DARING ACT OF PIRACY.
The steamer Chesapeake, of the Cromwell
line, bound from New York to Portland, on her
regular trip, with a large cargo, valued at
$lBO,OOO, was taken possession of en Monday
morning, about one o'clock, by a party of rebels
numbering about sixteen, who were apparently
unarmed anti inoffensive passengers. The captain
was put in irons, the second engineer shot dead,
and thrown overboard, and some others 'of the
officers wounded_ The astonished passengers
were then notified that they were prisoners of
war to the Confederate States of America. This
extraordinary proceeding took place about
twenty-one miles northeast of Cape Cod. The
captured officers and crew, together with tho
passengers, were landed by the daring pirates at
Partridge Island, and the steamer then started
off to sea. When last seen she was lying along.
side another vessel, apparently taking in coal,
and it was thought that she would make for
Wilmington, N. C., and endeavor to ran the
blockade. Quite a fleet of Union vessels, both
mom Portland anti from New York have started
off in pursuit of the Chesapeake.
mir A tarri.n PARAGRAPH of five lines in re
ference to Parson Brownlow's late " skedaddle "
from Knoxville—which we innocently clipped
from one of our flattops, with the addition of
only a few words of our own—has aroused the
ire of an anonymous correspondent of The Tunes,
who, skulking under the clietingnished news of
"Dix," bawls lustily for somebody "to rebuke
this abusive and unwarranted attack upon this
heroic patriot." lie says
" Every paper in this city with a spark of
magnanimity or patriotism, should spring to his
defence, and every 12yal M - 411, be he a Republi
can or a Democrat, !hyoid protest against this
outrage upon decency, truth and justice."
"DUX" was evidently on a high " rampage"
when he wrote that appeal for recruits to avenge
the Parson's wrongs; but, as attempts to in
flame the passions of the people against Demo
cratic newspapers and their editors, have become
every=day matters in these inieneely loyal time!,
the present outburst does not alarm us very
much. We will not yet—in the classic language
of the great American humorist who performs at
the While Reuss, or in imitation of Parson
Brownlow's • Falstaffian example—.• turn tail
de for the roma himself, he is a valiant hero
—in words, but we have yet to learn of any
heroism he has exhibited in action. We are
now, and always have been, willing to accord

secant' who have suffered quite as much as, and
Sacrificed a great deal more than be, in their de
Nation to the Union; anti have proved their sin
cerity by bearing all in silence, instead of roam
ing about the Country, like Ile Parson,
a catalogue of his wrongs, intermixed with a
multitude of strange oaths that would be de
nounced as blasphemy if uttered by tiny other
man or any other Parson. His loyalty may be
genuine; but, like that of some folks, near at
home, who are among the loudest brawlers, it is
of the kind that pays.
CONGRISS AND CONSTITUTIONAL LAW. - The
eclion of Congress, in the cases of the Senators
and Representatives who were elem ed in utter
disregard of the Constitution and Laws, proves
that the Abolition majority are ready to go to any
length in violation of their oaths, at the behest
of party. In the House, the members from
Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Missouri and
Kansas, were admitted by a vote, over the head
of the Clerk who, in obedience to the law of the
last Congress—passed by the radicals themselves,
to serve their own purposes—had omitted their
names from the roll on account of informality in
their credentials. And in the Senate, two per
sons claiming to represent a State called West
Virginia, were admitted, flatly in violation of the
Constitution; and yet, only five Senators recorded
their votes against this flagrant act, to wit:—
Messrs. Buckalew, Davis, Hendricks, McDougall
The Beaton Pod, in commenting upon the rev
olutionary course of Congress, at the very open
ing of their session, says:
"We are glad to see the first vote of the able
and accomplished Senator Bookalew, from Penn
sylvania, on the side of the Constitution. This
shows where he will be found. Every word from
him since his election, marks him the fearless
defender of his country, and the well furnished

on the south and Sherman on the north bank.
Longstreet had thirty six hours' start of our
troops in his retreat, but could not get off with

in East Tennessee is utterly broken. The rebel
accounts admit the retreat of Longstreet towards
The President, upon the receipt of this news,
hawed a proclamation announcing that East
Tennessee is clear of the "insurgent forces,"
and recommending that the people shall, upon
receipt of this intelligence, assemble at their
places of worship, and "render special Lomage
and gratitude to Almighty God for this great
adtancement of the national caure."

President Lincoln's third annual Message was
read in Congress on Wednesday—a day later
than usual. lie print it Invilay, from an accarate
copy, and not from that transmitted by telegraph
to the doily papers, which contained innumera
ble errors. It is a characteristic document—
boating intrinsic evidence, in the only point
presented that will command any considerable
Jegree of public attention—we mean the war
policy of the Adeelnietration—of being a direct
emanation from the brain and pen of "A. Lin
tole." As might have teen expected, it goes lo
:its full length of the main' programme, and
proclaims to the world that en long as the exec
oti-e poser of the 06E.61...‘Me11i centimes in
its present hands, the anti-slavery Meagurc3

confessed by the President —shall not be retruet

the South were to lay down their arms to
morrow, and offer to submit to the Federal
authority in strict obedience to the requirements
of the Constitution; but that henceforth the
war is to be prosecuted primarily for then - petition'
of slavery, in defiance of Pate, in disregard of the
decta - ations of the Inaugural Address made on
der the t oiemn sanction of en oath, and in vie
-1 lotion of the almost unanimous pledge by GO
grass in July, 1861. The recent Stout elec
tions—carried as they notoriously were, by. the
interference of the military arm of the Admin.
istrat ion—are cited as evidencethat the people
approve these radical measures, and will support
them to the end. And sto, ! the prediction long
ago made, but., up to a very reee'et-dittes; otiosity
denied, that it was the ultimate design of the
Abolitionists to usurp the power.llo wipe . out
slavery in the States that, when the Union was
forma had, by the consent or all, reserved to
themselves the exclusive control over it, is lit
erally fulfilled. Let us no , . omit to note hero,
the impoz taut. mattriiggion. b' Mi.. Ltneeln that the
exercise of this power by the General Govern
ment. is unlawful. True, he attempts to qualify
it by drawing an imaginary distinction between
"a matter of civil administration" and "a mil
itary !nonslip's." But, can any one tell us whence
the President cleaves his right lo do in the one
case what is clearly not conferred in the other?
The plan proposed for the reconstruction of
"loyal State Governments" in the States new
in rebellion, could not have originated with any
one but Mr. Lincoln himself. It is certainly
original, and ingenious enough, too; but it
wants the very important requisite of practica
bility. Is it at all likely that any considerable
number of the people of the South will consent
to take an oath of submission to the very meas
ures which they considered, when merely threat
ened by a political party organized in hostility
to them, so gross au invasion of their constitu
tional rights as to justify secession from the
Union? And, it may be pertinently asked,
where does the President get his authority to
prescribe this or any other form of oath as a
izet of loyalty? There were, at the time when
the whole country believed, end the President
and Congress declared, that the war was to be
prosecuted for the sole and single purpose of pre

secession with ell the influence they possessed ;
but who, by the force of circumstances that
they could net control or overcome, were com

Government. There are, even now, - its we firmly

the United States, or to forfeit any of their con
imitations]. rights. They stand ready to resume
their relations to the Federal Government, and
with them the performance of all their duties,
es soon as that Government is able to perform
its duty, by extending to them its protection. Is
it not, then, a monstrous assumption of arbitrary
power. to proclaim that men of this class shall

belief that a plausible effort has been made to
restore the Southern States to their proper place

prosecution of the war for abolition unto the
bitter end—or, at least, until another Presiden

LIEUTENANT CrIINERAL.—The bill reviving the
office of Lieutenant General, of which notice was
given in Congress on Tuesday by Mr. Washburn,
of Illinois, is intended to give Gen. Grant the
position to which his talents and his victories
are generally thought to entitle him. General
Grant's best friends at Washington speak of this
as a fitting reward for his services, and deny that
he, or they in his behalf, have ever thought of
making him President.

contained injurious properties. This objection
DG Wishart, of Philadelphia, claims to have
overcome by a peculiar process in the distillation

if we are to judge from the many testimonials

a great medical discovery. See advertisement in
