He a s she stnrt d fiom New Yoik on ihe It h of March, a a lrop ship, to transport U. S troops (on TtXisto a Northern prt. On the 26th, they ar rivtd at hraioa San )go, where there were piles of shot and shell, several large field pieces moun'ed, and amuni ion wag ons standing ato'it, which hud ben s'o len from the U. 8 Oovt rnment. Oi 20ih eciv'd orders from the U.S command-nofli-jtr nt Indiar.o'a to proceed l- that pliice On I2dt of April they were or dertd to proceed to Iira ) Snn J igo.and to transport the troop that were encamp ed ou the M. xicmi frontier to InJimioia. but on a.iriving there iltey found the troops t mbarkf d on a Texas steamer. On the 1 3ih i hey went to Indianola, where they i.iiRoined themsflves as siife as though ly ing in New York harbor. On the I7.h they were visited by the pilot, who desired them to be ready to receive troops at any hour, d ly ot night. He said they were to finive in the stenm er Fashion, and were then thirty miles distant. About five o'clock in the morn ing tbey received n wspapers from a Gal veston steamer, in whi'.h were r p rted the fitll of Fort Sumter, and the procla mation of the President. The usual rou tine of business went on in prepaiing the vessel for, sea, none of them suspecting the rascally trick which was pr ptring for their capture. At five minutes after twelve, midnight, of the I7th, a fteamer hailed the watch on deck, nnd said they had three hund red and odd troops lor hem, and theii haggpge would come by another steamer. All hands assisted to get the troops on board. They gave the troops all manner of assistance to get on board, nnd when they were nearly all aboard they found that th -y were Tex-ts rebels instead ol U S. troops. Capt. Howes cried, "My Go J I I have lost my ship l" A person step ped up te him and said, " I am Op'ain Van Dorn. I command here. This ship is priz f to the Confederate States." It seems that Van Dorn was sent from Mont gomery to Galveston on the I2ih of April to inise troops to capturo the vessel. Mr. McGiath says that two colored men who were servant or assistant stew ards in the ship, were captured with the vessel. Their names are Levi Man, aged about fif.y years, who has a wif and fami;y in Nev York, and Walter Good year, aged hbout 30, who has a wife and family in New York. These two colored m. n were tnken to prison and afterwards sold into Mavery. The Confederate scoundrels were anx ious (o get McGrath io join them, and told I itn '.hty would ".et liiin the o-ition of boatswain's mate if he tould do so.

The announcement reached us the oth er d iy tint the Legislature of Missouri had appropriated one million of dollars fo.- the defense of the S ate. This Slate never had a million of dollars in its treas ury, and it has p ltd the interest on its debt for several years pat by selling new bonds, thin getting deeper into debt. It lias only saved itself from protest in New York on the 1st of July coming by a forc ed loan fr.tu banks, ex o ted tinder fear of losing their cl arters, and now it appro pria es a million of dollars "for the de fence of the S ae !'' Defence against what ? The Governor sent an insolent restonse to the President's call for vol unteers to defend the Government, and hese-ks to p'uoge Missouri into the vor lex of secession. The New York Times wisely suggests th it if she wo.thl be hon est, let her send the "million of dollars" approuria'ed by her 1 g't;U'ure for trea s nabie purposes, to New York, and in vest it in her own discredited bonds a' 40 cents on Ihe dollar, thus reducing her in debtedness two and a half milliutis nf dol lars. Her "defence" will be cared for. as of old, by the Federal Goverrment, with out its costing her people it cent. Good for Tennessee. Advices from Nashville state that on Tuesday of lust week the Union State Convention in session there, (Hon, Win II. Polk, presiding) unanimously nomi nated ex Govert or WiPivn B. Campbell for Governor, on an unconditional Union platform. He commanded the T- unessee troops in the battle of Monterey, wi h great distinction. The convention is san guine of his election in August mx by an overwhelming majority. The position ou which he was nominated is, that the act of si cession lecently adapted by the Tennessee Legislature was one of pos.tive and undeniable usuip ition and treachery to the State, as well as to the General Government : and that the principal men concerned in its adoption, including Gov ernoi L-ham G Harris, deserve and shall hang at the end of a rope. Gov. Camp bell, Senator Johnson, and other able fpehkers intend to make an active can vass, and we trust they will bo success ful. If tntrgy, ho ivity and intrepidity can secure success, their triumph is sure. The St. Louis Affair. The stories concerning the sad occur rence following the capture of the seces sion troops at St. Louis, are of course con flicting. It is certain that our troops fir ed upon his mob, and that fome innocent persons were killed. It is equally cer tain that many of Ihe mob were armed with pistols, and came out to fight the troops. They nmused themselves for a while by thiowing dirt and sand into the faces of the soldiers, afterwards saluted them with brickbats, and finally fired pis tols into the ranks. The troops then re sponded with ila ir minie ball-). The de tailed accounts of the St. Louis pipers do not ii atei tally diner fioai the brst tel egraphic report.

These Regiments will serve for three yearj, and will be the men relied on by the Government to deft a', the ene my A Rttiment of Cavalry will also be rectived, but it has not been assigned. Secretary Chase has ordered the stop page of all kinds of supplies passing Cario for the rcb"IHous States, which class may now be said to include all the Southern S a'ea below that pornt, e xs pt Kentucky. The steps juU taken by Aikan.-as aud Tennessee will give increased interest to all movements on the Mississippi, and render an attack upon Cario more proba ble. Boston furnuhed the first complete Regiment under the Presidtn'ts call for three months volunteers, and now she leads again in off ring the first Regiment for the full term of three years. It makes little difference wi h the gallant friends of Freedom in old Masaichusetts what duty the government requires for it de fense, they are on hands every time. No wonder the secessionists want to get rid of such men.

St Litis. May 14 Omrral Harhvy publi-hes this mort.ing an address lo the people of Missouri, In which he calls at lention to the iidliUry b.ll receinlv passed by the Ltisla ttre, wl.ich he reofjs as an indiitct seces-ion ordinance, manifest ly unconstitutional, and ought no' to be U)hl I by the good cl ii'-tm of Missouri. He sny." Wl,a tvir may be the termin ation of the present condi ion of things in re-p ct lo the cot' on Slab a, Missouri must share the destiny of the Union. All her ma'erial intemu point to this resuh, and so imp irtant i this regarded to ihe great interest of the country, that I venture the opinion of the- U S Oorernmnt, if nr eessaiy. will becxerbd lo retain Missouri in ih" Union." Sp- aki- g of Ca-np Jackson, he says, "the names of 'Davi' and 'Beauregard maiked its main avenu- s ; that a ho ly of mn oigmi"d in the inf iests of ihe'se Oi'siontsta have been received there op n ly heaiing tli dies sn bailee disiin- liUhing the array of the so called South ern Confederacy, and leavta the people to diaw their own inferences of the c'tariw t r and ultimate put p. me of ihe etiismp- men;. lie states, itoev r, that there are many good and loval men in the camp. wno were in no mai.m'r rcspons tile for its ireafonable character. In conclusion, he says, Disclaiming ull desire or intention to interfeio with the preiogatives of the State of Missouri, or with the functions of i s Kxeomive, yet I regard it my plin path of du'y lo express to the people in rei-p c'ful but decided langu ge that within the field or scope of my command the supreme law of the land must and shall bo mainia'ned, nnd no uh'eifu.e whatever, whether in forms of hgislaiive acts or otherwise, can be per mitted to harrass or oppress thb good, law abiding people of Missiuii.

Harney. The Minie Rifle. The first rifle in vogu in France was the so called pillar r'fle of thouvenin, but the invention of Mr. Minie is one which has practically revolutioniz-d the fire arms of the present day. Ihe improve ments made by Mr. Minie are coi, fined almost wholly to the form of the project ile, and have very little reference to that of the gun out of which H is fired. The ball is of an oblong conic il foim, some thing like an acorn withcut its tups ; but instead of beir.g t-olid, this cone is hol lowed on, at the bise into n tup-like form. The advantages of this form of projectile are that it ofltrsless le I tance to the n:r than a round ball wou'd, nnd i hat having its ctn'tr of gravi y in its foremost pin t, it h is no tendency to turn over in iis rl ght ; but iti chief merit, in a n i!i:ary point of iew, is ih.it wi.h it the rilh: can be loaded as easily ai the ordi nary smooth-bored gun, the forcing of ihe ball into ihe gtotve.s of tha bin el boing effected by lite g inpoivder and ml by the ramrod. The I, i m of the rifle proper to these conical missiles differs very li. t' e from tho'e ucd with those used with the old fpherical bullet, except that a three grooved gun, and i". is still an unsettled question whether four grooves would not be better tl an three. With this weapon the 6oldiercun make better practice at five hundred, or even one tl crasand J'ards. than he could iih the o d musket at oi e or two hundred yards. Let Justice be Done. Undtr the last Administration, as will he reincrr bered, Capt. Girdner who w s in command at Fort Moultrie, was re moved, and Major Anderson appointed to that post. It was said at t'te time that Cspf. Gardner was su'p cttd of not being true to the Goverment, hence the charg We are ph a ed to see thi t this char 'e of disaffection is contradicted, and that his removal was effected by the then Secre tary of War, Floyd, in the hope of find it'g in Major And' rson a more pliant in strument for his tnasor.able purro es. The Rot heater Union publl hes a stale ment which f ays that before he was iians f rred frm Fort Moultrie, Capt, fl rdner repeatedly ca'ltd on Floy 1 for more men and provisions, but could not gt them. Instead, and irs'alment of workmen were tun'., ostensibly to repair Fort Siimte-,but really to weaken it. Capt. Gardner meanwhile ra-magul to get s;x months, iiroiisions thrown into the Fort without 'ioyd's knowledge, through tin influence of Commissa y-Genernl Taylor, an! the Secretaiy of Wa- finding how imtactx able a man he had p'tUed in charge of the fort, ordered him away, and sent An derson in his pi ice, whose sy npuhies with the South he considered sufficiently strong to m ike the surrrn ler on demand inevitable. How Flojd niiscalcula'ed, events h ive shown; but for the abi i y to ho'd out so long, Anderson was indebted to the finesse practiced by Gardner. Distress of Nations. The last Lon Ion Review contains an article) on the "Distress of Na'ions." In dia is the scene of a desolating famine, after having gone through a desolntirg re bellion.

'I he Governor and suthori it s of Miaouii, refuse all aid to these noble men.

Fellow Citizens in the Free States : Placed on an alvanced post of liberty in the present s'ruggle for the mainten ence of our government, we have, in obe dience to Ihe call of our President, or ganizd the four regiments of volunteers from Missouri. As citizens of a State whocs first ex cu ire is, as you well know, opposed to the Government of the United S a'es, we, as a ma ter of course, canmt exprct support from him or the State gov ernment for furthering the purposes of our Federal Government. We are, there fore, comp lied to anDnal to the sympa thies of our fell .w-citiz-ns in the free S'ates, who have, with unprecedented un animity, come to the support of our Gov ernment, for the necessary means of pro viding our first equipment. Many of our men are desiitude of the means to pur chase the necessary uniform?,blankets,(feo. Having no claim on our Oeneral Govern ment uniill nfier three months service, we appeal to the sympa by of tur Union loving fellow-citizens in the free States for the neccstary assistance andsupport.fully s Uisfied that a p trt of that patriotic liber ality so freely shown lo their own volun teers, will not be withheld from xts. An ticipating such sympathy of our Federal Government in this remote and important post of the great West, against treason and rebellion, in order that the wishes of the patr'o's and Union-loving men of this country may soon be fulfilled, and that re bellion be forever crushed, and the caus of .-ightand justice be triumphant over treason and secession. Gov. Gustavus Koerner, of Belleville, Illi'iois, has kindly consented to act for us as receiver and diaburserj and, without consultation, we feel at liberty to ask Isaac Sherman, Esq., and Sigismund Kaufman, of the aity of New York, Evans It 'gers, E-q , of Philadelphia, and Judge Thomas Russell of Boston, to act in our be half ia these cities.

All papers friendly to the objects of Lis publication, will ro-ifer a favor by copying it Into the -tr columns, The Position of Cairo. A writer in the Blade says Cairo is built upen a very narrow neck of land lying betwe n the Ohio and Mississippi rivt rs at their junction. Tha lard on which the city i built, is very low, belng only six fee t above low water mark. It is entirely surrounded by a levee or em bankment of earth from fifteen to forty feet high. This emb inkment is. six and a half uiiles long, having three miles on each river and one half mile across, and paved with stones all around on the out rdde from lop toloMom, to prevent wash ing awy. Although this embankment is forty feet hijjh, the water rose within fix inches of the top in the Spring of 10 68. In times of high wa'er Cairo is sur rounds d by water from fifteen to forty feet above its streets, the water running across the upp r end from the Ohio into the Mississippi. The Kentucky is still lower, being em'y four feet above )ow w iter with a dense forest and very swam py for four or five miles back, apd could not be occupied ly troops at any time. The only f oint from which the city of Cairo can be seen i Bird Point, on the Mistouri hide, about one and a half miles Suu.li-west of Caiio and directly in front of ihe mouth of the Ohio river It Is the terminus of the Cairo St Fulton railroad, and is the only biga poi t o! land on hat side of the river for many miles, and ii snrroiinded by a Swamp also. The tel egraph announces that that point is to be occupied by Federal troops, which will give them three Batteries commanding each river one at Mound City, three miles above Cairo on the Ohio, one oa each rivet at ihe North end of tho city, and one al the South end, and one oa Bird Point. lt will be impossible for boats to pass, ard the eity cannot be tak en by thi rebels. - A lawyer in San Antonio, Texas, writes lo a New Yoik merchant that ihe merchants of the former place are nearly all rp(.oed to the stoon tiiovemenU, which has al.o ruinej them. .They are left with targe st.cks oa their Laud, with cu,' purchasers sod laonsj."
