It Is, In truth, nothing but a stock-Jobbing transaction, In which Wall street la the moving power. The whole secret of the attempt to enlist Congress In the bust n us, is to be found In the fact that the stock uf tho Harllan and Delaware Bay Company la now worthtosn, and has been distributed among parties who have undertaken to give It a temporary value by obtaining an act of Congress recognizing the existence of i he road. In other words, It la an attempt to ,ct money under false pretences, andCongrcaa is nought to be made the Instrument by which ihc fraud mi be made successful.

The Wllkia tlaral Court-Martial. Wtdntiday, March 2W. The Court, In Ita aesslon to-day, waa principally occupied In hearing the cross-examination of Ben Parley Poore, Esq., the Washington correspondent of the Boston Journal, relative to a letter bearing upon this case, published In the New York Times. Before adjonrnment tho Conrt decided that all reporters of the press must be exclnded, and testimony suppressed from tbopuhlle hore aftcr. Thla proceeding on the part of the Court Is a alngular one, and looks aa though an attempt will be mado to create a bias against the accused, aa thla peremptory order comes Just at a time when tho prosecution has ex hausted lta testimony and published It to the world. The accused now Is forbidden the same opportunity through the great public medium, tbe press. Unless the Court reconsiders their decision, our readcra may not expect any far ther account or tho proceedings of the trial.

Tho General came down from hla quarters, and a very pleassnt levee was held by him. Many of tho ladles succeeded In getting tho Gcucral'e autograph, an object which was eagerly sought for.

Tho i clebratlon of Good Friday la enjoined by the Lutheran, Episcopalian and Bomon Catholic churches. In their seal to depart from the practices of the Catholics, the Pres byterians and Puritans of England discouraged the obecrranco ol this dsy, ss well aa that of the other holidays and fast days of tho ancient church. There la now a disposition among their representatives In tho modern religions world to revh a the solemn commemoration or the anniversary of an event so Important to mankind. The practice or holding religious services on Good Trlday la becoming more and more com mon, oven among thoso whose prodocessors In tho faith would have scrupled at taking a step wblih seemed to bring them a little nearer to a community of ceremonial observance with thoso from whom they had separated them selves. At present theso scruples seem to have lost their force In the Commonwealth of puritanical Con necticut, we may remark, however, tho annnal fast has been fixed by tbe State Governor upon Good Friday, from tho time when the memory of tho oldest Inhabitant runneth not to the contrary.

" A lesions wife at a ball In Philadelphia the other evening created aome excitement.

The window from which I look out on tho street and over the beautiful bay la wide open, and the soft air Isfullorthescentorflowere. Jonqnlle, enow drops and other flowors are peeping out among the rubbish or the neglected garden. About 12 o'clock I took a ride down tho smooth beach to see tho rnlns of the ancient forte built two hundred years ago by the Huguenots. Tho works sre or coqvtna, Impeded or petrified shells, like tho material or which St. Augus tine Is built. Nesr br are thirty or fortv cabins of the con trabands who have escaped from the main land. Scorce or dusky figures, mostly old and de crcpld, are sitting about in the eun. A rew of middle age aro "listing" tht ground for cot ton. Innumerable children are playing and shouting) and close by a stunted palmetto are "two women grinding at a mill," ono smoking a short pipe, the other cheerfully singing a dis mal hymn. It was hsrd to believe that In this ace or machinery such a slow and laborious Eroccss should bo needed to get meal for dally road; but on theso Islands no other means were provided by the slave-masters. The Smith plantation, a mile south, Is occupied by teach ers, most accomplished and self-sacrificing women, whose labors, though derided by the thoughtless and unfeeling, will bo rewarded In the great hereafter. I should have mentioned earlier that thla morning I attended a land salo at tho mansion whero Edmund Rhett formerly lived. The bid ders were a motley crowd ofllcers, soldiers.

The rarm eonslsted or one hundred and ten acres or good cotton land. The bidder, aa 1 waa told, waa "raised" on or near It. A little coterie or New Yorkers, who hsd clnbbed to purcheso together, ad vanced tho price by HOO. " Eleven hundred," said the black soldier. "And fifty," tald the chief of the club. "Thirteen hundred," the negro returned. When tho price had reached nineteen hundred dollare there waa a pause. It appeared mat the colored man's ma was the best. At this point the chairman of the commis sioners, Mr. Brlabane, stopped the auctioneer, ana maae a narangno to tuo euect mat wniiee and blacka were equal beforo tho law. and that both had tho right to bid) that tho negroes had reservations made for them, to that thore need be no delicacy in biaaing against a biaca: aoi dlert that while white men outrht not to com bine against black, on the other hand black men ought not to combine against white. Tbe speech was cautiously worded, but Its drift was unmistakable. When be concluded the otinreased New loners rallied and bid sss.uuo.
