MONDAY, MAT 18, 18C3
the concmmoK txxr.
The very gratifying news contained in
onr dispatches from Washington, yes
- terday morning, that Secretary Stanton
finds a Uiousanti practical as well as pat
riotic difficulties in adopting the construc
tion of the Conscription Law, which is
contended for by the men to whom tho
stun of three hundred-dollars, instead of
personal service in the armies of the He-
. public, is a bagatelle, wiU serve to reassure
- *■ the multitudes of thinking men in the coun
,. try who began to fear that the law would
prove a ruinous failure. The case as it now
; stands before the Secretary, seems to be eu
- lively dear. He has been invested with
discretionary power by Congress, evidently
with the expectation, on the part of the
law-making body, that he would be guided
in his action by the exigencies of the
puulic service. The want is soldiers—sol
diers—soldiers who will fight; and that,
not the desire of Mr. A or Mr. B, to get
cheaply off by the payment of what he
-■would spend in a single dinner-party, is to
be met. *We have satisfactory assurances
that Mr. Stanton’s firmness and patriotism
are equal to the emergency, and that ho
•will decline the office of substitute broker
to which he was conditionally elected by
the terms of the Conscription act. If he
stands firm, the broken ranks of the army
WiU be promptly filled up with the best
material that the country affords. Cop
perheadism, defeated in its designs, will
kick, and possibly when the representa
tivca thereof arc called upon to shoulder a
musket, may attempt violence. But we
know no betrtr time than the present to
tty titles with that element in onr national
troubles. So let the act be enforced I
lIALLECK HAS FAILED!
It is not uncommon in civil life to find
men to whom a large endowment of brains
is given, who are able to comprehend and
master the themy of any profession, who
are thoroughly “ posted” in the literature
of their calling, who think well about what
concerns them most, and who are never at
fitnlt for ideas or words when they write
but who, in the active pursuit of the busi
ness that they have chosen as the means of
making a reputation and securing wealth
and position, are able to achieve nothing.
How often we sec learned physicians who
kill every patient they touch; lawyers,
who, deeply read in the princijiles and his
toty of jurisprudence, have no success in
court; clergymen, who, with profound
piety and willingness to sacrifice them
selves for the good of others, innocently
and wonderingly disperse every religious
society to which they are called; engineers,
knowing mathematics and the physical
qualities of the materials with which
they deal, “ like a book,” who never build
a bridge that will support its own weight,
or an engine that can be persuaded to do
Us expected work. In all these instances,
the difference between that mental recep
tivity that comprehends princijiles, and
the intuition of the relation and fitness of
firings which applies principles to cases—
in a word, the difference between theory
and practice—is wbat the unfortunates
cannot overcome. “To preach is one
thing; hut to practice is another!” is an
adage probably as old as the experience of
mankind.
From the way that the war goes on, we
fear that a man, in whom the theoiy of
siilitaiy Science and the practice of the
Military Art, are not in harmony, is the
real though not the responsible head of
pur armies, and the cause of all our misfor
tunes. TVe refer of course to General Hal
leck, Mr. Lincoln’s military adviser—the
planner and director of all the campaigns
that have failed—and what campaign has
been successful?—since he assumed Ida
present place.
General Halleck, in whatever concerns
the literature of his profession is unques
tionably learned, and he is as unquestion
ably a roan of mind. His soubriquet, “ Old
Brains,” is not undeserved. But his con
nection with the war, from the day he as
sumed command at St. Louis, down to the
present moment, including of course his
campaign in Tennessee and the famous
strategelical fiasco at Corinth, is evidence,
than which nothing can be more conclu
de, that he lacks the quickness to see and
readiness to comprehend the relation of
armed cause to victorious effect—the intu
ition of a soldier—which all great com
manders have as a gift, not as an
acquisition from books, and withoutwhich
no man can compel success to attend him
And this is not a harsh judgment. The
dreary record of failures which the past
year has counted up, each contributing its
full share to the darkening of the outlook
Of to-day, forces us to declare it, and to ex
press what we believe is the wish of the
people of the Republic, that the President
may send him to the rear, and cither take
upon himself the active duties of supreme
command, or call about him others who
arc fitted for the labor that must be done.
Gancral Hallcck, with the resources ot the
nation at his disposal, ordering the best
troops that the world affords hither and
thither at his will, and exercising almost
regal power, has failed; and the President
of the United States, upon whose head the
blunders, ignorance and ineffectiveness of
subordinates, arc finally heaped, and who
must be judged in history as he wins or
loses in the fight, should not be
the last man to recognize the fact.
In expressing opinions like these—the
result of earnest conviction and of impera
tive duty—we are prepared to hear the
darner of a thousand new assailants, whom
the disturbing ot the established order of
things will wake up. We hear in advance
the charge of political hate, of persona
malevolence, and of presumptions igno
ranee thatflippantly criticises the General-
in-cbieC To the two first charges wo are
bo accustomed, that they excite no feeling
now; to the last we can only say that we
know as well when a campaign has failed
or when a battle is lost, as General Halleck
Or any of his friends; and we know, too,
that that is success in war which sucecds.'
And though we may not be able to esti
mate in advance the strategetical value of
any contemplated movement or combina
tion, we can sec in the declared result—in
the pressing forward of our troops or the
discomfiture and retreat—the effect of that
which has been done. By his wotks as
they stand before the countrv, we guage
ouropmmnofthe General's military worl
Will any of his friends point out to us the
great things that he has accomplished
things that warrant his continuance where
he is—the nation’s hindrance of victory?
A GENUINE COPPERHEAD.
If such a magnate of the old Democrat
ic party as John L. O’Sullivan, formerly
editor of the Democratic Hetiaa in its
palmiest days, has any authority to put a
plank into the yet undeclared Copperhead
platform, that structure is as likely to he
as infamous as the men who are putting it
together. In one of his recent letters to
Diis country, from London, where, since
his mission as United States Ambassador

refill OLD GBEEIET,
Poor Old Greeley, who, between his fits
of boo-hooing over the necessity which
compels our soldiers to cat meat and han
dle villainous saltpetre, is almost as fiercely
rampant as a belligerent rabbit, has been
making a speculation while be overflowed
with fieiy zeal to put the rebels down.
Now, if he docs not write an article for his
paper to-morrow morning, in which the
right of the seceders to go out of the Union
is contended for, with that peculiar logic
for which he is distinguished, his party
friends will he lucky. “ About these days,
expect Greeley to make an ass of him
self!” is a quasi prediction which would
not be falsified if written on eveiy page of
the current calendar, “These days’“are
approaching again; is it not more than a
week since he admitted, by implication
that the rebels are right ?
A FINANCE., t OTEASUKE.
. After conquering the rebels, and restor
ing peace, to amend the Federal Constitu
tion to the extent oi authorizing an export
duty on cotton and tobacco, and thus shift
the burden of our national debt upon
those who must have these two great sta
ples of the country, will be an easy task,
and one that will be accomplished with
little opposition for which our legislators
need care.
Advertising Tor a Wife.
Marriage is honorable in all; and it is quite
right that young men and women should
come together, and cozen each other to this
end, aim and object of sexal difference and
distinction. They could not help it, indeed,
if they would; for nature has put it into
eveiy human heart to demand love as the ne
cessity ot its existence, and she hides beneath
this impassioned feeling, thin intoxication of
the soul and sense of John in this alley, for
pietty Poll, and the rosy cheeks in that—her
ulterior and arcane purposes, of which the
statist who makes out the census is the best
exponent.
The month of May, too, is perhaps the be;
month in all the year for young folks to fill
in love, and go a-wo'oing in. Queen Eliza
beth, who true as tender as a chick upon this
subject, and went oil like a train of gunpow
der, beneath the fiery eyellashes ot any hand
some gentleman—from Raleigh to Lcicester
nsod to say that she dare not trust herself in
such companionship among the cowslips, and
and daisies, the daffodils and violets which
spangle the meadows and woods of England
in this gay, merry and amorous month—espe
cially if a milk-maid should happen to be
singing a love-ditty, hard by, to her cowl
for fear she should lose her heart, which
would have been a sad loss indeed for so
maidenly a Queen, and a just cause, no doubt
for court scandal! ’
All Elizabeths are not made of such tinder
as Elizabeth Queen, however, and it would
not be good for them if they were. But it is
nevertheless true that this pleasant May-time
is a sweet fosterer of mutual affections when
two young lovers tempt it In the open adds
or the retirement of woods. Everything
seems to invite nearer and still nearer per
sonal approaches, and endearments—and it
would not be surprising if the music and de
licious rapture of untold kisses mingled at
hist with the song of the birds and the bill
ing and cooing of the doves.
Lovers’ walks, if we rightly remember, arc
usually taken with this object in view, either
expressed or understood, but mostly the lat
ter, as being more modest and reticent; and
it would be astonishing, if it were not so emi
nently natural, to consider what subterfuges,
and pretty enough, though rather lame ex
cuses, a girl even in the full blush of woman
hood, will resort to, if she expects her lover,
that she may hoodwink her parents and guar
dians, and steal away from all eyes to meet
him.
Of course the end and meaning of all this
is the curious state of matrimony, which a wo
man looks upon as the be all and end all of
her life. Audio think what pains and trouble
she will take to get into it—never asking her
self If she may not hereafter, be driven into
taking the same, or greater pains and trouble
to get out of it! Socrates, who wasn’t, it is
true, altogether an Apollo in his person and
the fashion of his features, but a good Judge
of matrimony from experience, was thought
by many a Greek maiden in his time, to be a
surly, unmannerly ogre, because he said, and
was ready to maintain against all comers, that
those who were out ol it wanted to get in it,
and those who were in it get out of
it. It was doubtless a wicked libel upon the
Institution, so far as the latter part of the pos
tulate Is concerned; or, at ail events it would
be so, if there were not so many separations
from bed and board, and so many downright
and absolute divorces.
The numbers, however, who want to bo ini
tiated into the secrets of the Matrimonial So
ciety, and take up the degree of wife, is tar
greater than those who, having tried the mys
-1 cry, pronounce it a humbug, like “The
Thousand and One Order,” andarereadv to
expose the whole affair, as an Insult to wom
anhood, and a -wrong against the righto
thereof ®
This is encouraging, especially to poor
batcheiors out of luck; and if any woman
hater should bo inclined to doubt the fact we
would like to astonish him by referring him
to the flics of the TiinunvE for the last month
or so. He will there And plenty of can
didates for the suffrages of Hymen-if ho
should happen to know snch a chap-both
male and female. And furthermore, if he
could slyly ensconce himself behind the ad
vertising counters, and see the scores, nay
hundreds of pretty girls who bring advertise
ments for husbands, or answers to advertise
ments for wives, or who come to mate Inqui
ries. and see if they can flsb up anything or
learn whether they arc being, or about to be
gulled, or not, he would come over to our
side, like Domino Sampson, withhis cxclama
lion, “Prodigious 1”
And if the newspapers of the West are
taken as a basis for the calcnla’ion, the evi
dence would be overwhelming, and one would
wonder where onairth the women came from.
We know a practical joker who deals in this
sort of fun, and tldnks it jolly; and ho savs
he has had upwards of five hundred letters
from loving girls, all eager to get themselves
hooked on to his lines, within a single week ’
And we have no donbt of it Now, gallant
young gentlemen in the army make It known,

We remained at Pars Gibson until four
o clock in the afternoon of Saturday, until
the Pioneer Corps had constructed a passable
bridge over the South Branch of Bajou Pierre
and then resumed the march.
A few miles west of Port Gi bson the advance
found in a forest by the roadside two immense
piles of bacon, each covering an area of 2,500
square feet, piled as high as the branches of
the forest trees, and each containing, by esti
mate, 40,000 pounds. Tho enemy counting
upon an easy victory at Thompson’s Hills,
(not Baldwin’s Hills, as I wrote you) had
loaded his train with these supplies, and his
retreat was so hurried that he had not time to
remove or destroy them. Of course these as
well as an abundance of tents fell into our
possession.
BRIDGE ACROSS BATOU PIERRE.
Four miles beyond on the direct road to
Raymond we came to the main branch of the
Bayou “ Big Bayou Pierre” as the natives call
it. This Bayou extends from the Mississippi
at Brnnisbuig, and is crossed at this point by
a substantial iron suspension bridge. The
flooring is timber, and this the retreatino

Are. Owing to tbc greenness of the lumber
it did not bum readily, and our advance guard
was able to extinguish the flames, before the
flooring was entirely consumed. The struc
ture was strengthened by passing large ropes
underneath, and a few bouses and barns close
at hand readily furnished the plank to renew
the flooring. We encamped here Saturday
night, iatigned by hard fighting and loss of
sleep. Thearmy was exhaustedand thecamp

[Editorial Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.
■Wasuinotok, May 13, 1863.
“ TUB SITUATION.”
The statement published in the New Tork
T,ma of Monday, and repeated in several
other papers, that Hooker's army was again
crossing the Rappahannock, has no fomida
tion, in fact. Nothing iargerthan small bodies
of cavalry, sent across to reconnoiter, has
crossed since the battles, except details sent
over to bury the dead and remove the
wounded, under a flag of truce. The long
circumstantial account of the movements ot
army corps, and the rccrossing of the
Rappahannock, described in' the Washington
letter to the Philadelphia Press, and widely
copied, is purely imaginary. There is not a
word of truth in it. Hooker’s army occupies
its old cantonments along the east side of the
river, with its headquarters at Falmouth.
When an advance will be made, is not known
outside of Hooker himself. The best opinion
here is, that weeks may first elapse. That It
will not be to-morrow, or next day, may be
safely predicted.
THE RELATIVE LOSSES.
Kow, that the smoke has cleared away that
covered up the carnage of the week’s strug
gle, an estimate approximating the truth may
be made of the respective losses in killed
wounded and prisoners. From all I can learn
by collecting facts, circumstances and reports
the result will not vary far from the following
figures; Federal loss—killed, 2,500; wound
cd.ASOO; prisoners, 5,000-but at least 1 500-
of the latter were wounded that fellinto’the
hands of the enemy; total loss of Hooker’s
12 ’ 600 mcn - Eebel loss-3,300 killed,
8,000 wounded, 3,500 prisoners; total rebel
loss, 15,600 men, and Stonewall Jackson, who
was worth 20,000 mcn to the Confederate
caUEe ' Tllc rel) els claim to have taken 8,000
to 10,000 prisoners; bnt they always overrate
their achievements In this respect, and nnder
rate-their losses, as the test of the cartel of
exchange invariably proves. If their preten-
T, D 3 Tf^ 110 ' thCy wonld hold an ““ss of
at least 50,000 prisoners to-day; when, in fact
the Federals can exhaust every man of ours
they have, and will still have in their posses
sion six to ten thousand rebels, left over.
CONDITION OF THE TWO ARMIES,
Neither army is in condition to renew the
contest. It ■will take some time to recupe
rate, reorganize and get ready to re-com
mence the struggle, ifooker is kin- a “o“d

The confidence of the soldiers in General
Hooker has not abated a particle. Thev saw
him extricate the army when all seemed In
confusion and the battle lost, and by P< Smnft
daring, quick movements and skillful handlin"
of troops, check the rebel rush, rollback their

TIIK CENSOltSnir— WHENCE IT EMANATED.
The censorship on the dispatches concern
ins the doings of the Rappahannock army con
tinnes as vigorous as ever. Nothing is allow
ed to be telegraphed from here respecting that
army. No mutter whetherit relates to events
that occurred two weeks ago or yesterday
The exclusion is complete. The poUcy of this
course is not apparent to the public, and the
fraternity of the Press mnrmnr at what seems
to be an arbitrary, useless order. I was curi
ous to know from whence it proceeded and
the reason for it. Inanity at the proper quar
ter furnished the desired Information. The
suppression of the dispatches is not the work
of cither Secretary Stanton or General Hai
leck, hnt of General Hooker. Ho made the
demand of the War Department before setting
out on his recent campaign, that not a word
concerning the operations of his army should
he telegraphed from this city to any newspa
per or person until he should give permision.
The request was complied with to the letter]
and the lightnings have been dumb. But at
the same time he imposed no further or other
restrictions on correspondents who wish to
write than to tell the truth, sign their names
to what they write, and relate nothing con
cerning intended movements or what the
army may be doing at the time.
Gen. Hooker’s motive for establishing this
rule Is simply to gain time and delay informa
tion sent from his army in reaching the ene
my, to put forty-eight bourse between the oc
currence of an event and tho knowledge of it
in Richmond or in Lee’s camp. Before tho
news transmitted by the correspondents with
the army, or picked up, or dug out by tho
correspondents located here, can reach Phila
delphia or New York, by mall or express, bo
put in type and published, and get back into
Scccssia, the harm that such intelligence
might do him is passed, while at tho same
time the people of the North get tho news in
detail without haring to wait unreasonably
long, even in these last times.
NO VISITORS TO THE ARMY.
Gen. Hooker has adopted anotherrnie—that
of forbidding civilians to visit his army. No
permits arc granted here by the War Depart
ment to civilians to go down to Falmouth
without permission from Gen. Hooker, except
in a few cases of emergency, such as going
after a wounded officer or the body of a killed
one. He says he don’t want any hnt com
battants or persons having official business to
come within his lines. This rule is rigorous
ly enforced, and hundreds who flocked to
Washington when the news went forth that
his army was on the move, were forbidden to
go down the river or to land at Aqnla Creek-
After spending their money pretty profusely*
they retunicd whence they cLic tte

depriying htra of his command, and
elbowing him out into the wet •
and it is also true that ho threw obstacles in
his way here, as far as he dare; bnt the Pro
eldent and Secretary of War are friendly to
Sigel, so that Hallcek could only show his
teeth and growl, hut dare not bite. The great
trouble with Sigel was, that he expected and
asked too mnch. He was not content with
the place assigned him. He wanted more
or a corps; he demanded a
grand division to command. It will be re
membered that when Gen. Burnside took
the Potomac army last Nofiem

partly given to him. At first he was placed
™ r v tj - ° r S?y a* a rSSSS
ifawnre. Bata part of this force was
shortly afterwards detached, and sent to Gens,
iox, Feck, and Foster. Other regiments were
Rbrorbcd into the main army, and some were
detailed lor the fortifications abont Washing
ton. Sigel soon found his “reserve corn*’
dwindle down to the magnitude of a few
brigades, and nothing specially left for him to
do. He became much dissatisfied, and threat
ened to resign. Meanwhile Gen. Hooker was
assigned to command the Potomac army. He
immediately broke up the three grand divi
sions made by Burnside Into seven
army corps ol twenty-seven to ‘ thirty
regiments each, and put all his cav
nliy into one grand division under Gen.
atom mas. The artillery was assigned to
each division in suitable proportions. Over
these army corps he placed Sedgwick. Conch,
Meade, Sykes, Slocnm, Sickles, and offered the
11th Corps to Gen. Sigel, which was mostly
composed of Germans; but the latter for
some reason neglected to accept it on the
instant, and it was given to Gen. Howard.
This left Sigel without a command higher
than a division of nine regiments, which was
eiill open to him, but he refused to accept
and tendered his commission to the Presi
dent, which the latter refused to accept, hut
gave him thirty days leave of absence to think
over the mutter, which was renewed once or
twice. The buttle of Chancellorsville was
fought, and lost by the bad behavior of the
• German corps, and Hooker felt obliged to re
treat across the Rappahannock to make pren
orations for a new start. The President on
heating of the reverse to the army
hastened down to the headquarters

ttietraphed to New Tork for Sigel, who
obeyed the summons and instantly renalred

THE SITUATION OX THE RAPP.UIAXXOCK.
The Etoiies with which the New York and
Philadelphia papers have been teeming
for the last few days, concerning the move”
merit of Gen. Hooker’s army across the Rap
pahannock again, are, of course, mere lubri
cations throughout. Gen. Hooker was, at 10
o’clock this morning, quietly at his head
quarters at Falmouth, and the army was en
camped along the old line, up and down the
river from Falmouth, which it occupied all

been the appointment of a disproportionfte
number of Officers to the number of- men in a

There is considerable anxiety here on ac
