We wih we hid beUir news than we have
to-day from ur army movements in Virgin
ia. Thit the capital is thought to be seri
ously in dan;r, or at teas: that our genera's
think they can defend it from the furtifica-
t'Mcs near it, better than in the field twenty
or thirty miles f, is quite evident. A day
or two most bring eerious chan-es there, one
way or the other.
TIIE DRATT DEFERRED IN VT
We see by order from the Adj. General
OGce, published in our peper of to day, that
the Governor has deferred the day of draft to
fill up the Vermont quota of nine month's
militia, to the tenth inst. No order of the
Secretary of War is referred to, as a reason
for it, but the only reason given is that it
will pratify ibe people of this State that is
some of them, we suppose to have the quota
filled up entirely by volunteers, and it is
hoped that that will be done, if a week more
time is piven. We are very eorry to see this
order. Surely if there couli be a time when
needless delays in sjpj.lying trjors for the
Betvice of the Government would bo excus
able, the present is not one And this is
done to speak plainly for u mere whim,
that it will sound better to hare Vermont
furnish her quota complete by volunteers,
than to have it finished up by a drtit. IIow
much more to the credit of the State it would
have been to have it said that VERMONT
neither toot nor asked for an extra hour, to
bring forward very man that w&s required
of her. And how wholesome that ioHuence
would be lor the future and how injurious
the inflaeDC-3 of the present action ! Every
djye delay brings additional expenses, and
every delay lurnishe excuse for further tardi
ness and re newed delay. Neither money
nor credit is saved by this action ; but both
are lost, and the seeds of mischief are sown for
TIIE MOVE I EXT IN ROSTOX AND
The news of thegmt battles near Wash
in:; ton last week, and of the sub quent want
of a:d fur the woutdid sol liers of the nation
produced aa unpural eJed movement in Bos
ton and vicinity. From the account in the
Bjston Journal we gather the fallowing :
On Sunday morning, notices were publish
ed in nearly every rulpit within ten miles of
Boston, of the need for prompt contribution
for the relief of the coffering. To a great
extent, the rltgim b aerpiues in the churches
were suspended alter a brief exercise, atd the
people betjok themselves t- the atLerirj,
prepirAtioj ami despatching of articles
understood to be wanted.
At least fifteen hundred women, frcm all
purl of the city, aweraWed at thelrtinuat
V tuple aud derated tiur services tbruughout
th day to tearing, etitcung and winding
bandages, scraping lint and assorting and
prcpario the ariuui t nicies contributed,
which, a- boon as ready, wrro taken into the
corridors and paclrd. The btret in front
was literally blocked up with fieople and
wagons, ucloadmg and loading cases, bale
and boxes, white the enclure was covered
eeveral feet oeep with the wrappers of pack
agts handed in by individuals.
At each end of the crclosjre subscription
fa per b were opened for money to defray the
expenses of trans j-trtnt.on and the purchase
of such needed s .pplies as were not sent in,
and during the day the committee received
To the wine store of Messrs. T. W. Rob
inson k Co., Lindall street, all the cod tribe -t.ons
of whiskey, brandy, wines and jellies,
first received at the Temple, were sent to be
properly packed. A large force, including
the proprietors and several of the wealthier
wine merchants in the city, was engaged in
packing jugs, demijohns, bottles and jars of
qui nee preserves, raspberry jam, currant jelly
and such niceties.
The contributions of all kinds received at
the Temple amountei to 10S7 caees.boxea and
bales. Of thh number several wagon load
were cent direct to the railroad, and 917
packaged weighing 94,782 pounds, pissed
through the office of Adam's express.
At other places in the vicinity, Cb el seas
Charleetown, Roxbury. Cambridge, Water
town and other towns, a like patriotic and
benevolent Wv-rlc went on.
Xo one undertakes as yet to estimate the
number of killed and wounded in the terri
ble battles of last week, but long lists of the
officers who are amonr the number are al
ready published in tbe N. Y. papers, and we
must be prepare! for details of terrible
loss, when the accounts come in. Tbe N.
T. Ttmes gives tbo names of three Brigadier
Generals, Gen. Hatch, Gen. Coulter and
General Buford, of Illinois, as among tbe
killed. In the Hera'd's list. Gen. Hatch is
reported wounded. Gens. Schecck, Daryee,
and Tower, are also reported wounded. We
see the names of six Colonels ot Ohio, In

IMPORTANT HABEAS CORrUS
Impending Confict br tier en tU Judiciary end
the War Department.
The case of the three persons recently ar
rested tn Jericho, in this county, charged
with disbytl practices, is acquiring consider
able importance. The parties were placed
in the county jail in this place, and have re
mained there to this date. Last week a writ
of habeas corpus was issued by JudgoSraalley
in behalf of Mr. Ansan Field, cno of tho
three parties, which was returnable on the
23th nit.; but the case was laid over to Mon
day, to await the presence of tho TJ. S.
Marshal. In the meantime the Marsh hi,
having reported tho facts U Washington, ic
ceived the following despatch ;
WASnuGTOX, Aug. 30lh, 16C2.
7 ( C. P. ZfcWici-.

The Marshal accordingly appeared before
Judge Stnalley Monday forenoon, without ihe
prisoner, and by his counrel, Hun. Levi
Underwood, who bad been called in, to the
absence of the District attorney, made return
that he l ad made the arrest under the
following older of the Secretarv of War :

and that the prisoner w?s detained under a
late order of the secretary of War, turx?nd
ing tbe writ of habeas orpus in snch cases,
and a!sj in con sequence of gpechl orders
tj the same elect.
Mr. Unxkrwjod aid that as there tad pro
bably no desire to fere.! an issue between the
War Department and tha Judiciary, it
might be well to suspend the cssi until the
ficts were laid hel'rc tht; proper authnritie!
ai Wavhington. ILn. G. F. Edmunds and
W. G. Shaw, E-q., coucsel fur prisoner, did
not absent to this propoal, but claimed that
the return was insufficient and the refusal
to produce Mr. Field a contempt of
Court. Tho Judge thereupon decided, in
substance, that whether the President has
tbe right to suspend the writ of habeas cor
pus without appealing to Congress is a ques
tion. In bis (the Judge's) opinion, the
President has that pjwer, in cases of impor
tant military exigency. Judge Taney's opin
ion to the contrary, notwithstanding; but
be that as it may, that the Secretary of War
and his subordinates have no power to sus
pend the writ; that the return of the mir
shal is not a compliance with the writ, and
that unless within four hours the prisoner be
produced in compliance with the order of
court, he should issue a further crder re
quiring the U. S. Marshal and Sheriff Flan
agan ti show cautsc at the next term of the
Circuit Court, on the 3d of October next,
why an attachment should not issue against
them for contempt of Cjurt.
The Marshal will, we understand, in obe
dience to his orders from Washington, de
cline to produce the prisoner.
On this case, we make but a brief
remark or two. It does not strike us that
the distinction taken by the judge on the
authority to suspend the writ of habeas cor
pus will stand. He concedes that the Presi
dent, in a great exigency like the proent
can suspend the operation of that writ, but
says the Secretary ol War can not do it
But every one knows that tbe Secretary of
War is but a direct cflicialof the President
and that an order from the Secretary of War
derives its authority from a direct or atsum
ed order of the President, just as an Adju
tant's order is assumed to be an order of In?
superior efficcr. It U certain that all the
cases of arrest ard summary confinement by
orders of the Secretary of State or Secretarv
of ar, since the rebellion btcaine fljgraut.
have been considered by the public, as done
by the authority of the President.
We are all jealous of tho liberty of the
satject, and rightly so ; nevertheless in such
a Ftate of affiirs as now f revails in the na
tion, we have to submit to inconveniences
in seme cases, no doubt, to severe hardships:
which in time of rcaco would be intolerable.
Quiet as we Beem to be, here, th nation as
a whole, aud crmont -6 a part of the na
tion, id in a state of WAR terrible and dan
gerous war war aimed Ij those who began
it right at the njticn.il life. We are in a
struggle for existence. The robber has
'ruken into our duoicd. All ordinarr di
cusMon: about right of rs.6!?nn and pl&ih
ot abattment are out of Uce. Nothing is
t'Uiner thm that the avil arm, in regard w
whitt must i djne to aive tho nation from
tbe atgA&sin's clutch, has not the Etrtngth of
a frtraw. The man u ill bo dead and cold be
fore help can come from that source. The
military arm is our only hope, and harsh as
its treatment is, it is better to put up with
it than to embarrass its action. Tbe uni
versal cry has been for more prompt and en
ergetic astion to suppress the rebellion tu
put a strong hand on traitors and the abet
tors of treason every where. In this case we
think it to be regretted that the judge had
not been willing to at least suspend all de
cision on the case till farther communication
could be bad with the authorities at Wash
ington. We have no reason to suppose that
any ill intention on the part of tho Govern
ment lies at the bottom of the arrests, or
that any injustice will be done to the psrties
