TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17,1863. ranrv HAKES. The copperhead press have exhausted the whole vocabulary of party names to find one that would injure the great Re publican Union organization, but thus far in vain. Holding last to principle, and steadily pursuing high and noble aims, It has defied the shafts of calumny, and the deiisicnof nickname. Bnt ills amusing to observe the industry of the copperheads to find and fasten upon it some cognomen that may prove odious. First, Slack Re publican was fried for a long time with out paying expenses. “Negro worship pers” was substituted, but this was soon dropped, it bring shown that the copper heads themselves worshipped negroes an hundred fold more than did the Republi cans. The latter wanted them let alone, and if employed by the whites, to be paid for their labor. There was manifestly no negro worship in this. But the “ Demo crats” would not let them alone, but mo nopolized them wholly, and stuck to them closer than a brother; called them ft ” divine ' institution,” and went into the amalgamation business so extensively, that at length it became hard to find a pure blooded African. So that name bad to be dropped from the very absur dity of applying it to the “ let them alone” Republicans. The copperheads were then obliged to fall back on tbeir old scare-crew, of “ abo litionist,” which they stuck up on every hedge and highway. Bnt the slave-mon ger’s rebellion soon robbed it of all its frightful horrors. Thousands ofDemocratic as well as tens of thousands of Republican soldiers, after being shot at by the secesh bushwhackers while standing guard over the property of rebels, wrote home: “ Cull me an abolitionist hero titer. No “ other name expresses my feelings.” The whole snny, except a few copperhead offi cers, nowEing“Johnßrown’ssoul is march ing on,” and fed insulted if called by any less radical name than abolitionists. They are resolved to “ abolish’ ’treason, traitors, and slavery, and the copperhead party when they come home. The term “ abolitionist” as a name of reproach, and as an odious party nickname, is therefore “played out.” At the late election in Illinois, the copperheads called the Union men “abolitionists” every where, but the State notwithstanding gave upwards of 85,000 “ abolition majority on the home tote. So that name as a partisan .slang word, is used up, there being no more terror in it to frighten the most timid soul. A new name has therefore been hatched, but Its duration will be short lived. The word is Jacobin. The Union men are to be called “Jacobins”—the name given to the French revolutionary party which overthrew the rotten Bourbon dynasty, madfc France a Republic; confis cated the estates of the titled aristocracy, and the corrupt dergy, and parcelled them out into freeholds among the French far mers ; abolished primogeniture and entail, whereby the eldest son got all the pro-, perty, and the rest were turned out beg gars; reformed the laws so that a poor man could get justice in the courts; estab lished free schools for the children of the masses, and introduced many other highly useful reforms that have lasted to the pre sent day. The French people were not as well prepared for free self-government as the Americans, whose Constitution and in- slilMioM they took for their model. They had not sprung from the staid and sober .Puritan stock; they had not been trained In the school of persecution, self reliance and hardship in the wilderness, for a century before their revolution; they were not a reading, reflecting, devout people, as were our American ancestors. And as an inevitable consequence, they were unable to found a solid, stable gov ernment, no matter how perfect was the model from which they copied. The Jacobin dubs set but with the purest and most patriotic intentions to rear a beautiful Democratic government. Soon, however, they became rent by internal feuds. Base demagogues got control of and precipitated the party into bloody excesses, and pervert ed it from its original purposes, and Anally brought their own heads to the block for their crimes. But what has all that to do with present affairs? How con the men who are struggling to preserve the old Constitution and Union, founded by "Wash ington, Jefferson, Franklin and their com peers, from destruction at the hands of traitors and rebels, be called Jacobins? 02 course, those who flippantly apply the tenn must be willing to accept the name ot Bourbons, against whom the Jacobins intended, and whom they completely overdrew and destroyed. If we are to borrow i**ty names from the French rev olution, and Uu, Unionists are to be called Jacobins, their must don ths vastly more Jisreputa., cognomen of Bourbons, which is orse even than Copperhead. But the application of the name Jacob*. to the Republican party, is not new. The Federalists tried it in Jefferson’s and Mad ison’s time. They called Jefferson and Madison Jacobins, and tried hard to fasten upon the old Democratic Republican party, founded by Jefferson, the name of Jaco bins, but they failed miserably in the &t --tempt, got cursed by the patriotic people as a pack of Bourbons, yvhp. forgot. nothing, And learned nothing; who opposed pro. - gress and reform, the rights of labor, and the elevation of the masses, and whose heads were filled with aristocratic notions, and whose hearts pined for feudal forms and corruptions, precisely as do the cop- perhead party, North and South, of the present day. The present war was com menced by the Southern Bourbons, in the interests of aristocracy, and for the degra dation of the poor and laboring classes. Secessionists and. their Northern sympa thizers will find they are handling two edged swords, when they go hack to the French revolution for party names. Their safer course is to stick to the names now Sn use. Unionist and copperhead cannot be bettered; they are descriptive and ap propriate. Let them alone. A KEfiBED BEFOBIL We presume that no one at all familiar •with the workings of the laws and regula tions of the Treasury Department, affect ing criminal intercourse with the insurrec tionary districts, and the collection of di rect taxes in the same districts, will deny that the most stringent legislation is neces sary to prevent the agents of the Govern ment from gaining the whole world and losing their own souls in the exercise of their lespeclive offices. We have no derive to cheat the devil in the premises, but we protest against any system which permits a person, appointed to sell abandoned plantations hi South Carolina or Florida for the benefit of the Government, to buy those plantations himself, at his own price, or which enables a. person, appointed to prevent others from trading in cotton, to trade in cotton ad libitum himself. When the Treasury Department was established, so careful were the framers of the Govern ment of the honor of their public servants, that they enacted: concerned or InteieMtd in tte bacl ttadeotTOmmetcn.ot oWnorn. wb o i e or in part, or ooy tea veeaeel* i...- chare, by hlmeilr or another 'in* lor bto aiy public lands or oOier puUieftmSrti or be concerned in tlie purchase or disposal o7*ni public securities of any St-.u?, or or tbTuniSS lilaUs; or take or apply to bis own use any in etnrnient, or join for tecotUtlcg or aiy business in the said Department, other wbat shall be allowed by law.

We presume that it was merely by oversight that the acts of the S7th Congress for the collec tion of taxes in insurrectionary districts, and the collection of abandoned property in the same, did not extend the whole some provisions of the act of 1780 to the agents who should be appointed under them. It is notorious that the commis sioners of taxes for Florida have sold vast tracts of land to themselves for a song. It is true that the sales have been set aside, but we have not heard that the guilty par ties have been removed from office. One of the first acts of Congress at the approaching session, should be to provide adequate penalties for this class of offen ses, and if a section should be added to prevent any officer of the Government, legislative or executive, from using infor mation, acquired by virtue of his office,' lor purposes of speculation in stocks, or gold, or whisky, or other property, it would he so much the better. Every dol lar gained by a dishonest official in tins way, comes out of the pocket of an honest citizen. We do not believe that there has been any considerable amount of stock gambling by this class of persons, but we know that there has been some ;~we know ■ also that the temptation is great, and that human nature is frail. No person can op pose the enactment of such laws unless be is actually engaged in swindling the Gov ernment or the people, or hopes to be so engaged hereafter. THE WATER QUESTION. ' Has it never occurred to the Common Council &nd the Board of Public Works that the execution of any efficient plan for frequent clearing out of the river would obviate the necessity of removing or otherwise disturbing the Water Works? The impurities in the river, if the stream were every day flushed out, would .cease to he cognizable to the senses, or measur able by chemical tests. The accumulation of sewage, blood, slops, &c., due to the prevalence of northeast winds, which pre vent the outflow of the water in the crooked and sluggish bayou, is what does the mischief; and if it is gotten rid of by daily flushing, the amount of offensive matter carried to the pumps would be in appreciable, and public complaint of bad water would cease. We see what combi nation of causes now produce obnoxious effects: A few days* wind from the Northward-heaps the water up at the up per end of the lake, and, outflow from the river being prevented, the offensive mat ter therein gets to be almost intolerable within the city, but the water from the hydrants is comparatively pure. The wind changes to the South, the direction of the wares is to the North, tbc water of the river flows out and is carried up to the pumps, holding a great quantity of blood and sewage* in solution. This soap—it deserves the name!—is forced into the res ervoirs ; and for a week, or until the wind changes again, anathemas of the water, the Board of Public Works and the Common Council, are the rule. This is a succession of facts that all of our readers must have ob served. The remedy is, as we suggest, in the adoption of some plan which will keep up a current in the river and a constant discharge of the water into the lake. This seems to ns so plain and self-evi dent that we can have but little regard for that wisdom which recommends the under taking of a work of great enormous prospective cost and doubtful utility when done, before it is proved that any 'such is a necessity. It is plain that the river must be cleared often, or that the the city will, as the alternative, be depop ulated. Why not provide for*the improve ment of the river first, and then see if new water works are still demanded ? A WELCOME ORDER. A great good has been accomplished. Our readers will recollect that the Tai bcxe, some time since, roundly and em phatically denounced the practice of kid napping enfranchised men in Missouri, and sending them through Illinois, as slaves, to Kentucky and a Southern mar ket. We pointed out how unjust this was to the blacks; how it strengthened the hands of the opponents of emancipation in our sister State, by furnishing them a pecuniary motive to resist the advance of freedom; how it impoverished Missouri by robbing her of needed laborers; and bow it directly and powerfully aided the (mho ly cause, by giving it new, though unwil ling adherents. The article in which we x dealt with the iniquities practised by the consent of the dominant power in Missou ri, was forced upon the attention of supe rior authority in Washington; and we are glad to say that its facts and reasoning had the desired effect The practice, of run ning men of color out of Missouri, by mil itary passes, has been stopped by a general order that Schofield was directed to issue. And now if our State authorities do their duty, and see to it that no negro is permit ted to travel through Illinois, as a slave, even the efforts of the kidnappers will be defeated; and while Missouri preserves "**er labor, the South and the rebellion will lost* *Leir expected help. The order of which >te speak is imperative. Traffic in negroes, and the making Up of coffle-gangs by military connivance is stopped. The President deserves the flmnifa 0 t every true man for the promptness with which he has struck at th* wn xcc complained; and now would he but follow up this action by cutting off the official heads of the commanders who have been consenting parties to this n'efarious traffic, he would do wdl again. We com mend him to the task, with the assurance that he ought to begin with the command er of the Department, Schofield himself! A Peace Proposition, There Is a paper in New Orleans—tic True Ddta— called conservative. It represents the copperheads as they are in that city, and goes as far in expreasirg their views as the military authorities will allow. Id ou article which ap peared on the 25th of October, the conserva tive editor mentions that he'has heard of peace propositions likely to be adopted. They are, first: A suspension of arms for four months. Second, the suspension of negro en listments and their immediate return to their masters, of all negroes not actually enlisted. Third, the conuXidaiion of Vie national and rtbil debit. Fourth, the adoption of land and income taxes to pay the debts. Andatlength, the payment of slave owners, in Government bonds, for aU losses (f Slate property, and also, the payment of damages for all southern property injured by military operations, ~ On these terms the Delta thicks the difficulties could be arranged acd the. Union restored. We should be glad to hear from the peace De mocracy of the North, whether this pro gramme is according to their Ideas of pro priety. They must speedily come before the country-with something tangible and practi cable. One of the planks of Fernando Wood’s peace pisiform is'the abruption of thercbcl debt.

The gathering of cotton is now in full operation. By neemity, the planting of the cotton was two months later than it should hare been. The leasees, therefore, labored under great disadvantage. By the withdrawal of troops, too, the plantations were leit. without adequate protection, and the rebels made raids, carried off negroes, &c. This was at a time when it was important to cultivate the crops, and the result was that fully one-half of the crops were not worked at all, and in other cases, when some work was done, the weeds and plants had to grow up together, the former overlapping the latter. The army worm attacked all the late cotton, destroyieg from a quarter to a iulf of the crop. Under all these disadvantages, not one of the lessees will lose money, bat all will derive a profit. They are satisfied with the experiment, and all desire to release tor another |year. . The negro lessees, ot -whom there are fifteen, will make from four and five bales, up to, in one case, 150; and it is a fact that the cotton the negtoeehave raided fur theniSolveo, owing to better cultivation, is of a higher grade than the white lessees. The treeomen have worked for wages accord ing to the scale fixed on by the Board of Commissioners. They hare been well and abundantly fed, and schoals hare been eatab- Ibhed cn xdantaiions, all without any expense to the Government, The amoont of cotton on these plantations will be about 8000 biles, yielding a revenue to the Government ot about $15,000, while the Government will realize about $150,000 as its share of sales fiom plantations abandoned by the lessees. Our Prhoaers at Richmond. The executive authorities at Washington have received several calls, vrithin & hir cays, to present the case of the Federal pris oners at Richmond. It is understood that the War Department hts promised to scud the provision* ‘which arc moat needed, and, In cate of a refusal by the rebel authorities to permit them to he given to our soldiers, retaliation will be resorted to. It may be that retaliation will be commenced at once, a* the rebels insist that the ration* now given to prisoners axe ample, and they will not, probably, corstnt to an arrangement that will appear like an admission of their having waived our men in their hands. 1; h made public that the Christian Com u-Urion fees succeeded ia obtaining access to the prisoners at Richmond, with food and hospital stores. Large shipments are being znsde and received at Richmond. The Cota n.lf rion say that SB,OOO per day are needed to give each man a ration of twenty-five cents lids would make tho number ol prisoners there 12,000.

Our Be cent Successes in West Virginia; 'Wo bare given an account of the decisive victory to our arms at Droop Mountain. More recent advices Increase the magnitude ol the victory.

Kelly bad driven Jenkins at Mill Point, the latter was reinforced by Echols, from Lewishorg with Patten’s brigade and another regiment of Jenkins 1 command, and look a strong po : * sition upon the summit of Droop Mountain. General Kelly renewed the attack, turned the enemy’s lelt with Infantry,throwing Max into contusion, and then made a direct attack with four regiments of mounted cavalry. Oar vic tory was decisive, the-enemy suffering a total route, throwing away his arms, and scattering in every direction. Over 100 prisoners, arm*, cattle, provisions, one stand of colors, three pieces cf artillery fell into our bauds. Oar total loss was aboot oce hundred.

Two whole brigades of the ar my of North Virginia were captured on Sat urday. We learned this, not as a rumor, bat as a fact, from such a tource thu we cannot question Us accuracy. 11 Assault upon an Editor.

It occurred about five o’clock last evening. We met the late elucidate for Attorney General at the gate on the rorth comer cf the Capitol Fork, near our office. Be was coming out and we were go iig into tic Park. We reached the gate first and opened it. He stopped, as we supposed through politeness, when we told him to pass on. Upon this ho stepped forward and asked if we wrote an editorial paragraph about him that appeared in paper. His tone was insolent, and we replied in substance that It was none of his business. Thereupon the late champion oi free speech and liberty of the press, with an oatb,made alange upon nSj stilkieg with his fist. tnSft etlirtU enrprise, tint ifS-ded off the He then made several more charges, 'arret which we parried very easily, keeping him at arm’s Itngtfi.

We operated strictly on the defen sive, expecting the development of some more vigorous system of tactics, when our assail ant paused, crdlhe remainder of the affair consisted in hard words. ‘ The public will judge whether the individ ual has added anything to his reputation by this attempt to appeal from argument to force.

The Philadelphia Inquirer, a very conserva tive bnt loyal paper, commenting npoa the decision of the copperhead portion of the Ba prezne Court of Pennsylvania, against the constltuiionallty ol the Conscription Act, says: We may, however, offer some comments on a matter of history noticed by Judge Low rie as affecting his opinion that the framers of lie Constitution didnot design that Con gress should raise armies by coercive meas ures. He refers to Mr. Monroe's plan ot 1814. Honrce was Setnelary of War to Pres ident Madison, and his plan ia admitted by JudgeLowrie to be “very similar'’ to the present a:t, and adds that 11 no doubt this is some argument in favor of its eonatitntietul ity.l’ “But,'' he continues,” “this plan was not adopted by Congress,” and the snbjeet never received each a discussion as to settle the question.” Here are two matters of fact, on which a layman may take issue with a Judge. ThatplsnisasadoptedbyhorbHouscs. ot Congress, and there was a discussion, so prolonged and comprehensive as to settle the question in the minds of large majorities, ia both the Senate and the House, la that Con gress. The principal features of the bQI drafted upon Mr. Monroe’s recommendation were these: Provisions for classifying aft the ml lilia of the United States into small sections of from iwenty-five to onehtmdred men each, and every finch section was to tarnish from one to font men to serve In the army/or two years, by choice or by arrangement among themselves; bnt If sny class tallsd to fnmisn the man or men, then It was to submit to a draft tor the required number. To these was added another provision authorizing the Pres ident, in case any State Executive refuted to comply with the requisition, to call directly vn the officers ot the militia. •21 74 The bill embodying these principles was recognized in Cotgrtes as a measure of Jladi eon’s Administration., This never has been disputed, and cannot be disputed. It was contested by the opposition of that day on the ground that it was “compulsive,” that It was conscripilon,” that it was “ tyrannical” and “ destructive to civil freedom,” because it enabled “ the President of the United States to govern the militia before they were called into si nice.” The discussion lasted through the greater parts of November and December ot 1814: and notwithstanding this persistent, able and bitter opposition, the bill passed the Senate by a vote oi 10 to 12, and the House by a vote of 84 to 73. The House amend ment givirg the President power to over slaugh factious State Executives passed by a vole of 87 to 43. The bill only tailed to be come a law because of a difference between tbc two Houses about some 01 the amend* tnenls t not affecting the above described pro visions for drafting men Into the army. Upon these both Houses were agreed. The pros pect of the success of the ponding negotia tions for peace finally obviated the necessity for any farther legislation on the subject. Two or three points relating to this Import ant event in the military history of the Uni ted States should not be overlooked, even in this cursory notice of Judge Lowrle’s de clrion. The main object of the bill above referred to, by which the militia were to be clsgfified and drafts made from those classes, was to raise the regular army to 143.000 men. That object and tne mode of effecting it had the sanction of James Madison, who was once tupposed to know something of the powers granted to Congress by the Constitution. Senator Giles, of Virginia, quoted by Judge Lowrie, voted for the bill; It was supported by the entire Democratic party in thellonse; and John O. Calhoun, the great apostle of S ate Bights, voted for its moat stringent pro visions, at every division of the House, in tveiy stage of their pregrets. AMERICAN AIM> MEXICAN AFFAIRS. Visit of Plercfcr to Porcy—Tlie Seizure or tlio He be! Kami In Prance—A Preueb Fleet for Blexlco. tFron the N. Y. Ttlbuuc.l Washington, Nov, 8,15C3. The Embassador cf France, 11, Mercler, is, 1 am told, about to leave Washiogton fur New Yoik, lor the purpose of paying bis respects to Gen. Pore;, your uncxpcctea gae=t. HU arrival In jour city has taken the Frencb Le gation by surprise, for it was not expected that bo would visit the United States. It seems that the General himself was unwilling to stop here, and that bis presence among you is simply due to the want of coal for the frigate Panama, which carries him back to France. Although M. Mercler had repeatedly as sured Mr. Seward that the French govern ment would never penult or tolerate any in fraction of the neutrality to which France was pledgcdontbe American question, neverthe less, the official advice of its intention to stop the rams now building in French-ports for Confederate account, has been received here withn general feeding of satisfaction. It Is now a pretty well settled fact, that no rebel vessel now in European ports will leave the ravy-yard In which it has been built. The military authorities of Cherboarghwe Just received the official order to fit out thir teen vessels to sail shortly for the Golf of Mexico. This order clearly indicates that the French government places no reliance in the support which .Prince Maximilian's accept ance seemed to give to its projects, but that It intends to carry on the pacification of Mex ico on its own account, and without the par ticipation of any interested parties. These vessels, I understand, are not going iobiirgprothlonsto the army (the supply produced by the country Itself being more than sufficient for that purpose), but men, arms, and munitions of war. - The intention of the Emperor is to bring about the settlement of the Mexican difficulties before next Spring, and to employ in the prosecu tion ol that plan the vigor, energy, and activ ity which is characteristic of all French mili tary expeditions. Be evidently desires to get rid of this difficulty before the time for a war withßussla arrives, co as not to have on his hands two wars at once. There Is another reason for the Emperor to do away with the military obstacles to the Mexican expedition as soon as possible. This Is the difficulty In starting the Mexican loan. It. lactjto lorg ae Juarez*" army and the bands of roTli g guerillas disturb the peace and se entity of the country, to the perpetual bin' drarce of agriculture, industry, and trade, it will be extremely difficult if not impossible for Louis Napoleon to throw that loan into the market, and to recommend into the com fidtnee of the financial world. What makes him Eim more anxious to secure Its success is the tact That he looks upon It as a means of partially covering the $200,000,000 of the firming debt of France by retaining $40,000,000 indemnity upon the Mexican loan, the amount of which has been fixed at $150,* 000,000. This would eeusibly diminish the Influence of his opponents la the legislative hedy, who, with M.

French officers say these guerillas are Termed out of Juarez's army, which, be ing regardltta of all discipline, has divided Itaelf into fragments and spread all over the country. This report seems to receive con firmation from the news received from Ha vana, static g that Gen. NegretU’s army, formerly 5,000 strong, has dwindled down to 500 men. if this statement Is true, Juarez is in no position to resist the French column now marching against.

It Is reported that 150 guerillas have recent . ly attacked the railroad train now running between Vera Cruz and Ls Soledad. In the cars were several hundred passengers and only fourteen French soldiers, commanded by a captain of infantry. The fight was Car ried on with the ferocity peculiar to guerillas. Several pareergers, the commanding officer, and three soldiers were killed. But notwith standing the disparity of forces, the guerillas were finally put to flight, leaving In the hands of the French fourteen of their men, who were hung on the spot The depredations of the guerillas are not confined to Vera Cruz, but extend over all the provinces of Mexico. It would not be surprising If their extermination was to re quire double the number of soldiers now in active service, and the French Government may be compelled to send another army to Mexico. lam assured that it will do so it necessary.

Murder will Out. - [From the Blinds State Register, Not. 15th] Ezebius C. Morris, of Madison county, who is said to be a man of considerable property, has been arrested, on tbe affidavit ol one B. C. Clark, and committed to jail, on a charge of haying murdered a man on the 25th day of January, 1855, nearly nine years ago. Tbe facts in this extraordinary case may be briefly elated as follows: At the time above stated Clark and Morris, who reside near Collinsville, were out hunt ing together, and Clark's testimony Is that they came acrcsa a man In the woods, and that Morris drew up his gnu and shot him. The two together then buried the murdered victim and took a solemn oathnever to reveal the tecret. The oaih has been kept for nearly nine y ears. Bat “ murder will out ” Clark's cocscience continued to cry out against him and disturb him wi?h virions of ghosts by night, and compunctions cf dread and horror by day. He conld stand it no longer, and hence tbe oath bound secret, eo long locked up in bis troubled breast, was pabllsned to the worid. Morris, row the adtderhas been exposed, accuses Clark ot having committed the fool deed, but admits that he helped to bnry the victim, at d that they had sworn together never to reveal the secret - Jt is said that - Morriff and Clark recently quarreled about some business matters, and that Clark made the expose on this account. After the preliminary examination before the Justice of the Peace, Clark and Morris both pointed out the place where they had buried tie murdered man. His bones were found and exhumed. The name of the ua fortunate victim has not yet "beta learned. The Madlion InUUxqsnccr saya: We hare alf o beard that the murdered min was a kind of railroad contractor, and that ho had ia bis possession at the time of bis death some $7,000, which was divided between the two, but as to its correctness vre caacct say. This whole affair ia rather mysterious; bat, wc trust that the ends of justice maybe subserved, and that punishment maybe meted out to the CulHy. Wo presume that the whole affair will be thoroughly ferreted out in oar courts. IMPORTANT OFFICIAL OB* HER. 'Western Officers Dismissed the Service An order from Maj. Gen.

JR rmarkable Case of Pinoleaud Cool- UOAN* The Union 2fouilor t published at Hillsboro, II?., gives the following account cf a desper ate light with a deserter: Mr. Geo. W. Mlddlecoff, of Nokomla, act* log under properau-horiiy to arrest deserters, had a very desperate encounter on the 3d of this month, with a deserter, bj the name of David Brown, usually known as "Dave,” from Fayette county, bat who has been hang ing around In the northeast part of this coun ty. Mr. Mlddlecoff was at Henderson’s Mill at Audnboo, with his brother, on the after toon of eUc.ion day. Brown, who was walk it g off to the timber, was pointed out to Middleecff os a deserter, and he concluded he would anesl him. He succeeded in overtok itg him, bavlrg previously accosted him, took him by the right hand, and, holding it. otked him it be was a deserter. Brown said yte, that was what they called him. Middle coff then Informed him he had authority to amet deeerterr, and seized him by the other band, aid called for assistance. Brown said he would go, but wanted first to see his friends, Mlddlecoff then started back to wards the mill, when Brown succeeded la getting his right hand loose, and seized a re volver ri bleb was Jir-nia coat pocket and en deavored to cock It. In this he succeeded, getting both bands to the pbtol, bat Middle ccffwith both his hands, tamed the muzzle aride. A straggle then ensued of about a minute: at the end Of which time, Browa re hazed bis bold of the platol with the left bat d, and with this pulled out a small self cocklsg pistol, and was in the act of firing this when Mlddlecoff seized it with his right, metbirg down the hammer, and wrenched the sm»U pistol from his hand, and threw it cff. During this time Brown was endeavor ing to dhclarge the revolver, and did In fact discharge one barrel, but mbeed Mlddlecoff, wbo was holding cff (be revolver with his left. TVbcntha Email pistol was disposed of. Ert>wn mede five or sis attempts to get hold cfa dagger ■with his left, the hoodie of which was exposed- To prevent this Middle coff released his hold with the left, and with both hands parried these attempts to obtain tie degeer. Daring this struggle for the dagger, Brown was striking MtddlecofT over the head with the revolver (Colt’s Improved), and inflicted several severe wounds. In the ecr file Midclecoff fell on one knee, his antag onist in the mean lice pounding him on the bead, bnfehe recovered and then concluded it was about time to begin to do some fighting on his own account. He thrust his right hard In Ms coat pocket, and Jerked out his own pistol (Smith & Wesson), but not until after two or three efforts', it havlog dropped through and become fust in the lining of the pccket. He got it out, however, bringing the pocket lining wl h it, cocked It with hls thumb, presented it, acd endeavored to pall the trigger, but net being in practice, polled too high, otherwise Brown wonld have been settled. Brown’s time, it seems, had not come, for he strurk his opponent’s pistol with Ms own, bnt by the concussion, both pistols were knocked out of the respective hazds that held thtm, and took no farther part in the light. Brown mode a lunge for the pistols, bnt was thwarted in that attempt also. He now bethought Mm of his legs, and hade them carry him away from the scene of action, hot his fate was like that ot Tam O’Shanter's nare, for he lost his coat tail by a fortunate grab of his antagonist. The parties ran up some steps, when Mid dkcoff seized Brawn’s coat by the elbow, tore it off also, aad by renewed exertions seized him by theshonlder and stopped him. Btown then tried the gouging game. Mid dleccfi: seized him by the hair, and gave him an overhaeded lick on the head which brought the bleed, and soon got him down, his wind pipe grappled by Brown’s hand, which he, however, knocked oil; and by a few blows rendered him helpless. At this stage of the fight Middlecoff’a brother came up, and the deserter was tied, and in due time taken to Nokomls, where the wounds of both were dressed. Mlddlccoff received some eight cute ou the bead, and ecyeral very severe blows Jn the face, tbs Marks of which yet ap pear, hut at the time of this writing is ready lor duty again, which we warrant him not to chirk. Be is fifty years old, and weighs about ICO pounds, while Brows is only twen ty-two, vigorous and active, ondafewponnds less in weight. The deserter was duly brought to BJlsboro, and token by Deputy Provost Marshal Ecclc a to Alton and placed in ance vile. 1 ’ "We hope he will receive the re ward he justly merits. The fight was one of the most desperate we Lave almost ever read oil and evinced the settled determination of Brown not to be taktn if he conljl prevent it by taking the Jiie of the person who should make the at tempt. Mr. Mlddlecoff is entitled to great credit for this coolness and a perseverance which we do not believe wonld have been ex ercised by one man in a hundred under simi lar circumstances. Any question about his courage are definitely fixed, and deserters who come under his eye may as well take note of it. Famine and 'Crnclljr in Bldtmond.

EKIT£9I£IVTn HOmTBEdL A Britbh Subject Kidnapped. [From tbe Montreal Herald, Nov. 11.] A singularly dangerous and unlawful act was recently ptrpctraltdia this city, by which a British subject was, ia broad daylight, ia ore of the most public streets, seized with - out warrant or authority, and by threats of ptrtonal injury, by means of loaded sticks in the hands of the ruffianly kidnappers, forced into a cab and driven rapialy to toe St Lam bert wharf, conveyed on board the ferry boat, thence in> o the cars, and hurried off with rail read speed to the United Slates. The-victim ol this high-handed act Is VT. J. Louis Bed path, a British subject, formerly a resident of New York, and recently employed in the Commercial Agency ol this city. The prin cipal agent in this scheme was a man named Jones, a quasi detective, who baa been living ii. .Montreal for some time by his wits, and who achieved.spme notoriety in connection with the .case, against parties prosecuted here some time ago, for vending “immoral jewelry.” Jones procured the . assistance of an old eojoier, named. Hawkins, who Is of unsound mind, and of intemperate habits. Be represented to this man that he would obtain an appointment for him on the police force ot New York if be exhibited skill in thib operation. Jones met Bedpath in his boarding-house, where an acquaintance was formed which led Bedpath into the trouble experienced. Jones and Hawkins met Red path in Great St. James street, on the BUt ultimo, and arrested him, ono represent ing himself to be a Montreal detective, and the other a New York detective, with a tele . graphic dispatch from New York, directing the arrest of Bedpath. They then hustled him into a cab, and drove rapidly to the St. Lambert ferry-boat. In the cab, and in the boat, they cautioned Bedpath against making any noise, showing him, as their warrant, a' letter purporting to he signed by Mr. Old dings, American Consul General, authorizing them to apprehend two men, named repeat Ively Louis and Burke, and convey them to the States, and appointing Hawkins as assist ant to Jones, promising that all their reason able expenses would be paid on reaching New York. This warrant waskeptby Jones, who told Bedpath, while proceeding to the lines, that he was informed oy two Americans who were deserters from the Unite States army, that he (Bedpath) had been concerned in the New York nets, and was under the charge of anon and murder, being' suspected ofhavijigtaken a part in hanging a negro; and the loci of Redpatb,.whosename wastben not known to Jones, having been calledLoals while In the boardlog-honte, left no doubt on Jones* mind that he was the'guilty party. They told the prisoner he would not be long In their custody, and to go along with them without makirg noise or resistance. On ar riving at Burlington he was taken before the sheriff, who said, on belrg shown this warrant, signed *• Qlddirgs,” that he thought they bed no right to detain Redpatb, They confined him in gaol at Burlington for a day or over, during which time he succeeded in writing a letter to Mayor Beaudry, and after wards took him to New York, where he was conveyed to headquarters and locked up for the night. Redpatb. bad told Jlecb that he had. written to the Mayor at Montreal, with the object of enlisting his in terference inhisbebaU which seemed to make an*in<preetion. TVblle In the cell an officer asked Bedpath to sign a paper setting forth that ho had accompanied Jones to New York of his own accord, aid would not hold him responsible in auywsy.cn which condition only would he be liberated. Bedpath refused aid was locked up another night, being re futed permheion'to see or communicate with his ftietde.; Alawyer was permitted to visit biro by promising to use iuk Influence to ob tain Btdpaih’s signature to the paper. He intormeo the latctrthat as the writ of habeas corpus was suspended, the only thing he could do, if he must have his liberty, was to sign the document in question, and farther in formed him that the signature being compal eory, the document would not be blading. Redpatb, who is comeumptlve, acd bad ent itled from confinement, was obliged to con cent to save his life, and on being conveyed to tbe office of the Chief of the DeUctlve Force, signed the paper and was discharged on Thursday. Bedpath remained a short time in New York with his friends, and re turned hereon Saturday night. On arriving here Jones caught sight of his victim, and fled instantly from his presence. This offence is regarded in law as a misdemeanor, bat one of a high character. She lake Erie Plot. The entire country, Including Canada, has been bigbly excited doting the past week over the discovery of a plot which is suppo-ed to have been Incubating la Canada for some time, by the rebel sneaks and secesh sympa thizers, for the purpose of Üboratlug the se cesh prisoners on Johnson’s Island, some l A nr thousand In number—all officers—barn Buffalo. Cleveland, seize Detroit, by a Luge rebel invading force, occupy It during tno winter, and the organization th»n of alarge rebel lorce against Michigan, Ohio and In diana, and, In fact, play the mischief with the Yankees generally, we will briefly give the facts as they have already come to light. Information reached Governor Tod, of Ohio, early last week, that a plot was on foot among rebel sympathizers In Canada to liber ate the lour thousand rebel prisoners—all of them officers—including among them General Trimble, General Jeff Thompson and General Jones, on Johnson’s Island, and then such depredations os were possible, such as burn ing Sandusky, Toledo, Cleveland, Buffalo, «fec., aid then make their escape into Canada. Governor Tod immediately telegraphed to Washington the information he had received. The Government at first hesitated to give credence to the extraordinary story, bat on Thursday last, Lord Lyons received a dis patch from the Governor General of Canada wamlug him of the existence of the plot. tdUrgblnrtnepon waS'to setae er on the lake, give it such offensive material as They could, proceed at once to Johnson’s Island, liberate the prisoners, eall lmmedi alely for Buffalo, bum It, *fcc. Lord Lyons at once communicated the dispatch to Secre tary Seward, who transferred is to' Secretory Stanton, and that official immediately tele graphed the substance of U to .Mayor Fargo, of Buffalo, that the necessary precautions which tho ex'e demanded might at once be made, the Secretary promising that the Gov ernment will employ oil the means In Its power to suppress any hostile attack from any source. On the Tuesday previous to the events nar rated above, Mrj. Pierscn, in command of Johnson’s Island, received information that a fully armed and equipped gunboat had left the Canadian shore with the intention of as sisting in releasing the prisoners. He had other information, also, that simultaneously with the appearance of the pirate, a general uprising and attack was to be made by the rebel prisoners, the guards overpowered, the arsenal seized, Sandusky to be pillaged and burned, and the rebels then to make their es cape to Canada. These facts were Immediate ly communicated to Qov. Tod, who, upon re -celvirg the information, stopped a ttain with four hundred prisoners on its way from Co lumbus to Sandusky, telegraphed to 001. Sea ler to Dispatch troops to the scene of antici pated trouble, and a considerable force was sent. The United States gunboat Michigan, wMch was In the harbor cf Sandusky, at once lock position in front of the prison on the island ready to pay her compliments to any piratical craft that might appear, or send a de structive fire among the prisoners, should there beany manifestations of revolt. Other measmeshave also been taken, to render Johnson’s Island secure against aoy attack from without, or revolt from within. Buffalo, Cleveland, Sandusky and Detroit have not tern Idle since the alarm commenced, and every measure for the securityof the froatler, under the order ot Gen. Dtx, has been taken. The Canadian Parliament has also moved in the matter. This is M the situation ” ot the great Lake Brie Plot to day. Exactly how formidable this great Canadian naval raid in Us design and execution was to be, is not known, and perhaps never will be except to those engaged la it. It is pretty cer tain, however, that it Is afragmentary portion of the other rebel plot which has been re cently developed In Ohio. A correspondent of the New York Times telegraphs from 'Washington that It is understood there that Ysllandigham, James Clay, and Marshal Kane bad fully arranged for passing through the Welland Canal au armed steamer, whose mis sion was, first, to open the prisdn doors for the captive rebels at Sandusky Bay; second, to arm and equip these veterans, over 2.000 In number; third, to seize as many propellers on Lake Erie as were needed, and arm and . man them; fourth, to make Buffalo a heap of ashes, and her vessels in port charred skele tons ; fifth, to hum Cleveland: sixth, to wipe out the commerce of Lake Erie; seventh, to consume Detroit, and in effect destroy the commerce and cities of the lakes, from Ogdensbnrg to Chicago, at a blow. The correspondent of the New York World In Washington, telegraphs that Attorney Gen eral McDonald, of Canada, Is there, and brings information which shows the seriousness of ite plot for the release of the prisoners, etc. Lord Lyons received information of the scheme from a citizen of Baltimore, two months sgo. It appears that a number of se cessionists were to take passage on thaChica go and Ogdenshurg propellers and seize them, then intercept the Detroit and Buffalo steam ers, then threaten Ogdensbnrg and Buffalo. They were to be aided by emissaries in Buffalo, who wonld fire that city. The Toronto Adverting a secession sheet, in its Issue of the 14th, admits the existence of the naval plot and Its failure. It says . the Confederate Government fitted out the steamer B. E. Lee, from Wilmington to Hali fax, with a cargo to furnish funds. Thirty six officers and three hundred men were to come overland in small parties to & general rendezvous. Their Intention was to surprise the Federal garrison at Johnson’s, Island, liberate the prisoners there and convey them to Canada. 01 course the story cooked up in the De troit Fi cc Press, of a M daring, gigantic and dangerous rebel scheme,** comprehending .the seizure of Detroit and Its-occupancy dur ing the winter, and the organization of a jtbel army to take the field in the spring lor invading Ohio, Michigan and Indiana, and that lor this purpose 100,000 rebe’a could be found in Canada, is purely sensational. There are not probably ten thousand rebels in the entire province ot Upper Canada. Tlie Rebel Officers on Johnson's Island Reduced to their Rations* [From the Cleveland Herald, Nov. 14th ] It will be gratifying to the people to learn that the sale cf delicacies sndluxuries to the rebel prisoners nas been stopped. Hitherto nothing has been too good for them The markets ol Sandusky have been stripped of delicacies to supply their demands, and one fellow had actually prepared to open a saloon in the rebel's quarters for the sale of game, oysters, etc., which he had engaged to be sup plied him, and. which the grey-back* were enabled to buy with the funds raised in re sponse to theii\ impudent begging letters, which were sent far and near. The rebels sent letters to every person with whom they could establish the shadow of an acquaintance, and invariably ended by begging imney. One letter is a sample cf the lot. A young lady In Utica, New York, who bad been teaching/ school -in Alabama, received a letter from a rebel prisener who had seen her In the Son h, reminding her ot the fact, and begging for .money, saying be w>a ragged &nd outying. With the .money raised by such means the rascals have been living in clover. Game ot ell kinds hare been bought to such an extent firtbe rebels, that the citizens of Sandusky complain that they cannot get any far their own table. One lot of twenty four boxes of v Ine went up a fcw.days since from a promi nent Cleveland firm, bound for the island. It is eatisfretory to know that these outrageous proceedings has been stopped, nod that tae rebels hare to come downtooidinury rations.
