Wulkeas, The Senate of the United States, de
voutly recognizing the topreme authority and jnst
jrovorr.mcijt of Almighty God in all the affairs of
3ncn and of nai ions, has, by a resolution, requested
ihe President to designate and set apart a day for
Rational prayer and humiliation; and.
Whereas Uis the duty of nations as well as of .
3r.cn. to own their dependence upon the overruling
■power of God, to coniese their sins and transgres

lhat genuine repentance will lead to mercy and
pardon, and to recognize the sublime truths an
xounced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all
history, that those nations only are bless ;d whose
Cod is the Lord;
And, Inasmuch, as we know that, by His divine
3aw, nations, like individuals, arc subjected to
punishments and chastisements in this world,
may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of
civil war, which now desolates the land, maybe
beta punishment inflicted upon ns for our pre
sumptuous sins, to the nccdfnl end of our national
Teformation as a whole People? Wc have been

sings were produced by some superior wisdom
Di d virtue of our own- Intoxicated with unbro
ken success, we have become too self-sufficient to
feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving

It behooves ns, then, to bumble ours elves before
the offended Power, to confess our national sins,
tmd to pray for clemency and forgiveness.
yow, therefore, in compliance with the request,
and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I
Co by this my proclamation designate and set

And I do hereby request all the people to abstain

and to unite, at their several places of public wor

By the President:
William H. Seward, Secretary of State.
The news comes that Hooker's army is
an motion. It is light, and unsupported by
later dispatches, nevertheless we are in
clined to believe that there may be some
thing in it. TVe know the army to be all
ready. We know it is the policy of the
Administration to strike telling blows, and
we further know that Gen. Hooker is de
lermiued to injure and crush the enemy.
There are now no balky Generals at the
liund of our armies. The McClellans and
Buells and Porters are happily, if tardily,
got rid of. "We look for warm work soon.
The intelligence from Mexico is of the
3ret Importance.- The French troops un
der Forey, have entered the environs of
Puebla, and bold a portion of that city,
won by terrific fighting. In the attack on
one fort five hundred French men bit the
dust. But the beseiged Mexicans hold oat
Etifl.lv, and their dispatches claim that
ihty will yet beat back the foe. We hope
they may.

From Vicksburg, we have in the dis

We give in another part of this issue
Gen. Hooker's crushing testimony against
SlcClcllan. The friends of the latter, if he
lias any left, should get him passed upon
liy a commission set to try idiocy, as the
only method of saving him from the sen
tence of a court martial as a traitor. It is
impossible not to locale his strange con
duct under one or the other head. The
devotion of the Copperheads to Little Mac

account for it

are cordially invited to attend. Repre
sentatives from towns and dries, agri
cultural end other societies, scientific
bodies, corporations, &c., &C-, are all
welcome. The duty, as we understand
it, of the Committee on Invitations,
is to see to it that prominent individual*,
civilians, jurists, &c., &c., as well as the
representatives of cities, societies and pub
lic bodies of various kinds, arc solicited to
be present and add the weight of their in
fluence to this great national enterprise.
Some plan will have to lie adopted as to
bow votes upon important questions shall
be taken. In tbc river and harbor con
vention In 1847, the people and dele
gates from each State determined
how they would vote, each State
casting as many as they had delegates in
Congress. Probably this or some similar
arrangement will be made.
It is understood lhat the railways will
charge only one fare; that is, full tare com

The different Committees arc all hard at
work, and letters from abroad and every
other indication give certain promise that
the Convention will be a great and a tri
umphant success.
Judged by the tone of some of the skulk
ers from that State, who make themselves
as offensive as they dare, in Chicago, keep
ing a careful eye to Burnside’s recent or
der, the inference would be that these
refugees represent the prevalent type of
Kentucky loyalty. Judged by their exam
ple, this means running over to the safe
side, keeping up a loud growling at the
Union and Government, by way of bal
ancing accounts, and maintaining their
deposits with their scccsh brethren who
lake the more honest and manly coarse of
staying behind to fight it out. But there
is a better loyalty in Kentucky, that is
making sacrifices to achieve the redemp
tion of Kentucky, and the restoration of
the Union. The Union Democrats of the
Ninth Congressional district met in Con
vention at Catlettsburg, Ky., on the 23d
inst., and among other resolutions, passed
the following:
J.'ftofred, That it is the duty of all loyal men to

tion of our State, the overthrow of the Govern

It 'vrlll'be a severe spring for Uie Copper
heads. Their day of wrath has already
begun. One of the Union county rioters,
of this State, who resisted the capture of
a deserter, a short rime since, near Jones
boro, has already come to grief in Cincin
nati, and by this time is at hard labor, un
der military guard, off Sandusky. Others
of the fraternity, operating in a little differ
ent part of the rebel field, are to be ignomin
iously shot. Green of Massac, who is soon
to be tried in Cairo under Gen. Burnside's
late order, not long since enforced bis
treasonable utterances by wearing a suit
of butternut cloth in his circuits. lie will
doubtless be sent where that style of ap
parel is in fashion. The end has arrived
with these men. Their punishment will
henceforth be speedy and signal
Our fffounied Infantry*.
Rebel telegrams, in speaking of the valiant
and successful movement of Gen. Dodge, the
commandant at Corinth, against the rebels In
North Mississippi, whom, after a severe fight,
he routed and drove “ from Bear Creek to
Crane Creek,” described it as composed of a
“heavy force of Yankee cavalry.” It was
not, however, a cavalry, hnt an infantry ex
pedition ; and the following extract from a
private letter of an oflicor engaged iu U, writ
ten on the eve of Its starting, will show the
origin of the rebel mistake, and will famish
an excellent idea in connection with such op
erations :
“I expect within a day or two to be out on
an expedition, the character of which I sur
mise to be - raid. Our regiment is all mounted
on mule.-, and a pretty dapping of ears I as
sure you there is. We are called the “ Jack
ass Brigade” by those who don’t admire ns,
but we chum to be Mulish Lancers. How
ever, I till you this is the true mode of light
ing these lellows down here. Celerity of
movement is indispensable, and although it
is no part of our intention to light on the
backs of these long cared quadrupeds, they
will carry us as tunny miles in a day as horses,
and thin we arc ficsh with our infantry drill,
n herein we claim to beat ’em all.”

Whisky by flic ‘•Barrel.**
The r* port of the Committee on the Con
duct of the War shows that Major General
Betgainan F. Butler was asked whether intox
icating liquors arc used in the army.
To this General Butler replied as follows:
“ They are, to a most woful extent.”
As an illustration, General Butler said:
We used to send a picket guard up a milo
and a half from Fortress Monroe. The men
would leave perfectly sober, yet every night
when taer came back we would have trouble
with them on account of their being drunk.
Where they got their liquor from, we could
not tell, Night alter night we instituted a
rigorous examination, but it was always the
same. The men were examined overand over
again, their canteens were inspected, and yet
we could find no liquor about them.
At last it was observed that they seemed to
hold th- 'rr guns up very straight, and upon an
examination being made, it was found that
t verv gun-barrel was filled with whiskey—and
It is not always the soldiers who do this.
I ordered a search of the Adams Express
Company, and examined the packages sent to
the soldiers by tbclr friends, and In one day I
have taken one hundred and fifty different
packages ofliquorfrom the trunks, boxes and
packages sent to the soldiers by their sympa
thizing friends at home.
Gen. Butler says he took measures to sup
press this abuse.

Cross-Examination or Mrs, S.
I*. Everett.
{From Our Own Reporter.]
Joliet, April 29, IS6-L
I did not write you yesterday, simply be
cause there was nothing new to report. The
cross-examination of Mrs. S. L. Everett,
which was commenced on Friday afternoon,
was resumed yesterday, but owing to her in
disposition she retired from the Conrt-room
about an hour after the opening. She has
been upon the stand during the entire ses
sions to day, and up to the hour of adjourn
ment had answered upwards of one hundred
questions, In which, however, very little is
brought ou-- that is not implied in her direct
testimony as published. So far from contra
dicting the statements made on her direct ex
amination. that is strengthened by every
answer given in reply to the questions by the
prosecution. I have as yet to notice the first
contradiction, during her entire examination;
hence it is useless to publish the ccofs•exami
nation, as it would be but a repetition of the
direct, In another forir.
Mrs. Eiciett’s testimony is all the more im
portant, because she has been on the most
intimate terms with lire. ‘White and her
family lor years, and still respects her; and
because she attends from a sense of justice to
the accused, rather than from any desire to
be meddlesome. Until she arrived in Joliet,
I understand that she was not aware whether
she was expected to serve the prosecution or
the defense. Since here, she has answered
interrogations from both, honestly and fear
Certain parties here who took a very x>rom
inent interest in prosecuting this case at the
outset, (and one, in particular, who will figure
bllll more conspicuously before the public
are done with him,) have treated Mrs. Everett
very shabbily during her stay here, so much
so, that her husband has come and will re
main until the close of her examination, to
defend her from any further insults from pre
tended friends and relatives.
As an evidence of the perseverance on the
part ol ihe court to find and stop “ that leak,”
and thereby take away the reporter’s labors
from them, and the proceedings from the pub
lie, I will mention a circumstance that occur
red in the court-room. One ol the gas hom
ers had burned dimly, and bad been almost
useless; it was thus at the close of a certain
day, since which none but the elect bad any
light to enter the Star Chamber. The next
lime it was lighted, it burned bril
liantly, and the discovery was
made that a new burner had been
added. Here was a matter to investigate. If
it were possible that the reporters get their
sounds through the gas pipes, it was very
probable that the exchange was made by thorn,
the larger openings in the new burner giving
them a stronger force of sound from the
court room. It was suggested that the keys
of the two doors be compared to see if that
leading to the Clerk’s office would unlock the
other door, the trial was made, and possibly
the next step will be the arrest of the re
porters for burglary.
The nairation of the two “events” that
have transpired here recently -will tend to ex
hibit to what extent the public mind is en
gaged in considering the ecclesiastical pre
sentment and ideas thereby suggested- The
first is that a Justice was applied to by a far
mer, to know what punishment awaited an
individual guilty of arson. After carefully
considering the subject, and consulting his
boohs, the expounder of “legal lore (lower),
with an eye single” to justice, replied that,
“according to the law as set forth m the 13th
Illinois, and as decided by the highest legal
authority, he would be required to support
Uie child.” The’secoud illustration is the fact
•but a suit has been instituted against a well
known citizen, 50 years old, who is charged by
her parents with taking improper liberties
with a little girl of 10. 11c has already em
ployed counsel to make an effort to compro
mise the manor, but *‘no compromise,” Is the
reply of the prosecution.
The Court adjourned over until Friday
afternoon, that the National Fast Day may be
observed; though if the “humiliation” of
Themselves is what they aim to accomplish, the
attendants upon the Star Chamber can hardly
mend the matter by adjourning—as they can
-candy engage in any ceremonies more
deeply humiliating than this trial, as at pres
ent. Invisible.

encouraging desertions from the army. The

The Rebel Scheme Knocked in the
St. Lons, April 29.—The correspondent of
of the Democrat , with Gen. Van Dcvcr’s com
mand, says: At about 10 o’clock Sunday
night, a rebel regiment, under Col. Ilinton,
the advance 'guard of Marmaduke’a army,
which was- then retreating from Capo Girar
deau, was surprised, three miles west Jack
son, while cooking supplies ond loitering
around their camp-fires. Two small how
itzers, loaded with musket halls, and hauled
by liand within thirty yards of them, were
simultaneously discharged, killing a large
lumber. At the same time the Ist lowa car
ally, charged them, nnd not a man of their
entire regiment (it is supposed) escaped. All
■who were not killed, were taken prisoners.
Ail their horses, camp equipage, and several
thousand dollars’ worth of stolen plunder,
were captured.
Early the next morning, Gen. Van Deter
advanced and saw the main body of the ene
my in full retreat. He immediately followed,
keeping up a constant artillery tire on their
rear. At S o’clock, Gen. McNeill joined Gen.
Van Dover, and the combined force continued
the pursuit.
Firing was heard all the afternoon, and it Is
scarcely possible that the rebels am escape
with their booty. Gen. Harmadnkc’s com
mand consists of Missourians, Arkansans and
Texans. They left Powhattan, Arkansas, on
the 15th, ostensibly to occupy Pilot Knob,
and to mako Cape Girardeau os a base of
operations for the projected expedition under
Gen. Price, this summer, but really for plun
der. The force was composed of four bri- 1
gades, under Gen. Shelby and Cols. Burbridgo
and Greene. They had ten pieces of artillery.
The let Nebraska infantry, under Col. Ban
ner, did most of the fighting in the rebel at
tack on Cape Girardeau, and behaved with
great gallantry. They were posted in the
woods, about n mile from town, and kept
Mannadnke’s whole force in check, while the
guns from the forts played upon them, doing
considerable execution. The rebel batteries
did no injury to the town. The enemy’s loss
is about GO killed and 200 wounded.

Ohio, was tried before the same Court for
publicly declaring sympathy with the rebels,
contrary to order No. 3S, and assaulting a
loyal citizen who reprWed him for his ex
pressions, and was found guilty and sentenced
to confinement at hard labor on Johnson’s
Island for lonr months.
Wm. McElroc, a citizen of Jasper county,
Illinois, was tried on the charge of aiding the
escape of deserters, near Jonesboro, Illinois,
on the 16th of April, and the Court found
him guilty and imposed a flue of SSOO
on him, and confinement until paid. Both of
these sentences were also approved by Gen.
Burnside, and Dodge and McElroe were to
day sent to Johnson’s Island to serve out
their sentences.
The knowledge that these trials are in pro-
gress has the most salutary ctfoct on our
scccsh sympathizers. Gen. Burnside assured
two very prominent Democratic politicians
of the butternut stripe, whom be sent for
yesterday, that they need expect no leniency
from him, for if he caught them expressing
sympathy for the rebels, he ghonld not hesi
tate to try them by Court Martial at once.

between four and live thousand, with half a

New Toek, April 29.—The steamer Shell

this evening.
Vera Cruz dates of the 13th, per a French
war steamer, state that Puebla was complete
ly surrounded on the 23d ult. The attack
commenced on the 27th, and the Penitentiary
was carried by assault. On the 31st, Fort St
Xavier was also taken. On the Slst, after
entering the city, the French forced through
the first barricades of the two principal stTeets
leading to the plazo and cathedral, both of
which are fortified.
The soldiers then entered tbc houses, and
aided by sappers and miners, passed from ono
Louse to another, and on the Sd of April had
thus worked their way to within 100 metres
of the Plaza.
Up to that date the French hadlostsGoto
CGQ killed and wounded.
It Is estimated that the entire force of Or
tega in the city was 25,000.
The bridge over the Kio Prieto was held by
the French, thus preventing Comoafort
with 12,000 reinforcements from crossing.
Another arrival from Vera Cruz the 16th
states that a mail from Puebla had been re
ceived, containing advices of tbo capture of
the Plaza and Cathedral, bnt the city was still
commanded by the forts Guadalonpeand Loe

fire on the French.
Puebla was filled with barricades. One

be in their possession, as the result of thir

his soldiers.
Intelligent persons think Forey has maneu-
Tcred to enclose the Mexican army in Puebla,
and Trill ultimately capture them all, more
than twenty thousand in number.

take an encouraging view, and say the be*
sieged forces are fully able to repulse tbc

There are sixty-four fortified buildings in

Blot In Selintiburg, Union County,
[From the Middlchnrp \Pa.> ‘Weekly Tribune,
April 22 ]
It becomes our painful duty to chronicle
one of the saddest, and, at the same time, one
of the most daring and damnable attempts at
dtfving the laws'" anil the Government that
has*yet occurred in this section of the country.
To make the matter clear, it becomes ne*
cessarj’ to enter somewhat into detail.
When tbc draft was made in October hist, a
young man, by tbc name of James Hummel,
of Mlddleercek township, voluntarily enter
ed Into an arrangement with Mr.’AzarlaU
Krceger, to go as a substitute for the latter,
who was drafted into the service of the Uni
ted States. This arrangement was made.
Hummel look the money, oral least a part of
It, and went to Harrisburg, where he was
sworn into the service of the United Slates,
aud Mr. Krceger accordingly discharged.
Hummel remained at Harrisburg a short
time, and then deserted, thereby defnvudlug
the Government out of the services of Mr.
Krceger, to which it was call led, aud also
Mr. Krceger out of his money, by not giving
value therefor.
This man Hummel, together with some
other deserters, since the time of their deser
tion, have been defying the authorities and
threatening to kill any* man who should at
tempt to arrest them. They, however, found
U convenient to secret themselves whenever
the guards w» re about, which fact was duly
heralded by the Tory organ, the Sellusgrove
Thus things went on until last Saturday,
when Captain Cox, who is stationed at this
place, by some mcans'lcarncd that there was
to be a funeral at New Berlin, at which it was
quite probable that Hummel would be pres
ent. He accordingly ordered Sergeant Kep
bart and an assistant to New Berlin, very
reasonably presuming that no resistance
would bc’made, and bloodshed avoided.
But he was sadly mistaken; these despera
does were fully armed for any emergency.
The Sergeant, with his assistant, entered the
church and walked right up to Hummpl. tap
ped him on the shoulder, and commanded him
to surrender, upon which Hummel drew a
revolver and fired two loads at Mr. Kephart,
when the Sergeant tired, hitting Hummel in
the side, the ball passing, it is said, through
his lungs.
He, however, discharged two more barrels
at the Sergeant after he was wounded. While
this scene was being enacted, the friends of
Qnmmcl, some fifteen or twenty in number,
rushed upon the officer with revolvers, and
some with their fists, beating and clubbing
him and his assailant, and firing their pistols
at them.
We are told that there were some eleven
shots fired during the melee, of which the
officers, in discharge of their duty, fired only
four. , .
Sergeant Kephart and his aid made their
escape from the enraged rebels without in
jury, except a little scratch upon the knuckle
of one of the fingers of the Sergeant; two
balls, however, passed through his coat, and
one rested In the lining of his vest, which he
extracted, on Sunday, without much pain.
The last news wo have from Hummel is, that
he Is not expected to live.
