The news from the South via Richmond Is
in the highest degree important. Ab con
elubive proof of the extremity of the rebels,
vc now hare Gen. Lee’s order to his half
starved ragamuffins, eking ont their short
rations with orations, as if empty vauntinga
of an infamous cause would fill empty bellies.
Then, too, wc have thrilling proof of the
fruitage of discontent and mutiny in the rebel
armies, caused by privation and distrust in
their cause. The garrison of Fort Morgan,
the principal defense of Moblleßay, break out
into revolt, and turned the guns oftbefort
upon the rebel war vessels sentdown to quell
tbc uprising. The mutineers seem to have
Ticcnjovcipowered by a surprise, and were
shot; but the leaven of their example will
•extend its influence far and wide. Further
thou this, the tone of the rebel press, the ac
tion of the rebel Congress, has mnch the tone
of a forlorn collection of the survivors on
a e inking pirate vessel, debating ways and
means to keep above water a little longer.
The Federal force at Pascagoula, Mississip
pi, is so located as readily to co-opcrate with
'the movement that is being mode across the
♦State, doubtless to-crush Mobile. From the
tenor of the dispatches, elsewhere, it looks
ns iflhcrc were forces at work both within
and without for rebel discomfiture in that
The result of the Hale investigation wQI
be salutary if it henceforth remind our Legis
lators that there are public decencies to be
observed that sometimes conflict with their
private professional interests. The spectacle
of an United States Senator, with his pocket
plump with fees, pleading for the release of a
rebel, or a peculator upon the government is
not a pleasant nor honorable one.
O’old in New York was dull and declining
yesterday at 1571-8,

It is astonishing what a fine moral effect
these very arms have had npon onr home
traitors. No wonder they desire to get rid
of them. But is it safe or wise thus to dis
arm the city? These are perilous times.
Mob violence only slumbers In all great cities.
Property owners are directly interested font
these arms he not sold.
Gov. Yates, of Illinois, petitions Congress'
Tor the Immediate Abolition of Slavery.
That is what the people arc waiting for.
Aim a blow straight at the accursed heart of
this rebellion. Land a six hundred pound
Bbell directly in the cncmy’a camp. Let it he
done. The age is ready for it. The hour is
ripe for the utter destruction at the hand of
Law, of an accursed and embodied blight on
All Law and Humanity. Gov. Yates certainly
speaks for Illinois In this matter.

It seems after all that Gov. Gamble, just
deceased* is the only endorser of Schofield.
The rebels in Virginia are certainly mena
cing the Upper Potomac region with a visi
tation that threatens the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad, on which a bridge has already been
burned by them.
The Indian war in Minnesota has just re
ceived a fresh qnictns in the capture of two of
the most pestilent chiefs, under circum
stances that may get ns into diplomatic dif
ficulties if onr British cousins choose to be
squeamish in the matter.
A fire in a rick-yard is of mors peril than
the simple share, that tails to the owner
thereof, if other stacks are in danger. The
public arc directly interested in putting down
the conflagration •of the smallest building,
even though the owner is insured, because
the fire may spread to other buildings. A
panic among depositors is like a Arc in dry
grass. A causeless run npon a bank is a con
flagration at work upon pnbllc interests, and
attacking that confidence which underlies
all commercial transactions. The run npon
the Savings Bank Is to be deprecated for
general as well as private reasons.
The business public knowlhis bank to be
sound. Its owners produce ample proofof
ability to pay every dollar. They are sure to
passthrough this ordeal unshaken. But, un
fortunately, the small depositors on its list
arc precisely ofa class the most difficult of
access, and hardest to convince of this fact
Their fear is contagions. One runs bee-msc
another runs. One calls frantically for Ms
deposit because others do, and each is un
willing to be the last in the race.
Viewing the run as purely causeless, and
aware of the evils any such event may entail
upon the community, we urge it as the duty
of the many who are assured of the stability
ofthebanktonse their influence upon all
within their reach affected by this panic, ad
■vising them to sacrifice nothing, notjeven the
time wasted in seeking their turn at the bank
counter. * Many who drew their deposits will
be puzzled to know what to do with them,
and cannot easily find a safer coarse than to
return them to the bank again.
A Sketch of Their Services.
The opportune arrival in our city of CdL John
reason Loomis, makes the publication of the fol
lowing record of Ms gallant regiment timely and
The BT4h Illinois Veteran Volunteer Infantry ar
rived at Camp Bntleron the evening of the 19th
ult., direct from 44 the front” at Scottsboro 1 , Ala.,
being the first regiment from the Ifith corps, Maj.
Gen. Logan's, to re-enlist—consequently the first
from that cups to enjoy their weD-eamed fur
lough. And after an absence of nearly thirty
months they bring hack 468 veterans ont of the 90S
men, who, on the final organization composed the
regiment. Add the “absent on furlough, wounded
at Tunnel Bill," and the detailed men counted,
shows an aggregate of over COO men for duty, of
which not twenty In all have been recruited since
the final organization of the regiment—a record
which speaks volumes for the care and efficiency
of the officers as well as for the tnaUrid of which
the rank and file is composed.

Raised from the State at large, as is the STlh, of
course the Capital was the most appropriate place
of rendezvous during their reorganization,
and there they won the most unbounded enco
miums from tbc dtlzcnsprcpo&sesscd though these
were in the reception of their own Seventh. But
the correct, soldierly bearing of the Twenty-Sixth,
Its orderly deportment and gentlemanly manners,
created an enthusiastic regard lor the men who,
in the license of soldiers forgot not the amenities
of citizens. A writer In one of the local papers
characteristic of the regiment is not dash
—is not the elan of the Zouave, nor the fiery en
thusiasm which sometimes answers as well as a
more sterling - and enduring courage—but
it is Intrepidity, cool, disciplined and tena
cious. It was this quality which held them nine
long days in the trenches at TiptonvQle, in
mud and water in midwinter, exposed to rebel
sharpshooters, and themselves unable to return a
shot; it was this that bold them nine longer hours
under the converging fire of eighteen heavy Na
poleon and Parrott guns, and musketry and sharp
shooters innumerable, at Tunnel Hill—until
Sherman, the war-worn “ regular.” with all
his West Point predilections thick upon
him, swore they were worthy to fight with
his Old Thirteenth; and it was this that
led them, toil-worn and baUlo-ecarred, barefooted
and ragged from the unprecedented march to the
relief olßrnnside, to take the initiative iu their
Corps in the work of re-enlisting—spreading sich
a wlid-fire of enthusiasm, that in one entire Divi
sion (Gen. Ewing's) there are not more than fifty
nun eligible for the veteran service who are not in
to “see this tiling throneh” —and pi these fifty, a
large majority enter the Invalid Corps.
Onr own city claims a lair share of the Staff Of
ficers, the Colonel, Lieut. Colonel and Surgeon be

John Mason Loomis, now the ranking Colonel
from the State, took no mean military reputation
Into the Held with him, at the outset. At the early
age of eighteen he was already captain of the com
pany of militiawhich heldtheir annual “trainings”
In his native place—Windsor, Conn,, a position
which he signalized by causing tie arrest of some
score or more of Its most prominent citizens,
among them the father ot er-Gov. Seymour of New
York, These wealthy burghers he arrestee for a
violation of the militia laws, and marching them
to Hartford, he confined them In prison, made
their infraction a test question, ana finally suc
ceeded, by his boldness, persistence and tact, in
obtaining the repeal of the odious militia enact
Coming west in one of the intervals of bis then
occupation,—captain of a clipper in the East India
trade—he was, of course, tempted: entered into
the lumber business In.Mll wa ok ee In 18 14, and
finally, outgrowing oar Jealous sister of bricks,
n moved to Chicago In 1852-4, and was soon at
the bead of one of the largest lumber firms in the
North West.
His connection with the old “Light Guard,”
when that company was the acme of military ex
cellence west of the New York 44 Seventh”, was
but the preparation for the s: erner drama in which,
for the past two years and a-half he has borne such
a glorious part, and we arc glad to notice, as will
be eeen by reference to another column, that the
remaining members of tbe 44 Guard” recognize the
glory he has shed upon the old company.
The same rigidity of discipline, the same enthu
siastic devotion to everything which becomes his

acting the observance, which marked him as a
train-band captain, bat now ! infused with a liv
ing, earnest patriotism, and combined with
an almost paternal care and interest In
his men, a personal bravery which knows
no fear, a coolness and fertility of re
source In danger and emergency have character
ized him as one of our most successful brigade
commanders,—a position which bis eagles have
held for over two years. A round dozen of well
fought battle-fields have cert&luiy earned him his
Lieut. CoL Robert A. Gilmore, son-in-law of
Robert 8. Wilson, is at present fust recovering
from a severe wound received at Tonne) mil. He
was also severely wounded at Corinth, and we ex
pect to bear of ms being wounded in his next—if
there are anv particularly exposed places into

Gilmore’s friends pity only the seceah, when he

Major John B. Harris, is a Tennesseean by birth,
buthaa resided in old Sangamon county long
enough to become a thorough sucker. His bravery
at Tunnel Bill, where he was in command of the
entire line of skirmishers, elicited tbe special ad

here, in the office of Drs. Andrews and Johnson.
Early in his professional career, Sr. Reilly became
attached to the Medical Staff of the army, as As

first field service at Pittsburg Landing, and while
in the courageous and zealous discharge of his du

ball passing thro neb his leg. immediately upon
bis recovery he again entered upon his duties with
the 45th, with which regiment be remained for
some months, winning high encomiums for his

1668 he was promoted to his present position.
Samuel A. Sheldon, First Assistant Surgeon,

the men in an unusual degree.
The Adjutant, Edward A. Tucker, was so badly
wounded at Tunnel Hill, that his life was des

bis services to the regiment is a severe one.

rebels are making a great effort to destroy the
Baltimore and OMo Railroad. Telegraph
lines were cut abont noon to-day east of
Cumberland, and bridges at the North Branch

some fighting at the latter point. It is fear
ed tbnt an attack would be made on Martins

Patterson crock and North Branch. After
burning these bridges they moved in the di

Tbo time has passed for offensive mUltaiyopora*

recovering lost positions of territory the true
policy now is to risk nothing. Our means of sub
sistence have been too far exhausted to admit of
any other than defensive ladles, that have become
with na now a simple question of endurance with
the South. The duration of the war is simply a
question of a continued supply of food for the peo
ple and the army. The South can bold out indefi
nitely, if at the eleventh hoar she does not go mad.
Tbo Richmond Congress can bring her to subjuga
tion in six months more by conscripting her pres
ent producing classes, and thrusting them into
an unclad and nufod army. The great want Is
food and clothing. The first duty or the govern
ment is to provide these supplies, and if they are
rot provided except by weakening the army, the
alternative must be adopted, of resting with small
er armies, using the tactics of Fablus, and the
strategy of defence.
