ay, looking on through their eye glasses, and much enjoying the sport. The capitulation came in due time and all was over; but — and this is the wondering part of the business--not one man was killed on either side. The whole affairs might have been got up in the same style at the Surrey Zoological Gardens. We seriously advise the caterers for popular amusement to take a lesson from Messrs. Anderson and Beauregard. Acrobats are sometimes killed at the Alhambra, a man was eaten by a lion at Cooke's circus, but nobody was killed at Charleston! We are surprised that the exhibition did not end with a grand discharge of rockets. Governor Pickens in person setting light to the train, or with the sudden appearance of an illuminated temple with the words "Southern Confederation" blazoned on the pediment in colored lamps. If this capture of Fort Sumter is really to be styled fighting, then the Americans have added another to the many discoveries with which they have enlightened the world,
From Utam, Territory. --Advices from Salt Lake city to the 26th ult. state that the fall of Fort Sumter and the secession of Virginia had created intense interest among the "Saints. " The news was read in the tabernacle by Brigham Young, and the disciples were asked to believe that this was merely the prediction of Joe Smith about the breaking up of the American Union. Captain Gardner, of the army, left Fort Bridger about the middle of April, without orders and without handing in his resignation to Colonel Cooke, commanding the department of Utah. This step was supposed to be owing to the captain's secession proclivities. Lieut. Good, another United States officer, at Fort Crittenden, handed in his resignation, and five others were expected to do likewise. Gov. Cumming was to have left Utah on the 15th inst. for the banks of the Savannah, anticipating the arrival of his successor and the other new Territorial officers.
s of the advance of Confederate troops. an officer arrested for Treason. A Baltimore paper, of Friday last, says: John Timmes, Captain of Company B, 70th Regiment, Brooklyn, was placed under arrest yesterday, by order of Brigadier General Cooke, and is to be tried by court-martial, for uttering treasonable language at a parade of the 70th Regiment at East New York. On the 29th of May a disturbance was created among the German members, by Timmes' expressing sympathy with the Seturn home he was threatened with lynching if he continued his treasonable expressions; but this had no effect on Timmes. Yesterday Lieutenant Philip Schack, of Company D. 70th regiment, preferred a complaint against Captain Timmes before General Cooke, in which he is accused of using treasonable language, among other expressions saying that the first shot he fired would be to put a bullet through the head of Carl Schurz, and that if his regiment were ordered to the seat of war he would des
njured. As the enemy had on Friday made the buildings at the extremity of the wharf his line of sight upon the battery, I had all the furniture, &c., together with the weather boarding, conveyed to the rear of the battery, and in the course of the forenoon set fire to and blew up the platform and outer end of the bridge. I have spoken of Commander Thorburn's zeal in the first engagement, and cannot too highly applaud the spirit and alacrity, tempered by deference to orders, of Commander Cooke and Lieutenant Trobel. With the exception of Gunner's Mate Cunningham and Master's Mate Larmour, whose services were of inestimable value, our guns' crews consisted only of volunteer militia, who stood their ground bravely. We had yesterday, in addition to our guns, a small rifled one from Captain Walker's battery, under the immediate command of Lieutenant Robertson, of Tennessee, which rendered efficient service. In connection with the transportation of the Columbiads to the

Latest from the Potomac.--Running the Blockades. --From the Fredericksburg News, of Saturday evening last, we gather the following particulars of affairs transpiring along the Potomac: Small vessels continue to run the blockade daily. Three barges, with provisions for the army, arrived at Alexandria yesterday morning, in tow of a steam tug, having passed the batteries during the dark hours of the night before. One of the barges lost her deck load in Chesapeake bay, and one of the others lost also a portion of her cargo. They report that the Confederate batteries (Cooke's) sunk, day before yesterday, a large schooner which was "running the blockades."
hurry this Government and people into a precipitate resolution on so momentous a matter. But the question that lies before us, and one that presses for a speedy answer, is, whether it be right or not that we should, without delay, recognize the independence of the Southern Confederacy? We say without delay. That sooner or later it will have to be recognized is inevitable. The question is, whether it should not be done at once? We are left to our free choice in the matter. Wheaton, Cooke, Vattel and all international jurists, have clearly laid this down. Wheaton affirms that, in the case of the revolt of a province, of an empire or State, the first thing for foreign States to do is to allow belligerent rights to both parties in the conflict. In the next place, a foreign Government may, if it pleases, recognize the independence of the revolted people, or enter into treaties of commerce or amicable relations with it. The mere recognition cannot justly be regarded by the othe
