ealed by the buildings. The evacuation of West Point. The evacuation of West Point has something to do, perhaps, with the present pillaging raid of the Yankees up the Peninsula. Correspondence from Yorktown, of the 6th, shows that the force there consisted of the 4th Delaware, 169th New York; and the 169th and 179th Pennsylvania. What the force at West Point was is not ascertained, but it was certainly a division. A correspondent of the New York Tribune, writing from Yorktown on the 2d, says: Our forces are evacuating West Point, and are being brought here by transports; the last regiment leaves there to-day. West Point is a very important position to hold, and the troops while there had so effectually fortified the place as to make it almost impregnable; but the land is very low and marany, lying as it does between two rivers, which, coupled with the excessively hot weather during the last month, made it so unhealthy as to be unpatentable. I understand that the divi
e North will be received on the boat at City Point and taken to Annapolis, and every adult person coming North will be required to take and subscribe to the oath of allegiance to the Government of the United States before the boat leaves Fortress Monroe. L. C. Turner, Judge Advocate. The meeting of the peace Democrats in New York — resolutions passed. As a part of the history of this war we make room for the resolutions adopted by a meeting of the peace Democrats of New York on the 3d, a sketch of which we published several days ago. The meeting was a very large one, and among the speakers were several Germans. Here are the resolutions: Resolved, That the sovereignty of the States and the sovereignty of the people, as laid down in the Virginia and Kentucky resolutions, of which Jefferson and Madison were the authors, are the fundamental principles of the Democratic party; that they are the vital essence of the Constitution, pervading every line and provision of that
and assault of Friday a plan was adopted which I believe is somewhat novel, at least in America. Ten men were chosen from each regiment to the number of about 150, to head the charge as a sort of forlorn hope. They got to the edge of the parapet, but as elsewhere, no further. The Yankee Government sales of abandoned cotton take place at St. Louis on the first Monday of each month, and at Cincinnati on the second Monday. The first sale will take place in the last named city on the 15th instant. The Newport News says that the Right Rev-Bishop of the Diocese of Rhode Island will visit the city of Washington in a few days for the purpose of uniting in the bonds of matrimony ex-Gov. Sprague, now U. S. Senator from Rhode Island, and Miss Kate Chase, eldest daughter of the Secretary of the Treasury. The chief of police of Nashville, Tenn., arrested C. F. Jones, formerly connected with the New York Spirit of the Times, now "local" of the Nashville Dispatch, for writing treas
nches, and our riflemen in pits at a distance of from two hundred to five hundred yards of the enemy's line of defensive works. The enemy can hold no communication with the outside forces. He is closely and securely hommed in. III. Only one partial attempt has been made to storm the works, which resulted in a repulse, with a loss to us of eight hundred in killed and wounded. This attempt was made by a portion of McClernand's corps on the left or lower side of the city. This was on the 19th. Since that time skirmishing along the line, with occasional firing from the field batteries, has comprised all the hostilities, beyond the shelling and bombardment by mortar boats from the river front. IV. It is not, certain whether the attack is converted into a siege of regular approaches by parallel works, mines, etc., or whether we are waiting for additional reinforcements with which to make a general assault. Opinions differ. The general impression is, among intelligent officers
thereof by those in power, as the only course which can be pursued to reassure our people that constitutional freedom, so dear to their hearts, has not ceased to be. The attention of the Governor is called to this infringement of popular rights and the invasion of the sovereignty of the State of Illinois. A Democratic Mass meeting in Indiana--the military on hand — Cannon bearing on the Speaker's stand — remarks of Mr. Veorrees. The Democracy of Indiana met at Indianapolis on the 21st of May. From fifty to seventy-five thousand persons were present. A regiment of infantry, in full marching order, was posted in the Governor's Circle, and two pieces of artillery were placed to sweep the streets leading to it. Hon. D. W. Voorhees made a speech. He said: "In the Constitution I read it is the inalienable right of the people peaceably to assemble and ask for a redress of grievances. No sadder grievances ever befell the children of men than those which afflict the people of t

I understand that the division from West Point now commanded by General Gordon (Gen. Ord having been assigned to some command in the West) is to remain with the 4th army corps, under the command of Major-General Keyes, as the term of service of several of the nine months conscript regiments that are here will expire in July. The addition of so many troops gives quite a lively appearance to Yerkle we again, which has been very quiet the post and The are on a near the York river, just below the fort, where there is a salt-water brease constantly blowing from the river, which makes the position both a cool and a healthy one. The plain extends for several miles in a southerly direction, and affords a fine drill ground. It is rumored here that the enemy are massing a large force at Diascon Bridge, about ten

Additional from the North. From our files of Northern papers, of the 10th, we make up some interesting intelligence, which we give below: The position at Vicksburg. A correspondent of the New York World, writing from near Vicksburg, June 2d, gives the following explanation of how things stand with the Federal: I. Vicksburg is not in our possession. II. It is closely invested, our lines of siege being within two and a half miles of the centre of the town. Our-pickets are behind trenches, and our riflemen in pits at a distance of from two hundred to five hundred yards of the enemy's line of defensive works. The enemy can hold no communication with the outside forces. He is closely and securely hommed in. III. Only one partial attempt has been made to storm the works, which resulted in a repulse, with a loss to us of eight hundred in killed and wounded. This attempt was made by a portion of McClernand's corps on the left or lower side of the city. This w

tates, during the present war, and that I have not in my trunk nor on my person any papers or writings whatsoever, nor any contraband articles. No person will be allowed to take more than one trunk or package of female wearing apparel, weighing not over one hundred pounds, and subject to inspection; and if anything contraband be found in the trunk or on the person, the property will be forfeited and the pass revoked. Second.--A passenger boat will leave Annapolis, Md., on the 1st day of July next, to deliver those permitted to go South at City Point, and the baggage of each applicant must be delivered to the quartermaster on said boat, at least twenty-four hours previous to the day of departure for inspection. Third.--Children will be allowed to accompany their mothers and relatives, and take their usual wearing apparel; but the name and age of each child must be given in the application. Fourth.--Ladies and children desiring to come North will be received on the
and remarked that a City Judge standing up at that time and crying "Peace, peace," it was time for him to say "War, war to the bitter end." Here several parties attempted to speak at a time, and the utmost confusion prevailed, Judge McCunn being carried round the room by several of his men. The Mayor immediately left, and the proceedings terminated after several other volunteer toasts and sentiments. A Washington dispatch to the New York Tribune says: Harry Sherman, one of Col. Baker's detectives, whom the rebels captured weeks ago, and were believed to have hung, is a prisoner in Castle Thunder. The Provost Marshal received a letter to-day, postmarked Richmond, containing this intelligence. A letter from Vicksburg says: In the grand assault of Friday a plan was adopted which I believe is somewhat novel, at least in America. Ten men were chosen from each regiment to the number of about 150, to head the charge as a sort of forlorn hope. They got to the ed

nd nearly cheers for peace, groans for military courts martial of citizens, and cheers for the proposition for a Convention to take preliminary stops to secure peace. The greens and black for the President and the cheers for Vallandigham and peace were specially viscous. On motion of Mr. Flanders, the resolutions were adopted, after which Mr. Flanders, on behalf of the Committee on Invitations, read letters of regret for non-attendance from Hon Thomas H. Seymour of Connecticut, Hon. James A. Bayard of Delaware, and Hon. Willard Saulsbury of Delaware, all of which endorsed the peace movement, and elicited unusual approbation. The speech of Fernando Wood was the boldest and ablest of the occasion. Its tenor may be inferred from the following reasons which he assigned why the war should cease: 1. The war should cease because it should never have commenced, in as much as there is no coercive military power in the Federal Government as against the States, which are sover
