merce has amaied the Copperhead jonrnals
ao much as what they are pleased to term
the apathy of the people." , For these
same Jonrnals of which the World was
ehief hare been wearing of iate a defiant
and do-it-if-yoa-dare manner toward the
GoTernment. T&ey have been like Irish
men at Donnybrook Fair, "spoiling for a
fight," anxious for somebody to pitoh in
to them. The World, especially, had
all the swagger and bravado
of a professional bully. It fired off semi
rebellious sentiments with a sort of tri
umph. It laid in effect j '-Touch ns if
yon dare, Mr. Lincoln. Interfere with ns
in the slightest degree, allow the least of
your shoulder-strapped minions even to
lay his Utile finger on us, and an out
raged people, rising in their might, with
all the terrifio power with whioh a nation
bands against oppressors, will .hurl yon
froJi your tyranioal throne and revenge
the insult to the liberty of the press."
Bo rente i the World. And now what
happens T Why, Mr. Lincoln, in the very
faoe of :his nighty menace, has
been and gone and done it For
three days the offioe of the New Tork
World was closed by military authority.
The people knew It, the New Tork riot
ers (Qorernor Seymour's "friends")
koew it it went forth everywhere across
the land. Was there any mighty commo
tion T Was there any sign of an outraged
people rising in their terrible wrath to
revenge the blow at their libei ties ? Was
there any infuriated mobofblooiy riotm?
Not a bit of it The people assented, qui
etly, to the act, and acqoiesoel, with a
feeling of satisfaction, in it. We hope the
World will learn from this that the nation
is aa yet by no means ready to rush into
revolt, at 'evolutionary bidding.

REPORT OF TREASURY INVESTIGATING COMMITTEE.
BUTTII.
WaSHUOTov, May 24. The evidence
before the Treasury investigating Commit
tee, is in some oases of the most conflicting
nature. A leading railroad man and an
other prominent oitiien of New Tork,
swear positively to an attempt on the part
of a certain Bank Note Company, to bribe
Mr. Clarke to abandon the effort to print
Government notes and bonds in the De
partment. The President of the Bank
Note Company swears directly and posi
tively to the contrary.
The evidence about alledged immorali
ties in the private life of officials in the
Printing Bureau, consists almost wholly
of the affidavits of prostitutes submitted
to the Committee by the deteotive who
worked up the oase. The Committee has
not deoiied whether to summon these wo
man or not. But a single lady employed
in the Department has been found to make
any charge of the kind. She swears that
oa the oooasion one ef the subordinate
Clerks in the Burem winked at her; and
that at another time he made an ambigu
ous remark to her, which was susceptible
of an improper construction.
a. iirii fbok oiiieax h'olillav.
It is understood that Gen, McClellannas
written to one of his friends that in his
opinion unless Grant has anderated Lee's
strength the only contingency In whioh
his campaign is likely to prove a failure
is a failure to receive sufficient supplies.
DEMOCIATIO raaSIDKHTHLCAHDIDATX.
Democratic leaders in Congress begin
to agitate the propriety of postponing
their nomination of a Presidential candi
date, till the close of the summer campaign
THE IRON GLADS.
The House Naval committee listened to
day to a majority report in favor of New
London as a site for Iron Cld Navy Yard,
an exceedingly elaborate minority report
in favor of Leagne Island has been pre
pared.
The House Military Cemmittee agreed
this morning to squelch all propositions to
increase the pay of army officers.
The administration members talk of
holding a joint caucus from the two Houses
to eonsider the questions raised by the ap
plieation of Senators and Representatives
from Arkansas for admission. Tbe whole
question of reconstruction is involved and
the party is utterly without any fixed poll
oy of the subject. The three Representa
tives were heard at length in support ef
their claims before the House Election
Committee this morning. They made
plausible statements and some of the Com
mittee are inolined to receive their appli
cation with considerable favor.
ARRIVAL OF WOUNDED.
A train loaded with fifteen hundred of
our -wounded from, the Frederioksbnrg
hospitals came in last night; those not
able to eome by rail were placed on trans
ports and sent around by water.; The
wounded are all removed from Frederioks-
bura;. ......

Second Dispatch. WASHINGTON. May. 25.
The feeling over the news from the front
as announced in an offioial . bulletin, is
hopeful bat not enthusiastic.
Nothing is expected from Sherman till
the fall of Atlanta.
There are minors that .th rebels are
evacuating Richmond, but they are utterly
onfonnded.
The House Noval Committee took np
the subject of the construction of the Na
val Engines.
This morning Qnintard of New York,
and Bushnell of New Haven, were examin
ed at some length. The Committee ex
pect to report upon the subject before Con
gress finally adjourns.
The Tariff bill will not oome before the
House until Saturday, and probably not
till Monday next. Large numbers of
Peansylvanians here, were urging still
higher duties upon steel and iron. It is
said that the bill will, on an average, oome
fully np to the resolution temporarilyad
ding to the present rates.
Several more witnesses were examined
by the Treasury Investigating Committee
this morning.
The aoousers begin to feel as though they
were In a bad predicament. They have
as yet utterly failed to sabetantiate or even
give b reasonable show of probability to a
single ohargo. This, too, in the face of
the faet that so bitter an enemy of the ad
ministration, and so violent aa aoouser if
the Department aa James Brooks is a lead
ing member of the committee.
A statement in a New York paper, par
porting .o give an aosonnt of Cabinet
meeting yesterday, at which certain mem
bers denonnoed the policy of the Govern
ment in the recent Spanish extradition
ease, and in suppression of newspapers, is
utterly and absolutely unfounded. -
The debate in the Senate to-day looks as
if the gentleman having the assurance to
olaim a seat in that body from Arkansas
stood a very slim chance, indeed, of geU
ting it Charges are made that he voted
for the Secession Ordinance in Arkansas.

impetuous, with great steadiness, and a
heavy volley from the rifles of the oolored
troops brough' the rebels io a bait Thsy
formed again, however, and advanced
more steadily, when again they were met
with unflinching bravery, and finding
they could make no impression left th

seen in our front
