atch has been received from Harper's Ferry that General Stuart, with cavalry and artillery, was within the Federal lines, between Leesburg and Nolan's Ferry, moving in the direction of the latter. Measures were immediately instituted to capture him. Pack mules are to be used to facilitate the movements of the army of the Potomac. In Philadelphia it is reported that the privateer Retribution was in Crooked Island passage and had taken several American vessels, run them ashore on Long Island, and discharged their cargoes. At a meeting of the Hall Democrats, on the 14th, Fernando Wood spoke on the resolutions opposing the war. He said: We are for returning the seceded States to their duties. We believe that peace, under the present circumstances, is the only way to restore the Union. I am glad the lionhearted Democracy will soon have the opportunity of giving the lie to men like Van Buren and Brady. [Cheers and Hisses] I want the thousands of honest men who are beyond

Wreck of a blockade Runner. Charleston, May 21. --The steamer Norseman, with 150 bales of cotton, for Nassau, in going out last night, struck a snag, supposed to be the wreck of the Georgiana. She was run ashore on Long Island beach, and is believed to be a total wreck.
ous to see them on this side. The Yankees celebrated the 4th at Bridgeport and Battle Creek by a salute of thirty-four guns. On Saturday morning last a small party of Col. Davis's Florida troops went across the Tennessee, and, fording the Sequatchie on foot, surprised a scouting party of Yankee cavalry, numbering 27, taking five prisoners, killing and wounding nine, and capturing five horses and guns, which they brought into camp. A party of five Yankees, who had paddled over to Long Island to gather berries, were also captured by our men. A Yankee Major, who had swam over after a boat, was captured by our pickets. The opposing pickets have ceased to fire at each other, and now exchange newspapers and civilities by swimming over. On last Thursday night the Yankees fiercely shelled our camp — without result, however. We understand from Capt. Guthrie, a Yankee Captain, that all the field officers of his regiment--19th Illinois--resigned a few days ago, and he thinks a d
Fremont. --Gen. Fremont and family are residing at present, at Oyster Bay, Long Island. The General has not resigned his position; had he resigned, he could not secure the privilege of drawing some $6,000 or $8,000, the pay of a Major-General to which he is now entitled.
land, at the camp of the first company negro heavy artillery; in Maryland and Delaware, at Washington. Negro troops from New York, it is thought, will be rendezvoused at Washington. The Boston Transcript says: Some of the substitutes who were placed in Brinley Hall, Worcester, for safe keeping, attempted to escape by digging a hole through the wall of the building, but their operations were discovered and frustrated, and yesterday the whole lot, seventy in-number, were sent to Long Island, in Boston harbor. A part of them are said to be New York roughs. Six substitutes who escaped from Taunton on Saturday have been recaptured. One of the slippery fellows was a substitute broker. On Saturday a meeting was held in Hackensack, in Bergen county, N. J., at which a series of resolutions were unanimously adopted denouncing the conscription act as "unjust, unconstitutional, and slavish in its provision," and that they will throw themselves upon the courts for "protect
nce? Would that we might believe that the disgraceful treatment of our Confederate prisoners might arise from individual corruption and not from the Government, of whose sins we, as a representative people, must bear the punishment. But the matter needs probing. "There is something rotten in the State of Denmark." A. New Englander. Rebellious conscripts. A dispatch from Boston says: The officers of the steamer Forest City, which took nearly one thousand conscripts from Long Island to Alexandria, say that frequent threats were made on the passage by the substitutes on board to burn the steamer, but no attempt was made to execute them. On arriving in the Potomac many efforts to escape were made. One man was shot while attempting to swim ashore. Another was discovered in the water boat, a box over his head, and on being picked up was found to have $600 in his belt. After landing, quite a number escaped while on the way to the army in the cars. Dash and darin
herever the enemy may present himself. When this situation is compared with the many unavoidable reverses and endless difficulties which our brave ancestors had to encounter, and so gloriously surmounted, in their struggle for independence, who does not feel his spirit rebuked at the slightest thought of discouragement under our present circumstances? Recollect the condition of Washington in the second year of the war of the Revolution, when, after successive and severe disasters on Long Island, at New York, at White Plains, and the loss of Fort Washington, on the Hudson, with its garrison, he was compelled to retreat through the Jerseys, "pushed," to use his own expressive language, "from place to place, till we were obliged to cross the Delaware with less than three thousand men fit for duty," and the reluctant confession was extorted from his firm and manly breast that unless "a new army can be speedily recruited the game is pretty nearly up"--even in this extremity there was
mouth of Lookout Valley terminates towards the river at Brown's Ferry. It is a continuation of Will's Valley, which is formed by the slope of Lookout and the continuation of Raccoon Mountain, called Sand Mountain, running southwest. The Will's Valley Railroad runs from Chattanooga to Trenton, a distance of 21 miles. As the enemy now controls the occupation of Raccoon Mountain they will be able, unless driven out, also to hold Will's Valley. The bridge over the Tennessee, which crosses Long Island at Bridgeport, is nearly completed by the enemy, and it is reported will be finished in ten days. They have then only to rebuild the bridge over Running Water Creek, 15 miles below Chattanooga, to obtain the full occupation of the road up to Brown's Ferry. This will soon enable them to take the offensive, and if they make another flank movement by Will's Valley will necessarily compel us to fall back. Our plans however, which of course are not known, may change the whole complexion of t
The siege of Charleston. --The Charleston Courier, of Thursday last, has the following: The Yankees are reported actively engaged throwing up a heavy work on the end of Long Island touching the creek from Secessionville to Folly river, and opposite Secessionville. A derrick boat was also observed at the Inlet on Tuesday, and the Yankees engaged in landing heavy guns from a schooner upon Oyster Point. One of the Yankee gunboats in Stono shelled John's Island for a short time on Tuesday. They succeeded in carrying off the two howitzers left behind by our troops last Friday, and incorrectly reported by passengers as having been recovered. One of the Timbers was left behind. The enemy are again busy at Gregg. On Wednesday morning the embrasure for the 10-inch Columbiad bearing on Fort Sumter was reopened. It is believed that the old fort will soon be treated to another storm of shells. Since Tuesday afternoon the enemy, with two barges, have been dragging
d of Lighthouse Inc. She had probably drugged her anchor during the gale which had been blowing all night. On Saturday the enemy was busy both at Gross and Wagner. At Wagner among other things, he rained a new flag staff, while at Gregg an embracive was out bearing on the city. Two gunboats, one having three bags in filled with men, and a with two in also filled with men, were observed on Saturday morning coming from the northward, apparently from a reconnaissance of Long Island. It is reported that these barges had entered Dewee's inlet. On the same day there was a brief artillery duel between Battery Tatum and Black Island. Everything was quiet on Sunday, until between the hours of 3 and 4 o'clock, when the enemy opened upon the city, throwing 12 shells, most of which failed to explode. The fleet were reported, on the 3d inst, as follows: The Ironsides, four monitors, two mortar boats, four wooden gunboats (one of these not observed before,) thr
