Saturday .Morning, Oct, *25, 18G*2. Facts for the People. It is well in these critical times, when a haughty aristocracy has attempted the sub version of our Government, and failing in that, seeks by force of arms to divide our ter ritory, and destroy our nationality, that we should study well the lessons of the past, as well as the present, in regard to the history and geography of our country. ora oriodt. In the beginning the people emigrated to these shores; hut not the monarchy, the aris tocracy, the hierarchy. Wilderness homes, log cabins, conflicts with savage beasts, and witli savage men. as well as with those mighty for ces ol nature which were to be met and con quered, lmd no charms for these gentry; and so, thank God, we got rid of them by simply leaving them behind. Thus this scion ol the old Anglo Saxon stock, translated in the soil of the New World, was left to grow w ithout the burden of th.se parasites. Society w ith us, with simply the Bible, the habeas corpus, the right of trial by jury, the great principles of Magna Cliarta, the constitutional lights of Englishmen, as Anally settled by the Revolu tion of 1088, was left to grow, untratnineled by the barbarous usages of pagan times—laws which had been made for the few, and not for the many—and the ett'ete politics of the Old World. We were left free to choose all that was good in lands from which we catne. and to discard all that was base and worthless.— Hence our growth in population, in arts, in arms, in civilization, and in religion has been without precedent. Two and a half centuries ago, when the pow er of old Spain hud culminated, ire had no ex istence at all. Two centuries ago, when the glory of France and the power of the Bour bons were at their zenith, our infant nation consisted of but a few feeble settlements, ex tending from the Piscataquis to the James River, scarcely extending thirty miles inland, except upon the navigable waters, and these were struggling with numerous and poweriul savage tribes, even for tln-ir existence. A cen tury later, even, they extended only from the Kennebec to the Altatnahs, and were not only contending with the savages, hut also with the French and .Spanish, tiir their territory, their right to the fisheries, and for their lives. Ol’B TERRITORY—WHAT IT HAS COST US. The intelligent reader will have a good map of the United States before him, as he reads, and a reference to it will illustrate the follow ing geographical facts with the greatest clear ness and force. The statistics are authentic, and tell their own story. At the time of the Declaration of our Inde pendence, when we boldly stood tip against the most powerful nation in Europe for the achievement of a separate and distinct nation ality, we hardly exceeded 2.500,000. And at the close of the war of the Revolution, sev en years later, our population was comprised in thirteen feeble .Stales, lmt recently depend ent colonies, almost wholly confined to the eastern slope of fie Alleghunies, hardly amounting to 3,0()0,oo>—not so many as New England, or the single State of New York now contains, and far inferior in wealth and re sources, without a federal government, without an army, without a navy, without treaties w ith foreign powers, and without a national treas ury ; while we w ere oppressed with a national debt of $73,000,000. which would be more than equal to $1,000,000,000 now. !>..* .. .i . I*...!,..... 1 .. ... l... ». . . formed; profitable treaties with foreign na tions have been made; our army and navy have lieen created; a treasury has been filled : the original debt and another besides have long since been paid with ease: our popula tion, pouring over the tops of the mountains, as with the tread of an earthquake, has trav eled westward at the rate of seventeen miles a year; has already Hlled'top the eastern portion of the valley of the Mississippi, and crossing the “father of waters,” lias founded large and flourishing states upon its western banks,some of which are larger in area than all England, and are bigger even than France. And still the mighty tide of human life rolls on resistless toward tile setting sun, founding powerful states upon the distant shores of tlie Pacific, a land, which, even within the memory of man, was terra incognito. In 1803. at an expense of $15,000,000, we purchased Louisiana ol France, w hich gave us the entire possession of the valley of the Miss issippi, the largest ami most fruitful on tile face of the globe, which extends north and south through nearly the entire temperate zone, and whielt gives us access to the Gulf of Mexico in that direction. In 1810, for $5,000,000, we al so purchased the peninsula of Florida of Spain, which comprises 58,000 square miles—more than is contained in all England and Wales. This not only completes the integrity of our territory in that direction, liut also brings us witliin a day's sail of Cuba, the Queen of the Antilles. Iu 1845 we annexed Texas, W'ith an immense and fertile area of 225,000 square miles, lieing almost as large as France and Spain, and capa ble of supporting a larger population, lit 1848, three years later, we pushed our territory to tlie Rio Grande, where we nearly touch the northern tropic, and, by joint conquest and purchase, secured the immense territories of New Mexico and Upper California, by which we extended our posessions on the Pacific from latitude 32 deg. to 45 deg. north, where we meet the dominion of Queen Victoria A portion of this teritorv is already erected into the large and flourishing state of Califor nia, making, when admitted, the thirty-first of the Republic, thus transposing the figures with which we began our national existence. This state alone contains 105/100 square miles, near ly as large as all Great Britain, and far superi or in mineral, agricultural, and commercial resources. '1 ids state, though but ten year old, is already dotted with numerous ami wealthy commercial cities, whose streets and through fares are thronged with an active, intelligent, and enterprising polyglot population, whose harbors are tilled with the fleets of the mer chantmen of all nations, and which have ex ported gold to the amount of $50,000.000 per annum; while flourishing schools, colleges, ami churches are springing up in all directions to hless the land with their regenerating pow er. This same rich and beautiful land, with the same soil, the same climate, the same produc tions, and »ilh similar commercial facilities, was in the hands of Spain and Mexico for one hundred and ten years. Bat none ot these great riches were developed till it fell into the hands of the United States. Our claim to the immense ami fertile terri tory of Oregon, containing about 350,000 square miles, and almost equally as rich in agricultural, mineral, and commercial advan tages as ( aliforuia itself, is founded upon the right of discovery; Cupt. Gray, in the ship Columbia, of Boston, having sailed into the Pacific in 1783 on a voyage to the north-west coast, ami discovered the mouth of the great river of the west, flowing toward the setting sun, to which he gave the name of his little ship. At the time of the formation of our govern ment, in 1780, our settled territory included but little more than 8U>,000 square miles, ami was mostly confined to the eastern slope of tlie Alleghanies. It now stretches across the entire continent, from one ocean to the other, with an area ol 20 deg. on the Atlantic coast, of 10 deg. on the Pacific, and 50 deg. of long, and having 3.314.000 square miles; a national domain nearly as large as all Europe, witli her fifty-nine distinct states and governments, and far richer in soil, climate, and productions and commercial facilities, and more capable of supporting a large and prosperous population. This territory produces all the grasses, cere als. ami fruits of tile temperate regions, to gether with the rice, cotton, tobacco, and su gar. as well as some of the fruits of more sun ny dimes; and even tlie grape here flourishes in great perfection. It also affords all kinds of stone, both lor building and artistic purpos es; all the useful kinds of timber, including some not found at all in other countries. For instance, thirty species of the oak, among which is the live oak, so superior for ship building to all other kinds. It also produces iron, lead, copper, silver, and gold, above all other countries: while, what is far more im r.Ult iMMMUt It IlllUtll limit,affording enough fuel to last us us thous ands of years, while Pennsylvania alone will afford oil to match. All tlie natural features of our great country are also on the grandest and most magnificent scale, as though Divine Providence intended it for the theatre of the most stupendous events in the world's history, and which we most devoutly believe to be the fact. We are a great country and a great people. A natio ♦sjith half the continent in its pocket, and the best half of it too. We can afford to let tlie aristocracy of this little island across the water abuse us for a time. H'e con lire without them but they cannot lire without ug. And further, we cannot forget at tills time what this territory has co-t us. Virginia, North and South Carolina, and Georgia were conquered, at a vast expense of treasure and blood, from the British in tlie Devolution. Of 231,000 tuen employed in the Continental ar my, these States furnished but 43,000, which being utterly inadequate to their own defense, the North w as compelled to supply tlie de flcieucy, or to see them still remain colonies of Great Britain, as a majority of three of these states were willing to lie. And lienee a portion of the war debt of 1791, of $!l3,Ooo.OOO. Florida, Louisiana, and Texas have cost tlie nation, for purchase money, interest on tlie same, payment of debt, iuiileimrty,boundaries, removal of Indians, Seminole and Mexican w ars, w ith pensions arising out of them, tlie sixty years past,about,Dil8,000,0(0 besides val uable lives. And to ail this is to be added w hat it lias cost us for the extinguishment of the Indian tribes, and for their removal in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and the two Carolinas; and to which is to be fur ther added tile $8,000,000 of surplus revenue disbursed to tlie seceded States in 1830. Hence one answer to tlie question, "Wlmt do you waul tlie South for?" is, we have bought it and paid for it, and it is ours. There can be no such word as “separation” in our national vocabulary. The patriotism of our people will not allow designing dema gogues, and disappointed and discomfited politicians, acting with Southern or Northern secessionists, to sever tis in twain or change the original spirit and purpose of our Govern ment. It cannot, it must not he so. Let the friends of the Union and a Constitutional Gov ernment stand tlrm, and all w ill lie well. Experience of n Prisoner. The following letter is from a Clerk in Gen. Dope's Department, who was tal en prisoner by tlie rebels in tlie raid of Gen. Stuart: Washjxgtox, I). C., Oct. 8, 1802. As you w ill recollect tlie night of the 22<lof August was a very dark and rainy one, one couldn't see Ids hand four inches from his eyes except when it lightened. 1 was tired and hungry, and as our cook had not come up when night eame, two of its got up a tent, and 1 turned in at dark. Wet, tired and hungry, 1 fortunately did'ut take off anything, but threw myself down just a_s I was, and in a moment was fast asleep. I had slept as it turned out, about three hours, when 1 wa* awakened by an aw ful yelling (I can't describe tlie noise, it w as so different from anything I ever heard,) and .tin1 reports of*pistols very near me. 1 got to tlie door of the tent, when some one says, tlie rebels abe on us. I could'rit get it through my brain as 1 was’ut more than half awake, but ‘...»II noo CIVUIG UI mu unu liu.ll Ull il spree, for I could'nt imagine that tlic rebels could get at us, when we were fifteen miles in the rear of our army; but anyhow I got my knapsack and put my blankets in it and my rubber blanket on, and started out for the wa gons to see what was up. Just then the reb els rode through the woods again, hollowing at the top of their voices, and shooting right and left and through all of the tents as they saw them as the lightning flashed. I went to the wagons, and finding no one there, started back and had gone about half way to my tent, when three or four shots were fired at me, and some half dozen surrounded me, and ordering the “ d—d Yankee son of a — ” to surrender, throw down my arms, Ac. I saw there was no use trying to do anything and was taken back into the woods to where Brig. Gen. Stu art was, but before reaching Gen. Stuart, one of the men ordered the d — d Yankee son,— ” A-e., to hand him my rubber. It was raining hard, and I had’nt anything to keep the rain oil' but that; yet I had to give it.up. After reaching Gen. Stuart, he of course ask ed me a great many questions, but I don’t think he got much information out of me; fi nally he told one of the men to let me have one of the captured horses, as 1 didn’t look very well. I remained near Gen. Stuart from about 11 o'clock P. M., Friday, until about 5 o'clock A. M., Saturday, when the Cavalry took up its liue of march for Warrenton. 1 didn't see any other prisoners that night or morning, and I supposed that I was the only one captured. They promised that if I would behave myself, I should be parolled at War renton that day. We reached Warrenton about 7 o’clock, A. M. The day was beautiful. The whole town turned out to meet the rebels. I saw more women that morning, twice over, than I ever saw in W. before, though I had been there two or three times. They then took me down towards the Springs, and on the road I found that they had taken some 300 of our men. Well, we all marched to the Springs, 7 miles, and during the night ride, the rebels stole my blankets, knapsack, over-coat and shawl. We readied the Springs about noon, and shortly after it commenced raining very hard, and then I was almost sick, without any coveriug, neither had I got anything to eat. They kept us in an open field, about 1 mile from the crossing of the Rappahannock. I saw Gens. Lee and Jackson as we crossed the bridge. A little before dark that night, we had just got as comfortable as circumstances would permit, w hen over came a shell close by us. The rebels said it was the “Flying Dutch man,"’ (Gen. Sigel) so they started us off in a great hurry, and marched us about 0 miles, and put us iu the woods for the night. We stayed there three days, and during all this the infantry men were passing, and all this time we had no rations given us. I tell you I was nearly starved. Finally, on the fourth day about uoou, we started off for Culpepper. I had taken cold, and every limb was stiff and I could hardly walk. We walked until long af ter dark, and got within about a mile of C. be fore we halted for the night, (a distance of 23 miles) nothing to eat here ami no prosppet of getting anything, so the guard said, until we got to the Rapidan river, where perhaps we might, they said, come across their brigade teams, and then we could get a little. You cant imagiue how hungry I was. I asked eve ry one I met for a mouthful and offered a gold dollar for a piece of bread, but couldn't get it. The next morning at daylight we were off Spain I was verv stiff and sore thr. el-in u-•>c all offof my feet,and l couldn’t get my boots off, and could but just move along, I would walk on my toes awhile and then on my heels, but every step seemed as though it would be my last, and I thought I must lie down, but I knew that if I did, the guard would not hesi tate to boyonet me, so I kept up, and finally about 3 o’clock, we reached the Rapidau. The river was quite high, ami the bridges all gone, so we had to ford it,. The current was so rap id, that I should certainly have drowned, had not a great stout fellow almost carried me across. I was very weak and faint and sore that I was ready to lie down, and to crown ail of my troubles, the blisters on my feet burst in the water, and the sand worked into the sore, and every step I took was mis ery. Oh! you can’t imagine how I suffered, and there were many others even worse off than I, were it possible. We went about a mile from the river, and there we got some thing to eat, for the first time since our advent into seccssia! We got a good sized piece of old maggoty bacon, and five hard crackers. I had never eaten bacon before, for I could nev er eat fat meat, but never in my life did l ta«te of anything so good as that bacon and crackers. I still had my boots on,I'orl couldn’t get them off, and they were filled with water, and we couldn't get any wood to build fires with, and the night was bitter cold. I couldn’t walk to keep warm, and therefore I nearly froze. The next morning we took the cars for Gordousville. We had rather dirty cattle cars, yet it was a decided improvement on walking, 1 assure you. We readied Gordousville about noon, and were inarched up to the Provost Marshall’s office, where our names, State and Regiment were taken, and we were marched off about a mile, into the woods, were we again received rations, and remained for two days, when we once more took the cars, and were off for Richmond, which interesting berg we reached at 3 or 4 o’elock, P. M., and were marched about the town for the amusement of the officers and men, who had us in charge, and to exhibit the wild Yanks of the North to the fair ladies of the interesting capitol of the Southern Confederacy. And finally we brought up at that interesting hole, Libby Prison Warehouse. Five hundred and over were put in one room. The windows were all out, but if any one looked out, without any waver ing the guard shot at him. We got some bread, and a small quantity of moat tuts ntglit, ami the next morning we were all drawn up, and the soldiers separated from civilians, (sutlers, drivers, <fec.,) and the soldiers were then marched over to Belle Isle, about two and a half miles from the prison, but directly opposite the city, where we found some 6000 of Yanks, about the hardest looking set you ever could imagine could eri.it. Ev ery one was filthy, and covered with vermin; the sand was filled with them; notone single person, no matter how neat he was, was ex empt; and those who w*ere not particuior were perfectly covered; why, one couldn’t set down without getting some on him. There were over 0,000 in a space of less than two acres; you can perhaps imagine what a crowd there was. Our rations were at 10 o'clock A. M. We got 1-4of a small loaf of bread; once in three days 2 oz. of fresh boiled beef; the other two days 2-:I of a pint of what was called beau soup, but we never discovered any beans therein; but the top was covered with those black bugs which you’ll always find in old peas and beans. There was no salt >n the soup or bread, nor on the meat, and the meat was so old that it would spoil belore 12 M. Sometimes at night we got another 1-4 loaf of bread, but this was only otice in a white. Hundreds actually died for the want of bread. Scarcely a morning but 15 or Id were found dead about camp, caused by lack of food, and exposure. Matty others died during the days. Hundreds had the scurvy, and we had uo doc tor nor medicines. 1 was sick almost all the time I was there, but managed to keep up.

CLEMS' SUMMER CURE —AUD— Howes’ Cough Pills, By the concurrent testimony of many sufferers, th fact has been established, that for the cure of DIAUR1KEA OR DYSENTERY In persous of all ages, uo medicine has ever come to the knowledge of tne public, that so effectually doe• it work and at the same time leave* the bowels'in an active, bealt^jy condition, as CLEM S SUMMER CURE. That for Children Cuttiug Teeth, if troubled with Piarrhira or any irregularities of the bowels, all oth or remedies are'insignificant, as compared with CLEM S SUMMER CURE. That fbr Children troubled with Canker in mowth or stomach, or mothers suffering from nursing sore mouth, a safe aud speedy cure \& effected by the use of CLEM S SUMMER CURE. That for Coughs, Hoarseness aud Bronchial aflbet* ions, there is no remedy extaut that so universally affords relief as HOWES’ COUGH 1‘ILLS. That for a Tightness or Wheezing in the Cheat Fains in the side, or a long standing Hack, the best remedy is HOWE S COUGH FILLS. That as an expectorant and ameliorating agent In cases of FhthisJc, Whooping Cough, and Confirmed Consumption, the public have already rendered their united verdict In favor of HOWES’ COUGH FILLS.
