BIOGRAPHICAL. A Brief Sketch the Military Services of "Gen." Ben. Le Fever, Democratic Candidate for Secretary of State. It is customary, whenever an individual becomes greatr whether the greatness be thrust upon him or otherwise obtained for some admirer to assume the character of biographer, and pay a fitting tribute to his deeds of merit, and thus perpetuate his memory. Having some little knowl edge of the person whoso name graces tb.e head of this sketch, and having received a number of items' of intense interest from a friend who vies with ns in our admira tion "of his many qualities, and, as many of his former comrades reside in this vi- . cinity, we thought proper to play the role of historian and herald his name in such a. manner as will be sounded from poll to poll. The items relating to his active service were given us by an enlisted soldier in the 99th 0. V. I,j who w;as with the command during the entire term of service, and who tells us that the truth of every statement will be vouched for by nearly all the om cers and soldiers of the regiment Ben. Le Fever first commenced his mil itary career by joining an infantry squad known as "Fremont's Body Guard" not Zsigonyi's which was to be composed entirely of sons of "first families,' as a private, under the promise of a Lieuteu- ancy. 1 his organization was ephemeral and its members were soon scattered among various other regiments, or return ed to their homes. Ben. was commission ed as adjutant but never had command of a company. In about four months after the regiment went to the field, it was en gaged in the sanguinary battle of Stone River. L: p to this time Ben., the Adjutant, had done nothing remarkable. But on that memorial Friday, Jan. 2d, '63, he did signalize himself. I he regiment was placed in an exposed position across the river and when the hour of. severest trial came, and our forces were falling back, having in view the fact that his life was precious both to himself and friends, Ben. commenced a hasty retreat . Hereis one of the best instances on record of a "re treat in good order." He had gone but a few rods, when he threw away a splendid heavy -over-coat which materially imped ed his progress, and with renewed vigor, again broke for the rear. Soon, finding his heavy cavalry boots a burden, he sprang behind a large tree and shed them, and made the balance of the distance to the hospital some two miles in his stockings. The energy displayed on this occasion claims our admiration as one of the attributes and characteristics of a "life long Democrat" Being bootless, he made application for a pair of army shoes to our informant, who purchased them of a fellow soldier and paid for them himself. Ben., however, subsequently paid the debt; when dunned for it at Camp Dennison. As showing the privations' he endured, we will state that lie remained in the bos pital that night, while his comrades lay scattered aoout in the mud and rain on the battle-field ! After the departure of the rebels our troops encamped near Murfresboro to ob tain rest . In consideration of the bravery and presence of mind of the Adjutant, Ben., the chaplain at once made an effort for his promotion. ' Notwithstanding the previous resignation of cowardly, rebel sympathizing officers and the loss of those noble ones who fell on that field, there were still with the regiment two efficient captains as originally organized. Major Day resigned, and this was made at onoe the occasion of an effort as' above stated,, to reward Adjutant Beu. for his bravery, by promoting him over the heads of two captains. The first movement was to pro euro signatures to the petition. Colonel Swayne was absent, and Lt CoL Cum mins would not give his signature to such a base proceeding, and the Chaplain was obliged to go from Brigade Headquarters to that of Gen. Rosecrans, and succeeded in getting the different commanders to sign his paper, ihis document, not sign ed by a single officer of his regiment be ing promptly forwarded to Columbus, procured him his commission. . "Maj." Ben. soon sought detail away from his command, and avoided duty, un til after the battle of Chichamauga, in Sept 1SC3. He then rejoined his regi ment and remained with them during six months of "camp life," but as soon as the roar of cannons could bo heard in the dis tance, upon the opening 'of the great Atlanta campaign, he was taken sick, and was sent to his favorite posi tion the rear. Finding that he could I I secure a safe jwsition on Courts Martial, his sickness was unattended by any fatal symptoms, and he soon recovered. He now spent the time very pleasantly and with profit to the government, as he filled the place of some men, who, in all human probability, possessed a larger share of that element known by phrenologists as "combativeness" than himself. Conse quently, did Major Ben. never, during all those long months of siege and carnage, show himself at the front As our armies were marching back north from Atlanta, he made his appear ance at Rome, Ga., and in an hour was off. again on the cars, having succeeded in procuring a pass, by solemnly promising to rejoin the regiment at Chattanooga, to which point the troops were en-route by rapid marches. The regiment was engag ed in the battle of Nashville,. but no Maj or Ben. showed his face, and therefore could boast that he did not show the ene my his back. Once, or more, on the At lantic campaign, owing to sickness of the Colonel and Lieut ColoneL the command devolved on the ranking Captain, the Ma jor lurking in the rear. After the regi ment was transferred to North Carolina, and the war was ended, a vacancy occur red In the regiment, which made room for a promotion to a Lieut' Colonelcy, and Major Ben. having been duly apprised of his chances, had taken such steps as in sured the wished tut honor. Some time after the commission had reached the com mand, the "Bummer" made his appear ance. During the interval between the promotion of Lieut Col. Cummins, .and the arrival at the front of his commission, and the aspirant from the far-away rear, steps had been taken by the officers of the regiment to prevent any further promotion of the "gallant" Ben. and his commission was revoked, and another worthier, though beneath him in rank, was promoted to fill the vacancy over the head of Major Ben. - It appears that he did not altogeth er relish this ungrateful treatment,'' for he ' again left his regiment, and while staying at Salisbury, N. C, he did not stay with his command, but sought more congenial friends. He boarded with the rebel Ma jor Meyrs, the eonimisary who starved our prisoners, and the rebel General Bradley Johnson, (who dragged the Stars and Stripes at the heels of his horse, through the streets of Fredrick city) was his boon companion. Here ends the history of that "brilliant" military career a coward in the first fight, a skulker through most of the three years, and a rebel sympathizer at heart, it but further demonstrates "the eternal fitness of things" that a convention goverened and controlled by Vallnndigham should nominate him to the highest office which could be offered at this time, as a reward for his valuable services. The last promotion as Brevet Brigadier General was undoubtedly procured thro' political influence, that the copperhead party might have a soldier on their ticket, in the hope of securing the votes of such soldiers as are not acquainted with the antecedents of the man. ' ' He now avows boldly that he supported Vallandingham in the army. Several of his former comrades tell us that when in the army, he denied casting; his vote for the "illustrious martyr." He is a man of narrow mind and limited education has not even the merit of being able to make a speech, but is possessed of powerful sneaking qualities, which properly entitle him to a position on the copperhead tick et JNextiallwe will write his political obituary. Communicated to the Cincinnati Gazette. CINCINNATI, June 7. - In your pater of this morning you.copy an article from the Hancock Jeltersonxm, concerning the antecedents of Gen. Ben. LeFever. This article does the "General" injustice in representing him as unable to make a pubbc address. He certainly dia make one at .Newark the past Winter, when the State. Legislature was on an ex cursion to that place. After uttering a few remarks, he closed his address by saying that he could not better illustrate his posi tion than by quoting those well known lines of the immortal Shakespeare : "Here, Lord, 1 give myself away, Tis all that I can do." Whatever else the gallant Beu. cannot do, it is evident that he can make a speech, and the Hancock county editor should know it Such' misstatements disfigure history, and in the long run they add nothing to the strength of the opposition in politics. It doesn't pay to misrepresent a man s talents, tor the objector is generally overwhelmed in the contest 'Another point was overlooked by the editor or his informant, though thetate- ment is correct, that the patriotic Major was not at or near .Nashville when his regi ment was engaged in battle. Aqput or a little before that time, however, Ben. was in Cincinnati, enduring hardships of an other character. He was pining away his existence in the hospital on Fair Mount taking, for the benefit of his shattered health, moonlight rides with young ladies, and perhaps making occasional visits to the Palace Varieties, and the Olympic on Sixth street, and eertainly to other health restoring resorts.

But Bea's Shake spearian quotation reminds us of the two Copperhead Congressmen who, in an ar gument on religious matters over the bot tle, got into a dispute as to their respective knowledge of the subject under discussion. At last, in order to bring the matter to a close, one offered to bet $25 that the other could not repeat the "Lord's Prayer." The offer was taken, and rising and steady ing himself by the table he commenced : "Now I lay me (hie) down to sleep, (hie) 1 pray the (hie) Lord my soul to keep" ' ''Hold on,!! interrupted the other, 'take the money, (hie) I didn't think you (hie) knewit r-Jeffersonian.- . ..

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE. ,' The report'of Jhe Congressfonat Qm mittee upon Reconstruction is so able a4 conclusive that we wish it might be uni versally read. It is the Constitution and common sense . applied to the situation; and after ths passionate and pettilbgging. spirit in which Reconstruction," the rtOst important of all our present questions has been so often discussed its tone, is manly and dignified. ' There is nothing exactly new in the arguments of the Committee, but the Report is an unanswerable state- ment of the conclusions to which the com-' mon sense of the loyal part of ths country had arrived, and npon which, as wa be-- , lieve, it now reposes. rrt. l . .uvrira wuLiuaiuu!) are ju Uriel ioai ine rebellious States were left, at the close" of the war, without other valid government , than the military authority of the United States, directed by the President as Commander-in-chief; that the civil government of those States could become valid pnly!; upon, recognition, by Congress, and that the resumption by those States of their relations in the Union can occur only npon such conditions as Congress may prescribe. The folly of the assumption ot Alexander . H. Stephens and th late allies of the re bellion, that the moment a rebel State was forced by arms to surrender it regained untouched and without condition every right and privilege.it had enjoyed . as a part of the JJnion is, conclusively exposed' by the Committee. . "To admit, such a principle for, one moment would be to de-, clare that treason is always master and' loyalty a blunder. Such a principle is void by its very nature and essence, because inconsistent with the theory of government ' and fatal to its very existence." To know the condition of the late rebel " States it was necessary either to take the opinion of the President solely, or to sift ' the evidence npon which that opinion was ' founded and enlarge the range of tesSmcK ny. ' This latter course was adopted, and ' the impression left upon the Committee is again that of the great' mass of Union men ' in the country. The condition of the-'1 States in question is precisely what was to be expected. It is a feeling of intense re- ( gret that the struggle could not be pro- , longed, and of bitter, hostility toward the Government . But while this is natural to , any early defeated in so fierce t contest, the Committee find that it is peculiarly, . strong in the States in question. , "The , conciliatory, measures of the Government, do not seem. to have been met even half-" way. The bitterness and defiance exhib-, ited toward the United States under such circumstances is without a parallel in the history of the world." ... . ,. . After the. most careful consideration up-;, on ample evidence, the Committee believe that adequate security should be required , for future peace and safety, and, they sug- ' gest, as the. result of mutual concession, the amendment determining civil rights, equalizing representation, disqualifying certain persons for office under certain conditions, and disowning the rebel debt This amendment has beeit already adopted by the Senate in p. moderate and generous form, and approved by the House. As there is nothing in it which is. not strictly in consonance with the views which the President has often -expressed, we hope that for the sake of harmony he will not. oppose it If, however, a bill should be offered for his signature, postponing the admission of any late rebel State to Con gress until the-amendment had become a part of the Constitution and had been rat ified by the State, he would undoubtedly veto it : It seems to us, for many good reasons, advisable that each ' suspended State should be restored upon its individual acceptance of the condition, and we hope that such may be the final judgment of Congress. ,' " . ' . .' '' Thus , this most' important Committee concludes its labors, ' and concludes them worthily. It has been fiercely derided and insulted by -the most malignant ene mies of the Union and Government at the North and South ; and.everi the President's' impatience has betrayed, him into, vituper ation of it But we challenge any caviler. to produce from history an instance of a . settlement by a victorious government so honorable, so reasonable, so free from yen-, geance, so tenacious of the . spirit of a truly tree- government , There is, no lately re bellious citizen, of the. United States, .who "ai'imuisces" honestlv in the situation, who can declare it ungenerous or unjust, whilo every faithful citizen will heartily,. con- mend it as the true popular platform.
