THE GATE CITY.
K E O K U K FRIDAY A 7 'The Constitution sceata anxious to learu whether we approve the policy of the President in regard to the war. We certainly do in the main, and did from the fint, when the friends of the Constitution were threatening oval troops with "a fire ia the rear/' and the President with im peachment. We did not approve the sin gular reluctance of the President to invade the "aacred soil" of Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee, but we are sat isfied now that the President was con strained to wait vntii the aggresaions of the traitors of the South diminished the mtmber of sympathiaera in the North.— And during the whole progress of the war tjie President has been clogged and held back by traitors and conservative sympathisers, and has thereby been com pelled to move slowly and cautiously to ward the suppression of the rebellion.— Bat sinee the arrest of Geo. Jones, one of the favorite leaders of the conserva tive sympathiaera, the obstruct ton* in the way of tn effective and speedy prosecu tion of the war are mainly removed, and now it goes forward to our entire satis faction. It suits os when our troops are permitted to meet the enemy, to fight them and whip them, and drive them from post to post in disgraceful flight. Oar objection to Gen. McClellan,for whoniwe were disposed to entertain great adrnira tion six months ago, is that he has not carried out that policy where he has per sonal and exclusive control. And not withstanding our very hearty disapproval of Gen. Halleck's Third Order policy, we can overlook it in oar enthusiastic appre ciation of the effect ml and overwhelming manner in which his forces have been pushed forward to win victory and glory all along the line from Nashville, Tenn., to Xayetteville, Ark. With these views we regTet that our cotemporary can find nothing to admire in President Lincoln except in so far as he regards that Mr. Lincoln's policy may fa- Cliieaf* Cat He Market. The Chicago Tribune of the 5th says] the supply of beef cattle was light, and under a good demand (he market was 5rm —with sales of packing cattle at $2 60 @2 90, and shipping cattle at 92 80 3 40 for fair to extra. RAEN THI SIXTH IEVI BBOI* Mfcvr. TIPTON, MO., March 1. Somebody baa, in times past, and per haps on a similar occasion, said, "now is the wiuter of our discontent," and the same sage individual, I believe, made some remarks, by way of a warning, to "beware the ides of March." These cir c^ustanccs have led me to the conclusion that that individual, whoever he was, be longed to a volunteer regiment, and though his bosom swelled with patriotism and a desire to distinguish himself by seeking the bubble reputation at the can non's mouth, and although like the war steed he snuffed the battle afar off, yet all around him was provokingly quiet, and the enemy—if any there wus in his neigh borhood—were "unchivalrously and un gencrotftly" non combatant. I have been led to these reflections from the fact that while almost every gale bears upon its wings tidings of battle fought and glorious victories won upon the tented field, in which our brethreu of Iowa have been permitted to share and bear a noble and gallant part, her* we are, wasting the precious momenta, big with glorious camp events, in the dull monotony~of camp life, and guarding a Missouri town and a Mis souri railroad, while Missouri soldierB are winning the laurels abroad that should be our*. It may be all right, but if it is, 1 confess I can't sec the point. But 1 won't scold, much less blame any superior officer, for that would be unmilitary, and The dull monotony of camp was last Bight disturbed by an event. It was in tb£ L^!/ Telegraph. "Ct'PID HYMEN—TWO IIBARTK IN ONE. MARRTKI)—On last evening, Feb. 27th, 18C2, bjr Rev. Uffjrd, Chaplain of tbe 6tb of Regiaieut Iowa A uliuiteera, Lieut. Beverly Searcy, of Co. C\, Cih Raiment purpose dies and gent? already and there fair women and brave men uiingied in tho joyous dance until "the wee sma* hours beyont the twai," when the subscriber found himself going home with a brick in his bat, and amusing him self by endeavoring to sat a tune to the following line: "NOD* Order No. 3, as you are doubtless aware, is rigidly enforced and, I must confess, conservative as I have always thought my. self to be, that it was with a pang of re gret that I saw the gate of liberty closed against those who were claimed as the chatties of persons who have aided and abetted this unholy rebellion. And the impudent exultation which some of them evinced on claiming the right to search for their chatties, was not calculated to make one feel in a praying mood, by any means. I am not, nor do I think I ever shall be, an abolitionist, according to the, popular understanding of the word but I must confess that all of my favorable predi lections for the institution, which I enter tained at the commencement of the rebell ion, have vanished behind the mist of blood shed as a aaerifioo to that modern Molosh. I would treat it as any other dieease of the body politic and while I would never desire to see millions of an inferior race turned loose to become vagrants and vag abonds, 1 would rather that every slave held in bondage should be free, and sent, at the expense of those who have created the necessity, to the land of their fathers, than that this government, this glorious Union, with its history, its institutions, with the incalculable blessings which all its citizens enjoy under its benevolent and mild operation, should be destroyed or pass away—yen, more, I would pre serve it os it is, and the glorious emblem of its power, without obliterating a single star, or rending from its folds a single stripe, though in doing so all its opposers were swept into the ocean, their bodies buried in the sands of the sea, aud the fair and sunny South become a howling wilderness. G. BY TELEGRAPH. Afternoon Report. WASHINUTOKI ITEMS. [Speical to Chicago Tribune.]] Washington, March 5. Ueut. Col. Emory, of the Sixth cavalry, and Cola. Quinby and Patrick, of New York, have been nominated for Brigadier Generals. Gen Lander will be buried from Rev. Dr. Hall's Church under military ascort. His body guard will be a company of sharp shooters from his native city, Salem, Mass., who have been with him since the fight at Edwards Ferry, Half of the pail bearers are to be civilians, Gen. Lauder not having cherished a love for the regular army. The body arrived this morning, attended by a large number of his officers and men. It has been already embalmed and will be scot to Salem, Mass., after the funeral. Philadelphia and New York merchants have petitioned Congress for a resumption of letter and newspuper mail to Panama. A bill will be introduced soon resuming the old mail. At present there will be no mail communication with Central America. The steamship company posi tively decline to convey letters or news papers without the authority of Congress. The testimony of returned prisoners captured in July at Falling Water before the conduct of the war committee tends tn show thai with more energy Patterson might have caught Johuston before Bull Run. The residenoe of the French miniater, Mcrcier, at Georgetown, was burned last nisht loss 115,000.

Last night a squadron of the 1st Mich igan cavalry advanced as far as Perryville on the Winchester turnpike, aud ambushed and surprise^* party of rebel cavalry, dis abling three of them, and routing the lot. The Michigan party returned with nine rebel cavalry horses, fully equipped, as trophies, among them the celebrcied black stallion ridden by Col. Ashley, without the loss of a man. The amount of forage and provisions captured by OUT right wing since the advance into Virginia, is esti mated to be worth twenty thousand dol lars. This includes four thousand pounds of bacon, stored for the use of the rebel army. Leetownand Lovettsville are now among the places held for the Union.— Up to this time the success of the move ment on the upper Potomac has been complete. Gen. Shields passed through Charles town on his way west last night. Advices from the lower Potomac state that the rebels are undoubtedly concen trating a larg force in that direction op posite to the position of Gen. Hooker's division. There is reason to believe also that the rebel army of the Potomac has been greatly augmented since the recent Union victories ia the West. They have here their strongest defensive works and the flower of their army. Their defeat here #ill close up the rebellion and leave nothing to be done by the Union forees except to move forward and occupy thef seceded States and afford protection to the Union men there until they can or ganize new State governments under aus pices of loyalty. nicldfaa Vtsiociatlc Convomtiea Detroit, March 6. The Democratic State Convention met in this city yesterday, and organized by electing H. H. liiley of St. Joaeph Co. permanent President. Attendance very large fully five hundred delegates were present, and the proceedings harmonious throughout. It wa.s deemed inexpedient to nominate candidates for State offices at this time. Resolutions passed expressive of the pssition of the Democracy of Mich igan in the present crisis, promising to support the Government in all Constitu tional measures to suppress the rebellion, and opposing the termination of the waif until all resistance to Government under the Constitution everywhere ceases. Ab olitionism is strongly denounced as equal ly guilty with Southern secessionist!!, and the speedy extinguishment of both is hoped for approving modification of Fremont'a proclamation, Cameron's report, and ap pointment of present Sec'y of War as ju dicious, that the President will adhere to the Constitution, denouncing corruption and extravagance, and demanding honesty and economy in the administration Government. Cairo Columbus. Cairo, March 5. There is but little news stirring to day of importance. Every thing is quiet at Columbus. Gen. Sherman returned tbitf morning, and inunediately left for Padu cah. Col.
