n him is unjust, and not borne out by the facts."He then intimated to the protestants that they could go. A large number of the of the friends of Colonel Baker, mistrusting what was going to happen, took occasion to be on hand. Of course they were quite indignant, and some of them denounced the protestants one by one as they passed out of the Executive mansion. This affair will have a tendency to change the face of the California State somewhat.--It is the absorbing subject for the gossipers to-day. In accordance with the agreement made in the morning, Senator Baker and Messrs. L. Stanford, John Satterlee, C. Wattrous and Judge Mott, had a second protracted interview with the President this afternoon. A compromise was effected after considerable discussion, according to which Senator Baker and Messrs. Stanford and Satterlee will constitute a committee, upon whose recommendations the California appointments will be made. This will put an end to the factious squabble.
The Nineteenth Mississippi Regiment. The last detachment of this gallant and fine-looking corps reached this city on Sunday last, and has since been organized and mustered into the service of the Confederate States "for and during" the war. This regiment, we believe, is one of the first, if not the first, that has been raised for the whole were it was raised by Brigadier General Mott, of the Mississippi army, assisted by the Hon. L Q. C. Lamar, of the same State, under an authorization from President Davis. The regiment numbers about 800 men. The following is a list of the officers; C. H. Mort, Colonel. L. Q. C. Lamar Lieutenant Colonel. --Major.* A. R. Govan, Adjutant. C. M. Thompson, Quartermaster. S. B. Malone, Commissary Oscar Rarbour, Sergeant Major. J. W. C. Smith, Surgeon. W. F.

Boston, June 29.--The St. Domingo advices of the 17th say that Spanish men-of-war are in St. Wana Bay, and that storehouses were being erected on the shore. Baltimore, June 29.--Six regiments from the North have passed through here for Washington within the past twenty-four hours. Jefferson City, Mo., June 29.--Attorney General Mott declined to take the Federal oath, and is held as a prisoner. St. Louis, June 29--The verdict of the jury in the case of shooting citizens by the United States troops, is, that it was done without provocation. New York, June 29--The Washington correspondent of the New York Post says the New Jersey regular regiment in passing through Baltimore was greeted with cheers for Jeff, Davis. The correspondent of the Tribune says that Colonel Allen, of the New York 1st Regiment
passed Vandernerkin's and Vanderberg's houses on their way to the former place, and when about half a mile from it, by some unaccountable blunder Col. Owens's Irish regiment, of Philadelphia, in the darkness of the night, mistaking, for rebels, Capt. Mott's battery, which was in the advance, sustained by Col. Baker's California regiment, Baxter's Philadelphia Zouaves, and Col. Freedman's cavalry, fired a full volley into the troops last mentioned, killing and wounding a large number. The California regiment, not knowing from whom the firing came, returned it with marked effect. The horses attached to Mott's battery became unmanageable, and the tongues of the caissons were broken, owing to the narrowness of the road. Lieut. Bryant, having command of the first section, ordered the guns to be loaded with grape and canister, and soon had them in range to rake the supposed enemy, when word was sent to him that he was in the company of friends. All was excitement, and a long t

Upon the authority of the British Annual Register, I mentioned that Mr. Laurens, on passage to Holland as minister from the colonies, was captured in a "Congress packet, the Mercury." It appears however from Mr. Lauren's correspondence that the Mercury was a Dutch packet, and that Holland was then a neutral. Grand review — a sham battle. Washington, Nov. 22. --Gen. Smith's division, including the brigades of Gens. Hancock, Brooks, and Brannon, and Mott's and Barr's batteries, and Friedman's cavalry, was to have been reviewed this afternoon by Gen. McCrellan, but as public business prevented him from being present, Gen. Smith himself reviewed the division. After passing in review the regiments were drawn up in line of battle, the artillery occupying, rominent points, and Friedman's cavatry having been posted in a position to make a charge. The infantry and artillery first opened the fire which was continued by the entire division for n

Munificent contribution for the Charleston sufferers. --A correspondent sends us a list of the amount collected for the sufferers by the late fire at Charleston from the officers and privates composing the Nineteenth Regiment Mississippi Volunteers, commanded by Colonel C. H. Mott. The aggregate amount reaches the sum of $1,020.50, It will thus be seen that the Nineteenth Mississippi are not only ready to endure the hardships of the service and encounter the dangers of the battle-field, with a small pittance in the way of money; but that they are equally willing to contribute of that limited pittance a generous moiety for the houseless and destitute. This amount was raised immediately upon reading the circular of the Commanding General and after a few words from the Colonel, without any effort to induce more than a small contribution from each of the men present.

Smith's division, in defiance of rain, darkness and mud, started out last evening on a reconnaissance towards Fairfax CourtMott's battery, attached to Gen. Smith's division, in defiance of rain, darkness and mud, started out last evening on a reconnaissance towards Fairfax Courthouse, accompanied by Col. Lord and a detachment of dragoons. He returned a little after daylight this morning. They scouted first about Hunter's Mills, and around Peacock and Freedom hills. Disgusted at coming across none of the enemy, they pushed for Fairfax Court-House, where they found a body of cavalry pickets. Capt. Norteturning the fire, they plunged spurs into their horses and sped away at their utmost speed. Our men did not pursue, and none were hit by the exchange shots. Captain Mott ascertained the fact, that the rebel picket lines have been removed considerably inside from where they were a short time ago. The rejection of Mr. Segar'
n, and they were the same yesterday as they are to day, and will remain so forever. The unlimited power of Congress, as advocated by the Senator from Maine, is only a foundation for despotism. The functions of Congress are civil and legislative, and it cannot control unlimited war power. He contended that the supreme Court had settled this question, and decided that the power was in the President. He cited from the case of Luther vs. Borden, 7th Howard, pp. 43 and 46; also, Martin vs. Mott, 12th Wheatley. If the President abuses the power there is a remedy in Congress, but if Congress usurps the war power there is absolutely no remedy. He cites further the case of Cross vs. Harrolson, growing out of the state of things in California. California was conquered in 1848, but Congress had no power to legislate for it at all, and yet the President instituted a form of Government for it. But this bill relates to property not captured or expected to be captured, and is not restricted
C. S. Military Prisons, on Cary street, and his conduct being deemed suspicious, he was arrested and required to give an account of himself. Being put in charge of Mr. Ross, clerk of the prison, he made an assault on that gentleman, rendering it necessary that an armed guard should be placed over him. Lieut. Turner, who has charge of the prison, came in about 10 o'clock, and in reply to his questions, the man said his name was Ned Brown; that he belonged to the 21st Mississippi Regulars, Col. Mott, and to Capt. Harris's company. He afterwards denied this, and said that the Southern Confederacy did not owe him anything, and he did not owe the Southern Confederacy anything; also, that Gen. McClellan would soon be along from Yorktown and make everything right in Richmond. He appeared to be facetiously sarcastic in his remarks. Lieut. Turner said it was his duty to send him before the Provost Marshal, and started the man thither in charge of a guard. The two had proceeded about a sq
