WEDNESDAY, MAT 20, 1803.
WORTH FIGHTING FOB.
If out of the long list of reverses, each
in itself wholly conclusive, why the war
should be carried on until the rebels of the
South arc compelled to abandon that bogus
government that they have set up, and
confess their obedience to the Constitution
and the laws of the United States, we
should be asked to point out, one mightier
than any other, we should reply thus:
The curse of the governments of the
Old World is in their standing armies,
which are maintained for offensive and de
fensive operations, made necessaiy by the
unnatural divisions of territory, by the
jealous and ambitious rulers, and
hr the modem necessity of pre
serving among European States the
balance of power. These armies, to use a
common and homely illustration, bum the
National candle at each end; they subtract
an enormous amount of labor from the
total of that source of National wealth,
and, at the same time, impose upon the la
bor and industry devoted to ordinary and
peaceful pursuits, a heavy and, in some
cases, unbearable burden of taxation for
the support of the men in the service of the
State. And while they consume the sub
stance of the people they make ameliora
tion of their condition a thing unattain
able, except by revolution,which is in itself
a calamity, next only to bad government
It is, we think, a mistaken notion,
which says these armies are maintained
solely for the subordination of the govern
ed classes. We have that faith in our
common humanity which makes us believe
that with the exceptions that belong to all
generalizations, the kings,emperors, dukes,
princes and kaisers who dominate modem
Europe, arc sincerely desirous, to make
their people prosperous and happy; and
that the strong manifestations of physical
force which are a part of European
governments, are not so much to
insure domestic tranquillity and or
der, as for external security and peace.
The arming is a part of the governmental
system—a relic of barbarism, it is true—
which each must pursue, impelled thereto
by the example of the rest Imagine Prus
sia, surrounded by France, Austria and
Russia, and menaced from the sea by En
gland—imagine her without an army, and
how long, we ask, would she, in the con
tests for tenitoiy, for continental influence
and power, be secure in her position of in
dependence, and what would heher weight
in European affairs. Imagine insular En
gland, with her vast colonial possessions,
without a navy, how would the United
States, a first-class marine power, tolerate
the course that she has thought fit to pur
sue since the rebellion broke out? or in the
case of any international dispute, how
could she appeal from violated international
law to the universal law of force?
If this Union is dissolved, it breaks up,
not into nearly equal parts, the measure
being either territory, population, wealth
or military strength, put into half a dozen
or more fragments, each the rival and each
the enemy of all the others. A Standing
At my for even- one would be a necessity that
no European State eo situated, has been able
to avoid. The substance of the people would
be eaten up, A class—the class military—
would be formed, claiming special honors
and special exemptions. The liberties of
the people, now not in the least en
dangered by what the Copperheads
call the exercise of “ arbitrary power,”
would surely be undermined and destroy
ed. Taxation, already unexampled in this
land, would be doubled; and in the course
of less than half a centuiy, the prophecy
of an English statesman, that America is
hereafter to be a land of rival interests, of
diplomacy, of jarring and discor
dant States, and of wars, would
be fulfilled to the letter. Lucky
when that day comes will be the
people that preserves any part of the price
less liberty that our countrymen in the
Korlh now enjoy. Lucky will be the
cause of Republicanism and Democracy
throughout the world, if in this country,
the home if not the birth-place of both, a
a vestige of cither remains.
“We set forth the mightiest reason for the
continuation of the war until the subjuga
tion of the rebels, and the restoration of the
Union are complete. It is one that, in the
mind of every patriotic man, should be
ever present, wanning him to new
, courage, new efforts and new sacrifices.
The country as it was—an unity—strong
in its unused resources—secure by its posi
tion—happy from the benignity of its in
stitutions—that is the object of the contin
ued struggle I
OTTE CONSTITUTIONALITY OP TUB
FBOCLAIQATIOI OP THE PRESI
DENT SUSTAINED BY TCTESU
jPREWB COURT OF THE UNITED
In the case of “claimants of the
Schooner Brilliant and other vessels va
The United States, decided at the last
term of the United States Supreme Court,
Judge Greir, in delivering the opinion of
the Court, says: “To legitimate the cap
ture of a neutral vessel or property on the
high seas, a war must exist de facto" He
then proceeds to inquire whether a state
of tear existed at the time the blockade
*was instituted, and says: “ "War has been
11 defined to be, ihdt state in xchicX a nation
prosecutes its rightshy force. The parties
•‘belligerent in a public war are indopen
“ dent nations. But it is not necessary to |
“constitute war, that both parlies should j
“ be acknowledged aa independent nations
“or sovereign statca. A war may exist
“ where one of the belligerent* claims eov
“ crign rights as against the other.
“ Insurrection against a government may
“ or may not culminate in organized rebel
“ lion, but a civil war always begins by in
-41 Burrection against the lawful authority of
“ the government. A civil war is never
“ solemnly declared. * * * When the party
•« in rebellion occupies and holds in a hos
me pftrinßT & pertain portion of territory,
•‘have declared their independence, have
44 cast off their allegiance, have t organized
“anniea, have committed hostilities against
“theirformer sovereign, the world ack
-41 nowledges them as belligerents, and the
“contest as war. * ♦ ♦ If a war be made
“ by invasion of a foreign nation, the Pres
“ ident is not only authorized but bound to
•“resist force by force. ♦ ♦ ♦ And whether
“ the hostile party be a foreign invader, or
“ states organized in rebellion, it is not the
“less a war. * * * It Is not the less a
“ civil war, with belligerent parties in hos
“ tile array, because it may be called an in
“ eurreclion by one ride, and the insurgents
“be considered at rebels or traitors.” * *
“ The law of nations is also called the
“ law of nature; it is founded on the cozn
“mon consent as well as the common
“ sense of the world. It contains no such
44 anomalous doctrine as that which this
44 Court arc now for the first time desired
44 to pronounce, to-wit: That insurgents
44 who have risen in rebellion against their
44 sovereign, expelled his courts, established
44 a revolutionary government, organized
44 armies, and commenced hostilities, are
44 not enemies > because they are traitors;
44 and a war levied on the government by
44 traitors, in order to dismember and dc
-44 stroy it, is not a tear, because it is an in
-44 suircction.”
He then proceeded to show that it be
longed to the President to determine
when such a state of things existed, as to
compel him to accord to the insurgents
the character of belligerents, and that 44 he
14 must ascertain what degree of force the
44 crisis demands.” He then declares; “The
44 right of one belligerent not only to co
-44 erce the other by direct force, but also to
u cripple his resources by the seizure or
u destruction of his property, is a necessary
41 result of a state of war* Money and
44 wealth, the products of agriculture and
44 commerce, are arid to be tbe sinews of
44 war, and as necessary in its conduct as
44 numbers and physical force. Hence it is
44 that the laws of war recognize the rights
4 ‘ of a belligerent to cut these sinews of the
“power of the enemy, by capturing h!fl
“ properly on the high seas.”
He then examines the position assumed,
that inasmuch as in the seceded States
there were persons who arc loyal in their
feelings, and never yielded a voluntary
obedience to the insurgent Government,
they and their property are to be treated
as loyal citizens, till legally convicted of
having renounced their allegiance and
made war against the Government by
treasonably resisting its laws; “that the
confiscation of their property can be effect
“ed only under municipal law; that by
‘ ‘ the law of the land, such confiscation can
“ not take place without the conviction of
“ the owner of such offence.”
“This argument” ho says, “rests on
“ two assumptions, each of which is with
“ out foundation on the established law of
“ nations.” He assumes "that when a civil
war exists, the parly belligerent claiming
to be sovereign, cannot, for some unknown
reason, exercise the rights of belligerents,
although the revolutionary party may.
Being sovereign, he can only exercise
sovereign rights over the other party.
The insurgent may be killed on the .battle
field, or by the executioner, his property
on land may bo confiscated under the
municipal law, but the commerce on
the ocean, which supplies the rebels with
means to support the war, cannot be made
the subject of capture under the laws of
war, because it is unconstitutional All
persons residing within this Territory (the
rebellious States) whose property may be
used to increase the resources of the hostile
power, are in this contest liable to be treat
ed as enemies, though not foreigners. They
have cast off their allegiance and made war
on their Government, and are not less ene
mies because traitors.
Major Tlios. 1». Robb.
Our readers will remember seeing in our
columns occasional letters from our old friend
and fellow citizen, Major Robb, as well as re
ferences to his work; but it may well bo as
sumed that the community at largo knows
little of the extent and value of the services
he is rendering. Offeringhis services to the
Sanitary Commission, and going with the
delegation sent by the Commission after the
fight at Donelson, to aid in nursing and car
ing for the sick and wounded of the army, be
became so deeply interested in the work, that
he has given himself wholly to it ever since.
His tact and efficiency commended him so
decidedly to Gov. Tates, that the Governor at
once placed him upon his staff, and located
him as State agent at Jackson, Tennessee, to
have the care of such of the Illinois volun
teers as should need aid in the Department of
West Tennessee. Here quietly and unobtru
sively, Major Robb has remained, summer and
winter, discharging most faithfully and suc
cessfully his important duties, winning for
himself and bis State the highest meed of
praise, not only from the volunteers from our
own State, but also from the entire army.
Uis faithfulness, his discretion, his ready sym
pathy, have endeared him alike to officers and
men, and the memory of his mauy acts of
kindness and charity will be always fresh in
their hearts.
It Is with the deepest regret we read in a
Memphis paper the sad bereavement that has
befallen our friend in the loss of his youngest
son, a notice of which will be found In this
paper under the proper head.
The Conlrabaud Soldiers.
Gen. Hunter writes to Gov. AndrcVr of
Massachusetts, under date of Port Royal, May
4th, strongly complimentary of the colored
regiments in his department. He speaks of
them as hardy, brave, patient and obedient,
and says that with the brigade of liberated
slaves already in tbe field, and a few regiments
of intelligent colored men from the North, he
would place them in a condition to make an
extensive incursion upon the mala land,
through the most densely populated slave re
gions; and from an expedition of this charac
ter he doubts not that the most beneficial re

Washington, May 15, 1863.
THE DKAFT.
A draft for 300}b00 men will shortly be or
dered by the President, for the purpose of
filling up the old regiments. It is not the
present intention to form any new regiments.
There is no time to drill and prepare regi
ments for this campaign. Recruits sent into
old regiments will be more fit for field service
in thirty days than they would bo In six
months if put into new regiments under
green officers. It will toe far toeiter for the
conscripts that they be assigned to the old
regiments and placed among the veterans who
have experience in the routine and duties of
the camp, and who understand how to avoid
many things that injure health, and cause
sickness. The old bronzed warriors know
how to cook, wash, sleep, camp and march
to the best advantage, and can teach this val
uable information to their new comrades.
| WHY THE DRAFT HAS BEEN DELATED.
Many friends of the Union arc impatient at
the delay in ordering a draft, but it has been
caused in getting ready. Considerable time
must necessarily be consumed in preparing
forms and instructions for the deputies, print
ing them and sending them out. There was
some lime lost in selecting a Provost Marshal
General. The Thnrlow Weed and Seymour
gang of politicians conspired together to se
cure that important office, and came within
an ace, it is said, of gelling appointed one of
Seward’s ‘‘Conservative” followers, who
helped to defeat Wadsworth and the Republi
can ticket lost foil. But Secretary Stanton
broke up this game and secured the services
of your townsman, CoL Fry, of the regular
army, who is familiar with military details
and belongs to no political clique, especially
not to the Weed clique of plunder mongers.
COL. PRY NEARLY READY.
Col. Fry has got the machinery of the draft
nearly perfected, and the appointment of the
assistants for the districts are nearly all made.
In a few days more the enrollment will com
mence to be followed by the
draft as speedy as possible. Those conscript
ed will beat once mustered into service, uni
formed, rationed and assigned to their regi
ments, after a few days* preliminary instruc
tion. The regulations for the government of
he draft arc already printed.
ILLINOIS’ QUOTA.
The quota of conscripts to be called from
Illinois will he small, compared with the East-
States. She is lar ahead of her share.
Her volunteers are all for three-years, while
many oi the soldiers from the East are for
nine months. Each State will bo credited
with the time for which her troops have en.
listed. One three years’man in Illinois will
reckon as much as four nine months’ men
from Pennsylvania. If a draft for 300,000
men be ordered, not to exceed six or seven
thousand will be required of •Illinois—per
haps not so many—while Pennsylvania and
New York will each have to raise from forty
to fifty thousand.
CONSTRUCTION OP THE 13tH SECTION.
Put the most difficult thing to determine in
relation to the whole matter, is the proper
construction of the 13th section of the Con
scription Act. If it be construed to mean
that the Government must receive S3OO In
commutation of service from a conscript,
then the purpose and Intention of the law is
in a great degree nullified and defeated. Sup
pose every conscript offers S3OO, the Govern
ment will not get a man, if that construction
prevails.
If the 13th section be construed as obliga
tory on the Government to receive money for
personal service, the act, It is felt, will bo a
failure and the Government will be left with
out the ability to procure men to fill up the
ranks of the wasted regiments. The few men
that may be got that arc unable to raise S3OO
will consist of those having the least interest
in the perpetuity of the Union, and, conse
quently, will make the worst soldiers.
OPINION OF THE SECRETARY OP WAR.’
The Secretary of War bolds that the act
leaves it as optional with him to receive mon
ey commutation as It is for the conscript to
offer it. The loth section says that “any per
son drafted may pay $300,” “to such person
as the Secretary may authorize to receive it,”
“/or the procuration of mch substitute."
It is obviously the intention of the section
some person who offers himself as a substi
tute. The law makes no other provision for
the use of the money. The Secretary of War
is not a Federal Treasurer. He gives no
bonds—he is not a financial officer. The As
sistant Provost Marshals arc not Federal
Treasurers, under bond. They have no use
for the commutation money, unless It be to
pay it over directly to persons who have vol
unteered as substitutes. What the whole act
calls for is men, not revenue. It Is not a bill
to raise money to support the Government,
but to procure able-bodied men to fight pub
lic enemies. Any other construction nullifies
the law. The 13th section should, therefore,
be construed In harmony with the purpose
and object of the act, and not technically m a
woy to render it abortive, to take away the
power of National self-defense, which is sim
ply snicide.
The Secretary of War holds that he is not
bound to receive any conscript’s money un
less there Is a “substitute” standing ready to
take the money and serve it\his place. This
is the common sense view of the act. An
other question is raised in this connection:
Is it constitutional, after drafting a body of
men to let off three-fourths of them upon the
payment of a few dollars, and to force the re
maining fourth into the camp and battle field?
It is certainly not in accordance with the
principles of Republican Government.
TWO METHODS.
There are two methods proposed that will
bato the act from proving abortive. The first
is for the Secretary of War to appoint no
agents to receive the 1300, os it is clearly
optional with him. The act says he “may
appoint a person” to receive the money.
Suppose he concludes he won’t, what then?
Why the conscript mnst find hi* own substi
tute, or go himself. This Is the short, blunt,
Jacksonian mode of solving the difficulty, and
the course that ought to he pursued.
The other way is one which complies with
the letter of the law, and yet procures the full
number of men called for by the draft. It Is
as follows: Ist. Ordera draft for a given nnm
ofmen; 2nd. Call for an equal number of
volunteers to act as substitutes; Sd. Offer
each a bounty of S4OO, (SIOO paid by tho Gov
ernment aa provided In section 17, and S3OO
by the conscript;) 4th. Lot each conscript
who wishes to commute deposit his money in
bank, and enter his name in a memorandum
or pass-book, in the office of the enrollingoffl
cer, for the inspection of volunteers who have
tendered their services as “substitutes;”
sth. Let each volunteer designate from the
list for whom ho will serve, receive the con
script’s money, and take his musket; Gth. Let
each conscript and substitute name his first,
second, third and fourth choice of regiments
in which he desires to serve. If more men apply
for admission into a resident th.in can be re
ceired, draw lots for the choice of choice. Bet
each man to be restricted to regiments of his
own State. By this course each recruit will
be placed among his own friends and neigh
bora; 7th. Let the volunteering commence
before the draft is made, as it will cause many
to volunteer to serve as substitutes in order
to escape being drafted, as in that case they
would only get the SIOO paid by the Govern
ment, and but $25 of that cash down; Bth. He
who is conscripted for whom none offers to
serve as his substitute, must go himself, or
find his own substitute.
There would doubtless be tens of thousands
who would volunteer as substitutes for the
sake of the largo bounty and to es
cape being drafted. The Republican vol
unteers would select Republican conscripts
for whom to serve, and Democratic volun
teers would select Democratic conscripts, but
who would offer to serve as substitutes for
»be conscripted Copperhead? This class of
interesting people who have avoided doing
military service, would bo obliged to *‘step to
the music of the Union” for the first time
since the rebellion broke out. It would be a
sin and a shame to let such persons escape
upon payment of a few paltry dollars. Last
summer when the President called for 600,030
men, the Republicans raised three-fourths of
the whole number, and the Copperheads not
a man, except when a draft was made for
nine months men. And the consequence
was that the latter who stayed at home to
vote and open a fire-ln-thorcar, carried the
elections in DUnols, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsyl
vania, New York and New Jersey, and called
the result a condemnation of the war, and a
popular demand for peace on any terms the
rebels mrewiliingto grant.
HOW WILL THB PBBSIDBXT DEOIDfe?
The final construction of the 13th section
of the conscription moat come from the Pres
ident, and it is not known how ho will decide
It. but it U believed that he TrtU take the
ground that the law calls for men, not money,
that it is amilitaryandnotarevcnue measure,
and that a man to carry a musket must be
produced for crcry name that is drawn from
the bos. Chicago.
TUIt of Gen. Hooker— Our Loss—The
Rebel Doss The Deserter*— Dis
charging Soldier* Sending Seces
sionist* South* "
[From Our Own Correspondent.]
WAsmNOTON.May 16,1803.
•VISIT OP OBK. HOOKER.
Gen. Hooker came up here on Thursday
evening and remained until Friday evening,
when he returned to bis headquarters. While
hefehe was closeted with Lincoln, Halleck,
and Stanton, undoubtedly laying before them
his plans for future operations. Senators
Wade and Chandler arrived here shortly after
Hooker did. They cxjffesscd themselves
much dissatisfied with the result of the short
campaign. At eleven o’clock last night they
went down to sec the army, and
by personal Inspection and f cenver
sation with the . officers and men
ascertain exactly how matters are In the army.
The opinion is beginning to prevail that no
movement will be made by the army for a
month or more. But others who know
Hooker intimately say that he will let very
liftlc time pass before again pitching into the
rebels.
OUR LOSS.
The latest estimate of his loss in the week’s,
fighting puts it at 10,000 killed and wounded,
and 6,000 prisoners. '
THE REBEL LOSS. *
The rebel loss is just about 12,000 killed and
wounded, and4,ooo prisoners. So that after
all the collision damaged each side very nearly
alike. The loss of Stonewall Jackson how
ever is irreparable to tho rebels. They have
no man who can fill his place. He had be
come the great man of the rebellion—the idol
of the Confederate soldiery. Ho could get
twice os much fighting out of a regiment of
rebels as any other man. The Richmond pa
pers state “ that since the death of Washing
“ton no similar event has so profoundly and
“sorrowfully impressed the people of Vir
ginia as the death of Stonewall Jackson.”
It is further added that “be was himself a
“powerequal to many regiments ©farmed
men.” They arc trying to persuade their
readers that he was shot ny accident by their
own men, but this Is untrue. He was struck
by the well aimed bullets of Federal soldiers:
part of bis staff was killed or wounded, and
those who were bearing him wounded from
the field were killed, and himself almost be
came a prisoner.
60,000 DESERTERS.
It is stated that there Is yet over 00,000 de
serters from the army, who have not heeded
the President's proclamation to return to
thuir duty. They will ail be caught by the
Provost Marshals when the enrollment is
completed. There will then be no escape
for them.
DISCHARGING SOLDIERS.
It Is said on good authority that 150,000
soldiers have been improperly discharged on
surgeons’ certificates. In many repments
where the soldiers have been Copperheads,
they made a practice of discharging every
man who was suit, ono object being to weak
en the regiment as much as possible, in order
to help lutrcby their friend Jett Davis. Other
surgeons discharged hundreds of men who
would have recovered and returned to duty,
but they wonted to get rid of the trouble of
doctoring. It was easier to give a man hi*
discharge and send him home, than to take
cure of him and try to cure him. These
wrongly discharged soldiers will all have to
stand their chauec to be drafted, when the
conscription act is put in force.
SENDING SECESSIONISTS SOUTH.
Steps are bcirg taken to send a large bitch
of becctsiouist South to their bretnren in
Dixie. Tills ought to have been done long
ago. Tbe city is full of the scoundrels. They
are to be found iu every department,
but the worst nest is in the Quartermaster
GeLeral’a Department. Gen. Meigs, who dis
burses untold millions, Is looked upon as a
king among live Copperheads. The favors ol
his great office arc dispensed chiefly to dis
loyaiMs anti enemies of the Administration.
It is the boast in his department that not a
“Black Republican” is employed in ill And
this, too, under the nose of a Republican
Pn sident. When a Copperhead is discharged
fn m any of the departments, be is regarded
as a “ blessed martyr,” and is pretty sure of
being piovldcd with a snug birth in Meigs 1
bureau. But ii some of these “martyrs”
don’t look kharply, they will find themselves
going into Dixie under a flag of tiuco. It is
cheaper to fight them than to support them
in a Federal office at $1,200 or $-*,200 a year.
They arc continually asserting that the Con
stitution is violated by Lincoln and his min
ions, and that the Union no longer exists. It
is therefore proposed to send where
they can obtain their rights and enjoy the
“ Constitution as it Js and the Union as it
was,” to their heart’s content, in tue blessed
and happy land where the despotism of Lin
coln does not exifrt. That is the country
where all good Copperheads ought to go.
ORGANIZING COLO RED REGIMENTS.
There is much dissatisfaction at the‘Blow
orourCfS the Admini.-tration is making in or
ear ning colored regiments. Since the policy
has been resolved upon, people ask why it is
not put through. No party Is opposing it
The Republicans are unanimously for it, and
very few Democrats say a word against it, be
cause they perceive at least that every colored
volunteer saved one white man from being
drafted. One of them expressed himself to
ule thus: “ I am no longer hostile to employ
ing blacks as soldiers. lam satisfied they
will finhr, and I would a d—d sight rather see
a nigger killed by a rebel bullet than u Demo
crat.” Self interest has overcome former'
prejudices against employing this description
of soldiers.
I am told that when Gen. Thomas returns
here, tbe whole business of organizing negro
regiments will be placed in his hands. The
knowledge and experience he obtained down
the Mississippi will enable him to go at the
work systematically. The Secretary of War
believes that Gen. Thomas will be able to put
one hundred black regiments into the field
before the first of January. Alter he returns
home, permission will be given to raise col
ored troops wherever they cm be procured. The
President says he wants all that can be gotten;
that as tbe war is considerably about negroes,
and as they here a deeper interest in the
result of the straggle than any other class,
therefore it is but proper the blacks should be
allowed to help to fight it out.
The black man has a double interest in the
result of the war. salvation of the
Union, and second, the emancipation of his
race. With his sword and bayonet alone can
lie overcome the prejudice o? the dominant
lace. It Is only by shedding hla blood on tho
same battle field with the white soldier that
he can secure the recognition of his manhood.
Ann it is only by helping to save the Union,by
rendering valuable service, by riskingaud los
ing life in battle, by helping to «win victories
and gliating defeats, that the black man can
lay the foundation of bis claim for his free
dom, and extort from the white man’s grati
tude and justice what was denied to the plea
of “universal brotherhood” and abstract right.
It is wrong to both blacks and whites to keep
the former out of the army, because It de
prives the former of his only chance of gain
ing a recognition of his natural and inaliena
ble rights, and wrong to the latter, as It do.-
prlves'them of the willing asslstanceof a pow
erful and useful ally, who can render them in
calculable aid In this dark hour of national
struggle. Chicago,

St. Louis, May 18,1863.
Considerable excitement has been produced
by the announcement of the removal of Gen.
Curtis and the appointment of Gen. Schofield
as his successor. The quid nuncs are puzzled
to understand how the question of rank will
be settled. Gen. Schofield’s nomination as
Major General was laid over by the Senate,
and consequently fell to the ground when that
body adjourned without confirmlnglt. There
are two Major Generals in the service ia this
Department who.outrank Schofield—Generals
Herron and Blunt. The objection to the
change is not urged s# much against General
Schofield, however, as against the removal of
General Curtis, or rather against the unset
tling ot the policy of the Government In this
Department, after a scries of vigorous meas
ures against the rebels have been inaugurated
by command of Gen. Curtis. The rebels are
already felicitating eachothcrovertbechange,
and predicting a general release of all the
rebel sympathizers lately arrested for trans
portation southward. The statement in the
telegraphic column that Attorney General
Bates and Postmaster General Blair have been
mainly instrumental in this change js a confir
mation of previous Impressions, The inter
ference of Montgomciy Blair in Missouri
matters Invariably proceeds from the inspira
tion of Frank P. Blair’s friends. The move
ment may be considered partly a Claybank,
and partly a Conservative job, and its success
has thrown a wet blanket on the cause of
emancipation In this State.
Once more the guerillas manifest trouble
some signs. The firing on the steamer Fanny
Ogden on the.Missouri River above Lexing
ton on Friday is one of the tokens of an early
resumption of bushwhacking in that section.
In fact the whole country outside of the towns
and military posts, from Boonvilie to the Kan
sas line is filled with men who are ready at a
moment’s warning to take to the brush. There
is hardly a doubt of their intentions to rise
and plunder this summer. Everywhere in
Northern Missouri horse thieves are collecting
stock upon a wholesale scale, hitherto unpar
alleled. -The simultaneous disappearance of
hort-es in a half a dozen counties and the ex
perience of stray soldiers who are Invariably
tired upon from the brush, when caught in
the locality, indicates a well settled plan on
the part of guerillas to create mischief. The
efforts of the enrolled militia, indeed, will
scarcely be sufficient to restrain an outbreak,
yet It is a painful fact to record that Merrill s
Horse, one of our most elfieient cavalry regt
merits, baa been ordered to Pilot Knob. When
they leave North Missouri, the guerillas will
have a tolerably fair swing and what is worse,
they know it themselves betterthon any body
can tell them. , .
Affairs along the Southern border have not
agpunied anv new phase during the last week.
Immediately after the withdrawal of Generals
Van Dover and McNeil from the ineffectual
pursuits of Marmadukc, the rebels rc-occn
pied the territory between Bloomfield and
Chalk Bluff, wilh parties collecting forage
and supplies. Outof this a report originated
that Maimadnke had retaken Bloomfield and
was again menacing Cape Girardeau. There
is nothing to be apprehended from this direc
tion. Small foraging parties have been sent
out by the rebels from the vicinity of Fayette
ville, north of the Missouri line, but they
have avoided our cavalry scouts from Cass
ville and Springfield. The rebels hold the
Ozark Mountain region, and much good may
it do them. Were supplies plentiful it would
afford an excellent base for cavalry expedi
tions, bnt as it is bare of supplies it is unim
portant. The Southern border of theStatcis
closely watched, and no fear is felt that the
rebels liom Arkansas will be able to invade
the State without being discovered.
The arrest of several prominent secession
ists, and the bauiehmeu*. of a few others, has
caused more than usual remanc In this city.
This departuie of the Belle Memphis on
Thursday was witnessed by thousands on the
levee, ihough the scene on board was rather
lame end commonplace. The depressed
spirits of the inen who expect to be con
scripted into the Southern army, were In visi
ble contrast to the joyous expressions of the
women. How is it that rebel females do ever
forcet the refinements and proprieties of life,
af-Tr turning traitors to their country? Some
of those on tho Belle Memphis have moved
in relined andfashionablesoeiety in St. Louis,
.•md have ever been regarded a> perfect ladies,
Yel prior to their departure they used lan
guage and bundled epithets which would dis
grace the lips of a fishmonger. The removal
of (ion. Curtis has suspended all present pro
ceedings in the banishment of the secession-
now under arrest. The many severe re
bukes received by Union men pleading the
release of rebels, has put a slop to thatsort of
thing.
One of the sensations of the week, is the
attack of the JitpubUcan on Hon. Charles D.
Drake, and the response and rejoinder. The
course of the Republican during tho Camp
Jackson cri-is was criticised by Mr. Drake in
his Camp Jackson oration, which drew out a
stinging editorial from the Jiepublican, de
nouncing Drake aa an ingrate and as
incomisicnt. To this Mr. Drake re
sponded in the Democrat , by reviewing
the opinions of Mr. Baseball, the leading edi
tor of the Rejmllican, and charging him with
retaining the sentiments of, a traitor to this
day. The Republican's rejoinder accused Mr.
Drake of asking favors of the Republican after
the objectionable acts referred to in his re
sponse. The controversy has been veryspicy
on both sides, but the advantage rests with
Mr Drake, as the Republican has In no way
refuted his charges, but simply preferred
counter charges of insincerity’, Jcc.
The work of obtaining recruits for the ne
gro regiments, now raising In Massachusetts,
has progressed with great success in this city.
A large and enthusiastic meeting of colored
citizens was held on Thursday night, in one
of their churches, where patriotic speeches
were made and enrollment lists opened. On
this occasion, a colored man, named Turner,
electrified his few white hearers by a speech as
remarkable for its eloquence and beauty as for
its enchanting effects on the audience, who
were worked upto the highest pitch of excite
ment by the burning words of the negro ora
tor. Turner cleans rooms for a living, and is
described as one of the most eloquent speak
ers ever listened to. The .enlistments have
already far exceeded in number the most san
guine expectations.
For several days tho arrival of the steamer
Daniel G. Taylor with the prisoners from
Grand Gull and Fort Gibson lias been watch
with eager interest, on acoount of tho report
that most of the rebel prisoners are former
residents of this city, who were taken prison
ers at Camp Jackson and afterward exchang
ed with Gen. Frost for Coh Mulligan’s men,
taken at Lexington. The steamer came in
sight last evening before dark, and imme
diately the levee was crowded, bnt by order
of Gen. Curtis the prisoners wore carried to
Alton. Had they landed here a demonstra
tion oi the rebels would have been witnessed
by our soldiers.
The city is just now crowded with notables.
On Saturday Gov. Tates of Illinois, Gen. Mc-
Dowell, Gen. St. George Cook, Gen. Don
Carlos Buell, Gen. Herron, Gen. Tan Dover,
Senator Lane and others were here, and yes
terday Gov. Salomon, of Wisconsin, and
several military notables arrived. *lt is no
di?”?r2gcpent- iq gthcre to say that Jim Lane,
of Kansas, attracted as much fltteptipn as any
of .them, and his departure is as sincerely re
gretted.
Stories of Price’s movements are as plenti
ful and contradictory just now as musqnitos
in the summer time. The latest story we
have from a deserter is that Price intends to
dean out tho Yankees from Helena, Arkansas,
and then carry the war into Missouri. In the
same way, Marmadukc deserters told us that
bis plan in case Cape Girardeau was taken,
was to make a raid into Illinois and try to
capture Cairo.
The city enrolled Missouri Militia called in
active service for thirty days at the time of
the advance of Marmadukc,havebeonreleaaed
from duly until further orders. This is aStato
affair entirely. Many of our citizens, rather
than serve under the orders of such
pro-slavery officials as Governor Gam
ble hare cheerfully paid their thirty
dollars commutation tax for exemption for
service for the present year. It will be tight
on these persons it they are drafted into the
United Slates service.
There Is a rumor current that Gov, Gamble
has an understanding with the War Depart
ment and President, that if the enrolled mili
tia arc drilled, armed and equipped so as to
be available foractiveservice in case ofgacrilla
outbreaks, that there shall be no conscription
in this State. Lt. Col. Alexander, of the regu
lar army, has, however, received the appoint
ment of Assistant Provost Marshal for the St.
Louis district, which looks as if the operation
of the draft law would be uniform here and
elsewhere.
Gen. McNeil having been wounded by an
accidental discharge of a pistol at Cape Girar
deau on Friday, is expected to arrive here
this evening for a short rest from active doty.

[Special Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.]
THE LEGISLATURE,
The Legislature is about closing its labors.
It bos been thoroughly loyal, the Copperheads
not haying even a respectable minority. Laws
have been passed prohibiting traitors and se
cessionists from prosecuting or defending
suits in our State Courts, without first taking
an oath of allegiance to the Federal Govern
ment, as strong as language can make it, also
requiring secesh lawyers to take the oath or
quit practice. The proposed amendments to
the Constitution, prohibiting the immigration
of negroes and mnlattoes to the State, were
indefinitely postponed. An act was passed al
lowing negroes to testify in civil and crimi
nal cases. This was a great triumph of the
friends of humanity, and shows that Californ
ia is “marching on.” An appropriation was
made of six hundred thousand dollars, as ad
ditional pay to the California Volunteers, to
be distributed at the rale of five dollars a
month from the time of enlistment, in addi
tion to the payfallowed by the United States.
A bill is also pendingwhich will doubtless be
come a law, allowing the State to donate two
thousand dollars a mile to the Central Pacific
Railroad Company, to aid in the construction
of their road this side of the Sierras. In addi
tion to thisthe Legislature haspassedastroqg
series ot resolutions, pledglngthe State to the
Government by every means, in the most vig
orous prosecution of the war. The Emanci
pation Proclamation was endorsed almost
uuanimouriy, so you see California is “true
blue.” She willnot retrograde.
THE APPROACHING ELECTION.
The approaching State election will be the
most important one ever held in the Slate.
Every office, from Governor to Constable,
is to be filled, including Judges 'ot
the Supreme Court. The complete
success of the Union ticket is certain. The
Copperheads are in a bad way here: .they are
sadly in the minority and are growing dally
beautifully less.
GUTTING A SECESH ORGAN.
The office of their principal organ, the Rf
publican, (what a misnomer), published m tm»
city, was greeted last night, and the type
tributed” in thestreets. Soldiers from Camp
Union arc charged with the outrage. it la
as vile a paper as the Chicago, Times' and Is
edited by Beriah Brown, ofWisconsin. Tnt
injury inflicted was not sufficient to stop the
issue of the treasonable sheet.
SENATOR CONNES3.
Some of the Eastern papers have set down
our new Senator, Hon. Johu Conness as a
Democrat ot tho kind who do not accord with
the Administration. This is a gross mistake;
he Is one of the staunchest Union Abolition
ists In the country. At a great Union meet
ing held in this city on the 18th instant, he
made his first public speech since his election,
in which he proclaimed himself the friend of
ibe Administration in the most emphatic man
ner, solemnly asserted the impossibility of
his ever occupying the position ofMcDougall
and Nesmith on National questions, and de
clared his readiness to arm the slaves if neces
sary, to put down the rebellion. Enclosed
you will find his speech.
Hon. Stephen J. Field, Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court of California, this day receiv
ed his commission as Jon Associate Justice of
the Supreme Court of the Uni ed States.
This appointment has been one of the best
made under the present Administration. Cal
ifornia will regret to lose Judge Field fr »m
her bunch which he has elevated to a position
equal with that ol’aay State, but is proud to
contribute such a splendid jurist to grape the
Supreme Federal tribunal. Judge Field not
only possesses a legal mind of the most re
markable clearness, hut is jn-ofonudly versed
in the intricate and complex questions, aris
ing out of the Mexican land grants in this
State, which involve millions ofproper y, the
title to a great portion of which is dependent
upon the decisions of the Supreme Court, his
services in these cases will be invaluable to
Li.-brother Judges. His views upon national
questions arc eminently sound. Aa am m his
sounding for purity, uprightness and firmness
Is the very highest. With Couness aud Field
from the Pacific coast, California will make
largo amends for thu pro slavery rascals she
has in times past inflicted on the country.
THE GA2VJJL COXYE^TIOX.
Letter from Hie Hon. William. P, Shef
field of Bliodo lalaxid.
Newport, R.T.,May~,1563.
Gentlemen : By this day’s mail I am in re
ceipt of your favor of the 24th ult., inviting
me to be present at your meeting to be held
in Chicago, on the 2d proximo, to furthertbe
enlargement of the canals between the volley
of the Mississippi and the Atlantic coast.
If by going to Chicago, I could render any
practical aid to the project you have In view,
I should cheerfully make the journey, for I
believe the proposed improvement to be an
undertaking of very great national and com
mercial importance. Its completion would
create a new bond of Union between the East
aud the West —cheapen tbe cost of transport
ing food, a benefit which would be shared
with tho producer at the West and the con
sumer at the East —would stimulate the agri
cultural enterprise of the West, and induce
the culture of other products, which would
find a ready market in the East. It is be
lieved that indigo, sumac, madder, and other
articles, now brought from foreign countries,
might be successfully cultivated in parts of
the valley of the Mississippi, which this chan
■el of trade would put In cheap communica
tion with the markets of the East.
1 am a believer in the Constitution of tho
United States; but I have but little sympathy
iu opinion with those men who find undertbe
power to regulate commerce with foreign na
tions, the authority to erect and maintain
light-houses, and to send expeditions to the
Dead Sea, in search of ancient Sodom, and
who cannot find In the power to regulate
trade between tbe States, the autbonty to
construct a road, or widen a canal, over or
through which the commerce of a great sec
tion of tho country will necessarily be
carried.
The more I reflect on this improvement, the
more I am satisfied of Its importance, not on
ly to the West, but to tho East, nnd I san
guinely look forward to no very distant pe
riod of time, when vessels loaded with the
products of the fcr West, taken ou board up
on the banks of the Mississippi, and ot its
tributaries, and passing through this great
artery of internal communication, will, with
out “ breaking bulk,” lay down their cargoes
in Eastern clues.
We of New England are for developing the
resources of the West, for this adds to our
national prosperity; but not only for this—
for our kindred, and those who now our
neighbors, are of and tbongb we are now
in the full tide of our strength, if In after
limss adversity should come upon us, wo
should look to you of the West for support,
relying upon your good offices, as a devoted
parent would, in times of trial, look for the
rid of a worthy son. Ton are bound t9 US,
by ties stronger tban thote written on parch
men—our blood flows in Jour veins, and the
ashes of your ancestors moulder in our soil.
Xam bnt a private citizen. I could do you
no good by attending your meeting. Profes
sional employment presses upon my lime. I.
therefore, feel constrained to decline the kina
invitation with which you have honored me.
With great respect, 1 am your ob’t serv’t,
Wm. P. SItEFTfELD.

SSAiHEGARD CALLED TO
BICHHOAD.
Reported Movements of tbe Rebels.
The well-informed Washington correspond
ent of the Philadelphia Rbrth American writes:
There is a vague rumor in circulation that,
after the late battles and the death of Jack
son, General Beauregard was telegraphed to
proceed to Richmond with oil tbe force that
could be spared from his department, and
that he was daily expected to join the army,
which now appears to be in an important po
sition half way between Richmond aud Fred
ericksburg. At Gordonsville there Is also re
ported to be a “ strong force,” but it Is pre
sumed to be merely snffie’ent to garrison the
place, and give prompt no ice to the main
body of tho army or any movement ot our
torces in that direction.
If tbe reported ordering of Beauregard to
Virginia is correct, it would show that the
rebels did not anticipate any renewal of the
assault upon the defences of Charleston for
some time to come, but In ibis they may be
mistaken. It Is doubtful in my own mind,
however, whether the Charleston forces have
been ordered to join Lee, though there have
been certain developments of late which
would seem to give color to such a belief.
The rebels have such a way of handling
their forces, that it a most vigilant
eye to penetrate their movements.
Jl Cowardly Acit by tlxe Bcbcls.
[Grand Golf Cor. Cincinnati Commercial.]
At the battle of Thompson’s Hills, as at
nearly every other cattle since the commenc
ment of the war, the rebels performed some
dastardly acts which should consign them to
eternal obloqny in the eyes of the civilized
world. I can only mention two of them, to
one of which I was an eye-witness. At 11
o’clock, when they had justbeen driven back
by a heavy fire on fteir center, a number of
rebels approached bearing a flag of truce.
They approached a brigade ot our men who
were drawn up in line of battle. When with
in about two hundred yards of our line a reg
iment of rebels rushed iu ahead of the flag of
truce parly, fired a volley of musketry, and
fell back under cover ot the woods so rapidly
that before our men had recovered from the
surprise occasioned by such a gross outrage
they were beyond our range. During the
afternoon some of our men, while picking
up a number of dead and wounded rebels,
altera severe contest on the right, were fired
upon, and two of them killed. These are
deeds of Southern valor, without the record
of which the history of the rebellion will not
be complete.
A Kentucky Scare.—lt was currently re
reported in the city last night that Buckner
had crossed the Cnmberland H and was enter
ing the . State with a force of ten thousand.
We are not iu the habit of taking any cogni
zance of the floating rumors that prevail inonr
city almost every evening,but we were Inclined
to learn the particulars regarding this start
ling announcement, from the fact that there
woa room for doubt as to its being a canard.
Upon diligent inquiry, however, w© learned
that the military aathoritios had received no
such intelligence, and we therefore felt satis
fied that there was no truth m the report,—
