Not cov tent by thus slandering us he aftributcu to us the, basest qualities belonging to man. "llo will do anything for u',ney." His warrant for saying this in tint given j b it wo wish him to undors.iiid, that we value money only so fur fcs it enables us to pny onr just and honest debts ; nnd timitttitin nn lionornble reputation. To do this we bavo toiled early nnd Into, and practiced tho clos est economy, and we nro pleased to think we can pass ollf neighbors without being aceOsod of defrauding them. We ask what hus bocnMr. Ilig jins' policy in bin money matters ? Heretol'oro with tho income of tho .TourMfloftipo wholly his own, and as public printer with the credit! and the resources of the County at his command in tho orders of which, ut times he has frvcr drawn to tho amount of lynfliiffciU if dollars, yet this liberal and iiiihclfihli patriot, has drawn largely on tho benevolence of his friends, who now are calling for the spirit of their funds, fom the vnsly depths of his wallet, but tho money will not come. To tho holders of his paper, which in the course of business wo have hud to pny, mid to the mrrchants and mechanics with whom we ench have had dealings, wc nppcnl nn to which has pursued the must lionornble course. Wc do not sny to him, what has suid of us, namely that " ho will do anything or money," yet it is well known here nnd elsewhere that he will do anything with his money, rather than pay his debts. The diabolical niulignity exhibited by him in speaking of nnd magnifying our errors displays more tho treacherous instrument of n sinful heart and the character of a fiend, Uiun of a man, mid tho difference between us and him in tho fact that lie has nothing to fall from. Ilis motive in referring to our pastor OA transparent nn it is malicious. If ho in tends thereby to hold tho llev. gentleman up to tho derision of his readers, wo beg assure him that ho is sailing on the sen scandal without rudder, or compass. For many years Mr. Shannon has discharged the duties of his office, with credit to himself and to the satisfaction of all who know him, and we exceedingly regret this reference him, in the scurrilous utlack on us. The charge of our confession, implying a con fessional, ho far ns it refers to the M. Chim.1i, is too stale and Impertinent to ro- '- ceivo tho credence of nny intelligent per son, nnd if by such insinuation Mr, Uiggins intends capital for malicious ami slamioroiiH rgossip, the avails, will be equally as valuable as his signature to a promisory nolo. The reason which may bo assigned him for attacking us is that wo have admit ted to our columns articles rellecting on conduct ns a public journalist, in regard which, we would say wo huve been actuat ed by the best feeling toward Mr. Higgius, and until last September did not permit any thing in our columns derogatory to him. At that time, or shortly previous, circum stances arose to change our opinion of him. Wo found ho was unscrupulous, nnd iu his attacks on our citizens both in their public and private capacity. To ward Addison Smith especially, mid others ho adopted a policy of relentless persecu tion ; designed to beat down and destroy, and to remove from office. And for what? simply because Mr. Smith stood in tho way of Mr. lliggins' political nnd selfish pros pects. Also casting aside the ordinary courtesies of political warfare, Mr. llig gins has not hesitated to designa'c good tizcus by name both in tho Toledo Time Independent and expose them to the exhala tions of his scurrility. Our own intercourse with him hns sntistied us, that wo cannot rely cither on his word, or his honor. is as reckless in bis statements ns bo malicious in his actions. Under these wo considered the claim of to reply to him through our paper to right. His denial of the promise he lis " not to start or aid in starting another paper in Porrysburg," must bo determined by the circumstances, and tho probabilities in the case. To the citizens of I'errysburg and of Wood county, and to their loudness men, we leave the cose, knowing tho Mr. HiggiiiB has acquired as an tor, his acquaintance with all our subscrib ers, and his intimate knowledge of ull details of our business, with the knowledge of possible contingencies, we ask if it crobablo that wo or any other sano would purchase tho precarious tenure country paper nnd printing office, without obtaining the condition of not starting opposition? We most positively that wo would not, and did not, so purchase, '. and the sophistry of a dozen l'liiludolpliia ' lawyers will not conviuce any man of tnon sonso that we did. However, after tho absolute sulo to us, he with Mr. farr, for the transfer ' his Tress to rcrrysburg, stating as an that liis (Higgius.) political In tho county of Wood, would liim to get candidate nominated who ' favorably regard thcra in tho printing ncss. With this understanding Mr. : united with him in starting the bailing in his scheme to supplant us by ' election, ms dropping through in Ins ver with the Commissioners, his fertile aud generous heart, has induced him through his paper and otherwise to represent us ignorant and incompetent, as a tool of r men, as the associate of drunkards ; paper tue organ of whisky, and a sink '. corruption 5 and our contributors are erib4 as drunkards and a blackguards. His object by tM ruodo ef operation, destroy our reputation, deprive us of foiiAdence, aud ruin our business, and In a mean, Isiso ami umiianl Kf, inks from lid tlio liualuess we Imil nought of, and hot)' nrnMy paid him for.

After our compliments to tho "old folks at home," wo visited Tump King, nlwuit three miles up tho Licking river, nnd on tho llfic of the Covington ami l.exiiigtnn railroad. There are t-vo reg iments at Camp King the 10th Kentucky aud '20th Ohio; the former a new regiment and lacking several companies of the rcquir ed number. The location in a very pleas ant one, situated us it is on a level plain of somo two miles in length and one iu breadth Immediately north of the ennip, on the top of tho range of hills, which surround New port nud Covington, is constructed a bat tery of two 32-potindors, and on tho oppo site side of the Licking river is located lottery of six guns, two 32-pounders and f'Oir 24-pounders. These two batteries com inand tho railroad, river nnd the surround ing country for a distance of four to six miles. There arc also a number of other butteries, located at convenient points ull along on the circle of hills on the Kentucky shore. Tho Ohio bnvs were enthusiastic for tho I'nion the Keiituckiaus had little to say, except the expression of a fear that Congress was trying to make this a war for the iiiiiiihilntion of the institution of slavery, instead of a war for tho preservation of the Union. While at Camp King, nn incident occurred which may not be uninteresting. A lady, who hud been acting the gentleman iu soldier's clothes for two months or more, had, by her courteous behavior, attracted tho attention of the commissioned officers. Happening to meet the regimental physi cian in Covington, that officer invited the female soldier to take a drink with him. Rho begged to be excusvd, but was finally prevailed upon to drink, nfter which she and her friend separated the one returning to camp, nnd the other continuing her per ambulations about town. Soon after, how ever, the liquor begun to take effect, and she was picked up by the police and con veyed to tho watch-house, where her sex was discovered. She was subsequently re turned to ennip, and the matter being ex plained, (she claiming to have a " lovycr " in the tinny whom sho Was anxious to meet,) the physician at oneo gavo her a position as nurse iu his department. Our curiosity concerning the fortifications about the Queen City having been satisfied, wo left for the Falls City, where we arrived on Monday, just in time to learn that (Jen Nelson's brigade had tlmt morning left for Elizabeth town. Col. Norton's regiment be longs to thin brigade. Tho destination of the troops, moving in this direction, is sup posed to be Howli.ig (Jreen. Tho probal il ity of a battle nt Howling (reen in not gen erally regarded as certain. Some think the rebels will Ktund their ground, while others seem ns confident that they will retire to ward Columbus, to assist in protecting that point. The attack on Columbus will prob ably take plaeo from three different points the floating batteries on tho Mississippi, from tho direction of Pnducuh nnd from point below Howling (Ireen. At least such seems to bo tho opinion among military men. The lTth Ohio was ut Lebanon. We visited about a half a dozen encampments below Louisville, and two on the Indiana side of tho Ohio, some two miles back .lelTersonville, where the troops seemed be well contented, although many of them uro in the enjoyment of very poor health. It seems that a largo number of the troops are illy able to forego the hardships attend ing the service of Uncle Sam, and they long for the adoption of a policy that will author ize the acceptance of negro help to do the drudging work of tho army. Viewing tho question of tho policy of the government, from tho stand-point wo occu pied upon Kentucky soil, we are led to the conclusion that a declaration of Congress order tho arming of slaves, sanctioned the President, would prove a heavy burden for the real Unionists of that State to breast, against the combined power and influence of the Kentucky " sccesh," and that party of Unionists, whose friends nud sous nre tho rebel army. Tho disuuionists of Ken tucky have all along held up this policy being one of the chief objects of the present Administration, with a view to indue Unionists to join them in one common cause "against the aggressions of tho North;" but the Unionists have nobly and success fully lent back the monster, " sccesh," that the object of the Government was to put down tho rebellion, aud restore the rebel states to tho position they once occupied in this glorious old Union. conversation with several prominent Ken tucky Union men, we found that they read ily endorsed the propriety of employing couiiscutcd slaves of the rebels iu tho woik of digging trenches, building fortifications and camp drudgery in general, but could not see how a slave could bo put der a course of training and bo mado effec tive ; besides it was virtually placing negro, on a military equality with tho whito man. To place arms in tho hands of slaves and turn them against their oppres sors, unless divided into small platoons put under tho controlling power of twice their number of whites, would be to tho lives of men, women and children, respectivo of age, at the mercy of a whoso thirst for retaliation would know bounds, when once fired up to tho poiiil reakmg their revenge, fcnch a com they thought would be followed by very worst consequences. Judging tho courso of tho Ituisvillo Journal, is evident that the secessionists make some capital out of tho present doings of Congress, no mutter How aervativo may bo their actions ; but Unionist will undoubtedly remain a major ity, unless Congress should pass some of an uet, looking to the general vm incipa tion of th slaves, in which event we 9fe not sure but that the opposition to over como would be tnncli more formidable, hos tile and desperate In its character.
