Another Great Speech by Joseph, Holt, f he Chamber of Commerce of New York ga.se .,] Hon, Joseph Holt a format reception on Tues- day evening.. Mr Holt addressed this influen- tial body in one ot his brilliaotand electrifying speeches. The following are specimen para graphs; FELLOW-CITIZENS :—Suppose you. lived in oqe of those cities where there is a i-teatn .fire- engine and also a paid company to opprate it; and suppose that your hou=e wa3 on fire, and this company and this engine, having bfen summoned to the spots \were vigorously engaged in extinguishing it; and suppose that you ob- served from time to time, men creeping out from the orowd and slipping their knives into the nose, irom which tire water is seen to spout Oat from all directions upon the pavement, how long do yon think the presence of such misore-r »nt8 wofitd be enduWa*t«t^tf8 of \Not rong,\ and cheers.] But suppose, on lot-king nacre elosely at the f»C\8 of those men, quite a num- ber of them were recognized as members ot the fire coriipany, reoeiving salarjes from the ! treajury to which you yourself had contributed, in the first burst of your 1 indignation, would yea not feel that their punishment would not be too great it they were throwninto the flames which they were thus indirectly feeding ? X^oud, cheers and cries of •'Serve them right.\] And yet rhia has been precisely tbeci adijtion nf th« Cnvqrnment of the JTnjtea ^tatgg.^11^ has been from the very commencement of this struggle, the precise condition of the (Jovern- mentot the. United Spates, [Renewed applause ] Bellow citizens, I kuow there are those who look with mojj.e toleration upon these offences which prevail among «s than I can possibly do. Perhaps lam too harsh. {Cries of \No!\] But I inust say this; that tbe men who, in our own midst, give aid and comfort to the enemy, either by furnishing them secret information, or by advocating their cause, or by striving to sow dissensions among ourselveB, or by insiduously dissuading oar loyal men from entering the military service, arfrttiore fatally the toes ot ill: it ohr country than if.tbey were in the servic ot the Confederate SUt»s, {Prolonged applause tadcrtesof ^GoodT'l The power of the government can do joiucb t6 correct this evil ;->buc muefi^morV can ,be ! done by th|.^nWii^po«se.r^ot^ublic opinion, lirandin^is an enemy,' socially and politically, JSMoyalty,\ whenever mni wherever it is foind. ' fCncere.} Jphess men are, morally at least, guilty oflhe dearth of those who fall in deteose of ihe government, jtt.it a* much as if they had met them on the battle field. In your railroad CMS,'upon your steamboats, inyour thorough- fares, in every social circle, disloyalty should be tortndfcd and bl&p-kHl as a leprous and loattt^j something. [Lou^d applause.} And whenever jou-meet these men—be it (ipon 'Change or in —the gonial nirnlfe^fiflfl they offer Jou_ their hands, look well to them, for if you have tie eyes that Ihave, you. will see that they we red with the blood offrfiemen, your kindred and: friends i* May be, who have perished, and are perishing on,the battle field.

[Cries of ';*<3ood l 1 ' •'Good I\] Before criticising tn«ir fcouduct. we should remember that we may not s^e all the field oi action, and may not be in a condi- tion justly to appreciate.tie fi'flbaltle* wbic& ar* to be overcome, No man can donht the courage or loyalty of tie President of the United States, [a bnrst of applause and enthu siastic cries of \No t. no 1''] of his determination to tappreea this rebellion. J^ohim, under the Constitution, the-popular voice lias committed absolutely the fate of this Republic. Hla hands are entitled to be strengthened by outs* Thiit^ which weakens him weakens yourselves, *nd weftitefls the struggling coantry, whlch.we are all struggling to save. [Applause.] He i* this moment overwhelmed with mountains of toil *nd responsibility such «s have rested upon no public man in onfWstoty, and is fully en.- fitted to all the support and consideration whfefc a generous and warm-hearted patriotism Arehbif hop Hughes has wrttt-n a long let* j ter to Bishop Lynch, of Charleston, denouncing ;4hej:fibellion and declaring-for thi* Ui>.».i. The Archbishop shows Ihatit is the du'-y of.all pi- : triotic oitizens to sustain the war and punish | the Southern traitors; -' I • T—The ball haB at last fairly opened in him- j tuoky, Gen.

He took possesion of uw ! telegraphy railroad! and marine hospital, and found a large amount of rations waiting the arrival of the confederates, who were hoarlj expected with a force of 3,800 men. —The following is a list of the nominations agreed %on by the Democratic State Conven- tion, held in Syracuse last week: Judge of the Court of Appeals—Geo.

McClellau's arrangements, indicate the near approach of a second great battle. The gov- ernment is still without any confirmation of the report of Davis' death, a,nd the rumor is be- lieved to be a canard. • —The rebels continue to throw up addnnonal defenses opposite the federal lines. New works have been erected on a hill commanding the houses oooupied by our pickets, about four miles from Chain Bridge. * —It is reporter! that there are 2.000 federal prisoners at Richmond. —Three steamers, tbe property of rebel cit izens, have been seized at St. Louis undeffthe confiscation act. - —Several thousand rebel troops are sup- posed to be encamped at Leesburg. —The application for Treasury notes are so numerous that several deputies have to be em- ployed in signing them.
