Tlie Navy Department has Just received In
telligence from Commodore Farrsgut, of tho
capture of tho Caroline, n vessel fitted out at
Havana and doubtless a rebel pirate. Sho was
captured by tho United States steamer Mont
gomery, Chas. Hunter, commanding, one of
the Mobile blockading vessels, which fell In
with the Caroline and chased her six hours, du
ring which the latter threw ovcrlward many
boxes and bales of merchandise. 8ho showed
English colors after tho Montgomery commen
ced firing nt her, but did not hcive to, until she
had been struck twice by her shot.
The captain, as usual, professed to be l-ound
for Malanzas, but she viiraattontly got out of
her proper course lu a golo of wind, which
blew In Just tho wrong direction to drive her
where she was found some three hundred
miles out of her course. Tho crew, however,
sajs thit she was going Into Mobile that night.
The cartfo has not been examined, as yet, but
tho vessel, doubtless, contains munitions of
war designed for tho rebels. Sho was captured
on tho CSth of October, and was sent north nt
onco for adjudication. Tho vessel was regis
tered as tho English steamer Caroline, hnt
was formerly the American steamer Arizona,
built In Wilmington, Delaware, lu 18T3, and
was 6S2 tons burden. The papers show that
she has 10,500 pounds of saltpetre on board j
and tho captain, after being told that ho should
sent In, acknowledged having arms on lnanl.

Keep cool, Mr. Senator.
All statements alleging disaffection In the
arm, Id consequence of a change in the-command
of the Army of tho Potomac, are pro
nounced by thoso who havo the best means of
knowing, to be without foundation. Soldiers
aro very much like other men, prone to wor
ship the rising sun.
It Is ascertained that the assignment of Burn-
side to the command of tlie Army of the Poto
tomnc Is without limitation. Hence the reports
that any other general will take tho position
aro not well founded; this Is, at least,, the pres
ent state of affairs.
The N UrolDgton Journal, of tbe4ih Instant,
says i Wo learn, by a gentleman Just from Ma
sonliorough Sound, that, early this morning,
tho blockadcrs commenced firing on a large
English brig, supposed to be engaged In run
ning the blockade. The brig was run aahoro off
Marlborough. At about 8 o'clock, the block
adcrs commenced firing ou the Stato Salt

heard In town. Wo do not know the damage
the brig has sustained. She had not I won taken

Dr. Johnson went, Indignantly, to the proros

gation, It proved the notorious JFise efc Allen had
run the nusbana into tuo jail, although ho had
a protection on his person.
Tho provost marshal Instantly sent down
I leutcnant Brcnnan and ten men to procure
the bodies of the Blarespeaceably, If he
could; forcibly. If he must.
The guards on duty refused to obey tho orderj
but tho provost guard having been marched In,
tho Jail guards, seeing that resistance was use
less, succumbed, and the two fugitives were
brought down and dellrercd over under pro
test. Tho mother was restored to her children and
tho husband placed under the protection of the
bayonets of tho United States, at tho Patent Of
fice hospital. It is about tlmo tho Infernal
business of negro-catching were stopped In this
city. There Is too much of tho free and Intelli
gent Northern clement now Inhabiting tho city,
to allow the disgrace much longer. Yet it
never can be stopped while theso these villains
can pursue their nefarious calling under color
of the fugitive slave law . Let that law he abol
ished and then abolish all officers of the law,
who favor such outrageous proceedings as the
kidnapping of free people, an I wo shall be a
free city In truth. In the nnmoof humanity,
wo thank Gen. Wads worth and Col. Dostcr for
what they have done In this and similar cases,

reason for continuing In existence.

Benefit or Dr. James L. Tiuteb. To
morrow (Thursday) evening, our amiable
young friend, Dr. James L. Thayer, Is to re
ceive a complimentary benefit from lho hands
or a numner or jus personal aumirers anu ac
quaintances, many of whom ho has made since
his sojourn In tho metropolis. The Doctor Is
an unassuming, well-bearing, high-toned gen
tleman, whoso originality Is only surpassed by
his chasteness, both In public and private asso
ciations, He never sacrifices the feelings of
any party, sex, or people, by making unpleas
ant allusions. He docs not attempt to talk on
subjects that ho does not understand, neither
does ho volunteer to tell the people what politi
cal course to pursue. Ho fills the mission laid
out for the one who follows that department In
tho profession he has chosen, namelyi ho
amuses his auditors. Wo hope to see the CreJ
morne Circus well filled on Thursday night.
Robber Arrested. The notorious burglar,
Charles Harvey, who was arrested a few days
slnco on tho charge of entering the room of
Miss Isabel Cubas. at the National hotel, was
brought up for examination yesterday, before
Justlco Donn. There were several witnesses
examined, and It was clearly proven that Har
vey's Intentions were to commit a robbery. He
was ordered to glvo bonds In tho sum of one
thousand dotlars for his appearance at court,
which ho fulled to do. and was committed to
Jail. Tho servant girl deserves much praise for
securing tuts notorious tuiei, ana wo nope wis
case may bo of somo benefit to all others who
may ne placed in like circumstances.
