MINT MAWS BEACON V LBOV AHP TOWN MD., tnvt&n\y MORMVQ. PEB. 3. Vi Ow/fV—d—f The contribution entitled “A Knotty and Naughty Question.*’ has been received •d will appear in our nest Isaac. * A Faithful Version** Ac., has been received and will be published. femoral By reference to our advertising cola sins. It will he seen that Messrs. Trego A Mor- , gan have removed from tbeir old viand to No. Commerce street, Vhere they will I eontinae'their old bostacss. As a mem- | ber of this firm, J. S. Morgan, Esq., is a native, of car coanty and an old patron of the Beoroe, we bespeak for the firm, in their new place of business, a continuation of (he very liberal patronage they have Heretofore received at the bands uf the eit- , bens of ear coanty. However adverse may bavs boen the original intention of the Federal admin istration to the inauguration of a war of races at tbc South, and however sin cere may have been Mr. Lincoln in his past protestations to the contrary, it is now evident that the diabolical and ne farious policy of Greely and Lis cohorts it Out gaining the ascendency in the National councils. The fierce struggle that baa bean going 0~, for the past nev eral months, between the radicals and conservatives may be sail to be now about to culminate, and the clement tbit, hut yesterday, demanded the de capitation of Fremont and drove Came ron from the Cabinet, is about to sig nalise its apostasy by the emancipation of the slaves in the District of Colum bia. Indeed, the public functionaries of tbs nation may be said to be becoming rapidly and sadly abolitiouized. The cry bad been raised, that slavery has caused the war, and. to end it success fully and finally, the root of tbc cause roust be stricken at. Mr. Lincoln, who, but a few months since, declared bis in tention to veto any measure looking to the infringement of the Constitutional rights of the slaveholder, now issues a proclamation recommending tbc abolition ef slavery in the Bordet States. The Great West, that declared its intention to disarm so soou as the war should as* • tue an abolition shape, is now repre sented by Chase, Pomeroy and Lovt-joy. as having seen the folly of such re solves, and ms ready and willing to pros ecute the war ia su*h wanner and upon such terms as the Government may dic tate. The late action of the Congres sional Committee, in recommending the levying of an 1 .hibl- ry tax upon the culture of tobacco, is but another means devised for the abolition of slavery.— Nor is this attack, though covert and somewhat ingenious, misunderstood by tht people of the Border States. They ere a were that the Government must know, that the proposed tax upon to bacco would work an estoppel of its cul ture, and that slavery t< principally de sirable in this region for the prosecution of that peculiar branch of fanning. They are also aware that the Government muni know, that any acliuu on i*s part by which the utility and profit of slave labor is de stroyed is a blow struck as directly at the institution of slavery as if an open war were waged upon it. But we have digressed from the eaptiou •f this article, not accidentally, however, or without a purpose. Our object is tor show the gradual tendency of the adiuiuu tiation and of Congress towards the adop tion of measures hostile to the institution of slavery; but, that notwithstanding, there is still extant in our manacled and] unhap py country, a voice that-dares lift itself above the grovelling influences of party, if not to proclaim the rights of the oppressed. at least to denounce the sets of the op pressor. And, this voiee comes to us from • region in which, wo are told by the organs of tbs Government, the war spirit is aafierce and unabated as ever. Wheth er this be so or not, ws would advise the adcuiubtration to take warning. It is one thing to be in favor of the war, nod another to be an abolitionist. The resent reception tendered to Mr. Philipps at Cincinnati is not to be overlooked, nor are Iks late democratic gains in New York. IHiuois. New Hampshire end else where, without their significance. It way bo true, that the Northern democracy are in favor of the prosecution of the War, that the Union may not be maun dered, but it must be remembered that they wage no war upon slavery, nor do they endorse or approve any illegal or onsonalitotionsl connivance, looking to she gradual destruction of Southern in *fittloiki. They would see the Futon MUteod wkk MS old Cmsti.ntion and administered apoa the basis of fraternity and equality, bat the dogmas of Phil ippi Garrison aad Grea’y they scorn and repudiate* Wo repeat, lot the admlnis m l t rat ion take speedy warning. A longer ; persistence in its present lane of polisy will not only unite she Border Slave Slates in • | hostility to the Guvernmerul, but will ul- ' fiffiately build up an element in the North : and West, that will sweep both Repuhli icnaiMu and Abolitionism from power* j forever. It is. therefore, clearly the poll- | : ey of tbs administration. even if it has no < eye to justice, or no sense of the moral obligation incurred by an oath-bound plcdgs to support the Constitution and tuc laws, ; to cease its war upon slavery; and, if it. I can find no better i>r holier cause iu | 1 which to engage, to dibaitd iu soldiery 1 | and let the country be restored to peace. 1 The Hews- The war news that has reached us du- 1 : * i j ring the past week is unusually compli- : cated and inconsistent. Official reports from the fight at Winchester have been received and greatly detract from its ini-; portative as a Federal victory. Instead !of a Confederate mute, accompanied, 1 with great loss of life and munitions of; | war. as at first reported, the Federal?' j are now forced to admit that the engage-1 j mint resuifed iu a far different manner, j The official estimate of their own loss now reaches over 700, whilst by no process of; enumeration can they make that of tb! enemy near so large. The 15,1*00 men i under Jackson hive now dwindled down to 6,000, whilst their own force, original-; ly staled to be 8,000, i* now ascertained | ito have been inmdi larger. The fight - ' lasted from an early hour in the morning until dark, and Gob. Jackson was then * permitted to withdraw his forces without j pursuit or molestation. The Federal*, it iis true, claim to have followed him the | i next morning, but without effecting any j important result in the pursuit. Gen. • .Shields, who was wounded in the fight,; Is said to he rapidly convalescing and to! be already in condition to take the field, j He admits that Jackson's men fought well j laud exhibited in their retreat evidences of the highest discipline and courage. About! 230 Confederates were captured in the fight, but some of the prisoners stated, that the Federal* captured will exceed this number. Late reports from Manassas show a j further advance cf the Federal 9 and the I retreat of the Confederates across the Hap- • pahannock. From the same source, | however, we are informed that n body • of 50 Confederates entered Fairfax Court | ! House a few daj,s since and destroyed a; lot ef sutler’s stores, fore down the f i Union flag? and then retired. Again, wc i ' are told thYt, subsequently, another party [ j has been seen near the Ch. in Bridge and I j that two Union ladies have been captured in that vicinity. Now, it strikes u*. that. ! jif the Confederates have been driven’ I across the Rappahannock and the Fedcr ! als arc in rapid pursuit of them, the coun try between Washington and Centerville would be rather a dangerous locality for ! small marauding bands of Confederates te be found in. Neither can we understand how the Fedctal soldiers are daily ahot down iu the vicinity of Fairfax Court House, “by persons sympathizing with the Confederates,*’ when the Confederate army |is reported to be many miles distant. It is not likely that tbc class of citizens Ikat would remain in a country overrun by ao enemy, especially when they have bad ample meant afforded tuihc for escape, would engage in so dangerous an enter- 1 prise, nor is it reasonable to suppose that such events could daily transpire without at least one instance of detection. Wc are rather inclined to the opinion that the cases of shooting eit her do not take place - at all, or are the result of a more manly and legitimate mode of warfore. Heavy firing has been heard fur tbc past week in the direction of Washington, nod rumor states that there has been a series of en gagements along the Potomac line in r which the Federal* have gained no mate r rial advantage. It is even hinted that they have been compelled to fall back from , their advanced positions and that the Con , i federates again occupy both Manassas and , Centerville. A large Federal force is said > to have landed at Shipping Point, on the Lower Potomac, ’ and Frcticricksburg is . designated as the point of attack. I Late advices from the West show that , Island No 10. still holds out ami is being j i daily strengthened by new fortifications’ . and the arrival of gons of heavier calibre. I • The gun and mortar boa's seem to have i r made uo improvsioti a* yet. and batteries! arc being erected on the uiaitiland to guard ; I against a flank attack. The prevailing: ’ impression now rectus to be, that this > stronghold cannot l captured by the i means at hand, and that the long talked of | * expedition down the Mississippi mast be; t; indefinitely postponed if not altogether, ■! abandoned. The Confederates are report-; I I ed to be still at Corinth, with a force now -1 estimated at 70*000 men, which is being i• daily augmented by arrivals from the South. I Gens Grant and Bad are near this point, P ; With an immense force, and au engage - j went is daily looked for. The Confode -1 j rates arc under the e-tmmand of Bcaure - .gird, Bragg.

(Ib form, which* I Federal* reports fhow to have hem 40.000 \ ■ men at the Pen Ridge fight, 'b now e*tim , >cd at 3.500, quite a falling off, we think, in so abort a time. I Very little baJ been heard from the Bornsidc rxpidition since the. eaptnre of Newburn. The reported capture of Beau -1 fort seems to hove been premature, as like wise the destruction of Fort Macon and the capture of the Nashville.' Late re ports show Port Macon to be still in the pos session of tho Confederates, sad the Nash \ tile to have run the blockade.. Tke News from tke Booth is meagre and uninteresting. Affairs at Savannah ! and Charleston arc reported quie£ and as j liktrljr to tais so for mins tint tohowe. I There b a rumor afloat of a natal attack j upon New Orleans by Com. Porter’s mor- 1 tar fleet, but there b no foundation, what- j ever, for the rumor. The existence of a , strong Union sentiment in East Florida ! is reported, but since ihe flattens and | Nashville “humbugs,”'we hate been slow . to credit any such improbable ru-; mors. Capt. Budd—supposed to be the j same who rendered himself so notorious whilst attached to the Potomac flotilla; —waa killed in a skirmish on the Florida | c<ist a few days ago. Congress is still at work on the District of Columbia emancipation scheme and the Tax Hill. The former, it b thought, will j ultimately pass, whilst the latter is pro gressing without any very material change in its original features. —■ #♦■■ —■■■■ MERRIMAC AND MONITOR. We have received, through • friend, the following account of the recent fight between these vessels by an eye witness, whose position and opportunity enabled him to form a very correct opinion of the incidents aid results of the eugagcmcht. ! The writer b personally known to us to be a reliable and intelligent gentleman and uf a judgment not likely to be warped by pat titan Lias or political feeling. The account should have been published in our last issue but was mislaid by the gentle man in whose charge it was given. “I witnessed the naval fight in Hamp ton Rhodes on the Bth and 9th. As I have ,110 news of much importance to commu nicate this time, I had at wffl toll you something of this fight to undeceive you in r-gard ts some of the transactions which the papers, generally, have misrepresented through their correspondents, who appear ' to have looked upon the action with on. ! eye shut and (he other twice as aide open as it should have been. They aay, for instance, the Merrimac, after the engage ment on Sunday, went up Norfolk chan nel in tow of two gun-boats in a disabled and sinking condition. Now. it is true, she went up the channel with a gun-boat on each side of her, but it is equally tru?, I that she come down in the same manner. It b customary with all heavy draft ships to engage the service of similar boats when they undertake to navigate the shallow waters of such channels. I am fully satisfied that the Merrimac was neith er disabled nor in a sinking condition when she came down. “It is also stated, by these lame cor respondents, that the Monitor whipped her antagonist and caused her to draw off. I Tbb is totally untrue. The Monitor her j self was the first to draw off, the Merri mae remaining in her original position and firing throe times 'after the Monitor j had left. She then returned up the ! Rhodes and engsged the Minnesota j (which was ashore) for fifteen minut.s. j Now, if the Monitor bad disabled the | Merrimac. bow could the latter have cn i gaged the Minnesota, one of the heaviest irrigates in the navy? Hut if the Cam -1 her land was sunk the Congress burned, the Oregon blown up, the Zouave and the tug boat Drmgou disabled, and the; Minnesota badly riddled, it was not through the want of courage or the lack of bard fighting or skillful gunnery that they suffered. They all fought bravely and tke Minnesota like a bull-dog. It was truly a grand sight—the tremendous fire which the Minnesota opened on Sew ell*! Point battery as she passed up to where she grounded—the round shot fal ling like hail and the shells but sting in the air in a duvet line with the battery in countless numbers! But they all fell ! short, whilst the battery, on the other i hand, lost no time in returning the com ! pliment, but unlike the ships, the shots I from the battery were effective, except | where they overreached and struck be j yond the ship. It was there that the fri * gate Roanoke received several shots and I relumed to her anchorage without enter ing Newport News channel. The turn-'; I ing of the Congress was magnificently j | grand. The flames began to burst out about dark, and as they traced themselves | 1 from one end of the ship to tke other and : j began to ascend the rigging, as if to com- ; i pbte the work of destruction, the White i ! Flag could be distinctly seen waving at • I the mast head, as if imploring the devour- , ! ing elements to desist. During the burn- . I ing of the ship, her guns being shotted, were discharged as the fire reached them., ’ which made the scene still more imposing,' 1 and at half past eleven, the magazine ex j ploded. which shook the earth for miles around, and thus was completed the de struction of one sf the bast sailing frigates ir the navy. 1 have not (he IsLt doubt 1 that the Minnesota, the Roanoke, the St. Lawrence and most of the gun-boala in the Rhodes would have been taken or j destroyed had not the Merrimac exhausted . *her ammunition in her fight with tuUj 1 Monitor. In my opinion, sbe can come, ! down and sweep the Rhodes when ahaj ' pleases and fio where she pleases, u there j fis water enough to flat her. On ins; other hand. I think the M.uwtor can do ( k the same. Ido not think there is suck a ; | thing as disaLUag cither.” fOoUWrMCATXD. DON’T STAY LONG. Don’t slay long, husband, said a young! wife tenderly one evening as her husband j was preparing to go out. The word*, themselves were insignificant, but the look uf melting fondness with which they were , accompanied, spoke volumes. It lia all the whole vaat depths of a woman’s lovt — of her grief, when the light of bis . the source of ail her joy, beamed m t brightly upon her. Don f t slay loag, husband, and the i young wife’s look seemed to say, fr here ; | in your own sweet home is a loving heart I whose music is hushed when you are ab-.

It grew out of a con trover- \ sy in which Webb, of the New York j Courier and JSnjuirer figured largely.— • Nathaniel L. Davis then corresponded 1 with Webb’s paper under the signature of; the “Spy in Washington,” who reflected | on Mr. Gilley for charging Wobb with i cor ruptiou in the matter uf the famous \ $52,000 loan from the (J. S Bank. Cil- | ley in debate said that Webb was not to be believed. A week after this debate, 1 Webb went to Waxhington and sent a note j to Gilley requiring him to retract or ex- ! plain bis language. Cil ley refused to do j either. Then followed a challenge from 1 Webb, sent through Mr. Graves. Gilley j refused the cbullegc—it was generally un- j Jerstoud—because Gilley would not treat 1 Webb as a gentleman. Graves then, ac cording to the code of honor, took the place of his principal. He first addressed 1 Gilley a note, desiring to be informed of* Gilley’s reason for declining the chaliege. j Was it because of objection to Mr. W bb. * at a gentleman ? Gilley replied, saying. , he neither affirmed uor denis 1 any- 1 thing ot Webb's character, but felt no dis- ■ respect for Graves. Then fallowed a note i from Graves, stating Gilley’s reply was not, and desiring a categorical answer. ; whether Gilley’s refusal to accept vra> grounded on objections to Webb as a g*u tinman. Gilley, in a note back, declined to answer. Then Graves sent Gilley a challenge, through Henry A. Wise. Gil ley accepted, and named Geo. W. Jones, of Wisconsin (now of Iowa) as his second Gilley bad ebosen rifles, 80 yards apart.— Jones and Wise agreed that 12 x., on the 29th, should be the hour and the day.— Wise found it difficult, at first, to get a rifle. Jones then borrowed one of Dr. Duncan, of Cincinnati, and sent it to Wise, with a.flask of powder aud bullets Wise finally, however, procured a rifle in another quarter. Tke arrangement was to meet at Anacosta bridge, before 2| v. j X., aud thence repair to the ground. Thi-y ■ met accordingly, and reached the grounu about 8 P. X. A little after 3 o’clock, the rifles having been loaded in presence of friends, the par lies wore called together and fully instruc ted as to positions, word of com mand , etc ; and they then took their places, friends of each taking up posi tions along the line of fire to see that (he terms were complied with.— Jones gave the The first exchange of shots was ineffectual. Wise then as- . sembled the friends of each. When to- f get her. Wise said : “These gentlemen j (the principals) are here not entertaining! animosity toward each other—they are I upon a mere point of honor—cannot Mr. . Gilly assign some reason for refusing to ! accept Webb’s challenge which will relieve ! Mr. Graves?” Junes replied there could ' bo no explanation while the challenge was | pending. Wise remarked: “An exchange of shots suspends challenge, which is now suspended fur explanation.” Junes saw his prineipal, and returning, asked : “Is challenge suspended?” Wise: ~lt is.” i Jones was about to proceed, ijhen Wise interrupted, saying : “It is better to hsve it in writing.” Jones consented, on con sideration that what Wise bad said should ! be put in writing too. Wise then said :! “Let us hear your explanation, as it may not be necessary to pul it in writing ” | Jones then reports himself is saying to Wise : “Mr. Gilley says that he did not! refuse a duel with Webb from any disre- ; pect to Graves, but because he did not* I* want to be drawn into a controversy with I Webb.” Wise thinks Jones said : “Mr i Gilley says he declined from no disrop-et I for Mr. but refused to disclaim • disrespect for Wchb because not wanting • ; controversy.” Jones and Wise consider ■cd the two versions materially different. Friends and seconds then consulted on . each side. Wise then went to Junes and said: Mr. Gilley’s answer leaves Mr. Graves just where the matter stood at the . beginning. The conversation was renew ;ed and terminated without agreement.— : ; Tben the challenge was renewed, aud a second exchange of shots had without effect. The friends sgain assembled and tho challenge was again withdrawn. Jones —■3 ■ I II J T I remarks: “Mr. Wiw. my friend in com-, ing to the ground and exchanging i h** sfijswn to the world that in declining • Webb’* challenge, he did nl do so because f be dreaded a controversy. ID has show- n ei himself a brave man and disposed to | render satisfaction to Mr. Graves. 1 think | bt; has done ah and the nattcr should end| here.** Wise replied : “Mr. Gilley has I already express-1 n*#pect for Mr. Graves; and Mr. G. dee, not ask of Mr G. a cer tificate of character fur Colonel Webb.— Mr. Graves consider* Col. W. honorable, and must defend his honor as long as that h<>nor appears to he denied by Mr. Ctlley.” ■ Wise thinks be added : “Mr. Graves only insists that he boa not borne the challenge | of one who is not s man of honor.” After i further conversation the ehallege was re-! newed. Junes and fiuc then walked) each proposing terms. Wise asked j .Tonrs: “Could not Mr. Gilley assign for j ronton, that he would not be held aeeoun-' table f r words spoken in debate ?” Jones r plied ; * *Mr. Gilley docs not wish to be 4 understood a* expressing an opinion whetb- ! cr he wait or was not accountable. Wise i then asked : “Will not Mr. Gilley say he intended no dwrepecl directly or indirect ly ” Jones replied: “Mr. CUU*y enter- ; tains no disrespect f.>r Mr. Graves, but j decline s to be drawn into controversy with i; W>rbk.” Another and third exchange of _ shot* was tben agreed on, before which, j however, Mr. Wise said: “If this does; nt determine it. I propose to shorten the . distance.” Jones : “After this shot I will! entertain the proposition.” The exchange i was made will) fata) rfleet. Grave's ball . entered the body of Gilley, and separating a main artery, produced almost immediate ; death. —~ . * 1 Fr*ym Hit Otnrnnmti Knqnirer. * THAT RESOLUTION. It is reasonable to suppose that the! President attaches, in his own mind, some j meaning to the resolution which be desires j Congress to adopt—that he expects it will ! serve as an inducement to some sort of legislative action uu the part of seme of the border or other slave States. But suppose the resolution should be passed— what then? Will it become so binding upon the present or any future Congress : that cither will be under any obligation ‘ whatever to give or lend money to the | States to purchase negroes, or it ! to the owners of slaves in those .States in | payment of (lxir emancipated chattels? The proposition—if proposition it may ; be called—is made to States as loyal, and j to their loyal governments. The relation 1 , of site loyal States to the Union has not been changed by the war. Before the i war it was nut* believed that one of the j powers uf the General Govern incut was to purchase or free the slaves of citizens, or : t Make com pen sat i uto the owner* in ease | th y freed them th mselves. Gongr ss | cannot transcend the powers which bdong : lo it under the Constitution; mid, if it ; should do so, there must —if ours is a ; Goverment, and not a delusion—be some authority somewhere lo prevent it* Jc- \ ercei* from being carried into effect. T-it* ie atiou between the master and the *, 'servant in the South is a pruj.rutary re t lalioti The Government can take the j property of the citizen, on paying its val ■ ; lie to the orvucr, but only when required 1 for a public use. The fact tint, in the opinion of the President or of Congres the relation between a body of loyal pim ple and their property is inimical lo the! public peace, is not such an use as will | create the right to sever it. Does the i Government, for any purpose, want the J services of the negroes of Kentucky, or j Missouri, or Maryland? Then lake them, aud pay for them at what they are 1 worth in the market. This is (ho begin* i uiug aud the end of its powers, and when I it transcends these it is an usurper. Ex-Gov Hicks —Mr. Orihficld, Mem-! ber of Congress from Maryland, having i said, in the House of Representatives, j that to “the Governor of Maryland (Hicks) ! are the people indebted for the safety ot | the capital.” Mr. Cavode, Rep., of: Pennsylvania, promptly and pointedly replied: “With respect to ihe action of the late | t*ovoin'r of Maryland, 1 deem it my duty ! to say. that I heard that gentleman make j a speech, standing under a secession Jf tj (laughter), on the evening of the riots in | Baltimore, at a meeting where it was dt- ! tennitrrd tfuif no more troops should he cd - | loirrd to jo through that citj to the defense i oj the national capital. Mr. Gri>field's pitiful reply ws*. that ! “the Governor of Maryland was but a human being, and was then surrounded ! by a mob. and did, under influences, that | which be could not justify.” Rcmorkd Dkatu or Francis Gal-* LAOiiKit. —Among the slain on the Feder- i si side at tke battle of Winchester, on Sunday last, is said to be Francis Galla gher, of this city.
