It is intimated in a 'Washington dispatch
that another call will bo speedily issued for
two hundred or three hundred thousand
more men to finish up the Job of suppressing
the rebellion. The only condition necessary
to the prompt endorsement of the call of
the people will be the conviction that at last
we are to have some rigorous work done and

Vallundlgbam, the banished traitor, Is
writing incendiary letters from British soli
to his Copperhead friends in Ohio, urging
the speedy fruition of the “bloody fruit"
foretold by the rebel p&pere. It is only an
other proof of the complete and hearty Tin,
flerstanding between the Copperheads and
the rebels, that the only resource left to sc
■curc the independence of the Confederacy is
to provoke a firc-in-the-rear In the North. A
remarkable letter from a rebel Congressman,
which will be found upon the third page of
this Issue, adds weight to this theory. The

there, filled with the pretended non-com

many mills and a great amount of stores
were destroyed.

for granted that Gen. Grant intends to com

to the Secretary ol the Treasury the power

stated that the sum nowon band is over £19,-

that the Senate would insist on tbc right to

Gen. Logan has issued a general order in relation
to negroes and the cultivation of crops. The order

raising of produce for the people of the country to

of the more intelligent planters
umt na large and os remunerative crops will be pro
duced as under the pystem of slavery. With the
negroes the syrtem Is not regarded favorably w;lh
any unanimity. In eomc instance's a large propor
ueu of the negroes on a place remain and make
the arrangements 1 have indicated, with their
former masters, while in others a tew,
end ’in many not an African can be
induced to remain upon any terms. This reluc
tance to remain at their former homes is the legiti
mate result of several causes. Every one knows
what a hard master la. With that knowledge.no
one will wonder that the African when liberated,ro
fuses to live with and work for the man who has
Etan ed, over-worked, and treated him with inhu
manity when he had thopowor. All of that class arc
out of the question in the business of hiring to for
mer masters. The chances arc that the terrible ex
penances o! labor for Southern men will deter Utta
from hiring to any native planter. Then.again, the
negroes of this section arc, as a class, ignorant, ua
accustomed to depend upon thsmreivca, have nev
er realized any benefits from agriculture, have
no confidence, as a general rule, in adventuring
alone in Us pursuit. Military life with its bust!?
end parade and excitement, is peculiarly attractive
to them. The first realization of freedom which
the slave experiences is when becomes within tbs
lines of onr armlet*. It is not strange therefore that
gratitude to that which be consider* his liberator,
together with his natural love for the pomp
and circumstance of war. should mike
the great majority of them desirous to remain with
the array. Such is the fact, with regard to the lar
cerpartof the negroes when thev first reach our
lines. There Is no doubt, however, that with pro
fer treatment, encouragement, and assurance from
edenl officers. they can bo induced to resume the
pursuits in which uiey have been reared, except
ing of course such as arc required for military la
bor. The system which is being experimented In
Uu« odd is mofct certainly better in every point of
view than thei policy I saw on the Mississippi dur
ing the Vicksburg campaign.

Gen. Morgan L. Smith made his raid into De Kalb

Gen Smith stationed a soffidcntforco to hold the
position, and left the bridge across the river. It
has proved lo be of great service to ns, and a source
of great annoyance to the rebels. There is

nm. Intriguing for months before hand to be
made Speaker by the aid of the Democrats and the
disorganization of his party; aiding none bat the
enemies of the Administration since he came *
making war upon none but its friends and mem

fortunes wholly with theirs; and It is not probable
that he will have to wait long for on opportunity to
do it.
It will be remembered that Gen. Blair only got
his certificate of election by a pretended majority
of one hundred and fifty-three. The case is now
under examination before the Flection Committee.
The contestant, Mr. Knox—a quiet, gentlemanly

proves his election by a majority of over two thou

The Steamer €. E. Hillman Attacked
by Guerillas,
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Caxbo, March 12,18W-
A detachment of CoL Hawkins’ 7th Tennessee
cavalry, now on scouting service, have lately suc
ceeded In capturing some twenty guerillas, along
withthcirmnster-rolls. Eleven of them were taken
yesterday in the vicinity of Union City.
Gen. Sherman has returned from Kew Orleans,
aud is now im Memphis.
1 have from reliable sources following partic
ulars of the late attack on the steamer C. E. Hill
man, The Hillman left fbr Memphis on the Sth,
having on board a number of returned officers and
soldiers, and fifty prisoners, under charge of a ser
geant arid aix men of the 123 d Hi., and a Urge num
ber of other passengers, stopped at IB, to
wood, but was toW by the citizens that better wood
could be obtained for less price at a landing across
.the chute oo the Missouri shore.
Tha steamer n& the chute, and suiting
fae(, commenced taking on faok Several soldiers
of the Wlb Illinois, and two of the guards, stepped
ashore, the guards carrying their guaa As one of
(be soldiers stepped behind a pile of wood, he woa
confronted by some fifteen gucnllaa, who asked
how many men were on the boat; to which he re
plied that be didn’t know. The guerillas told him
he was a liar, and one of them drawing a revolver,
shot him, the ball entering the palm of his band
aud coming out at (ho elbow. The soldier pretend
ing to be dead, foil upon the ground, where he re
mained until the guerillas were repulsed and fled
into the woods.
One of the guards hearing the firing, and seeing
the party approaching, fired his piece, bringing
down his man. Three guerillas then sprang aboard
the boat and attempted with' matches to set fire to
the hay upon deck, bnt being attacked, tho attempt
was frustrated. They then seized three of the &ith
Illinois, and taking them ashore, robbed them of
thoir money and port of their clothing, their com
rades upon shore keeping np a hot fire upon the
boat in the meantime. When the' firing commenc
ed the sergeants and "guards were in .the after
part of the boat, and - seizing their arms ran upon
boiler deck and opened upon the guerillas.' Three
of the scoundrels were seen to fall, probably killed,
and others wore wounded.. They finally abandoned
the fight and retreated up to the timber. During
the firing a deck hand seized an ‘ axe and cut the
line. Whilst doing this a guerilla took deliberate
aim at him bnt missed his mark. Before ho could
fire the second time the guerilla foil from a shot by
oue of the guards. The pilot stood at his wheel
bravely attempting to work his boat out in the
stream, but one of the prisoners cut the tiller
rope, when the pilot rushed down into the engine
room where with tlic help of a soldier ho seized the
tiller aud succeeded in getting the boat off the
shore. Daring the fight three soldiers who had
been taken prisoners eCected their escape, and by
swimming Buccccdcdin reaching the steamer. The
escape of the boat Is duo to . the bravery of the
guard, who stood their ground undauntedly against

St. Paul, Mten., March 9th, IStfl.)
In consequence of the many applications made
to me for information with regard to the con
templated military operations In this dis
trict during the approaching season, and
the general interest manifested by the
people on the frontier to learn what dispositions
are to be made for their defence, I deem it to be
my duty to state what is proper to be made public
on this subject through the medium of the journals
in tble dry.
Tho programme fixed npon bv Hal. Gen. Pope
embraces three distinct objects:’ First. The chas
tisement and subjugation of tho bands ol sara're j
on boih sides of the Missouri River who continue
refractory and hostile.
• Second, The protection of the overland route to
Idaho by the establishment of strong military
tests within the Indian country, at convenient dis
Third, The security of the Minnesota and lowa
frontier against the hostile'raids. To effect the
firstpnrpoßC a powcrihl column of troops will take
the field as early as the season will permit, to seek
and attack the Indians who are reliably reported to
hare made a formidable combination to dispute the
passage of a force Into the country, and to at
tack steamers .bound for the Upper Missouri
river, and any overland expeditions enroufe for the
gold regions of Idaho. The points where military
posts arc to be established are not yet determined
upon with sufficient precision to enable me to
mention the precise location, but they will be se
lected with the double view or protecting the route
to Idaho aud of deterring tho savages from maldu"
a demonstration in force towards the white settle
moot*, should they be disposed to do so.
The tldnl object mentioned, that of guardin'* tho
frontier against potty raids, is to be accomplished
by the occupation by the troops of such stations
outside the line ol settlements as will serve to
check the pa*sagc of hostile parties so far as the
number of men that can be spared from field ope
rations will permit, and by the constant patrol of
strong parties of cavalry on • both sides of the
Minnesota River. Scouts will also be ported at
the most exposed points to give timely warning of
the approach of danger. It must bo remembered,
however, that hostilities exist between oar Gov
ernment and tbo Sioux bj;nds, and while they con
tinue, the settlers on the frontier should be pro
pared to co-operate in the destruction of any small
parties of savages, who, driven to despenuoa by
their present miserable state of destitution, may

for preceding Gen. McCook in the same direction.
The' Court finds Gen. Crittenden free from all
blame as lo bis conduct in battle, and justifies his
going on to Chattanooga, on the gronnd that all

he did nothing hut bis duty in reporting to Gen.

Washikctok, March 11,1803.
The Senate proceeded to consider tho amend
ment of Mr. SHERMAN, (Un, Ohio), to the reso
lution of the House authorizing the Secretary of
the Treasury to anticipate the payment of interest
on tho public debt, as follows:
And he is hereby authorized to dispose of any
gold in the treasury of the United States not nec
essary for the payment of Interest on the public
Mr. SHERMAN eald there is now gold In the
Treasury to the amount of $19,670,479, over and
above all debts and standing accounts. At tho av
erage rate of receipts of late it will receive be
tween now and the first of Jtdv, $22,072,-
175. To meet dues and interest "up to that
time will require $20,819.71)0, or thereabout.
This will leave in the Treasury at that date the
sum of over $21,100,000. As already said, the Trea
sury now has about $19,700,000 In gold ou hand,
and Is receiving more every day. The New York
banks have on hand at the present time about >21,-
175,000 In gold. It will be seen that of gold in the
country at this time about $40,800,(00 arc hoarded
or withdrawn from the market with the prospect
that this amount will be increased by the Ist of
July. Heargued that tho surplus-in Inc Treasury
should be thrown upon the market, and the effect
of such action would he to prevent speculation In
gold and lessen the margin between gold and pa
per. The only objection to this measure
seemed to bo that it placed a vast power
In the hands of the Secretary of the Treasury
It was a necessity in these extraordinary times
that be should bo clothed with vast powers. The
b!U, as proposed to bo amended, would enable him
to hold a rod over the speculators in New York
and elsewhere. He thought the hoarding of gold
was like a man hiding his cast off garments. b lie
thought we bad better leave the Secretary of the
Treasury free to enter the market In possession of
this largo amount of gold as against speculation at
any time when our bonds became depredated.
After further debate and opposition from HEN
DRICKS, Copperhead, of Indiana, and other Cop
perheads, the bill passed, ayes a», noca 8, and on
the receipt of the news in New York there was
great consternation among the gold gamblers, and
gold fell 5 per cent immediately.
Mr. JOHN LAW (Dcm„ Ind.) reported a bill

Giving to the Revolutionary pensioners each one

they arc entitle d nnder former acts of Conercaa..
Ur. FARNSW ORTH (Um, Hi.) wished io know
how many Revolutionary pensioners there wore.

oldest 106 years of age. It was not • probable that
these pendens would continue more than two
years. r ’ ■*■ v> • » >, •

Mr. STEVENS said he would take warning from
