ry of Mr. Ely having been employed in ditching, or in any other menial employment, in entirely untrue. He has been uniformly well treated, and has fared sumptuously every day. Surgeon Norval, of the N. Y. 79th, brought a letter from him to President Lincoln. He says that a personal acquaintance with the Southern people has greatly modified his views in regard to them; and he suggests, in view of the thirteen hundred and fifty prisoners confined at Richmond, the propriety of adopting, in the fecor, Esq, of Brooklyn. Arrests are now made of individuals for uttering opinions hostile to the Government.--Several persons have hurried from the city for fear of arrest, and the conspiracy law may be considered in full forces. Mrs. Abraham Lincoln, having arrived in this city, yesterday paid a visit to the Princess Clotilde, in her private apartments at the New York Hotel. The reception was a most cordial and friendly one. Fort Lafayette received yesterday another tenant

Ely, McGraw and others. No non-combatants are prisoners. Quartermaster Melggs has gone to New York, to investigate clothing contracts. The Contract Committee are making astonishing discoveries. The Pawnee exchanged a few harmless shots this forenoon at Aquia Creek. President Lincoln has issued a proclamation declaring all commercial intercourse with the seceded States unlawful. Goods going to or coming from them, either by land or water, without Secretary Chase's special permit, will be forfeited, and vessels or vehicles conveying the same will also be forfeited, and all persons engaged will be arrested, and travel from North to South is interdicted. From and after fifteen days from the publication of the proclamation, all vessels or ships, belonging in whole or
es, and we have every reason to believe that Ministers will have, in the enforcement of this policy, the hearty co-operation of the French Government. Less than this cannot be expected from the Government of States who lead the maritime commerce of the world, and are bound to see that no impediment shall be cast in the way of the operations of that commerce, except such as is natural to a state of war, and sanctioned by the usages of nations. If the naval resources at the disposal of Mr. Lincoln and his colleagues enable them to establish and maintain an effective blockade along the vast seaboard of the seceding States, well. No foreign flag has a right to break such blockade, and no such violation of a recognized right will be sanctioned by the European powers and especially by England and France. But if it shall appear that the Southern coast is not effectively blockaded, but that, nevertheless, seizures are made on the high seas of British or French vessels and their cargoes

But if Congress votes large sums, and the Executive spends them, the Northerners will certainly want something for their money.--President Lincoln and General Scott will be expected to prosecute the war vigorously, and, if report is to be believed, the hour of action was approaching. The march and victuild it. Another cites the firing of the first gun by the South, forgetting that that gun was not fired until an armed squadron left New York harbor, after Mr. Lincoln's express declaration that he would collect the revenue in the South and retake the forts, arsenals, &c. A man does not usually wait until the blow descends, ifhe guilt of slavery," and the doctrine of self-government and secession would have allowed them to obey these dictates of conscience without bloodshed. But Mr. Lincoln also aims to protect, as he terms them, "the majority of Union men" in the South--a solicitude which reminds us strongly of that displayed by the Emperor of Aus

of horror unequalled by those of the French Revolution. The Administration, therefore, decided, as I have said, not to hang any of the pirates. But within a day or two the question has been again raised in the Cabinet. At least one member of that body is in favor, as he expresses it, of discarding all squeamish nonsense, and of hanging every rebel found in arms against the Government, whether taken on the sea or land! This is undoubtedly the course that ought to be taken, if the Government regards this matter as simply an insurrection. This is the view taken of it by President Lincoln; and he, too, although he deplores the necessity of such dreadful measures, is in favor of such a course as will show to the world that we are in earnest in this matter, and that traitors found in arms against the Government must expect and receive a traitor's doom. Mr. Bates and Mr. Blair both go for extreme measures, regardless of consequences; and Mr. Smith also entertains the same views.
Peace papers --The Journal of Commerce says that the Day Book's list of Peace papers, with its own additions, makes no less than one hundred and fifty-two journals in the North opposed to the war. It is all folly for the Republican papers to insist that this is not evidence of public opinion. These journals have readers and subscribers that approve of their sentiments, and their number in the aggregate would make a larger army than Lincoln will ever get together.--New York Day Book.
The blockade. The Lincoln Government will not be permitted to say what articles shall and what shall not be exempted from the operation of the blockade which it has established. They have discovered, it seems, that the blockade is injuring themselves more than us, and are endeavoring to lighten the burthens of the war to the Western farmers, by permitting them to bring their productions, which they cannot sell and which bid fair to rot on their hands into competition with those of our own agriculturists. They are cunningly seeking to draw the money from the South to enable them to carry on the war against her. We take it for granted that the Southern Government and people will at once put a veto on that proceeding. We have furnished the North already, in times that have gone by, the means which they are now using for our subjugation, and it can scarcely be expected that in an actual state of war, we shall permit them to levy the ways and means for our extermination from our o
y who had been in the battle of Manassas, make statements respecting the South and Beauregard's army such as he dared not utter. To their credit be it said they are telling the truth and exercising a salutary influence.--Statements were made in public places in Baltimore by returned soldiers such as the following: "The Southerners are better armed, better equipped better officered, and animated with better sentiments than we are — they are unconquerable." We learn from the same source Lincoln has succeeded in getting one hundred and fifty millions of his loan taken, or rather proposals have been made to that extent, by the Banks of Boston, Philadelphia, and New York, the same being payable in quarterly instalments — say fifty millions every three months, in the currency of the Banks, they taking Treasury notes as security at the rate of seven and three-tenths. The Banks expect to have the first payment returned to them in deposits before the second is due, and this arrangem
Promotion. --Colonel Pickett, of Tennessee, has been promoted to the position of Adjutant General, in the regular Confederate service, of the division commanded by General Lee, now operating in Northwestern Virginia. Col. Pickett, it will be remembered, after a brilliant campaign last summer through the Northern States, advocating the election of Bell, was one of the first, after the election of Lincoln, to declare in favor of immediate secession, sustaining his position in the Tennessee Legislature by a series of arguments which added to his reputation as one among the most gifted of Tennessee's gifted young statement. Joined to his native talents, Col. Pickett has had experience also as a military commander, and will make an accomplished officer.
