sland have been sent, others are following--for the Rio Grande. The Monroe doctrine will find numerous advocates at Brownsville in less than three days! Napoleon will find that he is not to remain undisturbed. The city is rife with rumors that the Star Spangled Banner will soon wave in triumph over the Mexican city of Matamoras. This latter place is almost immediately opposite Brownsville. Miscellaneous. A dispatch from Memphis says that a fearful riot occurred in Mobile on the 4th inst., A party of soldiers' wives, to the number of 600, paraded the city with exciting mottoes on their banners, such as "Bread or Peace." The soldiers offered no opposition to the display, but in some instances the citizens attempted to arrest the progress of the procession. [This is the latest, and greatest Yankee fabrication.] Secretary Seward's circular of the 12th August, was published in the English journals on the 2d September. A Washington telegram says it is learned from the
ty off the coasts of Virginia and North Carolina represent the unanimity of sentiment among the officers and men in favor of a war with England as remarkable. The most intense feeling prevails on this topic. Serenades by military bands in Washington, without the permission of the military commander, have been prohibited. The censorship of the press in Washington continues with its accustomed particularity. Even matters in no manner connected with military operations have to receive the approval of the official supervisor.

The surrender at Cumberland Gap. The Bristol (Tenn,) Advocate contains some particulars of the surrender of the Confederate force at Cumberland Gap. It says: It is with deep mortification that we announce the unconditional surrender of Cumberland Gap to the Federal forces on Wednesday, the 7th inst. According to the best information we can gather there were 2,100 men in the garrison when it was surrendered. It is reported, however, that something near a thousand refused to comply with the surrender, and made their escape. Of these latter it is said that some two hundred belonged to Col. Slemp's (64th Va,) regiment. Our loss in stores, arms, &c., must be considerable. Among them was Leyden's battery, of the 9th Georgia battalion--one of the most splendid batteries in the service.-- It was presented to the Confederacy by the merchants of Liverpool, and was stationed near this place for several weeks during the past summer. That splendid company, the Gilmer Grays, who w

Counterfeiter arrested. --Matthew Norton, who hails from Memphis, Tenn., and who, at the time, was in possession of seven thousand dollars counterfeits, in Confederate Treasury notes, was arrested in Atlanta, Ga., on the 14th inst.--This young counterfeiter is also a spy, having been observed for several days inspecting the fortifications about Charleston. He had among his papers a record of his oath of allegiance to the United States Government, and a passport giving him permission to go out of Memphis with a wagon and team. After his arrest Matthew Norton confessed that he had passed about $3,000 of these counterfeits in the city of Charleston, S. C. We append below such a description of them as will insure their recognition: $100, 2 Cents Per Day.--This counterfeit is of the issue of J. T. Patterson, Columbia, S. C., duty July 4, 1862. In the genuine but one of the masts of the ship run up to the telegraph wire; in the counterfeit both masts run up to that wire; in
Later from the North. Baltimore papers, of the 17th instant, have been received. They contain nothing of interest from the seat of war in Tennessee, Northern Georgia, or Virginia, and nothing new from Charleston. The following is a summary of the general news: Writ of Habeas corpus Suspended. Lincoln has issued a proclamation suspending throughout the United States the writ of habeas corpus in cases where military, naval, or civil officers of the U. States hold persons under their command or in their custody either as prisoners of war, spies, or aiders or abettors of the enemy, or of officers, soldiers, or seamen enrolled, drafted, or mustered, or enlisted in or belonging to the land or naval forces of the United States, or as deserters therefrom, or otherwise amenable to law, or the rules and articles of war, etc., or for resisting a draft, or for any other offence against the military and naval service.

ented at him. Peasley halted at a respectable distance, until he could get hold of a billet of wood, with which he succeeded in knocking one of them down. Then commenced a foot race, which was participated in by Brown, Peasley & Jones as the pursuers, and the three housebreakers as the fleers.--On coming up with them in the neighborhood of the beef market, each man brought down his game, but only succeeded in holding fast to one. This fellow (Forrest) underwent an examination yesterday, and acknowledged being with the party; but said that he did not enter the house himself, and tried to persuade the others to desist from doing so. He said they were in search of something to eat, and had no intention of doing anything wrong. When asked by the Recorder who these comrades of his were, he readily gave their names as Thomas Nugent and Laruy Collins, also members of his company. Warrants were issued for them, and the further prosecution of the case continued till Monday, the 31st inst.

200 dollars reward. --Ran away from the residence of the writer, corner of 7th and Leigh streets, on Monday morning last, a gingerbread-colored boy, named Jim, about 14 years old, very large mouth, very sprightly and lively, and fond of singing comic songs when at leisure. He is very fond of soldiers; and my impression is that he has gone off with some of the local companies around Richmond or Petersburg, which latter place he was raised by a Mr. or Mrs. Piermon, and sold here 17th March last, at Lee & James's , by C C Burton. There are no scars recollected, except whip marks from appearance when he was very young. The above reward will be paid if delivered to Hill, Dickinson & Co, Richmond.

The "Rebel Rams" in England. The following is Earl Russell's reply to the memorial of the Emancipation Society relative to the steam rams in the Mersey: Foreign Office, Aug. 13. Gentlemen — I have received your letter calling attention to a subject of very grave and impressing importance, namely: the fitting out or equipping two powerful iron-plated steam rams, which I am informed are intended to commit hostilities against the Government and people of the United States. My attention has long been directed to these subjects. Both the Treasury and Home Departments have, at my request, made most anxious inquiries upon the subject of these steam rams. You are aware that by the foreign enlistment act a ship is liable to be detained, and the owners are subject to a penalty when the ship is armed or equipped for purposes of war, and the owners intend to use her against some State or community in friendship with her Majesty. It is necessary to prove both the

Fifty dollars reward. --Ranaway from our farm, in Nelson county, on the 17th of August, a negro woman named Eliza. She is about 23 years old, likely, black, and above the average size. She is originally from North Carolina, was purchased by us in Richmond, and lived with one of us a short time at Madison Court House. She was apprehended and made her escape from Mr. Thomas Martin's, on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, near Covesville, Albemarle county, last week, and is doubtless making her way towards Gordonsville or Richmond, or the Yankee lines. $50 will be given for her apprehension and delivery to as, or $30 if secured in jail, so that we get her.
