United States vs Great Britain, 1812-15, A correspondent of the Baltimore Ameri can has furnished that paper with a list of the British vessels of war captured by the Ameri cans in the war of 1812-15, with the cumber of guns; also a list of British privateers mouotlng about ten guns each, and command ed by naval officers, captured by our naval vessels or privateers, and the number of British merchant vessels which became prizes to our national or prlvatf cruisers. The lift is interesting, as showing how much a nation almost without a navy could do to trouble end harrass the proud mistress of the seas, and Its reproduction may serve to remind John Ball of the std dilemma in which he will fli d himself placed should his sympathy for tLe Confederate pirates teed to e rupture between the two natlous, and let loose our “dogs of war" upon his commerce, now, so far as we are concerned, enjoying almost a monopoly of the carrying trade of the world. Diring the war referred to we captured from Great Britain sixty-two vessels of war, mounting in the aggregate 870 guns. These ranged from the Chippewa of a single gun, up to the Macedonia, Guerrier and Java, of 49 guns, each. Six ot them were captured on Lake Erie; eight on Lake Champlain, and one on Lake Huron. The rest were captured iu the Atlantic waters. Fourteen of them were privateers commanded by naval officers, and mounting in the aggregate 120 guns. Besides the above captures we took the fol lowing prizes in the shape of merchant vesfels armed with from one to eight or ten guns each, to wit: Cans. 355 •3ftgtm'v'a,'no’ i*1 tb° 690schooners" “ “ “ 000 760 various denominations (recaptured,) 2,800 135 unarmed sloops, 62 national ships as above, 870 31 ships of war lost at sea, while en gaged in service during tbe same war, 809 2,402 vessels, with an aggregate of 9,978 The above affords some idea of the ex pense to Great Britain, In naval and mara tlme property, of the war of 1812-15, when their armed cruisers covered every sea, and ours was a nation scarcely thirty years old, without forts, without a navy, and with a mere handful of population as compared with that of the British Islands. To-day the figures are somewhat changed. We are armed to the teeth upon the ocean; our commerce has been almost driven frum the seas by Confedero-Brilish pirates, while her commerce was never before so extensive scattered over the world. The effect of a rupture of amicable relations would accrue to the benefit of thousands of American priva teers, while to British commercial interests it would be calamitous in the extreme. The $300 Commutation Clause. Referring to the new or modified enroll ment act which became a law before the dual adjournment of Congress, the Argus says: Itrepggls the $300 commutation, and oblig es every drafted man to go or to furnish a sub stitute. The prices of substitutes will proba bly range so high that only rich men can ob taiu them, leaviug the poor man no alterna tive but to shoulder his musket. * • • This is the most important measure,as affect ing the poor man, that has yet been adopted by this extraordinary administration. When the Union papers last year asserted that the commutation clause was put into the enrollment bill to prevent excessive specula tion in substitutes, and to afford the man of moderate means an opportunity for exemp tion, the copperhead papers—and the Argus was cheek-by-iowl with them in this thing— were persistent and unwearied in their ap peals to the poor mau to inflame his prejudices and to make him believe the $300 clause was for the benefit of the rich msn, while no poor mau could receive any advantage from it— The following are samples of the way in which it was referred to by our city contem porary. Taking up a file of that paper aDd opening at random, we find, Sept. 5th: “it |ibe draft] is still laying its lieary hand upon sous and brothers iu the Pine Tree Stale, and taking them from home, unless they have $300 wherewith to purchase exemp tion.” Sept 8tb, 1864, we find the same paper, re ferriug to an article in the Press,—which in sisted that the conscription law, in its exemp tion clause, respected the poor—using the fol lowing language: IU [the conscription law'sj “ respect for the poor” is remarkable. It says to the rich man give us your $800, but to the poor man it says give yourself, VOLK life to the service! Such flings as these were as common in the columns of that paper, during the campaign of last year, as caterplllers on a fruit tree in Juue, ail intended to inflame the prejudices of the poor man, and to make him believe the $300 provision was for his disadvantage and only for the benefit of the rich man. Now we find the same paper, when the commutation clause has beeu stricken out, aud the drafted mau must either shoulder Ids musket or provide a substitute, with a long face, a lachrymose eye and a tone of deep sympathy, saying that the repeal of the $300 Clause “is the most Important measure, as af fecting the poor man, that has yet heen adopt ed by this extraordinary administration;” that it “leaves the poor man no altebn ativk but to shoulder his musket.” Last fall the same consistent paper, for par- i (Isas effect and to subserve partisan purposes, »—■ ■ .«! - ——— did not hesitate to allege that this law had no other respect for the poor man than to say, “give yourself, pour life to the service," while to the rich man it mildly said, “give us your MOO,” and thus escape all hardship and all danger! Comment is unnecessary. The motive for such a zig zig course, for thus blowing hot and cold, is too transparent to need a word of exposure. Last year the government could be most effectually opposed aud the draft ren dered most obnoxious, by representing the MOO commutation clause as a rich man’s pro vision; now that it is repealed in order to 1111 up tile ranks and to secure soldiers instead of money, the same disloyal object Is easiest pro moted by a ekauge of tactics, and by repre senting it as the poor mail's friend, and its re [>eal as the “ uukiudest cut of all,"—the de struction ol the poor man's last aud only hope! Out upon such arrant hypocrisy—such dis honorable and Janus-laced methods of em barrassing a Government which calls upon every good citizen to stand by it in its hour of trial. The Paris Patrie. Tills journal is quite outspoken in relation to our affairs, aud advocates European media tion. It is somewhat severe on English diplo macy. It don’t like this waiting for more in telligence from Washington as the English government seem disposed to do, and it keeps waiting until the Pari* Patrie is out of pa tience with the Palmerston Ministry. It thiuks this Miuistry has humiliated itself before our government for the last two years. And it asks,“Will it gain anything by It?" If the Imperial government shall pledge itself to me diation, England will pay the penalty for her former disdain, aud will be forced to accept a position subordinate to France. This journal is full of bombast as usual, and talks very flip pantly about American affairs. It professes to , believe that propositions of arbitration coming ■ from France would be more favorably receiv ed at Washington than those emanating from I England. This is a very “llatleriug unction.” But alter all, this bombastic journal foresees some embarrassment for Napoleon III in tile ' question, because if the Emperor, faithful to hisiutpiraliuuxand to the sentiments of France, exacts as the price of au official recognition, j the promise of a gradual, or sudden, emanci pation of slavery, what would the Confederates ; reply? There's the rub. The response here ' liecomes embarrassing, for this journal says, “Napoleon III.could not overlook this question j of slavery. All of us iu France, aud the Em peror iu chief, are loo deeply imbued with the spirit of'89 to sanction, even by our silence, tbe maintenauce of such and institution. But the Richmond Cabinet will reply that the so lution of the emancipation qu. stiou belongs exclusively to the Confederate States.” Well what then ? Does that relieve the Emperor and his liberty-loving subjects from tbe embar rassment above alluded to? Of course these rebels will keep their hold upon slavery if pos sible, for it is slavery that drove them to com mence this most unrighteous war, and it is i slavery for which they are now fighting, aud nothing else. They may talk uutil doomsday of their firesides, their family altars, aud their free institutions, and endeavor to convince the French Emperor and the “rest of mankind” that they are fighting for such blessed privil eges, but tbe world knows better. It is hu man bondage, tbe chief corner stone of their so called Confederate Slates, for which they commenced this war, and lor which they are I still giving battle. The Paris Patrie knows this as well as we do, and then why not come out boldly and de clare it? Why express sympathy for such rebels as this journal does, at the same time it is compelled to confess that slavery is repug nant to the “spirit of W with w hich the Em peror an 1 Us subjects are so “deeply imbued”? It is hard to exercise the virtue of patience with such journals. Theft course is entirely inconsistent, and withal manifestly against the spirit of liberty they pretend to prize so high ly. They are contracting au account which WVtS worV3, an(f a tearful account it is. Such hypocrisy cannot always thrive even in La Belle France. Temperance in Saccarappa. The Sabbath School of the Methodist socie ty, in this village, commenced a great work last Sabbath afternoon. About one hundred and twenty teachers and scholars subscribed the following pledge: We, the undersigned, do hereby pledge our selves to absiain from all intoxicating drinks of every name or kind, including malt, brew ed, and fermented liquors, and not to par take of the same or furnish them to others as a beverage, and to endeavor, by all means within our power and by our Influence, to promote and advance tbe Temperance Cause iB every lawful aud honorable way. This is beginning exactly in the right place, and if the movement becomes general, It will tell more powerfully upon the cause perhaps than sny other instrumentality that could possibly be employed. Temperance convent ;ous, and societies of all other descriptions, iu the present slate of public sentiment, are quite essential, and tbe law cannot now be dispensed with for the prone.tion of the cause. But if every Sabbath in tliA Iniiil wnuM uil/mt ii.a -v- • i-e—-o ; pledge, and religiously observe it in ail its | iuliuesa and force, we verily believe that ruin i selling would soon cease, and the law become | a‘dead letter upon our statute books, i ‘‘Prevention is better than cure,” is an old adage of peculiar significance, and there is no subject to which its application would secure more beneficial results than that of temper ance. No thinking man will doubt that the i value of a temperance pledge when subscrib ed iu a Sabbath School is greater tbeu when taken iu Becuiar schools; because in the for mer case it is accompanied by the inculcation of religious truth, \rhich sinks deeper, and t ikes a firmer hold on the conscience, than mere intellectual teachings. Kev. Mr. Moore, pastor of the church in Saccarappa, and Mr. Peuuell, superintendent of the Sabbath School, together with the en , tire school, may congratulate themselves upon having so auspiciously begun a uoble work : . and the frieuds ol temperance throughout the State will heartily thauk them for it. Other Sabbath Schools have done the same thing. But there are many in which, if this beuevoleut movement should be made, there would soon be visible vast improvement in other respects. We think, therefore, they owe it to the cause oi humanity toeuter upon this admirable service at once. Comparison of the Yearly Fall of Rain. Portland, July 11, 1804.

They also burned the bridges at Ashlaud and the Ashland iron works. The bridges over Gunpowder Creek at Hanover Junction, were also burned. It is believed that the trains and engines have thus far escaped. A report, which seems to lie well founded, says a portion of this force was within seven miles of this city this evening, oil the York road. It is believed that the lorce which was moving in the direction of the I’eun. railroad has retreated. There is no doubt the force engaged by Gen.

The engagement lasted one hour aud two ; minutes: at the expiration of which time, she I surr. n.:ered aud hoisted the white Hag signiiy iug distiess. We immediately ceased tiring when the Alabama, sent a boat along side with an officer, to say, that they were sinking. \ye lowered two of our boats, the others having shot-holes in them, and sent to their assistance, llelore our boats leached her, she went down. We however succeeded in biinging sixty-eight oi them on hoard our vessel: Ulteen ol this number were very badly wounded. One olll cer aud two men have siuco died from their wounds. We have now on board live of her otlicers; the men we have paroled and sent o u shore. A number of her otlicers were picked up by an English.yacht and taken to England. it is not known whether Capt. Semmes es caped or not, lie was last seen in the water holding on to a gratiug. One of tire otlicers captured, was a school- j male of mine at the naval academy. He de- I scribed the carnage on board his ship as ' terrific, aud says she was a complete slaught er house. Nearly all ol his guns’crew were shot away by one of our shells. They tired about two shots to our one, ami most of their shot and shell went over us. A number of shot struck u< aloft, cutting away some of our riguing, but only one took effect in our j hull We bad only three of our men wounded badly, none killed. I aui glad to say, we have I been victorous and I am alive aud well. One 100 lb rifle shell struck ns nearly under where I was standing, which lilted me up j from the deck about live or six inches. This shell lodged in our stein post.and had it exploded would have injured us very much. I think we may be obliged t# go into dock 1 for a few days, but our damages are comiiar atively slight.
