OF HABEAS By the President of Hie United States A Proclamation. Whereas, The Constitution of the United States has ordained that the privi lege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of re bellion or invasion the publio safety may require it ; and whereas a rebellion was existing on the 3d day of March, 1863, which rebellion is still existing; and whereas by a statuto which was approved on that day, it was enacted by the Senate and House or .Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled, that during the present insurrection the President of the United States, whenever in his judg ment the publio safety may require it, is authorised to suspend the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus in any State through out the United States, or any part thereof, and whereas, in the judgment of the Presi dent, the public safety does require that the privilege of tbo said writ shall now be sus pended throughout the United States, in cases whereby the authority of the Presi dent of the United States, military, naval and civil officers of the United States, or any of them, hold persons under their com mand, or in their custody, either as prison ers of war, spies, or aiders or abettors of the enemy, or officers, soldiers, or seamen, enrolled, drafted, mustered or enlisted in, or belonging to, the land or naval forces of the United States, or deserters therefrom, yif otherwise amonable to military law or to tbo rules and regulations prescribed for the military or naval service by tbo authority of the President of the United States ; or for resisting a draft, or for any other of fense against the military or naval service. Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, do hereby proolaim and make known to all whom it may concern, that the privilege of the wnt Our country is at war involved in a bloody, desperate, desolating struggle for her very existence. Her immediate foes are from her own household. They as sailed her without provocation and without warning ; they captured (through the trai torous connivance of its leaders) ber prin cipal army, with all its arms and munitions, before she suspected the near approach of hostilities. They robbed her of fortresses, armories, arsenals, mints, custom-houses, sub-treajsuries, post-offices, &c., by collusion with their confederates who had charge of them severally, and finally bombarded into surrender a fortress bnwely held by a loyal commander. That done, they rushed upon her capital, threatening to possess it within a month. They treacherously attacked and slaughtered her Militia hurrying to its de fence, and then burnt the railroad bridges and severed the telegraph wires of a loyal State in order to isolate the capital and compel its surrender to their arms, whereby the President, Cabinet, the entire personelle of the Administration, and large supplies of ordnance, arms, and munitions, would have fallen into their hands. Never before was a Goicrnmectof eighty years standing suddenly assailed by so gigantic and so foul a. rebellion. That rebellion had just one impulse, one bond of cohesion Devotion to Human Slavery. It did not desire Disunion parte it desired only that Slavery should be still further diffused, still more impregnably fortified, still more indefinitely perpetuated. This end, and this only, reconciled the slaveholders and their white parasites to tne destruction of American Liberty and iiauouauiy. xneir iove 01 country was overborne and stifled by their absorbing love of Slavery. That Rebellion, after two years of varied bnt generally prosperous fortune, has en countered the chill blasts of Adversity. Since the first of July last, its has received several staggering blows, and now trembles on the brink of ruin. Its armies, badly aeteated, have lost confidence in their lead ers and their cause. They no longer fight with alacrity and sanguine hope. They are despondent, mutinous, and tired of the strife. They desert by thousands, and are recalled to their standards but in part and with difficulty by dint of great severities. In every quarter, the hour of collapse and prostration is at hand. In this juncture, Matthew F. Maury, "a conspicuous mgrate and traitor, addresses the European public in a letter designed to prove the Confederacy invincible ! while a considerable number of British merchants, clergymen, etc., memorialize their nation in favor of the recognition of that Confed eracy as an independent Power ! With the results of Gettysburg. Helena, Vicksburg, and Port Hudson, the retreat of the armies of Lee, Bragg, Johnson, and Price, in immediate contemplation, they vain mate and coafidant of those whose aid he thus rejoices in. II. But let ns follow bim as he proceeds to glance at " the riots in New York, the conduct of the Pennsylvanians during Lee's invasion of their State, the organised resist ance to the war ia Iowa," etc, and thus dilates: " New York is threatening armed resist ance to the Federal Government. New York is becoming the champion of States' Rights in the North and to that extent it taking Southern ground. Mr. Lincoln has not only judged it expedient to unmusxle the press in New York, and deemed it prudent to give vent to free speech there, but he is evidently afraid to enforce the conscription is the Empire State.' The Conscription Act itself, moreover, seems to be so aoortive throughout Yankee-land 1 generally, that he cannot now muster forces enough to follow np bis July successes, etc, etc of haoeas corpus is suspended throughout I inveigh against " the frightful and the United States int he several cases be- I slaughter of myriads of human beings in haltlpu irhnJJn ivtrJpfitinJI fore mentioned, and that this suspension will continue throughout the duration of the said rebellion, or until this proclama tion shall, by a subsequent one, to be issued by the President of the United States, be modified and revoked ; and I do hereby re-1 quire all magistrates, attorneys, and other civil officers within the United States, and all officers and others in the military and naval service of the United States, to take distinct notice of this suspension and give it fall effect, and all citizens of the United States to conduct and govern themselves accordingly and in conformity with the Constitution of the United States and the laws of Congress in such cases made and provided. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed, this the 15th day of September, in the year of oar Lord, 1863, and of the Independence of the United States of America the 88th. ABRAHAM LINCOLN. By the President. Wm. H. Seward, Sec'y of State. , A Nice Point in Law. The bark Hebron, which had on board some 8000 barrels of petroleum oil for the European market, has been , libeled for damage done to oyster beds in New Bedford harbor. The immense weight of the cargo crushed the lower tier of barrels in the hold, and the oil was pumped out into the harbor, which destroyed several beds of oysters, valued at ome $7000. This suit will involve 6omc j very nice legal questions. The oil can be seen on the surface of the water in the har bor in all directions. The editor of the Saratoga Repub lican tells the following at his own expense: " Yesterday, wishing like others to evince our patriotism, we informed the six com positors in our office that if they would en list we would pay them balf , wages while they were gone to the war. They replied, ' that is more than we ever had before ;' and the whole crowd have enlisted ! 'That's what's the matter !' " lew "Here, you little rascal, walk up tere and give an account of yourself where have you been ?" " After the girls, father." " Did you ever know me to de so when I was a boj 1" " No,. sir, "but mother did." - ..'". battles tcholly indecisive They magisterially pronounce Disunion an accomplished result, decide that our struggle must inevitably be futile, and appeal to "the vouched for fact that every man and tcoman of the South will die rather than submit to Lincoln's domination Who is the voucher of this most amasing uiaicment, woicn Missouri, neuiucxy, Ten nessee, Louisiana, North Carolina, so em phatically refute ? Who tells Europe that heroic, martyred, at last liberated East Ten nessee unanimously prefers death to the Union ? Who but C. L. Vallandigham, ow Dem ocratic candidate for Governor of Ohio? He has proclaimed it in a public election eering address ; has any oae else ? Lieut. Maury writes to The Timet (Lon don) that the prospects of the Rebellion " were never brighter." This on the 17th of August I And here are his reasons: 1. " There are divisions in the camp of the enemy, dissensions among the people of the North. There it' already a Peace Party there. All the embarrassments vnth which that party can surround Mr. -Lincoln, and all the difficulties that it can throw -tn the way of the War party of the Narth, operate directly as so much aid and comfort of the South." The people of the North are urged to sustain the Democratic party as the onlr hope of re-union. Thousands of votes were last fall obtained for Seymour and Parker by these and kindred .appeals. Seymour solemnly protested that he would never consent to disunion, let bis election was immediately hailed by Lord Lyons, in his dispatch from this city to Earl Russell, as a proof that the North was ready to give up the struggle and consent to disunion. Ev ery Democratic triumph in the loyal States has thus been interpreted by the Jtebels and by their sympathisers in Europe. Ev ery one of them has been joyously bsiled by all our country's enemies as another sail in the coffin of the Union. Lieut Maury gieeta the Copperheads as a ' peace party, in his sense of neace: emit over "the embarrassments with which that party can surronnd Mr Lincoln"; and claims all their "peace" machinations as "so mmek aid and, comfort to the South" that is, the Rebeb. Is he deceived? He certainly ought not tote, for he was long the ihU- Here the demonstrations of Seymour and his "friends" against the Draft are all scored up as so much Confederate capital. The battles in July went against the rebels so much Maury is obliged to confess ; but then see what Seymour & Co. " to that extent taking Southern ground" 7 have done for treason under the banner of States' Rights! They have stopped the Conscription; and so Meade, Buruside, Rosecrans, Grant, Banks, and Gilmore are at the end of their chains ! Thev cannot follow up their July successes for want of the re-mforcements for which Seymour or Co., by taking " to that extent, Southern ground," have deprived them. III. But the ex-Lieut, has a still further and more decisive off-set to the National victories in July. Hear him ! " Vallandigham waits and watches over the border, pledged if elided Governor qf the Mate of Ohio -to array it againit Lincoln and the War j and to go for Peace. What the result of the election there will be, I cannot tell ; but the canvass is going on, and we know that opposition to Lincoln and his War party is growing more and more popular every dav, and throughout the whole North." That Vallandigham is for "Peace" of the lveuei stripe is not questionable ; but where is his "pledge" to "array" Ohio, should he be chosen her Governor, " against Lincoln and the War ?" This is a grave allegation. Mr. V., as Governor of Ohio, would have no constitutional or rightful power to "array" his State against the National authority. His duties lie in quite another ueid bis ua tn binds bim to sustain the Federal Government in the dicbarge of its legitimate duties, not to resist it and aid those intent 00 its overthrow. Vallandig ham is lately returned from Dixie let the people whose suffrages he seeks know what pledges he has made to the deadly foes of the .Republic ere their suffrages shall have been irrevocably cast ! There is much more in Lieut Maury's letter of like tenor with the above extracts, but enough. I only seek to make plain the tact tne rto-Blavery Democracy of the North are habitually counted on as allies and fellow-workers by the Rebels of the South. These even offset their own unde niable defeats by Democratic triumphs achieved or hoped for. and ballanee the surrender of Vicksburg and the defeat of hee'B invasion by the demonstrations of Seymour and the more decided treason con fidently expected from Vallandigham. And thus the spirits of the Rebels are upheld, and the sorely shaken confidence of their European backers animated. Young Men of this great Repablio ! these intrigues and conspmngs against the unity, the vitality of your country, are destined to snooted er (as I fervently trust) to fail; and in either case the brand which History must afix to their authors and promoters will far axeeed that of Cam in its broad and ineffaceable ignomy. Be sure that no part of it attaches to you, so that your ohildren'e children may proudly exult that, in the hour of her supreme agony aad oeriL you were emphatically loyal and devoted to the Union of your fathers and the inalien able Rights of Man ! CLASSIFICAXIOJr OF KISSES. An ingenious writer, who has bestowed years of intense reflection and active re search upon the subject, has completed the following highly scientific classification : " I have found, he sa) s, that there are only three regular kisses (properly so called), and these may be denominated the kiss negative; the kiss positive: and the kiss superlative. Ibe first, or negative, consists m kissing a lady's band. The second, or positive, consists in kissing ber cheek. And the third, or superlative, con sists in kissing her lips. There are, besides, two auxiliary kisses, viz: The kiss passive, such as is inflicted by old maiden aunts, nurses and grandmothers. And the kiss active in use (principally) on the Gretna ureen road per auamanti enovelli rvosio. The first (the kiss passive) is cenerallv declined by the kissee, whilst the latter (the kiss active) kisser and kissee in number as well as in gender. Independent of the preceediog regular and auxiliary kisses, there are for the convenience of society, a few supernumerary or irregular ones, such as: The incidental, or stage kiss; the petty larceny, or stolen kiss : the mutual, or re ciprocity kiss ; the sly, or ' don't tell' kiss; the cooing, or a la tourlereUe kiss; the honeymoon, or bridal kiss ; the mute, or sighing kiss ; the merry, or laughing-gas kiss; the echo, or percussion kiss; the semi-angry, or pouting kiss; the hysteric, or humbug kiss ; the wheedling, or chtone kiss; and the barley-sugar en papillate; which two kisses are successfully practiced by young-ish wives and old-ith husbands, in order to raise the requisite ('ruination ') supplies. The Istter one, by the way, is very rarefy committed during the season of adolescence or otuliebnety, being tolerated chiefly by young gentlemen in their earliest teensand exceedingly juvenile misses who have not quite " outgrown their bib.'

The city of Moscow, rendered famous by Napoleon's celebrated expedition, was built in the 12th century, and now contains 400.- 000 inhabitants. It is situsted in a green valley, and the bouses are mostly built of wood, with roofs of sheet iron. In the centre of the city stands the walled hill of Kremlin, which is surrounded by a brick wall 50 to 75 feet high, and a mile and a half in circumference. Within these lim its are several public buildings. The dod- uiar opinion mat tne Kremlin is a palace, is erroneous. It is eimnlv. as its name signifies, a walled enclosure, and was built as a defence against demestic insurrection. It could no more be blown up by powder than could a great bill. In the cbuicb wtr.ch stands within, its limits is a bell weighing 140,000 lbs., but this is eclipsed thing you water, and do all year errands. The troubled eyes of the speaker were filled with tears. It was a lad that stood at the outer door, pleading with a kindly looking woman, who still seemed to doubt the reality of hi good intentions. The cottage sat by itself on a bleak moor or what in bcotland would have been called such. The time was near the latter end of September, and the fierce wind rattled the boughs of the two only naked trees near the house, and fled with a shivering sound into the narraw door way, as if seeking for warmth at the blazing fire within. Now and then a snow-flake touched with its soft chill the cheek of the listener, or whitened tne angry redness of the poor boy's benumbed bands. The woman was evidently loth to grant the boy's request, and the peculiar look stamped upon his features would have sug gested to any mind an idea of depravity far beyond his years. But her woman a heart could not resist the sorrow in those large, but by no means handsome gray eyes. Gome in, at any rate, till the good man cornea home ; there, sit down by the fire : you look perishing with cold," and she drew a rude chair up t6 the warmett corner, then, suspiciously glancing at the child from the corners of her eyes, she continued setting the table for supper. Presently came the tramp of heavy shoes, the door was swung open with a onick ierk. and the " good man " presented himself weanea witn labor. A look of intelligence passed between his wife and himself; he, too, scanned the boy's face with an expression not evidenc ing satisfaction, but, nevertheless, made him oome to the table, and then enjoyed the zest with which he dispatched his sup per. Day after day passed, and yet the boy begged to be kept "only till to-morrow": so the good people, after due consideration, concluded that as long as he was docile, and worked so heartily, tbey would retain him. One day, in the middle of winter, a ped ler, long accustomed to trade at the cottage, made his appearance, and disposed of his goods readily, as he had been waited for. "You have a boy out there splitting wood, I see," he said, pointing to the yard. I " xes; do you Jtnow him V "I have seen him," replied the pedler, evasively. 14 And where who is he? what is he V " A jail-bird !" and the pedler swung his pack over his shoulder : " that bov. yonng as ne looks, 1 saw in court myself, and not envy.

Aronnd the city stretches a public garden or Boule vard, and outside of this a wall of turf 30 or 40 feet in height.

The domes are pear-shaped, and are surmounted by a spire sad a cross, with the crescent beneath it They are painted sometimes brown, snd often a bright blue color, with lsrge spangles of gold.

The following explanation of the colors and symbolic meaning of the " Stars and Stripes ' was written by a member of the old Continental Congress, to whom, with others, was committed the duty of selecting a flag for the infant confederacy: " The stars of the new flag represent the new constellation of States rising in the West. The idea was taken from the con stellation Lyra, which, in the hand of Orpheus, signifies harmony. The blue in the field was taken from the edges of the Covenanter's banner in Scotland, significant of the league covenant of the United Col onies against oppression, involving the vir tues of vigilance, perseveraaos and justice The stars were in a circle, symolixiag the perpeuuiy o me union, u:o nog, uxe tne circuug serpent 01 toe xtgypuans, snowed, with the sure, the number of the 'United Colonies, and denoted the aubonaation of the States to the Union, as well aa equality among themselves. The whole was the blending of the various flags previous to the Union lag, vis: The red flag of the let and the white of floating batteries. The red rokr, which in the Soman day was the signal of defiance, denotes daring, the blue Sdelity, and the white purity.". JOSH ULLDTOS ZH8U1ES HIS LIFE.

Oh ! there wss something so horrible in the word jail; the poor weman trembled as she laid away her purchases, nor could she be easy till she called the boy in. and assur ed him that she knew that dark part of his history. j Ashamed, distressed, the child hung down his hoad ; bis cheek seemed bursting with bis hot blood ; his lips quivered, and an guish wss painted as vividly upon his fore head as if the words were branded into his flesh. " Well," he muttered, his whole frame relaxing as if a burden of guilt or iov bad suddenly rolled off, " I may as well go to ruin at once there's no use in my trying to do better everybody hates and despises me nobody cares about me. I may as well go to ruin at once." " Tell me," said the woman, who stood off fsr enough for flight, if thst be neces sary, " how came you to go so young to that dreadful place? Where was youi mother? where? " Ob !" exclaimed the boy, with a burst of grief that was terrible to behold, " oh !

It is a vast, though se cluded peninsula, with an area of 100,000 square miles greater than that of Europe west of the Vistula greater, that is, than ibe territories of four of the five Powers, with Germany, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Scandinavia, Poland and Italy added there to. This enormons region, bo far from be in a mere sandy plain, is traversed by high ranges of mountains, filled with broad plateaus, many of them as wide as Europ ean kingdoms, aBd full of magnificient, though dreary and awe-inspiring scenery. The highest Arab tribes and tbo point is too often forgottenare mountaineers; share in the fervid imagination, the brooding and melancholy thought which have in all agea distinguished men bred an the higher re gions of the earth. Even the aridity of the soil of Arabia, though great, is, as a poetical fact, seriously exaggerated, partly because the districts nearest to civilizstion are the worst, partly because travelers se lect the winter for explorations a time when even the fertile plains of upper India looks hideously desolate; but chiefly be cause the European mind has a difficalty in realizing territorial vastness, or compre hending how enormous may be the aggre gate of patches of cultivation spread over a peninsula like Arabia. When some two years ago the Governor of Aden was per mitted to visit Lahej, he, filled like all other Englishmen with the "idea" of Arabia, was startled to find himself, only a few miles from his own crackling cinders, 1 amidst pleasant cornlands and smiling vil lages, in wbioh dwelt a population showing signs of prosperity and content. There are thousands of such spots in Arabia, to which the eternal boundary of tbo desert binds all but the keenest ob'serror. Xa tional Review.

By the Spartan laws, those citizens who remained bachelors after mid dle sge were excluded from all offices, civil snd military. At certain feasts they were exposed to public derision, snd led round the msrket place. Although generally peaking, sge was respected at Sparta, yet this feeling was not manifested to old bachelors. " Why should I make way for you ?" said a Spartaa youth to a grey-headed old bachelor, " who will never have a son to do me tbe same honor when I am old." The Roman law pursued the same policy towards bachelors. They had to pay extra and special taxes, and under Angus tus a law was enacted by which baehelora were made incapable of acquiring legacies aad devices of ical estate by will, except from near relatives. , In caaoa law bacbe lors are enjoined to marry, or to profess chastity in earnest by becoming monks."
