against having troops for so short

originally proposed offering for
six months, but some of the Gov

four months, to which all the

the ground that it might take

they would be needed to sus

cenncpTios is ins oueenhack factory.
Tbe main sensatioa to day is created by a
partial developmert ol circumstances upon
which charges are made against tbe Treas
ury Department, which I alluded to in my
last despatch. A Committee consisting ql
five Republicans and four Democrats, was ap
pointed by tbe liouse to day to investigate
the cause.
Tbe alleged corruption is in the printing
department, where tbe greenbacks are turned
out by steam engine and machinery, and
done up to an it the pressing demands of the
Treasury. This branch of the service is un
der the management of one S. M. Claik,
against whom curious rumors have been a
float (or two or three months. Efforts have
been made to have Mr. Chase remove this
man Clark, but without avail, as be seemed
to have a hold on the Secretary that could
not be loosened. Wbat tbe spell was, with
which he beguiled the father of greenbacks,
no one could tiactly toll, though there were
seme curious conjectures.
Among the rumors now floating, and
which I believa are embodied in tbe charges,
is mentioned a discrepancy in tho fractional
currency account, there being a variance of
about twenty millions a mere traction ol
the great aggregate irom tbe amount which
is required o be kept in circulation, and re
ported by the Secretary as actually in circu
it is also charged that among the females
employed in the greenback factory, Mr.
Clark has employed women of easy virtue,
and that the most bare faced treachery is
practiced in tbe department with these wo
men. it is even mii this branch of tbe ser
vice has a fen rooms fitted up in oriental
style ofsplcodor, and that a regular harem is
kept under ibe control pf a leading cfBcer,
for the benefit of persons high in the confi
dence of the President. In tine, the charges
amount to this: that the greenback factory is
a place of easy virtue lor tho benefit of pari
ties ol easy morals.
Ibere has been much or unhappy jarring
in the Cabinet family recently, and each de
partment has suspected the . others of corrup
tion. This Jed to the appointment of cer
tain detectives who lened out and made
known the matters above stated. The de
I positions of the females and others were ta
ken, and most ol tbe prool is, therefore, al
ready prepared for the committee.
All eyes are now turned towards the Rap
idan is expectation of the impending coeilict,
and which wi t commence next wees, a con
flict that will, it is expected, settle ibe des
tiny ol the Republic. General Gram has
eompleted his preparations; the preliminary
arrangements are complete, and he is now
ready. Two hundred and fi'ty thousand men
compose the aimv of tba North; and liom
the best authority, the Rebels will have at
least from one hundred and sixty to one
hundred and ninety thousand troops. Both
sides ate confident, and the coming week
will in all probability rcccrd the bloidiest
and most awiul battle in the bistoty of the
It ill now settled that the Baltimore Con
vention will come off June 7, and the im
pending battle between Giant and Lee is al
most overlooked in the' interest in the Presi
dential struggle. Banks is no more thought
of as a compromise candidate. He is a dead
cock in the pit. -v.
Fremont is becoming daily more 'ormida
ble, though the belief is that Lincoln will be
renominated. The bold stand taken by the
Germans is doing Lincoln more barm than
anything else. . . f
Frank Blair's speech has damaged Chase
very much, and many are looking round for
an entirely new candidate. The candidate
nominated will depend much on what Gen.
Grant may be ablo to do.
The reverses on the Red River and at Ply
mouth, have bad a very dispiriting e fleet on
the Cabinet. Gen. Grant's luck does not
start out welt. There is also a painful ru
mor from Fortress Monroe tbat Little Wash
ington has been captured, and fears are en
tertained that Newbern will tall next. These
revarses have determined General Grant to
brin on tbe struggle for Richmond as soon as
possible. Ibe confluence of the country is
being shaken, both in tbe military and finan
cial power of the Government.
It is understood that Beauregard has charge
of the eastern de'tnece of .Richmond, and is
now busily employed in directing the com
pletion of tho intrenchmenls in that quarer.
Tbe South regards this campaign as deter
mining their late, and the exertions it is
making aia commensurate with tbat idea.

there will be a movement ol the army early

The only mode of determining the fact of

Wsir I'vlit y -Sis End niidAliu
the Ieirttt'tion of Slavery,
W. D. Bickbam, "editor end proprietor"
of the Dayton Journal, makes iu bis paper
of April 27, a furious ocslaught upon a Re
publican U. S. Sitiator Irom Ohio, Hon.
John Sherman. Mr. Bickham begins by
"the exact thing wn'cn wasooneoy uva.
John Sherman, in tbe Unitid States Senate
on tbe 19th tnst., was lo propose an exten
sion of tbe lease of slavery. A proposition
to repeal all Fugitive Slave Laws was pend
ing, when Mr. Sherman moved to amend by
inserting "excepting the act of February
12ih, 1793."
Tbe lollowing paragraph contains tbe cream
of Mr. Bickbam'8 article;
"Mr. Sherman's object in thus opposing
tbe policy of the Government, and tho ascer
tained will of the majority of the people, is
inexplicable. We bad supposed tbat no lact
was more conclusively established than that
slavery was the cause ol the war that the
slaughter ol thousands of brave men and the
expenditure of thonsands of millions ol treas
ure was tbe consequence of it, and that it
bad been decisively dotermined that the
only way to establi.-h peace and Union,
and to restore the authority of the Gov
eminent is to destroy slavery. The
Proclamation of Emancipation, we pre
sumed, contemplated that end ; the Proola
mation of Amnesty, we supposed, looked in
the same direction; tbe resolution adopted
by two thirds pf the members of the United
States Senate Uon John Sherman votiDg
with tbe majority to o menu ihe rederal
Constitution so as to abolish slavery iu i he
Tnited States, we understood to mean tbe
extinction and eradication of the infernal in
stitution which was the cause of the rebel
lion and all our woes."
Mr. Bickhatu edits and publishes an ultra
Abolition sheet, which advoca'es Lincoln's
re election. We notice its utterances for
the purpose of showing lbev:ewsof on Ohio
Lincoln oigan. it teems it at, tn ttsesiima
lion, to oppose the repeal of tha lugitive
slave law, enacted in less than four years af
ter the Fedtral Government went into oper
ation under the present Constitution, is to
"opposo the policy ill tbe Government." It
is clear, then, that the policy ol the Govern
ment under the Administration ol Geoige
Washington was ono thing, and that, undor
tbe Administration of Abraham Lincoln, it
is quite another and a different thing.
Mr. Bickbam is amazed at Mr Sherman's
course, because be (Mr B ) bad supposed it
'conclusively established," that is, in the
minds of all partisans ol the Administration,
John Sherman included, Itat "slavery was
tho cause of the war," and that all the ef
forts of the Government in carrying on 'he
war are to be directed, not to put down rob
elt in arms end te-es-ablifh peace and Union
on the old basis of the Constitution, but "to
destroy slavery." "'his is the ultimate end,
according to the Dayton editor and all the
prominent leaders of Ins party, lor wnton
cut-pallent meu are now in the field, find
others are being called out by the uuuorea
thousand, to be sacrificed that "petsons of
Alricaii descent" may be made free
Not only is Ohio und every other State
under Administration control to be depopu
lated by the loss of the flower of her popu
lation; but, according to thia Abolition wor
programme, the Constitution, which i3 the
life oi the Union, is to be violated, its sa
cred guarantees disregarded, and constitu
tional Government overthrown, in order "to
destroy slavery." The Proclamation of
Emancipation, we are now frankly told,
-'contemplated that end;" the proclamation
of Amnesty "looked in tho same direction,"
and to did tbe resolution to amend the Con.
siitution passed by the Senate, and for which
John Sherman voted.
Mr. Bickham, by expressing the real de
signs ol tbu pany in power, fixes on Mr.
Sherman the brand of inconsistency. Tbe
only difference between the Senator and the
editor is, that the former is the more wily
politician, and want, while he keeps step to
tbe roll of the radical revolutionary drum, to
dupe as many well-meaning persons into tbe
racks as possible, by showing now aad then
a hypocritical pretense o I love for the old
principles and the old ways, when tbe Re
public was united, frea and profperou3.
The Chtisc Lincoln and Blair
Imbroglio IMuhnble Willi

itiel An Incipient llobrtlioii
in llio AdiHinistriition Itank.
Tbe Washington correspondent of tbe
Cincinnati Gazette telegraphs to that paper
under date of April 27 as lollows:
There is much indignation over tbe illegal
act of appointing Frank Blair Major Gener
al without sending his nomination lo the
Senate. Tbe President expressed himself
very much exercised over it, and has been
sending for numerous members and Senators
to consult on the subject. He admits that
this step was without law, but says Blair
had him in a tight place and held him to
his promise, the liouse will push the in
quiry, with the particnlar view of ascertain
ing the date of tho commission Blair holds,
I fit proves to be dated back to the time of
bis engiDal appointment, they will then de
mand bow he came to be legally occupying
a (eat in Congress, while really a Major
General in tho army. If it is dated since
he left Congress, again the Senate will de
mand wby his nomination w as not sent tbem
as tbe Cons'itu ion requires. Meantime tbe
effect of this unprecedented couise iu another
quarter threatens to be most serious, lilair
did absolutely nothing in Congress but ma
lign Secretary Chase. Jiis last speecb was
full of vile remarks involving Mr. Chase's
personal character. Ua tbe heels of this
the Pi esident coolers tbe highest position of
military honor upon him, and even violates
la to do it. Naturally Mr. Chase takes
Ibis as an indorsement of tbe slanders, and
was even since its occurrence on the point
of peremptorily tending his resignation and
demanding tbe fullest investigation. Lead
ing publio meu, Governors Congressmen, &e.
have been dissenting from it in consideration
ef the public interest, and the President is
quite alarmed, and has been explaining to
Mr. Chase's friends that be did not mean
anything by reappointing Blair, ancVthat he
very much disapprove of his speech. So
matters stand up to date. Meanwhile, Mr.
Chase has gone over lo Pbilade'phta fer a
day." ' ,-. i,:-
In the same issue which contains tbe foie
going dispatch, the Gazette has the following
"Pbobablk Resignation or Seoiistat
Cuase Our Washington dispatches indi
cate the probable withdrawal bf Mr. Chase
.from the Cabinet. Under pressing, circum
stances it is difficult to see how be can con
sent lo remain. Tbe principal business of
Frank Blair while in the House was to abuse
the Secretary of tbe .Treasury!, His last
speech was, in this respect, excessively bit
ter. On the heel of this, Mr, Lincoln re
commissioned him as Major General against
the protest of tha friends of the President In
Congress; contrary to usage, aad as is believ
ed, without authority of law. This' is, nat
uratly enough, construed by Mr. Chase as an
indorsement of Mr. Blair s course. - The
President, it is said, disclaims any such in
tenlion, but this can hardly prove satis faoto
ry to the Secretary 61 the Treasury. ,: It it
possible, however, that be may, lo view -ol
the publio interests, be prevailed upon to remain.
The act of Mr. Liocoln in recommiasioniog
Mr. Blair, is an extraordinary one, and it
mazed and mortified the friends of the Ad
mininiration throughout the country."
There is a strung odor of disloyalty in the
shove, especially coming as it doea irom such
en ultra radical Administration organ as
the Quiettt. The quarrel between tha
friends of Lincoln and Chase bids fair to

The' Ohio Statesman says: It will be re
membered that the Western Governors whs
have ot lato been paying their devoirs to
their lge lotd at Washington, at first pro
posed to place at his disposal two hundred
thousand miliiiai-men; but that "Uncle Abra
ham," either thinking the profer an excess
of liberality, or fearing tbat it would raise
expectationa in tbe popular mind which - be
could not and did intend should be fulfilled,
declined to accept so many. The Gover
nors prested the matter, and a compromise
was finally (fleeted, "Old Abe" consenting
to receive a donation ol eight; five thousand
ab!e bodied Western men.
The number being agreed upon, there was
another point to be fettled thr'tetm of ser
vice of the men thus transferred by the Gov
ernors to tbe President. A Washington dis
patch to the "loyal" Cincinnati Gazette, says
ol our weighty Gcvcrcot 'a action in the mat
ter: . .
Governor Brough urgontly proposed offer
ing them for six n ontbs, but some of tbe
other Governots objected. He then urged
four months, to which all the Governors ex
c:pt Morion assented. Governor Morton
objected, on the ground that it might take
men out ol tho State who were needed to
sustain the Government in the home elec
tions. Finally it was agreed to stretch the
time ol teivice a little Let end tbe 'three
months proposed, and nuke it one hundred
1 he Indiana Governor has an eye single
to tbe "main cbatice" for himself and his
political party. It is evident tbat be judged
it ol more impoitance that bis party ebonld
catry the home elections than tbat the war
should bo ended by any decisive movements
in the field. This reason ol Governor Mor
ton's gives color to the suspicion entertained
ty many, tbat tbe whole thing is an elec
tioneering trick to establish a sort of manu-
lactory ol Abolition voters.
Governor Brough seems to have thought

But if I
thought necessary by "tha powers that be,"
the term may le tx cr-dtd to a hundred
more, or to a skoner or limgor peii d. The
Gazette, iu which the dispatch referred to in
this article, appears, thus speaks of the opt
erations ot the bundled day's call:
"The one hundred days call is likely to
operate vary seriously on the (araiurs. Sev
eral companies ol tbe National Guaid in
this county ate composed of furmerx, who
finding it almost an iuipossidliity to gtt
farm help or substitutes, have t.o alternative
except to go, and leave corn planting lor an
other year. This state of things is not con
ficd to this county." -
How War- Pestilence ist tfo.ier ri
led The Shoddy Flagiio.
The New York IkraU, of a recent dte
had an article calling attc-n ion to lha nu
merous diseases, tvith which the bud is
now afilicted, and invsstinntes the way in
which they are generatad. Anion' other
suggestions, it says:
Can it ba that a shoddy plague is creep
ing stealthily into out midil? souio un
known terror, which medical science has not
contemplated or provided for; a combina
tion of disseases, originating Irom a cause
hitherto not existing in this country; the
ptisonoftho hospitals and 'he battlefield,
conveyed in tbe form of shoddy flannels and
shoddy muslin gooda?
We believe tbore is no doubt tbat the ma
terials of which thesj articles are composed
come mainly from these sources. We have
it on the authority of one of tho managers ol
a prominent shoddy factory in Pennsylvania
that the shiits, blankets, and even the ban
dages, of the wounded, dtad and diseased,
both iu Ihe field and in the hospitals, are re
ceived there actually moist with blood and
corruption, and in this state are torn into
shreds in the machines, and manufactured
into shoddy flannels, blankets and cotton ma
terial. If this be true, then the shoddy man
u'aoturers outvie in their hideons but profit
able trade, the exultation of the wretch
Cbuwles in his subterranean orgies, as Ains
worth desciibcs him, during the plague ot

Sucb material infected as it must be with
the virus of all kinds of disease small-pox
of course included for we must not suppose
that the harpies who follow this line ol busi
cess are at all scrupulous must fearfully af
fect the system ot those who wear them, be
came the natural heat of tho body will ne
cessarily extract the poison. We trust tbat
tbe mysterious diseases which now afflict the
community may be traceable to some lef s hor
rible and inhuman caute; but we trust also
that the medical faculty will diligently ini
vesiigate the matter, for it is one of a very
grave aod startling character.
