creatures who are growing up so rapidly, and will soon shove aside the actors now on the stage, and take things in their own hands. May their guardian angels make them good and virtuous, and more fit than we are to manage affairs.--Their innocent little hearts are the happier and none the worse for listening to pleasant stories. We have now for them, "Fairy Night Caps," "Big Night Cap Letters," and "New Fairy Stories for my Grandchildren." By Geo. Keil, translated from the German by S. W. Lander. For sale by Messrs. Woodhouse & Co. They were all published by Appleton & Co. Quiet Thoughts for Quiet Hours. By the author of "Life's Morning," "Life's Evening," "Sunday Hours," &c. Boston: J. E. Tilton & Co.--A very neat volume, of a pious and poetical character. For sale by Woodhouse & Co. Considerations on some of the elements and conditions of Social Welfare and Human Progress.

patch.letter from Charleston--Black Republican Misrepresentations, &c. Charleston, Jan. 17, 1861. You have seen, no doubt, going the rounds of the newspapers at the North, many slanderous reports concerning our people, in this their struggle against Black Republican rule. We expect nothing else from them; but some of your readers may, perchance, suppose that such things may exist. It is for their benefit, the sons and daughters of my dear old mother, Virginia that I write. One Lander is, that our citizens have to submit to forced Loans, to support the army. This I first saw in the N. Y. Tribune, and again in that other Republican sheet, the Boston Daily Advertiser. I give it the flat and palpable lie. No such thing has occurred in this State. There is no need of any such expedient. Another untruth: A company of volunteers on their way to this city, called at a widow lady's house and demanded dinner and contributions and left without paying. This is utterly unfou
From Washington. Washington, Feb. 2. --A salute was fired at the National Armory, to-day, for the admission of Kansas into the Union. Col. Lander, whose superintendency of the Overland Wagon Road was so satisfactory, has resigned that office.
Belle Morris and Hill for an attack on Cairo. By the following telegram from Washington, it appears that a California Colonel has "become disgusted:" Col. Lander left for New York this morning. Owing to some misunderstanding, or mismanagement, he has become disgusted and gone North. He wanted the Government to accept oered him the command. The plea against such a move was, that it would provoke unnecessary opposition.--Through Gen. Scott's advice, the War Department declined Col. Lander's offer. He will probably be heard from in the fight for the Union, in his own way, at the time when he is most needed. Col. Lander left here in company with Col. Lander left here in company with the Committee of New York merchants, who have gone home. The Alexandria Sentinel, of Saturday evening, publishes the following letter from Washington: A disclosure has just come to light in regard to an attempt to catch Virginia napping. It seems that the time the various regiments from the North and other free States
is supporters: The hour appointed for the attack came and passed, but still Col. Kelly's division had not arrived. Impatient to begin the attack, and fearful that the enemy, almost within his grasp, should escape without smelling powder, Col. Lander ordered the artillery to begin the attack, and at a quarter past four the guns were unlimbered and dropped the first messengers of terror into the enemy's camp, less than a quarter of a mile away. Simultaneously with the roar of the first gunafter firing at random and scattering volleys which did no damage whatever. Col. Kelly's command was close after, the Virginia troops in advance, the Henry Clay Guards in front, and Col. Kelly and Capt. Fordyce leading. At the same time Colonel Lander's force came rushing down the hill to the bridge, and they all put out after the fugitives, yelling like Indians. They could not be overtaken by our already exhausted men, who, after chasing them a couple of miles, returned to the evacuated
Resigned. --Col. Lander, who constructed the Overland Pacific Wagon Head, has resigned his superintendency of the Indian Affairs. He was appointed Superintendent during the Mormon war, the salary having been increased to induce him to accept the office. He constructed the road, and, unlike most government agents, returned a handsome balance of the appropriation to the Treasury.
isis presents; and I trust we may soon fight, not only on the banks of the Potomac or on the shores of North Carolina, but even on the shores of and in South Carolina, lighted by the smoking and rebellious cities. From the upper Potomac--Gen. Lander. Washington, October 29. --Accounts from Barnestown state that arrivals from the Monocracy and the scene of the recent battle below show that all was quiet there yesterday. The enemy's pickets frequented the Virginia shore of the Potomac, and occasionally sent a leaden compliment to our pickets on this side, but no serious casualties have occurred. The question has been asked why General Lander was absent from his brigade at the battle of Ball's Bluff, in which one of his regiments, the 20th Massachusetts, participated. He was in Washington at the time under special orders from the Government, and, on hearing of the engagement, he immediately proceeded to Poolesville, and took part in the action next day at Edward's Fe
his reconnaissance, and giving due notice of the appoach of any force, and that Lieut. Col. Ward, with his battalion of the 15th Massachusetts, should move on to Smoot's Mills, half a mile to the right of the crossing place of Col. Devens, and see where, in a strong position, he could watch and protect the flank of Col. Devens in his return, and secure a second crossing more favorable than the first, and connected by a good road with Leesburg.--Capt. Candy, Assistant Adjutant General, and Gen. Lander accompanied the cavally to serve with it. For some reason never explained to me, neither of these orders were carried out. The cavalry were transferred to the Virginia shore, but were sent back without having left the shore to go inland, and thus Col. Devens was deprived of the means of obtaining warning of any approach of the enemy. The battalion under Col. Ward was detained on the Bluff in the rear of Colonel Devens, instead of being directed to the right. Col. Baker having arrive
Major Charles L. Hinton, formerly Public Treasurer of the State of North Carolina, died at his residence, near Raleigh, on the 23d ult, in the 69th year of his age. Mr. Kerr, of Salisbury, N. C., has been appointed by Judge Slunders, District Solicitor in the place of Mr. Lander, elected to Congress.

Retaliation in the case of Ex Minister Faulkner--condition of Gen. Lander. Washington, Dec. 4. --Mr. Colfax, of Indiana, who offered the resolution in the House yesterday requesting the President to impose the same imprisonment upon Mason and Slidell that the rebels have extended to Cols. Wood and Corcoran, will offer a similar resolution to imprison Col. Faulkner in a manner similar to that dealt out to Mr. Ely, when it shall be positively known that he is treated other than as an honorable prisoner of war. Brigadier-General Lander is still quite convalescent, and rode out this afternoon, the first time since he was wounded. He is impatient to rejoin his command. From Kentucky. Louisville, Ky., Dec. 4. --A letter to the Democrat, from Somerset, on the Cumberland river, says that
