DEAIH OF BOV. JOSHUA B. GID-
DINGS,
The telegraph announces the death of the
Nestor of American statesmen,* the Hoo.
JoshvaßecdGiddlngs. He died*on Friday
•■evening at Montreal, of heart disease, at
chc ilpc age of sixty-nlnc*. He was born
at Athens, Bradford county. Penn., Oct. C,
1785. 'When he was ten years of age his pa
rents emigrated to Ashtabula county, Ohio,
and were among the first settlers in that
part of Ike Western Reserve. When less
than seventeen years of age he cnl sted as a
soldier, and_ participated in two battles with
the Indians. He commenced the study of
Ibc law in 1817. and was admitted to practice'
nl6£o. -
In 3S2C Lcwas chosen a representative to
Hie State legislature, and, after serving one
term, declined a re-election, and devoted
himself to-Ids profession until 1883, when
he was elected to Congress' /as. the
successor of Hon. Elisha Whittlesey. From
a boy, inflexibly opposed to - the -gigantic
evil of tlaveiy, he at once took his place by
the eldc of John Quincy ACairis as a support
er of the right of petition, and became one of
the leading cham pi on fi *o f the abolition of the
“institution” In ISC9 the
rult b prevented bis speaking, but in 1811. in
a speech upcm the Florida war, he gave ex
prefsion to Us feelings. The celebrated
Creole cesc, familiar to our readers, soon
came up, and again he attacked the institu
tion in a scrlis of resolutions. The slave
drivers and northern doughfaces censured
him; whereupon he resigned his scat and call
ed upon bis constitutcnls to pass judgment
upon his case, which they did by re-electing
him by an immense majority. He resumed
bit 1 scut May 5,1841, and held It until Marsh
4 ,1859, making Lis whole period of service
tv. cnlj-one years. During lb it time Lc did
yeoman service In the great struggle svlth
slavery. In IS-IO he made an elaborate speech
contending that men could not be property
The same year he defeated a provision in the
California Coast bill legalizing the. slave
trade between the Atlantic and the Pacific.
In the Oregon question and the Armistad
case, his course is familiar. He refused to
vote for Taylor on anti-slavery grounds. He
violently opposed the Compromise measures
of 1850, and was conspicuous *in the debales
upon the repeal of tbe Missouri Compromise
and the Kansas difficulties. ' *
At tbc Um£ of his death ho was consul at
Montreal. A sudden dcccas: has not been
unexpected by his friends, for death had
threatened him often before and at the very
citadel eft life. On May 8, 18T»0, wfille ad
dressing the House, he cudccly tell to the
floor in a stale of unconsciousness, from
which, lie soon revived, though in
a elate of great • weakness. On Jan
uary 17, ISSS, lie fell again in
the same way -and for come minutes
cupi'CEtd to he dead. Atlast death has
overtaken him, efu r a life conscientiously
spentin a flcrcc and uninterrupted reslstauce
to whut he deemed the sum of all iniquities.
Like Lovcjny, he knew no compromise with
Jl, or men whocneuined It. He did not wait
for it to come up, but went out to meet !L
In the very house tf its friends, uaawed by
lhe,w:owl6Uid thieits of the slave-drivers,
and enmoved by the jeers of donghfaccs, or
entreaties of more timid friends, he applied
the lash without mercy. In the forum and
on the slump, with written and spoken word,
at til times and In all. places, slavery found
In him an implacable foe. The patriarch of
the Bouse, for many years, he administered
Itc oath to some of the very men who h%ve
violated It, and the slave drivers and women
whlppcrs were compelled to bare the head
and raltc the hand befjre the Abolitionist.
It was a hitler pill for them, and one which
they often found repeated la his philippics
against them and their traffic. Ec bos lived
to see the Iniquity he fought so long nearly
abolished, cud has been gathered to bis
lathers, foil of years and of honor.
GOV, KIiTICOrB*
Gov. Seymour of New York has directed
hie District Attorney, Ball, to commence a
’prosecution against .the Federal officers who
seized the World and Journal of Commerce
newspapers and suspended their publication
for three days, in consequence of their pub
lishing the proclamation lorgcry, and thereat
all the Copperheads rejoice greatly, thinking
that a collision between the State authorities
of New York and those of the Federal Gov
ernment would tea very beneficial thing for
the rebels. .And that Is the motive at the
bottom of the Governor's action. The rea
sons which he publicly sets forth are intend
ed to humbug the crowd. It is sympathy
for the rebellion that’ causes him to prose- j
cutcthe officers of the Federal Government,
and it is sympathy with the rebels that causes j
the Cope to egg him’on.
Bujqiose the World and Jonr:t£L of Cx/i
--mfret hod been guilty of perpetrating the
forgery, would he, in snch case, have prose
cuted on account of their seizure? Would
Jt not have been the duty of the Gove ramjet
to have seized them ? - But they were guilty
primafadt; they were caught in the very a:t
of printing • and circulating the’ forgery.
When It was shown that they were not in
tentionally guilty, bat had been imposed
upon, they were released from the custody of
the officers. The utmost they can claim is
damage lor the detention of their Issuct.
Calling the profits of the 7TLr?<f slooper day,
and incidental losses from delay another
SIOO per day, the domaec to the TTViV would
be about SCOO for tbc three Leys; the damage
sustained -by- the Journal uf Commerce
was probably half as much, as its
circulation is smaU. The total bill of daxase
to the two concerns is probably le*s than
SI,GOO. But this is offset, and more than mode
good, by the notoriety gu'md, and the '‘mar
tyrdom” achieved, as more copies will bfi
sold in consequence cf the seizure and the
gratuitous advertising given them. In a pe
cuniary j olnt of view they have lost no
money, but have made by it. Politically they
arc not injured, because they happen to be,
innocent of the crime. They stand folly as
high in the eyes of the Copperheads as bt-lbrc.
They have not-been hurt, or damaged in
purse or reputation, one particle.
Gov. Seymour seems to act on the hypoth
esis that the Notional Government has no
rights which Slate officers arc bound to re
6j. cct; and that the laws and authority of the
United States Government are not in opera
tion in the Stale of New York. He, in ef
fect, bolds that the people of New «York are
not citizens of thcNational Government, nor
responsible to it, nor subject to Iteaulhority;
and that his State Is a foreign and indepen
dent country, as much so as Cana la or Great
Britain. But 'before he gets through with
his prosecution he will discover that New
York belongs to the United States, and.that
• its inhabitants are dlrccUy responsible to the
Federal authorities, and liable to arrest,
and their property to seizure by ..thtf.
officers of the Federal Government ior of
fenses committed against that Government,
The Federal Government In not required
to apply to State officials to punish -citizens
for committing crimes against It, but pro
ceeds Independently and by virtue of Its high
• national'sovereignty^to protect itself, punish
the guilty and vindicate its authority. Gov.
Seymour is a disciple of the CHUonn heresy
of State Sovereignty and National Subordi
nation. He would m-nrp functions .not be
longing to States, and trample down and nul
lify the Federal Government. So fir as be
has gone, he follows in the footsteps of the
rebels, tied if he pushes his orders to tbclr
extreme limit, he will find rebellion 'aud se
cession as their sequence. Is that what he
Is after? If not, he would do well to stop
where he Is.
THE CinVAl3E¥ \VB£PP£Z> BT
4 *Jf JCrtiEBS.”
Major General Fitz Hugh Lee—name thrice
redolent cl chivalry—fragrant with the aro
ma of aristocracy—exquisitely expressive of
|hemwede laeierne, ol the inner circle of
ibC affr of Virginia's First Families—who
rflv clt in the holy of holies ol Caucasian an
periority—Fitz Hugh Leo has been whipped
—laid out —brought to grief—made to ske
daddle by American citizens of African de
scent—in shortly colored Federal soldiers—
‘•not to put to fine a point upon it,” by nig
gers—by runaway slaves, by the b»zy, thrift- •
Ices, improvident “ nigs,” Language if In
adequate to the expression of ench a phe
nomenon. On the one side, we have the
Virginia aristocrat condescending, and eo
far foregoing his chivalrous prejudices and
■early Christian education, as to be willing
lor the first time, to whip a “nigger” with
out first having lilm disarmed, hand-cuffed,
and his naked hide exposed by menials to
the chivalrous lash. Kay, he is willing to
whip the “nigger** armed, uniformed and en
trenched.' Bnt there came the rub. The
transition from whipping negroes that had '
first been tied and stripped for the purpose, {
to whipping negroes armed and equipped j
for fighting involved a new contingency, I
viz: That the “niggers” might whip him. !
Kow Major Gen. Fltz Hugh Lee crone dt la
ertmty &c., under these embarrassing cir
cumstances, bethought him of the Chinese
mode •of fighting; which is first to make
Tezy ugly laces, if that tolls, in subduing the
enemy, to make a very loud noise, and in
of the possible failure of both these
maneuvers, to make a very great stink, The
eye, the ear, and the nostril being thus con
temporaneously assailed, if the enemy failto
' capitulate it must be from entire lack of
sense.
In pursuance ol these tactics, General Lee
drew out Ills lorceiin .'nil array; which was
equivalent to making a very ugly lace. He
then sent word to the “niggers” that his
forces were ample to compel a surrender,,
end that resistance would he hopeless. This
was the eppearanoe of the very loud noise.
, Be then informed the “ niggers” that should !
I they give up “whipped” without proving !
! ihtmctlvcs good soldiers, he would treat j
| tLtin ns prisoners of war; hut should they ;
! cempcl him to fight them, he should in sub- i
j stance suffer them all to he massacred. This 1
; corresponded to the Chinese policy of'
“thirdly—a great stink.” It faded, however, |
4.0r the socly garrison orJyresponded “We’U
try th*t.” It was tried accordingly. They ;
rcjulscd the chivalry. They defeated the j
chivalry, and so the chivalry, after having
shown that their cruelty was only mitigated
by their Weakness, adopted the Chlna
. _xn.n’s hivorlto and - last movement; They
rbltcttcd. Verily, which are the barbarians
and which arc the chivplry ?
tspEsn Voorhces, .of .Indiana, made a,
renting,- canting’, Copperhead harangue in
. Congms, the other day, and among other
-tiling? eald, “The black man lias his champi
ons here; but bc(Yoorhees) spoke- in this
hall as the friend of the neglected 'white
man.” • ■ *
This is transparent demagoguism, and
.shallow crap*trap, but it is a fair average
specimen of Copperhead logic. The particu
lar “ncglccfed and forgotten, while man” for
whom Mr. Yoorhees spoke, he does not spe
cif). It was the “neglected and forgotten”
slaveholder—neelcd-cd - and forgotten in the
Washington Congress only because be pre
ferred to .be represented ut Richmond instead.
He Lee made hie bed, let him lie in it; with
Richmond let him stand or falh Since he
spurned being represented in our Congress,
long may he continue to bo neglected and
forgotten there. ,
The black man's freedom has its champi
onAhcre, as everywhere.* The black man's
slavery had its champions there, bat they
have adjourned to. Richmond. . With Rich
mond let them stand or tali Why must
Voorhccs champion those who despise his
chcm; ionriiip ? Why pettifog without pay
lac cateof aclicntwhorefusestocomcwlth?
in the jurisdiction, or abide by the decision
of the tribunal? * .
V.tat conflict is there between the rights
of black men and white, where both are free?
Where is the supposed antagonism? Will'
the white man suffer from giving the blacb
men compensation for his work? Is it,ne
cessary to the manhood of the white to crush
-*tbe black to the level of the beast? Can not
the white m»n live except from the unpaid
labor of the black?. Is it not high time that
such insulting aspersions on the white man's
cs, abilities ceased to be uttered in Congress?
And is it not high time that such miserable
charlatans as Toorhees were retired from
Congress ? He is a shame and disgrace to the
noble and loj al free labor people of Indiana.

Atlanta.
The situation of Atlanta Is elevated, and
t.O doubt Johnston has fortified the position,
since it commands by its railroad connections
lie\holc intcijor of the State of Georgia.
It is a'flcuiishlng town, laid out in 1545. It
had, In 1850,2,572 inhabitants, and in ISGO,
Four of the principal railroads of.the
Stutc form a junction here, and as tin center
of the cotton and grain trade, it is also the
center of military operations in the Cotton
States. Eastward it has-the Georgia Rail
road, extending to Augusta on the Savannah

and Savannah; and eonthwestward the La
grange Railroad goes to West Point, seventy
two miles dieb nt, on the Alabama frontier.*
Atlanta is 101 miles northwest of Macon,.and
171 miles west of Augusta; ’ As Sherman was
icslirg two days r.t Kingston with his army,
to replenish hit stores and send back to Chat
tanooga the wounded and disabled men, and

/ THE POTOMAC AP.MT—THE SITUATION.
At this distance from the army it is Rnpos
sihle to always give a perfectly correct view
of the situation, on account of the rapid
chargee of position of both armies, and also
on'account of the errors into which corres
pondents, and even military men from the
field, arc apt to fall. In detailing movements.-
Thus, In my lust. I ( stated that Lee, having
discovered that Gen. Grant was Intending to
make a flankmovement, fell back some time
before the latter had path's army in motion,
and thereby gained a new defensive position,
probably on tbe North Later and
more reliable news from the front, in the
meantime, has led me to change .my.views..
Ttwas'GciCGraat wholiadthe start of Lee,
and by a masterly feint led the latter to be
lieve he was retreating on bis base, that is,
jn the direction of Fredericksburg. To_en
..courage eneb on ldca;~our troops' allowed
seme useless■ caissons, wagons, etc., to re
main in front of Lee’s position, while, the
army marched off. to the left, toward Qul
Hoy’s Station and Bowling Green. It
was necessary to Gen. Grant to have
some hours the start .of Gca. Lee, as
we had, to move on the circumference of a.
circle, while the rebel General could move in
a straight Hue, intersecting Its centre. ' Lee;
too lute, found out his mistake and immedi
ately set off in hot haste to intercept the
Union army.' His advance rgn-ird probably
it was which came up with our advance near
•Jericho Ford, a*point on the North Anua
about seven miles castof Beaver Dam, on the
Virginia Central Railroad. Here tbe rebels,
attacked c?nr troops iu strong force, but were
repulsed with great loss by 'portions ol the
sth and Ctb corps. Grant would have reach
ed this point much sooner, bat it must be re
membered that he is marching through a hos
tile country, and thus complied to move in
coin; act force, in order to have his troops
well in baud, und readf to repel any attack
in force of tbe enemy. There is nodoubt bat
thnt the rebels supposed . Gen Grant hacTre
treated, for tbe Richmond papers so state.
L'-ilcrnews from Gee. Grant states that Lea
had fallen buck from the North Anna and that
onrforccs wire In pursuit This would un
cover the Virginia Central Railr.cad, and give
ns the control of it from Hanover Junction
to Gordonsvllle, a very important matter, as
Gordoiicvllle has always been a leading depot
of supplies to the rebels. The next defensive
line of the rebels is the- South Anna
and Fanmuky; but tbe Hank movement
of G«nt-ral Grant appears to have given
bim the control of the rrcdcrlckHburg;and
Richmond railroad, the rebels being several
milis to the westward*of It Tuis must
prove a grea* loss and a source ot much cm-
Dsnossment to Lee, and will ala Gen. Grant
very materially in bis future operations. He
may now put lhat road iu running order to
Fredericksburg, or select any other base on
the Rappahannock (say Port Royal, or Ur
bane), below Fredericksburg, which he may
think proper. Further news from the army
isTlccktd fer with gnat interest, as at unj
moment another desperate and bloody bkitlc
may take.piece between tbe contending ar
mies. It must, be remembered, bo'ever,
that as Lee approaches Richmond with bis
army comparatively intact, ha caa mass his
troeps more effectively, by drawing those un
der Beauregard, Breckinridge and others, to
his for the purpose of striking a
heavy blow, and thcareturning them to their
former positions.
In tbe meantime, the hundred day troops
ere coming lorward hero in large numbers.
They arc generally placed iu the fortidcitipfis
i.ruiind tic diy, thus relieving a large force
of veteran troops, who are immediately dis
patched to *hc front. So that the process of
concentration goes forward steadily and if
Lee can move, :;o can Grant, and 11 is easily
win that the resources of the latter are far
more ample than those of the former. If
Gin. Butler has been repulsed, he neverthe
less k- cp? a large rebel force fully employed
in defending the" south side of Richmond.
WHAT TOE UEIiEL miSONESS'SIT.
The rebel prisoners taken In the last battles
say that those battles wcro.thc most severe
of-thc war; that our troops nev?r before
fought so well, marching up to the rebel en
trenchments without faltering. . Tney think
Lee a veiy great general, but tint he has met
his match in Gen. Grant. They add that this
canij nign wiU close the war; for they say
that if Gronris defeated we will give It up.
and that if Lee Is defeated they Will give It
up, When they are told that if wc are de
feated, we will reinforce ana try It again,
they shake thtlr heads incredulously.
TOUCE3JT or OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS.
Mr. Arnold has introduced a resolution,
that the Jndicicry Committee inquire into the
expediency ol reporting a bill for the pun
ishment ol forgery ol official documents.
There is now no existing United States stat
ute for the punishment of such cases of
forgery as that of the use of the names of-the
President and Secretary of Stale in tho-case
of tic late bogus proclamation. Still the
evil cficcts of snch a forgery aredneompira
bly greater than those caused by the ordinary
forgery of a person's signature by which
money is feloniously obtained. $

well Informed sources it appears that, elibi-r
tjy disease or by accident not less than two
thousand men have been. detached or have
deserted from Price’s onny during the lust
thirty days, aud are wending their war back
to Missouri with arms in their hands with
mischievous intent Several squads of
thirty or forty have been heard from all the
way from the Aruansas Hue to the Missouri
river/ A few days ago our cavalry from
Fort Scott started In pursuit and overhauled
one gang near the Grand river, in IJeory
county, scattering them and killing abonfc
ten of the party, it was feared at Sedalia on
Monday morning that the threats of guer
illas to seek Warsaw, in Benton county,
•would be carried into effect. Other signs
clearly point to the danger that that section
is< in'concerning these rebel raids. Last
year Shelby with twelve hundred men
burned a big bridge on the Pacific Railroad
thirty miles from Jefferson City, and cap
tured Boonvillc, in the* heart of the State.
Gen. Curtis-Is fearful that the people
of Kansas will have much trouble with bush
whackers Ibis season; but Kansas bos this
?advantage over Missouri; The rebels do not
know the roads and hiding places so well as
in Missouri, and cannot so effectually defy
pursuit.
The war west of the Mississippi has ceased
to be waged north of the Arkansas lor mili
tary supremacy or the conquest of territory,
but has degenerated into a mere passion for
plunder. This is the auimdfc of Marmaduke’s
and Shelby’s guerillas, and it Is this passion
that bids them on to Missouri. To accom
plish anything In the plunder line worth
mentioning, these wretches must penetrate
North Missouri, as that section contains not
only the bulk of the population, but the re
maining wealth of the State. It also con
tains tbslarrcst proportion of secessionists in
Missouri, who will in reality be the greatest
sufferers jrom a rebel mid.
Gen. Fisk reports from St. Joseph that
there is increasing boldness on. the port of
bushwhackers around that city, and that con
siderable alarm exists lest the rebfels come
into the Slate in force and attack that place.
The evil effects of the Pawpaw misrule
in the Northwest Is beginning to be ■ felt.
Immediately after the removal of Gen. Guitar,
orders were Issued by Gen. Rosecrans to dis
band and disarm the Pawpaws. -It was,
soon ascertained that the original dlatnbu
-1 tion of arms to the Pawpaws was such an
extraordinary loose proceeding that there
was no clue to the names of those who baa
received guns and cartridges.- The way it
was done was this: Acompauy of Pawpaws
‘was detailed to escort several wagon loads
of muskets around the country and give a
musket to every man who claimed to be a
Pawpaw. Consequently the. return r of
muskets is sloW, and will never bo finished.
The loyal men have now organized a mill
..tia regiment, but Got. Hall refuses to com
mission their elected Colonel, and is trying
to impose a CoL Singleton"upon them, who
la accused of •disloyalty. As It has been
proven that many of the Pawpaws were
former members of Price’s army, the dls
' loyally of the whole concern Is a disgrace to.
every State officer who.had anything to do
wlthdt. .

more at Jefferson-City. The life of the
Kadi cal parly os a State organization depends
upon the action of the Radical Convention
at Jefferson City to-day. The Convention U
terribly agitated hy the question of sending
delegates to the Baltimore Convention, As
n ■ rule the American Radicals favor
the recognition of. the-..; 'Baltimore
Convention, while the .Germans, as a class,
desire to ignore it. There" Is a third party
straggling to preserve harmony, and to pre
vent a split In case delegates were elected to
Baltimore. The German Radicals are furious
over this supposed concession to.tbcClay
: bants, andwlth great dlfflcaltja'e restrained
from throwing the party into confusion by
*tbeir violent threats and teachings. If the
.nomination of Mr. Lincoln were doubtful or
a closely contested point, the Missouri Radi
cals would be unanimous dor sending dele-.,
gates to Baltimore; bpt they think that .Lin
coln is bound to be nominated, and opposing
him for his Missouri policy, they will not
corfinit the party to his support in advance.
' "The next Governor of Missouri will be
nominated to day crtoiaorrow.afc Jefferson •
City, for whoever the Radicals nominate will
be elected beyond a doubt. The Clayhinks
and Copperheads'are divjded r and will each
support different' candidate's. The.Radical
nomination, then, is the all important point.
Evidently ttc contest is between Col. Thos. •
C. Fletcher and Charles D Drake; either of
whom the Radicals will support willingly.'
Mr. Drake Is the intellectual superior of the
Colonel, bnt the latter h«s an unblemished
record of several years* devotion to Radical
principles in the southeast .portion of the
Slate, where it was personally dangerous to
be anything hut a pro slavery bigot. The
Germans ‘ enthusiastically support • Col.
Fletcher, and the chances *are now in his fa
vor.
Considerable, merriment bas been occa
sioned'here oo account ;of the venom dis
played Ly the Copperheads because the name
anil battles of that "rent humbtur, George B.
McClellan, were cot honored with a plo.ee la
the dccoratii EB or trimmings of our great
Sanitary Fair. The Copperheads- squirmed
awfully lor several days about it, and
finally threatened' not .to’ go near . the
fair- till McClellan’s name was put
np. Somebody wrote a communication
la the I)tv.ccrat suggesting that Benedict Ar
nold’s K-rvlcth previous “to turning traitor
were equally as deserviugas McClellan’s ser
vices before he threw himself into the arms
of the traitors. That caused another wrig
gling, find then some one of tlndr number
got a canvass with McClellan's name on It
end had it suspended over the jewelry de
partment. The McClellan men are beat now
on voting the sword on exhibition to the
young Kupoleon, and beating Ben Butler,
whom they arc afraid of Last night they
rushed in voles (nought© place McClellan
ahead, ned] wem angry and loud in their de
nunciation of Ben Butler, .who has hereto
fore steadily h d McClellan many votes.
The Sanitary Fair Is a big success. The re
cdplß from thh Fair proper the first week
were $75,C00, and if the second wed: does as
well the goods left unsold will still yield
££O,CCO qtorc. There is an immense amount
of staple merchandize such as llour r tobacco,
stover, tin-ware, hardware, wooden ware,
agricultural implements, &c., which will find
b reedy sale after tb* Fair closes. The cash
donations approximate SCCO,CO0 —so that

Gen. Steele’s Dlsantrons Campaign.
[Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune,]
Httlb Rock, May 20,1861.
Gen. Steele has returned to this city with a
demoralized army. The campaign ■ culmi
nated in disaster. The retreat from Camden
may be called a rout The morale of a splen
did organization Is broken. -
s .The troops of this department -had rarely
met with reverses. Under Herron and Blunt
they had long ago penetrated into Arkansas,
and at Prairie Grove wrested a victory from
a superior foe, even at a hazardous venture.
Success followed an audacity bald as it was
pertinacious.^.Northwest Arkansas devel
oped n strong Union sentiment. There were
organized .the first Arkansas-regiments.
The strength of the enemy having been
broken, it was easy for Steele to reach Little
.Rock. There was no hard fighting;
qnirtd the exercise of no consummate strat
egy, no brilliant tactics. In the present army
there'were no*; a few veterans. * It was well
appointed and ‘confident.. The -failure was
■ therefore'unexpected. - - '
'' We do not think Bank's to any considerable
extent responsible for the disaster of Steele.
T«c, hqfl Wbeen successful, Price had fallen ;
back rapidly end not ventured an attack. He
>cs iht enemy Steele-had before him. Before
retching Camden Steele might have attacked
and defeated him The army wished it. We
believe U;an unwise timidity that “drewnp”
the army In line of battle and waited an on
set which it was not the enemy’s intention
to rr.oke. - -
•Price defeated, the rctrcatwonld have been
successful:.' Banks’. defeat emboldened Jiim,
Guerillas concentrated ’to assist. At every
point wes the army harassed. So closely
were we pressed, that it Is said Steele issued
the orders to destroy the trains.. Our loss in
transportation is great. It became a race for
our defences. Soldiers lost faith In tbclr
Commander, and though the command roach*,
ed Little Rock, It was not as an army. Its
effect is disheartening.
To the loyal element ot the Stale, It has
betna “bUierplll.” Guerillas swarm again,
and not unfrcquently Is Little Rock seized
with a panic. Grapevine intelligence circu
lates among the disloyal- The 44 Conserva
tives” are very sympathetic. Members ofthc
Legislature cm’i leave. Legislation becomes
somewhat difficult, *trd the confidence of the
y.co] lo in the stability of the Slate govern
ment is much impaired.
Missouri may welt fear another raid. The
Stolby raid ou a largo scale may be repeated
can tqIUV Refugees arc leiviug as
. usual—their “goods and chattels” in dilapi
dated wagons, dra*n by dilapidated oxen.
Cotton speculators arc not so hopefnl, and
the lessees of abandoned plantations, fear
catastrophes. „ ■ ,
Wcdq not wish to denounce Gen. Steele,
though we believe that a sagacious aud ener
getic commander wonld have avoided almost
the appearance of disaster. That it was a
disaster, the Idea of his train is of itself an
irresistible Inference. His friends (stronsrly
conservative) say little of his or condi
tion of his army. They speak of his bravery
r.n the field, ond the conspicuouo gallan
try” of his staff. Imperially is Col. Maoter,
chief of staff, and prime editorial supervisor
of tie Little Rock distinguished.

ThtfSencral Coherence of the Methodist Epis

isters, and nearly a million of members, mindful
cf their dntv os Christian citizens, takes tho earli
est opportunity to express to yon tho assurance of
the loialty of the Chnrch, her earnest, devotion to
the interests of the country, and her sympathy
with you in the great responsibilities of yonr high
positfon in this trying hoar. *
"Willi exultation we point to the record of our
Church as havingncvcr been tarnished by disloy
alty. She was the llret of tbc churches to express,
by a deputation cf her most distinguished minis
ters, the promise of enpport to tho Government in
the days of Washington. In her Articles of Re
ligion site bus cujoinod loyalty as a doty, and has
ever given to the Government her most decided
snjpcrt.
In the present struggle for the nation's life many
IhLCsnuas of her members, and a large number of
her ministers, have rushed to arms to maintain the
cause of God and humanity-. They have sealed
their devotion to their ciuutrv with their blood,
on every katileflrld t f this terrible war.
MTc regard tills terrible scourge now desolating
# our land, and wasting the nation's IIW, ns the re
sult cf a most unnatural, utterly unjustifiable re
bellion, involving the crime of treason against the
best ofhumnn governments, and eta against God.
It required our goveromert to submit to its own
dismemberment, and destruction, leaving It no al
ternativeimt to preserve its national Integrity by
the use of the national resources. If tho govern
ment had hided to use Us power to preserve tho
unity of the nation, and .maintain its authority, it
would have been Justly exposed to the wrath of
heaven, and to the reproach and scorn of the civil
ized world.
Onr earnest and constant prayer is, that this
cruel and wicked rebellion maybe speedily sup
pressed; and we pledge yon onr hearty co-opera
tion in all appropriate means to secure this oh-
1-ojal and hopeful in national adrenlty. In pros
perity thankfnl, wo must heartily congratulate you
on the glorious victories recently canted, and re
joice in the belief that our complete triumph Is
near.
We believe that onr national sorrows and calami
ties have resulted, in a great decree, from onr for
getiulpcssof God, und oppression of our fellow
men. Chastened by affliction, may thu nation
humhlv repent of bi-p airs, lay aside her hauchty
Sndu. honor .God in all future legislation, andren
er justice to nil who have been wronged.
Wc honor you (or your proclamations of liberty,
and rejoice in all the acts of the Government, de

Wo trust that when militerr usages and necessi

tutions, and the removal of wrongs sanctioned by
law, the occasion will be Improved, not merely to

the time may speedily tome when this shall be

The prayers of millions of Christians, with an
carnesmeea never manifested for rulers before,
duly ascend to Heaven that you may be endowed
with all needed wisdom and power. Actuated by
the sentiments of the loftiest and purest patriotism,
cur prayer shall be continually for the preserva

Fearful Snlclde.
We learn from Mr. Simma. beeper
ferrs at Niagara Falla, that on Friday morn
ing, abont 10 o’clock, a woman named Ben
der, threw heraelf into toe rapids immedi
ately abovetoe brink of the cataract on the
Canada elde, and was carried oyer the falls.
The 'deceased lived near the spot, and had
lor eomc time been partially
, ine It necessary on the part of the lamlly to
keep adose -watch npon her movements. A
few P ooments before too time Indicated she
was sitting qnietly in toe house knitting,and
being left alone for a few momenta, she
rushfdfrom the room, ran to the nver and
Snnged into the boiling, seething waters,
ft woiSd appear that the consciousness of
the unfortonale woman ittwned after ehe
entered the water, as she tossed her arms
wildly about and cried loudly fur assistance.
Ent of course she was beyond the reach of
human aid, and in a few moments was swe .>t
over iho*fall?. Up to Saturday evening no
traces of the body had been discovered Mrs.
Fender was about fifty years of Age and leaves
a family.— liutfeio C\ m. Ad*. May 23d.
Death,of t: Dunn Browne.* 5
C.*ptoin Samuel Flske; better known in the
literary world as 44 Dunn Browne,” died at
Fredericksburg, Virginia, oa Sunday, ot
wounds received in the battles of the Wil
derness. Every effort to save his life, within
the scope of human power,, was made, birt
in vain. His wife, brother, and sister.ware
present during his dying moments. Captain
Fiske was born in Shelburne, Mass. Ha
graduated ot Amherst College In.ISIS, and
was for some time a tutor Ui that institution.
Be subsequently visited Europe, and on his
return settled as a minister at Shelburne,
Connecticut, whence he entered the service,
going to the .field as a. lieutenant.
His gallantry soon won for blm'a captain’s
commission. He was' captured by the
rebels and was fbr some time a prisoner at
Riclmbtid. As a literary man,, among, the
meet striking of his efforts .was the transla
tion of “Escbeaburg’s Manual of Greek and
Rbmnn Antiquities, ’’ now used as a text
book in some of our'leading colleges. He
was for a long time a correspondent of the
Springfield M-puhlican, his letters over the
eignatarc of ‘ 4 D»oh Browne,” being origi
nally published in. that paper. They were
widely read and universally approved. He
was also the war correspondent of the same
paper, and his productions In that capacity
were marked with signal ability. Captain
Fisk leaves a wife and child anda large circle
.of other re l atives to deplore his loss.
The Newburyport Herald proposes to
change Byron’s cynical lines:
'•Seek roecs in December, trraln in chaff,
Believe a woman, or an epitaph,’'
thus, to suit the times:
Beck rosea In December, qntn in chaff.
Behove a woman, or the—telegraph.

pne-tnlf tbeseef the preceding weeks. The receipts
up to T-urtrisy were I.COO head, of which number one*
half consisted of distillery catllr, delivered to ship
pen on Epilog contracts, and the bulk ot the remain*.
aci were not offered ensile, butshipped Easton own*
era* account. There has been but tittle improvement
In tie subsequent supply, amounting, for. the last
thno days of the week, only.to -3.771 bead, of which
nearly one-half consisted of distillery cattle, which
had been previously purchased. On Thursday morn*
leg there were about 3.100 bead of Beef Cattle In tbo
yards, of whlch*iumbernp«ards of 909 bead were
.•hipped through, leaving a balance of
1«00 head on sale. consisted mostly
of good shipping cattle, and were readily gold at an
advance of Sic V ICO As, on the previous quotations of
• ttomuket. The supply yesterday was considerably
lees, the offerings at all the-yards amcuntlng to less
than SCO bead, and to-day the yards have more resetr*
bled the Inactivity of Monday or Tuesday, than the
closing day of the week. The small supply fbr the
Week now closed has no doubt arisen partly from the
dud and depressed state of tae Albany market last
week, and New Tort at ths beginning of the present
week, and partly from tho fret that drovers have kept
back a large portion cf stock, knowing that heavy
deliveries ot distillery and contract Beeves would
probably he made. It Is therefore bn: tha exercise of
that forethought and care which is at all times worthy
of commendation.’ •' ■
The demand for Government Cattle has been con.
slderably less than for several weeks past.bnt.wlth
th’e small supply prices have been well sustained.
The market cloaca this evening with some 18 or 30
cars of Cattle unsold, and which arrived-when the
business of the day was over. .The following are the
beet droves sold during the week:
