to act as the agent of the company in New Orleans. Provision will be made for just debts and genuine stock of the sold-out company owned by citizens of the Confederate States. The policy of the company will be published in due season, and we have no doubt it will be generally approved by all those who desire nothing more than evders, we understand, approached the island and threw several shell into the deserted fort, and finding no enemy on the island, valiantly landed and hoisted the United States flag. Fraternizing of the Tennessee and Kentucky troops — occupation of Bowling Green, etc. The Memphis Daily Argus learn by the train to that city fr prisoners: Las Crucks, New Mexico, Aug. 1, 1861. The undersigned officers of the United States Army, recently surrendered to the forces of the Confederate States under Lieut. Col. J. R. Baylor, commanding Mounted Rifles C. S.

Promotion. --We are gratified to learn that Brig Gen. Earl Van-Dorn, who recently so signally distinguished himself by the capture of United States troops in Texas, has been promoted to the rank of Major General in the Confederate States army. There is no officer more deserving of the honor. In former days, when in another service, he rendered most efficient aid to his Government; and his career since the South has thrown off her allegiance to that Government has been full of promise. Gen. Van-Dorn arrived in Richmond on Sunday, and is, we regret to say, quite sick at the Exchange Hotel, though his friends anticipate his speedy recovery.
towards the close of the sixteenth century, by the Archbishop of Canterbury, in view of the great war then waging by Philip of Spain against Elizabeth of England. It has been slightly altered to adapt it to the present circumstances of the Confederate States: A prayer. O. Eternal God! In power most mighty, in strength most glorious, without whom the horse and charlotte is in vain prepared against the day of battle, vouchsafe, we beseech Thee, from Thy high throne of majesty, to hear and receive the hearty and humble prayer which, on banded knees, we, the people of Thy pasture and the sheep of thy hands, unfeignedly acknowledging Thy might and our own weakness, do now pour out before Thee, on behalf of these Confederate States, their armies, their rulers, and their valiant men of war, who, by Thee inspired, have put their lives in their hands, and at this time do oppose themselves against the malice and violence of such as bear a mortal hate against us. Arise, O. Lord, and stan

daily inflicted upon unhappy Maryland. Nothing less was to be expected. It was precisely for that purpose that the brigade was organized, that Sickles assisted in its organization, that New York gave him her blessing, that the Government accepted him and his followers. "Booty and Beauty" were the watchwords deliberately adopted, and "booty and beauty" are thus far the order of the day. What else than such scenes of horror as are transpiring in Maryland could be expected of such a brigade and such a General? In no civilized society of Christendom could such a fellow as Sickles be recognized by gentlemen, and in no army on the face of the earth, except that of the United States, would he be permitted to hold a commission. His soul is stained with damning connivance at the dishonor of his own hearthstone, and his hands red with the blood of murder. We hope and believe that he will soon expiate, as far as his worthless life can expiate, a career of unexampled degradation and crime.
The New York Herald. --James Gordon Bennett, who is now the principal trumpeter of the old United States, and is discoursing blood and thunder every day, is thus described in the Diary of the late Captain Marryatt, R. N.: "He has been horse-whipped, kicked trodden under foot, spit upon, and degraded in every possible way; but all this he courts, because it brings money. Horse-whip him, and he will bend his back to the lash and thank you; for every blow is worth so many dollars. Kick him, and he will remove his out-tills, that you may have a better mark. Spit upon him, and he prizes it as precious ornament. On the day after the punishment he publishes a full and particular account of how many kicks, tweaks of the nose, or issues he may have received." That this account is in some particulars literally true, is shown by the fact that on the 21st or 22d of January, 1836, Bennett absolutely published a circumstantial account of a drubbing which he had received on the
onstantly violated by its functionaries.--Hence the ascendancy of Lynch law over State law; hence assassination in the daylight in the thronged street, and hence that intimidation from without which makes legislation itself a farce. The ablest men in America have bowed down before these demoralizing necessities. No man in America stands clear of this rotten despotism. The orator is compelled to address himself to the low standard of the populace; the preacher must preach down to the capacities of his congregation; the newspaper editor must make his journal infamous if he would have it popular; for never let it be supposed that the degradation of the American press is the work of the writers in it, but of the frightful eagerness of the public appetite for grossness and indecency." The people of the United States, who set up an exclusive claim to the name of "America, " and to all that appertains thereto, are perfectly welcome to the above truthful and good natured compliment.
