The Chicago organ of Jeff. Davis, hav-
Jng annihilated the nine hundred Yankee
school ma’ams assembled here to take part
i,! the Teachers’ National Convention,
sow charges upon the Chicago cleigy who
had the temerity to observe Thanksgiving
Day. That's the course that the apolo
gists and defenders of Slavery have always
followed— attacking first Education and
then Religion. "Why not? Are not Ignor

deposition of the authorities at Washing

ve beg those authorities to understand
that New York presents a crucial test—if
they cannpt draft there, they can draft no
where; and the war will languish until it

to cany it on. This is a fact that the

HB. S, 6. Him
Mr. B. B. Hayes may enter a complaint,
or the Chicago organ of Jeff. Davis may do
Bo for him, in consequence of the reception
Of his recent speech in defense of Slavery,
at Portland. It was greeted with hisses
t>y his fellow excursionists, and the Comp
troller of the dty of Chicago “ dried up,”
or, what was more graceful, went off into
the prophetic platitudes iu which excur
sionists are wont to indulge. Mr.'Hayes
is not ass enough not to have learned by
this rime, that, in the changes of public
opinion, duo to the rousing of the public
conscience, the time is not far distant
when the defenders of Slavery will be
ranked with the apologists for murder,
arson or incest But he probably forgot
that he was not speaking in 1858. Let the
anger and disgust that his words excited
he a lesson that he will not forget
"Wc leam upon undoubted authority that
among the letters seized at Jeff Davis’
place in Mississippi,- was one from one of
the Laumoks, in tins dty, dated in 1809,
In which the necessity, duty, and safety of
accession were urged in Each English as
those ignoramuses hnow how to write.
The argument in the epistle was, that in
the event of secession, the North would he
divided, and that, owing to the division,
the Union might he broken up with per
fect impunity to those engaged In the ne
farious work.
We state the fact, having no doubt of-its
correctness. The course of the family, he
and she, since the rebellion broke out, is
proof enough that there is in it the capa
bility for that sort of treason, and that the
members thereof are still active in tbeir
endeavors. We have sent for the letter in
question, and its publication at an early
day will justify and excuse what we now
say. It is well to have the traitors among
sis unmasked and exposed.
Until the letter comes, (it may by this
• lime have gone beyond our reach) we beg
our readers to remember that the writer
Is npft of the model Peace Democrats, and
that, in his opinion, the war for the “ sub
jugation” of the South, the enforcement
of order and the authority of the Govern
ment, is murder, for which the Federal
troops will never be forgiven- He is a
typical representative of the school to
which he belongs—a fit month-piece for
that ciy of “ abolitionist,” “ fanatic,” “ nig
ger-worshipper,” which the Peace party
have set up.
On the 81st nit., CoL Wilson, Provost
Uarshal of Vicksburg, stated to our cor
respondent that such was the condition to
which the planters for several miles around
Vicksburg were reduced, that entirely new
arrangements had to be made by the chief
of the Commissariat for their relief the
regular plan of drawing rations, in turn,
at Vicksburg being totally inadequate.
Bald Col. Wilson, “ I sincerely believe
*' Hint hundreds of the leading families in
“this region arc in imminent danger of
starvation.” Gen. Grant has ordered
tli«t a depot for supplying the inhabitants
l>c established on the Big Black, eighteen
'or twenty miles from Vicksburg. As has
been before stated, planters come in for
supplies from twenty-five and thirty miles
bade of Vicksburg. Their horses and
mules in many instances have been taken
iioxn them—as often by the rebel as the
federal army; and thus men who own
thousands of-acres have not the means of
getting to. Vicksburg and carrying home
their subsistence rations, and, besides fur
jdshing these, the Government must furn
jpp transportation nearly to their own
floors —in fact Government teams are lent
by Quartermasters, in cases of emergency,
lor this purpose.
Gen. Jo. Johnson seems to have made
no effort whatever to afford relief to these
thousands upon thousands of enthusiastic
xebd “ ofthe Confederacy,” but
to have in many Instances stripped them
of everything that could famish subsistence
to Us soldiers, regardles of the “ constitu
.donal rights” of the civilians. These
- jacts have aroused the indignation
of these of the leading planters in West
ern Mississippi, who .have any common
sense left; and delegations have recently
waited upon Gen. Grant to represent that
a not inconsiderable portion of the people
of that region are disgusted with the treat
ment they have received from the Confed
eracy, and between that feeling and des
pair in regard to the prospects of the rebel
government ever being established, a
Union sentiment is increasing. Our cor
respondent ascertained, that Gen. Grant
himself places greU reliance upon these
representations, and considers Mississippi
in a fair way of coming as an immblft mid
patient candidate for re-admission to all
the privileges of a member of tho Union
—and not asking to have the old order of
things in regard to slavery restored.
In view of this Slate of things, well
informed parties at Vicksburg express
great confidence that in the spring of 1864,
the crops in Western Mississippi will be
put into the ground by the native citizens,
in peace—apeace ariang from complete
submission in all that region, to the old
FAI.SE ”sSßPS,fi££™
It is said Umt figures win notlle, but an
improper me of them -will convey false in
formation.. The Kew York Kwapublishes
an elaborate article on the progress that
lias been made in putting down the rebel
lion. It sets out tbus:-“Iu estimating
“ llie effective strength of the twoMi|.
“erent parties, at the beginning of the con
“ lest, we will include Missouri and Ten
“ncsscc among the loyal Btates, and con
"rider Virginia, Korth Carolina, Louiai
«ana and Arkansas as entirely disloyal”
Kow the. naked truth is, that at thehe
ginning of the contest, Missouri furnished
ten soldiers for the rebel cause to every
for fhc Union ride. In the first year o£s
rebellion very few hut Germans ahouMSk
Louis, espoused the Federal cause, tniSe
not less than 60,000 Missourians flocked to
the Confederate standard. It was not un
til alter the volunteers of Illinois nnd other
TVeslcm States went oyer there and sound
ly flogged the rebels, and drove the last
battalion out of the State that Unionism
took root In Missouri soil. The present loy.
ally of the State has been purchased by the
blood and lives of 30,000' Western soldiers,
and more than that number of rebel Mis
sourians have perished.
Still greater is the error in classifying
Tennessee among the loyal States at the
outset of pic war. It was iheu completely
in tie hands of the rebels, Not one acre
of it was controlled by the Federate, and
not until many bloody battles were fought
and torrents of blood spilled, did the
Union flag get a foothold on its soil - It is
true that a majority of the people of East
Tennessee'preferred the old Union from
the first; but they were quickly overrun,
and conquered; many were hunger shot;
others were exiled; but thousands were
forced into the rebel ranks to serve as con
scripts, where they are to this day. Ten*
nessee tins furnished rebel armies with
70,000 men. And it was only when our
troops captured Nashville that refugees
.and deserters began to make their way into
our lines and join our ranks. There have
been more secessionists in Illinois ever
since the war began than there were
Unionists in Tennessee or Missouri at the
commencement of the contest.
The Tima also classifies Kentucky,
Maryland and Delaware among the loyal
States when the war broke out. The first
named of these furnished the rebels 23,000
soldiers during the first six months of the
war; and not half so many for the Union.
It is only last week that 5,100 Ken
tucky guerillas, under John Morgan and
Basil Duke, swam the Cumberland, en
route to Ohio and Indiana, and 4,500 were
killed or captured after crossing the Ohio.
Kentucky was held to her Union moorings
by 170,000 volunteers from the great free,
warlike States oi Ohio, Indiana and Illi
nois, who after much hard fighting ex
pelled the rebels from that State.
At the outset of the war, Maryland was
decidedly on the ride of the rebels, and
during the first eighteen months of the
struggle furnished more volunteers for
Jeff. Davis’ armies than for the Union
army. The bayonets of Northern soldiers
have expelled the armed Maryland rebels
from that State.
Delaware has done less lor the rebels
and more for the Union, in proportion to
its strength, than any other slave State—
amply because there are few slaves. Still,
Delaware sent quite a number of men to
the rebel service, and helped the cause by
conveying them contraband information,
in which also the secesh of Maryland have
been largely and actively employed.
l\or is it true that all the people of West
ern Virginia were loyal at the beginning of
the war. Far from it. More rebels there
took up arms for Jeff. Davis than for the
Union, and the loyalty of Western Vir
ginia was of the most inert, apathetic sort
until the volunteers of Ohio and Indiana
had killed off or driven away some ten
thousand rebel West Virginians. Since
then their loyalty has grown bold, active!
and flourishing.
Alt the loyal people in the slave Slates
when the war broke out were more than
counterbalanced by the open and secret
traitors at the North. Instead, therefore,
ot the relative strength of the belligerents
when the war being as the Timen states: —
Population of loyal States .33,015,000
Population of Disloyal States 7,903,010
It was as follows:
Population of loyal States....
Population of disloyal States.
And the number of disloyal persons arc
proportionately as great now as when the
first gun was fired. The Copperheads,
Union-haters and dishonorable peace
sneaks have increased in the North as fast
as.the Unionists have increased in the
South; but their oganlzation will shortly
collapse, and the aid and comfort extended
to the rebels will come to nought. In the
meanwhile let the New York Timet revise
and correct its figures.
fg* As the Illinois State Bcgi»tcr is pre
sumed to have the documents, may we re
spectfully arii it for the text of the amend
ment which the Copperheads of the North
west, particularly those of Illinois, propose
to incorporate into the “ Constitution as it
is,” to. insure the “rights” and the
“ equality” of tie States. "We propose to
put it into print ior the edification and en
lightenment of those Copperheads of New
York and New .England, who swear that
they arc for the fundamental law as it
stands, and that they will resist to the death
any violation of its letter or spirit. ‘Will
the Register favor us ?
ItComnents In Arkansas.
We learn that during the last ten days
more than twenty regiments have arrived in
Helena, all reporting to Major General Steele,
who Is now in command ol the 10th army
corps. M&jor General Prentiss still com
mands the district and Brigadier General
Salomon is in command of the “ forces and
defences.” The following are the regiments
at the place:
85th Missouri infantry, 83d lowa infantry,
29th lowa inilintiy, o6th lowa infantry, 40th

It seems that there exis‘B some difficulties
between Major General Steele and Gen. Pren
tiss in regard to the command of these forces,
which, it is said, are to form an expedition
against Little Pock and some other impor
tant points in Arkansas. Both the Generals
claim to be in command—General Prentiss
because he was located at the place from
which the expedition was to start, and Gen.
Steele because he has been exprestiy ordered
to take that command by Major General
The Fall Flection In Western Virginia.
Three members of Congress are to be elect
ed from West Virginia this fall, on the fourth
Thursday of October. The Wheeling Intdli
gtneer, speaking of the fret, says: “No man
ought to go to Congress in these times who
is not willing to stand square up to the Gov
ernment. Such is the sentiment of the peo
ple, and s true representative will carry that
sentiment into tflect. The best way to do is
for the Union men of cadi district to demand
that every candidate pat himself fairly and
nnmistakeably on the record. In this way
we shall secure undoubted men.

Crops In Northern Illinois.
A quite recent ride over the line of the Gjl
letaand Chicago Union Railway to Galena,
enables us to give some information In regard
to the crops over that territory. The wheat
has been all harvested and never looked bet
ter. The amount of the crop will probably
fall below an average. Much of it is still in
shock on the fields, and may be injured by
the heavy rains of Saturday and Sunday, but
no damage is yet apparent, and if the weather
should clear up at ouce, it will probably es
cape injury. Two weeks ago com looked
sickly aud stunted, but the warm rains ami
hot sun since that period hayc worked almost
a miracle. It seems to have eprun* no aa if
by magic, and if there be no drawback, the
crop, to the acre, will be pretty equal to last
rear, if not larger. The breadth planted will
. fall short of-last year. 'Oats and barley have
also been mostly harvested, and promise

Sugar Cane,
The amount of sugar cane—Chinese, Imphee
and Otaheltan—planted this season, is very
large. We have not much information, as
yet, as to the condition of its growth, bat
have heard from a few districts on the Illinois
Central Railway.
In the town t f Pm a. Champaign county,
there have been about 500 acres planted. The
cane is growing finely, and will produce an
average crop.
In the town of Bulelkt, Iroquois county,
about the same number of acres as in Peru
are under cultivation. A part of it looks
promising, while much looks thin and will
not produce more than half an ordinary crop.
In the township of Okauga, Iroquois coun
ty, there were abont 400 acres planted, and
the crop will prove a fair one, the late show
ers having much improved it.
In the township of Cuptox, Iroquois coun
ty, the drouth seems to have been more severe
than at any other point in that vicinity, and
the stand looks poor and small. There will
probably be not more than half a crop.
In Kankakee, the sugar cane looks well,
and will be a medium crop. A considerable
breadth of sugar beet was planted in Kanka
kee, but has suffered much from the drouth.
At BornnoNXAis Gbovz, the French settle
ment, near Kankakee, 500 acres of cane have
been planted, and there will be a good yield.
At Makteso, Kankakee county, there arc
about 4CO acres of cane growing. This place
has not suffered from the drouth, and the
crop will be a large one.
O. M Brainard & Co. ore putting no mills

they will all be ready for service by the Ist of
September. Messrs. Brainard & Co. are now
building a machine, to be attached to their
mills, to cut up the begasse, os it comes from
the mill, and in lids condition to be used as
fuel in the furnace. If they succeed in this,
it will save about one-half the amount of

The numerous depredations committed by

Adjutant General Fuller has just Issued the
following important military order;
[General Military Order, No. 4] .
L The attention of the people of this State
is agaio urgently called to the necessity of the
prompt organization of one or more compa
nies of hiluctry as State Militia in each county
in this State. The militia law approved May
3.1801, was repealed by the Legislature at its
lost session. Chapter 70, entitled “Militia
United States of 1843,” however, is-still in
force. Section 9of that law provides that a
company shall consist of one captain, one
Ist lieutenant, and 3d lieutenant, one 3d lieu
tenant, four sergeants, four corporals, one
drummer, one filer, and not less than thirty
two nor more than one hundred privates.
The commissioned officers are elected and ■
the non-commissioned officers ore appointed
by the Captain.
2. All the white male citizens between the
ages of IS and 45 years are liable to military
duty; and at the present timeic should be the
ambltionand pride of all such to qualify them
selves to discharge such duty promptly and
efficiently. . ,
As soon as companies are organized and
ihelr officers commissioned, they will be as
signed to battalions and regiments, and elec
tions fur field officers ordered.
The organized militia uf tho State as such,
can only (.except for drill and muster! be used
to repel invasion, suppressinsurrection,audln
certain emergencies, aid the State and Federal
authorities in executing process and enforcing
the laws,' Drill and discipline are indispen
sable to its usefulness and efficiency, and
therefore it is the duty of all good and loyal
citizens to encourage and aid la its organiza

S. At the commencement of the present re
bellion nearly all arms belonging to the Stvte
were issued to volunteers and taken to the
field. Their places have not yet been sup
plied, nor the quota to which the State is
entitled for the past two years received.
When these arms are received they will be
issued to the organized militia, as occasion
may require. In the meantime, however, they
are not absolutely necessary to organization,
or instruction of these companies. Much
progress may be made in drill and discipline
without them.
To this end, therefore, the Commander-in-
Chief would urge the immediate enrollment
of militia companies, and with tbe assurance
that they shall be with arms as soon

The Democratic, armed demonstration at
Maltocn, and the acts of the Copperheads in
the extreme southern counties of the State,
have at length folly opened the eyes of the
people to the treasonable purposes of the
j6 city and Eegiitcr of this
.place have been vehemently denying that
there was any such armed organization in the
State. On the other hand they have been de
nouncing the Onion Leagues as organized and
armed to exterminate the democracy, and
threatening that it would become necessary
for the Democracy to do the same. This was
done to throw dust In the eyes of the people,
for while these charges were being made
against Union men the Copperheads wereal
ready organized and armed. For proof Iwili
point you to a letter in the Chicago Titnn
giving a description of the march, of the K.
G. C. folly armed and equipped, through Mat
toon on Saturday of last week, to the number
of 3,000 men. The writer, in his exultation
at this sight, forgets that he is giving the lie
to all the former protestations of the leading
Copperhead papers. He describes their drill
os perfect, equal to that of our best regiments;
their arms as being ot the first class, some of.
them even being six-shooter rifles, &c., &c.
Now, when and where were these men
drilled, and from.whac source or fond were
they equipped? I have been chargfog that
they have been drilled in secret, by moonlight
in out of the way places, <kc, If the purpose
was legal, why this secrecy ? If these men
were for the Union, why need they seek the
retiracy of the grove, and of the solitary den
of the unfrequented prairie ?

conspiracy organized for some unlawful pur*
pose? Two months ago every Copperhead
i aper in the State denied these drillings of
armed men by moonlight. Now, in one conn*
ly a Democratic meeting is held, and we are
told by these same papers that 3,000 armed
men marched with the most perfect military
picciiion to the sound of martial mnaic. Let
the loyal people ol the State draw the proper
conclusion; . • ... .. -
By these things, yon will see that that
threatened'fire in the rear has not yet been
given up. On the contrary, it will bo opened
the moment a chance Is given by foreign in*
tervention, or a rebel success to make it avail
able. It is also hoped andjexpected by the
Copperheads that the nett Presidential elec
tion will afford an opportunity to precipitate
the North into -revolution. The ticket is
already being sounded It Is being charged
that the people will be overawed at the noils;
that a true expression of the will of the
masses is impossible under,the present cir
cumstance* of the country, - &C., &c. It is
also Intended, that If by any sort of possibil
ity Vallandigham is elected, and that the
President will not recall the order of ban
ishment, it will he made a pretext for revolu
tion—armed revolution in the North. Indeed,
Storey, acting by the dictation -of-tho- secret •
society in the Democratic party, of which he
Is siid to be a member, sent Dick Memck to
Niagara Falls to endeavor to persuade the
arch traitor to make a triumphal entry into
Ohio, in defiance ol the authorities. The
Times, in lact, openly recommended this. I
learn it was part of the great conspiracy
hatched by the traitors North andSonthin
concert. The attempt was not made, only
; because the said conspiracy was nipped in tho
bud by our late glorious Union victories.
On the Sd of September a great Union mass
convention will be held in this city, for the
purpose of giving expression to the loyalty of
the people of-this State in the present crisis.
It is hoped to make it the most imposing dem
onstration of the kind that has ever taken
place in the West. Some of the ablest speakers
andmostuncompromisiugpatriots of the coun
try will he specially invited and are expected
to be present. Among them will probably be
Generals Butler, Logan, McClcrnand, Haynle,
and Oglesby; Governors Tod, Morton, Cur
lin. Johnson,- Bramletie, Salomon, and An
drew; Hons. Joseph A. Wright, Robert Dole
Owen, Dickinson, Colfax, Drake, Doolittle,
and a number of others. The Union people
of Springfield will be prepared to extend hos
pitalities to a very large number of persons,
and am pie. arrangements will be made for all
who will come.’ Let the Union men of Illi
nois turn out in their strength.
In this connection 1 might say that the
Copperhead EtgMer lion has opened its bat
teries upon John A. Logan. That gentleman,
in return, cap say some severe things of the
party. He is prepared to prove," I sec It

National Teacher** Association Excur
sion from Chicago to Ilubnqao-An
Attractive Sight of tho Prolrlo—Tßo
Chicago Scccfrh Organ among the Ex*
cur*loiiiftiß—At Dubuque—For Cedar
[Special Correspondence of tbe Chicago Tribune.]
Dußuqus.lowo, August 9.1663.
The facilities offered by the managers of the
Galena and Chicago Union Railway to tbe
members of fhe National Teachers' Associa
tion to visit the father of Waters at anomlnal
priced was gladly accepted by four or five hun
dred members of the Association, male and.
female on Saturday last. Tho larger number
of those who accepted were from the New
Ecgl&ndund other far off States, and only a
few from Illinois and the Northwestern States.
On Saturday morning lost, at o>£ o'clock,
everything beipglu readiness, the party left
Chicago in twelve passenger coaches. At the
Junction, the train was divided; and the des
tination *f about equal numbers was severally
fixed for Dubuque and Clinton, lowa. Your
correspondent concluded to follow the Du
buque crowd, os that seemed to promise more
of interesting incident than the other.
As I have sold, much the larger number of
the excursionists were from the New England
and far off States, and ibis was their first look
at tbe great prairies of Illinois. Nature, with
the skill and labor ol tbe husbandman, never
gave them a more attractive appearance than
at this time. Tbe beautiful golden harvests
of wheat, the luxuriant fields of waving corn,
whose extent tbe eye cau hardly scan; tue cat
tle on a thousand hills, and the beau*ifal and
varied scenery, was a sight which afforded new,
astonishing and delightful sensations to tbe
excursionists. Much they had read and heard
about these thing*; but they readily acknowl
edged that, the half had not been told. Con
tinual shouts of wonder auddelighc burst from
iheir lips as sew beauties were developed,
and they ail declared this trip the crowning
delight of uninterrupted pleasures since they
left their Eastern homes. The cars were ruu
at a moderate rate of speed, and thestoppages
lengthened, thus affording on opportunity of
witnessing all&hal is possible from a railway
The beautiful towns of Elgin, Belvldore,
Rockford, Freeport, <sc., particularly attract
ed the attention of the excursionists, they
“looked so much like New England towns
and homes.’*
Shortly aftcr-thc excursionists left Chicago,
a stray copy ol the sc:esh Times of Saturday
morning was discovered in one of tho cars.
It contained a characteristic editorial on tho
Teachers' National Association, and the New
England members of it. A gentleman was
found who was willing to undertake the read
ing of the article aloud for the education of
those at whom the editor's malice was aimed.
The article was received with shouts of
laughter, derision and contempt. The poor
tool of Soutbcnriftte and malignancy, should
have been present and a witness of the utter
impotency of his attempt to disturb the
equanimity of theee New England women
and'racn, who devote their time and talents
to the education of the children of the laud.
He would as soon have knelt at tho altar of a
'Christian sanctuary and thanked God for
Federal victories, as to have looked one of
them in the face, and acknowledged himself
the author of; that scurrilous article.
At Freeport the train stopped lor an hour
and a half and thus an excellent opportunity
was afforded £be excursionists to take a look
at that risingyoung city. Tbe foal and unnat
ural mwrder.whkhhad Just been committed
in one ol the most public streets of that place,
an account of which you have published, was
a matter of much excitement and interest.
The excursionists finally reached Dubuque
at about S o'clock p. m., and were immedi
ately quartered at the various hotels. The
Dubnqucrs, as indeed all the people along
tbe entire route of the excursion—were
entirely taken by surprise, as no intimation
had reached them of this intended raid of tlis
New England school ma'ams, and they deeply
regretted this, as they would have been but
too happy to have given them a cordial greet
ing on their arrival.
Thejparty embraces many oi the leading
members of the recent Conventlou. Among
the number, I notice Prof. S. S. Greene ot
Brown University, Providence, E.I, a man
of “infinite jest;” Prof. Eaton, cf the famous
Phillips Academy, Amherst, Mass.; ProC
\ Win. E. Sheldon, of Newton, Mass.: ProC
George E. Allen, of West Newton, Mass.;
Prof. S. W. Mason, of Boston; Prof Talman,

N. Y. ; Ji p. Eberhart, School Commissioner
of Cook county;-besides a host of others,
male and female teachers, whoso names are
unknown Iffyour correspondent,
i Shortly after the excursionists were safely
; housed here, a storm .set in. accompanied by
heavy thunder end sharp lightning, and it con
tinued—the lasi part without the accompani
ment-^natU. about,noon today. Ic kept
:most of fha,excursionists indoors, except.a
few of t&e more'devout—among whom was
thesubsciiber—who faced thestorm and went
to Church, At. ,St. John's Church, a most
< excellent and instructive sermon, on Faith,
was preached by .the Rector, Rev. Mr. Bontc.
1 In the afternoon, the weather having cost
off its moist garments and put on a radiant
' face, a large number of the excursionists
, mounted the bluffs and took a survey of tbe
surrounding scenery. Of course all were de
-1 lighted, and thought it good to be there.
Many also visited the lead mines on the bluffs.
-An Invittiicn having been cordially extend
ed to ihe. excursionists by the managers of
, the Dubuque and Sioux City Railway, to take
a trip over that road to Cedar Falls, some one
> .hundred miles west, most of the party have
accepted, and will leave to-morrow morning.
' Some lew will go un the river as far as La
Crosse and thence to Milwaukee. Under the
' present intention, most of the excursionists
t will probably -.not -reach Chicago belore
Wednesday or Thursday, just in time to reach

Cannon sells whisky, and there wet their

arrested 6n a charge of desecrating the Sab

and the rest of the niggers, testified that they
imbibed Cannoa’s doggery. The contra

Union Men Coming to the Eeaoue.
[Correspondence of the Muscatine (Iowa) Joarnal.]
South English, August, 5,13*13,
On last Saturday, a man residing in loka>
situated In the southern portion of Keokuk
county, 'who has, from the outset of the war,
made a fierce opposition to its prosecution,
stumping the county in favor of “peace,” and
making mm self generally obnoxious to the
Union loving portion of this section of coun
try, came to tins place for thepurpose ol hold
ing a “peace” meeting. Ho was accompa
nied by seventy or eighty men from loka and
surrounding country, all well armed, for the
: purpose of inaugurating that blissful state of
peace so ardently desired by northern traitors.
They proceeded unmolested through the town
to a grove north-west and near here. At this
place a meeting was organized and Tolley
proceeded to deliver an address, in the course
of which he made use of the most outrageous
language, appealing to the worst passions of
bis hearers, to array them against taelrfellow
citizens and their government. No notice
was taken of this by the loyal portion of the
community, and Talley was allowed to com
plete his treasonable harangue, without even
a rebuke being administered to him.
. In the meantime, the Union-loving portion
of the community, learning that Hr. LUtler,
of Mt Pleasant, was in the village, got up an
impromtu Union meeting in the town, and Mr.
L. was invited to address them. He accepted
the invitation and was In the act of delivering
a telling and patriotic speech, from the porti
co of the “Wyandotte House, when the rebels,
who had been informed ol the meeting, came
buck through the town. Whilst passing the
place where Mr. L. was speaking, “Copper
head pins and butternuts”—the badges of
treason—were defiantly exhibited, and a num
ber of the rebels took occasion to flourish
I their arms. A young man named Moorman,
who has been in the service of his country,
and who had received a severe wound In one
of the hard fought battles, unable to control
his deep indignation at this shameless exhibi
tion of treason, advanced to one of the wag
ons, and seizing a young man therein soon
stripped his butternut from him. He was
proceeding to serve others in the same man
ner, when his father, fearful of the consequen
ces which might ensue, attempted.to stop him.
He was also seized by one of the Copperhe ids
in the wagon. D a ring the struggle which en
sued, a pistol, in the hands of the elder Moor
man, was accidentally discharged, doing no
damoge however.
A lew moments after, Talley raised in his
wagon, and gave the word to fire, (Talley
himself setting the example by firing two
shots from his revolver directly into the crowd
which had surrounded the wagon,) which or
der was promptly responded to by a volley
tired Into the crowd surrounding the Wyan
dotte Bouse. Almost simultaneously, the
Union citizens, or rather tnose who were
armed, also fired,killing Talley, who received
two balls in the head, and wounding a man
named Wyant, from MlQersbnrg, lowa coun
ty, in the thigh. The rebels then drove off,
vowing to return and burn the town. Run
ners were dispatched that night throughout
the surrounding country.
On the next day squads of men began to
arrive at the appointed place of rendezvous,
near Sigourney, all armed and organised , each
squad acknowledging the -leadership of'some
one oi their number. Daring Monday and
Tuesday men continued to arrive ahd go into
caron at a point about four miles west and
south of Sigourney, between tbe north and
smith torks of Skunk river. They came from
all directions, many of them, residing in
neighboring counties. There were companies
from Poweshiek, lowa, Mahaska, Johnston,
and Wapello coantics.
During the preparations,the Unionists who
had assembled for the protection of South
English had been by no means idle. Mondiv
morning Col. Cbipman, of Gen. Curtis’ staff,
who was fortunately at home on a visit to his
friends in Washington, arrived here, and im
mediately set about the work of organizing
tbe forces here and placing the town in a
state of defense. A company was immediate
ly organized. Tuesday morning the arms ar
rived and with them the “Washington Pro
vost Guard.” During the day (Tuesday) five
other companies or State militia arrived,
mostly from .Washington, Poweshiek and
lowa counties, one company only hailing
from Keokuk county. The&c were Immedi
ately formed into a battalion, and Col. Chip
man assumed command. The town was turn
ed into a military camp, and preparations
were immediately commenced for a vigorous
defence. Barricades were erected in all the
approaches, outside of which mounted vid
eitcs petroled the country; within, a double
row of pickets were stationed. The force
garrisoning the town numbered about four I
hundred, and with the efficient organization, I
superior arms and barricade, could have suc
cessfully held the town, had they been at
Monday night Sheriff Adams arrived hero
and arrested ten of the leading men. charged
with “inciting a mob.” They offered no re
sistance whatever, being perfectly willing to
let the law take its conrso. They were taken
before a Justice of the Peace, and bonadover
in the sum of SI,OOO each, to appear at the
next term of court. A messenger arrived
here Tuesday night from the camp of the
“ Army of the Skunk,” demanding the Imme
diate surrender of the alleged offenders,
threatening vengeance in case of a refusal.
This tery reasonable request waa of coarse re
fused, and the messenger returned. In the
meantime, tbe rebels having learned of the
prciMintlions being made to receive them, be
came more conciliatory, and were more ready
to listen-to reasonable propositions. The
men charged with the crime of riot, wishing
to avoid bloodshed, dispatched a committee of
citizens, much against the wishes of their
friends, offering to come to Sigourney for
trial for murder, providing the rebels would
disperse. ; This proposition leaving on open
ing through which the rebels could escape
without too much discredit, was immediately
assented to, and this morning the “Army of
the Skunk” is non at. The companies here
from abroad were also sent home t«-day, and
no intimations of war remain, cxcepta small
force kept for an emergency. Sheriff Adams
came up to-day and took the prisoners in
WAsmxoTOK, Aug. G, ISG3.
I have just arrived here from South English.
Since my arrival 1 learn that the excitement
is more intense than ever. The prisoners hid
been taken to lowa City instead of Sigourney.
This, together with a speech made oy Got.
Kirkwood last evening, in which he declared
his intention of arresting the ringleaders and
enforcing the laws, has caused the rebels to
re* assemble.
The companies from Muscatine and Wash*
ington arrived at Sigourney last night, about
one o’clock.

We arrived at Washington about 101-3
o’clock yesterday, and marched np to town,
where we were supplied with a bountiful re
past, in an empty store room, by the patriotic
citizens of that place, after which, the rain
having about ceased, a sufficient number of
teams to accommodate the number were
pressed Into service, and we all got under
way for Sigourney, taking with ns arms and
equipments enough to fit out a company at
that place, which were yet unarmed. Along
the road we were loudly and enthusiastically
cheered by the Unionists, while by the Cops,
we were met with seems.and groans.
We arrived at Talleyrand, midway between
Washington and Sigourney, about 6 o’clock,
when all the discharged soldiers (31 in num
ber) wereiplaced in the front teams, with guns
loaded ready for immediate action.
At dark, advance guards were formed, of
two reliefs, who were kept ont until wc reach
ed town. ! •
At 111-2 o’clock the lights at Sigourney met
the view of the advance, and in the course oi
20 minutes or half on hour wc entered the
place. There being only ‘ one company of
Home Guards there, who were only half arm
ed, you may rely upon it that we wore not un
welcome j visitors. Cheer alter cheer, and

Tho Third District In Sllssourl.
[From the Missouri Democrat.]
The race in this district between Lindsay
and Scott promises to be very close. Lind
say makes & much better ran. chan we antici
pated would be the case, after the Claybank
bolt, and the bringing out of Bogy as a can
didate. The candidates were Scott, Seces
sionist; Lindsay, Unconditional Union and
Radical Emancipation; and Bogy, Claybank
and Gambleite, running on the - Convention
Ordinance platform. Bogy was brought oat
late in the canvass, and for the solo purpose
of taking away votes from and defeating
Lindsay. In this object the authors of the
movement may be successful, as it is very
evident that but for this movement Lindsay
would have been himself, elected.' As it Is;
whether elected or not, the splendid vote ho
has obtained in the district containing a very
large secession element, and where two years
ago he was unable to reside from danger to
bis life, shows the most gratifying progress
in public sentiment.
Another thing shown by this election, is
the complete identification of the Claybauks
and Copperheads. The men who brought
outßogyas a candidate have voted for Scott.
Persorally Bogy has been a prominent and
popular man in the district,.and has secured
the bulk of his vote from the Radicals on
personal grounds, while his professed sup
porters have gone with the Copperheads.
This, as we announced before the election,
was the design ftom the outset.
The counties yet to hear from, with one ex
ception, will favor Lindsay. Besides this,
there Is a considerable army vote from Vicks
hnrjaand elsewhere to come in, which will he
mostly for Lindsay. It is likewise ascertained
that in several localities where Scott has got
his heaviest vote, the Convention oath of
loyalty was dispensed with, which makes it
clearly illegal.
Little Grow Killed*
[Correspondence St. Paul Press.]
Camp Ouk, July 3,1363.
The iress of July 10th, contains a sprited
account of the killing of an Indian near Hutch*
inson, McLeod county, in the course of which
occurs the following paragraph:
Thebodywaa brought In about 3 or 4 o'clock In
the afternoon, and formed the center of attraction
for an boar or two. Many instantly recognized the
body. He was well known in Hutchinson. He is
a largo nan, perhaps forty-five or fifty years of
age. Both hU anus arc withered anddefonned by
evident breaking and permanent displacement of
the bones—the palpable result of rough handling
at some time past. In this, as well as In stature,
behcars considerable resemblance to Little Crow,
who is also well known here; but this Indian is
lighter complexioned than Little Crow.
This paragraph immediately arrested the
marked attention of Gen. Sibley, who at once
stated that the description in Hie Press an
swered perfectly to that of Little Crow, with
whom he had long been intimately acquaint
ed. Major Brown and Captain Forbes, for
many years familiar as brothers with Little
Crow, concurred entirely in the General’s
opinion that the Indian killed by Mr. Lamp
son, was in all probability the veritable
“Petit Corlieau.” rtone of them and none of
the Half Breed or Indian scouts in camp
whom they consulted, knew or had heard of
any other Sioux hut Little Grow having this
peculiarity of “withered arms and a perma
nent displacement of the bones.” The age
of the Indian killed tallies exactly with that
of Little Crow, and it Is considered as a
strongly corroborative circumstance that the
citizens of Hutchinson, who knew little
Crow, should have detected the resemblance
to that Chief.
In addition to this, all accounts received
from various sources concur in stating that
Little Crow left Devil's Lake some time ago,
for Yellow Medicine, with a few followers.
It is thus almost impossible to resist the con*
elusion that Little Crow was the Indian killed.
We have traveled thirty miles since Monday
morning, and shall to-morrow press forward
with all possible speed to the described loca
tion of tbe Sioux camp, where we expect to
detach Standing Buffalo from the hostile
bands, if he does not advance to meet us half
way, which Is considered probable.
How Vallandlfiham Is to Get Home,
[From the Toledo Blade.]
Inquiry is sometimes made as to how Yal
landlgham, In case of bis election as Governor,
is to get Columbus. The chances of tbe loyal
people of Ohio making him their Chief Ma
gistrate are so exceedingly small, that this
question is hardly worth considering, yet it
seems that his friends have actually given it
serious thought, and the result of their delib
erations, we understand, was announced by
Hr. Cox, in his speech here on Wednesday.
Ho said that in case thelrSlateticket was suc
cessful, Pugh would appear at the proper
time and belnstalled os Lieutenant Governor,
when, from the State House steps, he would
call three times fur •YaUandlgham, tbe Gov
ernor elect, and if he did not come, he (Fugb)
as acting Governor, would call out the State
militia, and at the head of two hundred thou
sand men march to the Canada line and escort
YaL to the Capital. That U the programme,
as announced by Cox. We understand it was
received with about the same applause as met
all his vagaries.
However ridiculous such stuff may appear
to reasoning men, it is just the pabulum for
tbe mass of those who follow the Copperhead
demagogues now scattering the seeds of riot
and bloodshed through the State. Supple
:exformcrs like Cox know very well what
:Ind of tricks take best with the material they
rely on for support.
A Change of Base—Tattle for Gov*
LeGrand Byington passed through this city
yesterday morning with the nomination of a
new candidate for Governor of lowa in his
breeches pocket—being the result of the Cop
perhead Central Committee'* deliberations at
Burlington on Thanksgiving Day—which was
the substitution of Gen. Tattle for Mr. Fisher
on iheir ticket; the latter having declined.
Gen. Tuttle Is now lu the service of his
country in the field,' and U either earnestly in
favor of the war or Is hypocritically engaged
.in it for the sake of a Brigadier General's pay.
He presents the singular anomaly, however,
of being the candidate of a party avowedly
and bitterly opposed to the war and in favor
of peace. ; Whether he will accept a nomina
tion thus insulting his honor and stultifying
his manhood, remains to be seen. If he does
accept, the hypocrisy of the platform or tho
becrtlessnesa of the candidate —perhaps both
—will disgust all honest men, and platform
and candidate must sink into a depth of in
famy frooqf which they can never be resurrect

—The Dry Tortugos, properly called Fort
Jeflerson, is situated in the waters skirting
the coast of Florida. “Dry,” it is called,
hut it stands upon ono ot an Archipelago or
Band banks, miles away from any main land,
and is, in all its bearings, very wet. Fort
Jefferson is one of the Tortugns group, which
covers a nautical area of about twelve miles,
and lies in the Gulf, in latitude 24 degrees 40
minutes, lengitnde 83 degrees 50 minutes.
The islands are mere sand heaps, covered,
however, with beautiful shells and surround
ed by reels of white coral. It is a great re
sort for sea turtles. The Fort is described as
a most delightful place. Inside, the grounds
are beautifully laid ont, and contain a com
mendable display of flower-beds and other
natural decorations. There are on abundance
of trees, prominent among which are the red
oak and alanthns. The mosquitoes trouble
the latter only to die. But the most attrac
tive tree hero is that which bears the cocoa
hut. These trees are sprinkled in squads
throughout the grounds, and areas grateful
to the eye as they are useful for shade. A
long coarse grass carpets thfesaud very ac
ceptably indeed. This is the paradise of
forts, os elegant as it is strong and useful.
—The history of the growth of wool is
very curious. Ffty years ago not a pound of
fine wool was raised in the united States, in
Great Britain, or In any other country except
Spain. In the latter country tbe flocks were
owned exclusively by the nobility or by the
crown. In ITOi a small flock was sent to the
Elector of Saxony, as a present from the King
of Spain, whence the entire product of Sax
ony wool, now of such Immense value. In
ISO 9, during the second invasion of Spain by
the French, some of the valuable crown flocks
were sold, to raise money. The American
consnl at Lisbon, Mr. Jarvis, purchased four
teen hundred head, and sent them to this
country. A portion of the pure, numixed
merino blood of these flocks is to be found la
Vermont ut this time. Such was the origin
cf the immense flocks of finewooled sheep
in the United States.
