r Tallahassee," replied Captain Wood. Upon hearing this the fellow was frightened out of his wits. His face turned deathly pale, his knees shook violently, and drops of perspiration started from every pore. I never saw a more perfect picture of object misery than he presented when told his boat would be burned. This was the James Funck; or, Pilot boat "No. 22." Being a beautiful and fast-sailing schooner, Captain Wood put a price crew upon her, under Mr. Curtis, acting master, and pilot Davis, keeping her as a tender. We obtained some Fulton market beef, mutton on ice, fresh vegetables, and a quantity of stores, from this boat. At 11 o'clock, came up with brig Carrie Estelle, of Boston, with lumber for New York. The prisoners were taken off, charts, chronometers and nautical instruments removed, and the vessel burned. Meanwhile, the Tender "22" was sent after two sail, some five miles away; and in about two hours sent down to us the barque Bay State, from Alexandr
hat "it don't pay." They hold that it is the most worthless of all kinds of labor, that it impoverishes the soil and the people, and is a perpetuapucubus upon individual enterprise and energy. General McClellan graciously proposes to leave us this boon. He will not interfere with a system which, according to the ideas of those he represents, must keep us forever in weakness and poverty. Surely, we ought to be profoundly grateful for such friendship. We can tell General McClellan, as President Davis told Jacques &Co., about his own negroes — We have done them a great deal more good than they have ever done us. They were forced upon us originally contrary to our remonstrances; they have multiplied with astonishing rapidity; yet we have done the best for them that we could. Their very multiplication in such numbers proves that they have been well treated; so does their sleek and well-fed aspect. Nor have we neglected their spiritual welfare. More of them have been converted to Chr
They may have solemnly declared by State conventions, or otherwise, that they will not re-enter into a common government with us; the people may be unfixed and unanimous as their leaders; they may have resolved to have independence or death, as Mr. Davis has recently declared; still, General McClellan is pledged to overthrew their resolves by fire and sword. He is pledged to fight and slay them till they surrender the principle of choosing their own form of government. He is pledged to an intUlysses N. Arnett, delegate from that district to the Chicago Convention, reached home last Saturday, and "was immediately surrounded by all the dilapidated chivalry of Fairmont to learn his ideas respecting the prospect of their second choice Jeff. Davis is their first choice) for the Presidency. We learn that he gave them the comfortable assurance that McClellan would be elected, and that the war against his two sons, their sons, and all their friends fighting for their 'rights,' would be in
r in Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia. He was very aristocratic in his bearing and manners, a gentleman of the old school, a staunch Democrat in his politics, and a warm friend to the South. No professor in the medical schools of Philadelphia was more popular with the Southern students than Dr. McClellan save, perhaps, old Dr. Chapman. General McClellan is well bred. He graduated at West Point, and has always been a great favorite with Southern officers in the old army. While President Davis was Secretary of War under the Pierce Administration he selected General McClellan to visit the Crimea during the war between England, France and Russia in an official character. His report to the War Department, on the military position of the European combatants, and on the new engines of war brought into use by them, was held to be an able document, and was ordered to be published. His family is one of the most distinguished in Pennsylvania. He ranks with such families as the
