I Military Map We sre indebted to J. T.

A nun.bur of "patriotic citizens.” hav- i ing recently addressed Mr. Seward a letter or memorial, calling hi* attention to cer tain "treasonable matter*,” contained in a late letter of Mr. Howe]], the American correspon lent of the London Times news paper, and charging that it was the pur-! pose of the writer to bring the credit of! "thi* (Internment into disrepute in for-' eign countries,” that functionary has ad- ■ dressed the memorialist* an answer, which i i* interesting iu many respects, but par- i tienlarly *o for a notice which is taken of the liberty which should he accorded to j newspaper writers and corrcsjumdenl*. Will it be believed when we state, that j Mr. Secretary Seward has found out at l l:u*t, that ‘error of opinion may safely be ! tolerated when reason is left free to com btit 1” Believe it or not, he has actually j made (he discovery, and what is more to the purpose, Mr. Correspondent Russell is now at full liberty to talk and write until his eye lids will no longer wag. It is cer tainly a safe and sound maxim for all free tlovenuucnts to adopt, and the wonder with us is, that the discovery ha* been postponed so long. Within the past month, qmte a number of newspaper Edi tor* aud Proprietors in thi* country have been arrested and imprisoned and their business broken np for no offence in the world, except this "error of opinion,” which, by this new discovery, has been found to lie altogether harmless. What injustice and outrage might have been pre vented if the dittoseiy bad bten made a month earlier? Besides, is Mr. Seward altogether certain that what he calls "er ror of opin on” i* not after all a difftrenre of opinion and that other people have a fair chance to be right as well as he ? But, perhaps he means to limit the appli cation of ocw maxim to Mr. Russell, who ia a genuine son of the great European Thunderer and a very important person age .generally. But Mr. Russell ha* been charged wifch treason as well as "error of opinion,” yet be has neither been bung D'*r even arrested. At latest accounts, he was chasing the buffaloes on the Western Prairies, no doobt by the connivance of Mr. Seward himself. We cannot serious ly believe, however, that Mr. Seward means to uake’any such invidious distinc tion as the one supposed above—to deny the right to hi* own newspaper country men to canvass the conduct of Govern ment within the bounds of law while he allow* Mr. .Russell to write treason at his leisure. So far as "error of opinion” is concerned, if there is any truth in Mr. Seward’s discovery. it must be truth for the native as well as the foreigner—truth for Howard as well as for Hassell. We arc prepared to believe, therefore, Mr. Jvward intends his maxim for general application, aud we contemplate with infinite pleasure the speedy restora tion to choir home* and business of mary n*e fbl and amiable citizens whose ohitf mi*, fortune appear* to have been to have lived and labored at a lime when "error of opinion” wa a grave oflence agaiu*t the law* or a crime against the Government, which happily ia the catc no lunger. , Tho Memo j The must important military : of the p*U week u tin* capture of Uilok* i too, hr the I'onMentni nml^r jGen.

Doth branches of : the State Legislature arc strongly Cnion, and have, over the veto of Coventor Ma- Ig.ffin, demand*! a prompt withdrawal of | the Confederate forces from the .! of ! Kentucky. Okn. Polk, the (\ nfederate { i command'r, ha* dteliued to acquiesce, | upon the ground that "military necessity land the safety nf Tennesso” demand the I occupation of certain posts in Ken‘ucky ! He, however, agrees to evacuate his pn-s --1 ent position, and leave the State, if tiie Federal* will cm sent to a like observation lof it* declared neutrality. Hut this, we learn, the Federal* have flatly refund to do. and both sides are reported to In* m in ing for the coming conflict. A skirmish i has already taken place between native ! Kentuckians, an 1, we look forward to a i bloody and protracted struggle iu that I State. Picket shooting, “(argot practice” ai.il “grand review*,” by McClellan, tcern to still engross the time of t!;o armies o: the Potomac, at least, we cun h‘rn not*:intr more from them!, though the frequent. m) rapid roar of artillery and Mnall anus heard in the vicinity of \Wliington. would indicate that something more occurs than the Government is db-posed to make public. G *n. Juhnston is reported t' hi in the neighborhood of “Edward’* Ferr., in great force, with a prohahle view of e.o s ing at that point into Maryland, though it is not known, beyond minor, that any such movement is contemplutt u. Penon-. who have recently viewed the fortifications at Washington, report them as now im pregnable, ami the Federal forces at this point are estimated as high as 300.00 U men. The Confederate force, ia thisquar ter, is put down ut 200,000* though we doubt whether anything is known, be yond conjecture, of the actual amount of force upon either, side. We learn, from Western Virginia, that nothing decisive has taken place in that section; and we aire informed, by the f{ieh mond Examiner of a late d.-t . time G n . Lee and Hoaeucrius are yet seventy five miles apart, which renders all reports of a probable early 'engagement, growing out of their reported proximty to each other, entirely unfounded. There is nothing new from Fortress Monroe or Hatteras Inlet, except a report that the North Carolinians have concen trated a force of 2000 men near the latter point. The members of the Maryland Legisla ture and such other political offenders as have been arrested in this State, and not subsuquently released, have been sent to Fort Lafayette. C. I. Durant and Jos. H. Maddox .jEsq , from this com. tv, have been assigned apartments th*.re, though their friends, relying upon the hope that at an early day the Government will discover and repair the injustice that has been done them, look forward to their speedy release. ! From the Baltimore Snn of Tuesday, we learn, that at a Peace Meeting recent ly held at Port Deposit, Cecil County, a body of Federal soldiers interfered, pro ducing a fracas, ! which resulted in the death of the chair noun and another mem ber of the meeting, and in the wounding of several others. i'Two of the soldiers arc also reported to h4ve been wounded. It is stated, that tbje offenders have Leon handed over to the civil authorities for trial, and we trust! they will he severely punished for their disorderly and criminal behavior.

LIFE IN FOUT LAFAYETTE. I p to Friday l>f eighty ->dgiit piiuuers h d bi'n coiLu.ttitd to Port Lafayette, New York barb- r tW*<*e. nine bn re been discharg'd ;ii \ ai'ious times, lenving Seventy-eight still incarccrat.-d. The ( Evening F*.; describe* life t the furl a* follows: Th-* place is not so iniioli a prison as it 5? n somewhat •exclusive" boarding-hon.se, with sufficiently .-irii g*nt rues for the eighty oj- less holders in the establishment, ihe sc rubs er* conspicm usly placet! cn the wall of cedi room, to that he xlui rnnt> i may read; and the facilities for reading arc 1 somewhat in advsi.ee of those for running. They prescribe that the prisoners’ rooms must be ready for inspection at nine jo’clock in the morning; thut washing must jbe done in the yard ot the fort; prisoners must not talk with any member of the gr -: riiiou. but can communicate their want? 'to the sergeant uf the guard; they must n"t leave their r-*o!us unless ii company with a guard; hey must obey inijlicitlv | the directions of any member of the guard'; •and they are m titled that any transgres ; sion will b- puni>li d by solitary con tin - incut, or <uch otUer restrictions as may ne liLceftaarv to a strict enforcement of the * fUIcS. There Is nothing sp<.* , lallv about these rules. The primmers must ami must not do certain th.ngs, but they are allowed many pri vileges* Those who ' are together in one numi can convene j freely witfi each otln r, but they are uoti ti- J that they mu*! mt talk about the po litical affairs < 1 the country in the h'lrirg *t any mejnher of the garrison. They <an have lighis in limit - roi m.s until fifteen minults ji .si nine u i lock, and after that ■ hour noise and loud talking must cease for tiie night For an ncur il. the morning and afientiioii the prrfuers c:in promenade 1 about the pr mises. (in company with a ! guard,) a.id :’.t mijli limes can call on their friends and f i.ov;-j.!. om-m in the oilier rooms. The doors of the rooms are open ’i -i a’. . A. M and eloscil ui. ii o*c: *ek in ihe evening. It in. y be slated that the prisoners generally appreciate their privi- I am. that tii< re have been no in li ii’g- men:s ot the rules sufficient to merit punishment. At h 1 rt Lf;*yette, as elsewhere. • **!iiiii*yif Falfttarf says, “is a good sul ’ tier.” '1 h ose who have Ihe means for ; doing so tan live nearly as well at Tort Lafayette as at any hotel. In one largo room, which is about sixty by fifteen feet, j there are no less than thirty of the i “better class” of prisoners, who h ive • both frienua and money. These have I clubbed t g fhcr. and have made anange j incurs by which their meals arc furnished ’to order. Their funds are deposited with 1 one ot the officers, who acts as bur Ka i, ami ■ iic wife ol one of the soldiers does their catering, conking and washing. To meet •mfside hills for food, supplies, newspapers, tobacco and *>ther comforts, the prisoners give an order on the bursar. The club men get a good breakfast and dinner (with a moderate allowance at dinner of some stimulant l at a cost of about one dollar ]e? diem for each. They are subject to no - xtortion of an}' kind, and supplies are furnished at a reasonable rale. In the morning, when the Toney Is land boat, or first train from Rroo klyn. arrived at Fort Hamilton, the prisoners who have made arrangements can get all the city morning papers, and are thus dai ly informed of affairs in the outside world Their correspondence only is subject to censorship, and as has already been stated, lottv rs written to or by the prisoners are opened and road by the proper officer, and the few persons who have been released from custody have been forbidden to car ry away any written communication. The club-men live-well. They pass their time in reading, discussing, (among themselves) matters and things in general and “the situation” in particular, and play cards, chess and checkers by the hoar. Tobacco is not tabooed, and the club, for a large part of the day, is under a cloud in more senses than one. Similar but smaller clubs have been or ganized in some of tha other rooms. There are a few prisoners, some of the sad ors and others, who have no money, and are consequently dependent upon the au thorities for their daily bread These are furnished with good and wholesoml but plain food, differing but little from the rations of the soldiers who am their keep ers. All have an unlimited lookout view of the bay and Staten Island shore. The passing snips and steamers break the mon otony of an otherwise weary day. The thr*e daily trips of ihe Coney Island boats are looked for events. There can be one opinion only of the conduct of Colonel Burke and his officers and men towards the prisoners in their charge. The. prisoners are allowed every privilege consistent with their safe-keep ing, and ha\e no reasonable cause for com plaint. The loss of liberty is, of coarse, the main privation, but (bc*e prisoners who have been uncharged testify that, so fur from the imposition of anj unnecessa ry restrictions, they were more favored during their incarceration than they bad any reason to expect when they were sent to Fort Lafayette. BRECKIVEIJDOE PARTY DT KEN TUCKY The Louisville Courier , of the 30th nit., has a report of a larb*;ue at Rich mond, Kentucky. Several prominent gentlemen addressed the meeting, among whom was two Hou. J. C. Breckinridge, lie took strong ground against the Au- ministration. We nu.kc the following j extract from the report of his speech : The enormous annum* of money and troops authorized to be levied bv the j bt" *?oogre, wru§ beyond any exam ple in any free country, and was great ly dangerous to t te* liberties of thec nn try. He said that /.ho believed uno*r nuatk the cry of the Federal Adminis tration that the present war was to sus

He said that the State of Massachus etts had, iu evciy w*r since the llevo lutiou our c*nn.try has engaged in. up to the prcH-nt. icnied the right of the hfederal Goveinmont to take the Stats troops beyond th** State boundary to light the battle .of the Federal Gov ernment, and not one soldier did she fiimi>h in the war of or 1^46.
