TUESDAY, JULY 28. 1883.
The enemy are sorely deceived. The
Administration will not back down In
spite of the die]oval cavils, the sophisti
cal and semi-treasonable objections and
the tortuous and double-dealing policy of
Gov. Seymour; in spite of the infuriated
iowl of that bloody and brutal Irish Cath
olic mob, that found its greatest delight in
the homing of Orphan Asylums and the
braining of unarmed and unoffending ne
groes,-and if it need .be, in-spite of the
mandates of the local judges whom that
moh has home into place and power—in
spite of all these and the insensate clamor
of every Copperhead throat in the land,
the Draft will be enforced, not only in the
City and State of Mew York; but where
cvcr else the law of Congress says that it
may he operative! Depend upon that
The Government cannot recede. Its dig
nity, its authority, its power to command,
its reputation at home and abroad, its fu
- turn usefulness—all are staked on this
. issue, and to hang out the white flag now
■ in the face of the opposition that challenges
the exercise of its power and defies the
penalties that it may exact, would be to
gay that Anarchy had deposed Authority,
and that political Chaos had come again.
It must not be so weak. It must not sac
rifice the hopes and mar the destiny of
tins great nation for a fear so unworthy of
those who rule a brave and a free people
fear of a weak and disloyal faction that is
hold only because it has never been awed
into obedience and silence!
The law is no partisan enactment arising
out of the exigencies of political strife. It
is akm to neither the Fugitive Slave Law,
nor any other of the atrocious enactments
to which bad government has given rise.
It has its foundation, its exense, and its
abundant justification in a profound and
overwhelming national necessity, the im
minence of which all men see. It is an
expression, in legal phrase, of that which
this Republic must do to live. And wo be
unto that Administration, wo be unto that
man or that party which will not, fur the
nation’s sake, hear and obey.
The law will be executed in New Tort:
Thirty thousand Federal bayonets wielded
by stalwart arms that tecl tie impulses of
loyal hearts, may and will enforce the les-
son which a corrupt and howling local Ju
diciary, a Pecksniflian Governor, who, be
tween his cantings and sniffings, finds
time to plot with men of iniquity and of
blood, a “venerable prelate,” one and single,
allthefollowcrsand adherents of these seem
to need—a lesson which says that the Con
stitution, the Congress and the President of
the United States are superior to all Justices
of the Peace, to the commanders of State
militia, and even to the prayers and genu
flexions of a priesthood that is respectable
only because it is old, and of a laity that
is to be pitied only because it is unenlight
The draft will be enforced, and with the
ecrdial approbation, and if necessary, the
armed assistance of tens of thousands of
men who’ have, heretofore, some from one
and some from another excuse, stood aloof
from co-operative effort in the loyal cause.
The mask has fallen off; Copperhcadlsm
is stripped of its disguises; and the infer-
nal ludeousness of its meaning is traced
- on every paving stone m New York. Men
who have censured the Government for
, its Emancipation Proclamation, or for its
seeming tardiness and indecision, or for its
alleged violation of private right, know
[ and led, with bitter and unavailing regret,
the pemiciousnesE of the influence that they
have exerted, and all over the land they
are dedaring their regret for the past, and
' making and registering sincere vows for a
wiser and better, and a more patriotic
course in the future. They say, “We have
■“ always been loyal after our fahions. We
“ have never failed to hope that the rebd
“ Kon might be put down. But we ques
•“ Honed the wisdom, the patriotism and
“ the necessity of the way in which it was

" “ professions of those who were
“ our oracles and spokesmen, and
“ though we have not remonstrated
“when they carried criticism to such an
“ extent that it was “ aid and comfort ” to
“the enemy, we see how utterly we

“malignant our leaders are, and how
. “incumbent it is upon all men who desire
'“reunion and an honorable peace, to make
“the cause of the Government their cause,
“ and the honor of its armies their honor.
“Henceforth we are for the Administra
“tion. Forgiving what we cannot ap
prove, to all its efforts directed to the one
“great purpose, we diall be true!” We
knew it would be so. It is sad that, in
tins day, the deposition of authority in
the chief commercial city of the land, the
ciy of innocent and defenceless men suf
fering death m its most horrifying shape
at the hands of the many-headed monster
that Copperheadism evoked.to doits work,
the burning of an Orphan Asylum, the
pillaging of private houses, and the inaug
uration of the Empire of Hell upon earth,
should be necessary to arouse American
citizens to a consciousness of their errors
and to a resolve to do their
duty to an imperilled countiy.
But it did exist, and as much as we may
deplore the sickening scenes which logi
cally followed upon its heels, we may
thank Heaven that the result of all is the
intensification of the patriotic spirit among
the people, the reinforcement of the power
of the Government, and the shame and
confusion of these Horthem traitors who
have conspired against it 1
Our readers may, we take it, dismiss all
their fears in relation to the final success
of our army under General Gilmore, now
lay imr siege to Charleston. If we have a
correct idea of the situation, the fell of
Port Wagner—the main obstacle to suc
cess—is as certain as any other event de
pending upon human action. It Is so in
vested that not a man can get out; and our
batteries and gunboats will take especial
care that not an additional enemy gets in.
General Gilmore is an accomplished, and
we believe an earnest officer; he is assisted
by some of the best talent In the service;
and neither the General nor his subordi
nates have any fear of failure. The tri
umph may cost time, as did the reduction
of Vicksburg; but, like that conquered
city, the place Is doomed to fell
Our correspondent at Niagara, whose
account is undoubtedly truthful, tells the
reader, in another column, that even such
Copperheads as Hendricks of Indiana, are
getting unwilling to be thought sharers of
the sentiments that Yallandigham has ex
pressed. Nothing more likely. An
other month of victories for the
Union 1 arms would cause even the
Chicago * organ of Jeff Davis to
turn tail on the martyr, and perhaps to
open a fire on his rear. And as soon as it
, is entirely certain that secession has had its
day, there is not a Copperhead in all the
land who will not clamor to have Yal*s sen
tence of banishment changed to hanging.
That’s the nature of the beast!

TVhat with Schofield at SL Louis, and
Guitar in Northern Missouri, arresting
Union clergymen and editors, Missouri is
rapidly drifting into the terrible condition
she was in two years ago. Has not that
State been sufficiently cursed with the evils
ot war, to be spared the worse evils of Cop
perhead Generals?
Since that mob saluted Gen. McClellan
at his own door, in Mew York, with this
unwholesome greeting—"Three cheers for
Jeff Davis and Little Mac!’’ his most de
voted friends have hardly mentioned his
name. Mobs sometimes kill by kindness
as well as by blows; and if “Little Mao"
were notdead before, this mob wouldhave
given him a coup de main.
t£T History has recorded the fate' that
overtook the Tories who opposed the Union
during the Revolution, and what become
of the Federal party who opposed the Un
ion in the war of 1813-5, and history will
record the late of the still more infamous
Copperhead party during the slaveholder’s
great rebellion. As the crime of that latter
isgreaterthan that committed by either the
Tories or Federals, so will the execra
tions of posterity be hotter and heavier
against them.
It was one of the significant features
of the Copperhead riot in Mew York
that the cheers given by the mob, were in
variably for Jeff Davis, Gen. McClellan
and C. L. Yallandigham, who seemed to
constitute the earthly trinity whom the
murderous miscreants worshipped. It was
in their name they burned, robbed and
Death of Hon. John J. Crittenden.
The telegraph brings us the information
that Hon. John J. Crittenden died at Frank
fort, Ky., on Sunday morning, the. 36th Inst.,
of general debility.
John Jat Chittenden -was bom in Wood
ford county, Ky., about the year ITSS, He
commenced life as a lawyer in Hopkinsville,
but soon removed to Franklort, where he es
tablished a large practice. In 1810 ho was
elected to the Kentucky House of Represen
tatives, of ■which he was lor several years
Speaker.’He took his seat in the United States
Senate December Ist, 1817, his term com
mencing at the same date with the Presiden
tial term of Monroe, whom he supported.
From 1619 to 1835 Mr, Crittenden practised
law at Frankfort. Adams nominated him
Judge ol the United States Supreme Court iu
1628, but the Senate rinsed to conflrmhlm,
and Mr. McLean was put in his place. In
1835 he was again chosen United Slates Sena
tor, served a lull term, and was re-elected, hut
resigned in 1841, having accepted the Attor
ney Generalship under Harrison.
On September 11th, of the same year, he
tendered his resignation to Tyler, and was
immediately elected to the Senate for the res
idue of Clay’s term, and was re-elected for a
full term from March 4th, 1813. In 1843 he
was elected Governor of Kentucky by the
Whigs. He was Attorney General in Fill
more’s Cabinet from 1850 till the accession of
Pierce. In 1854 he undertook the defense iu
the memorable Ward case—the murder of
Prof Butler in his school at Louisville. He
had previously been re-elected to the United
States Senate fer a term which expired in 180 L
Among the measures which he favored were
the tariff of 1843, the United States Bank,
and the smallest ratio of representation in the
1842 apportionment. He opposed the tariff
of 1846, the Sub Treasury system, Calhoun’s
bill empowering postmasters to take from the
mail documents hostile to slavery, the remis
sion of General Jackson’s fine, the annexa
tion of Texas, the military occupation of Yu
catan, the admission of Kansas under the
Topeka Constitution in 1856, and under the
Lccompton Constitution in 185 S. At the
owning of the second session of the Thirty-
Sixth Congress, Dec. Bd, 1860, during the de
bate on the President’s Message, he offered
the well known “ Compromise Measures ” as
a sop to the half fledged rebels. Mr. Crit
tenden, on account of his age, was called the
patriarch of the Senate. He was a calm, pol
luted speaker, rarely descending to personali
ties, or allowing himself to become acrimoni
ous, and withal wesan excellent debater. la ;
his political life, he was the idol of the Whigs,
and enjoyed the frvors of the Kentucky
branch of that party to an almost unlimited
extent, which frvors be rewarded byastudi*
ons devotion to their interests. Daring the
past two years, he has not taken active part
! upon the question of the rebellion, pro or con,
his Interest seemingly having subsided with
the rejection of his compromise measures.
'Hs conservatism had so restrained him tbnt
i- e present age was lor in his advance in the
great march of human progress,and it may hare
been this fret, coupled with his reticence, that
gave rise to the suspicion that his affinities
were with the rebels. It is certain, however,
that all his plans and measures were devised
for the preservation of the Union, although at
the cost of national honor and human liberty.
His speech upon the acceptance of his re
nomination to Congress, last spring, indica
ted a change in his conservative views, and
was more outspoken for a vigorous prosecu
tion of the war tbafi any of his former enun

Blorgan’* Copperhead Allies,
An officer in command of Hobson’s advance
during the late chase after Morgan states that
in several places the friends of Vallandigham
mistook his troops for rebels, and, under thty
delusion, gave full expression to their senti
ments, offering to famish him guides, sup
plying him with subsistence, and pointing
out the fet -Lincoln!tea that they wished to
have robbed or killed. It is the universal tes
timony that Morgan would have been defeated
and captured long before the fight at Buffing
ton bat for information derived from Copper
head spies. There is abundant evidence also
that the feeling of the Copperheads was folly
reciprocated by Morgan’s men, though this
oid not prevent the latter from “impressing”
the pro]»crty of their friends when they could
• et a good haul.
The Cleveland Herald is informed by a re
liable Ohio officer, who was in the long “stern
chase’* after Morgan in Kentucky, Indiana
and Ohio, that the rebels cheered forVai
landlgham in all the towns through which
they passed, to the great mortification of the
loyal citizens.
fbe Belief Slilp George Griswold Cap
tured by the JPiratc Georgia. r
The rebel pirate Georgia has captured the
relief ship George Griswold, which vessel was
recently dispatched from New York with a
free cargo of provisions for the starring poor
of Ireland. The Griswold had taken In a re
turn cargo at Cardiff forCaUao, and while on
her way to the latter port wis seized by the
Georgia and bonded in the sum of one hun
dred thousand dollars. The pirate seemed to
have had some grains of conscience about de
stroying a vessel which had been engaged
upon so merciful an errand. This is indica
ted by the fact that Instead of burning they
bonded her.

From a letter from the 19th Illinois regi

was sent to Gov. Yates, and will no doubt be
approved by him.

Iviaoaka Fau.B, ( Clifton House.) i
July 33,1553. f
The great Banished, with Dick Merrick and
Daniel Webster VoorLees, his “right and left
bower,” still remain here, looking ont anx
iously for copperhead pilgrims from the
States, but they don't come, at least only a
few of the more seif-abased species, who have
many words of adulation, bat few ol encour
agement to the idol.
Thomas 8. Hendricks, who succeeded Gov-
Wright of Indiana, for a few weeks as United
States Senator from Indiana, and a butternut
of the “d. d." kind, came down from Indiana
a few days since, evidently for a conference
with the Great Banished; but he grew timid
and stopped on the other'side of the Falla
and only by the persistency of the two “bowl
ere,” was he induced to come over and see
this “victim of Lincoln’s tyranny," this
“alien enemy and prisoner of war," as Vailan
d-!fdbTca?s.lllmiiel£ Headricks, as I have
-aid.is an intense copperhead, and a “dlrtv
fiff {.imsrff 6 rady to publicly idem
on to our Government, on some shape, but
exactly what, circumstances may not at ores
ent develops. * 1
The news which daily reaches os here of
Federal successes In every part of Dixie, has
a very depressing effect upon the Great Ban
ithed, and the friends here who wait upon his
bidding, and they express their chagrin and
disappointment m very emphatic terms
They, in the first place, pretty thoronghlf
knocked in Die head the prophecies contained
In Vallandlpham’s address to the Copperheads
of Oh’o, wherein he says:
*‘lf this civil war is to terminate only by the
subjugation or submission of the South to force
“ d /“? VA* t/"!' ofto-.iw «*a not lice to He
the end of it. No , in another tray only am it be
hi ought to a close. Traveling a thousand miles or
more, through newly one naif the Confederate
States, and sojourning for a time at widely dlifer
tut points, I met not one man, woman or child
irho iran not rescind to }>eri*h rather than yield to
the pressure of (Federal) arms, even In the most
asperate extremity. And whatever may and must
bethe varying foi tunes of war, • • ♦ they
arc better prepared now, erery way, to make cood
their inexorable purpose than at anyj>eHod since
the beginning of tht struggle."
Now, I need not tell you that this ban’sbed
traitor, during his passage through the rebel
States, had no means whatever of ascertaining
ihe real sentiments of the people. He had no
oppoitunity of associating with the Southern
people. He was constantly in the bauds of
those most deeply and persistently committed
to the cause of the rebellion, uud being recog
nized ns a sympathizer with their cause, he
was, of course, treated by those with whom
he met to the echo of those opinions. He is
the last man to whom a Southern Union man
wcnld confide his sentiments and hopes. His
assertions are disingenuous and false, and he
knew it when he sent them forth to the world.
Equally false, also Is his statement
ibat he “did not meet a single per
son, whatever his opinions or his
station, political or private, who did not de
clare his readiness, when the war shall hare
<ta*<daud the invading annics hern withdrawn,
Tocoftrftftranddtsrt/uUicqnc&tion of reunion.”
False, 1 say, because in this sentence he seeks
• 0 convey the impression, by a Jesuitical use
of words, that the people are all In favor of a
test oration of the Lnlou, if hostilities should
be suspended. They may be willing to “con
sider and discuss the question of reunion,” if
our invading armies should be withdrawn, bnc
Mr. Vallandigbam knows, as well as you and
1 do, that under such concessions on our part,
tbese rebels would consent to no reunion which
did not thoroughly and foreverbring North
ern freemen to the fool of an arrogant slave
oligarchy. He knows, as you and 1 do, that
no terms of reunion can be successfully car
ric d into effect, except at the point of the bay
onet, and when be talks of any other he sim
ply speaks as a friend of treason, to save its
followers from the destiny which is almost
i i racy to swallow them up. I need hardly say
that the editor of evtiy Southern Journal,
when he sees this statement of Hie banished
i traitor, will stamp it as false, and the utterer
as a designing falsifier and knave.
As I have said, these Federal successes not
cnly prove him a false prophet, but they are
disastrous to his political hopes In the com
hg October campaign. The victories these
Copperheads won last fall, and the cause of
their successes, arc fresh in the memory ol all.
Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and
New York, repudiated their former political
tendencies and convictions, andyieldedto the
influence of disunionism. The groat moving
cause of this seeming revolution in public
sentiment was the proclaimed inefficiency of
the National Administration in carrying on
the war. McClellan’s fruitless, inefficient and
disastrous campaign on the Peninsula; Pope’s
defeat, by means of treachery, at Bull Run;
and the utter failure of Buell in Tennessee
uud Kentucky, In which the successes of a
whole year were lost in a few days, had given
r«n apparent hcqielessness and desponden
cy to our cause, which threw the friends of
lue Union entirely on the defensive,
and the people clamored for change; and
thus the enemies of the war and the
Union were enabled to have everv thing their
own way. There success then led them to
hope that the same damaging influences might
be marshalled to the aid of Vallandigbam at
the coming October contest. Hence the ef
forts of the Administration and the army in
the field, which have recently bcea crowned
wl'.h such abundant and hopeful success, have
erected the fond anticipations of the great
Banished and his satellites and brought them
to deep grle£ Every Federal victory is a
damaging circumstance to those men, and of
course casts a shadow upon their future.
Tills Clifton House is not so much the
headquarters of the Southern rebels, who are
100 lazy or too cowardly to stay at home and
light the “Lincoln vandals.” as it was the last
and the previous years. The Metcalfs, Mar
shalls, Sanderses,are no more seen here. Their
absence is satisfactory to the landlords, who
suffered in pocked by their presence, as they
drove all respectable Americana away; and
satisfactory to theirpatrons, of the English
and Provisional persuasion, who began to re
gard the cowards with contempt. Yet there
are a few of the kind hero now, and of course
they cordially patronize and sympathize with
Vallandlzham and bis followers. These re
grets over Federal successes are mutual and
outspoken. One #f Vallandigham’s particu
lar friends, with whom he is frequently in
close conference, formerly a resident of New
Orleans, which city he left when Butler enter
ed it, approached me to-day—l was reading
the Chicago Times , a stray copy of which I
got from a Chlcagolan—and supposing me to

And here let me say, that could the people
of Ohio see this man Vallandigham, know and
appreciate the class of men who are his chosen
associates and companions, listen to the ven
omous treason which he continually utters
against the Federal Government, they would
not only defeat his pretensions to govern the
State of Ohio, but would never allow his foot
prints within its borders. If, by any mis
chance, his success should be secured, civil
war would just as certainly devastate that
noble State as it has the State of Virginia.

Quality of Colorado Troops.
The Artists Western Expedition which re
cently left New York, has reached Colorado l
and one of the number corresponding with
the New Tork Evening Tbs/, thus gives his
impression of the Colorado troops:
Colonel Chivington—another Denver officer
who came into the maitial saddle from the
Methodist pulpit, refusing Governor Gilpin’s
offer of a chaplaincy to take the captaincy
from which he reached his present rank—in
his first campaign against fleshly foes, cut off
the whole store and baggage tram of the Tex
:>ns down upon the Arkansas, and thus prac
tically settled the question of an invasion of
Colorado at the outset by destroying the en
emy’s subsistence in a region where nothing
could be got by plunder. One of the finest
cavalry companies in cither the regular or
volunteer branch of our service, and ac
knowledged such by experts who have seen
the drill and hard fighting of picked squad
rons under Stoncman and Bigei, is that com

Death of a Celebrated Artist,
The telegraph, per Africa, brought us the
premature announcement of the death of Mr.
Macready. the actor, and he has already suf
fered the martyrdom of thousands of obltua
The name of the celebrated deceased should
have read William Mniready, artist. Wiillam
Mnlready, R. A., was one of the most esteem
ed members of the British school cf painters.
He was born at Ennis, Ireland, in 1786 and
was admitted a student of the Royal Academy
when in his fifteenth year. The subject of
his earliest works were of too high an order
of classic art to be weU suited to the devel
opment of his genius, and were soon aban
doned for those lively, humorous representa
tions of the familiar scenes of domestic life,
which have made the productions of his pen
cil so well known to Urn general .public.
Among these may he classed his “Fight In
terrupted,” (1816); “Landing a Bite,” (1819)-
“The Wolf and the Lamb.” (1820); “The first
Voyage,” (1833); “The Last In,” (1835)1
“The First Love,” (18i0); and “The Ford,”
1813. In 1840, having executed twenty de

Bcv. Charles Beecher Convicted of
TVe have heretofore noticed the ecclesiasti.
cal tiial of Key. Charles Beecher, at George
town, Mass,, for heresy. The charge against
Mr, Beecher was that he does not preach ac
coi ding to the creed of the church and the Or
thodox churches generally of New England,
specially in presenting his views of the pro
existence ol man, the condition ot souls after
eeath, the atonement and Divine sorrow.
Fourteen churches were represented iuthe
council, which was presided over by Rev. T.
W. Dwight, D. D., of Portland. The commit
tee who were deputed to draw up the report
t f the council, have presented a report which
was adopted by 10 yeas to 5 najs. We quote
a portion of the report:
The lengthy and carefully written argument
of defence given in by the pastor satisfies ns
that he docs not preach the faith of this
church and churches of our order in New En
gland, hut doctrines instead that are vitally
: nd fundamentally erroneous.
It is in evidence that much of Mr. Beecher’s
»r caching has been in accordance with the
Scriptures and with standard New England
divines. Yet this is so interwoven with
preaching of an opposite and erroneous char
acter, as dangerously, if not fitally, to neu
tralize the good effect of his teachings. With
•-ome things on these doctrines that we think
truthful, he has indulged iu much that we
consider wholly irreconcilable with the arti
cles of faith of this church, which he him
self has adopted as a member, and of
the Orthodox churches generally in New En
Thercforc we are clear and decided that the
objections of the petitioners arc well taken
and well sustained, not only by their own
witnesses, but by Mr. Beecher’s declarations
and concessions in his defence, and that the
petitioners ought, on the principle of honor
and of right, to bo relieved, and as a most
I ainful duly that we owe to Christ and his
church, we do hereby advise the termination
without delay, of the pastoral relation be
aten this church and the Rev. Charles
Kor do wc thus recommend merely that we
muy relieve the petitioners. Wc would also
relieve Mr. Betcher, who is a member ot this
(.Lurch, from the necessity imposed byhla
conscience of viola'ing his covenant with the
church, by preaching doctrines that in several
particulars are essentially variant from the
creed of the church.
A protest against this result was banded in
by Rev. B. M. Dexter, and another by Rey.
Edward Beecher, D. D., and the other three
members who voted lu the negative may for
ward theirs. It is reported that the protest
ing members ot the council all dissent
strongly fiom Rev. Mr. Beecher’s views, but
they were dissatisfied with the terms of the
“ mult.”
Copperhead Liberty of Speech.
Bow the Copperheads believe in liberty of
speech is instanced In the following brief ac
count of the treatment of one of the reporters
c.f the Cincinnati Commercial, who attended a
meeting of the butternuts to report. "We copy
bis dispatch to the Commercial:
Lancaster, Ohio, July 24.—There were
about 2,500 persons present at the Democratic
meeting to-day. There was not much enthu
siasm manifested. Speeches were made by
Pugh, Olds and Congressman Fink.
1 commenced reporting Mr. Pugh’s speech,
when a party of eight or nine butternuts ap
proached me, seized my phonographic writing
apparatus, and ordered me to leave the ground.
1 refused to go, when three of them threaten
ed to strike me. Others caught hold of me,
t-rd I was compelled to retreat before the su
perior force of the enemy. They escorted me
cut of Ihc grove in which the meeting was
being held, as insultingly as they knew how.
The matter was all arranged before hand. I
was told by Urlon men this morning that if I
«v:is seen at the meeting, I would get into
Double. As I went to the grounds, I heard
butternuts talking among themselves about
locking lor me, and making me leave the
meeting, il seen present. It was Impossible
for me to make an accurate report without at
tracting some attention, and, once observed,
the news of my presence spread rapidly
through the crowd.
I told the villains who assailed me, that I
did not thlok Mr. Pugh would object to a
faithful report of his speech, such as I intend
ed to make. They replica that Democrats
didn’t want an Abolition sheet, like the Com
nurcial, to say anything about them, and that
if I didn’t leave they would carry me out on a
rail. ' Mack.

Cutcxxesß ofa Contrabaud Scout.
A private letter from West Point, Yd., nar
ratesan exciting adventure which recently
befel a negro scout in the employ of our
10: ce?,and his shrewdness in escaping from the
< nemy. Bis name is Claiborne, and he is a
full-blooded African, with big lips, flat nose,
<fcc. He has lived m the vicinity all his life,
and Is therefore familiar with the country,
which renders him a very valuable scout. Ou
Claiborne's last trip inside the enemy’s lines,
after scouting around as much os he wished,
he picked up eight chickens and started for
comp. His road led past the house of a secesh
doctor named Roberts, who knows him, and
*ho ordered him tostop, which, of coarse,
Claiborne had no idea of doing, and kept on,
when the doctor tired on him and gave chase,'
shouting at the top of his voice. The negro
was making good time towards camp, when,
all at once no was confronted by a whole regi*,
ment of rebel soldiers, who ordered him to
bait. For a moment the scout was dumb
founded, and thought his hour had come, but
the next he sung out,
“The Yankees are coming! The Yankees
are coming!”
“Where r where 5” inquired the rebels.
“Just up In front of Ur. Roberts’ honse,iu a
piece of woods,” returned Sambo. “Ur. R.

or they’ll kill the whole of us.
“Gome in, come into camp,” said the sol
“No, no,” says the cute African, “I have
got to go down and tell the cavalry pickets,
and cant wait a second.” So off he sprang,
with a bound, running for dear life, the rebs

The Prospects of Free Labor In the
[From the N. T. Evening Post, July 2Uh.]
It Is constantly argued by the Copperhead
press, that with the destruction of slavery
will end the production oflarge crops of cot
ton blue Vulit* states, jsrea tW Mediates
of emancipation are accustomed to admit that
the crop must very small for many years to
ccme, and prices, consequently, very high.
The writer predicts a rapid increase lathe
annual crop Irom a date of two years from,
the end of the war, admitting that in the first
year or two after the war a very small crop
will he raised; and also predicts that within
ten years larger crops than were ever produc
ed In the United States will he raised.
The argument is based upon the ascertained
facts In regard to the State of Texas.
Texas possesses the best cotton land in the
country; her capacity to produce cotton is
estimated at 20,000,000 bales. Her climate is
unequalled for health. Mach the largest part
of her agriculture is performed by whites;
the cultivation of cotton, however, being the
most simple, requiring no Intelligence in the
laborers when performed on the plantation
system by large gongs under overseers, is al
most entirely earned on by slave labor.
The standard for on able-bodied negro in
Texas is ten acres of cotton audfive of corn,
the latter producing sufficient food lor him*
sell and family. The average product of cot
ton per acre is 400 pounds, giving as the sale
able product of each field hand 1,000 pounds
of cotton.
In 1800 the crop of cotton in Texas was
405,100 bales of 400 pounds each, requiring as
many acres ol land, or less than one-quarter
of one per cent, of the area of the State.
This quantity of cotton, being l-50th part
of the capacity of the State, represents twelve
and one-half per cent, of the entire crop of
the country, fifty per cent, of the consnmp*
tion of the North, and twenty percent, of the
consumption oi American cotton in England
in 1860. fa
The rude labor of a slave, with heavy, Hl
-•’npted tools, produced 4,000 pounds of cot*
•on per annum, which was worth in 1850 and
ISGO, ten cents per pound, or S4OO.
Free and Intelligent labor, using light and
well adapted tools, would double theproduct
cf the slave, provided extra assistance could
be procured in the picking season; but os
this may not be, it is unsafe to estimate the
product of a free laborer at over 0,000 pounds
per annum.
It is not believed that the price of the
small crops ot cotton raised immediately after
the war will be less than twenty-five cents
per pound.
The first crops ot the free laborer in Texas
wiU therefore, bring him in a cash income of
sl,sooptranmnn, with less hard labor than is
required to raise a crop of corn ia New Eng
lui d, and in a more healthy climate.
The average return of a slave having been
S4OO, what has been the effect upon the slave
population of Texas?
lulS5O the slave population of Texas was
58,161; In 1860 it was 182,560. Per cent, in
create, 218 80100.
The per cent, of increase in the whole
South was 28 44100, which represents the nat
ural Increase.
The surplus increase of Texas was 110,774,
bn own to consist almost entirely of prime
Held hands, worth on an average SSOO each
mostly placed upon the cotiun fields, and re
presenting a capital of $55,367,000.
Now, if a cash receipt of S4OO per hand has
earned uu emigration, by purchase, from the
tiave brteding states, requiring the payment
of five and a half millions of dollars each
year, what will be the emigration caused by a
cash return of $1,500 per annum upon emi
grants representing in themselves no invested
capital, but needing only the prospect of such
a profit to move themselves ?
Surely the products of free labor must in
crease in the next ten years iu as rapid a ratio
as the product of slave labor has increased in
the past ten years.
The increase in the crop of cotton In Texas
hue been greater than the increase of slaves—
1. Because the profit has already Induced
its cultivation to some exteut by free labor:
2 Because the building of railroads and
other improvements in inland transportation
has opened a huge amount of cotton coun
3. Because a large section which was sup*
pojjcd to be lit only f;r grazing is found to be
cotton bud of the best Kind.
The crop of cotton in Texas lo 1850 was
58,072 bales; In 1860 it was 105,100 bales, or
cu times as much as in 1850.
It free labor in ten years from the end of
the war shall only develop the cotton land of
Texas as rapidly os slave labor has done, her
ciop of cotton will be nearly 3.000,000 bales,
rtquiritgfor its cultivation leas tiu»n two per
cent of her area.
Let these principles bo applied to thcro
n ainder of the cotton states, and it is believ
ed that before the year 1870 the crop ofcot
toivof the United States will be larger
baa ever yet been raised.
The average crop of cotton to the hand
throughout the country does uot exceed sir
bales, although the standard for fair work
uj.cn new laud in Georgia, Alabama andMbs
hsippi Is eight bales; in Arkansas and Texas
tt n bales*
It will be much more profitable for the free
laborer owning good cotton land to give hb
w hue time to the cultivation of cotton, pur
chasing his grain from the western states.
Ibis has been the policy of many planters,
even with slave labor.
II slave labor can produce ten bales to the
baud—and the writer can bring evidence of
t-htecn, eighteen and even twenty-two bales
to the baud where cotton only was cultivated
—it is certainly fair to estimate that free labor
v ill yield ten bales to the baud
At this moderate estimate 100,000 laborers
would bo required to produce 1,000.000 bales,
and to each laborer emigrating to Texas must
be allowed a family of three, making an emi
gration of 400,000 required to produce 1,000,-
000 bales per annum.
If DiOvcd4n the form of slaves, this emigra
tion would > T*epresent a capital of two bund
led million * dollars, but if moved by tbe will
of the emigrant for bis own personal gala, it
represents no invested capital, but simply the
cost of emigration.
It has taken the slaveholders just twenty
years to move 400,000 slave laborers from the
breeding states to the cotton stales, but a far
lets profit to the laborer than is now offered
In tbe cultivation of cotton has induced tbe

Or a population equal to the production of nearly
five minion bales of cotton.
"While slavery exists in Texas free emigra
tion is small, and leaving the cotton lands to
the slaveholder, betakes itself to the grazing
country where slaves ore few.
Keniove slavery and, and the extra profit to
be made in miring cotton la Texas, over com
or wheat in the West, will turn the full tide
of emigration In that direction.
The laboring force engaged upon cotton in
1860 produced 5,198,077 bales of 400 pounds
This force will be temporarily disorganized
and somewhat reduced by the war, but by far
the larger portion must return to the cultiva
tion of cotton, unless all the fixed .principles
of political economy are to be set at naught.
The Sonth Is essentially an agricultural coun
try, and Its labor must of necessity be turned
to that product which it can most easily raise
and from which it con obtain the most profit,
and that is cotton.

The military organization of colored troops,
removing all danger of insurrectionary move
ments, will regulate, control and utilize the
physical force of the only “genuine Union
men in the Gulf States. The greatest war
power of treason will become the most effi
cient defense of the Union, and while it will
smother rebellion, it will destroy the corse
that caused It.
On the 22nd of May the War Department
irened a general order (No. 143) establishing a
bureau in the Adjutant General’s office lorUie.
organization of colored regiments, wherebv
me system of employing them as part of the
forces of me United States has become the
fixed and permanent policy of the Govern
ment That policy, sanctioned by Congress,
carried into practical effect by me Govern
ment, Ims been approved by the general con
sent of wise and patriotic men. The country
cannot afford to lose the aid of its best and
chief supporters In me South.
The employment of colored troops, it Is
true, was m me beginning experimental. The
law of 1863, which first authorized mem to
enter the service, provided no means of pay
The second law, which permitted their em
ployment, authorized them to be paid ten
dollars per mom o and one ration per day.
This law was, however, made with reference
to those who, by force of arms, or by pro
visions of statutes l , had been recently freed
from bondage.
The important, class of colored soldiers
from the free States were probably not In the
contemplation of Congress when framing
tluse acts. But now, while the colored men
are admitted to be citizens of the United
States, and since the Conscription Act makes
no distinction between white and colored cit
izens, bnt requires them equally to be en
rolled and drafted, in the forces of the United
States, there seems to be no reason why aach
citizens should not, when volunteering to
serve the country, be placed npon the same
footing with other soldiers as regards their
pay and bonnly.
The attention of Congress will be directed
to ibis subject, and from the generous man
ntr in which they have treated the soldiers
heretofore, it cannot be donbted that they
will honor themselves by doing full Justice
to those of every color, who rally round the
Union flag In time of nubile danger.
But I do not forget'mat the cjlored soldiers
are not fighting for pay. They will not let
their enemies reproach them with being mean
a- well as cowardly. They wUI not lose this
their first chance, to vindicate their ri"Ut to
be called and treated as men. Fay or no piy.
they will rally round tha*. banner of freedom
which shall soon float over a country that
contains no stave within Its borders.
The policy of the Government infixed and
immovable. Congress has passed the irrevo
cable acts ol emancipation. The Supreme
Court cf the United Slates have unanimously
decided that, since July IS, 1861, we lave been
engaged In a territorial civil war, and have full
belligerent rights against the inhabitants of
the rebellions districts. The President basis
sued proclamations under Ms hand and seal.
Abraham Lincoln takes no backward step. A
man once made free by law canuot be again
made a slave. The Government has no power,
if it had the will to do It. Omnipotence alone
can re-eusiuve a freeman. Fear not that the
Administration will ever take the back track
The President wishes the aid of all Americana
of whatever descent or color, to defeud the
country. Be wishes every citizen to share
the perils of the contest, and to reap the
fruits of victory.

Grant and Sherman on Tenure.
An anecdote Is told of Grant and Sherman
which Is too good to be lost. It will be re
membered that some mouths ago the rebel
Congress at Richmond, with great condescen
sion, passed a set of resolutions tendering to
the people of the great Northwest the free na
vigation of the “Father of Wa-ers,” on con
dition that they would lay down their arms
and acknowledge the Southern Confederacy.
At the same time, Grant and Sherman were
laying their plans and making their calcula
tions to cany the Tidlahatchee lines by a
strcirg front attack, with a side thrust at Ar
kansas, and then moving boldly down the
river, fur the capture of every stronghold by
which that river was held. in the midst of
these plans and calculations, and while these
two ©Ulcers were conferring together, Qcn.
Grant, happening to open a newspaper con
taining the rebel resolutions, read them for
the Urct time. Be was indignant; he declared
the proposition fbr audacity had no parallel
in history, except la that celebrated proposi
tion of the devil when he offered to give “all
the kingdoms of thtearth” to obtain an ac
knowledgment of his rebel confederacy,
whereas the specious traitor knew that he
Lad not a single foot of land to dispose of!
Gen Grant is known to be a great reader of
tic Bible, and it Is natural that the compari
son should occur to him.
Sherman, on the contrary, prides himself of
hflvirg read BUckstone, and of coarse under
stands the qualities of tenures. He thought
the rebel Congress need not make out the
deed just yet, for the reason that there was a
Terr fair prospect cf the franchise being
6ro»t-ed by force of arms, aliitmlc the convic
tions which in law would be " a Grant by title

G. W. Clarke stated that J. J, Bentley had
surrendered his credentials as local preacher
lie went to tho war os Captain, and main
tained a fair character. Dr. Clarke said:
“Bis reasons are that having been in the
war and fought the rebels, he now finds Cop

maintain his Christian and ministerial char
acter, hnt is inclined to he tremendously ex
cited, and is afraid somebody may get hurt”
The editor of the Fulton Republican, at
McConneftsburg, says that, while the rebels
occupied that town, his office was pointed
out to them by the Copperheads as an Abo
lition concern. Several of the officers called
upon him, and asked to see his files. After
examlng them, the Lieutenant in command
said: “I see, sir,, this is a Republican news
papers yon advocate a vigorous prosecution
ol the war, and are in favor of sustaining your
Government in everything. Hike to see a man
one thing or the other.” Taking several copies
of the paper, they left without moles ing any
thing in the office, to the great Indignation of
the Copperheads of place.

Letter From Parson Brownlow,
[From the Louisville Journal, July 2ith.J
We give below a communication from Par
son Brownlow, embodying a letter to himself
from a citizen of North Georgia, whom he
Touches for as a well-informed and reliable
man. We ask the attention of all concerned
to what the Parson and his correspondent
Nashtoxb, July 21,1563.
To the Edilore of the Lon InUle Jon mal;
lam not an alarmist, nor do I usually make a
noise over small matters, but I have received a let
ter from Georgia which has made such an impres
sion upon my mind that I feel bound to make a
publication of the facts in the Louisville and Cin
cinnati papers. The letter is in these words:
North Georgia, July 11, 1863.
Dn. Bbowxlow: I have not seen yon for two
years, but I look with interest upon all that con
cerns you, and let me assure you that the abuse of
yon in the Southern papers, which has been bitter,
has not lowered yon In my esteem. Ton are right
—you have been right from the beginning, and
snch will be the Judgment of the country before
yon die with old age.
The late retreat of Bragg Is denounced by the
chivalry as disgraceinl, and it is the more mortify
ing to them from the'fact that they had expressed
their confidence In Bragg’s ability to whip Rose
pans. ana to take Nashville. The lora of Vicks
burg is crushing to them, andmany.of their lead
ing men give up all as lost. What effect this late
disaster will have upon their fnturc plans and par
poses lam not able to conjecture, but I will state
toyou what lam certain have bcea their plans. In
deed I know what they have intended, and what
well informed leaders have declared. They inten
ded, as a Coll campaign, to invade Kentucky upon
ahurgescale, starting oat of East Tennessee, and
to tack and bum Louisville and Cincinnati. Pre
paratory to this, they Intended to send an
force upon a small case to spy out the country. A?
the tame time they intended to masa their troops
in Virginia and make a determined assault upon
Washington. I will not give my name, but I will
relate as incident which occurred when you were
all night at my honee several years ago. and you
will at once recognize me as an old familiar whig
friend. I withhold my name because this letter
may not reach yon, ana might hang me, I state,
however, that, when Bragg’s army retreated, they
divided—one portion going np the road into East
Tennessee, and the greater pot tion of them coming
into Georgia upon the State road. Bat few. if any
of them, remained at Chattanooga,
• Now, Messrs, Editors, 1 know the writer of this
letter, and let me say I know him to be a 0 f
fine business Qualifications, of good common
sense, and a well Informed and reliable man. He
Is a man of good property and a slaveholder. I tell
yon, and through yon the people of Louisville,
Cincinnati, and Washington, that there is more in
this aflair than may strike them at first glance. I
give the facts toyon and you can give them to the
Cincinnati and Washington papers, and our mili
tary antnorlties at those points can attach to them
whatever importance they may deem proper. The
rebels may change their plans, but that they inten
ded these movements, I have no sort of doubt.
I am, very truly, W. Q, Brownlow.
Tho Cliainpion Boat Bace at Pough
keepsie, If. Y.
[From the N. T. Times, July Sl.]
All the hotels and public houses were full,
and the universal talk was boat, boat races!
Hammili, Ward, &c., the betting being gen
erally at two to one on HaimniU up to near
the start, wten from the freedom with which
the Ward men took all tho offers they could
get at such great odds, the Pittsburghers held
stiffer for belter terms, and succeeded in
bringing It down to SIOO to SOO, and at length
to SIOO to $75; and after the bouts had start
ed, the Ward men came ont llatfooted and
offer ed to bet even on their favorite. Strangely
enough, at the very time, on board the judge's
boat, and with a bad start for Hammlll, when
Ward-was leading him a length. Mr. Stephen
Fleming, of Pittsburgh. Mr. HammilTs
backer, offered SIOO to §SO on hia beating
ward, and me*: with no takers; at Sutzer’s
Hotel, early In the morning, an Albany gen
tleman offered to bet §BOO even on Hammlll,
oi. d was snapped up by a Poughkeepslan; and
we had It for a fact that Mr. Fleming had de
posited $20,000 In the banks, a great portion
of which he invested on Hammili. The
crowds on the docks and In the steamboat
hotel were immense, two propellers having
come from Newburgh loaded with passen
gers, and a small one from Cornwall with
Ward and his immediate friends. He lives,
and trained himself at Cornwall, which ac
counts for his line condition. It Is said that
in the Schuylkill race he was trained by other
hands and out of condition, hence his defeat
by Hammlll Numbers of persons came
from Pittsburgh, where TEimmfn haiu f ro m,
and one from that locality. In answer
to a question as to Hammill’s muscle,
said he didn’t know much about his muscle,
but he had lungs like a forge-bellows—rather
suggestive of the man’s occupation. A large
deft gallon come from the Empire CUy Regat
ta Club, Harlem River—where Hammili train
ed—with Mr. Stephen Roberts, the President
of ihe Club, and Mr. Cotte, the Treasurer,
and other officers; and beside those who went
npbythe Hudson River Railroad train, and
the Albany day boat and Poughkeepsie boat,
the steamboat Wm. Kent took up a Luge
number on a special trip. A great many were
known to have come from the far "West, Can
aduandother places, many of whom witnessed
the race from excursion boats and small crafts:
and in addition to tbe docks, every available
position from the houses on shore was filled;
and the Kaal Bock—lso feet perpendicular ont
of the deep water of the Hudson—was cov
ert d with the elite of the city and neighboring
Joshua Ward Is 6 feet high, 2S years old, and
weighs 154 pounds; he pulls a long, steady
stroke, which is considered best for a Isstln o,
race, fils boat—Dick Blsden, of New Turk—
was built by George Shaw, of Newburg, of
mahogany; 20J£ leet long, 17Inches beam,
and weighs 45 pounds.
Ham mill Is 5 feet 7% inches high, about 24
years old, and weighs 153 pounds. He pulls
a short, quick stroke, which, with a rippled
water and his narrow boat, might have been
an advantage to him, but the water In this
ruee wus as smooth as glass. •
This boat is named toe Alexander King, of
Pi'ibburg, Penn., and was bnllc of mahogany,
by McKay, of WiUiamsburgh, N. T. She is
£0 feet long, 14 inches beam, and weighs 50
Ijontids. Both boats were what Is called shell
bouts, that is almost cut down to the water’s
edge, and covered with canvas fore and aft,
i-seept a email well-hole in the centre for the
nwn to sit in, and ringed with out riggers to
hold the row locks.
The start was from the Judges’ boat, in the
middle of the river, oft tbe Kaal Rock, to a
point In the middle of the river two and a
half miles np the river; each man to turn, a
separate-boat 100 yards apart, and near the
middle of the river, and return to the start
ing point. The tide was about three-quarters
Hoed, and ihe men tossed for choice of upper
stitke-boats, which was wonby HammUl, who
chose the eastormost boat, leaving Ward to
inrn the boat towards the west side of the
liver; this was considered in favor of Hamill
on the return, as he could the sooner get out
of the strength of the flood tide, by getting
into the slack water on the eastern shore";
both were to turn his boat from the east to
west, and in doing so the lighter, shallower
and wider boat brWard, enabled him to gain
a couple of lengths oh HammlU in tarmn«*.
The start took place exactly at three o’clock
by the firing of a pistol, noon which HammUl
shook his head, and said, ‘‘No,” making no
attempt at a start; but seeing no recognition
of Lis refusal by the Judge, and that Ward
had started a boat’s length in fronL he quick
os a flash, bent down to it, and got under way'
with a will, and reached the upper boat just
three lengths behind Ward, losing two more
in turning, and finally came In tea lengths be
hind Ward, who won the race in 41 minutes
J5 seconds. The same distance had been
done by John Biglan, on the Harlem River, in
Sir minutes. ’
Upon the result being anticipated near the
etd of the race, Poughkeepsie seemed as if it
would have turned over Into the Hudson.
The crinoline on the Haul Rock seemed in a
more than usual flutter, and so intent were all
on their favorite hero that the rock
have toppled over without their fairing Suy
no‘ice till the dip in the Hudson had cooled
their enthusiasm. The screams of delighted
humanity and of steam whistles was never so
astounding. In short, the Newburgh propel
lers seemed likely to run poor irummiq
down, so anxious were the living freight to
embrace Josh. Ward os he came in.
Of course large amounts of money changed
hands, and renewed attempts will he made to
men together for a conquering

The Toronto Globe publishes the details of
the transfer of the Hudson’s Bay Company’s
property to a new association. The gisk of
the a3alr Is, that the far trade and all other
property, rights and Interests of the old mon.
opoly ore sold to a new company, of rather
more extensive capital, with a fresh board of
management, and probably some larger and
broader ideas and intentions. The position of
the public questions in which the old com
pany were concerned Is but little altered by
the transfer. The consent of the Colonial
Secretary has not been asked in m.iirw the
arrangements. Sir Edmund TT.ui is Governor
of the new company. The half continent
which the Hudson’s Bay Company has ruled
so long is stm to be ruled by a Joint stock
corporation in London, and the same un
founded claim will donbtless be set up to the
possession of the land as well as the trade of
the Northwest, as was practically asserted by
its predecessor at Bed River.

The Now Bra In California mining.
. [From the Alta Californian.]
We have the evidence before our eyes every
day that not only this city, but the whole
Sh>te, are enjoying at this time a degree of
prosperity which m calmer days would be the
subject or much and general congratulation;
but few have taken the trouble to examine
into the causes which have produced it. The
war, it is true may have added somewhat to
our wealth and population, but the main rea
son for the activity and bustle which we be
hold around ns is the extraordinary develop
ments of the mineral resources of the State.
In the summer of 1859 were discovered
those rich silver mines in Washoe—now the
Territory of Nevada—which are every day
rivaling in the richness and extent ot their
yield the famous mines of Mexico in the olden
time. Previous to that date, mining upon
the whole of this coast was fitful, feverish and
superficial. There was no capital invested In
the business but the labor of the adventurous
geld hunter. Men rushed hither and thither
in search of rich diggings. One time they
were hurrying pell-mell south towards the
Colorado; at another, north, in search of the
golden sands of Fraser River. In such flit
tings about, nothing but the surface was of
course examined.’ The explorers had only
©yes for rich bars and placer diggings, for they
had not the means of working anyothers with
advantage. With the discovery of the silver
mines ot Washoe, however, we entered upon
an entirely new era in mining—the mining of
: science and associated capital. It isno longer
; sought to reveal the hidden treasures of the
earth with a simple'pick. Companies have '
been formed; veins have been prospected, tun
nels constructed, and shafts sunk. Science
now asserts her sway over the vast mineral
districts of the Pacific, stretching all the way
from Fort Tejon up to Pyramid Lake.
From the results which have been already
attained, It is tolerably clear that the first de
cade of mining in California was nothing bat
the skirmishing preliminary to the grand bat
tle which is now being waged with mother
earth for the purpose of compelling her to re
veal her secrets. From 1&19 to 1859 we were
doing nothing more .than removing the gold
which could be found on or near the surface.
Now we are engaged, with all the appliances
which science supplies, in thoroughly search
ing lor the precious metals, and as the work
progresses, the larger grows the vast Sold,in
viting the labors of the gold miner. The pas
sion for the acquisition of wealth formerly
took the shape of gold fevers. There was a
ruth here and a recoil there, according as the
new region was unknown or explored. Now
mining is as steady a business as any otbor in
the State, and Is being conducted In accord
ance with those rules which experience h*?
To engage in the pursuit of sad
den fortune heretofore it was neces
sary to shoulder the pick, tramp
from place to place and undergo the severest
hardships. If working a placer digging
paid $5 per day, the miner should hear of an
other district where SlO could be made iu the
same space of time, though it was a hundred
miles distant, and the way to it over ragged
momitaius, he was off in the morning, audthe
Chinamen stepped into his shoes. To-day,
however, the whole business is changed, and
associated capital and labor arc taking pos
session of the field. Every branch almost of
business bos been benefited by the mining ex
pansion -of the times. There is, of course, a
great demand for machinery. The foundry
men, therefore, are reaping a rich harvest.
There la a demand for labor, both skilled and
unskilled, to construct tunnels andshafts.aad
to inn mills; and the condition of the labor
ing man Is therebylmproved. There is a de
mand for supplies of all kinds at remote
points, and the merchants who have them,and
the companies which transport them, are
making money. The picture la completed by
those who have already made their fortunes
In mining, and roll about iu their carriages.
Many of the palatial residences and magnifi
cent blocks wblch we see rising around ns arc
tbe property of men who made judicious in
vestments in mining stocks.

We have on exhibition at our office a very
