The Prisons. --William Bradshaw and R.

At the Libby thirteen escaped Yankee prisoners from Danville were booked yesterday. Four others from Georgia were also deposited in that institution. Only four thousand prisoners now remain in this city, the large number here for some time back having been reduced to that figure by sending them off to Georgia, and by flag of truce North. A white man, named Thomas Emory, was arrested yesterday and locked up in the cage, charged with stealing two trunks from Mary Johnson. This is the third person who has been arrested for this offence.

e rear. On the 1st of July the corps received orders to move to Gettysburg. It was detained, however, several hours by Johnson's division and the train of wagons which came into the road from Shippensburg. McLaws's division, notwithstanding this t there was no better officer in the whole of this army or one more highly esteemed. Just as Latimer ceased firing, Johnson's infantry was ordered forward to the attack. It was now not more than on half an hour before sunset. In passing down further effort to advance, the ground being now to him, and very rugged and precipitous. Gen. Early, upon hearing Gen. Johnson's infantry engaged, sent forward Hayes's Louisiana and Hoke's North Carolina brigade, (under Col. Avery.) These troopsbrought to bear on the line of Rodes's advance. When the second day closed this was the position of Ewell's corps. Johnson's left had gained important ground, part of it being a very short distance from the top of the mountain, which, if once

ast New York Herald says: "Ordinary men, they come from their country villages to the seat of government with all the passions, prejudices and narrow views of local politicians. They are full of the ideas and feelings of the war after it is over and fast becoming a matter of history. Events, with mighty strides, rush on like railroad cars, and leave them gazing in wonderment behind.--They are bewildered, and flounder about in uncertainty, first one way and then another, not knowing rightly where they are. It is a pity they cannot be sent back to their constituencies to find out the change that has taken place. A year or so, however, is not long in the life of a nation, and the time will soon come round when they will be taught an impressive lesson. In the meantime we do not despair of the progress of the country; for President Johnson has the wisdom, power and firmness to carry us safely through, in spite of the unrepresentative Congress with which he may have to contend.

Is there any prospect of a War with France? This question may be better answered by W. H. Seward than by any one else; and he does so, we take it, in the following editorial article in the New York Times. That paper argues earnestly in declaring: "Neither in the message of President Johnson, in the diplomatic correspondence of Secretary Seward, in the War and Navy Department reports, nor in any of the other official documents recently given to the country, do they find the least encouragement given to any one of their schemes, or the least prospect held out of their being treated with anything but reprobation. In treating of our controversies with other Powers, the President was careful to adopt a tone at once vigorous and conciliatory. So far as was necessary, our relations with other Powers were commented upon; but in regard to none of them was a word used indicating that any of our controversies were of such a character as to require war or menace for a solution. He
everal of the New England Republican newspapers disclaim any responsibility for Mr. Sumner's white-washing speech — among them the Hartford Courant, warmly. The issue joined. We have the programme announced simultaneously at New York by Mr. Greeley, and at Washington by General Banks, that the coercive power of the Government is to be exercised upon the Southern States until they shall concede the elective franchise to the negro. We may regard the issue [between these men and President Johnson] as fairly joined after these announcements. Henceforth the policy of conciliation towards the President by Mr. Greeley, and those whom he represents, means that conciliation which shall constrain the President to abandon the bulwarks of the Constitution, for the defence of which he has arrayed himself; and it does not at all mean a conciliation which looks to any abatement of their demands.--Sun.
