From Washington. Washington, July 27. --Two Federal pickets were shot within two miles of Alexandria this day. A company of Southern cavalry have approached within three miles of Arlington. The correspondence called for by Congress has been refused by President Lincoln, as incompatible with the public safely. The House to day passed the Senate bill appropriating $2,000,000 to transport army materials to "loyal" (traitors) citizens in the Seceded States. [Second Dispatch.] Washington, July 28. --Gen. Cadwallader supersedes Gen. Mansfield, and Gen. Runyar retires. Gen. Dix has issued a pathetic appeal to the people of Baltimore to stand by the Union. A number of the National Guard have consented to remain in the service until Wednesday.
How the Lincoln despotism is represented abroad. --Mr. Adams, Lincoln's new Minister to England, is said to have gone to Court in a dark blue coat, the collar, cuffs and flaps embroidered with gold, white small clothes, white silk stockings, low shoes, and to have carried a sword.
our Generals — namely, the taking of Washington city and the capture of Fortress Monroe. Success in the first project would utterly demoralize and discredit the Lincoln Government. They may flee and make their headquarters in some securer place; they may save themselves harmless by flight, and continue to carry on all the operate the war. But it would not be more decisive in a political point of view than the capture of Fortress Monroe would be in a material one. The first would destroy Lincoln's Government; the other would destroy his blockade, bring into existence a large Southern Navy with myriads of privateers, and sweep his commerce from the seas. nervous; and even if there were little probability of success, the investment should be made. Any serious cannonading along those lines will stampedes the whole Lincoln fraternity from the city, and the chief object of taking the city would thus be accomplished by an attempt amounting to little more than a feint. The overthr
an army of raw troops is peculiarly exposed.--The disastrous panic which turned our victory into a retreat and the retreat into a rout, was a danger to which the enemy was as much exposed as we, but which fell to our bitter lot, apparently from circumstances which our General in command could not control. It is well known that the Abolitionists of this State goaded Charles Sumner into making the speech which preceded the Brooks difficulty. It is now known that Gen. Greeley goaded Abraham Lincoln into the unfortunate advance upon Richmond. Corporal Raymond, too, has done his part. And the New York World has not been behind its contemporaries in urging the citizen army into the Bull Run Trap. Will the people follow these cowards, who are sacrificing the national army for the sake of the sectional party? In future, let us follow Gen. Scott. Is it not time for Gen. Schenck to retire?--Have we not had just enough of him? Why not give him a post-office in a small town anywh
The feeling in New York. --The New York Day Book, of Tuesday afternoon, contains the following items: A man was at the barracks in the Park yesterday, charged with desertion. When asked why he deserted, he replied: "I learned that since I left for the war, that my two children had been sent to the Almshouse, and my wife turned a beggar in the street. I deserted to rescue them. Do your worst with me." A hard working mechanic of this city recently asked a prominent Republican politician: " What have we working men got by voting for Lincoln? We are totally ruined, and there is nothing left for us but to leave our families to starve, and go to the war to be shot like dogs. "
The Daily Dispatch: July 30, 1861., [Electronic resource], Purchase of a steel-clad frigate in France. (search)
Purchase of a steel-clad frigate in France. --The Paris correspondent of the New York News announces that the Confederate Commissioners had succeeded in purchasing the first-class steel-clad frigate in France for their Government Hurry it over the big pond, Messrs. Commissioners, and let it play havoc with Dr. Lincoln's blockaders.
ly a necessity for the South to maintain its perfect equality in the Union, or else break the said Union. "Fabricious" states the present issue with perfect accuracy; and I adopt it without altering a word: "The simple principle involved in Lincoln's election was this --Shall the Territories not yet admitted as States into the Union be preserved free from the state of slavery, or shall the slaveholders be at liberty to drive their slaves there, as they would their cattle, and make them slave States?"--Precisely so; there are vast territories for settlement, belonging equally to all the citizens of the late Confederacy; and the election of Lincoln affirms the principle that Northern men may go in there with their property and settle, but that Southern men may not. It involves the "principle" that negro slavery is a stain, and slaveholders sinners, or rather indeed a species of lepers --not to be meddled with where they are, (being incurable,) but to be inclosed within a ring fenc
South Carolina and Virginia. --That competent artist, Mr. A Grineyald, has left at our office a banner which he painted some months ago, intended for a Virginia military company, and which is very appropriate for the present time. It is a union of South Carolina and Virginia. A large Palmetto occupies the centre, on the right of which South Carolina is represented with the great staple, cotton; on the left is Virginia, with her great staple, tobacco. Virginia is represented treading on Lincoln, while a rattlesnake which is coiled round the Palmetto is shaking his rattles in the despot's face. --Charleston Mercury.
From Missouri — the lowa Democracy. St Louis, July 27 --Several of the papers of this city this morning have notified property-holders on the lines of railroads that they will be assessed for injuries unless they fight the bridge burners or track destroyers or give information of hostile designs. The Southerners are gathering in force in Southern Missouri. The Iowa Democratic Convention have declared that the "irrepressible conflict" doctrines of Lincoln and Seward are the causes of the present war, and they pledge to the Federal Government the support of the Democracy of Iowa in all legitimate ways calculated to settle existing difficulties.
