s learn that all parties in this country unite in condemnation of their present conduct, and let them also learn that the worst of all aristocracies is that which prevails in America, an aristocracy which has been aptly denominated that of the human skin. The most insufferable pride is that shown by such an aristocracy. I will continue to hurl these taunts across the Atlantic. They will ascend the Mississippi, they will descend the Missouri, and be heard along the banks of the Ohio and Monongahela till the black man leaps delightedly to express his gratitude to those who have effected his emancipation. And oh! but perhaps it is my pride that dictates this hope, that some black O'Connell may rise among his fellow-slaves, who will cry agitate! agitate! agitate! till the two millions and a half of his fellow-sufferers learn their strength, learn that they are two millions and a half! If there is one thing more than another which can excite my hatred, it is the laws which the Amer
-Colonel Rhodes, and two companies of cavalry, under command of Major J. J. Mudd, had a skirmish with the rebels near Bertrand, Missouri, to-day, losing one man. They took sixteen prisoners and a number of horses and fire-arms.--Missouri Democrat, December 12. In the Legislature of Western Virginia, in session at Wheeling, to-day, Mr. Carksadon, of Hampshire, introduced a resolution to prohibit any person engaged in the rebellion from over holding office in the State. Mr. Snider, of Monongahela, introduced a resolution modifying those parts of the code which prohibit writing or speaking against slavery, so as to make them conform to the spirit and genius of the National institutions. The Eleventh Michigan infantry, twelve hundred strong, commanded by Col. Wm. J. May, arrived at Jeffersonville, and were at once despatched to Bardstown, Ky. They are a fine body of men, and will doubtless do good service in the Union cause. Michigan has done nobly thus far, and the Eleventh i

The Hartford had now run a mile inside the bay, and was suffering chiefly from the raking fire of the Selma, which was unquestionably managed more skillfully than any other Confederate vessel. Captain (now Admiral) Jouett, commanding the Hartford's escort, the Metacomet, repeatedly asked permission United States Steamship Monongahela, showing injuries received in the fight.

In an instant the cables binding the two vessels were cut, and the Metacomet, the fastest vessel in the fleet, bounded ahead. The Selma was no match for her, and, recognizing her danger, endeavored to retreat up the bay. But she was speedily overhauled, and when a shot had wounded her

ed, and General Banks concentrated his forces (about twelve thousand strong) at Baton Rouge, for operations in conjunction with Admiral Farragut, then on the Lower Mississippi. The latter, on hearing of the loss of the Queen of the West and the De Soto, See page 589. determined to run by the batteries at Port Hudson with his fleet, and recover the control of the river from that point to Vicksburg. His fleet consisted of the frigates Hartford (flag-ship), Missisippi, Richardson, and Monongahela; the gun-boats Essex, Albatross, Kineo, Genesee, and Sachem, and six mortar-boats. For this purpose he gathered his fleet at Prophet's Island, a few miles below Port Hudson, on the 13th of March, 1863. and on the same day Banks sent forward about twelve thousand men to divert the attention of the foe while the fleet should perform the proposed perilous act. These drove in the pickets before them, while the gun-boats Essex and Sabine, and the mortars, bombarded the Confederate works. F

H. B. Caldwell, below, held the river, and were shelling the Confederate works at intervals, day and night. Banks was informed that the Confederates were withdrawing from tGrover, and Payne, on Banks's right, made a vigorous attack, but it was long past noon before Auger in the center, and Sherman on the left, were fairly at work. The navy was fully up to time, and from the Hartford and Albatross above, and the Monongahela, Richmond, Essex, and Genesee below, and the mortar-boats, Farragut poured a continuous stream of shells upon the garrison (which was still in full force) with marked effect. Already his shells had driven them from their first battery on the

o. Thus terminated Dr. Tyler's visit, and to Virginia did he return with his despised and ill-treated bolus. We are sorry to notice that he was not admitted into the inner vestibule of the Cabinet. To be sure we do not exactly understand what an inner vestibule may be; but we are satisfied that it is such a sanctum sanctorum, such a place of places, and such a closet of closets that if Mr. Tyler had therein met Mr. Buchanan, and had suddenly presented the status quo in a mild medium of Monongahela to the President what with the surprise and the spirits, the status quo would have glided down the Executive oesophagus into the Executive stomach) and so in a state of chyme through the Presidential pylorus into the next proper place in the Presidential person — and all with the happiest possible effects. But it is useless to speculate. What is the value of a doctor, when the patient pitches his medicines out of the window? What could Dr. Tyler do when Mr. Buchanan steadily refused to

Carlile, on the 13th, reported, from the Committee on Business, a Declaration, denouncing the usurpation by which the Convention at Richmond had pretended to sever Virginia from the Union, repudiating the idea of allegiance to the Southern Confederacy, and vacating the offices of all who adhered to the Rebellion. In the debate which followed, Mr. Carlile opposed an immediate division of the State; but Mr. Dorsey, of Monongahela, who urged it, being supported by Pierpont and others, obtained, on the 20th, a unanimous vote in favor of ultimate separation — Yeas 56. The Convention had voted, two days earlier, by 57 to 17, that the separation of Western from Eastern Virginia was one of its paramount objects. In the afternoon of that day, Francis H. Pierpont, of Marion county, was chosen Governor, Daniel Paisley, of Mason county, Lieutenant-Governor, with five members to form an Executive Council. These elections
