J Mr. VaUandigham's Speech. In tho Federal House of Representa tives, on tho 14tli, a scries of resolu tions were under consideration, declar ing the rebellion deliberately wicked and without reasonable excuse.; that the war was inaugurated solely for the suppression of the robe lion and the restoration of the Union as it wns; that the Union restored. the war s lould cense, and the seceding lutes' he re reived back into th' Union with all the privileges and immunities to which they were originally entitled when .Mr. Vallandijih'ani', of Ohio, made a speech' which stirred up the Abolition i o to a 1 ot'tv pitch.' We eo y a portion of his ivmarks, from the reports in the North' n papers: The (.iily difficulty in the wav of a reunion was the want of the will to re unite, and while the war lasted that would ' never exist. If the country were really tired of the war, and t lw iiiiiht the military experiment had been tried long (?nough,and enough of blood and treasure had been ex tended and mi cry inflicted on both, he would then propose this: Stop fighting j make nn armistice no formal treaty; with diaw your, army ;ironi the sceei ed .States; reduce bcth armies to a fair and niifficient peace establishment; declare .ji'bsnilute free trade between the North i rand South ; buy and sell ; agree upon a 7j ollverein ; recall your fleets ; break up your blockade ; , reduce your navy ; re Ktore travel ; open up the railroads; re ' bKbHh the telegraphs; reunite your vx press companies; make no more .Monitors and iron cla Is, but set your I friendly steamers and steamships ag:.in I in motion; visit' tho North and West; visit the South ; exchange newspapers; I migrate; intermarry ; let slavery alone; ij hold elections at the appointed times; I let us choose a new President in 1864 ; I and when tho gospel of peaco shall have I sounded again from heaven into.'thoir. I : hearts, and tho gospol of abolition and j bate been expelled, let your clergy and 1 tho churches m&et again in Christian intercourse, North and South, Let secret orders and volun tary associations everywhere' 'reunite as brethren once more.' ' In short,' give to all tho natural und all tho artificial causes which impel us together their fullest sway. . Let time do its offico in drying tears, dis pelling sorrow, mellowing passions, and making tho herbs, atd the grass and the trees to grow again upon tho, hun dred battle fields of this tenible war. He denied that this was a formal recog nition, to which, for obvious reasons, he would hot consent. It was informal recognition, and so was the exchange of prisoners, flags of truce, otc. If it ' confessed disunion, it was only as the surgeon who sets a fractured limb and heals it, admitting that it waa broken. It would notdo to say tho government would have failed to crush out the, re ibfellion:; It bad failed,and would always ifail. Neither outiht anybody to com plain that no one would bo hung; for nobody would be hung; though tho war lasted My years. But if nobody Was to bo hung, .then let the wrongdoers of the . administration rejoico and be ex- ceedingglad. Ho approved of media tion as. a means of suspending bostili- also of tho important lessons the war bad taught on both sides, in explaining anti-slavery errors, in proving tho strength of tho South, and in showing that slavery, instead of weakness, was power ; that the non-slavcholding white men of the South were the chief sup port of slavery, and that thero was no danger of servile -insurrections. . He said that the South had learned, too? that personal courago is a quality com,, raon to all sections, and that in -battle tho men of the Noith, and especially of tho West, were their equals. Twenty months of war had corrected many errors, and taught us tho wisdom of a century; and if we would only reunite, tho Union would bo stronger and moro durable than ever. Ho expressed his readiness- to yield personal interests and tho rnoro material rewards of am bition just now to the future good of tho countiy. Whoever believed the war would restore this Union ; whoever was tor war for toe abolition of slavery or 'for disunion: whoever demanded Southern independence and final sepa ration, ; would not be satisfied with what he said 1 But ho had always been f r tho Union, and would not now sur render it. In youth ho had desired to live to sco tho hundredth anniversary of American independence, and hear our orators exult in the growing glories ai'd greatness of the still United States, lie hoped tor it still sooner, if possible. In any event, let that day be the day f the great restoration. We were in t'ne midst ot tho crisis of the revolution, if wo, secured peace now and began reunion, all would bj well. It not.he saw nothing bcf.ro us but revolution .ind anarchy. "A Little Mare Grapj. " By confession of the enemy, Gon. Brags iuflictod as much damage upon the Yankees as they have probably suffered in any other battle o the war. Tho slaughter was terrific. That he was not totally routed was probably owing to his vast preponderance of numbers. Alter all, in view of the terrible havoc which the enemy suffer ed, and Bragg' s successful taking off of all lie ha1 captured, the falling back of Gen. Bragg is not without alleviation, lie has taken . away all the prisoners and all the guns he has capturol, and is now ready to give tho enemy, if he chooses to attack him "a little more grape." The " taking off" of everything he captures is a peculiarity of this Gener al, for which he deserves some credit, lie captured an immense quantity of supplies in Kentucky, ano took them off safelv. Ho captured four thousand men, .twenty-four cannon, and five thousand stand of smad arms at Mur frcesboro, and took thcra off also. ' Wo shall not bo surprised if tho Yankees, in view of the spods he is always deliv ering them of, should designate him the-Cossack of tho South. In !that event, we would respectfully suggest that they erivo him the name of (Geni Tocksmott. This is a vervgood.Kus sian name, and it has the advantage of describing the General s nocnl'ar genius. YVe trust that ho may 'con tinue to merit tho title, and take off guns and Yankees till tho end of the why. Richmond Dispatch. . Lt. Gen. Leonidas Folic arrived in Chattanooga the other day from the old North State. No fears now, we reckon, of tho Bushwhackers getting held of him, but a fine likelihood tho other way. "" :;' A correspondent, of , the Cincinnati Gazotte, writing from Rosocrans' army, in describing Breckinridge's charge on the 31st December, says:: "If . utter madness can bo called bravery, then in deed were these rebels brave." . By the fall of Arkansas Post tho fine cotton region of Arkansas yal Iy is left to bo" ravaged by the Yankees. .; The Army of the Potomac. , .A correspondent of the New York Times, speculating upon the army of tho Potomac, and what is to be do-nc with it, gives a very unpromising con dition of its spirit at presentand tho causes of its oppression. Ho says: ..." Sad, sad it is to look at this superb army of tho Potomac,tho match of wuich no conqueror ever led this incompar able army, fit to perform tho mission the - country has imposed upon it paralyzed, petrified, put tindora blight and spell; and on tho other hand the noble nation, bleeding to death and pouring out tho rich wine of its life in vain. . - " But tho root of tho matter is a dis trust of thogoncral conduct and order ing of things. They feel that things are aL loose ends in fact they unow it, for our army is one that roads and thinks.1 This spirit of discontent is augmented by many causes of a special nature, irov cxamplo : 1. They have not for several months been paid. Shameful and inexousablo in tho Gov ernment! 2. Tho stagnation, ennui, disgust, suffering, sickness and discom fort ot clmp life in winter, (without quarters) amid Virginia mud, cold and rain. 'No small hardships I can assure you, and , it is doubtful if any regular European army ever had to submit to equally great ones. a. General feel ing of despondency resulting from mis management and our want of military success. Soldiers aro severo critic, and arc not to be bamboozled. You may marshal your array of victories in glittering editorials they smile sarcastically at them. You see men who toll you that they have been in a dozen battles and were licked and chased every time they would like- to chase once to see how it " feels. " This begins to tell painfully on them. Their splcn lid qualities their patience, faith, hope, courage, are gradually oozing oat. Certainly never wcro a graver, gloomier more sober, sombre, serious and unmusical body of men than the Army ot tho Potomac at the present time, lt is a saddening contrast with a year ago. " From over the Border. If wo could listen to tho titles brought from Yankeedoodledom by blockade runners, wo might expect a general smash-up down East an early day. One gentleman of this class, lately ar rived, predicts peaco in sixty days, and thereafter and very speedily an indis criminate throat-cutting throughout Yankcedom. lie reports their finan ces as irretrievably ruined their army as hopelessly demoralized, and only kept togother until they can got their bade pay, and discord and confusion lampant throughout tho land. Tho tale is cheering ; hut it must bo receiv ed curi grano salis, and, at any rate, wo must not permit it to influenco our ac tion in the least. We may make it true by wise and vigorous measures.- Mich mond Whig.-. Leather as a Small-Pox Disinfec tant. The'shavings or scraps of leath er burned in localities infected by tho small -pox, is said to bo a sure disinfec tant against this disease. The rccipo comes from an old phisician, whose practice has been largely among small pox patients for tho last thirty years, and who, in all -that time, was novcr callod upon to treat for small-pox. a workman in leather, cither ag a shoe maker or tanner. Tho thepry, has been put in-practice at Castlo Thunder with vety good suc cess, no cases having occurred since the burning commenced. The remedy is simple, and within the reach of every one, and is certainly, worth a trial. ; ' Gen.' Joseph E. Jonston roturned to this city a few nights since. Hoox. presses himself as perfectly satisfied with the condition of aftairs in Missis sippi, and ho speaks hopefully and cheerfully of tho cause everywhere. Chattanooga Jiebel. EXPRESSLY FOR THE DAILY P.UI.I.iniN .'-RICHMOND :28. Thero has been a continuous fail f sr.ow all day. Advices from . Fredericksburg report all quiet. Tho tompostuous weather has probably disconcerted the enemy's plans and defeated his programme for the capturo of PJchmond and Wilming ton. Gen. Lee would have defeated it if tho weather hadn't, wo opine. Tho enemy will not bo ablo to accomplish anything in Northern Virginia or East ern North Carolina this winter. PvIClMOND, Jan. 28. Brigadier Gen. Jubal A. Early has been made Maj. General and placed in command of Ewoll's old Division. Btig. Gen. Trimble mado Maj. Gon. and placed over Jackson's old Division. Snow falling hero steadily this mern ing. Tho streets and roads in an awfu 1 condition, and it is impossible for Burn- side to advanco at present. Yankee Finances. The high prices of gold in tho North is. an infallible sign that thero is a growing sense of the utter hopeless ness'of subjugating the South. The Yankee merchants must loso the dif ference in all their foreign transac tions, while it will como upon tho peo ple in the exorbitant prices for all the necessaries of life There is a great difference on this score between them and ns; the)' are our assailants : we are the assailed. A people struggling for liberty will cheerfully submit to any .sacrifice rather than j-icld to conquer ors, while those who are fighting for dominion .vill be more apt to calculate tho cost of a war waged upon so gigan tic a rici'ilo as that which now afflicts this continent, especially when facts demonstrate that every effort mado by tho assailants only drifts them further from their cherished object. Wo con clude, therefore, that there is no doubt that tho Lincoln dynasty will continue to encounter moro serious difficulties in tho derangement of its finances On the commercial relations of the North, the effects aro too plain to require com ment. But tho Yankee nation is an anomaly, and thero is no such thing as telling what they will probably do under any set of given circumstances. Selma Ala.) Reporter. Treatment of Negroes at Port Royal. The Puchmond correspondent of the Charleston Mercury says : 1 have before me a copy of Saxton's General Ordor to the helots at Port Eoyal. It is pretty tough. Tho poor wretches have their freedom secured to them with a vengeance. All of them, even down to the children, are com pelled to work. To "each working hand " is allottod " one acre and two tasks for corn ; ono quarter task for potatoes.'" A task is a quartor of an acre. In exchange for tho government land's, etc., the negroes (this is the offi cial language not " our coiorca oroin rcn ") are to plant and cultivate, in ad dition to tho above allotment, six acres each for every mule or horse belong in" to the plantation or tho superinten dent; ono for tho superintendent him self; ono and a half for tho ploughman, and one aero for overy old or disabled person:" ' Besides this, tho negroes aro compelled to furnish the manure used in cultivating the various acres allotted to them. Utopia is colonized at last. ...... Tennessee Legislature. Richmond Jan. 24th. Tho representatives in Congress from Tennessco have united in the recommendation to Governor Harris to convene the Legislature of I that State.
