On the third page will be found the true history of the “flaunting lie** poetiy, about which the Copperhead papers and spoolers hare had so much to say during the past three or four years. And we may add that the author of each bl the four stanzas Isa *“ Tammany Hall Demount In fuU paint 1 * —one of the ftraigblcst of his tribe. We hope Uic Cops, will read this true history, and forever alter hold their peace. Miss Dickinson In her discourse last night, was exceedingly severe on the President** Amnesty Proclamation. She pointed oht many objections to it and predicted that ?rrcat evils would result from it Bat a single hard fact will often times knock over the strongest theoiy and upset the finest reasoning.. "We invite her attention to what one of our corrcepondents'with Grant's army writes, in regard to the effect of the amnesty •on the rebel soldiers, and we vouch for his truthfulness and reliability. He says: “ T/tree Jtnndtrd daerterg an coming into uur Hues eadi <k>y ; many of them bringing their arms and ammunition along with them,’* Here Is an xiclual loss of 2,000 men a week to Johnston's *mny. Is it not better to conquer them thus, than to kill them J We have not been entirely pleased with the fenns of the amnesty, believing it to be 100 lenient; but it is hard to overconie the force of the argument in its favorin the shape of -XX) rebel soldiers who dally accept its ten***, abandon the rebel service, lay down their sons, and take a solemn oath to recognize slavery as henceforth abolished, the au thority of the Federal Government as fully established in their respective States, and pledging themselves hereafter to obey and support it •' THE HBIFT-SHALE IT BE POSX- POXJEJD? It is not yet settled that the draft is to be postponed lor one month. Indeed our Mad ison dispatch would seem to indicate the conbcriptlou will certainly ink* place on the 10th of March. If Congress is still haunt ed by a guilty suspicion that It must further tinker the Conscription bill, let it knock ont the S3OO clause, and then bring on the draft forthwith. What we want Is men, and the demand is imminent It is utterly foolish sind ridiculous to urge that volunteers arc now coming forward luster than they can be •provided tor. All our old regiments in the held need to be strengthened at once from a third to two-thirds more than their present number. We have very few regiments at the maxi mum. We have many that Aatv ucotr seen the a.iiuumv. required by law. We should fill the next month with a rally of armedmen to the front, and the work of enrollment should so on until the whole North swarms with a splendid reserve. What are wo waiting for ? Is any one at Washington deliberately con templating a delay and dalliance with pre cious time umtil, stung and smarting by great ■disaster to our cause, the volunteer rash to - jiius In the North begins y Will the men who arc wasting time at Washington with mediocre gabble, remem ber that on them will rest a tremendous re sponsibility if they let slip the present time for preparation for a crushing campaign aguluet the rebels? Postpone for one month, or for one year, the offices of tho tax collec tors, even dclcr speech making in Congress : for thirty or ninety days, and the nation will survive, but let nothing be thrown in -the way of-the replenishment of our armies. •At this hour when having boldly advanced into the very heart of rebcldom, and on the verge of a death grapple with the desperate enemy, our noble soldiers look eagerly bock to watch the coming reinforcements, shnii we -send them Instead five thousand copies of the speech of the Honorable Mr. Muddles on the floor of Congress, giving copious reasons why the draft that ought to have been in operation in January, 1863, should still be postponed? It is bad faith with the “ heroes gone be fore.” It is bad frith and worse policy with the people. We trust there will be no more postponement. There should be only delay enough to weed out the S3OO commutation clause, and make each dratted eligible for military duty, u yo or tend a rum,” and ‘ with that good start received the coveted end of ibis war is near. The people will save the Government if the Government will do 1 Its part only indifferently well” The people do not ask to be saved from the draft, bat from this rebellion. ANOTHER VIEW OF THE 81TX7A- TXON. A gentleman just Irom Washington, who Lad good opportunities of penetrating mili ary secrets, assures us that the destination' ol Sherman's expedition is Mobile; that alter reaching the Alabama river he will, tom South, sweeping down to that city, driving Arch-Bishop Gen. Polk ahead of him and into It, when in conjunction with Admiral Farm gut's fleet and a portion of Gen. Banks' land forces, lie will invest and lay close siege to this important place, confident in his ability to capture it with its garrison of 20,000 men. Onr informant declares that it was not Gen. Smith's order to form a junction with General 13 her .man's corps, bnt to more boldly forwards toward Colambns and Meridian, as if that were his intention, which he did, until lie was met and partly surrounded by the clouds of cavalry bclcngingto Johnson's and Polk's forces; he then fell'back towards Memphis, closely pressed by the rebels. But the strategy has succeeded,' as by this move ment ten or twelve thousand of rebel cav alry have been drawn away some hundreds ol miles in an opposite direction Irom that pur sued by Sherman; otherwise they would be impeding his march, harrosslng his flanks and rear, cutting off his forage trains' and em barrassing bis advance. If all this shall prove true, it must be confessed that the rebs have been badly anchored, - and com pletely out-monenvred, the fruits of which will lu due scosonbe gathered. Kcw Copperhead Position. The Cops, like McClellan after the battle ol Gaines' Mills, are “ changing their base." Here is the new position to which the -Kw Turk World retreats: “When the South entered upon thU war. they ■deliberately exposed tbclr slave property to the perils and vicisitndcs of a miHtarr contest, and they most take the consequences. The Democrat ic party of the North s’caofastly holds to the same principle of non-intervention which it hes always insisted upon as the true constitutional doctrine.

SI, ISBL CONGRESSIONAL. In consequence of the non-actaon of the Senate to-day on the House bill,, extending volunteer bounties to the Ist of April, and an evident Indisposition to concur, - the order postponing the draft to the lat of April was rescinded. CONPZSUATXONB, ETC. The Senate to-day confirmed Grant as Mqjor General of the Regular Army, and Maid, Sherman, McPherson and Thomas os Brigadier Generals of the Regular Army; also, Pleasanton and G. K. Warren, as Major Generals of Volunteers. Gen. Humphreys, recommended by the MCltaiy Committee Ibr confirmation os Major General, was laid over. The Senate also confirmed W. D. Gallagher as Surveyor of Customs at Louisville, and a number of Consuls, Commissioners, Collec tors, and Assessors of Internal Revenue, some of the latter being for Southern States repossessed by Federal authority. Mr. WnsoD, of lowa, introduced a bill sus pending the direct tax until April Ist, 1867. The bDI making Parkersburg, West Vir ginia, a port of delivery passed the Senate.

The Senate Committee on Pensions report ed to-day in favor of paying eight dollars a month to the widow ot Reuben Stafford, of Crawford township, Coshocton county, Ohio, who was killed while engaged arresting drafted men. (Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Washington, Feb. 2ft, IS6L THE FLOKTDA DISASTER. ln a letter written Immediately after the recent disaster in Florida, Maj. Jno. Hay sets down onr loss in killed, wounded and missing, at 800. Maj. Hay says that the loss is considerably greater than was at Ant sap posed. He adds that Gen. Seymour brought off his troops in splendid style. OUB HICHXOND PHISONEHS. CoL Straight, 51st Ind; Maj. McDonald, 101 st Ohio; Capt. Pearce, 51st Ind., and Lieut. Sterling, Slst Ohio, who tunnelled themselves out of Libby Prison, arrived here to-day Mr. Sherman reported to the Senate, to day, a disagreement of the Conference Com mittee on the internal revenue bill. The sub ject was postponed till to-morrow, when- he will move for instructions to the Committee to impose a tax of twenty cents on stocks of whisky on hand. THE EXTENSION OF THE DRAFT. The House joint resolution extending the bounty system till-the Ist of April, received the cold shoulder in the Senate to-day, the military committee being divided in opinion and having received no communication from the President, the Secretary of War, or any other executive officer, reported it back with out recommendation, and the Senate recom mitted it on the gronnd that such an impor tant measure shonld only be adopted, if at all, on request of the Executive, and after careful examination by the Military and Fi nance Committees. It was stated In the course of the debate, that, since the Ist ol October, the Govern, xnent had paid or agreed to pay over ninety millions in bounties, and that the contlnu-, an ce of the would cost twenty to twenty-five millions mot The | Evanston Ballroad Bill failed to pass the Common Council last night, as shown in our report elsewhere, the most fa tal point against it being the legal one urged by the City Attorney, that the Council had no power to grant what the corporators ask. The measure will therefore stand de ferred and bide its time. Meanwhile the large share of the public to be benefited by its completion, will be among the greatest losers in point of convenience. The road must and will be built in time. Whiskyis still an unhappy and “perturbed spirit,” and will not probably get off without a tax on slocks on hand. Hr. 'Wilson said that we could raise by April more men this way than by draft, and that measure was recommended by Generals Burnside and Hancock. Mr. Grimes said if the bounties were con tinued much longer, many men of war would be without seamen. COLOBED &OLDLECS. The bill equalizing the. pay and emolu ments of colored and white soldiers was re ferred back to military committee after far ther discussion, it being so heavily loaded with amendments as to render such disposi tion necessary. Hr. Fessenden made a strong speech in de fense of his course in opposition io making the bill retrospective. Some of the propos ed amendments he would have voted for in another shape, but this effort to tack them on had delayed the passage of a bill estab lishing the- principle of the equality of the United Slates soldiers, for three weeks. Bauman's book jobyvas rescinded In the House to-day, after two hours' filibustering by Democrats. Farnsworth's resolution re pealing the former one on this subject, finally prevailed.

[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.} TCaamsoroN, Feb. 29,18 W. What is known and what is not certain with reference to tho responsibility of the Florida expedition, can now be stated posh lively, that neither Secretory Stanton nor Gen. Halleck, nor Secretary Welles, was con sulted as to the propriety of abandoning the attack upon Charleston, and even knew that Gen. Gilmore was going South from that city until the news of his departure arrived here. No one In Washington, unless it be the Pres ident, is responsible for the expedition. It is denied, on the part of the President, that he ever issued any orders to Gen. Gilmore, contemplating any militaiy movement in Florida, but it Is admitted that beside the written Instructions with regard topollUeal rehabitation of Florida conveyed to Gilmore by tho President's Private' Sccretaiy, Major John Hay, that gentleman was authorized to express the wishes of tho President orally, or Gen. Gilmore was directed to be guided by Major Hays* suggestion!, and it is claimed by General Gilmore that he acted in the mat ter under the President's orders; such at least woe his answer when asked by Gen. Hallock why he went to Florida.- The whole affair has caused much excitement and indignation here, and there is great anxiety to learn who is the really responsible party. The House passed the Ways and Means bill, changing two hundred millions of ten* forty loan to five-forties. run IN THE MOUSE.

It appears that not withstanding the action of Mr. Stevens in re gard to the recommendations adverse to the passage of the bill, four of the most influen tial members of the committee arc earnestly in favor of the measure. It will probably be amended so as to require the sale of the sur plus gold to be made in open market, bat without any restriction requiring previous notice, and a sale to the highest bidder. The ultimate passage of the bill is regarded as be yond a doubt. ■Washington. Feb. 29—The bill reviving the grade of lieutenant General was signed to-day by the presiding officer of each House, and only awaits the President's signature to become a law. Provost Marshal General Fry will Issue on order to-morrow postponing the draft until the Ist ol April. Whatever remarks took place in secret ses sion of the Senate In regard to the nomina tion of Caleb Lyon for Governor of Idaho, it is known from credible sources that he was confirmed by the Senate without a dissenting voice. The Conference Committee on the tar bill met again yesterday, and reopened the case, notwithstanding the fact that they had sign ed the report dl their disagreement. It was moved by the committee that they shonld report their disagreement, and then ask for instructions to tax all liquors on hand SO cents per gallon, and increase the tax to 80 cents alterthc first of July, and after January to $1 per gallon. This moveun the port of the committee is regarded as a most extraor dinary proceeding, which will undoubtedly be overruled by both Houses. The House passed the bill reported from the Committee of Ways and Means last week, cud which was then published, authorizing a change in the form of a part of the law au thorized by the act last This is the bill for the issue of $200,000 of 5.40 bonds.

On Uic night of the 23d of February a party of Knights of the Golden Circle and other bushwhackers crossed tho Mississippi Hirer from Missouri and attacked several clt xena of Jersey county, Ilk, about eight miles nbovc Alton. Upon the application of a magistrate of Jersey, Col. Weer, ot the 10th Kansas, commanding post at Alton, sent a detachment of soldiers to aid a constable in making arrests. Upon arriving at the place pointed out, they found the scoundrels had all fled hut one, who was found secreted In a -cellar. "While endeavoring to arrest him he dis charged a revolver wounding the constable, supposed mortally, and a soldier slightly, and, in turn, the rascal ms shot through the abdomen, and is now in hospital at Alton. He will probably recover. A rebel flag was found flying before a house, which one of the officers of the 10th Kansas captured. In Calhoun and several other border coun ties, K, 6.

Polk has retreated across the river at Dqmopolis, to decoy Sherman across, when he would offer battle. The Atlanta Appeal says that Sherman’s purposes arc still a mystery, as to whether he will move against Mobile, or tnm eastward on learning that Polk awaits him on the Tombigbee. If he turns against Mobile, Polk will reinforce the city, by way of the river, sooner than Sherman can march, there. It thinks the movement from Chattanooga Intended to cooperate with Sherman, aa£ Selma the objectionable point. It says Sher man with sudden and unexpected rapidity has moved against their weakest point. Mississippi is the vciy Egypt of the Confed eracy, where, if not ejected, he can subsist till Spring and do more damage than by win ning a pitched battle '" He continues to make war upon our subsistence] and resources, which to destroy is to defeat us. It says Sherman' marches in solid body, “With his artillery in front, in his rear and on his flanks are his cavalry close under, his gnns. Not a man is allowed to leave £ir enough to steal a chicken or pig. The rebel cavalry hover aronnd him arc but unable to bar rase him greatly. The utmost consternation prevails, and cit izens are invoked to arms to repel the in vaders.

Adjourned. *1,091 -2,033 •1,574' -1,123 .1,471 .1,607 Indianapolis, Feb. 29, ISC I. MoVickzii’b Theatre.— “ The Pearl of Savoy, or the Wether’s Prayer,” written expressly for Hiss Magcio Mitchell, was produced last «igM, with new scenery and appointments, to a very audience. Hiss Mitchell created a sensation In her new character, and she was loudly and cor dially applauded. She was wen supported by the prominent members of the stock company. We are no apologists for bad acting, nor do we believe in indiscriminate pulling of even good. The pay ing public will generally discriminate and act for themselves; and certainly, if the patronage be stowed upon MoTicker’s Theatre by large num bers of onr host citizens bo any evidence of the high estimation In which the establishment Is held, the malitlons assaults made by the Chicago Steesh Twits upon the ladles and gentlemen con nected with that establishment arc uncalled for, ungenerous, and, we might add, malicious ■ for we believe that is the controlling motive in criticism in that concern. These ladies and gentlemen can not of course protect themselves against these ma lignant assaults, and It should be beneath the dig nity of any respectable journal to resort to such measures to ventilate a hatred which, although evidently aimed at Mr. McVicker himself, takes in its sweep his entire company. ' % “Qilleflower” writes us aielter about Viao Maggie Mitchell and her loyalty.

' Chicago, Feb. 29,15G4. Jin. Ed iron: As there is an erroneous opinion prevaiing to a certain extent in Chicago, from the conversation at the various hotels, cither mali ciously or otherwise, concerning the real senti ments and sincere feelings of wiwa Maggie Mitch ell relative to this great struggle for the mainten ance of the Union and the execution of the laws. It therefore becomes necessary, both from justice to this popular artiste and credit to the proprietor and also for the benefit of those ill-advised persons whoso unwarranted prejudice baa prevented them and their fnenda from witnessing her most pleas ing performances, that she should appear to the public In her true character as regards this war And as articles exceedingly detrimental to her as having Southern sympathies have appeared in print, and have long since been authoritatively contradicted, yet she still seems to be looted upon as being one of doubtful loyalty. - Therefore, let this entirely obliterate all such donbts and prejudices from their minds. As this favorite actress bos at no period ot the contest en tertained any disloyal sentiments whatsoever, hut, 1 on tho contrary, her heart is deeply Interested in onr cause from pure and unselfish motives. She desires a vigorous prosecution of the war, a speedy and permanent peace, that trill'bring gladness and consolation to many an aeMn«» heart. She honors the bravo soldier wno has gone forth to battle for his nation’s cause and sacrifice him self upon the altar of bis country; leaving happy homes and loved ones far away from tho voice or a mother, which ever swells Its heavenly cadence on the soul, and now watches with such anxiety and love tho lives of them whom, sbo fed from the store-honse of virtue. She a’ao sympathizes with tho suffering wound ed and dying, and prays they may ascend the stairs of Immortality to Heaven’s blue vaults, knock at the rates of sun-set and walk along tho celestial lights, their path paved with sun beams, accom panied by the glittering stars and drink from the crystal fount that sparkles before the throne In the paradise of the blest, for beyond the aides. Respectfully yours, 8. Aunold Gillzflowek, Present, A Chicago Abtist ct Bostok.— Mrs.L. S. Fro bock, late Miss Tillioghost, for many years tha ex* ccllent organist of Bt, Paul's Church in this city, baa created quite a sensation in the “Modern Athens" by her performances upon the great organ. She played at the fifth concert of the Orchestral Union, on the filth ult. to toccata in F from Bach and Battista's beautiful both of which she played at her farewell concert in this city. The Boston Traveler aaya of her: ■ The Orchestral Union concert at Music naD, yes* terday afternoon: was attended by a large audi ence, and the performance was one of unusual ex cellence. The novelty of the occasion was the Eerformanco upon the organ by Mrs. L. 8. Fro ock. It was her first appearance in Boston. Tbe impression made was highly favorable to her skill and taste, the performed with the power, touch and finish that has marked the artists of the oppo site sox who have preceded her. Mrs. Prohock Is a lady of some 25 years, has the appearance ot a woman of nerve and purpose, ana handled the great organ yesterday as though bom for the spe cial purpose. Her performances were a Toccata from Bach, and an Offertoire from Battistc, both of which excited much applause. musical.— Miss Annie Main, of this city, sung iu a concert at Madison, 'Wis., on Friday night, to thoinfiniteddightoftheMadlsonians. The Jour nal says her Ave Maria M was beautifully rendered in clear and expressive tones, how ringing in hope, and now subsiding into beseeching sweetness, In spiring and touching. The warm encore which greeted her enquisite effort drew forth a repetition of tbe melting cadences." Hiss Main also gave II Baccio (the Kiss) and “rendered Its trillings with sweetness and perfect command of voice. Miss Main was in excellent voice and sung with a skill and natural power that rendered all she sung worthy of the starriest songsters of the day, and wc are not surprised at her vocal powers being in such demand, for they are rich and rare." — l Gottscbalk is - meeting with great success in Boston.
