National Armories.
There are in tho United Siates twenty
five A i aerials and fo-r Armories for llit
manufacture of arrus. Of the Arsenals,
fourteen are in the fiee and eleven in the
lave State; and tight of the latter have
have been seiied. The gteat Arn;o ios
are at Springfield, Mass., and Alhgreny,
Pa. The greatest Arsenal furmeily, was
Watervliet, N. Y. All the Arsenals
make more or less of arms and tquipme nts,
but guns and cannon are only made at
certain places. C inron are cast by con
tract with the great foundries. The larg
est of these aru the West Poiut Foundry,
at Cold Spring, N. Y., aid the Allegheny,
Pa. The casting of ennnort is, of coursi ,
an immense labor and txp'.-nse. But it g
now brought to grent prtfeclion. In the
year 18fiG, no less thau 12) f the gra'
Columbiads were cast, clii.Hy at (he
foundries mentioned. In that y ar. fu;l
20,000 lifles and uiu kets wtre manufac
tured. To g've n idea of the great
manufacture of arras constantly going on,
we copy from an Ordinance Report the
number made in a Single year, mostly at
Springfield, Harper's Ferry and Alle
ghany :
122 C'olnmhinds.
41 Urotue Fields Guns and Howitiers.
21.3 H Rides, Muskets and Carbines.
1,313,362 Cartridges for small arms.
8,158 Stand lixed Ammunition for Artillery.
Martial Law.
Martial law, which we now hear spoken
of not unfrequently, suspends the opera
tion of the writ of haleax corpus ; enable?
p-.rsons charged with treason to bp Fum
ruarily tried by Court Martial, instt ad ol
Grand Jury ; justifies searches and seiz
ures of private properly, t nd the taking
possession of public highways and othei
maans of communication. Invo'virg the
highest exercise of sovereignly, it is, of
course, capable of great abuse, and is
only to be justified on emergencies of tht
most imperative and perilous nature.
From Louisana.
A letter written by a former re.-identof
New York, to his mother, dated A'ger
Ap-il 15, Sf.ys:
Owing to the disturbed s'ale of nfl'iirs,
there is an almost total suspension of
business, nnd more t Inn 'h ee-quar'ers ot
of the nu clianios of fhis jlncn nre now
idle, and have' been for mcntln p:i8f.
There is a great Heal of discontent nt
tho manner in which (tirdrs have bien
conJtieted. 'I he air horities fear an in
surrec'.iin in the ciiy of New Orleans
and the military are ordered to be ready
lo turn ou' at a moment's warn-ng.
The pnprs try to convey the idea to
the North tint the Sjirh is imanin o is in
favor of secess'oti. I may i-af !y sty,
that over four tilths are in lavor of ihe
Union. There is now great tx'.'itenu-ni
itlo ttthe war. Troops arc b i'' sent
to l engtcola am ta; '.li-yan be rau
Tin y have been t-n!isiiny(or trjing to
enlist) men for several monihp; but. by
even offering a bounty of S10, they have
been ui able to raise r regiment. They
have now calle 1 upon the o'.enteers militia
companies, and, under the excitement o'
t'e last ftw d ys, sev rl compainies have
volunteered their services, and are off for
Pensa-ola, where, I doubt not, many will
leave thtir hones.
The Massachusetts Dead.
We think few men read Gov. Andrews'
dispatch to the Mayor of Baltimore, re
questing him to care for the Massachu
setts d-ad "tenderly," and to send on their
remains for honored burial by the com
monwealth, without tears. Yes, those
bodies, battered and bruised by the bru
tal mob, are sacred. " Tenderness " is
not too gentle a word to bo used for the
care of them. From the plow and (he
fishing-boat, those hardy men; beaming the
names aud the memories of Concord and
Lexington, and Bunker Hill, came forth,
as their fathers did of old, to offer their
lives for Liberty's dear sake. Foremost
in the Second War of Independi nee, as
their forefathers wete in ihe Firs'.the very
day on which the men of L xington stain
ed the greensward with the first blood of
the llevjlution, saw the men of this g n
eration stain the streets of Baltimore wiih
the first blood of this greater struggle.
Alt honor, then, to tl oe humble men of
Massachusetts, the first victims in the new
war of Liberty. Unlike their ancestors,
they Hied far from home and native soil,
but like there, they died for their country.
Tl e whole nation owns them ; their names
shall be preserved in their country' roll
of honor.
Interesting from Harper's
A Sieubenville merchant, who visited
Harper's Ferry two or three days since,
reports that there were 5,000 Virginia
to'diers there, and that cannon were
planted on all the surrounding hills. The
arms in ti e arsenal were stacked up and
partially damaged by fire ; hut the ma
chine shops and machinery of great val
ue, worth millions of money, were in good
condition, and full forces were employed
in the shops as formerly, except those
buildings the Virginians were taliog dowi
i h the mtchiuery and removing to Rich
mond. The operators employed were
turning out three hundred stand of arms
daily, and making other munitions of war
just as speedily and successfully as if the
shops were in the possession of the Gene
ral Government.

Total Destruction by Earthquake of the

Wilh feelings of deep regret 1 have to

certificate that the mails were lost the ines
seogt r replied, "There was no or e h ft to
