TCESDAT, JAMJAET 26, 1864
jpnx UP THE OLDBEGIRTENTS.
It is' now the settled determination of the
people of the North to stand by the Adminis
tration and help it fight out this war to a
successful., issue. . Copperheads, .-if they
Will not help,should at least bush their craven
cloznmoring for peace and cease any farther
outward attempts at opposing the efforts of
the Government. The way to peace is now
open and With the coming spring our armies
should -wore rapldly~and • strike effectually.
The blows should be short and sharp and the
days of the rebellion will soon bo over. With
a plavcd out currency, a discontented army, a
Jack of faith in their leaders, a large propor
tion of the people threatening open violence,
and three States knocking at the door of the
Union for re-admission, It needs only a few
more vigorous, telling blows to overthrow
the whole rotten fabric of the bogus Confed
eracy and plant anew the authority of the
Constitution and the laws.
To effect this we must present an unbroken
front to the enemy. The onlyfliread of hope
■upon which the rebels arc hangingtheir
cause is that at the expiration of the three
years' term of service our men would not
rc-cnlist Butin this they are sadly disap
pointed. Our gallant veterans are re-enlist
ing*"almost etT and we
ther aid.them by. filling up 'the places
of those who* have been killed
in battle or by disease. The splendid and
warworn regiments returning from their
horoesrdafly, must go back to the field filled
up to the maximum. They must oppose full
ranks to the depleted and wasted rebel regi
ments. With the return of Spring, tens of
thousands of new bayonets must glisten
over the border, and as the old flag once
more goes forward, victory will follow Ini its
train. The rebels can raise no more men.
We have hut begun, to touch our resources.
Pill up the regiments then and forward. The
very sight of these old regiments coming back,
filled up again, will be worth the best battle
of the war in its moral effect, and will turn
the discontent already prevailing in the South,
into despair. The rebel cause is tottering;
now is the time to strike.
BEAUTIFUL BEADING FOB COP
PERHEADS.
We reprint a remarkable article from the
Bicbmond "Whig on the proposed repeal of
the Substitute bill, and on the bill before the
rebel Congress jo force all classes between
eighteen and sbdy-firc into the army, ex
empting none bnt cripples.- The Whig de
nounces these measures as folly and mad
ness, and proceeds to show that it is utterly
beyond the power of the Confederate admin
istration to maintain a roan more in the field
than they now have. It demonstrates that a
larger army cannot he fed, dad, or supplied,
and that the industry of the South can sus
tain no farther drain of white men. * If the
proposed conscription is to be carried out,
who is to take care of the negroes who are
becoming restive and dissatisfied? A few old
men, and boys, cannot hold them in subjec
tion and keep them hard at work.
The Whig also shows that th c stock of cat
tle and horses in the rebel States is nearly
consumed. For beef the commissary is
obliged to fall back on mil eh cows. Of bacon
aud mutton the supply is -exceedingly scarce
and the owners refuse to sell for confederate
nhiuplcstcrs. Leo's soldiers have a quarter of
a pound of meat per day. The hospitals are
irregularly'furnished. East Tennessee, the
main reliance of the rebels, is In Federal
bauds, and the rebel government is driven to
seize the standing crops of whole counties on
the plea of absolute necessity. Forage Is
scarcely to be hod. Lost winter, Stuart's cav
alry was scattered all over Virginia to get
food for their horses, and this winter It is
quite worn out. In all the armies, the wont
of email arms, cannon and ammunition be
gins to be seriously felt
The railway system of the State, the Whig
declares to be utterly -and hopelessly dilapi
dated, and the rolling stock so out of repair
and worn so badly as to be almost practically
melees, on some roads.
The Whig doses:
44 Thus In the last analysis, we find wo have an
army poorly clad, scantily led, indifferently equip
ped, badly mounted, with insufficient trains, and
with barely enough of ammunition.. To remedy
the wo are going to Aouble, andif possible
quadruple, the number of men and horses, take
away every efficient master from the agricultural
districts, and leave the negroes on when both
men and horses depend a prey to
natural idleness, and with every Inducement to re
volt. If this be not Jndidal madness, tbc history
of desperate measures adopted by feeble and af
frighted coffßcQs does not present an example."
We commend the article to that class of
Copperheads who have {rivena* ••pretextfor
~JL v r i~DiuuDto the war, that the rebels
could never be subdued. It will be agreeable
reading to them. We also beg of them to
peruse the articles copied from the North
Carolina papers on the some subject dis
cussed by the Blchmond Whig. They win be
highly edified at their cheerful and sanguine
tone—at the confidence they express of whip
ping the 44 Yankees” and 44 Abolitionists”
Very soon, and gaining their 44 rights ” with
little more effort. - Indeed, it is delightful
reading matter for oar dear Copperhead breth
ren.
Wc a! 6O pub'ish an article from the North
and another from the Ra
leigh Siat'dcrJ, which should be read by all
who wish to understand the feeling towards

HIKING IN THE COTTON.
Mortars, cannon, Greek Are and bayonets
arc not the only elements In the successful
prosecution of war. They arc useful in their
way. Men arc sometimes so persistant in
their determination to outrage the require
ments of civilization, progress, liberty and
religion, that blood letting is the only process
that will cool their temperaments and bring
them to a realizing sense of duty, and in such
cases we are in. favor of physical agencies
freely administered. But the patient often
needs other remedies in addition to medicine.
So with our rebellious patients of the South.
Keep administering the iron and leaden pills,
but apply also other remedies, and
among them a rigorous use of their “ lying
cotton.” Wc hare great faith in cot
ton, which for to many years has exercised
royal prerogatives over us. We have been
so long under the sway of thcflocculcnt fiber
that wc have become well acquainted with
its character, and believe that it can be em
ployed against the rebels with tremendous
force, and that In so doing we shall be
snatching from them the very mainspring of
their power. To this'-end every restriction
should be removed from Its purchase, except
such os arc absolutely necessary. In a military
point of view. The permits which hitherto
have tended - seemingly - only to result
in corruption of the worst descrip
tion, should be revoked and a free
trade allowed, so for as It does - not
cause detriment to military operations,
Either let the business in cotton be absolute
ly free or prohibited altogether, for any other
course only induces corruption, hut, better
than all, let the trade bo, free. With the ad
vance of our armies in the spring campaign?,
immense quantities, of cotton will fell into
our hands which is now stored away in the
interior of Texas, Georgia, Alabama and Car
olina for safety. Let this'cotton be brought
into market without delay in any manner
which shall he the quickest and most practi
cal. *“
The reasons for this are almost too obvious
to mention! Every bale of cotton shipped to
England is equivalent -to <250 in gold, to
draw ogr.inst.. In this light, it would be an
advantage everyway. To ! the Government,'
because It would materially aid its finances.'
to the people, because there would be a de
preciation In the necessaries of life; to
merchants, because shipments of cotton
would save shipments of coin, and to the
country at large, because the finances of the
conntiy would be at once brought into u
healthier condition.
There is no force in the objection that green
backs will help the rebels. They will work
the opposite effect and tend, to ruin the
rebel cause. Mr. Foote, in the rebel Con
gress, acknowledges “this. He forsecs
this fact, and warns the rebels of-* the
.effect of taking greenbacks. The Eich
mond papers are vehement in their de
nunciations of mexphants who, prefer green
backs to the rebel shinplastcrs right in the
Shadow of the rebel capital Every dollar of
greenbacks which circulates in Secessla is a
loan to our Government, interest free, of
llmt muchby the rebels; If we could buy
one million bales of cotton from them, pay
ing them fifty cents a pound in legal tender,
the purchase, would amount to two hun
dred millions of dollars, and- for practical
purposes be equivalent to & loan to our
Government without interest of $900,000,000.
It would enable the fifigretaiyof the Treasury
to issue that amount more without depreciat
ing the present volume' of currency a particle.
If one half of that cotton was shipped to Eng
land It would sdl for one hundred millions'
in gold, and would entirely stop the export
of coin for more than a year; the other half
million bales .would supply our own wants
and bring down the price of cotton fabrics
at least twenty-five per cent. The export of
gold ceasing, the speculation inlt • would
measurably cease, and it would rapidly de
cline is price; the; unhealthy and dangerous
Inflation of everything would corresponding
lj come down. Inerejy respect the country
would bo a gainer. We therefore cordially
second Secretary Chase's present efforts to
swap greenbacks for cotton. The more of
Oar currency the rebel masses possess the
less motive they -will hare to carry on
their war; but they will have strong
pecuniary reasons for ending the
struggle. We say, therefore, flood the
whole South witb greenbacks, and the entire
rebel system of finance will collapse just as
surely as the receipt of cotton will strengthen
tic country, and with the destruction of
iht'irflD'JDces, their cause goes by the board
quicker even than the . hugest army could
overwhelm it. We would therefore give ever j
encouragement to a free and unrestricted
trade in cotton, and issue the most favorable
proposals to the rebels to bring in their cot*
ton, paying them in greenbacks. Be assured
the greenback has its mission - In this war, as
well as the bayonet, and that the cotton now
piled In snowy heaps throughout the gulf
States, and the black hands which have rais
ed it, if properly applied, will the more
speedily open the gate of-peace, and lead all
people out once more to theblessingg of
liberty and prosperity,
MICHIGAN SOLDIERS’ TOTING
BILL* *“
Onr Lansing special dispatches have in
formed the readers of the Tribute that abill
is before the Michigan Legislature, with every
prospect of passing, conferring upon the cit
izen soldiers of that State the right to. vote;
Itehould be promptly It is bat
sheer justice to thcßOldicre. ' Every consid
eration of right and policy demand that the
Jjfll he passed. It is useless to multiply argu
ments showing the propriety and necessity of
such an act. The Copperheads oppose the
bin, bnt for no other than the miserable rea
son that the soldiers will not vote their ticket
if enfranchised. And why will they not vote
the Copperhead ticket ? Simply because it is
a disloyal ticket and they are Un!on men to
the back bone, sworn to support the flag of
their country, and to crush traitors wherever
found. Asa consequence they naturally hate
and despise the sympathizers of traitors. For
this and no other reason do the Copperheads
resist the passage of the bill conferring upon
tb£ soldiers of Michigan the right to take
part in the elections of that State. If they
were generally Copperheads not a ’ voice in
that disloyal organization would be raised
against the bill. The ciy of unconstituUon
allty would never be heard from them. The
sufficient answer to that objection is, let the
bill be passed and Its constitutionality tested
by the courts when the proper time comes.
If ihc Copperheads believe that the Supreme
Court of Michigan will declare the soldiers'
voting bill null and void it is their true poli
cjjto ktit pasß and say nothing against it
and thereby retain the friendship of the few
soldiers who still stick to that party; and
avoid the odium of placing themselves In open
hostility to the defenders of the country. Bnt
W they have no faith that the" court will over
rule the law, bnt on the other hand believe it
will sustain the constitutionality of the bill,
in what an attitude are they placed in oppos
ing a constitutional act of such manifest jus
tice and necessity ?
We observe that the organ of Jeff Davis in
tiffs city is greatly exercised in-mind lest
Governor Blair may neglect to veto the bill If
it passes. Let the secession concern keep
cool; Gov. Blair will attend to his own busi
ness without the advice or assistance of the
“ fire-in-the-rcar" organ of treason.
Transportation of
tlio South.
An investigation is about being bad of tbc
prices paid for marine. transportation In the
Department of the South and elsewhere. It
is known that certain steamers have been
paid for as many as ten or fifteen times over,
and are still being paid for at the same or
hardly less exorbitant rates. These steamers
are mostly in the hands of New York Cop
perheads, and the investigation will be sur
prising in its developments/ There is now a
claim before the authorities forpayingont for
one of these steamers lost through the care
lessness or design of her captain, and it can
be proved in this case that, while eleven
thousand dollars would' have been an ample
price for the boat, over two hundred thous
and have actually been paid for her.
This vessel was run ashore and lost, and
the owners arc now here to recover $13,009,
her alleged value.
The Tax on Spirits,
The investigations *of the Committee of
Ways and Means on the taxation of,spirits
has developed much interesting information.
The annual consumption of spirits, as shown
by the New York trade, is about 100,000,000
of gallons. By the census of 1850, 80,781,557
gallons were produced in the loyal States
alone. Under the Excise law, tax was paid
np to October 80,18(W. no,«»o,«ow gallons.
—xi.io i*. -<• •®«roc } largely below the year’s
consumption, and is to be explained by the
confusion incident to the earlier working ot
the act, and particularly by the difficulty of
discriminating between stock produced be
fore and after Sept. 3, 1805. The monthly
collections of revenue have steadily increased
and for the months of July, August, Septem
ber and October, 1803, the receipts oh spirits
averaged $822,092,33, or at tbc rate of $9,-
875,907.96 per annum, representing $483,793.-
40. For November and December the returns
were much larger.
•Hi© Corse of Guerilla Warfare.
The South, which has been so eager to arm
and equip every cutthroat who chooses to
prey upon his neighbors, and invest the most
cowardly wretches with the dignity and im
munities oi soldiers,, engaged in honorable
warfare, arc learning, to their cost, that free
booters and murderers know but slight dis
tinction between friend and foe. . We are not
surprised to observe, therefore, that Mr.
Miles, of South Carolina, on the 17th inst,
introduced a bQI to repeal the act authorizing
partiznn rangers, approved April 21, 1862.
But suppose the act repealed, will the help
less people, whom these guerillas lire by rob
bing, be able to pat them down ? Be that as
it may, we hail this procedure as an evidence
of returning sanity In the South.
” The progressive party of Switzerland,
like that of every other country of Europe,
has been, from the beginning of our war,
unanimous in its sympathy with the cause of
the Union, and especially with the Emanci
pation policy of President Lincoln. The
chief* association of the Progressive party,
the “ Helvetia,” at its General Assembly,
held at Berne in September, 1863, unanimous
ly passed a resolution to send an address to
President Lincoln, expressive of the sympa
thy of the Progressive party of Switzerland
with the measures adopted for the abolition
of Slavery. Mr. Eytel of Vaud, a member of
the Central Committee of the Helvetia, and
likewise ©f the National Connell (Senate) of
the Swiss Confederacy, was charged with
drawing up this address.

The Old Franklin Press.
The Newport Jfemiry of Saturday says
In 1859 we sold the old Franklin Press to
John B. Murray,Esq.,ofNcwTork,he agree
ing to place it at the Patent Office in Wash
ington or some equally public and safe place,
onr desire being, not so much to secure the
liberal sum offered us to secure its preserva
tion for future generations, as It was the first
Jreas upon which Benjamin Franklin worked,
rom the time of sale until last week wc had
lost all trace of the Press, but now wc learn
that Mr. Murray has decided to present It to
She Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic Asso
ciation, and on Monday next, the 158 th anni
versary of the birth day of Franklin, the pre
sentation wIH be made, and the Gon. Robert
C. Winthrop will receive it in behalf of the
Society.
ThisactofMr. Murray win be gratifying
to many who have desired its preservation,
rnd although Newport should have retained
it, Boston ia next entitled to it, for there it
was first used, having been sent from Eng

Trowbridge.
Some of our contemporaries ask who is
“Trowbridge,” whose letters from New York
on blockade-running were recently captured
and published. N. P. Trowbridge was former

a negro-driver, became next a negro-trader,
and need to visit Virginia annualy to buy
slaves for the Georgia .market. In that way
he made a fortune and became what is called
by northern snobs a “Southern gentleman.”
He has been out of the negro-trading business
for some years. Sontteifwho is mentioned
in the letters, was formerly Vice-President of
a New York Insurance Company of which one

TIIB SPIUIT DUTIES.
In Committee of the Whole, yesterday, af
ter I had mailed my letter, Fernando Wood's
amendment to the Bevenue Bill Was adopted
by 85 ayes to SO nays.
The amendment is as follows:
Provided further. That all spirits on hand for
sale, whether distilled prior to the date of this act
or not, shah be subject to the rates of duty provi
ded by this act, from and alter the 12th day of Jan
uary, 1864, except that spirits which have been al
ready taxed under the law approved July 1,1862,
shall not bear more than the additional or in
creased tax provided for by this act.
An. amendment.was also adopted, placing
an additional tax of twcnty ccnts per gallon
on adulterated' spirits, sold os whisky,'bran
dy, wines, &c. • This rote is a great blow to.
speculators who have purchased large qnanti- ;
ties ot spirits on which the duty .was paid,-
and on all those who hold large quantities of
duty-paid^' 1 The'totalvaliic of all kinds of
distilled, liquors manufactured in the United
States ,iii 1860, was over twenty-four millions
of dollars, and in 1863,' it is expected the rev
enue alone,,at CO cents per gallon, will reach
$25,000,000/- So - that it will he seen, great
and absorbing interest Is takcn In this ques
tion. -'lndividuals are now here, some of
tbiem representing capital invested In spirits
to'the amount of nearly a million ot dollars.
The Peoria distillers have a delegation here,
and as that county manufactures probably
more than all the remainder of the State,
these gentlemen represent a large amount of
capital in distilling. The product and value
of spirits in 1860, as per census report, were
distributed as follows:
i . - ■!Gallons.Valno.
New England States 4,028,900 •$1,518,520
Uiddle States 87,188,199 19,702,803
Western States 44,716,193 10,937,591
Oregon and California 803,205 883,410
Southern States 12,241,451 8,715,467
Illinois, in 1860, was the second State in the
manufacture. It will probably now be the
first, viz: " ' ‘•
Gallons.
New York, per annum . .21,1123,752
Illinois, “ “ ......15,165,760
Ohio, ** “ v 15.140,475
Kentucky, where so much “Bourbon" Is
supposed to come from, makes but 3,000,000
gallons of spirits per annum, altogether.
There is a good deal, of excitement among
the holders of spirit to-day, and they say that
the Bevenue Bill, os amended, will never pass
both ’ houses; that Fernando Wood is only
holding out for a price, &c., &c. They may
be right, forlt .is impossible, now-a-days, to
predict what a legislative body will do twen
ty-four hours ahead. It seems to me, howev-
that the odds are heavily against them,
judging from the. heavy majority in favor of
Wood's amendment.
MEMORIAL FROM CHICAGO DISTILLERS.
Luring "the debate on the spirit duty, on
motion of Mr. Arnold, the following state
ment from distillers of Chicago was read from
the Clerk's desk:
The undersigned, distillers of the city of Chica
go, would respectfully present to the Committee
on Revenue the following facts, in relation to the
distillation of hlghwines:
In the city 01 Chicago there aro font distilleries,
which. In the aggregate, consume daily seven thou
sand two hundred and fifty bushels of grain, of a
Suahty mostly unfit for any other use, producing
tietefrom about thirty thousand gallons of high*
wines. In the sheds of said distilleries there are
at present seven thousand bead of cattle in a half
fattened condition. The question prescutcdto the
Committee is, simply, bow to derive tne greatest
amount of revenue from the hlghwines with the
least burden to the manufacturers, and we propose
to present some data to enable the Committee to
arrive at a proper eolation of the question.
We think that revenue, to be productive, should
begraduated m such a manner that the largest
amount can be raised npon given articles, ana the
manufacturer still be able to continue thclrprodac
tion. So soon as the amount of the excise levied
npon any article, coupled with the cost of its man
macture, exceeds its price In the market, then the
manufacturer must stop producing. - This conclur
eltm is inevitable, since no person in his sober sen
ses will continue to sink his capital merely (br the
patriotic purpose of paying revenue to tbc Govern
ment.
To illustrate the argument: let ns take a distil
lery running one thousand bushels or grain and
making tour thousand gallons of higbwinea per
day; such a one now pays to the Government a
daily excise of §£oo. when this was lint laid, so
heavily did it press upon manufacturers of hieh
wlacs that some were compelled to ran their dis
tilleries for alcohol for a period of six months, for
foreign exportation, before the trade of the coun
try became assimilated to even the comparative
low excise of twenty cents .upon the gallon, and
enabled them to manufacture Mchwlnea for home
consumption. Judging from this fact, we are ol
the opinion that If the high excise of between sixty
Cents and one dollar be laid npon highwinos it will
result in shutting up every distillery in our city, so
soon as, by the manufacture of alcohol, they can
get their balf-lattcned beeves out of their bams
without total loss. On the contrary, should a tax
of fortv cents be laid by the Government, It will
enable the mannfactureMo continue hls business,
and not close bis distillery..
We ask the committee whether they will recom
mend a high excise, thus closing onr distilleries
and cutting off the revenue to the Government, or
will place the excise at such a figure as will enable
us to continue our business and pay a large reve
nue to the Government.
We are willing to pay all onr manufacture will
stand, and to do onr best,-hi common with our fel
low-citizens, to bear the burdens of the Govern
ment; but we strongly protest against a taxation
fjcdictolta dunciertiul - ... i cblUi3
Wc add the following figures to show how mnch
revenue Is now paid by onr distillers In Chicago,
and what is proposed for them to pay.
There are daily manufactured In the dty thirty
thousand gallons, which, at twenty cents per gal
lon, produces a revenue of SC,OK), equal to the
yearly sum of $1,500,000.
b'ow i/a fax of forty cents per gallon belaid, it
will most probably be paid by distillers, and the
Government will derive from onr city alone the
enormous snm of $3,600,000. Are the committee
prepared by high excise to prevent this snm from
going into the Treasury of the Government I

OATH OF LOTALTT.
The refusal of the Senator from Delaware,
Air. Bayard, to hike this oath is still the sub
ject of discussion in the Senate. Mr. An
thony of Rhode Island cited in support of
the oath the opinion of Chief Justice Mar
shall In the case of McCulloch ts. the State
of Mainland. The Chief Justice said:
“ The oath which might be exacted—that to
Cdclityto the Constitution— is presented, and no
othercanbcreGoiredj.Tet, be would be charged
with insanity who should contend that the IcJHs
iclnre might not superadd to the oath directed by
the Constitution such other oath of office as its
wisdom might suggest.”
To an unbiased observer, it would seem
that Mr. Bayard’s objection to the oath Is
made in behalf of rebels, who when in a mi
nority had long coerced the country to their
views, and whose friends, such os Messrs.
Bayard and Garriit Davie, ore still endeav
oring to keep open the way by which they
may continue that system of coercion indefi
nitely.
AMERICAS? COLONIZATION SOCIETY.
This society held its annual meeting in Dr.
Sunderland’s church last evening. J. H. 6.
Latrohe, Esq., took the chair. In his speech
betook the ground that there was now more
reason than ever that colonization of the ne
gro to Liberia should take place. Instead of
800.000 free negroes, we would now have •
4,000,000; and they would stand in the same
position at the South that the free
negroes do now at the North. They
would be a proscribed class. The.
South would be settled by free,' white
inhorers, cs the West now is, and there
would arise a contest between them and the
negro. The press, the pulpit , and the plat
form are now in lavor of the negro. But he
does not come in contact with them to excite
their prejudices. But be docs come in con
tact with the German and Irish laborer, and
he (Mr. Latrohe) would rather hear a good
opinion of the negro from the German and
Irish laborer than from the editor or the
] reachcr, so far as the ultimate good of the
negro was concerned., It is upon these peo
ple jthat the happiness of the negro rests,
&C.T
Air. "Wheeler, of Maryland, and Dr. Gurley,
of New York, also made speeches in favor of
colonization.
“WAITING FOR EVENTS.”
The declaration of Mr. Drouyn de I’Huys,
French Minister of Foreign Affairs, to Mr.
Dayton when . .the latter remonstrated with
him on the subject of the Roebuck and Lind
say attempt to induce Napoleon to interfere
in onr affairs. Is looked upon here as no doubt
the train. M. Dronyn de PHuys sold that
Napoleon* did not intend at that time to ac

“DEMOCBATIC” CAUCUS.

It was the largest they have yet had. Some
sixty Senators and Representatives were

[Special Correspondence Chicago Tribune.] ■
fix. Louis, January 31,1894.
. The cold term has had its fluctuations du
ring the week, but still retains.its hold on
the harbor, .and checks any military move
ments of importance throughout, tho State,
•or its contiguous territory in Arkansas.
Last Saturday the city was in u stats of thaw
and the mildness of the weather induced the
steamboats to' try and cut ont a channel in
the river for the purpose of towing steamers
now at the lovee to : the opposite shore.
The work was stopped,' however, by tbo
second cold snap, which followed during the
night,and the next morning the ice was rigid
again. Ever since, the teams have continued
to cross on tho ice the same os usual, and the
harbor is sealed with the firm hand of King
Ice. ... . . ; ,- -
There has been, tremendous, suffering In
th’c interior sinco-tho cold term-set in, and
.the stories of the suffering, of lire 'stock al
most surpass'bcllcfr "Not less than' twenty
fivc.thoiusimd hogs have frozen •to death oh
and off the* railroads. One shipper. lost 8,000
head on the North 'JHssburi Railroad. The
danger irom'ihc severo . weather
computation. Trains on that road were stalled
in snow,and hydisablcd engines nearly a fort
night, and all that time there was ho mail rc
celvcd herc from St Joseph or the country
west of Chillicothe. This extraordinary vis
itation,' superodded to the misery , caused by
the war and by guerillas, bos afflicted West
ern Missouri, with an unparalleled suffering,
which must forever cause the winter of 1804
to‘be remembered with a shudder. There are
instances mentioned of whole families freez
ing to death on the open prairies, in booses
..top, and thcimppssihQlty. of.communication
with the endangered residents rendered tho
suspense between expected relief and death
. horrible to imagine.
Little need bo said of the military situation.
There are plenty of rebels returned from Dix
ie,' who need watching, and who are sospi*
dously watched by onr soldiers. All present
apprehension of a rebel raid from Arkansas
.or any other quarter has passed away. The
weather is too much, even for guerillas. The
Western part of the State is subject to raids
from the vicinity of the Indian Territory, on
ly |as the Osage will soon be a foaming tor
rent, and that is a barrier to an advance from
'Arkansas to thchcart of the State. Oar cavalry
are still, however, acting upon the Irishman’s
principle of hitting a rebel bead whenever
they sec it, and consequently, in this peri
od of dullness, they do manage to pick up a
large number oi stray guerillas, and knock
ing ibcip in the bead. Horse stealing has
temporarily ceased, partly on account of the.
exhaustion of the stealable horses, anil parl
ly tbroagh the vigilance of our officers in
preventing it.
Tho political situation Is not so easily dis
posed of All parties, excepting the radicals,
arc in a chaotic state—the . radicals, alone
maintaining a firm and consistent ground.
The conservatives and copperheads find it
hard to fuse, though they are united in op
position to the radios on State questions.
The conservative ofirancipation leaders are
groping in the dark, while the copperheads,
knowing that they constitute two-thirds of
the opposition to tho radicals, arc vainly en
deavoring to organize a parly machinery
which shall practically compel the conserva
tives to join them in local elections. They
arc having a family quarrel on this subject,
but the upshot will be that tho truly loyal
conservatives, who hate the rebels, will bo
forced into tho ranks of the radicals. The
approaching Presidential election will pre
sent the radical question to the people of
Missouri in a new aspect. It will become a
national question, and they must take sides
with the Vallandlghammcrs or the patriots.
The question of Mr. Lincoln’s nomination
is bcginnlngto excite more than usual inter
est. The extreme, radicals, through tho
Germanpapcrs of this city, openly declare
that they will not support Lincoln, except
ing in an almost, impossible contingency.
They say many bard things of Mr. Lincoln,
unnecessarily, and these sayings are treasured
up by the copperheads as rare models of com
fort. It is impossible to say how the party
feel throughout the State. The President is
cursed with a set of officials In Missouri
whose praise is death in the eyes of the radi-
and they have already injured his cause
by assuming the position of bis champions.
According to present appearances, everything
depends on the shape political matters assume
during the next six months. The radicals of
Missouri will not allow any disloyal roan of tho
Gov, Seymour stripe, or any pro-slavery man
of the McClellan stripe, to be elected, if their
votes can prevent it
What is the matter with the order to re
move Schofield ? This question is asked • al
most every day, and the answer is yet want
ing. Thcro is a well grounded conviction
here now that the confirmation ofGcn. Scho
field’s nomination will bo defeated in the
Senate by a vote of two to one. There
will be evidence enough of Schofield’s
pro-Blaverviem to convict ulm twenty times
v * ci* ii mat is all that la -minted. By the way,
the General is expected to return here in a
few days. His private letters are sent from
Washington to *bls office in this city, and this
is accepted os evidence that he will not bo re
moved by the President, in spite of the tslkto
the! contrary. The expose concerning the
features of negro enlistments in this State
has annoyed Schofield’s'friends more than
anything that bas been made public. They
were busy claiming credit for the progress of
negro recruiting, when the arrival or Robert
Dole Owen suddenly stopped their months,
and speedily revealed the true state of the
case
A case of persecution Ins been brought to
light which will shortly be ventilated by the
Legislature relating to the treatment of com*
pony C ,of the Oth infantry, M. S. M., Gen.
Guitars old regiment. • An order has lately
been issued from the State Adjutant General's
office, transferring this company to General
Fisk's command, with instructions to divide
ihc'mcn In equal numbers and send them to
the 2d and Sd Infantry, M. S. 31., and to mas
ter their commissioned officers out of the
service. The men are still at Schollcld Bar
racks, and in such a mutinous state that Gen.
Fisk has represented to headquarters that
force and handcuffs will be required to carry
out the instructions. Now it might he sup
posed after this recitdTthat these men were
guilty of some-horrible crime,or at least a se
rious breach of military discipline. Yet, on
the contrary, the men have never been ar
raigned on any charge, and have never been
charged with any oflenco - whatever. Nor Is
there a scrap of evidence on hand explaining
this treatment or giving any .clue to the mo
tives of Gen. Guitar or the Governor in order
ing this breaking up of the company.'' The
supposed cause of theirpersccution is * their
solid radical vote at the last election. Though
every one of them is a resident Missourian

The conservative politicians ore exceeding
ly vexed because they failed to secure in sev

on trade between St Louis and the interior
of the State. They fall to consider the dif

continue their calumnies against Secretory

Blorc Brisk Again—Passengers taken

Branch of Blockade Banning.
[Correspondence of the N. Y. Tribune.]
Nassau, Jan. o.—There arc now in the chan
nel here some nine blockade runners, seven of
which came in after successful trips, all re
cently, and two came back empty, getting in
hero this morning. One of the successful
ones, the Scotia, also got in to-day. lam as
sured here that blockade running has been
livelier for the last three weeks than for any
time for months past. Of course the busi
ness and the character of the vessels is no
secret here. Among those now here is the
celebrated “Alice,” which claims to have
made over forty successful trips. ‘We went
aboard of her. She is Glasgow-built, fast
cud light; looks like one of yonr Sound
steamers, and claims that -she is too fast for
even the Vanderbilt,
The Corisca was hoarded by the Vanderbilt
early yesterday morning, which created a flat

young German-looking man wrote an unpro

couple of blockade-running steamers, and tho
black pilot who boarded the Corsica brought
the cheering news to him that one of them
had been captured within a few days, and tho
other had just blown up. He was received
with thecommiscration of a collapsed great

WHY DE BOW WAS IMPKISO.IiED.
A Kew Corner Stone for the South.
Cotton No Longer King.
It is a fact not generally known that
Deßow, the Southern Reviewer and the only
man at the South possessing attainment suf-’
ficient to edit a first class review, has been
imprisoned by Jeff Davis and his Review sup
pressed in consequence of an article going to
show that cotton was no longer King.'' An
article based upon indisputable figures and
facts.
The following arc the more important por
tions of the article wliich have caused De-
Bow’s incarceration:
. It is true we have believed that cotton is
king; it is undeniable that wo possessed a
monopoly for its production, arising out of a
variety of causes, but it is not true that it
will grow nowhere dee.-. Indeed, we find
that the production of it in -rations coun
tries is increasing in a geometric ratio, and
that in a year or so tho South will no * longer
.bo needed -to enpply the commerce of the
globe, with what we vainly hoped would grow
nowhere else, i
Shall ive not leant from our enemies?
What are the causes of their prosperity ?
Why do even the laborers of the North live
with a degree of comfort often unknown'te'
the wealthy planters oftho South?; • :
The statistical reports accompanying the
census of 1800 establish fully the results, of
material conditions; and, if we admit that
the people of the North have really hardly
felt the war up to this point, wo must look
to and examine the material conditions which
surround them.
' They cannot be more prosperous because
thereis no slavery; certainly ft is cheaper to
have a slave who labors for yon than to labor
yourself; therefore, slave labor Is the more
economical, or rather it was before the time
of Henry A. Wise and John Brown. Consid
ering the present condition ol the country,
and prospectively, also, it may well be sap*
posed, es it already is by many In the slave
States, that it actually may be more econom
ical to labor for ourselves than to maintain
nwrrocs for that purpose.
We have taken to raising cereals, and have
succeeded so badly as to make it a matter of
doubt whether wo will not have eaten every
thin!: before the time of greens; which, when"
boiled with jowl, arc so prized by the First
Families of Virginia,
In the meantime, the production of cotton
Is slipping away from ns, and we have already
slipped away • into unknown depths, and
are drifting to a fearful and to on uncertain
lulnre,’.
The people of tbc North live comfortably
—more so, indeed, than the majority of tbo
slave owners in the South. They educate
thfeti children, and teach them that there is
no dishonor in employing cither their hands
or,their heads; and I say boldly, cvenagaiust
onr prejudices, I think they are right in that.
We know that the turnip crop of England
is now by for more valuable than any other
cultivated by the English, although it has be
come so recently. In regard to tho compara
tive productions of tbc people of the North
and of the South,-os given by the ccnsna re
port, we observe in those common to both
regions-that the widest divergence exists in
regard to milch cows.
• In the North the ratio of increase of milch
cows was slightly In excess of tbo ratio of
Increase of population between the years 1830
and 18C0. . In the. South there was an'actual
deficiency in the ratio above stated of 431,-
501! In proportion to the ratio of Increase
of, population, the Chivalrous-State of South'
Carolina is deficient In milch cows, 01,700!
As her decadence is far greater than that o
any other State, and her deficiency in the ra
tio of milch cows to the population is the
greatest, may wc not suppose that either the
deficiency indicated, orsome cause coincident
to it, has been the rain of that State ?
People must drink something. If they
cannot get milk, naturally they take to whis
ky, and wc may well lament the result. The
subjoined tables show plainly that the de
crease of milch .cows in proportion to the
population indicates a precarious condition
of Eociety; and, if it has not led directly to
the rebellion, the causes of the decrease of
milch cows ore coincident and analogous, at
least, to it.
In the slave States, tabulated in 1850, there
was a milch cow to every 3.4 persons. In the
free States, tabulated, one for every 3.7 per
sons. In 1860, In tbc slave States, one to ev
ery 3.G persons, or a slight gain of tbo pro
portionate number of milch cows.
The wont of good meadow lands in most of
the slave States, the poor and insufficient
quantity of food usually given milch cows,
the unsheltered condition m which they arc
kept and the neglect of them by the negroes,
would make tbc yield of milk less than one
half per each cow of those In the Northern
States. This appears to be shown,by the
amounts of batter and cheese produced.
Mr. Dc Bow then gives in a tabular form
the amonnt of bnttcr and cheese produced
and the number of milch cows in the free and
slave States and adds;
“We see In the above our rood to progress;
cotton has failed or wilMhilna: the negro
has failed or 'Will fail.na; It is idle to hope
longer to enjoy peacefully the proceeds of his
labor when at this moment eighty thousand
of his color ore organized and hold arms In
their bands to tree their fellows. The longer
the war Is protracted the more violently'will
slavery be destroyed. For two years and a
half we have waged war, and lost more than
half the territory over which we asserted
jurisdiction; the supply of cattle no longer
comes from Texas, nor does cotton escape
longer from the frontier to famish ns sap
plies. The Mississippi bears a hundred gun
boats, half of them iroa-clads, that effectual
ly prevent onr occupation of any point along
its entire course, or even the passage of it
except under cover of darkness and by stealth.
“The fruitful valleys of Ken tacky and of
Tennessee have been desolated by, war, and
archcldbythecncmy. Arkansas, a large part
of Louisiana, of Mississippi, of North Caro
lina and Virginia have been held or arc now
held by the enemy, and have been exhausted
by the supplies drawn by the contending
forces. Nor con we regard Alabama. Geor
gia, South Carolina or Texas exempt from
the march of heavy armies now organizing
for purposes of invasion. *
We will say to Congress and to President
Davis that a careful study of the last ’* Cen
sus Beport of the United States” will correct
or destroy many perturbations in their minds
as well as our own. Let them legislate so as
to Increase the number of cows and think no
more of the negro. The land, then, instead
of being desolated by war, and the inhabit
ants gaunt with privations and misery, will
flow literally with milk and lionoy, as In
yore.
A Census taken now, as recommended by
his Excellency Mr. Davis in the same manner
as that of 1800.. over the districts where it
might ho effected, would show, plainly the
waste of war. Bow many men between the
ages of eighteen' and fifty would be found
winling? How many peaceful, industrious
inhabitants would he found absent, having,
through a thousand channels, found their
way Into the free states, actually filling np the
houses in every part of that land, so that
none are 1 untenanted? How many of the
houses in the region passed over by the con
tending armies would now he found occu
pied? Bow many negroes would be found
absent, ready to return with muskets in
tfceir hands? How many horses, cattle,
sheep, hogs, &c., would be found remain
ing? What has been-tbo produce of onr
fields last year in cotton, sugar, com, flour,
peas, potatoes, cattle and bacon, and -what
amount remains unconsamcd?
“But aboTe all,-what progress have we
made? Is the slave power more secure than
before we seceded ? Are wo in such a con*
ditlon as to promise ourselves even with re
pudiation or all debts, both at home and
abroad, exemption from duties and high tax
ation? What have we to hope for, both as
HgofdS Sj£TCT' r or the prospects of tluj
Southern Confederacy ? ” x
FROM THE 15TR ARMY CORPS
A Glorious Record of Illinois Roys
[Special Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.]
Camp op Fxptbbntii Abmt Cobps, i
Scottsboho, Ala., Jan. 8,1EG4. f
We have been busily volunteering as vete
rans, Day before yesterday only sixty of the
48th Illinois infantry had volunteered, and
this morning there has been sworn into the
United States service four hundred and ten
men' for three years “or the job.”
It is the proudest record of the war, and
one that history furnishes no parallel to. Men
of the 15th army corps, (and the 4Sth Illinois
regiment is'the first of this corps that Tolnn
teered,) men that, daring the three months
just past, have marched eight hundred miles
through Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia,
fought two battles and followed* up two
routs, finishing the catalogue of thelrvicissl
tTides and trials by morshlng from Knoxville
to Bridgeport, one hundred and seventy-five
miles, without shoes, stockings, or rations,
and in many instances, using their trowsers
and drawers for the purpose of keeping their
torn and bleeding feet from the frozen ground
and sharp rocks, arriving at Bridgeport with
their ragged banners, tattered garments, and
shirts worn for thirty days, because they
have] not stopped long enough to wash them;
with a beaten, dispirited but not subjugated
foe in their direct frofit and with every pros
pect for other campaigns akin to and like the
last,, under their eyes and evident to him
whose perceptions are dullest. ro-enUst for
•‘three years longer or the war.

You know the 15th army corps is led by
the “renegade” John A. Logan, the man the
Vallandinghammcrs say sold his Democratic
birthright for the pottage of an Abolition
Major General.
That “renegade” will one day take back to
their homca twenty-five thousand Egyptians
that will whip, at'the ballot-hori (and. If
needs be. any other way,) those Judas-kin

A New Line of Propellers Between Bnffnlo
and Detroit—Another Between Sarnia and
Chicago.
[From tbo Detroit Advertiser, 23d.]
With the opening of navigation, several now lines o {
propellers will commence running on oar lakes, two
of them in conjunction with prominent railroads. Wo
understand that a number 01 gentlemen in oar city
and elsewhere, connected with the New York Cen
tral • and Michigan Central roads have par
chased eight propellers of the Western Transporta
tion- Con puny, and propose to start a dally line
from tills city to Buffalo. The propellers bought by
tbf tu are tbe Saginaw, Omar Pasha, HUnols,'Maydow
cr, Dunkirk, Mary Stewart, Missouri and Marquette.
To this line of staunch boats one - or two new propel-
Jars will be added. One la now building at Cleveland,
and jwlH cost over SBO,OOO. She wllibeaflrst-clag*
hoatin ail points, and contain tbe best of passenger
accommodations. It is probable that still another one
will be added to the -lino in the course of the year.
The line will he tbe property of a joint-stock compa
ny, hat as yet no organization has been perfected and
no officers chosen. - -
We also understand that tbe Grand Trunk ro.idpro
poses to run a dally line of propellers during tbe com
ing season, between Sarnia and Chicago, for freighting
naiposcs. Of the propellers that will belong to this
line, their number ond names,,we have no Informa
tion.' The details of the organization of these new
companies will be laid before the public in due time.
There esn he no donbt that the opening of navigation
intpiicgwill develop an unprecedented activity in
tbe shipping interests of onr lakes.

Cheese Alabins in New York.
A convention of-dairymen was recently held la
Rome, New York, In which nine counties la the cen
tral and western part of the State were represented,
and tbo aggregate number of cows was reported at
514170. The dairies arc nil conducted on what la term
ed “ the factory system,” which Is “run” by an associ
ation of farmers, whose members furnish at the facto
ry daily a certain amonnt of milk, and for tbl* receive
n proportionate quantity of tbo cheese or tbc avails
thereof, but in most cases the milk is sold at the fhc
'tcry by the quart or the pound. A dairy in Courtland
county, consisting of 1,400 cows, is thought tQL.be the
largest in the world. Of these, one man, the proprie
tor of the dairy, keeps C2I cows. He commenced thir
ty years ago with 15 cows, when ho got live cents por
tionnd for cheese, “on credit.” Cheese Is his sneclall
y, and he does not even moke the hatter used by bis
own family.. _ •

BOGS—The receipts of hogs at the various yards
since Saturday amount to abont 1.500 head. There has
been little of any Imp:ovemeot In the tininess and de
pression with »hlch market closed on Saturday,
and considering that the same restrictions on the

coaid hardly have been expected that there would be.
The entered sales amount to 2,213 head, which
have been' taken chiefly by packers at
prices ranging from S4XS®6XS, bat chiefly at $505.65
9 ICO ns. Nearly all the business transacted since the

atqc. From the list of sales appended It'wll) be seen
lhatuo alteration has taken place la the quotations of

ference to buy, and beyond the actual necessities for
present consumption there U no demand. One ol tho
finest, and probably the heaviest, lot of Hogs
received' this season are now at'the" Cottage
