Letter of thanks. --The Washington Star says that the British Queen's thanks to the American people for their kindness to her son have been communicated by Lord Lyons to Secretary Cass. The letter overflows with gratitude and courtesy.
e his desire to obtain the collectorship of the port of Baltimore from Lincoln; and the strong Unionism of certain Southern men is explained on the ground that they own lots near the Capitol. But whose motives are not impugned now-a-days? Gen. Cass' resignation, and the President's recommendation of a day of National humiliation, fasting and prayer, are well calculated to deepen the existing gloom. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Buchanan, even by his enemies. Dickenson is spoken of as Cass' successor, but no one knows anything as yet. Judge Hardy, of the Supreme Court of Mississippi, and Commissioner from that State to Maryland, left this city for Annapolis this morning. Judge H. is a native of Maryland. I have letters from the border counties of Virginia, which state that the secession feeling is rapidly gaining ground. In Nelson's district, in Tennessee, thousands have gone over to the secessionists. The revolution is making tremendous strides. It is folly
on, Harolde, and myself, of course. But there was another, not of course. Dunscomb came in, threw himself flat of his back on the lounge, smoked, and listened. "We must solve this mystery, this Brown, this invincible Brown, this Ciœsus, this Adonis, this Heanan, this Jehu," said I.--"Echalez, what do you know about Brown?" Jack turned off a goblet — he always drinks sherry in a goblet — of wine, and answered. "Nothing. Saw him two winters ago in Washington, at a ball at old Cass's. Haven't seen anybody but Brown since." Echalez is our sententious man. "Barnstoff, give us your report." "I knows noting also. I meets mit him at Newport, pefore last soomer, unt he vas telion of te blace. He trove to finest horses, give to finest zooper, he hired to Chermania Pand to whole season unt give all to zerenates. I vish in my soul he vas dead. I shall pe sick mit Proun, dis three year." Barnstoff is in the steel business in Dry street, and in love. "
We also hoped and believed that nothing would be done after that until we had a formal adjustment with the Federal Government, or until those forts were demanded by the State. That was the substance of our communication. And I say again, that there is not an intention to reinforce the forts. What do we now see at Washington? We see the Premier — the right hand man of the Administration, a near and dear personal friend of the President — retiring from the Cabinet on that precise issue. Gen. Cass urged vehemently that the forts should be reinforced. The President has resisted, and allowed a Cabinet officer to withdraw, rather than to yield to the proposition. Now, is it natural after such an act that the President should vacillate and concede to other influences that which he so strongly and promptly refused to a personal friend in the Cabinet? I cannot believe it. I cannot think he would be so weak, so vacillating, so uncertain. I, therefore, feel, as I said, that there is
n have laid before the Convention an interesting statement of their interviews with the President. We make the following extract: On Saturday, the 8th of December, several of the South Carolina delegation, including ourselves, waited upon the President. At this time, there was a growing belief that reinforcements were on the eve of being sent to the forts in Charleston harbor. It was known that the subject was frequently and earnestly discussed in the Cabinet. It was rumored that General Cass and Mr. Holt were urgent that reinforcements should be sent. Upon our being announced, the President, who was then in Cabinet Council, came out to us in the ante-room. We at once entered into a conversation upon the topic, which was so closely occupying his thoughts as well as ours.--The President seemed much disturbed and moved. He told us that he had had a painful interview with the wife of Major Anderson, who had come on from New York to see him. She had manifested great anxiety and
I felt a sensation of delight in my heart. I then thought the question capable of peaceable solution, and though you may not think it worthy of mention, I devoutly returned thanks to Almighty God. The speaker next alluded to the course of Gen. Cass, then Secretary of State, whom he pronounced one of the noblest specimens of mankind, whose personal virtues he had never ceased to revere, after four years association. Gen. Cass said: "These forts must be strengthened — I demand it." This, gGen. Cass said: "These forts must be strengthened — I demand it." This, gentlemen, is the Northern sentiment, and in his position the Secretary reflected the minds of his people.--And when the President replied, with stern inflexibility--"I have considered this question — I am sorry to differ with the Secretary of State--out the interests of the country do not demand a reinforcement of the forts at Charleston — I cannot do it — I take the responsibility"--then, gentlemen, my hopes for the future grew stronger. That is what he said.--The next day this glorious ol
General Cass. Detroit, Mich., April 17. --General Cass made a speech here this morning, on the occasion of the Board of Trade unfurling the National flag over their rooms. He was strongly in favor of supporting the Union, the Constitution and the country's flag, under all circumstances like the present. It was the duty of every citizen to stand by the Government.

day afternoon for Virginia. General McClellan and staff were at Parkersburg yesterday, en route for Grafton. The First and Second Regiments of Kentucky Volunteers marched into this city to-day, and were presented with colors by the ladies of Cincinnati and Newport. They made a fine appearance and were enthusiastically received. Captain Howe's battery left for Virginia this afternoon. Troops for Fortress Monroe. Boston, June 23. --The Massachusetts 9th Regiment, Col. Cass, will leave on Sunday for Fortress Monroe, by steamer direct. The 7th Regiment, Col. Couch, and the 11th, Col. Clark, will positively leave during the week for the same destination. False alarm — War preparations. Washington, June 22. --At 4 o'clock this morning one of the camps, about a half-mile from Georgetown, was thrown into alarm, and the men called to quarters, but the commotion soon subsided. It may have been occasioned by firing at the pickets, as, according to the
Ravages of the Army worm. --The ravages of the army worm in Illinois are truly frightful. The Prairie Farmer says their sad work is being prosecuted to a greater or less extent over the following territories: With slight comparative damage in McDonough county, commencing with Adams county on the west, they are traced eastward through Cass, Sangamon, Platt, Champaign and lower part of Vermillion counties. South from Adams, down the Mississippi, they take Pike, Calhoun, Madison, St. Clair and Jackson. Eastward of this line, and south from the other, their number seems to be innumerable in Coles, Clark, Effingham, Cumberland and Christian counties.
The war Movements. A dispatch from Fortress Monroe, June 29, to the Northern newspapers, furnishes the subjoined information! Col. Cass' regiment arrived here this morning from Boston, but proceeded on to Washington without landing. The original destination of this regiment was Fortress Monroe. The Massachusetts 3d and 4th regiments are under orders to march tomorrow morning.--They will probably entrench themselves beyond Hampton bridge, and form the advance of an important movement towards York town. Their time will expire in about three weeks. The Naval Brigade will probably accompany them to Hampton. J. W. Bennett, of the 1st Regiment of Vermont, died yesterday, at the hospital, of typhus fever. Over one hundred sick are now in the hospital. A large number of fugitive slaves have come in to-day. The Confederates this morning fired two or three shots from a new battery on James river, directly opposite Newport News. [The foregoing paragraph conce
