Kcatifort, —the head-quarters of tin- Southern chivalry and aristocracy,—villi some* 1,000,- 000 worth of cotton; the capture of tin* priva teer Sumter, and a large British steamer loaded with anus and munitions of war, nmoiigwhich was a large number of rifled cannon; these successes more than compensate for the reverse at Bull Run, and all others that we have sus tained since the commencement of the war. These brilliant successes are enough to sat isfy any reasonable Union man of the effect iveness and decision of the war De partment at Washington, but they do not con stitute one-half of the successes of our arms. The single victory over the rebel army in Pike county, Kentucky, assumes an impor tance that can hardly be appreciated, even by those who have most carefully watched the progress of events in that most interesting portion of the Union. A large army was en gaged on both sides, the rebels being superi or in number, and the defeat of the latter was most overwhelming, with a trifling loss on our side. The rebels left 400 deatTon the field, with all their baggage and immense supplies of provisions and military stores. This victory, in a strategic point ot view, was vastly important to us. By reference to the map it will it will be seen that Pike coun ty, Ky., is the most south-easterly corner of the State, where both Virginia and Tennessee corner on Kentucky, and was the section of country through which most of the supplies from Tenessce and Kentucky passed, on their way into Virginia, over the Manassas Gap ltail Road. Besides its great importance in this respect, it is trifling compared with its moral influence upon the people of those States, who, up to that time, were luke-warm in their support of the Government, although a large majority were opposed to secession. The news from the Potomac, from Missou ri, and from Europe, ore most encouraging, if not as important in decided results. The news from Missouri shows that Gen. Price's grand army was then in Arkansas, on n rapid retreat South. The army tinder Generals Polk and Pillow, that had since the com- i meucemeut of the rebellion had their head-1 quarters at Memphis, had, it seems, taken ' possession of the small town of Belmont, in Missouri, opposite of Columbus, Kentucky, (the iron banks some twenty or thirty miles below Cairo,) while a large body of rebels oc rupied Columbus. Our troops, some six or seven thousand strong, under command of Grnerahi Graut and McCletnard, made an at tnrk upon the rebels at Belmont, and after a liard-fuught battle of several hours, drove them fnmi tlwtr ramp, destroyed thi-ir tent and baggap*. and then retired in g«id <»rd. r. in uf the arrival of large rein faults from C'.JumW; bnt it seeaa* they did not drew h safe to |«r*ue or attack «nr any in their turn.

A Fellow Fkkli.nu Makes tiium Won miors Kt.vn.—The Portland Advertiser of the 2?th inr-t. congratulates its readers on the very comjilimvntury notice taken of it by the Steilacooiu Story Paper, anil to make the laudation of that chameleon sheet more valu able than it could lie if known as a secession sympathizer, he says: "lie [the lie rah! man] is more particularly deserving of credit from the fact that his brother Republicans are de crying hini for the reason that ho will not join with them in the hue and cry against our paper." Theeditorof the Advertiser knew lie was most grossly slandering the Republican party by associating the ignoramus of the Steilacooiu sheet with them. C. l'rosch is just as much of a Republican as Curry is a supporter of the Government, and gives the li'epublican party the same kind of support. We have never considered l'rosch's opinion worthy of purchase , even if it could be paid for in South Carolina shin-plasters; and af ter that "SSOO affair" was settled, we ex pected that if the pay stopped he would go over body and soul to the i pposition. The Steilacooiu paper of the 28th inst., just one day after the lying editorial of the Advertiser appeared, says of the Republican party: "Nothing short of the full measure of the spoils will keep together a party which is only united by the 'cohesive power of public plunder.' Patriotism is fast getting at a dis- ! count among the Republicans in this Tcrrito- j rv." The fact is Curry, being closely pressed,; is even willing to claim fellowship with l'rosch, and l'rosch through gratitude worshipsCurrv. A Good Appointment. —We nro informed on good authority that our townsman, W. W. Miller, Esq., has received the appointment of Quartermaster in the volunteer service, with the rank of Muior. We apprehend that ho has been appointed Quartermaster of the Brig ade commanded by Gen. 1.1. Stevens. Ma jor Miller is a Democrat, but u sound Union, man—the Administration having very prop erly ignored party ties in the appointing offi cers of the army. We most cordially endorse the selection of the Major for that res]>ousible position, and we do not hesitate to say that < we coufideutly believe he will discharge his i duties in a manner creditable to himself and satifactoiy to the Government. We under- \ stand he m ill leave for the East in a few days. ■■■ ■ ■ Thb " Entkupkise."— 'The steamer Entcr prite did turf make her usual trip down-Sound on Thunnlay last, and hence the un-tubers of the I>-gislatnre would have had no war to have re lied tliU place in time fur an <#- puiisatHMi on Mot. day had it .nt hern that ('apt.

While we have not jinrlirulnrhi censured our l'osimn>ier for re fusing to grant the request preferred by every (oAernniciit official then in i Mympia,together with other prominent friends of t ie (Jovern nient, to refuse to deliver that basi, treasona ble sheet, and thus declare to the world a de termination not to aid in the ciriulation of a paper that glorif* in giving aid and encour agement to the rebels, by every means in its power; still we did feel called upon to ex press the opinion that our Postmaster oug/it to have complied with the earnest request of his most prominent anil loyal friends rather than the wishes of the Advertiser and its pa trons, and, for having done this, it seems we have lost the patronage of one of our exten sive merchants, o very near neighbor of our Postmaster. Wo feel assured that our coutf-e, in this par ticular, will meet the miqiinllifu>>l approval of the Admist ration, as wo holiovo it doe* of every (iovomment officer nml honest Repub lican in the Territory. We would suggest to our tnerenntile iieigh hor that wo have never made it a condition of our dealings with him or anybody else, that they should t/ii/ik just as we do, and give expression to the same opinions of men and measures; hut in the present condition of the country, however, we do require that they shall by the use of menus in their power aid the (lovernniont in puttitigdown the rebellion, and, with this assurance of their loyalty, we care not how widely they differ with us upon other subjects. But if our neighbor is dis posed to apply a different rule to us, and our friends, he will not, of course, complain if the same rule is applied to him. The game he intends to piny will not be all on one .title, as may be supposed by him. ( jfr' A Democratic meeting wan held ut.

One of tlio most obvious of such , precautions is, tlint our ports and har -1 Liors 011 the seas and lakes should be ; put in a condition of complete defence, I; for any nation may bo said to involuti - tarily incur danger in tempestuous sca -1 sons when it fails to show that it has " sheltered itself 011 every side from 1 which the storm might possibly come. The measures which the Executive ' cau adopt in this emergency are such only as Congress has sanctioned, and i for which it lias provided. The President is putting forth the - most diligent efforts to execute these 1 measures, and wo liave the great satis - faction of seeing that these efl'orts are ' seconded by the favor, aid and support * of a loyal, patriotic and self-sacrihcing r people, and are rapidly bringing the | military and naval forces of the United States into the highest state of efficien [• ev. Hut Congress was chicily absorbed, . during its recent extra session, with . these measures, and did not provide as * amply as could bo wished for the forti * lieation of our sea and lake coasts. In previous wars, the loyal States have ■ applied themselves, by independent > and separate aetivity, to the support and ) aid of the Federal Government in its ' arduous responsibilities. The same ': disposition has been manifested in a de- I grec eminently honorable by all the ' ! loyal States during the present insurrec .! tion. i r • /*.l • 1 1 1 _ • J.n view of this fact, ami reiving upon : tho increase and continuance of tho same disposition 011 the part of the loy al States, tho Prosidcnt has directed me to direct your consideration to tho subject of tho improvement and defeu es ©f the State over which you preside, | and fo ask you to submit the subject to 1 the consideration of the Legislature, when »t shall be assembled. Such pro ceedings by the State would require only a temporary use of itn means. The expenditures ought to be made the subject of conference with the Fed eral Government. Being thus made with tho concurrence of Government for general defense, thero is every rea son to believe that Congress would sanction what tho State would do, and would provide for its reimbursement. Should these suggestions bo accepted, ; tho President will direct the proper I agents of the Federal Government to confer with you, and to superintend, direct ami condnct the prosecution of ', defense of roar State. .

And, again, says the Review in the same article: Between Savannah and Charleston lies the great bay of Port Royal, having all the natural advantages and theheatlh desirable in the site of a great commer cial city. To establish such, it is desir able to draw to it men of enterprise who have their fortunes to make, and who desire to give their children relig ious and educational advantages on a spot where they aro likely to find open; inga for businea as they grow up. Port Royal Island is aome five miles, wide, by about ten long. On one side lies Beaufort river, accessible as far as the town of Beaufort to vessels as large as any that can reach Charleston. On the other is Broad river two miles wide, land-locked and deep eridugh to float the largest steam-frigates. Between the two, Battery river is interposed, forming n natural dock in which tho great Jonathan Julias the Great East cm] could float with heryahl-ttrmS over the laud. Jericho neck makes ail If* regular polygon between the town of Beaufort on tho east, and Hazzard's creek on the west; tho south, east and west sides being bounded by water, and the north by a narrow strip of land be tween two salt \va*er creeks. The area is perhaps 15 square miles. Oil the east lies Beaufort with its churches, school-houses, stores, wharves and es tablished society. On the weat lies a tract of land which has been proved healthy by the experience of two generations, and especially of my own fiimily there on for the last three years, summer and winter. On the aouth are cotton-fields cut off from Parry'a Island by Archer's creek. • i *T 1 > 1 A A • _ & *- Under the protection of government it would not be strange if a large towa should grow np at Port Koyal,—which would involve the destruction of both Savannah and Charleston.
