T&ey have been like Irish men at Donnybrook Fair, "spoiling for a fight," anxious for somebody to pitoh in to them. The World, especially, had all the swagger and bravado of a professional bully. It fired off semi rebellious sentiments with a sort of tri umph. It laid in effect j '-Touch ns if yon dare, Mr. Lincoln. Interfere with ns in the slightest degree, allow the least of your shoulder-strapped minions even to lay his Utile finger on us, and an out raged people, rising in their might, with all the terrifio power with whioh a nation bands against oppressors, will .hurl yon froJi your tyranioal throne and revenge the insult to the liberty of the press." Bo rente i the World. And now what happens T Why, Mr. Lincoln, in the very faoe of :his nighty menace, has been and gone and done it For three days the offioe of the New Tork World was closed by military authority. The people knew It, the New Tork riot ers (Qorernor Seymour's "friends") koew it it went forth everywhere across the land. Was there any mighty commo tion T Was there any sign of an outraged people rising in their terrible wrath to revenge the blow at their libei ties ? Was there any infuriated mobofblooiy riotm? Not a bit of it The people assented, qui etly, to the act, and acqoiesoel, with a feeling of satisfaction, in it. We hope the World will learn from this that the nation is aa yet by no means ready to rush into revolt, at 'evolutionary bidding. Ohio for Lincoln.

Here is an opportunity for retal iation or exohange for northern news paper correspondents who are held by the enemy, by a most wanton barbarity. It is not that we have not had rebel editors enough in our hands to ransom all our correspondents from this ernel captivity, but beeause oar authorities have neglected the means that have at times fallen into their hands to protect them.

[Special Dispatch to the Cleveland Leader.] First Dispatch. REPORT OF TREASURY INVESTIGATING COMMITTEE. BUTTII. WaSHUOTov, May 24. The evidence before the Treasury investigating Commit tee, is in some oases of the most conflicting nature. A leading railroad man and an other prominent oitiien of New Tork, swear positively to an attempt on the part of a certain Bank Note Company, to bribe Mr. Clarke to abandon the effort to print Government notes and bonds in the De partment. The President of the Bank Note Company swears directly and posi tively to the contrary. The evidence about alledged immorali ties in the private life of officials in the Printing Bureau, consists almost wholly of the affidavits of prostitutes submitted to the Committee by the deteotive who worked up the oase. The Committee has not deoiied whether to summon these wo man or not. But a single lady employed in the Department has been found to make any charge of the kind. She swears that oa the oooasion one ef the subordinate Clerks in the Burem winked at her; and that at another time he made an ambigu ous remark to her, which was susceptible of an improper construction. a. iirii fbok oiiieax h'olillav. It is understood that Gen, McClellannas written to one of his friends that in his opinion unless Grant has anderated Lee's strength the only contingency In whioh his campaign is likely to prove a failure is a failure to receive sufficient supplies. DEMOCIATIO raaSIDKHTHLCAHDIDATX. Democratic leaders in Congress begin to agitate the propriety of postponing their nomination of a Presidential candi date, till the close of the summer campaign THE IRON GLADS. The House Naval committee listened to day to a majority report in favor of New London as a site for Iron Cld Navy Yard, an exceedingly elaborate minority report in favor of Leagne Island has been pre pared. The House Military Cemmittee agreed this morning to squelch all propositions to increase the pay of army officers. The administration members talk of holding a joint caucus from the two Houses to eonsider the questions raised by the ap plieation of Senators and Representatives from Arkansas for admission. Tbe whole question of reconstruction is involved and the party is utterly without any fixed poll oy of the subject. The three Representa tives were heard at length in support ef their claims before the House Election Committee this morning. They made plausible statements and some of the Com mittee are inolined to receive their appli cation with considerable favor. ARRIVAL OF WOUNDED. A train loaded with fifteen hundred of our -wounded from, the Frederioksbnrg hospitals came in last night; those not able to eome by rail were placed on trans ports and sent around by water.; The wounded are all removed from Frederioks- bura;. ...... Second Dispatch. Second Dispatch. WASHINGTON. May. 25. The feeling over the news from the front as announced in an offioial . bulletin, is hopeful bat not enthusiastic. Nothing is expected from Sherman till the fall of Atlanta. There are minors that .th rebels are evacuating Richmond, but they are utterly onfonnded. The House Noval Committee took np the subject of the construction of the Na val Engines. This morning Qnintard of New York, and Bushnell of New Haven, were examin ed at some length. The Committee ex pect to report upon the subject before Con gress finally adjourns. The Tariff bill will not oome before the House until Saturday, and probably not till Monday next. Large numbers of Peansylvanians here, were urging still higher duties upon steel and iron. It is said that the bill will, on an average, oome fully np to the resolution temporarilyad ding to the present rates. Several more witnesses were examined by the Treasury Investigating Committee this morning. The aoousers begin to feel as though they were In a bad predicament. They have as yet utterly failed to sabetantiate or even give b reasonable show of probability to a single ohargo. This, too, in the face of the faet that so bitter an enemy of the ad ministration, and so violent aa aoouser if the Department aa James Brooks is a lead ing member of the committee. A statement in a New York paper, par porting .o give an aosonnt of Cabinet meeting yesterday, at which certain mem bers denonnoed the policy of the Govern ment in the recent Spanish extradition ease, and in suppression of newspapers, is utterly and absolutely unfounded. - The debate in the Senate to-day looks as if the gentleman having the assurance to olaim a seat in that body from Arkansas stood a very slim chance, indeed, of geU ting it Charges are made that he voted for the Secession Ordinance in Arkansas. FROM LOUISIANA. [Special to the Cleveland LEADER.] Mouth or tbi Rid Rrvu, via Caiao, " May 25. J The fleet of gunboats and transports are all out of the Red River. General Smith's Corps are embarked on transports, and General Banks' army are marching across from Simmesport to Mor gan aie. Generals Canby and Banks are here. It is not known what will be the next move ment. I New Obliaxs, 19th, via Caixo, May 26. All feel very gloomy here about the dis aster on the Red River, the oon sequences of whioh, are beginning to be felt through out this department. , Before Banks, ad vance from Natchetorhes, all was bright and oheerfuL Now all is changed, and the rebels are threatening defeat at Franklin, Brashear City and land at this point. They are persecuting the residents who hive taken the Amnesty oath, and General Polk has sent a force to Mississippi to an noy as. The guerrillas have fired into our steamers in several instances below the Red River, but doing ns as yet, but little damage. j Major-General MoClernand is lying dan gerously ill in this eity, from some chron ic disease.

Mr. Echenck reported a bill authorising the President to take me sures to con struct a railroad from the valley of the Ohio to East Tennessee. Consideration fixed for next Tuesday. The Speaker laid before the House the reply of President Linooln to the resolution adopted yesterday, endorsing the corres pondence between Seoretary Seward and Mr. Dayton, relative to the resolution adopted by the House against the invasion of Mexico by France. Mr. Seward says, it is practically an ex ecutive question, that It does not belong to Congress to take action in the premises, and that, while the President receives the unanimous declaration of the House with the profound respect to which it is entitled, he directs Mr. Dayton to inform the (Tenon government that he does not in tend to impart from onr heretofore enun ciated policy, concerning the French oocn- pauon of Mexico.
