is a great adept in sleight of hand, jugglery and
every species of legerdemain. After several
years experience in the above business, Hen
Seriui has come to the conclusion that it is his
duty to serve his country for the defense of the
Stars and Stripes. He has enlisted for the war,
and this will be his parting benefit. Go every
body; admittance but one dime.
DO YOU WANT THE NEWS!
We ask the question and leave it with our
friends for decision.
Since the attack on Fort Sumter by the South
Carolina rebels, we have daily excepting Sun
day, published full telegraphic reports and had
them ready for delilery by six o'clock in the
morning. For one month the publication was
in the form of an "extra," and was freely given
away to whoever wanted, and we in return ac
cepted whatever our friends chose to contribute.
At the close of one month we discontiuued
the "extra" and commenced the issue of the
Daily Journal, the first month of which closed
on Saturday last. We continued to publish the
telegraphic reports at the earnest solicitation of
people both in the town and country, upon what
we thought good assurances of a small remuner-
tion. How far that has been realized the follow
ing will show:

type aettlng for four weeks ending June 8 ......$07 60

In addition to this $2 36 against the Daily,
we have the work of our foreman aud ouraelf
five hours each night which is not charged in
the account worth at the lowest calculation
The Daily Journal willbe priuted this week,
and unless the subscriptions come in sufficient
to warrant its continuance at least to pay its
expenses it will be discontinued.
The coming month we think will be one in
which will be announced some of the grandest
military movements tho world ever witnessed,
All intelligence from the seat of war betokens
this opinion. Great and decisive acts will take
place, upon which the future of this mighty gov
ernmeiit depends. Those who would be posted
in these stirring events as they happen should
take the paper.
We should be pleased to continue its publics
tion but cannot at such a loss.
We ask our friends to make au extra effort in
our behalf during the present week and send us
the result of their labors by Saturday. If the
Daily is discontinued all money paid in ad
vance will be refunded.
The Louisville Democrat, though a strong
Democratic paper, is honest enough to deny
that the Republicans either began the war, or
rendered it necessary, it some ol the North
ern Democratic organs would imitate its con
duct it would elevate them somewhat in pub
More Secession Outrage in Tennessee.
The Louisville (Ky.) Journal observes.
Wo liavo spoken of the notice, given by
the secessionists of Brownsville, Teun., to
the Rev. Edward Cooper and othor citizens
of Northern nud foreign birth, allowing
them ten days to depart, and apprising
them, that after tho 3d of June, those re
maining would not bo allowed to go but re
quired to participate in the support of tho
Mr. Cooper and a considerable number of
others left within the ten days, though Mr.
C. snys that strong signs were exhibited of
a disposition to detain him by force. A few
lingered behind because they could not
leavo within tho prescribed time without
too great a sacrifice, or because they had
not Hie money to make a journey.
A very respectable man is now in this
city who, beiog compolled to collect for his
trip some monoy due him, could not leavo
lill tho evening of tho 3d. Ho t!;e! went
to the railroad to take passage, but, sooing
two or thrco others, who were id tho same
situation as himself, dragged from the cars,
ho remained quiotly till alter dark, And then
quitting tho village secretly, walked all the
way to Humboldt, a distance of thirty or
Ihirty-bvo miles, as the only means of ma
king his escape.
What a deep and burning shame it is,
that, in a civilized State, such an embargo
upon human beings should be laid and per
mitted. But the secession papers of Ken
tucky, with hundreds of facts of this chsrac
tor before them, tell us that all is right in
Tennessee ; that "ihero is no intimidation in
that State and will bo none.
England and Franco Must Stand by the
From the London Herald (Derbyite.)
The Governments of France and Great
Britain are scarcely likely to differ on tho
policy to be adoptod in tho present crisis,
and it is not improbable that this question
has already been discussed by the two Cab
inets. The Emperor Napoleon resided for
some time in the United States, and is ful
ly compotent to judge of the relative
strength ot the rival sections; and when M.
Thouvonel declared that the maintenance of
the Uuion is necessary for the interests of
I'rance, be doubtloss spoke the sentiments
of his roaster. The Emperor Napoleon is
opposed to a disruption of the Union, and
it is rumored that ho has even gone so far
as to otfer aid to President Lincoln against
tuo soceders. we have no means of ascer
taining what are the intentions of our. own
Govern moot, or the opinion of any states
men iu the Cabinet; but we do not believe
it will conduce to the welfare of Great Bri
tain for the two powers to be at issue on
this American question.
Cabsius M. Clay's Letter. We have
good reason to believe that the publication
by Cassius M. Clay of a lettoron the sub
ject of our foreign relations not only fails
to be approved by the Administration, but
it is in insubordination to the law of 1856,
which expressly forbids any such publio
communication from a diplomatio or con
sular officer. Wash. cor. of the N. Y. Tri
bune. Henry T. Dixon is appointed collector of Al-
exandria. He was the only Republican voter in
', Ya., last fall.
Mrs. Partington says there is not enough of
the Spirit of '76 left in the South, to fill a fluid
Europe and America.
The Paris correspondent of tho Newark
Daily Advertiser snys:
"In a I Hie letier I mentioned Hint the
French government had determined to in
crease ils squadron in the American waters.
Tho fact is officially confirmed by tho Mon-
iteur of this morning, winch announces that
tho trench naval station of tho Antilles
hasroceived a reinforcement of four war ves-,
sols, under the command cf Rear-Admiral
Reytmiid, and that ti:e Antilles station is
hereafter to includo North America. 'In
presence of tho events which arritnte and
divide the States of the American Union,
snys the rrench official journal, 'tho Emi
pcror has resolved to send forces into tboso
waters, sufficient to protect French inter
ests and insure respect to them.'
" I was yesterday shown a private letter,
from Frankfort, containing the statement
that a regiment of volunteers is being or
ganized in Germany, whose services are to
u-3 offered to the government of tho United
States. Meantime, seyial of the French'
officers who recently applied to the TJ. 8,
legation in Paris, and were informed that
the Minister had no authority to accept
their services, have determined to leavo for
America, and trust to chance for employ
ment when they arrive at their destination.
I conversed yesterday with an officer who
followed Garibaldi throughout tho Sicilian
and Neapoliton campaign, and who inform
ed me that he had taken passage for New
York in one of the steamers from Liver
pool next week.
"Our latest journals from Madrid con
tain accounts of a grand farewell dinner,
given by the French Ambassador, in honor
of the Hon. William Preston, of Kentucky,
Minister of the United States to the Court
of Spain, who was on the point of return
ing to America. Forty guests were pres
ent, including several members of the Span
ish Cabinet and tho eorpt diplomatique.
Mr. Preston is universally liked at Madrid,
and much regret is expressed at his departure."
The Strength of Fortress Monroe.
It is by no means surprising that Ex
Gov. Wise should have expressed himself
in very strong terms as to tbe importance
to the State of Virginia of attacking Fort
ress Monroe. The work is truly one of ira
menso strength. . It would be impossible
for 60,000 Secessionists to take it from
Gen. Butler. As long as ships can bring
him men, provisions and munitions of war,
he will be impregnable.
Fortress Monroe is situated very differ
ently from Forts Sumter and Pickens. , It
cannot be surrounded while a competent
garrison is within its walls. It cannot be
reduced by a fleet while a sufficient naval
force is off this coast. It cannot be injured
by flotillas from the interior rivers as long
as tbe guns are all well manned and it
magazines supplied. Its water battery is
able to demolish any flotilla of that de
scription which could pass before its guns.
Along the beach it commands a range of
miles, where the columbiads and rifled can
non would soon prevent any approach in
that direction. It will be impossible for
assailants to set the garrison on fire, and if
they should do so, the area is so great their
burning would sot smoke out tbe combat
ants. The casemates are to large and well
ventilated that they will allow the most
constant firing without danger of suffoc.
