Seven large boxes of paijcra belonging to R.
E. Lee. late of the United States Army, but now
an officer in the rebel camp, wore yesterday
seized in New York by the Deputy United
States Marshal. It is believed that the papers
contain information which will be of value to
the Government, and an examination will at
once be made.
As has been previously avowed, Col. Fremont
is coming home to proffer his services to the
Government. He has been organizing, by let

a diversion into Texas, unless Mr. Cameron as
signs him a post ot duty at some other point.

In the Beyond.
Under the shining sky I stand;
Under the sky, and tiie glory-land;
Gating, I see an anel's wand
I.Ift the clouds from the pure Bey Jnd.
Visions of glory, and faces psle, -Gleam
from beneath the lifted vail.
And sounds of gladness, and whispers fond,
Are borne to my ears from the glad Beyond.
"Oh 1 fear not the coming, the voices say,
"Of Him who opens the gates of day,
Only rejoice, for they never despond,
Who bask In the light of the bright Beyond.
"Rejoice as you pass from your land to this.
Where each flower Is tipped with a glory-kiss;
For darkness fled, and morning dawned,
When we glidedaway to the fair Beyond.
Softly the voices die away,
And darkuess o'erspreads the balls of day.
For the angel, waring agnin his wand.
Shut out tho light of the bright Beyond.
Ever a yearning fills my oul;
A yearning, to reach the destined goal;
And the voices low to the wish respond,
From the mystic realms of the far Beyond.
Angels are waiting for me up there;
Angels of light, with shining hair;
A nd their holy love is a blessed bond
That binds me forever to the pure Beyond.
North Ridge, Sandusky Co., O.
War in Europe.
TheN. V. Tribune, after reviewing carefully
the late European news, says: A great war in
Europe, to clear away existing complication, is
inevitable. It is likely to be the grandest, the
bloodiest that the civilized world has yet seen.
Should the belligerents be France, Great Bri
tain, the Poles, and the Hungarians, pitted
against Austria, Russia, and perhaps the Ger
manic Confederation, it can hardly be closed
without blotting out some existing nations and
creating or reviving others. Should it be com
menced on a smaller scale, it can hardly fail to
extend until all the Great Powers, with possibly
Turkey, Denmark, and Spain, are involved in
the conflagration. It is now as likely to break
out among the ill-governed, discontented princi
palities composing Turkey in Europe, as else
where; it may commence by the march of a
German force into Holstein, followed by the ad
vance of a great French army to the Rhine.
But, wherever begun, the next great war in Eu
rope is not Sat olT, and its results will be felt for
a thousand years.
A Spicy Correspondence.

The State Bank of Ohio.
The Board of Control of the State Bank of
Ohio, has just held its regular semi-annual
meeting. We understand all the old officers
were unanimously re-elected, vix: J. Andrews,
President; l. it. ruin, V ice-fresident; J. J.
The Bank was never in a stronger or more
satisfactory condition than at this time, and
commands universal conhdence.
The Board agreed to take $300,000 of the
State Loan for military purposes, at par, this
sum being the whole of the undisposed part of

The entire German Regiment from Cincinnati

The Government Preparing—Large Orders
for Cannon and Shot.
The Philadelphia North American of tho
22d inst., nays:
"Next week tho Pceuix Iron Company
will commence the manufacture of wrought
iron cannon of largo calibre. The cannon
is tho invention of Mr. Griffin, the superin
tendent of these important works. 1 Tbe roll
erg were made some days ago. The "files"
are already made for the guns ordered for
the batteries to be made for this city, which
will bo rolled, turned and rifled next week.
The guns are very nearly like tbe Arm
strong gun, except that they load at the
the muzzle. Two batteries of six guns
each will be produced instantly. When fin
ished tho gun presents tho appearance of a
stub and twist rifio. Tho "files" Bra to con-
slructed that the fibre of the iron rubs round
the barrel, rendering tho gun impossible to
burst. The guns will be furnished with the
celebrated Holchkiss' shot and shell. The
twelvo pounders will throw a fifteen pound
ball a distance of two and a-balf miles, and,
for either artillery or scige purposes, are a
most formidable weapon. Twelve of these
guns will be made forthwith for the defense
and protection of the city alono; while in
all probability, the resources of the estab
lishment will be much further taxed for the
production of this valuable arm. It is
hardly necessary to add that orders from se-'
cession States are not wanted at present.
"The army contract for shot and shell
has also been awarded to this city lo Messrs.
North, Chase & North. The contract is a
large one, and will require a long time for
its fulfillment. The foundry of the firm is
situated in tho lower part of tbe city. At
all times it furnishes employment to very
many operatives. It will now require a
largely increased force.
The Pittsburg Post describes great gun :
"We visited tho Fort Pitt Foundry.
Knapp, Rudd fc Co., yesterday, where we
saw the great "Union" gun recently cast
there, wnicti is now nearly noished. Its di
mensions are sixteen feet long; forty-three
inches diameter at the butt, twenty-five
inches diameter at tbe muzzle; weight
twenty-six tons. The bore is twelve inches
in diameter and fourteen feet loner. Tbe
gun is rifled for twelve and a-half feet, leav
ing a smooth surface at tho butt of eight
een inches, nine inches cone and nine inch
"I bough shorter and of smaller bore than
the great 'Floyd,' the 'Union' promises to
be even more effective. 'James' patent
ball' will be used. It is of conical shape,
like the mionie rifle ball, wighs above 650
pounds is three feet long, and tbe outside
covered with lead, which, when tbe piece is
fired off, will expand and fill up tbe grooves.
Tbe gun, will, it is expected, project a ball
at least six miles, perhaps seven or eight.
If it reaches the expectation of tbe govern
ment it will certainly be a most destructive
engine of war."
A Southern Idea or Lincoln. Lincoln
keeps five men to guard him by night, and Mrs.
Lincoln two to guard her! Old Abe, in order
to keep his spirits and courage up, pours tha
spirits down, and is half drunk all the time.
For fear of being poisoned, Mrs. Lincoln has
turned cook, and prepares all the food they eat.
Some ministers of tbe gospel recently called to
see him to entreat him to desist from his mad
policy of coercion, when the indignant Abe
cursed them away, swearing that the southerners
should wade knee deep in blood before entering
