Then Ireland and the Fenian* will stand by to take advantage of the excitement and squeeze out a f#w concessions. It you read the London papers you will observe that all blow hot just now upon America. The Telegraph the other day had a long leader in which it mentioned powerful France and still more powerful America. All I>ondon was wild with excitement this evening about a report of a resolution having been introduced iu Congress to suspend itiplomatic relations with Eugland. Fancy th<'elTV<ct. 1 believe tlie English people .ire really friendly to the people of the T uiU-d State*., and that a war with America would be very unpopular in England. The weather is mild and gentle as gpring, and the parka and forests are alive with birds.

The Chronicle continues its abuse of the rerespectable gentlemen of the First Presbyterian Church vrho deprecate its use as a political rostrum, and especially as the scene for foul- | mouthed attacks by a negro orator against th*? Chief Magistrate of the nation. It 6uits the purpose of the Chronicle in this connection to make a fulsome laudation of the K??t. Byron Sunderland a* the fearless and thrilling divine whew impassioned eloquence against slavery and secession have made him the mark for the hatred of the sympathizers with rebellion, and is the only reason why he h:u become irksome to his congregation Now thig is simple trash, pure unmitigated trash, as will be comprek.. MH * t. ^ A?r nuru IIJ nil iaumiAi wim mc tHRTJ Ul Vile dapper little Boanerges of the First Presbyterian Clinrch. We have not the slightest illwill against that gcthing little gentleman, and are quite willing to indulge hi3 teverish cra\ing to tigure in print and attitudinize emotionally before the public unhindered, but when it is undertaken in his behalf to put hi in up as a patriot martyr who is being persecuted by a "secesh' congregation for principle'- sake, it may become necee.>ary to strip him of ins ja -kdaw plumes and shew him up in hi? true light?a well enough meaning man, but light ballasted, and of such insatiable thirst for notoriety that he would cheerfully attitudinize d:iugling from a b.'tlloon if thereby he could ligure before a crowd, or get his name in print. He would willingly split himself up to his clerical neckcloth to be able to straddle wide enough to tread in the sensational footstep- of a Spurgeon or a Beecher. Does not every hearer of his recognize this as a true picture ot the man ! //? a devotee to anti-slavery principle ! Why ii is> 110101 ion? iu;ti ifB? man iu?' c/?r .Hi' <<* t 'live years ago" judicious members of bis congregation, averse to pulpit politics of any kind, had to hold the erratic Ilyron back by the coattails to keep him from rushing into politics to give abolitionism "je**e" from a "conservative" standpoint. The plain truth is, that the disaffection to him in his congregation originated lout; prior to his abolition shoot. Its m'-mber< hid come to the conclusion that while h?> could pray with the beaatifuleat cadence-, and display his white handkerchief, and pass his white hands through his classic locks with a languid grace not easy ol attainment, that as a religious teacher he was the most unmitigated humbug that ever walked. His insatiable, all-absorbing craving for notoriety took him ?o continually from his legitimate church duties as to make him the most unfit person imaginable to sustain a responsible pastoral relation. How this itch for notoriety led hiin to Paris, where he proved such a dead failure on On* hands of the American church that his New York sponsors were very anxious to return their "elephant" to the Washington congregation some time before his two years" engagement had expired, and how precipitately he was hurried back to be thrust upon an unwilling congregation, are matters affording a rather piquant chapter, which we have not time to enter upon to-day. It is sufficient to tay th~t liis Paris-American congregation displayed the same bad taste, and want of good judgment in disapproving the style and caliber ot the Itev. Byron that has been displayed by 'his Washington congregation. We do not see, however, that it is branded' therefore, as "secesh." That style of treatment is reserved by the CKronicU for Washington corprejrations. in inic. connection tne Chronicle makes much parade of the 4i card" (to be found elsewhere) of the lady managers of the Colored Home, in which card the hulies?Mrs. Senator Wade and others?raise their hands in piou? horror at the allegation that the lecture of Kred. Douglass "although ostensibly to obtain funds for ilie benefit of the colored orphans." was, " in reality, to enable certain political parties to promulgate their peculiar doctrines, iu opposition to the Tiews of the President of the I'nited States and a large majority of the American peeple." The ladies say that their purpose was~"io raise money for charitable purposes, and that 'one of rK?nrt#rt to uvu ?<? h-iva > lecture from Frederick Douglass. not on political or part}- topic*, but in reference to the assignation of the late President, an atrocity which tliey supposed all mankind condemned." Tlie authors ol this statement being ladies, it is hard to characterize it in littiug terms. Is it within the boumU of possibility that these Indies had not seen aught, or heard aught, of this Douglass lecture as delivered by him through all the North, and reported in nearly evciy paper in the country Were they not. aware that it al>ouiided in the gro-sest attacks upon the President and his policy ! In thelec iur<- ay flciiYoreci nere ppme or tlie moro olTen-ive attacks upon tLe President were suppressed for iome reason, but enough were retaiued to show the unfitness for its delivery in any honse ot Divine won-hip, especially when it put the congregation in the attitude of thrusting these oilV'ii.-1 ye utterances directly upon the ear of the President. Even a* toned down by the f'hroni lr, that papt r reports Douglas a* sty ling the President the Pharaoh who is pertecutiug the hlat k race, and as saying : I '1 he crime of crimes which now threatens th.s nation is not one that kills the body, btit ,nie Mint murder* the soul of the nation.
