She was close to the Shore in charge of a sentry who fled at our approach and alarmed Tho Camp. She had a new suit of sails and All the furniture Complete in the Cabin which a gathered together and fired producing u Beautiful conflagration but unfortunately revealed our Jiosi Tion to the enemy who commenced a spirited fire from both Hanks of that narrow and tortuous Stream intermingled with opprobrious epithets until we were beyond their Range. Far the Union Ami journal. South Limington Seminary. This in Tho South Wrt of the town of Limington in the Northern part of York county and about 22 Utilee West of Portland. It is located entirely in a Rural District. It has maintained an honorable rank among academical institutions for tie last ten years. Away from the temptations and contamination of the City and of Tho Village it is peculiarly a la pud for such As wish for a retired and quiet school. In my experience 11s nil instructor for a nuni Lier of years i think i have never known a private school where the people Are so generally interested in its Success a the people of South Limington Are in the Prosperity of Tho Seminary. A Well sustained freewill Baptist Church to located there rev. Charles Lurlin is its present a water. 1�?Trof. Albert g. Munson is the present principal of the Seminary. The school numbers this fall Between forty and fifty pupils. Several of them have left in order to enlist in the grind army who Are going to conquer an existence for our moved country. . M. Iii Soll would i into the War if his health would a inuit. To such As desire a school for their son and daughters where Good moral and religious influence predominate we would commend this institution. . M. Is an accurate thorough and elegant scholar As we know from personal experience. We Lute Long known him and we Cun so Peak with Confidence of his ability As a teacher and of his excellent moral and religious traits As a Man. Frequently the associations and temptations of the City and the vill age prove fatal to Tho morals of Young minds. If a rents when about to Send their children away to school More generally selected a Small quiet school 111 some Rural District instead of our larger institutions of learning much More Benefit would to derived therefrom.

For one Hundred Days previous to the Battle of Waterloo her sex Peoebe were five millions of dollars a of this vast sum a urge proportion was a Pended on the Oun Tient of Europe while our entire expenditure is at Home. If for thirteen Yean England could expend one million three honoured thousand dollars a Day abroad cannot we do it for one two a w int Roa the from St. Louis concur in representing that mrs. Fremont is my to actively engage a in defending her bust a mls reputation against the assaults of his enemies declaring her hatred of them in no tinted measure and with the fierce vindictive intensity of her father. Indeed she seem to surpass even him in the ferocity of her tumult. She a com snied her Luis land to Jefferson City and reviewed the Tny be As they filed off on their March toward Sedalia. Her oldest boy some twelve fourteen year of age wore a lieutenants and a younger one a sergeant the oldest is to form a member of his fathers military household. Indeed it would not be surprising if Jessie constituted herself n member of Tho staff for she has been with her Husland on More than one perilous venture. Her presence would insure Energy and rapidity of movement even if Fremont had Ever exhibited any lock of those qualities. Army correspondence. Cari Lvon Baltimore md., oct. 19,1861. J .

The voice of Tho people throughout the North should have convinced Virginia that her rights were held As sacred in new England As they were in Alabama and that no Ono should Jire sume to tamper with them in the least but thu weak and degenerate old Dominion was frightened then and is All the Moro frightened now. Tho Federal government is punishing Virginia and the rest of the rebel states for Tho Samo breach of order that John Brown was judged guilty of Viz an attempt by Force to subvert Tho rightful Law of the land.

No great disaster ass it fallen the National cause and its general aspects afford solid ground of Hope and Confidence for the future but a series of Little unexpected successes by Tho rebels have vexed and dispirited to people and proportionally raised the courage of the enemy. A successful attack us non our Fleet in Tho Mississippi by a in lick expedition from new Orleans of which we havens yet imperfect and Urc Lithio accounts Tho escudo of a Steamer from Charleston carrying Confederate minister to France and England a Surprise attack on our forces on Santa Rosa Island off in Ennaco is by the rebels inflicting considerable damage the renewed obstruction of the in of Tominc some slight successes of Tho rebels in Missouri with Tho Small Prospect that Gen. Fremont will Ito Able to compel them to a general engagement the Retreat of our Forcee in Western Virginia and Tho increasing Prospect that tha enemy in Virginia will Only fight behind their entrenchments and Eliut there will consequently by no decisive action there and no material Chango in Tho position of things around Washington during the season these Are some of the unpleasant facts and features of the ramp Ign presented during Tho week. In the new und formidable coast expedition about starting however in a Brilliant and successful Little Buttle near Ilarij Iory ferry and in Tho effectual Check Given to Tho a cowls in Kentucky to Havo some compensation. Washington and Vicinity. It is evident from Tho result of Tho re Cote noise Juncos in ado by general Mecl Elluna i forces for the Ernst few Days that the lint of the rebel Urray Uro broken up add that the whole front has changed its Jiosi Tion. That they have Alan done ice Surg is certain and withdrawn from Vienna Fairfax court House and Annu Dule so that their front now extends from Aquia Creek on the to Tousic to Bull run and Manassas Junction with Fairfax and can Truville occasionally Occo pied As outposts. A Large Lindy of their forces has been also thrown for uni in Tho direction of shipping Point where they maintain an efficient Battery. This movement is probably to protect them Elvra from an attack by to Union army in that direction. Somo a pensions were Felt in Washington that the main body of Tho rebels was about to be transferred to Kentucky for Winter quarters a the resources of Virginia were inadequate to the maintenance of so vast a Force in which event Tho theatre of War would necessarily be removed from its present site in front of general Lolland a army to a now Point. It was said that the Rel Tel troop Are very much discontented with their present inactivity that they Are unwilling to make their Winter quarters in Vire Ginia and demand either to be sent Home to March into the state of Kentucky whore they expect to find abundance of Comfort for Tho approaching severe season. Till Potomac. The Potomac appear at last to have been nearly closed by Tho rebels to All except our Vency a of War All merchant Craft being afraid to run the Gauntlet of their batteries. Float of vessels with government stores Are lying in the lower part of the River afraid to venture up and on saturday As the Steamer Resolute was going up with two vessels in Tow Tho hawser attached to Sofir. Fairfax broke and she drifted in Shore. The rebels put off in boats and captured tie Schooner which was Laden cd with Hay an article very much wanted in Washington at the Presont time. Most of the new batteries Are placed above the Range of the Guna of our steamers and cannot be silenced except by a land attack. The motives assigned for tha planting of Beao batteries is two fold. The stoppage of navigation and an ultimate intention to threw secession troops Over into Maryland. As the matter now stands two inferences can be drawn from the course pursued by the government. We May conclude that an occasional shot fired at our vessels in paying an Etna go on the navigation of the River for a Day two is not thought to be of so much consequence As it is to let the rebels Divide their strength in men and guns be Gen. Lardeo is rej jutted in Ono dispatch to in in command at Bowling Green and in another to to on Tho March to juin i Rice in Missouri who is hotly pressed by Fremont. It is to reconcile these contradictory accounts and there is an equal Chance that Nono of them Are True. If .

At Tho latest accounts from Missouri Gen Fremont wus at Warsaw a writing the completion of Tho Bridge Over Tho Osage it is Rejrat Rcd that Price and Al Cculloch Havo joined their forces and returned to Osceola where they intend to make a stand against Fremont.
