The resolution from the House extending the payment of large bounties to that day, is still pcadlug.in the Senate, and sccrrts to. meet with sbbte Opposition in that body. A dispatch from Memphis confirms the report that a severe light took place at West Point, j Mbs., oii die 21st nit., between Gen. Smith’s: Union cavalry and the vmufd rv>l [ Confederate 1 forces under Forrest, Lee, ChaJmccs*and Roddy, j. Gen. Smith, after losing a number of men in I killed and wounded, and three field pieces, pre viously spiked,.fell back, ‘hisj rear contimmlly harassed by the enway/ and finally reached Mem phis on the 25th. During his expedition, how ever, he destroyed over a million bushels of corn, tore up and destroyed many miles of the Mem phis’ and Ohio Railroad track, burned many bridges and trestles, captured and brought in over ■ 1,500 mules and horses, about 2,000 slaves, and* over 300 Confederate prisoners. His entire loss is not known, but it is said to bo much less than the enemy’s, and.the result of the expedition is ; claimed as a decided succets. General Long,street, according to a Knoxville | dispute!), was still on the retreat at last accounts, j On the 3flh ult. bis headquarters were at Green- ; ville, and his rear bad been attacked by Union cavalry Sear Dean’s Station on th2?th. Gen. Schofield was pursuing with bis troops, but owing to. the rapid retrea t of the Confederates, no cn- . gagement was expected this side of the Virginia line. Five Confederate officers, who had desert ed and came into the Federal lines, state that Gen. Longstveet is retreating to Richmond with his original troops, JeaVinjj Johnston and Buck ner to tho Virginia border. The Navy Department has received information that on tho 11th ult. tho United States- steamer Q'ueeH captured the schooner Louisa, of Nassau, ■when three miles off Brazos River Pass, in the attempt of running into the mouth of that river. Her cargo consisted of Enfield ri ties, powder, salt,’ sugar and whisky. On the night of the , 30th ult. the United States gunboat Kennebec, off Mobile, captured the steamer Gray Jacket, from Mobile to Havana, with a cargo consisting of cctfoh, rosin and turpentine. She had also rwentt’-three passengers, who were transferred 1 to the steamer Colorado. 1 Noticing was done in the United States Senate ' on Tuesday ia relation to the resolution to ox- j tend the payment of bounties to volunteers until ■ the Ist of April, so that there is every probability \ 1 that the pending draft, to take place on tho loth, 1 inst., will not be postponed. Orders are said to 1 have reached the authorities of New York on ■ Tuesday from Washington, that it will certainly take place on the lOtli. ! A dispatch from liogersviile, Tennessee, states' 1 that the Union forces have reached Morristown, * in that State, and that Longstrcet is in fujl re- 1 treat eastward, marching upon both banks of the * Holston river. Rogersville is in Hawkins conn- | ty, tut tb Rplaton river, and about sixty miles 1 ea*t of Knoxville, ifcrristown. is in Jefferson county, oa the East Tennessee and Virginia. Roil- ' road. The Union forces are southwest of the 1 Confederates, i • • 1 There are rumor* from the Army of the Poto mac that exciting news, may soon bo looked for. One of the Washington papers learns from put ties just from Culpeper, that heavy firing was -heard on Monday in the direction of the Rapidun, and a little to the left of Culpeper. Both tnus kalry and artillery firing was beard, but nothing watkßowa concerning the nature or extent of the conflict. There is a report fhat'General Logan’s cavalry hud proceeded from Huntsville, Ala., ahd suc ceeded in joining General Sherman at Selma, and that General Thomas bad advanced on tic Confederates at Dalton. Richmond papers state’that Gen. Bragg is on doty in that city, and under the direction of Jeff.

Faithtol -Ministku of Hbalth.-Alu examining the vessels at the various wharves we find among tho curiosities of our commerce the brig Miranda, just in from Truxillo with a cargo of Honduras Sawapariils for Dr. J, C. Ayer & Co., of Lowell. So particular are this firm as to the articles used in compounding their various remedies, that they have this drug, like some others they con sume, gathered for them by a skilful agent of their own in the tropical regions of its growth.— He informs us that there are many species of this plant, but two of which are really valuable in medicine ; the qualities of those are also affec ted by the time of gathering, mo if a of curing, 1 (Jig., operationj jn that region of unrelia ble workmen impose a heavy labor upon him. One of the inert varieties of ttumparilla grows wild in our otvu forests, while several others, nearly worthless, abound in Central and South America, the intelligent agent assured us that the virtues of this dnig had never been folly told, and that the reason of the low esteem in which many hold it is mainly duo to the importation of such immense quantities of the worthless varie ties. His accounts Of his trips to Honduras and his business excursions along the Gulf of Dulce and the rivers of Montagua and Santiago and among the adjacent mountains were of intense interest.

A Ranting Radical Reformer. [ "Wo giro below a paragraph or two from I a recent lecture of Parker Pillsbury, a pro minent abolitionist, ia ! New York. The JUup/'eßs of that city remarks that Pills bury has been muting in this spirit fur twenty years or more, and tho nearer he gets to success the more he rants and raves. If such fanatics would enlist, Low they would fight or—run. We quota : Tbn dyinjf of slavery will be as if death and hell gave up the ghost together; its fu neral should bo attended by assembled bends; its dirge, tho full orchestra of , devjls damned ; its fall, blackness of dark i ness forever; its grave on seme distant, un j known, and if possible, undiscovered plan- I et, where no voice could ever reach, though I it waked dead nations from tombs of ten thousand centuries in the unfalhomcd cav erns of the oldest ocean. (Applause.) Mr. Pillsbury went on to narrate the acts of the government, as illustrating its oowardly and bell-inspired dealing with, slavery. . ... Earabbas Schofield, he said, was pre ferred in tho West before Fremont.— General Halleek after his order No. 3, was made geaeral-in-chief. General Phelps thought slavery unconstitutional, and But ler rebuked him. -By aud by the eyes of Butler were opened—a miracle scarcely paralleled since tho Damascus miracle—the government removed him. The Presi dent, before taking his seat, was smug gled to Washington on the underground railroad in disguise, and addressed the Southern Rebels in his inaugural as his ‘•'misguided friends.” The speaker said tho proclamation of emancipation was of about us much effect as heat lightning ia summer. It emanci pated those slaves over whom the govern had no control, and held those over whom it hud control in bondage by the power of our armies. While one slave is held in chains Pjrcsident Lincoln is a Jeff, Davis, in daring rebeljioa against the Jehovah of Hosts. Babylon was drunk ou tho bipod of saints; we are more drunk on the blood of the slave. We arc throwing our sons and brothers to tho dragon of slavery as the Hindoo mothers threw their children to the crocodiles. The President is cal led a second Washington, when merciful ly ealliag to the Rebels to come and take back their old rights; but with no word of succor to the slavps, and it seems the intention to elect him a second term by spontaneous combustion. . War’s Desolation. MELANCHOLY SCENES IN LOUISIANA. A correspondent, writing from Baton Rouge, under date of Jau. 21, says : “The oountry-along tho river, between this place and Natchez, presents a sad spectacle, Much the largest number of residences and plantation houses are de stroyed. Every where may be seen black ened chimneys, all that is left of once magnificent mansions and extensive negro quarters. , There can be frequently counted from fifteen to twenty chimneys in a cluster, with not a vestige of a house to support them. Nor are such sights uncommon for miles along either side of the river.— Not one plantation is left uoburned ; the torch has been applied indiscriminately.— Nothing but ruin and desolation meet the eye on every hand. What few build ings remain undestroyed are abandoned, the doors demofishcd, and the windows broken. But little is left of the once pleasant village of Bayou Sara. “1 visited an abandoned plantation atout fourteen miles above the ruins of the above named town. About fifty yards back from the river bank; stood what bud been a large, magnfiioent, tastefully built mansion, three stories high, with a large double gallery in front, and an observato ry on top. A short distance further buck I were extensive negro quarters, looking like a Northern country village. The changes which destroying war has pro duced on this spot wpuld Sadden the heart of the most abandoned, and will scarcely be croditcu by those who hare not seen it ( with their own eyes. I passed through the I house,:garden and family buryingground ; observing minutely the changes produced, i Not a vestige of a fence could anywhere 1 be sejn. Tho house was completely gut ted of every thing ‘valuable*, except a few book-cases, clothc's-presscs, bedsteads, and a private billiard .table. “The large doors were broken down ; some had pannels punched out. Win dow* were broken in, as if they, had been stoned by a squad of school boys. The articles ef furniture above named were completely demolished. The railing of , the stairwhy was smashed to pieces and the fragments carried away. One of the billiard tables was robbed ef the cloth j that covered it The floor was strevyi] with [' fragments of books, periodicals and private letter?. ’ The plastering on the walls was broken by a club, or camp axe, and a bay ionet had been driven against its polished lairfaGc, causing a huge, unsightly hole to appear. . i From the bouse I passed into the garden. Hero odoriferous flowers and delicious fruits in other years were succeeded by noxious weeds cud briars. Tho green house, onoe filled with all manner of trop ical plants and flower pots, was now com pletely destroyed. The glass was all bro ken out, Jhc flower pots either carried away as relics or demolished. A few venerable, lonely fig trees were all that was left to indicate what had once been an orange grove or a fig orchard on the plan tation. “Passing on, a little lakelet now assumed the appearance of a pond on the prairie. “I now calne to the family burying ground where tho bodies of two or three generations had apparently been deposited by tender and loving hands. Large walls had been constructed of brick and mortar. Beautiful marble urns had been torn from their accustomed places, broken and scat tered over the grounds. Every vault had been broken into, coffins opened, and some times broken to pieces. “At Baton Ilougc nothing remains of tho once magnificent State House but the blackened walls, which stand sad monu ments of the destruction wav visits upon a nation.” Tin; Spuing Campaign. —Tho Wash ington correspondent of tho Chicago Times speaks of tho recent appropriation of $600,000 to place obstructions in tho Potomac Elver, as timely, in reference to future attempts on Washington. He says: ' * I seriously believe that such an attack will be made. Indeed the evidence before me will not permit mo to think otherwise. Of all the delusions with which tho peo ple have been humbugged for throe years past, the most cruel is that which has re cently emanated from persons if) high posi tions here, to the effect that the rebellion is now r on its last legs, and thrft its mili tary power is broken. I will venture to say now that tfye events of next March, April and May, will be as startling as a clap of thunder, ami will convince the world that the rebellion is now relatively as strong as over, and that its armies are more effective now -than ever before. Secrets of Comfort.— Though some times small evils, like invisible insects in flict pain, and a single hair may stop a vast machine, yet the secret of comfort lies in not suffering trifles to vex one, and in pru dently cultivating an undergrowthrof small pleasures, since very few great ones, alas ! are let in long leases.
