The following shows the daily average circulation of the New York Herald in each week foi the six weeks ending September 14, 18G0, and also that of the corresponding weeks in 1861, exhibiting the increase of 1861 over 1860:? Week Ending 1860. 1801. Increase.

" " " 121,200 July 22, Battle of Bull run 122,740 ,r 23, " ?' 128,160 " 24, " " 117,840 The circulation established by the above tables is greater than that of any other daily journal in the civilized world. In France the largest daily issue ever attained by a newspaper was that oi 70,000, reached by La Presse during the Be volution of 1848. The average daily circulation of tho London Ttmes is 50,000, and in times of great political excitement it has once or twice issued 60,000?never more. That of the Nkw York Hkrald exceed* the circulation of all the daily newspapers of this city?morning and evening?put together. The marked increase which has taken place in it during the last few weeks proves the extent to which the trade of the city and country, paralyzed for a time by the rebellion, is reviving. Business of every sort is rapidly resuming It* wonted activity, operatives finding lens difficulty in obtaining employment, and the advertising columns of the newspapers? the best index of the times?daily exhibit, in a large progressive addition to their trade announcements, all the evidences of returning prosperity. We need scarcely point out to those who find it necessary to aid the impulse thus given to their business by more extended publicity, the advantage of advertising in the journals which have the largest number of readers. One advertisement thus published is worth a dozen distributed amongst newspapers of inferior circulation and influence. THE SITUATION. The Kentucky news is still exciting. The bridge over the Rolling Fork, near Muldt augh's Ilill, has been destroyed, and the enemy lmd, on Thursday last, broken up the position on the hill which they had fortified. General B :ckner is reported to be iu command of the rebels. A general excitement prevailed yesterday, and oannon and other rms had been received in Louisville. Indiana troops were expected to help the Unl .n troops alrea Jy engaged. Telegraph communication South is entirely stopped, therefore nothing is accurately known of the movements of either side of the troops. War has been declared '?y the Legislature, the Union Home Guards being placed under the charge of Brigadier General Crittenden and the troops under Ceneral Anderson, who has the supreme control of the State arms and ammuni tion. From Lexington, via St. Loais, the intelligence is to the effect that Acting General Mulligan still held the fortifications on Wednesday, and that he had repulsed several assaults on the works made by General Price's rebel forces. The loss of the rebels in each case was very severe. Later reports tend to confirm the above. Colonel Richardson, with bis regiment of Home Guards, bad taken up position at Osage Bridge to resist the advance of General McCulloch's rebels, said to be 2,000 strong, and who are reported to be approaching Jcflerson City. "" The news from Washington is interesting. General McClellan has ordered that there shall be no firing upon the rebel pickets except to repel their advance, or to return a fire commcnced by them. This moderation does not seem to be appreciated by the rebels, as they have several iiiaes fired on the Union pickets since the order was issued. Our Washington despatches state that General Fremont's military action in Missouri has given cause to the 1'iesident for dissatisfaction. It is further stated that General Fremont will unquestionably be called personally to Washington to give explanation thereof. A skirmish took place on the 14th inst. near Kansas City, Mo., resulting in the death of seven Rebels and the capture of six others with their ftorses, Ac. The rebel barracks were destroyed. 9be Union loss was one wounded. Another slurjptfsh, betwMn rebel cavalry and a battalion of the first Indian* cavalry, took place near Ironton, P ~ KE' Mo., in which two rebels wore killed, throe taken prisoners and the rest routed. Several horses and a quantity of arms were also captured. Several slight skirmishes have takon place near General Banks' command, the seat of contest being in Virginia. The result of each was in favor of the Union. THE NEWS. Our European files and letters by the Europa, dated to the 7th instant, reached this city from Boston yesterday, affording copious and very interesting details of the news telegraphed from Halifax. The speech of Mr. Bazlcy, M. P.?a large Manchester manufacturer?affords the most convincing proof that England is heartily desirous of emancipating herself completely from a dependence on the planters of the South for cotton by cultivating an extensive colonial supply. The spinners hope that by working "short time" they can get along with the stock on hand until importations from sourccs other than America actually commence. The threatened interruption of the importation of tobacco to France, caused by the federal blockade, presents a more serious aspect even than a dearth of cotton in England. Both England and France, however, are receding from the position of a war with the North either for cotton or tobacco. The progress of our civil contest was watched with unabated anxiety on the Continent, as will be seen from a perusal of our letters from Paris and Berlin. By the arrival of the overland express we have advices from San Francisco to the 7th inst., and interesting accounts from Oregon, Texas and the Plains. The news is very interesting. The returns of the California State election, which was held on the 4th inst., are incomplete, but the districts heard from establish the fact that tho republican ticket has been successful by a handsome plurality over the Union democrats and Breckinridge men. The Marshal of San Francisco had seized the ships Henry Brigham and Benefactor, owned in part by rebels. Emigrants from Texas who have reached tho southern part of California state that in the former Stato there is no security for life and property against either Indians or rebels; that tho Union men are disarmed and powerless; that the loyal citizcus reI quire only arms and assistance from the government to bring the rebels to a terrible retribution. Prom Oregon it is stated as a fact beyond dispute that tlio whole region embraced between the Cascades an 1 Rocky Monntalns is one vast gold field, only requiring developement to revolutionize the social and business relations of the entire Pacific coast. There is an immense emigration going on from the Western to the Pacific States this season, amounting to between twenty-five and thirty th'. usand persons. The overland express, with San Francisco news to the llthinst., has also arrived./The steamer which sailed on that day for Panama took $1,090,000 in treasure. The United States District Attorney has secured another condemnation of a vessel for fitting out with intention to proceed upon a slave voyage. The forfeiture of the bark Sarah was announced in the Herald some weeks ago. We have now to chronicle the condemnation of the Augusta, which Mr. Smith seized in July, and brought to trial in August. The Augusta was announced for a whaling ' voyage, but some suspicious circumstances led to an investigation, which resulted in stripping off the alleged disguise, notwithstanding that she was closely assimilated in her equipment to a fair trading vessel. An immense and enthusiastic mass meeting of our citizens was held last evening in the Cooper Institute to give renewed expression to their determination to uphold the Union, and at the same time to ratify the nominations made by the Convention of the Union People's party at Syracuso on the 10th and 11th inst. Among the speakers was the Hon. Daniel S. Dickinson. When he declared, in toneB of fiery eloquence, that, although he was politically opposed to the President and his administration, he would rather cut off his right arm than cast an obstacle in the way of their crushing the rebellion, the sentiment was hailed and endorsed by the immense audience with vociferous applause. His denunciations of the "miscreant peace party" were received in a similar manner, and when he said that the President should not only hare suspended the habeas corpus, but should also have suspended some of the apologists of the rebellion, there wa3 one universal shout of approbation. Rome attempts were made by the politicians to got the control of the meeting, but they failed signally. The democratic secession ticket of this State may now be considered fairly iu the field. The State Central Committee have put Marshall B. Chnmplain for Attorney General in place of Lyman Trcmaino, who declined on Union grounds, and William Williams for State Treasurer in place of Francis C. Brimck, who also declined for the reason that lie was too much of a Union man to swallow the platform of the secession democracy. All the candidates, with the exception of George P. Comstock, who is nominated for Judge of the Court of Appeals, have signed a letter of acceptance, in which they declare that they will contribute in future their earnest efforts in sustaining the President in the prosecution of the war at all hazards, and at any co.'t of blood and treasure. Taken as a whole, the letter is about of a piece with the democratic platform which was adopted at the recent Syracuse Convention. They talk like men that have a bad cause, and are conscious that they are going to be wofully beaten. Business still continues very dull down at the Custom House. Mr. George Brown, an entry clerk of nearly thirty years' standing, was dismissed yesterday on account of representations being made to the C- Hector that he was a secessionist. The charge is believed to be a malicious one, as Mr. Brown has always been taken for a strong Union man, and was acknowledged to bo one of the most efficient clerks in his department. The Port Surveyor is on the look out for several vessels lying at this port and said to be owned at the Sonth. The names and all particulars will be published as soon as the seisnres are effected. Two changes have been made in Jeff. Dnvis' bogus confederacy Cabinet since its formation on the Cth of March last. Robert M. T. Hunter, of Virginia, has been made Secretary of State in place of Robert Toombs, of Georgia: and Braxton Bragg, of Ixniisiann, has succeeded Lcroy P. Walker, of Alabama, as Secretary of War. The Cabinet as now formed is as follow#:? Secretary of Slate?Robert M. T. Ilanter, of Virginiu. Secretary of the Treasury?C. L. Memminger, of South Carolina. Secretary of War?Braxton Bngg.of Louisiana. Secretary of the A'avy?Stephen 11. Mallory, of Florida. PoitnwMrr General?John H. Reagan.of Ti xns. Attorney General?Judah P. Benjamin, of Louisiana. The number of sick and wounded soldiers in the hospitals at Washington and Georgetown ?s di* miuishing very fast. The following figures will show the number remaining on the 13th inst., the I date of the last report, and also the number that j were discharged cured during the previous seven ! days:? j N.Y.R'g'tt. Whole Xumker. | September 8 260 910 i September 13 ii-4 7?2 I IMschargc.lcured 29 lis ' The House of Representatives of Kentucky have ordered a committee of thirteen to be appointed by both Houses to prepare a bill to provida for the 1 calling of a National Convention to consider the misfortunes of the nation, with a view to their permanent settlement, based on constitutional provisions, mutually forgiving the wrongs of the past and assuring good fellowship in tlio future. Also a W YOltK HEKALD, SATI bill calling on both sections for an armistice of ninety days, to give time to consider these propositions and to provide for a joint commission. Parson Browulow, of the Knoxville (Tenn.) Whig, says he luis not changed liia sentiments in regard to the heresy of secession, but that he has come down a peg or two, because, being unarmod, he has not the courago to meet In open combat eleven States ftally uniformed and on a war footing. The Memphis Appeal thus notifies Kentuckians ef the purpose of the rebels regarding the State:? me south needs Her territory, and mast have it, though at the price of blood or conquest." James Whiteford, a wealthy meroliant of Baltimore, and John Bosley have been indicted by the Graud Jury of that city for treason. Whiteford id out on |10,000 bail, and Bosley is in prison, being unable to give security in $20,000. Contrabands In droves are fleeing from Missouri through Kansas to Nebraska. Whon they are known to be the property of Union men they are arrested and sent back; but when they escape from secessionists they are helped along on their journey. The tax levy was adopted by the Supervisors at their meeting yesterday and the Board adjourned to Tuesday next. The ground taken by Supervisor Blunt, iu opposition to the retrenchments proposed by Supervisors Ely and Purdy, was sustained by a vote of 8 to 4. After a prolonged and stormy debate, this test voto was taken on Supervisor Ely's motion to strike out so much of the appropriation for the Hackley street cleaning contract (130,000) as had not been earned during the suspension and litigations on that matter?a large sum being on this account withheld by the Comptroller. The levy was then read in detail, and a*sum of estimated deficiencies of throe per cent added, in conformity with the recommendations of the Comptroller. Although the head of the Street Department had recommended a large reduction as expodient in his section of the levy, the recommendation conld not be carried out without the co-operation of the Finance Department. The levy as now adopted Is as follows:? For State purposes $2,108,635 32 For county purposes and police 2,875,157 00 For support of city government...... 6.534.R22 04 Three percent fordeftciences 309,117 92 Total t $11,627,632 28 The tax levy has therefore been increased instead of diminished, only two of the Supervisors, Purdy and Ely, voting against its final adoption in this form. A. special meeting of the Board of Aldermen was held last evening at five o'clock. After the usual routine business had been gone through & letter was read from Mr. Gustavus W. Smith, tendering his resignation as Street Commissioner. Mr. Shepherd P. Knapp was nominated as his successor, and after a short discussion the nomination was ratified by a majority of the Board. In the Court of General Sessions yesterday Sarah Vandorpool, who was indicted for a felonious assault upon Emma Lewis, pleaded guilty to assault and battery, and was sent to the penitentiary for one year. John Hartnet, an old man, was tried for attempting to kill Martin Garraty, at 51 Mulberry street, on the 8th of Jnly. The parties had a scuffle, and while Garraty was on his face Hartnet struck him twice with an axe, which produced a wound upon the head. The defendant proved an excellent character, which no doubt modified the verdict, the jury convicting of an assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm. lie was remanded till Monday. Catherine Williams, who was charged with robbery in the first degree, in stealing a $20 gold piece from Jshn B. Machie, a returned volunteer, at a lodging house on the Five Points, on the 21st of August, was convictcd of "larceny from the person." This is an offence recently created by an act of the Legislature, for which, upon conviction, the sentence is the same as for grand larceny. Louis Minet was jointly indicted for the same offence, but he demanded a separate trial. The jury had not agreed upon a verdict at a late hour in the afternoon. The Grand Jury brought in a large batch of indictment*, among them a bill for murder in the first degree against James Gallagher for killing his wife. The accused pleaded not gnilty, and his trial was set down for next week. The will of Jacob Aims has been submitted to probate. His estate, though largo, is distributed exclusively among his relatives. The Agricultural Fair at Framingham, Mass., closed on the 10th inst. The crops of the State were represented as follows:?Grain good, corn extra good, grapes short, vegetables fine, apples scarce and poor, peaches and plums a failure. The French steam yacht Jerome Napoleon will depart this morning, via Long Island Sound. The steamer Wamsutta, of the New Bedford line, was yesterday morning towed to Mr. Webb's shin vard. for the uurnose of beirur turned int.n ? gunboat. Tho cotton market was quiot yesterday an 1 without animation, while prices wero somewhat nominal,at21 Xc. a 2"2r. for middling to strict middling uplands. Tho sales, in small lots, footed up about 200 a 300 balos. Flour was again firmer, and, with light receipts, prices again ad" vancod from 5c. to 10c. per bbl., chiefly for good to ship ping grade* of Stato and Western. Wheat was firmer especially for good shipping lots, and tho market w.ig activo and closed at an advance of 2c. to 3c. per bushel. Corn was firmer and from lc. to 2c. higher, especially for good shipping lots of Western mixed. Pork was 8rm, with sales of mess at $14 50 and at $14 76 for full weight bb'.s.; prime was at $0 76 a $10 50. Sugars wero again firm and active, with sales of about 3,000 hlids., 100 do. mo'ado, and 3,000 bags Tahia, on terms given in another colnmn. Coffee was firm, with sales of 2,000 bogs Rio on tho spot, and 2,800 do. per Cora, to arrive, on terms givon elsewhere. Freights woro sustained in rates, while engagements wero modcrato. Abolition Sedition Cboppino Opt at Sino Sing.?The New York Times gives a report of a "grand Union rally at Sing Sing," at which a Mr. Nelson H. Baker made a speech, declaring that ''if Lincoln opposed Fremont he would be opposed to Lincoln;" and it appears that this declaration so "electrified" the audience that ' it was some minutes before Mr. Baker could proceed." This threat of Mr. Baker is worthy of notice, from the fact tliat so many other abolitionists have declared or indicated the same purpose, as to menace an abolition conspiracy against the administration. Arc these things to go on with impunity ? We think not. Let our abolition disorganizes be warned in time, that in "giving aid and comfort to the enemy" they are guilty of treason. Cotton for Etropk.?The government is now organizing, and has, perhaps, partly despatched several military and naval expeditions against the South, employing in the aggregate about one hundred and fifty thousand men and threo thousand ships of war and transports. With this large force the Southern cotton crop will be seized at the different depots, when it is ready for market, and the government will have about 2.000,000 bales, by the first of January next, for export to England and France. There is no necessity, therefore, for European nations to quarrel with us about the cotton supply. We shall be ready to let them have all the cotou they want by the time thev require it. Tub Canai* CoMMrssioxERsmp.?Certain republican wirepullers are industriously circulating the fable that the Hon. Frederick A.' Tallmadge has signified his intention of withdrawing from the people's tickot in favor of Mr. Bruce. This rumor is wholly false. Mr. Tallmadge will not only run in November, but will be electcd by an ovewhelming majority. rRDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, If The Charges Against General Fremont. In another column we reprint a curious letter, puuiuuuu in mo lxcuxotuu irumigencer, tuuuuuig the career of General Fremont in Missouri. The communication is vouched for by the editor as proceeding from "a citizen of Missouri, well known to him for his intelligence and his proved loyalty to the government." The accusations in this letter are in the form of queries, but with an affirmative signification, and embodying the charges formally made to the President and his Cabinet against General Fremont in connection with his military command in the Department of the West. Those chargcs are: that Fremont, having at his disposal sixty thousand troops in and around St. Louis, lost time and labor in fortifying that city, which needed no defence, and at the same time kept this splendidly eqirfpped body of men idle about him, while brave Lyon was sacrificed for wont of a reinforcement of 5,000 men; and his noble little army, after great loss, compelled

to retreat from the field on which it was victorious. And this disaster was sustained while there were two regiments at Rolla, with no enemy to check or subdue, and while a fleet of boats left St. Louis for Cairo, one of them being only burlhened with the General and his suite, though it has been alleged in his excuse that there was no means of transporting troops to the aid of Gen. Lyon. Owing to the failure of Gen. Fremont to send him reinforcements, the grand object of his expedition to the Southwest?the possession of the Granby lead mines?was lost, and the rebels, who were greatly in want of lead, were permitted to secure as much of that mineral as will enable them to carry on the war for years. Further, it appears that thirty thousand Confederate troops held half of the State, and ravaged the great and fertile valloy of the Osage, while sixty thousand Union troops were unemployed at the very elbow of General Fremont, and only wanted his order to sweep on the foe swift as the eagle to his prey. "When General Fremont reached St. LouIb the rebels were whipped out of the State, and the railroads and rivers were in the control of the Union troops. How is all this changed now! It is further charged that General Fremont is inaccessible to the most important men in the State who seek interviews with him on official and military business, suoh as colonels of regiments, members of Congress and influential citizens, wno, aner waiting tor tnree nays, ana sometimes for a week, are compelled to leave without an audience. It appears that the General is surrounded by a band of officials who will permit only such men to approach him as they think proper. These charges, which resolve themselves either into incompetency or treachery, or some ambitious scheme apart from the service which Fremont undertook to render and is bound by every obligation to perform, are sufficient, if true, to authorize the removal of a better gene?ral. For our own part we regard Mr. Fremont as a brave, well meaning man. But if the charges are established they are fatal to the idea of his capacity for generalship, and the sooner he is removed the better, and a man of greater calibre placed in his important post. It is reported that Lexington has been captured by a superior force of rebels, while Union reinforcements were on the way which might have been Bent forward long before, as it was announced for several days that General Price was on his way to Lexington, and it was known that he had invested it two or three days before he made the assault Now, Lexington is on the bank of the Missouri, and is easily accessible from St. Louis, either by that river or by the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. Why reinforcements were not sent in time we leave General Fremont to explain, together with the other charges against hint. If these accusations should be proved to the satisfaction of the Cabinet, the fact would go far to explain Mr. Fremont's unauthorized and ill-advised proclamation. It is known that he is surrounded by a set of scamps and adventurers from California?a circumstance which in itself, certainly, does not argue much for his wisdom or strength of mind. Assuming that the charges are well founded, it is highly probable that they counselled him to issue his abolition proclamation in order to divert public attention by raising a new issue, and to gain popularity with tfll radical republicans at the expense of the government. Their object' is to make him the next President of the whole United States, if possible; or, if the war should fail to restore the Union, to make him President of the Northern half of it; and if that cannot be accomplished to make him President of the West, for we have the authority of Mr. Vallandigham for saying that if the South should finally be separated from the North tlie Wpst shall b? separated from the East; and it is intimated that the friends of Fremont hpve already carved out for him a Western military republic, similar to the design of Sam Houston in the South. But if they rely upon his proclamation they will find themselves wofully mistaken. The President has already taken the wind out of his sails by his short and plain letter, and has rallied around him the conservative elements of the South and the North, including the whole democracy and the moderate republicans. As for the abolitiouists, the best thing that could befall the President is to get rid of them forever. They are only a nuisance, which must be abated, and a dead weight like a millstone round the neck of the Union cause, dragging it down to perdition. If Mr. Fremont should not be fully exonerated from the charges against him let him go by the board. No element of distraction can be tolerated. The cause must have unity, and cannot afTord to be made subservient to personal interests. Insubordination must be crushed at all hazards, and the simnle obioct of the war must be held steadily in view by all who are engaged in it?to restore the Union as it existed before hostilities began. That is the only war that can hare a prosperous issue. Squirming of Out Abolitionists.?The penny Sun, of New York, now in the hands of an abolition clique, denounces the President's disapproval of General Fremont's emancipation proclamation as disclosing "the moral inconsistency and weakness of the President in a stronger light than has been supposed or represented." This abolition befogged Sun, however, passed its meridian long ago, and, from present appearances, it will soon set ander a total eclipse. If they feel called upon to denounce Mr. Lincoln to-day as guilty of "moral inconsistency and weakness," and as a "temporizing President" "terrified into an amazing committal" to the enemies of the Union, it is possible that to-morrow these abolition disorganizes of the Sun may boldly take the high road to Fort Lafayette. [ 0 161. Thl jlhll Anlllu of the Bout h?1Their Oipftatton, Oilcan, Bqvlpmcat, dfe. We laid before our readers yesterday what we h consider a very instructive and valuable compilation of the rebel armies of the South, their divisions and sub-divisions, their officers, equip- ( mont and distribution, from Manassas to Mis- gn souri and Arkansas, and from Norfolk to Texas. Wl This schedule is the result of our careftil sav- th< ings for many weeks of numerous items of in- M formation from Southern official and other well informed sources, reaching us from time to time through the lines of that rigid embargo which am exists between the two sections of the Union- lyi We are sure that these statistics have very mueh interested, edified and astonished the general jJ reader, and we are inclined to think that they k, will be useful to our government, and some- , what surprising to our Southern newspaper oo- by temporaries, as an example of pereevering induBtry. In looking over this extensive army catalogue ^ of two hundred and ninety thousand rebels in 001 active service, the loyal Union man of the 18 north, who is aware of the hundreds of millions BU of monoy and immense manufacturing labors which have been required to arm and equip the th< forces of tho Union in the field, will be em- th barrassed to account for these multitudinous Hi armies of the South, raised by a spurious co1 government, without money or credit, and ue! from a combination of States hitherto al ^ most wholly dependent upon the North and jn< upon foreign nations for all their manufac- co tured articles, from their hats to their Bhoes, Af and from their carriages and harness to the very hoes with which they cultivate their cotton. jJJJ How are we to account for these great Southern th armies, with all these indispensable external JjJ supplies cut off by the existing blockade by land and sea? To answer as briefly as we can, he we reply that for many months, and, indeed, *' for some years before the outbreak of this re fr> bellion, the conspirators had arranged not only jjj the bagging an invaluable list of arsenals, mints' rn navy yards, forts, cannon, small arms, ammu ^ nition and materials of war of all kinds, but 111 no they had instructed tho people of the South to pc lay in an extraordinary stock of goods of all jj| descriptions, and to the full extent of Southern t* cash and credit in the North. Upon these sup- ?r plies, eked out by the scanty factories, family fc InAltlfl and villami vrnplraKAna ftf ttin tnd !!! States, this rebellion has been armed and ^ equipped for its suicidal struggle for a Southern confederacy. Thus we find that while this Southern rebel- p' lion has fortified and armed itself from its o( seizures of United States property and money gj its materials of equipment have been largely de! o' rived from extraordinary purchases of Northern ej goods. Of course the revolted States, devoted p* almost exclusively to agriculture, have found no al serious difficulty in feeding their armies, except ^ in the important item of transportation. In st this item, however, they have been considerably * embarrassed, for his deficiency in wagons has ^ doubtless had as much to do in holding Beaure- hi gard at Manassas as the strong Union fortified camps of the Potomac. Bat in the equally im- w portant item of clothing the rebels will soon be [? falling short. In fact, if they fail to make a " lodgment in Washington or Maryland, and fail g, to get our blockade broken up before Decern- Jjj ber, it is altogether probable that these nume- bi rous Southern armies will rapidly fall to pieces for lack of clothing. Hence, let us hope that p? the backbone of this rebellion will even yet be Pj broken before the regular meeting of Congress. ^ We need not be in any hurry for a great deci- pi sive battle, when it is thus apparent that by delay and skilful Bide operations we can win the day without one. We gain by delay, and in proportion to our gain is the enemy's loss. If they must fight or fall back from Washington, we can wait where we are, u^ibn pur chosen ground, until they make their electiofli yi There is afldther remarkable feature in tt this rebellion upon which we may submit b< A wnnl rtr turn Tlio mnnawiniv nWrtfo r% f hi ?

And so the Rhetts, the Yanceys, the Jjj Slidells, the Masons, the Spratts, the Browns, fu the Greens, the Gwins, the Cobbs, the Thompsons, and Floyds, and Wises, and Pryors, and tt all that galaxy of Southern leaders and fire- h< eaters involved in the shaping of the programme of this rebellion, from the secession experiment tl about California, of 1851, down to the bombard- jJJ ment of Fort Sumter, are now holding back is scats in the Southern temple, when they all ex- *c peetcd to be among the chief priests and of scribes. Jeff. Davis, to be sure, is a Provisional President; but even his glory is eclipsed by that of cl< Beauregard, who was but the other day an ob- 8t< scuro subordinate officer in the United States ** ju, army. Now, he and oi?er army officers, late of t0 a secondary rank, lord it over the prostrate m politicians who foundod this experimental Southern Utopia. They are overshadowed and manacled by a military despotism. The government of the United States had no offices to give them large enough for their self-conceit They would have an independent Southern confederacy?they would be tbe masters of it?and now behold their humiliation. Wise and Floyd are reduced to more bush fighters; Slidell and Mason, and Cobb and Thompson are among the * outsiders; Yancey is in exile, and poor Pryor is l the subordinate of some military master among 1 the swamps of Norfolk. Let us hope that before long the whole batch < of civilians and warriore, great and small, trai- ^ tors and dupes, committed to this great rebel- wi lion, will be subject to the judgment of the ^ good government they have so foolishly under- pli taken to destroy. So mote it bel After thk War.?At the conclusion of this w* war we shall have in the field over three hundred thousand veteran soldiers; and our navy will comprise over five hundred ships of war, )a, and we shall have a naval brigade of about fifty t<* thousand men. Let European governments be in careful, then, how they treat us during the con- str tinuance of this war, for when we have settled our domestic troubles the slightest word of in- n? suit or provocation may let loose upon Canada *,?, and Cuba this terrible force, and sweep the last P" vestige of monarchical rule from this continent. 001 Abolitionism at thk North.?The abolilion. ists at tho North could never number more than nl] five hundred thousand voters out of an aggregate vote of three and a half millions. Mea~ *JJ] sures are now being taken to weed out the abo" JJj lition element of all parties from the conserva" gf tive, and when that result is accomplished let *' tho abolitionists expect that punishment which 53 their enormities have long merited. t! MOVEMENTS OF PRINCE NAPOLEON. * la Departure Delayed Until To-^ay?H? *ill Vl?lt? tit* Nary Yard and Oastoaa Howe - Serenade In tit* Evening; Che visit of bla Imperial Highness the Prinoe Jenmm .polooo to this country aeems to be fraught vttha sat deal of pleasure, and be appears determined to see latcver it to be seen. 11m programme, aa arranged for 3 movements of the imperial party, was not carried o.it originally Intended, and the expected departure foe" Bton was postponed until to-day. ty eight o'clock yesterday morning the imperial I >7 uau oirwMiy paruuiun or a Dounttful breukfuit, 1 half an boor later were on tho way to the yacht, ng off tbe Battery, where every thing was arranged to jelve them. Tbe reason of the postponement waa that mmodoro Brooeo, the commander of the Wary Yard, d extended an Invitation to the Prinoe and anil* to pay <isit to that institution, which was accepted. & little after twelve o'olock, noon, the Prinoe, attended Capt. Du Buisson, commander of the imperial yacht, d one of his officers, embarked on the beauti. little propeller attached to tbe veaael tender, and steamed around the Bat. y in nuOeetlo style. The crew of this little craft Mists of tbe engineer, coxswain and a sailor. The boat covered by an awning, stretching as far as the smokekck, and the French tricolor floated gayly from the staff the stern. As the little steamer approached the Navf ird, a prince's salute of twenty-one guns was fired from 9 receiving ship North Carolina, and at that moment a French flag was run up on the main. Ills Imperial ghness landed on the dock, almost opposite tho reiving ship, where he was rocolved by Commodore SamIL. Breese and Captains Moade and Almy. rhe Commodore greeted the Prlnco In French, which a old veteran speaks with fluency. Tbe usual oompliints having beeu paid the illustrious visiters were carted to the storehouse, the bakery and tho shipyard*, ter this Commodore Breese invited his guests te his sidence, where a luxurious collation was partaken at. le band attached to the North Carolina was stationed taide of the Commodore's bouse, and discoursed several ul-stirring airs while tho distinguished visiters regaled "insolvTd inside. After a stay of about flftoen minutes e l'rinoe was again taken charge of by his entertainers d cscorted around to the Arsenal and olhor places. At thft vtril ftvflrvihlnff wm hnctlo ftTolinmaii* le arrival of the imperial lmrty happening in the dinner >ur, tho hundreds of mechanics employed in the yard . re anxious to have a view of the Prince, and accord^ ply returned from their dinnor sooner than usual. In nnt of tho Marine Barracks two companies of marines, command of Major Brevoort, wore drawn up in le to receive his Highness, while opposite them, om the gate to tho Lyceum, tho workmen stationed lomsclves in a row, respectfully awaiting the arrival of e princely cortego. It was supposed that the Prinoo id his suite would arrive In carriages and enter at the ain gate. The workmen, howevor, were sadly disapdnted, as the visiters did not comn that way, and bavg first made the tour of the buildings adjacent to the >ck, beforo coming to the Commodore's house, and the >11 having tolled ono o'clock, the men wero oompellod to turn to their labor without having had the satisfaction boholding a real Prince. After the most noticcabto atures of the yard were thoroughly inspected, his Imirial Highness and escort returned to their little vessel, *>n4which they ro-embarked to come to New York. On .0 dock M^jor Brevoort had his battalion drawn up. id as the princely party passed the marines presentee tor, tho baml playing a march. Prince Napoleon ex ossed himself highly pleased with what he saw, and im;>llmoutod Commodore Breese on the complete and -actical arrangements of hid department. From the Navy Yard tho Prince sailed to the pior foot ' Wall street, whore bo and his escort disembarked and -ocecded to tne Custom House, by previous invitation of >llector Barney, whore they arrived shortly after tw? clock. Hiram Barnoy, Ksq., received his flhperlal isitcrs and conducted thorn through all the department*, Lplaining as ho went along tho uses to which thoy am it, and the different branches of business transited In each room. The Prince walked gravely W| a few paces behind his conductor, evi ntly noticing all the details of the building ith a curious and critical eye, and occasionally opping to question Mr. Btirnoy when anything particular tractod his notice. In the gallery overlooking the main ill of tho building he made a short stay, and was a?isntly much amusod and interested with tho busy scene How. No one in the building know of his presence until 3 appeared among them, and with the exception of a irious look from all witnin the building as he pasaed ong, no unduo degree of curiosity was manifested, nor as his Imperial Highness annoyed b* any one pressing rward to obtain a nearer view. The imperial visiter ft the building after a stay of about half an hour, and iturnod to the yacht in the harbor. At hiir.nut ten n'r.lor.k P. M. the Imnerlal familv had A. and compliment paid them, by a sorunade, conducted irSlgnor Muzio. The intent of the same having k?ea ade known to hi* imperial highneae, the fine yacht waa illiantly illuminated early in the evening. At about ne o'clock rockets were aent up, and from the main and I blue lights were kopt burning for a considerable >rlod. The serenading party, led by Signer Muxio, left from er No. 1 North rlvor about half-past ten o'clock, oa a earn boat, and oncoming along side of the yacht cotnenoed tho performance, of which tho following la Mm ogramme:? 1.

The night selectod for tho serenade could not have sen wished to be better. Tho full moon shining out in ir full radiance, and the waters of the Hudson rolling ilmly, numerous lights flashing about the Imperial icht?all this combined mode the scene Very intoreetg. Tho gentle breeze from due south?or rather a little mthwefit?wafted the melodies shoroward, thus aflurdg numerous persons gathered on the plors an opportuity of enjoying the princely serenade. Tho music was, as a matter of course, of the very beat, i fact it could not bo otherwise when Signor Muzio indies tho baton and has the selection of his perrrners. Numerous parties of ladle? and gentlemen igaged rowboats on the Battery and the piers of the orth river to listen to tho sweet strain of the band, ius ombraciug the opportunity of spending a pleasant >ur on the water on a moonlight night. At twelve o'clock the sorenade was not yet finished, id undoubtedly the serenading party was invited aboard le yacht. Whether tho baud porformcd any mbre after i? programme was finished wo have no means of knowg, us the writer of this left at that .hour. From the uparations going on aboard the yacht during the day, it evident that his Imporial Htghnes.s was greatly pleased ith the compliment, and when he arrives again at hia >mo In la belle France, he will not havo an opportunity saying that Americans aro_not a hospitable poople, or ideretand honoring a noble'and distinguished stranger.
