The Southern journals speak despondingly of the state of affairs lliere. Tlic Chattanooga Rebel looks for the worst, but declares that Charleston will never be taken as it stands. It threatens mining and blowing the city from its foundation in case of emergency. The Richmond Whiff says that the tire of our two liuudred-pounder Parrot guns tells fearfully on Sumter, and that the fort only replies at intervals. Rut it consoles itself with the idea that to reduce Fort Sumter is not to tako Charles ton, (or even if it were battered down the harbor would still te held. It has been determined, it pays, to defend the City, streot by street and honsc by bouse aB long ai a foot of earth is left; and, in preparation for gnt'h an emergency, Governor Bonliam has issued a proclamation urging tUe removal of all non-com b '.tants from the city as soon as possible. Refugees from Richmond, who arrived In Nor folk a few days ago, report that the Confederate government is sadly frightened about the possi ble fate of Charleston, the capture or wtich they regard as the winding up of the rebellion. They also state that a guard is kept about the resi dence of Jeff. Davis uight and day to prevent him from leaving Richmond. The news from Genera' Meade's nrm^ is intere^- I ing. A. cavalry reconnoissance to Culpepper dis- j covered no rebels in that quarter. Reports that Lee was moving toward Richmond arc not con firmed. There Is no doubt that he is BtiU on the Rappahannock aud Rapidnn, and intends to remain there as long as lie cun. It was nevertheless con fidently stated that his army had moved towards GordonsviUe, on the way to Richmond, but such information had not reached our commanding generals. General Meade has issued an order with rcfc rencc to the circulation of newspapers in the army, to the effect that those who require th> m can procure any paper they choose by ordering It from the Provost Marshal of the command to which they belong, thus affording the men an op portunity to select the papers they desire to read. The draft in the Sixth district proceeded as quietly yesterday as on the two preceding days. The conscr ption in the Fourth and Seventh dis tricts will commence on Monday. We learn from Leavenworth, Kansas, that a band of rebel jucrillas made a descent on Law r nee on the night of the liOtb inst., and pillaged the town, finally setting it on lire and destroying it. The reports from the Southwest represent our army in the Mississippi valley as lying dormant for the time being at different points. V ery few troop# are at Vicksburg. Gcnernl Sherman's corps is still enosmped near the Big Black, on Bear and Clear creeks. Admiral Porter s fleet is scattered along the Mississippi river from New Orleans to Cairo. The intermediate distances between the po nts where the gunboats are stationed *re pa trolled by light draught boats. M ! 8 CELL AH EOU8 MEWS. All of the Central American Statea seem to be in an agitated condition# General Zavala, a par tisan of Duenas, arrived at Sonaonate, San Salva dor, on the mh of June, with four hundred men, when the town piononnced against Barrios. Gen. Zavala was received with cheers and garlands. On the 21th ultimo, however, Gen. Bracamonte, a partisan of Barrios, with four hundred and fifty men, was marching <m the town, which, In the na tural eourae of tilings in that part of the world, would fall into Lift hands. The steamship Kangaroo, Captain Bridgman, which left Liverpool on the 7th and Queenstown on the 8th instant, arrived at this port yesterday noon. Iler news has been anticipated. The steamship Great Eastern, Captain Pat on, from Liverpool Wth inst., will be dne at her anchorage in Flnshing Bay on Saturday, 11i. The prize atcaincr Kate, Acting Master Dexter, commanding, arrived at this port yesterday from Beaufort, N. C., via Hampton Roads, In tow of tht United Statea steamer Newbern.

Tbo cop pcrhoad shows how the late Kentucky eleotion was engineered by tbo federal administration against the copperheads, and the niggcrboad shows how a part of the administration is engi neering to defeat the niggerheads in Maryland. Tbo copperhead roars lustily over tbo accom plished defeat of his party in the West, but the niggerhead blubbers quite as noisily ovfr the anticipated thrashing of his faction in tho East. Such a pair of unruly oxen deserve well to bo yoked together. lien Wood's copperhead correspondent ad mits that the issue in Kentucky was between tho conservative Union war party and the cop perhead pcacc party, tho platform of which was: "No more men and no more money to wage an abolition unconstitutional war;" or, in other words, the election was between the "men and money" party and the "no more men aud no more money party."' But be says that, as tho day of election approached, tho men and money party bocauie alarmed; that "bayonets had to bo invoked again;" that the pruteneo of a guo rilla invasion was siczed upon; that General Burnside thus stopped forward as master of ceremonies; but, continues tbe indignant cop perhead commentator, "I will not sicken you with tho detaijg of this sad, this melancholy transaction, styled an election. You know the result, and, in God's name, that is enough." ? And yet, would you believe it," says this dis gusted copperhead, "the men who rejoice over this disgraceful transaction, who Instigated it, who boast of it, claim to be democrats, and commend themselves to the Northern democracy as co-workers against federal tyranny." It is evident that this Kentucky copperhead is considerably muddled and befogged with the results of the Kentucky election; but a very few words, we think, will sorve to explain the mystery. The successful party in the election was a Union conservative party, emphatically opposed to tbe policy of the emancipation pro- ) clamatiou and to all the extreme nogro war measures of tho abil'tion faction, but still in favor of, men and money for the suppression of the rebellion, as the only way In which we can I restore the "integrity of the Union." In short, the war policy of this party was that embraced in tbo almost unanimous resolution of Congress parsed at the extra war sc3si6n or 1861. Upon this broad Union platform thero was no diffi culty in bringing about a fusion of all tho old conservative whigs and democrats of Kentucky. As for the abolition faction of the State, it amounts practically to nothing. But, in oppo sition to the Union war party, there was this copperhead peaco party, or the secession and Southern confederacy wing of the old demo cratic party. This mere fragment of the old democracy had already suffered a loss of per haps noteless than forty thousand mon, drawn off into the rebel armies, a whole brigade of them, for Instance, under Breckinridge, hav ing joined the army of Bragg. The Union vote, therefore, in Kentucky, being a fusion of con servative men of all parties, was comparatively heavy in the late election; while tbe copper- : head vote, being only that of a reduced rem nant of the secesh democracy, was oxceediugly j light and feeble. Burnside, we know, issued his proclamation against all disloyalists; but wc dare say that if he had issued forty procla mations, or no proclamation at all, the result would have been substantially the same. So much for the late Kentuokj election and the copperheads. Now for the approaching Ma ryland election and the niggerheads. According to the Tribune correspondent, Mr. Tostm aster General Blair and Mr. Secretary Seward are working in Maryland with the copperheads against the niggerheads. The Tribune man ? says "it is darkly hinted and generally under stood that the member of the Cabinet from Maryland (Mr. Blair) is not so entirely satisfied with the Arm array of the emancipationists of the State, and would prefer a lees decided policy. It would have been better, it is in sisted, to have gone into tbe copperhead oen j vention, and, if outvoted, to have acquiesced." Worst of all, General Schenck, being a radical of tbe Burnside class, it is charged by this 2Y?- j I bune man that there has been In tbe Blair cor ner of the Cabinet, and ia, "an organized effort to remove General Schenck, and great fears ?re expressed that he will be so pertinaciously persecuted by still curtailing his command as to compel him to retire in disgust." To make sure work upon this point it seems that Mr. | Seward has been hobnobbing with Stanton at the War Office, and that Stanton has been "sof* j tened by the relieving vapor of the Secretary of State's segar." But, for all this, we are told that "if Mr. Seward and Mr. Blair have made a coalition to stifle the free voice of Maryland, and make it ecBo their timid and wavering policy, they will fall;" for that "their only pos sible success will be to send several copper beads to Congress, and defeat the administra tion entirely." From all this we conclude that the nigger heads bare been "proepeotlng" very actively In ' My Maryland," that they have made some interesting dbcoverles, and that thoy expect to be defeated in Maryland In November about as decisively as the copperheads have been In Kentucky. We expect a similar result in Mary land to that of Kentucky? a great victory of tbe conservative Union party and its sound Union platform, against both niggerheads and copperheads; and that from these border slave States will come that wholesome leavening or the rreeldentUri campaign which will unite all the conservatives (X tfr? ???** ry, and purify I the whole Ittfflp of tb? CaMcrlptloa Lot(?rr> The ragnriw of the wheel of fortune pre sided over by the Provost General are entirely ahead of aojtkiag that waa erer pro duoed by the straw borry lottery of the Tritmin or the IV. XI. XL IV. lottery of the Daily News. One of the prizes of the Conscription lottery has been draws by the patriotic pugilist, John Morriiwey. Of course be will gird on his aword and prepare to attaek the foe, striving to emu late that gallant guardsman and brother pro fessor of the noble art of self-defence who fell at Waterloo, surrounded by a hecatomb of slaugh tered Freuobmen. Another prize has been drawn by John Clanoy, one ot the shining lights of one section of the democratic party in this city? it dooa not matter which. Clancy will go to the fluid, we are sure. His Leader heuccforth will be the general who will flash his sword most gallantly and triumphantly iu the face of the advancing fo?. We will take care of all the branches and ramifications of the democracy while John Is serving his coun try iu the tented field; and wheu he comes b ick, covered with glory, we will reinstall him in office. Last, but not least, In our notice of winners in Undo Sam's lollery is Wm. II. Fry, one of the editors of the lYibune. On this prize we congratulate the country. Mr. Fry, although, connected with the l*ribvnt, is s gentleman and a scholar. When he shall havo gone? as go ho will ? there will he none of the same sort left in that establishment. lie is, moreover, an author and a musical oomposer beside*. In the latter quality h<5 will be an invaluable acquisition to our army. IIo bos been for a score of yoars and more trying to manage opera and operatic troupes in this city. If he found them uu inanageable it was no fault of his. Not an impresario or groat Italian artiste has landed on these shores for the last quarter of a century but Wm. II. Fry wa3 eager to press upon their acceptance an oper<i of his own composing. The miserable foreigners could not see the beauty of it, and so he could not have his operaj presented to a longing and admiring public. But now fortune seems roaJy to make amends to him for her former playful buffet ing*. The Secretary of War, who is famous for discovering the right man for the right place, will immediately, we have no doubt, commis sion him as brigadier general of the musical brigade. In that position ho will be able to have all his operas and musical compositions played by every band in the army, to the ex clusion of such stupid airs as "Vankee Doodle," "Hail Columbia," "John Brown Marching On" and "The Battle Cry of Freedom.'' Hereafter the ears of our brave soldiers will be greeled with classical music alone, composed by Briga dier General Fry. Who can estimate U:e moral effect of the enthusiasm which this will inspire in the breasts of the array? It will be no figure of speech to say of Brigadier General William H. Fry that One blMt upon til* bugle horn Were worth teti thousand mom Tub Restoration or the Union and the Nio qRiiHKAD and CoppKRtiEAD Press. ? The radical and copperhead journals of this city are making a great fuss about the mode, manner and condi tions of the restoration of the Union at the end of the war. and they are speculating whether I j the army now being raised by the draft will bo euflloient for the purpose. They might as well s ave themselves the trouble. When the military power of the rebels is completely destroyed? as it soon will be ? there will be no longer nny question at issue. The insurgent States, l>y virtue of the constitution, whose authority is above that of Congress and the President, be come unconditionally States of the Union again; and they havo only to seud their Senators to the Senate Chamber and their Representatives to tbe other ball of Congress, and no powor can keep them out. It needs no proceeding of Congress, no act of amnesty, no proclamation of the President, to give validity to the restora tion of (he Southern States to their legal and constitutional status in Congress. Nor has Con gress or tbe Presldont any power to interfere after the close of hostilities with any of tbe domestic institutions or municipal laws of the South. The Confiscation act and Emancipation act are null and void by their unconstitutionali ty, and the only emancipation which can have any effect is that which has taken place by the acts of the generals within the lines of the army. All outside is legally untouched by the President's proclamation, which is, as he himself described it, only like the Pope's bull against the comet. Tbe war being over, military lines cease fo exist, and every State right and insti tution revives by the force of tbe constitution. This was the platform laid down by Congress in Its declaratory resolution in the extra session proclaiming the fundamental law of tbe land; and all parties may as well make up tbeir.minds at once that this constitutional principle will prevail over all crotchets and revolutionary ideas. The people are determined to have it so, and that settles the matter, as all the world will find out by the result of the next Presidential election. LoTAirTT ? What Is It?? The begging circu lar for broken down republican jouroala which we published on Thursday raises a point which wo should like to see more clearly defined by its authors. Whqn It solicits subscriptions for the newspapers hamed in it aa "loyal journals" Is it oieant by implication to stigmatize all not included in the list as disloyal ? What is loyal ty T Wo always understood it under our form of government to mean fidelity to the con stitution and the laws. Fidelity to politi cal organisations or to their leaders is not loyalty. We defy Postmaster Wakeman and the other signers of this document kto point out any journal In the country which has been so consistently and unswerv ingly loyal as the Herald. It has ever iacut cated respect for the constitution, obedience to the laws, and abstinence from violence of every, kind. Can the aame be said of the jftuAalr whose claims to loyalty are paraded iu this cir cular ? Did not the Irlbunt, in the fall of I860, give all the enoousagement possible to the re bellion by proclaiming the right of secession? Has it not since dtatnguished Itself by its advo cacy of severe measures of proscription against individuals because they were in favor of peace? And is it not now using every sffort to intensify the bad feeling produced by the draft in order to have martial law proclaimed in our oity and a reign of bloody despatym inaugu rated ? If this be loyalty we do not want to be confound od with the journals laying claims to public patronage on the trtrngth of it. Our views of our obligations a? loyal citiaens are different, and Urn manner in which tbey are en dorsed by the community leaves jm no caime to regret our not finding a place in Toetlkliltor i Wafcemao's U?t of "cboseu ones," ->"* j TM Trlkvat lUaiwriMg Mm Arm? mm ?

And then they go on to divld?? thruo classes up into gamblers, prist* Aghtors, thieves, rumaellers and slave drivers? the rumneller* being represented by the imaginary character of liarney OTools. This must be taken as highly complimentary to the enllghtoued citi zens of New York who aro "patrons, admirers ?nd supporters of tbe Heiiai.d" to an extent ten times greater than they are of the organ of the free lovers; so that, If there were any truth lu the ravings of the Tribune, the moral standing of the people of New York and of the United States must be at a very low point. A paragraph which appeared in yestorday's Herald, in the despatch of one ot our army correspondents, is a pretty good commentary upon poor Greeley's last exhibition of bad tem per. We reprodnco it here. It is as follows: ? CIKOIH.ATION OF PAPKIW IN TUB A KMT. To show tbe lavor with which (he JIkkaui It received in l ho army 1 um permuted to hta'.o what was tho order for it aud other pa] crs yesterday, sent by Mc? , who bu the monopoly of ulljiowa retailed to tbeetrmy Nhw York IHrald 2,600 . New Vork JnOune 200 New York Tit n-j 160 Now York World 160 The circulation of the Hkiuld in the Army of the Potomac is, according to these figures, five times greater than tbe aggregate circulation of tbo Tribune, Times and World, and twelve and a half times greater than that of the Tribune alone. The inference, therefore, is inevitable, if there bo any truth iu Horace, that the Army of the Potomac is largely composed of Baruey O'Tooles and of the other representatives of "the dangerous classes." When Hooker was in command of that army be endeavored to restrict the circulation of New York papers to that of the Tribune alone, but with very poor success. When Meade superseded him all such abound attempts at restriction were abolished, and the consequence is that tbo Hwut.u has distanced all its puny competitors. We tako it for granlod that the army is about equally made up of democrats and republicans, and yet, accord ing to the Tr 'hune, ninety per cent of its mem bers must belong to "the dangerous classes." After that we wonder that Horace would not be ashamed to show his old white hat any where. Hl' should immediately withdraw hiin pelf from the haunts of civilized men, and, by penance, prayer, mortification aad the reading of holy books, strive to make some atonement fur this slaudur upon the good people of New York and our brave Army of the Potomac. A Pair or Norij: Brothers.? Pen Wood, of the Aewa, and Horace Greeley, of the Tribune ? the one formerly a member of Congress, and the other a member at present ? one the editor of a radical revolutionary uiggerhead sheet, the other ibe editor of a tadicil revolutionary cop perhead concern? are both laboring in the same vocation and to the same end ? to eifcct a separation of the North from the South. Both are fomenting riots and Civil war at the North, the better to accomplish their common purpose. Wood wnnts nn armistice, which implies a recognition of the independence of the Southern States; and that is exactly what Greeley lias been driving at from the beginning. He said if they were really in favor of separation they ought to be allowed to go, according to the principles of the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims that "government can only exist by tbe consent of the governed," and that every people bavo a right to clmngo tbeir gov ernment with a view of promoting their own happiness. It will be thus seen that extremes meet, and that the teachings of Ben Wood in tbe Anrs and of Horace Greeley in the Tribute lead to the same result. Though they have taken tbeir departure from opposite points of the compas*. they are steering for tbe same destination. Both are playing into the hands of JefT. Davis and his confraternity, and both are contributing as far as they can to defeat the grand object of the war. Par nobilefratrum ! Cotton Frax'dh. ? We see It stated that the re port of the commission appointed to investigate the frauds upon government arising out of cotton speculations in the West and South west has been sent in to the War Depart ment. aud that it seriously implicates a major general aud several other officers of rank. This is the investigation wliicb General McDow ell was sent down to preside over shortly after his removal from command, and his time since has been unremittingly devoted to it. Able and impartial as the report no doubt is, we do not believe that anything will result from it. Tbe parties Incriminated are creatures of the administration: and in this, as in tbe case of other inquiries of a similar character, means will be found to cushion the evidence, or at all events to save the offenders from punishment. tarwiini or the Criott CtMcRMSirer.?
