If evei a people were called upon to fast and pray, it is the American people. If there ever wa« an occasion for deep humiliation, on tbs part of the North especially, that time is now. And It we may expect the blessing ol Almighty God upon our arms—if we may confidently look for immediate or ultimate success to the eause of Human Rights and tiit erection of a sound constitutional govern ment—then we must as a people, in the spir it of earnest supplication, implore aid from on Nat only should professed Christians and members ol our churches, but all wbo love toe truth and labor for the moral elevation of uian in the various departments of benevo lence, should meet iu their several places of divioe worship on the day designated by the President of the Uuited States, and humbly aa«l unitedly beseech the God of the Universe and our fathers’ God, that he would merciful ly forgive our sins, and help us to overcome this wicked rebellion and forever remove its accursed cause. That slavery is the prime cause of the re bellion no sano person can doubt. All Union men at the .South, now or hitherto .slavehold ers, distinctly and unequivocally thus affirm, and multitudes at the North, who had here tofore failed to perceive the fact, now freely acknowledge it. This U amnug the glorious signs of the times, aud calls lor devout grati tude to Almighty God. There is another fact not less significant nor important; audit ought to bring every preying man <Jn his knees in thankfulness: noil-professors—so-called irreligious men—ol whom It has never been supposed that they viewed God’s providence in national affair.-, now openly declare that ills hand is distinct iy «eeg in the conduct of this war. And what is more and better, they believe in Gods power, and put confidence in Him as the only source from which deliverance can come Irom this mighty struggle. Shall professors of religion, then, lie behind | the world in their recognition of God ? Khali ' those wbo have covenanted with the Almighty. who have taken upon themselves solemn vows, whose dependence for success in whatever ef fort is entirely upon Him—shall these, iu this ! our hour of utmost need, fail to call upon God ? Let their presence and co-operation at our places of public worship on Thursday next, testily their willingness to acknowledge i their Maker, aud to pray for divine aid. We are among those who accept the senti mtut—"Trust in God, aud keep your powdei dry.’’ Tlie spirit ol unwonted patriotism cx hibited in this land has fully- illustrated the latter portion of the sentiment. Would to God Its former part were I fetter exemplified by professors of teligion. Then would light break through our darkness, and the glory of God be displayed in the speedy overthrow of the rebellion, and the establishment of a righteous government. • The Foundations of Petersburg. A correspondent of the Klcl.m nJ Whig, wiidug from Petersburg. July 10th,says: loved Cockade city will mou be, if it is I cot at this very moment, thoroughly under mi.ied. Giant, far Irorn being coulent to hloa up the ‘rebel loriilic uions,’ has determined to destroy the entire rlty, as by a tremendous blast Irorn the infernal legions. Iu a single iusUiut every building iu the principal streets ol Petersburg will be lifted on high aud scat tered to the four winds of heaven. You may iaugu at this, but it Uso. My iulormsut ha* i a diagram ol the mines, which, when complet ! ed, will extend the length of Boliinghniok IS auk, Sycamore and Oi l streets, aud perhaps I as br as the old Fair grounds, on the south ol . the city. ‘This is incredible aud impossible on the lace of it,’ you will say. Very well: vou are welcome to vmir oninirm Am ,1 w';!l be good euougb to tell me what leat ever 1 attempted with the pick and spade the Van- j kees have failed to execute; and will you ex- j plain to me the meaning of Grant's long in action ? I will tell you this U no canard— 1 would that it were—bnt a plain statement of facia, procured by me from an entirely reliable I aource. The Surrender of Semmes. The New York Herald says the surrender cf the pirate Semmes by the British Govern- , meat Is regarded as necessary to the vindica tion of the claims of the United States, aud a formal demand therefor lies lieeu made. The Secre'ary of State i«, in this instance, deter mined to require of Euglaud her observance of tbe interna'.iouai law which she has iuvari- : ably exacted from every other nation, aud I which, in one notable instance during this ad ministration, has been acted upon by us with out any demand. The Mason and tslidell case, although not exactly similar, is regarded as analogous. Semmes was the prisoner of the commander of the Kearsarge, aud only from motives of humanity was allowed to be pick ed up by the yacht Deerhound. His delivery to the Federal authorities is required as an act of international justice No Doubt of it. Tne Portsmouth States aud Union say s: “ If Gen. Pierce could be President we should have peace, aud the old Union would be restored in three mouths alter his inaugur ation.” No doubt of it, if he"could have his way. He > would make peace with his old Secretary ol War even though it cost him his kingdom. If Jeff, would not come to terms Pierce would, and allow the Southern hotspurs to rtlie again as they did a few years since. We should have peace; the peace of tbe dead sea; peace on 'the grave of liberty. * % ■1 TJL, ■™| 1L 1 ■■ North Carolina. Perhaps all the readers of the Press are not aware of the growing exteut and importance of the Union demonstrations iu Xorth Caroli na. A very large portion of the inhabitants of that state hnvi1 never been cordially with the secession movement, and their dislike to that , miserable abortion which calls itself the Con federate Government has steadily increased. Desertion* from the army have reached a point which excites the alarm ot the rebel authori ties. and their etlbrts to check this drain upon their strength have higherto been powerless. These deserters liud refuge and concealment in the more remote districts, especially among the mountains. They exist often iu large and organized band, well armed, and able in those tas'.uesses to cope with any force which the Confederates are likely to bring against them. Nor are these men obliged to lie eoneeaied. On the contrary they have au open and cor dial intercourse with the inhabitants, who are so far friendly to them, aud hostile to the des potism from which they have tied that they are ever ready to assist them with supplies or con cealment. Indeed a person from the North would be surprised to nolo the exteut ol the seulimeut of attachment to the old Union which exists among these people, aud which Is having a marked effect on the politics of the state. Iu the elections, which arc to take place during the coming month, they have, in fact, made tills au open and deliberate issue. < )| the two candidates for Governor now in the Held, one stands pledged to do his utmost for the restoration of amicable relations with the Government of the United States. It is very po-sible that this party may not prove sulll ciently strong to carry the election iu the face of ail the influences, legal and illegal, which will be brought against it. Still its strength is daily increasing; and the mere lact of its existence in such numbers, and such open g ii-e is of tremendous importance, it shows whit immense strides the loyal sentiment has in i le since the time when traud and violence hot power to stifle the voice of patriotism, and enact the miserable farce of “taking the state out of the Union.” Numerous journals, devoted to the advoca cy of this good cause, are urging it onward with zeal aud ability, and public discussions of the questions involved are frequent and large ly attended. The Richmond Examiner of July lSib, has a long article on this subject in which it pi tinly-reveals the anxiety with which the movement is regarded hy the rebel leaders. The Examiner admits the weight and respect ability of the movement, saying that it is use less to pretend that it is “ made up mainly rl tories aud deserters, since no party in auy state could subsist altogether on that sort of basis, and there must be and are large numbers of honest citizens wlto are actually deluded by the loud and constant outcries of those wlto call themselves conservatives,'’ Ac. The state of things is evidently very painful to the Ex aminer, which waxes eloquent in its warnings to the people of North Carolina of the dangers they will incur tty withdrawing themselves from tlie protection of the Confederacy, aud deeply regrets that there should lx; “so large a proportion of simple aud credulous |x-ople in that state" who really believe that they would be better ort'iu a return to the old regime than under the blessings of Jeff. Davis’ rule. We must however, beg of the writer in the Examiner, that he will possess his soul in pa tience. This is a movement which neither hi* warnings uoi his regrets can have weight with. The people of North Carolina have weighed secession and the Confederacy in the balance aud found litem wanting. They are not like ly to bs a second time deluded with glowing words. And they are not alone in their awak ening. Throughout the eutire Confederacy, the scales are falling Irom men's eyes. They ! see their infatuation and the ruin it has brought ] ihem, aud they begin to discern the remedy These things, anil others like them, are tin beginning ol the end. The return to reason loyalty and peace must come, and wo believe it is not very far off. El'SILOX. Letter from the State Capital. Aitgi'sta, July 2S, IStD.

The usual prize declamation and concert came oil last evening at the Free Baptist Church. Quite a contrast was noticable l>e tween the audience of last evening and that which went to hear Rev. Mr. Walker. The latter was older and more dignified and com posed mostly of people from Auburn and Lew istou. l.ast evening many strangers, from the variou * parts of our county aud state, were present. The Order of Exercises (in terspersed with music) was as follow-: 1. Rod and our Country, W. S. Tyron. Powual. 1. /testing of Ho- Human Race, Gilbert Hathorn, Woolwich. t •'!.

My space will not allow many individual criticisms, aud those must be of a commend atory character as far as possible. The speak ers were generally '|uite young, aud were open to the criticism of not fully appreciating the merit aud sentiments of their selections. Moulton, Morgan, Pearson and Holt were least lacking in lids respect. J| MuttUon, had he avoided that “left handed'' gesture, and thrown more fire aud energy in to his part, would have borne otf the palm last evening, for his intonations were tine, his voice solt and musical, he was evidently at home upon the stage and he held the atten tion of his hearers to the end. Morgan had a good selection and entered into the spirit of it, but a lisp in his utter ance, and an appearauce of all'ectaliou de tracted much Iroin his delivery. He improv ed toward the close, and imnresscd us with the idea that with proper culture he will one day make a tine speaker. Pear mu. This speaker was unlurtunate in his selection. I know of no author whose pieces are harder to declaim, than Webster, but considering the difficulties he had to overcome, he did excellently. Holt. An excellent voice, and generally at Ids command are among the favorable criti cisms to be made iq-on this dechUmer. His was a dramatic piece, and such as generally command the attention, and he executed it with much ability; but we are sorry that oiatorv proper is not encouraged instead, aud we think that in this instance in particular, Mr. Holt would have received greater credit had he made a different selection. Freeman and Enter i/ might he spokeu of favorably among the speakers, aud space alone prevents our mentioning other declaim ed with many words of commendation. C.Vr-HAXlR. English Ignorance of American Affairs. President Fairfield of Hillsdale College, Michigan, writes front London to the IJHBoit .Idcertixer concerning the feeling of glish people toward the United State#, the gross ignorance of the people not oulyW Atnericau affairs, but of the simplest geograph ical facts: “I am s >rry to say it, hut after a mouth spent iu Great Uriiiau, and eight, months in travel generally, in which 1 have constantly been brought [nto contact and ftieudiy per sonal relations with Englishmen, I am compel led to believe that envy of our national suc cess and hostility to our uational growth is die controlling h eliug of the Eugiish people; and certainly 1 cat) count upon ttie lingers ol one hand all that I have found iu nine mouths who were in cordia1 sympathy with us in sup pressing a pro slavery rebellion which seeks toestablish an empire of which slavery shall be the corner-stone. You will understand that I have made it no part of my business particularly lu seek out our friends, but speak of those whom 1 have ehuuced to meet in ho tels, cats and elsewhere, which 1 think much Lite fairest way of ascertaining the general feeling. One who addn sses public audiences oil the American side ol the question will na turally gather about him those of Ids ow n op inions, .and will he likely very much to mis judge as to the attitude of the great mass. And the general ignorance of the people, not only of the questions at issue between the North and tbe South, hut even of the simplest facts of American geography, is most amusing. ‘Is Maine one o( the Northern or one of the Southern States*’ asked a talkative English man the other day. wlieu allusion was made to this boundary State between our eountry and the British possessions iu North America. •( >hio, I lielieve, is one of the largest cities of New York, is it not ?’ was tbu sagacious en quiry of another. I cannot tell you how many times 1 have been asked, when saying that I came from Michigan. ’Is that in North Amer ica or South America ?’ Certainly more than twenty. Several Englishmen were epoakiug with each other a few days ago, and one of them, in expressing his large conception of what progress had beeu made in the Stales, assert ed, 1 suppose that railroads are now built as tar as six hundred miles into the interior! Several Americans aud Englishmen met at ’able a few weeks ago. The American war wa« the subject, when o.te of the latter, a member of Parliament, said to the Americans : 1 am surprised that you should object to a separation from the Sooth. You were never nade to be one. Only see! a mere ueck of and of iusiguitlcant dimensions connecting ■lie two!’ And lie drew his lingers into shape to Indicate the isthmus which connects North ami > null America. And what is still rich ■r. I have related this story to several part ies j of Englishman, and not one of them has a» yet detected the joke.” SKNATolt SllEBilANS Views.—Senator John Sherman of Ohio,having been serenaded in Cincinnati on the ltith. made a response, in which he said: "1 nave seen a great deal of Mr. Lincoln, lu my official relations w ith him 1 have bud occasion to ditier with him, sometimes very ilecidedly: but I feel bound to say that when tv- measures bad been examined critically, and under the light of nil the surrounding cir cumstances, they have been found w ise aud successful. H!* Proclamation of Emancipa tion was not made till every loyai man must . uavc felt that the slaves were either to he mus tered on our side or against us. They were employed as the most valuable aid to the I rebels, and would have continued to be their most valuable auxiliary were it not that the idea of freedom has impaired their value as slaves. Tne arming of slaves was postponed till tne prejudices of our people gave way to the absolute demand for troops to occupy and hold important positions In the South. Thgye is not a single act of Mr. Lincoln's that 1 cau recall but has been justified by events, unless it has been his earnest desire to conciliate his political adversaries, and they surely should not deuouuce him for this, lie has occupied a position of greater difficulty than any man in our generation; aud if you could see the anxious solicitude with which he performs all the duties of his office, the pa tient endurance, the care aud kindness with which he reconciles opposing opinions, you would know how well grounded his populari ty is with the masses of our peope." Ky-.The New York World says, “ it is thun dering all rounu the sky in the Southwest.— Gen. Rot'ssKAf, it seems, has captured Mont gomery, the capital of Alabama, aud has cut all the roads leading Irom Atlanta to the West and Southwest. If the destruction is a« com plete as reported, it must serum-] y embarrass the rebel army under Hook. It seems, too, that tbe railroads of Atlanta are also tom up by another raiding party. Hood's only line of retreat is to Macon, and that may be takcu away from him at any moment. These last cavalry raids are the most daring and prom ise to be the most fruitful of tho war." KlBE.—The buildings of Horace Hutier, situated on the marsh road leading to Tho m aston, took fire on Saturday morning last, and were totally consumed. They consisted of a house, barn, porch and other out buildings. He had a considerable quantity of hay in his barn, which was consumed, together with farming tools. Nearly all the furniture in the house was saved, and that was about all that escaped the flames. How the lire originated is not known. The loss Is estimated at ♦21XX).

The wretch who would at tempt to palm such an imposition upon an lion est stranger, deserves the reprobation of every good citizen. iiTTlie Argus undertakes to convict Presi dent Lincoln of inconsistency because lie does not, in all things, hold thesamo opinions to-day that he did three y ears ago. <hir neigldH.rcon siders it indicative of wisdom to stand still in 1 these days of swift progress. The once “pro gretsier Democracy” has become a mere fossil uo more like what it once was tlnn a barnacle i; like a dolphin. jyJohn Warner, Esq., of Cambridge, Vt., understood the secret of making property con tiibute to his own and others happiness. Dur ing the last five years before his death he gave away £11,000, in small sums, to poor people. A few years ago he burned up notes and mortga ges, the collection of which would distress the men against whom they were drawn, to tin amount of about £20,000. ly A circular has just been issues! by the i Provost Marshal General releasing from the draft skilled mechanics and operutivesemployed in the armories, arsenals and navy y ards of the United States, as long as they remain in the aforesaid service, provided the officer in charge “hall certify that their lalmr as mechanics oz operatives is necessary for the military or naval service. Judging by letters and papers receiv ed from California we infer that the “Pathfind er” has few friends left in the Golden State. Judge Dwindle of the Superior Court of San Francisco, and Gov. Lowe, have both recently made speeches in that city in which disclosure arc made in relation to Gen. F's standing in that state by no means complimentary-. We might feel called upon to republish them were there any necessity for it, hut as the General has no party in this state and probably will not have friends enough even to au electoral ticket, it would be a needless work to publish a word adverse to him. We shall preserve the documents for future use if deemed necessary. BY TELEGRAPH -TO THJt KVOiAti PAPERS. -——~ Movements of ituerriilns in Missouri. St. Iaicis, Mo., July 28. Tlie guerrillas burueil the railroad property at Sbelbiua and Lakemaii,on the Hannibal A St. Joseph Railroad yesterday. They des troyed all the block bouses, water tanks, aud the btidge at Salt River, robbed the citizens, aud plundered the stores of both friend and foe alike. The baud numbered eighty. Two hundred armed men went west from Hannibal yesterday, aud were at Salt River Bridge yesterday evening. The road is now ; clear of Interruption except at th • burned ' bridge. Gen. Fisk to-day ordered an assessment on ! the disloyalists in Albany aud Monroe Coun ties, sullicient to cover all damages to the railroad and loyal people. It will be collect ed. The same rule will be emorced on all lines iu that district. Gen. Fisk has received authority ao recruit four regimeuts for one year. A large force left St. Joseph to-day by order of Col. Davis for below. Every bridge on the Hanuibal Railroad Is guarded. Gen. Fisk’s militia are doing thor ough work. Every bush patch in Platte, Clay, Ray and other rebellious counties Is being vig orously searched lor bushwhackers. Tborntou i* said to have disbanded bis men, telling them it was impossible to cros- tbe Missouri River, and that as the Federal forces arc closing in around them, they would be destroyed if kept together. No large bands have been heard of for several days, which gives color to this statement. I.atest from the front — Movements of Rebel Troop*. Washington, July 28. The mail steamer Johu Brooks arrived here this morning from City Poiut, which place she left yesterday morning at ten o’clock. At that hour all was quiet iu front of Peters burg, but on Tuesday afternoon a movement of the rebels was discovered, which, although not Hilly developed, indicated that they were attempting to tiauk Gen. Rutier’s position on the right, or were endeavoring to gain Harri son’s Lauding for the purpose of gettiug in his rear. Tue Star learns that a proper disposition of troops was immediately made to cheek them, and Had out their inteulion. Artillery tiring commenced at Point of Rocks early Tuesday evening, and continued all night. Our infantry, batteries and gun boats were said to be engaged, but most of the fbiug was doubtless done by the gunboats, which were shelliug the banks of the river.— Fighting was also going on near Bermuda Hundreds, and it is expected the re Ik* I s are posted three miles Irom that place. lien, fell)/ I lecufirs M a rtinsbu ry— from Gen.

There is no information that the rebels have crossed into Maryland. The Republican extra says a dispatch from Gen. Hunter to tlie Government, received this morning, says there has been considerable skirmishing across the river wllli the rebels, the latter occupying Falling Waters on the \ irginia side, and our forces occupying Wil liamsport on the Maryland] side, tlie contest being for the river lord. I'p to this morning there had been no evi dence that Early had been reinforced. The allair at Winchester Saturday last iu w hich Col. Mulligan was wounded, was noth ing more than a skirmish, Gen.

The Tribune's dispatch says the Government dispatches state that Atlanta is being gradual ly invested by our troops, who intrench as they progress. Intelligence of a successful result of the cavalry raid on the road leading from Atlanta to Macon is hourly expected. There is no disposition yet on the part ol Gen. Hood to evacuate. It is probable that the city will not ho taken without a severe struggle or by a regular siege. t hr HU! titty, * H. tt. New York, July 2P.
