The Herald's Havana correspondent says: Breckinridge and party were all near to Jeff. Davis when he was captured, but they managed to elude the national troops, and traveled across the States of Georgia and Florida to the coast, where they secured a small boat, in which they put to sea, and arrived at Cardinas on the 11th inst., after three days and nights being passed almost without eating or sleeping. At Cardinas they were serenaded, and received marked attention from the Spanish Government and people. They expected to remain at Havana for some time. The Herald's Richmond correspondent says that Gen. Gordon was relieved of the command of Norfolk on Monday last. The city is restored to civil rule. His successor is instructed to act merely as military comrn nandant of the post. Columbus, June 22. The Ohio Union State Convention, yes terday, nominated Gen. J. D. Cox for gov ernor, by acclamation. Wasbington, June 22. The President has issued a proclamation providing for a re-organization of Alabama, appointing Lewis E. Parsons provisional Governor. New York, June 22. The Times' Washington special says that Phillip Lee, of Kentucky, John R. Davis, of Tennessee. and James L. Seward, formerly a member of Congress from Georgia, were pardoned to-day. The South Carolina delegation arrived to day and had a pleasant interview with the President, and afterwards with the Secretary of War. The delegation ask that their State be placed upon the same footing as the other wayward sisters, and that a provisional Governor be appointed. The Tribune's Washington special says: It is stated that Ex-Governor Wright, of Indiana, will be tendered the mission to Berlin. The President has rescinded the orders of the Secretary of the Interior, creating a new Board of Examiners for the Kansas branch of the Pacific Railroad. Richmond papers of the 20th contain the following : At the late election,the counties of Accomac and Northampton gave Win. IH. B. Curtis, for Congress, 1,130 majority. For the House of Delegates, Virginia, Thomas Hl. William and Dr. John W. Field were elected. Both are conservatives. Curtis was the Union member of the Virginia Convention, and a conservative and opposed to cunfiaca tion. Tyler is at present united States collector e for the destitute eitizens of Dinwiddie. The , meeting ad pted resolutions prohibiting ne- 7 groes from coming upon their plantations, t except upon business, fixing their pay at five dollars per month, and refusing to em ploy any unless recommended by their pre- I vious employer. While recognizing Pierpont r as Governor, and appreciating his generous a sentiments, they deprecate the constitution s of the State of Virginia as now in force ted for Virginia that has been for Nortfi Carolina. The Commercial's bulletin says: The 2d U. S. Cavalry (colored) uiutinied on board a steamer lying at the wharf in Portsmouth, last Tuesday evening. They took possession of the vessel,. and refused to allow it to leave. The next morning they went ashore armed, and ran rioting through the town. White troops were summoned from various quarters, and Gen. Graham took command of them. They soon overpowered the blacks and drove them aboard the ship. They were disarmed and sent down the bay. The Tribune's special says: Among the vast number of applications for pardon filed at the White House, there is not a single instance in which the applicant does not assert that he opposed the inauguration of the rebellion. Several parties in the South who were acting as postmasters when the war broke out, have reported the amount of their in debtedness and have expressed their desire to liquidate the same. A few have for warded the money. Washington, June 22. Wm. H. Gale and Charles F. Halley have been commissioned as Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of Colorado, and Jacob Houghton as Justice of the Supreme Court of New Mexico. The fleet for the Brazil station, under the command of Admiral Gordon, left Hampton Roads yesterday. The Herald's special, Brownsville 15th, says: Information has been received at the headquarters of Gen. Mejia, at Matamoras, of an engagement which lately took place between the Imperialists and the Liberals, in which the latter were defeated, losing 700 killed and 2,000 prisoners, together with arms aqd ammunition. Negrete is reported to be a prisoner. Callado and Blanco were supposed to have been captured and shot. lGen. Jackson, commanding the colored troops, had reached Texas safely, and had disembarked. New York, June 23. A Washington special to the Herald says.: C Preparations have commenced for muster ing out between 40,000 and 50,000 troops, P' trom the armies of Gens. Meade, Hancock ft ane Logan. About 18,000 of those effective, 8 whose terms of service first expire, will be mustered out from the army of the Potomac d by the regimental organizations. IHancock's veteran command will be re- n duced to 7,000. The Army of Tennessee willl lose fully 15,000. The World's special says that 152,000 P troops,7,000 horses,and 3,000,000,000 pounds of baggage have been transported from this ' city by railroad since the grand reviews were Three assassinations of Union men have occurred in the vicinity of Alexandria within a week past. The Herald's special says: Gen. Butler's friends are presenting his name for the mil itary governorship of South Carolina, in case he should fail in obtaining the civil one of Idaho. There will probably be considerable delay in the appointment of aprovisional governor for South Carolina. The delegation here do not all represent the Unionists of the State. The State is at present without laws, its cit [ isens are completely humbled, and a fearful e proportion of them literally destitute of all * means of support, are starving. All man ner of lawlessness and crime is alarmingly on the increase. The only hope for publio or private virtue is admitted to lie m the protection of Federal law. Philadelphia, June 23. Rear Admiral Dupont died in this city this morning. Washington, June 23. The Navy Department has just received official dispatches from Admiral Thatcher, dated Galveston 8th, reporting that on the first of this month, Gen. Brown, command ing the U. S. forces, occupied and garrisoned Brownsville. On the 2d of June, the rebel Gene. Kirby Smith and Magruder met, in the harbor at Galveston, Gen. A. J. Smith, representing Maj.-Gen. Canby. Gen. Kirby Smith then and there signed the terms of surrender pre viously agreed upon atNei Orleans. On the 5th of June, full and formal possession of Galveston was delivered to the United States forces, and the flag of the Union was raised. On the 8th of June, Admiral Thatcher went ashore and was cordially received by the rebel naval and military authorities, who requested a part of the U. S. naval forces to remain there for their pro teotion. tialveston s18 oeore inis time Lroungiy gar. I risoned by the United States forces sent for ward by Gen. Canby. Gen. Sheridan is also probably there and in position. (Signed) STANTONs. The President, to-day, has issued a pro clamation raising the blockade west of the 1 Mississippi, and declaring all ports open to foreign commerce the 1st of July next, on the terms set forth in the proclamation of the 22d of May last, but says it is to be an derstood, however, that the blockade now rescinded was international,and was for the purpose of proclaiming the sovereign right of the United States, and the greater or less subversion of civil authority in the region to which it applied, and the impracticability of at once restoring that in due efficiency, may, for a season, make it advisable to em ploy the army and navy of the United States towards carrying the law into effect. The President has directed the Hon. W. P. Dole, Commissioner of Indian Affairs, to proceed to the Indian country, to effect im portant treaties with'the hostile and peace able Indians. In his instructions to Mr. Dole, the President says he deems the pres ent a fitting time for a renewal of the efforts to press upon the Indians the urgent neces sity of abandoning their wild, roving habits, and of adopting the more peaceful and industrious arts of civilized life. There is no longer any region of territory left within the United States where iheir rude habits and mode of life can prevail as formerly. They are being pressed and hemmed in on every side by the advancing settlements of an adventurous and enterprising people. They must, therefore, adapt themselves to the new order of things, and live in peace among themselves and with their white neighbors, or they must inevitably perish.
