In spite of the had news from New
Tork City, loyal men have* very reason to
Ttgoice. One by one, the rebel strongholds
are giving way. Prentiss has crushed the
A T-frflnßflfl rebels. Vicksburg has fallen,
and to-day, our victorious army have pass

the Father of "Waters is once more open.
Xtosecrans is pursuing the flying remnant
of Bragg's army, and Lee has retreated*in
disorder. The skies are bright, and the
old ship is weathering the breakers. The
brutal mob of fiends in New York must
soon he quelled, and their devilish work of
rapine, pillage, incendiarism and murder,
ended by a swift and summary punish
ment Courage, every man. Have faith
in the cause of Freedom yet
The teachings ot the bad and mischievous
faction, that from the beginning of tins
war have done all they could to embarrass
the Government, and strengthen the rebell
ion, are producing their necessaiy and le
gitimate results. The demagogues and
traitors at the North, have been long busy
in sowing broadcast principles of resist
ance to tbc constituted authorities, and the
right to oppose their just supremacy; vile
charges that the Government proposed to
overthrow the liberty of the people, and to
erect a military despotism on the ruins;
false and wicked imputations against the
integrity and patriotism of our rulers, and
proclaiming the botmden duty of citizens
to rise up against the encroachments of the
Administration, and strike down the tyrant
and his minions. All who are familiar with
the sentiments uttered, and principles set
forth, by the Copperhead faction, through
its press, its public speakers, and the reso"
lutions of its conventions, know that the
direct tendency has been to incite the igno
rant and misguided to mobs, riots, and rev
olutions. The ground was well broken np
by these skillful growers of insurrection
and sedition, the seed was planted with
choice and care, it has been faithfully
watched and watered, and both they and
we should have been disappointed if it had
not sprung up at last and home the deadly
fruits it has. You cannot gather grapes of
thorns; and unless the evil tree Is hewn
down in time, and cast out, it will bring
forth evil fruit.
There was an attempt made to dint up
the foul mouths of these spouters of sedi
tion, and stop the engines of rebellion, that
were scattering wide through the land the
envenomed issues of treason, poisoning all
loyal sentiment, and paralyzing all loyal
effort, but the attempt was successfully
thwarted, and we have the inevitable re
sults now in murdered citizens, burning
homes, terror, bloodshed, and anarchy. Is
there a man who doubts that if the persis
tent teachings of that chief of demagogues
Eemando Wood, and his agents in New
York and elsewhere, had been forbidden
and suppressed, that at least one mighty
cause of the present fearful scenes of riot
and horror in that city would have been re
moved f in* o does no * know that all his ef
forts before the public and those of his fol
lowers from the fall ot Sumter till the mob
broke out in New York, have had the direct
tendency to produce just this state of things;
and if these consequences of violence and
blood had not followed, it would only be
because the diligent use of the means did
not bring about the usual results? They
sowed the seed, and tbe loyal people of
New York are now reaping the fruits in
murders, burnings, pillage, and all devas
tation and terror. The liberty of speech
is a glorious privilege, but it does not mean
that liberty which causes anarchy and
bloodshed. The freedom ot the press
is a precious right and inheritance
of hut it is not the
freedom to murder good men and women,
bang up loyal soldiers to lamp posts, strike
down and trample the life out of the inno
sooent and law-abiding, and give up
houses and blocks to pillage and the
flames. This is tbe liberty of speech that
Eemando "Wood, Vallandigham and their
followers have fostered. Tins is the free
dom of the Press that their oigans have
been using. The bloodshed, outrage, and
horror that they have brought about will,
we trust, open the eyes of some that have
been too long blind; and rouse the people
everywhere to put an end, at once and
forever, to the efforts of all demagogues
and villlans, and traitors and their sympa
thizers in in our midst, to organize insur
rection and conflict at the North, and
bring bloodshed and strife into our very
streets and homes.
There is good reason to bdievo that this
threatened resistance to the draft is incited
and set going by the sneaking agents ot
rebellion, ■who are working everywhere,
openly when they dare, and secretly when
they most, to divide and distract the
Utarth, and so bring about that state of
wax here which is now the last and sole
hope of Secession. It is the saddest thing
we know in this glorious struggle of the
free Xorth against banded slaveholders
who seek to destroy the Union and the
country, that there are men among us so
lost to every noble impulse and patriotic
feeling, that they will strike hands with
traitors, and raise up and urge on mobs of
outcasts and desperadoes to rob, hang and
slaughter tlior own brethren and neigh
bors; and give their homes and posses
sions to pillage and the torch—if so doing
they cun help the cause of treason, and
make rebellion triumphant But by all
this, loyal and true men will neither be cast
down nor disheartened; they will sum
mon up new resolution, greater vigilance,
and more unflinching courage; and cany
the country and the cause safely through,
in spite of both open traitors in the field,
and secret traitors in their own homes and
streets. This country will neither bo giv
en up to mobs nor to slavery. They can
not conquer, cither when they fight separ
ately or fight together. This new combi
' nation, cannot win. Eng mob 'can no
more save the rebellion than Eng Cotton.
For two years and a half, or since
Goy. Pettus, of Mississippi, ordered steam
ers to be stopped at Vicksburg, the Missis
sippi has been dosed. The 12th of Jan
uary,TßCl, when that infamous order was
first executed, will ever be a memorable
day in the history of the nation. Port
Hudson, it is now certain,has sturendcred,
thus opening this magnificent artery of
commerce from the Falls of St Anthony
to the Gulf of Mexico. It has been a long
and crushing embargo upon the commerce
of the great Talley. Now that unflinch
ing "Western yalor has removed it, the na.
lion will rejoice and take courage.
It may, and probably will take months
for commerce, to any considerable extent,
to seek its former channels. Capital is
proverbially timid and cautious, and the
fear of piratical guerillas may delay any
considerable adventures; but wo look for
a rapid and healthy revival of trade be
tween the Ohio andthc Upper Mississippi
and New Orleans. BL Louis, taught by the
stem lessons of Copperhead experience, is
now one of the most intensdy loyal cities
upon the Continent, and commerce will"
very soon drive out whatever of traitor
ous sentiment there may be in New Or
leans and the other cities upon the Miss*
issippl. The rebellion in the Southwest

England, the most stubborn and
conservative of all the so-called liberal
countries on the other ride, is undergoing
great and radical changes, the importance
of which it is hard for an American to es
timate. No body would have believed it
possible twenty years ago, or even ten
years, that any fundamental reformation
could have taken place in the constitution
of the National Church. of that country,
and especially that It could have
been brought about by the remon
strances of dissenters, and the tender
scruples of candidates for Holy Orders,
Such, however, is very likely to be the
case—so likely that we might in truth and
justice, assume that it has actually been
accomplished. For many years the more
pious and conscientious, members of the
established church, who designed to take
upon themselves the office, and junctions
of .the priesthood, have not at all relished
the compulsory swallowing of the Thirty
Nine Articles, winch the church ordains
and makes, in their case, a sine qua
non, They have thought, and still
think, that it is too large a subscription
for any Christian minister to enter into;
that it is a harrier to free thought and dis
cussion, and tends to cramp and dwarf the
mind. Besides this, some of the doctrines
contained in these articles, are of such a
nature that those who do swear to them—
that is to say, those who swear they bcliece
them in toto —have to take the oath with
certain mental reservations, which are not
the best starting ground for a minister of
the truth, the whole truth, and nothing hut
the truth. Hence these articles havq be
come obnoxious, and many God-fearing
men, high dignitaries of the Church, are
opposed to them, while others think the
time has come for a reconsideration, per
haps for an alteration and reconstruction of
the whole programme.
That such, a thing could really happen
in England, makes any, the most mon
strous, miracle in this day possible I It
would have been easier, one would *Mnb t
knowing the character of the Episcopalian
people, and their almost idolatrous wor
ship of the credos and ritual of the Church,
to have established a Republic in the
proud little isle, than to have changed
even the letter, to say nothing about the
spirit, of the old, venerable and sacred
organon upon which i£ is founded. It
appears, however, that nothing is too
sacred for the devouring tooth of innova
tion, and it is amazing how rapidly the
thoughts of the martys develop themselves
into regularly organized institutions. Have
a care—all whom it may concern—
have a cate of new ideas! They
grow fester than their opponents like—
grow whilst men arc asleep—and on the
morrow they wake up, and find, it may bo

ly dissenters were fined, and imprisoned in
England, for doubting the infallibility of
the Chnrcb, and preaching against her doc

dained, to preach in a church pulpit; and
a poor Methodist, preaching without a li
cense, was liable to fine and incarceration*
To-day, a change is passing over that
proud dream of spiritual superiority. Once,
and not along ago either, it was heretical
to speak against the Church at all, in any
way, and the speaker was liable to behand
ed over to the tender mercies of the Eccle
siastical Court. 'Witness John Bunyan,
George Eos, and a host of others. Now,

consciences of candidates for the min
Such a debate took place during last
month in the House of Commons on the
motion of Mr. Buxton to abrogate the test
of the Thirty-nine Articles. This gentle
man argued that the absolute requirement
from candidates for ordination, of the sub
scription to the Thirty-nine Articles and the
Book of Common Prayer (which to a
churchman is as sacred as the Bible) tended
to keep young University men out of the
Church. And this daring revolutionaiy
proposition was not met with violent de
nunciations, either by the Government or
the high Churdi party in the House, but
was calmly debated, and the condusion
come to was that a revision was advisable.
Freemasonry in France*
Freemasonry in France—at least the Grand
Orient or Scotch rite—seems menaced with
ruin. The Government has determined to
change the character of the institution, and to
make it as completely and servilely a depend
ent as any political charitable association.
The appointment by the Government of all
the officers cf lodges, from the Most "Wor
shipful to the Tiler, is a measure utterly sub
versive of all the canons of masonry. The
Government is persevering with pertinacity
In those measures, but the majority of Ma
sons arc determined to resist them. If they
foil in their efforts, they will leave the Grand
Orient and join the Eoyal York lodges, which
are the most prosperous lodges there, and
which keep the Government from interfering
n any way with them. These discussions ex
cite a great deal of feeling throughout France,
and may tell seriously against the Government
In the impending election.
Catholic Priests on tltc Draft.
The Pittsburg Dvpateh of the 14th says:
“At ft meeting held in St. Paul’s Cathedral,
on Sunday afternoon, the sum of SI,OOO was
raised for the purpose of procuring exemption
for Revs. Hickey, Burke and Holland, Cath
olic clergymen, who had been drafted in
city. Bev. Father that what
ever opinion might be entertained in regard
to the non-exemption of clergymen from the
draft, it was the law. He believed that the
draft was conducted in a just and honorable
manner, and that it was our duty to give a
•willing support to the Government both In
men and money.. But the laws of the Cath
olic Church forbid their clergy taking up
arms in defense of any Government, and if
they did so, they would bo incapacitatedfrom
exercising the duties of the priesthood.’*
Confiscation of the Gen. Price
The property of the rebel General Price,
personal and real, has been confiscated by
United States Marshal Thomas B. Wallace, of
Lexington, Mo. Clalb Jackson's property is
hot subject to confiscation. His fortunate
demise will secure to his afflicted family all
of his personal and real effects, and as ho
married three times successively into a “rich
hut respectable family,” his estate amounts
to something considerable.
Tux Kansas Aobicultural College.—
The Blue Mount College Association of Kan
sas have given that State twenty thousand
dollars' worth of property—a hundred acres
of land and a fine College building with li
brary and apparatus. This gift completes the
bargain by which this becomes the Agricultu
ral College of the State of Kansas, endowed
with 90,000 acres of land, most of which is
already selected by the Commissioners ap
pointed for that purpose. Kansas Is the first
State to pnt into operation a College thus en

a year ego.

TcLLAHOrjL, July 7,1663. J
Glory enough! The army of the Cumber
land rejoices over the splendid achievements
of its sister organizations at the JDast and
Southwest The Major General got dispatches
to-day from Secretary Stanton, announcing
the glorious victories In Pennsylvania and at
Vicksburg, which were indeed good tidings
of great joy to the army. Orders for a salute
were quickly issued, and the boom of cannon
and the shout of many thousand voices, rent
the air in glad acclaim. Not aman but whose
countenance bore the impress of complete
satisfaction—a joy that seemed to speak with
Simeon of old, “Lord, now lettest thy ser
vant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen
thy salvation, which thou hast prepared be
fore the Dace ot all people.**
The army yet awaits the arrival of supplies,
which for days havebeen floundering through
the vast seas of mud between here and Dock
river. It Is a fact that mules are literally eu
gulphed in many of the sink holes that line
the roads of these barrens, and hundreds have
already perished through the terrible hard
ships of the trips.
Some three zimea north of place, a por
tion of the road has at length become abso
lutely impassable, forcing trains to a dead
halt, and heavy details of men are now at
work bridging the place. In the meantime,
many of the different commands having this
day Issued their last pound of bread, will
have to march to the wagons for their to
morrow’s supply. This is getting upon pret
ty short commons for a great army, but one.
of the unavoidable attendants of rapid march
ing is bod weather.' And this shortness of
supply will indicate the main difficulty with
which, from now on, as it advances Into the
enemy’s country, this army has to contend.
Yet an impatient people is even now, per
haps, wondering that the army of the Cum
berland is not already upon the mountain’s
summit, thundering at the fortifications of
The trouble, however, will soon cease, for
within twelve hours, if the positive assurance
of those having in charge the rebuilding of
the railroad is to be jelled upon, the cars will
be here from Murfreesboro. Supplies to full
ness will be then crowded down, and within
a fortnight after, the army will be in condi
tion lor the second chapter of its grand stra
tegic move. I have information from Cowan,
dated the evening of the sth, up to which
time the infantry force of that advance had
made no demonstrations.
From memoranda received of Watkins* cav
alry fight, I find that my yesterday's version
of the affair was not altogether accurate. It
seem? that the sth and 6ih Kentucky, under
Col. Watkins, made an early start for a re*
connolseance, and when well up the
mountain met and engaged a deta«hment of
Wharton’s rebel cavalry. The enemy was
steadily driven across the a
most rugged road, to •within sight of Univer
sity—a railroad station npon the other side.
Aebel inCmtiy was then encountered in suffi
cient force to check the pursuit
The list of casualties forwarded me docs not
at all agree with my yesterday’s statement,
which was founded, however, upon rumor—
that uncertain authority upon which most
human testimony rests. The following is
forwarded as an accurate list:
C tk Kentucky. —Killed—Lleat. Wm. Murphy,
Wounded—Lieut. Kimbro, Blight; Privates Joseph
Reynolds, Blight; Robert Anderson, slight: Benj.
Few. bad; Abram Rhodes, slight; Wade W. Cook,
hth Kentucky. —Wounded—Privates J. K. Hold
en, slight; J. P. Gaxnblin, do; C. C. Parks, do:
Bartley Kelley, do; A. B. Christy do.
So it turns out that instead of fifteen killed
and ten wounded, according to yesterday’s
rumor, the regiments really hadbut one killed,
while twelve were wounded.
A private by the name of Thomas Stcln
hausen, in a fit of madness, cut Ms throat on
the 4th of July- He made a bad job of it,
however, and is likely to recover. Stelnhau
stn was a member of theSSlh, and from the
city of Chicago.
The men ot the BSth are In first class order,
by tbe by, standing sentinel at the foot of tbe
Ctamberlauds. During all the toilsome march
fu-zn Murfreesboro to Cowan, though fre
quently in the front and skirmishing with the
enemy, not a man of the regiment was hurt.
In one cf my letters, I remember to hare
made brief mention of the second day’s fight
ai Liberty Gap, giving what casualties I had
at the time obtained. Tbe affair was without
question one of the most spirited engage-
Hunts of the campaign, and I propose
again refer to it. The enemy, as will be re
membered, bad been driven, on the evening
of the 24*h, by tbe irresistible advance
of 'Willlcb’a brigade, costing quite a number
killed and wounded—chiefly in tbe 49th Ohio.
Tbe night of the 24th, the picket Une was
held by the 89th Illinois and the 33d Indiana,
which two regiments received the rebel attack
on tbe morning cf the 25th—the second day.
I sent yon a list of the casualties In the S’JUi,
of itself abundant proof of the determination
of tho enemy’* assault. Xj doll's Arkansas

of the enemy’s dead lay la front of the posi

closely as twenty yards. Capt. Kidders com
pany killed seven and afield officer a; one
volley. Opposite Capt. Konell’s company,
twenty-seven dead rebels were found. ‘•Farq.”

work in approved style, thinks tho regiment
“went through hell’s own fire.”
The fwhole ot "Willich's brigade had of
course, in the meantime, moved to the sup
port of the advance, sharing the perils and
achievements of the afternoon. About 4
o'clock, the 2d brigade of the division, com
manded by the brave Coh John F. Miller,
came to the relief of Willlch’s troops, who,
exhausted by the afternoon's bard fighting,
and upon the last round of ammunition, were
ready for withdrawal. The relieving brigade
came steadily up, passing the outer line of
battle, and engaged the enemy at close quar
ters. lam unable to state the particular part
taken by each regiment in CoL Miller’s com
mand. I know that tbe whole did nobly, giv
ing the rebels the severest punishment, and
that the enemy was forced from Ms positions.

The 79th was commanded by CoL Buckner,
and went.lnto the tight in immediate conncc

regiments marched In line of battle directly
into the enemy’s fire, gaining an orchard
fence before delivering a shot. A few mo*
ments in this position, however, demonstra
ted the enemy’s advantage, for his shots

then ordered, the column striking across an
open field tor the obtainKCotofa new posi

cn the men executing this movement,
which knocked a goodly number to
the ground. But the point once gained put a
new color on matters, giving the federal fire
such an advantage that a half hour’s work si
lenced the enemy’s guns. Officers and men
of the two regiments made a gallant record for
themselves, standing nobly 10 the work,amid

TULLAHO XA, July 9,1853, f
Three heavily laden trains of cars arrived
last night, bearing provender for the hungry
tbouEands of this army. Ton may believe
that the Eonnd of the locomotive whistle sent
a thrill of joy through the camps. The con
dition of the army had begun, indeed, to
wear a serious aspect. To my certain know
ledge, many commands were upon an allow
ance of one cracker per day to each man, and
the non-arrival of the cars, and the impassa
ble condition of the roads, were adding on
anxiety for the future to the troubles of the
present. The sky dears now, however, for
with the establishment of railroad communi
cation, all difficulty in regard to supplies
One of the trains In laet night passed di
rectly through to Elk River, carrying rations
sufficient for the present relief of the front
divisions. The various division headquarters
lie within a few hours drive of the river, so
that without the Elk River bridge—which
will require yet ten or twelve days to re
■build—railroad communication may be said
to be opened to the army of the Cumberland.
And now begins the preparation for our next
—almost Immediate—campaign. Supplies will
be rushed forward, and a depot established,
upon which, in case of a severance of the line
between here and Murfreesboro, the army
may depend. This, indeed, is the only thing
that holds the army still from a movement.
The country may depend upon it, there will
be no settling into quarters, as at Murfrees

I have news from Sheridan up to the 7th,
when the division still occupied the vicinity
of Cowan. The day before Sherman’s BStu
111. asd McCreary’s Slst Mich, moved up the
mountain, as a support for Watkins’ cavalry
brigade, which crossed to the Tennessee on a
rt-connoigsance. Col. Watkin’s moved some
fifteen miles to the front, demonstrating the
total withdrawal of the enemy beyond the
Tennessee river. Bragg crossed his Last trains
on the afternoon of the Cth, and immediately
destroyed the magnificent railroad bridge
vihiuh spans the river a* that point. Scouts
since report that the Bridgeport fortifications
Were also destroyed, the enemy concentrating
at Chattanooga, which indicates to my mind
an intention upon the part of the rebels to
abandon the line of the Tennessee.
' There are no fortifications at Chattanooga,
and the concentration of the rebel
army at that point, can only mean the selec
tion of good ground from which to watch
the approach of Rosecrans, and upon the
many railroads diverging from which, an ex
peditions and safe retreat can be effected.
. The glorious news for tbo Union, which

[from theN. T. Evening Post, 13th.]
The draft was recommenced this morning
at the headquarters of the Ninth Congres
sional district corner of Third avenue and
Forty-sixth street. The wheel had been re
volving about twenty minutes when the buil
ding In which the officer wa& was attacked by
a mob armed with clubs, stones, brickbats
and like .missiles, but no fire-arms. The
bnlldirg, a four story brick house, tbe upper
stories of which were occupied by families,
was defaced, the windows broken, doors
smashed and furniture destroyed.
Tbe mob rushed into the enrolling office,
seized all tbe machinery and papers, records,
lists, «Sc,, of tbe officers, except those con
tained in a large safe.
The building was then set on fire, and at
eleven o’clock was in flames, with every pros
pect that the block of which It forms part
will be burned down. This done, the mob
proceeded to destroy the police telegraph in
Third avenue, by cutting down the poles and
carrying off the wlr*.
One of the draft officers was set upon with
stones and clubs, and is so much Injured that
he will probably lose his life. Several other
persons were injured, hut not seriously. The
mob, which numbered some three or four
hundred active and determined rioters, ac
companied by a vast crowd of excited people,
next proceeded to* other parts of the city, ex
pressing a determination to destroy every
building In which tbe draft or enrollment
offices arc situated, and especially the office

At 10 o'clock, however, although orders had
been given to the military and to the police
of the different wards, no assistance had ar

Provost Mai ehal at that hoar decided to com

placed upon the table; the blindfolded man

wheel woe ready to perform bis duty, and the
Fiovost Marshal announced that the draft in
the Twenty-second ward, which was begun on
Saturday, would then be concluded. The
wheel began to revolve amid the somewhat
excited demonstration of the crowd of spec
tators (numbering from one to two hundred
persons); and the draft proceeded for about
twenty minutes, when the more formidable
riot took place.
This morning some of the laborers employ
ed by two or three of the railroad companies
sod m some of the foundries, assisted by a
gang of desperate men, went to different
establishments in the upper wards where
large numbers of workmen are employed, and
compelled them, by threats In some Instances,
to cease their work. The rioters thus gained
large accessions of strength, and marched
through the sheets yelling and threatening,
and brandishing their clubs and other wea
At twenty minntes past 10 o'clock the
crowd marched down Third arenue and
congregated opposite the enrolling office.
' Meanwhile, the draft was proceeding;
though, when the rioters had taken their po
sition in front of the building the operations
of the officers were interrupted by the noise

building, who soon afterwards took their po-
H ions with the principal rioters in the
The first demonstration of violence was
made Immediately thereafter. A volley of
stones crashed through the open doors and
large windows of the enrolling office (which
had been constructed for a store on the first
floor of the building). One or two persons
inside the office were struck by stones,-and
other persons—among whom were the Pro
vost Marshal, who bad maintained his posi
tion on the table where the wheel stood, and
the commissioner, surgeon and other officers
of the draft, including Deputy Provost Mar
shal VandcrpoeX and the reporters for the
newspapers—at once made their escape from
the room to other parts of the building and
to the rear. The Provost Marshal, who would
probably havo been murdered if caught,
was assisted over the wall of the back yard.
'When the room had been cleared tho rioters
approached with their clubs and with their
Lands full of stones and bricks, and began to
destroy tho windows which had escaped tho
previous volley.
When, however, some of tho more excited
persons in the crowd had entered the office
and begun the work of demolishing the ma
chinery of the draft and tho furniture in the
room, the building was occupied by very
largo numbers, who seized upon tho lists,
records, blanks, and the great books in which
the names of tho dratted men were to bo en
grossed, bore them into tho streets with loud
demonstrations, tore them Into fragments,
and scattered them over the neighborhood.
For many rods above and below the building,
and iu Forty-sixth street, the ground was al
most covered with the blanks and the other
. Everything In the enrolling office was ut
terly destroyed, except the large safe which
was understood to contain the record of the
men drafted on Saturday, and which the mob
could not open.
The men were excited beyond description,
and endeavored to pound down the supports
of the building with sticks of timber.
Shortly after this destruction, smoko Issued
from the rear of the room, and a great shout
was raised by the crowd when they eaw that
the building was on fire.
They then shook hands with each other and
gave various indications of unbounded do
The fire burned slowly, but when it reached
the second story the demonstrations of the
crowd were renewed with greater intensity,
and violence was freely threatened against

manner connected with the draft.
It was understood that some of tho enroll
ing officers were in the upper part of tho
building, and though several families of wo
men and children occupied that part, stones
and other missiles were thrown through tho
While tho building was burning the crowd
discovered tho side door and attempted to
enter. Those at the door called vociferously
to their companions to follow, and rushed up
the stairs. But few, however, wore permitted
to ascend; the police assuring them that none
but women and children were there.

all were drawn up in Forty-sixth street, a lew

Important Bclmto on the Recognition
ol tbo Confederate States.
[By the Mails of the Great Eastern.)
In the House of Commons on Juno 80, Mr.
Roebuck rose to move his motion with respect
to recognition of the Confederates. He said
he well knew the importance of the motion,
and tbe obloquy to which he was exposing
himself, for he was acting against those who
considered themselves the tail of tbe earth,
and no one had a right to discuss question or
conduct. In spite of this ho adopted this
course, because ho believed it was for the
honor and interest ol this country, and he
therefore appealed to the honor and impar
tiality of the House to support this motion
for negotiations, with a view to the recogni
tion of the Confederate States. Some eighty
years ago the American colonies revolted,
they were related by a narrow-minded King,
but they succeeded in establishing their inde
These, then, established two doctrines of
international lew—first, the right ot rebellion
or secession; second, the right of foreign
governments to acknowledge revolted States
ns waa done by Franco. They were at any
rate bound, by these doctrines. Ho then
sketched tiio progress of secession, which
Union writers had persuaded Europe was
caused by slavery. Ho praised highly the
courage and virtue of the South, and de
nounced tba anti-slavery of the North as hy
pocrisy, lor they would rivet slavery to-mor
row on the necks of the blacks if- the South
would come back, but they would not, and
he rejoiced to think so. Their prosperity bod
been such, that if things had gone on a* they
were, they would have been the bullies of the
world, which they would have bestridden
like a Collossus, while we, potty men crept
between Us legs, scarce deeming our souls
our own.
The next question was, had the time ar
rived f Then the South offered a boon sach
as the world had never known, bat it was
driven now to manufacture for itself. It
would soon me its cotton and create interests
which U would have to protect when tbe war
sensed. He explained that with 31r. Lindsay
he had gone to tne Emperor ofthe French to
clear up the reports spread by Government,
which would spread any reports to suit Us
purpose. He was told that the Emperor had
changed his mind, bat all be could say, and
he pledged bis word for it, was that the Em
peror had authorized him to say in the House
of Commons that he bad intrusted Baron
Gros to propose negotiations to tbe English
The Emperor alio complained that his Con
federate Commission to the English Govern
ment with reaped to a mediation lost au
tumn, had been shown to Mr. Seward, but
sUted that he desired to act with England in
all things, and especially with reap set to
America. The Emperor also sold that ho
fr ared for the state of his manufacturing dis
tricts next winter, and in his (Mr. Roebuck's)
opinion It was the duty of the English Gov
ernment to show some consideration for the
suffering districts of England. In conclu
sion, be moved that an humble petition be
presented to Her Majesty, praying that she
will be graciously pleased to enter into nego
tiations with the great powers of Europe lor
the purpose ot obtaining their co-operation
in the recognition of the independence of the
Confederate States of America.
Lord R. Montague moved, as an amend
ment, that this Homo earnestly desire that
the Impartial neutrality should continue to
be maintained by Her Majesty's Government
during tbo present unhappy contest in the
States of North America. He yielded to no
man in sympathy and admiration for the
booth, but they were now on the point of
working out their independence, and they
ought not to be interfered with. Ho also ob
jected to any intervention. The offer of it
was not likely to bo acceptable to either side,
and while it could lead to no good, might in
volve serious difficulties.
Mr. Clifford seconded the amendment.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer said it
was the duty of every responsible adviser of
the crown to divest'himself of partiality in
considering such a question as this, and to
regard facts alone in forming a calm and de
liberate judgmjpt. Few who had observed
the heroic deeds of the South could withhold
that sympathy; but on the other hand, the
noble lord conceived visions of extended do
minion to which they clung with pardonable
tenacity. Such a question as this must be
argued, not as the basis of British interests,
or that British Interests were threatened by
tho nrospccts of the American Union. He
believed that the policy of strict neutrality
and non-intervention was the only one that
would have been approved by the country,
and in the spirit of that policy Government
still desired to act.
• He did not bellovo that the restoration of
Ihc Union was attainable, and (his was the
general opinion of the country, regarded in
the light that there could ba no doubt of the
issue. No practical benefit could result from
recognition at present. There was no case in
which such a recognition bad taken place
without being followed by war, and admitting
the evils of mo war, they must take care that
In remedying one evil they did not Ml into a
greater. A recognition would deprive this
country of the character and weight of im
pel Unlity. When a time for intervention did
active this country had many traditional re
lations and-interests. France, by her action
lu Mexico, bad engagements which prevented
her recognition of the South without incur
ring a taunt of impartiality or sell-interest fa
tal to their interest and authority.
Traditionally and naturally Amerlcaaffected
to be independent of European opinion; bat
they bad more faith in the gentle act of that
opinion than In diplomatic acts, but octlou
would be destroyed by a recognition of the
South. It would also rouse in the North that
spirit of patriotic resistance which bad hith
erto been the great secret of Southern success
and Northern inferiority, and it would cheek
any reaction that might be going on in the
minds of Ameiic&n citizens in favor of peace.
For these reasons he trusted the House would
support the Government in resisting the mo
Mr. Forster referred to the declaration of
Earl Bussell, in another place, contradicting
the statements of Mr. Roebuck, With re
spect to the views of the Emperor of the
French, he believed that the country had seen
rnongh of diplomatic action on such ques
tions with the Emperor of the French. In
conjunction with the Emperor of the French
we had drifted into the Crimean war—-there
were serlons fears abroad lest we might drift
into a war in conjunction with him on account
of Poland, but there was no doubt, if the
House allowed the Emperor of the French to
use Mr. Roebuck as bis second ambassador to
sound his opinionsagaiusttheGovernment of
the day, we should soon drift into a war with
America. He combatted the opinions of Mr.
Roebuck, and showed that the proposals for
mediation last autnm had led to the conscrip
tion act, and maintained that the motion, if
carried, would render peace between the
North and the South Impossible, and would
Inevitably involve us in the war.
Lord R. Cecil supported the motion,which,
if carried, would, in his opinion, have a great
moral effect upon tho duration of the war.
It was in vain to suppose tho North could
conquer the South, and, therefore, the con
tinuance of hostilities was a gigantic crime.
The English Government was now the solo
obstacle to the recognition ot the South, and
as such it was responsible to England and to
every one.
Mr. Bright said that the honorable member
for Sheffield had left them iu no manner of
doubt as to his object, which, when his re
cent character and recent speeches were con
sidered, was the same as if ho hod asked the
Souse to address tho Grown and declare war
against tho United states. Tho Chancellor
of the Exchequer, who was not very warm on
this subject, was obliged to charge him with
bitter hostility.
The honorable gentleman told them that
the North was overbearing, but ho did not
tell them its Government nod hitherto been
-administered by his friends of the South. He
told them that the South were English, but
not the scum of Europe. He had detailed
a conversation with the Emperor of
the French, and asked them to follow his lead
In the greatest question ever submitted to
that House. There was atiroe whenthehon
orable member held very different language.
II e said he had no faith m the Emperor of the
French, and he looked for nothing but enmity
and bad faith from him. [Cheers]. He had,
however, adopted the character of Tear ’em,
and was at his post. He then exclaimed
against his perjured Ups having touched the
hallowed cheek of our beloved Queen.
[Cheers ]
But now he had been to Paris, and became a
conspirator with the Emperor, to draw this
conntiy into a policy hostile to its interests
and degrading to its honor. Looking at the
position of the Emperor in Borne, which be
held in Opposition to the desire of all Italy:
to bis policy in Mexico, Cochin China and
Japan, where every step was marked with
bloodshed, devastation, he saw the ambition
Louis XIV. and the grasp of the first of his
name, but there was still reason to suppose
he might at least be swamped in the vaatness
of his designs. The Honorable member then
proceeded to defend the policy of the North,
end expressed his .opinion that Slavery was
doomed, and the restoration of the Union
not impossible. He would suppose that It
was possible the Union would be restored
on the basis of the South, although he did
not believe it, lor he had faith in the moral
government of the world. The United States
could with their army and navy and vast re*
sources, drive us out of Canada and the West
He condemned in strong terms the policy
and objects of the Southern seceded States,
and spoke of the North os the organized
defender of liberty, freedom and equality.
Yet, it was in sueh a cause, and against such
& Government Mr. Roebuck, who professed to
be more English than most Englishmen,
asked the House to throw its weight and hos
tility into the scale. A war with the United
States would be a war on the ocean, and every
thing belonging to both countries would be
swept from the seas. When the trouble in
America was over, whether the Union was re
stored or not, it would leave a wound in the
hearts of the most instructed and the wealth
iest people on earth, which a century would
not heal; but ho prayed the Great Arbitrator
of events would never penult this country to
commit the most stupendous act of guilt
ever recorded in the annals of the world.
Mr. Wyndham moved the adjournment of
tho debate.
Sir 6. Grey laid ho ■would not now notice
the extraordinary conduct of Mr. Roebuck In
constituting himself on envoy to the Emperor
of the French, although bucu conduct was a
violation of all confidence and official courte
sy. He repeated the declarations of Earl
Russell in the House of Lords, and expressed
his inability to reconcile them with the state
ment of Mr. Roebuck. Ab to his personal
knowledge of the views of the French, they
were totally at variance with the information
possessed by the Foreign Office. He utterly
deified that there was the slightest ground lor
the complaint that confidential communica
tions of the Emperor had been submitted to
the Federal Government: such a charge was
preposterous, and Mr. Roebuck must have
misnndeistood the Emperor, who has always
expressed his satisfaction at the manner in
which his views had been considered by her
Majesty’s Government.
The debate was then adjourned.
The other orders was disposed of, and the
House rose.
Arrest of an Alleged Agent for
ilic Southern Confederacy.
[From the Now York World, 13tU.]
A Southern gentleman named John Moore,
who had been boarding at the Plerrepont
House, in Montague street, Brooklyn, with
hie wife and daughter, for the past two
mouths, was induced to leave the hotel on
Thursday night to go to New York by a man
known as CoL Sherman, and since ascertain
ed to bo a Government detective. Alter
reaching the other side, he was conveyed to
Jersey City, and it is believed sent on to
Washington. The charges against him, if any,
have not been divulged. The circumstances
ofthe abduction appear to bo these: Sher
man made frequent visits to the Plerrepont
House since Mr. 3fooro came there, ana be
came very Intimate with him, and it is sup
posed that he obtained sufficient information
to warrant his arrest. Sherman went by the
name of Jones during this time. He not only
became intimate with Mr. Moore, but with
his family. Abont nine o’clock on Thursday
night be persuaded Mr. 3looro to accompany
him to New York, and that is the last seen of
him. On Friday morning, Sherman, accom
panied by another Government detective,
called at the house and requested the privi
lege of searching Mr. Moore's baggage. The
proprietor, Mr. Burns, told him he should al
low bo one to enter their rooms without the
consent of Mrs. Moore, who was absent at
the time, having gone to New York in search
of her husband. Sherman then left, and the
other detective occupied a room opposite Mr.
Moore’s apartments. A short time thereafter
Sherman returned in company with lira.
3loore, who consented that he should exam
ine their baggage. The detective proceeded
to do so iu the presence of Mrs. Moore and
daughter and the proprietor of the house.
Tlcj overhauled everything, and took pos
session of a few scraps of manuscript and
several daguerreotypes, with which they left.
31 ra. Moore expressing confidence that there
was nothing in the trank to Implicate her
husband in any respect, or in any offence, in
terposed no objections whatever- Mr. Moore
is about sixty years of age, -and a native of
3lnryland. Col. Sherman stated that Mr.
3loore’s real name was Hyland, and that he
was an agent of the Southern- Confederacy.
He also informed Mr. Bams that ho should

Correspondence Between lord
Eyons and Mr. Seward.
The subjoined correspondence has recently
hcen Issued from, the British Foreign Offlco:
Foreign Omor, April 24, 1853.
In my previous dispatches by this mall I
have given you instructions with respect to
the coses of tho the Dolphin, and
the letter of Mr. Adams.
There is an impression here with regard to
all these cases of wrong on the port or Amer
ican authorities which Is still more serious
than the wrongs themselves. It is an Impres
sion widely spread and deeply felt that it Is
the Intention of the American Government,
by captures without cause, by delays of adju
dication, by wanton imprisonment of the.
master and part of the crew of captured ves
sels, to put a stop to the British trade to Mat
amoras altogether.
The trade to Matamoras Is, however, a per
fectly legitimate trade. It is carried on from
New York, as It is from London and Llver
pooL To pretend that some goods carried to
Matamoras may bo afterwards transported
across tho frontier to Texas does not vititae
the legitimate character of the trade. Nor is
it possible to say beforehand that certain
goods will be consumed In Mexico, and cer
tain other goods will be carried into
tho so called Confederate States. It might so
happen that all the goods carried from Lou
don might be used in Mexico, and all the
goods sent from New York might be tran
sported by land to Texas. This is a matter
beyond the scope and destination of the sea
T it should appear that, from
jealousy of trade, or unjust suspicion of'con
traband, or any other motive, the British
trade were deliberately and systematically
made subject to vexations capture and arbit
rary interference, it is obvious that Great
Britain must interfere to protect her flag.
'While submitting to the most severe inter
pretation of the law of nations, she cannot
allow that, under pretext of that law, hostili
ties should bo carried on against a lawful
branch of her commerce.
. You will take care to make the sentiments
of her Majesty’s Government clearly and dis
tinctly understood by Mr. Seward as to this
' Lord Lyons accordingly communicated this
letter to Mr. Seward in the form of a memo
randum, to which Mr. Seward returned the
following reply:

thorities which is still more serious than the

spread and deeply felt, that it is the inten
tion of the American Government, by cap
tures without cause, by delays of adjudica
tion, by wanton imprisonment of the mas
ters and part of the crews of captured vessels,
to put a stop to Che British trade to Matamo
ras altogether.”
Tou further represent to me, the views
of jour Government, that the trade to Mata
moraa is aperfectly legitimate trade; that it
is carried on from New York as it is from
London and Liverpool; that to pretend that
come goods carried to Matamoras may be
afterwards carried across the frontier to
Texas.does not vitiate the legitimate char
acter of that trade. Yona&ked.how Is it pos
sible to say beforehand that certain goods will
be consumed in Mexico, and certain other
goods will be earned into the so-called Con
federate States t You argued that It might
happen that all the goods carried from Lon
don might be used in Mexico, and all the
goods sent from New York might bo trans
ported by lanu to Texas, and this is a matter
beyond the scope and destination of the sea
Ido not in the least doubt that the Im
pression which you have thus described does
not exist in England, and! am not prepared
to question the lact that it is as deeply and
widely prevalent as you have described. I con
well enoogh understand, I think, that pains
have been taken to produce the Impression by
many persons there, some of thembeingyour
countrymen, and more of them belo? mine,
to whom the preservation of peace between
the United States and Great Britain la a sub
ject of less concern than mercantile specula
tions or sinister political designs ot their
own; and I think I can understand how such
persons may for a time, by extravagant and
conceited statements, mislead the public
mind of a country even so enlightened and
considerate as Great Britain. I must at the
same time be allowed to say that, as no facts
are. given in support of this impression, so 1
think it has been produced in the absence
of any occurrence sufficient for its j aslitico
lon. *
Yon added that If, therefore, It should ap
pear that, from jealousy of trade, or unjust
suspicion of contraband or any motive, the
British trade were deliberately and systemati
cally made subject to vexatious capture and
arbitrary interference, it is obvious that Great
Britain must interfere to protect her flag; ar.d
you closed with sayingtbat, while submits ’.g
to the most severe interpretation of the l.w
of nations, she could not allow that, under
pretence of that law, hostilities should be
carried on against a lawful branch of com
It was not possible for me to be ready to
icply at once to a representation so entirely
new, so comprehensive, and yet so elaborate;
and I contented myself with promising you
that it should receive, at an early day, tne se
rious consideration to which it is entitled.
It Is only very recently that this especially
enlarged Matamoras trade has come to our
notice. Suddenly and quickly as palaces,
cities. States or Empires rise In the tales of
the Arabian Nights, under the waving of a
wand or the utterance of a spell, that trade
rose from a petty barter to a commerce that
engaged the mercantile activity of Liverpool
and Loudon. Simultaneously roads across
the interior of Texas were covered with cara
vans ; the cotton of disloyal citizens iu the
insurrectionary region became all at once the
property of the treasonable conspiracy against
the Union, and was hypothecated by its
agents lor a foreign loan to satisfy obligations
contracted by them in the fitting out and
equipping and clearing from British ports of
steam naval expeditions to destroy the com
merce of the United States. The Peterhoff
was about the first discovered of the vessels
engaged Jn this extended trade. Unusual arts
a*u devices were alleged with much probabil
ity, to have been used by her owners to secure
for her immunity as a trader bound to Mata
moras with a lawful cargo, when, in fact, she
was not designed to reach, or oven seek that
fiort at all,but to discharge her freights in rebel
ighters at the mouth ofthe Rio Grande,at the
order of pretended consignees who were her
passengers, to be conveyed at once to the
possession ofthe insurgents on American,
not3lexican soil. She was indicated, more
over, as a forerunner of other fraudulent craft
of the same character, organized with regu
larity so as to constitute a contraband packet
line. She was searched, and upon probable
ground was seized and sent to the nearest
available port for adjudication. The court at
Key West having temporarily risan, she was,
In compliance with the wishes of the British
authorities, as well as of Che owners, sent at
ouce to New York. Investigation was
promptly instituted there. It has been prose
cuted with os much diligence and. regularity
as were ever practiced in any prize court in
any country, and no uaredreased complaint
has yet been made to this Government of any
error or abuse which has occurred in the pro
ceedings; but that investigation had only
commenced there when the impression was
suddenly made in England to which yoar
lordship has called my attention, and made in
advance, andwith the tendency, if not the pur
pose, to discredit the tribunal by anticipat
ing its judgment of all legal right to arrest
tbu new contraband trade.
Il 'would, be neither possible nor becoming
forme, on behalf of the Government, tore
sort to specific explanations designed to fur
nish you means for correcting the erroneous
and unjust impression whlchyoahave brought
to my notice, without indicating dh jour own
part any illegal or unfair act ot this Govern
ment or its agents which could have been
concerned In producing that impression. 1
must be content, therefore, with a denial in
the gencr.iland in the particular of every one
of the designs or dispositions attributed to
this Government by those persons in England
who have made or received the impression
which you have described. No other proof
need be offered to show that the Impression
is groundless and erroneous than the corres
pondence which has taken place between this
Department and the British office for Foreign
Affairs touching the cases of seizure which
have occurred throughout the whole war, in
cluding the cases of the Dolphin and the Fe
terhofi, ezporfc statements of which in Eng
land would seem to have had effect in produc*
ing the erroneous impression complained ot
Thus, referring confidently to that corres
pondence, I have now farther to inform your
lordship that every seizure which bos been
n ode since the hist autumn was made under
the just and fair and unquestionably legal in
structions ot the Secretary of the Navy, which
were announced to you by me in my note of
the Bth of August last, and that no other or
different instructions, open or secret,
have been given by this Government.
As it cannot be assumed by the
United States, nor conceded by Great Brit
tain, that all vessels ostensibly trading
between a British port and Matamoras are un
lawfully engaged, bo it cannot be claimed by
Great Britain, nor conceded by us, that some
British vessels may not be fraudulently en
gaged in that ostensible trade in conveying
supplies for the Insurgents of the United
States. The Government pats forth its best
efforts in oil cases to prevent abases ot the
right ot the power of search; and if these ef
forts sometimes full through the incompeten
cy or misjudgment of an agent, it hastens to
correct the involuntary error. It refers the
trial of every fact and of every question of
law to a Court recognized by the law of no
tions, no one of whose judgments has yet
b»-en complained of byjthe British Govern
ment, and which, therefore, justly lies under
no suspicion of either want of intelligence or
wont of Impartiality.
Happily, the operations of the army and the
navy on the Mississippi seem now to be like
ly to break up the inland way over which
the unlawful trade in question was intended
to be carried, and to remove the remunera
tive temptations to a continuance of that in
jurious and forbidden commerce. Renewed
instructions have been given to the com
manders of the blockading fleet to practice
caution, and conform strictly to the principles
of maritime law in conducting searches and
seizures. The Admiralty is likely soon to
pionounce upon the legality of the seizure of
the Feterhoff, and in other coses which arc
in preparation for adjudication.

An Inside Tiew of Horgafs
The Kentucky (Lexington) Loyalist has had
a view of the journal of Lieut. CoL Alston,
Morgan's Chief of Staff, who was captured by
onr pickets on the sth. We select the follow]
leg as of interest from a larger mass of unin
teresting matter:
July sth.—Another day of gloom, fatigue
and death. Moved on Lebanon at sunrise.
Placed our men in line. Sent around CoL J.
with his brigade to the Danville road to cut
oil reinforcements, which we knew were ex
pected] from Danville. I went with a flag of
tmee. It was fired on five times. Officer
apologized, saying he thought it was a m m
with a white coat on. Very dangerous mis
take, at least for me. Demanded uncondi
tional surrender. Told CoL Hanson wo had
his reinforcements cut off, and resistance was
useless. He refused to surrender, and 1 then
ordered him to send out the non-combatants,
aa we would be compelled to shell the town.
Ho posted his regiments in the depot and in
various houses, by which ho was enabled to
make a desperate resistance. Alter a fight of
seven hours, Gen. Morgan, finding the town
could bo taken in no other way, ordered a
charge to be made. This ought to have been
done at first, bat Gen. Morgan said, when It
was urged on him, that he wished to avoid
the destruction of private property as much
as possible, and he would only permit it as a
last and final resort. CoL Hanson still held
cut in hopes of receiving reinforcements, and
only surrendered after we hod fired the build
ings In which he was posted. XUs force
consisted ot the 20th Kentucky, about 270
men, and 20 or 25 stragglers from other com
By this surrender we obtained a sufficient
quantity of guns to arm all onr men who were
without them; also, a quantity of ammuni
tion, of which we s*ood sorely in need. At
the order to charge, Duke’s regiment rushed
forward, and poor Tommy Morgan, who was
always in the lead, ran forward and cheered
tho men with all tho enthusiasm of his bright
nature. Almost at tho first volley he fell
back, pierced through the heart. His only
words were, “ Brother Cally they jhave killed
me. n Noble youth I how deeply lamented by
all who knew yon. This was a crashing blow
to Gen. Morgan, as bis affection for his broth
er exceeded the love of Johnathan to David.
It caused a terrible excitement, and the men
were In a state of frenzy. It required the ut
most energy and promptitude on. the part of
the officers to prevent a scene of slaughter,
which all would deeply have lamented. Our
men behaved badly here, breaking open stores
and plundering indiscriminately. All that
officers could do, was done to prevent, but la
<dn. These occurrences are very disgraceful
and I am truly glad that they form exceptions
to the general conduct,
'While I was paiolling the prisoners, & cour
ier arrived, informing me that the enemy were
approaching with two regiments of cavalry
and a battery of artillery, and that skirmishing
was then going on with oar pickets. I was
therefore obliged to order the prisoners to
Springfield on the doable quick. Soon otter
we leu Lebanon, the hardest rain I ever etpe- ,
rienced commenced to fall, and continued till
9 o'clock- Arrived a* Springfield at dark,
when I halted the prisoner* In order to parole
those who where not paroled at Lebanon, and
formally dismissed them. This detained me
at Springfield two hoars -after the command
had pasted. Wet and chilly, worn oat, horse
tired and hungry. Stopped to feed here. Fall
ing asleep, was aroused by one of the men.
Started on to thu command. When I reached
the point on the Bardstown road where 1 had
expected the 2d Brigade to encamp, was halt
ed by a party of cavalry. Supposing them to
he our own pickets, 1 rode up promptly to
correct them for standing In full view of any
one approaching, when lot to my tnorliSca
tion,l found myself a prisoner. My God!
how I hated it, no one can understand. The
first thought, after my wife and children, was
my fine in are, “Fannie Johnson,” named after
a pretty little cousin, of Richmond, Va. I
said, “poor Fannie, who will treat yon as
kindly as I have 7” I turned her over to the
Captain and begged him to take good care of
her, which he promised to do.
July Bth.— Great rejoicing in Lexington
over the foil of Vicksburg. (X do not beueve
it.) It is a great disaster, one among the very
worst that could befall ns. Bat even If It is so,
and even should Lee’s army be deatroyedaod
every town in the South burned, the rebellion
would be unsubdued. There are a hundred
thousand men in the South who feel as I do,
that they would rather an earthquake should
swallow the whole country than yield to our
oppressors. 3fen who will retire to the
mountains and live on acorns, and crawl on
their bellits to shoot an invader wherever
they can see one.
From , the Bed Moines Register orthe 10th
tost., we gather the following samples ot Cop
perheadism, as developed at the State Con
vention recently held:
No Cheers for och Soldiers.—No cheer
yesterday was raised by the Copperheads for
the gallant army of the Potomac. Not a cheer
for the fall of Vicksburg was echoed along
the streets. No word of applause was heard
for the brave soldiefs who have periled limbs
and life to roll bock the tide of rebellion.
There were cheers, however, forVaUandig
ham! There were cheers fur Geo. W. Jones
and Mahony. There were ehcers for the head
devils of the rebellion.
A Pair op ‘Worthies.— Stflson Hutchins,
of rebel notoriety, made a characteristic
speech on the Fair Grounds against the nomi
nation of Tattle for Governor. Hutchins is
net a graceful speaker by any means. In fact,
be Is awkward, coarse and foolish. For in
stance, he said —
“lam opposed to the nomination of Tattle
I for Governor, because he has imbrned his
hands in the blood of his Southern brethren!”
Not satisfied with this statement of the case,
Hutchins asserted that in cose drafted,
he would’nt employ a substitute, and more
than that, he would’nt go to war. Bully for
iiahony, the celebrated prisoner of State,
who got out of a hostile on the strength of a
strong oath to support a Government which
he had betrayed, made a speech in whieh he
used the following language;
“ The North was the first to commence this
war, and ought to be the first to lay down its
The remark was heavily cheered.
Destructive at
Day City, Alicli,
On Sunday afternoon, about half-paht two
o’clock, a fire brdse out in the town of Bay
City, which was not got under until nearly
the whole of the place was laid in ashes. Tne
buildings being of a dry and combustible no*
tnre, the flames spread with fearful rapi4ity.
There being only one fire engine la town, the
service performed by it was wholly made*
quate for the occasion. The. fire spread so
rapidly that the firemen were "compelled—be
ing on the wharf—to abandon the engine,
consequently it was destroyed. The progress
of the devouring element was only a; rested
by blowing up several buildings with gun*
powder. For many hoars the fire raged fear,
tally, and in many cases families wo:e driven
from their houses, barely escaping with what
tLey had on them. We are without many
particulars, which it would be essentially
necessary to pnbliab, bat we expect full and
authoritative news immediately. Many De
troiters own property In Bay City. —Jtetroil
Advertiser, 14tA.
The proceeds of the sale of the Princess
Royal and cargo were forwarded to Washing

to $342,005.32. The expenses, $17,530.03,

the whole amount of tales. The Princess
Royal was captured about four months since,
and condemned by the United States Court
in Philadelphia. The proceeds are to bo di

The plantations of mulberry trees for
feeding silk-worms have been much extended
in Greece, and the total number la now sap
posed to be 1,600.000. Fig trees also bare
been planted in great abundance, and the
number of olive trees, which in 1554 was esti
mated at 2,000,000, hod advanced to 8,000,000
in 1860. As the price of an olive tree is from
£1 to £4, there is a great augmentation to the
national wealth in thfc branch of industry.
