We were doin fine! vr and acDSrentlv diecom-

suddenly masked battery opened on ns from
tbe woods on the other sldp of tbe lsgoon. The
sbott fell short of ns aV first, bnt the iort; sig

and then tbe shell 'exploded and seemed to lift
the whole eblp bodily out of the, water. The

six feet below tbe water line.' The plank was
fortunately not crushed entirely out of the open

Washburne's Report on Government
Army Sharks—Senator Boolittle's
WASHINGTON, Dec. 18.
, Wasnburne s report on uovernment con
tracts embraces the following items: April
123d, Alexander Camming!, of the New York
World, received authorized order of the Secret-try
of War, to purchase various army supplies,
in conjunction witu Governor Morton, with an.
thority to exercUe functions separately. Two
million of dollars were deposited with Messrs.
Dli, Ojdjke & Blatchford, subject to Cum
minga's draft. . Cummings drew a quarter of ;
million, ot wbicn ne says ne paid ninety tbou
sand to the Union Defense Committee, for tX'
peaces incurred, arid deposited one hundred and
sixtv thousand to his own credit, in .ths Park
Bank. Cummings employed as clerk, James
Humphrey, who made a large number of par
chases. He never knew Humphrey before, but
took him on (he recommendation of Tburlow
Weed. Cummings expended money according to
bis own fancy, without consulting the Govern
ment Quartermaster or Commissary, , He ex
pended twenty one thousand dollars for linen
panti ana straw nais, contrary to army regula
tions; bought beef and pork of Erastns Corn
ing tt Co . bardwara house, Albanv.'at the sug
gestion of one Davidson; also bought a lot of
scotcn aie, .umaon .porter, picaiee, nutter,
cheeeC, codfish, bemcge, tongaee; chartered
the steamer Coatzacoalcos at one thousand dol
lars per day,' without .examining , her., Cum
mings gave no bond, took no oath, says be turn
ed over the balance money, one "million seven
hundred and fifty thousand dollars, .to Sub
Treaaurer Cisco, but subsequently says be re
tained one bundrea ana lorty tnousina dollars,
accounted for by vouchers.,. This Inconsistency
the committee are unable to explain.' Cum
mlogs's account Is not yet filed, for settlement
at the War Department.' The committee ae
cote the Secretary ot War for extraordinary
conduct. In employing Cummings to do the
work of tbe regular Quartermaster 'and Com
mlasary, of high character and, qualifications,
then stationed at New York,' ". , . V, ,
Oa the subjeot of army supplies generally,
the committee find reprehensible neglect in ad
vertising according, to' army regulations, par
ticularly In the Western, Department. . Quar
termaster McKInstry waa in the babit of mak
ing requisitions on mercantile bouses for artl
cles, promising, them fair profit, Tbis profit
frequently amounteo to lorty per cent. Lou
tracts for, beef cattle were frequently fonnd
gravely corrupt., i ne Sibley contract is speci
ally noticed'. "It was for ten thousand head,
more or l(ai,1at elgbt'cent per ponod, delivered
at Waahington, and tWe and, three fourths at
Harrlsbnrg.- ' '; . ,h ",','".. .
Sibley &. Co. tub let the Whole contract to
Allerton; of New York,'' .whereby tbe former
made thirty-two thousand dollars, and the latter
twenty five thousand. ' " ".
' The committee say the erection of fortifica
tions at St. Louis was marked by extravagance,
Inaubordloatlon and fraud of an extraordinary
character.' In addition ti the facts heretofore
knownIt appears that the contract with Beard
was made by Fremont's special order and direc
tion, end 03e hundred and fifty one thousand
djllarr paid to "Beard before the date of the
contract. No specifications were made before
hand, and no bond given. The total amonnt
ordered by Fremont to be paid to Beard was
two hundred and forty six thousand dollars.
The actual cost was about sixty thousand doM
lure; dui Bears paia only Olteen thousand to
laborers; leaving forty thousand dollar due to
men whose families were Clamoring for' bread
when the committee were there. , Sixty thous
and dollars, ordered by Fremont, were paid to
Beard in defiance of Secretary Cameron's order
that no more money be paid. This was done
two days after' Fremont received Mr. Qtm-
ron's order. ' : " ' V "

Diai Si: I beg leave to call vour attention
to an "editorial" in your paper (weekly) of the

Sf an of Ohio," and in doing SO to say that the
writer is deseived, if be supposes that Judge
Swan was left off tbe ticket on aceonnt of his
residence in Columbus.. He was dropped for
the reason that be, ae a iudloial offioer, recog
nized the fugitive slave enactment of 1850 of
binding roroe in Unio: and tbe other two J odi
who were with blm in opinion, will be dropped
in ine same way as soon ss t&ey are reacned in
tbe order of time. We do not recognize men
to be Republicans . here in Ohio, who will, for
a moment, sustain wis miserable enaotment.
They were not so recognized at Philadelphia in
1856" ' ,. iui I
1 1 know there are polltiolina In our. ranks
who elm to emasoolate the Republican organi
zation with a view to their Individual aggran
dizement. . Let them beware; and let ut beware
of them. Take from the Republican party its
anti-slavery element, and yon leave it a lifelees

It it wero poasible to accomplish any victory
by any such "getting down stairs," I should
greatly prefer defeat, and thousands and tens
of thousands, who like yon and I, came from
the line ef the old Democratic party, would bow

The Revival of the Democratic
The Democratic State committee of Rhodi
Island have just held a meeting and resolved to
pot again into working- order the old Demo
cratic party," as being "tbe sursstand speediest
way ot dealing political death to those chlefest
sod most powerful enemies of the Union and
the Constitution tbe Abolitionists." That
being tbe sentiment of the-Democracy of
Rhode Island it perfcotly harmonizes with tbe
Democratic sentiment or tne. .Northwest,; and
we doubt not of the whole country..; , ," ,,. I
r In the Northwest the sentiment is wbnderfnl-
Iv strong, and It is purely a popular sentiment
as distinguished from a movement oi politician.
It lacks development, because tbe opportunities
of development have not ocoarred, though some
inaicauons oi n were aisciosea in tbe recent
State elections.' We. as journalists, see and
I feel more of tt tban appears upon the anrfao

lousinesteorresponaenoe. .abetters come to
daily from the seven Northwestern States, and
numerous or ne writer advert, to tn condi
tion of the country and assert their belief that
there is but one way out of tbe difficulties which
threaten th national existence, and - that 1
through the Democratic party. In. every in
stanoe where the Timet has suggested the ne
cessity of revival of the Democratic party as
essential to the national salvation, a responsive
chord in tbe popular heart has teamed to be
