SATURDAY, MARCH 5, 1804.
the iruwTAiir situation’.
The milhaiy plan begins slowly to develop
itself. And as usual, at a certain point intbe
proceedings, the sense of danger begins to
overpower hope, and the feeling of confi
dence to mingle* with and be swallowed by
the stronger, feeling of concern. With a
good many irons in the fire some ofjhem arc
liable to get a trifle too hot
Sherman bolds -central position. His
advance has been fora time reported at Sel
ma, but now we begin to hear that he is still
between Mcredlan and the Tomblgbsb River,
and that lie Is partially fortified. Of course,
if his advance is for any cause arrested, either
permanently or temporarily, he has fortified;
for Sherman is too good a soldier to expose
himself needlessly. Bat there Is evidently no
cause at this distance for such apprehensions
concerning .him as are telegraphed to the
New York WorVh He is strong enough for
any forces known to be in his vicinity; and
if the reportis correct thatLbgan his joined '
him withacavaliy force, he is in a condition
to take care of himself. Even should he
think itrprndent to retreat, there isno known
cause why he cannot, as easily as he advanced,
especially if. he has not yet crossed the
Tombigbee. .
he is at Selma, then it is plain that be
will havcio be looked after; and onr suppo
sition is, that looking alter him is Just what
General Grant •Is and has been doing
this fifteen days past. He will need
to he supported. Bow? Possibly in two
ways; certainly In one. He may need rein
forcements. He will certain need provisions
and supplies./ There are three suppasable
ways of reinforcing him. One, and the most
natural, is by the same route of his advance
from Vicksburg. A force might, or might
not get to h l m , down the Mobile & Ohio
Railroad. Smith andGriereon toiled la Uut
direction, by having too small a command.
With double their force they would have
gone through! ’ Bnt it is by no means- essen
tial to reach him in that direction; and Smith
and Grierson probably served a purpose as
truly asif they had accomplished all they es
sayed. They kept a force larger than their
own from joining Polk. As to getting sup
plies to Sherman down that road, as the
WbiWVtdefeTam talks of; It is all bosh.
Sherman never relied on that road, nor has it
ever been In oar possession.
He may also be reinforced by Grant, direct
from Ghattsnooga—only supposing Thomas
to put Johnston out of the way, at Dalton
and Atlanta. Bnt this supposes fighting, or
foot-racing, and we seem likely to know
which is the order of the day, pretty soon.
Bnt the real significance of Sherman's ad
vance to the Alabama River is involved in his
support from a third direction. Farragat, we.
suppose to be thumping away at Mobile. *We
bear nothing of him since the report that he
woe repulsed from Grant's Pass; and which
may have been a repulse, bnt is much more
likely ain ere - -examination of bis, and which
may, or may not be more seriously repeated
there. Xu some way or other, he is hound, if
possible,- to go into the Alabama River, and
once there with a few vessels, he will find
Sherman, unless prevented by obstacles above
Mobile. With bis success, or with that of
Thomas at Dalton, Sherman is secure between
the rivers,,
But he may need supplies before the ques
tion Is settled either by Forragot or Thomas.
There arc two ways of his getting them.
First, by the route from Vicksburg, and,
second, from the country In which he oper
ates. How for he may depend onthccoun
tiy will hinge upon two things; first, on the
abundance which reigns in that region. We
have been hearing that Central and Southern
the land of plenty for the Con
federacy. As the war has not before visited
that region, we may believe this to be in a
measure true. Then the question is as to* his
strength and ability to pat the country under
tribute to himself, How far can the rebels
concentrate troops upon him, to hem him in
and harass Ideal. This will depend npon the
extent to whfSCihey arc kept alarmed and
lively hy activity fa our armies elsewhere.
As relevant to this question, we may say
that the Florida "Expedition, under Gillmorc,
may have been unsuccessful; but If it has
kept a force a good deal larger than his own
occupied, and away from Sherman, it may
have answered a good purpose after alk The
some is true of that of Smith and Grierson.
Then wc have activity in East Tennessee—
Schofield chases Longst-reet Our forces
move upon Tunnel Hill, and impinge hard
upon Dalton. Of course, Johnston can afford
no help to Polk, who must manage the Yan
kees as he can. Then, too, the Potomac
Army is bestirring itself and Richmond is
for the fortieth time threatened. And what
ever comes ol it, the troops which protect it
must be kept there, if indeed others are not
called to their aid. Thus wo see that Sher
man is aided by activity everywhere.
The policy of eelring and holding a posl-
tion in the heart of Georgia is so manifest
that wc cannot fora moment believe thelVar
Department will suffer it to fail, if it is pos
sible to cany It through- Sherman must at
all events be supported. He is supported by
a connexion with Thomas, or Farragut, or
somebody rise moving on his own route to
his connexion. This latter support is, how
ever, bnt temponuy. The ultimate reliance
is on that River; and one hope is that the
time has come to take It and keep possession.
The conntiy would like to hear from Mr. Far
ragut!
188 PROGRESS OF OPINION.
If vc bad time to think ©fit, there is noth
ing so extraordinary as the present state of
the emancipation question in the United
States. It is becoming plain to the dullest
oi comprehension among ns, that slavery u
dead. Even Brooks in Congress gives mourn
ful assent to the loci. Gov. Hall of Missouri
signs the law calling a convention in that
State, to bring about immediate emancipa
tion, instead of waiting the term of years
already the law there. The N. Y. Herald
plants itself on the-emancipation policy; and
is probably as sincere as it Is capable of being
in regard to anything. And the National
House of Bepresentattvcs commands a goodly
majority for every question which puts a
general or partial question of freedom to
slaves fairly on the record.
'When we remember bow stiffly this matter
has been fought, by copperheads and conser
vatives of every stripe, up to the last few
weeks even; and bow to a recent date, all
the advantages gained in the direction of
emancipation, have been in the shape of sec
ondary or incidental questions, and not on
the direct question itself It seems more like
a dream than a reality. True, It was an
nounced in the beginning of the war, that it
must destroy slavery.. But this declaration
expressed more often a feding than any dis
tinct perception, or even expectation. Many
uttered it who meant after all to do all they
conld to hinder it; and'bf such as hoped for
Its truth, the ffcara of many that
it would somehow tall to prove
true, outnumbered their expectations.
Bo long had we been accustomed to
be bullied and outraged on every question of
freedom, that both its friends and foes bad
came to consent together that Slavery was
perpetual, so far as any sure probability of
its extinction was concerned. And in so far
as a confidence existed, with those who
hoped to sec the end of it, it was a faith rath
er than a sight
Bat the fact, like old John Brown's soul
has been constantly “ inarching on,” from
the very beginning. The very fact that the
rebels had mode war, determined a large
number, on the Instant Oen. Butler from
casting thirty-six—or fifty-six, or possibly
more consecutive ballots for Jefferson Davis,
to be the now President of the United States,
declared, that if the South made war, the
North would fight her, and he as one of the
North; and that a toar icoidd destroy Slavery’.
and in a year’s time he had on the harness.
And from the day that he took the sword he
has acted upon the theory of his prophecy.
Bui while a multitude in the same politi
cal position went with Butler, a multitude
hung back, Slavery was too sacred a thing to
be meddled with. They had worshipped the
old smoky-demon so long, that it was vener
able in their eyes. Had not Slavery always
existed In our country; and did not our Fa
thers, and the blessed Washington bWivlf,
uphold It? If we polled that down would
not the whole fabric tumble?
Besides, what was It that had been prqfiia
lit If not Slavery ? Where were cotton, and
sugar, and the Southern trade without it?
And not these Southern slave
bold era glorious fellows ? Who would come
North for.travcl and money spending, if their
craft were broken up. And then, were net
the slaves black; and was not Hama vile fel
low, -and did not Canaan get cursed ?
And. so, between these fears and
superstitions, and the smell of Egyptian
garlic, a motely crew, of old Hunkers and
Stiver Greys, and fossilized men of many per
suasions, have singly and In packs fought on,
determining that come what would, the old
Dragon should not be pulled down. At every
shot that struck It, they raised a howL As
its legs and p™* got broken, and the splin
ters fiew like rain, their frenzy was unbound
ed. Its indignities drew their curses; and
its misfortunes thUr tears.
But neither threats, curses, nor tears could
stop dhe destruction. From the day the war
began, slavery began to die. Every shell that
exploded set loose a bevy of chattdlxed Afri
cans. Each minnie ballet set a pair of black
-legs running. Each march of an army enfran
chited a district. Tlic whole army became
Abolitioniste. To send ft boy to the war was
was to make a WUbcrforcc. Abolitionism
gleamed from every bayonet, and spoke with
every; musket shot. It made orations at
Shiloh, and Donelson, and Murfreesboro, and
Vicksburg. The Potomac army pftyed “con
servative,” and the Potomac army was hum
bled. McClellan blocked the wheels of eman
cipation, and he got run over, and poked
aside. - Lincoln held back till he saw ruin in
every way bnt that. But the hoar he uttered
his Proclamation of Freedom, success perched
upon his bonnprs, and has never left him till
this day. The path through the Bed Sea was
the only one that was safe, and that has been
as the dry land. '
Now, wo have got over the crest of the
hill; the crisis of emancipation, as a fact, is
passed. Its enemies, are giving it up and
joining in with the multitude that decree Ik
And those who have watched 'the .tides ,< of
public opinion in this country for tbepast
twenty years will know what now to expect.
Freedom—freedom to all, black as well as
be the most popular thing the
•nation has known since the revolution.
When a great course of public policy is.onoe
understood to be decided on, it is wonderful
how the people In this nation fall in with it.
Thus' the old Whig party gave up, one after
another, the great measures for which they
had fought many a political campaign—high
tariff national bank, and sub-treasury includ
ed. Thus the nation had settled on subser
viency to slavery, though they abhorred the
thing by itself
Now, then, that freedom is decreed, only
give the people to see that ItisaaeCtled
thing, os sure to come as the day to dawn,
and those.‘who oppose It will be as owls in
the day time; yon will have to hunt them in
impenetrable thickets.' Vallandighams will
be like serpents bottled in museums; Voor
beea'ea as the tasks of wild hoars, laid up on
shelves, rare and curious; while the Woods
and Coxes will go Into the garret, among dry
and useless herbs. Heaven speed the day.
THE CHICAGO KBDIOAK JOUKIVAL.
We have received the February number of
the Chicago Medical Journal, published and
edited' by Do Laskie Miller, M. D., and Eph
raim Ingalls, M. D. This excellent medical
periodical has now reached its twenty-first
volamc and attained a maturity .of. existence
which should commend it to the fraternity
and numerous class who' are more or
less dependent upon the fraternity. The
present number contains original papers by
Drs. Brooks and Holmes of this city and Dr.
Eaton, of Peoria, besides pertinent and well
selected suggestions and editorial matter/
The prominent standing and long experience
of Drs. Miller and Ingalls in the medical
world, arc a sufficient guarantee of the char
acter and authority of the magazine. We
most heartily commend it both to those who
prescribe and those who take.
fg* Wc have at lost full accounts of the
Florida battle. It proves to have been he
roically fought, with a decided moral suc
cess, and with a less degree of physical fiiil-
-are, than -was feared. Fire thousand men are
suddenly plunged, oiler a long march, unfed,
into a fight with twelve thousand- What could
he expected In such a case ? Yet they held
their ground unflinchingly from half-past 3
p. nu till 5 o'clock, -when, with both parties
in position, the battle ceased. Of course the
five thousand drew oft They left five pieces
of artillery, whose horses and men were shot
down, and a good many small arms, much
cqulppage, etc., which the exhausted soldiers
could not cany away. Two hundred men
were left on the field dead; and three hun
dred were too severely wounded to be re-
moved;, while seven hundred of those who
were slightly hurt, came, or were brought ofl;
The retreat was deliberate and orderly, and
was not materially molested.
.But why such a battle as that ? No Gen-
eral of prudence, and with accurate knowl
edge of tke facts, would plunge his forces
into such a fight Gen. Seymour most have
acted on wrong, or defective, information.
How grave his offense will be deemed, we
cannot say; hut he can scarcely come off
without blame.
One thing is evident The pains of the
enemy to concentrate so large a force in
Florida, proves that there Is some object of
importance to them in keeping us out We
have no doubt as to wbat the object is.
Florida is nearly their sole reliance for beef
cattle for their army. It Is, of course, a ten
der spot to be touched. Now it is a safe
Tnarim in war to fight your enemy just where
he would rather yon would not. Be would
prefer that we keep out of Florida. That is
a good reason for our getting in. But we
are not restricted to the present base of ope
rations at Jacksonville- There Is a railroad
from TaHahasse to Apalachicola Bay, at St
Marys; and the Apalachicola River is not far
oft Bnt n better force than five thousand
will be wanted to cope with fifteen thousand,
if field fighting is to be done.
PERSONAL.
Bcv. Edwajh> Hitchcock, D. D., I*. L. D.,
from 1845 to 1854 President of the Amherst
College, died of consumption at Amherst on
Saturday last, at the ago of TO. Ge was born
in Deerfield, Mass., May 24,1793. Ge entered
the ministry at Conway, where he remained
from IS2I to 1825, when his failing health in
duced him to accept the professorship of
natural history and chemistry in Amherst
College. From 1845 to 1854 he was President
of the College. During his presidency he
gave Instruction in natural theology and
geology, and it was through his exertions
that professorships were founded at Amherst
in these branches.
To the world at large Dr. Hitchcock is
chiefly known by his eminence In scientific
attainments, especially geology, in which
department be probably bed no superior In
the world at the time of his death. He sug
gested and executed the geological surrey of
Massachusetts, the first scientific surrey of
an entire State under the authority of the
Government in the world. He was the first
to scientifically examine and classify the fos
sil foot prints in the Connecticut valley, and
his ichnological cabinet at Amherst contains
specimens of all those known remains. He
was the originator and the first President of
the American Scientific Association, and the
last Congress very properly named him as
one of the fifty incorporators and members
of the American Academy of Arts and Sci
ences. He was quite a voluminous writer on
scientific being particularly distin
guished by his writings on natural theology,
and the connection of religion and geology.
He was also deeply Interested in the subject
of temperance. Early in bis residence at
Amherst he published several works on that
subject, some of which were* re-published in
England. He commenced his career as an
author by conducting an almanac for four
years, before be was out of bis teens; and
the curious in such things can see in the Am
herst College library a dingy little book pub
lished in 1815, “ The Downfall of Bonaparte,
a tragedy,” one of the first works of the
great scientific writer and expounder. In all
be bos published more than twenty volumes,
besides sermons and tracts, and contributed
many articles to periodicals. His latest
work, “Reminiscences of Amherst College,”
is but lately from the press, and all the Col
lege graduates and friends arc rejoiced that
be who knew Its history best lived to write
it.
4>rtwT.wfi W. Wnint died at Alexandria,
(Egypt,) on the 21th of last January, aged 47
years. Mr. March was a native of New Hamp
shire. He was many years since associate
editor of the New York afterwards
Washington correspondent of the New York
Bvetdng iW, and then “Pequot” of the
Boston Courier , In the literary world he
contributed a lively and pleasant Journal of
Mr travels in tbe Andalusia and Madeira, and
his Reminiscences of Congress, in which he
gives an interesting sketch of Daniel Web
ster, who was an intimate friend of Mr.
March and his family. The Tribune says of
him that bis political life was one of promise,
but neglected by somewhat ofapoco corante
disposition, and the sacrifice of much ol his
time to an invalid reflation. Thus suddenly
cut off in the full tide of life and health and
fortune, his death will be deeply felt by his
friends, and be bad many, far and wide, to
whom be had endeared himself by his singu
larly bright and genial temperament and gen
erous character. There are a few more closely
connected with him, to whom his loss will
cause opMng hearts, and leave a void in life,
not easily to be filled.
Thomas Tieeston, of the well-known firm
of Spofford & TUeston, of New York, died in
that city, on Monday morning last, aged 71
years. He was one of the oldest and most
highly esteemed merchants of New York.
Hewas born in Boston. When IS years of age
he apprenticed himself to a printer in his
native city, and afterwards became a partner
In the firm under whom he learned* 1 the art
preservative of arte.” He was for a short
time tbe editor of the Merrimac InteUigencer,
a weekly Journal published in Haverhill,
Mass. In 1818 he formed a business relation
with Mr. Spofford, then of Haverhill,“for the
sale of boots and shoes, extensively manu
factured in that town. In 1822 the firm of
Spofford & TUeston became the agent of the
Boston and New York line of packets. Four
years later Mr. T. extended his enterprise In
a Southerly direction, and engaged In the
South American and Cuba trade, which has
been continued to this day. In 1850 Mr. T.
became thcowncr ot the Dramatic, Line of
packet ships between New York' and Liver
pool. In l&tOhewaselcctedPresldect of the
-Fh'cnix Dank, New York. He was also
Chairman of the Clearing Bouse Association,
and lor many years was a leading spirit in the
Atlantic Insurance Company. The Tribune
says he a thorough business man, “bom to
lead and command.” When sloops were
used, ho built,schooners; when , brigs were
the fashion of the times he launched ships;
when ships became the chief craft at our
ports, ho ordered steamships. A man whose
industry and energy hare been crowned with
a princely fortune, and he’ leaves with it the
of an enviable reputation.

produced upon his captor. When he was
brought in the scoot came to Col. Bryant

a lion 6f at Harrisburg, being escorted to the
Capitol by a great procession, with banners,
speeches and hurrahs. The first business,
after taking his seat, was the passing of the
Soldiers’ Voting bill by 17 to 16, every He
publican voting Yes, and every- Democrat
Nay. This result was hailed .with tremen
dous cheers. The Democrats then filibus
tered to prevent business going on, and final
ly refused to vote at all. Their rage at the
possibility of soldiers voting was as hit

THE LOUISIANA ELECTION,
non. SUclmel H&hn Elected Governor.
Wc have received through the courtesy of
Edward Spencer, master of the steamer Em
press, a copy of the New Orleans TTw«r, of
the 23d nit., containing news from the elec
tion,which transpired on the 23d. The Tmes
eays editorially:
The election yesterday for Governor and
other State officers was marked throughout
by the greatest qnict and good order. From
the opening to the close of the polls consid
erable spirit was manifested by the support
ers of the various candidates, and election
eering arguments and artifices were availed
of, but not the slightest breach of the peace
occniTcd, as for os we were able to learn.
Remembering the scenes of past rears
which have attended the polls, and fooUy
disgraced this city, the good order which pre
vailed yesterday is a very high compliment to
the admirable government of the city at this
time. And now that the administration of
both State and city aflalrs is about to pass
from the care of the military into the hands
of civil officers, let ns hope that the reins of
Government have been given to men evenr
way worthy and competent, and who will
exercise the greatest scrutiny and caution in
the appointment of all those under them..
The result of the election can scarcely have
disappointed any one. Public opinion had
for some time regarded the election of Mi
chael Halm as an event of almost certain oc
currence. The friends of Mr. Flanders scarce
ly honed to succeed, while the adherents of
Mr. Fellows knew they were greatly in the
minority, with no apparent chance whatever.
The returns, as far os received, indicate
that Ur. Hahn has {Killed more votes than
that of the aggregate number of his oppo
nents, and is, beyond doubt, elected to the
important office of Governor of Lonlsla na.
The returns from the country parishes may
vary,; bnt cannot change this result. The to
tal vote is greatly beyond that required by
the President's proclamation.
And bow, as the restoration of civil Gov
ernment to Louisiana, and free State auspi
ces, has been most happily Inaugurated, we
devoutly trust, and confidently believe, the
future of our State will be all that has been
predicted for it, one of unexampled progres
sion and prosperity.
The following is the result for Governor as
faros ascertained:

Speech of tlic Emperor of Austria,
The session of the Beichsrath was dosed
on the 15th ult by the Emperor of Austria in
person, who said:
1 have neglected nothing in' order to maintain
peace. The mission of Austria is to be strong
against any attack but to raise the voice of peace
in tbe council of nations. Oar friendly relations
with tbe Great Powers of Europe promise the com
plete attainment of this subject. The crisis which
tor Tears threatened to occur between Germany and
Denmark has resulted in war, notwithstanding the
endeavors of my Government to exercise a concil
iatory Influence.
In conformity with the vote of the Federal Diet,
I hare, as a German Prince, taken part In the Fed
eral execution, and In concert with the King of
Prussia, the Ducby of Schleswig has been occupied
as a pledge. I confidently hope that the results
achieved will secure a happy future to countries,
the rights of which have long been violated, and
will not endanger the peace of Europe in a more
extended sphere. Austria has shown that in her
rejuvenated form she preserves her good old spirit,
and that the inheritance of her strength and glory
abides with her on the new path of liberty which
she has entered.
Tlic Approaching: End of Slavery.
The Catholic Telegraph of tins week says:
As rats abandon a sinking ship, so the ad*
yocatcs of slavery arc takinjra Ion" farewell
to the peculiar institution. Even Brooks of
the New York JSjprcn has turned his back on
it. Before many months the white laborer
will have a field of enterprise opened to his
energy such as was never seen oeforo in this
or in any other country. Let the church pre
pare for the new order of things. The land
that was desolate shall blossom like the rose.
'Where the pestiferous breath of slavery here
tofore destroyed every holy effort ot our faith
to take root and flourish, now that the evil
is removed, the pure breath of freedom pre
vails; and the sign of the cross will be seen,
where a few years ago no one thought of its
appearance. The enemies of the church and
of our humanity rage in vain. Senseless po
litical prejudices must disappear before the
light of divine truth.
jgpWc find in the New York Evening BM
a lengthy review of the recently published
life and correspondence of Theodore Parker,
which contains some extracts from his many
letters. Among others are the following. In
185Ghe wrote to JohnP. Hale concerning

[From Oar Special Correspondent.!
Sr.Xouis, Marofi 8,
. The effect of removing the so called restric
tions outtrade to the interior of Missouri was
witnessed early this week in the capture of a.
rebel train, loaded with ammunition , and:
guns for rebel guerillas, in the rear of Cape
Girardeau. These goods were unquestiona
bly shipped from this city, ns innocent dry
goods,_boots. and, shoes..and provisions,.for
Cape Girardeau. * No permit or Invoice being
required, there was no difficulty In conceal
ing powder inside dry goods boxes, and
packing revolvers and carbines in boxes of
boots. When they reached Cape Girardeau
no permit was required to ship them by wag
ons to Bloomfield, and when well outside the
military lines there was nothing to pnnrcnt
the rebels taming-their heads sonihward-for
rfhfl in Ai-kaiman This intention was
luckily frustrated by the vigilance of our cav
alry; bnt.how much powder, and shot and
how many guns are going into the hands of
the rebels every day since the removal of re
strictions on. trade, is on Interesting question
: which a guerilla outbreak in an unsuspected
locality may determine.' In spite of the mer
chants, itho thought they suffered by these
-restrictions, Secretary Chose was ail along
right. i, i.
The organisation of .the so-called Demo
cratic pony In this State is simply an attempt
to galvanise the old pro slavery secession
party into lire. Bnt just so far it succeeds
it draws off from the strength of. the conser
vatives, who by rejecting the soldiers votes
elected tiie conservative Supreme Judge at
the late State .elec,non. The Copperheads
were only Gradual Emancipationists while
they thought it necessanr to defeat the Radi
cals. They detest the Blair men os heartily
as the Radicals, and have declared in their
meetings that henceforth they will only sup
port the true blue Democratic ticket. If
they adhere to this determination the Con
servative Emancipation party will be in a
small minority. Last spring when three tick
ets were ran for city officers. the Claybanks
were third In the race, and so it will be in
the State.
• The position of the Missouri Germans on
the Presidential question is not singular.
They prefer Fremont before any other can
didate. The Watliche Ihst and the licio ’ Ziei
this morning hoisted Fremont’s name to the
masthead. They would he .willing, it is be
lieved, to give up Fremont at Baltimore for
cither Chose or Ben Batter. As it is avowed
' that they mean to defeat Lincoln’s nomina
tion if they can, they are placing themselves
and the Radical party in a very unfortunate
situation, by declaring virtually they will
not support the Baltimore nominee if that
nominee is Mr. Lincoln. Under such clr
caxDstances they cannot claim ad
mission as delegates to that
Convention. They most pledge themselves
to abide by that nomination. Indeed this
Missouri question, with its various shades of
parties, is getting more and more mixed up
every day, and it must puzzle distant specta
tors immensely. The President has it in his
power to simplify the matter by a stroke of
a pen. Here the Federal officers are hostile to
the only Union men who can save the State
and hence the hostility of these fat-fed offi
cials reacts against Mr. Lincoln, nor Is it rea
sonable to expect that radicals who have re
ceived nothing but abuse from these men will
second their efforts to put the President on
the track a second time.
The steamboat incendiaries ore still watch
ed carefully. One of them, named Ginlan
has been convicted of being a rebel spy, and
of setting fire to the steamboat Chancellor,
and to destroy Government property. He
has been sentenced to bo bung at such time
as the Commanding General shall select. As
his guilt is beyond question there ought not
to he any mistaken clemency in his cose. An
example made of this incendiary would deter
others from arson in coses where many lives
might be otherwise endangered. Just now
the safety of steamboats engaged in Irana
portiog immense supplies to Gen. Grant’s
armies is a matter of the very highest impor
tance to the country. Steamboat men are In
the heigbth of prosperity now, and every de
scription of steam craft is In demandat cnor
mnus prices.
Somcol our merchants have received large
orders for plows, and other agricultural Im
plements, and provisions, from the Yankee
Invaders who have taken possession of cot
ton. plantations, all along the way from
Helena to Kew.iOrieaas. 1 One order calls for
six dozen plows, aid one hundred mules.
Many St. Louis men ore engaged in running
these plantation. Some or them are under
the protection of loyal widows, thus revere
ino the rule, and many will realize handsome
fortusea In one year’s work, provided they
arc let alone by the guerillas. It Is their in
dustry which Is beginning to make Southern
trade onco more lively in this vicinity, and
probably in Chicago as well.
The managers ot the Mississippi Valley
Sanitary Fair contemplate the biggest kind
of a success. They have orderca the con-
strnction of one building 500 feet long by
114 wide, witli two C 5 feet wings. This is
designed os a commencement. It will be
located in the heart ol the city, on a public
square. Arrangements have been made for
other buildings in town, and for an Immense
cattle show on a suburban race-trade. The
Fair managers have set their hopes very high
and are busy circulating appeals designed to
reach every hamlet in the Northwest, asking
for contributions. They fed that $500,000 ii
a big sum of money, bnt think it can be
raised by diligence and economy.
The guerilla question has has almost ceas
ed to be interesting. There are small gangs
in the Southwest, hovering near the public
roads, ready to pounce on stray parties of
three or four for the soke of their horses and
clothing, and since the stage rohbeiy in the
Big Finer, near Lebanon, an efficient escort
has been provided to keep off bnahwhackers.
One of the mysteries of the war is how bush
whackers subsist their horses in the South-
west. The whole country hss been foraged
over in vain by our cavalry without discov
ering either hay, oats or corn, and certainly
there is no grass at this season.
Gamblers are beginningto gather in this
city again in spite of Gen. Fisk’s order of ban
ishment They arc less audacious, however,
and keep to their dens closer, but as their
victims are chiefly military men, it would be
a public benefit to have Gen, Fisk reissue his
order and expel the light-fingered gentry a
second time.
The declarations of Copperheads in other
places that slaver; is scad, have in sub
stance been echoed often by the Missouri
Republican. It used to sa;to its Missouri
friends, when advocating emancipation, that
slaver; was dead in Missouri, and hence it
was desirable to ■ abolish it legally, but in a
gradual manner. Let the Copperheads move
on. After awhile they will come around to
our platform and assert the necessity of bury
ing the institution beyond the possibility of
resurrection. ’
The Paw Paw militia in the northwestern
counties are as odious to the people os ever.
These malitiameh arc never heard of attack
ing the rebels, but their animosity against the
terrible Radicals is something fearful. Gen.
Rosecrans ought to order these illegal' mail
tiamen to disband, give up their arms and re
turn to their homes. They oppress Union
men and delight secessionists-by their one
elded conduct
More Copperheads werehorrified yesterday
—several colored soldiers insistedupon riding
In a street car some two miles instead of
walking. This conduct being contrary to the
mice of the railroad company came ncarpro*
during a row.
An immense amount of supplies for Grant’s
armies continues to go forward from this
point and it is very gratifying to observe that
the reports of more than double the quantity
shipped hence, going forward from Cincin
nati, Chicago and Louisville, arc confirmed.
God speed Gen. Grant and may henothaveto
fall back for provisions.
ABBEST OF A MIJBDEBEB.
He Is apprehended four years alter the
Commission of the Crime*
[From the Davenport Dally Gazette, Starch Sd.]
Yesterday ailemoon Capt Egbert, Marshal
Means ana officer Severance arrested at a
small saloon on Brady street, opposite the
Post Office, a notorious villain and murder
er, who among many other crimes, is said to
be guilty of tne shocking murder that took
place near Ottumwa, Wapello county, in
this State, some four years ago, the victim
of which was a young girl whom this man,
McCombs, and an accomplice named Law
rence, bad abducted from her home in Rock
ford, 111. The circumstances accompanying
this atrocious crime arc yet fresh in the mem
ory of many of our citizens.- Large rewords,
amounting to $2,000 in all, were at the time
offered for the apprehension of the criminal,
hut without avail Although he was at dif
ferent times tracked by detectives very close
ly, he always managed to escape and the
hopes of ever getting him had of late almost
vanished. The circumstances that led to
h!s discovery and arrest arc somewhat sin
gular and were purely accidental A young
soldier who Is at present stationed at Camp
McClellan, and who knew this man Mc-
Combs previous to the commission of the
murder referred to, happened to meet him in
this city and recognized him. McCombs
bad been in the employ of this young sol
dier’s father for three years, near Rockford,
HL, and was recognized by him instantly.
The young soldier being cognizant of the de
tails of the murder and the fret that Mc-
Combs and the girl leit Rockford together,
Immediate! informed Capt. Ward, at Camp
McClellan of these frets, and a messenger
was sent down to Capt. Egbert, wbo accom
panied by the young soldier and the two of
ficers above mentioned, started out to find
the individualy. He was found at the saloon
just as he had concluded a trade with a man
for a horse for which he paid SIBO. When ar
rested he quietly asked “what for ?”
but made no resistance. He was then taken
before Justice "Wheeler and ordered to be
committed for examination. The man who
had sold him the horse agreed to give him
back $l7O and retake tbc horse which was
agreed upon.
McCombs seems flush with money, and
when arrested evinced not the least uneasi
ness. He sold nothing about the affair, and
only remarked that all be wanted was a frlr
trial. His business of late is said to be en
listing and deserting. He would enlist at a
certain place,'receive the bounty and premi
um, and then desert as soon os possible, in
order to rc-enact the proceeding at some
otber placc. He Is also reported to be a deal
er in counterfeit money, and to judge from
his looks be seems capable of doing almost
anything but a good action. Bis examina
tion wlu probably take place as soon as nec
essary witnesses can be procured.
His accomplice, Lawrence, has not been
heard from since the time of the murder. It
was at one time reported, that he had also
been found murdered somewhere, bat of this
there is no certainty. The young woman
whom these two scoundrels abdneted from
her home, seduced and then murdered, was
the daughter of respectable parents living in
Kockfora, Hi. She fell into their meshes by
.means best known to themselves.' The trio
traveled together in a light spring wagon

Gee. Grant** Medal—Xlio Design by a
CblcogoArtbt.
[Corr. Cincinnati Commercial.]
It haa been stated that'tho design for the
medal awarded to Geo. Grant has been made
by Mr. Lcitze, a New York artist.. Such is
notthefact; Mr.*Leitze ? fl design-did not
meet the approbation of the awarding com
mittee,-and the work is now in tho hands of
Mr. Anirobue, of Chicago,- who. has lately
famished an admirable fall length portrait of
Gem Grant, which is attracting much atten
tion at the capital. Mr. ■ Antrobus’ design is
a figure of Liberty seated on a-sphere,, the
upper arch of .which is: draped. In a United
States Bag, pendant irom the month of an
eagle in flight, at the right hand side of the,
flrarc. Beneath this, at the right hand side
of .the sphere, is Lookout Mountain, and .on.
the, , left Vicksburg, a pyramid of flags and
spears, based by a cannon, dividing these, two
memorable scenes in tho history of tho war.
The eagle is represented as carrying the . flag
from Vicksburg to Lookout. Seated on the
sphere is the Goddess of Liberty, holding In
her right hand a chaplet and shield. On the
shield is inscribed ** Donelson.” Surround
ing the whole is a circular space representing
the Mississippi River, on which are floating
gunboats and commercial steamers, and this
is again surrounded by an outer rim,. con
taining thirteen stars, representing the thir
teen original States of the Union, with a
wreath of olive and laurel intertwined at the
base. In a scroll floating over, the Goddess
ol Liberty is to be a motto, not yet decided
upon. On' the obverse side of the design
there is a profile of the General, surrounded
by a deep border, at the base of which arc
two Uniied States flags, crossing each other
in tho center, the folds of which are entwin
ing the cotton, tobacco and rice plants and
the sugar cane, typical of Gen. Grants car
rying the flag of the Union through the
Southern States. In the upper seml-clrclo
the name of the General appears m full—
Major General Ulysses S. Grant Outside of
this there is another rim, containing thirteen
stars, and on inscription of the'act of Con
fress awarding the mcdaL The design is a
eaulifal one, and when finished the medal
will be tho .finest thing of tho kind ever
made in this country. It will cost over
$3,000. The workmanship alone will cost
over $2,C00. It is to be executed at the mint
in Philadelphia, and will require fully three
months to complete it. It will be four and
a half inches in diameter, of solid gold, and
without diamonds or iewels of any Kina.

In Damtstlc Exchange, we noticed sales, to a mod

The operating expenses, from the figures above pre
sented, are 58 per cent upon gross earnings, about 5
per cent over expenses of last year—the rate then be
lag about fifty-three per cent—an excess reasonably
accounted for by the higher value of fuel, material
and labor. If, however, there were deducted from
the amount stated the sum of 82,000, expended in the
construction of a |new grain elevator, passenger de
pot and the Des Plaines bridge, properly chargeable
to the Improvement account, the ratio of expenses to
earnings would be reduced to 54 per cent The
amount of Btate,county and municipal taxes (amoant
ingthlsyeartos72,2lo.l3) have always been charged
to this account, a procedure not adopted by many
other roods, and not strictly forming any part of oper
ating expenses.
The amount of the original bonded debt of the com
pony is $3,171,600. This amount has been further in
cieased this year by the issue 0f5189,000 for the pur
chase of the Elgin and State Line Road, with Us roll
ing stock, connecting with the male line of road near

During the post year the Government made requisi

There hire been built, during the year, 60 box, U

CLOSE OP THE WEEK.
Ttuufay, March I.— Only ICO fresh stock, and but few
left over trem yesterday* and no decline in the mar
ket. Indeed, it Is a little stronger than yesterday, the
weather being colder, with a dry snow falling. 801 l
Beef is worth to-day 15c V B. Look for lower prices
next week, and It we co not see them we will look
again. We can no longer make calculations about
supply nor price. It Is certain that with the present
rate ol supply prices will keep up at a very high point,
If not as high as this week. If the present rate contin
ues. the consumption of Beef will certainly decrease,
and botchers will fail to make any money. We cer
tainly think It tbedntyof all families to study econ
cmv, nuil not eat roast beef and stcaka at 23 cents a
pound. They can cat cheaper food, and If Cattle most
make the passage from La*e Erie without food or
water, and not be able to get a drop In the yards* and
?o thus to the batchers, people can eat healthier food,
t is quite time tor improvement to this respect*

The market last week, notwithstanding the buoyan
cy and firmness of provisions, was very dull for three
or four days, the few hogs taken from the pens being
for slansbtcring on account of holders. On Saturday
there was some Improvement, and hopes, were enter
tained that prices, which on that dnywereat the hi ch

Monday, however, the market relapsed Into dullness,
and transactions for the greater part of the day con
sisted of a few light lots only for the retail trade. To

charged hands, and the market closed at the follow

A few small lots have been packed brother parties,
which will make tbe total somber fully 80400. Tbe
somber packed last season was 00400, mowing a
decrease of 10,000 from last year's business. This
decrease was wholly caused by tbe fsilnre on the
part of the Hannibal & Bt. Joseph railroad to dellTer
the bogs te osr packers as agreed. Tbe lali
ore was partially caused by the enow-blockade,
wblcb occurred In the midst of the packing season; but
an tosufllclcncy of rolling stock had folly as much, if
not more, to do with It than anything else. Had they
fulfilled their contracts the number packed would have
exceeded that of last year by at least 20,000; os It is.
*200,000 will not more than cover tbe losses sustained
by our packers In consequence of this trouble.
J.M. Rawlins* Co. packed about 7,000 bogs In St.
Joseph, which they were unable to got here. E. Wells
has also packed quite a number, tbe exact amount Is
not at present known, the product of which belongs to
the city, although It is not included In our estimate.
The yield of lard and grease Is about 9 ns less to the
bog than last year. Folly 20,000 dead hogs have also
been steamed by different houses for lord oil and
grease, the product of wblcb we have been unable to
procure.

ket, the quotations of yesterday having been folly
sustained on all grades of stock. Advices from Kew
Tork were rather against shippers, but with a more
active demand for other markets, and bnt a moderate
supply; no concessions coold be obtained from sell
ers. Indeed, for heavy hogs the market was firmer,
and daring the morning there were symptoms of an
upward tendency on prime qualities, bnt the snpply
was ultimately closed ont without any change on pre
vious quotations. Eight hogs are In fair demand, and
with larger receipts would doubtless have brought
lower prices. - For these the market Is undoubtedly
less firm, but without any quotable change.

BEEF CATTLlL—Beceived About 1,100 head of
Beef Cattle, principally good medium to prime and
extra shipping grades; .entered sales 1,196 head, at
t&SC3'.O7X, chiefly at per 100 lbs. There
has seldom been more activity among shippers for
good cattle than we have observed to-day. Advices
from all quarters are most favarahle for buyers, the
only drawback being that the supply of prime ship*
’ptogqualUleslslnadcquatetothedemand. The mar
let Is not only firm at present high quotations, but a
farther advance of SdlAc haabeeamadeto-day. He*
dlum and inferior qualities are less active, and tbo
receipts' have only been closed out at a decline of 10c
per For common qualities there la nodemand,
a fair illustration of which Is seen in a sale made of U
miserably thin steers averaging 1*237 tbs at 32.50, and
which were considered dear even at that, la the
sales :of prime grades we note St head of premium
cattle, sold at the SoutbemTards by J. Adams to Hy
man k Kcble. for the Kew Yorfc market, averaging
1.456 89. at CCJ.DO per head. They were 4 and 3 year
old Durham steers, reared In Sangamon county, Illi
nois i and from the same district 37 head of extra
steers averaging 1,361 os, sold by McCurdy to cash
Mallory & Cook at S&SO 9 100 tbs. From the subjoin*
ed list ft will be seen that several lota Uttlo Inferior.to
these have been disposed of.
