The bilot period which has elai*ed since tlio last adjournment or Congress baa not afforded aulliclent opportuulty to lest ihe efficacy of tbe most lm iMirtaut laws then enacted , n?r have tho events occurring In the interval been such us materially to change tbe state of the country. , , , , Tbeunjuit war commenced against us, In violation or the rights of the States, and in usurpation of power not delegated to tho government ot tbe I'clted States, is still characterized by the barbarism with winch it baa here torore been conducted by the ouemy. Aged men. help loss women and children appeal In vain to tbe humauity which should be iuspired by their condition, for liumu nlty from arrest, Incarceration or banishment irom their liotnos. Plunder and devastation of the property or non combatants, destruction or private dwellings and even of ed i tlcof devoted to the worship ol (lod. expeditions or ganized tor the solo purpose of sacking ernes, consign ing them to the flames, killing the unarmed iuhabitanta, ??ud lutlicting horrible outrages ou women and children, are some of the constantly recurring atroclttos ot tho Invader. It cannot reasonably be pretend ed that such acts conduco to any end which tbeir authors dare avow hel'oro the civilized world, and foouer or later Chrisiondom must mete out to them the condemnation which such brutality deserves The suf ferings thus ruthlessly lullirted upon tho jieopleof the In vaded districts has served but to Illustrate their patriot. Ism. Kn< ire unanimity snd /oal for their country's cause have been pre eminently conspicuous among those whose ?acrtfoses have bees groatest So tbe army which bas borne the trials end dangers or the war . which hag been subjected to privations and disappointments, (tests of xnunly fortitude far more severe than tho brief fatigues and perils of actual combat), has been the centre of cheerfulness and boi>o. From the camp oomos tho voice of the soldier patriot inv >ktng each who is at home, in the sphere he best may Oil, to devote hit whole energies to the support of a cause, in the success of which their coutldence has never faltered They, the veterans of mauy a hard Dnght fleld, tender to their country, with out limit or time, a aervlse of priceless value to us, one Which posterity wl'l hold in gratorul remembrance. In considering the state of tho country, the rellectlon Is naturally suggested that this is the Third Congress of the Confederate .States of America. Tho provisional govern ment wsa formed, Its Congress held four sessions, lived Its appointed term and passed away. The permanent gov. em ment was then organized, its different departments established, a Congress elected, which atso held rour ses sions, served Its full constitutional term and expired. You, the Second Congress under the permanent govern ment, are now assembled at the time and place appointed by law for commencing your soeslon All thee* events have passed into history, notwithstanding tbe threat of our prompt subjugation, made three years ago, by a people that presume to a?ssrt a title to govern States -whose separate and loaependent sovereignty was re cognized by treaty with France and Great Britain in the la*t century, Hnd remained unquestioned for near ly three generations. Yet these very govern ments, In disregard of duty and treaty obligations, which blad them to recognrze as Independent Virgin lm and other Confederate States, persist In countenancing, by moral Influence, If not In aiding by unfair and partial action, the claim set up by the Kxecutlve of a foreign govern ment to exercise despotic sway over the States thus reoognized, and treat the lovasion ot them by their former limited and special agent as though It were the attempt or a sovereign to suppress a rebellion against lawful aathorlty. Ungenerous advantage has been takon of our present condition, and our rights have been vio lated. our vessels of- war detained in ports to which they tiadbeeo Invited by proclamations of neutrality, and in one instance our flag also insulted where the sacrod right of asylum was supjiosed to be secure: while one or these governments has contented Itself with simply deprecating by deferential representations the conduct ol our enemy in the constantly recurring instances of bis contemptuous disregard or neutral rights and flagrant violations of public law. it may be that loreign govern ments, like our enemies, bate mistaken our desire for peace, unreservedly expressed, for evidence ol exhaus tion, and have thence Interred the probability or success in the efforts to subjugate or exterminate the millions of bumao beings who. In these Slates, prefer any fate to submission to their savago assailants. I see no prospect of an early change In tbe course here torore pursued by these unvomments . but when this de lusioo shall have been dispelled, and when our Indepeo dance by the valor and fortitude of our people, shall fa .ve been won against all tbe hostile Influences com btnod against us, and can no longer be ignored by open foes or prole sed neutrals, this war will have left, with its proud memories, a record or many wrongs, which it may not misbecome us to lorglve? some for which we may not properly forbear from uemardmg re dress In tbe meantime. It is enough for us to know that every avenue or negotiation Is closed against u<, that our eneeuv is muking rouewod and strenuous efforts for our destruction, and that the sole resource for us. as a people secure in the Justice of our cause and holding our liberties be more precious than all ether eirtblypos ?es<ions, is to combine and apply every available eiemeut ot power lor tboir defeuce and preservsti n , (in tbe subject of the exchange of prisoners I groatly | regret to he uuable to give you satisfactory information. Tbe government or the United States, while persisting In rsnure to execute the trrms of tbe cartel, make ? cc Clonal deliveries of prisoners, sud then suspend actn a -wiili ui apparent cau?e. I conless my inability to comprehend their policy or purpose. The prisoners beld b> us, in splie ?.f h iinane care, are perishing from the inevitable effects ol imprisonment and the home sirkne"* produced bv the hopelessuess of release irom cod linemen t. The spectacle ot their suffering augments our longing desire to reliove from similar trials our own brave men. who have spent so many weary months in a cruel and useless imprisonment, endured with be role constancy The delivery . alter a suspension or some -weeks has just been resumed by the enemy ; but as tbey give no assurance ot inte-it to carry out the cartel, an iu terruptioo of the exchai ge may recur at any moment.

It Is be lieved tn he of primary importance that no lurther issue oT notes /bouid take piace, and that the use of the credit ot the government should l?e restricted to toe two other modes provided by Congress, viz the sale of bonds and the issue o' certiilcstes i>.-aritig interest, for the price or ?u unites purchased wllhin our limits The law as It now stands, authorizes the issue by the Trea-ury of Desr notes to the exteul of t?o thirds ol the amount received under iU provisos. Tbe estimate of the amount funded under this law Is shown to he $.100,000,000. and Iftso thirds of this sum lie reissued, ws shall h ive an sldltlon ol 4200 000 oOO to our circulation, believed to be already ample 'tor' lbs busies of tbe country.

With our vast resources, tbe circulation.

Our Kuni o?is, seven in number, Immediately opened Are, ami a terrific engage mout ensued, listing from five until eiKht o'clock P. M. BSCArB or Tlil GOT ON FLAW? TH-; B MB ill ILL KKTAKBN. Juirini? the early part of the battle the Cotton Plant succeeded in malting her esc pe. and th-? ttie ram. firing rapidly, slowly and steadily, rotreuted up tbe Sound. Ihe guuboat Bombshell was soon reukon, with all ou board, some thirty -i<ur in uumb t. TIIK ATT At K BT IU1-. H ASSAOtJfl. AM) RKHULT. The Sassacis, baring an Iron prow, steamed at full speed and ran into the rani, striking it abaft tbe eontre, but apparently without inflcting any 1 Ju ? y on it. Tho Sassacus, however, was compelled to retire, having the forward rudder knocked off and a one hundred pound Parrott ibot fired by tbe ram through Its boiler. RKTI'EAT OF THE RAM? GAMALTIBS. Night had now set In, and the movements of the ram could not be accurately discerned. Closely pursued by the gunboats, and under cover of the darkness, the ram suoceeded iu gaining and entering tbe Roanoke river, where our gunboats could not venture to follow. Tbe Whitehead put in tbe last shot, and tbe tiring from all tbe boats is described as excellent; but to what extent tbe ram is injured cannot yet be ascertained. Our loss I.-) slight? two killed on board the Mattabesett, one tbe engineer, Yeoman, and tfte otber a boy. Kach one hud s leg shot off, and shortly arterwirds died. One man died on the Sassacus, from the effect of scalds received by tbe water thrown out of the boiler by tbe ram's shot. I regret to add that quits a number are severely and dan gerously scalded on tbis vessel from tbs same oause, and He la a critical condition. TBI DAMAOB DON* BT Til RAH. The only gunboats struok were tbe Wysluslng, Matt* besett and Sassacus; b it the injury dons thereby is very slight. Tbe ram carried at least four hundred-pounders, probably those captured at Piymoutb, but believed by some to be English Blakely gum. Tbe shot are steel, and well pointed. Tbe ram baa not been seen sines tbe engagement; but active measures will be taken to capture or destroy It. TUB RAM NKl'SB Reports from Kinston, that are isllabls, represent that tbs rebel ram Ncu<e Is high aground. It draws seven sod a half feet of water, sod tbe rlvor Is only tour and a bait in deptb. The rebels have, for the present, aban doned It, and taken the engine out. Thus ends the ram panic. AH glory to tbe navy. I will forward further particular* when known. CAITAIN SMITH'S PBSPATl ?. A later despatcb from Captain Alexander Smith, In command of tbs naval flotilla In tbe Sound, and person ally in command of tbs gunboats during tbe engagement with the mm, has been received. He states that he captured the Bombshell, with thirty seven ij-l toners, officers and men. that our shot had no perceptible effect upon the ram. close along Ide. but yet bo thicks It is somewhat damiged. Our loss in tbe largo vessels Is five killed and twenty-six wounded. The gillant Captain Is able to maintain himself against any rorce tlis rebels can send. Captain Smith and command merit tbe hirbest om roendation; and, though the ram is uot destroy od, the prestige of success is lost to It, and this constitute its lormidabiilty. This encounter bis hud an excellent moral efiect, serving to inspiro both the army and navy with renewed confidence in tho gallantry and ability of our gunboat service. Iu addition, tbe intelligence has harl a most happy Inlluenco on tbe properly holders and residents in this vicinity, in tbs assurance U affords that where tbe Uag float* protection to themselves and property Is guar aiiteod. TKt THREATENED ATTACK UPON NEWBERN. Harnt***, N. C , May T, 1M4.
