THE WAR.
KA.TEST ISEWS!
Washington, Nov. 18.
The National Intelligencer, of this
• morning, contains nn elaborate article
I fully justifying the capture of Mason and
' Slidell. It cites authorities to show that,
Tinder the acknowledged law of nations,
Capt. \\ ilkes was author, zcj to board
the English steamer and demand the de
i livery of persons charged with rebellion
i Hgainst the government. It is believed
here that this r rticla foreshadows the.
1 ground which will be taken by the State
Depaitment.
A gentleman who l as just arrived here
from Richmond brin.s 200 letters from
the federal prisoners in that city, ail
franked by Congressman Ely. The peo
ple of Richmond are reported to be in
great alarm, and are exceedingly anxious
for the future. The inpid and heavy
plans of the government lead '.hern to
i salutary reflection.
Col. Kerigan’s icgiment having been
thoroughly weeded, is now in excellent
condition.
Several clerks in the Land Office have
been no’ifie 1 of charges of disloyalty
against them by the Potter Investigating
Committee.
Col. Harding, of Missouri, Las made
an announcement by which the three
months home guar s of that State, mus
tered into sen ice under authority of Gen.
Lyon will be paid.
George I). Kellogg, of Chicago, has
' been appointed Assistant Adjutant Gen
era! of Volunteers, with the rank ot Cap
tain, and ass gue-I to Gen. Stanley's
staff.
The steamer E. B. Hale Las arrived.
Several vessels Lave run the blockade of
the Potomac.
Genera! Sumner has not yet been as
signed any command, but in view ot h;s
long experience and servic s m California,
Gen. McClellan, who was formerly a
Captain under him, will detail him im
mediately to some responsible post.
T<>Ri>nto, Nov. 18.
The Globe and Leader newspapers
have severe article* to day on the seizure
of Mason and Slidell. The Globo says
it will add to the strength and dignity of
the American government if the captives
are liberated without remonstrance fiom ,
Britain.
'1 he Loader says it is an insult which
the meanest government on earth would
not submit to.
New York, Nov. 14.
Specials state that Secretary Chase in- I
tends appointing a Collector for Port
Beaufort, as government will make it a
port of entry.
Senator Simmons wil! send n ship to
Beaufort with an assoited cargo to ex- ;
change for cotton.
Gens. Banks an ! Stone, are in consul
tation with McClellan today.
Secretary Cameron has declared sol
diers shall not be used as slave-catchers,
and army officers will not be permitted to
engage in the business, or order subor
dinates to cstch or return fugitives.
A letter from Gon. Villiers states that
several of the rifled cannon taken nt Port
Royal were lately imported from Eng
land.
Washington, Nov. IG.
The Associated Press reporters’account
of the recent victory and movements of
our fleet is substantially the same as oth
ers, but gives a few more particulars.
The AVinfield Scott reached the rendez
vous on the evening of the 3d inst., with
loss of masts and bow stove in. She
threw overboard three rifled cannon, ail
her muskets, equipments, and all b u s her
rations, to keep from sinking, an 1 but for
the efforts of tha soldiers in bailing, the
fires would have been put out, and noth
ing then (nuld have saved her.
The Bienville went to her assistance,
when her chief engineer, his assistant,and
13 seamen juinpeJ aboard tit© Bienville,
and left the Scott t > her fate.
Their action nearly crea’cc a panic, and
the soldiers gave up all for lost.
The captain of the Scott put. the en
g::.e rin irons, and brought him and the
recreant crew back, when things went on
much better.
Col. Clark, of tli? stb Penn, regiment,
who was on board the Scott, describes
the night as one of horror. The gala
was terrible, and the vessel a mere
shell.
The Scott was taken in tow by the
A’anderbilt. which Lad cut clear front the
Great Republic.
In the gale the steamer Governor went
down with twenty men, the Pembina
taking all that could escape.
Ihe Seminole had five shots in her
hull, and the Wabash had her machinery
disabled.
Five of the twenty guns on Hilton
Head were dismount d.
There were 1.800 rebels on Hilton
Heal, and 1.500 on Bay Point.
We have captured 55 cannon, 5,000
muskets, and large quantities of aiumu
tion.
The chief engineer of the Susquehanna
I was killed.

STEREOSCOPE AND VIEW,
Our establishment is the great Emporium

intelligent, none too uneducated to acknowl
edge its worth and beauty.
No home is complete without it, and it must

Messrs. J. N. Harris it Co. —Gentleman :
Your agent, Mr. A. F. Barnes, whilst passing
through our place, casually heard of a most ef
fectual cure of an obstinate case of salt rheum
in a member of my family, having politely
requested the facts of the case, I most cheer
fully comply with his request.
The subject of this remarkable cure is my
son, and was attacked with salt rheum when
about a year and a half old. I applied from
time to time for aid to the most efficient phy
sicians in the eastern states, one of whom had
traveled in Europe ; but whilst he would at
times receive some temporarp relief, still the
disease remained, and would break out occa
sionally, with the most virulent type, until he
rrrived at the age of tout teen years, when my
eye providentially rested upon the advertise
ment of Qr. AVeaver’s Canker and Salt Rheum
Syrup and Cerete. lat ouce procured one
bottle, which on trial so encouraged me. that
I piocured two more, together with the Cer
ate, and the result is that my son now is and
has been effectually cured of that wretched
disease for the last three and a half years.
Respectfullvsyours. ALFRED PARKER.

lowed to have won for itself a reputation un

are its own best advertisement.
REV. W. B. JACOBS :
Nbwauk, N. J., June 6,1860.
Messrs Perry Davis & Son— Gantlemcn :
' Allow me. unsolicited, to send you a word of
■ commendation for your Pain Killer. I have
; used it in my family these several years, and
i found it all it claims to be. For Rheumatism,
i Coughs Colds. Bures. Cholera tendencies and
| difficulties, as well as Diseases generally that
: prevail in families, I regard the Pain Killer as
beyond all price, and as efficacious beyond
any medicine within my knowledge. We
keep it as our chief family medicine, and find
its use in ordinary cases worth more than any
doctor. The testimony of others among my
acquaintances and friends is equally favora
able. Many clergymen have spoken of it in
the highest terms as a family medicine. Mis
sionaries in repeated instances have said to me
in person and in their letters, that the Pain
Killer was by far the best medicire used in
heathen lands, and they use it for themselves
and families, and administer it to others
around them Thus mnch lam inolinad to
say as an act of jnstice to yourselves; and as a
benefit to others. You are at liberty to use
this testimonial, if of anv ser ice.
