Beyond the facia, that the great Fedcr- i al Armada has succeeded in silencing two t muui lotteries near Beaufort and in effect ing a lancing upon one or two of the au- t jacrnl islands, we positively know nothing I The rest is mostly "leather and prunella. 1 It is certain that no movement into the in- tenor baa yet been effected or attempted.

Any attempt to pene- 1 Crate inland is almost A * n< j disas- ' trously to the Federal arms. The Con- ' federate army is certain to have the ad- i vantage of j> >uion, and, indeed, like the 1 ancient giant, it appear? to he invincible 1 whenever it touches the earth. But there 1 will be no inlaud movement.

The latest Federal accounts from Mis souri represent that Gen. Hunter, the Federal commander, w running from Geu. Price and Gen. Price from Gen Hunter. It is not slated which v? making ib<* best lime, but it ia ecrfaiuly known that Hunter ia already in Bt. Louia. Price, it is supposed, will take up some where in Arkansas. The likelihood is, that Hunter has Ucn forced by military j or ulhec necessity to abandon Bpriugficld and to take refuge iu Bt. Louis and that Price ia at or near bis old quarters. * Dt.

This definition of the crime waa taken from the statute of iib hdwari 111. of Knglami, rt.d which o. been s. vr*:l yea,* affirmed for the purpose of correct ing abuses that had grown Uj, in thnt country in respect to the law, both by acts of Parliament and the decision of courts, under the tyrannical reigns *f the Tudors and the Sta-irts. These abuses were well known to the founders ! of our govern me ot, and doubtless led to} the peculiar phraseology observable in j their definition of the crime, namely, i that it should consist ostv in levying! war against the United States or aUh r-I ing to their enemies, giving theai aid and comfort; and to the other equally j stringent feature, that no person shall j bo convicted of the offence except or; j the testimony of two witnesses l<> the. o*ame overt net.
