A Threatened "Prkssubi."1 The Louis
Ttlle Journal threatens a "pressure1 upon the
president, not likely to be successful under any
circumstances, ana still less when lie Is thus
.notified that It Is n concerted, concocted and
il pre-arranged "pressure,1 mid under tho an-
spices of men who proclaim Ihclr alliance with
tho John Van Durens.and Fernando Woods of
the North. These Kentucky politicians, who
speak of the New York and Pennsylvania elec
tions as "our victories, are not In a position
po speak otherwise than as tho eucmloa of the
" The LouUvtlle Journal U apprehcnalvo that
the rcmoTal of Qen McClcllan Indicates that
tho President " w 111 not modify or withdraw his
emancipation proclamation.' Here, It did not
need thru Indication to satisfy everybody that
tho Prestdcnt will bo as Inflexible In adhering
to that pollcj as he was slow and cautious in
adopting It.
Tho tnoihti ojterutiJt of getting up n ";
mre ' to overawe the President, Is thus sketched
by the Louis I lie Journal:
"It deeply behooves tho Conservatives of tho
nntlon, comprising a vast majority of tho loyal
l.nplc vigorously to bestir themselves In ever)
patriotic and legitimate wav. Tlioy should at
oneo address themselves to the work of pressure
In behalf of tho Constitution. And It Is to tho
n strenuous performance of this work that mo fain

A ConnECTioH, Wo are assured by a gen
tleman of tho highest respecttblllty and thor
oughly loyal with all, that our correspondent
waS mistaken In supposing that tho 'jrrlma
donna, at the roucert, on Sunday evening, wore
A head dress Intended, on her part, as a coin
plemcut or recognition of the Southern Confed
eracy, Shelias been aeenstomed, he says, to dress
thus from childhood, and had not the remotest
Idea that she wai giving offence to anyone.
She Is the w Ife of a gallant officer In the U. B.
service, and has a daughter about to be married
to an officer In tho regular army. We are cer
tain that our correspondent had 110 Intention of
giving offence, but was actuated solely by a pfg
trlotlc sense of duty to cose to public repro
bation tho too frequent attempts, on the part of
some persons In Washington, to show their
sympathy with tho rebels.
We are glad to know that a lady of sneh rare
musical talent Is heartily lo)uH3 tncflag of
our country mid though from taste she wore
npon her head, on this occislou, the "ret,
while and reJ, It was not out of reg ir for the
Southern Confederacy
We make this correction on tho authority of
n gentleman who assures us that the hdy In

The New Orleans Vieaynuet of October 31st,
gives the following at count of n recent llbt al
Ba)OU Lafourche:
It appears that on Monday tho Confederates
marched 2J mile to Nnjoleonvlllc to meet tho
United States forces, and then, to select a suit
able position, they fell back nine mile to the
spot where tho engagement looked ire.
Tho Confederates, wo learn, nnmlcrcd ulout

of tho Eighteenth Louisiana Vonm term.
Tho Unltetl Stitcs forces, on arriving at Na
polconvllle. It appears, lieird that Iho Confed
erates hid fallen backtaudlmmedlatcly pressed
forward In pursuit, feeling for them with shell,
oecaslonilly,os they advanced. Towards four
o'clock In tho afternoon tho United 8 tales forces
came lu sight of the Confederates, who were
drawn up In position.
Iho fight nt once commenced, iho United
States forces opened with shell, while the Thir
teenth Connecticut and tho Ltghth New Hamp
shire were crossing the bi) on, under n brisk
tiro from the Conn-derates. The twonglmcnts
named attacked tho Confederates In front. At
the same time, tho tkvent)-llfth New York
marched up and took invdUon lu the nnrof the
Thirteenth Connecticut. TheBLveut)-liniiwas
not under lire. While the Confederate were
attacked In front, u bodv of United Statis cav
alry advanced to attatk them lu Hank, but
about the time they got within llghtlngdlstancu
tho Couftdiritis, unable longer to withstand
tho vigorous onset made by 1111 overwhelming
force, surrendered.
Tho Hi;ht did not last more thin half an hour,

would not, and, drawing a pistol, shot tho cap

The Iondou Awruor, nollclog tho death of
Princess Dorothea, of Courland, Duchess ofSa
gan, at her castle In Prussian Silesia, on tho
10th of September last, gives on Interesting re
view of her singular career. She was born Au
gust si, 170J, and was the )oungest of four
"laughters of Prince Peter, son of the celebrated
Ernest John do lllron, whom Anna of Hues I a
raised from tho dust to the hiirhMt ii(mtilM in
tho empire, glvlnghhn tho Duchy of Courland
a but n slight token of her fav or. liy the will
of his father Peter married In early life; bnt his
violent temiM'r made his matrlmnnlnl mtn n
v ery unhappy one, and he brought two wives to
tho grave bcloro he was thtrtv 3 ears old. Then
he mado the acquaintance of Ann Charlotte, of
Meiiem, tlie uinghter of a poor (lerman noble
man, iosscssing a small property in uourund j
and. attract el br her tiliTsIeal and tnntfl
chirms, ofTcrcd her hi hind, which she ac
cepted. The offspring of this union were four daugh
ters, who for a long time were held to bo the
most perfect beauties In Furopc. Uniting tho
gjiarm of nnusinl Intellectual capacity with
the Bvmmelrv of corporeal Perfection, tho fa mo
of the four princesses of Courland spread
through tho w hole of Kurojie, nnd poets came
to sing their rates, while kings worshipped
at their feet. All had numerous brilliant offers
of marriage; but, by lho advice of their mother,
each of the four princesses made a love match,
or what was held to be such. Tho eldest mar
ried a Count of Bchutcnburg; the second the
rnncooi Jioucnzoiieru-iiecnlngeiif tbe third a
Duke of Accrcnzat and the rmmermt. Dnmthrai.
ttie Count do Talleyrand Perlgord, nephew of
euu great. inucyrano,a general in me French
army. It wos this last-named lady who died
tiut u few weeks ago, as Duchess of Baffin, after
as eventful n career as ever fill to tlie lot of
duchess or princess.
Tho union of Dorothea, of Courland. with
the Count de Talleyrand, afterwards Duke do
Dlno, was not a bippv one, though professedly
a lovo match. Tho Princess was onl) sixteen
)cars old at tho time of her marriage, which
took place on tho M of April. lhO". and so full
of radlauthtautv, that ufltr the first month nf
tier arrival in fans, trowd used to follow her
earrlagolu the streets wherevir she went, and
musses of people stood for hours nn.l.r tint
burning sun or In pouring rain, lo get a glimpse
of her sweet fire. For a while, the Count's
anlt) wusgratlllcd bv this adoration paid to
ins )oung wire; nut, Mux in his Inmost nature,
bo iiitled by getting tired of even this enJo
nieiiL,and liefnre long Ire lied the Princess with
utter neglect.
I be knowfetfgu orthH could uot long bu hld
len from the golppers of thu miou. and had
the constiiutneu of bringing forwird a host
of oi en admirers and ftift among them Prince
Talleyrand. Iho great statesman was unable
to nuie his lervent uiluuratlou or Ids )oung
niece, aud conlldlug In his relationship, offered
ner too proiLtiionoi ns name ami iHsition.
Shrewd far bc)ond her age, the Princess Doro
thea neither refused nor accepted this protec
tion; but while treallugTalle)raud tu variably
as a kind and loving uncle, managed to keep
him for some time at a respectful distance. This
nit until) tntnaoett mo antor ol tlie euamoreU
diploinutlsi, who henceforth, aud forthertKi nf
hi life, becumeone of tho mot faithful ami
sincere friend 4 of the Princess,
ProhabI) there was uot u fielug lu the world

iteiui), no wus couiicici) captivates, alter
somewhat fuller aeiiualnlauce, by tho geniality
of btr Intellect to such an extent that uot un-
frcoucuil) her advice ruled the most Important
of tils undertiklugs. An Immediate point of
s) m pal by between tho Print o and his niece was
established In tlie dislike of boiti to tho person
and court of lho Emperor,
lho refined maimers of thu Prince's Doro
thea recoiled at tlie Innilevulgarlt) of thu gen
erals aud field marshals, aud their low-born
si noes, w tio gav e the ton at tho 1 ulllcrles; and
tho often coarso behavior of thu mighty Cusar
himself appeared to her anything but Imperial
or heroic, llelug Imprudent enough to give
vent totbeso feelings In occasional speeches, the
Princess soon cumu under the notice of Foue he's
mvrmldoras, whoso reports enraged Napoleon
so much as tn make him forget tho respect due
lonprmceiv iau) not ins sunjeci. naturally,
therefore, the dhllko nf Talte) rand's niece to
lho Fmpemr soon grew Into hato, fanned as
tho sentiment w as b) theeuttlng sarcasms of tlie
arch diplomatist, In which he free 1) ludulgedln

Influence which Tallevraud exercised over a

and before long sbo declared herself, without

Notwithstanding tho difference of age, the Prin
cess being flftv-tliree and Prince Felix tint tblrtr-
one, he professed to reclpnicate her feelings,
and agreed to take up his al-odc at Sngan. The
union oi ncans was soon drawn sun closer uv
a union of budgets. Prince Fellr directed oil
his creditors to apply at tho Schlos of Sigan
for payment, md the Princess was too much In
love not to take tho bint thus given, and paid
bills to the amount of very nearly the legae) left
to her by her great uncle.
Prince Fcllr entered tho Prussian House of
Lords In 1847, and achieved a conslderablu
success as ono of the leader of tho Conserva
tlvo party. Unhapnllv. through the Influence
of the Duchess of Bagan, bo was chosen the

Frankfort, where, with his Prussian lord f. .1

Felix, In com pa ii) with a friend, took a ride
