empted to plunder the Treasury of nearly one million of dollars, with a party at his back proclaiming hostility to slavery and slave-owners; who claim the right and declare their purpose to be to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia--in the forts, arsenals, and dock-yards — and who are pledged to repeal the fugitive law, and to prohibit the sale of slaves from one State to another, and what will be the condition of Virginia, and especially of your country, the Eastern Shore, with Fortress Monroe, manned by a Black B-publican army, the rendesvous for all your fugitive slaves, and the Navy at head to protect them as they sail from your waters ? What will be the condition a Norfolk when, with this state of thirgs, the Navy-Yard shall become the receptacle of her runaway negroes? What will be left you then but to fight for your property, your homes, your liberty, aye, and your lives, and with the disadvantage of having your forts and arsenals turned against you ? Will you submit t
their positions. All persons hereafter displaying the Confederate flag are to be arrested and subjected to punishment by the military authorities. It is reported that the Confederate General, Price, is at Springfield with only ten thousand men. No news from the Burnside expedition.--There was no flag of truce on Sunday, and consequently the steamer yesterday morning brought no Southern intelligence. The reported loss of the Louistana and other vessels of the fleet is doubted at Fortress Monroe. Federal Financial Difficulties. The following is from the money article of the Philadelphia Ledger, of the 27th: The truth is, our financial difficulties are daily more and more complicated. Congress is by no means a unit on the scheme reported by the Committee of Ways and Means, and there is even more diversity of opinion as to the tax bills. Thinsing men are beginning to stand aghast at the monstrous proportions of the debt that is accumulating, and the financiers ar
aden with 1,700 rifles, 800 kegs of powder, 80 boxes revolvers. The Graps Shot, laden with bombs; the New Brunswick, with the 6th Mains regiment, and the Pocahontas had on board the Rhode Island battery. The Eastern Queen and many other vessels, thirty or forty in number, are missing and probably lost." Despite adverse circumstances, Burnside has succeeded in getting inside of Hatteras, and in now awaiting reinforcements. A portion of the gun-boats chartered refused to leave Fortress Monroe. In New York the misfortunes of the Burnside expedition was the theme on every tongue. Wall street brokers see in it only a vast amount of money gone. Ship merchants discover, a new market for old ships. Most people consider it an untimely disaster. The Confederates were carefully watching the movements of the fleet. Gen. Burnside says he could not get any pilots, and the stores had to be landed on rafts. Col. Allan, of New Jersey, a surgeon, and two others were drowned i
Captain Hunter, of the C. S. N., says he has never reported an enemy's vessel inside of Pamlico Sound, but only stated that he had counted twenty-odd vessels of all descriptions, including eight steamers, at anchor near Hatteras, while returning from his usual cruise of observation on the 6th and 7th inst. About twenty negroes made their escape Monday night from their owners living on the Tanner's Creek road, near this city. They stole a large fishing boat, and no doubt escaped to Fortress Monroe. I learn that Mr. Wm. H. Talbot has lost four; Captain Hancock, one R. H. Wilkins, one; W. W. Hawkins, two; D. Simmons, two; W. J. Denby, two; besides others, whose names and losses I cannot give. Some of these negroes are very valuable, and the loss falls heavily upon their owners, who are known to have been remarkably kind to them. They have gone to their worst enemies, and will soon sorely regret their course in leaving comfortable homes and kind masters to be enslaved and compell
re were 1,200 sick soldiers in the hospitals at Washington, Alexandria, and Georgetown, on the 17th inst. Lieut. Frank E. Brownwell, the Ellsworth Zouave who killed Jackson in Alexandria, has been ordered to open a recruiting station, at Oswego, N. Y., for the regular army. Miscellaneous. A Yankee correspondent has had an interview with a gentleman who arrived at Baltimore on the 24th instant, from the South. He was in Richmond on the 19th instant, and represents affairs in that city as in a miserable condition. The soldiers rolled around the city without let or hindrance, visiting drinking saloons, gambling hells, and doing all sorts of infamous deeds, from highway robbery to murder. There is no official news of the Burnside expedition; but, from rebel journals received at Fortress Monroe on Saturday, we received the vague information that the United States transport Louisiana had gone ashore and was burned to save her from falling into the hands of the enemy.
