Tin; NEWS.
The rain last evening, with accompa
nying thunder and lightning to the east,
yard, proved a sad damper on telegraph
ic news. Enough was received to show
lhat nothing of marked importance has
transpired. We are still told that all is
vjuict on the Rappahannock, and it is cer
tain Hint Gen. Gilmore is shortly to make
liimself an unpleasant via a vis to Charles
ton from the extremity of Morris Island
Gen. Burnside, it is stated, has tendered
Ids resignation, following immediately
upon the brilliant accomplishment oflds
East Tennessee campaign. He was un
willing to retire while yet the cap stone
Was wanting to Lis success as a
cr in the "West; hnt now that he enn retire
illustriously, he does eo—an act that will
Do viewed with general regret
The season of State Fairs is at hand
lowa opens the series next week in her
State Fair to commence at Dnbnqne on
Tuesday. "We arc assured that everything
promises well for its completeness and at-
Iracliont
There is a call for Hie active expression
of sympathy, and a diligent dilation
among Copperhead presses and partisans
The liberty of the press and the people
las been interfered with, and the outrage
of sending Baltimore seoesh editors South
tvard through our lines is one not to be
lamely borne. '
ACBEITFCBUCEm.
The growth ol intemperance in our
communities can but be viewed with con
cern by all who watch the signs Q f the
limes and give their full place to the influ
ences ior good or evil that pertain to soci
ety. Any reference to the passion for
drink, on platform, in pulpit or press, is
prone to, calls into consideration, with
vaiying sentiments of sympathy or other
wise, the various machinery in time past
or at present in operation to check or cure
Ihiseyil. Old partizanships, antagonisms
End rivalries, in ancient party lines startup
spectrally before the timid mind But it
is possible to speak of the dangers of ship
[wreck without attempting to farther the
interest of this or that maker of lif.-i.nnts
Jt is veiy easy to demy and And fault
ith Chicago water without making such
reference subservient to the interests of
this or that manufacturer oi filters. The
public can be warned of a great and grow
ing evil, and each man convinced can take
Icme to hitnsdfthe consideration of rem
edies.
The evii Inmkcnness is becoming
more and Ec;i openly a feature of onr
social life. Tlie snares it is setting for the
young men of the nation, the victims it is
fading among those to whom the present
generation is shortly to commit its import
ant trusts, are all forcing themselves pow
c-ntdty and painfully upon the observation
of Ihe very many who have the welfare of
the country at heart, and see in this curse
a weakening and waste of its best forces of
tnational life. Scarcely a reader of the
.IrjucKE can look through the list uf lila
own near acquaintances and relatives
Without reading in painful living pictures
the truth of this statement.
It is an easy and common method to
dispose ot this subject, to say that this is
a time of war. It is impossible not to see
that the enhancing of this danger of soci
ety has been tenibld since the gathering of
our great armies. The boun companion
ships of military life, the ennni of the re
cruiting station and the camp, theremoval
of the ordinary restraints of the domestic
circle, have all had their effect in loosing
the bonds that have safely held the citizen
lo sobriety and temperance. The evil in
our armies is happily less among the sol
diers, to a large degree saved by the strict
rules of the service. It has wrought Its
fuller effects among officers, the liberal
patrons of tbc army merchant whose
tempting spirit cases go to all parts oi the
lines. Could the catalogue be made out
of the shames and crimes, the sacrifices of
Ziravc men, the self-immolation of noble
souls thus squandered, the people would
Stand appalled. Tct men do talk of them.
Common conversation singles out this and
Chat commander and once promising offi
cer, as the victim of this vice, perhaps dis
tuissed in disgrace, or gone home to die,
Xiot because of a Southern climate, hut be
cause of a habit whose deadly blight no
Zniasm can equal.
Prom the army the evil leaches back
Upon the people. There is more license
less restraint The effect who cannot see.
The result who does not dread. The time
trill come when this evil must receive the
tittcntion oi all whbaim to he conservators
of the interests of society. There never
was a lime in the history of this or any
other nationVhen the rewards of sobriety
■were mere tempting tbnn now. There
never was a call fur a higher manhood, a
nobler premium offered to prominence in
ell the traits that ennoble humanity than
now, when our nation is in the furnace, to
Tjc cast anew. It had not been given to
Shore of more peaceful preceding genera
tions to labor at the work of nation-build
ing. If the period has its trials, it is stud
ded thick with triumphs. We are laying
anew the national wall and the names of
■worthy workers will he builded into its
face, a momenta for all coming time.
Let a few plain words enforce the lesson
of the hour. Our triumphs In this battle
ago are not alone on the corpse-streim
Held. The grandest Tictories yet won since
this war broke ont hare shed ink, not
Llood, in a triumph of principle.* Presi
dent and people have moved long arrows'
iCights forward in a march grander
and more terrible to opponents than the
earth-shaking tread of armies. The evil
referred to must not he allowed to grow
■while the care of the people is'direrted to
other duties. That cannot be a light evil
•which robs society of her young men its
strong men. To every one to whom this
conviction is brought, belongs an allotted
Fha re of duty. Granted the existence of
the curse and blight, whoever by personal
influence, and example, and labor, lessens
its power, and sets one single stake in the
bounds to its spread, has in so much bene
fited the age and the country.

none took effect,
Tima cur flag is .the first to be insulted hr
ttc Jwjancsc, our commerce is the first to be
interfered with, and all oar old theories of
Americans being a favored nation by the
Japanese falls to the ground.
Onr Minister, Hr. Pruyn, could hardly, as
yet, have received intelligence of the outrage,
as the Pembroke did not stop at Nagasaki,
as was intended, but came direct To this
place, since which time nothing has left here
for Eanagawa. Wc are, therefore, ignorant
as to what course he may see fit to pursae in
the matter. We do not think the Govern
inert a* tea* had anything to do instigating
this outrage, hut believe it was done by some
of the independent Princes, cither on their
own responsibility or by tbe authority of the
rew Government at Maco. This, coupled
wit h.tbe declaration made by the Japanese
in regard to clearing the country of foreign
ers, is significant in the extreme, and leaves
little room for doubt as to what the conserv
ative party may attempt themselves, if the
Tycoon is not able to succeed by negotiations.
It alto goes toward establishing the opinion
expressed as to the cause of the singular re
qufet of the Government for foreigners to
tal.t-moans to protect themselves' we can
not agree with many here that our troubles
Japan are ended. The aspect of affairs
:s er.ything but pleasing to those who are ac
quainted with the whole aspect.
TEE AKGLO-REBEL IROX-CIA3S,
Two of them Nearly Beady for Sea,
SIZ OTHERS NOW BUILDING,
[From the N. Y. Tribane, fith.]
From a passenger by the steamship Scotia,
▼bo enjoyed peculiarly favorable facilities for
: becoming familiar with the facts, ire learn
that the Anglo-Eebel Iron-Clads are being
pushed forward to completion with the u£-
most vigor. Two 2,000 tun iron clads, com
oiDing the ram and monitor principles, are
being built by Laird at Birkenhead. One of
these is already launched. They are plated
with four Inch iron: each carry two turrets,
twelve Inches thick, and hare formidable rams
projecting from their stems. Each turret will
caj ry two 200-pounder rifled gnus, and each
vend will be armed in addition with two
200 ponnder stem chasers, lire guns were
reaoyat Preston, Lancashire, and would be'
shipped and put on board in the Irish Chan*
nel The ram which was launched was ex
pected to sad within four days after the Sco
ria It ft, and the second would be launched bv
the time the first sailed. The dcstlnatloa.o‘f
the »e powerful vessels was repotted to be the
United States; but nothing definite was
known on that subject.
In order to facilitate their speedy comple
tion, work was kept np on them day and
right, several gangs being employed to re
lieve each other throughout the twenty-four
hours We are Inclined to doubt the state
ment that either of these rams will be ready
*£t soon as was expected. And far
»ms reason, our Informant, describing the
progress on the first ram, states that when
before leaving Liverpool,
jwrte, fitting the ilintLere. Sd
lions consume a good deal of time. It if 13-
dent, however, that no effort norecoeise
■mis being spared to posh forward the wort
Sindidr and Manrj- of the rebel navy, were
c»ijy in Laird’s yard, Inspecting the progress
of the vessels, and urging the builders for
ward.
Bam l*o. 1 was launched under the French
"•£» peraaseion for that purpose being given
by the French Consul at Liverpool? And
what is mom, tbe craft still flew the tri-color
when our Informant lelt The destination of
these vessels is well known to the Brirtteh
Grvemment. Oar agents have closely fol
lowed them from the beginning, and the evi
dence accumulated of their contraband cliar-
Mter.huaUbeen laid before the ministry.
Yet thus far. no effort has been made to res
train them from sailing.
But these are not all the ofienslve prepare.
Uont now lo progress against us in u neutral' 1
Great Britain. A large iron-clad sloop-of-war
is well*under way in the yard of a Liverpool
atip builder, whose name our informant has
forgotten, and five others of a very formidable
diaractor, are in tbe course of construction
on the Clyde. One of the-e. now building by
James and George Thomson, over 4 003 tuns
burden, will have four or live inches of iron
p'a.ing upon 18 Inches teak. BUe will not.
however, be ready to eall for come months.
On the day before the Scotia sailed, the
c «ptato of Bam No. 1 was hoard to state at
the Adelpbi Hotel, Liverpool, that he would
command that vessel. He remarked, lu con
vcreillon, that he was a Sonthcmrr and a
rebel.: bat more discreet than Maury and
Sinclair, he refrained from going near the
Iron-cuds, eo as to avoid bringing suspicion
npon their destination. Pnbllc opinion in
iAvcrpocj appeared to have settled down to
thisjioint: that the centrality laws of Eng
land hadbeen evaded long enough, and It
was time that the farce/came to an end. The
merchants and pub’.lc men hod come to the
conclusion that unless the Government inter
fered to stop these pirates from sailing, veiy
grave complications would arise between
Great Britain and the United States, which, it
was by no means improbable, would culmi
nate In open hostilities. Whether their
opinion is founded on fact, only the result
can cetermlno. -

which Mexico has reached, she conld not he
which Providenceap-
tohavedestmed her, il a powerful and
friendly han.d had not come to lend her the
aid she needed. This aid she has found in
the magnanimous protection of his Majesty
Napoleon lit. Emperor ot the French. In
! these circumstances, the Mexican who wishes
for the ealration of his country and the pre
servation of her independence, who baa con
secrated to her his best days, and sustained
benights with his sword, cannot do other
wise than accept the means which Providence
had yet reserved for his country to arrest her
on toe brink ol an abyss. This has induced
me to say to your Excellency, and I repeat it
here, tout I accept the intervention which
comes to afford my country the meins of
consolidating her independence, of maintain
mg ucr independence, and marching in the
pathway of order and true civilization.
In regard to the question of the form of
government, having been absent from my
country and unable to become acquainted
with the opinions of my fellow countrymen,
naturally called upon to decide till* grave
question, I Inlormcd your Excellency that
not being conversant with recent events. I
desired to inform myself conscientiously of
the manner in which public opinion should
declare itself, promising to make, afterwards,
a declaration of my own Ideas. I proceed,
then, according to ihc promise made your
Excellency, to declare my conviction that
public opinion has declared itself generally
and spontaneously for the monarchist form,
in all points of the country relieved from the
pressure of the demagogue party; that no
sane man can doubt such to be the general
will of the nation. This will b-m been mani
fested by the organ of the numerous Assem
bly ot Notables. Assembled after the form
consecrated by our customs and respected iu
all times by the country, that Assembly has
thought proper to adopt among the various
forms of government, a moderate, hereditary
monarchy with a Catholic prince, and to
offer the imperial crown of Mexico to his
Imperial Highness Maxmllian, ol Austria, as
the wishes publicly expressed by the country
required. I cannot, therefore, hesitate to
adept in all its partr and unreservedly approve
the et leiDD declaration of the Assembly.
Earing to make this frank andspontaueous
declaration of my convict!-ms to your Excel
lency, I embrace this occasion to offer you
the assurances of my distinguished con
sideration. Miguel Mhumox,

The Influence of great men is so wonderful
that I am afraid John Smith, ol the great
Smith family, msy come out some dry in a
letter which may set aU Europe by the cars, .
knock the continent of America into a cocked
hat, and set the Atlantic Ocean on fire.
How awfully grand it sounds to hear tiffs far
famed Mexican talk in his sublime way about
“the destinies of a nation entrusted to my
care;” and tben his touching abhorrence of the
“bloody footprints” of revolution, and that
quiet remark about his sword and the devo
tion of his best days to his country. So
strikingly patriotic, so refreaingly cool. How
eloquent his allusion to that “powerful and
friendly hand," the fingers of which not long
ngo morally and figuratively, tweaked his
ncce severely. Oh, fiunkeylsm, stand forth
and claim the world for your own. Poor
Miramon, you are not the worst of flunkeys,
perhaps; for where there are so many it
woe Id,be difficult to decide, and you have a
million and a hall of your country to com
pote with; but never mind, strike and despair
not; you will be a duke yet. Perseverance
and the Assembly will put you through.
1 have but one or two more items to add to
this Mexican news. M. Dubois de Siligoy,
the French Minister, was lying ill at the capi
tal. according to letters from there.
’The 15th nit. was celebrated in Vera Cruz,
and no doubt the capital shared in the enthu
siasm with which the birthday of a foreign
monarch should fill every Mexican bosom.
On tbe Bth rumors were prevelent in Vera
Cruz that Matamoras had declared for the
empire after the people had disarmed the
few Juarista troops that were there. Since
the papers of the 15th do not confirm tiffs ru
mor, we art at liberty to discredit it.
The regency has re-established the law of
November 29, 1854; relative to Courts of

EESIQUATIOIf OF GENERAL
BUENSIDE.
. New Tons, Sept IE—A special to the
Trihunt says: Gen. Burnside, upon complet
ing the redemption of East Tennessee, ten
dered his resignation to the War Department
by telegraph.
It is supposed he contemplated it some
time since, In consequence of the constant
political perplexities that beset him in the
administration of his department, through
the repudiation of certain of his measures by
the Government, but did not take the step
till he could leave the service without dis
credit to himself.
After expelling the last armed rebel from
JUb department, the headquarters of the
Anay-oX the Cumberland are established at
Chattanooga.
Washington, Sept. 11.—The following re

received orders, which suddenly electrified
them from the torpor of camp life to the ani
mation of the field.
~Thc sights that now fill the eyes are very
ome rent from the careless pictures of a few
days ago. There is little pomp or circum
stance, for the gat and the tinsel are tided
from the military coat of arms; but there is
that which passes show—deep earnestness
and desperate activity. The crowded tho«-
pughfares, with ladies strolling hither and
toitoer,with market wagons vending fruit and
fish, with ambulances, drays, and private ve
hicles coming and going, with officers and
soldiers, quite listless to everything hut ease
and idleness, with Jews and Gentiles, un
bleached domestics, dogs and cats, all jostled
in one rolling current of humanity, have
passed from view like the magic castle of
Aladdin of old. In their stead officers are
riding in every direction, squads of ewafry
gallop through the streets, and ordnance
trains lumber along from post to post.
% ow and then, as we lookout upon the
scene, a battery rolls by in a cloud of dust,
i*6 brass pieces shining mysteriously through
the snndy mist, and its wheels and gears mnt
terirg and growling for the foe. At times,
the distant ring of rifle or rattle of musketry!
or deeper bass of cannonade, rolls up to the
quiet skies, where the summer clouds play
like one of fleece aroundtho crags of Lookout
And here we sit, quite as rebellion s as ever,
dropping our ink drops In the ear of the foe
man, as he drops his shells into, we were al
most absnt to. say, onr own. Howbeit, we
shall stand our ground as best we may:
therefore, as the man said in the play, « Have

Besecrans and gang, mongrel, puppy, whelp,
sad hound. The mountains are on fire!
There are freemen in the crags. There are

thou canine epitome—
“and we will cndgel thee.
Like to a jelly that cats refuse to lick.”
The J2ebfl t at this writing, is about the only
public institution left in the almost desesrted
and once proud martial city of Chattanooga.
'Every other is on the wing, and probably
frill fancy that the shells are not after them-
We are left alone in onr glory. Alone with
onr types— w that client myriad army, whose
true metal never flinched or blanched
before the despot wrong.” The indulgent
reader will excuse onr scantiness of costume
and material, and will of coarse applaud onr
temerity in flaunting a few more Rebel sheets
defiantly in toe face of toe foe. Like the

Lincoln, generally.
[From the Southern Confederacy.]
The attack on this place, we are inclined to
believe, is a general advance on toe part of
Boeccrans to fake Chattanooga and northwest
Georgia, and drive hack Bragg. As we under
stand the matter, onr army is, and has been
on this side ot the Tennessee river, making
that river toe line of defense. The whole
country on cither side of the river is very
mountainous. The line of defense is a very
long one—from near Huntsville on our
extreme left far up into East Tennessee on
toe right. The shelling of Chattanooga on
Friday, and at intervals since then, is, no
doubt, a feint—toe true object being to cross
the river In force, at some other point, either
atHarrison, twenty miles above Chattanooga.
East Tennesse, or at Bridgeport below. We
bear that our forces haye actually de-
Bridgcpbrt, and driven away, and
that too enemy have thrown pontoons over
the river, upon which they have* crossed In
considerable numbers. We"cannot positively
vouch for tbe truth of this report, but we be
lieve it is correct.
We think a determined movement is now
beirgmadehy Bosecrans to cross his army
at Bridgeport, .jfld flank Chattanooga on ike
south, or to cross at Harrison, and malm a
dercent upon the State railroad at or near
Cbickamauga,, and we shall not be surprised
if a severe battle is fought on this aide of the
Tennessee Bivcr in a day or two.

We are in possession of dates from St. Do*

the war steamer Isabel 11. She comes Irom
Fnerto Plata, to which point she took troops
from Santiago do Cabo, and on her arrival
there on the 27th it was found to be in posses
sion of the insurgents, while the Spanish gar
rison had shut itself up In a small fort The
troops were landed from the steamer, consist
ing of one battallion and one field battery.
An immediate attack was ordered, and tho
men advanced, led by CoL Arizon j Castro,
of the Engineers, commander of tho expedi
tion, who behaved with the greatest gallantry
and fell, shot through the head, before the
enemy’s works were reached. The
were carried by storm and the Insurgents
fled, leaving a number of prisoners in tho
hands of the victors. Spanish loss, one killed
and twelve wounded. The Colonel, who was
the only one killed, lingered till next morn
ing.
Nearly six hundred troops are leaving to
day by the Pararo del Oceano, hut their pres
ence will not be needed. This insurrection is
over. The next will be about February, and
soon, every five or six months. The Qovem
jrenthere ought to pay more regard to the
comfort of the traveling public than to send

troops by a passenger steamer when there

I went on board the Foizaro last night, and
round that a number of persons whohad paid
their passage-had returned their tickets, pre
feiring to wait till another opportunity. It
is far from pleasant to be shnt up for fire or
six days in a steamer like the Pazaro at this
