The Work of Mninhtng up the Rebel lion?What is Mr. Lluoln About 1 Patiently wait ng, at we are, the issue of General Sherman's grand movement, anil confi dent of tbe moat glorious results; manifest as the great fact now appears to tbe public eye that tbo rebo lion is staggering to its fall, these questions still recur: ?VVbat is the administra tion doing ? Is it working or waiting? What i-t Mr. Lincoln about T Tic country has endorsed his policy of put tibgtflowu the rebellion and restoring peace ?>7 force itf at rub. The people of the loyal States, with an "tupSaeib wi.?ol> admit* of no miscon struction, ba*e declared this to be tl eir policy; and with ttiis r*tiBoatioi] they bave the right to expect that the war will be "short, sharp and decisive." We would, theretpre, admonish Mr. Lincoln against ti e danger of relapsing into t^e policy of awaiting and drifting along with the course of events. That duy hu? gone l?y. II? is ne longer under this necessity. JIi? course is fairly marked out before hiio. lie ins new the author, y ** well as the power to ?bap*? and control etrtit*. Wtiat he is fir?t re quired to do is plain, eaay hi d siuiple. It is to leniolish the armed forces of Jet!'. Davis: to itrike while the iron is hot; to follow up with rigor the latf well delivered and stiuming blows of Grant, Sbetnun, Sheridan, Kanagut a id Rosecrans, and to give tbe rebels, neither Last nor W?--t, suv opportunity to recover from tbe demoralization und consternation now so widely prevailing among them. Tbe people of tbe loyal States have recog nized and ratified the vast imptovements in the conduct of the war under Grant und his gene rals as eompajrd *itb Scott iu I his genitals. Tbe difficulty with General Scott, wai that in the beginning of the war be had to select hiw generals pretty much at a venture; while the subsequent events, developments and expe rieuct of tbe war hav? broi.ght Grant and bis geuerala into the foreground. So far, than, the administration is all right. But the late national election ba* called for something more. A reconstruction of tbo Cabinet was one of tbe plsnls of tbe Baltimore platform. The ecunlry ba.J seconded the motion, and tbe j!re?' public interests involved in tbe national d?'iraad this r'Tonitrtiction. lbe Ca binet nveds a n'-w infusion of life and energy. Then* is bo longer any difficulty before Mr. Lincoln iu m'-etinf this public requisition, lie is triumphantly re-elected, lie is relieved i of his .tie embarrassment*. He Is really now tbe master of the situation. The power is in Irs h?u<I*. and tbe couM in cl^ar. ^ewaat. for example. an active, capable, clear headed, healthy and rigoron's nian at the head of the Treasury Department. Mr. Fen anmlxn ts an invalid, tuul *sh"wr. neither the ctreDpth nor the incliuation required to grapple successfully the duties of bin position. \\ t hate an enormous national debt upon our bands, and It still accumulate* at the rate of from two to tbree millions a day. The firat thing in order i* to 'top this tremondoua leak by finishing the war; but the next thing in im portance is an efficient admiolat,ration of tbe Tre.iaury Department. Upon this subject wt nay properly inquire now, oa the threshold of a new sesiioQ of Congress, nnd on tbe eve of tbe epeaing of a new aet of boolw, what is Mr. Lfucoln about? Wo would next respectfully submit to Mr. Lincoln tbut we have bad quite enough f>f old Mr. Welles an the bead of the I^ry Depart ment. Wbat be is doing now, when he should be malting ibe remaining seaboard de fence* or ih* rebels rattle again, we rare not particularly to inquire; bat frun all appearance* be Is, *? usual, quiufy sleeping uf on his oars. Here, again, the question recurs, what is lfr. Lincoln about! We might go further with this review. We m'gbt show to the satisfaction of Mr Lincoln, perhaps, that the shortest and most satisfactory way to mend bin Cabinet would be to tuake it a new cne, of nr*.r men, from top to bottom. The specifications we bare made, however, should ne longer bo diaregarded.

If so, we would adrise him to drop It?? "drop it like a hot potato"? and spare some portion of bis time and attention from the work of his message to the urgent business of the war. Let us first get tie rebellion down; and now, while it is staggering aud blinded, ia the time to finish it. A Sup?rb Special Flcee of Daila?ii-A Tretiarjr Coon Com* Down. Our readers will remember that we alluded, a few days ago, to a very mean piece of busi ness eu the part of the Treasury Department. The department seat us an advertisement of the sale of some confiscated property, which we published and charged for at our own rates. When the bill was sent on the depart ment objected to paying it, because it was j larger than the bills of some one-horse papers in town. It did not eoem to strike tbe depart ment that we charged more money because we gave the advertisement a greater publicity, and that our rates were the cheapest because our circulation is the largest. A, superb special agent, known and respected as Mr. II. A. Risley, took tbe matter in hand, and we elucidated for his benelit tbe rcasou, tbe logic, the philosophy and the importance of the sub* j**ct. Mr. Risley listened to our reasons, was convinccd *>7 our logic, appreciated our phi losophy, and cane down, like Captain Scott's coon, as follows:? TO TDK BPITOB OF THS 1IRPAT.D. lHKAMURT r?PARlNir?T, Nov. 28.1R04, His?Your letter ot tlie 23d lost., addi fused to Anai.<laut Secretary Field, bap linen referred to me, a'>d I suppose is 10 ended ?s a reply to mjr letter of the 22d addressed to you. 1 ooucede your rlcht to Or your terms, nod persons advertising lu tbe Haiti ui should pay according u> your term*. 1 therefore enclose draft, payable to your order, for $19.< 30, tbe ran nit ui of your receipted bill notr In my poasMsivn, Ilospectlully yours, n. A. RISLET, Supg. Special Agent treasury Department. There are, unfortunately, many men in Wash ington, and especially in tbe departments, upon wbom logio and philosophy have no effect T bey are too tbick-headed to comprehend, and too stupid to understand the force of our rea soning. Secretary Chase was one of lbi? sort, and we finally philosophized him out of office. Secretary Welles his the same characteristics; but we have not yat been able to argue him out of tbe Navy Department or into eaptnring Wilmington. It might be invidious to name others wh<? are equally senseless, and, upon wbom we have wasted enough logio to satisfy Whately, and enough philosophy to make Ba con rise from his grave and call us blessed. Suffice it to say,. then, that Mr. Risley is net one of these men. He is a nuperb special agent in a double sense, und through bin wt bave accomplished a superb piseee of business. . Ills.letter establishes a most jaet and valuable precedent He "concedes our right to fix our ; terms, and that persons advertising in the Hk bald should pay according to our terms." This is precisely tbe principle which we have beea attempting to establtah. Everybody bos ad mitted it,?from the chambermaids of our pri vate chambers to the chambermen of our Chamber of Commerce, and only tbe depart ments bare remaiued unconverted. Now Mr. Risley acknowledge* the cereal on tbe part ot the Treasury people, and cur sole regret is that we have not a Risley in every one of the departments of the government. All reforms must have a- commencement, however, and we do not doubt that the other departments will be converted in due tine. There 1b the 1'ost Office Department, for exam ple. According to Mr. Risley's concession, the Post (>ffice owes us some thirty or forty thou sand dollars fur advertisements inserted under our usual rates. The Postmaster of this city is a very good man; bat the Postmaster Gene ral obliges him to go round to the editors, bat in hand, begging them to print bis advertise ments for a mere pittance. We did so for awhile out of charity to the department; bat at last the nuisance grew too great, an 1 we refused to be imposed upon any longer. This paper and that paper an l the other pap'r alio refused; and when one of the journals finally accopted the advertisement, it was with the idea that it? editor?the lion. Ilenry J. Ray tnond?would bring tb? matter before the next Congress, of which he is to be the Speaker, as the republicans have nobody else who can keop them in order. Mr. Raymond will mata an excellent Speaker, and he will be in a position to confer a great favor upon the whole press by obtaining a Congressional endorsement of the principle eonccded by Mr. Risley, vi?:?That every newspaper has a right to fix its own terms, and that alt those who advertise in a newspaper?no matter whether they belong in a department of the govern ment or in a department of business?ought to pay according to those terns We would urge the Postmaster General to do a graceful thing, by making the same avowal at Mr. Risley, before he is forced to do so by act of Congress; but. unfortunately, we do not now know who the Postmaster General is, Montgomery Blair has resigned; but wh% has succeeded him? There was a jolly jok?* from Obio mentioned In con nection with the place; but whether President Lincoln gate It to him, or whether Old Abe decided to do all the joking in Washington himself, we are re*Uj Ignorant Under C??M circumstances we rely open Mr. Ray mond, the Speaker who is to be; and we have nft doubt that he will wo that justice is done to the pre?s in regard to these advertisement* The Smrrs i? Tivvisr Hall.?There we* a mysterious meeting of spirits at Tammany Hall after twelve o'clock the other night. The lights barned bine and n sulphuric odor per vaded the premises. The old War Horse was presdDti with all hit harness on; but he was mesmerized into a deep sleep. &td could not say yea or lay to the proceedings. The busi ness of the spiritual meeting was to remove Peter Sweeny A Co. from the leadership of Tammany Hall, and ta appoint in their stead those two well known Irish Catholic demo crats, George Purser and Jimmy Brooka. This was accomplished by a unanimous vote, and the spirits adjourned to parts unknown at the crowing of the eock. Thus spiritualism ia be ginning to control not onlj our religious, bat VU( poUUcel affairs. | Til* nobel Pr*n ol Hew Torn City* the Heccat Attempt isUuaOoira MttropolU. For a lung time paat the rebel journals ef this city, which are very well known, hare been favoring all the action* and applauding ail the motives of the rebels. They have abutted their pelicy, rejoiced at the successes bf their armies, and in every way have give# strong moral aid to their /tfifli ib# time that <hejr 6tole the Uuited States Navy Yurd at Norfolk and plundered the Custom House at New Orleans down to the present day. They ha?"? undertaken to justify all their actions before pod and man. They are now engaged in makiojf li^bt of, if aot defending, the atro cious atteuipt.to burn down this metropolis on Friday nigbt?the last rebel plan, which providentially failed. The rebel press disclaims any eonnectioa with this conspiracy on the part of the rebel | Jjovernment and leaders, although it is now ulfy ascertained by the authorities that the riugleaders were Southern emissaries, and that the crime was suggested by the Richmond papers. "We dismiss," says one of the rebel papers, "as absurd, ungenerous and unjust, the idea that the Confederate authorities, or the Southerners as a people, are accomplices in the act, or that they originated or en couraged it in any way, or that they will en dorse it." "The Confederate administration," it goes on to suy, "have exhibited too much wisdom and tact to permit the supposition that they would identify their cause with any such damning deoJs. Tney know too well, by experience, the effect of vandalism in war. Tuey know that the united sentiment of the South is chiefly due to the policy of destruc tion and rapine that has been practised against them, and th*>y would sanction no measures calculated to create a similar unity 01 feeding and action in the North." The rebel government may have much wis dom and tact, tut tbey are exhibited in u vicious and very curious manner. There waa no cause for this most wiskod rebellion thai ever left a blot on cirilizauou. There were no complaints wade that could aot4iave been lis tened to by the wbole people of Ue Union, and remedied by eonetiiirtional action. But the robel chiefs violated the constitution and with it every moral law. As far as tbe morality of the rebellion is concerned, it is no better than any other organized plan of murder, perjury, theft and burglary. It begantwith the commis sion of all these crime?, and it hw been car ried out in the same epifit. And yet in the lace ef these broad facts, which are known to the whole world?after tbe firing on Fort Sumter, tbe grand larceny of public pro perty at Norfolk and New Orleans, the bar barities to the wounded and prisoners;- in their hands?the rebel journals of this oily have the audacity toeay that "the antecedents of tbe Con federate authorities and people ia this atraggle do uot warrant the supposition that they would be so loot to reason and humanity as to aouo tenance such n system ot antagonism. Tbey bave sliowa themselves jenlous of their reputa tion as s% Christian and enlightened people; they have sought to oreate thv impression abroad thatUbeir'eonduot of' tbe war has been strictly in accordance with tbe usage,? of civilized nations; and tbey would. certainly not forfeit their reputation, and the guod will- of their sympathizers, by suddenly assuming tbe attitude of savages and incendiaries." We bavo thus before us the opinions of tbe rebel press of New York upon this damnable erimc, and we ahall soon hea? tho rn of tho r <l?el' press of Richmond. They cinnot say more in behalf of the rebellion than the rebol presc of this ctty have-said from the begimiing, and in justification, of this horrible attempt to bwn down a great city, and with ito aehes to mingle those of thousands of innocent and helpless people, they can hardly say less* The rebel press of Uichmond, the organs of the govern ment, threatened and councelled the act of wholesale arson and murder, an we have shown by quotations from their columns; yet tbe reb*l press of New Yorx tell us that tbe rebels have "tihown themselves jealous of their refutation as a Christian and enlightened people' !* Thk Democrats in Con ?? reus.?The demo cratic partj hiw been totally demolished be cause it would not follow tb<- advice we gave it ia 1M)2. The few democrats who have ?a caped the wreck and on* safe in the next Con gress will do well to take a sensible hint, and TOte for the amendment to the constitution abolishing slavery. We have had trouble enough about slavery, and the democrats have b">en beaten often enough in their attempt* to uphold this doomed institution. Now let ua all unite to get It out of the way. .tnd so clear the held for new issues in 18t>?. If the demo crat? in Congress persist in lighting the pro slavery battle over again they can only expect another defeat. It will be better for them and the party to acquiesce cheerlully in what is in evitable.
