Bloodthirsty Politicians vs. Humane Generals.
The blood of tti3 war u oa the ekirts
f the politicians.
They have csred cot what roots of bit
terness they planted, what evil passions
they excited provided they gained the
victory and carried off the spoils.
Their practical motto has been let the
North, the South, tho East and the West
hate and destroy each other and let bo
ciety punish but lot us have place and
Such, had bcn the oourse of polities
until our best men were driven to pri
vate life, and unblushing corruption reign
ed from the National Congress down to
the county leeches corruption and incom
petence the rule ; ability ' and integrity
At elfishnes3 is tho central vice of our
nature around which all others cluster)
and from which all others ppring, when
uoh unbridled selfishness stalks unblush
ing in all our public places (looking as
kance for) plunder, weshould expect to
ec bribery, emberzlemsct, falsehood and
ruelty ia her train.
Ilence whea we all knew that Wash
ington had become th very ccsa-pool of
selfishness and corruption we ought not
to hare been so astounded and etruek
dumb at the discovery that there, politici
ans assembled in sightly conclave with
demoniac cruelty to devise schemes or
frame telegraphic lies to precipitate this
unsuspecting country from the profound
est peace and unexampled prosperity in
to all the horrors of intcrneciea war.
We ought not to hare been surprised to
see another class as if in secret conspira
tj with them, giving plausibility to these
lies and adding fuel to the flames : and
still a third timidly considering whether
it "were not best to divide their country,
as they had before divided the spoils
each taking a fragment for his future
field of plunder.
And we ought not to have been sur
prised to see the politicians of each side
struggling unitedly to prevent all honor
able compromise, and crying,
"Havoc!" auilet slip ths dogs of wir!
And we ought not now io be surpris
ed to find them raising an. universal
clamor against JlcClellan, whose great
heart so yearns toward his noble army
that he would rather lose the plaudits
that always greet him who comes up vic
' torious from a sea of blood and suffer
the abuse of these cruel politicians, than
unnecessarily sacrifice such gallant lives.
What a commentary on cur political
morals that our generils whose trade is
war and all whose thoughts are familiariz
d with blood must teach our politicians
What a pictars of political degener
acy whea we find our Generals, at the
Lead of their victorious armies, respect
ing law, protecting private property, and
disabusing the minds of our erring coun
trymen of the falsehoods imposed upon
' them by their politicians only to be de
nounced by our politicians, who, mean
time, are engaged in schemes to widen
the breach and render reconciliation im
possible and the war perpetual.
If things go on for twenty years to
come from bad to worse as they have for
twenty years past many men will be driv
en to.the conclusion that our lives, our
fortunes, and our nation's eacred honor
would beeafer in the hands of a humane,
law -respecting IlJleck or McClelian than
in the hands of these selfish, lawless, cor
rupt and cruel politicians.
Bloodthirsty Politicians vs. Humane Generals. Public Debt--Texas and Slavery.
In 1851, the State of Ohio had a debt
of sixteen millions, bearing interest at
fix per cent, a year, making an annual
charge of one million dollars which was
met chiefly by taxes. In the adoption
of a new Constitution, the people then
decided that this debt should be paid off
ty annual taxes beginuing with 100,000
dollars the first ysor, and increasing every
year with an amount eciual to the annual
interest just get rid of. While the
public state debt is still eixtccn millions
and the amount collected every year i.-;
more than one million two hundred thous
and Dollars the Rebellion TeU cf the
TJtti'od States comes upon us ulso. This
will cost the nation sixty millions annual
ly for interest, and indeed much more
than that. Ohio's portion of this iisty
million trill be one twelfth, if all the
Nation help alike to pay it say five
millions. Eut if the Southern people
be f teoped in poverty to the lips and un
able to psy taxes, Ohio will find that bar
share.-of the annual interest will rise to
six millions of Dollars in addition to'the
proper state expenses. So much ia ine
vitable. .With that prefect before us,
Mr. Lincoln proporcsto buy .'ill the slaves
cf the Scroth purchase a new country for
them not all tt once, but gradually
-say, z'j years wnicn will increase uie
national delt oue hundred million a year,
more. The interest of one hundred mil
lions is only six millions, and Ohio's
Iwelvth one bait' a million, and increas
ing unmiallv at that rate :. making in ten
years Cve millions a year more. What
Patriot would hesitate, to give all that
he hath to save the country from coming
to ruin and to save Mr. Chase, Mr. Sum
mer, Mr. Grecly and other tenderhearted
en fiom continued and afflicting grief
on a:c?unt of the negro. And then, what
an incitement it will give to the develope-
ment of energy v,hat industry it will
require to meet the taxes what employ
ment to our navy, and what a fine army
of guards and negro keepers wo can main
tain upon the Pampas of South Ameri
ca, riding wild horses with the Gauchos,
and throwing the bolero?
Mr. Senator Wade caught a tartar
in the Senate the other day. Senator
Cowan, of Pennsylvania a perfect gen
tleman and law-abiding Republican-happened
to irritate the " fighting" Senator
from Ohio, by talking Constitution in
stead cf " negro." Mr. Wade had to
retort with his usual indecency and in
solency. Then was Benjamin Frank
lin Wade " completely snubbed" by a
gentleman and a Senator. The little de

In the course of the debate Mr. Cowan

It might be said that he was dogmatic.

Mr. Cowan When the Senator settles

enough for me to pay attention to that
kind of remark, till then he must excuse
Mr. Wade spoke of Mr. Cowan as hav-1
ing a right to be a mere advocate and
watch-dog of traitors in the field but
should not come here to lecture the Sen
ate ; who ever heard of him? Though he
was willing to be criticized by somebody
having some authority, he would rather
be lectured by anybody than the Senator
Mr. Cowan said he might be very hum
ble in experience and unknown but was
here as a Representative of Pennsylva

people and was not going to apologize to
his people for his inexperience or his
youth. He never understood that are

The News this morning, while an
nouncing nothing cf groat importance,
will be read with interest. No news at
all is sometimes good new3 ; but the in
telligence generally looks favorably, and
brings with it nothing of disaeter.
From the West we have the announce
ment of a brilliant dash from Ft. Scott,
on the rebel camp of General Coffee,
which was completely surprised, all the
camp equipage destroyed, and 1,000 head
cf beef cattle, and 800 mules, brought in
among other Bpoils of war.
A very rigorous policy b,as been adopt
in Memphis, which makes the secession
ists groan ia spirit. Circulation of Con
federate notes is prohibited, and the
General Butler is following up his in
cisive proclamations by decisive action.
The Southern papers give accounts of
the arrest of a number of persons who
have violated their paroles, and the ex
ecution of others. From the same source
we have accounts of the capture of a
train of cars, on the railroad running
.m Alders to Erashearv a few miles
above I?w Orleans, on which several
Federal officers were taken prisoners.
It is reported that Fort Morgan has
surrendered, leaving the way to Mobile
clear to the Federal fleet, s:?d that a ter
rible battle was raging between land
forces near the city, the result of which
was not known. The reported capture
of Fort Morgan is positively contradic
ted by our Washington Special, on in
formation from the Navy Department.
The blockading fleets are on the look
out for a number of British steamers
known to be fitting out at Nassau with
valuable cargoes to run the blockade.
Ths most important recent capture is
the Gordon alias Nassau, a fine steamer
that has been of great service to the
Confederates, and which is now in New
York. The New York Transcript an
nounces the capture of six British steam
ers off Charleston, three of which were
sunk by the blockading fleet. The report
is considered doubtful, though it is known
that more than that number were recent

Tuesday Evening, June 3.
Trie following address was read to the army
this evening at dress parade, and received
with an outburst of vociferous cheering from
CAMP NEAR NEW BRIDGE, June 2.
Soldiers of the Army of ths Poicmac r
I have fulfilled at least a part of my promise
to you. You are now face to face with' the
rebels, who are held al bay in front of the cap
The final and decisive battle is al hand. Un
let yoa belie your past history, the result
cannot for a moment, be doubtful. If the
troops who labored so faithfully and fought
so gallantly at Torktown, and who so brave
ly won the hard fights at Williamsburg.
West Point, Hanover Court House and Fair
Oaks, now prove worthy of their antece
dent', the victory is surely ours.
The events of every day prove your supe
riority. Wherever you have met the enemy
you have beaten him. Wherever you have
used the bayonet he has given way in panic
I ask of you now one last crowning effort
The enemy has staked his all on the issue of
the coming battle. Let us meet him and crush
him here in the center of therebel!ion.
Soldiers ! I will be with you in this bat
tle, and share its dangers with you. Our con
fidence iri each other is now founded upon
the past. Let us strike a blow which ia to
restore peace and union to this distracted
Upon your valor, discipline, and mutual
confidence the result depends.

The Closing of the Schools for Contrabands at
Mit. Cdtler, the Superintendent of the poor
at Newborn, N. C, thus related in a speech
in New York, hia experience with-Gov. Stan
ley. The coloring given, to the transaction
relative to the closing of the schools, seems to
hive been unduly high :
" When the Governor arrived, as Superin
tendent of the poor, I called upon him, and
was received pleasantly and privately. He
asked all about my office, and then stated
there was one thing in it which he objected
to, and that was the keeping of schools for the
blacks; that the law of the Stato mako it a
criminal offence, and he was instructed to ad
minister the laws as before thi3 rebellion broke
out. These were his instructions from Wash
ington. He did not wish the schools closed
abruptly, and as a man and a Christian, he
might have perhaps done as I had.
" I had opened them by permission of Gen.
Foster, but of course when a superior officer
came, and told me I was doing wrong, I did
what any loyal ciu'zen should do in such times
as these ; I obeyed the intimation.
" Next day came the question of the rendi
tion of the slaves, and I had to see him about
tha't. I told him what I had done about the
school. He thanked me for it and told the
General he was much pleased with the way
in which I had done my duty."
Mysterious Movement the Enemy in Front of
Wasihsgtos, June 15. A dispatch from
Gen. McClellan's army says the movements
of the enemy to-day have been extensive
and as yet involved in mystery. Large bodi
es have been seen moving down from near
Mechanicsviile bridge and Richmond toward
the late battle field. Our pickets, yesterday,
were driven in from Old Churoh, showing
that the enemy intends making demonstra
tions in that direction.
A contraband reports that 3,000 cavalry
left Richmond on Wednesday going in the
direction of Fredricksbnrg; probably the same
force that was seen at Old Church.
The rebels opened this morning a sharp
artillery fire in front of Sumner's division,
lasting about 3 hours. We had one killed
and one wouuded.
The weather is sultry.
The Latest from North Carolina.
A correspondent of the New York Tribune,
writi-s from Gen. McClellan's camp, and iv-
g Gen. Bunuide'n views of the late North
Carolina excitement, pays :
In regard to the action of Gov. Stanley.'Gen.
B. is understood to give it his approval ; and
it would aeem that the public have been miss
led concerning it.
It would appear that so far from closing
the negro schools, he said only that in case
North Carolina returned to the Union with
the anti-school law in full force, he would feel
Called upon to enforce it, and clos the schools
of the kind in question
Gov. Stanley's remarks, Mr. Colyer closed the
schools him-elf. I understand that, these sub
stantially are the facts in the case.

Our Loss 1,000 in the Shields and Jackson
WisnixGTOs, June 14. An officer who was
in the battle of Port Republic, doing duty in
the advance of Gen. Shields' brigade, has just
arrived here. He says he received positive
orders not to burn the bridge over the She
nandoah. Our entire loss in the fight, in kill
ed, wounded and prisoners, did not exceed
1.000; ISGofourmen were killed, and 300
wounded. The regiments engaged in the fight
were the 7th Indiana, and 5th, 7th and 20ih
Ohio. Col. Buckley is missing.
John C. Heenan.
The salary which Heenan receives in En

is said to be 100 a week, which is exactly
the amount of the pay of the President of the
United States. Indeed so popular is he with
the people of England, that even the glory ot
his name has been sought in the person of his
younger broiher, at an offer of some thirty or
forty pounds a week, to spar for a rival trav

Gen'. McCi.ei.las-is thus spoken of by
rehc! prisoner (high in rank) in his army:
"It is universally conceded by our officers
that he has no equal in either army. They
have long and well known his military ability.
They knew it when he was in the L'nited
States army with them, and they fear him
more to-day than all your other generals.
He has from the commencement done just
what we hoped he would not do, and avoided
just what we desired him to do. One of the
most encouraging hopes was. at one time, the
probability that he would be superseded.
Our former Uniied States officers in the old
regular service consider General Scott to be
the greatest military genius of the age, but
that, his great age would have prevented him
from successfully carrying on the war. There
were many of them under General Scott in
the Mexican war, and t'. ey gr. a ly admire hi-
military ability, but they consider General
McClelian quite equal to General Scott in his
best days. We would willingly have any two
of our best generals retire from the field.
von can induce your politicians to say Gen.
McClelian on the shelf."

it is cheaper to-buy than to borrow.
The paper is not in the interest of any
party, nor is it meant to be identified with
anv party, because it will not be fettered. It
will have very distinct opinions on all public
questions conreeted with government, wheth
er Union, State or County; and in the ex
pression of opinions it will have but one guide
a strict adherence to law. It will support
The Constitution and The Laws without re
gard to platforms or to-party dogmas. Fideli
ty in office will, always, bt commended and
supported; peculation and abuse will.be steadi
ly opposed ; and economy in public affairs in
sisted on. The paper does not rely upon pre
fessions but upon practice, and ifs-course will
be best known by a reference to its future
columns. Such a reference will show that it
will not be the mere repeater of telegrams
from Washington, tinged by a spw.i.'il agent
to suit a'purpose; nor will it be found seek
ing to maintain itself by pepquisites drawn
from the County Treasury.

Its fresh lenves, it clear tyne, its entertaining rar!e
tv. its severe hut jnst criticisms upon the fullie of Iha

and its able correspondence, all combine u make it th
modei newspaper of the country, and one that every
family mustpnze. Its condensed weekly summary of

superior to that contained ia any other jom-uaH He
