MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
United States District Court. IN ADMIKAI-TY, BEFORE TV A HE, J. Thursday—James McArgia, v. George H. Marshall. Libel for wages as 2d Mate of brig Wild Hunter. The libellant claimed that he shipped as 2d mate of the vessel at Halifax, at #18 per month and that lie did not sign any shipping paper, a parole agreement beiug made between the master of the vessel and himself, and that Capt. Marshall promised him his discharge oil the arrival of the vessel at this port. The re spondent alleged that McArgia shipped to go the voyage from Halifax to Demarara, thence to Portland, and thence to Halifax, as a com mon seaman at #10 per month. In proof of this he brings forward the shipping papers, to which libellant's name is affixed with “his mark." Capt. Marshall testified that libellant placed his mark to the shipping papers and it was witnessed. The libellant testified directly to the contrary and for proof that he could • write referred to the libel to which he had sigued his name. J udge Ware decided that the shipping paper in conjunction with the testimony of the Cap tain, was proof that libellant had agreed to go the voyage. The voyage not being concluded the libel must "be dismissed. F. Fox for libel lant. G. H. Marshall and Geo. II. Starr tor respondent. Supreme Judicial Court. OCT. TERM—WALTON, J., PUESIDINO. Thursday—In the divorce case of Sliat tack v. Shaltuck, Judge Shepley concluded his argument for the respondent. Hon. F. O. J. Smith made the argument for libellant.

The court room was thronged during the day to hear the arguments in the case. Municipal Court—Nov. 13. John C. Stickiiey, for attempting to obtain goods from Messrs. W. & C. R. Millikeu, on a false token, was committed to jail, in default of sureties ill the sum of A.'tOO for his nnl ms rn nee at the next term of the S. J. Court. He plead ed not guilty aud waived an examination. Attempt to Obtain Goons Under a False Token.—Ou the 20th of Oct., Messrs. W. A C. R. Miliiken of this city received an order, pur|>orting to be sigued by H. B. Rice A Co., of Etna, for two chests Young Hyson tea. Not having t hat kind of tea on hand they wrote back word to that effect, stating that they would order it if requested. Subseqently another letter came, purporting to be signed by Rice & Co., ordering three chests of best Oolong tea instead of tlujioung Hyson. Be , fore receiving the latter order the Messrs. Mil liken met Mr. Rice in this city, and he, upon being informed of the circumstance of the j first order, said it was a forgery. When the second order came they took measures to have the culprit arrested. Accordingly a bill of the tea was sent by mail, with a request to the Postmaster to arrest the person calling for it. i A notice of the facts was also sent to the De pot Master. The Postmaster neglected to ar rest the man who took the letter containing the bill out of the Post office, but the Depot Master at Etna arrested him when he called for the tea. The fellow proved to be a man named John C. Stickney, who is said to belong in New Hampshire. He made resistence w hen he was arrested, but he was secured and brought to this city, and in the Municipal Court yesterday, was bound over to take his trial at the Supreme Judicial Court. He gave as a reason for his conduct, that on Thanks giving day he was to be married; and wishing ; to make his intended some preseuts, he adopted this course to raise the money. . Mechanics’ Association Debate.—The Library Room was crowded last evening to its utmost extent, to hear the debate upon the President’s proclamation. Many went away unable to obtain entrance.

Mr. Patteu followed in support of it. Mr. Kimball opposed it, and 1 Mr. H. C. Lovell spoke in favor of it. Mr. Nash spoke against it, and Mr. Walton sup ported it. The debate for the evening was ciuseu uy a speecu irum air. r.uiei y m opposi tion to the proclamation. It being understood that several members were desirous of expressing their views, the resolution was laid upon the table to be taken up next Thursday evening.

Foster’s Expedition.—Capture of Hamilton—Our Forces itapidly Ad vancing. New York, Nov. 13. The Herald lias a letter dated aboard the gunboat Hunchback, Hamilton, N. C., 4th, which says: We have just arrived at this place, taking it with a grand cavalry charge and combined gunboat movement. Our land forces left Williamson yesterday afternoon, and encamped lor the night six miles from the town, and moved forward this morning at day light. The enemy is in strong force, and has pre cipitately retreated to Tarboro’. We will seek the earliest opportunity to afford him a tight. The people are greatly alarmed at our ap proach, and tlee from their homes and property. The gunboats have successfully co-operated with us—that is, the Hunchback, lietzel, Sey mour, Valley City and the Perry. The gun boats had a few moments’ engagement with the enemy, as they came up the Roanoke River. General Foster's command had a severe en gagement Sunday night with 3,000 rebel infan try. at a braastwork supported by six pieces of artillery. We killed and wounded sixty of the enemy. Our loss was ten. When we charged into Hamilton, Major Germrd’s battalion of the 3d New York caval ry being i:t advance, we found the roads lead ing from the town covered with wagons con taining the household goods of those hastily leaving the place. Accidentally, Col. Potter, Capt. Wilson, a corporal, a private, and your correspondent, charged into and out of the town, lour miles, and killed oue rebel, wounded two, and took two prisoners, and captured ten pieces. The enemy left this place, adandonlng his earth works, We move in two hours to take Tar boro’ on tlie River. Thu gunboats will co-op erate with us. The North State and some other gunboat had an engagement day before yesterday, on the Tar River. Our marches are made with great rapidity. We expect shortly better and more iui]>orlaut news. War Items from Tennessee. New Yoke, Nov. 13. The following is a special dispatch to a morning paper: Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 12. — Breckinridge sent a flag of truce from Murfreesboro’ late last night, asking for an exchange of lit pri soners. The main rebel force is falling hack to the South, under Polk and Buckner. Bragg lias resumed command, Gen. Joe. Johnston's health being too much impaired for Held ser vice. Gen. Rosecraus has ordered the impressing of rebel negroes for fatigue duty; also the or ganization of a negro pioneer corps on Ins Corinth plan. The rebel Gen. Breckinridge issiek. Union refugees are preparing to return to Murfrees boro'. Preparations are being made to elect repre sentatives to the present Congress from dis tricts in Tennessee on the occupancy of the federal troops. Gov. Johnson will probably soon issue a proclamation to that effect. The reports in Northern papers of the rebels shelling and burning part of Nashville are ut terly unfounded. Groat Frauds on the Government. New Yoke, Nov. 13. It is stated that nearly a million dollars have been fraudulently obtained from the U.S. sub sistence department of this city, within eigh teen months. Two of the parties, named Sol omon Kolinstrow and G. B. Tracy, brokers, have been arrested and sent to Fort LathyeUc. They have been in the habit of purchasing bills in the subsistence department for half and sometimes a fourth of their apparent val ue. Parties were employed to hunt up con tractors, who had subsisted men, and some of the latter were led to sign bills lor subsisting one thousand men, when they laid really pro vided for only one hundred. As many as titty persons are implicated, and quite a number are already iu custody. Mysterious Murder. New Yoke, Nov. 13. The World gives an account of an alleged mysterious murder in the 27th precinct lodg ing house, which has been under investigation belbre the police commission witiiout success in fastening the crime on oue of the three men • charged with being privy thereto. The man murdered was an Englishman named Peter Shields, and it is alleged that he was kicked and thrown down a long lligiit of stairs, from the effects of which he died. Naval. New York, Nov. 13. The steam gunboat Western World, from Port Royal via. Hatteras Inlet, has arrived.— She left at the latter place the gunboats Miami and Chocura, having Rear Admirul Lee on board. _ The Voice ok ax Uxcoxiiitioxal Loy alist from a Border State.—A letter from the Hon. Joseph Holt (who the Demo crats have frequently talked of as their candi date for next President,) appeared in the New War Items from Tennessee. New York, Nov. 13. 1 ork Evening Post ol Monday. It is clear and bold as tlie sound of the rallying trumpet on the battle Held, and tells home truths with out tear or favor towards parties or men, how ever formidable iu numbers or elevated in po sition. It is dated Oct. 25th. Oil the two points, touched upon in the following para graphs, its explicitness deserves special atten tion : An immediate, bold and aggressive move ment upon the enemy—following up every blow struck and gathering the fruits of every victory gaiusd—is what is required for our de liverance. To the accomplishment of this single object the thoughts, the efforts and the prayers of the whole country should be direct ed. If those who are in Irout will not go for ward, the public safety will demand that they be assigned positions in the rear. What are the sensibilities, what the reputation, or what the cherished schemes of any General in the Held, as compared with the life of such a Gov ernment and country as ours? • * • • My laith in all this matter is simple and briefly stated. It is this; For all things that are for the Union—against all things that are against it. I am for the Union as uncondi tionally as I am for protecting my own body, at every cost and hazzard, from the knife of the assassin. No human institution, no earth ly interest, shall ever be by me weighed in the scales against the life of my country. Least of all wilt I aproach with unsaudelled feet, or permit to be thus weighed, an institution, the feeding fountain of whose being—the African slave trade—the laws of my eountry have for more than forty years denounced as a crime worthy of death—a crime not against any par ticular code, of any particular form of civili zation, but a crime against the very race to which we belong. Removal ol Gen. McClellan. The removal of Gen. McClellan occasions little surprise, being regarded as the natural sequence of the Northern elections. “ Irube citity” (we use John Van Bureu’s word,) in tlie conduct of tlie war having been the grea point made by the Democracy, their partia i success on that issue could be construed in in other way than as an indication ot a popula. wish that there should be a change in tliecom maud of our patriotic army. To this wish, th President has cheerfully and patriotically re sponded, and the Democratic party may be a4 sured that they are now to have that “ tnor rigorous" prosecution of the war for whic' they have clamored. Whether they will rel ish it, or not, after they get it, is an other mat ter.—[National Repub. We are Going to light now. Everything indicates that Old Abe has g< tired of strategy. He is going in for liar knocks now. Nearly all our Generals are fight ing men, and we are much mistaken if rela fur does not fly before thirty days. Just loo. at the fighting host. Hooker, Slgel, Grant, Rosecrans, McCieruand, Sheridan, Hurlbot Ord, McCook, Butler, Curtis, Curr and otliei whose names we cannot now recall, are all a . the head of important commands, and the will light. Old fogies are fast being shelved and live fighting men are taking their place-. ’’ ingfleld. (III.) I le t aid. BY TELEGRAPH. TO THE Portland Daily Press. FROM WASHINGTON. Iron-Clads Running the Blockade oil* Charleston a Hoax. NEW YORK HARBOR DEFENCES. Changes, Assignments, Ac. Reported Disaster to the Federal Army a Canard. GENERAL ORDER. Washington, Nov. 13. The story about an alleged iron-clad which run the blockade off Charleston harbor, is traceable here to an event that occurred more than a month ago, uud which was soon alter wurds published. The Flambeau’s rifled guns made no impression upon the blockade runner, simply because none of tbe random shots struck her. The rebel steamer ran by the Flambeau during the night. Much of what Is said about tbe rebels being reinforced with iron-clad vessels from Europe, flnds no continuation at the Navy Department, which is not indifferent to obtaining facts on that subject. Gov. Morgan and Collector Harney arc here in relation to the defences of New York har l>or. It is understood the proper departments have acceded to their request for adequate and immediate protection, and the requisite orders for that purpose have already beeu issued. Lieut. Com. L. II. Newman has beeu de tached from the iron clad steamer Galena, and acting Lieut. James Parker lias beeu ordered to that vessel. Lieuts. John Weydman and U. 11. Sampson have beeu detached from the Pawnee at Philadelphia. Commander Surlori has been detached from the command of tile Florida mid ordered to the command of the Cyane in the Pacitic. Commander S. B. Bia sed has l>eeu detached from tlie command of the Cyane a rill ordered to the navy yard at Mare Island, California. Capt. S. B. Green has been detached Prom that yard and ordered to the Atlantic States. Second assistant En gmeer Boynton lias been ordered to the gun boat Winona. T. W. Drummond has been ap pointed acting Assistant Surgeon in the navy. Applications for masters mate in the navy should be forwarded to the Navy Department, with a statement of their sea service and with recommendations from the captains with wiiotn they have sailed, and also their age. Inquiries have been received here as to al leged disasters to the array of the Potomac, involving the safety of Washington and re capture of Harper's Ferry. Reports of a sim ilar character have prevailed iu Washington during the present week, but they were not considered worthy of serious contradiction, bavifig no truth w hatever tor their foundation. Maj. Uen. Fitz John Porter yesterday issued the following general orders from headquarters 5th army corps, dated camp near Warrenton: By direction of the President of the United States, Maj. Gen. Hooker has been assigned to the command of this corps. It lias been my privilege to lead the little band of regulars, the permanent army of the United (states, inherit ing the names and records the traditions of regiments that have borne the banner of our country through all its wars. It has been my privilege, noble regiments of volunteers com ing from different State-, hut becoming equal ly national, tliougli having the same purpose, the same dangers aid the same sufferings, having shared their perils and privations in tbe camp, in the bivouac, ou the march and in half a score of bloody tic-ids. To theotllcers and men of both classes I address myself.— Tbe confidence which, if 1 may judge by your acts, you have reposed in me, it has been my earnest effort to merit ami requite. Tbe per sonal regard which 1 am proud to feel tiiat you bear toward me, is reciprocated by an ardent affection and a deep respect which time cannot efface. Tbe personal good fortune of each of you will be always a matter ol heart felt interest to me. The professional successes you will attain will be doubly grateful to ine, inasmuch as they will be identified with suc cess of our cause. Among tile most gratify ing of my thoughts of you will be the assur ance that your subordination and loyalty will remain tbe future as in tbe past—firm and steadiest to our country and its authorities.
