different styles of dramas presented last eve
ning showed. She was ably supported by
Messrs. Beck, Marlowe and Kobson. To-night
the three plays ol “The Comical Countess,”
“The Morning Call” and “The Union Volun
teer” (or a very odd kind of soldiering,) iu ail
of which Miss Keignolds will take promiuent
parts, will be offered for public favor, and such
a bill with such a troupe ought to fill the

sing “When this cruel war is o’er.”

It is reported that an expedition is to be
sent into the interior of Florida.
A British blockade runner, while trying to
get out of Charleston, was discovered on the
night of the 20th, and sunk before she could
gain the bar on her return by the Powhatan.
Her officers and crew are supposed to have
perished. She was a large steamship.
On the 23d another steamer was discovered,

tire, and sunk in the main channel, off Morris
All furloughs have been stopped in Gen.

The following letter from (Jen. Hunter to
Jeff. Davis is published in the Free South of
May 80th:
Headquarter* Department of the South,
Hilton Head, Port ltoyal, April 23, lKii3.—
To Jeff. Davis, Richmond, Va.:—The United
States flag must protect all its defenders,
white, black or yellow. Several negroes in
the employ of the Government in the western
department hart; been cruelly murdered by
your authority and others sold into slavery.
Every outrage of this kind against the laws of
humanity which may take place iu this de
|ruil.iii(.uk .mail UC JUilUWUU U) llie llllllHHllUU;
execution of the rebels of the highest rank in
my possession, man lor tnan. These execu
tions will certainly take place for every one
murdered or sold into a slavery worse than
death. On your authority will rest the re
sponsibility of this barbarous policy, and you
will he held responsible in this world and in
the world to come for all the blood thus shed.
In the month of August last you declared all
those engaged in driving the negroes to tight
for their country to be felons, and directed the
immediate execution of all such as should be
captured. I have given you time enough to
reflect on your folly.
I now give you notice that unless this order
is immediately revoked, I will at once cause
the execution of every rebel officer and every
ruhel slaveholder in my possession. The poor
negro is fighting for liberty in its truest sense,
and Sir. Jefferson has beautifully said, “in
such a war there is no attribute of the Al
mighty which will induce him to fight on the
side of the oppressor.” You say you are fight
ing for liberty. Yes, you are lighting tor lib
erty— lilierty to keep four millions of your fel
low beings in ignorance and degradation!—
Liberty to seperate parents and children, hus
band and wife, brother and sister! Liberty to
steal the products of their labor, exacted w ith
many a cruel lash and bitter tear! Lilierty to
seduce their wires and daughters, and to sell
your own children into bondage! Liberty to
kill these children with impunity when the
murder cannot be proven by one of pure white
blood! This is the kind of lilierty—the lilier
ty to do wrong, which Satan, chief of the fall
en angels, was contending for when lie was
cast into hell.
I have the honor to lie, very resp’y,
Your most obedient servant,
(Signed) I). Huhtek,

Capture of General Ortega and 17,000
The French Mnrehing on-the City of
J?ew York, June 1.
An extra of the Havana Deario of the 26th,
received per steamer Slielldrakc, reports the
arrival at Havana of the French war steamer
Darien from Vera Cruz, with important dis
patches from Gen. Korey, aiiiimineing the oc
cupation of I’uehla by the forces under his
command. The prisoners include Gen. Ortega
and 2d other Generals, 000 minor officers and
17,000 men. It appears that on the 10th Gen.
Korey opened with heavy artillery on Kort
made. The French troops then moved to the
assault,and after a desperate resistance entered
the place, when Gen. Ortega surrendered un
conditionally. On the 20th one division of the
French at my started for the City of Mexico.
On the 8th inst. Gen. Comonfort, who had
received reinforcements, tried to attack the
French in the rear, and Gen. Bazons division
opposed him, resulting in his complete defeat.
The battle took place near San I.urenzo, Oom
onfort losing 2,500 men iu killed, wounded and
prisoners, and seven or eight ritled cannon
and a greater part of his equipments and mu
nitions of war. It appears Comonfort's attack
had for its principal object to lavor the en
trance into l’uebia of a large convoy of pro
visions and ammunition.
Gen. Forey had received in time part of the
heavy- artillery- he expected, and already (on
the 10th) had mounted a battery opposite the
fort of Tolimehuacan, one of the most dread
ed iu Puebla. On the same day the artillery
liegan to tire, and by the 17th a breach had
been made. Forey then commanded an as
sault to be made, but resistance immediately
ceased. Part of the French army then entered
the town, and Ortega surrendered without
resistance, with all his army, including all his
artillery and equipments. There would be left
in Puebla only a necessary garrison to prevent
its being molested by guerrillas, and the rest
of the French forces would march for the cap

does not correspond with the dignity of the

order that the business of the house may lie

Admiral Porter’s Dispatch—No Invasion of
New York, June 1.
The Post publishes the following special
dispatch from Washington:—Admiral Porter’s
dispatch, published this morning, is the latest
received by the Government from Vicksburg.
It is rumored iu the street that Gen. Lee is
moving towards the Shenandoah Valley, but
there is probably no truth iu the report.
The story set afloat of a new invasion of
Kansas by Gen. Price, and the inadequacy of
the national forces to resist it, has no founda
tion. In fact there are 40,1)00 enrolled militia
iu the State of Missouri ready to act. Gens.
Heron's and Blunt's commands are in Kansas
and the Indian county, which amount to nearly
25,000 men, and it is believed they can take of
Price. Fort Gibson is ifts miles or more from
Leavenworth City south, and about 100 miles
west of Little Bock. Neither Kansas nor
Leavenworth is iu danger.
Washington, June 1.
Count Kami! Brans and M. Olivari, tlie cap
tain and first officer of the Lilian frigate San
Girovauna, now lying at Philadelphia, are vis
iting Washington, and accompanied by the
Italian minister, were to-day presented to the

The President to-day pardoned Jacob Var
ney, convicted in the District Court of West
ern Virginia for mail robbery, in April, 1.K152,
and sentenced to imprisonment in the Wash
ington Penitentiary for a period of three years.
Postmaster General Blair, District Attorney
and jurors all joined in the petition for pardon.
He lias a helpless wife and ten children.
The 3d brigade of Pennsylvania volunteers,
Col. Fisher commanding, who have been per
forming guard duty in Washington, joined tlie
headquarters of its division to-night on the
Virginia side. Gen. Crawford will probably
assume command of tlie division to-morrow.
The men were in flue spirits, and cheered as
they passed through our streets, glad to be
again in the field. Capt. A. Niclimorty, who
was with Gen. Morrill in all tlie battles of the
Peninsula in Gen. Crawford's division, is act
ing as Adjutant General and Chief of Staff.
It is believed this favorite division of Penn
sylvania would be increased to its full number
by returned nine months men iftlicyweie
called for.
Tlie municipal election came off to-day.
The present Collector, Kegister, and Surveyor
were re-elected by large majorities. Botli
parties claimed to be Union. Tlie coutest was
not spirited.
Up to 11 o’clock to-night no additional in
telligence had been received from Gen. Grant's
army later than tlie previous dispatches of the
5S8th, when it was stated that Gen. Grant’s
forces progressing as favorably as could lie
expected, and that Grant Imd no fears of the
A report prevailed to-day that the rebels
had appeared at Snicker's Gap, but a geutle

plates a bold movement.
From Vicksburg.
Chicago, June 1.
A special dispatch to the Times, dated
headquarters in field, near Vicksburg, ggd,
says hut little has been effected within tin:
past thirty-six hours. Over 400 pieces field
artillery and several siege guns threw red
shot and shell on tlie enemy's works yester
day. Tlie mortar tleet also took a position
behind l)e Soto Point. Gen. Sherman lias
pushed Steele's division squarely to the foot
of the parapet. Our men lay in & ditch at
the slope of the parapil inside of one of tlie
principal forts unable to take it by storm, but
determined not to retire. Tne federal and
the rebel soldiers are not 25 feet apart, but
both are powerless to inflect much harm.—
Each watches the other, and a dozen of musk
ets are fired as soon as a soldier exposes him
self above the works of either side. Nearly
the same condition of tilings exists in Mc
Pherson’s front. His sharpshooters prevent
tlie working of the enemy’s pieces in one or
two forts. A charge was made yesterday
morning on one of them by Stephensons’
brigade, and was repulsed. To companies of
one regiment got inside. A few got out again
but the most of them were captured.
The forts are filled with infantry. Our
artillery has dismounted a few guns and dam
aged their works in some places, hut they are
still strong.
Gen. McClernard was hard pressed on the
left yesterday, and sent for reinforcements.—
Qtiimby’s division went to his assistance.
The contest continued until seven of our
flags were planted at the foot of the earth
works on the outside of one of the rebel forts,
and kept there for several hours, lint flic fort
was not taken. Mo< Demand’s loss is estimated
at 10,00<> killed and wounded. The lighting
grows more desperate each day.
Transports arc now running to within three
miles of our right.
Gen. Joe Johnston is reported near Big
Black Kivcr in our rear, with reinforcements
for the besieged. Gen. Grant can detail men
enough from his forces here to keep Johnston
in check.

of Vallandigham was repeatedly cheered on
its repetition by the speakers, as was also that
of Gen. McClellan. Resolutions were adopted
declaring tlie arrest ami banishment of Val
landigham a violence, to which the |>coplc will
not and ought not to submit; that Hie remedy
is in flic ballot box at the coining election,
when the State authority will lie restored to

A T a full meeting of the creditors of the late John

tice. the whole subject matter being referred to a
committee of nine duly appointed t>r tnu purpose,
who reported as follows, which report is hereby unan
imously accepted.
From the Protmte Record*.
Whole amount of claims allowed against the
estate, #0,731.42
I Cash. #16i) 00
Goods and chattels. 246 66
Rights and credits. 4.490 15
And further the Prorate Records saith not.
Sufficient, however, is here apparent, that instead
of 20 per cent, the estate should have paid, an*) did
iu reality pay atsmt 851 per cent, less the cost of ad
ministration, ami the furniture (#246 »«6).
Sewell c. Strout. (Howard A Strout)“as counsel
for the Administratrix.” according to his own
account, ha- had all the claims against the estate,
less that of $54.54 at New York, ashioned to him
self for 20 per cent. As evidence that -aid Strout
lia* not paid over 20 p**r cent on #5 676 88 of these
claims, reference is had to tin- following letter, as
constituting part if this report
Portland, March 31. 1862.
Messrs. Smith If St rat ton. \ew ) nrl:
The dividend upou the claims against the estate of
John Rounds is 2>» per cent., amounting upou your
claim to stpi so ) <>u can have the amount hy send
ing an order tor it to any one here. The dividend,
have all been paid out except voura, a long time
since, ami 1 bad forgotten about your claim.
Your* truly, .#. C. Strout.
The Account may be stated thus .
#6.731 42—54 54 is #5,676 88. at 20 per cent, #1,185 38
Goods ami chattels (furniture.Ac.) the Court
allowed the administratrix to retain. 246 66
Cash at sundry times, and Note from Strout
to tin? administratrix, as per his account
in /mrt rendered fo r, 975 00
Amount of the New lurk claim remaining
unsettled, 54 54
#2.411 58
This amouut, $2,41158. taken from th> assets,
#4,896 81, supposing the V York claim of #54 54, to
In* paid in full, show a balance of $2,485 23, less the
cost >f (ulministration, unaccounted for in the
hands of Sewell C. Struct, which of right, to
getht r with the #975 abort set Jbrth, shonhl hare been
juliil to the respective cralitors of said estate.
Your Committee, therefore, upon a full and dis
passionate review of flu* whole matter, arc of opin
ion that hv reason of the misrepresentations of -aid
Strout. all the creditors, except 1» T Chase, have
been cheated out of their just dues, and recommend
to each of them to take sucli legal measures, as the
laws may airord, to compel saia Strout to make good
the dUfeirence between what they severally got, and
w’hat tin* estate should huv •• paid, and w uld have
paid, had the original'entro s on the bools of the Pro
ute Records bet* faithfully carried out.
