Brig. Gen. Beauregard. Thos. Jordan, A. A. Adj't Gen. At Dover, Delaware, a meeting was held at which resolutions were adopted advocating the recognition of the Southern Confederacy, if a reconciliation by peaceable means should become impossible. The assembly was addressed by Thomas F. Bayard, William G. Whitely, and ex-Governor Temple, and others.--(Doc. 60.) --the Camp record, a folio newspaper, was issued yesterday from the camp at Hagerstown, Md., by a party of printers belonging to the Wisconsin Regiment. The object announced is to meet a want by supplying a convenient medium of communicating to friends at home all matters pertaining to the little world of the 6th Brigade; but another reason may fairly be supposed, and that is the irrepressible impulse in the breast

for making war on the French; and he was fortunately led by Col. Peter Schuyler in all his military undertakings. The Assembly of Connecticut denied his right to control their militia; and late in the autumn of 1693 he went to Hartford with Colonel Bayard and others from New York, and in the presence of the train-bands of that city, commanded by Captain Wadsworth, he directed (so says tradition) his commission to be read. Bayard began to read, when Wadsworth ordered the drums to be beaten. SBayard began to read, when Wadsworth ordered the drums to be beaten. Silence! said Fletcher, angrily. When the reading was again begun, Drum! Drum! cried Wadsworth. Silence! again shouted Fletcher, and threatened the captain with punishment. Wadsworth stepped in front of the governor, and, with his hand on the hilt of his sword, he said: If my drummers are again interrupted, I'll make sunlight shine through you. We deny and defy your authority. The cowed governor sullenly folded the paper, and with his retinue returned to New York. With a pretended zeal

closely at one o'clock in the morning (Aug. 29), and Porter (whom he believed to be at the Junction) to move upon Centreville at dawn. Before these movements could be executed, Longstreet and Jackson had formed a partial junction. Near the entrance to Thoroughfare Gap, through which Longstreet had marched, there was Soldiers' monument at Groveton. a sharp engagement, which ended at twilight. Longstreet was held in check for a while by Ricketts's division, and the cavalry of Buford and Bayard, which had fought the battle. Early the next morning (Aug. 29), Ricketts fled to Gainesville, closely pursued. Pope's army was now scattered and somewhat confused. Lee's whole army, now combined, pressed forward. Pope ordered Sigel, supported by Reynolds, to advance from Groveton and attack Jackson on wooded heights near. He ordered Heintzelman, with the divisions of Hooker and Kearny, towards Gainesville, to be followed by Reno, while Porter, with his own corps and King's division, was

basis of claims subsequently made upon, and settled by, France and Naples. The only country in Europe into whose ports American vessels might enter with safety was Russia. The War of 1812-15 wiped out all American claims for commercial spoliations against England. Those against France, Spain, Holland, Naples, and Denmark remained to be settled. Gallatin, at Paris, and Eustis, at The Hague, were instructed to press the subject. William Pinkney, former ambassador at London, appointed in Bayard's place as minister to Russia, was also commissioned to take Naples in his way, and to ask payment for American vessels and cargoes formerly confiscated by Murat, the Napoleonic sovereign. The restored Bourbon government demurred. The demand, they said, had never been pressed upon Murat himself, and they disclaimed any responsibility for the acts of one whom they regarded as a usurper, by whom they had suffered more than had the Americans. Notwithstanding an American ship-of-war—the Washi

eting the same day to act on the appointments of the new Administration, remained in session till late in the month. Sumner was at the time mentioned for the English mission, and Governor Andrew and other persons of influence desired his appointment; but he put aside the suggestion peremptorily, preferring his place in the Senate to any other. The Senate listened to the disunion speeches of Clingman, Wigfall, Mason, and Breckinridge, and to speeches hardly less mischievous from Douglas and Bayard. Douglas was bitter in the extreme towards Wilson, Fessenden, and Hale; and Wilson in a brief reply justly called his speech mischievous, wicked, and unpatriotic. This was the last of his career, as he died a few weeks after the session closed. The Republicans generally kept silent in the debate. They were now in a majority by the withdrawal of senators from the seceded States, and entitled to the chairmanship of the committees and a majority of members of each committee. It fell to Bri
