THE NEWS.
It Is Impossible not to fed an anxiety in
fjcholf of Gen. Sherman, whose force occu
pies a most exposed and dangerous position,
to n degree equalled by no otiicr Federal
command since the war began. Grierson, In
-deed, marched sheer across the rebel domain,
but tbc feat was accomplished with cavalry,
whose movements were rapid, whose resting
Tj““ were- wide apart, xrkoßc mo
unity ■WEB a source of safety,
and one easily repaired by the aelznrc of
fresh horses. Sherman, on the contrary, his
a small army, made np -of proportionate
shares of the different arms of the sendee ex
cept that we must believe him to he light In
cavalry.lt having been expected that this lack
■would be supplied by the expedition of Gen.
Smith from Memphis. That has tailed, and
it cannot be otherwise than a serious Imper
illing of Sherman. He win bo endangered
fry light moving bodies of the enemy. His
foraging parties wilt lack the strength and
efficiency the needed cavalry would have sup
plied. It will he one of the miracles of the war
if we have not a disaster ol moment, os
the result of Gen. Sherman’s movement, pre
cipltated by failures and delays at other
points. These have given the enemy the
time and opportunity to mass their
forces and perfect their combinations
sgaiust Sherman, and, though be may escape,
the position 1b full of peril. We might in
dulge in special pleading, and fight Sherman
brilliantly out ofbla troubles, on paper; but
*wc prefer to prepare the minds of our
readers for the realization of the
fact that the hardest work ot this
war is • still before *ll6, There is no
<leed more perilous th«n that of the
liuntcr when be goes in to administer the
<o»}> grace to a wounded wild beast, and
that duty belongs to the present campaign.
Sherman hot ventured within dangerous
reach of the concentrated force of the rebel
lion, and wc can only breathlessly await the
result. It may be glorious, and wc shall not
be tireless ready to chronicle it from having
stated our apprehensions.
Tlic news from Arkansas is encouraging,
both negatively ns to the failure of the rebels,
and positively In respect to Union tokens.
Daddy Price has left the rebel military ser
vice. The rebel General Frost of Camp Jack
son notoriety has gone to Mexico. Union
mass meetings were being held dally, and the
loyal vote at the coming election will he
large. Nearly 3,000 voters have already been
registered at Little Bock. The same dis
patch says that the abandoned ilirms are be
ing rapidly leased, and the prospects for large
•crops arc good. The light of a better day is
breaking in ArU-nr^n^
The Philadelphia merchants evidently be
lieve in the national banking system. On
Friday they sent in a memorial to Congress
praying that the issues of State oanks might
be taxed so heavily as to compel them to
in their issues and windup their business,
leaving the field clear for the National banks.
Tbelr argument is that the issues of the lo
cal banks have already depreciated In value
-and are liable to still further depreciation.

Death •was mode the penalty of military
desertion in time of war, because the experi
ence of all commanders and ail armies, de
clared the exceeding danger to discipline
of such offenses. At this juncture we con
illy spare any element of strength to our
armies. To now lessen the terrors of
the crime of desertion Is to multi
ply offenders. Executive clemency, which
spares convicted deserters, by commutation
to a tar lighter penalty, is misplaced, and
will work harm. To be sent to the Dry Tor
tugas for a few months is what skulking
knaves will little dread. The vision oi a file
of soldiers drawn out for military execution
Is none too powerful a support to the morale
of an army. We are sorry the President has
felt called upon thus to Interfere.
A most damaging disclosure has come to
light, with reference to the reputation of
Gen. Meade. If true, Gettysburg only escaped
being the theater of our shame, by' the fact
that the rebels attacked before our army,
could retreat. It is a shameful page oi the
secret conduct of the war, with further de
velopments to come.
Our Cairo dispatch brings the result oi the
loyal State election in Louisiana. The tick
et, which triumphs by 1,800 majority, was
put in the field by a convention that adopted
the right sort of resolutions, a platform upon
which every lover of good government must
etand. The success of the election is a bright
augury for the permanent establishment of
freedom and the utter extinction of slavery
in Louisiana, after the 22nd day ofFeb., 1861.
The new State officers are as follows:
Governor, Michael Hahn; Lieuu Governor, 8.

Wisconsin tegistntnrc on the
Conduct or tUe War,
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Madihon, March 2,155 L
He Assembly continaod la session last night till
nearly two o’dodt in the morning, occupied with
the discussion of Stark's resolution relative to the
conduct of the war, Ac. Messrs. Barry and Ding
hamas, on the Union aide, and were followed by
HcOany, Democratic, who made a thoroughly
Milesian speech, intimating that Itjwaa an attempt
to overthrow Democrats from expressing their sen
timents.
Mr. Webb (Union) was opposed to agreeing with
the Senate in striking ont from the resolution an
expression in opposition to any propositions of
peace, and severely criticized Geo. B. Smith’s after
noon speech.
Mr. Abrams (Democrat) denied that the Demo
cratic party was disloyal and opposed to the resolu
tions, but declared himself in favor of the war till
the old flag was supreme over all United Slates
soil.
Mr. Sandbome made a thoroughly Copperhead
speech, pleading for humanity to the rebels. He
denounced the President and his policy, and wanted
to pause, consider, and count the cost of tho war.
Mr.Gnsse (Democrat) eald that if these resolu
tions passed, he should advise his constituents to
arm, to protect themselves against the armed Union
Leagues, and contemplated persecution of the Dem
ocrats.
Buhhcll, Union, made a very eloquent speech,
advocating the resolutions, and especially the as
sertions in them taken from Douglas, that there
were only two parties—patriots and traitors. He
defended tbc coarse of the Administration since It
had laid aside the kid glove policy, especially in
employing blacks. He showed the absurdity of
saying that certain abolitionists caused this war
for slavery. He made keen thrusts at copperhead
arguments in behalf of tender treatment of the
South, and vindicated Gen. Butler from the abuse
of rebel sympathizers.
After some further debate the Assembly agreed to
the Senate’s Amendment, so the resolutions stand
adopted as follows:
by Assembly, Senate concurring, That,
as our country and the very existence of the best
Government ever instituted by man, arc imperilled
by a most causeless rebellion* the world has ever
seen, and believing, as we do, that, the only hope
of saving the country and the preservation of tnc
Government Is in the power of tho sword, we arc
for the most rigorous prosecution of the war, until
the Constitution and laws shall be enforced and
obeyed, in all parts of tbc United States, and to
that end wc oppose any armistice or intervention,
ormoditatlou from any source, whatever, so long
as the rebels arc found in arms against ihc Govern
ment, and we ignore all party lines, names and is
sues, and recognize put two parties—patriots and
t "shore
i?«o/wd, That we hold it to be the duty of Con
gress to pass all necessary bills to supply men and
money, and it is the doty of the people to render
every aid in their power to the constituted authori
ties of the Government in crushing the rebellion,
and in bringing the leaders thereof to condign pun
ishment.
Jiceo-'ted, That oar thank? are due, and are here
by tendered to oar array and navy for their gallantry
in defending and upholding the flag of oar country,
and the principles dear to every patriotic heart.
Ztoored, That we recognize In Abraham Lincoln
the President of the United States, a statesman of
liberal and enlarged views, great ability and an
swerving integrity, and if the wishes of the people
of Wisconsin are complied with by the National
Union Convention that assembles to nominate a
candidate for the Presidency; Abraham Lincoln will
again be nominated.
It will l>c recollected that these resolutions
passed both houses some weeks since—first and
last by about a two-thirds vote, inclndlng nearly
an the Union men, and second and third almost
nnanimeaely.
Wisconsin is decidedly for Lincoln.
Walworth's resolutions Indorsing the amnesty
proclamation, etc., were then taken up, and Jones
(Dcm.) began talking against them. After fruitless
efforts to stop him, the Assembly, being without a
quorum, adjourned.
This morning the resolutions passed by a vote of
56 to 23.
The Assembly held a long session to-day; but did
nothing elec important, except to moke a bill au
thorizing the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad to
issue preferred stock the special order for Thurs
day.
A good deal of time was consumed in discussing
means to prevent petit larcenies in the Assembly
Chamber, and in talcing on the interest question.
There arc about one hundred bills on the As*
sembly's general file.
The Senate passed unanimously resolutions of
thanks to the Wisconsin soldiers.
The Agricultural College bill came up on third
reading, but was referred to the committee on
claims.
The application for habeas corpus in behalf o
recruits alleged to be only 16 years of age, and en
listed without their parents' consent, was before
the Supreme Court to-day. Decision expected
Saturday.
FROM DIDU^APOUS.
Xbe Indiana State Sanitary Convention
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Ikdcaxapolxs, March 2,1364.
The Convention assembled at Masonic nail at 11
o'clock. A large number of ladies were present.
Colvin Fletcher organized the Convention, with the
remark that this was a Quaker meeting at which
the women could vote. Phillip Ilombrook was ap
pointed President; Bev. Joseph Cottman was ap
pointed Secretary. The Convention was opened by
an eloquent prayer by Chaplain Layton, of the 12tb
Indiana.
Gov. Horton then explained the motives for call
ing the Convention. He said that the Sanitary
Board had been in existence over a year. He had
called this Convention to let the people know what
nsc had been made of the money and goods that
onr generous people had contributed, lie therefore
invited the people to come together to know what
had become of the funds, and how much good was
accomplished.
It was intended when this commission was organ
ised it should attend to the wbnts of every soldier
be he from what State he may. It was found upon
trial that It would be better for each State to attend
to her own soldiers, though assistance has always
been rendered to soldiers from every State.
It has been admitted that Indiana soldiers have
been better cared for than those from other States.
This has been owing to the system adopted, and it
reflects credit on the State.'
Bcports of Aid Societies throughout the State
were read and referred to appropriate com
mittees.
Capt. Atkinson said that he had been serving in
tbc Commission a year. He looked npon this year
spent as the best year be ever passed in bis life. He
had presented the claims of the soldier everywhere,
and that soldier’s claim was always promptly re
sponded to. The soldier would come home and tell
in long and strong terms the glad talcs of the as
sistance they had received from friends at home.
This would be your reward for your generosity. Oar
cause is a noble cause, and no effort should be
spared to carry it or Our noble boys look to us
to care for them while they are fighting for us.
Chaplain Lazier said that he could testily as to
bow the funds of the Sanitary Commission are dis
posed o£ He had heard some people say the goods
were squandered, but he knew different. These
l>cople did not want to give cither from lack of in.
tcQlgence or patriotism. They belonged to that
dose who found fault with everything, especially
with the Government, but be would say that the
funds were properly disposed of He bad been
around the State, made collections, and knew from
personal experience that the boys received all the
money and goods, and it made their hearts glad to
know that their friends at home thought so kindly
of them. He said that tbc army was a big tiring
people did not understand its magnitude. It is on
immense line of bayonets stretched across our
whole front, and necessarily it is very dif
ficult to supply all, but they arc supplied
as fast as we can get to them, and many a weary
sick man has looked up and thanked God that
brightness should break out amid the clouds of
night.
A long and interesting report oi what the Sani
tary Committee had accomplished, was read by
Chaplain Lazier: it had supplied the army of tho
Cumberland with all that was needful for the
wounded and sick immediately alter the battle of
Stone river. Supplies were sent to Memphis and
Vicksburg, and the Indiana boat was the first to ar
rivcaltcrtheenrrendcrofthatstronghold. A large
number of female nurses went with each boat and
did good service in the hospitals. The Soldiers'
Home in this city had fed one hundred and sixty
thousand men since its establishment.
The various Sanitary agendes were spoken of.
Rev. G. W. Monfort, of Washington, was highly
commended. It was insisted upon that so long as
onr soldiers fought for ns wc should not be weary
of doing everything to alleviate their sufferings.
The report was eloquently written and wcD re
ceived. For ten months of 1563 eighty-six thou
sand and eighty-right dollars (*36,085) had been re
ceived. In 1803 one hundred and one thnnawmi dol
lars. In one month of 1861, twenty-six thousand
dollars. Total over two hundred thousand dollars,
all of which had been expended for tbc relief of
sick and wounded soldiers.
The reports of auxiliary Secretaries were then
presented, and Mr. Monfort then addressed the
Convention at some length, detailing the efforts of
Indiana for the relief of Union prisoners at Rich
mond, etc.
A resolution was then adopted, pledging the
Sanitary Commission to further the effort, and ex
pressing hill confidence in the success of tho Com
mlssloß
The proceedings were conducted with great har
mony, aud the Convention adjourned well satisfied
with its labors.

The Draft iu Illinois-miliary Intelli
gence, etc.
[SpccialDlspatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
SrmxorTELD, HI., March 2, IS6L
Tbc order In relation to preparations for the draft
will be carried outpromptly and folly. It is
the re-enlistment of veterans may dear our account
with tho Government, but from official sources I
am advised that it is not settled that wc will not
have a draft in Blinois; besides, the opinion Is pre
valent that another will ho made, and It Is,
therefore, necessary that recruiting should be prose
cuted with great vigor to prevent a draft this
season.
Recruiting parties for regiments organized in
1862, now in tho State, are succeeding quite as well
at the old regiments.
Developments in Jersey, Calhoun, and Edgar
counties, disclose unmistakably the fact that prom
inent members of the E. 6. C.’a are at the bottom
and have instigated the recent riots and bloodshed
Their names are in possession of the authorities

WABQZK6TOX, March 2,18GL
THE mBSIDSNTXAIi UCBBOOUO.
An interesting correspondence has taken place
between Secretary Chase and President Lincoln on
the subject of the Pomeroy circular.'*
Some days since Chase sent a note to the Presi
dent, saying ho had not seen Pomeroy’s circular
until it was published, and that he disapproved of
it; but, nevertheless, at tho solicitation of friends,
be Stood In the attitude of a candidate for the Pres
idency, and be submitted to Mr. Lincoln the ques
tion whether snch attitude was incompatible with
his relations os a member of the Cabinet.
Tho President replied he bad not seen Pomeroy’s
circular at all, and as to whether Chase’s candidacy
was incompatible with his position as a member of
the Cabinet, that was a question for him (Chase) to
decide.
STANTON OK THE DRAFT.
Secretary Stanton, in reply to a letter requesting
his views regarding joint resolution No. 41 of the
Houso of Representatives to continue the payment
of bounties, etc., says, first, that in bis opinion the
requisite troops can bo raised more
expeditiously by continuing the payment of
bounties to the let of April than by other means.
2d. That at present great exertions arc being
made In the several States to raise ihelr quotas by
volunteer*, so as to avoid a draft, tho people pre
ferring that method of furnishing troops.
3d. That Gen. Bumßlde,.Gen, Hancock and tho
State Legislatures and Executives arc earnestly re
questing a continuance of bounties until the Ist of
April.
41b. That in his opinion the joint resolution of
tho Honsc is wise and judicious, and that Us speedy
passage by the Senate would greatly promote tho
public welfare and strengthen' the military force
more quickly and efficiently than can be accom
plished by any other mode.
From late Southern papers the following news Is
extracted:
Charleston, Feb. 22.—The following dispatch
has been received from Lake City,’Florida, dated
Feb. 22: •

23d, says the victory at Ocean Bend was complete.
We captured all their artillery and COO small arms.
Tbo woods are strewn with the enemy’s dead and
wounded for three miles. The enemy’s force, from
all accounts, was 10,000 Infantry and one regiment
and four companies of cavalry.
The Richmond Enquirer had a lengthy editorial
yesterday against the appointment of Gen. Bragg,
as rebel Commander-In-Chief.
All rcbeldom is mystified by Sherman’s move
ment. Some accounts about a week old say that
be is fortifying Meridian—others that he is between
Meridian and Tombigbee. It is certain that he re
mained at Meridian some days, spreading his
forces North, Sonth and East, destroying railroads
centering at that point. On the march his column
moved in the closest possible order, with hardly
any stragglers.
Polk is etfll retiring before him, having crossed
the Tombigbee at Moscow and Dcmopolls. His for

The decision of the Committee of Elections at
their meeting to-day, unscallhg Representatives
Loan, McClurg and King of Missouri, was made by
a majority of one—five against.
Mr. Dawes, of Maas., Chairman of the Commit

Themajorityofthe commlttcehold thatthoaction
of the Government in sending military forces to
polling places, was perfectly justifiable, otherwise
open rebels would have overawed loyal voters, bnt
that the interference of soldiers, alter their arrival,
went to such an unwarrantable extent as entirely
to vitiate elections. On this gnmnd,that the scats in

A tempestuous debate is expected over the re
port of the Committee to-morrow. Samuel Enoz
contestant of Blair’s seat will be heard before the
Committee on elections.
The Whisky bill consumed the time of the Sen
ate from one o'clock to four, pending the question
upon Sherman's resolution to instruct tho Confer
ence Committee to impose twenty cents tax on
stock on band.
The debate was principally upon the parliamen
tary question whether the Conference Committee
could reopen the question of taxing stock on band.
Foster, Conn ess, Cowen, Carlisle, Hendricks,
and Johnson contended that the subject matter of
stocks on hand had been acted on and settled by
both Houses, and that the suggestion that the Com
mittee on Conference could still Impose twenty
cents, or any other tax, was wholly unparliamen
tary.
Mr. Sherman held opposite views, and in tho
course of his remarks said the government had al
ready lost more money by the controversy between
the two houses than tho whole amount that coold
be realized from stocks on hand.
Mr. Sherman's resolution was defeated—yeas 15,
nays 25.
Mr. Conucss moved a new conference without in

and Hendricks were appointed ' thereupon. The
Speaker of the House declared that the resolution
of instructions adopted yesterday most he deemed

as the House conference.

body of the rebels.
Nothing authentic has been received as to the
movements but It is known that no battle had oc
curred np to yesterday noon.
New York, March 2. —Tho Washington special to
the New York Tribune says:
From reports from the headquarters of the army
of the Potomac to this bureau, under date of March
Ist, it would seem that Qcn. Sedgwick was sent to
the extreme left of the enemy to engage bis atten
tion and divert his vigilance from the Rapidan
fords. •
KHpatricE7taking advantage of this, crosses the
river and proceeds to make a rapid detour to the
southwest of the enemy’s main positions around
Orange Coart House and Gordonsville.whlle Castor
swings rapidly around the extreme right of Sedg
wick, via Madison Court House and Stunardsvlllc.
Our latest Information from Kilpatrick was up to
8 o'clock Monday morning, when no was reported
at SpotUylvauia and on the track of Castor. We
have positive knowledge that bis long lines of cav
alry dashed rapidly through Madison Court House
lelore daylight on Monday morning.
It is supposed that Custarhad engaged the enemy
at 1 o’clock,for a very heavy cannonading was heard
at noon in the direction of Orange Court House,and
U it continued up to dark.
“News from Madison Court House, dated Mon
day noon, states that Sedgwick’s corps marched at
sunrise Saturday, with fonr days' rations, bivou
acked at night seven miles beyond Culpepper, and
reached Russell's ford, on Robinson’s river, Sun
day forenoon, where most of the corps bivouacked
and Sedgwick established his headquarters.
“ Talbot’s brigade pushed on to Madison Court
House, with cavalry, under Capt. Claflln.
. “ The Ist division of the 3d Corps came op to the
support of the Oth Corps on Sunday night. At 1
o'clock on Monday morning, Cuatar'a cavalry,
bone and artillery, marched out of the town to
the Rapidan, which was crossed near Barnett’s
ford.
News from the front indicates a battle this morn
ing at Stanardsvillc, between Custar’s cavalry and
rebel infcntry. Rumors persistently place Kilpat
rick at about twenty-five miles from Richmond,
givens Spottsylvaaia Court House and Madison
Court House, and, as a drawback, swell the waters
of the Rapidan six feet over tbo level of yesterday.
The Washington special to the Now York Times
says: The latest Information received from the
Army of the Potomac Is to nine o'clock this morn
ing. Heavy musketry was heard early this morn
ing off to the extreme right, in the direction of
StanardsvQle, where it was supposed that Castor's
cavalry were engaging the rebels. Madison Court
House, as well as Spottsylvaaia Court House ore In
our possession.
There is an evident disposition on the port of Lee
to avoid a battle by [keeping behind his entrench
ments.
Kilpatrick has been heard from. The report Is
favorable. Lee’s communications no longer remain
unbroken.
It was reported to-day at Culpepper that Hamp
ton’s Legion bad been badly whipped by Kilpatrick,
with a loss of several hundred prisoners, and that
Hampton himself was among tbo nnmbcr.
The Washington special to the World says: Gen.
Kilpatrick, with a largo force of cavalry and mount
ed infantry, started three days since for Richmond,
with the hope of capturing that city by a coup de
wjol/»,or compel Lee to leave his intrenchmeots at
Mine Ran ana march to its defense. The rapid re
treat of Longstreet on Richmond is explained by
this movement.
It is rumored that EDpatrick will have the co
operation of a large force advancing up the Pen
insula.
