estern Collectors not only to refuse clearances, but to search every boat, train, &c., bound South, seize both munitions of war and supplies of provisions, and bring shippers and carriers to justice for adding the "Southern rebels." Kentucky and Missouri are the only slaveholding States bordering on the Ohio and Mississippi exempt from the prohibition. The following lie is telegraphed from Washington to the New York Herald: A gentleman from the North, who has been residing in Richmond ness connected with the Government. He will have command of a large force, and will proceed as soon as possible through the Indian country to Fort Smith, for the purpose of retaking that post, and all others belonging to the Government, in both Missouri and Arkansas. General Lane stated before leaving Washington, that with one thousand men, such as he could bring into the field, he could march successfully through that entire section of country.

Without any exaggeration, a million of warriors can be brought into this contest, who will fight with a courage such as the world never saw surpassed. With the exception of inconsiderable portions of Kentucky, which have been settled by men from the Ohio side, the people of that gallant State are with the South both heart and soul, and the same is true of the great mass of Missouri. Glorious Tennessee has summoned fifty thousand of her volunteers to the field. There were the men whose fire at New Orleans was so destructive that the British commander thought they were regulars, and actually hung a man for giving him what he supposed the false information that the men whom he attacked were only volunteers from Tennessee. Many a battle of New Orleans will the North have to fight before the first year of this war is ended.
