h ult., has an interesting letter from Cassville, Mo., in which occurs the following paragraph showing the manner in which the passage of the Secession Ordinance of Missouri was received by the people: In the evening it was announced to the camp and surrounding country by the firing of cannon that sent their hoarse voices to the distance of forty-five miles echoing and reechoing among the thousand hills and valleys of the Southwest. The shouts of the soldiers rent the heavens, and volleys of small arms accompanying the roar of the cannon fully testified to the joy with which they received the glad news. The excitement was intense, and in the evening many a good fellow through himself insensible into the arms of Bacchus, as if the State had received all her good from that Deity. The number was rather too great for the protector of the vine to accommodated and not a few lingered around old houses and fields, and road-side ditches, as if they were charming places to them.

"Wake up the wrong Passenger." --This homely, but often exceedingly apposite proverb, was humorously illustrated yesterday. It seems that the day before a negro stumbled unconsciously in the Provost Marshal's office with an order from the Exchange Hotel for a bottle of champagne, bearing a capable carpet-bag in which the sparkling Heidrick was to be carried to the expectant disciple of the rosy god, Bacchus. Both the order and the carpet-bag were intended for a restaurant on Franklin street, not far from the Marshal's office. The consequence was, that the negro, order and carpet-bag were taken possession of by the Marshal. He took up his residence, mush against his will, in Castle Godwin, and yesterday three barrels of whiskey and a tierce of wine were seized and sent to the general reception room of the Provost Marshal.

Drunk. --George Ward, a white man, was carried before the Head of Police yesterday, charged with being in the street in a drunken condition. George attempted to excuse himself by saying that he was not the only one that might have been found at large in the peculiar predicament referred to. To this the sitting Magistrate demurred with a frown of virtuous indignation. He was sure that his police were vigilant, and had gathered in all the scattered remnants of humanity liable to the charge of being corned. The defendant had evidently seen double. Being a soldier, he took pleasure in easing his own conscience of the offence of interfering with the military arm by transferring Ward to the custody of the Provost Marshal, to be dealt with as circumstances might seem to require. The "devotee of Bacchus" was sent under guard in search of the functionary last alluded to.
