News from tlio United Stalrx. okdek from president lincoln in regard to the treatment of black troop.'4. ijv the . confederate government. The most important feature of the news from the North is the following official proclamation ) from President Lincoln, declaring protection to 1 "contracted" troops, and threatening retaliation: 1 Executive Mansion, ) Washington, July 30, 1803. ) It is the duty of every government to give " protection to its citizens, of whatever class, , color or condition, and especially to those who are duly organized as soldiers in the public service. The law ot nations and the usages and customs of war, as carried off by civilized powers, permit no distinction as to color in treatment of prisoners of war as public enemies, To sell or enslave any captured person, on account HI' bis color, and for no offence against - laws of war is a relapse into barbarism, and a crime against the civilization of the age. The Government of the United States will give the same protection to all its soldiers, and, if the enemy shall sell or enslave any one because ol his color, the offences shall be punished by re ( taliation upon the enemy's prisoner in out , possession. It is therefore ordered, that soidicrs of the United States, killed in violation of the laws of war, a rebel soldier shall be executed, and , lbr every one enslaved by the enemy, or sold s into slavery, a rebel soldier shall be placed at hard labor on the public works, and continued at such labor until the other shall be released, and received the treatment due to prisoners oi I warAukaiiam Lincoln. Mexico.? Permanency of Fkkxcii Occupation.?The French occupation of Mexico will last as long as will be necessary to assure forever in that country the opperation of an honest and regular Government. The pimple > themselves would eventually be called upon to decide. In eveiy case Franco would take possession of So no ro, and would establish in one oil*the ports of that region a French military stat ion for the protection of her commerce and ^ of such Frenchmen as might go there to reside, i We understand that already the Government is calling the attention of capitalists to liumcr ous sources of wealth to be explored in that magnificent country. This appeal to industry; j and the sending ot' troops and munitions that i arc being got ready in our arsenals and ports are of a nature, to lead to the belief that tTic Government expects to be installed at Mexico for quite, a long time.?La Nation of Paris - An Important Capture.?It seems tbattbc ? ('apt. l'aine who, with bis boat's crew was captured on Tuesday night, is a scout of some note and dash amongst the enemy. The New York JferuhVs correspondent thus notices hit ? services: I "It is not improper now to mention the dis" j tinguisbed services of one ot the most skillful ? scouts our army affords?Capt. L. S. Paine ot the 100th New York, lie scouted all around Morris Island before we took it, and landed in several places. He seems to have a faculty 01 knowing just where all pickets and troops arc, . and his life is evidently charmed, for he has: '* been fired on many times at vcrv short ran</e, * o ^ lie lias command of all our picket lines.,,? Charleston Mercu ry. 1 __ J f From .HciulcS Army. Frkderickshuiig, August 8.?The citizens of Stafford report the enemy in considerable force about five miles from the river; but no signs of them can be seen from this town. 5 ? 3 Gordonsville, August 8.?A gentlemen * just from Brandy Station says that a force ol , the enemy had come four miles beyond Bran^ dy, from the direction of the Rappahannock bridge, and were destroying everything. Theii ? force is supposed to consist of three regiments of cavalry and eight of infantry. Important from the West. 1 Morton, Augusts.?Col. Matt Johnson sunk one transport and disabled two others opposite Greenville last Tuesday. Since that time ho a: has caused to turn back soine twelve steam- L boats laden with Merchandise. Gunboats s< , came up and shelled the woods furiously for 15 miles without doing any damage. This will v cause numbers of light artillery to he organized h at once for the same purpose, and a few weeks k will see the Mississippi more effectually block- li aded than ever. \ , Atlanta, August 8.?A private telegram ^ lias been received from Jackson, Mississippi, . showing the telegraphic communication has 11 been reopened with that place. x A speeiat despatch to the Appeal, dated Brandon, August Gth, says Ransom's Division of Grant's army, with seven inusquito gunboats, 1 descended the Mississippi, and opened the Bayous in West Louisiana. A heavy Yankee 1 force ascended the St. Charles River in search P of our force in Arkansas. Dunt (?)a brotherin-law and partner of Grant, was captured near Lake Providence, La., by Col. Mat. F. Johnson's guerillas. The Confederates recaptured several thousand slaves with Dunt. The Yan- " kee force is motionless 011 the Big Black, ex- ^ cept the expedition to West Louisiana. ^ ; Chattanooga^ August 8.?One hundred j and ten Yankee cavalry, including two com- ^ missioned officers, captured by Rifles at Union ^ City, West Tennesee, arrived here this niorl ning. ? ) [ From llie West. Mobilk, Aug. 10.?Persons lately out from ^ Vieksburg report that Grant has gone to supercede Meade. Gen. McPherson takes Grant's - place. Gen. A. J. Smith is in command of the 1 Post of Vieksburg. r I Morton, Aug. 9.?Col. Logan is again at 1 work. A few days since lie attacked the cue- j ! my, 700 strong, near Jackson, East Louisiana, ' routed them completely, killing a large number j and capturing '200 prisoners and two pieces of 11 artillery. This is official. c Morton, Aug. 10.?There is no news of in! ... fj tcrcst in front. Sherman's quarters are near Osterhaus' old quarters, about two miles from ' the Big Black bridge. Two divisions have been 1 t moved back to^tlic Big Black to avoid the contagion which still exist to a frightful extent ' in Steel's division. His pickctts are this side of the Big Black but none venture more than > . . n three miles from the river. Accounts come ^ j in daily of the atrocities of the enemy. One ' 1 Mrs. Sanderson, of Natchez, has been hung by ' i the cueiuy because she refused to disclose the I whereabouts of her husband. The Post office ' ! 1' I lias been opened at Jackson. t , J Atlanta, Aug. 19.? A special.to the Ap- ^ | peal from Brandon, of tlie 8th, says Logan enj I countered at Jackson, La., live hundred mi fantrv and 200 cavalry with two pieces of ar- c] : tillerv. lie killed and wounded a number and f I ! captured the artillery, 200 Yankees, and two f( commissary wagons. (] 1 a i Grant Reinforcing Meade.?There is no n fj longer a doubt but tliat General Grant, imrac- h , j diately after the surrender of Yicksburg, rein- c i forced General Meade to the extent of 15,000 , to 20,000 troops. The troops were sent on board transports at Vicksburg two days after a its fall, and arrived in the Chcsepeakc about a s] fortnight since. The Fifth United States Ar- v tillery, batteries E and B, the lGtli Pennsyl- d > vania, and the 32d Massachusetts infantry ac- d 5 companying the reinforcing column, which o I was under the command of General Smith and C | Kelley. f Appointment.?The Petersburg Express ft states that Gen. Hood, of Texas, has been ap- & : pointed commander-in-chief af all the cavalry tl in the army of Northern Virginia, and that tl i Generals Stuart and Wade Hampton will rank c as Major-Gcncrals under him. C \ a rite New Emperor of the Mew Empire. Who is Maximilian? is a question frequently sked. Wc suppose him to be a scion of the ouaparte family, in which there arc two perils of that name, grandchildren of Eugene leauharnais and his wife, the Princess of Baaria. Eugene was a child of Josephine by er first marriage, and a great favorite of the Imperor Napoleon, who, in 18C6, adopted itn as his son.?He was subsequently appointed ieeroy of Italy, and married the Princess of lavaria. In 1817 he had a son, called Maxnilian, who entered the service of Russia, and 1 1839 married t^c Grand Duchess Maria ucolaiwena, daughter of the.Fmperor Nichols. By this lady he has had several children wo of whom are sons?one, Prince Nicholas laximilian, in 1841, and Eugene Maximilian^ orn in 1847. Is the Emperor of Mexico the Ider of the two? There is none of the Bonaarte blood in their veins; but they are so allied ? that family as to be Considered a part of it. 'he choice of such a person would be evidently stroke of policy. It associates with the 'rendi dynasty the grandson of one of the lost, distinguished monarch* that, have oeenmed lie Russian throne, and it would serve to add istinction and power to it. The present Ycnch Emperor has adopted the wisdom of is uncle for his own guidance, and one part of hat we know was to strengthen his position' brough every ramification of family ties. The French in Hlcxictir. Richmond, August 7.?General Foray's despatch to the French Minister of War, Jnne Oth, says : "I have just entered the City of Mexico at lie head of the array. The whole population eceivcd the array with an enthusiasm which (ordered on delirium. The soldiers of France re re literally crushed under showers of garands and boqucts. "I have hcen present with all the officers of ny staff at the Te Deum in the Magnificent athedral of this capital, followed by an iranense crowd, with cries of" VivcVEmpereur !" fhis population is strongly desirous of order, ustice and liberty. In ray reply to their rcpcscntations, I have promised them these in he name of the Emperor." . Respited* The Co?.federate prisoners, Jesse M. Lawson aid Wm. 13. King, who were sentenced to be uing on the 7th of August, 18G3, for conpiring to counterfeit and utter Confederate itates Treasury Notes, have been respited for ixty days, doubts having been snggested in cgard to the legality of the conviction, and hat an opportunity may be given to take an ppeal.? Carolinian. ( hrk for jjrinking.?mi/aris tuey cure Iclirium ircaments by subjecting the patient to lie constant vapor of spirits. They soak liis ood in Brandy and give him nothing that iocs not smell or taste of it.' Shut in a cell nd breathing nothing but alcoholic fumes aturc at last vindicates itself, and the patient aathes the smell and longs for the air. A ure is made in about four days. Proposed Interview uetween Napoleon nd Victoria.?The Gazett UniverScl du Nord, peaking of Queen Victoria's contemplated isit to Germany, says that it is rumored in iplomatic circles that the Emperor Napoleon csircs to have an interview with the Queen n her arrival in the month of August at tho hatteau ofRosenan, near Coburg.
