Wednesday's Dispatches.
The Government al Washingion con
tinues to act vijorouslr. It beipp- under
6tord lhat the rebtl states 1 ave made
p i ffcrs to purchase vessels in Kngland
and o'-her European countries, the admin
istration has noiitiedthe diplomatic corps
lhat no such purchase will be respected,
no matter under what flag the vessels may
tail. The diplomatic coips have been al
so notified that if ar.y commissioner, or
minister, from the seceded states be re
ceived by any European Power, the Gov
ernment will not hes'cate to break off all
diplomatic relations with tuch power
will recall the United Slates minister al
such Court, nnd will dismiss the reprtsen
tative of that power retident in Washing
on. It is thus evident that our Gjvt fo
ment is determined to deal with ihe south
ern confederacy in every way as a rebel
lious portion of this republic. At Balti
more two Philadelphia .companies seized
one thousand live hundred muskets nnd
'our tl.ous.mJ pike, ttored iu tin unoccu
pied houe, and took them to Ft MeHcn
ry. Information was received nt the war
dtpartmit't lhat some of the rebels were
)ing to wesurn Virginia to subdue the
Unionists. Additional force is ordend
for the blockade nt Charleston. The vote
on secession in Virginia was the mi rest
farce nil the rebels from the south btit it
pertbiUed to vole. 1 he secession sympa
thizes of sourthern Indiana are causing
sonie trouble, and several have been no
tified to either dry. up or leave. Gin's
Harney aud Tr ce, the latter command
ing the Missouri state forces, have issued
a joint manifesto lo the pet pie, declaring
a common object, that of restoring peace
and good order, end requiring subordina
tion to the laws of the General and Stale
governments. It is understood tha'. Gn.
Price will disband all ihe state forces and
lake prompt and effective measures to in
sure full protection to all classes of citi
zens. All complaints of violence or ap
prehensions are hereafter to be made to
hi ii, and if he fails to afford the necesa
ry relief, the United Slates forces will bo
used. The southern confederacy has es
t.tblished a blockade at Memphis, pro
hibiting the passage of upward bound
boats. W. II. Russell, the corret pondenl
of the London Times, arrived qlls'i w Or
leans on the 21st inst. Theic is a rumor
that as soon as hostilities are commenced
by the government in the direction of Nor
folk and Ivlchmond, the rebel forces nt
Harper's Ferry will march into Pennsyl
vania. Northern people are piohibited
from traveling in Virginia, under pains
of arrest and imprisonment. The Secre
tary of Slate has given notice to Mexico
nnd other s'.ates that the Monroe doctrine
will bo carried out to the letter, and lhat
nothing in the shape of foreign interven
tion will bo tolera'cd or submitted lo for
n single hour.

Gen. Hit ler takes command of lite force

There are four other vessels, now afloat,

secession violators of the laws of the coun

Three New Brigadier Generals.
The Was' ingb n correspondent of the
Philadelphia Press wri'es :
The two new brigadier generals, for
the regular army, are Maj r Mcl.Kwcll,
U.S. A., promote d, and Andrew II. 11- Od
er, of Pennsylvania, talen from private
life. The latter will henceforth be a
member t f the permanent military estab
lishment of our country. He will be com
polled to throw aside law and politics,
and devote his intellect and his life to the
Re-public. Ii, is supposed that another
brigadier general will bo taken from Ohio
irl tlie petson of Colonel Sherman, feir
merly of the army, but lately superinten
dent of the mili a-y school of Louisiana,
which he resinee! when that State seced
ed. He is the brother of the Ho i. John
Shermnn, (he successor of Secretary

Confederate Stater, wai ni'Cted. An

"Andy" Johnson Defying the
Rebels."
The Washington X.tiional Republican
of Saturday fays :
!Ve have heard reliably from Senator
Johnson B1 lute as last Monday, when he
was GO miles wist of Knoxvillo, on l.U
canvass of the S ate, which votes upon
ll.u rpicsiiun of secession. Mr Juhusou
and his friends were at thai da'e, hopeful.
"The st) lo of Mr. Johnson's canvass
ing may be judged of from the eommence
mmi of his speech nt Cleveland, Teun.,
where threats tig linst him hud been large
ly indulged in. He told the crowd lint
he 'ditl rot come he re to be shot, but to
shoot,' that if the re? was to be a light, he
and his friends were ready for it, and that
he preferred to finish up the lighting be
fore his speech.
Nobody coming forward to fight, the
intrupid S.mator proceeded to speak, and
by the lime be had finished, nineteen
twentieths of the audience were with him.
He lo!d them, among either things, that
Ji fl'. Davis, and the Governor of the St tie
ought to be hanged and would be hanged
at that cot far distant period when the
jtidic'til power of the Government could I o
brought lo bear upon them."
"Invading Southern Soil."
We hear a great amount of clamorous
indignation from the Southern press and
people about the troops in service of the
Otneral Government being about to "in
vade Southern soil." This is all idle
gammon. The forces of tho General
Government cannot '"invade" a S ate.
1 In y have a perfect right to go pnd come
every where, on every loot o' soil cover
ed by the jurisdiction of the Federal Uni
on. The General Government is not nn
alien nor intruder as lo the Sia'es. Its
sway extends over them all alike, and its
laws, officers and armies are at home
everywhere throughout the common
domain. If it were not 60 (here would
be no na'ional government.
It is just as absurd to talk of the gov
ernment troops invading tho Smth." as
to lalk of British troops "invading" Liv
erpool, or the French armv "invading"
LangueJoc, or Ihe militia of the State of
Ohio "invading" Hamilton county.
This stupid idea of the just and lawful
government cf the country corni ting an
"invaiion" whenever it sets on foot a
movement to execuie its laws, could have
it i birth nowhere but id tho ruaggalty and
seditions braia of a tcf scionist. dnc ii

be worth nbout ns much as Continental

an I an utter suspension of business will
inevitably pioduce such are-u't. A few
of the business men understood this, bin
the people genrrnlly.who aro unacquaint
ed with the first principles of political
economy, see nothing to mar the future
tjloiy ot the commercial metropolis ol the
Southern Confederacy, as liny fondly
imsg'tie Charleston is destined to be.
SOUTH CAROLINA ARROGANCE.
It seems lhat to be a citizen of South
Carolina is more than to be a ci i;;i-u of
ihu Confederate Slates of America. In
Charleston, tho Sou ht rn Confederacy is
always put second to Sjuth Carolina. "I
am ft South Carolinian, I would havo you
to understand," is the common form of
statement when they speak of citizenship.
They delicately give the short sound oft,
as it Sou:h Curo'ltnia vv.ts mure than all
the re st of the world.
There is no love kut between South
Carolina and Georgia, for both aro to be
Kmpire Siates, This sentiment of supe
riority has been nursod until it has be
come ingrained into society. They look
upon all Northerners with contempt. The
stories which we hear that they think one
South Carolina soldier is a match for tive
or ton Northerners, aro ro. fabrications.
They believe that such is tho fact, and
no ica-oniiig can und.ctivu them, and
tln-re is a g n- rd desire lo show the world
that tin v are nblo to mako their words
good. 'J hey are ccidident of the issue of
the eoUts', (we sp-iik ttf thu maesi'S).
Tin y lionest'v feel that they are right.
They b lie.ve thai God lueiks approvingly
upon tin ir course. They think that they
are defending their tire: ides. They ilo
not seem to know that thore'is nnihing
else at stake, nnd think that tin North is
only bent on subjugating them to p li;ic
al slavery.
They aro exceedingly bitter on the
Notthern democrats, and pr dse the abo
litionists ns being consilient. Northern
democrats are traitors. They have bitter
curses for Gen. Scott and Col. Anderson
Although when, after the surrender of
Sumter, it was reported that Auderson,
hi ing disgusted vnb the inactivity of thu
fleet, would resign his commission, there
were piofuso praises of his heroism and
ability, and also when it was reported ilia.
Scott had resigned, there were no btuJa
tions too great, bul now he is "an imbe
cile old fuss and feathers." Our inform
ant says that htlely the cry has nol boon,
"Cotton is King." but JticT "We tmly
want to be let alone." He says lhat no
one who has not resided there can have
an adequate idea of the extravagant no
tions they entertain. They are such as
inig'it oocuj y the brains of lunatics.
THE LADY DAVIS TO TAKE THE NIAGARA.
A tug has boon armed wiih two guns,
and named the "Lady PaviM." Our in
ftnr.ant says tint it is ennfi lontlj believ
ed that thin miniature ship-of-war will be
able to borer a few shot holes be low the
water lino through the sides of the Niag
ara or Minnesota, whoii they nppear off
the harbor, and piove more th in a match
for either ship ! The crow ef tin Lady
Davis have been sworn in, and the crafc
is looke d upon with much pride.
A GOOD STORY.
The Chatlestonians tell a g story at
their own expense, which well illustrates
the want of dicipline.
A company was ketping gu ird at ihe
Arsenal. Tne colonel of ine regiment
passing by saw the soutiuel iaatteuiive to
Ids duty. Ho took n way Ids gun, and
then entere d the arsenal. A subordinate
officer was concocting a cocktail.
" Where is the captain ?" tho colonel
asked.
" Up stairs." ' ' '
" Please say to him that I want to see
him."
, " Well, after I take a drink," said the
subaltern.
After swallowing his toddy ho wont up
stairs to the captain.
, " The colonel is down siuirs.an 1 wants
to see you, captain.
"Well, if he wants to see me more
than I do him, jusltell him to walk up."
said the captain who was lying on a bed.
The colonel went up stairs, and found
the captain taking things easy. " Sir,
you ought to bejdrilling your company.
Your sentinel doa't know how to do his
duty, und I ttok his gm away from
him."
" Well, I daresay he will be much
obligod to yen. I reckon he was lirod of
carrying it."
HOW THEY FIRED A GUN.
Another good s'ory is told, which has
not found its way lato ihe Charleston pa
pers: The light boa' which wis ekptured.hns
been anchored btthe mouth of the creek
whirh leatis to Fono river. Two guns
have been placed on bow J. One aiming
down the week is kept Laded with ibot,
while the other pVnung towards the city
is used lo fire a u oining and evening gun.
Not long sine',' when 'thu sunrise pun was
fired, ft twelve-pound ball ripped through,
a negro's shanty, nnd lod red in a hotel,
greatly to the consternation of an old ne
gro and several boarders. The crew of
the lightboat did not discover that tlie
boat lnd turned with the tide during the

Bii-ims ff all kind-i was entirely proa
ttale. Our informant met large quanti
ties of proviionr going forward FoMth
from LoitiavillM, Ky. r i
Th'i noiro s wero quiet. A gentleman
fiom Augusta, Goorgia, said, a day or
two before our informant left, that if there
wore furthir call for military companies
from their vicinity, be would remore his
family from there for safely, This may
explain the n al feeling ot the people in
tegard lo thU maUer.
Our informant believes, (hat bcnealli
aM the manifested enthusiasm in behalf
of the re bel cause, the-re is a deep under
cur.uut of attachment still to the old
Union ; uud he believes that were a fed
eral fo:ce, strong enough to protect them,
tin own into Savannah, this Union feeling
would be at once displayed, and make It
self fi 1 1. As it now is, it is not.of course,
pmdtnt or safe for a man to show any
sympathy in that ditection. .
THE FEELING IN VIRGINIA.
There is a great difference in the feel
ings 1 1 Pouiti uaroiiniiins nna lrgtnians.
The residents of the Palmetto State are
angry, wiupish, overbearing, while thro'
oul Virginia there was a feeling of sad
ness. A member of tho Stato Conven
tion rcmaiked to our informant that no
pen coull eve r p3rtray the scene In the
Convention when the ordinance of seces
sion was passed. His oath of secrecy
would not let him divulge what took
place, but, if theie weie jubilant seces
sionists, there wero heart-broken men,
who still love d the old ll.ig. Our inform
ant says, and his words are worthy thj
attention of tho Government: "Let Gov
ernment do by Virginia as she has donn
by Matyland pur in tha troops, and
there will be men enough to cheer the
Slari and S ripr-s in Richmond 1
Tho attitude taken by Western Virgin
ia has staggered the secessionists. At
Richmond lie found 11 o same mistaken
idea prevalent concerning tho North, and
tho belief was still .prevalent lhat thero
would be a hirge pat ty who would yet
rise up in the NortU to fight against tho
Administration.
The Embarrasments of the Government.
The injustice and fol'y of most of the
censure cat upon the Government because
it tines ro'. move faster n prosecuting tho
war again.xt the rebel;;, nre easily 6een by
those who look. Wo have heretoforo
spoken generally of the difficulties th
authorities have to contend with In conso
ejuence of the presence of the traitors still
lofliu the service, who disguise their pur
poses as long ns possible, . with the view
of plavin'g into tho hands of the rebels to
the In 't moment. The following cases
illustrate this point: '
Win n il w;is decided to employ troops
for tho d-fonso of. tho Capital, S'.aff offi
cers, after remaining lorg enough -in tho
War Department to acquire as much
knowlet'ge as possible of the details, re
signed, to cai rj that knowledge into tho
camp of the enemy. ...'...
When t5 Norfolk Navy Yard was
found lo bo in danger, orders , were deep-itched'
from tho NaVy Department to
havo all vess-ola tnken out. Officers at
ui the Yard, secretly sympathizing with
sicus: ion, iirt prevuiued the execution of
the orders, on the ground thai it was not
necessary, and then resigned. Tbe
Navy Dep trtmnt ni being apprised of
this, instantly sent Commodore Paulding
down to save the property. But it wss
then too late. Ail that could then bo
doue was to destroy it, to prevent its fall
ing into ih.! hands of secessionists, nnJ
thai he did t fleeinally.
When the Seventh Regiment and tho
Massachusetts tro ips arrived at Annapo
lio, th'i Capital wus ti'most defenceless.
A Quartermaster wns ordered to go to
Annapolis fiom Washington, to hasten
their march. He went, as was supposed,
to execute his ruisMon, but instead of
bringing in the tbsued reinforcements, he
cwoly, at lv.c leisure, brought in h resig
nation. When the river steamboats were seiied
at Washington for Government use, they
we re se nt round io the wvy Yard to be
armed for service. Inynedivdy on their
ai rival, every officer in tho Yard but ono
resigned in order to stop the work.
These are but a few pages out cf a
whole volume of unwritten history. At
every step, for aahilo, the Government
was digged aud criplod by traitore, who
drew their pay aud effected loyalty so long
ns nothing was required of them.but who,
al the critical moment when their, services
were wanted, (deserted to the enemy
Through to the Mississippi.
