A man named Charles Miller, who claimed to have been employed as a book-keeper in Richmond, has been arrested in New Orleans as a suspicious person. The militia sent from the Valley counties to Winchester on the last draft are to be discharged at once, and will return to their homes. Schuyler Livingston, an old merchant, died in New York on the 3d inst. The apple crop in Pennsylvania promises badly this year.
oked upon the Constitution as the law of limitation upon the one side and of obedience upon the other. Mr. Ewing also spoke of our country, her boundless resources and mighty improvements; looked forward to the amicable settlement of our national difficulties, and hoped for the future prosperity of our nation. Mr. Ewing left the floor amid much applause. Primary meeting at Centreville. A large and enthusiastic meeting was held at Centreville, Queen Anne's county, Md., on the 3d instant, at which several spirited addresses were made, and twenty-five delegates appointed to the Peace Convention to be held in Baltimore on the 10th of the present month. The resolutions adopted charge upon the Federal Government the most gross and palpable violations of the Constitution; insist that our fellow-citizens illegally imprisoned shall be either set at liberty or surrendered for trial to the civil authorities; declare uncompromising opposition to the war, and claim that the true iss
giments received from their State a supply of new clothing and shoes, of which they were in great need. At present they have a sufficiency of provisions — fresh beef, bacon and flour. Much uncertainty exists among them with reference to their military movements, it being whispered around that the idea of really striking at Washington has been abandoned by their leaders because success would be but problematical, at best. The Fort Hatteras prisoners. The New York Express, of the 4th instant, says: The prisoners from Fort Hatteras were taken off the Minnesota at half past 10 o'clock this morning and conveyed to Governor's Island by the small tug-boats furnished by Col. Tompkins, United States Quartermaster. The Minnesota swung round with the tide and headed up stream, just as she commenced to discharge the prisoners on the tug-boats, and, as they were on her port side, the numerous spectators who were watching the proceedings from the Battery and the piers for a conside
The Baltimore Riot cases. --The trials of parties indicted for rioting in Baltimore on the 19th of April last, commenced on the 4th inst. In the cases of Joseph Barrett and James Logan, the jury rendered a verdict of not guilty. The case of James Whiteford was argued, but not concluded, and James Girvin, Jr., John Myers, and Thomas Tibbels were subsequently arraigned. The list of indictments includes several other parties.
gate that over five hundred of the subalterns and private soldiers have decided that under no circumstances would they again resume service against the United States Government. A dispatch was sent to Washington, asking if such of the prisoners as manifested this loyal disposition might be liberated on taking the oath of allegiance; the answer was in the negative, and orders were issued to keep the whole party close prisoners. Arrests in Philadelphia. A Philadelphia paper of the 5th inst. says: Yesterday afternoon, E. S. Perkins, chief armorer of the arsenal at Bridesburg, and Robert Bolton, concerned in the manufacture of patent primers, at Frankford, were arrested on the charge of furnishing arms and munitions of war, in the month of April, to persons then engaged in open rebellion against the United States. The arrest of the accused grew out of an intercepted correspondence between Perkins and Bolton and A. Hitchcock, by which, it seems, that Hitchcock, who was an
The New York Democracy. --Great excitement existed in Syracuse, New York, on the 5th inst., in consequence of the assembling of the State Democratic Convention. The Tammany delegates were alone admitted, thus excluding the Mozart or "Peace" wing of the party. A telegram from Syracuse says: The Committee on Resolutions reported a series of resolutions setting forth that the watchword of Democracy was: "The Union must be preserved." That the claim to relinquish State allegiance was unwarranted by the Constitution, and at war with its letter and spirit; that secession is revolution: that the seizure by the seceding States of the forts and property of the Government, followed by privateering, precipitated the country into the present war; that it is the duty of the Government to prosecute the war with all its power and resources; and that it is the duty of the people to rally to its support, until the struggle ends with the triumph of the Constitution and the restoration of
One hundred Dollars Reward. --Runaway 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 Orenburg pants and a cheeked 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.

ere routed with great slaughter. Not a cannon report was heard here or in any of the forts over the river last night, at any hour; nor had the Government in this city heard of any engagement there per telegraph, to-day, up to 2 P. M. So we need hardly say that Munson's Hill had not been taken by General McClellan up to that hour. How soon he may choose to take it, we know not. The Navy Department to-day received official information from two points in the Gulf, dated on the 13th ult., from which it is evident that three or four of our vessels of war have reliable information of the position of the privateer Sumter, and have probably by this time closed down upon her, as they were then preparing to do (from different points) immediately. The Navy Department have information that the prizes taken from the disunionists in the waters of Florida and that immediate region, are being rapidly sunk (filled with stone) in the entrances to various small harbors of that State
ing of any value they could lay their hands upon.--They carried off all of her china, knives and forks, spoons, and even the castors on the dinner table. They then entered her chamber, broke open the wardrobe, and stole all of her children's clothing and all of her's and her husbands. They then caught a small servant boy and made him tell them where his masters guns were, which he had stored away in his granary. They then left, carrying the body with them. On last Wednesday night, 29th ultimo, the same steamer ran up and anchored close under Towie's Point. The next morning was quite foggy. As soon as the fog cleared away a little, they discovered the schooner "Extra" lying in the Currateman river, near Millenbeck wharf. They immediately gave chase, and it being very calm, the schooner could not get out of their way. As soon as the Captain found he was pursued, he ordered all of the provisions and furniture to be put into the boats, and, as if animated by the bold spirit of
Distressing, accident. --On Thursday, the 29th instant, Mr. Rufus Pollard, a young man, shot himself accidentally at Union Point, on the Georgia Railroad. It seemed that he snapped a cap on his pistol, and failing to fire, he put on a new one, and while doing so, the powder in the pistol took fire and exploded, the ball striking through the hand and body near his heart. He lingered for a few moments and then expired. He had just set aside his text books and quit the school-room, and was arranging to depart for Virginia to serve his beloved South.--Atlanta Intelligencer.
