They foiled at the problem of life and failed. They traveled diligently and took t lie wrong road just at the end of the jour ney.

Nothing in the whole progress of tho war, to our unmilitary appreheusioii equals the reduction of this rebel strong hold. To understand the full magnitude of the achievement it is necessary to know the geographical, situation. Tie Jlistiusippi here makes a bend nearly in the form of a horse-bhoe, or rather a mule shoe. The Island is near the toe of the shoe, but a little lower down the river. ., . . " ' The diatancc across the heel of the sboo is twelve miles. .Inst below the bend on the Mississippi side ot (lie l iver is the city of New Madrid. Tho first movement was to capture this latter place. The Island itself had been selected by Ileauregard ns a point capable of so being defended as to obstruct completely the navigation of the river and to be impreg nable against any attack. The Island had been fortified by the skill of Gen'I John Y. McCown, a native of Sevier county in this State, and like rcaurcgard) Bnckner, lhagg, Tolk, filghman and Johnston, educated at the expense of the United States. The attack was commenced nearly four Tope and the flotilla, consisting of gun boats and mortar boats, under Commo dore Foote. A bombardment was begun by the fleet and kept up at the rate of some few shots per hour for nearly three weeks, and without any marked results. Secesh was in ecstacy. As usual they fed themselves on all sorts of reports. Gunboats were destroyed, troops were captured, our batteries were shelled, and all manner of misfortunes befel us. In the meantime Gen. Pope was con triving to get below (he Island without passing the fire of the rebel batteries. Tor this purpose the idea w as conceived of cutting a canal across the heel of .the horse shoe capacious enough for tho pas sage of steamboats. The operation is thus described by Gen. l'oi'E in his ofli cial report 'The canal acrot-s the peninsuU opposite Idand No. 10 and for the idea o!" uhich I am indebted to Gen. Schuyler Hamilton was completed by Co). Bisseli's Kuaineer regiment, uud four steamers were b: ought through on the night ot the 8;h. " The cabal has been a prodigiously ln boiious work.

On the 9th of .September last, Messrs. I!. C. FosTKIt, 'Nkim, S. BROWN, J. E. Hails v, and W. G. Hahuiso, telegraphed to "lion. Jr.Fi-Knso Davis, IVesident, oVc,'' as follows : . "Padm-ah is in possession of tho enemy. Our Governor is absent and no Confeder ate officer here. Howling Green could be reached in twenty-four hours by twenty-live hundred infantry, one battery of artillery, and one battalion of cavalry. What shall be done ?" , Howling Green was reached, so was Columbus on the west. Cumberland Gap on the east had been held for monhts. Simultaneously was Kentucky invaded at. those three -points, Columbu?, on the Mississippi, under IVu.k ; from Howling Green towards Louisville, under Buck nek; from Cumberland Gap, towards Lexington, under Zot.ucofkkb. Secesh was about to change its tactics from de fensive to aggressive warfare. And Ken tucky, full of traitors, was selected 89 tho field ot operations. Unlucky day for Secesh! Ketfer have staid at homo and met the vandals there! In every encounter lov.n to the smallest skirmish secesh was second best. True, there was some crowing, but always at a safe dis tance. At Barboursville, at Wildcat, at Tike ton, at Waverly; at Pound Gap, at Mill Spring (Fishing Creek) there was the same catrastrophe ; humiliating, disas trous defeats. And how about Bowling Green? It was occupied, they said, by from 00,000 to 80,000 troops first and last, from, -1,000 to 0,000 of whom died there and were buried, sometimes as many as fifty a day in undistinguished masses. They toiled like slaves at the severest and tho most painful labor in piling up immense fortifications then runaway from them like scared sheep, without firing a gun or waiting for an attack. At Columbus the same thing was reflected only on a larger scala and with even less display. All honor to noble, loyal Ken tucky, for the manner in which she wel- corned to her hospitable soil the hosts of rebeldom. " The Philadelphia Press says that among the cheering signs of tho times is the an nouncement that more than two millions of dollars were received from customs last week. Thus, in the midst of war, commerce remains not only in an unin terrupted but in a flourishing conditiou. Tbo fivnnrla durum, tbn tttwf -','r WOrO. US - I is well known, unusually large; and now the influx oT foreign commodities is suf ficient to yield a very handsome revenue. It w as one of the favorite fallacies of the Southern statesmen ihat nearly the whole foreign traduof the t ouiit.-y was founded on the productions anil the ionsumption of the Sou th an idea very completely exploded by the receipts, referred to above at n time when trade vuih most of the slave Slates is suspended, and by the enormous list of weekly exports from New York and other Northern ports. It would be curious to see a statement of the receipts of the ' Southern Confeder acy" from the secession tariM' that was ostentatiously established some inoiilhs ago. It is doubtful whether a single rebel custom-house has collected enough to pay the espouses of sustaining it ' which were authorized while the author ity of the Union was acknowledged, not witbsrainlliij; bu assertion of Mason, Slidetl, Yancey V Co. that our blockade is incli'eetivo, and the bhallow pretence that the Sou'h formerly consumed the chief portion of the foreign exports of the coimti'V. In a conversation a few days niio with a gentleman fi-oin one of l!i" counties south of here, touching the state of pub- lit: fot-lins. he remarked that in the out- I set Secesh was to the last degree in toler ant and dictatorial; not cuduiing eeii j silence; but since their troops had I passed throtih 'he country, burning I cotton, seizing "join and I'mae, hunk- j ing open inii.t hoii-ics, and plmnlei in.; ! at will, and huriim fences and destroy- iug crops, they hae In ceme ttntly iinri j patient towards (Tunc v,1i di iwniiiccd ; hostility ti) the -'.m-i linn nl tiea-mi hihI were against il as ( bi llion.

It was ascertained that to. meet tho im mense disbursements of the ' Govern ment, there was not gold and silver coin enough ia the country. Hence the necessity of adopting some other repre sentation of value, in other words some form of paper money. The choice lay between the issues of a national bank, the issues of the local banks of the country and notes or bills based on tho credit of the United States. We all remember the old contest between the Whig and Democratic parlies about a National Bank. This was no time to renew it. As to the local banks, many we know arc unworthy of credit. And who was to decide anions: them and make the selection? We have not for gotten what befel tho "pet banks," a) they were called. Treasury notes give the country a currency, uniform and cir culating in every part of it, thus accom pllshing for the people one of tho chief benefits claimed for the old Bank of the United States, and at the same time are not liable to the main objection urged against thj institution givinj lot few men the power lo contract or expand the amount of tho general circulation. The amount issued is fixed by law, and cannot be increased; neither can it be diminished, except by the action of the holders, who may return them to the treasury for stocks of the United States, bearing six per cent, interest, payable in coin. They are thus liable to be issiied. The faith of the Government is pledged for their redemption, and a sounder cur rency could not bo conceived by those, who have confidence in its perpetuity. Henceforth exchanges in the moneys of different parts of the country will be nominal the cost of transmitting Trea sury notes. Cotton IMautiuK lit India. Mr. Harwood, an agent sent out from England to examine into the cultivation of cotton in India, has recently publish ed a report of his extended observation's in that peninsula. He has conversed with tho peasants in most of the cotton growing districts, and states that they are eager for American seed to improve the system of cultivation, and (b obtain the handsome prolits likely to accrue from it. He expresses his linn belief that they stand ready to supply Europe with all the cotton that may bo wanted, excepting perhaps the finest qualities; and that as soon a3they can be properly set to work upon the task. But to induce them to commence large advance must be made upon tlte expected crops ; or rather these must be paid for before they arc gathered from the fields. That the funds required will be furnished in abundance the present season there is not fhe. sliskfost reason to doubt, l".liieiillo Offender In I.hi'jc Cllir. Kvcry one. at all familiar is aware that in alt largo cifies j:rt-at numbers of chil dren are habitually raised to crime, from infancy they are sedulously taught tho arts of thel'l, pocket-picking, lock picking, house-breaking, and mendicancy byillains who profit by their practice, ot unfreijueiijly parents employ their own hihlrp n for their nefarious purposes. It is not surprising that tie great ina jorily of criminals are comparatively yonn. It is rare that they attain even middle life. This class of oll'eiiders has given rise to various excellent reforma tory institutions, established by law, into which llier r'Hli thieves ir" placed, and by a course of discipline, at oin-c kind and linn, are frtoucjitly rescued from a life of degradation.
