Any Englishman who desires to
learn what extent of brutal bullying
may be tolerated and encouraged in a
moment of national passion, can do
nothing better than to read over, in a
calm moment, the leading cpJumris of
of the Times and the Mornint} Post,
for the past three or four weeks. W
think with shame, as English journal
ists, of the manner in which, day after
day, these two English newspapers
have been slandering, taunting, in
sulting the government and the people
of the United States. No*language
more foul and bitter could have been
employed by either journal if the very
name of American had been the ac
knowledged synonym of all that is
base, false and cowardly. People talk
here of the New York Herald in terms
of just contempt and detestation.
When has the New York Herald
written anything so coarse, so slander
ous, so vulgar, so false as the Times
and the Moruing Post have written of
the American Government and the
people day after day during the reeent
crisis, with a systematic infamy of lan
guage and baseness of purpose
Had all this been done to intimidate
the Federal Government, to force it
into yielding to our demand, it would
have been sufficiently mean and cow
ardly, but not, perhaps, wholly inex
cusable. It might have aeemed a sort
of brutal extravagance of zeal on be-gone
half of our national interest. But it
had not this excuse. It was not done
to induce the Americans to concede.
It was done with the deliberate pur
pose of goading on the proud and sen-over
sative people of the Northern States
into some passionate defiance of Eng
land, in order that England, being the
stronger, might crush and trample her
free offspring. All that the Times
and Morning Post could do by taunts,
by jeers, by vulgar insult of every
kind, was exhausted in tho effort-*)
provoke the North into a vehement
refusal. It was the hope and the ef
fort of those journals that at the very
least the Federal Government might
be forced into a collision with the peo
ple ot the United States, and the prin
ciple of Democracy be thus endanger

We, with pretty much all the rest

of the Nineteeth Indiana Hegiment

found guilty and sentenced to be shot.
That he was led forth to execution,
was blindfolded—twenty men stepped
forward with guns presented—the word

word nYe" a reprieve" was shouted
and the execution stayed. The ban

I N ©"FF O A S I
The Hartford (Conn.) Press relates
how the opening of the artificial chan
nel known as "Wall's Cut," by means
of which our gunboats were enabled
to pass into Savannah river, between
Fort Pulaski and Savannah, was ac
complished. The Press receives the
fact from a participant
"Wall's Cut, one of the inland pas
sages to Savannah, was obstructed by
the rebels when our forces took Port
Royal, by the sinking of a brig, and
driving three rows of piles across the
passage. The delicacy of the opera
tion of removing the obstructions can
be imagined when we state that the
place was so far within the enemy's
lines that tfiey left it entirely uuguard
edr thinking .that our troops would
have neitfier the "temerity to approach
the channel, nor the ingenuity to re
move the obstructions.
But they did not know the Yankee
daring and skill. Sometime before the
middle of January, the three compa
nies of the Connecticut Seventh that
were left on Hilton Head were sent
down to the lower end of Danfnskie
Island to act as guard to a party of en
gineers who were to attempt to open
Wall's Cut. From the house, which
formed the headquarters of the party,
Savannah was plainly visible, at a dis
tance of eight miles, across the marsh
es and bayous. The line of the river
could also be traced, and the men seen
on the decks of the black little steam
ers that plied between Savannah and
Fort Pulaski, the port holes of which
could be counted.
During the daytime the party kept
concealed. At night strong guards of
soldiers were placed at favorable points
of observation, and the engineers with
muffled oars and hammers, silently
worked till daybreak. This was con
tinued five successive nights before the
work was accomplished. But the
piles were all removed and the old
sunken hulk moved to a position which
renders the passage of the gunboats
easy. So unsuspicious were the enemy
all this time, that our pickets captured
two innocent duck-shooters, who sup
posed they were rowing in rebel wa
ters. It is one of the cteverest achieve
ments of the war."

A Norfolk correspondent of the
Richmond Dispatch gives the follow
ing graphic picture of the difficulties
attending the present condition of Con
federate currency Leaning over the
counter, a puzzled volunteer was en
deavoring to add up the change just
paid out by the sleek-haired clerk.—
Before him lay a quantity of mutilated
bills, ragged and dirty pieces of paper,
bits ot card-board, printed checks, a
few copper pennies, milk tickets, post
age stamps, and other interesting spe
cimens of the present outrageous *coin
of the realm.' Over and over again the
puzzled volunteer essayed to count the
pile of villainous currency, and over
and over again he failed to find it sat
isfactory. It was loo much for his rus
tic arithmetic the problem was loo
difficult to solve upon only ten fingers.
The bystanders laughed. The money
was spread out upon the showcase, as
young ladies lay cards upon a table in
telling fortunes, and the soldier stood
before it, searchingly examining every
piece. Do you call this money he
asked, taking up a small yellow paral
lelogram looking very like the brass
card on the top"of a sardine box. 'Do
you call this money holding up an
advertisement of fine Havana cigars—
'and this ?'—a bill for fifteen cents, in
which some weak-minded printer had
raving mad in different varieties
of type. Good for one shave (read
ing slowly) Dick the barber—' 'Do you
call this money?' The sleek-haired
clerk was puzzled also. It'll pass all
town indeed it will, sir.' Once
more the soldier scrutinized the ragged
and incongruous pile, and grasping it
in one hand, soliloquized: So this is
money—money? ha! I call it stuff!
Why, a man might hold his hand full,
and then have but thirty-seven cents

In the early part of last week, a wo

suddenly died, and in the absence of
her husband, who is a soldier in the
army, was placed by her friends in a

band of the deceased returned home,
to be not only surprised, but severely
shocked by the melancholy news that

about the high water mark, fast below

miles. It therefore commands the

is little higher than the fort, and a ppr

armament of the fort consists of ^ei^ht
32-pOunders, four Impounders, and two

light pieces. Tho Jamison of the fort
