Hushed be each sorrowing murmur, And let no hot tear be shed, As in elow inarch with drooping standards, Ye bear back the gulluut dead. Dead ! dead ! with a death so royal That our full hearts dare not weep Gently luy the true and knightly To his holy, happy sleep. It is well our sad blood-oDoring Should bo so pure a breast, That the coward's treacherous bullet Should find this stainless crest. For among hero saints and martyrs, Now to claim him bending down, There is none bears a sole mure loyal, None who wears a brighter crowu. Blessed they among the children Whom dear mother-laud has nursed, Whose joyous blood benealb her banner, Gushes fullest, freest, Grst. Wrap the flog he loved about him, Beside him place his maiden blade, Fold the cold hands prayerfully Above the heart iu stillness laid. Happy hero ! on the field promoted, From colonel's tent to patriot's grave ! Bear to his rest the youthful martyr, Loved of the lund he died to save. A Chaplain Arrested by Secessionists. The Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Pmi tells this story of a chap lain who fell among thieves : The chaplain of the Fourth Pennsylvania regiment, probably fond of adveuturo, un dertook a pedestrian expedition over the long .bridge and into Virginia ou Friday. Before lie advanced far into the interior, his attention was onested by the approach of an aimed squad of soldiers, who made hiui a prisoner. The Rev. Mr. Daniels is one of those men who are not easily alarm ed either by threats or superior numbers, lie was pretty closely questioned, and during- the conversation Dauiels informed them that he came here to preach, but he was prepared to fight also, if the occasion re quired it. He said that he wag in their hands, but if they moved off with him, they would find the guard at the bridge, with a battery of artillery, on their heels before they reached the heights ahead. A con sultation resulted in the release of Mr. Dauiels. A Dictator Called for. Everybody almost from the start has seen what tho needless rebellion of the Gulf States would end in a military des potism. In every step of its progress the Montgomery Oovernment Las ignored the people. It precipitates the states in which it dominates into rebellion, on the false plea that their riirhU were about to be taken fr.m thorn by the Repnbnean Administra tion, and, under the txeiteraent thus provi ded, contentions were called, the people have been defrauded of their rights. The sworu guardiaus of their righti'and inter ests have betrayed them iuto the keeping of Jefferson Davis and his satelites, and now Mr. Davis unites in his own person the powers, of President, military commander, aud dictator. The Richmoud Examiner boldly says: 'We need a dictator.' 'Usur pation of power,' it says, 'by tho chief (Davis,) for the preservation of tho people from robbers and murderers, will be reck oued aa geuius aud patriotism by all sensi ble men in the world now, and by every historian that will judge the deed hereafter.' Xbt people of Maryland aud Virginia have had an opportunity to judge of the character of the .oldiers imported from the boulb and wo doubt not tho Examiner corectly descr.boa them 88 'robbers and murderers.' ihey must be put down with the strong baud. To this complexion bai it come already Usurpation of power is extolled as patriot' ism, aud A Dictator called for to protect the mother of States! Poor old Virginia! From the Springfield Republican. RUMINATIONS. A Series of ESSAYS UPON HUMAN LIFE. BY TIMOTHY TITCOMB. CHAPTER VII. I have renson to believe that God loves Sliukers, but 1 do not thing he admires them. I do not see how ho can ; but per haps this is not a competent reason to offer in the premises. I saw a wngmi load of whnt I supposed to be Sliukers of both sexes tiding nlong the street, tho other day ; and I wondered what I should think of them if I had madu them. I think I should have been about equally vexed and nniused to see the lines that I hud mude beautifully disguised, and every gracegiving swell ef limb and bust, upon which I had exercised Mich cquisiie toil, carefully hidden. They sat up very straight and prim, iu a very square wagon, behind a square-trotting horse, driven by "right lines" iu a pair of hands that seemed to grow out of the dri ver's stomach, while his elevated, rectangu lar elbows cut ligidly against the air on either side. It was a vision for a painter a house painter "a painXer by trade." The long-haired, meek looking men, with their flat crowned, broad brimmed hats, straight coats and neutral colors, and tho women with their sugar-scoop bonets, white ker chiefs and struight waists, looked like cases of faded wax-figures, in prison uniform, that had "come dowu to us from a former gene ration. I heaved a sigh as the wagon-lond of mortified and badly-dressed flesh passed out of sight, and woundered if the souls iuside of those bodies were ns angular as their covering. I did not believe it I could not believe it. I have no doubt that underneath those straight waistcoats hearts have throbed at the sight of woman mid child, and longed for home and family life, with yearnings that could not be uttered. Those strniglit-laecd sensibilites have been thrilled by beauty, and buthed iu the grace of glory of the life oronnd them. Trees have whispered to them, brooks have called to them with laughter, rivers have smiled upon them in sunshine, the gtent sky .-has bent over them with inlinite tenderness aud fullness of beauty, and they huve felt what they could not tleline. It was something very wrong, they supposed, and so they buttoned their straight jackets around them turned their eyes away from beholding vani ty, and thought they hud douo an excellent thing. I know that those young women, with their abominable clothing outside, and their crushed und abused sympathies inside. are unhappy, unless they have all been mer cifully transformed into fanatics. It is use less to tell me that a man can ignore or tromple to death the strongest passion of his nature the strongest, the purest aud the most ennobling and be a happy man. It is useless to say that n mau or woman can walk through a world of beauty themselves the most beautfull of all things and bind thcmslves up iu unbecoming drapery, and smother all their impulses to express the beauty with which God inspires them, and do it with coutent and satisfaction. It can not be doue. So, when this wngon-lond of Shakers drove out of sight, I heaved a sigh, for I kuew that uot to be unhappy in the life which was typified in their dress and establish ment, would be a greater misfortune, essen tially, than dissatisfaction and discontent would be. If they were happy in their life, they must have become perverted in their natures, or indurated, bcyound the suscepti bility to receive the impressions of healthy men and womcu. If God ever put anything majestic and noble into a man, and gave him a fitting frume for it, lie uever intended that it should be hidden iu a meal ha or permanently quenched under a smock frock. Ju the infinite variety which he bus intro duced iuto Im in un character and into human forms and faces, there is no warrant for dressing men iu uniform, but u most em phatic protest aguinst it. If God made woman beautiful, He made her so to be looked at to give pleasure to the eyes which rest upou her and .bo has no busi ness to dress herself us if she were a hitch ing post, or to t runt-form that which should give delight to those umong whuui she moves, into a ludicrous caricature of a woman's form. I repeat thut I have every reason to be lieve that God loves Shakers, but I do not think He admires them. If God admires the bodies He bus made, Ho cunuol admire them when they ure covered by the Shakers dress, for it spoils the looks of them, and differs essentially from the plan which He pursues in draping all other forms of life. Thero is no gruee about it, aud beauty of color. God admires clouds, I doubt uot when painted by the setting sun, aud slurs flushing iu the heavens, aud the fluwers of myriad hues that are scattered over the earth, but if these are objects of his special admiration, us they are of ours, wlim cuti He think of a drab shaker bonnet ? What can He think when mau aud woman, the glory aud crown of His creation, are entirely over-topped aud thrown into tho shade by birds aud bees and blossoms, and go poking arouud tho world iu unexampled aud ingeniously contrived ugliness? What does He think of men aud women who take that passion of lore, which was intend ed to make them happy, and give them sweet companionship, aud bear youug chil dren to their urins, and trample it under feet as au uuholy thing, and to welcome to their hearts, iu its stead, blackness, and duikess and tempest t What does he think of lives out of which are shut all tucuuinn aud all individuality, aud all love and ex pression of beauty and all vivifying, liberaliz ing aud humanizing experience '! I owe no grudge to Shakers. I like their applo-sausc, (they ak a thrifty price for it) aud have faith iu tho geuuiueucss aud the geuerution, under favoiblo conditions, of their garden seeds ; but I object to their style of life and piety, aud to everything outside of Shukerilom which looks like it. I object to this whole idea (aud the Shakers have uot mouoplized it,) that God takes delight in the voluntary personal mortifica tion of His children, aud that He approved of their going about, sad faced aud straight laced, studiously avoidiug oil tcmptatioo to enjoy themselves. 1 have seem a deacon in the pride of Lis deep humility. He combed bis hair straight A us iu to is to is it and looked studiously nftfr the main chance, and while he looked, ho employed himself in setting a good example. His dress wa rigidly plain, and his wiTo wai not Indulged in the Vanities of millincrv nn.l nimnim. making. He never j.,kpd. lie did not know what a j..ke was, anv further than to know thut it was a sin. Ho carried n Sun day face through the week. Ho did not mingle in the happy social parties of his neighborhood. He n, a deacon. He starved his social nature because he was deacon. He refrained from all the partici pation in a free and generous life because hu wus a deacon. le made his children hate Sunday because he was n deacon. Ho so brought them up that they learned to con sider themselves uiifoilnnato in being the children orn deacon. They were pitied by other children because they were tho chil dren of a deacon. His wire was pitied by other women because she was the wifo of deocon. Xubody loved him. If he came into a circle where men were laughing or telling stories, they always stopped till he went out. Nobody ever grasped his hand cordially, or slapped him on tlio shoulder, or spoke of him as a good follow. He seem ed as dry and hard as n pieeo of jerked beef. There was no softness of character no juiciness no loveliness in him. Now it is of no use-for me to undertake to realize to myself that God admires such a character as this. I do not doubt that he loves the man, os He loves all men, but to admire his style of manhood and piety is impossible for any intelligent being. It lucks the roundness and fullness, and rich ness and sweetness, that belong to a truly admirable character. Such -a man carica tures Christianity, and scares other men away from it. Such a man ostentatiously presents himself as one in whose life religion is dominant. It is religion that is sopppos ed to run down that long face, and inspire that stiff demeanor, and to make him at all points on uniitractive mid unlovable man. Of course it is not religion that does any thing of tlie kind, but it, has the credit of it with the world, and the world does not like it. It looks around, und sees a great many men who do not pretend to religion at all, and yet who arc very lovcable men. If re ligion can transform a pleasant man into most unpleasent one, und change a free, bright nnd happy home into a dismal place or slavery, and blot out a man's esthetic and social nature, the world naturally thinks that getting religion would be almost as much of a misfortune as getting some mel ancholy chronic disease, and I do uot blame it. It is not to be wondered ut that the world should mistake, very much, tho truo naturo of Christianity, when Christians themselves eutertaiu such giievous errors about it. I suppose God is attracted to very much the same style of churactcr that men are. Christ loved a young mau at first sight, who lacked the very thing essential to his highest manhood. But lie liked the kind of man Ho saw before Him. He was up right, frank-hearted, open-minded, and "Je sus beholding him, loved him." There are men whom one cannot help loving and ad miring though they lack a great many things things very 'needful' to make them per fect men. Now I put it to good, conscien tious Christian men and women whether they do not take more pleasure iu the so ciety of the world, than in tho society of any of that cluss of Christians of whom tho deacon I have mentioned is a type. I know they do, and they cannot help it. There is more of that which be longs to a first class christian character, in the former than in the latter, und if I were culled upon to tct the two men by commanding them respectively to sell what they huve and give to the poor, 1 should be disappointed were the deacon to behave ihe best. A character which religion does not fructify does uot sullen, enlarge, beautify and enrich ;s not benefited by religion or, rulhcr, has not po.-sessed itself of reli gion. God loves that which is beautiful and attractive in character, just asimicu as we do, und it makes no difference where he sees it. He does not dislike the ami uble trails of a sinner because ho is a sinner, nor does he uilmire those traits ot a chiis'.iuu which wo feel to bo contemptible, simply because they belong 'to a christian. chnsiiau sucked dry of his huiuauity, is jincelfss und us flavorless as a sucked orange, and I believe that God regards him in the same light that we do. He will save such I ttoubt uot, for their faiihj uud, the comiug world they will learn what they do not know litre ; but the question whether they are as well worth saving us some of their neighbors may, I think be legitimately entertained. Iu saying this, I mean to be neither light nor irreverent. I mean simply to indicate thut some men are worih a great deal moie to themselves uud their fellows than others. So, when I look abroad upon tho world, and see meu shaving their heads, aud wear ing nasty hair shirts, aud shutting them selves np in cell, oud living lives of celiba cy, uud when I see women retiring from iho world which they were sent to adorn, populate and bless, aud Sliukers driving arouud iu square wagons uud studiously ugly movements, aud christians who should kuow better abandoning all the bright and cheerful things of life, uud feeling that there merit iu mortification, I cannot but feel that God looks down upon it all with sad ness and pity. After doing everything in His power to make His children happy after hlling the world witu gooa iiiings lor their use, and giving them abuudaut facul ties for enjoying them after cudowing them with beauty, und a seuso of that which U beautiful it must be 6ad to Him see them wandering about in strange dis guises, hugging to their half rebellious hearts the awful raistako that, however much they may suffer, they ero gaiuiug fa vor thereby in the sight of their Maker. course, 1 believo iu self-denial, aud in the uobility of self-denial for the good of others ; but I believo that all self-denial that par takes of the character of pcuance.in whatever form t uuder whatever circumstances it may develop itself, is always a thing of mischief, aud always a thing of error. It has its ba sis in the miserable theory that thero is Bomethina' in the passious and appetites with which God has constituted mau that essentially bad a theory as impious as is injurious as fatal to all just concep tions of the diviuo Deing aud of man's re lations to Him, as to all human happiucsa a a Everything which is trnlv admirable i good, nnd good and desirable in the degree by which it is admirable. A beautiful fac and form are admirable, nnd just ns g'o 1 as they are admirable just ns good in their element of beauty. They nro good for that quality, and in that quality, which excites our admiration. A beautiful bonne?, a iKMiutiruI dress, a beautiful necklace, nre all admirable. brooch or nnq poott beenuso they are admirable, or good because everything admirable is necessarily good. A family over which the father presides with tender dignity, and in whi.h the mother moves with love's divinest ministry where the faces of innocent children nre shining, while their voices mako music sweeter than the morning songs of bitds is admirable, nnd it is good in till those respects which make iUidmirublc. A well-dressed manor woman is admirable, and that thing is good in itself which makes them so. A man who earric his heart iuhis hand, who deals both justly and generously by men, who bears a sunny face aud pleasant words iuto society, whose cultured mind enriches freely all with whom it is brought into relation, who has abundant charity for the wt-ak and erring, and who takes life nnd what it brings him contentedly, is an admirable man, und gooa in all tlie points which make him ad mirable. A house that presents a harmo nious nnd handsome exterior to the eye of the passenger, nnd whose interior combines equal convenience and elegance, is admira ble, and, by that token, good. Now these very simple prepositions have their correlutives, which it is not, necessary to set down in order, any further than fair ly to illustrate my point. Things that ore not admirable are not good. If the dress of a Shaker is not admirable, it is not good. If that sort of life which is led in a clois ter, by monks and nuns, is not admirable, it is not gocd. If a man who prt fesscs to be a christian lives a life out of w hich is shut nil with which an unsophisticated hu manity sympathizes, a lilo barren of attrac tive fruit a life bare in all its suriouudings a life w ith no genial flow i expression a life of niggardly negatives rather than of generous positives then that life is not ad mirable, u if it bo not admirabln, it cannot be good iu those respects. A mau may carry a long with such a life as this a epotiess con science & a strict devotion to apprehend du ty, k these may be admirable and g .od, but the othor characteristics cannot be either ; anM however much God mav approve his honest heart and honest endeavor, He can not admire the style of manhood in which they have their dull and difficult illustra tion. Tho idea that I wish definitely to convey is this; that on the basis of a right heart, God would have us build up a bright generous, genial, expressivo christian char acter, and use gratefully and gladly all those things which Ho has prepared to make life cheerful and admirable. I be lieve a saint ought to have a better tailor than a sinner, und bo in all manly ways a better fellow. I believe a true chiistiun should be in everything thut constitutes and belongs to a man tho most admirable man iu the world. I have an idea thuffeGod looks with the same kind of contempt on tho prominent characteristics of certain styles of christian men aud women that men of the world d. There is nothing admirable in cant and whine, and nasal psalm-singing, ami men whose hoar's are livers und whose blood is bile ; and I cannot believe that He blames people for not admiring them, and not be ing attracted to ihem. I do not believe that nil admirable christian life is repulsive to the men of tho world. I believo that wherever the human mind rec-gn:Z!S a a rounded, chastened, rich and ooisp ikeu christian character, whether it belong to manhood or womanhood, it admires it, and feels uttracted to it by the dc'iee in which admires it. I believe, moreover, thai the Christianity wh'ch discards us vanities thosu thiiJLTs which God has provided for the pleasure of His children, and mortifies tho lovo of beauty, and adopts the theory that Goil is pleased with penance, and de grades, abuses and traduces the body to win greater sanctity of soul, aud finds a sin iu every sweet of sense, is a bustard Christianity. God is uot tLo God of tho dead, but of the living. CHAPTER VII. THE WAR COMMENCED! Virginia Invaded, Confederate troops driven back. Col. Ellsworth shot. His Assassin slaughtered, Alexandria taken, Present from Loyal Americans Abroad, Ohio 1st and 2d Regiments reached Washington through Baltimore. NEW YORK, May 24. The Richmond Examiner says that Gcu. Johnston, commander of the L'tah Expe dition, has been ordered to the command of the Confederate forces at Harper's Ferry. Also that Gen Beauregard lias been or dered to Norfolk, und that Jeff Davis will bo at Richmond on Monday next. Pussengors from Pui kersburgh coulirra the accounts of presenco of Virginia troops at Grafton, aud reinforcements of Williams port. Four moro cannon were put in position at Point of Rocks last night. Troops passed through Baltimore to-day for Washington, among them two Ohio Regiments from Philadelphia. Rumors are flyiug about here to the ef fect that tho Secretary of State received to-day dispatches from England declaring thut it wus no longer iu tho power of her Majesty's Government to accept the pro position of the Admiuistratiou to recognize the code of the Congress of Paris of 1856 denouncing privateering us piracy. A battery of tho celebrated Wbiiworth guns, twelve pounders, with ammunition uud carriages complete, has just arrived iu this city as a prtseut to the government from Putriotic Americans abroad. Each oue of the guus bear the following iuciip- tiou "1 roui loyal Aiuencaiis iu kui'opo to the U. S. Goverumeut 1861." Special to tho World Georgo W. Donu, a well kuowu resident of this city, reached here from the rebel confederacy. He is last from Tenuessce via Cairo, ho reports that supplies are uow cut off from W esteru Teunessue aud that great fear of starvatiou oi'ti v & ilti Saw iu Memphis about 3,000 troops, fur nished from the Batou Rouge Arsenal There are two batteries on the Mississippi, Lctweeu Memphis aud Cairo. Many of the troops ore northern men who have been impressed into (he service. Half the sol diers thnre refused to leave the city, and the government issued a proclamation or dering oil companies to disband who did ti' t enter the service of the south uncondi tionally. Ammunition was very scarce, nnd no unnecessary Oritur was nermiitpd ; Two companies in Memphis ate composed , 01 cnain gang convicts. Mr. Donn confirms tl, report of an en tire prostrution of all kinds of business. : Passengers who arrived here to-day from Wheeling, over the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, stato that from the Ohio River to within ten miles of Harper's Ferry, the s'.nrs attd stripe were flying. . Dr. Tho. Miller, b prominent citizen of Washington, was arreted to-day, charged with secretly receiving and delivering let ters from and to secessionists. Mansfield retains him for examination. A government steamer left for Fort Mon roe this afternoon. Several members of the press go in anticipation of a big battle iu thut vicinity. WASHINGTON, May 24. As wos supposed would be the case late Inst night, several regiments with the New Jersey and Michignn Brigades, Ellsworth's Zouaves and the District Mililia, crossed into Virginia. The Virginia pickets having been previ ously driven in by the advance guards, one of the regiments took the toad to Fairfax Court House, about twenty miles from Washington, while another one, the Jersey, stopped at the Forks, a. mile from the Long Bridge, awaiting orders. An advance iuto Virginia was also made from the month of the Potomac Aqueduct at Georgetown. The New York lih regi ment wus among the troops, nnd nficr sev eral hours march occupied a point between the bridge and Columbia Springs on the line of the Washington and Alexandria Railroad. The District of Columbia troops retuni i.d to Washington. From six to ten thousand troops were sent, over into Virginia. The New Yoik Zouaves, 11th 59lh, and Jersev Regiments hold Alexandria, while Arlington Heights are occupied by several regiments. Tho entrance iuto Alexandria was at tended by on event which has 'cast tho deepest gloom over this community. Col. Ellswoith who had hauled down tlie seces sion flag from the Marshall House, was soon nl'terwurds shot by a concealed foe. Accounts from Alexandria are somewhat contrad ictory, but there is no doubt of the fact that a mau nomed Jackson who shot Col. Ellsworth was instantly put to death some say by both bullet and bayonet. When the Federal troops reached Alex andria the Virginia soldiers fired at them, and then fled. Visitors to t lint city say the scenes were intensely exciting. Feder al vessels were in the meantime before Al exandria. The troops at Fairfax Court House took possession of the Junction of the Orange and Alexandria and Mauasscs Gap Rail road, with a view of intercepting the ad vance of Virginia troops towards Alexan dria from Richmond and other points Nearly three thousand troops arrived in Washington yesterday. Among the force sent over to Virginia were two batteries and two companies of irtillery . The news of Col. Ellsworth's death was not generally known throughout Washing ton un! il towards 10 o clock to day. The excitement was intense, especially anions the military, who express the greatest de sire to be sent over to Virginia. Three hundred troops from y. Carolina arrived ut Richmond last Monday night, and are now stationed near Old I'niot Comfort. They were to bo followed by 500 mote iu a day or two, from tho same state, I making a full regiment of 1000 meu. 1200 Tennessee troops arrived at Richmoud ou Tuesday. The camp opposite Williamsport, Md., is being reinforced, uud the construction of batteries on the Heights ou the Mu'ylaud side is still being curried ou with vigor. Another Extloit ix Missoit.i. Tho Union men of Washington county, having been threatened with extermination, sent for aid to Gen. Lyon at St. Louis, who in response dispatched to Potosi, Company A of the F.th Regiment, Capt. Cole, number ing 150 men. Arriving there before day break, ou Wednesday, May 15th, they im mediately threw a chain of sentinels arouud the entire town. Guards were then stationed arouud the dwellings of the most prominent Secessionists, and, shortly ufter daylight, some 150 men found themselves prisoners, and were marched off to the Court House. Here tho- prisoners were formed iu lint?, and by the assistance of a gentleman who had been driven out of Potosi, who know all of the lohabitarls of the place, the Union men were recognized und released, amonntiii'' to over half of thoso taken prisoners. Some fifty of the Secessionists were also released ou parole oi tionor, niter subscribing to tho usual oath. not to take up arms against the United States, and nine ot the leaders were mart-hod ou lo the cars. The guard then mude a decent on a secession lead manufactory, which bo- lougod to a man who had been furuisbmg lead to the southern Rebel-'. Iho guard captured severul pistols, rifles, shot guus, and a quantity of Secession uniforms, most of Hem unfinished, und some uuiform cloth. Afier being furnished with breakfast and dinner, and very handsomely treated by the Union men of Potosi, and invited to stay a month iu thai place at their expeusc, the command started for home. to at Wigfull, the late reckless, dare-devil Texan senator, is orgauiziug a piuked regi ineiit of one thousand men, selected from the whole army of tho Confederate Slates. No mau iu the regiment is to weigh uuder oue uuuured aud seventy pounds, to be uuder six feet high, or over thirty years of ago. Each mau will be armed with an Enfield rifle, two navy revolvers aud ' a six pouud bowie knife. It is suggested that when once put Into the field, Col. Wilson's "roughs," of New York, be set upou this crack regiment of Wigfall. There would be some dreadful chawing up done on both Bides, no doubt. 1 Skizcrb of all the Tfi.toRAra OrncR, I the North ! At poicisely 3 o'clock ,t Monday afternoon, by order of the Govern, ment, a decent was made by the U. S. Marshals upon every considerable tekgrapA office throughout the free tlatet and the auw viulnted dupnteJia of the tweh month pad were seized. The object was to obtain el dence of the operations of the Southern Rebels with their Northern accomplices, which the confidential teleerams possinir between them could moRt certainly farnlsh. The seizure in oil (he principle cities vtrt made at ptrriscly the tame time, so as to pre vent the destruction or evidence wulca might have followed the receipt of warn, ing from any particular point. The whole matter was managed with the greatest Se crecy , and so well planned, that the project was a complete success. By this bold maneuver the Government has obtained, possession of a mow of evidence of the great est importance. In the city of N. Y. alone the dispatches in the hands of the Federal officers amount to many thousand, and in clude, of course, information In regard t the purchase of arms, ammnnitioo, and equipments, purchase and outfit of Tesseli, diplomatic end financial arrangements, the negotion of Rebel loans, the purchase and treachery of array and navy officers, the se cret plans for dividing the people of the North, the progressive operations of the Government toward suppressing the re bellion, and every other imaginable species of testimony. This act is one of the most salutary ana most successful of tho war. Washington Correspondence of the N. Y. Times. The American Gov't and Privateering. The article in the Times is correct in its assertiou that our government never reject ed tho proposition for the abolition of pri vateering, but me.rely suspended the nego tiation peuding a proposition Jor amend ment. Secretary Seward, finding the corres pondence in this condition, on the 21th of April sent instructions to our Ministers lo Europe to do just what the Times suc-gests that is, to notify the treaty of Paris that the United States government accepts the first point of said treaty, and agrees to the abolition ot privateering. This must prove a crushing blow to the Southern Confederacy, for it not only de bars Great Britain, France, Rnssia, Prus sia, Surdiuia and Turkey from coanteuaao ing Jeff Davis's privateering in an way, but it obliges them, through active opera tions, by their fleets, to suppress such prl vateers as pirates. This ends that dream, and leaves the southern conspirators no means of doing us serious harm except by invading the free states. Another point is gained by the Secreta ry's master stroko of last month. The TJ, States now becomes entitled to all the bene? fits of all the points in the Paris treaty. The fourth point, providing that blockades, to bo respected, must be effectual, carriea with it the corrolary that, if effectual, it must be respected, consequently, so long as our blockade is made cffectualgagainst the public enemy, all the European pow ers above named are bound to respect it, and certainly cannot interfere by force, This conclusion dispels the other southern dream, thut Englaud(aud France will raise the blockade in order to get cotton. Thar are clearly bound by treaty stipulation not to do so, to say nothing of the general obligations of morality and international law. The New York Times pays the following compliment to tho great West : There never existed such splendid material for soldiers as is furnished iu these warlike children of the free West. They are full of robust health, expert in the nse of weap ons, inured to hardships, burning witu enthusiasm, intelligent, resolute, proud. brave lo a fault, and patriotic as they are brave. They comprehend throughly the mighty issue for which they bottle, and feel the infinite impoitanco to themselves and their posterty, nnd to all mankind forever, that they be setled now and irrevocably, and that Justice aud Liberty, and Order, bear undivided sway all over the Great Valley,' from the Gulf lo the sources of tho Father of Waters. A Loyal Officer. Tho Philcdolphia Inquirer of a late date says : "First Lieutenant William D. Whipple, the Third Iuluntry, U. S. Army, arriv ed at Norristown on Saturday, having es caped from Indianola, Texas, after refusing to give his parole not to serve against toe rebel army during the war. But oue o'her of thirty-five officers taken prisoners by Col Van Dorn refused to sign the parole. Lietttenont Whipple escaped on a schooner to New Oi leans, then through tho country via Cairo, to this city, traveling incognito as a citizen of Texas. When Col. Van Dorn, who had been a companion in arms or Whipplfl. at iho same post, for several years offerfd his hand "l)0" receiving his sword, sayiny, "Well, Whipple, it is but the fortune of war that you should bo m prisoner," Whipple uuswered, "Sir I do not take the hand of a traitor and a rebel ; and is not the fortune of war, but treachery, that places me in yoor hand. ' ' In the Kentucky Legislature, the House has concurred in the Senate amendment requiring the State Guard to take the oath support the Federal Constitution. The resolution declaring that Gov. Magoffin's proclamation contains the true statement of the position of Kentucky was rejected. There was a riotous excitement Si'd St. Joseph, Missouri. A United States icr was raised over the Post-Offioe. A ' crowd soon collected, cut dowp the pole and removed the flag. They then boistea in Stato flag, but this was 'taken dowa sy order of the ringleader. Tfce mob- thA visited another point and-compelled 'IM Stars and Stripes to be taken la. )t I St. LOUIS, May 24.
