nufacturer of Yankee enthusiasm. In his editorial account of the meeting of the Loyal League at Utica, Greeley thus unconsciously lets the cat out of the bag: "More than one thousand of those invitation, the expense of their transportation being defrayed by a subscription here, while at Utica the noblest women ministered to their wants with a bounteousness and sapidity which left nothings will long cherish a lively and grateful remembrance of the hospitalities of the loyal women of Utica, and that they returned to our city more eager, if possible, than before to serve and save their the aforesaid discharged soldiers "to rally again under the flag," to ride, free of expense, to Utica and back; the reckless daring with which they stormed and carried the successive meals, "fit for an Emperor," set before them by the "noblest women of Utica," and the "glorious" feelings with which they sallied forth, forgetful of the disabilities which had procured their discharge from the Yan
Vallandigham meetings in New York --In several counties in New York indignation meetings have been held to protest against the arrest of Hon. C. L. Vallandigham. In Utica, Oneida county, about 3,000 persons were present, including some returned soldiers, who evinced their approval of the course of the proceedings by loud applause: Hon. Chas. S. Wilson, Mayor of Utica, prosided, assisted by-a-large number of vice presidents and secretaries. Eloquent and impressive speeches were madeUtica, prosided, assisted by-a-large number of vice presidents and secretaries. Eloquent and impressive speeches were made by Hon. Francis Kernan and Elias B. Schnable, of Pa., and dignified and earnest resolutions were adopted. We quote the concluding resolution: Therefore we solemnly protest against the acts of Gen. Burniside, recited in the preamble hereof, as a defiance of the laws, an outrage upon the Constitution, and a deadly blow at public liberty; and we call upon the President to rescind that officer's unconstitutional and despotic order, to set aside the mock trial and illegal sentence of which Mr

The letter says: One fellow, who recently ran the blockade from this port, purchased a barrel of liquor in Havana for eleven dollars, that he sold here on return for eleven hundred. His whole investment amounted to seventy-five dollars and his profits over twenty-five hundred. In no case have I heard of a single steamer bringing in any bacon, flour, sugar, or molasses, or any cargo, entirely of munitions of war or medicines. The goods brought back have the "Utica, N. Y.," and "Lowell, Mass.," brands upon them, and king cotton has been dethroned and sold in exchange for them, either direct or indirect. If rumor is true, (and I have no right to question it,) cotton has been hauled from here to Pascagoula, and shipped on steamers to New Orleans, and it is supposed to be by the consent of the Government. Restrictions of the most revere character should be thrown around this business, and its transaction diligently inquired into. I saw one of the crew refu
dictates of my condolence. Bad opening for the Union League-a mass meeting Beckon up. The Union Leagues in the North are coming to grief. A mass meeting, intended to be the opening of a series by the Union Leagues, was attempted in Utica, N. Y., a few days ago. The troubles of the day commenced by the infidelity of some of the Leaguers, among whom were John Van Buren, Brady, Daniel S. Dickinson, George Bancroft, and others, who entirely failed to appear and enlogize the "glorious old flag" as they had agreed to do. The League had paid the expenses of a large number of returned soldiers to Utica to join in the demonstration, but these heroes, it seems, played a very unfair game with their confiding employers. The Observer says: Early in the afternoon the soldiers began to "show their hand." The New York Zouaves procured a banner bearing a handsome portrait of McClellan, and with it they went from one stand to another, followed by the soldiers, and at each stand the p

The surrender of Vicksburg was received with the most extravagant demonstrations at the North. Secretary Welles visited Lincoln in person to communicate Porter's dispatch, and 200 guns were fired in Washington. At Burlington, N. J., 100 guns were fired and the church bells rung. In New York city the town was bedizened with flags. In Albany, Syracuse, Utica, and Robuster, N. Y., the bell-ringing, cannon-firing, and fireworks, was freely indulged. The militia turned out to celebrate the victory of the regulars. Thirty locomotives were started to whistling at Hornersville, and at Bridgeport, Conn., P. T. Barnum made a speech. In Massachusetts, Maine, and Ohio, hilarious demonstrations took place. In Philadelphia the newspaper offices were illuminated. The Inquirer says: The news of the capture of Vicksburg was sent forth to the inhabita
ringing of church and signal bells; at noon, the salute was repeated from Forts Federal Hill and Marshall, Christ Church bells joining in with a peal, performing at intervals various patriotic airs. The National Convention of the War Democrats met on Tuesday. Delegates were present from twenty-five States. James Morrall, of Pennsylvania, was made president of the convention. General Hiram Wallbridge delivered an oration. By an agreement among the pastors of the churches of Utica, New York, a meeting for prayer will be held on Monday afternoon next, from 4 to 5 o'clock, that the Almighty may "direct the people of the land in the exercise of their elective franchise, and restrain the passions of the people, that we may be delivered from violence and be blessed in the continuance of our liberties." A block of marble, wrought in Italy for the South Carolina State-House, now surmounts the firemen's monument in a Chicago cemetery, having been confiscated in trying to run
prospects. [From the Liverpool Albion] Amongst those that are born of woman there beats not a bolder heart than that of Jefferson Davis. We are not ashamed to confess to a large amount of hero-worship for the man for when his Northern foes can find no better name than rebel and slave-owner. Never unduly elated by success, never dismayed by adversity, his voice rings out clear as a trumpet-call on the darkest day that befalls his country. Not Cato himself spoke to his little Senate at Utica with more dignity and steadfastness than does the Southern President when addressing his suffering fellow-countrymen. Four years have passed since the tremendous struggle began with which his name will be forever identified; and, if American figures can be trusted, (a point on which we always feel serious misgivings,) those four years have witnessed a greater amount of bloodshed and a larger loss of human life than any other four consecutive years since the Deluge. The loss of ten thousand
Cheese-making in New York. --At the Convention of Cheese Manufacturers of New York, held at Utica, January 12, 1865, twenty-five cheese factories were represented, from thirteen counties.--They made three million, nine hundred and ten thousand pounds of cheese last year from the milk of eleven thousand, six hundred and seventy cows--nine and a half to a fraction over ten pounds of milk to one pound of cheese. The smallest factory made from the milk of two hundred cows; the largest (in Oneida county) from that of one thousand and thirty-two cows. The milk is brought to the factories by the neighboring farmers.
National Bank stock subject to taxation by State and municipal authorities.--Court of Appeals--September term. The City of Utica vs. G. Clarence Churchill et al.--The point in controversy in this action was, substantially, whether or not certain taxes imposed by the city of Utica upon the stockholders of the Second National BUtica upon the stockholders of the Second National Bank of Utica upon their several shares in said bank were legally imposed, and whether payment of the same could be legally enforced. The Court held unanimously (Judge Porter not sitting in the case) that the interest of the stockholders in the national banks organized under the act of Congress of June 3, 1864, are legally taxable Utica upon their several shares in said bank were legally imposed, and whether payment of the same could be legally enforced. The Court held unanimously (Judge Porter not sitting in the case) that the interest of the stockholders in the national banks organized under the act of Congress of June 3, 1864, are legally taxable for State and county and municipal purposes, pursuant to the laws of the State; that the objection that these moneyed institutions are instrumentalities of the General Government for the execution of its constitutional powers, and are exempt from State taxation upon the principle by which the late Bank of the United States was adju
