How'lUo North Proposes to pay the War
Tho vast amount noeded to reduce tho
Southern ..rebellion" is opening thc oyes of
Northern property-holdors and business men,
- lind creating alarm. They begin to ask their
political loaders if success, admitting it to bo
possiblo, is worth tho price it will cost.
To koop dowa thu rising spirit of discon
tent, tho war* journals of tho North arc rc
: sorting to tho expidicnt of promising rcim
busrotnent from confiscations of Southern
proporty. This delusivo plan may cheer
Northern hopes awhile among tho credulous,
and supply tho ranks of its armies with mer
cenary adventurer.-?. Thcro is no lack of
Northolm Union-savors of thc school of Cap
tain Dugald Dalgctty. Hut tho plan will neith
er supply tho Northern exchequer for pres
ort needs, nor holst ir up thc Federal credit
in Wall and Lombard streets- Ponds issued
on such a security for payment, will not com
mand a high premium.
It ia not amiss, however, thal Southern
mon should keep'advised of tho benevolent
intentions of our Northern brethren, who are
wooing them baok to their fraternal embrace

O istenco, against a most nefarious insurrec
tion, our pcoplo are sometimes startled by
tho vast amount of money needed, and in
sidious traitors muong us intrude thc inquiry,
is tho. reduction of tho Southern hostility to
tho Gov?rnment roally worth the iinnionse
sum that will bo required ? Hut tho loyal cit
izens of thc oountry have not shrunk from thc
task of suppressing tho rebellion, great ns thc
task is, and although it may cost four hun
dred or six hundred millions of do!furs, or
.oven double thoso sums ; and thoy hnvd not
stopped to consider whether the wholoamount
of tho immonso war dobt will have to bo paid
out of tho proporty and resources of tho loyal
States alone. .
At this timo, therefore, it may bo encour
aging to tho coiintry to bo reminded that, by
.?tho law and usAg? of nations, it is cntiroly lc
'gitimntc to innko proporty of tho citizens of
tho robel States, whoso wickedness thus pro
voked this war, pay the wholo debt incurred
by tho nation in restoring tho supromnoy of
tho Constitution and laws. That it will bc
j|us>fcto inflicta ponalty on tronson, no ono ?an
deny, and tho country will domond tho re
cognition of this prinoiplo, partially, if not to
its full oxtont, by n special impost on tho pro

inaugurated for tho protootion of slavo propor.

only safety of slavo property now lies in tho
restoration of tho Constitution and tho Un

view of tho foot that tho monoy now expend

tho property in question.
Mr. Secretary Chaso very properly presents
this wholo subject to tho consideration of
Congress, in his admirable report on tho Treas

gaged in' insurrection, or giving aid and coin
Tort to tho iusurgoots,.may proporly bo made

forfeiture of thc whole or a port of tho es

proceeds into the pub!'o tronfmry."

tho " ball should go on." A largo nutnbor
ot indies and gctiiiuiuuu pytv present. His
l?xoellonoy tho President ootcd us spokcsmtiu
on tho occasion.
A correspondent of tho lliohmoud Dispatch,
describing tho affair, says :
" Tho Logion was formed into three sides
of a squaro to re?oive thc President, whoop
?oared on a grey horse, a ^om pain cd by Col.
lampton and staff. Many yt us had novor
seen tho boro of Buena Vista boforo, nnd his
appearance difforcd somewhat from What wo
had fancied. His keen, calm cyo alono indi
cated tho warrior, while tho sorono expression
of countenance, and plain, simple manner of
his bearing, denoted moro tho student and
statesman. Advancing a few paces in thc
hollow of tho square, ho took thc beautiful
banner with evident emotion, and addressed
his ( friends and fellow-soldiers of South Car
olina' in tones and words thatj stirred thoir
bosoms with feelings of pride and devotion to
thoir native State, and that moistened tho
eyes of many with thc memories of her past
achievements in tho old Bcvolution, and on
tho gory fields of Mexico. Ho told tho Le
gion that tho flag was tho work of tho fair
fingors of the descendants of Darby, and Wil
liams, and. Campbell, tho heroes of King's
Mountain, aud Cowpcns, and Eutaw. Moul
trie mid first unfurled tho flag of thc Union
on tho walls of Fort Moultrie, and Jasper res
cued it on tho glouriou8 day of viotory. Ile
know Carolinians on tho bloody plains ol
Mexico, when they boro their banner, dipped
in blood, from victory. Herc was another
banner entrusted to thoir keeping, and before
him stood thc men to preserve it from defeat)
and, liko thc heroes of Ohurubusco, they
would hand it from one to another until thc
last man falls, or plant it triumphant on II
conquered field. Ho was sorry, ho said, that
ho could not bid thom hope thc smiles ol
pence would banish from our loved country
thc dark clouds of war, for ho felt that wc
bsd hardships to endure-privations to beal
-great deeds to do. For himself, bc had
not como to thc office ho occupied for its hon
er, but to share its perils; and when Carolin?
levels her bayonets for thc last charge, lu
hoped to bo with them. He intonded to bi
where men bleed and die With suporaddec
confidence mid pleasure, ho jominitted tin
beautiful flag in tho hands of Col. Hampton
as thc son of a noble gentleman, nnd tin
grnnd-son of'n gallaut commander of . 70."
Three times thrco were cuthusiiisticnlh
given for Jeff. Davis, and after thc band lute
played a fino air, Colonel Hampton replied
" that coming, as it did, from thc hands of otu
reverenced and honored throughout thc lengtl
and breadth of tho whole Southern country
this flag, in itself demanding thc highest feel
i tigs of pride and reverence, with bright cs
memories of Carolina clustering around it, wa
doubly valued. Ho would ask his followor
to defend it." Ho asked them to'" look upoi
its Palmetto tree and silver crescent ;" tbei
turning to Sergeant Darby, ho said : "To yoi
I commit this sacred trust. I know you wei
-you must remember timt you uro tho grand
son of a patriot and hero."
On taking it, Sergeant Darby briefly replied
" that it was his pride and pleasure to bc lb
bearer of that beautiful banner; that whil
life histed it would never go down before th
enemy, and if it did fall, his epitaph would b
written on its folds."
I']very oyo rested fondly on tho silver ere.?

Tho feat of tho "contraband" (Virgina nig
ger) capturing a lieutenant, regimentals and
ul I, is suggestive :
"Tho most brilliant, daring and dashing
exploit of tho day was tho capturing of bo
tween wny ui;uuttv redora: prisoners by"
body of horsomon. After tho army had cros
sed tho rivor nt Williamsport, tlenoral Neg
loy's brigade diverged from thc main road on
loading to llodgsviljo ; Company A, of tho
: 15th Pennsylvania regiment, were sent iu ad
vance of tho main body ns scouts. It con
sisted of sixty-tbrco ineu. At tho residenco
I of William MoGorry, li sq., a farmor, they
called a heit, and hailing ono of the daughters,
j inquired for her father, whoo they said'they
bad an account to settle with, ns he had been
feeding nntl harboring rebol troops.
" Tho young Indy said sho did not kn nv
whero her father was, when twelve of thc par
ty started out to bunt. Several of tho re
maining 'wops now grosslyinsultod tho young
lady, ?od said to her if sho did not reveal
whero her father was that they would put her
to death, and pointed their bayonets at her
breast. At this stage of tho proceedings a
body of 25 horsemen galloped up, under Cap
tain ltobcrt Swann. They were on tho point
of being fired upon, when Captain Swann
shouted, My God, mon, don't lire on your
friends! Down with your muskets." Upon
which they, thinking it was sonic of their
own troops, obeyed thc order. As quick as
thought, Swami's men were off their horses,
and, withdrawn swords and pistols, demanded
their surrender, which they did without he
They then disarmed thom, and taking the
straps off their canteens, tied their hands be
hind their backs, and in this manner marched
them off through Martinsburg to Winchester.
The men were ordered to march ata " double
(mick," which they complained tlioy could
not do, as they were much wearied ; but Gnp
tain Swami's orders were imperative, and
forward they woro pushed, with all possible
dispatch. Thc captain of thc company cap
tured was in town this evening, appearing
much depressed about the matter; thc re
maining twelve men refusing to inarch under
him, blaming him for their misfortunes.
Swami's .purry each took two muskets in front
of them on thoir horses, und mad those men
throw away their haversacks, <&c. This was
a daring feat, and was performed by a May
lander, and a citizen of Washington county.
" Another feat, and ono more humorous,
was that of a slavo of Mr. McGarry's who
captured a lieutenant pf the same company,
disarmed bim, and divesting him of his 're
gimentals,' sword and pistol, doned them him
self, and marched him 'prisoner-of-war' off
to Winchester. ' Nigger as good ns white
man' that timo."
