Charleston advices received at New York #re not so late as Confederate accounts, but give a different version of the affair at Stono river.— The Confederate oattery was captured, and the guns removed on hoard the Federal gunboats | The Federal loss was two killed and five Wound- , ed, and that of the Confederates one killed and ‘ five wounded. Advices from New Orleans to the 27th ult, report that Gen. Warren had crossed Matagorda Bay, Texas, and occupied the town of Indtanola, j without opposition. An expedition of ti rce ne gro regiments, Under Gen. tllinian, has bem sent to the month of the Red river. *The"Federal loss in the recent affair at Charles ton, East Tennessee, was fourteen w unded and one missing. Five ' Confederate officers were Captured and one hundred and twenty-six men. There is nothing ot moment from the Army of the Potomac or from the Valley of Virginia.— On Friday last a portion of Col. Lowell’s com mand captured nineteen of Moseby’s men found secreted in different houses near Mlddlcburg, Loudoun county, Virginia. The Confederate army, it is again reported, has gone into winter quarters, near Orange Court House. A despatch from Philadelphia announces, on the authority of “refugees” from Richmond, that Gen. Longstreet has received heavy reinforce ments. This statement, however, needs confir mation. On the 18th alt., a fight occurred near Fort Gibson, in the Cherokee Nation, between one thousand rebels, under Quantrell, and about six hundred Federals, under Col. Phi'lips, of the Indian brigade, resulting, after an engagement of several hours, in the defeat of the former, who were scattered in all directions, leaving fifty killed and wounded on the field. The Navy Department has received official in formation in relation to the attack upon the gunboat Marblehead, in Stono Inlet on Christmas morning The Marblehead was struck twenty* times and much injured. Her foremast was cut, and she has twelve shots in her hull, one between wind and water. Eighteen shots struck on the upper works and aloft, due 30-pound shell lodged in ihe steerage, hut did nut explode, which shows that the Confederates had some thing more than mere field pieces* A Washington telegram slates that there are indications that the Confederates, under General Early, contemplate a movement towards Win chester, and perhaps beyond that town. A sub sequent despatch, dated ut New York yesterday, states that advices from Cumberland, Maryland, represent that the Federal pickets at Winchester had been driven into Bunker Hill. Major Thomas D. Arniasy and Lieut. Daniel Davis, two Confederate officers recently convict ed by court martial of recruiting within the Fed eral hues, were on Saturday conveyed to Fort Warren, having been sentenced to fifteen years imprisonment. “The Maryland Farmed and Mechanic.”—We have received the first number of this work, pub lished by S. S. Mills & Co., at No. 24 South Calvert street, corner of Mercer, Baltimore. It is published monthly, at $1.50 per year, and is devoted to Agriculture, Horticulture, Rural Economy aud Mechanic Arts; and if we are to judge from the number before us, it cannot be other than a very valuable work to farmers nod mechanics. The Jauuary number is neatly printed on good paper, and filled with useful in formation. <■ . ’ — rr***. — Fike Insurance Company.— The Fire Insur ance Company of this county met at their office in this towrn on Monday last, and after adopting several useful and necessary By-laws, in addition to those already in existence, unanimously re elected all the old officers. From the report of the Secretary it appears that the affairs of the Company are in a very flourishing and satisfac tory condition. 1 Although they have had seve ral fins during'lhe past year,, they hove met promptly, and satisfactorily every demand upon jjf The Ice Crop.— Thte present spejl of cold weather has furnished abundant material for filling ice-honses, and onr people seem not dis posed to let the opportunity pass, tea harvest ing has been the order of the day ever since the cold weather set In, and most if not all of our towns-people hare already filled their hou^s. — Last winter many persons failed altogether to get ice, bnt certainly node can complain' this season.. * —_ j ■ ■ Frozen to Death —On Saturday morning last John R. Uagnesf, living n*nr Aberdeen, was found within about a mile of his own home frb zen to death. We lenrti that he arrived at. A berdeen Id the evening traiti from Baltimore,.land immediately started oh foot for bis heme, about tw4 miles distant, alter which nothing was heard of him until found ns aboveigfated. —; i • afcaec Rsr.ieious Bon ct.—-There will be Divine ser vice at Rook Spring Church, on Sunday morn ing next, the 10th Inst., at II o’clock. The Rev. Mr. Hewitt will officiate. , Daniel Webster in His Coffin. , Wc find ihe following accbunt of the I private funeral of Col. Fletchei Webster, j.and of the insnecti'D of hw illtr on* father’s retrains. in the Plymouth Rock : The tomb at ♦Marshfield once again opens wide its portals to receive the last of the sons of the “Great Expounder,’’ The funeral of Colonel Flqtoher Welf ■ ster took place at his residence in Marsh i field, ou VVednesday, Sept 10th. The | body was brought down from Boston in a ! richly caparisoned hftrrse with four horses, b\ way m Hiiigham and South Shore ! Several coaches oqv.eyed his Boston frieuds from kbe Kingston depot, while a large assemblage gathered from the neigh- I boring towns. Rev. Mr. *Alden, the vil j lage pastor, conducted the services, the ! body resting on his father’s writing table j in the library, according to his dying re quest. A large procession followed his body to the tomb, where the coffin was deposited with the family whom the na tion mourns, i By request of Peter Harvey, Esq., and I others, the oaken box containing the great | statesman's coffin was opened, and the | metallic cover of the glass removed.— 1 H w were the feelings of those personal I friends stirred within them to find those lineaments and features, which no man ever looked upon to forget, retaining the same color aud impress—natural as when ) ten years ago they gave him up to the grave ! The eyes were more sunken, but the heavy shadows beneath the brows were always there in life. Even in death,,and for a decade the captive of death, that kingly presence inspired the same deep reverence and speechless awe as when in the living temple of his matchless m.nd. Said one who looked 4 upon his face again, “I forgot all else, aud cannot tell you anything of the tomb or surrounding oh jvets.’’ The velvet pall, with its rich em broidery, was in perfect preservation.,, though deprived of its primitive gloss. lu silence the lid was dropped and the box reclosed. Farewell, thou great de parted ! Earth’s communion with thee is o’er. No more shall human eye behold that face over which thought aud feeling once flashed with the light and shade of that‘'imperial mind.’’ Rest, noble states man, with thy patriot sons. Thy memo ry “still lives/' enshrined in a nation’s admiration and gratitude. The Government Expenses. A Washington correspondent of the Tribune says that the Treasury estimates for next year, instead of 81,200.000,000 as stated by sonic, or 8990.000,000 by others, the sum total is expected to be but little over 8700,000.000, viz : War Department, 8585,000,000; Navy, 8140,-1 000,000; Civil List, 825,000,000; Inte rior Department, 810,000,000. A Washington correspondent of the Baltimore iSm estimates the total Govern ment expenditure from the beginning of ilie war to the end ot the fiscal year in 1805 as follows : For extra session of 1801.8265.150, 000 ; for regular se-ston of 1801, 8894,- .900,000; tor regular session of 1862-’3, 6978,120,000—t0ta1, 8-,188 170,000 ;—! old for estimates for next fi.-eal sear, 81,- I 200,000,000—total 88,388,170,000. The i above sum is to be augmented consilient-) hly by what are called mdefmite'apprnpri ations, and it is subject to reduction, in so far as the question of debt is concerned, by incomes from revenue or internal taxes during the year in question. Thu latter may not be more than a stand off to the tenner, if as much.— Newark Journal, Movement to Revolutionize Ire land—The Fenian Brotherhood is the name of a new organization, which is said to number scores of thousands in this country as well as in Ireland, and the movements of which, up to the present time, have been conducted in private.— Now, however, they have held a conven tion in Chicago, at which resolutions were adopted declaring that the organization will keep dear of American party politics, but will seek the aid of every lover of' Irish liberty, here or abroad, to further the work of promoting a Revolution in Ireland. It is aimed to separate Ireland from Ih'ttuk rule , and the Fenian Broth erhood propose t'a resort to bloodshed to do this. At the Convention in Chicago there were 325 delegates from various parts of the United States, the Canadas, and Ireland, and the resolutions and speeches were very distinct as to the ob ject of the organization—the independ ence of Ireland, to be achieved by force of arms. There ae said to bo 80,000 of the Bro therhood in Ireland, and nearly as many more in this country. It is stated that much uneasiness is felt ou the subject by the British Governmeut.— Newark Jour nal. • - .• _j iti> ■ • 1 > “Loyal- Men.’’—Some" “loyal mer chants” were in NeW York last Friday. They werP loadihg'uue (if tlic Cromwell steamers with contraband ‘goods, powder, cape, &c., for the rebels. These goods w|e concealed in fhe middle of other goods—siiine tbeni : ,in Wrels of pota toes. These liierchahfs had hpen so "Joy-■ irf’ -that they had not bveu suspected.— They had assumed o much piety, so much regard for the w.if, so great a horror of “traitors” and Copperheads, that they had passed along bravely, affording ‘ aid and cmhfort” and “powder aud cups” to ;be | Rebels. It is very remarkable, too, that the officers conceal their names, asMirirte us only that they wore “loyal ” It should not be overlooked that the Cromwell steamer receiving tliese contraband gomls belonged to the sahie firm who owned the Chesapeake, lately seized by Hebei pas sengers —Hartford Trines. | The Irish and tlie Negro. ; Mr Henry Ward Beecher, in a letter to the Star, asserts that the negro owes his degradation to the Irish settlers, that no Yankees, but only the Irish despise the negro or oppress him. It would, per haps, exacting to expect Mr. Beech er to toll the simple truth, he dicing a popular sensation preacher, also a Yankee desirous of conciliating the English, and setting up his pulpit among them. Still the falsehood is so flagrant, that be should fear some slight odium when it is found out—for it might prove unprofitable.— Mr. Beeeher is no fool; he could not. have made a mistake through ignorance. He well knows that all Congress and State [ laws against the negr arc' American,! i Irish in Mh 'Legislatures being very few,; if any. He knows the Fugitive. Slave ! Law, the law (as in Iowa) which totally' excludes negroes from some Northern! States, and that (as in Ohio) which ex-; eludes any further influx of negroes, are American and not Irish Protestant negroes have to form congre- 1 gallons by themselves, from the general!-1 ty of Yankee churches, as from Yankee! white omnibusses and railway carriages | they have been excluded. Tito Irish, on the other hand, meet them in their church es on Sundays, honor them as priests oc- , casiooally, and as Sisters of Mercy, as iff 1 Baltimore and Philadelphia, and New Or leans. S ime Irishmen may be rowdies: and opposed to the negro—but are they ■ not, always led on by the Yankees ? Mr. Beecher is an Amalgamationi®!, wants intermarriages between white and black. Why did not he and his friends, show the example ? Mean is the man ’ who flics from his country in danger, but, how mean, contemptible, despicable is he I who, having enriched himself in thatj country, having urged that country into! war, crying for a “war hotter than lire, ! redder than blood” —yet when that war conns, sells out his luxurious picture gal leries and wine cellars—to devote the pro ceeds to his country’s wants ? No, but to abandon it, and seek in safe London a new spot wherein to accumulate wealth ! Lei such a man, if he cannot learn to blush, at leas' not. obtrude his effrontery on public; view— Dublin Irishman. Army Chaplains, Estimates difl’er concerning the value of the services rendered by our army | chaplains. Mr. Taylor, army correspond j ent of the Chicago Journal, makes the I following observations on the subject: i Bur. how about chaplains? you ask,, • and though an ungrateful business I will be frank to tell you. I have met three dozen men whose symbol is tho cross, and of that number two should have been in ! the "ranks, two in the rear, one keeping the temperance pledge, one obeying the: third commandment—to be brief about it, five repenting and eight getting com i mon sense. The rest were efficient, faith-' > ful men. ) Not one chaplain in fifty, perhaps, lacks ; the paving stones of good intentions, but j the complex complaint that carries off! the greatest number is ignorance of hu-! man nature and want of common sense. —! Four cardinal questions, I think, will cx-| haust the qualifications for a chaplaincy : Is he religiously fit ? Is he physically fit? Is Ire acquainted with the animal' “man ?” Poes ho possess honest horse sense? Let me give two or three illus trative pictures from life: Chaplain jA has a puttcrimj demon ; he is forever noT letting things alone. Puss ipg a group of boys he hears one bath, stops short in his boots, hurls a command • meat at the author, hears another and reproves it, receives a whole volley, arid retreats pained and discomfited Now, Mr. A. is u good man, anxious to do duty, but that liubit of his, that darting about oaiiip like a “devil’s darning needle,’’ with a‘stcWoiypcYd proof in Iris eye and a pellet of rebuke on thetip of his tongue, bolts every heart against him. i Chaplain B. preaches a sermon—regu lar army fare, too —on Sunday, buttons bis coat up snugly under hi* chin all the other days of the week, draws a thousand dollars, and is content. Chaplain C. never forgets that be is C., “with the rank of captain,” perfumes like a civet cat, never saw the inside of a (Jlig tent, never quite considered the rank and file fellow beings. Of the three, the boys hate the first, despise the second, and U;— the third, J, L_J ' ; i . The Awe of Purity Restored Fourteenth street, Washington, is said tp contain, throughout its whole length, south fro n Willard's, not one hobso that is not a house of ill fame. A contract has just been made to build u house of the same character that is to cost 880,000 ! Old Babylon and ancient Rome were mod elk Of purity, compared with Washington under Republican ruler-*the parly whose platform was to “restore the Government ro the purity of the Fathers.” Perhaps they meant the very eaHy Fathers—tfiasi who lived in HefeulaneUrn and Pompeii and the exhumed stony symbols of wlms faith and practices hVo iiWnoderti times’ excited the astonishment (but not the ad miration) of beholders. —Hartford Timet, Villainous Conduct.
