Two persons have been arrested on v; suspicion of being the incendiaries. Two vessels collided in Long Island .;;' bound, yesterday morning. One of the vessels was set on fire and totally s destroyed. Ten passengers are sup V,. posed to be lost. . .;;!'".: ;."! x-n The strike among the railroad . dri- vers continues in New York, to the great inconvenience of the ."iip-town " ""people." -A slight riot occurred on Tuesday night, but was promptly sup "xi Tprcssed. t.Z '., .1 -- ' The flying squadron for duty on the -' eastern coast of Maine and the British - j Provinces , will consist of seven vessels, carrying about fifty guns.1 They are the De Soto, Monatauk, ' Shamrock, Ashbel, Augusta, Winooski, and Don. .;;.-; The ; magistrates trying Gen. Mur phy and his staff publicly announced, on the streets of Cornwall on Tuesday, the character of the evidence adduced. It is not very damaging. Gov. Tod,- This gentleman says the Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette has authorized his friends to say, that the use of his name as one of the Vice Presidents of the Johnson National Union Club, so called, was without his authority or consent, and that he gave no authority or license whatever to any one for using his name as Vice President or otherwise of any Johnson Clubj or meeting; and further, that he has no sympathy for any organization of reb f els, Copperheads, or . men of doubtful political character, -and disturbers tf I- the harmony of our country. Gov. , Tod Is the fourth or fifth gen - ! tleman who has publicly, repudiated Mr..' Montgomery. Blair's Johnson Club. Nothing shows the impudence of the Blairs so clearly as this ap pointment of. men as Vice Presidents , of an Association which they do not indorse, and' that, toowith out "their consent," and even withouT consulting -" Nothing can be devised Tnore fatal . f to & party than Mr. Blair's nanagfe w stent. ,The'greate8f populari ty cannot " stand his indorsement, so utterly have the people lost faith inf and 'become disgusted with, the whole Blair family. '" suppression ; t While the war for the of the rebellion was in progress the Confederate Democracy were continu ally crying " peace," " peace." Now - that fighting has ceased, they have be come belligerantly disposed and are Wing the President to disperse Con- " giress by armed forces, and in that way inaugurate a second and more bloody revolution. As the Indianapolis Jour , nal tersely Temarks, they are ' peace lambs m war and baying war-dogs in time of peace." It might also have ap propriately .added ; .They are persist- ; entand continuous sores on the body . politic. Cokrection. There is an article, ... on ; the , second page ofa this -paper -rtredited to -the Louisville Courier t is a mistake. It should be credited : the Evansville Courier; An effort, is being made to consoli date the Paducah Railroad with the Mobile & Ohio Road, with the inten tion of extending that thoroughfare from Paducah to-Vincennes. We do not know what prospect of success the proposed consolidation thas,- but we are fully conscious that if successful and the Vincennes road is built, Ev ansville fll Jbave received,; a severe blow. It will be wisdom on the part of our large real estite owners, mer chants and manufacturers to antici pate this movement by taking hold of the Henderson & Nashville Road and putting it through immediately. 'We are surprised at theindifferejacff fiiani fested by all r our people in an enter prise upon which their future pros perity must so largely depend. , With out a southern railroad outlet Evans ville ? must soon arrive at the limit of her growth',' and realize that her pros perity is on the ebb. Cities usually go ' backwards which fail to take the tide in their affairs at the flood. We should like to see more animation on matters that so manifestly affect our future. -The mere- taking hold j of great enterprises like water works, hotels, public halls and railroads, will of itself attract to our city a popula tion and wealth "that would almost be able to insure th& completion of those enterprises. 'We -can only say .to our business'men- !.; i ; 7. I ' "7"Be wise to-day j 'tis madness to fllpfer." A . --m '- - - The leaders of the present radical party, in their maddened warfare upon Andrew Johnson, have repudiated every profession they made durin? the recent war.j While the armed conflict was going on, they manifested an apparently earnest desire for the cessation of" hostilities upon the single condition of the complete submis sion of the Insurgent States to the Nation al authority houinrOle Journal. kJ 53 Does submission imply restoration to honor" and, power ? -. , The tTournal seems to confound the two The Union men are ; opposed to the recon struction policy that r enables rebels dyed in the blood of patriots to assist in making and enforcing laws for pa-J triots and the ehildreri of "patriots That, and that alone," is 'really Ihe is- kue between the Union party and the J Confederate Democracy." -y ' i-4 TheRKsKinstbility OP tife Wai. The Confederate Democratic press of the North.', as well as Vthe South are very generally taking the position that the Union meriof the North are sole- ly responsible for the .late war for the preservation. of; the Union. The con verse, if ' their premises are correct, is that the"peopIef of the South were justifiable in JrebelHng against the Government and in . endeavoring to destroy it. It has taken a good, deal of "educating up " to enable some of our mostieonservative Democratic pa lers to take this position, but they have pretty generally brought them selves tO it. . ; : v .. i " It is true that not .one.of these; pa pers believe their own declarations on this, subject, but they count so largely on the ignorance of the masses that they hope to gain cred.ence f among their party-followers and thus hpist themselves into power ,. , ! ; Public -schools are too numerous and we do not believe they will suc ceed. j We print on our second page this morning, ; an article from the Evansville Courier of Sunday last. We hope every reader of the Joub, NALwiU look .. at"' it carefully and thoughtfully litis the most unblush ing laudation of traitors that has ever disgraced our city. We are pleased to have tbe Courier oisplay its " hoi;ns, hoofs and tail " so recklessly. Such manifestations ,of admiration for reb els, who have been foiled in their; ef forts ta'destrbyL the Government, ia not exactly the kiiid of Democracy many of our people have been in the habit of indorsing, and they are ;not prepared to indorse it now. ;', 1 .

"The Democracy of Evansville" car ried the election by 200 majority an unprecedented success in that usually Abolition stronghold.";, , . , Democratic papers all over the country have been echoing the, Couri-n erV " premature discharge, and; all claim the result as a Democratic vic tory. ! '!- , Noble, of the Paducah Herald,, says he teas a secessionist, but he has been " reconstructed." His reconstruction seems to consist mainly of intensified hatred of -loyal men and those who stand by Congress in it efforts to pre vent the restoration of rebels to civil power under the Government. That Noble should abuse Gen. John A. Logan is: a" compliment of which that gentleman should feel proud. The editor of the; Louisville ' Democrat, who, perhaps, has enjoyed as good an opportunity of knowing the character of the editor of the 'Paducah ' Herald as'any other gentleman in Kentucky, has pronounced him a- contemptible liar. - We have seen nothing?Jn the Herald to set aside the correctness of the Democrat's statement. On the contrary," all we read in it tends to substantiate its truth, i i " ' '-' CommunicatedV - The Exchange Question Edii tors "Journal: , - i It seems a matter of surprise and perplexity to a number of your read ers that the writer of your monetary articles continues so persistently to misrepresent the Exchange market of Evansville, and without presuming to give, youany, ..advice, would, suggest that it tends very muck to impair the Teputatioti of your journal for veracity, when it is patent to all who daily read your .valuable paper that such state ments are grossly incorrect, for the proof of which, in your article ' of April 6th, I find "New m York Ex change continues scare with an active demand, butiio change in the Tate has as yet been established. , We give the quotations par buying," and 1:10 pre mium selling." Again, April 10th: " Exchange on New York ia very firm at par buying trad 1-10 selling." t , . The foregoing examples are suffi cient to show the general tenor of your reoorts, which have been nearly sy-, onimous for the past sixty days. The writer is cognizant of the fact, and he knows whereof he affirms, that at least one of our banks has created more' Exchange than "ifc6uld "carry several times since the 1st of January last, and irj order to meet the demand for icurrericjr jgt supply its customers, has on three several occasions "tele graphed to Cincinnati for currency by Exprss,and also sold Exchange' to a neighboripg ba'nk " at SOvi pet M dis count, which proves there has been no scarcity, and very naturally causes the unprejudiced reader to infer that Ex change has no;been so "very firm.''' In this connection it will not be out of : place to give a little attention (it don t require much), to the article by "Candor," in - your isae of yester day. He says: . "Every intelligent business man knows that Banking, like other business, must .-be so -con-ductcd. as ,tp pay. or prove a failure." Admitted ; but as a general rule do "intelligent business men" make a practice cdf broelaiminff their; profits frotn the "house-tops?" I modestly think not., it Is uot "the, intention ot the writer to prolong thiscontroversy, as it will -be obyioua to every one that journalism is not his forte, bufcin con clusion would say that he has some times thought that there, must .be a fascination about it, -judging -by the readiness with which some of our savans have been rushing into print, but showing it is .not 'always carried on "without that rancor which often manifests itself in our community;" or like J ohn in the Isle of Patmos something prompts to "write,"- and write they must.
