THE KELTS.
The bottom seems to have fallen out of
-the campaign In Virginia, and the only
prospect presented to Meade’s army ap
-peare to he the dissolving view of gtey

will not do to believe that our army have
fallen Into a cacchination over the
retreat of Lee. for the situation requires
caution, and tbe point of the joke Is'so
ine that any hours neglect may break it
off, but history will wrinkle her page at
the tale of Lee's last grasp at the north
Star, and points intermediate, for Ins friends
in- Northern Virginia can scarcely expect
him back, after thi&;
Our foreign relations arc looking well.

our South American cousins smile upon

BOSECfiaWS*
It did honor to the head and heart of
any loyal reader ol the Tiubcne two
mornings since, if a flash of pain and in
dignation instinctively met the startling
news for which the public were totally
Unprepared, that the favorite Commander
of the Army of the Cumberland had fallen
not only upon unfavorable criticism, but
before a fate which criticism was sum
moned to justify and explain. Time has
been when the loyal public has reen
lamented but inevitable senility bolstered
tip by the zealous confidence of the people,
and incapacity held in place by their
trust. Gen. Scott was for months retained
at the head of oor military affairs when
the great commander had long belore
yielded to the attacks of advancing age,
and the CMckahomlny hero dotted Vir
ginia with graveyards widely ere he
could be shaken out of the public grasp.
Such loyalty to men hampered the cause
they were set to serve, tied the handset
the Government that months before it
dared to remove them, saw the
necessity, hut waited for the con
viction to grown on the public mind
It is a sign of progress in tbic war,
a thorough confidence between Govern
ment and people, of a better stability in our
affairs, that a shining star is suddenly
plucked from, the military firmament be
cause the occasion demands it, iu the view
of the President, without waiting to
'ask the people or the army to he first con
vinced of the necessity. And it is loyalty
to the cause to relieve the Government at
ns early an hour as posable of the charge
ot captiousness or unfairness. Men view
the matter differently, now that a formal
indictment is made out against the late
commander at Chattanooga. , In this
aspect it is not gossip, nor a heartless
canvass of the fate of an unfortunate
to set forth the reasons that weighed to
produce this result Our Washington dis
patch gives copious extracts from the East
ern press, in the same vein, and to the same
effect as onr own of Wednesday morning.
There are grave reasons now folly set forth
as the basis of the action of President
Lincoln. Loyal men may mourn that
their idol has been broken, but the icon
oclasm was necessary If the hand that
struck the blow saw only weakness where
the country fondly imagined strength.
If there he mourning for Bosccrans let
it he first that the cause has lost the leader
he seemed to be, and let no loyal foot tom
aside from following the Government, to
pay devoirs at his shrine. Keep close the
yanks of loyalty. IfHosecr&ns is unjustly
assailed, his hour will come, meanwhile
the situation demands untarnished blades,
and Bay aids without fear and without
reproach.

salaries and other expenses paid by the
Sanitary Commission in this aty. We
have made inquiries and learn officially
that the facts are as follows:
1. No member of the Chicago Sanitary
Commission receives a cent ol remunera
tion, directly or indirectly, in money or in
business -advantages, for his services,*
though all devote much time to the work,
and some of the members have made large
sacrifices of time And income lor its sake.
2. Two ladies, Mrs. A- H, Hoge and
Mrs. W. A. Livermore, who are not mem
of the Commission (though by inadver
tence printed as such in one or two month
ly reports) arc paid by the United States
Sanitary Commission, to aid the general
work, under-the superitendence of the
. Commission here. They give their whole
time and unusual abilities to the business,
but draw nothing from this treasury.
3. The only expenses are for clerk-hire
in their rooms, postage, stationery, fuel
rent and similar ordinary disbursements,
necessary in conducting such large oper
ations, here and in the depot soldiers 1

The Removal of Gen,
Eosecrans.
RUMORS, AND REASONS ASSIGNED
FOR THE MEASURE.
Startling and Painful Revelation.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.}
W-AsmßoxoN, October 25, 1860.
TOE CASE or BOSECIIANS.
The Morning Chronicle contains the follow
ing “double-leaded” editorial:
“Wo are la receipt of aatbnlshing litslll-
Btoce In regard to the removal of Boaecrana.
The whole country will be astounded at
what wo ahall chronicle. It is rumored that
throe charge, ire made against tho late popu
lar commander. The first charge la preferred
hy Gen. T. 1., Crittenden and Gen.' McCook,
to the effect that Eosecrans left the battle
field during the crisis, and fled to Chatta
nooga and reported to officers there that the
day was lost. It was reported that subse
quently, through opium, ho became Insen
sible,
Tlie second charge, it Is rumored, is made
hj the Government, to the effect that his
orders were to remain at Chattanooga until
reinforcements should come.
The third charge, as rumored, is to the
effect that he declined to move from Mur*
frecsboro in June last, when ordered to do so
by the Government, as an opportunity was
offered to crush a large portion of his
army having been withdrawn to succor Jdhn
ston, who was operating against Grant.
If there charges are true, is it not most un
fortunate, as the name of Boseerans was a
talisman of immense weight.
New York papers make a sweeping accusa
tion that during the battle of Chlckamauga
Gcrurßorecrans, Crittenden and McCook were
asleep at Chattanooga.
We leant semi officially that lu regard to
Gen. Cxitleaden, tils statement is fclae, and
that nothing has warranted the circulation of
such paragraphs.
The blame, H is said, connected with the
failure of Chlckamauga, xoiU fall whoUg vpon
Rotcerau*.
In another editorial, apparently written be
lore the above, the Chronicle says it will
doubtless be generally assumed that General
BoscCians’ almost total absence from engage
ment was the principal reason fbr his being
relieved of the command, more especially as
the General who bore the bnmt of it, (Gen,
Thomas,) has been appointed In his stead.
We have reason to know that his conduct
on that occasion when news of the battle first
reached here, was severely censored by mili
tary authorities, and was probably the turn
ing point in the decision that his been
reached.
We hazard nothing in saying that prior to
that, there had been grave cause of complaint
against the GencraL St teat once before on the
tve cf being removed for a failing to move to aid
Grant, and make a diversion in his favor by
attacking Bragg.
At another time he was somewhat strongly
remonstrated with for his delay In moving
from Murfreesboro.
Gen. Boseerans has, in many things, shown
himself a good officer, and his enpersedure,
we believe, has been very reluctantly deter
mined on; but neglect of orders from Us su
periors, will unfit the best ™nn for a military
command.
TheAWng Jbrfof last evening says: We
aie salitfied the good cf the service demanded
Bcsccrans ’remotal, and that Is enough.
The stories concerning reasons for General
Rosecrans’ removal continue rife. One of the
latest la that he has rendered himself in a
measure unfit for duty by the excessive use
of opium.
The stories that Eosecrans, having epilep
tic flte,asdbeing injured by tho use of opium,
are repeated to-nigbt with great pertinacity,
but admitted that they are not the etnas of
his removal, that having been determined on
before they were known; Government officials
are repeating that dispatches shew, him to
have been fairly stampeded at Chlckamauga,
THE WAB ZX THJODfIA,
The Chronicle has the following concerning
Meade’s army: Thus lar the rebels have
made no stand ot consequence. In all prob
ability they itill not. The retrograde move
ment ol Lee has been attributed to several
catue?, but we are inclined to believe the
•chief reason of his precipitate flight is his
ffneern as to the result.
Oar cavalry find no enemy In possession of
Important gaps, and it is our impression that
Lee Is making haste to his Intrenchments.
To this statement of the Chronicle it may
be added, that our army had yesterday prose
cuted its pursuit Ve fax as to the south side
oftheE&pxrchanncck, hariDgp&ssed through
Warrentoa as long ago as last Tuesday. Of
course the stories of intense excitement hero
and the probable invasion of Maryland or
Pennsylvania, ot a battle being imminent in
front of Washington, of dangerto the capital
and the like, are absurd, and the whole ex
citement over the Eastern situation, present
here an aspect rather ridiculous than other
wise.
nriJGIOUSJFTELLIGEKCE,
The New School Presbyterian Svnod, in
session here, waited on the President in a
body to-day. In reply to their address, he
said, among other things, that he knew he
was not a great man, and considered It
among the wonders of the world that he was
where he was, but thought, perhaps, it was
better so since he relied upon God and other
people more.

Private letters received to day from Eo».

Mr. Adams has information that Mr. Laird

difficulties between that Government and
Aura hitfe been amicably settled, the only
: remaining questions are financial ones.
There is no present difficulty to be appre

ment cannot and will not object to the
'relation between these governments and
Juarez, No claim has been made for rocogrrf-*
lion by the Government of Maximllilan or the
Council of Notables that elected him.
The action of the English Government in
turning out Msson and seizing the rams is
regarded as establishing perfect understand
ing with onr Government, and the rebels
acknowledge it to he so by ordering off all
British Consuls. These occurrences are
believed to permanently settle the Interven

About two hundred and seventy conval
cecent soldiers from various regiments held, a
meeting at Camp Randal Hospital, express
ing their saliefactlon at tho result' of the
recent elections, and asking furloughs that
they might CT&tribatc to similar results, and
denouncing those who ore willing to sacrifice
the Union for their party, and prolong the
war by encouraging the South In their oppo
sition to the Administration.
Out of all IhoEe soldiers in the hospital
here, net more than six go for Palmer. It
teems doubtful whether the exigencies of
service will allow the Iron Brigade to re
tma home at present. The 6ih .Wls., for
some time engaged enforcing the draft In K.
Y, has rejoined the Potomac army. Hon.

fallen brek bohltd the Raopahannock. AU
our Informaata stath that Lee’s and Stuart’s

cause, but when tiey get within reach of

the camp rumors bearing semblance of troth
ere these:—That Lee’s headquarters are now
at Culpepper; that Ewell’s and Hill’s corps
are between Culpep>or and Warrentoa; that
Lee is greatly dhoppointed-at the failure cf

New York, Oct, 23.—The N. Y, Times has
the following letter;

the past three or four days there has been
very little firing on either side, the
enemy evidently waiting for the iron
clads to come up, for which event he U
saving ma ammunition- Admiral Dahlgren
a short time since,. expressed .his deter
mination to an officer high in rank to go
Charleston on the next trial, or else assure
himself that the iron-clads are .unequal to the
task. This will enhance the excitement o
the conflict, and do much towards settling
the dispute as to the amount of work the
iron-dads are capable of performing.
It is believed that James Island, is occupied
by 5,000 rebel troops. SalUyan’s Island la
supposed to be occupied by about the sane
number. In the immediate vicinity of

Tic Blaaell*Traey Trial.
Tbe result of tbe trial that has recently been
held at ; Rochester,—J. W, Bissell vs. Jno. F. Tra-
'ey, has been already announced in these columns,
but there aro some facta connected with the histo
ry of the case, and the course pursued In the pre
sent cxaminatlon,whlch are so Justly set forth in
the following, from the Rochester Union and Ad
vertiser of the ICUi, that we gladly publish the
article:
“The actionhroneht by J. W. Bissell. of this city,
against John F. Tracy, Superintendent of tac
Chicago and Rock -Island Railroad Co., has Just
been concluded In the- Circuit Court The Jury
took the case at noon yesterday, and camo inthis
morning with a verdict for plaintiff for SLGiO
damages.'
When this trial came on, we made preparation
to rtpoit it, supposing that It would bo a matter
of Interest to the public, bat the narrow limits to
which the evidence was confined, deprived the
case of Ita chief interest. We supposed that tes
timony relating tq the famous conspiracy to burn
Rock Island bridge over the Mississippi would
be brought out, and this the defendant proposed
Tv £o into, but the plaintiff objected, and it was
rcledout.
.Mi . n.esell was charged with a conspiracy to
destroy the Vwldge. Mr. Tracy had charge of
tbe bridge, ax'd, as appears by the testimony,
believed that !t was intended to destroy that
bridge, and that Blseell was the agent. Hence
Le pioccsded against him. caused him to be ar
rtsted and Indicted. The indictment was tried
and an acoftlllil obtained It Is now alleged upon
a technicality.. It is said that another indictment
awaits trial now. 'When the arrest was made Bis
: sell was detained at tho private roomsof apollcv
; man instead ofbeing loosed la Jad, and this for
■ a lew borne, for which tbe Grand' Jary found an
' indictment. Ilcwaa then taken to the Recorder's
Court. It was ccnmUincd that this detention was
illegal. It was made by an rtScer who held a valid
warrant, and the plaintiff admitted on this
trial that there . was probable cause
for the Issue of the warrant. It was
ccevrsaiy to show that Tracy directed In thle* dc
t>stton. and upon this tbe question turned. He
tefrttUed that bo did not direct tbe officer. and the
officer swore that be did not take directions from'
Tracy. It was shown that-the whole proceeding
was madethedlrectlonoftbo Prosecuting Attor
ney of the people at Chicago; yet the Jaryfiod *
verdict of $1,636 for plaintiff After looking over
ail tbe testimony, we are surprised that tbe ver
dict was such as It Is. We suspect it la more than
Mr Blssell expected to receive In view orthe tact
that the Conn was at one time upon the point of
granting a non-suit.
Another suit for malicious' prosecution was on
the calendar, and had this Men brought to trial
tbe matter of the bridge conspiracy with all its
curious features would have probably come out.
This suit was withdrawn yesterday by the plaintiff,
; though it Is said tbe defendant was anxious to h-ive
it tried, that he might vindicate himself of the
-charge of malice, and show up all the testimony
w hlca itdncfed bun to proceed against the plaintiff
forcoLfipiracy.
In the trial which has just been completed, the
most interesting testimony was excluded, and the
whole matter reduced to a very em*U point. Tue
question of malice on the part of defendant, or of
guilt of conspiracy bn the part of plaintiff, has not
been touched
t The conned for defendant intimated an Inten
tion to appeal tbe case. It Is not Impossible that
another trial or tbe iaatn; may take place here, and
itdots cotthertfore become us to give an expres
sion upon tbe merite of the controversy wnlch
may Influence tho action of a jury either way.
That ia no part of the duty of the press.
Mr.BisEcilallourcltizcus know. Mr. Tracy is
a gentleman who bolds highly responsible poal
fois. and we arc assured by those who Know him
that he stands high at tho West as a man of In
tegrity.
A Statement from LIU & Diversr-
Chicago, Oct. 22,1863.
Editors Chicago Tribune:
In an article on the Lake Tunnel In your issue of
this morning, signed by James Hamilton, Civil
Eugkeer, the reasons given for our not using the
well we dng just north of oor premises, are gross
ly erroneous from beginning to end.
Mr. Hamilton says, “the well was dng before
the city hydraulic works were moved from the
foot of lake street, on the South Side, to their
present location on the North Side.” The fact is,
the well was dug in the summer of l£6i
Mr. Hamilton eays, secondly, the city would
have charged them (ns) for the water tue same as
If they used it, as all property fronting on streets
through which the water pipes are laid Is taxed
for tbo water. Ourtay if we did cot nsetbc water
would be lees than fifty dollars a year, whereas we
now have to pay at the rate of twelve hundred dol
laisayear.
Mr. Hamilton rays “thirdly and lastly,” because
they found It would be too expensive to raise the
water from said well bv maentntry, and from it
through the various and very extensive depart
ments In connection with their Urge brewery.
The troth U, we cug the well for the express
purpose of pumping too water Into alt parts of our
brewery, hnd eboula have been greatly the gainers
.by the operation could we have used the water.
If the rest of Mr. Hamilton's article contains aa
much, “light on the question of supplying the city
with pure water,” as tl.© above extracts, what
Messrs. Editors, do yon call darkness on such a
subject. Lirx Jfc Divxrst.
