THE NEWS.
Thcnews isliglit,but important Hooker
succeeds Burnside. • Seymour, 'Wood &
Co.didnotsucceed in Albany. TJie French
have battered into silence a little Mexican
fort at Acapulco. The intelligence from
Bosecrans’ army is interesting and varied
but of no considerable moment
In Congress, yesterday,theHouse passed
the Treasury BUI, as given elsewhere. In
the Senate, the bill passed diverting §IOO,-
UOO of the Indian unpaid annuities to the
relief of sufferers by the late Indian out
rages in Minnesota.
Galveston seems a place ofrh -omen to
our forces. An unknown, war vcssel*be
lievcd to be the pirate Alabama, is hailed
by an unhappy transport boosted into a
gunboat, answers the hail,with a falsehood
by which we are really inclined to believe
it was Semmcs, and then follows up the lie
with a broadside, which rinks the Hatteras
in a twinkling.
TUUfBESVLTIN NEW YOBS.
Union men everywhere will rejoice at
the election of Mr. CaDicott as Speaker of
the House of Representatives, and their
satisfaction will be precisely in proportion
to the closeness with which they hare
watched the means taken to defeat him.
The disgraceful importation of Fernando
"Wood’s bullies and roughs to fill the lob
bies, and menace the House, and espe
cially Mr. Callicolt, with bodily injury;
the infamy of Gov. Seymour who saw no
way to protect the House until it should
be organized and officially ask him for
protection; were among the tokens of the
spirit with which the Northern allies of
treason arc prepared to band,together for
the embarrassment of the Government, and
in aid of the rebels. .
The credit of the Empire State is re
deemed. Unionism has triumphed, defeat
ed the wiles and disappointed the plottings
against loyalty. Mr. Callicott was a War
Democrat and the vlctoiy is the result ofa
compromise between Republicans and
men of bis stamp. By this result the Cop
perheads fail in their coveted scheme of de
feating the Joint Convention to elect aSen
atoron February Bd, a trick which would
have manifestly carried had the organiza-y
tion of the House been staved off, This
secures the continued representation ofthe
War spirit of New York by a full delega
tion in the United States Senate, and so
doubtless re-elects Hon. Preston King.
In all other ways will the nohle Empire
State defeat the hopes of the knaves who
who arc hoping to hang her defection to
the Union cause in the interests
and wishes of Seymour, Wood & Co. She
will be true to the Union and imfiinpiiinor
in her support of all means to crash out
rebellion. She will tom to confusion the
Impudent pledges of her home trait
ors, and those abroad who seek to take
their cue from them. When Dr. N. S.
Davis, a few nights ago, at the Biyan Hall
meeting, thanked God that so many thou
sand New York troops were soon to go
home and would riot be replaced in the
Federal army, he simply slandered New
York, and only wrote himself down afresh
os what may be termed the Medical Direc
tor of the Chicago Copperheads. New
York is right, she may be slandered, but
she cannot be swerved from the line of
loyalty. '
A FIGHTING GENEBih.
The nomination of fighting Jo. Hooker
to the command of the Army of the Poto
mac, viee Burnside, resigned, willbethe oc
casion for general rej Dicing wherever Gene,
m! Hooker is known. We believe him to
be a hcad-and-shonlders taller than any
other man upon whom the command could
by any probability be conferred. We know
thathehsis the confidence and admiration
of the rank and file of the army; that he
enjoys the respect and esteem of the Presi
dent ; and, what is not less, that he has un
bounded belief in his capability for great
things. Wherever he has been placed
since the war began, he has done
his pari well; and now, if he'
is not destroyed ' by. the jealousy
and hatred Hint killed off John Pope, he
will make the countiy glad. As justice
has at lust overtaken one of the cpauletted
scoundrels, who, within sound of the
enemy’s guns, permitted Pope, whom he
was ordered to support, to be cut to pieces,
we are not without the hope that others 1
who may have the animus which made
him in effect a traitor, may be deterred
from practising the treason that has made
him infamous.
Butwc long learned that men in this
war arc not to be estimated by their pre
tensions, nor by the partial reports of
friends. The guage of merit is Doing;
and until-Hooker proves tils title to the
honors ot a victor, wc shall be slow to
accord them.
THE ABimr OF THE POTOHAO.
There arc rumors that show that some-!
thing is to be done with the huge army |
that is 100 good to he rotted by a second I
winter’s experience in Virgigja mud, and j
which may perhaps harm the enemy 1
more effectually than by being sentto draw ]
the fire of all the thickly ranged batteries
on the road to' Richmond. The dispatches
will epcak-of possible events in terms that
sufficiently well indicate their sympathies.
When the Hew York World talks of “ dis
banding” there Is agratified chuckle reveal
ing the wish that is fatherto the thought,
and Copperheads everywhere will echo it.
But the rebels well Imow better how to
judge of the nature and effects of a quick
transportation of portions oi the great
army to make Hosccrans’ host mighty
enough to sweep down upon the railroad
spine of the Conlederacy and driveßragg
to the Gulf; and, if they see Hunter with
an adequate army so long denied him, and
know besides of the sable lining of -the
cloud, promised by his preparations to arm
the blacks; and if-further the movement
inclined into North Carolina is strengthen
ed by 50,00tf men from before Fredericks
burg, and Richmond is cut «off from its
Southern connections,—-How we ask will
the rebels like that style of 4 * disbanding?”
The Government assuredly is intending
to set the whole machine for rebel-grind-.
Ingin motion. The lazy grab that used
to be called an Anaconda has come
out of the chiysalis state; winged, and
■with teeth and claws—a figure wc do not
Ikjttow from Buffon nor the book of Dan
iel. But assuredly somebody is going to
gel hurt now. If the Government can use
the men now on the Rappahannock to any
better advantage than to pash them
straight ahead, assuredly to the points so
discovered the troops will be sent, even if
we have no -more grand specimens of mili
tary writing addressed to the Army of the'
Potomac.
GEW.BPKXsiuk,
On November 7th, Gen. Burnside sue-"
coedcd to the command of the armv of the
Potomac. His farewell to his soldiers is
given in another column. Unwillingly
assuming a position lie never coveted, he
obeyed the order of his Commonder-in-
Chief far lees willing in, his acceptance

motives of the purest patriotism. There

qualities of the'man and the patriot l are
unimpeached by the record which perhaps
shows him best fitted, for the. subordinate
position he always preferred. It* cannot
he known how far he has been hindered
by the jealousies and strifes engendered by
the experiences through which the army
of the Potomac has passed, 'experiences
that would long ago have rained any army
not composed of the finest temper.
The people will rememher_.it*of Gen.
Burnside that he aimed to hurt the rebels,
that he was in no way tender lest he should
do them harm, and that he aimed strong
and forcible blows, whose directness was
impaired by agencies not yet entirely lo
cated, but beyond his control. He had to
contend with season difficulties almost in
surmountable, with a chilling distrust fir
more formidable than the January frosts..
His resignation was submitted a fortnight
since, but recalled, temporarily, at the re
quest of the President He is now relieved.
His connection with the glorious cause of
the Union is not ended. "We shall not hear
of him caballing and dining and wining
with the enemies of the Government. His
sword is unsheathed stilt
A COBN EXCHANGE.
| The Copperhead tinkers with produce
rates are to set up for themselves; and take
the Chicago Hemes as theft* paper basis.-
They are toTiave a Com Exchange which
will have no connection with the Board of
Trade. Entire separation is to be the
motto. These men are disgusted with fit
ting out Union regiments; disgusted with
hearing about regiments wearing,and batter
ies bearing their name. Some of them are
disgusted with the tacit censure passed
upon their unnaturalized condition; some
them came here to escape taking the oath
of allegiance in other cities upon which
treason like theirs has brought the pre
sence and shadow of war. All of them
love slavery better than the Union, and
assuredly their first investment, of choice,
will not he an United States flag.
We are glad of this call on our home
rebels to come out and show themselves.
We are glad to note their segregation into
cliques, and are entirely satisfied if they
can find secesh doctors and dentists, boot
blacks and barristers, music dealers, and
market men, com doctors and Com Ex
changes, to favor with their exclusive pat
'Unionism, which is in fhr less danger when
the foreign and dangerous elements held
in turbid solution are precipitated. It is
for these rebels themselves to say if it shall
be a red precipitate. That will depend
upon whether they try a tilt with the Gov
ernment. Until then, their little by-plays
are comparatively hnnnfogp

ThoAfttoandlng Charge against the
Hon. Simon Cameron.
[Cor. of the Philadelphia Inquirer.]
Harbisbgbo, Jan. 53,1863.
Ever since the election of United States Sen
ator it has been whispered about Harrisburg
that a certain member of the House of Repre
sentatives Lad astounding disclosures to make
how a certain candidate for United States Sen
ator had offered him a large snin of money for
his vote; how the offer was apparently ac
cepted; how the money was counted down
and put into the hands of a notorious politi
cian for safekeeping; .how the memberafore
said voted against the candidate who thought
that he bad purchased him; and how the
whole affair was a nicely laid trap to catch
the candidate,. who has achieved a high
and well-merited reputation in the art of
catching others.
. The House, some days since, appointed a
committee to investigate the truth of these
rumors, but their labors have been,, to some
extent, anticipated by the publication of the
statement ■ of , Thomas Jefferson Boyer,
member from Jefferson county, who says that
he was offered a largo sum of money
to vote for Gen. Simon Cameron. Mr. Boyer
enters into a minute and circumstantial nar
rative of his several interviews with Qcri.
Cameron, and states explicitly and positively
that the moneyfor his vote was paid into-the
♦hands of John J. Patterson, to he drawn by
Boyer as soon as .he had voted for Cameron.
This statement, as may be supposed, has cre
ated no little excitement here. - !
Of course, prions opinions arc entertained
of Boyer’s motives and .conduct; Some de
nounce him as'a rogue who lacked tho cour

Burnside’s Farewell to
his Soldiers.
HIS RETIREMENT VOLUNTARY.
[SpcclalDlspatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
WAsmNQTON, Jan. 26,1863.
This morning's National Intelligencer con
tains the following: Gcncralßnrnsidc arrived
in Washington on Saturday morning, and was
in conference all the forenoon with the Presi
dent, the Secretary of War and the General
in-Chic£ We understand that at his own re
quest he was relieved from the command of
the army of the Potomac, and that the Presi
dent immediately conferred the chief com
mand on Maj. Gen. Hooker.
An evening paper here makes the announce
ment that Hooker already has his plan of
campaign formed, and that he will be ready to
enter upon its execution as soon as the roads
will permit.
The withdrawal of Franklin and Sumner
leaves the right wing under command of Maj.
Gen. Sedgwick, and the left wing under Maj.
Gen. W. F. Smith.
WjLsnnfOTOx, Jan. 25.—The following Is
the address of Gen. Burnside to the army:
Headquarters, Camp sear Falmouth, {
January 26, 1882. )
General Orders No. 9.—By direction of
the President of the United States, the Com
manding General this day transfers the com
mand of this army to Maj. Gen. Joseph
Hooker. The short time that he has directed
your movements has not been fruitful of vic
tory, nor any considerable advancement of our
line, but it has again demonstrated an amount
of courage, patience and endurance that,
under more favorable circumstances, would
have accomplished-great results.
Continue to exercise these virtues, be true
in your devotion, to your countiy and the
principles you have sworn to malnfoin. Give
to the brave and skillful General who has long
been identified -with- your organization, and
who is now to command yon, your fall and
cordial support and co-operation, and you

MAJOR GENERAL JOSEPH HOOKER.
The new commander of the Army of the Po
tomac is a native of Massachusetts, and was
bom at Old Hadley, in 1816, being now forty-
Bcvcn years old., He entered West Point in
1833, his appointment being charged to that
State. In 1837 ho received his appointment
of Second Lieutenant of artillery. In Febru
ary, IS3S, he was appointed Assistant Com
missary of Subsistence, and promoted to a
First Lieutenancy. ’ From July to October,
1841, he acted os Adjutant at the Military
Academy, and from IS4I to 1845 he ranked as
Regimental' Adjutant. When the war with
Mexico broke out he was appointed Aid-de-
Camp to General Hamer, and displayed so
much gallantry that he was breveted as Cap
tain. He particularly distinguished himself
at Monterey. In the early part of 1847 he
was made Assistant Adjutant General, with
the rank of Captain. For his sagacity and
courage at the National Bridge, he was bre
veted Major, and soon after, at Chapultepee,
rendered himself so conspicuous that ho was
'breveted Lieutenant Colonel. The warcnded,
he withdrew from the service and emigrated
to California where he engaged in commerce,
with but moderate success.
At the breaking out of the rebellion he con
sidered that the education he had received at
the expense of his country was a sacred trust,
and immediately offered his services to the
Government, -who, aware of his abilities, ap
pointed him Brigadier General of volunteers,
on Ujc XTth of April, HSls Ho was placed in

THE MILITARY CHANGES,
Rnmors—Measures—Projects.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune,]
Wabiungton, January 26,1863.
Bnmsidc’s resignation of the command of
the army of the Potomac, and HookerV ap
pointment to succeed him, were attempted to
be telegraphed last night. If yonr dispatches
failed to get through, yon must, before this;
have received the official confirmation of the
same statement from headquarters at Fred
ericksburg.
The stories that Simmer iM Franklin were
ordered to Waahington turner arrest, grew
out of the fhet that both levre been relieved
of their commands—the forifier at his own re
quest,and the latter-becanso'-bf the convic
tion here of the necessity foii'such a course.
Sumner preferred his request to he relieved
immediately after the battle of Antietam. It
has never been possible to grint it tin now. ;
It is rumored that Prankl^Bjregards behig
relieved of his command as imputation on"
his conduct, and will demand. Court of In
quiry. Tbf rumor goes that if such
demand he made it will be promptly granted,
and that this Court will be lure to show that
the action, in military career
which have caused him to be" most blamed,"
have been done in direct obedience to specific
orders trom McClellan. i
. It is believed that the upshot of the whole
matter will be a conrt martial of McClellan
himself Hitchcock’s remarkable letter flatly:
accusing McClellan of disobedience of the
President’s orders is regarded as a forerunner
of such a course.
It is thougbt that there can he no donbt that
action -wilt now he the word, with the army of
the Potomac. Hooker is a man either to make
or break, and not to stand very long waiting
to go about it.
His appointment In Burnside's place causes
no surprise. It has been thought probable
at any time since Antietami and was always
thought sure to come, sooner or later. .
Speaking of the appointment, last night
Wendell Phillips. said, “In our delving for a
a General we have gone through the drift and
stubble of McClellan and tire rich alluvial soil
of Burnside, but now, thank God, we were
striking the solidgranite of Hooker.”
1 Burnside, Sumner and Franklin c&znc up to
night. For the present, all these may be
considered as added to our list of relieved
Major Generals.
Senator "Wilson introduced an important
bill to-day, providing’ for the organization of
a volunteer force in the several States, to be
called National Guards of the United States,
to consist of2oo regiments of twelve compa
nies, each company of 100 men, divided
among the States pro rata .
Enlistments can embrace men between the
ages of twenty-one and thirty-five years, citi
zens of the United States.
Each regiment is divided into three bat.
talions, the officers ‘consisting of Colonel,
Lieutenant Colonel, three Majors, and twelve
captains, to be appointed by the Governors of
the several States. Any part of this force may
be ordered into the service ofthe United
States by the President, daring any war, in
vasion or rebellion.
Crawford's great bronze statue of Liberty
is to be placed on the dome of the Capitol
next 4th of July. No speaker has yet been
secured for the occasion, and the selection of
one seems to embarrass those haying the mat
ter in hand.
The majority Ways and Means bill passed
the House to-day in the' shape in which it
came from the committee* of the whole, ex
cept that clause taxing deposits was stricken
out. The Jay Cook bill Introduced by Mr.
Stcyens received but 18 rotes. It is believed
that the Senate will not make any essential
alteration in the bill, unless it be to.ltax bank
circulation more heavily, and, perhaps, also
to tax on the national currency scheme.
Last year the Senate Finance Committee re
fused to alter the principles'of the revenue
bill, on the ground that to do so would be to
trench on the province of the House, and'the
Senate sustained this view.
The Committee on the Conduct of the War
was authorized to-day to inquire into the cir
cumstances of the recent successful intermed
dling of Gen. Franklin and his officers with
Gen. Burnside's plans, hy which the President
was induced to countermand a forward move
ment.
The Secretary of War has called upon Got.
Andrew to furnish a number of white officers
for the African brigade which Gen. Daniel
Ullman is authorized lb raise in the South.
A similar request has been made of other Re
publicans in official positions.
The President is urged from antl-slaverv
quarters to supercede Gov. Stanley, and ap
point Gen. Fremont as. Military Governor of
2forth Carolina, and to make it one part of
his work to organize military strength of
the black population.
This proposition has been pressed on the
President for some time, but.thus far without
much encouragement.
Representative Hooper’s bin establishing
a nationalcnrrency, slightly amended, wasjin
troduccd by Senator Sherman: to-day.
Senator Harlan introduced a bill to-day au
thorizing the President to seize hold and run
during the rebellion aline of railroad from
some Atlantic port to some point not further
East than.Chicago, thence to three poidts on
the Mississippi opposite Minnesota,
lowa,, and Missouri, respectively,
a Board of Control, composed of three com
missioners, to appraise the roads, taken to
superintend them, keep them in repair, and
to run them for passengers and freight at not
exceeding the total expenses of the Govern
mails, to be carried free.
The owners of the roads' to receive seven
percent of .the appraised value. : ■
The Massachusetts men, at their interview
with the President yesterday evening, urged
upon him two things of special importance—
that he should employ no agents, either in
civil or military positions, except those who
arc heart and soul with him for the country,
and that he should extend the Proclamation
of Freedom to all slave territories, making a;
. promise for the compensation of loyal mas
ters. Wendell Phillips was specially promi
nent in urging these points. !
Harrison of Ohio to-day introduced the im
portant resolution that the Military Committee
be instructed to report a bill authorizing the
Government to accept troops that may volun
teer, wholly irrespective of any previous lim
itations. ' It is believed that a few victories
would render it possible to raise volunteers
again, and; that we certainly need all we can
get:

crans hopes that the Cincinnati,' Louisville
and other Western newspapers will desist
from the practice of publishing.reports of
shipments of supplies to the Department of
the Cumberland. It is substantially a notifi
cation to the rebels to prepare to capture
them.
. It is understood, however; that newspapers
would not moke such publicatlbns Quarter

Wheeler’s cavalry made a dash ata train of
cars on Sunday,' on the railway be tween Nash
ville and Franklin, and succeeded iu destroy
ing two cars. They were frightened away hc-
destroyed the balance of the train.
A convalescent soldier killed' one of the
rebels. One Federal Sergeant' was badly
wounded. Brig. Gen. D. S. Stanley followed
the rebels sharply, but they , had too much
start of him. He rode fifty miles within
twenty hours.
' The rebel cavalry In conlldorahla' numbers
are constantly hovering on our flanks, watch

Until the Government reinforces the cavalry
arm of this department, and supplies large
numbers of horses to mount infinity regi

stopped.
The rebel General Wheeler has been made
a Major General, and is in command of all the
rebel cavalry in Tennessee.
Capt. E. Elmer Otis, 4th United States cav

ly in a splendid and successful charge upon the
enemy in the battle of Stone Hirer, arid-who
is now in command of a brigade of cavalry,
has been recommended by Maj. Gen. Eose
crans and Brig. Gen. D. S. Stanley, and all the
officers of the brigade, for promotion to aßri
adier General.
Brig. Gen. James'A. Garfield, who whipped
Humphrey Marshal in East Kentucky,, and

Brig. Gen. R. S. Granger commands Rose

are being reinforced.
An Intercepted letter from a member of
Bragg’s staff, indicates that the feeling against
Brnggis so strong that he will be superceded.
The writer admits that notwithstanding tlje
rebels captured the most guns and several
thousand prisoners from us, they were badly
whipped. He says the slaughter of their offi
cers was awful, and although the fighting of
the rebel array was splendid, they were beat
en by superior generalship and by the obsti
