THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22. 1803.
xar Mtrs,
This time If there shall be fighting in Yir
ginia, it will be because the President has
ordered it, and orders'Meade to go ahead
give Lee the sharp edge of the cam*
paign, leaving the responsibility with him,
Apparently nothing is left this time to
Halleck, but a bundle of documents when
the time for reposts comes, even if he gets
them. Let ns hope Old fellow’s occupa
tion’s gone. The President is Commander*
an-Chief in deed as well as fact
Oar Washington dispatch discusses as a
leading topic, the case of Bosecrans, the
chief theme of discussion of loyal men
throughout the country yesterday, and
almost universally with' sadness and dis
appointment. But the impression con
veyed by our Washington reporter is iden
tical with that sought to be created in oar
last issue. It is unjust to the Government
to allow the belief to obtain that fhia bolt
has fallen out of a clear sky upon a popular
and loved commander. The Government
is not punishing a servant for too much
success. We felt it would be of service to
light a little of the mystery, and show our
leaders the clouds that had been forming
about Bosecrans’ fame. The President
has not acted without a cause. It is not
•our province to weigh the accusations,
pending the healing of which Bosecrans
is set aside. With a feeling of regret, in
which oar readers all share, we shall await
official investigation of Ida case, which
cannot long be delayed.
The Bntish ram builder Laird, is in a
bad fix and may get be plagaed by
his zeal to serve the cause ol
Par better to hare sold out the whole ven
ture to the Danes, and gone into some re
spectable business.
Our Louisville letter, from a special cor
respondent of reliability and judgments
contains interesting and important matters
Of news relating to the new military de
partment of Gen. Grant
East Tennessee is cleared of rebels, and
■Oen. Bumade’e official report shows how
it was done. True, they may come badk
again, for, like the Canada thistles, the
breed is hard to get rid ot Bat the ex
‘terminating machine is firmly planted at
Knoxville, and the process of extirpation
will continue till success is readied. Brave
Parson Brownlow and gallant Maynard
are both on the old stamping ground, and
lifting up their voices for Immediate
Emancipation as the only core for East
Tennessee. Think of that, and thank
God for progress. We arc not set fast in
the dough. The wheels still move, though
heavy with the mire and held back by
balky leaders. We shall strike “firmer be
cause higher ground presently. Some
there may be who will desire to carry por
tions of this dough along with them, hut
Brownlow and Maynard bespeak none of
it for their section.
It is calculated to bespeak the sympathy
of all humane persons,the statement that
the rebel Government, with its heavy
freight of other woes, has that other added
evil of .military cotton thieves; The Fed
eral Government is strong backed, and
can bear, without inconvenience, these
parasites, as if an elephant should bo trou
bled with ticks, hut for the sickly and
spindling rebel institution to be afflicted in
this way, is too much. As much as we de
spise a rebel, we have tenfold more detest
ation for the wretch who would superadd
cotton frauds to the othen griefs of Jeff.
Davis and his brethren. It is much as if
a thief should steal a lame beggar’s crutch
wherewith to boil his private pot Wc
wonder whether the rebel operators caught
the disease of some of our fellows, say by
a flag of truce. Happily the doctors at
■Washington are studying the disease, and,
upon the military cadaver too, as some of
our officers will shortly find to their cost
But that does not help the rebels, whom
to rob in such a strait is the very inverted
pinnacle of meanness.,
Bravo 1 Gen. Banks has landed in Tex
as with two plump and splendid army
corps. Having put matters in Louisiana
cn a basis where they will run well with
out his watching, he has gone down to
plug the main vent of the Confederacy,
and stop their famous Matamoras rat-hole.
Henceforth, a long farewell to the brisk
trade of the rich argosies, inward bound
with munitions and stores for suffering gov
ernment and pinched people, and outward
hound with fat cargoes of the flocculent sta
ple. Through Matamoras the rebels had
their suction hose laid on with the outride
world. Gen. Banks will stop all that
forthwith. And let the Emperor of the
French study the position, also. It is
much more convenient to cross the Rio
Grande on pontoons than to bridge the
Atlantic with keels. In the event tnat our
complications take such inevitable direc
tion, it is sound policy to have one of our
national Banks handy to draw short date
drafts on Mexico, and help our tawny
cousins out of their little scrape.
THE TIME TABLE.
Our article in yesterday’s issue, urging
our Chicago rail way managers to adopt a
winter rime table for Chicago, without
any reference to the dictation of the New
York roads, meets the approbation of our
business public. So far as we have been
able to learn, the opinion in its favor is ur
gent and unanimous. AH agree that the
reasons wc stated for leaving Chicago at a
time that will best promote the interests
of our business public, should be conclu
sive. About nine o’clock is unquestiona
bly the best starting hour for our Western
Toads, and if it takes an hour later in the
evening, in the winter, to reach the termi
ni of our roads in Wisconsin and lowa, it
will still be much better than by the ab
surd arrangement of the past winter. If
our roads will only act in concert in this
matter, they can control it perfectly, and
In accordance with their own best inter
ests, and that of our citizens.

FROM WASHINGTON.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribute.]
Washington, Oct. 21, 1863.
THE REMOVAL OP EOSECBANS.
The removal of Gen. Bosecrans of course
constitutes an observing topic of general dis
cussion, The public are very much mystified
to ascertain Us reasons, and up to this even
ing some of the very highest Government
officials were without information concerning
. it. The street has a story that Bosecrans
on one or two occasions been attacked by
epileptic fits in critical periods, and that It
was considered therefore unsafe to leave the
command in his hands. But this is absurd.
It is very well known that Bosecrans’ rela
tions with the.War Department and with the
General-in-Chief, have not been cordial for a
long time. After the Murfreesboro fight
there were serious complaints of his display
ing a ijant of presence of mind, and the Gov
ernment found fault with his failure to move
rapidly upon Bragg after that battle. It is
also certain that his movement upon Chatta
nooga was censured as being too slow,
and it is intimated here, that his subse
quent movements were regarded a$ har
ing gone to the other extreme!
Bis correspondence with the Commander
in-chief particularly after the last battle was
said to he somewhat sharp and to lay the
blame for disaster upon Government for not
properly supporting him. It seems certain
that the removal has been under considera
tion for some time, and that the President
has been gradually making up his mind to it.
Prominent officials have said that when c rr
respondenoe comes to be laid before the
public, therelll be a general feeling of re
lief that Bose crons is no longer intrusted
with the responsibility of his late command.
Secretary Stanton’s visit west is bdieted to
have had something to do with the change.
Be met Gen. Grant at Lonlsvillo and had a
long conference with him on move
ments In this department.
Ohioans and other western men here, of
course regret Bosecrana’ removal and give no
credit to reasons for it that imply anything
prejudicial to the gencrol favorite. Still the
feeling on all hands is that the Government
must have had some good reasons for so
grave an act and a determination is expressed
to fmpend judgment uctU the facts are folly
elicited.
THE WIB EC VTEGIKXA. •
' On Monday last Kilpatrick’s cavalry divis
ion in pursuing Lee’s army, crowded Stuart’s
cavalry beyond Gainesville in the direction of
Warrenton. Considerable fighting occurred,
but very little loss befel our troops. A large
force lof Lee’s army was believed to be at
Warrenton, on Monday, and had formed in
battle array and posted their artillery to check
the advance of Meade’s forces. Our troops
were moving steadily on, their columns being
so disposed as to prevent surprise, and to
clean out the enemy.
Bnfbrd’s division took the road through
Thoroughfare Gap, and found no enemy there*
Our loss In killed, wounded and missing,
was about 200. Several wagons, one of
which contained the official papers of the
brigade, were captured.
At one o’clock to day, several of our corps
were reported marching against the enemy,
and a battle was considered imminent.
The recent forward movement of Gen;
Meade is explained by a remark of Mr. Lin
coln’s on Saturday. He said Meade must
attack, and if he gained a victory he should
have all the credit, and if defeated, he, the
President, would. assume all the responsi
bility.

THE EXCHANGE OF FEISOKEBS.

declaration of exchange having been announc
ed by E. Quid, Commissioner of Exchange
at Richmond, dated Sept 12ih, 1803, it is
hereby declared that all officers and men of
the United States army captured and paroled
previous to the Ist of September, 1863, are
doty exchanged, and they are ordered to join
their respective regiments immediately.
New Tons, Oct. 2L—The Commercial?»
Washington letter contains a rumor that
Gen. Meade is to be superseded by General
Sedgwick or Gen. Sickles.
The new fractional currency will probably
be suppressed as a failure, both as regards

there is telegraphic communication with the

Milwaukee, Oct. 21, 1863.
The yonng men’s Union Mass meeting was
held in this city to-day, and although not as
largely attended as was anticipated, passed off
to the satisfaction of all present.
In the afternoon a huge assemblage met in
the Academy of MuslCr where they were ad
dressed by Hon. J. D. Ward ol yonr city In a
most eloquent and patriotic speech, at the
close cf which the meeting adjourned to meet
at 7 o’clock this evening In front of the New
hall House.
The meeting this evening folly equals the
most sanguine expectations. The Newhall
House is brilliantly illuminated from garret
to basement, and beautiful and appropriate
transperences arranged around the balconies
and speakers 1 stand.
At an early hour a large Hass Meeting as
sembled on the ground. The meeting was
opened by Hon. George G.* Bellows, of this
city, in a few appropriate remarks, after
which the resolutions were read by E. P.
Hotchkiss, of tela city.
The resolutions congratulate thepeopleup
on the recent glorious victories in Ohio and
Fcnnaylyaala and lowa, and regard them as
the death knell to Copperheadistn in‘Wiscon
sin. Expressing confidence in the adminis
tration, and finally pledging the earnest co
operation of all Union loving, loyal men of
Wisconsin in assisting in crashing traitors at
home and abroad.
The resolutions were received with un
bounded enthusiasm, and unanimously adopts
ed. Hon. 6. W. Eazelton of Columbia Co.,
was then introduced, and made one of the
best speeches of the evening. He was fol
lowed by Hon. J. E. Arnold, of this city, who
spoke In his usual eloquent and forcible style.
I regret that I am unable to give you a synop
sis of this excellent speech, as well as those
of others delivered at the meeting.
Of the result of the approaching election
in this State you need have no fear. The glo
rious successes of Ohio and Pennsylvania
have roused the people to a full sense of
their duty, and Wisconsin will do her foil
share toward making up the grand pyramid

[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Cairo, Oct. 21 t 1863.
The steamer Liberty arrived this morn
ing from Memphis with advices to the eve
ning ofthe!9lh last. TheAryus has Little
Rock news to the Uth lost. All was quiet
there.
On the 26th ult Gen. E. Kirby Smith visit
ed the rebel army at Arkadelphla, and finding
Daddy Price's forces demoralized, relieved
him from the command and placed General
Holmes in his stead.
The officers and men have harbored feelings
of hatred towards Holmes ever since the bat
tle ef Helena; consequently the supersedore
of Holmes over Price produced a mutiny.
Both officers and men swore they woald not
snbmlt to the change of commanders. The
streets of Arkadelphia and roads leading to
the camps were crowded with soldiers and
officers in confusion. Between Tuesday af
ternoon and Thursday morning, from 500
to 700 men deserted. The whole combined
force of the Trans-Mississlppl Department is
estimated at less than 20,000 men. O wing to
the dissatisfaction of a part of the men, and
to prevent desertions the army wss moved
farther South.
The comm iscary and Quartermaster's stores
had been removed to Waco, on ibe Rio Brazos
River. Gen. Smith’s headquarters are at
Manhoß. Gen. Shelby had crossed into
Arkansas fa the direction of Missouri, to
look after a number of Missourians who had
deserted. He bad 800 well mounted men.
CoL Cloud had gone in pursuit of him.
Since the defeat of the Confederates at
Helen, a bitter feeling existed between Gens.
Price and Holmes. On Holmes superseding
Price the animosity increased, and resulted
in a challenge to fight a duel. The difficulty
was settled by the friends of the two officers,
and they were the best friends again! This
reconciliation had good effect on Holmes’
command.
A strong Union feeling had begun to man
ifest itself in Northern Texas about the time
the news was received of the surrender of
Vicksburg and Port Hudson, and secret organ
izations were formed. A number of men
holding situations under the Confederate
Government were active members. At the
August election, Morgan, the Union can
didate, was elected, and the present
Congressional. District comprises nineteen
of the most northern counties in the State.
The people of that section are very much in
censed at the military rulers on account of
cotton transactions which have come to light.
Through the agency of Gen. Magruder an
agent was appointed by the Bichmond Gov
ernment to purchase cotton in Texas. to pay
for ammunition, purchased of the French
and English, then stored at Matamoras.
Seven thousand boles were purchased, ship
ped, and sold, not, however, for the benefit
of the Confederacy, but on private account.
The matter was Inquired into by a Commis
sion, and only ninety holes conld be found.
then issued an order to seize
cotton from planters to supply the deficiency.
This order caused planters to denounce Ma
gxuder as a partner in the operation.

To Major General Halleck:
On ttie-Sth lust., the enemy held down as far
as Blue Springs, and a cavalry brigade of ours
held Bull’s Gap, supported by a small body
of infantry at Morristown,
I accordingly dispatched a brigade of cav
alry around by BogersvQle, to intercept the
enemy’s retreat, and with a considerable body
of in&ntry and artillery moved to Bull’s Gap.
On Saturday, the 10th instant, 1 advanced a
cavalry brigade to Blue Springs, where they
found the enemy strongly posted and offering
stubborn resistance.
Skirmishing continued until about 5 o'clock
in the evening, when I sent in a division of
infantry, who charged, and cleared the woods
gallantly, driving the enemy in confusion
until dork. During the night the enemy re
treated precipitately, leaving their dead on
the field, and most of their wonnded in our
hands. We- pursued In the morning, with
infantry and cavalry.
The intercepting force met them at Hen
derson's, but, owing ‘to a misunderstanding,
withdrew, and allowed them to pass with on
ly a slight check. The pursuit was continued
until evening, when I withdrew most of my
infantry, and retreated to this place.
Gen. Shackleford, with his cavalry and a
brigade of infantry, continued the pursuit,,
the enemy making a stand at every important
position, hat he has driven them completely
from the State. Wo have captured the Fort
at ZoUlcoffer. and burnt the long railroad
bridge there, and five other bridges, and de
stroyed three locomotives, and about thirty
five cars. His advance is now ten miles be

Our loss at Blue Springs, and in the pur
suit, was about 100 killed and wonnded. The
enemy's loss was considerably greater. About
150 prisoners were taken. Signed,

New Yohk, Oct. 81.—The Port Royal
Kew Smith of the 17th*contains the fallowing:
The United States steamer Bienville, ot the
Western Guli squadron, touched- at this port
oa her way to Philadelphia for repairs.
. She brings important intelligence which
had been received at New Orleans before her
departure, that a grand, expedition under
Major General Banks had effected a landing
at Point Isabel, Texas, a small place at the
mouth of. ths Rio Grande River, with two
corps, one under Franklin, and the other
under a Major General whose name we did
sot learn.
The successful occupation; of Point Isabel
wDI give ns, in a short time, tbe possession
of Brownsville, which is opposite Matamo
ras, Mexico—the grand centre port of the
rebels from which munitions oi war, and
needed supplies are transferred across the
Rio Grande to the formerplaeeby smallboats.
A large portion of tbe Confederate cotton
which has been sent to Europe to purchase
supplies, has passed through Brownsville to
Anglo-Rebel blockade runners, lying on the
Mexican or neutral side of the river.
Of course our occupation of the place will
effectually put a stop to this alleged traffic,
and at the same time will enable our blockade
to close the river with a small force.
In one other matter the occupation of Tex
as will have on Important .hearing. It will en
able the Government to keep a powerful corps
of observation on'the very borders of the
theatre of French aspirations in Mexico,
which may be made quickly available, In case
our complicated relations with Napoleon
should result in a war with that grasping and
unprincipled potentate.
Major Gen. Banks, always active and ever
victorious, will soon be In possession of all
important points in Texas, and practically of
the entire State. It is understood that anoth
er corps of his army is co-operating with him
from the Bed River country.
We anticipate glorious news from that in
teresting quarter by next steamer.
FROM MADISON.
THE CAMPAIGN PEOSPEOTS
IN WISCONSIN.
IBpcdal Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Madison, Oct- 21,1863.
The prospects for a Union victory In this
State are cheering, the only fear being that
Union voters, too confident of success, may neg
lect to f'ote.
Senator T. O. Howe, United States District
Attorney Cogswell, and others, have lately
been making speeches in the southwestern
part of the State, where Union strength is
daily Increasing.
Joel G. Squires, long known as a prominent
Democratic politician, in Grant and lowa
counties, bolts the Palmer Copperhead ticket.
Copperheads report that Colonel Lucius
Fairchild, since his promotion to a Brigadier
Generalship, will decline the Union nomina.-
lion as Secretary of State. They need not
•Hatter themselves.
The. Journo? says, by authority, that though
greatly preferlng to remain in arms, and
sacrificing much in leaving after consenting
to be a candidate for Secretary, he will keep
his word and will run, and if elected will
serve to the best ot his ability in that office.
A reliable Washington correspondent says
that Col. Fairchild waited on the President
lost week, and expressed his pnrpoee of re
signing before election, and that tho Presi
dent, who has been contemplating giving him
a commission as Brigadier General, since the
battle of Gettysburg, determined bef> re ac
cepting his resignation, to confer on him the
honors of promotion, as an acknowledgment
of his services as the senior Wisconsin Colo
nel in the ixen brigade.
There is quite a gathering of Copperheads
here to-night, the speakers are Jndge Mallory,’
of Milwaukee, and Palmer, candidate for Gov
ernor, and George D. Smith, of this city.
the ball by a speech denoun
cing almost everything that what he called
Lincoln’s Government, had done, including
the increase of the regular army, and the first
call for volunteers before the meeting of Con.
grees. The attack upon onr vol
unteer- army and some remarks made
about officers, control of soldiers’ votes
and kindred matters, stirred up some sol
diers present, who denied his falsehoods to
bit face. He is still talking at this writing.
The ladies of this city have been zealously
working for your Northwestern Fairs in aid
of .the soldiers, and will make a highly cred
itable contribution, Including 700 fhney arti
cles, valued at several hundred dollars.
A large amount of edibles and hospital del
icacies, sugar mills and 'other manufacturers,
worth over SI,OOO in money, and other arti
cles, were on exhibition to night for the ben
efit of the came.
THE WAR IN VIRGINIA.
1 Stirring Time Promised.
Washington, 21st.—Advices from the army
of the Potomac say that the right column ad.
vanced yesterday to within three miles of
Wanenton, and the left column as far as
Greenwich village.
Out advance entered Warrcnton without
serious opposition, contrary to the general
expectation. The conclusion is, that the
rebels arc really retrekting before onr ad
vance.
New Tore, Oct Sl.—Tho Washington spe
cial of the New York Tribune says:
Your correspondent “Beta” reports the
Army of the Potomac in full pursuit of the
retreating rebel forces. Trains ran oat to
Bristow to-day, and large quantities of rail
road material are being transported for put
ties: tho track in repair and rebuilding the
bridges. The rebels destroyed the track for
mOee, burning the ties and digging down
grading. A prisoner asserts that It is entirely
destroyed for twenty-lonr miles beyond Cat
lett’s, and that Lee’s object was to capture
supplies and so disable the road that we could
not disturb him until another corps of his
army could he sent to Bragg and return.
Our forces ore in the meantime pushing on,
but thus far without opposition, or anylndi
cations of being able to halt Lee and force a
general engagement this side of tho Bap idan.
Onr cavalry captured about a dozen prison
ers last night, at Catlett’s.
An orderly of Gen. Merritt’s came in from
the advance at 4 this a, m., reporting a con
considerable body of cavalry and infantry ad
vancing up the road, but up to dark no de
monstrations were made,and itis supposed to
have been merely a strong picket force for the
night.
Large numbers of .our cavalry are being
refitted with fresh horses and equipments,
and every thing put in preparation for vigor
ous work.
The Washington special to the New York
limes, says:
The mystery ol Lee's movement lost week
Is uncovered. Fart of his army was at Cul
pepper this morning, being vigorously em
barked on trains of cars for the Southwest.
An officer just in from the front brings in
telligence that Lee's whole infantry force is
south of the Rappahannock. Some of his
cavalry are still on thb tide and a part on tho
other. i
Our reserve cavalrf, under Gen. Merritt,-
yesterday advanced u hr as Warrenton
Junction, meeting bntfew rebel cavalry, who
retired as we advanced
■Washington, Oct. a.—Accounts from the
Army of tho Potomacto yesterday noon state
that Kilpatrick's cavalry pushed backStuart’s
rebel cavalry beyond Gainesville towards
Warrenton. - Therews considerable fighting,
but little loss to us.
- It is positively sUtel that Lee was at War
renton on Monday, one bad formed a line of
battle and posted artil’ery. Our troops were
moving steadily onwatd In two columns.
Buford reports that there was no enemy iu
force in Thoroughfare Gap.
At ten yesterday p.m. the rebels were In
force at Buckland'fl kills, four miles from
GainesviUe. Our troopr are an vauclng. A

IBM GREAT NORTHWESTERN
FAIR.
Encouraging Prospects for its Success.
Th 6 Fair inaugurated by the noble-hearted ladies
of tho Northwest, for the benefit of the Sanitary
Commission, promises to he one of the most suc
cessful enterprises of the kind ever undertaken In
the World. We do not mean that the number of
articles on exhibition will he greater, or that more
money will be realized, than from any other ex
hibition, bnt that it is a novelty in its way—an
original idea, and that it promises to be.success
ful beyond the most sanguine expectations of its
felr projectors. How could it be otherwise than a
success? Tho object is a noble one; every dime
realized will go to the needy and deserving soldier
—those whose gallant services have entitled them
to a nation’s gratitude. It is inaugurated by the
ladles of the Sanitary Commission—an institution
whose mission is benevolence, whose labors are
gratuitous, and a necessary complement of the
military service, and a medium through which the
non-combatant can show his devotion to his coun
try. Hundreds of the noblest men and women in
all parts of the country are laboring to make the
Fair an immense svccess, and they will be fully
satisfied with the result, we * think, Judging
from present prospects. Our Chicago bus
iness men are responding promptly and liberally
to the calls of the ladles, and many have sent for
ward handeomo contribution before called upon.
Aside from the satisfactions of having performed
their duty, these donations will prove a paying in
vestment in a pecuniary point of view. what a
Bopnlar mode of advertising—viewing it in that
gnt 7 All of the Chicago, and one-half of the pa
pers of the entire Northwest are chronicling these
coble gilts, and names and business firms are car
ried to nonsehol da where they were never beard
of before, and are cherished in the grateful hearts
of the thousands who have sons, nrothere, bus*,
hands and fathers in the field. Thenagain, these
donations will, of course, be properly displayed
and labeled at the Fair, so that the tens of thou
sands of visitors thereat daring its two weeks’
continuance, will have an opportunity of Inspect
ing thd wares and making the acquaintance of
their donors. * _.
The city of Milwaukee Is doing nobly. The
Chamber of Commerce has donated S3OO, and the
business men at large over $1,500. Nor is this all
that our sister sister is doing. The German ladles
of Milwaukee, under the leadership of that pure
patriot, Mrs. Governor Salomon, are preparing
fancy articles of most unique description and
great value, and it Is quietly whispered about that
it will be tho moat brilliant display over witnessed
in tiie West. *
Pittsburgh has sentwordthat they have shipped
$5 OGO worth of manufactures, Ac., and it has been
hinted that twenty of the moat beautiful young
ladies from that city ore coming, upon their own
responsibility, to attend to the exhibition of their
donations, and to assist In conducting the affairs
of the Fair. •
So it is from every quarter—the people are com
!n» up nobly to the work. We can hardly name a
city, town, village or neighborhood, but are at
work for the Fair
