*rrwiAL i'Ai'KU «r T»ia utiiMTi. JOHN MAH1N, BDITOK. CKTW OF niJHVATINB. FRIDAY MORNING APRIL 29, IS64 -Once More lato th® lO.OOO Mm Dulled to the *»el«l from tbl- Mtaielur lOO Uaf*. Elsewhere appears the procl»mat on of GOT. Stone, ca ling for ten thousand volon teers from this Sute for one hundred cays, to relieve the veterans from garrison duty wh le thee go to the front and give the fi ishing blow to the rebellion. This requires immed ate action. Let there be no delay ir filling up the rarks. The term of enlisr merit, one hundred days, is short, and will entt.le many to enlist whose affurs hare prt Tented them trom entering the service unde: previous oils. The opportunity should not be s .ffered to pass unimproved by the thou sands of athletic ycung men who, for various reasons, have thus for held back from the ranks. The raising of 10,000 men in this State in twenty days is no small undertaking, but it can be done if the people tike hold of it in •ara-st. Let meetings be called in every community at one-*, and such action be taken as will ensure a prompt response to the patri otic appeal of our State Executive. -m I Will Mr. Cliisett toe H«ae«lT And when we put to him this interrogato ry, we include the editor of every Democratic paper in the country. In a column and half of the Cut stitution, of Saturday last, Mr. Clagett repeats the old story that Ge\ Thompson was rent to th s country many years ago, with Eng'ish gold, upon a mission of dissolution. The learned ntleman fiom Maryland has certainly hai access to his ex char ges, and mu»t, theref re, be well ap priz or whit Mr. Thompcon said in his speeches at Philadelphia and Washington. The why does he re publish the torged Kt tir, purporting to have been writ-en from Boston, March 18th, 1834, to one John A. Mur ill, in Ternes-ee? Mr. Cl'gett, don't you know that Mr. T. has pronounced that letter a fo gery Certainly you do. Whut better are you th -n he ho forged it Not many days ago Mr. 1homp«on ws* granted t-.e use of the llall of the Unit Stairs House of Repnsen stives, and a«-cep ed an inv tat on to address tie peop'e of Washington therein, up n the issues ot the dy. Ho'rifLd at the desecration propos*. d, time India-a C- ppernead oposed to the Bouse rescind us ac ion grunting the use ot the lla'l to Mr. Thompson, and gave as a re-son the existence of the letter pnblishe by Mr. Clagett. So soon as Mr. Thompson arrived in v/a«hingt n. he addressed to Mr. Indiana Copp.'ihead (proper name immiteii al) a note aski his auihori y for such a statement, li give the name of Sberard Clemens, who ma le a s railar statement msny ^years ago in Congress. When Mr. T. al dresse 1 the Washington people, among whom Were the President, Vice Pres dint and othir di^oiiari 'S, he referred to this matter, and th- re publicly dec'ared the letter a forgery— that at the t'tne it purported to ha«e be n Written he had never written a letter to a per n in America, and that mo than all, he nav-r hd addressed a lne to a citix n of a •lave Slate, and we think he also stated th -i at the date of the letter he never hid been in Amer ca. And this is 'he letter the Copper head priss of Iowa is now engig in pub lishing. Ilai Bolens, of Washington, pub lished the document we should not have been surprised but when CUgett, a learned gtn tle.uan of extensive reading, stoops to so mean and dirty a work as to ^ire currency to this forget y, there is no apologv to be made for him. The address of Mr. T. in Wash ington far ex ell in point of patriotism the Union speeches of Clagett in 1 SGI. It was •n eloquent, manly, straightforward expres sion ot sympathy for our rauee. He uttered toot a word that a loyal man could disapprove. -So eloqutnt ar earnest was his plea in our behalf, that at the conclusion of his address One of the first and fore.-r.ost to press for ward and seize his hand was the Hon. Rev -, e»dy Johnson, who was a Wtiig when Mr. ?.Glagett was a Wh g, and at the sound of -TRhosj luile, always, until now, Mr. Clagett Was quick to respond. Reverdy Johnson, of Xarylard, deemed it a pleasure to listen to l|p'.»rge Thompson, and his cheek did not .inrn w th shame. But Clagett, the rednuht *ftle Thomas W„ an old Maryland Whig, "leys The cheek of every American nught lo burn with s^ame at the announcem*ht tha' Messrs. Lincoln, Chase and Usher attended the lecture of George Thompson." Th world moves, but some men seem not to move with l- Ca^ tt anion them.

With their u-ual promptness thi people of Muscatine are responding the new call up on Iowa for 10,000 more of her brave sons. The proclamation was yet damp from ou press, when upon every corner its contents was discussed with that ardent enthusiasm indicative of a ready response. Muscatine has never, during this rebellion, faltered in hir duty. Her people are too patriotic to permit the C'Use of American liberty and Union to suffer. Relying upon the patriot i-m of our people, W. F. Dav's and F. B. McGill had, before noon of the first day, the preliminaries all arranged and several men enlisted. By their promptnest in this move ment they have commended themselves to the loyal people of the State. Both gentle men are working with creditable earnestness, and if their effoits be but pioperly seconded, Muscatine, as in 1861, will present to the Governor the first company in the first regi ment. and The 14 iowi lost severely at the battle of Pleasant Hill, La.

An exped'tion, under Colonel Ciayton, con sisting of about a thousand inf.ntry, three regiments of cvalry and six pieces ot artu ier, (12 pound howi'z.:rs,) had reached Pine Bluff, alter an eventful ra down to the Sa line river, wnere they encountered a force ol rebels a,000 strong. Tho first encount tcuk place near Braiichvide, where the tebels we e defeated alter a three hours' light Tney retreated, and our forces fo.lowed thein up. Reaching Mount Elba, on the Valine, next day, we occupied that p^ace witnout re sistance, the retreating rebels not daring to make a stand there. Our forces were hen oivtded—one detachment crossing tbe rivet, and another leconnouering this side. Ii turned out that the enemy had not crossed the river, but were discovured norne cistanci liom Mount Elbi, with reinforcements, MUU advancing upon us. We prepared to give theiu a warm rece ption by extemporising lo liticat ons of logs, rails nd cotton bales. l'he enemy came up with terrific "vigor,' bui were sent back ty our steady fire. Tnr e times th'.y charged on us, and eacn time ibey were repulsed. We baa the advantage in position, and they had at least double iht men we had. Fin dly they gave way, atu-i six hou s of vain effo.t to dislodge us. \W then iu-htd out and charged upon iheui wuh tremendous effect, catiering tb^u in ah Ji nctioos. In this engagement and that a' i Taiichville, we killed 84 ot' them, wounde. and caj tuie i over 50. In the mean tiue our scouting party that had en detached and sent acr^st the r.vcr, consisting of about 100 men, mostly coloriu troops, were equdly as busy as we on i sioe of the river. They returned to us ut dark, after having marched fitty mi es down the otuer side of the river, wheie they cauu upon a rebel tr.iin oi fifty wagons filed wit supplies Cor th.- force thit we so tellingly re pulsed. The train was under an escort 11 JOO rebels. 1 he entire train wai capt urea and destroyed by our tneo, and the ciit.rc aOi." taken prisoners. Over a thousand horse and mules fell ,nto our hands. These achievements over, and the rebels s scattered hai it was useless lor us to ty i get any mure fight out of ttiem, our expedi non took up its line of return inar-.h, uno have reached Pine Bluff in high feather. Oui loss was Very slight. The total reoel loss is £4 killed, 400 wounded and 3J0 prisoners besides their train, horses and mules. Fur the Journal. Mob Law. MUSCATINE, April 27, 1864. I am sorry, Mr. Editor, to s_e the article your papers of ye terday and of thi morning, in reference to the very unjustifia e acts done by certain parlies on Monday last. Your paper, of Tuesday, showtd a entire approval of tbe act stated in your arti de headed touk the oath." And in your article of this morning headed "not rigiit,' you a^ain evidently endoise it. Youspe.k of ic as the act of the soldiers." I do no so understand it. I understand that a ver lewkoloiers—perhaps hall a dozen, and some ot these excited by. too free conviviality were alone tha actors, while o.hers of tluir brothers in arms tried to restrain them. 1 do not think ih*t the soldiers," in iho un qua! fied manner in which you speak of them, should be held respon ib.e, I'hesj noble men, who are vug their bl od and offerin. their live* for the country, are fighting to uphold the laws of ihe ooun ry against a fiendish rebellion whu is in ^rms against the laws. Suppose that the demands uf th se Aed-meaning bat inconsiderate young niei had been refused tind resisted, migut no loud-shedding and murder have been th con-tqu ncca 'i Tne first act of lawlessm s, •KhoiJgh apparently trivial, is like the le tiiig out of wate'-." The stream, hardly vis iblo when it ftrj.1 flows over theembankoicn may soon deepen its ch uinel, and thi tloou that follows will carry ruin and de?.olaion u its course. Toe seco.id act of that day to whicu ycu refer is morning—the outr.ig upon one who bis lo.ally supported the gov eminent and been a liberal ino. of the sol diers, shows how blindly the spuit of mo1 law strikes whenever it begins to n.ove. 1 my persons ara covertly disloyal, not doiny any overt acts o opp sit on the nutiiori .ies of the land, let us try to be patieir, and let the contempt of honorable men be thjii pu istiment. if they make iheuiselve auienabie to the puois.'iment of the civil oi military authorities, let such auti oii ies a witti th in. In due time, if we have faith ii od and in man, the triumph of the ri^ht nd 'he triumph of the law, will br ng all ot tendeis to jus ice. As one WHO loves th soldieis—as one whose every sympathy is wiih the government and wilh the br.ve de endeis of our country—as one whose son have been and are iu the service of the gov eminent, per ng their lives for the defense of th la A S against an unlawful rebellion, *sk the privilege of pu'ting into the columns ol° your paper, which has so earnestly tup ported the government, this vindic tion o •'iho S'•Idlers," and this protest against al lawles ness. V V misunderstands or m:sconstrues our language wben he says he se -s an enti approval" of the acts of those soldiers oi Monday last, to whom reference is made.— Our first aiticle was merely a statement nt trie circumstances of the call on the editor of the Courier, without comment of any sort, except the expression of a doubt that it would do any gnod. Our second article was an em phatic disapproval of a call they subsequent ly made on another citizen. hile we condi mn tbe act of the soldiers In compelling any one to take the oath as an unlawful and dangerous usurpation of power, we are unable to see how it can hurt a good cit zen (o swear allegiance to his government. With this view, we think a great deal more ado has been made about this matter than is necessary. We do not anticipate mob law in this city, unless it is inaugurated by the editor of the Courier, who has publicly threatened to lay the city in ashes, and whose followers have petted the threat on the 'streets. They are too cowardly, however to put such threats into execution—hence no danger nped be ap prehended, Article* ol lacor oration «f tke litwu Slate Orplaaa Aaylaaa. WDKUEAS, We, Caleb iia'dwin, Geo.
