Poor old John Bull is putting his loot into
it everywhere, and seems destined to get into
everybody’s china shop. Not to spook of hii
bnnilng-np eight thousand
women and children, thereby provoking the
moral indignatiofi~bT the whole civilized
world, nor the ead plights he Is in - over
Indemnity claim, his Schi es wlg-Holstda
troubles arc more mortltying than oil others
combined... The latest intelligence says Eng-;
hmd has proposed an armistice between the
Danes and Germans, preliminary to a confer
ence to be held for the purpose of definitely!
settling the Scblcswlg-Eolstcln question.'
This, of course, Is axonccssion to Louis Na-|
poleon. He first proposed a general Con-:
gross, and England refused to comc in; now;
England is tbe first to ask for one. Napoleon’
must have bailed the war with delight, for it;
afforded a splendid opportunity to repay the
©light practiced upon.Mm. ...He could go
skating, or write Ms life of Csesar, while the
Germans were storming the Dazmcwerko.*
■What mattered it to Mm ? He had simply to
wait and watch for Ms own aggrandizement.
Kot so with England.. She must take action.
The Prince of Wales married the daughter of
the Boyal Done. Printe Alfred is Germanic'
inhissympaUiica. The Queen’s eldest daugh
ter is wife of the Crown Prince of Prussia,
and the Crown Prince isin the field fighting
against the father of Ms sister-in-law, the
Princess of Woles. : The Dnke of Angusten
burg, about whom all tills trouble has arisen, :
irthe nephew of 'Queen Victoria. In taking
action England thas most side with' neither
party, and therefore the only resort Is a coll
for a Congress. This Napoleon had done be
fore blood was shed, and England refhsed to
participate. Now England proposes It, and
Napoleon, enjoying the humiliation, heaps
coals of fire on the Bull’s head by accepting
the invitation. , %
THE PENINSULA RAILROAD. ;
We took occasion recently to direct public:
attention to tbe magnitude of the products'
of the Lake Superior iron mines. Stating
that this year they would reach 300,000 tons;
and would give employment to 100 sailing
vessels. Hitherto the route for these ores
has been over the Iron Mountain Railroad to
Marquette, thence through Lake Superior,
the Sant Canal, and St. Mary’s River, to the
lower lake ports. But tMs. year a hew route
will he opened, through the Peninsula Rail
road, from the mines to Bay dcs Noqncts of
Lake Michigan which, it is believed, is far
more, feasible than that hitherto pursued, and
one which the navigating interest of the
- lakes cannot view with indifference.
~ * THE TWO WATER ROUTES CONTRASTED. _
The advantages of this new route maybe
aummed up os follows: .
L The distance la-the voyage from the
Lower Lake ports, taking Presque Isle as the
diverging point is 100 miles less.
2 The cost of towage through tbe Stl
Mary’s River wMch omonntstoabont SIIO.OO
both ways, and occupies about three days’
time, will be avoided; and estimating tbe
cost of chartering a vessel at SIOO.OO per day,
would make a difference ol $410.00.
3. The tolls for passing thp canal, which
is 12c both ways,, rating according to the
vessel's tonnage and not her cargo, would
also be avoided, which on a vessel of 380
tons, whose average cargo would he 450
ions gross, would amount to $45.60, making
a difference in expenses of $455.60.
4. Assuming the freights from Marquette
to Cleveland to he $3.00 per gross ton, and
that the depth of water in the canal is suf
ficient for ordinary vessels, the rates of trans
portation by thh new route ought to be from
25 per cent to S3 per cent less.
5. As the depth of water in the canal dur
ing the past Reason was only ten feet three
Inches, the larger vessels were either ex
cluded from thin route or compelled to load
light—vessels of6oo .tons only loaded to two
thirds of their capacity. Such vessels, with
ample depth of water and loaded to their
full capacity, can he navigated about 5 per
cent cheaper than ordinary ones.
C. Navigators complain that the sides and
bottom of the canal were left rough and
jagged, so that a vessel touching is injured;
and from this . cause daring the past
season many vessels arriving in port were
compelled to go into dry-dock. Hence, ves
sel owners are reluctant to engage in this
trade. By the other route no perils of this
kind will be incurred.
7. The harbor ol Marquette is merely an
abrupt bend in the coast, affording no shelter •
from North and north-east winds, and hence
vessels ere. often compelled to weigh anchor
and jmt to sea.. The harbor of Bay des
Noqucts on the other hand, is deep, land
locked, and capacious enough to ride the
whole Lake fleet, with no liability to inter
ruptiqp while loading.
8. An additional advantage is that *in the
Summer, when freights are dun, vessels
would run down light from Chicago to Bay
dcs Noquct, take in a cargo of ore and pro
ceed to Cleveland or Buffalo, at a time when
they would not go to Marquette at all. In
the fall, when freights are high, this rule
wbula outum* sB relatively more time would
be consumed in going to Marquette tlian to
Chicago, In consequence of the prevalence of
westerly gales;
9. It may be assumed that the new route
will afford at least six weeks additional navi*
gallon—not that there will be that difference
between the opening end closing of the two
routes, but navigators arc reluctant to enter
Lake Superior after the 10th of October,
when they are sure to encounter boisterous
weather, and incur great risk of being nipped,
by ice In the St Mary's Hirer. On the other.
bond, vessels may safely approach Bay des
Noqncts until excluded by ice, with the foil
assurance that they will fiind open ports be
low. ;
# THE TWO SAILSOAS SOUTHS CONTRASTED.
The Iron Mountain Bollroad starts from
Marquette and reaches .the Jackson mine at
a distance of 14 miles, and at a height of 830
feet above the Lake, and thence is protracted
6 miles further. Instead of a uniform grade
of CO feet to the mile, there is one up grade
of 79 feet, and a descending grade of CO feet,
while the course of the road Is marked by nu
merous abrupt curves, all of which facts have
a direct Influence on its capacity for trans
portation. The usual freight train is made up
of 20 cars, loaded with 8 tone of ore, equal to
160 tons; and to haul back such a-train emp
ty, up a grade of 179 feet, taxes the capacity
of the most powerful locomotive/
The Peninsula Railroad, on the other hand,
starts from Bay des Noqncts of Lake Michi
gan, and runs nearly due North for 15 miles;
thence N. N. W. along tbe water-shed be
tween the Es can aba and White fish rivers for
25 miles in an air-tine; and thence, after reach
ing the region of crystalline rocks, by a more
devious course, tor 22’ miles to the Jackson
mine, making the whole (distance a littleovcr
€2miles. There arena abrupt curves, nor
heayy grades, the steepest being 53 feet—in
fhet, the route affords no impediments more
serious than arc found on the prairies of Illi
nois. The tractive .power of a locomotive
over this road will, be capable of hauling 50
cars each, loaded with B,tons of ore, equal to
400 tons, on a descending grade, with the
ability of hauling them back empty.
A locomotive on tbe Iron Mountain Road
makes two trips in 12 Lours and delivers on
tbe lake shore 830 tons of ore, making a run
of 08 miles. A locomotive on the Peninsula
road, making one trip in 12 hours, 'will deliv
er at Bay des Noqncts 400 tons of ore, making
a run of 134 miles, from which point tbe rate
of transportation will be SLOO less than from
Marquette. - . .
. As a passenger route, it must commond the
favorable consideration of the community.

HHJTAHT ASPECTS.
This communication has nil of the Impor
tance ol a national work. Without it, In the
event of -awar with Great Britain, the whole
commerce of the Lake Superior region could
readily be cut oil; either by the destruction
of the locks of the St Mary’s Canal, or the
blockade of the St Mary's Elver. The waters
of that river, after leaving -the Sant, expand
into ten thousand channels' and embrace as
.tdost islands, among which gunboats of light
droll could glide with little fear of detection;
On the other hand, with Mackinac fortified,
the whole commerce of that region could
be thrown into Lake Michigan, with little
inconvenience, and with no probability of
interruption. . This important work was
commenced in August last, under the ener
getic management of P.H. Smith, Esq., of
this city, as President, and will be completed
bv the middle of June next; and when it is
considered that the route' lay through an un
broken forest, it may be regarded as a splen
did feat in railroad construction.
The snapping, snarling secession con
cern-denounces Congress for cresting the
J nrade of Lieutenant General, and abuses the
' President for conferring that rank on General
Gran’. It denies that Grant is our greatest
nr most deserving General, and makes him
out a rather small potato compared with the
stick-in-the-mud McClellan. If any officer
deserves the laurel wreath It professes to
1 think that tbe copperhead grave digger of the
Cldckabominy Is the Individual, saying:
m other thousand* would speak of him who at
Malvern Diila, Andctam, Sharpaburg, and other
battle-field*. has ehownagcnms lor command, a
caoacltT for the conception and execution of vast,
comcrt'DcnßiTe and logical plana, that entitle him
to a Jolly height in the esteem of both Mends and
enemies.
Malvern Hills! ;• Te gods and little fishes.
General McClellan:, had no. more to do with
fghting the battle of Malvern Hills than the
man in the moon. "While that battle was go
ing on “ Toung Napoleon” was safely encons
cd on board a friendly gunboat on the James
river. Hc.heard the roar of the contest, but
did not sec it. - He was Too much “ demoral

At the battle of AnUotam, where he had
94,000 men against 05,000 rebels, he refused
toTeinf6rce"clthcr~ his right wing under
Hooker and Stunner, or his left nadcr Burn
side, but kept Porter's whole corps of 25,003
men Idle all day. The result was, that what
onghtto hare been & decisive defeat of thej
rebels, resulted in a drawn battle. At
Gaines’ Mill, he allowed Porter's ‘ Corps of
80,000 men to straggle for nine hoars against
70,000 rebels under Dill, Longstreet and
Stonewall Jackson, and only sent to their
relief, towards sundown, two small brigades
0f4,000 men. It was entirely in his power to'
have sent reinforcements - enough to have
completely. repulsed the enemy, and with*
his left wing to have marched straight into ;
Richmond, which was almost undefended.!
Be allowed less than 8,000 rebel troops to

the whole rebel army was crashing his right

TEN THOUSAND COPIES!
It is surely well to print a few copies of
McClellan’s Report It ought to be. kept;
for there ore several objects to be gained by
saving It to posterity, bnt where is the paper
to be got to print them on ? We submit, that
paper is outrageously high now; to exhaust
the stock is to raise it still higher; and every
newspaper and book printer, and reader, is
in danger of being put to tax, jnst to help
out this forest of lottos, Into the world. But
who is to read them? Well, no matter for
that. People are hot expected to read all
that is printed.
But IMs Report is a grand thing in its way.
It was just the thing wanted. Nothing else
would have settled the public mind, and that
of the army, as to Its author. When Web
ster killed Turkman, he had his trial, and was
convicted. Bnt. the evidence was all circum
stantial, consequently, one-third of the peo
ple were not convinced. In this condition of
things Webster made a free and voluntary
confession of the mime, and the case was at
rest forevermore.
This Report is McClellan’s confession. He
had his trial in front ol Washington, and on
the Peninsula. The verdict came in, and
many received it as it plainly was. Bat oth
ers, and especially the Eastern army,
were not satisfied. McClellan was a good fel
low—no doubtofthat. He was a fine looking
officer. He was gifted with the gab; he could
make a book; hp knew what an army want
ed to fit It for a campaign; he was a good
furnisher; he was a fair drill officer; ho could
get up a splendid review; he'could make
hlmsdf popular with troops; Hewas, more
over, an engineer; he could dig like an army
of woodchucks. But he failed—failed miser
ably. He jailed In two things. His young
head was staffed with political theories; be
was fighting the moral and political battle, as
well as the martial, instead of leaving that
to the Administration above him.. And be
sides, his political notions were not sound.'
They were ora crude, pro-slavciy, conserva
tive, copperheadlsh sort, which would never
Lave settled the troubles of the country till
doomsday. They were ol the old threadbare
variety, which had been in use for twenty
years, and which of all things we wanted to
be rid of, and could never do a thing till we
were rid of them. Admit that they were
those of the country at the time—that Is, of a
large part of the country- True, but they ore
those of their authoryet This report proves
it. McClellan can learn nothing. These three
past years have taught him nothing.- And
what is a man good for who is as dry and un
moved as if his head were of solid basswood,
through two such years of history os the
past ?
These political theories, then, carried Into
the camp, were one thing that spoiled him.
The other was an absolute inability to handle
troops in the field. He had no aggres
sive military honor. He could not march
overland, and*attack and conquer. He was
not Sherman, Rosccnms, or Grant. He took
like a gopher to the earth. Instead of march;
ing square on Richmond, fighting the enemy
when he found him, he went into the middle
of the Chickahominy swamp several miles
away, and where there was no rebel near
him and Ixgan to dig. 'When bis ditch was
dug, the rebels came out, got on his flanks
and made him fight with no more reference
to it than if it was In the moon. The result
we all know and deplore.
Now this- Report, for which the whole
world is to.be scoured oi paper rags, is just
needed, as a confession of inability, which
shall Clinch the whole case. A man who
could write such a report as that, proves his
incapacity for successful command. No sol
dier who knows what work in the field is
will believe in him for a moment 'any longer.
We called him 11 Napoleon.™ Bead Napoleon's
military papers. Me has no words to spore.
He makes one sentence, of five words, do
more work than five pages of this stuff A
letter of his seldom covers a page of com
mercial note paper, written in a big scrawl
ing hand; and his words go off like hand
grenades, snapping and cracking with heat
and fire. Be sure a man who in time of war
writes by the ream, cannot fight in the field.
He may sit down to a siege; he may take a
fortress, bnt field work involves motion; and
active working men cannot find time for long
winded stories.
But it Is a great thing for a man in a false
position—bearing a fictitious value, to show
his hand,- and rather than not have It, we
would consent to have ten thousand copies.

On Feb. 16, pamphlet copies of the corres

0f the rebel Secretary of War and the Adjn
tantandthe. .Inspector..General,.daring the.
months of Moy, Jdnc and JuTy,lßC3“wldch~
was submitted in response to a resolution of
the rebel House, adopted on the Uth of Jan

This correspondence is quite voluminous,
embracing as it docs over sixty pages, and
covering aU the lettcre and telegrams which
passed between the Executive and Gen. John
ston from the time the latter was assigned to
the command, of the, army in Mississippi, un
til the 81st of July—nearly one month after
the fall of Vicksburg. -
. - In . thc~ early, part of tho correspondence,
the President urged upon Gen. Johnston the
necessity of making an effort for the relief of
the garrison in Vicksburg,' and on’ the 24th of

-Again, on the 28th, the President telegraph
ed that he had withheld nothing from him
wMch it was practicable to give; that numer
ical equality was not to be hoped for, and
that time would probably increase the dis
parity.
On tho same date Gen. J. telegraphed tho
President from Jackson, Miss., as follows: j
To HU Excellency, the President. i
It U reported that the last infantry coming, leave
Montgomery to-night. When they arrive I shall
bare about £3,000. Pemberton can be saved only
by beating Grant. Unless yon can promise more
troops we most try with that number.- The odds
against ns will bo very great. Can you not add
7,000? Ask for another Major-General, Wilcox, or
; whoever von may prefer. We want good general
officers quickly. 1 have to organize an army and
collect ammunition, provisions, and transportation.

The total of the above is twenty-four thousand

These ore the numbers of effectives. • .
J. E. JOBKBTQH.y
The first point of difference appears to have
been with reference to the appointment of a
Major General for the Mississippi Depart
ment. Gen. Johnston asked for the appoint
ment of Brig.-Gcn Cadmus Wilcox, to which
the Department responded by sending Major
General French. On hearing of the assign
ment of Gen. French to the command of.a
division in his Department, Gen. Johnston
sent the following dispatch to the President,
dated June 10,1863 : : ( ;
To hit Excellency President Davit:
It has been suggested to me that the troops in
this Department arc very hostile to officers of
Northern birth, and that, on that account/ Major-
Gen. French’s arrival sill weaken instead of
strengthen ns. I beg you to consider that all the
officers of Northern ofrth are on dnty in this De
partment. . There is now a want ofMajor-Gcnerala.
It is important to avoid any canse of farther dis
content. , . r • J. E. Jonssrox.
To this dispatch the President replied on
the 11th of June as follows: . . . <*'■:
To General J. E, Johnston: •
Your dispatch received. Those who suggest that
the arrival of Gen. French will produce discontent
among the troops, bccan*o of us Northern birth,
are not, probably, aware that ho is a citizen of Mis
sissippi, was a wealthy planter until the Yankees
robbed him, and before the Confederate States bad
an aj my was the chief of ordinance and artillery in
*tbe force which Mississippi raised to maintain her
right of secession. As soon as Mississippi could
Fparc him, he was appointed a Brigadier General in
toe Provisional Array of. the Confederate State?,
and has frequently been before the enemy where be
was the senior officer. If malignity should under
mir e him, as it has another, yon arc authorized to
notify him of the fact, and to relievo him, commu
nicating it to me by telegram. Surprised by your
remark as to the General officers of Northern birth,
1 turned to the register, and find that a large ma
jority of the number ore elsewhere than in the De
partment of the Mississippi and Eastern Louisi
ans.' Jrn'xcsox Davis.
The next point of difference seems to have
been with reference to the geographical lim
its of Gen. Johnston's military department,
that officer conceiving that his transfer to
Mississippi relieved him from the command
of the Confederate forces in Tennessee. Od
the 12th of June he telegraphed the Secretary
of War from Jackson, Miss.:
“I have not considered myself commanding In
Tcimct'pee since assignment here, and have not felt
authorized to lake-troops-from that department
after having been informed by the Executive that
no mere could be t-pared. To take from Bragg a
force which would make this army fit to oppose
Grant, would involve the yieldiiur of Tennessee.
It Is for the Government to decide between this
State and Tennessee.”
This dispatch was replied to by the Presi
dent under date of June 15:
u To Gen. J. E. Johnston, Jackson, Miss.;
“ Your dispatch of the 12th instant to Secretary
of War noted. Tbe order to go to Mississippi did
sot diminish your authority In Tennessee, both
being in the country placed under tout command
in tbe original assignment. To what do yon refer
as information from me restricting your authority
totransfertroopabccaneenomore could hespaiS
■ed 7 Officers ordered to youlordutygeneraliyare
of course, subject to assignment by you.
In the conclusion of this letter, the Presi :
dent says: .. . * 1
I In no manner, by no act, by no language, either
of myself or of the Secretary of War, has your au
thority to draw troops from. one portion of your
department to another been withdrawn, restricted
or modified.
Now that Vicksburg bos disastrously fallen, this
subject woddprceeni no pressing demand for at
tention, and its examinations would have been
postponed till a future period,bad not your dis
patch of the sth instant, with Its persistent repeti
tion of statements, which I had Informed von were
enormous, and without adducing a single fact to
sustain them, induced me to terminate the matter
at emee by a review of all the facta. The original
mistakes in your telegram of the 13th June, would
cladly have been overlooked as accidental, If ac
knowledged when pointed ont.
The perseverance with, which- they have been
insisted on haa not permlttcdme to pass them by
as a mere oversight, or by refraining from an an
swer to them to admit the Justice of the statement.

The General Assembly of Btiode Island
have passed the following resolutions t
■WnxnEAB, Abraham ' Lincoln, President of the
United States, in the midet of the great trials of a
civil war. begun for no other pmposc but for the
extension and perpetuation of* domestic slavery,
has administered toe National Government with a
wisdom, a patriotism and an integrity which have
commanded the highest confidence of the American
people; and whereas, in the present unhappy con
dition of the country, tbo election; of - a President
ought, so far as practicable, to bo divorced from
party strife and passions, and to he conducted with
paramount reference to the speedy suppression of
the rebellion and *tbc restoration of the National
Union: It is therefore - ;
Eefdrxd, That regarding, as wc do, the admin
istration of President Lincoln as reflecting to an
unusual degree the sentiments of tbe American
people; ana believing it* leading measures to have
been eminently wise, and demanded by the necessi
ties of the country, and especially being sincerely
des irons to discourage all party animosities and
contentions in this time of onr - national perils,- wb
earnestly recommend'.to the loyal.people of the
United States that, disregarding all secondary is
sues, and lopking only to tbe ultimate triumph of
the Union and the Constitution, they unite with
occ accord in re-electing Abraham Lincoln for the
coming Presidential term. *
Referring to tbe passage oi the above, tbe
Providence Journal says:
The discussion and the vote in the General As
sembly yesterday on the resolutions recommend
ing the re-election of Abraham Lincoln, show what
iadeedwas before well known to every one here,
Pint the President baa a deep and strong hold on
tbe affections and esteem of the citizens of this
State, Those who disapproved of the adoption of
the resolutions by the House, on the ground that
such action was not the proper business of a legis
lative body,—and no other ground of opposition
was taken, wc believe,—vied with those wbo favor*
ed the adoption of the resolutions in bestowing
commendations on the respected Chief Magistrate
of the nation,
The Kentucky Kidnapping Trade.
The following, one of the many, taken
from the Frankfort CowmouwaKh, is an ex
ample of an extensive, business carried on In
Kentucky, in the. lace of the President's
emancipation proclamation, and of Its prom

and in defiance of all the military orders, and
expressed and implied pledges to the ne

Washington, Feb. 28,1801.
DEBATE ON THE NAVT APPROPRIATION BILL.
There was quite ah animated debate in the
House yesterday on tho Navy appropriation
bill, wMch finally passed. ; Mr. Holman, of
Ind.. (copper) attacked Secretary Wollsv
whole course; He said there was enough to
make the checks of the American people
mantle with shame, and yet the President re
tains Mm In defiance of the public judgment
against hiza. Mr. Kelley (Union) replied In
defense* of the Sccrclary arguing that the hisi
tory of the Department would hereafter bo
read with patriotic pride. In addition to Its
victories, it had established and maintained
trade es was never before'attempted by any
nation. MK Davis, (Union) of Maryland, sta
ted that the attack on Charleston was a mls
- crablo failure. Tbe charge 'of the famous
“ six hundred ” English soldiers atßalaklava
was not more brilliant and insane. It was got
up by a “ cotton-spinner,” who supposed he
knew better about attack and defense than
Admiral Dupont himself Mr. D. said that
bad Ibis officer remained forty mlnnics lon
ger in action Ms fleet would have fallen Into
the hands of the enemy.. .The Department
refused to take the advice of Dapont and fur
nish him with 25,000 men tq advance by Sto
no and James Islands, while tbe fleet acted in
co-operation.. Mr. Stevens, of Pa., (Union)
deprecated these insane attacks upon the
Administration. If they were continued the
business of Congress would be impeded and
neglected. The general appropriation bills
are yet to be acted upon. Mr. Griswold
(Union) defended the fleet in tho attack on
Charleston. There were scarcely more men
in that fleet than were necessary to man an
ordinary man of war. Tet it received ten
thousand shot ' The Ironsides was not pen
etrated, and only one life was lost, that of
the gallant Rodgers. , The American Navy
stands to-day in advance ofany navy in the
wprid, and onr fleets aro the best diplomats
to prevent foreign interference In our affaire!
Mr. Bice, ofMlnn., presented some statistics
showing the operations of the army. He
wanted them printed. j
Mr. Brooks, (cop.) presented arguments
of a different character, to show that although
we have a navy of COO vessels, onr commerce
has suffered by privateers, since the com
mencement of the’war, a loss of $18,500,000.
Mr. Blair, (Union) of Missouri, defended tho
navy.- The “cotton spinner” was a gentle
man and a Union officer. The Navy Depart
ment shrunk from no inquiry. Could Mr.
Davis and otheJßjsayußjnuch for their for
vorito In the Cabinet i Tbe navy had done
well on the coast, and it bad opened the
slssippi river to our commerce. Mr. Davis
had voted against an inquiry Into the affairs
of tho Treasury Department and be ought to
trust the Navy Department with at least the
same consideration. The Mil as passed ap
propriates sll9,ooo,ooo,including $250,000 for
bounties to seamen. ' ,
ZLENBT W2NTEB DAVIS SPOILING POB A
PIGUT,
As I stated in my sketch of this gentleman,
his organ of combatlveness Is very large:
Indeed it Is much too large. Ho is, like the
Irishman of Donnybrook, always spoiling
forafizht. Be appears to be ever wanderinz
about dragging on Imaginary coat upon tbe
floor of the House and daring any one to
tread upon it On both occasions he has
fought his way Into Congress, and he evi
dently means to keep'flghting, now that he
has got in. But the worst ol It is he seems
to care but little whetberhe “ larrups ” away
at friend or foe. Only give Mai a chance to
fibow*his intellectual muscle and he'll “ sail
in ”to tbe crowd indiscriminately. His fa
vorite object of attack just now is Old Abe,
He hits against him, (like a male animal of
. the bovine species at n piece of red cloth) ihe
moment. his name is mentioned. In the
mean time the President, at tbe White House
when he hears of these reported attacks,
throwing one leg across the other and ex
claims: .
“ Wen, well, it appears to do Mm good,
and as it docs me no injury, (that islaon'c
. feel that it does) what's tbo norm in letting
him have his fling.' If he did not pitch into
me he would Into some poor iellow whom
be might hurt.”...
THE NEW GOVERNMENT LOAN.
•Notwithstanding the report to that effect,
the Secretary of the Treasury , has no Inten
tion to make; an additional issue of five
twenty bonds. The'bill reported .In Con
gress is intended..to. authorize the issue of
bonds redeemable after five years, and paya
ble within forty years, under which authori
ty it is stated Mr. Chase will probably offer
an Issue of five per cent bonds, redeemable
after ten, and payable forty years after date.
The bill is also intended to authorize the is
sue of bonds forthe excess of subscription to
the five-twenty lean. This excess is sold to
be between ten and eleven million of dollars.
The billfrcportcd by Committee of Ways and
Means authorizes the issue of these not to ex
ceed $200,000,000.0f these ten-forty bonds. |
THE BRITISH PIRATES AND MR. SEWARD. ;
It. is now stated that the dispatch of Mr,‘
Seward to Lord Russell, and not presented
by Mr. Adams, was that In which Mr. Sew
ward stated that if the British Government
did not stop the fitting oat of the rams, that
the United States would send armed ships
into British ports and destroy them there.
Though the dispatch may not not hare been
presented, Lora Rnssell was made aware of
its contents, and It appears thought fit to act
go promptly as to make its presentation an*
necessary. This is the reason that Lord Derby
accuses Russell of acting under a threat in
stopping the rams. The reclamation ques
tion as respects the Alabama’s depredations,
has yet to come. '
TOUSG DO2fEKUEWEB A2fD THE MATE OF THE
ESGLIEU HAHE SAXON,
It will be remembered that young Donen
bewer, masters* mute of the U, S. steamer
Vandcrbllt } Eliot a,man named Gray, mate of
bark Saxony captured while taking goods for
the pirate Alabama to the coast of Africa.
Ho bus asked for a trial, which is to come off
here. I learn also that Earl Bussell writes to
Lord Lyons on the subject, and states the
matter is under examination of the criminal
lawyers, and that Lord Lyons is drected to
state to Mr. Seward that if the deposition of
the second mate of the Saxon be true, Don
enhewer ought Instantly be tried for willful
murder. As that gentleman has asked tor a
trial, the whole matter will be soon settled.;
DEATH OP E. P. INGRAHAM,. ESql

aud novelist, died in this city lost evening, of
paralysis, alter a short illness, having been

MARSHAL DAMON’S SALARY OUT DOWN.

THE ATTACKS ONMJ& LINCOLN-—THE PEOPLE
AND ARMY FOR HIM.
I hear that the copperhead sheet here to
day wIU .publish another circular Issued by a
secret society here, which Is inimical to the
rc-uomination ol Mr. Lincoln. These attacks
arc recoiling on the heads of their authors.
Within the post few days the opponents of
Mr. Lincoln’s renomination have become very
much dispirited. -The unanimity of the peo
ple for him Is apparent every day. A gentle
man from tho western army inlorms me that
the idea of running Gen. Grant is not at nil
acceptable to the army. They want him
where he is, which they say is bis proper
sphere. Mr. Lincoln is stated to be their al
most unanimous choice. It is the some with
the Potomac army.

A. Church Edifice Attacked by a mob—
Xho Building Partially De
stroyed—Retaliation An
ticipated—Tho Police
on the Alert.
(From the Detroit Advertiser, Feb. 2Stb.]
During tbc past 'week the Rev, Father
Chiniquy, for a length of time connected
■with the Roman Catholic Church, but more
recently a convert to Protcstanlsm, has been
Iccturingatthcßcv. Mr. Desroche’s church
in this city, to large audiences. We have
from time to time given an account of his
doings here, from which it would appear that
he has succeeded in convincing many who
have hitherto acknowledged the Roman
Church as the true religion, to Protestant
ism. How manvofhis hearers have flocked
tohia standard we know not, bat his themes
have been the topic of conversation among
the congregations of the different churches
of the city. •
Of course, his principal object was to
denounce Popery, and Its • influences,
and being a talented speaker,; it is not to be
wondered that he has succeeded to a remark
able degree in Ids undertaking. His remarks
appear to have met with considerable deri
sion from the Roman Catholic portion of the
•community, and a few easily excited people
of that class had resolved to. be revenged.
Each day the subject occasioned much com
ment, and on Saturday afternoon culminated, ■
we arc sorry to say, in open hostilities. The -
church edifice of Rev. Mr. Desroche, where
Father Chiniquy had been lecturing, was vis
ited by on Infuriated mob, who demolished
the windows and played .sad havoc with the
building generally. The church is situated
near the suburbs of the city* consequently
the damage to the building was done before
any one, except those engaged in the afiair,
knew anything about It i
This outrage created a feeling of revenge
throughout a portion, of the commonlty, and.
& rumor was set afloat that St Anne’s Church
on Darned street would he retaliated noon ;
Saturday night These rumors, Whether
tine or not, rendered precautionary measures
necessary, and Sheriff Fralick was consulted
on the subject of tbe alleged contemplated
raid.' The Sheriff, with commendable prompt
ness, detailed a sufflclcntfbrcc of officers to
guard the building, and after dark they took
their positions to awalfnny hostile demon
etratioue. Up to the hour of going to press
nothing had transpire! to disturb the quiet
