PROCLAMATION BY THE PRESIDENT
fiy the President of the United Stales of America.
A PROCLAMATION.
It has pleased Almighty God to hearken to
the supplications and prayers of an alilicted
people, and to vouchsafe to the army and navy
of the Vnited States victories on land and
on the sea so signal and so effective as to fur
nish reasonable grounds lor augmented confi
dence that the Union of these States will be
maintain* d, their Constitution preserved, and
their peace and prosperity permanently re
stored. lint these victories have been accord
ed net without sacrifices of life, limb, health,
and liberty, ircurrcd by brave, loyal, and pa
triotic citizens. Domestic affliction in every
part of the country follows in the train of
theee feariul bereavements. It is mete and
rijsbt to recognize and corfess the presence of
fce Almigb'y Father and the power of His
hand equally in these triumphs and in these
sorrows.
Now, therefore, be i! known, that I do set
apart Thursday, the sixth day of August next,
10 be observed as a day for National Thanks
giving, Praise and Prayer, and I invite the
people of the United States to assemble on that
occasion in their customary places of worship,
and in the forms approved by their own con
sciences, render the homage due to the Divine
Majesty for the wonderful things He has done
in the Nation's behalf, and invoke the influence
cf Ills Holy Spirit to subdue the anger which
has produced and so long sustained a needless
and cruel rebellion, to change the hearts of the
insurgents, to guide the counsels of the Gov
ernment with wisdom adequate to so great a
national emergency, and to visit with tender
care and consolation throughout the length and
breadth of our land all those who, through the
vicissitudes of marches, voyages, battles, and
sieges, have been brought to suffer in mind,
body, or estate, and finally to lead the whole
nation, through the paths of repentance and
submission to the Divine will, back to the per
le.t enjoyment of Union and fraternal peace.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set
my hand and caused the seal of the United
States to be affixed.
Done at the city of Washington, this'fif
teenth day of July, ia the year of
our Lord one thousand eight hundred
[L. 8.] and sixty-three, and of the independ
ence of the United States of America
the eighty-eighth.

ARRIVAL OF PRIZE GOODS AND PRISONERS,
Yesterday the tug Leslie came up, bring
ing up Acting Ensign of the steamer Western
World, with two prisoners and a lot of prize
goods. The Western World, Acting Master S
B. Gregory, on May 5th, took lrom the heuse of '
J. Dixon, Uueen's creek, Piankatank river, a
lot of tobacco. Dixon is said to be a noted
blockade runner. May 2-'}d.?The good* in the
ttore of W. Pressin, on Cheeseman's creek,
Pecos in riverj were seized, together with 972
currency. Pressin, who is said to be a dis- ;
charged soldier and a noted blockade runner, .
was taken and carried beyond onr lines. May i
?A lot of goods which had just been landed
near the store of Robert Simmons, Cabb's creek
Piankatank river, were seized, together with a
man named Ward, who has since been ex
changed. May 27th.?In Stoke's creek, Milford
Haven, two prisoners, Lnther J. Handy, clerk
ot the Confederate Commissary Department)
and Evert C. Evertson, who says he is from ,
California, were captured crossing from the i
Eastern Shore to Virginia, having with tliem i
three trunks, bonnets, ic., and glTJ in Coufed- j
erate notes, ?191 in specie, and a sight draft on
Baltimore for ?500.
The goods were placed in custody of the
prize commissioners, and the prisoners taken
o the Provost Marshal 6 yesterday morning. j
TIIE REBEL GENERAL KEMPER.
From Capt. Davis, of the 1 '1st Pennsylvania
volunteers, who arrived in this city yesterday
from Gettysburg, we learn that it is not true,
as reported, that the rebel Gen. Kemper was
killed at the battle of Gettysburg. He is now
lying at Brean's Mill, three miles from Gettys
burg, having been shot through the breast, the
ball lodging in his back. He was in command
cf a portion of the force comprising the forlorn
hope of the rebels, and was wounded in the
la.->t desperate charge made by the latter to re
trieve their lost ground.
When Gen. K. fell, his staff supposed him to
have been wounded beyond recovery, and in
order to save themselves from capture left him
on the field, expecting he would d>e in a few
moments. He was, however, found by our
men in time to have his wounds attended to,
and is now in a lair way of recovery. Both
Union and rebel papers have reported him
killed, and the letter do not jet know to the
contrary. Gen. Kemper is a Virginian.
Col. Patton, of the 7th Virginia (rebel) in
fantry, and a State Senator elect to the rebel
Virginia Legislature, was also left upon the
field as dead; but he, too, is in a Federal hos
pital, aud with a prospect of recovery.
A COMMISSIONER.
Mr. Wemyss Jobsoo, of London, has arrived
in this city, for the purpose oi proposing an
adjustment ot the difllculties between the North
and the South. He has had an interview
with some of the governmental authorities,
but we believe found them not disposed to
??adjust" with the rebels on any terms short
of the old ones of uncouditional submission on
their part, and an agreement hereafter to keep
step to the music of the Union. As Mr. Jobson j
professes to be acting in behalf of the European i
Republicans, it might be well for him to con- j
ler with Mr. Moncure Conway, wlio has gone I
to Europe on a similar mission in >>ehalt ot
the American Abolitionists, and the two might ;
associate themselves with Mr. W. Cornell
Jewett, of Colorado Territory, General Pacifi- j
cator, and the trio may perhapsbe able to cook
up bomething worthy the attention of the j
world in the rdjustment line.

General-in-Chief, U. S. A., Washington, D. C.
?Nir ? I have the honor to report that at live
o'clock on the morning of the 10th inst., I made
an attack upon the enemy's fortified position
1 on the south end of Morris Island, and after
I an engagement of 3X hoars, captured all his
i strongholds upon that part of the Island, and
pushed forward my infantry to within 600
yards of Fort Wagner.
We now hold all the Island except about 1
mile on the north end which includes Fort
Wagner and a battery on Cwmming's Point
mounting at the present time 11 or 15 heavy
guns in the aggregate.
The assaulting column was gallantly led by
Brig. Gen. Strong. It landed in small boats
i under cover of my batteries on Folly Island
! and four monitors led by Rear Admiral Dahl
I greii, which entered ihe main channel abreast
) of Morris Island, soon after our batteries
j opened. The monitors continued their fire
' during the day mostly on Fort Wagner.
On the morning of the 11th instant, at day
: dreak, an effort was made to carry Fort Wag
ner by assault. The parapet was gained, but
the supports recoiled under the lire to which i
they were exposed, and could not be got up.
Our loss in both actions will not vary much
irom 150 in killed, wounded, and prisoners.
We have taken 11 pieces of heavy ordnance
and a large quantity of camp equipage.
The enemy's loss in killed, wounded and
mining will not fall short of 200.

feeling at two or three places to-day, bnt the
presence of the returned militia seems to have
extinguished the hopes of the plundering
thieves.

of the police this morning, and is now in clo-<e
confinement. By profession he is a lawyer. It
is reported that he has lately been occupied as

The Republican, thk Chronicle and the
Public Schools.?Tio belated Republican,
which never discovered that the school exam-^
inations were in progress until they were halt
through, and then only through eleemosynary
aid, picked up a detached report of here and
there a school, not having the enterprise in any
case to send a reporter, charges upon the Star
that it is ahead of time in publishing the
awards ot premiums on the same afternoon
they are announced at the Smithsonian
We have to inform tbo Republican that the
Star has always thus published them, and it
our neignbor would devote one half the atten
tion and space to the schools and to school
affairs that the Star has uniformly done, its
suddenly professed interest in such matters
would not put it in so ridiculous an attitude.
The Chronicle also, which has shown its zeal
in behalf of the public schools to the exteutof
copying verbatim, typographical errors and all,
the Star's reports of the examinations, takes
elaborate pains at a large outlay of words to
correct the Star in the statement that the Rev.
Dr. Gray offered prayer at the Smithsonian
yesterday. He did not pray, and the Rev.
Dr. Morsell did, the Chronicle says. Is it pos
sible!
Communication Opened.?This morning the
repairs on the line of the Washington Branch
Railroad were completed, and the train leaving
Baltimore at 8 o'clock this morning arrived
here about noon, bringing the mails and thn
Northern papers. Yesterday the mails and
much of the baggage of the passengers were
transferred at Lanrel by way of the turnpike
bridge, but the trains each way this morning
carried off the large amount of baggage and
express freight which had accumulated at this
point. Another train leaves this afternoon,
but after to-day the old schedule of six trains
each way per day will go into operation. The
president and the various officers and em
ployees of the company, as well as Col. McCal
lum. of the military roads, deserve much credit
for their promptness and energy in having the
necessary repairs made at once.
A Riot.?About noon te-day a fight occur
red near the corner of Indiana a venue and Firs t
street, between two soldiers, in which one or
two pistol skots were fired, bnt fortunately
without effect. The pistols were then used
over each other's heads, and one of them was
badly cut about the face; the other also being
badly used. The reports of the pistols im
mediately brought together about thirty sol
diers, friends of the combatants, who joined in
the fight, and a number of citizens who where
near by also "went in." For a short time
things looked squally, and it was feared that
something serious would happen, but a guard
of the 14th N. H. were promptly on the spot,
and arrested three of the principals,(who were
taken to the Central Guard-house,) and dis
persed the others.
A Good Haul.?Yesterday about 7 o'clock
p. m., as officer Clineof the First Precinct was
going the round of his beat, east of the Ana
coBtia, he noticed three men in q. stage coach
approaching this city. Suspecting that they
were not right, he followed them. The guards
at the bridge allowed them to pass, but Cline
was not satisfied, and pushed on after them
and arrested them. He took them to the Pro
vost Marshal, where they gave their names as
H. Hamberger, Moses Mann and Wm. Lutz
bocker, all Germans, and claim to be mer
chants. Upon search IMG,000 in Confederate
money was found upon them. They are sup
posed to have been engaged in trading with
Richmond, and were returning from a trip.
Capt. Todd sent them to the Old Capitol.
