The Southern papers of late date contain lengthy aeoounte of General Grant's recent flank Movements, which they say they bad diseovered, and were partially prepared for. An interesting debate took place in the rebel Congroea on the 23d, upon a series of resolutions from North Carolina, asking for the appointment of commissioners to obtain an armllce of ninety days from tbe Union, government, with a view to obtain peace. This North Carolina claims should be done by each State in its sovereign aud independent character, and the resident and Senate should complj. Tbe resolutions, however, were tabled. . And so affairs stand, at present. A hush oi expectation haBgs over tbe whole country, which at any moment may be broken by tld Ings of battle and carnage.

The Board ef AVlermen bad a special Meeting last night foitbo purpose of increas- iag me satarie or citt oncers, se at lo enable the o&cials to meet tbe vastly increased deatands made apeirjhem for tho Decenaries ot ufe, by the inoreased advance in tbe Jjice of gold, and the consequent high price f everything which people uie to keep the ksaehinery of life going. Aid. Taylor, of tbe 15th Ward, Toted against almost every proposition to increase. There wa , preatdeal ore talk upon tho mu.c matter than was needed, and, as a consequence, many very ludicrous things were aald. Perhaps tbe most ridioulous part ot tbo transaction was the little personalities which certain members of tbe Board Buttered to eontrol their action as officers of the City Government. Toil was eminently the case with Aid. McLaughlin In his splenetic re-Marks in reference to Mr. AfcCIoskey, City Clerk, aad Mr. Flanagan the City Hall Keeper aid Sergeant-at-Arms. Tbe bitter course of Aid. McL. only served to make strong friends, for the two gentlemen named, of those wbo were previously somewhat iriiiffer-ent The high eneomiums paoj U4)on jrr McClotkey in the Boari by Various members, Independent M pftrtyj were Buch as that olfici"; mdy woU feel proud of Tber f0I 0ther personalities Indulged in Which showed a great want of gentlemanly decorum, but they were merely snch improprieties as usually result from shallowness, and therefore to be pardoned. We present a report of tbe proceedings in another column, and simply add bere that the action of tbe . Board last nigbt has yet to be reviewed by tne Mayor. hether be will give bis appnral to what was done remains to bo seen.

The Ja glad to 1 and tow eoTntry au loval people's decision or this tuiicer, even tboueh mv own judgment mlcht not concur, when 1 can feel aunred tbat it i the people's own io telligent decision, and not a careless, amiable following either of considerations well enough iu themselves, bat immaterial to the requirements of tbe rase, or of the nllurementa, influences, official and other teachings, cajolings or menacings, of demagogue place-holders and wire-puller. My responsibility extends no farther than to mke use of my opportunities lo give my fellow-citizens the means of thinking as I do ; the thick-mr they niUHt do for themselves after all, and Willi them that opportnnily rest. In tliOyor mer numbers I submitted the "Ode-Term Principle," and the question of the personal claims of Mr. Lincoln cpon the People for con- tinned lavor by re.ison of his cflicial services -so far. I now beg to discuss the nature or significance of the (act of h seeming personal popularity. Many intelligent men of the most earnest patriotism I huvo beard expre-s dissatisfaction with Mr. Lincoln's admin'Jtratlou, am' the belief that wa have stateemen who could and would do better in his place ; but that the people are made no to have. Mr. Lincoln we ninst take him or let in a Conn rWJ This position, if warranted as a matter of fact, woma do a patriotio one, wnicn l would l.rt neither voice nor nen aealnst. bnt rather strive anil fortify;,bnt;to my mind it is founded on a mistaken interpretation or. things. Let cs scrutinize the matter. People cheer the President when be appears before them, and they cheer at the men' tion of his name in uuWic speeches, with an una nimity and energy unusual as a mere recognition of the b!gh official position. I atknowledge; tbat to be a fact. Very well, what significance has it? Let us see. Tbe claim is, that what is beyoud tbe demonstrations usual as a recognition of the portion, must be due to the extraordinary merits of tne man in the popuinr esteem. Suppose, instead of the appearance of the President in a publio assembly, the Star-Spmgied Banner is introduced, or i9 alluded to by a nnaker. how is that received? Are not the demonstrations more animated than formerly? Whereas, ia former times, before the rebellion broke out, the appear, ance of our fhg, or mention of it, wro!d be received nine times out of ten in dead silence, regarded either as a piece of decoration, or a metier ol eourso national symbol; now it is cheered with fervor.with intense feolins; on everv occasion. Now, bowshoo'd this fact be interpreted liv the foregoing reasoning it would be held that our flig is more meritorious than it was in days gone by that the bunting has been growing liner and toucher, and tbe colors more brilliant. But whv do we cheer at the sight of a (lag at all? Is it because of the pretty picture it presents ? I have seen an old war torn, ballet-riddled, faded end stained stand of colors excite the wildest en- thnsfasm. How is that? A tiicr is a -- .. tion of a conntry or caas3,ona iat iH"precisrlv' what a Present is. Other PresidcniH retentatives of their country also; bnt President j.iucoin is more nnivcmmiy cneered, without dis tmetion of party, or more animated and earnest ly, oecause DO represents, in addition to the coantrir Which other Presidents represented a caute upon which Uie very life of tbe nation and all wo have and are, depend because the times ana events ouiciaiiy personated in him are more amniaiea aud earnest, and interest by the direct peril of at least oua ireni. ber of almost every family throughout tho land.

The consequence was an adjournment for 10 minutes, a second adjournal "it ( 1 ' i.iin-ntss, a third adjournment for 1" miautes more. At tbe expiration of the last 1 j minutes Aid.
