MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23. ISM, GREAT IS HMIH*, Yes, great is Hallcckl Had he never been called to the post that he fills that of Gcncral-in-GMel —his Order No. Three, and his everlastingly memorable edge of Corinth would have secured for him that mention in history that is not unlrc qnently denied to daring and worth. In this common-sense world, and in this coun try of ours where common-sense is almost sure to win its way, blank stupidity is al ways to be mentioned: Halleck will fill s volume. Hallcck is General-in-Chief To him tire planning of campaigns is refereed—to bim as a West Pointer, and presumptively a man of science. He, under tbe Presi dent, who docs not pretend to know the bidden mysteries that lie within inner and outer circles,.is tbe ultimate authority. -Jlis Jlaf is conclusive. “lam tbe Amy," ,isie may say with just as mneb truth as i-onis XIV used to say, “ I am tbeSiitfc!” And now bejiold what be baa ordered: . An expeditiin to Brownsville ol—we know nut of bow many men—an ezpedt . tion that might be in order when all the other enemies ol the Republic are put down; but which is now sadly out of . keeping with the exigency of the national situation. He is for nipping tbe rebellion on its edges, while its heart bests land and strong. He is the champion ol exterior lines. Besides this, the expedition of "Wash bnme,Teiasward, by tbe way of Opelousas, —what is that but a stroke of genius of which order No. 8 was . but tbe premoni tion—genius that triumphs over swamps, bayous and timber though it may not con quer the enemy. And while these expe ditions are floundering, the one in the seri and the other in the mud, wc see what the want is elsewhere. Burnside beleaguered by a superior force, cries tor help that cannot reach him, and Grant, abut up in Chattanooga at the head of an army that is battered and bruised by a late encounter, cannot move a peg. Meade cannot go forward and cross the Eapidan, because his force, weakened by the sending off of detachments to the Cum*, berland, bas not the strength to overcome the obstacles opposed! Defeat stares the armies in the face, because our forces are divided and sent off on Tom-fool’s er rands—to do something that will have no influence on the Anal and much-desired result. Had Grant a half of the men that are butting their brains out against cypress knees in that Opelousas country, he could push on; and his first move would call back to his front the columns that now, under Longstreet, threaten Knoxville and the continuity of our line. Hooker and his corps would have been saved to Meade and the fortifications that his army could not have safely assaulted, could have been turned. Meanwhile a dozen gunboats on the Mississippi could have kept every rebel on the west side of that stream. Five hundred men afloat could have done the work of fivc-and-thirty thousand now in the field. Is not the wisdom, the foresight and necessity of Order Ho. 8 vindicated in what we relate? The country inquires why it is that Hal- Icck, with that cabbage head of his, retains Lis place—why he is not permitted to re tire to his ancestral krout gardens on the Mohawk, and there, among his kindred, find, in the killing of cut-worms and the care oi his cabbage crop, the emyloyment for which his genius is fitted. Aud if Burnside is gobbled up and Grant is forc ed to retreat, that inquiry will grow into a demand that will be sure to make itself heard. "We, who do not care for all the cpauletted dignity that the President can confer on mediocrity, press the demand now. Cabbages for Halleck, and war for those who have the genius to compre hend it! THE KNOXVILLE DANGER. Our lines of assault, exterior of course, are supposed to extend from Yickshuig to Chattanooga, from Chattanooga to Knox ville, and from Knoxville, by a military fiction, to Western Virginia, and by the way of Washington to Fortress Monroe.. The object of the enemy is to break through. He tried it at Gettysburg and was defeated. He tried it in Western Virginia and was beaten back. He tried it at Chickamauga and was checked. Bis effort is now npon Knoxville; and it the half that we apprehend Is realized, he will succeed. We tremble to think what will be the consequences of success. Chatta nooga, thus turned, must be evacuated in haste, and Grant, with insufficient trans portation—nay, with almost no transporta tion at all,—must make his way back, by such methods as be can, to supporting dis tance of the Ohio. Huntsville, Stevenson, Tuscumbla and Hashville on the one ride, and Cumberland Gap,on the other,must fall into rebel hands; and lucky will ibearmy be, if, thus assaulted in -flank, it can find safety in precipitate flight! Lucky will it Buell’s was before it, if it is not forced to stand and be destroyed on ground that the enemy may choose. This is the situation, and the country may as well look it in the face. The results of a whole year of rime, of half a dozen battles, of an outlay of more than two hundred millions of dollars, are pen dent on the success of the enemy’s attempt If Knoxville lolls, all is lost in the south west, and Stone river and Chickamauga go for naught The lives that they cost have been wasted. "We know no reason, outside of the in efficiency and incompetency of Gen eral Hallcck, why this array of evils should now confront the country and send a cold chill down to the soles of eveiy loyal man's boots. And we know of no remedy save that heroic one of sending Holleck, who is responsible for the army's movements, back to the cap taincy for which he is best fitted, or to tbe Mohawk and the cabbages among which, he was reused. The disaster now threatening has . been foreseen for more than a month. It has been the constant theme of the rebel papers and their loudest boost. There is not a man in the land who did not know of the move ment intended. There is not, save one at "Washington, a General-in-Chief, who would not have made a counter movement to check it If ‘ Knoxville falls, and Burnside is destroyed, let the hereof Corinth—the author of Order Mo S—look out Mot even Presidential favor can save him! "WAIT A. IliriE. A most important mass meeting of the colored men of New Orleans was held a short lime since for the purpose of petit ioning Gov. Shepley for the right to vote. This rebellion daily develops some strange questions which will need and demand solution,and among them is this one of the status of free colored men in Louisiana and other States. The meeting was an im mense one and the proceedings were order ly and in form. Speeches were made on the question and among them one by Capt. Pinchbeck, a colored officer, who summed up the matter in a most concise and forcible shape. He said they did not demand social equality, they only asked for political right They wanted to be men. The veiy essence of the proposition he puts in this logical shape: ‘ If colored people ate citizens, they should be allowed to vote; if they are not citizens, they are exempt from the drait" Tie speaker pus his question well, but is in too great a hurry. There are graver questions than this that are wait ing for answers. * Let Captain Pinchbeck and his colored soldiers first ascertain whether we have a country for them to live in. Let them wait until they find whether the negro will own himself, his wife and his children, and receive the honest traits ol his _ labor. The rebellion has got to be finished up and this Union main tained. These are the prime questions. Let Uiem rest content that human bondage will go dorm with the rebellion. Put the rebellion dokn. Bind your energies te i hat point, and proro your manhood with ; onr swords; There is time enough yet • ii the abstract questions. COST OP TEK STHUCSIS. 'Whoso thinks that the game is not worth the candle, and the work of getting i id olhuman slavery, is sadly disproporlion cd to the potency of the institution for mischiet, has but a faint realization of tbe monster that Slavery is, and but an im* perfect knowledge of tbe great convul sions that have always attended great re forms. To mention but one illustration cf what we mean: Feudalism on the Continent waa hut par tially overborne by the aeriea of wars, the most gigantic ef modem history, lasting from 1793 to 1815, in which millions of men lost tbeir lives, and in which also al most every State was shaken to its foundations. Thus far the progress of this country has been cheap. Great events require gigantic means for their removal; and it is not for us who can look ahead to the beneficent rfltnl's attainable by success, to complain of cost. France, redeemed sad regenerated by the Revolution and its consequence*, could not afford to accept her old condi tion tinder Louis SV-, though every man that she has lost in tbe straggles lor free dom were restored to life. It is sometimes as bloody to preserve a good thing as to overthrow a bad one. All good govern ments have cost blood. It is the cement in which freedom is always laid. EXCHANGE OF FHISONSBS. The N. Y. JScening Post has a Washing ton letter; of the 18th, which says: Toe question of a resumption ol the exchange of ptitonen with the rebel authorities at Rich* mend is an absorbing one at the present time, and I have reason to buiiere that the President and Secretary of War are ranch exercised by it. It is probable that tbe exchange will soon be made; bat the clamor in some of tbe newspapers for it is ex ceedingly recklees and xu-just. Tne principle in toltaolb one of immense importance; and, if the Government gives wey to the unjust demands of the rebel leaders, hereafter it la attbelrmercy. It should be borne in mind that, if the Government accede to the demands of the South now, it mast do the same thing in reference to onr colored sol diers who are impritoned as felons in the rebel .fails. It can do nothing for the white officers who commanded black troops, bet who bare been cap tured. The Resident, tt Is sold, complains that the Journals in the North which blamed him three mouths ego for not surpstdUg the exchange alto* gather, because tbe rebels would not surrender white officers of colored regiments, now blame him for not submitting to still mare monstrous demands. One gentleman, who is deeply Interested in this subject, and who has been onto Washington, ur ges the President to submit to any d-mand rather than leave oar solders to starve lu Richmond jail a. Borne of the officials of the War Department very properly. reply to such requests as this: “Then we may as well atop the war; for all tint Jeff. Davit) hue to do to end it is to threaten ns with the starvation of oar troops now In his hands. If we will notackrowledgf. the Independ ence of the Confederacy.” It Is p*obahle that the Government will arrange the duScolfiet Id some way with the rebel Government. It will doubtless 'give way on many points to meet the public senti ment or the country: bat I am sure, from what I have heard from the lips of more than one of the members, tint It dislikes to read a;tirios in loyal journals, attempting to show that it should sub mit to the rebel demands at every hazard, even at the expense of manliness and honor. Will the Post name some of the “loyal journals” that are attempting to show that the Administration should submit to the rebel demands at any hazard, even at the expense of manliness and honor.” We havea pretty large exclnnge list, but can not recollect seeing an article in a single loyal paper that advocates the course named by the Hew York Post We don’t believe that any member of the Cabinet has occasion to make such complaint. The copperhead sheets have argued that our authorities were all wrong and the rebels all right, in the controversy respecting the exchange of prisoners. As might be ex pected, they always take the side of the rebels, and oppose their own Government. But we hope the Administration is not go ing to be influenced by clamor coming from that quarter; they might as well be influenced by the statements in the Rich mond papers. Will *J»e Hew Tork ro&t specify some of the loyal papers that are urging the Government to submit to the dishonorable demands oi the rebels in re lation to exchange of prisoners ? A BAD DECISION. A recent decision of the Commissioner oi Internal Revenue, that bankers are not only liable to tax for the amount of de posits that they have on hand, but thei balances with other hanks are also taxa ble, seems to us to be wanting in that equity that should mark the dealings of the Government with the individual. For inst&qpc, A, a hanker in Chicago,having a deposit account of a quarter ot a million of dollars, every cent of which is taxed, keeps one hundred thousand dollars in Hew Tork against which to draw for his customers who own the money. That bal ance is taxed a second time as the prop erty of A, and a third time as the deposit of the Hew York banker in whose hands it rests. The injustice is obvious; and we wonder how such a decision could have been made. A TIMELT QUESTION. You, who, in view of the excessive in crease of prices of all the materials of liv ing, complain of the low wages paid for labor, and of the impossibility of “ getting on”—what do you think of a system that condemns men to work for a life time, without any pay ? Is that the one which you, as laboring men, dependent upon your daDy toil for your drily bread, are in clined to support ? If a man, because he is black, may be compelled to toil without pay, why should not a man with a red head, or of Irish or German birth, do the same thing ? When the next. “ strike” for higher wages occurs among the mechanics of Chicago, let this question be considered. Important Decisions of the Treasury Department. Some important rules and regulations have been prescribed by the Secretary ot the Trea sury, concerning the manufacture of medi dues, preparations, compositions, perfumery and cosmetics, and transmitted for the infor mation of officers of the customs and Inter nal revenue. Bonded warehouses shall be in charge of the Collector'of Customs, and the officers appointed to take charge of them shall be paid as storekeepers. Goods can only be removed upon the written permit of the Collector, on the written request of the Collector of Internalßevenne. A book shah be kept to record all goods removed. Medi cines,- preparations,* perfumery, &c., ghair only be removedfromthebonded warehouses (dess two) Cor exportation. On the sth of every month the Superintendents shall make a return of articles received. " An Important decision has also just been made concerning the operations of rectifiers, distillers and brewers. A rectifier must pay |25 for every five hundred barrels rectified, and his license must expire on the Ist day of May following its issue. Hie license, if is sued after the Ist of May, must be issued ou the payment of a ratable proportion of the whole amount of duty imposed for such license. The same principle will regulate the issue of fractional licinces to distillers and brew C! 6 Collectors of internal revenue are notified that United States currency only will be re ceived from them on deposit on account of internal revenue taxes collected by them. Specific directions are also given on the as sessment of stamp duties on prepared medi cines, chemical compounds and other patent compositions. Every such article prepared under some private formula or occult secret is liable to he clamped, in whatever Hmnnw the labels may be varied. .

[FromonrSptchtl Correspondent] torn Eock, Art., Nor. 11,1853. The new, ef Col, Ciajton’a victory at Pino Blnff went North aorae time since. It was a meet gallant defense made against superior numbers. A less determined man than Col. Clayton aright have committed the indis cretion of surrendering, but It wan not In the natnre ef that officer to give np without a fight. In the language cf one of Mb Cap* rains, “he wasn't going round inrrSnder icg.ll Cob Clayton had met-Marmadnkein several engagements on previous occasions and had on each time been snccessfoL M.r m.anie ought by this time, to consider Mm eelf an nnlncky officer. He is often getting into bottle butts Invariably whipped, what Is worse he never makes half a fight. He al ways retreat! after losing a few men, rarely more thanprne in ten, and often not half that number. At Cape Girardeau he lost less than one hundred ont”ef eight thousand, and thrn retreated after having marched two hundred and fifty miles to make the attack. At Helena he did likewise, his division being tbe first for ce that retreated in that battle. His best fight was that wMch hs made at Pioe Blnffi Helelt certain of his prey when he be gan the attack, and waa mnclLchagiined to be compelled to give it np. A joke about the battle ia that the rebels reported they had uts terly dcfea'ed onr forces and captured two hundred mules. Some tMrty or forty mules stampeded during the fight and went over to tbe enemy, and this it tbe only booty they have to ebowforall their efforts. A dozen victories like that would finish np Mhnnaduke completely. General Steele has issued an order compli mentary of the defence made by Colonel Cray ten; Heathjcartsrs Arorr of Arkansas, ) Litter Rock, Ark , Not 7,1803. J [General Orders No 41.] It ia fit that the conduct of troops on the battle field, especially gallant and heroic, should be pub licly approbated by the cammaadiog officer, atd officially published for the emulation of the whele command Therefore, the Major General commanding the Army of the Arkansas, publishes to his conusaad ibesefacta: . On the day of October lait, the Ctralrr Brigade, cosslEtlag of the 6th Kansas and Ist In diana cavalry, commanded by Cel. PoweH Clay ton. and numbering less than six hundred mea, waa attacked at Bine Bluff, Arkansas, by an army of rebt]i, twenty-tire hoedred in number, with twelve pieces of artillery. Trewed by th!» overwhelming force they fought them for ive hours, and diore tuem dis comfited aud with heavy loss fcobi the field. Ra ti eat ard surrender were words unknown to these brave men, and their determined heroism iiaa In flicted a blow upon the rebel army not soon to be forgotten. • . The Major General commanding, hereby tenders to CoL Powell Clayton and hie brave command, his sincere and earnest thanks for their gallant con duct in the defense of Pine Bluff, and they can rest well asm red that their gallantry deserves and will receive the applause of their government and the loyal people, the highest ambition of xhe true sol dier. By order of Uaj. Gen. F, Steele. F. G. Mactee, Colonel and Chief or Staff. Since the light at Pine Bluff the rebel* have been very quiet. M&rmailnko fell back from tbit point to ArkodelphU and thence west ward toward Texas. The mala force cf the rebel army bad gone there in advance of aim, no that Arkansas is now practically free from ihe pres-nee of the rebus. Maraiadnke was doteH followed to ArkodelphU by our troops, but he had same ten boors start when they arrived there. We found bat little in the town worth capturing.* All the machinery from the Little Rock Arsenal had been moved to Fulton, and has probably been taken to Texas or is lying idle at the former point. The rebels would hardly dare to set It up In Fulton, as the place would be liable to cap ture at any time by our cavalry. Washington, in Eempsted county, is one of thtir import ant points, as it is in the midst of a fertile country. Camden, on the Washita, a place of very nearly the size of Little Rock, also contains a small garrison, more for purposes of occupation than with any design of fight ing. The country where the rebels now are contains a plenty of corn and beef, but is des titute of all other articles of supply. The line of the Bed River can be considered the rebel front for the winter, while the line cl the Arkansas is ours. From the e&et to the west borders of Arkansas we hold Pine Bluff Little Rock, Lcwisburg and Fort Smith, all of them being on the river. It was to break through this line and get to our communications at Da rail’s Bluff that Mar xosduke made his attack upon Col. Clayton. The quantity cf artillery with which he came up ahowb that he had designs upon our transports and their mosquito convoys upon White River. Had he be*a successful, ha would have caused no much trouble, his Xorce, consisting of cavalry, enabling him to make rapid movements.. At present, it is thought that he has detached email portions of his command to annoy our front keep ns constantly on the alert. : Shelby, with the remnant of his forces that made the raid into Missouri, is probably by this time with the rtbel forces near Fulton, •r rather with the debris of it that is left be hind. At last accounts he was passing through Waldron, a small town to the south and east of Fort Smith. Gen. S teele has dis patched seme cavalry to look him up and precure a fight 11 possible. Shelby’s heroes are completely worn out, and all hia artillery is gone. He will avoid all encounters with our troops unless he shall be forced into it Shelby’s retreat leaves no rebel force of any importance north of the Arkansas River. There are a few marauding guerilla bands, hut they are powerless for any extensive evil doing. A small force, supposed to he a detachment ofMarmaduke’acavalry, yesterday captured a train ol ten wagons, on their way to Ben ton, a tmall post twenty-five miiivt south of here. The train was laden priuclpally with clothing, and was guarded by an escort ol fif teen men. About fourteen miles out of Lit tle Rock, cs the train was moving carelessly along, with the escort some twenty rods in advance, a parly of fifty guerillas suddenly dashed in between the tram and escort. The escort formed in line of battle, but concluded that the disparity of numbers was too great to render it worth while to fight. They fled to Benton, leaving the guerillas to plunder the train at their leisure. They took all the clothing they could pile on the hocks of the mules, and then set the wagons on fire. Only two wagons were consumed the balance being saved in a damaged condition. As soon as news reached this point a force of cavalry was sent out in pursuit, but the robbers were too lar away to be overtaken. This is the first robbery for some time, and will serve to put our officers on their guard. So long a ptried had passed since the guerillas made any trouble that everybody was becoming careless. If any of them are cap*nred wear ing our clothing they will speedily fiad them selves at the end of their career. If Marma duke wishes to dress, his men in Federal uni forms he must first color the cloth to a genu ine butternut. Guerilla warfare is exceedingly unpopular with the natives, far more so than with the people of Mhcouri. If Missouri had suffered as much tram the war as has been undergone by Arkansas, her citizens would bs much bet ter disposed towards the world in general and each other la particular. Guerillas are nu merous, but they confine their operations principally to the robbing of men who go in to the country to buy cotton. Along the TOdte river no beat has been fired Into with the exception of some half dozen shots at a transport near Des Arc,a short time ago. In some of the larger towns the people Late banded together to protect themselves from guerillas, and are resolved to maintain law and order in their midst. The residents of Arkansas have seen as much ot war os they desire; and if allowed to do so will not be long In making peace. The stores are ee completely sold out and deserted that the guerillas find nothing to steal, and they dis cover themselves in mnehthe same condition as the thief who broke into an empty ware house. It will not be long before guerilla warfare in this State will be entirely aban doned. The situation of the rebels in the southwest may be briefly summed up: Kirby Smith com mands . the Trans-Mississippi Department w Ith Magruder Holmes andDickTayloyashis lieutenants. Holmes has been driven practi cally from Arkansan, though a part of Ms forces are lurking in the southwestern part of tbe State. Everything is being withdrawn to Marshal!, Texas, as a new point and base of operations. A report has been brought here that Dick Taylor is called from Louisiana to Marshall with the main portion of his force. If this be true it frees the Teche country from tbe presence of that rebel. Magruder has for hit part the defence of Teas, and he finds his cares growing upon mm since the recent movements from Hew Orleans in his direction. He will need more men t-hftw the force which was originally assigned him. It is estimated that the whole force under Kirby Smith, west of tbe Mississippi Elver is not tar from twenty thousand. In detached divisions or corps this army could accomplish but little. The concentration at Marshall is a very sensible movement, as it will enable the offensive to be taken in one, and only one, direction. They can move up into Kansas and Missouri as far as the Missouri Elver, and then back again. They can return to Arkan sas, and if they do not drive out Qea. Steele, which they cannot do with his present force, they can cause the contraction of hiiline*,and by threatening or actnailycnttinghis commu nications, may compel him to erocuateg little Bock. This success would be but temporary as they would in turn be obliged to abandon Little Bock and once more go back to Bed Elver. The most probable disposition that will be made of this combined force will be to send it to tbe assistance ol Magruder, leaving of course a considerable body of cavalry in Ar kansas to keep up a show of strength and bang along our front nod Galveston and Austin arc now tbe most important points to tbe rebels between tbe Mississippi and ibe Bio Grande. It docs not yet appear whether ibe rebels have any force of conse quence at Brownsville, opposite Mitamoras, but the probabilities are they have not. It Magrnder falls to bold Galveston be *wol throw Texas practically into our hands. H the troops in the Department of the Gall are sent in mat direction Kirby Smith will have employment for all bis army without sending them to annoy either Little Buck or Port Smith. 14,034 18,691 The rebel army in the Southwest Is on Us last lege. lam aware tnat the above is a somewhat hackneyed phrase, and that the whole rebellion ba* Once a month been- an* Bounced as in tbe final stages of decay. When I assert that Kirby Smith's army is abont “ gone to the denmition bow wows,” 1 mean It in sober earnest. As rats leave a sicking ship, the rebels arc leaving that army. Not a day passes that we do not have from three to twenty arrivals from Holmes* command, all of them seating that they consider the Confederacy abont ended. Some of these men enlist In enranny; others go North,and then go to their homes, with the design of staying there. At the other military pasts there are similar arrivals, end we are ttld, what is probably.ttuo, that others are many deseiUr» who to,their homes er to tome place of concealment -in the muua ‘talits, who cotoenearour Hoes at aIL They da not complain' of short rations or rough treatment, farther than the ordinary strict dieciplice cf the rebel army. Their ncltertal story Is that the. rebellion west of the treat river is ended, and, like Jerry Blos som, they“ want to go home.” The great scarcity in the rebel army is of medicines aid clothing; carpets have been cot up to make bUbkeis, so that half the parlerflcors in the better class of houses la Arkansas are completely bare. Tne few med icines that they get come overland from Texas or acrot* the river from the eastern half of the Confed eracy. There is no opportunity for getting a large stock on hand, particularly if it be tine that onr forces are in fall occupa tion of the month of the Bio Grande. Thera Is much sickness In the rebel army in conse quence of the recent hard marches, the scan ty clothing, and the lack ot medicines and medical attendance. There is an abundance of beef and com, but a great dearth of every thing else. The cattle on the thousand hills, mace famous in Jefi Thompson’s proclama tion, are not all gene yet. From Fort Smith we have a rumor that Cooper hsd appeared in front of Fort Glbsoa, and was threatening to attack it. This can k-ardlv be true/ as Cooper was far down on the Bed river, at last accounts, with his cemmaed almost completely broken up. If he should attempt to trouble Fort Gibson he would find Gen. McNeil moving from £ort Smith to cut him off, and bis offensive movements would be speedily changed to the defensive. Our communication with Fort Smith Is not reg ular, as that post reports direct to headquar ters at St Louis, by way of Springfield. As soon as the river rises we shall send boats there and to Fort Gibson with supplies. At present the Arkansas Is the lowest of the low. Pontiac, FEOM WASHINGTON; Tlie attempt to represent certain Hobel State* In Conjrre** Squelched—Tilo Coppebeadsand the Presidency—^.n- U-ttl&Tery Policy Abroad, [From onr Regular Correspondent] Washington, Nor. 18,1853. THE ATTEMPT TO ItETEESENT. CEETAIN ABDEL STATES SQUELCHED. It is known that attempts have been made to represent certain rebel States, from which the Confederate armies have been wholly or partially driven, in the present Congress. In Louisiana a sort of midnight arrangement was gotten up, the promoters of the scheme being about equally divided as to numbers between copperheads and oat end oat rebels. The thing was puffed up In the New Fork Herald and kindred sheets os a return of the citizens of the State to their allegiance, Jcc. But in reality the afiair was on attempt to get control of Congress, embarrass the Adminis tration and play into the hands ot the rebels. The attempt tidied, however, through want of material, not more than fifty persons all told beieg engaged in it iu Louisiana. So the pari of the programme so for as related to Louisiana fell still bom. Next Tre have Etheridge’s movements in Tennessee, looking la the same direction. The erratic coarse of this gentlemen in oppo sition to the stand taken by Gov. Andrew Johnson, can only be accounted tor on the supposition that he either an wittingly allow ed himself to be need by the rebels and their copperhead friends at the North, or that he really intended to throw himself knowingly into their bands. However this may be, I am happy to learn, that since the late elec tions in the Border States he has taken the back track, and will co operate to a greater extent, at least with the effort lof Gov. John son to restore Tenncaeee to the Union • thor oughly purged ot secerslonism and Its cause —slavery. The truth is that Mr. Etheridge and many other amiable gentlemen, aud old politicians, have vasclhted since the com mencement of the rebellion, as the can* 3 of the Confederates looked,hopeless,or cheering. They are residents of States In which it re quites a gfeateramount of moral courage to be a consistent Union man th&nmost people pos sess. Andy Johnson,or paliUcanslike nlm.krc exceedingly scarce: such men are not met with every day. Thanh God that Tennessee has to-day ench a fearless leader—a mm who is ready to sacriQce all his preconceived opin ions and social prejadices in order to ensure he salvation of the'eountry. Then we have the State of Arkansas and its Senator, Mr. Sebastian. He hasjbeen playing Lide-and seek daring this rebellion. To be rare he did not openly take np arms for the Confederates, but he, like many others, went with his State and section. He was a south ern man to southerners. It was indeed at one time pretended that he was hiding from the rebel authorities. However that may be, he was allowed to reside unmolested In the State. If he had been a thoroughly Union m&n it is not likely they would have permitted him to do this. Since the foil of the rebel stock In the market, however, it appears that Mr. Se bastian's Mends (cunning fox; he still pUys the double game—now you see and now yon don't,) have written on here to persons high in authority, asking if he may be alio w ed to take bis place in the Senate. And here the gentleman displays the cloven foot, not witnstandirg all ms cunning, for the would be Senator has no constituency. There Is no State Government from which to acredit him. There is no Secretary of State to give him his certificate; no Governor; no Legislature; no nothing. He could only represent a rebel government if any. and that would be riving them a representation in two distinctana hos tile governments—an anamoly unprecedented in the history ef the world. It would be somewhat like a politician in your Stats in the late Constitutional Convention thereof Be preferred to be ano party man, bat con trolled both of his colleagues, one of whom was a Republican and the other a Democrat Every night he thrust these colleagues ot his, like two dry sponges, one into the Democrat ic and the other into the Republican caucus, and drew them out next morning In aproper ly saturated condition. The result was that he was prepared to take advantage of all that occurred in both parties. We certainly don’t want to allow the rebel Government to play Ibis sortoi game upon the UniteiStates Con gress I lam clad to learn, that Mr, Sebas tian's friends were promptly informed from high quarters, as the newspapers phrase it, that he might as well etay where he was and continue to play his interesting gams of hide and-seek under difficulties, until the regener ation of Arkansas has been fully accomplished. So that the people may rest satisfied that none of these bogus State governments will have any representation in the present Con gress. And this fact settles the question as to the manner in which the States arc to bo re habilitated and re admitted into the Union. It can only be by the sure guaran tee of the re-establishnent of loyal govern ments and the extinguishing of the infernal enree of elavery, which has been the bane of our country and the cause of all our troubles. True penitence must bring forth works meet for the same; and what are more properly thoee but the put’ing away of the evil which was the c&uee of the transgression? THE COPPERHEADS AND THE PRESIDENCY. I leam that the contest in the copperhead organization respecting the Presidency con tinues,and excites considerable feeling among the leaders. Tbe McClellan men are very ac tive, and urge his claims principally on ac count of his supposed popularity with the army. The New York Herald is in their in terest, and its advocacy of au “on to Rich mond” war policy by tbe Democracy, is in pursuance of the plan of the friends of the General. One would think, howerer.tbat the experience of military men in the West, de feated upon copperhead tickets, would satis fy the followers of 1 'little Mac” that the game won’t win. On the other baud, the anti-Mc- Clellan men say there is nothing In him—that he puts his foot in it every time, as in the caseoftheWoodwordletter, <&c. They also say that if a war man must be run, it is better to take one in whom the people have some faith, and who has not a tainted political re cord to embarrass him. Then there are the genuine copperheads, who will not go a war man anyhow. They repudiate shoulder straps In toto, and will he satisfied with no candi date except he he of the Yallandigham school of politics. They might go Seymour at a pinch, hut even he has proved himself desti tute of pluck. He is considered to have let the golden opportunity pass when he refused to take sides openly against the war and the Government m his inaugural message. And so matters remain decidedly mixed among the wire pullers in the copperhead party. They place great hopes, however, upon a split in the Union ranks during the session of Con gress, and are prepared, hy all means in their power, to hring abont such a result. Ourpar ty must hear this constantly in mind, for it is the only rock ahead, providing all continues to go well with our armies in the field. OUB ANTI-SLAVERY POLICY AS IT EFFECTS US ABROAD. The effects ol our anti-elavery policy are mere and more developing themselves abroad, as well as at home. Henry Ward Beecher, the unofficial diplomatist, has done more than that unaccountable trio of Admin* istration Ambasadors—Bishop Mctlvaine, Bishop Hughes aodThurlow Weed. Bishop Mclivalne was well enough in his place, hut the other two gentlemen were about as use* fol in Europe as a fifth wheel would be to a mail-coach. In fact Bishop Hughes was a positive damage to us, both in Trance and England. lu the former he was hated by the Government, on account of his ultra moa talne sentiments; and for the same ciusa was the deadly enemy of all the liberal press, who are our only supporters in the latter country. He had the sympathy of the Empress, however, but bow much good that has doae us let the Mexican expedl’ion of which she, as well as her paper, La France, is known to be a warm supporter, answer. Bat sendingtbis man to Great Britain and Ireland, full of the bitterest feelings towards that country was a still greater fiasco. While there he spent his time maklrg speeches to the Irish, telling them that whichever side “ whipped” in oar con test, he would be found in support of the triumphant party or administration; so that in any event he would be able to aid Ms countrymen in overthrowing their oppres sors, the British! As what this country wanted was favorable British neutrality, this appears to me to have been aujlhiog bat the proper and sensible way to secure it. Bnt turning to Mr, Beecher, we fiud him to be the right man iu the right place, and Mr. Seward mutt now see that he would have dene more for our cause at the start than a thousand Weeds or Hughes 1 . Mr. Beecher happens to represent, or, at least, be in good odor with just that class in England who are the warn supporters of the Palmerston, or old whig mmietry—the Evangelical, or low church Episcopalians, the Congregatioaallsts, Methodists and other dissenters. They are,, In the main, uncompromisingly anti-slavery, and they have votes as .well as sympa thy to give. When . Mr. Beecher spoke to them, he spoke to. the con stituents of Palmerston and Russell. When ho bent them to his ylm, by the •nice cf his eloquence, he broke right lute the racks of the Government; in fact to 3k away the undcr-pinnUr that sustained the entire fabric of x tLe'AdminUtrAtioa. As is evident from bis' Auburn speech, Mr. Seward r<ow sees that he made one of those errors of bis life which have clang to him through all Ms career .with such retnark'bla tea acitv, .in ' deserting his’ own avow ed sentiments on the slavery quc&tija, when he declared to foreign governments that this war would be conducted entirely without reference to slavery. He tried to play the paitof Hamlet, with Hamlet left oat, ai l of course failed The proclamation of fredom rallied the anti slavery element of Esgbud to our support—the Cobdeus, Brights, Fors ters, Thompsons, Mill?, and hosts of others, while in France it caused the Government journals to declare that the government of the Emperor could not rccogair.e the South until slavery was at least placed U a gradual prccecs of extinction! FROM VICKSBURG. Gen. Logan’* Farewell to hie Com mand-Ala Bepemtre to a How ±*o ftltlon—SLUltary Matter*, dke. [Special Correspasdemce Chicago Tribune.] Yicr-ecro, Mibb., Not. 13,1563. In accordance with an order from the War Department, Major General John A.-Lagan to-day gave up hit old command, Third Dlvi -Bkn,l7th army corps. Brigadier General Leggett assuming command Since early this moniug he has been busy reviewing the dif ferent brigades. The First Brigade, General Leggett’s, stationed at Black Blver, was re viewed at eight o’clock; the Second, Gener al Force’s, at noon, on the parade ground by the river, and the Third, General Multby’s, at this camp, cast of the city. The regiments, though somewhat destitute in numbers, made a fine, appearance, marchisg splen didly. , The review over. General Logan addressed the soldiers and officers of the diflerent bri gade* in a few most apt, though brief, fire well remarks. He reminded them of the glo rious history this Third Division, of the 17ch army corps, had made for itself A history lobe pi ondof-a history never to be forgot ten ; for it is written aa with a pea of fire dipped in ink of blood on the memories and in the hearts of all. 'He besought them al ways to prove themselves as loyal in princi ple, as valiant in arms as their record while ntdtrhls command would show them to have been; to “remember the glorious cause you are fighting for, remember the bleaching bones cl your comrades killed on the bloody fields of Donelscn, Corinth,- Champion HiiL and Vicksburg, or perished by disease daring the past two years of hardships and exposure —and swear by these imperishable memories never, while life remains, to prove recreant to the trust High Heaven has confided to yonr charge.” He assurred them of his con tinued sympathy and interest in their well being,no matter hbw great a distance might Separate them; and closed by heartily recom mending them to their future commander, his own companion in arms, and successor Brigadier General Leggett. The occasion was to officers and men alike, one of solem nity and great interest. It was indeed a touching sight as these veteran soldiers formed in noiiow square, and listened with wrapt attention to the farewell words of their tried and gallant leader—to see the weather beaten cheek moistened, and the eye, that had looked calmly upon death in its every revolting form, swollen worse than children’s are, with the sad tear of regret at part- Gen. Logan leaves here to-morrow or the day after, to assume command of the 15th army corps, to wMch the order of the Secre tary of War ae-Igns him. Jfony sincere re grets will follow him from Vickiburg. Asa post commander, by his uncompromising fidelity and impartial Justice, he gained the esteem and admiration—if not of rebels cf ell loyal, well disposed citizens and soldiers. As a division commander, Napoleon could not have been more traeted and beloved by those under his command than Logan is to day by every man in the Third Division, not only that, bat in the 17th army corps. That Ms success in the new and more im portant nssiiion wpoa the duties of which he Is now about to enter, may equal if not sur pass his former brilliant achievements* is the universal hope and expectation. THE MOSXUE4L EID.YAF £>II*O CASE. The Arrest of Hon. J. IX. GldOlugs, The New York Evening Jbsf. prints the Iclloßlngvcraion of the Montreal kidnapping case, exculpating Mr. Giddlnga from any blame in the matter: Daring the July riots in this city two fel lows named Barke and Lewis were leaders of the mob on the western side of the town. They rode on horseback, levied black mun 0 n respectable citizens, and incited the nob to burn down houses on Broadway, and Twenty eighth and Twenty-ninth streets, and to cruelly use and burn black people. When the police appeared these scoundrels, of course, absconded, and were not be found. The police tclegraped a description of them to various cities, among others to Montreal. Redp&th. who was at the time or soon after wards in Montreal, passed publicly as Lewis, assumed tbat name, and was not known there by any other name. He bragged about the ?romlnent share he had taken in the New oikzlots. Burke was also at one time in Montreal, s The boasts of Lewis attracted the attention of the Montreal police, and detective Jones telegraphed to the Chief of Police In this city as follows: Hontheal, Oct. 29,1803. To the Police of New York; There are two men here of the name of Lewis ftcdJiorke, that were connected with the rlota In *,ew York. What shall Xdo with them ? Answer immediately. Thomas P. Jones, Detective Officer. The police department replied: “Hold them and we will get a requisition. They are wanted for murder and arson.” The same day Mr. Jones sent another tele gram, as follows: Montreal, Oct. 20,1563. I will arrest Lewis to-night, and we have Burke is toe morning. Say what time yoor offi cer left New Yerk with papers, so that I can meet T. P, Jones. On the following day, the 50th, Mr. Jones sent a third dispatch: Montreal, Oct. 30,1863. Bay If officer have started—what time—and what route he la taking, no tbatlcan meet him. Answer immediately. Very anxious. ... , T. P, Jones. And again, on the some day: Montreal, Oct. 30, 1863. I will bring Lewis on to morrow. Burke fr ** kit Moutzeal, and will return in week. T. P. Jones. • It will be seen that Detective Jones was much excited. He telegraphed so many times, and acted so precipitately, that it was impossible to reach film in time with Instruc tions from the New York office. He did not wait for any answer to hia numerous dis patches ; and if he gets into trouble it la his own emit. For, on receipt of -his telegram of the 50th, Mr. Kennedy * replied by tele graph—on the same day: •* We want Burke, there la no indictment against Lewis.” Unluckily, through a breakdown of the line, the dispatch failed to reach MontrsaL It was returned to the police on the 2d of November, with the endorsement: “Will send a copy to catch Jones at Rutland.” On the 2d of November Jones telegraphed iiom Burlington as follows: Burlington, Nov. 2,1863. I have Lewis atßorlington. I shall leave here at 8:25 a, m. Shall arrive m New York at 6p. m. * T. P. Jokes. The next dispatch was datedat Eagleßriige Eagle Bridge, Nov. 3,1863. a Mcctme at thoDey Street House at 9p.m. con tain, T, P. Jones. 'When he got to the city with Redpath, Ser geant Young took the latter in charge, until he, Redpatn, elms Lewis, could consult with .his counsel. After this consultation, Red path voluntarily and without,the requestor the police authorities produced a'written cer tificate, signed by himself, to say that he hod voluntarily accompanied the officer Joses, from Montreal to this city. Hereupon he was released. 1 Subsequently it was discovered that he hod formerly resided in this city; and that a charge of perjury was pending against him in Staten Island. Officers came up to arrest him, but unfortunately too late. It Is report ed that he is a man unfavorably known to the police of this city in a number of ways. Before bur friends in Montreal waste their sympathies on this fellow they will do well to inquire into his charge ter and antecedents. There is little doubt, from what we hear, that Redpath alias Lewis attempted a regular con fidence swindle upon the police, with the hope to get up a suit for damages and get money of some one. He will not succeed! It Is clear, from the facta wo have told, that neither Mr. Giddings nor the police au thorities of New York were to blame; but that the foolish zeal of the Canadian detec tive brought abont the circumstances which are making talk in Montreal.
