DISEASES OF IMPRIIDENCE.—When the misguided
and imprudent votary of pleasure duds he has imbibed
the seeds of this painful disease, it too often happens that
an ill-timed genre of shame or dread of discovery deters
him from applying to those who, from education awl re
spectability can alone, befriend him, delaying till the con.
stitutional symptoms of this horrid disease make their
appearance, affecting the head, throat, nose, skin, .t.c,
progressing on with frightful rapidity, till ath mita a
period to bin dreadful sufferings by sending him to "that
bourne from whence no traveler returns." It is a mel
ancholy fact that thousands fall victims to this terrible
disease,_ owing the uuskilfuluess of ignorant pretends
era, who, by the use of that deadly pliAoll, mercury, rule
the constitution and mate the rrnidoe of life miserable.

Lecture on Lincoln.
The annual message of John Letcher, Gov

of that State on the 6th instant, after abusing
Secretary Cameron for his proposition to use
the contrabands in army service, recites the re
bel indictment against the President in this
"The history of Abraham Lincoln is a histo
ry of repeated injuries and umrpations, all
having for their object the establishment of an
absolute tyranny over these" Confederate
To this end "he has affected to render the
military independent of and superior to the
He has combined with Pierpont and other
traitors in Virginia "to subject us to a juris
diction foreign to our constitution and unac
knowledged by our laws, giving assent to their
acts of pretended legislation."
He is endeavoring to quarter "large bodies
of armed troops amongst us."
He is endeavoring to cut off' "our trade with
al: parts of the world."
He is endeavoring to impose "taxes upon us
without our consent."
He is endeavoring to deprive us, "in many
cases, of the benefits of trial by jury."
"He has abdicated government here by de
claring us out of his protection and waging war
"He has plundered our seas, ravished our
coasts, burned our towns and destroyed the
lives of our people,"
"lie is at this time transporting large bodies
of mercenaries to complete the work of death,
desolation and tyranny already begun with cir
cumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely par
alleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally
unworthy the head of a civilized nation."
Governor Letcher is a wag.
General Butler's Expedition.
The Boston Journal of Monday evening says:
"We said on Saturday that the orders for the
delay of the steamer Constitution might be
countermanded within a few hours, and such
was the case. Three companies of Col. French's
regiment had been taken to Fort Independence,
with a considerable amount of camp equipage
and stores; then, about two-and-a-half o'clock,
orders came on board to stup further operations,
and soon after, to re-embark the troops, and
sail without delay to Fortress Monroe. Tele
graphic despatches were sent to intercept Gen
eral Butler, who had just lest Washington, and
for Colonel Shepley and Quartermaster Jose,
who had gone to Lowell to arrange matters
at Camp Chase for the proper accomodation of
the Twelfth Maine regiment. The greatest hi
larity prevailed on board the Constitution at
the reception of the news, and hearty cheers
were given by the troops, who, tired of waiting,
and long to be off for .Dixie."
EXTENSIVE FORGERIES IN BOSTON.—bast Sat
urday evening officer Dunn, of the Chief's of
fice, arrested a man named George A. Tirrell,
for uttering an altered or forged draft, drawn
by the Brighton Market Bank upon the Bank
of Mutual Bedemption, payable to the order of
Eq. Tile draft was originally
drawn for $25, but it is alleged that the words
" twenty-five" were extracted from the paper
by chemical process, and the words " three
thousand" substituted instead. It is further
alleged that Tirrell bought the draft for $25
last ktiday, stating that he wished to semi it
to New York, but that instead of so doing he
presented the same draft with the amount al
tered to $3,000 at the Bank of Mutual liedeuip
ton, and drew that sum upon it. He was
taken before the Police Court to-day, and, in
default of bail for $6,000, was committed for
examination on Friday next. In addition to
the above, it is stated that two or three forged
or altered drafts were presented at different
banking houses during the latter part of last
week, and paid as follows : Blake Brothers,
$5,000 ; Brewster, Sweet_& Co., $4,600 ; Bur
nett, Drake & Co,, $2,500.--Boston lranacript,
SOME OF THE VOLUNTEERS from Western Vir
ginia, who have recently visited the homes in
this vicinity, tell us that the Government is fic•
tuadly supporting the families of Rebels who
have gone into the secesh army. While these
fellows are thus doing alt they can to destroy
the Government and the country, their wives
and families, though open and abusive Seces
sionists as can be found, are kept from starving
by the Government agents. The worst of the
story is that this kindness is all wasted; their
hatred is not mollified iu the least, and the wo
men return the kindness by charging ten times
its value for every service,
while the guerilla
bands to which the men belong, murcter any
Union stragglers or pickets as remorselessly as
they would kill snakes. This is a pretty hard
trial to the patience of men, and that they
sometimes retaliate by destroying property for
which such wretches have the impudence to de
mand special guards and protection froth our
Union 'officers, is not strange. We are carrying
too much weight in this war of one-sided char
ity and consideration of traitors.—Patthurg Dis
THE Barrisa Moors ROIL CANADA.—The Port
land Argus says: -
" We understand that the Forest City, of the
Portland and Boston line, has been engaged to
communicate with the Hibernian when she ar
rives off this port, and to hind her mails and
passengers, if the commander of the troops on
board does not feel authorized to avail himself
of the permission tendered by the United States
authorities to land and pass through our terri
tory with his troops, and we do not expect he
will feel authorized to do so. Probably, there
fore, the Forest City will bring the mails and
passenger, and the Hibernian will proceed im
mediately to St. John, N. B:"
SHARP, BUT SUGGESTIVE.-It may be a severe
lesson Congress has to learn, namely : to mind
its own business and let co-ordinate branches
of the Government alone. Its insolent assump
tion of power and impertinent intermeddling,
are becoming intolerable.

FROM WASHINGTON I
Twenty-sir Rebel Batteries at Ma-
The Committee of Ways and Means had the
direct tax bill under consideration, but without
coming to any conclusion.
Information, believed to be trustworthy, has
been received here to the effect that the rebels
have twenty-six well constructed forts de
fending their main position at Manassas Junc
Doings on the Western Border.
A letter from Lane's Kansas brigade says :
Some days ago six men were shot by order of a
drum head court-martial. They were accused
of murdering two of our soldiers ie the must
brutal manner. The evidence was conclusive,
and they were condemned without a dissenting
voice. A detail was made, and they were led
out to a gopher mound, half a mile from camp.
A grave was dug, over which they stood. At
the first volley four fell dead. A private sol
dier then stepped forward, and with his pistol
despatched the other two. They confessed the
murder before they died. We have four more
in custody, charged with murdering and rob
bir-g a Union mania Missouri. They will prob
ably share the same fate.
You have probably heard of the b,urning of
Papinsville and Bader last month, but cannot
know why it was done. Col. Montgomery was
informed of the approach of a large rebel force
upon Fort Scott. As we had but 600 men, he
resolved to practice the same tactics which
were so successful in stopping Rains at Dog
wood last October. He despatched 180 men at
night to Papinsville, with orders to burn it,
and then proceed to Butler and serve it in the
same mauner. The first was ace ,mplished
without much difficulty ; but between that
place and Butler was a camp of rebel recruits,
whom it was desirable to scatter; This was
accomplished in gallant style, with a loss on
our side of five, and on theirs of sixteen. The
command then burned Butler, and every secesh
farm-house on the route, and returned to camp
with a large number of horses, mules, cattle
and military stores.
Yesterday four companies went over into
Missouri on a scouting and foraging expedition.
Tney will not return till they have something
to relate. While the least movement on the
Potomac heralded in large type, we of the
western border, who are fighting every day,
bringing out Union families, avenging murders,
and striking wherever a rebel raises his head,
remain unnoticed. We have not yet received
my winter supplies, or means to erect winter
quarters, and though in active service for five
months, have not yet seen the visage of a
paymaster. Were the same thing to happen
to one of the petted regiments of the Potomac,
a mutiny would result. Nothing bat the con
fidence reposed in Gan. Lane and Col. Mont
gomery has kept this brigade from dissolving.
Many of the officers, even, have not seen a dol
lar for two months.

Cara°, Jan. 12.—Further advices concerning
the action between our gun-boats and those of
the rebels down the river, develop the fact that
three rebel gun-boats appeared in sight of bl
and No. 1, formed in line of battle, and opened
fire on our boats, which lay opposite the Island.
The Essex and St. Louis immediately opened
their guns upon them, when the rebels backed
out and retreated down the river, followed by
our gun-boats,which chased them under their
batteries below Belmont, disabling cone of the
rebel steamers there. Captain Porter, com
manding the Essex, enclosed in a bottle, at
tached to a buoy, the following challenge:
"Come out, you cowardly rebels, and show
your gun boats." The engagement lasted half
The four pickets shot near Bird's Point this
morning were assassinated by citizens, and not
by rebel cavalry, as reported in my previous
dispatch, in consequence of which Gen. Grant
has issued an order to General Paine, instruct
ing him to clean out the country for six miles
around Bird's Point, bring into camp all citizens
with their subsistence, requiring them to remain
under penalty of death, and that all parties
found within these prescribed limits are liable
to be shot.
Gen. Grant, with the balance of his expedi
tion, will wait reinforcements from St. Louis,
which have been delayed in consequence of the
fogs and the channel of the Mississippi being
blockaded by the steamer Arizona being
aground, for which reasons the St. Louis force
did not leave. •

INTEREST/NO TO SPORTSMEN. —Last winter an
experiment was tried by Mr. Peter Happaugh,
Colonel Babbit, J. L. Shafer, and other sporting
gentlemen of Sussex county, in the propaga
tion of quails in that section of New Jersey,
with the most satisfactory results. Although
only a limited supply of the birds was obtain
ed, the effect of saving them for breeding was
of the most decisive character ; for in every
locality where the quail were distributed in the
spring, full three times the number were found
in the fall so that the supply of these birds
the past season was greater than known there
for many years. Encouraged by the experi
ment of last year, the before-named gentlemen
have advertised tor five hundred living quails,
for turning out the ensuing swing, after the
snow shall have disappeared.—Newark (N. J.)

a committee of eminent swans, who reported
unanimously that the public reputation of Mr.
Maury was the work of writers who knew noth
