IDE LOUISIANA DISASTER*
Tbc disaster to the advance of the army-of
Ccn. Banks at Pleasant Hill, In Louisiana, is
yet in a good deal ol confusion. Some of the
accounts are reliable enough, but they only
go to the particular misfortunes of a battery
and a few regiments. It is plain that on the
Bth Inst, the first of serious lighting, wo
met only a defeat aud loss. Two divis
ions and three batteries wuh tbc cavalty
force were driven back pell-mtai. hilled,
wounded, captured, and routed;
of a lorcc of three thousand men being among
the missing or put flora du combat Twenty
two pieces ol artillery were lost—onr Chica
go Mercantile Battery losing - all their gnus.
We place very Uttle reliance, at this time
of writing, on the accounts of the second day’s
work—the 9th—when it is. alleged that Geh.
A. J. Smith came up, turned the tide of bat
tle, captured a large number of prisoners—
all the way from 800 to 2,000, and sixteen
pieces of artillery.' This maybe so; but the
accounts arc too shadowy, and are evidently
colored by somebody with rose water to re
store the feeling of the country. We do
gather, nevertheless, that the enemy had been
checked, and probably it will turn ont thst
this is about all till some new move is made.
Bnt wc shall bo ready for tbc best news that
can be given us.
Good observers have not been without
fears of trouble in that quarter, from the
way in which the forces have been scattered.
Tour different columns haft been moving in
that direction, in all perhaps 40,000 men;
but they do not seem to bavehad any co-oper
atlon with cachother,or even to know of each
others whereabouts, if we may believe the
statements of army correspondents on the
ground. There are forces enough to sweep
the whole region; bnt they need to be some
where in each other’s vicinity, or there Is no
help for their being cut np in dctaiL The
rebel commanders in that region have not
been veiy Inckyi if we except Dick Taylor,,
who has shown on several occasions a capac
ity for striking wickedly; bnt even Pap Price,
Kirby Smith, and Marznodnke know enough
to hit, when their enemy is scattered over all
Louisiana.
Bnt it is, snd has been evident, that Gen.
Banks command Iteelfbas proceeded in a loose
condition, Instead of being kept well in hand;
and accounts from his corps have heretofore
expressed fears on Ibis account; and this fret
is evidently at the bottom of the whole trou
ble. A small advance is attacked and defeat
ed before it can be supported; the supports
which rcach*it are at first too weak, and are
also driven back,
The nature of the ground seems to have fe
vered the enemy, especially In view ol this
fault; for ills all a pine forest with single
roads through it, and occasional Clearings of
email areas. The trains block up the roads
and prevent the handling of troops; and
thus onr guns arc lost, there being no way of
bringing them off the field.
It is too early and the accounts are too
meagre to show upon whose shoulders the
blame rests with much accuracy. Perhaps It
will be distributed among two or three Gen
erals. But it is evident at this distance, that'
it Is no casualty which could not have been
foreseen and provided against; but that it is
a blunder. The first accounts laid it all upon
Gen. Stone, and his record is such as to pre
pare the public to believe charges of that
sort; but later dispatches say little or noth
ing of him, but state that the army blames
Generals Banks and Franklin. It is due to
truth to say, that the army curses in eneb
cases are not always well located. In the
chagrin of defeat blame is freely distributed,
and sometimes wrongly.
But of one thing we feel tolerably sure.
The enemy will not make much out of the
affair. Gen. Banks Is'good at retrieving, if
he has been a little too careless be has nowa
lesson which will not harm him, and we have
little fears but tbat tbe rebelm.wlll pay for
their successes with interest. Accounts at
anytime may change the look in the Bed
Elver country. They will be welcome.
COLFAX’S BESOMJriON OKE
nOBB.
Some of the New York papers are expend*
b? * great amount of zeal In the matter of
Mr. Colfax’s resolution of expulsion—con
demning it, aa if it were a crime in him, and
Mr. Long were a victim of persecution and
much to he pitied. We have already said
thyt it was doubtful whether it were, on the
whole, best to cany the resolution into ef
fect; and so Mr. Colfax himself decided, for
he modified it to a vote of censure. But
even this is condemned by at least one of the
journals alluded to, so zealous has it become
in sccesh Long’s behalf.
In addition to what has been said before
it Is to be considered, that there is no law or
code of laws written which regulates this
matter of expulsion or censure in legislative
bodies. It is a thing which is left wholly
with the body itself Their own sense ol
honor or of propriety must determine the
time when, and the conduct for which, such
condemnation is to be applied. Everything,
therefore, must depend on the particular cir
cumstances of the case. A thousand things
may go into the account, for which no pre
vious calculation con be made. There may
be words not only which are insulting, and
which shall render a man an unworthy mem
ber of a legislative body, and make it proper
that he he expelled; but there are looks,
gestures, particular and specific allusions,
which a member can use to assist in out
raging the decency of the bod; and make his
presence unbearable. These things cannot
well be reported or estimated abroad, while
they may be very apparent on the ground,
and assist materially in his condemnation.
We do not know that each were the facts
in the case of Mr. Long, but we mention
them in illustration of the fact, that the rea
sons for the expulsion or censure of a mem
ber must be estimated by the body itself,
and may not be apparent to the world out
side. And hence we arc very much more in
clined to trust the judgmen*. of the House of
Bcprescntativcs, before whom the speech of
Long was made, than that of the New York
Tivnt, or any other paper, whose editors did
not hear the speech; and even if they did,
might not be as well qualified to judge of its
insulting nature as the .body to which it was
addressed.
While therefore It is conceded that the free
dom of speech is a thing of value, and with
in the proper limits must be yet
the lights of deliberative bodies arc of some
account, and are also to be preserved.
A man may not say all be chooses under t|ie
idea of free speech. The Irishman who
thought “this a free country, and that free
dom meant to do jlst what he liked,”—even
to the taking of his neighbor’s pig without
his consent, found that he had made a mis
take. So the ton'gne is characterized in a
book not yet out of date as “a world of ini
quity” and as “set on fire of bell;” and a
Legislator even is not to blaze away at his
own will, without regard to others.
The Bouse was therefore the best judge of
the speech; and not that only. If this na
tion is to be kept keyed up to the tension re
quired to cany this war through, there has
got to be some little zeal for loyalty evi
denced by its national Legislature. In for
mer days we were accustomed to hear the
Lords of the "Plantation crack their whips,
and to sec them pull legislators by the beard
to their own liking, and Northern men cow
ered like spaniels, when they ought to have
exhibited audacity for audacity. We have
bad enough of that. We want treason to be
met on the threshold. We do not want Con
gress to sit still and hear it without limit
We leeTvcry well satisfied with this whole
matter as it is. We do not believe freedom
of specchtobcinany special danger; but
that there Is. much more danger from the
plottings of Copperheads and the* abettings
of Jeff Davis by the llre-in-the-rcar-men.
The precedents appealed to, viz.: those of
Wilkes in Parliament, and of Giddinge and
John Q. Adams in Congress, do not throw
any considerable light on the case. The cir
cumstances were all different. Our country
Is in grapple will a desperate rebellion; and

CBN. STONE.
At on early period of the war there was
TOach confidence felt by the pnbllcin Gen
Stone. Some performances of Mb near Pouu.
vlUc In Maryland, of which a flattering ac
count waa printed, Rave him conalderahle
prestige. But the ullklr of Ball's Bluff and
aome enbacqncnt operatlona along the Poto
macand over In Virginia, cloned hla ahy
pretty darkly, and the neat we know of him.
. Ijp waa shut up In Port Laiay cttc. A lone
*flled Court of Inquiry, or Court Martial, Id
cuhated hla case; and finally hatched nothing
worth mention, and he waa let ont of prison,
'find restored to commands And by w«y jt
is supposed, of salving: him over a little, and
giving a chance possibly at retrieving, he was
. packed off to Louisiana. Probably it was
supposed tbst If he did no good.be could
there do* little harm, and would be out bt
eight of his accusers. The public conse
quently forgot him; and- half the peo
ple’" to-fiay have /no Idea ; whether
he is the same man - that figured
.on the Potomac under McClellan, when now
ills ill luck of his command brings him again
-to the eurlace. But nobody will be surprised
at the disaster when it is known that lie is
connected-with it; for "whether lie has been
rightly or ■wrongly accused, such is his repu
tation, that no success is expected of him.
The rebels hare certain commanders of whom
they expect nothing; not* because they hare
not ability, but they have no “luck.” We
have such on our side; men whose bread and
bnttcr is always slipping ont of. their hands
and pitching upon the floor, buttered side
down. There are a great many able men who
never accomplish anything, lor the reason
that their ability is not of a practical, adapt
ive sort It is like the man’s speech which
he thought was good, but was told that it did
not touch the case. “But wasn’t it a good
speedi if it had touched the case?” was his
inquiry.
Whether Gen/ Stone fells from this cause
alox* is i n come doubt. It is suspected—or
was—thu be partook too strongly of Mc-
Clellan’s philosophy, and that the philosophy
ran too fast to seen for Tits own good as well
as for his sucecss as a General Ho was
thought to havo too warm a tide for tbc
rebels; and was for manipulating tbc war
politically, and with the aims of the peac«
men in his eye, bringing it to a close with
out hurting them.
Now no snch man has had any luck in this
war. All the political Generals have failed.
The man who counts the rebels' as friends,
and is for so dealing with the rebellion as that
it shall not be hurt, is of no more use than a
mnllen stalk with a gladiator. What the
rebels want is a thorough t shading ; and your
“good Lord and good Devil” sort of Gen
erals are not the i&en to give it to them.
From McClellan down they are not worth a
rush.
CURRENCY RESOLUTION POST
PONED.
The consideration of tbc currency resolu
tion before the Board of Trade was postponed
till tc-night on account of the Gen.
Sickles meeting. This will also give mem
bers more time to reflect on tbc ill conse
quences that may flow from postponing till
July the adoption of the greenback standard
of’currency.
It is asserted that the sending home of the
wild-cats may create a panic and break them,
‘if they are so rotten as that, the sooner the
fact is known the better. Only a fraction of
the issues of the Eastern banks circulate in
Illinois and adjoining States, and if they are
unable to redeem this traction in legal tender
they are no better than counterfeits,
and it is little less than criminal to ask farm
ers and mechanics to take snch base trash
in payment for tbcirhard toil
' Entire are told that we must have cords
of shinplasters of the East to move our crops.
This all humbug. It is the same old son;
that was ecu; in our cars in justification of
tie Illinois and ‘Wisconsin -wild-cat expan
sion that ended so disastrously.
It is next asserted that it, the wild-cats.are
sent home for redemption there will not be
greenbacks enough todobusiness. Wemost
: emphatically deny this statement. Let the
trial be made and hwo the question settled.
We contend that as wild-cats travel home,
greenbacks will pour in to the West,
thoTacnnm. If the volume of currency be
contracted, gold will fall, and consequently
lees currency will be required to do the busl- -
ness of the country. If half the currency
were retired, gold and greenbacks would be
of equal value; then half the currency would
suffice. .When paper money is worth tint 55
cents In-gold it takes nearly twice as much
of It to accommodate the public. If gold
should go to 400 per cent, it will
require twice the present amount of currency
to do business The country gains nothing
by expansion, while it loses in security. It
is like filling a man with whisky—stimulat
ing him, making him feel rich and reckless.
But nothing is added to his strength orsense,
by keeping him intoxicated. Better let him
get sober. Better, let the currency be con
tracted until a paper dollar bears some de
cent relation to a gold one.
If the Chicago Board of Trade hacks down
from the madly and correct financial position
it has taken, it must blame itsclfiflt
receives the denunciations of the whole busi
ness public of the West. But a backdown,
now will not restore confidence in the wild
cats. The farmers have resolved not to touch
them. The country merchants can do noth
ing with them. The industrial classes are de
termined to have the greenbacks and noth
ing else, and onr Board of Trade may as well
retain the’ glory ol having set the ball in mo
tion to give the West a National cnrrency.'
WHO IS 818. LONG?
There are a great many Longs; hnttheman
of that name now most conspicuous before
the American people is Alexander Long of
the Cincinnati district, Ohio, who has just
read and recited a speech before the House of
Bcprcsentativcs in Washington. The speech
is no great affair, any more than its author,
in itself considered, but It has attained to
some notoriety by the noise made about it.
Mr. Long himself Is one who passes at home
for a very fair sort of man. apart from poli
tics; and has had a good many friends from
the fact of Lis inconspicuity ;* so that when
after the failures of McClellan’s campaign,
and the general want of military success in
ISC2, upon his presenting himself as a candi
date for Congress, aud announcing his belief
In the war as the remedy for the troubles on
band, be was elected by a small majority.
Up to his election likeSeymourofNewYork,
he was for vigorous hostilities. Be aided In
getting up a regiment, aud was for patting
down the rebels as a policeman puts down a
burglar; circulating tickets with this motto:
“ Fora vigorous prosecution of the war, and
no compromise with traitors.”
Bat os soon as elected, he turns square
round, and Is for peace. The ladder by
which ho crawled up ioto the National Legis
lature, was war, but he kicks it away as
soon as he is safe in his place, and leaves his
dupes who elected him to digest their folly
os best they can. But their digestion is
good; and at the election last fall, his dis
trict gave Brough 7,000* majority. Will Mr,
Long resign under the vote of censure, as is
customary in such cases? Not a bit of it. He
is not of the resigning kind. That would be
to step out of daylight into darkness; and
Alexander Long of Ciacinnati would never
be heard of more.
It is time we were done with such as he;
and his case ought*to help the loyal public to
know in advance a certain ordcrof men, who
are loyal enough to get an election, but who
begin to fiat out their heads and hiss, the mo
ment they fed safe in their places.

ClarksTiUo>»!tcwß from tlie
Indian Territory.
(Brom our Special Correspondent)
Foet Smith, Ark., April 9, 18CL
A messenger being about to leave for Tort
Gibson, Indian Territory, thence north with
the mail via Kansas, your correspondent
takes occasion to forward a few brief notes
by the way.
My last informed yon of the removal of the
major portion of the army of the
Frontier from Western Arkansas, by Briga
dier General Thayer. Wc have dispatches
here this morning to the effect that the force
under his command has effected a junction
with Major General Steele, from Little Rock,
at or near Canton. General Sterling Price
commanding the rebels, is in fall retreat
from South-Western Arkansas, towards
Shreveport, Louisiana, where are General
Kirby Smith’s headquarters. From the
news from General Banks’ Department it
would appear that General Albert A, Lee,
with the cavalry, is pushing np in that di
rection. In allprobabilitythere will be an
engagement in Northern Louisiana. Kirby
Smith !s accounted an able man, and with
the combined forces of Price and Dick Tay
lor, must have a considerable army. ;
Wc arc having r 6ome excitement* here
abouts. Since Gen. Thayer managed to get
one Kansas regiment under his control,*and
then to march them away, this region is left
inviting and open for the “bushwhackers.’,’
They have not failed to avail themselves of
the occasion.** •
Within ten days we have had a number of
little skirmishes. At Roseville, where the
Ist Kansas colored has beep stationed, gather
ing and ginning cotton, and vhlch Is now
held by a small cavalry force from the 2d and
Cth Kansas, two attacks have been made.
The first was a guerilla gang, Tfid by a former
citizen of the place, whose chief object seem
ed to be to destroy the. cotton confiscated
from him.. Ho snececdcd in this, burning 134
bales, a gin and dwelling house, all formerly
owned by himself. The attack was renewed
on Sunday last upon ibis place. The rebels
were reported to have been 450 strong, under
Geu. Davis, and .principally Texans The at-,
lack was made at 0 a. m., and the tight lasted
over two hours. The rebels were repulsed,
leaving six dc*d, and sixteen prisoners in onr
hands. Onr loss was two killed and
eigbt wounded, among whom was Captain
Goss of the Cth Kansas. Capt Gardner, of
tbc 2d was in command. Onr men behaved
with great gallantry. The cotton at this
point, of which there is a considerable quan
tity belonging to the Treasury Agent, was
used as breastworks. Teams hare been sent
from* here to bring all the cotton to this
point, and abandon Roseville. The place is
of no special military importance, and the
small force in that region render its conpcir-'
tr&tioii imperative U order to protect the
necessary forage and supply trains, and holt*
the route between here and Dardanncle, to
which points boats come from Little Rock.
Prisoners take* &t Roseville report that
that Gano has about eigbt hundred men, and
tbat his intention is to concentrate the bush
whackers snd make a raid through Western
Arkansas. There is bnt little to prevent
them from doing this, except the scarcity of
forage. In the frontier district of Arkansas
there are not two thousand effective men, of
whom one-half are at this place. There are
not three hundred effective horses in the
whole command. It is evident that but little
can be done except to hold the posts and
guard trains.
Surgeon Fairchild, of the Cth, was sent
with nn escort of twenty-five men, to take
charge of tbc wonuded at Roseville. Within
fifteen miks of that place, bis party was am
bushed by one hundred rebels. At the last
advices from Roseville the Surgeon had not
been beard from, as also nine of the escort.
They are believed to be taken prisoners or
killed. Tbc remaining fifteen are known to
be in the bush.
Another party attacked Clarksville, on the
North side ol the river, a They
were repulsed and pursued by a party of the
4th Arkansas, who surprised a camp, killing
five, *oundimrflve,ana capturing ten prison
ers, nineteen horses, and camp equipage.
The pickets were driven in at Van Enron,
four miles from this place, three nights since,
and small guerilla bands infest tbe country
round for many miles. A number of citizens
have been robbed and murdered. Two who
came in stated that a party came to their
forms, took their horses, and Informed them
that it was their intention to kill every man
who voted to make Arkansas a free State.
There is little doubt that many will be mur
dered. It is qult£ evident that with tbe present
force and management the raiders will have
things in tbis region pretty much their own
way. No forage, no horses, yavalry all dis
mounted. on three-fourths rations, and un
less the river soon becomes in a boating con
dition, • the prospect of being reduced
again, for there is not a week's breadstuff at
this depot. 'The lookout ahead for Western
.Arkansas is very jrioomy, These guerilla
movements would m great part be suppress
ed if we had an efficient commander and
more cavalry. But In some things wo are
like the Bourbons —we neither learn or un
learn by experience. Onr Missouri border
warfore seems to be without a lesson to the
powers that be. The Western Arkansas
guerillas arc not yet well organized. They
have no special head. With an efficient com
mander, they could he routed in detail.
WbalwctiMc want is a couple of regiments
of Western cavalry, energy and sternness in
the command, a few examples of punish
ment, and in less than two-months a large
portion of this region will be s-ife
enough for tbe Dormers to work, which they
dare not do now.
A party of scouts. eight in number, encoun
tered forty-five rebels, thirty miles south
east ot this place, and only succeeded in ef
fecting their retreat after a sharp fight, in
which two men were killed. ‘ A party of cit
izens, “Mountain Feds” as they are called,
who lived at the Sugar Loaf; a mountain
range twenty miles sonth ol here, brought In
two prisoners day before yesterday. "Both
had been in the rebel service, came into our
lines last winter claiming to be conscripts or
deserters, and enlisted In one of onr regi
ments. -As soon as they were armed and
elotbed they deserted, taking to the brush.
They have committed numberless depreda
tions, ami will undoubtedly be shot
From the Indian Territory we have little
news. Stan tValtie was reported to hare
moved to within sixty or seventy miles of
this point, but an extensive scout, made by
order of General Blunt discredits the facta of
the report. Nothing has been seen except
some small bands of Choctaws, for eighty
miles south-west ofFort Smith.
If Gen. Blnnt had any force to move with,
the opportunity now presents Itself for doing
effectual service in breaking up Kirby
Smith’s depots of supplies in Northern
Texas, by a raid through the Chickasaw Na
tion and the Ked River, into Western Texas,
towardslhc Brazos. Everybody is fretting
at tbeir forced inactivity.
’lbe weather is very chilly and disagree
able. The *• Sunny South” is so far a bois
terous fiction. The river obstinately refuses
to riec, and the rain will not come. Unless
the first named event occurs, this region
must be abandoned. Scout.

FROM TFASIIISGTOS.
[From Oar Eegnlar Correspondent]
Washington, April 18,15GL
WILL CONGRESS RISK TO THE DEiIAND 07 TUB
situation ?
. The above is the question now earnestly
asked by all thoughtful and patriotic minds
In the country. And well it may be, for on
its solution depend the honor. and safety of
the state. If Congress fails to comprehend
and act upon the needs of the country, it
will eoon have no country—at least none but
a divided, tom, distracted and bankrupt one
to act for. For my part, and I deeply regret
to be obliged to say it, I fear Congress either
docs not comprehend the necessities of the
times, or has not courage to meet them as
they should be m et. No panacea for the ills
under which we labor, which will at all meet
the condition of the patient, has as yet been
proposed in Congress. Mr. Stevens’ bill to
tax the State bonks is but a half measure,
and will not meet the case. The tax bill by
the Committee on Ways and Means bears too
heavily on some of our most essential indus
trial interests and too lightly upon articles
of which speculators have a monopoly.' And
1 fear that when It comes to be torn to
pieces by the opposition side of the
House, aided by members on the Administra
tion benches, it will present a sorry specta
cle, shorn of its present fair proportions, as
it most likely will be. The fate of the tar on
si irits on hand threatens It. The t pit his that
many Admlnlstrationmembers are controlled
so much by local interests and individual
selfishness, that they fail to act for the inter
ests of the whole country; while the oppo
sition always acts with the intention of em
barrassing the Administration and inciden
tally aiding the rebellion Unfortunately,
they have hitherto been able, In conjunction
with men in our ranks renresenting certain
local Interests, To in a great measure effect
their purposes. Even Mr. Stevens* bank tax
bill is threatened with defeat in this way. It
will be opposed by all the Copperheads on
their old principle of State rights, while
many New England men, and members from
States with wild-cat interests, or those
personally interested or subsidized by State
banks, will also endeavor to defeat* it. In
glaring contrast with onr Congress, mark
that of the rebels.- No individual interest
there appears to he allowed to stand in the
W'ay of the common cause. That Congress
is a standing reproach to this. No wonder
that foreign newspapers point to it as an ex
ample of the unity and determination of the
rebels, while they taunt ours as the repre
sentative of a divided people. Compare our
condition financially with that of foreign
governments under similar circumstances.
Napoleon on the veiy day of his unparalleled
triumph at Ansterlitx ever ibe armies of Rus
sia and Austria, received newi; that the notes
of the Bank of France had declined five per
cent from the specie value. He immediately
posted to Paris, and his first act while ascend
ing the stairs of the Tnileries was to dismiss
nis Secretary of the Treasury, M- do Barbe-
Marbols. In onr case the national currency
has declined seventy per cent below its par’
value; the Secretary of the Treasury long
since pointed out the canse of this terrible
depreciation; yet up to this moment Con
gress has literally done nothing to remedy
an evil in which is involved the very cause in
which the country is engaged, and of a con
sequence the very country itaelfi And it has
w of warning' that Congress
ln tho vreimses. The press
the CopUc^o'S^^VsUorr
finance one of the most embarrassing in the
prosecution of the war. Even the rebel pa
pers took up the matter, and pointed out
to us our ’weakness in this respect, and of
course enabled the most obtuse among us to
take warning. But all has been In vain; con
fiscation, freedmen’s. affairs, whisky, ' any
thing and every thing Congress was willing
to act upon, but the one thing most needful,
indeed absolutely necessary for the prosecu
tion of the war. I know that for months
Mr. Chase boa been most anxious on this
point. Indeed he has been accused
of croaking by the trimmers. He was, how
ever, likeaprudentmanager, only preparing,
or seeming to prepare for the necessities of
the hour. The inflation of the currency has
aleo brought its inevitable attendant evils—
speculation, extravagance, and oyer importa
tion. People will buy foreign luxuries when
they can afford it, or think they can. T no
tice in the late New York papers long lists of
vessel arrivals from foreign ports, all with
cargoes of the products and manufactures of
the tropical and temperate countries of the
globe; also that tbe European steamers
Lave been compelled to put on extra vessels
to accommodate the increased traffic. I also
observe*that specie Is beginning to' flow out
to pay for their importations, at the same
time that nearly all of our California produc
■tionof that article goes to England by the
Isthmus. On Saturday nearly a million of
dollars left New. York for England and
France: To stop the outflow, and arrest the
extravagance of the country, I now leam
that it is proposed in' Congress to lay a duty
tantamount to a prohibition upon articles of
foreign consumption, , especially luxuries.
Now, it is a very serious question whether
such would prove at all effective, unless the
country is brought back to somethin? like a
specie basis. Even our rigid blockade does
not prevent the South from Importing from
abroad to an extent which culls for the
reprobation of the press and the prohibition
•of the Government. The inflation ot the cur
rency operates In the very opposite direction
to prohibition, and as that goes on the tariff
must be raised in proportion,* and when it
.amounts to absolute prohibition, the smug
glers - will easily find measures to
evade the exciseman, especially in a
country with such’a line of coast-and
frontier as onrs possesses. Then again such
a prohibitory duty gains ns the ill-will of
other countries. England and France will
look upon it with feelings of hate. Nor can
we expect to keep up a one-sided trade with
them. They cannot take onr breadstnffs if
wc cannot take their wares. So the measure
“ cuts both ways,” and '•ill be found nob to
effect the purpose intended after aIL The
remedy and tbe only remedy really is that
which Congress does not appear to dare to
supply—taxation and a diminution of the
currency.. It tbe present state of affairs con
tinues wo wiil be compelled in tbe end to do
as the Confederates have done, that Is force
the funding of the currency. A desperate
state of affairs requires a desperate remedy.
If this Congress bos not the conraje to tax
State Bank issues out of existence, and raise
a revenue by taxation sufficient for the needs
of the Government, >tad to provide beyond
all contiugiucics for the payment of the In
terest on tbe public debt, the next will be
compelled to resort to measures which only
the most absolute sovereigns and the most
■ drtpotlc governments in “their extremities
have dared to inaugur tic. Let Congress take
warning from the history of nations nnd act
firmly, decisively and courageously ere It be
too late. “ F.
FROK ENGLAND.
THE REMOVAL OF THE BRITISH CONSULS
IMUESOim •
gpcccli or Earl Rnsnscll on llic
American Question.
Id the House of Lords, April 5, Lord Clan*
ricarde, in moving for correspondence rela
ting to the removal of British Consuls from
the Confederate States ol America, described
and defended the proceedings for which
these officers Lad been dismissed .bj the
Foreign Scerctarr. The Consuls were ac
credited to the Federal Government, and the
charge against them, in one case, was for
warding. under an ollieial certificate, letters
to the Northern States containing bills of
exchange for the payment of debts due in
England; In another, that the Consul Lad
been instrumental in shipping specie on
board an English.vessel-of-war, for trans
mission to England,to pay the dividends on a
public debt. He contended that these acts
were not illegal, as the state of war did not'
cancel private or public obligations.
Earl Bussell said—lt is rather difficult to
make out the exact object which my noble
friend ha* in view; bat I will detain your
Lordships a short time by a few remarks on
tbe various circumstances to which he.has
alluded. In tbe first place, he said it was not
right to say that the Confederate Govern
ment had cent away our Consuls, nor that
many British subjects bad been compelled to
serve in tbe Confederate armies. I can only
•peak of tbe facts reported to me, and as I
thought quite notorious. There have been
complaints over and nvnr ng*la from differ
ent parts of tbe Confederate States that Bri
tish subjects were obliged to servo In their
militia and armies. We bare had to consult
tbe law officers, who have said that It was
not fair to make British subjects, not being
American citizens, serve In the armies of el
tberbelligercnt, without giving them time to
leave the country if they thought fit. ’ I have
acted on that opinion, and it seems to me not
only law. but lair and equitable. My noble
iriend may tblnk they ought to be compelled;
I believe they ought not to be Then my no
ble friend enters into the question of the
withdrawal of Mr Bunch’s exequatur, which
was taken away, I think, very unfairly by the
-United States Government, on the ground
that he had communicated with the enemy:
Then be enters into the ease of Mr. Magee,
who sent specie in a British ship-of-war, and
he blames Lord Lyons for what he did In that
matter. I believe Lord Lyons has token the
utmost pains, in his most responsible posi
tion, to behave fairly and impartially between
both parties. Permission was obtained from
the American Government that British ships
of war should be allowed from time to time
to go to blockaded porta; but Lord Lycos
tbongbt it an abuse of tbe privilege that
specie should ho sent to a Confederate
port in a British ship-of-war, inasmuch os
such specie might afford means of carrying
on Mar against a State friendly to Great Bri
tain. He accordingly stated that opinion,
and if he had not done so the American Gov
ernment most have withdrawn the privilege,
and I think there is nothing in the law of na
tions that would have deprived them of tbe
power to do so. [Qcnr.j I thought that
Lord Lions was right; and I sent out an
order that the Consul who had sent the spe
cie should not be continued in his functions.
[Hear.] But my noble friend gave a rather
detailed account of the conduct of Mr. Grid
land Now, while that gentleman was acting*
as Consul at Bichmomi, I believe he enjoyed
the confidence and respect of every one for
the manner in which he performed his du
ties. He was desired to go to Mobile not as
Consul, but to act as consol—to defend and
protect British property and inter
ests. It *was certainly a very
unjustifiable act* on tbe part 'of our
consuls, or of any one acting fora Britlsb
Consul, to tell British subjects that they were
not to resist their enlistments In the Confed
erate army, but to desert their colors in tbe
moment of action. 1 think that very im
proper advice on the part of a consul; and, I
do not think there was any instruction given
to our consular agents which could justify
any of them In giving that advice. I do not
find cither in the opinion of the law officers
of the Crown, or in any directions that I gave
myself anything that would justify that
course; and if the Secretary of the Confeder
ate States had written to this country -to
complain of that conduct, I should have
thought it right to reprimand, and even to
dismiss the consul who had acted in so im
proper a manner. Instead ot that tbe Presi
dent ol the so-called Confederate Government
sent away our Consuls, though these are tbe
persons to whom British subjects would
naturally have recourse In order to obtain re
dress for grievances. Tbe only remedy they
! would have when the Consuls were removed
, was that suggested by Mr. Benjamin—name
ly, that soldiers in the field 'might apply to
the tribunals of the country. A man might
easily write to bis consul to claim redress,
but that a man marching about should go to
a court of law—that was a thing which could
not be done. I therefore thought that was a
very harsh and unfriendly proceeding on tbe
part of the Confederate Government At the
same time, it ought to be remembered, like
wise, that the Confederate Government has
good reason to complain of our Consul; and
our Consul saying that be bad been so instruc
ted,the Confederate Government might at first
have believed him. Therefore, I did not enter
into any complaint or angry remonstrance;
but I asked Mr. Mason whether, if Consular
agents, or persons under any other name,
were sent to the Confederate States, inter
; course might not be carried on and negotia
tions opened, by which we might be able to
obtain redfess where redress ought to be
given, or have reasons stated for its refusal.
My noble friend does not complain of that.
There has, no doubt, been a delay in carrring
that arrangement into effect. It was thought
necessary to send a letter to Richmond to
know whether such persons would be re-*
• ccived; and tbe letter the Federal Govern
ment would not allow to be sent. But I
think It Is quite right ot the British Govern
ment to endeavor to open communications
with the so-called Confederate States, with
out recognizing them, yet, as being States
of considerable extent, in which civil war
Is carried on, and in which there is a consid
erable number of British subjects, I
say there can bo nothing wrong in
endeavoring to enter into communica
tion with those States. [Hear, hear.]
My noble friend has addressed your Lord
ships on various other subjects. 1 dcsireti
Mr. Cranford, when he arrived at Richmond,
to call the attention of the Government to
the intercepted correspondence a correspond
ence which I believed at the time to be gen
uine, and which showed that a party in the
country had been employed by the Confeder
ate Government to procure means of carry
ing on war against a State in amity with us,
Mj noble friend is aware that Her Majesty
declared at the beginning of this war her de
termination to preserve a strict neutrality,
and prohibited her subjects from taking part
on one side or the other. I ain sorry to say
the injunction of Her Majesty has not been
obeyed. I have .thought it right on every
occasion, when it appeared to me that there
was ground of complaint against the United
.States, to remonstrate with the Federal Gov
ernment. With regard to the document to
which my noble friend alluded, it has been
the subject of a great deal of inquiry. It
was said to have been published in a New
York paper as genuine; but Mr. Seward
states that, having made farther inquiry,
he finds it to have been altogether a forgery,
[A laugh, and “Hear, hear,”] It was sup
posed to nave been issued by the Secretary of
the Confederate Navy, but it was, in fact, an
invention of some gentleman in. New York.
Certainly, I should not think of making any
complaint on that, subject to the so-called
Confederate Government. There was a
question with regard to which my noble
friend made inquiries before tbe holidays—l
mean the case of the Saxon. That is before
the courts, and the ship and cargo have been
released. It is alleged that a British subject
was murdered; and the American Govern
ment have ordered that a court-martial shall,
tiy.tbo officer accused of the murder. With
regard to the motion of my noble - friend, 1
suppose he will not depart from the usual
form and object to tbe introduction of the
words M or.extracts l ’ after the words “so
called” before “Government of die Confed
erate States.” Otherwise it ml?ht seem as if
the House recognized the Confederate States,
although Her Majesty baa cot done so.
The Marquis of Glanricardo said he had no
objection to the amendments proposed by
Ms noble friend.
Tbe motion as amended was'then agreed to.
M ELOQUENT TRIBUTE.
Letter from Gen. Slicrman to Col.

HEADQUARTERS MIL. DIV. OF MIS 3., I
KAtGviLLB, Term., April 5,1861. J
Col. Ezra Tatlob, Chief of Artillery, Hants
vile, Alsu:
Dear* Colonel—As the current of events
has ficcmihgly parted ns, and may drift onr
rcepectlve courses into new channels, it is
both a duty and a pleasure forme to give yon
this, my assurance of affection and respect
You first joined mo on Shiloh field, the
night before tbe rebel host fell with headlong
fnry on onr aamp, where mil of ns, yet un
used to war’s dread sounds, struggled man
fully and well to vindicate onr manhood and
onr country’s claim to national existence.
Onr 1 rst Interchange of thought was in fu
rious battle, but by courage and tenacity of
purpose wc hurlcd'back that host; and then
began the more agreeable social intercourse
of the camp. Yon and I can far better recall
in memory the thousand little incidents that
attended onr'.slow but steady advance on
Corintb, than I can attempt to record them;
bnt then began a friendship which I hope
will last as long as we do.
Hanger and mutual reliance often times
crowd m a few hours life long relations. To
gether, riding side by side, we passed thro’
tbe enemy’s deserted camps of Corinth, on
1o Holly Springs and Memphis. Then we
were allowed a rest, bnt as the summer heat
passed into autumn’s breezes, again we were
in motion, and by a piece of strategy
more -skillful than the world appreci
ates, we forced tbe enemy to abandon
Ms strong lines of the Tallahatchie;
and then turned on that plan around which
centered some of the most interesting events
ot American history, Vicksburg. First baf
fled, bnt not dismayed, we strnek Arkansas
Poet, and again to Vicksburg. To me al
ready it seems as a dream; out It was no
dream, but a reality. Yon and I and our
brave companions worked with a persistence
and auergy that gives us*a claim to onr
country’s gratitude, which in due time 1
know will bo accorded. Vicksburg was a
test question. There onr enemy bad all the
advantages of an impregnable position, yet
by the va-or and energy of the soldiers, and
the unbounded resources of the country, onr
nation conquered. Should not that fact
make ns love and honor onr country? It
did; and God grant that we all shall live'to
feel tbe merited reward for having associated
I onr names with that grou Nations!
event, which is conclusive as to tbe
ability of .onr soldiers to accomplish any
thing within the limits of human power.
Bnt there was no rest for ns, on we went
to Jackson, and lust not least, when onr fol
lows at Chattanooga and Knoxville otlled for
help, they called for ns and we went,' carry
lug with ns our tried soldiers and onr skill
ful artillery, and at onr approach the clouds
of danger raised, and tbe sun of safety shone
brighter than ever.
would that we could now rest and dwell
with complete satisfaction at thcpast, bnt
you and 1 can not bid the elements of strife
to cease, bnt must go on. each in the sphere
assigned ns by the constituted authorities of
our country, rejoicing, however, thatwchayc
that common flag that makes ns one, and
that onr efforts arc still directed to the end
that that flag shall ever be’ the emblem of
strength and glory, not only over the land
we claim, but wherever a ship can float.
Accept Dear Colonel, tbe assurances of
my personal friendship and official respect.
Though apart in person, in fact and in spirit
ve are still together, and God grant that wo
may continue to maintain these relations till
we pass away, and onr children step upon
the rostrum of life and claim onr honors.
Truly your friend, *

MORE REBEL PLOTTLVGS.
A New Tray to Raise the Wind,
[Corr. N, T. Herald.]
London, April 3,1854.
1 have just learned the last rebel move on
this side, and one that bodes no good to yon
if it is permitted to be carried out The facts
are undoubted, as Igot them from a source
high in the.rebel confidences. Mr. Ward,
formerly United States Minister to China,
has just returned to England from Sccessia,
with an Important financial mission from the
rebel government.- Finding their ways «ud
means foiybtaining important supplies—like
Arsns.'powder, munitions of all kinds, cloth
ing, medicines, iwrurles, &c, —greatly cur
tailed by the drawing around them of the
Union lines, and by movements like those of
Kilpatrick, Sherman and Grierson, they are
going to make herculean efforts to make
blockade running a great success. Ward Is
authorized to raise a half million sterling in
Europe, and form a company for equipping
a fleet offset sailing steamers to ran tbe
blockade and fight when necessary. These
steamers arc to be employed between Bcr
muda, Nassau and Havana, and the ports
of Charleston and Mobile.
Gen. Mcßce.now in Paris,is jointly charged
with Ward in blowing this monster babble.
They nre trying to induce flats is Paris to
subscribe capital. So many-English specula
tors have got thelr fingcrs burnt In blockade
running adventures that I doubt if the scheme
will go clown very well among the hangers
on of Capel Court. The prime movers here
are Stringer—partner of W. S. Lindsay, M. P.,
who was made so notorious in Major ilase’s
letter in the Intercepted correspondence—his
chum, Collie, of Lcadenhall street, and one
Captain Kershaw. ‘ The management in Lon
don is all to be entrusted to Stringer, who Is
to have the ordering or purchasing of oil the
steamers, and who will, o£ course, pocket
fat commissions, ns he did when employed
by Major Ilnec. Half of the steamers are to
he built in Glasgow by Thompson & Co.
(Stringer’s partners), and the others by friends
of bis on the Thames. Erlaugcr, of Paris,
has been applied to to join the scheme and
help raise tbe tiu; but he got bit so badly lu
the rebel loan that he will have nothing to
do with it Fart of the scheme consists of
employing a portion of the funds of the com
pany in buying rebel cotton bonds, now sell
ing at filly-two, equivalent to thirty-eight
discount. Tbe rebel Government is obliged
to resort to this scheme for “raising the
wind,” as their credit is so bad lu Europe
that they cannot borrow another dollar, or.
get further into debt for necessary supplies.
They hope by buying up the rebtl cotton
bonds to raise them to par, and so prepare
the Enropcm market for another loan of
£10.000,000. This would be a nice sum, aqd
no doubt Mr. Davis and his crowd wish they
may get it. Perhaps John Bull is such a gull
as to be taken in twicc'by slaveholders’ pro
mises to pay.
Garibaldi In England*
[From the N. T. Tribune.]
The ovation which the English people hafe
prepared for the great leader of European
Democracy, Gen. Garibaldi, exceeds, os was
to be expected, everything that England has
witnessed for many years. The curiosity and
sympathywith which Kossuth was welcomed
in England on his liberation from captivity
in Turkey was a great triumph of the gallant
chieftain of an oppressed nation; and more
recently the success of 3fr. Beecher amodg
the liberal classes of the English population
has attracted the attention of both America
and Europe. But if wo may judge by the
tone of the English press of oil parties, the
reception of neither can be compared with
that of Gen. Garibaldi. It may be doubted
whether any other living man, could produce
In England so,profound and-universal an
agitation.
• The most remarkable incident in this pop
ular enthusiasm is that it has earned away-a
very large portion of those classes ofEnglish
society which feel anything but sympathy
with the political principles of Garibaldi.
Those who have eagerly embraced every op
portunity to denounce and malign democra
cy are now.busy on obtruding tbeir invita
tions upon the eminent representative of Ital
ian democracy; and papers like The T*met y
and The 2(ahchcster Guardian, which have
hardly ever sympathized with the movements
of Garibaldi, now c»ll him “the foremost of
all the idols of the popular heart.”. His re
ception at Southampton on landing on Eng
lish soil was most enthusiastic. The-belis of
all the churches were ringing; flags were fly
ing from every window, and, favored by the
weather, the people mads a general move to
ward the Mayors ho-ise, where Garibaldi’s
flag was hoisted. Addresses were presented
to theGencralfromNcwcaßtlcandßristol,and
invitations were madehtm to vist these cities.
The plans of Garibaldi have not yet been
announced; but no one who has followed his •
post career will feel 'any doubt that if he.
speaks on political questions, it will be in
accordance with his principles. ' The Liberal
Party of England hopes, and the Tories fear,
that be may speak without reserve on politi
cal questions. '
We may add here, that thennmerous friends
of the illustrious Italian in this country may
have ere long an opportunity of seeing the
old hero, for wo learn from a letter 'from
England that a visit of the General to our
country is highly probable.

FINANCIAL AND Co7J3ffiSClAl.
THE MONEY MARKET.
Thursday Btenino, April 21,156*.
There baa been a very brisk demand for money to*
day, and many borrowers have beoa turned away
empty banded. The excitement of the past faw days
la currency matters,constrains the bankers-1» exar
else much more caotlon In their discounting opera,
tloas than heretofore, and the result is that contraction
is the order among them all. W« will not say that
ttiu nnjndtcloos-or wrong, hat there is no doabt tot
that It Is extremely inconvenient to those In want of
accommodations. The change that 1s taking place
may render this coarse necessary, bat we doabt not
that (he necessity for its continuance will soon be ob
viated by a bountiful substitution of good wholesome
currency for the vile, greasy, wild-cat, red-doz. suc
tion-proof stuff, which we have (Signified by the
nsma of currency, and used it as such for ihs past
jearertwo.
Exchange has not been so close for a year pastas to
day. The same causes that have made money scarce
have.operated upon exchange. In many Instances
bankers have purchased of each other at % to supply
cnstomersjn the same price, and In soms instances at
less than that figure. Wc quote It at KQSOc buying;
and KQK idling.-The profits to. dealers may Just
now be regarded as exceedingly small. We can only
hope that tbe old Ice King will ioon abdicate a; Mack
inaw, and give onr dealers a chance toseal exchange
East in tbe shape of Hour, grain, pork, &c. When
this occurs, rslief.wtn pretty surely follow.
Tbe gold market In Sew York tc-daywas rather
quiet. The range of quotations was as follows:
Openel at 10 a.m.. 167; U jlw., IfITX; 13 m., i$3X:
pai/iO; and closed at the Second Board at I69jf.
The market here was firm, hat transactions light. In
the early part of the daylhobuylag price was 185; hut
later In the day If® was psli, and perhaps IGTmljht
have been- obtained. Tne great- fluctuations in the
New York market compels onr brokers to maintain a
pretty broad margin between the prices there and
here. Silver it firm at 155QK8. Legal tender notes
are as dull to-day as at almost any time previous to the
cnrreocy excitement. The buying price Is KQJS.and
theeelllogX- As we predicted weuld be the cate,
large lots were offered to the-brokers to-day, and
sellers were obliged to take H premium for them or
carry them home again. The legal tender speculation
bes not proved a very profitable one. -s>2os we quote
at 1W buying, and x selling.
ThetraneactloDi inuncunent money are active, and
tbe rates ore H&H for Wisconsin, and X for Michigan,
&c.

drawn thither to asilst In the ceremonies consequent
upon the reception of Major-General I>. E. Sickles
