ontributed to the Government out and out, from our private purse, and without any gun or ship contracts whatever. But the best of this rich like is that Mr. Aspinwall is said to have made more money than Morgan by buying and selling ships for the Government. The twenty-five thousand dollars profit on his gun contracts Mr. Aspinwall returns to Government, but the one hundred thousand dollars profit upon his Government ship operations he puts in his own pocket. Can't see it. The Newark (N. J.) Journal can't see how the Federal Government knows the Confederate losses to a-man but can't tell its own loses. It says: Retreating from an advancing foe, so rapidity that we are compelled to leave our dead and dying in the enemy's hands, our troops are reported as knowing to a fraction the number of men killed of the enemy. Have we any kind of shell or ball that, whenever it strikes down a Confederate, reports the fact within our camp ? If not, how is it that we obtain so soon
Shall this war ever cease.[from the Newark (N. J.) Journal.] Napoleon once said, "America is a fortunate country; for she thrives by the follies of our European countries. But, alas! now she has reversed her policy, and instead of thriving by avoiding these follies, she has not only adopted them — war, taxes, oppression — but the she has gone a step farther, and is endeavoring to destroy her own liberties, the liberties of white men, in order to strengthen or secure those of the black race. The history of mankind presents us with many insane follies of nations, but none equal in to this stupendous folly of Republican America, in this noon of the nineteenth century. A year and a half ago the American Republic, with the motto "E Pluribus Unum" flaming in her beak, was developing her resources of mind and body with an external force and an internal freedom that had never a parallel in the world's history. "A continent and two oceans," said the London Times, "are in the hands o

Several Federal steamers had gone up the St. Francis river and dispersed several bodies of guerrillas. A guerrilla attack was made upon the Federal force at Newark, Mo, consisting of 75 State troops, who were overpowered by numbers and captured. Another guerrilla attack was successful in the capture of Alexandria, the party retiring with plunder. Advices from Newbern, N. C., report a skirmish at the head of White Oak river, between a Federal force under Col. Hickman, of the 9th New Jersey regiment, and a party of Confederates, resulting in the rout of the latter. A large war mass meeting was held in Washington yesterday afternoon, at the ea
heaviest sold separately, and a few others bought as relics and for individual use. The prices ranged from 21¼ to 31 cents a pound. The bidding was spirited, and the amount realized was probably upward of $24,000. A lot of iron bars, for covering steamships and batteries, sold for $47 a gross ton. A lot of copper, consisting of bathing tubs, roofing, spouts, sugar boilers, &c., at 21¼ cents a pound. A silver cup for Stonewall Jackson captured. The United States authorities in Newark, N. J., have seized a silver cup which had been sent to an engraver in that city to be marked as follows: "Stonewall Jackson. L. 1862" It is not known whether it is intended for some Ledge or Lodges, or whether it is a present for some child in Dixie the latter is probably the case. The subject is, however, under investigation by the proper authorities. Strong language — Lincoln Denounced. At a meeting recently held in Fairfield county. Ohio, Dr. Olds, a Democratic

They seem to be crossing to the north side of the Missouri river. On the 4th instant, they attacked and dispersed a body of Federal troops at Taylorsville. Colonel Poindexter is reported near Hudson, with 1,200 partisans, threatening to capture that place. A dispatch from Shelban, reports Porter, with 2,400 men, encamped near Newark. He had bagged two companies of militia there, after slight resistance, with a large number of horses, guns, and a considerable amount of ammunition. Up to the 8th instant, 22,000 men were enrolled in the State of New York. Important army movements are anticipated at Washington. No one is allowed to pass McClellan's lines. A large number of negroes have been stolen by Pope, near Stenardsville, Va. The New York Commercial states that an important secret expedition, consi
ks, and Capt. Fessenden, a son of Senator Fessenden, were killed in the recent battles. The N. Y. Times says the conduct of the British Government towards the Tuscarora creates "mingled indignation and surprise," and calls for "a sharp remonstrance from Secretary Seward." Gold, in New York, was quoted Friday evening at 118¾, on the assurance, says the Times, that there was "no danger to be apprehended from the Confederate raid into Maryland." The remains of Gen. Kearney dd in state at Newark, N. J., on the 5th, and were to be interred at New York with great ceremony. The N. Y. Times has the following on the "reverses in Virginia:" It is pretty evident to everybody by this time that our armies have been out- generated by the rebels. The fact is humiliating, and one which we should rejoice to see refuted. But the logic of results proves it. In almost every instance where the two armies have met, the rebel Generals have out-manœuvred or out-managed ours. They have known prec
ursday received their clothing yesterday, and "skedaddled" to day atte nly imploring the officers to give them a day or two of grace in town. The camp is near Newark, and the men effected a "strategic" movement down the bank of the canal to that city, choosing the shortest route. As they passed the guard the men seized thughs which the others had fled for failing to get, and ordered out his others to pick up the stragglers. Such of the non- commissioned officers as were caught in Newark to day had their stripes tore off and are reduced to ranks. Few of his commissioned officers left camp, which place is peopled today by a corps consisting of ofd to satisfy the discontented. Very few of the thousand men who first left camp in a body have yet been discovered. They are supposed to have scattered all ever Newark and the adjacent country, and the regiments are for the time completely disorganized. Dismissed from the U. S. Navy.

Yankee Literian news. --The New York World has the following notice of a new book about to be published: Sheldon &Co. will publish, in a few days, a new novel, by Marton Harland, author of "Alone," "Hidden Path," "Nemesis," &c., called "Miriam." The large sale of her previous works has rendered Marion Harland the most popular female writer in this country. "Alone" and "Hidden Path" each had a sale of about 40,000 copies. The scene of this new story is laid in the dark and bloody ground of Kentucky, and the work is dedicated to George D. Prentice, editor of the Louisville Journal. Marion Harland, although born and brought up in Richmond, Va., married and is now living in loyalty in Newark, N. J.
ing Department No. 2, Mobile, Ala. The Famous Criticism of the late General Kearny on M'Clellan. Wilkes's (N. Y.) Spirit of the Times, of last week, publishes the following letter of Major General Philip Kearny to O. S. Halstead, Jr., of Newark N. J., which has been made the subject of much comment: Harrison's Landing, 4th August, 1862. Dear Pet: I thank you for your kind, long letter. You extend to me hope. You suggest withdrawing me and my division out of this ignoble pnt ? Two nights ago the rebel batteries fired from across the river, and killed and wounded some thirty men. Last night Hooker started out on a crude expedition to Malvern Hill. He went out four miles and came back again. Still, a "false fuss" injures the whole army. McClellan is dangerous, from the want of digesting his plans. He positively has no talents. Adieu. Get me and my "fighting division" with Pope. With best regards, yours, Kearny. To Mr. O. S. Halstead, Jr., Newark, N. J.
Gen. Butler at New Orleans, and the seal of some of the naval commanders in the West Indies, have evoked those issues which the representatives of two, at least, of the Powers concerned are pressing to a somewhat peremptory solution. General McClellan is already besieged with visitors from New York, Philadelphia, and other places, all anxious to pay their respects to him, though he expresses the desire to remain quiet. On Thursday evening the citizens of Trenton, with delegations from Newark and New Brunswick, gave General McClellan an overwhelming demonstration. Upon being called upon for a speech, he responded, but was able to speak but a few words, owing to frequent interruptions by cheers of the audience.--His closing sentence was significant, as follows:-- "While the army is fighting, you, as citizens, see that the war is prosecuted for the preservation of the Union and the Constitution, for your nationality and your rights."
