.--The ambulances are made of hickory and ash, and are the most complete things of the kind we have ever seen. Each ambulance is made to contain two persons, with a partition running lengthwise to keep them separate.--A lattice litter with folding legs and head piece, with rollers under it, is made to fit either side. They have only two wheels with four springs, two on each side of the axle — and are very light, and durable. On the foot-piece of one is marked the maker's name, "Kimball & Clement, Portland, Maine," and on the other side "3d Reg. Me. Volls." The other is marked on the side, in large letters, "U. S." The top is made very much like a jersey wagon, with oil cloth cover coming down to the body, making them perfectly secure from the weather. The Surgeon wagon is something really unique. At the front and rear it has staples in which to put the flag. The entrance is from behind, with steps similar to our hotel omnibuses. On either side are cushioned seats, covered wi

onsistent and manly. The reader will be struck with the brave and telling speech of Mr. James Brooks, who entitles himself to our admiration. The resolutions and the abstracts of the speeches follow: Resolved, That we reiterate our opposition to this bloody, relentless, unnecessary, and fruitless war. In our opinion it is time that the whole American people North and South should demand of their rulers its immediate discontinuance. Resolved, That the arrest and detention of the Hon. Clement L Vallandigham, of Ohio, upon a military order, as a punishment for the exercise of the right of free speech in popular discussion (which is no offence under the laws of the land) is another step toward absolute despotism. We denounce this act, by whomsoever authorized or instigated, as a crime against the people of all the States. To resist aggression less odious, our revolutionary fathers, of every colony on the continent, made common cause, and we, men of New York, sympathizing wit

ing people, and by permitting such assumption of power we cease to govern ourselves, and become the subjects of a military despotism. That in our opinion the proclamation of freedom to slaves by the President of the United States, the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, the arbitrary arrest and incarceration of citizens, the suspension of several newspapers, and the detail of mail transmission to others, the military arrest, trial by Court Martial, and banishment from his State of Clement L Vallandigham, and all similar acts, are direct violations of the Constitution of the United States, and are without authority or justification, having no validity except such as they derive from the temporary support of military force without law.
