The United States steamer Cahawba arrived at New York on Tuesday from New Orleans, having on board the Rev. Messrs. Leaccek, Goodrich, and Fulton, pastors of Episcopal churches in New Orleans, who were sent to New York for refusing to pray for the President of the United States. A letter from New Orleans to the New York Herald says: These three gentlemen having persistently refused agreed to read the service over the body, and afterwards, at the remonstrance of his church members, declined. Dr. L is an Englishman by birth, but an American by naturalization. Dr. Goodrich is the rector of the church which Major Strong closed two Sundays ago. He is a native of New York, but has resided South almost from instance Mr. Fulton was a private in the regiment known as the Confederate Guards, and candidly avows himself an unconditional Secessionist.

That friend has written a letter to the Mobile Tribune, from which we extract the following: Revs. Leacock, Goodrich, and Fulton, It is known, have been arrested and sent, I understand, to Fort Lafayette. My informant states that the Rev. Dr. Hodges, also of New Orleans, is to share the same fate next week. Why he was respited so long I did not learn. The charge agaed and instructed the people on the stirring topics of the times. But with all his threats and bravado, he could not now the spirits of these Christian men. They left in fine spirits, and triumphed in the hour of triumph of the "Beast." Rev. Mr. Fulton waved his hand to the friends who crowded the wharf to see them off, and exclaimed exultingly: "When we return to you, friends, it will be under the glorious banners of the Confederacy" Some one asked him if he were not afraid to express him

Curtin received a dispatch from Chambersburg which states that Jenkins was at Waynesburg, twelve miles from Chambersburg, Saturday evening. He had been plundering the houses among the mountains. Gen. Couch has received a dispatch confirming the report that the rebel cavalry were at Gettysburg.

It is mostly mountainous, but has some fertile land in the valleys. Adams county has an area of 530 square miles, and a population of about 26,000.

Gettysburg, the chief town, is a thriving place, the population having increased between 1850 and 1853 from 2,150 to 3,000.

It is proposed in the Common Council of New York to erect a monument to Fulton, who first successfully applied steam to navigation. If ever a public benefactor deserved such an honor, this was the man. But it is wrong to speak of it as an honor to him. It is a dishonor to his countrymen that his name has never been comendants of some of the boundless wealth that his invention conferred upon his country. New York, the Empire State, owes her greatness principally to two men--Fulton and Clinton. They were neither of them politicians. The politicians are a disputatious, pestiferous and unproductive race, who never do any good to mankind. The chained to his triumphal car. All that Clinton accomplished was the dust of the balance compared to the fruits of Fulton's triumph. Clinton labored for a State, Fulton for the world, and wherever the hot breath of steam pants over the waters, it tells the story of his fame. It is strange how little consideration the world

Dr. Jenner was violently denounced and threatened with disgrace because he advocated vaccination for small-pox! Columbus, Fulton, Fitch, all suffered by the opposition to their several discoveries and reforms.

Fulton was laughed at and neglected by the "respectable" and "intelligent" of his day, and they let him die in extreme indigence. Examples of folly, prejudice, hatred, condemnation, and crucifixion of pioneers in anything absolutely new need not be multiplied. From an outward stand-point, this opposition seems "a cross too heavy to be borne-- "But truth shall conquer at the last, For round and round we run, And ever the right comes uppermost, And ever is justice done."
