Some of the secessionists have sent their fam familiea to Washington from Alexandria and the neighborhood for protection. . To be happy, the passions must be cheerful and gay, not gloomy and melancholy: A pro pensity to hope and joy is real riches; one to fear and sorrow, real poverty. It is worthy of note that all the leading Par is journals (with a single exception, and that has the least circulation of any) take a very sensible and friendly view of our Union, and do not hesitate to brand the "separatists" as reb els and traitors. Awful ! Nearly all the organs of the Con federate States complain that Old Abe is con tinually violating the Constitution of the Uni ted States. They must certainly feel much distressed at any violence done to that instru ment. 1 A cow belonging to Mr. Lewis, of Little Falls, Herkimer county, N. Y., gave birth to four calve. "Mother and children doing well." He has been offered a thousand dollars for the bovine family, but expects to make more by ex hibiting them. When the Vermont regiment entered and took possession of Hampton, the other day, it is said that many of the citisens cautiously came out and furtively waved their handkerchiefs in to ken of welcome, though they were hardly sure enough of the position of affairs to express their sentiments boldly, ' - The Collector at Cincinnati has directed that no provisions, except for ordinary local con sumption, shall hereafter go to Kentucky, un less by special permit, which will be granted for limited supplies, where the provisions for home use are guaranteed. The Plain Dealer of Wednesday evening says: Col. Stager ordered two of the Cleveland Tele graph operators, of reliable Union stock, to leave last night for Virginia. They are L. A. Sum mers and Chaa. H. Johns. Good fellows both, and proof against "Sesesh" bribery. They will be located for the present in Wheeling. The exodus from the South at present is im racnbe. No less than 600 passengers came thro' last night over the Louisville snd Nashville Railroad. Many of them had traveled as far as Memphis by the steamer Louisville, but that boat having been confiscated there by the mil itary mob, Tier passengers were subjected to the necessity of coining through by rail. Louis ville Journal, May 39th, The Wheeling Intelligencer of Tuesday the 28tb, in giving the account of the move ment to Oration of the Virginia Union regi ment under Col. Kelley, says a telegraph op erator went with the regiment for the pur pose of taking possession of the wires. CAMP DENNISON, May 29th, 1861. Editor Journal: You will find, should you try it, that to make up a readable correspon dence under the circumstances that surrounds one here, as a common soldier, is next to impos sible. In the first place the private here, unless he presumes very much upon the good nature of his Captain, has very little op portunity to know even what transpires in camp. Again, there is little going on here, even in the routine of camp life. There seems now to be a determination on the part of the authorities of the State, to get all three months' volunteers to go for three years. Many of the men will undoubtedly go for the three years; but there is a very considerable feeling among them to fulfill the three mouths' contract first- No one doubts the propriety and wisdom of enlisting men for three years. A great many, however, volunteered for three mouths, who cannot well go for the long period, but are anxious and demand to be put into ser vice for the term of their enlistments; and to tell them now, who have in many instances made great sacrifice to fly to the instant rescue of their country, that they must enlist fur a longer period or be at once sent home, looks, we think, a little wrong and makes just cause of complaint. These men have now been in camp since the last of April, have endured great pri vations and hardships, in the hopes of being soon lead to the scene of action, nave been to this hour unsupplicd with uniforms, till many are truly destitute, being compelled to clothe themselves or go naked; and no they are told that they shall be sent away thus unless they lengthen the months of their enlistment into years. Many cannot do this, and many will not From the present confused state of military affairs in this State, I beg leave to draw this conclusion, that there is incompetency and mis management some where. This seems deduci ble from all the circumstances of the case. . , Col. Robert Auderaon was at the camp yes terday, and swore in a Uernian regiuieut for three years' service. The Fremont boys are generally well. I am writing this before breakJast while part of the j boys are yet asleep, with some preparing the meal, and others about the JOHN. CAMP DENNISON, May 31, 1861. ' Emroa Jourral,: Letter writing ia never an easy task, but I am sure that I labor under more than ordinary difficulties in this present perfor mance. To proceed to a minute detail of every minute incident of the camp would be impos sible, and to relate any thing outside of these ordinary incidents I cannot, because nothing occurs. The entire camp now presents the most beau tiful appearance. The grounds are spacious, smooth, dry and hard, proving a most excellent place for drill and parade. The discipline does not seem to me to be very strict, though the men only enjoy these privileges fur a season. 1 am utterly unable to give you the least re liable information on tha disputed point, as to whether troops for three months service will be used. It seems mora likely now that they will be used for the term of their enlistment. Why should Government call for 100,000 additional soldiers unless there is such a need aa to require these same three months' men to remain in the field? The troops here are receiving uniforms, sev eral regiments having them now. It ia believ ed now that a good portion of the men stationed here will be removed into western Virginia, in a few days. Every man ia eager fpr action. They are tired of laying in camp, though it ia mere play. The Fremont boys are mostly well; there may be a few eaaeaof measela, but they are not sen ous. A regiment of Indiana volunteers, uniformed and armed, arrived in camp last night enroute, it is rumored, for Virginia. A thousand rumors are continually afloat throughout the camp, hence if any of my state menu prove incorrect, attribute it to rumor. The weather ia very fine, but the nights are JOHN. What We Must be Prepared for. A Richmond letter to the New York Tribune closes as follows: I will again implore you to bo prepared for a murderous attack upon the invading army of the Union. Lot that array, there fore bo formidable in numbers. There are two opinions hero in regard to meeting tbo enemy. One is to let him advaoco to tbo interior of the State, and thus lull him into a sense of security, in order tbo bettor to annihilate him at the most unexpected roo mout; another is to repel invasion imme diately. Bo prepared for all these contingencies. Bo also prepared to meet not soldiers, but murderer!, freebooters, pirates, fiends, fran tic with a lust of blood, chuckling with de light at the thought of scalping, disembow elling, killing thrice and thrice over, their enemy. Be prepared for treachery, arson, for all horrors, sins and Crimea. Be pro pared for mooting tho scum of humanity, who, in limes of peaco, raise murderous bands against legislators in their seats in tho Senate, and who, in timo of war, will pile murder upon assassination, and crime upon crime. Let not your commanding officers expose- themselves unnecessarily. One of iho special efforts of tho "Chivalry" will be to shoot down the commanding of ficers. As in Europe, insane regioides thought themselves able, to upset a govern ment by aiming at the breast of a ruler so in tho South, tho guilty fools think they can upsot ao army by aiming at the head of tho commander. - Though I solemnly reiterate and confirm all I have said about the intrinsic weakness of the South in a military, pecuniary, intel lectual, political, moral, and general sense, yot remombcr for God's sake, remember that despair gives strength, and that the South is in despair. I endeavor to get at the truth, not to overrate the resources of the South, but also not to underrate the sort of diabolical inspiration which it de rives from its wickedness and despair. Desperate Kentucky Scheme. The Louisville Journal of the 30th ult., publishes two loiters disclosing a desperate scheme to precipitate Kentucky into seces sion by the aid of Tennessee. It appears that cannon, rifles, muskets, and Kentucky soldiers have been sent to Union City from Paducah. Union City is in Tonoossee, near the Kentucky border, and according to tha plan as developed in the Journal, it seams that tba Convention of the First Congres sional district, to meet at Mayfleld, is to hurry through a secession ordinance, when the disunionuts of that district, with a strong military force at Mayfield, backed by a far stronger Tennessee military force at Union City, will strike for disunion. The Journal says "here is a case that calls loudly for tha immediate and vigorous interposition of tba authorities of Kentucky." That portion of the State bordering on West Tennessee ia tha hot-bed of traitors in Kentucky, and a strong United States force thrown into Paducah would prove the best Union preservative, as well aa the advance guard of a much needed line of fixed bay onets right straight down to rebellious Memphis.
