WEDNESDAY, MAT 15, 1861.
x': -f?c are informed that since our article
was written calling attention to the fact
that the companies commanded by Capt’s
Kowbold and Mlhalotzy at Cairo, after De
fying ifeuslerodin. by Capt Pope, had bees,
left out of the regiments in service there—
• Hhey have received ample justice hy being
attached to a regular regiment. This is as
U should be. Doubtless the omission or
neglget was the result
of accident.
® tßoveatent itL-WetjbernVirginia for
Teoiganizmg the Government of that State
—a necessity growing out oi the treason
of the constituted on swim-
T l&ingty. The Convention at Wheeling,
called U> consider the best method of doing
- that ytork, aeems to be largely attended,
and-W-promise beneficent resalts.
Our telegraphic correspondent at Spring
field confirms what we have heard be
fore, that the companies who missed the
-chance *to get into icy of the seventeen
Illinois regiments, hare gone to St, Louis,
and there l&ken service among Captain
Lyon's volunteers. He says that 1,600 have
so enlisted. Let us remember the fact;
and when the Missouri troops do a gallant
tiring, we may be able to el aim for Illinois
A share therein.
In another column wc detail at some
length the condition of affairs at Memphis*
on authority that admits of no dispute.
In the ringing of the hlarm. bell, the per
petual session of the Committee of Safety,
in the usurpation fay that Committee of the
prerogatives of law and justice, in the sum
mary execution of its decrees, and in the
general alarm which prevails, we see the
French revolutionary antetypes—the beat
ing of the generals in the sections—the
triumvirate, Robespierre, Couthon and St.
Just—the trials by Henriot in the Abbaye
—the dt eadful guillotine and the Rdgh of
Terror. Memphis, which was lately a
flourishing and prosperous city, has, in
sixty days, made the progress toward bar-
I? .barista.’winch ongbt to have occupied a
_ century.. Two years of the .rule to which
; she is now subjected wonid reduce her to
the-condition of the first town of the name.
Slavery is enough to bear. Add to it the
curses of causeless r hellion, and the
avenger appears. The occupation of
Jiemphis by an overpowering force of
Government troops would be a mercy to
the madmen by whom it is now abused,
and’a joy the few loyal hearts that are still
aEr© with love of the institutions which
bar fathers founded.
ttifin r.
The issue of those Illinois banks based
on the stocks of seceded States can scarcely
be said to pass at' currency any longer.
Exchange reached the ruinous height
of twenty per cent! and the prospect last
night was, that it-would go still higher to
day, The “ secession n cusrezuy, as it is
called on the streets, Is evidently approach
ing a crisis, and must shortly retire into the
discredited list. It is utterly impossible to
sustain a currency at par, which is secured
by the stocks of seceded States. Missouri
stocks were quoted yesterday in New
York at thirty-fit* cents, Tennessee at forty
fire, Virginia ut forty-three, and so through
the Southern list It is proper to remark,
however, that more of those stocks were
deposited with the Auditor than the bills
issued. The Mtssonris were mostly taken
at something like 73 cents; Virginias and
Tennessees from 75 to 90 cents. Some of
the owners of the “t-tump tali ” banks put
op additional margins after the first fall,
last spring. Therefore the notes of these
* institutions ” are really worth fifteen to
thirty per cent more than the stocks by
which they were secured.
A, meeting was held by a number of
leading merchants, yesterday afternoon,
oh the grave question, What was best to do
with the “secession” currency. Most of
them were the signers of the agreement
withihe banters to receive and pay out
. Illinois bank notes, during the war. They
contended that the bauki rs bad not lived
up ho their side of the understanding in
. goo 4 %tA - t lt w#* alleged that the latter
had “assorted” the currency, retaining
and hoarding all that was secured by
Northern State Stocks, and paying out on
ly that which rested on the bonds of rebel
States. They were charged also with re
fitting to furnish exchange at the rates
promised when the agreement was signed,
exchange having advanced day by day un
to 4t has reached the appalling height of
twenty per cent, a price which was de
structive to all mercantile business.
The conclusion to which the merchants
eamo was, hereafter to receive all curren
cy—on the “short” as well as “long” list—
al juet what it mU bringJf.kexhange with
one per circular was
drawn lip to that cffi&stio be mailed to all
their country Customers, stating that : in
future they will continue to take Illinois
currency as per agreement with the banks.
But they will bill their goods hereafter on
the standard of exchange, and when car*
rency is offered in payment, it will be ta
ken/or what it will bring in exchange, with
one per cent, added.
The immediate effect of this will be to
cause what is called “slump tail,” to pass
for eighty cents on the dollar, or at a dis
count equal to the prevailing rata of ex
change on it. ,-i r,..
We learn that the officers of several
railroads met last night for the purpose of
taking some action in regard to receiving
the depredated currency.
It is hardly just to blame the bankers
for “Baiting” the currency which they re*
, r cdrc, as the merchants and railroad com
panies have been doing the very same
, thing themselves, and selling such as was
secured by Northern, stocks at other
«4nr exchange. Self-interest and a sense of
( jscir-preserration were the motives that
actuated both panics. And it is hardly

A few months since, and the city bfj Mem

, splendid buildings, la high rates of red! t and.
I in every high pressure token of -advancement
j she more nearly realised than any §lty on the
i Lower Mississippi, the vast strides our own
eity has made characteristic of her growth.
That was Memphis under the Government of
the United States—Memphis, loyal .to the old
flag. [.
The change that has eome over that city in
the short period that has intervened since the
opening of the rebellion, has been a < most
marked one. The change has been total] The
present state of affairs there would do credit,
as a supplimentary page of tb follow
the days and thedoings of Danton and Robes
pierre. Austrian terrorism, the . porUsc of
despotism in all Europe, are scarcely parcel
led In the century with the present Reign of
Terror In Memphis.
Sha was, according to the lasi census, a city
of from 23,000 to 24,000. In the circumstances
of her rapid growth, it was naturally the -re
sult that Northern mechanics of all classes
poured in upon her community. : Her manu
factories, her foundries, her printing offices;
were fall of Northern men. Her railroad en
terprises w ere run and operated by Northern
ers, from Superintendents down to growers in
machine shops. Northern clerks were plenty
In the stores. The overwhelming share of
the practical working men in that section
were from the loyal States.
{ Into a community thus constituted the- by

I most striking results. Memphis to-day “out
i Herods Herod,” and surpasses the Golf cities
! in animosity and deadly hatred to ali-lojaity
| to the Government. As a eonsequen.ee, there
has been a wonderful Hegira from her midst.
Every northern bound steamer and car .has
been heavily freighted with sons of theNdrth*
fleeing from tyranny in its worst form. T
It .is estimated that from voun to

brought before them, and after a hasty ee parte
examination, they give a decision from; Which
! there is no appeal. Up to this time their man
date has been, an order to leave the city on the
first train or boat North.' There is reason to
believe that they will soon make It de&th to
be unfavorable to the kingdom of Jeff Davis?
We ere put In possession of a voluminous
Vray of facts, bearing on this point, tfrom
several of our lormer citizens driven ont of
Memphis. They represent the state of feeling
as growing more and mere rabidly hostile
every day. Ail business Is at a stand-still,
other than that which belongs to military out
fit. Only one regiment, from Middle Tennea '
see, has gone to Virginia, and lu this a Mem
phis company found a place. A military H
rendezvous has been established at Randolph,
75 miles north of Memphis, where there are
about 3,000 men well equipped, with a battery
of 33-pounders, sent thither from Charleston. :
The town of Randolph consisted of about 700
people, and many of them have now left for
refuge elsewhere. The blnff is high, and the
battery commands a wide sweep of tß64iver,"
These troops are those gathered to await or
ders frees Montgomery.
At Memphis, volunteering is being pushed
strongly; There are few arms there, however.
The foundries are turning but round Shot and
shell. There Is a display of Secession flags all
ever the eity. It has already been stated in
oar eoliimiis-that the American flag was
burned in Memphis with formal ceremonies.
It will “ rise again” there, amid scenes that
will purge Memphis of rebellion. The citizens'
are fer from being happy in the possession of
their loyalty to the Montgomery Kingdom.
The city is filled with alarms and ezuitementa.
Says one informant, hundreds of women in
Memphis never lay their heads upon their pil
lows at night without dreaming of Inmrree
tiom, - On every public alarm the fire bells are
rung, and this brings the entire population
into the street, A few nights since, a rumor
spread that a large body of troops were com
ing southward from, the Ohio, and a fearful
scene of excitement filled Memphis for hours.
The fire bells rang furiously. The numerous
mounted patrols dsshed to end fro. Women
shrieked. Mothers clasped their children to
their bosoms in frantic agony. All was con
fusion, and its greatest terror lay in the doubt
whether it was an insurrection on Southern
ftoO, or sa hxriuion of Federal troops.
By dint of dragooning and persecution, the
Union man, if such there remain, are silent and
•rushed ont. These people distrust the re
ports from the North. It Is openly urged by
mau sensible on ordinary topics that “ the
Keith has not a single regiment in the field.
but the New Fork 7th, which latter will mot
fight the South” They all rely upon a reaction,
a rising up of the masses at the North to cut
the throats of the ruler*.

WaauiNOTOjf, Friday, May la
Yesterday was one of the most important
days since the commencement of the dam
pawn. Baltimore was telly open to the passage
of Federal troops, end that city was folly re
deemed from the-. Secessionists, who have so :
nearly ruined it. One of the officers informs
me that he never saw such a demonstration ef
joy a* was manifested by the Baltimore people
at the landing of the trbpps from the steamers.
Upwards of ten thousand people assembled
and followed the troops through the streets.
Not a his* or a sound of- disapprobation was
heard during the whole march. The people
seemed to vie with each other In cheering, and
other patriotic demonstration*.
The Stan and Strives were thrown to the
breeze along the route, while the soldiers' re
sponded with hearty cheers to the demonstra
tions. Capt. Sherman’s "batUfy was placed
with three gnus in advance, and three in the
rear, while the infantry marched with doted
ranks, in the centre, and with a file on eich
side of the street, to keep H clear. They car
ried their muskets loaded, with bayonets fixed.
They did not see a accession flag, nor.hear a
word of treason.
As they left the depot, vast crowds lined the
road, and eheered wildly. Bonfires were built
along entire route from Baltimore to
Washington, They were saluted, by Butler’s
command, under CoL Jones of'the Massachu
setts Sixth, at the Relay Spue and at the
Junction. They reached Washington at 3 o'-
clock, and marched immediately to quarters.
They were seven hour* on the road—most of

nothing to eat for thirty-four hour*; All were
in good spirits, and most of them are ready to

The St. Louis Democrat of thcTStii sajs
On Friday night a fatal affray occurred'; at
the Broad Guage saloon between two WcH
known citizens, Dr. Sanderson t and Juqga
Aylett Buckner, under the following circum
stances : Dr. Sanderson and another gentle
man were conversing in the saloon, when
Judge Buckner, who was pasting, and id
dr eased by Mr. Scott, an acquaintance, stepped
in and at once commenced & couveraatipn
wfih Mr. Scott on the universal topic of the
day, when he made a remark which Dr.- San
derson Imagined applied to him. The Doctor
at once assailed Judge Buckner, striking^lra
over the head with a cane, and the latter
clinched Immediately with his assailant, with
out, as be says, knowing who he was.
After a shori straggle and scuffle, the Doc
tor suddenly let go his hold, aci exclaiming
“Tie has stabbed me,” fell. ‘Mr. Baaderson
. was conveyed to his residence, where it was
found that he had received three- stabs, one
penetrating the liver, and two in his stomach.
The Judge at once gave himself up,, ac
knowledging the deed, paying thatit was an

the county jail, to wait the result of Dr. San

most violent manner, denounced the proceed**

condemned m gross end unmeasured terms,

wrath he approached one of the windows near
which were sitting Major Edwards, of the firm

of the oldest, wealthiest, and most respectable

replied to by Mr. Fagan, who is a zdiid manner

ulars, . and sopie account of . the stale .of
feeling' this' morning. On. Thursday,
afternoon it became apparent in the quarters
of our. regiment that .something like “busi
ness” .was In immediate prospect During
the afternoon and htgbt, nn£H a late hour, .the
campahies were assiduously practicing these
manned exercises::which precede the order

exceedingly dark, and the rain fell lu torrents.

to “fail- in,” and the usual preparations for
resisting an attack made. Word, however,
was shortly received that the alarm was oc
caskmad by the accidental discharge of
a' musket in the - hands of a sentinel
on the lower floor. Of course I

fore witnessed. The enthusiasm and impa
tient of delay, waa with difficulty restrained.
Many feared we were hot to be permitted
to participate in the attack; as.our com
pany waa in charge of the building- for
Che day. Soon, however, in our turn the
cartridges were served out to us, and then we
took upbur line of march. I refer you to the
papers for particulars of the capitulation,
afld transfer of arms and stores. The teeling
of quiet; grateful satisfaction manifested In
our portion of the line, which surrounded the
camp £ cannot describe. My own feelings as
ire stood looking across the ravine
which separated us from it, and sung the
“ Star Spangled Banner,” and “My Country
’tig of thee,” were new and overpowering:
Never did I feel inspired by so deep a love
for my flag and my country, or bo devout a
desire that the “God. .of our lathers” would
give ns success. The transfer of prisoners and
property Was made at too great a distance for
ns to be spectators.of it, the camp being in
grove of oak trees. The firing of two vol
leys, after the surrender, not being under
stood by ns, caused extreme .anxiety, and
was explained by various and Contradictory
reports. From the statement of a number of
reliable eye witnesses, J gather that a portion
of the line, after being hooted at, threatened,
and stoned by feexnbb, were fired upon by a
portion of the surrendered force. The fire
killed one 'member of Capt. Cfandowski'e
Company, and brought that officer wounded,
to the ground. He ordered his command to
firfcj fend the melancoly results detailed In this
morning’s papers ensued.

Wabhtnotok, May 14,1861.
The report freely circulated to-day that Fe
deral troops were being: advanced on Har
per’s Ferry from Relay Home and Chambon
burgh,Pa.,was occasioned byadispatch of addi
tional Massachusetts troops for Belay Home. It
is not likely that any such demonstration will
be made without simultaneously breaking the
•line of the rebel forces, from this point, by
throwing the Federal army between Richmond
and Harper’s Ferry. The coarse of the Gov
ernment in Virginia will depend very much on
the action of the Wheeling Convention now
in session. The advanced posts in Maryland
are purposely assigned to the Massachusetts
regiment to make the humiliation of the Se
cessionists greater.

to a question of privilege, said he had been

of Ohio, to present resolutions which he said
he did on his own responsibility, to be refer
