t WKDJTCSBAT, FEBSTJABY M, 1808. Inconsistent. Congressional and "Sit legislative proceedings, it is of late matter of frequent occurrence, to read - of petition being presented from certain I localities, asking our legislators to "let the nigger question alone, and attend to matters of more general concern." Per haps in the same day's proceedings will be the announcement that the very same class of persons are beseiging the Legis lature with prayers to pass laws prohibit ing negroes from settleing in the State, under severe penalties. Now it is plain that those .persons who are apparent ly anxious to have the negro question ig nored, are hypocritical in their " profes sions, else why do" they ask the Legisla ture to meddle with the question in any shape T Evidently they are opposed to agitating-the "nigger question," when any measure is discussed proposing the amelioration of. that unfortunate class; but if someheartless individual devises a scheme for the oppression and deeper abasement of the colored population, then agitation of the question is all right 1 I Camp Correspondence. tensive and interesting.

A portion of the gunboats and mortar boats had proceeded to within shelling distance of Columbus, and taken up position on the Missouri side of the riv er when a shot was fired from the enemy's works, after which a flag of truce put out and the rebel ofljeers went aboard the flagship. ' The conference lasted an hour and a half; but the results attained are not yet known. It is sufficient that at the expi ration of the time the flag ship signalled the fleet to return.

Ee porta of destitution and want in the families of soldiers from this county, who are serving their country in the field. reach us almost daily. Can it be that there are in our midst, wives and children of the defenders of the rights of those of us who stay ai home m peace, who are suffering for want, while we have enough and to spare? "What the effect when the report of such facts reach them, must be upon the minds of the soldiers who are fax from their homes, enduring manfully whatever may befall them, may be seen from the following extract from a letter from Capt. Stratton, of the 19th Eeg.. whose . company is almost entirely made ;cp of Trumbull County men. Capt. Stratton says: " My.men have reported to me that their wives, mothers, etc., .have not drawn any money for some time. It causes them much uneasiness, they being all poor men. ' 'J'hsf say before they enlisted, their friends and. the public said, "Go, we will see that your families are well provided for ; no trouble about that." But as soon as away, they are forgotten, and their fam ilies are in waat. Please acquaint me if the County is paying them anything, and if so, bow much. Col. Ratliff. the Cleveland Herald, writing from Fort Leavenworth under date of the 17th, inst,- pays the following neat compliment to CoL Ratlin, and to Warren. He says Last Saturday Col. Doubleday, of our regiment, was appointed acting Brigadier General. It is probable, too, that ool. Doubleday will not resume command of the 2d Cavalry; for if he is as successiui as I t hink he will be in the capacity cf Brigadier he will soon be commissioned as such. This leaves Lieut.-Col. R- W. Ratliff in command of our regiment one of the best men. by the way, that prolific aud patriotic Warren has sent into the service, The 24th Ohio Surprised-Agreeably. From private letters from Major A. S. (uow in command of the 24th Ohio Regiment) to Lieut. Chas. R. Harmon, we make the following extracts. The sirsi tetter is dated "Camp near Green River, Ky., Feb. 11." Wo broke camp at "Wickliffe" on the first dawn of the 7th, and in 60 minutes from the "enuale" the 10th Brigade was forme d rn the assigned order, 36ih, 34th Ind..21th and 51st Ohio, and took up ' their march for Green River. It wes a happy hour to ' the old" 24th; her men urchl with a joyous heart and without - ihe intervention of Doctors or Ambulances. -She is now emphatically her self again, fcikmg the lead and- bearing off the palm for soldierly bearing. About five miles on the road Gen. Nelson and Staff, had with out notice to any of us, posted themselves for review as we passed. The 24th com-1 plying with the General Order, was march ; fne in thahnwt styje in column by sec iipns at half distance and at "right should er jhift."- J saw him about 50 yards ahead of the cohrmh, and ordered my band to play "Had Columbia," as I approached and saluted; ajt'thchead of my column reached him b bluffly called Out "what Regiment is that V I answered, "24th OhK.": "I thought ."-'said he, lifting his hat i salute us. "" " ttnee you left, the Regiment has -been most perfectly "surprised." ' ' One day at Camp Wickhffe, juirt at the 'conclusion of .dress parade; there came without the least notice, galloping upon us, s squad of iDounted mn, led by our somewhat noted character, Jaoab Ammen, andpounced 't onr upon our "centre," and presented us with the most beautiful flag in the ser- ie embroidered with the highest art, it j ooat $10G, dark blue, gold embroidered sle, and name of tho R-giment, heavy gold frinee. Upon presentinn it. the On said: "We are about to advance upon the "enemy, and I have selected you as the "truest and most reliable defender of the "honor and glory of our arms. As a token "of that confidence I present you with "this flag, and having seen your bravery "tested upon the fields of death in the "campaign of Western Virginia, I know you will permit it to receive no dishon or, and that in the hour of greatest per it, wherever it may be necessary to storm the rebel lines, I ehall see this flag enter ing the breach, pursuant to order, at whatever hazard, may appear to confront "it." I responded . "Sir, by the fortunes of war I am in command of the 24th Ohio, and must re spond. Hitherto it has been the pride of this Regiment, instilled by your precept and enforced by your example, through out the perilous exposure of the Virginia campaign, to bear high on the forehead of its spirit, the motto, 'Overpowered we may be, but surprised never," and whilst exposed to the tactics and strategy of or dinary commanders, under your guidance we have been able to keep ourselves true to the motto we had adopted. But to-day in the hands of an inexperienced com mander, and exposed to your tactics and strategy, the wary old 24th is at last sur prised. Yet sir, had my' pickets giv- timely alarm, and mv police . a dor .n : " - Td been nature of this surnri--.

Its civer.on the cheerless summit of. the Virginia mountains, set us the example, and on the 12th of September demonstrated the fact, that eternal vigilance was not onlv the price of liberty, but of life and honor. Beneath the shadow of this flag, in- the campaign now before us, ni l you swear to emulate that example? (The whole line now thundered, 'Yes,' the music beat and the arms rattled and the officers sa luted. At a motion of my hand all was again silent, and I proceeded.) This flag now bears but the national ensign and the name of the Regiment; its silken woof is waiting for you to interweave an 'Inscrip tion of honor there.' The 32d Indiana, a few days since, won the inscription of 'Rowlett's Station,' and the 9th Ohio, at Zollicoffer's defeat, won the inscription of T";ll Snrinn' tU,, 111 coming struggle, win for yours an inscrip- tion of honor too, or failing, die beneath it T No pen can describe the enthusiastic response to this it was wild with deter mination, and thundered to the very skies. At length it was silent, and I turned to Gen. Ammen, he was white as marble, and said. Then sir. I will now receive it and say that our conduct in the future shall be the grand testimonial of our gratitude for the unexpected and magnificent gift." The second letter is dated, "Steamer Autocrat, Ohio River, Feb. 18, 1S62." We are now about 0 miles below Cjfh! nelton, Indiana, on our Southern "ad vance." We left our Camp near Green River, the I3th and reached West Point. Ky., yesterday and embarked. 15 large size Steamboats constitute Gen.

I am in command of the "Autocrat." The lth is in splendid condition, not one man fell out on the march to the River, whilst from 50 to 300 fell put of other reg iments; she is enured to hardships and proof against peril. The sight of an ene my, or the sound to advance, empties the xxospiiai ana oamsaes disease. At Oanneilton, this morning, we got of ficial information of the fall of Ft. Don- j elson no tongue can describe the wild hurrahs of the 12 thousand troops, then rounded to, at that Port. The fleet moves together m "column," a band on each boat, and is the grandest spectacle ever witnessed on inland waters. Please give my highest regards to the "old Patriots" at home, and assure them their honor shall never be tarnished by the quota they furnished to the 24th 0. if it is her fortune to get one more clip at the rebels, a red path of rebel blood will mark the line of her advance. Then on ward in the discharge of our high duty to the cause cf civil liberty. Some of us will never return to receive their warm congratulations, but whilst receiving those who do, we know they will remember, wiih undying recollection, those who shall have fallen beneath the ensign of our bo loved country. My last hope in the hour of dissolution, should it be mine to die. would be that a patriotic people at home, would teach my children to appreciate the cause in which I fell. It is all I would ask. To have lost a friend in this strug gle for the preservation of constitutional liberty, is lagacy enough, and to have fall en as a soldier in the Western Army, a 1 sacrifice ensuring immortal honor.

Jan. 15th. and arrived at Benton Barracks, three miles from St. Louis, the 19th inst., without incident of interest. Of these Barrel their original construction and manage ment, I can scarcely spaak with sufficient. contempt. They are. the living tombs of the most sallow, Laggard, and sickly lot of men, it nas ever been mav fate to look upon. Especially is this the case with any of the troops who have been compell ed to stay there any length of time. their site was originally ill chosen, the ground being low, wet, and incapable of oemg arainea. ine windings, them selves, are low, dark, and small, for the amount of troops they were intended to hold, and without sufficient ventilation, These Barracks are the offspring of Fre mont's brief reign. I also saw on the out skirts of the city, the breastworks thrown np lor the protection of the city, upon wnicn a great deal ot money was spent.- iney are now tumbling down and once more becoming a part of old mother earth. No one can spend a day in wandering about St. Louis, examining the military achievements of Gen. Fremont, without Lemg forced to the conclusion that he is an expensive dreamer, unfitted for an in- dependant command. Jan. 1.1st, 9 A. M. The First battal- lion, Colonel's Suff, and Band, left Bent on Barracks for a ride across the country to St. Charles, a distance of nineteen miles, arrived there about 3 P. M.f took quarters in. the vacant freight and passen ger cars, where we stayed and waited un til P. M , of the next day. . Here let me remark to the happy dwellers in the val ley of the Mahoning, that they should no more make light of the C. & M. R. R.. and call it a "one-horse" "masheen, &c On the faith and honor of a soldier, i assure you mat it is a whole team, a four-horse concern in comparison to this .North Mo. R. R. Just before starting, we were informed that Poindexter, a noto rious rebel, was stationed within a few miles of the line of the road, and we migh t possibly have trouble. Amunition wss freely distributed, and we were finally off for Our next stopping place, Hudson. Our train was composed of something ov er forty oars, and was drawn by two en- gines. About 11 P.M., the train-broke in two, in the middle the first half go ing on about an hour bofore-they found i out their loss. And aCain about 2 in the I morning, the List car of the train, thd ope j in which the Colonel, bis staff, the Band, and the sutler were riding, broke 'loose from the train and was left behind. Just ! as the car stopped, up rode Borne six or eigni mounted soldiers, looked into the car windows, whirled, and were off. This was immediately related to the sleeping inmates of the-cars, and the proximity of Poindexter suggested. A scene "was the resuu. hat what shall we do r" savs ' Doctor Smith, just waking up out of a nap. ."FigU," says the Colonel. The Doctor reaches up for his little medical poignard and marches out to obey orders. King, our Sutler.- the Colonel savs. iust cooiy slid oil his seat on to the floor, not liking the idea, as he said, of beine shot at through the car window. The Colonel j brought order out of chaos by his coolness and prompt orders He gave the colors of the Regiment to Chaplain Hawkins, with instructions to stand by them. And I think it would have taken ! about four ordinary secesh to have taken 1 those colors from our athletic Chaplain, I who in a case of that kind would deal in temporal arguments pretty effectively. He then armed and stationed the bal- Xrelheyd SJtZS morning, before the conductor l"! ; his loss and returned to - about 7 p- M, of the the " next morning at 10 o'clock, . -xst train started on the Hannibal and St. Joseph R.

We all arrived at Weston be- fore 6 o'clock A. M, on the 25th; un- j horses and baggage, built our camp on the banks of the Missouri, and made a very comfortable breakfast on ba- i con, hard bread and cofiee. Col. Double-! day reported his command immediately ! to Uen. tlunter, at iort .Leavenworth. He returned an- order immediately for CoL D. to proceed with his command to Platte City, about 7 miles from Weston, and about ten from the Fort ; place his command in the houses left vacant by the absent " sece6h," and subsist his troops as much as possible on the substance of those who were enemies of the (iovern- ment. We arrived at Platte City about 3 o'clock P. M., of the 25th, and the bat talion distributed according to orders in vacant buildings. Then commenced our first actual service in the way of patrols, parties of reconnoisance, and foraging. 1 be soil ot the country appears to be rich and luxuriant. Its chief products are hemp, corn, niggers and widows. Of the lattea there is no end. Ip one small neighborhood there were. I was credibly informed, only thirty. And then it did a married man's heart good, to see them weep over the memory of the virtues of the dear departed. It was always a settler, though, to this weeping feminine gender. when some inquisitive individual .would enquire what particular disease had tak en off the defuncts. We bave since found that some of these lacrymally inclined widows were mourn ing husbands who had departed for the Southern army instead of "Kingdom come." On the 27th, Co. "C" Capt. Bur nett, moved out and took possession of a large oricK mansion aoout a mile irom the city, owned by Gen. Doriss, a former member of the Missouri Senate, a Slave dealer, a millionaire, and now a traitor. Upon the approach of the Union army he collected together his human cattle, and fled to Arkansas, where he has since been stayingor Ait health. Before the Union forces came into this county it was very hard work to find a Union man, now its a mighty sight harder to una a seoesn. A more sycophantic, crawling, absequious set of scoundrels you never saw. The balance of the regiment, as it arrived by squadrons, was quartered in and around the aforesaid city, in good comfortable houses. Co. D (Capt. Cald well,) is now quartered about five miles east of here on the Parkwelle road, and has been very active in gathering up the loose Forage, 4c, of absent rebels in that vicinity. Two members of Capt. C's com pany, Khodes and Ceo. Prindle,) died this week. We are happy to be able to state that our asst. surgeon, (Dr. Smith of Warren) is looked upon by every offi cer and soldier in the regiment as a broth er and a modfcl of kindness and attention. God speed the day that he may have the entire control of our hospital and sick. Xhe health of the regiment at present is not the best, some Measles, and many of the men suffering from severe colds and disorders incident thereto. Our sojourn in this place has so far been a very pleasant one, and our regiment will leave here with the good wishes end re grets of many if not all of the citizens, and I may softly say many of the fair sex, also. The monotopy of our every day routine was very pleasantly broken by Col. Doub leday's presenting in behalf of the non commissioned officers and soldiers, (of this regiment,) to Lt.-Coh Ratliff a beautiful and oostly sabre.- No man in the regi ment is so universally liked and esteem ed as Col. Ratliff. And the day is not far distant from present indication, when he will be our CoL Col.

This county uas suffered severely this winter from "Jayhawkers," a word which in the Mis souri dictionary means, small bands of ruffians who rob and steal from all and any in their reach, driving off horses, cat tle, and forcing men at the ropes end to ransom their lives with their last cent. They pounce down upon a peaceful farm bouse at midnight, drag the inmates from their beds, and tying a rope around the neck of the proprietor, lead him to the nearest tree ; he must then give up his bottom dollar, or hang. One party of them is led by one "Cleveland," from Ohio, and for whose benefit Capt. Burnett froze himself and men from dark until daylight a few nights ago, hoping to en trap tho gent and ' his brigands in one of his forays, of which we had information, but Cleveland had had timely warning and kept away. The people here were about to petition to have our command stationed here un til Spring, but to-day we received orders to march to Ft. Scott, Arkansas.

Concerning our guns I need only say that the only two trials to which we were able to subject them while in Camp Den- nison, we done better shooting than was done by the whoe winter's practice of CoL Barnett's Artillery Regiment. The Col. showed his appreciation of their superiori ty byat once making a requisition for the same Kind ot guns to supply ins only un furnished Battery. It might not be out of place here to state that the best firing was done by George Harsh, of AVarren, the gunner of the 12 pounder, on the right flank. Though every shot did not strike the target nearly a mile distant yet all would have done execution even upon a single of the enemy at that distance. Our last six weeks in Camp Dennison were passed under the reign of King Mud, an ever present potentate, who greeted our wearied eyes frommorning till night. Colds and sorethroats soon became univer sal The measles broke ont in the Camp and raged a perfect epidemic. Men were token sick by scores, and in our own bar racks from three to five-were taken to the hospital daily. At one time fully one- fifth of the battery were kept in bed, and one-half were wholly unfit for duty. One of our number, S. T.

The reas on is, that until recently, there has been very umo ui importance transpired in con nection with the movements of the 20th, lurtner man its usual daily routine of guarding batteries that have command of the approaches to Cincinnati, Covington and Newport. So long have we been en gaged in guarding batteries, that we found we were not to have a hand, directly, in lifting from the dust the emblem of our nationality, and we had become almost "Spoiled for a fight." On the 11th inst., we received marching orders to go to Pa duca, Ky., which was to us "tidings of great jry, making the tCj; plmost crazy with delight. At 8 o'clock, eight compa nies were on board the steamers Dr. Kane and Emma Duncan, (one company being down the river at Warsaw, and one left in Cincinnati, to guard the batteries for a few days until relieved,) and start ed down the river. We stopped at War sawand took on board the company that was there, and at 6 o'clock P. M., on the 13th, we reached Paducah. Our trip thus far was a very pleasant one. On arriving tnere, our loriner good leeiings were very much elated to find an order to ioin Gen. Grant's division in an attack on Fort Don- elson, about 120 miles Tronr Paducah, up the Cumberland river. That night, at 12 o'clock, we started, and at 5 o'clock. P. M., Friday, we reached the vicinity of fori uoneison. ine engagement had already taken place, the day before we arrived, (Thursday) at 4 o'clock. P. M.. and when we came up, four of our gun boats were playing sharply upon the reb el oanenes, ana ine shot ot the rebel guns were lighting in the water closely where we landed. Saturday morning we started to the scene of action, our position being on the right of the right brigade, commanded by Colonel McArthur. We reached our position at 10 o'clock, A. M., having performed a circuitous march of 10 miles. Soon after we arrived, the wound ed of troops engaged early in the morning commenced coming in. They were hor rible to look at, by one unaccustomed to witness the horrors of a battle-field. At 11 o'clock, A. M., there was a general en gagement of gun-boats, batteries, and sev eral regiments of infantry, making one continued roar of artillery and musketry, which lasted for -one hour.. We were drawn up in line of battle, expecting eve ry moment our turn would come next. The shots whized through the air about us, but fortunately none of us were hurt. The boys of the 20th, were as cool as if on dress parade. AVe remained on our arms all night anxiously waiting the signal to begin. To our surprise, the next morn ing the intelligence came that the Fort had surrendered. The forests for miles around rang with deafening applause from the thousands of soldiers who were gathered for a hand in the conflict. It was a hard fought battld, but a most bril liant achievement, a victory that has no precedent in American history, The reb el forces numbnred from 11,000 to 20,000, under Generals Pillow, Floyd, Johnson, and Buckner. Only about half of our forces were in the engagements. We had on Sunday morning in the field, 40,000 troops, with a reinforcement of 17,000 on tho way up the river. Johnson and Buckner surrendered, with 12,000 troops prisoners of war. Pillow and Floyd, with the balance of the rebel forces escaped the night before. We have all the arms, equipments and stores, of those that sur rendered. The killed on each side is be tween 300 and 400, and the wounded on each side 500, as near as I can judge. The wounded are not many of them fatal. Nearly all the killed of the rebels were shot either in the eye, or near the centre of the forehead. The 9th and 41st Illinois, and the 31st Indiana, suffered the most of any of the regiments engaged. We have lost in the killed several prominent company field officers. We are now on the way to St. Louis with the prisoners, our regiment being one to guard them to their desti nation. Co. A and H ore guarding prisoners. They are poor miserable looking objects, without uniform, the most of them, and poorly clad, and their blankets are most ly pieces of carpeting. The prisoners are mostly Tennessee and Missisippi troops, and a, majority of them appear glad to get out. of the rebel army, and many of them have told me they were anxious to take the oath of allegiance. Very many of them were drafted soldiers, and were forc ed into rebellion contrary to their wishes. Shortly before we left Cincinnati, Capt. Powers resigned and returned home. Lt. Wm. Rogen of Co. A, takes the command of the company by Seniority of rank. He is trom Knox County, Uhio. On Sunday morning last, private Dan'l R ili'at, by n accidental dischargo or his gun, nearly snoi vu i" forefinger of his left banJ. The !Uer was amputated at tne knUCKie joiut. Thomas Gillmore and Wm. Ohl, of Trum bull Co., have been unwell for some time, Cut are with us, and are slowly improving. We3lev Craig and Alex. Longmore, of Wamn, and James J. Stanlv, were left at the general Hospital in Cincinnati. They are well rared for and were recover ing when we left. The company has been remarkably healthy since we left Cincin nati. We are all of us badly in want of some pay, and earnestly hope Uncle Sam has not forgotton us. Yours, respectfully, E. C DOWNS. List Names of Capt. James Powers' Company, 20th Reg't Infantry O. V.

President Lincoln's son William, aged 11 years, died on the 29th inst. Col. Doubleday is acting in the capacity of a Brigadier General, under the appoint ment of Gen. Halleck. The Louisville Journal says Gen. Buck ner, captured at Ft. Donaldson, is to be tried for treason. Gen. Butler has gone to. ship 'Island, near Orleans, to take command of the forces there. Gen. Curtis has .taken Bentonville, Ar kansas, with a considerable quantity of baggage, wagons, etc. The New York Post says reinforce ments have been sent to Gen. Burnside, which will increase his force to 40,000. The fine Lake Superior side wheel steamer North Star was burned on last Tiiursi:.7 niht in Cleveland, at her berth in the Old River Bed. Yancey, the rebel commissioner, is seek ing to return South. He was a passenger in the steamer Seine, which sailed from Southampton on the 3rd for St. Thomas. Government has released a large num ber of political prisoners from Forts La fayette and Warren, on their parol that they wont give aid or comfort to the en emy. It is proposed to introduce a bill into Congress giving soldiers the privilege of settling and making homes in the fertile districts along the Mississippi and other rivers South. Gordon, the slaver Captain, was execut ed at New York, on Friday last. He made no speech. He attempted to commit su icide by smoking cigars saturated with strichnine. Francis, the old colored man who has been Messenger at the War Department for forty-two years, died suddenly, on Sunday, from excess of joy at the news of the late victories. Reports from usually reliable sources say between three and four hundred of the Berkley county militia have deserted in a body, and are en route to cross the Potomac and jofn our ranks. The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad have received orders from the War Department to put their road in working order at the expense of the company, under condition that the Government protect operatives. The Tennessee rolling mills, four miles from Ft. Donalson, were burned on tho night of the 16th inst., by our gunboats. The works had been used by the rebels in the manulacture ot shot, shell and other material of war. It was an extensive con cern. The wife of Senator Monroe died in Oberlin on Wednesday evening. Her death must have been very sudden, as Mr. Monroe had no previous intimation of her illness. The dispatch announcing her death reached Senator Monroe in Colum bus on Thursday morning. One of the released prisoners who had been confined at Richmond seven months, gives unmistakable evidence of a strong Union organization at Richmond. The Union men chum to be 3,000 strong, and say they are eagerly waiting and longing tor an opportunity to tun" out the stars and stripes. Everything at Fort Donclson is progress ing satisfactorily. Our army are encamp ed in the captured works, having comfort able quarters in log huts and tents of the late garrison. The soldiers are very en thusiastic and anxious to march at once against Nashville. The actual number of prisoners taken is 13,300, among them Gen. West, not previously mentioned. Before surrendering, at Ft. Donaldson, the rebels threw most of their late mails into the river. Col. Markland, postal di rector, however succeeded in seizing a number of mail bags and some outside let ters, supposed to contain important infor mation. Floyd's Brigade, foaring they might be captured, threw all their arms, which were Minie rifles of the best kind, into the river. The gunboat crews are now engaged fishing them out. A dispatch dated Sedalia, Mo., Feb. 19, says : iing, lien, tdward Tice, son ol Sterling Priee, Col. Phillips, Major Croos, and Captain Crosby, were captured near Warsaw, on Sunday night, and brought to this place. These prisoners were cap tured by Capt. Stubbs, of the 8th Iowa. They had some 500 recruits for Price in charge, who had jusf crossed the Osage River, but as Capt. Stubbs had but a small force, he did not follow them. The Federal gunboat Tuscarora started from Cowcs, England, on the morning of the Cth inst., in pursuit of the rebel pri vateer vessel the Nashville. The Nash ville had 40 hours start of her. The En gineer of the Nashville told the pilot who took her out that it was agreed by all on board that she should never be captured that he had all the valves of the engine so arranged that she could be blown up in a moment, and that it the capture ot the Nashville was ever heard of a violent ex plosion would accompany it. The New York World's Washington coiTesiondence says The recent news from Europe touching the determination of the Allied powers to put a Hapsburgh as ruler over Mexico' and thus create a monarchy on our borders, is exciting pro found emotion here. The actual fact that some such scheme was on the tapis has been in possession of the State Department forsometime past and it will be foundthat dispatches have already been sent to" our Ministers at iionaon, iraris ana jiaunu, protesting energetically against any such project. A special to the St. Louis Democrat, da ted Springfield, ilo., reo. is, says: uen. Curtis has driven the rebel army beyond the Arkansas line ; at 10 o'clock Sunday nipht we were sixtv-nine miles south of SDrinefield. The Federal flag now floats in Arkansas. Several skirmishes had taken place in the defiles of the moun- tains. We had six wounaea, ana tne en emy had 16 killed and a large number wounded. We have bagged a large num ber of prisoners. On Tuesday two rebel regiments, from Clarksville, Tenn., came to Fort Donel son and eave themselves up, saying they had been deceived and were tired of fighting against the old flag. The Pro vost Marshal at Clarksville- sent word to Gen. Grant to come up and occupy the town at once. Officers of the gunboats now lying there report Union feeling very strong, and people state mat iney naa been made to believe that the Union ar my was entirely compoeeu m uermmis and Ne-roes. for abolition purposes ; but thev see it is not. They are anxious to return to their allegiance. Prominent citizens there say similar leenngs win pervade the whole State in a week. Fredfrick, Md., Feb. 19. On Saturday night, at a complimentary dinner tendered to Hon. Charles J. Faulk ner, at Martinsburg, Va., that gentleman, in a speech, said in effect, that the policy of secession, as it had been carried out, was a failure. It had been accompanied with an unnecessary waste of life, the best blood of the South, and immense sacrifice of property. If this course was continued in it would pile ruin on ruin. The public sentiment of Western Virgin ia was opposed to it. He also intimated that he had no affiliation with those who wished the present war to continue. His remarks were acquiesced in by the large audience present, and he naa no qouot but they reflected the true sentiments of nine-tenths of the people of the upper counties of the Potomac. Mecca Correspondence. MECCA, February 24th, 1862. Messrs Editors: Allow me to notice through your paper the events of tho week. Donations are becoming the pre vailing topic, two have been given respect ively to the Rev. Mr Higbee, pastor of the' Free Will Baptist Church, and the Rev. Mr. Arnold, pastor of the Congregational Church. At the first . a bounteous table was spread of "good things," a large company waa present, cd judging from is , actions all were delighted. The report of the receiver showed a sum of forty-five dollars donated. The second held at Attic Hall was a brilliant success; joyous faces were met on every hand. The well spread table showed the taste of the Mecca ladies. Secession "played out," was finely illus trated by two pyramids. The one a beau tiful genuine article finely decorated and bearing the glorious flag of the free and brave. The other an equally fine looking pyramid and equally well decooated save the beautiful bright colors of our "fri colors. But come to search the interior the latter only produced a "wad" of Cot ton, and our flag was made to float above it. The genuine was presented to the Rev. Mr. Arnold. Speeches were made by various of the literati, and music was furnished by the" Large Family. On Thursday Eve., Attic Hall was filled with the lovers of music to hear the Large Sisters, as they should delight the audience with sweet and melodious tones. However much the audience may have expected, they were not disappointed. "The Sword of Bunker Hill," "Old Shady," . and "I Never Saw a Woman," sung by request of the ladies, were the favorites. The second named had a moral, peculiarly adapted to the exciting topic of America. Mr. Large was invited to renew his entertainment on Saturday Eve., with which he complied and kindly offered to donate the half of the proceeds to the "Soldiers Aid Society." Of course the liberal offer was joyfully hailed by the ladies,. whose treasury was by the recent demands more than drained. Saturday night came and with it a Church full of the admirers of music. Again they were delighted beyond their expectations. "The Union foreverfor me" was performed by Miss Low, as performed by Miss Adda Webb, with brilliant success. "Billy Grimes the Drover" was finely executed by Miss Mollie.jind on the whole the entire performance was a success. Should your readers have an opportu nity they will find the morals contained in Mr. Largo's selections and the fine taste with which they are performed, are abun- dent reward for their money and time in going to hear them, while the delightful sensations produced in the mind the musicians will be an extra inducement for attending. . Truly yours, CASE. CONGRESSIONAL. Washinuto-V, Feb. 20. Hocse. The House took up the report from tLe Com mittee of the Whole on the Senate's amendments to the Treasury Note bill. All the amendments to the Treasury Note bill were acted on. The amend ment making the interest on the notes payable in coin was agreed to. The amendment pledging the lands. duties and proceeds ot rebel property to the redemption of the interest and prin cipal of the debt was rejected. The bill goes back to the Senate again. The Post Office appropriation bill was up in Committee of the Whole. Among the more important amend ments to the Treasury Note bill agreed to are the following : The notes to be received in payment of all claims and demands of every kind ex cept for the interest on the bonds and the notes, which shall be paid in coin the vote on this was, yeas fi.S, nays 55 ; author izing theJSecretary to dispose of the bonds at any time at their market value for coin, or for any of the Treasury notes heretofore or hereafter- to be issued, or for notes under thi3 act. The House agreed to the Senate amend ment authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to receive the notes on deposit for not less than 30 days, in Bums not less than one hundred dollars, certificates to he issued therefor, 4c This, however, was amended by the House, so as to in clude deposit of coin, and changing the interest to that which the Secretary may, from time to time, prescribe, not exceed ing six per cent. The Bill again goes bock to the Senate, owing to the disagree ment of the House to some of the amend ments. The Military Committee reported a bill establishing a ship canal from the Missis sippi river to .Lake Michigan, for the con veyance of military stores and troops. The House went into Committee of the Whole taking up the Senate amendments to the Army bill, which were concurred in. Senate. The Senate passed the army appropriation bill for 1502, and then went executive session. Hocse. The Homestead Bill as report ed from the Committee on Public Lands is coming up, the question pending being to re-commit the same with instructions to report instead the Bounty Land War rant Bill. Mr. Grow called Mr. Washburn to the chair, and, taking the floor, spoke against the motion. Five times within the lasi ten years the House had passed a bill similar to ibis, and by two-third votes, when parties were nearly balanced on nearly every other question. A Bid, too, of like character had passed the Sen ate. He answered the objection that the public lands should be retained as a source of revenue. Mr. Grow argued in fivor of giving homesteads to actual set tlers. Speculators should no longer be permitted to intervene between the Gov ernment and actual tillers of the soil. Those who had flocked to -the standard of the country are deserving of more sub stantial reward than tears to the dead and thanks to the living. He earnestly ap pealed to the. House to pass the Bill ancM consecrate J;he public land for homes to actual settlers who prospered in life, that they may be enabled to develop a higher, better and nobler civilization. From the N.

I with anything less than the utter and final extinction of this rebelion. The re bellion, on the other hand, ii already be ginning to stagger. The vitality and the passion of it are dying out. Pierced through as it now is by many arrows, we shall soon see the whites of its eyes, and its ghost will pass down among the other evil spirits in limbo. The correspondent who sends us the above adds : "In almost every skirmish we have been successful, as might be readily infer red when we consider that aim out all of the above battles were fought successfully by our troops with the rebels acting on the defensive, behind works of various kinds, while in skirmishes we met them in 'fair fight.' "We are too prone to look for nothing but victories, and consequently, unlike the rebels, we maenifv evenr de feat." MARRIAGES. Feb. 18th, by Rar.

She was r.atumlly of an amiable dLvpomfion, but we have every reason to believe that tne "iiraee of God that briiitrctb salvation. put on the finishing touch to her already gentle dispoeition. Some tea hours before she breathed her last, it was very evi dent she could not survive- long, for death had al ready commenced bis ravages on her frail system. She divided her things amon? her relations and friends, appropriating to her little brother, some S months old, her little comforter and ring, and when, it was remarked, "when he is old enough to under stand it, we will tell him it is a gift from his departed sister" she replied. "I will meet him again soon." In the above distribution of her eUoets, she mani fested a eorapoeedness unusual to one of her age. She next embraced her father, mother, brother and sister, and bade them a kind and an affectionate farewelL She wished to see some of her little school mates; they were called in, snd after embracing tnem she bade them a last farewelL During the foregoing, and subeeoueat time of Ler sicknesn, sho was frequently heard to pray to her Heavenly Fath er, and died in prospect of living with Him in that "bright world above." She gave very strong assu rances of this prospect to the very last moment, to tne astonianment ot all present, and especially ner father, who remarked, 1 she did not get that from me."
