FRIDAY MORNING,' NOV.1 1, 1861.
Opposition to the Administration.
v t. n of tha characteristic i a lre peo
pie to Cud fault wlih tbeirGovernmertt, Booh
. ,tienitinn r-enerallv exists io proportion to
the. derrB of freedom enjoyed. The people
. nrona to it ia Eoeliind, aad la this country
probablj mora than io any olher; because h"
we bare been nocuitomea to exercise o &'-"
. ni.... r iVnnnhi and exDreseion. We oa-
tarallj watch the servant we have placed io
power, wita a jealooa eje.
It ia eometlnea dlsoooraglnr toloynloitliena,
when they eee bow little confidence appeara to
ba reposed in tbe Administration by many of
tboae who were the moat forward ecd Inatra
metital in pUcing it In power. And this want
of confidence threaten! to rise Into aeriona and
determined opposition. Yet thia ahould not
dishearten those who love tbe Union and are
resolved to labor for Ita preservation. The Ad
ministration, if It baa to encounter the distrust
ad opposition of eom of ita late blustering
supporters, may, for that very reason, become
mora firmly seated in the affections of . a ' truly
loyal people, to whom the American Union ia
bnt another name for American freedom and
independence.
There is another reason why the threatened
opposition to the Administration by soma of its
lato orofeeacd friends should not excite serious
alarm. That opposition will arise from a re
fusal on the part of tha Government to carry
out those fanatical schemes which would con
solidate the South in the rebellion, aad render
dissolution ot the Uuion in lime Inevitable.
Let the Adminlttration keep ateadily in view
the enforcement of tbe Coustilntion end the
law", and neither it nor the country will have
anything to-fear. The rabid opposition of a
few fanatics, who have been trying to turn the
Union npsidc down lor the last twenty or thirty
years, will only knit the true friends of the
Constitution and tbe Government more firmly
together. .
The Southern Commercial Convention.
Uou.
Very ecanty reports of the doings of the re
ceut Southern Commercial Convention held at
Macon, Ga, have as yet reached us. We find
iu a'u exchange the followicg synopsis of three
measures suggested by the Convention in one
day to the Confederate Coogresc: , t , .
They recommend the Confederate Congress
to pass a law levying a discriminating duty oi
t:.ty per ctnt. agftiaH all goods imported into
the Confederacy "for Northern account" thus
asking Davis & Company to interfere between
buyer and seller in the moat arbitrary manner.
Next, tbey ask that "all cotton produce bills
be made payable in Europe," tbua attempting
ti effect a violent change in tbe current of trade,
which sets inevitably tusrard New York. --
And lastly, they urge tbe imposition of a tax
of twenty per cenl. upon bills of exchange pay
able; and "cf terTper cent, oh deb: due in tbe
United States. . ,
Tbe following ia atao given as one of the res
olutions adopted by tbe Convention: '
Retolvcd, That every ship entering our ports,
bringing valuable cargoes of necessaries for
our people, and supplies for our brave country
men in arms, shall be allowed to take back to
Kurope a cargo of cotton or other Southern
produce; provided, that such shipments of cot
ton shall be for manufacturers' account and lor
actual consumption.
Ou this the New York Pett remarks:
Wben it is considered that, as the Richmond
VVrii7 remarks, "the cotton States have but a
single crop, on tha sale of which they depend for
subsistence;" wben we remember tbat most of
tbe cotton planters are even obliged to mort
gage their crops before tbey are gathered for
Advances of food and clothing, and that their
inability to sell is already distressing them ex
ceedingly, this resolution " permitting " humble
applican.s under certain circumstances to boy
the precious cotton (on condition that tbey pay
for it) has a somewhat Chinese sound.
of Fugitive Slaves.
The Employment of Fugitive Slaves. in the War for the Union.
The New York World, referring to Secretary
Cameron's late letter of instructions to the
commanders of tbe forces accompanying tha
Naval Expedition! makes the following just and
sensible remarks:
We bave been of opinion from tha beginning
that little was to be gained by persistently stir
ring tbe black pool wnose fetid stench has filled
the nostrils of tbe country for nearly twenty
years. It has seemed to ns that tbia war ia too
earnest on both sides to be determined by any
sort of political bocus poena, and that tbe slori
ous old Union is to be restored by dint of lue-
cetsfuljtgiamg. I here U nothing In tbe cenaus
returns wbicb onght to cast a doubt on onr abil
ity to confront the rebels with at least man for
man at any point where it may be good strate
gy to give tbem Datue; ana a nead tbat tbinks
a well-aimed rifled cannon which Is understood
to be General McClellan's favorite arm will
not do just as good execution wben touched off
by a wbite soldier as dv a rnnaway slave, most
be under tbe influence of some of those strange
mepbitio vapors described by Swift in that de
lectable digression on infinity in the "Tale of
Tub." With tbe exception of a little atrip of
territory a few miles.wide.on the south bank of
the Potomac, we are completely outside tbe
rebel territory, with the necessity ef fighting
our way in, even for the purpose of making a
rtconneistanceot Its outer rim, while tbe slaves
are inside tbe rebel territory and under the
equally hard necessity of fighting their way out,
if they ehonld get out in numbers considerable
cnongh to make emancipation a capital means
of weakening the South, We imagine it would
be even more difficult for them to get outside
tbe circumference of secessiondom tban for loy-
al troops to get inside, f. tbe slaves bave neith
er arms, nor discipline, nor leaders. The few
scattered fugitives tbat succeed in finding their
way within onr -lines, are not of sufficient Im
portance to have any influence on the tescit of
the war; ' ' .' " "
In this stage of the contest, then, it would be
premature for the Government to proclaim, or
even to consider, tbe policy of general emanci
pation urged upon it by a lew over-xea'ooi ne
grophilists. Tbe adoption of tbat policy now
would divide and weaken the North witbont
making one bair white or black on the bead of
the rebellion. Mrs. Glass's exoellent receipt
tor cooxing a rarmu, wmcu DPgaa, "fl-it, catch
a rabbit," would be a sensible direction for
emancipating tbe Southern slaves. First, fight
yonr way into the Southern Bute. Wben we
shall bave struck such a blow as will giT as
free access to the slaves, or enable Them to run
away en matte to ns, the question will have as
sumed a practical shape, and can be decided in
toll view of tbe then existing circumstances.
It is a sufficient reply to those who nrga eman
cipation aa a means of prosecuting tbs) war,
tbat important military successes must preoede
emancipation in order to render it possible.
Wben the success of onr arms shall have taken
this question out of the limbo of sentimental
abstractions, and, by rendering emancipation
practicable, have made it a possible instrument
of waakauiog the eueoiy, It will bo-early enough
for the Government to consider ita exnediencv.

Col. Geary's Official Report.
The official report of Col. Geary's victory
near Harper's Ferry, about three weeks since,
has just been published. It contains little that
has not alreadv appeared in print Col. Geary
states his loss at tonr killed, seven wounded and
two taken prisoners; that of the enemy be esti
mates at one hundred and fifty. ' He confirms
the story of the crucifixion of our four killed by
tbe rebels. After tbey were shot down they
were charged on- by the cavalry and stabbed
through tba body, stripped of all their clothing,
not excepting shoes and stockings, and left in
perfect nudity. One was laid oat in tbe form
of crucifixion, with bis hands spread, and cat
through the palms with a dull knife.
Tbe Uolooel pays tbe louowing tribute to a
citizen of Steabenville, tbe gallant father of
several brave eons: . . ' . -
"It affords me pleasure to mention tbat Hon.
Daniel McCook (father of Gen. McC ), as an
amateir soldier, gun in hand, votunteered and
rendered much service during tbe engagement.
also mention like services rendered by Benja
min 3. Owen, Esq., of St. Louis. Beth of these
tentlemen were greatly exposed during the
action. -
Gen. Rosecrans's Headquarters.
A correspondent of tba Wheeling (Va.) In
telligencer, writing from tbe headquarters of
Guneral ftosecrans, wr-e nas shown by deeds
that be is (he man to fizht and command, says:
"We found Uen. Kosecrans'i neadqaarters to
be one of the most ordinary tenia on the
eron&j, not even having a board floor, its sim
pis furniture consisting oi two or three camp
stools and camp chests, and a bed of the most
pr'mitive character;. There was nothing what
ever aave the stars and stripes floating above to
uhow tbat it constituted tbe headquarters of tbe
armv of the United States In Western Virginia.
As to his present position and tbe movements
tbose c der his command, wa have but one
word to say: He knows what be Is doing, and
ahat he should do that the enemy are doing,
and what they can do. AH is quiet, and likely
be so. ; ; v -. ,

Gen. Rosecrans's Headquarters. Sketches of Generals Stone and Evans.
The following particulars in regard to tha
commander! of tha forces pitted against each
other recently at Edwards's Ferry, will b: in
teresting al the present time: " ?
Bilgadler-General Chaa. P. Stone Is a native
of Massachusetts, and bis first military career
bear data JD41, when.be entered West Point
as a cadet. In 1845 he stood seventh In a class
numbering forty-five. In July of that year ha
waa brevetted Second Lieutenant of Ordnance,
and from August, 1845, to January, 1846, be
was Aotlng Assistant Professor of Ethics, etc,
at tbe Military Aoademy. . On tbe 8th of Sep
tember, 1847, he was brevetted First Lieuten
ant for gallant and meritorious condoot in tbe
battle ol El Mollno del Rey, and on tbe 13th
of tbe same month waa brevetted Captain for
the same eonduot at Chepultepeo. He was
made First Lieutenant in tbe army in February,
1853, and resigned on the 17tb day of Novem
ber, 1856. - ..!. J.-"
On the breaking out of tbe present troubles,
he took command of the District of Columbia
Militia, and moved Jthem np In tba neighbor
hood of his recent station. On the formation
of tbe new regiments of tha regular army be
was appointed from the District of Columbia to
the Coloneloy of tbe Fourteenth United States
Infantry. His oommise'.eu bears date May 14,
1861. On the 17th of the aama month be was
appointed by Congress a Brigadier-General ef
Volunteers, and held tbe command of the Third
Brigade under General Banks. His command
was then temporarily separated from that of the
Major General commanding the department of
tbe Shenandoah, and be held tbe position In the
neighborhood af Edwards's Ferry, with a mod
erate force, With his headquarters at Poolesville,
He has always been spoken ol as a good soldier,
but this U the first opportunity that he has bad
to exhibit bis generalship, altbongh bis bravery
was fairly tested in Mexico.
. Brigadier-General Nathan George Evans Is
a native of South Carolina, and graduated at
West Point in 1844. He was appointed to a
Second Lieutenancy in the First United States
Dragoons in July, 1848, and was transferred to
the Second Dragoons In September, 1849. In
March, 1855, be became First Lieutenant of the
Second Cavalry, and was promoted to a Cap
taincy In tbe following year, which position be
held noder Major Van Dorn, wben tbe latter
commanded Ibe expedition against tbe Caman
cbes, In 1858, winning no little distinction for
his bravery In the severest battle of the cam
paign, near Wachlta village, in Texas, His
connection with tbe rebels Is cotemporaneous
with the secession of South Carolina, by whose
uorernorne was appointed Adjutint-Ueneralol
tna regular loroes or tbe state. He was subse
qaently appointed Brigadier General, and, in
conjunction with Generals Jackson and Cocke,
commanded the left wing of tbe rebel forces at
tbe battle of Bull Run, in whloh engagement he
waa In immediate command of the brigade
composed of Wheat's battalion, Colonel liar's
sevenin Louisiana Volunteers and tbe Wasb
ington Artillery.
More "Avenue" Scandal in Chicago.
Tbe famous Michigan Avenue in Chicago
was considered slightly in famous by the great
BcacH scandal, and now the famous Waba b
Avenue has got its scandal case. To make a
long (tory- s given In the Chicago Tribune
short, a Capt. Bdins, U. S, A., was found on a
late evening, under the bed in one of the cham
bers of tbe residence of Mr. Cms. A. Rooms,
a commission merchant. Mr. Rectus discovered
a pair of boots protruding from under a low cot
tage bed, and gave tt-e alarm. Mr. Rooias
with Mr. Dickinson, tbe former having a revol
ver and the latter a cane, went into the cham
ber, and discovered Bdns in his uniform ly
ing on his back close to the wall. Tbe account
proceeds :
They demanded of him ti come oat, which
he did, and while resting upon his knee, drew a
pistol from bis side pocket. Mr. Rogers at that
fired, tbe ball entering Burns' cheek, passing out
of bis month, and carrying with it one or two
teeth and aportton of the jaw. Burns instantly
returned the fire, the ball taking effect in Ro
gers' shoulder and inflicting a nesh wound.
Three or four more shots were interchanged
witbont effect, after which Burns rushed from
the room'. ' Rogers fired a parting shot lust as
Burns reached the top of the stairs, and immedi
ately npon tbe report of the pistol, Bu ns fell
beadiong down tbe stairs, supposing tbat be
was killed or mortally wounded, Rogers and
Ulckinson hastened down stairs, but lound him
nninjnred except by the first shot.
On tbe legal examination it was shown that
Burns had always borne the reputation of being
a quiet, peaceable and honest man. Until Jan
nary last be had been in the emplov of the
American Express Company, having charge of
tne rennsyivania central lreignt. .Before tbe
marriage ot Mrs. Rogers, then Miss Wood-
worth, an intimacy existed between the lady
and Capt. Barns, amounting in tba estimation
ot tbe pubiio to an engagement. Some time in
1860 this Intimacy was broken off, and in ' De
cember of the same year, Miss Woodwortb mar.
ried Mr. Chas. A. Rogers.
Tbe prosecution contended that Burns had in
traduced himself in this unusual manner, actu
ated by feelings of jealousy and revenge, for
tbe commission of some felony.
The defense urged in extenuation tbat an ex
tensive correspondence had passed between tbe
lady and tbe defendant; tbat tbe latter bad
these epistles in his possession at the time, and
was present to deliver tbem to the lady alone.
These are tbe facts in this mysterious affair as
delivered by tbe evidence. Tbe street and tea
table gossip has all sorts of rumors and absurd
stones in relation to it. Tbe public should with
hold any decision nntil such tims as a full trial
shall disclose all the facts in the case.

How the Pacific Telegraph Works.
Tbe business men of New York appreciate
tha commercial advantages of a telegraphic line
to tne racina. On tha Aral day alter commu
nication between this city and San Franoiaco
was established, over lorty purely business ots
patches were aant tbrcagii, besides many of a
congratulatory character. The rates now In
nse are $5.95 for ten words, and 49 cents for
each additional word which are regarded as
moderate for the distanoe, and are not likely to
be rednoed al present, in tbe aol ol congress
giving authority te build ibe line, it waa ex
pressly forbidden to fix tbe through rates above
St.Sfo for tea words, ana 3b cent tor eacn ad
ditional word; bat no definite rates were men
tioned for tbe way business. Mr. J, II. Wade,
President of tbs line, has telegraphed to this
city tbat a meeting of tbe Directors will soon
be held, and a tariff of rates made lor all the
Intermediate points. Until then, the through
ratea will ba paid for telegrams to Salt Lake
city, Carson City, Nevada Territory, and every
other atation on the route. In estimating the
cost of telegraphing from New York city, or
other points, to Ban Francisco, the regular rates
to St. Louis ara simply added to those which
now are, or may be, fixed for the Pacific line
beyond.
There is a difference ol about 4t degrees or
longitude between New York city and San
Francisco. If a telegram were instantaneously
sent over tha whole line, it would reach San
Francisco at a time, according to the docks of
that city, about three boura and fifteen minutes
before the time at which it left New York ac
cording to the clocka here. Thus a dispatch
aeat from this city at tha high business honr of
1U$ A. M., would arrive at am rranclaco be
fore tbe man to whom it was addressed waa oat
of bed; while a dispatch started from this oity
la the edge of the evening wonld find the same
man np to his neck In business. Though thene
astonishing things are theoretically poaaible,
yet, practically, It takes an appreciable space of
time to get a dlspatoh from New York to the
Pacific Tbe weather ia rarely favorable for
the telegraphlo ieat of working so long a dis
tance without ropeatlng; and, even If It were,
the various divisions ol tbe line would be scarce
ly ever unoccupied with business which oould
be suspended to Jet a dispatch straight through.
Under the present arrangement, the New
York telegram la copied four or five times be
fore it reaches San Francisco, and has to take
Its tarn with other dispatches al every repetition.
messages may ne sent and answers received in
tbe same day; but, if tbe wires are crowded
with business, communication back and forth
will probably take tart of two days. For all
practical purposes this is almost as good, though
not near so amazing, aa the Inatant telegraphic
bash, un specially important ocoaaiona, like
(be arrivals or European steamers, wben tbe at
mospbere along the whole line ia lust right, the
wires win ne worxea irom new I or a", and even
