oncessions, let us be ready for war, and when we have driven every foreign soldier from our shores, then let us take our place in the glorious Republic the future promises us.

Y. Times, May 1. The Toronto (Canada) Globe of to-day, in a long article on American affairs, says that the North, by their impatience with reference to President Lincoln's policy, ignore the stupendous and delicate task he has before him, and will drive the country to anarchy and chaos. It advocates strengthening Mr. Lincoln's hands, and to abstain from perplexing his councils. The Leader, the Government organ, fears that Canada may become involved, and advocates an armed neutrality, and suggests that the Canadian Government represent to the imperial authorities the expediency of sending six or eight regiments of the line for the protection of the frontier. The Palmetto Guard, Marion Artillery, and German Artillery returned from Morris' Island to Charleston, S.
S. Fay, Military Secretary.--N. Y. Commercial, May 31. The Philadelphia Evening Journal of to-day says: We have it from good authority that there are, at this time, about five hundred Indians stationed at Harper's Ferry, with the rebel, or traitor army. If this be the mode of warfare these blood-thirsty, scalping devils are to be brought into the fight, our friends in the South must not consider it all unkind if we accept the proffered services of the ten regiments of free negroes in Canada and the North, and send them down South. Our Governor refused to let one regiment of negroes pass through our State to go South to do battle, but if Indians are to be brought into the field by Jeff. Davis, the South may rely on it they will be met with a corresponding force of negroes, and they will increase their numbers as they pass through the country, by having the slaves join them. The Advance Guard, Fifth Regiment, N. Y. Volunteers, Col. Duryea, embarked on board the steam transp

Yours respectfully, T. S. C. Lowe. An official order from the Duke of New-castle, forbidding privateers to enter the ports of Canada, was published in the Montreal (Canada) papers.--(Doc. 262.)

He captured two other vessels — namely, the schooner Bachelor and the sloop H. Day. The former had d
ion company, supposed to be the Bitterwater Blues. None of the Boone Guards were hurt, and, if any injury was done on the rebel side, the darkness concealed it. The secessionists made only a running fight, and a very poor one too.--Louisville Journal, Sept. 20. An immense Union meeting was held at Bangor, Me., this evening. Over five thousand people attended. The meeting was addressed by some of the most prominent citizens, and the greatest enthusiasm was manifested. The Quebec (Canada) Mercury wishes the South to persevere in its course, in order to break up the hitherto boastful Union; and it desires that England and France may recognize the confederacy as the speediest way of destroying the Government. After that work is accomplished, that paper thinks that England will, in a little time, by productions of cotton in India, make herself independent of the Southern States in regard to that staple, and that, it further says, would lead to the emancipation of the slaves,
