THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1881.
NEVTSENATOR,
Gov t Tates has, : vre are told bj tele
graph* appointed O. H. Browning, Esq.,
of Quincy, to the seat in the U. S. Senate,
made vacant by the death of Jadgs Dong
lap. The appointment is a good one.Mr.
Browning Is a Kentuckian by birth,
publican of conservative antecedents, a
man of unblemished character, and a law
yer of acknowledged ability. On the
Union question and on the War, he is nn
c unpromising and sound.
Despite these admirable qualifications
frr the Senatorial dignity, and our personal
admiration of the gentleman whom thy
adorn, we cannot refrain from saying, that,
in our view, the public interest would
have been better served by tie appoint
ment of some thoroughly reliable mim of
the late Democratic party. We have be
fore set out our reasons for this opinion; and
cvciy day has in our minds added to their
weight and cogency. Bat we have no disp£
Sition, as we have no right, to
Gov. Tates has, no doubt, patriotically
done that which seemed to be the neces
sary thug; and his action will be heartily
accepted, certainly by Republicans, and,
may we not hope, by Democrats also.
BALTIMORE ELECTION.
Apprehensions of a-secesrion outbreak
at Baltimore, daring the excitement of to
day’s election, are conveyed to us by last
night’s dispatches. 'With ten thousand
loyal troops on the outskirts of the city on
one ride, and Fort McHenry commanding
the other side, the probabilities of arowdy
dow seem to be 'greatly diminished. *We
take it that for once the “Killers” and
“ Blood-Tubs ” Trill be awed into a decent
observance of the proprieties, not to say
courtesies, of the occasion. Members of
Congress are to be chosen; and we arc
gratified to hear that that staunch friend
cf the Union, Henry “Winter Davis, will,
in all probability, be elected.
■WISCONSIN CURRENCY,
The Milwaukee papers tvQI hardly say
that anything which has appeared in our
columns has had the effect to so shrivel up
the money market in that city) that “ex
-44 change is become very scarce, and al
“ though the selling rate is nominally 6 per
44 cent, premium, the banks seU only to best
“customers atihatjiguTe? Bo says the Sen
tinel of yesterday. . It adds that “thereis
a greater demand for exchange than bag
44 ever been known before at this period of
44 the year.” Of course there is.
Tho Milwaukee hanks know the value of
Wisconsin currency to a hair’s breadth.
They know how much better it is than
gold or silver. They know that it is six
per cent, better than gold for all transac
tions in the produce market. At any rate
the Sentinel has recently4>ecn tnlHng them
to. Why then, didn’t they sell their New
York exchange freely for this invaluable
currency ? Is it because they have none ?
Why don’t they have it ? It is the busi
ness of banks to have exchange, especially
when they are provided with a currency
which is worth six per cent more than
gold to buy grain and groceries with.
NO NIGHT AT BETHEL*
If some Provost Alarßlial of the
Federal Army, in. and sbpuV 'W’ashington,
were commanded - to seize.and hang up,
after a drum-head trial, the author
or authors of the ‘wilfully false dis
patches like that one, not long since, relat
ing to the affair at SewalTs Point, and that
one, yesterday, settingforth the particulars
of a victory over the rebels at Great Beth
el, the latter of which was .sent all over
the North, and everywhere believed—the
satisfaction of people hereaway would be
complete. It is difficult to account for the
mischievous inclination which could de
liberately invent such a story as that by
■which the North was yesterday agi
tated, and it is hard to believe that the
numerous reporters for the press, in 'Wash
ington, could he deluded by the lie after
it was set afloat, when at the War
Department, right under their noses, the
story could be affirmed or denied, as
the truth might demand. Of a verity,
the office of the Provost Tflamhal should
be exercised!
The despatches received here yesterday
in relation to a second affitir at Great Beth
el, were fabrications—nothing more. Else

XBEI WANT A KING.
For a long time it has been suspected
that the South. Carolina rebels desired to
have a Eng to govern them. m Mt. Rus
sell in his letters to the London Tina,
which reach ns by the Fvlton, confirms tbe
belief that the Carolinians long for a re
turn to Monarchy. According to his state
ment, reproduced in another colnmn, the
people, or at least the planters, of that
State, desire nothing so mnch as “ one of
“the royal race of England to rule over
“them.” Their “ admiration for monarch
“ ial institutions on the English model, for
“ privileged classes, and for a landed aris
“tocracy and gently is undisguised and
“apparentlygenuine.” “Ifthat eonfoimd
“ od ship had sunk,” sayjthey, “ with those
“ Pilgrim Fathers on board, we never
“should have been driven to these extrem
“llloß."
The Admiration of monarchial insti
tutions, privileged daaser and a titled no
bility, prevails not alone in South Carolina.
It is an uppermost thought in the minds of
the ringleader of the rebellion, from Alex
andria to Galveston. Eastern Virginia Js
as full of it as South Carolina..
The beau ideal of a Government among
the secession slave holders embraces these
features: Ist. The working class, to be
slaves—property of the rich. 2nd, A
landed aristocracy^ranking 1 as Marqnisses,
Lords, Counts and Dukes, and wielding
all the legislative power and holding all
the offices. 3d. The poor whites, to be re
duced to the condition of serfs, and used
to keep the blacks in subjection. 4th. A
. large standing army to support the author
ity of the ruling caste and royal family.
Ith. A hereditary Emperor with a grand
court, abnndf 4 °f * courtiers, and -a
great mob of-- Princes and pokes of
the* roval,-blood. 6th. -Deepening of the
slave trade and free traffic in negroes
from Africa. . 7th... Territorial . expan

■ • St. Lquis, Jus 11, 1861.
It Is expected that the for will begin to fly
in this dfy and State in a very short time
hence. TfaeU. S. District’ Court commences
a special session on the 90th Inst, and a grand
jury is to he summoned by U. 8. 'Marshal Raw
lings to convene at the same time. The signi
ficance of these two facts lies in thegeneral
belief that indictments for treason will- be
found and tried at this term., Already there
are a thousand and one rumors in circulation 4
pointing to the Individuals, and the secession
ist# are very active on the street this morning
asking such questions as, “Who is to he ar
rested?” or, “Is it me?” The acting seces
sionists are as quiet as church mice. The
captives ot Camp Jackson suppose that they
of course are exempt from any farther trou
ble, having taken the oath of allegiance. Gen.
Frost paraded Fourth street in citizen’s dress
this morning, looking as neat as If jnst lifted
from a band-box. Were permission given, by
the proper authorities the names of those sus
pected by the active Union men as traitors
liable to arrest might he given. The publica
tion of the names in advance, however, might
defeat the ends of justice, and is therefore im
politic.
Gov. Jackson is in the city—and ho is stop
ping at the Planter’s House—and slept last
night for the first time for many weeks under
the stars and stripes—a line American flag
waving from the hotel roofi - How do you
suppose he screwed up courage to come to
St. Louis? It Is notorious that he has been
frightened out of his wits on a dozen different
occasions In Jefferson City. Tho books and
papers of the Executive office have been
packed up and secreted, and on Saturday
night u carriage and four horses all harnessed,
were in readiness through the night to
convey the Governor and family to a place of
safety in case U. 8. troops, or rather Prank
Blair and*his “horrid German regiments”
should moke their’- appearance. Tne arm*
belonging to the Slate and held subject to
the control of Gov. Jackson have been removed
from Jefferson City to Boonviße and other
places. How do yon suppose the Governor
managed to come toSt Louis after that? Do
you suppose he resolved to put a bold free on
aflairs and come down at any peril? Not a
bit of it. The crafty Executive ,sent an
agent, a personal friend, to Gen. Lyon, last
week, and asked him to guarantee Gov. Jack
eon a personal security against arrest by any
of the troops or Home Guards in event ne vis
ited St. Louis. Gen. Lyon responded that he
knew of no reason why Gov. Jackson was not
as safe as any other loyal citizen in St. Louis,
but if he bad been guilty of treason, his own
conscience might suggest forcible reasons why
he should remain absent. Finally, Gen. Lyon
said that so far as the troops under his com
mand are concerned they should offer no per
sonal indignity to the Governor, and that he
would not interfere with his visit In any way
without the orders of his superiors, or through
direction of the Federal authorities. This
declaration was equivalent to a pass, and Gov. 1
Cl&lb consented to trust his precious person
to the tender mercies of StXonls.
It is reported on tho street to-day, tbat His
Excellency came hither to make a treaty with
Gen. Lyon and Frank Blair. The probability
is that he won’t succeed in doing anything ot
the kind, Neither Lyon or Blair.will be so
stupid as to tall into the trap which bUtam! up
such a hornet’s nest about the oars of Gen.
Harney. There la evidence That the Governor
Is thoroughly acquainted with the position be
occupies. Hon. Willard P. Hall, of St > Jo
seph, a prominent Unionist of that city, re
cently bad an interview with the Governor at'
Jefferson City, in which Mr. Hall plainly told
the Governor that he had seen the Federal
authorities in this city, and there was one of
two things which ho must do. He must either
submit peacefully to the authority of the
United States and cease his treasonable plans,
or he must Jeave the State. Mr. Hall told
Claib. Jackson that there were 13.000 well dis
ciplined troops at the command of Gen. Lyon
in this city, and twice that number, within
easy reach in Illinois and lowa, and that any
resistance to this force would plunge the State
Into civil war and make it run with blood.
Hence if he wished to prevent the unhappy
results, he must at once acquiesce to the full
est extent in the plans and orders of the Gov
ernment, or leave Missouri. Such plain
tnlk as brought the delectable Clalo. to
St. Louis at once, and be is now trying to,
avert the impending cvfl.
The prevailing quiet has not been without
its work. The active Union men of this city
have taken measures to perfect a complete sys
tem of organization among the anti-secession
lets throughout the Stale. One of the meas
ures is tbeeending of circulars to every county
in the State in the following form;
Saint Louis, Jane 11,1861.
Hr Bkab Sib:— Tue friends of the National
Union, without regard to opinions which hsvo
heretofore divided the people into separate par
lies, arc impressed with me paramount import
ance and Imperative doty of forming at once
throughout the State, a great Union party, op
posed to secession and rebellion, and devoted to
the maintenance of that old Government under
which our people have lived so long and so hap-
L this end, a full and frequent correspondence
between oor friends throughout the State ia essen
tial. Wc should know our friends from our/o«;
we should know what facilities and means exist
for promoting our common object, and also , what
steps arc being taken at any time to defeat oor
wishes. We arc ready to communicate without
delay, such information aa you may and
epeoally request to be informed, ba receipt of this,
or as soon as yon can furnish a satisfactory answer
to the following inquiries:
Has any organization been made, or attempted,
in your county, or adjoining counties, under the
late military bill of the Missouri Legislature ? If
so, give the cumber of men, names of officers,
number snd kind of anus kind of oath taken, and
such other facts ss you may deem material.
Have any Vigilance Committees been formed?
If so, give names of officers, number of men, pur
poses of such committees, place of meeting, con
duct, Ac., Ac.
Bare any persons been ordered to leave their
homes ? If so, state their names, where they hare
gone, when they went, for what cause ordered off,
and by whom compelled to leave.
Please give ns your opinion -of the state of the
Union sentiment of jour county, and such other
general information as may be valuable, and write
us frequently.
Aa regards the said Military Bill, those who are
folly competent to Jndge pronounce it unconstitu
tional snd treasonable, and hence its requirements
may be properly resisted, and oucht to bb bb
szstbd.
We earnestly recommend a perfect organization
of Union men as fast as passible, with arms, if to
be had—if not, without them. In the agricultural
districts, where population Is sparse and'organi
ration difficult, we advise a complete enrolment of
the Union men.- By these xnaana our hrlends will
learn their strength, snd, should occasion require,
-can net effectually. This very enrolment will of
itself deter opponents, snd protect na sgslnet acts
of oppression. Finally, we feel fully justified iu
predicting that oor State wiQ not, under any cir
cumstances. go out ont of the Union. We are fully
convinced that our Government possesses the will,
the pewr and the meant for effectually crushing
treason wherever It exists; that wo shall soon be
come an undivided country, and that our country's
enemies wQI be covered and overwhelmed with an'
eternal disgrace.
Any communication yon may make shilL if you
be regarded and treated as perfectly «wi-
The secessionists would be astonished if
they could see tie bushels of an-wen dally
recrived to the above circular. No better
evidence is wanting of the prudence of thou
sands of Union men in every section of the
State, bowed down and crashed by the noisy
brawling secession rowdies. It is desired that
all Micsonriana who have fled from this State
into Illinois, and are now residing in your
State or lowa or Wisconsin, shall respond to
ibta circular by addressing O. D. Filley. Main
street. . . * .
Among recent arrivals In the city is Gen.
ThomasX. Price, member of the Legislature
for Cole county, in which Jefferson City is lo
cated. “General Tom,”, as he is usually
called, was one of • the . strongest Union
ists in the. Missouri Legislature at the
late extra session,” and combatted the altruists
with energy and power.but they outvoted him
self and friends;end all he could downs to
protest agqinst their outrages. Since the ad-
Jouznmentand during the ankir of Camp Jack
son, the Jefferson . City r. Secessionists threat
eneotum with violence, and in the last month
he has recrived doz-.ns of anonymous letters
warning him to leave the State. Bat “Gen.
Tom ” u not one of that Mod; la fact, he Is,
on the; contrary, quite the reverse. In 1850,
as one of the driegation representing the Bea
ton Democracy at the Cincinnati Convention,
14 Gen. Tom ’’ performed the pugilistic feat of
knocking down' three or four door keepers to.
gain admiselbn'to the Hall where the Conven
tion sat, and he is generally recognised as one
of the bravest of the bravo and afraid of no.-

TVashixotok, Jane 8,1661.
Yesterday was as still as Sunday in this city.
Scarce a same was heard bat that of Douglas.
His pictures were every where hang oat, and
crowds conld be seen around them, discours
ing’, in a hushed voice, on his character and
loots.' The people generally seemed to enter
Into the recommendation of Secretaries Sew
ard and Cameron to observe here the day of
his burinlin Chicago. his body been pres
ent with ns, there would have been a pomp
and circumstance of woe as when only a great
man dies. All public business was suspend
ed. Some two thousand rierks In the Depart
ments were away from their desks, and that
too in the midst of the pressing daim* of the
war. Every one of Die great public buildings
was heavily draped In long flowing and grace
fully disposed black linen. That at the De
partment of State was put out the day of his
death, and completely shrouds the whole
building. The Treasury has a becoming de-
Erce of drapery. Tbfe Executive mansion can
ardly be termed the White House, for it is
mest elnborately festooned in black, from the'
pillars and lamp posts to the lofty windows in
front. In this case, the * ends of the cloth are
all scolloped, and the door bell Is hung with
immense crape, and the whole house as still’
as though the dead were its occupant. The
same elaborate display was seen at the War
and Navy Departments. At the Post Office
the black made a striking contrast with the
whiteness of. the marble. Here the pillars
were twined by the drapery as if it were a dark
running vine. The Patent Office was decked
on all three ofits fronts, each column having
a long piece of tho draping in a graceful tie in
front. But the Capitol was the place where
thegloom seemed greatest, for I could not but
. think of it as the home of the great Senator.
The only time I ever saw or beard him was
there, and this was scarce two months ago.
His frame so agile; his dress so tidy: bis voice
so merry; and his wit so genial. I seemed
when there yesterday, to see and hear him
again, and as-1 looked up and around on the
Capitol and saw the heavy folds of the habili
ments of mourning, ! could hardly make it
seem real that it was all for him I had lately
heard raise agencrallaughin these halls.
The occasion was this: Mr. Poster was in
the chair, and .business was'stayed for the
want of« quorum. '■» TL® last uuscurone -came
in tbat completed thu quorum;* “Noqno
rum,” repeated Mr. Poster. Mr. Douglas, who
saw everything, rose, and pointing to Senator
Foot, good hnmoredly said, “Mr. Prealdent,
the quorum ha* come in.” This. I think, was
his last word In the Senate.. He jiadiust been
wrestling with Breckinridge, that dark, Iron
man of destiny, and had- floored 1 him, on the
ancstion of withdrawing the troops from all
ae seceded States, and this little jeu d’uprlt,
-coining in at such a time, was most happy.
Now Breckinridge has more manifestly gone
.to theitraitors. Douglas, too, has gone; but
who had not rather have the fame of the latter
in his grave, transfigured by his later patriot l
hzn, than the infamy of the ex-Vlce President,
.living? “ A living dog ” may be “ better than
a dead lion” for olting and snarling,but'a-
Bon, though dead, is a lion still. I hod a view
from the capitol of the lofty residence of.Hr..
Douglas, and Breckinridge lived in the other
end of tne same.block, Senator Rice between.
Only one will come hack. The places, there
and in the Senate, that lately knew them will
know them no more. I have written many a
hard word against- Mr. Douglas, but his.last
speeches have token all bitterness from my
pen, and bis death has consecrated his virtues.
nil de moriuo nisi bonum.
“Such honors Uluru to her Hero'paid '
And silent mourned the mighty Hector's shade,”
The Capitol has now but few troops, some
forty, for a guard. Busy hands are' at work
with soap and brush, getting it ready for the
4th of July Congress, and some extra touchca
are bring given to the fresco work in the Rep
resentatives* Hall. The story Is all'a sham
that the building was badly damaged, and such
a temple of hlth that Cloacina might have pre
sided there. The loudest complaints were by -
Secessionists, who would raze the whole to
the. ground could they do it. In the base
ment I'visited the four durable ovens, which
have done good service-turning out 12,000
leaves of bread daily. As it happened, there
came in two ladies—one the wife of a Con- •
gressman. Having visited the sick, a dozen
or more, they were about to take a soldier’s
ration. ’ On an invitation X joined the mess,
and for the first time had soldiers* rations,
though many a time have 1 had the same un
der other names', such as fanners* dinners.
There were good x>ork and beaus, baked, ex
cellent t bread, and of which Secretary Camp
bell has his prayer.answered— I “Givens tins
day cur doily bread”—and to top off with—
which was extra ration-si—we had pickles,
nice apple sauce, tea and butten.- One of the
ladies remarked* that so much like
fighting, after her soldiers* meal, that she was
almost afraid she should whip her husband.
Secretary Seward is getting gay in his old
age. He is great on good dinner*, and means
to let the war make ms dinners, no less, and.
to give the officers such rations as they will
remember him; His military levee, on Thura-'
day evening, was graced, among hundreds of.
others, by the-Highlanders* Staff in'flfll
costume. They met at Willard’s ante
room, where they were the stars of the hour.
With their caps so Scotch;; their badge so
defiant— 11 let no one tonch ■me with impuni
ty”—their epaulettes eo rich; their trappings
eo dashing and original; their goat’s hur so
particolored and sweeping down in.a pouch
to the bottom of their mocks; their stockings
.-eogay, and their legs so suggestive'Sf'sanj
couoite and thus > grounding arms before the'
> Queen would be impolite, they presented a
connie and mostremarkableappearance. One
of them had a bowie knife which was extra
vagantly mounted, and along the aide of the
sheath were disposed his Tame and fbrk wjth,
corresponding brilliants in their setting. Only
a company or two have the Highland cUMfein
full, and only the officers have
ones. It may do for gala day and dd
dress; but too Unified for severe MK
44 Fuss and feathers ” Isits peculiarity. There
Is a Regiment of 44 Cajugas ” just come to
this great i( Wigwam,” which fills my admira
tion more than the Highlanders, and . whose
officers' were at Mr. Seward’s lost evening,
with others, chiefly Cabinet dignitaries. Com

[Telegraphic Correspondence of the Commercial,]
Wheeling, Jane IL—The Convention as
sembled at two o’clock, eighty delegates rep
resenting 29 counties on the floor. Dennis B.
Dorsey, of Monongalia county, was elected
temporary Chairman; G. L. Cranmer, Secre
tary. Committees on credentials, roles and
permanent organization, were appointed, be
ing, on Credentials, Arthur’ J. Boermao, of
Wood county; on Boles, John S. Carlisle, of
Harrieon; Permanent Organization, F. H.
Pierpont, of Marion.
The Convention immediately adjourned to
give Committees time to act
There ia no doubt whatever that the Con
vention will proceed to read out the traitors
at Richmond, establish a Provisional Govern
ment, provide for State officers, and complete
the details of an organization to take control
at Richmond the moment rebellion has been
crushed out
Delegates from East of the Blue Ridge tell
me that at least thirty thousand foreign mili
tary votes were cast for secession, and at
Uait tbat number of Union votes repressed
by intimidation. It ia thought the Conven
tion will be in session nearly a month.
The programme of operations which the.
Convention will doubtless adopt, has been
sketched to me by leading members of the
North Western Virginia Central Committee. '
The Convention assumes that they were con
stitutionally elected by the loyal people of
Virginia; that the incumbent State officers are
■ln rebellion and have abdicated, and their ab
dication will he formally declared. The Con
vention is competent under the Constitution
to alter tbat instrument; and will change it to
meet Represent exigencies, jpwwlll-<*•—
ciare tharme General Assembly shall consist
of a certain number of Senators and Represcn
tives, who shall represent the whole State.
After they elect a Governor, he will convene
the Legislature, the members of which- are
members of this convention. It will convene,
appoint necessary State! officers, and provide
lor collection and appropriation of revenue.
The State Government having declared rebel
lion, in tbe 'State, will appeal to the Federal
Government to suppress it with federal forces,
and they’will then move on the rebels.
, County Judicial officers, &c., who refuse to
-take the oalh of fealty will be deposed, and'
loyal offlcers'appolhted in their places.'
‘ 'Wheeling will be declared the capital of
Virginia.*' ■ •
The leading men in Convention consider the
plan altogether practicable.'-
It is a curious fact that the Constitution it
-1 self provides nomode by* which' it maybe
amended, although the Legislature has been
accustomed to dictate the method. Virginians
assume that instrument to he perfect in itself,
which accounts for the apparent omission of
provisions for amending it; and In amending
it the Convention falls back upon the people
as the fountain of power, and clearly justify
the proposed act ol the Convention as in. pur
suance of the'Gonstitntion.
The action of Virginians in 1774, when Gov.
Lord Dnnmore removed the Capital of Vir
ginia on ehlp board, la cited as-a justifying
precedent.
- It will be observed that when the present
Convention was called, it included as dele
gates members of the 'Legislature, who were
elected May 2Sd. ■ The'union members then
elected, will be here, and the amended Consti
tution will embrace them, while secedera will
beprsctlcally excluded..
- This body will also elect U.B. Senators for
the called session of Congress.
It was'designed to divide the State, but
•this project Is abandoned until rebellion is
‘crushed, when* it will be done constitution
ally.
The Unionists are very determined. They
are enthusiastic at the conduct of Kelly’s Vir
ginians at' Pblllippi, and express disappoint
ment that the Union forces were not simulta
neously moved up the Kanawha to scorch Se
cession in that direction.
MejorLoring has been liberated on parole.
Among writings implicating him, found on
CoL Willey, was a 1 commission from Gov.
Letcher,appointing Loring major In the Virgi
nia forces. This did not necessarily involve
him,.but connected with h!s recent visit to
Richmond, it is’damaging. It is inferred that
Willey was conveying it to him.
CoL Kelly is improving, but the chances are
not in favor of his recovery.)

ATTACK UPON *rmt yrnmniv BXOIMENT.
The Second Michigan Regiment, CoL Rich
ardson; arrived at 4 o’clock-this morning.
Fzcm Cant. Lawson, of Company G, we de
rive the following account of the trip through
and from Baltimore:
Word had comefrcm the United States Mar
.shal that an attack would be made and the
train halted seven mQc-s the other aide of the
Monumental City, where themen loaded their
muekets. The orders were to avoid an en
counter If possible, but, if unavoidable, to
take no halt' measures, but for each company
to fight to the death, and for the pioneers, to
make dean work with houses fitim which they
were assailed.
In a suburb on the other side a brick was
thrown at a private. It didn’t bit,but the Or
derly Sergeant of Company Redrew-his re
volver ana fired at the Stoner. ’ He was seen
to fall, but whether killed or not la nnknown.-
At the depot a raw private accidentally dis
charged his musket, the ball from which
whisked through the car, causing great excite
ment, but doing no damage.
Two miles tins side of Baltimore a shot
from behind a fence went through acar. Tho
ughts were extinguished, and the men ordered
to form in line of battle, if the shot shouldbe
followed up by more. Sentinels were posted
in each car.- -j
Near the Belay House, firing was heardfrom
one of cur picket guards. It was reported
that they hod-been attacked and* had killed
lour men. The truth is not known.
Capt. Lawson adds that the regiment receiv
ed a hearty welcome from the'womcn, beyond
and in Baltimore, while no man, so.-or. as he
caw, greeted them. The iregmtent-is a fine
lookmgbody numberingl,o4o. • The uniforms
are dark blue, like the Ist Michigan, and they
are armed partially with new Minle gnns, and
partially with the Harper’s Feny musket of
1846. They are well supplied .with clothing
and camp equipage. Thirty women, who will
serve as nurses and laundresses,' accompany
the regiment This? afternoon the regiment
were received by Gen. Scott and the President
at their residences. ' .

The Postmaster of St Louis writes to the

tinues to receive, as usual, the utter and news-

warded in confonnily with tie laws of the
United States, and the regulations of : the
Post-Office Department The JNcw Orleans
mail of June 2d, came to hand regularly. \He
also states that he has continued to dispatch
the mails South as heretofore, pnderstondlng
that he was to do so unless some obstructions
were interposed. Other- Postmasters have
written letters of a similar purport The De
partment reeponds.tbat they most forward no
more matter to the rebel States, and must de
mand postage on matter received thence, as if
unpaid, since, if stamped,- it if with stolen
Etamps. We publish the lbllotfing, obtained
from the flies of the Department, for the.
guidance of Postmasters: .
“There are now no Postmasters of the Uni

to Eell etamps or collect postage since the Ist

and mailed within those States, as unpaid
matter, to be held for postage. * All such mat
ter is ordered to be sent to the Dead Letter
Office at Washington, to be disposed of accor

The Department will make a very satisfac
tory disposition of the newspapers sent to the
Dead Letter Office. They will be distributed
among the soldiers at the Capitol. It is,
therefore, to be hoped that the newspaper
matter intended lor the South will be mailed
sensual. More than 85,000 soldiers are now
receiving their mail through the Washington

Washington, June 10.— -The Secretary of
War baa addressed a letter to the Surgeon-
Genera] t In which he says: “Daring the pres
ent war, the forces being made np chiefly of
volunteers, the public sentiment} and the hu
manity of- the age, require that the services of
women as nurses should be made available in
the general hospitals, -where, except in a very
humble department, they have been excluded,
da many carefully selected women are in
training, in the-vorious cities of the loyal
States, it Is the order and wish of the Depart-'
ment, that women be adopted or substituted
for the men now in the general hospital,;
whenever it can be effected, and that only
such women as have received previous train
ing for the purpose be accepted as nurses,,
except when these con no longer be had ; and
it is ordered that none bo received, except
those who have presented their applications
to a lady appointed by the Department to pre
side over the volunteer womcn-nurses, and
who fiball have sole authority to select and
acctpt nurses, who arc required to be above
the age of thirty, with certitificatea of char
acter and capacity.
Miss Dlxhas been appointed superintend
ent of the women nurses, with the exclusive
charge of accepting such as she may deem
properly fitted for the service. The trans
portation, Eubsistcnce and wages of such nur
ses as may be accepted by her to be paid from
such moneys that would be expended in the
wages and support of men nurses, or are de
rived from the usual resources of hospital -
service.
A lady of undoubted- veracity, who was
within full view of the batteries at Aquia
Creek when attacked by the Freeborn, com
municates to her friends in Washington, that
fifteen were killed to her certain knowledge,
and baa no denbt as many as fifty were killed,
besides a large number of wounded, and that
every pains was taken to conceal the fact even
frem the friends of the victims, and that as
fast as any catnlty occurred the sufferer was
removed to the woods for concealment She
sajs the- batteries contained 400 persons,
troops included. The studied concealment of
the rebels in respect to their less in thi sec
ond snd third attack at Aquia Creek, made
more than awtek ego, taken in connection
with the. quick circulation of the. news of
their escape from loss in their first attack,
affords strong presumption that the casulties
in the two last engagements were serious.
Steam Wagon.—Mr. Thomas L. Fortune of
Mt. Pleasant, Kansas, has Invented-a steam
wagon to be used in hauling freight across the
Western plains. The machine has, we learn,
been tried in St. Lcnis, giving perfect satisfac
tion to the. spectators. It is claimed that the
wagon was propelled up a grade of6oo feet to
the mile, at the rate of seven miles an hour,
with perfect case. The inventor states that
this machine, got up in good style, costs about.
$2,500. It wm haul ten tons at a load,- and>
make three trips per month, or 360 -tons per
annum, which at $l6O per ton amounts to $57,-
609. A force of she hands will run it day and
night. Mr. Fortune estimates this steam
wagon to be equal in transportation service to
seventy-five ox-wagons, which require In oat
fit $85,250. The expense of feeding the cat
tle for seventy-five wagons, the. loss of cattle
and. other expenses considered, will more than
keep one steam wagon in wood and water.
Orr fob Fobt Ajjekcbombie.— Thepreaalng
call of the War Department for the remaining,
companies of the Second Infantry sUUin the
State, has induced the!authorities .here-to
hasten forward Lieut. Cqlonel Miller’s, com
mand to Fort'Abercrombiewithout waiting
longer for the arrival of the men’s clothing.*
As we have sure indications of .warm and set;
tied weather,it is considered safe for the men’s
health to go forward with what they have, and'
to trust for the supplies to be sent on in a few
days. Consequently, Colonel Miller, with
Captain Acker’s and Captain Putnam’s com
panies will take up their line of'march'this
morning for the Bra River Valley. The alac
rity and seal with which the members of the
two companies obey the order Is highly com
pllmentary to them as well trained soldiers.—

'WAsiunotok, Jane 12.
The report which was enrr ent here last eve
ning at a late hour, and was . telegraphed to
the morning journals of all the principal cit
ies, that Gen. Butler had carried the rebel bat
teries at Great Bethel, proves to have been a
mischievous invention. The appetite of the
public is so greedy for news, that reports, in
themselves, highly improbable, are. eagerly
caught up, and, passing from month to month,
become facts to half the people who. hear
them. .
But what was not true to-day may be true
to-morrow. General Butler’s brother, now
here,-jnst from Fortress Monroe, with official
reports of. the affair in which Gen. Pierce led,
says that the General expected to take the
batteries this morning. .
Ihe loss in the unsuccessful attack was not
as serious as was at first supposed. Fifteen
were killed and fifty wounded among the
Federal troops. Loss of the rebels not ascer
tained.
, The weather has been so extremely hot hero
during the last few days, that no forward
movement.could he thought ofi Yesterday
during the march of Michigan Second to their
encampment, two miles north of Georgetown,
some fifteen men dropped in the ranks from
sheer exhaustion. The troops were worn ■by
want of sleep and the discomforts of travel.
It is now evident t9 military men, and so set
down in military circles, that no advance will
be made upon Manassas Junction until Gen.
Patterson’s column of. Pennsylvanians from*
Chambersbarghhave obtained a foot-hold on
the sacred soil of Virginia. . And his move
ments depend upon and must he measured by
the advance of Gen. McClellan’s boys from the
West. ,
Six more Ohio regiments have been ordered
into Western Virginia, to clear the valley of
the Kanawha of Secessionists who ore harross
log the peaceable Union men.
It is understood here that the Virginia State
Convention will call out by the exercise of Its
sovereign authority, eight regiments of loyal
troops to he armed and equipped by the Fed
eral Government for the war. They will pro,
bably find plenty of employment in the dis
tricts from which they are tohe recruited.
A large number of hosts were sent from
Georgetown, up the. canal, yesterday. It is
supposed that they are intended to carry over
the Potomac onr troops at Edwards’ Ferry,
between hero and Harper’s Ferry. The three
battalions of District volunteers and the
Pennsylvania First -and New York Ninth,
with a battery of light artillery, of whose
marching I have advised yon, arc in posses
sion of. the former place, ere this.
Professor Lowe has been ordered to repair
'iMMMIULJf iriifa ins balloon and. mronantic
apparatus to Fortress Monroe, and place him
self at the disposal of Gen. Butler, who will
by the Professor’s aid learn what is going on
among the rebels around him.
The Transportation' Department here now
is In possession of abont 700 wagons, 2,500
. horses and mules and 1,000 men. Thera are
thought to be sufficient for an' advance when
it Is ordered.
• • Notwithstanding the withdrawal of the
troops there are still 18,000 on this side of the
Potomac.
. General Scott is highly pleased with the rail
road speed and military celerity which have
distinguished Gen McClellan’s advance from
Wheeling to Cumberland.
‘ Ten more regiments will be added to Gen.
Butler’s command at Fortress Monroe, with
out the least possible delay. This Is inter
preted to mean an advance upon Richmond
over the route between James and York
rivers, at the same time that Geo. Scott sweeps
down upon that place from the comp at Alex
andria. The folds of the General’s plan begin
to enclose the enemy. The rebels must soon
retreat or hazard an atttack from these
columns directed against them.
A Secession Flag Captured*
[Special Dispatch to Chicago Tribune.}
Caiuo, Jane 12,166 L
- The first recormoisance from this point
down the Mississippi, took place to-day.
, For this purpose, Company E, Capt. Den
nison, of Peoria; Company F, Capt. Hanna,
of Pekin, both of CoL Ogelsby’s Regiment;
a squad of Capt. Hopkins’ company of artil
lery ; Messrs. Richardson, of the N. T. 2H

steamer City of Alton, Capt. Barnes, and wont
down the river to Island No. 3, about 5 miles
below Columbus, Ky., and 25 miles below
Camp Defiance.
At Columbus, a Secession flag was flying.
On our return, the steamer went near to
shore and the Rebels around the flog were re
quested to haul it down. This they refused
to do; when the steamer was brought to
shore, and Capt. Barnes, accompanied by
three or four others, under cover of the artil
lery and Infantry, cut the flag down and
brought it on board. Shortly after the steam
er left the'shore, a rifle shot was fired at the
boat, but no damage was done. The flog was
to Camp Defiance and received with
great rejoicings by the troops. The Rebels at
■ Columbus were terribly frightened, and dis
patched an extra train to Union City, to in
form the Rebel Gamp there that the whole U.
S. forces at this post were after them.
From St* Lottlit
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.!
St. Louis, June 12-
,As was stated in my dispatch of Tuesday
night, the conference between the State and
Federal authorities in this city on Tuesday
was broken up without any pacific conclusion.
Gen. Lyon on the part of. the United States, :
was firm In his refiisalto remove or disband
the Federal troops, and equally firm in de
manding that the State should abstain from
any move under her Infamous militia law.
Gov. Jackson and Gen. Price were persistent
in the refusal to give any pledges, and after a
four hours’ fruitless session.they left in .a
special train for Jefferson City on Tuesday
night.
Later intelligence to-day gives a new and
sharply different phase to the position of the
State authorities, and intense excitement has
bear caused here throughout to day from this
cause. It hat become known that by the or*
den of Gov. Jackson the railroad bridges
across the Osage and the Gasconade
rivers, respectively ten mQes, and thirty
five miles this side of Jefferson City, were
burned immediately after the passage of the.
special train, causing breaks'that thus cut off
all connection with the CapilaL Thai tele
graph wires have also been cut.
:As may be imagined, the feeling here among
a very wide circle of loyal Missourians, is fa
vorable to bilging Claib. Jackson to the first
tree. . This will give a new activity and im
portance to military operations here, for which
the ! Union men, and Federal troops are
thoroughly ready.- This evening 600 U. S,
treepa left for the south west branch of tho
Pacific railroad to guard the trade and bridges.
This Is a feasible route to Springfield.
To-moirow a battalion leaves to take com
plete possession of the Pacific railroad as for
wcet as Golcorda Bridge. ’ Much sensation
has been caused here, and .very Utile less sat
isfaction among loyal men .by the arrest of
O. W. Barrett, brother of the notorious Dick,
on a charge of treason. ~He was taken into
custody by the U. 8. Marabal. His offence is
the enlistment of recruits for the Southern
Confederacy.'
A gang of sixteen suspected persons were
arrested on Flatte Valley, opposite the Arse
nal, on Tuesday night, en route southward, be
lieved to be of the “ let-us-alone” order of pa
triots. They were taken to headquarters,
where thirteen purged themselves by taking
the oath of allegiance, and were discharged.
Three others—Edward Pigners, Edward Blen
neriassett and William J. Preston—are de
tained for trial.
The appearances to-day and this evening are

State of Preparation in Washington.
[Special to the Post.] *
Washington, June 12.—The secession pa
pers of Baltimore are monstrously falsifying
the n flair at Bethel. The Sun says 1,000 were
killed end wounded. These misstatements

to check any outbreak In Baltimore. In H.

but It is believed he will be elected.
Private dispatches from East Tennessee say
the Union men there are folly determined to
resist secession, and take up arms in defense
of the Government.

Prof. Lowe, the balloonist, Is nere. He pro
poses to the Government a system of recon
noitring that will be tested to-morrow. Lowe
will be accompanied by a telegraphic opera
tor. The balloon wBl be held to the proper
height by a cord, and also be connected with
the earth by insulated wires, which will he at
tached to tho recording machine in the War
Department. The operator in the balloon will
thus communicate directly with the War De
partment. Of course the same experiment
will be practicable in the field, the operator
and balloon, above the smoke of the contest,
giving information of all that la transpiring in
the enemy’s camp. .
There is anotner movement of troops to
take place in the morning. Five regiments
are under orders to leave, and willdo ao at
onc&
Egl am authorized to state that the Govern
ment will receive aay regiments that willl
come to Washington. If regiments come on
their own responsibility, they will be received
whether they have the State authority or not!
G en. Sanford sent back some fugitive slaves
to Virginian masters, causes a great
deal ot dissatisfaction.
The propeller Resolute arrived last night,
hod seized-two schooners down the river,
which had bees, carrying provisions' for the
enemy, and burned them both.
The columns of Gen. .RUterson, tnarrfiW
forward, will add so much strength to thede
fecce ot Washington that to assail it with auy
force at the command of Beauregard will be
madness.
The Convention at ‘Wheeling, win give a
fresh Impetus to the Union sentiment in the
Border the re-opening of the Balti
more & Ohio Railroad will supply laciliLiea of
transportation from the West, and will bind
commercial Baltimore to her correspondents.

ery day, from Kentucky, full of the strongest

of the Southern tier. ’
Marshal Kane of Baltimore, has sworn in
1,000 secessionists os special patrol-men for

bod. There is reported to be a secret band of
3,500 men, with arms, who are ready to rise
against the Government as soon as the Federal
troops meet with the first defeat. It is sold
the U. 8. Marshal Bonlfort, of Md., will absent
himself from Baltimore on election day, and
leave his department In charge of his deputy
—seme say for want of nerve. If so, there
are signs of trouble. *
Latent Fewi from Earope by the Adri
allc.
The Louden Times has an editorial on the
speeches of American Ministers and others at
the recent meeting at Paris, charging them
■with groundless irritability and anger against
England. It also alludes to the violent an*
ItDadveielons of the Northern press towards
England, and says Unionists are in tact en
raged because Great Britain presumes to be
central. It adds: “If this bothetemper of
tbe Northern press now, what will It become
a month hence? It Is plain that the utmost
care and circumspection must be used by
every man and party in England to avoid
plving offence to either of the incensed bel
ligerents.”
Eighteen horses ran for the Derby. “ Ket
tle-Dram” won by a length. “Dundee,” a
black horse, came second.
From Kentucky,
Louisville, Jane 12. —Saturday last was a
glorious da; for the good people of Kentucky
and Indiana. A Union barbecue was given by
the citizens of Oldham county to the citizens
of Clark county. Indiana, it is estimated
that at least 5,000 people were present, and
the Indies of the two States were present to
the number of 1,000., The beat feeling pre
vailed, and throughout the vast assemblage
the Union sentiment was uppermost. The
people resolved to stand by each other and by
the union and the Constitution of their ebon

From Marilud*
Hagebstowk, Md., June 13.—-Two reasons
are assigned for the noa-advance ot Gen. Pat-
division—first,. that the Legislature
1b In session at FrederidE,‘and tbat a column
from Washington must come by that route.
They hope that the Legislature will adjourn
this week; ard the Government desire to keep
the troops out of Maryland till after the Con
gressional election to-morrow.
The action of the Maryland House of Dele
gates, in instructing their U. S. Senators to
vote for the recognition of the Southern Cou
fedtraev, has excited deep resentment among
the Union men in this portion of Maryland-
Many say that the Federal Government ought
to disperse the Legislature.
From Mew Orleans*

leit New Orleans on Wednesday last, reports
