It is stated that Captain Waddell and
his ship, the Shenandoah, have boen
purchased by (he Fenians. She is now
doing business under the Irish flag, and
depredating upon British commerce.
We have chaugcd.'ouropinion about this
vessel, and now think her commander
a noble admiral, and his ship a magnifi
cent man-of-war. We trust she will
illuminate the teas with Britisli ships in
flames. There, is something like poetic i
justice about this Fenian movement thai I
is very pleasant to an American. Circum
stances alter casoe. " England cannot
put this rebellion down; no, never!"
"A heroic and gallant people like the
Irish can never be subjugated." "The
hirelings of Queen Victoria cannot suc
cessfully contend in battle against the
young chivalry of Ireland, fighting for
the independence of their native land,
defending their homes and firesides."
Dost thou like the picture, Johnny,
dear ?
They jest at scars who never felt a
wound. The Boston Transcript is poking
fun at the. English, because they are
afraid of the invincible Fenians. Th
British fright is legitimate. Tho saru
journal ironically suggests that "Mr
Sewfud is pondering on the propriety o
conceding 'belligerent rights' to th
Green Is.'c." All this is trifling with
great causo and a great people. W
trust that President Johnson will cliret
Mr. Seward to pause pondering fort!
with, and send out a manifesto by Sat
urdny's packet, stating clearly tha
America recognizes the Irish as a bell
gerent race. There is nothing in the
law of nations to forbid that, and if
there was, it would not be constitutional.
They arc entitled to this recognition.
But for a division of opinion in our cdi- I
torial department, tec should insist upon I
the government going still further, and, I
in the aptlit of reciprocity with British j
feelings iv regard to the South, acknow
ledge Irish independence now. What
are we afraid of? We have full faith I'
in the Fenians. We are Fenians; and I
there being no reason why Fenians ■
should not be free, we go for the freedom i
of tho Fenians. It will be seen that we I
take "strong ground"upon this subject; {
but this is natural in men who have been '
trained to arms anil who appreciate the
blessings of liberty. We hope the State »
conventions will take this great ques- '
tion of Fenlanism up, and make it a !
slab in respective platforms. 1 1

present month is, unfortunately for tin
I iter, but fortunately for the consumer
is highly favored, the talismanic am
jalistic letter standing very promt
ntly at the termination of the won
piember. It is shrewdly sutpeotec
at Augustus Cicsnr was very partial ti
sters, and in fact we are not left nuicl
am for speculation on that soore, fol
Horace, his poet laureate, bas v great
deal to way in their praise, and wee fond
of making an occasional visit to the
coast to take half a dozen raw on the
shell. Augustus, therefore, in order to
bring them earlier "in season," con
cluded not lo make any change in (he
nomenclature of the months following
that in which he immortalized and
eternized his own name. Hence,
thanks to the greatest of Roman Em
perors, we are permitted in Norfolk
to eat oysters In September; and our
people, to judge from the eagerness with
which they enter upon the work, .seem
to be really grateful for the favor. It
may be that during the warm and swel
tering months of summer, in which the
letter "II" does not appear, the oysters
are rather lean, and, being engaged in
tlie necessary work of Increasing and
multiplying their numbers, are, like
oilier species of animated nature, very
unsubstantial and unsavory food, and
only fatten up at the approach of cold
weather, when they become fit foi
general consumption, can be used with
out risk to health, and are palateable
the epicurean taste. Re this as it ma
they are very abundant in Norfolk, a
la good condition and cheap. Our pop
1.-ition could live oi. them, were itn
that their constant use gives to ilie co
tamer • sort of "ancient and fish li
smell," that is anything but agreeal
at all times. There is one interest!
matter in this connection, which miv
lie turned to good account. What is
hinder Norfolk from becoming a nn
Important mart for the oyster trat
than Baltimore? The oysters can
obtained, opened, canned, and sent
market much cheaper and more adva
tageously than in that city ; and
I large and profitable business could vei
soon be established, which would gi\
work to thousands qf idle people, em
ploy an immense amount of capital in
an active and paying business, and ai
much to our wealth, population, and ii
portance. The entire country sout
and west of Norfolk could be supplii
with oysters of a better quality anil
cheaper rates than Haiti more can ft
nish them. Wo think this is a mult
worthy of more than passing consider
lion, and trust that some one acquaints
with the extent of the oyster traflle
Chesapeake Hay, will institute iuquiri
into the feasibility of the propositi!,
and suggest sonje means of immediate
carrying it into operation. We had be
ter have an "oyster towii" than no tow

keep the old place from going dow
even If we have to open oysters for all
ing. With the establishment ofoyste
packinghouses, other branches of bus
ness would be necessarily called into a
tive life, and we should have a large ii
crease to our rent-paying, tax-paying
and food-consuming population at one
We were led to these reflections by reat

for the New York Tribune ! He is de
scribing the dawning of "The Fashion
Day," and lets fly in this style :
" Splendid August, poppy-crowned,
kissed the eyelids of the cool September,
and stole his sceptre while he lay supine
in her sultry and slumberous presence.
" In the fields, when the late corn ri
pens, and the grapes Mtill (ill their purple
chalice with the sunbeams, these days
are the crowning Rift of lavish Nature.
Among the hills they keep their shining
procession, mutely wondering at the ab
sence of the lovely urban visitors who
fled as summer waned, antl thereby
missed their beauty. Over the beaches
they pass with noiseless feet, for the
echo of the summer's mad gaiety is in
their ears, and the endless melancholy
of the ocean. Yet, from their purple
presence a glory streams over sea and i
land, such as the vanished season knew
not in her prime."
Mr. Greeley, who sometimes writes
poetry, and lectures on poets, must have
written what follows:

Norfolk.—The Lynchburg Virgin
ian, says of Norfolk, very truly :
This ought to become tlie grreat ship
ping port or the (South. Willi its mag
nificent harbor, its fine inland commu
nication by buys, rivers, oanah) and rail
roads, it possesses advantages which, if
properly improved, would make it
second only to New York as a commer
cial and maritime centre. There is no
reason why it should not do the groat
bulk of shipping of the .Southern States
—on the contrary every motive of inter
est and i.f pride dictates that the capital
and energy of the South should be di
rected towards building up Norfolk ns
the exporting anil inip,.rtiiig harbor for
Southern trade, In Septa of waters, in
facility of approaoh from sea, antl In ac
cessibility from the interior it is unri
valled by any other seaport on our coast.
Nature lias dowered ft munificently ;
and human enterprise can convert that
ilowery into one of splendid wealth and
prosperity. We merely throw out these
hints now, Intending to develop them
more fully in future,
Colonel Thomas, Assistant Commis
sioner of the llureau of Refugees, Freed
nien and Abandoned Lands for Missis
sippi and a part of Louisiana, has made
a report, dated on the lltli Inst. Sixty
six thousand acres of abandoned hind,
subdivided into two hundred and lifty
one plantations, have been leased by the
llureau in his Department. Of these
there have been leased to whites one
hundred and seventy plantations, com
prising about fifty-three thousand acres,
|"d to negroes eighty one plantations,
.ver thirteen thousand acres. Near
the whole of tin's property belongs to
zeiis who wijl resume their rights to
ti January next, in accordance with
ireular recently Issued by General
ward, the Commissioner in Wash
ton. As yet none of it has been li
led for confiscation. Lour thousand
i hundred and seventy-eiirjit negroes
receiving government aid, and two
usaud Whiles arc living on goverti
iit rations. Colonel Thomas says the
I'eau is constantly growing in useful
s in his Department, and so for, there
been but little trouble between the
idiuen and their employers ; but he
irehends serious evils from the organ
isation of the Mississippi State militia
and the withdrawal of the national
A Blohmond paper speaks of some of
the best friends of the South iv the
North as Abolition ghouls. Ghoul is a
pleasant phrase, and brings back the
good times of the Davis dominion. In
return for this and other "healthy indi
cations of Southern loyalty," we advise
our "ghoul" friends to send an Ameri
