THE NEWS, The Senate was yesterday exclusively employed on confirmations, whereof a list we give elsewhere. The latest intelligence from our army before Vicksburg, gives the grounds fpr Ihe rumor that the Yazoo expedition had leached Usdestinalion in the rearof Vicks burg, thus investing the city on that side, and threatening its railroad connections eastward. This expedition left the Missis- fippi at Yazoo Pass, two hundred and Seventy miles above Vicksburg. Thence the route passes icto the Coldwater River, nud down it thirty miles; thence down the Tallahatchie one hundred and fitly mil..; Ihcnce down the Yazoo two hundred and twenty; making, with the length of the Pass, a total distance of nearly four hun dred and fifty miles. It was a hold scheme, and must have astonished the rchs. We hope the news is true, . The freaks of gold in the North are more than paraUelcd in Dixie. The Richmond Ditjiaich of March sth says that “gold on Saturday last was sold at $2.50 and $2.00, advancing during the day,” and that “ yes- Icrday (Wednesday last) it went up like a rocket, until it reached $3.00 (Confederate scrip), being an advance (from Saturday) of forty per cent.” The news from Vicksburg to Saturday, announces the canal at that place finished, and that the water was to he let in the day following, with every prospect that the Way would he open for our gunboats to pass down at once. The fate of the In dianola is still uncertain. The Proclamation of the President Should reach and accomplish the end de- Sired, the voluntary return of all military _dc3crtcrs. When Its limit has expired Ihe measures to bring about such return Trill be quite of another class. The Connecticut Democrats are tjnkind lo one man Richardson. They ask him to keep out of the State, and not spoil their canvass. New England must be left out in the cold at once to pay for that insult The prospect for a working Republican majority in the present Congress is good. Eoyal men will rejoice and take courage, lifyal men in Connecticut must work to peenre such a result. Gen. Hooker pronounces the verdict of history. The Peninsula campaign failed because of the incompetency of the Com taauder-in-Chicf. This is testimony, and only thus could have been elicited from Ceu. Hooker. But it is the truth. STAND BY THE REPUBLIC. The following succinct, comprehensive Sind unmistakable pledge is being exten sively circulated at the East: Wo. the undersigned. Citizens of the United States, hereby associate ourselves under the name -JSilWcof the LOYAL NATIONAL LEAGUE. We pledge ourselves to an unconditional loyalty lo the Government of the United States, to an un wavering support of Its efforts to suppress the re bellion, and to spare no endeavor lo maintain un* impaired the National Unity, both in principle and territorial boundary. The primary object of this League is, and shall be, to bind together all Loyal men, of all trades and professions. In a common union to maintain thepower, glory and integrity of the Nation. THE SITUATION. If you are disheartened at delays unex explalncd to you, and grow more dismni in proportion as trom dearth of news your dai ly paper news gets dull, just thinkwhat has been accomplished. Congress, just ad journed, has given the Government un limited means and power. No Copper head scheme can cut off men and money from the measures of subjugation for the next .two years. The winter has past— Ihe winter of our discontent—and the sea son of Active operations is at hand. The jinnies of Hooker before Fredericksburg, tester before Charleston and Savannah Foster in North Carolina, Banks in New Orleans, Rosecrans in Middle Tennessee, and Grant before Vicksburg, are all safely past the evils of winter bivouac, and the health reports from each are excellent or improving daily. These armies are all in full strength, and their veteran material consolidated and muscularized by soldier ly experience, they are all ready to fell at work. Then, too, the past few months hare given ns the noble iron-dad fleet, lor which Ihc war must have waited. Already the leading coast dries of Rebeldomare quak ing with alarm at the threatening pres ence of our mailed monsters, which are in numbers sufficient to thunder at the same lime at the entrances of Charleston, Savan nah and Wilmington. All these may Shortly be in the hands of the Govern ment. Not to speak of what may be, it is enough to say that the preparations on land and sea, which the Government has now carried to perfection, are ended, and thunders will shortly roll all round the war horizon. This is the situation with which the third campaign against the reb els opens. The Battle Bummer of 1803 is at hand. CLEAR away the windfalls. A windfall is a fruit prematurely blown from the tree. It may have seemed a spe cimen fair and rosy enough, but a summer breeze tests it, and down it drops. Or chard ists know the reason. The fruit con cealed a worm at its core. Its hold on the parent bough was being dally weakened, and at the first trial of the prying zephyr it fell So you have seen the turf under your trees strewn with windfalls by a mo derate shaking of the boughs. And some of the fallen fruit was that the child ren had chronicled as earliest taking on the hues of ripening. The windfall often promises better that soberer and Bounder fruits adjoining, that will look down securely upon it when it has gone to grass. That is the way* with windfalls and orchards. But the fruit that remains, is all the belter for the thinning out The fate of the windfall is to them an advan tage, for the tree is relieved from wasting its juices to feed concealed grubs that will only become the parents of windfalls in other seasons. Another thing is worth no ticing. The orchardist, with an eye to the future, hastens to clear away the windfalls. Every one of them destroyed, or banished, counts one in the fruit-grower’s war against >.hy^pcmlgs T for in each is an active grub destroyed, without - There Is another variety of Recently they seemed a goodly and prom *ring portion of the noble army of the Union. They drank its pay and emolu ments, and sunned their shoulder-straps in Ihc full beams of its favor. But the breeze baa tested them and down they fell. The earnest principles of the Emancipation the strong necessities of the measures of Conscription and Taxation were too much for the light hold of these windfall offi cers on loyalty. They call this resigna tion. In eveiy such instance the resigna tion is shared by all loyal men. "Why Should we not be resigned to gel rid of officers in whose hearts lurks treason? But having fallen, having rid the service cf the disgrace they entailed upon it, the hint Is borrowed from the orchordists, End stringent departmental orders arc is sued for clearing away the windfalls. Our dispatches from Memphis announce the action of Gen. Grant, and other VOLUME XV. commanders are pursuing the same course. Every windfall officer is to be banished from the army lines, with tbe same care with which a fruit-grower pro tects his pet pippins from the contact with wormy and fallen fruit This clears up some of our home mysteries, and explains the enforced exodus of some of our home Copperheads. The service is better with out these men than with them, and the army lines are wisely purified by their banishment. Xo Inquirers alter Friends in the Army.

[From the Knoxville Ecgieter, Slet.] Major Thomas, commanding the Legion of Cherokee Indians, who Lave rendered much service to the Confederate cause in East Ten nessee, was in our city yesterday. The Maior is now with his aboriginal allies in the moun tains on the border between this State and .North Carolina, where he is in reality concili atmg the tories. Let us mention a fact or two, communicated to us by Major Thomas, to the credit of these dusky warriors They excel any troops in either the Northern or Southern armies for subordination—an Indian always executes an order with religious fideli ty: They scrupulously respect pnvate prop there are no reports of depredations where they are encamped. They are the best scouts in the world, and hence the good that they have accomplished among the mountain tories and bushwhack ers. A notice that Major Thomas’ Indians are in a section of countiy brings in the dodgers at once, for they know that hiding out will not avail against the Cherokees. By thdr aid the Major has enlisted, without bloodshed, a great many men in his corps of sappers and miners, who have thus been con verted from mischievous tories and bush whackers into nselul employees of the Con federate Government. The Major, if the war lasts, will yet be of inlinite service to the Government. A NEW SEAL. Mr - Cla r. of Alabama, submitted the following: * v That the committee on flag and seal be linstructcd to inquire Into the propriety of a^ allc i 'as the seal of thcConfed crate States of America, and of taking as a model the equestrian statue of Washington on the Caul esuare c **Ji * B it appears from an East ern view. Mr. Clay said that though the Confederate Government had been established two years, ft as yet had no scat but a mere scrawl, the House and Senate having been unable to agree upon one. The “cavalier” appeared^ for many reasons an appropriate device for a seal. It required no interpretation, but was com prehensible both by the learned and the un educated. The Southern people were panic ulatly. a nation of horsemen. Besides, it would indicate the origin of Southern society. The people of the South descended from the old cavaliers, while the people of the North were descendants of the Puritans. Cavalier meant, in most modem languages, knight or gentleman, ® ° * The resolution was adopted. THE BOMBARDMENT OF FORT M’ALLISTEE. [From the Richmond Examiner, 9th.] Up to the hist night nothing Liter had been received at the War Department from Fort McAllister. The latest accounts wo have say that the Yankee fleet after a terrific bombard ment had retired, and it is thought the enemy bad been again repulsed, atleast he has shown no further disposition to renew the attack. The bombardment la represented to have been terrific. The lire of three iron-clada and three mortar boats were concentrated on the fort at the same lime and shell and shots literally rained on the The fire commenced abont nine o'clock in morning, and continued np to a laic hour in the evening ana iarom>>l the night. But when morning came the Yankee fleet had disappeared. This Is the enemy’s fourth attack on Fort McAllister, and he has Culcd, strange to say; and in the contest, the fort is said to have sustained hut little damage, and our loss is said to be two wounded and none killed. It shows that Yankee gunboats and mortars orcahnmbng. In fact, we are told that, so accustomed have become tbc people of Vicksburg to them, and so little Is the fear manifested at their shelling when the fire commences, the people go out to witness it as a kind of amusement. ANOTHER OFFICIAL STATEMENT ABOUT THE IN DIANOLA. [From the Richmond Enquirer, March 7.] Jackson, March 6,1563. General 8. Cooper General Stephenson, commanding Vicks burg, telegraphs March 4, as follows: The Indianola is not destroyed. We arc at work to raise her. One eleven-inch gun was burst; the others arc not injured. J. C. Pemberton, Lieut. Gen. BANES MOVING ON PORT HUDSON. [From the Richmond Enquirer, March 7.] Por.T Hudson, March S. via I Mobile, March 6, 1563. ) Intelligence, reliable and of the greatest Importance, has been received from the front. The preparations being made by Banks’ army point unmistakably to an early advance. Seventeen mortar boats, the sloop-of-war Mii-sissippi, and the gunboat Essex, arc now anchored at Baton Rouge. Banks’ force is fully thirty thousand. Ambulances and lit ters are being prepared. The opinion of mil itary men Is that this point will be attacked in a few days. Tbc utmost confidence pre vails among both officers and men in our ability to defeat the enemy. The report that our pickets had been driven in is unfounded, but an immediate advance la anticipated: The latest information confirms the dissatisfaction in the abolition ranks. It is reported that Banks is opposed to the attack, but has orders from the War Department. GOLD GOING UP IN RICHMOND. [From tbc Richmond Dispatch, March 7.] Subsequent to our last report a further de cided advance in the premium for gold was established, $3.50 being the selling rate yes terday, and to-day $3.25 for silver. This ad vance is believed to be owing to the demand from foreigners, who are removing to the kingdom of Abraham the First in large num bers. BREAD GOING UP IN CHARLESTON. [From the Charleston Courier, Feb. 25.] The bakers of this city have wised the price of bread to twenty-five cents for a half pound loaf. Flour is selling at slxtyflvo dol lars per barrel. An enormous sin In the eyes of God. Aoblc MfisMion of* Chicago La* die*. [Murfreesboro Correspondence Cleveland Herald.] In speaking ot those who have been cn tjgcd nerc in carrying out the objects of the unitary Commission I cannot refrain from mentioning the names of two ladles from Chicago, Mrs. Tinkham and Mrs. Hos mer. These ladies, belonging to the Soldiers’ Aid Society of Chicago, were provided with a few stores by the Chicago Board of Trade. The stores with which they were supplied being soon exhausted and their special mission accomplished, they voluntari ly took charge of a cooking apartment at tached to the united States Sanitary Commis sion here, and for the past five or six weeks have labored constantly and effectively in pre ■'parin&articles ol food,"etc., furnished by the Commissujnp which among the hospitals assisted by oth ers. Tne amount of good can not be easily estimated. The dally presence-.of those ladies in the hospitals, and the dishes prepared by their skillful hands—prepared os only women can prepare them—will bo re membered with gratitude by many Federal soldiers as a “light in a dark place.’* Why John Tan llnren Got Ont. [From his late Cooperlnstltuto spcch.] The Democratic party, as you all know, nine years ont of tee,controls the Government of the country. It requires, therefore, no great patriotism on their part to be attached to the Government and the country. It Is, in fact, an attachment to themselves. [Laugh ter.] As a general rule, they are wise, pru dent, and patriotic. Occasionally blind guides or bad drivers take some sleepy pas sengers into bad roads and upset them, as they did in 1848. [Laughter.] But then they wake up; the passengers get out [laugh ter]; they inquire the right road; they get a lantern mid eventually they come all right. .[Laughter.] I think they will do so now, and 3'f t it seemed to me, as a careful man, looking at their course, just at this moment, that li vras prudent for me to get out and walk. , [Great laughter and three cheers.] FROM WASHINGTON. A PROCLAMATION BY THE PRESIDENT. MILITARY AND CIVIL CONFIR- MATIONS. General Hooker on tke Peninsula Failure. GOSSIP AT THE CAPITAL. Washington, March 11.—The following was issued to day: BT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES— PROCLAMATION RESPECTING SOLDIERS AB SENT WITHOUT LEAVE. Executive Mansion, March ID. In pursuance of the 26th section of an act of Congress, entitled “An act for enrolling and call ing out the national forces,” approved on the 8d of March, 1803, L Abraham Lincoln, President and Commander-In-Chief of tbe army and navy of the United States, do hereby order and command that all soldiers enlisted or drafted Into the'service of the United States, now absent from their regi ments without leave, shall forthwith return °to their respective regiments; and I do hereby de clare and proclaim that all soldiers now absent from their respective regiments without leave, who shall, on or before the Ist of April, 1863, re port themselves at any rendezvous designated by the general ordei s of the War Department No. 68, may be restored to their respective regiments with out punishment, except the forfeiture of pay and allowances during their absence, and all who do not return within the time above specified shall be arrested as deserters and punished as thehw provides. And whereas evil-disposed and disloyal persons, at sundry places, have enticed and procured sol diers to desert and absent themselves from their regiments, thereby weakening the strength of the armies, and prolonging the war, and giving aid and comfort to the enemy, and cruelly exposing the gallant and faithful soldiers remaining in the ranks to Increased hardships and dangers, I do, therefore, call upon all patriotic and faithful citi zens to oppose and resist the aforementioned dan gerous and treasonable crimes, and aid in restor ing to their regiments all soldiers absent without leave, and to assist In the execution of the act of Congress for enrolling and calling out the national forces and for other purposes, and to support the proper authorities in the prosecution and punish ment of offenders against said act, and in sup pressing the insurrection and rebellion. In testimony whereof, 1 have hereunto set my hand. Done at the city of Washington, this 10th“ day of March, A. D. 1863, and of the independence of the Dnitcn States the 87tb. (Signed) Abcauam Lincoln. By the President: Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War, [Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune,] Washington, March 11,15G3. Gen. Fltz Henry Warren and Major Elijah Sills, arc prominent candidates for the Gov ernorship of lowa. Gen. Blanker, Cols. D’ Utassyand Deforest, are to he tried by general court married at New York next week, on charges of the most serious character, unless dismissed the ser vice without trial. Major Gaines will be judge advocate at the trial. The Navy Department Is about to issue an advertisement for sea-going, iron-clad vessels of all tonnage, on a new model; to carry ten cascmatcd guns weighing twenty tons, with carriages; iron masts, boats and rigging; to have two pairs of engines, and to be twenty one feet draught. Proposals arc to bo opened within thirty days, it Is contemplated. The nine new Monitors building arc con siderably longer, and intended to have twice the speed of those afloat. They arc getting along wclL The Senate to-day hung upon the following nominations: Major Generals Wright, Blair and Granger; Brigadier Generals Cogswell, regular army; Hunt, Chief of Artillery of Hooker’s army; Colonel Hayes, 63d Pennsyl vania; Sibley, Minnesota; S. Cameron, 33d Ohio; David Stuart, 55th Illinois; Schimmel fenning, 74th Pennsylvania. The Senate Military Committee reported hack the nominations to brevet rank, without recommendation. The committee are against the confirmation of any of the three or four hundred nominated. It is ascertained that the guerilla party wliich captured Stoughton consisted of only eleven of whom reside in the vicinity and will »e arrested, The Senate disposed of most of the inllita ry and civil nominations to-day, and hopes. are entertained of an adjournment on Friday. Gen. Hooker was examined to-day before the joint Committee on the Conduct of the "War. The first question presented was to what he attributed the failure of the movement on the Peninsula. Be stated that as he was on oath he must answer the question. He attributed the failure to the incornpetency of the Command • ing General. Hon.* J. W. Noel], member of Congress from Missouri, now lies so ill in this city, that his family have been sent for. The statement that Gen. Hunter is to be superceded In the command of the Depart ment of the South is set at rest by the fact that John Hay, the President’s Assistant Pri vate Secretary starts to-morrow to assume a place on his stall Gen. W. Strong, of New York, Is strongly urged by the Northwestern Governors as Mili tary Governor of Arkansas in place of Phelps. There were thirteen votes in the Senate against Cassius M. Clay’s confirmation, but no discussion. Seward’s influence did it. Letters from England call renewed atten tion to the immense fleet building in Great Britain for the rebels, and insist upon the ne cessity of a peremptory demand upon the Palmerston Government to put a stop to this mode of making war. No decision has been reached os to issuing letters of marque and reprisal. The question is still under Government consideration. Gov. Kirkwood is confirmed as Minister to Copenhagen. It Is doubtful if he accepts. The Democrats of Connecticut have sent word to Richardson of Illinois, for God'stake to keep out of their State. They say his efforts in New Hampshire only served to increase the Republican vote largely. A party of refugees which came in to-day passed Moucil’s band, with Stoughton and a hundred horses in charge, cn route to Rich mond. A refugee who came in to-day left Richmond on Saturday. He says he saw four brigades of rebel troops at Sexton’s Junction, going southward. Pryor has been largely reinforced on the Blackwa’er. By careful calculation it is ascertained that the Republicans will have a clear working majority in the next Congress, unless Con necticut and Maryland make a material change in their delegations, which is not probable. Washington, March 11.—The Senate, In executive session to-day, confirmed the fol lowing nominations: Leonard Swett, of Illinois, and E.

CHICAGO, THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 1863, The Senate will close its session this week, probably to-morrow. New Tons, itarch XL—The N. Y, Twtea n ashington dispatch states: Nine citizens of Fairfax were arrested there to-day and sent to the Old Capitol Prison, charged with having piloted, the rebels in their late raid upon that place. The rebels who entered Fairfax on Monday, jost saved their distance in escaping with their plunder, Col. Johnson following after them with a cavalry force so sharply as to recapture thirty or forty of the horses, A Norfolk letter says: The recent rcconnoissance of Col. Dodge from Norfolk, has proved an eminent success. He marched 110 miles, visiting Southfield, Chickatuck, and Blackwater Bridge. He met the enemy at Windsor, near the Tatter point, drove in their advance upon the main body, then attacked them on the flanks, and forced them to retire to Blackwater. The fight lasted only forty minutes. The Committee of the New York Chamber of Commerce had an interview with the Presi dent yesterday, at which they urged him to make arrangements forthwith to issue letters of marque and reprisal under the recent act of Congress. Their arguments arc under stood jto have made a strong impression upon Mr. Lincoln. A contrary view, however, was subsequently urged by Senators who were Erominent in opposition to the passage of the iw. They represented to the President the dangers of a foreign war in case he should do what was asked of him. The subject Is un derstood to have been before the Cabinet at its meeting yesterday. The President indicated at the adjournment of the Senate yesterday that wasnot his fault if Its business was not closed by Saturday next. FROM MURFREESBORO. Important from Gen. Granger’s Column. [Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Muefbeesboeo, March 11,1863. The members of the 17th Indiana mounted infantry, Col. J. T. Wilder, have voted unani mously to arm themselves with heavy rifles at their own expense. The gun and equip ments will cost ea?h man SBS. This comes Qat of sl3 per month. I consider this intelligence of such an ex ample of sacrificing patriotism on the part of our soldiers cheap, even when telegraphing costs six cents per word. Lieutenant Consette of the 123 d Illinois, who deserted his regiment has been brought back in irons, and will be tried by general court martial now In session.

Preston, esq., Agent of the Chicago Board of Trade, with the large contribution of that body in vegetables, for the same destL nation, arrived here safe and in excellent spirits, to-day. They were unable to obtain transportation Immediately for so extensive a cargo, and will have to remain until the au thorities can confiscate or charter a steamer expressly for that purpose. This will prob ably be done to-morrow. The soldiers arc very much In need of fresh vegetables, and no time should be lost in furnishing them with those so kindly sent by the Board of Trade. Col. Treadway, from Wisconsin, with sani tary stores, Is also here, awaiting transporta tion. The steamer Gen.

The report telegraphed from this city,that it was known at the military headquarters that a general uprising of secessionists in Kentucky is now taking place, and pretend ing to give the plan of operations, and that they were armed and equipped, aud had cook ed rations for two weeks, is officially pro nounced a base fabrication, and the military bcadqnarters here has no such information. Tam authorized by Geu/.Wright to say there is nothing of It. Rumors have been in circulation yesterday and to-day, of a desperate fight between the Federal and rebel forces near Mount Sterling, Ky., which reports were broaght by passengers from Paris and Lexington. Gen. Wright has received no information of any snch fight, and discredits the reports. He says there are not over 700 mounted rebels in Kentucky (all home guard guerilla bauds), and that he has a sufficient force pur suing them that will cither capture or dis perse them. Thcrearenootherrebelforccsln Kentucky. I have this from Gen. Wright per sonally to-day. All reports of raids and movements in Kcutucky arc always exagger ated, and should be taken with great caution. FROM LANSING. [Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Lansing, Mich., March 11,15G3. Both houses have passed the resolution to adjourn on the 19th Inst. Rapid progress is being made in dispatching business, and a large number of bills arc being disposed of every day. To day the appropriation bills for the asylums passed both Houses. In the House, the bill extending the time to certain Railroads to comply with the provis ion of certain grants of land to aid in their construction, was defeated. Its fdends k wili make an effort to revive the measure, and yet hope to pass it. The Honsc passed a bill ap propriating SISOO annually for two years, to encourage geological surveys. The Senate has passed the bill to provide for the selection, care, and disposition of lands donated to the State by Congress for the endowment of Colleges, and for the bene fit of agricultural and the mechanic arts. The anti-Adminlstratlon men were again obliged to show their hands to-day in the Senate. The resolutions on the state of the Union, introduced by aFusionist in the House, came up. The Democrats had charged the Republicans with an unwillingness to unite on anything* except partizan resolutions. The sequel put them in a consistent and un comfortable position, for, with a single ex ception, they voted against the resolutions of their Fusion friends. So much for consisten cy. ' Dr. Lappan of the University delivered an able address, to-night, in the hall of the House, upon education. Col.

On Friday night, about midnight, the gun* boats at the mouth of the Yazoo river-heard what was thought to be signal guns from our gunboats coming down the Yazoo. The Ben ton answered by firing two guns. Nothing further had been heard from the boats up the Yazoo when the Lyon left. If the signal was really from the Chilllcothe, as was conjec tured, Yazoo city has already fallen into Fed eral hands. The water was to be let into tbe Vicksburg canal, on Sunday morning. There is no donbt entertained, by those just from there, hut that gunboats will pass through within a week. The Queen of the West had come np again and anchored under the batteries. She flies rebel flags large enough to nearly cover her. When she passed the mouth of the canal she whistled defiance. The fete of the ludianoia Is still involved in doubt. Wo now have a very heavy battery near the lower mouth of the canal. From all persons coming np wo are in sured that the health of the troops Is Improv ing very materially. Coldwatsb River, Mies., Marche I via Cairo, March 10, 1863. ) The expedition has advanced twenty miles since my last report. The country Is entirely destitute of popula tion. Nothing of the slightest importance has oc curred with us yet. We receive nothing in the way of news either from the front or rear. We hope to reach the Tallahatchie to-mor row, when we shall begin to make better pro gress. The rams Lioness and Fulton have Joined us. Indications are that the enemy hos filled the river with timber, mostly sycamore, which, sinking, only obstructs the bottom of the channel. A great rise In the river, caused by cutting the Mississippi levee, enables boats to pass over these obstructions without the slightest trouble. THE YAZOO EXPEDITION. Coldwatek River. Mlsb., March 1, ) Via Cairo, March 10. f The expedition left Moon Lake on Wednes day morning, reaching the end of tho Pass yesterday noon, twelve miles in three days and a half, The bouts are much broken In the light Upper works, but not damaged in the hull or machinery. The most difficult portion of the trip is overcome, and it will be memorable as the grandest achievement of the war. Any one who had seen the Pass before the expedition entered would never have supposed that a fleet of steamers could possibly pass through it. Soldiers and seamen were occupied at every turn, cutting down trees, clearing away rafts and driftwood, and otherwise making the channel water very deep. With a swift current and a course terribly crooked, there was a liability of boats being dashed to pieces against trees at every turn, but all is now safe. We move forward again to-morrow morn ing. A battery is reported at the mouth of the Coldwatcr, twelve miles from here. Everybody is anxious to sec it. The health of the expedition Is excellent. All are in fine spirits and confident. We get all manner of reports of rebel pre parations to receive us, buv they are only the cause of laughter. Lieut. Brown, of the Forest Rose, arrested while lying at Helena, has been reinstated by order of the Admiral. The charges against him were frivolous. He produced written orders for all the transactions upon which his arrest was based. The weather Is very fine in this latitude. The sun shines rather too warm during the day. The water thus fur is good, and we an ticipate but little trouble on this account. As the country is overflowed with recent rains, it will not become stagnant for some weeks yet. Licnt. ComiuanderSmlth and Gen. Ross are making arrangements to keep communication open with the rear. Smith promises to patrol the streams with gunboats as high up as the pass and as low down as we go, if the army will furnish transports to run between us and- Helena. The arrangement will probably be made. FROM MEMPHIS. . [Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.! Memphis, March 9, [ via.

After uninterestingproccedings, the Senate went into executive session. Concord, N. H., March 11.—The election is still very close; if Judge Eastman is not elected by a majorpy of votes, he will only want a few hundred. His plurality over QU moro will be from 4,000 to 5,000. In the Ist Congressional district it is proba ble that Marcy,Democrat, is elected by from 200 to 800 majority. It will be necessary to have the official account to decide the 2d and 3d districts. In the House the Republicans will have nearly as large a majority as last year. The Senate stands six and six; perhaps the oppo sition to the Democratic party may have 'se cured seven or eight of the twelve members. .Concord, March 11.— Returns from about towns give Gilmore 24,851; Eastman, 25,722; Harman, 3,573. These returns indi cate that there is no election of Governor by the people. The Republicans will have a ma jority in the Governor’s Council in tho Senate and House of Representatives. It is believed that all the Republican candidates for Con gress are elected. The majorities in the Ist and 2d districts will be small New York, March 11. —The steamer City of Baltimore arrived to-night, from Liverpool February 25th, and Queenstown 2Cth. Washington’s birth-day was celebrated by a banquet at St. James’ Hall. Mr. Adams re plied to the toast “The Union,” principally extolling Washington. .He claimed that henceforth the memoryof Washington must be kept in reverence exclusively by loyal Americans. Messrs. Cunningham and White spoke de nouncing slavery os the came of the war, and in terms of sympathy with theNor-h. Tbe Times announces that the Confederate three million sterling was taken by Earlinger & Co., of Paris and Frankfort. The relief ship Achilles, from Philadelphia reached Liverpool on the 22d. A monster meeting at Manchester adopted an address of thanks to America, and presented it to the officers of the Gcoige Griswold withimmense enthusiasm. In the House of Lords, at tbe request of Lord Russell, the motion for a correspon dence with tne Confederate Commissioners relative to recognition was postponed till March 2d. Palmerston denounced strongly the ship ment of negroes by France from Egypt to Mexico, ana called upon France to repair the wrong. Palmerston, in reply to an inquiry, said that the only official document of the British Government relative to French medi lion schemes, was Russell's letter of the 13th of November, already published. He could give no information as to the reply of Ameri ca to*Napolcon's last proposition. It was a matter entirely between those two Govern ments. The Polish question attracts great atten tion. Insurrectionary movements continue. France takes verv decided ground against the intervention of Prussia and in Ctvor of con cession to the Poles. The Constitutional, which is regarded as Napoleon's mouth piece, publishes a warning, U not a menacing, arti cle towards the Ring of Prussia. There were rumors In Paris ot an alliance between England, France, and Austria to obtain a so lution of the Polish question. By Telegraph.] [Per City or Baltimore.

In the Assembly Mr. Bates offered a resolu tion directing the sale of the gold in the State Treasury at not less than fifty per cent, prem ium. Several unimportant bills were introduced. There was some discussion on the bill making a small appropriation to Col. J. B. Moore, late Sheriff of Grant county, for watching the destination of certain powder from the PlattevlUe mills, wrongly suspected of being sent to the rebels, which expense was incurred by order of Gov. Randall, on the suggestion of the United States Marshall. The bill passed by a party vote. Some debate took place on Hyer’s anti tarifi memorial, claiming that the West was unduly taxed for the benefit of the Eastern States. A motion to table was lost by a close vote. The subject was postponed one week- Bills were passed extending the charter of the Wisconsin Central Railroad; also to annexa part of Dallas to Polk county; also to extend for three years the time of .paying the princL pal on school and university lands purchased prior to 1850.
