Election First Dy of August. THE GVEKSiOHHIP. Having Blrearly exersieed tbe prerogative of expressing our preference for Governor Harbis as between the two gubernatorial aspirants now in the field, we this morning, in accord ance with a custom Irnz observed by tbe press, plsce bis name at the bead of our columns. We do this, net so much aa tbe advocate of his personal cliims upon tbe confidence and grat itude of tbe people of Tennessee, at in tbe ca pacity cf an Independent journal for tbe good of tbe coTrraonwealth. While we shall aup port bim w tb a proper degree of real, we shall bare no word of abuse or disparagement for tbe Ijocorable and high-toned gentleman who is Lis adversary in tbe contest. Hey have betb entered tbe fieli for he suffrages of tbe p p'.e, and let tbe ballot box speak tbe pro he's preference without stirring up old prejudice or begetting political discord. rtUt REVIVAL OF OLD PARTY IJiSit KS. We bad entertained tbe hope, that after tbe unmistakable and comparatively unanimous edict cf tbe people cf T nnessee at tbe ballot box on Hm eighth of June last, we all, however wide'y rlit idri, wou'd be of one party in tbe futi'e, who? principles would be the same, and whose platform would ignore, If not abso lutely repudiate, every issue not redoanding manifes ly to the weal of our newly adopted j country. But it is with a ft-ling of painful I dlsap-xnrtmer.l that we have recently witness- j e ? r- - nrpufable attempt upon the part I of two or three political journals in tbe State to revive o'.i party feuds, and tbna reopen the : fes'crirr; wondeof patty animoaity tbt hare M yet ecarcelv ha i ime to be staunched of j tbeir bleeding. Having fotigbt tbe cause of soutbern independence as long aa public opin IM would tolerate their treachery, and clung to submission long efter it had ceased to be respectable, these journals orly cea?ed tbeir Ti'uDerations upon tbe Soutb when driven to such a course by tbe probable alternative of becoming victims to the indiscretion of the EGb. Dissatisfied tn their new attitude as co lahorers with tbeir farmer adversaries in tbe political field, they now, like masked batteries in the southern camp, have commenced to in sidiously tura their conten's upon til who bad the temerity to stiver a lance with them previous to the defeat of secession in tbe February elscti.n. For tbe better pur pose of hoodwinking tte honest masses, and of thus effecting tbeir ineffably infamous pur pose, these malcontents are seekicg to organ ize a party in tbe present gubernatorial can vass whose principles are to relate back to tbe oH issues of Union and Secession, or at least be bised upon prejudices engendered by tbos? isue that yet slumbsr like expiring enbers bene .'h the ashes of defeat. ""We can, of co i'se, make no val:d objection to any number of aspirants as thie, augbt we care, as au tumns! leaves being brought into tbe race, nor will we demur because this or. that news paper may exercise its undt-puted right of differing with us in a choice. But we do en ter our emphatic protest, in tbe name of tbe people of Tennessee, against tbe use of base anc! dishonorable mea: s for the purpose ef securing the success of any man whomsoever. We shall be particular in the fir.ure, as we hive been in the past, to say nothing derogatory to the claims of any candidate upon tbe ground of bis having once been the hoaest and conscientious opponent of tbe separation cf Tennessee from tbe old federal Union. We have a right to expect the same courtesy from others, and that man who acts otherwise, either is the Instrument of bis own or another's offic el advancement, must hive a fearful reckooir.g to answer at tbe bar of1 his own conscience. Those who design en tering upen tbe dangerous experiment may as we!' understand in tbe beginning, that tbe people are not prepared to sustain them in tt'is party chicanery, but will be prompt to place all such extiibi ions of mischievous in tent under the seal of their positive disappro bation. Air movement that may be made oy jo'.rr. Is, that are subsidized by self-interest into the support of a csndi late's eiilra to office, having in view the irritation of tbe laues to which we have alluded, or encoura ging scsssin-like assaults upon others who may eppnse their fsvorite, should be visited with a telling rebuke at tbe ballot box at the Auri .it election. When two governments, oncel'ving under tbs same regime, but now as foreign to each other as are France and Ans tria, ire engaged in deadly combat, no politi cal crime that can possibly be conceived of, is eo rOevjr criminal as that which throws tbe firr brand of discord among us, resulting, as it may, in stirring pp a fratricidal war, attended with all its usual concomi tant horrors. It will be well, therefore, far certain journals in Tennessee, that have been yelping at the heels of a gubernatorial candidate who :.as be- n so very unfortunste as to oppose tbeir own pet aspirant, if they would p'u-e sad consider tbe danger of tbe policy they are pursuing. They will discover before three week" uore have passed, to tbeir ex treme chagrin, tbstno man can be foisted upon the people of this State, in any official capacity whatever, through the defunct agencies of par ty intrigue, or by malignant and unmanly as saults upon an opponent whose character is entirely beyond tb? rescb of his traducers. Un less some change for the better soon tak a place in the party-tactics of the class to wbicb we allude, we shall feel justified in believing tbat, a? mere professors of a f-u'h, the participants in this conspiracy arc sheer hypocrites in our political churcb, or else have backslidden into the ii C lelity of unmitigated submissiocism "like the dog returned to bis vomit, and tbe sow to her wailowing in the mire." H Good Ma Deceased. It is with feel ings of deep and unfeirned rrgret that we record the death of C. L Jacob S. Fou'e, which tork lt.ee at his ret-idence in Jackson, Mis ,sn Sunday last. Col. Foufe was a na tive of Baltimrre, Md., from which place be removed to Tennessee, where be was honored ith -tbe confidence of tbe people by being s?ec'ed to tbe legielature. From this Sta'e he removed t Jack' on, Mls., and immediately stood in the front rank of tbe legal profession in honorable conflict with a bar which was second to none in the South. The deceased was in the 5Sh y- arof bis age. Tte Nashville Union learns thst Mont gomery county has now enrolled one thousar d minute men. They hsve one thousand five bnndred shot guns, muskets snd rifles. They also Lnvc seven pieces of artillery, wbicb will in a short time be ready for active service. Tj' comtnanoer is Robert W. Humphreys, a gentleman who led a company gallantly ea some cf the hardest fought battle field. f Mexico. Tbe example thus se. by old Mont-gome-y is worthy of imitation ny every county in the S ate (p"Ws are reliaoly informed, says the Montgomery Pott, tbat a letter has been re ceived in this city, from the Hon. William L Yancey, la wbicb be says tbat our independ ence will certainly be recognised by England during the moi tli of August, and tbat he ex pects to be at borne in September. fTb Montgomery Pott of the 8th inst, aye "Hon. Henry W. H'lliard having re ceived a dispatch sdvisirghim of the serious Illness of bis eon, Dr. Hi. Hard, left this city for Richmond, Va., yesterday morning." no Bits' BtaTTI.K VET. For the past few days tbe whole country has lived in hourly expectancy ef bearing of a regular pitched battle between Gens. John ston and Patterson in Virginia. From the following paragraph, however, which we clip from the Richmond Ditpatch of the 9th inst., it would seem that instead of coming closer together, tbey are getting wider apart: Gen. Johnston has resumed bis original po sition at Winchester. This place is the com manding strategic point of all that country. He moved forward from it to meef Patterson, but tbat general fell back into Mai tinsbuig, to await reinforcements. Having the protection of tbe town as a fortification, and its women and children as a shield, be lies secure. John ston, with his far inferior force, did not feel justified in attacking, and Winchester being the common eonvergme point of several roads, be has felt bound to fall back upon that town, lest McClellan or some other enemy might get into his resr. He thus tains tbe advantage of chosing bis own fighting ground against a superior force, snd places his adversary at the disadvantage of making the attack. Surely after so many efforts to get a fight out of tl.e enemy without success, our general may be excused for resuming bis best position. . Lrops in Montgomery countv.-a respondent of tbe Nashville Union ti,us writes I of the crops in Montgomery county in this i S.a'e: "The wheat harvest in the section of ,. i . ... . , , country that supplies the mills in the vicinity ' of Clarksville is finished, at.d tbe yield is ins- i mense; never equaled in the memory of man. I The corn and grass crops also look even, and promise an abundant yield. Fully oue-balf of the ground usually laid off for tobacco is this season appropriate! to food for man and beast. The stock of hogs is large, so that on the whole the danger of being starved out by tbs abolitionists is a bugbear tbat may do for them to induce the deluded subjects of Kio.r L'ncoln to carry on the unholy war, but has no weight here in the South." far A telegraphic dispatcb to the New Or leans Drlta, dated Richmond, July Uth, says that General Johns on, failing to induce tbe enemy to give bim battle in tbe position he took near Martinsburg, and, fin ling tbat Pat terson was being largely reinforced, re'ired upan Winchester, in order to place himself within reach of the reserved force at Manas- sas Junction. The indications, it adds, are thai the enemy is about to make an early advance upon Fairfax. If this statement be true (and we notice that it is corroborated by the Rich mond Dispatch of the 8 h inst ) the probability is that tbe late rumor of a conflict between the force of Patterson and Johnson is totally un founded. f"Tbe Louisville Courier Las received "positive and reliable information" in accord ance with an understanding with the traitor Andy Johnson as he passed through that State, letters have been written from Kentuckv to that corrupt and infamous man, advising bim that it bas beer, decided to send tbe arms which tbe administration desires to supply to tbe lories In East TenBssee, to their desti- nation via Louisville, Lebanon and Wheeler's Gap. The Wat Thet Love Us. The New Haven Palladium gets off tbe following affec tionately complimentary paragraph : The Sepoyg of tbe South mere cruel and cowardly than ever were the Nirth American Indians saors degraded and loathsome in their horrible barbarities than the vilest of tbe tribes in t.ie center of Africa going beyond the East Indian Thugs, who simply strangle a man, and, so, quickly killing him these sava ges seem bound to keep up their reputation for inhumanity and b.trbarisnr. QfTbe Montgomery Poit, of the !' h inst., says "volunteer companies from all parts cf tbe State are continually passing through our city, bound for tbe scat of war. They are all a stout and brave looking set of fellows, and will do tbeir duty when they meet the enemy." The Nashville Banner says thet at Camp Trousdale, in drawing arms, a few days since, a soldier received the iJentual musket he bore It-rough the Mexican war, bearing his name, which he inscribed upon it when be was la the service ef bis country. Mr. Vallandigham, of Ohio, bas al ready given notice of an intention to Introduce a bill to repeal the odiona Morrill tariff, and so.bst.tute tbe tariff of 1858 The r.orth-west can't " go" that vile impo sition of ar:kee voracity.

Texans ok a Scoutinq Expedition A correspondent writing from Fairfax Court- bouse to the Charleston Mercury, says : Yesterday, Messrs. Thomas Lubbock and Col. Terry, of Texas, wbo had come on to ne gotiate for the acceptance of a company of Texas lar.gers, get up a party and tarted on a scoat. They penetrated to within four or five miles of Alexandrai; passed between the sen tries and tbeir pickets; turned upon the sen tries; shot two, wounding them at least, and took two prisoners, whom they brought to camp, to the great relief of friends wbo saw tbem start, and who were consc'ous of the perilous adventure upon which they started. Col. Terry's horse took the bit between bis teeth and carried his rider at full speed into the picket guard of tbe ene my, but they broke at bis approach, an! soon after, bringing his horse to his senses with tbe butt of bis pistol, hi rejoined his friends in safety. Capt. Lubbock ib brother of tbe pres ent candidate for governor of Texas, and Col. Terry is brother of tbe Judge Terrv wbo killed Broderick in California. It ia hoped tbeir offer of their company to tbe government will be accepted npon tb. terms upon which it is offered, and they will soon be in the field. Reported Capture of Arms Fremont. General Washington, July 5. General Fremont, while in Europe, contracted for no cannon or small arms , ror did he bring any over. The report was a mere conjecture, hazarded by some over anxious newsmonsr. Our govern ment has abundance of excellent arms for all its needs, and the works we have in operation can keep us in full supply for tbe future. In addition to this, a new clipper ship, with a careo of 40 000 stand of arms and a number of rifled cannon, bas been captured off Charles ton by tbe United Sr.ateB steamer Quaker City, wbn- tempting to run the blockade.

The Louisville Journal of this morning has the following : "The Courier calls some of (Jen. Rousseeu's men hard looking caaps. Well, bard looking chaps are often hard figfct ri chaps. Soft looking fellows generally fig ure better in ladies' drawing rooms than in warriors' battle fields. The Louisville tele graph agent of the Southern Confederacy calls Rousseau's men ragamuffins.

Ruggles, a young man seventeen years of age, is at present detained at police headquarters, by order of secre'arv Seward, on the charge of beirg a bearer of dispatches frcm the rebel army, and also aa being an emissary of the rebel government. The prisoner Is a son of Gen. Ruggles, now commander of a portion of the rebel forces is Virginia. He is a very intelligent and highly educated lad, rather p c possessing in appearance, and very engaging in conversation, quick in perception and acute in observation, and seem i eminently adapted to the mission en wbicb be has been sent out. He left Montgomery under private instruction, received from Jeff. Oavis In person, and made his way to Havana. From thst place be proceeded to Aspinwall, where bis over in quisitiveness in relation to American, Ocean and California steamers attracted tbe atten tion and excited the suspicion of tbe American consul, who forwarded a description of his person to Secretary Seward. Directions were at once sent to Superintendent Kennedy to ar rest tbe boy as he landed in New York. De tectives Eustace snd Farley were intrusted with tho caae. The lad arrived here, snd put up at a C rtlandt Btrect hotel, under the name of S yrnour, assuming the name to throw tbe officers off the track, should there be any after him. Three hours 8fter bis arrival, he was safe In tbe bands of tbe detectives, wbo at once lodged bim at headquarters. The papers found upon him disclosed a most inge nious and elaborate plan for capturing the California st'amrrs, the details of wbicb were to be cr.rried out with the greatest secre cy. General Johnson, of Cal icrnia, was to be in thej'plot. Ruggles had also carefully prepared maps and many papers of great value. The arrest is so important tbat Secre tary Seward telograptu d Mr. Kennedy on Sstnrday to use extra precautions in detaining the prisoner. Young as he is be has no little military experience, having been for several years at the naval school at Annapolis. He was born in a fort, was a constant attendant upon bis father, who held a commission in the army of tbe United States, and is there fore wetl calculated to see and comment upon any weak points, inforina ion of which might be of service to the enemy.

Since then tuey have been working continually. We do not know tbe number of garments made, but they go into tbe thousands. In times gone by, it was deemed a great favor for a soldier in going forth to do battle for his country, to take some little gift from the hands of a fair la'dy, the sight and possession of which inspired him to deeds of bravery and chivalry on the battle field If there be anytbii g in such soorenin, our army ought to be inv ncible; for every sol iisff goes to bat le panoplied fr n. bead to foot with a suit made by tbe fairest hands, and bas sent up for bim prayors from the purest hearts.

Fretn th- Ricbmrnd rqnirer of the BJBal On Friday morning, the 5tb Inst., about day break, a skirmih took place Pet ween 100 Lou isiana troops, (20 from each company of Lieut. Col.

As they approached, the eagerness of some of our troops caused them to fire too soon. Tbe ene my, thua warned, hastily fired and commenced an immediate retreat. Unfortunately, one of tbeir shots took effect upon Lieut. Col Dreux, and be died in a few minutes He was in the art of giving the order to fire when he received the fatal wound. The only words he was heard afterwards to say were "don't surren der." The ball passed through his watch crystal and sword belt, and entirely through bis body. The confusion, caused by the fall of Lieut. Col. Dreux. was increased by tbe advance of a body of Virginia cavalry, who were mista ken for the enemy. The enemy themselves claimed to be friends.'and cried, "don't shoot." Taking advantage of his condition of things, the enemy gathered t:p their dead and es caped. BsideB Lieut. Col.

He was devoted to them and they to him. The service has lost a most valuable officer, and the c tv of New Orleans a highly esteemed and most useful citizen. He was ab,-u thirty years of age, and leaves a wife and one child. Tbe lrs r.f tbe enemy, from the causes e plsined. wag much less than it would have been. Frm six to eight arc known to have been killed. The whole body of the enemy would doubtless have fallen into our hands, if tbe skillful arrangements of the Confederate commander had been carried out. Mr. Hack'tt was about twenty-one years of age. He was la tbe ac of taking a second fire at the enemy, when he fell mortally wounded. The zouave who killed Col. Dreu was nh. j served by our troops, and was instantly shot down. The War, The Richmond Whig o' the 'Jth inst. says : Passengers by the central train yesterday report tbat General Johnston has fallen bac's. on Winchester, distant twenty-three miles from Mar insburg. where the enemy remained. Matters remain in afafti quo at "other posts, so far as we are advised. Beverly Tucker, E-q., late consul of the United Ststes, at the port cf Liverpool, ar rivitd in this city jesterday, with dispatches for President Davis. We have not yet had tbe pleasure of an interview with Mr. Tucker, but learn thst he made the innrney from Halifax to this cily by the way of Canada, Michigan and Illinois, and in order to guard still further against detention by the myrmidons of Lin coln, traveled under sn assumed name. He speaks encouragingly, we understand, of an early recognition of tbs Southern Confederacy by tbe government of Great Britain. j Fighting Preachers.

Fl'KTHEU V HTiri E AR FRO.n THE riUHTlN iniSSOCHI. Kansas City, Mo., July 8. We are in d-tbted tf the Kansas Journal for a copy of the Fort Scott Democrat of the 7th, containing sn aecotint of a battle between the Missouri State tro ips under Governor Jack-on and General Rains, numbering, by their accounts, from ten to thirteen thousand, and the United States force under Col. Sigel, numbering one thousand fiv hundred in all. Our fnformaut brvs that on Wednesday, the third inst , the S'ate troops left Rupe's Point and moved South to Murray', six miles. On Friday morning at 8 o'clock, they broke up camp and inarched soutb in the direction of Carthage, the county-seat of Jack son county. At Abbay Fork, seven miles north of Carthage, they were met by Colonel Sigel with fifteen hundred men, who immedi ately gave them battle. IfThe fi-st onset resulted in the State troops being driven back some di3tar.ee, and the offi cers ordered a retreat. The center gave way, but the order not being beard on the flunks, the advancing United States troops were in danger of buing surrounded. 'I he flanks final ly fell back, slowly keeping up tbe fight with their ar'illery, which made fearful havoc in the enemy's ranks. At the crossing of Dry Fork our lines were very near being taken, when by tbe arrival of 200 union men from Shoal Creek, they crossed with a loss cf but five killed and two wou-ided. The battle continued, the United States troops alternately fi;hting and retreating until dark, when they reached Carthage, having crossed Buck branch and Spring river. On the wav the fighting was all done with the artil lery, Col. Seigel retreating aa soon as they ad vanced. It is believed th 't Col. Slegel's object wag to draw the Sfate troops on Carthargc, when, with 4tX) reserve troops at that place, and ex pected reinforcements from Neosho and Sar coxie, be would be enabled to turn and drive back or ront them. The loss on Jackson's side was very great. Our informant says he counted 70 or 80 wound ed left on the field and la houseg by DBS way side. At Dry Fork a large amount of beef was thrown out of wagons, It is supposed to make room for the dead. Another informant residing at Carthage states that he passed over a part of the battle field yesterday morning, and saw wagons ami backs parsing to every direction ga'hTimrup the dead for interment. The loss on the psrt of the State troops cannot be less than from 310 to 500. The ground in many places was strewn with dead horses, and the stench was sickening. The whole country was laid deso late; fences torn down, crops trampled Into the ground, and bouses plundered. He met parties of women wbo stated that everything had been taken from them by tbe State troops except what they bad on their hacks. The retreat was conducted in a stvle worthy of vetersn troops, and wifh as much coolness as upon parade. R was only tbe overwhelm ing od ls on the side of :he secessionists that enabled them to carry the diy. The victory was really wth Siegel It was reported that a night attack had been made on Siegel, and 400 of his troops killed and 000 taken prisoners, with three pieces of arti'lery, hut our informant says he overheard a messenger from the secession camp say that they bad killed only one man, after entering Carthage, and had taken no guns. Jackson announces his intention of fortifying himself at Carthage until Price and Me Col Inch arrive from Arkansas with reinforce ments, when he will act on the offensive and enforce the laws of the State. Major Siegel retreated in the direction of Sarcoxie, where he expected reinforcements. Nothing can be heard from Major Sturgis or Gen. Lyon. Later July 7, 8 o'clock, p. it. A citizen of this place has just arrived, having left Sherman, Jasper county, at daylight this morn ing. He states that aft-r leaving Carthage, Cat. Siegel moved two miles southeast of the town where he encamped for the night. His command is badly cut up His loss is vari ously estimated at from 300 to 1000 and that of the secessionists from 1000 to 2000 killed and wounded. Col. Brown, with 3000 troops from Springfield, is said to have joind Col. Siegel Maj Sturgis is north of the Osage, and Gen. Lyon at last accounts was at Warsaw, on his way South. On Friday, the day of the battle, Ben. Mc- Cutlocb and Gen. Price arrived at Neosho, 20 rtibs south of Carthage, with 10,000 men. A guard of 200 men left there by Siegel, was surrounded and taken prisoners. One report says that all were mu'dered, and another that but a small portion of them were killed. M' Culloch sent forward 2000 men ;o assist Jack son. He expects oOOO additional troops from Arkansas. St. Louis, July 10. The Springfield eor rsspondent of the Democrat, under date of tbe 8 h inst., gays, immediately af er tke arrival, Brig. Gen. Sweeny at Springfield dispatched messengers to Cols. Siegel and Solomon, who were encamped at Neosho, to move their col umns to Cartharg", which was promptly dooe. Last night a messerger arrived from Col. Siegel, stating tba'. Jackson and Generals Price and Riins had united their forces, and were encamped eight miles north of Oartbage. Siegel and Solomon pushed forward rapidly ana aitacKad the rebel rorce early yesterday morning, and continued fighting during the dav. Messengers are constantly bringing infor mation that the rebels are retreating gouth eastwardly between Sarcoxie and Mount Ver non, falling b.ick on Caseyville with tbeir bag gage and plunder, un-'er covst of their cannon, and Seigel attacking their rear. This af'emoon Gen. Sweeny commands in person a flying c-dumn " oving southwardly to Intercept the rebels at Vernon, thus crushing ibem comploUly between our columns. La'ge bodies of mounted men zte contregat itgat West Plain ar!?! Forsyth, with the in tention of joining Jackson's force, but Sweeney snt a detachment cf 200 mounted men through Douglas county to prevent their union and drive back Gn. McBrlde'g command. A company of home guard arrived last 1 Igbt, bringing Col. Coffee, late member of the legislature, aa a prisoner. Later advices sav a rert reached Spring field Sunday morning of an engagement be tween uliO federalists, under Col. Wolf, and 1500 rebels. Wolf occupied a prairie when the battle began, but the rebels retreating to the woods he followed, and in skirmishing lost 30 m-n killed and wounded, he himself being among the killed. The loss of the rebels was considerable but not definitely ascertained. A messenger was then dispatched to Springfield for reinforce ments, and the whole force pushed forward. Gen. Lvo.i was at Leesville, Cloud county, .in Sunday Morning. Maj. Sturgis was st Clinton, Henry county, on the same day. They expected to form a junction about ten miles south of Clinton on Sunday night. Federal Troops at Neosho and Uran. )r Ren. Kalnca olng- lo Attack Them. An express arriveil here list evening from Gen. Ptc-ce, dated Camp Walker, July 1st, which stat's that the federal troops are at Ne nsho and Granbv, snd that Gen. Raines, with 4000 Missourians, well armed, were expecteJ to ?ttack them tbat night. Troops are "going constantly to the State line. FIGHT AT PIN KVILLE. Henry Minehart arrived here at noon, di rect from Fayetteville, with dispatches from Camp Wallc'er, of Monday evening. There was a hard fight between the federal forces and tbe Mis30t:riana under Gen. Raines, at Pineville, near the Kansas line, and fifteen miles from Camp Walker. It is said that six companies of Arkansas troops were in the en gagement. The express says he thinks Hie Missourians got tbe worst of the battle. He says there is 12 or 15,000 federal troops in that region. He also says Gen. Lyon and Capt. Price ?re on their way to Arkansas, through KaDas, with 5 or 6000 men. aiming for this post. Fort Smith Herald, July 3. Worth Thinking About. Wheat is sell ing af $1 per bushel, corn at 30c. Butter is worth in our town 10c. per ponn.t, wool at a nominal price, and without demand. These prices will be considered low ho n.tr farmers. Mot of them have been enabled, by their wealth, to hold over the larce stocks of last year, in tbe hope of better prices. The wives snd daughters of our country fanners, very naturally, are indignant at the miserably remunerative prices offered for tbeir pains-taking products those products that produce the comforts, the luxuries, the refine, inents of agricultural life. Do their masculine protectors tell them ihe reason for this great change ? If tot, we will. A change has come over cur country, almost without observation, that bas stopped the channels of trade, destroyed the business cf the States, and threatens our very liberties. Tbe fabric of your toil were consumed at the Soutb. Your butter, by every southern coaster, found market in tvrry city, and almost on every plai ation. These 'markets are blockaded, aa is also the great distributing one, New York. The steamers that were daily loaded with the material of your weal h are now converted into transport ships to convey your brothers to fight with tbeir own blood, and wi h a peo ple with whom they have no quarrel. Ithaca (N. F.) Democrat Retosted Engagement at Ship Islahd. The rumor wag exb nsive last evening, that during yesterday forenoon tbe Lincoln gun boats approached anl opened lire tipn the southern troops lately landed on Ship Island, and that onr men fired back, ami that the gun boats withdrew, and that nobody was hurt. It wag reported that this news was received at military headquarters here; bu as none of our numerous friends at Mississippi City and other places In sibt of Ship Island tele graphed us anything about It, we give our statement as a town rumor and nothing more. New Orleans Crescent, lOfA. LATEST FKOTI Et BOPF. We copy the following from the New York Daily News' Psris letter of June 8.h : This government will, upon good and suf ficient security, now offered, it is positively said, by th-e Southern commissioners, let the Confederate States have no less than $100 -f00,000. Certain Immunities of trade, cer tain advantages on the Gulf of Mexico, cer tain co-operation in Mexico itself and at the Is'hmns of Panama, will secure this, and Spain, which is growing strong in the sun shine of Imperial favor and advice, will not only abstain from objection, but will, to all In tents and purposes, aid this movement. Ttir report of great discoveries of the pre cious metals in at least three of the Soutbern States, on the Atlantic seaboard, is confirmed. Specimens are on exhibition in the private offices of two or tttree noted bankers here, snd the enterprise wbicb northern men might have displayed in working the new California will probably fall now, in a large measure, to French engineers find capitalists. Statements backed by sampleg and documentary proof, have i-ren made to the emperor concerning the vast supplies of iron, lead, copper, coal and ship-buildirg timber the South has at com mand with some ready cash capital to aid her. I find tha' among thase wbo saiLd for New Orleans some time ago, were a lanre number of he old African Zouaves of ttie French ser vice, snd officers, who go to organize battal ions on tbat and the Turco ar.d Chasseur d'Afrique principle. So you mav have a chance of eeing a little of the African and Crimean style of fighting the same which made an impressiyo at Magenta and Solferino. A legitimate suecessor of M Poltevin has gone to Mobile wi h a series of big and little war balloons, araorg tbem two of those which were use! with such valuable results for reconnoitering purposes, by Napoleon in northern Italy. He proposes', if tb South can accede to his terms, to make Fort Pickens untenable in for'y-eight hours, ami. by the aid of a country.na -, who In 1859 degired to cxprrim'nt at Cherbourg, in the waer. to capture or destroy any blockading fleet f within tbe radius o' five miles. These parties I took with them also a new kind of steam ' wagon for eeassjMSj roads and prtable rafts j for crossing rivers snd inlets. Thus you sre likely to find the modern improvements intrc- I dr.ced, on an extensive scale, in the hrrrible j episodes of yoir civil war. A t'PU r Tt KStTS. R. G.
