down his own midnight dreams und such scenes as his peculiar Imagination can picture to himself?a gift furnished, we believe, to but few mortals. Ilis inglorious career, as revealed in the Bull run letter, settles, we think, the meaning of tho handle of LL. D. appended to his name. It reminds us of tho story of the Irishman who had a friend upon whom the title of LL. D. hud been conferred by some university. When asked V lmt was the meaning of tho LL. D., he replied, in a meditative manner, "that ho could Hot exactly tell. I know him well, and am intimate with him, but the LL. D. bates me." After a little study ho added, " there must be a mistake in placing the letters; it should be L. I). L., which means liar, damn liar?for such ho is." A Contrast Between the Northern and SoiTHKitN Banks.?The Charleston, Richmond, mid other Southern papers assail the banks of the Confederate States because they will not lend money to their bogus government to carry on the war airainst the Union. Now, the the reason why the banks of the South w ill not lend money to their government is very obvious?they have no confidence in its stability, and no good security for the repayment of their loans. The Southern journals arc talking of coercing the banks, but that would be found impracticable. IIow different the course of the Northern banks! The bankers of Boston, New York and Philadelphia have pledged themselves to the government for .a loan amounting to S ISO,000,000. Why do they loan so large n sum to the government? Is it because they are more patriotic than the Southern bankers? Not hi an. ino reason is inui uiey uuvu iuu lunu in the permanence of the Union and in the overthrow of the rebellion. Hence they are not afraid to give credit to a government whose securities ore as good as gold and at no distant day will be above par. Manufacturing Attemits in the Rebel States.?We have received sundry circulars from the Confederate States, representing in the most glowing colors the "unexampled prosperity" of certain manufacturing companies, which have been recently established, in Georgia, and elsewhere. "The healthy condition of affairs" (a stereotyped phrase by the way with phaky concerns) is enlarged upon, in connection with lists of figures in which the assets are put down as tremendous and the indebtedness as considerably less than nothing. How ridiculous ! What absurd bosh and buncombe! Every child knows that niggers are wholly incapable of working in factories, and that there is 110 surplus white population whatever, fitted for such work. If the works of Manchester, Lowell, Birmingham and Sheffield could all be transferred into South Carolina, Alabama or Louisiana tomorrow, they would be useless because they neither have, nor can obtain, any efficient operatives. They have forced every able bodied, intelligent Southern man into the army, and Northern folks have either been tarred and feathered, hung or driven away. Mission or Boston Financiers to Washington.?A committee has recently left the capital of the Bay State for Washington, which has promised to give a certain modicum of money to the government, to carry on the war, provided several of the Cabinet mombers are dismissed. IIow ridiculously absurd! Only citizens of an avowedly abolition city could dream of endeavoring to embarrass the administration, by hampering it with burthens it neither can nor will submit to. It must be the judge of its own acts. New York capitalists have had the good sense to give their wealth and to pledge their prosperity, without proffering any other request than that the money they advanced shall be efficiently employed to carry on the war with activity, and put an end to rebellion in the most prompt manner possiblo. This is as it should be. We repudiate the narrow mindedness of the small potato bankers of Massachusetts.

Tlio circumstances of the affair arc as follows:?The deceased was sentenced to six months' incarceration in the county jail for assault and battery, and had served nearly all of his torm. Ho was allowed the prlvilego of going outside of the jail yard, but was ordered to keep within the bounds known as the "limits." On Wednesday he wont outsido of the prescribed lines, and it coming to the kuowlcdgo of his keeper, the next day ho determined to look him up for the remainder of his unexpired term. Accordingly, when Daniels came in on Thursday afternoon, the turnkoy, Mr. Stephen Crawford, ordered him to his cell. Daniols weut along the corridor until ho nearly reached his cell, when, with n trcmenduous spring, he clutched Mr. Crawford, lirsl by the hair of the head and then In his side. So sudden was the movement, and such the strength of the assailant, tiiat Mr. Crawford was immediately Uuorod, and was completely at the mercy of the rulllan. Finding that his cries brought no help, nnd that Daniels was about to carry out his threat to tako his life. Mr. Crawford drew a pistol and told Daniels that if ho did not release him he would Blioot him. He, however, would not lot go, and cndcavorod to get at tho throat of the k.-cper. Feeling there was no hope for bis release but In wounding his assailant, Mr. Crawford flred bis pistol, bat from liis prostrate position he could not take any aim, but the hall took effect in tho heart of Duniols, and, with one piercing shriek, he released his bold, rolled over, and was a lifeless corpse. Mr. Crawford immediately went to the Sheriff", Mr. William Blakoney. and gave himself up, and lie was locked up for the night, until tho Coroner's inquest could be held. Karly next morning the Coroner summonod a Jury, and neveral of the prisoners testitled that two of their nurobtr, who were confined in tho Jail, had oflbred Daniels fx (JO to obtain tno Keys, and mat If no would got them thoy would roloaso all wlio wanted to go. Ah Tar as the shooting of Daniels was concerned, thoy all tentitled that Mr. Crawford acted only In self defence. He stated that he did not intend kllliug Daniels, but from li's posttlm and the aggravating circumstances of the case, he was obliged to fire at the deceased prisoner. The Coroner's jury brought in a verdict entirely acquitting Mr Crawford. He has since left White Mains .as tcrno of Daniels' friends have threatened to deal harshly with 1dm.

Tho'accused, it is alloged, sent for Mr. lionrioll, and representing that ho was an su thorizod agent of the United Ktates government, ordered n lot of shirta and drawers, valued attt212. Mr. Bunnell, not having any doubt of the truth of Lataon's representations, delivered the goods, and subsequently a bill was presented for the amount. It was then ascertained that Lalson had no authority to buy the goods, and that tho complainant must hold tho accused personally res)ionsible for tbs amount of the bill.

Mr. Bustoed (addressing the Colonel) said ho had the happiness of being the medium of presenting to him, in b. half of his friends m New York, and lor his use in the war, the charger on his left. It was presented to him in consideration of his character as a gentleman, as well us of his qualities as a soldier. ill making this present they weiuunt unmindful of Colone l McKoynulds' former service s to the country. Iti the Mexican war lie hud boon one of tho first in the field, and retired wounded and with honors, and raised again he was ready for action. Although a citizen of the United Slates only by adoption, his desire for tlio welfare of tbe country a second time, impelled liim to hazard tho duugers of war, thai its government might be upheld. The speaker regarded the present time as one of th" very deepest interest. There never was a time when the country more needed high-toned and courageous nun than now. T<> be one of ttie soldiers whom tbe exigency needed, tho Colonel had given up his government pension to re-enter the lie d of glorious activity. lie (Mr II.) would not transgress the propriety of the occaslou by referring to politics.

It was an ell'urt to uphold the constitution, by men irrespective of purty, against an Intestine foe. After deciding our capAeity to take care of the constitution, then we could scttlo the questions ef difference incidental to politics. He was not speaking this only for the friends of the Colonel, but, he behoved, in saying so he fqpoke the sent menu of all patriots. (Applause.) Hehoped the Colonel would return from this war with more glorious results than he had from the Mexican war. The men (turning to thorn) understood their commander? (applause)?ttiey knew ho would lead them oil to victory. (Applause.) They knew his past history, and were will ing to serve with zeal under such a commander. (Ap planse.) Mr. Uusloed closed by saying that ho had no deubt both they and their commander would give a good account of themselves, to the satisfaction of tho oarnost desires and hopes of llioir friends. (Applause.) Throe cheers for the Colonel wore called for from the rauks, and given with much heartiness by llio men. The Colonel then mounted the horse in wailing, uncovered, ami replie 1 to Mr. Husteed, that he should do injustice to his own feelings if ho failed to respond to bis expressions. He appreciated to the fullest extent the present. In re gard to the allusions to bis services already rendered in the Ucld, ho could only say he had done what a citizen in the |iosition which ho occupied should do (applause); ho defended the Mars ai d Stripes?the emblem of our country's brightness ami glory. Al though r.ot a citizen of New York, ho was indebted to New Yorkers for much favor. Ho was from Michigan?an adopted citizen ef that State. He thanked the police and tho pre.- s of this city for their many acts of kindness to hltn nlnl his legiinellt, who were gob g to 111.field not us partisans, but to light the battles of the country.

In conclusion he returned his thanks to the donors for Tho charger la named I.ightfoot. Its color is dappled gray. It is a Virginia bred animal, very docile, yet ac live. Mr. Dlsbrnw formerly owned it, but wine tlrao ago ho sold it to a Mr. Morrill, fri m whom it was purchase; for presentation to Colonel Mi-Reynolds, at tho price of $600. Tho Colonel was a Major in the Mexican war, was wounded in his bridlo arm, bo that ho can only ralsj it a short distance, ami therefore ho requires a charger hocan easily guide, llis fi lends have suited him perfectly in this respect. 1.1*1 dfoot is trained to lire and music. After tho presentation tho olllcers took th dr respective IH.sitioiiS, and then the regiment, a section of |m>11co, headed by Shelton's baud i f sixteen pieces, at half past one o'clock marched off through Union square to Itroad way, and thence down to pior No. 1 North river, whore tiicy embarked for Elizabethport, their destination being Washington via Harrisburg. Tho regiment numb, rod about seven hundred men. One of tho (lerman companies wore green sprigs on the front of their caps, and another had gray blankets rolled tip and slung over the right shoulder and under tho left aim. It was expected that Mrs. Lincoln would have been present and presented tho regiment witli a stand of colors, but that lady did not leave her seclusion at Long Branch for that purpose, although the Colonel had intimation that she would make a presentation in person. About half-past three o'clook tho regiment arrived At pier No. 1 North river, where one of the Camden and Amboy boats was ready to take them aboard. Although Broadway was not so crowded as on previous occasions, still the enthusiasm of the people warm and gonial as ever, and cheer followed cheer as the men passed along. About live o'clock the steamboat loft the pier with the Lincoln Cavalry aboard, amidst cheers from a number of people. The following is n list of tlie officers , so far as Ihev have been appointed ?

The regiment will not be in a proper state of organiza tion until they reach Washington and get their horse?, Ac THE FIRST REGIMENT UNITED STATES CHASSEURS. This regiment is under orders and will march to day for Washington. It ha? upon its rolls more than men enough to composo a regiment of the minimum grade, many of its companies numbering their full maximum, so that although it leaves with nine numbered companies, these contain men more than sufficient to organize ten companies at the minimum limit. The object undoubt edly is to incite, by the desire of position, officers, the accomplishment of wheso wishes Is probably thus made to depend on their suecess in recruiting men. The regj. mcnt has been now for nearly a week in Camp Toniplrlnn at U k.. J >L. inexorable drill of Lieutenant Colonel Shaler. It has been remarked by officers of tbo regular army that thoir camp exceeds in military ordor, organization and oloanllness, any camp of volunteers they have over seen. A steamboat chartered by the United States Assistant Quartermaster will transport the regiment to-day from their camp to Amboy, whence It will disembark for WashingtonIts camp and garrison equipage, the baggage and all Its attendant appointments, will be transported with ItThe boat will arrive at about two o'clock, land tho troops at the foot of East Fourteenth street, from which point they will move to Broadway, and down Broadway to plor No. 1 North river, whero the boat again meeting them, they will re-embark for Ainboy. This regiment has been organizing about two months. Colonel John Cochrane commenced Just as the excitement which filled the earlier regiments was subsiding, and when all the usual impediments to recruiting under ordinary circumstances began to reappear. Ho persisted, however, and collecting into his regiment tho best military material unemployed, ho has organized a regiment which compares favorably with any heretofore organizod. It is noteworthy also that Colonel Cochrano's regiment has not been the favored object of any public assistance. The United States government having authorized men to raise it, furnished tho requisite rations, clothing, arms and equipments. But for those innumerable expenses attendant upon recruiting and collecting from points perhaps Ave hundrod miles apart, a thousand men, he has been cast, wo understand, entirely upon his own resources. It may, therefoie, be inforred that his regiment, as it has not been, will not be a burden upon tho taxed citizens of New York. The short time, too, within which tho roglment has boen prepared, is commendable. When it did not number a single man, other regiments which have "but just left?such as the Brooklyn Flialanx anil the Anderson Zouaves?were nearly complete. No doubt that insupcr" able obstacles opposed the more rapid progress of theso excellent regiments; still, the early completion of the United States Chasseurs is the no less laudable. The regimental headquarters in this city will still bo held as a recruiting station, from which tho men enrolled and mustered into service will bo immediately sent, when re. ceirod, forward to Washington, uniformed and equipped. WASHINGTON GREYS. As this regiment leaves for Washington on Saturday, there remains but littlo time to cnablo young men to Join tho regiment.

There is not an imaginable crime winch I am not charged with, but 1 can alford to bo generous to all my enemies. Knowing myself to be a man of truth, I court inquiry of all my deeds from boyhood, and defy the world to provo a charge unbecoming a man of honor, truth and justice. There Is no man who has tried harder to get up a good and true regimunt than I, and I now have trampled down all opposition, without the nid or six hundred dollars from all tho earth. Notwithstanding tho false reports, my regiment is not yet broken up, nor shall it be, as long ns I have ono true man to stand by me. I am ready to shoulder my musket and go where duty calls.

It gives us pleasuro to state that a number of the flour merchants of tho city, desirous of assisting in the philanthropic efforts now being made to supply the wants of the families of tho volunteer soldiers, contributed two hundred and flfty barrels of flour, which was put into a common stock, with the understanding that It would bo distributed under tho diroction ef the Union Defence Committco. For a number of days prist persons have been engnged in preparing two thousand bags for tho convenient distribution of the flour to the needy applicants, llfteen hundrod of which will bo given away in New York,and tho remaining live hundred In Hrooklyn. At noon yesterday ton two horse wagons, decorated with American flags, proceeded to the old Corn ivxonange. comer hi nroiuj luiu nirrvis, aim lo.iueil with one Dundrrd and Ally hags of flour each, the hags being stamped with the Stais and i?tri|ic8 and the appropriate motto, " God Id ops our volunteers." Tlio novel procession then marched up Broadway to Klghlh stroet. and those who understood tho nature of tho philanthropic undertaking in which the carmen?who had volunteered their services?wore engaged, gave vent to their approbation in loud demonstrations of applause. Tho Hour was deposited in the Cooper Institute. where, as has already been remarked, the Union Defence Committee will distribute it to those who have claims upon a share in this timely donation of the flour merchants. While wo are recording this muniflceut act on the pnrl of tho provision dealers, wo suggest to the Union Defence Committee tho propriety of providing for the necessities of tho families of our vuluntoors during tho approaching fall and winter, by making largo purchases of corn and IKitatoos, and other equally indispensable articles of food, which most be supplied from some source to the thousands who will liavo to depend upon tho charities of the benevolent for the necessaries of life. As the care of the wives and children of our citizens who arp now enlisted for the preservation of tho government, materially depends upon the Union IH'fcncc Committee, those gontlemen could not do 1 ictter than to lay in large supplies of potatoes and corn to supply tho wants of the thousands of hungry stomachs that It will bo their province to till. At the present lime potatoes can be purchased in tho intorior of the State for a mero bagatelle? from three to six cents per bushel; corn can bo hail for six cents a bushel, so plentiful is the supply, and butler could be purchased in largo quantities at tho rato of Six ceutaper pound.

Marshal Millward started for Fort Lafayette with this man on Saturday night, but new and im]>ortuut evidence being at that time adduced, ho was held over for a further hearing today. In the mean, time his dwelling, in Palmer street, Kensington, wus searched, nnd some curious belligerent contrivances brought to light; among them about 8,000 loot of extremely minute iusuluted telegraph wire, of the thickness of thread, wrapped in silk, and adapted to forming con nortion with any ordinary wire. The color of the thread

was green, and in some respects,It was similar to ttio fragments of cable picked up near Fortress Monroe. At u distance of ten yards this wire w as invisible, and it oould tie trailed through grass and herbage, over any extent of country, without deiocta n. The object of this wire was, doubtless, to lead oif messages from the government lines, and put the rebels Into jiossossion of every important movement. Kukcii insisted that it was an improved wire for insulating magnets; but well informed wltnessess disagreed with him. A percussion cap was likew ise discovered, that would ignite canuou cartridges through the thick metallic coverings, and thus avoid the necessity for tearing olf tho envelope. The model of a cannon, likewise, came to light, that the luveiitor supposes capable of splitting a sevonty-four frigate In half at a distanco of three miles. A miniature torpedo for submarine purposes, consisting essentially of a gulla |sirelia bug and tube was discovered, and this, from tlie prisoner's own admission, was to bo empliyod in blowing up war vessels.

Ho was at the battle of Manassas, under General Roauregurd, who declined to release him at tho intercession of his grandmother, Mrs Henry 1). Gilpin, hut he was afterwards released hy General Lee. Young Johnston held a Lieutenant's commission in the Confederate service, and his anxiety to servo his Southern friends seems to have equalled his affection lor his own relations. He determined to go buck to tho army, and took away a trunk weighing two hundred and lifty ismnds, containing maps of our forts and of tho seat of war. letters not yet directed. but lull of treasonable correspondence, an" niilll cient other mat ter to place him for a term of service In Fort Lafayette.

He made n a iy enemies among the commissioned oflicers from the beginning, and was once ordered lo he tied up and (logged, but seizing a musket lie swore to shoot down any man who laid hands up n liirn. Tills gallant conduct saved him for the time. When (he (Ivo years had expired Commander Hal'ard persuaded him to re-enlist, under promise of a commission.

McLaughlin took occasion to flog one of TnnsilPs marines to death one day, and the latter expised him in tlio St. Augustine (Fla.), JVnos for which ho was court-martialed, and found guilty of ''prevarication" in denying his signature. For this he was suspended for three years on half pay, during which time ho taught a naval school near Wash iuglon and married Miss Woenis, the dai g iter of a Methodist preacher. Ho was reinstated duimg Tyler's administration and made tlrst lieutenant. In the Mexican war he was breveted captain for a gallant defence of Guaymas, on the l'ncillc coast. Ho went to Paraguay as commander of marines amid much opposition, but always behaved with marked courage and forosiglit?owing everything to the government that raised him from a common fOldier, to desert It when imperilled and menaced. He is now in the neighborhood of fifty years of age, having been the recipient of federal bounty for about thirty years. His friends bad every confidence in his loyalty, but his resignation sots that matter forever at rest, and he has gone to Fort Hamilton, where ho will at least be uuublc to succor the rebellion. ithAlOVED TO FOrti LAFAYETTE.
