Congress in session at Montgomery, Ala., adjourned to meet at Richmond, Va., July 20th.--N. Y. Herald, May 28. A letter from Roxabelle, N. C., says:--The Chowan Association, by a unanimous vote, cut off all intercourse with the Bible Union, and recommended those owing subscriptions to withhold the same, deprecating any further agency of the Bible Union among the churches another fruit of the reckless fanaticism of the Northern agitators. Unwilling to bow down to the Jehovah revealed by Moses and preached by Paul, they seek anti-slavery God. Nor are they umnindful in their ardent devoirs to the almighty dollar. Thousands have gone into the Bible Union treasury, annually for years past; but the steam is now stopped.--N. Y. Express, May 24. The New School Presbyterian Assembly in session at Syracuse, N. Y., passed a series of resolutions upholding the Federal Government, the Constitution and laws.--Albany Journal, May 24. Gen. Sam. Houston addressed the people of Indepe
k Volunteers, the officers and men with him, together with the guide, Williamson, for the gallantry and good conduct displayed by them in destroying a party of Texan Rangers, located at Mrs. Lee's house, on the banks of the Occoquan, and in sight of the rebel batteries. It is to be regretted that after all resistance had ceased, a more thorough search was not made of the house to discover the actual loss of the enemy, and to bring away all their arms. By order, Brig.-Gen. Heintzelman. Isaac Moses, A. A. G Mason and Slidell arrived at Southampton, Eng., this morning. They embarked on board the British ship Rinaldo, at Boston, bound for Halifax. Owing to a furious gale, the Rinaldo could not make Halifax, and after trying ineffectually for four days to do so, she ran for Bermuda. Here the English admiral offered to send the commissioners home in Her Majesty's ship Racer, or convey them to St. Thomas to catch the West-India packet. The latter course was preferred. They a
our diplomacy, our finances, our military operations, our naval preparations, and the efficiency of our bureaus of conscription, commissary stores and quartermaster stores. But this can never be done by those who look upon President Davis as our Moses. Congress must assume its duties under the constitution, as an independent element of power. It must abandon the idea that it is only a secret body for registering the will of the President. It must be the people, standing forth in the light ond most disastrous policy, by which the confederate States have been deluged with blood, and covered over with suffering and misery. His inefficiency and Yankee efficiency will both be overcome. But if President Davis is to be treated as our Moses we really do not see the use of Congress. If the people, through their representatives in Congress, are to exercise no power but at the bidding of the executive, Congress is a nonentity. It is worse; it is a tool of the executive, by which the
Programme of the Administration. --The New York Courier and Enquirer states that at a recent interview had by Mr. Isaac Moses, of New York, with Mr. Seward, the former told the latter "of the determined feeling in New York to sustain the Government, and that action of an energetic character was expected;" Mr. Seward replied "that the people should not be disappointed, and that he thought they would be well satisfied with what would take place in a very few days." It is added in the Courier and Enquirer that "Mr. Moses spent Sunday evening with Mr. Blair, Postmaster General," and says, "he gave me the programme of the Government, which I think will be effective. Troops will, in all probability, be sent to New Orleans. Mr. Blair thinks the war will be short, but it will be spirited and energetic." The above, when taken in connection with Mr. Seward's letter to Mr. Dayton, which we considered a notification to all Europe of the intention of the Federal Government, will show that
