IL O'Xeal, Esq., a well-Jnown tr ruber of the bar of this city, was f nrd dead in Lis efSee on Commercial Flace, In the character of the deceased were strange ly mirigled the weaknesses and better de merits of Lunianity. Kind, genial, studious itnd deeply versed in the lore of Lis profersion. he was s-till too sensitive for a successful law- 2 tr, arid not sufficiently practical for the ere- ry-day business of the world. Mr. O'Neal was formerly a member of the council of the old Firbt lluuicipulity, and for some years he served on the School Board of that Pistriot Jlore recently, he received the appointment of Justice of the Teace, which office he filled for svout a year. Even his failings were to some extent shielded by a high sense of honor, which was always present in Lis tlionghts. May he rest in peace ! The Washington LtpuVamn, the general tone of which is ultra-Republican, in a rery able review of Senator Sumner's universal suffrage speech, makes the following sensible remark : The great Sumnerian curative is the universality of the ballot. 1 be ballot is protected in every rjtate la this L'oion by are. by sex. and in Massachusetts by the qualification of intelligence, frbould John Stuart Hill, with bis matore years and ripened judgment, seek to become a citizen of that State, he would have to wait five years before he could caet a ba'Jot. If public safety requires Mill to wait th it length of time before he enjoys the ricbt of suUrsee. is it not running some riak to enfrabchiee an uun tiered race, aa ignorant of ,governrcents aa t-e untutored savage of t ea-t ai Africa, tave what knowledge it has obtained by a tuition as a chattel for two centuries ? Are trillions reared in servitude, without a p-sessioa, unacquainted with the sanctities of matrimony, and whose very cabins have been the property of ether, niied for the highest responsibility that civilization irrpoees on the ciu'z'D ' May But a tuddeo and lavish outlay of this boon degrade the ballot without elevating the race? We trubt that this sensible view of the subject will be adopted by our Northern cousins with whom the rp'Ji'ir-an is an authority. The South is inclined to deal generously with the negro, but does not feel inclined to " degrade the ballot without elevating the rare." !! Kattea.

Th Preeident expressed himself a beirg tow what he had always been" the friend of tte poor ard the lowly." He had never broken laith aith anybody, and if Li past course and hia former language were not a sufficient guarantee that he meant well towards the colored people, and would endeavor to secure to them a fair chance, nothing he conld say or do now would give any such guarantee. He thought however, that it waa best to speak plain'y, and he did not believe that the effort now making by some who call themselves .the negroe' special friend to force universal suffrage open the States was wUe or judicious. He thocght it teedtd to embitter the feelings of the whites. Our efforts should be to cultivate calm-nc ?s std confidence. He believed it would result in a great injury to the prospects of the colored people. In repaid to difference with the party that elected him. he said he might differ with indi T'dcals of what was called the Union party a to tie n t l to be used, but he considered himself in general accord with that party as a whole ia the eids to be rtsched.

Taia country has always yearned fr g od rela'ions with Eigland. lbriceonl. in all it history has tt at yearning been fairly met; in the days of Hairpdrn and Cromwell : ag na in the ast nu ns-try of the elder Pitt; and once again ia the m nia-try of Shelburae.

The act o! recornizing the rebel belli ;rent was concerted with France ; France, so beloved in America, cn which she hid conferred the greatest benehu that one people ever conferred on au-other; France, which stands foremost on the continent of fcurope for the eoh-iity of her culture, as wed s for the bravery and generous impa!e3 of her tons; France, which for centuries had beea movirg stesdily in its own way toward intellectual and political lreedom. The policy regarding further colonization of America by European pow-eis, known ccmmoLiy as the d ctriae of Monroe, hsd its origin in France, and if it takes any man's Drte should bear the name of Torgot it was adopted by Louis the Sixteenth, in the cabinet of which Vergennes was the most important member. It is emphatically the policy of France, to ahich. with transient devisuoos, the Bourbons, the first Napoleon, sl1 the Houe of Orleans hare ever adlered. TUB larKHOR Hai'OLSOX AND MEXICO. The lat President was perpetually harassed by rumors that tte Emperor Napoleon tue laird de-aired formally to recognize the States in rebellion as sn independent power, and that England held him back by her reluctance, or France by her traditions of freedom, or he himself by hi ovn better joogmect and clear perception of event. But the H public of Mexico, on our borders, was. ourselves, distracted by a rebellion, and from a sin liar cause. The monarchy of Eng'snd had fastened upon us slavery, which did not Jisaopear with independence : in like manner, the ecclesiastical policy established by the Spanish Council of te (Lilies, in the days of Ctarles ths Fifth and 1 bli p the Second, retained ita vigor in the Mexican Republic. The fl.'ty years ot civil war unier which the had languished, waa due to the bigoted system ahioh was the legacy of a monarchy, just as here the inheritance of slavery kept alive political strife, and culminated in civil war. As with us there could be no quiet but through the end of slavery, so in Mexico tfcere could be no prosperity ud'ii tne crushing tyranny or intolerance abouid cease. The party of slavery in the United States sent their enjutaries to Lurope to solicit aid ; and did the party of the church in Mexico, as organ ized by the old Spanish Council of the Indies, but witn a ditlerent result Just a the It publican party hid made an end of the rebellion, and was es'awisbing the best government ever known in that region, and giving promise to the nation of oruer, peace and prosperity, word was brought u. in the moment of our deepest affliction, Utat the French Emperor, moved by a desire to erect in North America a butties for imperialism, wcu'd transform the republic of Mexico into a fecuEdo-geniture for the House of Hapsburg. America mignt complain, sue could not then inter- pore, sod delay seemed justifiable. It was seen that Mexico could not with all it wealth of land, eon pete in cereal product with oar northwsist ; nor. in tropical products with Cuba : nor could it, under a disputed dynasty, attract capital, or create public works, or develop mines: or borrow money; so that ths imperial system of Mexico, which was forced at one to recognize th wisdom of the policy of the republic by adopting it could prove on y an Daremuuerating drain on toe rrenca treas ury, lor th tup part of an Austrian adventurer. the ptirs or noMM asD ran aniiLLtow.

Tte blessing of the Pope at Rome on the head of Duke alaximiliaa could not revive in the nine teenth cemarr tr e ecclesiastical policy of the six teenth ; and tne result is only a new proof that there can be ne prosperity in th S at without religions ireeoom. raLMIKATOM AMD LINCOLN.

Palmers ton traced nis lineage to the t me of the conqueror; Lincoln went back to only hia grandfather. Pa merston received hi education from the best scholars of Harrow, Kdinburc and Cambridge.

PaJmeraton waa exclusively an Englishman, and made hia boast in the House of Common that the interest of. nor land was his shibboleth. Lincoln thought always of mankind, as well s hit own country, and served human nature itself. Ps merston. from his natrowuess as an Englishman, did not endear his coan'ry to any one Court, or to any one people, but rather caused aneasinea and cisiiae : Lincoln left Amenca more beloved than ever by Lbs people of karoo. Palmers ton waa eu possessed and adroit in reconciling the conflicting claims of the factioLaf the aristocracy: Lincoln, frank and ingenuous, knew bow to hold himself ia th conflicting opinion of the people. 1'aimerston was capable of insolence toward the weak, qnick to the sense of honor, not heedful of rights: Lincoln rejected counsel given only as a matter of policy, snd wa not capable of being wilfully n.-.just Palmeraton. eenually superficial, delighted in banter, and knew how to divert grave opposition by playful levity ; Linola wa a maa of infinite jest on hi lip, with saddest earnestness st hw besrt Palmeraton was a fair representative of the aristocratic nobiiity of the day. choosing for his tribunal not the conscience of humanity, but the House of Common. Lincoln took to heart the eternal truths of liberty, obejed them as the commands of ProviJeac. and accepted the human race as the judge of his fidelity. I'aimerstoa did nothing thatwnl endure. His great achievement the separation of Belgium, piaced that littie aingdom where it must gravitate to France. Lincoln tiaihed a work which time cannot overthrow, palmerstna is a shining example of the ablest of a cultivated aristocracy. Lincoln shows the genuine fruits of institutions where the laboring man share and assHts to for the great ideas and de-gtis of bis country. Pal-tterston was buried in Westminster Abbey, by the order of his (,'ueeu. and waa followed by ths Britisi atis'or-rtr y to his grave, which, after a few year, wul hard'y be noticed by the tide of the graves of Fox and Chatham. Lincoln waa followed by th sorrow of his country serous the continent to bis ret ni-t la e in the heart of the Misswippi Valley, to be rememhered through all time by hiacouatry-mea and by all the people ia the world.
