The Louisville Dmrcrat of the HOih
inst., reported that Gen. CnECKixnitoE
had entered Danville with from 12,000 to
15,000 troops. AVa have received . to
many cxtravagantrcports from Louisville
heretofore respecting invasions, that it is
hard to say how much credit is to be at
tached to this last rumor. Rebel Advice
say that Breckis-riwk was in Chatta
nooga on the 22nd iust., so that one part
of the tale falls to the ground. The
proclamation issued in bis name, of course
was done by proxy. ' have no uoubt
that (here is a rebel force in Kentucky,
but it does not number half, perhaps not
one-third of fifteen thousand. . Lven if
the rebel fore be so Jarjie, we assure our
readers that it an tU'uct nothing of much
concequence, save : stealing hones and
cattle, and carrying off provisions. We
will not give psrticvlars, but our friends
may fesl easy, for the Government is and
has been vigilant. It .has been well
posted in regard to the movements of the
rebels, and their present expedition will
retreat fur more ingloriously than their
former one from Kentucky.
'.' The Louisville Jviirml urges the people
to remember " that the Northern Democ
racy are fighting face to face with the
abolitionists,' while the Union Men of
Kentucky are fighting face to face with
the secessionists, and that there is ac
cordingly the same reason fur tin', Jaltcr
to erposB nnd denounce tlie acts of Jeff. Davis
iy Co. at every turn as there is for the former
to erpose and denounce die ads of Lincoln J(
Co. in like nwtner." .
The administration of Lincoln & Co."
is, according to the JoiminJ to be de
nounced at every turn " "in like man
ner " as the administration of Jeff. Da
vis & Co." At a time of extraordinary
national peril, when patriots are concern
td, not about the party which shall con
trol the country, but whether we are lo
have a country at all, or not, this Ken
tueky organ, which calla itself conserva
tive, but which is as incendiary and rad
ical as Jack Cade, Wat Tvier or Das
Siiat, attempts to stir up the people to
war against the Federal Administration,
which we aro solemnly bound to obey for
two years to come. And it is not only to
bo denounced, but it is to be denounced al
vehemently as the usurpation of Jem
Davis and the Richmond junto. And
who are Lincoln & Co. that they aio to
be denounced as bitterly as thoijh they
were armed traitors? One of the, cam
pany is Mr. Seward, the Secretary of
State, a man who was considered an in
lellectual giant when Clat and Wkdstf.r
were there ; a diplomatist who, while the
whole country apprehended foroign in
(crvention, conducted our international
fairs with consummate skill and address
The load was vast, but the shoulders of
Atlas have proved equal to the burd
Another of the company is Secretary
Ciiask, whose masterly skill in manag
ing, and reducing to a safe and regular
system tho disordered and . imperriled
finances and credit of the Govern
ment, against which existod an ex
tradorinary combination of adverse cir
cumstances, has given confidence and
cheerfulness to the people, and will cn
title him to rank in history with Monws
and Alexandeu Hamilton. The fame
of Ciiask alono would shed immortal
honor upon the present administration
On his shoulders rested a most fearful
responsibility. His was the duty of fur
nishiug the sinews of war, and sustain
iug the national credit. The adiuini
tration thus malignantly denounced by
the Journal, might ask lo be judged
mildly by Kentucky loyalists, at least
Kentucky has been treated with extra
ordinary consideration by the Govern
ment. Her requests ami counsels Were
long heeded to a most perilous extent
The blood and treasure of the nation has
been poured out like water for nor pro
lection, even whilesomo of her leading
politicians, the Journal among them, were
hobbling upon the " crutch of neutrality,"
A Venerable member of the last Kentucky
Legislature said that the administration
had expended $100,000,000. Why then
this factious denunciation of the admin
istration? It cannot spring ffoiu patri
otism. No man is such a foul as to be
licvo that continual opposition (o, and
denunciation of the administration,
whose legal duty it is lo conduct the
war, can possibly promote the vigorous
and successful prosecution of the war.
A man would hardly think of helping a
fireman to put out a coullagration by
pelting his back with brickbat. The
only explanation which can be given of
the course pursued by such papers as the
Louisville Journal towards the adminis
tration, is that they are the organs of a
fiction, which seek to ride into power
by crying down the present administra
tion, and who are anxious for the qld
pro -slavery Southern Democratic party
to again obtaiu control of the natieu.
What an ignoble motive for a party at a
time like the present ! ' ' '

The Richmond Wing, of the IBlh, has
an article on the " South-west," in which
it admits as possibly Irne an assertion
that "the people of the South-west are
moro Inclined to peace, especially with
tho North-west, than the Atlantic States
of the Confederacy." The Whig attrib
utes Ibis inclination to the reverses of the
rebel arms in Ihe West. The Whig says
"The Yankees now hold Nashville more
firmly than before, threaten seriously the
occupation of East Tennessee, are not
dislodged from Northern Mississippi,
have again entered Florence, and make a
promise not altogether idle of enter
ing Georgia." ! . : .
"This is the painful history of our
arms in Tennessee and Kentucky. If wo
cross the Mississippi, and inquire the re
Suits of our efforts in Arkansas and Mis
souri, the record is tow humiliating to Ue
read at length. No man cares to hear the
story of the Confederate cause after the
fall of McCulIoch and th joining of
Price's forces to those of Beauregard
Tho chronicle ia not more sad than it is
shameful. : It may be summed up by tho
disheartening announcement made in our
late exchanges that Ihs armies of Holmes
and Ilndman have dwindled from thirty-five
thousand docn to a merelriyade. ;.'In lexis
and in the Indian Territory the story is
tuuch the same large armies raised and
nothini; accomplished. Concerning An
zouia and New Mexico, we have ceased
to have any thing whatever. Perhaps
they are no longer considered a part of
the Confederacy
"When the fortune of war have been
so uniformly adverse, it is not surprising
that a people who see in its prolongation
not subjugation, but the iurther ravaging
of their fields, the loss of their slave
and tho burning of their homes, should
desire its cessation at the earliest mo
ment, and perhaps bo willing to make
concessions which others more fortunate
would reject. . It i not believed lhat the
South-west laoks faith in the ultimate
success of tho cause, or is unwilling to
make as great, sacrifices as Ihe people in
Iho valley and in tide-water Virginia
have done; but when they perccivo month
after month pass by without any head
way being tuado by our armies, and with
only a partial resistsnue to the enemy's
advance, they naturally enough distrust
the arbitrament of the sword and incline
to the expedients of diplomacy.'' j

To'l'ic Editors' of the Chicago Times:
Being a soldier in Iho Uih Illinois In
fantry, I write to make known lo you
and, if vou deem proper, you ran make
known Ihrough your-rulumn the truth
in regard to curtain sentiments expressed,
or said lo have been expressed, by (he
Brigade of which (he 1MU Illinois In
fantry constitutes a part. Jn the first
place, tb held, and line officers of Ihe
brigade met and put on paper their sen
timents, and then bad tho same read
separately ; l ,,-each regiment. Now, in
regard to our regiment, to our knowledge,
not more than one-third of Ihc men cheer
ed fier th reading of thec resolutions,
and when tho vote was called for whether
they should be Sent home and be pub
lished, there were not more than one
hundred men that voted iu their favor.
This is the plain truth of the case. The
fact is, there is much disatlcclion in re
gard to tho way the war is carried on at
the present time, and our oflicer don't
mean to have it generally known at
home. They want to have it believed
in the North that the soldiers are all, to
a man, united in favor of the ab .litionof
slavery, which is not the cane. If it was
generally known throughout tho army
that this was a war for the abolition of
llavery, the men would throw down
their arms this day.
In regard to the resolutions' which our
oQicers adopted, you without doubt have
seen them before this, in tbe Irihunt.
Now, what I have written, are the facts
in the case, and I would like to have the
truth made known to the public.

Tho above correspondence was cut out
of tho Chicago Jtmes, and sent to a
member of our company. ' W might
have noticed it before, but we don't dirty
our fingers with a rag so miserable, mean
and traitorous, as the above paper
What is stated therein as a fact, is a lie
intoto, and we, tbe members of Co. K,
10th Illinois Infantry, deny that such a
correspondence ever wss sent by any
member thereof. A traitor so mean and
low, doea not exist iu our midst; the
editors of the Chicago 'lime may know
that from the fact that their paper is
neither bought nor kept by any man in
our company. We consider Ihem as vile
traitors, as tiiuse wa stand in aims
against only more cowardly, and wish
we bad an opportunity to Iry our steel
on them. The above is either their own
manufacture, or written by another
traitor outsid the 16th Iil, lor we hou
estly think there ia no such character in
onr regiment. Let th editor of the
2im give us the name of (he corres
pondont, or wo shall think il another of
their foul tricks, to belie the loval men
at home. Neither in our regiment, nor
in our brigade, have yet been any reso
lotions prepared or adopted, but if the
Copperheads want, to know our sent!
mcnts, they shall soon hear them.
