THE TBilTORI AND THE SYHP4
THIZERK.
Geo. W. Jones, the traitor friend of
Jeff. Davis, ia the real leader of the op
position to the Administration in this
State. Dennis Mahony, now in prison
for treaaonable practices, the nominal
head of the party, iras put forward by
Jones, and operated iu his interest, and at
bis bidding. Their object was to em
barrass our Government, and give aid
and comfort to Jeff. Davis, as Jones
promised in bis letter to that chief of
traitors he would do on his return home.
The rebels understand the matter, and
a committee of the rebel Congress ac
knowledge the position and services of
their Aliiea in the Northwest in the fol
lowing extract of a report of a committee
to the rebel Congress. The report says
*'lt is gatifying to discover that high
spirited and intelligent jmblic men in sev
eral of the JVir//nccstern States have of
late become (xc (dingly active in their en
deavor* tu discourage awl strpjjress the fer
ocious war spirit heretofore raging among
their follow citirenp, and that their honest
and patriotic efforts have bicn already
attended with the most marked success.
"Such a proclamation as that recom
mended in the resolutions referred to this
committee, it is confidently believed,would
have a tendency greatly to strengthen the
•Sorts of the advocates of peace in the
Northwestern States, be calculated to
bring those States qnicMy into amir-able
relations with the Suit* of the South,
nthdrair them ultimately altogether from
Iheir prissnt injurious political connection
with the State* of tin Surth and East,
with tchirh they have really to liidr in
common, and thus enable us to dictate
the terms of a just and honorable peace
from the great commercial rm/Mriutn of
that region through xchost inflwnet mainly

thus far kept in process.-'
t&- The sympathisers of Indiana are
rejoicing over the success of their party
in the Legislature, because they will now
have it in their power to return Jesse D.
Bright to the United States Senate.—
Bright, our readere will remember, was
expelled from the St liute for a similar
treasonable correspondence with Jeff Da
vis, with that confessed by our Iowa trait-
or»
Ceo. W. Jones.
Such are the men whom the Demo
crats propose to put in power again, the
very men who aided the traitors to organ
ize their rebellion and seize the forts and
arms of the Government. The very men
who would to-day glad!) tell the blood of
our volunteers on southern battle-fields,
and the honor of our country, for place
and power Tor themselves under a alave
oc ratio dynasty of southern traitors.

It is now about twenty years ago since
there was employed in the New York Cus
tom House a man named Win. L. Mackeu
sie, endowed with a remarkably iujuirng
turn of mind. W bile rummaging through
some of the old boxes of that establish
ment he discovered an extraordinary col
lection of political letters addressed to Col
lector Hoyt, a protege o( the late ex-Pres­
ident Y an Buren. Never before nor since
were there such piquant revelations made
concerning the inner life and controlling
ideas, and of the heartlessness of a polit
ical junto. The YranBuren's however, or
ai well as the late B. F. Butler, without be
ing foolish enough to offer explanations,
regarded the exposure of their private let
ters as villainous treachery, and as such
was it denounced by their adherents and
themselves. Hoyt appealed to Chancery
for aid. It may be all right now for
Prinde John to betray the confidential re
marks of his friend Wadswortb, and the
contents of a letter of Gen. Scott, treach
erously obtained by some one. But I do
IlOt see exactly how.

The Rioht Brian.—Daniel Webster
said, at the anti-nullification meeting at
Faneuil Hall, thirtyjyears ago:
I shall support the President in main
taining this Uniou and this Constitution
and the causc shall not fail for want of
any aid, any effort, any co-opeeation of
mine. When the glorious standard of the
Union is raised, and waves over my luat!,
God forbid that 1 should inquire who is
commissioned to uni'uil it and bear it up.
1 only ask in what manner I, as an hum
ble individual, can best discbarge my duty
in defending it."
That is now the language of every true
patriot.
Hew York, October 1862.
J. B. Ho well, Esq.—My last to you
was from Harper's Ferry. I wish the
farmers of Iowa had such markets for the
sale of their produce as the rebel farmers
of Y irginia have had for more than a
year, contiguous to our great army. At
Harper's Ferry potatoes were soiling at
two dollars' per bushel, cheese 26 cents
per pound, butter fiO cents, eggs at any
prices asked.
The great army is still there, and soon
the roads will be in a condition to make it
difficult to move—an excuse, valid per
haps, to go into winter quarters. The
rebel officers I mentioned in my last have
been paroled, and were on their way to
Washington and thence to Richmond, to
get exchanged. They commented severe
ly upon Mr. Lincoln's Emancipation proc*
lamation, said it would not be justified by
any civilized Nation, because the whole
world know that such a step did not grow
out of a military necessity, but that
it was the emanation of a vicious and
barbarous spirit—just such a spirit as was
manifested by the Pilgriqi Fathers and
their descendants. One of tbem thought
it would have been a merciful providence
to the world if the Mayflower had been
lost and all on board perished in the broad
ocean. My friend suggested as an off
set to this, that it might have been a
greater blessing if the ships loaded with
convicts from England had never reached
the shores of Virginia from whom in part
sprang such a bullii?tr*nt and tyrannical
race.
I saw many rebel 'prifwnera. All of
them were violent in their denunciation of
the President's emancipation proclama
tion, and in the same breath will tell you
that it will have no more force than a
sheet of blank paper. Not an officer in
the Union ariny has yet resigued iu con
sequence of the proclamation, notwith
standing
fcit
was prop be* i«id that large
numbers would do so. All the officers
and men with whom 1 conversed highly
approved of it. The fact is the experi
ence of our army with the South has
made many of tho officers and soldirs Ab
olitionists. Many who before approv
ed of slavery now hate it, and openly de
nounce the institution.
I repeat what has been said a thousand
times, that slavery is the sole cause of this
war, and the war is now continued to save
slavery. It is evident that the South
would sooner sacrifice the lives of her
sons, and every white man there, if by
that means they can save the lives of their
negroes and perpetuate slavery.
The raid of Stuart into Pennsylvania
and Maryland—making a circuit of the
great Army of the Potbmac, and crossing
into Virginia unharmed, while the whole
country from Harper's Ferry to Point of
Rocks, and from thence to Sharpsburgh,
is literally swarming with Union soldiers
is another of the unacQountable things
in the management of the Union Gen
erals.
It does seem to me that instead of cap
turing the rebel army, when opportunity
offers as at Antietam, and Stuart's late
performance the efforts of the command,
ing Generals has been how not to do it-
I often heard the opinion expressed
that if Gen. Hooker had commanded the
Union army at Antietam, the rebel army,
never would have made their escape from
Maryland.
I heard sn officer say that the cause of
so many mistakes by the Union army is
that the President had made too many
Generals out of what God made the
world.
And now I have a word to say about
the continued blockade of the Mississippi
river which is working ruin to the inter
ests of this great valley, and especially to
the citizens of Iowa. The west is bled
to depletion, while the North and East
are profiting by our misfortune. The
river has been blockaded eighteen months
and millions of people have thereby been
cutoff from an outlet to market.
The railroads leading to the East take
an undue advantage of this, and advance
the price of freight to a point that forbids
shipment.
I have been surprised that the people
of the West have exsreieed such patience
and remained so long quiet under such a
burdensome state of affairs.
I think the time has come for the
South West to speak—let public meet
ings be held in Keokuk, and in all the
principal placos in Iowa, or what per
haps would be better, a State meeting, and
pass resolutions asking the President,
nay demanding of him to send at once a
military force sufficient to clear the river
of rebels, and a naval force to protect the
commerce thereof, and summarily punish
any rebels who may interfere.
Iowa has a right to demand all this.—
She has stood by the Union, has promptly
responded to every call of the President
for men, and at the late election has given
new pledges of her loyalty. Let her
speak then, and speak boldly, and my
word lor it, she will be beard.
Truly Yours.
Pr«al4«nt'a Proclamation la the
Army.
A correspondent, writing to the Cin
cinnati Gazette from Helena, Arkansas,
says:
In regard to the President's proclama
tion of emancipation, let me say a word as
to how it was received in the army, be
fore I close this letter. It was approved
of everywhere. The semi-treasonable
journals may croak, but it is a fact indis
putable, that the soldiers everywhere—I
mean the great masses of the army—will
sustain the President in jjis views, as ex
pressed in bis proclamation, in senti
ments, in word, and iu action. Since it
came forth 1 have passed through many
regiments—1 have heard hundreds ex
press their opinion of it—many officers of
high rank, and 1 never have yet heard
one denounce it—not one.
The President's proclamation was re
ceived with hearty cheers by our prison
ers at Richmond.

Camp at Cassville, Mo., Oct. 17.
EnlTOR Gate City—Bear Sir: The
army of south-west Missouri marched its
long columns, with tedious transportation
trains, frqm Springfield, more than two
weeks ago, and after various marchings,
counter-marchings, reconuoiasances and
scouts, it has settled down seemingly for
the meeting of the clans at Cassville,
Barry county, Mo., on the head waters of
White River.
It is reported that we are within twen
ty miles of the enemy in superior force,
but we soldiers believe what we see, nothing
more.
Nothing has transpired since my last
writing, worthy of mention, except what
occurred in that heavy engagement of
two hours, &c., spoken of in the St. Louis
papers.
Your correspondent happened to be in
that engagement, and a word may not be
amiss as to that memorable affair. In
formation received at headquarters about
the 1st inst., indicated that the enemy
were in heavyforce at Newtonia, as they
had repulsed a detachment of Kansas
troops, and taken over 10O prisoners-a
few days before, and it was determined to
give them an opportunity of again display
ing their valor upon the same ground.
Due preparations being made, we march
ed from camp early on the night of the
3d inst., and after tiaveling all night we
arrived at the designated spot about 7
o'clock a. m., next day, to find the dis
position of our troops most admirable*
had the enemy been there.
They had fled in haste during the night,
placing their baggage train in their ad
vance. Gen. Blunt, with his command,
came in on the north-west, Col. Solomon
came in on the west and Gen. Totten on
the east, but Geu. Brown failing to come
in with his forces upon the south Bide in
time, left the south end of the bag open
and the enemy took the hint and accept
ed the invitation to take an early mora
ing ride towards Dixie. It wai a grand
sight to witness the moving lines aud
columns of our army across the prairie
through skirts of timber, feeling their
way by skirmishers, while the artillery
sent a few shot and shell after the retreat
ing forces of the rebels through the ad
joining timber.
The result of casualties as far as vour
correspondent could learn, is summed up
in one killed (rebel indian) and two or
three wounded.
Since
that time our forces have been
active making reconnoissances and send
ing scouts to scour the country in all di
rections lor rebels. From Newtonia, we
made our memorable day's march on the
9th inst., through deep mud and heavy
rain, encamping near Gad Fly lute in the
eveuing. Many of the regiments were
compelled to bivouac and wait for their
transportation two days to make the trip
through almost impassible roads. Having
cut our transportation down to "regula
tions" at Springfield, our train moved
readily along in rear of our column—
much to the comfort of tired men after a
tedious day's march.
We reached here Saturday the 11 inst.,
and sinco that time we hare had daily
accessions to the army of south west
Missouri til! to-day a new order of things
transpired.
TH* AHMT OF THE FRONTIER
w
e are no mote to be styled "Hie
Army S. W. Mo." Why this change
was made is not generally known, nor
can your correspondent enlighten the
public upon that question, but may be al
lowed a guess thai it wa9 made to over
some certain obstacles in the way of per.
feet harmony between State Militia and
Volunteer officers of tho "Army 8. YV.
Mo."' That there is some friction the
most casual observer can see, but how
this will reducc it is not for us to say.—
The institution is running decidedly on
the "M. S. Mo." principle now, but
when we travel into Arkansas it may
change and run more on Ui« U. S. Volua-
denunciation of there is so many different grades of ser-
1
vice composing one army. We have reg
ulars, U. S. Yrolunteers, Missouri State
Militia and Missouri Enrolled Militia, and
in some grades a Major General, while in
some grades the man is only Majw with
out the General.
By present arrnng^ment, the senior
Colonel commands brigades, while Brig.
Generals command divisions.
We now are in the 2d brigade, Col.
Phelps commanding, and 3d division,
Brig. Gen. Herron commanding. The
1st and 2d divisions, I believe, are com
manded by Generals Blunt and Totten
respectively^,
THE 1st IOWA CITlXBItS.
Last Tuesday we played the citi&m and
opened the poll* of our rvgiaient to pass
upon sundry candidates, asking position

tonish some of our conservative friends
who claimed that the large majority of
soldiers, and especially the 1st Iowa cav
alry were Democrats.
The general average on various candi
dates was about as follows:
Republican, 8§f
Democrat,
64
Republican majority, 298.
Rather radical for life long Democrats
to become in, one year. It was a very
quiet election, little being ssid by either
party. As far bb heard from the other
Iowa regiments were more onesided than
ours.

It is believed that the N. Y. Herald's
special's statement that the Governors of
loyal States are to assemble at Washing
ton next week to dictate a policy in ref
erence to the movements of the army of

ufactured out of wholoolotb. Gov. Mor

From several sources we learn there is
great activity among the rebels in the vi
cinity of Y'leksburg and Holly Springs.
They evidently contemplate an attack
soon but just at what point is not known.
Joo Johnson is said to have 2(J,t)00
troops at Little Rock, and the number at
Holly Springs is known to be about 10,
000. The rebels are crossing their force
from Arkansas to Mississippi at Y'icks

for an attack at Holly Springs. The
Eere
lace is being strongly fortified. A rumor
to-night that they are moving north,
is probably incorrect.
The people east of Memphis near Ger
