Fremont and his proclamation. The Louisville Courier, of the 2d instant, has a long and able article on the progress of despotism in Missouri, in which it thus deals with Fremont and his proclamation: Major General Fremont, known to the country principally by his insubordination and peculations in California during the Mexican war, and as the representative of the idea of the abolition of those "twin relics of barbarism, slavery and polygamy," in the Presidential canvass of '56, has issued a proclamation in which he assumes all the administrative powers of the State, establishes martial law throughout its limits, supersedes the constitution and civil law, confiscates property at his discretion, consigns all persons who may disregard his despotic commands to the tender mercies of a drum-head court- martial — the members of which act as persecutors, judges and jurors — and subjects his victimes to "sudden and severe" punishments at his discretion — a proclamation in which he a<

Gov. Magoffin to Gov. Harris. Executive Department, August 12, 1861. His Excellency I. G. Harris, Governor of Tenn.: Sir: I have just returned from the neighborhood of the military encampment to which you have been pleased to call my attention in your letter to me of the 4th inst., and am truly gratified to inform you that the organization is disapproved of by a large majority of the Union men with whom I have conversed, some of them being the most prominent citizens of our State. The persons engaged in it have given the most solemn assurances they do not intend an invasion of Tennessee, or any hostile purposes in that direction, but have organized solely for the purpose of protecting the State from invasion. Many of them believe, or affect to believe, there is great danger of an invasion from Tennessee. I have taken steps to prevent the organization of these troops, or their encampment upon our soil, with strong hopes of success; and your Excellency may rest assured I w
One hundred Dollars reward. --Ranaway from the subscriber, on the 6th instant at Vienna, Virginia, a Mulatto Boy named Sam. Said Boy is about 20 years of age, 5 feet 5 or 6 inches high. He had on when he left a pair of white oznaburg pants and a checked shirt; no coat; is rather slow spoken; no particular marks remembered. The above reward will be given for sufficient proof to convict any white person of assisting said Boy in effecting his escape; or twenty-five Dollars will be paid for his safe delivery either to myself or in any jail where I can get him.

From Gen. Lee's command. --A private letter from a member of Gen. Lee's command dated September 1st,says: "We had a skirmish with the Yankees on the 29th ultimo Forty of our men pursued 200 Yankees, killing two and wounding four. The enemy ran so fast that our men could not keep up with them. They left guns, knapsacks and everything they had; one was even seen sons culottes. We took one prisoner, a good looking fellow and rather smart. He says the Yankees will not attack us unless they have five to one."
The sugar crop of 1861. --We copy the following interesting statement from the Franklin (La.) Banner, of the 31st ult.: There have been many speculations of late in relation to the growing sugar crop, as to its probable amount, the demand and the prices. As to the amount, if no storms or other unforeseen disasters occur to injure the crop, it will doubtless reach over 400,000 hhds. The crop is generally good through all the sugar-growing parishes. Under favorable circumstances, it may come up to 500,000 hhds. But half that amount this year would yield more profit to the planter than he could realize from a full crop. The West in prosperous times consumes 300,000 hhds. of Louisiana sugar. The blockade has cut off this market. Portions of Missouri and Kentucky will obtain a small amount, but the blockaded States will be the principal consumers. Texas can get no Louisiana sugar, except those portions that get their supplies through the Red River navigation. But she
