FRIDAY, JUNE 26 1863.
THE BIGHT THING IN THE BIGHT
PLACE.
One oi the most intensely Copperhead
places in Illinois is Monet Vernon, Jeflbrson.
It is the headquarters of all that is malig
nant and devilish. The Star, published
there, is a dirt}- little concern that contin
ually spouts treason of the most venomous
hind. ITc are glad to leant that an effort
is to he made to meet these treason
shriekers face to face. 'John A- "Wall, who
has served as sergeant in the 44th Illinois
regiment from the commencement of the
war, and who now carries so many of the
enemy’s bullets in Ids body as to unfit him
for service in the field, is going to start a
new loyal papa* in Mount Vernon, to be

as he regards one as a vital part of the
other. Mr. Wall should receive every en
couragement from the loyal people of the
State.
SUTEBI nv MISSOURI.
The great State of Missouri, which has
grown to such vast moral dimensions since
the war began, thinks it is now quite big
enough to swallow the whale; and the
State Convention now sluing in Jefferson
City, discussing the question of Emanci
pation, thinks the whale altogether out of
the question, and would prefer, as an ex
periment, that it should begin by swallow
ingjonah. In other words, the State is
for the immediate and unconditional free
dom of the slave, and the Convention,
either for a slow and gradual freedom, or
for a postponement of the same until the
4th of July, 1878.
Mr. Drake, of St. Louis, steps forward
and acts as bottle-holder to both parties,
whilst he still manages to represent the
popular feeling and conviction out of doors.
As an amendment to the second propo
sition .in the ordinance submitted by
Governor Gamble to the Couventionj
on the 23d instant—which postpones
the termination of Slavciy to the time and
date which arc mentioned above, he moves
that it shall cease altogether on the Ist of
January, 1884—which is precisely what
the State desires—and further, that the
slaves so manumitted, and their offspring,
shall be apprenticed to their former owners
until July 4th, 1876—which is like meeting
the extreme conservatives half way.
"What the final result will be it is pretty
hard to predict The people of the State
have gone ahead of the Legislature upon
this, great question, and can by no means
agree with Gov. Gamble, who treats it in a
veiy cavalier manner, as a thing of “ mere
internal policy,” with which he, as Gover
nor, has nothing to do; fortheysee dearly
enough now, that it is a thing which vitally
concerns the general, as well as the sec
tional, interests of the States, and that
there can be no more peace nor progress
until it is definitely settled. If justice is
done to the popular sentiment of Missouri,
Mr. Drake’s proposition must infallibly be
passed. But it nnfortunatdy happens that
the- majority of the Convention were
elected on the rebd platform, and pledged
to stick to Slaver}- to the last If the mo
mentous events of the war had instructed
them, as they have instructed the people,
there ■would be no difficulty in the matter;
tie slaves would be free next January. As
it is, we must abide by the issues of fate.
It ■is easy to see, however, into the
meaning of the majority proposal
respecting the abolition of slavery,
and Governor Gamble, knew well enough
what he was about when he introduced it
and made it the baas of the ordinance. It
was an attempt to prolong the slavery agi
tation in favor of the miserable oligarchy
whose mad defense of it, in the lace of the
people, has been the prolific cause of all
the murders and devastations which have
afflicted that beauttnrl hot distracted conn
try. Governor Gamble and his myrmi
dons, could not, however, suppose that a
Subterfuge so transparent as thin would
passmnster with intelligent citizens. For
this proposal to put off the freedom of the
slave for thirteen years, is equivalent, in
the opinion of the conspirators, to an in
definite postponement of it—and they
mean to shirk it if the people will let
them. But they must try another and cun
ninger dodge than this if they are to efiect
their purpose. "Who does -not see
that the Governor and his helots
are. endeavoring to gamble away
the interests of the State, and throw
them into the hands of the desperate Clay
banks, in order that they may have an- j
other chance of perpetuating the curse
WhiCh has already blackened Missouri
With fire, min and crime? They hope and
lesson with themselves that before the
thirteen years shall have expired, the ideas
and feelings which now agitate the public
mind upon this subject, will have subsided,
and that the persistent slaveholders will
once more be master of the position, and
so far triumph over the Radical party that
it will be easy for them to call another
Convention, and carry another proposi
tion, and a final one, to put off the period of
emancipation for a hundred years.
There is nothing for it, if Missouri is to
be saved from the crimes and miseries
WhiCh will be sure to come upon her, in
case this second proposition of the Ordi
nance is carried—nothing for it but the
issuing of a decree of immediate emanci
pation. Amcasure like this would at once
and effectually stop the game of the Clay
banks, and topple down all the schemes of
the slaveholding oligarchy, and break as
sunder, the last remnants of its power and
Influence. And this is what the Conven
tion will have to do, to satisfy the people,
who are clamorous for a settlement of this
obnoxious difficulty. If theyrefusetodoit,
it will still have to be done. For Missouri
liras never intended to be a slave state. It
ifi a land destined by its geography and
climate to be the home of a free people.

To his Excellency John A. Andrew. Governor of
tbe Commonwealth ofMassachuectts;
The undersigned. friends, kinsmen, and nehrh
bors of Massachusetts officers commissioned brer
nepro troops, respectfully request your Excellen
cy to use in their behalf your influence with the
Federal Government.
We learn from the newspapers that the rebel
Congress has passed an act occreeiag death to cap
tured officers of negro troops, and the surrender of
captured negroes In arms to the rebel States
authorities to be dealt with according to the law
of those States.
We know the character ofthe rebel leaders; we
know also the vigor or their executive policy.
cannot doubt, therefore, the prompt enforcement
ofsuch an act whenever captures shall aSord the
opportunity, unless arrested by action equally vig
orous and equally prompt on the part of thoToder
al Government, rear is the only motive to here*
lied upon in restraint of this threatened barbarity.
Wa need not press upon your Excellency the
primary Importance, the sacred duty, of securing
to those troops and their officers the same treat
ment and the same protection as is eajoyed by
white troops; bnt we deem it a matter of urgent
necessity, as a pledge to them and a warning to the
rcbcls.that thePresideut ofthe United States him
self should, as soon as the reported action ofthe
rebel government is authenticated, by emphatic
and unequivocal proclamation or order published
throughout the whole laud, declare such protection
to the one and such penalty to the otner as will
bind our enemy to the just laws of war.
In seeking such action from the President, we
express no opinion as to the original policy of en
rolling blacks in our National army, and we repu
diate being actuated by revenge for injuries threat
ened by the enemy on onr troops. We simply wiih
to deter that enemy from outrages wholly unjusti
fied by the usages of modem warfare.
To this end. we respectfully ask yonrcarlyaud
earnest intervention with the President in favor of
brave and faithful officers, and In behalf of those
soldiers to whose fortunes they have linked their
own.

destruction or the Bcbcl Ram
Chattahoochee.
Eebel papers announce a terrible explosion
on board the rebel ram Chattahoochee, in the
riTcr ol that name.
The Chattahoochee was a strong-built, sea
going steamer, constructed after the Merrimac
pattern* and carries a battery of four broad
sides and two plrot guns, one of which was a
nine-inch rifle.
A correspondent of the Charleston Courier,
writing from Quincy, Fla., famishes the fol
lowing:
The news received here to-day is appalling
indeed. A gentleman reached here to-day
from Chattahoochee, and reports that, the
schooner Fashion, at anchor in the Chatta
hoochee river, twenty-five miles above Apala
chicola, was loading with cotton, and intend
ed to mn the blockade. She had received
sixty bales of Sea Island cotton, and was wait
ing for another arrival, when a spy or some
traitorous person conveyed the tact to the
enemy’s fleet blockading. The result was
that the enemy sent nine launches with armed
men, captured the schooner with the cotton
on board, and took her to the fleet When
the news reached Chattahoochee, Llcnt Guth
rie, commanding the Confederate States iron
clad gunboat Chattahoochee, ordered steam
to be raised, and was determined to pass the
obstructions in the river if possible, with a
view of attacking the United Stages steamer
and Godeavoring to relieve the Fashion. Bat
the some gentleman reports that just as the
steamer was leaving her anchorage, her boil
ers exploded, and twelve persons were killed,
while several othbrs were badly scalded.
The Columbus Sun has the following de
tailed statement ol the destruction of the
Chattahoochee: '
The boiler exploded while the vessel was at
anchor, and at the time there was only seven
pounds of steam. The disaster happened im
mediately after cold water had been put into
the boiler.
The magazines of the ship were within
three feet of the boiler, and the shell-room as
near. As soon as the explosion occurred a
panic commenced, and the men jumped over
board, fearing on explosion of magazine
and shell rooms.
The ship was found to be filling, when the
f>oor wounded and burned sufferers were
anded, together with the personal effects of
the crew and officers. It was raining and
blowing very hard, and the bank was very
muddy upon which the wounded were landed.
The poor fellows lay writhing and groaning in
the mud for some time, before they could be
got to a cotton gin near by.
The ship was hauled in near the shore, and
has sunk to her deck, settling firmly on the
bottom. The powder shqiu are a total
loss.
Midshipman Malloiy died at the Ladies’
Hospital, in this city, on yesterday evening,
at five o’clock.

Lawler’s brigade at the battle of Black River

Last evening the enemy succeeded, in dis
mounting one gun of the IGth Ohio battery.
They arc particularly spiteful toward* that
battery for it Las annoyed them exceedingly.
This is the first instance of disabling our artil
lery within my knowledge, during this term
of siege.
Yesterday my attention was called to three
64 pound shot from a rifled gun that were
thrown into the front yards of tho Carr Hos
pitaL The Hospital Is located on an eleva
tion with two large hospital flags floating from
the top and about one mile to the rear ol their
works. The satisfaction they evidently de
rive from firing at it, is only anoiher evidence
of rebel barbarous proclivities.
In front «f Carr's division the pickets were
only about ten yards apart last night. Con
versations were carried on all night In au or
dinary tone of voice between a nation's sol
diery and representatives of sweet England's
“belligerent power." A rebel ofllcorofthe
guard and one of our officers met, sat down,
and had a quiet little talk over “the situa
tion.*’ We are fast learning that men who
Lave been associated with rebels fortwo years
past, are either so ignorant as to be unreliable
In their statements, or so u»cd to lying and
deceit, that we cannot believe a word they
say. Deserters are very plenty, and so are
their stories, but they are hwdly worth ‘re
peating. They do well to relieve the ennui of
a siege, and famish food for speculation.
The rebel officer states that he is Informed
there arc one third rations to last eighteen
days for their army in Vicksburg, but nc can
not coc wAcrv they are. Ho also says there is
a general desire in Vicksburg for another
assault on their works, so that they
“may demolish tho remainder of this
army." Intelligent men think starva
tion stories are told to deter ns from
any assault, hoping for a speedy sur
render, and that all expression of desire* for
an senmitt are vnado to prevent any attack.
My own opinion is, that they have food, such
es it is, to last for some weeks—perhaps
months. They have some fresh beef and
plenty of com and a mill to grind it, that the
mortar bants have not yet destroyed, though
they have worked for Us destruction. It is
altogether probable they have a quantity of
salt meats also. Of course tins is a limited
diet, and must destroy the effectiveness of nn
army after a time; bat a rebel will live and
thrive much longer on a piece of “ hoe cake"
than would seem possible, especially if he is
much exercised about these little national
questions we are now tiyiog to adjust Lim
ited rations in quantity and quality, constant
annoyance from our artillery, and the reced
ing prospect of succor from Johnston, may
produce a condition in the army to force
Pemberton’s surrender. I expect the 4th of
JulywHl be celebrated by this annyou side
of Vicksburg, and I hope the traitors may be
reminded of the birth of this nation by the
most fearful showers of shot and shell ever
witnessed on the American continent.
Nothing has transpired within the last two
days to change the aspect of afihtrs material!?.
Our line of “approaches" progress finely.
Foot by foot the union army advances, until
we near the muzzles of traitor’s guns. Yes
terday morning Gen. Carr took observations
in person within thirty yards of the rebel
forts. His division, as usual, Is up to 'the
works and ready for action. Give him equal
advantages, and he is not the mau to let any
one surpass him. Reinforcements that are
constantly arriving, and the entire dearth of
news, rumors even, from the rear, have dis
pelled all feare for the present of any trouble
from Johnston. Current events indicate that i
we no longer act strictly on the defensive in
that direction, 1
Wc Lave had several fine showers lately, and
the temperature of the atmosphere Is much
reduced. It is lovely weather now. The
health of the army improves, and the morale
continues excellent. Pabtbidoe

patiently awaiting the issue of inevitable
necessities, and the adaptation of forces, to
accomplish the great end so devoutly wished.
The history of one day at the rear of Vlcks
bnig Is the history of many already passed,
and may be the record of quite a number yet
to come. Were it not that something is
looked for and expected daily from the great
theatre of war, one would hardly be tempted
to take up the pen in these days of “scarce

paragraphs." It would please a man without
“tie asthma” to describe “what ho saw4n

of some “ vivid description,” not only of his
own heroic deeds, but of “what he saw;"
Human calculations are often vain I “ ’Twas
always so!” A shell unexpectedly burst in
the air, and he had only time enough to dodge
apiece two by three inches that was making
straight for his head. He was badly demoral
ised, and commenced an inglorious retreat.
Another one burst still nearer, and the retreat
became a rout.
To : day I have visited the entire advance
works, from the left of Gen. Carr to the right
of Gen. Logan—a distance of several miles.
Through tunnels and ravines, and over hills,
dodging about to keep out of range of mus
ket balls, I made my way throngh the tortu
ous line of our works to within twenty feet
of the rebels 1 strongest forts. Our rifle pits
are now within thirty to two hundred yards
of the enemy’s line—varying according to the
ground over which we advance. It is pre
sumed that your readers are aware how the
rebel, works are constructed. They consist
of forts placed apart at various dis
tances, conforming to the nature of the
ground averaging one-fourth mile perhaps,
and these are connected by rifle pits or ditches.
Our approaches to the torts are from our rifle
pits running towards them, sometimes at
right angles with our pits, and sometimes at a
less acute angle. When the direction of our
approach is immediately towards the fort, our
workmen are protected by a large bundle of
cane or cotton that is movedtdong before them
as they advance. When (he approach is made
in a direction diagonal to the fort, “ gabions 1 ’
£re used. These are rough baskets, made out
of cane or wild grapevines, and used by put
ting them between the workmen and the rort,
and a little in advance. By thro wing the dirt a
Uttie in advance of those In front -into the
baskets, they are soon filled and make a very
good breastwork. Negroes work during the
da; In many places, and soldiers rellere them
at night Yesterday several spirited attempts
■were made to drive our workmen back, by
shooting from the forts, bnt they did not efect
anything.
Carr and Logan seem to be pressing the en
emy most seve-ely, the former on the Bald
win’s Ferry Eoad, and the latter on
the Jackson- and Vicksburg road. Each
Jonorably striving to get the flmt fort taken,
and it is now quite a question which one will
be first successful. When Vicksburg ia in our
possession, all those persons who have a taste
for the wonderful will here find a field for the
gratification of thelrpasslon.
The “sightseer” can profitably consnme
several days in onr own works, and a longer
time in those of the enemy. Their works
have been constructed under the supervision
of a very able engineer, and a very great
amount of labor has been expended on them.
Any defect that has been developed by onr
artillery has been remedied since the siege
has been in progress, until now they areas
nearly perfect as earthworks can be made.
Last night they built a-wire fence in front of
a tort that is closely besieged. This is a con
fession of their weakness and a silly affair not
expected of them. What will a trail wire
fence avail them ? It only excites the ridicule
of onr army. They have lately placed a mor
ar to such a position lhat-onr artillery cannot
reach it, and they are steadily at work shelling
Logan s division. No material damage Tm*
yet been inflicted, but it annoys the command
a good deal. Within the past few days the
rebels are nerved to desperation or have ac
quired more courage, it is a question which,
and manifest quite a disposition to return our
artillery fire. They have been very gallant on
onr left to night, and very likely may wake

Two MILES Tnosi THE COCRTIIOUBE, V
Jane 18,1853. )
The entire number of guns the rebels are
working upon ns Is not over six, with one or
two mortars. There is no change In the situ
ation, with the exception of the progress we
arc making in our approaches; the*c are all
that could bo desired.
There seems a on the
part ot Pemberton toehold out to the vorj
last moment. I don’t think it is true that hU
provisions are giving out, bat have no doubt,
from all I can gather, that with the fractional
ration now being dealt out to his troops, his
provisions will last many days yet. The am
munition seems the more likely to give out
first. This conclusion is gathered from a care
ful weighing ol the reports given by deserters,
as well as the opinions ot our general officers.
1 am not permitted, of course, to state the
number of reinforcements that have arrived,
but I have been kindlj furnished with infor
mation in regard both to the former and the
additional forces, which enables me to state
that it is emphatically impossible for any
army that Johnston can raise to effect any
damaging flank or rear movement upon Gen.
Grant. After extensive inquiry among both
ordnance and commissary otileers, lam also
enabled to slate that we have all the ammu
nition and subsistence supplies that we need *
and that even if one source thereof should be
cut off by any raid of the enemy, others are
open. So that there is not a contingency sup
posable in which the Federal army here can
be caught In a trap, no matter how long the
rebels in the city yonder may hold out
Many of our troops are anxious fur an as
sault, but undoubtedly, in view of the pecu
liar advantages the rebels would have for
close rifle range at the very points we would
attack, an assault would be attended with
great slaughter among our troops.
The digging that we are doing is not 10 ex
tensive as seema to be generally supposed.
Our points of approach are very few, but
these few points will sap the enemy’s works
in their most vital parts.
The rebels, two or three days ago, planted
a mortar in a sunken place In Logan*, front
which they have been able to work more effec
tively than any battery they have yet estab
lished; but the fact that no range could be
obtained has rendered the work of this mor
tar comparatively futile. Last night the ene
my planted two guns of smalt calibre In
McArthur’s front, but have not been able to
work them much to-day, on account of the
tiring of our sharpshooters.
This morning CupL Powell, artillerist, of
BnDßom’e brigade, reports excellent progress
in Gen. R.*s approach, which is now assuming
a position decidedly threatening to the enemy.
The rebels are making desperate efforts to
dr.vo off the fatigue patty operating there,
and last night killed one aad wounded slx,and
l-thls morning have wounded three orfour. Our
men are not allowed to fire in return, it not
being desirable to draw any increased atten •
lion* of the enemy to that point. So exposed
was this work that considerable opposition
was made to it, but Gens. Grant, Sbermauand
McPherson are in fuvorof letting Cant. Powell
go on. through the grave-like narrow
trenches to day, and can testify that the bal
lets whizzing just over the heads of the work
men average one every second. If this work
is successful, I think it probable that it will
decide the fate of the leading forts of the
enemy, and Irom indications I opine that Gen.
Grant is watching its progress with unusual
interest. f
Gen. Logan with his battery of rifled can
non and his siege guns, is gradually levelling
down Fort mil, one of the strongest works of
the enemy. To-day Xogaa’s approach is so
close that a child can foss a marble over in
among the rebels.
The beat evidences of the damage done
by our shells among the enemy, are the con
stant daily increase in the number of their
hospitals, which is today particularly obser
vable, especially in Iront of Steele on the
right; and also the Increase In the number of
their sharpshooters, and their attempts to si-
Icnce our batteries. Thus far, however, not a
sinnle one of our guns has teen silenced.
The 15th Illinois, in Gen. Lauman’s divi
sion, on the left, took twelve or fifteen pris
oners last night, surprising a picket post.
Among them was a Captain. These prisoners
cursed Pemberton roundly, whlch,bythe way
all prisoners have of late done. They also
agree in slating that the provisions of the re
bel force arc constantly growing more scarce,
the rations now daily dealt out being hardly
a third the usual full ration. " J
A copy of the Vicksburg Whiff, of the 13th,
published on a sheet hardly as large as a shirt
bosom, was obtained last night from one of
the enemy’s pickets. It breathes venom in
most concentrated form. It complains
that this is a one-sided engagement—that
they (the rebels) are conducting it ac
cording to the principles of civilized warCire,
we (the Yankees) are firing on hospitals, and
■women and children. Bat how in the name
of Heaven the town of Vicksburg can be be
sieged without occasionally hurting some
body, it would puzzle any one to tell, who
should take one glance at the city, if our
guns were not'to be fired, unless within range
of come red flag, there would he an almost
gravelike silence along our works.

More “Arbitrary Arrests.”
The Cincinnati Commercial relates the fol
lowing gross exercise of arbitrary arrests by
some of our soldiers:
When a large body of the prisoners taken in
Mississippi by Gen. Grant were sent East to
be exchanged, the guard having them in
• charge were, at several points, annoyed by
butternuts, who were quite demonstrative in
expressing their sympathy for the unfortunate
Southern brethren. At Pittsburgh a squad of
the Bjmpa’hizcrs made themselves particular
ly offensive. They agreed with the secesh as
to the character of Jfie war, and as to the ob
jects for which it was being prosecuted by the
United States Government. They declared it
was an 44 abolition war”—“got up to free nig
gers”—unconstitutional and unholy,” &c..
• Ac., and taunted the blue jackets with obser
vations that they were 44 fighting for the nig
ger.” The blue-jackets-became deeply In
censed, and suddenly pitched Into the butter
nuts, hustled four of them into the cars at the
>oint of the bayonet, and took them alon»,
rearing with derision their vehement protes
tations that they were good citizens of Penn
sylvania, and had never belonged to the Con
federate army. Vain were the appeals of the
Pittsburgh captives. They were told they
need not try that old dodge. It was played
out. And they were actually put into Fort
Delaware along with thexr Southern brethren;
and our informant soys they were still in that
sympathetic company when he left. As their
names were not-on the roll of prisoners, wo
suppose they may be able to obtain their dls
chaige, and avoid transportation South in the
process of exchanging prisoners, and impress

ANNIVERSARY WEEK AT BLOOM
INGTON.
[From Our Own Eeporter,]
Bloomctotok, June Sf, 1883.
The great event in Bloomington'' life-
“Commencement Week,” is at hand—that
period in which both the instructors and
their pupils take a retrospective view of their
past yearns labors. This Anniversary has
brought together the State Board of Educa
tion, and a goodly number of the parents and
friends of the scholars, while that of the Illi
nois Natural History Society, will, I under
stand, be well attended—some members
having already arrived.
The character and objects of the State Nor
mal University is already too well known to
require any introduction or explanation at
this time. The present Faculty are Richard
Edwards, Principal, assisted by Edwin C.
Hewitt, Joseph A- Sewall, Leander H. Potter,
Thos. Metcalf, and Margaret E. Osband. Of
the Model School, CfaarlesF. Childs is Princi
pal, assisted by Levonia E. Ketchum as Teach
er of the Primary Department.
The examinations commenced on Tuesday,
In each of the departments, and are continued
to-day. Thus fir every thing is passing off
satisfactorily! and credibly to both teachers
and pupils. From the President’s repprt to
be submitted to this meeting, we glean the
following facts: During the first term of the
scholastic year, beginning in September, ihe
number connected with the Normal Universi
ty was eighty-nine ladles and forty-nine gen
tlemen—total 13S. During the next term 104
ladles and 50 gentlemen—total 154, The term
that has just closed numbered 103 ladles, and
57 gentlemen—total 160. Daring the first
term the Model School contained 07 boys.and
50 girls—total 163. During the second term,
00 boys, and 65 girls—total 155. Daring the
third term, 85 boys, and 67 girls—giving a to
tal of 152.
During the year the number of students in
the Normal School has been 130 ladies and 83
gentlemen—total 213. In the model, during
the year 83 girls and 143 boys—total 236.
Grand total in the University for the year 43%

The • Committee on the Heating Apparatus
employed at the University reported that
since the last meeting, Walworth, Hubbard &
Co. have increased tho heating capacity, by
the addition of considerable pipe through tho
building, and that they believe the later tests
made of the capacity were satisfactory, and
recommended that the work beaccepted. The
report was received and laid upon the table.
Mr, Buss from the Committee on Teachers,
moved that the salaiy of Miss Osband bo in
creased S2OO, making her salary hereafter
s£oo. He can see no reason why a female
teacher who is every way as competent andas
well qualified, to fill an equally laborious and
responsible position as that of a male teacher,
should teach for any less salary. A discus

ILLINOIS NATURAL HISTORY SOCIETY.
The Society met at 2 o’clock. Neither the
President, or either of the Vice Presidents,
being present, Hamilton Spencer, of Bloom
ington, was called to the chair. The Record
ing Secretary, C. D. Wilber, caq., read his
annual report While many similar institutions
have suspended operations, this society is
olive and at work, collecting whatever can be
gained for either department The Society
has aimed to collect only such an amount of
money as is necessary to rid the Society from
debt He finds it difficult to collect money
for this purpose now, as eveiy one feels like
spending all their gratuities for the war. Ho
also suggests that the Society should not
make any extraordinary effort now, that shall
be attended with great expense, but rather
“trim the ship, and sail near the shore” till
wer the war is over. He suggests that every
member of the Society should be expected to
render such aid as lies in their power
without compensation. He bad done this
from the vciy beginning of tho Society
and was still willing to give his time and la
bor to the Society, so far as be was able to de
vote either, after securing a livelihood.
The report was well written, and gave a
very flattering view of the condition of the af
fairs of the Society—tho work'that had been
accomplished and that in progress—consider
ing the inauspicious and discouraging circum
stances with which all matters of this charac
ter are carried for? ard, while the attention ot
the people is so universally turned in another
direction.

This important and interesting subject is
ably treated by the author, and I regret that a
lengthy abstract cannot bo given.
A lengthy scientific paper from Prof Alex.
Wmchell, of the University of Michigan, was
read, containing a disquisition on “The
Origin of the Prairies, and the .absence of
trees from their-sunhee,” The theory, os
ellndes to the loot that at. the close
of the Tertiary period, the vegetation cover
ing the continent was nearly the same as at
the present day. it then shows that the
seeds of this ancient vegetation must have
been mingled with the Drift deposltcs created
by.the events of the reign ot ice and the final
submergence—and then recites the well
known evidences of the former higher level
of the 44 Great Lakes.” The reading ot the
paper elicited considerable discussion, which
was participated in by Col. E. R. Row, Profs.
Worthen, Sewall, Wilbur and Munson, in
which the theory of the author was consid
ered untenable.
The Society adjourned till 8 p. m.
A Fearful Record,
An army officer writes from Louisiana to
the Boston Transcript, that the camps of the
black regiments In Gen. Banks’ army, are
models of neatness and order, and that bat
one man in the whole command has been
punished for misconduct. Never were men
seen to fight with more dauntless courage and
devotion than these raw recruits. He adds:
“Every man presenting himself to me to
be recruited strips to the skin, to be surveyed
by the surgeon. We do not accept one-half
that offer. On Tuesday, out of 83, only 33
were accepted. I havo directed my surgeon
to keepoccnrate lists of the causes of rejec
tion. They report to me that not one in fif
teen is free from marks of severe lashing. More
than one half are rejected because of disability
arising from lashing vilh whips' and the
biting ef dogs on their calves and thighs. It is
frightful. Hundreds of them have welts on
their backs as largo as one of your largest fin
gers. I intend to have these memoraada.ool
lected and published with certificates of sur
geons.”
THE LATE NAVAL PEAT OEF
SAVANNAH.
capture ofthe Hebal Iron-Clad Atlanta
Official Report cf Cap ala Bcdgers, of the
Weehiwkcn.
United States Steamer 'Wbshawken, }
Warsaw Sound, Qa., Jnne 17,1863. j
8m : I hare the honor to report that tM$
morning, at ten minutes past four, an Iron
clad vessel was discovered coming down at
the month of Wilmington River, also two
other steamers, one a side-wheel, and the
other a propeller; beat to quarters and com
menced clearing the ship for action. At twen
ty minutes past four shipped the cable and
steamed slowly down towards the northeast
end of Warsaw Island, At thirty minutes
past four turned and stood up the sound
heading for the Iron-clad, which at this time
was discovered to have the rebel flag flyin*
The Kahant, having no pilot, lollowed in our
wake... At five mmutea of five the enemy
being about one and a half miles distant
fired a rifle shot, which passed across our
stern and struck near the Nahant.
At this time the enemy was lying across the
channel, waiting our attack. At a quarter
past five o’clock, being distantfrom him about
800 yards, we commenced firing. At half past
five o'clockihe enemy hauled down his colors
End hoisted the white flag, we bavin* fired
fiveehots. Steamed near the iron clad and or
dered a boat to be sent alongside.
At a quarter to tlx o’clock, Llent. Alexand
er came on board to surrender the rebel iron
clad Atlanta. He reported the vessel aground
on the sand spit that makes to the southeast
from Cabbage Island. Shortly afterwards
Captain W. A. Webb came on board and de
livered up his sword. Sent a prize crew to i
take charge of the vessel, under the command
of Lieutenant Commander D. B. Harmony, of i
the Nahant. Sent also Lieutenant Command- I
er J. J. Cornwell, of this vessel, and Actio*
First Assistant Engineer J. G. Young, to take
charge of the engine. -
On examination, it was found that the
enemy had been struck four times—first, on
the inclined side by a fifteen-inch coned shot, i
which although fired at an angle of filly de
grees, with her keel broke in, the armor and i
wood backing strewing the deck with splin- I
ters, prostrating about forty men by the con
cnieion, and wounding several by broken
pieces of armor and splinters. One man has
since died. The second shot (eleven inch
solid) struck the edge of the over-hun*
knuckle, doing no damage, except breaking a
plate or two. The third shot (a fifteen-inch
coned) struck the top of the pilot house,
knocking it off and wounding two pilots and
stunning the men at the wheel. The fourth
shot, supposed to be eleven inch, struck a
port stopper in the centre, breakin* it in
two and shattering it very much, ond°drivin*
many fragments in through the port. °
At twenty minutes past eight the engine of
the Atlanta was secured by Engineer J. G.
Young, and the vessel backed off into deep
water, when she was bronght to an anchor.
The wounded, sixteen in number, were re
moved to the steamer Island City, which had
been kindly brought over from Fort Pulaski
by Colonel Barton, United States army. The
officers of the vessel were sent to the tug
Olendcr. and a portion of the crew to the
United States steamer Cimerone, for trans
portation to Fort Royal.
The Atlanta was found to have mounted two
C-inch and two 7-inch rifles, the C-inch in
broadside and the 7-inch working on a pivot
either as broadside or bow and stern guns.
There is a largo supply of ammunition for
these guns, ana other stores, said to be of
great value by some of the officers of the
vessel.
There were on board at the time of the
capture, os per muster roll, twenty-one offi
cers and 124 men, including twenty-eight
mariners. The captured rebel officers told me
that they thought we should find the speed of
the -Atlanta reach ten knots. They believe
her the strongest iron clad in the Contederacy,
and confidentially anticipate! taking both
the Nahant and Wcehawken.
The behavior of the officers and crew was
admirable. Lieutenant Commander J. J.
Cornwell did bis duty zealously aad efficient
ly. Acting -Master Benjamin Vf. Lorlng,
whom I recommend for promotion for gal
lant behavior under the fire of For; Darlin*,
served the guns admirably, as the result
shows. Hla energy and coolness were every
thing that could be wished. Executive officer
Lieutenant Commander J. J. Cornwell In
forms ac that on the berth deck the powder
and shell divisions, under Acting Master C
C. Kingsbury, wore the aspect of exercise so
completely that no one wonld have thought
the vessel was In action. The engine, under

description op the captured vessel.
The Atlanta is drawing fifteen feet of water,
and haa two months’ provisions on board, as
also an immense quantity of ammunition of
tLe TgTJ finest quality. Her guns are ot re
cent English manufacture and improved pat
tern—another evide-jce of British neutrality
While speaking of this part of the vessel, I
may say she presented on her gun deck an ap
pearance of the’most filthy character, and
strangely at variance with the uniform clean-
Hues ot vessels-of-war.
Hatch,
. Hergeneral appearance resembles very much
our iron clads on the Mississippi—such as the
Essex and Benton, for by no
means as strong and formidable. The gun
deck runs from stem.to stern, and over it is
the upper or spar deck. The sides are at
about an angle of forty-five oi grecs. They
are built ot oak and pine, tight to ten inches
thick, which is covered by solid iron bars run
ning from the upper spar deck to the water
lino, and one and a half ladies in thlckne®s
These arc securely fastened on by rivet# pass
ing through tho woodwork. Between tho
bars was a composition which lias become
nearly as bard as the iron itself
The pilot-house is built up through and
above the spar deck, about two feet. This is
constructed of solid Iron, five and a half
Inches thick, with two elongated look-outs uu
each of tho foursidcs. Her prowls of a moai
formidable character, extending about two
feet out from tho bow, attached to which aad
down the cutwater, we find what one would
term nothing less than au immense saw, the
teeth of which are made of the finest steel.
No doubt, should she ever attempt to run
down a vessel, this saw would absolutely saw
a ship’s side through.
The Atlanta carries four gun#, two six-inch
two seven-inch, undone pivot gun, forward*
This gun is fired through the forward port.
Her length overall is one hundred and eighty
feet, breadth forty feet, draught of vessefsix
teen feet, height of smokeplpe twelve feet.
She has engines of three hundred horse power
Her pilot-house is live feet square, with six
inches of wood backing, and five inches of
Iron plate. Her deck, forward and aft, is
plated with Iron two and a half inches thick.
Her armament consists of live Enfield 100-
pounders. Her ram is eix.feet.long by three
feet wide. Her roof, which slopes at an an»ie
of thirty degrees, is seventeen Uches thiclt—
twelve inches wood, covered with two layers
oftwoandahalfinchplates. Her plating is
all two and a half inches thick by five inches
wide Holes in her pilot house are'one inch
in diameter. She has four water tight com
partments. Her pilot-house and smokeplpe
are square. Her forward and after guns train
to starboard and port. In the lower layer of
her plating Is an alternate of pine wood.
The New South of the 20th instant some
additional particulars in rclationto the Atlan
ta which ore interesting. It says:
We Icam that the officers ot the Atlanta
came out with the intention of engaging and
capturing the Weehawken. She was followed
down by two wooden gunboats filled with
ladies and other excursionists, who were to
witness the fight, it having been arranged that
one of the gunboats should tow tho Weehaw
ken np to Savannah; then tho Atlanta was to
go to Ossabaw, capture a gunboat, take some
batteries, entrap the 47th New York, and
leave a force there to hold the batteries.
Next she was going to Charleston to co-oper
ate by signal with some rebel boats in annihi
lating the blockading fleet, after which she
was to pay her respects to the Port Royal
squadron. This nice little programme was
veiy summarily changed.
THE WAK IY pmwt-
The Trouble Amongtlio Pennsylvania
fflilltla—Necessity for a Speedy En
rollment—The Now Torlt Troops.
HAiuusßuna, Jane 23,1863,
If the absolute necessity of the enrollment
law needed demonstration, wo have It hero
and now in this very emergency. In obedi
ence to the nrgent appeals of the Governor,
and to the proclamation of the President, a
large number of citizens docked to the ap
pointed places of rendezvous. But they wero
for the most part an undisciplined mob,
without order or organization. They came, too,
from various motives. Some had a notion
that they were only wanted to defend the cap
ital—to lie down in rifle-pits on the other
bank of the river and shoot any
rebels that might - come across the
sight of their guns. Others were of the
opinion that they ought not to be carried
beyond the hounds of the State. I have be
fore explained the conflicting character of the
orders to which much of this diversity is to
he attributed. There is os much difference in
the actual mustering in. Some are mustered
in for six months, with the understanding
that it is only for “ the emergency.” Suppose
the emergency lasts more than six months,
what will they do then ? Agood number hare
gone home because they found that they were
required to be mustered in for six months at
least. Two or three regiments are here from
Philadelphia, and refuse to be mustered
in. They say they are willing to stay thirty
days, and defend the capital, but they hare no
notion of being sent to the front. There’s mar
tial ardorforyon. They wUlprobablygo heme
unless they can be sent to some interior place,
out of danger. This maybe done. Thopenonnd
of these regiments is similar to that of the
New York 7th, in point of social position, but
the members are mostly boys, and very raw
indeed. They would like to come oat for a
month’s military campaigning at the expense
of the Government, but they don’t care
about neglecting their business longer, or
fighting much, if any. A large proportion,
however, of the Pennsylvania troops have
been mastered in, without objection, for six
months. The New York troops, I under
stand. are mastered for thirty days. When
that time is np there will ho a great depletion
of the ranks.
Now, all this Is nobody’s fruit, because
there is no law to meet the case. There has
not yet been time enough to carry the enroll
ment law into effect. But If the enrollment
had been made, how simple the whole matter
would be. A draft could bo made in one dar.
the troops collected in two or throe more, an J
m a week, a large though roughly organized
force, obedient to one command, guided by
one set of laws and- regulations, could bo
massed at any desirable point, Until same
Blmple and efficacious method of raising’ &
competent and homogeneous force Is pat in
operation, we shall be, in a military point of

mountains for safety ore tracked by those des
plcable minions of treason -who seize the first
opportunity to let the rebels know where
they can make a haul. Tbe Copperheads utter
their sentiments openly and boldly, and al
most invite the rebels to partake of their hos

streets and eojoy all the privileges ofloyul cit

do not meet with like Javor from all the reb
els, When Jenkins was at Chambersburgh he
engaged in conversation with a Union man.
As'the former was speaking a Copperhead
stepped up, made himself and his sentiments
known, and very obligingly offered to impart
any information which might be desired. Jen
fctns glanced at him f#r a moment, and then,
with an expression of countenance that nearly
frightened the skulking vagabond out of his
wits, ordered him to leave his presence, re
marking that if he had him safe on the other

Incidents Connected wltlh the Eloetlon
oriTlombcrß ortho Corps Loslsladf-
Pctlilona Against the Sotarn of
Government Candidates*
[Prom the New York Evening Post]
The latest news from Paris indicates that
many petitions against the return of govern
ment candidates, on the ground of illegal acta
committed by Persigny’s agents, will occupy
the attention of the new French Chamber A
defeated opposition candidate, M. Alfred Pe
reira, makes a public statement to the effect
that on the day of the election the Mayor and
juards spread the false report that he had
)een arrested on the previous Friday for hav
ing attacked the Hotel de YUle of Orleans, at
the head of lour or five hundred rioters; that
he was then in prisdn; and that Orleans was
was in a state of siege. An article of the pre
fectonal journal, Le Journal du Loirtt , accred
iting these falsehoods,wa» publicly read aloud
in the streets. IT. Pereira proposes to prove
these facts to the Corps Legtalatif, and de
mand that the election of the government can
didate, the Duke of Tarente, shall bo declared
null and void.
Another dishonorable expedient of Persi"-
ny occurred in the case of AL do Montalem
bert who was a candidate at St. Brleuc, in the
department of the Cotes da Nord, as weU os
at Cesancon, in the Doubs. The Bishop of
St. Brieuc revoked the privilege of printing
for the diocese from the person In whose
family it had been forever two hundred years,
merely because he had printed M. de Mouta
lembert’s voting tickets; and at the doors of
the voting places at Besancon police agents in
uniform were openly distributing voting tick
ets for the official candidates, and in several
communes of the same district anonymous
placards in manuscript were posted up on •
the walls. One of them was to this effect:
“ Electors: By voting for M; de Hontalem
hert you vote for the ignorance of your chil
dren. for tbe old regime with all its abuses, for
war in Italy, lor salt at five sous the pound,
for cheese at thirty francs the hundred and
finally, for the enemy of the government.’* 1
Nevertheless, de Montalembert and bia
brother-in-law, IT. de Merode, had twenty
thousand votes.
. In the Sixth District of Paris a second bal
lot is to take place; no candidate out of seven
•who appeared having received the requisite
number of votes. Mr. Faersalt, editor ot the
Opinion Xa(ionaU y obtained the highest num
ber, and next to him was M. Cochin, author
of the “Resultsof Slavery,” and the “Results
of Emancipation.” Cochin is supported by
the Clerical and Legitimist sections of the
Fanboirg St. Germain, M. Guerauit by the
Democratic party of the same district: and it
remains to be seen whether the former will
give their second vetc to the opposition can
didate rather than to the official contestant.
In the departments there are ten or eleven
cases of a similar kind, which will be decided
by a second ballot; and among the official can
didates there are about twenty-two whose
elections are vitated for not having taken the
oaths previous to nomination, owing to the
Prefects having fonrotten,* or thinking it un
necessary, to administer it to menwhoaechict,
if not whose only recommendation wasthsir
official character.
In the department of the Correze, the
Major, Count Maurice de Saint Perdeui, who
received orders in 1857 to make his people
vote for 2d. de Jouvenel, was this year la
etrncted to prevent the election of the same
candidate; bat Persigny, tearing that the
Mayor would not tarn his coat with sufficient
celerity, sent a gendarme to arrest him at three
9, dock in the morning on the day before the
election. He was informed that he was sus
pended and must leave his assistant to pre
side at the electoral bureau. “Very well ’*
said the count. “But,” added the gendarme,
lam ordered not to lose sight of you until
the elections are over.” Thereupon the sus
>ended Mayor resigned his office in the fol
lowing letter:
“Monsieur le Sous-prefet—l thank you for
the honorable position yen have carved out
for me by suspending me duringthis election.
.of- •bowing my .gfatitude, be ffood
enough to ask the prefect to accept my resig
nation. I have the honor, etc.,-
“Copwt Maurice de Sxltt Paudocx.
‘ Chateau de St. Pardonx, June 2,1863.“
Mr. Ilavin, who has now a prominent posi
tion as the only roan in France who has ob
tained the honors of a double return, writes as
follows in the Sieele:
It is idle to attempt to detract Irom the im
portance of the Paris elections by setting off
against them the large government majority
m the provinces. Everybody knows that if the
country electors had had the same resources
as those of Paris—if they had been free to meet
together and consult, and if they had had influ
ential journals for organs, tho result would
have been very different Why. who docs not
know the great prestige of authority in tho
country districts? Who does not know that
In certain circumscriptions the electors thinly
scattered overalcngth of sometime# as much
as 140 kilometres, can hold no communication
with each other for any useful electoral pur
pose? Who does not know the pressure of
every kind that is cxerclsedhpoathem?
