THE DAILY PRESS.
PORTLAND MAINE Wednesday Mornlne, May 1-1,1863· the circulation of the Daity Pros* is larger than that of any Other daily in the city. TuRsts,—V 1.00 α jfeat \f paid rei/hin thrrr mnnthe from the date <\f »nbttriplion, or #7.00 at the end <lf tin feme. Compulsory bot I'nplensant Conviction. In reading the comments of the Copperhead press upon Hooker's late oi>erations near Fredericksburg, one Irresistible conviction is forced upon the minds of loyal men,viz: that the authors οΓ such comments secretly chuckle and rejt>ice over his alleged failure, and very Illy succeed in their efforts to conceal such di abolical satisfaction. Another conviction is forced upou the mi nil: that the Copperheads Are vastly more anxious to vindicate McClellan than to vindicate the authority of the Govern ment; more anxious to put down Hooker, and every other military mail who hits doubted McClellan, than to put down either tlie rebels or their rebellion. Hear the Argus in its flings and inuendoes at a man who has shown a will ingness to strike heavy blows against the re bellion, and who carries the sears upon his own person received on lite bloody Held of Antietam : rerhape the purpow may bethuatodivert attention from tlif short-coiniiw of Hooker That boapttiil and ungencioue critic of utiier general* now liai, much need of the charity which he wad not accus tomed U> show to others. The same paper greedily gobbles down the following bit ot offal, «Hatched from that fam eus repository of carrion, the New York Her ald: Joe Hooker is not a competent |M>i>on to criticise tbe campaigns of Ueneral McClellan The other Copperhead paper in the city goes farther, and appropriating this tainted boue from the Herald, aud working it over in to a very dainty dish, reproduces it ai follows : OvaTnixo Dû-mien.—'The recent operations on tlir Rappahannock have decided that t*en. Hooker is not a competent witness again*! Gen. Mc< ieilan. The last referred to paper has several short but significant articles, all charged to the brim with spite against the commanding General of the Potomac Army, declaring that he is in capable of handling a large army, making in vidious comparisons, and boasting of McCiel lan's superior genius in this respect, criticising bis operations, and indulging in the most un mistakable gratification over his failure to do more ; though it is a notorious fact, as the events have shown, that even if Hooker's late operations have not been all that could be de (Ired, they have equalled, in all respects, Mc Clellan'* most brilliant efforts. The worship ers| of McClellan will| search in vain, iu his whole record, for results more advantageous to thi Union cause than those which have fol lowed Hooker's recent operations on the Rap pahannock. >vuo can ιαιι to see in sucu items as we nave copied, the straws that indicate the direction of the wind? Who double that the wish is lather to the thought with the papers referred to, and that their desire to hare a political fa vorite restored, it infinitely stronger than tbeir desire to have Hooker succeed In con quering the rebels ? And who can doubt that the regard of the copperheads for McClellau —those who constantly oppose the war and clamor for peace, peace even at the expense of intervention—is based on his supposed inac tivity, and the belief that, if he were in com mand, there would be no more vigorous pros ecution of the war? We are glad to see the copperheads showing their hand. It is a good sign when malignant forms of disease come to the surface. They can be better guarded against. If Hooker's future moves should prove successful these base taunts will come back to trobule those who have uttered them. Like chickens they will come home to roost. Then his criticisms upon McClellan wilt pos sess redoubled weight and force. We bring this brief article to a close by quoting from the Boston Herald—a Democrat ic paper — whose editor was but recently supported by the Democracy of Massachusetts for the office of Lieut. Gov. of that state. Referring to the recent attacks of the copper heads upon Hooker, the Herald characterizes them as "damnable, aud should be frowned "down by every loyal man in the country. " Hooker has fought bravely, leading his army " in person, exposing himself to the fire of the "enemy. The wretches who abuse Hooker " deserve to be shot. His name will heuce " forth be a terror to the rel»el hordes as it will " be revered by every lover of his country," Maine Third—Killed and Wouxded.

The following note from Mrs. Eaton, dated Thursday, May 7th, at the front, will show how she and Mrs. Fooo had been employed during the week previous, and the inconceiva ble importance of their labors. "We are pretty well, considering what we have been through, not having had our clothes oil' till last night (Wednesday) since last Thursday. 1 cannot describe my feelings to day, neither eau 1 describe the painful, agoniz ing scenes through which we have passed. 1 trust we have been permitted to save many lives by providing nourishment lor those who were tx-ing carried so many miles to the Gen eral Hospital. Day before yesterday (Tuesday) we were ordered to leave the hospital at United States Ford, and 1 left with our team, and Mts, Fogg waited for an ambulance train for which she would prepare supper. A terrific storm of bail atui rain, thunder and lightning put the roads in such a condition that 1 was obliged to slop in the road. We turned up to a house and found it tilled in every corner with wounded men. The top of our ambulance was not proof against such a storm and i was completely drenched, (yes, to my skin, as they say). It was about IV o'clock (night), aud I went into the house and the Surgeons gave me a blanket iu which X rolled myselt and laid down in one corner of a little attic, with the wounded men. At 5 o'clock I rose, and had the satisfaction, through this providential de tention, of preparing a breakfast of coffee, soft crackers aud beef soup for one hundred aud titty ahn ist starving wounded men, for whom they had no other means of procuring a single mouthful! I arrived at our old camp about 10 o'clock, and Mrs. Fogg came iu about an hour after. We were shelled out of our hospital and obliged to leave it in hot haste about 5 o'clock Tuesday moruing with the fearful tilings screeching over our heads. Two men were killed near us, others wounded. From present appearances, and what we hear this afternoon, there will be another movement immediately. There are two or three rumors with reference to the next move ment: perhaps the telegraph will have an nounced it before this reaches you." With reference to supplies. Mrs. Eaton says: " Although of some articles we have a good supply, of others we are nearly destitute, such as jellies, preserves, wines, salt flsh, but ter, indian meal, &c. In case of a battle, lurye supplies aie needed. The want that is felt then is almost overwhelming." Letter from a Portland Officer. Below we publish a private letter written by an officer of tlie U. S. Sharpshooters to his mother of this city. The writer was in the re cent battle at Chaocellorville, and during his term in service be has fought under the follow ing distinguished commanders, viz: Shields, Fremont, Banks, McDowell, McClellan, Bum side, and Hooker—the two last at Federicks burg. More than this; he was a great admirer of McClellan, of whom he had reason to think well, for he was promoted on the Held by Mc Clcllan for gallaut service at Antictaui. The testimony of such a man should not be lightly esteemed : Camp nkahStonkm an's Station, Va., I Co. 1>, U. S. Sharp Shooters, May 7, 18(53. J My Dear Mother:—I am all tired out and you must not expect me to say much this time. Hereafter if I live you shall have full particu lure ; let it suffice for the present to say that the Sharp Shooters have covered them selves with glory; at least Gen. Sickles said so to tis shortly after we took t.he 2Sd Georgia regiment entire, prisoners. Sickles says we are grape, canister anil bullet proof, and the Ikijs cheered,him well for it. The 17th Maine . was our reserve, but we did not need or call for them. It is really laughable to see and hear the 17th Maine, from Col. Morrill down to the lowest rear rank private, talk about the Sharpshooters. They all think it very strange that any of us are alive. The rebels shelled us steady for two hours and kept pouring vol leys of musketry into us steadily and we ad vancing on them all the tiine. Finally wo double quicked into them without knowing what we were going into,anil took all the reg iment that were alive prisoners. Hooker i* the braeest, auiarteat anil moat xkillful ijeneral that ever commanded thin army. ;y"The Bangor JefTcrsonian learns that Frank V. Holmes, of the fith Maine, who was killed in the recent battle of Chanccllorville, was a nephew of Vice President Hamlin.

The next term begins on Tuesday, 20th instant. Zjf*" Lieut. A. B. Twitchell, of the 5th Maine Battery, of Bethel, arrived in this city yesterday. He had the fingers on his. left baud shot off, and received a severe blow upou one of his kneepans. Capt.

The man may be born who will tear down the new edilices becan.su of their old fashioned appearance. jy™The Copperhead worshipers of McClel lan had much to say about Pope's ridiculous ami highl'alutin orders,' and his |>ompous and boastful promises, and now one of the copper head papers in this city talks about Hooker's "fulsome flourishes about what's poing to be do.ie." Perhaps these gentlemen have forgot ten that both Pope and Hooker had illustri ous examples of the "lulsoine," the pompous and the highl'alutin, and that long before they issued any orders another General of some re nown had indulged largely in the same strain. We happen to have the order before us of one Geo. IS. McClellan, issued at the time lie took the Held as commander of the Army of the Potomac, and for the purpose of refreshing the minds of our copperhead friends perhaps we may produce it in the course of a few days. It is a full match for Pope's most rampant bull. Sy~From an article in the Evening Post we infer that the Canadians have been severe ly duped in relation to the quality of our American silver coin. It seems that a pletho ra of such coin tioublcs our provincial neigh bors—all in consequence of easily explained causes—and now they have taken fright from the impression, somehow suddenly created, that this coin is basely alloyed, and is but lit tle better than Gerinau silver. The conse quence is a heavy discount in some portions of the province on American silver, and a dis position on the part of the deluded people to get rid of it as speedily as possible. A corres pondent of the Montreal Witness labors to disabuse his Canadian readers, and shows that the intrinsic value of American silver coin is 97 1-2 cents to the dollar, and that "if the Can adian government were to issue a currency of the same weight and quality, it would cost them ninety-seven and a half per cent, for the inclal, in addition to the expense of coining and shipping charges in importing it; in other words, thfy tcoulil iasue it at a Ions." £y"The multiplication of church chimes in some (tortious of London has become a per fect nuisance, and unfavorably alfects the value of real estate in the localities. One of the London journals thinks they might not be unwelcome in the silence of the Essex marshes, and suggests that, "if put to the vote, not a few London parishes would gladly present the uproarious peals now in use, together with a proper quantity of beer, to get rid of thein." The New York Evening Post, whose editor is one of our popular poets, and is presumed to have an ear for harmonies, says, "any person whose misfortune it is to live within sound of the hideous clangor made by w hat is called a chime of bells will cordially support this pro test" of the London paper. "A more unmiti gated nuisance," continues the Post, "cannot be suffered, and we wonder that the resident* of the neighborhood do not combine together to prosecute the offenders. Three or lour bells, generally harsh or shrill when they are jangled out of tunc, as they commonly are, get to be ιιιιτυινιιιυινι « " "" »"»»« ; Ι··ΜΟΙ< υν >UI agony whenever tliey are rung.'' (•rape· Canister and Shrapnell· An otttcer ot the Fourteenth Mass. regiment recently communicated the following interes ting allele to a Lawrence paper: Orape, consists of nine shot arranged in three layers, whieli vary in size according to the calibre of the gun; they are held together by two plates of about 1-14 in. less diameter than the calibre of the gun, two rings, a bolt and nut.—The canvas bag arrangement is too old for this war, it is not so simple or durable and has not been used lor years. Canister lor a gun, contains 27 small cast iron balls, arranged in lour layers, the top of 0, the remainder of Τ each; lor a Howitzer it contains 42 small iron balls in four layers of twelve each; for the same calibre you will see that the balls for canister are smaller than grape. The envelope lor canister is a tin cyl inder, closed at the bottom by a thick cast-iron plate or a wooden sabot and at the top by a sheet-iron plate with a handle attached, the in terstices between the balls are closely packed with sawdust to prevent crowding when the piece is llred. Shrapnell consists of a very thin shell, which is tilled with musket balls, the interstices are then tilled by pouring in melted sulphur, a hole is then bored through the mass of sulphur and bullets to receive the bursting charge. Now to explain the difference between a "Shrapnell" or "Spherical Case" and a "Shell." The destructive force of a Shrapnell is what it receives from the charge in the gun, the powder in the Shrapnell being only to break the envelope and spread the balls, they still moving forward by force of the impulse they received from the charge in the gun. A Shell is made very much thicker than the envelope of Shrapnell and is nearly tilled with powder, and will do great execution if it ex plodes on the ground, it having destructive ■pialities in itself aside from the charge in the gun. A Shrapnell Shell has only half the charge of powder that a Shell proper has ; thus a 24 pounder Shrapnell centaines 175 musket balls, li ounces of powder and weighs 22.7.1 lbs. A 24-pounder Shell has 12 ounces of powder ami weighs 111.75 lbs. A (5-pounder Shrapnell has 39 musket balls and 2.5 ounces of powder.
