Preston, a private in the 17th U. S. Infantry, stationed at Fort Preble, belonging in Ilenton, Frances L. Pres ton, his wife, Joseph Cobh of Cape Elizabeth, aged ten years. Barbara B. Cobb, aged twelve years, Benjamin L. Preston, aged about twelve years, and J alia A. Deraid, aged about twelve years, started from Cape Elizabeth in a lap streak boat with one sail, to go to Hog Island. As the wind blew very fresh, the boat shipped water, and when between Half-Way Hock and Hog Island, no one seeming to understand how the boat should be managed, she went under. Mr. Preston and his wife. Barbara Cobb and J uiia Derald were drowned. The The last that was seen of Preston he was mak ing for his wife, whose clothing buoyed her out of the water. The Preston and Cobh boys went down with the boat, but as she righted nnd floated, the Preston boy got on board and pulled the Cobb boy iuto the boat. He then commenced baiting the boat, and had succeeded in getting part of the water out, when he sank down insensible. The schooner Mountain Fawn, Capt. Sylvanus Gammagc, of Bristol, was informed of the accident by a boat which had seen the disaster, but which was unable to afford any assistance. Capt, Gam mage immediately run down and took the boat in tow. He found the Preston and Cobb boys on board insensible. Measures were taken for their recovery, which proved suc cessful in Preston’s case, but which were una vailing as to Cobb. Young Preston says that just before he fainted he saw Cobb sitting up in the boat. Coroner Hall will hold an inquest this morning at Cape Elizabeth upon the body of young Cobb. The other bodies have not been recovered. Mrs. Preston, Joseph Cobb and Barbara E. Cobb were children of Morris K. Cobb of Cape Elizabeth, and Julia A. Derald was a grand daughter. This is a sad blow—three children, a grand-daughter and a son-in-law taken thus suddenly away. It is just about a year since that a like mel ancholy circumstance occurred, by which six of our Portland citizens lost their lives. 22d Maine.—The 22d Maine Regiment left Bangor at 12.45 P. M. yesterday, and ar rived here at 8.30 P. M. The train proceeded directly to the Boston depot, where the sol diers changed cars, and about half-|>ast 10 o’clock proceeded to Boston over the upper route. There was a large crowd of men and women at the depot, many of whom provided themselves with refreshments, which were handed to the soldiers. As the train started, rousing eheers were given to the gallant fel lows, which were answered in the heartiest manner by them. The regiment musters about 930 men, in cluding Field, Staff and Line officers. About 850 came through last night. The men look robust and healthy. They are from Bangor and the eastern part of the State. They are furnished with the old altered flint lock mus kets, at which they grumble some, but hope to obtain a better article when they reach Wash ington. The following is the roll of Field and Staff officers: Colonel—Simon G. Jerrard, Levant. Lieut. Colonel—Olonzo G. Putnatn, Dover. Majoi—Joint O. Brackett, Palmyra. Adjutant—Frank G. Flagg, Hampden. Quartermaster—Lyman C. Bailey, Calais. Surgeon—Josiah Jordan, Dover. Assistant Surgeons—Jason Uuckins, Le vant; John W. Cook, Dover. Chaplain—John K. Lincoln, Bangor. Sergeant Mryor—Roscoe G. Rollius, Ban gor. Quartermaster Sergeant—Martin E. Young, Keuduskeag. Commissary Sergeant—John W. Knowles, Hampden. Hospital Steward—Eugene B. Sanborn, Ma cbiasport. Drum Major—George W. Clark, Newport. Fife Major—George W. Grant. A Rush.—The notice that the Collector of this port would, at 4 o'clock yesterday after noon, distribute an amount of the postal cur rency, attracted a great crowd at the Custom House. The entries and stairway were packed with human beings, each anxious to obtain entrance. A police force, stationed at the door, kept the crowd outside. They were ad mitted as fast as the packages could be deliv ered at two places of delivery. In Hlleen minutes the Collector had paid out all that he had reserved for that purpose, the balance having been furnished the banks. Some per sons tried to come the dodge game, and thus get two packages, but the plan was frustrated. We understand Collector Jewett intends to make application for another amount for this city and vicinity. Afflicting Intelligence.—A telegram from Major Mann, in Washington on Monday, fi.nnntinpf>fi fill* «ad none that \fr IT w. house, Quartermaster of the 17th Maine Regi ment, was dangerously ill, and in a critical condition. The wife and mother of Mr. IV. left for Washington Monday afternoon. Yes terday morning another despatch was re ceived, representing the case as hopeless. It will sadden the hearts of all who were ac quainted with Mr. Waterhouse to hear of his death. No further intelligence had been re ceived up to 12 o’clock last night. Ci.ebical.—At a meeting of the State street Parish, Monday evening, a request was received from the pastor, Rev. George Leon Walker, for a vacation of three months, his physician having advised him to abstain from preaching for the present. The society unan imously voted to grant him three months ale seuce, to continue his salary, and to supply tho pulpit during his absence.

FROM WASHINGTON. GEN. SCOTT’S POSITION. Order by the President. Decisions by Commissioner Boutwell. % Washington, Oct. 21. Early in 1801, when the civil war seemed ! pending, but Imd not actually broken out,Gen. I Scott wrote two papers containing his views, ' professional and political,on the crisis, ami the rights and duties which devolved on the gov ernment in the momentous conjuncture. One of them lias recently been published without tlie writer’s consent. The second appears to day. having been furnished to the press by himself. It establishes in the first place, the patriotic anxiety of the gcneral-In-chief to prepare for the coming storm, and his earnest ana repeated eflbits to prevail on the govern ment to garrison and secure the Southern | forts against every possible attack, ami dis closes in the second place the causes of his ! failure, which it is now evident resulted from j the indecision of President Buchanan, who j was doubtless misled by treachery in the Sec j retary of War, if not in other members of the : cabinet, In whom the head of the government j reposed a misplaced confidence. The President has appointed Hon. Andrew I B. Dickerson to be Marshal of the Northern ' District of New York. Hon. Thus. H. Clay } of Kentucky lias been appointed Minister res ident at Nicaragua, in place of Mr. Dickerson. Commander Bslcll ha> been appointed by the Navy Department to the Pawnee. Capt. I Gilles lias been appointed to steam sloop Os»i j pee. Lieut. Commander Gillis has been or | dered to the steamer Commodore Perry. Lieut. vumiiiaiKici ibuiui iia^ m-rii ID uic steamer Commodore McDonougb. Executive Mansion, I Washington, Oct. 20, 1802. j It is hereby ordered that all persons who may have actually been dialled into the militia service of the United States, and who may claim exemption on account of alienage, will make application therefor directly to the De partment of State, or through their respective Ministers or Consuls. (Signed) Abraham Lincoln. By the President. W. II. Seward, Secretary of State. War Dep artment, I Washington, Oet. 20, 1802. ( Pursuant to the above order, the proper officers are directed to report to the Depart ment of State the cases to which the orders refer. Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue has made the following decisions:—1st. Alcohol manufactured from whiskey, distilled prior to Sept. 1st, and on which a tax has not been paid, will be subject to a duty of 3 per cent, ad valorem. 2d. A regularly licensed auctioneer can sell in his own store the goods of any dealer, but he cannot sell the goods, w ares, Ac., of any unlicensed dealer w ho is subject to a license tax in his (the dealer's) place of business without being subject to the penalty. An auctioneer can sell such goods as are not usually included in the stocks of dealers, wherever such goods may be situated, w ithout taking a special license therefor. 3d. Section 77 in speaking of any persons ow ning, possessing or keeping any carriage, yacht or billiard table, is to be interpreted as referring to three different classes of owners, viz: such as jiossess any carriage, and as a second class such as possess any yacht, and as j a third class such as possess any billiard table. There is nothing in the wording of the law referring to plate that would lead to the inl'er i enee that the tax upon It is to be made contin gent upon the keeping of a carriage, yacht or billiard table. FROM KENTUCKY. RELEASE OF GENERAL DAVIS. Gen. Morgan's Movements. Capture of Federal Mail Matter. Louisville,, Oct. 21,11.30 P. M. Gen. Jeff. C. Davis, who killed Gen. Nelson, hits been released from arrest, and ordered to report for duty at Cincinnati, and left here this evening. Gen. Dumont passed through here this eve ning en route for Indianapolis. One hundred and tiftv reliel prisoners from Frnnklort and Lexington, and 300 parolled Federal prisoners from Cox's Creek, have ar rived here. They lelt at 3 o’clock Monday morning, and up to 2 o'clock this afternoon had nothing to cat. Morgan having destroyed all the captured provisions that he could not j cany away. Morgan’s men changed clothes with many of our prisoners. This band are said now to be clothed in Federal uniforms. Doubtful rumors say that the bridges over Bolling Fork and Bacon Creek have been de stroyed by the rebels. Eight Commissioners sent by the Chicago Sanitary Commission, who were captured near Cox’s Creek, have arrived here. Morgan's men took all their supplies. On Monday morning the rebels at Cox’s Creek captured ('apt. T. B. St rvis, Postmaster of Gen. Woods division, with all his mail, con taining several thousand letters. They took out the money therein and destroyed the let ters. Lieut*. Neff, 4th Ohio cavalry, and Choate, 5th Ohio cavalry,have arrived en route north ward. They were captured near Bardstown, on Monday, and parolled, while proceeding to join their respective regiments, after having been out on Government service. Lieut. Choate had two commissions from Gov. Todd for transmission, one of which was ! for Col. Anderson, 0th Ohio infantry, on the hark of which Morgan endorsed, “Approved. John H. Morgan. Oct. 20tb, 18(12.” These gentlemen say that Morgan's men en tered Elizabethtown on Monday, and broke open the Post office, and were then driven out by two Federal regiments. His force is at ! Lebanon. *-27 111 MAINE REGIMENT. RIOT IX HIDE PARK. LOXDOX. Abolition of Slavery in the Dutch WeBt Indies. New York, Oct. 21. The 27th Maine regiment. Col. Tapley, ar : rived at Jersey City early this morning, where j a hot breakfast was furnished by Col. Howe j I and Major Brown of the New England Rooms, j and left at 10.30 for Washington, in charge of | Superintendent Woodruff. | The steamship City of Manchester, from j : Liverpool 7th, arrived this evening. Her l ] news has been mainly anticipated by the Ba- j varia. A disgraceful riot occurred in Hyde i’ark. London, on Sunday, the 6th inst., which j lasted two hours. There were 100,000 persons ! present, and at least gooo were engaged in the j melee, including several hundred soldiers off j i duty. The Irish were at last overpowered by the English. The law for the alsilition of ! slavery in the Dutch West Indies in July next, j passed tlie States Generals of Holland by a vote of 45 to 7. Capture of Rebel Cavalry. Headquarters Army Potomac, ) October 21st, Evening. ) An expedition started from Gen. Slocum's command this morning, for the purpose of in tercepting and capturing a force of rebel cav alry under Copt. Dug, who were foraging near Lovettsville, Loudon County, Va. It was in every res|iect successful, but the details are not known. We took thirty two prisoners, among whom was the Captain, and killed ten of tlie enemy. Our loss was one man killed j and four wounded. The rebel company was an independent one, raised in Loudon County. Mrs. Gen. McClellan and Mrs. Gen. Marcy, having finished their visit to the army of the Potomac, left for Washington to-day. FROM FORTRESS MONROE. Items from Richmond Papers. Fortress Monroe. Oct. 20. The steamer Commodore arrived to-day frem Aiken's Lauding, bringing down over 600 parolled Union prisoners, many of whom came recently from Macon, Ga., and were cap tured at Cedar Mountain. There were but a few officers. Among the latter is Arthur E. Jordan of the 10th Maine. The most of the 600 will be sent to Annapolis. The Richmond Dispatch of the 18th says’:— From the remarkable consistency of the three reports published by us yesterday, it seems that our forces under Gen. Bragg have gained a great victosy over Gen. Buell’s. Our loss was 5000. Tlte present position of our anny is not known, but doubtless they are in pur suit of the enemy. The Hon. VV. H. Field, formerly of Kentuc ky, was murdered in Missouri by the federal soldiers. The Dispatch also says: A number of sick soldiers arrived in Richmond yesterday, on the Central railroad. Included in the number was some of those wounded by the railroad acci dent at Charlottevilie on Wednesday last, by which over 40 were killed and wounded. The Examiner of the 18th, says: We have some intelligent advices from our army in Northern Virginia, but as they refer to antici pated movements, we suppress that portion of them. Our lines are quiet. The enemy are still at Harper's Ferry. The federals on Wednesday last were destroying the railroad betweeen Charlestown and Winchester. All the news from our army is burdened with the complaints of the wretched and sh&tueful ar rangements for the sick and wounded. The fault is not with the subordinates, but lies at tlte door of the medical director. The ill treatment of our sick and wounded is a crying abuse. Nothing dampens the ardor of our soldiers so much. It demoralizes the service, and disgraces humanity, the government and our officers in the field. It is a fact that none of our generals except Beauregard has ever visited one of our hospitals. Reports from Winchester say that General Stuart is on another foray, and that a cavalry fight occurred at Charlestown on Thursday last, of which no particulars have been re ceived. The commissary department is the most corrupt branch of this government. Tlte system of contracts by this bureau, and the fashion which all of Mr. Northrup’s assistant commissioners seem to have of leading that official by tlte nose, have given rise to specu lations on the army, ami tlte country will be found when fully developed, to rival the cor ruption of the Washington government. Gen. Pemberton w ho lias been appointed to supersede Vail Dorn, and has recently been put ill command of the department of the Mississippi, belonged to the yankee army in the spring ol 1861. He was in command at the Biege of James Island, Charleston, S. C., and has a reputation lor a large share of caution. The Yankees scarcelv know what to make ol Milans dash into l enusylvama. It was bold ami daring. The Enquirer also says, the fight in Ken tucky continued three days, the 7th, 8th and 9th. llragg was successful each day, captur ing many guns and over 10,000 prisoners, be sides kiliing and wounding many. We have heard of no Geueral officers having been killed, The drafting of negroes for military service is strongly recommended by the Richmond papers. The Enquirer says, our exchanges speak with great anxiety of the prospect of an at tack upon Mobile by the enemy, which attack might involve important consequences, as the capture of this point would give the enemy immediate possession ol the Alabama and Tomliigliee rivers. A march of the enemy into the interior of Alabama would succeed in cutting the Confederacy more completely in two than the enemy could hope to do by the possession of the Mississippi river, throughout its entire length, as it would destroy the line of communication now passing through Mont gomery, which has been of incalculable benefit to tlie people of the entire South. Correspondence between Gen. Holmes and Gen. Can. Capture or a Rebel Lieut. Colonel. Serenade to General Fremont. St. Louis, Oct. 21. Dispatches received at headquarters, from Helena, Ark., to the 17th inst., report all quiet, and tile fortifications nearly completed.. The rebel Gen. Holmes had sent to General Carr, under a Hag of truce, a communication falsely assuming that the U. S. government or its generals had been engaged in arming ne groes in Arkansas, to which course General Holmes entered an emphatic protest. General Carr promptly responded, telling him that neither the government nor its agents had nr i.ed negroes; on the contrary the federal troops have been employed in disarming the negroes, and while so employed were attacked and a portion of them captured by guerillas. Gen. Carr adds: Whatever may be the policy of my commanding officer anil the goveru int nt, I shall cheerfully follow it out. In a skirmish on the lltli, twelve miles west of Helena, the national forces captured the Lieut. Col. of the 21st. Texas regiment and 12 privates. The enemy’s furtherloss is unknown. Maj. Rector of tiie 4th Iowa, was taken prisoner, and we had 4 killed, (i wounded and 14 missing. The friends of Gen. Fremont last night wel comed his return to this city, in a grand sere nade. From four to five thousand people were present and the reception was in every respect cordial and enthusiastic. In response to re peated calls, the General made a few remarks, referring to his former visit to this city,stating that the principal object of his visit now was to be present at the trial of a friend and fellow soidier, Gen. McKiustry, believing as lie did that the assaults upon him were made solely because lie felt it an honorable duty to stand by the side of his chief. Beltel attack on Kiver Steamers. EEINFOECEMENT OF GEN, PEIOE. Rumored Capture of Island No, Ten. Cairo, Oet. 21. Tin- steamer Colonetta was lired into by the rebels oil Saturday morning, thirty miles be yond Memphis and one person wounded. This evening the steamer Gladiator was at tacked by a baud of rebels, while loading cot ton twenty-live miles below Memphis,and two persons killed and sevon wounded. The rebels then lired the boat but the Haines were extin guished without doing much damage. The rebels continue to burn cotton in the neighbor hood of Memphis. It is said that Price has lw*en reinforced re cently by 15,000 Texans, and more are arriving daily. A steamer from Commerce reports all quiet there. The rebelssacked tile townund carried oil $50,000 worth of goods and a number ol horses. A report is in circulation to-night that the rebels have attacked and captured Island No. 10. Tlie report is not traceable to any reliable source. Dispersion of Quertllas. Hudson, Mo., Oet. 20. Maj. Woodford of tlie 10th cavalry Missouri State militia attacked a band of guerillas on Auxoois river, dispersing them, killing and wounding several and capturing arms, ammu nition, blankets and horses. Tlie large camp in the vicinity ol Portland was broken tip. Maj. Gates of Adair County reports that Capts. S. burr and Smith came suddenly upon Dennis’ band of thieves, killing and wounding some 20, and capturing 11 prisoners, 20 horses arms, Ac. Gen. Guitar has captured several guerilla leaders near Columbia, Boone county. From California. San Francisco, Oet. 21. Steamer St. Louis, lias sailed for Panama witli 400 passengers and $700,000 in treason for New York, and $470,000 for England. Henry Hamilton, editor of the Los Angelo; Star, has been brought to this city liy the U S. Marshal, and eoulined in Fort Alcatras, foi disloyal publication. Between three and four inches of rain hai recently fallen at Los Angelos, doing grea damage to the grain crop, which was unusual ly large this year. The Turf. Philadelphia, Oct. 21. At tlie Suffolk Park Course to-day, the post stake, a purse of £ 1,400, three mile heats, was contended for wit It the annexed result: Idle wild. five years old, won the first heat by two lengths; "time 5.45. Blackbird, three years old, was second. Blanche third and Wagram fourth. Idlewild won the second heat by three-tourtlis of a length over Blackbird.— Botli horses were severely punished. Ava lanche third, and Wagram distanced. Time 5,35 1-2. This is the fastest second three mile heat recorded, except those of Arrow in 5.28 and Little Flea in 5.35, feather weights, at New Orleans.

They threw shells over the vessel al ter it was more than lour miles off shore. ' Is slavery—the ownership of one man by another—right oris it wrong? If wrong,cau it be right to justify and defend it? If it is not right, can it be wrong to say so? Can it be wrong to desire the triumph of right? Cassius M. day in a recent speech in Brooklyn, said to the workingmen: ‘‘Show me tbe mau who would to-day oppress a man on account of bis color, and I will show you a man who w ill, should it meet his end, oppress you to-morrow.” jy Commissioner Boutwell has decided that an apothecary who sells ardent spirits by retail must have a retail liquor dealer's license. If, however, he only uses it in the compound ing of medicines, it is not necessary that he should take a license as a retail liquor dealer. Revenue Decision.—Mr. Allen L. Howe, livery stable keeper of Dedham, having written to Commissioner Boutwell in respect to the tax on coaches, has been informed that “ it was clearly the intention to tax each carriage of a livery stable keeper separately, and irre spective of his license.” Hon. J. R. Giddings, w ho from his con sular }H)silion in Canada, lias good opportuni ty of observing the current of public sentiment there,says that since the President’s proclama tion appeared the people of the province have turned around in favor of the North, with the exception of the small cliques of secession sym pathizers in a few of tbe principal towns and cities. IW~ Price is said to have acknowledged to citizens along his line of retreat that out of 30,000 troops with which he went into action he has hardly 3000 left. The balance are either killed, wounded or taken prisoners.— The victory at Corinth is by all odds the most complete and decisive of the campaign, and re flects the greatest credit upou the officers and men who have united to bring it about. ~ A dispatch to the Journal says the Na tional Intelligencer publishes a second letter fVotn Gen. Scott, which justifies him against any suspicion of disaffection in connection w ith the letter read by John Van Buron at tlie New York meeting. The Intelligencer also states that the publication of that letter was unauthorized by Gen. Scott. J1P" The Vatican is a pile of buildings cov ering a space 1,200 feet in length, and 1,000 in breadth, on one of the seven hills of Rome.— The site was once the garden of barbarous Nero. Early in the ltith century, the Bishop of Rome erected there an humble dwelling.— This lias been added to by one Pope after an other, until it is now one of the most spacious and magnificent palaces, stocked with paint ings, statues, books and antiquities of the rarest kind. The following item from the New York correspondent of the London Times, shows what kind of information is communicated to the readers of that veracious Journal. Refer ring to President Lincoln, he says: In every newspaper his resignation or abdi cation is debated us if it were a matter of course, some op|>osiiig, some recommending, but none seeming to think there is the least impropriety in discussing it. Suicide.—The w ife of Mr. J. Newman, at Gary's Mills, in Houlton, committed suicide on Wednesday at midnight, by drowning in the mill-pond near his residence. She was missed shortly alter leaving home, immediate search was made, w hen she w as discovered soon after floating in the tnill-pond, her clothes protect ing tlie body from sinking. She leaves a hus band and several children,one an infant. Partial insanity, we learn, is assigned as the cause of uie suieiue.—[uouiton limes. A correspondent of the New York Tribune is permitted to state upon the author ity of a gentlemnn holding pesronal relations with Gen. Ilalleck, that the latter approves the proclamation of President Lincoln. He says: “Gen. Halleck says that in a military aspect, he has no doubt on the question since the reliellion assumed, its present formidable proportion, aud has never wavered from the belief, that if we would conquer the South, its | black labor must be taken from it.” The N. York Commercial says that no necessity exists for concealing the fact that an expedition is now preparing to operate against one or more Southern ports. The rendezvous has already been occupied by a fleet of ves sels, the presence of which, within view of the rebel signal posts, will reveal the strength of the intended demonstration. The expedition, whatever its destination, will be commanded by naval heroes of acknowledged ability. It will be stronger in point of armament and class of ships than any fleet which has embarked on an offensive movement. SKowitF.fiax Horse Show.—The “Mail” says that the exhibition of horses at Skowlte gan, Tuesday and Wednesday, Mr. Lang’s horse. “Gen. Knox,” took the sweepstakes, (fcoOO.) making a half mile in 1:15 and a mile tit 2:35, “and could do lietter.” His Cloudman Horse” took the first premium for horses that had not trotted for money, The three purses for mares anil geldings were taken—1st, by Taylor’s “Lucknow”; 2d, by Pierce’s “Garibal di,” (of Bangor,) and 3d by Savage’s “Gipsey Queen.” The purse for Stallions six years old and under, was taken by Shaw's “Flying Mack ! of Augusta, in a sharp contest with the “Gar land Horse,” of Skowhegan. Mr. Seavey of Waterville, took the 1st premiums on matched horses and on family horse, and I. II. Low of Watcrvlle the 2d on family horse. Taylor of Boston, took the 2d oil matched horses. The Episcopal Church set Right. The General Convention of the Episcopal Church, after a long debate, adopted the reso lutions refering to the rebellion, and reported by the committee of nine. The vote was tak en by dioceses, the clerical vote being, yeas, 13, nays, 7; the lay vote, yeas 11, nays, 4. An exchange says great efforts seem to have been made to prevent the passage of the reso lutions. Other sets of resolutions, presented by men known to sympathize with the Rebels, were voted down, and others still,of a strong er character, shared the same fate. Judge Chambers, of Maryland, and four others, wish ed *o have a protest against the resolutions re corded, but failed in the attempt. The Pastoral Letter of the Bishops refers to the change in the condition of the Church and the country, and thus refers to the cause: “That cause is all concentrated In a stupen dous reliellion against the organic law and the constitutional Government of the country, for the dismemberment of our National Union, un der which, confessedly, all parts of the land have signally prospered and been blessed.” The following sentence from the Pastoral Letter doubtless refers to Maj. Gen. Bishop Polk, who has laid aside the sword of the spir it for a more carnal weapon : When the ordained ministers of the Gospel of Christ, whose mission is so emphatically one ot peace and good will, of tenderness aud con solation, do so depart from their sacred calling as to take the sword, and engage in the fierce and bloody conflicts of war—when in so doing they are fighting authorities which,as the pow ers that be, the Scriptures declare are ordained of God, so that in resisting them they are re sisting God—when, especially, one comes out from the exalted spiritual duties of an overseer of the flock of Christ, to exercise high com mand in such awful work—we cannot ourselves, overseers of the same flock, consistently with duty to his Church, ministry, and people, re frain from placing on such examples our strong condemnation.
