Tbo New York .Times which has long
been nofriondly to Oon. Fromont, renders,
through a letter from iU Washington corres
pondent tho following tardy justice to that
"Speaking of the success of Foote and
Porter, does it occur to you to look back
and give credit where credit is due, to the
man who planned the enterprises which
have yielded such abundant returns! Do
you recollect that among the first charges
that were brought against Fremont waa tho
one that ho was wasting meneyirt building
gun-boats to be used on the Western rivers,
and that an unending flood of ridicule and
abuse was heaped upon what wns called his
visionary Bchemef Fremont has not been
permitted to reap tho full harvest of the
seed ho planted, but the future will know
that for tho fall of Fort Henry and probably
for tho ultimate reduction of Columbus and
the clearing out of tho Mississippi, tho na
tion will bo indebted to Gen. Fremont's
foresight and adaptation of means to an end.
The campaign of the west is coming batk
to the lines upon'which Fromont stood
when his triumphant career was cut short.
It is demonstrated that it will bo a success
hereafter,, only in that his well-digested
plans are carried out. Thus time and cir
cumstances are vindicating him almost bo
foro the ink is dry upon the paper that
doomed him to inaction, Rod for a timo to
public censure." ' '
Thus truth prevails at last 1
What Must Now be Done.
From the N. Y. Independent.
, A nation resting nod rustling in idleness
now calls for fighting men and fighting
measures. Millions and hundred of millions
of capital nre now ready, waiting that em
ployment which peace can only give it. Bus
iness men hero and elsewhere, at homo and
abroad, in England, France, China every
where, havo como to a pause. They wait,
and will wait, for a movoment on tho ever
"peaceful Poloinnc." Whoever else waits
and is idle, let not an army of six hundred
thousand men wait or bo idle a day longer,
whilo rebellion, disgrace, and ruin all
si are us in the face, We cannot, must not,
fritter away another hour; wo roust 6trike
the rebels so they will feel it. Thus far
wo havo been dealing with "our dear South
ern brothem." It is high time that wo
new our men that we knew the enemy
a wicked band of conspirators and dealt
with them in a becoming manner. Every
man of these traitors, should bo made im
mediately to fool tho crushing power . with
which they are contending. The "peculiar
institution" should do longer remain un
touched. A stroke there will make them
feel. Tho property of every rebel in
arms should bo couhscatou. buch a blow
to their pockets would make thorn feel. If
II such blows fail, tho neck should bo the
next spot in order. Try them thcrvi, a few
hundreds of them, and thoy will think wo
are in earnest. ...
The army correspondent of tho World,
who has just been over tho Bull Run battle
field of July, makes tho following almost
credible statement in his letter dated
Centrevillo, March 15th:
Mrs. Butler, whose Lusbnnd owns tho
farm house shelled by Ayres guns, took
mo into the attic rooms where our 12-pound-er
went through, and talked with mo a long
while about tho events subsequent to tho
battle of the 18th. Her sympathies are
on tho rebel sido, and so I cannot disbelieve
her frightful and sickening narrative of the
atrocities of tho victors. Nineteen of our
men wero buried near her houso. But in
a few weeks every corpse had been dug up,
the Jlesh boiled or hacked from the bones
and the latter distributed as mementos of
southern conquest and barbarism.' Tho
stench engendered by this monstrous pro
cess was so horiblo that tho family had to
leave the place, and much sickness ensued
among the troops. Mr. Butler confirmed
the statement ot Dis who. u nereis no
doubt of its truth. . Among the stutf left bo
hind at the camps, joints of human vertebrae
and buman skulls, scraped auu polished,
have been found to-duy. Mrs. Butler told
me that on the night of tho 20tb a moun-
tod Federal courier came within their Hues
and asked for Gen, McDowell's headquar
ters. As be put the question ho saw the
Palmetto in the hat of the South Caroliua
guard, and put spurs to bis horse, but was
shot and killed. Dispatches in cipher were
found oo his parson. . Ho was buried, but
dug up within a week, tho nosh boiled from
his bones, and luo latter exuiuilea as em
blems of "so invader's fate." ;
Gen. McClellan on Slavery.
I was yesterday informed by ona of Gen.
McClellan's most intimate friends that
approved most heartily tho President's
emancipation proclamation, and that he has
been very much misunderstood by the coun
try generally as to bis views on the slavery
question, as it connects itself with the war.
This friond asserts that, Gen. McClellan be
lieves that the country will sea do lasting
peace till slavery is destroyed, and that
is pot s pro-slavery roan, as some persons
have stated. . It is further said of him, that
as a soldier he has been very careful of
Speech ou all such matters, but that he has
intended that do officer of the Potomao
army shall ever return a fugitive slave, and
that the few isolated, cases that have occur
red did Dot .meet with his approbation.
That be ordered the arrest of Gan. Stone
a well-known fact, and it is further known
that when bis attention bas been repeated
ly called to the' fact that fugitives slaves
were in the camps of tho goveruraoat troops
across the river, lie Has replied that

We commend the following most senii-
blo remarks, which wo clip from the Toledo
Commercial, as worthy of consideration by
every ono. 1 ba uommcrnai in luo most
mild And careful torms lays bare tha ract
that io the Southern States, real, "popular
severcignty ' has not existed. The state
ment of the simple fact, that in evory boutn-
ern State, Constitutional prohibitions of
any and overy thing touching or looking to
tho emancipation of slaves, have existed
for many years, show bow completely s
class interest and s class power have boeo
placod nbove tho reach of iue people.
I his point has been placod clear beyond
any possiblo reach by the people, and just
as many bars interposed to prevent single
cases of emancipation as the ingenuity of
man could devmo. But to the article from
In tho sense manifestly intonded by tho
framcrs of tho Constitution, the peoplo ofj
tho boutii have tailed toproservo, and Uon-
gress has failod to guarantee to them Con
stitutions Republican iu form. Herein was
tho origin of the rebellion, lho fathers of
the Republic entertained tho most perfect
confidence that slavery, and all other ex
ceptional institutions, would gradually disap
pear betore the intluonce of popular govern
ment, ovon when political power was re
stricted to tbo free men within tho States.
Slavery, liko all other class interests, be
ing exclusive, it follows, from tho nature of
things, that the interesls- of all those who
are excluded from its benefits, nro against
tha institution; hence, that, if their will
could steadily prevail, slavery would finally
be destroyed by tbo free operation of Dem
ocrlic influences. Thoy wore full believers
in tho principles of popular sovereignty, or,
in other words, of the capacity of mankind
Wo have, to-day, full faith in that prin
ciple, and could it be thoroughly secured io
the Southern btates, wo would look to no
other remedy for existing or for future di
Oiculties. If it is not thoroughly secured,
wo must adopt other measures, for to leave
all the causes which produced the rebell
ion, in full operation, would bo national
In an article published a few days since,
we took lho ground that, for the reasons
therein set forth, there were no Constitution
al Governments in tbo Southern Slates, and
no means, except a resort to tho extreme i
right of revolution, by which tbo poople
could reform the old or adopt now Cousti
tutions. Wo hold tbatuuder the provision
of tha United States Constitution, to which
we have referred, it is clearly tho duty of
Congress, in this emergency, to guarantee
to tho peoplo of tha Southern States Dem
ocratic Constitutions,' and, to that end, to
authorize tho calling of conventions for that
purpose. Iudoed, the provision may have
been intended to meet precisely such emer
gencies. 1 Congress, however, will not per
form its whole duly tinloss it shall also re
quire that theso Constitutions shall provide
methods by which the peoplo, ot their own
motion and without resort to the extreme
right of revolution, may modify, amend, or
changotheir Constitutions. This would be
secured by a provision which would recog
nize the right of instructions as a Uonstitu
tional right, making tho will of tho majority
authoritative upon the official, and a refu
sal to comply with it, a disqualification for
office. This would accomplish tho object
which the framcrs of the Constitution
sought to secure. This would secure to the
people their right of sovereignly, snd,
though their action, load a very good result
which it is possible to attain.
Gen. Fremont's Department.
Tho Washington correspondent of the
Tribune is informed that the Mountain De
partment extends no further South than
Kooxvillo. . Ho Bays Eight months after
the right timo, Gen. Fremont is appointed
to the very " command to which Secretary
Chase sagaciously rocommonded him to the
Government before it bad been placed io
tho power of Patterson to throw away vic
tory, and wound the nation at Bull Run.
A letter is in (ien. remont s possession
from Secretary Chase, written on the 4th
of August, 1861, in which the latter says:
"I have never ceased to regret that the
suggestions .which I ventured to make re
specting rour employment after your return
from Paris wore not adopted. I think your
services are of the highest value where you
are. I still think that tha theater which
proposed for your action would have been
more important. - The first part of my wish,
as you perhaps remember, was, that you
should assume the command in the Shen
andoah Valley and vicinity, in place of Gen,
Patterson.' Had my views beea adopted
only to this extent, I am persuaded our
army would now have been in possession of
Manassas ana tne wnoio una 01 commnmcation
with Western' Virginia would have
been open, for sure I am that Johnston
would never have escaped you."
Tha whole country will echo the distin
guished Secretary s regret. Had Die earn
est recommendation to the President, and
Gen. Scott, and members of the Cabinet
been heeded, this war would long since have
been ended, the finances of the countr
been in a very ' different condition from
what they are now, and the bitter cup
this coming taxation averted from the lips
01 tne people. . ., ,t

Eloquent Extract. Rev. Mr, Batlellel
a member of the Western Virginia Consti

"My past and present are here, and if

His providence may yet be in store for vs.
It has been as a follow observer, and I will
add, as a fellow sufferer with them, that my
judgment of tho system of slavery among
us has been formed. We have seen it soak

not the least, we nave seen its own chosen

ted, by dooming my child, and every man's
child that must labor, to a virtual and help
less slavery. And, as the natural outgrowth
of this, we have seen this huge barbaric
raid against popular rights, and against the
world s last hope.. It bas been the merit of
other attempted revolutions , that their mo
tive, at least, was a reaching upward and
forward after liberty ; it is the infamy of
this that it is a reaching downward and
backward after dospotism. It would put
back the band on the worlds dial a thou
sand years. It would put out the world's
light in tho darkness of utter and dreary
despair, burely to the extent that we have
suffered from these ills, our very manhood
calls upon us to guard by overy reasonable
preventive against their return."
Mason and Slidell.

produced a pleasurable feeling with the real
people of England, and adds: ' 1 ;
The Soulhorn Commissioners, agents and

to return homo without having accomplish-1

obstacle in the way of success. Slidell

Monet in New York. The World of
the 151b. says: -
There is more active demand for money,
but the supply is in excess of the demand,
owing to the arrangement among the banks
to use tbo demand notes in their possession
for call loans to government to the extent
of $20,000,000, and tho certificates of these
loans as cash to settle their daily balances
to each other at the clearing bouse. This
is a virtual expansion of 120,000,000 de
termined upou by the banks, and it will ad
vance the price of government securities,
thus giving them an opportunity to sell at
satisfactory prices those in which their cap
ital is at present locked np. ine drdks
have already deposited in the sub-treasury
about $4,000,000 domand notes, and if the
sub-treasury disburse rapidly the demand
notes will return to the banks, and thus en

$20,000,000 by the uso of about $5,000,

Message.' ' Tbe following is ths conclusionT
of iU article: ,
This messsge will devclope s much great
or measure of sympathy for tbe North than'
has hitherto been sbown in Eoropev and
will also aid the termination of lbs war.
Tbe time bas gone by when harm could be
done in tba border States by such a prop
osition. The union is thoroughly "re-estab
lished in Kentucky, Missouri, Maryland,'
Delaware and Western Virginia, and Ten
nessee and Eastern Virginia will soon be
quiescent. Tbe work of consolidation baa
commenced, and Mr. Lincoln bas evidently
come to tbo conclusion that it can only be
successfully accomplished by great move-'
ment for emancipation. He baa done tbe
right thing at ths right moment, and we
may safely sdd that be is tbe right roan in
the right place. If he accomplishes tbe
work he bas cut out for himself, be will
raise himself to s higher niche than any of
his countrymen. Even the fame of Wash
ington will fade before the glories of tne

Death of Ben McCulloch.
General Ben McCulIocb, who is reported
among the killed in the battle of the Ox-
ark Mountains, was a Tennesseean by birth,
and a vagabond and traitor by nature. : He
went to Texas iu 1835 with Crockett,
fought the Mexicans, and afterwards the
Indians; settled io Texas, and took part in
the border quarrels between Texas and
Mexico. Tbe first act or treason for which
be became known was committed in De
cember, 1842, when he made part of a band
which attacked tbe town of Mier. . The
TexaDS were io turn threateded by a vastly
superior force under Ampudio; and in or
der to secure their retreat, Fisher, the Col
onel in' command, sent McCulloch with
detachment to gather horses and mule
from the surrounding oouotry and bring
tbem into the town. McCulloch got the
horses, but persuaded tbe men under bis
command to desert and leave their- com
panions to their late, whioh waa decimation
by the Mexicans and long imprisonment
and suffering for tbe survivors, -
McCulloch explained away this set of
treachery, was forgiven, sod was afterwards
a member of the Texan Legislature, a ran
ger and spy in tbe Mexican war; in 1855
United states Marshal or Texas, and since
tbe outbreak of this rebellion a traitor to bis
country. He wss a dashing partisan lead
er, but not a good General. N. Y. Pott.
The President's Message.
The Emancipation Message of the Presi
dent's is meeting with extraordiuary favor
by all classes, save a tew semi-secessionists.
Even many of these are forced into acquies
cence, and comfort themselves by saying
that it Ss a rebuke to the "radicals who
have demanded immediate and uncondition
al emancipation. . , It will be found however,
if the matter is examined, that the claas ia
a very small one which, has demanded any
thing more then tbe emancipation of the
slaves of rebels. The great object gained
by this message, is, that , ths President is
fairly ranged upon the side of freedom and
against slavery.' For the first time in two
generations the Government of the. United
Slates officially declare that slavery is aa
evil, and 'the cause of rebeliont' and dis
eorde, and in thus breaking away from ths
rulo of conduct which, has nearly destroyed
our country, President JJbcoIu has endear
ed himself to every true lover of his coun
try, snd given the American nation a step
forward that will never be retraced. Hence
forth our Government is upon tbs side of
freedom and slavery uS -ultimately ejo
out with' tbe war. Clemtltmd Leader, n
