la' Messrs. MATHER & ABBOTT, No. 335
Broadway, New-York, are duly authorized to
act for us in soliciting advertisments, &c.
or The Directors of the Pennsylva
nia Railroad Company have unanimous
ly elected i TnomAs A. SCOTT, Esq., Vice
President of the Company. In future,
therefore, his time will be devoted to the
management of our great artery of trade.
Mr. SCOTT returns to Philadelphia in
consequence of the departure for Europe
of Mr J. E. TEromsom, President of the
company. Mr. SCOTT resigned his posi
tion as Assistant Secretary of War
several weeks since, to take effect on the
let of June. His services in the organi
zai.bn of our army have been of great
value to the Government.
sr When the confederates evacuated
Williamsburg, Gen. Magruder brought
away six women who were suspected of
being friendly to the Union cause, in
order to. guard against their giving in
formation. After being held captives
two or three days they were set at liber
ty, and arrived at West Point on Wed
nesday last. Where they stated to Mu,
Franklin that their persons bad been
violated by Gen. Magruder and other
officers high in rank.
er In Cazenova, New York, recently,
a district school gave an exhibition, em
bracing a matinee scene in which a de
serter was to be shot. The act was pre
formed, and the lad who acted the part
(a son of Rev. E. Swan) fell dead npon
the stage. It was found that in loading
the gan a brass ferrule on the ramrod
had slipped from its place and remained
in the barrel.
eir General Fremont has decided to
hang guerrillas and bushwhackers in case
that he is not interfered with. It is
said that when a guerrilla falls into the
hands of his soldiers, the usual report of
the guard is, "that the prisoner tried to
escape and was shot," or that "a gun ac
cidentally went off and killed him.
fir Speaking of the effect of the war
upon domestic manufactures in Phila
delphia, the North American of that
city says, "most manufacturing firms
are operating as largly as ever, and not
a few of them, instead of suffering a de
pression from the war, have been more
hurried during the last six months with
orders than at , any former period in their
Gar Mrs. Mary C. Thome, the last
surviving witness of the execution of
General Andre, died in New York on
the 10th inst., at the age of 92. Her
father was a quartermaster of the Con
tinental army, and was stationed in the
highlands when Andre's capture and ex
ecution took place.
sr Gen. Burnside recently sezied all
but one of the town commissioners of
Edenton, N. C., and held them as hos
tages for the return of aUnion man who
had been captured by the rebels while
on a visit to his wife, in town. it is al
leged that the commissioners connived
at his capture,
Car A gentleman who drew $l3OO
from the treasury department at Wash
ington, on Friday, was swindled out of
it by a sharper who pretended to be a
clerk in the department, and got it into
his possession by representing there was
a mistake made in counting it. He
made good his escape..
er Senator Wilson, of Mass., stated
in the United States Senate on Saturday
last, that there had been a list prepared
of men in the army, and the aggregate
was 617,654, but we had a large number
at home on.leave and sick, and he sup
posed we had about 500,000 effective
men in the field.
or The municipal regulation in New
Orleans punishes with imprisonment in
the Calaboose, women of the town found
in the streets after nightfall, or convers
ing from the. windows with persons out
side. This,,probably, is the punishment
inflicted by Gen. Butler on theilinstilters
of our troops.
65- The appraisers on Colonel Sam.
Colt's estate make the whole amount of
his property foot up over three millions
of dollars. His property in the Western
States and Texas, in England, and his
lead mines in South America, will pro
bably add another million.
Imo' There is a strong movement pro
gressing among the shopkeepers in Can
ada to drive the. British shilling out of
circulation. They have resolved to take
that 'coin for only twenty-four cents, and
they have received promises from the
banks that all that are deposited shall be
sent back to Y.ngland.
ar Among the more recent seizures
at New Orleans, are the State Arsenal,
filled with ordinance stores and ammu
nition, and the residence of John Sli
dell. At the latter place Mrs. Beaure
gard and her mother were found in oc
cupation. Slidell presented the place
to Mrs. Beauregard on his departure
for England, Gen. Butler speaks in
terms of warm praise of the dignified
manner in which the wife of the brave
but misguided commander of the rebel
army treated the officers and soldiers
who took possession of the house. As
soon as the General learned that Mrs.
Beauregard was living in the house, he
withdrew the guard.
Illy Mrs. Rose N. Greenhow, Mrs.
Morris, and Mrs. Baxley, three prison
ers confined in the Old Capital prison
for several months past, on the charge
of giving aid and information to the
enemy, have just been sent to Fortress
Monroe under guard for transfer to the
rebel lines. Mrs. Greenhow was arrest
ed some months since, and for a time
was confined in her own residence.—
They all steadily refused to take the
oath, or accept their parole, so they
were removed to the rebel lines.
gir There is some talk of arming the
negroes in the South. The Georgia
Confederacy says : " We must 'fight the
devil with fire; by arming our negroes
to fight the Yankees. There is no
doubt that in Georgia alone we could
pick up ten thousand negroes that would
rejoice to meet fifteen thousand Yan
kees in deadly conflict. We would be
willing almost to risk the fate of the
South in such an encounter in an open
as Fort Hamilton, as announced in
general orders from the War Depart
ment, some time ago, is now a chaplian
post. There is, however, no chapel
church, or other suitable place for public
worship, but it is reported that one
will be built as soon as possible. A
church and proper burial ground are
much required. The present burial
ground looks like a deserted potato
The Memphis Argus asks why,
in the name of all infamous, was the
Merrimac—the pride of the' South, and
the terror of the North, and the wonder
and admiration of the world—destroyed
at Craney Island ; when, if nothing
more, she could have rua up either the
James or York river, and waited the
approach of the Union gunboats? Her
destruction looks like a terrible blunder,
eir The National and American Bank

Government work, and so great is the

to Boston and Philadelphia to have

ar Gen. Harney is living very quiet
and retired in St. Louis, having recently

SINGULAR FANCY.—Tho West Chester
Republican records the death of an old
man who has kept his coffin in his house
for thirty years. Until within a few
years he has resided on a small farm
three miles from West Chester. On
one occasion he cut down a fine walnut
tree growing on his place, had it sawed
into boards, and the coffin was made
from a portion of the lumber. Without
communicating his purpose to any one,
be took the boards to a cabinet maker,
had the coffin made, and one day it came
home while he was absent, causing con
siderable consternation in his family.—
He was rather an eccentric person, bat
a kind neighbor and a good citizen.—
Last week this uncomfortable reminder
of death was brought forth, varnished,
and he was carried in it to the grave.
