AnVIBTISIMENTS TSBI LOW [For the Cincinnati Daily Press.] The Sutler Question. of 8 i to Editors Pukss: Some weeki lioce tlie tele graph informed the readers of the newspapers that Seobtor Wilton would Introduce a reso lution at the opening of Congresa with a view of deluding all sutlers from the army, which information seems to be true, as the proceedings of Congress show that a notice to introduce such a bill has been given by the above gentlemen, It is beyond a question of doubt, that the intention and even the only object of so able and patriotic a member of Congress as the lion. Mr. Wilson, is, that in his introduc ing such a resolution to do the most good to the soldiers who have volunteered in our country's cause, and at the same time do that on lv which will be advantageous to the arm v. Therefore, Mr. Wilson, as well as all members wbo may be called upon to vote for or against tbe parage of this bill, should fir?t inquire whether by casting his vote for such a meas ure, he, by such an act, is doing the most good to tbe army, and thereby to the coun try. To do this, they should have inquired carefully what relation the sutler and his goods for sale have upon the health of tbe army; whether the health of said army is not kept up to a higher standard by being a part or not. We purpose making some allusions to the fuots touching the subject, to show that such an interference would be highly inju rious to the health of the soldier. First: It is well understood that different systems require different kinds of food, while one person by eating the same amount of animal food that his neighbor without in jury, would produce a billioua state at once, resulting in fever. While one person re quires to keep his health more or leal acid, Buch as apples, pickles, &c, others require luxuries, such as tobacco, cipare, 4c; there are others again requiring more saccharine matter or sweets. Thns yon will find one soldier caring for nothing but animal food, another almost sickens at meat, and has a constant desire for mure vegetables. There are many persons who are able to do business regularly if they have certain kind of food, but without such food they are 8lCK . 1 . rtny o?r(!i classes who. appetitesjust as varied as the soldier ranging in character, age and race; but does the com rousary or tbe Government make such pro vision against these demands, that are natu ral and must be obeyed? Is not each mesa (as it is termed) furnished with ra tions alike, and are they not expected to have the same Jappetiies? does the Gov ernment make a provision to meet this specific law recognized by all the dietetic laws laid down? We think they make no more provision than if such facts were not known. Again : often by the various acci dents incidental to a campaign, the regiment is without food for an indefinite period ; the Sutler's camp can always be relied upon in an emergency. Now, while Senator Wilson and the friends of this bill would, by passing such a bill, in crease the amount of money coming to each soldier on pay day, such means would de prive these soldiers of those little luxuries that the system craves and must have. It would take away the supply which is often tbe only means by which the regiment is furnished for an indefinite period withstood. By Buch a policy an attempt would be made to enslave tbe soldier's appetite, and would tend to rill the hospitals all over the country. but that is not what senator Wilson wants. He wants the soldier to make money. If this was a war being fought by slaves, the owner's policy might be one and the health ot the enslaved would require another. Who is there in society that does not daily feel tbe great desire for an apple, an orange, a piece of pie or some different kind of food from what our table furnishes, even in the midst of luxury. Where is the soldier that does not at a time feel that he bad butter to eat on his bread (can he get it but from the Sutler?), an apple, a pickle, a piece of cheese, crackers, eggs, and many articles that he feels be should eat that his health would be better and his happinees increased? The army might ask it it was possible there be one in the country that would be so un friendly to the soldier as to desire that such a privilege should be taken away from him. Where can an intelligent medical man be found who does not accommodate bis own appetite and recommend bis patients to do likewise, by eating such food as agrees best with their system? All means should be used for suppressing tbe liquor trade with soldiers; but what his appetite demands as food bis system generally requires. The health and ability of the army does not re quire such a law as the one proposed by Mr. Wileao. This is a vital qneBtion, and should D. to now One of tbe Beaufort negroes advertises his runaway master in tbe following clever tra vestie: $500 Reward.

The following items, extracted from the Washington correspondence of Eastern journals, will be found interesting: WASHINGTON, December 5. THE DOCUMENTS FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT. The documents from the State Department, to Congress today, disclose the important fact that our Government now occupies the same position that it held in reference to foreign Governments at the beginning of tbe rebellion, end that though the United States early c tiered to accept the Paris declaration in rtfetence to privateering, both England and France desired to make an exception in furor of tbe Jeff Davis Confederacy, to which the Government basrelused to yield, leaving the United Stales free from any obligation to accept the Paris declaration, while the few rebel privateers are now fugitive on the high seas, or are lying idle in Southern harbors. A resume of the documents shows the follow ing to be our relations with foreign nations : England entertains, or at least expresses, no sympathy for us, but rather the reverse. France has not been cordial, but has been lees oQ'eusive tban England. AuBlria has beun friendly, and from the outset has declared that she would not recog nize the rebel Confederacy. Prussia and all the German States have been tauallv cordial. Russia has been friendly, but anxious for tbe war to end. Sweden and Norway have been friendly from tbe beginning. Belgium is undecided, but passive. Holland is disposed to follow the lead of England at a respectful distance. Italy is full of warm sympathy for our Government and for freedom. Spain, though not aggressive, has an evi dent leaning toward the Jeff. Davis Repub lic. Denmark is .friendly. The Pope, though he announces that his Government is cot ot tbis world, but that he is concerned with spiritual things, yet if he we'e to express an opinion, he, as a good Christian, will always be on the side of law NO NECESSITY FOR ARMING THE SLAVES. It is thought very strange by the public that a few Congressmen should so eagerly press tbe policy of "arming tbe slaves," when tbe Government has never yet been able to arm with suitable guns tbe white men that are in the field, and when the Secretary of vv ar is compelled to decline trom day to day regiments after regiments of white volun teers that are tendered for the war. But two ot jeete can be bad in view by this eagerness to get black supernumeraries enlisted con tracts for more guns, and sutlersbips to feed at Government expense the idle "contra band" army. UNIFORMS ON HAND. Uniforms sufficient to supply tbe army for at least six months are now on hand or con tracted for. Before more are made it is probable that a Board of Officers will be convened to consider the propriety of changing tne pattern. THE COMMISSIONERS ON THE FREMONT CONTRACTS. The Commission now sitting in St. Louis on tbe Fremont contracts in the Western Department, have passed on a large amount of claims, in many cases stripping them of their excessive profits and ordering a fair price to be paid. It is understood that the Government has taken steps to pay promptly large amounts of such audited claims. THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTE. Vice-President Hamlin has appointed Sen ators FeBsenden and Trumbull, Regents of tbe amitbsonian instnutepro nil tne vacan cies occasioned by the death of Senator Douglas and the treason of Mason. THE CAPTURE OF MASON AND SLIDELL. The personal friends of Secretary Seward are confident that the remark made by him in bis speech on Tuesday evening, in re sponse to a serenade, that the country would witbin ten days oe eiectrinea by more wel come news than ibey have vet heard, refer red to the probability that within that time the entire acquiescence of tbe British Gov ernment in the taking of Mason and Slidell would be received, ft is believed that Lord Lyons has intimated to Mr. Seward that his Government will assure mm that tbey mean neutrality on board lueir vessels and every EX-MINISTER FAULKNER TO BE RELEASED ON PAROLE. Charles F. Faulkner, of Virginia, will be releaeed from confinement in Fort Warren on his parole. Tbe letter has probahly al ready been mailed tor that purpose, tie will pioceed immediately boutn, and procure similar release of Hon. Alfred Ely. If not successful in that errand, he has pledged himself to return to custody in thirty days. GENERAL FREMONT. It seems that General Fremont left St. Louis in violation of orders.

PROBABLE EXCHANGE OF PRISONERS. on ob off It having transpired that tbe treatment numbers ot tbe prisoners in tne nands oi tne rebels is most atrocious, the Government beginning to consider seriously tbe propriety Of an exchange. The details ot the sufferings of some Union officers, recently made known, are absolutely loathsome; and as no principle would be sacribced. some step seems neces sary for their relief. When the rebellion been crushed out, it will be easy to arrest and pun lib tbe ringleaders, including tbose wbo nave been imprisoned.

A CAUCUS OF RADICAL REPUBLICANS. There was a caucus of the radtonl Repub lican members of the House yesterday alter noon, having for its avowed object the inauguration ef a policy for their own guidance. Tbe subject of the general emancipation and arming of tbe slaves wag not broached. Tbe joint resolutions of Messrs. Eliot and Stevens, which will come np in regular order next Tuesday, are to be con solidated and made a test question, prelimi nary to the consideration of Mr. Bingham's Confiscation Bill, which is made the special order for that day. The resolutions are to tbe effect that the President of tbe United States, in his capacity of Commander-in-Chief of tbe American Army, during a state of war, bas the power to confiscate the slaves of tebuls, and that he be requested to do so. The two sections of Mr. Bingham', bill, that embrace tbe entire policy of tbe radical Re publicans or tbis uongress on tbe negro question, are the following: That every person wbo shall engage in or aid or abet tbe rebellion, shall forfeit any olaim which such person may have to tbe service or labor of any slave or slaves, and the slave or slaves of such person shall be, and are hereby declared, free mee, and forever re leased from suob servitude, any thing in the laws of the United States or of any Slate to tbe contrary DotrvitbBtanding.

Shoemaking in Constantinople. a It is at Constantinople that ehoemaklng reaches its sublimest pitoh and soars into absolute poetry. The bazaars display thou sands of pairs of slippers, delicate and small enough to tit Cinderella's self, and ol a dazzling splendor. The bearded and tur baned arlizans, under whose fingers those cunning structures develop themselves, must have a painter's soul beneath their caftans. Velvet slippats, cloth slippers, slippers of woven grass', Blippers of Tafilett lethcr, slippers of crimson of pink, of or ange, white, azure, purple, of all oolors, ex cept the sacred green, wnictt may not be profaned by such usage. Slippers royally embroidered in gold, brightly braided in silver, jeweled with ruby afid turquoise, tufted with dainty down irora tbe wild swan's breast of snow, wrought in seed pearl, tbe whitest that Oman and Serendib can supply. There are soma' slippers that seem to emulate tbe gorgeoas man or the drugon fly, the gold powdereA purple of the emperor butterfly; there ire others as chastely beautiful as the pale pinkish shell on the sea-Bbore ; others again so elaborate that months must have been required for the patient needle to elaborate Aho30 golden sprigs of flower, to combine Ah at intricate scroll of pearl work, to compete that Arabic nourish. What sort of feot are worsky of those ra diant covering feet or nymphs, ot .peris, or actual bona Jtiic women ot tins matter of taot, muttonchop world we live in? At any rate, they must be small, shapely, and fair to look upon ; and it is a fact that Turkish feet are remarkably delicate in both sexes. Those superb shoes are not all for fomale wear; some or the simplest mere crimson or violet velvet, stiffened with gold or tloss- silk till little of the ground-work is left vis ibly under the mass of the needlework are meant for dandy boys and gay young agas of fashion. True, tho degenerate Pachas and other officials prefer to buy their boots in Rue Rivoli, but still the slipper trade is a gainful one. Besides the splendid fabrics 1 have spoken of, and which are worn by sultanas and ladies of rank, there are every where exposed for sale wholo mountains of the yellow slippers and yellow leather socks which Turkish women alone may wear, the red slippers popular with male Mohamme dans, aud tbe dull black or purple shoos to which Greeks and Armenians are legally restrioted. , No Christian may wear yellow shoes on pain of the bastinado, without he be a dragoman, or under European protec tion ; but now a days every non-Mohamme dan who can afford it buys, first, his berath of naturalization, and then a sufficiency of French boots and bottines for himself and family. So, in the palmy days of persecu tion, Jews and Cagots, in some of the most civilized realms of Christian Europe, were compelled to wear shoes of a peculiar hue, as a badge of proscription. to of is has the for the to was the on the to ar. be The following table shows the number of men now in tbe service ot tbe uovernment and battling for the preservation of the Union, the integrity ot tbe country and lor tbe pre eervation of the old Stars and Stripes against sedition, treason, insurrection and rebellion.
