The Political Sorts.
Avery prominent and very officious sort
arc the Wire and Wool pullers \ it is the
interest of these to be united, and hence it
is policy for them to work together and
tliis they commonly do, and although they
have different parts to perform in the poli
tical drama, it becomes a necessity that
either should understand the others, tactics
that the game may be carried on the more
dextrous. The \\ ire pullers have to lead,
and therefore they arc a kind of chief and
the part they have to act is and must bo
behind the curtain, and it is nothing won
derful for. many a midnight hour to pass
over their ligads while they earnestly conjure
among the wires. To work the wives so as
\ j turn up .lack in the game, is considered
the cream of the performance, but it requires
dextrous handling of the coil to do that,
and hence the art of wire pulling in politics
i j become one of the most intricate, sciences
of this age, and the profoundest sages of
this land are intent on being export in it.
because'to he a skillful wire puller is to be
popular, and to be popular as a wire puller
affords a chance— a very favorable chance
to feather ones own nest.
The feathering of the ne:-t is an import
ant idea, and political handlers whose modi
cum of brain does not reach the standard
of capacity for dextrous wire pulling, go
into the pulling of wool so as to co-operate
with the wire pulling conjurers behind the
curtain. Their business is on the outside
so that you see more of them —here more
of them, and sometimes know more of them
than vou do of the chiefs. These receive
their vUi - from the wire pullers, and being
gcmqse.l in their way, proceed with less or
more caution—less or move shrewdness to
pull the wool gently over the eyes of the
voters, so as to bu able to lead them by, we
had almost said (by the. nose), but that is
too vulgar, therefore we will say by the
beautiful trappings of party cliqu i.sm.—
The class with whom the wool pullers suc
ceed the best, are the Gullibilities , a mis
fortune it is that tins class is so numerous,
and it is really surprising how gently and
innocently they submit to the process ol
having the fleecy fibers drawn over their
eves, and when the wool is drawn over pret
ty thick, they go it blind, and lustely yell,
hunah ! our party forever !
Aye, saith the wire pullers and the wooj
pullers* that's the talk, hip--hip-hurrah !
One t)f the curiosities is the fact that when
the wool is skillfully drawn on, it is no easy
matter to get it otV, in some instances it is
barely possible, but even these instances
arc rave, in fact, the policy of the wire con
jurers and the wool pullers is to make it
stick, if possible, and they are generally
successful. Should it so happen that the
fleecy envelope becomes thin and transpar
ent so that there is no risk that the Gul
libilities will be likely to see through the
wool, other maueuveriugs must be resorted
to, to make the thing hang and hug, and to
those vho are fortunate enough to have
escaped being wooled, it is amusing to see
what appManoes are at work to wool the
■.Gullibilities and how the wire pullers and
the wool pullers play into each others hands.
“Diddle is trump,” says the wire puller.
“Aye, aye, sir,” says the wool puller, “and
trump is diddle,”

A Dollar that Pays Well.
Cue of the best seasonable enterprises,
now before the public is that of the Pub
lisher of the American Agriculturist. He
has secured for his Subscribers line colored
editions of two splendid Maps of localities
of great interest. One of these covering a
space of ten square feet , shows the entire
State of Virginia so complete!}' that every
county, town, city, village, river, brqok,
mountain, hill and principal road, V readily
found. It also embraces the principle parts
of Maryland and Pennsylvania. The other
map, covering about 15 square feet, gives
all the Southern or Slave States, including
Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, Delaware,
and all South of them. Though not so mi
nute as the Map of Virginia, this shows all
the counties, principal towns, rivers, etc., of
the Southern States. Any person subscrib
ing now for the Agriculturist , is presented
with a choice of the above two Maps. In
addition to this, every new subscriber for
18(b!, (Vol. 22,) receives the Agriculturist
for the rest of this year without charge. We
have long received the Agriculturist and can
testify to its real merits. Every number is
well illustrated, and contains a very large
amount of really useful, practicable, relia
ble ieformation for the Farm, the Garden
and the Household, including a very inter
esting department for the little ones. No
one can fail to get many dollars worth of
useful hints from a volume of the Agricul
turist, while the maps now arc so much
extra. We have sent for two copies of the
paper so as to get both maps.—Send for the
paper on our recommendation, or if you pre
fer, send a dime for a single copy and ex
amine it for yourself. The address of the
publisher is CHANGE JUDD, 41 Park Row
New York.
What History Will Say.
The future historian will recount how
a nation of thirty millions of people
were living in a state of fraternal con
cord, under a Constitution and system
of laws devised by themselves; how
they were in the enjoyment of a liberty
so large and perfect, that no wrong was
perpetrated upon the citizen which the
law could not avenge—no political
privilege enjoyed by the rich, that was
not also attainable by the poor ; how
our power as a nation was feared and
respected abroad; how our population
was rapidly on the increase, and the
sails of our trading vessels whitned
every sea ; how the North and the South,
the East and the "West, enjoyed equal
rights in the Government, which was as
perfect and beneficent in its operations
as human wisdom could devise ; how the
ambition of a few desperate adventurers
led them to plot treason against it; how
by false teachings the treasonable utter
ances they alienated the feelings of one
section against the other ; how they re
sisted a President constitutionally elect
ed, broke off from the Government under
a pretence that they feared being op
pressed —seized upon the property of
the Government— its forts, arsenals cus
tom houses, ships, arms, money —any
and everything belonging to it which
was likely to aid them in effecting its
destruction; how in their zeal to pre
cipitate a quarrel, they assailed and re
duced Fort Sumter, thus inaugurating a
bloody conflict: and how, after all this'
had been done, and more, of a character
too fiendish to relate, the authors of the
infamy wished to be considered the
U'rorigcd parties, and then whiningly
asked to be “let alone.”
This is the story which will be told
by those who shall meet in after years
to recount the many battles and their
fearf.T work ; and the curse of humanity
will he upon those who inaugurated the,
civil strife. It was a war commenced
without the shadow of justification —
conducted by its authors in a spirit of
iho most venomous malignity —and for
which all future generations of all na
tions will hold the infamous traitors of
the South responsible. — Ex.
It is likely enough to be so if the
Southern Confederacy do not succeed in
establishing a nationality. The nations
of the world arc a good deal effected
by success, let success attend the put
ting forth of this Confederacy and it will
applaud itself, and it will be applauded
by others —some others. It is likely
enough that the Federalist —those whose
faces are set against the South may ex
ecrate and denounce the thing, but should
the matter, after all, accomplish its ob
ject there will be found historians who
will make it appear a noble —a glorious
achievement. This sort ot thing is
found to ho the rule in past history, and
is applveu even in the case of individu
als. Some man commences a desperate
nefarious scheme, he fails and his fail
ure brings anathamas upon his head ;
someone else goes into a scheme equally
as nefarious, he succeeds and he is ap
plauded. it is not a sense of honor —
of right that the world is disposed to
applaud so much as success. Success,
in the idea of the world, supposes geni
us, and genius is worshiped—and many
a time worshiped at the expense of vir
tue and integrity. And “the story
which will he told” of this rebellion in
after years will depend on what end ot
the horn it will come out at. — Ed.

Great Meetimg at Racine. The
Racine Journal has a report of a large
and enthusiastic Inion Meeting hold in
that city last Monday evening, for the
purpose ofendorsing the President s pi oc
lamation. The principal speaker uas
Mat. 11. Carpenter, of this city, who
made one ofhisbestefiorts. Col. handers,
of the 19th Wisconsin, also made some
remarks in approval of the proclama
tion. Judge Doolittle was also present,
and spoke in his most earnest style, upon
the grief that had been caused by the
rebellion, rendering the authors it
worthy of the worst puni hment, Ibe
Journal adds that Rev. Mr. Barry made
an exceedingly eloquent address. The
resolutions were as follows :
Resolved . That wc regard the re-,
cent proclamation ot the President of the
United States, emancipating slaves in
such States as shall bein rebellion against
the Government ol the United Stales on
the Ist day of J anuary,lBG3, as an exercise
of power and authority given to the Ex
ecutive of the nation, and to the chief
of the army and navy.
Resolved , That wc fully approve
and endorse the proclamation-mentioned,
not only as a military necessity, but as
a measure fraught with wisdom and true
policy. That wc will sustain the Presi
dent, in this and all other acts of his,
which shall have for their object, the
suppression of this gigantic rebellion
and the restoration of the Union, under
the Constitution as it is.
Resolved , In the language of Senator
Douglas, that “in this war there can be,
none but patriots and traitors; and that
it is the duty of the people to, use all the
power that God has given them to main
tain the constitution and government
that our fathers established for us; and
the more energy and unanimity wc dis
play in the performance of this great
duly, the less will be the destruction of
life and property, and the sooner will
come (he day of peace.”

vi lie, Oct. s.—The Louisville special
dispatch of the 2d inst.. concerning the
taking of 500 rebels by Ilosencrans’ di
vision. was incorrect. It doubtless was
based on the fact that an entire Georgia
regiment of cavalry, three hundred and
sixty strong, was captured in the early
part of last week by Lieut. Col. Steward,
of the. 2d Indiana cavalry, commanding
his own and the 2d and 3d Kentucky,
which surrounded and surprised the reb
els at breakfast, who surrendered with
out the slighest sbsistance.
Col. Crawford, commanding the cap
tured regiment, is the cx-Congrcssman.

Gen. Hooker's report of tlie Battle of
William-burg, fought on the Peninsula,
in May last, has just been published.
It contains some remarkable statements.
According to Gen. Hooker, the rebel
army might have have been c t to pieces,
but for tin* strange neglect by which 30,-
000 1 niori soldier’s in his immediate
neighborhood were withheld from co
operating with him against the enemy.—
The report says:
i- As soon as darkness concealed their
movements, the Rebels retreated in a
state of niter demoralization, leaving be
hind artillery, wagons, &e, See. History
null not be believed when if is told that
the noble officers and men of mi/ Division
ta re permitted to carry on this unequal
struggle from morning nut ill night , un
aided, sn the presence of more than thir
ty-thousand of their com cades with arms
in their hands. Nevertheless, it is true.
If we failed to capture the Rebel army
on the plains of Williamsburg, it surely
"ill not bo ascribed to the want of con
d act a ml courage in my command.—Mad

The Last Advance.— The Philadel

nificant language:— “The armies of the
republic are marshaling for the last time
in the history of the groat rebellion.—
Fhe orgdiuzat on which exists now must
remain till the end of the war. Soon
an advance will he made very generally,
in every direction and by every corps
of the army. The dag has bee • fixed —
the leaders have been chosen and a.s
signed to their positions, and the nec
essary orders have been written.”

I LATEST NEWS.
| Cairo, Oct. s.—Well ivo glorious news
to-day from Corinth. The rebels were
routed and are retreating. Their loss
is heavy and ours is also large.
Gen. Dodge has sent a message from
Columbus to prepare fora large number
! of wounded.
Price, Van Dorn and Lovell were in
i command of the rebels, who numbered
140.000. Our troops are said to have
i acted nobly. We can get no distinct
account of Friday's battle.
On Saturday morning Price attacked
Rosencrans’ right, and Aan Dorn and
Lovell bis left. The assault was made
with great determination. At one time
our center was penetrated and the rebels
reached the Corinth House near the cen
ter of the town. They were driven out
at the point of the bayonet. Van Dorn
led his column over an abattis on the
left, up to within fifty yards of the ditch,
exposed all the time to a scathing fire of
grape and cannister. They wore driven
back by a charge of the 27th Ohio and
cljth Missouri. The buttle lasted till
half past eleven, when the rebels began
to retreat towards liatehie river.
The number of killed and wounded
on either side is not known. '1 be rebel
loss is reported to be much, larger than
ours. We have between seven hundred
and a thousand prisoners, not including
the wounded. Gen. llackleman is killed.
Gen.■Oglesby' is dangerously wounded.
Cols. Smith, Gilbert and Mower are
wounded.
The Mobile and 0. 11. R. is not ser
iously injured. The telegraph has been
opened to Corinth.
Gen. Hurlburt marched on Saturday
to tlie south side of the liatehie river,
thus cutting off Price's retreat.
Gen. Rosencrans moved early this
morning to renew the attack.
Cannonading was heard to-day in the
direction of these lorces. Price is in
the forks of liatehie river, between Hurl
hurt and Rosecrans.

Gen. McPherson, vrith his command,
reached Corinth yesterday.
Gen. Roseeans pursued the retreating

Whig, of September 30th, contains the
following:
In the (rebel) Senate, on the 29th of
Septeu her, Sen. Simms, of La., submit
ted the following joint resolution :
Resolved , By the Congress of the
Confederate States that the proclama
of Abraham Lincoln, President of the
United States of America, at the city of
Washington, on the 22d day of Septem
ber, in the year 1862, wherein he de
clares that “on the first of January,
1863, all persons held as slaves within
any state or designated parts of a state
whereof the people shall be in rebellion
against the United States, shall be hence
forth and forever free/’ is leveled against
the citizens of the Confederate States,
and as such is a gross violation of the
usages of civilized warfare; —an outrage
on the rights of private property, and
an invitation to an atrocious servile war.
and th relore s hon'd be held up to the
execration of mankind, and counteract
ed by such severe retaliatory measures
as in the judgment of the President may
be calculated to, secure its withdrawal
or arrest its execution.
