The news from Vicksburg is highly en
couraging. The rebel situation is getting
desperate, and we shall shortly hear of
their surrender, unless Bogie interposition
Of Providence and Johnston snatches the
present bright promise from Grant’s oper
ations. Our dispatches to Monday last are
full, and of the highest interest
There is not a •word of truth in the idle
talcs that have been circulated relative to
Gen. McClcmand’s disobedience of orders
and his quarrel with Gen. Grant "We
have preferred to withhold any reference
to the matter until from the reiy first
authority wc could give it the most un
qualified and plump refutation, as wholly
and infamously false.

The situation of Missouri is horrible.
Our dispatch lifts a small corner of the
curtain. Murders, assassinations, robbe
ries and violence are rife in her communi
ties. Arc there no judges in that unhap
py State ? In the name of Heaven has she
no Senatorial or Congressional expounders
of the Constitution? Are there no law
libraries in hllssouri ? Why will not some
one urge upon these distressed districts
their rights to trials by jury, and in
dictments by Grand July, Is it
possible these can anywhere fail? Is any
man so insane as to ask anything better
than the Law and the Constitution? Or
rather will not the people see, in the red
light cast by burning homes in Missouri,
that the Law and the Constitution are
themselves to be defended, and not alone
a defence —that the mailed hand and the

The noblest prerogative of civilization
as law. Obedience to law Is tbe condition
upon wbicb life, liberty, property and tbe
pursuit of happiness depends, and by which
they arc assured. In countries where old
experience has ripened law into meas
urable perfection, where hard necessity
Sind the exigencies of peril and trial have
taught what ought to be blazoned on stat
ute books; where foreign wars, home re
bellions, outside attack and inride treason
have helped not only to teach, hut origin
ate and perfect the necessaiy ordinances
;*nd statutes to meet eveiy occasion of
need, no trouble can properly arise. But
on countries where-no such experience has
obtained, and where no such laws exist—
Vhen the exigency comes, and the life of
the nation is at stake, grave and serious
questions suggest themselves as to the du
ty of the nation, and especially of those
upon whom the people have devolved the
duty, not only of executing the laws, but
of defending the life and honor of the na
tion. Glancing at our past history, signal
instances present themselves as guiding
precedents, to be avoided or followed, as
the good sense of the people, or of those
in authority, may dictate. Looking at the
State of thcconntiy in the time of our great
revolution, and carefully inquiring to what
extent law aided in that grand and holy
tipririr*, we are not embarrassed to find
a lull and satisfactory answer, "When An
drew Jackson found himself at one rime
in Florida, at another in New Orleans, and
was confronted by the ministers of the
Jaw, urging what was asserted to he law,
insisting upon enforcing ordinances
even though the life of the nation paid the
forfeit; lastoiy not yet musty, nor yet so
old or foreign as to base its value as a
teacher, sets forth with no doubtful dis
tinctness its pregnant lesson. “When law
proved powerless in California, to protect
life and property, the people became a law
unto themselves, and their experience, and
the result of their efforts speak tnunpet
iongued, and arc full of 'warning, counsel,
pnd advice.
When our Southern cousins began to
entertain themselves, first by spreading
through the columns of their leading
papers the poison of their treason, when
their conventions began to gather, and
one after another not only proclaimed the
right of secession, but took the initiatory
elepts to practice and assume it; and
when at the last they commenced to ga
ther their forces about poor bdeagured
Sumter, cast up banks, dig ditches, run
lines of circumvallation, load and point
their columblads, the venerable gentleman
that eat in the seat of Government failed
to find any law authorizing him to take
the necessary measures for prevention,
smd to-day, because of that baiting impo
lency, one-third of the States are in open
xcbdlijn, hecatombs of human lives, the
best and bravest of the land, have been
sacrificed, the land is filled with mourn-
Jug and sadness, a thousand millions of
debt weighs its leaden paralysis on the
land, and men’s hearts fall them for fear.
Gen. Burnside is called to take command
of the army of Kentucky, and is expected
to relieve that State of guerilla robbers and
banded rebels, and also to advance on
Eastern Tennessee, and if posable, extend
the same aid there. Arrived at Cincinnati,
be finds his hands tied and his feet chain
ed. North of the Ohio the virus of the
rebellion^ in some way, has been spread far
smd wide, and the time and effort he hoped
lob&vc given to subduing the enemy in
their proper field, is compelled to be ex
hausted amongst a people who ought to be
bis best assistance, instead of his worst em
barrassment. Be finds a large section of
country where deserters from the army are
harbored and protected—where Union men
are in danger of their lives— where murders
are perpetrated weekly by foes of the Gov
ernment, and*where large companies are
gathering at county seats, or leas promi
nent places, to drill and practice,
preparatory to defeating the Conscription
act, and to do other and more irrepa
rable injuiy to the cause of the
Union. On investigation, it turns out
that all tins condition of things is plainly
traceable to the treasonable utterances of a
vile and incendiary sheet, whose daily out
givings arc more effective for evil than all
the other malien influences in all the land
together, and thereupon heissnes his order
for its suppression. TThat is the result?
The clamor comes np from every disloyal
throat and every traitor tongue—law, law,
law, where’s the law? TVc suggest this to
the grave and serious consideration of the
Government and of the people, and beg to
ask whether we, too, are to wait until the
enemy have helcaugnered ns as they did
Sumter, and we, too, are to wake np,
when all too late, to find that under; the
forms of law and behind its shield and
buckler, our national life has been perilled
beyond ail posable hope ol salvation.
“Do unto others as you would they
should do unto you/* is a golden, hut not
a general rule. The executors of the law
deal with the criminal without the slight
est regard to the question of the reverse of
positions. The sheriff drops the noose
over the neck of the fdon, and stays not
to consider whether he would be pleased
by such attention, were himself the felon
and the other the officer of justice.
The men, however, who oppose the
summary treatment of disloyal press
es and pleaders by the military
power, lay great stress upon this
very point. True, these wretches who
would hamper the Government, hinder
the war, destroy the nation, arc wretches;
hut, pause, do not arrest them, nor sup
press them, lest peradventurc they may at
sometime come into power and fall at
work to suppress you. Exactly, hut sup
pose them once come into power, which
may heaven forfend, is there any doubt
what course these men would pursue, and
that withoutcaiiing foryour example ?
Slavery and its minions have always set
their own precedents, and been unto
themselves a law. The South was sup
pressed out of the Union. Border Ruffian
ism attempted to suppress Kansas. Slavery
began the work of suppression against
liberty years ago. The whole foundation
of the institution is hedged in by fraud,
arbitrary force and violence. "While they
bellow lustily the sacred names of Law,
liberty, Constitution, they are carrying on
a nefarious work which will leave us
neither. They hold up the Law
and the Constitution before them
as a shield, and by this simplest
and most transparent of war artifices, seek
to cany parallel after parallel. , There is a
danger in it that the Government must sec,
or it is lost It must cease to treat traitors
as it would desire to he treated by
traitors were these to gain the su
premacy. liberty has nothing but ruin
to expect of Slavery. The frigate must
sink the pirate, or the buccaneer will sink
the frigate. The Constitution must be de
fended by the mailed hand, or the Consti
tution Itself will pass away. It must be
made dangerous to print or plead disloy
alty in the North, or the time will come
when the danger will loom on the other
side, and Freedom he slain in our streets.

The letter of Henry Famum, Esq., re
signing the Preridency of the Bock Island
Railroad, with the reply of the Directors
will he found in our local columns. In
years gone hy, Mr, Farmings name has of
ten appeared in these columns. He was
first known to our readers as contractor
for building the Michigan Southern Hail
road, and the energy with which he push
ed forward the work to completion was
the wonder and admiration of all our peo
ple. As soon as that great thoroughfare was
finished he projected and commenced
tbe Hock Island Railroad, building one
hundred and eighty-one miles in eighteen
months less time than was called for by
the contract He had a right to run the
road on his own account for that time; bat
at great pecuniary sacrifice to himself he
delivered it up to the company. He and
his partner, Mr. Sheffield, of New Haven,
furnished the money to build the entire
line. Let Mm who can, estimate all the
commercial, social and moral advantages
such a road as the Hock Iriand confers up
on the present, and will confer upon the
people who for all time shall dwell within
its influence, and tell how many and how
rich are the blessings Henry Famum has
conferred npon the 'West
But this is not &1L He is one of the few
men, and we believe the chief among
them, who built the Rock Iriand Bridge,
the first to span the M Father of Waters.”
To keep it has proved a far more difficult
task thnn to build it. From the hour it
was commenced, nearly ten years ago, till
within the past few months, every means
that money could command and selfishness
and malice invent, has been persistently
used to destroy it; and more enduring
than the massive piers on which it stands
is the decision in the highest Court in the
Union, that railways have a right to bridge
eveiy river upon the Continent . That
record will stand as long as histoiy shall
last—a living monument of the patient en
ergy, the foresight, and the unyielding
endurance ot Henry Famum.
We might speak of his connection with
the Mississippi and Missouri railroad, with
one of our leading hanking institutions,
and with the patriotic and benevolent
movements of the city, hut these things
are known to all our citizens. Duty to an
invalid member of his family requires a
tour to Europe, and a more frank, cour
teous, intelligent and patriotic gentle
man could not be found to represent there
the interests of the loyal liberty-loving
States. The best wishes of thousands of
his fellow-citizens will attend him.
The editors of the Jett Daws organ
sent to the Copperhead New York World
long dispatches, written in sensation style,
about Gen. Burnside’s order of suppres
sion. In describing the private meeting
in the Court House, which signed and tel
egraphed the hack-down Ogden resolu
tions, the dispatch says:
44 This meeting tnu got up, it is by
those tcho are interested in the Trirdt»e jieiespa-
P*-r , and who feared the destruction of that news
paper by popular violence to night .”
This is a point blank fabrication. No
living human being that owns a dime’s
Interest in the Trtbcxe had anything to
do with the meeting, or knew that such a
dispatch was prepared, until after it was
sent Nor do we believe that any person
who agned the dispatch, “feared the de
struction of the Tjubuke, by popular
(meaning Copperhead) violence.” They
were actuated by other reasons. The pro
prietors and friends of the Thibc2«e felt
perfectly confident of their entire ability
to repel any number of Copperheads that
might attempt its destruction. They would
have taught the villains a lesson which the
survivors would not have forgotten till the
day of their own deaths.

There Is much apathy in the Legislature,
and a disposition to adjourn as soon as possi

city of Chicago concurrent jurisdiction in the
city limits, except in cases of murder :md

postage, but Mr. Ward offered a resolution
that the Auditor and Secretary of State re

their respective offices. This passed, and the
Senate adjourned to Monday morning. In

The House refused to concurin the Senate’s
amendment to the bill appropriating money
to the relief of soldiers, principally on the
ground that the Governor’s name was In

The rebel army is believed to be moving
from Fredericksburg in the direction of Gor
donsvillc. A balloon rccocnolsancc first re
vealed the fact that the rebel army has gone
up the Shenandoah Valley, but it is more
generally believed to have gone to Gordons
ville. It Is supposed this is the secret of the
flood of stories about rebel aggressive move

The dispatch steamer General Lyon arrived

ed unchanged; the bombardment is kept up
at brisk intervals. It is rumored in tho fleet
that General Jo. Johnston has either been re
inforced or has troops near Jackson ready for
that purpose. Johnston is near Black River
Bridge. The fleet is not accomplishing any
thing in particular. We suppose that the
GeucralLyon brought up official dipatches to
Captain Pennock, wick will go forward to
Secretary Welles to-night. They can be of
no particular importance. Tho rumor is
brought up by the Gen. Lyon that Gen. Banks

is no doubt as to the fighting, bat tbc capture
is rather apocryphal and wants confirmation.

This trade now amounts to a million and a

one hundred thousand, and that only for the

Gen. Breckinridge's division had been broken

Cairo, June s.—The dispatch boat Gen.
Lyon, from Vicksburg’ on Monday night, has
arrived. All day Monday firing was kept up,
and Sherman’s troopS on the right wing could
be seen in motion. It is not improbable that
an important action took place,.
When the Lyon left, at midnight, a con
flagration was going on in the city. Some
supposed our shells had set buildings on fire,
while others conjectured that the rebels were
destroying army supplies and equipments,
prcjwratory to surrender. There is no doubt
about the fire.

the 20th regiment of Illinois volunteers, (late

this morning, from Vicksburg direct, having
left the mouth of Chickasaw Bayou, Yazoo
River, on the 2Sth ult.
From them wo learn that the 20th occupies
a position in the centre of Grant's line, which
now entirely commands the city on the land
side. Gen. John £. Smith’s (late of the Illi
nois Lead Mine Regiment—the 45th) brigade,
to which the enemy is attached, having passed
two of the enemy’s outer works, now occu
pies a position only about two miles from the
city proper, and two hundred yards from the
enemy's outer works. Sherman’s corps occu
pies the extreme right, on the Mississippi
River, part of his troops lying not far from
. the famous water battery. Ransom's brigade
is on the left of Sherman's corps, nearer the
centre of the Hue. -
Onr informants represent that onr forces are
in the best of spirits and hopeful of the best
results. They are so near the enemy that
conversation can be readily carried on bet ween
the opposing forces. Those of the rebels

their capability to keep ns out of the city;
but deserters tell a different story, stating
that they arc not only getting short of rations,

General Order No. 90.— The General com
roandiDg directs that Gen. N. C. McLean, Pro
vost Marshal-General, at once institute an in
vestigation into the cases of all citizen
prisoners now confined in this Depart
ment, and in all such cases as do not
clearly show premeditated disloyaUy on
the part of the accused, or when a
desire is manifested to atone for past
faults by future good conduct, the prisoners
will be released on taking the oath of alle
giance, and giving bonds Tor a strict observ
ance thereof. The General commanding is
convinced that a large majority ot the men
arrested have been misled by dishonest and
designing politicians, and he prefers to strike
at the sourcesof the evil, and allow those who
have been led astray to return to their loyalty
and allegiance, if they they have seen the’folly
and sin of opposing the Government.
The United States, in striving to put down
a rebellion unparalleled in history, requires
thateverymanathome or in the field shall
each in ms sphere be enlisted in the cause.
The necessity demands a sacrifice from aIL
In responding to this call, the devotion of the
' citizen soldier stands foremost, and his sacri
fice is the greatest. He gives up all that is dear
to the citizen—his home, his freedom of
speech and action, the prospect of gain, and
often gives his life. He exacts no conditions,
but surrenders himself wholly to Ms country,
as represented by the constituted authorities
placed over him.
But while he thus yields up his civil rights
ao entirely to his country, be is none the less
a citizen; he waives them temporarily to
give greater efficiency to his efforts, and
looks forward to the time when, thcauthority
of the Government restored, he shall again
exercise the rights he has patriotically laid
down. t
"While the duties of a citizen arc of apeace
fiti and less exacting character, he is none the
less a soldier, and it becomes him to appre
ciate the grandeur and cutirencss of the de
votion of his brethren in the field, and to re
member that he, too, has sacrifices to make;
but the country’s demand upon him is com
paratively bat small. The country requires
from him no physical sacrifice, no personal
hardships, it merely asks that he shall imi
tate the loynl example of the soldiers In the
field, so fur as to abate somewhat of that
freedom of speech which they give up
eo entirely. Tbe citizen would be un
just to the soldier, as well as un
faithful to bis country, if, while en
joying the comforts of home, he were unwil
ling to give up a portion of a privilege which
ihc soldier resigns altogether. That freedom of
dheussion and criticism which is proper ia
the politician and journalist iti time of peace,
becomes rank treason when it tends to weak
en the confidence of the soldier in his officers
and his Government. When this Insidious
treason, striking at the very root of that mili
tary power, which is for the time being the
country’s protecriou, makes its appearance, it
is the bonnden duty of tbe Commanding Gen
eral to expel it from bis lines, with a heavier
band than lie would drive from his camp the
vlilaiu who would scatter a material poison,
that would enervate and decimate his soldiers.
Tbe General commanding desires to again
call the attention of the officers, Provost Mar
shals and others in authority, to the necessity
of great care in tbe making of arrests, which
should iu all instances be founded on full affi
davits sustaining distinct charges except when
the exigencies of tbe case demand instant
action. Carelessness in Ibis respect Is only
less censurable than negligence in the detec
tion and punishment of crime.
"With the exercise of scrupulous care and
sound discretion, on the part of officers, and
a candid consideration on tbe part of all citi
zens of the relations of the pcopleand the array
to each other, ns above set forth, the General
commanding is full of hope that mutual co
operatiou in putting down the rebellion, will
become more hearty and effective, the necessi
ty for arrests will be diminished, and the ten
dency to factious opposition to the Govern
ment, and hurtful criticism of its measures,
be removed.

Colonel Kilpatrlclc** Exploit* In Vir
The cavalry raid commenced by General
Slonemau, just prior to the late battle of
Fredericksburg, has terminated—the most
brilliant last act in the drama being the march
of Col. Kilpatrick and 900 men of the 2d New
York cavalry, from Gloucester Point to Gen.
Hooker’s headquarters, right arouud the ene
my, and without the loss of a single man.
Col. Kilpatrick left Gloucester Point on Sat
urday last, and. passing in a southeast direc
tion through Gloucester county, crossed the
Dragon River at Solutcr, and thence through
Middlesex county to Urbana, on the Rappa
hannock, crossing the river to Union Point.
Col. Kilpatrick proceeded through Westmore
land and King George counties to near the
headquarters of General Hooker. No diffi
culty was encountered la Gloucester county,
but at Dragon River the bridges were all
found to be destroyed, and the rebel General
Stuart massed a force In order to compel Kil
patrick to cross the Rappahannock. Colonel
K. avoided him by constructing a bridge, and
crossing at a point on the Dragon not at all
anticipated by Stuart. The bridge was then
destroyed, and, to foil the enemy, the com
mand moved forward in several columns.
Tlie principal one, on the right, under Col
onel H. Duvls, of Illinois, took a southerly
direction, and went to Pine Lee, in the lower
part of. Middlesex county, taking the people
entirely by surprise, lor this section was con
sidered so secure from Yankee invasion
that parties from Richmond sent their ne
groes there for safe keeping. Colonel Jones,
who commands all the bushwhackers iu that
vicinity, was captured. A few armed bush
whackers were seen, but they escaped into the
woods. A rebel mail was captured, but the
letters were mostly of a private character.
There was one, however, from Gen. Stuart,
wherein the latter promised protec
tion to the people from this very cavalry raid.
This portion or the command reached Urban
na on Sunday evening, having ctptured a large
number of horses and mules, and being fol
lowed by a motley crew'of contrabands, ofull
ages and both sexes. Among the captured by
tnis portion of the command, was a Confeder
ate agent with $13,000 in Georgia and Missouri
The left wing of the command went In a
northeast direction, and reached the road
north of Urbana on Sunday evening. Here
tie picket of the enemy, which was to anni
hilate the whole force, was encountered.
A detachment charged and drove them
across the Dragon River, at Gbnrch Mills,
and then burned the bridge and retired, and
on Monday morning the whole Federal
command was at Urbana, ready to cross
the river to protect this part of the move
ment. The Ferry boats star, Wm. F. Fra
zer, and Long Branch, light draft steamboats,
were sent to transport the troops across the
river, and the gunboats Yankee, Freeborn,
Anacosto, Currituck, Primrose, Ella, and Sat
ellite, of the Potomac flotilla, were sent up
the river, and the command crossed safely,
aud in dne time rejoined Gen. Stoncman’s
command. The immediate benefit of the
raid, aside from the good effect npon our
own, was in the capture of 200 horses and
mules, forty wagons laden with the provis
ions, and 1,000 contrabands. Among other
articles captured was the flag of the 13th Vir
ginia regiment.
New York, June s,—The Himes' corres
pondent with CoL Kilpatrick, says the rebels
bad taken especial pains to capture this com
mand, and while rebel citizens had destroyed
the bridge over the Dragon River, Stuart,
with a large force, was waiting at a ford some
six miles further up to force them to cross at
a narrow place, but our pioneers built a
bridge, over which ourforces crossed without
difficulty, and then destroyed it. -
The letter from Stuart, captured In a rebel
mall, was directed to a jmerilla Colonel, who
was surprised by CoL Davis and captured in
his own house. The citizens of the country
through which Kilpatrick passed, expressed
themselves pleased with the conduct of
our men. The result ot the raid
is that a complete circuit was
made of the rebel army, the destruction of
millions of dollars worth railway properly
and material, the capture of hundreds of
horses and mules, forty wagon loads of pro
visions, a thousand contrabands, and the de
moralization of the blacks throughout the
whole country.

I hare teen much troubled with catarrh of too wont
type for some twenty years. I: gradually grew worts,
producing cough and hoarseness, destroying tha sense
of smell, and brealdnc down my general health to such
a degree ps to compel me to resign my pastorate and
suspend public speaking. T made diligent nse of tha
usual remedies, such us sands of divers kinds, nitrate
cf silver, tar -water, olive tan and Inhalations, hat
without any very salutary effects. Last summer 1
heard of Dr. LlghthlU's sncccssftil mode of treating
Catarrh, visited aim, and put myself under his treat
ment. I began Immediately to Improve, and thlalm-
Brovement has gone on to the present time. ttr Ca
