer, as a ibcus of human thought and a land of culture, learning, and refinement, depend, is fought out by other hands? His tory has no more humiliating spectacle—sa tire no fitter subject of invective. From the for shores of the Western Ocean Eng land and France come forth to do battle more for tlie rights of Eastern Europe than for their own: and the nations who e exist ence is the real stake of the tremendous game, stand by with listless apathy, and think they have dune much if they duly congratulate us on our victories, and forbear from lending moral or material support i-> a Power that will find the prize of victory not in our, but in tiieir, destruction.

Tiie Presidency.—The prospects, it is said, are that Kenneth Rayner, of North Carolina, will be the Know-Nothing candid ate for the Presidency. He figured largely at Cincinnati. A Know-Nothing paper has been established in New York, to advocete the claims of Gen. Houston, who is also supported by the New York Sun as an in dependent candidate. John Mitchel has written a letter to a Know-Nothing acquaintance in which ho gives it as his opinion that our naturaliza tion laws require a change; but at the same time he denounces the proposition to pre vent naturalized citizens from holding of fice. The Greytown people have appointed an agent to go to Washington and prosecute their claims for indemnity.
