n arrested by order of the President, and ordered to trial, for furnishing to the public press, and requesting the publication of, the details of the Wilmington expedition, thereby causing the enemy to reinforce the works at Federal Point. Mr. Osborn is now in the Old Capitol prison at Washington. Miscellaneous. Gold was quoted in New York on Wednesday at 223 3-8. The New York Wold, of Wednesday morning, sets afloat a story that the French and English Ministers have notified Mr. Seward of the intention of their Governments to recognize the Southern Confederacy, on the Government of the latter abolishing slavery. Aaron H. Cragin, the newly-elected United States Senator from New Hampshire, for the term of six years from the 4th of March next, was born in Vermont in 1821. He is a lawyer by profession. The New York News printed the Confederate Constitution in full on New Year's day, and declared it better than the Constitution of the United States, because of its
We are given to understand by Northern journalists that W. H. Seward, A. M., will deliver an eulogium upon the late Edward Everett. We know of no one who could more appropriately sing the funeral dirge. They were brethren in patriotism and elevation of character.--Both were devoted to the cause of the Union, and neither of them ever thought of their own interests. If there was any human weakness about either of these great men, it was a total neglect and oblivion of number one. Seward prefers that Lincoln should be in the Presidency to wearing the purple himself, and Everett, at an early age, sacrificed the Church for the State. We should like to hear Seward's funeral oration. An incidental allusion might be made in it to the death of the country. We have no wish to speak evil of the dead; least of all, of any man who once had claims, apparently, to our respect and admiration. Even when the veil has fallen, and we discover that we had been duped and humbugged, the

We fancy that a halo surrounds it; that a luminous shadow attends it; that troops ohe South." Let the "old friends" call upon Mr. Hunter and received the affectionate souvenir. Mr. Seward could hardly suppose that his friends here would ever forget him.--There are monuments to his start from their bloody shrouds and wander through their old loved homes, whispering the name of Seward. Not even Lincoln has such claims upon Confederate admiration. He has neither the heart nor the face of Seward. Born upon Southern soil, he cannot altogether eradicate all impulses of humanity from his sound and all traces of honesty from his visage. Mr. Hunter has our sympathies. We woether eradicate all impulses of humanity from his sound and all traces of honesty from his visage. Mr. Hunter has our sympathies. We would rather be cursed by any other man than blessed by Seward.
ed that there is something in it. The reason for Mr. Lincoln keeping it so quiet is said, by a high official, to be that, if he were to disclose what he knew, the very purpose to be accomplished might be baffled entirely. Advices from Fortress Monroe this afternoon are to the effect that Mr. Lincoln found them more disposed to reconciliation than he had anticipated, and that he will return to-night, reaching here by Saturday noon. Governor Dennison, Attorney-General Speed, and Secretary Seward, are believed to be the only Cabinet ministers in full communion with the rebel chiefs; and, with the exception of the two Blaris, none outside are cognizant of the purposes of the negotiations. Many leading Senators who, at first, would not listen to such a thing as Mr. Lincoln treating with them, are now strong in the belief that this move will bring about a speedy peace. General Dix left to-night for New York, after having been all day in consultation with Secretary Stanton. At
ot. 20. That when he says that is the fact, he has the power to hang, roast, broil, banish or stew every person in the United States. (See Lincoln to Corning and others.) 21. That if the State Governors and Legislatures don't suit him, the provost-marshal will keep them in order. (See New York Times) 22. That by touching "a bell" Lincoln has more power than any one, aside from the Almighty, has ever attempted to exercise on earth, and that all his pimps have just as much. (See Seward to Lyons, and Burnside to the Judge.) 23. That it is the duty of white men to marry sooty wenches. (See Eider Tilton.) 24. That all men ought to have niggers marry their daughters. (See Bishop Judkins.) 25. That love for the mate blacks consists in putting them where David put Uriah. (See Port Hudson and Morris Island.) 26. That Hannibal was a nigger. (See Solicitor Whiting.) The corollary would seem to be that when we die we should go to a lamp-black Heaven.-- N. H
equires incessant labor to produce the bare necessaries of life, have long looked with an envious and greedy eye upon the rich plains, the genial suns and the overflowing comfort of Southern life. The abolition crusade has been manipulated by W. H. Seward with no other design than to pave the way for an exodus of the overflowing Northern hive to the green pastures and fertile fields of the American Italy. If the object of this invasion were the restoration of the American Union, what easier than for Seward to propose to our Commissioners reconstruction and a guarantee of the rights enjoyed by the South in the old Government? But he had no such purpose. He made demands which he was sure we would refuse, only to have a pretext for drawing "the sword of justice," or, what is meant thereby, exterminating, as far as practicable, the Southern population, and transferring every acre of Southern land to Northern hands. Now that this diabolical purpose is deliberately avowed, we shall
lly able to repel any attack he might conclude to make upon us. At daylight this morning everything was quiet, and it was not known whether our troops were expected to push the reconnaissance further, to erect substantial works connecting with the left of our main line, or to return to their original positions in the vicinity of the Weldon railroad. The Late peace mission. Lincoln was to send in his report on Wednesday to the United States Senate of his visit to Hampton Roads. Seward is said to have already prepared reports of the interview, to be dispatched to the foreign courts. A letter about the return of the Confederate commissioners says that, on the flag-of-truce boat, they were hospitably entertained, and were visited by Major-General Ord. It adds: The commissioners, upon their return, were in the best of spirits, and entered fully and zestfully into the genuine and luxurious hospitality of the distinguished Union officer delegated by the President to enter
to his recent interview, in Hampton Roads, with Messrs. Stephens, Hunter and Campbell. It fills three or four columns in closely printed type, and is chiefly filled up with business telegrams — the real report of the interview being contained in Seward's circular to the United States ministers abroad. We give the report, cutting out some of the dry telegrams about the admission into Grant's lines of the three Confederates: To the Honorable the House of Representatives: In response t put them in communication, the following dispatch was sent: War Department, Washington, D. C.,February 1, 1865. Major T. T. Eckert, care General Grant, City Point, Virginia: Call at Fortress Monroe and put yourself under direction of Mr. Seward, whom you will find there. A. Lincoln. On the morning of the 2d instant, the following telegrams were received by me respectively from the Secretary of State and Major Eckert: Fort Monroe, Virginia, February 1, 1865, 11:30 P
dered that a national salute be fired to-morrow noon, February 22d, at West Point, and at every fort, arsenal and army headquarters of the United States, in honor of the restoration of the flag of the Union over Fort Sumter. Edwin M. Stanton. Secretary of War. Department of State, Washington, February 21. The department buildings will be illuminated on the night of Washington's birthday in honor of the recent triumphs of the Union. By order of the President. [Signed] W. H. Seward. A salute of one hundred guns was fired here to-day in honor of the occupation of Charleston by our forces. New York,February 21.--The Mayor of this city has issued a proclamation urging all citizens to celebrate Washington's birthday to- morrow. The Seventh regiment will make a full parade, in honor of Sherman's recent victories, the restoration of our flag to Fort Sumter, and the fall of Charleston. A meeting of prominent citizens will be held to-morrow, to arrange for
judice. It calls for the amendment of the foreign enlistment act. The Times says the acquittal does not negative the fact that there was gross violation of the law, even if Rumble was the tool of others. The Times says the Fort Fisher affair certainly developed a new step in the art of war, and demonstrated the possibility of making turret ships sea-going. The dispatches of Lord Lyons relative to the St. Albans raid have been published. Earl Russell's dispatch to Lord Lyons, dated November 16, notices the handsome terms in which Mr. Seward acknowledges the co-operation of the Canadian Government, and adds: "Her Majesty's Government trusts that such faithful co-operation in the performance of friendly offices may long continue on both sides." Spain. Porto Rico advices, via Madrid, say that a party, hostile to Spain, were again agitating that country, and that some political agents from the United States had been arrested and expelled by the authorities.
