The following is an extract from a let ter from a gentleman attached to the American Legation, dated Constantino ple, February 19, 1855, hi* brother in this cit j ; The news from the Crimea is stale enough?nothing whatever going on both parties tired out. This war has taught the world and the English one ar.e not a peo ple , that like mastiffs their soldiers pos sess but one requisite-courage. Ia the held, it is true, they won't nn ; but in the camp, it is equally true, they will not work. They think that Government must do every thing for them, and con sequently will not exert themselves even to ameliorate their wretched condition, by performing little things so essential to their comfort. Vou have gone through a campaign, and you know that to be a good soldier requires something more than courage. A soldier during war is not ?lw?ys fighting. For the e reasons the trench have proved themselves to be by far superior to the English When the spring commences. I arn sure, of the a nS2? T* ^ ?Ut b*7 Great Bl'tain. 5 OIK) will npt have survived the winter the vast majority being killed from exl posure and bad management. The last accounts state that they are literally starving, though there was plenty a* Balaklava, but six miles of!'. The officer* eat their scanty meals from their silver service, and the fable of King Midas can be told of the British array. Though the French have been silent, though their suffaings have not been ess severe, they have cloaked their losses by the immense reinforcement* ? hey have and are still sending. Ihe Zouaves, a set of uniformed outlaws have been again giving trouble. Becom ing disgusted with the dilatory proceed ings of their generals, and finding them selves daily decreasing by sickness, with every prospcct of suffering still more severely, they have refused to do anv dutv The emeute bec?me quite serious, artti was only eventually put down by order ing up several other regiments and shoot ing the ringleaders. They are fine fal lows for lighting, but have always been insubordinate. They are principally composed of-the mo.uvais fojeitn of the army who have committed some crime, and, instead of sending them to tlie aal leys or the penal col?nits in Algeria, they are formed into distinct regimenb ami attached to the army. For active campaigning they make good soldiers ; but for the service upon which ihej are Rrc almost worthless. \rt liave uo longer an army What lew efficient troops that remain were employed in the rather suborelinatc duties of porters. stiaining every nerve to |meetthe rilies in the spring with an overwhelming force. Large masses vf | troops are pouring into the Crimea ane concentrating at Odessa, Khershon, and Perekop. Success before Sebastopof is all-important to both belligerents. The conferences now Leing held at 'f^iT111 ne*?r- 001110 to an7 decision untd they are driven by the victorious cannons in the Crimea. Austria is far too wily to provoke the resentment of the Czar and hisimmens^ and well-appointed forces cow threateningly hanging on Gal .a na as long as the allied powers ar?. kept before Sebastopol. nor will she de clare against them if there is any hope of their success. She will, and wiseh too, maintain her present strict neutrali ty, and in the mean time prepare herself for either fortune. Iler tendencies or late have been,?however, toward a west ern alliance, but believe me they have been considerably checked by the bellig erent opposition of Prussia. From th* very commencement of the difficulties she has been wedded to the Russian cause ; nor could she be dragooned iate. the ranks of the allies by the combined and continued attacks of the English and French press. Enraged at the uncere monious manner in which she was treated by Austria in the treaty of the 2d of De cember, which she justly construed to be an effort to displace her from among the five great European powers, she has most positively refused to accede to Austria's proposition in the Germanic Diet, shortly to be held at Frank.'ort, to mobilize her army. In this she has nearly ail the large powers of the German Confedera tion with her; and this clearly shows that they are determined, if they do not join Russia, at least to remain neutral. This will certainly neutralize Austria's increasing belligerent propensities, for in joining the western powers it would have been under the hope of drawing with her the whole of Germany. The present tiff between Austria and Prussia is the old one broken out under a new phase - their supremacy in Germany. Being the two great powers of the Confederation, since i he Congress cf Vienna it has become the object of both to become its leader and the exponent of its principles. Austria thought this war offered a most excellent opportunity of rendering her influence paramount in the Diet, and has conse quently been thrusting herself for ward and endeavoring to keep her rival back. I am sure that one mill, busily engaged, would scarcely have furnished paper sufficient for the diplomatic notes which her ministers have written since the commencement of the present difficul ties. But in her anxiety to take the lead, she has run herself out of breath, and finds that instead of distancing Prussia, she may be placed herself iu that pre dicament. Much more to lose, and fat less to gain than her rival by a war, hhe should have carefully avoided any course that would have that tendency, unlets she had been perfectly certain of enlist inf on her side the whole of Germany. Am it it, she finds herself entirely in the minority, with her frontiers lined by Russian troops, the rett elite of her arait s. Let her once declare against, the Caar. tod her territories will be oremm, and her discordant and discontented pop ulation in open rebellion. Aided' Lj Russian gold and Russian baronets. Hun gary will rise en masse, nor will she b*3 able to suppress, even with French a> sistance, the revolutionary outbreaks in ? j 0 ? pends upon the conflict now waging in the Ctimea. Russia once victorious there, she Incomes the great and leruiu;? power in Europe, aud nothing can EUv the irresistible influence of her strength. Like a mighty Alpine avalanche, sha hangs over the rest of Europe, ready tj sweep away and crush every opposition, held but for a moment by the fate of S ? bastopol; loosen this knot by a compi le victory over the allies, and she will foil with tremendous destruction, end bury beneath her weight ersry thing thai dares to resist her orerwhelmiogstrengt It is fur this reason both belligerents arc straining every nerve to guarantee suc cess. The French are sending iarge re inforcements to open the campaign i:? the spring. For the present they hav ? abandoned all hopes of a successful a * *ault, and indeed it were madness to think of it. If the fortifications of the place were strong wheu they fii?t rou? mer.ced the siege, they have b?en rer dered tenfold stronger by the additional ones that the Russians have .,ince erected. All military writers agree that to car ? fy a fortification by storm, the besieging army should at least be three ?iroer, many say live times, greater than the be sieged. In this case, 'tis the reverse: the Russians are not only more numerous within, but they have a large armv with out tho city with an uninterrupted co-n munic&tiou. Beside, they will not on1.> have to take one fortification. but a se ries ot the in, and even should the whole of the southern portion of the city fell into their hands, the enemy, with ti?o commanding fortresses on the northc-n cide, will be able to pour upon thtm a continued volley of shot and sh*ll. The fact is, the active generals, in their ea gerness to win glory, forgot the old adage, "Look before you leap." In de siring to pluck the fruit, they were for getful of the difficulties in obtaining it, and now tind themselves in the miser able situation of being unable to retreat with safety, 01 advancc success. The hospitals here are leally springing up like mushrooms, fo great is the num ber of the sick and wounded daily ar riving from the Crimea. Should the al lies cortinue there until Spring, I fh\U go up and see what is going cn. Th? L'uikish ticops landed at Eupatoria aie dying oil* rapidly, just as I anticipate '. The Turkish commissi iai, if one enn call it such, is nK?6t miserable, and so i* ev erything connected with the country a^d people. Were it not for the excitement of the war, the place would be unbear able, unless one were anxious to enjoy a. state of torpidity. Grx. Jackson*.?A writer in the South ern Literary Messenger say3 the follow ing of Andrew Jackson: Jackson s spirit, if not more active, wss less fitted for the council hall than t'.. battlefield. His was not the tlabors" eloquence of the Senate, fcwords, no; words, were his arguments. Kis was th? true Demosthenic eloquence of action. He had neither the temper nor tl e abili ties to parley. lie could speak tersely, vigorously, movingly?but his won:~ were the brief words of command. Ac - tion followed speech with him, as lea ning the thunder. He had no patience for the solemn forms, the dull routine, the prosy speech making, the timid pV itudes, or the ratiocinations o. legislative debate. Sudden and quick in opinion as in quarrel, heart, soul and mmd all mingled in his conclusions, and the en ergy that conceived a purpose, star lei it into overt act. With him to think and to do were not so much two things c.. one. His eager and impatient soul would have fevered o?er a dehale or p: - position to declare war or to proviwL* means for prosecuting it, as the kci^h Ivanhoe on his sick bed in the castle c; Front pe Boeuf, when he heard the clan? or of the warriors storming the battle ments for his delivery. Like Job's wsr horse, he scented the battle from afcr and at the sound of the trumpet cri eel hn ha! The first man in resolution and daring in the community in which 1 - lived, he did not so much rise to the com mand of the warlike troops that tiocaed to the first standard unfurled to him, a., by a native allegiance to greatness, tho work in distress and terror turn through instinct for safety to the strong. Putting himself at the head of his raw recruits, he moved upon the Indian camps aud con quered, as easily as he found, the enemy. His work was as thorough as swift, lio did nothing by halves. A war with hiui was nearly an extermination?always a complete destruction of the power of the fee. He took no security from an enemj except his imbecility. He closed the war at New Orleans by one of the most hig nal victories, everything considered, upon record. But to do this he assumed pow ers and responsibilities from which Nel son might hare shrunk. But the erent sanctified the means, if those were indeed equivocal. Arbuthnot and Ambnsta were hung in Florida, notwithstanding the finding of a court martial, and the Spanish soil was no protection to those who from it concocted designs and lent themselves to plots agatnst his ccunlry. His military career was short but brilliant. Without any military training or educa tion, hediscoveied talents of the first or der in arms, and brought raw militiamen to the strict subordination o! the regular strrice. He was a rigid disciplinarian. He could sit beside a sick soldier all night and share hit last crust with him as with a brother, and could shoot him next mor ning for sleeping on his post. 13?* At Chicago, Illinois, wood is sell ing at #16 per conj*
