the horizon all Liberty and Light would disappear from the Universe. Like all Northern men, he was a Consolidations, the head and front of consolidation, and, the issue of battle once joined, it would have been as natural and irresistible for him to support the Federal Administration as to breathe the vital air. Whether he would have contented himself with a moderate and decent "loyalty, " like that of Fillmore, or have plunged into the depth of personal debasement, like Everett and Cushing, must be, of course, a matter of conjecture. The corruption of the grave which has seized upon his body is nothing to the corruption of that living death which would have fastened upon a soul like his, degraded to the companionship of Wilson and Butler. There is another sad reflection in the paragraph we have quoted. In view of the certainty that the North would demand of the South the abolition of slavery, he, Daniel Webster, begs the people of the South to accede to that demand! W

eneral Butler was once to the New Orleans Norfolk Secesh. The Blowing up of the Albemarle — Yankee Glorifications over it — what it results in. The Yankees are glorifying immensely in the destruction of the Albemarle at Plymouth. Lieutenant Cushing, the "hero" of the affair, has arrived in Washington, and is the lion of the day. Secretary Welles is to recommend to Congress to vote him a resolution of thanks, and he is promoted to Lieutenant Commander. The affair has released from duty in Albemarle sound eleven Yankee steamers which can now be used elsewhere. The following is Lieutenant Cushing's official report of the matter: On the night of the 27th, having prepared my steam launch, I proceeded up towards Plymouth with thirteen officers and men, partly volunteers from the squadron. The distance from the mouth of the river to the ram was about eight miles, the stream averaging in width some two hundred yards, and lined with the enemy's pickets. A mile below the town
king him for the efforts he her capture in a neutral port and protesting against her seizure. The matter is a serious one, and may be so regarded by the Brazilian Government. The capture of Plymouth. Commander Macomb's official report of the Yankee recapture of Plymouth, North Carolina, claims that twenty-two cannon, many small arms, and large amounts of ammunition, besides some prisoners, were captured. An official inspection of the late rebel ram Albemarle, blown up by Lieutenant Cushing on the night of the 27th ultimo, shows that her machinery is completely submerged and the entire top of her casemate blown off. She lies on the bottom of the Roanoke river at Plymouth. Her armament is two 8-inch rifled guns, one of which was still above the water when the forces took possession of the town. Miscellaneous. Gold was quoted in New York on Tuesday at 244 1-2. The gunboat Tulip burst her boiler in the Potomac on Monday, killing dead sixty persons, including W
ondent of the Baltimore American gives the following account: The naval assault. From Lieutenant Farquhar, of the Santiago, who accompanied the landing party from the navy, I have some interesting particulars of the repulse of these gallant men. Flag-Captain Breeeze accompanied the expedition, with Lieutenant Preston, assistant flag-captain; Lieutenant Benjamin H. Porter, commander of the flagship Malvern; Lieutenant Commanding Lamsden, of the Gettysburg; Lieutenant Farquhar, Lieutenant Cushing, and a large number of acting masters' ensigns and masters' mates. The sailors were in three divisions, under the command of Lieutenant Commander Cushman, Lieutenant Selfridge and Lieutenant Parker, whilst the marines were commanded by Captain Dawson, of the marine corps. The sailors and marines, on reaching a point three-quarters of a mile from the fort, were opened upon with grape and canister from two of the embrasures, whilst the main portion of the garrison appeared on the
Union frenzy that carried away the Northern conservative masses at the beginning of the war. He might have stood by the Union and yet preserved his own dignity and consistency. He might have stood aloof from the crusade of blood like R. C. Winthrop, or, whilst he held by the Union, have protested, like Franklin Pierce, against the crimes that have been committed in its name. There was no necessity that he should make himself a superserviceable lackey of Lincoln, and emulate B. F. Butler, Cushing and Dickerson in shameless political tergiversation. He might, with perfect safety to his reputation and himself, have refrained from a violent and demonstrative antagonism to his old opinions and principles. There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of his own party in Massachusetts who, at this very hour, are opposed to the whole system of coercion, and shudder at its gigantic horrors of blood and crime. Edward Everett might, at least, have drawn his mantle about him and looked sadly and
last night, and was obliging enough to answer their signals, whether right or wrong we do not know. Two of them, the Stag and Charlotte, from Bermuda, loaded with arms, blankets, shoes, etc., came in and quietly anchored near the Malvern, and were taken possession of. The Stag was commanded by Richard H. Gayle, a lieutenant in the rebel navy, and belonging to the rebel Government. A number more are expected, and we will, I hope, catch a portion of them. I entrusted this duty to Lieutenant Cushing, who performed it with his usual good luck and intelligence. These two are very fast vessels and valuable prizes. They threw a portion of their papers overboard immediately on finding they were trapped. I enclose a list of guns captured by the navy since the surrender of Fort Fisher, and the names of the different works. This number, added to those taken around Fisher, makes one hundred and sixty-eight guns in all, most of them heavy ones, that have been taken. I enclose a

The Baltimore American of Friday evening says: The notorious rebel guerrilla, Marry Gilmor, who arrived here at a late hour on Wednesday night, yesterday left here for Fort Warren, in charge of Major Young and three Federal scouts in rebels clothes. Captain Wiegel learned that Gilmor's life was endangered at the Relay House, when he proceeded to that post with an armed guard and protected him from danger. United States Marshal Murray, in obedience to the instructions from Washington, left New York for Montreal, to take charge of twelve of the St. Albans raiders, who will be delivered to him there, and brought to New York by him for trial. Captain J. M. Gillis, superintendent of the naval observatory in Washington, died suddenly of apoplexy on Thursday, aged about fifty-three years. Admiral Porter has made over the prize money due him for the capture of the ram Albemarle by a force under him to Lieutenant Cushing. General James S. Negley has resigned.
he Commission has proven that Butler received two-fifths of all cotton brought here, his brother-in-law one-fifth, and middle-men, of which Johnston was one, two-fifths, the Government getting but one-half of that which was rightfully due it. You may expect even more astounding revelations than these. Raids of the enemy. A telegram tells of a raid of the enemy up the Washita river, and their destruction of the people's provisions.--In another paper we find the following: Lieutenant Cushing, of the navy, has been on another expedition. On the night of the 4th instant, with four boats and fifty men, he took possession of the little town of All Saints, on Little river, South Carolina, holding it all next day, and capturing a large amount of cotton, some of which was destroyed and some carried off. On the 6th instant, some of his men routed a rebel force engaged in collecting provisions for their army in the vicinity of Charlotte inlet. The St. Albans Raiders. A t
ts guns uninjured, and before they had time to blow up the magazine. A number of prisoners were captured, but the larger portion of the garrison made good their escape to Wilmington. A pursuit was immediately ordered, and at the time Lieutenant Cushing left with his dispatches for Washington, Admiral Porter had ordered the monitors Monadnock and Canonicals, with the gunboats, up to Wilmington. It was expected that the city would be in our possession on Monday, beyond a doubt, as rumors hwas rapidly evacuating it. Fort Anderson was the only work of any importance that barred the passage of our troops and naval vessels up to the city. The evacuation of Fort Anderson is said to have been hastened by a daring adventure of Lieutenant Cushing, he having floated a large scow up the river with the tide past the fort. It was discovered by the rebels, who thought it, in the darkness, to be a monitor that had flanked the fort, and caused a precipitate retreat. Foreign relations
