Tt telegraphic cews apf-irs favorable to the
FeJeral t-aus, arid auch has torn it, character
since the comraencetsent of General GaaaT
campaign in Virginia. HichmonJ mar fill in a
bort time as predicted, tut judpiofc by rat-vent

tban dt which ha occurred during the war It
Gcr.cn! Gkaxt with an arnj more powerful thin
any which has taken the field unable to over
come Lir. sixty railed from the tifc of his u;v-
pliea. anJ if he couiJ gain do decisive reuli af
ter eight day hard fighting, it in not to be eipec
tevl th.it the enemy will te more easily overcome
when be U at the 1 of hi supplier and within
the cr.trcnchmtr.tii of the rthel Capital.
In aaying this we do not intend to be uisdcr
tool as predicting the defeat of Giant, tut
only to date, what every icn-ible1 mm ebuuli
readily appreciate, tint the capture of Ilichrnom
will require not only time, but a eacrificf o
' Mool feirful to contemplate.
The telegraphic news, even Irota f.icia
tource, cii.no: le relied upon. The countrj
baa been deceived by the reports cf Mr. Stantox
from the Lfi&ning, iu regard to the Virginia
campaign. Tbia deception may be policy, and it
may be justified by the art of war, but we believe
it is always better that the people should ila;n
know the truth. We believe in the old a-lae
that "honesty is the bet policy." The war to
day would present a far different ar ect if the
people had been advised of the true condition o
affair a it progressed.
That the reader may be ab!e .o understand th
value of telegraphic information, we present th
following digest of the report of Mr. Stanton
prepared by a cotemporary, from the fcth to the
22d of May:
1. Ma? 'Jth, he tcicrtpiieJ, "Grant s di
patches are not fully deciphered yet, but he is
'on to Hichmond. 1 he r ehr I are in full retro
for Richmond on the direct road Our he id
quarters at noon ye-teid.y were twenty rnile
south of the battle held.
Now there is not a word of truth in any part
of it. Lee W4.a not in retro it. but having forc ed
Urant to "change hi. base, nut moving to uc
commodate hi nuelf to ii r.ew itu itioii Grant
was not "on to Richmond." and hi headquarter?
ters were not "tweuty mile south of the battle
Eeld. nor thre milen.
2. Oa the lUth. Stanton telegraphed in t)
name of lt. F. Mutier, th;tt"(ien. 1). II. Hill lu
been whiprxjd at Petersburg, that Ileiure'.ird
was cut oft below that city, and that (J rant wrnil
not be troubled with anv further reinforcement
to Lee from Ileauregard's force-!."
Now it la very well known that Untier neve
whipped anybody (except in New Orleans) and
never cut the direct line ot railroad Letwwn
Uichmoud and Petersburg, und that "Ueatire-
gard'a forces" passed tip to the hitter place with
out interruption, alter Itutler i nIvutice.
3. ÜQ the IGth, Slsutoti telegraphed tint Hut-
ler hud been attacked by the rebel.', but had re
. puNed alt assaults, aril then "leisurely retired to
hU Intrcnchmcnti." Now, it w:u well known to
Stanton that Itutler had been driven buck in cod
fusion to Hermudi Hundred, t-ix r eight inilr
and with a lo4 of from II. to 1,000 in killed
wounded and prisoner. There he hud been ever
since, in what ia nearly equivalent to it utate o
I. Stanton telegraphed that Sheridan h m.de
s grand raid around Lcc'tt rear, done immense
damage, tftken ttie tiri-t line of entieiu-hiiit-tit at
HichmonJ, and joined Itutler with a lo-n of but
a lew hones and only .'130 men. It now trans
pired that the damage done by Sheridan was re
paired within forty-eight hours, and that he l"t
large number of horses and neatly 1,0110 men
killed, wounded and missing.
5. On the l-'Ui. St uiton telegraphed a "great
victory," thouands of prisoner, forty guns
tftkcu, Lee in full rettrat, and Grunt in hot pur
suit. The whole country now known that no
victory was gained at that time, tint, with the
exception of lhncock's brilliant dish at the
opening of the battle, the whole was a series of
of bloody repulses all day, und that Lee re
mained seven days iu the very fpot whoie tin?
battle was fought; that on the 17th he ret. til.-ed a
general attack upon his line, an on the I-tli sent
a portion of his troops within three-quarters of
mile of (J rant's headquarters.
C. On the '2l Stanton telegraphed that on the
SOth Grunt h id commenced un important ll inking
"movement for the purpose of compelling L'o
to evacuate hin position,' und ho .-pet i iliv e:i-
joined upon all newspapers, wen in the f ir Wet.
not to publish anything in relation to the move
. tnent, lest Lee, who was supposed to be within
easy muket shot of (traut, idiould get wind oj'
it from Detroit or Chicago.
It now turns out that Le moved t i r -1 ai d
without the knowledge of Grant, who rl mjdy
lollowed. Grunt, fir nhvinus reasons, again
changed his base from Fredericksburg to I'oit
Koyal, a point on the U ppahaiinock, HO lal'e
east, not $outh. of where he crossed the Ii ipid an.
Card from itlr. Kclciiaui.

We observe some indications of the prevalence
of copperhe idism in ditinguihed Hepublican
fiuartets. For example:
"The Supreme Court of Vermont has declared
the soldiers' voting bill of that State uncon-ttu
tinnal.so far as i elates to the election of State
Air in. Senator Hale, of New Hampshire, in
Picaking in the Senate, the other day, o the ef
fort in Congress to annihilate the State hank,
said the object would be more easily understood
if the measure were put in this form:
"And bo it further enacted, That ull those in-
ptrumcnts heretofore known ns State Constitu
tion be und they nre hereby aboli-hed."
And again, Senator Doolittle, of Wi.consin,
on the name occasion, siid:
"I do not vield to my honorable- friend from
New Hampshire in my pincere respect as well a
my deep and ecltlcd conviction in the npec ity
of this Oovernrnent, hs well ns the State (ov-
emments themselves, maintaining, preserving,
ami defending all the rights of the States uader
the ConMituiion of the United States. 1 believe
in Statt rights, air; that they are expressly men
tioned, reserved, protected, nnd defended iu the
Con-titution itself, nnd ns they are reserved by
our Constitution, protected, and defended, I be
lieve in those rihis, and as a citizen of the
United States, and us citizen of the State, I feel
bound to respect und to defend them.''
Now all this is copperhe idism iu its m )t ma
lignant form Neither VuIIandichtm, nor Pow
ell, nor Fernando Wood has ever breathed wore
coppet headism. Can it he possible that the Su
preme Court of Vermont, und Senator Hale of
New llatnphire, und Senator Doolittle of Wis
consin, are turning coo:crhcads?

The Kvansville .Journal, edked by .some fellow
who has neither decency or ben-p, in u late num
ber thus refers to its political opponents :
We tell jmi, Copperheads, that this game of
prolVvMiig iovaltv and acting treason is nbuut
pl.ivi' l out. When you praise our brave soldiers,
and in the same breath accu-c them of stealing
jewelry and robbing families, you are under
stood. In response; to the foregoing we present the
following rebuke of the able und eloquent army
conc.Hhdf t.t of the Cincinnati Commercial.
Referring to the movements of the Federal army
in Georgia, under Gen. Siiiuman and the capture
of Ihdton, he remarks :
It is tiiply di-m mtled, and were it not for the
cIqi.os of fiies that hover over the bountiful

Mr. McMullen inquired whether the subject of
the resolutions was not a proper one for the n

Mr. Leach siid he desired it to be discussed in

Mr. Conrad rose to n point of onler. A rule

mend them to the gravest considerations ol the
body. They were not his views only, but the
views of hi constituent-, and of u good portion
of the people of Nortli Carolina.
Mr. A. H. (tarland. of Aikansas. hoped the
gentleman would not pioceed until the Chair
had settled the oint of order that had been
Mr. Foote renewed his motion to refer the res

Mr. McMullen moved to lav the revolutions on

Mr. Marphall, of Kentucky, ro-o to point of
order. The gentleman from North Carolina (Mr.
Leach) had the floor, and he had not vieldcd it.
The gentleman from Kentucky (Mr. McMullen)
was usurping the floor.
Mr. Foote didn't want to cut oft' any remarks
the gentleman from North Carolina might have
to make in pupport of his resolutions.
Mr. Leach said the presentment of the re-olu-
tions was a dutv he owed to himself and hist con
stituents. If the House didn't like the resolu
tions, it can di-pose of Lhem in any manner that
it sees proper. All he asked was a full and im
partial hearing; that accorded him and his reso
lutions, he would be satisfied.
Mr. McMullen withdtew his motion, and Mr.
HeisLell, of Tennessee, renewed h:s the call for
the ayes and nays upon laying the resolutions on

The yeas and nays weit taken and the resolu

Alter a phort interval, Mr. Conrad, of Louisi
ana, rose lo a personal explanation, lie had
read over the poire resolutions uhmitted bv the
gentleman from North Carolina (Mr. Leach,)
and he found that they look to separate Stale
action in the prosecution of peace Taking that
view of them, he could not give them his coun
tenance nor upport. He asked leive to change
his vote on the motion to lay them upon the

Mr. J. T. Leach said he held iu his hand the

Mr. Swan, of Tinnessce, asked and obtained
leave to change his vote on the motion wo lay the

Mr. Head, of Kentucky, move! to reconsiüer
the vote by which the resolutions were disposed

Mr. Marshall, of Kentucky, was for treating
the resolutions of the gentlemm from North
Cuoiina with he-coming respect. They did not
represent his own views, more than the views f
his Congressional distiict. He thinks they ure

The Nashua Telegraph has letters from on

TIic Fremont Convention
Corn'sjM.niJrnce f t h Cincinnati Kcquirer.
Ci.LVtLAM), June 1, lbU-1.
The Fremont, Convention has met and finished
its deliberations, all within a single day. Iu spite
of the abuse heaped 01 advince id an the signers
of the "call,1' and the bandying of ejiiihets on
thoe w ho dared to refuse homage to "Old Abe,
the Radicals of the Republican party came to
get her and resolved to cut looc from the cor
ruptions and assumptions of the present Admin
The reporter of the Associated Press was on

reaches tou the press throughout the land will
have published the essential particulars of this
grand "tire iu the rear" upon Mioddy Um and im
With the platform, in part, there will, of
course, bo the widest disagreement 011 the part of
ttie Democrats, but theic are some planks in it
that exhibit the fact that there are some among
the opponents of Democracy who are not vet
lost to the doctunes of personal rights. 1 he re
cognition of the liberty of tho press, and the
preservation of the writ of hubra$ corpus, is em
phatically asserted by tins Convention, and the
Monroe docttme is boldly reathrmed.
A few punv efforts, wcie put forth iu the direc
tion of po-t poning nominations by some who had
made their way into the Convention; but the
great body of the delegates, would listen to no
other propositions than the immediate nomina
tion ot rremont, and a war utoti what thev
deemed the weak, uncertain, ambitious, and cor
rupt designs and acts of Lincoln and hi vast
hoideol retainer and suppliants Johu C. rre

The post ollice organ hire, the Loader, expen
ded all its powers in attempts to ridicule this
movement, but I pi edict that they will find it not

if not the war itself, besides the Peace JJemocra
cv. Wholesale slaughter, to gratify personal
ambition, or fill the purses of cormorants and
vampires, mav not always continue, and it is mi
encouraging feature in affairs to know that the
jocular President is likely to meet with some
thing at the hands of old supporters which w ill
hardly induce to a joke or anecdote from his "Joe
Miller Majesty.'
The Tariff.
We received from Washington by telegraph.
ami publishe! a few days since, a yuopsis of the
new I anii hill proposed to the House of Kepre
sentatives by the Committee of Wat s and Means,
read twice and ordeied to be printed. In com
mon with others of our fellow citizens we have
waited somewhat anxiously for the text of this
document, and as the extraordinary omissions in
the synopsis were attrihu'ed to telegraphic muti
lations, we hoped for home explanation of
them when the ohVial report shoul i be received
We regtet to siv th it the tainted copy of the bill
furuihes no solution of the mysterv. The same
significant omisions occur iu this, as in the sy nop
sis; and the reader who is familiar with the sub
jectwiil find his wonder increasing without any
reaction fiom the title to the conclusion.
It appears lo have been prepared entirely in
the interest of a clique of manufacturers anl
speculators, and their hand can be traced iu it
throughout all its provisions. It extends tho pe
riod during which the extra Ü0 per cent, imposed
lor sixty dais upon all imports shall be collected.
up to the dUth of June: but there it leaves
large variety of imported products, making no
provision for them except as they may fall back
under the old schedules of former tarilis.
We see no allusion to coffee, spices, most vari
eties of fruits, many articles of drugs, salt, and
other merchandi.-e which it was thought would
bear a verv high tariff, and which will be left on
the 1st of July if this bill is adopted, to be ad
mitted at a far lower rate than the one now col
lected, as the 50 per cent, limit then expires
This cannot be accidental, as many other articles
now m. iue in this country, or held by .speculators
on this si le of the ocean are taxed enormously
on future importations.
As an illustration of the spirit which hu pre
vailed in the composition of this remarkable
proposition, take the single article of pilm'.eif
Jais. e select tins because there can be no
pretense that either revenue or industry is iu any
way connected with the proposed legislation, and
it is therelore a fair criterion by which to jude
of the who. e prouuettou. The average yearly
sales ot ttiis article prior to 1?CJ, were about
3,(100 ca?es of 500 each, the cost iu China being
thiee quarters of a cent to one cent per fan. In
addition, there were ohl annually from two to
three hundred cases' of the better qualities, cost
ing from two to twelve cents each. In l!"59,
freights for bulky articles ruled very low, and
the trade be:n stimulated from other causes,
over 30,tai0 case of the fans, or nearly ten v ears'
supply, were impottel and left ou the market.
The receipts since have averaged less than 1.000
per annum, anU.i the Southern demand has been
partially cut off, a hrge part of this enormous
supply is still undistributed. In truth, about
15,000 case of the importation of 1 SJ5J are still
unbroken, and held for CO lis-11 raption by a very
few dealers arid peculators iu this city and Bos
ton. Now, a dutv of two cents each is to be
levied on fre.-h importations, which, with the dis
crimination against foreign vessels, and gold at
J l per cent, premium, will make a nice little pro
tection for the holders equal to four cents for
each fan! We certainly have a three years' fup
ply on hand, and Con jrc'i is called on or special
legislation to aid the holders in such a petty
Our reader city thihk that this is a small
matter in itself, d1 we quite agree with them;
but it is a straw which hows the way the wind
of favor is blowing-, s.nd may be taken as an in
dex to the whole report. We do not know that
the commi'tee who have prepirel this bill are
aware of the influences unJer which they have
acted; but it would seem as if the minute atten
tioti they have given to certain details, must
hive sugge-ted to them the striking omission of
vtry important general interests, and that this
feature ot the project could not have been acta-,
dental. It remains ta be seen how this plan will
be received by the majority of the House when it
sbuli come up for discussion. We have had an
intimation that it is to be pushed throug by unu
sual pressure, and without the usual latitude of
debate: but such a purpose may be easilr de-
featedjf the conservative members of the Hoj-e
will be true to their constituents.
