x,) is produced in a human being. More than sixty years ago it was discovered that persons who had caught the cow- pox from cows affected with this disease could not take the small-pox. The Southern Confederacy, in an interesting article on the subject, says: Sixty years ago (May 14, 1796,) matter was taken from the hand of Sarah Nelmes, a dairy maid, who had been affected by her master's cows, and inserted into the arms of James Phipps, a healthy boy about eight years old. On the 1st of July small-pox matter, fresh from pustule, was carefully inserted in several places in his arms, but no disease followed. If small-pox matter be inserted under the skin of a healthy individual, he will have small pox; if the saliva of a mad dog be inserted hydrophobia will follow; if a lymph from a cow-pox vesicle be inserted cow-pox may be looked for as the natural consequence. But if putrid matter from an ulcer or sore be used, it will be as likely to produce hydrophobia, measles, or w
ore and Ohio Railroad, near Piedmont, yesterday, to the effect that on Sunday last, Lieut. Col. Downey, of the 3d Maryland regiment, and 200 soldiers were captured by the rebels at Moorefield. Lieut. Col. Downey and two companies of his regiment were commanding the post at Moorefield, when a portion of Gen. Ewell's rebel army came down upon him, surprising and capturing the whole force. The following, in relation to the same affair, is from the Associated Press: Martinsburg, July 1.--Colonel Harness, formerly of Ashby's Cavalry, captured Moorefield on Sunday afternoon, and one hundred of the Maryland Home Guard, who held the place, were all taken prisoners. They were subsequently paroled by Harness, and sent to Cumberland with accoutrements, but without guns. The Marylanders were deceived about the number of rebels. They were reported four thousand strong. Harness has got himself in a bad box, as he cannot escape capture. Captain Carter, of the Jessie Scou

eir patriotism that few will be disposed to make, and that none can justify. The legislation of your last session intended to hasten the funding of outstanding Treasury nates, has proved beneficial as shown by the returns annexed to the report of the Secretary of the Treasury. But it was neither sufficiently prompt nor far-reaching to meet the full extent of the evil. The passage of some enactment, carrying still further the policy of that law by fixing a limitation not later than the 1st July next to the delay allowed for funding the notes issued prior to the 1st December, 1862, will in the opinion of the Secretary, have the effect to draw from circulation nearly the entire sum issued previous to the last named date. If to this be added a revenue from adequate taxation, and a negotiation of bonds guaranteed proportionately by the several States, as has already been generously proposed by some of them in enactments spontaneously adopted, there is little doubt that we shall see
all be drawn by lot half yearly, the first drawing to take effect on March 1st, 1864, and to be continued to 1st September following, and on the 1st March and 1st September in every succeeding year, so as finally to extinguish the loan in twenty years from the first drawing. The bonds to be issued at ninety per cent., which is to be paid as follows: 5 per cent. on application. 10 per cent. on allotment. 10 per cent. on 1st May. 10 per cent. on 1st June. 10 per cent. on 1st July. 15 per cent. on 1st August. 15 per cent. on 1st September, less dividend 3½ per cent. 15 per cent. on 1st October. £90 Subscribers will have the option of paying the instalments in advance on allotment, or on any of the above dates, under a discount of seven per cent. per annum on such pre-payments, but in default of the payment of the respective instalments all previous payments will be liable to forfeiture.

Congressional Summary. In the Seriats, Friday, a House bill was passed planing in the military service of the Confederate States, after the 1st of July next, all parsons claiming to be citizens of the United States, (Including Marylanders,) residing or sojourning in the Confederate States. The House bill to punish trading in Yankee Treasury notes or bonds was postponed until the next session. A report relative to the case of Major Tochman was agreed to. It expresses the opinion that he had reason to believe that he was to be appointed to the command of a brigade, and that his services would, no doubt, have been eminently advantageous in the position for which he supposed himself designed. A message from the President was received, returning with his disapproval, the act to authorise the transmission of newspapers to soldiers free of postage. The House amendment to the Senate bill establishing the Confederate flag was concurred in. At 4 o'clock the Senate
held on the 27th of April, the following gentlemen being chosen to fill the position, viz: John H. Hatcher, C. C. McRae, Claiborn Burnett, P. D. McKinney, Wm, H. Garnett, Emmett W Weisiger, and James Batler. Considerable excitement prevailed on the subject of the election, and the friends of the respective candidates labored vigorously for their election. Despite the war this ancient town has improved considerably within the past two years. It has sent several companies to the field who have done good service. Lately arrangements have been made to build a paper mill, the foundation of which has already been commenced. The whole building is experted to be ready by the 1st of July. It will be created on the cauri, west of the cotton factory. Manchester, which was founded long prior to the Revolution, was settled by Scotch emigrants and as long ago as 1680 a paper used to be published there. Probably at come future time the town may become to Richmond what Brooklyn is to New York.
