There Is a fair prospect of the capital eie cotton of traitors at lat. General Halleck has a party of desperadoes in custody at St. Louis, who have been tried atid convicted bj court-martial, on the charge of bridge burning and other similar barbiristns. The penalty is death, and General H.tlleck is not the man to deal with gloved hands with such customers. Action is What Our Soldiers Want. When Julian led his sixty thousand Ro mans across the burning plaios of Assyria, tie taught the world, perhaps unconsciously, the great secret of successful warfare. He might have turned a3ido to encamp his tired legions upon plains of unsurpassed fertility ; instead, Le held them face to face with ob stacles and danger which seemed to thicken with the progress of each dny, so that when they pitched their tents under the walls of Persia's proudest city, they were as nearly invincible as legions of men could be made. When he turned his back upon Persia, his retreat was, owiiig to that severe discipline, a series of brilliant victories, np to the day of bis heroic death. This was the result of un remitting action. Iron tbews, iron endur ance, lofty courage, valor in the field, wis dom in council these are the offsprings of well-directed action ; and these, to an army, are indispensable. An hour of Mill Springs, with its rain of lead and hail of iron, so fruitful in ghastly wounds and death, but crowned with triumph, is more glorisuj to the soldier than a year of monotonous ease. Traitors High and Low. The report of the Potter Investigating Committee divulges the act generally be lieved before that there are traitors every rlre. The Committee have already ferreted out over five hundred case3, persons in the tmp'.oy of the Government, who are trait ors, and they express their conviction that a liirjre number of disloyal ca-.e3 are still to bs Ibiiiid in the various uepirimeute persons who have orenly and boldly avowed their sympathies with the rebels. It is shown that a large nuniltT of persons who openly fevered the rebels, who were, in fact, the matures of such conspirators as Floyd, Thompson and tbeir friends, have beea re tained in places of trust and responsibility p'aces where they have opportuuitits to possess themselves of Government eecre's, or where they could easily act out such minor treason as filling eh-jlla with saud, or disabling the engines ot'our war steamers. Jacobs, made clerk in the War Depart ment lajt September, after beiDg turned out of the Interior Department, said: "If he bad known that be would be turned out be could have got an cilice in the Government of the Southern Confederacy but that it was then too late." Goodwin, clerk in the Paymaster Gen eral's Department, thought the traitorous oflicera of the Cored States army "'were just as honorable men as those who remained true to the Government." Cadman, messenger, "claimed Jeff. Davis for his friend, and eaid if be was turned out in Washington he could get a better office under the Confederate Government." CIa:k, clerk in the Commissary Depart ment, declared that "if the South attacked Washington, he would not take up arms against the South." Isaao Miller, still employed in the arsenal, said, immediately after the attack on our troope, in Baltimore, "Northern hands are now stained with Southern blood;" that "it must be reversed at all hazards;" that "the South must and should be maintained." He has a son a surgeon in the rebel army. This would be a pleasant man to have in the 'shell" department. Lloyd Harrison, Second Lieutcnint of Sherman's Battery, obtained bis commission after having enlisted in a rebel company, and boasted of this double engagement Lieutenant Throckmorton, United States army, is in open sympathy with his father. This father "is a chaplain in the Black Horse Cavalry, in the Secession army; he was clerk in the War Department, aqd was ordered to be arrested by Gen. Mansfield for carrying information to the rebels while clerk, but he escaped. He had a secret till made in the seat of bis bnggy, in which he used to carry letters, &c, to the rebels." The truth is the country has more to fear from rebels and traitors in the .North than the Sonth. It will require more skill and Gen eralship to whip and kill the horde of thieves and conspirators in high places and low who are living on and stealing the money of honest tax payers than it will to crush the rebellion South of Mason and Dixon's. Rev. C. B. Davidson. well known divine (at least well known in Iadiana, from whence he comes,) has received and accepted a call fiom Un'on Chapel in ibis city. He will enter npon the regular discharge of his da ties on Sabbath nex. Cotton Seed. editor of the Valley farmer, of St. Louis, Mo., has upward of 1)0,000 pounds of Tennessee upland cotton eeea, enough to plant twelve or fifteen thou sand acres. He proposes to distribute seed without charge to the patrons of that journal. Street Passenger Cars. An "Unprotected Femalo" asks in the Philadelphia Ledger: "Are there no means by which ladies can be protected from the disgusting nuisance of tobacco spitting in the passenger ears of the city?" This filthy practice is not tolerated in the street cars of this city nor is smoking in the ears allowed. The Cincinnati street passen ger cars are models of neatness and comfort. They are emphatically the coaches of the people, and an indie pensable convenience. Adams Express Company. announced, this popular "institution" one to which the press this, as well as other cities, are almost daily indebted for favors In advance of the mail Jim rented and fitted up one of the commo dious rooms in Pike's Opera House for an office. We learn that the fitting np being complete, the room will be thrown open on Saturday next for the inspection of the friends and patrons of the compaay. Tin attention of the Commissary Depart ment it called to the doings of the mn left in charge of the camp, near Glendale, re cently vacated by Colonel McLean. It said that he is celling rice at five cents Iron Advancing. A meeting of the principal iron manufac turers and others Interested in the produc tion and manufacture of iron, was held la Pittsburg on Monday last, when an advance in the price of iron and nails was agreed on and at once put into operation. Repository for February. This unexceptionable and beautiful work is on our table. We can not speak too highly of this periodical it should receive the hearty indorsement and support of all who deBire the dissemination of a pure and healthy literature. The February number has two beautiful illustrations. The literary contents are of a varied character articles by some of the first talent of the country The Jltpository is published at $2 per year, by Messrs. Poe & Hitchcock, of this city. After General McClellan. The Washington correspondent of the New York rat, under date of January 28, writes: It is rumored that two or three leading members of the House of Representatives have speeches prepared aimed at General McClellan, which they would have delivered several days since but for the prospect that there will soon be more fighting. Facts Lave been gathered, it is said, which are un ktown to the public fit large, and which tend to prove the inefficiency and incompe terjcy of the commanding General. The dis position among a large majority of both Senate and House is to wait i.atiently a while longer to give General McClellan the confidence of the country so far as a Con gressional majority can do so, and to dis approve all attacks made directly upon him. The feeling, however, is so decided against him in influential quarters that it is useless to cover it up, as it is one of the important facts of the time. This feeling is rapidly spreading, but, as yet, the General can com mand a heavy majority in Congress as bis frieLds. Wk have received the first number of the Eleventh Ohio, published for the regiment by Wright, Howard 4 Lambright dated at Point Pleasant, Va , January 20, 1SC2. It is a small quarto, filled with sprightly and in teresting reading. One of the modes of smuggling whisky into the camps is thus narrated: Empty oyster cnn3 are collected sufficient to fill un oyster box, have the cms filled with the "article," mark the box "Maltoy's HiiltiiLore oysters," addressed to , Point P easant, 'ihereis no difficulty getting it off the wharf-boat and stowing it away at borne to await the coming of customers, which, we are sorry to s-iy, are not slow coming, nor very scarce, f rom ' one who knows a thing or two,'' we learn it com nuu ds from $1 50 to $2 per pint. The members of the Eleventh are at pres ent comfortably quartered in houses. a Wendell Phillip?, the Abolitionist, deliv ered a speech last week at the anniversary of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society, in which he gave utterance to the following remarkable statement, showing his belief that the Abolition cause is killed: "We have no Cabinet; it is hidden behind George B. McClellan. There is no Secretary of State, or any thing else. They are all merged in the person of McClellan. But he is not the power Kentucky is onr master, we are tied and crippled by the desires and the fears of Kentucky and Kentucky's children." Somi of the newspapers advise oar sol diers, especially artillerymen, to wear oiled wool in their ears to protect them from the concussion. A correspondent who professes to know, sajs: "No man's ears will be hart by tbe report of artillery, if he will open his mouth. Just as we throw np a sash to pre vent our glass being shattered by the dis charge of cannon, so we should open our Koums 10 save our ears, ine concussion comes then on both sides of the drum of the ear, and has no ill effect." The recom mendation can be easily tried without do ing any harm, if it ehould not be effectual. A recent letter from Lexington, Ky., states that fully one-half of the mules re ceived at that place from Cincinnati, are yearlings, not worth fifty dollars a head, which have been received at one hundred and ten dollars per head, and which either tbe Inspector has permitted to pass or con nived with the purchaser in palming off npon the Government. If this be true, the plunderers should be looked after. It is said that there is now in the State Lunatic Asylum, in Columbus, a man who has been there Beven years, and imagines himself the Son of God. He has lately Wed for twenty-one days, and at the end seemed not the worse for it, only a little more excitable. This statement is confirmed by nurses and doctors. He resisted any temptation pre sented to him to eat and drink (ill the expi ration of tbe twenty-one days. In no instance in the world has rebellion been a safe business. Those who undertake to break up Governments, and sacrifice what others hold to be vital interests, assume a bloody responsibility. The process is very unsafe, and all men of sense appreciate it. Men ere apt to lose the rights Government guarantees to them when they spurn those guarantees by attempting to destroy the Government. Colonel Sam Pike, of the Hillsborough Gazette, has been getting a new and beauti ful head for his paper, we mean the one on his own shoulders could not well be let tered, though it might possibly be made torn handsomer. Lieutenant A. O. Burt and General Mc Cook, who were severely wounded at the battle of Mill Spring, are on their way home. After General McClellan. Frauds in Army Contracts--The Shoddy Business in Philadelphia. [Special Dispatch to the Evening Post.] Wasiiinutok, January 29. Extensive frauds in army contractu have jnst been dis covered in Philadelphia, and Messrs. Odell, of New York, and Covode, of Pennsylvania, (members of the House Committee on the Conduct of tbe War,) bavs h ft this city for Philadelphia to investigate the affair. It is understood that some of the con tractors in Philadelphia, who have under taken to furnish clothing for the army, have gone largely into tbe "shoddy" business, aed that many of the uniforms and blankets are of wretched quality. The War Committee will give the whole case a thorough sifting, and in the mean time all army contracts are stopped at the War Department. Great alarm has been created among the contractors here by this development. Many of them hold certificates for goods sold and delivered, and are awaiting with anxiety the result of tbe examination at the Philadelphia Quartei master's Department. is a A Veteran Gone. Rev. W. J. Thompson, known to all our readeis, died at bis resi dence near Pekin, Clermont County, Ohio, Friday, January 3, sited about ninety four lean.

THE REBELS REFUSE TO EXCHANGE CORCORAN. The rebels have refused to exnhanrra Cnln. tel Corcoran for Smith. Hie convicted nirate. or Wilcox for Pegram. They say they won't surrender any of the hostages unless the principle that pirates or privateersmen are prisoners oi war is admitted by -the Govern mont. THE REBELS PUTTING ON AIRS. The rebels have refused to receive two inousaca suits or clothes sent to our prison ers, because of their not being addicssed to the Confederate Government POSTOFFICE RECEIPTS. The postal receipts for the letters carried during the last quarter of 18C1 are nearly as great as for the year before the rebellion. The cost of transportation is $3,000,000 less. THE BURNSIDE EXPEDITION. According to letters from Hatteras, Gen eral Burnside did every thing possible for his men and vessels. He is full of hope, sympathy and thoughtfulness. He refused to tnke any rest, and exclaimed: "The con tractors have ruined me, but God holds mo in bis palm, and all will yet be well." It is charged that tbe captains tried to wreck their vessels in order to make a proli'able sale to the Government. There were several instances of hard-heartedness toward each other. The steamer Pocahontas, having one hundred and thirteen horses and the Rhode Island Battery on board, is a total wreck. During tbe gale she blew out, and her boiler, which was patched, broke, and her stearing gear and smoke pipe blew down. A leak was sprung, and finally the hulk ran ashore. There was drunkenness and great disorder aboard. All tbe horeci but twenty-four, but no men, were lost. The vessel was bnilt in 1829 and chartered from Baltimore. There was misrepresenta tion as to tbe draft of water both possessed and required by the vessels. General Burn sides suspects that not a few traitors are aboard. There is great indignation in consequence of the frauds in tbe purchases and charter ing of the transports. Very Interesting from Tennessee. [From the Louisville Democrat, 29th.] Through a gentleman who arrived in the city last evening direct from Nashvilie we learned some very interesting facts. lie ten Knoxviiie, i-.nst Tennessee, in which vicinity he lives, tao weeks ago to day, for Nashville, intending to work his way into Kentucky, as he has business of great importance in Washington. He was in Nashville on tbe dav tbe battle of Lorran'a Old Fields was fought, but left before any report had reached that city. In passing from Gainesboro he met, at different times, a large number of soldiers flying to their home?. They were in squads of two or three, sometimes five or six, end their siory was almost word for word tbe same. They reported to him that Crittenden or- deied en advance, relying upon the informa tion bis scouts had brought him, that there two of Federal troops to be met. Zollicoffer endeavored to per suade him to recall his order, but be rufu-ed, saying that be never recalled an order. Zol licoffer then replied thct ho might as well take ont the men and shoot or bang them, but as be was ordered to go, be would do so, and the tears stood in bis eves as he spoke. Tbe attack was made, and the two regiments they had been expecting to meet fell back for about ba f a mile. They, thinking the victory theirs, pursued, and only learned their mistake when they were attacked from both flanks, as well as in the front. When Zollicoffer fell, Crittenden not be ing seen on the ground, a couple of Co onels whom be did not know took command until Colonel Cnmmings ordered a retreat. Some one cried that the day was lost, "every man lor nimseit." lney tuen threw down every thing that could impede tbeir flight, and tusbed for tbe intrenebmems, and tuen tor the river. The rush for the boats was so great that hundreds were crowded into the river and drowned: the cavalrv nimher! intn the Bwollen stream pellmel), and. many of mew no ui;o urowueu. ine lowest esti mate any of them put on tho rebel loss was one tnousand some saying fully fifteen hundred but they stated that the majority o them were drowned. By this gentleman we learn that Parson Brownlow s health is very poor. His son stated that he doubted if his father would live to reach tbe Federal lines; and if his health would permit, he did not believe the rebel cuard would let him eo. It is tn ha hoped, however, tbat the defeat of Critten den's army, the death of Zollicoffer, and the panic which evidently now prevails all thrcuen Jiast Tennessee, toeether with Gen eral Thomas' advance, will ooen the wav for the safe arrival of the Parson in a laud of freedom. mis gentleman is on bis way to see Aridy Johnson, and reports that the rebels have seized Johnson's bouse, taming it into a hospital, and confiscating all his property; tbat in order to save his n other from the most fiendish persecution, one of Johnson's eons has taken the oath to support the rebel cause, or at least not to furnish aid and comfort to the Federals. Another son is hiding among tbe hills, and has been since laBt December boking with eager, longing eyes for tbe approach of the Federal forces, and the relief from a life of wretched ness. We sincerely trust tbe news is true that General Thomas is advancing into Tennes see, and pray he may not stop till he has taken possession of Knoxviiie. Thousands will flock to bis standard, and the great avenue of communication between the East ana vv est will be thus broken up. We learn that a truly remarkable corre spondence, relating, in good part, to affairs of public interest, though of course not des titute of those lighter and more nh&rmino- features which lend such graceful point to the letters of highly-cultivated ladies of the world, is regularly carried on between Mrs. James Gordon Bennett, of this city, and Mrs. Lincoln, of tbe White House. Mrs. Lincoln's letters are spoken of by those who have been favored with an occasional glimpse at their pages, as remarkable for shrewd observation, witty, yet good-natured satire, and a most genuine spirit of patriotism. Graceful gif a of (lowers and other beautiful trifles (re qnently accompany these most interesting missives; and for some time past Mrs. Ben nett has been weekly honored with a superb nouquei irom ine residential conservatory. We be! ieve tbat Mr. Henri Wickoft' has sev eral times had the honor of being tbe bearer of these elegant tokens of friendship. A. Y, Tribune. Bad Fire-arms The Washington corre spondent of the Baltimore Sun writes as fol lows: The regiment raised by Senator Wilson, and now commanded by Colonel Gove, of tbe regular army, has but juKt received good arms for the spurious Enfield rifles which they first brought here, and which were then thought to be uncommonly fine. But use bas demonstrated otherwise, and the same is probably true of tbe arms of many regi ments which have been auDplied by specu lator in Europe. They bear tbe "rower" mark, Arc, but are not the genuine articles. Tbe European muskets imported into this country are none of them equal to tbe Springfield gun. Tbe French musket comes nearest to that weapon, and the English next. Tbe German gnns are very inferior. Governor Yates, in a message to the Con stitutional Convention of that State, now in session, save tbat tbe total indebtedness of Illinois is n.400,000. "Tommy, what did tbe Israelites do after they crossed tbe Red Sea?" "I doesn't know, ma am, but I guess they dried them selves." Secretary Reward will hereafter receive members of Congress on business on Satur days, com menciug with Saturday, the first of next month. Charlotte Cuabmaa and Anna Cora Mowatt-Ritchie are passing tbe winter at Why Do Ant Buch Thino? It Is now said tbat the stamp tax on newspapers has been abandoned by Congress, but that they are to be taxed according to circulation. What folly is displayed in this I Let Con press tax property, of every kind and name, if thought best, and newspapers with the rest. But what folly to single out a depart ment of labor, suffering more from tbe war than almost any other that could be named, and impose unequal burdens upon it. As well tax shoemakers, cabinet-makers, tailors, Ac All this vain search to avoid meeting the matter of direct taxes boldly and squarely upon the basis acted upon by the State gov ernments it seems to us is sheer nonsenso. Tbe idea of raising money by any dodges to avoid imposingbeavy burdensupon property, as such, will fail in the end and only;lead tf e national treasury deeper and still deeper into trouble. Sandunktf Regitter. MrRPERl M croerI Mr. Charles Jones, one of the Conncilmon of the Third Ward, in Marietta, and a member of the Second Vir ginia Cavalry, relates that Captain Nonl took two prisoners at tbe fight near dUetta burg, disarmed them and held them as pris oners of war; that Captain Powell, of the same regiment, who was in tbe rear during tbe fight, in the absence of Captain Neal, went to tbe two prisoners, and drew a navy revolver and presented it at one of the pris oners, who threw up his hands and cried, for God's sake, not to shoot him, that he was unarmed, Ac. Captain Powell replied that dead men tell no tales, and then shot both tbe prisoners. Great excitement and indignation prevails in tbe regiment. The matter will be investi gated, unquestionably, and the murderer punished. M arietta Hepublican. That Set or Teeth Our readers will re member the case we noticed soaie time since of a gentleman of Euclid who swallowed a set of artificial teeth while asleep. From tbe time of tbe accident he has been under treat ment by Doctor Stromr. who haa rued everv endeavor to eet the trouhleaoifte intm.tnr out of his patient's body. Tbe toeth were soon got out of the stomach Into tbe bowels, where they remained for about seven week?, causing considerable pain at intervals. A day or two since they passed out of the body in tbe usual manner, leaving the man per fectly well. The teeth are now in Doctor Strong's office. We have not learned whether the owner intends haviuir them re set in his mouth. Cleveland Herald. General Cass bas over 300 acres which, though they lie within the limits of tbe city of Detroit, have no houses or stores built upon them. For this.property he was taxed on a valuation of over $200,000. His man of business objected, but when he went before the assessors to make his obiection good, he found a land broker present who offered him $400,1)00 m cash for the property, and had a large sum of money in his band as a proof mat ne meant, wnat ne said, as the land will Le worth to the General's grand-children three or four times the amount, the oiler was declined and the taxes paid. A rumor prevails at Washineton that while the public is looking for the cutting off of the Tennessee and Virginia Railroad somewhere in the neighborhood of Knox viiie, the real movement on the road is now making by General Rosecrans and Colonel Gaifield, who are even now marching from Gauley River in Virginia toward tbat road. II tbis is so, it win De turning the rebel tlink to some purpose, and will create great con sternation at Manassas, as the point of inter section will not be very far from the imme diate rear of the rebel army.
