Col Colt. --The New York Sun denounces Col. Sam. Colt as a miserable wretch and a traitor, because he has raised the price of his fire-arms 25 per cent.; and demands his speedy trial and punishment for treason against the United States.
Old Abe Surd. --Father Abraham would doubtless be surprised to learn that he has become the "defendant" in a law suit in Thomas county, "away down here in Georgia; " but it is true, nevertheless. As President of the United States, he is held responsible for the taking of the late census, and as few of the officers have received their pay, our fellow-citizen, Mr. Wade F. Sanford, who does not covet a place in father "Abraham's bosom," has entered suit against the arch defaulter, and garnishees the postmasters in various cities in Georgia to force Abraham to an honest adjustment.-- Thomasville Enterprise.
Arrest for treason in Connecticut. --Jas. S. Kent, of Richmond, Va., and President of the Union Arms Manufacturing Company of that city, was arrested in Tolland, Ct., and taken to Hartford, on Monday, on a charge of giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the State. The offence alleged was that Mr. Kent endeavored to induce a workman at Sharp's factory to go to Richmond to work on arms to be used by the troops of the Confederate States. The person to whom application was made declared that Mr. Kent was not the man. It was also stated by those who know Mr. Kent that he is not of secession proclivities. He was honorably discharged.
France and the Confederacy. --The Washington Chronicle, of Saturday, confirms the letter of the N. Y. Times in relation to a conversation between the French Minister of Foreign Affairs and Mr. Faulkner, and says: "The Secretary of State, in a recent letter to Mr. Dayton, our new French Minister, clearly but firmly instructs him in relation to this subject, and wishes him to directly and unequivocally inform the French Government that our own will, in no event, in any way, sanction or permit the separation of the Union--a Union which has not only in the past, but will in the future, confer its benign blessings on the citizens of the United States.--Such, we verbally learn, is but a faint outline of the important correspondence."
o their senses, and the treason will die out." They ignore the difficulties which European States may feel in refusing to recognize the principles on which the United States were founded when they find them embodied in a new Confederation, which, so far as we know, may be to all intents and purposes constituted in an entire indepenreference to domestic politics still more weighty inducements to hold them. The effect produced in the North and Northwest by an attack on the forts while the United States flag is floating over them would be as useful to the Government at Washington as the effect of abandoning the forts or tamely surrendering them would be hurtfusaid. It must be borne till results show that it cannot be persisted in. Then only will it be repealed or modified. The theory of the Government is, that the United States always takes far more from Europe than it can pay for. "If the revenue is collected there is no ground for complaint. The English and French manufacturer will

Van Dorn to intercept and capture the fugitive troops, consisted of the steamers Fashion, propeller Mobile, and United States, with about 800 men on board, collected from the surrounding counties. Breastworks of cotton bales (cotton, you see, is always king,) were constructed around the sides of the vessels, to protect the men from the deadly rifles of the United Sithin ten days. The Ordinance of Secession, or Declaration of Independence, will be submitted to the people, and not a vote will be polled against it in this city and county.--An offensive and defensive alliance will be consummated with the Confederate States through their representative, Mr. Hilliard, to continue till a union can be effected; or if this be not desired at present, there is an indissoluble union in any event, created by the policy of the Federal Administration. The insults, indi

Strategical policy of the Southern Confederacy. --The New York Journal of Commerce has an editorial upon this subject, in which occurs the following: Without stopping to inquire further into the nature of the extraordinary rumors in circulation for some time past, in reference to a threatened invasion of the District of Columbia, it is at least safe to suggest as a possible truth, that it has been the persistent policy of the Confederate States, since the first alarm of war, to tempt the North into an enormous scale of expenditure for military purposes, and thus to produce a more speedy exhaustion. It would appear as though no means had been neglected — no artifice unemployed — which might tend to this result. The announced intention of the Confederacy to grant letters of marque, for aught that appears to the contrary, is not likely to be carried into execution; embargoes laid upon commerce at Southern ports have been raised; and Northern vessels seized have been released,

Foreign soldiers. We referred yesterday to the fact that our brutal assailants had enlisted adopted citizens of the United States in their armies to invade and fight against that Virginia which, a few years ago, when they were threatened with destruction, interposed her broad buckler, and rolled back the tide which, up to tha gallantly supporting the cause of freedom and independence. We know the kind of terrorism which has compelled the Roman Catholics of Philadelphia to hoist an United States flag upon their cathedral, when no other church was required to do the same, and the evident distrust which that implies of the Catholic population; but these are better able to fight it now than at any future time. Every one recollects that in that same city of Philadelphia, where they have been forced to hoist the United States flag on their cathedral, the Catholic churches were once assailed and burned by a furious mob, but the Catholics stood gallantly to their guns, and, in the end

Extra session of the Provisional Congress of the Confederate States.Fourth day. Montgomery, Ala., May 2. Congress assembled to-day at noon, and, after prayer, the Journals of yesterday were read and confirmed Mr. Morton, of Florida, aneorgia, offered the following bill : A Bill further to provide for the Public Defence. Whereas. The Confederate States of America are menaced with war and an invasion of their territory; and whereas, the public welfare and safety may requi States, without the formality and delay of a call upon the respective States: Be it therefore enacted, by the Confederate States, in Congress assembled, That the Secretary of War, by and with the advice and consent of the President, be authoriza do enact. That there shall be appointed by the President such number of chaplains, to serve with the army of the Confederate States, during the existing war, as he may deem expedient; and the President shall assign them to such regiments, brigades

led, and that this fratricidal war has been checked in the outset. But, supposing that the worst has happened, and, either through the naval operations of the United States or an attack on the Federal forts by their rivals, hostilities have begun, it is plain that a conflict of no common kind must follow. The Confederate States, Confederate States, though without a navy, and consequently forced, for the most part, to remain on the defensive, will be an enemy not easy to deal with. True, they are not so powerful in men or resources as they anticipated some months ago. The fidelity of the border States to the Union has been a great disappointment to the Montgomery politiciansdelay which has taken place. Before Mr. Buchanan left office Major Anderson was in extreme danger; no time was to be lost in relieving Fort Pickens and the Confederate States themselves were lowering their tariff and letting in the productions of Europe at a rate which would make every idler in the Border States take to smuggling
