CAMPBELL & M'DEHMOT,
EDITORS A>I) PROPRIETORS. HATI KDAY MOB\|\(;, DEC 2. A "loot on If itud m "Foot In II.'* Some of our "reorganize! democrat*" at last plead not guilty to the charge of hostility to the new .-state of West Vir. ginia. One of their organs has patched up an answer. Hear it: The Democratic party in West Vir ?:inia has been charged with hostility to tie new Slate, and our political ene mies have often endeavored on the eve of an election to turn to their own ad vantage the intluence of such a charge. Just a.-, thev claimed to be the onlv simon-pure Union men, tbey arrogated to them?elv*? all the genuine love of the State of West Virginia. Both claims were false, but we ail know that the leaders of the Republican party never hesitated long when it was ne cessary to tell a lalsehood in order to uttain some political advantage. And now hear the next sentence but one: The Democrats, and very many of\ the Republicans, making when t?m- ! bined it majority of the citizens of the Slate, think that the time and the man nor of the organization of West Vir ginia were wrong and legally indefen sible. Like many other acts of the late administration it was so plainly un constitutional that its apologists did not deny the fact. Was it ??false" to charge with hostili ty to the Xew State of West Virgiuia "nearly all of the Democrats,*' who op posed it** organization as "wrong, legal ly indefensible and so plainly uncon stitutional that its apologists did not deny the fact?" Then we don't know what hostility menus. If the Demo crats were not hostile to what they be lieved wrong, legally indefensible and plainly unconstitutional, it was dis honest in.them then. If they were thus hostile, it is dishonest in them to deny it now. The IM-mocratic [logician who is re sponsible for this argument, pnt bis foot on it before it fairly drew the breath of life. Itut dissatisfied, as weH ho might be, wit it his stifled plea, ho demurs to the charge made by the "Republicans," and produces asevidenceof their hatred of the new State an extract "from the tirade of the Hartford Timet, "? radical Republican sheet." If Satan is a saint the Hartford Time* is radically Republican. Of all the copperhead sheets saved from the popular wrath only by their insig nificance, it is the vilest. Why, even if the logical organ from which we have quoted, were radically Republican, the Hartford Times in comparison would still wriggle in the filthiest copperhead democracy. Any one who reads "the tirade" with the slightest care, though ignorant of its paternity, must see "the trail of the serpent over it all," We fear the democratic fact is no more reliable than the democratic argument. Did'nt somebody get a foot in it? ? The Washington correspondent of tho New ^ork Times Nitys the ques tion of admitting the claimants of seals from the rebellious Slates has almost ceased to attract discussion, in view of tho certainly that they will tip excluded from the start. Mr. Mcl'herson's rolls are primed, anil no names from anv State that went into the rebellion ap Jicar thereon. It lias lieen suggested that Mr. Mcl'hersou might put the names upon tliu roll with propriety, and that, as no business but the election or a Speaker ran be transacted before tho members are Bworn, the oath which all must take, would exclude those who could not take it. This would admit less than half a down of the Southern members. Xlut there is a serious objection to even this much. Once admitted, and the question raised, the Southern members, combining with tho Democratic members from the North, might prolong the coutest over the oath for days and weeks, ending in their exclusion, of course, but yet rain ing u question, never decided by Con gress, whether a name once entered upon tho roll can be stricken off, except upon expulsion. Fon the nine hundred aud ninety ninth time the press association and press gang at Washington send out their |H'rlodical rumors aliout the trial of Jell. Davis. One says "on the high est authority" that lie soon to be tried. This is immediately contradicted, next day reaffirmed antl so oil ad inflnitu 171 and to the disgust or everybody. Wo hope Jeff. Davis will either be tried, released, banished, or let nlone Someway, and that II there are any Idle military commissions and hangmen in Washington, they will summarily dis pose of about a baker's dozen or the professional liars who reed the intelli gent public from day to day with their dished up conglomerations" or deliber ate falsehood. What a gratification it would be to the reading community ir some modern Newgate "Dennis" had a chance "to work off" a lot of these fellows. The Message. Washington gossip says that the President has decided not to send Copies or his messago out in advauec. I It will consequently go out totheconu try by telegraph. It has I won complet ed, but may have more alterations or additions before it goes out. It is not very long, and opens with a resume or tho situation when Mr. Jobusnn was called upon to succecd Mr. Lincoln.; Eight States were then without any form or government, and, in organizing them, he was guided by the policy or Mr. Lincoln, as developed in his orders and plans while (he Johnson) was Governor or Tcnuessee. He respectful- j lv submits bis programme to Congress for endorsement or rejection. 1 Tim detectives of the Treasury De- j part meat have, it is stated, not only se cured the plate from which counter foils or coupons have been printed, but they profess 10 know the locality or a plate rroui Which legal tender notes have been printed, and they declare that this plate was engraved si the Treasury Department, and has been surrcpli tlously taken from there. This is a grave charge, aud must bo subotanU- ' alcd, although the known hostility of: the detectives lo the head of the curren cy printing bureau will lead many to1 suspect a "put up Job," ir oue of ihe Government plates is found in the bauds or counterfeiters, as alleged. Tub Cleveland people and papers are agitating propositions for one or more public parks in tbat city. The City Council have had the matter under consideration and report In ravor or three?one or theui to be on the lake shore and to Include a bathing beach. The Council deem ihe project entirely feasible. Kvery city ought to have at least one public square with fountains, trees aqd grass. How soon will we have one In Wheeling 7 ?me Hlilb Wet Vlr*lnl? Ut*lrjr? I'tCbllDS the lodlw-Why *?? ***?* ? meat Is not Dl?ch?*f^* Adjutant General Peirpoiut yesterday received a letter from Lienu Col. B. E. Fleming, oT the Sixth We* Virginia Cavmlrv, commanding a detachment, at port Alkali, X. T., fifty miles east of Julesburg, on the Platte river, In which Col. Fleming states that the detachment under him has had three different en ' gagements with the Indians. Of the last be says: "The Indians attacked usst this place on the 9th Inst., and captured some Stock. We mounted about sixty .men end pursued, cbarecd. routed and drot e them for ten miles into and across tbe river, retaking all the stock and killing five. We lost no men killed or wound ed. Thev were at least 300 strong, iand I think more, a* thev cro**d *?***? four miles the next night with *,000. go in^ south to winter, fhe boy* are after them now This detachment is in good ipirits and excellent health TheS? eral commanding has complimented us highly for conduct in action. The remainder of the regiment, Col. Fleming says, is at Platte Bridge, 120 miles above Fort Laramie,ou the North Platte. He adds: "This is a cold plaoe, and we are camped 00 miles from wood, still In shelter tents, with nothing to build quarters: The detachment of this regiment which has been doing such meritorious duty against the Indians is composed of a large proportion of the men who were charged with mutinous conduct at Fort Leavenworth in July last. By some who are unacquainted with the facts, it is no doubt thought very strange that this regiment which has been in the service so long should be re tained when all other troops from this State have been mustered out. Every effort bas been made by Governor Bo re man to have this regiment also dis charged. EtTorts were made to have it discharged when it was first known that it had been ordered west, and because of the necessitous condition of the fam ilies of many of the men belonging to it, frequent applications have since been made, but without success. A necessity existed for troops in the west; and when they were ordered thither, the com manding General did not stop to inquire to what State they belonged, all being in the United States service; and such as were most available were sent. When Gen. Poirpoint visited the Sixth at Fort Leavenworth, last summer, he received assurances from Gen. Pope that the regiment would be mustered out in a short time. Bnt the hopes in spired by these assurances have not 1 been realized. We had hoped the men would have returned home before win ! ter, but the season is now so far advanc i ed, and they are so far from civilization, j that their places cannot readily be sup i plied this winter, and the probabilities are tliey will bo retained till spring. The last application for the muster out of the regiment, addressed byGen'l Peirpoint, under date of October 18th, to the General Commanding the De partment of the Missouri, was returned with the following endorsements: "Heap Quarters U. S. Forces, ??Kansas and the Territories, \ ??Fort Leavenworth, Nov. 2,1805. J ??* - 9 This regiment is now west of Fort Laramie, and is designated as one to be retained. It cannot be mus tered out till relieved by other troops; and it is so late in the season that wo cannot get troops out there before spring, it being some one thousand miles from here. The regiment will be relieved at the earliest possible moment. (Signed) "G. M. Doikje, ?'Major General Commanding."

We reproduce the following editorial article from Wednesday's Parkersburg Daily Times, as being decidedly worthy of a wider circulation that it could at tain in that journal. It is either a very profound article or else not?and we leave our readers to decide in which category it belongs. It seems to us the only category worthy of it, is the *'Ckt ' egorr of the InflniW," and we suggest i to our friend Judge Thompson, thai It I should And a plac. in hi? next edition 1 ..... -.1 L1? _?.l. j of that valuable work. is Thi Statcic?We would we had the power of the lightning to plaoe our views balbre the public. We ?ill do in a few momenta what we can. A proportion of our citizens have af filiated with the southern confederacy. Thev were among those who held that Houthernlsm and the gentlemen were avnonyms. The North has been com pelled from iu cold and inhospitable climate to be busy to rear her mouev and raise support for the people. Is ?that degrading? Ko. If man aids in . the production of sustenance, educ tion, refinement, he is the mas. The writer of the declaration of Indepen dence in saying that men were equal was as much a religious prophet as Isaiah,?as much a prophet of God. Do you not see that he wast What is the difference between me. the humble editor of the Times ,and President Johnson, or Queen % ietona? Simplv that they have more power to do good than I have. What is the dif ference between me and the humblest laborer on the street. Simply that I have a more extensive field than be has and vet if I do not work the power I have as well as he does I am less here after and should be less here than be is. There are principles founded upon our organic law which we wish to im press fully. Ceour De Leon, Front De Beouf Brian Gilbert and hundreds of others set up themselves as the masters of chivalry. This was the world, then. They had no conception that Gerth was their equal. No man of the Russian nation who lived as a serf until the present reign thought himself the equal of Romanoff. The question is, was he not if he performed his duty as well in his sphere? If you will examine carefully you will find two facts in our late rebellion which have been mainly overlooked. 1st. Slavery was an intermediate cause of the rebellion, not a primary. The primary runs back for generations. Virginia was settled by the reckless chevaliers of Charles the Ist's day. South Carolina by the Huguenota and the same spirit was perpetrated by both, The memory of the old instead oftbe prospect of the world's progress. Per sonal pride, the memory of genera tions?the bones under ground, was the original spirit of the whole thing. I will give something good to find a man among the whole Southern Confederacy who feared, in the election of Mr. Lin coln any attack upon or in jury to slavery. As we have said it was onlv an intermediate element that sustained the old programme of the few govern ing the many, because the fow drew their ideas of social life and the world, from the past?when the world was half ?yea more than half savage and would preserve that status because they are determined to impress upon social cir cles?that youth, strength, beauty,birth, wealth, exemption from labor, Ac., should bo the governing power, and all else was "poor white trash." The tournaments of East Virginiaare intended to foster the past in a feeble way, instead of looking to the future and the great principal of equality. From an examination of our Southern files we think much more work is to be done yet to suppress the real rebellion and give us a firm, loyal, equal people s government. We might detail but now only make suggestions. Brother Wharton, do you know we're seriously afraid somebody has been presenting you with another dozen of quails?or of something equally exhll erating. ^ The Washington correspondent of the New York Commercial, speaking of President Johnson's determination to retrench the expenses of government, says one of the Secretaries had his esti mates returned three times with per emptory orders to 4,cut them down."
