ns enrolled themselves as a Home Guard, and several hundred troops are expected from surrounding counties, in obedience to a special call by the Governor. At a session of the Legislature, called after midnight, the bill passed both Houses extending the power over the Police Commissioners, giving the Governor ample means for suppressing riot and insurrectionary movements throughout the State. The following additional names of the killed in the first collision have been ascertained; Caper H. Glennercoel, John H. Sweethart, John Waters, P. Doan, J. J. Jones, of Portage, Ohio, L. Carl, Christian Dean, Mrs. Macaulig, Mrs. Chapman, F. D. Allen, and two boys, named Icenhower and Lossing. Dr. B. Sanderson was stabbed last night in a drinking saloon by Judge Buckner.

Compliments of the season. --The British ship Sir Allen McNab, Capt. Chapman, forty days from Liverpool, consigned to Messrs. Gibbs & Co., arrived yesterday forenoon, In tow of the steamer Gordon. Upon nearing Fort Sumter the Captain brought out his light artillery and saluted the Confederate flag now waving over the fort. Immediately the commanding officer returned the compliment with a royal salute. Of course there was nothing political in the salute on either side. Our friend, the Captain, was glad to get into port, and the gallant commander at Sumter only look this way of letting the new comer know that freight on cotton was penny-half-penny for Uplands, and two pence half-penny for Sea Island.--Charleston Mercury, 16th.
ess loss of life. The successor of Harney, a thousand times more unprincipled than his predecessor, refused to listen to anything short of martial law and a military despotism, and the cold blooded murders of Monday are its first fruits. This sad relation speaks for itself. It is the most serious, thus far, of an endless list of crimes which will develop out of the fratricidal war that has begun, under the auspices of an unscrupulous Abolition Administration, unless some measures can be devised to bring it to a close. Thinking men are beginning to pause and count the cost of the internal conflict into which demagogism and fanaticism have plunged the country; but they should also begin to act. The blood of Mrs. McAnliff, Mrs. Chapman, and those who were slaughtered on Monday, " cries from the ground for vengeance," and unless popular wrath makes itself speedily heard, tens of thousands of lives will yet be immolated to the demons of sectionalism, hatred and political ambition.
d be summarily abated. During the uproar, Rev. J. Stella Martin announced that a meeting would be held in his church in the evening. In response to this announcement, the Baptist Church (colored,) in Jay street, was filled at an early hour. The edifice was small, and a large proportion of the audience were black. Here Wendell Phillips, John Brown, Jr., Fred Douglass, and other leading John Brown sympathizers, ventilated their opinions freely with little interruption. A woman, named Chapman, appeared to preside. Several policemen were stationed in the church. Outside there was an immense crowd, and a strong force of police. The disturbance was confined to noisy demonstrations, though the crowd seemed very anxious to get hold of Redpath. The meeting broke up at ten o'clock, and the audience dispersed quietly. Some of the leading spirits were hooted at in passing through the outside crowd, but no violence was committed. Frank B. Sanborn was acting President of the m
