nt Van-Buren, A dispatch from Kinderhook, dated July 19th, says ex-President Martin Van-Buren was then in sensible and dying. He was in the 81st year of his age. A letter to the New York Tribune says: Previous to the wandering of his mind, and once or twice since, when reason returned, Mr. Van Buren has evinced the most lively and patriotic interest in the affairs of the country. No longer since than Tuesday, when the day before he was hardly expected to survive, he inquired of Dr. Pruyn how the good work of crushing the rebellion was going on, and was very particular to learn if the public confidence in the President and Gen. McClellan was yet firm and unshaken, as he thought it should be.--He appeared much gratified when answered in the affirmative. He has continually denounced the course of Buchanan's administration from the first, but has expressed the utmost confidence in that of Mr. Lincoln. The war, he thinks, is justly and as vigorously as possible carried on — t

A lisp of sympathy for Morgan or the rebellion was as much as a man's life was worth. The 85th Ohio, Col. Sowers, from Camp Chase, arrived on Monday, to the infinite relief of the inhabitants. They were received with the greatest enthusiasm. Other reinforcements came pouring in. Brigadier General Ward, commandant of the post, made preparations for an asailles, his men so fagged out that they slept in the streets, with their horses' bridles on their arms, was not a movement made simultaneously from Frankfort, Lexington, and Nicholasville? At the first-named place were the Eighty-fifth Ohio, Col. Sowers; the Fifty fifth Indiana battalion, Col. Mohen; two or three pieces of artillery, quite a body of regular troops, and mounted men sufficient for scouting and flanking purposes.

Cameron's Presentation to the Emperor of Russia. [From the Harrisburg Telegraph] From private letters received in this city direct from St. Petersburg, we learn that Gen. Cameron, Minister to Russia, had safely arrived at the capital of the nation, where his legation is established, and that he also had his first interview with the Emperor Alexander. According to the rigid etiquette of the Russian Court, it is not usual for the Emperor to giant an interview until the lapse of some time aftor can there be any misapprehension concerning the deep interest he manifests in the success and destiny of the United States. This feeling was reciprocated by Mr. Cameron, who had the most flattering assurances to offer that the interest of the American people was no less sincere in their solicitude for the success and mighty pro

Dr. Rice, Benjamin Daniels, and John Barnes, respectable citizens, were hung last night at Tennessee Ridge, twenty-five miles from Nashville, for entertaining men employed in reconstructing telegraph lines.

With these proofs to sustain him, Gen. Arnold sent the lady to Fort Pickens, where she is at present incarcerated. The health of the troops was good, and every preparation has been made to give the rebels a warm reception whenever they approach. The conduct of Wilson's Zouaves, in dividing their rations with the indigent Union people of the city, has won golden opinions for them. The regulars, with whom the Zouaves were while at Santa Rosa Island at enmity, are now on the most cordial terms. The Yankee Canal at Vicksburg a failure. The "Off Vicksburg" correspondent of the Chicago Tribune pronounces the canal to cut that town off a failure. He says: It is not a canal, but simply a ditch.

What further damage was done is not ascertained. The injuries to our fleet are light. The Benton received a shot near the edge of the after part of the larboard sid, killing one man. The Tyler, which engaged the Arkansas nearly an hour and a half, had seven killed and nine wounded. Among the latter were the pilots Messrs. Sebastian and Hiner, and Engineer Davis. The ram Lancaster received a shot under her boilers, causing an escape of hot water, scalding six men, three of them fatally. The entire Union loss is twelve killed and fifteen wounded, five or six of whom will die. The rebel loss is not known, but believed to be considerable, as the hot water streams of the Carondelet, at the time they attempted to board, were thrown directly into her. From Gen.

on the road might have been saved by posting infantry in position to defend them.--But there was such a tenacity to the defensive system that it was not done. It was deemed more important to endure an interruption of communication than to risk the safety of a town. The place to fight Morgan was at the city gates; besides, who could think of marching infantry under such a sun? When I left Frankfort, cavalry, artillery and infantry were pouring into the city by every train.--Brigadier-General Clay Smith had arrived to take command, and as he is said to be a man of spirit, with daring and dash in his composition, and military capacity, perhaps something may happen.--There are regular and irregular troops in and about Lexington and Frankfort to eat up John and his thieves, and not furnish half rations at that. It will be a blistering shame if he is allowed to escape after having plundered and despoiled the fairest portion of Kentucky. The people are willing to second the enter

What is really notable in the criticisms of the London press on the battles in front of Richmond is (bat, while there is not a whisper of intervention, the seven days action is construed as a defeat to the National cause. Even our staunch friend, the London News which has always taken the most enlightened and liberal view of the campaign, characterizes the late action as "a serious reverse to the Feder
