Chicago tribune.
The present duty of this people is to fill
the ranks for the One Hundred dats ser
vice. From all parts of the field of war
come evidences that the great work of the
campaign has begun, and we must confess,
iu the lesser Instances already recorded, with
mo very happy auspices. We have abundant
evidences that the enemy were nevermore
numerous or determined. We cannot
afford the loss of a single day In putting into
the field for temporary pressing service the
Troops tendered the Government by the loyal
West. The earnest and eloquent appeal of
Gov. Yates to the loyal people of the Prairie
State enforces the warnings already uttered.
In two weeks time the twenty thousand of
Illinois should be ready to march. The arms
are ready. Let the rally of the people com
mence In earnest to-day. Our grand
armies now striking home on the
heart of the rebel territory will deserve suc
cess bv their valor, and we believe will grasp
si great victory, but we shall be treacherous
to our soldiers if wc hold back from support
ing them; shall be false to the cause if we
make not ready to repair all possible disaster.
Fathers, brothers, eons, men and youth of the
Republic, the work that is yours to
<lo to-day is fraught with the interest* and
destinies of millions. Our dispatches of yes
terday tell us how well and widely in the
loyal West the work has been begun. Let it
not pause nor falter until all these new mili
tary organizations are filled up and sent for
v ard to the field.
Our Cairo dispatches at a late hour give us
* budget of exciting news from the Lower
Mississippi. Affairs in Arkansas have an un
satisfactory look, and General Steele evident
ly bad a narrow escape from destruction.
Admiral Porter whose chief exertions of
late have been given to cotton operatigns in
'Western Louisiana, where singularly enough
lie made nai>al prizes of large amounts of the
ffocculcnt staple collected from plantations
for and wide, has failed in business, and hav
ing consigned a large amount of cotton to
Cairo for sale, he has now consigned a good
share of Red River fleet to destruction. Tes
terdaj's dispatches gives us the unfortunate
particulars of the fate of the vessels
left in peril hy the low water,
and now blown up to avoid their
fulling into the hands o! the enemy. It was
doubtless necessary at last, but it forms no
justifiable sequence to the situation antece
dent to this mad cotton hunt for prize mon
<J. Altogether a very pretty job Admiral
Porter has made of it His whole manage
ment on the Mississippi has been a failure,
a- d fertile in noth ng but windy dispatches
to tell the people what Admiral Porter has
looked on to see somebody else do. Prob
ably Admiral Porter will this time be willing
to stand back and let somebody else write
Lis dispatches.
The campaign of 18M has began, and on a
grander scale than ever before. We shall
have heavier battles. Wc shall win telling
victories or experience grave disasters.
There will be no midway result. The col
lision will be between veteran armies, im
mense in numbers and determined in spirit.
Let the people be ready to stand by and
steady the Government in this hour.' And
let ns beseech the Government that the mad'
folly of feeding the people on lying dispatch
es may not again be resorted to. Ho v liber
ally it has disgraced onr war annals in for
mer campaigns, a single instance elswhcre
'drawn out shows. Let there be no more of
it. The people will not object when a seal
Is pnt upon the transmission of war news,
for some temporary purpose, for silence it
celf is a warning. “No news is not good
news” when onr armies arc afield. If
-Grant is defeated in Virginia the fact
'Cannot one moment too soon reach the
loyal homes of the people. Let the tidings
-of the disaster be sped through the North as
fast as electricity can bear it, and a nation
will rise to arms, even as it has not done yet,
to moke war the sole business of onr whole
people until the rebellion is crashed. The
question “whethcritis ever right to deceive,’*
still an open one in the debating societies, and
not even inlly closed by Mrs. Opie, finds no
defense for the practice, when it withholds a
knowledge of’danger from the very ones
whose vigorous action can alone avert it Let
•ns have the whole truth as fast as developed
in our present army movements. Victory we
are already prepared to celebrate. Defeat we
cannot too soon be advised of, if it beliil ns.
The name of William Butler, of Spring
field, late State Treasurer of Illinois, is again
mentioned in unflattering connection with
the cotton permits. Oar readers will re
member that an Imputation of the same kind
was cast upon him In a letter In onr own col
umns, some months ago, and called out from
Lim a prompt aud iudignaut deniiL Appa
rently it comes now in a slupewherein, how
ever innocent he may be, Mr. Butler is on
his defence before the people, and he can
only be placed right before tho people by a
■careful and thorough investigation which
shall establish his innocence. None will be
miore willing to record it than ourselves.
We publish elsewhere to-day the conven
tion between Louis Napoleon and Maximilian
ia regard to the affairs of Mexico. It is
sorted that the French troops shall speedily
l>c reduced to 20,000 men, and that these
shall evacuate Mexico entirely as soon as
.Maximilian can organize his own army. Tho
fonign legion in the service of France shall,
Low ever, remain in Mexico for six years, but
on the withdrawal of the other troops It
.shall go Into the service of the Empire. The
French commanders arc not to interfere with
the Mexican Administration. The two
monthly transport service between France
:md Vera Cruz, so long as necessarily main
tained, shall be paid for by Mexico, The in
-demuily to'bc paid to France is 270,000,000
ijv, and for the purpose of paying this ohli
-.ration Mexico shall pay 25,000,000 fr. In specie
xiunuolly. A mixed commission is also pro
vided for the settlement of claims for wrongs
done to Frenchmen, and for these wrongs
the Mexican Government is to make indem
nity. It would seem as if Louis Napoleon
had made a fair speculation of his Mexican
expedition. If Maximilian should , fail to
pay, he can foreclose again and appoint a
new “ receiver’’ for the distracted Empire.

note in order to flank Lee. Be also states that it

SPBiscnru), HI., May G, 1861.
1 send you a short and eloquent appeal of the
Governor to the loyal press of the Stale and an or
der from the Adjutant General in relation to the
new troops. The greatest activity begins to mani
fest itself now that the great need of these troops
is felt, and everything is being done by the mllitaty
authorities here to raise them. The Adjutant Gen
eral will leave here the first of next week to basted
the organization of these troops.
State of Illinois, 1
Executive Department, }-
Springfield, May 6, 1861.J
To the Loyal Press of Illinois:
Important dispatches from Washington, just re
ceived, constrain me again to appeal to the loyal
people of the Slate to promptly respond to tho late
call of the President for £O,OOO volunteers for one
hundred days* service, and to invoke your power
ful influence inaioasing the people to immediate
action. This is the more necessary because of tho
treasonable efforts of the disloyal press of the
State to discourage enlistments, and thus prevent
enr veteran regiments, now doing garrison daty,
from being relieved by these new troops, and tak
ing the front with Gen. Grant in the great cam
paign which he has just commenced.
There are now on file In the office of tho Adju
tant General applications for SOO companies which
have been authorized to bo raised, aud it is proba
ble that ten thousand volunteers have already en
listed; but only nine days now remain for raising
the balance, and tbe greatest activity is necessary
to complete oor quota. Thus troops art wanted
immediately. I submit these facts to the loyal
people ol the State. Tbe crisis Is upon ns. I con
fidently await the response.
Tbe policy adopted and the plan for raiding and
organizing these troops will be found in the ac
companying’order of tho Adjutant General.

resolution, sold that the majority of tne commit
tee had, aflera review of all the testimony, come
to the conclusion that there was Interference in the
election by a portion of the armed militia of Mis
souri, and to eoch an extent directed against the
Mr. UPSON, of Mich., a member of the Commit
tee on Elections, made a speech, sustaining the
views or the minority, namely, that Mr. Loan Is
entitled to retain his seat He maintained from the
testimony that there was nothing to show that In
toe districts especially named there was anything
to work to thcprejudice of tho contestants.
Mr. BMITHEEB, of Del., of the minority of the
Committee, argued from the evidence, that with
°J J wo the election was conducted
? , I“mess, and that tho inferior officers man!-

™ S f .S?. e J? b,lc »'"• n » claimed that Mr. Loan
was entitled to retain his seat.
Mr. DAWE9, of Mass., spoke of tho dot? of
keeping treason away from tbe ballot-box. as
tbreogh this, owing to onr peculiar Institutions
Jbc government might be injured In its vital part.
The Executive thould not only keep treason away,
but give Instructions against dlctatingandcontrol
ling more or lees the result of any election. The
House owed it to themselves to accept the condi
tion of things now exhibited, and see that no par
ties came here unless with the free voice of the
people, and to accept tbe fact as shown by tho tes
timony In this case, that there had-been no valid
- election. He could not see bow any Massachu
setts mns could reconcile it to his conscience to
give a vote here in tho affirmative of the position
occupied bv tbe minority of the committee.
Mr. ELLIOTT, of Mass., was at a loss to know
why his colleague had directed this remark to him,
but he would say he had carefully come to the con
clusion of voting for the sitting member.
Mr. DAYIB, oi Md., wished to kuow what tbe
judgement of tho people of Massachusetts had to
do wiih the decision or the question here.
Mr. Davis resuming said he had alluded to Dela
ware and Maryland without designing any offence,
Gl» friend from Maryland coold not be expected to
see the same way as others on this question. If
entire psace prevailed in Maryland, and If no per
sons were cooped up there to bo voters at elections
be must not assume that in Massachusetts and
Vermont nopcaco prevailed, that elections were
net free, and that voter? are cooped up. His
mends from Delaware and Maryland mast be char
itable and excuse him if he could not come to the
same conclusion.
51 r, SMITHERS. of Del., dented that he had Im
pnened the voting in Massachusetts.
3Jr. WHALEY, of West Vo., said the gentleman
usd opposed the admission to scats r.f members
south of Moron and Dixon's line. Was that the
policy ? If so, he bad better join the gentlemen
from Ol i'> and Mas & achni*ctt?,viz: Mr. Long and Mr.
Elliott. Did the gentleman want to have hlmaeli
placed on the McClellan ticket for Vice President ?
Mr. DAWES, of Mae?., replied if he could not
succeed by more votes than the gentleman repre
sented tn the last Congress, it was not desirable to
have him on any ticket.
