The Change of Commanders.
The flrst emotions of surprise at the unex
pected removal of Gen. McClellan from the
command of the Army of the Potomac, have
passed away, and so far as we can judge from
the tone of the press, there seems to be a gen
eral acquiescence in the measure. It is true
that some of the more radical pro-slavery sym
pathizers growl a little because it has inter
fered somewhat with their programme; but
the people generally have confidence in the
President, and will give to Burnside a hearty
and generous confidence and support. It is
very evident that no motives of a political na
ture induced the government to make the
change, for Burnside is a Democrat. It was a
change simply and purely military in its char
acter, and the change had become a military
necessity. The President, listening to the
voice of the popular will, read in the result of
the recent elections, a demand upon the gov
ernment for a more energetic prosecution of
the war—a demand for more decisive results
than has hitherto been accomplished. The
question arose, is Gen. McClellan the than to
lead to the desired results? No one ques
tioned his ability to organize and discipline a
large army—neither was his ability as a mili
tary engineer, and director of defensive mili
tary operations, brought into question. It was
■imply whether there was sufficient energy
and boldness in his character, sufficient <hi«h
in his composition, to enable him to lead suc
cessfully the great onward movement that was
now aemauaeu oy me people.
It w as a question for military men; aud judg
ing from the past they decided that a change
was imperative. Gen. McClellan had been too
alow in his movements, and had not obeyed
* the peremptory orders of his superior with
snlficient promptitude. A leader possessing
more energy, was demanded, and the change
was made. Gen. Burnside, his successor, has
been faithful and prompt in the discharge of
his duties, in a more limited sphere of action.
He is a man of great energy, and buoyancy of
character. He is, in the army, the soldier's
most popular General, if we may except Mc
Clellan, and outside of it he is much more pop
ular. But the real capacity of the man, his
innate power to manage successfully a large
army in an active campaign, is yet to be
proved. He enters upon the work under
great difficulties. The tine weather of Au
tumn has been wasted in delays, and the rain,
the frost, the mud of a Virginia winter are
close at hand, and yet the onward movement
must be made. We hope he will answer the
expectations of the people. We earnestly
hope he will be successful, and accomplish
something toward crushing this unholy rebcl
lion, as we hoped that McClellan might. He
has our warmest sympathies in his arduous
task. If unfortunately, however, he should
prove unequal to the task, much as we should
regret the necessity, he too would have to give
place to another. But we trust no such occa
sion will occur; we trust that the magnificent
army of the Union, so well organized and dis
ciplined under McClellan, have found in Buru
■ide a leader to triumphant and glorious suc
cess; and that no rain, no frost, no mnd, no
traitor’s arms, will check their onward pro
gress, until the rebellion is crushed, and peace
ouce more restored to our distracted country.
So mote it be. H.
Election News.
Dakotah.—The official canvass of Dakotah
territory gives William Jayne for Congress a
majority of sixteen over J. B. S. Todd present
delegate. Governor Jayne is the brother in
law of Senator Trumble. and a staunch admin
istration man, and Mr. Todd was not.
Colorado.—Hiram P. Bennett, Union, is
reelected to Congress from the territory of
Colorado by a handsome plurality. He will.it
Is understood, press the claims of that territo
ry to admission into the Union.
talBSOCBl.—The returns from Missouri are
most eucouragiug and indicate a free soil ma
jority iu the Legislature. The majority of the
delegation to Congress will be emancipation
ists.
In the first district the vote between Knox
and F. P. Blair is close: Knox's role being 3,
607 and Blair's 4,054—plurality 447. But there
is an army vote yet to come in which promises
to reverse the results. The soldiers at Pilot
Knob vote thus:
Missouri, 3d—Blair 22, Knox 255.
“ 12th, “ 0, “ 233.
“ 17th, “0, “ 243.
The Fourth and Fifth Missouri Cavalry give
majorities for Knox; also the Missouri batter

heard from. His election Is claimed by the
Union as certain. He expects to throw out
a large majority given for Knox by Otterhaus's
division, and to count a large majority for him
self given by regiments raised under the re
cent calls. Knox expects to throw out this
vote.
As there are alleged frauds in the district
of St. Louis, Mr. Knox will, in case the certi
ficate should be conceded to Mr. Blair, contest
the seat.
From the present appearances we presume
that the certificate of electiou will be awarded
as follows:
1st dist—Francis P. Blair, “ conservative.”
2d dist—Henry T. Blow, emancipationist.
3d dist—John W. Noell, emancipationist.
4th dist—S. H. Boyd, emancipationist,
oth dist—McClurg, emancipationist.
6th dist—not ascertained.
7th dist—not ascertained.
8th dist—Win. A. Hail, “conservative.”
9th dist—James S. Rollins, “conservative.”
Michigan Congressmen.—The follow
ing members of Congress aie elected:
1st dist—Fernando C. Beaman, Union.
2d dist—Charles Upson, Union.
3d dist—John W. Longyear, Union.
4th dist—Francis W. Kellogg, Union.
6th dist—Augustus C. Baldwin, People’s.
6th dist—John F. Briggs, Union.
The Legislature will stand as ollows; Sen
ate—Union, 17People s,” 15. House of rep
resentatives—Union, 58; “ People’s,” 42. Tnis
secures the re-election of Zachariah Chandler
to the Senate of the U. States.
United States Senators.—The table be
low gives the names of the U. States Senators
whose terms will expire on the 4th of March
next and the probable political character of
their successors:
States. Present Incumbent. Politics. Successors.
California, M. W. Latham, Democrat, Uniou.
Connecticut,James Dixon, Uniou, J. Dixon,U.
Delaware, J. A. Bayard, Democrat, Democrat.
Indiana, J A. Wright, Union, Democrat.

The number of Administration men going
out is 14, opposion 5. Of those to enter on
their terms in March from those States will
be 13 Admsnistration, two doubtful, and three
opposition. Tennessee will not choose a Sen

The complexion of the next Senate will,
therefore, probably be as follows: Administra

Siminondft the Sculptor.
Beginners are always over-praised. What
ever they do out of the common way, being
wholly unexpected, astonishes. And then
comes a season of discouragement and neglect,
and unless the sufferer be a genius indeed, he
goes broken-hearted through the world; if
not into his grave, like poor Keats. They suc
ceed at llrst because nothing is expected of
them, aud they fail at last, after doing much
Ijetter, perhaps, because too much is expected.
We never allow the same persou to astonish
us more than once, if we can help it. We are
always ahead of him, do what he may.
This young man has had all these trials to
go through. lie was greatly over-praised by
iucompetentjudges at the beginning. But,
full of the true Are, instead of being disheart
ened when the interest apjieared to abate, he
has held on his way, silently, steadily, aud
prayerfully, we hope, until he has completed a
bust worthy of extravagant praise; and that
all may have an opportunity of judging for
themselves* he has had the courage and good
sense to set it up in his studio, on Exchange
street, along side of another bust by Akers,
of the same individual, which has been re
garded for a long time as a masterpiece. To
say that there is no ground for comparison
between the two would be equivocal, and
might be misunderstood; but to say, as I do
now. that in truthfulness, individuality and
just resemblance, the leading and chief char
acteristics of high portraiture, this bust, by Sim
mouds, is as much superior to the best of the
two made by Akers ol the same individual, as
either of those two was superior to the figure
head of a merchant ship.
And yet, Paul Akers had great talent aud
uncommon genius. But he had no kuowledge
of drawing—tor his life he could not have
drawn a mouth, or an eye, to say nothing of a
hand or an cur. The consequeuce was that
his features were often lumpish and unshapely.
Being unable to represent laithlully what he
saw, lie exaggerated, and shirked and gener
alized; and thought he was idealizing; until,
someLiiues, only a vague, general resemblance
appeared, aud even then, his heads were of
such an heroic type that they would not bear
to be met with, face to lace, but r quired to be
set above you, and it was never sale to go near
them. Among his iieads, however, were a
few—a very few—where the details were elab
orated so carefully, a« in that of Mr. .Samuel
Appleton, of Boston, which is now in Mr.
Siimnoud's studio, that the deficiency of draw
ing was not so obtrusive. Like Chester Hard
ing and many of our leading portrait paint
ers, who arc ignorant of draw ing, he had
learned to model as he went on, and died us
ignorant as he begun of the first principles of
his art. Simmonds, on tile contrary, is an ac
curate draughtsman—he has made crayon
likeness—and spirited cameos, and iu the
bust now referred to, he ha* slurred over noth
ing. It is all true, life-like, vitalized aud
fleshy. Just compare the ears iu his bust
wi‘h alt that appears of the same feature in
the bust by Akers, who like Sir Joshua liey
nolds. when he found a ditlicully iu his way
which he could not well get over, on account
of his bad drawing, always buried it up, iu
drapery or chiaro-scuro. So with Akers—
the hair is exaggerated and massed, so as to
cover two-thirds of the ear, and the other
third—the lobe—is just a lump of dough
pinched out of shape. We remember seeing
once iu a newspaper—the Gospel of the Mul
titude—how Akers, being about his “Una and
the Lion,” actually jouruied with a caravan
to study the habit* aud manners of the lion,
and to make drawings for the work he had ‘
underway. Nothing could have been more
ill-advised, or sillier, than such a story—for he
was never able to draw anything that might
by any possibility be mistaken for a lion's paw.
Again aud again, year alter year, he was told
w hat he must do, if he ever hoped to become
what he was trying to be—but he wauted ap
plication,steadliistness,elemeutary knowledge;
aud being wholly unacquainted with the a b
abs of drawing aud anatomy, though his labors
were oftentimes astonishing, and full of high
promise, aud truthful, so far as generalization
may be trutnful, he had reached the highest
point he was capable of before he left us. But
go aud see for yourselves—compare the two
busts, aud the likenesses, and then—act wisely
for the reputation of Pot Hand. But, iu mercy,
do not say you are no judges. Ail men are
judge* who know oue face trout another; aud
if a portrait is a portrait, you can not help see
ing the likeness, however inexperieuced you
may be, aud however unacquaiuted with art.
To say you are no judge, is a cow ardly way of
saying there is no likeness—a mere subterfuge,
to spare the feelings of the artist. J. N.

This valuable society, since its last annual
meeting, has distributed 329 cords of wood to
404 persons, and thereby done an amount of
good to a most worthy and helpless class of
our population, the value of which it would be
difficult to estimate. The society is on an ex
cellent basis, aud has just elected a board of
officers, the Iltness of whom for their work, it
is unnecessary for us to say a word.
The catalogue above speaks for itself. A
more useful charity, or one which is more
highly estimated by our community, we have
not among us. Silently, but most beneficent
ly, it has for years been at work; and from its
efforts have steadily flowed, to the destitute
widow aud orphan, warmth, and comfort, and
sympathy, through the severity of our Xorth
ern winters. We exhort therefore, our citi
zens, not to lose sight of its excellence on this
approach of another severe season, nor to let it
languish for want of funds. The coining win
ter will be a hard one,by the advanced prices
of the necessaries of life. Let these kind men,
whose labors spring from the kindness of the
heart, and who ask or receive no pay, be
cheered by the sympathies of our citizens, by
giving them without grudging, the means to
carry warmth to the many desolate homes of
the stricken widows aud their little ones.—
There has been no former occasions, proba
bly, when this charily should be well sustained,
that exceeds the present. Let all who can,
when tlie call is made, help to sustain the
Widow's Wood Society.

Reply of Gen. Scott to Mr. Buchanan.
A SHARP REJOINDER.
Washington, Nov. 12.
Gen. Scott publishes a rejoinder to Ex-Pres
ident Buchanan. lie (Scott) is sorry to per
ceive that the publication of his official report
to President Lincoln has given offense. That
result was purely incidental, and did not enter
into liis (Scott’s) purpose in drawing up the
paper, but. on reflection he supposes that, un
der tlie circumstances, the offense was unavoid
able.
Let it be remembered, he says, that the new
President had a right to demand of me, the
immediate commander of the army, how it
happened that incipient rebels had bc^p al
lowed to coerce several of those forts, and,
from the bad condition of others, were likely
to gain possession of them also: that primar
ily the blame rested exclusively on me. Hence
to vindicate my sworn allegiance to the Union
and my professional conduct, the report was
submitted to President Lincoln at an early
day in his aeministration, and recently to the
world.
First, to account for not having garrisoned
sufficiently the Southern forts named, against
anticipated treason and rebellion, according to
•ny recommendations, beginning Oct. 20, 1800,
repeated the next-day, and again more recent
ly Dee. 13, 15, 2K, and 30, the Ex-President
says “there were no available troops within
reach.”
He (Scott) then proceeds to show that small
garrisons would at first have been sufficient
for the two forts, Jackson and St. Philip.
Also that his (Scott's) object was to save to
the Union, by any means at hand, all those
works, until Congress could have time to au
thorize a call for volunteers, a call which the
President, for such purpose, might no doubt
have made without any special legislation,
with the full approbation of every loyal man
in the Union.
On the second point he (Scott) says the
President almost loses his amiability in having
his neglect of the forts attributed, as he says,
without the least cause, to Governor Fld^i,
and he adds: “All my Cabinet must bear me
witness that I was, as President, myself res
ponsible lor all the acts of the Administra
tion.”
Now, not withstanding this broad assumption
of responsibility, he (Scott) would be very
sorry to believe that the ex-President special
ly consented to removal by Secretary Floyd
of 115,IKK) extra muskets and rifles, with all
their implements and ammunition, from the
Northern repositories to Southern arsenals, so
that on the breaking out of the maturing re
bellion they might l>e found without cost ex
cept to the United States, in the most conven
ient positions for distribution among the insur
gents.
So, too, of the 120 or 140 pieces of artillery
which the same Secretary ordered from Pitts
burg to Ship Island, in Lake Borgue, and
UAlvcsion, texas, tor ions not, yet erectett.
Aceideulally learning early in March that un
der this posthumous order the shipment of
these guns hud commenced, 1 communicated
the fact to Secretary llolt, acting for Secreta
ry Catneron, just in time to defeat the robbety.
But on this point we may hear ex-Secretafv
Floyd himself at Richinoud. He expressly
claimed the honor of defeating all my plans
and solicitations respecting the forts, and re
ceived his reward, it being there universally
admitted that but for that victory over me
there could have been no rebellion.
Third. Mr. Buchanan complains that I
published without permission on Jan. 18,1861,
my views addressed to him and the Secretary
of War Oct. 26 and 30, I860. But that act
was caused, as 1 explained to him at the time,
by the misrepresentation of my views in one
of the earlier speeches of the same ex-Secre
tary after his return to Virginia.
Fourth, bite of my statements complaining
of the joint countermand sent through the
Secretaries of War and Navy to prevent the
landing at Fort Pickens of Captain Yiodgcs
company, unless the fort should be attacked,
is cited by Hie ex-President to prove a singu
lar want of memory on my part, and a note
from ex-Secretary llolt is adduced to show
that l^tad entirely approved of the joint coun
termand the day (Jan. 26) that it was post
poned.
Few |»crsons are as little likely to make a
misstatement by accident as Mr. llolt,and no
one is more incapable of making one by de
sign yet 1 have not the slightest recollection
of an interview with him on this subject Ido
remember, however, that Mr .Holt, on some
matter of business, approached tny bedside
about that time, when I was suffering from ex
cess of pain. Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Holt and
myself were all landsmen, and could know but
little of the impossibility ot landing troops in
an open sea beach, with a high wind and surf.
Mr. Toucey, Secretary of the Navy, with
officers about him of intelligence and nautical
experience, ought to have said plnmply, that
if Vodges was not to land except in case of
an attack upon Fort Pickens, he might as well
have remained at Fortress Monroe, as the pro
hibition placed the fort, so far as he was con
cerned, at the mercy, or, as the event showed,
the want of enterprise, on the part of the rebel
commander at Pensacola.
Possibly there are other parts of the reply
which a superficial reader may think require
comment or elucidation, and indeed here is an
other marked lor me by my kind visitor.
Fifth—The President has brought together
a labyrinth of dates respecting the arrival aod
departure of rebel commissioners, armistices,
&c., with which, as I had no official connec
tion, I may have made an unimportant mis
take or two; but as I have not by me the
means of recovering the clew to these wind
ings, 1 shall not attempt to follow him.

GEN. BERRV—AN ERROR.
3lettru. Eilitom:—I noticed in the letter
from Washington, in yesterday's Press, that in
the commendation ol Gen. Berry lie was
spoken of as having a command in Gen. Hook
er’s corps. This is a mistake, (unless I have
been greatly misinformed,) for Gen. Hooker
had a division in Gen. Heiatzelman’s corps
until he took McDowell's corps, which he com
manded at Antictam. And Gen. Berry has
had a brigade in Kearney's division, also und-r
Heintzelman. Since Kearney's death the di
vision has part of the time been commanded
by Biruey, and lately by Stoneinan. General
Berry still retains his brigade in this division.
I am informed that Gen. Kearney was wont to
speak in high terms of Gen. Berry.
TEXAS EXPEDITION AND GEN. HOWARD.
It may be worthy of mention that General
Howard has recently |jad an interview with
Maj. Gen. Banks, which seems to indicate that
the former may participate in the Texas ex
pedition. It is said also that Gov. Washburn
is desirous that Gen. Howard should have a
command in the expedition, and will exert his
influence to this end. The division of the 2d
corps, which Gen. II. now has, contains four
teen regiments — Massachusetts, Michigan,
Minnesota and Maine troops, together with a
brigade from Pennsylvania and two regiments
from New York. The friends of Gen. Howard
in the six Maine regimehts to accompauy
Banks, will doubtless be glad to greet him as
their commanding oflicer. Maqcoit.

whole hand) put the large end close against
tlie right eye, and with the left hand hold a
book against the side of the tube. Be 9ure
and keep both eyes open, and there will ap
pear to lie a hole through the book, and objects
seen as if through the hole instead of through
I tube, and the left eye the book, aud the two
j appearances are so confounded together that
| they cannot be separated. The left hand can
! lie held against the tube instead ol the book,
' and the hole will seem to be seen through the
hand.
HOW TI1E PltESIDENT lNTEKP«ET9 THE
Elections.—According to the Washington
correspondent of tlie New York Times, there
is great cause for encouragement in tlie fact
that President Lincoln rightly interprets the
results of tlie late elections as a condemnation
of tlie hesitating policy which has controlled
tlie management of the war. He is continued
in this belief by assurauees received from
prominent member* of the opposition, of their
readiness to sustain him in any policy lookiug
to a speedy suppression of the rebellion.
These promises, of course, come from thor
oughly loyal Democrats, whose party ties have
bouud them to their party for tlie purpose of
keeping tlie Democratic organization from
wholly-falling into tlie hands of sympathizers
with treason.
The Removal of Gen. McClellan.—
Tlie Washington Morning Chronicle,—which
I is a sort of administration organ,—refers to
| the displacement of Gen. McClellan as fol
j lows:
The necessity for active operations in Vir
ginia had become so imperative, that, for rea
sons which appeared eouclnsive, this import
ant change was made. These reasons will
doubtless be made public should tlie interests
of the country demand their disclosure; and
when they are disclosed, which nothing will
appear that can adect the loyalty of Gen. Mc
Clellan. or his capacity lor organizing and
equipping a great army for the held, all his
honest friends will admit that when the Presi
dent sanctioned the recommendation of his
immediate military advisers, lie did so from
the sincere desire that the war might be pros
ecuted with renewed vigor, and our fellow
citizeus in tlie held rescued from the horrors
of uuother winter campaign.
Ambrose Kvcritt llnrnside.
Tlie GeiieraJ-iu-chief of the Army of Vir
ginia, was born in Liberty, Indiana, May 23,
1824. He entered West Point in 1S42 and
graduated in 1847, the eighteenth scholar in a
class of 38—showing himself therefore, jiot
more than an average scholar. He passed
with credit through tlie Mexican war, and re
signed in 1853. He then paid his whole atten
tion to the manufacture of the Burnside rifle,
Imt is said to have lost by tlie business, chiefly
through the knavery of Floyd. He then en
tered tlie Land office of the Illinois Central
Railroad, with which McClellan was already
connected. Afterwards elected Treasurer of
this road, lie resigned that situation to become
| Colonel of the Rhode Island Cavalry, then
General, then Major General, and uow Gener
al-in-chief.

Poor Richard's Eye and Ear Water
Is a new and rare discovery, which is most wonder

of treatment, which have quite as often done harm
as good. Below we give the certificate of Rev. P. 8.

of this remedy, they may learn more of ita practical
valne by addressing a note of inquiry to Mr. H.
PHii.ADri.rnix. Oct. 17,19*3.
From injnriea received in my right eye, when a
boy, a chronic infiammation bad been prAlneed, in
consequence of which I suffered constant martyr
dom. Every mouieut of my waking life waa embit
tered, and I was frequently unable to sleep at night.
A variety of remedies had been resorted to with
out success, and 1 eutertaiued Xlie purpose, aa a last
resort, of haring the ball taken out of its socket, in
the hope of thus finding relief.
In the meantime, most provblentiaily. 1 noticed
one day in a shop window a bottle of POOR RICH
ARD’S EYE WATER. 1 had never beard ol it bo
fore, bat determined to try It. anil MU. with the most
delightfril results. In a very few days tho painful
irritation was removed; I could bear the strongest
light, and went forth to the enjoyment of a new lift.
I now keep a bottle of it always in the house, and If
my eye seems at all disposed to annoy me, I giye it a
dose, and that is an end of it. I would not be with
say, farther, that ray wife used to suffer severely ut
times from protracted pain in and over her eye-, and
she ha* found £oor Richard's Eye Water a sov
ereign specific in her case, giving her almost instant
relief. Grateful to God for the benefit that I have
personally received, I cannot but commend the prep
aration to all who have been sufferers like myself.
