lism is linked to those names; and because those men have performed deeds which deserve to live in history. And what shall I say of the men who followed these leaders? I will say this, without the slightest fear of contradiction from any source: They were the most unselfish and devoted patriots that ever marched to the tap of the drum, or stood on the bloody front of battle. The northern historian, Swinton, speaks of them as the incomparable infantry of the Army of Northern Virginia. Colonel Dodge, a distinguished Federal officer, in his lecture on Chancellorsville, before the Lowell Institute in Boston, says: The morale of the Confederate army could not have been finer. * * * Perhaps no infantry was ever, in its peculiar way, more permeated with the instinct of pure fighting—ever felt the gaudiam certaminis more than the Army of Northern Virginia. Another gallant Federal colonel thus wrote of them: I take a just pride as an American citizen, a descendant on both s

A Representative American. --Mr. Nesmith, one of the newly-elected Senators from Oregon, is a native of the State of Maine, and is now about forty-five years of age. He was educated in a carpenter's shop, and followed the business until he became of age, when he emigrated to the west, and finding himself one day out of money, and being unable to get employment at his trade, enlisted in the army. He served five years on the western frontier, in Dodge's Regiment of Dragoons. At the expiration of his term of service, he started overland for Oregon, with the emigration of 1843, and arrived in Oregon city in the fall of that year. When the provisional Government was organized in 1844, Nesmith was elected one of the Territorial Judges. He went to California in the summer of 1848, with many other Oregonians, worked for some months at mining, on Feather River, and returned to Oregon the next Spring. He was afterwards Superintendent of Indian Affairs for Oregon, but was removed.

Decision against the Government in the case of the Indian trust bonds, --In the United States District Court for the Southern district of New York, on Saturday last, Judge Smalley delivered an oral opinion in the case of the United States against Goddard Bailey, and the Bank of the Republic and others.--The Government in this case sought to compel the defendants to deliver such of the stolen bonds as they might have in their possession. The parties who were thus proceeded against was the Bank of the Republic; Clark, Dodge & Co.; Thompson Brothers, and Richard Schell. The Judge decided that the bonds in question were negotiable, and were negotiated in the regular course of business. All parties who had received them in good faith, and without notice of their abstraction, were bona fide holders, and could not be called upon to deliver them up except in due course of redemption. The temporary injunctions obtained by the Government were therefore all vacated.

The present draft was paid on the 2d of November. As soon as it was pronounced a forgery, he went to the Virginia Bank and found that it was paid to order of Cockson, through a letter. [Witness detailed some further testimony relative to a visit of Cockson to New York, where he gave a draft through Clark, Dodge & Co., brokers, for $150, the balance being drawn on checks for $25 each.] Mr. Sutton did not believe that this draft was in McAllister's handwriting.--If isolated, he would have no hesitation in taking it; but on comparing it with others, he did not believe it genuine. Mr. McAllister testified that the draft was not in his handwriting, nor was it given by his authority. There were two others in the firm besides himself, but he transacted all the financial business. They are contracto

Rumors, &c., in Baltimore. Baltimore, July 11. --It is again rumored here that Gen. Patterson's entire army has been annihilated. The troops quartered in the city are apparently preparing to leave. Mr. Dodge, a Unionist, has been appointed City Marshal. Major Twiller's dispatches create intense curiosity. It appears they demanded the virtual surrender of Washington. [We don't know who Major Twiller is, Col. Taylor went to Washington with dispatches. Probably the Northern public has been "sold" as to the nature of the dispatches.--Eds.]
