Distributed amongst All the claimants j for Louisville about Midnight i Liberty let t a ran up by Quot a amounts Only to is 6d a head per week. Many of course Are living for less. The 1 s 6d is not a tver i Money the Relief Cut a ing their Bounty in Coffee. Milter distribute read soup and soon. Indebted _ the London times has been Send ing a special correspondent into the manufacturing districts to ascertain the truth in regard to the suffering and privation there growing out of a stoppage of Trade consequent upon the american War the loss of the Cotton i Supply &.c. His first report appeared in the times of the 26th ult. From him we learn that a in Preston alone there Are 23,000 persons receiving parochial and charitable Relief. The population is Only 83,000, so that More than one fourth Are steeped to the lips in misery. In addition to the 23,000, there Are thousands endeavouring to subsist on Hal wages or less than half. Half time docs not imply half pay for the use of Surat Cotton renders it impossible for the hands to earn their customary wages. The amount lost to the opera lives by the failure of employment is calculated at �13,000 a week. The slight compensation to the suffering amounts to Little More than �1,000 a week so that in Point of fact �1 is made to do the duty of �13. In one court says the reporter 1 found a poor woman with three children whose husband had three Days Parish work and an extra Relief of 3s., in All 6s. Week for the five. A fall their furniture was gone but a table and two chairs and All five slept in one bed which was placed in a dark Hole with not a Ray of Light finding its Way into it such As we should hardly think too Good to store coals in. All their clothes had been pawned and most bitterly of All did the poor woman lament a Good Black suit of her husband which was a a in for 10s, and which they could never Hope to another family of six people in the same court had to live on is. A week that is is. 2d. Per week or 2 Jil. A Day for each. A in another House a he says �?o1 saw a sight which will be before eyes for Many a Day to a it was a Little Low Stone floored room its Only furniture a table a Stool and a bed. On the bed was a stretched object 1 could not Tell whether it was a Man or a woman worn to the Bones a very Skeleton fact her body covered with putrid sores with not a rag on Here literally naked but for the course Sheet which was spread Over or. The bed on which she Lay was a rough Brown sacking stuffed with a handful of Straw. She had lain there i done to know How Long her husband bad lain there before her and died on the same bed. A she was the Mother of two girls factory operatives who earned or were relieved with a few shilling i forget How Many for i own i was too much shocked at what 1 saw to listen to figures. Even among a somewhat better class he continues the suffering is hardly less extreme and sad were the talks to which i had to listen of the gradual front Comfort to utter destitution. In one Little House huddled All together was a family of eleven All of which had been Twenty eight weeks out of work and for fifteen of these they had existed on something less than is per head. The Relief committee had just raised their pittance to 16s for the eleven. Before the bad times the family earnings had been about �3 15s, and they had had to part with nearly All their furniture. A Man Bis wife three daughters and two sons had Only one bed among them and Only a dirty Blanket and a dirty quilt one to be under and the other Over them. Of course the children slept on the Bare boards. The reporter illustrates the condition of a rather Superior class As follows a hut perhaps the strongest illustrations of the distress actually chargeable on the present crisis Are the cases of respectable men who have hitherto kept themselves in Comfort and endeavoured to provide for old age and infirmity. There wa9 no difficulty in finding plenty of these. At one House i visited a Young couple not Long married who Between them had earned Over �2 a week. They had both been out of work for some time and when their savings were exhausted they had at last applied to the Parish. Their present income was exactly 5s. Cd. A week out of which their rent was 2s. 7d., leaving them 3s a week for subsistence. Another Young couple Hail 2s a week from the Relief committee but living with their Parent they had no rent to pay. In the next House there were four grown up people living whose United incomes amounted to 9s, out of which they had to pay 2s rent. Little further on i came on an overseer with a family of five children. His salary had been 29s. A week and thou be had been Cut of work More than a Twelvemonth he had managed to struggle on until about a fortnight ago when All his resources being exhausted he had been compelled to apply for Relief and was ,irom one source or another about 9s a week an old woman and two daughters both of them Over Twenty one years of age one employed half time the other receiving Relief had among them 4s 6d a week. A highly respectable Reed Hook maker whose Wile cried bitterly she told . Her Story is earning with the Aid of one of her boys 7s a week which has to keep four of them by a dredging stones irom the bed of the River. Thuv had pawned All their clothes and much of their furniture before applying to the Relief commit from the Almute intelligencer kept. 20. Late from Kentucky.

Gen. Lee in the following address has very happily stated the. Purposes of our government and the people towards the stale of Maryland. The presence of our army in the heart of that site rendered explanations necessary and it has been made in a manner which allays every resentment and kindles the profoundest gratitude in the bosom of every Marylander who loves his state or values his own Liberty. The despotism which has crushed the people of Maryland is without a parallel in the annals of civilized history. Whatever the course her people May wish to pursue whatever Choice of future relations they May desire to make their first duty and the first impulse of manliness is to be she should not make her Choice with Fetters upon her limbs her Sovereign dignity demands that iteration should be unconstrained and should he free from even lie appearance of constraint. So far from this being her present con Dilion the succinct enumeration tyrannies and outrages presented in Gen. Leeds address tells of a people ground into the very dust under the a reel of despotic on violently established and Lor hostile purposes. So tar from Maryland being a free Republican Commonwealth there is not a province in the Czar s whole Dominion that ought not to pity her terrible condition. Lincoln has proved to her worse than Czar or Sultan. So far As our operations Are to affect the people of Maryland we go not there to replace one Yoke with another. We propose to restore Maryland to her Reed it a and her free choices nothing More. This fact so Well stated by general Lee discloses the difference wide is the heavers Between the character of the two governments now at War.

Although no official confirmation of the reported capture of the Federal Garrison at harpers ferry reached this City yesterday no one doubts fora moment its reliability such were the plans adopted for the accomplishment of that object that every one feels the utmost Confidence in the report. Pas sengers who came Down on the Cen trial train yesterday afternoon state that the report Hail reached Gordonsville that the whole Garrison some eight thousand in number surrendered on sunday morning besides which our forces captured about one thousand negroes. An officer who came through by Winchester says that before he left that town on monday morning a courier arrived bringing the intelligence that we had captured on sunday All the Strong positions around harpers ferry except one and about five thousand of the enemy but that they were yet in Possession of the main fortification which was held by some three thousand men. We do not know whether ibis main fort is on the Virginia Side of the Potomac or on the Maryland Heights. We suppose however that it must be on Tho Heights for with them in our Possession it would be impossible for the enemy to hold the town As it is within easy Range of Shell from that Point. The Cann Nading on sunday is represented to have been very heavy and which were Strong and consisted a f very formidable outer works enclosing a quadrangular furl with glaces and redoubts and Well mounted with nine he Ivy pieces of artillery.
