blished shortly after the battle of Manassas Plains, on the 21st of July, "at 37 Park Row, room 24," in the late "commercial metropolis." We insert it to gratify a curiosity natural among our readers to know something of the antecedents of those who came to aid in depriving them of their liberty. It seems a little strange that the biographer of the Colonel should give him credit for the possession of sentiments in favor of liberty which his course as a follower of that pestiferous hog, Abraham Lincoln, does not justify. As will be seen, the "life" is written so as to fit the subject living or dead. It starts off with the assertion that he has been "brutally slain," and ends with the expression of a determination to rescue him "if living," or avenge him "if dead." Corcoran will in his retirement be as much amused at perusing a "life" only (apparently) half ended as the public at large: Col. Michael Corcoran, The heroic commander of the Sixty-ninth Regiment, whose fate is shr

A committee of wealthy and influential men from Boston, New York and Philadelphia have left to-day for Washington, and will demand of President Lincoln that several highly important changes shall be made before any more of the sinews of war will be forthcoming. They have determined thatt." A few days previous this interesting sheet was clamorous for the ousting of two or three of Lincoln's Cabinet. The following paragraph is from the same paper: So long as Gen. Banks remainet among these prisoners are about 60 officers. Capt. Todd, said to be a brother-in-law to President Lincoln, is in charge of the prisoners, and they allege that he is very harsh and unaccommodating;ce of public denunciations of the motives and measures of the President and his advisers; but Mr. Lincoln, it seems, thinks otherwise. He has apparently come to the conclusion that a blind and unrea
The Daily Dispatch: August 29, 1861., [Electronic resource], An order from Lincoln's War Department. (search)
An order from Lincoln's War Department. A Washington dispatch to the New York Herald, dated Aug. 23d, says: "According to order No. 63, Captain Beverley H. Robertson, of the Second Cavalry, and First Lieutenant. W. T. Walker, of the Ordnance Department, having given proof of their disloyalty are dismissed from the service of the United States." Capt. Robertson, who is a native of Virginia, arrived in Richmond a few days ago, from Utah, and has since been appointed a Captain in the Confederate service.
ry of artillery first, and afterwards General Parson's battery of Missouri troops. It was certainly a glorious victory, though many of our gallant fellows have fallen. Capt. Brown, of Van Buren, is among the killed; also, Jos. J. Walton. Poor Joe, as he fell, waved his hat to his men, and cried, "onward, boys, onward" Maj. Harper, of Churchill's regiment, was taken prisoner, but afterwards made his escape. His brother, (Jim,) Adjutant of the regiment, is, I learn, mortally wounded. Lincoln and all his host can't whip our men, when they fight as they did yesterday. They never turned their backs, but their cry was "onward." A third letter says: We killed Gen. Lyon and have about five hundred prisoners. Gen. Siegel is in the woods, we have taken all his cannon and cut off his command; we took about 150 of his men prisoners; the cavalry, Carroll's and the Texan regiment, are now after him. Ben Johnson had his horse killed under him, within about two feet of me. My horse was
nd has been concerned, has been a disgrace to civilization.--Even now, when the very existence of the Government depends upon the negotiation of a loan in Great Britain, the Herald, the Tribune, the Times--all the New York press — daily insult and vilify the British nation Yankeedom could not expect Great Britain to assist her for love. In the meantime, the necessities of Great Britain demand free access to the ports of the Southern States, to take and carry away the cotton crop, and Mr. Lincoln has taught that necessity has no law. How, then, could the Yankees — Government and people — ever expect anything else than that which they see nigh at band? How could they flatter themselves that Great Britain--having the power, and, as it now appears, the will into the bargain — would ever hesitate between rebellion among her own subjects and a rupture of the blockade? It is very evident that Bennett is desirous to have Russell mobbed. We are sure we have no especial objection.
neness to prevarication of the whole Yankee army, from privates and runaway Captains to a gouty Lieutenant General with his feet in load water, is indeed very remarkable. The reader will be amused at Capt. Jones' allusion to the motive with which the Yankee officers have made their repeated parade of philanthropy in their pious pursuit of the body of the "lamented Cameron," They have brought into systematic and dally use the employment of donning the livery of Heaven to serve the Devil (or Lincoln) in: Messrs. Editors:--My name having been connected with the tortuous proceedings of certain officials of the United States deceased I beg leave to tax your columns as briefly as circumstances will admit. On the 23d ult. Major Wadsworth, of General McDowell's staff, a flag of truce, was stopped outside of our camp at Fairfax C. H. He bore a letter which was forwarded, and it seems came to inquire after missing officers. All in our possession that could alleviate distressed to milie
ance only may we allude, because it contains a much needed lesson as to the folly of lavishing praise before it is earned. The famous New York Fire Zouaves — whose superiority to their French namesakes, or to any troops in the world, it was heresy to doubt — have capped the climax of misconduct. Encamped at the Battery ground of this city, a few nights ago they broke guard almost in a body, declining to be cooped up in such quarters. A few such regiments would disorganize any army. Mr. Lincoln's Non-intercourse proclamation — a sweeping confiscation. On Saturday last appeared the President's proclamation against commercial intercourse with the seceded States, announcing the forfeiture of goods found intransitu, and decreeing the summary forfeiture of vessels belonging in whole or in part to citizens or inhabitants of those States, which may be found at sea or in any part of the United States fifteen days after date of this warning. This it will be perceived is a very sweep<
