Dem abolitioners P are de uliserablist pooh folks I eber Y did see. Day aint wuf shootin.-Ex- v amuiner. t The following views are those ex- v - pressed by the London Times : t 'Thel' United States of North Ameii ca have ceased1o'rbe. Whether their place will be tarpon by two Unions or tw.ulty-whelther the principles of c,'ofedotntimn will be merely limited * r o, disolutely discarded-lnobody can venture toforetell; events which will leave the last state of things with much resemblance to the first. It t w9 ii have been seen, indeed, from ,E : New York correspondence that ;!1. staunchest Federalists have now br ugght themselves to contemplate thi. disruption of the Union as a p. .ible result. n- hle Subjugation of the South Im at p :ible.-Enough has now been at Ir.: to show that the subljugation or- otthe South is next to unpossible, and its submission in the highest de gree improbable. \:e need say little in detfence of an an assiunption that the conquest, ,,f the South by the armies of the North Ie has now become a most improbable ice event. All the incidents of the war ot appear to have been in favor of the ,il. Colnfederate States. In the only emn o.r gagemnents approaching to the char acter of a p,itched battle, the South ern troops hlave been victorious, and 2v- though we hear little of their ope s'r rations, it is at least certain that they teur art! aggressive, amid that the Fede ch ral Government is alarmed for the mit safety of the capital. I itherto, the a lapse .f time, while it has evidently ic- added to the conftidence of the South, tI." has bro.' ht little accession of ao strength t. tthe North. The Statks ig adhering to the Union do indeed con i.he tribute ml., ý and munitions on a scale a a which des ;.onor to their patriotism, ind but, they b:t tidions are undisciplined, h," ill equipped, and what is more than as all, insubrdinate. The reverses and up privations of an unsuccessful war sull are very different from the glories of ttle the brief campaign which was con Il's te1nplated by the Presideint's volun *a teers, and the jealousy which the tifl Americans entertain of all authority lisl finds its expressiou even in a camp. al's On the other hand, the Southerners, ole less addicted to the institutions of de he mocracy, less imbued with ideas of d a social equality, and conscious proba But bly of a more desperate position, dis have carried far greater energy to the it I work of war. We can see that in ar the South power is concentrated and id obedience enforced, and we find that the natural result is a clear mintary superiority. The .' We haves t hands thanks t0 the couoty. wras fº feien, Mobi eNewa andt h, of the evening df h :e 1t Bri t ters contained in both. from Pen~co la correspondents she~bat -lite light over the someLswat e afiusedAcounts already received by, telegraph. The expedition. was_ under the command of Brig., Gen. Runnels, says one account, while another names Gen. Anderson in that capaci ty. The authority for the first state ment is the special osqrespondent ,of the Advertiser, Register and News; for the latter a private member of one of the Mobile companies is , the au thority. From none of the letters or tele grams received does it appear how many and what troops of the enemy were met on Santa Rosa Islandiby the gallant adventurers, in this night attack and surprise. The Billy Wil son Zouave Regiment is all that is mentined, and that was put to flight, at the first attack. So that whom it was we fought with, long enough and a hard enough to loose so many men as we seem to have done, is still un explained. " One of the letters alluded to says : | We drove the entire force encamn | ped inside the fort; though I'll tell r you we bought our victory at an ad - vanced rate. We are over 100 short this.morning, and have about 15 or 20 in the hospital Gen. Anderson - was wounded, but not mortally. We took 7 prisoners ; among them is Major Vogdes, (Bill Browntookhiim),i rr but I tell you those Minie rifle bullets r do whistle some, sure. I got off scott f ftree again, though I had some" close d shave. · Another, in the same paper, says : 1 The skirmish is described, as ter It rible. Our company (Mobile Conti rt nentals) was represented by 13 men, n who acted as spikers and burners, at one of whom was killed and one w wounded. Aboui fifty of our forces were killed and fifty more wounded a and missing. Gen. Anderson, the commanding officer, was wounded in a. the arm. Several of our officers ns were killed. a The telegraph accounts already e, published by us give the loss of the e. enemy as being very great, and our own, forty in killed and wounded.- uL The number of our men engaged in e,, this expedition is variously stated : th the special correspondent of the Ad le vertiser puts it at 1000; one of the ar Telegraphs cornspon dents says "1250 Le of us left Pensacola ;" and the o her. n- one of the citizens of Mobile, who tr- was in Pensacola, bu, not in the en h- trrprise, says "the f ,rce was 1400 1d men." ,e- We must await tl. official report Y of the officer leading the. expedition, Le- or, at least, of the Pensacola papers, he for a connected and comprehensible he account of this spirited au1 .gallant ly affair.-Pi~ "yunte. .h, of Hon. John C. Breckinridge: it is i currently reported, has jdined Gen. ole Buckner's ::rlny as a private. It is n, said that he will issue an address is 'd, a few days, resigning his seat in the an United States Congress. nd * o Postage Stamps.-The publico will be pleased to learn that the PostoffiBe Department is at length about to he commence the issue of letter stamps. ity ''he five cents stamps . will be' dis 'P tributed early next week. Various ' causeshave rendered it impracticable, we are assured, to afford the public ba- this convenience before. We' have on, seen a proof impression of the new Le stamp, and think it will compare Li favorably with those of other govera bat ments.--Richmond Dispatch.
