C)icaigo tribune.
The situation in the south, where not cn
tircly mysterious, is beginning to be in sev
eral respects suggestive of well-grounded
apprehension. The aspect recently present
ed of the remaining area of rcbeldom being
penetrated by several Federal expeditions,
respectively starting from various points on
•the Mississippi tmd Tennessee, and from
Florida, converging to a common centre,
heart of Georgia, has
changed, and three of the ex
peditions are at anjend. The narrative of

a reconnolssance in force.” The statement
may be softened down to-any milder phrase,
xmd yet these facts will remain insoluble by
;any alchemy of the imagination.
Now will any one seek to give the aspect a
anorc comforting phrase by teUing us that in
the rebel troops that followed bard after Gen.

I The most important discovciy ever made
| in this State has jnst been made public. It
j consists of a magnificent bed of canncl coal,
1 which has been found np the Minnesota Yal
‘ ley on the Cottonwood river, a little more
I than 100 miles from St. Paul. Mr. Fames,
cn*Xngl!sb geologist, has been prospecting
for coal in this State for the past ten months,
and has at lost been successful. The bed is
8S feet below the surface where the shaft was
sunk, and is six feet in thickness. It is pro
bable that other shafts will find It nearer the
I surface. All indications are that immense
*coal beds exist in thatloeality. A company
has been organized in this city to work the
mines, and they expect to be bringing coal
down the Minnesota river to St. Paul by the
Ist of July. The immense importance of
j this discovery cannot be overstated. Our man
ufacturing- interests have been kept in the
back ground for want of this material, and
they will now be rapidly developed.

nishes thefoUowing:
I happen to know something of Sherman’s
orders, and at this late day it cannot be im
proper to publish them. He was to proceed
to Meridian and if possible get a battle out of
Polk. Upon bis success In this depended bis
future movements; If ho could fall upon the
reverend gentleman and destroy his com.
nand he was to proceed to Selma direct, to
which point steamboats and even gunboats
can go, most of the year, thereby leaving the
conquest ot Mobile and its small garrison to
Banks and Farrogut.
But If the rebels refnsed to fight and
strengthened the garrison at Mobile, Sher
man was to proceed there and lay siege to the
place. From the fact ho bus already turned
Southward, I infer that Polk is retreating to
ward the Gulf where the fate of Pemberton
awaits him.

glers that Gen. Smith’s expedition has been
cutup, prove false. That General himself
returned here 11 o’clock lostgdgbt. From
on officer’a'diary report during tho progress
of the expedition I condense the following
particulars in addition to those already for
warded :
TnuBSDAT, Feb. 18.—The expedition reached
Okaloca on the v oblJo and Ohio Railroad 70 miles
south of Corinth, ISO mites southeast of Memphis.
Here they heard that Sherman had captured Me
ridian, and was advancing east.
. Fbidat, Feb. 19.—Marched to Egypt Station, on
theM.acdO.J3. R., where we captured and de
stroyed a greal quantity of Confederate corn. One
column went through Aberdeen the other west of
the railroad concentratingat Pralrlo Station. The
Aberdeen column, under Gen. Grierson, had con
siderable skirmishing near that place and de
strovednver 100,000 onshels of corn at Prairie
Station, also a large lot of Confederate cotton.
SAtuedat, Feb. SO—Brsok’s Corps reported
in force at west Point. At 11 a. m. advance skir
mished heavily with tho enemy. AtSp.m. halted
within one mile ofWesc Point, lost 1 Lieutenant
killed and 6 men wounded in skirmish. We kill
ed 1 rebel Captain, captured and wounded a rebel
Majorand 1 private.
Sdhday—si—Moved west and found Forrest,
Lee, Chalmers and Roddy were combined against
ns. They tried to cut our column m two but with
out success. Very heavy fighting occurred both
rear and advance. Tbe 3a lowa heda number killed
and wounded on a gallant charge. From two to
three thousand rebels were on each flank all in
heavy force on our rear and constantly charging.
Wo here lost threo pieces 4-pounder stoci guns,
which were spiked before captured. All their
ammunition was saved.
Smith now fell back slowly, our troops ambush
ing the rebels as they advanced. The rebel loss
was quite heavy, and Smith burned every trestle
on the Mobile and Ohio road, destroyed miles
of the track and a very large amount of com as he
Monday, Feb. 22.—Broke camp in tho morning
after resting only two hours. There wss severe
fiebting on our rear all day. The rebels lost heav
ily as tho roads were heavily ambushed at every
available point, and volley alter volley was poared
into them at chort range as they advanced, bpt
having so much tho largest force,they continued to
press our rear heavily, the rebel column moving on
each flank with the evident design of reaching the
Tallahatchie in advance of our force,-ond forming
a junction to provent our crossing, and thus cap
ture the whole command; but by forced marching
Smith passed both flanking columns andmarching
all night crossed safely at >cw Albany.
Tuesday, Feb. 2s.—Rear guard ' skirmished
cB day.
Wednesday, Feb. 24.—Skirmishing continued.
Tuub*dat, Feb. 25.—Marched fltty-two miles,
arriving at Memphis at 11p.m. Most of the ex
pedition, however, stopped at ColUersvillc.
The following Is an estimated result of
the expedition: Destroyed over a million
bushels of corn, tore up and destroyed many
miles of track on tbe M. & O. B. 8., burned
many bridges, and trestles, captured and
brought in over 1,500 mules and horses,
about 2,000 negroes, over 800 rebel prisoners
who are now in Armory prison.
It is impossible to give onr loss, but it is
much less than the enemy’s.
The expedition was successful in every
point and every particular except in the im
portant one, that of making a junction with
Sherman, which is attributable molnlv to the
slow movement of thcNcw Jersey and Penn
sylvania cavalry regiments, causing a delay of
one week In starting the expedition;
The retreat was not at any time a route,
although there was some straggling.
Louisville, Feb. 28.—A reliable Informant
leaving tho front on Friday morning reports
our army then five miles from Tunnel Hill
and two. miles front; Dalton; that they had
ascertained that the enemy were in force at
.Dalton. We had fall rations and would <h
jack Dalton when dteroed. advisable. On the
contrary, intelligence received by milita

Farther inquiry has elicited the fact, which
can be asserted upon the very highest author
ity, that the President never issued any order
or made any suggestion to Gen. Gilmore re
lative to military operations in Florida;
Hat the contrary statement, which rests ex
clusively, so far as cm be ascertained, upon
the assertions of Gen. Gilmore himself, is
untrue, and that tbe expedition was made by
Gen. Gilmore upon bis own responsibility.
It is presumed that Gen. Gilmore will seek
his justification in the President’s order,

From an officer who arrived in the Fulton,
we learn some further particulars of the dis
aster to our forces near Lake City, Fla.
Gen. Seymour, who commanded the expe
dition, had been placed under arrest by order
of Gen. Gilmore.
His successor Gen. Vodges, who left

Oar informant says it was the opinion of
the officers who took part in the expedition
that onr total losses In killed, wounded and
missing ore between 1,200 and 1,000.
Gen. Seymour is severely aensured in not
throwing out scouts and skirmishers os onr
troops advanced. As it was, our troops
were led Into a trap.
Hamilton’s artillery led the ran and Buf
fered severely.. The rebel sharpshooters
picked off their horses, and their guns had to
be abandoned.
The 40th Massachusetts mounted infantry
have also suffered severely.
In the retreat many of our wounded were
left behind within the enemy’s lines.
Our troops were right in front of the Con
federate batteries in a piece of woods be

when their batteries opened a galling fire

Wasbxkqtok, Feb. 27,1881.
Not more than fifty present.
It haring been agreed yesterday that nothing
should bo done to-day except making speeches,
Davis occupied tho Chair, ana the President's an
nual message was announced as the theme for
HARDING, of Ky„ referred to a former declar
ation of tbe President, that the Union Is unbroken
and all secession ordinances arc void. In thfn
view be concurred, and, therefore, whenever the
rebellion shall bo suppressed, either hy force of
arms or voluntary enbaiiMion, • the
revolted States are thereby restored
with all their rights and privileges In the Union.
This view was sound and was acquiesced In by the
Conservatives and Democrats, bat.the President
had changed and had presented a scheme for re*
constrncttonmoro destructive that the old doc
trine of State rights. The scheme was mapped by
the master builder with a pencil dipped inolooo.
Persons aretovoiejnetas the President may di
rect. The effect was the iron hand of despotism
crashing one the last vestige of Constitutional lib
erty. leaving nothing but desolation. It would es
tablish the most odious abolition oligarchy of sav
age and cruel character, and it was enough to Are
any man's veins in which runs a drop of revolu
tionary blood.
Mr. DEiUNG, of Conn., said the President's
scheme ol reconstruction seeks to liberate order
from anarchy and its penalizing influences; to
prevent innocence Irom being compounded with
euilt; to separate loyalty from the unhealthy
contact of dlsnnionism, which would subject it ia
the oyo of the law to the punishment for crime.
Tbe toeknvas one of great embarrassment and
difficulty, because of the imperfection of human
wisdom, and because the plan was designed by tbe
President to he transitory in Its character to
bridge the chasm between Stateanarchy and State, •
restoration thus commencing the great deliver
ance. In attempting to solve this difficult prob
lem no statesman would adopt any different plan.
While the President's plan may be incomplete, it
was as comprehensive ,as the Intricacies of the
subject would permit. It possessed tbe rare
merit of being Just to the Government, just to the
insurgent States and to the slave.
Mr. DKIHNQ defended the Amnesty Proclama
tion as being justifiable from the fact that la tbe.
literal sense every citizen in the insurrectionary
States Is a public enemy.
' Mr. BLAIR, of Mo., discussed the affairs of that
State, defending himself from the attacks which
had been made. Having sought to discharge his
whole duty, he might challenge a comparison of
records with his assailant. The radicals had
kindled the smouldering fires, and from a spirit of
retaliation had undertaken to build up a party.
For himself, he was always willing to accept grad
ual emancipation, and when the people of that
State desired Immediate emancipation he wonld
be more than ready to accept U. He entered on
an exposition of this subject, charging that tuese
radicals had sought to deceive Union men, and
were not in favor ot immediate emancipation,
having refused to vote for it in convention where
they had tbe power to carry it.
As to the recent convention in Baltimore It was
compelled to nominate Mr. Lincoln, as the people
of the State were for him. Cut dark lantern aaso
xlatlona still exist in Maryland, and hence some
delegates were elected professedly for Mr. Lincoln,
but to betray their trust—one of Secretary Chase’s
assessors declaring he would vote for whom he
Hr. Blair expressed h!s surprise that the repre
sentatives from lowa and other States had been
caught In a trap by signing a paper asking for the
rejection by the Senate of Schofield as a Major
Sir. WILSON, ol lowa, denied that the delega
tion of that State was caught In a trap. He knew
what the paper was, and that It told the truth.
Sir. GRINNELL, of lowa, said that the Missouri
militia came from Northern Missouri Into the
southern portion of bla district stealing horses and
plundering roosts. They came to blow up the
Conn Bouse arid unite themselves with the?
Knights of the Golden Circle.
Mr. BLAIR replied that it was not sufficient
ground against Gen. Schofield, while a few such
men may have crossed over, the attention of the
commanding officer was directed to another quar
ter. He said tho enemy sought to rely on misre
presentation to inlnre Gen. Schoflelq, and thus
make Issue against the President.
The Navy department consented to an Investi
gation, hut not so with the Treasury Department.
A more profligate administration than that of the
latter never existed. Recently in Balllmorca per
mit was given to a notorious blockade runner,
whose vessels had more than once been seized.
In alluding lo Pomeroy’s recent mrcnlar, he spoke
of its desizn as an Intrigue against the man who
had confided to Mr. Chase a portfolio, but the
President was doubtless satisfied every day Mr.
Chase remained in the Cabinet woaid sink him
deeper into the contempt of every bonorablemaa.
