Col. Fauntleroy. --This gallant and distinguished officer, who has but recently resigned his commission as Colonel of the 1st Regiment of U. S. Dragoons, arrived at his home in this place on the 7th inst., from Santa Fe, New Mexico, after 36 days of unceasing travel, by day and by night. Pausing here not long enough for his friends to greet him, he has proceeded to Richmond to report for duty in the service of Virginia. Col.Fauntleroy, only a few days before he left New Mexico, concluded a Treaty of Peace with the Navajo Indians--a wealthy and powerful tribe of savages whose mountain region of country had always hitherto afforded them a safe and easy retreat from the pursuit of the United States troops. In October last Col. F. invaded their country with eighteen separate columns of troops, entering at different points and penetrating to the very heart of their territory. The campaign was carried on with vigor and success during the whole winter, through deep snows and wi

Hustings Court and sentenced to six months imprisonment in the city jail, for attempting to pick Col. John Dickinson's pocket on the cars. After the fellow had been in jail several months, a requisition was received from Wm.F. Packer, then acting as the Governor of the State of Pennsylvania, claiming the prisoner, under the name of Edward Livingston, as a fugitive from justice, he having committed a petty larceny in Berks county, in that State. The man's term of imprisonment expires on the 18th. Since he has been in jail the political status of the country has been changed. Virginia is now a foreign country, so far as Pennsylvania is concerned. Whether the man shall be given up or not, in the absence of a treaty on that subject between the custodians of his person, is a matter of discretion with Gov. Letcher. He may or may not be given up. Being under duress he could be disposed of in any way. The Lincolnites have inaugurated the doctrine that "might makes right." Mr. Curtin, no
Suspicious character. --Two individuals, calling themselves Augustus J. Kuck and Adolph Zehler, were carried before the Mayor yesterday, as persons of evil name, fame and reputation, and for expressing opinions injurious to the interests of this Commonwealth. The extent of their transgression did not appear, as they were committed without examination till this morning. Wm. Christian, who was arrested a few days ago as a suspicious character, was committed until the 19th inst., when provision will be made for sending him out of the State. Clinton Kennedy, arrested on a similar charge, was committed in default of $150 bail.

Williamson, hitherto two staunch supporters of the Union; but now that the mask of deception has fallen and revealed the fiendish policy of the Administration to subjugate or annihilate the brave sons of the South, they stand prepared to "do, dare or die" in defence of Southern rights. The Convention assembles in Raleigh, on the 20th inst., when, I confidently expect, North Carolina will formally assert her independence without a dissenting voice, and add another bright gem to the banner of our home. On the 20th of May, 1775, the freemen of Mecklenburg declared their independence of England, and on the 20th of May, 1861, the gallant freemen of the whole State will throw off the galling yoke of tyranny imposed by the miserable descendants of Puritanism — We now virtually stand alone in the scrutinizing eye of the civiliz

Remember the day of election. Thursday, the 23d, is that day. Let no wars nor rumors of wars prevent a single voter in the Commonwealth from depositing his vote. If necessary, let Ballots and Bullets be the order of the day.
