rac In aristocratic England or monarchical

demanding the freedom of black men; their
next step will be to forge chains for the slavery
of white men.

naked deformity to the world. Whatever

"Old Ben Wade."
We had almost forgotten- that this' distla-
Juished Abolition agitator is atlll in Congress,
or Ave year Ben was relied upon by his col-
leagues U do the rough work of his party ia
tbe Senate, and be frequently intimidated "blus
tering slave-drivers" by tbe exhibition of un
usual musele. He wss not an advocate oi the
"code of honor," but In what ia technically
denominated a rough and tumble; be was con
sidered by hia admirers, in slde-bolds, the equal
of WUsoo.of Massaehutetta. Wiltonisanon
combatant, however, while Wade would rather
fight than eat., .. ,. V
Well, we see that this Western agitator baa
again been heard front he took bis seat ia the
Senate at the beginning of the present session,
but until last Thursday he sat as modestly as a
young lady al onrietening. Then be was
heard from by offering Ha petition from oltizens
Of Ohio asking that John C. Fremont be made
a Lieutenant General." In offering this modest
petition, we do not see that Mr. Wade offered
any observations in support of it; and in this
we are somewhat surprised. f.1 la true that tbe
pathfinder has suffered eocsiderable damage of
late, but the plucky Senator, should not aban
don him on that account. Until this session no
onv was louder in the advocacy of tbe most ab
ari theories than -this same Ben Wade, of
Ohio. Has the change of public sentiment in
his Bute, which elected a Union Governor and
Legislature lait fall, anything to do with bis
present conservative policy? His successor is
to be chosen this winter, which may account for
hi moderation.: If this bee it serves toahow
that tba wildest of these agitatora keep their
eyca upon the main chance, and that in their
pbrenslest moments there la always "method in

IT We publish In this paper an article from
the New York 7Yi6une, became of its merited
denunciation of the "vile brood of jobbers wbo
lie la wait for chances to become pubiioroo
bers." We have only to say to the Tribune,
that bo paper, in the Union contributed mote to
quartering this elan on the Treasury than it did,
and producing the occasion for giving them an
excellent opportunity to accomplish tbeir in
famous purposea
If the "Provost Marshal" should shoot tbe
detected speculator, "and hang hia official ao

Life at the Capital.
According to tbe Washington correspondent
of the New YorkJEwnfnoPoii.gayety prevails
at tbe National Capital this winter
One of tbe most striking features of life here
is the uttor carelesanes and tiuoueisnce of every
one. From Mrs. Lincoln, driving in her gaudy
coach, and Mr. Lincoln, amusing nlmseit witn
Herrmann's feats of "preatidigiation," down to
tbe young officers dancing gaily at the -balls,
every one seems to consider the present time
one especially created for amusement. There
is not tbe eligbtest seriousness anywhere tbat I
have been able to discover It Is all fun. And
any one who looks or BDeaki earnestly of tbe
critical condition of affairs is regarded as a bore
bv all bnt some of the few older beads. One
would think all the " fast " bots of tbe country
had come' to Washington, for none of the men
here seem to care for much else but jollity.
Tbe streets are thronged with offioera and pri
vates, all intent on amusement, and dashing
young cavalrymen clank their swords and jingle
their sours in danoinc rooms as well as bar
rooms. Tbe mournful faocs are all at tbe homes
tbat tbe war has made desolate
We give place to this that our readers may see
that, while our Government is on severe trial
for its. very existence, and hundreds of tbous
sods of our brave men are undergoing the hard'
ships of camp life, and thonsands have given up
their lives on tbe battle-field, leaving wives and
.LIU... n M.nn fcK1i lnaa. thfi fiuithnva"
of the oountry are congregated at Washington
enjoying their "fun." Mrs. Lincoln "splurges"
In ber "gaudy coach,' Old Abe "amuses him
solf with Hcsriunn'i feats," tbe "young offi
cers are dancing at tbe balls," and "clank their
swords and jingle their spurs" in the festive
danoe. Tbe Cabinet are busy giving out con
tracts, and their friends are pocketing their ill
gotten gains by tbe million; and Congress is
busy devising means to raise money to pay
them, by taxing the tea, coffee and sugar of tbe
families of the men who are on the battle-field
"Nero fiddled while Rome was burning."
Our Affairs with the British.
It is fairlv inferable from the reports from
Washington that if war ensues between this
oonntry and Great Britain, the responsibility of
such a calamity will not oe jusuy onargeaoie to
the American Government. It is said that the
Administration is disposed to aooede, nnder our
nreeent circumstances, to tne demands ot toe
land for reparation in the Trent affair, even
to the ffiviosr op of Masea and SIldelL This
would be a bitter pill for this nation to swallow,
but it will be submitted to If it seems to be the
only remedy for deliverance from a war witb
tba British. We, no doubt, have our hands full
ia tnins to suppress tbe rebellion, and aucoeed
in it we must, before we ean afford to attend to
outside issues. It may be humiliating Jo our
national pride and insulting to our honor, yet all
can be submitted to temporarily that we may
aooomutah the all-important objeot of main
taining the' unity of the States and crushing; out
rebel insubordination' . men wnen our internal
disorders shall have been healed, a day of reck
oning may come for England, wbea ber pride
and insolenee shall be rebuked. Our Govern
ment should exert itself to avoid a collision
with the British at this time. All our hopes for
the future demand it. England may believe
she has ns now in tbe trap which she bas aided,
thrpugh her hypooritioal anti-slavery profes
sions, in devising for our unwary people, but we
may disappoint Per Dy refusing to do proToaeu
into an unequal Ognt witn per at mis nine.
We clip the above from the Trumbull Demo
ertt, one of the ''Fusion Union" papers of the
Weatern Reserve. Tbe abolition' papers pre
fer! ed going' to war with a portion of our own
people rather than agree to any compromise to
settle differences in our own country. They
are, tt seems, ready to "swallow this bitter pill"
rather than go to war with England.,' "It may
be humiliating to our batiope! pride, and insult
ing to our honor, yet all can be submitted to
temporarily," ete.$ so tbat it don't conflict
witb the Chicago platform. .That must be pre
served at all coBts war, pestilence and fam

ICT The Cincinnati Time$, a violent "Fusion
Union'.' papar, speaking of tbe action of the
Administration generally, and particularly on
the Misotf and Supkxl affair, says:
God help tbe nation if these things are to
continue. We must confess we are losing our
nstienee. ' Tbe Congressional reports snow tbat
tbe War Department, at least, ia in the bands
of thieves. Thi masterly inactivity of m Ad
minitlratwn m erea only when it comet to the
plundering of the Treasury. The report of the
Congressional investigating vommuiee inrius
everv honest man with horror. It is the sad
dest exposition of t n national history.
It exhibits a degree ot corruption in toe war
and Navy Departments not expected in this
critical hour. Tbe publio treasury is in the
bands of thieves, whose only solicitude is plun
der. If Congress was honest, as it ought to
be. Simoa Cameron would bave been sorled
from hie office in diegrsce before this, and Fort
Layfayette crowded witn tbe weeds, tne cum
mingses, the Morgans, and the host of plunder
ers proved guilty by the investigation. But
even tuie terrioie exaioiuou ooea not seem hi
have created a sensation In Congress. Does
the plunder conspiracy extend even there 7
If the Administration, with its miserable and
almost intolerable army management, surren
ders Mason and Slldell, it will be tbe last hair
on tbe carnal 'a back.. The truth most come,
and the sooner it is spoken tbe better. The
people cannot and will not support an Adminis

dear to them home, oountry, freedom, peace

tbe Cabinet for the better, and tbat ooo, they
will demand a change of servants, and enforce
their demand. Onee reuse the whirlwind, and

without immediate and thorough reform, will

A Singular Incident.
Tbe Lynchburg RepuSUcun publishes the foK
lowlns inoldent. remarkable alike for its singu
larity aa well as for its melancholy fulfillment
to the brother of one of tbe parties conoerneu.
Just before tbe war broke out, and before
Lincoln' nroelamatlon was Issued, a VOUOg Vir
glnlan, namsd Bummerneia, was Tiimiug u
oity of New York, where he made the acquaint
. . Ml. t . 1 . 1 .Ua
ance ot two Misses noimes, oi "
Vermont. He became somewhat intimate with
the yanni ladiea. and the lntereoowe seemed
to be mutually agreeaote- toe prooiamuuH
was issued, and the whole Nortb thrown into a
bliza of excitement. - On visiting tbe lames
one evenlag, at tbe hour of parting tney re
marked to Summerfield tbat their present meet,
ing would probably be tbeir last they mast
hurry borne to aid in making up the overcoats
and olotmng tor tne volunteers irom meir uwu.
Summerfield expressed hia regret tbat tbey
must leave, but at tbe same time especially re
quested them to eee that the overooats were
made well, as it was bia intention, if be ever
met the Vermont regiment in battle, to kllone
of them and take his coat. , :, '
Now for the sequel. Virginia seceded. , The
Seoond Vermont Regiment, a portion of which
wss from the town of Waterbury, was sent .to
Virginia. The battle of Manassaa was fought,
in which they ware engaged, and ao was Sum
merfield. During the battle, Summerfield
marked his man, not knowing to what State be
belonged; the fatal ball waa sped on Its errand
of deatb; the victim foil at the flash of the gun,
and, upon rushing up to secure tbe dead man's
arms, Summerfield observed tbat be haia fine
new over con t strapped to his back, whlob he de
termined to appropriate to hia own use. The
fight was over, and Summerfield bad time to
exumlne his nrize. when, remarkable as it may
appear, tbe coat was marked with tbe name of
Thomas Holmes, and in the pockets were found
letters eigued with tbe names of the sisters
whom Summerfield bad known in New York,
and to whom be bad made the remark we hare
quoted, in which tbe man was ..addressed as
brother. Tbe evidence was conclusive he had
killed the brother of bia friends, and tbe remark
wbluh be bad made in jest bad a melancholy
fulfillment. We are assured this narrative is
literally true. Summetfield now wears the
coat. and. our informant states, is not a little
impressed with the singularity of tbe coinci
dence. v t . : - . '
The Warrior.
The (ion plated steam frigate Wanirr, which
is expected shortly to make her appearanoe on
tbe American coast, is tbe first armor-olad ves
sel built for the British navy. When comple
ted ( last Summer), her armament waa ts fol
lows: Tnirty-four 68 poundtw, smooth bore,
placed in the broadside ports; and on tbe upper
deck, two 100-pounder Armstrong guns, on
pivots, (one forward and tbe other alt), three
4U-pounders, a us ana xo-pounaer, Armstrongs
and a 24-pounder brass howitzer. (By our la
test disoatobee, per Arago, however, we learn
that she is to be supplied with eight, instead of
two, lUU-pouaders, ana tnree iu-pouoaers, in
stead of 40-oounders.) - 6he carries 650 men,
and with ber shot, shell, etc., on board, draws
25 feet 6 incbea forward, and 86 feet 6 Inches
aft. Her propeller ie 34 feet H inohea in diam
eter. On ber first trial (from London to Ports
mouth), with the wboleof her fore and aft sails
set, and engines making 48 revolutions per
minute, a speed of 13)4 knots waa obtained.
During twenty hours steaming, she consumed
100 tuus of coal. She left Spithead Oot. 15,
for a seoond trial in Stokes Bay, where ibe
averaged over fourteen knots (14.354), her en
gines making a trifle over 64 revolutions. ' The
Black Prince, another ship tbe same eise and
description of the Warrior, has been completed
In England. On ber trial trip, abe made H
knota. These vessels are now the fastest in
the British navy, and both naarlv ready far sea.
But they bave yet to encounter tbeir first gale
on the ocean. Whether tbey have been built
witb strength proportionate to their immenae
weight, and great length (said to be over four
hundred feet), or whether their massive plating
In a heavy sea will ttraln the vessels, become
loose, and produoe leaks of a dangerous char
acter aa in tbe oaseof tbe La Gloire (French)
a few weeks mev determine. A gale auob
as that which dlsabled'tbe Great Eastern might
settle tbe question.
The Bill Relating to Sutlerships
Senator Wilson's bill affeoting tutlerships
empowers the commissioned officers of each
regiment to elect a sutler, without regard to the
claims of present Incumbents. It prescribes
that tbe articles to be sold by tbe sutler shall
be determined by Board, consisting of the
Quartermaster, Commissary and inspector-ben
erals of the armv, and that none others shall
be allowed to be sold; that the Quartermaster
and Commissary of the regiment snail In con
cert with sotber commissioned officers, decide
weekly tbe prloes to be charged, and that the
list ot prices snail be sent to tue vivision-txen-eral
for bia approval, who shall tend it to the
Inspeotor-Ueneral for bis approval. 1 it pre
scribes that any sutler charging higher than the
approved rates, or who shall give false weight,
or In any other way cheat the soldiers, shall up
on proof or tne faot before the colonel, ituar
termaster and Commissary of the regiment, be
fined fifty dollars, one-half of the fine accruing
to tbe Informer, and all bis property within tbe
lines ot the army shall be confiscated to tbe nse
of tbe Government ana snail be removed ana
be forever ineligible to be reappointed to the position
in any regiment. WesA. Cor. N. Y.
