ed Louis Napoleon to send a garrison to Ancona. Four men-of-war are victualling at Toulon, and are immediately to be sent to the Syrian coast.

Is this right? Is it not robbing ourselves of provisions, and is it not furnishing our enemies with the means of protracting the struggle?

A Black Republican outrage in Massachusetts. The following letter from a respectable citizen of Wales, Mass., to a gentleman in New York, is copied from the Day Book of that city: Wales, Mass., 29th July, 1861. Sir: I received your kind letter of the 5th inst., and was rejoiced that you take such an interest in my unhappy case. As you want me to give a true statement of the outrage committed upon Zeno Farrington, Jr., and myself, I will comply with your request. On the 5th of May, as early as 9 o'clock, the Republicans began to gather from a very district. The night previous their flag had been cut down, and the pretence was they had met for their purpose of ascertaining who had done the deed. They repaired to the Town Hall, a meeting, passed many appropriate resolutions, and came to the conclusion that it was Farrington or myself, or both of us, who had none it.

This incident reminded him of home, and his sister Pauline, concerning whom he has much to say. May 8, he "wrote home for the seventh or eighth time, and was mustered into the service of the Confederate States." Now the reality of his situation opened to him. He "felt homesick," he says, "because he could not hea
