FRIDAY, MARCH 13,15G3.
A DEMOCRATIC PROTEST.
■We print, to-day, an article from the
Cliicago Post, which regarded, as it truly
jnay be, as an index of the feeling of a large
body of loyal Democrats oflllinois, and a
declaration of war upon the Copperheads
of the Chicago Tiities school, is of great
Significance. As Republicans it is dis
tasteful to us in many particulars; but as
loyal and earnest supporters of the Govern
ment in Us eflorts to put down the rebel
lion, it is gratifying in so far as it affords
evidence that the most respectable portion
of the Democratic party will not be accom
plices in the treason that the Yallandig
hams, the Voorhees, and men of that
kidney intend. "We commend it to our
readers as a part of the history of the times
eminently worthy of their attention.
In the progress of the reaction against
the infamous teachings of the Copperhead
School, these evidences of the determina
tion of the Democratic party to rid itself
of the pestilent, malcontents who would
prostitute it to the base uses and purposes
of treason, are not now-a-days infrequent.
They crop out everywhere, in the editorial
columns of the public journals, the speech
es of leading public men, i* the resolutions
of popular assemblages, acd in the im
proved talk that we every day hear on the
street We believe that the point of dan
ger has been passed, and that the convic
tion that, whatever may be the partisan
opinions in regard to the rightfulness and
necessity of the acts of the Administration,
the President must, as the representative
of the authority of the Republic, be hearti
ly sustained. That conviction is the only
one upon which loyal men in these times
can act, and we are heartily glad to see its
results. '
tub WEST AND NEW YOBS.
"Wc hardly know what to think of the
25cw York Legislature. In face of the re
monstrances of the West against the longer
continuation of the present commercial
Ej-stcm that New Tork has adopted; in
face of the fact that Illinois and the sur
rounding Stales have inaugurated, are pur
suing and are determined to cany out,
with the aid of the Provincial Government
on our Northern border, a plan that will
release us of the "West from the commercial
domination of the Empire State; and in
face 100 of the heightened political dissat
isfaction cousequeat upon the trade dis
abilities that the "West, by the greed of
New Tork, has been compelled to sutler,
the Legislature of that Stale seems deter
mined to strengthen and perpetuate all our
causes of complaint, and by its consummate
folly, give discontent here another and a
stronger reason for pursuing its purposes
to their logical end. The crying need of
the West is cheap and quick communica
tion with tide-water and a market. She
demands of New York, in the name of her
suffering fanners, new, belter and cheaper
facilities through the territoiy of that State
—a reduction of her canal tolls and en
larged and improved channels of commu
nication ; and these are necessary to her
life. “Without them, she must die of inani
tion. She hoped to find them in the exe
cution of the plan for the national enlarge
ment of her canal simultaneously with the
enlargement of our own; but the dog-in
the-manger policy that Pennsylvania pur
sued, defeated her expectations; and now
She meets in the lobby at Albany a power
ful jobbing and contracting interest, likely
to prevail in the Legislature, that demands
continuance of the old system, in the pro
posal to spend additional millions in the
duplication of the locks between Rochester
and Syracuse—their duplication on the
old, not enlargement on the new plan de
manded by tbe ever increasing trade of the 1
country for which we speak. We do not 1
ihimk New York for such a tender. We
pee in it only a justification and a promise
of the of the robbery that
our merchants and farmers have endured.
!Thc improvement, though costly, and
though held up as an earnest of good in
tentions, will do us no good. Unless not
only these particular locks, but all others
on the Eric Canal, arc so widened, length
ened and deepened that boats two hun
dred feel in length and of twenty-five feet
beam, can pass through, they had better be
Suffered to remain as they are. Wc do not
expect, do not ask, that the enlargement
be effected at once; but wc ask, in the
legislation that NewTork may enterupon,
pome assurance that our wants arc heeded,
that our demands arc heard, and that she
5s willing to do us justice in the future,
upon condition that wc forget the past If
Ehc is in earnest, she will, as fust as she ;
can, give us the increased facilities that wc
seed, and when she orders an improvement,
order it upon a plan that will prove that
phe is animated by a desire for the good of
the whole, not by that meanness and cupid-r
i ily that now compels the West to seek at
the hands of foreigners the fair treatment
that is denied her by the city and State
that her industry and enterprise have en
riched.
We see in the spirit that controls the
legislature of New York, new reasons for
pushing to a successful issue the plan of
xelief that Illinois has adopted. The dep
utation from our State to Canada is ready
to start out It will be seconded in what
ever is patriotic and laudablo by delega
tions from nearly all the Northwestern
States. They arc all assured of a friendly,
nay a cordial reception; and we have no
reasonable doubt that the object of their
mission will be accomplished, and that, as
scon as Spring fnirly opens, we shall hear
that thousands of men arc at work upon
the channels that will give us an outlet to
the ocean and the markets of Europe, free.
That is the result for which all of the West
should labor.
RILLED AGAIN.
The stir recently made in Washington
and New York, in relation to the manage
ment of the Custom House in tbc latter
city, was the work of Mr. Congressman
Van Wyck, who, it now appears, was ac
tuated solely by motives that do not con
trol gentlemen. A letter in the New York
Evening Post, written by William Allen
Butler, places the whole matter in its true
light— exonerates Mr. Barney, the Collect
or, and puts a hand on Mr. Van Wyck that
he will not soon get rid of. Mr. Butler
says:
Mr. Van Wyck wanted places in the Custom
House for some of bis constituents. He
mode application for such appointments. To
appoint a new man, it was necessary to re
move on incumbent. Van-Wvck stated and
represented to Mr. Barney that O. Whlston, a
storekeeper, was a secessionist. A memo
randa of the statement was made at the time
By Mr. Barney, and in Van Wyck's presence.
Afterwards he wrote ns follows: /
44 O. Whhiton should be removed, and Da
vid Holly appointed. C. 1L Van Wick.”
At a later date he wrote again as follows:
••Washington*, Slay S, ISSI.
“I wrote yoa not long since that 0. B.
Whlston should be removed. Winston's
friends are secessionists at heart , and I have no
doubt svch it Whitton, C. H. Y. W.”
■Whlston was removed on this. He sought
for the ground of his removal, and heard that
bis own in Congress had effect
ed it by a charge of disloyalty. He wroteto
him, asking if It was true, van Wyck replied
ns follows. 1 quote from his letter:
44 Washington, January 12,1662.
44 To O. WmsTox, Esq.: Nothing could sur
prise me more than the statement in your
letter Ibis day received, that yon were re

- contentwith Ibis, and not remember
mg that the record would show the utter
frurity of his denial, be goes on to denounce
Mr. Barney for his base conduct'in removing
Whlston, and in refusing to make appoint
ments for him. The letter was published in
Ihc Tribune at the time.
After this, Mr. Van Wyck’s influence, as
might naturally be expected, was not con
trolling with Mr. Barney; hence his hitter
liostility. The blows of that mythical as
sassin who assaulted the member from
2fcw York, on Capitol Hill, in the dead of
xight, for words spoken in debate, were
mere love-taps compared with those that

A DANT.mOCS BUSINESS.
Our dispatches show that certain lowa
Copperheads have come to grief under the
section of the Conscription law that visits
severe penalties upon all who seek to pro
cure deserters from the army of the Union.
In our last issue it was stated that some of
the same fraternity in Indiana who have
been writing letters to our soldiers in the
field, to desert, have been caugbt in the
act. As this is one of the prominent wcak
nessess of the Copperhead school, we shall
do them, and the community, a service by
reprinting the section under which such
knavery will be punished hereafter:
See. 28. And be H further enacted. That every
pereon not subject to the rules ami articles or war
w bo shall procure or entice, or attempt to proettre
or entice a soldier in the service of the United
States to desert, or who shall harbor, conceal or
rive employment to a deserter, or carry him away,
or aid in carrying him away, knowing him to be
auch: or who shall pure hate from any soldier his
aims, cqniiltncuts. ammunition, uniform, clothing,
or any part thereof; and any captain or command
ing officer of any ship or vessel, or any superin
tendent orconductor of asy railroad or any other
public conveyance, carrying away any such soldier
at> one of-fcie crew or otherwise, knowing him to
have deserted, or shall refuse to deliver him up to
the orders of his commanding officer, snail, upon
legal conviction, bo fined, at the discretion of any
court having cognizance ol the t«ame, Injmy sum
not exceeding five hundred dollars, and he shall be
imprisoned not exceeding two years nor less than
tlx months.
Insurrection in Poland.
It has turned out os we ventured to predict
a whlleago, that the insurrection in Poland is
of far greater importance than the Russian
journals were willing to admit. Not one dis-
ti ict alone, but the whole Kingdom is inarms,
and upon several occasions the redoubtable
Russian troops have been beaten In fair com
bat with the insurgents.
The Russians, it is true, occupy a number
of unimportant towns and fortresses, and have
had also their successes to boast of, as well as
their defeats to be sorry for. At the date of
our h i -ulviees, they held in Poland, Modlin,
Warsaw, Lamosck, and Lublin; and they seem
to be content for the present to rest upon
these honors. At all events they are very
cautious how they follow the insurgents into
the country, and have rarely pursued them
when the fortunes of war had decided in their
favor.
The roads, which are always bad at the best,
are certainly against them, and scarcely
practicable for military movements. Butjthere
are other and weighty reasons which, no
doubt, influence the command of the Russian
army. The whole country is flat, and well
wooded, ondadmirably adapted, therefore, for
irregular warfare, such as the insurgents know
so well howto use to advantage. Whenever
the Russians, therefore, have ventured to fol
low them they have always been sadly mauled
and harrassed by the rebel sharp shooters and
cavalry.
It is not at all certain that Russia, with all
her military resources, will be able to put the
insurrection down without the aid of foreign
powers. Prussia has already got her foot into
the net, and the other European powers do
not appear to he satisfied with her for
the trespass. She maintains her position,
however, and it is currently reported that M.
Von Bismark, offered, sometime before the
action of Prussia was made publio, to renew
the so-called Holy AUiancc, to help Russia in
her brutal crusade against the Poles.
This Is a bad move, and altogether in the
wrong direction. Even the London Times
which is notoriously the advocate of despotic
authority, and the enemy of human freedom
—cries out in favor of Poland, and against
Bnssia in this contest; and every friend of
liberty would rejoice to sec Poland a Kingdom
once more.
There is something more than a probability
that this political vision will, in the end, be
realized. It is no mob riot which disturbs
at this time the peace olPoland, and the sleep
of Russia. It is stated upon the best authori
ty that the Rusian Catholic priests, who have
always been cruelly oppressed by the Russians,
arc the head and front of the whole movement,
and we know that the best families and some
of the highest nobles arc enlisted in its ser
vice.
Out of four millions of inhabitants, nlne
lenths are either Roman Catholics or members
of the Greek Church ; and this fact will ac
count for the general uprising of the people
if the priests are really their leaders. That
there "was cause enough for the rebellion, the
history ofits inauguration sufficiently proves.
It is admitted hy the Vienna Journal Corres
pondiTice—a semi-official paper—that the con
scription was a “political necessity”—and
that the object of the Russian Government in
enforcing it, was “ to send off to regiments
lying in the Caucasus and Siberia, all cdu*
catcd Poles capable of bearing arms, between
the ages of seventeen and thirty 1” The fear
was that these persons should prove insurrec
tionists, and if the levy demanded by the
conscription had been supplied, the popular
cause would lave been weakened if not utter
ly destroyed by detaching from It the most
intelligent of itsgnardians.
On ordinary occasions Poland has to furnish
fifteen thousand recruits yearly to the Russian
army. And to give some idea of the in jus
tice of the new Conscript Law it will only he
necessary to state that a levy oi two thousand
was made upon Warsaw, with apopulatkm of
one hundred and sixty thousand!—that the
weight of the oppression fell upon the cities,
and that very few recruits were ordered or
obtained from the country, and that no noble
or landed proprietor was consriptcd. The |
last news is that the Russians had dislodged |
the insurgents from Wcngrow—a town ol
three thousand people, in the department of
Lnhlln. There is no truth in the report that
they lost 150 meu on this occasion. The Rus
sians made a few prisoners, four of whom the
Commander shot on the 4ih oi January I In
the town of Biala the Polish Eagle flics in place
of the Black Eagle of Russia. M. Lagiewiz,
j a talented and energetic man, formerly an of
i fleer of artillery, is at the head of 6,000 Poles
at Wonchozk;aud Kurawskchas a large force
at Ojcaw.
The insurgents around Warsaw are well
armed and mounted, and iu good spirits.
Some of the Russian officers, it Is said, arc
not trusted at St. Petersburg, although the
army Is, to all appearances, loyal.
Another BJniou. Victory at Star
ling-ton.
An election was held in Burlington, lowa,
ou Monday last, for school officers, and tbc
Copperheads not content with the mauling
they got a few weeks since in she municipal
election, again rallied, but only to sudor
another defeat, the entire Union Republican
ticket having been elected. The schools of
Burlington heretofore have been under the
control of the Copperheads, and the petty
annoyances of tbc teachers, who have been
the mere tools of the school, have been dis
graceful. A total change will be made.
EgT* All the “ blessed Dcmocra’ic martyrs”
juecaudidates for Governor. Dennis Mahony
considers himself tbc candidate for lowa,
but in steps Mr. Thomas Clagctt, of the Keo
kuk Constitution, who is a martyr of a later
date, aud claims the position heretofore occu
pied by Dennis. So in Ohio, Olds, Vallan
diglmm, and now Sammedary, all legitimate
“ martyrs,” claim the Governorship, and we
shouldn’t wonder it they had each other by
the hair soon. Verily, martyrdom is likely
not to prove so popular as it has been. There
arc too many candidates.
United States Taxes.— The time for the
payment of the annual tax expires to-day (the
13th.) It should be remembered that in case
of non-payment of taxes, whether for licenses
or otherwise, it is imperative on the Collector
to add ten per cent, to the amount, which
sum Is paid, with the tax, to the Government.
The tax is for licenses, for silver plate and
carriages. The income tax is not yet as
sessed.
£5?” A general order from the Department
of the East supersedes the old plan of sending
all deserters to Washington. Deserters will
be examined in New York, and those perma
nently unfit for duty will be discharged. Per
sons only temporarily unfit will bo sent to
hospital, while those who arc fit for duty will,
be held in prison, snhjcct to orders.
Deaths in* the Washington Hospitals.—
The following Western soldiers have died in
the Washington hospitals since our last re
port: Michael Mcrehutt, company D, 4th
Michigan; P. C. Summons, company A, Slh
Illinois cavalry; John McLeod, company I,

“Conscription.”
It cannot bo denied that much of the clam
or against the Conscription act, recently
passed by Congress, is raised by men who are
in no way affected by It—subjects of other
powers, who are residents of this country, en
joying the protection of our laws, and fatten
ing themselves on our distresses. With this
class everything done by foreign governments,
from which they hare fled, is right, and every
thing done by the Government of the coun
try In which they live is wrong. Mercenaries,
hi the broadest sense of the term, these men
would destroy what they have not the courage
to defend. The national dwelling may he en
dangered by the torch of the incendiary;
they have no hand and no heart to help In ex
tinguishing the flames, for they are only
boarders. Some may perhaps express the
opinion that had the building been differently
constructed, fire could not have been success
fully applied, and others may regret that a
portion of the lawful occupants should have
become so incensed against the rest, as to at-,
tempt the destruction of the whole, for the
purpose of securing their own rights andpro
totting their own interests.
In comparing the conscription act recently
passed by Congress, with the systems of other
countries, these parties forget that what is in
the one case a choice, is in the other a neces
sity. Let France abolish her Conscript laws
to morrow, reduce her armies, and she would
he made thereby a stronger and more prospe
rous country than she is at the present time.
Let Germany follow in her wake—substitute
liberal institutions for military despotism,
and the greatness of the nation and happiness
of the people would be promoted thereby.
Not so with the United States. The war wag
ing in this country is not for national aggran
disement, but national existence. There has
always been, and there will always continue
to be, in the minds ot the people of this coun
try', a strong objection to a standing military
power. Here the sword can never be drawn
until all other agencies have tailed, and then
only temporarily for the accomplishment of
an object. Hitherto voluntary enlistments
have been equal to the military requirements
of the country; but the magnitude of the
present struggle, and the exhaustion of the
volunteer element of society, has now for the
first lime in our history as a nation, rendered
other measures necessary. Conscription is
resorted to as the lust means in strengthening
the last power employed for the preservation
of the country.
The relative merits and demerits of the Con-
scriptiou laws of France and Prussia have
been fully discussed iu the public
journals, and the inferiority of foreign
systems, compared with those recent
ly adopted by the Congress of the
United States, has been made apparent to
every unprejudiced mind. As there arc some
in our midst, with whom the Government of
Great Britain is the standard of excellence, it
may not be amiss, at such a time, to refer to
the measures adopted by that country, to man
her fleets and strengthen her armies daring
the reign of the first Napoleon. If the Brit
ish Parliament failed to pass an act of con
scription, it did what was much worse—coun
tenanced and legalized impressment. It will
he remembered that the high handed out
rages of British ships of war, in overhauling
American vessels on the high seas, taking
therefrom American citizens, and forcing
them involuntarily into the British service,
led to war in 1812. The evils of onr Con
script net will appear ns light when compared
with the horrors of the British press-gang.
■ By reckless and desperate men, thrown sud
denly upon the coas's and into the principal
cities of the country, flilhcrs, without warn
ing, were torn from their children, and sons
from their parents, to return-—if again—after
years of forced service in a foreign clime. In
many cases, the unfortunate victims were
seized without the knowledge of their rela
tives, impressed to duty on ships of war, and
carried to a distant quarter of the globe. The
writer of this article had a near relative im
pressed in this way—lom suddenly from his
> home, taken to the Mediterranean, while all
interested in his welfare were kept, for
months, in Ignorance of his fate.
Let those who arc dissatisfied with the Con
scription act just passed, call to mind the
British press-gnngj and feel grateful for the
security and liberties they possess. Mac.
Tlic Creed of Wall Street*
The N. T. Independent says that when a
rich man in that city retires from active
mercantile life, and when his friends suppose
that having made his fortune ho is going to
spend the residue of Ms days in quiet, ease
and usefulness they are greatly surprised to
find that he very shortly turns up in Wall
street as a shark, where he is called a “ capi
talist.” He now gives his thoughts and his
lime exclusively to money matters. To make
money is just as much his vocation, there, as
during any of the previous twenty years,
when he sold tape, jewsharps, or ginger. He
has only “ changed his base of operations”—
that’s all. Now a man, to succeed in Wall
street,must have a “single eye” to one ob
ject.
At such a time as the present, Wall street
is very much Warned for not doing this thing
and that thing to help the Government. It
is expected, by all outsiders, that Uncle Sam
has only to say “Open Sesame,” when every
money vault will Immediately vomit forth, at
his feet, all its golden treasures.
Kow it is our business to post our readers
on all financial matters, to state the precise
position of these money changers from their
own stand-point, and therefore we have de
cided to publish their creed. The devotees
of Mammon have creeds as well as other
folks; aud when this fact is not only known,
but generally realized, there will be less com
plaining. We believe that its publication will
have a tendency to convince people that Wall
street patriots will no anything—will loan or
give away millions—to save the country—
provided they can make money by it. Our
sources of Information are correct, and the
following may be relied on as a “true copy
of tbc original.”
WALL STREET GREED.
We believe in money-making as the chief
end of man.
We believe in patriotism perse, for that sort
don’t cost a dollar.
We believe that all political questions
should be settled at the stock btard.
We believe that Congress, in order to save
the Union, should always consult financiers.
We believe in liberty to secure a fortune as
we please, without being ‘‘stamped” or
“taxed” by anybody.
We believe in the self-evident proposition
that there is cheating in all trades except
ours.
We believe in buying cheap and selling dear
as the only true principle of doing business.
We believe In Major Generals who never
light, for then the soldiers—poor fellows!—
arc never hurl.
We believe, solemnly, that a man has char
acter in proportion to the length of his purse.
We believe that this wicked rebellion will
be put down when no more money can be
made out of it—and not one minute before.
We believe that, in such times as these, no
roan should part with a dollar, but lay it
aside for a rainy day.
We believe, with all true bears and patriots,
in hammering away at Government sixes and
seven-thirties with the same freedom as we
do at old Erie, Harlem, or Pacific mail—al
ways provided we can make money—not
otherwise.
Webelieve that the recent and uncalled for
opposition to our gold speculations is a blow
aimed directly at our liberties, which no true
lover of justice and freedom should submit
to. for one instant.
We believe that in such a trying houras the
present, any man who has money should be a
lltl 1c coolto Uncle Sam, and lean a trifle to
ward Jeff. Davis, for we don’t know yet, ex
actly, what will happen.
We believe that it is nobody’s business
what we do, provided we maintain our good
ned regular standing at the Stock Board.
We believe in abstract principles and In sun
diy duties to our fellow men—which they,
who have plenty of lime, should attend to.
We believe that Wall street brokers, finan
ciers.l' aud capitalists ore created free and
equal,* and Jhavejccrtaln inalienable
tights which outsiders have no business to
meddle with.
We believe, with old Dr. Sam Johnson that
every man has his price, and that If he cannot
get it he is a patriot.
We believe that oil men in our vocation
should persevere unto the end, and that they
are justified In so doing,otherwise there would
he no bone of dying as rich as Stephen Girard
or John Jacob Astor.
We believe that cotton is the ’great lever
with which the money vaults of Europe must
be opened, and hence our standing is a little
“mixed.” at times, in regard to the war.
We believe that we are all effectually called
to make money, sotbatonrchlldrcn may have
the means to cultivate their Bamum's,
Di;dworth T 8 or Disbrow’s, and also to travel
considerably abroad—say as fiir cast as the
44 Holy Land.”
We believe in forcordination or predestina
tion in regard to troublons times, in money
matters, and that as we are forewarned, we
should be forearmed with the 41 choicest se
curities.”
We believe that “special revelations” are
often made with great profit, and that ac
cordingly we expect the Secretary of the
Ticasniy to keep ns privately advised of all
his movements.
We believe that there should he a “ for and
in consideration, etc,.” attached to every
benevolent and patriotic movement—other
wise how should we know what we can make
by it?
We believe that colored. people interfere
considerably, just now, with our financial
prosperity, and that they all should be sent to
Africa, where white folks will cease from
troubling and no more molest or make them
afraid.
We believe in that kind of perfection which
consists in having sufficient brains to mako a
close calculation, in bidding fur a Govern
ment loan—so as to make a fortune at one
strike.
We believe that a day of reckoning is at
band when either Uncle Sam or Jefil Dans—
we don’t know which—will call upon us to
shell out, and that prudence requires us to
maintain friendly relations to both parties.
W T o must be right on the record.
We believe, finally, in the administration of
any white man in Washington who will see
that our craft is never In danger, and who
will always keep onr reel interests in new.
t o that our aggregate profits. In the end, shall
be a proper reward for our life-service in the
glorious cause of—Mammon.

WHAT THEY THINK OF THE COP
PERHEADS.
TVc have received the proceedings of a large

nothing else. We can, therefore, but give the

fetched. That we hold In utter detestation that
clique of miscrcats In the loyal States, who, under
the gaib of assumed loyalty, use the stolen reve
nue of arch treason to excite petty treason in their
own communities; who have no censures, save for
the officers of our Government—no complaints,
save that energetic measures are employed to crush
the rebellion—no aspirations, save to embarrass
our Executive and legislative Departments, and
engender mutinies in our armies—and no hopes,
save tor an ignoble peace and the substantial tri
umph of the rebels; that wc regard them as ene
mies to our country and mankind, who, to accom
plish their hellish purposes, would not hesitate to
blot forever from the hopes of man the cherished
thought of self-government; and that they merit
the scorn of all loyal citizens and true-hearted sol
diers, combining, us they do, the deep guilt of the
traitor with the essential meanness of tbc coward.
Retolred, That, dc-pite tbc frenzied efforts ot
onr foes before ne, and the despicable Intrigues of
our other foes behind us, wc will abate not one jot
of faith or hope; but. believing the maintenance
of our Government !b worth all the cost expended
in its establishment, we emphatically assure all
traitors at home, that not until we have under
gone a seven-years’ struggle, (If need be,) will we
cease this contest, and not until wc have expe
rienced such sufferings as were bravely endured at
Valley Forge, will we begin to murmur.
Rejoiced, That we arc utterly opposed to any
armistice orceesation ofboetilitica until our glo
rious flag of thirty-four stars waves triumphantly
from the dome of every Capitol In our land.
Resolved, That wc fully and unequivocally en
dorse the policy of our civil rulers, in using all ne
cessary means to strike decisive blows at tbc nu
holy rebellion, and to bring the war to a speedy,
sure and glorious termination, so that traitors in
the South may meet with deserved punishment,
and damnable traitors In the Northmaybe brought
to a terrible justice, “that hemp be notcreatedin
vain.”
Retclted, That to the loyal millions who encour
age us in our efforts, who >ympathize with us in
our hardships, aud who rejoice with ns in the suc
cesses of our armies, wo tender such heartfelt
gratitude as soldiers, facing a hostile foe, only can
Ret cited. That to Gov. Tod, of Ohio, Gov. Mor
ton, of Indiana, and Gov. Tatea, of Illinois, we ex
tend our hearty thanks for their ceaseless labors in
behalf of the soldiers from their respective States.

serve to be hung in company with Jeff. Davis
&Co.
Jir-dred, That on the other hand, we regard the

ble expression of the feelings of all true patriots,
that we heartily endorse the same, and are con
vinced that every Illinois soldier endorses it.
J:(fclr(d, That we hope ami wish to geo the re

TEE ARTILLERY OF THE DISTRICT OFEAST
ARKANSAS TO THE NORTHERN COPPER
HEADS.
Helena, March 8,15C3.
The undersigned see with regret the course
pin sued by a class of politicians at the North,
decrying the National Administration aud its
polity, calling for a cessation of hostilities
with rebels, and continually crying Peace!
Peace! while the slaveholders’ rebellion yel
remains nnernshed; representing that the
army is dissatisfied, and that a large portion
arc 'desirous of peace upon any terms with
rebels. We deem It our duty, representing
the entire nriilleiy arm in the District of East
Arkansas, unitedly to protest that all such
statements arc libels and slanders upon the
brave and patriotic officers and soldiers in the
field.
The army is nncormpted and incorruptible,
and stands nnilcdlyand firmly by the Presi
dent in a vigorous and unceasing prosecution
of the war, and most firmly does the army
stand by the National Administration in aft
its policies and efforts to put down the rebel
lion.
We do not esteem those friends of the Con
stitution or of the Union, who. under the
honored name of Democracy, traduce the Ad
ministration and the soldiers In the field, who
would make a dishonorable peace, and bring
ns back to onr homes in disgrace, having lost
the best Government God ever vouchsafed to
anv people.
To all such we would say, You arc not the
friend of the soldier, neither is the soldier
your friend; you are giving moral aid and
comfort to the enemy; you are false peace
makers.
Amid all discouragements wc have full con
fidence in the ultimate success of onr arms
and cause, believing that victory is at hand,
and that the rebellion is making Us last sink
ing efforts in an unholy and wicked attempt
to destroy a benignant Government.
In the rejoicings of victory, what part have
those who sympathize with or give aid and
comfort to the enemy?
The patriot and soldier demands that this
war be prosecuted until the rebellion is
crashed and the Union restored. Our motto
still is, “Liberty and Union, now and forever,
one and inseparable.”

MarchS, lbC3. )
At a meeting of the soldiers of the SSd and
09th regiments of Illinois volunteer infantrr,
held at the headquarters of the SSd Illinois,
Dr. Rex, Surgeon of the SSd, called the meet
ing to order by nominating Lt. CoL Koe. 33d
regiment, w ho was unanimously chosen Chair
man, and Capt. £. It. Smith, of the 99th, Sec
retary. Col. Roe (Democrat) addressed the
meeting with much eloquence and effect.
Col. Llppincott (Democrat) offered a series of
patriotic resolutions. Among them wai the
following:
JUfdtcd, That wc, volunteer citizen soUiera
fi cm the State of Illinois, temporarily deprived of
our nccustomedprivllcgcfl at the ballot-box, esteem
it a privilege lobe able iu this manner to express
our scorn, abhorrence and contempt of the display
of disloyalty and sympathy with an armed and
bolder treason, recently made by a largo port of
our Illinois Legislature, and we pledge our dety as
soldiers and our honor as men to do what we mar
to lri‘e onr glorions State from the disgrace with
which It has been threatened.
Wc should bo glad to publish the sjcech
entire of Col. Roe, who Is a well-known citi
zen of Bloomington, formerly connected with
the State Normal University, and always a
strong and determined Democrat, but it is
impossible for us to make room for it.
The meeting was also addressed by Dr. Rev,
Surgeon of the 83d; Corporal Dorfiingerof
the 13d; SergeanlGeorge S. Clarks, C»pu
Holt. Capt. McKenzie, Capt. Lawton, Rev.W.
Hawker, and Chaplain Eddy. Tae speakers
ware nil -well received and heartily applauded
jy the soldiers. In all the speeches no quar
ter was shown to the Copperheads. At the
close of the meeting, three hearty cheers were
riven for the bravo old champion, Isaac
jdse, who branded the Copperhead members
of onr Legislature as traitors.
THE OLD THIRTY-SECOND ILLINOIS.
Brat's Station, Tenn., Feb. 27,1563.
At a meeting of the officers and men of the
oldß2d, Col. John Logan was called to the
chair. On motion the President appointed
the following officers as a committee to draft
resolutions expressive of the feelings of the
men composing this regiment, in relation to
the “ Cre-in-lhe-rear” policy of some of our
dear friends in the noble Slate of Illinois and
elsewhere, Llcnt. Col. Wm. Hunter; Cant. J.
T. Ellas, Company I: E. McMillan, Chap
lain ; Capt. A. C. Campbell, Co. E; Capt. S.
Townsend, Co. F. _ .
During ihc absence of the committee, col.
Logan and Dr. J. G. Gilmer made afew appro
priate remarks suitable to the occasion. The
chairman, Lict. Col. Hunter, then read the
resolutions, among them, wc print the fol-
That the integrity of oor Wood bought

bo maintained.”
Retoircd, That a prosecution of the war com
mensurate with all the resources of the nation, till
the last vestige of the rebellion Is obliterated, and
the majesty of law vindicated and hilly established.
figured. That clemency to the deluded and the
penitent, ballets for the rebels, and ropes for those
whokimlle” fires in onr rear;” and we do most
tolcmly warn all such, that should duty ever call
ub home to quench those fires, a most terrible ret
ribution will await those who kindledthem.
Retolred, That although we have confidence in
the ability of the Union army to subdue the rebel
lion, yet as the rebels have employed slaves first in
making their fortifications and more recently un
der arms, we approve the policy of arming slaves
to meet slaves m battle. Nor do we fight to free
the slaves, but freetbe slaves to stop the fight.
Retolred, That we do most heartily approve the
conscript lon law, under the operation of which we
hope to see loitering patriotism hastening to ren
der its due support to tbc Government that af
fords it protection. We hope also to see the “ fire
in-the-rear men” under it enjoying a clearer view
of things in the “ sunny South,” than can he at
tained in the dim lodges of the E. G. C’s.
Retolred, That we most cordially approve the
constancy and firmness of Gov. Tates ana Adjutant
General Fuller during the stormy times through
which our beloved State lias passed. Wo shall
ever retain a grateful recollection of their watchful
care towards <ho wants of our soldiers In the field.
The meeting was ably addressed by Lieut.
Colonel Hunter, Major George English and
others.
10ni REGIMENT ILLINOIS INFANTRY.
FortNeglet, 1
Nashville, Tenn., March 4,1663. j
Editors Tribune:
The following sentiments were subscribed
to by every officer present with this, Col.
Tillson’s 10th regiment Illinois infantry vol
unteers, and met the hearty and unanimous
approval of the men.
“Copperhead,” “Peace on any terms”
men have no friends in the old regiment.
Respectfully, your obedient servant,
W. TV. Rice,
Clerk Regimental Headquarters.
Nashville, Term., March 7,1803.
Debarred, by absence from home, immediate
participation lu public affairs, and prevented by
the Uliberality of selfish aud disloyal politicians
from enforcing, by outvotes, our views upon the
unholy rebellion which weare t-trivingto suppress,
wo adopttbls method of attesting our devotion to
the Constitution and the Union—our abiding trust
in the integrity and patriotic intentions of our
Government, both State and National—our unfal
tering belief that the strong arms and heroic
hearts of our loyal soldiery will conquer an honor
able and pennauentpcace, and of expressing in
t mphetic terms our disapproval and detestation of
that traitorous spirit in some sections of tbc
North, especially in our own State, which, scarce
deigning to conceal : ts strong sympathy with the
rebellion, seeks, by all means open and secret, to
weaken the bands of State and Federal power—to
sow dissension in the Union ranks, and paralyze
the armed action of the nation—which magnifies
and exults over every misfortune to the loyal
cause, sends us no word of sympathy or hope
through press and legislative hall, carps at every
nit aud utterance of the Government, and now is
boldly making the fatal treacherous demand for
an armistice and terms to Southern rebels. No
heresy could be advanced more needless, more
craven, more hopeful |to the rebel cause, more ru
inous to our own, and the plotting traitors know
this well.
It were madness to relax the grasp we now hare
on this infamous treason: It le fiendish to ask that
the gallant blood of Illinois, which has crimsoned
so many a well fought field, should again be spilt,
those fields to re-win. It Is folly to check the
proud advance of these great armies on the only
pathway to peace—to urge that anywhere, except
on the crusted fragments of treason aud secession,
can our Rational honor be vindicated and lasting
prosperity be secured.
Thus feeling and believing we herein assert onr
confidence in the Government which we obey and
support; our grateful appreciation of the sympathy
and care manifested by our State Executive; and
our abhorrence, equally, of the armed rebel of the
South and Redeeming traitor of the North, who
strive in unison, the one to overturn, the other to
sap, the noble edifice of Constitutional freedom.
John Tillson, Colonel 10th 111.
92d ILLINOIS INFANTRY.
The 02d regiment Illinois volunteers, loca
ted at Nashville, adopted a preamble and re
solutions on the 20th ult., of the same char
acter as those we published. Among the re
solutions were the following;
Jlctclted, That words cannot express the bitter
conti mptand detestation in which we hold traitors
to tbit- Government, the best the sun ever shone
upon, wherever they may be found, and under
whatever name they may assume to hide their hel
lish purposes.
i.W/fted, That a traitor has no rights that this
Governinoutis bound to respect, no matterwbero
be resides: that Copperheads ut the North arc but
a poor edition of traitors at the South, and Unit
we most earnestly request our friends at home to
mark them for future reference, shoot them, if
need bo. and write over their graves, “ Here lies a
cowardly traitor to his country, rejected of God,
and despised by honest men.”
lUt,Ured, That we fully and unequivocally in
dorse the policy of the Administration (Emancipa
tion Proclamation included.) in any and all efforts
to suppress this unholy rebellion, and arc deter
mined that “Butternuts” either North or South
shall be brought to speedy justice.
MEETING OF THE SOLDIERS AT JACKSON,
TENNESSEE.
A most enthusiastic meeting of the soldiers
was held at Jackson on the 24tU nit. The
large hall of the Court Douse, the galleries,
the adjoining rooms that opened to the ball,
the doors and the windows were all literally
packed with soldiers, eager to hear what
might be said with reference to the blind in
fatuation of their Northern enemies. Apatri
otic and thrilling speech was delivered on the
occasion by J. G. Chalfant, Acting Adjutant
of the provost guards. Cheer after cheer went
up from that dense mass of of listening sol
diers, until the old Court House shook to its
foundation. Several citizens were present,
who, dining the stirring appeals of theorator,
seemed again to be revived by the refreshing
influence of the “Spirit of ’7O. n With refer
ence to Northern rebel sympathizers, the
speaker told his comrades to “mark every
Toiywho had turned his back against the
bravedefenders of our country in this their
day of peril and suffering; and if any of them
should hereafter present themselves as candi
dates for office, and ask a soldier for his suf
frage, he should immediately point them to
their record, and brand them there as the con
temptible co adjutors of treason, and cast
their dishonored names into the grave of po
litical infasy, as being absolutely too dis
graceful to be seen upon the records of the
na* ion’s history.
The wildest enthusiasm prevailed through
out the meeting, manifesting, in unmistaka
ble terms, that the'soldicrs at this place are
fully determined never to lay down the wea
pons of war until the insulted flag of our
i country shall again wave In triumph over
every rebel fort and city of the South. Patri
otic and stirring resolutions were read, and
, unanimously adopted.

I These two regiments held a meeting at
Nashville, on the 23d ult., and passed a series
of patriotic resolutions. We have only room

WASHINGTON’S BIBTHDAY.
Lapatette, Term., Feb. 24.
The 2d Brigade of the old lighting 4th Di
vision, celebrated the 22d in a very becoming
manner, showing that the memory of our n£
Uonal founder was greatly revered, and the
same love of country which inspired Wash
ington’s heart with the sagacity and Intrepid
ity which constructed out of the crude ele
ments of the then feeble colonies, an asvlum
for the world and the hope of humanity,* still
burned brightly on the altar of the soldier's
heart.
The exercises were Introduced by music
from the brigade brass band, followed by
prayer by John Ronghton, 71st Illinois in
fantry. An address upon the life and charac
ter of Washington was l hen delivered by Chap
lain B. T. Rodgers, of the 15th Illinois volun
teer infantry. It was certainly an able effort,
end was listened to with profound attention,
giving great 'credit to its author.
After the address a number of toasts were
offered, among them the following:
May the war close over the grave of every In
state traitor whether he be North or South.
The great sacred code of eternal life, was en
trusted!)? Jehovah to Abraham of old. and the
triumphant code of liberty Is entrusted by the
seme great power to Abraham of to-day.
We acknowledge but one God, one Bible, one
Constitution, one Union, acdbnt one heart which

I'hc Democracy; a Choice mast
he made.
[From the Chicago Tost, (War Democrat.)
There is no doubt but ■within the great Dem
ocratic party at this time there is a dlflerenca
of opinion as to the proper policy to be pur
sued respecting the further prosecution oi
the ■war. This does not arise from any lack of
Striotism, or devotion to the Union; but is
e result of the mad and reckless teachings
of a few desperate political leaders and news
papers, who, seeking notoriety, prefer even
that the most disreputable to the qmet self
approval which all men feci they merit m
doing their dnty tu their country. The inter
ference and vindictiveness of the Republican
press has helped these demagogues extremely.
The Democratic masses are loyal to the
heart's core; there may be exceptions, but
they are outnumbered ten to one by individ
uals who are traitors at heart, yet in full com
munion and bolding office in the Republican
parly. The Democratic party has been the
war party ol this nation from the foundation
of the republic, and cannot be anything else,
without first repudiating every honest princi
ple for which Democrats have struggled, and
embracing every dishonest principle of every
i dishonest party that has raised its leprous
head since the adoption of the Constitution.
There Is a newspaper in this city called the
Chicago Time*, which holds itself forth to the
country as the authorized organ of the views
and sentiments of the Democratic party. For
one year past, the paper of which we speak,
has been laboring with all its industry and
means to educate the Democratic masses into
rank rebellion against the principles of their
party and against the great principles of
American constitutional liberty. How tar it
has succeeded, supported as it has been by
some half a dozen sheets in Ohio, one in Mich
igan, and three or four others scattered over
the northwest, is fully understood by the
public. We have been a Democrat always;
we have done some service in the party, and
though we may not have the power to correct
the evil, or avert its results, we have deter
mined at least to cuter our protest against
having the Democratic party converted into a
mere tribe of jayhawkere, acknowledging no
allegiance to constitution and laws, bat sub
ject at a cut-throat's order to make war on
friend or foe.
Wc have seen little, very little lu Mr. Lin
coln's administration to approve or endorse.
We think his military and civil adminl-trarion
have been gross failures; but that is no rea
son wby we sbonfd join the enemy. During
Mr. Madison’s administration, owing to the
imbecility of the Secretary of War, the in
efficiency of the commanding general, and the
general know-nothingness of the administra
tion, a handtul of British Infantry, by slow,-
and easy marches, entered the Federal cap
itcl, put the President and his cabinet to
flight, took possession of all the public
buildings, and after burning all that they
could not take away, leizurely marched
out andlet the frightened Administration re
turn to the Federal city. Could there have
been a more appalling degradation than that
—the result of administrative stupidity, igno
rance or treachery ? Yet, wc may search the
records of the country in vain to find a Dem
ocratic meeting, a Democratic convention, or
a Democratic newspaper, that proposed as a
remedy for the cvilcitheraccssation of bostil
lies, an armistice, or commissioners to treat
with the enemy. From one end of the Union
to the other, the disaster invoked from the
Democratic people of the nation, patriotic,
honorable and Democratic expressions of de
votion to the government. The very weak
ness of a government is the strongest reason
why a Democrat should give it his whole sup
port. This is the history of the Democratic
party in times gone by, and in it there is noth
ing of which a man ought to-be ashamed. If
there were men at the North and at the South
in those days who desired peace and an armis
tice, or sympathized with or aided the British,
these men have no descendants who boast of
the conduct of their ancestors.
One of the favorite and most lasing soph
isms, by which tnese enemies of the Demo
cratic party and teachers of false doctrine
seek to mislead, is, that the enemjr against
which the Union is now contending is not an
ordinary enemy. He is, say they, of our own
fleshand blood, and it Is iuflimous to protract
a war, and cause the further effusion of the
blood of our kindred. We have no unkind
feeling towards the people of the rebel States,
personally. We will admit that while they
formed part of the common political family,
they were flesh of oar flesh; but from the day
when Cain slew Abel, the crime of homicide
has always been rendered tenfold more horri
ble when it was parraeidal or fratricidal.
Who raised the parraeidal hand that
has since deluged this land with the
best blood of the nation? Who commenced
the fratricidal war, which, sparing nothing,
has left the bones of the young men of the’
nation to whiten upon countless fields of
blood ? If these rebels arc fle?h of our flesh
and bone of our hone, let us also remember
that they causelessly, wantonly, defiantly,
commenced the fratricidal war, andlet it also
be remembered that the Almighty,seizing the
first fratricide, set a mark upon him. 'The
fact that these men arc part of a common
family, and that they, having fall political
power in the Union to ask for and insist upon
constitutional means of redress for all wrongs,
lirefencd war; and that to this day they hurl
Icflancc, and spit upon all propositions of
conciliation and Union, in our judgment, on
ly renders them, as enemies, more objection
able and repulsive than if they were some
foreign power, that had never cujoyed the
peaceful prosperity of the American Union.
But our object at this time is to point out
to.thc Democracy of the northwest a neces
sity which is fast coming upon us. Shall the
Democratic party be a unit, or shall it be torn
into a thousand fragments.
In New York, Pennsylvania, and in every
Stale cast of the Allegbanies, the Democratic
party, under the cool, sagacious and states
manlike lead of Horatio Seymour, have re
solved to stand firmly by its past glorious and
1 honorable bistory, and to sustain to the last
extremity the Federal Government in all con
stitutional means to supported uphold the
Union.
. Scattered here and there over the North
west, are petty politicians, who have enrolled
5 themselves under the lead of Mr. Vallandig
j ham. These men have, as wc have said, a
i newspaper, claiming to be the organ of the
, Democracy, in this city. The hour for choos
r leg Is rapidly approaching. Will the Democ
t racy of iilinoit stand by their brethren of New
- York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey ? Will
• they follow Seymour, and, under hisgnidance
3 and’ statesmanship, sustain their or
t will they abandon him, abandon Constitution,
t country, Union, nationality, everything, by
* enlisting under the fanciful banner of Vallan
s digham 1 Fellow Democrats* the hour is at
hand when yon must choose one of these al
ternatives. ‘Will you follow Seymour to save
g your country, or, at least, to rescue what can
■* be saved of it, or will you join the mob, bear
e ing destruction to borne, life, property, every
y thing, at the call of the reckless men who
ic worship a Vallandlgham?

Xlto Copperhead Agitators.
[From the New York Herald, 10th.]
Vallaudigham, Booby Brooks, Bon. Wood
and the rest of the copperheads who have been
performing their antics in this city are mere
agitators. Not one of them, has the brains,
to eay nothing of the trainingand experience,
requisite for statesmen. They are fit to be
local demagogues or ward politicians, bat
have no capacity for national affairs. They
remind us of what a New Hampshire farmer
said of poor Pierce, who proved so miserable
a failure as President. “Frank Pierce,” said
be, “was a great man here in the Granite
State; but when bewas spread overtbe whole
"Union, he was so mighty thin there was noth
ing of him.” In the same way there is
nothing in such noisy men as Tallandigbam,
Brooks and Wood, when they attempt to dis
cuss the affairs of the nation, rent, as It D. by
civil war. They are all froth, sound and fnrv.
Some of them are courting martyrdom; but
•we trust the Government will not gratify their
aspirations. To arrest them would be to give
them importance and increase the excitement
which t heir inflammatory appeals are Intended
to produce.
