Governor to call out (0,000 man if neoeaaary. It halves

A Nn roaJcDOsTiSST The Constl Uitios of th. Uni

of rebellion and invasion the public eafety may require
it.1 in commenting upon this clauaeof ths Constitution,
Judge Story says i " it is obvious that cases of peculiar
emergency may arise, which may Justify nay, even re
quire the temporary aoapension of any right to tho
Ths DasOLsTiosa or Civil Th m Cum. Accounts
from China state that a party who hare returned from a
visit to some of the dlatrlcta occupied by the rebels, report
that an almost complete desolation prevails. Naukin,
once the magnificent capital of thla empire, la totally de
stroyed, and at the once great city of Chtn-kia-klng all
trade is stopped. In many plaoss nothing ia eeen but mie

alvli war, which baa ravaged that country for the last tf
year, or more.

Character of Gen. Scott.
Tho N. Y. World pays tho following
just and discriminating tribitto to tho mili
tary qualities which characterize tjio vete
ran General-in-Chief of tho United Slates'
forces, who, it will be remembered, has nov-J
er lost battle! " ' r'v
"Our actual Commander-in-Chief, the
Lieutcnaut . General of our AWnJ, though
as bravo as Achlllesis 'its' serene as Aga
memnon and as prudent as Ulysses, from
bis youth he has been a soldier, and a vic
torious one. He has seen more service than
any man under bis command, and was nev
er known to be even disconcerted by dan
ger. A strict disciplinarian, and some
thing of a martinet, it was jocosely said of
him that he would drill a battalion under
fire. Yet General Scott is as chary of men's
lives as a miser is of gold; and so was the
Duke of Wellington. He never moves, if
be can avoid it, until he sees not only that
he can accomplish. a good purpose, but un
til he can accomplish it at the toast possi
ble risk of bis men. ' It is his avowed be
lief that an officer who exposes troops to
needless peril is guilty of a degree of man
slaughter. And be not only thus regards
himsolf as responsible for the lives of the
men under his command, but be looks after
their health and comfort. Ho will not ac
cept regiments unless be can see clearly tbe
means to feed, clothe and shelter them.
Tbe consequence of tbis prudence on bis
part (joined, as it is known to be, with tho
most daring spirit and great military sa
gacity) is that after a little experience, men
tight under him with entire confidence.
They coruo to believe that if ho gives an
order it is not one which wilt expose them
to needless risk, or chances of defeat, if in
battle tbey justify his confidence in their
bravery. Through all the excitement of
the past fow weeks at Washington be has
remained undisturbed. .: The announcement
of tbe approach of twenty, thirty, , fifty
thousand men, be has received with ira
1 perturbable incredulity. He knew bettor. He
knew that Gen. Davis could no more march
fifty thousand men upon Washington than
fifty thousand witches. . Ho knows exactly
what provision is required for the trans
portation of even thousand men five hun
dred miles. He knows when to be alarmed
and when to repose in confidence, when to
repress ardor and when to give it way. . He
knows that it is one of the first duties of a
military leader to restrain and direct bis
own enthusiasm as well as that of tbe men
under bis command. He is prudent. Nay,
be ia prudence incarnate, ana so all other
efficacious qualities attend him."

Slaves are still flocking to Fortress Moo
roe, and a gentleman arrived at Washing
ton, May 30tb, reports that when bs left
450 were at tbe fort, and tbey stated that
general uprising of the slave population
was expected. The owner of 30 at tbe
Fort, from Richmond, bad permission from
General Butler to take bis slaves away if
they were were willing to go with him.
Tbe blacks declined, and the claimant find
ing himself in a bad fix manumitted tbera
and left for Richmond. Many Virginia
slaves are now seeking protection in Penn
sylvania, and none are sent back.
. Letters from Galveston, Texas, affirm
that flour was selling there at (20 par barrel.
One of tho crow of tho stenmsbip Nash
ville left Charleston, 8. C, op Stimdny,
having traveled tho distance by railroad.
Ho brings snroo important information re
garding thd condition of affairs in thathef-t
of traitor and niher rebellious districts.
Ho arrived at Charleston during the bom
bardment of Fort Sumter. '''
The opinion of tho people of Charleston
Is that thuro were several killed and wound
ed in tho bombardment of Fort Sumter.
A rebel officer riding down the beach from
Chnrleston had a horse killed under him bv
a ball from tho Fort. ' Since tho bombard
ment about two thousand men have gone
from Charleston to Virginia, and the rest
remain there garrisoning the forts. "There
are about one hundred and fifty men at
work on Fort Sumter repairing damage,
and the fort is now in a state of repair.-
Tho men in tho forts at Charleston, and
especially Castle Pinckncy, are poorly fed,
and swarm with vermin. . Tbe Charleston
ians are fitting up four privateers a bark,
a brig, and two schooners. ..Tbe brig is an
old slaver that hns been sunk at the mouth
of tho harbor- for several months. : Tbey
express tho opinion that one of . them can
"lick" one hundred . and fifty Yankees, and
the military have a special animosity against
the Sixty-ninlb Regiment and the Zouaves.
Business in Chnrleston Is at a stand-still,
and South Carolina money at a discount of
from ten to fifteen per cent.
A Singular Case of Recovery.
The romance of war is always greater
than that of peace. The soldier who was
accidently shot through the lungs is recov
ering. As soon as tbe accident was known
to his gallant sister in Brooklyn, N. Y., (a
married lady) she posted on here to nurse
him. She attended to him several days
before be was aware of her presence.
When bo recovered consciousness, he said,
with a sigh: "I have a sister, and oh, if she
knew how I am, she would bo at my bed
side r Like a ghost, she appeared ; and
her presence has resurrected him.
There was a thorough perforation of tbe'
body of the soldier by a Minnie bsll.
These gunshots are not necessarily mortal. -Several
cases are reported in medical jour
nals where tho lungs have been punctured
by balls without producing ' death. ...The
bronchial arteries are so abundantly sup
plied with oxygen the healing or therea
putia properties of atmospheric air from
respiration, that hemmorrhage and inflam
mation are both prevented. Wath. Cor,
Green Corn and Bouquet for Gen. Scott.
A late Washington letter says
Gen. Scott has received an ear of green,
corn with the compliments of Jeff. Davis' .
private Secretary. It is a gentle hint, that
the South have still some means of support. .
About tbo time General Scott received this
an olegant bouquet was presented to ,iim, .
with the compliments of Mrs. Lincoln. The
General, with great promptness, requested .
his military Secretary, Colonel Hamilton,
to bear his kindest regards to Mrs. Lincoln ,
for ber beautiful gift, and at tbe same Lima
present her tbe ear of corn, as tbe latest curi
osity surrendered by the enemy, and to add,
that from tbe appearance of the ear, if it
was a fair specimen of ths whole Southern
crop, oar army would b down there soon
enough to gather it for them.
