Withdrawal of tho Enemy to

rumored here to-night that Mobile has fallen.
Tbe news is said to have been received from
ltebel deserters, who assert that Dog river ar
as pasted by the ent ire fleet of Admiral l'arragut,
and that, after a brief shelling, tho aity sur
rendered, the troops having withdrawn into the
interior. This statement may be correct.
It Is well known that Admiral Farrugut's ap
pliances for removing the obstructions in the
chanuel of Dog river bar were ample, and that
the torpedoes could be removed with the greatest
facility. Then the channel would be perfectly
cleared and an uninterrupted passage given the
licet close up to the city.
That Mobile has surrendered without a defense
Is scarcely probable, though by no means Impos
sible, as resistance would only Involve loss of life
and property, without twy adeiiuate advantage.

The columns of this paper bear witness that we
have labored to harmonize the Democratic party.
Whatever concession we could mako that did not
involve a sacrifice of the immutable principle to
which this journal Is dedicated, w e have granted.
Our most fervent desire was to sec consummated
the unity and concord of the Democracy in this
Presidential campaign. Itelicving that the life
of Kepiiblieanism depended upon this Issue, wo
mudo every etlort to conciliate the conflicting
sentiments that were arrayed in opposition to the
present Administration; for we believed that the
defeat ol Mr. Lincoln would rcnwve tho chief
obstacle to pcaco.
Itut, above all the claims of expediency, the
principle to which we uro Irrevocably 'hound
(was absolutely, and demands our li.ieluy
beyond nil other considerations. We have mi
lured and strengthened tho peace sentiment from
its genu. Wc have been fuithtiil to il throughout
the ordeal it has passed, an ordeal tint it could
not havo survivul if within its o u essence it had
not possessed the elements of eternal life, tho
truth that may be hidden but not destroyed.
To that principle that is the guide of our politi
cal action throughout this crisis, and that com
mands the journal we have devoted to its intcrcs-s,
we are linked by a bond t tint cunnot be loosened.
As wc b:oo.I by it steadfastly when to do so was
to coiitt persecution and to invite Mpprcssion, wc
shall surely not desert it now, in the day of its
strength, when, in fact, it rules tho political
The suffrages of tho peace men ore essential to

men cannot give their suiting, s In violation of
thiir principles. To bo true, therefore, to the
Democracy, we must insist that its principle be
horn stly represented in this canvass ami fairly
put at issue al the polls.
We welcomed, in the platform presented by
the Chicago Convention to he Democracy, the
proposiii.m for an immediate eesirt iin of hostili
ties and a Coiiventiun of all the Mates. To cease
lighting an. I to upKul to reason unu calm discus
sion ol the questions in dispute; tint is precisely
the plan of action that wo have udvoc.ited from
the comment ement of hostilities.
It is fair to Mipi.ose that the Sovereign States,
soUmnly ns-ciublcd in Convention, would exer
cise such judgment and conciliatory attributes as
are duo to the spirit of enlightenment mid Chris
tianity, and would use their best endeavors to
free our political system from us imperfections,
that it might accord, so tar us possible, with the
u.tercftts of all, and be i llcnsive to none.
The Chicago l'latlorm promises with its
triumph mi immediate ce.-satiou ol 'hostilities, and
advocates a plan of reconciliation that every
peace man can conscientiously indorse. Wo a

upon the platform.

Here Is nn account of an entertainment which
few readirs could havo witnessed : "1'he olliccrs
of tlic Twentieth Regiment l'unjaiih lulautry en
tertained their guests lust Saturday night with
tm exhibition of the sword dances of the warlike
tribes serving in the regiment. The performances
began with ihe war dance of the I'athaua. Tho
pipers and drummers, genuine Tallinn musicians,
supplied tho weiid and monotonous music, to
which the dancers kept time with their paces,
movements, and the brandishing of their tulwars.
'The dance was a series of studied uttitudes, timed
steps and advances, accompanied with various
drawing-cuts and rapid brandishing of the tulwar
overhead. The movements wero continued in a
circle around the group of musicians. The rapid
w hirlings of the tulwars, and the swift and telling
cuts which the dancers laid about them, naturally
rnsed a dread in the minds of the spectators that
the dancers would injure themselves or tucir
Hut nothing could exceed tho extraordinary
tact with which Ihe dancers, when they up
proaehed each other, guided their tulwars, with
out reducing the velocity or tbe variety of their
flourishes. T he I'mbaus were succeeded by tbe
run.iaul.ee Mussclumns, whoso displuy was less
warlike, but more skilful. Two tall aud lithe men
engaged in single combat apparently, advancing
and retreating, aud w hirling their tulwars with
surprising rapidity over their heads and shoul
ders and under their ai ins, exhibiting niuch power
and pliability of wrist and shoulder. One of the
men subsequently performed a series of singular
und (.rotes. uo feats with the tulwar. Forming
an inch of his body with one hand aud one foot
on the eroond. and the faco unuermoht. and nro.
belling himself round in a ciiclo with the otucrT
loot, hu executed a variety of the most astonish,
ingly rapid flourishes with bis tulwar, to the
imminent risk of bis nose and eurs. Standing
erect on one foot, and closing his eves, he whirled
bis body round rapidly, and, while so engaged,
sheathed and unsheathed his tulwar in a vanoty
of i-osilions, before him, upon his forehead, upon
bis head, and behind his back. A number of
men then engaged in a round dance with tulwars,
similar to the dance of the Tnlhans. Tho next
performance was a more peaceful dauco, with
tbields, but without tulwars. The dancers hopped
and skipped around the pipers, keeping time
with tho music, aud noting the conclusion of
each bar by simultaneously stooping down and
striking their shields on tho ground. The Dogras
a less warlike tribe, inhabiting the territory oi
the Maharajah of Cashmere, concluded the exlii
bition with a fencing match with short sticks.
T he combatants had each two sticks, which they
used together, employing both bauds in perform
ing the same movements with both sticks. Keep,
ing time wilh tbe music, they executed with
great dexturity and precision a variety of blows
and guards, advances and retreats, and other

T W O 31 U IN H II O T .
Ijist evening, between eight and nine o'clock,
a riot occurred in South Camden, which, for the
time being, was of n most formidable character,
and which threatened to terminate In a serious
loss of life. The facts, as near as wo can ascer

of the blacks had barricaded themselves in their
l ouses, und from the loopholes of windows and
from tho roof-tops bricks descended iiuite plenti
fully. Information of tho extent of the riot being
romiyed to bis Honor the Mayor, Paul C. Iludd,
! to., that gentleman, together with the Marshal
of l'oiice, John W. Campbell, and a posso ot
policemen, instantly repaired to the neighbor
hood of T hird anu Spru. o stioets.
The Mayor, making his way through the dense
crowd, now augmented to some four hundred
persons, whites and blacks, demanded a cessation
of hostilities. His Honor also presented himself
at the door of one of the tenements from which
bricks were being thrown, and applied for admis
sion. This was at first refused; but the occu
pants, on being assured that no harm would ho
done ibein, opi ned the door, and some arrests
wero made. Other bouses were visited in like
manner by tbo police, aud several other arrests
Still the fight In the streets continued, being
"running" in its character, however, and confined
to the block between Second street and tho Dela
ware river. To make the matter still worse the
fire bell of the States Kngine, Cuiudon, com
menced to sound a general alarm, and this, of
course, served to increase the excitement. T he
nifjit was durk, and it was impossible for the
police to ascertain who were the ringleaders in tho
ailuir, or w ho were contributing tow ards prolong
T'owurds 10 o'clock, however, tho Mayor,
assisted by the police, got tbe rioters at bay, and
the light was discontinued. Occasionally a brick
or paving stone would whi,7, over the beads of
the crowd, or tbo crash of a broken window pane
would rise above the tumult of the mob. lly li ilf
past 10 o'clock the last brick bad been "throw
ed" the crowd had been partially dispersed, and
the lictcrs were marched off to tbe station bouse.
Nine persons were arrested, two of whom, uro
whiles. One of tlic rioters Is A young mulatto
wr man named KlUabeth Mitchell. This woman
struck otlicer Charles Gilbert ovor tbe head with
a porter bottle, inllictlng quite an ugly looking
wound. Otlicer Win. 11. Hawkins was also badly
hurt about the head by a brick thrown by one of
Ihe rioters. The names of the rioters arrested
are as follows : Wm. Hamilton, James Simpson,
Joseph (iibbs, l'liilip Uibhs, John Williams,

A young man by the name of Humphreys was
shot In tl.e wrist, and two negroes are also re

Tho negro, John Laws, when the police entered
one of the houses, jumped from the roof of one
bouse to that of another, occupied by a man
named Thomas. The transfer being accomplished
by a flight a la Uaret, through an open window,

prevalent opinion among the blacks that a gene
