THURSDAY, MARCH 12.1853.
BY NO KEANS-NEW.
Some of our contemporaries in New
York, give free expression to their surprise
that the West should, all at once, become
clamorous about the tolls of the New York
Canals, and urgently demand their reduc
tion. This is on a par with the general
Understanding of the whole Subject, that
Ihe metropolitan journals have evinced
Since the Legislature of Illinois determined
to send a deputation of citizens to Canada
to lay before the Provincial Government
the advantages that would follow the en
largement of the Canadian canals. The
truth Is, that the West has been complain
ing ever since the New York canal tolls
Were increased; and the representations
tmd remonstrances on the subject have
been eo frequent and so strong, that the
New York Chamber of Commerce, as long
ago as December, —before the meeting of
our Legislature,—felt Itself compelled to
give the subject attention; and in a report
made to that body, it was demonstrated
tb»t- grain ought to be sent from Chicago
lo the sea-board at rates so much below
those now charged, that the West would
gave Sixteen Millions of Dollars per annum
thereby 1 So, the surprised and astounded
journalists, whoso knowledge of what has
been passing under their own noses is so
imperfect, may blame themselves for not
bearing the growls that the West has
littered—not the West for bearing her bur
dens in silence. And if now they will only
use their newly acquired knowledge for
Ihe purpose of doing justice to that vast
country upon the prosperity of which go
much of the prosperity of New York, and
to much of the foreign trade of the whole
Depublic depend, we shall have little fur
ther cause to complain.
A KEASCBE OF LOYALTY.
The conciseness and force with which
John Tan Buren in his late New York
speech expressed a fact that all loyal men
have-felt, are worthy of remark. He was
speaking of the law conferring extraordi
jiaiy powers on the Preadent, for the con
duct of the war:
I can tctt well understand tow, if I sympa
thize-with the rebcllion-if I deemed that this
irar should fail—l could spend hours and
columns In picking flaws in lids act* But If I
■believe that substantial justice requires—that
the great-ends of prosecuting the war demand
•—that the whole power of the Government
shall he placed by the Congress of the United
States in the President of the United States, I
will bow in. silence to the act, whether I ap
prove of it or not {Prolonged cheers.]
Unconsciously perhaps Mr. Tan. Baren,
in defining his own position, has establish
ed a rule by which the loyalty ot all mem
bers of his party may be measured—a rule
that will be found to have few exceptions.
Given by a man who has only censure for
the Government, and, no matter what his
protestations of fidelity to the Union cause,
be may be set down as rotten at the core.
Our readers know many such—men who
would resent as an insult the charge that
they are secessionists, or that they are sym
pathizers'with rebellion in any but its
wordy phases, but whose influence, what
ever it is, goes whol)yJoLtha-e3emles"of"
couiui^'-^o^ victory satisfies, no
policy pleases, no hope encourages
them. To rail against the con
stituted- . authorities, to constantly
express fear of usurpation, to find fault
with legislation, to undervalue the public
credit and currency, to depreciate our mil
itary advantages, to utter doleful prophe
cies of evil things to happen, seems to be
Iheir province. For each and every one
of these offences, there is a disloyal reason
—a reason not avowed, perhaps not ac
knowledged, bntalive and operative never
theless. To a greater or less extent, they
sympathize with the rebellion. The con
viction that this war should fail and ought'
to stop, is that which impels them. Hr.
Tanßuren saw the truth, and well ex
pressed it He is a Democrat and knows
his men.
COURT OF CLAMS.
The confirmation of E. Peck, Esq., of
this city, as one of the Judges of the Court
of Claims at "Washington, will give great
satisfaction to his friends in Illinois. In
timately acquainted with affairs, a sound
lawyer, and a gentleman of unlmpeachcd
Integrity, he will do honor to the place that
Las been conferred upon him.
Conscription.
The military laws of nations arc a pretty
accurate barometer of the civilization which,
obtains amongst them. Where the necessary
despotism, upon which oil such laws are
founded. Is tempered by humanity, and a
reasonable consideration for the welfare of
the soldier, we may predicate a general high
tone in the civility of the State; and where
these laws arc absolute, and unmitigated in
their severity, we may be equally sure that
society Is very low down lu the gamut both
of intelligence and morality.
The great Governments of Europe—great,
that is to say, in the numbers which they
TuicJ and in the vast physical extent of their
dominions—have gradually, during the slow
process ol centuries, purged their military
laws of many cruel and barbarous features,
not only with respect to enlistments and con
scription, but to punishments also, which
lu olden times often amounted to the extreme
penalty of death for very trifling offences.
A comparison of the various conscript laws
of Europe with our own will show how much
ours exceed theirs in forethought for our
people, and how much we have to be thank
ful for.
The Code de la Conscription of France forms
a part of the French system of Jurisprudence,
and furnishes the most complete body of re
gulations for working that tremendous sys
tem of oppression.
It was first published In the form of a gen*
oral lair, by the Council of Ancients, In 1793.
It subsequently underwent some slight modi
fications, without changing its character,
howercr, in any important particular.
By the law of the Directory, attributed to
Carnot, all Frenchmen are pronounced sol
diers, and whenever the country is supposed
to be In danger, they arc all liable to be sum
moned to lie defense. But In ordinary com
motions, the army is supplied by conscrip
tion.: :The legislative body, at the suggestion
ofthe'Executive Government, determines the
requisite number of conscripts. The contin
gent of each Department is regulated by the
law, in proportion to the population; and it
ia subdivided, by the same rule, amongst the
districts, cantons and municipalities. All
Frenchmen between the full age of twenty
and twenty-five arc liable to the conscription.
At the drawing, by lot, of those who arc to
form the qnota of the district, those who
draw the numbers below the amount of the
quota, are taken for active service. Absen
tees' not presenting themselves within a
month after the drawing, are declared and
pursued os deserters.
Besides the contingent for active -service,
the law requires an equal number to form the
conscription of the reserve, who arc to march
‘ only in cases of emergency; which emergen
cy, however, during war, has almost always
been found to exist These are well organ
ised and'carcfully disciplined.
A third class Is also balloted for, equal to
one-fourth of the whole contingent, who are
called the supplemental conscript, be
ing destined to fill up the vacancies that may
occur before Junction at headquarters. Pa
rents are held responsible for the absence of
their children, until they can produce official
statement of their death. A health officer,
convicted of famishing a false certificate of
infirmity, is subject to five years imprison
ment in irons. Conscripts, away from duty
twenty-four hours, are treated as deserters
The penalty for desertion is public or hard
labor, the punishment of the ball or death.
The ball punishment is very severe, the ball
being made of iron—eight pounds in weight
—and fastened to the leg. The deserter first
hears his sentence read, on his knees, and Is
condemned to ten hoars hard labor daily,
and in the interval of rest Is chained in soli
tary confinement. The duration of punish
ment is •ten years!- aggravated by every mark
•of ignominy in dress, and appearance; and In
cases of contumacy, U Is prolonged beyond
ten years, with an additional ball fastened to

TVomotom In the French army never takes I
1 •&*•« by purchase, and not often by special
cndcr. Seniority at present determines more
than one half the appointments.
Tint the military system of Prussia, how
e'er, is admirably adapted to the exigencies
of war and the maintenance df the govern*
ment, there can he hot little room for ques-
Hen. When a given number of troops is
wanted, the order Is given to the proper offi
cers throughout the kingdom, and If more
arc raised than the necessity demands, they
ate passed over to the next year’s account,
or to the next requirement. Every soldier, 1
as we said, with the exception alluded to.
Is compelled to serve three years whether in
peace or war. At the expiration of this time
he Is allowed to go home, and resume his
civil avocations, but Is still a soldier; and for
five years after bis three years service has ex
pired, he is at any time liable to becalled Into
active service. Once a soldier, always a sol
dier, is the law of Prussia. For even after
this five year’s term 1s over, each man is com
pelled to enter the Landwhr (militia), and
there.ho remains until ho is forty years of age
—the whole Landwhr being called out every
two or three years for discipline and review.
After the age of forty, he Is still liable, in
case ofinvaslon, to serve in the Landsturm, a
sort of reserve militia. A volunteer, born in
Prussia, who enters the service voluntarily
fy-fonl he is twenty years old is required to
serve but two years. With these exceptions,
the Prussian law is absolute, and no conscript
con provide a substitute. The conscription
code of Prussia had its origin inwhat is called
the War of Freedom against Napoleon, which
look place between the years 1813 and 1515.
The soldiers who only serve one year, after
they have passed their examination, become
Officers in the Zandteehr; and those who enlist
as volunteers before the age of twenty, are al
lowed the privilege of choosing their arm of
service, whether cavalry or Infantry, provided
they arc physically strong enough to perform
its duties.
The military laws of Russia and Austria are
based upon a cruel despotism, and arc pretty
much alike in their provisions and requisi
tions. In the former country, every able
bodied man Is required to serve in the army
for twenty-five years. Substitutes are per
mitted, hut it is so expensive to obtain them
that very few avail themselves of the privi
lege. Conscription is rigidly enforced, and
when the Emperor has decided as to the num
ber of men he requires, the draft is made upon
•the estates of the nobles, according to the
number of serfs employed upon them, and
this number, as well as the age of each per
son, is founded upon the records of the church
registers.
The Emperors both of Russia and Austria
being absolute in their authority, can change
their conscript laws to suit their convenience
or glut their malice and revenge. The late
attempt to enforce these laws by Russia upon
the inhabitants of Poland is a proof of this,
and shows, inits results, how obnoxious the
laws were to the entire people, and how deep
ly rooted and implacable was their hatred
their oppressors. The will of the Emperor
decided In this ease, not that the draft should
be equally enforced throughout the conquered
country, but that it should fall upon those
classes'who by their rank, position and Intel
llg< nee, were the natural leaders of the peo
ple ; the object being to clear Poland of all
persons who might he presumed favorable to
insurrection and a new war for freedom and
nationality.
. The military affairs of Austria —ard
. -PgS^uctcd' oy a separate Department, the
rulers of which are responsible to the Empe
ror alone, and his will, like that of his broth
er of Russia, is the final law.
In England the army proper is maintained
by volunteer enlistments, although the con
scription—or ballot —is established by law for
the militia, should volunteers be wanting.
The Militia and Yeomanry (Cavalry) regi
ments, and Rifle Clubs, constitute an im
mense army of reserve, apart from the stand
ing army of the country. In times of war—
except in thenavyservice—Englandhasmost
ly employed foreign mercenaries to fill her ar
mies, rather than resort to the draft.
The Republic of Switzerland is based upon
the military service of every one of its citi
zens, without any exception save for disloyal
ty, or crime. Lieutenant Colonel Rutishauser
of the sSth Illinois volunteers, who has served
twenty years in the Swiss army, and has com
manded a regiment in the present war
against the rebels —says, in a communication
’ received from him, that the spirit of liberty
is cultivated in the schools of Switzerland,
and that bojt Iroiu tivclrc to eighteen years
of age, arc drilled in military exercises and
tactics. At stated periods, these young men
of the schools are mustered into companies
and regiments, often of many thousands of
men, and, led by a General, perform all the
evolutions of a regular army.
Beside this governmental defense of the
land, there Is another force of immense value
to the State, although it is strictly private,
and under no military control. This is called
the Society of Sharpshooters, These societies
exist In every locality, and are sustained, to
some extent, by prizes given by the govern
ment to the most proficient marksman.
A great stimulus to the enterprise of arms
is to he found in the yearly Festivals, where
thousands of dollars in money, and equip
ments arc distributed to the most efficient
soldiers. At these generous holidays, all per
sons, no matter of what rank or politics, are
present, and lose all their differences in their
enthusiasm for Fatherland.
The system, says our authority, of leading
and commanding the Swiss army is entirely
different from that of America. No man can
be an officer nnin he has served as a soldier,
and is thoroughly instructed in military
knowledge. No Lieutenant can become the
commander of a company without passing a
strict examination as to his competency; nor
canhcbccome aField officer nntllhchas served
in the lower grades, and passed his examina
tion.
Home Questions.
The Albany Journal calls attention to the
signficant fact that the Rome a De
mocratic organ of the Copperhead species,
takes the Utica Observer , another Democratic
oigan, to task for pretending to be in favor of
the war. The latter having insisted that the
Democratic party was in favor of saving the
Union, even by fighting for it, the Sentintl
wickedly asks these pointed questions:
** In favor of the war,” are we, neighbor?
Then how is it that we nominated Thomas
Seymour in Connecticut—tliat we elected
James UT. Wall to the United States Senate
from New Jersey—that In every State where
we have had tho Legislature, resolutions in
favor of peace have been passed? How is it
that our party in Congress vote solid against
every one of Mr. Lincoln’s “ war measures ?”
The Scutind is evidently disgusted with the
tist-aud-ioose policy of its friends. It can’t
understand how they can at once favor “this
■wicked war,” and yet place obstacles in the
way of Us successful prosecution. And its
perplexity is natural.

of the Union cause. Pormany years he has

Union Victory nt DeEalb.
The municipal election was held in DeKalb
on the Oth Inst., and resulted In the election
of the unconditional Union ticket. The Cop
perheads felt happy in the morning, and cer
tain of carrying their ticket, but when the
ballots were counted, “ something was heard
to drop,” and they shrunk away greatly dis
appointed. The worst fact to them was that
they didn’t know who struck them.

three or four weeks since, from noble Mary
Moore, who resides in Jefferson county, In

tional Canal Convention at Chicago, on the
first Tuesday in June next. It is signed by
Mr. Bates, the Attorney General; Hon. F. P.
Blair, Sen., some twenty Senators and eighty
members of the House. I have reason to be
lieve that this call will be responded to, to an
extent perhaps never before equalled. There
is now a strong reaction in favor of enlarging
the canals, and I believe if a rote could have
been had within the lost three or fonr days,
the bill for the purpose could have beenpassed.
Ihave never for one moment doubted our final
success. 1 know that Chicago will welcome,
with Western hospitality, the hundreds of
delegates who will gather from all the loyal
States, in favor of connecting, by a Ship
Canal, the Valley of the Mississippi and the
Atlantic. Please suggest to the Common
Council, Board of Trade, Mercantile Associa

able arrangements for the reception of the
Convention. Very respectfully yours,

Copperheads Stealing: Arms.
. MoxaocTU, Warren Co., 111., Marchs.lß63.
Editors Chicago Tribane:
One or two cavalry companies were organ
ized in this county, some years since, and fur
nished with swords and pistols by the State.
The companies gradually died out, and the
arms were left in the possession of the men.
At the commencement of the rebellion, they
were collected by the Sheriff, under orders
from headquarters. The _sTyordg m»rft.-4br."
wardcdjp BpriUgflCl37and~the pistols, being
of the old flint lock, pattern, were, to the
number of perhaps 150, boxed up and de
posited in the office of the Sheriff, then a Re
publican, who turned them over to his suc
cessor in office, who,' unfortunately, is a full
blooded, flat-headed Copperhead, and “ great
on escapes.”
Oh the night of the 4th, the Sheriff’s office
was left open, or ready to be opened, and the
pistols were stolen for the use of his brother
Copperheads, who, with himself and Henry
Clay Dean, are bitterly opposed to a draft.
People would be disposed to blame the Sher
iff, but have come to the conclusion that it is
constitutional with him, and that he can't
help it. Prisoners arrested, prisoners in the
jail, pistols and arms in his custody, all and
everything appear to slip through hia hands
in an unaccountable slippery manner. "Wc
suppose it is all right and Democratic,'but
not having had a Democratic Sheriff before
for a long time, wc have not got used to It
yet; and it appears strange,and is causing
some remarks, complimentary and otherwise,
in reference to this new kind of joking and
running “ rigs” on the State property, and
the Sheriff's official duty. Long-Bow.
Copperhead Treason.
A Copperhead meeting, held at the village
of Bagdad, Areola precinct, Douglas county,
111., recently adopted, among others, the fol
lowing resolutions:
Pitdlted* That • ♦ ♦ we horebj de
liberately pledge ourselves, one to another, that
we will not render support to the present Admin
istration in carrying on hie abolition cru&adc
against the South; that we will resist to the death
au attempts to draft any of onr citizens into the
army; and that we will not permit any arbitrary
arrests to be made by the minions of the Adminis
tration.
Itefolved* That wo regard the Emancipation
Proclamation as the final blow that has destroyed
all hopo of a reconstruction of the Union ns it
was; we also view it as the entering wedge which
will ultimately divide the Middle and Northwest
ern States from our mischief-making, puritanical,
fanatical New England brethren, and finally culmi
nate in the formation of a Democratic Republic
out of the Middle, Northwestern and Southern
States. And for this we are thankful.
And yet these men object to being called
traitors. If they carry out their intentions,
as declared in tho first resolution, there is not
an honest court in Illinois or any other State
in the Union that would not consign them to
the halter, if they tailed In meeting their de
serts by means of balls and bayonets. In
Parte they resolved not to furnish another
man nor another dollar for the prosecution of
the war. When the conntiy is engaged in a
contest for its very existence—when thous
ands upon thousands of martyred patriots are
being sacrificed upon its altar, for the salva
tion of civil liberty—and men will get to
; ’ether and pass such resolutions, they brand
iicmsclves as traitors, and deserve 5 traitor’s
doom. ■ It Is no wonder that the soldiers hate,
despise and detest them: it is no wonder that
they express their willingness and even de
sire to turn the mouths of their cannon and
the points of their bayonets upon them, and
exterminate traitors North as well as rebels
South; and it is no wonder that the feeling
among loyal men at home should be so bitter
against the vipers that are trying to sting the
Government that has warmed them Into life
and prosperity.—fbrte {lU.)Jkacou.
X Sensation Knocked in the
Head.
[From the Cincinnati Gazette, 10th.]
Some days ago, a friend stated to us that
George D. Prentice, Esq., had passed through
this city en route for Europe; that while here
he stated that he had received alctterfromhis
son in the rebel army, Informing him that a
powerful annywasbelngoiganlzca forthe in
vasion oi Kentucky and the North, and advis
ingjhim (Mr. Prentice) to seek a place of
gaiety. In accordance 'with this advice,
Mr. P, badconvcrtcd most of his prop
erty Into monep, had purchased gold
at ITS, and entered upon a journey lor a
foreign country. Subsequently ho saw this
report In the Chicago Times, telegraphed from
Cincinnati. We then concluded to make some
inquiry about the matter. Meeting our
friend from whom we first heard the report,
we asked him his authority. He told us, and
at the same time promised to see the gentle
man and ascertain his authority. This prom
ise he fulfilled, and gentlemen Nos. 1 and 3
proceeded together to gentleman No. S. The
fatter stated that his authority was gnono
other than the Cincinnati correspondent of
the Chicago Timet ; and this individual gave
as bis authority the managing editor oi the
JZnqtnrer. Having thus traced the report to the
JZnguirrr oflice (the correspondent ol the
Chicago Times is an attachce of that establish
ment), wo concluded the matter was not
worth further inquiry, and we had dismissed
the subject, when the following card from
Mr. Prentice, published in the New "York
Tribune met our eye:
A CARD.
To the Editor of the New York Tribune :
Sm: The author of a letter In yourpaper to-day*
f.ive Hint I am on my way to Europe, that last Sat
urday 1 paid ITS for cold In Louisville. and that I
believe the rebels will have complete possession of
Kentucky during the present month. Please afford
me space in your columns to say that 1 have no
thoughts ofgolng to Europe, that I was not in Lou
isville last Saturday, and never bought cold at ITS
in my life; and that X hare at no time believed that
the rebels would have complete possession of Ken
tucky during this month or any other month, Z
mav have said that if, as some claimed, Kentucky
was invaded by a rebel force of 40,000 men, they
might overrun the State, unless the Federal troops
should be reinforced; but in the first place, I have
not believed the invading force was even a tenth
part of 40.000, and In the second place, I have not
seriously doubted that any needed re-enforcements
would be forthcoming.

would soon become as black as Ink here,
where red brick and sawed stone are the fa
vorite building materials, and where white
paint turns to a smoky-colored gray In less
than twenty-four hours after It is put on.
The people all appear to have cast-iron-look
ing countenances, every man you meet, and
even some of the fairer sex, partaking more
or less of tbe square and angular expression
I have always noted as being peculiar to a
community where the mechanical genius
rules. 1 am told it is common for ladies,
when they meet in the streets, to examine
each other's theca for particles of the soot
which are flying about everywhere, forcing an
entrance under the windows and doors, &c.
It la looked upon as one of the amenities of
life here, on the part of the ladies, to wipe off
the disfiguring specks from the features; and
nothing is more common than to see a couple
: of well dressed females performing this act of
! mutual charity In the streets. As for the
gentlemen, they look upon it as a waste of
lime, and turn over their begrimmed coun
tenances to to the barbers, who are compelled
to do double duty, and in every case to lather
and scrub, the entire face, and even neck, as
well as the chin.
MRS. LOTTY. HOUGH.
Tills lady, formerly a great aud deserved
favorite at McVicker’s, in your city, Is playing
with her usual ability, taste, and innate deli
cacy of sentiment and feeling, In a play called
the Seven Sisters, at the Pittsburgh Theatre.
It was formerly a Union piece of much merit,
but a fellow named McDonough, an Irishman
of course, who appears to be desperately
down on the poor “nagurs” has interpolated
secession enough into it to damn a thousand
pieces of the same character. They were so
unpalatable to the audience as to bo saluted
with hisses on all sides. McDonough makes
Massachusetts the cause of all the national
troubles, and constantly apologises for the
“Wayward Sisters,” especially South Caro
lina. Mrs. Hough should cut tills ’ piece and
all connection with theatres in which men
with such narrow aud pro-slavery ideasasthis
fellow McDonough evidently rejoices in are
leading actors. Let Lotty, who Is a sterling
Union woman, be true to herself and her lu
nate sense of right and Justice, and the people
will reward her as she deserves. She is much
improved in her appearance since her trip to
-England, where. X believe, she was very flat
teringly received. She appears to grow young
er and better looking every day.
PENNSYLVANIA CENTRAL RAILROAD.
This is the western terminus of the Penn
sylvania Central Railroad which has a doable
track from here to Philadelphia, and is alto
gether a magnificent road. It is at present
doing an enormous business. 1 believe that
it cannot manufacture freight cars in suffi
cient numbers, with the ala of ail Its work
shops, to accommodate the traffic. I met
freight trains ol enormous length and in great
numbers all along the route. Night and day
they arc sweeping up and down the eastern
and western slopes of the Alleghanies, loaded
with all manner of articles, from coal up to
cattle, hogs and sheep. The energetic and
gentlemanly Superintendent of the road, who
makes his headquarters at Pittsburgh, is A.
Carnagie, Esq. He is enterprising and Inde
fatigable, and Is highly spoken of by all.
What is more, he Is a thorough-going Union
man, and will not toleratea Copperhead upon
the road. On Friday no less than seven men
with secession tastes and sympathies were
discharged by his directions, and ho is bound
to “ clean out” eveiyman of the Jeff. Darts
and Vallandlghamstripe. “ More power to
his elbow,” say I.
THE ALARM ON ACCOUNT OP TUB WESTERN
LEGISLATURES,
I find all through Pennsylvania that the ut
most alarm prevailed on account on the say
ings and doings of the Copperheads in the
Legislatures of our Stale and Indiana. While
they were in session, U was daily feared that
they would place their States in an attitude of
revolution, and perhaps carry them off Into
the Southern Confederacy, The moment they
adjourned immediate relief was felt, and the
great fall of newly twenty-five per cent, in
gold is to a great extent attributed to the XUct
that their hellish schemes were defeated by
the action of the Republican minorities, and
tbe firm altitude assumed by Governors Yates
and Morton. These latter gentlemen are
looked up to almost with feelings of venera
tion, and their praises are on every tongne.
TUB FALL IN THE PRICE OP GOLD.
The great fall in the price of gold has given
immense satisfaction to all loyal men. Ko
one, except a few speculators and the seces
sionists proper, hut that rejoices at it Con
gress did a very wise thing in passing an act
to prevent speculation in the precious metals.
lam sorry to leam that this speculation had
been fostered and encouraged hy many of the
heavy banking institutions, East and
West even the Savings Banks had loaned
the money of their depositors for the.infa
mous purpose of aiding in the depreciation of
the currency, on which alone Mr. Chase has
been able to furnish funds with which to car
ry on the war. This speculation must now
bring min te thousands, and I should not be
surprised to see some of these institutions
suffer the penalty of their wrong doing.
COPPEEHEADISM Cf THE PENNSYLVANIA LEGIS
LATURE.
But talking of Copperhead Legjslatnres, a
minority of Copperheads in the Legislature
of this State have last done an act which, I
believe, even the miserable tools of Jett Da
vis, in the Illinois and Indiana Legislatures,
would scarcely have dared to contemplate.
A motion was made to place the ball of the
House of Representatives, at Harrisburg, at
the disposal of Govs. Andy Johnson, of Ten
nessee, and ‘Wright, of Indiana, for the pur
pose of addressing the people—when, to tneir
shame bo it spoken, the Copperheads, in the
House of Representatives, contrived to de
feat it It failed for want of a two-third (the
constitutional) majority. I send yon the list
of the double-dyed traitors who did this act,
which will make the secession demons at
Richmond howl with satisfaction and delight.
Ho doubt the Richmond Congress will pass
resolutions of thanks to these miserable trait
ors. Here is a list of them. Let the roll of
infamy be passed around among loyal men,
and let their names be classed with the Bene

A SERENADE TO THE TBAITOR VALLANDIOHAM*
A most disgraceful attempt was mode, last
night, to glorify that prince of traitors, Val
landigham, at the expense of the honor and
standing of loyal Philadelphia. It bad been
whispered about among the faithful for a few
days, privately, that the miserable toady of
JclT. Davis, and bis rebel Government, wonld
pass through tMs city last evening. The
“Democratic Club” accordingly made arrange
ments to give Mm a sort of reception, “on
the sly 1 that is to serenade Mm at his hotel,
impromptu, as it were, and have the atliir
puffed up in the morning Copperhead papers ,
ns a most, enthusiastic demonstration against ,
Lincoln and the war, and in favor of the prin*
ciples of the Confederate Constitution, an ar
mistice and peace. The serenade took place
In iront of the Girard House. The reception
speech was made by an 1 rishraan, named Cor
rigan. He was followed by the notorious Rev.
Cnauncy C. Burr, wMlomc Uulvcrealist
preacher, peripotetic lecturer on biology at
two sMUings a head, editor of a secession
paper suppressed In New Tork, and agent of
the late notorious Lola Montcz. A number
of Union men, attracted by the sky rockets,
(all of which, curiously enough, discharged
serpents in the air) assembled on the opposite
side of the street, and gave the actors in this
outrage a taste of their sentiments as to the
affair, by sundry groann, countercheeing,
hisses, Ae., Ac, As to Barr, he could not
get a decent hearing. It was as much as the
police conld do to keep the peace, and bad
the Union people known what was to have
been the order of the proceedings, no donbt
it never would have taken place. I noticed
that the Irish, as usual, made up the bulk of
tic sympathizing portion of the audience,
and yelled like demons at eveiy allusion to
the “nagur” and “Quid Abe,” as they eu
phoniously and respectfully termed them.
How Is It that these countrymen of O'Con
nell have so completely deserted Ms principle ?
He spoke from, the same platform with
negroes, and refused to take the hands
or the money of slave-holders,
during the agitation of West India emancipa
tion. How is the ease with men that pretend
to reverence bis memory in the UnitoaStatcs
of America in these days ? They arc almost
in solid phalanx against emancipation, and
even against the war and in favor of an armis
tice and a disgraceful peace. What a contrast
do they present to the starving operatives

another from the same author, still more in

has received fifty letters from this monster
of tkc same character; and that bo has be
come so disgusted with his treason, that he
is willing he should be exposed. He says Ms

have forgotten to preach Christ and Mm

him glorified. He has “ stolen the livery of

bo Ms meat and drink, to try to sow the seeds
of dissention among the soldiers, and to

Black Bchel Regiments in the Fight,
[From tbe Nashville Union, 7th,]
A gentleman who came in from Franklin
yesterday evening, brings tbe following par
ticulars of an engagement which took place
near Franklin, on Thursday, about which all
kinds of rumors have been circulating for the
last twenty-four hours. He states that Gene
ral Gilbert sent out three regiments of infant
ry and a battery, on a certain expedition, with
Instructions not to bring on a fight, but to
keep up skirmishing if they encountered tbe
enemy. The design was, we believe, to effect
a junction with another force. A few miles
out they fell in with a small force of the rebel
cavalry, and attacking them, drove them
back, in the vicinity of the Columbia pike,
near West Harpeth, some four miles from
Franklin, when they were suddenly flanked
by anoverwhelmning force of Van Dorn's cav
alry, with mounted infantry and artillery. A
fierce engagement ensued, during which our
i forces , being assailed by at least four times
their own number, were driven back. During
■ the fight the battery in charge of the 85th In
diana was attacked by two rebel negro regl-
I meats. Onr artillerists double shotted their
guns and cut the block -rebels to pieces, and
rought their battery safely off.
Thu fight began with skirmishing at about
I nine o’clock in the morning, and lasted until
I three in the afternoon. Our forces retreated
into Franklin.
The firing was distinctly heard at Franklin
during the day. Why Gen. Gilbert sent no
reinforcements ont from the largo force sta
tioned at Franklin, wc are unable to imagine.
It appears passing strange that an army which
could have crashed the rebel force to pieces
was kept idle while the thunder of a battle
raging not four miles off, was sounding for
six hours in their ears.
. It has been stated repeatedly, for two weeks
past, that a large number, perhaps one-fourth,
ofVanDom’siorcowere negro soldiers, and
the statement is fully confirmed by this unfor
tunate engagement. The Southern rebels
forced their negroes to take up arms to des
troy this Government, and enslave us and our
children.
