ciate. This question they agreed to leave to me, and I settled it in a moment. "It was you, Captain Douglass," said I, to the senior officer, "who first bore out of action." They were satisfied, and shook hands together. While they were further discussing the matter, and deploring their defeat, said I, "gentlemen, did you expect to take the Constitution with those two ships? Why, you went on board of them this morning, and said they were in as good order as before the action. Now, if you like, I will send you back to them, give you your men and officers, and take you both over again. Take the Constitution with two ships? Why you couldn't do it with a dozen. This is the Constitution of the United States. You may sink it, and sink us with it, but you couldn't take it with all your King's fleet." So afraid were the British Admiralty of the Constitution, that they dare not trust a single frigate alone, but compelled the Levant to wait until the Cyane was ready to sail in company.

been admitted by a solitary Republican. The very name of slavery is studiously avoided. Sectionalism is unimpaired. Equality is not attained. --Coercion has not been abandoned. On the contrary, the declarations made in the Senate yesterday by King and Fessenden, show that the war spirit still prevails. King is not a man of much influence, but Fessenden is the strongest and most sincere of all the Republicans. He is more of a statesman than Seward, and has more weight with the radical wingKing is not a man of much influence, but Fessenden is the strongest and most sincere of all the Republicans. He is more of a statesman than Seward, and has more weight with the radical wing of the party. Opinions differ widely as to the ultimate result of the Peace Congress. Some who have been sanguine heretofore are now despondent, others are still hopeful. The papers of this morning state that ex-President Tyler fears that measures unsatisfactory to the Border States will be adopted. I am told that the Commissioners from Tennessee will accept terms much more moderate than those called for in the resolutions of their Legislature.--The same may be said of some of our Commi
Forging Virginia State bonds. --Detectives King and Slowey, on Friday, arrested a young man calling himself James Elliott, charged with having forged and uttered Virginia State six percent. bonds to the amount of several thousand dollars. It appears that three weeks ago the accused, who was then in Washington, sent to Livermore, Clews & Mason, brokers, at No. 29 Wall street, several of the above bonds to negotiate, which they did, and returned him the proceeds. A few days ago, these bonds to the amount of $3,500, were again sent them by the accused, who, however, in his correspondence, signed himself "R. M. Barbour." The brokers were desired to sell the bonds and retain the proceeds subject to his draft. From some informality in the correspondence, they were led to suspect the character of the bonds, and on making the necessary inquiries, ascertained them to be forgeries. In the meantime, Barbour alias Elliott, drew for $1,000 on account, but the brokers allowed his draft to "

o an article headed, "A new and formidable Instrument of Warfare — A Hint for the South." In which was stated, that upon the late false report of a conspiracy to seize the Brooklyn Navy Yard, in addition to the usual military preparations, Chief Engineer King caused to be in readiness hot water conveyed by hose, and to be forced by steam pumps upon the assailing parties. This species of warfare was mentioned as being hitherto unknown, which I most respectfully assert to be a mistake. I waharge, under the direction of Chief Engineer Harman Newell, of the steam pumps and appurtenances necessary to force the water on deck in case it was needed. Although nothing new, this system of warfare could be better applied. I agree with Mr. King, that it should be adopted by all ships-of-war and fortifications, being, as it is well known, a most terrible means for defence. My proposition in regard to fortifications, is the extending of a line of cast-iron pipes along the outside of
