My Dear Sir: 1 once went hunting, and fired at a mischievous, chattering chipmunk, and found when the smoko had cleared away, that the chipmunk, although badly wounded, made u great pretence that he was not hurt at all. Rut, strange : to say, when firing at the lesser game, I [ hud hit a fox, and that fox, one of the | most cunning, destructive animals that; had ever julpsted the neighborhood.— I j Would you believe it, [ never stopped to j listen to the chipmunk, but loaded again | for the fox. j Now, Judge, the moral: Without a word or an act on my part to justify it, you attacked me, and I responded ; al though winged, you declared you are not I hurt, but the President and Secretary, I ! am informed, are badly hurt, the latter 'j mortally. The former so much so, that 11 shall let you flutter until 1 try another loud. Look on, Judge, be quiet, await your time ; I havo ammunition for both the fox and (lie chipmunk. In the Press, North American and In quirer, and in all the Republican newspa pers of the country, I have found the fol lowing : GENERAL naglee s letter ONK OF HIS STATEMENTS ABOUT PRESIDENT LINCOLN AUTHORITATIVELY DENIED. From the National Republican (official) Oct. 3, The copperhead press of the country! arc giving circulation to a letter addressed by General Naglee to lion. William D.! Kelley, of Philadelphia, in which the au- \ thor, speaking of Gen. McClellan, makes the following statement : , “So far as the objections to his military I qualifications are concerned, I have only ! to remind you that, within the last sixty ; days a confidential friend of the President j was sent to offer him one of the most im portant com mauds of t lie army But this ! proposition was coupled with the most da ; honorable condition—that he should de- I cliue to ho a candidate for the Presidency, j Gen. McClellan restrained his indignation ' j and repded to the hearer of the message, i ‘Co hack to Washington, and say to the President for me, that when I receive my official written orders fie shall have uo answer.* " We are authorized lo say, that the j President has no recollection of sending any message or messenger to Gen. Me- i Ciellau, or of rcceiviug any from him, at: ! any time since lie was relieved of the | command of the Army of the Potomac, and certainly none such as mentioned in the published letter of Gen. Naglee. 1( the President sent a message in writing, the writing eau be produced ; if a messen | ger, he can ho named. Let either he done i if it can. To this I answer, that before the as- ■ sem filing ol the Chicago Convention, about! iho middle of August, the President sent oil of his old and confidential friends to prop seTo General McClellan, that if he ; would decline to be a candidate for the I Presidency before the Chicago Conven ! tJO, and would consent to throw the j BEL AIR.

FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 21, 1864. weight of his influence, with the Demo- ] cralic party, in favor of the Republican I nominee, he should have any position, \ civil or military , in the <jift of the. Presi- [ I that when re-ele.cte.il, ami that the whole influence, of the next Administration should he thrown in his [McClellan's) favor for the succession. Pardon me, Judge, but hold still just one moment longer, that I may inform you, that prior to this, there was a written correspondence between the son of this con fidential old I'rierd of the President and a prominent Democrat, making substantial ly the same proposition. Now, in couneo ■ tion with the above, let me call the at-! tentimi of your friends to the following extract, from the published speech of the lion. Montgomery Blair, made since my letter to you of the 27th of September, | was written : “On bis (Vallandigham’s) motion, ev- | ery voice that had been raised to fury | against the nomination of McClellan, was | silenced, and the vote in his favor made unanimous. There was a potent spell in t his voice that made ‘a cessation of hostili- j ties,' ‘a Convention of the States,’ ofj course ns equals and independent, and a | quondam chief of the Federal army—(one whom to the list I believed to be true to the cause in which his country is embark ed, and, I may add, whom the President held to be patriotic, and had concerted with Gen. Grant to briny ntjain into the field as his adjunct, ij hi: turned his buck upon the proposals of the. peace junto at Chicaya ) —to lead the last assault pressed by the Southern conspirators, eountenan ced by foreign Powers, to overthrow the institutions of the country.” Let us rejoice. There is some hope for our country. Lot us rejoice tint we have found one honest man, one who would not sell himself and betray bis country, au l i who, amidst the most outrageous pcrsecu- j j tion that ever a strong government in-1 ] flieted upon a single, unsupported, inex- j perienoed young officer, had the courage ; tn resent a disgraceful bribe and insult.— ( ; You have affirmed and reaffirmed, that Me i Clellau had no plan, and that dually about j the end of February, in your own words, McClellan had exhausted the President’s stock of patience ; but that he the I kindness of his heart, determined to give McClellan a chance to redeem himself from utter ridicule, and had given him [ ten days in which to propose a plausible. 1 plan of a campaign. It was then “you | said ho bad no plan, and that when j seve-ul of the promised ten days had \ passed, he was still without a plan.”— j You further say that General Naglee j received a communication from a Dem ocratic Senator, Mr. Latham, of Cali fornia, which let yon (General Naglee) j know that Gen. McClellan was in danger I of removal, because be hud stipulated to submit a plan of campaign within acer- I tain number of days, and would be re i moved if be did not, and requested you | (Nagh e) to hasten to Washington.” And now, Judge, listen to the truth.— I No doubt, having indulged so freely in fiction, the truth will be a little distasteful to you, but, as a favor to me, listen to it until I have done, after which, as far as 1 am concerned, you may resume your natu ral inclinations. First, then, for the purpose of falsify ing your declarations read the following : Executive Mansion, | Washington, Feb. 3. 1802. \ J\Jy Dear Sir ; You and I have distinct and different plans for a movement of the Army of the Potomac; yoms to be done by the Chesapeake, up the Rappahannock to Urbanna, and across laud to the ter minus of the railroad on the York river ; i mine to move directly to a point on the I railroad southwest of Manassas. If you will give satisfactory answers to the f.dlowingquestious, I shall gladly yield my plan to yours : * Ist. Does not your plan involve a great j ly larger expenditure of lima and money \ than mine? 2d. Wherein is a victory more certain by your plan than mine!' 3J. Wherein is a victory more valuable , by your plan than mine? 4th. In fact, would it not bo less valua j ble in this : that it would b eak no great * line of the enemy’s communications, while mine would? stb. Iu case of disaster, would not a re treat be more difficult by your plan than mine? Yours, truly, Abraham Lincoln. Major General McClellan. i And for the further refutation and lal- I si Boa tion of what you have said, I hereby assert what I know to be true. Daring j the month of January, 18(52, Gen. McClel lan had been very ill. The President be came very restive under the outside pres | sure which demanded, through the Repute j lif an press, that the army should “on to Richmond,” and was about to consent to i some movement proposed by Gen. MeDuw ; ell. On beating tills, Geo. McClellan arose from his sick bed and proceeded to the Presidential mansion, there to join the President and his Cabinet, who bad been ! assembled to meet him. lie was asked by j the President “to yive his plan of cum j paiynP He hesitated fora moment, dur j j mg which he remembered that all inf.r --| mat ion furnished to the Cabinet found its i | way to the confidential friends "of s ane ot j I them, and thence by the multitude of spies j that infested the War and other Depart ‘ meats it was forthwith communicated to j the enemy, and he replied,' that he would I do so if the President ordered it, om as j the President mu-it know how immediate i ly such information wts tiaunmilted to the enemy, he, McClellan, preferred not to ! I make known his plan of campaign to the j Cabinet unless the President should order it, and the President declined to make J the order. Mr. Chase remarked to one present, j that if Mac persist in thus refusing infor mation, he is a ruined man. These circumstances occurred in Janu ary and on February 3d. Do you still intend to reaffirm’“that McClellan had no plan until the Democratic Senators, Mr. Latham and Mr. Rice, and a brigadier, from the column of Joseph Hooker, con ceded one, end packed a council of war to approve of it ?” oa the Bth of March there after. “Now, Judge, you will save yourself | and friends much confusion, winch you | have caused them in following you, if you ! would read, the orders and letters that have | | been published upon all of these military ! | subjects, and which may all bo found in I | your favorite work of the Committee on the Conduct of the War, or in Gen. Mc i Clcllau’s Report, which is not so great a i favorite with you. You evince again, the ! most extraordinary confusion when you as [ sert that the President gave him tan days to find a plan, and confound the orders I j have referred to with the following order | of the President: ‘Executive Mansion, ) . Washington, March 8, 1862. j “ President's General War Order No. 8. * * ♦ * ♦ S|C “That any movement as aforesaid, en route for a base of operations, which may be ordered by the Commander in Chief, and which may bo- intended to move upon the Ciie-apcake Bay, shall begin to move upon the bay as early as the 18th of March, lost., and the General in-Cbief shall be responsible that it moves as early as that i day. A. Lincoln. j “L. Thpmas, Adjutant General.” In which you will observe, ho did not i order Gen. McClellan to produce a plan ; within ten Jays as you assert, but that his movement should commence within ten days. After such documentary proofs under j the hands of the President himself, it will j not do for you to attempt to sustain your- j Self by imaginary conversation “with well - j known individuals.” Judge, if ever a! question of veracity comes up between ! you and myself, wo alone must settle j it, and you must not attempt to shuffle off | your responsibility, and place it upon oth- i ors. This may have been your practice j heretofore, and you may have so actol with | impunity, but rest assured it will not be permitted by me. You refer to some great suprise that General McClellan pro prosed to make on the rebel line at Brcnts ville, and you make out, uo doubt to your satisfaction, that the success of the sur prise depended entirely upon a certain bridge to be constructed of canal boats, that were to have been passed into the Potomac near Harper’s Ferry, and that it was found, when the movement was about to be made, that the outlet lock was too narrow fertile boats. Now, this surprise of Brentsville may be entirely clear to you and Senators Wade and Johnson, but to [ myself and to my military friends, we cun-1 not understand how the rebels in the di- j rectiou of Brentsville could have been sur- j prised by any movement iu the direction 1 indicated by you; but I suppose that that | is not important with you, your real ob ject being only to relate the story of that obstinate canal-boat, that had passed through all of the other locks upon the ca nal, hut refused, in the face of the enemy, to pass the outlet-lock. Did it over occur to you that an empty canal boat, in the hands of thousands of men, could be trans ferred down hill, from the canal to the riv-! er, with hut little difficulty, and that there might have been some other reason than the one assigned by you ? But, admitting ail that you claim, did it never occur to i you that it is not expected that the entire I detail, attending the movement of a large [ army, is to be superintended by the Gom- \ mander thereof in person ? I will even j grant you that iu theory you arc right, and | dial General McClellan should not have had officers attached to his staff, who ne glected to use every precaution to prevent taiiure. But be charitable—don t fail to I remember the awful disappointment when I that pontoon train failed to appear upon j the Rappahannock, and when the vials of wiath were poured, nut upon the head ofj the favorite of your party, Genera! Burn side, but upon those of Generals Ilalb-ck, j Meigs and Woodbury, and a rain bo onur itabie, and do not l_.il’to remember bow carefully you have aecrotid that more ter i rible blunder than ever occurred in the annals of this or any oilier war, by which we have no less than twenty three moni tors, constructed at an expense of over twelve millions of dollars, and which, by the nice calculations of the naval engineers brought in after one of them was launch- j ed, it wts determined that with their ar-i iiiament they would float Just foe inches > under water. ‘Now, ,)udge, who is respon- j si ble for ibis? Again be charitable.— | j But do not' fail fo remember that the President, and “Fighting Joe Hooker,” ! carefully concealed their plans even from 1 the (Joojoiundui-io-Chicf and the Secreta-1 ey of War to that esteul that, whilst the j I battle was going on at Chauccllorsvillc, j j 1 was informed d.rcotly by the best uu- | I thunty in the premises, “that neither | General Ilalleck nor the S.cretaay of War j knew more of what was going ou than 1 j uid,” ami “that- aii of the requisitions I made during the preparations for the movement, instead of going through the ordinary ca.in.neis, w< id . r-Jert-d directly I by fbe President ;" and do you not know j (hat, to the present hour, the country was never informed that, on that occasion, Hooker and the President fought the best j army that was ever got together, number i ing no less than’ one hundred and sixty five thousand men, against Geo. Lee, with an army of fifly-sevon thousand—lust thirty-five thousand men—were complete ly routed, and to such an extent that, as said before, but for the providential kill ing of Stonewall Jackson, our army would have been annihilated ? Why have you not told the country this, instead of the more pitiful story, that “the 11th Army Corps gave way in confusion.” . j Why did not your Committee op the | Conduct of the War exhaust a few of those f five hundred days, and a portion of those | seventeen hundred pages especially devoted ) to Gen. McClellan, upon the military suo j cesses of that, groat loader, Gen, Butler, be fore Petersburg, where six thousand of his men were marched prisoners into Richmond —almost without his knowledge—he and Mr. Stanton coolly assuring the country that there had been a great fog, and that it came before breakfast ? Before I leave your friend Mr. Stanton, j I will instance another evidence of his j treachery to Gen. McClellan. All know, of the disasters caused by the interference i of the President and Mr. Stanton with the Army of the Potomac, it was necessa ry to have a victim, and General McClel lan was selected and removed. A short time afterwards, Pope being placed in command, failed must disastrously, and Washington was again threatened. The President and his Cabinet were alarmed to that extent that a steamer was prepared and ready to assist iu their escape. With earnest entreaty and supplication, McClel lan was solcited to assume command and save them and Washington He consen ted—ignoring the solicitations of his friends, who desired that he should first insist upon the removal of Mr. Stanton, which he utterly refused, replying that ho would not permit any personal considera tions to influence his conduct when the I capital was in such imminent danger. He j then accomplished the greatest military j success of the war. Ho re-organized the I domoraiized army of Pope whilst ou the march, and gained the glorious vie ! tory of Antiotam. McClellan’s star was | again in the ascendant. Mr. Stanton beg ged forgiveness for the past, and promised j bis devoted friendship for the future. Again, General McClellan’s trusting j nature prevailed over the advice of hi* ; friends, and the treacherous conduct of Mr. Stanton was forgiven by General Mc- Clellan, only to be again mure wickedly betrayed than ever Washington was no sooner relieved and the President and bis Cabinet safe, than by the influence of Mr. Stanton, General McClellan was again removed from the command of the Army of the Potomac, when upon the verge of battle, and or dered into retirement. You cull up the ghosts of the departed I soldiers. Be assured, Geo. McClellan's j sleep will not be disturbed by them; but j what must bo the broken slumbers ef | those who are responsible for the tens of i thousan )s lost by Pope, and Burnside, j and Hooker, in attempting to carry out j what (he President calls his “plan; ’ and i the hundred and fifty thousand lost sim-e | the 4th of May, south of the Rapids u ; and what must be the dreams of the Pres- j ideut, who could, amidst the groans of the dying, that lay upon the gory field of Alitictaiu, cull fur the singing of a ribald song ? la times like these, we want some oth er than the weak and vacillating Presi dent, who assured Mr. Crittenden and the patriots who accompanied tiiui from Kentucky, that they might go home ami inform, their friends that he would not violate their rights and interests by any j proclamation of emancipation. Before ; these assurances could be transmitted to j the, people of Kentucky, bis promises had been broken, and just such a proelama i tion, violating all Ifiese pledges, was is i sued. If any Stale has done nobly, and earned distinction for pure patriotism under the most trying, dreadful sufferings of tb£ war, iu which a whole people have been ! despoiled, families embittered against faiu j ilies, find members of the same family against each other, to that extent that I ® • > • • • j harmony can never again prevail, it is the Slate of Kentucky; and if there was any j oneJStatc that should have had infiaot ce with the Administration, it was that State. But her voice, amidst the din ami blood of battle, has never been heard; or, if heard for the moment, it was soon lost under the influence of Massachusetts, aid ed by the demon yells of radical men, who cried out extermination, and in the same breath proclaimed a higher law than the Constitution, which they only de | nuunced as a covenant with hell, T|lu! people of the South are members of the same national family wi h us; they j must be brought back by continued force I if they will uot come back by consent.— But we must respect their rights, whatever they are. There is no more power iu .he President of the United States to control wha‘evcr right of property th re may re ; main to them in the slave on the day on i which they lay down their arms, than there is in the shciiff to insist that the j poor culprit, who has violated the law in I j the uio-l outrageous manner, shall be do-1 I prived of ins food or his clothing, prior to 1 his execution.

Churchill, Esq, : Dear Sir :—Your fuvUr of the 26th has this moment come to hand, in which you request my permission to publish my : letter to you of the sth inst. That letter, like all letters of mine, waf intended to be private; not because it I contained any sentiments which I wished to conceal, but simply because I had a great aversion to appearing in newspapers; but you seem to think its publication might do good to the conservative causa i —in which 1 confess I feel a very deep 'interest—and as 1 have received similar 1 information from other sources I have re* i luctar.tly come to the conclusion to permit it to bo published. The fact is, I see no reasonable pros pect of a restoration of this Union—the object nearest my heart—without a change of the avowed policy of this ndiuinistra (ration ; and I see no prospect of changing that policy but by a change of the admin istration itself. Hence 1 am for tha change, and I look upon the election of General McClellan as the last hope for the restoration of the Union, an honorable peace, and the security of personal prop erty ; and this you may publish to the world as my views on the pending crisis. But I shall enter into no argument in support of my opinion, nor do I intend hereafter to depart from that silence which I impose upon myself from an unwilling ness to mingle, or seem to mingle in party politics ; for I do not consider myself us belonging to any party, and 1 feel wholly indifferent to any party success as such, and am only anxious for the honor and welfare of my beloved, but bleeding and suffering country. I am in great baste, truly yours, Millard Fillmore. Buffalo, Sept. 5.
