McClcllan : We learn that McClellan, an ojKcer if m-/urttionnbl< capacity, an arrow/dtshrd, cnt< rprisitoj and successful t><Ad» r. is to be put at the head of their invading ar mies. subordinate only to (ien. Scott. Wc do not regret this change so far as the fame of Beauregard is concerned; on the contrary, we rejoice that it has been made, because we know there could be little credit iu scattering such troops as have heretofore met our hero ic men in battle, led by tho Pattersons and Butlers, and such like political trash. McClellan is worthy of Beaure gard's attention, and while we have not for a moment a doubt of the result of their lirst measurement of arms in the field, nor of any later conflict, so far as the reputation of Louisiana's great sol dier is involved, wo hope when they are face to face arrayed against each other, no great disparity of force nor deficiency of material will bo allowed to cripple our side on the eventful occa sion. J N presence of UP officer SO t/ior ouyhly a soldier as McClellan, it would nut d<> f<>r our yallant boys to sleep or be veijliijad on outpost duty in contempt of the jbe; lie will, if any one can, make something of the sons of tho Pilgrims, the descendents of the May Flower's passengers, and, therefore, our complete satisfaction that one whom it will be really a great honor to defeat is now to be put at the head of the Lincoln army of subjugation. The New Tkkasvhy Note?. —There arc two kinds of Treasury notes—the " Demand Bills," for general circula tion, ami without interest; and the | Treasury notes which bear 7 8-10ths [ per cent, redeemable in three ysars. i The denominations of tho Demand I Bills'' are §5, £lO, and #2O; while those ' bearing interest are SSO, SIOO, $">00, ! £I,OOO and $.">,000, There are five , kinds of five dollar notes, payable on ! demand in New York, Boston, Phila delphia, St. Louis and Cincinnati, and : of course, for all business purposes, are | better than specie.

L'l TJXACIOT'B PKOPLK. —If Ireland wa« only a litdo larger, it would produco fighting men enough to wollup ail crc tion.

The former reikis against a governinent which he a. kii"*»l edges to be good because of his love of riot mud bloodshed. The latter adheres to the government because he knows it i* honorable to do so, aud ilia too good to be destroyed. ■■ ■ EXPULSIVE. —Instead of saying "it is talse," the phrase is now changedto " it is a telegram''—and the change seems to bo for the better.

Ilia mother, after the death | of his father, which took place when he was a child, removed to Chicago, where 1 the has resided with her son for the past twenty-three years. She married a respectable Irish-American in Chica go, named Michael Lantry, who has watched with a father's solicitude the expanding miud of the bravo youngj soldier, lie wan educated at the Cath olic College of North Chicago, under the superintendence of the Kov. Mr. Kinsellar, now of New York City, lie is a strict member of the Catholic Church. In 1852, 1854 and 1854 he ! read law in the office of Isaac N. Ar nold, Congressman from the Chicago District. For a short time he edited the Western Tablet , a semi-religious weekly newspaper. In 1856 he was admitted an attorney-at-law in Chicago. At the time he held the position of Second Lieutenant in the Chicago Shields Cuards, one of the companies attached to the Irish Brigade now in Missouri, and which has done so well at Lexington. Iu the winter of 185? Seuator Fitch, of Indiana, tendered him a clerkship in the Department of the Interior- He accepted the position and spent the | winter at "Washington and corresponded with the Utica 'lelegraph over the no in | tie plume of " Santa." After his return 1 from Washington he was eloctcd Cap tain ot the Shields Guards. On the 1 news arriving of the bombardment of Fort Sumter, he threw his soul into the natioual cause. The Irish American companies held a meoting, of which he was a Chairman. Shortly afterwards he went to "Washington, with a letter written by the late Senator Douglas, on his death-bed, to the President, tender ing a to be called the "Irish Brigade." lie was elected Colonel, and immediately went to work with a will. The course of the brigade up to the battle of Lexington is well known ; l it has nobly, bravely and honorably 1 dono its duly. Colonel Mulligan is worthv of all praise. A purer, abetter man i!oOa not live in the Stato~Of Illinois. Since he was able to toll the difference between ale and water a glass of spirituous or malt iiquor has not passed his lips. He is a rigid temperance man, although he : is jocund and whole-souled to a fault. He' is six feet three inches in hight, ' with a wiry, elastic frame, a large, lus trous hazel eye—an open frank Celtic face, stamped with a bushy profusion of ' hair tinctured with gray. Honorable |in all relations—respected by all—he : has won his way by untiring industry • and unquestionable courage. On the • 20th dav of October, 1850, he was mar- I ricd to Miss Marian Nugent, by the Ro ' man Catholic Bishop of Chicago. I A lino scholar, a good speaker, a ! brilliant writer, a promising lawyer, was he when the banner of the Union ! was insulted. Now ho is—long may iho continue ao—one ot the brave de | fenders of the Uniou.

He MTI the Kassian Government is rapidly posh ing the lines to the mouth <f( Auioot river. From the mouth of the Amoor river it is the design to eontintM tke line, via the Aleutien archipelago, to the Russiau American settlement®, thenco t<» Vancouver Island, and thence to San Francisco. Mr. Collins, of the Xew York Chamlnsr of Commerce, with whom Col. Romanoff has been iu consultation, recommended that the line be carried from the Amoor river along the shores of Siberia to Bellring's Straits, and from thenec adopting the line of Col. Romanoff, to San Francis co. Mr. Collins announced thathehad received a letter from Mr. Sibley, Sec retary of the Union Telegrapli Com pany, in which the utmost confidence was expressed in the feasibility of ex tending the line to liehring's Straits, so as to extend with the Russian line; and believed that as soon as the Russirtd line reached that point we would be" ready to connect with it. Mr. Sibley contends that this route is the only feas ible one to connect Europe with ica. The proposed line w'.ll unite all the telegraphs in the world, without crossing the Atlautic Ocean, so that the great " cab'.e" enterprise need not bd resuscitated. The cost is set down for two wires at $3,000,000. To maintain' this line, 1,000 men at S3OO each per annum, [average] would become neces sary, making a total of #300,000, To this it is proposed to add 100 stations, at SI,OOO per week; two supply vessel, at ?46,150; inteiest ou capital, at 7J per annum, $210,000; contingencies, SIOO,OOO. Total, $750,000. It is cal culated that 800,000 messages at $5 each, would be received, making a to tal 0f51,500,000 revenue. TIIE BAREFOOTED PRINTER BOY.- The Pittsburg Morning Ariel, under this caption, {jives a short storv of a dis tingished citizen of Pennsylvania, as follows: Some forty years ago n barefooted boy floated down tho Husqttchana or. all humble raft, and arrived at Ilarrlsburg. He came from the North, and belonged to a large family; all his worldly goods were tied up in a little pocket-handker chief. He sought and obtained em ployment in a printing office as an ap prentice. " From an apprentice to a journeyman, from a journeyman to a reporter, then to au editor, the bare footed printer bov worked away against obstacles which tlio suffering noor only know. The persevering follower in Frankliu's steps began to realize the fruit of toil and privatiou. The young aspirant became printer io tho State, and by frugal management was sooa enabled to accomplish the object near-* est his heart—the establishment of hie' mother in a homo above want — in pos session of every comfort she could de sire. Ilis brothers were his uext care;, and Napoleon like, he had a strong arm with which to aid them— an iudora itable perseverance that nothing could long successfully obstruct. In a few years they, too, with his sisters, were independent in tho world; once barefooted printer was iu possession of influeuce, surrounded by a young and affectionate family, lie was the friend of the friendk'u, a patron of merit, and an cncouniger of industry. lie rose in honor and office, until the barefooted printer boy. who entered a printing of fice in Harriftburg. hungry and w«ary, laid down bis bundle on a pile of wet |iaper and asked to Kvimif a printer's apprentice, was elected a Ctiitod State* Senator. ThU man is binion Cameron, the present Secretary of War. A CHAILBXUE ANDAREM.Y.—IITMGF D. I'ltatiw, E«|., the editor of toa Louisville JotrnaL, having been chal lenged by R»gtr W.
