--The long voyage of the fleet which took home the Prince caused much uneasiness in England. The Prince's birthday was celebrated without him. On that day a young gentleman of respectable appearance and address presented himself at the gate of Castle Hill. The sentinels stopped him, telling him it was the entrance only for the royal family, on which the stranger said"I am the Prince of Wales." The sentinels thinking from his gentlemanly manners that this was the truth, presented arms and permitted him to pass. In this way he passed several sentinels; but in one of the interior passages of the castle he was met by one of the servants, who inquired his business. "I am the Prince of Wales," he said, "and am going to see my mother, the Queen." The servant said he would accompany him, and calling the superintendent, they discovered the stranger to be an insane youth, of some twenty years of age, named Harding, who had been recently discharged from a private lunatic asylum as cured.

I found the troops without tents or baggage wagons. On the fifth, I left for the purpose of procuring these articles and other supplies for them. On application to the Quartermaster for tent cloth, I was told it could not be furnished, as the employees of Government could make up their supplies as fast as obtained. I then went on to Halifax, reaching Black Walnut midday on Saturday. Of a few persons met with at the P. O. that afternoon, donations of some $400 to $500 were obtained. Rev. Mr. Harding, pastor of the Presbyterian Church in the neighborhood, kindly invited me to be present at his church next day, the only place in the neighborhood at which preaching was to be had on that day. Friends went to work among those assembled. After preaching, some statements were made by me. Dr. Wm. Covington addressed the congregation and a contribution was made; upon casting-up the amount it was found to exceed, including previous pledges, $1,000, in property and money. Three gentlemen ga
ent would readily entertain any proposition from the Government of the United States tending to a peaceful solution of the pending difficulties the recent attempts of this Government to enter into negotiations with that of the United States were attended with results which forbid any renewal of proposals from it to that Government. If any further assurance of the desire of this Government for peace were necessary, it would be sufficient to observe that, being formed of a confederation of sovereign States, each acting and deciding for itself, the right of every other sovereign State to the same self-action and self-government is necessarily acknowledged. Hence conquests of other States are wholly inconsistent with the fundamental principles, and subversive of the very origination of this Government. Its policy cannot but be peace — peace with all nations and people. Very respectfully, Jeff. Davis. Messrs. McLaig, Yellott and Harding, Committee of Maryland Legislature.

mong the Lincolnites; the artillerymen stood up to their work bravely. One of the guns was fired by Sergeant Wm. Ball, and the other by Wm. D. Drish, Jr.; after firing some forty rounds, and the enemy running off from their post, our men stopped for the day. None of our boys were hurt; several of the enemy are reported to have been shot. Col. Hunton was at the Ferry during the entire day. Capt. Rogers was on hand dividing his time between the battery at the Ferry and the battery at Goose Creek. On Tuesday the enemy again appeared at both Conrad's and Edward's Ferry. At the latter place the enemy have heavy cannon, and at which point the rest of Capt. Rogers' command have been stationed. On Tuesday evening Mr. Harding, a member of the artillery stationed at Conrad's Ferry, after having shot with a rifle two of the enemy, was himself shot in the thigh by a large sized musket ball. He was brought to town by Dr. Wm. F. Luckett, who extracted the ball and dressed the wound.
in facts. Capt. Magoffin, a Southern officer, lately arrested at Georgetown, Mo., has been tried, and, it is rumored, sentenced to be hung. Eighteen prisoners arrived at St. Louis on Friday evening, in custody of a military chard, from Colonel Harding's camp at Franklin. They were captured from the surrounding district by the expedition sent off by Colonel Harding. Among the prisoners are several St. Louis men, who were taken while on their way to join the rebel forces. A military Colonel Harding. Among the prisoners are several St. Louis men, who were taken while on their way to join the rebel forces. A military commission for the trial of offences against the military laws of General Fremont's division has been organized at St. Louis, Major (now Brigadier-General) Sturgis presiding. Among the prisoners brought before this commission was John M. Graves, apparently about sixty years of age, a native of the State of Georgia, and for the past thirty-five years has acted as editor of newspapers in different parts of the country. His last effort in this direction was in Nebraska, but previously he edited

Gen. Price's pickets extend to within eight miles of Georgetown, (67 miles from Jefferson City,) keeping him well posted regarding our movements. The Rev. Louis Republican learns that a statement is forthcoming from Col. Harding, in the absence of the General commanding this department, which will show beyond question the absolute impossibility of aid being rendered by Gen. Fremont before the battle of Wilson's Creek. Washington items. Washington, Oct. 1. --The Kentucky cavalry regiment is still without an officially recognized Colonel. A petition is in circulation recommending Lieut. Colonel Owens for the command. Prince Salm Salm was sometime ago appointed, but at his own request a change has

She goes to Milford to be repaired, and will as soon as completed resume her position between Liverpool and New York. The City of Washington's news has been anticipated by the Norwegian, at Quebec; but the details that we are able to obtain Hermann without loss of any kind. The three cannon, mentioned in a previous dispatch, belonged to the rebels. Col. Harding now telegraphs from Hermann that the he had no apprehensions of an attack on that place, and that the Gasconade and Osange bridges are well guarded, and secure against the rebels.
