The great gun, which has been for some months in course of construction for the navy by Mr. John Ericsson, arrived in New York a few days ago, and is now at one of the Iron Works being prepared for service. For obi vious reasons we are not prepared to state lUf location. It is one of the most marvellous in ventions of the time, and if successful, will revolutionize naval ordnance. Mr. Eriosson Contracted, some time since, to^pnstruct some 13 inch smooth bore gun, which are to have a much greater initial velocity than any now in use. less they burn over 50 pounds of powder ; for every pound of powder beyond 50, Mr. Erics is to receive $5,000. He is confident of being able to burn 100 pounds, and is certain of burning 75 pounds. Tho solid shot will weigh 220 pounds. The English 68-pounder,(of 12,000pounds,) said by It. R. H. the Duke of Cambridge to bo the most powerful gun in the English ser vice, with 16 pounds of powder, (nearly one fourth of the charge,) has au initial velocity of 1,800 feet per second, and, therefore, a punching power against iron plates of 27,500 000 pounds, of one-tenth to one-twelfth of the shots, and the lJ.-i.nch gun, with a charge of thirty-five its shot of 425 pounds, have yoloci Ho is to roceive nothing for them un a The rifled guns, with chargee iron ads to ties ranging- from 1,100 feet to 1,400 feet per second. The 300-pounder Parrott has, there fore a punching power of 42,000,000 pounds, and the 15-inch gnu of 55,500,000 pouncU. The new gun, with ™ P" un(U char 8 0 ' (one-third of llie weight,) wo'. 1 have as great a veloo.ty a, the 68-pounder, a ud punching power will 1« 55,000,003 pounds', or exackl Y Juuble that of the English gun. With 100 P üunds "f powder ita velocity should be raiseu ^ feet, and its punching power will be bw 000 ; O00 poundq. It will thus he by far the mo /ormidahle gun yet constructed. The great superiority of our new guns to those in use by foreign Powers will readily be noticed .—New York Times. ,'.6t Abottti.ni.m *n Virginia, Mary land aad Delaware. ■Towards the close of the last century even, abolition societies were lorpicd in these States hymen of the moat.exalted worth and influ ence. Attached .to those of Delaware, the leading men were Cæsar A. Rodney and Jamca A. Bayard. Among those ibelonging to the Maryland Society wore Messrs. Samuel Chase, Luther Martin, Ridgely, Buchanan and Wilkinson ; and of the Virginia Society, Messrs. Pleasants, McLegn and Anthony.— Pennsylvania Abolition There was also Society started at the same time, *f yvhicli Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Rush and John Jay were leading members ; and we believe that at the session of the first Congress a memorial was present ed, signed by Benjamin Franklin and others for the abolition of slavery. Theso wore all .conspicuous and honored men in the republic, but if they were alive now, no doubt tho same filth would be attempted to be thrown upon them that is cast upon the advocates of emancipation at the present day, for daring to question the claim that slavery institution, or that it is a blessing instead of a curse. The Virginia Society also addressed a memorial to Congress, in which they use the following language : " Your memorialists, fully aware that right eousness exalteth a nation, and slavery is not only an odious degradation, but an outrage ous violation of one of the most essential is a divine rights of human nature, and utterly repug nant to the precepts of tho Gospel, which breathes 'peace on earth and good will to men,' lament that a practice so inconsistent with true policy and the inalienable rights of men should subsist in so enlightened an age, and among a people professing that all mankind are, by nature, equally entitled to freedom." In the debates in Congress on the presenta tion of memorials from these societies, it was said : By Mr. Parsons of Virginia—"I hope, Mr. . Speakor, the petition of these respeotable peo ple will be attended to with all the readiness the importance of its abject demands ; and I •cannot help expressing the pleasure I feel in finding bo considerable a part of the commu nity attending to matters of such momentous «oncern to the future prosperity and happi ness of the people of America. I think it my duty, jtA a citizen of the Unioh, to espouse the r cause." By Mr. Jackson, of Georgia—"It is the fashiQn.of the day to f)avor the liberty of the slave." This feeling upon the subject continued and advanced, until Calhoun made the notable dis covery, that slavery was a blessing instead of an evil, and as cotton was brought more into requisition just About that time, the chivalry of the South had hut little difficulty in taking the balm to their consciences. Is Slavery a Divine Instltutlom t The name of the slaveholders' barbarities A recent number of the New is " Legion.' Orleans Era describes some instruments of torture which were discovered by Colonel Ilenks in the course of his investigations among the plantations. First among these was one found upon ths neck of ayoung woman, where it had beèn placed fot life by order of her owner. It was an iron collar, made to fit the neck, fastened by screw, with three up right prongs about eighteen inohes in length, (to each of which was attaohed a small bell. The " beauty" of this instrument was that the wearer could never rest her head upon the ground, uiul tlo- hulls kt p: hss awake by their continual tinkling. Ae next instru ment was a heavy i tached, tho gag ooming up from und*r the chin into the mouth, The next, a piece of iron armor to be worn on the leg, causing the wearer to Jimp At every step, and effectually preventing Jjjs runpjng away. The next, a king with an iron bar weighing sixty pounds, the m£fl yrbo wore it being oompelled to keep up with the other hands in the field. In view of these facts so well authenticated, who will say that shcvfcry 1s not bàfbOrism, and the fruitfrl parent oS cruelty and inhumanity f collar with a 'gag at T|e Appesranoe of Fort Nuiuter. A Morris Island letter of the 3d, thus des cribes the appearance of Fort Sumter : To describe it in a few words is that of a hugo honeycomb, manufactured by gigantic bees for the gratification of the gods, The only, part of the fort which bears any traces of iden tity, is the south west angle, where a few re maining arches, considerably disfigurtd by the showers of iron hail Which have assailed them are the only evidences of former archi tectural ornament. The balance of the south ern wall exposed so long to our powerful and well directed guns, is a mountain of pulverized brick and mortar, without a line to indicate shape or a single feature of design. The eastern or sea-face, which is exposod to tho fire both of our ships and shore batteries, is perhaps, tho most demolished of all ; battered and hanged and crushed worse than the coun tenance of any prize-fighter who had been hammered to a jelly-; the great hole that yawns at the sea, as if it would swallow even her if she would but leap into its throat, seeming like the entrance to Chaos. Into tho rough heaps of deprls our shells go plunging, here crumbling a pile of stuff away and there throwing up another to be scattered may bo by the very next shot. The walls are now perfectly capable of be ing scaled, from two to two and a half feet having been shot away within the past eight days. , r The Removal of Rosecrans. The reason or reasons for the removal of Gen. Rosocran8 from the command of the Army of the Cumberland, continue to bo a subject of speculation. C. D. Brigham, the Chattanooga correspondent of the Tribune, in correcting a statement of that paper pla cing the responsibility of planning the Chiok amauga campaign upon other shoulders than tbi?* 0 °f Rosecrans, says : "Th^ responsibility and the 'original agen cy in inaugurating the unsuccessful opera tions' which faulted in the defeat at Chicka mauga belongs Trolly to Gen. Rosecrans.— The furthest that Government, in reply to his application to aQ extended campaign, would consent to his going, was Dalton. But he pushed on, notwithstanding, chafing and complaining that the authorities ^t Washipgton restrained him. In thfl next few days he is overwhelmed with defeat—a dear penalty for disobedience and misjudg* .Gen. H allée k has written a letter ment. distinctly denying the responsibility of that campaign, find placing on the shoulders of Qen. Rosecrans, where it solely belongs, a fact as well attested, .and in a thousand dif ferent -ways, as the fact that the campaign waa badly mpuaged i|t almost every partic ular. " Thorc were almndpnt reasons for tho re moval of General Rosecrans, now almost uni versally .conceded hero, for giving some of which the tim c ha» not come, since by so do ing information no loss valuable to the ene my than 'interesting to the loyal reader would be divulged. Enough to know that the v.eçy highest considerations dictated the change, no less than the safety of the.army itself, and the fruits of its previous campaigns." Throe Thing* For the Rebel» to Think There are recent events that may woll com mand tho serious contemplation of the rebel on. leaders. I. The last hope ef aid and comfort from Northern discussions, as demonstated by late elections in the loyal States, is gone—a hope that the rebels have greatly relied upon. II. The final refusal of the British Gov ernment to receive Mr. Mason in an official capacity, and its seizure of the rebel rams building in the Mersey ; and the fact, that the British peoplo support theso measures, as shown in tho public opinion evoked by Mr. Beecher's speechers. III. The seizure, by order ef the French Emperor, of the six rebel rams building in French ports. This act must be especially discouraging, as Mr. Slidell had been accred ited with great influence at the French Court, and the Emperor has generally appeared ini mical to the loyal cause, and seeking pretexts to intervene. Tho support of Franco was the last hope of the rebel magnates. One of the Richmond Administration papers went so far os to say : "We must have the aid of France, and can pay for it." Thus the rebellion now standB ■ alone—be reft of the sympathy of the world, and its in ternal weakness confessedly increasing daily. Does any man in his senses doubt that it will be finally and utterly suppressed, and the Union restored? Am Affecting Scene. James Southerland, who has been on trial at Indianapolis for four days for killing Rod dy A. Small, was acquitted on Thursday last. His wife and children were in court at the time. After the announcement of the ver dict there followed a scene, says the Indian apolis Journal, not ofteuod witnessed in a court room.—The prisoner that was—a pris oner now no longer—fell upon his knees, and lifting his eyes toward heaven, uttered earnest prayer of thanksgiving and praise to the God whose justice and mercy had been so wonderfully manifested in him. The prayer was irresi8tably eloquent, and when Amen was pronounced, Amen came back in response from every part of the room, and there were tears in every eye. All rose to their feet ; the acquitted man advanced and took each juryman by the hand with a fervant "God bless you ! You have saved an innocent man from shame aud disgrace ; you have taken a foul Btaiu from my name. God bless you 1" And to the prosecutor, whose conduct in the ease commands admiration from all fairness and honesty, he gave.a oordial ^God bless you 1" The old white-haired father, whose firm trust had supported the son in the dark hours of trial, now melted into tears of joy that his son was au^piitted of guilt, and his own good name remained untarnished. The Judge, wiping his eyes of the tears that unbidden, ordered the Sheriff to adjourn the foorfc . .*• ' an 0UB6 Mlicsllanssn» News, Emancipation or thk Serfs in Russia.— The following fs an extract from a letter writ ten by a gentleman whois at present travel ing in Russia : "Tho emancipation of the Berfs is no 'sham/but a great, and noble reality, car ried through with a caution an 1 courage that do equal honor to tho head and heart of the Emperor. It is scarcely possible to measure the grandour of peaceful revolution, by which nearly 40,000,000 people aro raised from a condition closely akin to slavery to the level of free men of other oivilized States. This great act is consummated with comparative ly little suffering and largo prospects of fu ture advantages to tho nobles and proprietors of land, save only those whose estates should come under an incumbered estates act. The emancipated serfs arc already displaying a degree of intelligence and industry that sur prises their former owners ; establishing schools, laying out hoarded money on lands and tenements, and in many other respects showing great intelligence and sagacity." Strength of the Rebels. —A careful cM lection of reports from different well informed quartors shows the entire strength of the rebel army, on this side of tho Mississippi (that is of all that is of any use), to be, in round numbers, as follow's ; Bragg's army, 75.000 ; Leo's army, 40,000 ; Beauregard's army, 20,000 ; Johnson's army, (in roar of Vicksburg and Memphis), 18,000 ; at Wil mington, 10,000 ; at Mobile, 6,000 ; scattering (1,000 at Savannah, small forces at Lynch burg, Oordon8ville, and at different arsenals and other points in the interior, in all not over) 20,000. Practically, then, we aro con fronted to-day by not over one hundred and ninety thousand men. We can meet them with an efficient Mobile force of, at the very least, three hundred and fifty thousand. Recent Rebel Disasters. —A cotemporary sums them up concisely as follows : 1. The failure at Chattanooga to flank and starve out our army. 2. The depreciation of the rebel loan in Eng land to 30 per cent discount. 3. The refusal of the English Government to permit the rebel rams to sail. 4. The same thing in France. 5. The Canada plot. 6. Bank's arrival at Brownsville. 7. The success of tho Union party in every Northern State. * 8. Rebel success nowhere. Gov. Gilmore, of New Hampshire, believes that patriots should show their faith by their works. In his recent proclamation calling for the Siftto quoto of troops he makes a point ed appeal to one class of his fellow-citizens. "It is very' evident," he says, "that some who have stayed at home and talked war, must, under this call, report themselves for duty. It is evident that those who have deprecated and opposed the recent draft, must now show their faith in volunteering by their works." The correspondence between Gen. Meredith, our Commissioner for the exchange of prison osu, and Mr. Quid, the Rebel Agent is pub lished. In one of his letters, Gen. Meredith, plumply charges the Rebel Goverment with putting paroled prisoners in the field bofore they were exchanged, especially in the case of the officers and men of the Vicksburg gar rison. Mr. Ould tartly denies the accusation, but his loss of .temper is prima facie evidence of want of candor. A Richmond (Va.) paper, Nov. 3d, says; "Yesterday the barkeepers in the city gene rally put up the price of plain whisky to $1.50 per Jr ink, and the fàct was silently conveyed to tho apprehensions and purses of customers by printed placards posted behind the bars. Somo of the retailers talk of establishing a guage by which the prices will be increased in proportion to the whisky jn the glass which, will be bad for heavy " sluggers." The steamer Convoy left Fortress Monroe on Saturday for City Point, with a cargo of provision for our prisoners in Richmond and its vioinity. Gov. Morton, of Indiana, has forw arded 500 suits of clothes to the agent for the Indiana soldiers in Richmond, with ' an urgent request that he may be permitted to send provisions to them also. There is a man who regularly visits one of the river towns and buys up all the cats he can find, taking them to New York. The country people are in doubt whether they are bought for the furriers or the sausage makers. The Mariposa property, about seventy square miles, yielded gold to the value of $412,290 in 1862, and with the present im provements in machinery over a million anu ally is hereafter expected. The great Northwestern Fair at Chicago is drawing to a close. It has been visited by 40.000 people, and the receipts will be $50,000. The largest amount received in one day (5th inst.), is $6,786. General Schenck has suppressed the Even ing Transcript , published at Baltimore. It was commenced two weeks ago by Mr. W. H. Nelson, a former proprietor of the Daily Gazette. Among the votes for Governor polled in Boston at the last election was one for Jeffer son Davis. A good many up this way would not hesitate to vote the same way. Both branches of the Maryland Legislature have a clear majority in favor of calling a Convention to make Maryland a free State. A new weekly paper, entitled tho Colored Citizen, and edited by colored people, has just been started in Cincinnati. Out of 8,346 shot and shell fired at Sumter during the late bombardment, 7,700 struck. They are in advance of us at Washington. Snow fell there yesterday. MARRIED.

The magnitude of the objects at stake, paramount in a moral view, ir; equalled only by the wonderful display of mili tary power, developed by the progress of science in modern implements of war; of steam, in the rapid transportation of armies and supplies by railroad and water ; of tho telograph, in the instantaneous trans mission of news from headquarters in the field to the national headquarters ; and of the balloon in reconnoitering the enemy's position, enabling the prompt concentration of mighty forces. This won derful panorama of moving armies, of commotion in the commorce and industry of the world, while tho attention of all nations is absorbed by the deadly attack on the institution of Republican freedom, the last hope of tho oppressed in all countries and climes, all conspire to fill every chapter with exoiting nar ratives, every pa* 5 grapli, with valtable information and every sentenco w»t.h important fpets.
