Congressional Excursion—Notes by the Way. U. S. Steam Cutter Mahoning, ( August 13,1864. jf My last, truth to tell, was dated at a very early hour in the morning, aud alluded to a few things in the past lease, which, at the time of writing, had not actually transpired A word, tberelore, to finish up what was necessarily left very imperfect. 1 alluded to the reception of the committee aud their in viled guests at Colu nbian Hall in t'te evening, by the citizeue of Bath. It was really one ol the pleasantest episode* of the season. The Hall was beautifully decorated, and the beauty aud grace of the city were well represented. There was no danciug it is true; there were no public speeches; but for two or three hours the social iuterchanges, the friendly greetings, the pleasant introductions, the promenading with the ladies and other social divertisemenu n.s..n .11 «(,.* ...,U k. A ...I _* fail to make tbe many distinguished stranger? feel that though lo tbe Northeast State, they were not “out in the cold.” Refreshments, got up at short notice, but in great variety and of excellent quality, were served to the company, and the “short hours" were found approaching beiore many ol the company were aware ol it. From Bath it was originally proposed to make a short detour, by rail, for the purpose of visiting the Stale Capital, that tbe gentle men of the Committee might be presented to 1 and welcomed by the Governor, hut I am in- ' formed, for some reason not understood by . the public, though it uoubtless is by the Com- . mittee, the Governor tiguifled that it_would i not be convenient to receive a visit at the present juncture, wheu oue of their hotels, is i closed for repairs, and two of the distinguish ed citizens of the place, Messrs. Morrill and Blaine, are absent. Tbe Mahoning left Bath, cheered by her wann-heart-d people, at balf-past seven, and as she tails down the Kennebec and before entering upon deep water where I am expect ing “Old Neptune" to be rather exacting in hi* demands, I will mention the names of some of the gentlemen who made up the par ty. First, o( ibe official committee, Of seven members live are present, to wit: Rice of Me., (cliairmiu,| Patterson of N. H„ Alley of M iss., Hale of Pa., and H idford of N. Y. The absence of Mr. Cox of Ohio, and Mr. Diggs of Mich., is frequently referred to with re' gret. Tbe-following member* of Congress are on board, not members of the committee: Sena tor Hale of N. H., and Representatives Smith era of Del., Perham ol Me., Ames and Rice of Mass., Perry ol N. Y., Rollins of N. H., Mor rill and Woodbridge of Vt., and Jenckes of B.I. The following gentlemen are also on board : Mr. Hilyard of the Coast Survey, Washing ton, Mr. Johnson, Civil Engineer, of Middle town,Ct.,Mr. Bills of N. Y., Mr. Dayof Newark, N. J., ofludia Rubber reputation, Emery of Boston, C. C. Coffin, E<q , (-‘Carleton”) of Mass., and Mr. Halstead of N. J. Several of the leading papers of other States are repre sented by reporters, for instance, the Tribune, Herald, Journal of Commerce and Evening Post of New York; the Advertiser, Traveller and Post of Boston, and tbe Chronicle of Portsmouth. Of the papers of this Stale I find none represented except the Press of your city, and the Time* of Houlton. This It a little surprising, Inasmuch as tickets were sent to all the daily papers of the State in ample season, and but for the limited accommo dations on board, I am told the weekly press of the State would have been Included In the In vitation. The omission was suggested by no exclusive spirit, but simply by the supposed necessities of the case. There Is no necessity for any one of the party to sutler—except from sea sickucss— “without benefit of clergy,” for this honored and honorable profession Is ably represented by Hev. Messrs. Uallard of Brunswick, Che ney of Lewiston, Burgess ot Portland, Has kell of Boston, and Haskins of Cambridge. Judge Bourne of Kennebuuk, and Johu A. Poor, Esq.,—who joined the party at Balli,— will see that the historical interests of the points visited do not suffer, while Mr. Brown, the talented young ailist, of your city, Is pre pared—sketch-book iu hand—to furnish the illustrations at short notice. Senator Banks of Biddeford, ex-Senator Woods of Bangor, formerly of Gardiner, and Mayor Ham of Lewiston, will have an eye to the cioil ser vice, to see that it is not overridden, by shoulder-straps aud gilt lace. Messrs. Bed low aud Berry of your city, are here, the former to keep the telegraph wires in good order, aud the latter to see that the Associa tion Press suffers no neglect. Collector Washburn of your port joined the party at Bath, and upon him must devolve the duly ut tilling the place made vacant by ibe sudden departure of ex-Gov. Goodwin, ol X. H., who left for home this morning, while President Cheney, of Bales College, must take the place of President Wood, suddenly called away on business. There are only two ladies on board, the wives of Mr. Hale, of Pa., and Mr. Halstead, of X. J. Mr. Seward, a brother of the Secretary, of X. Y., accompa nied the party to Bath, but there left it on his return. There Is a rumor that a small crinoline par ty Irom your city, ol the llrst circle, will at Bangor test the gallantry of the committee by soliciting the pleasure of juiuiug the party, and if so, I predict for criuoline an easy victo ry to enjoy alt the comforts of the trip, sea sickness not excluded. The above is hastily written as we glide down the smooth waters of the Kennebec, but the odor of the salt briue, borne on the strong southerly breeze, is suggestive of a crisis that 1 contemplate with anything but pleasure. Opposite Fort Popham a boat with the Com mittee puts off for the shore, that they may hastily lake a view of that strong case-mated work, which, when completed aud mouuted, will effectually close the Kennebec to all in truders. The boat returns and on we go. Soon the vessel gently rolls and pitches, converts lion becomes hushed, gentlemen are seized with a remarkable inclination to recline upon their backs, and pale countenances become de cidedly contagous. O that four hours of living death, in which one becomes resigned to auy thing except his actual condition! But I will not attempt des cription. The sensation must be experienced to be appreciated. This 1 am sure of, that more than one siuner on board our crall became reconciled to (death, sharks aud rebel priva teers, aud wouldn’t have given the flip of a Bungtowu copper to slave off auy calamity except that one awful, sickening, deadly, nau seating sensation of turning iuside out, or of rolling down hiil beaded up io a barrel, lullnite dishonor to the man that invented sea-slckuess. aud were he still living would deserve to hate his neck wrung for the invention. But White Head is reached, the Mahoniug, comes under the lea of the Muscle Ridges, and as smooth water only is now ahead, the company gradually regain their upright posi tions, aud the petty annoyance ol the sea-god's exaciious—the meanest of all the gods—fades from memory as the nausea gradually wears away. People talk of the "poetry of'heoceau”! Fudge! Tuc oceau is a humbug to all hut the web-footed, aud he who sighs for ' A Ilfs on the oeean wave, A tiume ou the rolling deep" is a shallow-pate or—he never wat tea-tick; that’s all. Before reaching White Head the “Old Man” aid “Old Woman”—two dangerous rocks— are passed, aud “the buoy (pronounced boy) they have got between them," as one of the wags facetiously remarked. “Owl’s Head”— the body of which has been long sought after by the Bangor Antiquarian Society, in a bottle probably—is reached, and the good steamer sweeps around gracefully into R ickland har bor, where a landing is effected, and the whole company proceed direct to the hospitable man sion of Hon. 8. C. Fessenden, brother of our honored Secretary of the Treasury, to partake of hot coffee and a bountiful collation. As 1 shall say a word of Rockland and the trip thence to Bangor in my next, I stop here with the simple remark, that the Mahoning parted from the wharf at B. at 5 o'clock, skirted along the beautiful shore of Penobscot Bay, entered the river of the same name in the teeth of a strong ebb tide, but made the run, sixty mlles( in six hours, arriviug at tne Queen City of the Eistat 11 P. M., was welcomed by salvos ol c union on shore, came along side of the Ka tahdin steamer, to which she made fast, aud where the comp my was met by the Bangor committee who hud made ample provision for their entarlaiument. SrtTffwnrcK. The Argus aud Jeff- Davis. Our cotemporary devotes two of his columns to Jetf. Davis, peace, aud an editorial from the Richmond Sentinel, a uewspaper claimed to be the organ of the rebel President. The object of these loug articles Is to show that peace Is within our reach, but we confess we can't see much hope of peace unless our Gov erument will lay down its arms, creep on its belly, humbly ask Jeff. Davis to give us the boon, agree to a dissolution of the Union and a separate aud independent conluderacy for Southern rebels. By pursuing such a course we have no doubt we could have peace iu short order. The Argus very readily accepts without auy qualification what Jeff. Davis said to Gil more. “ We are not fighting for slavery.” Our neighbor rolls this as a sweet morsel under his tongue, and bases bis argument upon it to prove that negro slavery was not the cause ol the rebellion. To prove that, even to the sat isfaction of the readers of the Argus, is an up hill business, and It will requlro uiore ingenu ity, tact aud taleut liiau this editor has yet de veloped to make the people believe auy such nonsense. That this war was waged against the Gov ernment for the express purpose of sustaining negro slavery and building up a slave aristoc racy, there can be no reasonable doubt iu any intelligent mind of this country or Europe. That questiou was settled loug ago, aud no words which Jeff. Davis can now utter will disturb that well settled opiuiou. It is somewhat amusing that the Argus ac cepts this phrase of the arch traitor as gospel truth without the least qualification, ai.d swal lows it down with much gusto, while the oth er portion ol the conversation which Jetf. had with Gilmore at the same interview, must be received with mauy grains of allowance, and greatly qualified to suit copperhead purposes. Now such a course of reasoning makes mince meat of the rules of construction which the Argus adopts lu one case and not in the other. The plain object ot all this is to smooth over and construe away tbe force of the other state, meats made to Gilmore ou the same occasion. But this special pleadiug will pass for what it is worth, and the people will not he deceived by it. Now let us make a record of the other say ings of Jeff. Davis which were it ade to Gil more. Jeff, says, “This war must go on till the last of this generatlou falls In his tracks, and his chiidreo sieze bis musket aud fight our battles, unless you acknowledge our right to self-government. We are lighting for independence, and that or extermination j tee will hate ” Can language be plainer than this? Does this traitor to his country mince ! the matter, and show any signs of repent j ance? Does he intimate anything like peace, except on the condition that we acknowledge i their right to telf government/ And what is the fair and legitimate meaning of self-gov ernment? What is the meaning of indeptnd | ence for which the rebels aie fighting? j Now it seems to us that the meaning of these words are exceedingly plain. Can these traitors enjoy self-government, independence, I in any way short of a separate and distinct i confederacy? No reasonable man can be at a loss lor an auswcr to these questions. The i question is as plain as the nose on the Argus ] man's face. When a state enters the Union it must necessarily give up some of the privi | liges, immunities and rights which It could exercise out of the Union. The Uniou ol ' the Stales has rights as well as individual | states, and entire self-government and iude i pendeuce cannot be exercised or enjoyed by I a state when in the Uniou. Some state ; rights must lie given up in exchange for oth ' era which a slate out of the Union could not have the benefit of. These principles are all very plaiu and easi ly understood, and yet the Argus has mud died the subject, nud endeavored to convince its readers that Jelf. Davis is ail right. Very seldom indeed does this journal call him a traitor. The whole truth is, these leading j rebels began this war for the purpose ol , breaking up the Union, and establishing a separate confederacy—an aristocracy founded i on negro slavery—and “on that line-' they ' have fought and will continue to fight. It ii idle lor any man or any journal to dispute the fact, for it Is recorded on every page o this war's history. it is too late in me cay to ignore or uis pute these important facts, aud until the reb ! els repent aud say in so many words that they are williug to come hack Into the Union, wt must lie governed by the lessons this rebel | lion has already taught us. It is well knowt j to all in this country, aud iu Europe that out j government has always been ready and wil ; ling to listen to overtures of peace when such overtures came through a proper channel Common sense aud comrnou justice require that a rebel in arms against his government must first lay down his arms aud ask ftl peace. It is no part of the government’s du i ty to humble ilseil and ask the armed rebels i for terms of peace. The distinction is as plaiu as a pike-stall', aud ail the Copperheads i in the North or rebels in the South cannot hide it from the people. • Tile Argus says the rebel leaders are ready ] to negotiate, but where is the evidence, at.d I what are the terms? We sav the sine qua t u0 is Southern independence and consequent j ly a disoiution of the Union. Give us some j evidence, some sign of rebel repentauce. Let Jeff. Davis and his cabinet make their propo sitions fur peace if they desire peace. Let them come iu no questionable shape, but open aud above board, even if the overtures involve I some humiliation on the part of the rebels as tbey necessarily must. It is for the guilty to humble themselves aud not for our govern ment which has never wrouged them la a sin gle instance. When overtures comt from such a source aud in such a shape, tbey will be listened to. And the Argus knows it as well as we do. Then why this continual harp Iing on peace ? Why don’t our neighbors come out fair and square an 1 state the facts as they appeir on record ? If this were done the at mosphere would be cleared of much of the | smoke that darkens it, and the eyes of the Ar ; gus Itself might see more clearly than they ! seem to now. Jetf Davis and his Cabinet, the Confederate Congress and the rebel leaders generally, havt put themselves on record, and that record shows conclusively that they began the wai against the United States lor a separate and independent confederacy, and to eslablist I more drmly the peculial institution of humau | bondage, and they are still prosecuting the I war for the same unholy purposes. The rebel leaders hate the Old Flag of the Uulon—thej I trample it under their feet and spit upon it ! R-construction they repudiate, the Yankee* they despise aud speak of them contemptous ly, free labor doea not set well on their aris tocratic stomachs, and they look upon north era “mudsills” with horror and contempt Such is the character of the leaders o( tbit wicked rebellion, and shall our government get down bn iu knees and sue for peace'. | God aud Humanity forbid! We trust tht i “gorgeous ensign ofour republic, now honor ed aud known throughout the earth" will no1 be thus disgraced. We intended to make some comments ot the editorial of the Richmond Sentinel which I the Argus hugs so closely to iu bosom, but ai | this article is longer than we intended, tvt , shall endeavor to place before our leaden our opinion of that rebel organ aud the objec' of that editorial at this important junctun of political affairs. The text is a good ont and we will not let it pass without comment. Letter from & Maine Soldier. Camp shah Pbtkhsbubg, Va., I July 31,1804. ( “We had the saddest day yesterday, I evei saw. We were called up at half past twe o'clock A. M., and lormcd in line of battle ai three. We filed our left in trout, and march e I down to within three hundred yards of tht rebel Fort which wc had mined. Halted in s dn..n aaSI.rnoii Atlt Until lilts avitl/isi/in IaaL i p ace, which was terrific. There were six j tons of powder, hurried thirty feet undei ; ground, directly under the Fort, which ex : p'oded at half past four A. M , when we start j e 1 for the rebels aud went directly into the remains of the Fort. At the moment the Fori j blew up, we had fllty pieces of artillery open on them directly over us. The air was sc j thick that I could not see three feet ahead Tae ruins of the Fort, 1 cannot describe. My I heart sickens at the thought. The huge mat ! ses of earth thrown all the way, from six to ten rods, men thrown almost to our lines, or | from the Fort twenty or thirty rods, and many of them buried alive. Camion anil gun-car riages thrown in all directions, together with the scene in-ide, where those two regiments met t'leir fate, baffles description. Tberebeli opened on us right and left, soon as they could gather their senses. Our brigade made the charge,so that we were some of the first ones in the Fort. Many a poor fellow gave up his life, for it was a perfect torrent of shot and shell. Going over the parapet, we found a hole in the earth about thirty feet deep, large enough to hold from four to silt thousand men, packed full of our meu perfectly safe, aud tl.e men kuew it was almost certain death to get up on to the parapet. But soou Col. Went worth with a lew others went ahead and oui brigade fallowed. There is where the Col, I got his wound. When we got in our regi i meat was one of the first. There were but i two colors that 1 saw planted there, the 31st j aud the 32,1 Maine. We could find no one to j hold the colors, so Lieut. Chase mounted the ; Fort aud held the colors when no other one would, tie was brave, almost to rashness. Alter daring to leave the flag wilbout bolding it he called to the men to load their guns aud pas9 them to him. And he would stand and take deliberate aim, and he continued to tire as long as it was any use, and then stepped i back into the pit, and was soon shot in his head. The first thing he said, was lake me to Capt. Hammond. They culled me to him and j ho would not. consent for ine to leave him, for he thought he should soon die; and we all i thought he would, for he bled very badly. There was every probability that we should all be killed if we left the pit, but we soon started with him, myself, the Orderly sergeant and one from another company. It was so hot that wo were almost exhausted, as we had i to carry him stooping, so that we should not get our heads shot off. Got almost to our camp before we got any help. When we got hi in on the ambulance I broke down, I I could not stand.” BY TELEGRAPH --TO THE UVEXlllfe PAPEltH. From Mobile—Official Report of Admiral Farraf/ut. Washington, Aug. 13. The following dispatches have beeivreceiv I ed hy the Navy Department: Flag Ship Hartford, I Mobile Bay, Aug, 5. ( | Sir:—1 have the honor to report to the De partment that this morning I entered Mobile j Bay, passing between Forts Morgan and Gaines, encountering the rebel rain Tennessee | aud gunboats of the enemy, viz., the Selma, | Morgan aud Gaines. The atlackiug fleet was underweigh by 3 4o A. M., in the loliowiug order: The Brooklyn, with the Octoroon on her port side; the Uartlord, with the Metacouict, the Kich '.uotid, with the l’ort ltoyal, the Luckawana, with the Seminole, the Monongahela with the Tecumseh, the Ossipee with the Itasca, aud ! the Oneida with the Galena, on the starboard j of the fleet, was the proper position of the monitors or irou-clads. The wind was light from the south-west, and the sky was cloudy with very little sun. Fort Morgan opened upon us at ten minutes past seven o'clock, aud soon alter this the ac tion became lively. As we steamed up the maiu ship channel there was some difficulty ahead, and the Hart i ford passed on ahead of the Brooklyn. At 7 40 the monitor Tecumseh was struck by a torpedo aud sunk, going down with all the of ficers aud crew, with the exception of the pi lot and eight or ten men, who were saved by a boat I sent from the Mctacomet, which was alongside me. lne Hartford had passed tire forts before 8 o'clock, aud tlndiug myself raked by the rebel gunboats, I ordered the Metacoinet to cast oil aud go in pursuit of them, one of which, the Selma, she succeeded in capturing. All the vessels had passed the lorts by 8 30, uui iin. i c’uvi i am a ruiicoacu ajiwairin* ly uuujured in our rear. A signal was at once made to all the fleet to turn again and at tack the ram, not only with guns, but orders to ruu her down at lull speed. The Mottonga hela was the first that struck her, ami though she may have injured her badly, yet she did not succeed in disabling her. The Lackawa ua also struck her, hut ineffectually. The flag ship gave her a severe shock with her bow, aud as she passed poured into her a whole port broadside ol solid 11 inch shot aud 1:1 pounds of powder, at a distance of not more than twelve feet. The iron cads were closing up on her, aud the iJartlord aud the rest of the i fleet were bearing down upon her, when at 10 A. M. she surrendered. The rest of the rebel fleet, viz., the Morgau and Gaines succeeded in getting back under the protection ol Fort Morgan. This terminated the action of the day. Admiral Iinchanan sent me his sword, being I himself badly wounded with a compound frac | turn of the 'eg. which it is supposed will have to be amputated. 1 Having liad many of my men wounded and the surgeon of the Tennessee being desirous to have Buchanan removed to a hospital, 1 sent a flag of truce to the commanding olllcer of Fort Morgan, Brig. Gen. Page, to see il be would allow the wounded of the fleet, as well as their own, to be taken to Pensacola, where they would be taken better care of than here. I would send out one of our vessels, provided she would be permitted to return, bringing back nothing she did not take out. G -n. Page consented, and the Metacomet was dispatched. On the rebel ram Teuuessee were captured twenty officers aud 170 men. On the Selma 1 were taken uinety officers and men. Very respectfully, D. G. Kami,volt, Rear Admiral Commanding. From the Army tie fore Itiehmoml. Headquarters Army Potomac, i Aug M. j Gen. Burnside was relieved of his commaud last evening. His division tfficers and a uuut | iter of his triends were preseut to bid him larewell. Gun. Wilcox is in temporary com ! maiid of the corps. It was reported that the enemy was moving j toward our ielt, with the intention of making a flank attack early this morning, but as them has been no demonstration up to this time, 7 1 A. M , the report is believed to be unfouud j ed. Everythiug at the headquarters is perfectly j quiet. Considerable flriug has been kept up all night on the centre aud right. Yesterday morning about daylight, heavy firiug was heatd in the direction of James river for about two hours. It was reported that there had been an attack by some rebels on a working patty of Gen. Butler's, who are cutting a canal across a small peuinsuia on tbe James river. About a dozen deserters came in yesterday, two of wi otn were cavalry men, with all their accoutrements.

She was tired into on the alter noon of the 10th, at Guineas Landing by masked batteries of six 12-puuudeis. Teere is supposed to be a strong lorce ol cav alry posted on the Arkansas shore. Sixty shots aud shells struck the steamer. One ol the latter penetrated the hull and burst iu the bold. The rebels aim poured iu a heavy Are of musketry, riddllug ihe upper works. The Empress had about 500 persons on board, including 200 sick and discharged sol diers, and 56 ladies aud children. Five per sons were killed aud 11 wounded. Captain Malley of the steam- r was killed, his head be ing shot off while telling the pilot never to surrender. The I'irate Tallahaeeee. New York, Aug. 15.

A large force ol Mexicans have cut otl' all supplies from Acapulco, which is occupied by French troops, and the siege of that city lias been raised. It was believed that the French would be obliged to turrt-odtr in consequence ol want ol food. The Mexicans harrass the j French troops night and day, by incessant tir ing itom their batteiiee.

A correspondent of the Bath Times, who is a member of the 10 b Maine regiment, under date of “Near Petersburg” Aug. 8 h, says: The Itfih which left camp near Stfcvensburg with about 500 men, cauuot show to day over | 150 of that number, the otheis being killed, wounded or missing. It has never changed' its position in the Division hut has remained , iu the tlrst Utigade. The men have stood the heat of ll»e summer finely, considering its in tensity, ami very lew are upon the sick list at | present. We are encamped ou the left of the | army, which place we have occupied since the 22d of June with the exception of four days, when we were across the James, near Mal vern Hill at Deep bottom. We left camp at 4 P. M., marched all night, arrived at the | James about daylight, crossed and engaged the enemy, driving them hack two miles, and taking four Hue pieces ol 20 pound Parrott. We returned to Petersburg in season to wit ness the big light upon the JOth of July. We were not engaged in the contest. Capt. J. W. Spauldivg is at present com manding the regiment. He is an excellent commander, possessing ability with coolness. All the men respect and esteem him Capt! D. E. Parsoiis of Co.

There has been no casualties in the regiment since June. That month, we lost heavily in wounded and ! prisoners, by the neglect of other troops not doing their duty.
