TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1. 1803.
FIGHT XT OFT.
How the rebels shall fill their stomachs
and cover their hacks is fast beginning to
he a question of paramount importance,
l-oih with the deluded masses who suffer
individually, and with the leaders at Rich
mond who look upon the increasing penu
ry as a powerful auxiliary against them.
Men cannot fight with empty stomachs,
whatever may be the prize to he won, nor
make bayonet charges in their nether gar
ments. A warm coat and a hearty dinner
are important adjuncts in the prosecution
of war. The intercepted letters all tell the
same stoiy. The deserters reiterate it, and
the .terrible starvation of Union soldiers
adds to the trutli, and the fact itself that
the rebel authorities are now receiving Fed
eral rations for their prisoners is an unwill
ing self-confirmation of the report.
The rebel President, his Congress, his
Generals, his Governors, and all in
authority under him are cogitating deeply
upon the subjects, but see no way of es
cape. The women of Mobile and Rich
mond, in the desperation of hanger, go
rioting through the streets and plunder the
bakeries and commissary stores. Prices
arc up to the starvation point The chiv
ahy drink their whisky at fifty dollars per
gallon, and the poor man looks in vain at
flour at one hundred and twenty dollars
per barrel The growing dearth of ne
groes adds to the alarm,: Witk each fresh
advance of the Federal bayonets, down
goes another fragment of the fabric of ela-
Tcry and another proportion of land lies
idle and-xmcultivalod.' The blockade cuts
off the avenues from abroad, and the land
ing of Banks in Texas gives a gloomy look
lo the beef prospects.
This is a cheering sign for the Union
cause.. The large stockof patriotism laid in
at the outbreak of the rebellion will avail
little now that the flour barrels are getting
empty and Sambo has laid down bis shovel
and Ids hoe. The fire which has been kin
dled inthe Southern heart bids fair to smoul
der ingrey ashes, and by the some sign
the Union army presses on with renewed
energy.
But there is danger that we may attempt
to put down the rebellion by the starring
process, or needlessly delay active opera
tions, indulging the faUadons hope that
the rebels will lay down their arms im
pelled to adc for'peace through the crav
ings of empty stomachs. He who expects
to see a single, rebel drop his Enfield, lie
down upon his back, fold his arms upon
his breast, take a last fond look at the.
Southern cross and die without a morsel of
hog or hominy in his rebellious stomach,
and be who expects to see a single rebel
come into.our lines and offer to compro
mise oh the platform of pork and hard
tack, win be most wofhlly disappointed.
TVc have got to fight put this rebellion
with hard knocks, and plenty of them.
Iron, cold steel and lead arc the moral
agendes which will convert the Southern
Saracens to their allegiance to the stars
and stripes, and as soon as they are admin
istered in convincing allopathic doses,
go soon the rebds wHI cry, “Hold,
enough I” There must be no letting up.
Give them Missionary Ridge, Lookout
Mountain, Gettysburg and Vicksburg as
often as posable. They understand that
sort of treatment at the hands of our blue
cc:;ted doctors, and it is not in human
nature to desire many repetitions of such
victories. Therefore,keep on bittingthenL
Like the Milesian at Donnybrook, where
ever a head appears hit it, .and hit It so it
will crack. Bo not depend jopon Jean
larders or empty flour barrels as .the instru
ments wherewith to crush out treason. It
runs in the blood, and the whole system
must be cleansed withthepurgatirc of war.
That is the way to cure the disease. The
remedy is simple. VTe have it in our
hands. Administer it thoroughly, and the
rotten Confederacy will soon go to the
dogs.
SOW A DISASTER WAS AVEBTED
The attempt of the afternoon paper, to
show that tbe Teibuke was wrong in Its
, criticism of Halleck’s policy of dividing our
armies, is completely answered by an item
in an adjoining column, which on witting
ly lets the cat out of the bag, and bears
ample testimony to the extreme peril in
which our army was placed. The item
reads as follows;
OEK. ennauv'e hasty xascr to oxattanoooa.
TbeTlckabotßansyof Gen, Sherman, which, by
a rapid inarch from Eastport, in Northern Missis
sippi, where it abandoned the Memphis & Charles
ton Balltoad, to Chattanooga, enabled Gen. Grant,
C t the “*»ki of time," to set on foot the great
f noeement trAkft hat resulted in driving Jtragg'e
yvbel arriiyfrdm the front of our ttronghotd there ,
forcing U to teat a hotly retreat Sooth, accom
plished one qf.lhe most remarkable 'feats in the
7ii*(oryqf army marches. Its course, for tbe most
part, laid through the enemy V country, and “ went
through a kiting,” as a correspondent remarks.
Bow this army, was subsisted and poshed along
daring Its rapid march, is thus described: '
“Avery limited amount of supplies was brought
by wagon, bat tbe whole country for mile? on cither
flank was despoiled of every article of food, and
every pound of forage. Tbe citizens vert sorely
pnasedforthc necessities of life, but the safety
and sustenance of armies was balanced against
this fact, and the beam swung In favor of spolia
tion. A hungry amv is blind to results, deaf to
entreaties, ana m its track stalks hunger and desti
tution. • \
“AH animals capable of earning a soldier, his
pun and blanket, were pressed into the servlet;
and almost the whole command consequently came
mounted, finch rigs yon never saw before. Some
had strapped a blanket around tbe trail, haggard
flames of hanger-pinched horses, and came plod
ding leisurely (Dong, looking like the fit followers
of the Knight de la Mancha after an arduous And
fruitless adventurer.
This remarkable forced march of General
Sherman’s twenty-five or thirty thousand
veterans saved Gen. Grant’s and Burnside’s
armies from the frightful. danger to .which
Halleck’s Blundering strategy had exposed
them. ■ "Without Sherman’s corps, Grant
was not strong enough to attack and rout
the army of Bragg on his front If he de
tached a column sufficient for the relief of
Burnside he would so weaken his own force
Ihat Bragg would be able to fell on and
drive him out “<& Chattanooga. General
Sherman was the Bludier that came up in
the “ nick of lime ” and “ enabled Grant to
91 set on foot the great movement which
“ has resulted in driving Bragg’s rebel ar
" my from its stronghold, and forcing it to
** beat a hasty" retreat South,”—we qnote
the worda of «nrxidghbor- vWhen wo were
depicting the terrible perilin which Hal
leck had placed our brave soldiers and cur
holy cause, by his_policy of scattering and
dividing our forces, of -course we did not
know—neither, did he,_for that matter, of
the amnririg march' Sherman’s .grand corps
was making to snatch the army from the
jaws of We knew thnt Sher
man’s troops were moving towards Ohatta- •
nooga, but did not dare to calculate on their
arrival so soon by a fortnight
It was truly on extraordinary march, but
Gen. Sherman saw that it was necessary to
“ go through kiting” to rescue Burnside,
and enable Grant to strike a blowatßragg’s
army. It was ““ neck or nothing,” but ce
lerity, endurance, and courage combined,
soved our cause from a disaster that makes
one shudder to contanplate. To Sherman
and his Bcn-hcartcd veterans belong the
honor of convertinga frightful danger into
a Waterloo; triumph. All we said of Hal-
Icck and Ids had policy, of scattering our
forces is substantiated, and all we have said
in favor of iHe policy of concentration of
our armies, and of striking great blows at
vital points, is illustrated by what Rose
cran’s old army, strengthened by Hooker’s
and Sherman’s corps, ]ms just achieved
The present forward movement of Meade

“cone TO no.»
It seems to be a great pleasure to most
people to anticipate the events they desire,
and within limits it Is a vciy universal
thing. But one may do too much of it;
and those who undertake it for others, or
the public, are in especial danger of over
doing 1C Ever since this war began, the
telegraph, aided by a class of newspapers
and thdr correspondents,' have been at a
gioat deal of pains to tell us what waa
going to. happen at this or that theatre of
the war, and with this or that command
in the army. “A great battle win be
fevght to-morrow;’ ’ or, “A severe fight
ij inevitable; or, “righting is now
going on,” are formnJas as well known
lo the people as anold sign-board, which
has swung in the wind for twenty ■ years
and whose every creak laris well known to
c-ch village boy ,as the bark of his own
Cog. 'What has not that Potomac army
been going to do, this two and a half
y* are? -flow long have we been promised
an entry into Charleston, by such or such
a time at Ihrthestf In the early stages of
ibewar, ft was the custom not only to
promise us battles, but victories. The
event of each predicted encounter was all
cut and dried, and read off, as if the au
thors had been granted a'perusal of that
“ book effete,” ofwhich'we haveallhcard.
We should “ dean them out;” we were to
give them a “ sure drubbing;” there would
be a peat’ “foot race,”' etc!, etc.
For .tome reason/this sort of thing
has been left "off somewhat of late;
whether that “ Fortune was fickle,”
or that we have got to be so sure of vic
tory each time that ft is needless to men
tion it, and all that needs to be done is to
premise the battle—the event being in,no
danger of filling—or whatever the reason
may be, we are spared so much, and It is a
great rdieC For, be assured, O telegraph
ists and correspondents, we do not want to
be too certain beforehand; we want to be
in a little doubt, sometimes. Otherwise,
what zest in readings, what indtement to
effort and endeavorf 'Doubt, fear, uncer
tainty—do they not prepare. ustoenjoyvic
toryf Thanks, then, to our informers, that
they, do not-make us too certain before
hand, every time. But we can endure
■ being told that we are going to
fight, here and there—especially that the
Potomac army-will “ advance;” or that the
t rebels arc to be taken fully in hand at
!Charleston without more delay; because
we domot imagine , that it does the least
barm. It is as innocent as the prediction
of the weather in a ten years 1 old almanac.
Nobody that we have ever heard of, puts
the leak faith in it Everybody reads it,
as they were accustomed to read old fath
er Ritchie’s paper at Washington years"
ago, backwards. When be affirmed that
a ‘thing was sure tohappeh, al] people knew
it would’nl happen. When be denied that
an event could by posibilily transpire, all
the world looked to see it come about by
tbe nest day. So, when we are told
that Meade is to move on to Rich
mond, we fed at case for the next
three weeks. When we have got
ready for the" taking of Charleston
in three days, it is certain that no, powder
trill he burned in that region till the moon
changes, nor need onr informers take the
least trouble to excuse the delay. Of course
a gun will burst in Fort Gregg, or Dahl
gren will not stir; of a rain will cover all Vir
ginia with mud, or a train will fail to come
up, or a bridge must be hnllt first, of course!
Ron’t trouble yourselves, gentlemen, we
know ft all before band.
GOV, SBIISOVB AND NBGBO SOL
DIERS.
At last Gov. Seymour of New York has
assented to, and will forward tbe enlik
ment of negro troops in the State of New
York. It is expected that a regiment will
be filled up speedily, and put into the field.
The Secretary of War has given authority
to Gen. Bpinolato raise a colored regiment
in that State. They are to receive the same
bounties from the State funds as arepaid to
white volunteers. The Secretary of War
promises to recommend to * Congress to
have the law so amended that colored
troops shall receive the same pay and boun
ty as whites, and there is no doubt that the
amendment will be promptly made.
It is not long since that Gov. Seymour
gave a surly negative to an application for
permission to raise a colored regiment in
New York; but be has progressed since
then, and has became more radical The
October and November elections opened
bis cyes,removed considerable copper from
bis understanding, and greatly improved
bis loyalty. Tbe man who in Joly called
the rioters and negro-burners “bis
friends,” now consents to tbe enlisting of
negro soldiers and - giving them tbe same
* State bounty that is paid to white volun
teers. Verily, the world does move.
Eg* The Judicial Election in California
last mouth seems to have gone by default.
The Union nominees were chosen, of course.
At Sacramento, the total vote, on 3d Septem
• tember, was 2,805; on 21st October, the vote
was only 1,018. At Marysville the vote of
September was 1,243; in October It was 099.
At Stockton, the vote of September was
1,180; in October it was 815. Tbe Union ma
jority iu Sacramento is 1,173; in Stockton,
001; in Marysville, 523.
ST' Gen. Charles Clark, recently elected,
was inaugurated Governor of Mississippi on
ti c IGUi Inst. ■ He urges the vigorous prose
cution of measures for the defence of the
State, and says that sooner than submit to the
fotygbould'the amybecome exhausted, the
women, children, find old men trill, like tbe
remnant of Pascagoula, join hands and march
iuto tbe sea. We hope the order will soon
be given; “Forward, march.”
, At the recent election for Governor of
Georgia, the contest was vety spirited, a de
termined attempt being made to defeat Gov.
Brown. The vote.shows that Brown had
Sf’,ssß; Hill, 18,122; Furlow, 10,031—total
vote, 64,701. For President the total vote
was 106,865; so there has been a falling off of
nearly 43,600, on nearly 40 per cent*

Bmttii of. Emancipation*
The editor vf the Nashville Union, writing
ficni Washington, gives • the following In re
spect to the riffllts'of emancipation in the
District of Columbia;
. Many of. our friends in Tennessee are ask
ing, with much solicitude, what shall we do
with tbe slaves when liberated* Let the give
tic substance of conversations which I have,
laid with Bcrcral late slaveholders, who reside
in this District, and alter ..an experience' of
negro freedom for ever' tVo years, thus bear
uetimony in this important ease.- I inquired
of these, gentlemen; all 'of high social posi
tion,as follows i. • . \
“ what has been tbe general effect of eman
cipoting the slaves In this District*
“DeSdedly beneficial to borii •
ybn~snffered any considerable social
convulsion-in consequence?”; \ ,
' “ None at all; matters have progressed as
smoothly as ever.”
. Are the negroes insolent and lawless
“Nut eoxnnch so as formerly. They feel
that they are now standing oh their good be
havior alone.*’ - . . - - , - . - .*
“Have you much-trouble in procuring la
borers?” /
“None at all; the negroes work' readily
r.r.d faithfully for wages; They do their work
better than even' because they, know that
they must either ftilflll their contracts or get
tbe people regret th/ change which
(mancipation hascffccted?” - • ,
“No, hardly one man in the whole District
except a few politicians; would vote for the
restoration of slavery. Mr. and Mr.
-—, who were both large slaveowners, and
opposed emancipation bitterly, now declare
openly that they never want to sec slavcrv
restored.”
Certainly this evidence Is important, and
worth the consideration of Tennesseeans.
Let us act honestly toward the slaves, and
ri.cn the consequences will take care of them
selves. Let ns offer “greenbacks”
of cowhides to the negro, and he will work
with fresh alacrity and hope. He has a soul;
let ns trust him accordingly. - If we use our
numerical superiority to rob him of bis nat
ural rights and defraud him of his wages, we
will pull down upon onr own heads and the
heads of our children the just penalty of dor
guilt, amid the mercUess tempests of a social
revolution. - '

The weather Is warm and rainy, and the
river is slowly rising, and will bring with it
from above abundance of those valuable
gems which help to make glad the hearts
of the poor—help the manufacturer to realize
his thrifty profits, and enable the swift steam
er to plow her way through the waters of the
Mississippi to far-off Southern climes, carry
ing - her stores to the sick and suffering sol
dier, or to the refugee driven into our lines
to receive the hospitalities denied to him by
the cruelties ofdvfl war-and oppression.
Tee, the coal famine is at an end," and the
can now be obtained in such
sufficient quantities and such reasonable rates
as to satisfy the wants of the suffering poor*
which the various charitable associations are
at the present time busily engaged in.
I Hie trial of fraudulent Government con
tractors is still in session,*and already Charles
W. Hall and £« A Smith, horse dealers and
contractors, have been found guilty of fraud
and sentenced to* a fine of SIO,OOO each, to
which is added Imprisonment for six months.
There are some ten more cases under investi
gation. The case of Mr. Harbin, horse In
spector, wfll- come off to-day. The trial of
Captain F, W. Hurtt will take place on the
first day of December, under court marMfli, 0 f
which Major General Hartsuff will be Presi
dent Both of these courts will be conducted
with scrupulous care and justice, and the
public may rest assured that all contractors
who are found guilty of taking more than
their share of the spoils, will beforced to dis
gorge liberally. Already, over $50,000 have
been thus returned to the Government by the
labors of Major H. L. Burnett, the efficient
Judge Advocate of the. Department within
tbe last two months. Instances of cxem
plaiy punishment like these wilThave a salu
tary effect and have a tendency to check tbe
temble fraud and profligacy In connection
with furnishing army supplies and ammuni
tion; which have largely increased the ex
penses of the war, ana which are a national
scandal and reproach.
I will cite one of these Instances of fraud
which has not yet come to tbe knowledge of
the Government, bat I trust that its recital
will draw the attention of our officers to the
case In point About the middle of October
a lady friend of the writer’s, who left Mem
phis on the steamer Jewess for Cincinnati,
told me that there come a passenger on the
same boat, a gentleman who bad keen a sol
dier in Hindman’s Arkansas (rebel) Brigade,
that he was conscripted and forced into the
army against his wishes, bat ran away the
first chance he had, got inside oor lines and
took the path to the old flag. This man
stated that about eighteen months ago, when
Hindman was back oPHelcna, and onr troops
under General Gorman were stationed there,
a Government' clothing contractor, with a
large quantity of overcoats, blouses and
punts, came out, and instead of delivering
them to our troops, got within the rebel
lines and " sold them *at huge profits
to the rebels, and three of. Hind
man’s regiments were clothed with them
The contractor made Ws escape, and it was.
given out that the rebels had captured the
clothing, and so published iu some of our pa-
Si rs at the time. This passenger Is now in
hillicotbc, Ohio,bnt the lady did not remem
ber bis name. It however can be found on
the books of the steamer Jewess, which runs
between this city and Memphis. If this con
tractor could be caught it would bo well to
moke a speedy example of him. This Is.how
ever, only one case-in a thousand, but u the
government will only take hold of these coses
promptly, inflicting tbe severest penalties,
there will be no more robbing of the poor
soldiers by rascally contractors.
The losses at the late fire of Miles Green
wood’s establishment, on Walnut strect,bave
proved to be much less than was at first an
ticipated, and will not probably amount to
over $50,000. Tbe books and papers were all
saved, and work will be resumed at as early
a date as possible. A portion of the engine
work of the new iron clad gunboat, nowin
process of construction, was somewhot dam
aged by water, but it can shortly be repaired.
About 100 workmen will be thrown out of
employment for several weeks, but we learn
that Stir. Greenwood has liberally provided for
their families and will retain them in his cm
now gunboats building by the Niles I
Manufacturing • Company, arc rapidly ap
proaching completion. They are to be iron
clads, and turreted, and carry two 11-inch
guns. They ore as strong as thick oak timber
auff wrought iron can make them, and wUI
compare favorably with any of the Eastern
built monitors, In point of strength and beau
ty of model A large force is kept constantly
at work npon them, and tbe public arc not
allowed as formerly to visit them. • They will
probably bo finished the let of March, and
will without doubt be the best built vessels
of the Western navy. A number of stern
wheel boats are being extemporized into gun
boats, or tin-clads as the naval men call them.
Cincinnati has got to be .quite a naval depot,
and immense quantities of naval stores and
Erovisione arc purchased here. Since Decern
cr, 1863, twenty-one gunboats have been re
built and fitted out, including the iron-clad
Indlanola, and three iron-clods and six other
gun-boats are now constructing for Admiral
Porter’s fleet ; . .
The recruiting rendezvous, under charge of
that efficient officer. Acting Master Bowen,
has sent oat 1,800 enlisted seamen, and over
SCO petty officers, for the Mississippi squad
ron, all of whom have been obtained within
a year. Mr. Bowen is well known to Illinois
ans, and formerly lived at Peoria. He is a
very dilligent, efficient officer, and gives his
whole time and energies to the service, is be
loved by. all who know him; and certainly de
serves promotion for his valuable services as
a recruiting officer. Lieut Comd’g K. R.
Eree&e, has now supervision over naval af
faire in Cincinnati, and is a very gentlemanly
and business-like man
,The great Western Sanitary Fair, which will
he held daring the approaching holidays,
. promises to be a “ big thing,” though I hard-
Jy.think the citizens of Porkopolis can vie with
ILeir Chicago neighbors. The buildings used
v. ill be as follows: A magnificent hall will be
erected on Fifth strect-Markct Place, the sire
of which will be 400 feet long by 60 feet wide
—the whole of Filth street market building—
Mozart ’ Hall—all the available rooms of the
Catholic Institute—Greenwood Hall—the
Concert Boom of Pike’s Opera Honse and the
Palace Garden an Vine street, besides which
ladles’ dining rooms have been obtained on
Fourth street, oyposlte ShlUetto’s dry goods
palace, from which a back entrance leads di
rectly into Palace Garden, one of the promt
n(nl*Falr buildings. . There .willbe various
departments represented in the way of agri
culture, horticulture, mechanics, textile fab
rics, fine arts, music, amusements of all kinds,
in fact everything to attract the eye and open
.the purse strings. The ladies of Kentucky
are to have, a- . department—the -Ger
man and French ladies arc to be represented,
and the children of the city are to have a de
partment of their own,*j>lanned, executed
and carried out by them. There will be a
-department of trophies, snperintendedby the.
Invalid-Corps.' In ‘one place' there will be*
lectures and prayers, alter which collections
will be taken up; in another place, exhibi
tions of various kinds. .There will.be dan-.
clng each .evening for those who dance, :
and who are willing to pay the fiddler for
this great charitable occasion. There will'
be amusements for the grave and for the gay,
and each one who participates pays his snare,
-whether It is for the lecture or for the dance,
or for* amusements, or for good things to
cat, or for nlc-nacs to throw away. It makes
no for all the money thus obtained
.goes for a charitable object. It will, ho doubt,
be a great success, as the names and standing
of the committees are a sufficient guarantee
that all the arrangements will be carried out

Since the return of the 2d division of cav

iu which many of the horses were rendered
unserviceable by forced marches for about
two weeks, ,Gcn. Crook has been energetical
ly engaged In placing his command again In
condition for any service that may be re

horses have been obtained and distributed to
-the several regiments, and the dirisionlsnow
in excellent condition.
Since it has been in this region, the division
has obtained a huge amount of corn, which
hod been raised by the secesb planters in an
ticipation of supplying the rebel army, bnt
which has been devoted to a better purpose
In feeding the horses of the Federal cavalrv.
Foraging trains have been sent ont daily, and
the entire subsistence for our horses has been
obtained in this manner. .
Besides the foraging operations of the di

have been constantly moving over the coun

brigade, commanding the division durihe the
temjwrory absence of-Gen. Crook, and con
aiated of -detachments from the sth lown ...
airy. 4th JJ B revelry, and Hlh aad
ana mounted intontry, In all four hundred
men, under the command of Major J Moiri. •
Xoung,ofth« Olh lowa, One object ft?
expedition was to broik up a band of the
rebels reported to have their rendezvous
near the mouth of Limestone creek, and who
hare been scouring'the country, getting
horses, mules, cattle, wheat and other sup
plies, and takingtthezn across the Tennessee
river at Decatur. Another was to destroy
the boats which they need in crossing at dif
ferent points between Whitcsbuig and De
eulur, as well as to destroy or disable a large
saw and grist mOl on Limestone creek,
which was being used by the rebels for grind
ing com and wheat for their commissariat, as
well as in sawing out lumber for boats.
Starting' early on the morning of the 14th,
the expedition marched by a circuitous road
across the mountains, avoiding the main road,
and arrived at Whitesbuig, on the Tennessee
River, twelve mQcs from Huntsville, about
4 o’clock in the evening, where a ferry boat
was captured with a drove of hogs, which
were avont to be taken across- the river for
the use of the rebels. Two rebel soldiers
were taken prisoners, one of them after a
lively chase of several miles. Learning that
an island'about a mile above Whites burg,
was used by, the rebels as a place for secreting
stock collected through the. country. Major
Toung sent. Lieut McCammant of the sth
lowa cavalry, with a detail of men, to that
place, using the captnred ferry boat to gain
access to . the Island. Twenty-five head of
horses and mules, in good condition, having
been fed on the growth of canc on the island,
were captured'and secured, and the party
returned to the command at Whitcsfaurg
about midnight *
• • At Watkins’ Ferry, a mile below Triana. a
flatboat was crossing the river when tne
advance arrived, but put back to' the other
side. A wagon, with a number of tranks and
boxes was captured at the landing. An inci
dent occurred hero which Illustrates the
“chivalry”, of the rebel soldiers; and the
tenacity of the rebel ladies in pursuit of their
rights. A short time after the capture of the
baggage—the command being halted a short*
r distance above the ferry—a vehicle," appa
rently an* ambulance bearing a white flag, and
escorted by several soldiers, made Us appear
ance on the opposite side of the* river, and
I the party in it made signals which were
* understood as indicating a desire to commu
nicate with the command. On closer
approach, the occupants of the,. carriage"
: appeared to bo females. Supposing them to
. bo in oomc dlatrooe, or having la charge some
'sick or wounded, Major long decided to
communicate with them, and accordingly sent
a email party in a boat, also bearing a white
flag.. As they approached the shore, the ladles
came down the bank to meet them, wben the
cowardly scoundrels of rebels fired upon our
men, endangering also the safety of the ladies.
No one was mt, however, and the* men hav
ing landed, drove the miscreants from the
bank. A party in another boat, sent' to sup
port the first, also landed, but the chivalnc
rebels had fled to escape tlio consequences of
their cowardly act The carriage, with the
ladies, was brought over, and the party proved
to be the wife of Gen. Claiborne,' and three
other ladies, wives of rebel officers, all of
whom bad recently been sent from Nashville
to the rebel lines with orders not to return.
The captnred baggage belonged to them, and
they had come under the protection or the
flag of trace for the purpose of obtaining it
The tranks were proj>erly sealed and marked,
and after an examination, all appearing right,
they were delivered up to the fair
rebels. This much being gained, they found a
new cause of distress. Some of the soldiers
having discovered in the carriage a bottle of
wine, a cold turkey and some other articles
tempting to the appetites of hungry men, had
been ungallant enough to appropriate them to
their own use, whereupon the ladies became
highly indignant at this new violation of their
rights, bntlaOing to regain the missing arti
cles in that way, plead eloquently and pa
thetically to have them restored. * Bnt how
ever much the Mayor might have desired to
display his gallantry towards the lair ones in
distress, it was out of his power to aid them
in this case, os the viands were all “done
gone.” "
WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENCE.
Important Increase In Duties—Prohib
ition of Export of Com—Estimates
or Expenditures—Tho Blair Pamph-
Siucc my letter of Tuesday I learn of an In
crease of 80 per cent, on the present duties
on tobacco. In fact it will be necessary to
raise the duties on all such articles of luxury,
including spirits, in order to meet tbo ordi
nary expenses of the Government and pay
the interest on the debt, which will reach
over sixty millions of dollars la gold in a
year from date, at a reasonable calculation.
But this IS a comparatively small amount af
ter all, considering the great resources of the
country.
. 1 also learn that the exportation of com
from Missouri and the southern part of DU
ifiois has been (or is about to be; prohibited
by the military authorities; on account of the
necessity of the army and the great rise
which has taken place in the price of grain
in the West
i Mr. Chase will try and keop his estimates
of the expenditures fbr tbo ensuing fiscal
Sear below seven hundred and fifty millions
possible. He had hoped to keep them be
low seven hundred millions, but it is be
lieved they will necessarily reach the other
figure.
THE PRESIDENT AND THE BLAIR PAMPHLET,
* The President, day before yesterday sent
for a copy of tbe pamphlet published by Mr,
Blair, it is entitled “A speech delivered by
Hon. Montgomery Clair. Postmaster Gene
ral, In defence of. the policy of the President
of tbe United States, and In opposition to the
efforts of the ultra Abolitionists to blot out
the Southern States and receive them back
only as territories of the Union.”' Mr. Lin
coln is very much mortified at the publication
of this paznphlet,and tbe manner In which Hr.
Blair has chosen to rive It to the people, and
so expressed himself Mr. Lincoln has ex
pressed no views upon the subject of the se
ceded States, and Hr. Blair Is not authorized
to speak for or commit him to any line of
policy, on the subject. Hr. Lincoln keeps
his own council, especially with regard to all
matters of future policy as regards political
matters. TVhcn _ any ’one or the seceded
States, In a proper and legal manner asks for
reudmlssion into the Union,' Mr. Lincoln
th inks it will be time enough to take positive
ground upon the question. No one seceded
State has as yet asked for rcadmlssion, nor is
likely to for some time.
NEW TREASURY AGENT FOR TEXAS.
I learn that a new Treasury Agent been
appointed by Mr. Chase, forxexas, with
powers similar to those of Hr. Mcllcn, at
Cincinnati. Humor has it that a prominent
citizen of Milwaukee, and formerly otNew
Y ork State, is the fortunate man: Zeta.-
' [SpedalDlspatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Communications arc sold to be interrupted
between Washington and Meade’s army. At
any rate, the customary dispatches have not
been received yet to-day. There Is a story
that workmen, ore busy taking up the rails
from the railroad this side of Culpepper but
tt Is hardly creditable.
It is undcretood thai the rolling stock of
the road has all been sent back to Alexandria,
for the reason that Meade -wanted the men
who were guarding It, and so to get them,
sent the rolling stock where it would need
no guard.
THE CONFISCATION ACT.
The conviction that the amendatory clause.
- limiting the operation of the confiscation bill
forfeiture forlifeofthe estate of rebels, is an
addition not called for by any Just Interpreta
tion of tbe Constitution, and practically nul
lifying the bill, will, as supposed, lead to a
movement for its repeal early in the approach
ing session. Some believe that tbe President
vs ill now give his sanction to this, thoughlast
session he demanded and secured the passage
of this amendatory resolution against the
wish of a huge majority of bom houses.
JmlgeUndcrwood’s decision confiscating rebel
property, in fee simple, is likely to be soon
brought before the Supreme Court for confir
mation or reversal. ‘
It is'etated again that a French fleet is soon
to go to James' Blvcr to get tobacco that was
bought by tbe French Government before
the rebellion, concerning which so much has
been said.. .
There is a report that Count Mercler re
cently .went to Kichmond again.

The work yesterday was only preliminary
for to-day, if the enemy meanfight.*- ?
It can certainly do no harm now to recapit
ulate the movements of this armyfor the last
forty-eight hours, which place it in position
ready for any emergencyr ;
The army was under orders to march last
Tuesday, but on unfortunate'rain storm the
night before- rendering the roads next to im
passible, caused a postponement of the day
for marching.
On Tuesday the storm ceased, and* on
Wednesday a stiff breeze and an unclouded
sun aided materially; in drying the roads.
Thursday, our orders having been issued the
nigbt before, tho whole army was ia mo
tion. The Ist. and sth corps moved to
Culpepper Ford. a short distance
below Germania Hills. The 3d corps to Ger
mania Ford, followed by the Cth corps os sup
port. The 3d* corps went to Jacob Milrs
Ford, two and a half miles above Germania.
Kilpatrick’s cavalry, now under Custer, pro
tected the upper ford to prevent any attempt
to make a flank movement, or attack our
rear. Gregg’s cavalir division moved on the
left flank and Buford’s on tho right. From
tho unusual amount of preparation the ene
my had made, by throwing up earthworks,
and digging rifle pits at the principal place of
crossing, a strong resistance to the passage of
the Rapidan was expected. In this all were
disappointed. The eucmv’B pickets fell back
almost without firing a shot The river was
reached early in tho day, Thursday, and find
ing that tho enemy had evacuated the .places,
the troops commenced crossing at once.-
Thnreday night troops, wagon trams and ar
tillery were crossing the river. A sufficient
force was thrown .forward Thursday after
noon on the Germania plank road to cover
the front Friday morning the sth corps and
Ist corps moved from near the river up tho
Germania plonk road, Gregg’s cavalry ad
vancing, driving the enemy’s cavalry back
to Oakwood at this point and one mile be
yond. The enemy made considerable resist
ance, both sides having out strong skirmish
lines.
Charge upon charge was made on both
sides by the skirmish line. The enemy were
Invariably repulsed, and finally, introduced
a line of infantiy skirmishers; to repci a
charge. We followed it up promptly by a
counter movement with infantry, and for a
few moments they forced our line back, but
were finally repulsed by a vigorous Arc open
ed upon them from the Cth N. Y. Independent
battery,Capt Mart In. The Ist brigade ofGregg’s
cavalry division, under command of CoL Tay
lor, did the heaviest part of this work. This
brigade is composed of the following 1 regi
ments: Sd Pennsylvania cavalry, Ist Pennsyl
vania cavalry, Ist, New Jersey cavalry, Ist
Massachusetts cavalry, Ist Rhode Island cav
alry. At Oakwood, companies K and -I,
Capts. Wright and Walsh, of the 8d Pennsyl
vaula cavalry,had the advance, and behaved In
the most gallant manner. The left wing lost
night was two miles south of Hope Meeting
Bouse or Oakwood, and twelve miles from
Germania, on the plank road leading from
Fredericksburg to Orange Court House. Just
as the rebel infantry was exposed so unex
pectedly to repel a charge of the skirmish
line, as above recorded; the advance of the
sth corps came Into position very opportu
nely, throwing out a strong skirmish line.
The enemy opened with a heavy fire of artil
lery upon it, which was responded to lu a
similar manner from our side, oud for an
boor quite a brisk cannonading was kept np
on both sides. In one. of the charges made
• by the cavalry twenty-four prisoners were ta
ken. As the train of the sth corps was turn
ing from the back pike into the plank-road, a
fire was suddenly opened upon it from a con
cealed foe, when one man was killed and sev
eral, mules. The enemy were speedily dis
posed of by a detachment- senfc out from the
sth corps for the purpose. . Haring crossed
Germania Ford, the 2d corps yesterday took
the first road to tho right, which
wos the Orange Court House pike. But lit
tle distance hod been made before the enemy’s
pickets were encountered and a lively sldr
mlsh 'was kept up to beyond Robertson’s
tavern. Here the enemy brought forward
their infantry, and for. two hours there was
heavy skirmishing and considerable artillery
practice until it was quite dork, next on
the right of the 2d Is the 3d and then again
the GtH corps. The 3d bad considerable skir
mishing in front, and at one time a general
. engagement, last night, seemed imminent.
The reason it did not come ofi; in fact, was
doubtless because neither side was ready.
We may have it to-day. Qeu. Custer, in com
mand of Kilpatrick’s cavalrv division, being
anxious to mix In the fight that seemed to be
Impending, made a dash across Raccoon Ford
with the Michigan brigade, and Pennington’s,
and commenced work in real earnest- As
the position he was in might become critical,
and as his movement would somewhat inter
fere with our arrangements on foot,' he was
directed to re-cross the river. This morning
finds onr whole army in position, and ready
for work. Everybody seems to bo In good
spirits, and may that be a harbinger of a de
cided victory. The country hereabouts is
one of the worst conceivable for field opera
tions. It Is truly named the Wilderness, for
a wilderness of a small growth of wood eov
ci s nine-tenths of the whole surface of the
country. So dense arc these young forests
that it is impossible to penetrate them, ex
cept where paths arc made. This enabled the
enemy; yesterday, to hover on our flanks,
olien within sight of a moving
column almost with impunity. It was not
until late in the rooming that our line onJ.be
front was connected eo as to keep strangling
parties of cavalry outside our "tinea.
During the day it was impossible for any
small parties to pass between two parallel
columns of troops without running the risk of
■*“}£ captnred or shot At about two o’clock
in the afternoon Lieutenant Gifford, Post Ad
jutant at headquarters, accompanied by six
other persons, attempted to cross from
Gregg’s command on the left to headquar
,re ’ aHcB directly across on the road
where the second corps had moved up. When
half wn-across, the party met'a supe
rior force of tie enemy, who fired a volley at
them, and then started in pursuit. A break
neck race for aUnt two miles was the next
thing on the programme. Quite a number of
Blots were Area atlhofleeing party, but for
tnnately no one war wounded, though a num
ber of shots came uttomfortably near. In the
race two of the part) were unharmed, and
four lost their hale glaj to escape eo easily.
Several oacr small parti* were flred npon in
different directions while .tempting to pass
from one column to anoth< r . -Arounh some
mistake the 3d eo™ did nov gc tlnto posffi
as expected, which give the enemy
temporarily some adyantogt The 3d, how

■Washisqtos, Nov. 28,1868.
At day-break next .morning the command
, moved, down the Triana road, and five miles
out It separated—one detachment of one hun
dred and fifty men, under command of Gapt.
Bowman, of the 4th Rc gnlors,. going to the
right, for tho purpose of getting into the rear
ofthc rebels mid Intercepting their Uno of re
heat by of Moorcavule or Decatur,
whßet Major roung with the rest of the «om
mahd, proceeded to Triana, on tho to

w ere reported to he encamped. ■ At Triana
another rebel was captured. Cn the oppo
site side of the river tho picket* of tho enemy
were visible, and two flat >oats were ob
served fastened to the. bant The destruc
tion offerry-boate being me of the objects of
the expedition, the question arose as to how
it was. to be accomplished in this case.
Search was inado wiich resulted in finding
two canoes and a skiff, ;:Yoluntccrs were
c«lled for to cjoss ia these and capture the
boats. A number offered, out of whom Ser
geant Phelps, of Co. ,G: sth lowa, and
eleven men were accepted, who crossed
under cover of Ire from the mounted
irfuntry stationed cn the bank. Tho rebels
fired a few shots aid fled, and the Sergeant
and his party retnrred in safety, bringing tho
boats with them, k negro was also brought
over, from whom hformation was obtained
that a rebel force nader Mqjor Falconet was
stationed at Becatv and other points along
the river, and that a number of flat-boats
were in their possession, which they
used in crossing their parties over the
river, having precoicertca signals for day
and night to canmnnlcate with each
other, and to hail the boats from this
side—they being kept on the sonth side of the
river when not in use. Major Young placed
a dctatchment of thirty men, under Lieut
Cassell, of the 73d Indiana, on board the
boats to proceed down tho river to capture
the other boats, and prevent any rebels on
this side from crossing, whilst he proceeded
on the road with the command.
CONGRESS.
Leaving the rebel leaders to find some'other
means of crossing the river, the command
moved on, throwing ont skirmishers and
flankers to feel for the enemy, whose camp
was reported to bo five miles below. Several
small parties of the .rebels, exchanged shots
with onr men and then fled, bat no force was
found on ; this side of the river. It was night
when the command reached the. month of
Limestone Greek, and with considerable anx
iety awaited the arrival ofthe party sent with
the boats, who soon otter .appeared with six
more boats, making eight in aIL The com
mand encamped here until morning. Ar
rangements were made to cross the river in
'lhe*momlng to attack the. rebel force at De
catur. and destroy the ferry boat at that point,
the only one left along that portion ofthe
river the expedition was ordered to examine.
During the night rockets were sent up on the
south side ofthe river, indicating that a rebel
force was in that locality, and was no doubt
signalling our approach. Early in the
morning they opened a skirmishing
fire upon our men across the the
river, which was briskly replied
to The presence of a considerable force of
rebels to dispute the crossing made the pro
ject rather hazardous, and before concluding
to make the attempt. Major Young moved

THE WAR ill VIRGINIA.
1 HE FEDERAL ADVANCE.
Cur Operations up to Saturday,
November 28th,
[Special Dispatch to tho Chicago Tribune.]
The following is the account sent In by the
JViin York Timas' correspondent:
Auhtop tubPotqrac, Robertson's Tavern, I
Baturdat, Not. 28,1803. J
The enemy’s advance was mot at an early
honrin the. morning, and they gradually fell'
back, skirmishing heavily-until the centre of
our line occupied this place, seven miles from
Germania Ford. All Gregg’s
on the left, the' 2d corps on the centre, and
the Sd corps on the right, bad some pretty
heavy artillery practice and* skirmishing to
secure a proper lino for more active and offen
sive operations. Thelosa In killed and wound
ed in the 2d corps is about 70. In Gregg’s
cavalry division SO will probably cover the
■loss. . -
five miles below, to reconnoitre. A prisoner
“was taken at the ferry, and information ob
tained that a considerable force of rebels was
hi the town.andßoddy’sbrigadeln supporting
distance. The rebels could be seen in the
town, and artillery wasTUstinguished in posi
tion. It was also learned that the rebels had
been busily at work throwing up entrench
ments. 1 The reconnoiteriug party returned
to'Limeetonc Creek, where the skirmishing
fire was still kept up across the river, with
out, however, any casualties oh our side. It
was finally determined not to attempt the
crossing of thejiver, but to destroy the boats,
and return,’the main objects of the expedi
tion haying been thoroughly accomplished.
The boats were accordingly taken up the
creek, out of reach of the enemy's fire, and
chopped to pieces and set fire to. The mill,
before referred to, was rendered useless by
• destroying some parts of the machinery
which cannot readily be replaced by the
rebels. The command then started on the
return, and marched as far os Huntsville the
same evening. ‘ 1 •"*
In addition to the services already men
tioned, the expedition - brought In a large
number of horses suitable for cavalry service,'
and some 200 negroes, many of whom enlist
ed at once in the negro regiments now being
formed here, and the rest were Installed as
officers* servants, to fill the places of those
who have recently quit that service to enter
the nmks 'aa soldiers. The expedition, on
the whole, was a highly important and suc
cessful one, and returned without loss or
casualty, , '
