COLUMBUS. QHjOe '
WEDNESDAY MORNING. OCT. 16, 1861.
The Tripartite Treaty.
' It if announced In foreign journals that EDg
Frenoa and Spain hate entered Into a ttl
nuttta treats or agreement fot the seiaure of
tha revenue acciulDK in the principal porU of
Mexico and the appropriation of one half the
same to tbe payment of olaimi, whloh they pro
fees to have against the latter country.
Tripartite is understood to mean consisting of
three pattj. It may hate referenoe to the par
ties to the treaty or agreement or to the suoieot
.,,. r.r it. aiinnUtinn. or to both. In this
ftiuiA It items there are three parUes to the al
leged treaty, and that the menus collected or
more properly seized is first to be hsired-one
hair to be retained by Mexico, and the other to
be divided among the three powers, England,
France and Spain.
The United States as well as the parties to
the tripartite treaty has claims against Mexico.
Bat it does not appear that we were aiked to
become a party to the treaty, and thus make It
a qaadrnple alliance. It has been asserted in
an Eoglish journal that the treaty had the con
cnrrence of oar Government, but there does not
appear to have been any authority for the state-
ment. ' ,
England, France, Russia.tta., have long been
attending to the case of a Uck man In Eu
rope'. Now it seams they are disposed to sxtend
their kind offices t a patient on this continent,
and administer npon her goods and chattels
whlls she Is yet reckoned smong tbe living.
This is hardly, according to tbe oommon under
standing, in due course of lewr d " 7
be all right according to me course o.
U Is said that Mexico, in order to save hersell
from the three busxirds that are noveriog
her yet animated form, has applied to tne unj
.a ri.im f, a loan of irom four to ten mil
Hon dollars, and that M.nlster Coaww thinks
our Government should grant the application aa
meaeure of poUcy. It would no doubt be a
very good thing on our part to let Mexico have
the money, if we have it to spare, as it would
secure her friendship and gratitude, and con
vince the trlpartites that we are still strong in
the "sioews of war." Bat whether we can
mike ths loan or not Is a question to be settled
in Cabinet council.
There is something significant in this joint
alliance of England, France and Spain, in re
gird to Mexico. A primary object Is to try the
metal of the United States. If Mexico cannot
help herself, and we cannot help her in her pres
ent strait, the next step the tripartite powers
will take may be to establish a joint protector
ate over the "sick" Republic, and eventually
divide ber landed estate between themselves.
We know what extravagant notions some of
oar own leading men entertain and it may be
that some European statesmen oherish Ideas
still more visionary. It may be that some Eng
lishmen are dreaming of ultimately anfexlng
our Northern States to Csnada J that some
Frenchmen have dim, yet pleasing anticipations
of reviving and perfecting some sort of an ob.
solete claim to Louisiana and the Southern
States, while Spanish Dons may be even think
ing that a Captain-Generalship over a few of
our States in tbe neighborhood of Cuba would
be a fat and agreeable office. These points
have, we presume, been discussed and arranged
tj their mutual satisfaction by nobles ana gen
tlemen belonging to the three powers.
All thin, our readers will est, is harmless
sport. Not altogether harmless; for it fosters
in the European mind the notion that the Uni
ted States have become divided and weak, and
are, therefore, a subject of lawful plunder.
would be well to check the first motions to carry
out such an extravagant surmise; otherwise, we
mav have to teaoh foreigners the folly of enter
tainingft, in a more decisive and expensive mode.
The Winter Campaign.
We msy consider, we suppose, the summer
camnaltrn as about over, for we hear talk of
coins; Into winter quarters.
Reckoning from tbe bombardment of Sumter
and tbe call of the President for three months'
volunteers, 'to tbe present time, the summer
campaign bas lasted six months. It has pro
duced some good results and some rather bad
ones. Its record Is before tha country; but we
have now neither the time nor Inclination to
dwell upon it. '
But what of the winter campaign? We trust
that this talk of going Into winter quarters does
not mean that operations are to be suspended or
even slackened during the next six months; but
that on tbe contrary still greater vigor and effl
ciency are to mark the movements of the Union
forces, military and navaL ' . '
It Is stated that winter quarters are being
prepared at Washington for sixty thoosand
troops. This means, we preAme, (hat that
number is to be retained as a guard for the na
tional Capital, while the remainder of tha
Grand Army is to be divided into divisions, ac
cording to General McClxllan's plan, and
take the field for active and offensive opera
tions. ' - . u'"-. " '''. '
It Is gratifying to note that General Mitch
zll, now In command at Cincinnati, has been
appointed to bead in person an expedition to
move through Kentucky, drive ZoiAioorm
from the Cumberland Gap, and Winter in Ten
nessee, or fnrtber South, If desirable. We hope
to hear of other expeditions moving southward
for winter quarters. Why can we not hare one
sent down the Mississippi, to co-operate with
our fleet, which either is, or ought to be, in pos
session of New Orleans'!
It was in mid winter that tbe decisive battle
of New Orleaps was fought, under tbe gallant
lead of " Old Hickory." Il would be even a
more memorable and a more glorious thing, ii
we could, during the ensuing winter campaign,
have another like decisive battle fought for tbe
Union In the same vicinity. Cotton bales, of
which an abnndance are there accumulated,
could be Used as a protection against driving
storms and against the bullets of the infuriated

The Humbug Knights of the Golden
MARION, O., Oct. 11, 1861.
Ma. Eprroa: I desire, through the medium of
your valuable paper to speak to the Democracy
of Ohio, npon a question In which the honor
and loyalty of the Democracy of the Bute, and'
not less so the honor and loyalty of the Democ
racy of Marion county, is Immediately Interest
ed. I refer to tbe pretended discovery of "a
Castle of the Knights of the Golden Circle" in
this county, aid the belief in the minds of many
unsophisticated persons throughout the State
that such an order does really exist among us
nay, that It permeates every county of Ohio, if
not every State of the North. It is proper that
the spread of this idea, for onr own safety, honor
and welfare, as well as to prevent the deleteri
ous effect such a thing must have npon tbe
South, who, taking the sensational reports of
the Republican press, will be stimulated to
more determined opposition to the Govern
ment, with the belief that they really have allies
in the North in the shspe of "Knights of the
GoiHm Circle." an order the significance of
whiob is well understood by the Southern reb
els I say it is proper, nay, Imperative, that
tbe spread of this error should be arrested.
As a resident of Marlon county, as a citixen
of Ohio, as a Democrat, I desire to aay that I
do not believe any such organization at above
mentioned exists in Ohio, and A-notc that no
such order exists in my county.- I do not be
Ueve, despite the arrests of. prominent Demo
crats (myself among the rest), that there is a
man so lost to all sense of cltisensbip; so de
void of loyalty to tbe Government, under tbe
blessings or wbicn be lives, as to wish its over
throw, much less take, or administer an oath
"to neither rest or sleep" and "to wade in blood
knee deep" to remove Abraham Lincoln from
tbe Presidential, unalr, to jrnicn ne bas been
legally elected, 'and place Jefferson Davis, a
traitor to bis country, in nis place.
As this story originated in this county, and
as my name is somewhat familiar to the De
mocracy of tbe State, yon will permit me to
sive an txpott of the pretended " expose " npon
which these rumors, as well as the arrests of
mvself and others have been predicated.
It will be remembered that soon after the fall
of Sumter a perfect reign of terror pervaded
the entire North; particularly so In Ohio.
Every county felt the blighting influence of this
led spirit Indeed every township. Mobbing
of Democratic -offices, Democratio editors and
leading Democrats, were common occurrences
in no county was tnts spirit more determined
implacable and wild than in Marion county. I
myself, was met npon ths streets and beaten,
and mv office entered bv a mob. and waa onl
prevented Deter aemonsnea oy tne timely inter
position of friends. Nor this only; but I and
others were aubseqiently repeatedly threatened
ana myseu Dang ana Darned in effigy. each
was the condition of things when Democrats
rose in their might and mijesty In this county,
pledging tnemseives one to another tj protect
eaon and an yrrom moo violence, so long as tbey
obeyed tbe Constitution and laws of the United
States." This pledge waa only semi-secret
witn only enough eecrecy to become organized.
and enough leakage to it to let tbe mob-Republicans
know their fate should thsy attempt
again to exercise mob spirit noon peaceable and
law-abiding citizens. This was all there was
of it. It had the effect to quiet everything, and
comparative peace ensued. Of course when
me oojeci tor wnica ii was started disappeared
the organisation ceased, and bad not been
thought of for weeks, if not months, nrior to
the election. , .
A few days, however, before the election, an
extra appeared, Issued from ths Republic of
fice of this place, tbe editor of whloh being an
irresponsible person, oontsining a pretended
txpm of the "Knights of the Golden Circle."
Ae it was iasued by an Irresponsible party, so
was the pretended "proof signed by irresponsi
ble parties; tbe so called "facta" being but a
coDgiomemuon or irana ana political clap trap,
gotten np originally with no other porpose than
that of carrying tbe county election, but subse
quently turned into an inetriment of personal
ana pauuau perovcuvion.
Tee pretended "proof" epon whleh currency
obtains that aa order of the Knights baa been dis
covered in this county, and npon which I was ar
retted, is a lorgerj nouung more and nothing

he ever beard of any such aa order, and th
only time he ever heard the oath of resistance
to his Government, was when C. Martin repeat
it In his hearing, and through him to a young
lad nsmed Cheney. - Now the pibllc will bear
in mind that both Martin and Cheney are Re
publicans; that It took place at a Republican
meeting in ureea tamp township; mat tbe wit
nsesee are Republicans, and that thev were an

was to resist mobs upon Democrats, and protect

anawered it. He then save me whisky to drink ;
I drank it. Then be wanted me to admtnlater
the following oath, being tbe second one in tbe
Republican circular, to wit:
And I furthermore promise swear,
the presence of Almighty God and the members
of lbs Golden Circle, that I. will not rest or
Icen nntil Abraham Lincoln, now President,
shall be removed from tbe Presidential chair;

I refused to take it. He then wanted me to
administer it to S. Cheney. That I refused to
do, as I did not know it, having never taken It
or heard of It before. C. Martin tried to ad
minister II tj me. Then C. Martin said It over
to me. and I to S. Cheney at C. Martin's re
quest. I "saw nobody present; they said some
body was present. There was a buggy close by.
If there were enybody nesr, they were conceal,
ejd. C. Martls tben inquired if Dr. Christian
and Tom Hoduer, or Marion, ana otners be

I told him who. C. Martin wanted me to go
and get the papers tbst a. Lneney migbt put
his name to It. told him there waa no
name to It. C. Martin said he wanted to
get the paper so aa to come under tbe first oatb,
as ne bad taken tne seoona mat mgni. i ney
did not get the papers of me. This is about all
that I recollect.
Samuel Cheney then told me that If I bad
brought tbe papers to have falm sign his name,
be would have snatched It from me; and tbey
took II to Marion. Then we parted. I solemn
ly swear that I never saw said oath or heard of
It from any Democrat. The first time I ever
heard It, was from C. Martin. I never knew
ot a Democrat taking it, or heard of one. Tbe
next day tbey came out and took me to Marlon.
Tbey fetched a eample pistol to me, my father
and John Rice, before Ibey came to town.
They came to my father's with this ssmple of
pistols. I asked bim If ne waa not around de

I told him I did not need make any choice. I
never agreed to help him aid Jeff. Davis
When we came to Berwick, at Joe Robinson's, I
heard them telling what they wereglvlog these
men that belonged to tbe order. I also swear
that I am now, always wss, and always will be

From tbe complexion of the eleotlon returns

little doubt that the Democrats have a majority
of the aggregate popular vote, and probably
have elected a majority of members to the

tbe western part or tbe state.
It further adds, in another article:
The returns of the eleotlon are not sufficient
to determine tbe political complexion of the

crats have gained largely, and possibly elected
a majority to tbe House of Representatives.

Bis On the night of the Si of Ootober, at 13
o'clock, I started from tbe summit of Cheat
Mountain, to make an armed reconnolssance of
the enemy's position on tbe Green Brier river,
twelve miles In advance. Our force consisted
of Howe' Battery, 4;h regular artillery, Loom

of Damn's battery, Virginia Volunteer artillery,
24th, 25th and 32J Ohio regiments, 7th, 9tb,

in all about five thousand. Milroj's 9th In
diana drove in tbe enemy's advanced pickets,
and deployed lo our right, driving the enemv
on that flank into his entrenchment.
Kimball's 14th Indiana was advanced direct
ly to tbe enemy's front and rightto drive bis
advanced regiments from a position suitable for
our artillery; this was soon done In gallant
style, and our batteries promptly took their po
sitions witbin about seven hundred yards of the
entrenchments and opened Are. Some of the
enemy's guns were visible and others concealed.'
