ceived that enlistments for the increase of the personnel of the Navy are so successful that the necessary number will soon be supplied. The Secretary of the Navy is assiduous in hurrying forward the measures of the blockade, and informs his friends that by this time Charleston and the Savannah river experience its effects. The steamer Niagara and other vessels will similarly operate at New Orleans. Speaking of the commerce of the Mississippi, the Memphis Bulletin of the 12th instant says: The blockade at Cairo will operate in more ways than one. The ostensible object is to prevent the export of provisions and munitions of war from the Northwestern to the Southwestern States. But it will be equally effective in preventing the exports from the latter in return. So far as we know and believe, the supply of provisions in the South is abundant, and was never more so at this season of the year. Certain we are, from the most reliable information, that there is food
War Movements. The Alexandria Gazette, of yesterday, has the following: Harper & Ferry. May 13--The greatest activity prevails here, and the force is daily increasing by accessions from every part of the country. Active measures are in progress to make the place perfectly secure in the event of an attack. The hills surrounding the place are strongly fortified with heavy batteries, to be simply supported and sustained by the noble Rangers, recently arrived from Kentucky. The officers and men are in fine health and spines, and fully ready for the tray. All the professions are represented in the range of the Virginia forces now here — lawyers, doctors and preachers have left their respective callings, and perform camp and guard duty, and handle the musket in such a way as to have no doubt of the determined spirit with which they have espoused the cause of Virginia. many of the residents of the place have removed in anticipation of a conflict.

of war. The liberality is explained in the following paragraph from the News: A great parade, in the papers, is being made by some of our banks about the money advanced by them for war purposes, and large claims to patriotism and generosity appear to be founded upon such subscriptions. Such a bank has given so many thousands, and such a one so much, say the war papers. The fact is the banks are only investing in stocks of the State of New York. A dispatch from Frankfort, Ky., May 11, gives the following proceedings of the Kentucky Legislature: Mr. Machen, from the House Committee on Military Affairs, yesterday reported in the Kentucky Legislature a bill appropriating something near six millions of dollars for military purposes, and the organization of a standing army of 10,000 men, with proper portions of artillery and cavalry, and a reserve force of 50,000 Mr. Under wood offered a resolution that the bill be recommitted, with instructions to limit the appropriati

In each county arming the muskets to be purchased shall be distributed. The Union men will support Mr. Under wood's proposition, while the Secessionists will adhere to that of Mr. Machen. In the news telegraphed North from Washington, May 12, is the following: The preparations having been completed for an effective blockade of Virginia waters, Capt. Pendergrast has given the precautionary notice of fifteen days for all vessels to leave the ports of that State, either with or without cargoes. Several of the foreign ministers, and some of our own countrymen, have asked for an extension of the time, but this in every case has been refused. The order will be adhered to impartially. Certain persons, though representing t

My informant, a resident of Washington county, says that about fifty rifles are daily turned out. The troops are encamped in all directions about the Ferry. A large force of Kentuckians and Virginians have been stationed on the Maryland shore, and have formed a camp in the vicinity of the old school house in which John Brown stored his arms the night prior to One of the Kentuckians was accidentally shot through the ankle this morning by a revolver which fell from his belt and exploded.

d was a serious one, and his foot had to be amputated. A company of forty men, the advance guard of a large force, arrived at the Ferry from Tennessee this morning. It was rumored among the troops there that a regiment of six hundred men from Louisiana would arrive in a day or two. Squads of Baltimoreans pass the junction at Monocacy daily, on their way to Harper's Ferry or Richmond. A battalion of Baltimoreans, six hundred strong, will rendezvous Richmond in a few days. Capt. J. Lyle Clark, of the Independent Greys, was mentioned as their commander. A squad of eight men from the Forest Rangers, of Pikesville, passed here this morning on their way to Virginia. They were under the command of Capt. Nichols. A correspondent of the New York Commercial than makes known the views and intentions of Commodore Pendergrast: Commodore Pendergrast, flag-officer of the Cumberland, which lies at Old Point Comfort, is fully up to the work of keeping the blockade a rigid o
ll the Southwestern States will concur in the propriety of perpetuating the policy of river blockade, which has been inaugurated just at the right time for us.--The States above us cannot reasonably complain that the navigation of the Mississippi river is not free to them, when they have been the first to interrupt it; and they must expect that the example they have set us will be followed by the South renewing the blockade as soon as it shall be suspended by them. The same paper says: The steamer H. D. Mears arrived yesterday afternoon from Vicksburg, having on board tour military companies from Arkansas, as follows: Etonia Guards, Capt. Martin, from Pulaski county, numbering 70 men; Crockett Guards, Capt. Crockett, Arkansas county, numbering 116 men; DeWitt Guards, Capt. Quartermans, Arkansas county, numbering 70 men; Monticello Guards, Capt. Jackson, Drew county, numbering 103 men. These companies make a handsome and imposing appearance, and are en route for Lynchburg.

re of the steam gun: The steam gun captured on Friday has been stationed in the camp of the Sixth (Mass) Regiment, and on Saturday it was understood an exhibition of its powers would be given; but a very unfortunate circumstance interfered with the arrangement. Some very material and indispensable parts of the machinery were found wanting, and the steam gun, that all had come to look upon as a death. dealing engine, stood as harmless as an old It now turns out that the inventor, Mr. Dickinson, who was not taken with the gun, lead with him in a buggy, a short distance off, all the important parts of the machinery used in the working of the gun, and escaped with them by driving rapidly away. The Alexandria Gazette thus puts a stop to the slander upon the Irish volunteers of that city: The rumor which has obtained publication that desertions were occurring in the Irish volunteer companies lately formed in this city, are entirely without foundation. The irish are tru

He is in favor of this as a matter of instant action, by the assumption of some responsibility if need be, instead of waiting till the Virginians have entrenched themselves so as to render their dislodgment difficult. The prosecution of the Commodore's views depends very much on whether he can obtain the co-operation of Col. Dimmick at Fortress Monroe. The Baltimore Sun furnishes some additional information about the capture of the steam gun: The steam gun captured on Friday has been stationed in the camp of the Sixth (Mass) Regiment, and on Saturday it was understood an exhibition of its powers would be given; but a very unfortunate circumstance interfered with the arrangement.

The picturesque and romantic hills of his hitherto quite and secluded place, may soon reverberate the thunder of deep tones of country, and the waters of the Potomac and Shenandoah be reddened with fratricidal should the impolitic and coercive policy of the Administration as marked out by Mr. Seward be observed and carried out.--We trust, however, that better councils may prevail, and no blood be shed. The Rev. S. S. Rozeil, Richard H. Dulany, and others, of London county, learning that the Kentucky volunteers, recently arrived at Harper's Ferry, needed supplies, loaded a team with provisions and forwarded it at to their relief — an example worthy of all ation.
