moke could be dihtirtctly dii:oi rued over the island
ol Abtao, which indicatoa the approach ol the
Mpnnltih vrsscl by the eastern channel ot the said
itlunri, which is tho widest.
At half past three tho Spanish frigate Blanc ap
peared In the channel rclcrrod to, lollowed closely
by the Villa de Madrid; and when at distance of
about fifteen hundred moires from our line the
. t riirate I commanded opened lire upon them, as also
the other ships a II ro which was answered by the
eremy id a spirited manner, but without being able
to overcome our resistance; aun, at last, loroed by
the damage wh inflicted, went to lake shelter in a
creek situated to the norm of our line, from whence
they maintained a vertical fire. In this position, bad
the Apurimne bcou ab e to move, we should have
issued out in line oi' buttle to cut ofl' their rotreat
most probably with tho most successful result.
Shortly a'tcr the two filiates left the creek, re-
' tiring slowly from the sceno of combat without
ceasing to fire upon our line, which boingr vigorously
responded to, lorccd them to retreat until sheltered
trcm our shot by he northern point of tho Island of
Abtao, which is tho most eluvited.
The enemy counuued their rotreat until, being out
of rango, Ihe firing ceased, whioh had lasted with
out inteiruption two hours, and in which some
t fit teen hundred shots must havo been fired by both
aides,
The daniago suffered by our side is as follows:
The Ajmnmaa received three bails in her hull on
the water line, a sholl, which destroyed bar launch,
which was moored astern, and another which earned
wov her lunnel.
The America received four balls in ber hull, and
- two uioio, which. Ujiug high, cut away tho main
mast shrouds and eomo ringing.

commander ot the Cvvatlonra to keep hii steam
up a recommenuntiou I bad previously made to
the commander of tho Aurimaco ae to avoid
a surprise on tho part ot the Spanish, whom I uua
ginoa to be in sou'hern waters.
'1 he extensive quantity ol ammunition and the dif
ferent dispositions ot an economical character noces
sary to the provisioning and equipment of the divi
sien did not allow me to woigh anchor the following
day; consequently 1 saw myself torood to deter my
departuro until sunrise ot the 7tb, when I proposed
to return having in tow tbo , laden with every
thing re quisite for the squadron. 1 was ready aud
war ing only tbe lido when, at 8-80 A. M , 1 roooived
a o minunication from tho lntoudant informiui me
that tbe Spanish trigatet VUU de Madrid and
Jilanca wore at lluite that is, at a very short dis
tance from the mouth of the C'hacao channel.
Ihrectly 1 received this intelligence I despatched a
boat in charge ot Flag Lieotennnt Walker, with
orders to proceed with all possible speed to the
station and place in the hands of the Peruvian
commander the original communication, informing
him at the same time that I remained at the entrance
of the port of Ancud, waiting an opportunity to
enable me to join the uivLion. To-day I could not
do so, because the two Spanish lnguU'S continued
cruising, both I elore and atur the combat, in the
neighborhood of the Island of Abtao. Neither oouid
I do it by night, because they placed themselves at
the mouth ot the Chacao Channel, one at the north
and the other at the Bouth, with the intention ot sur
prising us, thinking, perhaps, that I should endeavor
to take advantage ol the darkness to attempt to join
tbe allied Fquadron. Ataawn 1 began to return, bat
on arnviutr near Uemolinos 1 was met by Flag Lieu
tenant Wa.ker, announcing to me that the in gates
had not moved iroin thtir positions, which obliged
me to return to Ancud and remain there till 2 A. M,.
when 1 again began my return, which I was enabled
, to elfect without anv mischance.
On my arrival at the station I received the dos-
atcties w inch 1 have tbe honor to transmit to your
xoelloncy, und iroin which you will see that the
two Spanish frigates have beon repuiscd; and ttieir
burned retreat atter sucn a sudden attack suvirests
the inference ot a decided del' ai. as otherwise thoy
would have leturned to the attack,
If the enemy bad not kept at so great a distance
during the combat owing, probably, to ths fear of
tbe battery that deiended the entry with the sus
tained flie, whioh lasted an hour and threo-quarters,
we should have had to deplore many lossos; lout I
have the satislaotion to inform vour Kxoelleuey that
they have been limited to the death of two seamen

February, by order of the Ooverumcnt ot Luna,
were celebrated in honor of those occurrences
wnich, it is claimed, are destlrjed to mark a now
epoch in the history of tho nation. First, tbe
revolution against the imbecile and traitorous
Government ot Pezet, which waa first declared
in Arequipa on tho 2 ;th of February, 18(!5.
becond, the brilliant triumph obtained bv the
allied squadron in the waters of Abtao. Third,
tbe quadruple alliance ot the four republics,
Chili, Peru, Jiquador, and Bolivin.
Again, the rcoort from England that ono or
more vessels had been detained under suspicions
ol a design to enguec in the war aaainst Spain,
together with the report from tbo United States
that Kenor McKenna and Dr. Rogers had. been
arrested upon a charge of violating the "Foreign
Enliotmont Act," has directed the somowhat sur
prised attention of the 1 public here to thu groat
fact that tbe acknowledged merit ot a cause is
not sufficient reason why the sound principles
of law should be aside in its behalf.

Bnmois of an lavasiuiii
Hamilton, C. W., March 81. The whole of
the i:ith Battalion of volunteers, stationed' In
this city, were dismissed Irorn active service
this afternoon. Almost immediately alter wards
an order was received from tbe Adjutant-General's
otlice by Brigade-Major Villiers, callim? out
the entire force ot volunteers in the city, induct
iner the 13th Battalion, the Naval Brigade, and a
field battery, tor 2 o'clock on Monday. Much
speculation and excitement in consequence, but.
no explanation bas yet tratiKpircd. Similar
orders have been transmitted to all commanders
ot military districts throughout tho Proviuce.
Of course, another grand volunteer rally
followed the promulgation of this order. Tbo
members of tbe Thirteenth are jubilant, and
will respond to tho call with alacrity, although
there are no siqns ot the former wild excite
ment. The dancer is not considered imminent,
irorn tbe fact that the volunteers are not or
dered to report until Monday altrrnoon.

the highest gratification to inform you that after

convinced that this department of the Fuhian
Brotherhood has been manaecd with marked
ability and a strict adherence' to constitutional
provisions.
The system originated and successfully carried
out by your Secretary in the issue and" sale ot

created by the Senatorial direction oitho Feniau

Washington, April 1. Ex-Senator Stockton
baa returned irorn Trenton, and reports to his
friends, that he has no prospect of an election
by tbe present Legislature; but it is so arranged
that no election will be had; and a the Gover
nor cannot fill any vacancy occurring while the
Legislature is in session, tbe vacancy will con'
tinue until next winter, when be considers it
certain that there will be a Democratic majority
in both Houses, thus securinef his return. The
Itepublicans are all for Cattell, except Scovol,
who is opposed to tilling the vacancy because he
considers it not fairly" made. Mr. Cattell bas
been a radical for several years. Tne position of
affairs In New Jersey is looked upon with the
greatest interest.

J. N. Free, some woeks
Bince departed for the South; with the decla

J. N. assumed the pressure at Montgomery,
Alabama it was too heavy tor the poople they
couldn't see it from their standpoint, aud pel tod
the "immortal" with rotten eggs, forcing bim to

The sti amer Tripoli left Liverpool on the 20th

The following is a summary of the news taken

In the House of Commons the Irish Attorney

stated that ho apprehended a Feniau invasion.
Several landowners had applied lor permission
-to arm and drill then: tenantry, but the Govern

The London limes directs attention to the

that tbe apprehensions of war between the

Important Protective BUI.
An important bill, denning the rights of na
tional citizenship under the first clause of the
second section of tbe fourth article of the .Con
stitution, and punishing their violation as a
crime, has been prepared by the Hon. Samuel
Siiellabarger, of Ohio, and will, if leave Is ob
tained, be introduced into Congress to-morrow.
The bill is desigecd to throw the protection of
the nation over the loyal men of the South from
other States, who are now being driven from
that section. No law executing that clause in
the Constitution bus ever been passed, because
no overwhelming necessity lor It was felt bolorc
the war.
The tirst sestion declares the rights of national
citizenship to bo the risrht to go through and
into, and to sojourn aud reside, in each State ;
and there to acquire, dispose of, and enjoy pro
tection for person and property, to be exempt
from unurual taxes, etc., and to have equal re
dress in the courts. The second section punishes
the attempt to deprive a citizen of any of these
rights by any manner of intimidation, but with
out violence. The third section punishes with
death a murder committed in the attempt to
deprive the citizen of .the right to go into, or
through, any State, or of his right to abide or do
business therein. The fourth section punishes
as a felony, manslaughter, or great bodily b,arni
inflicted in attempting to deprives pitizen of
any right secured by the bilL The fifth section
confines the benefits of the bill to persons not
criminals and to loyal men.
A Campaign Uoenment.
The Andrew Johnson National Campaign Com.

Freedmcn's Bure.iu bill, his speech ot February

On a recent exhibit of Washington papers
which desired some printing from the City
Councils, the InteUigenar only claimed 3800 daily
circulation. This includes exchanges, the free
list, and what they are temporarily circulating
ireo in hope of gaining patrons. The advertising
received from the Government would probably
pay for its entire edition.

Eflorts will soon be made to repair the Dismal
Swamp Canal, by parties in Norfolk. During

priated to aid in its reconstruction.

The New York Tribune this morning says:
"Money was more active, and pemabustnoss
was done at 6 per cent. The 5 peV cent, loans
were alike undisturbed In most cases. For
mercantile paper the rates aro unchanged.
There is a little 7 per cent, paper making, and
not much demand for it Good names pass at
89, and ordinary at 10015 $ cent. The re
ccut failure, which, as time passes, is shown to
have been more serious than when first an
nounced, has made lenders cautiou?. and safety
rather than high rates for money is tne rule, it
is a fact beyond question that the bauks of tbe
country, as a whole, are too much expanded,
and have as securities too many certificates re
presenting gold, coal, copper, Bnd petroleum
"enterprises," and railways of very doubtful
value. Danks who do not court this class of
traders have their pocket-books full of credits,
placed on (roods bought at high prices, to be
sold at a loss, or havo invested tbr ir funds too
lareely in Government stocks, which are not
money, or lounable,"
The Pottavtlle Miners'1 Journal of Saturday
says: "The quantity of coal sent by railroad
this week is i;u,16705; by canal 30,834; tor tho
week, 67,10107 tons, usainsc 88,597 tons for the
corresponding week lust year. The shipments
are heavy for the week, aud puces rule low, in
many instances below the cost of production for
some sizes. Of course this cannot continue
long. The trade sums up this week ns follows,
compared with last year: 18i!6, 160,171; 18KG.
177,707. Increase, 27.590. Prices have declined
a shade at the shipping ports since la-d wee.
This Is caused by the large supply sent to mar
ket, which is in cxce?s of a heiilthy demand.
Coal is now selling as low as it did in the first
year of the Rebellion. At the rates quoted it
will not net to the operators here over $250 to
$2-75 a ton. With the present wasres coal can
not lie mined at the.-e prices, except in a few
lavorab'e localities, nor do wc see how wages
can be reduced much with the present prlcvs of
living."
The value of the imports at P.oton for the
week endine. March il win $1,600,000, aud the
duty upon them will probably be nearly
$80,000.
Tbe Third National Bank of Buffalo bas been
designated as a Government DeposLory during
the week just clo-ed. Theitotal cumber is now
four hundred. The only National bank antho
