It was much needed, and for the time being cooled the atmosphere. . Last evening. we were visited by a very heavy rain. Our cotemnporaries of the Camden (Ark.) Herald, are determined not to b» behind the age, they are willing -ietonly to receive Gonfederate and State Bends, for subscription, but also rags, and waste cotton. If this does not insure to our fricuds a large list of subscribers. whyt will ? We will take clean rags, oonself, but they must be in the shape of pants, coats, shirts, etc. A Li&bral Subscriptiosn.-C. F. Vance, agent of the government, intrrms us that the most liberal subscription yet made by our merchants for Confederate bonds, is that of Messrs. leachamn & Galbrnath, .*ho subscribed five hundred tierces of rice for the army, amounting to about $16, 001.

I Th.Efect of Ake War supoa Papers. --What sad havoc the war 'lh shade the newspapers? The Suf1a4k (Vat) Sun,. in cornmentingon.thiis subject, says : Weien the war comwmenced we had forty-four exchanges on. our liail 'hook, Of that number, twenty have been discontinued,, ten off by the blockade, Six comse toias pHintsi on a half sheet, and only eigithsf the 'nun*er appear as&before,.

The houses of her citizeus have boou entered and robbld, while the occupants were thrust out of their own doors. Atrocities of every character have been perpetrated b subjects of Lincoln, on her I he face of this proclaims her desire to remain neutral, inltread of extending a cordial welcome to the aid offered by the Confederate troops, and joining them in hurling their enemies to everlasting" damnation. Is this '"Old Kentuck ?" Sadly then as t changed. t Our offers having thus failed-for so do we consider it,-our attention t should now be turned in another diriection. Kentucky has traced her course,-let hor follow it in her wisdonr, for the consequence will rest onl-v on her. We' approve of the ,efforts made to, secure her co-operation I with the South, but entirely disapprove of any farther overtures on our part. We consider her irretrievably, lost. Extract from a Privale Lelltter.

Y esterday morning one of Lincolu's i gun boats canme from Cairo. and stopped about four miles front our Cample l and batteries. (Jurs, the Eleventh Louisiana Itegiument, o-pented lire and t shot about eight times at her. she returned the fire with Bomb titShells, but no side could do any harm. Slie de- 1 parted for Cairo. Our scouts yesterday evv"uing reported that Fremont, with 15,000 1 troops were cooning to whip us last night, and that they had seven boats, t and contemplated coeting both by n water and land.

Of the particulars of this affair I am not infhrmned ; hut it is said, still. further, that the British Govertnmetnt, when called uipon to prevent the departure of the vesscl, declined to interfere-mn what grounds I have not heard.
