TLe recent arrest of his compeer, Ala 'Jbony, has filled the breast of our eotcui -fipmrj with patriotic gppreheusioas for .#ie safety of tl o Constitution. The ar •fppet of traitors, in the view of our co lt mporary, portends great peril to country. Constitutional liberty is tdanger»d by the effort of the Adaiiuis teation to preserve the Constitution and tie Union. The exercise of the power to MLspcnd the writ of ktibeat corpus by the Government is denounced by our outem porary as unconstitutional and void. Such sentiments are peculiar to the #kra class of ValUodighamaaers and Ma iwnyites, but we have never known them to be promulgated by politicians of un doubted loyalty. It is the Vallandighams, the Oldses, the Brights, the Voorhies, the Mahonys and the Clagetta, who hare the special guardianship of the Constitu tion ia these latter days. The great men tad the undoubted patriots of the country ol all parties are so carried away by the fcaatietsm of taring the country, that the business of hunting op the technicalities i of constitutional law and straining than iBto the support and defence of traitors las fallen into the hands of small-beer politicians and pettitogging practitioners of law of the sympathizing persuasion. M*h"ny was arrested for preventing eftliiUaeats.

Such deludod creatures are liable to be lid by him into acts of opposition to the ©overrent, if not into overt acts of treason. All that is said is the Constitution of tlie United States upon the subject of huleat corjm, [g fotlnd clause: in the f0u0wiD "The privilege of Hi« writ of kabra, flQrpus than 1101 U suspended, unless when "f* cus*8 of rebellion or invasion the pub- lie safety may require it Tho Government holds that a proper case has arisen for the suspension of the privilege of the writ. But Ciagett who informs the public that he "has sat on the Bench," 0f a different opinion. That a all. If the Government was pos sessed of sufficient modesty, to consult Ciagett and follow his counsel, it might •are itself an infinite deal of trouble. £^Both the Btate and Congressional Convention* of the opponents of the Ad ministration adopted a platform drawn up »Jd approved by Mahony fe Co.

HAUL-*.—".Nor"wester," the New York correspondent of she Boston Post, in a recent letter makes the follow* Ing allusion to the resignation of Rev. Dr. Hague: The Baptist denomination, and ths Madison Avenue Church particularly, have sustained a loss of no common pro portion* in the resignation by Rev. Dr. fJaguo of his pastorate in this city.— Among the most popular of our pulpit trators, and perhaps second to none as an attractive speaker, in his own ecclesiasti cal connection, Dr. Hague has a host of friends who will rerret 10 hear of the fail ure of his health, which has rendered Compulsory the step he has taken. Par alysis of the brain is, I bolieve, the form 4f disease under which his disability is tlasM'd, and both study and preaching have been forbidden him by his medical advisers. How much ministerial cares, and the peculiar perplexities of hi* posi tion as pastor of an embarrassed church, have had te do with this early withdrawal of so useful and efficient a minister, I know not. But that he has abundant sympathy in his retirement there is evi dence on every hand. We o&oaot a£ord to lope such men. The Confiscation Villi. EDITORS CMIOAGO TRIBUNB occupa- In the meantime, whnt is the tion of the Fed etui legislators? their chief General in shut up in a little patch of ground under the protection of his gunboats, and the President is in vain asking for volunteers to reinforce him, while the reckless policy of the dominant party is urging even the Unionists of the border States into opposition and rousing a spirit of desperate resistance in the Southwest, the two Houses, as they exist at Washington, are engaged in passing what they rail a confiscation bill, devoting to capital punishment eight millions of people! It is impossible to conceive a more impotent display of spite than this piece of legislation, which the Republican party would not consent to modify, even at the instance of Mr. Lincoln. The ides of further embittering an already hopeless struggle by threatening the whole South ern population with death, or five years' imprisonment, could enter only into the minds of the men who were so anxious last year to carry out their political theory by executing a privateer's crew at the certain cost of a bloody reprisal on Fed eral prisoners. At the present time the number of Northern soldiers in the hands of the Confederates probably exceeds tliat of the Confederates who are prisoners at the North, and any attempt to add to the horrors of the war by a aeries of judicial murders would provoke the just retalia tion of the Contederaiee. Happily, it is certain that no ruler will ever dare to put in force this scandalous law. It will only remain a monument of infamy to those who passed it, and be ranked hereafter with the attempted destruction of Charles ton harbor and the savage vagaries of Gen. Butler.—[London Times, July 80th. Hew Klay Bavl4 Ct* a Slav* mt tfca Ka**r as a scsai. :—There is another book of wars which our Generals would do well to study along with Har dee's Tactics. Some of them who have so nearly apotheosized the slaves that they dare not use the sacred thing in warfare, might be relieved in their consciences by an example from Holy Writ. The Amal ekites had invaded Judah, burned the city of S£ i,'lug, and earned the women aud children away captive, among them King David's JKO wives. The King inquired of the Lord and gained permisaion to pur sue the invadet.i with hie army. While on the march he found an Egyptian slave, who had lain three days and three nights upon the field, having been left sick by his master, one of the retreating Amal okites. But so far from turning this de serted slave out of the lines and proclaim ing an "Order No. 3," David gave him bread and water, and figs and raisins, to revive his famished slave, snd then ques tioned him. "Canst thou bring me down to this company And he said, Swear unto me by God, that you will neither kill rae, nor deliver me into tho hands of my mas ter, and 1 will bring thee down to this company. David toot the oath and the slave took them down to the camp of the enemy, who were eating and driukia^ and dancing over their victory and their spoils. And David smote them from morning till night, and not one escaped except four hundred who fled on oamcls The captives and all the ppoila were re gained and the flocks and herds of the enemy were driven off. All of this will be found in the thirtieth chapt. of First Samuel, from which let us learn that the slaves will not join our side iii the great Civil war until we swear unto them that tfmsiU wt return them to their masters. __J.

A private correspondent from London states that Mr. Slide]i has arrived in that city, and already had several interviews with Mr. Mason for the purpose of decid ing which was the best step to take to hasten the recognition of the Southern Confederacy which seems to hive been of late an object of great indiffeiwnce to tho English Cabinet.

Col. Fifield found near the road a lot of flour, stored for the Confed erates which he seized. Contrabands from Gordonsville report continuous arrival of troops from Rich mond. We now occupy the line of the Rapi dan from Raccoon boro on the East to Cooiford on the left with pickets and scouting parties beyond these points. Gen.

New York, Aw?:. 18. raers iiorth Star aud Roanoke, fri»» w«w OrUj»rH», 10th, have arrived, bnugiug particulars of the defeat of the rebels at Baton Rouge and destruction of the Arkansas. A letter from Baton Rouge aays Nim's battery thrice repulsed the foe with great slaughter. Breckinridge lost his right arm by a canm n ball. Fight took place on the edge of town. Gen. Williams be ing unwi.hi.g to expose women and chil dren. We captured a large number of prisoners, including Capt. Blunt, Breck innugc's aid. Gen. Williams, who was killed, behaved like a hero. Enemy's loss muBt have been severe, as our men charged and re-charged upon them. We have taken throe guns. Another account says tho rebel troops wore estimated from five to six thousand, under Gens Lovell and Breckinridge The combat was obatiuste. Our loss in 260 killed, including a large proportion of officers. Rebel loss, according to pris oners' statements, is immense. Among the killed was Gen. Lovell. The lam Arkaiot s was just above Ba ton llonge, but dared not take part in tbc conflict. Later accounts state the Arkansas was aground, when the Essex and other gun boats went to her and set her on firo snd •he blew up. The transport steamer Lewis Whitman run into the gunboat Ow.idaTJiO miles above New Orleans, on the niglt of the 6th, and the transport sunk. She had the body of Gen. Williams, with an es cort of six of bis body-guard, also 42 of ours and 3 Confederate wounded. The body was recovered, and iJK wounded sol jtitrs and «i of the body-guard sared. The official report of Col. Cahill, com menced after the death of Gen. Williams, stated the rebel foroe at about ten regi ments. After a fight of four hours ol groat severity the enemy was repuked. Gen. Williams was killed by a riiie ball through the chest. During the battle our ter of a mile from their aud the enemy were able to temporarily occupy the camp of the 21st Indiana, 7th Vermont and 14th Maine regiments, and destroy much of the baggage and camp equipage. They were, however, driven out, but our numbers being lessened by sickness and the men on tne field being much exhausted by fatigue and heat, it was deemed expedient not to pursue The enemy lias reiired several miles, and is still retiring. 1 am expecting, and it is possible, they may receive reinforce ments, and am disposing of my troops in strongest position. Our force engaged was less than 'J,600. The enemy had at least 6,000, with twelve or fourteen field pieces and some cavalry. The ram Ar kansas approached with the intention of engaging our gunboats, but grounded at a distance of six miles, and to-day (the OthJ was engaged by the Essex aud de stroyed. Brig Gen. Clarke and bis aid, Lieut. Yergcr, delivered themselves to us as prisoners of war. I hava also 30 cap tured. Breckinridge on the Gth asked permis sion, in writing, to bury his dead. Col. Cahill replied: "Our men are engaged io the work, which will soon be accom plished." A passenger from Baton Rouge states that our loss in killed is 70, and wound ed *15. Gen. Williams had three hor ses shot under him, and was killed whilst rallying the 51st Indiana, who bad just lost a field piece. The gun was retaken, but Gen. Williams fell. The wounded are about a follows: 21st Indiana, 81 14tb Maine, 70 4th Wisconsin, 10 6th Michigan, 25 7th Vermont, 15 90th Massachusetts, 12 19th Connecticut, 2. Among the prisoners is Gen. Allen, of Miss., mortally wounded. Among the wounded is Lieut. Col. keith, 21st Indi ana. General Butler issued a general order announoing iu eloquent language the death of Gen. Williams, and also a congratula tory order to troops on their successful engagement, in which he says the enemy lost three Brigadiers in killed, wounded and taken prisoners and many Colonels and field officers. He has more than one thousand in killed and wounded. You have captured three pieces of art.llery, six caissons, two stand of colors aud a large number of prisoners. A letter from liaton Rouge states that the fight between the Essex and Arkan sas was a fair stand up fight- Porter lay 300 yards distant, pouring solid 9-inch shot into the Arkansas till a breach was made, when an incendiary shell was ex ploded in the breach, setting her on fire. The rebel crew left her and she soon ex ploded. The funeral of Gen. Williams took place at New Orleans on the 8th, and was very impressive. It is probable the Gen. Lovell reported killed is Col. Lovel, aud not Major Gen. Mansfield TwK._. ndl"tood J at Richmond. A letter from a Surgeon reports that ssw 83 dead rebels in one small corn field at Baton Rouge. Lieut.

The enemy appeared in foree upon the South bank of the liapidan yesterday.— This morning at sunrise he drove in our pickets to within half a mile of General Sigel's headquarters.

Although the enemy eiossed with two regiments of cavalry and ad vanced boldly, he fell br.ck precipitately on the approach of M:ijor Kechs to the South bank of the liapidan, where he was supported by infantry and artillery. As Major Kechs approached the river the enemy opened artillery upon him and held him there. lioth parties remain facing each other, and it is thought the passage of the Rapidan will be obstinately contested.
