Our Correspondence. arrival of Southerners — Lincoln on his Travels — affairs down the, River — the Medical beard — benefit exhibition — match manufactory — the weather, Etc. Norfolk Sept. 18, 1861. The Federal steamer Fanny Cadwallader came up as far as Craney Island yesterday afternoon, with a flag of truce from Old Point having on board two gentlemen and their wives, from New York, and whose residence is in North Carolina. They state that their trunks were thoroughly searched by the detectives at New York, and sealed. The search also took place on their arrival at Philadelphia, and finally at Old Point by Picayune Butler's Massachusetts female. I learn here that it was currently reported in New York, that Old Abe and Seward had reached that city to avoid the noise made by Gen. Beauregard. I am informed by passengers just up to the city from Craney Island, that there are two large vessels lying off Newport News. There are six at Old Point, f
as a prisoner at the camp of the, cavalry, about a mile south of this place, having refused to give any pledge of loyalty or to gain his liberty on parole of honor. The Court demanded security of Mr. S. for his appearance to answer any indictment which a grand jury may find against him for treasonable conduct; and the security being given, he was discharged. Mr. Strother is the father of the notorious "Dave Strother," who has thrown off all disguise and is now in full fellowship with Lincoln's vandals. Edmund Pendicton, of Berkeley, who was arrested at Bath at the same time, and brought to this place as a prisoner, soon gave a pledge to abstain from any disloyal or treasonable conduct, and was released. Selbert Bowers, of Gerardstown, Berkeley county, who was also arrested, has been, we sent to Richmond, to be disposed of by the authorities there. Amongst the charges against him, is the grave one of having been a member of Carlile's treasonable Convention at Wheelin
A remarkable Career of villainy checked. --The arrest of Captain J. M. Wing, on yesterday, says the N. O. Bee, of the 12th, has brought to light and checked one of the most extraordinary careers of villainy we have ever heard of, showing him to be at the same time a traitor, a swindler, and a seducer. Before the commencement of the present war, Wing was well known here as a steamboat man, and when the Abolition Koontz, who is now Commodore of Lincoln's river flotilla, was ordered to leave our port with the City of Memphis, while he took the cars to make quicker time, Wing took charge of his boat for him and carried her up the river, to become afterwards a Federal gun-boat. Wing came back and professed to be an ardent Southerner, but is believed to have been a Northern spy. He seduced the wife of one of our city merchants, a young lady only twenty-one years of age, and who is the mother of an infant child. This lady, is considered on all hands one of the most beautiful of all
ons of fealty to the Union and of neutrality between the sections, were contradictions in terms. To affect neutrality before she seceded, was grossly to stultify herself without succeeding in making a dupe of either the North or the South. Lincoln never did recognize her neutrality, and never could do so consistently with constitutional duty. The South agreed to treat her as a neutral as a measure of policy and prudence, well knowing that without first seceding from the old Union, it washich those cunning men beguiled over from the ranks of the Secessionists proper, the great body of the good people of Kentucky. This is the delusive bait by which they have succeeded in hooking a great and gallant Commonwealth into the toils of Lincoln. This is the net which they have thrown over the limbs of the Secession party there, and prevented them from following John C. Breckinridge, Magoffin, Powell, Burnett, Stephenson, Brown, and the other true men who would have led them into the So
. We would freely transfer them to our columns, but do not desire to blow the trumpet for our good old mother, whose works speak for her without a word from any of her sons. She has seventy thousand troops now in the field, and every house within her borders is the soldier's home. At some future time, we may set forth what the State of Virginia has done in the way of preparation for this war; and we think that when the facts and figures come to be known, it will be admitted that no State of ancient or modern days, having the same disadvantages to contend against, ever achieved as much in the same space of time as Virginia, from the moment when Lincoln's purpose of overthrowing the Constitution became manifest.--She was slow of vision to detect that purpose; but, once discerned, her attitude has been most disinterested, energetic, and even sublime. We rejoice to see that throughout the entire South this is the universal sentiment towards the glorious Old Dominion. their absence.
ment will not be likely to venture hereafter even upon a letter of condolence with the old Union, if it puts such an interpretation upon an act of common courtesy. It will be dangerous hereafter for any foreign ambassador to take off his hat to Lincoln, or to sign a dispatch to Seward, "Your obedient servant," lest the one act should be understood as intending a disposition to pitch into the South, and the other to place the whole army and navy of the ambassador's country at the service of theocratic institutions in the old world as well as the new. Besides, whatever her sympathies with the old Union, she can scarcely afford the enormous expenses of a war with France and England, to gratify a romantic sentiment for a United States that was. Russia was bled to death, financially, by her last struggle with the Western Powers, and can have neither the ability nor inclination to thrust herself into any quarrel which they may happen to have hereafter with the Government of Mr. Lincoln.
A splendid prize. --An agent in this city of A. Belmont, of New York, has been purchasing, for some time past, a large quantity of tobacco for his principal, which is said now to be in store in this city, to the handsome amount of three thousand hogsheads, worth, in round numbers, $350,000. The agents of Lincoln have been very active for some time past in seizing the funds and property of Southern men in the Northern cities. We are rejoiced that the Confederate Government have, in this magnificent lot of tobacco, a fund sufficient to cover a very large portion of the recent Yankee confiscations at the North. Auguste Belmont is a well known banker in Wall street — the same whom Secretary Chase recently sent over to London to attempt a negotiation of the Federal war loan, and who met with a signal failure. A. Belmont is also the intimate friend and financial agent of Gen. Fremont, and is doubtless a sympathizer in that officer's brutal measures in Missouri. We have no doubt
A battle Imminent --The latest arrivals from Columbus, Mo., says the Memphis Appeal, of the 17th, declare that a battle must be fought there very soon; perhaps to-day. On Saturday at four o'clock in the evening, two Lincoln gun-boats, the Conestoga and Lexington came down, and taking a position above Columbus, so as to have the bluff between them and the Confederate's battery--they threw four shells, one of them when over the town bursted in the air; had it fallen before bursting the effects probably would have been terrible; another fell in the river; another bursted over Thompson's camp, and the fourth fell below the camp. We learn from a Columbus correspondent that on Sunday the steam boat Grampus, commanded by the Capt. Marsh Miller, was fired into by the enemy's pickets; several balls passed through the pilot house, and two struck very near Captain Miller, but he and the rest escaped injury.
Lincoln's Instructions to Fremont. --President Lincoln transmitted a letter to General Fremont on the 12th inst., on the subject of his recent proclamation. He says: "Assuming that you, being on the ground, could better judge of the necessities of your position than I could at this distance, on seeing your proclamationPresident Lincoln transmitted a letter to General Fremont on the 12th inst., on the subject of his recent proclamation. He says: "Assuming that you, being on the ground, could better judge of the necessities of your position than I could at this distance, on seeing your proclamation of the 30th of August I perceive several objections to it, the particular objection being the clauses relative to the confiscation of property and the liberation of slaves. It is objectionable on account of its non-conformity to the act of Congress. On the 8th of August last I wrote you expressing a wish that that clause should cation, which I cheerfully do. It is therefore ordered, that the said clause be modified, held and construed to conform to and not transcend the provisions in the act of Congress, entitled an act to confiscate property used for insurrectionary purposes, and that said act be published at length, with this order. A. Lincoln
The enemy on our coast. --The Franklin (St. Mary) Register, of the 12th instant, says: From almost every quarter we hear of the doings of the enemy on our seaboard. From the mouths of the Mississippi to the Sabine on the West, a perfect cordon of Lincoln cruisers may be seen or heard of, and from which a detachment of men now and then make a descent on shore and supply themselves with fresh provisions, vegetables, &c. What is every body's business is most generally nobody's business, and ere long we would not be surprised to hear of another Hatteras affair somewhere on our Southern coast.
