it would be a proper remedy lor these dis
orders. Influence Is not government. Let

erties and properties will be secured; or let
ns know the worst at once. Under these Im-
presslons, my humble opinion is that there is
a call for. decision; know precisely what the
insurgents aim at. If they have real
grievances, redress them If possible,
or acknowledge the justice of them
and ' your inability to I do it in

■ such bodies Increase by every movement, un
less there Is something in the way to obstruct

These are my sentiments. Precedents are
dangerous things. Let the reins ol Govern

wait "from day to day for tidings
from the Army ol the Potomac; expecting
to hear that when it attacks the rebel hosts
it will inflict terrible damage, if it docs not
utterly rout and overwhelm them. But
whether through the fortune ot war this
expectation be fulfilled or not, we fedsure,
that the Army of the Potomac will bend
every energy, and accomplish all that
human valor, endurance and skill dm do.
Per however barren of great successes, and
crowning victories its career may have
been, we know of no army that has done
- better fighting, ordisplayed more soldierly
qualities, and truer heroism, in the front of
the most formidable difficulties and dan
gers, and amidst the most alarming misfor-
times and reverses. The behavior of the
Army of the Potomac in the ax days fight
of the Peninsula, was such as challenges
the admiration of all lor the constancy,, in
trepidity, and endurance of itslnen. The
steadiness, freedom from confusion, and
ever fresh pluck and vigor with which it
fell back under Pope, and fought its way to
the Potomac against large odds, will ever
remain a brilliant record of the splendid
fightingznaterialofwhichitismadenp. The
* quickness with which after this long retreat,
and so much to dishearten and demoralize, it
again responded to the command of Mc
, Cldlan, and gathering up its broken and
weary drove Lee from the field of
. WTitifftara across the Potomac, ; mnst extort
.' the praise and .admiration of all. What
■ xnore brilliant charges, and steady, un-
I flinching assaults against impreghableposl
r. turns, were ever seen, than those made by
” the Army of the Potomac under Burnside
at Fredericksburg? The wilderness at
. ClxanceUorsrille also bears witness to the
: gallant spirit, and invincible courage of
that Army, as its steady and safe repassage
of the swollen Rappahannock, does to its
high tone of subordination and discipline.
That it has not achieved greater successes,
and accomplished all our hopes; that it has
not already taken Hichmond, overwhelmed
the ..rebels, and destroyed the rebellion,
only shows, that in our own as all other
wars, progress must often bellow; delays
and obstacles will interfere that no human
wit could foresee; and we should leam that
through tins very process of hindrance,
delay and reverse a surer success, and more
glorious triumph, are being made ready.
It is also most gratifying, that tho mo
ment Gen. Meade took command, all par
tisan clamor and rival abuse utterly ceased.
■ Wo hear not a word of jealousy, prejudice
or disparagement of him. The |whple army
and all the country unite in the same good
opinion of his qualifications as a comman
der and his character as a man. It is ad
mitted on all rides that he justly holds the
highest rank as a soldier, and is worthy.of
Ihe respect of all as a Christian gentli»m>m.
This unanimity of feeling, coming after
the bitter personal and party strife over
the merits of former commanders, that
have divided the country and so greatly
injured the efficiency of the army, is a
most cheering fact. There is every reason
• to believe that the Army of tho Potomac,
* made up as it is of men of such fine intel-
ligence, true courage, unyielding vigor and
endurance, and so well armed and discip
lined that it is surpassed by no other army
on. earth,'will, under such leadership,
sustained and animated by the united heart
and voice of the whole country, achieve
great and enduring success.
The Army of the Potomac should have
aU the confidence of the country for its
past history. With its new commander,
and Its late great success, it is marching
on with a firmer and steadier tread to new
Victories. Let us not fashion so exactly
the shape of the triumphs which are sure
to come; that we shall be disappointed,
complain and blame, if they come in pome
other and unexpected mode.
We Imagined, rather prematurely, It
. cecum, that we had done with the peace
cijj that the recent successes which our
<3enerals have achieved in the field, would
"have effectually stopped the mouths of all
rebel sympathizers in the free States, and
have compelled them to assume the virtue of
- loyalty, although they did not possess it;
hut we calculated without our host, and
find, the reckoning all wrong. So far from
hdngadead cry, it is as much alive, and
ns big a fact to-day, as it ever was—as im
pudent as ever—as shifty, and as villain
ousiy plausable. The invasion of the Free
{ States by the rebels ought to have been
sufficient ol itself to hare hilled it; ought
to have brought every Copperhead to his'
knees in the hope of saving hisncck, but, as
It is something astonishing, and not to
be accounted tor on the known principles
which regulate human action and con
duct There was, it is true, a lull for
about a week in the Copperhead camp,
especially in Pennsylvania, alter Lee had
actually invaded that State. And it was
thought that these dirty and skulking rear
rebels would certainly give up the ghost
as a peace parly, for good and the remain
der of the war, lest a worse thing should
beta! them, lest they should be forced into
the ranks and made to smell the first peace
gunpowder in the front, of battle. But
their silence was” ominous, and meant
more venom by and by, as the event bnq
proved. _
if invasion, and federal success were the
very things they were waiting for, to give
edat to a new outburst of sympathetic
feeling, the more we took Vicksburg and
whipped Lee, the harder did they vocifer
ate Peace!—the louder did they cry us
mercy for the rebels.
The Copperhead journals are strenuous
Just now in advocating a treaty with the
rebels, which shall be so worded as to give
them no unnecessary pain, and induce
them to accede to earnest propositions
which we are to make to them for a final
suspension of the war, and the restoration
of peace. It doesn’t look possible; and
how reasonable it is let apy sane man try to
guess. But such is the' fact. The Aka York
World devoted a column of leader to this
very subject a morning or two ago. All
other dodges having lailed, this journal
puts it to our humanity and civilization,
whether we ought not to bind up the
wounds of rebddom, andj treat with the
rebels upon equal terms, as it they were a
people, and not a wild brood of infuriated
insurgents, at war with a just and benefi
cent Government. The World professes to
be shocked at the horrible'doctrine of sub
jugation,: which has got afloat in the free
States, and which it says is so clearly
the policy of the Federal Government with
respect to the rebels. He tells us that now
we have beaten Lee and taken Vicksburg,
we can afford to be merciful—and ought
at once to make overtures to JdT: Davis
that it may please him to condescend to
come back with his revolted minions, and
declare his allegiance to the authority of
the “ United States Government—that
be will be so good when he does
return—if only for the sake of decorum—
not to spit upon anybody as he promised
to do a while ago—but to come back
with as good a grace as he can muster for
the occasion. And the World tells us if
we do this we shall stand acquitted before
all the nations, of a certain charge of sav
agery which is beginning to cling to us,
and our arms, because of the cruel treat
ment to which we have subjected the reb
els during this war!
If any charge of tins nature is prefer
red against us, it had better stick to us if it
can, and we had better abide by it rather
than run the imminent risk of having the
still graver charge of insanity preferred
against us by acceding to the traitorous
suggestion of the well known organ of
secessia. TVe wish they may 1 get it Un
conditional surrender is the only term of
treaty which we are likely to oiler the
rebels. Ob, the tenacity with which these
miserable aiders and abetters of the enemy
ding to him! Awhile ago wo were told
* we ought to make peace because we could
never conquor the rebels, and were entail
ing upon the country a-horrible and un
necessary war. How, because it is dear
that the Confederacy is well nigh smashed
and its armies scattered and demoralized,
we are told that it is our duty to make
peace in order to save our own reputation
as a dvilized people, and as an
act of humanity to the rebels.
Ex-President Pierce preached the same
doctrine thisveryjweek—said he never be-
war—although if we remember
rightly he was a soldier in the Mexican
army I—and that moral suasion alone could
slop it This too, within hearing of
the thunder, of the invaders’ cannon!
To such extremity of insanity and degra
dation are these peace hounds driven at
Salhrayg East and. West,
A Wettem man when travelling over East
ern railroads, in the old, ill-ventilated cars,
need twenty years ago, feels a just pride in
the superiority, in the accommodations and
management of onr Western ; railways. If
travellers have ever found a car fit to ride In
—one, in fact, for the use of which, the com
panies should not be indicted for perpetrating
a nuisance and a hand upon the public, upon
the Hudson Bivcr, or the Camden and Amboy
railroads, they have been more fortunate than
the writer hereof We mention roads,
timply as a specimen of the kind of accom
modations that prevail on most Eastern lines.
In railway management, everything goes on
In the did beaten track. There : arc no im
provements in the ventilation and other ap
pointments of their cars, and people whose
business forces them to travel considerably,
may set it down as certain, that their lives
are shortened precisely In proportion to the
amount of travel*they are forced From
this ignoring of all improvement among
Eastern railways, the Erie road should be ex
cepted. For some years past, they have had
well ventilated cars, and on oar last trip east
ward, we found that the New York Central
had followed suit, at .least, there were one or
two new and superior cars upon the train.
Now, in contrast with the cinders, the dust
and the dirt one everywhere meets on East
ern railways, we point with real pride,'to
either of the great lines that centre in Cblca.
go. Onr railway managers seem to vie'with
each other, in securing the best possible
accommodations for the travelling public.
Not only are the cars, in almost all cases,
well ventilated, bat the tracks are ingood
order, and one glides along all .day, with case
and comfort. The air is as*pore as in hie own
parlor, and he arrives at his Journey's. end,
free from headache, and has no need of on Af
rican gentleman, with brash, forhslf an hour
to remove the “free soil” that has attached
Ittelf to his wardrobe.
A marked difference will also be noticed in
the treatment travellers receive from the cm
ployees-of Eastern and Western railways. At
the West, managers enforce strict discipline,
and require courtesy and politeness from all
connected with their roads, towards passen
gers and strangers. At the East,- every stock
holder, certainly every director, has some
empty paled son or nephew, for whom, as he
has no decent qualifications for any position
in society, ho imposes upon the railroad for
support. Is it any wonder that stupidity, not
to say arrogance and indecency, nre the gen
eral role among. most employees whom one
meets while travelling on Eastern railways.
We mentioned, a few days since, a gross
outrage, perpetrated by the Hudson Bivcr
railway, by which a car load of passengers
wasleitat East Albany, to trundle to New
York on a milk train, - or the boats, or to take
some other conveyance, as best they could-.
The thing was done without excuse or possi
ble palliation. Agents or conductors at the
West, who should serve acrowdof passengers
in that way, would never do it the second
time. But with its stock above a hundred
and fifty, what cares the Hudson Biverroad
for the comfort or the convenience of the pnh-.
lie. New Yorkers may bo forced to submit
to such outrages; but as ior the West, our
people can go by the steamers, or the Harlem
road, or what is better, the Erie road, and
avoid being by the way, on account ol the
stupidity, if nothing worse, of the managers
of the Hndson Elver road. During the pres
cient season, tho Great Western, an extension
of the Erie road, will bo completed to Cleve
land and to Mansfield, Ohio, when there wfii
be bat a single change of cars between Chi
cago and New 1 ork. The Hudson Bivcr roqd
may then he Induced to mend both its man
ners and morals, if it gets any considerable
travel from the great and growing West.

and 16th. a convention of colored citizens Is
to he held at New York, for
the purpose of devising practical measures
lor the enrollment and, organization of
“American citizens of African descent,” to

examined the subject, that : at least fifteen
thousand colored troops might be raised in
the Northern States—and that fire or els reg

A Whisky Shop Demolished bt Wombk.—
On Wednesday evening last the grocery store
of Joseph Jaqcln, in Cruger, Woodford
county, (111.) was, with Its contents, nearly
demolished by a party of men and women.
The attack was led by a girl named Ann*
Leighman, and occasioned by the refusal of
Mr. Jaquin to - stop selling ■ liquor to ber
father, who, os it Is said, was in the habit of
spending much of his time there. Ou the
evening named Miss Lelgfiman went to tho
store at about ten o’clock, and demanded
from Jaquin a promise that he would sell her
father no more liquor. This he refused to
give, whereupon she raised a hatchet and
commenced the work of demolishing the con
tents of the store. A crowd soon collected,
quite a cumber of whom aided ber In the
work, and in on incredibly short space of
time, boxes, barrels, and cases wore smashed
and their contents scattered about the floor.
The entire stock was destroyed with, the
single exception—strange to say—of the whis

and doors were also smashed and the front of
the building damaged considerably.

Xltc Rebel Loan In Europe*
A correspondent ol the Washington Chron
ide, writing from Frankfort-on-the-Main, says
of the rebel loan:
TThhear but little, now-a days, of the rebel
loan.- Baron Erhmgcr, in this city, and his
son, in Paris, pretend to have taken the whole
of it, and have disposed of some of It in
England and France. None of it has been or

that those bankers have only invested $500,000
inethls loan. Erlonger is a converted Jew,
and publicly sold, when remonstrated with
for lending money to establish a Government

thought it was not very reputable, but he did

and that it was not so profitable, and then ho
had to make much exertion to dispose ofit.
The Lot don Tima quoted it as offering
“great advantages,” and at the same time ad

to visit the cafes aud circulate the report that
the Joan was much sought after, and that Er
langer dc Co , had already made above three
minions of llorins out of it Nobody was
bound to believe this.- The Bourse would not
allow it to be sold here, nor was, probably a
dollar of it sold in Frankfort, the money cap
ital of Germany. The oldest bankers were
down upon it. The Rothschilds would not
touch it, and expressed surprise that any
German house, aud particularly a Jew, who
belonged 10 a race'so long oppressed, would
lend money to the Confederate ; government,
who were trying to establish a slave oligar
chy. : •
Baron C. M. Yon BothschQd declared that

Reported Invasion of Illinois.
SnjiWKBETO W2T, HI., July IL—The reports
of rebel raids in Kentucky and Indian* are
occasioning considerable uneasiness in this
part of South Illinois. Morgan with his army
• of mounted marauders will probably strike
through Indlanaj- across the Wabash, into
this State. There is reasou to expect a dash
upon Mound City and Cairo, with the view
of capturing or destroying the Government
stores and other war material lying there.
Indeed, there is nothing to prevent a rebel
army from making a successful foray through
the entire length and breadth of the State of
Illinois, destroying our railroads, robbing our
towns, and devastating onr rich harvest. We
have no armed organization now in the State,
and Illinois is In tact as much at the mercy of
the invaders, shoold they succeed in reaching
our soil, as was Pennsylvania. Is it not time
for onr people to be stirring ?

The news from Vicksburg, and the general

Gen. Schofield has discovered at this late
day that the publication of the letter written
by President Lincoln, in relation to hiaap

was published a fortnight ago. Whether the

dignity, and refuses to .give any clue to the
source through which he obtained the letter.
The President of the United States might
possibly give Gen. Schofield the desired in
formation. If the copy did not come through
Gen. Schofield, there is only one other mode
by which it could have reached the public,
vix., through the President. The arrest is
looked on as a good joke, and the victim is
likely to grow hejirty and fat upon it. When
the explanation comes to be made known tbe
General commanding will regret the arbitrary
course he has pursued in this matter.
The chords of discontent with the so called
emancipation ordinance passed by the Slave
holders* State Convention,' are swelling.
Meetings are advertised to be held in several
parts of the interior,, to protest against the
action and to uige the Legislature to call a
new Convention. The principle of exempt
ing slave property from taxation henceforth,
elicits the severest condemnation, and will
influence a very large proportion of the vot
ers and tax-payers of the State adversely to
the proposed emancipation I measure. Tne
apprenticeship system engrafted in this
scheme, by which slavery is prolonged for an
indefinite number of years, is a device which
the people will not readily swallow. In the
meantime, the practical difficulties of the case
■are rapidly melting away—the negroes are
setting themselves freely a free use of their
legs, and the slaveholdiog interest is dimin
ishing daily so fast that iu a few months not
a corporal’s guard will be left.
Although the repulse of Price and Holmes
at Helena, and the capture of Vicksburg car
ries the brunt of the war fur to the south of
Missouri, the guerilla thieves of the interior
evince no signs of repentance and fatigue.
In some localities they are active as ever.
The only sure means of suppressing them,
short of individual annihilation, Is to kill off
the leaders. It has been noted that since
CoL Parker was killed, near Lexington, the
depredations of Missouri Vally have ceased.
It is the shrewd, active, untiring leaders who
keep guerillas in motion. Strike them do wn,
and the gang disperse. Some mischief has
been perpetrated in the northwestern coon
ties, of. late, by a gang led by one
Joe Hart. The passion for running off
horses is the chief delight ofi the guerillas
and they .were sure to appear wherever a sup
ply of horses can be found. On the whole it
must be admitted that bushwhackers ore less
active and numerous than they were a few
weeks since. Gen. Guitar who has been
placed in command of all the forccs’in North
Missouri, understands the guerilla game well,
and maybe expected to deal energetically
with them. i
The Union between the so-called Conserva

in tbe interior, seems to be complete. Con
gressman Hollins and ex-Semitor Henderson,
seem to be in full league with such Copper

the Federal measures of the Government.
Before the next election, these men will be
heartily united on an opposition ticket. The

The politics of Missouri are gradually as
suming this, shape: That the rebel sympa
thizers, Copperheads and conservatives will
all rally around one platform, and the radi
cals around another. The people of the coun
try understand this, and in all the public
meetings and harangues in the interior conn
ties, nothing but the most radical doctrine
kneels with fovor. The next Congress will
find at least four radical men from Missouri—
Mcesrs. Blow, Boyd, McClarg and Loan. We
hope to elect Lindsay from xfocli’s district,
which’will make five. The conservatives
may threaten to unite with the Copperheads,
and elect.conservative Senators to overcome
the opposition in the House, but it wUI not
Further stirring news ought to be received
from Arkansas shortly. A large cavalry
force, under command of Gen. Davidson, is
by this time near or through the rebel lines.
Judging by the tone of tbe. prisoners cap
tmed at Helena, tbe conscripts raised in Ar
kansas will moke a feeble {resistance to our
advance. There was recently supposed to be
a small force of cavalry it Jacksonport.'
There were several hundred sick rebels in
hospital at Little' Rock, who would probably
fed delighted if. gobbled up by onr forces.
The reoels have moved all the available
troops west of Little Bock to support* the
small army besieging Col. Phillips at Port
Gibson. Gen. Blunt, however, promises to
iuteifere with that game, and give the rebel
forces plenty to do besides troubling Colonel
Phillips at Port Glbaon.
ThePresidont has abolished tbe office of
Military Governor of Arkansas, and relieved
Hon. John L. Phelps of the duties of that
position. * Judge Murphy, one of tbe few real
union delegates to the Arkansas State Con
vention, is now in this city a refugee, and is
prominently mentioned as a successor to Mr.
Fhcips, in the resumption of Federal author
ity over the toothpick State.
The Conservatives arc horribly shocked be
cause several cf the enrolling officers under
the Conscription law have taken the names
of slaves. They complain that this is a pirn
to steal the blacks, though what connection
writing down Sambo’s nameh&s'with running
off Sambo to a free Slate, is unknown. Ap
propos ot tbe Conscription law,; it is semi-of
ficial!; announced that Misfcouri will have no
credit lor the enrolled militia in native serv
ice, and that the State will be subjected to a
draft for 20,000 men. The commutation of
three hundred dollars, however) lightens the
load for tbe wealthier classes of secessionists.
ot>L W. K. Morrison has overhauled the
roll of volunteers raised in this State, to as
certain tbe number of men who belong to Ill

He finds the number about 2,C30 whose resi

that many hundreds of Illinolsiane enlisted

Gen. Lee, onr High Commissioner • and
Plenipotentiary for conclusion of a peace, Is
proceedingwell enough with his benificont
mission. His olive branch is blossoming and
will bear wholesome fruit.
Gen. Leo’s magnificent victory at Gettys
burg, has doubtless cost ns very dear, as
many of us will know too welt when the de
tails come in. At tho present we hare.only
the grand and glorious result—the greatest
army of the Yankee nation swept away,
trampled under foot, and‘ all but an
nihilated upon its own soil—the best
part .of Pennsylvania laid under

of millions it'most pay to ransom'it from pil*.

more waiting its deliverance with a passion
ate bnt secret joy; and Washington, that foal
den of thieves, expecting tbe righteous ven
geance of Heaven for the hideous crimes that
have been done within its walls. 'ln Philadel
phia, how the Quakers quake this day! In
Washington, how tho whole brood ofLincoln
and his rascal ministers turn pale—how thelr
knees smite together, as they near from afar
off the roar or-the grand , army of the Poto
mac rolled back in ,bloody rone and dismay,
and see flashing through their guilty dreams
the avenging bayonets of those they dared to'
call “rebels!” Ha! does tlielrl monstrous
crime way heavy on their souls to-day ? Min
gling with the cheers that greeted the sweet
j croralions of their Fourth-of-Juiy “orators
of the day,” do their cars hear the wall of the
homeless and the fatherless whose houses
they have Mn in ashes, whose* pride and
strength they have laid low in the graves of
a hundred battle fields? Yes, thfey begin to
feel that they were in tbe wrong;! tbat there
was some mistake somewhere; and for the
first time they pray for peace. ;
Bnt this is only their first lesson. It Is
probable that onr Peace Commissioners * will
nave yet several othersuch to administer, be-'
fore the enemy shall bo perfectly satisfied
that there is no possible peace for him until
he withdraws every soldier from ’the soil of

The Indian Expedition a Prob
able Fail are.
Fearful Incidents’ in Border Life,
[From the St. Paul Press, 11th.]
Captains Ballley and Merriman, on sick
leave, and Lieutenant McAlcxauder, resigned,
all of the 6th regiment, have arrived in this
city by tbe way of Abercrombie on their re
turn home from the Indian expedition, under
General Sibley, which they-left at Lac Trav
erse. Their account of the condition and
prospects of the expedition is very discourag
ing, and indicate&a literal fulfillment of the
prophecies which we based, more than a week
-ago, on tbe presumed effects of the drought
and the ravages of prairie fires, over the coun
try on its route. . .
A train of Wagons, under a strong guard,
under Colonel Averill, came .with them to
Fort Abercrombie lor supplies. The intense
heats had .ruined much of the commissary
stores, and so seriously aSecled the wagon
wheels that many of them were left behind.
"Water was very scarce—vegetation dried up.
Many of the men wefb sick, and ageneral dis
satisfaction prevailed. Many of the officers
fatored the abandonment of the expedition,
but Gen, Sibley insisted on going ahead. This
Is no more than we expected.:
In ordinary seasons the scarcity of water in
the broad, level prairies of the Red River Val-‘
ley, which is only found In the streams which
traverse that region at wide intervals, mens
uied sometimes oy a day’s journey, la exces
sively exhausting to men and animals; under
ibit oppressive heats of midsummer.
But the .unprecedented drought which has
reigned (not rained) over the whole country,
has not only dried up many ot the streams,
but has shrivelled and dried up the grass/ and
in this condition, the prairie fires, lit doubt
less but the cunning Indians, have swept the
whole country west and north of Abercrom
bie of almost every vestige of vegetation.
This black and sooty Sahara, which stretch
is for a hundred miles on the proposed route
of the expedition, must prove, when It is
reached, an absolutely insuperable barrier'to
its further progress, and it will be compelled-,
to turn back from the sheer impossibility of
procuring feed for the animals.
, It is possible that the accounts of the rav
ages of prairie fires may be exaggerated—but
in any event the drought will have burnt up •
all vegetation, except along the-narrowvaf-*
leys of the streams, and even the .havoc of fire
could add little-but the choking dust of Us
block ashes to tbe general desolation '.of the
'country. Moreover, the country to which the
expedition is-eaid to be destined, In the vicin
ity of Devil’s lake, is always a dry, sandy
district—very thinly grassed fin the most fa
vorable seasons—and under the present cir
cumstances It would be almost impossible to
reach there with such an enormous train of
animals—except possibly, by closely following
the valley of the Shayenne—a necessity which'
would interfere sadly with the mobility of
tbe expedition—and wall it within a narrow
belt. ;
These foots are almost necessarily fatal to
fhe success of the expedition. It will have to
be abandoned In Us present form, lor the
present season, at least. The conclusion Is a
painful one, but we might as well look facta
in the foce. For the result every candid man
must see that Gen. Sibley is not in the re
motest degree responsible—add every sensi
ble man will be mucb more inclined to cen
sure him for a rash and obstinate persistence
in an enterprise which an unforeseen fatality
bos made impossible, than for its prompt
abandonment when Providence baa deprived
it of all the physical conditions of success.
The return of the. expedition does not by
any means Involve the abandonment of the
campaign, but will afford an opportunity,
■which we trust will be promptly seized to re
form tbo whole plan of operations in accord
ance with existing circumstances.
A correspondent of the same 1 paper writing
from Hutchinson, (Minn.) gives the following
interesting details; ,
'"About ten days since. Mr. McCurdy, a ped
dler, left herein the -morning to go to Glen
coe. Six miles south of this point Mr. Me--
Curdy observed two men oh horseback, en
deavoring to conceal themselves by a little
elevation in the prairie, and by lying down
with their face* to the necks of their ponies.
He ai once suspected that theyrwere Indiana,
and driving up to within about one hundred
rods his suspicions were confirmed, and he
turned his horses* heads again to wards Hatch
ing on. Seeintr this, the Indians gave chase,
and pursued him two miles. Having a good
team, and light load, os. well os a good prairie
‘read, Mr. McCurdy pretty easily Kept out of
the way of his pursuers, who did not at any
tliiio get nearer him than eighty or ninety
rods. Flnrlly the-red-skins gave up the
chase, and after few moments, made
a right flank movement and struck out for the'
woods. • «‘ i '* • :
On last Friday evening, July 2d, as Mr.
Lampson and bis son Cbauncey were travel
ing along the road, * six- miles north of this
pluce, they discovcrcdtwo Indians.
The ground where the Indians were discov
ered, is a little prairie opening In the woods,
interspersed with clumps of bushes and
vines, and a few scattering poplars. The In
dians were picking berries and did not dis
cover the Messrs. L. Concealing themselves
immediately, Mr. L., after reflecting a mo
ment on the best course to bo pursued, fnvin<y
advantage of the cover offered by a poplar
surrounded with bashes and i vines, crept
quietly foiward until ho reached the tree,
steadying bis gun against the tree, and taking
deliberate aim he fired. -The Indian instantly
threw back, his binds with a! yell, and fell
backward to the ground, severely wounded.
Not knowing bow many Indians there might
be, Mr. L. thought beet to retreat a little, to
obtain the Ebelter of some bathes. la doing
this, be bad to poas over a litUo -knolL
■ The wounded Indian crept to obtain
a chofc at Mr. L., 'who was still partially
shielded by tbe poplar tree and vines. In
crossing tbe little knoll,* just referred to, Mr.
L. was obliged to expose himself, and * both
Indians and Chatmcey L. fired simultaneously.
C ’b bull instantly killed the wounded Indian.
The Indian’s, ball whistled close by C.’s
cheek, while a buck shot from the other In
dian** gun struck Mr. L. on the left shoulder
blade, making a flesh wound perhaps - two
icches and a half la length. The other In
dian then mounted his horse and rode rapidly
away. Mr. L. dropped when-thb shot struck
film, and, C. L. thinking his father was kill
t d, and not knowiog how many Radians there
* might be around them, and haying no more
'ammunition, his father, who was at some dls
t.mce fiom him, having the ammunition, now
thought it best to retreat and glVe tbe alarm.
Ho reached Hutchinson aboutflO o’clock at
right with tbo exciting news, add in a short
time a squad of Company E, accompanied by
a number of the citizens, were-marching
rapidly toward the scone of the! recent con
flict, while others of the troops and citizens
started immediately to worn the citizens of
.Cedar Settlement to bo,on theif guard, and
others went to Lake Frcston for! a squad of
cavalry. ■
But we must now return to Mr. L., whom
we left wounded bn the field. Mr. L., after
being wounded, crawled into tbo bushes, and
secreting himself, reloaded hi* gun, drew his
revolver, and waited for the Indians to come
on. Thus he waited for some time. After
remaining in his concealment until ho could
profit by tbe cover of coming night, ho laid
aside bis gun, threw off his white shirt, lest
itr might lead to bis discovery by prowling In
dians, and after a circuitous nod toilsome
inarch reached home at 2 o’clock on Saturday
morning. * i
.Nest morning the boys of company E,
guided to tbe spot by B. Lampson, jr., found
the body of the dead Indian, and relieving
liimofsomo of his hair, his mbccosins, his
citizens coat,- to-gethor with a number of
trinkets, returned to the village bringing with
them positive proof that the red-skin was
really “a dead Injun.” Some of the boys
then started with a wagon to bring in the
body to the village.: 'Arriving tit the spot,
they found the body minus the scalp.
Aa we were assembling to church yesterday,
we were startled by the intelligence that tno
body of a murdered man had been found oh
tbe Kingston road, about sir miles from
town, we started immediately for the scene.
The body was found about one and a half
mils from Twin Lake, or Lake Sylvia, asaome
call It. ' Ho.had been shot under the left arm,
in about the region of the heart; had fallen
from his horse, beside the road; and after
wards been dragged by one leg, down hill, to
where ho lay, about three rods from the road.
His body was visible from i the road,
but not distinctly, on account of the herbage
and brush. The trail had been noticed by the
mail carrier on Friday, and a smell perceived
but nothing more. The body was supposed
to be that of James McGannon, a resident of
Anoka, to which place he removed during the
Indian trouble, lie formerly lived near Forest
City, from which place he was 1 reluming,
when he met with ms untimely end.

, The enrollment is near its completion, and
in some districts of this city the draft is ex
pected lo commence on Monday next. There
is a great deal of public excitement and in*
teiest in relation to it, and a great many ques
tions are asked that nobody can or will an
swer. Various statements are made as to
what is really the quota of this city under a
supposed call for 800,000 troops, as the Pro
vost Marshals are instructed to take that num
ber as their basis. It has been officially stated
that the quotas of this State, under previous
call, have been decided completed bp the au
thorities at Washington. Now then, if the
dtp is called npon lor her quota of men on
the basis of 800,000 from the loyal States, it
t?ill be about 13,500, or subtracting the de
duction the. Government ..has promised to
make on account of the thirty, daps* service of
our'dtp militia, something less than, 13,000.
Sonic papers state it at a much larger number, 1
but there must be some mistake. Because
this cityjias Mways responded with more
alacritp than anp pther part of the Union to a
coll for volunteers, there is no reason that
twice its quota should be taken from it when
the matter comes to 'force. In.the Eighth
district the conscription will commence at 10
a. m. on Mondap. There are 200,000 inhabit
.ants, and 7,500 names will be drawn. From
the Sixth district, of which Captain Farr is
Provost Marshal, the following numbers of
names are to be drawn: Ninth ward, 3,453;
Fifteenth ward, 1,741; Sixteenth ward, 3,055.

fifty per cent, which it is expected will exempt

[From the Providence Journal.]
Tbe Journal has bad frequent occasions to
acknowledge the kind, attentions of Provost
Marshal Hamlin and his Bat'what
praise is sufficient' for them, now; that they
have made such a “draft” upon their kindness
as to give one of our editorial i corps a place
among the Euirct conscript 1 We thought that
we hod some friends. But we had no Idea
that they were so many as called 10 congratu
late us yesterday afternoon. .And they were
so free too from envy of oar new honors. It
raised our estimate of the disinterestedness of
mankind.. And then how gracefully was the
opportunity improved to pay a delicate com
pliment on yombfalnesa. As much os to say,
“whatl young enough to bo drawn. Who
would have thought ft!” And bow delight
ful it was to find such & surplus of editorial
talent in the. visitors, and such kindness of
heart as ,to offer to fill our [place during
ourtcmporaiy absence of three years in the'
army. That happy union ofj ability with
generosity was encouraging and touching.
In fifteen minutes we .were so fortunate as to
have come into our office two or.three gentle
men ready to take the', “ heavy leaders,” one
witty parogniphist, onerellsblegeatleman, one
intelligent contraband, one deserter, who bad
always been a Union man, one veracious lady,
who bad escapedfromrebeidom/and one local
reporter, good for the late hoars of night. It
was cheering to think that so much help was
so promptly at hand in the emergency. Per
haps weoughttoadd, that our visitors, though
so generous, all appeared to’ suffer from
physical disability, when the subject of acting
as military substitutes was broached. Them
liberality was of the high, Intellectual sort.
Let us not forget thegenerons tender of a pat
riotic owner of three one-hundred pound
rifled shells, who, with lavish generosity,
offered to put them in onr knapsack without
coitions or to the government. And then
what a bliss to fed fur the first time tbe thrill
of martial camaraderie, ns onr fellow conscripts
dear, gallant souls, resolved to' do or die or
get substitutes, or pay &KX) each, dropped in

bow much more—we have to thank the Sortes

dentially to our brave and belligerent com
rades, that weunderstahdthat tne government

Yesterday morning, the Provost Marshal
commenced drafting in Boston. |ln one ward,
the. book contained 1,906 names, oat of which
572 were drawn. In the district (.the 4th) com

suburban towns ol Cambridge, [ Chelsea and

8,798. These also were drawn yesterday.
• Shortly after 9 o’clock. Assistant Provost

table and read his orders In relation to tho

of the enrolling clerks, Mr.' Charles H. Car*

to make the drawing. To the large hollow
wheel was attached a handle, which was tarn*

name ut him who was fated to ahoaldur the
musket, if not exempt or ready! with three
hundred dollars to buy himself offi When
everything was in readiness tho' wheel was
turned, and the first name announced was
that of “ William Jouee, Forty-ninth street,

which was the only display worthy of note at
the time. • :
Everythiogthenwent on os quietly as pos
sible during the entire day. people
seemed to take it in more of a jocular than a
serious mood, as a smile flitted frequently
across the countenances of several. When
some familiar name was announced, there was
on ejaculation of “Howare yon,Brady?” or
“How are you, Jones?” Then there were
jocular tokens of sympathy, such as “Good
bye, Patrick,” or “Goodbye, James,” when

cers Of the district. — JV. Y. Herald, 1 2th,
There seems to be little excitement here about
tbe draft that is now going on id the State,
and in 'which we are all interested. Most
people feel that it is necessary, and that the
best results will be' 1 likely to follow. With
many it is the conviction that the frvar is sub
stantially at an end, and that the men now
called out, though imperatively needed, will
not be likely to. be called into active service
in the field. It is some consolation, too, to
such as think they may be drawn, to know
:tbat they will find themselves in good com
pany, such as have alreapy secured prizes in
Providence. •
-By tbe by, it eeems quite proper-for the
friends of the fortunate editor of the Journal ,
who by the wheel of fortune has been sud
denly thrust into the line of heroes, to send
up their congratulations from Newport as
well as from other sources. We always khew
thatthemanof the quill could’ wield the
sword, and that he was only waiting the op
portunity, and. though we are sorry to part
with him, we certainly wish him the greatest
' success. It la reported that his' friends at
Providence are ready to present him with a
horse, and that being the cose, we hereby
tender him a pairoispurs. The only con
dition is this: when ho is booted and mount
ed, all equipped and ready for the fray, be
must show himself in our city for ! the admi
ration of his less fortunate friends who draw
blanks and are thus compelled to stay at
home. —Providence Journal, 10 th.
The Befence of* IV. Y. Harbor*
[From the N. T. World.]
It is reported upon excellent authority t>mfr
the converted iron-clad ateam frigite Koan
; oke, the most formidable afloat in either
hemisphere, in reapect both to armor and
arms, is to remain os a guard to this harbor
For that purpose she Is worth all‘our forts
and we can now laugh at all the iron-clads
likely to issue from the Southern porta. -
In addition to the four rad one-holf-luch
plates, she carries three hub# turrets and air
15* inch guns. She is the only iron-clad afloat
which is plated as thickly- on the bow* and
stern as on the sides.
For the present, therefore, our. citizens
may rest secure In the knowledge that they
have an iron-clod batteiy in the harbor that is
competent to blow half a dozen Warriors out
of the water.

/ It Is currently reported among our own
officers, that at the rebel cavalry raid day bo
fore yesterday, at Springfield Lauding, Gen.
Neal Dow and several other officers were
taken prisoners.
The following order has been issued to day
from the headquarters of the defeases of New
Orleans. You will see by its tenor that the
cord of martial law Is drawn tighter than ever
around us. It is a highly proper order, aud
one that should aud will be strictly enforced.
I have now to ash the question in the face
of this order, it looks very much like Lou
isiana coming back into the Union by the act
of her citizens ? All that I have said regard
ing the condition ot affairs in this State is
turning out to be true. Every day brings
additional proof that we are no nearer recon
ciliation, if as near,-than: we were a year
since. And why is it so? Simply because
we have done nothing' bat exasperate - these
against ua by acts worthy of barba
rians:. -- ■ ’

. A fiogof truce has been received to-day at

by which they desire to return the prisoners

ile more, if any, will find its way to this mar
ket daring the summer, willinave the ten
dency,' no doubt, to take off the New Orleans
route aome.qftliß fine steamers now running
tnexe. It seems a pity that Gen. Banks did
cot rest satisfied with the occupation of the
Attakapas country, and wait quietly until
heavily reinforced before attempting Port
Hudson. Had he done so he would have been
vastly the gainer, for ali the produce of that
country could have been brought safely to this
.market, and the troops would Have been in a
healthy country during the summer months.
General Magrnder, with all his force could
have dope nothing against ns, and Fort Hud
son would have been no stronger in the fall
than it now is. If wehadbeensatisfledwitha
Utile at a time, wo shonld have gained much;
but,'desiring too much, we have In all proba
bility lost, everything. The few Northern
cotton speculators remaining, here to watch
an opportunity, are beginning to despair of
being able to do anything. ;They talk,of
going home in the next steamer, giving up
this department for this season at least. The
Jews are reported to have lost heavUyat
Brashear; they bod stored there an immense
quantity of everything In their Une, ready to
be the first over the Atchofeyla when the per
mit to trade was issued. Alt. their property
has felleu into the hands of the enemy; con
sequently they are enragedat the loss of their
goods as weU as the prospect of obtaining so
much cotton and sugar. They ore to bo
pitied, “ over the left.”; ?
.The gallant bearing of Sergeant Samuel
Pollock, of the Cth Michigan, was represent
ed to. .General Emory by a participant m the
straggle. The General sent for the worthy
non-commissioned officer, and interrogated
him freely. He ascertained that the Sergeant
had been detailed as superintendent of a
Government plantation, and that fearing a
guerilla raid, he bad instructed his. field
hands in the use of the musket for several
days previous to the battle. When the action
took place the plantation negroes were
marshaled under his charge and stimulated to
daring deeds. One rebel Major was killed
and one wounded by the negroes Sergeant
Pollock is given credit •of having dispatched
the rebel Colonel Joe Phillips, the command
ing officer of the enemy, and having obtained
bis sword. General Emory observed to the
Sergeant that he conld not remain detailed
upTm a plantation; that such men were need
ed In the field. He gave him permission to
retain the captured sword, and ordered him
to report to General Shepley, who gave him a
position as Major.
The repulse of the rebels on Sunday last,
in their insane attempt to storm the little fort
at Donaldeonvilie, is due entirely,-! under
stand, to the navy. Had it not beea for the
presence of the.United States steamers Prin
cessßoyal and Winona, who, by their terrible
fire ot nine and eleven-inch grape and shrap
nel, mowed the enemy down m heaps, the
fort and all its garrison would have, been
token. The fire of the ships flanked the
storming column completely, and the enemy’s
loss in killed outright and prisoners is more
than double the entire number of men that
composed the garrison of the fort. Those
who were token, prisoners were Inside the
work, and could not get out on account of
the terribly destructive Are of the ships—
sixty of the rebel killed were on the parapet
and in the ditch. The steamer Princess Boyal
bore the brunt of the flght, and to her splen
did gunnery our success is mainly, due. She
is commanded by * Lieutenant. Commander
WooUey. .. t
We kam nothing from Brashear CUyothor
than the enemy are in quiet possession of the
.place, and have possessed themselves of every
thlngwe left behind. It would be impossible
to obtain any correct statement from the au
thorities as to what we did lose, and the pub
lic will have to be satisfied with the informa
tion that the enemy succeeded in capturing
an immense deal of everything needed by
them, and articles valuable to ns, including
artillery of all calibres,small arms, shot; shell,
ammunition of all kinds, provisions, medical
stores, clothing, and other articles of various
kinds.. The loss has been a serious one, tor
the enemy have been famished by ns with
eve rything to enable them to fortify the
the place m such a manner that will render
' its re-capture a very serioua'afTair, if not im
possible. :
The City of ISrasliear*
A correspondent of the N. T. T forld writing
from New Orleans gives the following deacrip
tlonof tie city of Brashear, La,, lately cap*
lured by the rehela: ’ , '
Tbls cify is by no means eo large as Lon
don or Paris. It consists of a railway depot,
a tavern, a store and another store. This'is
pretty mnch oIL My own recollections of
the “city” aro limited to a single evening,
night, and following morning’s - experience.
Apoition ot this time was passedmost agree
ably on hoard the ; Calhoun, with one of the
must agreeable, of men, the late Commander
Buchanan. The tavern, which was called a
hotel, presented the attractions of .unplaster
ed rooms, cane mattresses, no mosquito bars,
and al'hough it was Christmas time, the mos
quitos in sue and music impressed one with
the idea that he was sleeping in an aviary of
humming-birds. The breakfast lore present
ed the variety of-“hog and hominy,” baked
fresh pork, and. smoked pork called bacon,
which was fried, with a cup of dirty cistern
water which had stood somewhere in the vi
cinity of a table-spoonfol'of burnt beans. It
was such a breakfast os the prodigal son might
have attained had some incendiary fired his
master’s pig pen, while the bill was each an
one as might be expected at Delmoulco’s.
To this breakfast several of ns sat down at,6
o’clock in the morning, with the atrictiojunc
tion of the conductor to hurry, ds the tralu
would leave in ten minutes—which it did—at
ten minutes past eleven o’clock. To the
tourist the city scarcely presents the attrac
tions of Paris, but to the Confederates (con
sidering what was In it) the place is almost
Cotton from India.
An English paper says: The steady appre
ciation of India cotton is one of the moat in
teresting features of the day. For years the
prediction i»as freely indulged in that India
cotton would.never be largely consumed by
the manufacturers of this country, and that,
if the supply from America fell off, oar mills
-would stop, Indian: kinds being quite un
suitable' to them. ■ In what state should
we be now were it, not for this despised
Indian cotton, seeing that it forms the bulk
of wbat onr mills are running upon? Let tho
Srices speak for themselves. “Fair” Surat
i now worth about 18d per pound; at this
date last year, it commanded 85£4; in 18GI,
5%d; and in 1860, onlydjfd. tides not this
enormous advance in price speak volumes for
the favor which Surat cotton receives and de
serves, in spite of all that has been said to the
contrary ? In Madras and other kinds of East
Indian cottoug the advance has been propor
tionate. Let it not be said that India will not
prosper under such a state of things as
No country can fall to derive benefit when the
price of one of its staple productions rises
fourfold, and -this in a market possessing so
vast a capacity of consumption that it cau
take all that is produced and still cries for
more. It appears from official data, that in
Madras Presidency alone there were, np to
last March, 1,266,000 acres of land under cot
ton cultivation, against 033,000 acres in 1863,
so that, with a satisfactory season, there is
every promise of an Increase of at: least one
third in the production of tbla description of
cotton. Considering this Increase in tho pro
duction and the accompanying great advance
in the price, it seems certain that a farther
vast impulse must he given to the develop
ment of the prosperity of India..
The Rebel Raid in Western
[Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.]
, CoLtransua, Ky.. July 11,1861. •
Yesterday, at 9a. m., a body of rebel cav
alry, numbering from 600 to 800, dashed sud
denly upon Union City, twenty-eight miles
south of this place on the lino of the Mobile
and Ohio Bailroad, surprising and capturing
the small force of 120 cavalry by. whom it had
been held. Two of the cavalry men were
hilled, and eight wounded, one of whom will
not recover. The telegraph operator was
captured, the wires cut, and the instrument
carried oft Tho wounded men were paroled,
and the other prisoners taken South. Tho
horses and other movable property were also
taken.away, while the barracks and portions'
of the stores were burned. One hundred and
eighty of Colonel Scott’s 32d lowa infantry
were sent out by railroad to the relief of
Union City, but arrived only in time to wit
ness the destruction of the Government pro
perty by fire, and to give succor to tho wound
ed. The rebels, although numbering four to
one, vanished like so many jjals when they
heard the train thundering down upon them.
Colonel Scott moved with great celerity* end
his boys were anxious to fight, even against
the greatly superior ibree, but the mounted
“ ekedaddlers” exercised the better part of
valor and did not give them a chance. There
are rumors of bodies of rebels in various
parts of this military district, but General
Asboth is making such disposition of his
forces as will effectually block any games the
rebels may seek to play. Adjutant.
Tli© Great Naval Feat.
[From the N. T. Herald, 10th.}
The proximity to our shores of the pirate
Alabama prevented ns a few weeks since from
duly reporting the accomplishment of a naval
feat unparalleled in the constructing history
of the united States Navy. It was nothing
less than the building of an iron clad vessel
of-war for the protection of the coast of Cali
fornia, and the subseqnent separation of her.
different sections, and their shipment lor Saif
Francisco. Had the Alabama and Tacony
been aware of the fact, they would probably
have watched vessel carrying the iron-clad—
-but even then they would hud her minus some
of her most important parts, which were sent
overland. The name of the Iron clad is Ca
manche. She was built by the Messrs. Secor.
of Jersey City—Senator Ryan, of California,
being one of the chief contractors.
The process of taking a ship apart was never
attempted in this navy before, and was emi
nently successful In this cose, every bolt being
put in its place before a single particle of the
hull was taken down. When*the different
portions of the work of building were finished
the Comanche,* resting on the stocks in Jer
sey city, presented the appearance of an Er
icsson battery almost ready for service. Rear-
Admiral Gregory inspected the hull before
its separation, aud reported to the N&vy De
partment the complete success of the experi
ment. Orders to take the vessel apart were
then issued by Mr. Birkbeck, who superinten
ded the construction of the ship, and the
thing was no sooner said than done. A ves
sel was then chartered to carry the divided
battery to Mare Island Navy-yard, where her
fans will bo mounted, and her commission
lied in the service of the United States of
Jlliiurd U)attr.
