' It is a fact, confessed by all honest men,
that this war could and would be stopped
in a day if the people of the South should
unanimously and sincerely declare that
they would hereafter be only commonly
honest and pay a day’s wages for a day’s
work. Baying that, there would remain
no motive for them to cany it on. They
commenced it only that, they : might hare’
more laborers to toil for them without pay,
and more land upon which laborers might
Work.. That’s the enact, truth stripped of
r all its disguises, clad in plain English. At
the bottom, the war is a question of the
" "Wages of Labor—nothing less nor more.
"The laboring man, then, no matter what
his color or condition, who imagines that
"he can 'safely take'the ground with the
-South, and thus practically maintain that
a day’s work is not always and everywhere
Worthy of its reward, knows nothing of the
force and tar-reaching effect of the prin
ciple to which be is committed. He' is
a fool, whom nothing hut the wisdom of
, wiser men will save thorn bondage, which
force or fraud is all the while seeking to
impose; Men of toil, this is your question,
and upon the way it is settled, depend your
condition and the condition of your chil
dren. It touches the foundation stone, the
very vital principle, oi our Govern-"
ment, which is this: .“Before God
“and the law,’ in whatever .pertains
“ to my rights as a man, lam as good as
"yon; you are as good asl am. Iwillnot
“trenchupon your rights; you must not -
“ trench upon mine 1” That’s the bond of
"Union among the American people, and
when it is severed by the success of the
South in its impious assertion; “Ton, in
“whateverpertains to the rights of man,
“ are not, before God and the law, as good
“aslam; lam better than'you are. I -
“ will trench upon your rights^— your right
“to your labor, the right of ownership of
“yourself; you shall not trench upon
mine,” —there is not vitality enough in the
EepuUic nor in the professions of Democ
racy which underlie it, to save our govern
mental fabric from rotting down into des
potism or anarchy as quick! V; as a mush
room decays. The cry of “ Nigger! Nig
ger 1” which points to a variation from our
standard of taste and beauty, in the color
of the [human skin, no more affects the
principle that we assert, than the cry of
“Irishman] Irishman 1” expressing a na
tionality different from our owit, affects it-
If a man may be robbed ol bis day’s work,-
because bis cuticle is black, why may be
not be robbed in the same way, if his hair
is red, or his birth-place is in a foreign land ?
If he may be enslaved because he is friend
less and weak, all but the strongest man
will be in bends.
These arc dog-cared truisms to all Anti.
Slavery men; hut we like to bring our
readers hack to the foundation stone of
our inalienable rights, and to show in what
an evil, dangerous, nay, deadly thing, this
Woody war has its root. "We like to prove
that the struggle is, when stripped of the
disguises and sophisms that partisanship
invents, a question of "Work and Wages—
not a question of races, nor of soil, nor of
climate, “Pay me wages for my labor
rendered I” is the universal demand of
working-men.' Is it unreasonable? Let
the people of the South put aside their
whips, throw away- their branding-irons,
forge their fetters into horse-shoes, shoot
their blood-hounds, and otherwise dispose
the cruel enginery by which men
and women are compelled to work for
nothing, and answer, “We will!” and
stick to what they say —the war would
stop in a day.
AMCTCKT A JIP_Fj[*?IXrS3EtIINC
OF COFPBB.
«.We assure -our readers that the para*
graph quoted "below is not from Copper*
head sources. Though it reads like a model
editorial in anyone of the half dozen or*
gans of Jeff Davis that we could name,
or like a quotation from a Copperhead
gathering called to embarrass the Govern*
ment and discourage the people, or per*
haps more like so many sentences from
one of Governor Seymour's speeches, it
is of more patriotic origin, being a part of
the Address of the Federal party in the
Legislature of Massachusetts, to the people,
daring the last war with Great Britain:
** Icstsnccs of military oppression have already
occurred sicorg up, and a watchfd pesple, jealous
of their lights, meet have observed tome attempts
to coLtiol their elections end to prostrate the
■civil bdote the military authority. • • • AnH
permit up, in condnelon, most earnestly to re
vest that measures may immediately be adopted
to stay tie sword of the destroyer, end to prevent
the farther tffesion of bumcn blood; that oar in
vadirg armies may he forthwith recalled withia
onr own territories: and that ever; effort of oar
rulers may be speedily directed to the attainment
of a Joetard honorable peace, that mutual confi
dence aid commercial protperttr may be again re
store d to onr distracted and sofierlng country, and
that by an upright and faithful administration of
cur Govcn ment, let* e true spirit of the Const!*
tntlon, its bl» seines may be equally diffused to
every portion of the Union,”
We beg pardon of the ghosts of the de
funct Federalists, if any are allowed to
visit this earth, for the supposition that the
paragraph to which we refer was taken
from the editorial columns of Mr. J. Davis’
organ in this city—-the fire-in-the-rear
Times. The similarity of'the extract to
what we every day read in that organ, de
ceived us. But how true it isthat treason,
even of this cowardly sort, has its own
language, which varies little ; in different
cases. Has the editor of the 'Time* a file
of some old Federal paper of 1812-T5,
from which its choicest attacks on the
Government and on the war are made up f
ADVICE TO CO PPEEHE IDS.
When the people will not vote the Cop
perhead ticket at an election, lay the con
sequent defeat of that ticket to the vote of
the soldiers who were sent home by the
President to interfere with elections.
Thal’sJhe dodge. And when It -can be
proved that one hundred invalid soldiers,
at home on sick furlough, have voted, just
say and swear that the number was a dean
fifty thousand, and that the 4 ‘usurper”
and “tyrant” Lincoln, gave each one of
them money out of the treasury to defray
his expenses. That’s another dodge. But
be sure to conceal the fact that a soldier
does not, by bearing arms, lose his rights
as a citizen.
Perhaps we cany coals to Newcastle, in
tendering this advice to Copperheads.
Probably our readers may remember to
have seen in the Copperhead journals
that this course has been generally adopted.’
If it has not been It will be. And.why.
not f Is not lying the strong card in Cop
perhead policy ? Without it, what would
the party do?
JVIG&SIiT KOT CONFESSED.
The assumption of the Jeff. Davis organ
when, in the plcniitude of its
. it charges the officers of the Sanitary Com
mission with an abuse of their trusts, and
, fails to call forth a reply from the gentle
men assailed, is of a piece with the general
conduct of that disloyal sheet. It betrays
the methods by which it has convicted the
President of a violation ol the Constitution,
the t Republican party, of disloyalty, the
ariny of merciless brutality, and the peo
ple of a desire to exterminate the South.
But that method won’t win.j That the
jnm who have given more than two years
of their time to the service of the sick and
wounded soldiers of the Federal army,
without compensation of any sort, do not
turn hack to kick every whelp that harks
at their heels, surely is no confession that
they arc dogs! - *
BOW THEV SQtIRST.
How they writhe and squirm—the Cop
pexheads who have predicted, as they
toped, that the country was going to ruin
ikster than they can lie—that is, with
speed unexampled in all the world. How
they squirm, under the flattering condi
tion of the national finances, and the firm
ness ot the national credit "With
ghastly grins they speak of the onward
progress of our arms, the impoverishment
and prospective disentregatibn of the
Southland the content, unity and pros
perity of the people cf the North. AH
dhdr predictions of woe are falsified by
events—ull tbeir hopes blasted by facts.
Jeff. Davis looks to them appealingly, and
bis underlings send up, through the press,
piteous supplications for something—some
other New York riot, some possible or im
possible. revolution in the Northwest, some
successful assault upon Mr. Chase’s fin an- ■
cial system, some efficient check upon vol
unteering, some wide spread resistance to
the draft—something in the way of relief
Help us.or we perish! is the despairing
ay that comes from.every traitor throat!
Copperhead, like Barkis, is willing. But
Copperhead isafraid. Qc can do nothing
- bat squirm and'dart out his forked tongue.
Crushed and mangled by the bravery of
our troops and the enduring patriotism of
the people. Copperhead is a dying snake.
It is,only to let himTwig
gje his’lail in defiance as long las he.lives.
He is too justly hated to be permitted the
services of any one who will “put him out
of his misery” . '
TTANTEB-AIfOrHEB TELP£B.| _
•Wanted—another Chicago, organ of Jeff
Davis, to assail the Sanitary Commission,
and the ladies who arc responsible for the
Great. Fair. The efforts of tlie Times in
that direction Have been' followed by such
an increase ’ and such an
ontpooring of the people, that there is rea
son to believe that if it could be reinforced,
by another sheet of similar ; fiendislmess,
the usefulness of the Commission would be
greatly enlarged and the receipts of the
Fair more than doubled. Would it not be
a good plan for the friends of the Commis
sion to engage the Cincinnati Enquirer,
the Springfield Register or the Dubuque
Herald to pitch in ? -
AN IMPROBABLE RUMOR.
A rumor, brought* back from thfi enemy
by the bearers of a recent flag of truce, re
ceived at Cairo a day or two ago, is to the
effect that Gen. Banks and his entire staff
had been made prisoners in Louisiana. It
is to the last degree improbable—nothing
more than one of those canards by which
the rebel leaders feed the credulity of tbeir
people. ; ; - -

Tielllc"»llly of Sending: letlcr. Out
aide the Post Office*
A case of more than usual importance to
the business community was decided by tbe
United States Court for tbe Western District
of Michigan, at Grand Rapids, on the 27th of
October, 1663, the particulars of which were
as fellows:
Business men on the Use ofonc of the
principal railroads have been In the habit of
sending their business correspondence on the
freight and mail trains, marked R. E. B, or
B.E. 8., In violation of the 159 th section of
the postal laws, which is to tbe following
c fleet:
That all persons whatroever, who shin transmit
by any other means-than the regular mail service,
any lour, packcge, or other mailable matter, ex
cepting lewspapers, pamphlets, mazarines and
periodicals, or-who -shall deliver or deposit, for
the purpose of belrg transported by each nnlatc
fol means, the said mailable matter, shall forfeit
and pay the sum of SSO.
The attention of Special' Agent Van Tech*
ten was called to the’ matter, a quantity cf
letters seized, and the parties sending them
were presented to the grand jury for indict'
meat, and a hill found against three promi
nent business men. In one bill there were
nineteen counts, the ether two one count
each. The parties were arraigned and plead
ed guilty.
This custom Lad become general on the
lire of many much so that the
revenue of the Post Office Department sailer*
ed great loss.
The attention of railroad officers'has been
called to the 157 th and 15Sth sections of the
postal law. Those sections make the railroad
company liable to a fine of-one hundred dol
lars lor each and every letter carried outride
of the mail; except those written by. the offl
. ctrs ol the road or their agents to the officers
of the road or employes, unless l arid let
ters are cndoted*in a Government stamped
envelope cf suitable denomination, and of
the same value as the legal postage would be,
wereit sent by mall. The ; envelope must be
addressed with ink and scaled. The law also
Imposes a fine ol fiftyjdollaiß on the con
ductor of the train, for each and every letter
«ivied in violation of said section.
The arrest ol the parties above mentioned
created considerable excitement among the
bcfeinets men, as many more had been en
grged in the violation, but did not happen to
get caught. It is but fair to state ; that the
panics pleaded Ignorance of the law, and
this article Is for the purpose of calling tie
alter lion of others who have in like manner
violated IhcTavr, Innocently.
Badges of Honorable Distinction.
Ina recert older the Secretary of War di
rects that for each battle in which every offi
cer, soc-comxnlsEloced officer, and private of
the Invalid Corps may have been engaged and
borne an honorable part, a scarlet braid, one*
sixteenth of an inch wide, may be worn on
the right arm, with a space of one-sixth of an
inch .between each braid. This will become*
fen honorable badge, showing the service the
efficer or soldier has performed, and will be
as highly prized by the brave wearers as the
ribbons and crosses so proudly worn by the
veterans of European armies.

A Raw Comet.— A new comet was discov
ered on the 14th ultimo', at Marseilles, by M.-
Tempt! He describes'it,as telescopic, its
position being right ascension 9 degrees, 52
minutes and 44 seconds, and declination 34
degrees, 7 minutes. In the course 'of an hour
it Increased’ a little both in-right! ascension
and declination, solhatitseemstobsmoving
in a northwesterly direction. About the
same time a comet was perceived at Amiens,
but does not seem to be the same, since it is
described as having a tail of an apparent
length ol two metres, while M. Tempers is
telescopic, with a mere rudiment ol a tail.
Tttr Rebel Hah at Charleston;—a Mor
ris Island letter, of Oct. 24, in the New Bed
ford Mercury t states that the monitors had a
little “brush” on the night of tbs 83d. It
seems that {he rebel ram undertook to recon
noitre; she got doim the harbor 1 as far as
Fort Moultrie, when the tittle cheese-boxes
opened on her savagely. The monitors were
walking round the harbor in fine style, evi
dently to get around the ram, to head her off,.
and.capture her; but it is likely the rebels re
collected the fate of the Fin gal, for the ram
very speedily made tracks for the city, well
satisfied, no doubt, that the cheese-boxes are
hard cases. . , - - ;

in the case are these; There were two names

Treasurer, Captain Smith,'who had served with
honor in the army until severely wounded, and
Hr. Tapp&n. The latter received the nomination,
ard the copperheads took up Captain' Smith,and

remainder cf the regular-union ticket was suc
cessful, thereby showing tbeir sympathy for the
stidler whe bad served his country before tbe ene

and endorses all the prominent measures of the

[Correspondence ofwthe N. T. Tribune.]
Cap* Towk. Cap* op Good Hop*,Sept,l9, ’63.
At the date of my last letter, (Ang. 19.) the
whereabouts of the Alabama and her two
prizes was only known to the parties here
who had purchased the prizes and their car*
goes. On that day, however, the Governor
learned that the prizes were at Sildanha Bay,
(a lact which the American Consul had hinted
in Ills letter -to the Govern or, dated the 17th
of August,) and he dispatched her Majesty’s
war steamer Valorous to that place, with his
Erivate Secretary on board,- and a custom.
Ouse officer, to protect the revenue and pre
vent an itliingementof neutrality. Of coarse
the Valorous was one day too fate, as buth
prizes had Itfc that secluded place the day be
fore.

The Georgia still remained in Simon’s Bay,
twenty three miles from here,' and' did not
leave till the 21st of August. Being an iron
vessel, and her bottom very foul; it was in
tended that she should be put upon the slip
dock here (Table Bay) or at Simon’s Bay, for
repairs; but both docks were out of repair,
and the probably went to Mauritius for that
purpose. 1
On the 20tilthe Vanderbilt arrived fiom St.
Helena, having left Rio de Janeiro on the 2d,
proceeded to 'Jrinldad, and from thence to
St. Helena, where she took In 400 tons of coal
—all three were there. Learnlngfrom the pi
lot at Simon’s Bay that the Georgia had sailed
only feiztecn hours before, she started off Im-.
meolalely without coming to anchor. She
proceeded eastward about 100 miles, ’where
. she found a Dutch b&rk dismasted, and being
nearly out of coal she to wedthe’ distressed
vessel to Simons Bay, which they reached on
the 8d Inst. , The Vanderbilt remained there
one week, coaling and repairing machinery,
and departed again on the evening of the Ilth.
On the 12th, she was spoken by an English
vessel to Jhe eastward of this place, having
probably gone in that direction to| catch the
Georgia, or to-find Out from 1 vessels passing
off Agulhas where the Alabama had gone.
On tho 14tb,a email vessel arrived here
frem Angra Fenguina, a small guano island.
on the west coast: but no information could
be obtained from her in relation to the Ala
bamaor her prizes. -The British shipping
master here, Capt. -Holey, who is also apolice
magistrate, resolved to moke the crew tell oil
they knew, and therefore had them brought
before him to take their depositions. They
testified In substance that the Alabama aud
her two prizes went westward to the guano
islands—Angra, Fenguina and Tchiboe; that
both the Sea Bride and Tuscaloosa left their
cargoes there on the island, or transferred
.them to other vessels; that the latter left la
ballast as & privateer, with her four guns on
board, on the SOth of August, and that the
Sea Bride (captured here lu neutral waters),
after discharging her original cargo, loaded
up with guano left for some l part un
known. They also testified that the chief
manager of these arrangements (and probably
the chief purchaser of the prizes and cargoes)
was Thomas Elanstone, of the firm ofR. Gran
ger & Co. of this place, who ate the lessees
of the guano islands from the British Govern
ment, which now pretends to owi the Island
oflchaboe. This Elenstoro was the chief ne
fotlator with Semmes while he was here, as I
appento know; and he has not appeared
here since the Alabama left. *
The evidence taken by Capt. Tlnley was sub
mitted to the Governor, with a view to the
Enlistment of the prize-buyers if they should
appen to return here: but it was kept very
quiet, acd not a word leaked out about the
Alabama or her prizes until the former re
turned io Simcn’s Bay on the 16th. This
place Is eo foil of British Confederates that,
though over a dozen persons*here must have
known where the prizes bed gone, notone're:
vealed it;-snd some of them even preterded
to be confidential with the commander of the
Vanderbilt, and threw out deceptive hints to
mislead him. .
The Alabama, on her return to Simon’s Bay
on the ICtb, reported no further captures.
She is now takhg in coal and getting her
steam “condenser” repaired. She will re
main at that port about eight days. Capt.
Semmes, being now put in fords by the sale
of ore prize aud two cargoes, will give his
menabo'iday, tud some spending money,
which he was too “hard up” to do when he
was here last.
The Tuscaloosa, I have just learned, has
gone east, and Uie Vanderbilt mvy fall in with
her. The Florida has not yet appeared here,
and 1 believe is cruising near the equator. It
Is jo*t possible that the Vanderbilt may re
turn before the Alabama leaves again, but not
probable. Yonrs, &c, Asncus.

observation:
No lees than five attempts at negro insur

month ol July last. As a terror to the slaves,
some were shot, others tang, and seven or
eight were burnt d, one of the latter being a

An Ominous Article—Burnside to he
Attacked. •
. [From the; Richmond Examiner, Oct. 31]
Tor a long time the importance of East
Tennessee to the Confederacy seemed* to be
unappreciated. Not until that country, fell
into possession of theenemy. was its incalcu
lable value realized. Except what was far
lively obtained-from Kentucky, the whole
army supply of pork come from East Tennes
see and the contiguous counties of; adjoining
States. ’ The* product of com In that region
was very heavy, andfexo portion of the Con
federacy equal in extent, afforded as large a
supply cffoiage and winter pasturage. The
occupation of East .Tennessee by our own
armies was not only important in itself, but
it was important also in respect to the con
tiguous country which it protected. A great
lire-of railway was secured, continental in'
Its dimensions and in its value. The salines
and lead mines of Virginia, which produce
all the salt and lead used in the Confederacy,'
were protected so long as East Tennease was
ours. j
But the evacuation qf that region, and its
surrender wl.hout a single battle to the ene
my, has lost us all those advantages. The
railway is broken up, and there can be no
communication between Gen Jones at Bris
tol, and Gen. Bragg at Chickamauga, who ore
Usa than one hundred and fifty miles apart,
except by a circuit of twelve hundred miles,
through Petersburg, the and Au
gusta. The bogs of Ea*t Tennessee,’affordieg
twenty-five minions of pounds of pork, ore
now being slaughtered for theTankec armies.
The vast com crops and forage supplies of
that department, sufficient to winter all.jthe
live stock of the Confederate armies, ate be
ing fed to the fifty thousand horses and mules
belonging to the* forces of Grant. 1 The salt*
and lead works of the Confederacy, and the
numberless caves ol Southwestern Virginia
from which Immense supplies of saltpetre are
obtained for the Ordnance Department, are
now Imminently threatened by the dose pre
sence-of hostile armies. requiring the pre
sence of heavy forces of our own for their
protection. ...
The task imposed by the loss of East Ten
nessee upon Gen; Samuel Jones, commanding
in Southwest Virginia, Is onerous. ■ Between*
the Yankee Generals, Averill la the direction
of Cheat Mountain, and Bumalde threatening
from Knoxville, he has a line of more, than
six hundred miles to guard.•. The task la ren
dered doubly arduous through the thorough
disorganization Of the Kentucky and Tennes
see cavalry, who have been carousing, pilfer
ing and skulking in Southwestern
under the nondiscipline ot the Kentucky
Generals, to whose tender mercies the people
of that country have been turned dver ever
since the war begun.
Though the Kentucky Generals, who were
intrusted with the protection of that impor
tant country, gave it to the Yankees without
a battle, and although Cumberland Gap was
surrez dered without a shot by a Mississippi
Brigadier.of WeetaPoint training,the country,
:we are glad to believe, is not lost. At the
last moment the Government seems to have
awakened to some sense of the Importance of
East Tennessee, not merely as the back door,
in the Yankee phrase, of the Confederacy, bat
as the oely adequate source of snoply for
meat. and as a very important one for grain
avdfomgo. We bt-fimethat in a'fevwesks
m< re the enemy will hare bsen driven out of
East Tennessee. Indeed.it is highly proba
ble th t the work would have teen accom
pllpbed by the present time If th» movements
of our armies bad not been retarded by the
Wfcntol shoes. While our brave troops are
Wai'lig, as late as October, tor "shoes, the
enemy is comumin? ten times the value of
these necessary articles in porn, pork, and
Kirape; but w© have reaeon to believe that
East Tenseeeee will soon be recovered, even
although this should be after all its supplies
are exhausted by the Yankees.
SUssourl a Badlcal State.
[From the St. Louie Democrat, sth Inst.]
. We know not what maj be the result of lut
■Tnetdaj s election in this State, and for any
thine more than present purposes, we do not
much care. The Tere decided victors for the
Radicals in St. Louis, and the heavy votes
they oppesr to have secured in all the more
lojal dhtricU of the State, settle the question
-°f Missouri s political future. In St. LonU
the Radicals have the citadel ol political Dow
er in the State, without which no party in
.Missouri can hope for permanent success. It
ie the centre of inflnence-tho heart "of the
.system politically, aa well as financially
Their lareo majorities In the loyal counties
end particulnrly among the soldiers, establish
the fact that their party preponderates largely
amor e loyal citizens, and mnst sooner or
later absorb all such into its ranks. As Mis
souri grows moie loyal it must’grow more
.radical. The.Rf.dkalparty,therefore.eojoTS
the immense advantage of being upon the aa
ctndlrg wave.
Whether, taking the entire vote cast In this
State on last Tuesday, the Radicil ticket will
prove to have a majority or not, it is yet im
possible to tell, although the returns so far
.received point to that conclusion; bat wheth
er such be the case or net,~we already have a
sufficient knowledge of the vote, given to
know, with absolute certainty, that with a
friendly national Administration, or with one
which would have stood Impartial between
the parlies, the Radicals would have carried
the State by a heavy preuonderance. If the
shameful coalition which was effected bo*
tween the Conservatives or copperheads and
the rebels has trimnphcd/toklog the entire
State over, itsvictoryis owing solely to the
assistance it has received from the national
Administration, through Us chief representa
tive In this State, the commander of the de
partment and the Governor of the State. 1
This aid is but temporary. Nothing is better
fettled by the vote given In Missouri, on
Tuesday lost, than that Missouri will on: year
hence give Us tote to the Radical candidate for the
Iresidcncy, or for that candidate who is adopted
its representative in (he coming contest by the
Radical Union dement, unless indeed' that cia
didate should prove to be -Mr. Lincoln, in

Union, North or South, os more secure for
the Radical Presidential candidate than 'Mis

each candidate, os the son is to risb upon the
day of election. We have not failed materi
allylh suy of onr calculations respecting the

[From tho Richmond Enquirer,-Oct. Slat]
On Saturday last, President Davis reviewed
the troops at Mobile, Alabama. Afterthe pa
rade he retired to the Battle House, where, la
retponte to repeated calls, he appeared on the
balct ny, and delivered a brief address to the
cltiztcs and soldiers. He congratulated the
people upon the fact, which he assured them
be lilt to be the fret, that onr oause is no nr la
& bitter condition than it was aycar ago. Hav
ing just come from the scene of the great bit
tie of Chlckamaoga, it was impossible that he
should sot refer to that, and though it could
not be expected that he should allude to con
templated movements, yet he was happy to
that the brave victors ot that bloody field
stood ready aid anxious to strike the blow
which should Eccnre the complete fruits of
their glorious vlctorv.
He could say more—that he believed that
they would strike that blow, acd thatßose
cians’ unwlcldly legions would be destroyed
or-driven for refuge to the Ohio. The same
spirit animated ourarmles elsewhere, and all
they needed was to be properly seconded by
tbe people at home to send the hordes of
Yankees back to their beloved Boston, orany
other place frjm which the return -might be
more difficult. He saw before him a Texas
regiment, whose thinned ranks reminded him
too painfully o* their situation, cutoff from
the homes to which they should look for
recruits, aid ol their deadly conflicts upon
many a-field where they bad fought as Texans
always fight. He exhorted them to beof good
cheer, ouch deeds as theh’s were never in
vain, and would surely secure to the couutry
the Inestimable prize for which they are con
tending, and themselves honor and renown.
There, too, were Alabamians, who he felt
sure were worthy the name which had been
immortalized on so many battle fields in Vir
ginia, Tennessee and Mississippi. And here
ne referred to the youthful color-bearer at
Cblckamanga, who planted within the enemy’s
barricades his regimental flag, pierced with
eighty-three bullets, and Its staff shattered.
TheFresldeat had the pleasure of promoting
him for his heroic conduct, and such was his
modesty that in presenting his flog to the
President ire appeared quite unconscious of
having performed anything extraordinary, *
A Grand System orSwlndllnr.
f From the “Wheeling Intelligencer, Not, Ist]
A fejv dajß we advertised for the Gov
ernment in our columns the sale of several
tens of old iron at Harper's Ferry—the
wreefis cf the magnificent arsenal that once
existed there. Several of onr iron men went
on to attend th&eale. We are informed by
one of them who he.i returned, and who
bought a considerable amount of the Iron of*
ferca for tale, that on reaching the Ferry he
and his companions were at once approached
by a set oi speculators who had arrived In ad*
vance of them from Washington, Baltimore,
Philadelphia and other places, to see it they
would enter Into a “ring" to cheat the
Government and divide the profits of the
operation. The operation propoeed wos this;
lo form a u ring” of all the buyers on the
ground and appoint certain ones to bid the
won up to a certain price, cay hilf whatr it
was worth. t
They were then to let it go to some one of
their number, and the Government being thus
.disposed or, the “rirg” were to pat the iron
up a second time, and’every purchaser was to
bid bis highest fig ores, the highestiof coarse
gfctlJog A tbe iron. The difference between
what the iron was bought at from!tho Gov
ernment end what It sold tor the second time
to one or more of the members of the “ring',”
*was to bo paid In dividends to osch member
of the “ring.” For instance, if the Iron
had been bought for §50,000 from t the Gov
eiament,.and put up cgaln and struck off to
S?/si£s£' saichM3p » or purchasers, for
SIW,OCO, there would, of course, be $50,000
to divide, the pjicbaiers getting their share
of the dividends along witn the others. This
rascally game our "Wheeling men: wouldn’t,
go into, preferring, as they told these blood
suckers, to give the Government the highest
puce that the iron was worth. And they did
pay .a good price for the iron bought—fall as
much as it was worth, and in doing so set an
example to the unprincipled cormorants
around them that mutt have been refreshing
to their depraved ideas of a business transac
tion. j
,'lheTilUsns actually had the hardihood to
tell the buyers from Wheeling that the game
they proposed was the common onejpractier*!
at 01l sales of the kind, and gave that as one
reason why it should be entered into at the
Ferry. If this Is so, and we have no doubt it
is, the attention of responsible Government
cSlclalp everywhere ought to he directed to
the fact. i

The Navy Department has Jastj issued a

Iron-Clods and Targets.
The Russian Government has lately given
orders for the building of two hundred iron
clad gunboats, on a new model, especially in
tended fer the defence of Cronstrdt. Their
construction has been confined to six differ
ent dockyards. Thirty five are to be built at
the Octu yard, on the right bank of the Neva,
at St^Petersburg; twenty at the New Admi
ralty; forty at the Isle-of near the
mouth of .the Neva; sixty at Cronstadt; t trea
ty five at Abo, andtwenty atßjarnbbrd. Each
boat is to carry only cno gun of very large
calibre, placed on the centre of the deck. Tne
Admiralty some time eince ofitred a prize for
the best method of protecting this gnu, and a
Lieutenant of the Ruction navy has invented
a system which is considered by the Russians
for tnperior to anything that has been tried
in England or America. ,
A new class of gunboats, to be built of Iron
and to bo aimor pl&ted. will shortly be com
commenced in England to'replace the gun
beat fleet at Hosier. In these vessels the
twin screw principle will be applied.
A large target, twelve and a half feet broad
and ten feet high, constructed of eighteen
inch thick teak, faced with four and a half
•inch iron plates, to represent the sides ot the
Warrior, has just been completed at the Wool
wich dockyard in England, and is to be
forwarded to . Shceburyness, for a series of
experiments in the presence of the ordnance
select committee, to test the efficiency of the
COO-pounder Armstrong muzzle-loading gun.
The ta’get has been in handabout six months,
the design having been more tb*n once
changed by order of the Admiralty, and it has
now been fitted upon a large platform com
posed of balks of timber, which will be floated
some distance out at sea upon twenty-four
empty casks. The platform and about two
feel of the target will be submerged tor the
purpose of asccrtaislcg the destructive pow
era-of the monster gun when brought to bear
against that portion of an armor-plated vessel'
under the water line.

We annex the eloquent and polntedaddress
of the Congress to the Dish people at home.
Address of the Centres and Delegates of the Fe
nian Drvtherhood in America, assembled in
Convention in the city of Chicago, to their fel
low-countrymen in Ireland, who share their ’
■ views .as- to the best means of achieving the in
dependence of Ireland,
■ Brotbzbs: We deem It prudent to with
hold for the present from publication in the
newspapers certain Important resolutions,
having special reference to the revolutionary
element in Ireland, which have been submit
ted to this Convention by the Head Centre of
the Fenian Brotherhood in America, and
unanimously adopted. Printed copies of
these resolutions will b* placed before the
different circles of our organization in this
country; and will also be transmitted at the
earliest fitting opportunity to our friends at
home. In the meantime, we do not wish to
separate without addressing to you a few
guarded as we can afford to have
read by all whom it may concern— regarding the
pn sent aspect of our affairs. . .
We are solemnly pledged to labor earnestly
and continuously for the regeneration of our
beloved Ireland. That pledge, with the
blessing of Divine Providence, we shall re
deem; And when the wished for hour shall
have arrived, we shall be prepared with you
to meet the implacable persecutions of onr
race In battle array; to pat an end forever to
the acursed system under which our unhap
py people have suffered such cruel tortures,
or die like men in the attempt And in what
holier cause baa man ever died ? How much
Irish blood has fallen upon the battle-fields
•of the’world? Alas! hewmuch Irish blood
has been shed in the service of onr country’s
oppressor, the plunderer and murderer ot
her people, the fell enemy of her faith?
Over this subject, and others connected with
lr, wehave pondered long and bitterly. But
our resolve is fixed and Irrevocable; the foul
stigma which attaches to on; name must be
wiped out.
We'do not ask, ’ will you be ready ? ■ We
know you are ready. Nine-tenths of the
Irbh people have been at all times ready, in
heart and will, to dispute with armed hind
the Invader’s right to enslave or exterminate
them. But this Is not enough. We must be
14 skilled to do” os well as “ ready to dare.”
We are thoroughly convinced of the utter fu
tility of legal and constitutional agitations,
parliamentary “policies,” sndall afinllw de
lusions. These things have brought more
suffering upon our people than would be
caused by the most protracted and devasta
ting war. The beat of them would bat ex
pose the ardent and the brave to the ven
geance cI local despots; and be it remem- •
bered that such sacrifices beget no'nobleas- '
plratlons. •
No enslaved people ever regained their in
dependence or became formidable to the en
slaver without “illegal” .(In the enslaver’s
sens*-) pre-organization. Poland had Us ille
gal (in the Rossi an sense) organization long
before those glorious “legions ofdespair”
unfurled the tt»«* of Had Italy
no illegal (in the Austrian sense) organization
the sword of McMahon had never flashed in
victory on the field. Of Magenta. Had not
the American colonies of England their train
ed militia, the *' 1 trampled province” could
riot have sprung into a “free and glorious
.republic.” rHungary was pra-organized—but
why multiply Instances? The lesson which
history .teaches to struggling nationalities—
acd illustrates by many a bright and many a
dark example—la that pre-organization is es
sential to success With it, there may be de
feat and glory. Without it .there must be
,defeat and shame. Some politicians seem
to think anything approaching to a military
organization impossible in Ireland. Bat its
possibility and feasibility, when guided by
courage, prudence, devotion aud ability, have
been proved to onr satisfaction; and this fret
is the very foundation of our conviction, that
the .day of on; deliverance is at’hind. We
eaydwr deliverance, for tho privileges of llv
lr-g among a free people, and of sharing the
bleeainga of . free institutions, bat make us
feel the more keenly the sufferings aud degra
daiionof our own old land. But ourhSirta
swell with hope and exultation when we
thinjc cl the living fire that bums within her •
chores, defying the combined efforts ot open
foe and false friend to extinguish it.' No nut
ter how powerful * and devoted her exiled
children might be, we should tremble for the
Issue if there wereno true men left In Ire
land ; no worthy descendants and disciples of
the heroes of *9B. We do not wonder at the
enemy’s persistent endeavors to emasculate
or to banish you. ’
Americans already admit that the non-re
cognition ol the revolted States by England
Is due to the attitude which the Irish people
have assumed both at home and in this Re
public. If the Dish people, at home and
abroad, were united ft a band of brotherhood
lor the salvation of • their conutry, would the
United-Staths-hesitate for an hour to strike a
blow which would be followed by two inevi
, table results—peace In America qnd liberty
In Ireland ? ! ,
A deep responsibility rests upon!Irishmen
in the present generation. The fate of this
country trembles in the balance. Emigration
is doing its exhausting work. Other influen
ces are leagued with the oppressor to quench
the spirit which has triumphed over the dun
geon and the scaffold, and which even famine
could, not kill. Let ns falter now, and Ire
land's doom is sealed; a grand old. nation
grand even in her chains—is blotted from the
map of the world. Buf there shall be no fal
tering, no cowardice. Oar country cries to
us for old, and points to the grave which the
’ foehas dug for her. Armed legions sMI iq
lerpoie between her and that grave.** - *
Here we have so.’diers armed and trained,
(thousands oi them trained in the tented fieM
and amid the smoke'and thunder of battle,)
with able and experienced Generals to lead
them. Let the dries ana towns and parishes
of Ireland have their brigades, regiments,
battalions and companies of partially discip
lined soldiers of liberty silently enrolled.
Above all things let every man be pledged to
obey the commands of his superiors, and
pledged also never to move wilhout such
command, for obedience to command is the
first and most Important requisite of theper
feet soldier- all the rest is secondary. Thus
you will not only be prepared to strike with
effect, but all rash attempts at insurrection
will be prevented. Without such an organi
zation -as we contemplate, partial
uprisings of the people will ! be sure
to occur, leaving no results but the
sacrifice of brave men, and, perhaps, the
ruin of our cause. When we strike, let us
strike home. And are there not strong anna
within the enemy’s own shores to second the
blew ? Circumstances are ft our favor such
as Providence never before vouchsafed to an
enslaved people. -We have but to act os be
seems bravo and reasoning men, and ours
shall be the pride and the glory of lifting our
scnowlrg Eire of the Streams to her place
ameng the nations. Brothers, rely upon us
—we rely upon yob. • .

Tbe French Iron- Clad. In a storm.
[Pails COct. 15) Correspondence of the London
Anny and Navy Gazette.]
It appears that the rolling of the icon

*** that the Norman
die wiU bare to be docked. She Uy like a lo"-
in the trough of the sea, which mile a clean
breach overher. The ooly person who could
remain on deck were the Captain-and the men
at, the helm, who were sheltered in shot
prooa. The crew waa all belo win the water-
compartmdnts, where they were nearly
stifled; In such a precarious situation was
tbm vessel that the Napoleon thought the
only way of saying her woald be to take h°r
in tow. She consequently sent a rope by the
Talisman, and the Talisman broke hep bows
in try mg to get on board the Normandie, not
that in such a sea any rope could have stood.
The Normandie waa quite ungovernable, and
drifted toward the shore, upon which, but lor
a change of current, she mot have ultimately
been thrown Below nearly everything had
broken loose and was following the movement
of the vessel, which all bat completed a clr-,
cle as each sea struck her sluggish aide. The
shot were shaken from their lockers, and
rolled about the lower decks, indicting iojory
bn the men, several of whom hid fractured
lirrbs.'
La Couronne seems to have weathered the
st< rm better than the other frigates, and it Is
said that the Solferlno and Magenta, the two
larger vessels not plated at stem or stern, did
not roll nearly so heavily as their smaller
companions, . _
The Commission must have felt like Falica

The squadron is expected to put to sea
again in a few days for farther trials.

A Discovery In Fort Wagner.
The following is an extract from a private
letter to a gentleman of New York, dated
Fort Wagner, October 19,1863.
.. I.opened one of the unexploded magazines,
and dug out a lot of as “vllllanous com
pounds 1 ’ as Mr. Beauregard ever complained
ot. First was a little box containing sul
phuric acid, iu tubes about six Inches In
length by one third of an inch in dUmeter,
ainlby it a box marked “fire bottles” on
the Inside of the cover of which was a card of
“ directions,* 1 Taking one of the bottles,
and preparing it according to the direction,!
pitched it at so inching hard.
The experiment was perfectly successful.
The bottle hurst, the contents were ignited,
and burnt for ten minutes. The bottles evi
dently contained camphene, gunpowder and
chlorate of potash, To day I found another
of their •* fire bugs',” which consists of a tin
can holding about a quart, in the centre of
which is suspended a smaller can* The Inner
can contains powder, and the space around
it is filled with cotton and turpentine. A
time fuse communicates from the outside
with the Inner can. Being a little suspicious
of the face, I first emptied the fluid by means
of a small opening at the top, and com
menced my investigations by “regular ap
proaches” from the bottom. Catting through
this 1 seized the “little Joker” and twisted
off its. neck. Finding that rhe fuse, Zefc plen
ty of margin for dodging, I brought onsout
and got up some fireworks at rebel expense.
It exploded, throwing the cotton fjur or five
yards around, and coverin'? the ground with
fire. I don't see how Mr. Buregard can com
plain of (> Greek fire ” alter this.

[From the Schuyler Citizen, 4th.]
Mr* Colleoenre of this vincityhas just left
in this cffle a sample of sugar lie obtained
from his Otaheiton cane this season. It is a
truly fine article. Mr. Colleasnre confirms
the statement made by Mr. Price, namely:
that this cane is everyway superior to any
other he is acquainted with. It stands bet*
ter on the ground. Is not easy thrown down
hy-the wind; yields folly one-third more
eyrop to a given quantity of juice, and is an
infinitely superior article. Bat heat of all, it
readily granulates. We are greatly gratified
indeed, to hear from persons in a'l directions
around, both at home and abroad, who have
planted this cane and not lost It by drouth
or frost, that it even exceeds their expecta
tions. In quantity,' quality, granulating
properties, «£e., it (quite satisfactorily fills
the foil measure of ail the high praise we
have ever given it
