' Early in September last, ait. nonry i,anrens
was taken prisoner by the Brit'mb frigate Vsa
t.i nn his war from Coneresa to tbe ooastof
Holland, and ia now epnfined' la the Tower of

"Mi. Keppel, the captain or tba vestal, wst
od a cruise off tha coast of 'America; when be
fall tn with the abio wblch carried Mr. iaa
rear; tba Preslde'nt of tba American Congress.
It was a Dutch vessel, laden' with tobacco aad
bound for Holland." As soon as Mr. Laurens
perceived the English armed boat maka up to
the ressel in which ha was, he threw tho box
that contained, his letters overboard; but tba
lead that waa annexed to it prorlng insufficient
lor sinking It immediately, one oi tna aanng
tars of the Vestal leaped from the boat, and
kent It afloat till the rest assisted him In lifting
It. ' Mr. Laurena waa bound to Holland with a
commission from the Congress, and the tenor
of his business was certainly of snob a nature
mnat hare nroduoed Immense bostiutlos be
tweon England and the 6tatea (Holland), U
this accident bad not Interrened to protect ni
avulnst this further misfortune. , Tba papers
which hare been fonnd in the box above men
tioned, are of the utmost consequence; they
contain an explicit detail of his business wltb
the States, and a full description of bis power
and torn mission were.- some secret ourres
(Kind en ee Is said to ba discovered between tbe
members ol the Congress and certain groat In

Aceordinelv. to tbe Tower he was commit
ted, where bis imprisonment continued, for fif
teen months, and be waa not liberated till after
the conclusion of tbe war. During bis incarcer
ation bia health greatly suffered; be was solac
ed, bowerer, by the kind attentiona of many
friends, among wbom was bdmona uurxe lor,
tbe cause for which Laurens suffered waa one in
which tho noblest minds of Europe could well
afford to aympathixe. Tbe British Gorernmeot
mada freaueut attempts on his patriotism, but
in rain. All ibst they obtained from him was
a petition, modestly expressed, in which be
stated that he had honestly striven to prerent
the final rnLturo between tbe Crown and tbe
colonies. While a prisoner ba learned tbe death
of bis son. John Laurens, slain in a skirmish
near tbe close of tho war. Though bis health
waa broken when be was released, he reoelred
tha commission of Conrreas as one ol ita mln
latere for negotiating tho neace. .. He proceeded
to Paris where (Nor. 30, 1782), with Franklin
and Jay, bo signed tho preliminaries of the
treaty. ... t r
Aa to the consequences of the seizure, the
BritUh Gorernment, so far iron apologising to
the Dutch for seizin Laurena on board a neu
tril ressel, made tbe fact that his dispatches in
dicated a friendly feeling toward we American
Colonies on the part or Holland a pretext lor ae

Tbe city was nearly racated at an early hour
to-day, by tba stampede of our citizens to, tbe

all engaged at an early hour. Tbe only alter
native tbeu leu to idoso wno wera unproviaeu
for ir as to walk orer, and thousands arailed
themselves of this less expensive bnt much more
difficult mode of transporting themselves orer
upon the sacred soil of Virginia. Among those
who hare gona are many of tba ladles of the
leading families in too city, not a lew oi wnom
hare undertaken tbe trip over and back on
horseback. The reriew embraces tbe largest
portion of tho army In Virginia. ','..". . I
The, day, though oloudy, and 'indicating a
storm, has been rery favorable .for tba reriew.
The morning waa rery fine, and tbe President,
with his .Secretaries Nicolay and. Hay, want
orer early. ., The Cabinet members, Assistant
Secretarv Fox. of the Nary, and Assistant Sec
retary Scott, of the War Department, were
early on the more toward tbe Long Bridge,
Tho clerks lo. tba Interior and Treasury De
partments were all granted a holiday, and witb
thonaands of others passed orer into Virginia.
The Commaoder-in Chief of tbe army, with
his staff and bodr guard of two hundred mount
ed and brilliantly uniformed men, arrived at 12
M., and was reoelred by a salute and aalroa by
battery, and by a continuous cheering as he

, General McClellan, soon after, ,bla .-arrival,
waa joined by tbe President and Secretaries
Cameron and Seward, on horseback, wltb wbom
he passed along tha llneev of the rast bodies of

was one of inexpressible grandeur. . Tbe troops
ware in Una trim; guna and uniforms in the tru

oonntenance. , , , -M.t;
The reriew was indescribably grand. Tba
nrogrammeof the review, entirely under Gen

and lasted until nearly five o'olook. . The army
first formed in lines of divisions oa three aldea
of an oblong, and waa then reviewed by' the
President, his Cabinet, and General McClellan
and staff. Afterward tboy denied by divisions

A large nnmber of spectators were- present
at tbe renew, and ttocked to tbe scene in

O" ta one of bis' recent lectures on China

Ward, our lata Minister to China, that ha bad
not heard of him since tbe outbreak of tho re
bellion, but that ba know bim personally, and
believed blm to ba a true ,and loyal American
citizen. Although a citizen of a' disloyal State,
be believed that Mr. Ward was only waiting
till the strong arm of tbe Gorernment CBserted

honor ba nobly Maintained abroad.
