r. Gen. C. Strong, A. A. G. Chief of Staff The Banks, in consequence of the foregoing order, give notice to their depositors to withdraw their deposits of Confederate notes prior to the 27th, else they will be held at their own risk. Running the blockade. The steamer Nellie, Capt. Moore, from Nassau, having on board a cargo of medicines and general merchandise, in attempting to run the blockade off Charleston last Sunday morning, was chased ashore on the southern end of Long Island by the Yankee cruisers. The Courtier, of Tuesday, says: The steamer Caldwell reached the city last evening from the Nellie, having on board a part of the cargo of the latter. Mr. J. A. Enslow, the agent of the Nellie, also arrived from her, and from him we learn that the steamer has commenced to leak in consequence of the heavy sea to which she was exposed on Sunday night and Monday morning, and that she has worked up on the beach, where she is left dry at low water. Much of the
Rev Dr. Tiffany, represented as one of the most prone and eloquent divines in that God forsaken city, Chicago, started on a mission of mercy to the Federal army at Pittsburg Landing. On the way he got so gloriously drunk that his friends had to look him up in a state room on the boat. Gen. S. R. Chandler, a prominent citizen of Sumter District, S. C., died last Saturday week. The British steamer Netly, ashore on Long Island Beath, below Charleston, was sold on Tuesday last for $1,700 cash. Some of the Georgia papers upbraid Gen. Robert Toombs for planting an unusually large crop of cotton. All restriction upon the removal of salt from Charleston to the interior of South Carolina has been withdrawn. Sir William Don, the actor, died in Australia March last.
o the right, in advance, and resting on the Nine-Mile road, was the Twenty-Third Pennsylvania, and behind it the First Long Island. The Thirty-first and Sixty-first Pennsylvania, and the First Chasseurs were also on the right, towards Fair Oak Statas weakened, but fell back, fighting, and Col. Neile, with his colors and less than a hundred men, formed on the First Long Island, the next regiment to his line. Still the enemy came on, And in a few minutes later, our whole right was in h Brady's battery (farther to the right) kept up a rapid fire. Soon the 36th New York, the 7th Massachusetts, the 1st, Long Island, the 1st Chasseurs, the 61st, 31st, 33d, and 102d Pennsylvania, the 62d New York, and the 10th Massachusetts, were alle-Mile road; but he had gained too much to give it up easily, and he tried again; and again our line gave way. The 1st Long Island broke; but two of Jameson's regiments — the 57th and 63d Pennsylvania--would have more than retrieved it. Col. Campbel
f our citizens that day was above all praise. We who saw it, knew it. A distinguished lawyer, whose age prevented him from being on the field, exclaimed to a friend while the battle was raging, in the fullness of a heart over-flowing with admiration. "I am proud of Richmond. I am proud of my fellow citizens. I could never have believed it possible for human beings to behave so admirably as they have done this day. From my soul, I am proud of them." And good reason he had to be proud of them, for certainly their behavior was most admirable. There is nothing of which we read in the Annuals of Rome — whether real or fictitious — that surpassed it.--How different from the account which Washington Irving gives of the manner in which the people of New York conducted themselves when the battle was going on Long Island True, however, the circumstances were different. The people of New York knew the British would be victorious, while our people fair satisfied we should beat the Yankee

This I saw impossible to be done, and decided at once to try and get into Caper's insist or beach the ship. Although the wind was blowing strong from the northeast, and breakers running high, I deemed it better to try to save m
nconditional power. [Tremendous cheering.] I will not cite a hundred authorities that I could cite in Latin, in French, and in German, under the civil law, as old as the days of Justinian, but I will come down to what has been deemed high Republican authority, that of John Quincy Adams. We had like controversies with Great Britain in 1783 and in 1816, upon the subject of slave emancipation, that we have now. Great Britain, pending the revolution emancipated and abducted many slaves from Long Island and elsewhere, and carried these slaves to Nova Scotia or to the West Indies, there to be re-enslaved; and in the war of 1812. Great Britain exercised a like power over this slave property of the United States. John Quincy Adams, at a Minister to England, as Secretary of State of the United States, wrote to the British authorities that-- "They (the British) had no right to make any such emancipation promises to the negro. The principle is, that the emancipation of the enemy's slave
hey desire to set up a new Government for themselves He down this general principle, applicable to every State in the Unions" I have taught and believed, and still maintain, is the right of a people to form and modify their political institutions without the necessity of fighting for such change." He denies that a county, or two or three counties, can lawfully secede from a State.--For example, the people of Nantucket could not be permitted to secede from Massachusetts, nor the people of Long Island or Staten Island from the State of New York. But the case is different with a sovereign State, or even a colony which is not sovereign. For example, he says, "I believe our revolutionary fathers had a right, for reasons which were cogent and seamed to them conclusive, to terminate their connection with Great Britain, and that the British were wrong in roasting their claim to do so. And the right which I claim for our fathers and for ourselves I will not deny to others." Then he g
From Charleston — a steamer ashore. Charleston, March 19 --There are no signs yet of the anticipated attack. The weather is rough and threatening. The iron screw steamer Georgiana, from Nassau with a valuable cargo, including four Slakely guns, was chased ashore by the blockaders on Long Island beach, before daylight this morning, and badly riddled by Yankee shot.--The crew took to the boats, and have reached the city. The Georgiana was owned by English parties.
up, the blockaders soon commenced chasing and firing.--The Charleston Mercury says: The Georgiana kept on her course for the bar-until her rudder was disabled by the explosion of a shell under her stern, and her hull was penetrated by several shots, one of which, it is reported, passed entirely through her. At one time the Yankees were so close that the order to fire and the direction to trail their guns could be distinctly heard. To prevent capture the Georgiana was run ashore on Long Island beach, and the pipes leading into the vessel were cut, letting a large amount of water into the hold, which, it is hoped, will prevent the enemy from securing the vessel or cargo. The captain, pilot, and most of the crew have reached the city in their boats. One of the boats is still missing, but she may yet be heard from.--The coal burned by the Georgiana, it is said, made much smoke, and it is thought that this led to her discovery by the Yankees. The Georgiana was owned by English p
