An official negro minstrel. --Lieut. Pendergrass, of the Seventy-first Regiment of New York, who with twenty-two of his men worked one of the guns of the Anacosta, on the occasion of the recent attack upon Aquia Creek, is a member of Bryant's band of negro minstrels. He is also the proprietor of a New York "rum mill" and gambling hell — the headquarters of John C. Heenan, the Benicia Boy, and the bristle-headed fraternity of fighters generally. He is a little man with a very large voice, a pock marked face, and never more in his element than under a nigger wig, and a physiognomy of burnt cork, dangling away his part in a minstrel performance, upon a triangle.--Such is the "elite" of the New York Seventy-first.
Maria Buck (search for this): article 23
A half-witted darkey calling herself Maria Buck, was arrested and carried to the City Hall yesterday, for not having a certificate of her freedom. She said she was a resident of Rocketts old field, and promising to move in that direction speedily, the Mayor directed her discharge.
uld see their way clear to either a separation of the Union, a close of the war, or a full supply of cotton for the next two years. Now, you may mark my words, and you will find them true, just as certain as the sun continues to shine on you, if Mr. Lincoln's Government, sustained as it is by the twenty millions of Northern people, does not make a forced march right through secession within four or five months, completely regardless of climate, season and all other circumstances, then John Bull will have a finger in the pie, and the Frenchman, too, and you will have three wars on your hands instead of one. A Napoleonic stroke — a campaign like that which culminated at Marengo — a sudden striking into the heart of the enemy's country — is the only mode you have got to conquer a peace and keep out foreign interference. This overbearing nation has had a hand in every national quarrel in Europe for hundreds of years, and now that the United States have begun to assume a pos<

the opinion that some of them had been "hanged already," and feared the consequence of the conversation that had taken place, which, by the way, his own interpellations gave rise to. All this means cotton, cotton, cotton, and a greedy craving, on the part of the aristocracy and governing classes of Great Britain, to humble a nation, become a first class Power in the world through the force of democratic institutions. The insidious representations of Lord Lyons, similar to those of Sir Henry Bulwer, some years ago, have contributed to confirm the idea that the United States can be insulted, and her wishes disregarded, with perfect impunity. The press of London, and, to a still greater degree, that of the manufacturing districts of England, has fallen into a panic respecting the probable effect upon trade of a blockade of the Southern ports; and the conjuncture is deemed a favorable one to decry and villify us, and hold us up to the world as destitute of either energy or strength.

Accidental Sheeting. --An accident occurred yesterday about 4 o'clock at the pistol gallery, corner of 14th and Main streets, by which Mr. James L. Smither, dry goods merchant of this city, was dangerously wounded by a ball discharged from a Colt's pistol in the bands of Mr. Jos. Brummel. Messrs. B. and S. were at the gallery trying their own pistols; S. was standing on one side, and B. having just discharged one barrel of his pistol, was in the act of replacing it in his pocket, when one of the barrels was by some means discharged, the ball striking S. in the abdomen, passing across and lodging in the muscular part. Dr. Burton, who was in attendance, probed the wound and gives the opinion that the ball did not enter the cavity of the stomach, which leaves considerable room to hope that S. will get over the wound. Sundry gentlemen were standing in a group with Mr. S. when the ball struck him.

the times, that ramification will be the order of the day. On that subject, more anon. Our people are full of patriotism and chivalry, and it would not be amiss for me here to state that gentlemen of this place, who hung to the Union with so much love and tenacity, with a lingering hope of its preservation upon terms of equality, that they stood firm upon the last plank of the wreck, but grasping Sic Semper Tyrannis, are now heart, soul and body, using their influence and means in perfecting an organization touching the Southern cause. Philip Williams, D. W. Burton, T. T. Fauntleroy, Esq., and the indefatigable editor of the Winchester Republican, and last, not least, the gallant Palmer of the Virginian, who advocated the secession of Virginia at an early period — such are the men, with a host of others, who are determined to do or die, sharing a common destiny with the yeomanry of old Frederick, Virginia, and the galaxy that forms the glorious Confederate States. Frederick.
Gen. Cadwallader. We had supposed that Gen. Cadwallader, who succeeded Gen. Butler in command at Baltimore, was a gentleman, if not a soldier. Some of the Baltimore journals were disposed to congratulate themselves and the public generally upperty without warrant of law; or commit any of the outrages upon private rights which had disgraced the administration of Butler. Better things might be expected from Gen. Cadwallader--at least so said, and doubtless thought these journals, and many s scarcely necessary now to say. The South declares that Cadwallader will leave a name in Baltimore as hateful as that of Butler, for whilst he had the tact to avoid making himself personally obnoxious to the citizens, he has contrived to make the liter, a robbery which was more bare-faced, and less defensible, even under the tyrant's plea of necessity, than any act of Butler's--who confined his seizures to military arms belonging to the city, or suspected to be actually in course of transshipme
e Naval Brigade, who proceeded on to Washington to have an interview with the Government in relation to the refusal of Gen. Butler to muster them into the service. The objection of Gen. B. to the brigade is that they are so poorly equipped and disciplined as to be of no service to him in a military capacity. The men, on hearing of Gen. Butler's decision, became greatly dissatisfied, and many of them at one time became some what beyond control. About fifty of them have already been sent back to New York. General Butler had made no advance movement from his encampment on James river He has now under his command some eight or nine thousand men. This force was expected to be increased during the week by three or four thousand more tro Colonel Bartlett, who is much better, goes to Washington to-night with several of his officers. This is the best General Butler can do for them. It is believed that the brigade was ordered back to New York, partly on account of a misunderst
