The death of Mias Catherine Sinclair, the distinguished novel writer, has been annonne* ed. Her last novel, "Modern Flirtatious,” has Just been published by T. B.|l*eterson, &■ Bros., Philadelphia. She was the daugh'tei of Sir John Sinclair, and was born iu Edin burgh in the year 1800. She was early dis tinguished both for literary talent and for be nevolence, and, moving in the first circles of Edinburgh society, she was always attentive to the necessities and feelings of the lowest. Her first publications were two little volumes for children, called “Charlie Seymour," aud “ThejLlvea of the Caisars.” In 1836 her Hr-t novel appeared, entitled “Modern Accom plishments,” followed by “Modern Society.” The popularity of these works is evidenced by the 'act that thirty thousand of them have been aold in England. Since then she has written a number of other and equally successful productions, among which are "Caott Purposes,” “Hill and Valley,” “The Journey of Lite,” “The Buslnesa of Life,” “The Mysterious Marriage,” and “Modern flirtations.” Copperhead Lies. Should auy oue undertake to refute all tl e aUehoods and confute all the inuendoea tbn laily appear hi the copperhead press, he collle it nil a year's work in a single week’s issue ol some of our sinullest and most insigniflcam provincial papers; to say nothing of such wholesale factories as the World, _V< ice, Chi ■ ago Timex an 1 others of equal influence anil ! ireulalien. liul occasionally, iu the exutier mce of their malice, these professional de amera let slip a calumny which can be easily efuted, and the weak points of which they iverlooi—sillier IVjai Igiimcj, or from tie haste with which they invent their vast uuilitudes of canards. The following appeared in the Argtft ol Tuesday. Whether it is original with that ■'eratious sheet, or has been captured bodiiy rom sonic other patriotic and virtuous news paper,we do urn know. It appears as editorial: Thgre is double the number of negro troops i >n theflap roU that there is in the xertice. .rjjlei ni are working their lea.-*d plantations town South with them, ant l ncle Sant oots the bills. Old Abe says it is all right ay acquiescing iu it without a word ol pro est. We have the authority ofpersons who have ieen conversant with the enlistment of ne- ' jroes in the Southwest, for declaring the above o be utterly false. Most effective measures j lave been takeu for separating the uegrnes ; vho work on plantations from the soldiers: j md all the army officers, anxious to increase j he force in the Held, have been particularly vigilant iu carrying out the orders ou (his ' subject. There are very few, indeed scarcely my—negroes on plantations who could be ac epted as recruits. Every drove that comes a from the interior is at llrst carefully culled or the army. Those not fit lor servtce are placed iu catnps or ou plantations. An order 1 ■sued nearly a year ago forbade ei lored sol tiers visiting plantations without military pass s. We defy the Editor of the Argus or any me else to point out asinglecass where a com msaioaed officer is carrying on a plantation, e ther with or without the help of his soldiers. The statement Is absurd on the face ol It. All tarnations are outside our lines or subject to ittack from guerillas. Every officer iouud ut-lde our Hues without orders, and captur 'd, i" dismissed the service without trial ou lis return from captivity. Neither he nor die soldiers are liable to he treated by the re ■els as prisoners of war bat muij he lawfully xhet us spies. Can the Argus point out auy oue who is running this risk ? We may go still further. In the Depart ment of the Uulf plantations leased to the gov •rnment were tabooed to recruiting officer. It wt s thought reasonable that those who had invested their capital in atocking plantations and buying laborers should not he liable to I uve their nanus taken suddenly away while raiaiug a crop. Recruiting ollicers were ther bre forbidden to go to plautations. Recent ly however, under the exigencies of the service. | (} 'iieial Canby hn* ordered recruit* to be token from the plantations. Does this look ike favoriug speculators at the expente ol che government? As we have slid it is a profitless task to fer rjt out aud expose ail the lies o! the copper h -ad press. The re^iUliou would uot louclt them. They would never acknowledge th< ir error, on the contrary we should find our selves in the condition of Hercules when hi* underlook to dispose of Hydra. No sooner Ind he cut otf one head than lAo sprang in - nedi ttely from thu stump. When however, as in this instance, wo can without much i ouble cut dwon a falsehood and brand it it may uot ba a waste of lime to do so. The Copperhead Programme. “Peace" is evidently to lie made the watch *ord of the copjterbeads in ttie approaching cunpaign. True, the intelligent ones know t toy can have no peace except upon the ba«i* „ » oiTWrd t/ulon or m arrmrttte sutnmasirn 11 the most exacting demands of the rebels, bit what care they for this? Such knowl e Igo they will keep to themselves till they cau h md wiuk the masses into subordination to tdeir treasonable purposes. The programme ot the McClellan party in I Vew York, it is said, contemplates the statu* | lno on slavery, aud the assumption of the | c nfederale debt, with payment lor all coi.ti - [ c ited u-liel property, aud restoration of all figitire slaves, who, by the fortunes of war, hive found themselves freed from their own e s. Of course the gallant fellows who, cloth e I in the utiilorm of a federal soldier, have bsen fighting our battles, are to be returned t> the plantation, there to labor beneath the lull of the oppressor. This is ci pithead justice; copperhead hu manity, aud this is the basis on which peace it. 11 be solicited from men who stand w i.h their taggers aimed at the heart of the nation.— We have no fear that such a result will he se c ired. The people are too iuteiligeut to he h imliugged by such a sham, aud too patriot ic to consent to such au arrangement, were t possible to secure for it ths couseut of the rebel authorities. The only fear is that honest and patriotic nen may be misled by a misapprehension ui i-tual facts. Attempts are made to iinpsta tpon them lai-hoods for truth, and that, too. if the most baseless character. And it is not t little surprising that papers usually regarded | is respectable will lend themselves to such uksn tiftft*. TaLtp fnr PYumnln tins I'linmio,. , laragrapii from the Newbury port Herald, rc | iVrring to the l.e >d ol the rebel government: When he proposed to speak to ns directly, e> he did through Alexander 11. Stephens, Vice President ol the Conlederale States, or ihrougl, messengers claiming some authority, vhy not give them audience ? Why not let them speak? Why, after we have slammed ne door iu their laces without listening to a vord, turn round and say, '‘they will make no peace that is honorable to ue.’’ The Herald should blush to prostitute its otherwise clean columns to so loul a purpose as that of imposing a mischievous lalsehood ipon its readers. When A. H. Stephens pro-I posed to come to Washington his instructions from Richmond, afterwards published, stated ■o V ruin, to vij'tutt peremptorily ail nego'.ia tions with Mr. Lincoln unless Jefferson Davis I should he acknowledged as ms xtjVAI. in i ali, liKsPECrs! Would the Ilei aid so debase i the constitutional President of the United I States as to makt him acknowledge the per ; •ect equality with himself of a rebel and trai- ! tor worthy of a halter?

Tite Case Well Stated.

This is the season of Conventions, and they ire multiplying upon us w ith marvellous ra polity. The “school” of them held at Bangoi recently, though differing somewhat to tin eye, will yet, on close examination, be found to have an astonishing resemblance to rail other. They are plain!)' specimens of the tame genus. The resolutions passed by the Slate Convention are remarkable as embody ing no principle except tiie "needy knife-grind , r" one ol recommending tbem-elves for pow er. From the mass of gliltering generalities, atnl patriotic protestation* which, after many tierce throe*, the Convention succeed* d ii bringing forth, we can extract but this ot e genuine and unaffected idea. Of the sincerity sod genuineness of this plank in their plat form, there cau be no reasonable doubt. A1 bey ond is false and hollow as the claim of this assemblage of worn out party hacks of every poliiical stripe to represent tin- position and principles of the Democracy of Maine. The ' d sirict and county conventions have the mer it of being more cu'spokeu. They avow the rebel doctrine ol “State rights” which in volves the right <>l see*-.-ion. deny the consti tutionality of the, v r, and the right to “co erce a sovereign S ate,” thus deHberatelj planting themselv* < ou Jell' Davis' ground,and making that uow uu open which has from tin I tint been a virtual alliance with the author* ! of the rebellion. But this boldness is just what we like to sec. Wo are all tired of tin “Good Lord,” “Good Devil” utterances of this party in the mouths which are gone. To say nothiugof the present being the more respec table because the bolder course, it lias the ad- , ditioual advantage of being understood by the ; dullest. , Other States besides Maine are going exten sively into this busiuees of conventions. A body claiming to represent the democracy o I.liuois,have recently held a meeting at Peoria, where they passed a series of resolutions -trongly r<seml>ling some of tljesc of Banco?, and embodying iu addition the monstrous doc trine that the administration of Mr. Lincoli haviug “denied to sovereign States all consti tutional i ights hat thereby absolreel them front 1 all allegiances." Iu Syracuse, the other day. the peace democracy of Mew York held a con venlion which was addressed by Vallaudig liatn an*l Fernando Wood, and in which they called upon the people to obtain a suspension ol hostilities, enioiued on the Chicago Con vention to nominate peace candidal*s, tie nounced the war as waged against the rights of the South, and especially thanked those who have stood up for these principles and declared for peace, promising that “llteir ser vices shall be rewarded when Ihc tlemocralie party shall be reinvested with the reins of e/oaernment.” In other words, if these north ern traitor# will but lend their aid to the southern rebels in destroying the best consti tutional government under the sun, they shall have their reward in the rich “loot" w hich wii! abound when that iair fabric lies in ru ins! I •, is manifest that the resolutions of these meetings though they may differ in the more or less ambiguous statement of their princi ples, (!) do really sound thimine key. If any one of them isequivaient to six, each of tlx othera is expressible by. hall a dozen. They ail alike demand an immediate #u#pcnsion ot hostilities as a preliminary to yielding to the rebels ail they have ever claimed. They all denounce the government but never the re ; iiellion. But most especially there is dtaceru able through all their utterances, despite the greater or less degree of verbiage, in which i they have chosen to envelope it. the Calhoun doctrine ol State rights, the theory that, it spite ol mathematics, the whole is not gteaten , than any of its part#,but that each of the part* is greater than the whole, it is at la-t appa rent that the pseudo democracy of to-day de Isi#"its i• are right ami the government is wrong, that f the Union is but a rope of sand wriilcli any State may break at wilt, that the majority ! have not the right to rule since the most 1n significant minority may at any time set it* will at defiance, and the government of tin I United State# is destitute of the very first ot 1 human rights, the right of self-protection. For eighty year* that government, combin ing the fullest representation with a rtioig central power, has enjoyed an unexampled prosperity ; ami we now see it brought almost to the verge of ruin by an attempt to exchange this integral character which 1ms been the source of its greatness fer a mere compact at will, which would reduce it from a mighty na tion to a mere horde of petty Stales,each pow - erless to command ior itself either safety ot respect. If it were possible to conceive ol such a thing as an honest paliiot among these d -mocratic leaders, we might wonder at bis blindness in fulling to read such a lessou ss this. It is certain that it# teachings have not been lost upou the people of other countries. Two great and powerful nationalities, the one i ■ the new the oilier in the old world, reading in these thing" the value of union, are seek in : to secure for themselves the very thing theve men aie so anxious to throw away, n ime!y. a strong central government. Our Canadian neighbors, tired of division# ana .ptarrel#, arc aiming to gather up those scat tered elements ot strength now lying waste in d.*conteuted provinces, and uniting them un der ah integral yet free and representative government, to lift themselves from the #tate Canadian union is probably a thing decreed, and Cauadiati must follow in lime, when the Uuited Slates will have on her northern borders a ns', ion kindred in origin, language and customs, rivalling her iu the friendly race of development and civilization, aud two closely connected with her by a com munity of pursuits and interests to make such near neighborhood other, than productive ol mutual good. In the old world the case of Germany affords a (Hiking example of the value ol institutions resembling our own.— 1 he German Empire, bound In a close consti tutional union, held for tommies the first auk iu Europe, and was able to give the law to all Christendom. Iu an evil hour she gave up thls-etrongdentral government, the Em- . pire was suffered to fall iu pieces, and a weak- j ly held Confederation, just such a thing as these State rights fellows would pursuade us to su!>slitute for the glorious Union of our fathers, took its place. The result was what might have been anticipated. Germany as a nation declined iu power and greatness, indi vidual States crew strong at the expense of the, whole of the weaker onrs, and a genetal retrogression was apparent. Kitty years ex perience of the beauties of this new order of things, has seived to convince the Germans of the immense advantages id the old system, aud a Mr mg movement is now iu progress to restore the old el c o al empire, and give baek Gent a ty to her place among the nations. If it were possible for the American of in telligence aud patriotism to have any doubt* on this question, it would seem as If two such notable instances as these must at least enable him to sec what view the clear sighted men of other countries at e taking of the matter.

Gen. Shepley Vindicated. A correspondent of the W'dlcAmon and I Reflector of (Jo*1011! under the head of “Per eculiug Freedinen," has recently brought se rious charges sgaiust Geu. Shepley to the ef fect that ho broke up a* school for colored children, who occupied a room which was al j -o used for public worship, in Portsmouth, Va., on the pretense that it was needed or a hospital; tlml this was the only loyal church in the city, while all arouud it, and much more conveniently situated, were secesh churches of. various denominations, which might, have been used for this purpose; anil that in other respects the freedmen were ill reated by Geu. Sjiteplcy. Aud the corres pondent closes his couimunicattbn by suggest- , mg that liis “clerical friends cannot put a naif hour to a better use than in writing a etter to the President .or Secretary Stanton on the subject.’" The following reply to these charges ap [leius in a sulrsetiueul mtinher of the H atch man over the signature of “E. S.," and is un doubtedly from the pen cf Judge Shepley of j this city w ho speaks pb authority: “The statements which have been made in ihe II "tchman and Reflector ol July gSth, | respecting the use of tne baptist church in Portsmouth, Va., lor d hospital,arc ettoncous. j So member of tne church winch worshipped mere has been known to complain. It was necessarily taken for the relict of wound, d colored soldiers. The Hotels and public halls mere had been previously used lor hospitals. tVoutided soldiers wore constantly arriving trout the front. The day before that church was taken a telegram was received by the , surgeon that three hundred more were on j heir way. More room was necessary. The surgeon in charge applied for the baptist church; and the provost marshal also urged us occupation us Ireing nearest to the hospital, aud best adapted to the purpose. Geu. iihep ,ey, before consenting to its occupation, per sonally inspected ibe hospitals, and the build ings which c. uld be talo n, and fonDd that Mete were apoul fourteen hundred patients .o be provided lor, wfnlc the number of.medi cs! and other attendants had Item provided for rtioiit four hundri d only. This church could easily he connected with the principal hos pital. It was neater than the other churches, ml much better adapted to hospital purpose.-; hail a yard not exposed to the street/or nee is sary purposes, w men the other churches exam men bad not. Neither the surgeon who ap ,.l.ed for it, tit ■ military olllcers who recoin- [ mended it as the most suitable, nor Gen. Shepley, who permitted them to take it for • he immediate reliei of tick and wounded freedmen aud soldiers, ltarl the slightest reler- , ence to or thought of anything but its tupe.- , rior Illness for the purpose. The other churches must he taken when needed, if no other building is provid. d for the relief of -uttering soldiers. Rev. Mr. tjtockliridge, a chaplain in the navy, charges Geu. Shepley with dcpiiving colored children of their school. Did he not well know that no schools are there kept open in July and August? riic school would have been closed in a few days, ns the other colored schools Lave been, lor the usual summer vacation. During this taken of all the colored children in that military district, preparatory to a more com plete system of education for them all.” In addition to the statement of Judge Sltepley, the editors of the U'utefiman ap pt nd the follow ing reinatks: ‘•We have received from another accredited •ource—a surgeon in the Portsmouth hospi tal—j communication which covers substan tially the fame gr >und of the above, showing that the Initiative in the action complained of was not taken by Gen. Shepley, and further most t'ullv exonerating that officer from blame. Our correspondent, according to these two witnesses, mmt have written his article under a misapprehension of the facts in the case.” Difference of Application It makes all tbo difference in the wot Id i whether my bull baa goit d your ox, or your hull has gored my ox. In both cases indeed, i bull gores end an ox is gored; but the real, essential, vital fact is of no sort of conse quence; the whole matter binges upon two ittle words—little in tbcmstlves, aud often in«s in their application—namely, inruns aud I tuum! in Tpnai »nr*rt mim tun t" jm* „ .... | respondent of the Xew York Ttibnne: “The Daily Ketcn says: ‘We area 'ter all circumstances fer jeate.’ Are you?

Von know von would not. And yet yeti will not pic tend that the slaveholders bail half the Justifi cation for revolt that thejslavi s have.” Does not the thing lie in a nutshell?

A comsp mdent of a lea ling New York p; - per, who accompanied the Congressional, Ex cursion Party, in a letter trout Bath describ ing the trip from this city to that, says: “Passing out of Finland llnrlior through Whltehrml l‘a*mye, m opportunity *a*!ti forded of beholding the peculiar formation of | the rocks at this point. From one point the i profile of a man's face was plainly v Bible; near er, the tucks presented the prollle of a hoy’s lace, and when in front, of them a full view of a iiian’s lace was seen.” Again: “Passing Pond Blind Light, the flutter lay of white handkerchiefs attracted attention, anil lit - fri mdiy salutations of the ladies there assembled were acknowledge!? by dipping the colors and uu unearthly sehreech of the whis tle.’’ The ro notice is taken out of the tlrst pira graph ol the above by the simple statement that the Cutter did not go out through Whitehead Passage, but down the regular 6hip channel, and of course uo “peculiar formation,” no “man’s lice,” uot even “the prollle of a boy’s lace” was seen at all at all! In relation to the second paragraph it is suf ficient to remark that Pond Bland is a mere huge rock, with only the Light Keeper’s hut I upon it, and that not so much as a night cap was visible, as the Cutter passed, to show that crinoline had there an abiding place.
