Tiik Louisville JJcmocrdt says thaC a petition i being numerously signed by tho dress-makers of Louisville, memoralizing Congress, to repeal to mueh of the internal revenue law as. relates to their branch of business. As the law now exists, it is unusually oppressive. The class of ladies who earn their livelihood in this branch of business, aro generally tho most worthy and self-reliant of their sex, and it docs seem that they should be en couraged, rather than to have the product of their labor oppressively taxed. The fact is, the Oovcrnmcnt, instead of taxing this class of pro ducers, should foster and encourage them. Tiikeb will be a grand Slosqucradc Ball and Soiree at the SlasonicIIall on Christmas night.

The rciiort of the Secretary of War throws light on the matter of history in regard to which much interest has been felt by the public. AVe refer to the strength of the innyol the Potomac, under the immediate command of General Meade, hut directed by the Lieutenant General, at the two im- lortant periods of the bpnng of 1804, and the .Spring of 1803. General Meade crossed the Jtapidan, on the 4th of May, 18G4, with 120,380 men. General Grant says, in his report, that " by Rix o'clock of the mornintr of the Gth, he (General Hurnnidc) was lead ing his corps into action near the Wilder ness tavern." Uurnsidc's force (the Ninth Corps) numbered 20,000. Tims, in the sec ond battle (Wilderness) after crossing the Knimlan, Ucncral Meade liad, under his immediate command, one hundred and forty odd thousand troops. From the best infor mation wc can obtiin, General Lcc'n army commenced this scries of battles about sev enty thousand strong, and received no re enforcements, except the small force of three or four thousand that came from the Valley under Breckinridge, shortlv before the bat tic of Cold Ilarlwr. After the battle of Spottsylvania Court House, rc-cnforecmcnts, in large numbers. were sent to Gen. Grant from Washington ; and upon his forming a junction with Gene ral Ihitler, he was re-enforced by the whole strength of the Army of the James. In the mean time General Lee had been comjielled to weaken himself by sending Itrcckinridgc back to the Valley, and dispatching Early, with pome fifteen or twenty thousand men, to meet Hunter, then moving on Lynchburg. This reduction of force was not compensa ted bv the accession gained from the irarri- son of Itichmond and the force hatwecn this city and Petersburg under Hcauregard. (Jn the 1st ol .March, imo, a month be fore tho final and successful assault on Lee's lines, the strength of the Army of the Poto mac is Kiven by Secretary Stanton as 103,- 273. This was the " available force present lor uiitv." The exact strength of the Army of the .lames, at that date, is not stated ; but the number of troops present for duty in the Department of lrginia was 4o,yb(i. Ihese, without doubt, were nearly all with General Uutler. Added to the Armv of the Poto mac, they make Ml),259. It was understood in Kichmoiid that, in addition to the num bers here given, General Grant was receiv ing heavy re-cnforcenicnts all through March, and it is known that toward the cloo of that month he was joined by Gene ral Sheridan with his splendid cavalry. Altogether, it bCeins tirobable that the force in front of Kichmond and Petersburg nearly approximate!, if it did noi reach, 200,000. lo meet this immense array General Lee could luiihter not more than -10,000 men. 1 he number surrendered liv mm is stated in the report as 27,S05; but we believe the number on dulv, with arms in their hands the morning .'("the day on which the sur render was made, did not reach 8,000. If it be said that -10,000 men behind such defen-i-es as had been constructed around this city, ought to have been able to resist 200,000, the reply is that the skillful maneuvering of General Grant compelled General Lcc to so extend Ins lines that his works were at no point suflicicnlly manned. Where his line w.-w firht broken the men stood ten or fifteen paces apart. yir. (ireeley ojjd tlie ttndlcnl Cabal. From tho National Intetlignuccr. c announced yesterday thatMr. Grcelcv, of the Tribune, was engaged in counselling the radicals m Congress to abate their haughty, not to say flighty pretensions. But without this positive information as to the course of tho parent of party abolitionism, there were signs on every hand, that to the experienced observer were confirmations, that the Kadical party was in the throes of a desperate labor. It is understood that the great argument of Mr. Greeley the one that goes right home is not humanitarian ism, nor yet liberty, equality, and fraternity, but the fact that tho. vuirlv would sim-lv be divided, and certainly defeated at the jkiIIs, unless the warfare against tho President ami his policy was not nt least abated, if not en tirely abandoned. Having ourselves iio feclintr of party, and nodisjsoi-ition except to support any Admin istration in a just policy, wc could have wished that Me. Greeley had exercised his large and comparatively unselfish influence to have prevented the evils that have liecn precipitated, to the peril of the nation, by the most completely concerted acts of what would seem a cabal that our history records. Mr. Greeley could hardly have been iinior- ant of the following facts : 1. That Mr. (olfax was to come here just alwnt as the President was to address Con gress and tho people upon the state of the Union, and do the unprecedented thing of fulminating views known to bo antagonistic to those of that high official. 2. I hat Slr.fctcvens would precipitate Ins, mot extraordinary, anti-constitutional, and destructive measure.- 3. That Mr. Sumner would, like a sorcer er, let in upon the arena of the Senate tho whole brood of tho hissing serpents of prac tical disunionism. 4. That a reverend clergyman the Chaj lain of the House would inject a political Kpeccli on a lay Sabbath, that, in its length and breadth, was inhumanly subversive of the teachings of Him of whom he is a pro-fesx-d disciple and follower. We repeat that Mr. Greeley, if he knew, in advance, of the proinisoil concerted de monstration, could have more easily defeat ed its designs by a thorough exposure of thi'ir mischievous and dangerous . objects, than to have awaited the result of their de velopment. We have used the word " mis chief;" but wickedness is often overruled for good. Bounding ambition overleaps itself. PcrhniM it were lietler that the con spiracy should go on to its bitter end. There are signs that such has been the effect. Ouvm WuKnr.i.L Hoi.mrs recently lec tured in New York city, on the " Poetry of tlw ar."

The U.t act has leen to retieal the law to prohibit and prevent rebellion.

It has repealed the law requiring, minivers to take a verv fctringent oath before thev can perform the rite of matrimony. This will bo excellent news to many of our clergy. A correspondent oflhc Cincmnali Enquirer writine from Toronto, Canada, gives the fol lowing interesting information concerning several Confederate officers : I met Gen, John Q. Breckinridge, Gen. McCausland, Colonel irarrVGillmore, Major John Castleman, Captain Hind, and others who had been officers in the armies of the Confederacy.

Croup is an in flammation ol the inner sarfacc of the wind pipe. Inflammation implies heat, and the heat must be subdued or the patient will in evitably die. If prompt efforts are made to cool tho parts in the case of an attack of the croup, relief will be as prompt as it is sur prising and delightful. All know that cool water applied to a hot skin cools it. but all do not know and understand that hot water applied to an inflamed skin will certainly cool it off. Hence the application of iced water with linen cloths, or almost hot water with woolen flannel, of two folds large enough to cover the whole throat and upper part ol the enest; put these in a pale of wa ter as hot as the hand can bear, and keep it thus hot by adding water from the boiling tea-kettle. Let two or three flannels be in hot water all the time, and one on the throat all the time, with a dry flannel covering the wet one so as to keep the heat in to some ex tent ; the flannels should not be so wet when nut on as to dribble, for it is important to keep the clothing dry, and keep up the pro cess until the phlegm is loose, the child easi er, and beginning to fall asleep , then gently wrap a flannel over the wet one which is on, so as to cover it up entirely, and the child is saved. When it wakes up both flannels will be dry. Hairs Journal of Health. A letter from Paris, dated the 29th tilt., says : "A celebrated character has arrived in Paris, the ex-Irish rebel John Mitchel. I have not seen him, but I am told that he looks extremely ill a consequence, partly. of his imprisonment, partly, it is said, of the severe domestic bereavement he has lately sustained. Apropos of Mitchel's presence here, it will bo in your recollection that he was released1 by the American President, at the instance of a Fenian deputation. Has he come over hero as a Head Centre? I cannot say. I own It would be rather curi ous if he were to meet in Paris escaped prisoner Stephens." Later advices gives a report of the arrival of Stephens at Paris after his escape from prison.

Either their private advices or our dispatches wcro in error, and tho improved tone of the market to-day would argue the former. Groceries. Tho tradcin this lino has been very active for tho week.

New York, Dec. 20. Times Washington dispatches says it is probable that the ap pointment of New York collector will be made this week, and the chances are in favor of Van Dyke, the present assistant treasurer with Mr. Conkling as his successor. The World's AVaihington special says that Capt. J. "V.. Vanderbiltof the 14th hifantry, cashiered recently, has been reinstated! The Tribunes "Washington dispatches says Gen. Carleton commanding the milita ry district of Mexico, lias been designated by the "War Department to command an ex pedition against that portion of the Apache Indians who have been for a long time hos tile to our Government. Gen. Mitchell has just been appointed secretary of New Mexi co by the President. New Y'ork, Dec. 20. The Tribunes Washingtondispatches contains the follow idg: Owing to the inefficiency of the force of Revenue Officers enployed on the Canadi an frontier for the collection of Customs smuggling is still carried on to a considera ble extent along the borders. The collector of Customs to-day 'read pcveral communica tions from officers stationed on the St. Law ranee, all of whom complain of a lack of force to thoroughly- execute the Revenue laws. In many instances officers have been personally assaulted by bands of smugglers while in the performance of their duties, and the communications recommend the posting of United States troops along the river, to aid in the detection of the Contraband traders. Another commissioner refers to the fact, that a large number of Canadian merchants arc engaged in swindling the gov ernment, by means of false invoices, thereby fradulently witholding from the govern ment a considerable amount of tax due under the general law. The Herald's Savannah correspondent, of the Sth, savs the late city election was con ducted witli great quietness. Affairs in the country present a gloomy feature. The coun try is represented as bare of provisions and the road nearly impassable. It is extremely difficult to induce "niggers" to labor for any length of time, continuously, and both they and the whites arc indulging freely in extensive marauding, thieving and other vjces. With the purpose of restoring order bands of selfstyled regulators have been formed, who are guilty of worse crimes than those they pretend to be engaged in suppres sing. Their shooting and hangings of ne groes arc of such common occurrence as scarcely to excite remark. Thanksgiving day was a dismal affair, the people not clear ly perceiving what they were to give thanks for. The late elections in Florida are repre sented as having been attended with much excitement and frequent disturbances be tween the citizens and colored troops. A special Washington dispatch to the Tribune says, a large gathering of citizens of Ohio convened in the Senate lobby, yester day, at 8 o'clock, Chief Justice Chase in the chair. General Schcnck in a few eloquent remarks touching the character of the de ceased, moved the appointment by the chair of a committee of five to draft resolu tions embodying the sentiments of his fellow- citizens of Ohio. Mr. Chase named Gener al Schenck, George Denison, Senator Sher man, General Hughes, and Representative Spaulding on said committee, who reported the lollowing: Jlcsoltvd, That wc have heard with deep est sorrow of the death of Thomas Corwin, of Ohio, a man whoc eminent abilities as a statesman in all the various positions of leg islator, governor of his State, Cabinet minis ter and diplomatist, whose surpassing elo quence and whose great services to the Gov ernment and people, secured for him a reputation broad as the whole country, while his personal wortli and character endeared him to all who ever enjoyed his society or his friendship. Iicsolred, That from a sincere desire to show a mark of respect due to his memory, wc will attend his funeral obsequies accom panying Ins remains when removed lor con veyance to Ills home, at such time as may be appointed. Jlesolved, That a committee of fire citizens be appointed by the chairman to make suit able arrangements for the occasion. Resolved That a copy of these resolutions be communicated by the chairman of this meeting to the widow and family of the de ceased, with the expression to them of our warmet sympathy and condolence with them in their creat bereavement. Col. Wet- more, Gen. Wood, Judge Jewett, Mr. Slade and Major John Coon were appointed a com mittee of arrangements. During the absence of the committee on rcsoliLsions, addresses were made eulogizing the deceased by Itev crdy Johnson and Senator Davis, Senator Sherman responded to the resolutions after their submission in a very feeling address Secretary Seward concluded in an earnest tribute to the worth and memory of the de ceased and craved no prouder distinction for his own name when dead than that which by universal accord will lie given Mr. Cor win as a humanitarian and patriot. Mr. Corwin's remains will leave here for Lebanon, Ohio, to-day, where they are to bo sepulchred. Ills son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Gage arrived yesterday mor ning, A special delegation of Ohioans will accompany the remains. Manchester, N. IT., Dec. 18.

The Cbmmcreiars Washington dispatch says : The President's action in restoring to the Southern States which havo adopted the constitutional amendment, the eniovmcnt of ali their con stitutional privilege, except representation in Congress. This paralyses the action of the Radical Republicans and prouuecs an intense interest. An exciting contest may Ixj expected, however, between some of .the radical and conservative supporters ol the President. Toronto. Dec. 20. Hon. Geo. W.

Western Republicans generally say they will not vote for an increase. New York, Dec 20. Havana advices of the 16th inst.j states that Gov. Zales, who was arrested in Havana as an accomplice in the Ortego murder, in .Brooklyn, has been released. New York. Dec. 20. Gen. Howard, in his official report, states that on entering up on the discharge of Ins duties he separated the Bureau into four division, one of lands, another of financial affairs, one of record, and the fourth a medical department; to each of these divisions he assigned an offi cer, and secured the requisite number of clerks by appointment and by detail from the ranks of the army. Before the organi zation of the Bureau freedmcn's afiairs had been entrusted to different officers of the Government thereby causing a diversity of svstem in different localities. A few As sistant Commissioners were appointed, and sent to different States to organize Bureaus, complete work already begun, and nettle questions of labor, just as far as safety of ef fort would allow ; procured a citizen and military officer for each district, comity and parish. The evident hostility of a portion of the citizen", and their ability in the ab sence of troops and civil law, to take the life of an agent, caused the extension of opera tions by an occasional inspection bv an offi cer in connection with a patrol. The Gen eral acknowledges the hearty support of most of the Department Commanders in .organ izing and carrying out plans of the Bureau. The tenure of the Bureau upon abandoned property U regarded the same as that jws-Msv-ed by an actual owner, except that caid projicrty may be restored by comjietcnt au thority to its former owner. A compara tively insignificant amount of property is used for quarter for teachers and officer connected with the Bureau and hospitals. With these exceptions, all property m the hands of the Bureau is held as a means of revenue by order of the President, Resto ration has progressed very rapidly, and it is probable that when the war terminates little or no propertywill remain under control of the Bureau. By this policy of restoration, the expectations of frecdmen that lands would be assigned them have been dis appointed, and mueh difficulty has arisen thereby, but has been overcome with com coraparative ease. Much embarrassment, much actual suflering has resulted for res toration of property in use. Much more will result from the curtailment of the Bu reau. If about one five hundredth of the amonnt of land in the insurrectionary States had oven been 1 d, and the plan of assigning it to frecdmen carried out, the Bureau would have been able to furnish an acre per family. Experience has shown, as a genera' rule, that it is better to leave the price of labor to be regulated by thedemand. "Schools have been established, but the hostility of the whitepcople to them is undisguised. Con gress, when it created the Bureau, made no appropriation to defray the expenses, but it has, however, received funds from mis cellaneouss sources to the amount of $478, 363. Deducting the amount held as re tained bounties, 115,236, and the bal ance on hand October 31st, 180o, avail able to meet liabilities is 5313,796. The amonnt hejd as claimants bounty is merely that the rights of the frecdmen-to rent and purchase real property, should be guaran teed to them beyond questicn. It is esti mated that the amount required for expen ditures of the bureau for the fiscal year, com mencing January, 1860, Jwill be 117,450 dollars. Fortress Monroe, Dec. 20. A fleet of upwards of 200 sailing vessels are in this harbor wind bound. A row took place in Norfolk vesterday be tween the 29th New York and the 30th U. S. Colored Infantry.
