committee of the Zouave Corps, through Lieu
tenant Walter Benner, presented the corps
with a handsomely engrossed set of resolutions,

An Honored IUuivfnt. The First Regi

following brave nnd patriotic etHcers :
Mnjor Robert Anderson, who has so justly
acquired the adiniralion and fovor of all Union
loving citizens of tho United States, for Lis
gallant retention ofFort Sumter, notwithstand
ing the menaces of South Carolinn.
Lieut. A. J.SIemmer,the hero of Fort Pick
ensj at Pensacola, in Florida, who, next to
Major Anderson, has set a brilliant example of
lojnlty and chivalry to all United StatesJolUcers.
Cant. Bennett J. Hill, who, in Texas, first
dared to disobey the treasonable order of Gen.
Twiggs, and, relusiug to surrender the Govern
ment properly under his control to his coun
try's enemies, avowed his purpose to dufond it.
and called in reinforcements of tho United
States troops to eunblu him to do so, and also
to recapture other United Stales property al
ready seized by the Texas authorities.

Another Crinoline Accident. A woman in
a dry-goods store in Buffalo, N. Y., had seated
herself on one of the revolving stools now in
use in front of the counters in such establish
ments, nnd on rising got her hoops so com
pletely and (irmly entangled about and under
revolving top as to anchor her for the time
being to the spot. The only method of reliev

gallant storekeeper, the fastened fair one was

WASitiNOroN, March 12, 18G1.
Mr. Editor: Among the many candidates
for tho position of postmaster at Baltimore,
Maryland, there is not one more worthy of it
than Dr. William J. Nichulls, of that city.
No firmer friend has the principles of tho Re-
fiublicau parly, and no member o( that party
abored nioro earnestly, and with a better will,
to promote its interests, fan Dr. N. Like a
faithlul sentinel upon the watch-tower, he has
stood by it during the battle of the late cam
paign, ever ready to guard nnd defend it from
Us enemies, and to welcome with an open heart
and hand its friends. Always ready was he to
contribute to its wants and purposes ; and now
that brilliant success has crowned that party,
such uieii us Dr. Nicholls should not be lor
gotten. As a private citizen, no 0110 lu the city of
Balti noro enjoys more fully the confidence of
his fellow men. Intelligent, energetic, kind,
nud amiable, he is just the geiitleiuitii suited to
such a position.
I sincerely hope, with a largo member of his
Republican friends, that full justice will bo done
him, and that he will be rewarded by his party
for his noble and successful efforts to serve it.

Prospectus of the National HepuMlean.
Believing that the time bus arrived when the
great fiepuollcan parly of the United States ought
to be fairly represented iu the dally prets of the
National .Metropolis, we have embarked In tho
enterprise of supplying the citizens of the District
of Columbia with a daily publication, under the
title or the " flATioNAt HtrUBLiCAx."
I In its political department, this journal will
! advocate und defend the principles of the Rcpub
1 Hem purty, nnd endraior to disabuse the public
I mind ot groundless prejudices which have been
, engendered 11 pi Inn It, by the false accusations
ot Its (ntmlcs. Having the utmost confidence
that Ihe administration of Mr. Lincoln will be
1 such as to merit our approbation, vnS expect to
I yield it a cordial, but not a servile support. la
tue great issue that is likely to be marie with bis
administration, by the enemies of the Republican
party, the people of Washington anl the District
of Columbia have more ut slake than the peopl
of any other portion of our common country. We
believe that to support Mr. Lincoln's administra
tion will be synonymous with maintaining the in
tegrity of the Federal Union, against the machin
ations of those who would rend It aiuuder. No
one can doubt upou which side of this issue the
people of Washington will be found, when they
come to realize that it Is fairly forced upon them.
We feel confident, therefore, that In yielding to
the administration of Mr. Lincoln a cordial sup
port, we shall have the sympathy of un immense
majority of the people ot this District and vicin
ity. It is not our design, however, to make the
National Republican a mere political paper. We
intend, that as a medium of general and local

Of all tho ills that nfllict men and women, few
are so agoulzing us Dyspepsia. It is a scrt of
combination of many diseases. What is still
more unfortunate is, that the treatment of the
malady is not generally understood. The medi
cines usually taken do no sort of good whatever.
Thanks to science nnd Da. Uiiezliy, a tjieeiic
has now been obtained. Okeelev's Bouuuox
Birmts take straight hold of the disease, and at
once begin a cure. Thousands of well-attested
cases of cures of Dyspepsia, Indigo tion, and Fe

are in the possession of the proprietors. For sale
by druggists and grocers everywhere.
