NEWS OF THE WEEK
ENDING DEC, 31, 1862.
The purely Republican presses whose
business it is to echo the party exculpa
tion for the party faults at Washington,
have rejoiced in the avowal of General
Barnside that the failure aod plan of
battle at Fredericksburg were all his own.
' The General has indeed said so, but he
is quite too geneross; and this partial
adherence of the press to literal truth is
for the purpose of falsification. Amon?
other follies practiced at 'Washington
there is a committee of Congress which
assumes to scrutinize the conduct of the
. war and to- Eit in judgment upon it.
. They . go about taking testimony and
cross-examining commanders, and from
the testimony thus taken, it is shown that
Burnside had sent his plan to the com
manding General at Washington, and to
the President, which plainly shows their
meddling, and then it is shown that Ilal
leck and Meigs went to Burnside's camp
' and further sifted the movement; and
here was the fatal fault, for by some mis
understanding, the pontoons which Barn
side required, he expected them to send,
and they expected him to order from
somebody else. This made such delay
that the enemy increased their forces and
their protections. McClellan had been
removed for not moving under their or- j
deraj nd he had been reprehended for
going the York River rout to Richmond,
and there is no escaping the conclusion
that the plan of Burnside was the Wash
ington plan; and they were ready to cry,
we sent him, if the plan had succeeded,
and as ready to say, we did not interfere,
if he failed. ' "
But there is enough to make us doubt,
and more than donbt, the ability of the
General. lie had twice refused the chief
command, and told them that McClellan
was the only man capable of commanding
so large an army; but that might be
mere distrust of himself. - He tells us
bow he had induced the enemy to expect
him to cross twenty miles below, and in
eonsequence they gathered their force
there to meet him ; that he meant in fact
to cross at Fredericksburg, and did so.
He further tells as that it took his army
fifty hours to cross on the pontoon bridges,
and in that interval the enemy brought
up all their troops from below. Of course
they would, for they were only six hours
cff. The General ought to have known
how many men could march on his bridges
at once, and of course how long it would
take to pass them.
It is now eight weeks since McClellan
was removed! Surely it is time for the
Secretary of War to have it given out
that Burnside never intended to fight,
and that Burnside is a traitor.
Morgan has again entered Kentucky
in the rear of B-osecrans captured some
of our garrisons, and destroyed the Louis
ville & Nashville Railroad so as to cut
cff all communication. Unless the Cum
berland river shall rise soon, the army
. of Rosecrans will suffer for want of food.
The Cincinnati Gazette thinks it very
strange! We do not think so; indeed it
is just what might have been looked for.
We have already said in a former num
ber that there might be no worse result
to General Rosecrans than inaction.
The great news of the week telegraph
ed to the Cincinnati papers is that Mr.
Chase is expected " to lead to the hyme
neal altar" (that is the phrase for such
high matters) the widow of the late Sen
ator Douglas. And it is looked upon ae
as a great party achievement. She will
be known in history as Mrs. Chase No.
General Banks has reached New Or
leans and taken command of New Orleans
in place of General Butler, who is reliev
ed. This is a valuable change, for Gen
eral Butler is not suited either by tem
per, manners or judgment, for the high
and delicate trusts of that position.

ith this number of our paper we
close the year 1862. The year has been
one of great expectation; immense effort
with profuse expenditure, and there has
been none of the great success hoped for
not only hoped for but confidently pre
dicted. So strong was the public impa
tience under our former delays and fail
ures as they were reckoned, that on the
28t.fi of January the first of those ill-
judged measures dated "Executive Man
sion," directed that the army should all
move on the 22d of February. The an
nouncement was at once melancholy and
ridiculous; melancholy that the Presi
dent should attempt to usurp the direc
tion of the army movements, and ridicu
lous that he should attempt, without re
gard to seasons, to order the movements
to be made one month in advance. The
same clap-trap spirit led him and Mr.
Chase to go to Fortress Monroe and se
lect a landing place for the army. And
the spirit thus indulged in, led to that
disastrous interference which detached
the army of McDowell from the com
mand of McClellan and prevented the
capture of Richmond, which was other
wise probable and certain.
The first day of the New Year is to be
signalized by an act of folly in promulga
ting the new and final Edict of Emanci
pation. It is an act of folly because it is
utterly unauthorized by law, and can be
productive of no good, while it may do
much harm in dividing our people in
their unity of purpose and in their ear
nestness of action. Should it be the
means of exciting even in a small degree
any of the insurrection hoped for by des
perate men, it will deserve a name of
more than folly ; it will then be reckon
ed an act of wickedness.;
We speak thus of these things because
we have an unswerving devotion to law,
and thit devotion requires reprehension
of every violation of law. If law be not
rightfully observed, we are in the midst
of Revolution as well as in the midst of
Insurrection. It is required by para
mount law that insurrection be suppress
ed. It is the President's duty to see it
done ; it is the duty of the people to aid
and assist him ; to obey the law through
Lhim. Allegiance requires it, and this is
an indissolable bond. But allegiance
does not suppress the right to protest
against illegal acts. The people have an
unfailing power of unfailing remedy.
Patient endurance will surely bring it;
endure then ; be watchful, be firm, and
all will be well.
Auditor of State.
We see it announced in a number of
the Democratic papers that William Hub
bard, Esq., of Logan county, will be pre
sented at the next State Convention for
nomination as Auditor of State. This is
no doubt done under the expectation that
a successor to the present Auditor must
be elected in 1863. The present Audi
tor entered on his office in February, 1 860,
and the term of service is four years. It
will hence be seen that the movement ie
premature. When the time shall come,
the nomination of Mr. Hubbard will be
so fit and proper that he will perhaps
have no competitor.
We hear it continually said that our
merchants were never selling so many
goods; and some of them are not slow at
exciting the fears of the people that pri
ces may be higher still. Every man who
buys a thing he does not now actually
want, lest it may be higher when he does
want it, helps to make the thing he dreads.
This is all idle fear, and it is mischie
vous. We have free trade with all the
world, and nothing can be long above its
proper price if gambling in prices can be
suppressed. Some things are necessarily
higher from the scarcity of material and
the scarcity of labor. That will nat
urally diminish consumption, and this
will in part cure the evil. We speak for
the good of our readers, not for the good
Then and Now.
" Like begets like."
English Bird BoJL
About the year 1676 the British Gov
ernment sent a Commissioner, Edmund
Randolph, to New England to inquire
into the state of the colony, and the Com
missioner in answer to certain queries
furnished to him by the Council of Trade
and particularly to the Eight Enquiry.
" What hath bees the original cause of the
present war with the Indians?" said this
- "Others impute the cause to arise from
some injuries offered to the Sachem Phi!

land called Mount nope, a very fertile.
pleasant and rich soil, some English had
a mind to dispossess him thereof; who
never wanting some pretence or other to
attain their ends, complained of injuries
done by Phillip and his Indians to their
stock and cattle. Whereupon the Sach
em Phillip, was often summoned to ap
pear before the magistrates, sometimes
imprisoned, and never released but upon
parting with a considerable part of his
lands. This was a case of military ne
cessity, though the people of that day
had not found out the name of it

Drafting and Substitutes.
We had occasion recently to notice an
order from the War Department, under
which it was decided that where a draft
ed person hires a substitute, he and the
substitute change places. So that the
substitute while serving another man's
turn on hire, is actually discharged from
serving his own turn, and the employer
liable to be drafted again. We exposed
the absurdity and unlawfulness of this
decision. We now learn that in Seneca
county the Government has pursued a
course precisely opposite, and where i
substitute has been accepted and muster
ed into service and afterwards deserted,
the drafted man wag called on for another
substitute! How can this be, if the
drafted man and the substitute change
places? Under these rules this might
happen: a man is drafted in the first
draft he hires a substitute and is liable
to draft again ; he is drafted nine times
in succession and each time furnishes i
substitute ; the tenth time he gives him
self and his nine substitutes all desert ;
the Department calls on him to furnish
nine more men. A little common sense
and a little knowledge of law, reasonably
well mixed togetner would be very desi
rable in the War Department.
In the year 1813 Congress assessed a
direct km. of three millions of dollars on
the States, and apportioned among them.
The portion assessed to the State of Ohio
to be paid by residents, was set down in
the law by counties, as follows :
Columbiana & Stark
Trumbull A Ashtabula
Some of the counties here set down,
embraced at that time a larger territory
than now. Some of the changes in rela
tive amounts compared with the present
are very remarkable.
When the Provisional Government of
Virginia elected its Legislature in 1861,
and that Legislature elected the Senators
fill the vacancies then existing, the
Senate of the United States received Mr.
Carlisle and Mr. Willey as the Senators
from that State. They now hold their
seats as Senators from Virginia as always
known in our Union. The Congress have
passed a law to admit Western Virginia
a new State, which will of course be
entitled to two new Senators. When
they shall be chosen and come forward
take their seats the Senate will have a
troublesome question to settle, among the
many other troubles it is making for it
self. Will the four Senators all he admitted.
A New Fraud by the Postmaster-General.
The public have been promised that
the postage stamps used as currency in
making change should be redeemed. The
premise is to be kept in this fashien :
Only certain post offices are to be des
ignated as places of redemption.
The stamps are to be assorted and sent
in envelopes marked with the amount,
and with the owners name and residence.
No person or per ton shall make more
than one deposit. . .
No stamps will be redeemed unless pre
sented within thirty days from the time the
particular post office is authorized to re
deem. This last provision is" an '. impudent
fraud r But it is a fraud which the Postmaster-General
may safely practice, for
his former fraud in changing the postage
stamps and refusing to redeem the old
ones, was very tamely endured.'
Fund Commissioners of Ohio.
We see it stated that the Fund Com
missioners of the State of Ohio, have de
parted to New York to make payment of
the semi-annual interest of the State debt,
which is payable there. This is certain
ly a very bad arrangement that the Au
ditor, Treasurer and Secretary of State
should all be absent from their offices for
a period of two weeks, and particularly
on the day when the Legislature is to
meet. The arrangement is one which
tends t0( lower the State in the eyes of
those in whose estimation the State should
stand high. The old plan of selecting
as State agent, a New York City bank of
large capital (of not less than two mil

our public debt should be revived as
much cheaper, and in the end much
General Burnside on the Fredericksburg
That General Burnside's ardent aad
impulsive letter assuming to himself the
whole responsibility of the heavy blow
and great discouragement which fell upon
the hopes and heart of th.f nation at
Fredericksburg should have been eager
ly siezed upon by the organs of the ad
ministration to turn upon that comman
der the tide of public censure and disap
pointment is natural. No better scape
goat than a modest and magnanimous
Boldier could be asked for by men to
whom modesty and magnanimity tire
known only as foibles to be used, and
weaknesses to be played upon.
But General Burnside's modesty is too
honest and his magnanimity too complete
to serve the base purposes to which it
has been sought to convert them. . His
evidence yesterday given before a com
mittee of Congress settles the great bur
den of our shame and sorrow with crush
ing weight upon shoulders to which the
iron hand of History will fasten it for
ever. The fatal assault upon the works at
Fredericksburg began, as General Bom-
side with a just historic instinct yester
day set forth, on that wild November
night when in a blinding snow storm the
command of the great Army of the Poto
mac was snatched from the general who
had created, wielded, saved, and made it
illustrious, to be conferred upon one of
his subordinate officers. That officer, too
loyal a patriot to forget his country's
need in his own ambition, too true a sol
dier not to know the limits of his own
and the measure of his commander's ca
pacity, stamps the whole story of the
subsequent campaign upon his picture of
its opening scenes.
A cabinet without a single military in
stinct: a general-in-chief without the
vestige of a plan: a commander of the
Army of the Potomac who knew less of
the positions and condition of the forces
than any general in the army, succeed
ing, at a moment's notice against his own
will and against his own earnest protes
tations, THE ONLY GENERAL WHO IN
HIS JUDGMENT WAS COMPETENT TO COM
MAND THAT ARMY!"
And this in the outset of a winter cam
paign, in the face of a powerful, skillful,
and active enemy, operating upon his own
soil. Who wills the causes, wills the con
sequences. The men who did the nation
this deadly wrong in November are the
real authors of the catastrophe which
throws its dark shadow over our coming
Christmas Day. Their pensioned advo
cates in the press have been over hasty.
In the flush of the nation's first sorrow
and anger General Burnside generously
became his own accuser. But he will
not be his own judge, and the verdict of
the nation alone can fix upon the true
criminals the responsibility of that cruel
conspiracy, not -against General McClel
lan and his reputation, but against the
lives of his army, against the f&nderest
affections of American homes and against
the honor of the American people, which
began with the midnight advent of Gen
eral Buckingham into the camp at War-
renton, and culminated in the midnight
retreat of Burnside's decimated army
across the fatal Rappahannock. N. Y.

The military ways of the administraj
tion are past all findisg out. For a long
time past the loyal press of the West
have been singing the praises of Colonel
Lee, of the Seventh Kansas- Cavalry. He
had cleared the country of guerrillas; he
was in the advance of General Grant's
army, and had always been successful;
in Bhort, he was becoming as famous
among the Unionists as Morgan was
among the confederates. Now, what
does the administration do? Make him
a general ? Not at all. It removed him
and appointed in his place a Colonel
Dickey, who had seen little or no serviee,
but who had the good luck to have come
from Illinois, and therefore had influence
in a certain high quarter.' -
But mark what came of it. Colonel
Dickey fell into a trap of the enemy the
day after he was appointed and lost ninety-five
men, besides suffering the shame
of a defeat. So we go, East and West.
N. Y. World.
Mr. J. S. Rarey, the horse-tamer, who
was appointed by General Halleek to in

which is chiefly remarkable for
having nothing in it Any educatedav

Sketch of General Bayard.
Brigadier General George D. Bayard, the
gallant cavalry officer of Burnside' army, has
been killed. He was a native of New York,
and was appointed a cadet to the West Point
Military Academy in 1852. He graduated
on the 30th of June, 1856, and on the 1st of
July, 1856, was appointed a 2d Lieutenant of
the 1st TJtiited States Cavalry. On the 30th
of August, 1861, he was promoted to a Cap
taincy of his Regiment, now known as the
4th United States Cavalry. lie was allowed
leave of absence to take the command of the
lirst Pennsylvania Cavalry, and in General
Orders No. 59. Washington, June 10, be is
announced as a Brigadier General oi Volun
teers, commanding cavalry.
"He has made several brilliant cavalary
dashes both before and since bis appointment
as General and gave great promise of great
military ability in the future. General Bay
ard was wounded in the face bj' a poisoned
arrow by Indians on the fron'eers, from the
effects of which he had never recovered, and
which his physicians predicted would ulti
mately cause his death. He often expressed
a determination never to die from that cause
if he could die in the battles of his country.
The editor ol the Commercial wrote from
Washington the following touccing account
of the gallant Bayard's death.
"Gen. Bayard, ot the Cavalry a chival
rous young officer, without fear or reproach,
as the old chevalier of the same Dame was
mortally wounded by a shell in Saturday's
battle, and lived until next morning. During
the night he was in perfect possession of his
faculties, and dictated several letters one to
his father, one to the young lady to whom he
was engaged to be married, and one to Col
Colburn, of Gen. McClellan'g staff. In the
letter to the latter he said : " Tell McClellan
that my last regret, as a military man, is that
I did not die serving under him."
Economize is Paper. In the present stage
of high prices it is the duty of every one to
economize in every direction possible. One
of the leakages which may and should be
stopped, is that of the two free use of paper.
The price of paper has increased enormously,
in consequence of the scarcity of the rags of
which to make it. As yet no article has been
found to take the place of rags in this manu
facture and it therefore becomes all users of
paper, of whatever kind, to economize as they
have never done belore. When writing a
letter, let half a sheet answer instead of a
whole one. Never waste a s''eet nor an en
velope. Save the fragments cf paper and sell
them to be made over. In this way each one
may effect a saving to his or her own pocket,
and at the same time benefit the world at
large by lessening the scarcity which now
prevails. It is in these little savings that the
people in this country should learn a lesson
of the people of other lands.
Effect of Cleanliness.
Count Rumford, the celebrated prac
tical philosopher, whose writings have
been of greater value to mankind than
the abstruse speculations of a host of
metaphysicians, thus describes the ad
vantages of cleanliness :
" With what care and attention do the
feathered race wash themselves and put
their plumage in order ; and how per
fectly neat, clean and elegant do they ev
er appear. Among the beasts of the
field, we find that those which are the
most cleanly, are generally the most gay
and cheerful ; or are distinguished by a
certain air of tranquility and content
ment; and singing birds am always re
markable for the neatness of their plum
age, bo great is the effect of cleanliness
upon man, that it extends even to his
moral character. Virtue never dwelt long
with filth ; nor do I believe there ever
was a person scrupulously attentive to
cleanliness, who was a consummate vil
lain." Let the young man who blushes take
courage, for it is the color of virtue.
