If the 'Whole country had been canvassed
for a probable candidate for the honor just
conferred on Gen. Grant, when the war first
broke out, perhaps no single voice would
Jttvo then named the present recipient *BO
iar as the public knew, Gcn.Brown,or Smith,
Or Snooks, or Jones, stood just as near to the
i honor. A good many thought that Gen.
Scott was to be the great man of the war.
Of course,Jiobody, who .had read -history or
done ati ounce of thinking thought so. But
i?hOy or where the man would-be found who
sbottidgotinlo the nation’s eye and stand
approved, was of course a mystery which
time must unravel- As usual, the prominent
figure comes from a quarter where he is not
* looked for.
• But as the war is cot ended, Ills not best
tt'say too much yet Idols may 101 l and get
brokenly being lifted up too high. "What
can be said with safety is that Gen. Grant has
earned his way to his present position; and
the way In which he bos earned It gives good
hope of his keeping on, by* the good favor of
providence, to do other work, yot to be
done, and to stand approved still, when It is
finished. Gen. Grant owes nothing to ficti
tious circumstances. He has simply taken
his place and worked on, with unflinching
devotion to. the trust *fac has had
in hand. Earnestness, energy, and a
sort of bull-dog grit have been his capi
tal In trade. As to enthusiasm, orthe power
to awaken it in his army, he seems to pos
sess sot a particle. A man of common
appearance; of simple, familiar, though
somewhat sileut manners; with no immagi
sation that any body knows of, and .with no
taste or aptitude for display, he Is simply a
man of work. In the mutter of impressing
an army, and stirring its cnthusiism, Rose
crans excels him indefinitelyand even Mc-
Clellan beats him all hollow. But-Grant
secs a point, has the Idea of fit-rucaust'o an
end, and goe£ at U, and sticks to it. Of
course he wins.
(For. another thing, he has that first class
American trait of minding his own business!.
Be Is not turned aside, so far, by either am
bltion, Tanity, or clamor. No General has
been more severely criticised or condemned
nee the war begun. Yet, If he has ever
said a word In reply, the public does not
Know what it is. He has been accused ol
drunkenness, carelessness and want of ca
pacity. To all this he has said nothing. Nor
has he turned aside to tinker the political
kettle, even though it .leaked, only so it
didn’t leak in his way. It has always been
enough for him. to .take care of his Depart
ment, and manage his own. army. And
hence, while other departments have had
prirocEuboidinate officers, and all the depart
ments have had splendid soldiers, no other
head of a deportment has hod so uniformly a
first -class of men in command immediately
under and about him. This is not a matter
of mere chance. The spirit of the General is
Infused into his subordinates. The right
man selects other right men—Napoleon has
Napoleon’s Marshals.
The manner in which Grant has thus come
to his laurels gives ns good hope that he will
keep them. The man who won’t make a
speech, even it he is treated to a good din
ner; who has no itching for the Presidency,
that betrays itself under the blandishments
of heralds and sycophants; who suffers the
mosquitoes of -criticism to bite him without
wincing", and only looks grave and smokes
on, gives good assurance that he will keep
his balance and do work yet worthy of the
public expectation. It would be a pity,
should it x>rove that we had spoiled so good
a General with honors; and till we sec proofs
of such an effect we shall believe that the
laurels have been worthily and properly be
stowed. '

Next to the rebels wc know of no class
whose dilemmas are more numerous or de

2. If they try to pass for Dcmomts the
party won’t hare them.
8. Unless they can combine with the rebels,
neither can succeed, but —

H. "When the Union cause fails there will be
no country to rale.
7 t Before fighting they would seek a dis
union peace, but—
8. Before getting a disunion }>eace they
must fight the Unionists.
S. Peace to them means peace with those
who are fighting against the muon and war
with those who are fighting for it, but—
-10. They find it costs more “knocks” to
light the country’s friends, than it would to
subdue its enemies.
U, They believe in all the rights of man,
especially in Ids right to own men, bat—
-12. They oppose “Woman’s tights” par
ticularly the rights of a black woman to her
dustily and her children.
18. They favor the hugest liberty, to-wit:
the liberty of a State to secede in order to
promote slavery, but—
-14. They oppose insurrection and rebel
lion, especially the rebellion ol the Federal
government against the supremacy of the
slave States.
15. They sympathize with the conservative
efforts of Jefferson Davis to preserve the
“ Union us it was and the Constitution as it
is.” but—
-16. They believe all the acts which Abra
ham Lincoln has done, can' do, or ever may
do, to maintain the Union, are unconstitu
tional and revolutionary usurpations.
17. They would colonize all soldiers of
color, but—
18. They do not believe in colonizing the
Vallundighams who desert their colors.
19. They fear abolition least it may lead to
amalgamation, but—
r 20. They like'slavery because it compels
amalgamation.
’ 2L They believe that God has made the
negro their inferior, but—
-22. They fear abolition will make him their
superior.
23. They know McClellan to be opposed to
the war. or they would not nominate him,
bat—
24. They want him to carry on the war,
because he is opposed to its being carried on.
25. They pretend to believe that McClellan
made war on the rebels, but—
-26. They republish his official report as a
campaign document, to show how success-
Hilly lie made war on the Administration.
27. To require rebels to swear to support
the Constitution and laws, before voting, is
to infringe the right of suffrage, bat—
-28. To prevent volunteers who are fighting
for the Union Horn voting, is to sustain the

29., They deny that the civilization of the
North is superior to that of the South, but—
SO. This involves the admission either that
bad as arc the rebels, the Copperheads are no
better, or else that the Copperheads enjoy no
share of Northern civilization.
SL The above facts tend to show that this
is a contest notbetwecu States, communities,
or institutions, but between all the depravity
of the human heart, on the one side, and

A REMARK ABLE EE riEO.
We print elsewhere an interesting letter
from our special correspondent relative to
the feelings of the Southern people. He ac
companied Gen. Sherman's expedition, and
thereby camejn direct communication with
people who lor the first time in the war had
seen a Union army. The whole letter, as
*ell as the one descriptive of the expedition,
will be found of great Interest. There Is one
point brought out in our correspondent's
tetter which deserves especial allusion. He
a CO W of a letter written by Mr.
S* ne ls° n ’ °i Mis6 ksippl—brother of Gen.
Singleton, of this Slate—-and a member ol
the rebel Congress. The writer lets out the
TTluilc plot now being nmmged between
Copperheads and tbc rebels. He says the
Confederates most gain military sncccases
tbla spring, so that Abraham Lincoln may be
defeated at the polls, and adds he -would hall
such an event with delight, for in the defeat
of the Republican party alone consists peace.
What that peace will be, every one knows.
The treaty between the Copperheads and
rebels would acknowledge the independence
of the latter. We Invite the otlentioh of
loyal men, and of such Democrats as have
not become hopelessly disloyal, to this state
of things. It is worth*their serious consid

Vallandigham’a sympathy with traitors
while sojourning in Dixie is being ventilated
by witnesses who were with him. Lieut
CoL Fremantle, of the Coldstream Guards, a
British officer, has published a book entitled
‘“Three Months in the Southern States,”
with a portrait of Jeffi Davis. His book has
been published In this country. Speaking of
ibis visit to Shelhyville, Col. Fremantle thus
describes VallandUrham’s fraternizing with
; Folk and Hardee:
i “ When I arrived, I found thnt Gen. Hardee
• was In company with Gen. Polk and Bishop
Elholt, of Georgia, and also with Mr. Val
landigham. The latter (called the Apostle of
; Liberty) is a good-looking man, anparentlv
j not much ofer forty, and laid been turned
ont of the North three days before, Rose
i crans hod wished to turn him over to Bra**"'
• by flog of truce, but as the latter declined to
receive him in that way, he was, as Gen. Har
dee expressed it. ‘dumped down* inthesen
• tral ground between the two Uncs, and left
them. He then received hospitality from the
Confederates, in the capacity of a destitute
■ stranger. They do not in any way receive
j himofilclalty, and it does not suit the policy
of either party to he identified with one an
. other. lie is now living at a private house
in Shelhyville, and had come over for thednv
‘with Gen. Polk, on a visit to Hardee.- lie
told the Generals that If Grant was severely
1 beaten in Mississippi by J olmston, he did not
think the vrar could be continued on Its pres
ent grand scale.”
On arrrivlng at TTilmington, North Caroli
na, a short time afterward, Cob Fremantle
again fell in with the “ distinguished exile.”
He says:
. ‘‘Major Norris went to call uponVallan
; digham, whom lie had escorted to Wilmin*-
ton as a sort of semi-prisoner, some days aw.
Ma. Vallandigbam was in bed. He told Major
Norris that he intended to ran the blockade
that evening for Bermuda, whence he should
find his way to the Clifton Hotel, Canada,
where he intended to publish a newspaper
and agitate Ohio across the frontier. Major
Norris found him much elated by the news
: of his having been nomiated for the Govern
orship of Ohio, and he declared If he he was
duly elected his State could dictate peace.
through the country together to
• n ilmlngtoo, these two used to converse
much on politics. Major Norris once said to
him; * Now, from what yon have seen and
heard in your journey through the South,
yon must know that a reconstruction of the
old union, under any circumstances, is ut
terly Impossible.’ Vallandigham renlied:
. til, all lean say is, I hope, and*at all
, events I know, that my scheme of a suspen
sion ol hostilities Is the onlv one which has
: any prospect ol* success.’ ”
The First Victory of the Fenians.
1 The London Time* of the 34th ult., com
; meeting upon the disturbance, says:
The Fenian Brotherhood- have gained
first victory on the sacred soil of Ireland.
! From all the Northern States of America the
eyes of the expectant Irish may now be turn
ed to the spot where, amid the din of con
flict and the shouts of victory, the green flaf
has «t last been unfurled. The Jong-promised
i invasion has come off The wrath of mil
lions, so longnnrscd and so successfully kept
hot, has at last blazed forth. Those Irish
who, whether in Ireland, or England, or
America, most always have something to
charge with all that goes wrong with them,
; may at last welcome the arrival ofthedav
; when they may appear as invaders and con
querors in the old cities of the Celt It has
long been promised them that this should be,
.Banded brotherhoods have been tenderly
treated and confidentially bid to hope, and
they have kept themselves readv for the lou"--
watched opportunity ofvengeance. Further
, attempt at concealment is vain, and it must
nowipe announced with horror and dismay,
that alter a terrible and enduring conflict the
Fenian Brotherhood have made themselves
masters ol one of the principal public build
; inns of the city of Dublin.
TFfccther the invaders came direct from
America we cannot tell, for although it was
remarked that the Federal American uniform
was worn among them, thnt may possibly be
accounted for by engagements entered Into
on Uiis side the Atlantic. Howeverthat mav
be, whether the uniform was a mark of pru
dent desertion and an ignominious flight, or
of honorable discharge combined with an
equally honorable poverty, or whether the
smart coal was but bravtay bought with a
bounty to be earned hereafter, there it was.
According to all the fitness of things, The
O’Doucghne ought to have been raised upon
the shoulders ot the Fenians and proclaimed
as O the First, or he should at have been
carried in triumph to the castle, and Installed
there to await the arrival of further orders
from New Tork. Strange, however, to sav,
the aflair took altogether another turn. Tire
Fenians’ onslaught was as fierce as that of
the Fawmorrics. The O’Donoghne was
driven from his seat, the Fenim Brotherhood
stormed the platform, the chairman and com
mittee fled, routed by the Fenians; fifteen
minutes of desiderate battle cleared the great
O’e and all their machinery for protests out
of the Rotunda, and at the end of this time
the green flag woe waved overa perfectly
harm onions assembly.
Photographic Evidence in an Ejection
Case.
A curious election ease was decided the
other day In the House—that of Sleeper vs
Bice, from Boston. The whole case lamed
on cn alleged miscount of sixty votes, in one
of the wards, which at first gave the majori
ty to Sleejvcr. The miscount being discov
ered on the tally-sheet on which tbe account
had been kept, the return was corrected, and
the certificate awarded to Mr. Bice.
When Mr. Sleeper gave notice of contest,.
Mr. Rice had a photograph made of the oris-*
iual tally sheet, and this photograph was sub
mitted in evidence to the Committee. The
testimony of tbe sen was dirset and conclu
sive. The clerk had made his figure 7 verv
much like Ids X. In counting the votes for
Rice he had reached 573. Five more were
read, the figure 9 was noted over the last
footing 573, and it was carried ont 518. Pal
pably the opening stroke which alone distin
guished the 7 from 2 had been mistaken for
the final stroke ol the 5 on which it joined.
The case was perfectly clear, and all that was
wanted was to prove that the photograph
was taken from the genuine, unchanged tally
sheet. This was easily done, and Mr. Rice
was admitted to Ids seat by on unanimous
vote.
The photograph was lithographed by the
Government printer, :tnd accurate fac similes
of the tolly-sheet were thus distributed
among the members. They plead tbe cose
themselves; and famished at once a novel
and a convenient wav of disposing of an elec
tion contest.
The New York Herald on Poor Pierce.
The X. T. Herald says: Poor Pierce and the
spurious peace democracy hart been fairly
skinned in the New Hampshire elections. As
we have it, poor Pierce was the recognized
leader and expounder of his miserable faction
in this late contest, and with.the understand
ing that, in securing a Democratic Legisla
ture, his reward would be a seat in the Uni
ted States Senate. Poor Pierce, as a demo
cratic cx-President, was regarded by his stu
pid followers as a very great men; bnt the
people of his State have pronounced him an
impostor. He retires from their freezing re
buke under a cloud of disgrace. He has com
pleted tbe work of demolishing the Northern
rump of the old, worn out, ana obsolete dem- !
ocratlc party.

TUB SETTING OUT OF-TUK EXPEDITION,
The expedition under the command of Gen.
Shennau set out ? from Vicksburg. ou Feb. 3d
jt in two columns, one under the command of
I Gen. Hnrlbut, proceeding by the old Jackson
j. road and crossing the Big Black by a pontoon
bridge at Messenger's Feny; the other un
der command of Gen. McPherson, crossing
■ the river at the railroad bridge. In order to
; facilitate the progress of the army, all un-
necessary baggage was’ left behind, the sol
diers taking twenty days’ rations. The
: weather was beautiful and the roads' in ex
cellent condition, and everything bid fair for
a speedy and successful march. What made
.It much more auspicious than such expedi
tions usually are, wjs the fact that the enemy
‘ knew* Utile or nothing in regard to our num
bers and intentions. Infect the expedition was
a complete surprise to them, and throughout
the march they seemed completelynonplassed
and at a loss what to do. The country from
Vicksburg to the Big Black is completely
stripped of everything that can afford sus
tenance to man or beast, and such is the case
only in a less marked degree as far os Jack
sou.
SKXBMISIIINO WITH THE EKEMT.
I After crossing the Big Black both columns
i had skirmishing with the enemy’s cavalrv at
; intervals until we arrived at Jackson. The
! cavalry belonged to S, D. Lee and Ferguson’s
; commands. These skirmishes, though In
some eases severe, caused our forces but litr
I tie delay as they speedily drove the enemy
j back. In this day’s skirmishes the enemy ac
} knowledge a loss of ten killed and thirty or
'• forty wounded. Among the former was Ma
jor Bidden. This loss was at least, twice as
; great as bur own. The Confederates had
four pieces of artillery, and there is no donbt
’ that it was their intention to make a stand at
the fortifications of Jackson. These
fortifications consist of earthworks and
i rifle-pits and would have afforded
considerable protection against an nmiiin;
party, A force of cavalry was sent out by
another route which ran parallel to the main
road, and succeeded In flanking them, when
they retreated in great haste. Onr cavalry
captured one of their guns, a rilled 10-ponnd
' er, with caisson, horses, &c., and several
prisoners. The flight of the enemy through
. the town and across Pearl river was a perfect
euaddte. So great was their haste that they 1
had no time to destroy the fine pontoon
bridge which they had erected across Pearl
. river, except to cut the ropes, and it was
used the next day by our troops in crossing.
After our army had crossed and was ou the
way to Brandon, the bridge was destroyed
by the Confederates to cut off onr retreat
We had no desire to retreat till our mission
was accomplished. Jackson is a eorrv
looking place, all the public build
ings having been destroyed, except
the Stale House and City Hall. Besides the
public buildings nearly all the stores and
many private dwellings have been burned.
Most of it was done during the occupation
of the city by our forces one year ago.
to dbaxdon,
Our march from Jackson to Brandon was
mostly free from skirmishing, the enemy
having become thoroughly demoralized and
chiefly c ccupied in making good their escape.
TN c found plenty of meat and corn on the
route, which the soldiers were not slow to
avail themselves of to lengthen on" the sup
plies which were brought with us. It was
the expectation, when the expedition started
• out, that they would draw most of their sup
plies and all the forage for horses aud mules
from the country. There was very little dif
ficulty in finding enough for our purpose,
oven In the most barren part of the country
Which we passed through. There was
nothing left, however, after our passage,
and in many instances the people must
suffer for the want ol food. The" state
ments that the Confederates would suffer
from starvation are without foundation.
There k is plenty of corn and meat in the
country, but very little else; yet this will
serve to sustain iife, and people can fight,
living on this alone, if they can get nothing
else. They appear to suffer more from want
of proper clothing than anything else.
The country from Jackson to Brandon is
very good, and there are many fine planta
tions. We passed through the latter place
; on the Bth nit. It is a pleasant village, and
the county scat of Rankin countv. This
a voting population of more than
1200, and gave 110 majority against secession
when the State went out of the Union. Don.
J. J. Thornton, a resident of thjg town, was
the only member of the State Legislature that
voted against secession when the final vote
Was taken. His drug store was plundered
by onr troops. Quite a large quantity of
meal was found at this place, which was
seized for the use of the army. A large num
ber of private dwellings were burned here as
well as at other places on the route, but
they were in nearly every case deserted
houses and their owners in the rebel armv.
The burning was mostly done by stragglers,
and there were strict orders issued against it
by the commanding Generals. The railroad
had been put in good repair by the rebels
from Meridian to Jackson, and from the lat
ter place through Canton North to Grenada.
It was by this road that the Confederates at
Meridian and Mobile got most of their sup
plies. The trains ran until the day before we
arrived. Wc destroyed the road at differ
ent places all the way through to Meridian.
niLLs'BOKO.
The march from Brandon through Morcton
to Hillsboro was devoid of interest except an
occasional skirmish with th: enemv’s cavalry
in which they invariably got the worst of it.
This is In part owing to the Jact that our cav
alry always dismount In skirmishing with the
enemy in the woods, which gh\s them the
advantage ot getting under cover and movlag
abent with greater facility. The country
through which we passed is sandy and barren,
and the timber wholly pine. The Inhabitants
were scattered and belong to the poorer class,
yet wefound no difficulty In finding meat and
cornfor forage. BiUsboro is a scattered town
of twenty houses and the county seat of Scott
’ county. Beyond Hillsboro towards Decatnr
wc found the bridges across the creeks de
stroyed and trees felled across the road.
These impediments caused some delay but a
pioneer corps was organized and the contra
bands set at work, who soon put things to
rights. 41
The largest streams we passed were the big
and little Chunky. At the Big Chunky we
had quite a skirmish with tbe enemv, in
which several of their number were killed
and wounded; our loss was trifling. A force
was sent to Chunk y station, twelve miles
south of our route, to destroy the railroad.
They had quite a severe skirmish with the
enemy, but succeeded in accomplishing their
object. This force, moving In that direction,
led the rebel General Polk to think that our
army had started for mobile, and caused him
to send a portion of his torce at Meridian in
that direction, and led to the subsequent
evacuation of that post.
We omitted to state that our train was at
tacked by about forty rebel cavalrv while pas
singthrougb Decatur, on tbe evening of the
X2th ult. several of the mules were killed
or disabled, but none of the wagons were
captured, and tbe rebs were-speedily driven
back.
AT MERIDIAN.
On the 12th and 13th we passed several
swamps where a small force might have de
tained ns a longtime, and perhaps elTecluallv
kept ns back, but it was evidently no part of
the rebel programme to fight; they were all
too busy in making good their escape. In
fact what few Confederates we saw appeared
to be completely demoralized. On the eve
ning of the lufh onr advance encamped with
in ten miles of Meridian. As Polk was known
to have quite a large force our boys were
In holies of having a fight. On this evening
onr cavalry had a skirmish with the Confed
erate covaljT, which resulted in the death of
half a dozen of the latter without any loss to
us. On the morning of the 14th our forces
were up and moving bright and carlv. After
proceeding within foor miles of Meridian we
found a bridge burned across a small creek
which caused a delay of two or three hour*
After passing the creek a short distance we
found a sort of breastwork and cotton bales
piled up for artillery, as though the Confede
rates designed to moke a stand. It was an
admirable place for the purpose; but their
hearts evidently foiled them, and we found
their works deserted. About two miles from
the town we passed the winter quarters of
the Confederate troops.. They appeared to be
quite comfortable, and admirably located.
Soon after passing the camps onr cavalrv, un
der Col. ulnslow, encountered the* rear
guard of the enemy; but the gallant Colonel
mode short work of them, and drove tbem
through the town towards Demopolis, at a
double-quick. Immediately following the
cavalry came the 3d division of the ICthAjmv
Corps, with flags flying and bands playing
national airs, it must have been a novel sight
to uliat few inhabitants were left. They bad
not witnessed anything of the kind before
since the fall of Sumter. There were no
manifestations of joy exhibited by the in
habitants ot Meridian, nor indeed were there
at any place on the route. The people looked
upon it very much as they would on a flood
or conflagration—as something which could
not be helped and could only be made the
best oC
The march from Vicksburg to Meridian
was accomplished in eleven days. The dis
tance is not far from one hundred and filly
miles. We were now in thevery heart of the
enemy's country, with no possibility of com
munication with any point and supplies
enough to last ns but a very few days. Where
was toe boasted Southern Confederacy, that
they did not attack and annihilate onr little
army. Nothing in the whole war has shown
the rebel weakness, tbc inside rot
tenness of the Confederacy as plainly
as this expedition. Polk has been
censored by the Southerners fornot attacking
Sherman; but if he had, ho would most assu
redly have been beaten. Polk had in the ag
gregate from fourteen to fifteen thousand
men. Klnc thousand infantrv under the com
mand of Gens. Loring cnd*French, and five
thousand cavalry under the command of 8.
D. Lee, Wirt Adams and Ferguson. In an
advantageous position this force, If concen
trated, might perhaps have made a stand and
caused ns considerable dclav, but the result
could jiot but have been ‘disastrous to the
rebels. The bragadocio spirit, and even the
disposition to flght/has nearly gone out of
the Confederates. >ciy many of them are
at !t 18 ol no .*« to fight longer,
and that they can get just as good terms
now as ever. They think the war U
kept tip merely for the leaders, and
tfiat is a poor cause to flghi for.
dbsobiptioh op mkbidiak.
Meridian is a nctv town, huilt in the pine
woods, and derives its only importance from
its railroad connections. The Mobile and Ohio
Ik R. intersects the Southern. These roads not
only afforded the Confederates means of com*
munication, bat supplies for' Mobile and
other points were obtained over these roads..
Their importance to the Confederates is al
most incalculable. One great object of the
expedition tvas the destruction •of thosc
roads, and it is needless to say that it was
successfully accomplished. The rails wore
first torn up and then the ties were dog up
and piled together. Afterwards the rails
-were placed across the ties and fire set to
them. The rolls becoming-heated, bent
down at each end, thus becoming totally un
fit for use. This process v/as carried bn
for at least a dozen miles in each
direction from Meridian, besides at other
places along the route.' The scarcity of iron
lathe Confederacy makes the loss doublysc
vere to the rebels. It will be a long time be
fore the roada arc repaij-cd again If it is ever
done by the Confederates. A force was sent
South as far as Enterprise where they bad a
slight skirmish with the enemy. Also one as
far North as Marion, whore they had another
skirmish. Our cavalry, was saved a great'
deal of skirmishing by tbc -use of artillery. A
few - shells sent among the robs judiciously
would invariably send them skedaddling pell
mcll. The booming of our cannon was al-.
ways ibc signal for them to start. It seems,
that the Confederates thought they were per
fectly. secure in Meridian,' as the officers
were . building lor themselves fine
residences, Gen. Polk,' the 1 ghting bishop,
bed cne partly finished. Our boys finished
it for him as well ns those belonging to the
other officers. There was quite an extensive
■ arsenal in tbc place where old puns and pis
tols were altered so as to bo good as new.
Also bayonets were altered to what they
think a superior pattern, but our boys did
not like their appearance as .well as our own. ,
They were broader and more flat than ours.
The arsenal was destroyed, together with
the railroad buildings, and several buildings
containing commissary stares. The confed
erates baa removed most ol their stores.
Dad Gen. W. S. Smith’s cavalry expedition
arrived as was intended, no doubt much of
their stores would have been de
stroyed, During our stay at Me
ridian some loroging parties were
attacked by the enemy’s cavalry, and a* few
of our boys were wounded, bat none killed.
To destroy wbat was of use to the enemy in
and around Meridian, required five days. It
is needless to say that the destruction was
thoroughly accomplished, and that It will be
a long time before the rebels will wish to see
the Union army in that vicinity again.
FOR ROME.
Having accomplished the object of the cx
< pedition, and our nrevisions running low,
* the expedition started back on the 20th nIL
The route chosen was through Canton, to the
northward of the one going out,' This'was
done, party, that supplies might be obtained,
and partly for the reason that there was Con
federate property to be destroyed. On the
: return march, the contrabands began
to pour In upon ns by hundreds. Old
men and young men, women and children, of
all ages, some on foot, some on horseback,
and some in wagons drawn by oxen. It was
• a motley sight. Officers were appointed over
them, who sought to keep them together,
but thjs was next to impossible. Men might
1 he seen who had started with a large family
and lost them every one. They were un
doubtedly somewhere with the train and
cared for as well as possible.
THE CONTRABANDS FORAGING.
One thing the darkies showed themselves
tnlly susceptible of—the art of foraging. Not
, a chicken or a pig showed Its luckless head,
but, in the words of the darkies themselves,
it was a goner. Nothing so nettled the seces
sionists as to have things taken from them
by the negroes. If our soldiers took what
they wanted to eat, they seldom uttered a
word, but took It ns a matter of course; but
let a contraband capture anything, and they
complained bitterly.
TO CANTON.
Onr march to Canton was devoid of Inter
est. The country is sandy and the soil poor
until we approach Pearl River. This we
crossed on a pontoon bridge. Afterwards
;the country becomes better, and we passed
many fine plantations. Wc fonnd considera
ble cotton at different places on the route,
all of which was burned. One of onr men
who had straggled from his command, was
fonnd tied to a tree and shot. He was not
: dcad when found, and was taken along with
ns, but the poor fellow could hardly recover.
During the march we lost several men by
straggling, but for the distance marched the
number of stragglers was remarkably small.
As u general thing onr soldiers stood the
march remarkably well. Enough horses
and mules were captured so that those
who were sick and tired ont could ride.
Canton is a fine village and contains many
splendid residences, 'll is really the prettiest
place in the State. It is situated about one
hundred miles from Meridian, und seventy
from'Vlcksbnrg. Fifteen locomotives were
captured near ibis place. Their loss will be
great to the rebels as they are very ranch
troubled to obtain rolling stock. Their cars
and engines are nearly worn out, and their
means for replacing them are very limited.
The railroad was destroyed at this place for
a long distance. A large quantity of meal
was obtained at tbls place, which came very
opportunely for our soldiers, for their hard
tack had nearly given out From Canton the
larger part of the train and the contrabands
were sent to Vicksbnrg In advance of the
main army. The second night ont from Can
ton it rained and continued to do so the
greater part of the next day. This was
the first rain of anv account that
we had experienced on the expedition. This
wos enough to show ns how Impossible it
would have been for the expedition to have
succeeded had the weather been rainy instead
of dry and pleasant. It was so muddy that
the troin was all day going the distance of
eight miles, and worked very hard at that,
it wus enough to make one’s heart bleed to
sec the poor contrabands, shivering with the
cold, children crying, and women moaning
piteously, all endeavoring to the best of
their ability to keep up with tbc train. Their
troubles were of short duration, for the
weather soon cleared up, and they were able
to keep up with the train quite comfortably.
The rest of onr march to Vicksbnrg was ac
complished without any event worthy of no
tice, Wc arrived on the 2d lost., having
been absent from that place almost a month.
THE RESULT OF THE EXPEDITION.
The Confederates will consider this expedi
tion os the boldest move of the war. " for
an army no larger than that which accompa
nied Sherman to advance into the very heart
of the Confederacy without any communica
tion for nearly a month,'and that too where
the rebelsbad a perfect railroad communica
tion, was truly a bold move. It shows more
plainly than anything else that has transpired
the real weakness of the Confederacy. Had
they the troops to spare from any point, or
could they have been raised in any manner,
he would not have been allowed to return
without serious opposition. It is on eye
opener to the people of Mississippi, and can
hardly but convince them that it Is useless to
protract the War lonircr, Kearlv all with
whom wo conversed, confessed as much. Re
garded in this light the expedition has done
a great deal of good.
THE DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY.
> early one hundred miles of railroad was
destroyed, and that in such a manner that it
will have to he entirely rebuilt with new iron,
no very easy job * hen we consider the scarc
ity of that article at the South, and the in
creasing scarcity of labor. These railroads
were ot nntold value to the South as a means
of communication with different parts of the
Confederacy, and for the transmission of sup
plies. Besides the railroads and railroad build
lugs, other buildings and stores, horses and
mules captured to the number of two or
three thousand, and contrabands to the num
ber of live thousand will swell the amount of
loss to the Confederates to nearly twenty
millions of dollars. The country through
wijlch we passed was obliged to be stripped
of nearly everything eatable to support onr
army. As the people must seek sustenance
elsewhere, it is really taking supplies a way
from the Confederates. There waa con
siderable destruction of private property,
which may hardly be considered justifiable;
yet the houses destroyed were almost Inva
riably deserted, and their owners, in all
probability, In the Confederate array. Quite
a quantity of cotton was also destroyed.
This was done with little or no additional
expense to onr Government, as the army
drew most of Its supplies from the country.
the toss.
The loss on onr side is trifling. Probably
one hundred will cover the killed, wounded
and prisoners. The loss of the enemy was
much greater in killed and wounded, and we
captured more than two hundred prisoners
and deserters—among them, several officers.
Our soldiers endured the long march remark
ably well, and there were verv few cases of
sickness.
THE CONTRABANDS.
. The five thousand contrabands is taking
, net so much from the productive
interest of the countiy, and conse
quently from the Confederates, Nearly all
the able-bodied ones will enter the army.
Inlactwewcre informed that one thousand
have already done so. The remainder will
be sent to the contraband camp and employed
to work on the plantations as occasion may
require.
THE WEATHER.
The westher, with one or two slight ex
ceptions, was delightful throughout the trip.
Had this not been the case, tho expedition
would have been greatly delayed, as the roads
in some parte of the route would have been
nearly or quite impassable. The nights were
cool and frosty, and sometimes the ice froze
quite thick.
THE SUCCESS OP THE EXPEDITION.
The expedition may bo considered a suc
cess as all was accomplished that was
designed or in onr power to accomplish.
But for the unaccountable non-arrival of
Gen. TV. S. Smith's cavalry expedition from
Memphis, perhaps more of the confederate
commissary stores and raoreprisonere might
have been captured. Some may be disap
pointed because Sherman did not follow up
the enemy to Mobile, but little considera
tion by oneacquaintdwiththefactsin the case
and the difiicuUics to be overcome will con
vince him that such a thing was altogether
impracticable. Mobile can be attacked with
more hope of success in another direc
tion. • k-

Satubdat Evzxistg, March 12.—The market for the
past week has presented few features of change, bo*
’ jond the regular diminution of the supply,for which
we naturally look at this period of the year. The re*
cclpta for the current week of lire and dressed Hogs
amount to 11,267 bead, showing a decline of l,i&); but
the receipts of lire and drowsed hogs for tho corres
ponding week of last year were 59,611 head or 10,407
head over the present week. The supply of the past
and several previous weeks has almost entirely con*
elated ofJJghfhogs, which, In the absence of better
Qualities, shippers have been compelled to purchase.
It has, however, turned ontt v at the supply to our
Eastern markets, from all sources, has consisted
mainly of the same class of stock, and we consequent*
ly make during the week. In Kew York and other
markets, a depression and decline In prices upon all
excepting prime qualities of SCQSOc, with a heavy
sale. This depression In the Eastern market has been
(brther stimulated by the heavy receipts of distillery*
fed hogs, which, owing to the high prices given,
have been sent in from Pennsylvania, Ohio
and Illinois at least a month earlier than
1 than usual. With the small receipts of this market I
1 we have not experienced any corresponding depress* I
: on or decline: If buyers have not been as numerous I
on one day, (he succeeding one has fully made up for
the deficiency, and so the receipts have been cleared
out, generally to the satisfaction of all concerned.
The demand for really choice qualities has steadily
continued considerably In excess of the supply, for
the best of all reasons, namely that there are so few
of them to he had. Prime qualities of corn-fed fatted
hogs' weighing from 510 to 2no as, are worth to-day
from t7.50Q7.69 7? 100 ss, and lighter hogs, if fat
from 2uo ns and upwards arc in largo demand, and at
high prices; but poor bogs If In larger supply than at
present can only be sold' at low prices. There has
been a very trilling demand for stock hogs, tho season
not having advanced sufficiently lor any active opera*
Uons, besides which, feeders anticipate that In a few
weeks this class of stock will he selling atmnchlower
rates. There has baen a fair amount of activity in the
yards to-day. The entered sales amount
to 1,510 togs ’ at $5X0®7.80 ' but principally
at $6.55QTX3 ? 100 ns. There has been a marked
decline in the demand for light and inferior stock.
Shippers ctnerally are more cautions,fearing from
tbo latest advices, Indicating no demand except for
prime qualities, that prices will sustain a further dc*
Cline; we consequently note that several purchases
have been made ot Inferior Hogs fully 25c lower n<«n
the previous quotation of the market, but on better
grades there is‘no decline either in the activity or
firmness of the market, -

IV ith regard to the Pork Packing Itis needle® to re
mark that the Blight falling off la the number packed
Is due solely to the shortness of the crop, and also to
thereat scarcity cfllo~B in the eastern markets, In
consequence of which prices were run clear beyond the
limits of packers, and immense droves .were shipped to
New York, Boston, Philadelphia and- other points to :
cupplj butchers and puckers them. By reference to :

A REVIEW OF THE CHICAGO POES AND
REEF PACKING FOE 1863-84.
We arc now enabled to lay before yon a statement
■ of our packing of beef and pork for tbc season just
' closed. Since the Ist of November (at which tin ewa
. commenced onr tabular record of current prices), the
pecking of beef bad been so frilling and inotronaac
' vions in the various qualities so unimportant, wo have
not thought it necessary to embody In the tables either
the prices of cattle or the weekly quotations of the
packed product. It may be as well to state, however,
that owing to the very high prices of cattle, there will
probably Be no spring packing; that the stock of mess
and extra mc.'B beef has been well nigh exhausted;
that the market baa advan< cd to 817.50 tor the former,
and £22.20 for the latter; and the beef haw* have been
all bsoght np, principally for Cincinnati, at closing
rates orßl7^-o^lßX9brl. Tallow closing linn at lie.
The falling off In the packing of Fork through the
Slates the past season has been shared la a certain
degree by Chicago, bat the deficiency Is comparative
ly -o Mnall that we may feel Justly proud of the knowl
edge that wo bnvu maintained the position we hist
year attained of being tbc largest ant most impor
tant pocking point In the country. Oar faculties keen
pace with our anticipated progress. Several exten
sive und commodious structures have been newly
erected for the business, old ones bare hcen torn
down and remodelled, and we may now boast of hav
ing the moat perfect and convenient pork houses In
the world. Onr manufacture has vastly improved.
Backers are realizing-the iact that It Is as easy to
handle their meat well as badly, and ere long we may
hope to sec the several brands uniformly equal to the
bm !n any other Western city.
Tbc interests of the packing points In the Interior
and along the Mississippi are closely Idcoilflid with
onr own. wc have this season furnished them a
ready market for nil they wished to dispose of. Thera
Is but little doubt that the country points were never
previously so thoroughly cleared out of stock at t >!s
time of the year as at present. The largo sales made
here the past season of prodnets packed In distant

[From the Cincinnati Price Current, March 10.1
Owing to causes which It Is not necessary to specify,
we have not been able to give the packers’ reports of
the number of hogs packed in tills city until now
and even now, owing to the short time before we put
our paper to press, when we obtained the reports
from three houses, we are unable to giro more than
the number packed and the average weight and yield
of lard. "Wo will give a lull report, showing the aver
age prices, 4c, In our next. Tbcrctums showthat
the whole number packed was £57,010, the average
Weight IS9 As., and the average yield of lard V hog
$)l-8&s. Fully one-fourth of the houses could not
furnish the exact yield of lard, hut all excepting two
inmlshed the average weight of the bogs. On the 6th
of January we published the last weekly report of re
ceipts, when the number was 812,009. The snow
storm bad then stopped the receipts, and they were
light afterwards.

NEW YORK DRYGOODS MARKET.
tFrom the N. T. Independent, March 10.]
Trade is dull for the season. Unusual caution Is
exhibited by buyers, who limit their purchases to Im
mediate wants, expecting lower prices from a fall In
gold, which is yet to come. Price*, however, have
net materially given wav. Prints appear heavy la
price, at a train reduction. Less Is also doing in
brown and hleachedshinlngsandshectlnss. Jobbers
do not pay asking prices readily. Drills are only
wanted tor the army. Denims, ticks, and stripes are
alike deli, bn tare steady in price, stocks being light,
Delaines are In good demand, and sell more readily
than any other class cf goodie The better styles are
scarce,and prices Arm. Fancy casalmeres are qul»t
except for some leading and favorite styles, which are
having a run an* are sold as fast aether arrive. Plaids
and checks are Inactive. Silk mixtures are in scanty
supply. Satinets are In fair demand. Imported f.t.
hrics are not very active at private sale, ana the chief
business of tbe season will be at auction.. British
dress goods arc not so active as last week, though de*
elrablcstyles are wanted. French goods are'to bo
offered largely at auction, and little induing at nrtvata
sales. Ribbons are In fair demand. There Is a "ooil
Inquiry for German doeskins and broadcloths, at*low
prices. British meltons are favorites.aswell asScotch
tweeds. The importations we very heavy. The im

short and Short Boneless. A conquerable number of
Long Cut Hams were cored and-hipped from hers
. through the season, and we have also drawn largely
for these on Milwaukee, Keokuk. Galena and other
small points.
Mess pork (the quantity packed of which, also of
prime mtsti will bo found in their appropriate col
; umns), has been comparatively neglected and isprin
clpaliy on hand. Prime mess on the contrary has been
in constant demanu, both from the Government and
Individual shippers and the stock has been almost
all cleared off. Ptlme pork and rump pork were bat
Utile made. Bulk meats have met a ready market ami
are m very limltrd stock. Lard has met a smaller
coiitniiipuvo demand than any - other product
through the season, and most of what was sold has
been stored on speculation. • The falling off in yield
Is only about SjfDs ?hog, compared with lost sea
son. The falling off In the weight of hogs, as com
pared with last year, Is 29 ttsV bog, or about 13 per
cent.
: -tollowlcgthc precedent of the last two years, wo
have thongnt It better to embody In a table the rating
. price of each product from week to week rather than
review at length the ffaciQatloas of the market
through iho season. - Hznhy Mxlwasd & Co.
