[from the St Mary's (Md.,) Gazette.] The Date Speech of Mr Harris.--Our readers, being the immediate constituents of Mr Harris, will doubtless expect to read his speech in this issue of our paper, but the annexed communication, we presume, will satisfactorily account for our failure to publish it: Headq'rs cavalry Department,District of St Mary's Leonardtown, Md., April 12, 1864. Sir: The commanding officer of this detachment desires that you will not publish or make any allusion in the St Mary's Gazette to the treasonable and disgraceful speech of the member of Congress from this district, delivered in the House of Representatives on the 9th inst. I am, sir, very respectfully your obedient serv't. F. W. Dickinson 1st Lieut 5th Cavalry, Acting Adj't. To the publisher and proprietor of the St Mary's Gazette, Leonardtown, Md.
cost and is costing many millions. It opens our lines to the spies of the enemy, and renders it next to impossible to execute any military plan without its becoming known to him long enough in advance for him to prepare for it. The facts here stated are known to every intelligent man in Memphis. What is the remedy for these great and overwhelming Experience shows that there can be but one remedy, and that is total prohibition of all commercial intercourse with the States in rebellion. It is therefore ordered: That on and after the 15th day of May. 1864, the lines of the Army of Memphis be closed, and no person will be permitted to leave the city except by river, without a special pass from these headquarters, after that date. All persons of coming into the city will be permitted is do so, but should be notified by the pickets that they will not be allowed to return. All persons who desire to leave the city to go beyond the lines must do so before the 15th inst.

rtunate as to live for another day in their brutal company. Could I tell you of half the dangers to which I have been subjected, but from which a merciful Providence has rescued me, belief would be confounded, and charity refuse to credit that such atrocities could he perpetrated by human beings. Mr. C. went to texas with the few negroes he had saved, leaving us just opposite Natchitoches, a broad river intervening, isolated and unprotected. The Yankees entered Natchitoches on the 31st of March with high heads and brave, with flying colors and music. They remained for six days. In that period more abominations were enacted than I deemed possible for the imagination even of demons to conceive. On the evening of April 5th they began their advance. At midnight we were a knocking at the door; the assailing party threatening to break in if not admitted. Preparations were even made to fire the dwelling. Imagine the feelings of two lone women at this awful juncture. Earthly ai

Foul Pray with blockade Runners. --The Wilmington Journal says it has been hinted before that there was something like foul play connected with the capture of the Robert E Lee, (formerly the Giraffe,) and the following from the Halifax (N S) Journal, of the 29th April, seems to give color to the accusation: We understand that the American Consul at this port has been endeavoring to bribe the engineers and other officers on board the Confederate steamers in this port to betray their trust, as it is believed he was only the successful in doing in the case of the Robert Lee. He succeeded in gaining admittance to the City of Petersburg the other day without the Captain's knowledge; and we are requested by Captain Fuller to state that when he repeats his visit he will be provided with a speedy passage to the bottom of the dock, with a sinker upon him sufficient to keep him there. This is dignified work certainly for a representative of a nation which claims to be civilized — th
Puzzling the Danes. --We find the following in the Bermuda Advocate, of the 18th May: Whist the steamers Let Her Be and Badger were coaling at St. Thomas's, they continued to fly the Confederate flag at their respective staffs. The authorities sent them orders to haul down the obnoxious ensigns; compliance was refused. The authorities sent off again, giving three hours, and threatening that if the flags were not then hauled down they (the authorities) would have them hauled down themselves. The three hours elapsed and the flags were still flying; the authorities seat off a force to haul them down, when it was found that in each case the flag was nailed to the staff, the halyards removed, and the pole gretted.
the railroad from Danville to Greensboro', N. C, on the 21st of May, the Postmaster General telegraphed to Mr Johnson, the President of the Columbia and Charlotte railroad, and to Mr Webb, the President of the North Carolina railroad, to meet him and Mr. Harvie, the President of the Piedmont railroad, at once, so as to agree to a cross and quick schedule for the mails, seven times a week, from Richmond to Columbia, S C. The Presidents of these three roads met the Postmaster General on the 25th May, and agreed on a schedule with close connections from Richmond to Columbia, S. C, for daily mail trains, with further understanding that they would run double daily mail trains if not prevented by the accessibly for military transportation. By this schedule the mails are to go from Richmond the Charlotte, N. C, in twenty-four hours, and the only reason why it was not put in operation at once was the fact that the Presidents of these roads found it impracticable to make the necessary arrang

the Government of the Confederate States. Also, a bill to amend the act to regulate the destruction of property under military necessity. Mr. H. W. Bruce, of Ky., offered a resolution to rescind the resolution for an adjournment on Tuesday, the 7th of June instant. Laid on the table. Various memorials and resolutions of inquiry were introduced and referred. Mr. Foote, of Tenn., offered the following: Resolved, That so much of the joint resolution adopted on the 30th of May as requires the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives to adjourn their respective Houses at 12 o'clock M. on Tuesday, June 7th, be, and the same is hereby, rescinded; and the said two Houses shall take a recess on Tuesday next, at 12 o'clock M., for ninety days. Mr. Swan, of Tenn., moved to amend by substituting fifteen days. Mr. Echels, of Ga., moved to lay the resolution and amendment on the table. On this question Mr. Foote demanded the aye
e information, we should hesitate long before we ascribe its partial failure to the fault of an officer who has since proved himself such a consummate master of the art of war. With regard to the campaign of 1862, there cannot be two opinions. It ought, in fact, to be considered his first campaign — for the campaign of 1861 was a mare episode in his military life — and viewed in this light it was certainly, we think, the most brilliant first campaign on record, that of Bonaparte in Italy, in 1796 alone excepted. The accord campaign, notwithstanding the failure at Gettysburg, which the Yankees have magnified into an overwhelming victory, increased rather than diminished his reputation. In spite of boasting and lying, it is known that they were themselves on the point of retreating had not the exhaustion of his ammunition compelled Lee to take that step first; that they did not dare to pursue him, though his retreat was slow and defiant; that he carried his men safely over a large
