WedneBday Morning, March 12, *82.
Better and Mure of It*
The news keeps getting better and bet
ter. The little bit of bad lack down at
Newport was just calculated to make per
plerelish the news from other quarters.
. To-day we have the greatest news of the
war. Manassas is onrs?without a blow '
or a gun fired! This is what we have long
believed would take place eventually, but
we had never hoped for it so soon. The
whole array on the lower I'otomac has
fallen back, the despatch says.
The President's Flsa-AH p.rtie>
The special and surprise message of the
President on the subject of slavery, has
cut the knot of the Texed question and rec
onciled all differences, if we may judge
from the universal satisfaction with which
it is welcomed. Radicals and conserva
tives receive it with equal delight, each
claiming that i t is in the line of their own
policy. The New York Tribune which has
been olamorons for immediate and univer
sal emancipation, and has held any sup
pression of the rebellion worthies that did
not secure the destruction of slavery, can
hardly find words to express its delight
over the President's message, and the New
^ ork Herald, which has opposed emanci
pation with all its energy, and treated any
damage to slavery as necessarily an out
rage on the Constitution, is equally grati
fied with the message, and considers it n
death blow to the emancipationists.
The truth is that the proposition of the
President is not in the line of the extreme
liews of either the radical emancipation
ists, or of the pro-slavery conservatives.
It is a simple suggestion that the General
Government shall offer to share the cost of
emancipation with aoy State or States
willing to adopt the measure. This im
plies of course that slavery is an evil, and
that the slave States hare good reason to
wish to be rid of it. But it also implies,
as the message iudeed asserts plainly
enough, that it is not a matter which the
General Government can touch, without
the consent of the States. The movement
lor emancipation must originate with the
people of the States where slavery exists,
and the President asks Congress to say that
wherever and whenever the people move for
this reform, the General Government will
generously co-operate with them. If all par
ties are ready to accept this moderate and
unobjectionable basis of action, the whole
slavery difficulty is solved, so far as the
political relations of the question are con
cerned. The President's argument for his
measure as one of Belf-preservation has
much Torce. Doubtless the rebel leaders
would* despair of gaining over any of the
border slates after such states had inaug
urated a scheme of emancipation Whether
the President's proposition, if Congress
adopts it, will lead to any immediate move
ments in tho border states for the abolition
of slavery may be doubtful. But a stand
ing offer from the general government of
help in such an enterprise will have a good
moral effect, and eventually there will
doubtless grow up an emancipation party
in all these states.
For the present, the adoption of the
President's suggestion by Cougress would
have the good effect to shelve all the fan
ciful and disorganizing schemes on tho
snbject by which popular opinion is in
danger of being distracted and demoralized
in the free States, and to re-assure the
people of the South that the General Gov
ernment will not inaugurate any movement
for the abolition of slavery, or touch it I
anywhere without the free consent and in- J
vitation, the inevitable effect of a state of
war of course excepted. While such a
declaration as this is unanimously sustained
at the North, the most jealous of slave
holders can have no pretense for seeking
the destruction or the Union to insure the
safety of slavery. And yet the declaration
would be most satisfactory to the enemies
of slavery, as indicating that the General
Government is committed to the policy of
freedom, and that its action will hence
forth bs in that direction, with only such
limitations as the constitution and laws
Thus the President's proposition is a
peace measure, in several ways?peace be
tween hostile parties among loyal men,
*nd a proffer of peace to the insurgent
States. It is a coup d'etat, in fact, display
ing much sagacity in its inception, signifi
cant in its aim and purpose, aod likely to
be most important in its effects.

The following Irqm that sterling sheft,

commended to that class of old fogies who
have faith in nothing but precedent! and
"Nothing makes alive like war, if noth
ing kills like it. It sets all the wits, the
energies of people in operation, and^gal
vanixes into almost superhuman activity
both civilian and soldier. Throwing rou
tine in a great measure to one side, it pre
sents novel situations and exigencies, de
manding capacities that anticipate
events, and be prepared to deal with them
as they arise. It calls for statesmen?not
mere politicians?who have observed
closely the characteristics of the people to
be governed; who understand their strong
and weak points, and who, covering up
these, can turn those to the best advan
tage; who have alike at their disposal an
intimate knowledge cf details, with a
readiness of educing therefrom general
principles, nnd who combine with ^ these
qualities eminent industry and xeal in the
nation's service. In a crisis like the pres
ent, when great public, questions are
sprung upon Congress in "an hour, when
unexpected events may compel the men nt
the wheel to veer to this or that point of
the compaBS, it is evident that examples
draw front our own past history or that of
other countries can furnish little guidance;
much less can political platforms present
anv safe rnle of action. These may do
we'll enough when the publio servants bav?
little to do save traveling on their annual
rounds in true borse-mill fnBhion. But
they areas inapplicable at present as would

Somehow our improvement always costs
us pretty dear. It has beenso all through
the war, and the affair at Scwport News
is a fresh illustration of it. The enemy
show us our weak places, out they charge
high for doing so. There is one thing
though, we always improve the hint. If
anything is found wanting, the Govern
ment goes at it with prodigious energy to
supply the waut. We don't generally suf
fer but once in the same spot- It is dis
covered now that iron-clad steamers are
demanded, and the Government will have
them in plenty just as soon as unlimited
resources, energy and skill can snpply

lier prank. She is believed to be com
pletely disabled and laid on the docks. By
the time she is repaired we shall have a
doxen steamers more formidable than she,
and besides trom the tenor or the news
to-day, Gosport Navy Yard will by that
lime be in possession of Uncle Sam.
Tux "best sooiety" or Chicago has jus*
been astonished by the development of
another case of "domestic infidelity" in
high lite. The facts are on this wise:?
Jacob Harris is an ex-alderman; Mrs. Ja
cob Harris wauled n divorce from the ex
alderman; some of her relatives and rriends
undertook to get her one, a shrewd Cyp
rian was taken into their councils, who,
roi the sum of $600, agreed to get Mr. Har
ris into a position whiob would warrant
a suit for divorce. But the woman releut
*d when the ex-alderman was almost en
trapped and revenled to bim the whole
plot, and instead of the ex-official losing
his character nnd his wife br the same
rail stroke, the chier conspirators have
come to grief and now contemplate the
world andworldly matters through the bars
or a prison.
A Richmond correspondent of the Char
leston Courier throws considering light
upon the whiskey question in old Virginia,
lie says that "within six months two hun
dred additional distilleries have been es
tablished in Virginia, and that they are
buying up all the corn, their profits being so
enormous that they can afford to pay the
highest price for it." He next describes
the peculiar virtues of this corn whiskey
upon the human system :?"It carbonixes
(or burns into crust) the mucous mem
brane of the windpipe, sels the brain on
(ffe, and sends a cold tremor through the
system." A soldier taking half a doxen
nips is drunk for a week, aud a second or
thiid repetition of this experiment "drives
the breath out of bis body."
SoTinitn like the recent floods in Cali
rornia have ever been witnessed on this
continent, within the knowledge or its civ
ilised inhabitants. The 8an Francisco
lit raid says it has inflicted a blow upon
the State from which it will not recover in
hair a century. Thousands or the citixens
have been utterly baukrupted, and in round
numbers the loss may be estimated at
$50,000,000. A great many deaths by
drowning are reported, and piobably man;
hundred have met with a watery grave?
The town or Alvarado was six feet under
water at one time, and the inhabitants
fired many guns, to call attention to their
distress; but it was impossible to render
them any assistance.

A cmrlon* Lclt?r>baut the New State,
Tite r*-org?nl"d State, the Conitl
Editors Intelligencer :
Where are we after ten months of hopes
delayed, of expectations disappointed ?
Whut has the government of Wheeling'
done for us? What prospect have we of,
being admitted in the Union, with a Con
stitution which in a short very short clause
has made this a slave state to all eternity.
Was not the reorganization of the Gov
ernment at-Wheeling rather premature?
Would not our condition be more propitious
if instead of a state Government we bad
been admitted as n territory, u.'der the
auspices of the General Government at
Washington until the Confederates should
be driven out of the Stati, and then re-or
ganize the Government so as to embrace
not only a few counties, but all of the ter
ritory ot the old State, and then decide
roeepepuli whether slavery sball be an in
stitution or the State as heretofore?
In connection with the question of slave
ry, there is another of primary importance,
as it will seriously affect the future of the
Commonwealth. What is to be done with
the leaders of secession, and those slave
owners, who were the instigators of it?
Shall we, that tbe new Constitution may
become permanent, and its clause concern
ing slavery mny be fully protected, gratify
them with ft bill ofaumestv for post mis
demeanors, or shall we punish them by an
act ot attainder and confiscation ? Tbe
majority of the people are determined
to have a free State. They expect the pun
ishment of the leading traitors, while tbe
Convention and the legislature seem to be
I in favor of slavery and mercy; mercy,
j mercy to those men who have brought this
I war upon us I Who have endangered our
lives, who havo robbed us of onr property,
have beggared our families! aud who in a
country heretofore blessed with peace and
plenty hove caused devastation and ruiu I
The Convention has seen fit to introduce
in their Constitution, a mere patch work,
one clause of two lines, which forever riv
ets the chains of the African bondmeu.?
This clause is the most mischievous engine
by which the traitors may hope to recover
tbeir rights of citizenship, und to be able
to bring among us any number of slaves,
to be owned by a few privileged families,
tho future lords of tbe laud. But, as one
of the members of tbe Legislature was
telling me tbe other day, all this was done
to conciliate Kentucky! Conciliate Ken
tucky by ruining all our hopes, all our
prospects I May Kentucky sink to the
lowest depths of perdition, if, in order to
keep her in the Union, we Western Vir
ginians mnst see all our elements of hap
piness, all our piospects blasted. These
arc not the times for conciliation, for com
promise ! We nre in the midst of a revo
lution tbe end of which is not known.
As we shall work, so we shall reap. If
Kentucky must havo our rain to gratify
I her views, let the General Goverument see
to Kentucky. As to ourselves, our Drees
attics require systematized action, and we
must fulfill our destinies by fighting for our
rights. We wuut a free State, with a Con
stitution that will ignore slavery. We
want a good system of public schools,
liberty of conscience, equal rights to all.
I We want the punishment of the rebel
leaders as a security for the future.
We (eel that the government, as recon
structed at Wheeling, is a failure, without
I any prospect of amendmeut. We wish that
I some step be adopted by which we may
I have the protection of the General Govern
ment until the whole State is reconquered
I from the Confederates. We then can de
cide for ourselves whether we sball be a
I free State.
If we cannot obtain something of the
kind?il the Governmental Wheeling is ob
stinnte and endeavors to enforce its enact
ments or the collection of taxes by and
I through irresponsible agents, from a popu
I lation impoverished and beggared by poor
crops, inundations unprecedented, and by
the exactions and devastations of friend
and foe, if the vote to be taken on the new
Constitution (which, by the by, will br
supported only by its originators, and their
IrieDds, tbe slave owning secessionists)
then woe be to those who are against tbe
I people's justice. Can anything be concei
I ved more solemnly frightful than tbe jus
tice of the people ?
I What remedy have we still left? A
convention of Delegates, chosen in each, or
a majority of the counties, for the purpose
of remedying tbe present condition ot af
fairs in Western Virginia.
A French writer, (tbo son of tbe cele
brated Madamo Dudevant, alitu George
Sands,) describes "honest Abe Lincoln" as
'?A very tall man, six feet high, dressed in
a complete suit of black, and holding in
bis large, hairy hands, ft pair of white
gloves which he has never put on and
which he never can pat on; a long nose;
wide mouth ; small agreeftble eyes; hollow
cheeks; his beard cat in the American
fashion?ft fashion which would make
Jupiter himself look vulgar , ft toupet of
long bair raised upon his forehead and
falling back like a weeping willow ; a kind
expression of countenance, not devoid of
shrewdness; snch is 'Honest Abraham,'
the nickname given to President Lincoln."
A clever French picture; but what if
the "American fashion" of beard-catting,
that would "make even Jupiter look vul

LETTER FROM MISSOURI.
Camp s"?ar Niw Madrid, 1
Nsw Madrid Co., Mo., Mnrch B. J ?
After taking a short run down home on
recruiting business I returned to Camp on
tbe 19th of February. The morning of the
21?t we received orders to pack up aud
hold ourselves in readiness to move at five
o'clock P. M. And at that bonr we left
Camp Andrews for Paducab, Ky. We ar
rived at Cincinnati at eight o'clock P. M.,
on tbe 22od, and marched aboard the
steamer Telegraph, No. 3. She held' oar
regiment very comfortably, and our com
pany waa one of tbe lucky ones, getting
quarters in tbe Cabin. We left Cincinnati
about noon on Sunday the 23rd, steaming
down the river at the rate of twenty miles
an hour, making tbe rnn to Louisville in
seven hours, and after a short stay at that
point we again started. After running
about three hours we eocounterod a very
severe storm, which tossed us about at its
mercy for some time, when the crew suc
ceeded in landiog her and we laid by until
daylight, when we started again and ar
rived at Paducah at twelve o'clock that
night. We nil supposed we wonld go no
farther on tbe Telegraph but we were dis
appointed. Orders were received to report
at Cairo, so we steamed away for Cairo,
arriving there at daybreak nud stopped all
day. By bard work and sharp dodging I
managed to get ashoie, to take a look at
the fortifications, goo boats and other
sights. They have been described so ofteo
that anything I could say would be super
I boarded two boats of wounded men
from Fort Donelson, who were going to
the hospitals at Cincinnati. Among them
I met an old acquaintance, Mr. Robert Ilall,
of Bridgeport. He was wounded by a
fragment of a shell in the shoulder. I then
visited the Bteamer Florence, loaded with
secesh prisoners, and talked with them.
They were from Alabama and Mississippi.
They all said they were opposed to the war
at first, bat after It was commenced they
wouHhfiglit us long as any other Southern
men. None however could tell what they
were fighting for. And all acknowledged
President Lincoln to be a far more con
servative man than they supposed.
At Cairo we received orders to go to
Commerce, and report to Gen. Pope. We
left Cairo at sunset Tuesday evening and
steamed up the Mississippi. Arrived at
Commerce at nine o'clock that night;
stayed about tbe boat until moruiug, when
we disembarked and started forcamp, three
miles from the town (if these few strag
linjj huts deserve tbe name). We cleared
out a camp in tbe woods and prepared to
take a short rest after our long ride.
Thursday evening we was ordered to
cook rations for three days and be ready
for the march at eigbt'o'clock in tbe mor
ning. All was bustle and excitement and
the rumor that we was bound to New
Madrid to cut off tbe retreat of the rebels
from Columbus, caused the boys to shout
for joy. At eight o'tlock Friday morning
we were out iu linn rul/ fj.- the mnrch.
After getting our train of wagons in order
we got started and marched fifteen miles,
and eamped on tbe banks of St. Johns lake
where Jeff. Thompson had three* pieces of
artilery planted tosweep tbe bridge and cor
duroy roads, but a detachment of oavalry
from Bird's Point, wus coming up in his
rear, and he getting wind of Ihesume beat
ft hasty retreat; our cavalry was so close at
bis heels that to save his bacon he aban
doned bis artillery. We took five pris
oners, killed one and wounded one. This
is the last we saw or heard of the valiant
Jeff. The next day we marched twelve
miles and camped at tbe village af Sykes
ville, on tbe Cairo & Fulton railroad.
The country is very-low and level, and
in many places swampy. The land ap
peared to be good, however, and produces
well where it is farmed; but thus far farms
are few and far between. This night we
were visited by violent showers of rain, ac
companied by thunder and lightning. The
rain flooded our tents, and wet us to tbe
buff. The next day wo marched twelve
miles, and camped iu a better country than
any I have yet seen. The roads were in a
wretched condition from tbe night's rain,
and the men were ordered to leave their
knapsacks, take one blanket, one pair ol
socks, and push forward. In tbe night i<
turned very cold, and froze tbe roads hard
enough to bear our artillery and cavalry.
We were only eleven miles Ironi New Mad
rid. We were up bright and early, cooked
one day's rations and started, traversing a
beautiful country having but one draw
back?the curse of slavery, which makes
farms large and population sparse.
We arrived in vicinity of the enemy,
formed In line of battle and advanced on
the town. When within nbout a mile and
a half of the town, the rebels opened the
ball by sending us a thirty-two pound
shell from a rifled gun. We adcanced a
half mile further and halted. Our artillery
got into position and shelled the town and
vicinity to unmask any batteries, but found
none ; but we found something that both
ered us a great deal more. We found
three gunboats armed with heavy guns,
which dropped the shot and shell around
us pretty thick. The men of our regiment
kept as cool as if they had been on drill.
All praised our good conduct. We held
our position until near night, when we
fell back andjeamped, having no artillery
heavy enough to cope with their boats.?
Yesterday we laid by all day. In the eve
ning Col. Smith notified Cupt. Poorman
that his company was detailed for special
duty. At ten o'clock we formed Co's A,
B, 0, and D, of tbe 43d Ohio, aud one com
pany of the 1st Regulars, CapL Spoor's
battery and two companies of cavalry.
We marched to within a short distance of
tbe town. The Regulars and Co. A were
thrown forward as skirmishers. We then
formed In line of battle and advanced, the
battery and cavalry in the rear. When
within a short distance of tbe town their
pickets fired on our skirmishers, which
was promptly returned, and they were
driven in. We halted on the outskirts,
while our battery got into position and
played on tbe town for a few minutes,
when the gnnboats again opened on ns.?
The stillness of the night waa broken, and
the darkness lit, by the burning fuses and
the flash of bursting sheila. Oar guns
raked the town fore and aft, but tbe boats
were slowly getting into position to rake
us with their heavy guns. We quietly
drew off, having failed in anr object, which
waa to draw out their infantry, and whip
their land force. Our loss waa one man
Troops are dally arriving. How many
are here, it is not necessary to state, bat
we have plenty. T.

No more English or French rubbish,
made to sell, but not to keep time.
Why should an Amorican buy a foreign Watch,
when he can get a better and cheaper one at home?
Why should an American needlessly enrich foreign
Watch manufacturers at the expense of our own
Why should an American nend gold to England
and France, our covert but bitter enemies, when
gold is so much needed at home?
Whv should an American buy an Imported Watch,
which, in nine cases out of ten, will cost more to
keep in order for one year, than its original price,
and which was never intended to keep time nndcr
any circumstances? ?
Why should Americans not patronize more gener
ally American manufactures, and thns emancipate
themselves from the thraldom of Kngllsli capital,
Fronch fashions, and Continental gew-gaws?
The American Watch Compaey's Watches are par
ticularly adapted for soldiers* use, being most sub
stantial ly made, and not liable to get out of order,
either in marching, riding, or lighting.
Sold by all respectable Jewelers in the loyal States
