An Objection to McClellan,
Some of the Peace Democrats say they can
not indorse McClellan. On eramin!fl«r hiß re
cord, they find that he arbitrarily arrested the
Maryland Legislature, and they can’t be true
to their eternal principles of personal liberty,
and sanction his (flection to the Presidency.
Fernando Wood is the mover In this indict
ment against Little Mac, but his object Is well
understood to be to prove that he is the only
acceptable candidate of the party. Bat it
really is a serious question for the Vallan
dighamers to solve. How can they reconcile
their consciences to the indorsement of an ar
bitrary-arrest candidate? Shall the patriot
exile suffer the pains ol martyrdom and im.
peennioshy, and shall his fronds pass ronnd
the hat and lake up collections'in fractional
currency, and support a Lincum-Bastle De
mocrat? These are grave considerations,
and worthy the attention of habeas corpus
6*y The Detroit Free Free* (Copperhead)
publishes a charge against Capt E. B. 'Ward
of that city of pocketing $40,000 belonging to
the Government. It states that the Govern
ment had a claim against the Detroit and
Milwaukee Boil way Company for about $93,-
oCo,as theGovemmentcontcnned, and $70,038
as the railway claimed, for duties on iron im
ported. The Government sued the Hailway
Company and sureties, and Captain Ward
pressing the company for a settlement, it now
appears from the statements of the company
that they placed, in July last, $60,000 in mon
ey and $20,000 In short paper in his hands for
the adjustment of this claim—that with this
money in his possession he induced Mr. Bus
sell, the U. 8. District Attorney, to take $35,-
000 In full discharge of the same—and Capt.
Ward pocketed the balance of the money.
That is the substance of the charge as made
by the Free Pres*, and as that paper is a cop
perhead sheet only equalled in its virulence
against loyal men by the Jett Davis organ
here, we put no confidence in the story what
soever, and are satisfied that when Mr. Ward
is heard, he will put a different aspect on the

true nevertheless. The boys just down from

[From Our Regular Correspondent.!
Washington, Feb. I,IBM.
The President’s call f0r500,000 more troops
caused some considerable excitement this
morning. It is in reality a call for 300,000 In
addition to the 200,000 troops of the last call.
The necessity of striking, a telling blow at
the rebels this summer Is now apparent to aIL
There must be no lallure this time. All the
energies of the nation must bepntforth. We
must break the enemy’s armies in the next
campaign, or no man can tell what the end
will be or what the effect in a financial or po
litical point of view upon the country. While]
holding back all means of supply, while try-!
ing to stop excitement, depreciating the!
'money and credit of the country, the Copper
heads have the brazen effrontery to claim'
that they will fight the Administration on'
the question of the future conduct of the war,
the disposition of the finances, the frauds'
of employees, &c. Their impudence in this!
Is only paralleled by their impudence in
claiming to be patriotic. Still there
are those foolish enough, and bigoted:
enough, and bound strongly enough to party,
in one way or another,'to believe them. Their
hypocrisy deceives thousands. It behooves
the President, then, to be prepared next sum
mer to strike such a blow at the rebellion as
will show to the honest and unprejudiced
masses of the country, that it is bound to be
utterly destroyed, more than ever, proba
bly, since the commencement of the war,
does financial ability to cope with the occa
sion depend upon military success. And so,
too, do onr political prospects depend upon
our military achievements. It appears that
the enlistments are now at the rate of about
two thousand per day.
The Copperheads are energetically prepar
ing for the coming political campaign. Never
did men work bo Industriously in a had cause
as they do now. They are willing to do al
most anything to achieve success. Tney
would gladly nominate Yollandigham or Sey
mour, or even Jeff Davis, If they thought the
chances favored their election. Audi verily
believe they would risk Gen. Grant on his
proclamation and arming of negroes plat
form, if they were sure of their man; that is,
if they thought he had a mind of wax or
dough, to be moulded to tbeir wishes. But
they very much doubt this. In tact, theirad
viccs from those sent to sound the General,
and those who know him intimately, are, that
he cannot be trusted. McClellan, then, still
has the inside track; ahdthc opinion of John
M. Botte, that he is lookea upon at the
South as a traitor to his cause, rather helps
him with the Copperhead leaders. In
Illinois McClellan is the first choice
of the politicians who “rule the roost” in
jronr city. In the southern part of the State
Seymour is the favorite, or rather divides the
honors with Fernando Wood. Your Knights
of the Golden Circle dread shoulder straps
“as the devil does holy water.” In the cen
tre McClellan runs ahead. The Springfield
clique is for him. In the matter of State
politics the Copperheads anticipate that wc
will nominate Gen. OglesbyorJohnM. Palm
er for Governor, and are consequently pre
pared to play the lowa game over again*
thot is, nominate a man who is for the war,
but not cnongh to hurt him as a Democrat!
They have accordingly cast their eyes upon
CoL Bill Morrison and Jim Robinson, Mem
bers of Congress, with the chances id fiivor
of the former. BUI Is a cousin of the cele
brated Don Morrison of the southwest part of
the State, who is as much of a secessionist as
a man dare to be in Illinois. This operates in
his favor among the Knights, who are told
that BUI is controlled by the Don, (what a
name for an American citizen,) and will do
whatever he wishes. Jim Allen is also a can
didate, but bis supporters are limited to him
self and a few near relatives of his. The
Copperheads say, as regards IlUnois, that it’s
going to be all one way or the other,
with the chances In lavor of the
other. The great trouble with the
Copperheads here, however, now is how to
“choke off” Fernando Wood. They say
he does not represent the party; but strange
enough, he always votes with them and they
with him on the leading questions. To be
sure, when Fernando “cuts it a lit
tle too fat,” they bolt; but they dare not
vote against him. Thus Bill Morrisson
voted as strongly copperhead this session as
Tenmndo Wood, and Fernando Wood as BIU
Morrisson. Still ignore Wood in private as
they may. in public they dare not do so, but
on the other hand defer to him on all the
gnat questions. He is the leader of the
“Democracy” in the Bouse de facto* if not
do Jure, and what’s more they know it and
feel it It’s a very eore spot with them.
Wood has made more points on tbeir side so
fer than Sam Cox or any of their leaders. As
to Jim Allen, who started ahead on the track
with great spirit, he Is now nowhere, or at
best lost in the middle of the “great ruck”
of mediocre talent
Mr. Stanton appeared before this Commit
tee at the instance of Mr. Hale, and testified
that the statement of the interview between
himself and Mr. Hale, as given by the latter
in the Senate on the 17th of December last
was substantially correct: that Mr. Hale ap
peared to be chiefly desirous of a speedy
trial for Mr Hunt; that Mr. Hale asked noth
ing of him which a counsellor at law might
cot with perfect propriety have asked of a
judge; that the arrangement effected he con
sidered perfectly proper; and the surety for
Mr. Hunt’s appearance to stand his trial am
ple; subsequent events justified that conclu
sion, as he was now being tried at Fortress
Monroe; that Mr. Hale never alluded to the
fact of his being a United States Senator and
friend of the Administration, nor from this
attempted to exert any Influence; that he
yielded nothing to Mr. Hale that he would
not have yielded to any other respectable
counsellor; that he considered Mm as acting
judiciously in the matter.
The passage of this bill is considered a tri
umph for the Anti-Slavery party. It was
bitterly opposed by the pro-slavery men and
ecccssionißts, who urged that the time of
bolding the Convention was too near, that
there was no compensation for freed slaves
and that there would be military interfer
ence. Tims one by one the border are wheel
ing into line os free States, and the work of
regeneration goes on.
I wrote you some time since that the Pres
ident felt greatly outraged at the disregard
of his proclamation of emancipation by citi
zens of Kentucky who were engaged in run
ning off slaves from Missouri and other states
into Kentucky and selling them. He conse
quently has ordered the arrest of all such
persons. Gen. Schofield has signalized his
advent in Kentucky by making a number of
such arrests, and I learn every person found
thus disregarding the emancipation procla
mation will be arrested and punished.
To-day in the House, Mr, Washburne made
a powerful speech in favor of his joint reso
lution for the revival of the office of Lieu
tenant General. He was bitterly opposed by
Messrs, Garfield of Ohio, and Stevens of
Pennsylvania, but finally carried his point,
nearly two to one. after a stout contest An
amendment was also offered and passed, rec
ommending Gen. Grant to the office. This
is one of the most important moves of the
session, and Mr. Washburne deserves much
credit for the tact and energy displayed bv
him therein.

Among the patents issued last week was
one to J. Bogin, of St Joseph, Mich., for an
apparatus to prevent the natural consequence
of marriage in the procreation of the species.
Strange enough, the application for the pa
tent was accompanied by the affidavits of
married females as to its efficacy. The paten
tee claims that the invention is perfectly
harmless in its effects. As the Scientific

girl, about ten years of age, was in the habit
of going to the shop for chips. She suddenly
disappeared, and her body, after a long
period, was found concealed In an Iron box
in Johnson’s shop. The theory of the case
was that Johnson had outraged the person of
the child, and then murdered her to prevent
exposure.. The evidence upon which John

in Brazil. The important fortress of Santa

the city of Bio de Janeiro. The wire is to he
carried to the base of Sugar Loaf Mountain,
and then submerged, and thus the great fort

Down on Cubbesct, — A meeting of the
fanners, mechanics and business men, was
held at Port Byron, Bock Island County, last
week, at which the sorting process practiced
by the banks,retaining all the Treasury notes
and paying out nothing but bank currency,
was severely denounced. A resolution was
passed to refuse all bank currency for labor
and produce. They invite the co-operation
of other communities. They complain that
under the sorting process, greenbacks have
become “ scarce and wonted.”
: An Englishman from Savannah, who
has just at Fortress Monroe from
Savannah, bears valuable testimony to the
efficiency of the blockade. The stores in
Savannah are nearly all closed, the stock of
goods having been exhausted and further
supply not being obtainable. He sent first
to Florida, thinking to escape to Nassau on
a blockade-runner; bnt he found every
chink of the coast closed, and ho was forced
to return. He was in Charleston two weeks
ago. The city was entirely deserted by the
inhabitants, and hundreds of hooscs had
been destroyed by shells from Gilmore’s bat
teries. At Wilmington ho found the block
ade-running business nearly dead—so nearly,
that the prospect of getting away from the
“Confederacy” by that avenue was very re
mote, and he was obliged togo to Richmond.

BOOS—One of tbc best markets of the past fortnight
hss closed tbls evening. A more liberal supply has
had the effect of bringing a larger number of buyers
to the yards, who appear to have generally actednpon
the Impression that as the receipts during tbc remain
der of the present season, are not only nneertain bnt
may be nearly exhausted, tbe better course la to seenre
aQ they can at anything like remunerative prices.
The receipts at the vanons yards have fallen very lit
tle short of 2,C00 bogs, most of which have been
brought from Miuoorl; the entered sales amount to
2,133, at prices ranging from $ lX236Jo.bat principally
atsfl.OO®6X9pcrlCOtts. About two-thirds of the re
ceipts have been purchased for shipment to New Tork.
Philadelphia, or Pittsburg, and some seven hundred
by one of onr city packers. Although there was a
fair amount of activity in the market on yesterday,
there has been deeluedly more to-day, tbe result of
which has been a further advance of [email protected] per 103
as upon our previous quotations. In comparing onr
price list with the average weights. It will be seen
that several very light lots were sold st what would
seem to bo exorbitantly high figures, bnt it
Is to bo observed that, without an except

larger lots, and therefore ot extra choice

BEEF CATTLE—The receips at the various yards
amount to aboutDCO head ofßcef Cattle, and the en
tered sales to BS9, at prices ranging from S2XO©IXS,
bnt principally at $9X091X5 V 100 as.
With the demand for the army requiring so
large a proportion of onr present supply
there Is stronger competition than usual, with less
room for outsiders to do much unless at an advance
upon the recognized valoe of stock In the market.
The receipts to-day have consisted mainly of good
medium grades, for which there la tbe most active
demand. Therefhave been several lots of very prime
qualities for which good prices were paid. We
spcclaly notice oae of 40 head of good Illi
nois steers which were sold at the Southern
Yards to 8. Hensley, for the New York market,
at S62XO per head averaging 1,261 oa each, they were
fed by B. Darnell of Sangamon county. For the Cum
berland army, two very extra Durham steers were
bought at the Fort Wayne Yards, by C. Kahn,Jr., av
eraging 2,500 iba each, at $150.00 per head. Tbe mar
