Albion, in an appeal to the charitable of that city to contribute money to the relief of the Confederate prisoners left wounded on the field at Gettysburg, publishes several letters from the field: A lady from the vicinity of Gettysburg writes: "July 13th --We have been visiting the battle-field, and have done all we can for the wounded there. Since then we have sent another party, who came upon a camp of wounded Confederates in a wood between the hills. Through this wood quite a large creek runs. This camp contained between two hundred and three hundred wounded men, in every stage of suffering; two well men among them as nurses.--Most of them had frightful wounds.--A few evenings ago the rain, sudden and violent, swelled the creek, and thirty-five of the unfortunates were swept away; thirty-five died of starvation. No one had been to visit them since they were carried off the ba

Lincoln's tyranny. --The Catholic Bishop of Liverpool (England), in a recent address, delivered there, said: "Think you that the imperialism of Russia is more tyrannical, or that it crushes more people than Abraham Lincoln, who is the representative of a Liberal Government in the Republic across the ocean? No; there is no tyranny more terrible than that which bears the banner of liberty — that banner which crushes the liberty of others whilst it raises up itself, which brings itself into fame; because it has trodden down almost everything else that may be near it."
The Davenport Brothers in Liverpool — an exciting scene — destruction of their Cabinet. The Davenport Brothers were mobbed at Liverpool, England, on the 15th ultimo. The Post of that city says: "The audience elected Mr. Cummins and Mr. Hulley as the committee to tie the brothers. The Davenports objected at first, but ultimately agreed. Ira Davenport, who wriggled and twisted a good deal during the operation, and at its conclusion turned round suddenly to Dr. Ferguson. Mr. Cummins shrugged his shoulders and walked away, while Dr. Ferguson immediately stepped up, and instantaneously Ira Davenport stood free.
