The arrivals of New York steamers within
the past tew days furnishing an abundance ot
late papers, have kept our columns replete
with news, uiucli of which is important and
Perhaps the most startling intelligence ot
all is the news of the departure of a large ex- i
pedition under command of General Weitzel,
whose point ot destination is somewhere j
along the coast of Texas The largest por- j
tiou of the fleet, comprising rifteen steamers,
sailed from Fortress Monroe on the Ist of
June, and is, probably, by this time at Mo
bile, where the fleet is to make a rendezvous.
As there cau he no rebel forces left in Tex
as since the surrender of Kirby Smith, we
should strongly incline to the belief that this
movement means Mexico, if the leading mil
itary m“u of the country were not, so far as
known, adverse to an enterprise in that di
rection. Stiii the posting of a force in Mexico
may be desirable for defense it not for offen
sive movements. The late boasts of the
trans-Mississippi rebel leaders concerning ex
pected aid from Mexico were not without
their warning to the government.
Governor Brown has had a long conference
with the President and is understood to be
released from arrest . This is another instance
of clemency in the executive to whom the
policy of relentless proscription has been
popularly attributed in the South.
General Kirby Smith is reported to have
made his escape to France through Mexico,
while Ex-Governor Smith, of Virginia has
taken to the mount tins near Staunton in that
State, where he undertakes to keep up a fight
to protect himsell, and not, he wishes to have
it understood, as a guerrilla leader. After
extensive migrations through the Confede
racy the “last ditch” seems to have fiually
attained a lofty attitude iu the Blue Ridge
FESTIVAL OJ BOARD THE “SEW HAMP
On the eveniug of June Gth, on board the
U. 8. Ship “New Hampshire" at Bay Point,
an entertainment was given by the officers
of the ship, to a select company of friends.
The pleasures ot the evening were inaugura
ted by the performances of a Martial Baud,
composed entirely of the men belonging to
the ship. Alter which occurred a ball, which
lasted till early next morning. The dancing
floor was on the main deck, and two bands
ol music played at intervals during the even
The ship was handsomely decorated with
flags, evergreens, lanterns, Ac., and the main
deck and quarter deck were enclosed in can
vass on the sides aud overhead, thus con
verting them into one vast ball-room.
The supper was one of the most acceptable
features ot the whole affair and was served
in the highest style of culinary art. Among
other distinguished persons we noticed were
Gen. Saxton, Staff and party, who came
down from Beaufort in a special boat—Geu.
M T. Littlefield and Maj. Thomas, Captain
Giilmore, Capt. Moorde, Capt. Kelly, of
Gen. Gillmore’s Staff, Capt. Seaver, Major
Sanders, Major Fleway, Major Sims, Surgeon
Weed, Capt. Hart, Capt. Colv, Lt.- Col. Rice,
and many others, both of the army and of
the navy whose names w r e cannot now recall.
There were many ladles present, so many
that we cayuot specify them by name, and
the whole allair passed off with the greatest
delight to all concerned, both invited and iu

THE SEW YORK VOLUNTEERS.
Savannah, Geo. Junk 7tb, 18(55.
/•Alitor of the Saruntmh lit raid: Sir, your NeW
York correspondent’s letter, published in this
morning's Herald, shows that the opinion of
a class of New Yorkers, is a very contempti
ble one. Allow me to inform the “sententious
young man aud his club,” that the New York
Regiments, now going home, are not mainly
composed of “bounty jumpers.” The lew
regiments at this place for instance, the 128,
the 1 59, the 15(5, and several others have not
one “bounty jumper ’in their midst. “Boun
ty jumpers” do uot generally stay and return
home with their regiments, but desert tbe
first opportunity. Every one of the men,
now returning home has done his dirty faith
fully on bloody fields and fatiguing marches;
and, altuough they do not ask to be paraded,
refuse to become the objects of insult.
Your correspondent aud his club are con
temptible puppies, that would not dat eto
pass remarks of the above kind iu the pre. -
ence of any New York regiment.
• A New York Volunteer
and NX “Bou ntv Jumper.”
Contrary to our almost invariable rule, we
publish the above anonymous communica
tion, not even suppressing the offensive ca
nine characterization of one of our attaches,
although we can assure Mr. No Bom.ty
Jumper that our New York correspondent is
a thoroughly patriotic man, devoted to the
interests of the soldier, who has done more
to make departing volunteers happy, and re
turning invalids comfortable, and to aid all
classes of soldiers, than any other man in
New York of his means, that we know of—
e only publish the fiercely caustic epis le,
the hasty tone of which the author no
doubt regrets.Hbeeause it contains some truth,
aud because an interpretation might lie put
on the statement in the correspondence by
which the gallant New Y T ork regiments
might be injured.
The following is the paragraph alluded to*,
which has much of compliment and a few
lines decidedly incorrect and out. of taste:
‘ ‘The interest manifested four years ago iu the
rapidly passing column of southward bound
patriots will probably, ere another month ex
pires, be equalled by our community in wel
coming home the remains of those regiments
whose last thoughts of home remind them of
the cheers they received as they left the Man
hattan shores of the Hudson river. Our
volunteer militia will turn out by regiments
and do escort tor the returning laurelled
braves. The effort to have a big review here
will probably be reuewed, but a question
asked by a sententious fellow a lew even
ings since, that “suppose you take the boun
ty jumpers out of your New York regiments,
what would the review amount to numeri
cally ?" brought down the commendatory
applause of the whole of one of our up
town dubs. The vets, those who have
borne the brunt, fought the battles, buried
their comrades on bloody fields, and now
come home, shall have our hearts' thanks.”
It crept into our columns inadvertently,
and in the crowd of matter yesterday morn
ing was unobserved, as the misprint which
occurred of the word “pimpers” for
“jumpers” indicated. We agree with our
iudignaut anonymous correspondent as to the
good general character of New York troops,
and we have a very poor opinion ot the com
mon sense and patriotism of the up-town
citib, and the sententious tellow who so elec
trified them with his shallow wit. Cannot
our epithetic epistolary champion of New
oik soldiers’ rights now abate somewhat
of his wrath ?
Perhaps there is not one among the
hundreds of eulogistic poems which the
death of President Lincoln called forth,
which is more remarkable in all re
spects, or indeed more grateful to Americans,
than the verses of Punch, re-printed to-day
at the request of many readers, who, by the
early exhaustion of our Editions, were unable
to procure copies yesterday.
The London Punch is hardly less an au
thoritative organ than the London Times.—
Its keen sarcasms are quite as much dread,d
in the highest circles of European society as
the denunciations of the “Thunderer,” and
its tribute of praise is correspondingly covet
ed. Like the other organs of the English
aristocracy, it had been throughout the war
a bitter enemy of the North. The President
ot the Nation, his cabinet aud generals, aud
all their measures, had never been spared by
the sharp pen and sharper burin of the
“ scurril jester.” With what a touching force,
then, does the noble tribute of Punch come
to us in ouv affliction. How willingly do we
make room for him at the bier of Lincoln
** BosUc this porpsc, tliut boars for

Boston, June 4, 18(55.
To the Sarritnah Herald :
“Anniversary Week” in Boston is a great
season. I doubt whether the whole South
can furnish anything of the sort. My South
ern travels afford no reminiscences ol Anni
versary Meetings, ancTlhave sometimes won
dered how tiie various philanthropic ma
chines of society were kept in running order
without occasionally greasing the wheels by
public gatherings. But my mind reverts to
numerous reports detailing the amount of
money expended by Northern Societies iu
furnishing Bibles, Tracts, Colporteurs and
Preachers, for the South-just as though the
the aforesaid South didn’t care a “rap” about
its “latter end”. Wonder how the Missionary
work has proceeded for the four years last
past, and whether any Bibles and Testa
ments have been used for wadding ? Anni
versary week in Boston brings together a
motley crowd of philanthropists, clergymeu,
favorite deacons, and loud praying Pharisees.
Most of those who come up from every
nook and corner of New Englaud to this
Feast of the Passover deserve the credit of
sincerity, but there are, of course, some who
have “axes to grind,” aud who know many
shrewd tricks to get others to turn the grind
stone. The end of slavery has taken away
the spiciest part of the week. That subject
was loug a bone of contention in the Ameri
can Tract Society, and the debates were a
feature of the week. This year.the meeting
of the Tract Society was as (lull as dull cowlil
be, and the more active members preseut
seemed to wish somebody would knock a
“chip off their shoulders.” The Peace So
ciety comes out of the war as fresh as a daisy.
I supposed it might have become somewhat
demoralized by the war fever that has swept
over the land—inasmuch as the members
universally favored the war, or laid low
while it was raging. But they were together
rejoicing in the terms of peace, and touched
off 1 the same old resolutions whisk have
figured so often before. They justified the
war for the Union, because the Union was
assailed, and we were forced to figla. I be
lieve it generally happens that the one party
or the other claims to be—whether rightfully
or not—driven into a war; and therefore
the argument of the Peace Society is like
that of the old darkey Eph Horne used to
personate, wha had a boy named Ephraim,
and who declared that he “never allowed
Ephraim to fight—n never ’lowed him to get
As near as I can judge from the reports of
the various meetings,' the war has turned
Christiau charity and philanthropic contribu
tions chiefly into practical channels. What
tremendous enterprises are the “sanitary”
and “Christian” commissions! Millions of
dollars have been poured into their treasu
ries, and mountains of articles, the value of
which has never been computed, and never
will be, buve been collected from every city,
village and rural neighborhood of the North,
aud expended for the benefit of patiiot sol
diers in every camp of tbe vast battle-field.
It is not to be wondered at that such tremen
dous enterprises have withdrawn contribu
tions from many treasuries, whereof the exi
gencies were not so great, and forced opera
tors to contract or change entirely the field
of their labors. If I was to quote the philan
thropy stock market, I should say that the
regular dividend paying securities were iu
quick demand, whiie the “fancies,” the rep
resentative of which might be a society pre
sided over by Rev. Aminadab Sleek, for fur
nishing a woollen shirt, a tooth-brush and a
fine-tooth comb to every infant born iu Africa
are, in the language of the stock market, dull
and neglected. New enterprises are held as
favorably as petroleum stocks, and mutual
coil companies. Witness the Freedmeus
Aid Societies, Loyal Tennesseean’s Aid So
cieties, and many more.
To my mind the most interesting meetings
of the week are tbe Sunday School meetings,
at which Tremont Temple or Music Hall are
packed with thousands of Sunday School
children, whose dresses are lawn and ribbon,
with happy faces, making an assembly a large
bouquet ot rarest flowers, set with sparkling
jewels. When they all sing together, such a
wave of harmony is produced as one might
be wafted to Heaven upon. The only draw
back to these pleasant affairs is the insane
passion for speech-making, which displays
itself, and amounts to an epidemic mama dur
ing anniversary week. Some of them are
short and sweet, but there are a good many
smooth-bores here attending the meetings,
with large calibre and heavy charges.
During the week the city was pretty well
tilled with gentlemen in shining black, who
have come up from their pastorates m the
country to new-light their tapers—*, e , get
uew ideas from the meetings of the multi
tudes. They toil not, neither do they spin—
not a thread—but Solomon, in all his glory,
did not look as wise as they do. They go to
no hotels, but are quartered on the brethren,
where they live on the best tbe market af
11 1 give yon a little photograph of a busi
ness meeting of the Society for the Propaga
tion of Virtue, you must understand it as a
“lectio" extravagant, but not much. Four
or five emineut clergymen from various parts
of tbe country meet about half an hour after
time assigned in a church vestry. Tnese are
the President, Secretary, Treasurer and one
or two Directors of the aforesaid Society.—
After congratulatory remarks and questions
ot grave import—as to how the good work
is going on down in your section, brother, —
the meeting is called to order. There are
seren reporters present—godless youth—who
affect indifference to the business in hand,
and slyly match coppers ou their knees under
the table. The President rises, calls the
meeting to order, and proceeds to develope
the vast importance of the work this society
has to perform, and to show what a tremend
ous excitement it keeps up among the friends
of virtue everywhere. In fact the eyes of ail
Christendom are fastened upon this society
and shall we ever falter? Never! Amen!
i tithe one of the reporters has been
cleaned out ot all his “nickels,” and the fact
that Rev. Samuel Popgun called the meet
; lug to order and made a stirring address is
written in seven variations. Before that, how
ever, the reporters of the more reiigious
dailies have scratched down the fact that the
meeting was largely attended, and a deep
interest was manifested among the multitude
present. The Secretary then reads a lengthy
report of the doings of the society during the
last year, in which he goes over substantially
the same ground harvested once by the Pres
ident, dwells heavily upon the vast interest
awakened in the society, paints its future in
glowing colors, and gives a handsome puff to
each officer present. The Treasurer is then
called upon for his report, from which it ap
pears that the amount on hand last year was
fourteen cents; amount received irom all
sources $1 11; expenditures (with details)
$1 22; Cash iu hands of Treasurer 3 cents.
The President is thanked for his address; the
Secretary for his able and impartial report;
the Treasurer for the honest and judicious
manner in which he has administered the
finances of the society. Then the officers
are te-elected witli the exception of one di
rector, who declines, and whose place is Ail
ed by another gentleman who will bleed free
ly for tbe honor conlerred. Motion to ad
journ—carried by the unanimous vote of the
reporters. And that is all.
The National Day of Mourning in honor of
the memory of the late President of tie Uni
ted States, was generally observed through
out New England. Iu Boston, our citizens
uot having had the privilege ot doing honor
to the remains of the great martyr in their
triumphal (I had almost said) procession
through the country—great preparations were
made for the observance of this day made
sacred to his memory. The churches were
all open in the morning, and services were
held by large congregations at 9 o’clock.—
The next feature was a grand procession—
the laigest ever formed iu Boston. It inclu
ded about four thousand militia, with arms,
and over ten thousand men besides in some
two hundred organizations, including veteran
soldiers, Fenians, Sons of Temperance, Ma
sons, Odd Fellows and Benevolent Societies.
The commander of the escort was Brig. Gen.
Bartlett, an officer who has lost an arm and
a leg during the war, to say nothing of a doz-
en other wounds which took away no limbs.
He is said to be tbe best “ shot-to-pieces ”
officer of his rank in the service. The veter
an soldiers, without arms, were led by Col.
P. R. Guiney, a graduate of the Massachus
etts Ninth, who had given an eye to the cause
of the Union. Prominent in the procession
were half a dozen large vans filled with crip
pled soldiers, with a banner on which was
inscribed : “ We have lost our limbs, but we
have saved our country.” These heroes were
cheered to the echo throughout the line, to
which they responded right heartily. The
procession was about three hours passing a
given point; the route was lined with spec
tators from curb to housetop; and although
some cities have been honored during the
war with the march of larger armies, the
military display was considered very satis
factory. The next feature of the programme
was a Eulogy on Abraham Lincoln, pro
nounced by Hon. Charles Sumner in Musical
Hall, of which I can give no satisfactory ab
stract in the brief limits of a letter. I dare
say it will go all over the country, and that
its ability in every part and its good taste in
nearly every part will be universally acknowl
edged by fair minds. The only political
point presented w T as a declaration in favor of
abolishing all color qualifications for suffrage,
to carry out the work of emancipation. The
orator was supported on the platform by all
parties, many of whom are distinguished in
their various walks. Among them w T ere Re
presentatives Hooper and Rice, Hon. George
S. Boutwell, Hon. T. D. Elliott, Oakes Ames,
Ex-Governor Clifford, Collector J. C. Good

A grand feature of the exercises in the hall
was the performance of the dirge—“ Mourn,
ye afflicted people,” from Judas Maccabeus,
by six hundred voices of the Handel and
Haydn Society, assisted by a large orchestra
and the great organ.
The day was observed in a haudsome man
ner in Concord, N. 11., where the whole pop
ulation of the Granite State seemed to be as
sembled for the occasion. There was a great
military display, and a eulogy by Congress
man Patterson. There were between three
and four thousand militia in line, and many
Societies, &c. The eulogy was delivered in
tbe open air, for which the day was admira
An interesting case has been on trial in our
courts during the last week, against E. O. J.
Smith, a prominent citizen of Maine, for sub
ornation of perjury, in which one Nortlirup
was the person alleged to be perjured. Tbe
perjury was alleged to have been committed
m a trial oq a libel agaiust Smith by D. H.
Craig, Manager of the New York Associated
Press, and the evidence has shown by the
mouth of Ncrthrup that Smith liad been inti
mate with his wife, with liis consent, she
having lived with him as a misiress for some
years before she was married to Nortlirup,
and liad two boys by him The counsel for
the defence claimed that they were not trying
Smith for tornication, but the most of the evi
dence seemed to be to establish that charge
against him. Smith is a wealthy man, of un
bounded enterprise and countless amours
It is a matter of question whether he takes
more pleasure in anew business scheme or a
new love. He had just organized a plan to
make a tremendous water power at Portland
by projecting a canal, which all agree will be
a grand tlnng for that city. He is the ovvtier
ot the I oiUaqd Advertiser, and is, or Ims
