chin ftelefltaph True rtnl«anikl|i' I monism, much talked of, seems to be but little understood. Since it has come to ue professed by many as the only priuciple of American politics, it weTt* well that it should be explained. Without preface, then, it implies nothing more or less than mutual toleration and respect. Those who persistently eulogise John Brown, and de- nounce Henry A. Wise as a scoundrel, are <li(unionists at heart and in practice, what- ever may be their professions. No one can bean enlightened Unionists, who is in- capable of judging men fairly in spite of the accidental peculiarities of sectionalism. "«et the loudest Unionists at the North are precisely those who seem to be constitu- tionally unable £o speak of any body or anything Southern with toloration, or even with the decencies of denunciation itself. This is much worse than ordinary and oc •asional disagreements, however sharp, be- cause it indicates a settled animosity—a ancor which has been indulged unti...

The jOitv. \nother Bcrulaet- -Gunpowder Used. J/fhe store of Mr. W. *R, Fayle, corner of Main and Preston streets, was entered by burglars on Saturday night, and about fifty dollars worth of tobacco taken. The thieves entered through the printing office of the Christian Advocate, and tore off a board on the side oi the building, and had no difficulty in entering. The money drawer of the store was opened by means of gunpowder being placed and fired in the keyhole. The sconnarels did not find a cent. This cir- cunstance confirms our suspicions that every means of rascality will be resorted to by the villains now here, to«accomplish their nefarious designs. We again warn our merchants and citizens to be on their guard. The grocery store of Mr. Hardcas- ile a few doors from Mr. Fayles, was en- tered through a window in the rear of the store. The rascals climbed upon an out- house and forced the window open. Chlo- roform was administered to a young man sleeping near the window- The thiev...

Spsackat Blur. lion. Montgomery Blair delivered a spefccli at Clarksville, Md., oa the 2(>tb Au- gust, the sabject of which was the late war. The speech is too long to be copied in full, but we make the following extracts, which will give a clear idea of its character: The first step (the inauguration of Mr. Lincoln in March accomplished) after Mr. Seward was confirmed as Secretary of State by the Senate, brought John Forsyth, Mar- tin J. Crawford, and A. B. Roman, "com- missioners from the Confederate States," who, to use their own lauguage. " asked au- dience to adjust, in a spirit of amity and peace, the new relations springing from a manifest and accomplished revolution in the government of the Union." This was on the 12th of Marcli.*Tbis application was not answered until the 8th oi April, although Mr. Seward's declination was prepared on Hie 15thof March; but a memorandum at the close of it adds: " A delivery of the same, however, was delayed to Messrs.

The Citv. Loss of THE StBAMBR Lone STAR. —The bayou steamer Lone Star, which left this cily on Tuesday, with about 4.10 bales of cotton, was wrecked about six miles above Red Fish bar. The wind com- menced blowing strongly about daybreak, and it is supposed that she sprung a leak! As soon as she commenced sinking, Mr. John Mills of this city, and the clerk of the boat, was dispatched in an open boat to procure assistance. They took off a lady passenger, Mrs. Long and child. The bal- ance of the crew and passengers were left on board. As soon as the news of the dis- aster reached Galveston, General Kent or- dered the Bteamer Nashua to proceed to the wreck. The steamer Gen. Sherman, was also dispatched to the scene. There was a high sea rolling at the time these boats left, and prevented the bay steamers from going to the aid of the ill-fated steamer. We learn from a gentleman of this city, who was on the Gen. Sherman, and left the scene ef the disaster yesterday morning at 5 o'clock,...

The Oitv. Burglary—a Law* Rqbbkd.—Tho sleeping apartment of a lawyer in ibis city was entered by burglars on Tuesday night. Tbe scoundrels got into the room througft a back door, and did not disturb the tired disciple of Blackstooe. He arose early next morning, and found hi? pants had dis- appeared mysteriously, and on searching the premises, found them in the back yard, with the pockets rifled of their contents.— The burglary business is evidently about to " play out." We have heard of people who would steal a stick ot candy from a baby—the pennies from a dead nigger's eyes—the wedding ring from a dying mo- ther, or the sacred vessels from the Holy Sanctuary; but who else but a "played out" institution would think of robbing a lawyer's office. To facilitate the "detectives," we publish the list of articles supposed to have been taken: 1st. One quid of stingy green tobacco, half used. 2d. One complimentary ticket of ad- mission to the "moving figures" on Con- gress Street. 3d. One l...
