TBE HEWS.
To the gentlemen that follow the Army
t)f the Potomac with fecilc and indefatiga
ble pens, the country is hugely indebted
on any occasion of moment. But in times
of quiet, or under ban of news, their pens
apparently move from the mere force of
habit, and theygiveusadreaxy samencssof
Stock phrases already worn smooth by-the
Ofing. "We beg leave to doubt whether
Lee’s army is “ demoralized.” TVe are shy
of accepting the somewhat new phrase of
Ibis morning, that he is ” entrapped,” espe
cially since it is added that Hill has rein
forced him with 10,000 men.- We prefer
lo have the readers of the Terncke believe
%vhal is the real feet, that Lee retired into
Virginia because he saw he could not do a
Letter tbmg, but crossed his army not as a
rabble, and losing nothing of ammunition
or stores. He is strong, and Meade knows
it. The enemy will prove an ugly foe to
Whip, and the cautious movements of our
envy declare it. . Whipped he must be, or
a defeat widely disastrous awaits ns. ' The
rebels are investing their all in this throw
in Virginia—their last throw, if we win it,
for it will he the last grand army of the re
bellion in the field. , Thence onward wc
have only to clear np guerilla work. Great
events hang on the next few weeks in Vir.
c inia. The consequences are important to
lis, and vital to the enemy.
Prom Kortii Carolina we have an inter-
Csting rebel account of the successes of
the recent great cavalry raid in Gen. Pos
ter’s department ...
f Charleston evidently is not yet taken.
The news is to the 19th, when the arrange
jttents were ripe for the grand bombard,
jeent at close range.
Eosccrans’ department g!yes,ns no new
clctoils. The bottom seems to have fallen
cut of his campaign. It takes two armies
to make a campaign interesting, and one
f-ccms to be missing before Hosccrans.
The draft is proceeding quietly in Phila
delphia, and with a fairness that must do
jight the on-lookers, for yesterday, in one
district, every officer connected with the
tliafi was drawn, together with the blind
yuan who look out the ballots.
We copy from the Xashviile Press a re.
tnarkable letter, ascribed to an East Ten-
TK&sccan, whose name,if announced,would
Jcnd force to his arguments, detailing his
Views of the demands of the present crisis
in East Tennessee. It folly exposes the
weakness and folly of our past campaign
ing in that section,-and Is fertile In sugges
tions as I - thelUture.
To jud: v from their blatant vociferations,
jf the Copperheads hanker after any one
thing it is the courts and the laws. Tour
3lalioncyitcs will sit up all night to elpa-
Ihitc on the beauties of legal processes and
lLe*perfect panacea of the courts. An op
portunity is now offered in lowa for
a large and interesting party of malig
nant traitors to rejoice afresh in
llic law, for under it they are now In ar
rest at Desmoines, as graphically set forth
in our dispatch. How very grateful they
ought to be. And to be .taken under the
Undoubted provisions of the Constitution,
and to be put through with a reference to
ail its guarantees, why tins is the veiy
luxury of woe. The Government is be
ginning to deal with home traitors.
John Morgan’s raid has been pretty
pearly run to earth. He Tail escape, if at
all, by the Upper Ohio, at a . point above
frunboal navigation. The Buckeyes are
confident that they hare him last, but a
f-u-rn chase is a long one, and John has
eluded them yet. Els force, however. Is a
total wreck, and enough has been captured
to serve as a wholesome set-off to the mls
r.uvcnture of Col. Sirelght’s expedition in
Georgia, and in the way of hostages in

Znrasurcs toward those brave men, now in

Our news from Vicksburg will awaken
anxiety among the friends of troops in
that quarter, from the prevalence of increas
ing sickness there, the result of the accu
mulations of waste and noxious matter
during the protracted siege. The offence
1 of Vicksburg as a rebel city was rank, and
'• the expiation of her crime against the Go v
, eminent is rank also.

The steamer Imperial was due at Cairo

■We publish elsewhere an interesting and
important array of facts presented in a let
ter of the Kew York Times correspondent,
J.. L. Crounse, an unusually intelligent
ned reliable observer of army facts, throw
ins light on the causes of Gen. Hooker’s
removal, and the events immediately pre
ceding it. This statement goes far to re
move the fame of Gen. Hooker from censure
ni (1 obloquy cast upon it in the first poig
muit disappointment of the country that
followed the misadventures of his cam
jv.ign. Loyal and candid men can afford
to pause and do full justice to General
Hooker, even if this lead to the reversing
of former hasty decisions. “We call atten
tion to the letter elsewhere.
THE DRAFT.
Samuel J. Tilden, Senator Morgan and
Judge Pierrepont are in Washington to ask
the Government, on behalf of Gov. Sey
mour, to suspend the draft in Kew York
city. The gravest, apprehension of the
Governor is represented to be that the
Jxish servant girls will, in case the law is
executed, turn incendiaries in n body, and
hum down their masters’ houses. And it
is a fact that this is the reason prominently
* t *ul forward.
Leading Democratic politicians write to
Washington that compliance with the con-
K-riplion will be urged by them, but that
if it is carried out the Democratic majori
‘y in the State will be immense. And so
Tallandigham’s election depended upon
{he enfoicement of the draft. How eager
)is friends must be* to have it begin, for
Tithout it he could not have a ghost of a
‘Lance.
In Chicago, smooth-tongued Copperhead
Mdennen, and weak-kneed Republican
property owners, a part of whose property
toußi&t in their political principles, are
Srging some method to defeat the draft in
Ibis city and thus save disturbances. Let
nobody be deceived in Kew York, Ohio,
or Illinois. The servant girls must be con
lent for once to forego their little prefer
ences, hard as It is for Biddy to meet with
denial The Yah andigL amere of Ohio will

paramount want of this Government

citizens stand up squarely to the support
of the Government, Cease from the discus
sion of schemes that are bounty on skulk
ers, and for the protection of stay-at-home
fmeaks. Drop the monstrous Idea of ma
king tax-payers bleed in stupendous sums
for the sole purpose of embarrassing and
Weakening theKational Administration.

cccdcd time far to a degree that has made
ns the marvel of nations, but no man be
lieves that volunteering can longer be re
lied on. It is the only safe system, since
it is the only one which calls into the field
loyal and lukewarm alike, and offers no
premium on the latter by allowing the
Tin willing to stay at home. The Govern
ment is beset with appeals, .threats, mis
representations, exaggerations, and state
ments of facts with which it is sought to"
banicade its sole path of duty and safety.
Let every man who loves his conntiy stand
by the Government now, strengthen its
hands, be ready ,to rally to its call. If
this is done, the last bonrsof the rebellion
are entered upon, and the day of a rescued
and reunited country is near at hand.
IDE FBEN’CH-.UEXICAN .ASPECT.
The plot thickens. The leading figures
begin to stand out more clearly. The
schemes of the Emperor, with reference to
the foothold he has gained on this conti
nent, are looming into larger proportions,
.interlocking with the -plots of our home
rebels. Despairing of a recognition
abroad, and seeing their cause here gro w
ing daily more desperate, the rebel emissa
ries In Europe are pressing eagerly and
anxiously* for an alliance with France, to
further the purposes of both these high
contracting parties. There is a strong
probability that this result will be reached.
France wishes to permanently establish
herself in Mexico. The rebel leaders are
entirely willing to witness such an event,
if it can but become the prop ol their fail
ing fortunes, and wc shall probably not
long hence discover that Sliddl and his
accomplices have actually struck hands
with Napoleon on the bargain.
The course of our Government is plain
in the matter. The Monroe doctrine, to
which we have so long adhered, we shall
not now desert It will remain our na
tional policy that no European power shall
establish itself on this, continent Only
our own domestic difficulties would have
held us silent thus far, while the French
army was carrying on its Mexican cam
paigns. And it is probable that nothing
but our borne rebellion could have offered
Napoleon his coveted opportunity of em
barking in that undertaking, and so far in
dulged him in the same. Our Government
will hare more than a single word to say
in the matter, in due time, and will take
up the expulsion in earnest
It can set about it even more directly
if France places herself alongside our
rebels, and links her venture with their
failing fortunes, bringing both into the
. same line of fire. ’ The entire force of this
Government is being mustered for the
finishing of this rebellion, and when the
two sections are again reunited, there is
nothing that will more conduce to secur
ing a fine welding glow ofpatriotism than
a rigorous foreign war, waged in behalf of
sound and just national principles. France
may offer us that opportunity. She may
force it upon us, for it will not be optional
if the present assets of her Mexican
scheme are realized. A limit will be set
to her operations in Mexico that will fall
far short of her permanent establishment
of French power on that soiL

- A great scare has fallen upon the Copper
heads, and joj proportionate has visited the
loyal men of lowa, at the descent of the
threatened blow npon our home traitors, for
whom such an event has been for some time
past preparing. Boring its late session is
this city, the Grand Jury of the United States
Circuit Court, before whom the matter was
brought by our energetic United States Dis
trict Attorney, found numerous Indictments
against our homo traitors under the late law
of Congress covering such cases. They had
formed associations.pledged to resist the
’ d:aff. They had become blatant in their dis
loyalty, and open in their defiance of the Gov
ernment. Itroon transpired that the Court
bad Ibis fifing in hand, though nothing was
kiown outside, as lo who were to be the par
ties principally interested.
This made the Coppeiheads bolder than
ever, to judge from their increased vehemence
intone, though it is more thansuspected
they were “whistling aloud to keep their
courage up” like the schoolboy In the grave
j crd. They asserted that it would be death
for any Federal officer to go down into thy
II fee tod districts and arrest these men. They*
vapored, and threatened until oven loyal men
began to dread the event, and deprecate such
causes of irritation. TV ell the thing is over,
and nobody hurt, Somebody would have
been hurt had any obstacle beenoffered to the
process.
United States Marshal Eoxie has Just ar
rived here, having in custody the following

A portion of these arrests were made at
Oshaloosa, and three of the above at Ottum
wa, These * ere Squire Powell, A. J. Eeden
baugh and J. H. D. Street. Their friends in
the filth delivered to the Copperheads bad
sworn to stand by them, and Marshal Hoxie
was assured that he had better hriug down a
metallic burial case with him to Ottumwa, if
he had any derire to have his remains sent
home in good order. He took down a me
tallic case with-six chambers, every one of
. which would have been sore cause for burial
to a Copperhead, had any such opposed him.
The arrests at Ottumwa were made at lour
o'clock p. in., on Wednesday, and the threat
was made that on the next morning Marshal
lloxic would find It imxmssible to take Ms
prisoners away by the train. He settled the
matter by conveying his prisoners out of
town by night in a carriage.
Mr. Hoile and his assistants approached
Ofkaloosa on his way here. They were met
by deputations of Union men, and warned
tbut elicits would be made iu Oskaloosa to
rescue the prisoners. The U. S. officers,
however, proceeded in accordance with their
original purpose, and were not molested.
Hie Copperheads knew very well that the U.

cartridges, fhe should have occasion to
shoot.

way for it. Loyal men arc delighted to wit

THE WAR !N NORTH CAROLINA
A Rebel Account of Oar Great
Cavalry Raid.
Handsome Achievements in Dam
aging the Enemy.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Washington', July St, 1863.
The following is the full text of the Peters
burg Erpreu' account. In Us yesterday’s Issue,
cf our raid into North Carolina:
From passengers who reached here yester
day morning, on the train, from Weldon, we
gather the particulars from the raid on
Bocky Mount, North Carolina. The gang
numbered between 400 and GOO, and came up
from Wushu, N. C. This is the route sap
posed to have been taken for Bocky Mount,
though about the same distance from Ply
mouth as Woshn. Either road would bring
them to Tarborongh, a flourishing little town
in Edgmmbe county, about 18 miles from
Bocky Mount, and where until recently
the government has had immense supplies of
bacon, corn, <fcc.
The raiders reached Bocky Monnt about
twelve o’clock, meeting with no resistance.
A small squad of fifteen or twenty men,
guarding a bridge over Tar Bivcr, near Bocky
Mount, of course did not risk an engagement
with such odds, but we presume retired in
good order. The enemy proceeded to bom
the depots, destroy the wafer tanks, and com
mit other acts of vandalism la the vicinity.
'They burned about 5,000 bales ot cotton be
longing chiefly to private individuals, which
had accumulated at Bocky Mount, while a
squad repaired to a large cotton factory near
. by, owned by W. S. Battle, where they ap
plied the torch, and that spacious building
with all its machinery was speedily reduced
to ath.es. This U areally serious loss to nil
that portion of the State,- as well as on the
ioath side (Virginia.) Avery large quantity
of tbe cotton y orn made at this factory was
purchased by the people of eastern Carolina
and south side (Virginia), who since the war
have been largely engaged in manufacturing
clothing for home consumption.
The regular 'mail train- for Wilmington
passed just thirty minutes before the arrival
cf the raiders, and thus made a narrow escape
from capture. The train on the Tarborongh
branch of the 'Wilmington road, was not so
fortunate. It was captured by the raiders,
and two car loads of ammunition, and over
30,000 pounds of bacon were destroyed. They
also attempted to destroy the cars and loco
motive, but only partially succeeded in this
latter part of their undertaking.
The train from Weldon, which reached here
yesterday afternoon, brought no intelligence
luterthan the above. Travel and telegraph
communication between Weldon and Wil
mington are now interrupted, and we can find
no one who is able to inform us when they
will be resumed.
A military force sufficiently large to prevent
the repetition of the destruction effected on
Monday, is now at hand, but unfortunately
they are just In time to be too late. The dam
age has been done.
The bridge destroyed by the raiders span
ned the Tar River but a Short distance from
Hocky Mount. It was & most substantial
structure some 300 yards in length. The
track for a distance of a mile or two was tom
up, and other damage effected which it will
require a week or more to repair. Travel it
is thought will be suspended for six or eight
days. It is understood that the raiders have
only iallen back to Torborongh, distance
from Bocky Mount about eighteen .miles. If
allowed to remain at Torborough it will be
time thrown away to repair the Wilmington
and Weldon Railroad, for the Yankee cavalry
will be enabled to reach It in two hours time
whenever they feel so disposed, and so des
troy the v ** —-i
who Is now in mat direction, will quickly
clean the invade out of Tarborough.
Fortress Monroe, July 24.—The Fed

. A distinguished statesman and : extcnslve
slaveholder in the interior of North Carolina;
who has been an antl-slavery-nitm since the
ftret rebel gun was *ffred Into .Fort Sumter,
has written an elaborate work, entitled “Sla
very and the Rebellion,” which is on Us wav
to the publisher In New York. The cmlacnt
author says “that slavery will not be materi
ally iujund bj the war, but will come out of
the ordeal stronger than ever, and satisfy the
world that State aud municipal laws, sustain
ed by the religious training of the Southern
arc more than a match for the preju
clccs of the world. A standing army of half a
million cf men, in the acceptance by the
South of gradual emancipation, is the only
intthcd that will check its growth or cause
Us extinction, neither of which the Adminis
tration at Washington will deem it necessary
to enforce. Hence slavery will be all the
stronger for the war."

The Buckeyes Following Him
Sharply.
A SETT OF FOR COL. STREIGHT’S
MEN.
[Special Dispatch to the ChlcagoTribunc.3
Cincinnati, July 21, 1801.
At last advices received at headquarters,
Morgan was at Antrim, Guernsey county,
where he stopped to rest his men. Our forces
were only a short distance in his rear.
The general impression here Is that Morgan
will make for the Ohio River, near Wheeling.
Antrim is so situated that he can as easily
make for Steubenville as Wheeling. The lat
ter place is well fortified, which may probably
deter him from attempting a crossing there.
Hobson is only twftjniles in his rear, and It
appears improbable that he can escape.
Seven boats have arrived, bringing
prisoners from Pomeroy. Gen. Judah and
his staff also came down with them, and it is
probable that all Morgan’s ©ulcers captured,
will be kept in close confinement on John
son's Island, and held as hostages for Colonel
Straights men, who were captured in Georgia,
In the celebrated raid in that State.

THE WAR IN VIRGINIA.
The Positions of Meade
and Lee..
WHAT THE WASHINGTON PA-
PEES SAY.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago TribarvST}
Washington, July 21, *;SS.
This evening’s Republican contains Unrfol
lowing:
The impression that Meade: and Lee areJ
lying with their armies along the western"
banks of the upper jPotomac/watchlng each
other, and that the headquarters of General ;
Meade are at Harper’s Ferry, or in that regfdii*
Is a decided mistake. Both armies are active-,
and Meade is where he can strike Lee a blow
when he pleases.
A battle Is likely to occur at any moment.
’ On the same subject thus evening’sAfor has
the following; ’ •
,‘.‘.We apprehend ihcrc-can now be no little---
doubt! that on Saturday, morning last Lee
c'-mmecct d to hK.ve his army np the yirglnU
valky from the position Ithad oconpicd since*
the ririog of the Potomac. He had previously
mode a feint to crosb the* Potomac by sending
Ewell’s corps up towards Cumberland. It is
picsumcd ho regarded the movements of
.Mesde’s army ? which bus been by no means
Idle of late, as making if necessary for him to
hurry off, for the protection of his commuai*
cations with Richmond.
TYe feel very sure Meade has those commu
nications already 'at his mercy,. where and
how it is not proper that wc should state.
At any rate wemoy hot,improperly say that
Meade is demonstrating that all apprehension
of tardiness on his part Is entirely groundless.
Lee’s advance U repretented to have been
at Strasbnrg on the day before yesterday and
we trust, as wo believe, that his whole fiank
is being daily felt by Meade’s cavalry, so that
all Lia movements are immediately known
aud provided against.
To these statement of local papers it need
only be added that there is a plentiful Lick of
knowledge as to army movements on either
side, and that the deficiency is being supple
mented by the vaguest rumors.
Washington, July 24 —lt has been defi
nitely ascertained that Lee’s main army is at
or near Winchester. He has made no gene
ral advance down the volley.
The N. Y. Herat#9 Washington special says:
From the relative situations of the armies
in Virginia to-day as nearly as understood
here, it Is apparent that Gen. Meade has the
i cbel army of Lee completely entrapped. He
is evidently massing his forces to break his
way to Richmond, but will probably find it a
more different undertaking than the one at
Gettysburg. After all the delay there is now
cot much prospect of Lee bclug able to get
his army back to Richmond, or even so far
os the upper end of the Shenandoah Valley.
A special to the Philadelphia Inquirer, dated
Chambcrsburg, Fa., 23d. says:
The enemy, except his cavalry scouts, aban
doned HedgcsviUc yesterday. ‘ Part of Ewell’s
corps, with 10 cannon, full back towards Mar
tlmbnrg. It is reported that tbe enemy
crossed a cavalry force at Hancock this fuie
noon.
It is stated that water will be re-admUtcd
into a portion of the Chesapeake and Ohio
Cacal this week.
Lee left Winchester with his staff yesterday
morning, in the direction cf Mlddleburg and
Strasburg. His heaviest force is now in and
around Winchester. He has been reinforced
from Lower Virginia and North Carolina,
by a repotted foice of 10,000, under D. XL
Hill.

The draft is progressing quietly without a

disposition Is here, hut there has been another
disposition (of troops) which has counteract

THE ASPECTIX THE SOUTH
WEST,
TUeßcault of Our Late Victories.
[N. O. Correspondence of N. Y. Herald.]
, New Orleans, July 15,1853.
Every effort will be made by General Banks
to recover possession ofßrasbier City ami
the Opelousas railroad. The division of Gen.
Grover, composed of Dudley’s and Weltzel’a
brigades, are in advance from Donaldsonville,
and the enemy have fallen back beyond Bayou
La Fonrche. We had an affair with them day
before yesterday, in which we lost one hun
dred and fiflymen and three pieces of artil
lery. This, however, amounts to nothing.
It will not affect the ultimate result, viz.: the
re occupation of all the Attakapas country.
1 have not the least doubt now, from the
course that events are taking, that wo will la.
a very short time be in quiet possession not
ouly of Louisiana, bnt Mississippi also.
The fall of Mobile, and with it Fort Mor
gan, must occur in a very few days. There
is nothing to prevent General Grant from
marching directly on Montgomery, Ala., and
in that manner cutting ou Mobile from all
'communication with the balance of the so
called Confederacy. The Confederate army
will be driven into the Carollnas; Alabama
will share the fate of Louisiana and Mississ
ippi, and Georgia also. The movements of
our armies have only to be made with rapidity
and the rebellion will be at an end by the first
of Octobor, if not sooner. It is most singu
lar, the important change that has occurred
between the let and Bth of July. Befora that
lime everything looked dark and gloomy;
now everything everywhere seems to say that
we are to be successful. The fall of Vicks
burg—-the greatest blow yet struck against
the rebellion —occurred on the 4th of July.
Gould anything be more ominous V and the
other great victories within a few daysot that
(hue. God now favors us. He is helping us
in eveiy way. Let us see that we help .our
selves.
It is supposed Fort Hudson will be strong
ly garrisoned, and in part by the corps d*
Afnque of Brigadier General Ullman. If Ibis
is the case, It will be a cause for congratula
tion, for it will remove General Ullman and
staff from the temptations of a large city like
New Orleans, and enable them to learn some
thing of their duties in the field and in heavy
artillery practice, both of which the General
and staff are sadly deficient in. Although
Fort Hudson has the reputation of being one
of the moat unhealthy portions of Louisiana,
I am under the impression it only became so
because the Yankee troops were investing it.
It is high ground, with a fine rolling country.
In the rear, well wooded, and when there is
a breeze it can always be found there; conse
quently I think it would not be a bad place
for our Invalid soldiprs this summer, We
might have large tcMporary hospitals erected
that would be tar preferable to keeping men
confined in a small room, within the hot, un
.vrUaUsome atmosphere of a large city. It is
worth the ww, at all events, even as late in
the season as it now Is.
A movement will be mode hr the squadron,
iu a few days that wQi lead to important re
sults. lam not at liberty to hint even as to
the direction it will take. It Is sufficient for
the public to know that Admiral Farragnt will'
command is person, and when that is toe case
fighting may be expected. We are in hopes
that Admiral D. Porter will assume command
of the entire Mississippi river. Bis fleetis

A Bold and Admirable Statement
[From the Nashville Preaal}
Nashville, Team, July 15,1963.
Eds Press— lt is supposed by some that.
| H nhaps, some important movements will
E ot vn be mode npon the great military chess
board* looking to the occupancy of East Tea
ness ee, as some think; in which opinion I do
notVoncur. My hopes and wishes in that re
spect been blasted so often that I will
not expectations in advance ofactnal
demone tisations going to effect the object we
have in Ylew. The occupation of Chat
.tanooga fa the shortest possible time,
In my jnd, "?ment, is a matter of the first im
portance u' the. Government, for several rea
sons: First, becanso.now is perhaps the most
favorable o[ 'portunity we may ever have—a
portion ofßr. agg’s forces having gone down
to Mississippi, a portion to Atlanta, Georgia;
and Charleston, and the remainder being di
vided in small parcels in different parts of
East Tennessee, protecting the railroads and
the mountain passes; Before they can again
concentrate, it is oS the utmost importance
that a few strategic point? should bo seized
and held at all hazards,, so as to protect an
advance of a force sufficient .to occapy and
defend the whole country. A£tdnby on early
And vigorous advance .of- oar forces wo can
se cure the present wheat crop* East Ten
nessee, which will be sufficient, A\»m what we
learn, to support an army of 100,30,0 men.
Secondly. By taking Feet Tcan easeo, our
prats can be so arranged that hall .the num
ber of troops can protect flunks anti, rear bet
ter fhaa our whole force con now pnotcct its
present line of operations. This may sound
strange to those not acquainted with the
donntry, but it is susceptible of perfect dem
onstration. By taking Chattanoog awe can
have the Tennessee River to ofd'in bringing
up supplier as well as use it as a barrier
against the advance of an army.- It .can be
made a perfect barrier by the removal of the
boats.-
Having-possession of Chattanooga, the riv
er wIU» be a* perfect protection to oirr right
Hank,, a small force being stationed at. Deca
tur, .Alabama, and Bridgeport, to prevent the
entmj: from crossing at those points,* thejfr
remains to be protected an open country
only thirty-live miles, to the chain oriaoun
tains on thetasf, which are fifty limes more
difficult- to cross than our present line, the
: Cumberland Mountains. To ray recoliestfnn,
there are not more than three places frora tUe
Georgia State line to the Virginia line that an
array with artillery aud sufficient transporta
tion could pass from the South Into East Ten
nessee, to wit; Down the Ocoee River, hi
Polk county;, down the French Broad River,
by Warm Springs, and the route from. Jeffer
son, North Carolina, to Elizabethtown, la
Johoson county, Tennessee. Either of these
routes, however, can be defended by one
thousand men so effectually that fifty thou
eniid couldnot force a passage through the n.
These are stubborn facts, not imaginary
statements. -
Then, to sum up the statement In tangi
ble form, we may ss&ly set down that a force
of 1,000 men at Decatur, and a like number
at Bridgeport, with the proper artillery force,
can defend these places against the advance
of on enemy, and if the river should he kept
clear of ferry-boats and transportation, will
pcrlcctly protect that entire line. From
Chattanooga to the Frog Mountain, thirty
live miles, there is a succession of ridges and
b> rong positions in a high, healthy anil beau
tiful country, which being possessed by our
forces, can be defended- against an advance of
ten times our number. 20,000 men with ar
tillery can dcfi-nd that entire line against al
most any force that can be brought against it.
11.000 more, placed-'at the three mountain
passes before referred to, make, in all,-25,000
men to guard a line of defense extending
from Decatur, Ala, to tho Virginia line. .
The only question remaining in the very
serious question of supplies, which our Gen
erals unfortunately are eternally looking
back to Uncle Bam for. ‘When examined by
the light of facts and figures, this is no ques
tion at all. Take the first two counties, for
Instance, on the Georgia line, Bradley and
Hamilton. Each of them can and will grow
and sell 200,000 bushels of wheat yearly, on
an average. From the shipping register
Bradley has been known to sell oOU.OOO bush
els in one year, and Hamilton has exceeded
that. Ttahty-onc counties of Fust Ten
nessee will produce for sale an average of
100.000 bushels of wheat •in ordinary tunes,
but making proper deductions fur the absence
of laborers, we may set down as a sate esti
mate that they will produce for sale 30,000
bushels to the county. Thus wc have the
sum of 1,500,000 bushels Ot wheat, nnS the
com crop will greatly excel that amount y «>
that for bread we need hare no fears. As to
the supplies of meats, we cannot state with
any degree of assurance, and cancotjpromlse
at present that we will find the necessary sup
plies there, although scouts assure ns that
considerable quantities of beef cattle are
grazing In the Cumberland and Frog Moun
tains. Enough, however, may be had, beyond
all doubt, to support an army sufficient to de
feud the country, until its supplies can be
brought from Kentucky. We uuy safely set
down, as a fact which cannot be denied, that
those Ibirty-one counties of Fast Tennessee
have supported 200,000 of the rebel army du
ring tho whole war, and without It they can
rot keep an army of 100,000 men in the field.
If let alone the rebels will take out the entire
wheat crop of East Tennessee to the South,*
and have it ground np at Atlanta and Augus
ta and Cleveland mills, and thereby obtain
subsistancc foranothcryear. Whereas, if that
country can be taken now, and secure her
splendid wheat crops for our army, tho rebels
will be compelled to disband their army for
want of supplies.
In this Statement I have not spoken of
the great satisfaction and extreme delight it
would afford the 230,000 loyal men, and wo
men, and children of Fust Tennessee, who
are looking and expecting oar advent with a
faith and devotion which no circumstances
can shake or alter.
No; nor have I spoken of the great joy it
would afford the thousands of East Tennes
see soldiers now in this army whose hearts
are bleeding for an opportunity to march
back to their fatherland. These things are
not mentioned as an argument, for the rea
son that they have been too often urged and
disregarded, and, it may be, properly disre
garded. For I am not one of those who blame
the Government with all the ills that afflict
us. There may have existed good reasons
heretofore, for not going to East Tennessee,
but those reasons do not exist now. The
question of supplies should not be entertain
ed by our Generals, when the people are beg
ging us to come and take their wheat crop
for nothing, rather than sell it to the rebel
army.
I Jim satisfied perfectly that if East Ten
nessee can and does support a rebel army of
200,000 men, it con and will support a Union
army of a like amount.
But the great fact that 1 desire to call at
tention to is, that by occupying East Tennes
see, we actually diminish the number of ac
cessible points to our rear, and consequently
a smaller amount of troops will be required to
guard our fionks, and increase the enemy’s
chances for supplies and augment our own
strength by additions from East Tennessee
and North Carolina, and also supply ourselves
and protect the loyal people of East Tennes
see from further depredations.
These reasons hastily thrown together,
are seriously urged for a forward movement,
by an East Tennesseean.”

ABMV or THE POTOJUC’.
X Retrospect—General HoolcorM Re
moval imil its Causes.
(Correspondence of the New York Times.)
Fsedebics, hid., Monday, July 20, IS-tt.
A brief retrospective glance at the doings
of the Army of the Potomac, daring its late
arduous campaign, not be the most un
interesting reading lor these hot days.
The first ten days of Lee’s invasion was a
mere,/n«t—a mere diversion—in the hope of
seeing Hooker’s army swiftly rash northward
into Pennsylvania to stop the ravages ci one
.small division, while the mass of the rebel
army, passing suddenly down to Leesburg,
could, m less Than one day’s march cross the
Potomac at Nolan’s Ford, aod place itself be
- tween the national army and Washington.
There is no feature of the campaign more
poalUvethan this; and Lee was completely
out generaled in its attempted execution. And
yet the General commanding the army of the
Potomac at that time has bem abated bc
canss he did not obey the behests of every
frightened farmer In Pennsylvania-, and rush
to the protection of barnyards and stables.
■When Lee had filled to 1 Induce Hooker to
uncover Washington, he lost no time In push
ing forward Into Maryland. It is equally true
of Hooker that he lost no time in pursuit.
Withdrawing his army speedily from its fm
liko position in front of Washington, he
crossed the river by the pontoon bridges at
Edward’s Ferry, and iu two days placid it m
the vicinity of Frederick, :m average distance
of fifty two miles. At Frederick, Gen. Hook
er’s career as Commander of the army of the
Potomac came to a sudden termination.
Ido not know that the circumstances re
sulting in Gen. Hooker’s removal have ever
been given to the public.. Being able .to state
them precisely,. I will give them briefly;-
From the- time of leaving Fredericksburg
Gen. Hooker had been acting under a strict
letter of Instructions from Gen. IXallcck, and
was reporting to tbs latter daily. The letter
of instructions ordered Gen. Hooker to cover
: Washington at all times, and when the pass
age of our army into Maryland became a fixed
Jact, Maryland Heights was also added as a
i point to be covered and? protected, and GeneraT
'Hooker was authorized* to assume command
of any troops that ho might find in any de
partment wherein he was temporarily posted,
including the garrison ostexz thousand men at
Mainland Heights.
When leaving Fairfax Ccnrt House for
•Frederick, 6(e. Hooker*nslwd if there were
any serious objections to:&baudoning the posi
tion-at? the hc-Ighta temporarily, and adding
the troops to his army, ivfrh which to pawns
imd fight Lee. He then proceeded from Ed
wards Ferry, accompanied by Gen. Warren,
Chief Engineer, to Inspect:' the position m
person; and determine upoerfits value. TJoou
arriving atthe Heights a dispatch was‘re
ceived from Gen. HkUeck, announcing, In
substance, that the position und property at
that point were too valuable to be abandoned,
save In the last extremity. Btrt, upon exam
ination of the point, and obtaining, the opin
ions of Gens. French and Warren, who- coin
cided with-him strongly, Gen. Hooker was so
convinced of-the inutility of maintaining a
large garrison force at a-point likely to be
come isolated, and was so sure that.’upon ex
planation, Gen. Holleck would agree-with
him, that he at onec gave the order for the
abandonment of the position, the troops- to
march to Frederick and Join his army. He
then telegraphed his action to Gee. Halleek,
giving his reasons at length. Tue response
was a still more peremptory order not to
abandon the position. Gen. Hooker, being
thus deprived of a much needed reinforce
ment of ten thousand excellent troops,, mid
being, in addition,.required to father the re
sults ofa campaign whose plan was not his
own, respectfully asked to be relieved from
command, if his instructions could not be
modified, remarking that It was not Inhis
power, nor the power of any other General,
to do what was required of him with bis lim
ited force, and t-UQ be auccesslal in the main
object of pursuing and defeating the rebel
army.
The President acceded to the request of
Gen. Hooker, and with the order assigning
Gen. Meade to command came & discretionary
power from Gen. HuUeck, authorizing the
commanding General to abandon Maryland
Heights or not, just as he saw fit.
These are the precise circumstances attend*
irg the removal of Gen. Hooker, which jras,
and perhaps still Ib, shrouded wIJx much
mystery.
Gen. Hooker tool: leave without any show
or formality, save a feeling address to his
staiC ana Geu Meade stepyrni into command,
and found everything so well matured for im.
mediate action that ho was enabled to move
on without on hoar’s delay. The next day
the army was lu motion and the march
es which were planned by' Gen. Butterfield,
were made with the same degree of vigor and
promptness which had previously character
ized them.
The various corps moved by several diverg
ent rentes from Frederick, the coarse of the
left wing being due north, while the center
andlcft wing deflected to the eastward soon
placing a large force between, the enemy and
Baltimore. On Wednesday, July !, the left
wing, under Gen. Reynolds, reached Gettys
burg, and then began the conflict which for
three days raged so furiously, and ILially re
sulted eo successfully to _lhe .national arms.
The history of these battles, and the subse
quent march to the Potomac, is yet fresh in
the minds ofjthe people, and needs no reitera
tion here.

We desire to re-publlsh prominently the
fact that the Government has decided, la Gen
eral Order No. 210, that all able-bodied men
between eighteen and forty-five years of age,
who have heretofore been enlisted and have
served for not less than nine months, who
have been honorably discharged and can .pass'
the examination required by the mustering
regulations of the United States, may be en
listed in any regiment they choose, new or
old, and when mustered into the United
States service will be entitled to the $403 pro
vided for recruiting veteran volunteers. This
$402 comprises SOOO exemption fund, SIOO
bounty, and $3 hand money. A regiment,
battalion, or company of these recruits will
bear the title of Veteran, provided half of
their number are “Veteran Volunteers. 0
The same benefit will be given to men who
enlisted prior to Order No. 101, provided the
conditions therein set forth arc fulfilled.
