arch on the other side, at double quick, after having marched fifty miles with nothing to eat, and fell back upon Colonel McHenry's forces near Morgantown. Hearing their approach in the night, and thinking them the enemy, he fell back a short distance and took a position for battle; but the mistake was soon explained. The force that had not crossed the river at Woodbury, consisting of cavalry under Captain Breathitt, were ordered back by the route they came, and joined the main force near Cromwell. Captain Belt, Captain Breathitt, Captain Somerby, Lieutenant Crosby, Lieutenant Roberts, Lieutenants Ashford and Porter, acted with courage and coolness during the entire engagement. It is due to all the soldiers and officers to state that they acted the part of veterans. Colonel Pegram, of Owensboro, and a near relative of the distinguished Confederate officer of the same name, voluntarily tendered his services as aid to Colonel Burbridge, and rendered most efficient service in the

fringed. Of these articles one of the most remarkable was as follows:— Such as profess faith in God by Jesus Christ (though differing in judgment from the doctrine, worship, or discipline publicly held forth) shall not be restrained from, but protected in the profession of their faith and exercise of their religion. And again, all statutes, ordinances, &c., to the contrary of the aforesaid liberty, shall be esteemed null and void. Notwithstanding this, it would not have been prudent in Cromwell to set Mr. Biddle completely at liberty; by which step not only the Presbyterians, but the greater part of those of all denominations who were earnestly attached to what were called orthodox views in religion, would have been deeply offended. He, therefore, detained him in prison, and, after some time, wearied out with the solicitations of the contending parties, sent him into banishment in the Scilly Islands, October 5, 1655, In this seclusion he was, it is true, debarred from most of

Who doubts that the profligate King avenged himself as soon as the backs of his unwelcome visitors were fairly turned, by coarse jests and ribaldry, directed against a class of men whom he despised and hated, but towards whom reasons of policy dictated a show of civility and kindness? There is reason to believe that Charles II., had he been able to effect his purpose, would have gone beyond Cromwell himself in the matter of religious toleration; in other words, he would have taken, in the outset of his reign, the very steps which cost his successor his crown, and procured the toleration of Catholics by a declaration of universal freedom in religion. But he was not in a situation to brave the opposition alike of Prelacy and Presbyterianism, and foiled in a scheme to which he was prompted by that vague, superstitious predilection for the Roman Catholic religion which at times struggled
Col. Gabe Fowler, a Mississippian, evinced his patriotism on the 24th ult., by paying $1,800 for the expense of transporting the cannon and munitions purchased in Baton Rouge, La., to Vicksburg, Miss. Major Walter Gwynn, Chief of the South Carolina Engineer corps, advertises for offering of laborers to be employed in works for the defence of Charleston harbor. The ammunition seized on last Wednesday by the New York Metropolitan police, on board the steamship Huntsville, of the Cromwell line, was on Friday given up by Superintendent Kennedy, in obedience to the demands of the Sheriff. Mr. Kennedy was replevined by Mr. Cromwell, and, therefore, was forced to surrender them under the compulsion of the law. The Milledgeville(Ga.) Recorder learns that the Governor has appointed the Hon. T. Butler King, Commissioner to negotiate with the Belgium and Savannah Steam Navigation Company, for the establishment of direct trade with Southern ports, pursuant to a late act of the L
