l the majesty of the Government was made manifest, immediately after you had assumed the chief magistracy, the conspirators against its Constitution and laws have left nothing undone to perpetuate the memory of their infamy. Revenue steamers have been deliberately betrayed by their commanders, or, where treason could not be brought to consummate the defection, have been overpowered by rebel troops at the command of disloyal governors. The Government arsenals at Little Rock, Baton Rouge, Mount Vernon, Appalachicola, Augusta, Charleston, and Fayetteville, the ordnance depot at San Antonio, and all the other Government works in Texas, which served as the depots of immense stores of arms and ammunition, have been surrendered by the commanders or seized by disloyal hands.

years Have bent with hovering care, Who steadfast by thy cradle watched, And poured the ardent prayer. Thou shouldst not to her banded foes Have lent thy ready ear, Nor seen them desolate her joys Without a filial tear; Though all beside her banner-fold Had trampled down and rent, Thou shouldst have propp'd its shattered staff With loyalty unspent; Though all beside had recreant proved, Thou shouldst have stood to aid, Like Abdiel, dreadless seraph, Alone, yet undismayed. Who sleepeth at Mount Vernon, In the glory of his fame? Yet, go in silent infamy, Nor dare pronounce his name, For thou hast of their sacred force, His farewell counsels reft, And help'd to scatter to the winds The rich bequest he left; And in the darkest trial-hour, Forsook the endangered side, And, ere the cock crew thrice, thy true Discipleship denied. Oh! that the pitying Prince of Peace On thee his glance might bend, And from remediless remorse Preserve our long-loved friend. Hartford, Conn., May 21, 1861. -
Francis, I will endeavor to give you a slight sketch of the most important incidents, and of the battle at Mount Vernon, Saint Francis County, between Colonel Carter's Texas Rangers and the Fifth Kansas cavalry, under Lieutenant-Colonel Jenkins. ext morning, about two P. M., a despatch came, ordering the Colonel (as we understood) to proceed to Hugh's Ferry, via Mount Vernon, and ascertain the whereabouts of Dobbins's regiment of guerrillas, as well as the practicability of crossing the wholrom us. Passing the Fifth Illinois about four P. M., we proceeded to a point about five miles beyond; and when nearing Mount Vernon, the quick, sharp report of the rifles of the advanced guard notified us of the proximity of the enemy; a loud and morvates so severely wounded as to have beds; they admit they were beaten. Colonel Clayton defeated them at Taylor's Creek, with the First Indiana, and Colonel Jenkins at Mt. Vernon with the Fifth Kansas--a punishment they will not soon forget. O. S.
iments to be thrown together, which constitute this brigade; the command of same being given to me. We were then ordered to Camp Kearny, 6 miles south of Newtonia. . . . Whilst at Camp Kearny we attacked the Federals at Newtonia, driving them some 10 miles, in which engagement we lost Colonel Hays. We then moved up to Newtonia. In a few days thereafter we attacked a part of Colonel Phillips' brigade, near Carthage, routing them. We likewise, after that, had two skirmishes with them at Mount Vernon, some 30 miles northeast of Newtonia, driving their pickets in, and on one occasion driving their forces out of Mount Vernon, some 10 miles east. During all this time, we were some 40 miles in advance of General Rains, and were required to scout all the country in his front, from Cassville west to Scott's mill, 18 miles west, which required on an average from 700 to 1,000 men daily. We were joined, about the 27th of September, by Colonel Cooper, who assumed command. On the 30th we fo

A Southern merchant R in Caiso. --Mr. G. A. Faulkner, a merchant from Mount Vernon, Ark., arrived here yesterday from Paducah, via Cairo. He states that he reached the latter place last Monday afternoon, and when passing from the steamer Tom Scott to the railroad packet, he was assailed by half a score of Federal troops, who, after subjecting him to a rigid interrogation as to the sentiment prevailing in the South, and the strength of her troops, wrested from his possession a handsome Colt's navy pistol and $83 in gold, all the money he had. On asking them to leave him enough money to get home with, they rudely told him to go to h — I, and get home as best he could. Mr. Faulkner took the precaution to sent his goods from Louisville via Paducah. Tennessee river. Nashville and Memphis.--Memphis (Tenn.) Bulletin.
