McClellan. The disgraced General, since his removal from his command, to propitiate the Demon, of Abolitionism, has been very cautions and very prudent in his conduct and sayings; but, with all his caution, he developed himself sufficiently the other day at Trenton to show to what side he belongs in the new organization of Northern parties. He said to delegations from Trenton, Newark, and New Brunswick: "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. This passage a quite significant, and when we consider the well known reserve and prudence of McClellan, is a strong warning to the Northern people that the Constitution is in peril, and they are about to lose their rights in the attempt to subjugate the South. The warning is quite enough to lose McClellan forever the favor of the Lincoln Government. It is a clear imputation upon that immaculate co
Late Northern News. From files of New York and Baltimore papers, of the 14th, 15th, and 16th, we make up an interesting summary of the current news at the North: The late M'Clellan —— the way he Behaves at Trenton — his parting with the army — his chances for the Senatorship. Delegations from Brunswick, Me., and Newark, N. J., have reached Trenton with invitations for the young Napoleon to visit those cities. The Daily Register, of Patterson, N. J., nominates him for the vacant seat in the U. S. Senate. A correspondent of the New York World, writing from Trenton, on Friday, has the following gossip about him. The seclusion of the General has been somewhat relaxed to-day, and many distinguished citizens from this neighborhood and other parts of New Jersey have called upon him. All were received with easy grace and affable smiles. Little if any reference was made to the mortifying circumstances of the hour, but the future was talked of by the guests with confidenc
Progress of the war. A Vallandigham meeting — Bold sentiments — the military on the ground. A meeting was held in Newark, N. J., on the 28th ult., to adopt resolutions relative to the arrest and exile of C. L. Vallandigham. It was a very large assemblage, and composed chiefly of the country people. It met in the "Military Park," and the first scene of the afternoon was a collision with the soldiers, which is thus described: As the delegation pressed onward, with quiet determinatcourse maintained to the last a dignified bearing, venting their feelings in tremendous and sustained cheering at every allusion made to the circumstance by their orators, who openly denounced the military menace. At length Mayor Bigelow, of Newark, and Sheriff A. M. Reynolds appeared on the ground, and distinctly informed the commanding officer of the troops that the civil authorities were amply able to maintain the peace of the city, and the sheriff added that unless the force was at once

The following dispatches show what the Jerseymen are doing: Newark, N.

Trenton, June 17.--Governor Parker, up to the present time, has had tendered 1,500 men for immediate service. The 23d regiment of nine months men started to Harrisburg to-day. Company A, of the 5th military corps, will leave for Harrisburg to-morrow morning. All the military of this city will tender their services. New Jersey is most likely to have the first regiment of soldiers at Harrisburg. A full company has been formed out of the mechanics in the Trenton Arms Company's shop. The people are excited, and new companies are forming. The work goes bravely on. Gen. Lee's strength a
ting in New York, so bitterly ridiculed by the unthinking — those safe parallels by which the anti-war people of the North were working into open resistance to Lincoln Government — have borne their fruit. --The white flag has been suddenly lowered, and the red battle flag now waves in New York over streets wet with the gore of Lincoln's hate minions. This grand movement in New York is but the precursor of a series of similar outbreaks. Already have riots followed in Hartford, Ct., and Newark, N. J., and in a few days we shall hear from the West. These demonstrations may, and doubtless will, be put down by the iron hand of the military, but there will be no enforcement of the draft after quite is restored. These people have elected to die in the streets rather than submit to the hateful tyranny of Lincoln, and have proved themselves in earnest by pouring out their blood. They have shown a spirit which Lincoln, too glad to see subside, will never again rouse Already he is cowering

The mob was on its way to burn the Spuyton Devil bridge to prevent troops from arriving in the city. Riot at Hartford, Ct.

Disturbances occurred in Boston, Newark, Yorkville, Harlem, Brooklyn, Jamaica, Westchester, and other places, but the outbreaks were on a very small scale, except at Brooklyn. Here there was a great coe second time that this building has been destroyed, once before during the riot of the laborers on the New York and Erie Railroad tunnel. Disastrous fire in Newark, N. J.--destruction of factories, &c. As we are going to press we learn that a fearful fire is raging in Newark, several factories being on fire. In TroNewark, several factories being on fire. In Troy, New York, on the 15th, some three or four hundred men, said to be workmen in the Albany Nell Foundry, marched through the streets of the city, proclaiming that the draft should not take place. A dispatch says: They stopped in front of the Times office, which they stoned and gutted, destroying all the property within. Th
General Meade on his late movement. --The following is an extract from a letter of General Meade to a friend in Newark, New Jersey, written just before the last movement of the Army of the Potomac: "I am fully aware of the great anxiety in the public mind that something should be done. I am in receipt of many letters, some from persons in high positions, telling me I had better have my army destroyed and the country filled up with the bodies of the soldiers than to remain inactive. Whilst I do not suffer myself to be influenced by such communications, I am and have been most anxious to effect something, but am determined, at every hazard, not to attempt anything unless my judgment indicates a probability of accomplishing some object commensurate with the destruction of life necessarily involved. I would rather a thousand times he relieved, charged with tardiness or incompetency, than have my conscience burdened with a wanton slaughter, uselessly, of brave men, or with ha

General M'Clellan at home. [From the Newark (New Jersey) Advertiser, September 1.] The usually quiet town of Orange was quite animated yesterday on the announcement of the nomination of General McClellan, who has recently become a resident on the mountain just back of the town. The event of fired in front of the Park House. As night approached, the streets become thronged with people, who soon began to move in the direction of General McClellan's mountain home. About 9 o'clock quite a procession, including a number of citizens of Newark, accompanied by Rubsam's band, started for the house, which they reached about ten o'clock. General McClellan was there entertaining some personal friends, and the cottage was immediately surrounded by a clamorous crowd. The band struck up a s
Life in New York. --A correspondent of the Newark (New Jersey) Advertiser thus writes to that paper: "There is no inaction in matrimonial circles. The clergy were never more occupied in uniting people, forming unions rather than dissolving them, than they are at the present day. Then the weddings are got up in such splendid style, and the presents are so costly, that the friends of candidates for connubial bliss are kept painfully excited in bestowing costly gifts. Some weddings recently came off in the circle of my observation that were in splendid style and munificent in presents received. India shawls, worth eight hundred or one thousand dollars, were common; sets of pearls, and ear ornaments, costing fifteen hundred dollars, and suppers at receptions upon which two thousand dollars were expended, are not rare events even among those not in the wealthiest circle. But when that point is reached, the expense is almost fabulous, and the toilets and presents only such a
