'President Lincoln, in Lis remarks at Baltl
more, observed, that the mode in which re
dress was to be sought for the outrage of
Fort Pillow, was not yet determined on; and
Indicated that it.might bea question oJjeome {
difficulty. We have Contederate prisoners ■
enough in our hands, and Jt would seem to
‘be easy to select three or four hundred men
out -of-Camp -Douglas, by lot or otherwise,
and order them shot at once. - But it will
• hardly do lor the Government of the United
gtatts to proceed with rashness, or to be
grxiliy of any act which may aavor of cruelty.
It-ls hard to say what might be properly
' done under some conceivable circumstances;
bat in seeking redress for a violation of the
law, we most proceed lawfully, so as to se
cure the approbation of civilized nations,
and to stop the mouths of the rebels them
Tire men who werpetrated the horrible
atrocity of murdering men after surrender,
were not a parcel of unauthorized guerillas.
£ad they been "each, we might proceed to
-‘hunt and-kill them as murderers, without
any further ceremony. But they are the reg
ular soldiers of the Confederacy, wearing its
uniform, bearing Its commission, and re
ceiving its pay—acting thus in all respsets
under its authority. Tbs first steps in onr
course are therefore clear. .We must know
of the rebel authorities if these acts are done
by their orders or permission; if they will
take the responsibility of them, or disavow
them, and relinquish to punishment the per
The rebels themselves, have jnst set an ex
ample of the proper mode‘of procedure.
They found, or preUuded to find, upon the
person of CoL Dahlgrcn, whom they killed,
a copy of orders—real or spurious—detailing
the work to be domaby his command when
Richmond should be in their hands.- Soma
of the items were, the taking oil of Jeff Da
vis, and sundry acts of burning and devasta
tion; averred to be contrary to ths rales of
regular-warfare. Allrebeldombaa continued
to be greatly exasperated by these orders,
which they affirm to be genuine, but which
have been supposed to be forgeries, for the
sake of effect. Their made of procedure has
been to inquire oi onr military leaders in
Virginia if each orders were given te Col.
Dahlgren; and if he was carrying out tbe
policy .of the United States government in
tbe endeavor to act upon them. j
Gen. Meade and Gem Kilpatrick have both
replied, that no inch orders were given to
CoL Dahlgren; and utterly disavow all re
sponsibility lor them. Thus the matter we
suppose will rest, unless it may still housed
as a sort of bugbear in tbe way of firing tbe
Southern heart, fiat assuming that anyjsucb
papers were lonnd upon CoL Dahlgren, jtbclr
mode of procedure was obviously the proper
one in the premises.
If Jell. Davis avows the act of Fcrrcst, it
will then be. necessary to consider the next
step. It will then be for ns to decide upon
wbat act of retaliation we will enter. In
that case it might be proper to proceed to ex

Ko living Democrat has a better right to
speak for the Democratic party than Geteral
Daniel E. Sickles. Though still a ypnng
pini, comparatively, his party, at.the break
log out of the war, contained few, if any
gentlemen ol higher claims to statesmanship,,
whether evidenced by the many official posi
tions with which it had rewarded him, or the
ability which he had brought to the perform
ance of their duties. Hieing from a penniless
Journeyman printed, his sympathies have al
ways been with the people. Obtaining his
first prominence in the strongly Democratic
city of New* York, In Jackson's time, he coaid
xiul have been other than a' Democrat oi
the Democrats. One of the ablest members
of the New York bar, the Democrat
ic party made him. counsel for , tbe
city, x 'When he represented her in the
Legislature be was the acknowledged leader
of that body. In Congress tbe Democracy
had no morelmpressiveadvocate,-noßtannch
cr or more zealous partisan. He bad accom
panied Buchanan to England as Secretary of
Legation, and his personal relations with
Douglas, Cass, and the other 'Democratic
statesmen of the. country, were those ol a
recognized Democratic leader with his peers.
A domestic calamity, which was snrely
more his zmslorlnne than bis fault, darkened
bis threshold, and blighted his fame in the
eyes of many. Bat who can fall to admire
him as heleavcshls scat in Congress to enlist
_as a private soldier for the Union, trusting
■only to the appreciation of his fellowpri
vatcsandhis superiors for promotion. Al
though without military education he has
earned promotion from military men for his
generalship, and conquered the applause of
the people for his fighting qualities., At
ChanceUorsville and Gettysburg!!, it is still
doubtful to many whether he was not tbe
most eflectlve General on tbe field. His
career in the field .Is without ablunderora
stain,.and, to-day, his soldlcrly’reputation is
worthy of his grade, which is the second in
. the army.- - - j
Neither In zeal as a Democrat, nor in the
range of his abilities, nor In the proof* of his
patriotism, has he been found wanting. Snch
is the record of the Democratic soldier who
has just been-so warmly welcomed by the
people of Chicago, and who in return for
their hospitality has given them Ms views.

Thcmeanlng ef the concluding
the General's address is not doubtful; and
jet he is a Democrat, changed in nothing save
that he has met and fought rebellion on many

“Now and for the future, the only peace that Is

Every lover of Shakspeare and of art ii
familiar with the famous Boydell copper
plates. It will be remembered that In 1735,
Alderman J. Boydell conceived the project
of establishing a Shakspeare, and to that end
solicited and bought designs from such
painters as Reynolds, West, Fuseli, Rom
ney, Northcole, Smuke, Beechie .and Opie,
at an immense expense. Tbe first engravers
of England transferred tbese gems to copper,
taking twenty years for the operation.
After a certain number of copies
had been taken .from, tbe plates,
they were laid aside, some of them having
been worn bat little, while others required
much labor to restore them to their original'
beauty.. By some means oil tbe plates found
their way to thlsconntry purchased

Taxation In England*
The British Almanac for 1864 gives tome
facts 'which show the system and scale of
taxation in England—and Its' results. In
using them, and for the convenience of the
reader, the English currency is reduced at
the rate of five dollars to the pound sterling,
omitting fractions of millions.
The revenue of the United Kingdom In
1862 . was' about $355,000,000, divided
as * follows: Customs, $120,000,000;
excise $00,000,000; Stamps, $15,000,000;
land and assessed taxes, $15,000,000; proper*
ty tax, $55,000; postofflee $13,000,000; other
receipts, $12,000,000. Total, $355,000,000.
Of the receipts from' customs, ninety; per
cent are obtained from six articles, viz:'cof
fee, spirits, sugar, tea, tobacco and wines,'as
will appear from the following statement:

Except eighteen millions of revenue fjrom
the Postofllce, the remainder of the receipts
of the British Eichcqnerare from many small
sources, 'which need not be specified. The
amount raised from these does not invalidate
the position that in Great Britain, where tax
ation has been reduced to a science, it is
found to be easier and better in raising a
large revenue, to'raise it by heavy dutiefe on
a limited number of articles', rather than to
seek to distribute the burden over a great
number of subjects- of taxation. That in
either way the payment is at last made by the
consumer, we need not take the trouble to

- Tittle Bock, Ark., April 5,1804.— An 'ex
pedition under Colonel Clayton, consisting
of about a thousand infantry, three regiments
of cavalry, and sixpleccs of artillery, (12 poimd
howitzers,) has reached Fine BlntT, after an
eventful raid down to tbe Saline river, where
they encountered a force of rebels, 3,000
strong. Tbe first encounter took place near
BrancbvUle, where the rebels were defeat
ed altera three hours* fight. They retreat
ed, and our forces followed them up. Beach
ing Mount Elba, on the Saline, next day,
wc occupied that place without resistance
the' retreating rebels not daring to make a
stand there. Ourforces where here divided—
one ctctachfhedt crossing the river, and anoth
er rcconnoiteying this side... It turned out chat
the enemy had-not crossed thfe’river, but
were discovered some distance from Motmt
•Elba, with • reinforcements,’ and advancing
upon ns. We prepared to give them a warm
reception by extemporizing fortifications' of
’ logs, rails and cotton bales.: The" enemy
came np with terrific “ vigor,*’ but were seat
. back by our steady fire. Three times they.
charged on us, and each time th«y were ; re
pulsed. We hod the advantage 'la position,
and they had at least doable the men we had.
Finally they gave way, after six hours ot
-van-effort to dislodge ns. Wethen rush
led out and charged’upon them with tremen
dous effect, ecatterhig them in all directions,
lathis engagement and that at Branchville, ’
we killed 84 of them, wounded and captured
over fitly.- • 1
In the meantime our scouting : party that
bad.been detachedand sent across .the river,
"consisting ol about 100 men, mostly colored
‘ troops, were equally as busy as we •on this
side of the river. ..They returned to, ua| at
dork, oiler having marched fifty miles down
the other side of the olyer, where they came
upon a rebel tralnof 50 army wagons filled
with supplies for the force that we so telling
ly repulsed.. The train was under an escort
of3OU rebels. The entire train was captured
and destroyed by 'our men, and the entire
300 taken prisoners.*. Over a thousand horses
-and mules fell into ourhands: ‘ -
These achievements over, and the rebels so
scattered that it was useless for us to try to
get any more fight out of them, our expedi
tion took up its line ofreturn march, and have
reached Pine Bluff in high feather. Ourloss
was very slight/- The total 1 rebel loss la 84
killed, 400 wounded, and 350; prisoners, bc
sldcß lheirtralu, horses and mules. .

> General Aspects of the Battles.
We hare seen and conversed with Mr Gooding,
just from New Orleans, who accompanied General
Ransom on the hospital heat Laurel Ulll from Al
exandria to Kew Orleans, which also had on board
about four hundred wounded soldiers tram the bat
tie of Mansfield. Mr. Gooding‘'himself was not
present at (he two days* battle, , but he gathered
considerable information In conversation with Gen,
Ransom and other wounded, officers on board the
lie eays our lose Is much larger than at first re
ported. Ajjretiy correct count of the loss in. the
infantry and artillery made it 8,050, while the'loss
•of cavalry must be foNy 1,000 more., The largest
part o( onr lose Is in prisoners. Gen. Hansom felt
pretty certain that tte loss of the enemy in killed
and wounded was mushlarger than ours. As he was
the assaulting party,- onr artillery made terrible
havoc among them. -: . ' : - -
Onr lots In the first day In guns was as follows:
six gnus of tbe Chicago Mercantile Battery; six of
the First Indiana Battery; six of Kims’ Massachu
petteßatlerv and three cede of ono of the Regular
Batteries, tne name not known. .:
On the second day’s fight we drove the; enemy
from the field, captured several guns—bow many
Mr. Goodin? cotud not say—and took about 7«X)
prisoners. IJnfortnnatcly tbe* routed and scattered
condition of onr cavalry, and the loss of so Urge a
portion of onr artillery, pot it ont of tbe power -of
onr army to follow up the routed enemy. The cne- J
my numbered about 20,000 -men, under thoi com
mand of Foliecac, Dick Taylor, Green, and Kirby
Smith. ■ • , - . ’
The whole army has fallen' hack to the river at
Nathltoches, and will undoubtedly soon abandon
West Louisiana, at least In the vi«Jlnlty of Bed
.River, altogether. Indeed, it was understood when
Mr. Gooding left Natchitoches, that tbe IClh and
17th army corps-wbicb belong to Gen. Sherman’s
army—bad been ordered to Cairo, and would thence
proceed to Join Gen. Sherman at Chattanooga.
These two corps do mot at present number 1 over
seven to eight thousand men in the aggregate, a
large number of regiments belonging to tQcm being
North on The remainder of the army
of necessity must leave their present-positron
soon, as there are no snpplles where it is located,'
ard the river is falling very rapidly.
The. cavalry, which numbered about 5,800 .men,
lost their wagon and ammunition trains, and as
slated above, at least IJXW men and horses.; The
largest share of the loss is pretty certainly, in pri<»-
onere., Gen. Leo was tn command of tbe cavalry,
hut himself cscapcdinjory,- • ■- ;
Onr informant says tbe officers universally throw .
the blame lor tbe disaster noon Gen. Banks. It is
said that he ordered Gen. Lee to attack the enemy
under any circumstances whenever be came np to ■
him; and that when Gen. Lee, meeting with’a se
vere repulse by overpowering nambers, sent'back--
for reinforcements, bat a single brigade was sent
up at a time,'and of course shared the fate of the
cavalry. Finally, Gen. Smith, with the 10th and
17tb army corps came np and tbe onslaught of the
enemy was checked, and finally repulsed.
Wc are loth to believe the responsibility pf tko
d'sastcr will rest entirely upon Gen. Banks until wo
shall receive more definite and accurate Informa
tion. > •
As Gen. Steele with his army'from Western Ar
kantas was at last accounts moving in tbe direction
of Shreveport, the.fame.destination Gem Banks
had m view, there-will be some anxlety.fclt, until
his safety Is assured.
We understand that the expedition was limited
to thirty-five days only, and that the time had
nearly or quite expired when we were so nnfortu
nntely defeated, and this accounts for the departure
of the IClh and 17th-Corps for Cairo, dispatches
having arrived from Gen. Sherman, by gunboat, at
Alexandria, about tbe time our informant left.
Gen. Ransom’s wound is a severe one, tbe hall
Laving passed directly through the knee and tshnt-'
tered the joint, it is feared the leg will have to bo
amputated, bat Knot, the Surgeon states, the knee
will Le stilt for life. •
From all accounts Ibst we receive there mmst
have been terrible mlsmannsement; somewhere.'
The army was struggling In detached regiments or.
brigades at Intervals of six or eight miles, through
a dense pine forest, a single narrow road through
which was the only communication, and this was -
blocked np with male teams and wagons of every
description, so' that all communications !were.
chokeu np, end the safety of onr guns was an im
possibility. 1
The result may be summed np as follows, loth as
wc arc to recognize it. In tbe first, or more prop*
crly second day’s fight, we were badly whipped,
and one Corps nearly cat to pieces. The next day
we held them in check with fresh troops and gained
a victory, ifit may be so called, repulsing the em>-‘
my, driving them three or four miles and taking
eight hundred prisoners, bat leaving ns to badly,
cut op that we were unable to follow op tbe advan
tage and obliged to fallback and return without
accomplishing the object of the expedition. ’ Zt was
100 truly a tntum futmtn,.
Id this connection we make the following ex-,
tract from a private letter written by Hngh’Wll- 1
son, a member ol the Mercantile Battery, who was
detailed to take care of Lieut Geo. Tbrobp, after hs
was wounded. After describing the stampede, and
the blocking np of tho road by wagons, H. W.
writes :
“ I soon saw there was no chance to get the Lieu
tenant ont that way, so I told the driver to go into
a email bye-road through the woods: followed this
until we came to a stream that ibeatnbnlsneo
could not cross?. Soon after we stopped, a com
pany of the Bth Missouri cavalry, passed na on the
retreat—about a hundred yards behind them was
tho rebel cavalry—so the ambulance was between
two fires. The doctor who was along, told me to
take sare ol myself as Tbroop could not live. I
b%d thought to be captured with Urn, so that I
could take care of him, bn*, when the doctor said
he couldn't live, I thought I might save myself. As
1 was getting out of the ambulance, one horse was
shdt. Tbroop said to me; "Hugh 1 raise my bead
up, and then ran and save yourself; lam dying
and you can do mo no good.” I jerked oQ my
Jacket, rnd put It under his head, and started for
the rear. Between me and the road was a small,
brook, and tbc rebel cavalry weio so close, that I
thought 1 could cot escape without being so'
I jumped- Into tbc creek, and cot behind
the bank, till the rebels should come up
and take me, bat Providence had written it other
wise, for soon as 1 got down, I heard tho Captain'
of cavalry soy, "Rally, men. and give them one,”
They immediately formed a line, and as tho rcbep
came up they poured a volley nt them, over toj
head, i looked over tbc bank to see the etTcct, and'
1 paw the reha taking back. ItboouUt “now la
your chance,” so I started for the road, where I -
found our boys unhitching to save the horses. I
believe I have not told yon'how Geo Thoop was
wounded. . A shell passed across his bowels and
cut the bottom of his vest, but did not leave any
mark on his skin; but when I left him there was a
lump on bis side half as big as his headvcaused by
infernal bleeding. He may possibly live, but 1
think under the circumstances it is cxtruly doabt

[From the Peoria Transcript.] , • ,
Again Peoria is called upon to monrn the
loss of another of her gallant eons. Lieut.'
CoLXeandcr R. Webb, of the 77th Illinois,
bos fallen a sacrifice to this nnholy rebellion. *
Be fell while gallantly leading his men in
pursuit of the enemy, previous"to, the disas
trous rout later in the day.
Lieut. Col. Webb was bom in Berkshire
county, Mass. lie-came to Illinois in 1857,
and for a year or so was connected editorial
ly ■with the Waukegan Gnzftte, In 1553, he
accompanied the late N. C. Geer to Peoria —
Mr. Geer purchasing the Transcript, aud Col.
Webb becoming its editor. He remained in
this capacity until 1859, when be entered the
ofilce of Judge Williamson os a * student at
law. In ISCO ho was admitted to thebaiy
and continued the practice of law until the*
77th Was organized. He raised a company
for this regiment, and upon its organization
was chosen Lieutenant Colonel. He accom
panied the regiment through nearly Us entire
career in the field, was with it at Arkan
sas Post and the memorable Vicksburg cam
paign. When the regiment went to New Or
leans, being reduced by disease, Got Webb
for a time was out on detached service
having charge of the convalescent camp in
that city. .
In June, 1833, Col Wfibb vrzi married to
. Virginia, eldest daughter of Charles Ballance,
Esq., of this city, who returned only a few
weeks ago from New Orleans, where she has
been spending a portion - of the past winter
with ber hnsband. The,-blow has been a sad
and terrible one to her. It is Bal'd that she
bos been haunted with a presentiment of evil
for some days, andwhen the first news of the
battle reached here, declared that her hus
band was killed. Her anguish when the sad
truth was imparled to her, was truly heart
rending. The sympathies of an entire com
munity will go out to the widowed one.

In the open market, as against <&3soc P -n, a few
