es of Fort Wagner, where Shaw lies buried "under his niggers," as the brutal ruffians reported. The Pennsylvania Fifty-second formed the rest of the forces of occupation. Soon the Star-Spangled Banner floated from the top of the custom-house, the citadel and the arsenal — waving for the first time here over free soil and a people free. All the public buildings were immediately taken possession of, and detachments stationed to guard them. The negro Provost-Guard. Lieutenant-Colonel Bennett is Provost-Marshal, and Major Willoughby Assistant Provost-Marshal. Two companies of the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts are doing provost-marshal duty. At every public building the tidy negro sentinels can be seen halting citizens, ordering them back, or examining their passes. They are well-behaved gentlemen, and contrast very favorably with some of the rebel citizens. I heard of one citizen, a woman, who complained of them as insolent. "Insolence" of the Colored troops. "

There is no prospect of an armistice even, as far as we can see, between the belligerent forces. One of the New York journals claims, indeed, that the Herald has suffered-severe punishment, and is, financially, much damaged. From this account, we should judge that the opposite party had got Mr. Bennett's venerable head in chancery, and had considerably spoiled its proverbial beauty. We are disposed, however, to receive this statement with some doubt.--There is a good deal of vitality in the New York Herald, and no contest with so long and heavy a purse can be short, sharp, and decisive.

It is a pity they cannot be sent back to their constituencies to find out the change that has taken place. A year or so, however, is not long in the life of a nation, and the time will soon come round when they will be taught an impressive lesson.
