In the mean time the Administration ia picking out the sol diers, and giving them furloughs, upon con dition they will vote the Republican ticket! The Concord correspondent oi the Boston 1'osl says: "Sunday was quite a lively day here in the military way, detachments from the Second, filth and Twelfth New Hampshire, ttegi ments arriving home on furlough. For tho pist ssveral mon hs they luve been guarding the camp of rebel pnsonor3 at Point Look out, l'ortions of the Second and Sixth have reenlmted as veteran, but the Twelfth have not been in service leng enough to be enti tled to that privilege. It is supposed, nay, it is well known that all or nearly all, will vote the Republican ticket-tin pait pay for being allowed tho privilege ol coming home to see their friends. The Demociats in t he several regiments wore left to do guard duty while their comrades came to exercise the right of suffrage. It isn't a part ol the Re publican programme to let Democrats have a furlough until alter the election. I heard of one aoldier, belonging to the Twelfth, that said in so many words that his regiment was canvassed, and the Republicans were given a furlough while the Democrats were left be hind. More regiment?, or part of regiments, are expected to arrive this week. By this action the Repnblican leaders show, their fears of the result of a fair, impartial vote' as it is the opinion of many that even with this help they will be routed." In this fraudulent manner the Republi cads expect to succeed. 'the Florida Ojsusrer, Tho public are already in possession of the main tacts connected ' with the recent griev cus disaster to tho Union arms in Florida. A thousand poor fellows have been needless ly butchered, most of them from our own city and neighborhood, in an expedition which, bad it succeeded, would have done nothing towards ending the war, and which was set on foot avowedly for political and not military purposes. It would be easy, under the circumstances, to cummont in an indignant strain upon the folly and crime of this waste of this of blood and treasure; but we prefer to itate a few facts which should be kept before the country. 1. The expedition against Florida was exclusively the work of Abraham Lincoln. It was -underHrrken not only against the ad vice but without the knowledge of Gen. Hal- lock aud the Secretary of war. 2. It is universally conctded"by military men of all parties that Florida has do strat egic value whatever. That the army sent to fight in or occupy the Stte is an army wanted, as much so as if it was sunk in the ees. ; '".. J' ' ," 3. : Fiteen hum'- ti mon have been killed or maimed to effect some object which is not the overthrow of the armed rebellion. And if the conquest o f that state is preserved in it will be at the cost many thousand of fruit lessly butchered Union soldiers. . , 4. Tho administration papers admit that the object of the occupation of the state was a political one, and to restore it bominally 10 tne Union before the rebellion wis over-' thrown. """ " .

The House took up the bill.'defining (he jurisdiction ol the Court of .Claims, not to include any claim agonist the Lmled states, growing out of the destruction of property by the Army and Navy engaged in suppress ing tho rebellion. Mr. Thomas wanted to amend so that Quartermasters, Generals, ur Solicitors, or Commissioners in designated districts may adjust the claims. . Mi. Wilson caused a letter froup Solicitor Wbitin to be read, showing that the claims nre principally for persons in the rebellious States, and would reqvire hundreds of mil lions to bo expended, which would have the eliect of crippling the war. It would be better to postpone action on the claims till we can act undorstandingly. Mr. McClung, of Missouri, asked leave to make aniour's speech relative to the per sonalities of his culleagues King and Blair, but objection was made. On motion of Mr, Kldridge, of Missouri, be avked, but ailed to obtain Icavs to intro duce a resolution calling on the President's Secretary of State and Secretary of War to fnrnish the names of all parsons arrested and confined in forts, and persons who have not been tried or convicted by any Civil or Criminal Court; and also the namos of those who have been banished to the rebellious States.

Several momoiialls, portions, Sic, were presented, including resolutions from the Wisconsin Legislature in favor of extending the bounties to April 1.

The National Convention of the .Admin istrntion ntrtv. tor the Dumose of nomina tinc a candidate for President, is to be held at Baltimore, on' the 7th of June. The ! strife for nomination is bitter, and wjll be come mote o as Convention day approaches The Counecticnt Democracy., The following are among the resolutions adopted by the recent Democratic State Con vention of Connecticut. "SftolvKt, That as the delibcrativa opinion ol this Convention, the parly tn p"wr diie not intend to prciervo the Cunstltion which we received from our fathers, and is Dot con ducting the present war for that purpose, but for the purpose of revolutionizing the domestic institutions of the Southern States, and of establibhioz a new eovernment of despotic power on the ruim of lbs old Un ion. "Resolved, That tho entire perversion by the Abolition' Hepublia n party of the object ol the present war as declared by Congress, "to defend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution and preserve the Union with all the dignity and righ's of the several States un mpa red" to a pestilent Aboli ion crusade for the total destruction of all State equality is an infamou waste of the nation's blood and trrn'ure. "Resolved, That the grand schems of the present Administration to fill the country with national banking associations, supplant the banks of the several States, to monopo lize the whole paper curjency, and to draw, the whole banking capital of the States and people under the supervision and control of the Treasury Department, and to concentrate the whole moneyed power ol the country in the hands ol the President, is a bold and daring encroachment on the well-known and universally acknowledged rights of the States, more dangerous even than that groat enemy of litejty, Urge standing army. i "Retlived, That fhejrross mismanagement of the war and needleajftxpenditare of vast sums of money makpj the Administration moraljy responsible ! thousands of livel uselessly sacrificed and Vie addition ol hun dreds of rfiiiliins of dolLfts to the burdens of the petople, and while it ts made the interest of the thousands of retainers which the Ad ministration gathers arcand it to continue the war-and all the present ruinous expendi ture of public money, no effort will be made by those in power to bring this unhappy dif ficulty to a close, and we agree with a high Republican authority, that, should Mr. Lin coln be re elected, not only will 'the digni ty and honor of the country suffer,' but the war cWinue to languish through his whole Administration, uotil the public debt shall become a burden too great to be borne " The State election in Connecticut for Gov arnor and Legislature comes off on the first Monday in April, SIMv Oin- murk Allies Fiplil T!ip Catnsc ol" (lie Disaster In E'loi-itlii. The New York Timrs' (Abolition) Flori da correspondent, in giving an account of tho late oe'eat of the federal force in that State, under General Seymour, thus alludes to the cause of the reverse. He fays: "At the commencement of the fight the Eighth United States colored troops ware supporting Hamilton's battery, but wh'n their assistance lecami really indispensable , ly some strange order they filed to the tight in rear of, the battery, for the purpose of joining their right on the loft of the Seventh Con" nec'.icul. At that particulae time the move ment was decidedly an error, for by carrying it out it left Hamilton's battery unsupported. In an attempt to enfilade the enemy on his right, Hamilton moved forward four pieces; but, berora he got in'o position, tho rebels on that portion of their line had concenira ted all their tiro upon him and the Eighth U. S., who hud again come up to his support. In twenty minutes' time Hamilton lost 44 men, kilied and and'weunded, and 40 horses. The Eighth also suffured sevetely." This mysterious filing to the rear of our "loyal black allies," is funhar noticed by Lieutenant Eddy, ot the Third Bhode Island Battery. Ho says: ''It was our misfortune to have for sup ports a negro regiment, who, by running, caused us to lose our pieces. The fiht lasted three hours, when, finding his small army so much cut up, the General ordered a retreat." This shows how much reliance on be placed upon negro soldiers. Honorably Done A circumstance has recently come within our knowledge that we feel like making public. It is the fact that Judge Jewott, President of the Pittsburg, Columbus and Cincinnati railroad company, has banded to the widow of Burr McMullen, formerly an engineer on tbat road, a draft for seven bun dred dollars. This vrluntary action of the Judge, was taken on being made" acquainted with the fact that Mr. McMullen had left an e!icmnbran''e of a few hundred dollars fa sum less, than tho 'amount donated,) on a piece of property which he was grtfdoaly relieving at th e time of his unexqected tak ing off. It will be remembered that the de ceased lo.-t his life last fall while in the ser vice of the company. No suit had been commenced, or threatened; and even with ajudgment for damages (which it is by no means certain weu'.d have been rendered) collection could not have been made. Un der tbeee circumstances, ihe action of Judge Jewett is greatly to his honor and will de servedly commend him and his company to the good feeling of community. Newark Advocate. T!i Fomcroy Circular Corres l0itfliHicc lsetwcepi Chase and Lincoln. We find the lollowi",g in the Washington correspondence of the Cincinnati Commercial of yesterday: "An interesting correspondence has taken place between Secretary Chase and Pre si dent Lincoln on the subject of the Pomeroy Circular. Some days since Chase sent a note to the President, saying he had not seen the Pomeroy Circular until published, and that he disapproved of it; but, uevertheless, at the solicitation of bis friends, he stood in the at titude of a candidate for the Presidency, and he submitted to Mr. Lincoln the question, whether such an attitude was incompatible with his relations as a member of the Cabi net. The President replied that he had not seen Mr. Pomeroy 's circular at all, and as to whether Mr. Chase's candidacy was incom patible with bis positioa as a member of the Cabinet, that was a question for him (Chase) to decide." If that is true, wu do not see how Mr. Chase can reman in the Cabinet. Mr. Lin coln as much as says to Mr. Chase: "Sir, when you are ready to offer your resign tion, 1 am prepared to accept it.' The Pros idential chaldion is certainly boling. Bubble, bubble. Toil and trouble! . , ;, ft-Gon. Gilmore is charged in "loyal" papers with attempting to conceal Irom the Northern people the defeat of one of hisdi visions in Florida.

The same "loyal" journals also pitch into the Washington censorship of the telegraph. News of army movements, they allege, is printed in the Washington p pers, which is not permitted to be telegraph edi The people must wait for the informa tion allowing to be publishe in Washing ton till they get it by "due course of mail."

Secretary Stanton, in reply to a letter re questing his views regarding Joint Resolu tion No. 41. of the House of Representative to continue the payment of bounties, says, First, That in my opinion the requisite troops can be raised mere expeditiously by continuing the payment of bounties to the 1st ol April, than by other means. Second, That at present great exertions are being made in the several States to raise their quotas by volunteers to avoid a dra't, the people preferring that method of fur nishing troops. , ' Third, Thaf Gen, Burnside, Gen. Hancock and State Legislatures and Executives are earnestly requesting a continuance of boun ties until the first of April. Fourth, That in my opinion, the joint resolutions of the Home is wise and judi cious, and that its speedy passage by the Senate would greatly promote the public welfare, and strengthen the military force more quckly and efficiently than can be ac complished in anv other mode. fXT'lt would havo been an excellent joke in Mr Lincoln's eye if, under bis ten per cent, amnesty proclamation, one thousand and thirty-Mx men, sent to Florida organize a rotten-borough, could have neutralized the votes of more than half a million voters in the Krapira State. Almost as good a joke as it was for Mr. Lincoln, riding among the fresh graves ond the burying parlies on the battle-field of Antietam, to slap Marshal Lamon on the knee and &k him to sing the negro melody of "Jump Jim Crow." Capi tal ioke! But the "twenty millions mostly fools" will not be able to see the point, or laugh at it as Mr. Lincoln.". Y. World. Tin Draft Uolmks Count? Quota. Little Holmes, which gives the largest Democratic majority ol any countv in the State iq porportion to its population, is also the Mrs l county to till ber quota ol volun teers under the Kte cills of the President; and contrary to the report which appears in a Cincinnati paper, the recruits were all raised within her own borders, save in three townships where they bad to buy men. Holmes countv with ber quota full, is stig- niatizid by the Abolitionists as a "copper head," "disloyal" county, while Lor&ine in the same district, where there has scarcely been one man enlisted in a month, is strictly loyal and ultra patriotic Statesman. , .; rVTTlir ! f)irrnmBnt ' mediaina manufactory in Philadelphia which gives employment to two hundred and twenty- It take-t more grave-diggers to bury the aeaa. nxcnavg. .. . -TTivt Kai.it. .IirnA Kmmilt Kan . h puronased the, faim ol James Caldwell, in ficKaway towunuip, cooiaiuing aores, atv $80 per acres, $68,000, wtkmlU Demo- errttl. , - I'O lh n4or O..WI VtimmJU ol tlUA mil kn.t-n . .
