In politics, the Btatkhmam will be Independent, No clique

Tho London Morning Star, alluding to the .
destruction of British cargoes by tho Alabama,
says : : - . -'t .. -i:
If British cargoes are wrongfully destroyed
on the high sens, we must have an accounting '
with some one either with tho incendiary who
applied tho torch, or his employer! who com- ,
missioned him to to act. Wo presume it is nn- '
nessnry to prove that the huruinr of a British 1
cargo, even when carried in an American bot-
torn, is ns nnlnwfjil ns Iho burning of a British
ship with British freight. ' While those nations
which have not jet acceded to the proposition
of tlio treaty of Paris may question tho right of i
the nentral flag to cover enemy's goods, it it
undoubtedly the law of nations that nentral j
goods found on board an enemy's ship mast be .
restored or paid for. In tho ordinary ease these
captures would have boon tuken to the nearest ,
prize. court of tho belligerent, and that which
was enemy's property would have been con
demned ns good prize, while that which was
tho properly of neutrals would have been re
Stored. ' '
Sonimos wages wnr without the usual respon
sibilities of belligerents. Having no prize court
open to him, ho assumes a part hitherto un
heard of in maritime warfare, noting in the op-'
posing capacities both of enptor and Judge.
To whom, then, cau tho British suhjeott who
have boon wronged apply for redress J They
oannot go to a Confederate Prize Court, for no
such court exists. They cauttot go to Semmes
the wrong doer, for ho, it a mere rover of the
seas never withiu tho territory of any civilized
State for much moro than forty eight hours to
gether. Clearly the redress can only be ob- ,
tinned at the hands of the British government,
and Parliament must seo to it that a remedy be
lortliwith lound. Tho surety or onr comtneroa

an immediate investigation.
1 ho Alahaaia is cither a pirate or a Confed

Tho most of these figures wo hove from offioial

ted successfully in several of the insurgent

draw upon. An artiulo in the Kiohinoud Sea
Unci, uf Juno 20th, which is copied into the
Lantern papers, admits that tho plan, of tho
summer campaign comprehended the withdraw
al lo t no liontiers ol ihe regular troops pre
viously detailed to guard aud protect theoities, .
Ihe defence of which win intrusted to voltin- .
leer associations id tlio militia at home. What
a weak reliance this is, may bo inferred from
th proposition of tho Sentinel to enroll and
drill hoys Irom twelve lo cightoeu years or age,
whn, it contended, could be "wudo efficient

to their recent heavy lost ol men, they have
sustained nu immense and irreparable loss In
