He •aid that the President did, (in his Message in se cret sessiotlu) refer specially to certain evidences of disloyalty and treasonable designs, and to dangers from spies, incendiaries and emissaries, but he made no special reference to any particular State. No distinction was drawn against North Carolina. Her delegation, divided m opinion as to the propriety of the passage of the saspension law, jealoas of her honor and sensitive to any apparent insult to her eitiaens, had never complained then or sincc, of the manner in which the President had referred to the State, or of any disrespect to her citizens, in lan- FBOX THE NORTH CAB0LI5A.

Aft«r six days of continu- wus and heavy skirmishing with the enemy and fatighb duty at nitfht, our mun are broken dowu, aud tho’ always in line of battlu are enjoyiug tlmt heavy honey dew of shuiibtir whish none but tho hard workaid 8oldi«r kuowa how to enjoy. I give below such h«ld notes of the bat tle of May 2oth as passed before me, and which, I believe, is called the tight at llowlet’s Farm. At day-light we left our liuea near t)ie Kichuiund and PeUrsburjj Turnpike, aud went into line of battle on a range ot hills lUVO or 12U0 yards of the sntreached posi tion of I he enemy which we had determined to storm. Gen D IL Hill was in command of Martin's and Wise’s brigades un the right, resting on the Appomattox, and Cien. Hoke on tho left, extending to or near the James. Tli)s ei^agement was to be preceded by an artillery fire ot half au hour, and at a shout from Hoke’s division on the left we were to move at quick, tlien double juick and the ruu, as tlie distance ami drtMS of the lines required. Our blankets hail been left, our horses sent to the rear," and everything in readiness for prompt aud energetic re sponse to the exiHjete^l signal. Soou it came, and a? each bri^adt' aud n giiuent took it up, lonjr l>ef)re its echoes had died away aiuoug the distant hilU, our brave boys, over fences, thro’ branohiw thro’ briers, ^uiany of them barefooted,) were elisrging under heavy tire the breastworks of the enciuy, with an enthu-iiasni which 1 cauBot describe, but which it was my happiness to be hold aud will long remembor. As the whole eori's de scended from the hills and appeared in the tields 1k-1ow, 1 thought it tho grandest sight I ever beiield. We were preceded by a line of skiriaishers at a distance of l&M yds., aud the enemy poured upon us a short but trailing tire, but happily they were demoralized too badly lo tak.' deliberate aim; this accouuts lor tlie few casualties in the reg't—42 beiug, I thiuk, tlie loss. The enemy had st^oula iu gray uniform, aud when tho men opeai d upon them our ollicerk rentniined tlieui. till, true to yaukee dupiicry aud deception, they turned aiui tired upon us.

Some of the boldest of tluiii tired upon the 17th reg’t till they got in 10 paecs »iul then threw up their hands for quarter; the au>wer wus, the bayonets aud Confederate bullets.

Prom Qenhee’s Army.—Ha^ovkr Juxctiow, May 25.—Yestenlay Thomas’s, McGowan’s and Lane’s brigades, of Wilcox’s division, with Scales’s ot the same division in support and rvserve, w**ri! sent for ward to meet tlie enomv. who had crossed the Norlli gaage or thought.

We are glad to see this statement by Mr. Gaither. Tub Vbrt Error or tob Moon.—Among the notions, the offspring of sheer demagoguism, which the BO-called peace men of North Carolina advance with apparent earnestness, is that of submitting any treaty of peace that may be made with the United I aiid had scarcely gotu-u so beiore the New Kngiaud Pu litates to a vote of the people. Mr. J. T. Leach tributed among the prisoners and detailed meu were put in iustant requisitiou for the purpobe of streugtheniug the works agaiust the heavy artillery tire of the eueiuy on a neighboring hill—a terrible tir^opeued on us wliilc 80 engaged, aud pending this, Blouut's Ueorgia buttery dashed up as gaily as to a tournament under a hro wiiicli soou put him horr> du combat by killiug all his horac-s and several of his men. Capt. Blount told me he had been in 13 pitched battles. Crettysburg iui’ludcd, aud while it lasteU it was as trying a time as ever he saw. His meu behaved with as much coolness as if it was au innocent display of pyrotechny and death wcs not busy around. Capt. Marshall's battery was soon in position has introduced this feature into his resolutious which Congress laid upon the table, and he haii gone fur ther and stipulated that the States shall appoint oommissioners to treat, along with those of the Con- tsderate State*. 6uch propositions are not only subversive ot the Confederate government and iu direct 5ouliict with the Constitution, but iubversive of all governments. The people themselves have wi«ieiy conferred apon the Confederate government some of their sovereign rights, such as they coukl neither conveniently nor With proper understanding exercise in person. A- inong these is th* nghl^ the axclusive right, to de- «lare war and make treaties. Every man of a thimble- full of brains must know that these are things which the people cannot do with conyeniente or saft^iy. Mr Leaeh and Mr. Holden have no ia.-k of brains; snow this. But it seems to flatter very ignorant peo ple to veil them that they must have a vote upon the treaty of peace. The idea is not only absurd in itself but it is an insult to the people whom it is meant to fatter, for did not those people themselves vest this power in the Confederate government? These dema gogues pretend that the people did not know what Ley were about, and ought now to take back a right which they had solemnly conferred upon their agents, the Confederate government. Away with such tom- foelery. *JoT. Grabam os TH» Habeas Corpus.—The Richmond papers have not reported the speech de livered by Gov. Graham in the Confederate Senate on I'nesday last on the habeas corpus question. The Whig compliments it editorially as follows: •Mr. Graham, of N. C., presented hie views at length on the habeas corpus question, taking the ritans concluded to drive us from our positiou. They came up with a yell over the crest of the hill, but it wn- such a yell as l aiue from ihe chattering teeth of a badly scared loe. The old da^ we saw coming over the crest' of the hill, but no sooner had its outliues bet-a luUy seen, than down it weut most disgracefully before our eye.-., and the whole charging force retired before a tire us well directed and cool as any of us could'desire. In au oj eu held there is a large blasted chestnut tree about the cen tre of the lines of the ti^th ri^’t, aud here were pcj.sted IZ pieces of artillery from tirst to last—and hence tlii.^ reg't and the 42d reg't N. C. T. received the heaviest tire from the enemy. Not a tri'e or limb but showo the murk of shrapnel, grape and rouud shots in ail the woods iiu- metUately in rear of this chestnut tree. These battpriea were supported by tiie 66th and 4id reg'ts. Col. Urown of the 4 Jd and Lt. Col Lamb of the 17tb were wounded, the latter painfully but not dangerously iu the shoulder The casualties in the brigade were only 200, which Gen. ,Hili sitid was almost miraculously aiuall.all things considered.

Two y»-ars ago this would have made some noise a.' :i clever engagement with closer results; now it is ‘ Saul has slain liiB thousandi but uavid hfs tens of thousands.” Ihe practical results are howt-ver, that we have wiili a very small loss thrown forward our right one luile aud shortened our line of battle « miles. W’e have a com mauding [*osition, and rest assured the “Beast” will nev er see Kichmuud while we liave an arm to strike, except he tigures iu a menagerie which iieaurcgard will tit up as aoou as haud-bills are out. Uen. Gilmore is with liutler. We hear and see theni working like bearers, but they are confronted every where by our lines of bold, deteruiintM.1 men.

We are in Hoke’s division; ien.

Mr. Graham concluded his remarks with a vindication of North until he gets a Court of Intjuiry upon his cas‘.

We, however, captured some GO prisoners, who say that when our men commenced giving back the enemy were already on the run, and our boys were within a very few yards of their batteries. Our loss is put at about 3;'>0. iMtring the same evening Mahone, commanding Anderson's division, ns.mnlted Laidley’s brigade of the enemy, who had crossed jjt Oxford Mills, captur ing some (»0 prisoners.

If any one supposed that anything in the condition of that State h^ at any time called for the passage of this Jaw, that opinion was, in his belief, erroneous. When Lincoln, by his proclamation, had declared war, she said there was no neutrality for her. She threw herselt, heart and soul, into the contest, and in the manner in which she had borne herself, in her cuntribution to the cause in men and means, in the valor of her sons on every battle field, she well might challenge comparison with any State of the •Confederacy. He had learned from the Adjutant General of North Caroliua, that that State had con tributed to the war 37.88 > men, beaidoa two regi-. ments. the muster rolls of which had not been re ceived. Of this number there were now 50,000 In the field. When Gen. Lee began the fight in the Wilderness with that army which was the admiration of the world, one-half of them were North Carolin- iana. Ue knew not what was the number now, re lieve, I bfUeoe before another twelvemonth we will ouce more return to our homes with hearts full of gratitude to (iod for his goodness, and instea'I of eating our brenii vith scarceness, the earth will yield h.jr fruits and our presses burst out with new wine.
