The Portland Daily Press has the largest

The Distress in Lancashire.
The suffering in the cotton manufacturing
districts of England shows no signs of abate
ment. By this time it is estimated tliai 300,
000, representing more than 600.000 persons,
are dependent on charity for daily bread.—
These 30O,OQOhauds earn, when at work, some- \
thing near $815,000 a week; these figures j
measure approximately the gross sum of want (
which appeals to the world’s bounty, but give
no hint of the pain and shame, pain of hun
ger, and shame of beggary, they represent. A
clergyman near Manchester says he found in
one house nine persons, who had been with
out Are for seven days, and whose only food
tor that time had been six pounds of oatmeal;
in another were ten persons, who had lived a
week on eighty cents; in the next were eight
grown persons without food, or the means of
procuring it; the wife had just given birth to
twins, and one of them had died. Close on
the heels of famine creeps pestilence. “The
true spotted typhus fever,’’ says the London
Lancet, “the famine fever, a dire concomitant
of prolonged dearth, is slowly but surely ex
tending its ravages in the Lancashire district.”
This fever is caused by long exposure to cold
or moisture, nnd by irregular or deficient diet.
It can only be subdued by attacking and re
moving these causes.
Such is a faint outline of the bare physical
facts which characterize the Lancanshire fam
ine. The temper of the operatives is admira
ble. For a time they were very unwilling to
receive assistance; but since the vast calamity
has enveloped the whole community this nat
ural repugnance has given way. Jo ask aid
is no longer a private and |>eculiar disgrace.—
A correspondent of the London Times for
Nov. 27, thus describes the patience and cour
age of these poor people:
Many of them were dejected, indeed almost
prostrate. Many showed in their faces the
terrible struggle through which they had pass
ed before consenting to accept relief. One, a
decent shopkeeper, showed me his books to
prove that his whole profits fora week hail on
ly been 6d., and asked il'I thought he had done
very wrong to come on the committee. Anoth
er spoke cheerfully, as he hoped that an Eng
lishman might feel justified iu accepting chari
ty to save his family from starving: but while
he spoke he turned pale, a spasm crossed his
face, and he rose suddenly and left the room,
while his wife burst into tears. Everywhere I
met the marks of terrible mental suffering.
But nowhere did I find any complaint against
the upper classes, any sense ofinjustice, or of
having been hardly used. Never was there
seen a nobler simplicity of endurance.
The ordinary legal provision for the main
tenance of paupers cannot be expected to meet
the necessities of so great a disaster. Lanea
shireseems to be doing all that could be ex
pected of her in her corporate capacity. The
rates could not tie advanced much further with
out ruining the smaller ratepayers. The man
ufacturers are doing more than any other class
for their workmen. One large firm distributed
food and money among them at the rate of
$600 a week; another has spent in provisions,
coal, and soup very nearly $3000; several have
furnished outdoor labor for a part of their
hands; one young man just beginning business
(and doubtless others not reported,) having
nothing else has given his time and energy
without stint; another is working up cotton,
which he could sell without trouble at a profit
of ten cents a pound. “Nnw,” said a small
manufacturer, who had bought yarn lor his
weavers, and was ofi'efed an advance of $1500
on the lot, “Naw, I bowt it to keep ’em going,
and they shall have it.”
It has been a general opinion that this dis
tress is occasioned by the American war. That
is not the case. Since the visit of M. Felix
Foncon to England, and the publication of his
article in the Paris Presse, it has become more
and more apparent that nothingcould be worse
for England than the raising of the blockade,
and the free importation of more cotton. This
view is adopted by English newspapers. The
Liverpool Courier says:
Of the cause of this lamentable distress we
think that the non-supply of American cotton
is not the proximate one, though it is popular
ly assigned to be such. The closing of many
mills was, we apprehend, a necessity laid upon
their owners, in consequence of the diminished
demand for their manufactured goods, all
available markets being glutted by the heed
less energy ol excessive exportation during the
last four years. Under these circumstances,
if. mnnnt trnlv nlliurmi flint flu* diffli'iiltiou
connected with the non-exportation of cotton
from America have as yet fairly commenced.
“We don't want cotton,” said an eminent
Manchester salesman, "we want markets for
the goods that encumber our warehouses," and
ho S|K>ke out the exact state of the Manches
ter case, probably up to the present time.
The misfortune which lias befallen the op
eratives would equally have teached them
through the ruin of their employers, had this
continent remained at peace during the last
year. The war, which is the financial salva
tion of the manufacturers, is so far from being
a cause of the suffering of their workmen, that
without it the miiiowners would no longer l>c
in a condition to relieve the misery which
would no less have come upon that district.
These people are our friends; they are our
kinsmen. The English hatred of America
is only political; so far as the hatred of de
mocracy pervades the English people, there is
little hope of sympathy in our national troub
les, but the working men as a body do not
share that hatred. They are consistent in
their opposition to slavery, which has never
presented itself in the daugerous guise of an
ally to their political hopes. One employer
called together his hands, told them ho- could
no longer give them work, ami referred to the
American war as the cause. “We don't mind
suflering a bit,” was the reply, “if we can only
set the poor slaves free.” We cannot let these
men and women starve. Something, however
little compared with their needs, we can do.
On Saturday $100,000 had been raised in New
York. One firm offered a ship of 1800 tons
burden to carry the supplies—an offer equiva
lent to $20,000. A. T. Stewart gave $10,000;
Gerritt Smith, $1,000; a gentleman, who did
not communicate his name, 1000 barrels of
flour and $7000 in money. Similar move
ments are in progress elsewhere. It chills the
warm heart ol the nation to learn that the T.
B. Wales, offered by her owners last Wednes
day to a committee of the Boston Board of
Trade, for the purpose of conveying a cargo
of provisions to the poor of England, has been
burned by a Confederate steamer sailing from
an English port and manned by Englishmen.
But the sufferers of Lancashire are not respon
sible for this. We are blessed with full har
vests; we have been used to helping the fam
ine smitten poor of the British Islands: ev
en In tne midst of this terrible contest which
now absorbs our energies, we can hut turn
aside and listen to that cry. It is our duty,
our pleasure, our pride.
The general complaint against the land
owners of Lancashire seems too well founded.
Dr. Frederick Temple, Arnold's successor at
Rugby, and one of the authors of that theo
logical firebrand, the “Essays and Reviews,”
thus writes to the Times :
The landowners have not yet, as it seems to
me, appreciated the greatness of the need.
The landowner, like the millowner, has been
enriched by the presence of the men who are
now in want. But the millowner has risked
his capital, has given his time and the labor of
his brain to make hi- money. The landowner
may have spent his time in social enjoyments,
may have lived at I’aris or Italy, and yet, with
out costing him an effort or a care, his prop
erty has steadily Increased 111 value, because
busy men have come near him to work. If the
riches of the millowner are liable to the de
mand of the operatives, much more are those
of the landowner; and this terrible crisis has
seriously damaged the former, while it has left
the latter almost or quite unscathed.
That the property of the county is well able
to bear the burden there cannot be the slight
est doubt. If Parliament is to interfere, the
interference should consist in putting the bur
den on the right shoulders, not in transferring
it to the shoulders of the nation.
If this be true, and the amount and nature
of the evidence is conclusive, it is to be hoped
that the burden will find the right shoulders;
and so long as the shoulders are unprotected
by this just burden, may the lash of a world’s
scorn descend upon them. Let us not howev
er hastily infer that we are discharged from all
obligation liccause the property of Lancashire
is able to bear the burden. The sufferers are
not thereby relieved; and, remember, they are
our friends. Time also must elapse before the
resources of the county can be brought into
full operation; and meanwhile the American
contributions may save many lives even.
The London Times and Gen. McClellan.
It will be remembered that when Bull Run
Russell, the “special correspondent” of the
London Times, with Gen. McClellan’s consent
to follow his army to the Peninsula, had snug
ly stowed himself on board a government
transport, with his carriage, bis horses, and
servants, by order of Secretary Stanton he
was directed to “walk the plank,” taking his
traps with him, and was thus refused the priv
ilege which he sought of hanging upon the
HKins ui our uruiy uprrttuuup, umt mipii
disparage ami traduce us before tile world in
the columns of the Times. It is remembered,
too, how he went off suddenly to London, dis
gusted alike, of course, with Stanton's dis
courtesy, and with republican notions of civil
ity to swaggering attaches of the English
From that time the Times, as was to lie ex
: pected, fell to abusing our government in
general, and the Secretary of War in particu
lar. and to lauding nobody oil this side of the
water—if we except the rebels—but Gen. Mc
j Clellan, and those who have thought, through
the weight of his name and influence, to break
down the administration, and raise to life up
on its ruins a dead and defunct party organi
zation. But if any man ever had reason to
pray, in relation to foreigners as well as na
tives, “save me Iroin my friends,” that man is
Gen. George B. McClellan. Not more dis
creet than have been John Van Buren, Fer
nando Wood, and the Bellast Journal, lias been
the London Times, in its attempts to exalt
McClellan a head and shoulders above all the
rest of his countrymen; and not more trans
parent have been the meanness and unworthi
uess of the motives in one case than in the
In the Times of Nov. £5th is an article in re
’ lation to Gen. McClellan, which is interesting
i in showing how this European mouth-piece of
slaveholding secession agrees with its sympa
thizers on this side of the Atlantic. In the
first extract we ask the reader to notice Hie
statement that McClellan is the only Northern
General w hom the enemies of the North re
spect, and that he is the foremost man of a
party coming into power:
He (McClellan) is the foremost member of
a party which is coming into power. He is
the only man among the Northern Generals
whom the enemies of the Iforth respect; and
perhaps we may even say that he is the only
man among those Generals whom the world
at large respects. Vet, w hile lie is in camp
surrounded by his friends, late one night a
missive is put into his hands from a President
who seems to have lost all influence, and from
a Government w hich is sinking daily into con
tempt, and immediately this powerful Gener
al lays down his command, sinks into a private
individual, and with a short farewell to his
men, goes aw ay into retirement, and almost in
to exile.
In the following see how adroitly allusion is
made to a coup d'etat, and how easily it might
have been accomplished if American soldiers
had been the ignorant, passive, unpatriotic
hirelings that the Times imagines them to be,
judging, probably by what it knows of the
merceuaiy troops of its own country:
He (McClellan) appears to lie the only man
in America who admits that the law has any
force. If McClellan had wanted precedents
or pretexts for tossing his official dismissal in
to his camp fire, neither was difficult to And,
nor far to seek. If it w as proper to resist by
Courts, and to deny tbe halieas corpus writ in
eases of arrest of American citizens, surely a
great necessity might have beeu pleaded to
firevent the action of a mere State Secretary's
etter; and if the whole municipal laws and
individual liberties ol'America are rightly sus
pended under the plea of military exigency
surely a similar plea might have justified a res
olution of Gen. McClellan not to leave his ar
my leaderless while in the face of the enemy.
The Times seems to understand the feelings
of the Democrats in this country; a'any rate,
it speaks for them, and intimates that they
would have applauded an attempt on his part
to subvert the government:
j To strike down this party then even at the
head of the Army of the Republic was an act
of vigor which might have had important con
sequences had the General's ambition been
equal to his opportunity. If Gen McClellan
lull! refused obedience there is great reason to
believe that the army w ould have stood by him,
and that a large party of the Democrats
tcould hare applauded him.
Here follows more of the same kind, mingled
with twaddle about “saving the Constitution”
from the President’s violation; but the
reader will probably agree with us that the
Times’ respect for our Constitution, and its
fear of its violation, are paralleled only by the
demonstrations of Messrs. Van Ruren, Wood,
«fc Co., in the same general direction. The
Times says:
! To save the Constitution by force from the
i forcible violations by the President would
I have Ia?en a fair party cry. But McClellan
has preferred to play the part of the model
constitutional Democrat; he yields obedience
even to Mr. Lincoln, that he' may show his
zeal for the Constitution, and, with a smoth
ered complaint of “doubt and coldness” in
some quarters, he turns aside from the possi
ble dictatorship to till his New Jersey farm.
In the following is a very distinct intimation
that McClellan has more confidence in Jack
son and Lee. than lie has in Burnside, and that
the latter's failure to cope with the rebel gen
erals will afford gratification to McClellan.
This is the kindness of the Times for the late
commander of the army of the Potomac:
A bold, patriotic man might have lieen daz
zled by the glory or Impelled by the duty of
daring everything in order to put an end to
the present outporing ot blood and arresting
the present rush to ruin; but so far as the
world knows Gen. McClellan he was likely to
I see things in a different light. While matters
are going so well for him and his party there
j is no need of any great coup. No doubt Gen.
McClellan has confidence in Lee and Jackson
j it we have not in Gen. Burnside, and he nat
! urally thinks that operations w hich lie did not
believe to be wise to attempt himself could
not be successfully carried out by the General
who has superseded him.
The Times, In the following, but too clearly
I reflects the feeling of a class of disloyal persons
' in the free States, who would welcome nothing
with so much gusto as a defeat in Virginia; !
but that McClellan has calculated upon being
re-called with augmented power, to “finish up
the present decaying government,” we are not
prepared to believe, though we do not doubt j
“the thought” is “shared by a great many |
others” with whom the “wish is father to the i
A great defeat in Virginia would bring hack
McClellan with augmented power and reputa
tion, and would finish up the present decaying
Government. Such inay be the calculations
of the obedient General who formed the army
of the I’otomac, and if such be the thoughts
that swayed him they seem to be shared by a
great many others.
The Times goes on with a long rigmarole
about panic in the New York stock market,
the creeping up of gold and exchanges, all of
which “uneasy feeling is doubtless complimen
tary to McClellan, and must be (unsatisfactory
to Lincoln”; flings at Gen. Halleck for his
“long letter ofindictment against McClellan,”
and finally winds up with the following some
what ambiguous but pregnant language:
Some of flic Americans evidently looked
wistfully to Lord Lyons, who is just arrived
at Washington; but it is clear that what Mc
Clellan dares not soy. and Seymour dorrs not
soy, would not he prudently said by foreign
ers. 11’ it be true, as the Southerners boast,
that they are massing their forces on the Rap
pahannock to fight the greatest battle of the
war. the fortune of such a battle may change
all things; but in default of some fuel of this
kind, the fire seems to lie sinking, and perhaps
McClellan may he out of fashion and forgotten
before the next Presidential election comes oil'.
We have never desired to believe a word
adverse to the strict integrity of Gen. Mc
Clellan, nor do we uow believe that he can
lend his countenance to the vile use that is be
ing made of his name, or that he can be other
wise than annoyed by such desperate men in
the furtherance of a desperate cause. But if
we are mistaken in this, if McClellan is satis
fied to have suggestions of usurpation and in
which such a course oil his part would tie hail
ed by his soldiers and the members of a great
party, then his removal did not take place a
moment too soon. We go further, and say
that were McClellan as pure as an angel, and
as patriotic as Aristidcs.so long as he is young,
possessed of the ordinary feelings of ambition,
bas human passions and weaknesses, he would
be a dangerous man at the head of an army, if
for a moment he would give ear to the coun
sels and suggestions daily made in his hearing,
and evidently intended to corrupt his heart,to
lire his ambition, aud to make him the instru
j ment of wicked and designing men.
New England Soldiers' Keliei Association.
II. R. Warriner, President; J. B. Alvord,
Secretary; K. Houghton, Superintendent.—
Head Quarters, S. E. corner of Thirteenth and
Chestnut Streets.
This Association, formed for the purpose of
assisting the sick and wounded soldiers from
the New England States, in the U. S. Army
Hospitals in this city, and such as may need
aid while pussing through here on their way
to the army or their homes, desire that those
who are interested in the subject should fully
understand the method adopted to carry out
this purpose.
Our plan is to appoint one or more visitors
to each hospital, whose duty it is to see every
New England patient, and by means of a prop
er blank, get his military history, sanitary con
dition and home address. We then endeavor
to supply his necessities, ami as far as possible
promote his general comfort. The names thus
obtained are reported at our “Head Quarters,”
with the name of the hospital nn<l number of
the iraril and bed in which eacli each patient
is to be found; then these names are entered
upon the register for the State to which they
severally belong. The subsequent changes,
return to duty, and discharges or deaths are
also duly reported and entered. The registers
being oj>en for public inspection, any person,
by application at our rooms, may readily ols
tain the exact location of their friends from
New England.
If a patient is very ill, and not likely to re
cover, the relatives or friends are notified, and
the necessary instructions obtained as to the
disposition of the body in case of death, in the
event of which, if desired, we have the body
embalmed and forwarded according to the in
structions received, provided the family or
friends defray the ex|>euses, which vary ac
cording to the distance from $30 to $45. No
charge is ever made for the services rendered
by the association.
The number of soldiers whose names are on
our registers at the present time is about 2000,
a large proportion of whom we have aided in
in one way or another. The donations of
money and clothing, thus far received, have
mostly been contributed by natives of New
England, resident in this city; but the daily
increasing demand now compels us to ask aid
from other sources, and we (eel that we have
but to make known our wants to New England
people at home, to so till our treasury, and
stock our storeroom, that we shall be enabled
to supply every worthy applicant. We there
fore respectfully solicit from individuals and
•Aid Societies” donations of money, hospital
stores, and clothing ot all kinds, especially
flannel shirts and drawers (red or gray), and
woolen stockings. The demand for these lat
ter articles is much greater than ice can sujt
vly, yet the necessity fur their be inn sumdied
in too apparent to need stating. All urticles
of clothing tee give directly to the patient.
Wines, jellies and preserves we mark with the
patient's name ami give them in charge of the
“Lady Matrons” of the hospital, to be given
out under the direction of the surgeon of the
ward; therefore donors may feel assured that
no article is misapplied, but that the sick or
wounded soldier for whom it was intended gets
the full benefit of every article sent to us lor
distribution. Articles lor hospital use, such as
Shirts, Drawers, Dressing-gowns, Slippers,
Lint, Bandages, etc., are also solicited, and
they will be distributed to such points as our
visitors find most needy.
Donations sent to us for general distribution
from other than New England States, will be
gladly received and faithfully given out, accor
ding to instructions, or to those most in want.
By the term “General Hospital” being ap
plied to each one, the impression has obtained
throughout the country that we have only one
immense hospital here. The fact is, however,
that we have about twenty, accommodating
from 150 to 2000 patients each; therefore, a
letter directed to the “lT. S. General Hospital,
Philadelphia,” rarely reaches the patient to
whom it is addressed. Those who do not know
the exact one to which to direct their letters
should send them to the care of this associa
tion, who will have them promptly delivered.
We cannot close this circular without add
ing what we feel sure will afford comfort to
those who have relatives or friends in the hos
pitals in this city, viz: The assurance that the
medical treatment and nursing which they re
ceive is generally good, ami that in most in
stances the latter is almost equal to what
could be given them at home, (in many cases
even better,) excepting of course the soothing
care of the affectionate mother, w ife, or sister.
Yet the absence of even these is in a great
degree supplied by a noble band of truly
Christian women, “Lady matrons,” whose vol
untary devotion to the care and comfort of the
invalid soldier commands the admiration and
approbation of every benevolent heart. Dur
ing his severe illness they sit by Ids bedside
and endeavor to releive his pain or soothe his
anguish, They w rite for him, read for him,
and, if requested, pray for him. They also
prepare for him those little delicacies so essen
cial to his condition, and during his conval
escence cheer him with their smiles and guide
him by their counsels. The term “Lady mat
ron” will hereafter be a syuonyme to many
for “Angel ot Mercy.”
Communications may be addressed to the
Superintendent. Correspondents should in
close a return stamp.

Esq., Acting Engineer in charge of the Maine
and Massachusetts Eight House Districts.—
If Mr. Sumner ever publishes a new edition of
his well-known speech on the “Barbarism of
Slavery,” we think he can find a new and
striking illustration iu the fact that, iu the
slaveholders’ rebellion, they destroyed no less
than 128 Light Houses, Light Boats, and Bea
cons ; which was the otUcial number so re
ported by the Light House Board.
The evening papers yesterday contained no
later telegraphic intelligence from Fredericks
burg, and, in fact, not so late intelligence as
we gave yesterday morning. The telegraphic
reports were accounts of the battle on Friday
and Saturday, sent to the New York papers of
Monday by special corresjiondents. These
rejiorts do not vary from the dispatches we
have before published, though more particular
in the details. Thu correspondent of the New
York Herald sjicaking of the battle of Satur
day gives the following account of General
Franklin’s attack:
Stonewall Jackson occupied the right wing,
Lougstreet the centre, Gen. Lee and Stuart
the lelt, while Gen. A. P. Hill's corjis acted as
the reserve. *
Lee’s reason for occupying the left was lie
cause he could be on his guard against Sigel,
who threatened to outflank Him by way of
The entire rebel force was estimated at
200,000 men, and occupied a front of not less
than 20 miles, The troops were tor the most
|iart veterans who hail fought through the pe
ninsula campaign, while the officers were the
ablest the South could produce.
The disposition of the Union forces occupied
the whole of Friday night and Saturday morn
ing, and Gen. Burnside was anxious to com
mence the attack at as early an hour as jiossi
ble. Saturday morning came with a dense
fog; however, the disjiosition of the Union
forces had been made, and Gen. Burnside de
termined to commence ojierations, fog or no
fog. On the left Franklin moved his column,
consisting of the 1st and tith corps, just before
Skirmishing commenced a few minutes after
daylight on the extreme left. A rebel battery
opened on our troops, and the Uth New York
State Militia regiment was ordered to charge
and lake the cannon at the point of the bayo
net. The order was obeyed with alacrity, but
after a tierce struggle they were compelled to
fall back.
At this critical moment Gen. Tyler came to
their aid with a brigade. Assisted by Tyler's
brigade, another attempt was made to storm
the rebel batteries, but without success. —
The tight now became general on the efl
ireme ten, atm another desperate enon writ
made to capture the rebel battery by General
Tyler’s brigade, but the fire of the reltels was
so withering in its effect our brave fellows
were unable to gain any advantage.
By noon, the whole of Franklin's corps en
gaged the enemy, and a desperate effort was
made to turn the enemy's position and drove
him beyond the creek. Gen. Franklin com
manded tin; movement in person. The reltels
maintained possession of some small hills, but
gradually fell back.
During the afternoon the reltels came to a
stand, and for a time assumed the offensive,
but were bravely met and repulsed with heavy
loss. It was at this time that some 300 of
Hill's command fell into our hands.
The enemy contested every foot of ground,
and it was only by the hardest kind of fight
ing that he would be compelled to change his
Tlie obstinacy with winch the reltels held
possession of their ground rendered General
Franklin’s task a very difficult one. He bad
to cope with Stonewall Jackson, hut the Union
commander was- not discouraged.
He had driven the enemy back several roils,
and old Stonewall met his match this time,and
at sundown Franklin had succeeded in driving
the enemy nearly a mile, and his troops occu
pied the Held during the remainder of the
night. The movement on the left was a com
plete success.

Commercial Bulletin took passage for Eng
land on the same steamer with Maury and
other rebels.

Deafness Ccekd.—Mrs. M. G. Brown will be at

A remarkable case of deafness cured in twenty four
hours by Mrs. M. G. Brown, Professor on the E e
and Ear. and proprietor of Poor Richard's Eye Water.
