The last intelligence broug&t by the telegraph
of this unfortunate gentleman, and tho last per
haps wo shall ever hear, is that ho is a prisoner
uudcr a lettr* de cachet from the President of the
United States. He bas assigned Mr. YALLAXDIO
H AM, for life perhaps, to a Bastido on tho Tortu
We hare watched the progrecs of th:*cuso with
no ordinary intorcst, both on account of the in
dividual arrested, and the time of the arrest. Mr.
V. is the most distinguished member of tae Demo
cratic party in the U. S., und is oue of the few
men possessed of honesty and courage suffioient
to beard tho Lion in his den ; to oppose openly,'at
the hazard of his life and liberty, the foul and
gloomy despotism that W overshadowing his land.
Knowing that these midnight arrests, hy an
armed soldiery, of froe citizens, was ono of the
causes of the french revolution of 1793 ; know
ing that the Democrats, of whom Mr. V. is leader,
are now tho dominant party in the U S., it was
supposed by many that the Government at Wash
ington would not have the daring again to mike
theil? UwJeaa arrest.* of .prominent citizens. Wo
confers to a H?gering doubt on tb is point oursevles,
but Mr. VALLANDICHAM'S caso leaves not a loop
to hung a doubt upon.
It is now patent that Mr. Lincoln's power In the
U. is simply' unlimited. He bes " a hoart de
void ot social duty and fatally bentupon mischief,"
aud his power is commensurate with his malignity
ana depravity. Henceforth he may justly be
j regarded as t. dangerous man, and being our ene
J my, wu must bewaro of him. It will bo a ques
I tion of curious sp?culation with future hUtuiiaun
that this man, when beaten hy the Democratic
party in 1S61, gained in a few weeks as ubsolute
power over that party as he ever had over his
own, and ruled them with a whip of scorpions.
? I The proper understanding of a single feet how
] ever, will unveil all tho mystery that surrounds
this subject. When the Congress of the U. 6.
gave Mr. Lincoln unlimited control of the sword
I I and purse, all those fearful consequences might
have easily been foreseen. It has boen no secret
?Ince the days of Sir Robert Walpole* that every
msn had his prioa. Mr. Liuooln bad low cuuning
enough soon to find out the price cf the leaders
of the Democratic party ; or if this wu? H work
beyond his original intellect, his man Friday,
Wm. Seward, was quite competent to instruct him
in any department of the school of iniquity.

The lesson taught us by these ovents ls plain,

Mr. Lincoln's gold has quite enlightened the
I m iud? of the leaders of the Democratic party,
! and so long a? tljut mea bolds the sceptre in Wash

of the liquors und ingredients required in making

This new outburst of the war is iu m?r y re
spects unaccountable, for tho Yankees have gained
no new victorien end ar? no nearer conquering the
South than after the first battle of Mantissas. A
combination of circumstance* perhaps ha* enabled
the demagogues and newspapers to delude the
mob once more. The refusal of England to in
terfere with the blockade ; the ann-unccmeut of
the French Miniatur thal hereafter Fiance world
leave us alone to fight out our differences ; the
fall in the price of gold, and the vain delush a
that the South io on the point of starvation, h.. ve
probably all cundnced to thu belief that the Yan
kee ?Ur is about to he in the ascendant.
Account for it as we may, the fact is apparent,
that the peace movement is dead or sleeping.
We ere to have another bloody campaign
this summer; fierce and furious battle* a:
Vicksburg, on the Rappabanncck, in Tennossto
perhaps at Charleston. The Yanko? Cont/cript
law will not moot with the opposition which has
beer, predicted. Tho agents of Abraham Lincoln
may not uttempt to enforce it in the great cities, bc*
ia the rural districts it will, in all probability, be
rigidly enforced. By this moans tho Yankees ex
pect to heavily roinforce their armies. They be
lieve on the other hand that oar Conscription ha?
drained the Confederacy of tho la*t available
sol di er: C .?
Expectations of foreien interference must be
totally abandoned by us at present. It is evident
that tho French Emperor has determined te wait
some timo longer before be will again offer to
mediate. The Engli?h papers nay tbttt the worst
of the Lancashire troubles are over. The-Mexican
w.sr is falling heavily upon the French exchequer,
and is engrossing the attention of the public mind
in France, while the Polish rebellion, strange to
say, is creating more interest and excitement
throughout Europo than the mighty' war raging
on the American Continent.
Wo must conquer with tho sword. Great vic
tories by Lan and JOHNSTON and BBACKKGAHD
this summer will alone acbievo peace. We must
not lean on tho hope ot European mediation ; this
hope is a reed which will break and pierce our
hand. Nor must we lean en the hope of a peace I
movement at the North. We underrate our Yan
kee foes if we supposo they have nouo of tbe dog
gedness and obstinacy of their Anglo-Saxon an
cestors. They will try again and again, and muet
be again and again beaten and driven hack. We
can heat them this summor as easily aa we beat
them last summer. When this campaign is over,
and they are as fur from obtaining their ends as
ever, it will bc for them to determino whether it
will bo worth while to beat their brains out against
the rocks again. The same malignity which has
urgod them to hhod so much blood, will continue
to push them to furthor excesses. Let no man
then liston to thc sjren song of pon o, or cheri-h
j a hope which may breed apathy. We would not
I make the fond mother believe tho will yet he dc
J luytd the bliss of clasping her noble soldier boy
j tu her heart, if we did not think all promises to

moro red fields, more prayers for thc beloved,
more vain and bitter longings for the unrctumicg

Such was.the destitution lo which they were

maimed or diseased for life in consequence ot
the hardships to which they'were subjected.
AVfcen captured, they were unm^tc'lully
p'undered of everything they hod, except the
garments which happened *o be upon their
parsons. They were crowded into small
boat? KO closely, thal less than two square
feet of the tioor was allowed ea h man ; and
they were intermingled intentionally with
cas?s of small pox, sent up from the Yankee
army to their hospitals above. Several hun

On arriving at Memphis, a largo nuraherof
the prisoners found friends iu citizens, ol' the
towo, who generously supplied them with
money, blankets and other necessaries of com
fort. These were brutally tont from them to
a man, and they were compelled in this des
titution to.make the journey, at the coldest
se-tson ot' the year, up the river to Cincinnati.
During this journey, and up to the time ot
their departure from the prison, they were
successively robbed of every article of the
least value ab'uit their persona, and finally
uf every particle of clothing not necessary to
conceal nakedness. If, for instance, they
had on a shirt and an uudsrsbirt, they wer?
forced to divest themselves of the fo-mer, anil

of their captivity, without a change, livery

which they MifTered, thus naked, during a se

Some of the facts of the subject have beer
submitted by our offices to the Washington
authorities, and enquiry made whether tbt-?
were authorized" hy that government. Tot
answer has been in the last degree instil tine
to the South. It u denied that these cruel
lies have been inflicted by order, but it W not
denied that the government wns informed ol
them. On the contrary, it imp ted by admit?
its recognizance of them, and jus'ilies them
on tbe ground that they were practised in rn
taliation for cruelties alleged to be suffered

pie'ended retaliation, through declared to la?
unauthorized, is admitted to be winked at bj
the Washington authorities.
It reumin" to be seen wiiat action our gov
