Thirty days ought to close up this little job on our hands. "OLD besides making the best President we have had since Jack- son, is beginning to shine as a military man. The expedition on Norfolk seems to have been made under his immediate direction. He has been at Fortress Monroe several days. He se- lected the place for landing at "Wil- loughby Point, accompanied tho expe- dition, and was among the first on shore- tremendous gunboat conflict near Fort Wright, is reported, in which one of the iron-clad rams built by the rebels, being copiously drenched with scalding water, was sunk, with all onboard. sharp skirmish near Corinth has taken place, but there had been no general engagement no to Saturday noon. is not taken yet, altho' a telegram to that effect caused a great excitement in Chicago day before yes- terday. However it doubtless will be taken soon. Milwaukee, May midnight dispatches bring Pittsburg dates to Sunday. It is now known that Lovell has reached Corinth from New Orleans with men. It is believed that Beauregard is preparing his army for a desperate struggle. Our preparations are being made on a grand scale, and nothing is wanting on our part to win the contest. fire at Troy, N. Y., on Satur- day will rank as one of the most de- structive conflagrations on record. occurs to us that much of this can and ought to be done, by encouragements given to commercial enterprise by con- gressional enactments, by just and equal laws for the protection alike of all the branches of home industry. The Agricultural and manufacturing pursuits of the country, form the basis of an interchange of commodities with other nations, so that to protect and encourage commerce; it is necessary to protect fostering care those branches of industry which have hitherto been al- most wholly neglected. .While cotton has been looke 1 after with pe- ing starting the march with at least forty pounds, and when 4 o'clock comes you will feel it to be one hundred. We are to start from here to-morrow there are various rumors as to our des- say Memphis, others say Corinth in Mississippi; it is all guess work, but from my observation, by looking on the map I think we are going to Little Rock, Arkansas, as there arc certainly some of Price's ar- my there trying to hold it as a place of retreat, for the rebels that are now at Memphis. They .have possession of the Arkansas river. Curtis is sorne- THE PBOOBS8S 07 THE WAX. The friends of the Union have good cause for gratification with the present progress of the war for the Union. Corinth and Memphis are tho principal strongholds which the rebels now possess, and there is every prospect that these will soon be cap- tured. The plan of the enemy aecins now to be to fallback into more southern and sickly parts; of the country, hop- ing that if the Union troops follow them there the yellow fever will de- stroy them faster than rebel bullets. But Gen. Hunter is evidently prepar- ing for southern and sickly emergen- cies, by arming the negroes to occupy the more unhealthy locations around Port Royal; the same course will prob- ably be adopted in the neighborhood of New Orleans. The most of the hard fighting, we think, will be done within the next three or four weeks. There will be considerable trouble with the roving bands of rebels and robbers who infest Missouri and Ten- nessee, as the rebel army will break up into squads of from fifty to to five hun- dred, and prowl over the country in a kind of guerrilla warfare, to murder and rob the Union men wherever they can find them unprotected. But these ruffians will have to be disposed of by shooting and hanging, before the war will be finally think howev- er that the beginning of the end is in sight. H.

Cincinnati, reeeived your long for most ncglbb'tcd, so far as protection or encouragement is concerned. But with the most assidious care at home, it is essential to protect our commerce on the for this we believe that the wisdom and prudence of Congress is fully adequate and that whatever just and equal system that body shall see fit to adopt, will be cheerfully sustained by the people. It would be quite useless to create the means, and basis of commerce at home and leave it unprotected in its necessary transit to foreign countries, or even upon our own waters. That the1 U. S. have all the material genius and energy to make it the great- est commercial nation on the globe has been sufficiently demonstrated. But with these, there must be a correspon- ding and suitable protection, by the enactment, and adoption of a proper system, whether it be by arming mer- chant vessels or increasing our national navy. Under the circumstances of tho rap- idly increasing wants of our maratime interests, it occurs to us that to allow the merchant, marine, to be placed in a condition of self-defense would be much cheaper, and at the same time, more effectual at for sudden than to increase largely the national navy. ind welcome Remedies a and hasten to return you a NEW STORE NEW D.
