Tbe Bremen steamer, which arrived at this port to-day brought R latter from General Garibaldi to a warm per sonal friend in this city, describing the enthusiasm with which the Italian people ere welcoming him. He says the dream of a Uui.td Italy 1* now not all a dream, and that the day is d awing nigb when Venice will Dot only be emancipated from the Auatrian yoke, but that home too will be frea. He refra'na from detaiie, but adrnon bbc* bis friends In America to be of “good cheer," and w jo.n with bim in the hope that another year will not pars away before the Aujtrian despotism in Italy is de stroyed. He also expresses ths wish that the civil war in America should be closed up as speedily as possible, so that the many gallaot Ku tpsac* now in the anniee of the North raav have as opportunity to return home to strike for liberty in tbe Old world. There is, 1 fear, but little of the spirit of tbe primi tiee a-u,sties animating their professed follower* In thaee degeneratedavs, or else the Sectary of the Booiety for the Increase of the Ministry of the Protestant Episcopal Oh arch would never be compelled, as be is, to make pub lic tbe fact that there ere now no fewer than five hun dred pAiiehta, in tbe Northern States alone, which are vaoart at prefect, the largest proportion of which were ia country plaoe* aud unable to pay large ariaries to tne r*ctor: and this, too, when there are many ministers s’uidi'ig idle in the matket place, unwilling to acc pt aid labor in anv of these parishes, but waiting tor par Lbra in the oiiy, or in the Urge towns of the W.a4_— Thifii flavors more of itlacbni*nt to tbs kingdom of this world than devotion to the Kingdom of God.

It thinks the “lecoiwtruction of the Union” a “most delicate aud difflenll undertaking." R ad tbs following: It ie imposiible to say what kind of Union the irro ais’ible power of arms might establish and for a brief period maintain, but any supposition that ths thirty f*ur States which constitute, or have consliuted, this repub lic can lx* bouad p»rm.\aen:ly tocether as a republic upon the principles and on the conditions insisted on by suoh politicians as tbs Senators io Congress from Ma— sschusetts, is an absurdity that only fools and fauatioa could pces bly cherish. Then follows this frank confession : If every Southern rebel were dUaimid to-morrow, tbe reconstruction of tie Union would baa most delicate and difficult uodcrUkirg Dffrer.oJ of views even among conservative men would be enough to render it so.

The destruction tf property has been immense; much more so than necessary. True, all the cotton was ex p;gied to have been burnt; but why the sugar and ao lasses on tbe levee was sacrificed in the manner it was, that is, carried eff by pilferers and the rabble, wo cannot say. A part of a cargo of provision!, just landed from Red River, wee also stolen. If the agrarians had made an equal division, it might have been of more benefit, but some parties, not ratified with baskets and bag* ol sugar, rolled away hogsheads, ether* barrels of sugar ; in foot, never was such a soece of pilfering heard of be fore, nor such scenes as ocourred last Friday in this heretofore peaceable city. Measures, it will be observed, have been taken by the authorities to put a atop to thee* disgraceful doings. The telegraph has informed us that th* enemy fired upon a crowd of women and children.

We do not commend the ac t (n of tbe young meu who provoked the uoforua'e if f-ii, but we cannot refrain from condemning the cruel y o! tbs parties who could level their guas at a crowd for tbe fault of two or three. We take tho following from the Charleston Courier of Monday: The Sjhtiog between our gunboats and those of tbe eueny is reprevemtd as 'erribly severe. The McRu, commanded by Incut. T. B.

Tho M icon (Ga ) Telegraph pu jlishet the following account of "The 8'smpeda" at Bridgeport: Mr. Cowles, who returned to Macon from Chattanoo go, yeeterday, gives a deplorable account of the Con federate stampede at Bridgeport, by which a most im por.an’- gateway to Georgia was opened to tho enemy, and the possession of all our rich mineral deposits of coil, iron and saltpetre placed in imminent danger. A guard of abent knO men had been pho’d by Q:c* ersl L a ^better oa the Western end of the bridges at Bridgeport.

Accordingly, Gen. L started lor the eocue of actioo with a special train, taking with him reinforce ments to the number of KuO men. Bom after his arrival the enemy approached, to the number, as was supposed, of ton to fifteen hundred, and o. cned fire upon oar men.

BavKBian MaoacniB. Mrjor General Commanding Right Wing. Chir'xii PaxacaiMi.— It was sta-ed in Sunday’s ta ttle ol tbe B gisier ib»t there would be religious rrrrioe ou that day at 3 P- M., at the B«p.iat Church cn Bay street, by Unagu kie, tba Cuipain of the Chon k-e bet (aliiou, now in C-iup Occoao-toa, near thus city. At the appointed tin- tba bi'Ulliou formed in double b e, and marched und r an elegant (Jo..fed rate fl g, under aommaud of M»jor Q. W. Morgan. Enreritg lhedir lit tbe e«t»t end of X tin street to its iaiererction »! K Gay, tbe uoope attired in tbeir new dress, continued the match, and entered tba Church iu an ord-rly and u iiet manmr. It ru at ouce see# that public expect.tic* was eo high as Io bare drawn out a larger crowd ti t« the building could accommodate. Aaiff.r wm made if the f.rst Presbyterian Crutch, and the meeting »u ad journed to that Urge and ccumod.cua budding.— l’be pews on tie sou b side of tbe aisle, oq the ri-ot side, were aMigat-d to and at oio* occu pied by the Cherokee br*rea Tne Reverend W. A H trrleoi. paito.- of tbe c u-cb. in rod a red to the audiet^e “our briliier Jnsg.ikie, JhapiJn of tbe yptr r.-hec i a*ta •on," and trie services commerced by reed ing and ringing (in tbe standing pos.ur.) a I yarn in tbeir o*ad:Vect. Tne typ^e resemble a Ijttie tbe H brew, » t u’. are read from tbe ifl't s.de, as ogr common language. Prayer followed, the chaplain and bis braves ail k eibtg. Another hymn was sung, usd lha text xuuounced, is found in Lukt, 8 cbep : 43d v.-rro. Tne sermon waa like tbe entir* sere ce, delivered in tbe original Chero kee language, but was addressed alike to all hie aaditcrl, wherev r s a'.ed or of wb tever complexion. A short address to hts own people, and tbo usual tened cticn clo cd the er-rric-e Tnsy were probably two hours lung, ft and in every part t,l then. s-u-rcu tbs Ui-.d attc-tioa Of a very Urge auditory!
