THE DAILY PRESS,
PORTLAND, MAINE.
-—
Friday Morning, November T, 1862.
The Portland Daily PresB has the larges!
regular circulation of any daily paper in
the city.
The Great Democratic (I) Victory.
The Democrats have carried New York.
They have elected their candidate for Gover
nor, and they have also elected a majority ol
the delegation for the next Congress. Having
thus gained a great victory in a great State, it
is only fair that the victors should have all the
honors that such a victory brings with it.—
What these honors are can be better under
stood by considering the elements w hich are
embraced in the victory; and the character
of those elements can lie very safely inferred
from the men who have been thrown upon
the top of the wave by the great struggle
through which the State has just passed. Of
Mr. Seymour, Governor-elect, we need say
nothing here except that, since the rebellion
broke ont, his course has not been such as to
encourage and strengthen the government in
Its efforts to crush out the rebellion, and to
maintain its ow n integrity. He is unquestion
ably a conditional Union man; one who w ould
be glad to see the Union preserved If it can be
doue consistently with the most friendly rela
tions to the rebel States, the continuance of
the slave institutiou uninjured,and the success
of the Democratic party; but before lie would
see the South severely crippled, and before he
would see slavery permanently injuied, he
would say to the Southern States, “Wayward
sisters, depart in peace;"’ and before he would
see the rebellion crushed out by a Republican
administration, or by a war that may redound
to the glory of a Republican administration,
he would perhaps weelotne Jeff. Davis to
iTiuum^iAui, uic hnet > unmuu
tion, and thus spread the Confederate govern
ment overthc whole Union—thus mixing it up
with Northern democracy, making it domi
nant in the present tree States, and raising to
a political resurrection those effete and offens
ive men that were killed off by Linooln's elec
tion, and entombed at his inauguration.
But there are three jewels in the crown re
cently won by the New York democrats, of
more than usual brilliance, and to which they
are justly entitled, and from which they can
no more escape than can a shaggy dog's ear
from the burs of a burdock. We allude to
three representative men—proper and fitting
representatives of the animua of the organiza
tion in that State—who have recently been
elected to Congress from the city. And
1. Ben Wood. The Democrat* have elect
ed him. At the last tession of Congress the
question of his loyalty was raised, and that,
together with his probable expulsion, were
pending at the adjournment, and will come up
in course in Decemlter. He is the solitary
man who voted with Vallandigham against
the resolution of Mr. Crittenden, declaring
that “the present deplorable civil war has been
forced upon us by the disuuionists of the
South,” and he has proved himself oue of the
most unprincipled men that ever disgraced a
seat in the federal legislature. Let the Dem
ecrats have all the honor of electing him.—
They have got him, elected him in full view of
his well-known disloyalty, and he is their es
pecial representative, and they are responsi
ble for his political conduct
2. James Brooks.—Not originally nomin
ated by democrats, but by “conservatives”—
heaven save the mark—and afterwards adopt
ed and supported by democrats, their own
candidate—a loyal man—having taken himself
out of the way. And who is James Brooks ?
He is the shameless traducerof his own New
England birth-place, who has shown as much
of the ingrate as ever did the Yankee rene
gade, Albert Pike, who brought into the field
a tribe of savages to scalp and tomahaw k the
playmates of bis boyhood! Brooks' campaign
speeches have been published and applauded
in the Charleston Mercury. He was once the
wholesale denouncer of slavery; now he is the
most bitter and blatant defender of it, and the
villiflrr of all who oppose it. Him have the
democrats elected, and hereafter his acts are
to be set down to the credit of democracy.
tebnando Wood.—Last though not
least we come to the head-and-shoulders of
treason in the “empire city”—the man who,
as Mayor of the commercial and popular me
tropolis of the New World, officially urged
her secession from the Uuion, and that she
should, ignoring her relations to the rest of
the country, set up on her own hook, to be the
gigantic broker, middle-man and supply mer
chant of the two contending parties—rebels
and loyalists. He is a man of vast power lor
mischief, and that power he has seldom failed
to exert except for purposes of mischief. His
whole soul is in sympathy with the rebellion,
and to-day he is doubtless as much a traitor at
heart and in purpose as Jeff. Divis himself.
Him have the democrats elected. He is their
man. He is a jewel in their crown. Ifthey
can feel p-ide in the election of such a man,
and the other two named, so be it; but don’t
let those who rejoice in such a triumph iusult
common sense and abuse the Euglish language,
by claiming to be the friends of the govern
ment as it is, or the enemies of the rebellion.

Editorial Correspondence ol the Press.
Visit to to the United States Armory at
Springfield.
Hartford, Conn., Nov. 4,1862.
After closing our letter this morning, our
little party took the morning express train to
Springfield, where we stopped for the purpose
of visiting the United States Armory. After
dining at the Massasoit House (which, by the
way, is an excellent hotel, notwithstanding
the waiters are very independent,) we spent
the afternoon in passing through the various
work-shops of the establishment, and in wit
nessing the operations of the almost endless
variety of machinery employed in manufac
turing the celebrated “Springfleld Killed Mus
ket,” which has stood the test of active ser
vice, and has, we are sale in saying, no supe
rior as an arm for infantry. Major Dyer, the
accomplished Superintendent of the Works,
very kindly provided us with a very pleasant
and gentlemauly guide, Mr. J. B. Fessenden,
to whom we are indebted for much valuable
information. The barrels are “rolled” at the
Water Power shops, some distance from the
Armory proper; these are then brought to the
Works and finished. The rifling machine, of
which there are a large number kept constant
ly in operation, seems to be almost endowed
with an intuitive power of its own, so singu
larly complicated and accurate are ils move
ments. Passing farther we enter long rooms
which arc literally filled with pulleys, bells, and
wonderful little machines,each one a monument
Ol human skill and the inventive genius of
American artisans, and each one designed for
the special purpose of manufacturing some
particular piece pertaining to the musket.
This one is biting a little iron rod into little
bits and transforming them into screws, per
fectly finished, in a twinkling—that one is
plaining down the rough plate for the lock—
here are little lathes and drills and pinchers,
Mi ————
and the little bits of steel are turned and
drilled and punched, apparently as easily as if
they were so many bits of pine wood. Down
here are massive machines that cut the rough
pieces from the bar as easily as if the hard
metal were so much lead. But time passes,
and we must hasten. Every little piece nec
essary to a perfect gun is manufactured by
machinery, and so accurately that it will just
fit its designed place in every musket that is
made. Every piece is, when finished, rigidly
inspected by competent persons appointed for
that purpose. In another building immense
quantities ol black walnut plank are converted
into stocks, and here, as in the other depart
ments, is an almost endless variety of curious
and complicated machinery, through which
these pieces of wood nrc successively passed,
until the unshapely block which entered comes
out a completly finished stock, ready to receive
the barrel. Everything, even to the cutting of
the hole for the lock, is done by machinery.
We were informed by Mr. Fessenden thatdur
■ ing the mouth of October they had manufac
tured 20,000 muskets, and were now turning
them out at the rate of 800 per day, which are
shipped directly to the Government as fast as
they are manufactured. Twenty-eight hun
dred men are constantly employed in the vari
ous work-shops—extensive addilious to which
are constantly being made. The Armory is
delightfully situated on the top of an emi
nence, overlooking the town. It was located
here, we understand, particularly on account
of the peculiar dryness of the soil and atmos
phere. We had made the tour of the work
shops and ascended the tower on the Arsenal
building just as the sun was sinking behind
the Western horizon. The view from this
tower is exceedingly lovely and magnificent.
Away in the North we see Mt. Tom and Mt.
Holyoke—mountains in Massachusetts—al
though dow n in Maine we should call them
hills. In the West the beautiful Connecticut
lingers lovingly around, a scene of rare beauty
and loveliness. Below our feet lies the beau
tiful town of Springfield, aud all about the
country is dotted with groves and farms and
sweet little cottages—a scene, to witness
which, is alone riclilv worth a visit to Spring
field. But we could not linger, and much as
we regretted the necessity, we were obliged
.to hasten back in season to take the cars for
Hartford, where we arrived at half-past six,
and are now quietly domiciled at the Allyn
House. To-morrow we visit the American
Asylum, some account of which we shall give
iu our next. U.
Correspondence of the Press.
Letter front the Maine 8th.
Eighth Regt. Me. Voi.s., I
Beaufort, S. C., Oct. 24. )
Messrs. Editors :—Our camp here is beau
tifully situated. Its location is very pleasant
and is healthful. Our rounds of duty are quite
different from those of the first teu months of
our service. We frequently do advance picket
duty which is an employment that we enjoy.
Then we make our quarters in the fine old
mansions the rich planters have left, and iu
rowing in light boats upon the beautiful wa
ters of the Broad River or Coosaw, or fishing
and gathering oysters, which are very abun
dant, scouting amoug the numerous islands—
passing the hours very pleasantly.
Seven of our companies are now on that du
ty. Our excellent Col. Rust is acting Briga
dier and Commanding this post,while oursuu
ny-faced genial Miy'orHemmiuway,commands
our camp.
During the time we spent on the islands of
the Savannah and at Hilton Head last year,
excessive fatigue and exposure brought on
much sickness and thinned our Tanks. But
lor the last three months, probably no Maine
Regt. has been more pleasantly located.
Gen. Brannon, with a force of some 4500,
landed at the junction of the Broad and Coo
saw Rivers, day before yesterday, and attack
. ed the rebel forces. The first battle opened
with heavy volleys of musketry; the gunboats
commenced firing and the rebels broke and fled.
Our forces drove them some five miles, when
they crossed a deep creek, tearing up the
bridge after them, thus preventing our cross
ing. Then the second fight took place across
the creek and marsh by which it was border
ed. The battle raged learfully for several
hours. The rebels received heavy reinforce
ments. Three very long traiqp of cars were
seen to c<jme up from the direction of Char
leston, loaded with fresh troops. Our men
were probably outnumbered two to one. Still
for three hours longer the fight continued at
short range, when night closed it. Had day
light lasted an hour longer the enemy would
have beeu flanked by a portion of our troops
--**0 VWIMHIg U J/WU SUVUi liVUI HUUUiCl
point.
The enemy having been so strongly rein
forced, anil as Gen. Brannon had whipped
them in two engagements, our forces during
the night leisurely retired to the gunboats aud
transports, and returned to their camps at
Beaufort and Hilton Head. We have about
thirty killed aud 280 wounded. Capts. Jun
ker aud Mickley of the 47th Penn., Capt. Ben
net of the 5oth Penn., Capt. Anderson of the
8th Conn., are killed. Col. Bell of tlie 4th X.
H. and Col, Chatfield of the 6th Conn, are
wounded, the latter severely. Gen. Brannon
captured several prisoners. It is supposed
Beauregard commanded in the second battle.
It is understood that Gen. Saxton, Military
Governor, has been tendered his choice of ail
the Regiments in this Department, and that
he has selected the Maine 8th.
This Regt. is certainly commanded by one
of the very best Colonels in this Department.
_ B.
The Argus publishes ts gross and ma
lignant attack upon Gen. Xeal Dow, the mili
tary commander at Pensacala. He is de
nounced even for stopping the grog rations,
though they have been ordered stopped by the
highest authority; and he is alleged to be un
popular, aud to be disrespected by those tin
der him. This is the consistency of a paper
that has been unsparing in its abuse of the
Press, because the latter allowed correspond
ents, in an open and frank manner, to criticise
the military operations of a commander near
the Potomac. The Argus, alter allowing its
correspondent to make his malicious attack
upon an honored citizen of Portland, who is
two thousand miles from home, devoting his
energies to his country’s defense; after defam
ing the good name aud honor of a military
commander, not only in the face of those
whose duty it is to obey him, but in the faces
of his family and home friends, fries to escape
the responsibility by saying—“If any unwar
rantable assertions have I let'll made, any relia
ble person can put his word In.”
7 The Xew York World says of Mr-Bu
chanan’s late elaborate defence that “it leaves
tiiiimponched the broad tact that Gen. Scott,
as early as October, 1860, urged on the Presi
dent the necessity of putting strong garrisons
on tile souiheru torts, and that his patriotic
solicitations were unavailing.” The only evi
dence we have yet seen in the columns of the
World, that.it has not entirely backslidden
from its indefinite religious proclivities, is the
diet that it still refuses to endorse, exculpate
or even excuse Buchanan’sshaineful imbecility,
and weakness before defiant treason.
Occasional Correspondence of tho Press.
From the 13th Maine Regiment.
Fort St. Phillip, La., Oet. 23,1862.
Messrs. Editors: — We have been moved
again, that is one battallion, since I wrote to
you last, although but a short distance. Gen.
Dow has left us for Pensacola, since which
time we have been under the command of Col.
Goodwin of the 31st Mass, (.’apt. J. L. Saw
yer of Co. G, has resigned. I suppose you have
seen him in good old Portland ere this time
Lieut. Goodwin of Co. K has been appointed,
Capt, of Co. G, and has taken command. We
notice by the “Press,” just received with wel
come, that our fellow soldier, William IT. Sar
jent of Portland, is appointed as 2d Lieut, of
the same—a most excellent appointment, by
tlie way.
It has been some time since we heard from
our Portland friends. We have been expect
ing the pay-master every week for the last six
weeks, but lie has not made Ills appearance
yet. We have been paid but once since we
left Maine! and the allotment money on that
payment has not reached home yet, at least it
had not the last we heard. Petitions have
been signed by the six companies here to have
the roll broke. What the reason is that the
mouey has not got there is more than I can
imagine, unless some one lias got it specula
ting with.
The news of the great battle in Maryland
put us in good spirits, and we should be glad
to hear that the rebels had been followed up
with more of the same sort. We got news
from New Orleans (through rebel sources)
that another great battle had taken place at
Coriuth; according to their account they got
the worst of it. I should be glad to hear that
they had caved in, and the war was closed,
which I think will be the case before spring.
I notice by the northern papers that the Pres
ident’s proclamation does not meet with a very’
hearty approval, at least on the part of some.
What is the reason of it? I think it will do
more to wind up the war than any one tiling
that lias been done, but then I maybe mistaken.
We are having delightful weather now.
Oranges are in abundance, large and sweet;
wc get them for from five to ten cents per doz
en. The health of the Regiment has improved
with the cooler weather and better quarters,
(we are all now in barracks.) Whether we
are to stay here this winrer or move again
soon is more than I can say. We have had all
sorts of rumors about going to this place or
that, but I do not see. that we are any nearer
moving now than when we first came here.
We are very glad when wre hear from our
friends in Maine, and to receive either letters
or papers from them. I hope they will kindly
remember 11s iu these respects during the en
suing winter. Yours truly,
lllou PjtlVATK.
To the People of Maine.
At a period when the most urgent necessity
summons every aid to the preservatin of na
tional existence, action is imperatively de
manded.
Tue business of this war upon Rebellion is
to save and strengthen ourselves, as well as to
d-stroy or vanquish the enemy. Operations
iu the field, on a scale of surpassing magni
tude, are liable to obscure Me necessities of
the Hospital, which, however, keep alarming
pace with the progress of this terrible struggle.
Suffering again appeals to us. and demands
that our neighbors, (citizen soldiers’) prostra
ted in battle or by disease, shall receive more
substantial evidence of our sympathy. Wilde
the Administration fulfills its part iu affairs, it
cannot look into an infinitude of particulars,
and apply the needed care; hence philanthro
py and private bounty are lelt to their appro
priate work—qualities which prompt attention
to tlie humblest soldier, searching out and at
tending to his wants.
Ot the twenty-nine (29) regiments of our
State, at the present time iu the Held, the
greater part are in the army of Virginia,and ill
the vicinity of Washington. Here are brought
the wounded and the disabled o! the late bat
tles , and the sick each day are brought from
Maine regimeuts to the Hospitals at Washing
ton.
The “Maine Soldiers’ Relief Association,”
composed of citizens of Maine residing in
Washington, has already achieved eminent
usefulness in alleviating distress, exposing
and correcting abuses, and by co-operating
generally with all humane enterprises for the
relief of sick and wounded men in the service.
Hospitals arc daily visited; their management
scrutinized and reported; the name, rank,
command, ami condition of each patient as
certained and registered.
The meintiers of the Association have ex
pended largely of their means to promote
.liese beneficent ends, and tlley will continue,
cheerfully and religiously, to execute the trust
devolved upon them; but they must lie aided
ind sustained by the people of Maine. It is
rour generous patriotism that must replenish
.lie funds whicli enable human agency, under
Providence, to save many a valuable life,
l'heretbre, In behalf of our country, our reli
gion, our liberty, our neighbors, and humanity,
we appeal to every citizen of Maine to take
his matter personally iu hand, that all may be
nstrumental in alleviating the sufferings of
hose who have gone out from among us to
rindicate the works of our fathers.
It need not lie said that where hardships and
I ........ ..I.I .J .1. 11
eers of Maine liave been of the foremost—ev
•r answering to the rn!I-eall of danger; hence
et not their sufferings invoke our humanity iu
tain. The ties of neighborhood, kindred, and
luinin nature, unite to bind upon us the high
jbligation to care for and cherish the devoted
nen who “do and dare” for the country; who
it vast expense of treasure, and infinite sacri
lce to present interests and tender affections
Jf family, have gone forth for us to battle
with the rebelion. Be it our part to sustain
•heir hands while they strive with the enemies
jf the Republic, and so maintain the iutergri
yaud invincibility of our armies.
The Sanitary Commission is doing a tnarvel
jus work, and should be amply sustained by
(very patriot, Christian, and philanthropist,
its labors of love are as broad as the Republic,
ind as universal as light. But, when it is pos
able, soldiers from Maine wish to be visited bv
jersons and contributions from Maine; it makes
■Item cheerlul ami happy. Contributions in !
noney are the chief aids required, as it can tie
nstantly applied to purchase all required, sug
jested tiy the condition of the invalid. All
jther contributions, however, are earnestly
tailed for. All contributions of money should
je forwarded to the lion. Horatio King, Treas
irer of the Association.
The association has provided itself with a
Store-house and Store-keeper. All goods
ihouldbe marked: Maine Soldiers Relief As
lociation, Washington, I). C. And the receipt
wherefore will be immediately acknowledged.
The Association will actively co-operate
with the agency of Maine now established iu
Washington. It will promptly answer all re
piests for information of soldiers of Maine reg
rnents who may he confined in the Hospitals

meanest, and most selfish of all the nasty, dir- |
ty, mean, and selfish slave-trading ports of lib- !
erty-loving England. It was to Africa and i
America what Delos once was to tile East and
Italy, the great entrepot and depot of com
merce iu human tlcsh and immortal souls. Xo
wonder that the vile hole should now desire to
see men succeed who rebelled in the interests
of slavery and the slave trade. The town is
built on negroes' bones, as they used to say that
Amsterdam w’as built on herring-bones.—[Tra

Portland & Kennebec Railroad.—At
a meeting of the 2d bondholders of the Ken
nebec Jfc Portland Railroad, held at Brunswick
on the 5th inst., the name of the corporation
was changed to Portland & Kennebec Kail
road Company. The object of so simple and
slight a change is not stated. A code of by
laws was adopted, and a Board of Directors
chosen, as follows:—Ether Shepley, Portland;
Richard D. Rice, Darius Alden, Augusta; Geo.
F. Patten, William D. Bewail, Bath; N. W.
Whitmore, Gardiner; II. S. Ilagar, Richmond.
A letter from New Orleans complains
that black soldiers are allowed to carry their
weapons, while tile white. imputation is obliged
to go unarmed. “A pretty state of affairs!”
says the letter writer. So it is, and we hope
soon to see the same state of affairs in Charles
ton, Mobile, Savannah, and other Southern
towns. The blacks there being loyal, and the
whites traitors, the state of affairs at New Or
leans is indeed pretty.

No invalid should be without one.
As an evidence of ihe superiorly of
