McCathran and Bobbins, who have latter ly left this phec for Washington, were driven hence on account of their Union proclivities, flow this rumor could have got in circulation, or what possible motive there could be for the fabrication of so bas* and malignant a falsehood, wo cannot di vine. Both these gentlemen ha 1 been residents of our village for year past and ( had the confidence and high esteem of our eitiittns. It. was i; pOM J that they left Us simply fiorn ordinary causes and our citizens parted with them with feelings of regret. If they were Union men, no. um ber* Jt is true, it was whisper ed about, upon the eve of their departure. tb.it they were pro-union in tin ir senti ments, but no one conjectured that this induced their removal. How, then, could they have been driven from here on ac count of their loyalty to the GovernmentV In this connection, it may not bo amiss P> Ktate, that it is not our motto here to preach what we do not practice. We an* per *e condemnors of oppression and are fur extending the protecting a?gis of the laws over every citizen amongst ns. U there should lie a Union man in onr midst/*, —and there arc many—who is for tin Union as framed and adminbtered by onr fathers, he merits our esteem and fully possesses it. But, if there are any fur the Union—in the war or modern occupation i of the term —we go honestly to work that j w may secure th'dr conversion. If \vi succeed, it is well. If not, we allaw then. <u go their way, nor do we persecute them or seek their proscription. No Union man in (his county can controvert what we say. nor can a single instance he pointed out in which the light.-* of any one have beet; infracted on account of his political opin ions. We, therefore, pronounce this ru mor a base falsehood am! a pitiful am: cowardly attempt to bring defamation and slander upon our peoph-; and further, w< are willing to abide the testimony of eith er Mr. MiUuthrau or Mr. Dubbins upon the subject. Disenchanted At Last* VN Imtever difference of honest opinion 1 may have existed in Maryland in refer ence to the sincerity of the apprehensions 1 which the Southern Slates expressed and acted upon for the safety of their property when they (bund the Government passing into the hands of a sectional party, no one can now doubt that these apprehensions were well grounded and that South Caro lina, with all her imperfections, was a ▼tritable prophet. JThe. abolition of sla very in the Distrink of Columbia, the nullification of the Wlgitivc Slave Law by Congress and the emancipation design* of Mr. Lincoln upon the Border Slave States, are the solemn witnesses which the carries before the bar of History to justify her fiery onset upon Sumpter. We •f Maryland have been enlightened a lit tle too late, but at least wc have been enlightened. We have discovered at last that the war is waged—not mainly for the | restoration of the Union and the honor j of the Old Flag—but chiefly for the abo- ’ litiou of slavery. Intoxicated fur the mwneni by the soul-stirring cry of “War I for the Union,” we have assisted to rob' the people of the District of Columbia! and to render valueless our own slave inter est. The scales have at last fallen from our eyes and wc see now no longer through a glass, darkly.’ Wc have been brought K> realiio that “our patriot President” is something worse than a promise breaker and that the cry for the Union is u mis erable cheat. We may nbf now avoid the ruin which i* upon ourselves, but it still remains in our power to withdravr our sanction from a war which, it is now manifest, is waged against the Confede rate States from vindictive motives and mainly for the extirpation of slavery wluufc • ver it exists. That T"ice of Mai* lulid may be rendered as effect;'''* possible against the furtlmß proseeu’ijjj of such a war and against all emancipa sehemes. whether they come from Lin coln or his allies in wo ad vocate the ignoring of issues and the formation ul a sufficiently comprehensive and broad- bottomed, to embrace the whole uuti-abulitiou senti ment of our Cigar Ifrvi+ir*~y. t nrder the mnn^o jmM of it,l r ‘‘ Pl?,? eu.. ~ e ; nfr | r . .prir j t or p, 1%0 ,i m*w in na tive e-j* -1 ' 0 " aTM * turning *ut a vrry j )„r£p .tuber of cigars weekly.

It is stated in a telegram from Hen. Wool to the Secretary of War, that New Orleans has fallen and is now occupied by the Federal troops. I list dispatch, however, is wonderfully meagre, when we n.licet ! that it refer* to :i mutter of so much mo- j ment. It simply states the fact of the occupation of the city and gives no paitic ulars as to the mode of capture or the source through which his information i* obtained. The Associated Press has an Agent-at Fortress Monroe and he seems to know as little about the matter as Gen Wool himself. lie corroborates the dis patch from Gen. Wool, by stating that the are in New Orleans, hnt, in the same correspondence, denies that any intelligence has byon received from that city. Indeed, he goes so fur as to state, that the tdograplrie operators have all left New (Weans and this accounts for the ab duce of an official confinnation of the ru mor. Now, it is unite jv>*xiUe that New Orleans may have Wen captured and it ! is also pnssii.fr'\\\nt Geii. Wool's “confr - j band” story may be correct, but before w- ! shall credit any such a rumor, wc must j have belt. r nnthonty it than the con- ) finnatory report.s of Gen. Wool, or even i the tj.uts! endorsement of the veracious Agent of the Associated Press. The cap- J taro of the greatest ciK of the South is ■ not a matter so light, even in the eata- !l logue uf Federal victofcu,*, as to be per- 1 milted to rest in doubt for the period of i three days, nor would the Northern Press, i with its ho-t of army correspondents, | have been likely to have been for thi** length of time without confirmatory evi dence of the intelligence. A report has been received through the .Southern jturnals, that there has been another great battle fought in the vicinity of Corinth. The Confederates arc re ported to have gained a great victory and claim to have taken O,O'JU prisoners. Like the capture of New Orleans,, however, this* is entirely a one-sided story and is pronounced by Federal authority to be I unfounded. Late Federal reports from the Wert make no mention of a tight, at least, so say the Washington correspon dents of the Northern journals. It is ad mitted, however, that 'late intelligence from Pittsburg Lauding shew, that Gen. llallvck was advancing upon Corinth ami i that, subsequently, heavy firir.gHad been heard in that direction. Official rcflLts from that no n&t|£'et taken place, nor is itjpWr that Gen. ScClel- Inn will be lilMy to precipitate afl v *en- i counter. There arc rumors, of course, ' of haid fighting and of Federal disasters, but l as these xuiuors tuny Ins based upon the ; non-rccripl of official intelligence, and the exeitcmcwl. which his been engeu i dcred at the North by the reticence and ‘ sloth of Gen. McClellan, we decline to vouch for their authenticity. A correspondent, writing from Fortress Monroe, v complains that no publication 1 has been made of 9 na*a4 rencounter that ■ very recently look in thal locality. He foe* not, however, sjjfcak of the re sult ot the fight, or give any particulars 1 i pertaiftng thereto, but sply complains that his report has been utijiaretsed by the , j Federal authorities. reuce, we ■ presume, can b? very nrawn as to victors, unless language and lottmdc have lost their significance.

The pres is iu-tlv esteemed, as tlie or gan throucli wbeli \vr are informed of the i our own people and the) atl:: iis i t ollii r nations. Ii is the chain! which joins into one community the many countries which dot the globe. To be! able to jodge of the policy of onr anli podes, and to bo informed of the pro-' ceedings of the great powers of the earth is a pleasure w; i-h we wmiM very unwil lingly resign. Nay, it : more than a pleasure. It is mi incalculable benefit. History is an oracle delivering its admo nitions trom the instructive tomb of fallen i greatness. Arraying hefre us the long ; li.ie of ages, it shows us the road which ■ we should take by pointing out the paths , which led others to ruin. The press is 1 the history of current events. Just up- | on the brink <d a forii'idane precipice, if' warns us that some one has fallen a vie- j tint to the designs which wo entertain.; Beholding the ravages of war upon the' once happy homos of a neighbor, wi learn the priceless value of peace. Moreover, it is the medium through ,• O j whieu the ignorant are instructed. To it. | in a great measure, is due the superior enlightenment of the mass iu this age. i The invention of printing admitted many to the delights of knowledge, who wore before debarred the enjoyment by the scarcity of the means of its attainment Fur & long t ime the wisdom of the learned, being circulated solely by books, was open to comparatively few. Since the first periodical issued, manna-like in its influence, f i —n llifr jp—r the rapid in crease iu IbajLjNud of literature shows the high valiMMd upon it. No man now San tUfik luapdf Ujp poor to avail him- Bil of me and pleasure of a journal. The farmer, free from the toils | of the day, gathers his dear ones around the blaring hearth, to hoar the contents of the paper. The sturdy pioneer in our western forests, far from the appearance of civilized life, beguiles the before tardy and lonesome hours of relaxation from his labors, by studying the affairs of the world and particularly those of kis own country. Thus, amid the solitudes of the forest, where no sound salutes his ear save the howling of the bear and the I hoot of the owl, is he transported, by his paper, to the company of bis friends in the bustle of a distant city Thus is he enabled to weigh the lofty plans of those statesmen who guide the ship of Slate. We have not mentioned the mot Im portaut benefits of the press. It is not ' too much to say that It is one of the etrong : cst safeguards of a nation’s freedom and ! consequently happiness. G reat are the | temptations of power. The insatiable ; beatt of man is ever longing for more than 'it has, though its possessions be bounded but by the horizon. When attained to the apex of renown, the evil spirit of am bition will project some Babel, that, sc ’ curing celebrity in life, it may proclaim by its everlasting summit, cur fame to eter nity. History, alas I for shortsighted man, is tut a chronicle! of such schemes, fn the execution of their purposes, the in fringement of thosa rights which they hold iu tru.-i, seldom ofier an impediment to die ambitious. Ido not hesitate to assert that the press has been an agent iu re training the lust of power and seeming the faithful execution of the laws, in our da}!*.

The machinations of aboli tionists in Congress are accompli-diing jmi directly opposite to what they ostensibly pretend, and the people of the country have found it out.’’ THE NEGRO MANIA. The Senate has passed the bill intro duced by Mr. *Sumuer, to remove the dis abilities of color in mail carriers, the ex ist ing laws forbidding negroes to be en gaged iu carrying the IT.ited States mail. ! Senator Sumner apparently labors under the idea that his constituents arc all black. His Senatorial duties, as reported in the newspapers, seem to he exclusively devo ted to the negro, for whom he labors night ami day. Wonder if this repeal will ena ble the black men to carry the mails in , Illinois and Indiana, whose laws not only ; prohibit the making of contracts w ith free negroes, but forbid their coming into those States ? In discussing the emancip-lion net for; ■ the District of Columbia, Senator LMiltlc, of Wisconsin, was bold to avow Imns-.-lfj in favor of colonizing free negroes, but he was decidedly opposed to compulsory cul- , onization. That is to say, Mr. Doolittle is willing that, government shall pay the passage rf such “colored gentlemen” as , have a desire fur travel, but is not willing to use any less gentle means of ridding j ~ the country of a vagabond population. The Wisconsin Senator, we apprehend. ! j would not be willing to exteud his! system of voluntary colonization to other j , persons than the colored race. Why j . should not white men who desire to emi-1 grate to Australia or to Africa, be provi ded with a passage at government expense, as well as the black mas ? If net, we submit that “our colored brethren,” un der Mr. Doolittc’s system of noa-comp d . hive colonization, wi.l be invested with the L elder brother’s rights, and poor white men, 1 , instead of sharing his privileges, will have to work ext.a hours to enable the homc . sick African to have a lazy Trie passage to . borne tropical climate.— N.

PROGRAMME Of TilE RADICALS IN CoN OKEsS.—The negro agitation has badly be gun iu Congress. The radicals have de termined to change the Fugitive Slave Law so as to give fugitives a trial by jury in the precinct to which they escape. This, of course, will render the law of little value to l ive-nwers. They have also de termined to rccogniz-* Hayti as a Power, and recievo ambassadors therefrom lure, i h y prop-, sc also to rep- al the “black code,” so-called, of h- District of Colum uia, and will nliempt to legalize voting in the l>istrict by six months naidents. These arc a few of the measures which the radical party in Congress, who feel re markably strong just now, will insist upon, and as the session proceeds they will open the black Pandora’s box as wide as p- sidblc. Mcanvvhi e the soldiers of the army are wondering r.s they fight why Fongr<ss docs not attend more closely to the financial interests, and let slavery alciio until the rebellion is ended.— IK/r. A. } JlernUL Advantages of Kiki.y Vaccination The annual report of the Vaccine Com- i mittee was read at a recent inciting of; ‘he French Academy, in which the ijucs- j tion of early vaccinali >u was fully discus- i s- d. M. Dcpaul, (lie reporter, states i mul in ••pile of the oppos.tiou raised to I ho aa-i mr. tion ot new-born chi! Iren llic n searches of the committee lend to -how that litis operation is not more dan gerous in very early lib- than at the see •mi or lliir J month. In private practice, wh re ilie chances ot variob>us infection 1 arc much less than in the wards of an hospital, vaccination may, as a "cncral :-ule, be delayed; hut in the latter came such I delays are dangerous, for, from one hour ' i.o another, eases of small-pox may be ad mitted. “It all children,” continues M. Dcpaul, “were vaccinated within the first two or three days after birth, smallpox '• already rare now in comparison with what it whs formerly, would, wc arc con vinced, completely disappear” This is an important subject for investigation by American physicians. J Tuk Largest City— A very erroneous idea is indulged in by many people in re-■ lation to the largest eiry in rhe w. r d many confidently assorting that London is lar superior both m size and number of inhabitants. But such is not thfc case. Jcddo, the capital of Japan, is, without exception, the largest and most populous city in the world. r 1 he commerce of Japan far exceeds that ; of an >' oth ?r city in the world, and the sea along its coast is constantly while with (the sails of ships “Th* ir vessels sail to the southern portion of the empire where i th ‘7 arc la ; lene( l with rice, tea, seacoal tobacco si.k cotton, and tropical fruits’, all of which find u ready market in the north, and then return freighted woL earn, salt, oil, Dinglas#, and various other productions of the north, which have a market iu the south,” Weight or Cannon. A navy 04 pounder weighs 184 times as much as one ot us shot. The English wrought-irou ! 13*inch gnu, of Horsfall’s, is 17u times (heavier than its shot.
