THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 5,1855.
A GREAT BLUNDER.
The outcry of the Copperheads against
“arbitrary arrests” became loudest after
the Government changed its policy, ceased
to arrest secessionists and turned loose
those already arrested. The leniency of
the Government was construed to mean
fear and cowardice. And now we hear
the boast being made that “ the Govern
ment dare not arrest a mouse.” It is sup
posed to be completely under the influence
of Its fears, and that traitors can now en
joy a carnival with none to molest or make
them afraid. It was a great blunder to ar
rest blatant secessionists, imprison them
for a few weeks or months, and then turn
them loose, ready-made martyrs, to return
home tcnfoldworse than before. They be
come the centers of all the secession sym
pathies-of their neighborhoods. They no
longer feel any sort of fear or restraint, and
the Copperheads seeing the safety with
which the “ martyrs ” can spout treason*
become emboldened to emulate them.
Things are said and done now with per
fect impunity that four months ago, before
the “general jail delivery,” would have
startled and alarmed the country, and led
to instant arrest The mildness and in
dulgence of the Govemmenthave bred con
tempt for its authority, and in giving the
Copperheads an ell they have taken £ yard,
It was a great blunder ever to have
made an arrest for spouting secession,
when nothing more was to he done with
the guilty parties than to restrain them in
a fort for a few weeks, and then open the
<ratcs and hid them go forth and preach
»• persecution and treason ” to their heart’s
content. Either they should not have
been taken up, or they should have been
dealt with differently. The true policy to
pursue toward those fellows would be, to
send them South to their friends, where
they naturally belong. The whole collec
tion in Forts Hemy and Lafayette
ought to have been put on
board a steamer and sent up the
James River under flags of truce,
and delivered to the Confederates as pris
oners of war, with notice that, if found
again during the war, within our lines,
they would be dealt with as spies, accord
ing to the articles of war. If tins mode of
procedure had been adopted, there would
he no “blessed martyrs” going about stir
ring up sedition, and poisoning the minds
of the people. Nor would Jeff. Davis’
minions have “living examples of Lincoln’a
persecution” to show to sympathetic
crowds, in their perambulations about the
country.
A secession sponter arrested ami sent
South to his affinities, ceases to attract
sympathy, or to stir np sedition. The pub
lic verdict would be, “ Served him right;
if he is for Jeff. Davis, let him go to his
master.” Disloyal persons thus disposed
of can not play the role of “ blessed mar
tyrs,” calling themselves the inmates of
“abolition bastiles.” They retain their
personal liberty, but their fimgs are drawn
and their bite can do no further harm.
Public sentiment would have sustained
this method of dealing with secession
spouters, and to-day there would not be
one-tenth of the treasonable utterances that
are beard, nor a hundredth part of the dis
loyal acts that are being done. It was a
great blunder, and every day makes it
more manifest
A NXGBO REGIMENT.
The "Washington papers of the 2d, con
tain a letter from Gen. Saxton, at Beau
fort, Territory of South Carolina, to the !
Secretary of 'Wax, in relation to the Negro
Regiment at that place, which letter wc
print in another column, and ask
lor it the earnest attention of such of
our loyal readers as still have doubts
about the propriety of putting muskets
into the hands of emancipated slaves, and
using them in our armies as soldiers of
the Republic. Neither Gen. Saxton’s au
thority to speak nndcrstandingly, nor his
inclination to speak truthfully, on the sub-!
ject, can be doubled. He is a high-toned
and an excellent officer, and his
statements must be received as
facts. If so, wc ask the readers to whom
we refer, if tills is not an encouraging
beginning—this regiment that already dis
plays such “alacrity,” “vigilance,” “enthu
siasm” and “devotion?” And what reason
can there be, except disloyalty or a preju
dice as hateful as it is mischievous, to impel
any man to wish that the Government, in
this matter, may take any backward step ?
The highest test of the experiment is yet
to be made. "Will these freed men fight ?
On that point, no man who knows the his
tory and achievmcats of black soldiers un
der the drill and leadersliip of white men,
can have any doubt In this case they
have, for urging them onward, a
combination of motives that ought
to put courage into the breast of
a statue of marble or brass. And wc shall
be disappointed, if in the trials of their sol
dier-like capability that will surely be made,
they do not put the question of their daring
at rest forever. "Would to Heaven that each
man of them could fed how much of the
future happiness or misery of the race to
which they belong, hangs on their conduct
when they receive the fire of the enemy for
the first time. Stolid, ignorant and half
brutalized as they are, by the weight of the
oppression that they have endured, they
would, if electrified by the knowledge that
we covet for them, do deeds that would
make the world resound with their praise I
IDE LONDON TIMES.
The London Times is usually regarded
as the exponent of popular opinion in
Englon d. "When any great question is agi
tating the public mind, every one is eager
to sec what this journal says about it; and
even those "who know the exact value of
the Thunderer’s opinion, and the amount
of reliance to be placed npon it, read its
leading articles with a nervous interest,
and often with ill-concealed trepidation, as
if the “ Scamp Jupiter” of Printing House
Square should have committed, in
himself to the wrong side of the advocacy.
These facts show, at least, the power that
the Tima possesses; but that it represents
the thought, feeling and convictions of the
English people, is altogether a mistake.
They like to read it, it is true, as one likes
to read a brilliant essay, or a smart speech,
but they are not hoodwinked by it, nor ca-:
joled by its specious eloquence and spark
ling wit. . They' call it the “Lying
Tima” and the middle and work
ing classes especially, arc fierce in
their denunciations of it. It is the auto
crat of the Press, and treats all Us cotem
poraries with supreme contempt. But
strong as it undoubtedly is in all that con
stitutes strength, and wonderfully talented
as most of its articles are, it has never yet
stood as the conqueror of the people when
they have arrayed themselves against it.
An intelligent, persistent expression of
opinion on Kew Hall Hill in Birmingham,
at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester, at
Paradise Square in Sheffield, and at the
enormous Cloth Hall of Leeds, has many a
lime dashed the thunder from the hand of
Jove, and brought him to terms of peace,
and compelled him to eat his own words,
and advocate the cause of Ms opponents.
The Tima professes that it never tries
to lead public opinion, that it merely floats
along with it, reflecting in its columns the
feeling and tendency oi the day and hour.
Carlyle, in his life of John Sterling, tells
ns that Sterling’s father, who was once
editor of the Tima, always adopted this
policy in the conduct of that journal, driv
ing to the clubs and hotels, to coffee
houses, the ’Change, and all public places,
hearing what every one had to say upon'
the political measures of the hour, and then
hurrying to Ins office, and writing as the
popular pulse-beat and dictated. But we
know that this is not the present policy
Times. It will lead if it can, and
only at tile last hour, when leadership is a
loring game, does it make its bow as a ser
yu-i, below the salt. The' Two is la the
bands of a 'wealthy corporation, and iU af-1
fairs arc conducted with great commercial 1
and political ability and skill. But, like
too many of our own [papers, it is not proof
against corruption, and you may buy its
talent and influence to any cause, for so
much a column. It is clear enough,
that it has lately been subsidized
by the Secessionists, and they have
had to pay a fabulous price for their big
English whistle. For even the Tima,
which is so matchless in its effrontery—in
its brazen impudence—in its lies, and frau
dulent transactions—could not be bought
over to advocate the soverignty of individ
ual States, and the divine right of Slavery
—unless it secured for its tergiversation
and treachery more than Thirty Pieces of
Silver.
There is indeed but one sacred column in
tins abominable and most infamous sheet
—and that is the one devoted to the
“ Money Article.” There is no buying this,
nor tampering with it. Virtue and
morality and religion, truth, liberty
and justice arc fair marketable commodi
ties, hut the price of stocks, of the three per
cents, of gold and bullion, and all the rest of
them, is not to be misstated. Conscience
reigns over this one column, at least, and
all the others are rotten with corruption.
As might be expected the English Gov
ernment, through its agents and secret ser
vice money, makes frequent use ol the
Tima to feel the pulse of the people upon
any doubtful measure which they are de
sirous of carrying; and many a shaky min
istry has been bolstered up by the Satanic
eloquence of this vile pander of abuses, of
wrong and enormous crime.
Our own people are far too sensitive of
the opinion which the English Times, and
the English people entertain of them and
their doings. Be sure the opinion of the
Times weighs not a feather with the great
bulk of the English people, and all the
virtue and intelligence to be found in their
ranks is ranged on the side of the North in
the present struggle for the Union.
Instead of paying this sensitive heed to the
iniquitous Times , we should be grateful
that this paper, which is fit only to
represent Yahoos in theircloacum ofabom
ination, should find in us so much that is.
worthy of its ridicule, and condemnation;
for its abuse of us is our highest praise, as
its praise of us would be our lowest degre
dation.
WHAX TO EXPECT,
It may he set down as a fact that, what
ever legislation in Congress, whatever poli
cy in the Cabinet, or whatever strategy in
the field, promises to hurt the rebel cause
and reduce the enemy to submission, will
he denounced by the Copperheads, either
as a violation of the, Constitution and an
act of usurpation hy the “tyrant Lincoln,”
or as an outrage upon the rights of hu
manity and the usages of civilization. Our
readers will understand that the hot and
fiery phrases that the denouncers will use,
are only so many confessions that they
feel the treason that they dare not
express. The meanest one of them dare
not assert in private conversation that he
believes that Mr. Lincoln, his immediate
advisers, or his party friends, have any de
signs upon the liberties of the people, or
upon the perpetuity of the “Constitution
as it is.” Their blathering is for party ef
fect,—to obtain power in the North, and,
finally, to reassert the claim of the De
mocracy, strengthened by slavery, to rule
the country. That’s the English of all of
it! And to attain their wishes they are
quite willing that the rebellion should
triumph.
THE SENATE’S ACTION.
The action of the Senate in striking off
the House bill the section which confers
on the Sccretary of the Treasury the power
to Issue $800,000,000 more legal tcudernotes,
gives us hope that some better and sounder
views of finance arc to he the rule in Con"
gress, and that the Government and the
country will escape the dangers that a
flood of paper money would bring upon
them.
Wc know not what plan may be substi-
tuted for the scheme ot the House; but
let the Senate persevere in the search for a
line of policy, the adoption of which is not
a notice to all the world, that wc have not
only accepted defeat, hut wooed disgrace
and ruin.
NEW PIBUCATIONB,
The People's Dental Jodknal: Edited by W.
W. Allport. D. D. S.. and S. T. Creigntoo.
Quarterly—Price fifty cents a year. In advance,
published by Allport «fc Creighton, Dentists, No.
32 Washington street, Chicago.
Something new under the sun is a periodi
cal exclusively devoted to the advancement
and elevation of Dental Science, and the
public knowledge relative thereto. The above
work is the initial number ofa new Quarterly,
neat as a new pin, whose issue begins with
the present year. The slightest examination
shows that it is free from Imputation of being
an advertising medium, or to aid empiricism,
but really a channel of information the people
may and should make valuable, on so impor
tant a subject in the human physical economy
as the care, preservation and protection o
teeth. Tills is to save health, to save pain,
to save dentists’bills, the latterpoint secur
ing for the publishers, Drs. Allport & (Brigh
ton, the claim of disinterestedness. The new
journal will be sure to be widely read, and
should be. The fifty cents a year, Its sub
scription price, is less than the (city) fee for
extracting an aching fang, and how many
such fees might-be saved to the public by a
better care of teeth, Jet the pages of the
Dental Journal attest.
THE ILLINOIS COAL FIELDS.
New Strata Discovered.
According to the census of 18G0, Illinois is
the third State in the Union, both as regards
the number of bushels and value of coal pro
duced, during the year ending June 1, 1860.
During that year our mines produced 14,253,-
320 bushels, valued at £004,157 only Pennsyl
vania and Ohio leading her in this resource.
Prof. D. C. Wilbur, Secretary of the Illi
nois Natural History Society, ia a course of
lectures at Bloomington, recently, demon
strated his reasons for bclierlng that the coal
Helds of Illinois arc much more extensive
than has heretofore been supposed—that they
really comprise about 40,000 square miles of
the State. He advanced the idea that the coal
beds Be In nearly horizontal strata, and that
the depth at which coal may be found, depends
mainly upon the topography of the country;
hence that by ascertaining the altitude of any
partleuJarlocalily, the depthof the coal below
the surface can be easily and certainly deter
mined. This field has several centres, where
It is considerably thicker than at other points.
One of these centres, is, he thinks, near
Bloomington, which theory is sustained by
the boring at Broadwcll, on the Chicago and
St. Louis Railroad, where therein is found to
be three feet in thickness, and at a nearer
point whcrcit isfourand a half feet; showing
that in a distance of a few miles towards
Bloomington, the thickness of the strata has
increased eighteen inches. In Fulton county
is located another of these basin-centres, there
being three different layers or strata, respec
tively sis, five and four feet—making a total
thickness of fifteen feet of workable coal.
The confidence placed in Prof Wilbur's
statements by the people of Bloomington,
may be inferred from the feet that the City
Council made a liberal appropriation for the
purpose of enabling him to prosecute a thor
ough Investigation, particularly in regard to
the promise for successful mining at or near
Bloomington.
It is a consoling reflection that the supply
of coal in Illinois is inexhaustible, and that
the development of this mine of wealth is in
the hands of one competent to the task. We
trust the opening of new mines will increase
the supply in an equal ratio to the rapidly in
creasing demand, and the growing scarcity of
•wood fuel.
the Uaaontc Grand Lodge Chapter.
/The House, at Springfield, adopted on Sat
urday last, but afterwards rc-consldercd, an
amendment to the act of Incorporation of
the Masonic Grand Lodge, which, if finally
made u law, will radically change and In part
destroy the Grand Lodge „ now existing.
Not to go into the details of MasonuTpolitf'
the Ancient Landmarks of Masonry grint to
the fraternity in Grand Lodge assembled,
powers of legislation and internal govern,
ment not inconsistent with their old and pub
listed Constitution. One of the most cher
ished of these Landmarks is the power to
elect their Grand Master, who is, act interim, of
the Grand Lodge, its executive, the custodian
of its rituals, Us honored and cherished head.
In the absence or death of the Grand Master,
the Deputy and the ’Wardens successively
succeed to his place, and exercise all hi a pow
ers. No Legislature in the world, not even
those of the days of anll-Masonry, ever legis
lated to interfere with the ancient preroga
tives and duties of the Grand Master. The
objects ol legislation in passing acts of incor
poration of grand lodges, are financial merely,
and to enable the Grand Lodges to hold pro
perly. The rules of Free Masonry are sub
stantially the same in all the sixty grand
lodges In the world. The radical feature In
the bill alluded to, is the following:
“The said Board of Conservators, (con
■ gisting of ten Past Grand Masters named in
the first section,) shall have full power to ex
amine into the acts, doings, and decisions of
the Grand Master while in office; and whenev
er, in their opinion, the said Grand Master
shall transcend his fairness, be guilty of usur
pation, tyranny, oppression, and a violation of
the laws of the laud, or shall be deemed mor
ally unfit for the station, the said Board of
Conservators may suspend him from exercis
ing the functions of his office, or may remove
him from said office as they may deem best.”
Nothing could be more radical than this,
when viewed from the Masonic standpoint.
All the powers of the Grand Lodge ad interim
the management of its finances, the establish
ment of new Lodges, arresting Charters, dis- 1
ciplining unworthy and cont umacloas officers,
etc., arc in effect taken from the hands of the
Grand Master, Deputy, and Wardens in whose
hands they were placed by the inviolable land
marks of the craft, and placed in the hands of
an irresponsible Board! A moment’s exami
nation of the Acts Incorporating other Grand
Lodges, will show what havoc-khls Bill will
make in old Masonic customs.
Dinner to Gen. Wool.
Col. Roome, of the New York 37th in
fantry gave a complimentary dinner to
the veteran Gen. Wool, at Delmonlco’s, in
New York. There were about fifty invited
guests present. Gen. Wool, in response to
a complimentary toast, made an eloquent
speech. He was for the whole country, and
nothing hut the whole country. No com
promise, no separation, no line of demarka
tion; and to preserve that Union inviolate,
he was willing to sacrifice all he possessed.
He would give all to preserve the countiy
and restore it to its original condition.
What was this nation two years ago? Itwas
a nation commanding the respect of the
world, whose flog was respected under every
clime and upon every soil. Where was it
now? Broken up by a bitter war between
the North and the South, which originated
through the ambition of a few men.
He was the last man who would listen to
compromise, and would not hesitate to de
nounce the man as guilty of treason who
wouldeuggcstit. If the compromisers want
ed war, perpetual war, they had hut to effect
a separation. There was no other way to
preserve the Union except by putting down
the rebellion, and his days were few, yet he
hoprd he might live long enough to sec the
Union restored.
Religions Jubilee,
The year 18C3 is to be celebrated as a year
of jubilee in the German Reformed Church In
this country, it being the three hundredth
anniversary of the formation of the Heidel
berg Catechism. The commemoration is to
comprehend two principal features—one be
nevolent, and the other literary and thologi
cal. To carry out the first, every man, wo
man and child in the church is to make a free
will offering, during the year, to some benev
olent institution of the church. To carry
out the second object, a general convention
of the pastors and lay delegates from every
congregation is to be held in Philadelphia,
beginning February 17, ISC3, and continuing
from eight to ten days. In this assembly,
essays, memoirs, and other papers pertaining
to the origin, history and fortunes of the
Heidelberg Catechism, which hare been pre
pared by eminent theologians of Europe aud
this country, arc to be read, and afterwards
discussed freely in open convention. Ser

Intriguer of Illinois Rebels.
The Secessionists of the Kentucky Lcgishi
tare held a caucus at Frankfort on Thursday
last, and resolved to run the seccsh Senator,
Lazarus W. Powell, for Governor, at the An*
gust election. General Boyle’s orders would
not allow disloyal men to vote for the past
two years, hut they now avow their determi
nation to do so at ail hazards. They say they
are pledged assistance from Indiana and lUi
noif, from which States they propose to send
secret committees at an early day, to arrange
preliminaries. An Illinois Copperhead was
present, and assured themof aid from that
State.
A Veteran.—The GTth lowa regiment,

years of age, is now doing guard duty ot St.

aged dgJity-ohc years. He is six feet eight
inches in height. He was born in Culpepper
county, Virginia, and claims to be a lineal de
scendant of Pocahontas, and his statement is
verified by his physiognomy, which betrays
the characteristics of the Indian.* He has
been twice married, (first when only nineteen
years and is the father of twenty-one
children ,ouc of which was,two weeks since,on

to be able to repeat every word of the Bible
from the beginning of Genesis to the end of

daughter having read the book to him, his
wonderful memory enabling him to retain it
after committing it to memory.

the whole number—over sixty—of Justices of
the Peace in the city of Washington, recently
there could not one be found to issue a writ on
the plea of a colored man for the arrest of a
while man who had stolen his property; and
It is conceded to be impossible for a colored
citizen to prosecute in cithcrone of the courts
a claim against a white man. Even their tes
timony is excluded from the courts, in plain
violation of the laws passed last summer for
their protection.

OUR SPRINGFIELD LETTER.
[From Onr Own Correspondent]
SriiiNarreLD, Feb. 3,1563.
THE DEMOCRATIC PROGRAMME WOM’T WORK.
The Democrats, apparently foiled for the
present in their revolutionary programme,
arc beginning to set up the cry of
“Wolf! Wolf!” themselves, in order
to escape the odium necessarily at
tendant upon failure in any enterprise.
This morning’s AVyiaOr accuses Gov. Tates,
Major Gen. Ilurlbut, Col. Noble, and other
prorainet officers in the army, prominent Re
publicans, your correspondent and others,
of an attempt to get up civil war in the State!
It quotes from Gen. Hurlbut’s speech la the
State House as follows:
“it was plain that the sure result of such
treason as Lad disgraced this hall of late, was
designed to break up the Government, and to
armbrother against brother. Rather than
this should be done, a portion of the Federal
bayonets would sweep back to purge our
father’s house of the thieves who have defiled
11.”
It then goes on to say that “no Democrat
expect or desires revolution.”
Is this so, Mr. Register? Let us sec.
The Springfield correspondent of the St.
Louis Republican in this city, known to be
Win. 8. Turney, Esq., an able man and promi
nent official in the State House, writing on
the 31st of January, says ;
“ It must have seemed to you, abroad, that
•we were having very exciting times here. So
we were; but nothing like what has been
communicated by certain sensation Abo
lition correspondents, who are seeking
to bring about a strife in our own glorious
State, truth is, that the politicians—
those who think they are, and those who are so
called leaders—-arc a long way behind the
masses of the people, if not in thought, at
least in action. The people all through the
central portion of Illinois have been holding
mass meetings and conventions, adopting res
olutions and urging upon their representa
tives In the Legislature to take similar action,
and yet, what has been done t When the Leg
islature first convened, no one could have had
any doubt, from outside appearances, but that
the right kind of men had come together at
last, and that something would be done and
that speedily. Now, look over the list of the
past four weeks’ legislation, and what has
been done? Has any measure been pro
posed to benefit our great State, or to aid in
bringing this great war to a close, and thus
save to wives their husbands and to mothers
their sons, and to relieve the already op-
Srcssed people from enormous taxation t
othing of the kind. But two weeks remain
of this session, and what will be done in that
time‘r”
Now, according to Sir. Turner, whose sig
nature is lota, we were having very exciting
times here, but nothing like what we ought
to hare had, because the leading Democrats
did not come up to the ideas of the rank aud
file of the party, who are holding mass meet
ings all ovor the State, demanding action.
"Whataction do they want? I will show
you. Here it is in resolutions of the De
mocracy of Hancock county in mass meeting
assembled in Carthage Court House on tbe
24th tilt., aud published in the Chicago
Timet:
fietolud, That we arc in favor of an armistice
until a convention of all the States can settle the
matters in dispute, anti that vre hereby call upon
our Legislature to appoint delegates to confer with
ami urge this upon the President.
llttolrdl. That as our L'niou was formed by
peaceful means, now that it is ruptured we believe
that war can never restore it, and that compromise
and Conciliation arc the only weapons that can bo
successful.
J!e*oired. That we will not again submit to Hie-
gnl arrests; that the writ of habeas corpmt must lie
restored, the rights of the citizen respected, and
civil, not martial law, be supreme in title country.
7 Weired. That resistance to oppression is a duty
to our country: and that, if the Administration
persist in trampling npon the Constitution and vi
olating the most sacred rights of the citizen, and
again have recourse to illegal arrests of ourpeOple,
then, believing it our duty to support the Constitu
tion, oven against the Administration, we will re
sipt such unconstitutional acts; and, while wo de
precate violence, still our Constitutional rights
must and shall he maintained at any and all
hazards.
Is not this revolution ? Show me the reso
lutions of a Republican meeting iu which re
sistance to the General Government Is threat
end as above? But I can'show you a score of

with Jeff. Davis and lus crew.
Gen. John A. Logan, known throughout

General Loomis was equally strong lu his

Another General said: “If wc had Dick

The Jiegukr man had better stop that cry of
“ Wolf I” It is too transparent to deceive
loyal men.
CONDITION OF THIS CITY.
According to the papers, the condition of

as is supposed, over the division of the prop

But few words passed between tfie parties,
before one of them drew a huge bowie knife
and ripped open the stomach" of the other.
The bowels protruded through the frightful
cash. Some of the intestines were cut in two.
Though he was alive last night It was afllrmed
that he could livebut a sborttlme. Owingto
the palpable inefficiency—some say timidity—
of the police, the perpetrators of the deed

the victim of his watch, otter he had been ta

DEATH OF A BROTHER OF COL. HARDIN*.

SENATE PROCEEDINGS.
Tlie Senate was not ia session to-day, there
being no quorum, most of the members being
absent on committees,visiting the State Asyl
ums at Jacksonville.
The following resolution was introduced
yesterday by Mr. Lindsay of Teona:
Jltsolctd by Ihe Senate, That the Govemorbo re
quested to lay before the Senate all information
with regard to withdrawing regiments of Illinois
treops, ami placing them in Camp Batter: also to
inform the Senate of the number of regiments
proposed to he placed at Camp Boiler: also to
place before the Senate all communications from
the War Department at Washington in relation to
the withdrawal of regiments, or parts of regi
ments, from the army, to be stationed at Camp
Butler, and If such withdrawal Is designed to be
made, to inform the Senate if the same is done for
the purpose of recruiting said regiments.
This resolution has a curious look. The
Copperheads fear the troops, and distrust all
movements of the army looking towards a
concentration of loyal troops in this State!
Will Mr. Lindsay talk out plainly, and not in
riddles?
HOrSE PROCEEDINGS.
A number of members on both sides of the
House were absent this morning on the orders
of the House respecting the State institution
at Jacksonville, But a quorum was present,
and the regular order were pursued without
interruption till nearly noon. Just before the
adjournment a message was announced from
the Governor. It was in relation to the Chi
cago Historical Society, and accompanying
the message was the report of the Secretary
of the society, Rev. William Barry.
AFTERNOON.

of meeting In the afternoon announced the

to charge the grand and petit juries in relation
to the freedom of the citizen, which means
the writ of habeas corpus , as it effects the trai
tors arrested or that may be arrested. On mo
tion the subject was postponed till to-morrow
at 3 o'clock. After considerable skirmishing,
pending which several private bills were pass
ed, a motion prevailed to take up the Senate
messages on their third reading.
This move was made to reach the peniten
tiary appropriation bill. The caucus had dc
teimlned to pass the bill; and the leading
talkers on the other side took the floor in
succession. , _

large. But of course some appropriation has

Mr. Eastman stated the point of difference
clearly. He had been In lavor clearly of mak

war fund of $50,000. But they were prepared,
it seemed, to say that this enormous appro

TreißUrv-ItN Eflcct upon the Cur
rency—Xhe Government and the Peo
ple consollditcd-Letter from Hon,
B. J- Walker.
[Correspondence K. T. Times.]
Washington, Jan. 31, 1863.
Necessity and sound psllcy alike demand
the the adoption of Secretary Chase’s well
guarded free general banking scheme, as a
means of averting impending peril. What is
that plan? As embodied iu the bill intro
duced last year by Mr. Hooper of Masachu
cctts, it is, in brief, ajgcneral charter from the
United States Government, under which any
number of hanks of deposit, discount and
circulation, may be organized and operated,
under certain restrictions and conditions.
Chief among the latter is a provision that the
circulation of said banka shall be protected
by deposit of United States interest-bearing
bonds, for ninety per cent of the market
value oi which (never exceeding par) Gov
ernment shall issue to them blank
circulating notes, to be filled in with
the name of the institution issuing
them, &c. Any Banking Associations already ’
in existence may avail themselves of the pro
visions of the bill, by reorganizing under it
in tbe same manner as original organizations.
And, In order to make it the interest of ex
istingjnstitutions thus to reorganize, the bill
propHes to furnish them circulation without
cost. This, coupled with the fact that the
national circulation will be a superior cur
rency, equally good in every part of the
Union, receivable everywhere for hues aud
all.dues to the Government, other than duties
on Imports, would speedily compel every
Bank of issue in the land to abandon their
circulation altogether, or give their custom
ers the advantages proffered by the new sys
tem. Various provisions arc made to carry
out the details of the system proposed, and
to thoroughly protect the public iu receiving
the circulating notes described; but the fore
going statement gives the gist of the measure,,
and presents its vital principle.
IT BELIEVES THE TREASURY, BT CHECKING IN
ERATION.
The first inquiry of the reader doubtless V.
“How will the adoption of such a plan sus
tain the public credit, and avert the threaten
ed danger of national and individual bank
ruptcy?*’ 1 answer, by restricting the amount
of paper currency alloat, keeping it entirely
within control oi the Government, correcting
the present great redundancy and intiation,
and checking the disastrous competition now
maintained between local banks on one hand
and the Treasury on the other, in the matter
of putting afloat their respective paper. The
important hearing of these propositions will
more distinctly appear as we proceed in the
discussion. Secretaiy Chase, upon whom the
financial responsibility chiefly rests, who has
made the whole subject matter of carelul
study, and whose opinions are emphatically
indorsed by the President and all his associ
ates in the Cabinet, tells us that the existing
hank circulation prevents or embarrasses the
process of funding the public debt, by which
alone United States Bonds -can be absorbed
and new loans obtained from the people.
PAPER MONET INDISPENSABLE, BUT ITS ISSUE
SHOULD BE BEBTRICTED.
The Government has at its command only
two resources for meeting the expenses o*f
existing war—sale of Its bonds, or the issue
of legal tender Treasury notes. It is notori
ous that very few loans can now be effected
on,terms that would not precipitate financial
ruin. Unless this'can ho remedied in some
way, and a market be provided for United
States bonds, immense additional issues of
legal tenders are unavoidable; and if Con
gress fails to check bank circulation under
existing conditions, the Government paper
must continue to depreciate at a fearful rate.
Already, gold, In your market to-day, com
manded a premium over Government paper
of fifty-four per cent. At this rate we begin
to realize that Don. Robert J. Walker was a
true prophet of evil when he predicted a pre
mium oi sixty per cent. Now look squarely
in the face, without dismay. if you can, his
exhibit of the result which* this condition of
things presents with the irresistible logic of 1
mathematics. At sixty per cent.premium, ho
tells ns, if our yearly expenses reach $700,-
COO,CCO in paper, this would command only
S2£O,OCO,CCO in gold, thus subjecting the Gov
ernment to a'loss of $420,000,000 per annum,
or deducting reasonably for interest saved on
the proceeds of the operation, the net loss
may be staled at $408,800,000 per annum,
from the use of a redundant and, therefore,
depreciated currency. •Still, paper money is
now a necessity. * Gold and silver *are
not in circulation at all. They are
boarded, just as they always have been
and always will be in time of war, and es
pecially of civil war. It is not the issue of
Government paper which has driven specie
out of circulation, but the ota'acc of specie
which has made the legal tender paper a ne
cessity. All history shows that war carries
the precious metals out of circulation, and in
consequence every nation has been compelled
to carry ou its wars by use of paper money.
We arc driven to the same necessity now.
There is no use in mourning the fact; it is
worse than idle to complain of Government
forocccpthigit, and acting accordingly. All
we can do is to throw around the use of tins
paper currency eveiy available guard and
check, keep the amount issued small as pos
sible, and drive out every inferior circulation
which tends to depreciate its value.
MODE OF ELEVATING A DEPRECIATED CCR
RENCV.
It Is in this way that the banking scheme of
Mr. Chase is designed to remedy the evil of a
redundant currency. The local banks circu
lation, now when Government has no control
over it, is largely increasing in volume. The
United States have issued $250,000,000 of
notes, and at the same time the hanks have
expanded their circulation $40,000,000. And
this process, unless checked by legislation, is
likely to go on in arithmetical progression—
for the banks make money by the operation,
and the temptation is very great. Of course
those who maintain that the currency is de
predated by issue of United States paper
money, will not dispute the proposition that
it is still more depreciated by the issue of
many millions additional paper by private in
stitutions, comparatively of little responsi
bility. At present there Is nothing to prevent
private banks from increasing their paper is
sues np to $500,000,000, instead of their pres
ent $107,000,000. la it not clear that if they
are restrained in this, and if every dollar of
private bank circulation is compelled to be
based on United States bonds, the tendency
to depreciation of the only currency in use
(paper) will be reduced in a marked degree?
To deny the proposition would be to say that
a merchant is better off with half a given
amount of business and with sharp, active
competition than he would be if the trade was
entirely in his own hands and upon his own
terms. If there was no money in this coun
try but United States Bank bills, the process
of funding the national debt would be going
on day by day, for whenever their accumula
tion became too large for profitable employ
ment, they would be invested in bonds, and
the Government would have them again to re
issue in payment of current expenses. The
Secretary of the Treasury gives it as his de
liberate judgment that with such a system, be
would carry on the war without the Issue of
another dollar of paper money. He is satis
fied, after the most deliberate investigation,
that nothing but the infiucnce of local bank
circulation prevents absorption by the people
of a national loan, so rapidly as to render any
serious sacrifice quite unnecessary. At pres
ent the United States legal tenders are in a
great measure driven out of circulation by the
superabundance of an inferior issue—local
bank circulation, In exact accordance with the
well-known principle inflnancc, that wherever
there is an Inferior currency, the Litter will
fill nil the channels of circulation, and the su
perior will be hoarded. The absence oi spe
cie from circulation is at once both illustra
tion and proof of the accuracy of this propo
sition.
[From the N. Y. Times, Feb. 2.]
MU. CHASE'S FREE BAXE3NG SYSTEM.
The well-guarded free banking system pro
posed by Mr. Chase, commends Itself In that
itpromiecs the needed currency. Theccntral
idea of that measure is the establishment of
one sound, uniform circulation, of equal value
throughout thcconntiy, upon the foundation
of National credit, combined with private
capital. The proposed clrcula*ing notes will
bear a common impression, be authenticated
by a common authority, be redeemable by the .
private associations issuing them, and secured
by pledge of United States stocks. Receivable
everywhere for public dues, except customs:
they will have an equal value in every part
of the Union. They are effectually
guarded against depreciation—at least
more effectually than any local paper curren
cy. If notes, based entirclv upon United
States Bonds are not safe, what others can be?
"We cannot now have private circulating notes
based on specie: and as the power of the
Government (for itsprcserratlon and mainten
ance) over the resources of the whole coun
try is superior to any other, so its pecnniaiy
responsibility is greater. If the Government
falls, all values are destroyed. While the
Government stands its resources of taxation
are equal to every emergency, illimitable and
unquestionable. No State or private securi
ties, of any kind, therefore, can he so secure,'
in the end, as those of the Nation.
The proposed free bankingsystem then, will
give us a needed national currency nncqoaled
to-day In the element of convenience and
security. Its circulating notes, too, will save
the loss by broken bank bills, computed at
present to be equal to about five per cent, of
the entire issue. They will saave also the
losses now sustained on local currency in the
way of exchange, amounting to from one
eighth of one to one and a quarter per cent, on
every transaction—equal probably to an aver
age of one per cent, on the entire circulation,
which is extracted from the people for the
sole benefit of the bankers. Add to these
considerations the fact that the demand for
United States Bonds as a basis for banking
business under the poposed bill,'will create a
steady market forthem, and enable the Gov
ernment to negotiate loans atfiivorablctenns,
and we sec that the burdens of war have In a
measure been alleviated through a dlmlnni
tion of the rates of interest ora participation
in the profits of circulation, without the least
risk of a great money monopoly.. The sya.
tern provides a national bank, in effect, whose
management is directly in the hands of the
people themselves.
THE GOVERNMENT AND TOE PEOPLE CONSOL-
IDATED.
In addition to all these public advantages
thus set forth, is another of no light Import
—the interest of labor and capital of the
banka, and the Government, and the people,
ore so forcibly stated by Hon. R. J. Walker,
would for the first time become Inseparably
united and consolidated. The people
would have acquired a new and direct interest
in the support of the Government,-because
their currency would depend for safety on the
maintenance of that Government. Each bank
would become a powerful auxiliary for the
overthrow of the rebellion, and would fuel con
strained to lend Us every exertion to that end.
Then just as the banks arc strengthened and
their capital and profits arc Increased, would
be funded more and more Treasury notes, and
the country would bo saved from a redundant
and depreciated currency. While Congress
abdicates itenuthority to regulate the currency
leaving to the States the power to provide the
circulating medium, it places in the hands of
the latter the sinews of war, and clothes them
with a power to overthrow the Government.
If there were no other reason, this of itself
should be ample argument for the prompt
substitution of some National currency in
place of that driven out of circulation by the
war. , S.
LETTER EEOM HON. ROBERT A. WALKER TO
SENATOR SHERMAN.
Washington, Jen. 81,1863.
The following letter was to-day written by
Hon. B. J. Walker to Senator Sherman, as
a member of the Finance Committee of the
Senate. Its suggestions are especially im
portant at this time, and its arguments must
carry conviction;
Washington. Jan. 31,1563.
Ron. John Sherman, United States Senator, &c.;
Dear Sir: I have read your bill to provide
a national currency, and, in compliance with
my promise, suggest for your consideration
the following amendments;
.TmY —In section 19, strike out the limita
tion of these notes, or increase tbe amount to
rst least $300,000,000 now, and an augmenta
tion of ten per cent, every year.
My reasons for this suggested change are
as follows;
The system proposed by you extends over a
period of twenty years, and should contain
provisions based on that consideration, and
calculated to give stability and permanency
to the system. The new circulation should
be adequate to amount to become a substitute
gradually for the* notes of all the present
banks, not by coercion, but by their own
choice, and the preference which the people
would certainly give to the new system. By
table 34, p. 11«, of the eighth census, the con
dition of the banks was as follows
Capital for 1800....
Capital for 1550....
Loans forl6oo
Loans for 1600
Specie for ISM
Specie foMSCO....
, Circulation of 1660.
Circulation of 1850.
Deposits for 1860...
Deposits for 1860...
Thus you will perceive that in iB6O the cir
culation proper of the banks, exclusive of
specie, exceeded $207,000,000, and the circu
lation and deposit reached $4(50,000,000. Tou
•will perceive, also, that from ’SO to ’OO the
Increase of circulation proper exceeded
$53,CC0,C00, and the increase of circulation
and deposits exceededsl7B,ooo,ooo.
Now, by reference to tabic thirty-five of the
eighth census, p. 195, our wealth increased
from 1850 to 1800,120.45 per cent. As wealth
Is the true standard by which our currency
should Increase, our bank circulation, includ
ing deposits, increasing at this rale, would
have been $1,009,(500,000 In 1870, and $3,349,-
490,000 in 18S0. But, if we diminish the
amount at the end of the first decade by one
fourth, the result would be $770,700,000 in
18*0, and $1,763,122,000 in ISBO, specie not
being Included in these tables or calculations.
Bank deposits are equivalent to circulation
in swelling the volume of currency, there
being no difference in that respect, between
bank notes held by individuals In their safes,
and bank notes deposited by them, with the
banks subject to immediate check. If the
new bank notes were limited to $200,000,000,
more than one half the amount would be re
presented by bank deposits, as shown by
table 34.
As the object of your bill Is to substitute
loans taken by the new banka at par for our
present currency, and to fund legal-tenders
in United States stock, and thus arrest tbc
alarming depreciation of these note.*, and re
store the public credit, why limit the extent
to ■which these notes may be funded 'i If it
be said the amount may be increased hereafter,
whv leave this to any future or doubtful con
tingency V Now is the time when it Is Impor
tant to arrest depreciation, and advance the'
National credit, and this cannot be accom
plished to any great extent, with the limita
tion to $.’00,000,000. With such a limitation,
we shall certainly have two bank paper sys
tems, the present and the new system, each
warring against the other; hut in the absence
ot such limitation, the present banks will
gradually, without any injury or convulsion,
transfer their capital to the new system. Sure
ly this Is a most desirable result, and should
not be prevented by any limitation, but, on
the contrarv,encouraged in every proper man
ner. Fully concurring with you as to the im
policy and unconstitutlonality oftho present I
state bank issues, yet I do not desire, nor do
I believe you do, to do any injustice to these
' institutions; but rather to frame sucha bill as
would make it clearly the interest of the old
I hanks to transfer their capital gradually to
the new system.
Experience has shown that there is no dan
ger of too large bank issues, where such re
strictions exist as are found in your bill, and
whore United States stock, with sucha mar
gin as you provide, must he deposited before
receiving the notes. I think, therefore, that
there should he no limitation as to amount.
In any event, these poles cannot he depre
ciated as much as legal-tenders, because they
will be secured by the Government stock,
with a margin ot allcast ten per cent, addi
tional, and vj all the capital of the bank be
sides, under a prior lien. Indeed, so import
ant is this measure deemed by me, that 1 be
lieve its passage would soon be recognized, at
home and abroad, both North and South, as
insuring the speedy overthrow of the rebel
lion. But if Congress adjourn without the
adoption of such a measure, our finances may
he overthrown iu a few weeks or months, be
fore decisive victories arcachievedinthe field,
and thns tempt foreign intervention, increase
the lamentable divisions iu tbc loyal states,
stimulate the South thus to renewed exer
tions, and expose the Union to imminent
peril. I am assured, if the bill pass now,
that new banks under this act. would
be at cnee organized in New Orleans,
which would be a most important step toward
restoring the allegiance of Louisiana and the
whole Southwest. Doubtless such new banks
would also soon be organized in Memphis,
Nashville, Alexandria, Norfolk, Newbem ami
other Southern cities, os, from time to time,
they might be permanency occupied by our
troops. The introduction of such national
banks and currency into the South would
operate as an immense reinforcement to onr
armies in restoring the supremacy of the
Union. *******
Second —The twenty-first section retains
two per cent, of the bonds field by tbc new
banks in lien of the taxes. As these bonds,
by your bill, must exceed the secured circula
tion at least ten per cent., this provision
would moke the tax in this form upon circula
tion, ton per cent, greater than that proposed
in regard to the old banks. Such a discrimi
nation might endanger the success of the new
system. In my opinion the tax on the circu
lation of the old and new banks should be the
same, say two per cent, as you propose, and
tins, as regards the new banks, as fiscal agents
of the Government, should be in lieu of all
other taxation, Stile or National.
Third —In sections forty-four and forty-
I eight, I think St. Louis and Chicago should
be added.
Fourth—As to section forty-nine, I think
Congress should prescribe in this act organ
izing these national hanks, one uniform max
imum rate of interest, taking seven per cent,
which prevails in New Tork. It docs not fol
low (as we now see in New Tork) that so high
a rate would generally be charged. This would
he regulatcdT by the law of supply and de
xn&ndr One of the great powers of the Bank
of England, and of other European banks, Is
to check dangerous Inflations by raising
the rate of Interest on loans* by the
banks, and six per cent here as a
maximum is too low to accomplish this
all-important object. If the rate of Interest
be not uniform, great advantages will be
given to these new banks in some Stales over
others, amounting, In some eases, to nearly
double the rate of interest, thns restricting
the benefit ol extending the new system
equally throuchout the Lulon. In some of
the States a different rate of interest is pre
scribed in different counties. As these new
banks are to be the great holders of United
Stales stock and fiscal accateof the Govern
ment, It is essential thatno State should have
the power fo destroy them or impair their
usefulness by taxation, by regulating the rate
of interest they mar receive, or in any other
way.
All national bank charters heretofore have
provided one uniform rate of interest on loans
made by such banks throughout the Union.
Besides, the rate of seven per cent, would in
sure the speedy success of the new system,
and the gradual transfer to It of the capital
of the present banks.
Fifth—ln scctions7,these new banks should
be made and drcfural to be JUsedl ageuts of Me
Gcnrnnuut. This would place their consti
tutionality beyond question, according to the
principles already settled by the Supreme
Court of the United States. * *
Seventh—Section 20 coniines the lowest de
nomination of notes to be issued by the new
banks, to* $5. This would be well, and even a
higher limitation, when peace shall be re
stored and specie payments resumed. But I
think at present there should be a different
provision. The banks (if any) that will be the
most injured by ihe new system are mainly
the small country banks. To prevent any
such injurious operation, I would give to
banks having a capital not cxceedlng§3oo,ooo,
all the Issue of notes of lower denomina
tion than $5. This would be a vast inducement
to these small banks to transfer their capital
to the new system, thus funding a lanrc
amount of our national currency, under $5.00,
in United States stock. This provision as to
notes under SS.OOshould continue until specie
payment was resumed by the Government,
and, after that period, all paper currency
under $5.00, emanating from any source what
ever, should be positively prohibited by Con
gress. If the present provision as to §5.09 be
retained in the bill wo shall have all the evils
of two conflicting bank systems, the old and
the new; and the notes of the old banks under
§5.00 (mainly.entirely unsecured) will pass
chiefly into the hands of the working classes,
who, above all others, ought to be protected
against losses by bank notes.
California Treasure Going to England
The steamship Sonora sailed from San Fran
cisco a few days since, with $1,250,000 in gold
for England, and only $300,000 for Hew York.
This diversion of gold from New York, is
without doubt the result of the recent capture
of the Ariel by the pirate Alabama. Shippers
do cot like to take the risk of capture and
they thus put their money under the protec
tion. of the English flag.

The opinion of the oldest andbest Informed
citizens is, that there will bo a severe Indian
war on the frontier, next summer. Little
Crow is at Devil’s Lake with plenty of arms
and ammunition, at the head of 3,000 warriors,
having effected on alliance with the Yanktons,
a stronger and more athletic race-thaa the
Sioux; and he professes to believe that he
will be able to sweep the white man as the
prairie fire sweeps off the leaves and grass of
autumn. As soon as grass puts forth in the
spring, he proposes to commence operations
on the frontier, hoping to induce the Chippc
was to join him.
The Chippewas, too, are, in many places,
behaving badly. In Chisago county, accord
ing to the latest advices, they have fired two
or three residences and wounded one man.
The Indians were said to be drunk.
THE LEOISLATUBB.
The action of the Legislature during the
last two or three days lias been confined,
mainly, to subjects of local interest* I notice
a good deal of special legislation in behalf of
counties and towns. There arc some topics,
however, of general interest.
In the Senate, Mr. Smith,from the Commi
ttee on Railroads, to whom was referred the
memorial to Congress for an additional grant
of lands to the Minneapolis and Cedar Valley
Railroad, reported the same hack, and recom
mended its passage.
The bill to amend the law creating a special
Board of Auditors, after various amendments,
and prolonged discussion, was read a third
time, andmssed.
In the House, the memorial to Congress for
the entire removal of all the Indian tribes
from the State of Minnesota, was read a third
time, and passed.
The bill introduced by Mr. Murray, which
will come up in Committee of the Whole,
amending the charter of the city of St. Paul,
provides forthe establishment of a workhouse
and the organization of a chain-gang; so that
offenders mavbe forced to work on inestreets.
It provides also, for an Assessor. Street Com
missioner, and City Surveyor, and contains a
prohibition of the issue of any more bonds at
a higher rate of interest than seven per cent.
A WALIOXAHT DISEASE.
A severe disease is prevailing in town
among tho children and youth, supposed lo
he a malignant form of measles. It is called
by the people Indian measles, and is now* pre
vailing among the Indians confined at Fort
Sneillng, and at Mankato. Mr. Thayer, of
the Prtsx office, who escaped from his home
on the frontier, with his family, at the time of
the massacre, has lost three of his children
within a few days by this terrible disease, and
a fourth one Is apparently at the point of
death. This scourge is laid to the clarge of
the “ Poor Indian, and adds, if possible, to
the intensity of hate and execration against
them. Their removal seems to be an abso
lute necessity, for their own takes, as well as
for the welfare of the whites.

Xlic First Regiment ol* Sonth
Carolina Colored Volunteer*.
Gen. Saxton has transmitted the following
to the War Department:
ÜBAuronT, S. C., Jan. 85,1563.
Hon. Edwin M. Stanton. Secretary of War;
Dear Sib :—1 have the honor to report that
the organization of the first regiment of
South Carolina volunteers Is now completed.
The regiment is light infantry, composed of
ten companies of about eighty-six men each,
armed with muskets and otfieered by white
men. In organization, drill, discipline, and
morale, this regiment, for the length of time
It has been in service, is not surpassed by any
white regiment in this department. Should it
ever be its good fortune to get into action, 1
have no fear bntil will win Its way to the con
fidence of those who are willing to recognize
courage and manhood, and vindicate the wise
policy of the Administration, in putting these
men into the field, and giving them a chance
to strike a blow for the country and their own
liberty. In no regiment havel everseeu duty
performed with so much cheerfulness and alac
rity; and as sentinels, they arc peculiarly vigi
lant. I have never seen, In any body of men,
such enthusiasm and deep-seated devotion to
their officers as exists in this; they will
surely go wherever they arc led. Everyman
is a volunteer, and seems fully persuaded of
the importance of his service to his race. In
the organization of this regiment I have la
bored under difficulties which mteht
have discouraged one who had
less faith in the wisdom of the
measure; but lam glad to report that tbc
experiment is a complete success. My belief
is, that when we get a footing on the main
land, regiments may be raised, which will do
more than any now in service to put an cud
to this rebellion.
I have sent the regiment on an expedition
to the coast of Georgia, the result of which I
shall report lor your information, as soon sis
it returns. I have the honor, also, to report
that I have commenced the organization of
the second regiment, which is to be com
manded by Colonel Montgomery.
I am. sir, with great respect,
Tourobedient servant,
R. Saxton, Brigadier General.
What nu Ixttliana General
Tltiulc*.
The following letter was received, a few
days since, from an Indiana General now serv
ing in the army of the Southwest. It speaks
for itself:
Dexr Sir—l have read, with feelings of
shame, of mortification and contempt, the
proceedings of the Democracy of Indiana, our
noble Shite. I write this morning to assure
you that the loyal citizens of Indiana neednot
fear the adhesion to treason, or the encour
agement of disloyal sentiments by her brave
troops. Their devotion to the glorious cause
of liberty has been shown on too many battle
fields fur any traitor ever dare to hope for
sympathy.
‘Meet the traitors boldly! Let Indiana be
the first State to prove, by hanging, that she
is yet true to her plighted filth to maintain
the Union!
