t. We will here remark that these raiders told Mr. Derby that they were not out on a fighting excursion.--that such was not their business, though if necessary they would engage in it. Their sale object, they said, I was to destroy railroads, &c., &c. They reached Jarratt's about 6 o'clock Monday evening in a great hurry, burnt the water tank, tore up the railroad for about a mile, and cut the telegraph wire. They remained there but a short time, and then put off at full speed towards Freeman's bridge, over Nottoway river, in Sussex, where they arrived about two hours before day Tuesday. The bridge had been destroyed by our people, and the raiders crossed over on logs overlaid with fence rails. They then made a circuit and struck the Jerusalem plank road, which they kept until they got within fourteen miles of Petersburg, where they turned off to the right, and reached Mount Sinal Church Tuesday evening at 5 o'clock, where they halted. They were fired on near the church by so

sage took a pilot and came into Cherbourg, arriving here about two o'clock, without, it is believed, any serious damages, although it will require her some two works probably to repair. Capt. Winslow, giving as a reason that he had no room to keep them in, immediately paroled the prisoners--five officers and sixty-two men — and they went on shore. The officers thus paroled were Surgeon Gulf, formerly of the United States Navy. Third Lieutenant Wilson, Third Engineer Pandt, Chief Engineer Freeman, and the boatswale. Several other officers, whose names I have not yet been able to ascertain, were picked up by French boats. It is doubtful whether the action of Capt. Winslow, in paroling the prisoners, will meet with the approbation of the Government. It is equivalent, so far as his act can make it to the recognition of the "belligerent rights" of this British pirate, who has never yet entered a rebel port. It may have the effect to seriously complicate the question of cl
criminal," (I quote from the decision), to await the action of the grand jury. But as one grand jury has already refused to act in the premises, what will his Honor do if that refusal shall be persisted in? The publication of the Evening Bulletin newspaper, of Baltimore, was suppressed, late on Saturday evening, by order of General Wallace, commanding the Middle Department, in consequence of the publication in the second edition of two objectionable articles copied from the New York Freeman's Journal. The office was closed, and any further attempt to publish the paper will subject the publishers to arrest and the office to seizure. A number of citizens of the State of Delaware, who were arrested a few days ago and sent to Fort McHenry, near Baltimore, upon the charge of holding a picnic for the benefit of the Confederate prisoners at Fort Delaware, were released on parole last Saturday. Upon their return to Wilmington more than two thousand citizens turned out and gave t
The cost of living in New York. --A great dear is said, says the New York Freeman's Journal, about the high price of every article now required in a family for living. The consumer is paying an enormous price for everything. Why is it? Is it because all these articles have increased in value, or is it owing to the depreciation of currency? Some statistics which we find in the Albany Argus have a bearing upon the question. A pound of tea, valued at fifty cents on the wharf in New York, will cost thus: tea50 duty20 exchange, 19045 gold to pay (at 173)15 total$1.30 tea and duty70 Extra paid for inflation60 a pound of cloves, costing twelve cents to land at New York, will cost the importer, besides port charges: Cloves12 Duty15 Exchange10.80 Gold for duty11.25 Per pound49 Thus it is that the prices of imported goods have been increased from fifty to one hundred per centum beyond the cost and duty by reason of the inflation. The war is co
From Memphis, Etc. Mobile, September 5. --A special dispatch to the Register, from Senatobia to-day, says: Scouts report the capture of Duvall's Bluff, Arkansas, with two gunboats and seven transports. General Grierson, with cavalry and artillery, has gone across the river from Memphis. Twelve transports loaded with troops passed down the river from Memphis Friday night. Their supposed destination is White rivers. The circulation in Memphis of the Metropolitan Record Freeman's Journal and Chicago. Times has been prohibited. Nothing new below. Three Yankee vessels are off Dog River bar.
Additional from the North. Northern papers of the 13th instant contain no intelligence of importance. The New York Freeman's Journal and News repudiate McClellan, and so does John Mullaby, editor of the Metropolitan Record, in a long letter reviewing his former acts of tyranny. Mr. Vallandigham was at Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday, on his way to canvass the State of Pennsylvania, when he was met by McClellan's letter of acceptance. He at once directed the Democratic State Committee to withdraw his name from all appointments, and returned to his home. The Washington correspondent of the Tribune says: Vallandigham immediately after reading McClellan's letter, telegraphed to a political friend here, "All hope is lost," and withdrew his name from the canvass. General Cass repudiates the Chicago platform as "an ingenious surrender to the rebels. " There is no war news. Stanton telegraphs that Wilson and Steadman will keep General Wheeler too busy to interfere
ut one hundred men of Kershaw's division, which has been mentioned.] The Peace Democrats of New York city held a meeting at the Saint Nicholas Hotel on Saturday to take action upon General McClellan's letter, and to consult upon the best means of organizing a peace party, and of selecting a peace candidate for the Presidency. The meeting was called to order by Mr. Mullaby, editor of the Metropolitan Record, who was then chosen President. The Day Book, the News (through Ben Wood), the Freeman's Journal, were all represented. Bitter feelings against McClellan were openly manifested, and he was denounced for having broken his pledge to the Democratic party. Messrs. Shell, Singleton and Chauncey Burr were among the prominent speakers. S. T. Lent, of New York, presented the following resolution as the sense of all those present: Resolved, That the call be addressed to the Jeffersonian Democrats to meet at Cincinnati, Ohio, in the course of the present month, for the purpose o
