lowed to see, as it is thought to contain important evidence for Government. An account-book was also found, containing in the back part a list of vessels, probably captured by the rebels, as follows: Jacob Bell, Star of Peace, Oneida, Commonwealth, Kate Dyer, Lapwing, Colcord, Henrietta, Clarence, Estelle, Windward, Carrie Ann, Aldebaran, Byzantium, Isaac Webb, Shatemuc, Whistling Wind, Tacony, Goodspeed, Mary Alvina, Arabella, Umpire, Maringo, Florence, Ripple, Elizabeth Ann, Rufus Choate, Ada, Alfred Partridge, M. A. Shindler, Kate Stuart, Archer, a sloop, Wanderer. The following is a list of chronometers found on board schooner Archer: Bark Tacony, going; bark Whistling Wind, run down; brig Umpire, going; brig Clarence, going; ship Byzantium, going; bark Goodspeed, going. It appears from the memorandum-book that Lieutenant Read and crew went on board the Tacony about the fourteenth of May. On the twenty-fifth of June he seems to have burned the Tacony and gone on board the

The Yankee hosts are coming, With their glittering rows of steel, And sharp, from many a skirmish, Comes the rifle's ringing peal, Warning you how very near The Northern “Hessians” are, With their overwhelming forces, But ne'er must you despair. For though they come on surging, Like a mighty rolling sea, They're hired by their master, “Abe” -- You fight for Liberty. So bravely you must meet them, And face the cannon's blare; Your watchward, “Victory or death,” And never you despair. True, the cloud is dark and lowering, But behind a cheerful ray, And the night is always darkest Just before the break of day. Have faith; the cloud will soon disperse, For the light is surely there; The day will soon be dawning, So never you despair. Go, emulate brave Washington, Who led a little band, To drive the proud oppressors From off their happy land. The enemy outnumbered, By far, the “rebels
teamer Little Ada, chartered by the State, has been loaded for three weeks with about three hundred bales of cotton ready for sea. She lies thirty miles from Charleston. I ask clearance for her to go out now, while we have dark nights. She is detained at heavy expense to the State. I solicit an early reply. Joseph E. Brown. His Excellency Jefferson Davis, Richmond. Richmond, May 10, 1864. His Excellency Governor Brown: Your telegram of the ninth to the President in relation to steamer Ada, has been referred to this department. On the twelfth of April a telegram was sent you, stating that the act of Congress, imposing restrictions on export of cotton, required that the regulations of trade should be uniform. Therefore the requirement that one half of the cargo of every outward-bound vessel should be for account of the confederate States, cannot be relinquished as an exception in your favor. April twenty-seventh, Mr. Lamar applied for a clearance for the steamer, and was

rsons, so that five of them may still be living in Grey Eagle's camp. Two of the girls, Lucy and Ada, are young ladies, Lucy being nineteen, Ada sixteen years of age. Adelaide is a child of nine, anAda sixteen years of age. Adelaide is a child of nine, and Julia barely seven. These children must be sought and found. Grey Eagle makes for the Red Fork of Arkansas River, by which he means to cross into the Public Lands, lying westward of the Indian an encumbrance, one of the hunters knocks it on the head, and flings it to the wolves. Lucy and Ada are bestowed on the big chiefs; but the pursuers are so hot that Grey Eagle has no time to dally by Captain Niel, are placed on their trail, with orders to recover the two young ladies, Lucy and Ada, from their savage captors. Leavenworth, Kansas, and America, they are told, expect these ladiese dealing with such savages as Grey Eagle? Adelaide and Julia Germain are safe within the lines of Fort Leavenworth; but their elder sisters, Lucy and Ada, are still in their savage captor's hands.

ydon Bridge, Northutmberlarnd: If you received any pleasure here, either in shooting at grouse or in killing a hare, I do assure you the pleasure I enjoyed in your company, when you were kind enough to favor a poor mountain curate with a visit, was as great. I not only yield to you as a matter of courtesy, being my guest, the important question as to who killed the hare, but I have another reason for doing so. For the first time, I believe, in the Annals of the Parish since it was granted by Ada, Countess of Northumberland, in the reign of Henry II., to her almoner, Matthew de Whitfield, there now stands recorded in the Game-Book, One hare: Mr. Sumner, a Republican born. The archdeacon volunteered a letter of introduction to Count Albrizzi, of Venice, in which he commended Sumner as a man of great talent, and in search of literature and all that is worth seeing; and another to Tomaso Morenigo Soranzo, of an ancient Venetian family; but neither letter was used.

"A bout forty dollars." "Forty dollars ! Why, Ada, do you think I am made of money? Mr. Whitman's counrly manhood, and the bonds that hold me are weak. If Ada could see as I see — if I could only make her understll of bills from his vest pocket, and handing them to Ada, as he came in. He did not kiss her, nor smile in the kind of you to regard my wishes." Something in Ada's voice and manner caused Mr. Whitman to lift his eyesant sight. His thoughts were bitter. "Shall my Ada become lost to me,"--he said in his heart-- "lost to eipted, you see." Her voice fluttered a little. "Ada ! how is this? What does it mean?"--He flushed and g said it was uninjured, and asked nothing." "Oh, Ada !" "And this is receipted also — and this," hand's imagination. If any fair lady, however, who, like Ada, has been drawing too heavily upon her husband's slenewels, is at a loss to realize the scene, let her try Ada's experiment.

tates steamer Cambridge, engaged in blockading the Rappahannock river, on the 6th instant, says: Having learned from the negroes who came on board this morning that a large schooner was anchored about ten miles up the Corrotowan river, we immediately made arrangements to cut her out. We met with no opposition on our upward passage, though pickets were seen hastily retiring from several points on the river as we approached. Upon reaching the object of our search, we found her to be the "Ada," of Baltimore, a new schooner of about 120 tons burden, and said to be the property of a well-known Secessionist residing in the vicinity. She was loaded with wood and ready for sea — sails bent, &c. Her crew had evidently just left her upon our approach. We set her on fire and she was soon in flames. But in the meantime our rebel friends had not been idle, and had prepared a warm reception for us. On reaching a high, wooden bluff on the western bank, about three miles from the entran
