anding upon what charges and information, and the reason why Mrs. Mitchell had been subjected to the terror and humiliation of an arrest in a foreign State, when alone, instead of at home, where she could always be found, if she had committed any offence against the Government. The Provost Marshal replies that he was not officially instrumental in the matter. Mrs. Mitchell is therefore completely exonerated. Defeat of a guerrilla party. Chicago, August 8. --A dispatch from Trenton, Tenn., says that Captain Peck, with forty-three men of the Sixth Illinois cavalry, sent against Faulkner's cavalry, who have been committing depredations in the vicinity of Humboldt, surprised them while resting sleeping, five miles east of Dyersville, yesterday. Thirty rebels were killed, 55 horses and a great portion of their arms were taken. Most of those who escaped were without arms or clothes. Seven Unionists were wounded; two seriously. Miscellaneous. Hon. Sir Allan Napler M
ho still determine to consider this last movement of Gen. Lee as full of danger. That it is dangerous to a certain extent, is true enough. No military operation ever was, or ever can be, entirely destitute of danger. War itself is a very unsafe game for any man to play and of course none of its moves are perfectly safe.--Washington was thought to be a cautious commander, and to a certain extent he was so. Yet his two movements across the Delaware, resulting respectively in the battles of Trenton and Princeton, were hazardous movements. He had a choice of evils before him on both of these occasions. He could either remain quiet in Philadelphia, with a beaten and disheartened army, and wait for the enemy to besiege him in overwhelming force, which he certainly would have done as soon as the ice broke up, or he could run the risk of being cut off by crossing the Delaware, and carrying the war into the very heart of the enemy's camp. In the first case destruction was slower, but it

after Seward and son? To whom do we owe the decapitation of Burnside and the humiliation of the Yankee buzzard, which the apostles of John Brown are out to apostrophize, in their creations over his gibbeted remains, as the "American eagle?" Nay to go farther back, to whom if not to Gen. Lee, does the illustrious Pope owe it that he is left in full contemplation of his glory in the Siberia of Minnesota? To whom but to him is the "young Napoleon" indebted for his exile to the St. Helena of Trenton, where he has no consolation but to furnish his double to the world through the medium of his faithful Lascassas, Bennet, or his admiring O Meara John Van Buren? We are afraid that it will be but too easy to convict Gen. Lee of all these offences, and we hope President Davis wid punish him as each conduct degerves to be puntabed. It is quite evident to our minds that if the "Young Napoleon" had been allowed to "take Richmond" quietly, his fortunes never would have taken the downward

Disintegration of the Disunited States. From the tone of the following resolution which was unanimously adopted by a Convention of the Democracy of Huntington county, Indiana, on the 8th of December last, it is quite evident that our cousins of the Northwest are beginning to understand and appreciate the virtues of the principle of secession.

The pressure and magnitude of the dangers only supplied new energies of action, and stimulated to redoubled. exertion and in a few days the brilliant achievements of Trenton and Princeton redressed the balance of victory. In every period of the revolutionary contest a large portion of our territory was overrun and occupied by the enemy.
