And to-day there is under tho ciatrol of tho rebellion only about :'(1, IMiO tjpiaro miles of territory or about olio-fourth ol tho territorial area originally elainvd. During tho year, by thu capture of Yieksburg ami Port Miid-"n, the relad armies of the Mis r i - jpi Valley were disposed of, and ihogivat river opened to its mouth t.w.i, practically, rescuing from tho rchhllion the S'utes of Mississippi, Ar- I a :!';, Loiii: iaua and Texas.

'The-:-.- !,, THI DVTT OF WHIOIf HEX. Siuco the election we fear there is a collapse nod want of effort among the Union men of the county. While the enemy is busy selecting his officers, brigading his forces, and drilling hit troops, tho Union men must not lie idle in camp and be unprepared for the battlo. Tho most important Presiden tial contest in the history of the nation will take place during the coming Sum mer and Fall, and there is a -weighty responsibility resting upon the Union men of the country. The groat busi ness of prosecuting tho war uuti! tho rebellion is suppressed tnust be kept constantly iu viiw, and no Union man must he turned aside by tho cry of Abolition or by complaints against the Administration. We must remain unit ed upon the simple issue of suppos ing tho rebellion and restoring the Union, and if Slavery falls by tho war, or by the voluntary act of the South ern people, let it fall. No good Union man will regret it, but on the contraiy will rejoice a t it. It is tho duty of Union men to or ganize bj townships and school dis tricts and to keep alive their organi zations. Let them form companies and associations and meet often for' drill und discipline in political warfare. Every bush which holds a Butternut must bo attacked. At the last election the majority of tho opposition in the utility was reduced from 1809 to GS8, and tho majority in the city to 18. Theso may be overcome by thorough organization and a vigorous fight. Tho Vullandigluim movement and tho Val- landigham leaders are in bad odor with the people, many of whom acknowledge that they have been deceived. 1 ho masses everywhere begin to understand that the truly Democratic party that From the Nwhville Union. Th Voice of Henrjr Clay. " On which side would Henry Clay be, were he alive to-day?" asked a Tcnuessco Whig, tho other day a. Tennessee Whig, who, after following for years, tho standard of Henry Clay, strayed away in 18C1 into the treason able folds ot secession and disunion. Could he, really, have felt a doubt? Could he believe, for a moment, that Henry Clay would be on any other side than that of his country for tho Union and against any and all its foes? His own treachery nnd cowar dice, not his knowledge of tho history of tae great western statesman and ora tor, must have suggested tho interrog atory. Were Henry Clay alive to-day, ho would bo found exerting his great talents and influence to rebuke trea son and traitors everywhere, and keep tho pcoplo of tho loyal States up to the true standard of liiith in Kepublican institutions, and to their duty to them selves, to posterity, and to the human race to push on tho war, until, as Gov. Johnson has said, "treason is made odi ous and traitors aro punished. Jcar the close of his career, on tho 17th of May, 1851, Mr. Clay wrote a letter to Tlios. J. Stevenson, Ksq., in which his viewsof the duty of the people of tho United States were (iistmcm' ex pressed. The following is an extract trom that letter : " You ask what is to bo done if South Carolina secedes ? 1 answer unhesita tingly that the Constitution and laws of tho United States viust continue to he enforced there, with all the power of the Union if necessary, secession is trea son, and if it were not it would bo a virtnal diseolution-of the Union, l-'or if any one State may secede every State may secede; and how long in such a state of things could wo keep together?

As to tho situation of affairs in Grant's department, tho Gencral-in- chiel says it has been alleged that iirant positively uisoDeycu tho in structions of his superiors. It is hard- necessary to remark that Grant nover disobeyed an order moreover, ho has never complained that tho Gov ernment did not furnish him all tho means and assistance in its power to facilitate the execution of any plan. ho saw fit to adopt. Iho General fiiic'resls that, as tho rebel army lives upon tho country through which it passes, the Eedcral irmy do uio samo, as it facilitates ra pidity of movement. Our command ers in rebel States hardly ever find sup plies, and in border States it is difficult to distinguish between friends and enomies. , Iii regard to sutlers, he says tho en- tiro abolition of tho system would rid tho army of tho incumbrance of sut ler s wagons on tho inarch, and tho nuisance of sutlers' stalls and booths in camp. It would improvo tho discipline and cfiiriency of troops in many ways, and particularly by removing from camps tho evils of drunkenness. It is not difficult to sutlers to act the part of spies, informers, smugglers, and con traband traders.

In somo cases a longer delay iu payment ensues than tho applicant inticipates ; this caused by 1 aynias- ters being absent in the field making payment to troops, and access cannot ho had to rolls by tho officers to whom tho applications aro sent, to enable them to make up tho accounts until their return. On tho. 2d instant, I applied for pay for the wife of a prisoner of -war, and yesterday received a draft for tho amount due. About the samo time J made other applications, and havo ro ccived notice that tho money would be forwarded as soon as .Paymasters ro turned from duty in tho field. I mere ly mention this to show that theso do lays aro unavoidable, and that tho up plications aro not neglected. Seldom or ever is payment delayed more than a month from tho time tho application Is mndo.

A soldier presents a trophy found in Bragg's headquarters just after tholato battlo of Chickumauga a dead dog, well stuffed, having a brass collar. on, with the inscription, "Jefferson Davis', cur, Easy." Easy is a name derived from the Latin word Jlnsis, which sig nifies sword, showing that the cur was 0110 of Davis's dogs of war. . It is sup-, posed to havo been loft by him on his, lato visit to Bragg's army in memoriam. It seems to have died a natural death. It is a cross of tho blood-hound, aud shows features of tho' two famous Southern breds, Secession and Chiv- ilry.
