From the Providence PoH.
Among those who fought in one of
our Rhodo Island regiments at Freder
icksburg, was a young man of our.
acquaintance who had lately been
ettlod as a pastor over one of the
Churches in this vicinity, and whose
devotion to the country was undoubted
by all who knew him. Ho v aa as re.
Tarkable for his frankness as for his
carnestnes? and patriotism ; and t
was therefore an easy matter for his
friends to learn that he had almost
boundless faith in tho policy of the
present Administration. Vo never
doubted Uls honesty when ho assured
U3 wa must rely on fighting alono in
dealing with this rebellion, and to
talk of an" thing ele, or find fault
wtththe management at Washington,
or intimate that .tho rcbollion couldn't
bo subduod by Abolition proclamations
and cannon balls, wa? moral treason.

A -v-f t!r.' Twe!:'th R-j.''me-t.
whom we had known as equally earnest
Republicans, had undergone a eh tne
of sentiment on this point, cur mind
ratura!' turned to our young an'!
very zealous friend, tho preacher
above referred to, who had cast his
lot with another company, and indeed
had done mro thr.n any on oL-n? to
f et it up. But w; heard nothing from
him until baturd W last, when one oij
his townsmen ceiled upon ws and show
od us a letter from him, dated on
Christmas afternoon. From this let
ter we are permitted to make the fol.
lowing extract :
"Well, this war is a big institution.
My private, 'treasonable' opinion is,
that if the affair continues to be man
aged ;n the same way, and by" the
same men who have charge of it now,
it will take, about eight hundred years
to settle it. I left homo with a patri
otic motive, and called upon my
friends and acquaintances tr go and
fight fr-r the Union. I looked upon
the subject very much as almost every
body at homo looked upon it. But
now the fence is down, and I can see.
The beam is out of my eye, and I
behold great droves of Government
swindlers, hordes of thieviug con
traotora and ploniy of ambitious otS
oers growing fat, whita men fall on the
field jn heaps liko winnows, bringing
Maoesa to thousands or lovmg c carts,
until tho bottom of my heart and with
indignation I cry out against wicked
Dtflg in high places, and call upon the
God of Abraham to interpose in behaif
ot our common country. No matter
if it be treason to say it, the majority
of this army believe that fightirg cat;
never settle tho di5oults under
which wo are laboring. The ar.r.v
was never ho ii-hdartenod and disvus
to.' .a .1 .;,iint.. Ivinnp ' AHrnrj
?his is the tone of many letters
reoeived here from Republicans in the
army, and tho end is cot yet. The
jxjojjle but more especially tho soldier?,
ae pening their eyes.

Trumbull, of Illinois, made a speerh, in -wtiioh
occurred th follow in? dcelaratiuu :
' I thank Go 1 that thu Kudoral arms wer.;

should not have had the Kmwr.ci.-.atiors Proc

Richmond, the backbone of tho reb.:'l:or.
would have been brokers, and the L'r.::n
would have bem restored with slavery rei'.a'.n

This man Trumbull had tho audacity to rr
b.ikc his nolleacue Kienirdson r?m-r:tly, in tho
Senate, for taakiug what he rallcl a partisan
