Governor of Tennessee has seised upon
property in the hands of tbs Surveyor of

It is customary among the great powers

Wherever there is a fair probability that
the sovereign or nation from whom the
payment is exacted is too weak to make
effectual resistance to the demand. And
oa the same principle, the United States
extorted a prodigious compensation fot
the trouble and expense of conquering
Mexico. Why., then may not the loyal

COL. BVBRUA&
Wo yesterday made occasion to speak of
pt* qualifications of General McClellan,
who has been designated to the
; armies of the Northwest.
There Is another officer who deserves a
i nstating notice;—we allude to Col A. K.
Burnside of the Bhede Island regiment.
- The Pr~*s has teemed with enoostiumt on
lisclplinOr equipment and soldiery bear
f this regiment;-and (he concurrent

1 aos a fctiter mustered into tfafparr
\.-'Jbw.fi buiterw 'of the
Jamot’a rifled cannon; and if it does hot
make a good report of itself, ws are mis
taken. The Colonel of this celebrated regi
ment is A. E. Burnside, who is well known
to many of our citizens. For two years,
he was Cashier of the Land Department of
the Illinois Central Railroad Company, and
was subsequently transferred to the trea
surerahlp at Now Yhrk. He is a naftre <jf.
Indiana, had a graduate of West Point;
and daring the Mexican war, rendered im
portant sendees to the company, as Col
Si*ham W can testify. Haying
married in Rhode Island, with commenda
ble gallantry he transferred his allegiance
to Little Rhody. When the war broke
out he was prompt in tendering his services
to his adopted State, and was appointed
Colonel of the First Regiment, with Gov.
Sprague as Commander-in-Chief.
The Btete was among the first to
to the proclamation of the Preal^
when Colßutnaide
York to inform how long a tint® be
required to ready, he responded, “ one
Qimcta p As the regiment, on board the
‘Qoat&aeoalcas, at New York, were abont
starting for Washington, n call was made
by the crowdfor the officers. Gov. Sprague
promptly responded. Col. Burnside held
back until their vociferations became deaf
ening, when he appeared on deck, and ex
cused himself by slaying that he would
make a speech when they returned; and
we predict that the gallant Colonel wiH
speak in a manner worth listening to, when
the Rhode Island regiment does return.
Wilkes, in the last Spirit of the Times,
graphically describes the trip of the New
YorkTht in company with the Rhode Island
regiment to Washington; how in steam
ing past the mouth of the Potomac WJ ere
it was apprehended the rebels had erected
batteries, the CoaUaeoakos placed her prow
the stern of the Harriet Lane, that
- ig it be the first to run the gauntlet;
Annapolis the “.snoring valor" of
Rhode Island occupied the professors’
houses, like sardines stowed away in boxes;
and how on the dreary march to Washing
ton, they manoeuvered to lead, that
might be tee first to the rebel
Scouts, and the flr»* to report themselves
to tee Copvhander-in-ChleC Burnside ap
pears everywhere, like a pervading spirit.
We shall watch the movements of this
regiment with much interest. We predict
that they will come out of this war, cover
ed all over with glory; and that result will
be largely due to the munificence of Gov.
Sprague, and the soldiery qualities of CoL
A. E. Burnside.
Treason.
The proper idea of treason seems to have
faded out in tee publle mind. Our revolu
tionary fathers placed it upon an equality with
murder, and provided a more secure punish
ment for it, adding confiscation of property to
death. The law-givers of all ages and nations
have had tee same idea of it And yet, in our
country, treason is openly avowed by persons
of all ranks and professions, even clergymen;
nor do they hesitate publicly to commit overt
acts; and even old and moderate men like
Crittenden, Bell and others, do not hesitate to
counsel opposition to tee Government, if It
undertakes to put down treason.
-This present treason has already ruined,
financially, hundreds of thousands of inno
cent and worthy men, —it will leave upep ' t * ne
country an enormous tax to be in future
years, and it win probacy destroy the lives of
thousands of citizens. In the name of
tnls treason go unpunished?
it be possible that tec Government can
heal it with any, wishy washy complacency ?
It is absolnt • ly essential to the future welfare
of tee country that it be so treated now, as
forever hereafter to be feared and loathed. As
no country before was ever afflicted with such
base, extensive, impudent, destructive and ut
terly causeless treason; to tee punishment
should be uommersurate and coextensive
with the crime. And as our country, differing
with other countries, and for tee greater pro
tection of liberty, has made treason to consist
In the overt act only, when the overt act does
come, It surely ought to be nipped in the
bud—it ought to be scotched and cauterized
so that it will never spring up again in tee
same plaee. The leading traitors in each se
ceding State should be hung,* the property of
all traitors should be confiscated. Nothing
less than this will satisfy the imperative de
mands of justice. This policy ehould be ear
ly proclaimed by tee Government, teat those
not already committed Qay be duly warned.

137“ The New York Conner and Enquirer
argues that there is great danger that the
Southern army now assembling at Harper’s
Ferry, may make a dash at Philadelphia rather
than at Washington. From the evident move
ment of the Government, we may suspect that
there are ojfidal people at Washington who
share .that opinion. ■
HTDlckinion, the Baltimore steam-gun man,
of whom we have lately heard so much, turns
out to be a citizen of Cleveland, who sold his
patent to a Baltimore firm, and went down to
that city to put a machine in operation. The

hT Whai the first excitement of the war
occurred, Cincinnati promptly and patriotic

The speedy result was an Immediate rise in
the prise of provisions at various points
south. Being unable to obtain them from the
free States of the west, the south drew upon'
Kentucky, and at once there occurred an
alarm at Louisville lest the steady drain should
exhaust the supply ih that market Had this,
policy been carried out fully along the Ohio
river, i£ would have precipitated a crisis. Bat

with the needed supplies, and Cincinnati, see

Omom-'These, so far as their attain
ments and science are concerned, may be
considered as equal—all having been edu
cated at West Point. The Government, bow?

ploy as the,rebels have.
Soldiers*—The Northern soldier has by
.nature’a st&oger aadjaorifefntfy constitution

employment, Ids muscles are more developed,
and his mind betterdisciplined. The South

and will contain fur less intelligence than the
Northern.

Besides, the Northerner is more intelligent,
more capable of long application, and, more
tractable and docile than tee Southerner.

scant supply of materials which they now
have on hand, must be: greatly deficient in
boots and shoes, uniforms, blankets, tents,

sidered as perfectly worthless in this war. Of
the improved Minis rifles manufactured by
the vernment, only abont one half of the
number went to tee Southern States. There
is no manufacturer of small arms to any exr
tent iu the ela?^ 1 States. The North'now has
the arms made at the Government mor y
at Springfield, and made by Colt and
Sharpe at Hartford, and other extensive pri
vate manufacturers. It has also sent large or
ders for teese arms to England mid France, 1
which it has the means to pay for, and no em
bargo to prevent its receiving them. • It is
within bounds to say, that in the course of
three months the "Norte will have five times
the number of Minie rifles, which the South
will have. 'lt will hare an equal superiority
in small arms. Several regiments went from
New York in which each private had either
one or a pair of Colt’s Revolvers. There Is
no such instance in tee rebel artny. The pow
der mills in Maryland and Delaware will be
controlled by the Government., There are
powder mills In Kentucky, but teat State will
require all that they can make. We are not
aware shat there are any other powder mills
in any of tee slave States. Where, will they
get powder? ‘ There is nolead found South
of Missouri. It the embargo ils complete at
Cairo, whets will they get lead ? It is said
that tee rebels are short of’percussion caps,
and that they have no means of makltg them.
In addition to these there are cannon balls of
all varieties, bomb shells, cartridges for fffiss
and cannon, Cartridge boxes, kr&peacks, can
teens, ammunition wsgons, and various other
articles- Which the North his; facilities for
making, and tee. South has not There are

Kentucky and Missouri may be considered as

them. The.tame may he arid of Western
Virginia and Eastern Tttmesaee. There is
also a strong under current of Union senti
ment in all of tee Slave States, while the
North is united for the Government as one
man- Hence we think tee effective rebels
cannot he estimated at oyer five millions.
There are four million of Slaves In the South,
nearly all of whom are In the rebellious States
and communities, for slavery and rebellion go
hand in hand. We think this a source cf
weakness, more than equal to tee want of a
million of men. Hence, considering the re
bels as equivalent in numbers to four millions
of untrammeled whites, the north exceeds
teem in numbers almost five times.
Tiusspobtatiox—-All of the Northern
State* are perfectly intersected with railroads,
far more so than the Southern flt&tee. The
poor States Tex\s and Florida,
hare al). The' railroads of the
father Slave States mostly lead t&£bris which
will he blockaded. Hence the North can much
more cheaply concentrate troopa within her
borders than can the South. Troops can be
moved from Boston, Providence, Oonhecticnt,
New York and Philadelphia, bj wa’er, to Vir
ginia In a day—ln less'time tnan Virginia can
move her troops twenty five miles. Indeed,
the Government cm send troops and muni
tions of war to Fort Pickens more cheaply
than the rebels can.' :
■ld. conclusion theta, If the Government has
five times as many men at the rebels-—it they
are more robust, more intelligent, better
drilled, equipped, armed, provisioned and
paid,andhave a greater number of experienced
officers, and also -have • very-superior facilities
for transportation; and. if, on the contrary,
the rebel army is composed, of, men unaccus
tomed to regular employment, impatient of
command, improvident, and msny of them
dissipated in their habits, and these ay badly
provisioned, clothed and armed, and poorly
supplied with camp equipage, and probably
never paid at all, it must soon become demor
alized; and if the rebel country is impover

own borders, and the annihilation of its trade
by the embargo, it is apparent that the rebals

Editors Chicago Tribune:
Having just teen your paper of Monday,
13th lost., in which your editorial throws some
reflections upon CoL Williams and Col. Wood
the Commissary And Quartermaster Generals
or this State, permit me,-who, perhaps of all
others,havehada betteropportnaity to observe
the operations oTtheir different departments,
to aay, that the emergency that so suddenly
forced their departments into extended and
unusual oper itions, also called upon those of
ficers to select as their assistants,, such men
as they knew were best fitted for their posi
tions, and nearest within th elr reach. Was it
not .astucsl, that they should -seleetrthose
had been most familiarly acquain
ted wlthand whose services they ,could imme
diately commifid?
As far a$ Captains Bradford, Webber, Owen
and Armstrong are concerned, I can bear
cheerful and willing testimony to their effi
ciency In their several departments. £do not
think that among the seven thousand and
over, encamped-nt Springfield, that yon will
find a man who will not cordially endorse me
In my approval of the conduct of the officers
named, and my only wonder is, that in so
short a time men coaid have been selected
who would have given So universal satisfac
tion. Tneir dull s were arduous and inces
sant and often annoying, but were always per
formed with the utmost willingness and good
nature.
As to ths other bfflsen mentioned, I can
only say, that as fir es my duties brought me
in contact' with them, I have toudd them wil
ling and competent to perform the business
of their sepante' departments.
It is with others than the heads of the de
partments yon mention, that Chicago should
find fault. Haatiily jnm%^

Captain Marsh is mistaken. The Tbibusb

It la said a fall regiment came in last night,
but of thle I have no evidence, i>nd much
dohbt.,; The fact is, onr troops are sot .com*
ingr'bn fhst enough. All accounts cgreelhat
we have men ready and eager by the thousands
to rush to tbe war wherever it bfc, but they hre
detained for some reason, supposed to be good
of course,, with Gen. Ecott at tbe head of
things. Bit account* from the South, both
from their papers and from travelers, arriving

are vaslly.more troops in Virginia,

thing it has been represented to be in Us lo

than 28,000 troops, all told', In this city, with
some 5 000 at Annapolis, and 2,000 at the

may be assured that there are dogs there, and
if the scales of war were poised, many a sword

. The burial of the poor soldier to-day was
very sad and impressive. As they returned
from the grave the troops of the other regi-'
ments stood uncovered as the companies ot
the Metropolitans, to which Howard belonged,
passed—the band plajing meanwhile a dirge.
Poor fellow, he fell before his time—but he
had what many a soldier fails to get, an indl/
vidnaV burial, and a grave, which may be
marked with his name.
The Rhode Island Regiment are going into

WaßflnsdTox, May 9, 1861.
Great interest is felt as to the composition
of CoU PicntisS, and I have been asked if that
charminr answer reported of his as to Gen.
Pillow, was a true index of his mettle. Of
course I knew “Ben” well enough to answer
aye. There was a gentleman jast m fromCriro
to-day, telling a crowd that they were W(X>
strong—plenty of cannon—provisions, Ac.,
when he was lately there—though they were
expecting an attaclc from Memphis. When he
passed down to Memphis they were expsc;lng
an attack there from Cairo. lam not certain
bnt this is to be, all around a cat’s fight, where
each will look the other in the face at a dis
tance, with only the categorical demonstra
tions of great war audfory; but I more be
lieve that onr troops will bo soon bidden to
go on against the armed foe. This opinion
prevails here, and the troops are eager for it.
Indeed it begins to be felt that they are, If not
“spoiling for a fight,” yit in a* much danger
of wastiog away, as if m a conflict. Tnere is
the enervating and dissipating tendency ,ol
camping in a large and gay city—accidents ibo
are taking off some soldiers every day, «nd in
some sheer carelessness in the use of
arms. Yesterday one of the N. Y. 7th Regi
ment shot himself through tbe head, and tue
‘ day before one of the Massachusetts 6**
tnmg at the Relay House near Balti
more. To-day one of the Rhode Island boys
took a pietol from another, on the steps of tire
Pat nt Office, jest zsspme fear hundred clerks
were entering at 9 o'clock, and os many more
soldiers standing around,- and u hang" it went,
within an inch of the legs of one of the clerks.
It is better to have the rebels shooting amor g
the people here, thin to die by our friend*. In,
Europe they have learned to manage such,
things better, where, as a friend of mine who
was three times wounded in the German rev
: olntibn of *4B, says they .never keep their guns
capped until needed.
Thecamp-llfe of the Seventh New York and
the Sixty-ninth continue to be visited by
thousands—this evening as many as five hun
dred carriages were standieg around the camp
of the Seventh on Fourteenth street, a mile and
a half-North. On the avenue this evening',
there was a general movement of swords,
epaulettes, and ooots well blacked, towards the
President’s house, where he holds «levee for
officers of the army andhaVy only. Occasion
ally a red coat appears, which indicates that
the music Is to be done by the Marine Band.
The cynosure of all eyes at the levee—after
old Abe—will be M.‘jor Anderson, who is the
hero of the city just now. I noticed to-day, a
soldier watching an omnibus Intently. Soon
he beckoned to his comrades and said 44 boys,
come on, every one of yon, Major Anderson
is in that ’Dus”—and they rushed like an inva
ding army, with heads uncovered, and caps
swinging, giving three cheers. The Major’s
promotion is well liked—and his aopointment
to tbe command of the Kentucky Brigade
very popular.
From tbe first of this gathering of troops,
there has been the cold shoulder turned to the
brave boys who have left homes they love fall
well, 4 to come and save the homes here, where
all too little sympathy is shown them—where'
every chancels seized, with the rapacity of a
harpey, to make 44 war prices ” on from the
solaiera—and where not any public vote of the
city' has been made awarding money—pro
visions or quarters to the gathering regiments
here. Martial law is'clamorously demanded
by many of onr kind of folks—when these
snobs of an effete aristocracy will find their
occupation gone—and not they themselves
may nave to step up to the captain’s office and
settle for some, of their malfeasance and non
ieasanee.
Tub terror that has been rather gratuitously
displayed on account of the Zoiuves, is dying
away. The regiment are ridding themselves
of the lawless element tuat came, with some
thirty of their number who were not really Axe
men, but interlopers. To-day I heard a soldier
eay to two of the “Lambs,” “come in and take
something.” But they passed by the tempta
tion, saying, “Our boys have a bad enough
name now, and we most bring it up again.”
Thera is much real want among some
of the troops, many of whom came—as the
first troops from Pennsylvania—right from
their work to save Washington, determined
to be in before th* death. An effort is mak
ing: to get clothes for aucaasneedthtm. One
good citizen told me to d*y that several sol
diers had been to Ms hardware store to sell
their pistols to get money to bay provision!.
These are extreme cases—incident to the
haste of the troops in leaving, and the great
difficulty of having every thing, woik just
right at first in such an army, so lately called
here. There is, too, an evident rise of many
things here In the stores and markets. Even
the newspapers have risen to war prices—
doubling their recent rates in some cases. An
evidence of want in a New Jersey soldier was
forcibly impressed on me this noon—when he
came fearlessly up, and how furiously every
tobacco chewer will Imagine, and said “please
give me three cents to buy a plug ot tobacco
with lam out of money and they don’t give
us any.” Of course, though we do not chew,
but eschew I gave him the needfnL Nest to
sailors, soldiers are free with their money,
and it is the easiest thing In the world as ma
ny here will find to get oat of pocket There
is a funny side to the scenes here as well as a
most serious one.
The serious side of (he war movement is
. felt, we have no doubt, \xy every soldier at
times, and by every one who views all this
pomp and circumstance of death dealing mus
kets, rifles, pistols, knives, and the rifled can
non, and remember® that the enemy have just
such. It would be curious to know how many
of who have now generally enlisted for
the war, made their wilts before they left home,
or since one of the Massachusetts Regiment*
has three hundred professors of religfojn bjkj
signs are up in the streets giving notice of
prayer meetings for soldiers, and each meet
ings are being neld at some of the barracks by'
the occupants themselves. Though a jolly
set, they must have serious thoughts, as who"
hae not for them, when they are passing by in
solid columns, going on to meet the foe. And
yet, it was lotmd that at Solferino itself.only'
one In some 800 was wounded, and only one
in over 3,000 was tilled, A clergyman of my
acquaintance told.same troops, leaving the
north, that there wu> last chance cf their dy

r -fFrom the Xouiavijle Journal.] ; -
The* spirit of secession . appears to have
reached its culminating point in „
-cession-of Tenneesp* . .• f"
"haa as tt - 1 ‘ « vertMnly the fell spirit
_ ,«■ reached no higher point of outran
gfefttts tyranny. The whole of the late pro
ceeding in Tennessee has been as gross an out
rage as ever was perpetrated, by the worst ty
• rant of ail the earth.' The whole secession
■movement oh the part of the Legislature of
that State has been lawless, violent, and tn
mnltuous. The- pretence of . submitting the
ordinance of accession to the vote of the peo
ple of the State after placing her whole; muita
ry power and resources at the disposal and un
der the command bfthe Confederate States,
without any authority from the people, is as
bitter and insolent a moeker of popular rights
,aiathe.human m:nd could invent. How the
people can have so fdh controlled 1 theihselves
or been controlled by the grim shadow of
some vague fear as not to rise up. in their
wrath, break open the the doors of the Legis
lature in its secret session, and pitch the offen
ding ' members of that body from the summit
cftuecapltol orfrbm the bluff* of the Cum
berland river, we are scarcely able to compre
hend. : ’
'There is to be the show, the empty show, of
a popular rote upon the Tennessee ordinance
ef secession—the poor snow of & vote whether
Tennessee shall secede or not when the. whole
military resources of the State have been given
into the hands of the Southern Confederacy
and accepted by that Confederacy 1 And lest
a,conslderable vote, even in such an extraor
dinary and anomalous case, might he given
against secession; the known mends of the
Union, and even men merely suspected of be
ing friends r>f the Union, are hunted oat and
driven by or by actual violence from
the State. The slightest remonstrance against
secession is regarded and punished as a crime.
An imprudent word from a man’s mouth puts
his neck In deadly peril. The ablest ipen of
Tennessee, men whose names are pronounced
with high praise throughout the nation, such
men as Johnson and Nelson, are warned to
make no public speeches- lest their: lives
should nay the penalty. In the meantime,
such men as John Bell end Gustavos A. Henry
and the E wings and others whose names it
were painful to speak, behd low before the
storm of anarchy and jacobism, and, laying
their lips in the polluted aud polluting dost,
humbly give in their adhesion to the fortunes
of the fierce and wildly careering faction. As
for the Turn eases press, excepting the loyal
and heroic Brownlow, the best poftion ofjt Is
dumb, and the rest applauds. We have seen;
editors escaping from that State because they
could not stay and speik their minds without
the sacrifice of their lives, and the circulation
of papers from abroad that boldly Fpeak the
truth is prohibited. Even in Nashville, where
the Louisville Juitrauil has for years had .thou
sands and thousands of. warm and devoted
friends, It has been recently , interdicted and
banned by an unresisted mohj though Heaven
and mankind cau bear us witness that it was
never conducted with deeper and loftier devo
tion to the truth aud the right than it is at
this day, * •
‘As illustrative’of the character of the tyran
ny established over souls in Tennessee, we
may mention one circumstance out of the
thousands which the Tennssee papers would
not dare to menUdn. One of the first gentle
men in oar city, a substantial m&n whose
word nose would question, was recently in
that State on business. He repeated to us
yesterday a .conversation that he he'd with a
native Tennesseean, a Union mas, who depre
cated secession «e a deplorable blunder and a
terrible crime. The two gentlemen were alone
jq a large room, no other person being probar
bly within a half mile of them, yet the Ten
neast e in lowered hla voice almcet to a whisper
ae if pe fancied the very walls had ears to hear
and tongue to repeat. “Lately,” said he,
«I thought I was worth eight or ten thousand
dollars; now I am worth nothing. I owe a
sum of money, and I carefully laid by every
dollar in my power for the purpose of meeting
my obligations aud saving my property; but all
that I laid by. has been taken from me. They
have raised military companies in my neigh
borhood, And, although tny opinions were
known, they levied.upon me, as they did upon
others, whatever they pleased, and I had to
furnish the required amount or be spotted and
persecuted—probably driven out of the State
as au Abolitionist” Any dozon, or even half
dozen, Secessionists in any part of Tennessee
can band themselves together at pleasure, as
thousands of dozens and naif dozens are doing,
and levy the most oppressive and enormous,
black mail for secession purposes upon seces
sionists and Union men alike, marking each
man’s tax opposite his name upon a piece of
paper, and tuen presenting the paper with the
foot-pad command of stand and deliver I And
from the authority of the relentless and re
morseless robbery there is no appeal; no
power exists to which the sufferers can sue
cessfully turn for protection or redress. A
giant despotism, subdivided into countless
pet'y despotisms, covers the land with a
ebauow deadlier to life than the shadow of
Java’s poison-tree.
We sincerely mourn for Tennessee. She has
fallen from the shining orbit in which she so
gloriously moved. Sue has myriads of good
men and patriots within her borders, but their
voices are hushed as with the stifling sir of a
topsb. Let us: of Kentucky taka solemn
warning from her most unhappy example.
Agencies precisely similar to those that have
wrought r suca a : fearful and disastrous work
in Tennessee are busy day and night in Ken
tucky. A conspiracy here to establish such a
reign of terror as prevails there is on foot.
The conspirators art moving stealthily In all
directions, holding secret and midnight con
sultations, digesting their evil and uold ma
chlnationa, iftyfetag to arm all their banded
fodowers from hesa to foot at the expense of
the B;ate and to disarm all true and loyal men,
-and assuredly, if they succeed in their accurs
ed design, even the vast and overwhelming
strength’of the Union party of Kentucky, so
strikingly exhibited in our recent election, will
not avail to hold the State back from the deep,
biaek gulf .of political, moral and physical
perdition into-.which Tennessee has been
madly plunged. • •
' There are, no doubt, as many bfavft and no
ble spirits in Tennessee in proportion to popu
lation as of any Stats of the thirty four, but
they have - been miserably tricked, duped,
cheated, swindled, betrayed, manacled, rob
bed of their rights and liberties. Be warned
in time, oh brothers of Kentucky, or the
warning will ccme to you iso late.
Vise Union Spirit In Tennessee*
The Evansville (lad ) Journal has informa
tion from a Tennessee gentleman that the Un
ion feeling in Nashville, though suppressed,
Is still alive, and acting in a way very likely to
prove exceedingly embarrassing to the trai
tors hereafter;
Oar informant tells us, the Union men are
tanfuLy in organizing military eompaniety to get
together; and when the; are arrayed in batile
under the Confederate flag and agains; the
Stan and Btripea, they will quickly demon
strate to which flag they owe allegiance. Not
only haVe the. Union men an understanding
among themselves, bat they have concealed the
State arau which had hitherto been in their
possession, ao (bat Gov. Hama la unable to
get poeaee&ion of them for the purpose of us
ing them against the Federal Government
He Bays he know* of a great many magnificent
Miaio -rifles, buried in thecdUn <fstrong Union
men, and there they will be likely to remain
until they can be used In the manner design
ed by the General Government when it had
them manufactured.
The negroes, he tell* us, are restless and dis
affected. The masters, are foolishly Instruct
ing many of their slaves in the use of anus,
and drilling them daily. Tet the negroes,
when they get together, by significant looks
and word*, indicate that the drilling is likely
to profit their masters but little. If HoaiiUtee
should ever be carried into Tennessee, the
suppression of negro insurrection will not be
the mast of her troubles.

OUR LOST WAR VESSELS.
Flan fbr Recovering the T'sssli Sank
at the Gosport Aavy Yard.
CoL Hanpt, the distlngnished engineer and
contractor for building the Hoosac Tunnel,
has made proposals to the War Department
for raising the sunken vessels at the Gosport
Navy Yard. He proposes to furnish compe
tent ment to perform the task at a reasonable
compensation, and to superintend and give di
rection to the engineering department in per
son, in charge. All beyond this that he stipu
lates is that the government sbalifnrnish.a
sufficient force to protect the men in their
operations. He informs ns that the wrk son
U done in sixty days The general plm of the
operation is by means of divers, who are to
cover the holes with canvas, and where the
portions are horned to insert timbers to sup
port the canvas, and to eject the water by
rheana- of pumps, worked by common loco
motives.
Col. Hanpt also proposes another plan, by
way of suggestion to the government This
is to place powerful locomotive engines in the
bottom.' of sailing ships for the purpose of
propulsion, and by the process which he pro
poses, an additional speed of five miles will
be gained, the whole machinery to be arranged
so as to leave no part exposed. The principle
is, by means of pnmps, to force a body of
water from the bows of the ship to the stem.
A eor.janctivo advantage will be, In case shot
take effect under the water line, the lint
valves may be closed, and the water which
comes in through the shot holes can be eject
ed, thus conver ting tbe means of destruction
into that of service. We think the plan high
ly feasible. .
Mr- Russell’s Aids.
A dispatch kindly seat from New Orleans to
the New York press, relates that:
“Mr. Rnasell, the correspondent of tbe Lon
don Times, left hers last night, it is safel, folly
convinced of the permanency of the military
resources of the government of the Confed
erate Sates.”
Doubtless Mr. Hassell is under obligations
to the mutineers whose pleasantly endeavor
to save him the trouble of expressing his own
o'pln.Ohs. This' last .Confederate dodge re
minds ns of an old Tanked captain, who, it is
said, was the first to enter the port of Liver
pool with the Stars and Stripes fifing, at the
close of the Revolutionary war. Gauing on
his consignee, he found that gentleman pleas
ant, but almost unintelligible by reason of a
defect in his speech. He stuttered. His
clerks gathered round him to see the Yankee,
and as the merchant vainly endeavored to
make himself understood, the captain at lost
turned to the book keeper and said, “ What
does yonr master say.”
Now the book keeper was a wit, such as the
editor of the Richmond Enquirer and. the As
sociated Press correspondent at New Orleans
are, and being this kind of a wit. and naturally
despising the “rascally Yankee,” ha determin
ed to make game of him and replied, “He
wants to know why Balaam’s ass spoke.’*
Said the Yankee, “Balaam was a stuttering
man and bis ass spoke fer him.”— JlT. Y. Etc.

Wlafleld Scott—Honor to the Groat
Veteran,
[From the Milwaukee Wlaconstn.]
In the present terrible crisis in our national
existence, the minds of the people turn with
ro small anxiety to the views and policy of
Gen, Scott, not only because he is Commander
of the Army of the Republic, but because he is
a Virginlao. Iu this hour of trio], so many cf
the sdns of the Old Dominion have evinced
treachery so unparalleled in the history of
civilized nations, that there has bean some
fear that Gen. Scott would hesitate to invade
the soil of his native State. It is manifest that
if Gen. Scott should fall the country iu thin
crisis, the war would be long and bitter; but
with the loyalty of this great chieftain and pa
cificator, and with the immense resources at
his command, the war can be rendered short
and decisive. Therefore, we, as thousands of
others, feel that the fate of onr country in ho
small measure rests in the bands of Its great
Captain. He is to be onr Washington in this
second revolution. At the age of 75, he is as
active and vigorous In the service of his coun
try as he was m the prime of his manhood, and
he it H‘WBo--fs eipected : to lead our graft'd
army, to a triumphant-victory over the foulest.
treason and the most extensive conspiracy a
government ever had to encounter.
A friend In New York who is so situated as
to enjoy the confidence of onr public men,
writes os upon this point, and we know the
people will receive with pleasure whatever
confirms the confidence of the nation in the
heroic the stainless patriotism, and
profound sagacity of Lieut, General Wekfixld
Scott:
“Although the people felt that the safety of
the Capitol and the Government* depended si
moat entirely upon the efforts of Gen. Soott,
yet not a leading article in any journal had I
seen, which gave him sufficient credit for the
work, he was doing. 1 fatow that, until very
recently, nothing has been done by the Gov
ernment with the vigor he advised.. It i« not
just that ibis old Nestor of the Eepublic
should not have, among the loyal peopi6 L the
full award due to patriotism and seal Wm.
.Seward’s red tape diplomatic system has been
tried and utterly failed, and even now there is
toe much leniency shown to the false and
really rebel States of Maryland, Kentucky and
Tennessee. It la time for the West to speak
loud enough to be hearu at Washington, in a
tone not to be misunderstood, tbat those
States that do not furnish the quota of men
and arms for the government, are in a state of
rebellion, and must be treated as such. If the
rulers will not maintain this Government, the'
people who made it should do It for them.”
Dealgzu Against a Connecticut Fort.
The New Eaten (Cohn.) JhOad&tm says
The garrison at Port Trumbull, Lon
don, was alarmed on Wednesday night,. near
midnight, by the sound of a musket shot
from one of the sentinels. Corporal Smith;
of the guard, at once turned out his command
and proceeded to the guard post from which
the alarm Was given. The guard at the wharf
reported having seen a row boat, containing
several men, approaching cautiously along the
shore toward the wharf^which he challenged
three times, then, not having received any re*
spouse, fired. The boat was hastily put about
and pulled into the river, where the guard
lost view of it in the dorknessa. This is the
third time, says the that boats have
been teen in the night, moving about the
works In a suspicious manner. The parties
run a most uncomfortable risk, with precious
little prospect of maktoy anything by such
ventures.

At a meeting at Knoxville, of which Par
ton Brownlow was Secretary, the following
resolution was adopted:
Beeohed, • hat our State Senators andßep
resentatlves in the Legislature, now about to
convene at Nashville, are hereby instructed to
use every lawful and honorable effort to pre

Governor Magoffin haa. neglected, her ay*
to preserve a copy of his dispatch in mqlv to
the requisition made upon him by the Jeff
Davis Government, for a regiment of troops to
be established at Harper 5 * Fmy, He refused
the application, according to his own accoun>
but a regiment of Kentuckian* are at Harper%
Ferry I It is plain that Magoffin knows very
well the words of bis dispatch to the Confed
erate Secretary of War. At any rate, it would
be found filed at the telegraph office, with the
rest of the dispatches. The Governor dare
not allow the country to see the dispatch,lt
may come out yet.— Cincinnati Commercial.

popular ditty “Fm afloat, I’m afloat,” at the

“Friend, I cannot conscientiously allow

resumed, “Kow thee can sing ‘l’m, afloat’ with

And the Q aker went on bis way with the
benevolent smile on his phiz of a men who
