EASTERN SUMMARY _^BOSTON AND NE W-ENGLAN D. In Early Times, the laws against profanity were very severe in Massachusetts and other New-England States. And even now the laws of Massachusetts provide that persons guilty of taking the name of the Lord in vain _^ shall be subject to a fine of from one to five dollars. But the law is rarely executed, and this detestable and unmanly vice is rapidly gaining ground. A correspondent. ot the _JZoston Journal suggests that a rigid application of this wholesome law would raise enough money to enable Massachusetts to pay her portion of the war-tax. The same might be truly said of many other localities in this country, just now. The Number of Establishments in Massachusetts engaged in the manufacture of Iron, brass and copper, including rolling mills, furnaces, foundries, -machine-shops, tool-factories, &c, and = not including nail and tack-machines, is six hundred and eighteen, and their appraised value is about f6,dtj_^000_?

The Expedition to f _ennessee. The United States forces which lately left Cairo, under Gen. Grant and Com. Foote, have had the beginning ©1 what we expect will be eminent success. On the 5th, Gen. Grant landed on the Bast side of the Tennessee River, two miles below Fort Henry. This Fort is in Tennessee, a short distance above the Northern line of the State, on the rig ht bank of the river, and opposite the upper end of Painter Creek Island. It is a strong earth-work on the low bottom land, and is protected in the rear by a swamp. The point is one of great strategetical importance. It, with Fort Donaldson, at Dover, on the Cumberland, and but fifteen miles distant, commanded the rivers and closed against our troops, the entrance by these important highways, into Tennessee. Fifteen miles. above Fort Henry is the bridge of the railroad from Bowling Green to Memphis, called the Memphis and Ohio Rail road.- .- ••¦ • • This_? point the rebels thought they had made secure.

CHANGES OF FIIMNB About this time last year the conspirators and their allies were busy vaunting their numbers, power, bravery—their entire moral and military superiority over the North. Their religious journals as well as political, were boastful. Their President, Vice-President, Secretaries, Congressmen, platform speakers, letter writers, all boasted of themselves and despised their brethren. Their tone is now greatly changed. One instance of the change we give in extracts from an address signed by Ho well Cobb, B,. Toombs, M. J. CeAweobd, and Thos. B. B. Cobb, to the people of Georgia: " Second.—Our enemy has exhibited an energy, a perseverance, and an amount of resources which we had hardly: expected, and a disregard of the Constitution and laws which we can hardly credit. " Third.—An immense army has been organized for our destruction, which is being disciplined to the unthinking stolidity of regulars. With the exleusive possession of the seas, our enemy is enabled to t...

New-York Herald's Correspondent Arrested. The country is rejoicing in the energy displayed by Secretary Stanton. We are glad to find that he operates not only in one quarter, but all around. His last move is the holding *of the. correspondents of the press to an account.. These we regard as aeeupying an honorable and most important _position; but some oi them abuse it to the country's great damage. TBe following order is issued by the War Department: War Department, ) Washington, Feb. 10,1862. j It is ordered that a person calling himself Dr. Ives, a native of a rebel State, whose brother, lately in the military service of the United States, is now an officer in the rebel army, and who pretends to be a special representative of the New-York Herald for Washington, be arrested and _Tleld in close custody at Fort McHenry as a spy, and for violating the rules and regulations of this Department in this : that on Saturday, the 8th day of February, 1862, against the public and well kno...

PROTECT Til UPRIGHT In these days of _frafad, imposition, and falsehood, the innocent are exposed to suffer, in common with the guilty. They are sometimes even more exposed. The man who will take means to prevent harpies from preying upon the Government_; must expect their _wrathi And such beings will stop at nothing, in their efforts to remove or prostrate him who stands in their- way. And if by imposition and, deception, good men can be enlisted against good men, the plan is the more likely to succeed. These remarks we make, however, not to discourage efforts to protect the public interests, and to expose base and dishonest men. We advocate the Van _Wyck Com mittee of Congress, the Potter Committee, and the Committee to investigate the conduct of the war; and other just means used to ferret out traitors, swindlers, &c, "&c.

The company had been separated from the regiment to which it belonged, by a brave but unsuccessful attempt to intercept a body of the enemy who were attempting to cut off the retreat of one of our brigades. The Captain was leading his men through a _daagerous defile as he uttered the words above recorded. _' The same words may be appropriately addressed to the Christian soldier. " Keep a sfcarp look-out." He is exposed to temptafaiaa. He is in danger of neglecting his duty- He is in danger of forgetting God. He Is in danger of transgressing his law. He is in . danger of _dishonoring Christ. He is in danger of grieving the Holy Sjpiaifc. All these dangers may be avoided by .keeping a sharp look-out.
