Foreign advices report the result of the pre

that he invited some of his spooney British
friends to come out in their yachts and see
him whip the Kearsarge. They came, hat
“didn't see it” The British yacht
Deerhound, did, however, slide in
after the disabled pirate had struck her
flag and took away Semmes and some of his
officers. Until we receive particulars we

were not five citizens of rebcldom on board.
Tbe engagement was a square fight between
a British war steamer sailing under rebel
colors and a United States steamer. And her

The Governor of New York is doing his
best to stir up some kind of a difficulty on '
account of the arrest of the proprietors of I
Ibe Wo7ld and Journal Commerce, and the !
suppression ol the publication in those pa- 1
pers of the forged proclamation of the Pres
ident The publication of tbe forgery was a
criminal act, whatever may have been the
motive. It embraced the four crimes of
forgery, conspiracy to defraud, treason, and
libel. The President bad tbe same right, in
dependent of any special enactment, to stop
the commission of these crimes, just as a
sheriff or policeman would have the right to
arrest without warrant any person in tho act
of committing a felony. Besides this power,
he had the special authority of the act of
Congress of 18C1, authorizing such arrests
by the President, the constitutionality of
. which has never been brought in question, i
At common law and by special statute the
arrests were clearly justified and regular, and

listen to. A warrant has been issued for the
arrest of Gen. Dix, who gives his personal

Seymour seems determined to make the
conduct of the authors and publishers of the
forgery appear respectable. It already does

Kidnapping and In cl tin" to a Blot*
[From the N. T. Post, July 2,
The arrest of Gen. Dix and several other
officers yesterday, was made upon warrants
issued by City Judge Bussell. Several per
sons had appeared before the City Judge In
answer to subpoenas allowed by him, at the
instance of District Attorney frnji, and had
testified to facts relating to the seizure of
the World and Journal of Commerce newspa
pers. Wc give below the substance of the
documents ~on which the warrants ot arrest
were founded.
The letter of Governor. Seymour to the
District Attorney, condemning the Grand
Jury for its return in the case of those news-
Eapers, and saying that “the subject should
e Drought before some proper magistrate, 1 ’
is said to have induced the District Attorney
to procure the affidavlU to be made before
Bussell. The District Attorney first made an
affidavit in the form of a complaint, dated
28tb June, in which be declared that he had
been informed and believed that “Hon. A.
Lincoln” directed “John A. Dix” to do sev
ers! acta against the World and Journal of
Commerce and the editors ol those journals
enumerated in the complaint of the District
Attorney; and charging that the said Dix
“feloniously ordered one Wilson Barstow”
(Captain Barstow) to arrest the editors of the
newspapers named, and “mischievously or
dered one William Hays” (Acting Assistant
Provost Marshal General Hays) to procure
the closing up of the newspaper offices; that
the arrest of Mr. Hallock was procured,
and that gentleman kept for the space of
about three hours; that “the said Hays” in
structed Maj. Bowers, who caused “one Cun
dj” (Capt, Cundy and some commissioned of
fficers and privates, whom the District Attor
ney names, to “ go armed and equipped” to
take possession of the Journal of Commerce
office; and that the said Hays caused similar
acts to be done to the Worlds through Lieut.
Gabriel Tuthill and several other soldiers.
The District Attorney then charges that John
A. Dix and Wilson Barstow arc guilty of kid
napping, and the others with John A. Dix of
inciting to a riot and forcibly detaining pron
ty; and the District Attorney prays that ac
tion be taken to sustain the dignity of the

Sheriff Kelly served warrants of arrest on
General Dix, Capt Barstow, Major Bowers,
Capt Candy and'Lieut Tnthill. The war
rants were returnable on Thursday, but Gen.
Dix bad other engagements, and the return
was postponed to yesterday noon; when the
officers appeared with United States District
Attorney £. D. Smith, before the City Judge,
and it was agreed that the cose should be ad

HzADQUABTms 3d Dxt. 20th Coups, }
Near Maeietta, Ga., Wednesday, Jane 29. j*
The usual ripple of musketry broke upon oar
ears on the morning of the 2*sth, but the breeze of
battle did not fairly spring up until the afternoon,
when the big waves swelled along the whole line,
except in onr immediate front. The guns on onr
right sounded at each a distance as to preclude the
idea of their being Schofield’s. The only infer
ence drawn was, tkat they were the strong rein
forcements expected, and most probably the two
corpE—lßth and 10th —spoken of in my last letter
as being on the way. This cannonading and skir
mishing did not produce any apparent results. It
was “great cry and little wool.” In the evening
orcers were issued for an advance of
the uho’e Hut, except Hooker’s corps, which was
already close against the enemy's works, and was
instructed to be in readiness and wait farther
Toe morning of the 27th dawned dear .and
bright, and at 6 o’clock—the time fixed—the ball
opojeo. Boom 1 Boom! Bang, Bangl Crack,
crock, crack, went the artillery near and remote.
Tch-oe-tc flew the rifle balls through the air and
tree tops. Ibe course of the dying thelts could be
distinctly traced in the imagination from the deaf
ening noire of the discharge to the sound
of explosion.
I Though the 20th corps were not engaged, the
I batteries under the direction or Capt. Geary being
I in the commanding position secured by oar ad*
| vance on the i2d, played into the enemy's lines,
and were ol great assistance.
But what is that peculiar bang — hang, bang,
long! in rapid succession, which occurs occa
sionally—with a strong staccato sound 7 That is
a signal for one of oor batteries to Arc. given from
some point of obserration. and now came the rat
tling peals fhim our front. Again is heard the
sharp and distinct signal, one—one, two, three—
and away goes the battery at short range into tbo
enemy's works.
Palmer and Howard now opened vigorously and
waked np old Kinesaw. The S6th was the hot
test day oltbe campaign, bat the 27th was, If pos
sible, hotter. At 7 o'clock It was hot ail around.
Tbe eon was very fierce. Oar neighbors of the
S3d Corps were now advancing under a heavy fire,
and matters became very lively. Everything was
got ready tn move at amoment's notice, and every
body was on the alert. At length all Pandemo
nium broke loose. The faint boom from
the 44 Twin Sisters ” and the heavier thenge
ol Palmer's artillery was beard in the dis
tance in regular succession, woite ours cracked
away in front, and the round clear tones of Scho
field’s and those of some more distant command,
dinned away on our right. This horrible lodge
%/odge of sound was duly streaked with the spiteful
ich-eo- ip of the rifle-balls, and relieved by the rattle
oi mnrkctrv which occasionally performed a disa
greeable solo. We—non-combatant—squatted be
hind trees, cntQ discretion was deemed the better
part of valor, and then moved into a timbered
valley forgteater ealely. A shell, however, found
ns there, but did no injury.
The beat of the engagement died away about
coon, and In tbe evening there was nothing bat
the usual everlasting picket firing. The whole
movement was a reconnoisance m force to ascer
tain tbe exact locality and condition of the enemy's
lines. Oor line west of tbe Railroad advanced
several hundred yards and held the position close
to the enemy's works, Howard’s corps making
about half a mile with considerable loss. A num
ber ol rebel prisoners were taken.
Wc found that the rebels were well fortified,
being behind breastworks and intrenebments four
to five fret in height, and six feet thicc. strongly
protected by abattie of heavy sharpened
timber and fallen trees. We are now
as close to the enemy's works as wc can go with
out rushing on them. There ore onlv two ways to
St over tne difficulty—storming or flanting. The
ter will be adopted.
Dtumg tbe engagement Prig. Gen. HcCook com
manding a brigade in Davis’ division ol tbe lith
corps, was wounded seriously. Brig. Gen. Barker,
commanding a brigade in the ■*tb corps, was wound
ed in the arm. Brig. Gen. J, C. Davis, command
ing a division in tbe lath corps, earned one line of
the enemy’s works near the mountain. Gen. Dodge,
commanding the 16th corps, drove the rebels
into their fortifications, up one side of Ren

Washington is much less excited relative
to the recent rebel raid toward Maiyland,
than over those of former years. Reports
are various and contradictory to the last de

quarters that Ewell and Breckinridge arc at
Martinsburg, as has been reported.

a slight loss.
Sigcl says there were 2,000 cavalry—the
number of infantry is not known.
A dispatch just received by the Governor
says fifteen rebel cavalrymen were seen with
in five miles of Hagerstown this afternoon.
Other reports, considered reliable, say there
are no rebels this side of the Potomac. The
object of the enemy Is to advance as far as
possible into Pennsylvania, and steal horses
and provisions.
Of Gen. Couch's movements it is improper
to speak. He will be in consultation with
Gov. Curtin and will have sole management.
The old Pennsylvania Reserves are ready to

This session ol Congress has passed more hills, in
proportion to the number introduced, th«n any
preceding session for a great many years, while
most all of the measures which nave been passed
have been of an important character. Both Houses
succeeded In clearing the general and private cal
endars of nearly all hills, besides a larje number
.introduced and passed withoutany reference. Bat
‘here were four very Important-bills passed by
both Houses during the prolonged- session of last
The first was the new conscription act abolish
ing the commutation clause,which was carried In
the House by twelve majority. There were some
ten Republican votes against It, and bad hot so
many Democrats been absent, the bill would have
been easily defeated. Six New England Republl
can members voted against Us final passage.
The next important measure was the bill for a
special war tax of five per cent on all Incomes in
addition to the regular Income tax. The Ways
and Means Committee had a severe struggle to get
this bill considered, but when the threat of an ex
tra session was held up, all the opposition yield
ed. and at 8 o’clock this morning It had passed
both Houses. While pending In the Bouse,
Mr. Washburne, of Blinola, had to ride his hobby
on to the bill in the shape of his old amendment
taxing all stocks of liquors on hand. This was
carried amid much excitement, in Committee of
the Whole, and was then adopted by the House,
who then turned about ard defeated the entire bill
by several majority. A motion to reconsider was
carried, and the original tax bill finally passed,
