The Fredericksburg JTeroXd of Friday states
tht the Potonuc Is fall of transports, and that
Gen. Bnrnslde'j probable Intention la, to n
bark Ma arm j at A qui a Creek, and assail Rich
mond by the way of York or James rlrer. The
Richmond papen of Saturday credit this Intelli
gence of the Fredericksburg Herald, and adopt
Its Ideaa. These speculations of the rebels will
pass for what they are worth. ,
The pro-alarery men In ew York cily are
getting up a memorial to the President, calling
upon him to postpone all other moTements to
the grtot object of cruahing Gen, Leet army!
This means that they tremble at the advance of
the Union armies Into the cotton Btates, where
effective blows can be struck at the rebellion.
The country understand what this cry from
certain new quarters of, "On to Richmond"
means, No curer, says the old Spanish proverb,
If Urge enough to corer Itself.
Bee the 80 ot hern new from the Richmond
papers of Saturday, and especially Jeff. Dayls
order to execute ten United States officers, In
retaliation for the ten rebels shot in Missouri.
If this path Is once entered upon, the conse
quenres cannot be foreseen.
Our arrangements, In the editorial and repor
torlal departments of the Daily Xatlonat Re
publican, are now nearly completed, ao that we
can present to every reader In the morning, a
newspaper worthy of his perusal. We shall
let nothing worthy of note pass that it Is pos
ble to obtain In the shape of news, army Intel
ligence and Congressional -proceedings.
We shall have all the latest telegraph dis
patches that can be furnished by the Associated
Press reporters.
We have secured short-hand reporters, n ho
will furnish for our columns complete and oil
rsports of all Interesting debates In either house
of Congress, which we shall lay before the
reader In each Issue.
Having made these arrangements nt a large
additional expense, and on the ctc of the meet
Ingof Congress, ltls-proper for us to announce
tint we shall not fall one whit behind any of
our contemporaries In furnishing an entertain
ing and readable paper.
The Richmond newspapers argue that the
motives of jealousy and fear which have al
ways Induced the British Government to desire
the disruption of the American Union, must
hare derlred a new and greatly enlarged force
from the events of this war. If the people of
the two sections of the United States hare
themselves been surprised at the numbers of
the armies the) have been able to raise und
maintain In the field, and at the magnitude of
the financial burdens which they hate managed
to sustain, the effect produced abroad, where
our resources were less understood, mnst be
still greater. If England feared us before, she
must now still more dread to see ns again one
people. -A nation which has demonstrated the,
capacity to raise a million and a half of brave
poldlers, must be an object of terror to Fnro
pean statesmen, and they will nerer permit It
to be reconstituted In Us old unity. They in
defer Intervention for a season, but, In the end,
they will certainly take efficient measures In
make the disruption of the American Union
permanent. This, in substance, Is the reason
Ing of the rebels of Richmond. They ground
their hopes cf European aid upon foreign Jeal
ousy of the greatness and power of America,
They expect assistance because they are engaged
In an enterprise uhlch will subject this contl
nent to the same surveillance and control which
Europe exerts over Asia and Africa. Traitors
to America, they offer up their own country,
weakened and helpless by divisions, as a prey
to foreign despotisms, and they rely confident
ly that the temptation of such an offer will be
It Is thus, not merely against the liberty, but
against the independence of America, that these
men are conspirators. They base their chief
hope of success upon the fact that the object
they are seeking to effect, the disruption of the
Union, must be so heartily desired abroad, that
foreign aid will at last come to their assistance
In achieving it.
The time wlllcome, when the frenzy of the
the political passions which now rage shall
have subsided, that the people of the revolting
States will see and recoil from the horrors of
the abyss Into which these rebel conspirators
are willing to plunge them. The old feeling of
repugnance to European dictation will revive
even at the South, and it will be seen there that
no evil to be apprehended from union, can
compare with the degradation which would re
sult from dividing North America Into a num
ber of petty nationalities, to be played off
against each other by trans-atlautlc diplom
acy. The conspirators who hare been base
enough to count upon the desire of Great Brit
ain to destroy the power of America, will be re
garded, even by those who are now their dupes,
with the horror and detestation which such
treachery to all American Interests and tradi
tions ought to Inspire.
The Emancipation Proclamation. It la
been known to the country for sometime, that
a try decided pressure Is to be brought to bear
upon President Lincoln to procure a modifica
tion or abrogation of his proclamation of eman
cipation. The President understands fully the
origin and source of this extra and high-handed
mo ement, which was first suggested by the
New York Hcrull. and undertaken to be en
gineered through by that sapient toady of the
slave rower, John Van Burcn, backed by Fer
nando an I Ben Wood, and lion. James
The President understands these men. He
knows the character of their constituency, and
their efforts will bo futile. The besotted deni
zens of the Five Points, and the "corrupt
and corrupting" leaders of the slme democ
racy, do not yet rule the President nor the
Not bo Bad afteb All. The Washington I
correspondent of the New York Exprett has
discovered that Gov Chase has, after all, Rome
redeeming features about him, and Is not
quite the monster the Democratic papers have
represented him (o bo. This Is softeulng down
good deal. tllear this correspondent 1
"The national credit has maintained Itself
wonderfully thus far, and though he has, of
course, made some mistakes, Mr. Chase has,
on the whole, been a good minister of finance,
We can only wUh that his political views were
as sound."

The most unparalleled success knowu In the
history of projectiles took 'place near the navy
yard here yesterday, the particulars of which
will not be mads public. $
The gun used for this test was Capt. Dahl

for two years, and the result proves with what

We clip the following dispatch from the New
York Tribune, of the 7th Inst. The Inventor
of the projectile spoken of, and which has
proved to be so formidable and successful, Is a
brother of Col. E. Stafford, of the Second regi
ment Enrolled Missouri Militia, of this connty,
who spent the greater part of last Winter in

Brigadier General Patterson. The re
mains of Brigadier General Frank . Patterson,
late In command of the Third Brigade, Sickles
Division, were taken to Philadelphia on Satur
day evening. He shot himself with a pistol
through the heart, about 10 o'clock on Friday
morning, while laboring, It Is supposed, under
temporary aberration of the mind, he having
been very low-spirited and despondent for the
past two weeks. It will be remembered that his
brigade, at the advance to Warrenton, was
ordered to Catlett's station, where the enemy
appeared and, as erroneously supposed, In
force when he fell back with his command,
for which be nas censnred by Gen. Sickles.
This pre ed on his mind, and Is the only man
ner In which the lamentable affair can be
accounted for. He was a brave and popular
officer, much beloved by his command. The
brigade Is at present under the command of
Brigadier General Revere, late colonel of the
7th Sen Jersey volunteers.
