MONDAY, JULY 0, 1803.
The daily increasing dimensions of our
navy, whiiffi are recorded yearly in the
Naval Register render a semi-annual state
ment of its condition interesting and use
ful A London paper recently stated that
although there are now over 400 ships in
the United States Navy, not 50 of them
were built for war purposes. „ So far is this
from being true, It Is a fact that since the
war broke out, nearly 150 vessels have
been constructed expressly as mcn-of-war,
and of these nearly fifty, are Iron-dads.
Many of the purchased steamers are now
as formidable as navy-built craft. There
are, all told, about 530 vessels now’ regis
tered on the books of the Department, all
being purchased save the following:
Screw sloops
Addle wheel steamers,
liou-clad steamers
Sailing chips.
“The Constitution as it Is."
Oce of the resolutions of the Ohio Peace
State Convention, is as follows:
IS. That whenever It becomes practicable
to obtain a Convention of all or three-fourths
• of tbe States, such body should be convened
for the purpose of proposing such amend
ments to the Federal Constitution as erperi
. cnee has proved to be necessary to maintain
that instrument in the spirit and meaning In
tended by its founders, and to provide against
* future convulsions and wars.
“ The Constitution as it is,” as the Cop-
peiheads have phrased their catch fool motto,
means the Constitution with “modem im
provements”—said “improvements” being
of the quality proposed in Congress two wiur
ten ago by the great leader of Copperhead
Democracy, “Exiled Vallandlgbam.” The
“amendments” contemplated in the above
•resolutions are undoubtedly the ones drafted
and recommended -by Vailandigham, among
Which was the following, to legalize secession
and the breaking up of the Union:
. Noßtate shall secede without the consent
ot the Legislatures of all the States of the
•section to which the State proposing to secede
belongs. The President shall have power to
adjust with seceding States oil questions aria-
Ingby reason of . their, secession; but the
terms of adjustment shall be submitted
to the Congress lor their approval before the
same shall be valid.
The Ohio Peace fketion should amend their
old motto, to read, “.The Constitution as it
is to be,” when the rebels tell what “ amend
ments” are .“necessary” "to “provide
against future convulsions and wars,” lifr*

- Jr ati —Who wi re the people who drew
Jicu. the fountains at its source—Tlirongh
what extent of country did it traverse—Occu
pied by what people, with what manners, cus
toms, language—remained unanswered from
century to century. It was, perhaps, the
most familiar of all foreign rivers to the
Greeks and Homans, and the most attractive
to their imaginations. They speculated and
wrote about it, and Lucan actually hit upon
the secret of its periodical inundations, as we
shall presently show, in one of his poems.
But they were content to regardlt as a natural
curiosity, and a capital symbol for imagina
tive treatment, leaving it as mysterious as
they found it
From the very earliest records of it, we find
that it has been singularly attractive. Hero
dotus, the old father of history, who has been
more abused than any other man who has un
dertaken the thankless task of instructing his
fellow men, whose descriptions of ancient
countries and people and place? have been
laughed at as the most absurd inventions of
Greek lying, but whom more modem science
and travel have avenged by attesting to the
literal and absolute veracity of bis statements
—has some, fine memorial lines about the
Kile but no solution of its mystery. Such a
bold. Indeed, bad this great geographical prob
lem upon the ancient mind, that Caesar, who
represented it in his time, declared that he
would gladly have let the civil war, in which
he was engaged, take care of its own issues if
he could discover its sources alone, or at the
head of one of his cohorts. But the Nile
would not succumb even to Caesar, but pre
served its secret through all the great revolu
tions of the ancient world, through all the
Bible history—through the dismemberment
of the Roman Empire, and the founding and
development pfmodem European civilization.
Whatever was attempted in the domains ot
science, and art, conquest, discovery and set
tlement, however impossible it looked, they
succeeded in achieving—hut thta Nile discov
ery was the one impossible thing. Catholicism
and feudalism had risen, and lallen; whilst
it kept its own connseL The dark ages had
been succeeded by the revival of learning, by
the printing press, and by a wonderful litera
ture. The human mind had asserted and main
tained Its freedom in politics and religion. Our
great America, with its great unspeakable des
tiny had been discovered—the United States
consolidated and built into a mighty republic
—all the rivers ou the continent traversed,
and their sources as well known as the site of
New York, or Chicago. The literature of
heaven had been written in stars and constella
tions—the laws of the heavenly bodies discov
ered—the movements of stars and vast san
tyetems, of comets and all siderial bodies,
knownand calculated to thefraction of a mo
ment—but still the old Nile hugged hlssecret,
as he rolled his laughing , waters over the
muddy shores, and would not give it up.
At the very moment when no one thought
of such athing, when all the world was ab
soibcd in the rebellion, when the African slave
in the South had his chains broken and was
now fighting for the Republic, when the con
clusion of the war would set him at liberty to.
go where he would, without a shackle on bis
hands or an overseer at his back—behold!
the glad tidings come to us across the water
that the sources of the Nile are discovered!
that Africa is open by water from the mouth
of the Nile to the equator, for the freed slaves
of the Sooth to visit, on a missionary tour
black harbingers of a white civilization, which
they would be better able to teach by prac
tice than all the Zion’s trumpets and penny
gospels for the heathen that our good mis
slohaiy societies could send amongst them.
Curious,indeed,ls all,this! Curious, and
•with a very striking providence in its black
eye. Look at it as you will, somehow or
other that providential look Hashes out of it.
Two officers belonging to the Indian ser
vice ot Great Britain, by name Captains Speke
and Grant, have traced the White Nile from
its source at the equator north. It issues
from a lake, the northern boundary of which
is precisely on tbe equator, but fed by streams
springing in nearly four degrees south latj-'
tude—the lake, Victoria Nyanza, from which
it springs in a cataract, a few miles below the
v lake} twelve feet high and four hundred and
fifty feet in width—tie first of that long serle
of rapids, which cause a total difference o
about six thousand feet, or more than a mile
in height, between the source of the river and
the mouth of the Delta at Alexandria. The
inundation, as Lucan prophesied, is not caused
by tbe melting snows of Spring, but by. the
ruins produced by the double passage of the
sun across the equator, which flood the great
lake from which it is principally derived, and
all the surrounding country, and send down
the summer torrents to fertilize the plains of
The Lake Victoria Nyanza is prob
ably about as large as Lake Mich
igan, a great inland sea, almost as
deep as the ocean, it varies in depth from
seven to fifteen feet. It is Intersected con
stantly by “rush drains,” or stagnant water
courses, draining the neighboring lands, which
were formerly under water. Thu hills which
separate this lake from .two more southerly
lakes, aie the famous Mountains of the Moon,
10 which popular tradition has always pointed
as the source of the Nile. The hills, however,
ore nofshow mountains. ,
’ The reason why the Nile is so characteristic
in the unity of it^,waters, and so' unlike all
other African rivers,—it having no outlet for
seventeen hundred miles—is owing to the fact
that the-flanking higher grounds,! ranging
from North to South, do not afford, as else
where, lateral valleys which lead to the sea.

enough. But they are about as barbarous os
the rest of the savage tribes of Africa, and
present no new ethnological features. They
aie remarkable for the number of their wives
however,.a king-in those parts having, and
holding, from three to four thousand. They
fat their women and children until they can
not stand, and thisis considered a great gen
tility I
-Thus, at last, is solved the great riddle
which, from before the lime of Pharoab, has
troubled and perplexed the world. The sour
ces of the mighty- stream held, mall proba
bility, by the ancestors of the same barbarous
race who now occupy the country, and wash
in its waters—connecting them by this visible
link, with tbe events and circumstances of the
great civilized world, of which they, and all
their forbears, for thousands of years have
been, and are, utterly ignorant ‘ Whilst all
the great marvels of civilization have been
developing themselves; whilst .the modem
world has been painfully struggling for lib
erty, and growing in the arts of warj and
peace, with the printing press and the steam
engine, and electric telegraph, for evangels
and ministers, these poor savages at the other
end of the river line have been steeped in an
the vices of Ignorance and heathenism.
And now that the geography of Africa is
opened, God has set free tbe Southern slaves"
to act as his missionaries and ministers, and
carry to their black brethren in those be

State and nation in the ordinary methods, bat has
developed a capacity folly equal to the emergen

words burning from a pare patriot's heart, and

Como, July 1,1808,

vicinity of Cairo, are not yet dead and buried
with the defunct past. If they arc, some
Vandal, who should know enough to let
11 well” alone, has been trying very hard to
resuscitate these days, and he ha* almost suc
ceeded, else, amino Judge*
Some refugees from the vicinity of Moscow,
Tenn., were brought to this place from Mem
phis upon the steamer Jessee K. Bell, a day
or two since. There were eleven in family—
parents and nine children. The youngest
child was but little past two years of age, and
was suffering from sickness, and supposed to
be dying, when the inhuman officers of the
boat damped the refugees, as they would as
many mules, and left them upon the levee to
dieor not to die, Just as good or ill luck might
serve them. To place the conduct of the offi
cers of the Bell in a proper light, the refugees
say, that up to yesterday noon, from the mo
ment they left Memphis, none of them bad
tasted food. Yet they must have paid tbelr
passage upon the boat. And even if they bad
not, tbe common decencies of life, the com
mon charities of a Christian country, should
have prompted some one upon the boat to
see tbat these people did not starve. But the
refugees say they did noteat during the pas
sage, conjoining two days. -
Upon tbe levee, where tbe Bell had placed
them*. ,lhe family remained all No
shelter, no friend, nothing to eat, and only
‘the warm and filthy river water to quench
their thirst. Yesterday morning a man by the -
name of Hill, who, by his actions, has shown
that he has a heart in Ms breast asblgasa
mountain, found tbefamlly in their desolation.
Mr. Hill is an Express messenger, connect
ed with Adam’s company. He visited the
office and quickly raised a small sum of mon
ey for the purchased them; tickets
for Jonesboro; where they wanted to go, and
comlugto the Bt. Charles Hotel secured pro
visions enough to serve them until the jour
ney was performed. Besides, Mr. Partridge,
the manager of the Express here, gaye them
a car, into which the family was removed,
and under the shelter of which it could be
protected from the weather. Mr. Hill -and
some other citizens afterward raised by sub
scriptions of citlzena a further sum of money
to be.used upon occasion. The whole family
were until this utterly dejected. They had
not, apparently, the intellect vouchsafed to
common work-hard negroes. But sympathy
brightened them somewhat, and they were
led to speak more cheerfully and look hope
fully upon what the future had in store for
Later at night it was learned tbat the young
est child bad succumbed to sickness, starve
\tion, exposure and weariness incident to per
forming so long a journey, and its little spir
its bad gone from this world to taste joy
ineffiable in that above. 1 The parents were
heart-stricken. . Tnrough tbe kindness of
these who had previously aidedthem, suitable
burial clothes and a coffin were secured for
tbe dead infant, and it was decently buried.
Tbe remainder of tbe refugees went north on
tbe Central road this morning, tbe father and
an elder son designing to seek work upon a
farm to enable them to keep the remainder of
the family from want.
Some system should at once be inaugurated
by thcxnilitaryautborities,orthe civil process,
for the care of these refugees, great numbers
of whom may be naturally expected to seek
shelter at tbe North, as fast as their country
is desolated by war and theirmrans of obtain
ing supplies at home cut off. We take care of
the colored race. Whv not take care of our
white brethren? Their sons and fathers are
fighting in tbe Union army. Are they not
desert lug of tbe care oi tire country whose
Constitution and existence they are giving
their, lives—or tbe lives of those as dear to
them as life—to ’ support ? A system must
soon be Inaugurated. Why not now?
a body of men I have heretofore neglected
to mention, are certainly deserving of espe
cial notice. They have, to the number of
seventy-five or more, been stationed at Cairo,
for tLe purpose of performing guard duty
for • the navy, for some months post.
Their drill Is excellent Tbeir neat, uniform,
cleanly appearance, and orderly behavior on
all occasions, form a great contrast when pre
sented beside the volunteer infinity, or for
that matter beside the regular Infantry of ’he
0.8. service.. Tbe.duty these men perform
is mostly upon tbe naval wharf-boat. They
protect the stores and keep constant guard,
day and night, over a large and valuable prop
erty.- They are also used upon all prize
steamers taken possession of by tbe Govern
ment. Tbeir ranksbelug thin the duty is on
erous. ’
Die present officers of the Marino corps, lo
cated here are:
Captain.—ll. H. Klntzlng.
First Lieut.—Frank ilnnroe.
Second L'eut.—Frank l. Church,
Second Lieut—C. H Humphrey,
Lieut. Church is the son of your old and re
spected citizen, Win. L. Church, and a young
officer of great promise. Chicago. may wen
feel a pride in the position occupied by the
gentleman ‘mentioned. He is au. attentive,
htudent —and a sober 'soldier—which. Is more
than can be said of many of tbe military—or
tbe representatives oi the civilians—of Cairo
at the present day.
The remaining officers of the Marine Corps
have been long In the service, and are gentle
men of experience and polish. One -of the
finest sights the.people oithiscltynre usually
treated to. Is a review of the Marine Corps.
Their uniforms, upon such gala occasions, ap
proach the gaudy. Tbeir plumes, epaulettes,
and well whitened belts and cartridge boxes;
tbeir glistening muskets, in which one can at
all times see the reflection of one’s lace, as In
a mirror; tbeir tall,'felt 'bats, with the old
- fashioned xlzers; tbeir nicely blacked shoes,
glistening like a “ nigger’s heel” in the sun;
their stately tread aha regular motion in per
forming tbeir evolutions of Hardee, all seem
to stamp them as soldiers, and well drilled,
fine looking ones, at tbat. They are an useful
and ornamental Institution. , T. H. W..
Mr. Brough*
. On Saturday night last the neighbors of this
gallant and eloquent standard bearer of the
Union party of Ohio (be lives in Cleveland),
to the number of more than a thousand, In
cluding many ladies in carriages, gave him a
serenade. A huge carriage, filled with hand
some' young ladles! of fine musical tal
ent, formed an interesting part of the proces
slou, and sung, opposite Mr. Brough’s resi
dence, several patriotic, songs, among the
restj “Bally round the flag, boys,” which had
a splendid effect. *
In response to repealed calls, that gentle
man appeared, and made , a spirited speech.
We make a brief extract:
The South has bben long plotting itho trea
son that has at length resulted in armed re
bellion. For twenty-five years they bad been
plotting* whilst tbe North had .been wholly
engrossed with commerce aud the arts of
peace. Tl.cn. when they were ripe for rebel
lion, they struck us down when we were de
fenceless. When they had stolen the funds,
dispersed the uavj , weakened the army, and
rendered the Government, powerless, the
blow was struck, and' rebellion, armed and
defiant, leaped into existence.- The quarrel
was not of our making. ..They have forced
the Issue on us, and now we must either
it out, or submit to ah Inglorious peace.
There is no middle course; He who is not
with the Government in the prosecution of
the war is either on open, rebel himselfl or Is
a sympathizer with the rebellion. -
Referring to the Democratic - platform ad
opted at Columbus, hehald'it contained reso
lutions against everything-but one; There
was none agalust tbe authors of the rebellion,
or those who are engaged in carrying it on.
Not a word against them, but all against
those In the North who are seeking to nut
the rebellion down. , l .
Those so-called Democrats claim that they
have a right to oppose the Government.
Granted; and so had the Tories of the revo
. lutlon and the Hartford Conventlonlsts of the
war of 1812. They claimed a right to oppose
the Government, and did so, but the opinion
of all mankind bad set the mark of infamy bn
lh« m as plain as the Almighty had set a marie’
on the brow of the first murderer, that men
may know them. Let those whoarc now hesi
tating what course to take, beware of joining
the enemies of the Government now, for as
surely as limegoes on, onr children and chil-
children will point to the braad of
shame on their brows, even as we now point
to the marks ot infamy on the “peace” men
of the past.
Alluding to the.Democratic meeting In the
city a few evenings since, he said, he regret
ted the false position bn, which the intense
party feelings of Judge Thurman had placed
him. He referred to Judge Thurman’s asser
tion tlmt if the staus of the slaves were re
stored peace could be attained It cannot be
done. A dozen Fugitive Slave Laws might
be restored or enacted, hot there wonld be no
Ecacc, Even after the election of Abraham
incoln- there was a Fueive Slave Law in
existence, and it was. enforced In this very
city, and In other places. Bat yet the rebel
lion broke oat and increased in extent They
cared nothing abont the Fugitive Slava Law,
or any such enactments.
The facts must he recognized that this war
cannot he closed, unless the evil of political
slavery is eradicated. It must be eradicated,
or there will be more wars'. It is absurd—it
would be wickedness, to patch up any peace
that does not remove the cause of the calami- :
ties of the war. He would frankly confess that
he had been reluctant to admit this fact. For
two years he had.pondered the subject, and
had ■at last been reluctantly convinced that
slavery cannot exist in one section of the
country, and freedom in the other. Bat he
was now convinced of it; The two are incom
patible, and one or the other must be annihi
lated before there could be any lasting peaca

all the arms in the, possession ot the-passen

The Campaign of tee and
what he Intendsto Do.
[From theßichmond Enquirer, June 20.]
People in civil life cannot pretend to criti
cise, in its present stage, a grand campaign
such as that now entered upon by our army
of Northern Virginia. We do not so much as
know its object; and therefore still less can
we pronounce on the suitableness of the'
means. Some of the Confederate newspapers
write as if they had expected the cavalry ad
vance into Pennsylvania to have been at-once
let loose upon a general plundering expedi
tion. Bat independently of the fact that
nothing desorganlzes troopsand renders them
useless like indiscriminate plunder, it is well
to recollect that It may be absolutely neces
sary to the general plan to keep that cavalry
force well in hand so as to coyer other
movements of the main body. On the great
chessboard of war there Is a mighty game in
progress j and neither we at home, nor Hook
er, the opposite player himself, has yet di
vined the nature of General Lee’s combina
tions. It is true that Confederates owe no
consideration or forbearance.to their enemies.
It is true, further, that our generals owe it to
their own people to visit a terrible devasta
tion and havoc upon the enemy’s country,
whenever they have the means in their hands
to do so effectually, and on a grand scale
But this is not yet the case. Qen. Hooker,
with a vast army, is still to be disposed of,
and every movement of each command must
doubtless, be calculated with a view to this
needful preliminary business. It may- bo
needful even to deceive the enemy as to the
ultimate object of the Confederate General,
by adopting the very course complained of—
that is, fo» bearing from plunder now, on the
;very threshold of the expedition. In order
to do the business well and thoroughly the
just retaliation (which we demand and the
foe expects) must be organized and regulated
as deliberately' as any other • military move
ment, and it might be fatal to the whole cam
paign if Jenkins’ cavalry were.now permitted
to load themselves with plunder, and so, for;
the sake of the paltry booty of Chambers
burg, miss perhaps the splendid prize of Phil
udelpbiaor the crashing blow.at the enemy’s
Lead in Washington.
These are some of the considerations which
should make us all take patiently, for the pre
sent, the well-pleased announcements made
hi Yankee papers about private property
being hitherto respected and payment made
in Confederate bills. Certainly if the expedi
tion of Gen. Lee were to end so—if, at the
very moment when hordes of Yankee brig
ands are burning and plunderingfarand wide
over our country, not only stealing all they
can lay their hands upon, but letting loose
bands of negroes with bayonets In one hand
and torches in the other, to the work of in
discriminate outrage and devastation, our
army in Pennsylvania were to march through
tbe country just as if it were our
own; asking permission of; Dutch fla
mers to draw water at their .wells; press
ing their custom on the smiling storekeepers,
and pajing them in the best and only kind
of money we ever see at home; and should
.return so, amid the compliments of Pennsyl
vanians, and their heartily expressed wishes
soon to see again among them such courteous'
and liberal gentlemen'—in that unheard of and
unsnpposable case, the .whole world would
laugh us to scorn: it would be sold to amount
to an admission that we do indeed feel our
selves to be in unjustifiable rebellion, and
have no right to presume to deal with our
enemies as they may deal with us. It would
be giving up the cause; formally surrender
ing our people throughout every State to pil
lage and oppression; inviting a continuance,
and aggravation of all the evils ol Invasion,
and virtually offering the necks of our ring
leaders to lie hangman.
This is so horrible to think of, that we
may safely conclude it is not the intention of
the great chieftain to whom so mighty a task
has been entrusted by the President, and who
has np to this day discharged his task so
nobly, rHis operations for the present we
take to be wholly strategical.. He miy pur
posely forbear to alarm the hostile popula
tions, and give them warning to run off their
herds and flocks, so os to leave the country
waste before;him, until, Hooker once well
cleared out of his path, he can . throw the
whole. Confederate army into Pennsylvania,
wide winged, far stretching, in one vast com
bined movement, enveloping Washington on
the one side, Harrisburg on the other, and so
forward, forward, till our red battle flag re
flects itself in the Delaware.
Even in this latter case-even if Gen. Leo
designs to moke Pennsylvania the seat of
war, and to make the war support, tbe war,
wc presume that he would not give hie troops
a general license to pillage. He would proba
bly order each Major- General to coll before
him tbe Sheriff of each county, on his lino of
march, and impose npon each a certain provi-*
sion—and no. small provision—of beeves,
horses; clothing, silver and gold; all to be de
.livercd at given point*, at given hours, with
the alternative of making the defaulting

We are in possession of some flicts obtained
from a plime letter of a late date, to a gentle
man in Richmond, relative to the operations
of onr advance army.
We surprised oapiaroJ-Mariy.
'Ms entire force, only excepting those wbo
availed themselves of the example set by their
commander, of an ignominious desertion of
their comraces in battle.
We captured four thousand seven hundred
men, one hundred and nine officers, thirty
cannons, two hundred and fifty wagons, four
hundred horses, twenty ambulances, and all
the public and private baggage, sutlers’
goods, &c, Not a wheel escaped. Oar men
deserve all our country can award them.
The. people say that Milroy went off In cltl-'
zent’ clothes; he left Winchester the evening
before the assault. He who does that as a
commander will do anything disgraceful. -
The Yankees are in a terriblo state of com
motion; they cannot imagine what'the rebels
.are about. Stuart has whipped their cavalry
everyday,and sometimes twice a day, ever
since he left Culpepper. He has captured-five
or six hundred prisoners. Mbsohy caught
Hooker’s aid with letters of Instruction to
their cavalry commander. They showed that
Hooker was very much puzzled. Imbodeu
has done millions of dollars’ worth of damage
at Cumberland, Md. Ho has destroyed all
the workshops and machinery, locomotives,
cars, &c, there. Every bridge from the Little
Capon river, lor some distance west .of Cum
berland, is completely destroyed.. The im
mense tunnel is destroyed, and the u great
iron bridge” knocked all to pieces; eleven
• shots from a 13-inch rifled gun brought the
whole structure—four hundred feet of mag
nificence—into the water. This is one ol the
worst blows we have lately given them.
Major White has broken the railroad be
tween Harper’s Ferry aud the Point of Bocks.
He burned one wagon train, but did not get
the horses.
Milroy is on the Maryland Heights. He has
no communication with any one, and it is
probable no one is desirous of baying any
with him.
Our destruction of railroad property rather
outdoes the grand Stoueman raid and the
email work of damage on the Central railroad.
A report i cached the city, by tbe Freder
icksburg train last evening to the effect that a
raid was anticipated at Gordonsvillc, although,
nothing was said of such a movement by tlie
passengers from Gordonsville on the Central.
Possibly some of the citizens may apprehend
scme such dash on the part of the enemy; but
we are quite sure that their fears are never re

The monitor Torpedo;
[From the N. T, Tribune, July L]
Our notice of the Atlanta’s torpedo has
brought out some • very interesting informa
tion relating to the Monitor torpedoes. These
machines, we find, are very different things
from the rebel powder bag, with its sixty
pounds of powder stuck at the eud of a thirty
foot pole. The Monitor torpedo consists of
a monster shell, thirty feet long, weighing up
wards of 6,000 ponods, with a charge of 700
pounds of powder. By means of a raft—tbo
“devil”—these shells are pushed.some fifty
feet ahead of the Monitor, suspended at any
desirable depth.
We shall know in good time how the
rebels succeed in obstructing the passage of
rheMpnitors when armed with these terrible
shells, the explosion of which will resemble
an earthquake under water. It appears that
ihe naval officers were afraid of employing
tbe potent means placed at their disposal lor
clearing Charleston harbor of obstructions
for fear the explosion of the shells would act
backwards on their vessels. As might-be
supposed, the constructorlmsguarded against
such an occurrence.
Tho Secretary of the Nary,' "with a view of
removing all doubts on this point, ordered a
trial to be made last winter with one of the
rafts, the very “devil” afterwards towed to
Port Royal; The trial proved eminently satis
factory, for although the explosion of the shell
pushed up a mountain of water fifty feet high
above the surface of the Hudson, near the head
of the raft, not the slightest injury was sustain
ed by the latter. The perfect preservation of
slender pieces of woodattached under the raft
[•roved beyond a doubt that the effect of the
explosion was, as had been designed, in the
forwarddireclion only. This singular feature
of the Monitor torpedo we are not at liberty
to describe. . What we' have stated. on the
subject can do no harm, as it is known.at
Richmond as well as at Washington. So also
is the fact that a couple of shiploads of these
nnder-water pioneers are now at hand where
their good services are most needed. We
therefore} acquit Mr. Welles on the charge of
wont of enterprise as' regards the torpedoes.
But Is it not time to order Admiral Dahlgren
to put steam np on the Monitors and pash the
torpedoes past Sumter up against those rebel
obstructions? . . “

very Utile idea how wanton,-reckless and
criminal the conduct of some persons h**

of a report made to the Quartermaster Gen

and Lieutenant' Henry Brown, Assistant
Inspector, Department of the Cumberland,
who were, by order of , Gen, Boyle, appointed
a Board of Survey to inspect at this city new
horses received and branded/ *‘tl. S.’* at
Springfield and Chicago.lllinois; "Cincinnati,
Ohio; and Detroit and Coldwater, Michigan.
A lot of three hundred and fifteen, received
from Capt. Lee, at Coldwater, contained sev
enteen blind or one eye, twelve bUnd of both

heaves and wind-broken; out or the whole
three hundred and fifteen, the Board rejected
- two hundred and eleven, or two-thirds of
the'entire number! -; The best horses ex
amined have been received from Capt.
Potter at Chicago; .out of two hundred and
seventy-five, only sixty-two were rejected.
Those received about a month since from
Captain Dennison, at Cincinnati, were of the
worst kiud. • Out of seven hundred and fifty
mules, but five were accepted, and the horses
were rejected in about the same proportion.
This lot seems to have cleared the vicinity of
Cincinnati of oil Its bad stock, for nothing
has since been sent from' that’ quarter. We
suppose a person wonting to buy a horse
there now could moke his bargain blindfold,
as the markethas been raked and scraped for
all the unsound animals.
These facts are discreditable to all con
cerned; to the-contractors who buy and to
the officers who are so careless in their first

.transferred,from the low race.coarse and
horse market, to the supply of onr army la
its now most important arm. There are at
present at Oakland, near this city, over fifteen

frigh'fnl exposure of the rapacity ami crimi
nality of contractors, we understand that the
horses and mules furnished at this point are
tbe best that have been received by the Gov
ernment. ' What herds' of broken down ani
mals' must -have been offered In
other localities 1 While the 1 inter
ests of the country and safety of the army
are thus endangered, it is of the.flrst import

horses.. No wonder that we cannot; mount
cavalry’.fast enough,ior that when mounted,
the animals do not last more than two or
three months. . One.reginent at Nashville
hod three fresh supplies since Christmas,
and how many -more have been under the
same necessity we can’t tell, bat It is probable
that all tbe regiments which have been actively
engaged ore in the same coneltion. When
.we reflect upon these matters we
cannot wonder that the first i Napo
leon issued such stringent orders for
the punishment of dishonest contractors,
but we arc surprised that more of that class
of pnblic enemies have not been bronght to
account for their delinquencies. The officers
who constitute the Board of Survey ’at this
post Lave performed their duty in the most
exemplary manner, and while they are charg
ed with the inspection,- they will take care
that the Government Is subjected to no gigan
tic. swindles. But this does not furnish
the entire necessary 'remedy. When ani
mals are wanted, and are iormmled
from remote places, out military commanders
should be able to depend confidently npohthe
pioper supply, IT they are rejected,: the
Government loses nothing in a pecuniary
point of view, bat the service is Inconven-.
lenccdand perhaps endangered by the delay,
which is tbe result of having to’ wait; far the
receipt of another lot and a new inspection.
He who can devise a remedy for these gross
efforts at swindling will be regarded as a pub
lic benefactor, and. popular, opinion will con
firm the propriety of any punishment, • how
ever rigid, which may be awarded to the ras
cally swindlers.
How General Kirkpatrick was Hecov
etfed. •
[Correspondence of the Evening Post.]
Washington, June 29,1863;
The company in which General Kirkpatrick
was engaging the rebels at Aldle was over
borne by their superior mass, and he was left
a prisoner in their hands. - Captain Nicholas
Kallcck Mann, of Milton, Ulster county,
'New York, was in command of a squadron of
cavalry, composed of two companies, and
was u witness of this misfortune. Hissquad
’ ron itself hesitated, wavered, givln< r

horse. He galloped to the rear, and by great
exertion succeeded In stopping their back
ward-movement,' and in restoring order to
their ranks. Again be was at their head-fac
ing the foe; and waving his sword over his
head, he shonte’d “Men, are you heroes or are
you cowards? follow me—charge I” With
out waiting to look whether a single man
would obey the order, he spurred ms horse
to an instant gallop and plunged alone npon

left ris ho dashed forward. The squadron
could not hesitate at sach a brave sight, but
with one Impulse shouted and followed their
leader—too late to save him, for his ardor bad -
-given him a considerable start; but they
broke through, rode over, and cut down the
rebel ranks with an irresistible plunge. Geu-
Kirkpatnck was released. The artillery camo
up with a rush, and poured in the canister
and grape. Flight was* established on one
side, and pursuit on the other. To use the
expression of one of the soldiers: “Those
who escaped the artillery were hazed down
with the sabre.” One mau, a short and slen
der Frenchman, named Plnot, or pronounced
with that spelling, killed live with his own-,
band, and then fed himself. Ho was said to
be a recent emigrant from his own country,
•The.slangbterln this charge was Two rebels to
one Colon soldier. . - '
Captain-Maun bad been struck by a sabre
and unhorsed. : At tbe : some moment his
hoisc was killed. He lay on the ground help
less, but this did not prevent the rebels shoot
ing him, as he fell completely within their
ranks. A plstol ball was shot through his
back under the left shoulder-blade, making the
circuit of his ribs inside, and lodging between
two ribs in front, near the nipple, whence It
was skillfully extracted by the surgeon sev
eral days after. That it‘ escaped his heart is
scarcely less than a miracle. He now lies in
the Emory. Hospital, a mile or more from
.Washington,'and has such use of his arms os
to indicate, with the healthy suppuration of
the wound, a speedy recovery. Indeed, he is
aheady thinking of his saddle, and says ho
will be in it again in a few weeks. The cat
on his face extends from the cheek-bone uu-*
der.bis right eye to the muscle of the neck
across the angle of the jaw. It Is already in ‘
an advanced healing state.
Capt. Mann is a Quaker, over six feet high,
and “In for the war.” He has two cousins
of the same persuasion in the same cavalry,
and has himself passed through many fights,
until now ■ without injury. ■ No one - would
suppose, to hear them conversing in the gen
tle “thee and ,lhou” language, that there is
underneath such a noble, fearless and resolute
military spirit. But the Qaakers, when they
do fight, snow a’degree of pluck that entitles
them to rank with the bravest soldiers of any
time or country—the Cromwellian.
As I sat talking with the captain on Satur
day, I asked him who those jovial fellows
were on tho opposite bed playing dominoes.
He answered that they were his men. One
had had his leg amputated, and the other was
nursing a mangled look The former was
from Indiana, a thorough Republican and
loyalist, although his father and a brother are
soldiers in the rebel army. -

Dr. Keeler.
Editors Chicago Tribune:
Palatine, - July 2,18G3.
Of the many men from our town, who have
distinguished themselves In this war, allow
me to call your attention to onr worthy citi
zen,; Dr. LeavensJ. Heeler.
At the commencement of the war, Dr. Hee
ler raised a company in onr town—was elect
ed Captain, and tendered the company to the
Government. .
Thecompany not being received, was dis
banded ; and the doctor, being determined to
serve his country in some capacity, accepted
the appointment oi 2d Lieutenant in what Is
now the famous 19th Illinois, then command
ed by the - gallant'Tnrchin, and served-all
through the Missouri campaign. He was of*
terwards detailed by Gem Buell to take charge
ol tbe commissary department at Louisville,
Kentucky, which position he held with honor
to bimseli and credit to the Government
nntiT the - sth of October last, when
he - was appointed surgeon of' the Oth
Kentucky: cavalry. The health of the men,
unit the number reporting for duty daily,
shows with what ability and bow faithfnHy rq
has performed his duty,as Surgeon. i •
It is now more than two years since the
doctor entered the service, but he has never
asked for a furlough, and has not lefc his post
of duty fora single day.
It is but justice to say , that, had all men
who have entered the army remained at their
post as long, pud served their country as
faithfully as X)r. Keeler has, our army would
now be full, and this infernal rebellion crashed.
May God give ns more men like Dr. Keeler,'
is the wish of an old patient of the 'doctors.
. Indian State of Jtodiana has made a
default In the_payment oi the half-yearly in
terest which fell due on her public debt. This
was contrived and brought about by her Cop
perhead State officers, who were determined
to punish somebody for the refusal of the He
publcan minority of her last Legislature to
allow her to be dragged into the-slough of
Yallandighamism.. There was not the small
est occasion—there was not even the shadow
of excuse for this default—for the banking
house that does, the business of that State
here offered to pay the interest and look to
the State for future reimbursement, bat the
new State Agent would hot permit it. The
malignant and treasonable ‘hope that-- any se
rious shock. wiU thereby be given to public
credit generally, will hardly be gratified. -
Much confusion is created in army
correspondence by the use of the terms, right

use the terms in reference to the position of a
person descending the river. A correspondent
says this'technical sense of the term Is now
well settled among geographical societies arid
scientific travelers. This has been found the
only way to give it any definite meaning.

The departure of the-Imperial family for
Fontainebleau seems to have given the signal
for the general dispersion of the wealthy ami
fashionable families which follow in its wake,
and the verdant alleys of the Boiade Bou
logne have, as a consequence, lost almost all
those brilliantand dashing equipages of which
the assemblage is perhaps unequaledinany
other capital In Europe. Every one is gone—
or going-some to resume the same life. and
pleasures in ohothcriocality, os is the cose of
those favored with rinvitatiops to join the'
Court circle, at Fontainebleau"; others to re
cruit at the seaside or la the quiet of their
own chateaux; whilst others again, while re
cruiting their, health, at such fashionable
watering places as Vichy, Ems and Baden, by
no means give up' pleasure' and' amusements
Several series of invitations have been Is
sued fromFontalnebleau, where, among the
first batch invited, who arrived last week, fig
ure the mimes of the Prince of ’ Orange and
King Ferdinand, of Portugal, who isf how
cvcr, only,to pay a flying visit. Soon after
their Majesties* arrival a banquet was given
to the Prefect of the Department and civil
and military authorities of the town, in the
SoJle Henri H.i and a'series of fetes, among
which a grand stag hunt, to come off on Sat
urday next are in . contemplation. Private
letters from travelling friends who have lately
visited the Palace, speak of great improve
ments which have been effected there under
tbe Empress* immediate supervision. Two
galleries, and several smaller rooms adjoining
them, have been converted into two immense
saloons, called the Salon d'Ete and Salon Chi
noisj respectively fitted up, as their names de
note, with the utmost taste and elegance.
The Empress' Eugenie, in the coarse
of the spring paid . several vis
its to this«right regal residence, and
under the influence of her taste and the su
perintendence of Barbakienno, the well
known - collector of artistic bronzes of the
Boulevards, these two ncwsaloonsare perfect
specimens of originality and elegance. On
the Chinese Saloon especially the greatest
care has been bestowed in the choice of the
hangings, ceilings, ornaments and devices,
which were all selected by her Majesty herself
from the spoils and rare objects brought at
different times from China, Japan, Turkey,
and even Cochin China,’ so that the whole
offers not only a museum of the; produce of
the east, but also a reception room, fit to re
ceive tbe chief of the Celestial Empire him
self should he ever take it into his head to
visit the domains of his western brother.
Besides these interior, improvements, the
Empress has been amusing herself by getting
up, on the artificial waters and small rivers
Which ornament the grounds .of the Park, a
miniature flotilla, composed of two French
boats, an Egyptian felucca, the Venetian gon
dola, described for the benefit of yoar readers
in a former letter, anda Turkish Caique, just
arrived from Therapia. .Each of these boats
is manned by a native sailor, habited in the
costume .of bis. .country and profession.
"When the Emperor -and Empress arrived
last week at Fontainebleau, the whole equip
age of the fleet, consisting of five men, were
drawn ’ up - in the Courtyard to receive
'their Majesties, who were much pleased
at tbeirplcturesque appearance, the Emperor
smilingly complimenting his fiilr partner on
the success of hernewtoye. The two French
men* wore tho uniform of French men-of
wars-men, the Egyptian sailor was clothed in
a white beraous, with a turban on bis head
resembling that-worn by the Zouaves, and
the gondolier was dressed in a whole suite of
white, with a red scarf thrown over his shoul
der. The Turkish Caikdjf, who is a man of
fine proportions and handsome features, was
attired in a vest or waistcoat of deep red
color, full trow sera, fastened below the knee,
of a dark blue cloth, bordering upon black,
and-wore the national red flag on his hat; ha
is a Mussulman, and performs hUdqrotions
and ablutions in accordance with Mahomedon
observance. If the weather prove but propi
tious,- boating excursions and fetes on ik
waters are the orders of the day, and will di
versify the Imperial amusements to which the
noble forest adjoining the chateau'has hither
to afforded so muck scope.
Last Honrs or Admiral Foote."
From a sketch of the late Bear-Admiral
Foote, famished the New York Herald by a
person 'who was with him daring his illness,
we extract the following:
On Wednesday it became apparent to his
physicians that the Admiral could lire but a
short lime longer, and accordingly his family
were notified, and Captain Sanford, who Jus
been his constant attendant, went on to
Washington and laid the statement of the
Admiral's critical condition before the De
The Admiral now expressed himself freely
in relation to his own feelings. He slated that
he believed that he could live bat a little
while longer, as he had on the - previous eve
ning a premonition of his bodily decay. He
spoke firmly, and congratulated himself that
his preparations for eternity had been made
years ago,-and that now he had bat to await
the call of his Heavenly Master, who doeth all
things weQ.; Ills conversation from t&Ls time
forward was fall of sweet and glorions. ex
pressions, which have made a deep and mark
ed impression on all who were so fortunate
os to witness the ebbing hoars of the Christ
ian hero.
He gradually, sank from day to day, and was
buoyed up only by the aid of opiates and
stimulants.; at times he was conscious of the
presence ot his friends, and at other times the
stupor, which it was necessary to keep him
In, had so firm a hold upon him that it was
impossible to arouse him. He bore his ill- ’
ness and exerntiating pains with a Christian
fortitude-and meekness so characteristic of
the man. He was never heard to nrormnr at
anything, and his childlike obedience to the
instructions of his physicians was very
The writer was with the Admiral the major
poi tion of Friday night, when it was expected
that he coold not live from one hoar to
another. On entering his room he found it
dimly lighted wfh one gas burner, while on
the sideboard flickered a long candle, emble
matical of the scene before ns. • - ••.
On a large bed oh the south, side of the
room, bolstered up with pillows, lay the al
most lifeless form of that noble man. Around
the bedside were gathered Commander Sand*
ford, who was to have been his fleet captain;
Commander Simpson, who was to have com
manded the flagship; Dr. Reynolds, ilr. Stet
son, who was tenderly holding the Admiral's
head, Brooks, his faithful servant, and the
nurse. The Admiral was breathing very
strangely; his respiration was very regular,
but not in keeping with the usual manner.
He would take on the average ten breaths,
when respiration would entirely cease, at
times for over thirty seconds. This manner
of breathing was followed up during pearly
all the time we were in the room.
At about half-past IX o’clock Mrs. Reese,
his eldest daughter, arrived from Baltimore,
and was recognized by the Admiral, who lov
ingly threw his arms around her neck, and,
calling her by name, said he was glad to see
her, and then, closing his eyes, he fell back
exhausted and unconscious.
At Iwbnty minutes before 1 o’clock the col*
or of bis bice bad materially changed, bat
tbe clammy sweat stood out in big drops on
bis broad forebead, which seemed to be in a
fever beat. His extremities were cold, and;
his pulse gave out nothing bnt convulsive
throbs. It was thought be could live bat a
very few minutes, and Mrs. Reese was bqiu
moued to tbe room; bnt in a few minutes be
again seemed to rally, and be then bade £tir
to bold on some time longer..
Daring this time Captains Sandford and
Simpson, and Mr. Stetson seemed to vie with
each other intheirkind attentions to tbe form
ol one whom they so dearly loved. From the
boor lie was taken ill these gentlemen were
in constant attendance upon tbe Admiral, and
Mr. Stetsou.provided every comfort and lux
ury that money could purchase, for tbe good
of tbe Admiral. Night after night they
watched overblm, bnt in vain. He sank from'
hour to boar, at times rallying, bat always
weaker than before.
He was veiy anxious that Admiral Dupont
should be Informed that It was no effort or
intrigue on bis part ibat led him to obtain the
change in ,tbe command of the squadron.
These two officers have always been warm,
friends, and it sorrowed Admiral Foote to
think that be was tbe man appointed to re
lieve him. He said that, os tbe Government
bad ordered him to the performance of that
duty, he obeyed it as on order*.
At seven minutes past two* o’clock alight
convulsions were manifested, and tbe patient.
endeavored to change bis position. Tbe effort'
was a severe tax upon bis weak system, and
be fell over sideways; and otter remaining in
that position a short time, and apparently by
bis own desire, be was laid back npoa tbe pil
lows, when he seemed to be a trifle easier.
There was from that time no change In him
until the gray dawn of morning came streak
ing in through. tbe closed blinds.. He lay
there'as calm and complaisant as a man in tbe
bloom of life, aud bnt for the peculiar sound
of bis breathing one could have scarcely be
lieved tbafhe was passing away. It did not
seemlike the chamber ol death. His life had
. been so exemplary*his trust in God so sure
and steadfast, that one could but feel that this
was but tbejourney.to a better and a brighter
We left bis room long after daylight Lad
darkened tbe gaslights, and when tbe earlier
workingpeopie were hastening to their vari
ous stations, * lull of the pleasant thoughts
-which a review of bis life had brought Here
was aman who never entereda battle,bat pre
vious to undertaking the work, counted upon
the lives oi his officers and men; a man who
held himself responsible to God for every life
thrown away; a man'addicted to novice;
.pure in heart, living always a Godly life, and
one of the strong hopes of our naval service.
Ho was now fast going to meet that Judge
who would say, “well done, thou good and
faithful servant.”
Later Saturday morning he rapidly failed;
bnt after ten, o’clock he revived, and was
moderately comfortable during the middle of
tbe day. ' His eldest son arrived during the
day; and eat beside the bedside of his father
during tbe whole of tho day. During the
early part of tbe evening the Admiral seemed
to nave gained considerable streogtb, and at
times talked considerable; bat his mind still
wandered. Captain Bowan and* Surgeon
Williams were present,. and watched him.
with tenderness and care. TTta feet were
much warmer than they had -been for some
time, and. it was thought be might live
through tbe night.
From Saturday last up to tbe. present time,
tbe Admiral changed but little, save that be
has daily grown weaker, at times brightening
up, and in a few hours afterword sinking.' His
system was one of great strength, and tbe dis
ease bad a powerful will and strong constitu
tion.to master.
.-Yesterday, however, he failed rapidly, and
af’er sundown it was known that he could not
liye until midnight. The writer was present
at his deutli-hed, which was surrounded by his
lamlly, Cept. Sanford and the attending ser
At ten o’clock he sunk so rapidly that all
present felt that his time was. numbered by
minutes. In appearance he was much wasted
away, scarcely moving, and he looked calm
and peaceful. • ; _
At eighteen minutes past ten o’clock he
ceased .to breathe, and his spirit wiaged its
way to the God who gave It.'
In making the necessary preparations to r
filling so responsible a position he overtaxed
Lis frail system and has gone home to fight
no more. To say that he was universally be
loved conveys but a slight idea of the feelings
of love and admiration which every* one
who knew him held for the noble and brave
officer now lost to us forever, Hla memory
will ever be green In the hearts of his coun
As jet we are cot. aware .of the arrange
