In the House yesterday, the Illinois

of which its friends speak hopefully.

that British officers seek commands In

commissions to lead our black allies. It is
only the home Copperheads who arc dis
gusted, and they proportionately as they
understand the new dangers threatening
Ihtir Southern masters.

Fpcch.l dispatch in another column freshly
attests the zeal which actuates Gov. Mor

welfare of the soldier, and the soldier’s

The two measures lie now urges should
be warmly seconded by loyal Indiaulans,
and emulated by the Executives and peo

legislature, in which Gov. Morton puts
forward a simple and feasible plan for the
assumption by the State of all the evils of
niTcars in the pay of the soldiers, is gen
erous. and better than generous, it is just.
It proposes that the State pay the troops
cf Indiana, through the U. S. Paymasters,
ever}* tb.lv days, from the State Treasury,
leaving the State Treasurer to settle with
the Federal Government for the sums so
advanced. Coupled with this is a State
allotment system, by means of which, on
allotment cards signed hy officers and sol
diers. County Treasurers in all parts of the
State will pay out the allotted sums direct
ly iulo the hands of the soldier’s family.
This should become a law, and a cheer of
gratitude will run along the lines of In

they and theirs at home are faithfully

to the people, Gov. Morton asks Indianions

Washington, Feb. o.—Mr. Stevens’ speech,
in closing the debate on the Negro Regiment
bill, was of unusual power, though, as usual,
the Republicans complain that nc did them
about as much harm as good. His retort on
Wadsworth was peculiarly savage. Ho had
been speaking ot “the distinguished gentle
man from Kentucky.’’ Mr. Wadsworth asked
if he referred to him, apparently desiring to
correct the statement he was making. ‘‘Oh,
no,” said Stevens, “I referred to Hr. Critten
den, whom I always delight to designate as
the distinguished gentleman from Kentucky,
hecuuf* he it dittiuguuhed."
Iu the course of his speech, Mr. Stevens
brought out a terribly damaging fact against
Gen. McClellan. He sold he stated from facts
within his own knowledge, that McClellan
had as persistently disobeyed the orders of
Lieut. Gen. Scott, in the earlier part of this
war, as recent developments showed ho had
disobeyed the President, at a later period.

Indianapolis, 7nd.. Feb. 6, 1563.
The Govemon sent a message to both
baanchcs of the Legislature this rooming,
urging them to adopt a plan which he sub
mitted, to provide means for the prompt pay
ment of Indiana troops every sixty days. He
proposes that the money be advanced to the
Federal paymasters every sixty days, the
Government to reimburse the State as soon
thereafter as possible. It also provides that
any officer or soldier may, by means of an allot
ment card, assign any portion of his pay to
' his famiiy or friends in this Stile, and that
they may draw the same from the State Trea
surer through the Treasurer of the county in
which they may reside, or allow it to remain
in the Slate Treasury as a deposit for safe
keeping. The plan is quite simple and would
result in incalculable benefit to the cause and
relieve, to a very great extent, the suffering
among the families of our gallant boys now
in the field.
It was referred to the Committee on Ways
and Means, without debate.
The Senate passed the morning in the dis
cussion of some judicial question, but could
not raise a quorum this afternoon.
The House passed tho morning in tho in
troduction of bills of a local character,

speeches to prove that the fifiy Democratic
members of the House were not traitors.
Col. Wilder's brigade is now at Nashville

meal and dried fruits for the use
of sick and wounded Indiana troops

up, and chipped to Win, Hanuamcn, Presi

Barnes away like cobwebs and annihilated the

An uneasy feeling prevails all circles as to
the effect of the alleged raising of the block
ade at Charleston. Tho way to escape these
difficulties would be to cut the Gordian knot
by taking Charleston. Doubts, however, are
still cast on the whole story. It seems that
uo rebel papers the nest day make the slight
est mention of the afialr, although other dis
patches show that they bad telegraphic com
munication with Richmond.
On Monday there were certainly two lines
of blockadera found at the entrance to Charles
ton when the rebel rams came forth. It is
supposed at the Navy Department that the
outer line was not touched, it being seven
miles from smooth water, and 100 far for
the rams to venture.
The New York dallies of this morning dis
cuss the question in its legal bearings, and
unitedly affirm that the blockade is not raised
by temporary interruption, whether volun-
tary or by superior force, except during tho
actual time of interruption.

The steamer Adeline has just-arrived from
Vicksburg. Sbe le.fl Uie fleet ptjll opposite
the city. A terrible snow stem ’ia in pro
gress. The ram Queen of the West ran the
blockade aud braved the rebel batteries, on
Monday morning, at daylight. Over 100
heavy siege guns belched forth their contents
upon her as she steamed swiftly past. The
noise of cannonading was terrific. A rebel
boat also opened firenpon the Queen, which
the Queeu returned, and crippled the rebel
steamer. The Queen then passed to the foot
of the canal, and there stayed until 1 p. m.,
when she left for the point below. A lino of
lower batteries then opened upon her. The
Queen went through in safety—mobody hurt.
It is a feat, the accomplishment of which
should make Capt. name stand
among the best- and bravest Union officers.
The Queen, at the lower butteries, was under
fire fur three-quarters of an hour.

There is but little here new to-day, except

go past the rebel fortifications i)uthe Yazoo.
This will he finished in a few days, as there

We have advices from ourflecl at Vicksburg
to Sunday afternoon. Preparations for a great
demonstration were in progress* The water
is running through Farragut’s ditch, or canal,
as it is called, at a slow rate. It is about five
feet wide. Efforts are making to deepen
it. It Is about one mile and a half long, and
only about half of it is commauded by the ene

Steam dredging machines mve been sent
for, with which It is proposed 4o deepen the
canal. \
Preparations are making to rjm the block

already run the enemy’s batteries, and was at
the mouth of .the canal, but th(Yreport is not
confirmed. There has been no indications of
success from Port Hudson. i
Sickness among our troops ‘still continues.

Special Order No. l’.—Of the eighty spiked
puis on the Island, seven, with all necessary im
plements are to bo selected by Capt. John A. Good

immediately unspiked and properly mounted In
the point designated at the inspection. Besides
ihcpc seven heavy guns, the Captain will retain
the 0-pounder brass field gnu for hailing boats.
Col. Bissell of the engineer regiment, will take
the balance of the gnns, seventy-two carriages and
other Government property of any value for mili

The steamboat Sam Young may take as much of
the ordnance stores as she can carry. The restwill
be shipped on a boat to be sent for that special pur
pose. Col. Biased will leave a commissioned offi

the embarkation.
Lieut. John Cayton, Quartermaster, will prepare
a complete list of all property transferred to Col.
Bissell at this post, audwill make requisition for
the ammunition required for guns remaining on
the Island.
The disposition made in the above order
places the famous Island No. ID once more in
a complete state of defense against any at

ordnance stores now strewn over the island
will be made available and of great service in

Seizure of Contraband Cotton,

Matters Military—Cotton Burning-
Guerillas, &0., &o.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune,]
Hmmns, Feb. 5, via Cairo, Feb. 6,1563.
Thomas H. Yeatman, Special Agent of the
Treasury Department, to-day, seized 10S bales
and thirty-seven bags of cotton brought up
from below Helena in violation of special or
ders. The cotton Is said to be the property
of Compton & Ranger; but rumor says that
high military authorities are part owners, and
Gorman is mentioned.
Certainly Gorman's skirts have long home
the imputation of a secret co-partnership
with Ranger, a Jew, owning the steamer Ev
ansville, and Col. Compton, who runs that
craft. Certainly, also,the Evansville has been
notoriously the recipient of trading facilities,
under Gorman’s special orders, denied to
other steamers. The Government may gain
by looking into Gorman’s gormandizing ope
rations in cotton.
J. E. Mqtriman will probably be appointed
our postmaster.
LiQut. Whiiden, of Burbrldgo’sstall;who was
mentioned in the official rcpoit of the Arkan
sas Post afialr for gallant conduct on the
field, has been detached for duty on the signal
corps. . ‘ ,
Tho Argus of the 4th has the following re
garding guerillas: Guerilla work is still
progressing at Fort Pillow, and the section of
country back of that point. On Saturday
night, a band of these gentry commanded by
a men named Cushman, of Landerdde county,
numbering only fifteen or twenty, stopped
two wagons four miles back of the fort, and
burned eight or ten bales of cotton being
taken to the river. .They turned the teams
and owners back.
Ou Friday night the same party overhauled
a raft containing twenty-five bales, crossing
the Hatchie River, ordered the men accom
panying it home, and destroyed the cotton
and raft. This occurred about ten miles from
the fon.
A cotton buyer from Indiana was captured
by guerillas a few miles from the Mississippi,
in the same neighborhood, one day last week,
and relieved of a supply of greenbacks.
Cushman has been operating in that portion
of West Tennessee for several months, and
thus far baa received no check. He is a guer
illa In a generally accepted sense of the term,
and has destroyed a Isirge quantity of cotton
during the past three months.
Cairo, Feb. G.—The steamer Hillman has
just arrived from Memphis with yesterday
mornings dates. They contain nothing of
importance. The Artfus says that $13,000,000
In greenbacks bad arrived, and is to be used
In payingthe soldiers, and for other Govern

The steamer Kenton had arrived from
Helena, but brought nothing later from

New York, Feb. o.—The steamer Roanoke,
from New Orleans the 2Sth and Havana the
Ist. arrived this evening.
New Orleans news is very meagre.
The J)dta says accounts from the rebel
army at Port Hudson and elsewhere shown
most deplorable state of affairs among them.
The men only being kept from mutiny by
promises of peace during thirty days. (Con

been shot while endeavoring to raise men.
The regular Havana letter of the 31st con
tains Vera Cruz dates of the Slth, but nothing

without which the French do not hope to take
Puebla. Smallpox Is abating. Nothing re
liable relative to the Alabama or Florida.
It is rumored that the Alabama had re
ceived four shots Irom the Uattcras, and that
she has arrived at Port Royal, Jamaica,
whence she took her prisoners, and where she
will stop to repair.
The British gunboat Rinaldo arrived at Ha

issued a proclamation on the 20th declaring
Galveston, Sabine Pass and the whole coast of
Texas under actual blockade, and Naming all

of the pirate Florida is received from Havana.
New Yoke, Feb. (5.—A letter to Gen. Ham

says a million dollars worth of cotton arc sold
there monthly, ail of which is sent back to

A letter from tliclL S. Consul at Matamo

river a force of 1,300 Mexicans, half of whom
are well armed and mounted, who have been
driven from Texas. Having been joined by a
few Americans, they keep the frontier as far
as San Antonio in a ferment. A Mexican Gen

Consul on the subject.

Mr. NESMITH of Oregon offered a resolu
tion requesting the Secretary of War to fur
nit-h to the Senate the report and maps of
Capt. John Mullen, who was engaged in the
construction of a military road from Walla
Walla to Fort Benton.
The Committee of Conference on the de

The House refused the consideration of the
Illinois and New York ship canal bill.
Mr. OLIN of New York said this measure
had long been a subject of discussion and re
flection, and its provisions In a great degree '
•wore 'well understood by the members, nev
ertheless he would now notice the persistent
efforts made by its enemies to prejudice the
bill. A report had been authorized by the
Committee on Naval Affairs, and he claimed
the responsibility of saying that, in every
material fact, it was a tissue of misrepresen
tations and misstatements.
Mr. F. A. CONKLING of N. T., rose to a
question of order. The language was in
decoronsand insulting to a committee of this
The SPEAKER overruled the point on the
nround that there was nothing personal in
the remark.
Mr. OLIN withdrew the remark, neverthe
less he believed that misstatements had been
made in the report, and that there were mis
representations of facts, was without ques
tion. The author of the report knew it was
misrepresentation to say the canals could not
be enlarged.
Mr. VOORHIES said if he had before had
anv doubt of the propriety of the passage
of" this measure, It had been deepened
and confirmed after Mr. Olin’s speech.
Such stupendous Internal improvements
were opposed to the principles of his party.
It seemed that every measure intended to
spend moneyand bestow patronage met the
approbation of the Republican side of the
Mr. ARNOLD of HI. briefly explained the
importance of the proposed improvement.
With one mouth for commerce at New Orleans
and another at New York, the destinies of
the Republic were one.
Mr. KELLOGG of HI. answered an objec
tion of Mr. Voorhies as to the unnavigablo
condition from the mouth of the Illinois to
St. Louis. He was assured by a responsible
and intelligent authority, that with a few
slight exceptions, there had been a depth
of six feet or water and generally more.
Mr. DAWE, of Mass., saying that he would
vote for the bill, remarked that New England
would not ask the gentleman from Indiana*
(Mr. Voorhies) on what terms she would re
main in the Union.
Mr. HOLMAN ©find, opposed the bill. Ho
had rcachcdt’hc conclusions of the Naval Com
mittee, tb'at this work was not intended for
