Ackley to desert from one State foi the purpose ol being enlisted in another. They were held in custody in Boston until the arrival of Constable lluse from this city when they were delivered to him nud brought here Saturday uight. Mr. lluse also brought O’Hagan and Ackley as witnesses and all the parties were lodged in our jail. Monday, Messrs. E. <fc F. Fox, counsel for Main, obtained from Judge Ware a writ of habeas corpus, directiog Main to be brought before him, and summoning the others as witnesses. The writ was served upon the deputy jailor the jailor being absent. It was returnable at 11 o’clock Tuesday. At that hour it was found that the Provost Marshal lor this District had taken the parties from the jail aud into his own custody. Their Counsel endeavored to find them but could not. Iu the afternoon Main was allowed to see his counsel. He iuformed them that he had been refused the privelege of sending for them. It was then learned that they were to be taken to Augusta last evening. It is said that Ackley has once before en deavored to enlist but was rejected by the ■urgeon. U'Hagau claims to he an alien who has been but a short time in this Elate, and has never enlisted. , All the men were taken to Augusta in the train last evening. __» Capt. Joseph E. Walker, of Co.

The Martha Wash ington Society of this city have recently for warded two Htses au'9 one barrel ol articles to Miss M. G. Pearson, General Hospital’ Annapolis, for the sick aud wounded soldiers. This excellent society has contributed largely in this and other ways to the cause since the war commenced, and wilt continue the good work to the end. They meet every week to make garments for our brave boys in the Held ‘imd hospitals. We commend this society to the benevolence of the public. They need more funds to help them in their noble and patriotic labors. Third Parish.—An informal meeting was held at the Vestry of the Third Parish on Monday evening, to ascertain the feelings of the members in relation to extending to Kev. Mr. Walton, of Albany, an iuvilalion to the vacant pastorate. Almost every one present —and there was a very respectable number— expressed a very favorable opinion of Mr. Walton.

It is rumored that parties have purchased the McCobb property, cor ner of Free and Oak streets, for the purpose of erecting an Opera bouse thereon.

A Rtbsl Attack Handsomely Repulsed. OEX. LEE FALLIXG BACK. LARGE CAPTURES OF PRISONERS. GEN. SHERIDAN AT WORK AGAIN. Washington, May 24—10.30 P. M. To Maj, Gen. DU:—A dispatch from Gen. Grant, dated at It o'clock last night, states that the army moved from its position to the Auua, followed closely by Lee’s army. The Gth aud (lib corps marched by way of Harris’ store to Jericho Ford, aud the 5th succeeded in etl'ectiug a crossing aud getting a position without much opposition. Shortly after, how ever, they were violently attacked and hand somely repulsed the assault without much trouble to us. We captured some prisoners. Everything looks exceedingly favorable to us. Another dispatch, giving in detail the move ments of our corps, aud speaking of the rebel assault on Warren’s position, says he was at tacked with great vehemence. I have never heard more rapid or massive tire either of ar tillery or musketry. The attack resulted In a destructive repulse of the enemy. At the position attacked by Hancock the rebels were entrenched, aud a considerable force between the creek he bad crossed and the river, aud made a pertinacious resistance to his onset, but before dark he had forced them from their works, and driven them across the stream. It is also said that in these engage ments the slaughter of the enemy were very great aud our ioss inconsiderable. The rebels charged against our artillery and suffered se verely, especially from canister. A dispatch from Geu. Grant, dated this morning at (j o'clock, lias also been received. It states that the eneumy have fallen back trom the North Anna and we are in pursuit. Negroes who have come in say that Lee is fallimr back to Richmond. Other olficial^dispatches from headquarters say that Warren, Burnside and Hancock are pushing forward after the retreating army. Warren captured a good number of prison ers.last evening, hut has not the time to count them or ascertain bis loss. Hancock in storming the riflle pits this side of the river last evening, also took between 100 and 200 prisoners, and drove many rebels into the river, where they were drowned. Warren also captured some official papers, amongst them an order calling out all the boys seventeen years of age to garrison Rich mond. Ambulance men aud musicians are al so ordered to the ranks.

Our cavalry pursued them, Inflicting some loss, while that of our owu was very light. The army is in good spirits and confldeut of victory whenever the enemy appears. Headquarters Army Potomac, I Guineas Station, May 22. I The advance of the army under Hancock arrived at Milford yesterday, and met a force of the enemy, said to be 13,000 strong, and drove them through the town, pursuing them some distance.

Seymour on the Seizure of The World and ilounutl .of Commerce. New York. May 24. Governor Seymour's letter to District At torney Halikin, relative to the seiznre of the World aud Journal of Commerce, says:—“It is charged that these acts of violence were with out due legal process, and without the sanc tion of State or national laws. If this be true the offenders must be punished. If the owDers of the above named journals have vio lated State or Nalioual laws they must be proceeded against and punished by those laws. Any action against them outside of legal pro cecdures is criminal.’' The Governor argues the matter at length, and concludes:—“In making your injuries and in prosecuting the parties implicated you will call upon the sher iff of the county and beads of the police de partment for any needed force aud assistance. The failure to give this bv any official under my control will be deemed sufficient causo for removal.” From Cope of Hood Hope. New Yobb, May 24. Cape of Good Hope advices of April 7th state that the Governor proposes an imposi tion of tonnage duties. There were several mercantile failures in Cape Town and Fort Elizabeth. The wool season was over and the stock was light.

Re»(>rv»d Sr»fn 50 Cent». may34dtd U. S. 10-40 BONDS. These Bonds are issued under the Act of Congress Of March 8th, 1864, which provides that in lieu of so inuoh of tbe loan authorized by the Act ef March 3d, 1861, to which this is suplementary, the Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to borrow from time to time, ou the credit of the United States, not exceed ing Two UuMosiD Million 1>ollabs during the curreut fiscal year, and to prepare acd usu« therefor Coupon and Registered Bonds of the United States; and all Boods issued under this Aet shall be Ex mm ft from Taxation by or under any State or muuici pal authority. Subscriptions to these Bonis are re ceived in United States notes ot Motional Banks — They s'oto hr redkkmro in coin, at the pleas ure of tbe Government, at any period less than ten nor more than forty years from their date, and until their redemption fivn ram vent i ntbrebt will bk paid in coin, on Bonds of not over one hundred dollars annually, and on all other bonds se mi-annually. Ibe interest Is payable on the first day of March aud September in each year. The semi annual Cou pons are payable at those dates, and the annual Coupons on the 50 and 100 dollar boods are pay able on tbe first of Maroh. Subscribers will receive either Registered or Cou pon bonds, as they may prefer. Registered Bonds are recorded on the books of tbe l. 8. Treasurer, and esn be tranferred only at the owner's order.— Coupon Bonds are payable to bearer, aud are more convenient lor commercial use. Registered Bonds will be imued of the denomina tions of Fifty Dollars (960). One Hundred Dollars (9100), Five Hundred Dollars (500), Oue Thousand Dollars (91.001), Five Thousand Dollars (95,000), and Ten Thousand Dollars (910,000); and Coupon Bonds ol the denominations of Fifty Dollars (950), One Hundred Dollars (9100). Five Hundred Dollars (9500), and One Thousand Dollars (91,000). Subscribers to this loan will have the option of by paying the accrued interest in coin—(or in United Mates nous, or the notes of National Banks, adding titty per sent, for premium,\ or retire them draw ing interest from the date of subscription and de posit. As the** Bonds are exempt from Municipal or 8tate taxa’ion, their value U increased from one to three per cent per annum, according to the rate of tax levies in various parts of the country. At the present rate of premium on gold thej pay over eight per cent, interest in currency, acd are of equal convenience as a permanent or temporary in vestment. It is be'ieved tbat no securities offer so great in ducements to lenders as the various descriptions of U. 8. Bonds. In all other forms of indebtedness, the faith or ability of priratc parties or stock com panies or separate communities only is pledged for payment, while tor the debtsot the United Mates the whole property of the country is holden to secure the payment or both principal and ieterevt in coin. The Bonds may be subscribed for in sums from •50 up to any magnitude, on the same terms, and are thus made available to the smallest tenter and the largest capitalist. They can bo converted Into money at any moment, and the holder will have the benefit of the interest. The fact that all duties on imports are payable In specie furnishes a fund for like nayment of interest on all Government londs lergtly in excess of the wants of the treasury for this purpose. Upon receipt of subscriptions a certificate of de posit there or, in duplicate, will be issued, the origi nal of which will be forwarded by the subscriber to the Secretary of the Treasury, at Washington, with a letter stating the kind (registered or coupon) and the denominations of bonds required. Upon the receipt of the original certificate at the Treasury Department, the bonds subscribed for will be transmitted to the subscribers respectively. Subscriptions wi 1 be received by the Treasurer of the United States at Washington, and the Assist ant Treasurers at New York. Boetou and Philadel phia and by the First National Bank of Portland, Me., First National Bauk of Augusta, Me., First Na ioual Bank of Bangor.
