being allowed tho privilege ol coming home

several regiments wore left to do guard duty
while their comrades came to exercise the

said in so many words that his regiment was

furlough while the Democrats were left be

'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. """ " . " ,, I

T!ip Catnsc ol" (lie Disaster In
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.
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

"An interesting correspondence has taken
place between Secretary Chase and Pre si

to the President, saying he had not seen the

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

seen Mr. Pomeroy 's circular at all, and as to
whether Mr. Chase's candidacy was incom

that Genera' Kilpatrick, with a force of oav
alrymen, has arrived at the Whits House
rfi forme 1 a junction with a force sent up bv
General Battler Irom the Peninsula. This
statement is based oa the fast that two of
General Kilpatrick'! scouts have come bark;
ard msao the above report, and the report is'
believed in the Army of the Potomac
Kilpatrick is thus Within a few miles of
Richmond; and as General Buttler is eo op
erating with him, we may expect to hear ol
startling news from that quarter in a dav or
two. On his reaching White House. Kil
patrick having orders so to do, avoided meet
ing any large force of rabels, After he had
left the point an other party of 800 picked
cavalry were sent out to communicate with
him, they, however, met a rebel force, and
as their orders were not to fight if it could
be avoided, they moved toward the East,
and the command not striking in the direot
road, came up on a party ol rebels near Fred
ericksburg and captured them and durnt
their camp, and destroyed a quantity of army
stores, and then passed on their way to join
Wasuixqtoh, March 4. The President
received dispatch from Gen. Butler, stat
ing tbat Kilpatrick arrived yesterday within
our linos, with a loss of less than one hun
dred and fifty men. lie had several skir

Dahlg'en, Cooke and Litchfield; the two for
mer supposed to be prisoners. Kilpatrick
festroyed a large portion of the Virginia
Central railroad, and several miles of the ca

property. He penetratod to the outer forti
fications of Richmond.

Sjcrctnry Slanton Advises n Con
limiancc oi Bounties to April 1.
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. , .;

were oflbred, but found no purchasers. Their
nomieal rates were $6,00(0,50 cwt. ,
Siikep The ofieringa during the wesk
were light. The principle pirtion that ar
rived passed on to the Etstera markets.
The sales wore uniform at th9 prices, th
following being all that we could learu of,

Cattls The supply during ths week
was not large. The principle receipts were.

That "t p round" of the ladder of high
prices which gavo way at the closs of th
market lost wesk, has t3n restored to its
place to-day, and another. one addnd. . Ws
have never knjwn but oni, if any, higher
market than we find to day for beef cauls.
In 1857 there were several weeks fiL wT

at most extravagant eitimuei of weight, so
that many ol uhose bought at 15o. will prove
equal to 16a a pound for ths actual net
weight of beef.
We kaow that only fair medium quality
cattle have been sold at 14u. lb on th
scales, at 60ll lb cwt. Although th
prices are so extravagantly high to iUy(
nearly all the stock will be sold Wore dark,
and nono are reported for to morrow, though;
some small lots-may arrive, but not enough
to break d i wa the market liko last week.
Then w had 3400 bead on Monday, and
