vening on God's time of Threshing. The choir performed The Marseillaise to a hymn composed for the occasion by the pastor. A collection was taken for the Volunteers' Home Fund amounting to $450--to which a member of the congregation after-wards added $100. Dr. Bethune's sermon was from the text: In the name of our God we will set up our banners. In Dr. Bellows' church the choir sang The Star-Spangled Banner, which was vigorously applauded by the whole house. At Grace church (Episcopal) Dr. Taylor began by saying, The Star-Spangled Banner has been insulted. The gallant Major Anderson and his wife attended service at Trinity. At Dr. McLane's Presbyterian church, Williamsburg, The Star-Spangled Banner was sung. Dr. T. D. Wells (Old-School Presbyterian) preached from the words: He that hath no sword, let him buy one.

Hunsicker; Quartermaster, Yerkes; Surgeon, Dunlop; Assistant-Surgeons, Christ and Rogers; Captains, Bolton, Schall, Chamberlain, Dunn, Snyder, Allabaugh, Amey, Brooke, Cooke, and Taylor.

s from Mr. Adolphe Ducros's plantation, at the mouth of Bayou Bienvenu, which empties into Lake Borgne, with information to Maj.-Gen. Twiggs, that two fishermen had reported the arrival of two small war steamers in Lake Borgne, one carrying three guns, and the other a long pivot gun forward. The fishermen stated that the steamers lay off in the lake, and that night before last they sent two boats towards the mouth of. the bayou, as was supposed, for taking soundings. Gen. Twiggs ordered Major Taylor, in command of the barracks, to proceed immediately to Martello Tower, at the mouth of Bayou Bienvenu, with a company of infantry, to garrison the tower, which contains several heavy mounted guns, for the protection of this avenue to the city. This point is but ten miles from New Orleans in a direct line, and a little over fifteen by the Mexican Gulf Railroad. It is celebrated for being the point at which the British landed their troops in the war of 1813-14.--New Orleans Picayune, June
es.--General McClellan made a balloon reconnaissance, in the afternoon, from Munson's Hill, in Virginia. Three Lieutenants attached to the United States ship Constellation, which recently arrived at the Portsmouth navy-yard, were sent to Fort Lafayette, they having refused to take the oath of allegiance.

The proclamation also prohibits the carrying any more slaves South, as such a course is calculated to lessen the confidence of the people in the ability of the rebels to maintain themselves in Missouri.--(Doc. 62 1/2.) This afternoon, a mile and
votion to the Constitution of the United States. The Convention met at Hatteras. The act passed contained several sections, the substance of which is as follows: The first declares vacant all the offices of the State; the second names Marble Nash Taylor Provisional Governor; the third adopts the Constitution of the State, with the statutes and laws contained in the revised code of 1856; the fourth repudiates the ordinance of secession passed at Raleigh on the 20th of May, together with all ots the Provisional Governor to order a special election for Members of Congress; the sixth gives to the Governor authority to make temporary appointments to official vacancies. The Convention adjourned, subject to the call of the President. Governor Taylor issued his proclamation for an election in the Second Congressional District, which will be held on Wednesday, the 27th inst.--(Doc. 173.) A portion of the Fourteenth regiment N. Y.

It complains that, in the Northern States, the element of labor preponderates, which has caused the division of society into two distinct classes, thereby destroying the social system. It denounces the system of free schools, by which the children of the poor are educated at the expense of the rich, and rejects universal suffrage as calculated to demoralize the masses and foster corruption at the polls.--(Doc. 180.) Marble Nash Taylor, chosen Provisional Governor of North Carolina by the Union men at Hatteras, issued a proclamation calling upon the people of that State to return to their allegiance to the United States.--(Doc. 181.) The Richmond Dispatch, of this date, has the following: We are informed by one of our principal publishers, that the demand for Yankee books is not affected by the war, and that, a few days ago, he had an order for a considerable number of a Yankee arithmetic, although his shelves are
yland's quota of volunteers for the war. He also recommends legislation for the summary punishment of persons in Maryland, who shall be convicted of aiding or abetting in any manner those who are in arms against the Government. A spirited skirmish took place to-night near Anandale on the Little River Turnpike, Va. It having been ascertained that a number of rebel cavalry were in the habit of coming out toward the pickets in that locality, and driving in or capturing them, last night Colonel Taylor, with twenty-five or thirty men from the Third New Jersey regiment, went out toward Anandale, where the rebels were said to appear occasionally, coming down the road at full gallop. They tied a piece of telegraph wire across the road, just high enough to trip the horses and throw them with their riders, and then placed themselves in ambush beside the road. About half-past 11 forty or fifty of the rebel cavalry approached, galloping down the road. The head horseman tripped and fell,

The Ninth German regiment, Wisconsin Volunteers, commanded by Colonel Solomon, who so greatly distinguished himself under General Sigel at Springfield, Mo., left Milwaukee to-day for Fort Leavenworth, well armed and equipped. A proclamation was issued to-day at Hatteras, N. C., by Marble Nash Taylor, loyal Provisional Governor of North-Carolina, congratulating the people of his State upon their deliverance from rebel thraldom by the invincible arms of the Republic. He calls upon all well-disposed persons to cooperate with this friendly army in restoring to their commonwealth the ancient and inalienable rights so recently lost. For this purpose, he announces the establishment of a Provisional Government for North-Carolina, and appoints the 22d of February, an anniversary so sacred,

Washington, N. C., was occupied by the National forces under Gen. Burnside. The Unionists landed from their gunboats, and, headed by a band of music, marched through the town, playing Hail Columbia, and waving the Stars and Stripes at a lively rate. The few people who had remained in the place since the fall of Newbern, received them with marked coolness. Their music and their banners wholly failed to arouse any of that Union feeling which Marble Nash Taylor collected several thousand dollars in New York to set free, so they left without disturbing either persons or property.--Petersburgh Express ( Va.), March 2
that humanity and British interests demanded that a stop should be put to the war. It appeared strange and unaccountable to him that her Majesty's government had taken no steps in that direction. It was clear that the South could not be conquered, and it was still more clear it could never be brought back again into the Union. He therefore submitted that the time had arrived when the Southern States ought to be received into the family of nations, and begged to make the above motion. Mr. Taylor, who had given notice of an amendment to Mr. Lindsay's motion, to leave out all the words after the words House, in order to insert the words, it is desirable that this country should continue to maintain the strictest neutrality in the civil war unhappily existing in the republic of the United States, said he thought Mr. Lindsay had not acted prudently in disregarding the suggestion of an honorable member, to forbear to move his resolution. It meant the recognition of the Southern States
