WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1803. THISE BATS A>T> THOSE. It is diflicnlt to realize hoiv fast tvc are maldng history—liorv fast wo are passing fiom one question of magnitude to another in which we forget the previous ones. Let any man ran over the various matters Trtjich have engaged the public attention during the abort tiroandalialf years which have passed since the war began, and note bow one matter has swallowed another, as snakes arc said to take in their fellows, be ginning at tbc caudal end, and he will be surprised at their number and importance. TVc finish and dismiss a question of the ages now, with more celerity than we for merly settled it, whether Mr, Jones or Hr. Smith is the greater man, and can best re present the people of Podunk in tbc State Legislature. First, The public mind was occupied with the matter of the secession, pare and simple. Could a State secede ? Before wc could settle U by argument wc went to set tling it by knocks. From secession we went to the matter of arbitrary arrests. From, that we passed to the question of emancipation, which blossomed in the- Prcaldcnt’s Proclamation, and is ripening fruits in actual deliverances of Nubian chattels, and now comes the question of reconstruction, with all the composite flicts, principles, and queries which make it up, and all this limp, a great war goes on, and all its varied interests—interests which con cern foreign nations—interests which con • cem humanity, in the care and provision for soldiers in their wounds and sicknesses, according to the demands of the religion of the nineteenth century—all these matters arc attended to and properly disposed o£ Ordinarily one of these great matters would consume two decades. But we arc slipping along through them as if they were every day questions. Nor do* wc merdy dip through them. It is wonderful with what satisfactoriness on the whole, they arc disposed of They are ah, under the circumstances, ugly ques tions to handle. There are various opin ions about them all; and opinions formed daring a course of years, and fortified and made spinous by immovable prejudices and political interests. In truth wc have actually lived off about twenty years during the lost three, and yet few people arc at all aware how far wc have drifted. Few per haps actually realize how different are all the aspects and elates of things now, as compared with those of four and five years ago, when his functitudc J. 8., of Wheat land, was President. Our attention has been so entirely taken up by the war, that wc have scarcely had time to think of merely political questions; or of questions not partisan, but which concern adminis tration,nnd the dignity and honor of the Government But turn your eye back to the days when the Buchanan dynasty roosted and rotted in the high places of this nation. True the right of carrion is not agreeable, even at a great distance. But it maybe well to look, for tbc sake of comparison neverthe less ; for, hope and courage need to be held up in these days. Think of the universal and intense corruption that alarmed all thoughtful men; that made honest men blnrii whenever the thought of public af fairs come into their minds; that raised the question, u how long can, or ought, a na ’ tion to survive, when public virtue has died out of those who control it” To how many men, groaning over these digmal questions did the war come as a re lief Let us have war;—anything but tins putrid air, stagnant and full of odors from the charnel house of shun virtues—any thing rather than the dance of the demons, who ought to have gone into the swine, indeed, they did not, and have returned hither after nineteen hundred years A ■storm out of doors is better than the still weather of the 44 Black Hole.” Probably the rascals are not aD dead yet; but it is a comfort to afford them life, if we can be rid of their presence in the Govern ment. We cannot affirm that none of them have anything more to do with the nation’s afiairSjbut it is a consolation that wc do not have to be forever hearing now of their villainies. It is now nearly two years since we were almost dally regaled wtih ha bitual acomplaints of peculation. If such charges arc nowhrought, they arestrictly cx ■ceptions,such as wc may expect to encounter under any Administration, at any time. True, when the war broke out, we had a turn of shoddy contracts and stealing ma ncuvres, as if some of the foul birds had held over in the oldmest; or some of the incomers supposed that fraud had got her self recognized, and was now to be as of old, the rule; only that a new and hun grier swarm were to have their chance. But tbc truth was, and wc may if we will, recognize it, the nation had elected a triwn to the Chief Magistracy, who did not helietein stedir,$ —had not been brought up to it; and not having been accustomed to steal at home and for himself, did not > believe In it at Washington, and for others. The result has been, that stealing is not in « fashion as it was. It cannot now flaunt it ' self and put on airs, but must skulk about, ' and cover its tracks, and tell hideous lies, to get along. Has not something been gain . Ed here, worth even a part of the (osts of Ihewar? Integrity in national adminis tration is worth something after all So are braint. This nation will some, day come to the recognition of the fact, that toe ease wito which toe various diffi cult questions that have arisen have been . settled, have been due to the putting a man into the 4 Presidential chair, whose distin guishing trait of mind is, his ability to an tic hard knots; a man with a penetrative cast of mind, which does not fofever jump blindly through .the thicket, nor always go around it, but patiently plods on and digs 1 through. What could we have done with such fellows as Pierce and*Buchanan amid the questions of the past three years ? Something too, deserves to be said, if right were in right places, near the Chief Jlagistrate. Header, you may think what you like of the management of finance, Foreign Affairs, and of the Army, under thdr separate heads. We shall not dictate _ toe. thought to you. But out of all these, and other like con siderations, it is hoped you can extract a sufficiency of comfortable material of thought and feeling, to enable you to eat your dinner to-day with a good degree of satisfaction, and to be of a thoughtful mind that these days arc not as those days. NAPOLEON AND THE REBELS. In nothing is the strange infatuation of v . Ihe leaders of the rebellion more marked than In tlic many ways in winch they at tempt to reverse all the maxims of political’ philosophy, and deny the validity of the . best tested and universally .received princi ples of good government. It was a crop ping out of this Insane conceit, tills crazy defiance of all the wisdom of all the past nnd present, that is seen in their monstrous proposition, that slavery is the only true foundation and durable comer stone of a republican government No man but those that had eaten of the insane root that takes the reason prisoner, could ever have pro : .claimed a proposition so monstrous. Atrip to it, and springing from the same disor dered brains, is the assumption that slavery is the only sure basis and source of na ’ tlonal wealth and independence; the only ' overflowing and .copious fountain of civic and manly virtue; and the only fair and nursing . mothef of. art, literature and science. None but men who were groping in the .grossest darkness of ignorance, deaf and blind to all the teachings and examples *of history, with their reason the thrall of. paas*^ M) 0 r tho fool of the most breams, could ever avow such *loctrince; or set towork to build upon such a crazy foundation an enduring political • fabric. The whole world holds them in derision, and nature spurns into instant * nun all their work of folly and crime. ‘ It is the working of. this same extraor . binary insanity—for no other word ex ~ presses it—which has prompted these new builders of State polity, to struggle to rend , the Union into two rival and abutting na „tionß; and thus compel both parts to or - gfiiflgg and maintain standing armies and fleets; erect oo6Qy and stupendous fortifi cations and to bind upon tbc backe of -our j¥»pie, for all time to come, those intolerable hues, exactions, and coa scriptions, and bring about those never ending collisions and wars, beneath which ('yen' nation in Europe to-day groans and bleeds; but which the wisdom of our fa thers has heretofore saved us from, by that greatest and wisest of all political expedi ents, combining many separate States into one supreme and enduring Union. So enormous has become the burden in Eu rope, of supporting their standing armies; and such an incubus, arc they justly thought by eveiybody, on the labor, the enterprise, the progress, the life of nations, that-with all men of thought, of patriotic hope, or philanthropic purpose, one para-, mount object of their deepest solicitude and most constant effort, is to devise some plan by which these oppressive and terrible in stitutions, eating out the substance of the land, and devouring its children, may with safety be abolished. So earnest and pro found is this feeling' and desire, so appa-. rent to all is the magnitude and depth of the evil, that we find Napoleon bringing it forward in his speech from the throne, and proposing to call a European Congress to repress, if possible, the evil, or at least, lessen in some way, its imminent danger. He says: 44 What can he more In conformity with the ideas of the age, with the wishes of the greatest number, than to address ourselves to the conscience, to the reason, of statesmen in all countries, ana to say—Bare not the prejudices and rancor which di vides ns, already lasted long enough—is the Jealous rivalry of tbc great powers incessantly to obstruct the progress of civilization? Shall wc bo con stantly casting defiance at each other, by exag gerated armaments? Arc our most precious re sources to be Indefinitely exhausted in vain oaten tation of our strength? Shall we eternally pre serve a position which Is neither peace with Us se curity, nor war with its 'chances of success!” But this condition of things, so perilous and so mischievous and destructive; which the wisest statesmen and best men are strug gling so earnestly and unceasingly to escape from in Europe—is the very condition into which these framers of disunion and archi tects of secession, arc striving with might and main to plunge our own country. Separate this united nation into two ad joining and independent States or Confed eracies, and yon bring in at once prejudice and rancor between them; jealous rivalry, of each other’s power; standing and exag gerated armies and armaments; ‘disputes, collisions and never-ending wars; a coun try impoverished and desolated; insupera ble obstacles to progress and civilization; and our most precioufc resources exhausted in vain ostentation of strength, or conflict The great and good men of every other country on earth seek aadtoil to save their native land from these wrongs and evils; but the crazy schemers of rebellion, and fanatics of secession, innocent of all wisdom, as they are reckless of all guilt, give fortune, life and honor to fasten upon their country all this long train of misfor tunes and oppressions. Having by nature, or adopting from corrupt living, all the most perverse, preposterous and inconceiv able principles and theories, they propose to overturn all -that has been tested by ex perience, and deny all that has been proved by time. They laugh at the wisdom of all the present, and mock the conclusions of all the past They find peace. in unending war; strength in disunion; glory In treason and crime; and humanity with religion in slavery. What Europe discards with scom as the worn-out garments of a vicious and corrupt age, filled with disease and in fection, these rebel chiefs catch up and dress themselves in, with a flaunting pride. What the world proclaims sheer folly, these new men put forward as the only sure de fense of States. What God and all good men abhor, these extraordinary sons of our time take to their hearts and worship as their religion. If there be an institution universally condemned, they 'null be sure to adopt It; if there be a folly in legislation, or a crime in politics, they are sure to scheme and work until they have perpetra ted both. • • lILCVOIS ELECTION, Tfye following returns of the election held in this State on the 3d inst, we have com piled with considerable care. In some of the counties there was no contest, and wc have simply given the vole cast by the par ty which made nominations and supported them. We take the vote given for County Treasurers, as more nearly influenced,by party considerations than any other. In several counties we are compelled to give simply the majority, being unable to obtain thefuUvote. It will be seen that the peo ple of Illinois appreciate the situation, and have dealt a blow to copperheadism from which it can hardly recover, at least not within a twelve month. * within a twelve month. * . 1563. 18C2. | Counties.

The full vote in these counties would add about 2,600 to each column, making the Union vote about 127,000 and the cop perhead vote about 08,600. There is one feature about these returns of marked peculiarity. In every county which gave a copperhead majority last year we believe, without a sin gle exception, our gain of strength is decided, with a corresponding loss to the copperheads, while in the strong Union counties the copperheads, in most instances, declined a contest, and allowed the Unionists to have it all their own way. The result was a greatly reduced, vote in those counties. Had the copperheads made any show of fight, the aggregate vote of the State would have been considerably in creased over last year. As it is, the Union vote is some 7.000. larger than last year. • tar Gov.'Bradford of Maryland, after hear ing testimony from the objectors, has officially* proclaimed John A. J. Creswcll, Edvrin H.

FROM WASHINGTON. cr*~XUc Glorlom* News from Chatta nooga—Ti»o Bcbcla and the Colored Frisoners- Tlic National Uanlcs--Tlie Fractional Currency—New Patents— Post Ofllce Appointments, Ac. [From Oar Special Correspondent.] Washington, In t ot. 27,1863. * THANESOIVTNO. The day was appropriately kept yesterday. Sermons were preached in nearly all the Pro testant churches; by Rev. J. McKcndrec Ri lay, Methodist; Rev. Dr. Ryan, do.; Rev. Dr. Hall, Episcopal; Rev. G. IT. Gray, Bap tist; Rev. J. H. Parks, 0. S. Presbyterian; Rev. T, R. Hewlett, Baptist; Rev- Dr. Chan cing, Unitarian, and others. At the various hospitals the soldiers were regaled with thanksgiving dinners, speeches were, made, sentiments given, &c, In tract it was a gen uine, New England thanksgiving. The South erners residing here, however, I noticed, gen erally refrained from participating. There ore many here of seceah proclivities, even in the Departments. They keep their months shut In public, but at home in private they ventilate their views, while drawing Govern ment pay. quite freely. They say they are against secession, 'hut opposed to the war. Well, ibis is simply but the Northern cop perhead creed. In the evening the various theaters, concert rooms, &c., were crowded to their utmost capacity. And speaking of this reminds me that the indefatigable Im press ario. Grew, well known to yonr Chicago citizens, is here with a fine operatic troupe catering to the musical taste of the Washing tonians, which I should Judge, however, is not of a very high order. THE RICHMOND PRISONERS. The exchanged Union surgeons arrived here in time to enjoy a good Thanksgiving dinner, and they did enjoy it heartily. They look considerably the worse for wear. Their garments appear to have served them for night and day wear, and their linen, or rather woolen, sadly needs shifting. A num ber of the officers are stopping at my hotel- They state that the prisoners, upon their arrival, at Richmond, from other parts where captured, were obliged to stand three hours in the hot son. while the wounded men were conveyed through the streets In cots. A Dr. Whitney remonstrated against this, and was taken be fore the Provost Marshal, stripped of his sword and sash, and all his money. Indeed, all the prisoners had their money, amounting in the case of the soigeons and alone, to $17,000, taken' from them. It was prom ised that it should be returned to them in kind; hnt instead, it was returned in Confed erate money, cptirely worthless here. When the officers entered the prison, their rations consisted of one pound of beef per day, (bones and all,) aha sixteen ounces of bread. They had to cook their own food* They no ticed a deficiency in the rations after the mid dle of last month. The fresh beef was first missing, turning np once in four days. One pound of com bread ‘'was furnished them each day alter this, with one sweet potato. They were treated with thegreatest contempt on all occasions,—in fact, with that usual dis regard of the rights of human beings which distinguishes the man-stealing Confederacy. Among the prisoners Is Surgeon John T. Lu cie, or the U. S. navy, of Tennessee. He was taken on Morris Island. Charleston, and was confined in the Libby prison, Richmond, where he found one thousand officers confined in se ven rooms, forty by one hundred feet each, with out blankets or bedding, left to shift for themselves as they best could. Even in South Carolina, and also in North Carolina, he fonud some Union men and women who as sisted him. There are no fires in the Libby Prison, and half the windows arc 'Without glass. The best rations they had in the prison consisted of one pound of wheat , bread, one-fourth of a pound, of fresh and two ounces of rice. After a while, com bread was substituted for wheat, and very often they bad no rice or beet; and but one or two very small sweet potatoes. The men at Belle Island (the worst den of the lot) were brought to the other prisons starving, and some of them are stated to have died while in the act of eating their food. On the way from one prison to the other, they would eagerly devonr any scraps thrown to them. This is the manner in which our men have . been treated by these miserable traitors and scoundrels. THE GLORIOUS NEWS FROM CHATTANOOGA. TJie-glorious news from Chattanooga was 1 received here yesterday with great joy by all j true Union men, while the rebel sympathizers I i were silent. It is understood tiiat the guns I .captured were principally those which the enemy had in position to shell our works around Chattanooga, and* also to intercept oursnpplies. The eastern men are getting quite Jealous of the way in which our west ern boys arc getting ahead of them in the war. it looks now as if Richmond, and even Charleston and Savannah would be prizes to western valor, as was the case with Colum bus, Donclson, Vicksburg, Knoxville, Chatta nooga, and other rebel strongholds. THE BEBET-S AND THE COLORED PRISONERS. In a former letter I spoke of the President’s determination not to proceed with the ex change of prisoners until our colored regi ments were in every respect put on an equal-- ity with our white. 'I forgot, at that time, to notice that onr white officers of colored regi ments share the same fate in rcbcldom os their men. So that those miserable sccesh, traitor sheets, like the Time* and others,when they ask ns to give np the colored troops to the barbarous roles which the rebels have thought fit to make, ask ns to give up their white officers to the same fate. In this they arc only doing what they have done since the war commenced, asking ns to give np every thing to the rebels, even the Uzuon itself! But I am glad to know that the faith of the ' Government is pledged to protect these men, and that the President will not abandon them.- On tills he Is so fixed that no power on earth ‘ con move him. And Mr. Lincoln was the [ man who showed the nerve in this matter I from the start With his own hand he wrote i the order to that, effect The President bos l also ordered that the stem law of retaliation i shall go into effect to avenge the death of the [ first Union soldier of whatever color whom ) the enemy shall destroy in cold blood or sell L into slavery. The fair exchange of colored 1 soldiers ana their white officers, lam assured i on the highest authority, will be Insisted on 5 before another rebel prisoner is exchanged. » THE NATIONAL BANES. J The formation of National Banks !s going \ on all over the country. A fine marble-front , building is going np for the First National i Bank in this city, it is fronting the Treasury, j and wiR cost $50,000. I The first National Bank of New Orleans ) hashed $500,000 subscribed to its stock in | that city. These bonks promise, to a great [ extent, to do away with the State banks, and [ thus give a uniformity to the currency, so 3 very desirable and necessary in bank transac i tions. THE FRACTIONAL CUBRENCT. The new fractional currency recently is sued has been fonnd to bp & total failure. Bach bill consists of two pieces of thin pa per pasted together, which come apart after exposure to the least moisture. A new de sign is now in preparation, which will con tain a fae simile ot the coin, which each bill represents, and will have a border enclosing them of some simple but difficult design to counterfeit The machinery in the Treasury Department for making money, driven by steam power, is certainly wonderful.

THE SECOND WEST TENNESSEE COLORED REGIMENT. 120,116 136,662 Fla" Presentation by Illinois Ladles. ]From Our Special Correspondent.! Moscow, Tew., Nor. 26,1863. It may be necessary to inform your read ers that this regiment was organized at La grange, Tenn., in June last, under the aus pices of the gallant Dick Oglesby, then com manding the left wing of the 16th Army Corps, assisted by that other brave and patriotic Illi nois officer, Col. James M. True, of the 62d Illinois, who at that time was in command of the infantry and artillery forces between La grange and Memphis. The regiment now numbers between eight and nine hundred men, and is officered entirely from North western regiments, the majority of the offi cers being from Illinois. The Colonel, Frank A. Kendrick, formerly Major of the 2d lowa cavalry, Is an experienced and accomplished officer, extensively and favorably.known in the Western army, through his previous ser vices with the cavalry. A remarkable degree of proficiency has already been attained by these soldiers, and I should like some of yonr copperhead friends, who don’t think black men capable of becoming soldiers, to see them on drill or parade. It would convince them that such persons can acquire the appearance of soldiers, at least ’ Certain patriotic ladies of Springfield* Illi nois, members of two Union societies there, have taken sufficlct interest in this regiment to prepare for it a magnificent silk flog, which was recently sent to them, and was formally presented a few days since. On this occasion the regiment haring been paraded in full uni form, Major E. R. Wiley, jr. ? made the pre sentation in behalf of the ladies, reading the subjoined address: Spuinctielo, HI., Oct. 12,1863. Soldiers of the Second Regiment West Tennessee Volunteers In behalf of the Ladies* Loyal League, and the Soldiers* Aid Society, of Springfield, 111., wc send von this flag. " „ To you It is doubly deaf as the emblem of Un ion and Liberty. Wo are' satisfied that yon will never disgrace it. Strive to emulate the glorious example of your hcMic brothers who fonght at Wagner and Port Hufilon. Follow It on the march, ondthrongh the smoke of battle, as the day-star of yonr freedom, and never part with it while there Is a hand to grasp It, or a brave heart to cherish it, . Mbs.’R. P. Selbt, Secretary Ladies, Loyal League. Jins. L. Tutor, Secretary Soldiers’ Aid Society. Col. Kendrick, in receiving the flag for the regiment, thanked the ladies for the kind in terest they had manifested in the regiment, and the efforts of its officers to advance the country’s cause, and pledged to them, and to the world, that whenever occasion should arise, such. Os tested the heroes of Wagner and Port Hudson, the soldiers of ihe 2d West Tennessee would not be found wanting; on the contrary, ho Tclt assured that with like opportunity they would exhibit to the world an example of heroism not surpassed even by that of the illustrious 54th Massachusetts and the Ist Louisiana. . After the singing of the Star Spangled Ban ner, the regiment gave three hearty cheers for the ladies of the Loyal League and Soldiers’ Aid Society of Springfield. Cheers were also riven for the flag, for the President and the Emancipation Proclamation, and for General Grant A deep interest, on the part of the soldiers, in the occasion and ceremonies, was evinced by their close attention and their enthusiasm at times. They arc evidently olive to the dignity and the important responsibilities of their present position, and I think there need be no apprehension that the old flag will ever suffer dishonor in their hands. £. OUR PRISONERS AT RICHMOND. How they are treated by the Rebels. Official Report of the Released Prisoners. Washington, Nov. 23. The following official statement of all the ninety-five* Surgeons -Teccnlly released from Libby Prison, was this p. m. presented to the President. Dr. Ashman, of Ohio, was Presi dent of the meeting at which the statement was adopted- ’ While wo have all along known their true character, the rebels have succeeded in convincing the world that we barbarously violated the rules of war, but that their conduct was always regulated by the most scrupulous regard for humanity. The following document which calmly and dispassionately recites the facts on the faith and honor of ninety-five medical officers; none below the rank of Major or Captain, is valuable not only for the new light it throws on the dismal sufferings of onr prisoners, hut mainly because it gives us tho recital of their sufferings and tho attestation of an official sanction that no man in his sense will ques tion. Steanto Adelaide, ' I Chesapeake Bat, Nov. 30,1863. f At a meeting of the Surgeons of the United States Army and Navy lately confined In prison in Richmond, Vo., of which G. P. Ashman, Snrgcon of tho Din Ohio volunteers infantry, was chosen Chairman, and J. Mc- Cnrdy, Surgeon of the 11th Ohio volunteer Infantry, Secretary, It was resolved that a committee of seven bo appointed to prepare a report on the condition ond treatment of national prisoners in Richmond, also the prisoners* quality and quantity of rations, and treatment of our sick and wounded. The following committee was appointed: Baslel Meeker, Surgeon TJ. S. vola; N. Q. Her ri(*. Surgeon 34th Ills, vols ; Wm. Houston, Sur geon ISSd Ohio vote; J. H- J. lloaaick. Surgeon ITth Ohio tolb ;J. Horens Rice, Surgeon 4tb Mass, vote; John 8. Lock, Assistant Snrgcon U. S. Navy, and Augustine A. Mann, Assistant Surgeon Ist It. I. cavalry. ~, .. The following report was presented by the Chairman of the Committee, which was read and adopted unanimously, after which the - Committee received tho thanks of the meet ing and were discharged: nnroßT. . A Committee appointed by the U. S. Army and Navy Surgeons recently imprisoned in Richmond. Va., to report thejiast and pres ent condition and treatment of Union pris oners now held at that place, submit the fol lowing facts, derived from the personal ob servations and statements of fellow-prison ers, in whose veracity they have implicit con fidence. Officers, about 1,000 In all, and representing nearly all grades and both branches of the service, arc confined in seven rooms at the Libby Prison, a building formerly used as a warehouse. Each room is 43 feet wide and 103 feet long, affording to each prisoner but about twenty-seven. cubic feet of air. The rooms have onplastcred walls, partitions and ceilings; but few of the windows are glazed, being either open to the full sweep of cold winds, or closed with boards or canvass, thus rendering the rooms dark and cheerless. One of the rooms is used exclusively os kitchen and dining-room, while portions of others arc necessarily devoted to the same purposes, and but nine scantily-furnished and medium sized cookstoves are supplied. The prison officers have to do their own cooking, and the supply of wood for tills purpose is often insufficient, and occasionally for half a day none nt all is sent In. A privy and sink render foul and disgusting one end of each room, polluting at Ames tne air of the entire range of apart ments. None arc permitted to leave this building of accumulated and accumulating horrors till moved from there to the hospital, or arc, happily, exchanged. Enlisted men arc confined in various places. At the time, the Burgeons left Richmond there were about 6,800 soldiers held on Belle Island, on the James River, near the city, and about 4,000 soldiers and 150 sailors and marines in a building-similar to and in tho immediate vicinity of Libby, The condi of tbssc men is-abont tho same as that of the officers In the Libby, only they are much more crowded. The condition of those on the Island is much worse. An insufficient number of tents arc furnished to protect them from the cold and rain, and no blankets or any other bedding have been given them by the rebels. Only one Surgeon is assigned to Belle Island, and he makes but one visit a day, daring which he does not enter the en closure where the men arc kept, to sec those too sick to walk, but attends to those only who arc able to come to him. When the ne glected are sent to the hospitals, it is often too late. None of our privates in prison, or about Libby, are furnished with bedding of ‘ any kind. A member of the Committee re ceived a letter from a roan belonging to the tame command, and confined in the buQding opposite Libby, to tiffs effect: “ Boctor Webb, if you can. we want yon to try to get ns something—cither clothes or blankets— to Seep na worm. We have no fires In the build ings to warm ns—have nothing either to lie on or cover ns, and suffer greatly from cold.” In the Libby, stoves lor heating purposes have recently been put up in some of the rooms, but no fuel of any description has been givcn.to render them ulfefuL At one time the rations issued consisted of - about three-quarters a pound of wheat bread, a fourth of a pound of fresh beef, two ounces of beans, and a small quantity of vinegar and salt for each prisoner per day. Subsequent ly, the same quantity of com bread made of meal, and rice instead of beans, were issued in the some quantity; or, in lien of beef and rice, two or three small sweet potatoes, and quite often—more particularly within the past two weeks—absolucly nothing except the .three-fourths of a pound of com bread has been issued to each prisoner to satisfy the. gnawing hunger for twenty-four hours. One-* tenth of the Northern men on Belle Island did not getai morsel of anything to eat until 4 o’clock p. m, . , .. . .. The committee unanimously agree that the rations frzmishcd our prisoners by the rebel authorities at Richmond are not sufficient to prevent prisoners from sufferingfrom hunger and thus becoming debilitated and very sus ceptible to disease. Some of the committee have seen men brought from Belle Island to • the prison hospital literally starving to death. A united States army officer of high rank, and of undoubted veracity, there, and now prisoner In Libby, told a member of the com • mittce that while on a visit to Belle Island recently, whence he went by permission of the rebels, the prisoners there followed mm in crowds as he walked round the enclosure, and cried to him with eager voices, “We arc hungry, send ns bread,” “ send ns bread. Were It not for supplies received from home none of those confined In Libby and other prisons would escape the‘pangs ofnnngcr.. On arriving at the prisons, officers were searched, and in addition to articles contra band of war, their money and other valuables are token from them. A few get all, some a great portion and others none of their money returned, while no other articles are returned. All money arriving in letters and express packages forprisoners, fromwhatever source, is taken and deposited with the rebel Quar termaster of Richmond, and the owner is permitted to draw It In stated amounts in rebel paper, though they allow seven dollars in Confederate currency for one of United States money. Some of the surgeons releas ed ycstcaday, on applying for money taken from them on various pretenses, and always with the promise that if released while any remained on deposit, it would be returned in kind, were cruelly told that the aforesaid Quartermaster had exchanged all their money, and they must take Confederate or none. The treatment received by our privates Is of the greatest severity. For looking out of a win dow three nights since, pno was shot and in stantly killed. Those having trades, and also some who have none, arc taken out into the city and compelled to work, guarded and re strained from all liberty by sentinels. : About tliirty of our men are now employed in Richmond making shoes supposed to be for the rebel army. Some officers have been' ’compelled to scrub floors, clean water closets of the prison, and perform other menial ser vices, and all have been at all tithes since their imprisonment In Libby subjected to menial and brutal treatment on the pari of the prison subordinates; and the inspector of the prison, when applied to, dares not re buke the subordinates, but encourages them in further offenses. Upon the most trivial charges, officers have been confined for from thirty-four hours to several days in dungeons under the jail, there fed only on bread and water. An officer, for doing that which cer tainly did not merit the offense, was put into one of these dungeon-cells, though at the time convalescent from typhoid lever, and too weak to do anything. Not more than 200 blankets have been given all the prisoners in Libby by the rebels. Were it not for those received from home and furnished by the. Sanitary Commission* all would suffer very much. * Twice within the past week the floors of the prisons have been serubbednt sundown, and thus through the cold night following, with no fire to drive off the moisture where the officers • must Ho on the floors, engendering disease, or walk them till morning. On two other occasions the floors were scrubbed nearly half an hour be fore the officers were ready to rise from their beds, and various ways, do thcou-. thorities seek to make our position not only uncomfortable, but dangerous. After their arrival at the hospital the sick are not unkindly treated,and the rations given to them are a riiade better than those served, to them while in the prison,hnt so debilitated have they become by privations of food and so stricken hyuxposnre previous to their ad mission, that Ihe mortality among the Union prisoners 0 t Richmond and Belle Island to gether has reached the startling number of fifty in one day. All the prison hospitals ore unsufficiently supplied with medicine for the proper treat ment of the sick, and finally the members or this commutes Individually assert that no prison or penitentiary ever seen by them In a northern State did not surpass m cheerful ness healthiness,abundance of rations issued, than in either of the military prisons m Rich mond.

[From the N. Y. Independent.] Supreme Court, city and county of New York, Addison G. Jerome, plaintiff; against the Michi gan Southern and Northern Indiana Railroad Company, Henry Keep and others, defendants. Summons, complaint, and affidavits, etc. Charles Rapallo, Attorney for plaintiff, No. 05 Wall at., New York. Such is tbc title of a great lawsuit just commenced In this city;- and we shall he much mistaken If it does not develop an amount of stock-jobbing “financiering” which will astonish the very oldest Inhabi tant of Wall street • It appears that Addison G. Jerome, Esq., one of tho leading capitalists and stock op erators In this city, became convinced, some time during the' spring and summer—on good Wall street evidence—that the Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana Rrilroad Company was a sound institution, that it was, managed by honorable men, that it was doing a thriving business, and that an investment of a few millions of dollars in the stock of said corporation would be a safe and profita ble operation. In most of these calculations, however, Mr. Jerome claims to have been woefully dis appointed: for, after investing in the con cern, for himself and friends, tho modest sum of four or five millions of dollars, he sudden ly learns that certain directors connected with it had, as he charges, been playing “Schuy ler” to the tunc of about one and a half mil lions. Said directors had “ over-issued” this immense amount of stock, it is alleged, in order to break down the Jerome party, and at tbc same time famish them, the directors, an opportunity each to make, as tbc Frenchman said, “onegrand tpec-e It appears by the sworn statements of the plaintiff, Mr. Jerome: L That the board of directors never an thorized these speculators to issue this im. mense amount of extra stock. 2. That tho responsibility of these proceed* logs was assumed by two or three individuals connected with the board. 8. That a deliberate attempt was made to deceive the public in general and Mr. Jerome in particular. *• ' 4. That on application by Mr. Jerome to Henry Keep, one of the directors, for Infor mation on the subject of an over-issue ot stock, said Keep “ did moke him believe that said company bad not issued and did not in tend to issue any additional stock.*’ 5. That Elisha M. Gilbert, an cx-President and a director of said company, also stated that no new Issue of stock had been made, “ though at the time be well knew to the contrary” os the “plaintiff verily believes.” 0. That Milton Conrtright, another direc tor, also—talked In the same way. 7. That the transfer clcrk/Canflcld Jenk ins, said to Mr. Jerome that “the company hod not issued any such new or additional stock.*’ 8. That In consequence of these “ false re presentations” the plaintiff says he continued to purchase and hold said stock. 0. That “ finally ho extracted from the de fendants William Keep and Milton Courtrlght the information that additional stock to the extent of about one million fivfc hundred thou sand dollars had been issued.” 'lO. That certificates of stock were issued in favor of the firm of Lockwood & Co., stock brokers, and that said Lockwood & Co. sold said stock for the benefit of tho company os “genuine stock. 0 1L That the register of said company, Isaac Seymour, Esq., since deceased, before signing said new certificates of stock, re quired a deposit of “ various collateral secu rities as an indemnity against such acts, and said securities were deposited.” 12. That the plaintiff was called on by the Bnnir of North America, of which Mr. Scy-’ mour was President, to return a loan of three hundred thousand dollars, for whldb loan the “genuine stock of said company” bad been given, in part, as collateral security. 18. That when It become publicly known that a large amount of new stock had been thrown upon the market, the price suddenly fell from about 110 to 77. But wc have neither space nor patience to go on with the details of this monstrous “operation.” Letter of tbo Now York Democratic League to tbo Chicago War Demo cratic Convention. The following letter has been addressed to the Chicago War Democratic Convention by the Now York Democratic League: Omen or the Democratic League, I New York, Nor. 23,1863. j To the President and Members of the Democratic Convention to be Assembled at Chicago, Nov. 25th, 1863: Gentlemen Nothing could, be more grat ifying to the Democracy of the nation than the notice of the assembling of your conven tion. The great Democratic heart of the coun try is yearning to be disenthralled from those influences that have been bringing revilement and disgrace upon the name Democrat. It is useless for Democrats to cling to the basis of the past. We shall bo carried forward by the inexorable logic of events. Wc shall be obliged to reason truthfully in the end, and the onlv question is, whether our country men will learn to reason rigidly,and act just ly through judgment and foresight, or further wait to be brought to their senses through calamity. Statesmanship will he obliged to go to the bottom of oil questions on the humanitarian principle. There arc seven millions of white people in the South, and four millions of col ored people who require disenthrallment.* They will require labor to he placed on the same platform of advantage that is occupied by the free states of the North, They nave ' hitherto been placed under the ban of social, political, educational and industrial disability by an oppressive and discouraging pro-slave ry policy. Look at the industrial and educa tional tables appended. In these tables yon may see the results of that policy which has afflicted these masses of the South. • It has taken decent shelter from the heads of fami lies. It has taken decent raiment -from their bodies. It has. taken palatable food from their tables. It has token education from their children. It has rendered them igno rant and subject to political debauebment, until the South had nearly ceased to be a component part of national strength in con nection with the American Idea of civil liber ty and free government If Democrats will rise to the magnitude of the issue os it exists between the Democratic Unionists of the South, struggling for politi cal existence under the old national ensign on (the one hand, and the antl-Democrauc forces eolleagued with European aristocracy to abrogate the Democratic principle in Sonthem politics, perhaps they may grow wiser in the direction of their sympathies.. In this conflict between the Democratic and antl-Democratic forces, we shall be very sure to go to the bottom of the question and touch firm ground. There is no half-way house be tween true Democracy and the platform of the traitors that any man of principle can now stop at ‘ It was burned down by the fire on iFort Sumter in 1861. Men have been vainlv running about since to find materials tobhllditup. “ Slavery and Democracy are incompatible,” says Mr. Garnett. “Let ns seek to eradicate every vestige of radical Democracy, every feature tending to make onrs a popular gov ernment” says the Southern Literary Me.w/i --ger. “we have no special objections to roy-' alty when restrained by constitutional bar riers,” saystheeamedelectableprint “Sep aration from the North (soys Mr. Spratt) will merely adjourn the contest As this Southern Democracy grapples slavery in its homes and on its hearthstones, slavery is like the Thra cian horse that boro its rider from the field, and escaping enemies abroad, will -bo forced to encounter a still more bloody contest with its enemies at home.” “An hereditary Sen ate and Executive is the political form best suited to the genius, and most expressive of the ideas of the South,” soys De Bow’s Re ticle, On such an issue as tins, involving a conspiracy against free labor and the funda mental principles of free government, need Democrats doubt where to place themselves ? There is one plank spacious enough to make a platform on which all true Democrats can stand—that clause in the Constitution which guarantees Republican Government to the people of all the States. The future work to be. done on .that platform will bo effectually to remove all antagonisms of true Democracy. We have an issue upon us that will test the strength of democratic principles. All the anti-democratic forces of the South leagued with the active hostility of the anti-demo cratic influences of western Europe are, and have been against ns. We have suffered much calamity and expended much blood and trea surq from not understanding the real issue better. Wo may sufier still more from a dis tracted and divided North. If wc can; affili ate in thc'North on the true issue which the traitors have distinctly raised, and take the appeal to those masses of the South whose •rights have been conspired against, the work of healthy restoration will soon be accom plished. But remember, gentlemen, the Southern Unionists now demand a beneficent policy which shall make the South a free South, and the democratic Sonth the future .political South. , • ~ Wo trust that your convention may lay hold of the great and true issue* It may not be the case that you will be enabled to see matters from the same southern stand-point from which wo have becn -ohllged to contemplate them. We hope, nevertheless, that the great political viorale now involved in the conflict -of political forces, will be distinctly brought out and made tbe basis of future political action. It would afford Us much pleasure to be able to harmonize with all who stand by the principles of true democracy, and to the determination to maintain them. In the confidence that yonr convention will gnuncinte such views and principles os shall occord with the sympathies of true demo crats, we respectfully tender to your body the respects of the democratic league.

By Isaac Y. D. Hxaxu. With Portraits and Illustrations. I3mo, Cloth, |LSO. 13T Sold by Agents. This is atelthM history of the terrible massacres of 1962-S, of which the opportunities of the author—u a resident in Minnesota bom a time previous to the oc cupation by the Sioux of their “ reservation'* on the Minnesota Blver, as connected with the command of General Sibley during the summer campaign against ths savages, and as a member of the Military Commis sion at which aboutlOOofthe perpetrators were tried —have enabled him to present a strictly authentic nar rative. And of sneh a narrative, to say that It is au thentic is tagive it the highest commendation. It is the recital of events at which the heart of man shud ders—of murder inflicted upon unoffending men, upon helpless women and Innocent children, of the burning of homes, and of outrage and rapine too deliberate to be believed, and too horrible aliqpst to be told—of calflmityterriblesnd&earatband. The more strik ing events of the story are soon (old—the outbreak— the series of startling and desolating murders—the gathering together of the Indians of the Upper and Lower Agency for the consummation of tbeirdisbol tcal work—all this moves rapidly through the first bloody week. Then follows the punishment—the con flict with the Indians, the pursuit, the capture, and the final execution of the principal malefactors. The author closes the book with some very sensible sug gestions as to the future conduct of the Indian De partment, with a view to securing Justice to the In dians, and safety to the white settlers in the vicinity of the “reservations.” HASPES & BROTHERS HATS JUST PUBI.KHIXP : HARPER'S MAGAZINE FOR DECEMBER, 1863, com meeting a new Vol. 25 cents a Number.
