C. S. District Court. --The following is a summary of the business transacted in this court yesterday: Confederate States against Nathaniel Saunders, to sequestrate the property of --Clarke and others, alien enemies — case referred to Samuel G. Daniel, Fredericksburg, special commissioner. Cushing and others against Proctor — the plaintiffs being alien enemies, the case was dismissed, with judgment for defendants' costs. Confederate States against Nathaniel Carusi — the claim of F. D. Haroth was propounded, proved, and ordered to be paid by the Receiver. Thomas T. Hill qualified to practice as an attorney in this co
ns was issue by Gen. Grant when he entered Paducah. The General then made use of the following language: "I have not come to fight opinions, out to resist treason and overwhelm it. I am for sustaining the Constitution and the supremacy of the laws" Mr. Richardson said that he wished this proclamation could be written in fetter of gold on the sky, that everybody might see the correct doctrine. There never would have been an army of 600,000 men raised if the object had been avowed to overthrow the Constitution and create her Government. The war never would have been begun but for two elements at the North--namely, the Abolition party and the party beaded by Buchanan, Doucey, and Cushing, and that class of men. The letter were worse than the Abolitionists, because they were smart. These and other remarks of Mr.Richardson occasioned much laughter. The Senate's amendments to the army bill were read, and when the committee rose they were all concurred in. Adjourned.

the globe belongs, and who looks upon all men not owning property as interlopers on the demeanes of the Creator, and who considers a plague, pestilence, or war, by which they may be taken off, the minister of a Divine Police, arresting loafers and vagrants and consigning them to a place where they can repent at their leisure of their poverty and worthlessness. As to "solid men" meaning anything "solid" in morals, virtue, valor, or patriotism, of course it does not. Everett, Dickinson, Cushing & Co. --could anything be more "solid" in outward aspect? And yet, each of them has proved a mere shell, and a shell full of corruption and death. And no better specimens can anywhere be found of the "solid men" of the North. They are just as corrupt and depraved as the unsolid men, and a thousand times more hypocritical. The only difference between them and the "riff-raff" is, that the latter "wear their hearts upon their sleeves," and, contrary to the general impression, they are mor
s limits many virtuous and Christian people. What has become of them? Where have their reason and religion fled? We know that, even up to the hour of dissolution, the North had statement ripe in years, of approved judgment and experience, who had grown gray in public life, and who had associated for half a century with Southern representatives, so that they possessed every opportunity of understanding Southern as well as Northern character. There were Case, Everett, Winthrop, Dickinson, Cushing, and others, whose names will readily occur to every intelligent reader. How then, are we to understand the unrelieved and unmitigated brutality of the North in this war? Why have not their wise statesmen rebuked the madness of the people? Why, instead of recusing their madness, have they actually led the way in the popular phrensy and ferocity? We cannot believe that the North has been suddenly demoralized. Making all allowance for the excitement of the first burst of fury caused

most terrific right-handed hits over witnessed in any fight in the prize-ring. His gameness is unquestionable and well proved in all his battles, white his tremendous powers of hitting, activity, and science, are equally incontestable. Heenan, as is well known, has but two battles on his record — the first with Morrissey, and the second with Tom Sayers. The constant, regular, and daily practice with the gloves which he has had in the fulfillment of his professional engagement with Howe & Cushing's circus for the last eighteen mouths has had, it is stated, the effect of rendering him perfect in the theoretical knowledge of the art of boxing. In this respect, however, his opponent has had an equal advantage, as he has also been engaged in a similar capacity for nearly a twelvemonth. Altogether the merits of the two men may he considered as pretty evenly balanced, and lead us to anticipate one of the best and hardest contested battles ever recorded in the annals of the ring. H
