Armed laierference by European
- Femeirtf in oar domestic flglit. -
The fallacy of armed intervention .by
England is preached generally by a cer
tain class. Now so far as this is concern
ed we believe it is all gammon. There is
method ia madness,1' and we 'believe the
'wish is father'to the thought," in the
case ef those who are so" fearful. Let us
look at the effect even if it should be so.
'England and France are living now cu
jtenris of amity for the simple reason tint
"ones afeardand the other dasn't.'-' If
Bngland lessens her power at home suSi-
cient to assist the rebels, she vill have an
invading army from France within he bor
ders at once. The same with France. They
' can dp nothing without u ity cf action
which can hardly be accomplished under
.the present state of feeling between those
Even if those two nations do aclcnowl-
edge the Independence of the Southern
Confederacy, the only way it will benefit
them, (except by armed interference), will
be that their piratical vessels can sail into
those ports under their own ensign.
Jf they desire ,to do so, lct.them do it.
And then you will ace w..-t an army
America can raise, on army of noble Free
men. We predict that if France and
Epelan.d acjcnp'wledge the" independence
fihia Southern Confederacy, and assist
adithamwith arms and men, epenly, Univer
sal Free lom, nn Republican forms of
.Goyernment will bo the ensign of the
world. , ,.
The people of the present da'y arc' not
so easily controlled as they were a centu
ry age." They think now for themselves,
and free thoughts make free acts. The
power of a government consists in the love
its people bean te the particular principle?
x of that governlfcEnt ; and it must be ac-
knowledgedJpEtouKfln, or principle of
government, is more uuioveu uy iuc mus-
808 than anv otner. Uur boast is our
bone and sinewEngland's in her debts
and aristocracy, therefore the consistency
' of predicting a revolution in any monar
chal government that would lend a help
ing hand or countenance in auy way the
.breaking down of" the only Republican
.government in the world.
The poor, down-trodden Son ef Erin
Joeks.with longing eyes to the time when
xhe can strike a blow for freedom, or at
leat can tread the soil of America a free
man. The true son of Erin loves his own
native Isle, but he loves freedom more, and
erould.be glad of an opportuui'y, to knock
off the obains .which now bind him.
As far as France is concerned the same
' - '.spirit pervade. The hills, vale's, ami
.plains of Fraace, were never made, to b
? ..always.tyranny-ruled. It is to fair a land

" " McCLELLAN.
' a! I our last issue we spoke of the in-
" competency of McCieilan!' Ry the dis-
patches of the 11th we-hav the pleasing
information of his removal. Thisis as it
. should be. and is a deep cut tothe villain-
tous traitors of the North who are coating
1(tally howling at the Administration, worte
t ,than McClellsa ever howled atihe rebels,
We hope now, instead of having forced
.xaarehes of 6 miles a day, to have a little
-Jghting done. McCieilan is either in
competent or a traitor. He has had a
.great deal of militaryexperience, therefore
. The cannot be incompetent. He is a stern.
;and uncompromising Dempcrat? and like
" .many of tha same strips in Kansas, be-
Miave in murdeiing rebels wiih kindness,
,. er. like the boy that killed the dog, "choke
jhira to death on bread and butter." . If
. McCieilan had a rebel prisoner who Lad
viola'ed his eath 7 or 8 times, .and there
, wan a like vhood ot; mutiny in h3 rank's

.McCieilan proceeds to bathe himself
. in colocue water sous jiot to oSend ihe
nssal organs of this noble son of (Chivalry.
He then washes his hands in rose-water
and dresses them in the finest of kid-gloves
so as net to pollute by touch this noble
jnnk of butternuts. He then proceeds in
'he mosteloqueni and pathetic manner to
inform the Confederate 'gsntleman that he

'"'Ye gods IV here breaks in the glorious

ternut soul I'll never submit."
McCIellau assures him there is none of
that class of his men around, and tells him
to keep quiet &c. f
Such has been the policy of this bragga
docio General. Even in his disgrace he ex
hibits his tenacity to bragging. In Bpaak-
ing to his soldiers at parting, he talked of
"glorious victories, &c." We would like
to know where thev have Ween won by his
army ? Where ha the "Napoleon of
America" led his troops to victory
glory. Ecko answers "whar '
IKe must disgorge the traitors that are
in our ewn army before we can expect to
vanquish the rebels. The three worthies
respectively, McCieilan, McDowe 1, and
Buell, are beautifull specimens of patriotic
Generals. According to their method of
putting down rebellion we would be fight

waged on our border, and in many of the
States comparative peace and quiet have
been our lot. While we mourn that civil
war still spreads its desolation in our
country, there is cause for thankfulness
that the immutable laws of God apply as
well to nations as individuals, to war as
well as peace and that there is some rca

Ed. Union : I have a few moments to
night to write you a few lines, but you
will excuse me if they are not in very good
shape Camp Ft. Wayne is 2 miles West
of the Arkansas line, and 6 miles south of
the point where the Ark. and Mo. line,
running east and west strikes the west line
of Arkansas. Manyyears ago an old In
dian Fort stood herec the ruins of which
are still visible, hence the name of the
camp. Althe army oferasas under
Gen Bluntpe called the first or Kansas
Division of the Army of the Frontier
The Army of the Fronties i composed of
all our army in South-tvest Mo., Arkansas
Cherokee Nation &c., under command of
Gen. Sehofield, and consists of about 30,
000 men. Tne Kansas Division comman
ded by Gen. Rlunt, is divided into three
Brigades, the 1st 2d, and 3d, commanded,
respectively by Gen. Solpman, Col. Wvcr
and Col Cloud.. The x2d Kan., Cavalry,
11th Kansas infantry? lstIndian Rcgi
ment, and Robbs battery, compose tne63al?
Col. Cloud's Brigade.
About the 1st of Oct., the 3d Brigade,
commenced moving in a direction a little
East of South from Ft. Scott, Kansas. The
2d day of our march the 1st Indian Re",
had got in the advance, and their advance
guard encountered some bushwhackers,
about 22o in number, who fired upon the
guard, and wounded two, a white man and
an Indian, they then took to the woods
and while our Regiment was skirmishiufr
with their rearguard the remainder escap
ed, aud then their rear guard followed
them at full speed. This happened 5 miles
below Lamar Mo. and about 40 from Ft.
Scott. That day we received the news of
a battle at Newtonia, Mo., between 500
men of Gen. Solomon's Brigade and some
3,000 rebels, ia which our troops were
badly whipped and 132 taken prisoner.
We received orders to hurry forward as
fast as possible, to join the 1st and 2d
Baigades atSarcoxie, distan

derstood why v.e had halted. After ta
king the precaution to approach on all the
roads, there was still one ''ratrhole" that

had not been stopped and out it shey went.
We camped at this place a few days and
then followd on the enemy's track. We
never couid come fairly up with him till
we arrived at tiis place, Oct., 22nd. When
at Bentonville, Ark , 25 miles east ef here
we heard of the enemy 4,000 strong at this
