Thn tsyal masters will recover tlieir slaves and the wages tt.ey have earned ilmii, f tfcsir U wporary nss by the military ssthetities; but it is nnd-r4tond that all masters ho are in open hos tility to 'be Ounstitntion of tbeir country will lose their slaves, the title to wi ich only exists by farce of that eery Constitution they siek to destroy. ( No influence must be used to en 'ice slave fria their matters , and if fugitives desire to rel urn to ther masters they will be permitted to do so, but on the other hand, no force or nndne persuasion will be permitted to recover such fugitive rroperty. 0(D t r cf the at my. from Osnerala to Lieutenants, most nnt employ such fugitives for servants. The Government provlies to each officer a tiutinct pay far bis servant, aad this to ample for ths hire of a freeman. Were' we to em ploy each fugitives as servants, our motives would be misconstrued; whereas, their emplopmeot by the Govern ment is in pursuance of Uw, is cl arly within the rules ef war, and will inctease our effective force by the nam. ber of negroes so emplcytd.

The utmost contempt and indignation is felt for Gen. Butler, and his order is univer sally regarded as most infamous. The rebels expected to be defeated at Kichmond, and had made all preparatioa for iil.n;ir back upon Columbus, (?) which place was etrongly forti fied. The buildings for the capitol, and those for the residences of officers of State had even baen selectad. All the cotton had been re moved into the interior. ' The Governor of South Carolina had caused all the negroes to be colonized near Greenville, some three hun dred miles in the interior. They are under the supervision of agents appointed by the Governor, and ar to plant corn and potatoes for tha unbsistence of the armv, and are to be fed and clothed by the Government during the contiauance of the war. ery few slaves were to be found in Savannah or Charleston they were so scarce as not to bo procured for servants, evn when $1 50 per dsy was ofiered for them. The rebels were iuiet sanguine of their ability to procure thrir iadr-pendence, and regarded it as only a matter cf time. Boys of eight and ten years of ase wera formed into, home-guards" at Charleston and Savannah, and had acquired so much skill m the use of arms aa to bo able to Jiit a mark in the shape and of the size of & man at a dis tance of thirty rods. These precocious defend ers, it was said, were to mount shed3 and fences when tbeir cities wera invaded and shoot down the Yankees. . Mrs. Livingston said : ' I wish I could ee President Lincoln. I'd tell him to put a stop to the foolish farce which has so long disgraced our cause, and not to consent to any more massacres of our brave soldiers. I d tell hitn not to permit another battle to be fought until our side has as large a force aa that ot the rtb els; then to have ono grend trial of strength, ana it we cannot subjugate them, and put down this rebellion, then let us acknowledge the corn, and withdraw from the contest." A Gemerewa Criminal. A young man recently made his escape from the galleys at Toulouse, lie was strong and vigorous, and soon made his way acroes the country, and escaped pursuit. lie arrived next morning before a cottaga in an open field, and stopped to beg something to cat, and for concealment while he reposed a little; but he found the inmates cf ibe cottage in the great est distress. Four little children sat trembling in a corner; their mother was weeping, aud tearing her hair, and the father walked the floor in agony. Ine galley slave asked what was the matter, and the lather replied that they were that morniDg to be turned out of doors because they could not pay the rent. " 1 ou see me driven to despair," said tho father "my wife and little children without food or shelter, and I without means to pro vide f-r them." Thecorvi' lnrjd io we ?ev-v;b ?vt. pawv, uc! -ixjn said, " I wiil give you the means. I have just escaped from the galleys ; whoever secures and takes back an escaped prisoner, is entitled to a reward of fifty francs. Mow much does your rent amount to V " Forty francs,", replied the father. " Wei-," aid the other, 44 put a cord around my body ; I will follow you to tho city ; they will recognise me, and you will get th fifty francs for bringing me back again." "No, ntwerf" exclaimed the astonished listener, "my children should starve a dozen times, before I would do so base thing." The generous young man insisted, and de clared at last that he wou'd go and give him self up if the father wouii not consent to take him. . After a long etrugg'e the father yielded, and taking his preserver by tho arm led him to the" Mayor's office. Everybody was sur prised that a little man like the father had been able to capture such a stout young man, but the proof was before them. The fifty frmcs were pa d and the prisoner sent back to tho galleys. But after ha was gone, the father aslted a private interview cf the Mayor, to whom he told the whole narrative. Tha Mayor was so "much affected that be not only added fifty more francs to the father's purse, bat wrote immediately to Ihe Minister of Justice begging the noble young prisoner's release. The Minister examined into the affair, and finding that it was comparatively a small offense which condemned the young man to the galleys.-and that ha had already served out half his time, he ordered his re lease. v " ". , - If the rebels can' live npon Confederate notes, they had better see if they can't Tide up- on 40m I toftoowt - Can t'ue American Pccplc Bear tbeTruthT From tb H Y.

While, by the enemy's permis lioa, we were thus engaged, he took" the oppor tunity to commence an unperceived retreat. tnd, by day light the next morniosr, be was tafely across the Ripidan, except a part of his fear guard. Whoever furniehed th8 reports of the battle to the telegraph felt the need of some argu ment to convert it into It Victory. He accord ingly founded a verytolerablu a'gument on a Very apochryphal fact- The Herald, yester day morning, in taking us to task, repeats the argument thus: - Stone wall' Jackson, a rebel general, ac knowledges his defeat by the customary mode, recognized the world over, of begging permis sion to bury his dead. The; e journalists, pre tending to be loyal, assert that the rebels were victorious, and virtually deny both tb Union and rebel generals' versions of the affair. Do' the editors of the Tims and World know better than Stonewall Jackson whether or not he was defeated?" The same number of the Herald contains a letter from the battle field which states that the permission to bury the dead was accorded by Jackson to us, not sought by him. This statement tallies so muoh better with other known facts that we are inclined to credit it. Why, if we gained a vic.ory, did our dead lie unburied from Saturday till Monday ? Why were hundreds cf our wounded left in a broil ing August sua without surgical attendance, or any alleviation of their hunger and thirst, except what was administered by Uje rebels? Why Gee.

He would advise men not to enlist until tbe war was conducted to his idea, and that idea was that slaves should be used as soldiers.

The Govern ment calls for a contingent, let us suppose, of iuu.uuo recruits, lor 1862. The .Legislative Body authorizes the levy to be made. Each deparltm-nt of the Empire, of which there are now eighty-nine, is required to furnish a quota, based upon the amount of its population. The mayors bod lists of all individual born in their" respective .communes, and notifications are sect to every male child born in 1843 .tbe dw-fLing sge being twenty years) that he is to present nitmeit n sucn a dav, at the tnatrt. to take part ia the drawing. This notification is a mere formality, as every young man knows when he will be required to come forward, and it frequently happens that young Frenchmon, residing abroad, return to their native land at this period, for the special purpose of fulfilling a duty, which, if they choose, might be readily svi.iueti, uy sitopiy remaining out ot r ranee. To illustrate the mode in which the drawing takes place, we will suppose that a particular commune is required to furuish 100 conscripts the total number of eligible young men "be ing say 500. iive hundred bits ef paper are place 1 in an urn, of which 400 are blank", and the remainder, marked from one to one hun dred, oblige their holders to "fall in." The 400 who havo escaped are now exempt from military service, unless some extraordinary event such as an invasion of France should demand the calling out of the entire arms- bearing population. iho mode of raising recruits, as bas be6n eeen, is simple enough all being anorded a fair chance. As regards exemptions, the French system is scarcely less simple. In the flrsi placn, the conscripts undergo a rigid med ical examination, and if any are found labor ing under physical disability they aro at once discharged. Next in order are the exemptions of aoutuns de famiile, or individuals with fami lies dependent upon them. Thus the only son of a widowed mother is exempted. So also is tni only brotner of an orphan sister, .brothers of a soldier still serving in the army are ex emf'ted until tho lalter's term Bhall expire, only one of a family being drawn at one time. A wite cannot exempt her husband, even if there be children, as the law holds that young men ought not to marry until they have fui filld their military obligations to the State. A fast dais of exemptions has a pecuniary feature. In former vr-ais, that is to 6ay, up to 1850, no conscript not exempt by physical debility, or by other causes above enumerated, could escape service, except by producing a substitute. This bad givon rise'to a degrading species of trade or speculation, in which large numbers of man sellers and buyers were en gaged.' 15ut under the system referred to, the conscript who bought a substitute was respon sible for Ins substitute, and if the latter de serted or died before the expiration of tbe seven years' term, was liable to be forcodback into the ranks. This Fystem waa abolished in 1856 by order of the Emperor, and the government itself ac cepts pecuniary indemnity for tbe withdrawal Of a conscript, and practically pays for his ub.titute by offering an umple bounty to vol unteers. It is arranged that tbe sum received and paid by government e hall vary according to the military exigencies of the country, but the present basis is as follows: A conscript is exempted for 2400 francs ($480,) and the gov ernment pays a bounty to volunteers amount ing to 2200 francs ($440,) making a profit of 200 franca by the exchange. The growth of the human body, and tbe laws which regulate it, have been made the subject of investigation by Dr. Libarzik, of Vienna. lie states that .he period of increase in man is divisable into twenty-four epochs, amounting in sum to twenty-five years, when giowth ceases. The first solar month after birth constitutes the fitst epoch, each follow ing epoch being a month longer than the epoch immediately preceding it, i. the second epoch is two months, the third, three, and so on ; the whole twenty-four epochs com prising three hundred months, or twenty-five years. Dr. Libarzik affirms that by the laws ho baa developed, the stature of the adult may be predicted from the proportions of the infant. He makes, also, some interesting state ments as to tbe development of tho vocal powers. The new born child emits but a single inarticulate tone. At the twenty-first month, five tones are mastered, at fourteen years be commands six notes, and, at last, u the full grown man masters tbe wnoie gamut, making, with the native cry, a total of nine modulations. Boot aad Shoe Market. BoaTOH, August 16. The demand for boots and shoes continues to fall off g-adually as the season advances, and the past week there has been less activity than previously noticed. The trade, however, is fully up to expectation, and has been throughout tbe season. The stock of good on hand is small, and, with the orders now in tha hands of manufactures for future delivery, in connection with the amount of goods wanted for army purposes, we do not look for any increase ol stock tcr some months. We look for very full prices, but the cost of manufacturing has lately been materially in creased. . Workmen are scarce and 'receive good wages, and pricas of all kinds of stock rule comparatively high. Desirable goods, in consequence, must continne to command full, prices. r Manufacturers are quite busy and filling or ders at fast as the limited number of workmen will allow. Business in the manufactui ing districts promises to be good, for some months to come. In hides and leather no material change has taken place during the week. , Abchb.shop Hughes ok th "War. The sermon ef Archbishop Hughes on the war is eminently conservative and patriotic. He comes out unreservedly in favor of sustaining the Union and the constitution, and thinks the whole people ought to demand to be drafted, in order to make short work of the war, and ia order to avoid the danger of foreign inter vention in consequence cf protracting (he Jti-asniona ror Aagatt. From L. Folcte.1 t he fashionables are gradually d'-sappearine from Paris, but .the-'toilnLs with w.i.;.v tui provide themselves plainly declare that they ' have no dasise to leave fashion behind them. -' For the morning or for traveling, simple dressei, as we have beforo said, are more in good U&ii thaq. any thing elaborate. White is in great favor just now. It ia worn not only in lhslip, jaconet or picque, but also in alpaca. Indeed, white alpaca i very fashion able, and suits both fair and dark complexion?, which white delaine will not do, as it casts a slight yellow tmgo, rendering it impossible ftr a brunette to wear it.- The dross ia com pleted either by a Spanish veite or a saute-en-barque. We would advise a blonde to have hers trimmed with three rows of mauve taffetas, each about two inches wide, round the bottom of the skirt. . If. the Spanish veste is adopted, it must be trimmed with one band of mauve; if the saute-en-barquo is preferred, thtt must have three rows round it. But a brunette should have ber white alpaca niado with throo narrow Cuted flounces, each headed with a black velvet. Tho pockets also trimmed to match. Among the novelties we may notice bands made of Russian leather. They are worn with different dresses, but above all with tha chemisette and vest... Nothing but Russian leather is considered good taste, "and no buckle must be worn; it ia simply fastened bv a flit double bow. Very narrow straps of perfumed Russian leather are also formed into watch chains, and take the place of gold chains (for a season at least) wtih silk dresses. The trimming of skirts are not worn higher tbaa the kneo; ' frequently only a single flounce set oa deep plaits, with a space left between, and. not wider than four or five inches, or sometimes seven or nine inches in width, but always with a heading. They con tinue to trim the bottom of skirts with a nar row plaited ribbon, rather more than an inch wide, and, as it is placed invide and reaches a nttie below, it preserves tho bottom of the tskirta from cutting, now they aro worn so long. Three rows of narrow frounces, two or two and a half inches, widei, are worn, trim med with three rows of braid, a deepe? shade than tho ground of the dress, or of a color suiting that of the design. Above each flounce are put three rows of narrow ribbon, about half an inch wide, and a row of braid, or sometimes they cut the flounce on the bias, which, when in striped material, produces a ' pleasing effect; and fbunces thus cut are edged by several rows of braid, tbe color of the stripe. , . Skirts .made with ono flounce have that trimmed sometimes at the bottom with, three or live rows of barrow velvet or galfu, wavad with a velvet of four or five inches wide, with three narrower on each side ef it. ' Tma Mnd of tiimming ia always put upon too dre&s in , tunique fashion. Visiting bonnets are extremely elegant and light. The following are Some of the most ad mired: , A bonnet of drawn white tulle, with bands of black lace upon the curtain, which have a blue ribbon hemmed in the edge. Upon tha edge of the front a scarf tulle illusion is grace fully folded, forming a coquilio in the middle cf a bunch of blue foathcra. The inside is . trimmed with a diadem of blue flowers. White strings. A pink crape bonnet, the edge trimmed with ruches of crape, forming deep curves on either side in the style of the Marie Sluart. A band of plated piuk taffetas ia placed on the front. The curtain is of pink taffetas, covered with white tulle. Strings of pink ribbon. The in side is trimmed with white blond, pink eglan tine and rosea. - - Hats aro universally worn in the country. Tho shapes and styles differ slightly. The most aristocratic are the most simple mostly made of. very fine Leghorn, trimmed with white and black feathers. A black' laco scarf is tied round the crown, and fal's over the shoulder. So mo are lined with piiii or white taffetas and edged with black vulvv", . bunch oi tea roses, witn loluige. A curled vnue feather lightly covers tho flowers. Some years ago a man without a familv or relatives lived in a county in Arkansas, and was possessed of an estate worth five thousand dollars. He went to New Orleans and was absent four yesrs without being hoard from. ine jrrooate Judge granted administration on his estate wound it up and discharged the administrator. The man returned had been to Mexico when in the court the following dialogue took place. Dead man If your honor please, I want my euevLs ruvunieu o me, as you see X am not dead Court I know as a man you are alive and in court, but, as a court, I know you are dead, for the records of the courts eay so, and against their verity there can be no averment so says Lord Coke and a good many other books I never read. Dead man But I want my property, and its no difference to me whether your recerda lie or sot. I am alive, and have ntt trans ferred my property, and to deprive me cf it without my consent is against the law. Court If you intimate that the recorda of this court lie, this court will send you to jail. Dead man Send a dead man to jil. Court Sheriff, take this apparition out. Fakk Tbadk to bk Establish id is Bba ZIL. The Brazilian Government ia now dis cussing the question ot opening the Brazilian ports to the navies of the world, and of declar ing free trade in all the parts of it vaat em pire. According to private letters from Rio Janeiro, the measure would extend to the in land trade all along the course of tha Amazon and other great courses of water. The Brazi lian Government ia solicited to establish froa trade from the fact that naval construction and freight is twice more costly in Brazil than in. any part of Europe, and that the lingering of navigation along its coast naturally paralyzea the trade and iuduttry of their vast empire. At a late speech in Rockville, Indiana, Ex Governor Wright was speaking of the pro priety of putting the negro in the war to do the drudgery, and to save our soldiers from the ditches and trenches. A copperhead Dem ocrat ia the crowd cried out, We have enough while men to finish the war." " Yea," said the Governor, " we have white men, but they are not all of the right sort." Exit cop perhead. Pritty Talk. Tbe Richmond Examiner, of tfce6tb, in a long editorial oa intervention, has the following sentence: " England could better afford, and her gov ernment would prefer, to see five millions of her operatives starved wo death, rather than to see tbe civil dissensions of this country henled, and its afTiirs embarked again on the career of prosperity on which they were mov ing two years ago." Cowardly Sklf Motilatios. Four men in the town of Dan bury, Ct-, recently applied to a surgeon to have their bands dressed ; three out of tne four having deliberately severed tbe forefinger of their right hand, and the other tbe forefinger of the left hand the latter mif taking the hand and demanded a certificate of exemption from the draft.
