THE SEWS.
Our Sunday night - news gives us a
'highly interesting summary of intelligence
irom the various theaters of war, and of the
recent operations of the pirate Tallchassec,
received at too late an hour for comments.
Gold opened in New York on Saturday at
264>£fmd closed at 255%.
No news is good news. There is nothing
Inter from Gen- Grant except through rebel
sources. * The Richmond papers state that
ytcamcre are moving down the James River
3a’dcn with Gen. Grant's troops, and as if to
confirm this, they further state tbat Grant is
Removing bis guns from Petersburg and Is
raising the siege. We have little faith, in
-these rebel minors. If Grant is actually
Tnoving troops down the James, undoubted
ly they will be heard from in good time.
Every thing goes on finely at Mobile, and
"the old sea lion Farragut is evidently best
upon a brilliant success. Onr advices have
come at last through Federal sources,and they
confirm the good news already received.
Tort Morgan still holds out, and Fort Gaines
3s occupied by our forces. During the ac
tion the rebels report that Farragut lost one
and one gunboat. The rebel Admi
ral Buchanan and the other prisoners are at
Pensacola.
.We print in this I sene & proclamation by
Got. Tates, calling for a fall regiment of in*
X*ntrj to be raised before Sept. S, for State
service in case of rebel Invasion or insurrec
tions incited by rebel emissaries and cop*
ytrrbead enemies of the Government. The
Xegimeut is designed to be a crack one, and
3 iroToet marshals and surgeons are ordered
to be stringent in tbelr 'examinations of re
cruits. The regiment will rendezvous tern*
Voracity at Camp Butler, near Springfield,
and when full is to report to Gen. Htlntzcl
yuan. There will be no difficulty, we appre
hend. in filling up this organization imme
diately. The service is an important one,
■the bounties are ample and the advantages
to be enjoyed are apparent at s glance. Chi
cago must furnish her share of this regi
incut. Let our citizens and military organi
sations fake hold 01 tbs.* matter Immediately
£.ud in earnest.
It is another instance of rebel duplicity
that immediately upon the exchange of tue
Charleston prisoners, the rebels placed a new
lot of our officers under fire. As it torus
out, General Foster has never exposed the
rebel prisoners in his charge to the fire
of their friends. "We hope he will not be re*
miss in this direction in future. Let retalia
tion in kind be practiced thoroughly. It is
the only remedy lor their atrocities.
Fighting before Atlanta on last Satmday,
Sunday and Monday is reported, but no par
ticulars are given farther than that the advan
li ges were upon onr side.
The typographical imbroglio in New York
js likely to be settled by a compromise be
tween the printers and publishers.
The Queen's speech on proroguing Farlia-
Jnent icccutly contains tbe following unex
ceptionable reference to our national
troubles:
Her Majesty deeply laments that the civil
war in North America has not beeu brought
lo a close. Her Majesty will continue to ob
serve a strict neutrality between the bellig
erents, and would rejoice at a friendly recon
ciliation between the contending parties.
A general Indian war Is anticipated upon
ihe Plains. Rebel cmlssarlce have been busy
/ smoDff tbe'lndiaos, and it is. feared that the
Various tribes irom Texas to the British
possessions have bonded together. If this
Lc so we thflT expect a repetition of tbe Min
nesota atrocities unless prompt means arc
adopted to crush the uprising at the outset.
Jt is an dement of vast power in the hands
£>f the rebels, bnt we are confident General
Curtis will be equal to the emergency. In
ihe meantime it is in firmer for tbe Copper
jituds to suggest the unconstltntionality of
yn&kiog war against the li-dlans.
A private letter from Memphis, dated BtU
3 iitt, states: “General A. J. Smith has at
lost got unde*- way, and that his expedition
Mill be successful, we soldiers have no
doubt. We all have great faith and confi
dence In Smith's generalship. The general
impression here is that it is Ms intention to
jro to Coinmbns, Miss, and there meet a
Vnioo force from Vicksborg. Gen. Smith
-grid here a few days ago that if Forrest could
subsift on army in that country, he can do
the same, and that he would go' and spend

UmXl OP HOOK COUNTY,
—Our Springfield dispatch Saturday morn
mt, placing the-deficit of Cook county at
4.020 men, took every one by surprise, and
crtu'.ed tomellilng of a “panic.” as nobody
Lad anticipated any ench figures. Bat as
people began to inquire and reflect, it was
heeu that tbe alleged deficit could not be

ihe records in Washington; but we presume
jhat our people will insist on going ■by the

When the baggage reaches Detroit it is con

cee«intbietemHic war is in thiir satetv and to
their victories. We know not where th»y m«y be
at thrt moment. Some are lying iu ibe trenches

Tbey leave bneinr??. pleasure, borne, society and
aj lor tbelr imperilled country, lie spoke for
their ranee. If we‘do not stand by them when’
they arc ibn? willing to give op all are they un
worthy of tbe liberties for wb’cb tney peril so
much?
Be spoke oi the Democratic Congressional Con
vention that assembled in Valparaiso on tftc ild of
.July, and read from tnelr resolutions, and tbe
record of their proceedings. He had trotted they
« uoio breath the spirit oi patriotism, and an Im
pcrit-hnblc devotion to the Union. WM not tbe

In-rcre them lejoice a«- th-y read the record of aid
and comfort iLurfor-.-itht’d to their 4 wi'’ked cause?
Whai is this efrugole? It is to maintain oar
p-yvemnjeiii It is government that protects ns
lilife, liberty, and property. It is covernment
that has surrounded us at with an au&csphcre of
hJeeange Wt have theorized about its blessings
in tbe past, bar we have never realized their price
lt>i. worth until,they were endtogcred. It la gov
einmcxit that protects ue from murder by nnrht
.and d.y, cur property trom de«tructiou, and dor
i-ursohs from outrage. With .government toe
weak to permit this protection anarchy becomes
U,p law—piuiM-rty becomes vaiules«, and individu
al 11 cr»y totally Insecure. Witness Mexico. No
man hue would take a firm as a free gift there
upon condition that he and his ftmlly should live
ut»on it, Tbe great question of to -day is, shall we
tana by onr government. . L •
Be then relerred to the rcsointions of the Turple
Oopvcn'ton. which denounced from tbe beginning
’« the end, every act of the administration to
maintain the government, and commented upon
theonc denouncing himself personally, for stand
li«** by the administration. He referred to their
dtnunciatiou of the government ass “reigning
d»BpoUpm,”io their oUusions to the “arrest oi
mioffenfling citizens,'' in which the speaker sup
wostd they referred to Marshal Kane and others;
to their denunciation of the “confiscation of rebel

a.ked li in their tender bollcitudc lor rebel right*
ttev wished tbe administration to send marshals
and constables to Richmond and elsewhere to-
I rme these “legal”, notices, and come hack a head

'He thtn referred to The lecMlatlon of Congress,
denounced with equal bitterness by the South, una
tbc opponents of me Aomlnlsmtion st lb j North.

The suspension of the hahetf corput was de

suspended the writ at New Orleans, arrested the j
jade® who issued the writ alter its suspension,
and the lawyer who sued it out, and Imprisoned
both within tie lines until peace wa- declared.
The whole Democratic party justified Jackson’s
act, and Abraham Lincoln hi- only followed in his
footsteps. McClellan, too, arre-ted the Legisla
ture ofMaryland, and itnprisomd theta, to pre*
rent their passing an ordinance of secession. Vet'
they eulogize McClellan and denounce Mr. Liu*
coin as aty rant and a despot. Now are they con
sistent in their denunciations. Two years aso
they denounced the S3IA) commutation clause, and
wten It was repefilea they were equally bitter in
thetr denunciations.
After referring to the Niagara Falls Peace Com
missioners, whom it was finally ascertained had'

Dispatches were received by the Governor
yesterday from the military post at Mankato
that on Thursday a party of thirty Indiana
fired on two men, haying In a field, near
Vernon, about twenty-five miles from Man
.keto, killing one, named Boot, and wound
ing his eon. The body of another man, sup
posed to have been killed by them, was found.
Some alanr existed in the neighborhood, and
the people collected In a stockade. A scout
reports that tbe raiding party consists of
stven in all, and they had stolen eighteen
torses. Plunder is undoubtedly their object.
They have slipped through or around our
lines, and will move off again rapidly. Gen.
Sibley is sure they will be surrounded and'
killed, as ample troops are in the region.
Msj. Clowney, commander of the expedi
tion to establish the site of and erect Fort
Wadsworth, writes to Gen. Sibley, under
date of Augusts, that be has selected
the site, a finely watered and timbered local
ity, near the Kettle Lakes, about halfway
between Lake Traverse and James River
and Pacotah Territory. The construction of
the fort is being pushed rapidly, and the
health of his command is good. Fort Wads
worth will he one of the moot important
posts on this frontier,
Gen. Sibley also received dispatches from
CoL Thomas yesterday, dated at Fort Rice,
July 16. The expedition of Gen. Sully was
to leave that post on the morning of August
JO, in a southeasterly direction, for the
ralccyLhntts, where he expected to find four
hundred lodges of hostile Sioux. Then they
will strike for Powder River, where it is rix
moied a force of the savages are stationed.
Tue expedition will now enter a wild and

Sandy Hook, Sunday noon, Aug. 14—
The boatmen of the Associated Prcsa at this
point, lauded here and furnished the follow
ing report: I have boarded the bark Suliote,
df AngnSta. Me., from Cow Bay. She was
captured off Montauk Point, thirty-five
miles distant, by the pirate TaUahasae. The
Unites bonded her for $50,000 and pnt on
joard her SOO passengers from the ship Adri
atic, the latter having been burnedby the pi*
rat*'. No water or. provisions were gi?en
her. She also.has on board Mr. Callahan,
and the crow of the pilot boat Wm. Bell,
No. 24, which vessel was burned on the kith.
The Suliote reports seeing a vessel burning
on the 12th. The pirates stated to some of
the captured persons that he was coming
Into New Fork Harbor soon.
TVhcn last seen tho Tallabosse wes steer
ing southeast The pilot boat Jas. Funk is
; her tender. The Suliote passed the frigate
- f>upqnehaima on Saturday, bearing Bill! south
of Sandy Hook. - .
Louis Lawson, a pilot, reports seeing, on
the Uth Inst, 25 miles off Montauk, a pilot
biig turned bottom up, no doubt the Carria
Estelle, Capt. Hamburg. At the same time
the pirate Tallabasee came close aboard with
the Union ensign afloa*. and after passing
hoisted the Confederate flag. The same day
she taw the schooner Slrene, a pilot boatwoa
burnt, name and number unknown.
The pilot Vat Ezra Njc arrived here, re
ports on the 12th Inst, off Montiak, siw
pilot boat Jos Fans leave a ship on fire, af
terwards a suspicious steamer took the pilot
boat in tow. The Nye stood off but after
wards went to the turning ship and found it
was the Adriatic from London for New York.
Two foreign barks.were byafc the time, to
whom It la supposed the passengers were
transferred. The Tallahnese was afterwards
seen near a large ship. The double ender
gunboat Siren was cruising off Fire Island
ol The barb Suliote has arrived, with the cap
tain erew. and passengers of the ship Adri
atic’ and tLe crew of the pilot boat william
Belt The passengers lost alUheir luggage.
Snlaracwas the number of persona placed
on board the Suliote, It sunk her so deep
that her deck was on a level with the water.
Had a storm arose probably all would have
been lost. The. Adriatic bad one hundred
and sixty-three paseengerß, and a fall cargo
nf merchandise, the latter mostly on dritfik
account In ronndingto after capture the
Aeriatic collided with the pinto, carrying
away the Tsllshaajce’a mainmast, and had
there been a good wind at the time el",
