OFFICE—In Barnes's Building, corner of Main and First Streets, near the steamboat landing. LET HIM ALONE.— The man of this country, whose position now is one of the moat important and the most haz ardous, is Major-Gcncrid George B. McClellan. He is to fight the whole rebel power in armsj with the untold issues of the future hanging on the re sult—and he is also to to fight an army of politicians, routinists, contractors,-in tcrmeddler3, advisers and flatterers .lie needs the energy of a Napoleon and the wariness of a "Wellington, to carry him through the ordeal. Only thirty years old, with a name scarcely known to one man in ten of the reading pub lic before this war broke out, lie sud denly finds himself lifted to a height of popular admiration and regard, which some of the old captains of the world have only reached after decades of bril liant deeds. If his head etfti stand the first sensations of the change, he will indeed give good evidence ot that stir passing merit which most people arc now ready to take upon trust. "He that rulctli his own spirits is greater than ho who taketh a city." Gen. McClellan is human —and while lie may be framed for victory over all enemies in battle, he may fall in ad vance before the combined attacks ot wily pftliticians, corrupt adventurers and mercenary flatterers. If he has sterling friends, they will guard him in his hour of trial. Let him have only the open foes of his country to deal with, and he is safe, and we arc all safe with him. The obstructionist, the red-tapist, the money-maker, the political parasite, and the traitor in his nuudred disguises, are close about him at all times. Let him be shielded from tlieii' contamina tion. Let him bo supplied with men and means for his momentous work, and then let him have control of them commensurate with his responsibility. Let his energies all have full swing, for the cause of the nation is iu bis hands. Let him alone. POPULATION OF WASHINGTON TERRl toat.

After a bombardment ol | about twenty hours, the rebels showed j signs of weakening, so that troops from : the Federal side were sent to make ti > lodgement on the main laud.

Tho bombardment and capture of Pensacola and surrounding points, re sulted in the burning of Warrington. [NOTE. —Warrington is the name of the village or hamlet outside tho Navy Yard at Pensacola. Tho town of Pen sacola proper is some seven miles from tho Navy Yard, but tho capture of the latter must have been preceded by the capture of all the rebel batteries which defended the town of Pensacola.] Immense excitement has been caused by the action of tho Federal troops throughout the Southern cities, and tho citizens of the most prominent towus are preparing to leave in largo num bers.

Peaee, when tbe ; peaceful messengers of commerce, dis -1 playing the flag which no foreign pow er ever yet insulted without an apology being demanded and obtained have been overruled at sea, been plundered, driven ashore, set on fire, and sunk! Pcaco, when the ludians, to whom this nation bos given the mostdilligent pro tection, ana for whose improvement and welfare it has poured out rivers of gold, have been subsidized by the South, and the barbarities which called forth, in thunders that still echo through the Heavens, the deprccatiou of Lord Chutham. by the favored copyists of the turbulence of England are threat ened to be revived bud let loose upon the defenders of the Union. Peace, under such circumstances, such induce ments, under such soothing influences are ennobling guaranties! Where is the marrowless saint, the silly-livered knave, the peddler in diluted Scripture, in compromising whiskey, in Georgia lotteries, in Aldermanic jobs and all the sweets and rottenness of a political career which courts no danger, howev er honorable, but halts at no swindle, however foul or stupendous it may bo —where is the poor driveller, where the pernicious rogue, who in such a crisis as the present, will distract the public car with his importunities for Seace ? Away with him to Hell-gate or erico, if you find such a nuisance. The government which would consent to peace, with such a load of dishonor upon its head and such a harvest of treacheries and insults to thresh out, as the present Government at Wash ington has hud bequeathed to it from the miserable dotage, if not the posi tive criminality, of its predecessor— such a government would, indeed de serve to perish. But whence proceed these'lamenta tions about the war, and these cries of peace ? They proceed, in the first place, from Democratic conspiritors in the North that arc in the secret and in sidious league with the manlier and braver rocusants of the South. _ You all know precisely whero I stand in the political classifications of the country. * * lam a Jacksonian Democrat. Next to Georgo Washington, who founded this Republic, stands Andrew Jackson, who, in a seditious outburst, where the supremacy of the laws and magistracy of the tjnited States was disputed, "instead of vascillating and shivering at the approach of the storm, as the ghastly old creature J as. Bach anuan did—iu full view of the palpita ting earth, boldly went iu, faced the mutineers in their nest and stroughold, scattered them with his bony arm to the winds, and high over the scene of their discomfiture and dispersion, flung to the kindred akies the BTAM AXD STRIPES on a new stream of glory.

The lion, which is eighteen months old, and is called Tom Bayers, after the re nowned pugilist, was strapped in the barrow. Much curiosity was excited to see the young animal. Scores of glasses were*raised and when the head of young Tom was observed, with his eyes wandering about, as if anxious to know what was to become of him, the clappingand cheering became VQIT great. Having adjusted the barrow, Blondin began to move apparently trembling with the weight of his load. A gye was attached to the barrow, and as it was let out by his assistant it by some means or other got entangled after be had proceeded some thirty or forty feet. Blondin halted and the gye rope fell to the ground. The heart became sick at looking at him. People held tbeir breath, expecting every moment (bat the gymnast, with " Tom Sabers" and the barrow, would be precipitated into 44 the citv of Pekin," or into the lake below. Instantly Blondin'e ree 4aiKwi was taken. He evidently con Id net go on, and be began to more backward cautiously and alowiy. Women were terrified as if thsy vtn wituu—ing an exaection. A deep silence prevailed, which waa only broken when Blondin landed safely on the platforta. Again the barrow was adjusted, and Wanlia ■ow4 on this time ■ iibnnt a gye rope.
