FRIDAY, NOVEMBER IS, 1353.
IBEJtEWS.
' Washington society was thriUed by an
■event of note yesterday—the nuptials of
Hx-Govemor Sprague, of Rhode Wand,
pud the daughter of Secretary Chase.
We give elsewhere the amended list of
exemptions from the draft on the score of
physical ailment It does not, like its pre
decessor, include all the “His that
fresh is heir to," bat only such as
will, form . . insurmountable obsta
cles to their ' possessor’s entering
the armies of the Union. This list is not
like the other, a help to shirks and sneaks
to escape the draft, hat is simply a safe,
guard for the Government, to save it from
the expense of enrolling incompetent men.
It is greatly impro ved in this respect.
The more we get of election returns the
Ixiter they look. The following am the
majorities for the Union ticket in the
eighteen loyal States that have held elec
tions during the past seven months:
Maine 10,000 Wert Virginia....ls.oCo

THE SXTCiTION.
On the map of the United States draw
A line from Chattanooga, in Tennessee, to
Fredericksburg, in Virginia, taking Knox
wille cn route. This is the line occupied
by the army of the Union, gradually and
Strongly pressing in upon the veiy heart
of the Confederacy. Of this grand army,
Gen. Thomas has the right, Burnside the
centre, and He&dc the left The present
aspect of the campaign justifies this pecu
liar statement
The rebels have been feeling for a weak
point in the line and have evidently found
it with Burnside, since the enemy’s force
in his front has strengthened and two mod
erately severe blows hare been dealt him.
Sul this movement to the centre has been
clone by the rebels at the expense of pow
er in Virginia, and it has become Gen.
sfcade*s hour to attend to that He
does not propose to set down . on
She Potomac a spectator of a
flght elsewhere, and his time for the reb
els to come back and fight him.
Late movements in Virginia have been
precipitated by the positive information
•which had reached ‘Washington recently
that Gen. Lee’s army was reduced to less
lhan 40,000 men, on account of the large
detachments which had been sent by him
lo operate against Gen. Burnside in East
Tennessee.
Preliminary to Lee’s movement west
ward came his fdnt northward to destroy
the railroads and stave off, if posable, any
Advance on our part The game did not
•win. Gen. Meade is now at Fredericks
burg, within sixty mßes of the rebel capi
tal This skillful offensive movement of
our left will speedily tril • for the relief of
Ihe centre, for there will be a hurried re
call of rebel troops baric from East Tea-
jiessee to save their capital
; Meanwhile Gen. Grant on the right of
Uus line is not idle. Hooker and Sher
man are sweeping out around Bragg's left
flank. Any day may bring on a battle,
and indeed three or four great engage
ments may take place dmultaneouriy on
Ibis great extended line of battle. On
ybiß gage of battle the rebellion has laid its
Jast*stakc. If defeated in these fields the
great conspiracy will be at an end, to be
beard of no more save in sullen and sulky
fragments.
IHE LAKE EBKE PLOT.
The timid little mmor that came into
Dur dispatch column of yesterday morn
ing, as if ashamed of its Philadelphia
origin, (not a very good start in life for a
piece of news,) has bloomed into a lull
blown sensation, and now comes backed
■with high official names. The Governor
of Ohio, the Governor General of Canada,
Ihe Secretary ofWar, the Mayor of Buffalo,
are all variously mentioned as sharing
an bringing this plot to light, being no less
Shank scheme of rebels to fit out armed
Vessels in Canada, and make a grand
wvater raid on exposed points on Lake
Erie, having as their primal object the
release of the rebel officers prisoners
on the island off Sandusky. The
plot has been so well aired that there is
Bitie danger that it will be again heard
jom. The United States steamer Michi
dgon Is cruising off the island, and other
arrangements to improvise an armed force
afloat have been made, so the probability
Is that Buffalo and her Lake Erie sisters
are sale.
It Is almost certain, however, that this
Canada plot is but a fragmentary portion
of that other rebel plot recently discov
ered in Ohio, while it is even more probable
that both, as well as Buckner's futile raid,
are floating debris of the great wreck of
Vallandigham’s infamous gang. This now
disjointed machine was made ready to
send the fire-brands of war through
Iho North had the home vote of
Ohio sustained that traitor. For that re
sult these Interlocking plots were framed.
With that result they would have been
dangerous, but we deem that now there
WQI be few with hardihood enough to put
Xhelr heads in the lion’s mouth. Ohio, in
sulted and indignant at the imputations
cast upon her fealty, would make warm
2nd short work with any rebel gang Inva
-ding her borders, come they from Canada
or across the Ohio River. Nevertheless’
jt arill be well to watch these men who
mean mischief, and arc only seeking for
exposed points.
BmBOAO JICCOSSODITIOX.
Chicago, with its ‘‘network of railways/
lias excited the wonder end admiration of
the world; and has formed a prolific sub
ject for writers of all descriptions, and for
all imaginable purposes. Yet for months
past, some of the most Important branches
or our commercial industry hare been sub
. Jected to inconveniences, from the want of
more railway accommodation, that would
fte absolutely incredible to those whose
knowledge of our resources is confined to
2he productions above alluded to. Sqch is
She inevitable delay and uncertainty at
tending the receipt and transmission of
merchandise, that important orders are
• daily withheld, or altogether abandoned,
in many, of our most important districts of
country, thereby inflicting no small loss
to the dealer, but materially crippling the
trade of this city.
It Is a well ascertained fact that the
lumber trade of this city has sustained
more injury from thU cause than from all
others combined. Independent of a large
number of orders which have* been alto
gether cancelled, a large quantity of lum
3>ex is still In tins city, which has been
'pud for, weeks since, and is still delayed
ibrwant of cars to transport it to its desti
aation. Until within a few days, goods
have been delayed from three to six weeks
■on their way here from New York, that
under ordinary, circumstances conld be
iransmitted in six or seven days.
Taking into account the fluctuating con-
dition ot our money market, the disturb
ing influences that are at work in our im
■ - port and export trades, and aU other con
tingencies, regular and irregular, we yen-

lure to n-HTt that the uncertainty and
delay now alluded to baa done and ia
doing more to perplex our shrewdest and
beet men of business than all else besides.
The importance of this subject, especially
at a season of the year when in a few
weeks navigation win have closed, can.
scarcely be over estimated. The difficulty,
Whether from want of cars, or capital,
however gigantic its proportions, must be
met, and the sooner the better for the

. Wo have a word with the colored men
of Chicago. After months of .exertion on
the part of your friends, leave has been
granted to raise a regiment of colored
volunteers in the State ot Illinois. Every
patriotic principle should induce vou at
once to fill up the rrnks, and make room
for the second regiment It is true that
the pay Is not all it should be; but as soon
as Congress meets there can be no doubt
whatever that all this will be changed.
Show your patriotism and your manhood,
and your country will honor jour devo
tion to freedom* An opportunity ia now
open to you to shame into eternal silence
the vile calumniators of your race. We
hope you will do it by filling up a com
pany in the shortest time possible. It
woifid be a proud day for you and all
your friends to see you parade our streets'
beneath the folds of the glorious old flag
ofthetTnion.
’Within the last few days, the course of
some of our leading colored men has sur
prised ns. As the paid recruiting agents
of other States, they are doing all they
can to defeat the patriotic efforts of those
who are interested in raising a regiment
of colored troops for Illinois. In this mat
ter, unwittingly we are sure, they arc play
ing directly into the hands of the infamous
copperheads who have so long grossly
maligned and oppressed them. Some of
these opposers are men of property who
but a few months ago, in mortal fear of a
copperhead mob, were ready to flee the
city, and abandon their homes to the
tender merries of the infernal crew who
ore always ready to hunt a black man from
the face of the earth. We submit that all
apathy, not to say opposition of any col
ored man to the raising of this regiment,
is the worst policy possible—it is treason
to the best interests of the colored race.- If
the regiment fails now, those who have so
earnestly paid for the manhood of the col
ored people, will be forced to hide their,
heads lor shame. Colored men of Chi
cago, this must not be. In a single week
you can fill up a company if yon try. The
recruiting office is at 203 South Clark, and
'we hope you will at once fill up the first
company, and be ready for the second.
Show that you love liberty, and are will
ing to fight tor it.

St. Louis, Nov. 12.—Nothing special of in

The Governor’s Message relates almost en

luduce immigration to the State from all
countries. Bespectirg the relations of the
State to the Federal Government, it says:—
‘ rien*ts now no military organization with
in our borders hostile to the Government of
the United States, and that there is every in*
clcatiocthat the former feeling of hostility
has settled down Into a quiet acquiescence in
tbe supremacy of that Government, and an

THE LAKE ERIE PLOT.
Rumored Rebel Scheme to in

Action ( f Lord Lyons
and the Gov. Gen.
of Canada.
A DISPATCH FROM THE SECRETARY
OE WAR.
Buffalo, Sandusky, and other Lake
Cities Threatened,
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribane*]
Washikotok, Hot. 12,1855.
, For two or three Jdays Gov. Tod has been
telegraphing here that there was a plot on
foot among rebel sympathizers in Canada to
liberate the 1,200 rebel officers confined on
Johnson’s Island, off Sandusky, and then to
commit such depredations as will be possible
before making their escape to the friendly
security of our neutral neighbors.
Government hesitated at first to credit the
extraordinary statement, bat Lord Lyons to*
day received a dispatch from the Governor
General of Canada, warning: him of the exis
tence of this plot, idling him the plan was
to seise some steamer on the lake, give It
such offensive power as they could, sail im
mediately for the harbor of Buffalo, and born
that city.
• Lord Lyons at once communicated the dis
patch to Secretary Seward, and no small com
motion was excited at the moment.
The United States steamer Michigan, now
Ijirg near Johnson’s Island, U. supposed to
be amply sufficient to prevent any remaining
danger from .the discovered plot.
Bcttalo, Not. 12.—The following dispatch
was received by Mayor Fargo this morning:
Washington, Nov. 11—Midnight. —To the
Matjor of Buffalo: The British Minister,
Lord Lyons, has to-night officially notified
the Government that from telegraphic Infor
mation received from the Governor Genera]'
of Canada, there is reason to believe that
there is a plot on foot by persons hostile to
the United States, who have found an asylum
in to invade the United States and
destroy the city of Buffalo, and that they pro
pose to take possession of some steamboats
on Lake Erie, surprise Johnson’s Island, and
set free the prisoners of war confined there,
and proceed with them to Buffalo.
This Government will employ all the means
In 1U power to suppress any hostile attack
from Canada, bat as other towns and cities
on the shores of the kikes are exposed to the
same dangers, it Is deemed proper to comma
nlcate this information to yoa in order that
any precautions which the circumstances of
the case permit, maybe taken. The Govern
or General suggested that steamboats or
other vessels glviog cause or suspicion by the
number or character of the persons on board,
thall be arrested.
Yon wIU please acknowledge the receipt of
this telegram, and communicate to this De
partment any information yon may now or
hereafter have on this subject.
Signed, Edwin M. Stanton,
Secretary of War. .
[Special Biepatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Cincinnati, Nor. IS, 1863.
No advices have been received at the head
quarters of General Cox, commanding Dls
t'ict of Ohio, in this city, which would war
rant the belief that reports telegraphed from
Cleveland and Bnfiolo in regard to a move
ment among rebel sympathizers and refugees
in Canada, to release prisoners on Johnson’s
leland, Lake Erie, are true.
A conspiracy may have existed, but it
wobld be almost Impossible for the plot to
be carried out, owing to the presence of the
steamer Michigan in the vicinity of Jobnaon’s
Island, In view of these rumors. However,
Government has taken Gapt. # Harsh’s two
steamers, which run from Sandusky to Kel
ly’s Island, and manned them with troops
from Camp Cleveland, and the; are now
cruising in the vicicity of Sandusky Bay.
It is thought here that the plot may be in
some way connected with the conspiracy to
release prisoners from Comp Chase, Camp
Douglas, and the barracks in Cincinnati,
which was discovered last week.
Advices are expected at headquarters as to
the truth of the report.
Cincinnati, Nov, 12.—Considerable excite
ment prevails in the northern part of this
State, In consequence of on anticipated at
tack upon Johnson’s Bland by an expedition
of armed steamers fitted out for that purpose
in Canada. The facts so fir as ascertained,
are as follows:
Government officers have received informa-
tion, upon what is considered unquestionably
reliable authority, that two or more armed
vessels have been fitted out by rebels and reb
el allies in Canada to attack Johnson’s Island
in Sandusky Bay, and release the rebel pris
oners confined there, numbering some four
thousand. This accomplished, they Intend,
with the aid of the released prisoners, to at
tack and destroy, if possible, Sandusky, Buf
falo, and other prominent cities on the shores
of Lake Erie.
Active and energetic precautionary meas
ures have been taken by the Government to
render Johnson’s Island secure against at
tack, should one be made. Troops and bat-
terieshavo been ordered there from several
points in this Stale, yesterday and to day.
Washington, Nov. 13.—There are over
3,000 rebel officers on Johnson’s Island.
Eighty officers recently captured by Meade,
are on the way there. Several days ago there
were suspicious indications that the rebels
on the. Island contemplated an effort to es
cape, but the authorities here had the requi
site precautions taken, including the order
ing cf a gunboat there. Therefore the pris
oners could not .leave the island, If they at
tempted It. Whatever apprehensions existed
are now quieted.
[From the Cleveland Herald, 11th.]
We have noticed In another place the de
parture of five hundred troops from Gamp
Cleveland for the purpose of meeting antici
pated trouble amongtherebel prisoners on
Johnson's Island. The arrival of ths San
dusky train puts us in possession ol addi
tional information in relation to the causes
which led to this movement.
There are now about four thousand rebels
on the Island, guarded by less than four hun
dred United States troops. Among the reb
els ere the notorious Jeff. Thompson audlla
ior General Trimble, both celebrated for their
care-devil exploits and adventurous schemes.
Since they have been placed among the pris
oners the guards have had considerable
trouble in keeping order, and have to bs con
tinually on the alert to detect and fustrate
plans of escape. The attempt to “dig out”
a few days since we noticed at the time.
For some d&jsjt has been evident that some
mischief was brewing among the rebels, and
close watch was kept on their movements.
Ycstersday (luMday) information was re
ceived bj Major Pierson, in command of the
liland, that a fully-armed and equipped gun
boat had left the Canadian shore for the
Islands' with the intention of assisting in the
release of the prisoners. It is reported
that other information led to the belief
that simultaneously with the appearance of
the pirate, a general attack was to bo made
by the rebel prisoners, the guards were to be
overpowered, the arsenal seized, Sandusky to
be pillaged and burned, and the rebels either
to escape to Canada, or to strike into the in
terior of the State with other designs.
Bow far these reports are reliable we do
not % now, but they were deemed of sufficient
importance by Major Pierson to communi
cate with Governor Tod, and to place the Is
land in the beet state of defense In his power.
The U 8. gunboat Michigan took up posi
tion In front of the prison, and got ready to
receive the piratical craft, if such should
make* its appearance, and the guards were
pot in fighting trim.
Oa receiving the news Governor Tod stop-

the affair we have not yet learned.

New Yobk, Nov. 13 —A Washington cor
respondent says a privatenotc from the front
states that It was believed the rebels were in
considerable Jorco south of Culpepper, this
tide of theßapldam It now looks as if Lee
was maneuvering 'for some position
for battle which the writer did not
ngard at all improbable unless the enemy
suddenly crossed the Ripldan with all bis
force, thus giving confirmation of the pre
vious belief ot his weakness.
It will bb recollected that In Lee’s official
report of Ms former advance ho selected the
ground he how holds to attack Meade. He
therefore has opportunity to make good hi 5
word.
Oar army cannot advance rapidly owing to

eeeifa change in the situation develops* a
battle.
Gen. Meade is very active in disposing of
Lis corps to strategical points.
New Tons, Nov. 13.—A Washington dis
patch rays; A contraband who left Gordons
ville this morning says tbe whole rebel army
is encamped on u>e railroad shove Gordons
vllle, having rccroeeed the Rapldan on Satur
day and Sunday. They were maklngarrAnge
icentsforwinterquarterc, bat lor the lost
day or two quite a panic was created by sto
ries of Meade advancing upon them in im
mense force.
They have a large amount of stores at Gor
douEVille and at Madison. He says a large
cavalry force was sent westward to attack
Bnrrtlde before Lee made his movement
northward in October. Small bands ol armed
guerillas infest tbe whole country north of
the Rapidan, hut our cavalry fail to find any
large body of rebels.
New Tors, Nov. 12.—The New York
Tima' Washington special says:*
It is positively ascertained that the whole
rebel infantry force crossed tbe Rapidan on
Sunday last. The only forces left this aide
are recormoitcring bands of Stuart’s cavalry,
covering tbe rebel front on the south bank of
the Rapidan, which they are fortifying with
care. It may ha the intention of the rebels
to rendezvous this winter between tbe Rap
pahannock and Rapldon. This is established
by the fact that from Brandy Station to the
Rapidan log huts, capable of accommodating
50,000 men, have been erected.
Onr advance of Saturday effected oneof its
objects in the preservation of twenty-four
miles of road and telegraph between the Rap
pahannock and Rapidan. Both are in perfect
working order. The railroad bridge across
the Rappahannock will be done next Mon
day.
Lee’s army at Gordonsvflle, exclusive of
cavalry, does not much exceed 30,000 men.
Oor cavalry in force is already far south of
the Rapidan, reconnoitering tbe enemy’s po
sition.
Two divisions of cavalry from Lee’s army
have recently been sent to East Tennessee.
Guerillas swarm about our camps. Togo
beyond our pickets is death, as we dally loss
officers, men and mules. Within a month
about seventv wagons, five hundred mules
ard one hundred soldiers, commissioned offi
cers and enlisted men, have been captured.
The forces sent to operate against Burnside
in East Tennessee have been recalled, and
will form a Junction with tbe main army at
Charlottesville or Gordonsville. This will
depend entirely upon the rapidity of Meade’s
movements.
A dispatch from the Army of the Potomac
to the Herald, Nov. 11, says:
I understand that Gen. Meade, having driven
tbe enemy to the south side oi the Rapidan,
has accomplished his mission, but he will be
ready to move still farther as soon as the
railroad will make his base of supplies within
reaching distance. Perfect quiet reigns
throughout the camps, except a wail for sut
lers’ stores and more blankets.
A ridiculous rumor was in circulation to
day that 5,000 rebel soldiers of Lee’s army had
voluntarily come into our lines and laid down
their arms and given themselves up. The
military authorities pronounce It to be utter
ly without foundation.
To day a number of Paymasters started for
the front to payoff troops. It is expected
that the army of the Potomac will be all paid
off within a few days.
The N>w York TW&tmeVWashington special
says: Meade’s headquarters are now a mile
and a ball northeast of Brandy Station. John
M. Botts is near there.
New Yoke, Not* 12,—-A special to the Ibti,
dated ■Wrslilrigton 12th, says there is bat lit*
tie important news to day. Thereportis that
the rebels are menaced by Meade’s advance,
and bare retreated to Gordonsvilie, and that
Lee Is in the Southwest.

worth and Waukesha counties takes place
to-morrow. This completes the draft of the
First Congressional District. The entire ab
sence of riotous proceedings throughout this

to ell law-abiding citizens; nevertheless, it is
probable that this state of things is in a great
measure due to the ample preparations which
have been made by the authorities to enforce
the law at all hazards. -

Mr, Rnblee, editor of the Slate Journal, was
attacked on the street to-night by Mr. Wake
ly, the-recent copperhead candidate for At
torney General, on account of a paragraph in
the Journal isst night criticising Wakely’s
course in the late canvass, claiming that he
was one of the first to lend himself to the
dirty ard bastardly work of attempting to
corrupt and demoralize the loyalty and pa
triotism of the people* and that ao one had
taken a. more ultra copperhead stand or more
deliberate stand in violation of his own sense
ot the duties and decencies of an American
citizen in order to get office.
Mr. ‘Wakely attempted to whip Mr. Rnblee
in the stiect, but finding his blows parried,
resorted to an outpouring of abusive words,
in the midst of which Mr. Rubles walked
off, leaving the detested candidate to waste
his breath on the empty air.

3. Insanity. This includes well-established
recent insanity, with liability to a recur
rence.

Card fromtlie Committee
The original draft of the Presidents Euian
cipation Proclamation remains in the hands
of the undersigned, the committee to whom
iis sale was ininutcd by the managers of the
Northwestern Fair for the benefit ot the San
itary Commission. There are two objects to
be secured by the realization upon this docu
ment. Confessedly the first In matter of pre
ference would he to locate this great histori
cal paper with some society In whose collec
tion it would fitly be surrounded by the gath
ered records ofthe present, period, to grow
each year more priceless as the war ior the
Union, having accomplished its purpose, ra
ce dee into the past. A>
But even such preference of location of the
document must yield' to another considers
oration, made more sacredhy circumstances
that control the committee. The document
is the property of the Sanitary Commission.
Its sale Is made in hehall of - the wounded and
sick of the noble army of the Union. The
committee, consistent with duties so Imposed,
can only consult the one consideration, and
dispose of the Proclamation on the highest
i ffer received for it.
Two tbcu'and dollars by a gentleman la
Maine is the highest sum yet named, exceed
ji g by several hundred dollars the highest of
the several bids by geatlemea of this
city. The committee desire to acquaint the
public with this fact, and leave It for Vue
pride of our Chicago citizens to say if for
xhifl sum this priceless historic doc ament
tball he allowed to pass into other and distant
hands. Extravagant rumors have prevailed
to the injury of the sale desired* The abave
is the fall statement of offers yet received.
Another statement has been made, perhaps,
even more to the retarding of the sale. It Is
enough to assure the public that no photo
graphic or other fac simile copies have been
made or will be allowed. ItwlU pats to the
purchaser without any such haring been
made.
With these statements we appeal to the pub
lic in behalf of the sacred cause we thus rep
resent, preferring to hold the matter open a
short time longer, confident that it may safe
ly be left to the local prideof ourcitizeusand
their patriotic appreciation of the document,
for such result as shall every way best answer
the end desired.
