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.

From tho Richmond Whig.)
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.

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. GcneralBrcckinridgo looks

Treatment op Cnour. 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.

day, with aslight improvement in prices, and may
be quoted at3940c.
AVcobscrve someof our city contemporaries, in
their last commercial reports, speak of tho down
ward tendencyof tho market "underdiseouraging
adwecs from New York," while the dispatches
from New York to the associated press of tho
samo date speak of cotton as "firmer and in better
demand." Either their private advices or our
dispatches wcro in error, and tho improved tone
of the market to-day would argue the former.

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

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

Mr. and Mrs. Gage arrived yesterday mor

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.

ator Spraguc has started a movement in the
Senate looking to an increase of tariff on all
goods that can be manufactured in this

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.
