r homes. Many of them live in Southampton During their stay here, they have rendered effectual service to the State and Confederacy. We cannot but notice the noble exertions of the Rev. Wm. A. Smith, in behalf of the Southern cause. His sermons on the "causes and consequences of this war" are both elaborate and eloquent, and never fail to produce a profound sensation among his hearers. The trial of cannon, last evening, was highly satisfactory. One visiting the Navy-Yard in Gosport, cannot fail to recognize the many novel operations engaging the attention of our mechanics. Important movements are being made here vastly beneficial to the State and Confederacy, but which we forbear saying anything about. There is no lack of diligence on the part of the lady population of our city, in contributing to the necessities of the soldier. But we confine these patriotic services not alone to our city or State. Throughout the entire South, our fair women are exhibiting Sp
Fast traveling. --In the Queen's recent journey to Ireland, the total distance from Gosport to Holyhead (310 miles) was accomplished (exclusively of stoppages) in eight and a quarter hours, at an uniform speed of thirty-nine miles an hour.
There are still in Hampton Roads about two thousand men, which were intended for the Burnside expedition, but were unable to get out in consequence of running aground in the Chesapeake during a dense fog. Amongst these is a full regiment of New York Zouaves, who are now aboard the ship John Tucker. Several passengers came up in the Adelaide. They state that the people residing near the Sounds are under the impression that the Burnside Expedition is to operate against Norfolk and Gosport, by cutting off the railroad communication, and that the Confederate forces were awaiting their appearance with a spirit of courageous determination. They state further that all the women and children residing in Norfolk had received orders from the military authorities to leave that place. Officers from Fortress Monroe state that a rumor prevailed there yesterday to the effect that the United States frigate Minnesota and Cumberland were preparing to make an attack on the batteries at
n the foundry we found many articles packed for transportation, and directed to "Charlotte; N. C.," where the rebels will doubtless make their next bonfire. This locality is fruitful in towns. Nearly opposite us we have Norfolk. We are in Gosport, and north and west of us are Portsmouth and Newtown. This cluster of towns is "successionally" located on the edges of a marsh, in which the aquatic grass grows luxuriantly, making an elegant nest for fevers to batch in. This marsh is crossed the largest of this swamp trio, and its Secession proclivities are as rank as the grass in its delectable swamp. Nearly all its stores are closed, its stateliest houses deserted, and its daughters are of the rebels, rebellions. Newtown and Gosport exhibit more loyalty. The former town is producing a good crop of Stars and Stripes May Portsmouth soon do likewise, as it doubtless will, for — our drums are sounding the call for regimental drill; so I must fain drop my pen, and seize my crim

ed American Colonies, as has been pointedly stated by the London Index, a large fleet of privateers was openly built, armed, and manned in the ports of the United States, to cruise against the merchant ships of Spain, and they succeeded so well that, for a time, they almost destroyed the Spanish trade with all parts of the world. During the Texan war many ships were built, armed, and manned for Texas, in New York and New Orleans, and a recruiting station was opened in the very navy-yard of Gosport. During the war of Grecian independence, the Mediterranean swarmed with cruisers fitted out in the United States, to fight against the Turks. No attempt, so far as we know, was ever made to put an end to this practice by the Government of the United States, and the fact approbation which it received, ought to have deprived that Government of all right to complain of other nations in the same particular. Yet we find the British Government active in assisting the Yankee Government to preve
