Armjr of the Potomac Vpecisl says: Mud appears to remain, to a considerable extent, master. of the ail- uation before Richmond. Ilain up to ' Saturday had been so hea?y and continu ous for some days as to turn all roads into sloughs, and pot a stop to any very important movement on either side. The Richmond Dispatch, of the 3d, 6a?s there has been altocether too much talk, and urges Congress to cease speech making and go to work or adjourn, lt says, we tWt observe that Sherman was " anywhere stopped by the thousands of rounds 01 rarrot guns wnicu uov. juoore, 1 anS other public speakers let off at his advancing columns, and unless the repre sentatives of the people tako ,the field themselves and secure a position bo close that they can hear what they say, we have do hopes for him who puts Lis tin gers in his ears and runs for his life. The Whig declaros that the rebel treas ury is nearly exhausted, and has issued all the cotes permitted by law. The ar my must be paid, and money roust be raised to pay it, ana tne oniv pracucaoia wav to accomblish this obiect is bv rret- - r j - - o img money cnougu oacK into mo treasu ry of the government. This can only be done by taking advantage of the liberal and patriotic feeling that exists among ' The Examiner savs the liftnririjr . of Captain Cell, on authority of Lincoln, is ' exciting deep indignation in this commu nity, where deceased had many friends. The Sentinel opposes the movement . for a State convention, and says the call " for a convention in North Carolina and Georgia is the form in which openly dis loyal men of thoso States aro making op position to the Confederacy, and exhibit log their treason' in the name of the pco plo. We call upon the House of Dele gales to put its own heel upon it and .with emphasis on the convention scheme.

The abolition celebratoin of thejecond inauguration of Abraham Lincoln, under the pretext of rcy)icing over, tho recent . . victories, seems to. have been a wretched ' failure io everv part of the country. The event of Lincoln's inauguration, March . 4, 1861, has proved tho greatest calamity that ever befel this or any other, country uuder the light of the sun. Who, then, could tationally rejoice in view of tho sec ond event of precisely tho same character f Seward's victim, Argucllos, has been sentenced to the Havana chain gang for ight year. ...'.,,.. , Grand Havea Union Schccl Report 9 ' : iHK following report lrom air.

It is obtained by dividing the sum of the actual number of pupils of each week for the term. Thus, tho aver ago enrollment is greater than tho num ber of pupils in school at tho beginning, but less than the number at the close of the term. Tho number of pupils seated in the High School, for the first week of the fall term of 1864, was thirty-three; for the last week of the same term, sev enty-four; and has been as high as eighty ono. In the Primary Department, for the first week, one hundred and twenty-eight; last week, one hundred and twonty-soven ; and has been as high as one hundred and fifty-four. The Intermediate Department, throughout tho term, has kept inside the limits fifly-fiye and sixty-one. ' .... Owing to tho want of room wo have boen compelled to change several classes from one room to another, so that it is impossible to give tho accurate number of pupils enrolled iu each department. . Tho per cent, of attendance, it will bo seen, is greator by seven por cent, than last year, yet the djflerence, wilh a littlo attention on 'the -part 'of parents, might bo made still greater. This is the greatest difli culty the teachers have to contend with - the irregularity of attendance. It is to be hoped that the patrons of the schoo will encourage the teachers in their efforts to decrease this prevailing evil . in our schools. . ' J .
