The New York Tribune of Wednesday morning says : The stick m rkef yesterday exhibited a downward ten dency and a sluggish movement. The border State stocks were pressed 011 the market, while the demand was less active than of late. The change, however, was not very marked from yesterday, excepting in Tennessee, which fell off 1 percent. When the call reached the shares the market, although firm, was very dull, excepting for New Yuk Central and Illinois Central. Of the latter, cash shares begin to be again scarce and there arc symptoms that the shorts are again to he brought under the screw. About 1.000 share- go abroad by the steamer to morrow. Of New York Central, 2,000 shares were sold, the shorts having some contracts to cover, and the quotation ad vanced to 72#, at which it closed weak. In other stocks the transactions were very limited. The movement of the banks in the four principal cities of the Union, in which weekly reports are made, as shown by their last statement, is as follows: „ I. ■ - Deposits. Specie. Circul'n. N.

Movements of the United States Army in Western Virginia. PHtt.ADEt.PBiA, June 11.—A Grafton despatch re ceived here says that the Confederates are harass ing the Unionists about Beverly. The secession encampment at Huttonsville had been reinforced. Cannon bad ariived from Harper's Ferry and thev were preparing entrenchments. Capt. Miller, of the Fifteenth Ohio Regiment, made a forced march from Grafton to St. George's in Tucker county, and took half a dozen prisoners and seized important correspondence and two se cession Hags. He also prevented the mustering of the militia there on Motidav in accordance with the proclamation of Governor Letcher, to join Col. Por terlield's command. The Eighteenth Ohio Regiment hag arrived at Clarksburg, Vs., on the Parkersburg road. Tbe .Nineteenth Regiment is also en route for Grafton. Gen. McClellan has not reached Cumberland. HAGERSTOWN, June 12 —The telegraphic operator stationed at Martinsburg, and a brakesman of the Baltimore and Ohio liailroad arrived here to-day, having left there yesterday. They sav the most westerly bridge burnt, is at North Branch, iive miles east of Cumberland. The next, going east ward, is that over Patterson's Creek, seven" miles from Cumberland; the next destroyed, is that over Sleep Creek, seventeen miles west of Martinsburg. There will bo no trouble in re building the lirst two bridges, but there will be sonic ditticulty with the last one, which is one hundred feet wide and ninety teet above the water. General Johnson had ordered the Opsqucan bridge to be rebuilt, but the Confederates have not been able to accomplish it. The telegraphic instruments have been taken from the oflice at Martinsburg, to prevent their being used. Col. Edmunden commands the secession forces at Martinsburg. He has three companies of the Winchester Rifles, the Winchester Mounted Guerillas and another companv. Colonel Stewart commands the camp at Gainesville, five miles north of Martinsburg. lie has charge of all the forces stationed jtt the fords and ferries on the Potomac, between Falling Springs and Hancock. The brake-man puts the number of troops there at 14,000. He is confident about the number. The number of engines lying at Martinsburg is said to be above tittv. Tbe Confederate troops bad only ■succeeded in getting one at Harper's Ferry before tbe burniugof the Opequcan bridge. The Latest from Western Maryland. HAGKKSTUWN, J une 12.— Intelligent Union men here assign the reasons for the non-advance of Gen. Patterson's division: First, that the Maryland Leg islature is in session at Frederick, and a "column from Washington must come bv that route. They hope the Legislature will adjourn this week; second, that the government desitcs, as far as possible, to keep troops out of Maryland until alter the Con gressional election to morrow. The action of the Maryland House of Delegates instructing the Senators of the State in Congress to vote for the recognition of the Southern Confeder acy excited a feeling of deep resentment, among the Union men here. Many say that the federal gov ernment ought to disperse the Legislature by force. The express messenger of the Associated Press sent out last night says that no firing took place during the night, either at Williamspnrt or dam No. 5. There was more or less firing at the dam all day yesterday, and it is thought hostilities will be renewed there this afternoon. No one bad been hurt at last accounts among the Marylanders. One Virginian was struck yesterday evening. War Items. 1* RKDERICK, June 12. — A letter received "hereto day states that on Monday evening last a body of 3,000 United States troops reached Kockvilie, Montgomery county, and encamped there. The supposition expressed by the writer of the letter, is, that the force will be divided and despatched to guard Edward's ford and Nolan's ford across the Potomac, across which the Virginians might come and assail the Capitol in the rear. A large Con federate States force is said to be stationed in the neighborhood ot the fords mentioned, and tears of a collision are expressed. The news of the Great Bethel battle, received here this evening, creates much and general excitement. The sympathizers with the cause of the South are jubilant over the stirting tidings, and do not attempt to conceal their great gratification. The Union men express unaffected regret at the result. There exists a general incredulity at the report of the small number of killed and wounded, which is conjectured to have been very heavy. Tile Unllooii lit War. WASHINGTON, June 11.—The government has made a temporary arrangement with the well known Professor Lowe for an aeronautical recon nuisance of the strength and position of the rebel forces at Fairlax Court-house and Manassas Junc tion. lie has been actively engaged to-day in get ting ready tor his first asceDsinn to-morrow. The balloon will be attached to a cable some two thou sand feet in length, in order to secure a steady point of observation. In addition to the teronaut, an engineer officer of the regular army and a telegraph operator, with tbe necessary apparatus, will go up. A supply of wire wiil be taken aboard, and reeled off as the bal loon rises, to insure telegraphic communication with below. Soul hern Items. LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 12. —The Surveyor of the Customs at Evansville, Indiana, has notified steam ers that the transportation of provisions to Smith land and Paducah, Ky., are in violation of the in structions of the government, and will be prohibi ted. Savannah papers of the 7th inst. state that the ship Sebasticook, of Bath, Me., had been seized by the Collector of the port in consequence of re maining there longer than allowed by law. Special despatch from Charleston to the New Orleans Picayune, dated the Bth instant, says that Gov. Pickens has published a notification against sending funds to the North, such being in conflict with the law on the subject. Conference between tin* Governor of Misson soorl niitl the Federal Authorities. ST. LOUIS, June 12. —A conference between the State and federal authorities has been held. Tbe State was represented by Governor Jackson and Major General Price, and the genera! government by General Lyon and Colonel Blair. The State authorities demanded tbe removal or disbandiug of the federal troops from the soil of Missouri, and stipulated that the State would dis band the militia. General Lyon refused to com ply and the conference, after a session of four hours, broke up without coming to a pacific conclusicn. Governor Jackson and Genera! Price returned at once to Jefferson city by a special train. Army Movements. WASHINGTON, June 12. —C01. Stone's column has been heard from this morning, but there is nothing to indicate their ultimate movements. They are still in Maryland. The improbable rumor that General Butler had renewed the battle at Great Bethel, with great re sults, caused an intense excitement throughout the city to-dav. Lieutenant Butler to-day brought the official des patches of the actual engagement under General I'ierce. They do not essentially vary from the pub lished accounts. It is therein stated that, of the fourteen federals killed, eight fell by the hands of their friends, through mistake, as heretofore ex plained, and that the number of wounded is foriy fire. Preparations at IVew Orleans to Capture the Likited .States Sloop-of-AVar Brooklyn. PHILADELPHIA, June 11.—A young man who left New Orleans on Wednesday of last week reports that steam tow-boats were being prepared tbere for pri vateers, and a large flotilla was getting ready to go down with a floating battery to capture the United States sloop-of-war Brooklyn, then blockading the mouth of tbe Mississippi. It was asserted at New Orleans that 40,000 Con federate troops were encamped in tbe neighborhood of that city. Troops for tlinmbersburg.

BALTIMORE, THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1861. Boston Police After a Confederate Despatch Bearer. BOSTON, June 12.—The Superintendent of police of this city visited the steamer America with a posse to-day, having suspicions that Wm. Trapp man, a Captain of the Confederate army was on board in the character of bearer of despatches Irom Jefferson Davis. Trappman's state-room was visa ed, and his papers inspected. He was very indig nant, declaring himself the Prussian Consul at Charleston (as he was recently), and producing his pipers in evidence thereof, signed by Franklin Pierce. lie also exhibited a pass port, signed by Robert Branch, British Consul at Charleston, lie had also papers showing him to he the bearer of despatches from Lord Lyons to the British government, and he threatened to direct the vengeance of that government against those who interfered with him. His state-room was searched, but nothing of an objectionable character was found, and he was allowed to go in the steamer. The Superintendent of Police on returning to his office, found a despatch authorizing the arrest and holding of Mr. Trapprnan for treason and the se curement of his papers by order of the Secretary of State, but the steamer had sailed. Army A flairs. WASHINGTON, June 12.—Tbe acting Quartermas ter-General has ordered the construction ol one thousahd wagons for the use of the army, to be equally divided among ten different manufacturers. John B. Murrav, banker, No. 39 Nassau street, New Y rk, is authorized by the War Department, with tlie sanction of the Postmaster-General, to forward free letters and packages for the army at Washington and Alexandria, and all the advanced posts of the army. Col. Keys will, there is little, if any doubt, be appointed Brigadier-General in the army. A bearer of despatches to General Butler, left Washington to-day. Western Virginia Convention. WHEELING, June Pi.—The Western Virginia Con vention met here yesterday, and after a temp rary organization, adjourned this morning. About forty c- unties are represented. Arthur J. Baseman, of Wood county, was chosen perma nent chairman, arid delivered a patriotic address. The programme of the Convention seems to be a Provisional Government for the State and the de position of the present State authorities. Mr. Carlile offered resolutions which were adopt ed, thanking Gen. McClellan, commending the gal lantry of the troops at Phillippi, and compliment ing the bravery of Col. Kellv. [SECOND DESPATCH.] WHEELING, June 12, P. M.—This afternoon a committee of thirteen was appointed to prepare business for the Convention. Resolutions were submitted for the separation of Western Virginia from the State and the formation of a new State, the preparatory arrangements to be submitted to the Legislature to be c mvened in this city. This mode is prelerred in order to avoid a burthensome State debt which Western Virginia had no Dart in incurring. Arrival of tlic North >tnr. NEW YOKK, June 12.—The steamer North Star has arrived with tbe California mail 3 of the 21st ult. and treasure. The papers of the 4th of June contain advices from Carthagena, which report Mosquera to have beaten the Government forces in two battles, in the first of which, on April 25th, the latter lost 1,300 in killed and wounded. The second battle oc curred near Bogale. General Mosquera was doubtless in possession of the Capital. A Mnmmotli Flag for Washington. PHILADELPHIA June 12 — A citizen ot Washing ton has purchased here a flag to elevate on the 4ih of July on the VVashington National Monument. The flag is 20 by 40 feet.

Klcciion in Kansas. LEAVENWORTH, June 11.— A special election was held in this State to-day for member of Congress. There was no opposition to the election of M. F. Conway, the Republican candidate. A very light vote was polled. CITY INTELLIGENCE. BEEF FOR THE FEDERAL TROOPS. —Advertisements having been published inviting proposals to furnish supplies of beef and live cattle for that portion of the federal troops in and around Fortress .Monroe, a number of Baltimoreans became bidders for the proposals. The bids were opened on Tuesday bv Captain Tay lor, who is the chief officer of tbe Com missary Department. The following were the bids for iurnishing beef, with tbe understanding that the neck and shins were to be excluded: Jacob Wal temever, SO 45 per 100 lbs.; Kiinberlv Brothers, $9; T. Mules, $8.97; Samuel J. Pentz A Br,,' 58.70; J. J. Bankard and Lewis A. Thomas, $8.45; Robert Turner, $7 90; Nathan J. Elliott, 57.40. The contract was awarded to the lowest bidder. It is expected that the cattle will be brought to this city principally over the Northern Ceutral Railroad. The bids for the contract to supply live cattle, which are intended for l he forces without the fortress, were as follows: Edward Williams, $6.35 per 100 lbs , live weight; Kiuiberlv Brothers, $6; F. Mules, $5.65. As there was an informality in the proposals of the two last named bidders, Captain Taylor said he would not be able to decide concerning them until yesterday. The cont-act is to be made for an indefinite period. It is estimated that Hbout 9,000 barrels of beef per week are con sumed within tbe fortress. STABBING CASE. —About seven o'clock on Tues day evening, a stranger entered the brush factory of Mr. Dailey, corner of Charles and Lombard streets, and asked to be shown some brushes.— Picking up one of a number shown him, he a.-ked the price of it, anil was told that it was worth $1 25. He then offered Mr. Dailey twenty-live cents, and told him that he would give him a dollar the next day. Mr. D. replied that he did not sell brushes in that way. The individual then lelt the store. In a short time afterwards Mr. Dailey closed his store and was passing up Charles street, when he was accosted by the same party at the corner of Wine alley, who invited him to take a driuk. Mr. Dailey replied that he was not a drinking man, whereupon the fellow stabbed him in the right side, and then retreated. Mr. Dailev instantly gave the alarm, but his assailant bad fled, and all efforts to discover hitn have proved unsuccessful. The knife penetrated the ribs, but the wound is not supposed to be fatal. He was removed to his dwel ling, where the proper assistance was rendered. Mr. Dailey can conceive of no reason for this as sault, as the fellow was an entire stranger to him. INTIMIDATING Y OTEKS —For some davs past the Black Republican Davis party, have been engaged in efforts to intimidate voters in the fourth Con gressional district. This game is directed particu larly against the German population. This mode of intimidation is to write an anonymous letter to the person, in which be is told that he has been watched, that he is known as a traitor, and threat ening him and his children with punishment and even death, unless he changes liis course before elec tion day. This miserable trick shows too plainly the subterfugs to which this disreputable party now have to resort as the only means left of ob taining a sufficient vote. MAN SHOT BY A WOMAN.— About 11 o'clock on Tuesday night a man named John YV. King, enter ed a house kept by a Susan Jackson, on the Cross way, where he took a number of drinks, and soon got into a fight with several of tbe girls of the house. The woman Jackson interfered, when King struck her in tbe lace, whereupon she drew a sin gle-barrelled pistol and fired at him. The con tents (a number of slugs) took effect in King's right shoulder. The police entered and took the parties to the station-house, and Justice Griffin committed them to jail for conrt. King was not dangerously wounded. THEFT.— Jane Dunn, a colored woman, was yes terday taken into custody by officer Vansant, upon the charge of stealing two pieces of muslin from the store of Lewis Hammerslough, No. 155 Lexington street. She was arraigned before Justice Shipley, who committed her to await the action of tbe Grand Jury. Officer Council yesterday arrested Geo. Jobnson, colored, upon the charge of stealing a bedstead and blanket, the property of Mr. Cranmel, No. 126 Grundy street. Justice Shipley committed him for Court. THE UNION OUT OF THE MUD. —After several days labor the big gun "Union," which fell into the basin on Friday last, bas been hauled up, and is now on board a schooner route for Fortress Mon roe. Gen. Butler will no doubt use this piece to dislodge the "rebels" from their fortifications at Bethel biidge, at the respectable distance at which he can use tbis gun. There will not be much dan ger of his precious life, though the drums of his ears may be slightly affected by the explosion. FIRE. —An alarm ol fire was sounded about half past three o'clock yesterday morning, which arose from the discovery of fire in the stable in the rear of the dwelling of George Blake, No. 151 York street, between Sharp and Hanover. It was caused by placing live coal ashes in an adjoining shed. The flames were extinguished before much damage had been sustained. A policy of insurance in the Firemen's office covers the loss, which is small. FURTHER POSTPONEMENT.— The further examina tion of Mr. W. S. Anderson before United States Commissioner llanan, upon a charge of treason, which was to have taken place yesterday, was post poned till to-morrow morring, at 10 o'clock. LAW INTELLIGENCE.

Henry Keene, Sr., to the stand to testify in regard to the bad condi tion of the road, when Messrs.

' THE KILLED A\U VVOIiMIED. t Correspondence of the Associated Press ] FOBTUESS MONKOE, Juae 11, 6 o'clock, P. Al. The account sent you yesterday of the engagement at Great Bethel, and the repulse of the federal troops, embracing all the intelligence received at headquarters up to the departure of the boat, proves to have been substantially correct, except that the number of killed and wounded falls some what below the number then stated. The number ol killed does not exceed twenty. There are but few particulars to be added to-day. N'o further military movements have yet taken place. The troops engaged in the affair of yester day are resting frotu their great fatigue, consequent upon a march of about twenty miles, an action of nearly two hours, with not a complete meal for more than twenty-four hours. On the withdrawal of the federal troops the Con federate cavalry and infantry in considerable force followed as far as New Market bridge, this side of Little Bethel, inhumanly charging, in one instance, on those who were bearing off the dead and wounded. The bridge was burnt by the enemy. The enemy had in action six pieces of cannon be hind their batteries. ADDITIONAL PROM FORTRESS MONROE fhe steamer Georgianna arrived at the wharf early yesterday morning, but brings no further re liable details of the fight at Great Bethel. Captain Butler, nephew of General Butler, came up in the Georgianna, as bearer of despatches, and proceeded on to Washington. Several other offi cers came up as passengers, and a private of l)ur yea's Zouaves, on some business connected with the fort. The news contains nothing of importance, with the exception of the rumor which comes from Hampton, that the Confederates were commanded by Col. John 11. Msgruder. The killed and wounded, according to General Butler's revised despatch, are not as heavy as at first reported, the loss not being over sixteen killed and sixty wound ed. The Zouave acknowl edged to nearly that many from his own regiment, and a gentleman who was on the Adelaide on Mon day reports that dead and wounded were brought in ail dav till dark, it is generally acknowledged as stated in our report yesterday, that the number of the Confederates was much' smaller than was stated by the other papers. The total force is now estimated as low as 500, but this is mere rumor. General Pierce shirks the responsibility of the disaster, throwing the blame on Major Winthrop, but so wretched was the discipline of the command, that the Colonels of three out of the six regiments refused to order their men to march up to the bat tery, declaring that such was their want of confi dence in General Pierce, that they would not run the risk of imperiling their lives, preferring rather to be court-martialed than do so. Much dissatisfaction and mortification is exhibi ted by the troops at the Fortress, who were not en gaged in the battle, at the result. The volunteers throw the odium of the defeat on Gen. Pierce", charging that he exposed the men to terrible fires, without giving them an opportunity to attack. It is reported that when Gen. Pierce returned to the Fortress and entered the presence of Gen. Butler, that officer gave expression to his wounded feelings in very vigorous saxon. The Patriot, the Republican organ of this city, says: "Genera! Butler was perfectly enraged against him, ana when Pierce was brought before him, he cursed him, called him a fool and a coward, told him he bad failed in the performance of his duty, declaring that he had no confidence in him, and that he would not herealter trust hiiu, no matter how small or unimportant the affair." It was i epnrted that Major Winthrop was among the missing, but this was incorrect, as he is now at the fortress, and will no doubt be able to answer the charge of his superior ollicer. The defeated troops are jeered at by their more valorous com panions, who were snugly in their quarters while the fight was going on. The impression among knowing ones is that General Butler would not have fared any better than General Pierce, had he been in command. Au opportunity will, no doubt, soon present itself (as General Butler expressed the determination to take the battery before Satur day) when he will have a chance to exhibit the excellence of his skill as a military chieftain. The New Y'ork Troy regiment are much excited relative to the brush they had with the German regiment. They say they never would have run had they known who it was that was firing; but beng under the impression that it was the Confed erate troops, and not bting well acquainted with the topography of the country, they considered it was best to inake a rapid retreat over the ground they had just traversed. They never would have run bad they known it was the German regiment, and are anxious now to renew the contest and fight it out. Capt. Whiting, who was out reconnoitering with two privates, was captured; the privates making good their escape, although they were fired upon by several companies. He is now confined at the Fortress. Severaj stories are afloat as to informa tion given by him of the numbers and distribution of the Confederates, hut nothing positive has as yet been received. All persons visiting Fortress Monroe are eompel ed to take the oath as given in our yesterday's is sue; a refusal to comply consigning the unfortu nate freeman to the guard house. The New Y'ork Herald of yesterday must have manufactured the following enormity which we clip from that paper: LATER AND HIGHLY IMPORTANT— Capture of the Rebel Catteries at Ureal Bethel by Gen. Butler— One Thousand Rebel Prisoners Taken.—WASHING TON, June 12—1 A. M.—A special messenger ar rived an hour since from Fortress Monroe, bring ing the intelligence that General Butler this morn ing proceeded, with a large reinforcement, to Great Bethel, and after a severe tight captured their bat teries, one of seven, and the masked battery of fourteen guns, and also took one thousand rebel prisoners. * I Special Correspondence Daily Exchange.] FROM HAMPER'S FERRY. HARPER'S FERRY, June 10, 1861 Considerable movement is taking place among the troops here, the most important of which is that a large detachment has been sent up to Shepherds town. That place is being strongly defended so as to annoy, as much as possible, the advancing col umn of the Northern forces. The Confederate troops, some seven hundred strong, left Point of Rocks on yesterday evening, concentrating at this place. That position, therefore, is now left open. Before evacuating, they burned the bridge con necting the Maryland and Virginia sides, as also the bridge at Berlin, some six miles nbove, and halt-way between the Point of Rocks and the ferry. About eight hundred Georgia men arrived here yesterday, and sixteen hundred of Louisiana and Georgia forces came up to-day. Tbey are all fully armed and equipped, and prepared to do good ser vice. if you could see them, the impression would really be conveyed that they can give hard knocks, and hold up against much fatigue. Provisions of ail kinds and in abundance are daily received by the Winchester railroad, showing that as long as the Manassas Junction is retained, there will be no dearth ol material aid. A fine budge below Leesburg bas been destroyed by the Confederates. We are ready bere, and armed on all sides, for an extensive battle. Any number less than fifty thousand would stand nt odds in attempting to cap ture the Ferry; and even with that force, one-half would never meet their Iriends again. Qui VIVE. HARPER'S FERRY, June 12. Sluices have been cut in tne canal at and abou' this place, and the water drained out. Canal boats, therefore, that were unlucky enough to be found upon the briny deep, have touched bottom, and are lyiug—not high and dry—but low and muddy. A Union company at Frederick, under the do. mestic name of the "Home Guards," march down to the Monocacy bridge every night for the avowed purpose of protecting it, but in reality to show their patriotism by earning 51.59 per night, each. Very clever boys, these; and boiling over with fury and a devout love for the almighty dollar. I bad taken up an impression, probably from reading the Examiner that the Union sentiment predominated in the pretty little village of Frederick. But in this, as" in the federal accounts of battles and skirmishes, I have been greatly deceived. Citizens there speak their mind tret ly on the subject of Southern rights, and I dis covered many friends to the cause. You may rely upon it that when the time comes, old Frederick county will come out "right side up with care." Our troops have heretofore acted so generally on the defensive that there is some considerable talk about the lorces here marching out and engaging in open battle. The invitation may, peradventure, be proposed and accepted; but wo! to the deluded fellows that attempt to enter this rifle-bored mouse trap. It will be a regular spider-and-fly business. I saw a gentleman to-dav who passed Old Point when the wounded from the Great Bethel battle were being carried in. He states it as his belief, and spoken without prejudice, that there must have been two thousand killed and wounded in that affray. It was a cunningly devised atfair, and evinces that military skill is not deficient amongst our leaders. We are well posted as to the heavy columns ad vancing against tbis point, and knowing, dare to stand up "front face." Qui VIVE. [Special Correspondence of the Daily Exchange.) FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS, June, 1, 1861. Owing to the stirring times I am induced to drop you a brief note and advise you bow we are get ting along on the "Frontier." We are a shade better off'than you in national affairs, and we in~ *end to defend the right at a I hazard?. Everything | wears a military aspect, this being one of the Forts recently evacuated by the Federal troops and one, too, according to Mr. Lincoln's inaugural, to be retaken. Well, now! I tell you they will have a nice time in so doing. A large military force has gone out on the "Indian" line for defence, and hun dreds are on their way to protect this post. On learning the unfortunate death of Mr. Jack son, who despatched the renowned EPsworth at Alexandria, in his endeavors to take down the Aug of the Confederate States, I opened a subscription for the family. Fifty dollars is alreadv subscribed, and I wish you would give me ttie particulars anil to whom and how I shall make the remittance. Wt; want old Maryland to wake up and hurst the bonds of "Hicks Ac (J0.," and once more take her stand on the sid • of Dixie—as there is no more middle-grounds. I sincerely pity, from my heart, the submission she has been placed in. God and the right be with you. M. M. —Arms, crops and plenty—no want in this region. Missouri ami Kentucky. The special correspondent of the N. Y. World writes as follows: S- Uouis, June 7. —lt is daily becoming more certain that the rebellion is far from being quelled I 1?., "We have scotched the snake—not killed it." Recent developments show that the State prison has been converted into an arsenal, and that quan tities of powder, cartridges, &c , have b.-en taken to the Arkansas border overland. One morning this week a wagon was found upset on the road" loaded with cartridges and other munitions of war, evidently part of a train which had started during the night. The Lieutenant Governor of the StUe has gone to Aikansas, and is making secession speeches. Ir is said that he has also a commission from the Governor t- superintend the transfer of this ammunition and receive in exchange muskets, of which they stand in great need. Union men are being driven out daily from counties where the se cession element preponderates. In consonance with all their actions, Gen. Price has issued an ad dress to the Brigadier-Generals of the State, evi dently intended as a shield for the further arming of State troops. As the proclamation is already before your read ers, it will be seen that General Price assumes throughout the very question in dispute—State sovereignty. The right to bear arm?, and the right to choose side 3 in this contest are, he thinks, inde feasible. This is all that is necessary to precipi tate the State. It is the fear of his forces being disarmed by the government which makes him publish this needless document, and is simply put forth in the iiiiorest of secession. The symptoms in Kentucky are not so satisfacto ry as many at the North believe. The value of a J- ni .' >n votc decreases as you near the equator. While it is true that a majority of the voters are in favor of the Union as a sentiment , yet there is a large minority who are for the negro; and while they will not fight for principles, they are ready to fight for possessions. The few can intimidate the many, and it is necessary that the Government should occupy both Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland and Virgini i, in order to insure their unqualified allegiance. Troops for Harper's Ferry. The 11th Pennsylvania regiment, Col. Jarrett, passed through this city yesterday morning, en route for Harper's Ferry, by wav of Chambers burg. The reginfHlt numbered 780 men. They have for some time past been encamped at Havre de Grace, which place they left at 7 o'clock yester day morning. They were succeeded at that point by a regiment from Wilmington, Del. [Special Correspondence of the I'hi/a. Ledger.] The Harper** Ferry Movement. CIIAMBEKSBUHG, June 9 —ln my last I informed you of the advance of the First Brigade under com mand of Colonel I ho mas, U. S. A., to Greencaalle. Yesterday Gen. Williams, with Second Brigade, followed him. To day I rode over to Greencastle and found the men comjdetelv encamped, the First Rrigade ashort distance in advance of the town, aud the Second about a mile' this side. Other brigades will soon be pushed forward, as there is a prospect of the field batteries arriving by Tuesday, ('ol. Dixon H. Miles, Second United States Infantry, ariived on Saturday, with one company of Second United States Infantry, and the band, and lias been put in command of a regi ment now forming. Colonel Z.igler's Sixteenth Regiment Pennsylva nia volunteers also arrived yesterday, and went into camp about two and a half miles south of this with Colonel .Miles' brigade. Five companies of United .States Third Infantry arrived this morning under command of Major' O. 1,. Sheppard, from Washington via Carlisle, and were also assigned to Colonel Miles. Company F, Fourth United States Artillery, will arrive about Tuesday, and be assigned to the same brigade. On Tuesday morning there will also ar rive from Washington via Harrisburg, a Rhode Island regiment. Col. Rurnside, with light artillery battery, and will probably be pushed forward at once to Greencistle. A Michigan regiment will probably be herb to morrow, and will go into Col. Miles' brigade. Two Ohio regiments are also expected. So you see this army is being greatly strengthened; and what is better, includes a large proportion of United States troops, about one regiment infantry and five hun dred horse. Ihe field batteries will probably arrive on Tues day or Wednesday, and will consist of about live batteries of six guns each. We may have a 6iege train sent later for work at Harper's Ferry. From the rapid additions being made to the army on this line, and from the fact that that the Gene ral-in-Chief sends such strong reinforcements from the neighborhood of Washington, at this time, it, is plain that he does not surrender. There is every prospect that by the middle of tbe week a strong and rapid movement will be made towards Harper's Ferry. Col. Thomas' brigade, followed by Gen. Williams, with the Second, will be thrown forward to Hagerstown and beyond, and as tbe other brigades coine up, proceed to Wil iiamsport and thence on to Martinsburg. I do not think there will be any regular engage ment, until after reaching Martinsburg. Y'uu shall be k.-pt promptly advised of all important movements. Uwtler as a General. We read with astonishment, says the New Y'ork Times, that after the repulse of our men the garri son in fortress Monroe set to work with frantic haste to fortify that work against an apprehended attack on the land side ! What does this mean? It was stated a few days ago that General Butler had under his command about fifteen thousand men, and that about ten thousand of thetn were encamp ed outside of the tort. Had they no entrenchments nor artillery to.defend thein against au attack ? Forces at Winchester. • A very important military movement was made at Harper's Ferry on Saturday—namely, the dis position ol two thousand Alabama troops along the railroad from Bolivar (which is a mile above the railroad bridge), to Winchester, thirty-two miles distant. There are four companies each at Charles town, Cameron, YVadesville, Stephenson and Win chester. It is clearly General Johnson's intention to have that road well guarded, as it will afford him by means of three good wagon roads—one leading to Strasburg, another to Front Royal, and the third to Arrowsville—the necessary facilities for retreating to the Manassa' Gap Railroad, and thus strengthening that line. For it is Jell'. Davis' intention to strengthen that line and hold it until the rebels are driven from it after a desperate struggle. Cor. N. Y. Herald AN ENGLISH VIEW. From the London Review of May 25 we clip the following: We know that it is in vain to appeal to the A mer can people from this side of the globe. But know ing also how impulsive they are—how liable to sud den tits ol enthusiasm, and to fits, quite as sudden, of apathy and indifference—we think that the war fever of the North, violently as it appears to rage, may subside quite as quickly as it has been excited. The South has made up its mind for independence; and sooner or later will achieve it. But, deplora ble as its mistake may have been in itself and in its consequences, still more deplorable will be that of the North, if, by unhpppy pertinacity, it succeed in re-conquering by fire and sword, by blockade and by invasion, the unwilling people, whose pecu liar institution was the only weakness and fatal in gredient in the constitution of the late unnatural co-pa rtnery. By acknowledging the secession of any State that shall decree its secession by the legal votes of its people, the North would be free, not alone of tbe guilt, but of the daDger arising from slavery; and, released from the evil passions and the bitter conflicts of the question, would have leisure and opportunity to consolidate a far nobler Union, extending over the great West to the shores of tbe Pacific, and embracing in due course of time, by peaceab'e and amicable arrangement with Great Britain and Canada, the whole of the British pos sessions. With a future such as that before it, and with a territory larger than Europe, in which, as in England, no slave should be able to breathe, why should they look upon the loss of the slave States as a calamity? Of what use to a truly free and really united North would be the possession of the States on the borders of the Gulf ot Mexico, and on the banks of the Lower Mississippi? Were tbe North wise—did it hate slavery as it ought, did it fully apnreciate the career that would lie before it as soon as it could declare to the world, with a clear conscience, that there were no slaves within its borders; it would hail the secession of the South as the most signal advantage that could befall, and instead of fighting to re-annex slavery, would build a bridge of gold for its retreating enemv.— The conflict is not only irrepressible,as Mr. Seward has declared, but irreconcilable; and unless the North is prepared not only to subdue the South, eoute qui coutc, but to abolish slavery after the con quest, its duty is to yield to tbe demand of separa tion. A RELIC FOUND IN THE SEA. —A correspondent of the London Times writes from Scarborough, England: A highly interesting relic of by-gone days was re cently fished up in the trawling net of the smack Vigilant, of Hull, near the Goodwin Sands. It con sists of a large Roman vase of remarkably strong earthenware, two feet six inches in height,"and five feet nine inches in circumference, having two handles and a round bottom; it has evidently been intended, when used, to be slung. When first brought up it presented an extraordinary specta cle, being completely covered with seaweed, oyster and mussel shells, together with a deep and verv beautitul coating of coralines. Unlike the vase fished up by the fisherman in the Arabian Nights, it was not corked or scaled with the seal of Solo mon, nor yet did any geni emerge from it; but may it not from its capacity, holding sixteen gallons, and the place where it Was found, have bpen used to hold a supply uf water for one of the galleys of the Roman squadron before the birth of Christ ? BUSINESS IN THE NEW YORK BOARD OF COUN CILMKN. —On the 10th inst., a petition was received from Stephen H. Branch,informing the Board that these are the times to try men's souls, that he pro foundly loves his country; was a soldier in the War of Rhode Island in 1843, and that his name is recorded in the military archives of that State; that in April last he offered his services for the present war, which were declined on the ground that he could not endure the hardships of the camp; that he owns a public journal called the Union, which is devoted to the eternal union o( the States and demands the immediate death of Davis and Beauregard and their disciples; that he resDect fully solicits the corporation advertisements, for which he will be extremely grateful until he dies The paper was referred to the Special Committee on Frinting.

FiiEiiEtticK, June 11, 18G1. In the House, this forenoon, Mr. Sangston pre sented memorials from Charles Murdoch, and from John 11. Durall and others, praying the examina tion into and adjustment of certain grievances which they had suffered in their contracts with the Direc tors ot the Maryland I'enitentiarv, who were charged with arbitrary conduct seriously detrimen tal to the interests of the memorialists. On motion of Mr. McCleary a message was sent to the Senate proposing the appointment of a Join Committee of three to t ike the matter into con sideration. The motion was agreed to, and Messrs. McCleary, Maxwell and Harnard appointed on the part, of the House. Mr. Walhs. Irotn the Committee on Federal Re lations, to whom had been referred the several Communications ot Governor Hicks in response to a call of the 11 use for copies of all his correspon dence with officers ol the United States Govern ment since the -4th of March last, submitted are port (read by himself) bitterly sarcastic in its tone, ar.d which reviewed with severity the grounds upon which he had curtly declined to comply with the call of the House. Accompanying the report was a House resolution for the appointment of a special committee to ex amine all correspondence of the Executive now on tile at the State Department, and empowered to send for persons and papers; and the following joint resolutions : t Vhereas, Ross Winans, a member of the Jlouse of Dele gates of Maryland from the city of Baltimore, on his way to his home from the discharge of liis official duties, on the 14th of May last, was arbitrarily and illegally arrest ed- on a public highway, in the presence nf the Governor of this S'ate, by an armed force under the orders of the fed- nil Government, and was forcibly imprisoned and held in custody thereaf er at Auuapolis and Fort Molten ry. without color of lawful process or right, by the com mand, and at the arbitrary will and pleasure, of the Pres ident of the United States; and IVhereas, Sundry other citizens of Maryland have been unlawfully dealt with, in the same despotic and op pressive manner, by the same usurped authority, and Some of them have iti fact been re la o veil by force from beyond the limits of the Mate of Maryland and tin jurisdiction of ln-r tribunals, in utter violation of their rights as citizens and of the rights of the State as a mem ber of the Federal Union; and Whereas, The unconstitutional and arbitrary proceed Digs of the Federal Government have not lieen confined to the violation of the personal rights and liberties of the citizens of Maryland, but have been extended into every department of oppressive illegality, so that ilie property of no man is safe; the sanctity of no dwelling is respected; and the sacreduess of private correspon dence no longer exists. Whereas. The Senate and House of Delegates of Mary land, recognizing the obligation of the State, as Tar as in her lies to protect and defend her people against usurped at.d arbitrary power, however difficult the fulfilment of that high obligation may be rendered by disastrous cir cumstances, feel it due to her dignity and independence that history should not record the overthrow of public freedom for an instant within her borders without re cording likewise the indignant expression of iier resent ment and remonstrance. -Note, therefore, he it Resolved, That the Senate and House of Delegates of Maryland, in the name and in be half of the cod people of the State, do accordingly regis ter this their earnest and unqualified protest against the oppressive and tyrannical assertion and exercise of mili tary jurisdiction within the limits of Maryland over the persons and property of her citizens by the government of the United States, and do solemnly declare the same to be subversive of the most sacred guarantees of the Con stitution, and in flagrant violation of the fundamental and most cherished principles of American free govern ment. Resolved further. That these resolutions he communi cated to the Senators ot Maryland, in Congress, with the request that they present the same to the Senate, to he recorded among its proceedings in perpetual memory of the solemn remonstrance of this State against the mani fold usurpations and oppressions of the federal govern ment. Upon motion of Mr. DeDison, two thousand cop ies of the report were ordered to be printed. The Speaker laid before the House the resigna tion of J< tin Hoffman, one of the State Directors in the Mechanics' Hank of Baltimore, who a-signed an intended absence from the city as a cause fur his retirement. Mr. Gordon, from the Committee on Juciary, reported a series of bills, the object ot whicti he stated, in response to a question of Mr. Mclntire, was to protect the personal rights of the citizens of Maryland by making the property of those who should trespass upon them, and who should escape beyond the jurisdiction of Maryland, responsible for their misconduct. The first and most imporl ent of the series, and which was adopted by a vote of ayes 45, nays 6, is as follows: An Act entitled an Act to amend the 10th article of tho Code of Public General Laws, by adding jheretvtbe following sections relating to attachments against non residents of the State and parties absconding there from, in certain actions for wrongs affecting the per sonal rights of citizens. Section 1 He it enacted by the General Assembly of Ma ryland, That in all actions for illegal arrest, false im prisnnment, or violation of the 21st. 23d, 28th and 29th articlts of the Declaration of Lights, or any of them. or of the existing or any future provisions of the Code touch i g the writ of habeas carpus, or proceedings thereunder,-the plaintiff shall be entitled to the benefit of all the provi sions of this article in regaril to attachments against the lands, tenements, goods, chattels and credits of non-resi dent or absconding defendants Section 2. No warrant from a Judge or Justice of the I'eace shall be necessary in order to entitle the plaintiff in any of the casts provided for in the preceding section, to the benefit of the remedy therein granted, but attach ments for the amount of the damages claimed in the do claration shall be issued upon the written order of the plaintiff or his attorney, by the Clerk of the Court in which the action shall be instituted, unon the filing of the declaration, with an affidavit by the plaintiff or his attorney, or some other person, that the said action hath been instituted bona fide, and for a wrong actually done as in said declaration set forth. Section 3. This act shall he literally construed as a remedial act, and the provisions of this article, and of all other articles of the Cede applicable to the premises, shall be applied in furtherance of the remedy and with out hindrance for defect of form merely. Section 4. This act shall take effect from and immedi ately after its passage. Ihe two remaining bills of the series provided for the extension ol the limitation of the period within which actions in debt, simple contract, rent in arrears, detinue, replevin, trespass, injuries to real or personal property, illegal arrest and false imprisonment, or for violations of those sections of the Bill of Rights referred to in the Code could be brought to, trom one to three years; and for the serving of the writ when resistance or obstructions of any kind are ottered to the ollicer. The three bills were immediately sent to the Senate, where they will probably be early acted upon and passed into laws. Mr. Mclntire assigned as his reason for voting against the measure that they were aimed at olii cers who bad acted under the authority of their superiors, and lie doubtless properly appreciates the object of the bill. It will certainli* render the property of Federal officers in Maryland liable for damages resulting from the the illegal arrests in which they have been instrumental. Messrs. Jones, of Prince George's, and Stake, of Washington county, appeared in their seats to day. Petitions for an adjournment of the Legislature "forthwith sine die" were presented from citizens of Frederick and Allegany counties, and one per contra, from 230 citizens of Frederick city, pray ing the Legislature to continue in se-'sion at least till some indications of peace appeared. Mr. Mclntire proposed a message to the Senate providing for an adjournment sine die to-day at 12 o'clock, which was rejected by a vote of thirty-six to fifteen. The question of adjournment is now under con sideration, but with what likelihood of being soon determined upon I cannot say with certainty. It was partially agreed upon bv the joint committee appointed for that purpose to adjourn on Friday until July the 23d, but I learn that they have since receded from that agreement. To-morrow it is probable the debate upon the re solutions of Mr. Dennis, of .Somerset, will be re sumed. How COTTON AFFECTS LITERATURE. —The New York Express quotes the following: The London Critic, in a notice of Mrs. 11. 15. Stowe's "Pearl of Orr's Island," is ungallant enough to say that "Mrs. Stowe's forte we conceive to be niggers—pious and impossible niggers." And then adds: Tne English literati, as well as the English hu manitarians and politicians, are thus, one after the other, giving the cold shoulder to our American Abolitionists, who have, all along, been putting their trust in them. It was bad enough to have Lord Brougham tell them, the other day, to "hush up"—but to have even the Beechers snubbed by the Critic —an original admirer of Uncle Tom is the unkindest cut of all. We expect, er • long, to learn that Stafford House has passed resolutions against Wendell Phillips, Wm. Lloyd Garrison, and the Anti-Slavery Standard, —all "pets" of the Eng lish Abolitionists until "Cotton" was in danger. CAPTURES. —On Saturday morning, a party af se cession soldiers were captured by a squad of the 69th, near Camp Cochrane, who had gone out on a foraging expedition. One of the captured ones is a brother to Jackson, who killed Ellsworth. Two secession soldiers were also captured by the picket guard of the Michigan Kegiment, yesterday morn ing. The secessionists tired on the pickets, thereby disclosing their position, and were instantly nabbed. One of them is Lieut. Fleming, ot the Letcher Guard, and the other private Samuel Green, of the Goochland Light Guard. The Alexandria pickets Saturday night took two cavalry soldiers of the se cession forces, who rode inside the lines. They were in uniform and well armed, and were confined in the Marshall House. These two men are sup posed to be Major W. 1). Nutt, late of the United States Treasurer's Oflice, and George C. Jackson, late messenger in the First Comptroller's Office. Washington Star. MARINE INSURANCE IN NEW YORK. —The New Y'ork Board of Underwriters have adopted the fol lowing rates: To and from all ports in Europe, including ports in the Mediterranean, 2% per cent. To and from all ports in the West Indies, Mexico, Central and South America, India, China, Africa and ports on the Pacific, 5 per cent. '1 hese rates are additional to the premium for sea risks (which is from V/< to 1% per cent.), to cover the war risks. It will be noticed that Havana, San Francisco and other Pacific ports come under the highest rate. THE RAGE FOR ELLSWORTH RELICS. —The rage for relics of departed heroes is frequently carried to a ridiculous excess. The flag which Col. Ellsworth seized and carried, the oil cloth on which he fell, and other things, have been divided, and the pieces are carelullr preserved by curiosity hunters. A resident of Patterson, N. J., boasts of possessing and exhibiting a piece of cheese which the Colonel had in his haversack! This has been divided into a dozen parts and given to as many persons.— Northern Exchange. The Ringgold Guards have left Memphis for Vir ginia. PRICE TWO CENTS SorrimiN BANK CONVENTION—A Hank Congress of the Southern States wa< held at Atlanta <>n" the 3d int.

Y.— A meeting of the Democracy of the town of Haleott, and vicinity, was held in said town, May 30-h, 1861, at which great enthusiasm prevailed. The com mittee on resolutions reported the following, which were unanimously adopted and loudly cheered: WHEREAS, Our once happy country is now plunged into a civil war unnecessarily, without an eff-rt being made on the part of the executive of the United States to set tle the causes of differences by peaceable compromise therefore. Resolved. By the Democracy nf Hilcott, and vieinitv that we regard a sanguinary civil wtr as the worst ofali possible means to be employed in the settlement of our difficulties. Resolved, That a peaceable separation of the States though much to be deplored, is far preferable to a fnrcibh Union, when harmony and fraternal feeling cannot b maintained. • Resolvedi That we love our country and are in favor of the I nion as it once existed, and that we humhly trust Congress may devise a peaceful compromise, bv which may he brought about a speedy and happy termination of our difficulties. Rcsolwd, That as lovers of our country and country men we do not feel willing to take up arms and shed fra ternal blood unless our homes are invaded. Rtsolvtd , That while as Democrats and patriots we be lieve it to be our duty to support and maintain the Gov- ernment in every emergency, y.-t we want Republicans, so culled, to distinctly understand that we will not .and cannot be dragooned into the support of abolitionism in any form. AFFAIRS AT TIIK SOOTH. — We have convers A with a gentleman who lelt Alabama on the sth inst., and came directly to this city with his wife, via Nashville, Cincinnati, Buffalo, &c. Tbev had no passport or ''certificate of good character," nor was any demanded. No questions were asked, and no baggage examined; nor were they molested in any way. Our informant makes the u=ua! report of unbounded enthusiasm among the Southern peo ple; the active enlistment of troops; their belief that the Union is irretrievably gone; and of their determination to carry the revolution to a success ful termination or perish in the attempt. Stories of drafting or conscription are all moonshine.— More troops have volunteered than are yet requir ed, and are impatiently waiting to match. The proportion of volunteers to the population of some towns is very large. One town of UIOO people sends 200 men. Home Guards are common, and in some sparsely settled districts are mounted. There is no fear of insurrection on the part of the saves, but precautionary measures are deemed prudent. Many negn es beg to enlist.—AT. Y. Journal of Commerce. NEWPORT-NEWS I'OINT. —The origination of the name of this point is thus explained: The early colony on James' river was at one time reduced to a straitened condition, and some of its members started down the James river, with tiie intention of proceeding to England. They reached the bend in the river which is at present an object of interest, and paused for some days. When they were about to set saii, they saw a ship coming up the roads bearing the iiritish ensign. They delay ed till it should arrivp. It proved to be lord .New port 8 ship, with his Lordship on board, who brought the intelligence that the ship which the colony had long before dispatched to England for supplies, and which was many months overdue, was near at band, b. inging much needed relief. Mean time, his Lordship distributed provisions among the colonists, who, from these circumstances, named the place "Newport-News," on account uf the good tidings which his lordship brought to them. IHE BILLY WILSON ZOUAVES.—HOW they are kept in the service. The Past of New York says : Wilson's Zouaves are not quite readv to d part. There is a considerable number of raw recruits among thi m, and some of the men are nnt yet uni- I t med. It is thought they will go in a day or two.
