OF THAT INFAMOUS ORGANIZATION,
AND ITS CONNECTION WITH
THE GREAT REBELLION,
AT THE NORTH.
" AH of which I saw, and part of which I was !"
Thus wrote Ctt.tar on a meruoruMe occasion, and
Edmund Wright has fully established his titi to
echo the sentiment, on an occasion timt will occupy
a long andlark chapter id the history of our Gvv
ertiineut. Edmund Wright saw what it U plea?anter to read
of than witnnsa, and was an involuntary participator
in scones and events that would freoee tnner
liiooi than ls given to common men. Wliat he di
vulges re":irdjiij the causes and inner life of the ac
cursed rebellion of the South, is the newest and by
fkr the most startling chapter yet written in the his
tory of great a:id bloody crimes ; while the incidents
of hi.s own personal experience, connected with tho
scenes he dewnbes, and the axtoundm fu'U he ui
vulea, are of a strangely eieiung interest.
A hundred novels have lcn produced and read
widely, all of which combined comprise lou of
startling incident than is eonUunel in this volume;
while hundreds of narratives of prsoniJ adventure
have U-on gratefully received by the reading com
munity w hich seemed tame and lifeless wheu com
pared with tliis. It tells of triiJ.s mid sorrows,
abuses, indignities, and crimes, truata be! rayed,
and confidences outraged, that we at the North
would never credit, were they not circumstantially
related and dtaenbed by an active participator and
eye v, iruas.
While tlie merit of such a work. In a Bterarr
Tiew, ought not to be measured by ordinary stanj
srds, it is not too much to say tliat the literiiry char
8 Hor of this book will abundantly stand ih.i tvt of
ontinary criticism. Its utterances are tlie natural
fignals of a new found freedom by a soul long tram
meled, and they are teleprapheil into our sympa
thies like the exultant bravas of a joyous victory.
The popular heart throughout the great and glori
ous North will intlulye in miraculous and wh-de-some
tiirobbings in response to this revelation 1
We can scan- ly comprehend tlutt an organization
of the fearful character tliis work dcscriijH exists in
our very midst ; in short, that it influences the
politics, in some dejrree, of every Northern State ;
yvt Mr. Wright's disclosures most conclusively
prove such to l tho tu t. Th.it the reljels against
our free institutions and the glorious tiovenuitert
of our fathers were directing and inllueni-ing the re
cent State elections at the North, and using their
1-est exertions for the Hsu-ces of the Butternut
ticket, is a truly sculling fact ; btit U u a fart, as true
as the existence of heaven ! That we have in our
midst, at our very Uoirs, humireds of men who are
fully in pymmthy and in secret communication
with the Southern reikis, is defnon'Knued beyond a
cavil, and we are forced to believe it.
It is time that an order of a character so infamous
and'deituuctive to every principle ol' political int--nty
be understood by tlie people, thu its inachinn
uons may be at orn"e counters -ted, and iu vei ex
istence crushed out of every loyal tate. No one
that reads this narrative wiU iiul to understand why
theKniiiht.it of the Oolden Cin-le were orjmiieif,
and why they have lieen kept in existence. No one
will fail to see tl!t they were the grtuid mstigtoil9
of the IlcK-lIion, and tluit tho entire ar.nnus of tho
Southern treason and Northern Coppei licadism is
eju-ouraged, fostered, and sustaiiifHlby the secret
siTlngs and ortraniaed wire-pulling of this wicked
ol 'iui-hy. Mr! Wright'M book proves all ot these
positions, lioyond adoulit.
The work is produced in creditalJe style, on fine
paja-r, with si4endid illuminated covers, and fully

The battery in which your corres -
pondent figures as an undistinguished
private has entered ujon the duties of
heavy artillery at Fortress Rosecrans.
The only news to be obtained is, there-
fore, mere glimpses of the events trans -
piring around us. To-day the 12')th,'
122d, 123d, 12Sth, 120th and the ISOth
Indiana regiments, under General IIo
Tey, passed through our fortress ou their
way to tho front The composition of
this command is purely Young Ameri
can. Nearly half of soma companies
are boys. Fresh from tho bosom of
their homes in lloosierdom, tho young
life-blood mounting to their temples,
fond farewells of their sisters still mak
ing mellow music in their ears, and the
passionate klsse3 of their mothers
scarcely cold upon their lips, they pass
onward in the cause of freedom. Cap
tains and Lieutenants, from eighteen to
twenty-two years of age, marching at
tho head of their companies with drawn
Bwordj, declare themselves eager to
sheath them in rebel hearts. Last night
the rain drenched them, and this morn
ing the mud obstructs their vigorous
footsteps. To the ono'they submitted
without complaining, and the impedi
ments of the other they surmount with
out faltering. With them thera is no
pause. The cry is forward, forward.
Going on conquering and to conquer,
they will not hearken to the voice of
the Siren, nor heed the Butternut howl
for "peace on any terms." They are
determined to see tho end of tho rebel
lion, orfill a soldier's grave. It is a
good augury for the future of our coun
try. May the God of battles guard,
and tho angel of retribution go with
them; and may the banner of beauty
waving over their devoted heads again
float triumphantly, gloriously and for
ever over tho American continent.

lette of the Tribune's Washington tele
gram, that the Oovernor had prepared
a proclamation calling upon Keutucky
to resist the draft of her slaves, in Jaoji
us to return to the topic, and to atat-.i
positively and more at large that, among
the evidences of a treasonable purpose
conpircl between the Governor of
that state and tho Louisville Journal
1. The fact that Gov. Bramlette sat
upon the platform at Lexington, and
gave his o'.hcial countenance to tho
traitorous speech of Wolford, in which
lie eulogized "the Buekner, the Mor
gan, the StepWuses of Kentucky raid
j f the South," denounced the President
- as ''a tyrant and usurer," and moaned
over "the desolation and nmeiy tlm
war was bringing on tho women arid
children of tho South.
2. Tho fact that tho Trovost Mah-tl
of Boyle county, while engaged in
enrolling the negroes in his district, re
ceived a dispatch by telegraph fr m
Gov. Bramlette, nearly if not liter j !!v
j in these words: I have d;-pat.hed tho
President, and have demanded that
this business of enrolling and drafting
of negroes in Kentucky must be stop
ped ; and if he don't stop it, I wili."
3. Tho facts that Gov. Bramlette, af
ter an interview with Miipruan, of tho
Louisville Journal, wrote a proclama
tion to the people of Kentucky, and
sent it for publication to the oi.'ict? of
the Commonwealth newspaper, and that
it was there put in type and proofs of it
taken that the proclamation (1) in its
opening and throughout was grossly
abusive, of, and hostile to 31 r. Lincoln s
administration. (2.) That it unhesi
tatingly counseled resistance toth en
rolment of her negroes, and spocifigl
how this could be don; stating frst,
that the owners of slave could rtfdi.i
to giv in their names, ages, ic ; sec
ond, that if means were r sorted to
compel them to furnish tho negro"
names, Ac, they could appeal to tho
courts and to him ns Oovernor. (3)
That it pledged the people- of Kentucky,
that if they would tak' this cyur-e, hu
would sustain them in it with all tha
power of the State. (1) That it attack
ed tho law of Congress as "unquestion
ably unconstitutional," and ur;--'d ru
istance to the draft on that ground.
4. The fact that at a meeting of LYa
gentleman in Frankfort, at nine o'
clock at night, Gov. tramltitte re-ad
that proclamation aloud from a proof,
freshly brought in from the printing
5. Th'at tho loyal stout-hearted Dr.
Breckinridge withstood i's publication
and rebuked its spirit, tell ng .thi Gov
ernor that it would "tt ing on civil war
in the State, and that he wcu'd be held
to a terrible responsibility, both piscn
al and official, if he published it "
6. That the Governor, cowed by Brv;!r
inridge's firmness and terr:ness, and
the milder disapproval of the oi.hers,
then and there eviscerated the traitor
ous document, and ent it to b resot
for publication, shorn of fit ixt of
