LONDON.

Sept. 25,1864,

The three events of the month are—American peace p'ospect-f, Miller's capture, and Blair Atho 's victory.

Europe yet en'oys the blessings of peace; and the Vienna Conference " drag* its slow length along." The Noeth-Schleswig population (about 200,000 object to enter into the German family, and petition King Christian to save and protect their nationality, but the king says he is powerless: indeed he acquiesces, involuntarily or not as the case may be, in anything emanating from German lips ; and the poor Danes submit with what grace they rmy to the fortune of war. But the allied spiders seem determined to suck the life-Moo-1 out of their victim ; thsy insist on lising indemnified all expen-es of tha war, aud still leave behind them a German array quartered on the impoverished Jutlacders ; the Sound Dues are partially filched from Denmark ; and generally speaking tli? pecuniary fine levie I is so great as to impeiil the resources of the kingdom for many years, nnd this of itself causes resistance even from Iho prostrate Dane.; they rem<e tlie terms of peace as fibred, and the conference has-more than cmca broken dow.n and nome to a dead lock. European sympathy is the only consolation for the vanquished, whilst, unmitigated disgust is ■universally entertained for the outrageous conduct of Austria'jan.l Prussia But utterly exhausted as t ey ars. it wool I appear that the Danes must eventually accept the 'hard cheese" presented by their pitile-s and mercenary conquerors; and ami Ist their present loneliness aud uncertain future, their sorrowful gaze is turned sea-ward to give welcome to tlieir daughter and her Engli--h husband. Russia i huiks not of outside politics, but amuses lherself with the hangman's rope and tbe knout. the incorporation of rebellious urovinces into Holy Kus.-ia proper, and the banishment to Siberia of those yet remaining of tbe once gallant nation of people called Holes. France looks sternly on as yet, with folded arms and sluggish mien; the great man gives no sign nor speaks one word, approval or dissent; and whilst he is content to let things take "the even tenor of their way" none else dare move, and Europe is said to be at peace. M. le due de Persisny, in his annual speech, attempts to prove that France is blessed with a* much liberty as is good for her health, and sighs for no more ,* and his " ode to freedom" is much criticised—that the luke is a staunch friend and full of talent is universally admitted, and if he can gammon the people into the belief that they are happy ancl free, its r,o business of ours to mislead tbem to the contrary. Biarrilz is deserted tbis year ; the Emperor, ill or well as ifc pleases official bulletins to promulgate, smokes his pipe at home whilst the Emores*, takes a solitary voyage incog to Schwalbach to avoid P. Humbert, of Italy, with whom _er spouse makes a great .fuss. Wossips say the lady is ill and the waters of Nassau alone can re store health, others maint dn that connubial bliss was not first-rate at the Tuileries and a scene was imminent; but from whatever cause it arises man and wife are once more sepa* at' d. Bismarck and his d*aster, Russia's h.mperor, and other crowned conspirators, pay their respects to the influential Eugenic, and continental quid mines insist on a smack of politics in Ihe affair which adds to their hopes and fears. That Prussia is coquetting with France, Austria, ancl Russia is -quite clear, and we must not be surprised _at something serious yet resulting from the villainous proceedings in Denmark Anna v_rat < iscar.ls all her lovers ; ths ugly Con and the charming Prince are in turn dismissed ; nor Snain nor Italy U yet considered catch enouiih for the only daughter Trance now has in th* market, so Papa takes the huff and hides bis chngrin in foreign travel, whilst the co■veted priz"* iustead of going to be married, is going to Jerusalem ; and on their return we may hear of another bridegroom elect; mean time Henrique and Humbert condole on a mutual bereavement. . . Another love match has been nipped in the bud by the stern brow of N II I. It appears that -Joinville's son, the Count d'Ku, wants to marry a daughter of the Brazilian Emperor and step into his father inlaw's shoes, but Napoleon, in sinister niocd, objects to a French Bourbon some day mounting tlitat throne ; so remonstrances issue aid the courtship ends. One or two more royal wooings ancl I have done. Ihe Catholic Prince of Italy is now to marry a Protestant Princess of Denmark, and the Pope is irate at this fresh instance of antagonism displayed by King Victor to the Court of Home. King George of Geece is betrothed to the Rus*-ian Grand Duclipss rtlexandrovna. And as Denmark bas yet ar other fair damsel to dispose of. she is besieged by Uussia and destined as the bride ol the Czarewitch. Much political capital is made out of the turn which royal marriages now take ; the close alliances thus formed by Knglaml, Prussia, France,-Ku-sia, Italy, Denmark and Portugal may certainly lead to great changes in Europe•_ affairs, but after what his befallen the Danes 'twould he relying on a broken reed to expect, from, such influences any material aid on the .inch. The camp at Cl alons m\s this year more than ever the Km perm's iride; every branch of the service was there to be seen in perfection, presenting such a corps d'armee aa true soldiers love to look upon; the Child of. France ■lad juvenile quarters tliere, and is cvi ', dently being " trained up in the way it sbould go," and aU nations were invited to a.peep at the great show; but thcire was soratthing really rich in the invitation to the <KiDg of Prussia, and although he so far studied decency ai to stuy at home lie sent a military chieftain to lake a leaf out of the Frenchman's book, i.nl Bonaparte returns the compliment by sending French officers tothe Berlin reviews— ; indeed one knows not what to think of all this mar.osiivriiig wliich pretends to nothing political, but is nevertheless full of meaning if not mischief. , , • An instalment of 'Mexican standards has arrived in Pari?, and together with these trophies come special envoys from Maximlian to announce the Kmpire as a fait accompli to every European Court; they t.u.l tine tales of their lugust master and his alopted country, and the jolitest of speeches are made in return. The Austrian contingent is getting into form and on he eve of departure; l"t the poor devils once rrive on the scene ol their future glory, the sons

f France will be released aud will gladly return

consequently Italian patriors are detected by Austria in exten-ive conspiracies in \ enetia and the S lullnrn Tyrol ; arrests are ma c and dungeons Hied ; waggon loads of Hed Shirts and munitions ot war captured, and the disaffected country placed under martial law. A more ill advised ph>t than thh it is hard to conceive at a time too when Francis Joseph is band and glove wiih Prussia, and we look upon it rather as an Austrian ruse than a Gariraldian reality. Yet one cm scarcely be sun-rise-i nt auMitfroru Italy anatioi al debtof LIoU.OO i,00(>; an idle army of 400,000 men ; an animal expenditure of 33 millions tterlng with an income of onl. 2-t millions; 1-1 millions deficit to he made up every year by borrowing, and without a prospect of increa-ed revenue -surely this is very alarming, and if the state of Europe will not allow Italy to diminish its warlike burthens, patriotism itself may well despair. The Koman and Venetian questions ars matters of national life and death; and what's poor Italy to dv! If she keeps up her large army she is l» glared ; it she disbands it. she leave- Lombardy at ihe mercy of Austria backed by .russia. Pius IX. clings ten iciously to his kidnapped Jew boy, and he innocent little Ocei.i has ihe questionable honor of creating t-chisui in exalted places. Indeed, N. 111. is so weary of uph ildiog the patrimony of ft Peter, ihat lie signs a Con vention with Victor Emmanuel, whereby he undertakes to withdraw his soldier.* within two years, and italy is to pr >teci. ths Pope and the States of the Cliurcti against revolution; Florence meantime being selected as the future seat of the Lalian Government. There is much ambiguity in this arrangement and although it may be the best which can be obtained, no one appea.s satisfied. ' i would puizle a conjuror to say wbat shall happen two years hence; and the entire kingdom is on the move—Maz.ni an;, the party of action are dumofoundered; Garibaldi and bis men don't understand it; Pio N-'iio shakes in hissaerel slippers; Turin and other districts are tumultuous; citizsus fall beneath the sabres of their country men. aud whilst the present is full of mistrust, gloom, aud uncertainty, the future is dark as Erebus, aud most unpro-""''-h."Greeks are at their old work of internecine conflict and external discontent; brigandage flourishes, and the people daily get more audacious and unruly. Who urges tliem on to this folly, what they really mean, or what they fancy they'll be permi ted to do, are intricate problems. The hire fact of four sets of Ministers in ten months speaks volumes; indeed Athenian politics become a mystery,* and politicians also; they Soast of a deimcratic sentiment 3000 years old wbich is not io be stifled in a day ; but ons would think thai, by this time they had had enough of revolutions and niracies, and could well afford to try a little constitutional monarchy by way of a change. Their King was recently insulted by some sapient senator, and although the matter was solemnly debated, and the Assembly were bald enough to censure the honorable M.P. on this occasion, mischief in some shape appears brewing. Truly our young friend takes his voyage early ou the "sea ot trouble?," and as things go, it's no great honor to be King of the Hellenes. ,_,,,. „ , The G neva barricade and bloodshed called forth the strong arm ofthe law; aud thu is how the riot began: M. Chaneviere, a Conservative candidate, wase'ected Councillor, but M.. lazy, the Liberal, ha I a majoiity in the existing committee, and his fr{ends went in battle array to enforce his cairn-* iv Parliament House-the emeute became serious; senator were besieged in the Hotel de Ville; barncales sprang up a la Fi ancaise ; and it required more than onec mpauy of carabineers to level the enemy's works and release the State Councii from durance vile -fears were entertained lest foreign aid should be appealed to, for lieneva is very handy to a country prone to ideas and few people wi-h for another French protectorate ot Switzerland ; and in this incident we are again reminded ho(/ veiy unsettled is the body politic and corporate tbr ughout this ancient world-s,s ior Mr Fazy, he left the State aud crossed the borders to obviate further trouble to himself and friends. . From Madrid come 3 a resolution to erect fortresses and tike forcible possession of the Chincha Islands as the legitimate property ot Spain ; the Peruvians cry shani*. and c y out for help and if the latter be forthcoming there 11 be sharp work and a struirgli* yet for the rich Chinchas; but f-paiii baying shaken off her floth is again alive to fame and fortune-treaties stand for nothing now-a-days; might is right; the Gods do favor the large battalion*"; and again must Inca bite the dtist. It is no news_ that Spanish bonds are still unpaid and a drug iv the market; and row that the Pyreene.' no longer bar the path of commerce, and Spain aspires to a worldly posilion anl great alliances, the leajt she can do is to pay ofl oil debts and start afresh. The .tieen mother Christina ii sick of foreign scenery and anxious to return, to which end Narvaez takes the helm of State: energetic action is the order of the day; tha Peruvians are to he chastised, the black-* in San Domingo conquered, and Spain stand forth all in her wonted ln-ij sty The fourth year of the American couflb't brings even madmen to tlieir semes ; clammra for peace resound through the Empire City, where but yesterday it was " war to the knife," and high treason even to think of au,ht else - but if this is really to be the last c. mpaign. it see us resolve I on all sides to be a " glorious" one ; men are slaughtered by thousands, and if auy are to be left, peaca must come speedily. President Lincoln's last call for 500,001 is a fa'lun. not a lithe of tbem can lie bad without force, wbich would jeopardise Presidential prospects. The signs of the times are unmistakeable — the heroism and perseverance displayed in this awful business, bave revealed the Amcr'.cin character and the national resources, whilst the startling incidents of this year's campiianing give an interest tomilitaiy movements wbich from long continuance were becoming wecrisome; attention has been rivettetl and the people themselves now come to the conclusion previously formed elsewhere, that they eaonot conquer one another—all are weary of tbe war.; tbey view with alarm the encroachments of the Executive upon public rights, and at length awake to the difficulties and perils of their position ; hence die prevalent, idea of an arm'stice lor six months, and a convention of all the States to consider a featy of peace, and tbe rights of secess-on. We are all anxious for our cousins to put their hou=e in order; what they then intend for the outer world, we shall know in good time—sufficient for the day, being the evil thereof. Mr Chase's succes'or entered on the same ruinous finance as tbe arch cot-juror before bim ; but the time is past for such monstrons folly. Ihe national c irren-y is beneath contempt, the greenbacks are worthless, and gold has been quoted 169 P"r cent, premium ; the national debt, which in 1801 was but 12_ millions, is rapidly approaching the good round figures of Old i -nglatid, thus bringinir home to th<* American mind an annual tax of 2 j millions sterling, and if they honest lv mean paying it the iv flection must be uncomfortable ; and in addition to this enormous stun fco whicli the Federals have pledged the country there are States debts accumulatina- of inagniuile. Confederate craizirs adopt a new style of ■ .perations which acids up the rates of ins'irance arid friirhtens tlie shipowners ; the Tallahassee and other rover.s ravage the American coast an'! sixteen vessels have been destroyed in thirty huurs, nnd as many as fatty in three weeks; whilst, the press, from increased prices of paper, kc, have to double their prices, and many of them shut, up shop in toto. Well, all this tells a tale. The Election comes, and people ask shall f.incoln's party ran riot for another term; the race is betwee.i him and M'Clellan, the Western and North-western States combine, adopt peace for a motto, and have their base of operations on neutral ground, at Clifton House, Niagara Falls, and there the emissaries of the new idea, from Wortli and South, quietly discuss the great qne-tion undii* the protection of the British flig. without the mad excitement of brass bands tothe tune of " Yankee Doodle" or the " Star Spangled Banner." The Republicans can only be beaten by Democratic unity, and tbe question is, clo the Americans believe in it? M'Clellan accepts the Chicago nomination with "Armistici,Union, aud Peace," Tor his platform ; but Union is all bosh, and the Democrats know it: they want peace, and are
