of this sort would greatly relieve the Surgeon-in-chief, whose labors (to judge from those of our indefatigable head Surgeon here) are multiplied and oppressive to the last degree. That these duties could not be better met and discharged, as far as the possibilities of human endurance goes, than they are by Surgeon Cabell, will be cheerfully testified to by all who know. T. D.

The bogus Government in Missouri. The New York Times, one of the leading Abolition journals of the North, is greatly chagrined at the proclamation of 'Governor' Gamble, of Missouri. We copy from that paper of August 7th: We felt much cheered, a few days ago, in announcing that the Missouri State Convention had deposed the traitor Governor, Jackson, and the seditions General Assembly of that State. The offence of the Legislature was that I had passed an unconstitutional military bill, putting the militia of the State in the hands of the traitor Governor, and compelling them to swear realty to that Governor, instead of to the Constitution of the United States. The offence of the Governor was that he had openly conspired with armed enemies of the United States, and was using the militia and the treasure of the State in trying to withdraw Missouri from the Union. And further, that in the violent effort accomplish this revolution, he had been driven from the State and compel
The British press on the battle of Manassas.Lord Palmerstons Views on the blockade. [From the London Times August 7th] "The dissensions which arose some months ago in the United States of North America have unfortunately assumed the character of open war" Such is the tranquil comment of the royal speech upon the events in the New World which have fallen so unexpectedly upon the ear of Europe. Our Queen has reflected with an excellent fidelity the feelings of her people. After the first surprise was over, and when the "God bless me! you don't say so?" had been said, we think we never heard of a battle in which 75,000 men seem to have been engaged on each side, and which fell so blank upon the public ear, and engaged so little European interest. The fact is, that we do not like to laugh, and the sense of the ridiculous comes too strong over us when we would be serious. It is a great battle without the dignity of danger or the painful interest of great carnage. There are
Latest war movements.Northern accounts. From late Northern papers received at this office we make up the following summary of news: Official information relative to the Privateer Sumter. Washington, August 23. --The State Department has received a letter from the United States Consul at Curacoa, dated August 7th, in which he says that, according to the statement of the runaway seaman, an Englishman named Old, from the Privateer Sumter, she was not allowed to enter the port of Ciennuegos de Cuba, but was ordered to anchor below the fort. Her prizes, however, six in number, went into the port. The Sumter, after coaling, proceeded to see immediately, supposing some of our men-of-war were in pursuit of her. She subsequently captured two American vessels, both loaded with provisions. One of them, named Jos. Maxwell, off Puerto Cabello. She was seen on the 21 instant in the vicinity of Mattanani, on the coast of Venezuela, proceeding to the windward, and it was sup
soon acknowledge us. Morris Seligman. As we have said before, the very important question arises whether the allegations of this letter are true; because, if they are, no doubt whatever remains that Lord Lyons and Mr. Russell are both with the South and against the North in this war. The letter is dated August 3. Muir was arrested in Jersey City, August 14, and Mr. Seligman's letter was at that time in his possession. Mr. Russell's letter was published in the London Times of August 7, and did not reach this city until the 19th--five days after Mr. Seligman's letter was seized. It answers fully and emphatically to Mr. Seligman's description, when he says that "it disposes of the Yankees." But this is a general commentary, and easily complied with. There is a much more important and, at the same time, minute particular in which it verifies the statement of Mr. Seligman. In that letter, speaking of Mr. Jefferson Davis. Mr. Russell says: "He has already proved that he ha
