Address “CHICAGO TEIBCKE," ChiMjo, HI.
the NEWS.
The exciting feature of the morning’s
news is the late affair at Charleston which
comes to us through rebel channels.
The news from Vicksburg is encourag
ing as regards the health and condition of
our troops. The canal project now pro
mises well, and Vicksburg may indeed
this time become an inland town. All the
evidences indicate that the work of its re
duction will be slow.
The gallant little affair at Fort Donel
fon was a success for our forces. The
rebel Forrest led the attacking force some
3,000 or. moro strong. The repulse was
complete and thorough.
Kentucky has another scare over John
Morgan who is threatening another raid
northward from the Cumberland. The
alarm at Lexington proves, however, to
have been groundless.
In the Indiana Legislature as well as our
own. the Copperheads have broken cover
and are out in full cry for an armistice.
Little Fuller has begun to disgust even
his friends. The shameless knavery of the
little fellow, his bare faced impositions on
the good nature and good sense even of
those who would be his party friends on
fair terms, have begun to prove damning
to everything he touches, • and even the
Copperheads begin to think little Fuller
a nuisnnee. His last act ot treachery was
to privately tinker the City Charter, into
which he has introduced Fullerisms very
liberally, so much so as to make it very
likely that the whole thing will fail.
From Charleston we have exciting news
rf serious disaster to our fleet off that city.
The intelligence is exclusively through
rebel channels and must he received with
clue allowance, but it is too circumstantial
and minute not to have some basis in fact,
and that fact a disastrous one to our ves
sels engaged. From present appearances
it is the affair of the Merrimac and the
Cumberland over again, a failure
in the wooden ware business. A
wooden fleet lies watching the hole
where formidable iron-clads are known
Jo be in process of construction. On the
•flay when least expected, out rush the
mailed monsters, striking deadly blows
with armed beak, and rain of heavy metal,
before which Umber walls and wooden
tjdes make feeble show of resistance, and
Hie victors shaking off the fragments and
splinters from their prows go hack again
unscathed, for there was no Monitor there.
This is on the basis of the rebel account.
We cannot wholly discredit it, even though
the news *has passed through the ambi
dextrous manipulation of the New York
But there is something in the story—
enough to cause alarm and anxiety on the
part of the nation, and especially among
those who have friends among those on
board our vessels so exposed. It has been
recent ly staled by letter writers on the au
thority of deserters from Charleston, that
the naval force in the harbor consisted of
two vessels, constructed for the defense of
the city, but believed to be lackingin cveiy
requisite essential for speed or for service
jit sea. * These gunboats, one of which
mounts five guns, while the other has but
three, were said lobe constructed some
what after the manner of the original Her
rimac, with sloping sides and an armor of
railroad and bar iron.
Nothing is easier than to believe the
Qualities of lliofc vessels were purposely
underrated by the rebels to disarm the fleet
outside, of all apprehension. The evidence
is quite conclusive now that these boats
have qualities for “service at sea,” The
action of Beauregard is characteristic, in
declaring the blockade broken, in which
he is joined by a chorus of petty consuls.
The closing two lines of the same dis
patch give the lie to the boast, for
these report “ twenty blockading vessels off
the harbor,” and here,provokinglyenough,
the news steps. We prefer to believe that
Just here Beauregard was called off to more
impoi lant duties than boastful dispatches
and the small consuls each run home to
the protection of lus little flag, for if we
conjecture aright, the fleet off the harbor
was our iron-dads, and the arrival of Da
vid Hunter's expedition, which by this
lime may have put a stop to the transmis
sion of cheerful rebel news out of
It is not an altogether unreasonable hy-
pothesis to believe that this attack on our
blockading fleet was planned in expecta
tion of the arrival of the expedition, and
the rebel rams executed their mission to
release the fleet of cotton vessels that
•otherwise would have been caught in their
hole. Likely enough, the little Consuls
Jhave less reference to tbe victory out
side,, than to the clearance that took
from the harbor, under cover of tem
porary disaster to our fleet. They
would naturally claim the blockade
raised j if y easels sailed out of the harbor,
without interruption. This is only sur
mise. The whole matter is in doubt, and
we include the share due to the exaggera
tive proclivities of Beauregard as well.
This much seems certain. The rebels at
tacked our fleet and temporarily opened
their harbor. ‘We suggest one use they
made of the advantage. The dispatches
end just where the suggestion begins, that
the retribution of Charleston mayhave
commenced. For further intelligence the
people will eagerly wait.
Indiana Copperheads say No. They
dread such an ordeal for thoir acts. They
know ■who have gone to the wars, and are
rejoicing in the immunity furnished to
home traitors by the absence of loyal vol
unteers. Their action yesterday at Indian
apolis is conclusive of their views aud
sympathies. In Illinois the case is pre
cisely the same. Mr. Richardson may have
the shamelessness to claim in. the United
Slates Senate that the Democrats arc in the
majority among Illinois troops in the field,
hut the Copperheads at Springfield would
give the lie direct to >lr. Richardson on the
question of allowing the soldiers to vote.
They dare not do it. They are hastening
with all zeal to push their treasonable
schemes beyond the reach of the loyal vol
unteers from our State. Let the matter be 1
tested, and the record of these Copper
heads be made. The people are In favor
of the measure. Let petitions bo poured
in to allow the soldiers to vole. The ses
sion is half completed, and any action de
signed in this direction must he prompt,
Meetings on this subject have already been
hold in various parts of the State, Let
memorials be widely circulated, and the
opportunity offered these Copperheads leg
islators at Springfield to add to their re
cord another most damning blot. They
dare not allow the soldiers to vote. Let
Ihc record be made against them, that they
dare not.
The Committees on Confederate Rela
tions (we beg pardon, vre should have writ
ten Federal Relations,) in both branches of
our State Legislature, have brought in re
ports, in which the mask Is laid aside, and
the open clamor for an armistice is begun.
They recommend a Peace Convention at
Louisville, and are read}* and eager to stop
the war. The Commissioners are already
named, and it is glory enough for poor
Goudy, that he is enrolled among them.
These Commissioners are to communicate
with the several State Legislatures and
Executives, and with the Federal Govern
ment, and Goudy looks to being sent to
Richmond to confer with Jeff. Davis. The
same scheme is simultaneously brought up
in the Indiana Legislature, save that Nash
ville is named. We like the amendment
urged by the gallant Union men of Indian
apolis, that the Convention meet at Rich
mond. It will be bringing it home to the
power that controls it. It is all being done
iu the interest of Jeff. Davis, and it is a
matter of convenience, merely, to convene
the Peace men at Richmond. Richmond
is the place for it, gentlemen.
The tokens from Kentucky are bright
ening. By a strict party vote yesterday in
the Senate at Frankfort, the Federal Gov
ernment was sustained, and the loyalty of
the majority attested. Yesterday also Con
gress passed the bill to arm 20,000 Ken
tuckians as a guard to the State. Ken
tucky's lesson in loyalty has been bitterand
salutary. She dallied with the chivalry
and got a full crop of butternuts under
John 3lorgan, and a more plenteous one
under Bragg. The guerillas and theirruids
have cured Kentucky and reared up de
fenders of the Union on her own soil, who
will be her best safeguard against the re
currence of the visitations her people have
known. They see now there is no safety
for them save in the Union.
The Legislative Committee from Indi
anapolis came direct from their visit to the
Northern Penitentiary, at Indianapolis, to
this city. The Copperhead majority of
the Committee were for several hours clos
eted with leading Chicago Copperheads,
where doubtless the question was less ou
the state of the Union than on interests of
Northern secesh. IVe doubt if they left
greater knaves bcldnd them in the city of
sand hills, than they found gathered in
their place of assembling in Chicago.

Cbablestov, Jan. 31. —The iron clad gun-
boats Cbicom and Palmetto State, with three
steamers as tenders, went out beyond the bar
at 1 o’clock this morning, to attack the block
ading fleet. Firing began soon after one, and
for a time it was very rapid; afterwards It
slackened, but continued at intervals until 9
o’clock this morning. Owing to the fog the
result has not yet been ascertained, Com.
Ingraham is aboard the Palmetto Shite as
commander of the expedition.
This morning the gunboats Palmetto State
and Chicora, accompanied by three small
steamers, nil under the command of Commo
dore Ingraham, made an attack on the block
aders aud succeeded in sinking two and- crip
pling a third. The engagement commenced
at 4 o'clock. The Palmetto State with Com
modore Ingraham aboard, ox'ened fire upon
the Federal gunboat Mereeditn, carrying
eleven guns and 15S men, which was sunk in
five fathoms of water. Her Commander,
Captain Slcetwageu, with a boat’s crew, came
on board and surrendered. One shot pierced
her boiler, going clear through. Capt Sleet
wagen and crew were paroled by Commodore
Ingraham. Captain Tucker, of the Chicora,
reports sinking another Federal gunboat, and
disabling the steamship Quaker City. The
latter was eot on fire by the Chicora, and the
steamer hauled down her Hag and surrender
ed; but afterwards managed to escape with
only one wheel. She was very seriously dam
aged. The number of the blockading fleet
outside, at the time of the attack, was thirteen,
with two first-class frigates—the Susquehanna
aud Canandaigua. The Federal loss Is very
severe. It was a complete success on our part,
with not a man hurt. Ourgunboatswere not
even struck. All the blockaders have disap
peared. There is not one to be seen within
live miles with the strongest kinds of glasses.
Our boats are now returning to Charleston,
The following is from the official dis
Ox Board the Qcnboat Palmetto State.
I went out last night. This boat struck the
Mcrccdita, when she sent a boat aboard and
surrendered. The officers and crew were pa
roled. Capt. Tucker thinks he sunk one ves
sel, and set another ou fire, when she struck
her flag. The blockading fleet had gone
southward and eastward, out of sight. •

Charleston, Jan. Sl.—Ourgnuboats Pal
metto State and Chieora have reached the
wharves. They were enthusiastically cheered
by an immense concourse ol citizens, who
hnd assembled to greet them. Salutes were
fired from the forts and batteries. Not a man
was hurt on our side, and our gunboats were
not struck by the enemy. Our attack on the
fleet was a complete surprise to the blocka
des, each one running away without cari.ig
for the others. It is supposed that nearly all
ol the crew of the Mcrccdita perished. The
Palmetto State, which engaged the Mcrccdita,
having no boats, and fighting at the time,
conld render her no assistance. Tho Quaker
City was struck twice, and one of her side
wheels almost torn off.
Charleston, Feb. I.—Gen. Beauregard and
Com. Ingraham, as commanders of the laud
and naval forces, have issued a joint procla
mation, dated January hist, declaring the
blockade of Charleston raised, the entire hos
tile squadron having been sunk, burned or
dispersed by a superior naval force of the Con
federates. Testerdry afternoon Gen. Beau
regard placed a steamer at the disposal of
the foreign Consuls to see for themselves
that no blockade existed. Tbe French and
Spanish Consuls, accompanied by Gen. Rip
ley, accepted* the invitation. The British
Consul, with the commander of the British
war steamer Petrel, kid previously gone live
miles beyond the usual anchorage of the
blockaders and could see nothing of them
with glasses. Late in the evening four block
nders re-appeared, keeping far out. This
opening a large number of blockaders are in
sight, but keep steam up, evidently ready
to run.

The bill appointing three commissioners of
railroads, passed the Senate by a vote of
fourteen to ten. It provides that all the rail
roads in the State shall make returns to the
commissioners, and shall not cam over ten
per cent, on their capital. It provides that
the roads may be enjoined, and that the com
missioners may sue before Justices of the
Peace, and Police Justices. It provides a
penalty of SIOO per clay for five days, or one
year imprisonment in the penitentiary, where
any railroad officer shall neglect to comply
with the orders of the commissioners.
Mr. Ogden made the ablest speech of the
session, in opposition to the bill. Messrs.
Bushncll, Green, and Mason, spoke in favor
of the bill. The commissioners are to he ap
pointed by the Government.
Tbc Committees on Federal Relations in
both houses, introduced resolutions substan
tially justifying secession. They declarethat
the Union has no existence apart from the
Constitution; that when the provisions of
the Constitution are suspended in war or

the Constitution cannot be maintained, nor
union preserved in opposition to public feel
ing by the coercive power of tbc General Gov
ernment; that in case of differences or con-'
Aids between States and tbc Federal Govern

The HuUt (in of the 2d has the following:
Last week it became known to the military
authorities that Lieut. Col. Wood, of Forrest’s
cavalry, was in this city, in citizen’s dress,
He was arrested and placed in Irving Block,
as a military prisoner. On Friday night, Col.
Wood disappeared from the prison, but after
wards fell into the hands of a party under
Col. Lee, that was scouting outside the
city, and was again placed in Irving
Block, a prisoner. He acknowledged
that he had escaped on Friday night,
by aid of a Federal officer, one Lieut. Lewis,
2d Lieut, of the 2d U. S. regular cavalry.
Lewis had furnished him with a pair of false
whiskers, and the coat o? a Federal officer,
and by the aid nf these h* had passed 'the
guard. For these services he stated tliat he
paid Lewis SSOO. On this charge Lewis was
placed under arrest in his quarters. On Sun
day night he broke his bunds, and by virtue
of his position as an ofllcer, entered the Ir
ving Block. He went to the- room where Col,
Wood was lying asleep on the bed or floor,
gave him a kick and called upon him to rise.
As Wood was doing so, he drew a pistol and
fired, striking the officer In the mouth, the
ball passing out at the back of his Lead.
Lieut. Lewis then surrendered himself. He
is a man noted for recklessness, and was pro-
muted to his position from the ranks, on ac
count of brave conduct.
Yesterday, a cotton wagon returning home

The Senate had uo quorum for the Iran sac

The House tabled a resolution inviting the

Several of the Copperheads were terribly
exercised about the‘distribution of arms, and
feared that they might be used la the sup-
pression of some of their treasonable meet

developing the fact that arms were shipped
to private parties, and that so far as Govern

only to authorized companies.

The project of cutting another canal at the

Our forces were stretched along the hanks
from Young's Point to Warrcnton, opposite
Vicksburg. The soil is sandy and dries
quickly after rain, and the camping grounds
are considered good for thejoeality. The pro
jected canal is to he on a larger scale than
the former one. It is to be dug down to
quicksand, so as to lusnre the cutting out,
and to be large enough to use for boats to
pass, thus facilitating operations below as
well as above the city.
The whole horse-shoe opposite Vicksburg
is in Federal possession. Gens. Grant, Sher
man and McClemand rode over it on Thurs
day, making personal recomioissance.
There is si rumor in the army that Port
Hudson had been taken, but it is probably
untrue and supposed to have originated from
the stoppages of rebel steamers running be

informed that the majority of the soldiers of
Illinois were Republicans. That not a corpo
rals guard of Democrats went from Kansas.
Mr. RICHARDSON qnotcfl at length from
the returns of Illinois regiments toshow they
were mainly composed of Democrats. He
feared that such bills as this, and the bills to
pav for slaves, and place an inferior race side
bv*side with the white man, were passed, the
country would be plunged into civil war.
Mr- LANE said as far as the Senator's speech
related to the negro question, he had heard
the same for twenty years, but he protested,
in the name of the soldiers of Blinois, against
the attempt to incite political dissensions
among them.

Mr. TRUMBULL said lie was exceedingly
sorry ItLs colleague bad made such a partisan
speech-when there -were half a million of
rebels in arms against the Government. He
was sorry his colleague had undertaken to in
quire whether soldiers voted the Democratic

in making military appointments in Illinois
no question of politics was made at all.
Mr. RICHARDSON asked If bis colleague
did not sign a protest to the President that

Mr TVILSON of Mass, contended that the
bill was not open to the objections urged.
It gave the President. power to make all
needful regulations, and he considered the
section as necessary. __ ,
Mr CARLISLE of Va. offered an amend
ment, to call the Senate’s attention to what
he considered the dangers of this bill.
Mr. LAYAKD contended that the general
Government had no right to interfere with
the control of the State militia.
Mr. NESMITH of Cal., said the bill gave
power to call out'the militia, and if neces
sary, to make a draft. He believed a great
deal of evil was due to tbc inefficiency and
Inability of those at tbc bead of the Govern
ment. Tbc Democratic element had commu

This bill Is similar to the one of yesterday,
