Some of the ov ners and oificers of the St.

a greater or less decree with the transfer of the
steamer to the dlsunlonlsts. and the incidentally
robbery of i >me of our fellow citizens who had
Ireljjtt on board of her.

with which he hns adopted the theory of seces

scoundrellsm, that under ordinary circumstances
would justly subject tboa- indulging it to lasbes

On the whole, the trick of Hollins is on a par
in lack of principle with Van Dorn's In Tent,
and the late procNmat on of Beauregard from
Manaasas, In both of which lying lite poltroon*,
not lighting like aoldiers. was resorted to to win
temporary but evanescent advantages. We re
gard it a* belli" fortunate that the r?t. Nicholas
baa been in any manner tiken out of the trade
between Baltimore and St Mary's county, Md.,
for it la well known that she has been for montha

While uone ar?- more jealous than the Star tor the
