peculiar to married II iwuiians to forsake one an

to appreciate petty tribulations and grievances of
married life, jurisdiction in such cases ought to be
extended to him.

The attack was begun on that day by the Rebel
Fteaiu-ratn Louisiana, Capt. Hullins, which, finding
her guns iin. perative ngainst the Federal gunboat
Cincinnati, made for her under a full head of steam,
intending to run her down. This maueuvre was met

Niw Yore, May '23. The following is from the
Riltimore American's Fottress Mjnroe correspon
dence: But little change in affairs had occurred at
Norfolk. The Mayor aud members of the City Coun
cil still refuse to take the oath of allegiance. All
intercourse with the people of Norfolk and Ports
mouth has therefore, been stopped". Gen. Wool hns
sent a proclamation to the people of Norfolk, this
morning, notifying them that the matter is entirely
in their hands, and as sunn as they would acknowl
edge the supremacy ot the Government, they will en
j iy its fostering care; but while they remain as at
pre-enf, in a rebellious mood, they will be cut off
from all the advantages of trade and commercetind

they have is progressing. As far as can be ascer

The opinion is gaining ground -.hat the rebels will

Skirmishing Bkfobe Corinth Lorisvttt.E, May
22. A dispatch from the army before Coriuth yester
day says that considerable skirmishing along the
whoie line to k place yesterday. The relx-ls in
every case were driven back. Our loss was 40 killed
and wounded. The enemy's loss the same. Desert
ers continue to come in d lily.
Fkati bes cr the Latb News. The severe retail,
tcry n. ensures aJopted by the Government are pro
ducing their due effect. Every day develops addi-tiv-nal
proofs of a desire amccg Urge nuinners in the
insurrectionary States to return to their loyalty.
The greatest disaffection is cot merely asr-erted, but
positively known to exist among the armies of the
Southern Confederacy. At Corin:h a r.un.ler of
companies, amounting to several reg:men's. have l-een
uuder arrest, and similar difficulties have prevailed
in Davis army sine? its retreat from Vorktown.
Five hundred deserters had gone over to the Federals
in a body, aoJ still they were fl-cking in frim all
q1 arters, reporting that nothing but the in-possibi'ity
of getting away rrevented others frjm j ining. A
strong Union sentiment exists in the S'ates over i
which the recent conquests of the Federal arms bave ;
extended especially iu Virginia. Incurable dis- j
utiioui;s are flocking further Seuth. Tlie plan cfj
burning cities and destroyirg pri perty is becotuii g j
very unpopular except with the laudle.-s classes. I
The Senate has passed a resolution requiring the !
President to ascertain in which of the States iusurrec- J
tion exists, whereupon real estate is to bi charged
with its due propouion of the direct tax imposed tt j
the last sessiou. The severest measuies, however,
exceeding iu their stringency the ordinary coufisca- !
tiou acts of the day, ore these by which the slave j
property of the States in iusurriciii-u i-t declared
1 he great armor-clad nondescript, the .Merrimac, i
has gone the way of all Rebel vessels at 1 ist, to the '
chagrin of those who fancied that she was destined to
alter the course of the war at the Si uth and drive
our navy from the seas. The plating beinj; an after
thought and very cumtrously done, the vessel, which
on Iter first launching as an iron plated war steamer, !
merely rolled off the stocks and began sn.kiug, was ;
consequently compelled to confine her operations to j
qu;et water. The appearance of the .Mem tor, insig- i
tiiGcant in appearance, yet carrying an armament
for the destruction of a citadel, appears tJ bave af
frighted the officers nnd crew of the Rebel tunboat,
whose crew presently deserted her and blew ber up, 1
to prevent her from falling into Federal bands. j
orfolk surrendered through a delegation of its ;
citizens, on the appear nee of the Federal army, and !
thus two leading objects of the war in that section!
are accomplished. The Rebels are now hemmed in
on every tide, although for a brief tune the way lor
retreat a short distance further Southward seems
open to Beauregard, but foreign powers are now set
ting their faces decidedly ngainst the rebellion, so
that but few points of any consequence remain to be
conquered. The war is evidently nearly at an end.
and nothing but American cbstiuacy prolongs it.
Ihe l ontederates have long since abandoned hope,
and are now fighting merely because they hate to give
in, except on compulsion. 5. r. Herald.
