S. CROSBY : : : : ; Editor. Thursday Morning, Nov. 19. Prosperity of lowa County. The Supervisors of the County were in session last week, and after auditing and al lowing all righteous bills, there is left in the County Treasury the snug little sura of a!>out, three thousand dollars over and above all claims on the County. We also un jderstand that our County taxes, for th :present year arc considerably below whaf ■ they were last year. There are not man’, I Counties in the State of Wisconsin can show as clean a record these war times as Old fowa‘. Leased Cotton* Plantation*.?. —Adjn tant Geri. Thomas, makes a very able re port to the department at Washington ofth< great success attending the leasing ofaban doned cotton plantations along the Miss issippi river to contrabands and others.— The trial was made under great disadvan tages, in an enemy’s country, nearly tw< months out of season, followed by the rebel attack on Milliken’s Bcrtd during the sum mer, causing some of the lessees to leave, and the fields to grow up to weeds <Src.— The whole thing was done without any ex pense to the government, the contrabands supporting themselves and their families. The number of bales of cotton raised on these plantations will not' much, if any, fall short of 8,000 giving to the Govern ment the sura of $15,000 as a revenue. The lesees will also pay to the Quartermaster’s Department, for mules, utensils, &c , fur nished or found on the place, some SIOO,- 000. The charge, in lieu of rent, is two dollars per bale, making $16,908. The Government’s share on some plantations abandoned by lessees may sell for one hun dred and fifty thousand dollars. Many of these plantations were leased to white men, thus showing that cotton can be grown by free labor, white as well as black, successfully under favorable circumstances. BST’The importance of the position acquired by our forces on Lookout Mountain, is shown by a correspondent of the Memphis Appeal, a Rebel organ. In a letter written when it was hold by the Rebels, he said, “The question which now occurs, is ; At what point ia Roseorans likely to develop his inten tions? I believe that It will be on the left of our line and for the following reason: Lookout Mountain, which is now in our possession, is essential to the Federal commander, if he has determin ed to hold Chattanooga as a base of fur ther operations, as Nashville, Murfrees boro or Bridgeport, for the simple rea son that it commands the railroad, contains several important passes, and it is a standing threat over Chattanooga. Once possessed by the enemy it relieves Hieir wagon trains, enables them to pro vision their army and gives them the most valuable position for offense or de fense in this entire region,” Our Relations With England. The speech of Sir Roundell Palmer, Attorney General of England, will com mand attention as an official expression of the policy of the British Govern ment. lie holds that America lias a right to expect neutrality from Eng land and a strict compliance with inter national law. The recognition of the rebel States as belligerents was justifi able, for certainly for the time being they are carrying on a war for them selves and have a Government. If they were not belligerents, the blockade could not be maintained. But their independence cannot be recognized, for the}’ have not yet established it. In terference at present would not benefit the South, and would justly exasperate the North. When the Northern armies were withdrawn, then it would be time for recognition. There had been no gross or manifest injustice showed to British shipping by the war vessels of the United States, and the latter Gov ernment had not asserted the laws of war more strictly than England. The British Government had incurred some obloquy by interfering with influential citizens who wished to help the South, hut it would rather incur obloquy or even relinquish office than abrogate the Policy it had itself marked out and fritter away time in endeavoring to dis turb tb.e blockade. He then showed the difference between lawml trade with belligerents and the fitting out of armed vessels, and thus hazarding the preser vation of neutrality. Alluding to the case of the Alabama , he said that Gov ernment was not to be blamed for every evasion of the law, if it desired and tried to do right. The Government desired to maintain peace, but only on honorable terms. The tone of the speech was eminently pacific, and its hearers—it was delivered to the voters pt Richmond. England—endorsed its e ntiipcui* by pledging their support t< the Uoveruuient. It has, however, made *-c avrapathirerr verv argrv The State Elections. EXTRACTS FROM DEMOCRATIC PAPERS. First. —The Milwaukee See-Bote a German paper of Milwaukee, gives vent to its feelings in the following doleful strains ;—which has been trans lated into English : Lost —The longer the leading article we would have written te-day, by so much the shorter is the leading article we will write to-day, and that is : Lost\ In this world is contained all we have to sav. Wisconsin is lost.— lllinois . lost —Michigan , lost —aye, Mew YbrJe, the last bulwark of popular freedom, is lost. The sun shone yesterday wonder fully fair from the blue heaven—but it shone to us not the sun of AusterVtz— it was the sun of Waterloo ! It avails not now to enquire ’.nto the causes which have brought about this overthrow— our cause lost. A people that can sanct^ on a t the ballot-box the subversion r their constitution,,and the annihila tion of personal liberty — such a people does not deserve to he free —and more over will not he free. ‘All things have heir course,’ says Socrates ; ‘and all,’ -ays Seneca, the Roman Philosopher, all things go more quickly downwards than they went upwards.’ - ’ Next comes the La Crosse Democrat , whose edi tor leads off in the following peculiarly Brickish style : GONE —GONE —CONE! Good bye, and if forever, fire thee well ! We have as a met the en emy —surrounded them from the centre and shall consider ourselves prisoners of war. The Democratic party of Wiscon sin has died again. And hero is the way it looks to us. FOUND DEAD. On the morning of November 4th, one thousand eigh hundred and sixty-three years after Christ —five thousand eight hundred and thirty-seven years after Adam, the Democratic party of Wis consin was found apparently dead in the wilderness, or at least so badly wound ed as to fail recognition. It was well laid out and found nicely wrapped up in the Ryan Address, with E. G. Ryan himself sitting at the head of the corpse waving his head and chanting hysterical ly a funeral dirge. We have been cleaned—routed foot horse and artillery. The adoption of the Ryan Address was more than the party could bear. It was too long—it was too full of words which could be doubly construed. It has cost us an election, and henceforth and forever we trust there will he no more foolish ex perimenting. That address never will go down. It is so long people will not read it. Rich men care not to read it the poor man has not time to read it. Had the convention at Madison pitched Ryan’s enigma out of the window and adopted a set of resolutions like the fol lowing : Resolved , That this country is in trouble. Resolved , That tee are the bully hoys to help her out. The Democratic ticket would have gone through whooping. But no. That address was adopted. The convention would have adopted no other had it been offered by Jesus Christ himself.— A majority of the delegates went to Madison to enforce it on the people — they didthe job and the result is known. Verily “Brick” is a philosopher. Then follows the Watertown Demo crat in the following cold-shoulder style towards the Ryan Address: The Democracy are whipped—beaten in Wisconsin, Now York, Minnesota, and everywhere ehe, as matters now appear. We might as well give the whole concern up at once, and let the Republicans have their own wav and do. Most of the papers and politicians are very wise just now—all knew it would be so—arc not at all disappointed. How easy it is to talk after events have solv-. ed the problem and settled the question. Anew start in the right direction, would have a very powerful influence in raising the defeated Democracy from prostration to triumph. Nothing else can. Evidently the efficacy of the Ryan Address has been demonstrated. It is good to get beat on, and that is all it is good for. Given , that plat form and 15,0t10 majority. Given the country, Constitution, Union and the suppression of the rebellion and 15.000 majority. That is the difference. We nad an admirable ticket, but something more is indcspensable tosuc cess, in times like these, besides un exceptionable candidates. Thousands of Democrats went for the men in spite of the platform, and thousands more re fused to go for either on account of the latter. There is the truth in a small compass. Those interested can reflect on it at their leisure. We never liked the scheme of accept ing such a document as the IWan Ad dress as the basis of political action, or the foundation of political principles.— Being neither an adequate, fit or sound test-book for anybody except, perhaps, its author, we have neither adopted nor advocated it. Whether right or wrong, and we do not either approve or con demn the whole of it, it teas a suicidal blunder to put it foncard as the senti ment of a party devoted to the country. The ccnsequeuse is an overwhelming defeat when victory might have crown ed onr effort*! W? it ip not ton late to listen to the lessons of experi ence. Our neighbor of the Darlington In dependent thus gives vent to his feelings on the turn matters have taken down there in Old Lafayette. From a Demo cratic majority last election of near five hundred, she now gives at least fifty majority for the Union ticket. THE COUNTY ELECTION. The Democratic party have always been a mirthful party, but with all their * e vity of character and happy deport ment, they cannot take the present county eletion as a joke, but like Mr. Lincoln’s big boy, who was prostrated by tripping his toe, we are too big to cry and ; t hurts too bad to laugh. The idea that old La Fayette with all her glori ous memories of splendid victories should take such a freak, entirely banishes the idea of certainty in white man. This town has frequently given lar ger Republican majorities than the pres ent, but Benton, New Diggings and Shulisburg were scarcely ever before guilty of doing so unworthily. Mr. Hayden, in the Southern District, beats Mr. Scales, handsomely. Warden beats Murphy about fifty, and unless the sol diers come to the rescue, Mr. Hall is still heading for Darragh’s. Dr. Lee is School Superintendent, although War den says he is sorry Dickinson was not nominated. The heavy rain on the day after election has raised the tributaries of Salt River, giving easy and safe navi gation up that stream. The last we knew anything, a Republican wras ask ing us to give him ten cents to buy powder with to celebrate our defeat — another joke we could not appreciate. Slavery the Rebellion. No impartial observer can fail to see that slavery is the root, and life, and soul of this rebellion. If the rebellion could be suppressed to-morrow and slavery pre served, we should have the planted seed and quick growing harvest of another re bellion. For slavery is a perpetual out rage upon all right —an open defiance of all law. It meets humanity at every righteous enactment, and conti ivenes it. And it substitutes, for the hun.ane pre cepts of love and good will, the law of brute force. Not a sin is denounced in the decalogue, not a crime is hedged against by human enactments) which is not embodied in the law and practice of Slavery. How then, can Slavery, de nying and defying the very object of government-justice and right between man and man—and warring upon all the principle:, of a free government, be loy al to that government ? The very es sence of slavcholding is to rule, not to be ruled —to command not to obey. — How then can the slaveholders be the loyal and obedient subjects of a free and equal government? They never have been, and the moment they could not rule. they rebelled. They never will be, —this they themselves affirm —and the very nature and practice of slave holding forbids it. They never can be, for every slaveholder is a despot at heart, and no despot can be the willing sub ject of just and equal laws, nor the loy al citizen of a free Republic. Hence the determined slaveholders of this coun try are all rebels to our free Constitu tion and government —every oneof them. And this is a war —pure and simple— between Slavery and Aristocracy and Democracy. And in waging this war the Aristocracy —the Slaveholders — make use of their chattle slaves in the South, and their political slaves —the copperheads—in the North. And the copperheads object to the government’s using, either thorn or their allies —the slaves—in conquering their rebellious masters. The slaves having become tired of the rebels, are ready io volun teer to defend the government. But the copperheads, from love to their southern masters, refusing to aid the government, have to be conscripted and compelled to do their duty. Look all over the rebel South and through the border Slave States, and you will find the prevalance and strength of rebel sentiments uniformly proportioned to the prevalence and strength of slavery. Every blow, therefore, struck at slavery is a blow struck at the vitals of the re bellion. And every effort to shield and preserve slavery—as has been done by the President in excepting the border slave states for the Emancipation Proc lamation, and in his recent siding with the pro-slavery party, and continuing the pro-slavery rule in Missouri—weak ens the Union cause and strengthens the rebels. Let no loyal man hope to end the re bellion. without putting an end to slav ery. For slavery is the rebellion, and the rebellion is nothing but a gigantic and organized effort of the slave power to subject the government to its rule, and make slavery universal and perpetu al. And in waging this war upon a free government, slavery but obeys the law of its being. And when the gov ernment and T-oople of the North learn and fully appreciate this truth—and they are fast learning, but have not yet learned it—the rebellion will hare short thriving, for the rebellion and slavery will perish together and have a common sepulcher. And how many more dis asters are needed to teach us this truth, will depend on the slowness of our hearts to believe and to learn. —Daily Life. A Democratic exchange comes to us with a notice that “Truth” is crowded out of this issue. This is almost as bad as the up country editor who said : “For the evil rfiVef* n fevirating drink*, onr in^vl<*.‘. Late News. Our readers must excuse us this week for lack of ne.ws, next we shall try and make up a digest of everything of interest. As it is, war matters are progressing favorably in all quarters. The Canadian plot is a failure—four block ade runners have been captured, one having on board £0,099 Enfield rifles, the others were loaded with vrluable assotted cargoes. There does not appear to be anything particularly new transpiring in the Potomac army. The Bank’s expedition had arrived at Brownsville, on the Bio Grande, the rebels evacuating and setting it on fire, but our forces put it out, fighting the rebels in the streets at the same time. There is nothing new from Chattanooga, but another fight is expected there again soon. At Charleston matters remain about the same. A band of about 5,000 Unionists have made their escape from the mountains of Georgia ard N. Carolina into Tennessee and joined the Union army. They fought their way out, whipping the rebels in two or three engagements The Radicals arc victorious in Mis souri, Grant/ Brown of the Mo. Democrat , and—Henderson, Emancipation candidates being elected to the U. S. Senate, fram that State. The Draft at Prairie du Chier> on Monday, passed off without any trouble or undue excitement. In another column we publish the names of those drafted in this county. News, Items etc. Lancaster, the County Seat of Grant County, has furnished 190 men for the war since the rebels fired the first gun on Sum ter. The Platteville folks are just now engag ed in survej’ing the route for the contem plated railroad from that place to the Mis sisippt river. The heaviest grade is only thirty feet to the mile, and that for only a mile or so. Here in Dodgeville we cannot even have a survey—to say nothing of an extension of the Mineral Point Railroad to our own village. Verily, we are a slow boat. —The Dubuque Herald , says the Min nesota Packot Cos. have sold out their entire line of steamboats, to the Illinois Central Railroad Company, fifteen in number, many of them first class boats. There were also 29 barges sold, together with warehouse privileges &c. The price paid was $l5O - A big western transaction. This line of boats was mostly owned in Galena. —Wheat is worth in Galena from 85 to 90 cents ; corn 45 to 50 cents ; oats 62 J to 65 cents; barley 90c to $1,00: and rye 70 to 75 cents. —The leased cotton plantations along the Mississippi are producing a net income to the government of $l4O per acre. A Goon Take. —A drunken Confederate Surgeon, captured at Little Rock, Ark,, on awaking, remarked that it beat Old Rip Van Winkle, that a man could not go to s’eep in the Confederate States without waking up in the United States. —Dr Winship now lifts 2,000 pounds, and expects soon to reach the 3,000 notch —The potato rot is said to have broken out again in Ireland. In some localities three-fourths of the crop have perished Cause, heavy and constant rains. In Portland, Me., about 1,000 bushels of potatoes are concentrated per day, for army use. A bushel makes about five pounds. This concentrated potatoe is then ground up, giving it the appcrance of In dian meal. It is cooked somewhat like starch. —The supervisors of Lafayette County have squeezed up everything, and have $2,- 500 in the Treasury, so says the Indepen dent. A good record. following paragraph from one of Beecher’s late speeches in England is to the point. Hitting the nail square on the head: “Police,” said Mr. Beecher, “have no right to enter your house as long as you act according to law, but when you defy the law, they have a right to enter. So in a constitutional Government we had no power to touch Slavery while Slavery re mained a constitutional institution, but when it lifted itself up from its state of hu mility and attempted to become a national policy, it became a national enemy, and no jonger had a national exemption.” Marshal Fry has issued a circular containing the following ; Towns which have raised the money to pay their quotas receive the same credit ns if actual substitutes has been furnished. The President has ordered that every citizen who has paid the §3OO commutation shall receive the same credit therefore as if he had furnished a substitute, and is exonerated from mili tary service for the time for which he was drafted, to wit: for three years. An Artificial Soldier. —Near St. gevier, in France, there lives an old sol dier with a false leg, a false arm, a glass eye, a complete set of fale teeth, a nose of silver, covered with a substance im itating flesh, and a silver plate replaced part of his skull. He was a soldier un der Napoleon, and these are his tro phies. He must be a splended speci men of composite architecture. Army Correspondence. Headquarters 31st Reg’t Wis. Tots., 1 Murfreesboro, Tens., Nov. 4th, 1863./ Friend Wrigglesworth.—As you requested me to inform you occasion ally of the health and whereabouts of Cos. “C,” I hereby comply wdth your request: — The Regt. left La Yergne on the 25th of Oct., (having been there for three weeks) and guarded a wagon train thro’ to this place. We passed through a part of the battle-field of Stone River, where we saw the graves of many poor fellows who had fallen in the defence of the flag they love so dearly. We also passed a rebel trench where 180 traitors were mowed down by one of the Wis. Batteries —the sth I believe. They had been covered but slightly as we could plainly perceive their toes sticking out of the ground, and many of the bones had been scratched up by dogs. All the Union soldiers were de cently interred, with palings to protect them, and in one place a fine monument is in course of erection over the remains of the fallen heroes of General Ilozen’s Brigade. Murfreessboro is about the size of Dodgeville, though more com pactly built and with more elegant buildings. It has been a very pretty place, and is so still although its beauty is sadly marred by the ravages of war. The place is strongly fortified, more so than Nashville. The 22d and 31st Wis. are all the infantry here at present, and picket duty is rather heavy, the boys coming on every other day ; but we are required to keep a vigilant watch as Forrest has been prowling around here lately. Three companys of our Regt. have been detailed to guard a bridge two miles and a half below here. The election took place yesterday, giving a heavy Union majority. Cos. “C” cast a heavy Democratic vote of one ! Union votes 42, total 43. The health of the Regt. is improving rapidly as we have excellent water close to camp.
