WEDNESDAY KVENINO, AUG. 27, IS02.
SHALL WE UNITED BE!
We shall publish in next week's issue the
election notico issued to iho Sheriffs of
the respective counties of our Stale.
Id all our history, 6inco wo became n
State, there never has becu a, time, prob
ably, when parly politics' have been so
generally suspended as at the present.
Such uri?.!?irn!'w of tho'.igM, filing and
views now prevail, respecting the great
struggle for national existence, that, in
fact, we had almost forgotten that we had
ever used our timo, money or talents to
defeat the election to office of those whose
.political preferences were autagonistical
to those to which we ndhero and cherish.
Our Country, with us, has been for
the last half-year our theme. Wo have
studied its position, meditated upon the
thousand perils that beset it and threat
en its very existence, weighed in the bal
ance of our own mind tho chances for and
against its talvation, compared our re
sources with thoso of our ungrateful,
relentless, determined foe, and wo have,
after a candid consideration of all tho cir
cunstancos in tho case, made up our mind
that nothing but tho efforts of a thor
oughly united pcoplo can ever save our
beloved country from irrctriovablo ruin.
In union, now, is emphatically our
strength. With a divided North wo nev
er can succeed. Will it not bo a hnzatd
ous experiment for us at tho present crisis
in our national atl'airs to risk any consid
erable division of feeling on government
policy even I A closo observance of tho
conduct of political campaigns, shows that
secret wire-pulling, deep laid schemes and
petty intrigues, instituted and carried out
Jlr tho ascendancy of " our side," have in
them any and every other element than
of concord, good feeling or unity of pur
pose. Wo can not pciceive how it U pos
sible for antagonist ical issues to bo suc
cessfully placed boforo tho people at our
next general election. Old party issues
should at least bo suspended. No con
tingency should bo allowed to arise, w ith
in tho next two months, that will call for
a divided sentiment of tho people. Sec
tional or party strifo is at all limes to bo
deprecated, much moro in our present na
tional status; and, it seems to us, candid
ly, for tho sovcral States at tho North,
now, wilhiu themselves respectively, to
split upon men, in a time when such a dif
ference is altogether uncalled for by the
force of circumstances, is extremely haz
ardous to tho safety of our country. Tho
direct tendency of such a courso is to
mar if not destroy unity and without
unity we arc lost, forever lost as a nation.
With us cur country is first, last and
uppermost. Right or wrong wo aro
pledged to its salvation. Lcl, then, tho
safety of our country, its redemption from
tho perils that so soriously threaten its
overthrow, bo first in our thoughts, and
let every act, political or moral, havo rcf
erenco to tho best interests of tho Repub
lic, its redemption and perpetuity. We
aro ready to unito with any and every
political party, hitherto worthy of respect,
on broad, national grounds, for the bet
ter accomplishment of tho great object
iu view, lha preservation of tho Govern
ment, tho Constitution reverenced and
obeyed, as it is, and wo again a free pco
plo then, if needful for our well being,
let party choices arise, and party senti
ments and men be supported, but only
with that degree of moderation that shall
result as a safeguard and protection in
the future to tho heaven-born rights of a
great, wiso, frco and prosperous people,
jealous of their national honor and ever
watchful lost corruption and political in
intrigue sap tho foundation on which rests
tho great pillars of Stale.
The VicKsncno Canal. An im
pression has arisen out of tho reports of
late events at Vicksburg that tho place
has been entirely abandoned, and that
tho rebels will have full and uninterrupted
possession of tho Peninsula opposite tho
town. In fact one of tho statements pub
lished, distinctly staled this tobolheliko
lihood. But such is not the fact. On
tho conlrarj, tho grcatost confidenco is
foil in tho ultimalo success of the cnnal.
It was finished jusl at tho timo tho wa
ter reached a low stage, and consequent
ly there was not force enough in the cur
rent to cut a channel. Tho first rise iu
the Mississippi will probably consummate
tho work, and leave Vicksburg, or what
there is Wl of it, somo six or eic;ht milos
from the river.
ARE SOLDIERS HUMAN BEINGS?
On Thursday last wo paid a flying vis
it to Camp Sigol, at Ionia. We had a
cordial shako of tho hand and a pleasai.t
interview with tho " Wolveriuea" and
others, were pleased with ihe proficiency
already acquired in tho first rudiments of
" forward, march !" and the comfort dis
played in and about the Camp, the tents,
neat uniform, fec, furnished our braves.
But, one thing caused our blood to warm
and raantlo our check with an indignant
blush, and that was tho kind and quanti
ty of rations providod a small slice of
tho fattest kind of pork, tainted at that,
a dry crust of bread and a cup of water,
for breakfast, a dry crust of bread, apioce
of fattest pork and a cup of water alone,
for dioucr, and, by way of change, fat
pork, bread and wator, for supper, and
lhAt, too, in the very heart of ono of the
finest agricultural regions in tho Grand
Iliver Valley, and within ono milo of ft
villago where scores of wagons daily ar
rive laden with all tho luxuries of field
and garden, cheap and abundant,
Tho query forthwith arose, aro soldiers
indeed human beings! If so, why fed
liko dogs! Who is to blame for such a
stale of things? Who thus robs tho
bravo soldier of that which so materially
conduces to his comfort and health, and
.to which ho is justly entitled f Tho Quar
termaster! Can ho bo so inhuman! And
if no belter care is taken of tho soldier,
now, what will bo his treatment when at
the scat of tho war ! Is ho fit for the po
sition! Out on such an officer! If our
troops wcro in an enemy's country, and
no better fare could bo obtained, well
our boys would never complain ; but now
they have a right to complain and to bo
heard.
Last Monday morning wo saw at Coop
ervillo Richard Piatt, Esq., of Polkton,
who accompanied his son, a member of
tho " Wolverines," to Ionia, but who, on
beholding tho food furnished, came homo,
purchased a quantity of butter, eggs, bcr
ries, &c, and started to tho relief of our
own "Wolverines," a number of whom
havo already become unfit for duty, on
account of tho improper and inefficient
diet furnished them. His own benevolent
and patriotic disposition prompted him to
tho good deed. As wo havo fathers,
brothers and friends there, ought wo not,
as intimately interested in their welfare,
demand that jnstico bo dono them, that
their welfare bo studied by Ihoso in au
thority over Ihem, that their healths bo
not sacrificed to tho cupidity of bogus pa
triols, who mako long speeches, tell what
sacrifices must bo mado for our country,
and then feed thoso rail) ing to tho rescue
of that country on food usually reserved
for dogs, and pocket tho proceeds of
wholesome rations withheld.
Anathemas on such men, tho contempt
ible hypocrites 1 Wo sco tho damning in
fluences of cupidity in tho wholo couduct
of this war and shall wo ever prosper
in crushing tho rebellion and restoring our
country till men in authority and position
lovo that country more "than paltry gold!
No, verily !
Such a desire for gain, for making prof
it out of Government contracts and tho
poor soldier, robbing both Government
and soldier to tho greatest possible oxtcnt,
is roost wicked, abominable yes, devil
ish! We havo had already too much of
it, ?.nd it is high time that it bo blotted
out, and ho is the noblest of patriots who
will assist to do it.
Only this Week. Keep in mind that
the draft for soldiers will take placo Boon
after tho first of September tho period
limited for volunteering then expiring.
Capt. S. L. Lowing, as announced in an
other column is recruiting for tho " 3d "

Mr. Pierre C. Duverney.
Dud In this village, on the 21st inst.,
Mr. Pierre C. Dcvernev. Mr. D. has
boon intimately connected with the histo
ry of our village. Ho was of French de
scent, born near Montreal, of Catholic pa-
rcuts, educated in that faith, and design
ed for the priesthood. But, At the age of
fifteen, in 1805, or thereabouts, he loft
tho parental roof clandestinely and en
gaged as a voyngeur in tho Indian Fur
Trado, up Lake Superior, under tho Eng
lish North-West Company, continuing in
that employment a a common band for
somo seven yoars, first with Mr. Magotta
and afterward with Mr. Dayies. He then
became a subordinate clerk, over a small
outfit, at Lac du Flambeau, first under
Erskin's, then Auld, And afterward Tru
man Warren, tho father of Capt. John B.
Warren, so well known as a lake captain.
Mr. D. continued connected with Mr.
Chas. Ermating, tho principal Factor of
that department, as an cmployce,till 1821,
when ho entered iho employ of the Amer
ican Fur Company, as principal clerk, iu
continuation of tho fur trade at Lac du
Flambeau, whore he remained eight years,
passing thus twenty-four years at that
lnko and the Superior region, and up to
1830. Tho two following years ho spent
with Rix Robinson, in this vicinity, in
charge of an outfit upon tho waters of
tho Muskegon, ono year at tho Badeau
place, near tho present villago, and tho
next year some distance up tho Musko
gon River. Tho thrco years following he
resided at Mackinaw, engaging a portion
of tho timo only in tho fur trado, till tho
fall of 1834, when, with his family, ho
accompanied Rev. Wm. M. Ferry and
family to this placo, and hero resided till
his death, ft period of nearly twenty-eight
vears. As wo before stated, ho was ed
ucated in the Calholic faith, but his con
ncction with tho American Fur Company
brought him in contact with Protestant
influences at the Island of Mackinaw, un
dcr tho ministerial labors of Rev. Wm,
M. Ferry, during his visits there. His
bitter animosity to tho Protestant faith
modifying and correcting influences of tho
gospel, and, iu 1820, ho united with tho
Protestant Church at that placo. Tho
following year Mrs. D. connected herself
with the same church, having their chil
drcn, four in number, baptized. They ro
maincd conncclod with the Presbyterian
Church, in Mackinaw, till 1834. In '36
they both united in tho organization of
tho First Presbyterian Church, at Grand
Haven, Mr. D. enjoying in that body the
position of ruling cider to the time of his
death. His quiet, unpretending manners
won tho respect of all acquainted will.
him. His funeral was attended on Fri
day last by a largo concourse of friends
Rev. D. M. CoorER officiating in tho
services.

under Morgan, near Gallatin, and were
defeated with a loss of 300 prisoners.
Tho Jackson Mississippian says the
Federal ram Suroptor grounded opposite
Bayou Sara. The authorities demanded
her surrender, but tho crew and stores
were put on transports and tho Sutnplor
blown op.
Tho Philadelphia Press has a letter
from Pope's army, dated tho 22d inst.,
which says that Gen. Sigcl had captured
2,000 rebels who had crossed tho Rappa
hannock on a bridge which was destroyed
by firo, a field battery cutting off their
retreat, and forcing a surrender after a loss
of 400 killed and wounded.
Skirmishing has boon going on for the
past three days, during which several
attempts were made by tho rebels to cross
the river, but wore each timo successfully
repulsed.
One Good Effect. Jeff, Davis do
clares, in a general order, that whenever
wo hang a spy or guerrilla, bo will retali
ate by hanging a Union officer. Upon
this tho Louisvillo Journal remarks :
" There is no evil without ils altendant
good, and it is barely possible that the
inauguration oi 6ucu a policy on ino pari
of the rebels might have ft tendency to
mako surrendering moro unfashionable
than it has unfortunately becomo of late,
If Colonels and others had a clear under
standing that they wcro to bo hung as
soon as they surrendered, we aro inclined
to think there would bo less surrendering
ana moro ngmjng.
How to Deal with Rebels. Major
W. C. Morcau, of iho Kentucky cavalry,
has a short way of dealing with the reb
els around Eminence, Kentucky, whore
he is stationod. He is ordered to levy on
" soccju norscs tor the army. 1 lie "se
cosh," in anticipation, run them off. Tho
Major finds it out, and goes and lakes
two cr three slaves as security for tho ro
turn of the horses. Tho horses always
como back. He finds tho remedy an ex'
cellcnt ono, infallible and of speedy ope
ration.
Suicide of a Deeply Afflicted
Volunteer. John Luch, of Milwaukee,
enlisted somo months ago. His wife was
almost broken hearted at his departure
for tho war, but as 6ho began to recover
her spirits, their little boy was drowucd
Tho father hearing of this, obtained a
short furlough to visit his wife, but arriv
cd tho day his wife had been carried, be
reft of reason, to tho almshouse Learn
ing that thero was little if any hopo of
her recovery, ho reported at headquarters,
and very soon afterwards committed sui
cido with a pistol.
A Negro Proposition to Guard
Rebel Prisoners Declined. Governor
Tod, of Ohio, having refused tho services
of colored volunteers, tho colored men of
Cleveland and Cuyaljoga county havo
mado him an offer to raiso somo regiments
(o guard tho rebel prisoners at Camp
Chase and Sandusky, and thus relievo two
regiments of well drilled soldiers for sor
vico in the field. Tho Governor, howeV'
cr, declined tho proposition.
The 6th Cavalry. Tho " Pino Horso
of tho War Woods," we understand has
obtained authority from the War Depart
ment to raise another regiment of caval
ry, to rendezvous at Grand Rapids. Our
Honorable member can engage in no
worlhior enterprise than to raiso men to
fight our battles, tho motive being purJy
a palriolic ono, that neither asks nor ro
coives other remuneration than the grati
tude of his countrymen.
Who are Liable to be Drafted ! -As
we understand the law, every man
bctwocn the ages of 18 and 45, not ex
empted by State laws, who is a citizon of
tho Uuilcd Statos, is liablo to bo drafted.
Men who havo never been naturalized,
though they may havo declared thoir in
tentions to becomo citizens, are said to be

in foreign countries aro citizens, and, if
residents hero, are liablo to bo drafted.
Arms going to Europe. Tho Provi
donco Post says: " In passing through
tho Worcester freight denot, on Wednes

cases marked Lo Grand Maitro d'Arlil
lorie, Cronsladt,' and upon inquiry learn
ed that they contained American rifles
bound to Russia. Tho arms wore manu
factured at Millbury, Massachusetts, for
the Russian government, and large quan
tities have been shipped during the past
year.
The Indian Massacre 500 Persona,
Killed.
St. Paul, Minn., Aug. 23.
Parties from MinnosotA River who
reached here last nip-tit stale tho scouts
estimate tho number of whites already
miieu Dy me dioux at tive hundred. The
opinion is based on tho number of bodies
discovered along the road and trails. It
is believed all the missionaries were kill
ed. Tho civilized Indians exceeded their
savage brethren in atrocities.
Mr. r renier, an interpreter, who has
spent most of his life among tho Indians,
volunteered to go alone, trusting to bis
knowledge of tho Indians, and disguised
himself so as to escapo detection. He
dressed and painted in savage style, and
arrived at the Upper Agency at nicht.
The place was literally a habitation of
death. Ho visited all tho houses and saw
their former occupants lying dead, somo
on the door-steps, somo inside, and oth
ers scattered in the yards.
Ho went to tho houso of Hon. J. K.
Brown, and recognized every member of
his family, eighteen in all, murdered.
He visited Beaver Creek and found fif
ty families killed. He went to every
house and recognized tho bodies of near
ly all tho former inhabitants.
Among thoso recognized at tho Agen
cy were N. Givcns and family, Mr. Gal-
brailh and children, Dr. Wakeheld and
family, John Toddens and family, John
and Edward Mavncr and two missionaries,
Rev. Dr. Williamson and Rev. Mr. lliggs.
Ex-Governor Sibley now marching to
tho relief of Fort Ridgcley, reports Sioux
bands united in carrying out a concerted
and desporalo scheme, and says ho will
only be too happy to find powerful upper
bands of Yanktons and other Indians not
united with them.
Mr. Frenier, iho disguised interpreter,
writes Gov. Ramsey, lrorn Henderson,
21st. Ho says ho left Fort Ridgcly at 5
A. M. Thero wore 2,000 Indians around
Fort Ridgoly and tho wooden buildings
wero frowning. Ho thinks other tribes
aro joining the Sioux and proscut ft for
midable array.
A reliable letter, dated Glencoo, 21st,
says the injury done by tho stampede of
settlers is iramonso.
Another such scene of woo can hardly
be found in tho South, as in Meeker, tho
northern part of Sibley and other coun
ties.
In St. Paul and tho adjoining country,
all available horses aro being gathered lo
crether, and all sorts of weapons will bo
used by willing hands for iho immedialo
and summary punishment of thoso auda
cious ana rascally Indians.
The New Camp of Instruction.
A new Camp of Instruction, at Clouds'
Mills, somo four miles from Alexandria
has been arranged for 50,000 men. Thith
cr, as fast as they arrive, tho new regi
ments are sent, and commenco at onco
tho drill necessary lo fit them for tho
field, and tho suppression of Confederates.
Brigadier General Casey, of Pennsylva
nia, who has distinguished himself in sev
eral battles in Virginia, will havo charge
of the whole affair, and will doubtless
well and speedily perform this most im
portant duty. By tho timo tho extreme
hot weather is over, tho men will bo fitted
for active service; and then woo unto the
now rejoicing chivalry. Thocntiro num
ber will reach there in ten days, it being
the iulention to forward them at tho rale
of 5,000 per day.
The New Comet. On iho evening of
Iho 6th inst. wo had a look at the new
comet through Mr. Fitz's large telescope.
No tail was visible, but a fan-shaped
brush of comelary matter was thrown out
toward tho 6un tho phenomenon that
usually precedes the formation of tho tail.
This brush faded away into tho sky with
out any defined boundary or other evi
denco of tho comet's passage through a
resisting medium. All of tho phenome
na cf this comet will bo carefully watched
by many observers eager to sco whether
they will throw any light on theexistenco
of attenuated mailer in space, or on any
of tho other unsolved problems of tho uni

They also broke into our desk and stole a
