New YORK, Nov. 17
A dispatch received here yesterday says that
there are between four thousand and five thou

shore of Virginia, where there are eighteen
hundred rebels in arms. Commodore Golds
borough sent a gun-boat there to-day. A regi
ment of cavalry is expected there in a few days.
Fifteen thousand troops are now at Anna
polis, ready to embark. The rumor is that they
are to reinforce Gen. Sherman.
A fleet is understood to have gone to Pensa
cola, and the news of another naval exploit may
be expected soon.
Gen. Sherman is reported to have seized
Pinckney Island, and all the able-bodied ne
groes. No attempt has been made to land on
BALTIMORE, Nov. 17.—About four thousand
troops including Nimm's Boston battery, will
march from Snow Hill, Maryland, into Accom

Accomac is prepared to array itself for the
Union, but Northampton shows fight.
the following proclamation from Gen. Dix
has been sent in advance of the expedition :
To the People of Accomac and Northampton Counties,
The military fordeS of the United States are
about to enter your counties as a part of the
Union. They will go among you as friends and
with the earnest hope that they may not by your
own acts be forced to become enemies. They
will invade no rights of person or property. On
the contrary your laws, your institutions and
your usages will be scrupnou.sly respected.
there need be no fear that the quitude of
any fireside will be disturbed unless dis
turbance is caused by yourselves. Special
directions have been given not to inter
fere with the condition of any persons
held to domestic service, and in order that there
may be no ground for mistake or pretext for
Misrepresentation, the commanders of the regi
tnents and corps have been instructed not to
permit any such persons to come within
their, lines. The command of the expedi
tion is entrusted to Brigadier-General
Henry H. Lockwood, of Delaware, a State
identical in some of the distinctive features of
social organization with your own. Portions of
his force came from counties in Maryland. bor
dering on one of yours. From him and from
them you may be assured of the sympathy of
near neighbors as well as friends, if you do not
repel it by hostile resistance or attack. Their
mission is to assert the authority of the United
States to re-open your intercourse with the loyal
States, and especially with Maryland which has
just proclaimed her devotion to the Union by
the most triumphant vote in her political
annals, to restore to commerce its accustomed
guide by re-establishing the light on your coa,t,
to afford you a free export fur the products of
your labor, and a •free ingress fur the necessa
ries and comforts of life which you require in
exchange, and in a word to put an end to the
embarrassments and restrictions brought
upon you by a causeless and unjustifia
ble rebellion. If the calamities of in
testine war which are desolating other dis
trictsPof Virginia and have already crimsoned
her fields with fraternal blood fall upon you,
it will not be the fault of the Government; it
asks only that its authority may be recogn zed.
it sends among you a force too strong to
be successfully opposed, a force which
cannot be resisted in any other spirit than that
of wantonness and maglignity. If there
are any among you who, rejecting all over
tures of friendship, thus provoke retalia
tion and' draw down upon . themselves 'conse
quences which the government is most anx
ious to avert, to their account must be
laid the blood which may be shed
and the desolation which may be brought upon
peaceful homes. On all who are thus reckless
of the obligations of humanity and duty, and
on all who are found in arms, the severest pun
ishment warranted by the laws of war will be vie
ited. To those who remain in the quiet pursuit of
their domestic occupations the public authori
ties assure all they can givepeace, freedom
from annoyance, protection from foreign and
nternal enemies, a guarantee of all constitu
tional and legal rights and the blessings of a
just and parental government.

The Seizure of a British Steamer.
[From the .New York Herald.
Very important information, under date of
November 12, is received from Holme's Hole,
relative to the seizure of a British steuner. It
appears that the brig Manzoni, Captain Colson,
had arrived at that port from Cardenas, Cuba,
after a passage of twelve days.
She reports a large British steamer having
been taken by a United States frigate and car
ried into Key West. The Englishman tried to
pass himself off as one of her Majesty's war
steamers, and refused to be examined by the
frigate. But a show of force by the latter
brought him to his senses. The steamer was
found to be loaded with guns and ammunition
for Secessia. At the last news from Key West
they had taken out five thousand muslxtts.
The officer of the Mauzoni does not give any
particulars relative to the name of the seized
craft, but from very good authority we may be
led to believe that she is the British steamer
Fingall, which cleared from Scotland under
very suspicious circumstances. The European
Times a short time since reproduced the follow
ing somewhat suspicious statement from a
The steamer Fingal is announced to have
cleared at that port recently for "Madeira and
the West Coast of Africa," with a cargo of
munitions of war valued at £49,000. It is diffi
cult to believe that 11,341 tithe, 459..000 cart._
ridges, 500 Babies, a quantity of wrought leather
e•rts,-EV-Vcu. t slid!, four pieces of artillery,
and so forth, are destined for negroes. African
trade guns are not usually rifles, and it is just
possible that our Greenock contemporary has,
by a slip of the pen, substituted "Madeira and
the West Coast of Africa" for "the southern
States of North America."
Taking these facts into consideration with
those reported by the Manzoni, there is certain
ly a very great amount of probability in the
supposition that the vessel that should have
gone to the "West Coast of Africa" has been
found in an entirely different region, and one
where she could not have easily drifted to
during the recent storm. Her arms being con
traband of war can be added to those of the
Government, and, if very superior, may be put
to some practical use.
BOSTON, Nov. 16
The Manzoni that brought the intelligence
of the sAzure of the British steamer, also re
ports that Captain CoxsAer, of the Jcff. Davis
notoriety, was also at Caidenas, in charge of
another privateer (a steamer). He, Captain
Coxseter, fell in with Captain Havener, for
merly of the Mary E. Thompson, at Cardenas.
They recognized each other, and Captain C.
told Captain H. to look out or he would be
overhauled again. it would be as well for
Captain Coxseter to look after his own safety in
addition to warning others.
The Arch Traitors Caught.
From the Phthdaphia Alo, cf ;am% ay.
Except the capture of Port Royal, we have
had no such good news as that we have the
pleasure of announcing, to day, to the readers
of ti,e Bulletin. The capture of John Slidell
and James R. Mason. the pretended Ministers
of the pretended Southern Confederacy, to
England and France, is equal to a great victory.
There is scarcely any one of the traitors of
the South that has pelf rmed a more wicked
and insidious part than John Slidell, the ex-
Senator from Louisiana. And yet, his treason
hardly su. passes that of James M. Mason, the
ex Seuator ,rous Viririuia ; who, while pretend
ing loyalty and receiving pay ai a Senator of
the United states, was plotting for the over
thro .v of the Government, at the very time,
too, when the people of Virginia had voted de
cidedly for the Union.
These two notable political villians are now
prisoners on board of au Americ .n man-of war.
and will soon arrive in New York. Their cap
ture defeats the clever scheme for offering to the
two leading European powers a iormal diploma
tic representation of the rebel government. It
relieves England and France of the embarrass
ment of deciding between their cotton sympa
thies and their sense of duty to a friendly power
like the United States. It giv, s us an advan
tage that may be classed with that of the seizure
of a southern port ; for it proves that though
the blockade may be imperfect close to Charles
ton, it is rendered efficient by the activity of our
war steamers in other waters.
These two contraband diplomatists appear to
have been taken by Captain Charles Wilkes, of
the San Jacinto, from-a British steamer in the
channel of the Bahamas. At the time of writ
ing this, we have no particulars of the means
employed for obtaining possession of them. /t
was a bold exercise of the right of visit ; but
not half so insolent as some that England has
favored us with at various times. We have no
apprehensions of its causing any serious trou
ble with England. Indeed, the ministers of
that country may really thank Captain Wilkes
for relieving them of a very serious responsibili
ty--that of accounting for what might easily
have been construed by us as an act of hostility.
War should not the slaves of South Carol!.
tia secede from masters who were so ready to
secede from the Government ? The poor ne
groes flee from the lash and the overseer ; the
rich planters deserted a Government which had
protected and cherished them.
