A Tennnrlvania regiment was piss in if his window and tho twalu were looking tt the troops, whereupon Mr. Runsel spoke in mbaiunce, as tallows : " isot 111 Lmglaml or France, not In Italy, Russia or India have I ever seou such well-proportioned and healthy men, nnd all things considered, such rnlendid matei iuIs lor au army as aro pre seated by that regiment, which is, in reality only au average specimen ot foe American forces generally.

Florida Abandoned bf th Coitfrd eratt Ooveriimeitt The Boston Journal publishes tho fol lowing letter, found at Jacksonville, Flo rida, by some of our froops, when they took possession of that place. It will be seen that the writer, notwithstanding Florida has been entirely abandoned by the Confederate Government, armrding to his statement, still hugs tho fond de lusion that the rebel causo will succeed, and that Florida will again be linked to tlifl Southern Confederacy by negotia tion : . . MuLiiEKitr Gkovk, March 7, 1 802.

Our government bus signilied its inability to bold Florida, and therefore the troops here have gone to us-i-t in breaking the cordon from the Cumberland riv-r, in Tennessee, to the Cuattsbotic rivei, and there is still the additional uumb'-r if (JO called for from thu State by lbs Gov- ernm 'nt ; but the men will not enlii-t now, es tho government gives us no 'aid, ami axpecra every man In tins biuto to leave his home and interest und gi nnil fight abroad.

Our reaib rs will bo pleased to learn that arrangements are being made to put the two immense guns at Fci tresa Monroe the Rod man, fifieen incn sinooiu bore, nnd the Union, twelve inch rilled in a conditio! lor offensive operations.

The ball is not exactly solid, but is so cast as to secure even' greater strength than If mode solid, tho core b.ing but tour Inches In diameter. This opening is filled with lead, the ball wheu complete weighing 430 pound. They aro not made of the com mon metal used in other shot aud shell, but of he very best quality of guu iron Biooni fleld at that almost us hard as chilled iron, and nearly as tmgb ns wrought iron. Tin beavy g iles are turned off in it Lithe, and the bails are finished up in the ordinary ball mill,"' landed and shipped. Great ex ertions hsve been made to supplv the gun at the earliest mom ;ut with a sulfnlent nuru ber of shots for any emergency, Should tho rebel mouster Merrimac expose her-elf in a fair shot from one of iho.sj balls, wo can safely wager the bead nearest the arm ir, on the iuside, will ache for a while,. A recent order, we learn, has changed the name of the Floyd or Koiliuin guu to the Lincoln. m 1 Tue l'lot to AaaiiKMluuto (life lrldciil ror a long timo It was tit-lleved (hat au Italian barber of Baltimore was the Or?ini wbo undertook to slay fresinVnt Lincoln on his journey to the capitol in February, 1SC1, and it is pjsnible be was one ('1 the plotterr: but It has come out on recent tusi ot a in 'i 11 named Byrne, io Richmond, that he was the captain ot tho band that was to take the life of Mr. Liucolu.

UJitor.i Democrat : Gentlemen Our usually quiet town seems yet doomed to bo the theater of much discord and con fusion; it is already being thickly crowded by refugees from Clinton coun ty, who were driven hither by a lawless maraudipg band of ruffians from Ten nessee, commanded by the notorious Champ Ferguson, whose'handa were long since dyed iu the blood of more than n half a dozen of as innocent and unof fending citizens as Kentucky ever pro duced. 1 , Their statements in regard to tho de struction of life and property all concur, and it is utterly impossible to give any adequate or correct account of the fiend ish deeds committed by these outlaws, who neither have a heart or conscience, or any of those essentials which it re quires io constitute even a shadow of a true man. They deliberately 6 hot down the fol lowing persons white attending peacea bly to their domestic affairs, without even assigning any other reason than that of sympathy for the Union : Wm. HufT, Lewis Tierce, Henry Johnston, two of the Shcllys, John S.ynis and -several others, besides a promising little boy, twelve years old, by the namo of Zach ary, who was taken out of iv sick bed, supposed by two of tho (lemons, while a third cut his abdomen wide open. Such crucifies and barbarities were seldom ever "equalled even in an uncivilized na tion. Col. Woo! ford went in pursuit of them, but as usual tlicy fled back into Tennessee. I think it prudent that we should have a force stationed here on the border, as they have repeatedly invaded this and one or two adjoining counties. Yours, Sec. O. K. The Louisville Democrat, that slciling and staunch Union paper, pays tho Union fhis handsome compliment: We staled, day before yesterday, that the Tatr'ui had suspended. From fhe same ofiico another new paper is now issued, called tho Union. It is a Union paper out and out, and will do good work for tho holy cause. It says that ma ny distressed parents secession have thronged the capitol, earnestly interced ing, with (lor. Johnson for their sons, who have been misled; and then adds: The improvement in the slato of the public mind is most gratifying, aud will bo hailed with rapture by every patriotic heart. The work of restoration pro gresses most checringly. Tho spell of treason is broken, and tho demon of en chantment lies powerless at the feet of our country's genius." The Uii'on is edited by that staunch Union man, N. C. Mercer, formerly of llopkinsville, Ky., the ready writer, the wit, and the poet. We congratulate friend Mercer on his new enterprise, and w ish him unbounded success. Stolen Plates Spurious Monk v.

Col, Thomas V. Sweeny, , The gallant Col. Thomas W. Strccny, who, from news just received, has again been wounded in the recent great battle at Pittsburg in the defense of his coun try's flag and in the maintenance of ifs laws, was born in Ireland, and came to this country with his parents when about ten 3'cars of age. On the passage ncrosa IDC Atlantic lie W9 WaHlinrl nyorl-j." but in tho providence of God was saved. At an early age he went to Patterson, N. J., where he was apprenticed to the printing business. He afterwards came to this city, and was emraared as a com positor till the war with Mexico was do- larcd. He was among the first to vol unteer in the servico of his adopted country in tho capacity of Second Lieu tenant, lie was at tbe stornun of Vera ru., and was twice wounded in the battlo at the taking of the City of Mex ico, losing his right arm. On Col. Swee ny s return to this city ho received the commission ot becond Lieutenant, 2d h'giment U. S. Infantrtf, and was soon ordered to California, where ho performed many arduous duties, from which he never faltered; among the first of which was theaking a detachment of recruits in a state 01 disorganization across the esert, from San Diego lo the inferior, without losing a man. He was after ward assigned o Fort Yuma, on -the Col orado, with a command of ten men ; and chut olT for ten months from all commu nication with tho settlements, and sur rounded by a large band of liosf ile In- lians, but for his watchfulness and in- lefatigablo intrepidity, woufd have been massacred before being relieved. From California he, with'a portion of his regi ment, was ordered to Fort Pierre, in Northern Nebraska, where he served as Aid to ien. Harney, and when arduous duty was fXquired lie was always at his post. At the commencement of the re bellion, Col. Sweeny was on Iho recruiting jcrvice, but was ordered to Newport Bar racks, and soon afterward to fhe com- maml of St. Louis Arsenal. This was previous to fhe time when ken. Lyon took the command. He was second in com mand at the surrendec of tho notorious rebel, Claib. Jackson, when, Gen. Lyon being oisnbled by a kick from his horse, Iho negotiations were conducted by Col. Sweeny, Ho was .afterward appointed Brigadier-General of the three months Missouri volunteers. Previous to the bat- tlo of Wilson s UrecsV, when it was do- ided not to attack tho rebel Gen. Price, Gen. Sweeny was so impressed that a retreat would be worse than a defeat, that ho prevailed on (ten. Lyon to make the attack. In that battle ho was again wounded, and still carries tho ball in his eg. At the close of tho battle, when General Sturgis assumed the command, Gen. Sweeny was urgent in following up the retreating rebels, believing that lind it been done, (hey would have been com pelled to surrender. (Jen. Sweeny is as noble and generous as he is gentlemanly and brave. Devoted entirely o his a- doptcd counlry, when fhe rebellion broke ou-, he than expressed himself in a letter to a friend: " 1 will, through flood and llamc, sacrifice, if necessary, any remain ing limb in defense of my country's flag." Such merit as his is not likely to lie overlooked by the Government. V. 1". Tribune. Originator ol' (lie JCcbelllou. In tho matter of personal character, leaders and originators of the rebellion rite peculiarly weak. There H scarcely, indeed, a man of an unstained reputation to bo found among the leaders of the insurrection. Yancky is a convicted murderer, who would have been in prison instead of intriguing in Lnglnnd against (he Union, had he not been pardoned by the Governor of South Carolina. Wio kall lied frm his native Stato to escape the consequences of au assassination, becamo collecting agent in Texas, and swindled his principals of (he money Ik trathered. Floyd, while Governor of. Virginia, was detected speculating jn tho BtoclvSof (he State entrusted to him fell. Slidell, tho worthy successor of Yan cey, u.-ed his influence as a Senator (0 pass through Congress tho notorious lloi.MAs Lnnd Grant, a cheat socnormous that the next Congress revoked the Grant. Benjamin', Dams' Secretary of War, was expelled from college for rifling trunks, and was tho partner afterward of Slidell in (he Hoi mas swindle. Thomp son, while Secretary of the Interior, con nived at tho abstraction of Indian Trust bonds, and when dismissed for the of fense, lied front Washington by night, to avoid prosecution. Conn, as Mr. Bn 11 anan's Secretary of the Treasury, specu lated in stocks at a timo when he was plotting the ruin of that Government of which he w as the sworn agent. Davis used his great influence, in Mississippi, to induce tho people of tbat Stato (o de fraud their creditors. Toombs was the confederate of Keitt and Brooks in their attempt to assassinate Senator St mnku. These are tho men who oiiginaied and are carrying on the Southern Rebellion.
