"Little Mac" IJcfoi e Richmond
Can lie lie Loyal.?
We commend the following letter to
the consideration of all those who have
been wont to think General M'Clellan a
great and loyal and patriotic man, and
who look upon Vallandigham as a vilified
and much-abused individual :
To the Members of the Xational Union Club,
Philadelphia : , .
Gentlemen: I am in possession of
your note, in which you ask me if I re
member having made certain assertions
at the rooms of thVNational Union Club
in January last, on my return from the
rebel lines, in regard to uren. George B.
M'Clellan and Clement. L. Vallan-
digham, and desiring to know if I would
reiterate said statement. .
I recollect perfectly well having made
certain statements in regard to the two
persons named, and in presence of several
members of the Club.
In response to your inquiry if I would
repeat said statement, I will answer you
by saying : ,',rirst, That while the battle
before Richmond, Virginia, in 18G2, was
till progressing, and immediately alter
Gen'., M'Clellan had fallen back from
before that city, in company with a friend,
an officer in the rebel service, who was
prevented from joining his command in
the fight in question, on account of a
wound received . at the battle of Seven
Pines, and being provided with a special
permit from the Avar Department atf
llichmond, I visited the fortifications
around llichmond, and advanced to a
distance of about two miles north of that
city, where we met Col. Gayle, of the 12th
Alabama regiment, who was a particular
riend of the officer in whose company I
was; also Lieut. Col. Pickens, of thesamo
regiment, with who 111 1 llu d the advantage
of a personal acquaintance. The Col. was
superintending the disin4erment of - a
number of cases of U. fc- rifles, which lay
buried, in the ground, and in rows, the
soil heaped over them as if they were
craves. -Pour of tbo cases of rifles were
already unburicd when I reached the spot,
and I had the (to me unpleasant) satis
faction of handling some of those guns,
which, had already been taken out of those
cases. . , . , .. . , : '
I heard Col. .Gayle say that the inter
ment of these euns was known at lhe
War Department (Rebel) even before
M'Clellan's retreat from before that city.
On. the inquiry of my friend and Dr.
Kelly, of the rebel army, from Col. Gayle,
if he thought it had been intended that
said guns should fall iuto the hands of
the Confederates, the Col. answered in
the affirmative, and concluded by saying,
"Mac's all right." ;
Not more than a hundred yards distant
rom this spot, Lieut. Col. Pickens pointed
out to me a number of ambulances two
hundred and ten in number and said he
had assisted at their capture, and that,
when captured, the horses belonging to
said ambulances were, hitched, some to
trees and some to the rear of the ambu
lances. As I was then in the employ of
the United States, it was my business to
gather as much information in regard to
military matters as possible, and on my
inquiry of Col. Pickens if, ho thought
these ambulances had been intended to be
in the same "bargain" as the rifles, he
said: "I don't see what elsc:they should
have been intended for, for they were just
where you see. them, and the horses
hitched as you see them, while tho fight
was going on right here." .
Presently somo whisky wa3 handed
round, and wo all drank a toast to "Little
Mac," ' ' " ' 1 ' ." ;
, About the month of April of the same
year, as I was going from Richmond to
Mobile, in company with Lieut. Wiltz
and Dr. Knoed of Missouri, and Dr.
Fontleroy, of Virginia, the two latter gen
tlemen being of the rebel Gen. Price's
staff, we met with' Brig. Gen. Watson, of
Alabama. Gen. Watson said in my pres
ence that then,' or at any other time after
the war, he could give satisfactory proof
that George B. M'Clellan, of the Federal
army, at the outbreak of the rebellion
and during the preliminary arrangementsJ
for the organization of the Confederates
army, had offered his services to the Con
federate Government, but that as the
Confederate Government had resolved to
give rank in preference to officers former
ly in the United States service, according
to seniority of rank, they could not give
to M'Clellan what he desired, as other
officers ranked him in seniority ; and that
M'Clellan having become offended at this,
then offered his services to the United
States. - . ' .
'In December, 18G2, I had occasion to
call on Governor Shorter of Alabama,
who wa3 then sojourningat the Huntsville
hotel, Huntsville, Alabama. Governor
Shorter introduced me to General Watson,
who was present. The General recogniz
ed me immediately. And, as the Govern
or resumed a conversation with another
person in the room, I, while in conversa
tion with the General, had occasion to re
fer to our trip to Mobile, and I purposely
brought about the conversation in refer
ence to General M'Clellan, and General
Watson" reiterated the statement he had
previously, made in regard to M'Clellan -
In regard to Clement L. Vallandighara,
the Ohio traitor, I will say that during his
sojourn at Richmond he was repeatedly
closeted with Jeff. Davis, 'James A'. Sed
don, the rebel Secretary of War, and 'Ju
dah P. Benjamin, the rebel Secretary of
State. . , : . ; , -
During my visit to Richmond at that
epoch, I learned from reliable sources
(rebel officials) that this Ohio traicor had
pledged his word to the rebel authorities
that if the Democratic party at the North
succeeded in electing their candidate at
the next Presidential election, he . would
use all his influence to obtain peace on the
basis of a recognition of the Confederate
States as a separate ' and independent gov
ernment. !. ;;i ;':. . .-'. 1 ; .
Moreover, during my stay at Richmond,
having called on Mr. Benjamin, the Sec
retary of State, with a view to obtain an
interview on business of a private charac
ter, I was told by an official in attendance
at the Department of State-who of course
believed me to be a loyal confederate
that it was uncertain when I could chance
to see Mr; Benjamin ; and' that-as the
visitor of Mr. Benjamin was Mr. Vallari
dighani, whom this official styled the
"Ohio refugee.' the conference might be
protracted to a late hour. On jthat day,
although I waited until after the hour for
transacting business at that department, I
did not get to seo Mr. Benjamin.
I. At that time' divers were the rumors in
private circles among, the rebels, that
Vallandigham had pledged himself to the
Confederate cause. Of this the War De-
partment at Washington was informed in
a report made by me and other Govern-
. Great were the expectations of the reb
els during my last visit within their lines,
if this Vallandigham faction succeeded in
electing their candidate to the Presidency.
Let it be remembered that this Vallan
digham faction are the men who seek to
elect G eorge B. M'Clellan to an office
which none but loyal men should fill.
Very respectfully, yours, &c,
Philadelphia, Sept. 14, 1864.
Bgi. It is important that the people
should know and act upon the information
that, when the draft is made in a sub
district, it should not stop, but rather
stimulate recruiting therein. The circu
lar from the Provost Marshal General's
office, dated September 15th, and issued

Who JBegran the War!
It seems almost absurd to ask such a
question at this time, when it is a matter
of notoriety all over the civilized world
that the rebels took up arms . against the
Government, captured the United States
forts and arsenals, and set up an indepen
dent Government, before we fired a shot
Yet the Copperhead orators actually haVb
tho audacity to charge the inauguration
and blame of the war upon Mr. Lincoln.
A stranger to our affairs, on hearing them
would certainly supposo that Mr. Lincoln
had grievously oppressed the rebel States,
and driven them to secession. " lie would
never dream that heore Mr. Lincoln tooc
hii seat some of the rebel States seceded,
seizing all the forts, arsenals and munitions;
of war they could possess themselves of,,
and that the Montgomery constitution was
also framed and adopted before be came
to the Presidential chair; Just notice th6
record. Abraham Lincoln, whom these
fellows accuse of having assailed these in
nocent and long-suffering Southern States;
was inaugurated on the fourth of March,
1SG1. On tlie 20th of Dectmler . prcviour,
South Carolina adopted her ordinance: of
secession. Georgia followed her example
two days afterwards, and on the 22d of De,
cember., ' Mississippi fccceded on the 9t!x
of January, Florida on the 11th, Louisiana
on the 26th, and Texas on the first of Feb,
ruary. Now, every one' oF these : States
not only -adopted an ordinance of secession
but by force seized every fortaraendl and
custom house which it could seize, with
the contents thereof. ,We find in our cx
changes the following list of hostile acts
committed by the rebels before the , inau
guration of tho President : "
- December 27, 1800 Capture of Fort!
Moultrie and Castle Pinckney by the South'
Carolina troop's." The revenue cutter Aiken?
was also captured. - '"' '-; '

ruary, almost a month before Mr.Lincoln5
was President. It was not until after the
rebels opened firo upon Fort Sumter thate
Mr. Lincoln called for volunteers. Yet,
in the face of these facts, so well known
that we are almost tempted to apologize
for referring, to them, these copperhead
orators presume to affirm, with ,unparal-
lejed contempt for the truth, that Sir.:
Lincoln began tie war, and very nccd-
lessly, too! If there be anything stranger

extraordinary letter - of , acceptance, the
New York Aeics, indignant at the tone of
that document, has made the following1
surprising statement : '.'Those planks of

more than two months before, tho Conven-

by the delegation from his State to act as
