United io one common family, and bwiod together by itrocg lraternl feelings these States present a noble front to" the world, and insure proves blessings to their children; distracted and rent in fragments all prestige is guae, ail that etresgth and noble bearing which has cballet ged the respect and won the homage of the world, i forever lost, and the stong arm of protection wi.ich their children enjoyed will be stricken down. are threatened with destruction-I-s it p'-ace or war! Let it be peace Throjyh peace alone Lave we the least hold upon hope. War in any form, wil. have, can Lve no other etlect but to wid-n the breach and, drown all hope of reconciliation. The abandonment of Sututer meets the approval of the mas-es of the Un;on. Abandonment of other string points in the secedifg States, wilt have a more direct tendency to calm the fetorm than would the action of armies and nnvjea. It has been demon strated tbt the revenue cannot be collected by Mr. Lincoln at the eeeeled ports it i likewise pretty well understood by this time that the new Presi dtf.t will perform but few of thoe things which the Republican press hah been ndeavoiir. to convince the people that he would pet form, lie hat not arretted the Southern Commissioners lor treason, as it was insisted by the llt-pub-licau press that the late administration ehuld have done. He has ordered the evacuation of Fort Sumter, and soon wt-may eipect to see further acts h'ghly nnpalitable to the Republicans. When he bhall have taken time to look the ground fairly over, and weigh well the result of the different lines of policy pre Bented before him, we predict that he will adopt the peace policy and discard entirely the idea of instituting war to for:e submission. The sober second bought will never counsel the marshaling of armies ace uavies wth a view of perpetuating this government. That noble result will be sought and, if at all, will be achieved through peace. None but ultra Republicans, we think, will object to that course. The conservative, Union loving wing of the party will ac-q 1 esce and Democrats will applaud. With pease wiil return aonfi ience n l business pro-perity ; with war will come disunion, dissolution and national dispaii. With peace men wou'd know wliere thev stood, and could calculate upon the.tnture with a reasonable de gree of certainty ; with war i o man could hope to do so. Let it be peace. sm - Slaughtered bj his Friends.

There can be but little doubt that Lincoln meditates a military coup d'etat somewhere upon something.

Collects t.e nevn0r-i . f PoI on the pimcnlty. Tbe ontried difficulties of administer ing the Government are now beginning j to be felt by the Itepublican party. Their theories are being one by one laid aside, and policies are being adopted, which but a short month ago would nave stunk of treason in their patriotic nostrils. The revenue question is the last bull they have taken by the horns. How to get rid of it, or round it, with safety, is a question of distre6ing moment. All the difficulties that surround this matter seem to have very lately burst on the vision of our contemporaries, which lately had no other note but "the public property mast be held if in the hands of the secessionists it mast be retaken ; the revenue mus-t be collected ; the laws must be executed." The New York Evening Post has taken the alarm, and points out, with a considerable amount of sagacity, the difficulties which are involved. After stating that duties must either be collected in the ports of the seceding States or these poits be closed to importations, or else the revenue laws will to all intents be ender ed null and void, it proceeds : The Government, without special authorization from Congress, will have no power to create a line of custom houses along the North Carolina and Tennessee frontier, to cover the Aikansas bordei with stations or revenue officers to intercept the contrabandists. The whole country would be given up to an immense system of smuggling, which on near two thousand rn.lcs of coast, wculd meet with no obtacle or interrnption or discouragement. What would Mr. Woodscrew Simmons, the Rhode Island senator, who caused a prohibition duty on wood-screws to bo inserted in the tariff which has just been passed by Congress, in order that a single screw-mid might make all the woodeis screws used in the United States, and that its fortunate owners might grow rich "be vond the dream of avarice " what "wo .ld this patriotic and most disinterested legislator say, if cargoes of untaxed woo l-screws were to be brought trom the Southern coast by our livers and railways and on board of our coasting vessels, and dispersed over all the country, and his hopes of gain disappointed Mr. Simmons would weep tears of hickory. To protect the interests of Mr. Simmons in the first place, and those of the federal treasury in the next, something must be done. The general expectation seems to be that the duties will be collected on board of armed vessels at the different ports of entry in the seceding States. Are our readers aware what a fleet' this would require? The.e are -even collection districts in the little State of Florida alone ; there are four in A'abama, At every port there must be coll otor, with hs army of appraisers, cl -rks, examiners, inspectors, weighers, measurers, etc. ; there- must be a naval officer and his staff of entry clerks. The Morrid tariff law, which we have just enacted, will make a larger number of (hose necessary than would have beeu rquired a mouth ago. Where twenty men would have then answered the purpose, thirty will now be needed. If we eod.-ct the revenue in this manner, with a fleet at every port, and a corps of custom house officers en board, it will cost us a gre-it dal more then we shall get. But can tli revenue be thus collected I The importers arriving at the Southern harbors will know how to address the custom house officers. "We have a cargo,' they will naturally eay, 'on which we do not care to pay duties just at present ; we must deposit it :n the "Warehouses for the term dining which we are permitted to do so by law," What wiil the officers of the customs do in that case? The fovern-ment has no longer any werehouses in the seceding ports. The hold of an armed vessei would neither be a proper nor a sufficiently spacious repository' for the goods. The duties in that rase can not be collected ; and the collector will be puzzled to know whether to let the ship proceed to her port or to retain Ler. We happen to know that there are importing houses at this m'uient preparing to take advantage of this opening for an unencumbered trade. Thev are getting rea Jy toc nvey their cargoes to Charleston or Savannah ; the goods will be landed there, and then brought coast wise to New York, where, being importations from a p rt within the Union, they v. ill be subject to no duty. The new tariff, with its strange formalities and ingeniously devised delays, f nns an additional inducement with them to take his course. What, then, is left for our government? Shall we let the seedling States repeal ihe revenue laws fr the whole Union in this manner ? Or will the goverp-ment choose to consider all foreign commerce destined for those parts where we have no en torn houses and no collectors, as contraband, and step it, when offer-nz to enter the collection district, from which our authorities have been expelled? Or will the President call a special session of Congress to do what the unwisely failed-to abolish all ports of entry in the seceding Slates ?

LOUIS CORRESPONDENCE. :'' Planter' Housb, ) t, St. Loui, March 17, 1861. Dxab Dick.: St. Louis, juat now, is in astato-of considerable ferment over the state ot political aflairs, the action of the Convention now in session here, the chances (?) of the return of Senator Green to Washington, and the approaching charter election; and the probabilities are that all of these, different matters will he very thoroughly dUcussed nd canvassed in all their bearings, for the people, merchants and mechanics have little else to do. Some ot the oldest and heaviest houses, in town, which, at this season of the year, have been accustomed to be up to their ears in business, inform me that they have absolutely nothing to do. They have been obliged to discharge one half of their clerks in some cases, all and even now are not able to make their expenses. One firm, who, to my personal knowledge, have, for years past, done the heaviest business in their line in this city, inform me that it it were not for their outstanding claims, the collection of which would be impeded by their retiring, they would close their doors at once, and ship their stock back to New York for sale. The Convention here in seesion is one of the finest appearing deliberation bod ies which I ever taw. Some of their speeches, however, belie their appearance. It is not likely that they will come to any definite conclusion at present. They will adopt resolutions expressing their attachment to the Union and desire to remain in it, and then it is proposed to adjourn for two or three months to await the determination of the Administration with reference to the South. The impression seems to have gone abroad that Missouri is resolved to remain in the Union at all hazards. This is a mistaken idea. She came into existence under our present government; has prospered under it, and has grown to be a great and wealthy State, and she desires no change if it is still to be administered upon the principles of our fathers ; but she is by no means unconditionally in favor of the Union ; she will not even wait for some "overt act," but wiil demand some guaranty that the principles of the Black Republican party and the Chicago Platform wiil not be carried out by Mr. Lincoln. It is feared that the approaching charter election will be the occasion of some serious disturbances. The business men of the city have become tired and exasperated at the ruin of their Southern trade, which has been partially accomplished by the votes of the Red Republican portion of the Germans. A collision is anticipated. The great Court House building which for years past has, like Oliver Twist, been continually knocking at the door of the Public Treasury, asking for "mon," is about as nearly completed as it was two years since. It is intended by our unconditional Union men in the Convention to introduce a resolution that Missouri will secede when the St. Louis Court House is finished. The Planter's IJouse, for a hotel of its reputation and pretentions, is the poorest and most expensive at which it was ever my bad luck to stop, 'lhinkof 3 per day for accommodations not so good as those of the Le Claire House or Scott House, fires and lights and everything else extra. The weather for the past four days has been chilly and unpleasant in the ex treme. The season is not apparently much further advanced than at Davenport. Our former fellow townsman, James A. Buchanan, Esq., is still here, engaged in the practice of his profession. He has worked his way into a large business. You shall hear from a e again before my return.
