e famous Virginia resolutions of 1798 were appealed to by Mr. Calhoun and his friends, as affording countenance to that doctrine, it was repeatedly and emphatically declared by Mr. Madison, the author of the resolutions, that they were intended to claim, not for an individual State, but for the United States, by whom the Constitution was ordained and established, the right of remedying its abuses by constitutional ways, such as united protest, repeal, or an amendment of the Constitution. Maguire's Collection, p. 213. Incidentally to the discussion of nullification, he denied over and over again the right of peaceable secession; and this fact was well known to some of the members of the late Convention at Richmond. When the secrets of their assembly are laid open, no doubt it will appear that there were some faithful Abdiels to proclaim the fact. Oh, that the venerable sage, second to none of his patriot compeers in framing the Constitution, the equal associate of Hamilton in reco

Some details of the fight. We are indebted to Mr. Wm. H. Pritchard, the General Telegraphic News Agent of the Southern Press, for the following statement: Messrs. Maguire and Adair gave us the following statement of the killed and wounded of their company (the Atlanta Ga., Grays,) in the fight on Sunday last at Bull's Run, near Manassas. The killed were two men by the name of Hammond, Isaac Frank, Smith Martin, Anderson Orr, James George, James Kershaw, W. W. Brooks, Joel Yarborough, Robert Hamilton, and George Grambling. Wounded. J.

[for the Richmond Dispatch.] Orange C. H., Va., July 25, 1861. To the Editors of the Dispatch:--In Messrs. Maguire's and Adair's report of the killed and wounded of their company, the Atlanta (Georgia) Grays, I see the name of Isaac Frank put down as killed, which is a mistake; he was not killed, but very severely, if not mortally, wounded — the bones of both legs very badly shattered. He is now in the hospital at this place, and is receiving every attention that can be bestowed under the circumstances. Please insert this in your next issue, in order that his friends at home may know that he is in the hands of kind friends here. W. H. C.

The O'Donoghue. The Solicitor General explained the misapprehension of the O'Donoghue, and said that private vessels might carry contraband of war, but at their own risk, and if detected they must abide the consequences. In the House of Commons, on the 20th ult., Mr. Maguire called the attention of the House to the serious distress at present existing in Ireland. Sir Robert Peal, in reply, refuted his assertions, and, in the course of his remarks, said that no more remarkable proof of the absence of grievances existed than that which occurred the other day, when there was danger of a rupture with America. Ireland was full of American emissaries trying to raise up a spirit of disloyalty, and meetings, were held in Dublin, at which a few mannikin traitors
ceased came there on Friday night, and was, at 11 o'clock, sitting in the public parlor conversing with some of the inmates in an affable manner, when a man named Maguire entered the room unannounced, and seeing Cook, hastily advanced towards him, exclaiming "What is this you have been saying about met" and without giving him the be good his escape. It is conjectured that there had been a previous misunderstanding between the parties, but of its precise nature but little could be gleaned. Maguire, who was known t be stopping at a house on Broad street was sought after on Saturday ineffectually, but no doubt will be caught and brought to justice. The motives that induced the murder, so far as could be ascertained from the testimony of the witnesses, was malice and a desire on the part of Maguire to avenge himself for some supposed insult. This is the first deed of blood we have had to record for some weeks. The Coroner's jury were adjourned after hearing all the evidence available

A provost guard, under Lieut. Brannin, was then sent by Captain Johnson, who succeeded in quelling the riot and arresting the following; Patrick Henney, Thomas O'Connell, Thomas Dorsey, M Henney, Patrick Russell, M Kenney, M McDonough, John Smith, Thomas Mann, Michael Smith, John Flaherty, Felix O'Bryan, P Maguire, Squire Loder, James Ryan. They were committed to the Central guard house. During the night some 200 other arrests were made of parties charged with sympathizing with and aiding the rioters. The success of the French in Mexico. The news from Mexico by the steamer Constitution at San Francisco, with dates from Puebla to the 18th ultimo, leave no room for doubt that the report of the capture of Phebla by the French and the surrender of General Ortega's army is true. But the fa
attempt to resist such a force, although it was reported last night that over two hundred ship carpenters from St. Roch had gone down to cut the Montmorency bridge and prevent the troops from proceeding to Chateau Richer. The greatest excitement prevails in the city. The volunteer force is not expected to return to town before evening, after the draft is completed, unless they meet with determined resistance. The four companies are under command of Lieutenant Colonel De Salaberry, Mr. Justice Maguire accompanying the force in his official capacity. We will have news from the volunteer force this afternoon, which will be communicated to our readers by extra. The resistance to the draft in the rural districts was not unexpected, and has, therefore, not taken the authorities unawares; but that a force such as left the city last night should have been deemed necessary has taken our citizens by surprise.
