RKXT OUVKUNUH OP NEWIIIBK,
la limes of trouble?, lecel contests assume
national Importance. A stilklog example o)
this may be found In tbo election for Governor
of Uw Slate or New York, now approaching
By tie force of circumstances, In part, and
partly from dellbereteckolce.H'vretloSeymont
stands to-day as Ihe opponent of onr war tot
the Union; and blseucceii wonld be a victory
to tbe Bcnih mere tban compensating for their
recent defeats at Antletam and Corinth. It ii
much to ba regretted that thli Issue haa betn
made at sttoh a time; although we have every
confidence that Gen. Wadsrorlh la a candidate
who will do no discredit to any enterprise upon
which hie name haa been embarked.
It Is not to be concealed, however, that the
contest will be one of intense partisan bitter
nets, aad that the Union candidate stands In
Imminent danger of receiving a ranch less ma
jority than should be famished by a Stale so
loyal as New York. The fierce fend betwein
the veteran regulars of the Republican party,
ltd by Tbnrlow Weed, and the swarming irrtg
nlar leTlea, led by Horace Greeley, msy oper
ate to tbe serious detriment of the candidate
who should receive equal support from both.
Gen. Wadawcrtb, moreover, never having been
a Democrat, he cannot hope to draw eft euch a
large defection from tbe war wing of that party
as would have naturally flacked round the
standard of Major General Dlx, who was the
choice, as candidate, of the Weed Seward Re
publicans. That Mr. Weed will strain every nerve for
General Wadsworth'a election, we, who know
him well, have sufficient confidence In his high
toned patriotism to believe. But that he can
allay local animosities and parly Jealousies
amongst his subordinates and small party man'
agers, Is something of which we have cot only
doubts, but fears. The zsoifb of the Greeley-
ltca will be tbe zero of the Weediles; and it
will be extremely difficult, indeed, to prevent
the local leaders cf the Republican Weed
Seward wing from making bargains with the
Democratic wire-pullers, locking to the re
election of Secretary Seward to the Senate,
when the vacancy occurs.
These dangers aro only mentioned on th-)
principle that it Is b:st to leck every threaten
log calamity In the face. Bsycnd any dcubt.
the whole recession sympathy of Ihe North will
be concentrated in favor of ireymour'e election
Money will be used without stint by tbe same
Interest which supports the WorU newspaper
as Ite organ; and union the moat earnest tier
tlona be made In General Wadsworth's behalf,
the cause of the Union stands more than a lair
chance of encountering a heavy blow and great
discouragement tn hia person. Let all the In-
raaee of our Government departments, there
fore, be placed liberally at hia disposal; and
let every truly loyal man espouse Wadsworth'a
cause as a part of tbe war for the Union It
wonld, perhaps, have been better had the direct
Issue lathis shape been avoided by the noml
nation cf General Dlx; but, having been made.
It only remains for us to meet It with every
energy at our command, and do all that can
by possibility be done to prevent n virdick by
ine great state of new iork in favor or Sey
mour's secession-sympathy and ' peace at any
price "policy.
Gin. Wadeworlh Is stroug in an unblemished
character, possessing force, integrity, courage,
generosiiy, and tbe sincerest devotion to Ike
great Interests of the Republic. He was liberal
to tbe Irish nation during the datk famine-
days of 1847 ; and on the breaking out of tbe
war, all that he had, even to his life, he frankly
cnereu to ine puDiic service, tial lioratlo
Seymour, pertooally, possesnes a character as
spotless, family claims as strong, experience
In party-management mnch more extensive,
and, on the whole, abilitres inllaitely more
keenly trained for encounters of tbls descrip
tion. Uis veto on tbe Maine Liquor Law has
secured fur him the vote ot an Interest lament
ably powerful in all State or local straggles ;
and It Is not to be denied tbat bis Interests are
In the hand i of political leaders, the ablist,
most experienced, and most unscrupulous in
tbe great political State of New Ywk nhlle
Wadsworih's cabiuet council threatens to be
compoted nf men like Horace Greeley, George
Opdyke, David Dudley Field, Curtis Noyts,
and such like man whu hate never been dis
tinguished lu politics as the shrewdest of man
agers. General WaisworLh should at once ap
ply himself tu draw closer the bonds of his al
liance nl.b the Weed wlog of tbe Republican
party thus allaying party animosities and
availing himself of that knowledge of party ma
chinery, which Can be obtained and used In no
other uy.

WHAT MALI. BR DUNK WITH TUB
NKQKUt
This aueeUon troubles a good many people
immensely) and Ihe precise t'atus of the col
ored population, alter this war haa ended, Is a
question that admits of different opinions. The
solution of the apparent difficulties surround
ing this question Is nol so perplexing now as
many people Imagine.
If the ruling race Is disposed to deal justly
by tbe Inferior auJsut.jil-inae of the people
of color, much of the seeming difficultien whlth
environ the subject will disappear at once, auJ
light Kill bie.k in upon Iho national vision,
tnd tho way to a perfect aJjiislmout of tbli
vexed question will be elucidated by that over
ruling Provldenoe wbonevtr falls a Common
wealth disposed lu act humanely, aoy mole
tban It falls to iustruct the individual mind to
saf and just conclusions. Some free States
have constitutional provisions which prohibit
free colored msn from comlog into their terri
tory; others have made laws to that effect. All
ibis Is absurd and wicked. These decrees are
Inhuman, antl-Uhrlstlan, diabolical The col
ored man, bcrn on the American soil, Is entitled
to all Ihe immunities and privileges of an Amer
ican citizen; and any attempt to deprive him
of this Indefeasible right Is a wicked perversion
of mere poa-er, which cannot be justified in tbe
light of Christianity nor of modern clvlllzs
tion. The policy of this Government always has
been, to invite the oppressed of all nations to
free homes and to all the privileges of cltlzjn
ship In our broad land; and Ibis Is right. Tbe
men of every nation come among us and find,
or should Cod a cordial greeting. This Is onr
boast Who that has a true American heart In
bis bosom, dispute or denies this right.
Now, why shonld wo deprive tho colored
Amerioan of this same privilege, which we
agree to accord to the people of other climes t
It is said that the colored man Is not a co
equal, that he is an Inferior, that there is a
strong prejudice against him, that the white la
borer will not consent to labor by tbe elds ol
the negro, that there are other and Incnperable
objections to admitting the negro to this equal
ity. All this we freely admit; bnt we. are equally
certain that tbe notion Is all wrong, that the
prejudice Is a wicked, unnatural, and unchris
tian prejudice, and can have no fonndatlon Id
justice, and should have cone In law end
ethics.
None of the people who oontend for tbese
prejudices and for the exclusion of the negro
from these rights, of locomotion and the free
choice to go where he pleases to earn bis
bread, ever ralte the slightest objection to tbe
negro's ccollju'ly to tbe whlto race, while he
Is tn slavery. The moment he Is free, then
they clamor for his removal. He smells bad;
he Is a nuisance; he should be removed trom
the country 1 1
Now all this Is shallow. It is mere pretext
It rests upon no just principle, and Is unworthy
a freo people.
It will bo ajid that we Ignore obvious die
tlucuons among men and races; that we are
lu favor of negro (quality; that we would in
troduce amalgamation, and all. the evils which
would eprlog from such an unnatural state ol
society. Wo do an such thing. We ask for no
other equality except equality of rights before
the law If we may endure the negro aa a alava
in this oonntry, we may and ahonld accord to
his his rights aa a freeman. Why not ?
Bat It Is said that the negro Is Ignorant, that
he will not work, and that infinite trouble will
grow ont of allowing btm his freedom
If he be ignorant, slavery made him S3, aud
bo can never be instructed while In the servl
tude tbat cbatuliem Imposes But be will not
work I All experience shows to tbe contrary.
Ho does work where he is free How is it
with Ihe emancipated slaves in this District
la not cash bettir than the loth
We do nut pndertake to say, of course, that
the negro is perfect, tbat none of them are
lex and thriftless, but we do undertake Lu
say, that In tbls partioular, all things consid
eicl, he is not unlike other people.
Tnere are no rules without exceptions. If
there are many lazy negroes, there era also
many lazy white men, bnt it does not follow
from facts like these, that either are to be en-
,iaTeii 0 tu. Ueannt.
A na(0 disposed to do right, to deai justly
by tbe negro, to act up lo tbe light of cbristl.
acily, and In accordance with the advancing
ciiillzaticn of tbe tlmta, will find no difficulty
In aicerlaining tho negro ihJ.r. Tbe question,
what shall we do with tbe negro, will answer
Itself.
GKIt ailAITS VICTORIES.
Glcious news from Geu. Grant's aimy Is
flashing along the tclegrapblo wires as we go
to press, tncouraglcg the hope that he has suc
ceeded In convening tbe repuke ut Corinth
into an astounding disaster to the rebel cause.
It is almost loa good lo be true, but Ihe coun
try has been taught to expect great things of
General Grant whenevir the opportunity of
achieving them Is presented. We reserve com
ment for further advices.

A locomutlve coe mile below the village gave

From these positions our men poured In so de
liberate and dsstructlve a fire, that the enemy
was driven from the field, the artillery gallop
Ing away, frllowed by the Infantry on aroal
through tbe forest In a northwesterly direction.
We then set fire to a train of upwards of twen
ty oars laden with oolton, sugar, molas.es, Ac,
took tbe papers from tho fort and telegraph
office, (deatrorlng tbe apparatus of tbe latter,)
and den Jeff.Tbompson'a sword, spurs, bridle,

showed tbe rebel force at tbat point to consist

She Postage BlMinp illfllenllrt
We have omitted to protest against the re
cent regulation of the Postmaster General, for
bidding the use, on lettets, of soiled stamps,
because it was so unreasonable and so flagrant
ly unjnst that we felt sure the order bad been
drawn up by some clerk unskilled in the use
ot language, and would he modified cr with
drawn as socn as its effect became known at the
Department But we bear nolhlrg of correc
tion, aud are forced to belUvetbat the Post
master General either does not yet understand
tho effect of the order, or Is rrgardless of the
Injustice be docs.
It is Ihe business ol Ihe Pest Office Depart
meat, by lis local-officers, to guard against
the nse of stamps which have already once
been used. To do this, they are at liberty
to deface there In any mannir they think
most effective. But to refuse to admit a
stamp because It has become soiled, Is to re
fuse to boner an obligation freely entered Into.
A merchant might as well decline lo recog
nize bis note cf hand because it had become
worn In Ihe holder's pocket or safe, or a
Judge declare a deed rr other document in
valid becaute it was musty, creased, or soiled.
As the recent crder of the Prilmaster Gen
eral is uudeibtnod and euftrccd, the Depart
ment is doing jntt Ihot,
The people Welti itilhormd, by an act of
Congress, lo use postage stamps for currency;
they eubuiitlid lo the inconvenience cheer
fully; they held the Government's note ot
band goal, be it for Ihree cents or for 1300.
Whv shonld one breach of the Government now
ttiru dcubt oi, wLat has become a part of
tho currency of the country by ao order
which is unreasonable and unjust 1 As soon
a i the new " posiage currency" is issued In
sufficient quantities, tbat will naturally replace
Ihe tumps. Till, then, the Post OOLe Depart
ment should devife a metbed lo guard Itself
against the frauds of bad men, without com
milling a wholesale Injustice on tbe commu
nlty. The recent order certainly protecls the
Dpirlmrnt; but a notice tbat no stamps
would berealler be received for poatsge on
Utters, would perhaps achieve that end more
effectually and would not be much mere nn.
reasonable.
We are happy to find Mr. Dole, Com

ment of the President t It was his duty to
form nnd to act upon this judgment. He haa

both sides. He knows all the facta upon
whics I conld form an opinion, and many
whlcl I do not, He must know better than
I liov far it will be a beb and how far a hiu

must know better than I can whether such a
meanre was necessary to arrest imprnding
and tarjortant Derir from abroad, would it
not be very foolish to suppose the judgment
of one who had only my means of judgment
likely tote wiser than that of one who has
the means which the President possesses ?
All ages nave aclcnowiedgea, ana none more
than this, that an army is but a useless mob
until discipline gives tq it order and unit; ;
and tbe essence of discipline is obedience bv all

stitute the army of the Union, and that somtv

must always be one vast difference between
our military order and unity and our civil or

rests on compulsion ana force, in civu bi

A short time may deteimrne wnemer ma

General Osdfh.1. No. 130. -Tbe geui-ial
commanding has forborne to notice In oideis
lb facta ami results ol the battle of Iuka, un
til he should have btfare him the leporU of ail
the commanders who participated In Hie ac
lion.
Brothers in arms: You msy well be proud
of tbo battle of Iuka. On tbe 18th you COL
ceBiruted at Jacinto; on the 19th you marched
twenty miles, driving In the rebel outposts for
tho last tight; reached the front of Price's
aimy, advantogeously posted la unknown
woeds, and opened tbe action by four p. m
On the narrow front, Intersected by ravines and
covired with dense undergrowth, with a siogle
battery, Hamilton's division went Into action
against the eomblned rebel boats. On that
uutqaal ground, which permitted Ihe enemy to
outnumber tbem tnree lo one, iney lougnt a
glorious battle, mowing down the rebel bordsa
until, nleht closlnz In. ther rested on their
arms on tbe battle-ground, Irom which the
enemy retired during the night, leaving us
masters oi toe neia.
The general commanding bears cheerful
testimonv to the fiery alacrity with which the
troops of Stanley's division moved up, cheering,
to support, when called for, tha third division,
and took their places to give them an oppor
tunity to repienisn insir ammunition; ana to
the-msgnlfloent fighting of tbe 11th Missouri,
and the gallant Mower. To all Ihe reulmente
who participated In the fight be presents con-
Satuiatlons on their bravery and good conduct,
e deems It an especial duty to slgnalixe the
asm Indiana, wnicb, posted on tne nil, neid
lis ground nntll the brave Eddy fell, and a
whole brigade of Texans came In through a
ravine on the little band, and even then only
yielded a hundred yards until relieved.
Tbe Sixteenth Iowa, amid the roar cf battle,
the rush of wounded artillery hones, tbe
charges of a rebel brigade, and a storm ol
grape, canister, ana mutxeiry, stooa mo a
rock, holding tbe centre, while the glorious
nun lowa, unacr me nrave ana aisunguisnea
Mathles. sustained bv Boomer with cart of his
noble little Twenty-elxth Missonrl, bore the
thrice repeated charges and cross fires of the
rebel ten ana centre wttn a valor ana deter
mination seldom equalled, never excelled, by
the most veteran soldiery. Tbe Tenth Iowa,
under Colonel Perczel, deserves honorable
mention for covering our left flank from the
asaault of tbe Texas Legion. Sands' Eleventh
Ohio battery, under Lieutenant Seurs, was
served with uneanalied bravery, undor cir
cumstances of danger and exposure such ss
rarely, peihaps never, felt to tha lot ot a slot
gle battery during tne war. ine inirtj-ninu.
Ohio and Forty-seventh Illinois, who went In
to position at the close of tho fight, and held It
during the night, deaerve honorable mention
for the spirit ihey displayed In tbe perform
ance of their duty.
The general commanding regrets that he
must mention the conduct of tbe Seventeenth
Iowa, whose disgraceful stampeding forms a
meiancooiy exception to tne-gtnerai goou
oourage of the troops. He doubts hot that
there are mtny good officeia and men lu that
regiment, whose cbeok born wttn tbame and
Indignation at the part tbe regiment acted, and
he Icoka to Iheru aud to all Its members, on ILh
first opportunity, by cnuepiouous gallantry, to
wipe out tbe stain on their fasr name.
To the brave and gallant Hamilton, wbo
formed and maintained his divlslou under the
galling fire from the rebel front, having his
horse shot tinder bira In the action; to tho vt
eran aa.l hrolc Halllvan, young lu years, bm
old In Until: Col. Sanborn, oommandlnc the
leading brigade la Us maiden battle; Brigadier
Geuersl D. 8. Stanley, Indefatigable soldier,
ably aiding tbe advance division; to their ataff
officers, as wen as to tne regiments wuicu nave
been mentioned io this order, tbe general com
mandlng tenders individually bis hearlfelt
tbaiks and congratulations, inelr gallantry
aLd good couduct command bis respect, and
has added a page lo tbe claims tbey bav. on
the gratitude ot it great people now struggling
to maintain national freedom and Integrity
against an uuballoived war in favor of caste
and despotism.
To Colonel Mlzner, chief of tbe cavalry divi
sion, and to tbe officers and men of his com
maud, the general commanding here publicly
t-ndera his acknowledgments. For courage,
efficiency, and for iucissaut and successful
combats, brt does Lot believe they bavo any
euprluis In our advance on Iuka, anil dol
ing tue action, iney aoiypenornicaincir au'-y.
Col. Hatch font bt and whirried tho rtbeis
at Peyton'e Mills on the 19th, pursued tbe re
treating rebel columu ou the 20ih, harassed
their rear, and captured a large number of
arms. Duriog tbe action five privates of tha
Third Michigan cavalry, beyond our extreme
right, opened fire, captured a rebel stand of
colors, a captain and lieutenant, rent In Ihe
colors that night, alone held their prisoners
during Ihe night, and brought them in next
morning.
The unexpec,iea accident wnicn alone pre
vented us Irom cutting off tbe retreat, and
capturing Price and his whole army, only
shows how much success depends on film In
whose bands are the accidents as well as the
laws of life.

lorca ue won go oiiuruay at oarooxte, sixteen
miles Irom Newtonla. where a rebel force of
10,000 strong was collected. He expected to
reach there to-day, and If tbe rebels do not
vacate tve place, we may expect to bear Im
mediately o( a battle. No apprehensions ate
entertained as to the result, Scbofield'e army
being superior to that of ihe enemy, and In
excellent fighting trim. The only thing feared
Is that the rebels won't fight.
