THE DAILY PRESS.
POBTLAJTD, MAINE Monday Uornlng, Dec. 29, 1862. ___ ^ --- The Portland Daily EreBB has the largest regular circulation of any daily paper in the city. The Advertiser tor 1863. A few weeks since the Press had occasion to allude to the prospectus of the Advertiser for the coming year, and make some remarks M to the real character of that paper. Had not its course been foreshadowed in the pro spectus it could not have l>een misunderstood. Us editor-in-chief boasts that, however timid others may be, he hits courage and dares pub lish his sentiments. The readers ol the Ad vertiser have hud timely and explicit notice that it will not only oppose the Administra tion, but openly justify the rebellion. As the rebels are fighting for slavery, the only ground on which loyal men can meet the Issue is that of freedom. Slavery and the re bellion are Inseparable. The President has be. come convinced that the only way to over come the one is to destroy the other. He hits to this end announced to the nation before the civilized world, that the coming New Yearshall be a year of jubilee to the slaves. With the morning light of its first day he will “proclaim liberty tbougliout the land to all the inhabi tants thereof,” and from that time the Ad vertiser will justify and delend the rebels in mlotueor inuaiic limit ttlftv POtfirl tfl fVir till* purpose of carrying out their infernal schemes. They may uot only continue to wage tbeir J abominable war, as they are now doing, blit ] they may resort to the most barbarous and savage measures of retaliation, as they threat- i en to do, and in the Portland Advertiser they ! will have an organ that will “dare” be their : advocate and defender. In proof of this we ; give au eutire paragraph, with its original italics and capitals, from an editorial which j appeared in that paper soon after the Presi dent issued ills preliminary proclamation of freedom. Its language is such as to leave no ! doubt of its meaning, nor of tlie downright treason in the heart of its author: “When tiie Federal government shall, of its own measure, assent to, or aid in the destine- | lion of any State constitution, or of any State institution rightfully existing under such eon- ■ stitution, as does the institution of slavery, it becomes, itself, a party to a revolution;— and every citizen is justified in renouncing i and opposing it, from that instant, os on usur pation and a despotism, and no longer as the j government acting under, or by authority of the Constitution or the Union. There is i neither rebellion, or treason, or crime, or der elictiou of duty, in fighting such an usurpa- j tion, by all the means that God and nature have pul at the command of the States, or of : individuals. One of “the meatts which God and nature ! will put at the command” of the rebels, if they see fit to use it, will be “retaliation.” This, indeed, they immediately proposed. Mr Semraes of Louisiana, introduced a resolution in favor of “retaliation” into the Confederate Congress, which was regularly referred to the Judiciary Committee. The following is the resolution, with a brief extract from the pre limina-y discussion on the same. Resolved by the t'ongveen of the Confederate Statert That the proclamation of Abraham Lincoln, Presi dent of the United States of America, .ssued in the city ol Washington, in the year 1862, wherein he de clare* "that on the tirst day • I Jsuuaty, In the year of our Loid 18C3. all persons held as slaves within any State, or designated parts of -a Slate, whereof the people shall he in rebellion against the United State*, shall be henceforih and foievef free." is lev. nlli.,1 «ki. Vllol... and as such is a gross violation of the usages of cir ill zed warfare, an outrage on the rights of private property. and an in r it a ion to an aJrncums servile war. and therefore should be held uti to the execra tion of mankind, and counteracted by such retalia tory measures as iu the judgment of the President miV be best calculated to secute its withdrawal or ar rest its execution. Mr. Clark of Missouri, moved that the reso lution be referred to the Committee on Foreign Attairs. He was in favor of declaring every citizeu of the Southern Confederacy a soldier, authorized to put to deatli every mail caught on our soil iu arms against the Government. Mr. Semtnes, of Louisiana, said that the res olution had not (teen drawn without reflection. The question of retaliation was exclusively an Executive oue. to be regulated by circumstan ces. But it was proper that the Legislative Department of the Government should express its approval of the retaliation contemplated by the resolution. Mr. Henry of Tennessee, said that the resin lutiou did not go far enough. He favored the passage ofa law providing that, upon attempt being made to execute the proclamation of Abrahutn Lincoln, we immediately hoist the “black flag,” and ptoclaitn a w ar of extermi nation against all invaders of our soil. Mr. Phelan of Mississippi, said that he had always been in favor of conducting the war uuder the “black flag.” If that flag had been raised a year ago, the war would be ended now. Of the same character is the following pre amble and resolution of the Virginia Legisla ture, introduced by Mr. Collier of Petersburg: Whereas Abraham Lincoln. President of the L'ui ted States, by his teceut pioe'smstion, is acting in stolid contempt of the principle of ptoperty in slaves, which is no less consecialed in the l_ piled Stales Con •fittuiou than iu ours, and is aiming, by said procla mation, to excite a servile instil reetiou in our midst r Resolved, therefore: That no person, within this State shall be heui to have committed any offence against the criminal lew , thereof, or shall In* tried or iaiprisoned, or be required to answer at auv time for an act done in driving from the state or potting to death, auv person with or without aims, who ma* he found on our soil, aiding in any tray to give effect to the fiendish purposes of said proclamation As strange as it may seetn, incredible indeed but for its own declarations, the Advertiser will justify these rebels in whatever they may do, even to the murdering of prisoners of war iu cold blood, as Clark and Phelan and Henry desire; or, moreover, to the same diabolical practice upon peaceful citizens, the “putting to death any person" found on their “sacred soli,” whether “with or without arms,” who is loyal to the government of the United States. And in all tins the Advertiser lias said, and of coarse continues to say, “there is neither re. hellion, or treason, or crime, or dereliction of dutyfor the government lias become “an usurpation,” which anything and everybody will be justified in not only opposing, but in “fighting,” and that, too, “by all the means that God and nature have put at their* com inaiid.” While our citizens may he obliged to tolerate the publication of such a treasonous paper at their New England home, is it at all surprising that they should refuse to patronize it? No wonder its proprietor complains of what he calls “an abolition raid” on its sub scription list. tv Our correspondent, “Kennebec,” who proposes that county or town lists of “traitors” he made out and printed for the information of future generations, has not elaborated his plan sufficiently. Before you can euroll your trai tor, you must catch him; and that, we need not tell “Kennebec,” is no easy matter, they Will lie so! They are all loyal by profession— none more so; and it is really matter for con gratulation that the temper of the people is such as to forbid any open declaration of sym pathy with the South. But, alter all, what purpose would the proposed catalogue s-ave? Will not the next and subsequent generations have quarrels enough of their own to settle? or must we provide them with seasoned,tough old feuds, all ready for use ? Be quiet, do! It U evident that those democratic politicians and papers that have been loudest In coinpluint because McClellan was removed, are smarting with rage because Burnside is likely to outride the storm they thought to raise.

Borland, from Liverpool 11th and Londonderry 12th,arrived at this port about 8.0’clock Sunday morning. She brought 25 cabin and 04 steerage passen gers, and an assorted cargo for Portland, Bos ton, New York and Canada. The Bohemian touched at St. John, N. F., Wednesday. The steamship Caledonia, Irotn j Glasgow for this port, put into St. John, N. F., i Thursday, for coal. We are indebted to Mr. Spencer, Purser of the ship, for London and Liverpool papers.— The. main points of news have been anticipat ed by the arrival of the Europe at Halilax. Purser Spencer reports that in lat. 55, Ion. 17, took oil the crew of brig Marina, of Dun dee, from Montreal for Dundee, leaving the brig in a sinking condition. Atlantic & St. Lawrence railway stock is quoted in the London Daily News at $65 to $67, with sales at $67. The Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, by a vole of 40 to 21, have passed the resolution in favor of tlie proposition to exempt private property nt sea from capture. The prospectus of the Anglo Indian Cotton Company had been issued. The capital is half a million sterling. The object is to pro mote the growth of superior qualities of cot ton in eligible localities, from acclimated New Orleans seed. Mr. Lentham, member of Parliament from Huddersfield, had addressed his constituents lu.wrtli /in A mnrinan o \... U,. Iv.lt.1 the North right and the South wrong; and that the war was sure to result in the subju gation of the Confederates. He lamented the animosity of the North towards England, be lieving it due, in a great measure, to the pains England took to misrepresent herself. He predicted the warmest friendship yet between the two countries, and the most beneficial re sults for mankind. Diplomatic documents, relation to Mexico, had been submitted to the Spanish Senate. Among them is a dispatch of Seuor Collante's, demanding that the treaty of London should be again put in force; and ottering in the name of Spain to send back troops to Mexico, if France and England approved this new plan. France replied that it accepted this idea, but adjourned the realization ol it until after the entry of the French troops into the city of Mexico. The national sulfrnges in Greece continued almost everywhere favorable to l’rince Allred, who in capital and provinces had already re ceived 70,000 votes. The National Assemby would meet in a few days, when the claim of tile candidate to the throne, recommended by the Three Powers, (King Ferdinand of Portu gal,) would cotne before them.

From the Army of the Potomac—From the Hebei Army and Hicbmond. New York, Dec. 27. The Herald's special Washington dispatch says all our sick have been brought from Fal mouth. The. request for transportation is so great, thut outside supplies cannot be lorward ed to the army. Our troops have already made many rude wooden structures for shelter. An old lady arrived here yesterday from Fredericksburg, having been passed into our lines under a Hag of truce by Gen. Longstreet to meet her husband, who is a Union refugee from that city. She reports that the rebel sol diery treated the property of the citizens quite as bad as tile Yankees, and that only one per son not connected with the army was killed at Fredericksburg—a woman who was enciente. She says the leaders of the rebel army are constantly promising the soldiers to lead them through Maryland and go into winter quarters in Philadelphia. She was in liichmoud not long ago, uud represents the scarcity of shoes and oilier necessary articles of w earing appar el as almost incredible. From Kentucky—Morgan takes Possession of Glasgow—Hebels Repulsed near Cave City. Loi'isville. Dec. 2(5. John Morgan, w ith a force ol about 3UU cav ■mlry, eutered Glasgow on Wednesday. Three companies of the se-siud Michigan cavalry op posed bis entrance, but leii back on Munlbrds v>lle, having lost one captain and two privates. The rebels were then reinforced,and remained in possession of Glasgow. On Thursday, Colonels Gray and Shanks at tacked the rebels at Hear Wallow, Hart Coun ty, near Cave City, the rebels having previous ly damaged the railroad near Glasgow Junc tion. At the last accounts the Federate had driven off the reliels, killing one and taking sixteen prisoners, but sustaining no loss them selves. a train of ammunition cars which left here this morning was fired into near Nolen, and had to return. \T/t Viul'villft ti'iaunitrpr truin !«•<> linen lliiu morning. Telegraphic communication between here anil Nashville was interrupted this afternoon. Critical Condition of the French Army in Mexico.—Rumored Death of Rebel Gen. Crittenden. New York. Dec. 27. A special dispatch to the Times says official information has reached Washington that the condition of the French army of invasion of Mexico is considered critical. Its ranks are being thinned by sickness unil the want of wholesome food. It is said that agents have been sent to this country to obtain supplies, the furnishing of which has lieen protested against by the Mexican Minister; it is under stood, how ever, that Secretary Seward declines to interfere. It was rumored in Nashville, Dec. 20, that the rebel General George li. Crittenden died in Knoxville oil the preceding day. Rebel Jeff. Thompson at Pocahontas with his Forces.—Death of ex-Gov. Jackson. St. Locis, Dec. 2d. Advices received here at headquarters from Pilot Knob, are to the effect that a deserter from Col. Green's rebel regiment reports Jeff. Thompson at Pocahontas with between 5000 and 0000 infantry, mostly Missouri and Arkan sas troops; also two regiments of cavalry and one battery. The deserter left Pocahontas last Monday. Reliable information has been received that Claiboru F. Jackson, the deposed Governor of Missouri, died at Little Rock, ArkansaCabout the 8th inst. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. During the month of November 12, 000 bales of rags were shipped from England for the United States. We understand that the Bridgton Re porter and the printing office connected with it, are offered for sale. y&~ It is reported that Maj. Gen. Fremont J is to assume command of the Mississippi expe dition, now organizing at Memphis. The army correspondent of the New York Times, says Gen. Burnside’s army will | not go into winter quarters. The colored people of Worcester, Mass., will celebrate the approaching freedom ; of their race by a public meeting on New Year’s day. Our correspondent “T. S. P.,” is as sured that tlie paper to which he refers was promptly sent, and we have not another copy on hand. lie shall hear from us in a few days. The recent victory of Gen. Foster in North Carolina was complete, and is of vastly more importance than our people, in the en grossment of their attention by matters nearer home, have imagined. 2: jf™ Quilp, of the Boston Post, upon learn ing that preserved meats and tomatoes had been sent to our soldiers at Newbern, ex claimed,‘‘Well, those must be very acceptable provisions, to-murfyrs.” B3T”The St. Croix river is still open, says the Herald, the cold not having been thus far severe enough to freeze it over. Last Sunday morning the thermometer indicated 20 degrees ; below zero, but since then it has been milder. The Bangor Whig reports the arrival • at St. Thomas of the brig Hampden, of Ban gor, previously said to have been seized and confiscated by the French authorities for sig- ' nalizing the movements of the Alabama to | the San Jacinto, while lying in the harbor of 1 Martinique. New Publications.—Mrs. Richard's new book entitled “Springs of Action,” and the memoirs 01 Mrs. uetnune, by her son, the Rev. Geo. W. Bethune, have lieen briefly no ticed in the Press as new puiilications by the ( Harpers. They are for sale in this city by H. I L. Davis, 53 Exchange street. 'f The Bangor Whig says that on the ; 21st inst. Dea. Jeremiah Ehlridge, an old and highly esteemed citizen of Brewer, while su perintending the funeral of Mr. Pritchard of that place, was suddenly struck down with neuralgia of the heart, and died before the procession hail left the house. 3F“ Who can doubt that the majority of democratic leaders think more of destioying Halleck and Stanton than of putting down Jell Davis and rebellion ?—that they prefer de feat of the loyal troops to success accomplish ed by Generals who will not become subservi ent to their base purposes ? The editor of the Augusta Age, in a conversation with us the other day, alluded to the report of his yoking his paper with New man’s Halloweil Courier, and scouted the idea. Daniel lias done a good many things that we would not like to be held responsible for, but he has never done anything so de grading as that would be. Large orders have been received for the new translation of M. Cochin's work on the “Results of Emancipation,'’ to supply the demand in the Departments and at the Capitol at Washington. It hus even been proposed to have an edition published for general distri bution, so importaut is the information which could thus be sent over the land. If we could have our way we would not put the grumblers, and carpers, and fault flnders, either in Fort Preble or Fort Warren^ but such ol them as are able-bodied we would strap to a cartridge-box, clothe them in light blue, put a musket in their hands, and give the country the benefit of their mind and their muscle. Tlie Bangor Times says the Army of the Potomac is now strouger, by many thou sauds than even before the late battle, and it l,.»„ *v,,...l.i ....a... — i, i.. fought before, putting to rest forever the slan derous insinuations that the troops were de moralized and disheartened by the recent change of commanders. Git and Coasting.—Two young men coast ed half-way down the White Mountains the present winter on hand-sleds. They passed the distance of four miles in nineteen and a half iniuutes, and the lost two miles in two and a half minutes. The uew mountain road may yet have attractions in winter os well as j in summer. It would be a flue trip to ride up in a sleigh to the summit and then slide down in a few moments on a hand-sled. £IT" The Advertiser of.Saturday denies the inconsistency of the doctrines put forth by its editor in his speech before the Fremout club j in 1850, w ith those which have graced that paper of late: and insists, virtually, that he has not changed; that he stands now where he did then and stood then where he does now on the slavery question. How a man dares i twist around in this manner at the risk of breaking his neck is past our comprehension. We will attend further to his case in a few ! days. What shall we nrv?—This is the ques tion which agitates the minds of parents just now; and we advise those on whom the usual holiday demands will lie ma le, to step into the bookstore of Bailey & Noyes, fully believing that the number and variety of books to be found there will satisfy the most difficult.— | They have a flue assortment in the uiost i splendid bindings, as well as all the standard publications in less showy but more useful I covers. If you want photographic Albums, it is the place to buy at Bailey & Noyes. For the Juveniles they have replenished their counters, and Young America cannot fail to find something to please. Besides these no doubt a good variety of fancy goods may j be found to tempt the buyer. It is well worth the time spent in examining this collection of | holiday goods. 1>K. 1*. 1*. ol'lMBY. would give notice that he ha returned to I’ortlaud, and cau be found at his Boom, i No. 13 International Horns, Tuesday, August 12th, where he will attend to all wishing to consul him.

TIIE WORD “SOZODONT" is derived from the Greek word8*oz0(topre8crve)andodonfe'«(theteetb); Sozodont, "A Preserver of the Teeth." FRAGRANT SOZODONT, ONLY TRUK DENTIFRICE KNOWN. The public have long been in want of some couve. nient, safe and beneficial deutifrice which could be relied on as having a healthy and preserving effect on the teeth and gums. Hundreds of worthless prepar- ; ations have already been offered as such in the forms j of powder, pastes and liquids, when a trial has only proved them injurious to the enamel of the teeth, or else too inconvenient and unpleasant for daily use, so indispensable to the preservation of the teeth. The Sozodont is offered with all confidence as a lleautifier and Preserver of the Teeth, a scientific combination, every ingredient of which is known to have a bench- J cial influence on the teeth ami gums, iiupartiug a de- i lightfully refreshing taste and feeling to the mouth, correcting all disagreeable odors arising from decay ed teeth, use of tobacco, Ac. Its fragrance and con venience make it a pleasure to use it; it is perfectly free from all acids or other ingredients having the least tendency to injure the enamel, and recommend ed by mauy of the most eminent dentists, chemists, physicians and scientific geutlemen of the day. Read testimonial from a large majority of the first I Druggists and Apothecaries in this city, many of whom have personally used the Sozodont, and well | know its merits: We, the tuulersigned, Druggists and Apothecaries ! of Boston most cheerfully testify that we have sold I lor some time past the dentifrice known as VAN BUS- ; KIRK’S SOZODONT, and find it gives entire satis- j faction to our customers; and we believe it to be what its title indicates, • A Preserver of the Teeth”— an elegant toilet article, well worthy the encomiums ! it has received iu New York, Bostoii, and other large cities: G.
