The Sonthern Independence Committee having been urged by numerous citizens to name a candi date to fill the vacancy in tho representation from Davidson county in the popular branch of the Leg islature occasioned by the resignation of E n Hist, Esq , respectfully recommend IbaP. Joxes, Esq., for that position. Kamon In East Tennessee. We learn from letters from East Tennessee that rumors are rife thero that a great reaction has taken place in this portion of the State in favor of submission to the acts of Abraham LttCoLX, subver sive of Constitutional liberty, with the view to ut terly subjugate the South and carry forward the doctrines of Black Republicanism. We can but believe that those who originate such re ports know well that they are totally unfounded, and on tho contrary, that the small remnant of Unionism which either ignorance, prejudice or lacir. of patriotism yet keeps alive, is fast melting away before the overpowering convictions of an aroused and determined people. Of tho miserably small squad of Unionists that yet adhere to their untena ble position in the county of Davidson, all of them belong tp one of the classes above described. Those who still vaunt their devotion to the once glorious but now perverted and disgraced Union, through mere prejudico, and some of whom are clever men in all the relations of private life, arc regarded as monomaniacs who cannot in political matters see ... bevond the cant and clap trap of old party watch words, and are incapablo of forgetting the fancied injuries to their pride and feelings which party dis cussions have engendered. Such men justly have no influence in any great movement, and arc generally set down, by their friends, as entitled to charity and pity from tho imbecility of prejudice that smothes their better leelings and makes them tho prey to wrong headedness, obstinacy and passion. It is hoped and believed that these men will pause in their career, and at least when the voice of the people ofTennessee shall be proclaimed for separation from the tyranny at Washington and union with our Southern breth ren to secure our common rights, that they will not then add criminality to their misguided zeal for an odious cause. That class of the tmall squad of Unionists, who from ignorance of the facts or iucapaciiy to appre ciate and estimate their bearing, are drift ing into an odious position similar to that of the Tories of 1776, ought to be treated kindly, reasoned with and enlightened by their friends, so that they may see that tho tendency of their acts is towards encouraging an internecine war upon our homes and firesides, the butchery of our families,, and the enthronement in our midst of a reign of terror, destructive of the constitutional guarantees of freedom and the sanctity of home. Every means ought to be used to teach such erring j ersons the error of their ways; and they ought morevpr to be taught that when the people shall de cree "separation and representation" in June.it is due to their safety and the self preservation of the State, that their raven notes should cease, and no longer be heard to "give aid Rnd comfort to the com mon enemy.1' The third claw of Unionists are those whose hearts aro far away from their homes. They are Black Republicans in fact, and enemies to our peo ple. The indignation of the people against such men h justly hot. fierce and unrelenting. That such a class should be permitted to di'grace our soil, is only ascribable to the spirit of tolerance Hnd cou servatijtn which reigns throughout the South. Af ter the Sth of June, they will no longer be known among us Until then the sacredness of the ballot- box will screen them from injury, but not from scorn. But when Tennessee shall take her position, with the one great and patriotic object of protect ing her soil against invaders who hold precisely a similar position with these men. they must hide their heads from public view, and woe to them, il they shall be fuund practicing their peculiar and damnable doctrines in cur midst. Work for the Arxur in itio Penitentiary We made a visit to the Penitentiary yesterday in company with Capt. Rcws of the Artillery, and were highly gratified at the forwardness of the work for supplying the army vrith the equipments of the soldier. Cob Jonxsos. the polite and ener getic agent, accompanied us into all the departments and we found everything prosresaing satisfactorily, and with extraordinary rnergy, under his 'supcrin- tendencc. There are C." men emp'oyed alone in making cartridges, in the proportion of 20,000 a day, and in a few days the proportion will greatly increase, from the skill derived by experience. We also visited Uie room m vrmcn muskets are being repaired and cleaned. There are 30 men em ployed here, and an average of 100 guns are being put in order. Some of the old muskets arc very much out of order, but they are made as bright and perfect, as when new, under the hands of the men, Various hands are employed in making cap boxes cartridge belts, havresacks, camp chairs, stools ana .nts. mllitarv chests, etc.. etc.. with a zeal and in dustry that reflect the highest credit on the mana gers of the institution. We were delighted with the industry, earnestness and vigor with which the important details of the work are going for ward.

If it wore possible for our State, by lier vote on the Sth of June, to adhere to Lincoln's despotic and despicable Government, what would bo the oiled upon the destiny of Tennessee? Her brave volun teers, now in the field, would bo stricken nerveless,' their stout arms paralyzed, and their loyally to their native State be branded as treason. Our cities would be over-run by marauding and Iicen- tious Ulaek Republican soldiery, as Maryland i now. The women of the land would be subjected ia insult, and t'ie men to infamy and degradation. The people would groan under a burden of taxa tion to support the war against their Southern brethren unparalleled in our history ami most grievous and oppresFivo to be borne. Our trade with the South, which ia our onlj trade, would be forever broken up, our farmeit impoverished, their laud and slaves rendered valu less, our mechanics' shop deserted and the grass be made to grow ia our street". Wc would lose forever our own respect and be tho scorn of all mankind. These, and even greater evils and horrors than these, which the pea ran iwt Ascribe, would fall upon the devoted heads of a people whose timid hearts should shrink from the maintenance of their own rights, liberties and in stitutions, and tho liberties and institutions of tbeii brethren.

Much stress is laid unon the fact, that the Bill re cently passed by the Legislature, "for the defence of Vie State," authorizes the levy of a tax ol eigid cents oa the one hundred dollars, which will make the State taxes more than double what they are at present. this tact is Kept oetore me people, 10 excite iueir fears and force them into submission. Let the peo ple examine the question, and the argument will be robbed of all terror. It is true that the State tax the nasfvear was seri cents on the hundted dol lars, and that under this bill the tax will be ffletn cents. There is an additional fact the honest tax payer ahould bear in mind, to w:t: Prior to the last regular session of the Legislature, tho tax in Ten nessee was fAtrffcn ai2 one-sixteenth cents upon the S100 of taxable property. Owing to tho rapid in crease in the value of property and economical ad ministration of tho State Gevernment, said Legisla tors rpdnned the tax to seven centt on the S100 " a lighter tax than the people of Tennessee had paid lor 17 years, and perhans the lightest tax of any other State in the Union.'' Tho nresent tax bill does not mereage the t3xe ftro cents on the S100 more than was paid two years since. This bill which is the subject of so much bitter animadversion, only requires the man worth ten thousand dollar to pay the pitiful sum of ei'jhi doitais, to protect that property from eonfiscali-n and destruction. Ihe poor man worm one mousauu dollars has to pay Jie eiionnoiis sitm of eighty cents to preserve las hnusencio gods, protect nis asvuicu wile and rosy cheektu children from brutal vio lence or destruction. Knoxville Register. This war tax crv i3 one of tie most arrant hum bugs with which designing men ever -attempted tj deceive an intelligent people, and we wonder that the people of Tennessee have tho patience to treat with any sort of respect, tho man who places so low an estimate upon their intelli gence, as to fcalieve luu ney can uc swerved from the performance of a high and pa triotic duty by such appeals to their cupidity. Our taxes, even in these war times, aro not near so hiah as they wuie in the States North of us before the war commenced. For instance, in New Hamp shire and Maine the tax was 20 cents on the S100 of taxaMe property. Ia Pennsylvania it was 25 cents ; in Minnesota, 2G cents ; in Ohio 31 cents, and in Illinois. 77 cents. The latter State, in which the tax before tho commencement of the war was jii-e times greater than ours will be t-ince the war, is one of the most prosperous States in the Wc3t ; equally so with ours in all the elements of wealth. yet wo hear of men going about deploring the utter xuiu that has been brought upon tho people ot mis State by the war tax!

LINCOLN'S VESSELS BADLY DAMAGED. SOMEBODY HV1VE. Proa the Kair York Day Eeok. f r -1 Nobfolk, May -20. Wo stop tho press to announce that a skirmish took place, Saturday, below. - We learn tho steamer J. M. Smith was -below at about 12 or I o'clock, attending to some errands at Boush's Bluff, when she was fired at by the steamer Monticello of tbc blockading squidron. The Monticello fired a blank cartridge across the bow of the Smith to warn her to lav to. but as the Smith disregarded the warning tho Monticello tLen fired a shot which missed its mark. ' Capt. louog.at Boush'a Bluff Dattcry, then fired one or two shots at the Monticello, one of which it 13 believed, struck her. Sho thitt backed out and opened her fire on the earth works now erecting at So wall's Point, which, it ia believed, she destroyed. So far, -nobody hurt" Repeated firing Has been heard from below since the above took place. XATSU ADDinoSAL FARTTUtAES. Wo gave in our, Saturday afternoon's second edi-' tion, the abovo outline of the Urst uattie in tni3 sec tion, which wo find, in tho mam, correct; since which time wo have gathered the following partic ulars from aa eye-witness. The steam tug Kahukee, Captain Baylor, (not the J M Smith, as reported,) started down on Saturday about half past 12 o'clock, to carry ono hundred negro laborers to the battery now in tho course of erection at Se wall's' Point. When she arrived in that vicinity she saw the steamer Monticello lay ing well over in the month of James river. The Kahukee took her position as near the earth works as prudent, lowered her yawl and sent it ashore with as many of the laborers as it would carry; these were landed, and the boat was about return ing for another load, when the steamer aionuceiio, which had steamed away.from.the mouth of James river, and crono in the direction of Old Point, as those on board tho tug thought, came round the point of woods at the extrfme end of Sewall's Point, in chaws of the Kahukee, The latter was now about three miles below Boush's Bluff, the rmltr tilsro whcrB thprff urn anv " sruns mounted in that immediate vicinity, and seeins the Monticello about coming after her, steamed up the river to es cape. Tho Monticello then fired a shot after her, which not answering the purpose of stopping her, she re neate.l bv firing a shell, which wo understood ex ploded about fifty yards in advance of her. In the meantime, the chase had become so exciting to those in command of tho Monticello that she was about getting into a good position to be cracked at bj- Captain Young's battery at Baush'a Bluff. Cap tain Yminfr havintr now ono cun to bear on her, though at long range, let fi at her with that, which was eraDe shot, and scattered about her like hail stones. The Montlecllo immediately backed her engine, and without turning round got out of harm's way. She then dropped down opposite the place where we are erectine a battery at Sewall's Point. She here opened her fire on tho unfinished breast- woria wivninemtentiou 01 aemonaning uieui.ui.atui; continued until, as It was supposed, ber aramuni tion was exhausted, and in the meantime the little steamer Yankee came un to her nid. They two togethor kept up the bombardment for about three hours, say lrom 1 to 4 o docs. Thev were still firine when another "lttle steamer, supposed to be the Young America, came over from Old Point when thev ceased. The two small steam ers, the Yankee and Young America, then left for Old Point, and Monticello kept her position in the nciirhborhood until our informant left. These steamers were about a quarter of a mile from the unfinished works, during the time they were hammering away at them eo, but we learn have scarcely soiled the works, the only damage being the starting of a log of one of the embra sures. Out of about thirty shot and shell only one took effect as above. The women and children livinst in the neighbor hood were very much alarmed, and left their houses and sought safety by flight. Thrro wai no one on the nlace armed. A white man had a Sharp's rifle loaded, with which he stocKf upon the worlc, toon aim anu nrea; inouga 11 is not known with what effect. Another man had one of Allen's old stylo pocket pistols which he had left near the beach in the crotch ot a tree, ite men tioned the circumstance to a negro who volunteered to co after it for him: he told him not to do so, The necro. however, watched his chance between fires, and darted to the tree and got it; thus evinc ing a remarkable degree ot leariessness, ' The Kahnkee's boat, then at the shore, put off for the steamer, and the battery at th9 Bluff, mistaking her for one of the enemy's boats, fired a shot after her, which caused her to put back. This shot we understand was a line shot, but the distance was ton 17T-p.1t to do anv damase The hands at the works were strongly tempted to scamper off, till the first two or three shots from the Monticello wero fired, but finding their ability to dodae them bo finely, they held their places in or der to sec the fun. Many of the shots took effect in the trees, limbs from which were cut off, which was the most dangerous leature 01 we wnoie auAir. Thev. however, kent clear of the trees, and avoided the danger from that source. The ball and shell mnstltr tell in the rear of the woik in a hoc the mud from which some of them would scatter like hnil storm. A ball struck amonir a flock of crows in the neighborhood, who rose en masse, and ascertain ins that it came lrom tho "d d Yankees," lelt ir disgust." ANOT1IKS ENGAGEMENT TUB MONTICELLO CRUTLCD AND WITHDRAWS. As will anDear from the above, the steamer Hon ticel'o kent the position near the breastworks. where she hitched on to a buoy Saturday .after the firine-. She remained thero until yesterday, watch ing the operations ashore, and in oi der to keep them from going on witn me worss. 111c oaitery m on 1 sand bank and verv much higher than the steamer, she consequently did not see everything that was going on, notwithstanding the strict watch, for the boys were at work like moles, some of them, we understand, having to lay flat on their stomachs to perform some part of their labor, On Saturday evening when the firing ceased, there was not a gun on the Sawall's Point battery, but by men fighting for their rights, herculean feats can be performed. Three short 32-pounders were carried down from the city, and got in tolerable condition for temnorarv use. Besides these, two six-inch field rilles pieces, the guns of the United States were drawn un in nosilion. me wnoie uonceaica irom view of the enerav. Yesterday (Sunday) evening, about four or five o'clock, a small schooner from below passed up and when near the Monticello she fired a gun which passed over the battery. It i3 not known positively whether she fired al the schooner or at the battery though it is asserted by some that the schooner was acting in the capacity ot a iook out tor 1110 sieamti and had sent a boat alonuside of her before she fir ed the gun. The idea is that the schooner got as near the fort as possible and sent a man up on her mast head to spy into tne ion, uiosc inaiuu oeini; un . - . 1 1 ; 1 concious Ot wnat was goins; on. auu umumi; iier tripml. Ilowever. that first aun was taken as banter, and the battery answered it. with as much spirit and rapidity as convenience would allow; tne second ball, we understand, taking tho effect in her rigging, much of which was cut away. The firing ormiimipd for some considerable time, by both the btcamer and the battery. The two rifle cannon, it is said, did the most exe cution, a shell from ono of which, it is reported, burst on striking the steamer's rigging, though it is not known whether it proved fatal. The steampr was struck in her hull several times nearly amid phips, and one hole, we understand, was knocked intoJier side large enough for a flour barrel to en ter. The steamer's battery was finally silenced; and about that time tho two little steamers, the Yankee and Young America, came up. both of which, we understood, fired a few balls at the fort. They all three then started off down the river towaids Old Point. It is the general impression that the Monticello is seriously crippled, from the manner in which she was creened over when she left, and probably from her having ceased her fii so quick. The shot and shell from the steamers flew over the batteay, manv of them striking a mile in the rear. One shell bursted near the battery without injurv. A piece Of it weighing four or five pounds we saw last night.-The tops of the pine trees in the neighborhood were pretty well cut down by the shot and shell from the Yankees, and the boughs and splinters were scattered about with a good deal of activity, though with no bad results, except the scratching ot the hand of one of the staff officers who was present. It gives us pleasure to hear so glowing a report of the spirit of bravery which was brought out in this engagement. We feci satisfied that our cause is in the hands of the right kind of men. During the cannonading, we understood, some of the infantry sallied out on the beach and discharged their small arms, (Minnie rifles, wc presume.) at the Monticello, she being, what was considered at the time, within range. It is said that every man engaged on shore acted the part of a hero; the only regret being that they were not more thoroughly prepared for the occasion, by having their heavy ordnance in better condition for the reception of the enemy. , . , The only injury, we understand, with tho excep tion of tho staff officer, was that received by Mr. Wm. tiorrie, of tho Woodis Rifle corps, who got his ankle bruised bv tho rebound of one of the big guns. We understand the irjury is very sliaht. Not a shot of the enemy struck the works to injure them, most of them passing far overhead. "No body hurt" on our side, though we don't believe we can sav the same thing for tho enemy, as the apparent confusion on board seemed to indicate otherwi-e. It is thought by some that this attempt on our battery is a ruse to draw our attention from some point of more importance to the enemy. Ilowever this may be, they will find it unavailing as our peo ple now begin to realize that they are at war, and have got fighting to do; which, judging from the eagerness displayed by "the boys," they will do to perfection if the Yankees will only givo them a chance. By others it is surmised that the nttask on that unfinished battery was intended merely to demolish it; that they did not know it was there till they dis covered it on Saturday, whilst in pursuit of the steamer Kahukee, and finding it unprepared to re turn their fire, they anchored near by to deter our folks from working on it We rathir suspect the answer they got from the Sewall's Point battery yesterday evening, took them somewhat by sur prise.

Wbt ttie men ivoro Hot Killed. Aereatdealof wonderment shows itself, hero and there, ia tho txking of Fort Sumter, nobody was slain. There is really no occasion for won derment at all. In Fort Sumter, the garrison was so small, that every man could cover himself, and the early abandonment of the bin-belle enabled them to save their bacon belore it was burnt. In re card to the Carolina troops the engineering work was admir ibly done, and studiously designed, the better to cover all parties engaged from every cas ualty. Wc had ample time for precautions, and our Engineers made the most of it. First, it was known that only so many men wero in garrison at bumter. They could, accordingly, man only so many guns. Jxext, it was known that only so many guns couia be brought to bear upon our batteries ; and these batteries were so placed, accordingly, as to auow ol their exposure only to the smallest possible num ber of guns. Sand bags, and iron, and traverses, did the rest Aeain : it was deliberately arranged that the ene my in Fort Sumter should be driven from his lar- bitle as sooa as possible. The fires of Fort Moultrie! and other points were calculated to'bear almost sole ly on the barbette. Major Anderson, being a pious philosopher ot tne ruritan scuooi, seems to nave, made a blunder at the beginning, in not opening fire for full two hours after the Carolina batteries had been at work. By this time the ranee had been gain ed, and his barbette had become quite too hot. lor comfort. It is said that, having bo oil, he could not see to shoot at half-past four in tho morning. But thia difficulty could only ajply to his casemates. On his barbette he had lust aa much light as ins assail ants, and. in fact, being some forty feet higher, he had something more. Could he have Kept up me work at his barbette guns, he woull nave done mucn mors mischief. But Colonel Ripley knew this, and had arranged, long before, that the barbette must be rendered untenable at an early hour in tno morn ing; and our artillery and shell soon succeeded ia making it so: otherwise Major Anderson might have enjoyed the unspeakable satisfaction of discharging nis mortar coiuuiuiau ai, iuu uifcy u.h. wiw (w shooiina at Awa-murdering a few score of specta tors, women and children. There is no mystery in the affair, properly examined. Charleston Mercury. Hon. John marshal!. Last Monday, our quarterly County Court being' in extra called session to take into consideration the state of the country, to organize Home Guards un der the new law,&c., a very large concourse of our citizens were assembled at the Uourt House.

Marshall, being loudly called for, came forward up on the stand and made a speccn replete witn argu ment ard lull of the fire of patriotism. lie demon strated to the mind ot every man present, by facts and arguments which produced "confirmation strong as proof of Holy Writ," the absolute necessity, so cially, politically, and commercially, of the imme diate separation of Tennessee from the Federal Government at Washington, and the adoption ot the Provisional Government ot the Uonlederate states He said that he. in common with a great majority of the people of Tennessee, had been devo'ed to the Union, and that the Union party of the Border States had done all in their power to secure peace and reconstruct the Government. But that usurpation had followed usurpation on the part of tha Admin istration at Washington, till a reconstruction was amon? the ideas of the past. He said that war had been inaugurated, war of sec lions in which it was impossible to stand neutral, that the day and the hour had arrived n hen the safety and the honor of Tennessee demanded that she should sever all her connections with the old Government and immediately connect herself with the new; that in this struggle there should be one head, one hand, one heart. He proclaimed that on the Sth of June he should vote lor Separation ana Hep- resentation, and hoped that Williamson county would vote that ticket without a dissenting voice, that he would bo rejoiced if the lest Union County in the State should, on that day, prove herself the best disunion county. We do not pretend to give the language, or even an abstract of the substance of Mr. Marshall- speech, but only to present a few of the leading points. It is conceded by all tha Mr. Marshall stands a peer among the ablest jurists and -wisest statesmen of Tennessee, ills acknowledged acuity. his known integrity, and above all, his unflinching devotion to the Union as long as there was a union or tho hone oi one. combine to give his opinions and position on the great questions that agitato the land, great weight Detore me people oi xennessee, The Sentiment In Jackson County For tt.e Union and Ameiican, Graxvilli:, Jackson Co., Tenn- May 23, 18C1.

Stanton, met the people at Granville, who had turned out in large numbers, ladies and gentle men, among whom were a great many volunteers It was said to be the largest congregation ot peopi ever assembled in Granville. The people of Gran villc and vicinity had prepared a sumptuous basket dinner, enough for all white and black. Stanton made one of his happiest effort-i, convincing tho un believer, establishing the wavering, and greatly stenethened the faith of them that believed ; in short, the people in this vicinity are now almost, if not quite a unit " t or separation ana nepresenia tion," in favor of going the whole hog are for no half wav ground are lor uniting witn our soutn ern sisters at once.

The volunteer comnanv above alluded to got several ac cessions to their ranks. Look out in a few days for a company, from this vicinity, of aa brave a set of men as ever marched to a battle field to do ser vice in the cause of the South. The people here are going to furnish their quota of soldiers for the war : and the people will suatam mem at me pons by voting almost it not nuite lor sustaining tne ac tion of the Legislature and our volunteers on the field. The company of volunteers met at John Lee's, R-q., on Martin's Creek, on Monday, the 20th inst , at which time and place there was a consider able turnout of people, when it wa3 postponed by an Opposition man a parties formerly existed to get the sentiment of tho people as to their choice lor a suitable candidate for nest Governor after expiating the importance of union among the peo ple, and the iniurv that would likely result from a contest for Governor, at a time, when the people were not prepared for a contest of that sort, he proposed, in order to avoid any division of senti ment, the claims of our able and efficient Governor Ishara G Harris, to be run without opposition when the people responded to the proposition by acclamation. The meeting consisted of men of both turtirs. as thev formerly existed. I think the peo pie of all parties would heartily support Governor Harris; indeed, they don't want to keep up the nartv distinctions, and think that the most efficient way of putting it down. We have one company of volunteers already organised in Putnam, and an other will be organized to-morrow. Yours, &c , Soutiierx Rights. Tho Voice of n. .Southern Patriot. We take the following extract from a letter re cently written by Judge Nathan Green, well known throughout the South as being connected with the Lebauon Law School, in reply to an invitation to address the people at Knoxville. He has been an ardent lover of the old Union, and is now in the seventieth year of his age. He says : I think our self-respect, our honor, and our sa cred rights, all demand that we sevtr our connec tion with the United States forever. Surely, no son of the South would turn his arms agaitst the Confederate States in this emergency, anJ assist lae oppressor to suojugute uie wruiigeu uiiu wjureu nartv. What if they did spurn tne oppressor, ana defy tho tyrant a little earlier thac all thought was prudent and necessarj? AU must admit that their wrongs were grievous and hard to be borne, and that they had cause for revolt. Wo had like cause, but we had more faith in the wrongdoer, and were willing to remonstrate, and wait for tho "sober second thought" of the North, when we hoped for instieo. But our faith was ill-founded, and our hone delusive. We have been flattered and cajoled until like Maryland and Missouri, wc are almost in the toils of the enemy. A little more delay and hesitation, and a military despotism will be estab lished -over us. I say then to arms, and resist to the last erinmiiy. The united South cannot be vub daed. Every motive of self-preservation invokes us to union in the Koutn. Tub Removal or the Capital. The Capital, we learn. Is to be removed. On yesterday a large ma jority of the Provisional Congress voted to no so. und from what wo can learn n win not ue iuhi; ue tore the Canital of the Confederate States is re moved to Richmond. Public necessity a desire to do everything looking towaids the expansion and progression of a young but great Confederacy, has prompted the distinguished and patriotic mea who f-nmnnse our Congress to take this Btep.

Tha Secretary of thai Treasury has caused the new test oath tobe applied to the clerks in the several bureaus of thia depart ments Many j have- declined, takisrit: It k aeder s tooa inai win vaia win suoruy uo put to every description f-cllicial here. It cannot "be true as stated in, s, Charleston paper that Barnes Tl Harvey, who has been appointed minister tp Portugal, is fn Charleston and about to be arrested." Ho left this country some days since. intending to spend soma few days at Gal way, Ire land, where ho has 'some relations, and thence will proceed to Lisbon, via Paris. If anything wero wanting to show that a move ment in force is comtemplatcd at Fortress Monroe, it is seen in me fact tnat a Major Ueneral has been sent there. Not only will ho strengthen that for trees by field works on tho land side, but his ope ration ontbeneok of land extending between the James and York, rivers, towards -Richmond and Petersburg, may require tho diversion of a considerable force to hold the Federal troops in check in that quarter. Tho rivers are so broad for along distance that they cannot be crossed by Gen. Lee's troops with a view to make J. flank attack. Anhnglun paper expresses the hopo that the blockade of the Southern ports by the federal Gov ernment will not bo applied to vessels coming for or departing with cotton. Bat it will be seen that one British vessel has already moved off from, the port of Charleston, while another run tho blockade. The whole object of he blockade would ba destroyed n it did not prevent the exportation of cotton from the Southern ports. Aa tho lcderal government will not probably relax tho blocade. it remains to bo seen whether tho British government will quietly await the result of the struggle, or interpose in sorao form, amicably or otherwise, for an adjustment be tween the parlies. One of tbo consequences ot the war 13 that the carrying trade between Europe and America will be transferred from American to neutral bottoms, to the great prejudice of northern navigating inter ests. It is a grave question whether we shall be able to keep this war, as a little private matter ,at home. The commercial and industrial interests of some of tho principal European nations will bo much prejudiced by it, and, besides, ma rights ot merchants either on the seas or in belligerent ports are likely to be miured in war. It is extremely difficult for belliger erents to ascertain, with certainty, what ships and cargea on the ocean or found in belligerent ports, belonir to enemies and what to merchants. Wrongs are committed and abuses occur which produce national irritation, and frequently merchants be come thus involved in the conflict This was the case of the United States in 1812. We went to war in behalf xt "free trade and sailors' rights." which the belligerent parties had grossly outraged. Possibly the lederal government may reopen tbo suspended negotiations with the British government respecting the adoption, as a whole, ot the nve pro positions ot the Paris uonlercnce. something may be done, in mis way, to preserve peace between me belligeranls here and tbc European powers.

The rivers are so broad for a long distance, mat they cannot be crossed ny the Virginia forces with a view to flank movements. The destruction of the rebel battery at Sewall's point at the mouth of .Elizabeth river, is but the brief initial to more important movements in that vicinity. Uraney Island, commanding the entrance to Norfolk, is found to be covered with batteries. which renders it exceedingly hazardous for a fleet to approach them.

Wasbinoton, May 23. It is rumored that the President has declared to prominent persons that there will bo no invasion of the rebel States beforo autumn. The reports are not entitled to credence in view of what is known of the plan3 of the Ad ministration. It is probable that the extreme South will not be approached during hot weather, but otlensivc operations will be speeauy unaeriaken in Virginia. AU the troops here received fresh orders this morning to be ready, to march at a moment's notice. A large number of troops aro expected during the week. It is rumored that the Fire Zouaves have received orders to occupy Arlington Heights. This move ment is supposed to have some reference to opera tions in Virginia. The Michigan regiment has been ordered to be ready to march at any moment, with two days' rations. negalaUrsf TclegrapU Operations.
