Oapt. Semmes self-convicted. This pirate Captain wrote a book which was published in 1851, entitled,“Service Afloat and Ashore." It narrates a portion of the ser vice rendered by our navy daring the Mexican, war iu which the author wa« a junior officer. He lays down international law iu the lan guage which follows: To render privateering available to her [Mexico | uuder the law ol nalious, it was nec essary mat a msjority of the officers aud crew of eaeu cruiser saould be citizen*^ not citizens made ad hoc, iu iraud of the law, but bona fide citizeus; aud any vessel which might uave attempted lo cruise, uuder a let ter of marque aud reprisal, w ithout this essen tial requisite, would have become from that moment a pirate. * • * Without the ob servance ol these principles, no man can trans fer his allegiance to another country, and claim the protection due to citizenship uuder ita taws. It would be a monstrous doctrine, indeed, if, ou the eve of a war, or auy lime during'its existence, either of the belligerents might in vite the citizeus of other nalious, ad libitum to take partin his quarrel, and, with a single stroke of his neu, make them citizens pro hoc rice.” It had its origin in remote aud com paratively barbarous ages, and has for its ob ject rather the piuuiler of the bauditlhan hon orable warfare. « » » in short, they [privateers] are little better than licensed pl lates; aud it behooves ail civilized nations in foreign trade, to suppress the practice alto gether.” Such were the opinions of Capt. Semmes thirteen years ago. Now none of these req uisites were complied with in the case of the Alabama crew. A majority of them were Frenchmen and Englishmen not only by birth but by nationality. According to bis own shewing be is himself a pirate in common with his crew, for it is requisite that a majority of both officers and men oil a privateer lie citi zens of a Slate on whose behalf she scours the seas: otherwise she is to be regarded and treated as a piratical vessel. No wonder lie sought refuge on board the Deerhound. How much there is iu the Scripture saying."O that mine enemy would write a book!’’ Lieut. Joseph £. Colby. We hive received a long biographical anti obituary notice of this gallant officer, a worthy and estimable citizen of Rumford, who died in the rear of the army near Petersburg, Va., June 25,1804. Uuable to make room for the article in full, we give the following abstract. Lieut. Colby was born in Coucord, N. B., but removed to Rumford many years since, where he has been engaged chiefly in farming, though at limes he has had something to do with mercantile business, and been called by his lel'ow-citizens to All many offices of re sponsibility. In every position in which he has been placed be has acquitted himself with fi delity and honor. Be was a public-spirited man, and a liberal contributor to the support of churches, schools, etc. He was an unconditional patriot, believing In standing by the Ciovermeut to the last man and the last dollar, and be proved his devotion to his country by dedicating his efforts and life to Its service. He was commissioned 2d Lieut. In Co. B, 32d Maine regiment, his commission bearing dale March 10, 1804. He left Augus ta with his regiment for the seat of war April 20th, w as in the severe battle of the Wilder * mss and engaged with the enemy during the bloody days which followed, receiving a wound In life wrist which disabled him. He became a victim of that terrible scourge of the army, chronic diarrhea, and was advis ed to resign or at least to avail himself of the benefit of a furlough, but he refused to turn his back upon the conflict while he could share with bis comrades the toils and daugers of the camp. Carrying out this determination he went to the front, but died as above stated. His body was embalmed and forwarded to hi* friends for interment. The funeral rites were performed at Rumford Centref July 4th, with masonic observances. Large delegations of masons were present from the Lodges in Mexico, Bethel, Paris, North Anson and Port land. Lieut Colby was 44 years of age, and is sur vived by a wife and six children. What a Soldier can save. A private in the 13th Me. Iteg. hail on the allotment roll $10,00 per month reserved to be deposited in the Swings' Bank, reserving on ly $3 per month to speud for himself. After twenty mouths’ pay the allotment was discon tinued. Two hundred dollars therefore were deposited. Out of the $3,00 per month, and by taking what money is allowed if clothing is sot drawn, he managed to save aud send home at one time, $25 for a watch and some other things, at another time $21, to be forwarded to his lather In Nova Scotia. Within a few days $250 have come by Express to be also deposit ed in the Bauk. The State and city bounties for re-enlistment are yet to be paid, which will swell the sum, with interest accrued, to up wards of $750. At the close of the war at this rate he will have a big pile for himself. We commend this example for the imitation of all other of our brave soldiers in arms for the de fence of our country. Economy and good hab its are the secret of all this. Neither tobacco nor liquor has been used by him. See, then, what a common soldier can save!

To the Editor of Prcst It is not that I have anything very inter- | esting to commuoleate that induces me to ; write you at this time, hut having, today, a few leisure moments, I will send you what- I ever thoughts turn up. If they are of uo value, they w ilt do no harm, perhaps. Of course you have read many accounts of I the siukiug ol the Alabama by the Kearsarge, j hut 1 trust you have not been annoyed, as I I have been, by persistent misrepresentations of the affair, and the mo>t uauseating praise ol (.'apt. Serames, his officers and crew. The accounts here have goue so far as to assert that the Kearsarge had sixteen guns while the Alabama had but live; that the Kearsarge was vastly larger than the Alabama, had a much mare numerous crew, etc., etc. And again, they say that the Alabama was fought lieller.her guns better aimed and quick- . er llred, (two to oue) and that her crew only wauted a chance to board the Kearsarge, when they would have made quick work ol the Yankees. I have carefully read all that 1 could see in the papers, aim compared the very conflicting accounts. 1 believe the following statement to be essentially correct. The Alabama was 11S1 tons, the Kear sarge, 1031. Her crew numbered lll5; the Al abama’s 147. The Alabama had eight guns, the Kearsarge, seven. The Kearsarge is spoken of as being irou-ciad. Hie was no more iron-clad than the Alabama might have been. She simply had chains banging over her sides to protect her machinery. Two shots from the Alabama struck these chains. out UlU no serious injury, it nas seiuoui been the case, iu a naval engagement, that the lorce was so equal. Capt. Seinines knew all about the Kearsarge as well as his ow n ship, and doubtless thought he should con quer, or he would not have made the attempt. Had he succeeded, these same papers, the Times, Standard, Telegraph, etc., would have 0,-eu astonished at the presumption of the silly Yankees, iu thinking they could stand any chance with "the brave Capt. Semmes and his gallant crew." The Western Daily Piess, published in Bristol, says “the Alabama was much iuferior iu every respect to her an tagonist, but the brave Capt. Semmes could never see a yaukee man-of-war without doing all he could to engage her." This in the lace of the notorious fact that he has always run away from them until this time, when he tiled his hand and got splendidly whipped. The same paper says that "his crew,who had been so gallantly employed far two years, could not patiently wait iu idleness three months for the ship to repair,”ifre. Gallantly employed!! in burning unarmed merchaut ships that were unable to make any resistance. It is very clear . now to every one. that the “Deerhound," of the Euglish ltoyal Yacht Squadron, acted as a tender to the Alabama throughout the whole affair. There aie various opiuious in regard to the escape of Capt. Semmes. Some think that Capt. Winslow's personal regard for Semmes was too much for his sense of duly, aud that he gladly connived at his es cape. It is evident that he could have brought the Deerhound to with a shot if he had been so disposed; and I have been told in London, that while he was there he was heard to speak of Semmes in the highest terms of admiration, sayiug that they had been ou terms of the greatest Intimacy—hud worn each other'* clothe* etc.—aud Ibis too to his own officers, ou board his own ship. Ou the Sunday preceding tha battle, I came down the river from Antwerp to Flush ing (00 miles) iu company with Mr. Thornton, first officer of the Kearsarge, and Mr. Smith, an engineer. Wc were iu the Euglish steam er Dolphin, bound to London, but stopped near the Keareargc to put those officers ou board. Mr. Thornton's appearance impressed me very favorably, aud I see lhat great credit is awarded him f >r his conduct durimr tile ue tion, particularly l'or his excellent gunnery. He is Irotn Coos County, X. H. Why do the English sympathize so freely and warmly w ith Seminas ? for certaioly, to judge by the tone of ail their commercial pa peis,and Lite talk ol their commercial men, one would take that sentiment to be all but universal. I have often asked the reason, but have failed to elicit any satisfactory reply. I have been told that "it was sympathy for the weaker party!" All gammon that. There is very little sympathy lor the weak among any class in this country. Their sympathy is ail lor the strong. The true reason, I think, may be found in the old adage, "a fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind.” So many com mercial men have taken shares in blockade runners, and so many of all classes hold the Confederate loan that their sympathies lollow their interest. They have engaged in unlaw ful transactions, in assisting knaves, traitors and pirates, until their minds lean to. and sympathize with rascality and villany gener ally. When 1 have asked them If they sym pathized with the weaker party iu all the previous cruise of the Alabama, the only reply was "Oh I that is a ditfereut ease." 1 trust the day will come when they will find it to be “a itifl'erenl case,” when Great Britain will pay tbe U.S. for all the injury iotlicled on our commerce by British pirates. The English nation is at this lime in very had odor on the continent. The Danes com plain that Eugiatid, after encouraging her to go to war, has meanly deserted her; and the Prussians, agaiu, say that had it not been for the treachery of England iu giving Denmark to understand that she would support her, when she had no inteution ol so doing, there would have been no war. England is there fore regarded with perfect contempt by both parties. They express their derision of Eng land iu every possible manner. I saw Pictor ials in Coulentz and iu Cologne as ell, in which every tliiug English was treated coii temtuously. English horses; English dogs: English lood—as roast lieef, hton .hop, plum pudding; English driuks— 1', rter ’id ale, were all represented as lx i turn, d from with loathing; and even Shu -• speare was despised; the interior of a th .e being represented in which a p ay of his was being uerformed. slmwimr on tbs bilk lliqt the ninth eace were all turning away their faces an«l stepping their ears. England has in this case tried to please both parties, as she did with us iu America, and with equal success She lias earned and she receives, the contempt of all. Her conniving at building and Biting out pirate* to prey upon our commerce, will prove the dearest piece of treachery to her. This invention “will return to plague the in ventor” ten fold. Why stands Eugland in such a humiliating position at the present time ? t Is it not because she acts from no principle, but only studies expediency? Two things are wanted to renovate Eugland, and they would do the work effectually. Abolish the right of primogeniture — that barbarism i planted in Eugland by her conqueror, Wil liam oi Normandy, “the son of a French 1 prostitute, the plunderer of the English na tion,” to whom royalty traces its pedigree, and calls it "the fountain of honor”—and es tatdish common schools a> iu New England, then would the regeneration ol England have been well begun. Hut governed as she is by a privileged class, with no principle except to retain and make secuie their unjust privileges, this proud nation is a mark of contempt to the world; when, if lightly governed, she would he a beacon in the path of liberty, and a guide and friend to all nations who are on the march for freedom. She would tbeu be admired as much as she is now contemned. I must now break off suddenly, and can only write, Yours, as ever, j. H.

The clerks who have been doiug guard duly night ly are doubtless congratulating themselves upon the prospect of being relieved from their unwonted service, and the Quartermaster’s force, which went to the Held last Sunday, is probably about ready to return laden with laurels. 1 he great event of the iuvnsinu, hovfever, was the muster of the District militia to-day at the City Hail. Weil might it have struck dismay into the hard and leathery hearts ol Ewell's veterans could they have beheld what l saw, and part of which I was. Even when telegraphed to him by some inside secession ist, as it probably was through signals of some sort, the demonstration produced a decided i effect. 80, though after waitiag a good while, wo received permission to go home till further orders, we have a right to feel that we did not rally in vaiu. Some, indeed, affect to believe the retreat of the rebs immediately after to have been iu consequence of the timely arriv al of the Oth Corps from before Petersburg and the 10th from the South, but I am bound to believe it was the terror of the eitizeu sol diery that started our unwelcome visitors ou their return, indeed, I do not question that another such demonstration might make some impression upon Richmond itself, and in the present dearth of any new projects lor the capture of that stroughold, it may not be pre sumptuous to suggest this easy and bloodless plan of attack. To-night an attempt is to he made to‘re establish railroad communication with Balti more. Doubtless travel between this city and Xew York will be resumed in a few days, and tooue dweller in Wasbiuglon at least that event will be very welcome. T. 8. P. Rkpkksentative to Coxuiikss.—A com munication from an educated eitizeu of this county, complimentary to the Union candi date for Congress in this district, did not come to hand in season for this number. \Ve thank the writer for it: not because it is needed to make the people think well of John Ltncu, but became it is refreshing to contemplate a candidate ofaucii s ter I iug integrity and manly worth. Mr. I.yuch is no mere fustian man: he has real, substantial worth, and .will do hon or to the district. His election js one of the surest things of the future.
