Operations near Charleston. Charleston, July 2. --The enemy exhibits activity on James's Island, and seems to have abandoned the intention of advancing across the Island, via Secessionville, and is landing troops higher up Stono river, as if with the view of flanking Fort Pemberton. The Yankees have a large force of contrabands throwing up works near Turn Cut Bridge, below Fort Pemberton.

The news from America. [From the London Times, July 3] The present state of the campaign in America has been expected by every reasonable observer on this side of the ocean. The event may prove to the Northern people that the English are not such prejudiced judges and ignorant commentators as has been asserted at Washington. Ever since the beginning of this unhappy conflict, the crowning victory which was to restore the South to Federal supremacy has always been dancing like a Will o'-the-Wisp before the eyes of the Northerners. It has led them through a boundless waste of blood and money, it has caused them to stir up batches which a century perhaps will hardly appease, and it now glimmers before them as deceptively as ever, while they are sinking slowly but surely into the slough of national disorganization and bankruptcy. When Mr. Lincoln called out his first 75,000 men, the 4th of July, 1861, was fixed for the termination of the rebellion, which was declared to be rep

The recruiting officers are now more than ever convinced that 15,000 or 20,000 men could be at once raised in this city by adopting that course. The Treason case in Boston. The case of Charles P. Gordon and others, charged with using seditious and treasonable language, with cheering for Jeff, Davis, and giving vent to exultation, on the 3d of July, when rumors of the defeat of the Union arms reached Boston, was called for examination in that city on Tuesday: On the opening of the case. R. H. Dana, Jr., Esq., United States Attorney, stated to the Commissioner that he had been unable to attend the examination hitherto, but had made a careful examination of the testimony, and, on conference with his associate, had come to the conclusion that there was not evidence sufficient to justify the committal of the defendants. That t
ek after. In his escape, he was accompanied by Mr. J. A. Toole, of the 9th Virginia cavalry. The first point reached by them after making land, was Georgetown, Delaware. They passed through several other towns in the same State, but cautiously refrained from making known their situations.--When they arrived in Kent county, Maryland, they disclosed the fact that they were refugees from Fort Delaware, and found plenty of friends and sympathizers. Mr. Cox says that on the night of the 3d of July the Secessionists of Middletown, Del., hoisted a Confederate flag on a pole which had been erected by the Unionists, and that early on the morning of the 4th the "Stars and Bars" were saluted with forty rounds by the supporters of the Abolition Government. When they discovered their mistake they were so enraged that they immediately hauled down the flag and tore it into shreds, and vigorously applied themselves to washing the pole with soap and water to cleanse it from the polluting effec

The London Times, of Friday, published a third edition, containing the following canard: "Baltimore, July 3.--A communication from Fortress Monroe, dated the 2d, states that Generals Gorman and Meade had arrived there wounded.--They state that the divisions of Generals McCati and Reynolds had surrendered to the Confederate. "General McClellan was on board the Galena.--General Jackson was in the rear of the Federal, and Price in front. General Lee refuses to grant any terms of capitulation, and demands their unconditional surrender. The Federal flags have been taken down from the newspaper o

Captain Mirehouse, of the steamship Etna, for bade the celebration of the Fourth of July by the loyal Americans on board that vessel, on her last outward trip, and his conduct is justified by Mr. John. G. Dale, agent of the line, who says that Captain Mirehouse had quite a number of persons from New Orleans among his passengers, who called on him on the 3d of July and informed him that if any celebration was attempted the next day it would be interfered with by them, and that a disturbance would likely take place. Accordingly, with the advice of most of the cabin passengers. Captain Mirehouse decided to have no active celebration.--It is rather singular that a few passengers should be allowed to dictate to the Captain, and prevent the other passengers from celebrating the Fourth of July in a patriotic manner.--Phil.
