d at Fortress Monroe yesterday. He will probably leave very shortly for his command at Ship Island. The wind blew a heavy gale here Monday, from about southwest. Trees, fences, &c., were thrown down by the force of the wind, and the water in the harbor was greatly agitated. The ferry steamers crossed the river with difficulty, and on several occasions failed to land passengers at the ferry wharf. The sounds of North Carolina were doubtless exceedingly rough, and it is hoped some of Lincoln's fleet are driven ashore and knocked to pieces by the breakers, or have gone to the bottom of the sea. The steamer Kahukee went to the Roads yesterday, and after communicating with a Federal steamer, returned with a number of ladies and several gentlemen, who are destined to various parts of the South. Yesterday the case of the Commonwealth us. Lieutenant M. B. Gilmore, of the First Louisiana regiment, charged with the killing of private Mullaney, came up for examination in the H
ncipally women and children, came up in the flag of truce boat. The New York Herald advances the opinion that a great battle will soon occur near Nashville. The Confederate troops were actively engaged at Columbus on Monday, for an important movement. A flag of truce had been sent from Columbus by the Confederates to the Federal gunboats. Some of the Southern officers went on board and had a consultation for two hours with the Federal officers. The squadron then left. President Lincoln signed, on Tuesday, the Treasury Note bill for two hundred millions. The fifty millions previously issued will be recognized as a legal tender. A bill passed the House on Tuesday, prohibiting all military officers from restoring fugitives from justice; thus virtually repealing the fugitive slave law. A resolution was also adopted, instructing the Committee of Ways and Means to inquire into the expediency of imposing an export duty of three cents per pound on cotton, and that
ctive which could be applied for the defence and protection of the Northwestern section. Mr. Richard on regretted that the gentleman from Cabell (Mr. Laidley) had based his opposition upon a pecuniary consideration. Mr. Laidley repelled the assertion that he was influenced in his opposition to the bill by pecuniary motives. He had but one object — the independence of the South--and he was willing to sacrifice everything to that cause. Mr. Lynn was opposed to asking favors of Lincoln and his party; and if we are going to bow to the Yankees every time our property is in danger, we'll never achieve our independence. The amendments of the Senate were concurred in. Mr. Anderson, of Botetourt, called up the bill authorizing field artillery to be made, and small arms to be purchased, for the defence of the State, and appropriating $100,000 for that purpose. Mr. Barbour was opposed to the lavish expenditure of the public money at this time He could show, if the
urt. --The following, among other cases, were disposed of by the Mayor on yesterday: Patrick Sharry, arrested for assaulting Richard Wright, on Main street, Wednesday night, was committed in default of surety to keep the peace. Charles Muller, who interfered with and resisted the watchmen on the occasion of Sharry's arrest, was sent to keep him company. The parties were burly, rough, and determined looking subjects. John Gold was brought up for declaring himself a subject of Lincoln, and expressing the hope and belief that the Stars and Stripes might soon wave over Richmond as they once had done. Elias Paulding, an ugly, brutish looking fellow, on his "pal's" arrest declared the same sentiments, and was taken along by two gentlemen who heard their treasonable discourse at Ford's, on Cary street. Singular to say, the fellow, Gold, is a discharged member of the Polish Brigade. The Mayor told the parties that they had now gotten where no certificate of disability could
with the United States, in consequence of the commission of some act — underhand or event — of active sympathy with the Southern rebels, and that the English ministers had determined to wheedle, to prevaricate, and even endeavor to intimidate, Mr. Lincoln from time to time, hoping that eventually the "fortune of arms" would be with the rebels, and then the Queen could and would recognize them. Indeed, Earl Russell used the above very remarkable words in a conversation which he had with Messrs. Yancey, Mann and Rost on the subject. Lord Lyons was instructed to inform Mr. Lincoln that, in case of war with the United States, England would consent to abolish privateering, as between the two countries during the war, if the President would do the same — a modest proposition, truly, coming from a Power boasting even then of having twenty thousand guns on her war ships, to a Power engaged in quelling the most formidable rebellion ever before known. The observations of Messrs. Gre<
us to themselves and scaradalone to the service. The disquiet, disturbances, and crimes, that have arisen in the city — the demoralization of the army that has followed the excesses of the Metropolis — and the very great injury and detriment suffered by the Government from the free and unrestricted ingress and egress of spies, are evils that demand a most prompt and efficient remedy. The Lincoln Government placed Washington city under martial law at the time of the inauguration of Lincoln, and have kept it under the most rigid rule ever since. The Northern Government has established the most thorough system of espionage, with its chief and his hundreds of detectives. Yet we have done Little or nothing to check irregularities and vices perilous to military discipline, and less to check the machinations and movements of spies. Our em of passes amounts to nothing. Any man may travel a few miles from the city and take the care at a way station without question. He may, in
ied out without intolerable bad faith to the Union men of the North and the South. If this was to be the policy of the Government in the prosecution of this war, then a gross deception has been practiced on all loyal , and an army has been raised by false pretences, more flagrant than had ever before been advanced to carry out a secret and unhallowed purpose. We must adhere to the Union as our fathers made it, and not as capricious politicians would determine Mr. Voorhees quoted from President Lincoln's Inaugural Address and Messages to show that the latter had said that the neither had the power nor the inclination to interfere with slavery in the States and that he would execute the Fugitive Slave Law. Mr. Voorhees also referred to General McClellan's proclamation on entering Virginia, to the effect that the army will not only abstain from all interference with slavery, but with a strong hand crush out any attempts at insurrection. This was looked on as a pledge auctioned by the
