a citizen of a cotton State, and yet states the total exports of the South at forty-odd millions less than her actual export of the single staple. The amount of Southern exports is, as to the greater portion of it, a matter of ascertained fact, beyond conjecture, and there is no excuse for ignorance on the subject. We published a month or two ago, on our fourth page, from the Atlanta (Ga.) Banner, a statement in detail of the exports of the United States for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1866 The statement was prepared for that west by a distinguished citizen of that town, the Hon. Howell Cobb, late Secretary of the United States Treasury, and was compiled from the official returns on the subject, all of which are to be found in the last Annual Report of the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States. We shall repeat the statement from the Banner. The total exports of the "growth, product, and manufacture of the United States," exclusively of gold and foreign goods

y months past, arrived in Richmond on yesterday. Captain R., who was in the recruiting service here several years ago, will be remembered as the officer who first instructed the Governor's Guard in their duty as soldiers — instructions which their services in the field of battle since shows was not forgotten by them. As various reports have been in circulation relative to his remaining in the Federal army, we deem it but just to him to state that, as soon as the first news of the capture of Fort Sumter reached him, Captain R. addressed letters to Mr. John M. Patton and others, in this city, requesting his friends to be informed that he would be with them as soon as the snows of the Rocky Mountains would permit him to travel. He left Utah, (where he has been on duty as Assistant Adjutant General,) with his family, on the 2d of June, and has been travelling ever since. Captain R. has returned to offer his services to his native State in any capacity in which he can be most useful.

terposed, and, by paying the little bill, released the chairs and tables. Those who know Mr. Tucker most intimately are loud in their indignation. There are many private letters here from Virginia, all telling the same story of prosperity and high hopes, troops well fed and promptly paid. A lady living within seven miles of Manassas writes that the great Parrott siege gun taken by the Confederates in the fight, now bears two inscriptions, thus: On one side, "Pills for Rebels," U. S., July 7. On the other, "Return to plague the Inventor," "C. S., July 27." [We do not credit the report in reference to Mr. Beverly Tucker.--Eds.] The case of Mr. Ely. The correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer says: I am able to state that the story of Mr. Ely having been employed in ditching, or in any other menial employment, in entirely untrue. He has been uniformly well treated, and has fared sumptuously every day. Surgeon Norval, of the N. Y. 79th, brought a letter from

England and the blockade — a serious Threat.[from the London Shipping Gazette, Aug. 1] The blockade of the Southern States and the manner which it is effected by the Federal squadron are circumstances which have begun to attract considerable attention in this country, and can hardly fail to lead to some decided course of actio war, or the intervention of other Powers, seem at the moment our only prospect of escape from serious social and commercial trials. England and France United and in Accord on the American question.[Paris correspondence of the London post--August 1.] The civil war in America, it is believed, is about to consolidate and cement still closer the alliance between England and France. The British Cabinet, it is to-day announced, is in close and constant correspondence with that of the Tuiler

We publish on the first page of to-day's paper copious extracts from English journals on American Affairs. The London Herald, from which we copy an editorial, in another portion of the article denominates the blockade of the Southern ports"thoroughly inefficient and contemptible," while other English papers call on both France and England to unite in action for its annihilation if it is not effective, as they assert it is not. We continue our extracts: [From the London Times, August 1.] Work, and not display, is now the order of things in the United States. The real business of war has begun, and men have already forgotten the phase of speech-making and flag-waving, of calls for universal sympathy, and anger at not obtaining it. It is a relief to find that the captiousness and irritability with regard to this country which marked the first weeks of the war have almost passed away. The course taken by the British Government is now recognized as most just and fittin

The "efficient" blockade. The New York Journal of Commerce publishes the following extract of a letter to a merchant of that city, dated London, August 2d: "Osborne (Donegal, No. 101) is ordered to the North American station. We are preparing enormous reinforcements to protect British commerce against a blockade which is both illegal and inefficient. "There are only ten weeks consumption of cotton in the country. "Even if you should whip Gen. Beauregard, he has only to retire and await events. "There is no possibility of getting a loan here, so Mr. Chase must depend on what he can get at home.".

the country to peace as soon as possible. Not only do the results of our battles, but our relations with foreign powers teach us this. Every week our affairs abroad are becoming more complicated and critical, and unless we see more energy and determination on the part of the Administration; matters will soon arrive at such a crisis that we shall not only have to fight the rebels, but the allied fleets of England and France. The American Crisis considered.[from the Liverpool mercury, Aug. 2d.] The doctrine of secession is a third instance in which Europe (and the North too, in this case) holds views contrary to American, though not to European, ideas of government. Here, again, if we would purane truth and arrive at correct conclusions, American political questions must be judged by American principles. As every one knows, those principles were laid down three-quarters of a century ago, in the Declaration of Independence, and every year since that period this famous stateme

e money broker to embark in such an enterprise. If they do, it must be thoroughly understood that the transaction is risked entirely upon their own responsibility. In any case, it must be fully understood that the English nation and its responsible Government cannot be asked to put themselves out of the way in order to collect debts which a fern Englishmen have allowed the United States Government to incur for their own profit and at their own risk. [from London Herald, (city article) Aug. 3.] Any attempt to raise money for the Federal Government should be resisted, and the feeling among capitalists is certainly averse to supporting such an operation. The agents of powerful banking firms in New York have already arrived in this country, and others, it is stated, will follow, with the express object of endeavoring to negotiate terms for placing a part of stock to be created. If the public, however, will only do themselves justice, they possess now a most brilliant opportunit

and unless an immediate check be placed upon these usurpations no remnant of our once free government will remain to us. The following is an extract from a letter from Maine, to the editors of the New York Journal of Commerce: Bangor, Aug. 10--Messrs. Editors: A great reaction in public sentiment is now rolling over the State of Maine. In almost every county, town and hamlet the people, in their Conventions and primary meetings, are deploring the unhappy state of the country, and deg shoes, have been found. It is said that this cargo is one of a number which are to be sent South in the hope of running the blockade, and filling a contract with the Confederates for a million pairs of shoes, at $1.18 per pair. New York, Aug. 10.--Yesterday morning, George N. Saunders, late navy agent at this port, was declared a defaulter to the Government to the amount of $21,000, and the U. S. District Attorney issued a process against the sureties of Saunders to respond in accordance
