military authorities took possession of and held diving services on the Second Presbyterian Church Dr. Grundy, pastor.--They ensconced themselves in genuine military style, marching in amid strains of martial music, and "re-occupying" the unresisting pews, the musical department "re- taking" the choir gallery, and the preacher "re-possessing" the pulpit. After these recoveries, a hymn being adapted to a "national" tune, was performed to the immense satisfaction of the Union savers. The reverend Yankee divine, we learn, read a profound essay on good manners to his soldier auditors, upon two-thirds of whom, our informant tells us, it produced a peculiarly soporific effect, which was only dispelled by the "sounding fife and pealing drum" at the close of the services. None of our substantial citizens were present on this interesting occasion, and the respectable number of five forlorn, cadaverous-looking females, evidently of the lower classes, represented the Union feeling of the oth
Prison Items. --The following parties were committed to Castle Thunder during Saturday and Sunday viz: Nine deserters from Camp Lee, arrested in this city. James Gilmer, a Pennsylvanian, found within our lines, arrested by order of Gen Brans; James Gorant, of Loudoun county is a suspicious character. Thomas Moss of Loudoun any and pilot to the Yankee Charles Standen a suspicious character, taken at Harper's Ferry has and James for trading with Yankee and John Hart, company E. 5th couchant regiment, for attempting to pass into the enemy's lines while Jackson's army occupied Harper's Ferry.
Lord Lyons recently had an interview with Seward. The Yankee correspondents, in speaking of the interview, says "that nothing whatever of an official character has been received from England, or any other European power, indicating an intention to interfere with our political affairs in connection with a recognition of Southern independence." Threatening character of Yankee Foreign relations. The special Washington correspondent of the New York Times, who seems to have taken Yankee "foreign relations" especially in charge, in his dispatch yesterday enlarges upon the "delicate nature of Yankee relations with France and Spain as follows: The official announcement made some days ago by the State Department, that there is no reason to apprehend serious embarrassments with France on account of Gen. Butler's operations in Louisiana, is now proved to have this foundation and no more: The French Government has demanded full and immediate indemnity for all injuries inflic

month earlier here than in Eastern Virginia--Only feed and clothe these men as they deserve to be and they will fight well; but let a soldier's treatment be such as to get up the idea in his mind that his Government is indifferent as to his welfare, or ungrateful for past services, and his spirit is destroyed and his services are rendered grudgingly — While her soldiers are only allowed the pittance of $11 per mouth, be Government should see that they are at least rendered comfortable. A report has just reached camp that there are three regiments of Yankee. at Raleigh Court-House and two at Fayetteville, I think it quite likely the report is true, especially if any design is had on Salem or Staunton. I was delighted to-day when I read the proclamation of the President touching the brutal murder by McNeill of ten citizens of Missouri at Paimyra. Be tailation — sure, swift, and bloody — is the only means by which the heartless enemy can be brought to his senses. A Re
e there, and such waving of handkerchiefs and shouting I never saw or heard. The inhabitants seemed to take advantage of the occasion and gave vent to their feelings.--As luck would have it. Butler was absent out of town or I suspect a regiment would have been sent to the levee to drive us away. There was a Yankee woman who had the impudence to wave a miniature Federal flag at our boys; but in a few moments a stout little rebel girl pitched into her and gave her such an overhauling that Mrs. Yankee ceased to appear. * * * * You would not know the levee; the Yankees have taken up nearly all the wharves and filled up the deficiency with the deposit. This is the case all along the steamboat landing. the earth being extended far enough to admit of another square.--There are no steamboats along the landing now; neither do those heaps of produce, which used to cover the levee, appear. All is waste. A few steamers arrive from the North, but a Southerner has not interest in them. *
$11, first quality beeves were selling at 25 cents per pound net. There was a case before the U. S. Provisional Court. Judge Peabody, of some interest. Lucien Adams, shortly after the advent of Butler, was arrested and imprisoned in one of the forts, where be has been ever since. His counsel, Col. Field, had made repeated, but unavailing efforts for a trial or admission to bail. The only crime which the accused had committed was merely the avowal, before the occupation of the city by Yankee, of a preference for the Southern Confederacy. Subsequently other charges, such as heading or promoting a conspiracy, &c., were trumped up, but no proof had been advanced. How the case terminated the report does not say, but judging from the seal of the prosecuting attorney, not, we imagine, to the benefit of the prisoner. From a New Orleans letter in the Grenada (Miss.) Appeal, we take the following gossip of interest: When Banks first came here with his great expedition, that

ursued, and the aid she has rendered to the national Government. He approves of the grant made by Congress for the establishment of agricultural colleges, and recommends the Legislature to take steps to comply with the conditions of the grant. The second half of the message is devoted to the slavery question, in relation to the President's proclamation of emancipation. It is from this portion that we make the following extracts, showing what that unhappy State has suffered at the hands of Yankee "friends." What She has a right to complain of. She has a right to complain that her neutrality has been denounced in the Halls of Congress as either treasonable or cowardly or both. This is a most unkind return to those patriotic and loyal men, who, perfectly understanding the difficulties in their path, adopted the only line of policy that could stem the tide of Southern sympathy, and in so doing keep safely to her moorings a great State which, if it had been lost to the Union, wo
"Took the Oath." --The Yorkville (S. C.) Enquirer informs us that Lieut. Pemble, one of the captured officers of the Isaac P. Smith, off Stono, and who had been confined with his Yankee confreres in the jail at columbia, has renounced the old Union and taken the oath of allegiance to his proper mother, the Southern Confederacy, and is discharged. Quite a "scene" occurred on the occasion, and varied "phrases" were exchanged, rather more of the marine then of the moral school.
Mirian --By Marian Marland--Through the courtesy of a friend we have received a copy of Marian Marland's last work. The following is a copy of the "dedication;" "To one of Kentucky's noblest sour, George D. Prentice, Esq., Patriot Post and Friend, this story of Kentucky life is gratefully and cordially dedicated." It happens, in this case, that one of "Kentucky's noblest sons" is a Connectic at Yankee.
This lady was for a long time a resident of the parish of Pointe Coupee--her father, H. K. Moss, being a large sugar planter on the Bayon Fordoche. Her marriage with the Yankee officer was some what romantic. It seems that while the Federal were stationed around her house at Skipwith's landing, a difficulty occurred among them, and hearing the disturbance Mrs. H. went out to see what was the matter. In the melee one of the muskets went off and the ball passed through the lady's arm, wounding her severely. As no physician was to be found is the neighborhood, Mrs. Harris was taken on board one of the gunboats for treatment. There she met Capt. Sullivan, whom she afterwards married. Her matrimonial lies, however, was not of long duration. Heaven refused to smile upon such a union of discordant elements. In the fight with the "Queen," the Captain and husband of Mrs. Harris was among the first killed, and now she is a widow once more, perhaps to become the wife of another Yankee.
