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<
Gunboats. --The Hindsboro' (Miss.) Democrat, of the 3d instant, says that "the Military Board ordered nine launches and one large gunboat to be built on the coast; the gunboat to be two hundred and fifty tons burden, for the protection of the Sound. The construction of these boats is under the immediate supervision of General Dahlgren, now at Pass Christian."
Gen. Ruggles. --Brig. Gen. Daniel Ruggles, who has been assigned to duty at Pensacola, arrived there on the 4th inst.
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.

ked-of doctrine of neutrality. It is also rumored that the Confederate forces under General Polk are at Columbus and Hickman. Doubtless they had intelligence of the enemy's design to occupy Paducah, and determined to break up a very pretty plan of Gen. Grant to invade Tennessee from that direction. He has been thus effectually checkmated by the vigilance and energy of our Generals. We hope to see our cause pressed with equal energy in other quarters. The Memphis Appeal, of the 8th inst., says: General Pillow, having returned from Missouri, took charge of the Confederate forces at Union City, and being joined by a portion of his command from Missouri, on yesterday advanced upon Columbus, Ky., which place he occupied without resistance. The Federal troops had taken their stand opposite, on the west bank of the river, a few days since, apparently with the design of fortifying themselves there; but are understood to have moved higher up in the direction of Norfolk, Mis
Still farther on the hills grow larger and steeper, until they run into a chain of continued hills that lie opposite the cities of Washington and Georgetown. Taking the Centreville road, one soon comes to the site of the battle of the 18th near Blackburn's Ford. On the Manassas side there is a broad meadow and a long line of intervale land, but across the Run there is a steep cliff covered with a dense pine thicket. It was here that the Washington Artillery did such good service on the 18th. There are few signs of the battle left to attract notice. The graves of the Federalists are visible still; but everything in the shape of balls, broken guns, cartridge boxes, haversacks, et cetera, have been removed as relics by curiosity hunters. A great many canes have been cut from the spot and even the stones have been carried away. A short distance beyond the thicket is a small house, near which the Federals planted their large gun on the morning of the 21st and commenced fi
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
tenden resolutions as amendments to the Constitution; let him call an extra session of the new Congress, and in his first message boldly reiterate this plan and its submission at once to the people through the States; let him appoint his Cabinet, but not dispose of another office in his gift till this great and overwhelming question is settled." Bennett continued to speak of the two Presidents in the same tone, until the visitation of the mob, which took place, we believe, some time in April. That enlightened body effected a change in his sentiments, which will remain without revulsion until the Southern army shall have established its head quarters at the St. Nicholas, or in some of the palaces on Tenth Avenue. Perhaps even then the pity and contempt of Beauregard and Johnston may allow him to proceed in his present strain. We advise these Generals beforehand, not to interfere with him if he should abuse them. But above all things, let them not permit him to praise them. Th
