Lot it be recorded. ity and the largest liberty these blos sings, which it confers upon tho hum blest citizen in the State, it is tho mis sion of the American Government to presort and extend to the human race, to tho people f tho world. Therefore step toward uniting our armies in that we are to-day fighting the battlo of the quarter-and compelling the rebels O world. It required centuries of Chris- retire Jroni their position in tho immc- " of tna ralrteU Bey. ' The gallant soldiers from Fairfield s give Yallandighaiu little comfort We -. have returns from three Regiments Containing Fairfield companies in the Army of the Cumberland, viz: tho 1st, 17th, nd 90th. The following is the j. vote'. - ' FIRST REGIMENT. Brough.., ' Vallandigham Brough's majority 17TH REUIMK.NT. 1 Brongh. Vallandigham. . i , 90th regiment. ' Brough '.; ......... Vallandigham ..203 ..

Tod published elsewhqro, it will ho seen i that Ohio has furnished her quota' of '.troops under the first call of 1863, and " that therefore, tho first drufl ordered will not lake place. ;, "A draft however, will commoneo on i the 5th of January, 1861, unless Ohio's " quota, about thirty-two thousand, o the 800,000 lately called for by the President, should be raised by v'olun- ,tary enlistments. ii! It is thought that with proper effort tno number may be raised without t ' draft. The government ofl'ors to eacl ; new recruit a bounty of 8302, 27 of o which, and one month's pay, will be paid at the time of mustering in; 810 , two months after muster, and the re- , maindorin instalmonti of S40 at the ,,' and of every six months. ' The $300 exemption clause will prob ably bo repealed when Congress meets and the sum requirod be fixed at 8600 , or perhaps $1,500. It is to tho interest of those who cannot go and nro nimble to pay a largo exemption sum, to assist in raising the quota by volunteer ing. With aueh liberal pecuniary induee u raents, the numbor required should be 1 raised without a draft. HEWS OF THE DAT. The news whjch we publish this morn ing in cur special dispatches from Chat tanooga is 'of great importance, .ihe event reported being tho first decided tianity and science to bring. uoout a civilisation out of which could grow the American Government ;lt required a new country away from monarchies arid empires in which to fbund it; it required an ago producing a number of tho ablest and purest men that ever blest tho world to lay itsfoundutions and organize it, and if it should now be overthrown, " the clock of tho world will go back, a century." Wo nro to day settling tho question whether the pooplo shall govern themselves, or whether they shall be forever ruled by a few who are inoro fortunate, or more ambitious, or more wicked, or stronger than tho rest, and we nro therefore fighting the battle of the world. These things have been often said before, and perhaps need not bo said agahi, Tho people need no other nor higher reasons for sustaining the Gov ernment than patriotism and self pro tection. Those who love their country and do not wish to'see it divided, hum bled, and finally destroyed; those who do not wish to sec Ohio a border State exposed to raids and tho first desolu tion jjf War; those who do not wish to sco the State overrun with rebels and their properly destroyed, will seo the duty and the necessity of responding to tlie'luto call of tho President for vol untcers. , Those who wish to seethe war speedily and successfully termi unfed, und tho Union restored, will use all their energy to fill the quota, re plonish the old regiments, and thus en able them to make short work of the rebellion. Those who have a State pride in making the draft light, should do all in their prowcr to assist recruit iiiL'. It is tho interest of even those who oppose the war to stimulate vol unteering, for tho druit will not dis criminate between thoso who favor nix. those who oppose the wnr. By a Un ion of tho Northern people and by promptly furnishing tho Government with tho number of men needed, tho rebellion before another year will bo virtually, if not entirely, suppressed, and a great majority of oiir'gullaiit vol unteors will come marching homo to their families and friends, with proud stops. and flyiug banners, to receive tho honor due to tho who risk all to save their country. "PEACE" OS THE CONFEDERATE BASIS. Vol In the Army of the Cumberland. , THE BATTLE OF THE WORLD Til E cam; for more hem. An English statesman said that the ', Americans in this struggle were fight ing the battle of tho world. This will i be found true when wo consider the -principles and institutions involved. Whatever may be tho issue of the con test, it will affect tho pooplo of the ,. world, either lor good or evil, for cen turies to ;orao. Ono of tho first prin '. ciplot for which tho government is eon ' tending, is the fundamental principle of Democracies and Republics, vie: tho . right of tho majority to rule. There- , volt of tho Southern Stutcs is a most wicked and unjust rebellion of a minor ity against a mojority, uocatiso they , are unwilling to submit to tho rule of , the majority. It is therefore a rebel -! lion against a prineiplo which lies at 1 the foundation, not only of tho Govern- niontof the United States, but at tho i foundation of Democracy und Repub , llcanism. .Another principle for which the Government is contending, is that "', of Union against Secession, or, which ,' is ,tho same, of organization and life against dissolution and (loath. It con tends for the right to defend its exist . ence and to maintain its integrity. To ' admit the right of secession is to nd- l mit the right of a few disaffected cili- ., Bens to divide the nation and to over ' throw tho Government. It is to ad 1 mit that the heart, tho head, or the ". hand, are Independent of tho body, and i may at any timo withdraw. It is to admit tho right, when curried out, of J " New York city to secede from the State ' of Now York, or of Cincinnati to secede ,.. irom the State of Ohio, or of a county to secedo from tho State. Therefore the Government contends against n principle which destroys at once both , Government and nationality. A third prineiplo for which tho Government is : contending is tho right of a Govern ment, founded upon tho will of tho mu- Jority, to coerce a disaffected and re bellious minority into submission. In , different form of Government tho . , right of coercion would not he ques- I' tioaed. But iu a Government founded ""upon tho consent of a majority of the !'-;')copl8 of different States, this rlgiit . . way bo questioned. Tho Government ., i therefore, if it succeeds, settles tho ques tion of the right and the power of a pop ular government to compel tho sub , ' mission oi any minority of thoso upon whoso will it rests.

Wo bear of Democrats who before tho election were opposed to tho war and who voted for Vullaudighum, but who now declare themselves in favor of prosecuting the war until tho re hellion is suppressed, 'lhey ore satis lied that tho great people of tho loyal States uro in fuvor'of war, and are de termined to restore tho Union by war The question has been fairly' put, there has been' a freo expression of will by ballot, and all over tho North tho pco pie have : declared lor a vigorous pros ecution of the war by the most tri uniphant and overwhelming majorities Theso J'emocrals, who nro honest, say they do not wish to opposo tho will of tho pooplo, so fairly and decidedly ex pressed. Wo hear of other Pomncrnls who since tho election compliment Brough, and uoknowlediro that ho is an honest man, and was one ol'lhe bcstStalo An ditors and financiers in Ohio. We are gratified to know that men are overcoming party prejudice, and thai they are beginning to seo that tho Un ion organization is tin honest nnd pat riotic one, organized for tho sole pur pose of sustaining the government and restoring the Union, ami not to break down any party, nor for tho Abolition of Slavery. diutc front ,of our position On Mon day night a detachment uhdor Col. Stanley of tho 13th Ohio, crossed the river below Chattanooga, surprised and drove tho rebels from a ridgo oil the south sido of tho river, thus opening communication with ' Bridgeport, and flanking tho enemy on Lookout Moun tain. This, as wo understand the sit uation, opens tho river between Chat tanooga nnd Bridgeport, and this ut onco secures tho relief to our army which for some time has been on short rations. Jo appreciate fully the im portance of this event, ever, if it se. cured nothing further than tho open ing of tho rivir and tho railroad, we must understand tho difficulty in reach - ingChattanoogaby the mountain roads which were tho only ones that could be traveled with safety, and tho condi tion of these was such that they were almost impassible. When Gen. Rosc ornns returned from C'hattanootra it took him two days to make tho trip to Stevenson. Mules nnd horses would sink almost out of sight in tho quag mires and the dead carcasses of these animals were thickly scattered along tho road. The diflicuty of supplying a largo army over such roads, and un- ler such circumstances, may readily bo imagined. But this is all over now; the river is open ; our forces are large enough to keep it open ; and if, as our correspondent predicts, tho enemy is compelled to evacuate Lookout Moun tain, ihero will be no difficulty in ac cumulating supplies at Chattanooga, and making it tho base of operation against tho rebels further South. The victory, therefore, is an important onci and all tho more gratifying because it was gained with but little loss of life the casualties being only five killed md eighteen wounded. Gen. .Piilnicr has been assigned to the command of tho 11th Army Corps, in fieri. Grant's department Thero is nothing important from tb Army of tho Potomac. There was an immense uncondition al Union meeting at Baltimore hist night. A spcc'uil dispatch gives a good idea of its spirit. , Our Vicksburg special contains nn account of tho highly important expo lition of Gen. Mcl'hcrson's command from that city to Canton, and other points in Mississippi, which resulted in the destruction ol a number of rebel mills and factories, tho defeat and dis persion of a bund of rebel cavalry, and tho general discomfiture of tho guer rillas who infest that section. Only ono man was killed during the march tn expedition of 130 men under Major Osband, has returned from tho Yazoo country to Vicksburg, having routei during their advance, a superior force of tho enemy and taken a considera ble number of prisoners.

Foreign dispatches announce the death of Richard Whaloly.D.D., LL.D., Archbishop ot Dublin, probably tho most eminent and able of tho modern prelates of tho English Church, lie was born in London 17S7, and was ed ucated at Oxford. 1 u 1831 ho was con seeruted Archbishop of Dublin and Bishop of Gladalagh, and since IS 10 ho also held tho bishopric of Kildare. lie was an active and earnest contro versialist, und wroto numerous works that have been most efficient us argu ments against infidelity. His "II istor io Doubts Relative to Napoleon Bona parte" is tho most curious argument in fuVor of theSuvior and this existence on enrth, that has ever been written. Besides numerous religious works, Archbishop Whately wrote n book on logic, and ono on rhetoric, which arc much ned in odnealion.nl institutions in Givnt Britain and I hi country. The Richmond Enquirer of tho 16th inst., contains tho following editorial, entitled ''Peace," which must profound ly interest nltko the friends and cue niiesof our country; Savo on our own terms wo can ac cept no. peace whatever, and must fight until doomsday rather than yield an iota of them, and our terms are : Recognition by the enemy of tho in dependence of tho Confederate Stutes. Withdrawal of Yankeo forces ft'om every foot of. Confederate ground, in cluding Kentucky and Missouri. Withdrawal of Yankee soldiers from Maryland, until that Stale shall deeido by a free vote whether she will remain iu the old Union or nsk admission into tho Confederacy. Consent on tho part of tho Federal Government to give up fo tho Confed eracy its proportion of the navy as it stood at the time ot secession, or pay for the sanio. Yielding up of all protonsion on the part of the Federal Government to that portion of the old territories which lie west ot the Conlederato slates. An equitable settlement on tho basis of our absoluto independence and equal lghts, ot all accounts ot the public debt and public lands, and the advan tages accruing Irom loreign treaties. lheso provisions, we apprehend, comprise the minimum ot what we must require beloro wo lay down our arms, 'that is to say, the .North must all we, nothing. Tho whole pretension of that conntiy to prevent, by force, tho seperation of tho States, must be abandoned, which will bo e-qiiivalent- to an avowal that our ene mies were wrong from tho first, and, of course, as they waged a causeless and wicked war against us, they ought in strict justice, to bo required, accor ding to the usage in such cases, to re imburse to us the whole of our expen ses and losses in tho course of tho war, Whether this last proviso is to bo in sisted upon or not, certain wo are, that we cannot have any pence at all, until wo shall be in position, not only to de mand and exact, but also to enforce and collect, treasure for our own reimburse incut, out of the wealth' cities in the enemy s country. In other words, un less wo can destroy or scatter their ar lines, nnd break up their Government we can have no peace, and, it wo can do that, then wo ought not only ex tort Irom them our own lull terms and ample acknowledgement of their wrong but, also, a handsome indemnity for the trouble an 1 expense caused to us by their crime- Now, we are not yet in position to dictate those terms to our enemies, with Rosccruns' army still in the heart of the country, and Meade still on Vir ginia soil; but though it is too soon to propose such conditions to them, )'et it is important, that wo should keep them plainly boforo our own eyes as the only admissible basis of any con- , y ... il i! l :.- ecivablO peace. IMS wen uxeu in iue Confederate mind, thero will bo no moro fearful looking lor news Irom Europe, as if that blessed poaco were to como to us over tho sea, and not 10 bo conquered on our own ground. There will be no more gaping for hints of re cognition, and tilling or the belly with the Fast wind; no moro distraction or division from the single momentous business of bracing up every nerve and sinew of the country for battle. It is csjiceially now, ut tho moment when great and perhaps desisivo bat tles nro impending at two or three points, thai wo think it most essential lo insist upon the grand and entire magnificence of the stake und cuuso, Once more wo say it is all or noth ing. 1 his Uonlederacy on the j iiukeo nation, one or the other, goes down, down to perdition. 1 hat is to say, one or the other must ibrleit its national existence and lie at the mercy of its mortal enemy. e all know by this tune t no late in store lor us il wo succumb, lho oilier purl V has no smaller stake. As surely us wc completely ruin their armies and without that is no peace nor truce at all so surely shall we make them pay our war debt, though we wring it out of their hearts. And they know it well, and, therefore, they can not make peace except through their u tor exhaustion and absolute in ability to strike another blow. The stake they have to forleit then il'lhev lose this dreadful game, is as vi tat us ours. So is the stake to bo won il'they win anything. It, is no less than the entire possession of our whole coun try, with us in it, and everything that is ours, from Ohio to the Rio Grande, lo have and to hold, to them and their heirs forever. But, on the other hand, what -wo mean to win is uttor seperation from litem for all time. Wo do not want to govern their country, but after lev ying upon it what seeuieth good to us by way of indemnity, we leavo it to commence its political life again from the beginning, hoping that tho lesson may have made them sadder und wis cr ankecs. We shut them out forever, with all their nuclean and scoundrelly ways, intending to lead our lives hero in our own Confederate way, within our own well guarded bounds, and without, us St. John says, are dogs. And let no Confederate feeble knees and tremulous backbone say to us, this complete triumph is impossible; say that wo must bo content with some kind of compromise, andgivo and take; on the contrary, wo must gain all or lose all, and that the Confederates will indeed win the giant gtuno, wo take to be as certain as any future event iu this uncertain world. Meade's nrmy and Rosecrans' once scattered, Lincoln can got no more ar mies. Tlio draft turns out manifestly fruitless. Both the German and Irish element aro now for pence. Tho Yan kees huvo to bear tho burnt of tho war themselves; but in the meantime their inevitable bankruptcy is advancing like an armed man. llungryruin has them in the wind. It cannot bo long before the Cabinet of Washington will have, indeed, to consider seriously pro posals lor ponce, under auspices ami circumstances very different from the present. For the present the wnr rolls and thunders on. and -may God defend ihe right.

A correspondent of tlio Cincinnati Commercial gives the following account 'of the Colliervillo fight., in which our distinguished General, Sherman, again displayed his splendid-lighting quali ties : General Sherman had rather a nar row 'escape in going to Corinth tho other day. Ho started upon a special train, with bis own regiment, tho 13th Regulars, as scouts, on Sunday last. Arriving at Colliervillo, some twenty miles from here, he found tho rond cut nnd a force of at least 2,000 men, (some say 4,000,) with several pieces of ar tillery investing the place. ; Just be foro his arrival, an unconditional sur render had been demanded and ro luscd. General Sherman immediately threw himself and his escort into a lit tle earth-work, where Colonel Anthony , with tho OGtli Indiana, was. Tho en tiro forco was about 600 men, nnd with out artillery. General Sherman as sumed command ijnd fought with tho samo energy and intrepidity that has marked his conduct on great battlo fiolds, for nearly five hours, repeatedly repulsing four times tho number of his own men. Members of tho General's staff led several desperato charges, in one of which Lieutenant James was wounded. Inspired by tho General's example, his command fought like he roes. Somo twenty, negroes, officers' servants, imitating the cxamplo of the soldiers, took weapons and fought bravely. Two of thorn were killed in tho action. A Commissary building being in their way, and affording shel ter to the rebels, General Sherman of fered a two-months' furlough to anj' soldior who would burn it. A brave lad, whoso name wo could not learn, succeeded in firing the building. Con sidering tuo numbers ot tho enemy, it was a very poor fight on their part. They had laid a plan to capture Gen eral Sherman. They allowed tho reg ular morning train to pass, nnd imme diately cut tho road beyond Collicrville, ai.d then passed around so as to get between tho train and Memphis., lho General was cornered, but not caught. It was a good plan, and only good fighting was necessary to havo made it successful. It may seem strange that the rascals could have such accurate intelligence of General Sherman's move ments. But it will ho so as long as the Government recognizes guerrillas as belligerents. Ono man was killed with the oath of allegiance in his pocket. (Ynotlicr bad bis leg broken, and was left by tho rebels on tho field, who came every day to town to sell vege tables lo tlio soldiers, lhey aro loyal citizens to-day and. pestiferous guer rillas to-morrow; and wo need not wonder that they are able to get relia ble intelligence about every thing that is going on hero.
