We ore glad to learn that the Govern in cut
has turned over lo Gen. Butler the entire
management of the exchange of prisoners.
If he can't bring about the release of our
starving soldiir#. no man need tiy. He re
cently succeeded In effecting the exchange of
000 prisoners, by the simple expedient of
sending f-00 rebel* under a flag of truce up
the dames rivet* to Fort Darling, and tender
ing them to the Confederates, man for man
and officer for officer, of the eamerank. The
latter could not resist the offer, and sent
down an equal number of ourmcn; but they
refused to negotiate further with Gen. But-.
Jer, alleging that he Is an outlaw by Jeff
Davis's proclamation issued thirteen months
ago, and therefore they will not recognise
him as a Federal agent
Butler laughsat this shallow pretext, and re
plies that Jeff Davis is also an outlaw by the
terms of President Lincoln's recent Amnes
ty Proclamation, and that when he is caught
he will surely be hung. On the score of out
lawry 41 honors arc therefore easy," and be
insists that the exchanges must go on. If
the rebel authorities peremptorily decline,
be will then recommend the adoption of such
measures as will speedily bring tham to their
milk. Butler is not a man to be trifled with,
nor overreached in a bargain, nor seared by
Some of our readers may have forgotten
the circumstances which led to the outlawry
of Gen. Butler. When Admiral Farragut laid
his fleet alongside of New Orleans, he sent a
messenger to the Mayor and city authorities,
ordering them to remove the rebel flogs from
the public buildings, and to hoist the Ameri
can flag. The Mayor replied; “ The city is
yonrs by military force, and is held by your
gunners and your mortars. It is for you to
determine onr late. As to hoisting any flag
but the Confederate, we shall not do It
Come on shore and hoist whatflagyon please,
but don't ask ns to do yonr flag raising.”
The reply was slightly Impudent, but not im
proper. The gallant Admiral saw that the
Mayor had the best of the dispute, and did
not press the order farther, but sent an offi
cer with a party of marines ashore, who
proceeded to remove the insurgent flag from
the flag-staff of the United States mint and
hoist in its place the old Stars and Stripes.
The officer warned the crowd that the guns
of the steamer Pensacola would certainly
open fire if any one was seen molesting that
flag. The howitzers in the maintop of the
Pensacola, loaded with grape, were aimed at
the flag-staff and the guard ordered to fire
the moment any one attempted to pull it
down. At 11 o'clock a. m. of the next day,
while the crews of all the ships were as
scmblcdbn the decks for prayers, they were
startled from their devotions by a discharge
from the howitzers over head. Every eye
sought the flag-staff of the mint. Four men
were seen on the roof, who had tom down
our national emblem and were scampering
away with it, disappearing from sight in a
moment. The exasperation of the fleet was
intense. It was all that the Admiral could
do to prevent the crews from opening a
broadside and shelling the city. The rebel
population hailed the act with vociferons ac
clamations. The next morning the Pcayune
announced the names of the four heroes who
had distinguished themselves by gallantly
tearing down the Federal flag.” The leader
of the gang was a gambler by the name of
W. B..Mumford, who cut the halyards and
brought it down. The villains, having se
cured their prize, trailed it In the mud of the
streets amid the cheers and yells of the mob.
At last they tore It into shreds and distribu
ted the pieces among the crowd. After this
exploit, the miscreant Mumford, who had in
sulted the flag of his conntiy and endangered
the lives of tboosopds of women and child
ren from a sudden bombardment, walked
the streets bold, insolent, and defiant. He
became a lion in the eyes of the whole black-
leg fraternity of New Orleans, and the cham
pion of secession at the groggeries and sa
loons. One of Gen. Butler's first acts was to
arrest the villain and order him tried by
court-martiaL The facts were fully proven
and boldly owned by the hardened culprit.
The Court condemned him to bo hung, and
Gen. Bntlcr approved the sentence and or
dered its execution. His friends, the Thugs
and gamblers, dared the General to execute
the sentence of the Court, and notified him
that his own life would pay the forfeit They
bound themselves by frightful oaths to assas
sinate him. But Butler was not the man to
be intimidated; be quietly said, 44 Let the
sentence of tho Court be executed—let the
law take its course.” The villain was taken
ont at the appointed hour, and publicly hang
in the presence of thon-ands of the secession
mob. Not a man raised a finger for his res
cue. The spirit of the Thugs was broken.
The rabble was cowed. They discovered that
there was another Gen. Jackson among them,
who was not afraid to take responsibility in
the line of official duty. No more Federal
flags were pulled down by gamblers orknlghts
of the bowie knife, and Gen. Butler dwelt
eight months after this occurrence in New
Orleans, unharmed. He went about the
streets of the city openly, at all boors, in
cabs and hacks, on horseback and on foot, ac
companied by a single orderly, except on re
view days and occasions of state.
For this act—for refusing to annul the sen
tence of the court martial, and declining to
pardon the guilty miscreant who had palled
down the flag of his conntiy from a United
States edifice, and dragged it in the filth of the
streets and tom It into shreds—Gen. Bntlcr
is outlawed by the rebel chief Jeff Davis,
himself on outlaw who will surely be hanged
if caught. But the most shameful and das
tardly part of the whole matter remains to
be stated: The Copperhead prints and lead
. ere denounced Sutler for doing his sacred
duty in protecting the honor and dignity of
bis conntiy, justified Darts for his 801 l of
outlawry, and apologized for the crime com
mitted by a traitor blackleg! Can any sort
of infamy be blacker?
We publish to-day an article from the New
York Tribune on the English Treaty and Lake
Defenses. We arc glad to sec that New York
is waking up to the need of having something
done for the protection of commerce on the
Lukes, And we do not object that the fact
of so many millions in the East depending
on that commerce for their daily bread, Is
made so prominent. We would prefer to
sec the constitutional duty and obligation of
the General Government to secure theNorth
veet and Us commerce against rebel raids, or
hostile attacks, mere earnestly set forth and
enforced. For if this section of the country
is part of the Union, the General Govern
ment rests under the most solemn obligation
to afford it ail needed protection against such
■perils; while wc all know that this most
weighty obligation has been almost wholly
ignored or forgotten by the Federal Govern
ment That the citizens and press of New
York begin at last to show some signs of re
cognition of the feet that the commerce of
the Lakes and this whole region are thus ex
posed, brings hope with it; although the
immediate exciting cause of their efforts be
the danger that their supplies of bread and
meat may be cut off.
Aroused so suddenly to the sense of this
imminent peril which hangs over their daily
bread, it is suggested that the Treaty with
Great Britain should not stand for a mo
ment in the way of the adoption
•and execution of such measures as
may be necessary to guard against such a
perilous extremity. It is said that the law of
self-preservation permits, and perhaps com
mands ns, to shut our eyes to any covenant
or treaty obligation we have made with Eng
land, and proceed at once to place ourselves
and the country beyond any danger of sach
terrible disasters.
Tlic people In the Northwest have (or no
short time been aware of tbeir great expo
sure to attack through the Lakes. They have
seen with deep feeling how little sense other
parts of the common country hare seemed
to hare of this danger; and that there has
been no earnest effort made by those on
whom the Constitution has devolved the du
ty, to shield them against the fearful losses and
disasters which threaten them. This Jnst
sense of overhanging peril, as may well be
believed, has been not a little increased, as
from lime to time, war with England has
been imminent, and the people in this region
have seen how utterly naked of all defence
they ore; and how the whole Lake coast,
with all its populous and growing village?
and cities, the rich country adjoining, and its
immense business and commerce, are expos
ed to the incursions and devastations of the
enemies' forces. Neither has this knowledge
of their unprotected condition, and the
apathy or neglect of the Government, filled
to make the people of the Northwest fed
most deeply that their tights and Interests
were not considered by the country as they
should be; but wore passed over in a spirit
of indifference and inattention in direct vio
lation of the letter and obligation of that
Constitution which is pledged to the com
mon defence of the whole Union.
One way of providing for the safety of the
T.tp region, is to open, by means of canals,
■ between the Hudson and the Mississippi,
channels of communication by which iron
clads can paea into the Lakes, and the naval
force necessary for their protection thus
' always insured. We know of no method of
Xakc defense, which promises to besoeffl
e’ent, and can bo afforded so cheaply. But
Whether Congress sees fit to adopt this, or
some other, let it no longer put off under any
pretext, the discharge of a duty bo impera
tive and momentous as that which requires tt
to pro* Ide the people of the Lake region wl*h
adequate and sure protection. If it has no
conscience which responds to the demands
of justice, and the obligations of- the Consti
tution, let it listen to the voice of New York
that begins te clamor about the danger to Its
bread end meet If it be deaf to the calls of
the Northwest, that the obligations of the
Union and the Constitution may be fulfilled,
let It bo aroused by the entreaties of the East,
that it may not suddenly be left to starve.
Elsewhere we publish a copy of the im
portant hill to be introduced into the House
of Representatives by Mr. Ashley, of Ohio,
Chairman of the Committee on Territories,
for the government of the rebellious districts,
and the reconstruction of the loyal State gov
ernments. The bill, nearly as It now stands,
or one substantially the same, will be ap
proved by the Committee and adopted by the
House.* It seems to be well calculated for
the purpose intended. The bill is designed
to aid and cany into effect, the President's
Amnesty Proclamation. Some such legisla
tion is invited by the President in his Mess
age, and this supplies what is wanted.
Cndjo's Cave Is the name of a new novel
about to be published by Messrs. Tilton &
Co., Boston. The author, Mr J. T. Trow
bridge, Is also the author of “Neighbor Jack
wood,” and some of the most popular contri
butions of the “Atlantic.” This story is of
rebel despotism and Union patriotism in
East Tennessee. The Boston correspondent
of the Springfield whose criti
cisms arc perhaps as reliable as any we have,
says: 4 T have read the sheets, and am sure
that, for dramatic skill and intense in
terest, few books of late years are equal
to it 'Somehow or • other we cannot
quite make up onr minds that tales of
adventure in East Tennessee, in 1861, are
qnite as real as those which Cooper relates as
occurring during the old French War or the
Revolution. Bnt.it must be the nearness
alone which weakens the enchantment Some
of Trowbridge's descriptions of border war
fare arc qnite equal to the best of Cpoper's.
Bis genius is dramatic; and the reader is car
ried swiftly, almost breathlessly, along. Some
of his characters, also, are exceedlnglygood.
The negroes, Pomp and Cndjo; Dan Pepper
-111, the poor white; Deslow, the pro-slavery
Unionist, who betrays his fellows for slave
ry's sake; the old minister; and Carl, the
Dutch boy,—arc well painted.”
-The orders for this book, on the reputation
ot the author and interesting locality of the
story, have been so numerous as to delay the
publication till a much larger edition than
was first contemplated can be prepared.
A new book of essays by Alexander
Smith, whose poems, a few years since, cre

Peter Parley's Own Story, is the life of that
friend of children, the late S. C. Goodrich, a
wen who believed that talent is not misap
plied in directing itself to the instruction and
amusement of children. Ho was emphati
cally and beyond any other American writer,
the friend and Instructor of youth—who has
led children by the hand through all the
countries of the earth, and pointed ont to
them the strange sights; who has discoursed
to them of the wonders of the skies and ■
the inhabitants of the deep, with a fascina
tion which has seized not alone the little hat
the grownup children. The present volume
narates in a pleasant, colloquial style, the
main incidents of Peter Parley's life, which
will commend themselves to thousands of
bearded meu who were boys when these
charming stories first came ont. Apart from
his own life, the book abounds with remin
iscences of the persons he met; Washington,
Jerome Bonaparte, Scott, Byron, Mrs. Si
gourney, Bralnard, Hannah Moore, Jeffrey,
Willis, Hawthorne and others. It paints in
his fresh colors, life in New England, with
its old-fashioned dances, sports, festivals,
music and political economy;. takes yon
through the war of 1812, through England
and Scotland to Paris, where he graphically
depicts the Revolution, the mob at the Made
leine, the fights at the barricades and the
sack of the TnUlcries. All the fascination
•of Parley's first works belong to this simple
story of his own life, as fpll of adventures as
his own pleasant fictions.

This volume by Dr. Hooker is the first of a
series of familiar works on the sciences, and
intended for the older scholars of Grammar
Schools, as well as for a valuable reference
and Instruction book ia the family. The frets
are presented in the lecture style, accompa
nied by a free use of illustrations from fa
miliar phenomena, thus giving an eminently
practical character to the information. The
peculiar style in which the book is prepared,
strips away entirely tbe uninteresting and
dry formula and problems of science to tbe
youthful mind, and clothes it with a charm
to the pupil, and this we consider a great
point gained in the preparation of school

Dr. Johnson somewhere expressed the
sentiment that the best kind of biography is
auUtok-grojiJiy ; and that eveiy man's life may
be better written by blmself than anybody
else could write it for him. This may not be
true to its fullest extent, bat It is undoubt
edly partially so; for there can bo hardly a
question that the most trustworthy
sort of autobiography is that which
baa been written accidentally and
un consciously, as it were, in familiar
letters, or private journals, or upon the rec
ords of official services. The life of John
Winthrop has thus been written by himself,
and the labor of Bon. Robert C. Winthrop
has been simply in so arranging the letters
and journals, the confessions and experiences
of his famous ancestor, that he shall be
found telling the story of his life in his own
words, and furnishing an ample clue to the
course and current of the rest of it. This
Mr. Winthrop has done with the affection
and reverence of a worthy son for a worthy
ancestry. The book will add much to the
historic Interest which‘attaches to New
England, and will be sought after with avid
ity by the' antiquarian, the historian, the
scholar, and by all true sons of New Eng
land. For sale by J1 R. Walsh & Ce., Chi

Tide is one of ibe most ’ contemptible and
lying books ever issued from the American
press. And no loyal man should buy a book
from or go near a publishing houstf guilty of
the deep Infamy of thrusting such a workup
on a loyal people. According to the story of
this veracious author, every Confederate of
ficer Is a gentlemanly Leonidas, while every
Federal officer is a brute, coward and ruffian;
every battle fought during the period which
his lying history covers, was a decided sue

pounds of cotton to the acre this season. The

Pulaski, Tenn M Dec. S3, fCL f
If you will lay before you a map of Tcano
see, and trace the lines of railroads that tav-.
Erse and intersect through the present theatre
of military operations, you will not fall to
discover that the town of Pulaski, the pres
ent Headquarters of the left wing of the IGth
army corps, is not entirely devoid of inter
est or importance. It has always been the
policy of onr generals ito hold wits strong
garrisons the places on the lines of railroad
near the large armies in the field, using them
both, as minor depots of supplies and as for
tified places to fall back upon in ease urgent
necessity required a retreat; such, for in
stance as Corinth Miss., when Gen. Grant
made his advance toward Holly Springs, or
Franklin, Tenn., strongly fortified and garri
soned when the army of the Cumberland
commenced active operations In Middle Ten-,
ncssec. Though both of these uses might be
made of Pulaski, there are some other rea
sons why it may he looked upon as a point
of importance. The direct railroad commu
nication wjth Nashville, which has lately been
opened by the unceasing energy of Gen.'
Dodge, and which is now being extended to
Athens,thence to Stevenson and Chattanooga,,
makes Pnlaski a central point between Nash-,
vllle and Chattanooga. The present method
of supplying the army of the Cumberland
from Nashville, by the Nashville and Chatta
nooga road, has been found In many respects
impracticable, and the work of repairing the
road between this place and Stevenson
is being prosecuted as fiist as possible.
The country through which the road runs
Is the best portion of Tennessee, much of it
has never suffered to any extent from the
ravages of war, and any amount of cotton is
rolling into the market. And our streets are
full oi the precious commodity, buyers are
here from all quarters, and it is probable
that the good people of Foloski have not
seen as much business or as much money
change hands for many years as is now being
done. The left wing of the ICth army corps,
stationed at this place, fs composed of the
oldest troops In the Western service, and the
greater part of them have but a few mouths
to serve on their first enlistment, hut the de
sire to u see the thing through” seems to be
universal among them, and the greater part
of them arc re-enlisting in the service. The
2d lowa infantry is now re-enllsting under
Major Howard, who expects to take them to
lowa in a few days, to re-organize, under the
name of the “Second lowa Veteran Regi
ment,” the other troops of the command are
following their example, and it is more than
probable that in a few months Gen. Dodge
will have in his command a veteran division.
Next spring bos been looked forward to by
the rebels as an important crisis in their
affaire, and they have fondly hoped that three
years of service in the field would cool the
ardor of American patriots, bat ills probable
that the present noble spirit which Is every
where I cing exhibited, will disconcert their
plans materially. The Ohio brigade, under
command of CoL Fuller, have re-enlisted ch
Gen. Be dge has jnst returned from Nash
ville, whe:e business of importance has re
quired his presence for some days. Geo.
Grant is in Nashville but on what business
is not generally known. Gcu. Sherman has
crone to Memphis, and will probably visit
Vickslmg. Gen. Logan has been appointed
to the command of the 15th army corps, and
wIU establish his headquarters in North Ala
bama—the exact locality not yet chosen.
Gen. Longstreet is at Rodgcrsvillc, hat as
Gen. Foster is closely pursuing him it is
probable that be will soon be'dislodged, or,
to use the vernacular of the day. 44 cleaned
out,” Military operations in Middle Tennes
see, and along the line of the railroads, ore of
an inactive nature. The rebels confine them
selves to petty robberies and acts of revenge.
Onr scouts keep posted upon all movements
of importance, and the citizens, now fully
alive to their own interests, ore co-operating
with our forces in putting down guerillas.
Detachments of mounted infantry arc kept
scouting the country. A few days ago, wlmc
Lieut. CoL Gaines was out on one of these
expeditions, he came across the rebel Major
Lamar Fontine. with fifty of his men, who
had been sent by Gen. Roddy to ascertain
how near the railroad bridge across Dnek
River was completed. CoL Gaines with four
men advanced to the house in which the Ma
jor had taken up his quarters for the night,
and succeeded in surprising them and taking
the Major and several of His men prisoners.
Major Fontine was one of Gen. Roddy's right
hand men, and his capture will occasion con
siderable chagrin among the rebs. It will be
remembered that this alajorFontine lathe

supplied Gen. Pemberton with a large quan
tity of percussion caps. He is a daring, des
perate fellow. We have a prospect of a quiet

Yesterday one of Gen. Dodge's scouts came
In who bud been taken prisoner by the rebels
and given up for one of the unfortunate, but
his daring, hacked up by a good stock of
Yankee impudence, saved him. His story Is
full of adventdre and may not he uninterest
ing to some of your readers. He started
from Pulaski on the 27th of November for
Lamb's Ferry, 40 miles below Decatur on the
Tennessee river, hut was taken prisoner four
miles from Lawrenceburg on the night of the
28th by Gen. Roddy's brigade scouts and ta
ken to’Rodgersrtlle, thence to Lamb's Ferry;
here six picked meu were intrusted with the
duty of guarding him through to Tuscnmbla;
but subsequent events proved that picked
men dp not always succeed. When about
seven miles from the river the party stopped
for dinner. They concluded to eat by reliefs,
leaving three men toguard the prisoner while
the other three were at the table. This
seemed to be the appointedtime for the pris
oner, who watching his moment snatched a
gun Irom one of the guards and succeeded in
wounding one man by a stroke with it, the
other took to bis heels leaving the astonished
guards to fire at him, but to no purpose. He
gained the woods and traveled until the uext
evening when he was again overhauled by a
company of rebel cavalry, and after skir
mishing* a few moments with them was
forced to surrender. He was taken to
Tuscumbla and tried by a Provost
Marshal and condcmed as a spy
He was then sent toGndsden, and confined
in jaiL Things by this time had (to use his
own language) become 41 rather billions,”
and he concloded that something must be
done, or his chances for life would not be
worth much. He formed a plot with his fel
low prisoners to escape, by forcing the guards,
and bad well nigh succeeded, when he was
shamefully betrayed by one of the men,which
occasioned his being closely handcuffed, and
put on board a steamer, and started for Rome,
bat adventure seemed to attend him. He
concluded again to try his lack at escaping.
The first thing to be done was to get rid of
his handcuffs, which he succeeded indolnt:
by driving out the bolt with an iron he foam i
in the engine room; his hands once free, he
was not long in concluding what his next
move would be, and when no eye was upon
him, he quietly dropped into the river, and
swam ashore unobserved, and struck out for
Lookout Mountain, which hd gained about
daylight. Here be secreted himself until
night, and again started out on his journey.
At Dodsonvule he came across a battalion of
the sth lowa cavalry, and was taken by them
to Stevenson. Alabama, from whence he had
no difficulty In getting transportation to this
place. C.W.H.
Hebei Balds—English Treaties*
1 [From the New York Tribune, Dec. 80.]
As the rebellion grows weak in military
power, its plots naturally grow desperate,and
more frequent. The Johnson's Island scheme
was perhaps not so desperate as to render a
repitltion of it impossible. It Is not neces
sary to suppose that its object was exclusive
ly or mainly the destruction of the City of
Buffalo. With three or four propellers from
the Welland Canal and a few pieces of artille
ry, the conspirators might have approached
within three-fourths of a mile of Bnflalo Creek,
near the shore, (but not in British waters,)
and would have been able to command at this
distance the entire harbor, and to burn the
shipping, canal boats, grain elevators, ware
houses, railroad depots, cars etc. There
are one hundred million bushels
of cereals that in the course of the season
float on Lake Erie. Buffalo harbor is the depot
for a large part of this trade. It contains
twenty-five elevators, and four new ones arc
building; their storage capacity is 5,370,000
bushels, with a capacity of transferring 145,-
CCO bushels an hour, which Is greater than at
. any other point in the world. A hundred
warehouses line the wharves—hundreds of
vessels and hundreds of canal boats are often
at the same time in port These vessels and
boats are loaded with various produce;
1,000,000 bushels of grain sometimes arrive
In a single day, .together u ith flour, pork,
beef, lumber &c. Elevators, warehouses,
docks and railroad depots filled
with produce and merchandise—
large quantities being • transhipped
daily. The burning of the rest of the city of
Bnflalo would not be so severe a blow to the
nation as a conflagration of that part of the
city alone bordering on the harbor. New
England raises bnt a three weeks' bread sup
ply in a year foe her consumption. The
State of New York produces grain for only
ouc-half the year for her population. The
bread comes from the West The Anglo
rebel pirates on the ocean in homing ships,
counted by millions in value, are doing less
damage than would follow such destruction
in Bnflalo. Daring the riots In this city, the
grain warehouses of the Atlantic Docks, In
Brooklyn, were a point of attack, and the
floating steam elevators of the harbor were
hurried far up the East River for security.
The same attempt, with far more disastrous
consequences, might have been made at
In view of the possibility of such catastro
phes, It ie worth while to consider the con
dition of our treaty obligations with Great
Britain In respect to navalforce on the lakes.
We cannot longer afford to leave a frontier
line of commerce so vast as ours on the lakes
entirely unprotected. The commercial inter
ests 01 Britain on the Canada side are of
email account compared with oars. The
equality of a navalforce on the lakes by each
Power is not right—is not just Ajournalin
one of the lake cities*says in tins Johnson’s
Island affair we have for our own protection
broken the treaty with England, and it calls
for a new one. , _ . - r _ r
The present treaty was Informal. Mr. Mon
roc. in submitting it to the Senate, expressed
doubts of itssufflclency, but the Senate accep

It provides for two armed Teasels on the Up
per Lakes, one on Ontario, and one on
Lake Champlain, to each Power. A paper
two years since was submitted to the Depart
ment of State, intended to show that the
phrase “Upper Lakes ** did not include Lake
Michigan as regarded the boundary line run
nlcg through the lakes were
not excluded from Lake Michiganby the treaty
provided such vessels sbouldnotgooulsidc the
thraits of Mackinaw. Argument! were drawn
la defense of this position, from modern
treaties of European Powers with Turkey,
which concede to her the right to prohibit
armed vessels from passing the Dardanelles
and the Bosphorus, and from the course of
England touching her fortress on the Straits
of Gibraltar. In 1850. the treaty of Paris dis
mantled Russian fortresses and armed ves
sels on the Black Sea, but Russia is now
building a powerful navy on the sea of Azoff,
situated, as to the Black Sea, as Lake Michi
gan is to Lake Huron. Moreover in a later
treaty with England, there was a provision
granting her the privilege for merchant ves
sels of her flag to enter Lake Michigan. •
The altered state of things on the United
States side of the boundary line, the large,
growing cities and vastly increasing com
merce, Involving millions of dollars in canals
and railroads haviog their termini on the
Lakes, while the Canadian side remains near
ly in the same condition as then, make the
treaty as to equality of naval force a one
sided affair; and now, as wo need apolice de
, fee sc, there is a necessity for an amended
treaty, at least as respects Lake Eric and Ni
agara and Detroit rivers. We want armed
steamers of great speed for the protection of
the immense commerce of Lake Erie, and
of assailable points, where the bread of
millions is in transit and a risk from the in
roads that may be made from Canada. The
British Government acknowledged that the
burning of the steamboat “Caroline,” lying
at the wharf at Schlosscr on the American
side In 1837, was a measure of necessity to
Erevent the rebellion , in Canada being aided
y Canadians who bad taken refuse in the
United States. These refugees she called
“pirates.” Lord Palmerston was Foreign
Secretary. She demanded the liberation of
Alexander McLeod, imprisoned by the coarts
of New York for participating in the burn
ing of the Caroline.
The law of self-preservation is at least
equally strong for us. It has become appar
ent that, under the text of the existing trea
ty, we arc debarred from taking the most or
dinary precautions. The circumstances in
which the treaty was made having wholly
changed, the treaty ought to bo modified ac
cordingly, or wholly abrogated. No nation
can consent to expose Sts borders as onrs arc
exposed, unless in the belief that it Is secure
from invasion, either attempted or permit
ted. Events show that we can no longer
cherish such a belief
Gen. Grant’s Congratulatory Order to
Ills Army.
Washington, Dec. SO, ISB3.
The following is Gen. Grant’s congratula
tory order to Ills army:
Headquarter Military Division 1
opthe Mississippi in tbs Field, >-
Chattanooga, Twin., Dec. 10, 1863.)
General Orders, No. 9, —The General
commanding takes this opportunity of re
turning bis sincere thanks and congratula
tions to the brave armies of the Cumberland,
the Ohio, the Tennessee, and their comrades
from the Potomac, for the recent splendid
and decisive succescs achieved over the ene
my. In a short time you have recovered from
him the control of the Tennessee River Irom
Bridgeport to Knoxville. You dislodged
him from his great stronghold upon
Lookout Mountain, drove him from
Chattanooga Valley, wrested from his deter
mined grasp the possession of Missionary
Ridge, repelled with heavy loss to him his
repeated assaults upon Knoxville, forcing
him to raise the siege there, driving him at
all points, utterly routed and discomfited be
yond the limits of the State. By your noble
heroism and determined courage, you have'
most effectually defeated the plans of the
cncmv for regaining possession of the States
ofKentucky and Tennessee. You have se
cured positions from which no rebellions
power can drive or dislodge you. For all
this the General Commandlngthanks yon col
lectively and individually. The loyal people
of the 'United States thank and bless yon.
Their hopes and prayers for your success
against this unholy rebellion are with-yon
doily. Their faith in yon will not be in vain.
Their hopes will not be blasted. Their
prayers to Almighty God will be answered,
you will yet go to other fields of strife; and
with the invincible bravery and unflinching
loyalty to justice and right which have char
actciized you in the past, yon will prove that
no enemy can withstand you, and that no de
fenses, however formidable, can check yonr
onward march.

The Frccdmeu’s Tillage at Arlington.
[From the N. Y. Eevnlng Post, Dec. JJO.]
The object with which this Tillage was es
tablished was to gather together and train to
useful employments, within Its limits, all the
fugitive blacks within the District of Colum
bia. Lieutenant-Colonel Ellis Greene, of the
quartermaster’s Department, first suggested
the plan to Mr. Stanton, who ordered him to
carry it into effect
Ue learn that there arc now at Arlington
fourteen dwellings, a church, a hospital, and
a home for the aged and infirm. The hospi
tal is empty. The dwellings, two storied,
are constructed in groups or four under each
roof, each having two rooms perfectly lighted
and ventilated, a cooking stove, a yard and
access to a well. There ore one hundred and
thirty-five children in the school; there arc
workshops in which the men arc taught to
work, as blacksmiths, wheelwrights, caroen
ters, tailors end shoemakers; cutters from
New York cut out clothing, which is made
up by the black women, in ninety days one

There arc already six abandoned farms un
der thorough culture; the crop of the last
season was two hundred tons of hay, worth
.thirty dollars a ton one hundred and ninety
one tons of corn fodder, worth twelve 'dol
lars a ton; a great quantity of potatoes and
other vegetables (distributed* among the hos
pitals of the department,) and a crop of beans
and buckwheat, were made and*secnrcd. If
guerillas bad not been permitted to drive in
the laborers from the outer farms, this har
vest would have been doubled. 'Hie enter
prise bas been more than self-supporting,
and under the efficient management of CdL
Greene the blacks have money In bank.
Speech of Secretary Stanton
At a dinner given to the soldiers at Stanton
Hospital In Washington, on Christmas, Sec
retary Stanton made a brief address, In which
he said:
Soldiers: I hope that when the next anni
versary of the day yon are now celebrating
occurs, this war will be ended, and you will
Lave returned to yonr homes and firesides.
When you shall have so returned you will be
considered as honored guests of the nation.
You have periled your lives upon the battle
field, or you have suffered in camps from the
ravages of disease incidental to great armies.
But whether you have been wounded or been
attacked by sickness, you arc equally entitled
to consideration at the hands of your country.
If you have been so wounded in battle, or
suffered from sickness, 1 will see that you
have a proper reward given you.
Soldiers: If wo can end this rebellion with
the extinction of slavery, will itnotbeagreat
triumph ? You will at the end of this great
rebellion, when making a review of,it, nave
the satisfaction of knowing that you have
aided the Government of the United! States in
discharging the duties incumbent on it when
it was in peril; and you will furthermore ex
perience the feeling that you have materially
aided to make the country free.

•Weekly Review.— Business daring the week,
on account of the holidays and the extreme severi
ty of the weather, has been unusually light, but
the general markets bare had an upward tendency
and close firm.
To-dat there were no receipts posted on ’Change
the railroads still suffering from the snow em
The receipts of Hogs at the Live Stock Yards
to-day were only 319.. of which TO were frozen to
death. There were no transactions at any of the
yards, those received having been consigned to a
shipper, who did not .offer them for sale. Of coarse
tinder such a state of affairs, the market is entire
ly nominal; but packers and shippers are still
ready hnyers at full prices.
Dressed Bogs were In but light supply, and the
offerings were scarcely enffleient to attract buyers.
The sales were therefore very light, atsC.'2#@
7.25, according to quality.
The market for Provisions still tends upwards,
hut the stringency of the money market restricts
business. There was a Cilr inquiry for Mess Pork,
and we note sales of 2.700 brls Peoria packed at
$17.75 delivered here, and $17.50 delivered at Peo
ria. City Mess Pork Is held firm at $18.00018.25.
The demand for Prime Mess Pork continues active
and we note sales of upwards of 700 hrls at $14.50
014.75 for country and city. At the close buyers
were offering $<4.75 freely, but sellers wereholdlng
at $15.00. Bnlk Meats continue In good request
and firm—with sales of Bulk Hams at B#@9c
loose; Sides, 7XO6c loose; and Shoulders at
6X®6c loose. Toere was nothing doing to-day in
English Meats, bnt the market is firm. Pickled
Dams arc higher—with sales to-day SSO tres at
9,V09;«c. A small lot of Green Hams was sold at
B#c, but there is a good demand for round lots at
B»*c. Lard was a shade higher to-day—l,9oo Ires
having changed hands at 11X013C for Prime City,
ll*£c for Prime Country, and 11# for Prime Conn
try Kettle, slightly browned. At the close the
market wasfirmatll#ol2e.
Floor remains dull. Wheat was more active and
prices ruled a shade higher; hut the.market closed
quiet. The sales were liberal, particularly of No.
S, at $1.11X01.12; No. 1, SUSOUB#; No. 2,
Red, $1.10; and Rejected Spring, at $1.02.
Corn was in better demand and more active—
with sales of No. lat 0!c; No. 3, 91>j!$92; and
New Corn, SJ<&B3#•
Oats were doll and the sales light at [email protected]#c for
No. 1, and 68X for No. 2. Bye was firm at $1.03$
1.06. Barley was neglected and dnll.
There was a more active demand for Hlghwines,

with light sales at The market closed
firm at the outside quotation.

According to partial returns and estimates col

HOGS—'Whether profitable or otherwise,it Is quite
clear that in tbe receipts to-day there has been no
Inducement offered to buyers of any sort to leave
tbe warmth of tbe stove side ic quest of bargains.
And with their usual discernment, they all seem to
have seen this and acted accordingly. Tbe yards
have consequently been left In tbe undisturbed pos
session of the attendants, and tbe few lots of live
slccC, that are r landing overfor shipment, as soon as
*lt shall be deemed safe and expedient (o send
them on. The total receipts to-day were
five cars of bogs per tbe Chicago and.
Galena Railway, consisting of abont 2IQ live and 79
frozen, and from their thin and miserable appearance
we should say that bad tbe former shared the fate of
their frozen companions, they would have beeu spared
much suffering They seemed thoroughly jaded and
emaciated from tbclr trying and pitiable Journey of
some eight days through storms that In their savage
tary seemed to treat with hitter mockery the pangs of
torture they inflicted on all exposed to their blasts.
Ko sales have been made, as nearly the whole of the
Hoes received are intended to he shipped throngh on
owners* account.
InBxxrCATiLE between 70 and 80 head arrived
within the above mentioned time on tbe Galena RalL

Attention, Soldier*! and Friends of Soldiers.
We call the attention of all having relations or
friends in the army to the fact that “lIOOFLAND'B
German Bitters” will cure nine-tenths of the diseases
Induced by exposures and privations Incident to camp
life. In the Hats, published almost doilv in the news
papers, on the arrival of the sick. It will be noticed
that a very large proportion are sufferers from debil
ity. Every case of teat kind can be readily cured by
Hooflaod’s German Bitters. Diseases resulting from
disorders of the digestive organs ore speedily remov
ed. We have no hesitation In stating that, if theM
Bitters were freely used among oar soldiers, hundreds
of lives might be saved that otqerwlse will be lost.
We call attention to the tallowing remarkable and
well authenticated cure of one of the nation’s heroes,
whose life, to use his own language, “has been saved
bp the Bitters.”
WiTTT.An»T.wwTt, Aug. 23,1993,
Mzsbbs. Jonas A Etahs: Well, gentlemen, your
.Hoofland’s German Bitters bos raved my life. Thera
la no mistake in this. It is vouched for by numbers ol
my comrades, some of whose names are appended,and
who were fully cognizant of all the circumstances ol
my case. I am, and have been for the lost four years,
a member of Sherman's celebrated battery, and under
the Immediate command of Capt. 8.-B. Ayres.
Through the exposure attendant upon my arduous du
ties. I was attacked in November last with inflitmmi.
tioa of the lungs, and was for seventy-two days in the
hospital. This was tallowed by great debility, height
ened by an attack of dysentery. 1 was then removed
from the White House, and sent to this city on board
the steamer ” State of Maine,” from which I landed on
the 28th of June. Since that time I have been about
as low as one could be and still retain a spark of vital
ity. For a week or more I was scarcely able to swal
low anything, and if I did force a morsel down It was
immediately thrown an again.
I could not even keep a glass of water on my stom
ach. Life could ufit last under these circumstances;
and accordingly tire physicians who bad been working
faithfully, though unsuccessfully, to rescue me 'from
the grasp of the dread Archer, frankly told ms that
they comd do no more for me, and advised me to see a
clergyman, and to make such disposition of my limit
ed lunds as beat suited me. An acquaintance who vis
ited me at the hospital, Mr. Frederick Stelnbron, of
Sixth below Arch street, advised me. as a forlorn bops,
to try your Bitters, and kindly procured a bottle.
From the time I commenced taking them, the gloomy
shadow of death receded, and I am now, thank Goa
for it, getting better. Though I have taken but two
bottles, 1 have gained ten pounds, and I feel sanguine
of being permitted to Join my wire and daughter, from
whom I have beard nothing for eighteen months—for,
fentlcmeu, lam a loyal Virginian,from the vicinity of
rent Royal. To your invaluable Bitters I owe the
certainty of life which has taken the place of vague
fears-to your Bitters will 1 owe the glorious privilege
of again clasping to my bosom those who are dearest
to me In life.
■Very truly yours, ISAAC MALONK.
We fully concur in the truth of the above statement,
as we had despaired of seeing onrcomrade Mr. Ualono
restored to health. _
