ports mention three large steamers surprised by the blockading fleet at the moment when, with rich cargoes, they were going to enter Wilmington. All three of them ran aground —the Kate on the 12th of July, the Hebe on the 18th of August, and the Venus on the 21st of October. The first, after having been cannonaded by the Federals, was taken off by their adversaries on July 30th, but at the instant when the latter were going to take it into friendly waters the fleet intervened and seized the the shore, and, supported by skilful sharpshooters, its fire obliged the Union sailors, deprived of all assistance, to jump overboard and swim for the beach to surrender. Taught by this experience, the blockading fleet contented itself, when the Venus went aground, with destroying it with cannon-shot. The enumeration of the expeditions undertaken inland will be brief. From the 24th-30th of June several vessels, ascending the Pamunkey River, supported Keyes' demonstration against Richmond,

ay have a full octave of strings, To both maker and minstrel the harp is a unit. So the power that creates Our Republic of States To harmony tunes them at different dates; And many or few, when the Union is done, Be they thirteen or thirty, the nation is one. The science that measures and numbers the spheres, And has done so since first the Chaldean began it, Now and then, as she counts them and measures their years, Brings into our system and names a new planet. Yet the old and new stars, Venus, Neptune and Mars, As they drive round the sun their invisible cars, Whether faster or slower their races are run, Are ‘E Pluribus Unum’—of many made one. Of those federate spheres, should but one fly the track, Or with others conspire for a general dispersion, By the great central orb they would all be brought back, And each held in place by a wholesome ‘coercion.’ Were one daughter of light Indulged in her flight, They might all be engulfed by old Chaos and Night. So must none of our
, is the planet Uranus, plainly visible to the naked eye, and the next interior to Neptune. Farther eastward of the meridian is the imperial Jupiter, shining with a steady, burning lustre, which rivals in brilliancy even Sirius in the southwest. A line drawn from Jupiter through Regulus, and continued as far eastward, will point at Saturn, always easily recognized by its pale, steady lustre.-- These two great planets will continue to adorn our evening sky for some months to come.--Mars and Venus only are wanting to make this planetary spectacle complete. The splendid constellation Orion, in the meridian, presents sufficient starry attractions for one night; but Procyon and Sirius of the Hyades and Pleiades, will ever be present to divide its glory and share its homage. The beautiful star Capella looks meekly down from the zenith, on all these; and the great, brilliant circumpolar constellations, Cassiopeia, the Great Bear, and the contortious Draco, outwatch them all in the no
row to any one whom he saw struggling in the water. He was also to challenge any one who approached his post after dark; to fire off a blank cartridge in case of fire; and, above all, to allow no one to smoke either on the wharf or on board the shipping moored off it. All this he repeated in a breath, like a child saying its catechism; and I passed on, and spent half an hour in watching the prodigies performed by a Volcanic hammer, though, if Vulcan can hit half as hard as that, I pity poor Venus when he comes home jealous and nectary.--Then came an interview with another sentry, then I watched the process of razzing a three-decker that would not sail into a frigate that would: after which came more sentries, all of whom told their little tale so exactly in the same way, that I grew weary and determined to "dodge" the next. This was a tall, sturdy, red-faced lad, evidently not long from the plough, who, when I came upon him round a corner, was standing gazing into his sentry-box, re
Page's Venus. --A correspondent of a New Orleans paper says: --Through a typographical error you made me call Page, the artist's wife, Miss Page. She was duly married to Page, and furnished the model of his celebrated Venus. The union, however, became disagreeable to Mrs. Page, and she seceded with an Italian Count, who pleased her no better than her husband. Now she is like the last rose of summer, blooming alone, and purposes to come out as an actress.
The New Comet. --The newly arrived celestial visitant, which is now to be seen every evening, has a nucleus as large as the apparent disc of Venus at her greatest brilliancy, and also the usual hazy look of comets. The tail extends toward the zenith, nearly in the direction of the star Vega, crossing a line extending from "the pointers" to the North star. It is to the right of the pointers, (the two right hand stars in the "dipper,") and is so near the polar star that it does not set beneath the horizon. We presume this is the comet which once put all Europe in consternation and sent a monarch to a monastery, and which has been looked for the past four or five years.--This is the greatest comet seen since the big one made its appearance a few years since. For several nights it appears to have been increasing in size. People who have attentively watched its course think it will finally burst in the vicinity of Washington and overwhelm the guilty conspirators assembled there.

ers, 2 Campbell, 340. New, as I said before, the domicil of the owner at the time of the capture of the vessel determines its character as hostile or not. In the ease of the "Ocean," 5 C. Robinson, 91, Sir Wm. Scott decided that a British merchant settled in Holland, at the breaking out of hostilities, but taking early measures to remove, was entitled to restitution of his property seized as enemy's property. And the same doctrine was maintained by the Supreme Court in the case of the "Venus," 8 Cranch, 203. Justice Washington, in delivering the opinion of the Court, says, speaking of a domicil acquired in a foreign country: "But this national character which a man acquires by residence may be thrown off at pleasure by a return to his native country, or even by his turning his back on the country in which he has resulted, on his way to another. To use the language of Sir Wm. Scott, it is an adventitious character gained by residence and which ceases by non-residence. It no lon
ow pass away! Not tid comes Death's endless peace,-- Not till comes th'eternal day! [The foregoing is a very fair imitation of Pae. It is shrewdly suspected that the author is a Bachelor.] In a much better temper, evidently, is the author of the following,--his hopes are certainly brighter, and he paints a far brighter and lovelier picture. He is a happy fellow, and will turn out productive and useful to his country, as a few years will show: To Constance. Shine out with mellifluent light Upon the still and starry sir, And chase the darkness from the night, Girl of the radiant hair. Walk forth into the garish day, And look upon the azure sky. And shame the heaven's sapphire ray. Girl of the azure eye. Float out upon the morning gale When joyous birds the dew drops sip; Come forth and make Aurora pale Girl of the crimson lip. Appear, and to my soul reveal Far more than Venus could impart; Appear, alie at thy feet I kneel, Queen of the beating heart.
