e Conscript law so as to embrace only the men between eighteen and forty, it can bring seven hundred thousand soldiers in the field, who, fighting on their own soil, ought to be equal to at least a million and a half of invaders.--When we remember what the South has already accomplished with small armies against superior odds, have we not every reason for confidence in the future, if the Confederate Government, as we believe it will, shall cause the Conscript law to be thoroughly executed. Bennett confessed that the North has not as yet made an impression upon any vital point of the South, and, in our opinion, she will not be able to make greater exertions in the future than the past, unless we encourage her by relaxing our energies and supinely resting on our laurels. The whole world, outside of the limits of the United States, sees and declares the impracticability of the conquest of the South, and yet the besotted Yankee Government obstinately persists in this most wicked and mos

Inquest. --Coroner Sanxay yesterday held an inquest on 8th street, over the body of Patrick Gerney, the lad who was so badly wounded on Saturday evening, by a ball shot across the at a lot of wild ducks sailing on its surface, by some person unknown. The hall, as heretofore said, passed through the lad's body, and he lingered in great agony from the time he was wounded until late Tuesday night, when he breathen his last. The jurors, after examining a number of witnesses, and otherwise inquiring into the circumstances attending the case, returned a verdict that he "came to his death by a gun shot wound, fired by some member of Company D. City Battalion, unknown to them, from the front of Bennett's warehouse, south-side of the basin and 9th street."

Arrested for forgery --A man representing himself as Capt. J. M. Becuett, of Co. E, 4th Va. Regt. presented to the Confederate States Paymaster in Richmond, on Thursday, a pay roll for $1,074 66 for services rendered whose liquidation he asked. The name of W. H. Taylor, Adjutant General of the army in front of Fredericksburg, signed to the document, was pronounced by the Paymaster to be a forgery, and thereupon the party presenting the pay-roll was lodged in Castle Lightning, in charge of Capt. Booker. It is thought that there is a Captain Bennett attached to the 4th regiment, but the Paymaster did not believe that the individual who presented the pay-roll was the same man. The furlongs of the latter, purporting to be from Gen. Lee, was ascertained to be a forgery.
Progress of the war. The Herald on Abraham Lincoln as a Dictator — Bennett on his Knees to the future Ozar of the United States. The New York Herald, of the 27th, has the following article on Abraham's prospects for the Dictatorship of the United States: The important measures which have lately passed, and others which are now under consideration in the two houses of Congress, will leave no excuse for a failure on the part of the present Administration to put an end to the rebellion. With the closing of the present session President Lincoln will be practically invested with the powers of a Dictator. The scope of his authority and discretion as President of the United States will hardly be less than that of Louis Napoleon as Emperor of France. Our whole political system of the peace establishment — including the subordination of the Federal Government to the will of the States and the people — will be reversed; for the States and the people will be rendered subordinate <

He had a black frock coat and silk hat, all the other clothes being Osnaburgs. The above reward will be paid for his delivery to any jail where I can get him. Address.

oint, and we shall be distressed till we know whether he did or not condescend to accept the incense offered at such a shrine. Every one knows, or ought to know, that the Herald of New York, is, like the-Herald of London, the organ or the aristocracy, learning and moral worth of the country, and that its correspondents are gentlemen of social, intellectual and personal importance! Every one knows that the editor of the Herald has never been kicked, catted and horse whipped, has never levied black mail, never hired out his columns to any and every imaginable base and beastly purpose! Of course his correspondents are not mere literary lazzaroni and vagabonds, whom no gentleman would delile his shoe leather by kicking out of his way.--To make one's self "agreeable" to such magnificent creatures must be glory enough for one life time. Oh, penny a-liner, living in a garret on the cold moats of Bennett's table, how to tally thou lockest down from thy airy perch on the rest of mankind!

The Herald on the Signs of the times. Under the above caption the New York Herald, of the 6th, has one of its characteristic articles on the present aspect of affairs at the North. If we can believe Bennett, a powerful reaction is taking place in Yankeedom on the subject of the war. At the present moment all looks confused because the public mind is in a transition state, but order will soon come out of the political chaos, "and the counter revolution will stand triumphant and acknowledged by all." "The ball is fairly set in motion in this State," he goes on to proclaim, "and any violent opposition to it will only serve to demonstrate the impetus it has received. The peace men, being a majority of the Democratic party, will claim the right to shape its policy, and, for the sake of harmony, and in order to oust the Republicans from office, the minority will acquiesce, and the same will take place in every other State, for like causes will produce like effects, to say nothi
cutting it off. To characterize this dead as infernal, were to use too mild a term for the occasion. It was more horrible than that perpetrated by Pelissier, when he smoked 500 Arabs — men, women, and children — to death in a cave. It cannot be that God will smile on a cause upheld by such horrible atrocities. It makes our blood curdle to think of them. Lincoln, it seems, is determined to run again, and the New York Herald is determined to support him. There is a baseness about old Bennett that exceeds the aggregate badness of the whole universe. He pretends to be a conservative and supports Lincoln. --He pretends to hate the Abolition party, and he recommends the Abolition chief as the only person fit to rule Yankeedom. The European news is unimportant. There appears not the feeblest symptom of recognition. Mr. Hopp publishes a card in the London Times, saying that he would not have offered his resolutions at the Sheffield meeting, had be not thought that the separat
