take part in a civil war, there are not a few of them who think they should have been consulted. This feeling probably finds the freest expression among the members of the celebrated Seventh Regiment, the officers of which will probably unite in an address to the Major General, in the course of a few days, gently reminding him that they are citizens as well as soldiers, and have a "will" to be consulted in such cases, as well as orders to be obeyed. Interesting Incidents in Charleston harbor. A correspondent of the Baltimore American, who has visited the fortifications in the harbor of Charleston, narrates some interesting incidents connected therewith. He says: At starting we had on board, in addition to the party of gentlemen in the suite of officials, going the rounds of the forts, about one hundred and fifty or two hundred hearty, strong negro men, intended for laborers on Sullivan's Island.

The columbiads spiked and burned by Anderson, are all, with the exception of three, remounted on new carriages, unspiked, and as good as ever. Several of the merlons erected upon the parapet to protect the guns bearing on Sumter are completed.--The work is done in a most masterly manner. Barrels and bags of sand are so disposed and evenly packed as to give a solid masonry-like appearance. The merlons are very thick and impenetrable, and afford great security to the artillerists behind them. The process of constructing this sort of defence is in this manner: The bomb-proof surface of the parapet is turned up and rows of barrels of sand are pl

with. He says: At starting we had on board, in addition to the party of gentlemen in the suite of officials, going the rounds of the forts, about one hundred and fifty or two hundred hearty, strong negro men, intended for laborers on Sullivan's Island. These fellows chattered and jabbered their peculiar negro lingo with infinite delight at the prospect of becoming, as they termed it, "Roger's to fight for Sonny Carline." Rolled up in huge knots, wherever the sun shone, they dozed away ied with large, comfortable blankets, strapped to the shoulders in military style, and most of them carried besides a quantity of baggage. Their destination, I learned, was not to the fort, but to the works of defence above Moultrie, on Sullivan's Island. An extensive cause way is here being constructed to connect with the main land, and upon this, as upon the redoubts now being thrown up on the island, a very large force of negroes is employed.

The clerical suicide. --The suicide of the Rev. R. C. Rice, of Eminence, Ky., at Cincinnati, has been noticed. It appears that he had been twice married, and his second union was not productive of happiness; an estrangement sprung up between him and his wife, which induced, on his part, melancholy, and finally resulted in the rash act by which he terminated his existence. The following note was found on the table in his room at the hotel directed to Mayor Bishop: "Please have my poor body put in a genteel case, and sent, without molestation, to Eminence, Kentucky, where I hope it will be laid beside my dear Eliza.
