Nothing in the whole progress of tho
war, to our unmilitary appreheusioii
equals the reduction of this rebel strong
hold. To understand the full magnitude
of the achievement it is necessary to
know the geographical, situation. Tie
Jlistiusippi here makes a bend nearly in
the form of a horse-bhoe, or rather a
mule shoe. The Island is near the toe
of the shoe, but a little lower down the
river. ., . . "
' The diatancc across the heel of the
sboo is twelve miles. .Inst below the
bend on the Mississippi side ot (lie l iver
is the city of New Madrid. Tho first
movement was to capture this latter place.
The Island itself had been selected by
Ileauregard ns a point capable of so being
defended as to obstruct completely the
navigation of the river and to be impreg
nable against any attack. The Island
had been fortified by the skill of Gen'I
John Y. McCown, a native of Sevier
county in this State, and like rcaurcgard)
Bnckner, lhagg, Tolk, filghman and
Johnston, educated at the expense of the
The attack was commenced nearly four
Tope and the flotilla, consisting of gun
boats and mortar boats, under Commo
dore Foote. A bombardment was begun
by the fleet and kept up at the rate of
some few shots per hour for nearly three
weeks, and without any marked results.
Secesh was in ecstacy. As usual they
fed themselves on all sorts of reports.
Gunboats were destroyed, troops were
captured, our batteries were shelled, and
all manner of misfortunes befel us.
In the meantime Gen. Pope was con
triving to get below (he Island without
passing the fire of the rebel batteries.
Tor this purpose the idea w as conceived
of cutting a canal across the heel of .the
horse shoe capacious enough for tho pas
sage of steamboats. The operation is
thus described by Gen. l'oi'E in his ofli
'The canal acrot-s the peninsuU opposite

With such extraordinary success is it
wonderful that Secesh is defeated?
On the 9th of .September last, Messrs.
I!. C. FosTKIt, 'Nkim, S. BROWN, J. E.
Hails v, and W. G. Hahuiso, telegraphed
to "lion. Jr.Fi-Knso Davis, IVesident,
oVc,'' as follows :
. "Padm-ah is in possession of tho enemy.
Our Governor is absent and no Confeder
ate officer here. Howling Green could be
reached in twenty-four hours by twenty-live
hundred infantry, one battery of
artillery, and one battalion of cavalry.
What shall be done ?" ,
Howling Green was reached, so was
Columbus on the west. Cumberland Gap
on the east had been held for monhts.
Simultaneously was Kentucky invaded
at. those three -points, Columbu?, on the
Mississippi, under IVu.k ; from Howling
Green towards Louisville, under Buck
nek; from Cumberland Gap, towards
Lexington, under Zot.ucofkkb. Secesh
was about to change its tactics from de
fensive to aggressive warfare. And Ken
tucky, full of traitors, was selected 89
tho field ot operations. Unlucky day
for Secesh! Ketfer have staid at homo
and met the vandals there! In every
encounter lov.n to the smallest skirmish
secesh was second best. True, there was
some crowing, but always at a safe dis
tance. At Barboursville, at Wildcat, at Tike
ton, at Waverly; at Pound Gap, at Mill
Spring (Fishing Creek) there was the
same catrastrophe ; humiliating, disas
trous defeats. And how about Bowling
Green? It was occupied, they said, by
from 00,000 to 80,000 troops first and last,
from, -1,000 to 0,000 of whom died there
and were buried, sometimes as many as
fifty a day in undistinguished masses.
They toiled like slaves at the severest
and tho most painful labor in piling up
immense fortifications then runaway
from them like scared sheep, without
firing a gun or waiting for an attack.
At Columbus the same thing was reflected
only on a larger scala and with even less
display. All honor to noble, loyal Ken
tucky, for the manner in which she wel-
corned to her hospitable soil the hosts of
The Philadelphia Press says that among
the cheering signs of tho times is the an
nouncement that more than two millions
of dollars were received from customs
last week. Thus, in the midst of war,
commerce remains not only in an unin
terrupted but in a flourishing conditiou.

exploded by the receipts, referred to
above at n time when trade vuih most of

enormous list of weekly exports from
New York and other Northern ports. It
would be curious to see a statement of
the receipts of the ' Southern Confeder
acy" from the secession tariM' that was
ostentatiously established some inoiilhs
ago. It is doubtful whether a single
rebel custom-house has collected enough
to pay the espouses of sustaining it '

One bf the results of tho present re
bellion will Lo a national currency. It
was ascertained that to. meet tho im
mense disbursements of the ' Govern
ment, there was not gold and silver
coin enough ia the country. Hence the
necessity of adopting some other repre
sentation of value, in other words some
form of paper money. The choice lay
between the issues of a national bank,
the issues of the local banks of the
country and notes or bills based on tho
credit of the United States. We all
remember the old contest between the
Whig and Democratic parlies about a
National Bank. This was no time to
renew it. As to the local banks, many
we know arc unworthy of credit. And
who was to decide anions: them and
make the selection? We have not for
gotten what befel tho "pet banks," a)
they were called. Treasury notes give
the country a currency, uniform and cir
culating in every part of it, thus accom
pllshing for the people one of tho chief
benefits claimed for the old Bank of the
United States, and at the same time are
not liable to the main objection urged
against thj institution givinj lot few
men the power lo contract or expand
the amount of tho general circulation.
The amount issued is fixed by law, and
cannot be increased; neither can it be
diminished, except by the action of the
holders, who may return them to the
treasury for stocks of the United States,
bearing six per cent, interest, payable in
coin. They are thus liable to be issiied.
The faith of the Government is pledged
for their redemption, and a sounder cur
rency could not bo conceived by those,
who have confidence in its perpetuity.
Henceforth exchanges in the moneys of
different parts of the country will be
nominal the cost of transmitting Trea
Cotton IMautiuK lit India.
Mr. Harwood, an agent sent out from
England to examine into the cultivation
of cotton in India, has recently publish
ed a report of his extended observation's
in that peninsula. He has conversed
with tho peasants in most of the cotton
growing districts, and states that they
are eager for American seed to improve
the system of cultivation, and (b obtain
the handsome prolits likely to accrue
from it. He expresses his linn belief
that they stand ready to supply Europe
with all the cotton that may bo wanted,
excepting perhaps the finest qualities;
and that as soon a3they can be properly
set to work upon the task. But to induce
them to commence large advance must be
made upon tlte expected crops ; or rather
these must be paid for before they arc
gathered from the fields. That the
funds required will be furnished in
abundance the present season there is not
fhe. sliskfost reason to doubt,

Kvcry one. at all familiar is aware that
in alt largo cifies j:rt-at numbers of chil
dren are habitually raised to crime,
from infancy they are sedulously taught
tho arts of thel'l, pocket-picking, lock
picking, house-breaking, and mendicancy
byillains who profit by their practice,
ot unfreijueiijly parents employ their
own hihlrp n for their nefarious purposes.
It is not surprising that tie great ina
jorily of criminals are comparatively
yonn. It is rare that they attain even
middle life. This class of oll'eiiders has
given rise to various excellent reforma
tory institutions, established by law, into
which llier r'Hli thieves ir" placed,
and by a course of discipline, at oin-c

most sweeping practical slave emancipa

emancipation but tamely expresses the

plies a gradual process, while abolition
is the actual effect of the' war.. - It says:
