A portion of Genera'. Sumacr's division drove a large body of them from the Warrenton Junction on Friday. A reconnoissance made beyond the railroad junction at Ibis point was poshed as far as the Rappahannock river, the enemy'a cavalry retreating before them, and burning the bridge over the river in their flight. Our troopa shelled them at the bridge, but did not prevent them from destroying it. Much more damage could have been done to the euemy while conveying their sink and wounded across the river, but humanity forbade it. * Our troops occupied Shipping 'Point OB frk&y, and found that all th? rebels had left it some days PCfVtOO#.. V . Everything at Fortrfea Monro* remains quiet. The anxiety as to the future movements of the Merrimac naturally remain* unabated. The rebels bare been very busy lor the past two or three days arith their tugboats betwoen Craney Island and Pig Point, the supposition being that they are treugtheoing their fortifications and increasing their force in that vicinity. Wo publish to-day a pretty full list, as far as ascertained, of the kiMed andj wounded at the battle of Winchester. The totaloss, including j >he missing, is pat down at 718; bnt aa many of ftc- regiments engaged pursued the enemy to fttras- i lArg. it is impossible just now to obtain an acsn- [ 'ate account of the killed in the absence of the rottsSeri rolls, (lea. Shields has written an informal iccnunt of the battle to a friend in Washington, w(nc.li we give in another column, shewing the >. mode by which Jackson's forces were drawn into , the trap, together with some further inoidents of ( Jic battle and the acenes on the Held after the i action. I The news from the Mississippi is not very ira oortant. Several of the rebel gunboats aad transjortH came np towards New Madrid on Wednesday, * within range of our batteries at Biddle'a Point and >pened fire, bat they were forced to retarn after a brief engagement. It is reported that the enemy ' iave constructed batteries on the opposite sidfe of .he river to prevent General Pope from crossing , tnd taking them in the rear. The attack by oar ! gunboats was renewed on Friday with greater I rigor than for some time past. The enemy ap i oeared to have mounted gnns of longer range that 1 those hitherto in nse. MISCELLANEOUS MEWS. In the State Senate at Albany yesterday, the hills to enable Westchester county to acquire and* for the construction of Harlem bridge, and 'mending the law of 1860 relative to the police :ourts of this city, were passed. The bills author sing the Excise Board Clerks to take affidavits, and amending ths law relative to taking testimony of witnesses out of the State, as well as others of minor importance, received favorable report*. A bill to encourage investments in small sums in State stocks?the same that was brought forward 'n the Assembly the previous day?was Introduced. Concurrent resolutions were introduced in favor of a commission of five, to be appointed by the Governor and Senate, to hear ancb casea pending in the Court of Appeals as msy be referred to them by that Court. The resolution approving the President's late special Message was made the special order for Wednesday evening next. In the Assembly,, the bills amending the incorporation act of the Society for the Relief of Widows and Small Children, in relatioo to life insurance companies' dividends, to facilitate the construction of the Adirondack Railroad, and incorporating the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions, were pasted. Third readings were ordered on the bills to prohibit suspension bridges at ferry landings, and to increase the fees for hawkers and peddler* licenses. The bill to prevent the building of private wharves jn this port was defeated. The Metropolitan Health bill was again considered. After a long debate, various amendments being proposed and rejected, progress wis reported, and the bill referred to a select committee of nine, to report complete. The Bpeaker announced the select oommiuee on the Assessment !*# . In the Court of General Sessions yesterday, fudge McConn rendered a decision adverse to the motion of counsel for Dr. Chas. Cobel, for arrest of {udgment,he having been convicted of a misdemeanor in causing the death of an infant whils producing an abortion. Mr. Bl&ukman moved for a mitigation of tha sentence, which waa also denied. Pie City Judge said that the defendant had been tried before for similar offences, but escaped punishment. and that the penalty he was about to Inflict was justly deserved. The sentence was one sear's imprisonment in the penitentisry. William Roberts, who was convicted of an assault with In (eat to do bodily harm upon Thos. Wilson, in Fulton Market, waa fined fifty dollars. Honeywell Vincent, who was convicted of larceuy over a year ago, and sentenced to the State prison, w as die charged. His eonusel obtained a uew trial, but owing to the impossibility of procuring the attendance of necessary witnesses for the prosecution, the Assistant District Attorney acceded to the iuotiou for his discharge. The st ok market waa dull at tne opeuing and at iue tlrst board yesterday, and prices declined 't a |>er cent. At tha second boar l there was a better demsud, and Ike morning's dec hue was partially recovered. Kxchauge and gold were 5oth better, closing firm. Money without change.

"King Cotton" Mtditallng Suicide?Debate in the Hrbel Congreu. Kiug Cotton" is in a bud way. Be league tod by our encircling fleets and armies, powerless to arrest their advances into his dominions, and despairing of foreign intervention, he has turned his thoughts upon suicide. Read tho report of the interesting debate in tho rebol Congress which we publish to-day. The rebel House of Representatives nad passed a resolution advising the planters in the confederacy of Jefl. Davis to abstain from planting cotton and tobacco this year, and to devote themselves exclusively to the production of grain and provisions; and. this resolution coming up in the rebel Senate, Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, proposed to substitute a bill peremptorily curtailing the cotton crop of 1802. The debate will explain what followed. In the end, the resolution, including Mr. Brown's proposition, was rejected, eight to elevon, from which we may conclude that the cottou planters of our rebellious States will be left to decide for themselves the extent of their cotton nlantincr for the nresent rear. We presume, however. (bat, witb the las* year's crop still upon their hands, and with the so-called Confederate States shorn by our advancing armies of the grain and provision producing districts of Kentucky, Missouri. Virginia and Tennessee, the planters In the cotton States are now disposed to devote, the bulk of their lands for this *ca?on to Indian corn, Irish and sweet potatoes, peas, beane, &c>, (or the subsistence of their armies and peo- . pie. Heretofore, from the border slave States aforesaid, and from the greatstorehouses of the Northwest, our cotton States have been almost exclusively supplied with their corn meal, flour, pork, beef, mutton and whiskey; but now, with our armies advancing in Virginia and North Carolina, and from Tennessee against (he rebel frontier defences of Alabama and Mississippi, the cotton States must produce their own provisions for the present year, or, should this war hold on so long, they will by September next be reduced to the straits of a famine. The season tor cotton planting is now at hand, and in a few weeks it will be over, when, in default of a crushing rebel de ic?? xu vuo uiict vaif wv ouan aiusi ^rvvawijr learn that not one-fourth of our average South' ern cotton crop ha* been planted. A great Union victory, meantime, in the Mississippi Valley, or in Virginia, resulting in the flight of the rebel government from Richmond, may change the minds of the cotton planters, with the conviction that farther resistance to the arms of the Union is rain, and that, if they are to ieatroy their last year's crop to save it from 'the Yankees," they may as well have a full crop of cotton for the inviting markets of tho world next fall as anything else, especially as. with the Southern advances of our troops, the granaries of the Northwest will again be opened to the remotest corners of the South. Upon this important question of planting a full >r a small crop of cotton this season, the rebel Senator Barawell, of Soulh Carolina, contends in the debate before us that the Soath must sustain its cotton culture, that "all our interests appeal to us never to give it up. We must raise it. bold it. and fight for it. We must let the world know that we have it, and that we will sell it cheap, and that wo will tight to keep it from oar enemy and proteet it." Mr. Hunter, of Virginia, taking the eame view, said:?"The policy which diminishes the supply of cotton will bold out no inducements to England to break up the blockade;" but Mr. Seuunes, of Louisiana, bad given up all hope of English intervention, and be was therefore in favor of warning the boutnern ponpw -w |>rv|raru tur Hie vvatinuance of a lengthy war, and that produce must be raised for our subsistence." The prevailing idea, however, in the "Confederate" Senate seems to be that the South must continue the cotton culture, for fear that England may remove the throne of "King Cotton" to her own dominions. The question is a grand and comprehensive one, and is now in process of solution by our Southern cotton planters themselves. By the 1st of May the problem will be settled, and, from present appearances, it will be settled against the monopoly of the cotton culture in the South, by a crop there so short as to compel the expansion of this culture to a very great extent in all other available parts of the world. Meantime,it must be remembered that the rebel Congress at Richmond baa enjoined the destruction of the crop of last year, in every case where it cannot be saved by removal irom ?ne grasp 01 our steadily encroaching armies; and the same decree has gone forth concerning tobaeeo, rice and sugar. These staples are to be consumed, if they cannot otherwise be rescued from "the armed hordes of the Lincoln government;" so j that, in point of fact, the planters of the South have at this moment before them the momentous question whether the hopeless cause of this rebellion, with ail its other drawbacks, extortions and dangers, is or is not worth the sacrifice of two crops of cotton, and the loss of the monopoly of this lucrative culture for all time to come, fn this view of the subject, we cannot avoid NEW YORK HERALD, S the conclusion that, if within the next week or two Jeff'. Davis aud his robel government are ignoiuiuiously expelled from Uicbinond, the cotton planters of the South, upon this single question of saving or sacrificing by next November two crops of cotton, equal to three or four huudred millions of dollars, will resolve to save it by submission to the Union. Thus, let us hojm, ' King Cotton'' will be saved from suicide, and the South from Bcenes of wicked "vandalism utterly ruinous to the planters, their agricultural interests, and thoir vital institution of slavery. The London Times has denounced our sinking of a few old hulks in the main channel to Charleston harbor, to aid us in our blockade, as an "outrage against civilization, humanity and the common rights of mnnkiud." What terms of denunciation, then, will be sufficient to express the outrage agaiast civilization and humanity of this war policy of our Southern rebel rulers, of burning the stores on hand of the cotton, rice, tobacco and sugar of their people, and of suspending the cultivation of cotton, in order to be avenged against their rightful government and against the persisteut neutrality of foreign nations in this war.'^ These desperate extremities of vandalism botray the reckless ferocity of the rebel leaders. But let thorn be driven from Richmond, and the people of the cotton States will have the veil which still blinds them removed from their eyes, and they will see clearly enough to choose between the road to ruin and the way of safety. We trust that during this coming month of April the South, the Union, the American people, and the civilized world, will be relieved of the atrocities of the savage incendiaries who control the rebel government at Richmond, and the lives, the labor and the substance of tho suffering people of our revolted States. What is to be Done with tue Sor.DrEis and the NeOIIOES at the JS.vd ok t1ik W.1r?? Now that the war will very soon be brought to an end. and there will be some GOtbOOO troops in the South, and the negroes idle on the plantations of their absentee masters, or running about the country as vagrants, the question arises, What is to be done with both? The best thing to be done with the soldiers is to induce them to remain at the South, by dividing among them the estates of the planters who have run away, and also tho slaves, so that these nogrocs may be sot to work on the same plantations in the cultivation of cotton. The Northern troops would be the very life of the Union sentiment in the South, and a military government ought to be established in tiie beginning, after the manner of that in Tennessee, in order that tho States may be reorganized under proper authority and law, and obedience to the federal government fully established. With a view to this end, the troops should take good care not to allow the minds of tho slaves to be tampered with, or any foolish notions about equality inculcated. On tho contrary, they ought to drive the missionaries out of their lines at the point of the bayonet, as dangerous incendiaries. This is the way to restore the Union, to maintain order, and td preserve to the country the vast wealth which, it has hitherto monopolized by the culture of cotton. Auk the Nkukoes in Chain Gangs at Pokc Royal??We observe it is staled in a New York journal, "on authority," that ihe negroes at Port Uovrtl are chained together in gangs, in order to compel thein to work, as their minds were so perverted by the false teachings of fanatical missionaries that they imagined tbey would have to work no wore, and that in future the white men would work for them and spoon-feed them besides. This only proves what wediave often said? that the negro will only work on compulsion. If the legal owners of these lazy blacks had chained them in the manner described there would be a lornl outcry agaiust their inhumanity. We do not believe there are any examples of the kind ?an evidence that the Southern planter knows better how to manage the negro, and can make him work with less cruelty, than Northern men. who do not understand his nature and are less kindly to him. If the statement be true, nothing can more clearly demonstrate the impossibility of giving freedom to the negroes of the South without such coercive laws as will force them to work. The negro's idea of freedom and of Puradiae is to have nothintr to do. A New Atlantic Telegraph Cable.?Without doubt in the course of time the Old World and the New will be linked together by tele, graphic communication, and, if we may rely upon recent information from London, it will not be long before another attempt is made to lay a new cable between Ireland and Newfoundland. It in certain that the Britiah government are desirous of aiding and witnessing the consummation of the enterprise; and the circumstance of Lord Falmerston having appointed an interview with Mr. Field and other gentlemen interested for taking the subject into consideration goes far to show that they are disposed to co-operate with the United States in the undertaking. Indeed, those referred to say that the prospect of a satisfactory termination of negotiations with the government in regard to raising the necessary capital to secure the proposed new cable is very encouraging. We need not refer to the great advantages of accomplishing the work which an unlucky accideut undid for ua in 18o7; and, as its perfect practicability has been sufficiently demonstrated, we look forward hopefully to the result of a second attempt to unite the two hemispheres by s speaking wire. Dcst amd Discomfort?For the past two days tha streets have been the sporting ground of blinding clouds of dust, which in their erratic ca reer havo penetrated into all our offices, stores snd babitatious, giving a sandy coat to provisions in corner groceries, whitening our black surtouts, Ailing our drawing rooms, and otherwise making free with everything not hermetically sealed against it, as well as finding its way In considerable quantities to onr lungs, as if the peck of dirt commonly said to be swallowed during a lifetime had to be taken in a day. Now, considering that we pay a very considerable sum for street cleaning and watering, we are unable to see why the streets are neither cleaned nor watered. Perhaps Mr. Il&okley, the contractor for street cleaning, and the Corporation will turn their attention to this matter. Wc shall doubtless have much of the same gusty, dusty weather that we are now tasting from this time forward, and it is therefore the duty of the Corporation to commence watering the streets without delay, as well as to insist upon Mr. Hackley acting according to the strict letter of his contract, which hitherto ho has faded in doing UN DAY, MARCH 30, 18(52. Th?- True O*??or?hlp of the PrM?. By the constitution of the United States the press is free to publish whet it pleases. sod is only responsible for its violation of the lew of the land efter publication. In this country the press must be free. But every honorable, patriotic man who owns s public joarnal will, of his own accord, abstain from publishing anything that can give aid to the enemy . and, were not so many of the papers controlled by agitators and low demagogues, there would be no necessity for a censorship which suspends the constitution and establishes most dangerous precedents in a free country. Now. there is a better remedy than censorship for correcting the evil, and Congress ought to take a lesson from England and France. In England for the last thirty*yearsthere has been more of constitutional liberty than there ever was before, and the reason is that the press, in consequence of the high tax upon newspapers, fell into the hands of meu of intelligence and men of capital, men who had a stake in tho community, and would do nothing to endanger the general welfare or kindle the fires of revolution. Oflute the high tax has bqpn removed, and cheap papers of a revolutionary character have sprung up like mushrooms, and the once respectable press contaminated now imitates them, in consequence of the public taste having become vitiated and depraved. The result is that England is going rapidly down the hill, and will

soon be at the bottom. Jn France the cheap press at the time of the Kevolution, wielded by desperate demagogues like Marat, caused those frightful excesses which made the angels weep. In the last days of the reign of Louis Philippe it was the cheap press that revolutionised Paris and dethroned that monarch. Louis Napoleon, fearing the same result in regard to himself, put a bridle in the mouth of the press and destroyed its freedom. It is a well ascertained truth of history that in France a free cheap press cannot exist without producing revolution. Now the true remedy which Napoleon ought to have applied was that which was so long adopted in England, but is now unfortuuately abandoned?taxation. And that is the remedy for the licentiousness of the press in the United States. It ought to be taxed like whiskey or any other luxury. The press is a great luxury. A high tax on whiskey will have the effect of diminishing drunkenness, as its tendency will be to limit the use of the article to educated and intelligent men, who are not so likely to abuse it. Again, whiskey will be of a better quality, and will not do so much injury as it does now. Let the press in the same way be taxed, and such a price put on newspapers us will cause tlieiu to be read chiefly by intellectual men. The result will be that a better article must bo produced ; else it will not sell; and, consequently, the demoralizing, poisonous sheet will be driven out of the market. Proprietors of public journals, too. would be men of capital, men who would have something to lose by civil convulsion or by public cormptien. and whose interest, therefore, would coiuetdo with their duty in advocating the right and denouncing the wrong. The cheap and nasty demagogic papers which now exist have done much to bring the country into its present deplorable condition. The true remedy for the evil, the true censorship, is a high lax upon public journals. Nothing will so tend to the purification of pub I lie mora!*. "Republics/' aays Montesquieu, "are founded on virtue." Lei tlial be sapped by pernicious lour priced newspapers, and democratic institutions must perish and give place to despotism. On the other* hand, journals of high price and character, conducted by well informed men of intellectual calibre, and men whose circumstances place them above the reach of corruption and the influence of the <vi)<?\0e, are well calculated to preserve public virtue and save a republic from that degeneracy of morals which is the sure precursor of ita fall. Wur tbk Okoinh or thk Raujcus Attic* tiik Abut.?The Evening Post and other radical journals of this city ftr-t couiruenced their attacks on the army and its officers by adverse military criticisms. They now charge the offi **o ?ml men with limnir traitor-4. The rinson of this hostility is that two-third*, and even three-fourths,of the army are Northern democrats. and not more than one-fourth republicans. The radical revolutionary journals, finding the army and its officers intractable, assail them as having gone into the army for the purpose of preventing the auccest of the war, by which is meant the abolition of slavery in every State. These rabid organs of revolution are maddened just in proportion as they sec the bloody vision of negro insurrection which they conjured up fading away from their sight like a sick man's dream. The officers and the rank and tile of the army know too well the value of our democratic institutions to lend themselves to their overthrow, and they have too keen an appreciation of the negro's character to disturb the relations which exist between him and the white man of the South. Their purpose is to fight the battles of the Union, and to restore it, with negro slavery and all?an Idea perfectly awful to those who hold that "the constitution is a covenant with death and an agreement with bell." Hence, in their blind rage, they open a fire in the rear of the army as it marches on to victory. The Virtvocs Police.?The police are just now Influenced by one of those sudden revivals of virtue to which they are occasionally subject, and accordingly they have commenced a crusade against all the Sunday liquor sellers, pickpockets and gamblers they can flud. The proverb, "Give a dog a bad name and hang him,'' derives additional force from the conduct of these well paid guardians of the public safety; for, knowing a man to have been once a thief, they arrest him in the most despotic manner, and contrary to all law. Thus, for instance, on Thursday a couple of them arretted three fashionably dressed men in Wall street, opposite the American Bank, we are told, merely because they suppoeed they were there to pick the pockots of those who came out of the bank; and it was not till writs of habeas corpus had been obtained by their counsel that they were brought bofore Recorder Hoffman and discharged. We hare always remarked that these periodical revivals of virtuous indignation on the part of the police are followed by a worse instead of a better state of things; that all the gambling houses and dons of infamy do n more flourishing business than before, and that the police themselvos are then hail fellow well met with the victims of their previous persecution. It looks as if the polite had ?ome little object of their own to <H?rro ia all Ibis liinplajr of ?xtra ro fined virtue. The Broadway it umioao.?If we are to fcav< a Broadway Railroad, why not have a commis aion of three resj?oetable citizens appointed to construct and manage it, and let the profits ac orue to the city? What possible right have the impudent vagabonds whose names are inserted in the bill before the I legislature to claim a franchise worth five or six millions of dollars to this tax-ridden city?
