"Now, young span, as you are setr tied in town," said an uncle, "I would advise you to take a wife," "With all my heart, sir; whose wife shall I take?' We trust our friends will- overlook anything wrong in our columns, for we can assure them that the moving of $ printing office, esppcially a daily, is ottached with much inconvenience No fun .in it whatever. For want of time, we are prevent pd from giving, particulars of the turn-out day-before-yesterday. The O Do amrnbm. h assic soil of the of o in ion s faC to bes thebody scenes oftheSoutbern olutlon will 'be enacte4*, A*ead4 L the clangor of arms rine g from her mountain heights, aindathroqg her valleys, where naugt has been heard but the gentle w .ispeaipgs of love and peace, the tread of A~i"led: l@ gions is resoip4iing.. Soot will her hir fields that pow smile with the harves of plenty, trepinbe .beneath the shock of contending armnies; soon will her streams that were ,wout to bear upon their bosoms the asgosies of wealth and the winged messengers of commerce be crimsoned with the blood of human beings; and soon will the breezes waft from her shores the sound of deadly cannon and shouts of victory mingled with the ighs .of .the dying soldier. Sihe waited patiently and long be fore assiuning a conspicuous part in the tragedy of revolution. She stood as an impassible barrier between the contending sections, immovable as the rocks of her.motutains, and ex tending one hand North and the oth er South she cwlselled pease. But when she saw the determined spirit of the North to fasten upon the South the badge of bondage; when she heard the proclamation of the rulers at Washington calling for men to overrun our sunny land and subju gate our free born citizens, the old State put on her corselet and shield, and placing a snowy plume in her helmhnet tookls the post of danger at the head of the forlorn hope. It seems now as if her soil had been sown with dragons teeth. Arm ed men spring up from every quar ter and her territory is one vast en campment. Her drum heat is heard from the valley of the Shenandoah to the line of the old North State ; from the peaks of tho Blue Ridge to her cities on the sea. Nobly thus far has she sustained the prestige of her revolutionary re nown. The blood of her fathers still flow in the veins of her children, and the eventful present reminds her of the heroic days of yore. The glori ous motto-sic semper tyranni., which she flaunted in the face of George the Third, she bears high in the heavens to day; and if Lincoln and his myr midons have not felt its terrible im port before now, it will break upon their bewildered visions ere the Idea of July, And when that pompous renegade and ungratetful son, Win field Scott, raises his parricidal arm to strike his dear old mother, he will find there is yet a Yorktown in her dominions, and that. the fate of 1 Cornwallis will be revived in his de generate name. Although we of the 'Gulf States have done much to strengthen the arm of the noble Commonwealth, we can do more if it be needed. We know.full well, if cities are to be sack ed and tields devasted, hers will be the first. Nor have we forgotten that the shafts which were whetted for our bosoms will be averted by her broad shield, We feel almost as sured, in the acknowledged compe tency of her leaders and the known bravery of the troqps now in the field that the scale of battle will turn in our behalf; but if the cry for help should come, the whole South will respond in a voice that will cause mole terror to Lincoln than blanched the cheek of Belshazar, when in his unholy festival he read the unknown writing upon the palace wall; and its interpretation will be as fatal to his hopes, as was the prophet's of the symbolic words to the King of Baby ;oa, S e Daily News. dEIy Beg. wa, d.,June 11h. f Gov. icks eall aid r ai - ck, iyalty .i strong amo the legislature.

A report is afloat that thee vac uation of Harper's Ferry has com menced, but it is known that Gen.

Baltimore, June 11.-.--Butler mov ed several regiments to dislodge the Southernors at Great Bethel, nine miles from Hampton, At Little Be thel, a German regiment, mistaking the signal, fired on Col. Townsond's column, which was marching in close order, with two pieces of artillery. Other reports say that Townsend's regiment fired first. The German's fire killed one and wounded two; The Albany regiment discovered by accoutrements on the field, that the supposed enemies were friends, but had previously fired nine rounds. L)uryea's Zouaves hearing the firing, turned and fired on the Albianans. At daybreak two regiments moved from the fortress to support the main body. Little UJethel was burned, and the army advanced towards Great Bethel. arriving there, they could see neither men nor batteries, only flashes, and their comrade falling. A well con terted movement might have secured the position, but Brig. Gen. Pierce seems to have lost his wits. Lieut. Gribbe, U. S. Army, and twenty-five others wore killed, and one hundred wounded. There is intense indigna tion against Pierce for not ordering an earlier retreat of the Federalists. Washington June 11.--It is not known how many were killed at the capture of Little Bethel, where the Federalists whipped the Federalists. The fire of the F ederalists at Great Bethel was apparently harmless. The attack lasted but half an hour, when a retreat was sounded, which order was promptly but orderly obeyed. Estimated killed about 30: wounded 100. Major Winthrop, aid to Gen. Butler, and Lieut-Col. Grinnell of the New York 1st regiment are missing. The attacking force was the Dur yea's Zonaves, Townsand's Albany regiment, detaphments from the Ver mont apd Massachusetta regimpnts, Col. Allen'sregiment, And Col. Hiar ris' regahnent.
