Three Democratic tolua were given for the bill.
Two of thene votes were from New York, and
the other from Rhode Island. The New York
members were at Manaaoas and Centrcvillo im

the rebels. They law (luring that visit enough
of the institution and its consequences to effect

slavery from the significant teachings of the
I need scarcely say to you that the Republi
can members feel proud of the small job of
emancipation which has just passed so success
fully through their hands.
The principal bill now before the Senate is
the confiscation bill. It would soon assume a
satisfactory shape, If it were not for the ever
lasting negro interest. This is the point on
which there will be most debate.
To touch the netrro of a rebel, even if said
rebel is in the field, to some weak men among
the Republicans is a sore temptation. It mat
ters not what i done with the real estato and
the other goods and chatties, but the moment
the proposed law squints toward the negro, all

those who sent him here, to be a sound Repub

The tax bill, as it passed the House will go
through the Senate with but little alteration.
By the time the first of Juno comes, there will
be a deficiency in our Inst year's expenses of
thirty millions of dollars. Five hundred mil
lions were appropriated to defray the current
expenses of the fiscal year. But that sum proves
to be thirty millions too small. Just think of
that, ye tax payers, and then scream, "hurrah
for McClellan, who has had control of nearly
half your army for the last nine months, and
has done nothing with it but capture an empty
The old war cry, "all is quiet on the Potomac,"
has passed away, and a new one is about to be
adopted. "All is quiet at yorktown," will bo
the next one. The rebels will not let this one
be sung as long as the Inst one was, if we can
place any dependence in what they say. They
claim that they are getting our troops into just
the place where they want to have them, but
thoy have played bluff so often that it seems as
if no one can be fooled by their statements any
more, yet we see the McClellan nanors are nt
work building up fortifications and multiplying
uicuuciuy usi un inej uia at ienircvtlte.
From this wo may infer that all will be quiet
at Yorktown for quite a time.
Thissame game of biuff was well played in
the West, where Buell. with his sixtw thousand
men, was held in check fourmonthsby fourteen
thousand rebels. I do believe that none but a
man educated at West Point could be so de
ceived. Another West Point scholar wanted
two hundred thousand men to keep the rebels in
Kentucky from taking that State. They must

be in some of the Northern eitios. The rebels
have good cause to think highly of him.

Since then that whole plan has been counter

I lie Department ol me Kannahannock which
was placed under Gen. McDowell, has been re
constructed, and Gen. McDowell sent elsewhere.
Gen. Itanks instead of keeping to the valley of
the Shanandoah, is winding his way through
the recent Department of Gen. McDowell, and
heading his army towards tho Rappahannock
River, just as if he were going to take a position
between this city and the rebels, so as to be
ready in case they should make any sudden
move in the direction of Washington.
The effort of Vallandigham to galvanize life
into the defunct Breckinridire Dartv seems to
have subsided; or if any thing is done in that
direction, it is done very quietly.
The Pacific Railroad bill is attracting con
sidcrable attention in the House, and will pro
bably become a law. Something must lie done
for the West, for the most of ourarmy who pass
through here declare their determination to come
back and settle here when peace is established.
This, I learn, is greatly the case all through the
Border States; hence, the prospect is, that emi
gration will be South instead of West, unless
the Railroad bill goes into effect to counteract
the rush or our soldiers to the South in search
of new homes. . . . ...
- Tha Committee on the conduct of tha War,
will have their report on the barbarity of the
rebels to our wounded and dead, in the hands
the printer before the week is out. When it is
published, the world will see what demons Sla
very can make of men who pretend to have been
under tho influence of the Gospel and civiliza
tion. The man nr woman who can read it and
not curse the authors and abettors of this rebel
lion, both ia their State and out of it, will show
that they have but small hearts and no curse at
all in them.
Strong fears are entertained by many very in

by the name of Lucas, a former Postmaster

trict, came by authority, and stated that he was
authorized to say, should the Emancipation bill

troops in the field would throw down theirarms.
In other words, the United States must not do

A War Incident.
The Washington correspondent of the
Independent rotates tho following touching
A few dsys ago, a New York soldier, an
officer in our volunteer army, camo into
Washington with the dead body of a com
rade, who had just expired in ono of our
regimental hospitals across the Potomac.
The dead soldier was a young man and
the only son of a widow. I have not al
luded to tho case on this account, for many
widows have given up their only song for
this war; but to mention an affecting inci
dent connected with it. Tho officer who
had tho body in charge seemed lo bo deep
ly affected ; in fact was so overcome
by bis sorrow, that a few strangers
gathered round him at the railway ter
mininus to ask the story of his comrade,
now sleeping in death. "It is no new
story," said he, "that I have to toll you.
He was tho only boy of a widowed mother,
and the favorite of his regiment. Every
body loved him they couldn't help it;
and among his townsmen who knew him
and his mother there was scarcely one who
would not have risked his own life for sake
of tho widow and her boy. When he was
first taken sick, ho bad a great aversion to
taking medicine; but as he grew suddenly
very ill, tho stirgoon, who was kind and at
tentive, promised him, if he would take the
medicine proplly, ho would obtain a fur
lough for him, so that tho moment he was
ablo to travel, he should go homo, to bo
cared for by bis mother. Very scion there
after the soldier became wildly dolirious,
in which state he continued to the last; but
ho never for a moment forgot tho promise.
He did not know one of his friends, but no
matter how violent he was, tho moment
the surgeon offered him medicine, ho bo
came as gentle as a woman, bonding eager
ly torwaru lo take it. liven when he was
dying, and tho surgeon wished to relieve
him of bis agony by opiates, ho took them
with a contented smile upon his face ! To
the very last it was evident that the idea
of going homo and of obtaining tho fur
lough through good conduct in taking
medicine, never Ictt him. ' llo has return
ed lo his home, and the sods of his nativo
valley cover him, and tho widow's cottage
The Charge of Cowardice.
The Columbus Journal of tho l7lb, has
tho following in regard to the chargo of
cowardice against certain Ohio Regiments:
We were favored last evening with a con
versation with Lieut. L. Starling Sullivant,
of this city, who has just returned from the
battle bold at rittsburg Landing. Lieut.
Sullivant has been connected with tho Ord
nance Department of the U. S. Army for
some time past, and was stationad at Pa
ducah. He went up the Tennessee river in
the discharge of his duties, nod arrived at
Pittsburg Landing during the battlo. He
says tho fight was a most terriblo ono, aud
that our loss was very heavy.
The report of the cowardice of several
Ohio regiments, started by the correspond
ent of the Chicago Tribune, and which was
made up by that individual no nearer the
battlo-fiuld than Cairo, he says, is a most
unfounded falsehood. The throwing away
of arms, and general panic, ho puts in the
samo category. The 53d, 56th and 77th
Regiments did fall back hastily, along
with the troops from other states, including
some from Illinois; but it was when thoy
were outflanked and almost surrounded,
neither did thoy throw away thoir arms.
The same "panic" which caused tho Obio
Regiments to "fleo in disorder, caused
some of the gallant friends of tho Chicago
lnbvnes correspondent lo leave in an
equally hasty manner. His report of tho
battle was not written even as near tho scene
of battle as the "reliable correspondent" of
the London Times wrote his description of
the battle of Bull Run, and is equally worthy
of belief. So much for that attempt to
disparage tho bravery and patriotism of our
gallant Ohio boys.
We nave nothing to say against tho val
or of the Illinois troops or any others they
are heroes, and wo believe they did their
whole duty during tho fearful carnage; but
the lists of the killed and wounded of tho
Ohio Regiments show that they suffered
equally with those from any other State.
All honor to the glorious dead and gallant
Importance of Huntsville.
Some fears have been expressed that
Gen. Mitchell may not be ablo to bold
Huntsville and that the overpowering rebel
forces may be thrown upon him before he
can be reinforced. Those who best know
the sound judgment, sleepless vigilance, and
untiring energyof Gen. Mitchell, entertain
the fullest confidence in tho wisdom of his
sudden movement on Hunlsvillo, and bis
ability to meet any emergency. The Bal
timore American thus speaks of tha impor
tance of the acquisition :
Huntsville, the metropolis of North Ala
bama and the residence of much of the
wealth of that section of the South, is a
very important acquisition to tho National
troops, as it cuts in two at another point, the
Memphis and Charleston railroad, and is
the seat of a largo cotton trade. It was
one of those places that came into the re
bellion very reluctantly, some of the most
prominent and determined Union men hailing
from there. Its capture settles tho fate
of all Middle Tennessee directly north of
it, and insures easy communication with
Columbia, the old residence of President
Polk, now held by the Ueion forces. "
"By telegraph dispatch, it will be seen
that Gen. Mitcholl has taken Stevens' Junc
tion and Decatur, and now holds possession
of 100 miles of the Memphis aud Charlcs
tou Railroad. Cinctauaci Gazette.
Increase of Free Blacks.
A correspondent of the Evening Post
speaking of the increaso of free blacks in

for the last forty years, and more especially
in the last twenty, slave men have Bought

Air, Sunshine and Health.
A New York merchant noticed, in the
progress of years, that each successive book
keeper gradually lost his health, and finally
died of consumption, however vigorous and
robust ho was on entering his service. At
length it occurrod to him that tho little
rear room where the books were kept
opened in a back yard, and was so surround
ed by high walls tbat no sunshine came
into it from ono year's end to another. An
tipper room, well lighted, was immediately
prepared, and his clerks had uniform good
health ever after. A familiar caso to gen
oral rcadors is derived from medical works
where an cntiro English family became ill,
and all remedies seemed to fail of their us
ual results, when accidentally, a window
glass of the family room wasbrokon in cold
weather. It was not repaired, and forth
with there was a marked improvement in
the health of tho inmates. The physician
at one traced tho connection, discontinued
his medicines, and ordered thnt the window
pane should not be replnccd.
A French lady became ill. Tho most
eminent physicians of her time woro called
in, but failed to restore her. At Icre-th
Dupeytren, the Napoleon of physic, was
consulted. He noticed thnt she lived in a
dim room, into which tho sun never shono;
the liOUSO being situated in one of tho nar
row streets, or rather ianes of Paris, Ho
at once ordorcd more airy or chocrful
apartments, and all her complaints vanish
ed. Tho lungs of a dogbecomo tuborcula-
ted (consumptive) in a few weeks, if kept
confined in a dark cellcr. The most com
mon plant grows spindly, piilo and scrag
gling, if no sunlight falls upon it. Tbo
gratost medical names in France, of tho
last century regarded sunshine and pure air
as equal agents in restoring and maintain
ing health. 1 rom these facts, which can
not be disputed, tbo most common mind
should conclude that cellars, and rooms on
tho northern sido of buildings, or apart
monts into which tho tun docs not immedi
ately shine, should never bo occupied as
family rooms or chambers, or as lihrnrios
or studies. Such apartmei.ts are only fit
lor sto'agp, or purposes which never require
persons to remain in them over a few min
utes at a limo. And every intelligent and
humane, parent will arrange thnt the fam
ily room and tho chambers shall bo the
most commodious, lightest and bright
apartments in bis dwelling.
The Politics of Gen. Sigel.
We bavo been under the impression
that Gcu. Sigol, bad formerly been a Dem
ocrat, and have hitherto spoken of him un
der that impression. In his caso wo have
acted just as wo have in reference to all our
commanding officers, we have not been in-
tliienced in our utterances, with reference
to them, ono way or tho other, by the fact
of their having boon Republicans or Demo
crats. Hut in the caso of Gen. Sigol, it
would soem by tho following which wo clip
from toe JNow iotk Tribune of Saturday,
that his politics bad been mistaken:
A correspondent assuros us that we have
done Gon. Sigol injustice in assigning him
to tho Democratic party. He calls himself
a Republican, and has always acted with
tho Uobublican party, being too good and
consistent n Democrnl to have anything to
do with those who only call themselves by
a name, tuo principles or which they don t
understand, or don't believe in. Of course,
knowing this now, wo honor him all the
moro as a man, hut not a whit more as. a
brave soldier. Wo never inquired, and we
never cared for his politics, appreciating
and thankful for his military skill, his ex
traordinary bravory, and his unswerving
fidelity to his adopted country.
The Rebel Generals have had a bard time
of it during tho war. Garnott was killed
at Carrick's Ford ; Burton and Bee wero
killed at Manassas; Zollicoffar was killed
at Fishing Creek; McCulloch, Mcintosh
and black were killod at Pea Kidge; A.
Sidney Johnson was killed at Pittsburg
Landing; P. St. George Cook killed him
solf at Richmond ; Tighlman was captured
at Fort Henry ; Buckner was captured at
fort Lionelson; Hustirod Johnson was cap
tured with Buckner, and violating his pa
role, escaped, and is now renorte killed at
Pittsburg Landing; Mnckall, Gnntt and
Walker wero taken at Island 10; Floyd
and Pilllow are suspended in disgrace, for
running away from Fort Donelson; Twiggs,
Knunlleroy, Jackson and Bonham resigned:
Cannon at Columbus.
Columbus, Ky.f has been left in a de
fenceless condition since tho rebels ran away
from it bag and baggage, but is to be so
no longer. Sixty cannon are being mount
ed there by direction of uen. Strong, and
in a tiiori tune it win no as lormiuublo a

"An Absurd Plan."
So says the Now York Leader, and o
say other conservative Democrat journals
which are fearful that the Corning-Vallandigham
Conference a Washington will lead
to a reconstruction of tho Democratic party
as it existed previous to tbo Charleston
Convention. That is what the people be
lieve. The conclusion is unavoidable, for
the cloven foot appeared in tbo resolution
and in tba presence of the notorious Vall
andigham, With what prcntctico lo truth
can the Atlas & Argus, and its followers,
affirm that tho purpose of this meeting was
other than tho organization of a party on
tho old basis Slavery being the chief cor
nerstone? "Oh, no," say tho conspiators; "oh, no;
it is not politic to draw party lines. We
want a great Union-saving, Conservative,
National, Democoalic party. That is what
wo wish to organize."
"But what about Vallandigham f What
about tho cloven foot f"
"Oh, that is a Republican lie. We want
no party lines. Wo are for a groatNation
nl, Union, Democratic party."
"Is Vallandigham to load ll! What
about that and the resolutions in substance
declaring for tho perpetuity of tho institution
"Iuat is a Republican lie. We want to
form a groat National Union Democratic
party" and so the conspirators go on, ans
wering tho Leader and their hesitating
Democratic friends who are not willing to
bo sold, with sky-rondering clamor about
tho Union and conservatism. 1 heirs is
the weakest of all weak dovices. Tbcy
seem to bo blinded in thoir eagerness to re
construct a party and do not appear to know
that the cloven foot is in sight below the
rags of their beggarly covering. Very
strange notions they entertain of conserva
tism, these patriots as any ono may see
who will run through tho files of the Atlas
fc Argus for a year past.
It is impossible to restore the Democratic
party to power upon a platform disconnect
ed from Slavery. Tho party relics upon its
devotion to Slavery for all its success in the
future, for it is very well known that suc
cess depends on its nbility to rally tho ex
tremists in the South to its aid, with tho
help of Vallandigham, on a pro-Slavery
platform. It has already been declared to
them, through Vallandigham, who is an ex
treme pro-Slavery man, that if they will
join forces with tho conspintors, nil projects
tor emancipation shall be opposed, and that
not even tho plan suggested by the Presi
dent shall be entertained. Tho Union men
in the South who may think well of tho
project for tho emancipation of slaves by
tho Slates in which Slavery exists are to be
put down by this Great National, Conser
vative, Union, Democratic parly, and Sla
very established forever. Is not this what

The Reconstruction of the Military Departments.
Tho order of Secretary Stanton, still fur
ther narrowing tha jurisdiction and auth
ority of Gon. McClellan, and giving, in of
fect, tho chief command to Gen. McDowell,
in the ndvnnco to Richmond, surprised no
ono here who had any familiarity with the
causes rendering that result inevitable. It
is a great event, and will tell powerfully
upon our military future. Tho army of tho
i otomac now becomes three separare ar
mies, or columns, each looking Richmond-
ward. One, under McClellan, comprises
the corps of Keyos and Iloiutzelman, and
its sphere of oporalions is definitely pointed
out in tho Secretary's order, designating the
limits of the now military departments.
The'second, under McDowell, embraces tho
corps of that General and of General Sum-
er, (nine divisions, McClellan having but
eight,) with territorial limits including tho
District of Columbia, part of tho wostern
bank of tho Potomac, (from Harper's Ferry
to Acqtiia creek.) and tho entire eastern
bank of that river, from the same starting
point io mo iuesapcake uay. a do De
partment of Gen. Banks include the Valley
of Virginia, and his command the corps pre
viously under him.
. It will thus be seen that McClellan has
now but two of tho five corps lately com
prising his command, and considerably less
than half of the great army which he has'
left here in idleness for tho last six months,
at an expense of nearly or quite two millions
a day. His field of active works is still
more inconsiderable, boing merely tho little
triangle, of which one angle is at Richmond,
and of which the three sides are, the fred
ericksbiirgh and Richmond railroad, the
James river, from its mouth to tho bogus
rebel capital, and tho eastward limit of tho
Potomac .and the seaboard. He has no
longer a place at Washington, or any con
trol over the destinies of the national Capi
tal, so long blockaded by bis permission.
Tho revolution of affairs, ia this particular,
by an Administration whose patience he
has exhausted by a long serieg of broken
promises and frivolous excuses, is thus com
plete. All the people, will say amen.
x obktown. i orkiown is situated on
tho right bank of tho York river, seventy
milos from Richmond. It is an old town,
settled in 1705, and now has about fifty
bouses. It was tho theater of one of the
most important events in American history
the surrender of Lord Cornwallis to Gon-
eral Washington, which oecured on tba 19tb
of October, 1781. ' The rebels aro reported
to have erected strong fortifications along
the river banks; the works at Gloucester
Point, opposite Yorktown, are represented
particularly to be very formidable.

If slavery is the blessing that its .friends

If our pooplo wero unanimous for it we
