This winy, aa one of ofience, ia much toe small. As an
army merely of ocaupatlob it is aa much too large. Until
Strongly reinforced we can niako uo fur.her advances, aud
at) long aa the navy can bo depended upon to retain the
footholds we have gained chore is no neodor the unwieldy

which .-Lull call us also uito more active service.
It ecoms as if .his dct?'tment was iu a proper
Condition to bring its history to s close. Since
Admiral Pu.-out captured Port Royal, the occu
patien of South tarothu U.j b.en but a series
ef experiments. until at List there is within tiie range
of my calculation no u"w ono which is likely to
be tried therein. Kiom inviting thg absconded r< btls
to return to their all.giauce and their homes, and en
joy, under our protection, all their abandoned rights,
we have gone to the opposite extreme of putting down
every wh.te man a rebel, and declaring overy slave a
freeman forever. We have planted coru and cotton >
and have harvested many tho .sane negroes, while the
Orops fat lldistoj Lave boon abandoned to those who
are in tne greatest ueed of them?our foes. First
treating the blacks as an inferior race, und employing
them in the only m-nuer in which they could be of ser
vloe, we afterward -suitor hooka to amuse them, wo
men to teach tlum, eiders to baptize them, and guns
and uniforms wl.e. e.vith to arm and equip them. Gen.
Hunter attempted to ..lace the colored man on a footing
with the white sol or; but the darkey proved a hot
potato, in his hand.?, and has been allowed to drop into
tho pot again.
Having tried so n.a y experiments, each one of which
has tailed to bring t.s > day neater the end of the war,
what shall we do nex t My answer would be, relievo

July 2,1862, irom headquarters, liepartmeut of the South,
and of which Major Henry L Higguuuo, First Massachu

Boouiort, D. O.with intent to deuel re and defraud, re
preiaut to Brigadier General Saxton, lben in possession,
un> er orders ,rom the Secretary of War, and on behalf of
the government of the United States, of all ihe planta
tions berotoiore occupied by the rebels in the Department
of the South, that he, the said Selgwi, k, had collected
from the sea, at or near Bay Point, in said department, a
quantity or drift timbor: that the expense of collecting it
had been borne by himself, end amounted to some seven
or eight hundred dollar.-; that this amount wee, io his
opinion, shout the real valua of said timber; and that
upon this representation, whieh bo well know to be false,
he claimed that said timber was rightfully his, and
sought to obtain Gan. Sax ton's consent to its removal
from Bay loiht, for the purpose of shipping it to the
North, and seliing It for his (Sedgwick's) own beueflt.
That up<>n . eueral Saxton's refusal to give ouch con
sent. unless Sedgwick should satisfy him by the evldenco
of two disiute. eeted parties ^hat the real value of i he
timber had been fairly stated by h.tn. be, the said Sedg
wick did proc .re and bring to General Saxton au instru
meot In writing, purporting u> be an estimate furnished
by two uislnterested parties, by which the value of said
timber was declared to beeunu seven or eight hundred
dollars 'lbs*, upon this representation,agd upon those
previously tnado, all of wbich he well knew at the time
tube false, be idedgwick) induced General Saxton, as
agent for, and representing the government of, the United
States, relying upon sue* represents!! to release all
claim to said timber, and give him a written permission
toahipltas aforesaid, upon bis (Sedgwick's) paying for
said privilege to Captain John H. Moore, Assistant Quar
termaster on General baxton'i staff, the sum of two bah
dred doilars, to the credit of the government of the
United r-taies
That notwithstanding his assurance to General Saxton
that said limber was only worth seven or eight hundred
doliaia, the said Sedgwick Las since declared. In a letter
addressed to Major General Hunter, that he bad,at the
time t)e made snch ropreaeo tat ions to General Saxton,
already sold or agreed to .->eil the same to one George
Walter, a contractor lor delivering timber of this de
scription to the Navy Department, for the sum of twelve
thousand doilars, or thereabout*, being at th^)at?ff one
dollar per fuot for something liko L2,ono toot of lumber.
To which Ihe prisoner pleaded as follows:?
To the BpotlUcatlon?"Not guilty.??
To the charge?"Not guilty."
msdiscs aito morrxwes.
The Court .having maturely weighed and considered the
evidence adduced, finds the prisoner as follows:?
Of the spe<. i ileal Ion?"Guilty."
Of the chargo?"Guilty."
And the Court does therefore sentence him, the said H.
J. .Sedgwick, citizen, "to forfeit ail claims for expenses
Incurred in collecting lumber referred to In this case,
also, the two hundred dollars paid by him to Csptsru John
H. Moore, A. Q. M , and to forfeit Uie sum of on* thousand
dollars to the United States, and to be imprisoned four
months, or, in default of paying the fine, to be imprisoned
for the period of one year."
Second?Mo.vg, a colored man.
Cba^e?W iiful mu'der.
SpeciHcats?u?In tils that he, the s^)d Moses, did, on
the 20th day of June, 1362, at Glbbe' plantation, Ladies'
Island, & C., feloniously, wilfully, sad with malice afore
thought, assauit a negro named June; that the said Moses
did then and there beat the said June with a club, giving
unto the said June a mortal wound, of which said mortal
wound, on the 20th day of Jane, 1862, the said negro
June did die.
All of which was without just cause or provocation,
and against the peace of the good people of the t atted
Statee.
To wbich the prisoner pleaded as follows:?
To the specthcaiion?"Not guilty."
To the charge?"Not guilty."
FnrOWM AST) SSTCX3C*.
The Oonrt tnda the accused:?
Of the speciOcattoo?"Guilty."
Of the chargo?"Not guilty, but guilty of Border in
the second degree " And the Court do? therefore sen
teoce him, the said M<*es, to ten years'conOnement In
any Jail within the Jurisdiction or the United Slate*.
II. The proceedings and (hidings of the Military Com
mission In the foregoing cases sre approved.
In the belief that, in the caso of H. J Sedgwick, the
in'erests of the government will not suffer nor the moral
effect of the lesson taught by the just sentence of the
< ourt be lewt by such leniency, tbe Geoe.aJ commanding
direr ta that so much of the sentence aa require* an im
prisonment for tbe i>eriod ol Tour muatbe be and the
?am* is hereby remitted.
Tho remainder will be carried Into effort.
Tbu sentouce in tbe cane of Moecs will be carried into
effect. There being no ? jliable place for imprisonment
in this department, the I'rovost Marshal will send tbe
prisoner to the Uailed States Marshal of the District of
Columbia.
III. Ihe Court recommend, In the ca*r of Mr H J.

The steamship McClsllsn.Capt. A. C. Cray, fromPort

tag. bringing a portion of the first Massachusetts cavalry,
CoL Robert Williams oonunandlng. and several pass Mi
gera, among whom was Major Hal pine, lata Assistant
Adjutant General In the Department of the South, on his
way to join Gen. Halleck In the same capacity. Major
Halplne, I am happy to announce, la in excellent health,
although suffering somewhat from aa affliction of the
eyes, occasioned by the terrible glare and heat of the
sand at Hilton Head, which ha has so long been com
pelled to endure without any means of relief. This is
only tempo*ary, Uowevor, aud a change of location will
soon cure It.
Colonel Robert Williams returns with a portion of his
command, and proceeds to Washington to night to pro
cure a number of horses to replace those in his commaud
that have died from disease aud other causes.
It is not known where tho First Massachusetts cavalry
will be sent, but doubtless to some point where their
oilicieucy will be of great service.
Rev. Mr. Trench, the apostle of the Gideonites in South
Carolina, also came lu the Meridian, accompauied by one
ol his sable brothers, Itobt. Small, who has earned quite a
reputation by taking out the steamer i'lamer i rom ( uarlos
ton under the very guns ot Fort Sumter itso.f. Brothers
French and Small ure understood to be on u starring tour
in the Northern cities lor the special pecuniary advantage
of the white brother, and the general reputation oi the
brothers or the darker skin. They will star it together;
and I have reason to believe that New York will bo
honored first by their preseucc in a professional way, a d
it is fondly expected that the specie w ill fall in bounteous
showers iuto the lap of Brother French, whose cof
fers a:e already quito plethoric with that world,y
dross,gathered in the sa.idy region of i'ort Koyai.
Brother Small is to exhibit himself to the gaping multi
tude for a consideration,aa 1 have before suggested, and
will relate his experience in Dixie, and also give a g ephio
account of bow he got out of tho hands of the Philistines
of Charleston and into tlie hands of Brother French and
the Gideonites of Beaufort, making altogether a very in
teresting and moral entertainment,and exceedingly cheap
for the sum of twenty live cents. What the precise n.U
may be that Brother French Intends to take I have not
been able to learn; but probably he will, from his exten
sive experience In tho matter as chief of the contrabands,
indulge in a few reminiscences of life among the contra
bands of South Carolina?their proclivities for taking
things, and their inestimable value as agriculturists,
wbou directs 1 by experienced and intelligent overseers
from Massachusetts. He will doubtless enter Into statis
tics enough to show that the cotton whioh has been raised
unuor the auspices of the educational and missionary

James river flotilla. It is busily engaged lu keeping the
rebels in a terrible state or consternation by its active
and threatening movements on the river, In the neighbor
hood of City Point, by which the rebels are oompelled to
keep a large lerce there and in Petersburg to ward oil tho
impending blow. Borne of those days we shall bear of

Since tin sailing of the Champion there is little to add
to the local news of Panama.
the PaetSc MRU Steamship Company's line cetr steamer
Constitution arrived on the morning of the 18th instant,
lifty-four days from New York. She leaves to-morrow
for San Francisco with the passengers and malls brought
out by the Ariel, having got in Just In tlmo to prevent the
despatch of the California.
The Uncle Sam arrived this morning with Kg passen

ther in refereeoe to the ket steamer Golden Gate.
The United States flagship Lanodhtsr, which left San
Francisco on the 28th ult., had not reached Acapulco
when the Uncle Sam left there.
Her Britannic Majesty's ship Cametoon, from Mexican
ports, wKta nearly $1,000,000 in treasure, arrived here
yesterday.
There has been no lighting on the Isthmus yet, and
matters appear to be quieting down.
The passengers by the Ariel are now all on board the
Constitution. They are all in excellent health and en
Joyed their stay here. The Ibciflc Mail Steamship Com

In oar last lesuo wu announced the fact of commis
sioners having arrived in Panama from Governor Guar
dia, with authority to mako certain peace propositions
to the Provisional Governor Idas, but so many rumors
were afloat as to their tenor, wo declined publishing
them.
It appqpra now that thase propositions wers a willing
ness on the part of Governor Uuardla to place the State in
the lauds of the provisional government, on condition
that the latter should guarantee protection from molest 4
tion to the persons and property of those who have aided
in sustaining the constitutional authority, par the ex
penses thereby incurred, and oall a general dbovention
for the legal election of new State officers. Those propo
anions were made with the object of avoiding a collision
between the opposing parties.

Although It is now nearly two months since the first
annouucouteul that in is steamer was to lee . e Nassau, N.
P., as a rebel privates, under coiutpapd of Uaol. Somuiea,
yet we have heard nothing of her movements. A letter
from that place, speaking of the Oveto, says?'-The
boast is openly made her# by La line and his friends that
she will oapture one of our CaJiloruia steamers within
ten days after her departure from this port. She Is a
splendid vessel, said to be owned by Messrs. 'ireuhoia,
Eraser k Co., of Charleston, ot fine model, great speed,
able, it Is said, te steam eighteen miles an hour, and
heavily aemed with fine rilled gnus, which would make
her a formidable opponen for any of our oceaa cruisers
should they fall in with bar."
srrruas for ths Krone. .
The same letter says, "Many of the merchants here
havAbeea doing a splendid buslnoss during the last slg
mouths to furnishing supplies to the rebels, from whom
they obtain exorbitant prices for almost every artiqje
they sell them. la some ins lances, merchants from
rebeldom have purchased entire stocks of goods here In a

them ami run lntoseceesla.
Messrs. Addeny & Co., the largest firm here In the in

overflowing with goods, swatting favorable opportuni
ties of sending them safely into Chariot-ton. Many ves
sels bring consignments ot goods to this house, n.id It is
raid that several merchants are Implicated in the filling
of orders dtreot from parlies which they know to be
living in the rebel States. A schooner arrived here a
few weeks since with an assorted cargo, among which
were thirty or forty cases of Enfield rifles, and quite a
large quantity of powder. As those articles ere n< t
needed at present to supply our home trado, it is fair to
presume that they are intended for another and better
market.

To-day's bank statement compares as follows

The bank movement has become monotonously*
regular from week to week. Money continues to
flow here in large amounts, the banks continue to
make every effort to keep their deposits employed,
and the public continue to lodge their specie in bank
as the safest place for it. The large increase in
loans reflected in the above statement arises from
the negotiation of $8,000,000 of 7.30 notes by Mr.
Cisco last week. Eaoh successive wefek renders
It more difficult for the banks to increase their
loans line as fast as their deposits increase.
Money is very abundant at 4 per cent on call.
Mercantile paper of the highest grade ranges from
4 to 5; names not so generally known C a 7. Certi
ficates of indebtedness are worth 99%; green
back demand notes, 107%. The Sub-Treasurer
received to-day on deposit at 4 per cent $80,000.
Gold and exchange were both weaker to-day.
The former opened at 115%, and sold down to
115% at the first board; in the afternoon sold at
115%, and closed 115% bid. It seems to be a
well established principle now that favorable news
will depress, and unfavorable news will enhance,
the price of gold; also that gold and stocks, in
stead of working together, as it was expected
they would do when gold first began to rise, move
in opposite directions. When stocks rise
gold falls, and vice versa. Persona who
find it difficult to explain this fact or this law
must bear In mind that stocks are moving at pre
sent mainly in consequence of the earnings of the
railroads and the bright prospects of the Union
cause, whereas gold is afibcted exclusively by the
present and future issues of paper money. Ex
change on London is quoted'at 127 a % for bank
ers' bills, with a very light inquiry.
The stock market was again buoyant to-day,
with a general advance in prices and a fair
amount of bunnea* In government securities and
railroad bond* and shares. At the first board
New York Central rose %, Erie %, Erie preferred
%, Hudson River 1%, Michigan Central %, South
ern old 1%, guaranteed %, Illinois %, Galena %,
Toledo 1%, Rock Island %. Government sixes
were in cfemand at % advance, and all classes of
railroad bonds were higher. There was a good
inqnlry for Pittsburg and Fort Waynes at an ad
vance on all three issues; likewise for Chicago
and Northwesterns,at an advance on the assented
bonds of % per cent. At the clone of the first
board the market was very buoyant, and a further
advance of % a % took place in Central, Erie,
Erie preferred, Michigan Central, Ac. The news
from Virginia was regarded as quite favorable,
and persons who sold out their stockn when they
were apprehensive of the safety of General Pope's
army were free buyers to-day. At the second
board the market reacted % a % per cent
on the whole list, in consequence of sales to
realize profits. It closed steady, the following
being the quotations at half-past three:?United
States 6'?, registered, 1881, 101% a %; do. 6'st

The report is current that the Erie Railway
directors hare decided to pay a dividend of 3%
per cent on the preferred shares on 1st of January
next. We hare reason to know that no formal
decision to this effeot has been made; bat of thn
fact there can be but little doubt. The earnings
of the road for the calendar year 1862 will fel
but little, if at all, short of $7,600,000, which wS
enable the direotion to pay off every dollar
of floating debt, and 3% par cent on the preferred
shares, and hare between two and three kin
dred thousand shares in the treasury as working
capital.
Mr. Vail, of the Bank of Commerce, has been
busily engaged for the past day or two in pioking
up United States notes (5's, 10's and 20'a) for tha
use of the State government in the payment
of bounties. Probably a million dollars in all kaa
been sent to Albany.
The business of the Sub-Treasury was as follows
to-day:?
Receipts $783,773 OS
?Kor customs 1M ,000 00
Payments 1,990,681 2f
Balance 7,660,390 90
The exchanges at the Bank Clearing House this
morning were $32,991,583 85, and the balances
$1,489,143 8$.
Coleman's San Francisco circular of July 91
says
In this market we note some abatement In the demand
for uonoy as compared with the period of our last re
ference. The rates, however, rule as then?averaging
about 1% per coin per month for tho bed paper, and
from that to 2 per cer i n cording to time. 'ihe activity
in the merchandise mat ket has not yel alTciod money.
Remittances and collections appear to be satisfactory.
We learn that amicable cress are lobj aoon submitted
to the Supreme Court of this State for a settlement of the
Itgal tender questlm, which is at tho present mo
ment a topic of absorbing interest. Tho collection
? if federal taxes soon to commence, will probably
relievo tliie question of some of its more embarrass
ing features, unless tho market is deluged with the
lolob for speculative purposes, In which event the
existing repugnance will bo aggravated. The
$1,000,000 received by last steamer, aro, wo learn, still in
the Sub Treasury awaiting orders. Receipts from the is
ieriorand Northern coast mioessince laU repirt sum up
at about $1,660,000, exclusive of arrivals by private
hands. Of this amount but about $150,000 have beea is
coin. The deposits in tho Rranch Mint during the same
period have boon: gold $261,000; sliver, $37,000; together,
?ay $300,000. leaving upon the market in bars ..bout
$1.20o "cO, a portion of which has been taken lor China.
The demand an yet has not been active. Sales are re
ported to us at 880 a 890 and holders expect to get 900 to
morrow. Silver is said to bo lower, but we hear of no ia.

notes ore held, we learn, at six per oent discount, and
considerable sales aro reported at that figure by a single
uarty. Elsewhere tha buying prico is aliout fifteen per
cent discount. There are very fow oflbrlng and lass
wunfed until the tax collections commence, when the dig
ouraetnenia of government will supply all that Is neoded.
Mexican dollars continue very scarce. We hear of small
spies at ten per cent premium, which Is a fair quotation
at ihe present moment.
The foreign imports of treasure at San Franoiseo
lor the week ending the 31st of July amounted ts
$68,442 22. The exports for the month of Jtrijr
were:?

We read in the New Orleans National AdoooeJ*
(Jacob Barker's paper) of the 16th of August the
following
It was remarkably quiet la the general money and
paper market to day. hq and about the banks there wen
nothing whatever doing. Presidents and cashiers warn
on hand; but there was nothing on band for them to do.
There ia very little paper maturing, and all such tha
banks willingly renew on the payment of a very light in
stalment, or redaction, with interest or discount in ad
vance. There was no movement in exchange to day be
yond email sums of francs at ninety days date at fresn
4 a 3 86. In sterling exchange we did not learn ef n
movement. Northern funds are without any variation
checks ranging from 9, 10 a 11 per cant premium. Thn
business appears to be confined to private bankers. Thn
pub.ic banks are doiug nothing whatever In the way ef
buying and selling, which throws all the business on Ihn
private bankers, who appear to have as much as th?r
want. There ia uoihing tfoi g in time bills on New YosOl
