The officers are on their parole. The following intelligence also comes by way of New Orleans: The Pensacola correspondent of the Mobile advertiser, under date of the 26th inst. says that several barbette guns have been removed from Fort Pickens for some purpose unknown, and nine batteries have been erected outside the fort. The Montgomery correspondent of the same paper says that much anxiety exists relative to the present conflict in the border States, especially Maryland and Virginia. Great activity existed in the War Department. Troops were being hurried into the field, and the Cabinet had decided to call out fourteen regiments, in addition to thir
Who is he? --The Cincinnati Enquirer, of the 6th inst., publishes the following: One of the first merchants in Richmond, Va., and one of its wealthiest citizens, in reply to a business firm in this city, who had expressed regret that they had heard of his having joined the Secessionists, wrote, on the 26th ult., that--

Mountaineer has been shown a counterfeit $20 bill of the Bank of Hamburg, S. C. It was exceedingly well executed. Col. J. L.

that the tax shall be levied upon all classes of the community --upon the income, salaries and wages of the manufacturing and commercial classes, as well as upon the lands of the farmers. Mr. Chase committed the indiscretion of recommending the imposition of a direct tax on land alone, and would have exempted the urban populations of the North from the extra burden. His plan does not please the rural classes of the North, and the following significant debate took place in the House on the 26th ult., Mr. Spalding, who is the immediate representative of Mr. Seward, leading off: The House then went into committee on the direct tax bill, Mr. Colfax in the chair. Mr. Spalding, of New York, obtained the floor, and in an elaborate speech urged the passage of the act as a matter of pressing necessity to the Government. Already Government loans bearing interest at six per cent, were found unsaleable, or could be disposed of only at 82 or 85 cents on the dollar; and it had become
Destructive hail storm --The Washington (N. C.) Dispatch, of the 30th ult., says that a most disastrous hail storm occurred in that section on the night of the 26th, which seemed to sweep in a regular current, carrying desolation in its train. At Long Acre and Bath Creek Districts, in Beaufort county, corn and other crops were wholly destroyed. Many of the stones found next morning were as large as a man's fist.
The bogus Legislature. --This body, which has been in session at Wheeling, adjourned on the 26th ult., to re-assemble on the 6th of August. It appears that an adjournment was contemplated previous to the battle of Manassas, but Lincoln telegraphed the traitors to hold on — that an attack was about to be made upon the "Rebels"--and that a transfer of their body to Richmond would then be an easy matter — The bogus conclave "held on," but did not come to Richmond! A summary of the proceedings is appended, for the benefit of the curious: A stay law was enacted; a partial bill was passed, authorizing the Governor to organize a patrol in such counties as may need them, and about two hundred thousand dollars were appropriated for carrying on the Government. A similar sum was also appropriated for military purposes. On the last day of the session resolutions were adopted, pledging the members of the Legislature, in their individual capacity, to use all their efforts in effectin

Such preparations as were possible for the landing were made in the evening, and at daylight next morning dispositions were madody placed the necessary funds at the disposal of the Department, active preparations were made. --As the co-operation of the War Department was necessary, other preliminaries requiring time were indispensable, so that it was not until Monday, the 26th ult., that the expedition sailed. The success is perfect, and every anticipation of the Department is realized. Among the papers captured was a press copy of a letter from the late American Consul at Rio, Robert G. Scott, giving a list of al
an excited people, they will be sent East. Important naval movement in New Orleans. The Charleston Mercury has the following from its special correspondent: New Orleans, Aug. 28.--A passenger, who has just arrived in this city from Brashear city, by the Opelousas Railroad, reports that two Navy officers, of the Confederate States--Lieutenant Shepard and J. H. Loper, the Supervising Engineer of the Navy Station — had arrived at that place, and, at 2 o'clock in the morning of the 26th, had seized the steamer Picayune, which had just arrived with freight and passengers. They placed on board an armed force of 25 men from a Confederate States man-of-war steamer, and proceeded down to the mouth of the Bayon Chine for the purpose of attacking a Lincoln armed blockading schooner--one of the tenders of the United States steamer Huntsville. Commodore Hollins approves of their course. An order for Sullivan's Island. The Charleston papers publish the following order fro
on, to dismount a portion of his command to dislodge him. This was done under fire with coolness, and resulted in the enemy's total rout--seven being killed on the spot, and ten captured, including a Lieut. and 1st Sergt., three of whom were wounded.--Col. Lee's loss was 1 killed, (private Tucker, Co. A,) and two wounded, one of the latter the lamented Chichester, having since died. This affair occurred in sight of the enemy's encampments, and caused alarm throughout their line. On the 26th ult., Col. R. Ransom, Jr., 1st North Carolina cavalry, with a portion of his regiment, came upon a column of the enemy's cavalry near Vienna; and although he had the disadvantage in numbers, charged him with so much spirit and skill as to put to ignominious flight the entire column — the officers leading. The difficulties of the road were, however, so great, that he captured only 26, together with their arms, equipments, and, for the most part, their horses, besides killing and wounding a nu
Latest from the North,the Mason-Slidell affair.Gen. Scott's mission.&c., &c., &c.

The British Government have not presented their ultimatum. The Cabinet have had no consultation on the matter yet. Prince Albert died on the 14th inst. His disease was typhoid fever. The Paris Patrie says that all the great Powers of Europe have been consulted by Great Britain with regard to the arrest of Mason and Slidell, and they concur in declaring the conduct of Wilkes a gross violation of all the rights of neutrals. The Burnside expedition will not leave Annapolis until some time after Christmas. Its destination is for shallow rivers, probably south of Norfolk, as the vessels are all small and of light draft.
