ENDING OCT. 29, 1862. The Rebellion--Peace and Settlement.
We hear the question often asked how
the present difficulty between the North
and South is to be settled, and will the
people ever live together again in har
mony? The solution is easy.
Under a mistaken view of their rights
and f. their welfare, the South have re-
belied against the Government of the
United States. That Government, true I
to its obligations under the Constitution, I
has sought to suppress ihe rebellion and
restore the Unwn Government in each of
insurgent States. The end will be
accomplished whenevei the agents and
abettors of rebellion '" ceace to struggle,
or when the" insurgents shall be repress
ed by superior, power on the side of
Government. That will be manifest by ,
the. opening of the ports and the custom
houses, -the opening of . post offices and
tho unobstructed passage of the mail, the
opening of courts and the unresisted
. cr;j . ; C process. While the struggle
Lvu-, ami the people are in arms to main
tain . the. Government, tiaoy are prone to
tliiuk of punish meat, both to avenge the
past and protect the future. But this
will not bo the feeling of the whole peo
ple, at least not the persistent feeling.
When they find that resistance has ceas
ed they will welcome the return of peace,
ted an act of. genfTaLamneity on the
-p it . ..i.n4A A tV '
nart of the victors, extended to their
submissive and returning brethem," will
not only meet with consent, but with
approbation. ' Every man. will turn to
his i14 pursuit, trade ,and intercourse
will be revived, nd lhat will be the res
toration of Union which the people or
dained, V to establish justice, insure' do
mestic" tranquility, promote the general
wclfaj-o, an.d secure the blessings of Jib.
Some wilt bo .looking for guarantees
and compromises", but none will be need
ed. "The Constitution is sufficient for
every purpose, and the very object of tho
power is to manitain public order,. and to
protect the individual enjoyment of every
jrivato right, both in person and in
property, accouing to established law.
But what about slavery? Is that to
continue? some one will ask. And we
will ask in turn how can it be otherwise?
The laws of property in each State are
aader the cxcTusive control of the States
themselves. Congres cannot make laws
for the States,, find It has n power to
make laws affecting property, or persons
within the States; none over the law of
husband and wife, parent and child,
master and servant; none over the ma
king of deeds, or in any way affecting
the traasmififiiaa f property. - So that
slavery must continue in such States as
choose to maintain it until they see fit
to give it up as unprofitable, as they cer
tainly will in time, and certainly all the
sooner, if they are not driven to defend it,
by attacks upon it, made by persons from
When the rebellion began the insur
gent States and the loyal States both
made the mistake of underrating the
power and prowess of the other. They
will both, come out of the contest with
better knowledge of each other, and im-'
proved in- wisdom. They will both have
had convincing proof of its destructive
nature to' both. And if they shall both
have occasion soon, as perhaps they will,
to unite their arms against a foreign foe,
every doubt of fidelity will be dispelled
by the eeal and courage exhibited in a
common cause. -
Such is the end we hope for, and not
only hope for, but clearly see in the dis
tance. But meantime the war must go
on, and go on vigorously, for peace and
Union can only be had by the prevailing
force of arms.
Hard Masters,-The Next Step.
" 0 hard is my fate, once I freedom enjoyed.
Me. IIokack Greely, of the New
York Tribune, who maintains the right
of a State to eoeedc, the Rev. Ilenry
Ward Beecher, who says the Constitu
tion - of the United States was made
wrong, and Mr. Wendell Phillips, who
boasts of having been a Disunionist for
fifteen years, treat Mr. President Lin
coln as an old time schoolmaster would
treat a sluggish boy who had been slow
at his lesson and had his cars cuffed.
They have driven him into the emanci
pation dodge, but that does not satisfy
them ; he must get rid of his Generals.
The Reverend Ilenry says that the proc
lamation is nothing of itself, and that
the President is still surrounded with
pro-slavery men who will thwart it. And
Disunion Wendell says that Ilallcck,
McClellan and Bucll must be cast off,
and Hunter, Sigel and Fremont must
head our armies. ' The President has not
yet complied with the order, but ever

Cox and his competitor voted together,
while Mr. Shellabarger yielded (we have
no doubt reluctantly,) to the " pressure"

The Contraband Elephant.
Another church has been seized by
the government at Washington ; - this
time as a hospital for sick contrabands.
There is something in this fact that
ought to get the people of the North to
thinking. Wherever our armies have
penetrated the southern ' territory they
have been burdened with the care of
swarms of run-away negroes. This is
the case at Washington, Fortress Mon
roe, Norfolk, Newborn, along the cost of
North Carolina, at Port Royal, on the
Florida coast, Tcnsaeola, at New Orleans,
and in every section of the Southwest
where "our armies have taken up their
quarters. The number in the aggregate
must be enormous, and if the cost of
supporting these poor people were known
it would create no little commotion
throughout the country. So far, how
ever, some use has been made of these
negroes. They have been used in vari
ous menial occupations about the camps,
but there are a dozen who want work to
one who can secure it, and as a conse
quence they are beginning to swarm over
the borders into Ohio, Indiana and Illi
nois. In the hitter State the nuisance
has become so great that the government
gives no more passes for negroes to go
A new campaign is, however, now
opening. Our armies are advancing
southward and a different policy is here
after to prevail. The slaves are to be
freed by the authority of the govern
ment, and as a matter of course cared for
by their deliverers. The question comes
up, "what shall we do with them?"
Even now the care of contrabands is a
heavy drain upon the resources of the
country, but what will we do with fifty
times the number now depending upon
us after our armies acquire possession of
the Southwestern Suites, as they soon
will do? Where is the food to come
from to feed them, or the money to care
for their necessities? It is not at all im
probable that by next spring the govern
ment will have a million of negroes to
care for. Their labor under government
supervision is, as the Port Royal experi
ment proved, a losing operation the
North does not want them, and it will
be years before their labor can be made
availablo at the South as hired field
Among the multitude of serious diffi
culties raised by this war there is none
so appalling as the future relations of
the freed negroes with the Government

Pigs, Puppies and Proclamation. A Voice from East Tennessee---Are We Recognized
by the Government!
[Correspondence Cincinnati Commercial.]
Eds. Com : On the 5lh day of February
last, I received written authority from the
Secretary of War, to raise a regiment ofloy
ul East Tennesseeans, and on the Gib, I was
mustered into the TTuited Stated service, as
Colonel of the 3d Rogimcnt of East Tennes
see Volunteers, U. S. A. I repaired to the
vicinity of Cumberland Ford, where Gen.
Carter was then holding the rebels at bay,
at Cumberland Gap, with the little army,
which, after being reinforced, became known
as the 7th Division of the Army of the Ohio.
I organized my regiment, near this place, in
probably a shorter period of time than any
other regiment in the service has been recruited
and organized. In less tlian twenty
days horn the date of my authority, I had
8C3 men in the field, doing duty. They have
been on active duty ever since, having, siuce
the completion of the marched over fifteen
hundred miles, to say nothing of skirmishes
and fights in which they have participated.
As to their conduct, in contest with the ene
my, I leave others to speak Major General
Nelson aud Brigadier General Morgan having
both issued general orders in commendation
of their gallantry in the field, and courage in
battle. What has been said of my regiment
may, with propriety, be said of Gen. Spears'
entire Brigade the 3d, 4th, 5th and Gth East
They have undergone hardships that neith
er pen nor pencil can portray. They emphat
ically did the work, which resulted in the
Capture of Cumberland Gap, aud for three
days subsisted on birch and slippery elm bark.
Whenever, and wherever, a march was to be
made, Spears' drigade was called into service.
Many a poor fellow, who entered the service
hearty and hale, through the fatiguing march
es and exposures of camp life, has parted
with health and a good constitution, and, in
many instances life itself. All this in defense
what they had been taught to regard as a
pood, nay, the best, government in the world.
After nine mouths' euch service as this, and
never having received one cent of pay, and
but on suit of clothes, which are now in rags
upon the men's backs, along comes the Pay
master, and with him a mustering officer. For
what ? Why, these poor, deluded East Ten
nesseeans, have never been in Hie tervicethey
must be mustered into service, before they
can be paid. Well, what about those who
have died those who have been killed, and
those who- have wrecked their coiatilulioHx
aud destroyed their heuUli while performing
duty, as they supposed, in the service of the
Government 1 The roply is, I can only mas
ter is such as are perncnl and nhle for duly
Oh justice, whither has thon fled I Those
most' deserving are least rewarded! The
dead are deprived of their rights I
Those who. in performing the severest duty
behaTf t, the Government have lust their
time, and the very means of making a sup
port, are thus at one dash deprived of their
doubly hard earnings,, simply because some
gentleman of red tape persuasion was not
present to pronounce them in the service ac
cording to the ceremonies of that profession.
And this, too, when every Colonel of this
brigade was expressly authorized by the Se
irctary of War t preform the duties of mus
tering of hk regiment, and i& muster Oit men as
Tn view of what has bceo said, t will be
seen there is some force in the qneslion I pro
pound : " Arc we recognized by the Govern
ment?"' If we are not, after performing the
services all will acknowledge we have, it is
useless to expect to gain the favor of Uncle
Sara's agents by any effort iu our power.
There is a complaint, deep and wise, among
the Tennessceans, in regard to the treatment
they have received at the hands of tho Gov
ernment. I speask that which I know in re
gard to my own regiment, and I have been
informed the other East Tennessee regiments
have been served likewise, thouph scarcely
so bad. It has been the case all the time,
that my regiment never got any snppliea, un
less there was enough to supply all others and
Tho difference between mine and the other
East Tennessee regiments, is this, they come
in just before me, leaving mine to pick up
the crumbs t, e, to take what others leave.
This is pretty straight talk, but it is true as
the Gospel of God. One other word to this
connection : I do not believe the evil of
which I complain is chargeable to our com
manding officers, but to our disbursing of
ficers. The East Tennesseeans have another rea
son, as they conceive, to complain. They
have spmt ene winter in the mountains.
Their exposures have been very great, but as
long as permitted to remain on the line of
operations, that, if successful would lead
them home, they were satisfied to undergo
hardships of any character. While in Ken
tucky they could occasionally communicate
with home, and friends there, and many of
them being poor men, their families depend
ing on their labors for a support, it is emi
nently necessary that they should be where
they can have communication with them. '
They have also had promises from the Gov
ernment of the most flattering character in
regard to being permitted to return home,
and aid in the redemption of their friends
there. This is so, or those who stand high
in authority have misrepresented the authori
ties at Washington.
But, in the face of all this, an order came
assigning us to the Kanawha Valley. Away
from all hope of home, where all communi
cation is cut off with our friends, and where
we have to spend another winter amid scow
and ioc, and mountain blasts and hosts.
This would be met with reater allowance,
in all probability, had not the East Tennes
seeans been taught to believe they were pe
culiar favorites with the Abrahamie Family.
and would be treated by that Tribe as pure
patriots, if not sound statesmen ! We do
not complain of doing any thing in the bounds
of reason, but we do think that, after what
we have undergone, and in view of the prom
ises that have been made, and the courtesies
that are being extended to other troops, lliat
we ought to be sent back, either through
Kentucky or by way of Nashville.
There is yet another reason why many of
the East Tennesseeans are dissatisfied. Presi
dent Lincoln has assumed to issue a procla
mation, which, if ever carried out, must ne
cessarily rob hundreds of them of thousands
of dollars. In rny regiment alone, it destroys
over two hundred thousands dollars' worth
of property, depriving the owner of the use
of the same while he is fighting for the very
Government Mr. Lincoln professes to admin
hope, Messrs. Editors, you will give this
communication a place in yonr paper. These
are my seutiments, and I am alone responsi
ble for them, ami, I don't wish to be misun
derstood. I am for the Government rhjiit or
wnoxo. I am for it, if those who adminis
ter it, declare in a proclamation tliat we shall
not raise Tigs, nor own FurriES which I be
lieve would be just as constitutional as tho
President's Emancipation Proclamation.
With the full expectation that some Aboli
tionist will call me Traitoh, I remain your

Letter from an Officer in Twenty-Sixth Ohio.
Camp nie hh.es South op Crab Orchard 1
Oct. 17, ISOi f
Tins the seventeenth day since we left
Louisville, during which time we have been
marching every day, except one, (and then
in line of battle) forming line of battle every
other day, without tents or baggage except a
carpet bag toting our one or two days ra
tions, and sleeping on the ground, sometimes
in the rain, with only a single blutiket and an
oil cloth sometimes when the wagons did
not come up, only the oil cloth. Except
once to change at Bardstown. I have not
had off my clothes, and hardly my shoes, since
I left our people at Louisville. From this
brief statement, you will get the idea, that
we have been having a pretty rough time of
it, and yet we have enjoyed excellent health,
farbetter through the whole command, thau
when lying quiet iu camp, and are lar from
being as uncomfortable, as you would sup
pose. AVe have plenty to eat and drink and
our progress has been so much obstructed by
the enemy that we have had very few long
and fatiguing marches, just enough generally
to make us sleep well at night without much
bedding. The only uncomfortable night's reet,
I have had was one day when we had only
marched about 2 miles and had an oyster sup
per at night. I was not tired enough to sleep
sound, and the roughness of the ground kept
me awake. The only thing we felt much,
was the night, marching occasionally. We
were at it, one night till 2 o'clock.
We have now chased Bragg and his army
iuto the mountainous country extending to
Cumberland Gap and it is said to be impossi
ble to follow him further, at least until ar
rangements for torage and other supplies are
made. The country irom here, onward, a
poor, sterilo and unimproved one at best, has
been twice stripped within a month by the
great armies first bj Gen. Morgan (Geo. W.)
and now by Bragg, and affords no supplies
for ours ; and if further advance is mado in
this direction, they must first be secured. I
think it doubtful whether any further opera
tion bill be putsued in this quarter beyond
leaving a force in the neighborhood sufficient
to prevent Bragg's return into Kentucky,
while the rest of the army strikes in some
other direction, affording better communica
tion. Communications on the line, or opera
tions, of any kind, will be almost impossible
in a month more, owing to the breaking up of
(lie roads none of the best even now. So
whatever may be the plan of future opera
tions, it seems as if there must be-a puse-in
them for the present. Two Divisions (Smith's
and Taa Cleve's) of our Army Corps, (Crit
tenden's) have gone on a few miles to near
Mount Vernon the county seat of Rockcas
tle; while ours after marching 2 or 3 miles in
the same direction yesterday morning," fell
back in the evening to this place, where we
now lie, and will lie, during the lag at least.
We are accordingly " improving the occasion"
to wash our shirts aud write some letters, for
both of which the opportunities have been
very limited since we left Louisville".

7 MILES FROM MotJST
I wrote you day before yesterday. Since
then we have moved 12 miles further forward,
and the Divison is now encamped in a nar
row valley between the hills of this almost
mountainous region, with the Division of
Gen. Smith ahead of us, and that of Gen.
Tan Cleve, (formerly Crittenden's) in our
rear. We came up without any wagons and
without any baggage, except what we carri
ed, and are now about cut of rations, which
have howevor been seat for, and will soon
be up, men were also sent back last evening,
to Lebanon, Ky., for the baggage, tc, out of
our triin left, ai Louisville.
What the proposed plan of operations is, I
do not know, but I hardly tlunk they will
attempt a fall and winter campaign in these
mountains. The county affords no supplies
and they must all be brought forage and
everything, over the roads, which in a month
more must become nearly impassible. I still
think, as I wrote before, that a force will be
left here, sufficient to prevent the enemy's re
entering Kentucky while the maiu body of
the army will go somewhere else.
