The Bicbmond papers contain three dis
patches from there.- The first one says
the Yankees are landing on St. James
Island, but every confidence is expressed
in the, ability of General Gist to whip
them. The second says some fighting
had occurred, in which the Yankees were
worsted. Three prisoners were taken,- and
they expected to take two or three more.
But the third dispatch says the Yankees
are landing in force on St. James and
St. John's Islands, under cover of their
boats ; but nothing is said of whipping
or capturing them, from which circum
stance we judge Gen., Gist is about get

other source' ssys the Union troops have

Ike Missouri CoaTemtio em tke light
The Missouri State Convention appears
to be realizing what is necessary to rescue
tbeir State Government from the bands
of traitors. On Tuesdsy, the Convention
passed the bill defining the qualifications
of voters, bv a vote of 42 ayes to 27
The bill prevents all persons engsged in
rebellion since December, 17, 1861,' from
voting at' any State election hereafter;
and it further provides, thst no person
who has engaged at any time in levying
war against the Government, shall here
after hold office. All voters are required
to take an oath to the above effect, and of
future loyalty; and any forfeiture of this
oath will subject the offenders to the pen
aides prescribed in the law concerning
peijnry.- -The bill further provides, that
an osth prospective in its character, bind
ing the parties to future allegiance only,
shall be administered to' the professors
and curators in the State University; to
all bank officers, common school teach'
ers, and common school trustees; to all
officers of incorporated companies in the
State; and to all licensed ministers of tho
gospel. ..- z. s
Although it appears rather inconsistent
in the Convention, to pass such a bill,
and at the same time permit the very
character of persons so legislated sgainst
to occupy seats in the Convention, yet it
may be regarded as an evidence that a
majority of the members are acquiring
backbone,, and have no feats of offending
traitors. The provisions of this bill
might have a salutary effect upon such
ministers ss Brother Baxter end Brother
Hudgcns, and might seriously interfere
with the voting projects of thousands of
partiotic individuals, were it not that a
traitor has' no honor, and can tako and
throw up an oath more easily than an
The vote upon this bill seems to show
who are honest in their professions of
Unionism. It was a test vote, and places
every man just where he belongs. Ex

A Sao Blow. The other day we re
ceived the following startling command,
written in pencil, on a scrap of greasy,
bluish psper, just four inches square, by
actna (measurement :
"Jane 5 1862
Mr Sol Miller Sir Stop your paper 1
dont Wont it any Longer .
J H Jolly"
'With all due deference to Jolly, we
shall nave to decline his polite request,
and continue the publication of. our pa
per for yon see. Jolly, we have several
other subscribers besides yourself, and
they might be disappointed if we should
around obeying the commands of every
thief in the country. But if all our sub
scribers were like Jolly, the psper wonld
have stopped long ago, without any.com;
mands to that effect. The fact is. Jolly
got caught in a bad scrape politely
termed jayhawking, but properly called
stealing. He was taken to St. Joseph,
where, in order to get clear, he acted the
part of the meanest man among mean
men, by turning State's evidence, and
"peaching" on his confederates. His
confession was published,-and we saw
proper to copy it. Because Jolly ac
knowledged himself to be a felon, he gets
woinsii at us, and orders us to " stop our
psper !" We only hope that all other
thieves will follow bis example, if we'are
so unfortunate as to have the names of
any more such on our books. But, Jol
ly, you lorgot one little, unimportant
matter. Yon havo never paid us a red,
and yon acconnt for subscription foots up
83.75, which we should like to feel in
our pocket. When you go over into
Missouri again, to "jaybawk a set of
harues from a Secesh," couldn't you
jayhawk 83.75 to pay us? We are
bound to have onr pay. Jolly, sooner or
later, in some shape or other, and you
may as well fork over at once, and be
done with it. We have a lone memorv.
Jolly, and are a faithful watcher, and
mean to keep a look-out for that little
account. Just 83.75, Jolly.
