THE NEWS.
Gold is still in trouble,. and yesterday’s
close saw it nearly two cents weaker than on
tin; day previous. The reason why,'a New
Torli dispatch discloses; Secretary Chase sold
t ; > i mporters yesterday under market rates,
iKarly forty thousand dollars in coin, virta
:nJ; throwing that amount into competition
with the gold gamblers. To-day he will sell
even a larger sum, and when ha-comcs, as he
w ill shortly do, to he the chief source of sup

be all up with gold speculation. So mote

his vehicle conld cany him, and the ilea in

Confederacy, forlorn indeed when snuhhed
by such an out-of-dhows realm as that of
Maximilian. Perhaps the -rush of eeccsh for
znular honors in the new court,has overdone
the thing.

A private dispatch is elsewhere given from
Hon. J. F. Farnsworth, of the Congressional
party of escort to the remains of the lament
ed Lovcjoy, now on their way to a last rcst
lrg place at his Illinois home. Itls dated at
Albany, yesterday, and announces that the
party will arrive here and leave this city on
Thursday, the funeral to take place at 10 a.
m. on Friday, at Princeton. Bureau county.
Our correspondent with the Bed Hirer ex
pedition forwards to us from Alexandria,
Louisiana, further accounts of the progress
of that important movement, as wdl os a
general report of the situation in General
Banks’ Department.
In the haste of preparation, an inadvertence
that many of our readers doubtless corrected
«t first glance, occurred in our sketch of Mr.
Lovcjoy’s life, in our last Issue. Hr. Love
jor was at the time of his death in the seventh
year of his Congressional career, the present
being the first session of his fourth term, ke
having been first elected in 1850.
In the inside of thla'issne wc give the. text
of Gen. Bosecron’s into order suppressing
the Metropolitan Jleeord.
We print elsewhere Lient Gen. Grant’s
official report of the battle of Inka. Al
though this battle was fought on the XCth of
September, 1862, and the official report was
made on the S2d of the following month, its
age should not prevent it being read care
fully. It has never before been published,'
and contains an interesting correspondence
between Generals Grant, Hosecrans and Ord,
showing the exact part each acted in secur
ing the victory. It is a clear, concise, busi
ness-like document, and the whole story is
told in a soldier-like style. The reader will
specially observe this statement:
"Uwas a part of Gen. Hamilton’s command
That did the fighting, directed entirely by that cool
nnd deserving officer. I commend him to the Pres
ident for acknowledgment ot his services.”
And it was the same “ cool and deserving**
Gen. Hamilton that Gen. McClellan previ
ously snubbed and drove out of the Army of
the Potomac. Now that McClellan and. his
fellow Generals of the Copperhead persua
sion are ont of the way, Gen. Hamilton should
be allowed to go back again. The country
needs Just such officers as McClellan would
■condemn and condemns such, officers as ho
commends.

IS THERE CIVIL WAS IX
ILmOAS?
The DlKtnrbaiiecs in Coles and Edgar
Counties*
The tools of treason in Illinois would be best
pleased by the exaggeration of the evil deeds
they have accomplished, to the end of marring
the loial fume of our State, and encouraging
the rebels in the sinking Confederacy by ex
citing talcs oi what is being done in their bc-
Lulf by these Northern allies. But so small
:: proportion do these scattered executes ol
Unitors bear to the flood-tide of Loyal sent!-
T'.-nt in the North, that not cvcn the hlind-
• ft follower of Jeff Davis in Dixie can be
long deceived. Tell him Illinois hasJUUd her
oU>* vuderevery call hy volunteering, and It
wxll be In vain to add that certain fdlorts of
the baser sort have temporarily disturbed
liiL'ir home precincts by deeds of bloodshed
and violence. A few annoying fleos In the
Vide of the mastiff, staunchly hearing down
LU enemy, would be on appropriate if not
very elegant figure to set forth the relative
I:i (portions in the case.
But if they have failed, and will still Ml to
d cute the semblance they seek, wherewith
t<-ui(l the rebellion, their .guilt is none the
k -h. Their deeds of murder ore real. Their
!• melons plottings against loyalty arc gen
uine. Their deserved penalty is none the
K-.& because they failed to sweep across the
I j uiric State tlie red tide of war. They have
i: cant to accomplish it. "The scenes that
_ m disgraced Coles and Edgar counties arc
n rvl>vl menace against the peace of onrpros
perous communities, a howl of rebel h&tc
and protest against the happier state of loy
alty, as contrasted with the dork experiences
cl the Confederacy. * .
Coles and Edgar ore adjoining counties in
the first tier of counties south of Springfield,
the latter bordering on Indiana, and recently
the scene of disturbances similar, but less
considerable, than those of fresh occurrence
at Charleston, in Coles county. Thus
"by location latitndinally these events
way he credited to Central Illinois.
Onr dispatches elsewhere, from Charleston
and Mattoon, set forth the events very clear
ly. There arc some points we arc in posi
tion to explain, from thoroughly reliable
sources,-which throw ranch light on the mat
ter. The Mth Ulinols Hcgiment, now home
on a furlough, was the old command of CoL
T M. Harris, and recruited from that Imme
diate section. In that region Copperheads
arc numerous, and the doctrines of such
sheets as the Jett Davis organ of this city
pass as current gospel Men who hate the
war and revDc onr armies, are the prime
abettors and aiders of desertions, and neigh
borhoods where such views prevail, are the
favorite haunts of military refugees of this
•class. The exertions of onr officers to cap
ture deserters has kindled the sparks oi
treason in these counties into a fire that will
burn until Us foci is consumed. Consumed
U will be.
Both Coles and Edgar counties furnish
-striking proof and warning to all other coun
ties in the State that no local office can safely
•be entrusted to disloyal men. Two meaner
tools of the rebellion cannot be found in
Illinois than the two infamous brothers Wm,
g. O’Hair, Sheriff of Edgar county, and John
S. O'Hair, Sheriff of Coles county. Their
father* is ex-Sheriff Mike O'Hair, of Edgar,
and both arc “ chips of the old block, 1 ’ and
of the three it may be said that it is a mis
fortune to the loyal cause that the three are
out of reach of the rebel conscription, which
would find them readymade to its uses, and
less'dangerous to ns in the rebel service.
The share of Sheriff John O’Hifir, of Coles
•county, in the late disturbances is set down
In our dispatches elsewhere. Both he and
his brother are men of desperate character
h e seems to have led In the bloody work
Benin and carried out It was a deliberate
and murderous attack on the soldiers and
XJnioncltfcens, resulting In the loss of sev
eral lives, many wounded, and the flight of
the assailants. It is noticeable in this case,
;*s in Paris, Edgar county, a short time since,
that the assembling was not a chance one,;
that the Copperheads came armed, with ■wag
ons, which were arsenals in reserve, and this
with a deliberate and deadly purposed •
i In the Edgar county disturbance the brutal
VOLUME XV LL
and outrageous assaults of the Copperhead
sheet at Paris had excited the Tetcran sold
iers, who threatened to demolish it, but the
apologies of the editor saved him and it
But the Copperheads, indignant at the suc
cess of the soldiers in backing down the or
gan of treason, bad determined on vengeance,
and as is sworn to in testimony, the infamous
sheriff, Wm. 8. O’Hair, of Edgar county, se
cretly collected one hundred armed Copper
heads from Coles, Clark and Edgar counties,
impudently calling them in the secret mis
sive * posse conUtatui. The gallant soldiers
had seen rebels before, and a cleaning out
and rapid flight of the miscreants took place.
One of them, named Canady,’was captured,
sorg the Jbri* Beacon:
frhc sworn statement of Canady was taken br a
notary nubile. He declared that Sheriff O'Hair
had usd lor these men to come fo Paris in smiads of
ti.ru or jour, icWioutarms, their gvns to bebrvrfftt
in a wagon and secreted vnfil occasion called for
their vse; that apaper to this effect was read to
him, signed by Win, S. OTJnir. and witnessed by
«Jtno of the best citizen? of Paris—among others
Amos Green and, we believe, Jonathan Mayo was
mentioned in this connection. Cob Mayo posi
tively denies haring signed or eeen snch a paper;
Con it be that forgery has been committed for the
base purpose o* inaugurating a civil war In Edgar
county?
To show the design of these- miscreants we will
statcihat Snow, the editor of the Times, came up
to John Fisher, and whispering in his car, said,
“yon will sec the biggest fight over witnessed in
Paris In a few minute?,” or words to that effect.
Be was going on to moke farther revels tions,whcn
looting up la pome surprise, he exclaimed, *H), I
believe l am mistaken in the man, 1 thought it was
Dr. Ten Brook.” This was before any disturb
ance had occurred, and just previous to the time
that the guerilla? drove up their arsenal of arms.
Can there be any mistaking of what these
wretches mean ? Is there not even less dan
ger of mistaking the treatment that win beat
meet their esse? —And this. Is being applied.
The Government that, has its hond'closlng
fast on the throat of the rebellion is not in
the humor to trifle with these flre-ln-the-rear
allies of Secession. It might even be safely
left to the re-enlisting. regiments,' who
would gladly count thirty days spent In
cleaning out home scccsh as “ one month’s
furlough.’’ Let the O'Halrs whim taken he
made an example of, In a punishment so con
dign that the terror thereof shall fall upon
their comrades throughout the State. And
it will be done. The - disturbances in Coles
and Edgar will be but temporary and trivial,'
If the treatment is properly applied:'
Sakitaby Supplies. Letters received
from the. front of the Army of the Cumberland
prove the secefrity.of large and continued supplies
of vegetables, for our army. Mis. Porter writes,
from Nashville March 18th;
“On visiting a division of the Bth army corps, we
were told there were thirty cases of scanr, and
not a vegetable they cocld reach; and nothing bat
potatoes or onions would save them. When the
eurgeon was informed we had four barrels of pota
toes and one of. onions hie eyes Ailed with tears,
and he exclaimed -with delight, “that win save
them I” The rapidity with which these barrels
were carried over the rocky hill-sides, where their
tents were located, made one realize the value of
the contents; and although we could but ask, whit
arc these among so many? vet we were again as
i suredthat by them the scorbutic tendency would
be cheeked till more could be forwarded, frill not
every farmer and every citizen do something tow

have enough and to spare, withhold from onr broth

Northwestern Sanitary Commission is awake to
the emergency, and striving to meet the demand,

The correspondent of the Tunis ie guilty of
falsehood in stating that the VoUafretmd'haM polled
down the Fremont flag. There is sot a word of
truth in the statement. This journal has returned,
or proposes to return, to the advocacy of Demo
cratic men or measures.
Under no circumstances trill the Inquirer pt thla

thoroughly committed to ultra propensities.
Hon. Green Clay Smith spoke In Lexington, Ky M

After referring to the early history CIV secession,
in the States end tbs fictitious pleasure of peace
shown by the secessionists of. Kcntuaky, he
passed to the duty of her loyal citizens. Under the
present exigency; ne piodgod himself to vote men
and money to put down the rebellion. Uniiko hi*
ojiponent, he had kept his pledge as a necessary
means to prosccnte the war. The conscript law had
been passed by Congress; he voted for the amend
ment to pay loyal owners for their slaves who were
conscripted. The negro was no better worth
faring from rebel bullet than a white man. A ne
gro could dig ditches or drive teams as well as his
son or brother, drafted to do the servile work of
the army. Not less than 150,000 negroes were em
ployed by the Government for army purposes, as
laborers or soldiers, if the negro is too good for
such work then one hundred and fifty thousand
white men most be drafted to fill their places,
lie uttered a -withering denunciation of the
Congressmen from Kentucky, who had condemned
che peace party of the North. When the candidate
now sought to transfer the loyal party of Kentucky
bodily, to detestable clique. Us defense of his
votes to Congress was complete and called forth the
most hearty endorsement of the audience. To the
Presidential election, be stated that bo did not
know who the Union candidate* would be, but be
would be elected. He woulfrattcad the Baltimore
Convention himself, and would stand by Its nom

hear a Radical Congressman so heartily endorsed

A terrible aflray occurred here to-day. The Cop

and armed with pistols. Some soldiers in the Court
House yard were drawn into on alfray and the light
instantly became general.- ■ The County Sheriff

[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Mattock, Coles County, HI., March SO, 1864.
Yesterday about SO or 100 Copperheads, the most
desperate characters in this and a few adjoining
counties, assembled st Charleston, where the Cir
cuit Court was in session. A few officers and sol
diers of the G4th Illinois veterans were there on a
furlough.
. A little after 3 o'clock p. m M while Court was*
quietly in session, a man named Nelson Wells sud
denly fired on a soldier in the court yard. As
though this was a preconcerted signal, the Copper
heads In the Court Bonse and yard opened a gen
eral fire on Union men and soldiers with revolvers,
making a rush at the same time to a wagon where
they had guns concealed, and firing with these as
fast as they could get them.
The few soldiery present being taken entirely by
surprise, fought man tolly with their pistols, and
soon the dead and woonded were scattered around
the public square. The soldiers and Union citi
zens ho for guns as soon as possible, but as they
returned the rebels were in foil retreat, the whole
affr.lr thus far having occupied but a short timo,
Col. Mitchell, ol tbo 54th Illinois, was without
his revolver when it commenced. While attempt
ing to take a pistol from a man, he was shot by
another man, the ball striking his heavy gold watch
and inflicting a slight wound. Another man put a
pistol to his back and would have killed him had
it not snapped. Still another man was just about
’firing a fatal shot at him when a soldier knocked
him down with a brickbat. The Colonel was shot
at a dozen times or more. Maj, Shubal York, Sur
geon of the 54th, woe shot dead while gallantly de
fchdlns himself.
Within an hour from the beginning of the affair,
Lieut. Col. Chapman, with a portion of the 51th—
about 250 men—arrived from Mattoon, twenty-three
miles distant, and* squads were sent out after the
retreating Copperheads. About thirty-five of the
raiders were arrested daring the evening and night,
and are now here under guard.
They cut the telegraph cast of Charleston as they
retreated. They met a soldier—Levi Frelsner, Co.
C, 54th—whom they took prisoner at the command
ol John S. O’Hair, Sheriff of Cedes county, who
was at their head. •
The soldier was retaken at daylight thlstmotn
