THE COMBAT DEEPENS!
Tbo last week has been ono fraught
with daring feats, on the pari of our ad
versaries, and of peril to the federal forco.
and havo taught us two important lessons,
from which we mar grcatlv profit.
First, that our enemies aro mndo bold
by our supineness, our want of a vigor
ous, earnest prosecution of the war as
witnesses the late raid of Stuart's Caval
ry, if true as reported ns penetrating our
lines to the very headquarters of the
Commanding General, and, after taking
as prisoners of war his staft-ofliccrs, rifling
bis trunk of hi most valuablo papers
despatches, well delineated plans of tho
entire campaign, and even tho muster
rolls of our vast army escaping within
their owu lines unharmed. Also that
most bold, confident, daring net of the
wholo war, that of the rebel General
Jackson, throwing himself with 20,000
troops between our forces and tho Capital
of tho nation, bent, evidently, on laying
to ashes the very throno of our empire,
though the attempt should involvo in
certain desl ruction his wholo host.
Was ever boldness and bravery moro
admirably illustrated or better calculated
to teach us tho second great lesson, to
wit: that our cuemics, too, aro Ameri
cans, equal in strategy and fighting poir
or with ourselves, numerically considered,
and that nothing but superiority of num
bers, tho greatest vigilance, "earnestness
and even desperation on our part can gain
us an ultimate victory ! and, further, that
soon, very soon, wo must conquer or be
conquered f Dangers aro thickening on
every hand. We aro being beset by foes
without and foes within.
On our Western Borders looms up
danger, dark with impending evil. A gen
eral rising of tho Indians on tho plains is
anticipated. They threaten to dig up
tho tomahawk, sharpen tho scalping-knife,
and mako indiscriminate war upon inno
cent and defenceless settlers, instigated,
no doubt, by tho enemies of tho Repub
lic. Such a war, cruel and attrocious it
may bo to tho last degree, m most seri
ously to bo deprecated. It would indeed
bo to us nt the present a most direful ca
lamity, to avert which tho most prompt,
decisive measures should at onco bo inau
gurated that that threatened danger may
be nipped in tho bud, a war of subjuga
lion at once entered upon, not ouly to
ward out 6nvage foes, but toward all our
enemies in arms, or of extermination, if
need bo, to rescuo our country from revo
lution, anarchy and destruction.
For Heaven's sake, let us not by our
Bupinoncss, want of zeal or earnestness,
suffer tho golden moment now passing to
bo unimproved. Let such a blow bo
struck, at once, as shall inspire our ene
mies every whero with awe, and send con
fusion and consternation through all their
marshaled hosts. If, through inactivity,
the Republic is lost, the wholo civilizod
world will justly pass sentence upon usf
that wo aro not worthy tho glorious,
heaven-born trust of sclf-governraeut, not
worthy tho rich legacy left U3 by our
fathers, and purchased at tho expense of
so much blood and treasure, not worthy
to be and remain tho most happy, pros
perous and exalted nation under the blue
heavens above us.
Let us, then, now, at once, quit our
selves liko brave men, and exhibit from
tho President down to tho humblest citi
zen, that we aro united in purpose, and
terribly earnest in tho salvatiou of our
country, and that by tho help of God
and our own right arms wo will conquer.
If wo havo not forces enough already in
tho field to quickly accomplish our grand
purpose, in connection with tho 000,000
just called for, let an additional 600,000
or a million even, if necessary, bo at once
summoned to tho conflict, and the people
will promptly and heartily respond, amen !
Yes, rather lot every man that can carry
A musket bo summoned to the field, and
every dollar of trcasuro exhausted, than
that tho sun of our existenco should go
down in obscurity and this last experi
ment of self-government ou earth be held
up to tho gaze of monarchs and tyrants
as a most miserable and signal failure.
Not it must not be I Let tho Presi
dent and his Cabinet, now that an awful
crisis in our aflairs is upon us, as well as
our Geuorals in the field, show to the peo
ple, what they have a right to expect, that
a resolute earnestness and vigor in tho
probocution of the war hitherto unknown
is to be at once inaugurated and carried
out, and that one hour's unnecessary de
lay shall no longer be countenanced. Let
but one effective, telling blow bo struck
and tho whole country will arise en masse,
so great is tho anxiety now manifested for
tho success of our cause, and render jvery
and any aid required to crush the mon
ster rebellion and send it back reeling,
bleeding and subdued to tho den of iufa-
my whenco it camo. Thus trusting iu
God, and keeping our powder dry, wo be
lieve a few months will suffice to the ac
complishment of the nation's' desire sav
ing our country, destroying her enemies,
and vindicating hor honor.
FROM REV., JOSEPH ANDERSON.
Washington', D. C, Aug. 25, 1862.
Dwioht Cutler, Esq.,
Tho army of tho Potomac, after a alow,
fatiguing march of ten days, the priva
tions and trials of which I can not enu
merate, arrived from Harrison's Landing,
on tho James River, nt Alexandria, on tho
Potomac, on Friday last, tho 22d, and
immediately, as quick ay cars could bo
had to convey them, were sent off by rail
to the neighborhood of tho Rappahannoc.
The officers of our regiment left all their
tents and baggage at Alexandria, and
took nothing but their blankets, intend
ing tho sky only for A tent. They ex
pected severo fighting, and they will
doubtless find it so. And hence Col.
Poo, who is in command of our Brigade,
nnd Major Pierce, of our regiment, de
tailed mo to remain iu Alexandria and to
Jiurry on tho troops without delay ns
they arrived. So, having somo time on
my hands, I camo up to Washington and
received somo of my pay.
I intend to resign and return home at
tho end of Octoder next, if' I am spared,
and you may tell tho church and society
so. A letter from Grand Haven has not
reached mo for A long time. It appears
as if all tho world had shaken hands will
mo and bado me a final-adieu. I do want
to hear so much from Grand Haven.
How you aro all doing what you aro do
ing who is alivo, dead, married, enlisted
or run away to Canada.
I had a great notion to tako tho cars
this aftornoon for Chicago, and surprise
you all with a visit of a few days, and
would have dono so but for two reasons :
It is against military law to go without
leave of absenco, and, although my own
officers would not complain, yet I would
bo giving tho benefit of my example to
what is wrong -and demoralizing to tho ,
army, and, further, it would cost mo
about fifty dollars for tho pleasure of say
ing, " How do you do!" So I must do
ny myself tho pleasure. You should
know, too, that I can not resign when I
please even although my regiment were
all satisfied yet Major General Kearney,
at tho head of our Division, may refuse
consent, and often does so for ho thinks
that no officer should resign but upon
somo occasion of tho utmost emergency.
However, I mean to try it in October, if
not before. My health is poor, and I want
rest. I mean, if I can, to go out into the
country and stop with somo farmer for n
few days, if I can find ono to take mo.
With kind remcmbrancos to all my
friends, and hoping to see them all indue
time, I am yours very truly,
Our Quota. The population of Mich
igan according to the last census amounts
to 749,003, tho population of Ottawa
county to 13,000, each in rouud numbers.
Tho call for tho last 300,000 oj our Slato
requires 11,680 men, or ono to6ixly-four
inhabitants, nearly. Ottawa County
should then furnish as her quota, on tho
census basis, 203 men on tho Inst call of
tho President, or 406 on the last two
calls. But, as wo estimate tho number,
and if it should provo to bo so on tho ac
tual count, our duly in that regard is ac
tually accomplished, and tho ouly duty
that seems to remain at present is to fur
nish our quota on tho special draft to fill
up old regiments, which could easily have
been effected by volunteering, had we
known our allotment iu time, and thus
the necessity of a draft at all in our coun
Gen. Piiklps' Resignation accepted.
Tho Washington Intelligencer stales
that the resignation of Gen. Phelps, of
Gen. Butler's department, was promptly
accepted as soon as it arrived, and that it
had been determined beforehand to recall

Grand Rapids, just from " Dixie Land,"
contrasting tho privileges of tho children

A Soldier, who was in all the late bat
tles before Richmond, remarks that " It is
astonishing how indifferent to danger
man becomes in action after being in it a
short timo. While supporting the battery,
some of our men lay down on tho ground
and slept soundly, utterly regardless" of
tho shells that were bursting around
them. If had not soon this, I cortainly
never would have believed it."
