while a large number were badly wounded. The Yankees, in their hasty retreat, left upon and near the shore a number of sand bags, picks, spades and other implements useful in the erection of batteries, besides many cartridge boxes and a valuable rifle. Thus ends the "first chapter of Mathias." The second, if called for, will be just like it, only a little more so. Before I close, allow me to notice briefly a paragraph which appeared in a letter from this county in your issue of the 24th June The writer, in referring to a cavalry company that recently organized in the county, but which afterwards disbanded on account of circumstances beyond their control, not only does injustice to the worthy officer who acted as captain during the existence of the company, but indirectly casts an imputation up on its members, which I feel called upon to repel. The company was originally formed as a guerilla force, and during its formation was regularly drilled as such by Dr. Richard H. Potts,
Abolitionism Jubilant burning of the Constitution.[from the New York Daily News, June 24.] Year by year, the people of the United States have witnessed the ceremony, on each recurring Fourth of July, of the "burning of the Constitution," by Abolition fanatics. --They have met together, and, after listening to the diabolical harangues of a Senator Wilson, a Wendell Phillips, or a Garrison, have renewed the proclamation that the Constitution was "a league with hell and a covenant with death;" that the God of the Old Testament possessed no attributes of the Deity, because that sacred book sanctions slavery, and, amid blasphemous orgies worthy of the Mahichean Conventicles of the middle ages, have consigned to the flames the wise at instrument of legislation that ever was framed in the history of mankind.--In these disordered times, men have been threatened with hanging, shooting, and other consign punishments, for calmly asserting that brothers should not shed each other's blood; fo

Several of the men refused to take the oath of allegiance, alleging that after signing the articles of agreement no such oath could be exacted. They were, of course, discharged. From Central America. The Panama Star and Herald of June 24 has been received. Its only news from Central America is the following. "The French exploring expedition which left this city in April, to cross the Isthmus at the Darien, with the view of making further investigations as to the practicability of opening a ship canal, returned on the 17th inst., having been unable to effect their object, owing to the heavy rains.

The great fire in London.--First appearance of the flames.[from the London Star, June 24] The metropolis on Saturday evening was visited by one of the most terrific conflagrations that has probably occurred since the great fire in 1666. Certainly, for the amount of property destroyed, nothing like it has been experienced the last half century, the loss being estimated at £2,000,000. The scene of this catastrophe was on the water side of Tooley street, nearest London Bridge — a locality which has been singularly unfortunate during the last twenty-five years--some of the largest fires have occurred there. The out break took place in the extensive range of premises known as Cotton's wharf and bonded warehouses, belonging to Messrs. Scovell. They had an extensive river frontage, and the whole space on the land side extending to Tooley street was covered with eight or nine massive brick warehouses, six stories in height, some of which were formerly used as ordnance (Government) st

r army is, in a great measure, owing to the want of care on the part of regimental and company officers, whose duty lies as much in looking to the health and habits of their men as in teaching them the use of arms or in leading them into battle. The Westminster Review gives the following statistics illustrative of the power of disease: "The statistics of the Chef d'etat Major quoted by Canot, who was War Minister, gives the numbers of the invading army which crossed the Nieman on the 24th June at 302,000 men, 104,000 horses. On the advance to Moscow was fought the great battle of Borodino. In this battle there were put hors de combat --that is, killed and wounded — on the side of the Russians no less than thirty Generals, 1,600 officers, and 42,000 men, while the French, according to Marshal Berthier's papers, subsequently taken at Wilma, had in killed and wounded forty Generals, 1,800 officers, and 52,000 men.
