THE NEWS.
There is nothing new from Vicksburg,
though the spell of quiet and silence cannot
last much longer. Gen. Grant's best secu
rity lies in the fact that he knows he is in
great danger, »nd has provided again*:' it.
The news from Hortb Carolina is im
portant. The doctrine of State Eights is
returning to plague the inventors. Horth
Carolina is in a derided state ol ebullition,
and the heat is intensifying against the
head conspirators who are charged with
bavins discriminated unfairly against the
Old Horth State.”
Latest advices say that among the recent
heavy reinforcements to Gen. Grant, (Jen.
Herron has gone with 8,000 men and Gen.
Tenderer with 4,000; a large proportion
of these are lowa troops. The 20th has
gone with Gen. Tandever. The heroes of
Praine Grove will give a good account of
themselves and their noble State.
The Copperheads of Ohio ratify the
jiomiiiatlon of the Chattanooga Jtebd, and
hoist the name of Vallandigham. Can
loyal men fail to see Tvhither these pure
patriots arc drifting? Our Washington
dispatch contains the significant Mat that
hereafter military departmental orders of
a certain class must be sent to Washing
lon for approral, before being issued. It
trill nof before all our military command
ers trill find ample orders of this class,
originating at Washington and sent to
them ready made. _
An uneasiness pemula in Maryland
and Pennsylvania as to the possible intent
of the rebels to mate a formidable raid
norlirward. Goy. Curtin has called out
the minute men. Jtlaj. Gen. Broots has
hecn appointed to the new Department of
the Monongahda, Perhaps it will be nec.
cssaiy for the rebels to penetrate a loyal
Stale before timid men, who walk before
the people in list dippers, will bdieye that
anything more is needed than grand juries
to stay the rebellion. We are in a state of

XHS MEETING EASTEVENING.
The meeting called at Metropolitan
Hall, last evening, to endorse the action of
Gov, Tates in proroguingthe Legislature,
was an entire success. In numbers and
ppirit it attested that solid and sober citi
zens of all classes are relieved and breathe
freer now- that the associated knaves that
occupied the State capital as their office
for private bargaining, brokerage and
fiend ore sent home to their friends, and
the key turned upon them.
The leading cause for congratulation is
5n the fact that Gov. Tates, knowing the
temper of these men, and the service they
toped to perform as Codperheads, antici
pated their treasonable acts and squelched
them in advance of their accomplishment
Jn doing so it is no small cause of congrat
ulation, that a long list oflocal and private
tills, the most corrupt that were ever
Spawned in legislative purlieus, are slain in
embryo, and among them the monstrous
swindle, the Wabash Railroad (with a
Horse in it)
Let no one mistake the tenor of the meot-
ang last night, and deem that any of our
Citizens believe that the monstrous nature
cf this local measure furnished the ground
cf Gov. Tates' action. Our citizens thank
■>,im for the enlarged and patriotic foresight
ivhich led him to shut off approaching
legislation, intended to hamper and insult
the loyalty of our State, hut they add n
Special accord of gratitude for the local
and municipal service conferred. The
“Gridiron” is now, henceforth, to he only
an instrument ofhot torture tor the hungry
young lawyers who, intending to cook
their own ample mead thereon, nt the ex
pense ot the city, find themselves broiled
on their own implement, and done to a
turn at their own fire.
“The meeting was a proof that Chicago
■will stand by the Governor and the State
Administration. It was a happy earnest
that the sums will he forthcoming which
are rendered necessary hy the intentional
failure ot the Copperheads to pass the ap
propriations, and care for our wounded
troops. Chicago will sustain the Govern
or, and lock hands with loyal men
throughout the State to advance all the
sqide that may ho required to Tmdntflfa Q ur
■Jjonor abroad and at home. Illinois is
3qyal; Chicago is loyal, and the Governor,
••Who has lid our State and city of a dis
grace like that of the Legislature, will not
lack of appreciation and hearty support
VOLUME XT I.
THE RQOBOGAXIOft,
Tbc Copperhead print flies to the res*
cue of the dispersed conclave at Spring
field, and contends that the Governor's act
proroguing them was illegal. And this is
the argument it offers.
In the legislative history of this country
there cannot he found a precedent that trill
justify the assumption that the Governor of a
State can take action upon or recognize any
net whatsoever of a Legislature until he xb
officiary informed of it No such disagree*
merit as the const! utlon contemplates had
taken place. There had been no committee
of conference appointed, even, with a view
to reconcile the disagreement, and neither
houtc had communicated to the Governor its
action upon the resolution “of adjournment.
Bow, then, did he know that anysach resolu
tion had been offered and voted upon ?
TLcrc was no legislative precedent
needed. No particular form followed hy
an Executive of another State is binding
on the Governor of this State. The plain
language of our Constitution must not ho
twisted to suit the mode of procedure
adopted under the Constitution of some
other State. But the Governor teas offi
cially informed of tho disagreement to all
intents and purposes. The preriding offi
cer of the Senate notified him of the dis
agreement, in his capacity as President of
the Senate. So that assumption falls to
the ground.
No committee of conference was need
ed “to reconcile the disagreement” The
Constitution requires nothing of the sort
A motion to appoint such committee would
o ; itself, he proof that a M disagreement ”
existed between the two Houses in respect
to an adjournment The Governor is not
required hy the Constitution to writ until
a Conference Committee have argued the
question and reported to their respective
houses, whether they can agree or not.
The language of the Constitution is as
plain as the nose on a man's face. It reads
as follows:
Src. 18. Art. 4. ** In case of a dUagreementhe*
tween ihe twvhount nithre*peet to the time of ad-
Joummeni, the Governor *hall hate potter toad-
Journ the General Awntly to evch time a* he
provided It be not to a period bo
yond the next constitutional meeting of the
some."
There is nothing said here about waiting
until “ committees of conference have been
“ appointed and failed to reconcile tbe dis
u agreement” The precise state of facts
contemplated by tbe Constitution existed.
The Senate, by a vote of fourteen yeas to
seven nays, adopted a resolution to adjourn
sine die on the Sth of June, which on the
same day was submitted to tbe House of
Representatives, which refused to concur,
but substituted the 22d of June, In which
amendment the Senate refused to concur.
And there tbe two Houses came to a dead
lock, having disagreed, as their journals
show. the President of the
Senate certified tbe fact of tbe disagreement
to tbe Governor, and be, by virtue of the
power conferred upon him by the section
of the Constitution above quoted, legally
and properly adjourned tbe session until
the first day of January, 1805.
But it was not necessary that be should
have “ official” knowledge of the disagree
ment. Hothing more was needed than that
he should know the fact to exist He might
leant this by a perusal of the journals or in
any other way whereby the fact came
to his knowledge. It might happen that
the officers of the two houses would neg
lect to inform the Governor of their disa
greement, and thereby keep the Legisla
ture in a“ dead lock” for months at the
expense of the treasury and to the detri
ment of the public.
Ho amount of special pleading or petti
fogging con make It appear that the proro
gation was not legal The thing was done
according to the organic law of the
State. There can he no question about the
lawfulness of the act, and but one man in
a hundred will dispute the propriety of it
The Governor stated in a few words, as
delicately as possible, the reasons that im
pel him, as an honest man and a patriot,
to prorogue the session, viz.:
And, whereas, I fully believe that the in-
tercsts of the people of the State will be
best subserved by a speedy adjournment,
the past history of the Assembly holding
out no reasonable hope of beneficial results
to the citizens of the State or the army in
the field, from its further continuance.
IT IS DEAD.
Some of the Copperheads set up the ab
surd claim that the Legislature has not
been legally adjourned, because the Speak
er of the House refused to recognize the
Governor’s Private Secretary, who read
the adjournment njessage to the House.
But “that cock won’t fight.” The
iacts are these: When the Private
Becrctaiy commenced reading the mes
sage, the House and Speaker listened
until they learned what it meant; there
upon, the speaker began to pound furiously
with his gavel to stop the reading, but the
Sec’y went on and finished it and then re
tired. After which “ little Puller,” who had
Stopped during the reading, resumed his
speech on the Wabarii swindle. He was ar
guing against the motion of Mr. Haines, of
Lake, for a reconsideration. When he fin
ished the Rcpuhlicanmemherswerepicking
up their books and papers and leaving. The
Copperhead members gathered around the
Speaker’s chair and foamed andraved and
swore at a furious rate. Buckmaster, the
Speaker, called the members to order.
When quiet was restored he said, “that
“for the first time since be occupied
“the chair he would rise a point
of order. If the message they
“ they had heard read, meant anything, it
“ meant that the session was terminated."
Throwing down his gavel, he declared that
“ it was no use talking, the institution was
“ defunct, and the Legislature was played
“ oat, and they might as well quit first as
' “ last.” The Senate had already adjourn
ed, and the members dispersed. The sub
sequent attempt ot the Copperheads to
rail}', and pretend that the corrupt and
infamous thing “still lived,” was a farce
and any bills they pass will have no more
legality than the resolutions of a village
lyccum. - There has been no quorum pres
ent since the Speakers vacated their re
spective chairs. The Legislature of ’62 is
dad.
f-;"TTe arc enrions to know how much
certain Wabash Bailway gentlemen are
out of pocket in cool cash. Report puts
the amount at $20,000. A whole flock of
lobby vultures had to he fed, and some of
the members demanded the “ green backs”
in their hands. like sensible men they
would not “trade” for stock. One Copper
head member, it is reported, threatened to
“blgw” on the “ring” nnlcssjbis mouth was
stopped by a roll of “legal tenders.” He
got §I,OOO cash for looking owlish and
keeping silent, —so it is said.
WHERE IS IX t
Where is the Gridiron Railroad Bill?
was the inquity about town yesterday. It
seemed to be assumed in some quarters
that the Governor not having vetoed it, he
might not do so, and the monstrosity even
tually become a law after all Some of the
Gridiron proprietors, indeed, affected to
believe that the thing was all right We
happen to know that it is all right The
Governor will not veto It He will not he
required to kill it in that way. He saves
his veto to kill vital measures.
The Wabash swindle is still-honx, and
will never he heard from again. Governor
Tates will not go to the expense of amon
ument for it The hill has never been
rigned hy the preriding officers of the two
houses, and ao has not come properly be
fore the Governor at alt The sudden
death of the Legislature left it intestate as
to this bill, audio an immense mass of hie
rubbish. There will be probably no ob
jection offered to the corporators in the
"Wabash (Horse) Railroad going down and
bringing home the bill to be sold for waste
paper. It is all there is left of the assets
of the company.
SATE US FBOBI OUB FRIENDS.
Contemplate for an instant the spectacle
of a Democratic Mayor and a Committee
chosen by a Democratic Council speeding
post haste to Springfield to ask a Repub
lican Governor to save them and the city
from their friends. There Is a limit even
to the patience of Copperheads with one an
other, and Hovc-in Sherman himself found
in the Gridiron railroad scheme a hit of
cookery decidedly overdone. The case will
probably come before the invincible Club,
and little Fuller be made to take a back
seat henceforth, while a special guard will
be set over the Alderman from the Third
ward. There has been no such stir made
in the Coppeihead camp for a long time.
Say “ "Wabash" to any of them, and hear
them growL There is a day of heavy
reckoning for these junior members when
the happy family get together.

burg yesterday, under the supervision of the
redoubtable Trcd. Horn, formerly Captain of
the Ccdartmig Rifles, which company refused
to take up arms in defense of their country
at the opening of the war, an action which at
that time drew upon them the contempt and
Indignation of the entire State. The usual
analhainas were hurled at Gen. Burnside,
adulation of Vallandigham, contempt for the
administration, and love for the “ wayward
sisters” of the South. The meeting closed
with resolutions demanding the recall of Vol
landigbam, the dismissal of Burnside, the
rescinding of the emancipation act, and pro
posing offers of peace to onr Southern breth

[Special Dispatch to tho Chicago Tribune.]
Wat.xttt Hills, Vicksburg, via-Yazoo j
RivEn, June 5, via Cairo, June 11,1853. f
Joe Johnston took possession ol Tazoo
City on Sunday last. General Grant sent a
huge force to dislodge him, and a skirmish
took place between our infantry and the
rebel cavalry under General John Davis,
at on the cast shore of the Tazoo,
fifty njiles above the mouth. We took
thirty or forty prisoners, and had a few
wounded. Our cavaliy are in hot pursuit
of the rebels, who only fired one volley
and then fled.
The fete of Vicksburg must bo decided
within ten days, but there is no fear felt on
our side as to the result.
We are within 160 yards of the rebels*
strongest works, and our sharpshooters keep
the rebel gnus silent.
The Union ,flag has been seen hoisted over
several bouses in the country between the
Tazoo and the Big Black River. Deserters
etill come in drily, and the city Is suffering
Jrom our converging fires.
PniLADELrniA, Juno 11. —Tho following
has been received by mail from Washington,
dated tlic 10th:
Two dispatches have been received to-night
from Gen. Grant, addressed to different gentle
men in high official positions. The dispatches
are dated Monday. An important fact, and
one which has occasioned much anxiety, is
derived from them, namely, that Gen. Grant
waslu communication with Gen. Banks as
late as on the 4th, at which time Port Hudson
was closely invested. Gen. Grant reports,
what Is already known, or believed, that Gen.
Johnston is concentrating his troops to ope
rate against bim. He mentions a report that
three divisions are moving from Bragg, to re
inforce Johnston. Breckinridge Is known to
have joined Johnston. Vicksburg is silll
closely invested, and the siege is progressing
favorably. Tbe tone ol the dispatches is re
presented to be such as to show that he fears
neither the enemy in front nor in the rear,
and will protect his lines at all hazards. It la
presumed he did not know at the date of the
telegram, whether or not he was to bo rein
forced. This information inspires increased
Lope and confidence in the final success of the
siege.
New Yore, June 11.—Rumors are afloat of
a disaster at Vicksburg. No confirmation
cither way. It Is understood that advices
from Vicksburg to the sth have been received
in Washington, but are not thought to bo of
an Important character.
The reported repulse of Banks at Port Hud
son, in the Richmond papers, undoubtedly
refers to the action of the 27th.
Up to noon to day no intelligence of any
disaster had been received at Washington.
Washington*, Jane 11.—The Government
has received advices from Grant to the Sth
inst., saying, everything Is progressing satis
factorily.
HNewTobs, June 11.—The Tribune says:
Wc have a letter from our correspondent,
“ Xenophon,” to the Cth Inst Ho gives a
hopeful view of the siege. He reports that
the repulse of a sortie against one of our min
ing parties, on the night of the 3d, demon
strates that Joe Johnston cannot possibly get
near cnongh to Grant to strike, without being
extinguished, and says that the garrison will
soon be compelled by Hindoo to surrender.
Wahusotox, Jane 11.—An unofficial tele
gram from the vicinity of Vicksburg, received
to-day, says the rebels in small force attacked
MUllkcn’s Bend and Young's Point, on the
Cth inst., but were decisively repulsed at both
points.
The colored troops at the former place at
first gave way, hut upon hearing that those
of their number who were captured were
killed, they rallied with great fury, and routed
the enemy.
Advices to the 4th tnst. have been received
everything then looked favorable to our
final success.
Caiijo, June 11.—Rev. Hr. Gibson, Rector
of an Episcopal Church, near Vicksburg, ar
rived to day from the front. He tells a glow
ing story in behalf of the rebels, and a very
gloomy one for the Federal army. He comes
with a puss at the expense of the Government,
and desires to go on at same rate, but 1 doubt
if he is worthy of the confidence and generos
ity that has been reposed in him.
It is probable that the rebels hayc a few
light Bijuadrons of men between Yazoo and
Black River. Thursday morning last, Gen.
Kimball, with 3,000 troops, landed at 8a tart la,
thirty miles below Yazoo City. A force of
2,000 rebels, supposed to be under Wirt
Adams, were near that place, and Gen.
Kimball marched out to give them battle.
At ten o’clock he came up with the rebel
pickets and a brisk figbt ensued. The rebels
were completely routed. Our loss is twenty
in killed and wounded; the rebel loss is not
known, but must be considerable. Kamball

camp equipage—all of which was destroyed.
The rebels continue to fire into passing
boats, in the region around the month of

cut off our communication.

Jackson, Saturday, May SO.
There Is no news from Vicksburg since yes
terday, but there Is no apprehension felt here
os to events at that place.
No fighting at Vicksburg,
The enemy has quit the storming process
and is going to try the starving.
From reliable authority I learn that Grant
is Intrenching in parallel lines with our bat
teries, but out of reach of onr guns, and
keeping up communication above and below
Vicksburg, thus cutting off Vicksburg en
tirely.
He is also intrenching at Big Black Bridge,
and the fords above ana below.
Information received states the enemy s
cavalry went to Bolton’s depot, twenty miles
from Jackson, on the Southern road, and
burnt the depot, a largo lot of corn, and 800
or 900 bales of cotton, besides committing
other depredations.
A correspondent of a Mobile paper states
that a large body of Misslssipplons have been
ordered and are now on the way to defend their
own State, their place in the army here (Ten
nessee) being suppled by soldiers from other
States. They are mostly cavalry, and under
tke command of Gens. Jackson and Cosby,
who are transferred to Gen. Johnston’s
department. The entire cavalry which Van
Dom commanded on the left has been placed
under the command of Gen. Forrest.

AFFAIRS AT TORT HUDSON,
(From the Richmond Enquirer, June S.J
It Is generally conceded that Banks landed
debt or ten thousand troops at Biyou Sara
last Tuesday, and that they proceeded in the
direction of Port Hudson; and U is feared
that place, like Vicksburg, is now surround
ed. and perhaps more thoroughly cut ofi.
fcen, Gardener will not permit himself to
remain hemmed in at that place, unless he is
overpowered by troops from the north and
south of his position.

PUGH ON PATRIOTISM, PUGH!
[Special Dispatch to tho Chicago Tribune.]
Columbus, Ohio, June 11,1553.
The Democratic State Convention to-day
nominated Vallandighani for Governor, and
GcorgeE. Pugh for Lieutenant Governor, and
tho whole ticket by acclamation.
Pugh made a violent, bitter speech, in
which he pitched into Gov. Tod and General
Burnside. He said more than ever Vallandlg
ham or Voorhecs dared to say. He scorned
Order No. 38, and trampled on all military
Orders that defined treason.
He spoke somewhat in favor of supporting
the Government, and holding the Administra
tion responsible for all failures, and urged
that in the platform no allusion be made to
war or peace, bat that they be confined simply
to questions of freedom and personal liberty.
The resolutions are very Jong and amount
to nothing, and nrb not satisfactory to the
members of the Convention.

Gen. Hunter’s recently published letter is
genuine. A letter from Port Royal says that
the letter from Gen. Hunter to Jeff. Davis,
under date of April 22d, is a document which
will doubtless attract great attention through
out the North, even as it has here. This let

thorities in command. It has, however, been
sent North by a special messenger, md by

Intcetluc Trouble Brewing for trio
Rebels.
Newdern, N, C.j June 9.—lhe United
Spates transport steamer Albany leaves here
this morning, at 6 o’clock, for New York.
The concurrent testimony of deserters leave
no doubt tliat the long smouldering fires of
revolution are breaking out in North Caroli
na- that disaffection has reached a point far
beyond even the significant Intimations of the
journals of the State. Several thousand ar
rived refugees from the Conscription act, have
; been for weeks entrenched in the mountains,
successfully defying the Confederate authori
ties
The Raleigh Standard bitterly complains
that the whole rebel conscription act has not
been enforced in Georgia and Mississippi,
while North Carolina has been raked as with
a line tooth comb. .
It appears that in the battle of Chancellors
vDle twenty-nine North Carolina regiments
were placed in front to resist Hooker’s ad
vance, sustaining au immense slaughter, while
South Carolina and Georgia troops were held
in reserve. This massacre of North Caro
linians is boldly and freely denounced, and
the Confederacy is charged with gross injus
tice and had faith. Numerous and studied
indignities are put upon the State, and her
people will keenly resent it.
It is proposed to make Gen. Wild, of the
African brigade, military Governor of North
Carolina,

ed of the proposition, only regretting that
the lads do not warrant them in asking au
thority to raise 190,000, and declaring himself
ready as soon as a sufficient number could be
raised, to make them part of a command for
Gen. Fremont If it should be deemed expe
dient he would create a separate department
for Fremont so at to enable mm to cany out
his combination of white ondblack regiments.
A scales of public meetings in the rural coun

A Rascally' Speculation?
The Journal of yesterday containa-an ac
count of some Copperhead speculators, in
comparison with which cotton speculations
and army contracts ore of lUtle importance;
speculations of the most disgraceful and'ras
cally character. The Journal says;
Among the loudest of 1 these Copperhead de
daimers was one who a few weeks ago organ
ized a cotton-speculating firm in this city, for
operations on the Mississippi. Tbc members
of this firm were Hugh Maher, at one time
Democratic candidate fdr State Treasurer;
Cornelius Price, another’radical and violent
Copperhead, and Mr. Alfred Spink, who was
formerly Cashier of 1. H. Burch & Cs.’s Bank
In this city.
On thelCth of last April, Captain Bolton,
of the famous Chicago Battery bearing his
name, entrusted $2,745 to Mr. Spink, on behalf
of his command, for distribution among tneir
families in this city and vicinity. Time passed
on, and the money was not heard from, while
many of these soldiers* families were suffering
for want of the necessities of life.
The matter being represented to General
Grant, ho ordered Lieut 8. P. Tracy, of Bol
ton’s Battery, to follow and arrest Mr. Spink,
and in case of his refusal to disgorge the
money, to convey him within the lines of
Gen. Grant’s department.
Lieut. Tracy arrived In the city, a few days
ago, and at once -placed Mr. Spink under
arrest. The latter declared his •►lnnocence,
protesting that he bad paid over tbe money
to his partner, Hugh Maher, who bad pro
mised to faithfully disburse It for the benefit
of the soldiers’ families. At this point it
should be noted that gentlemen In this city,
who had been apprised of the rascality, had
frequently applied to both Maher and Price in
regard to the lands, but were invariably tum
edaway with unsatisfactory answers.
At the request of Mr. Spink, an officer ac
companied him to Maher’s office, where the
former accused the latter with his perfidy,
and denounced him in such round terms that
Maher finally disgorged nearly tho entire
amount, air. Spink generously making np the
deficiency from his own pocket. Lieutenant
Tracy, aud all interested in the case, fully
exonerate Mr. Spink from all blame or inten
tion ot wrong. In regard to Hugh Maker,
who, very fortunately, was not elected State
Treasurer, they have naturally enough arrived
at another conclusion—and our readers will
arrive there also.
