in Washington, and knew comparatively nothing beyond what could be gleaned from the newspapers. From a young man of much intelligence, from New Jersey, I succeeded in getting a few facts that may be interesting. His name is Wm. S. Clark, of Newark, belongs to the 3d New Jersey regiment, and has been five months in the service. While on picket near Bailey's cross roads, he was detected in giving papers to our men, and was ordered under arrest. He was court-martialed, but the result of theot notice any diminution in the war feeling, judging from the papers, but I know of many brigades that are opposed to the war. All the New Jersey papers that spoke against it have been destroyed. I recollect three now that have been mobbed, the 'Newark Evening Journal,' the 'Burlington Democrat, ' the 'Trenton Journal,' and some others, but the names have escaped me. The general impression among the men is that they are going to whip in the next fight, and that it will settle the war. All belie
he tastes and habits of manufacturing industry, so that we knew not how to do without the manufacturing North, no matter how well inclined we were to throw off our dependence. Nothing but compulsion, nothing but the sheer impossibility of obtaining articles of actual necessity, would ever have induced the South to dream of manufacturing for herself. It was in vain that her worst enemies were found in the very districts to which she resorted for manufactured articles; that Lynn, Lowell, Newark, and other manufacturing towns, were the vilest dens of abolitionism; she still patronized them with as liberal a head as ever, rather than establish and encourage manufactures of her own. It was in vain that the John Brown raid threw athwart the whole sky the first lurid glare of the riding comet of war; she never bought a dollar's worth the less of Northern men on that account. It was in vain that Southern journalists invoked the Southern people to break loose from their dependence on Nor
dds: That there is a party here, and strongly represented at court, which is decidedly in favor of such a step, is beyond doubt, but no action whatever has been taken on the subject. At the same time, it cannot be denied that the destruction of Charleston harbor, and the threat of promoting insurrection of the slaves against their masters, have quite destroyed any sympathy that might have been felt for the North. Probable action of Parliament — discontent and distress. The Newark (N. J.) Advertiser (a Republican journal) has a letter from its Paris correspondent, dated the 17th ultimo, which says: We may look for lively proceedings upon the opening of the British Parliament, and possibly the French Chambers also. In England two questions off interest to our country will be brought forward immediately — the expediency of recognizing the Southern Confederacy and a searching investigation of the conduct of the ministry, in carrying on, at a vast expense, preparations
en in moderate circumstances to make annual deposits for the purpose of providing a support for their families after their death, now refuse to pay one cent unless the annual payment is made at their own offices in the North, which is of course impossible. Prominent among these gangs of legalized robbers is a New Jersey Life Insurance Society, which has many upon its books in Richmond and throughout the South, and whose Board of Directors has lastly passed an iniquitous resolution closing up all their agencies with the South, and requiring their annual debts to be paid at the Newark (N. J.) office. A more barefaced and unblushing piece of highway robbery was never perpetrated. The men composing that Board as richly deserve the penitentiary as any thief or villain within its limits. We venture to say that, in the whole civilized world, the parallel of this scandalous breach of trust, in its audacious contempt of every principle of honor, integrity, and justice, is not to be found.
dden death of Ex-Governor Pennington, of New Jersey, has already been announced in our telegraphic column. The following particulars of his death we gather from a correspondence in the New York Commercial Advertiser: William Pennington, of Newark, late Speaker of the House of Representatives, died from the effects of morphine taken by mistake.
