Serrell's statement in relation to his money was that it is his own property, and that he intended to start a brokerage and exchange business in Philadelphia. The bark Joseph Maxwell captured by the Sumter. Advices have been received in New York that the bark Joseph Maxwell, from Philadelphia for Laguayra, was captured by the Sumter on the 27th of July, off Porto Cabello. Lt. Hanks and five men were put aboard as a prize crew, and the Captain of the bark and a part of the crew taken aboard of the Sumter. The Maxwell was taken into Cienfuegos, but ordered out within twenty-four hours. In the meantime arrangements were made to run her ashore fifteen miles east of Cienfuegos, which was done, and her cargo taken to Cienfuegos and sold, and partly paid for.

The New York Herald has a characteristic article on the recent review of Hocker's army by King Abraham (Hanks) We give a portion of it: It appears that Mr. Lincoln and Mrs. Lincoln and Master Lincoln reviewed Hocker's army on the 8th inst. Our correspondent tells us that the President "was mounted upon a large bay. " that Mrs. Lincoln rode a carriage drawn by four spanking bays, " and that Master Lincoln "booted and sparred, rode bravely by the side of the President, followed by his dashing little orderly."

Yankee account of the late fight on the Techer. --Their Success--The New Orleans Era of the 19th gives the particulars of the recess of Gen. Hanks's Teche expedition. At Vermillion, on the 16th, the Confederates made a strong resistance, but finally retired, leaving in the enemy's hands a 32 pounder Parrott gun and a 12 pounder howitzer. The Yankees followed the retreating Confederates for two days, during which time they were in range of their guns. The Confederates than burnt at Franklin, La, their gunboats Hart and Diana, and their steamboats Gossamer and Newsboy, Louisa, Darby, Uncle Tommy' and Blue Hammock, and sunk the Cricket. The heaviest of the fighting took place at Irish Bend, three miles west of Franklin. The Era says: The 25th Con regiment was the first to engage the enemy. It the centre of the line of battle, having the 26th Maine on the right, and the 13th sotieut on the left, and supported by the 12th Maine. It was deployed as skirmish are on the

The New York Herald says the enemy progress slowly, but with a large force in Pennsylvania. Affairs at Harrisburg bear a most quiet aspect, though the country people, with droves of horses and cattle, are marching into the city in large numbers. Preparations for defence are going on rapidly. Gen. Kuips had evacuated Carlisle, but at last accounts the rebels had not occupied the town. Much perplexity exists as to the exact route the rebels have taken. Early's division is at Gettysburg, and Rodes's division is at Chambersburg. Gen. Milroy has been superceded by Col. Peirce. The Herald publishes very interesting news from Port Hudson. A second assault was made on Port
ssful warriors of the age in which he lives. Lincoln's religious Experience — Joe Miller has often wished that he was more devout. The members of the Baltimore (O. S.) Presbyterian Synod, now in session at Washington, called on Abraham (Hanks) Lincoln one morning last week. When he appeared Rev. Septimus Tustin, D. D., the Moderator, addressed him to the effect that the Synod had come to pay their respects and salutations; that "each member belonged to the Kingdom of God," and, what was of more importance to Hanks, that "each was loyal to the Government." We copy the following account of this touching interview from a Washington letter: The President in reply spoke as follows: "I can only say in this case, as in so many others, that I am profoundly grateful for the respect given in every variety of form in which it can be given from the religious bodies of the country. I saw, upon taking my position here, that I was going to have an Administration, if an Admini
