tlOW THE COPPERHEADS LOVE THE
Soldiers. J. T. Kenny, a Copperhead
an . .1 M i- s
senator in trie unio Legislature, in a
speech the other day, said : " I am
doubt1:! who stole the most, Morgan or
the contemptible thieves tcho were after
him." That is the Copperhead view of
soldiers fighting for the maintenance of
the Government and the defense of our
homes.
Telegraphic communication with
Chattanooga has been resumed. News
from that quarter indicates that warm
work will commence soon if Bragg does
not retreat before the Union army gets
fully ready to attack him. The re
port regarding the strength of Bragg' s
army, in Saturday's papers, telegraphed
west from New York, is regarded as
mere sensational speculations.
Juvenile Homicide. In Terre Haute,
a few days ago, Master Callings called
Master Brown a liar, and Master B. shot
him dead instantly and was immediately
acquitted on the plea of justifiable homi
cide! Louisville Journal.
Master Collings (not Callings) has
practiced medicine for ten years at least,
and Master Brown has served a year or
more as an officer in the Union army,
and that was his great offense. The
homicide was not so juvenile as we have
heard of.
"The New York papers of Wednes
day inform us that the Court of Appeals
of New York has affirmed the constitu
tionality and validity of the act of Con
gress which makes certain treasury notes
a legal tender. Of the eight Judges two
only dissented, but upon what grounds is
not stated. This decision may be con
sidered as going very far to the final set
tlement of the question in regard to
the power of Congress in the premises.
Another Call for Troops in Virgin
ia. Gov. Letcher, of Virginia, has is
sued a proclamation calling for volun
teers " to protect our citizens and repel
invasion, " under an act passed by the
Legislature of Virginia on the 28th ult.
The proclamation says:
" This force is composed of nersons
not liable to conscription by the Confed
erate authorities, and to be officered by
those now in the service of that Govern
ment They are to be called out for a
term of service not exceeding sixty days
any one time; are to be organized,
armed and equipped as State troops, and
to be paid as such when called into the
field under any Executive order."
High Prices in Richmond, Virginia-
There is a great deal of suffering in
Richmond for the necessaries of life.
Bacon is quoted in the Sentinel at $2
50 per lb. ; coffee, $7 50 to 8 per lb. ;
flour, $40 to 45 per bbl. ; wheat, $5 to 6
per bushel; sugar $2 80 to 3 per rb. ; mo
lasses, $ 14 to 15 per gallon; and other
necessary articles at equally high rates.
Gold $10 to 12 premium.
Compliments from their Own Au
thors. The Richmond Examiner thus
compliments the Southern troops after
victory:
The Generals of the United States
know well that none of their troops,
whether Eastern or Western, can sustain
with success the first onset of a Southern
army. But if they can protract the con
test and retreat without a rout till they
reach their reserves, they usnallv win
at last. Why? Because the Southern
army becomes a mob after a victory.
Generate and troops give way to exhil
eration proper to school boys. The men
straggle, officers drink, and all brag of
the wonders done by our division.
Hence it is that none of the Southern
leaders have been able to secure the
fruits of victory.
Gov. Bramlette has determined
that the guerrillas shall be routed from
the State, and the General Order of Ad
jutant General Boyle, which we publish
this morning, will bring every lukewarm
Eentuckian to a vivid sense of his duty.
Unless at least one company is raised in
each county iu the State by the 24th of
this month, a draft will be immediately
enforced. The Governor says " the
State shall be free from its murderous
foes, even though every arm is required
to aid in their destruction." Fellow citi
zens, go to work now in earnest Let
us have another State Gnard Legion
filled up in our city, and let the cross of
lire be sent to every hill and valley to
awaken a proper response to the glorious
rallying call of our Governor. Louis

This loss is larger than that of all the
balance of the regiment. I had the
good luck to escape, but the bad luck to
have my canteen shot through with a
musket ball and the water spilled, my
coat and pants both pierced with bullets,
and our company flag, which I had
taken from the bearer, rendered entirely
unserviceable. Lieut. Taylor, command
ing Co. I, was slightly wounded, and
Capt. Hammond, of the Pike county
company, was made as crazy as a bed
bug for a few hours, by the explosion of
a shell in rather close proximitv.
My health is excellent, but my com
pany is reduced from ninety to about
sixty men for duty. If you knew how
we long for paper.s and letters, you would
send them often. H
The Invalid Corps.
Seventeen regiments have already
been formed for the Invalid Corps. It is
divided into two battalious. The first
battalion is composed of men selected
from the active armies, who, by reason of
lung or heart disease, rupture, chronic
diarrhcea, dysentery, or other similar dis
eases, cannot endure the fatigues and
exposure of an active campaign, but
who can be fully sheltered and have their
ailment properly treated. They are in
tended to man fort and garrisons; to
perform the Provost duty in large towns
and cities; to guard prisoners, not only
in the priso.is, but on cars and steam-
Doats, ana on me marcn 10 ana irom
their place of imprisonment, and to pro
tect and defend railroad bridges and de
pots in the vicinity of their, the Inva
lids', respective stations. These men all
pass a rigid medical examination, and
are taken from those who are unfit for
further field service, and not liable to
draft
The second battalion is composed of
officers and men who have lost a leg or
an arm in battle, or are so disabled by
disease or wounds contracted in the line
of duty, as to be not only unfit for field
service, but also for duty in the first bat
talion. These men are assigned as stew
ards, nurses, cooks, and guards at hospi
tals, and as clerks at depots, and in pub
lic offices.
As it is designed to make the Invalid
Corps a ' Corps of Honor," none but
men who have seen active service, and
have been ''honorably discharged," are
permitted to enlist in " it. The pay will
be ihe same as to other soldiers. The
labors performed by these men have
heretofore been performed by able bodi
ed troops who will no w be sent to the
field.
There are two companies of this corps
in this city. Lieut Dickerson is in com
mand, and Lieut. De La Hunt is Post
Adjutant.
The Front. News from the front
continues provokingly meagre, but we
suppose that the silence which prevails
inaicates active preparations on both
sides for another battle. The rebels
have planted some heavy siege guns on
Lookout mountain, and are throwing
occasional shots into our camps, with
out doing any great damage. They will
hardly be suffered to monopolize that
business, and some substantial answers
will probably be heard and felt among
our " misguidfB brethren " very Boon.

Washington, Oct. 12. The enemy
near Chattanooga hold Lookout moun
tain and Mission Ridge, from which they
threw shells on the 4th and 5?h inst.
No damage done beyond wounding a
few men and killing one horse. We
have several line3 of entrenchments and
extensive earth-works are still going on.
The plan of the enemy appeirs not to
make an attack in front, but to compel
us to abandon Chattanooga, by hom
ing us in our present position with their
army in front annoying us, with their ar
tillery breaking our lines of communi
cations by cavalry raids, on our rear.
A general order issued on the 7h an
nounces Major General Reynolds as
Chief of Stan", in place of General Gar
field, who vacates his position to assume
his seat in ongress.
All the i visions of the army will be
consolidate ! into six to form the 14th
and 4th co; 9, with General's Thomas
and Grangi i as commanders.
The three under the former will he
commanded by Generals Laird, Davis,
and Rousseau, and those under the lat
ter by Generals Wood, Sherriden, and
Palmer. Gen. Brennan will be t'hiel of
Artillery.
Gen. Rosecrans denies positively to
have brought any charges against Mc
Cook and Crit:enden. It is generally
believed these officers will show a much
better record than report3 in regard to
them warrant With the assistance of
1 reinforcements already arrived, move
ments will, soon be made, it is hoped,
which will drive the enemy from our
front. The army is still well supplied
with everything but clothing and blank-
ets--the want of which in this unusually
! cold weather causes considerable suf-
: fering. All the wounded able to bear j
! removal have been sent North. The
I casualties in the late battles will not lie
less than 15,000.

Another Cavalry Fight - Our forees
driven back Meade's army retreat
ingThe Rebel! executing a flank
movement.
Special to the Times.
Washington, October 12. Early Sat
urday a brigade of cavalry belonging to
Kilpatrick's division, attempted a recou
noissanee on the south side of Robert
son's river. They were attacked by a
large force of rebel cavalry, supported
by infantry and artillery under the com
mand of Stuart The infantry was com
posed of about 8000 men. A brisk fight
ensued, lasting about an hour, when our
cavalry were compelled to fall back on
our infantry supports, three miles from
Culpepper. At this place another con
flict ensued, in which our infantry sup
ports were compelled to retire, losing
about 100 of the 130th New York. Our
cavalry again formed Into line and made
a splendid charge and re-captured all the
men except 15 or 20. Rebel reinforce
ments coming up, our forces were push
ed back to Culpepper, skirmishing all
the way. Heavy firing this afternoon in
dicates that the engagement had been
renewed.
Later intelligence from the front says
o-r fonooi toro fvnriiatprl Onlperiripr nnd
such stores as could not be conveniently
carried were burned. Their value, how
ever, was trifling.
It is reported that Gen. Meade has
fallen back to the north bank of the Rap
pahannock. rrisoners brought back state that
Lougstreet's corps has retarned from tbe
South-west. This, however, is doubted.
The rebels commenced crossing the Rap
pahannock Saturday morning in the di
rection of Madison Court House, with
the evident intention of turning General
Meade's right wing. Heavy reinforce
ments have been sent to the front
It is reported that the rebel cavalry
held the Gaps in Bull Run mountains.
A large cavalry force was sent from
here yesterday, who will speedily dis
lodge them. The rebel forces holding
the gaps are supposed to be White's
and Moseby's men.

FBOM MISSOURI.
Gov. Gamble Issues a Proclamation
He Maketh Divers Threats Blunt
has Cleared his Track.
St. Louis, Oct 13. Gov. Gamble has
issued a long proclamation, charging that
many evil disposed persons are endea
voring to produce disaffection towards the
State Government with the avowed pur
pose of overthrowing it by violence,
should other means fail.
Among this class of persons are some
holding commissions from the State
Government, and to effect this scheme
the circulation of the most extraordinary
falsehoods and misrepresentations re
garding the purposes of the State Gov
ernment are resorted to.
He puts the people of the State on their
guard against the plots of these canspir
ators, and announces his determination
to use all the force at his command to
enforce the laws, preserve the peace of
the State, and to punish those who dis
turb it He also admonishes them that
the highest political right of the citizens
to vote at elections, any interference
especially by the military with the rights
of qualified voters, will be regarded as
an offense of the greatest magnitude.
Tha Governor makes a lengthy de
fence of his own loyalty, and vindicates
the State Government against the accu
sations of its enemies.
The Democrat s Leavenworth special
says Gen. Blunt has scouted the country
east and south of Fort Blair and satisfied
himself that the enemy has gone South.
He followed them to a point thirty miles
from Fort Gibson, where he sent messen
gers to warn the garrison of that place
and Fort Smith.
Blunt is now returning to Fort Scott.
Major Henning arrived from Baxter
Springs with the bodies of Major Curtis
and Lieut. Farr. Of eighty prisoners
taken by the rebels fifty-five were murj
dered after their capture.

IRITTENB'RG HAS NOW ON HANDS A
. splendid assortment of Optical Instruments,
which he will ilisi.os of at greatly reduced
prices; hit goods being all of the very latest im
Drovements in manufacture, consisting of a very
large variety of Spectacles frontbe mot common
to the very best, viz : The finest quality of Gold
pectacles, these Glasses being constructed on the
most accurate adaptation of tbe Convex Concsvo
Pariscopic principles. Also, Silver of three dif
ferent grades of Glasses, No. 1 being on tbe same
principle as the Gold Spectacles. No 2 is a Peri
focal Lense ; No. ' being a fine Achromatic Lens t,
mirror shape.
In addition to the shove I have a fine assort
ment of Steel, of the very best quality of Lenses,
tbe frames being grooved into the Glasses. The
frames are so fine as to be scarcely visible. No. 2
of steel is Perifocal No. 3 the globules of a
smoked Lense, adapted for weak sight where
strong light, snow or wind affects the vision.
These Spectacles are a perfect preventative by use
Ing them constantly, causing the eye to gain its
healthy power and retain it to old age.
Having Jiad very considerable experience also iu
cateract eyes, in adapting glasses 1o such i-ion,
would impress on the minds of all peranv. etd
iugglasses of any descriptor". .. apply s : uch
only to a regular Optician, i, l iking that sole
study and business for years, he alone bei.. able
to know from the peculiar anatomy or the i. e the
nature of the defect, whether arising from weak
ness of s!ght, flattening of the pupil, or other
misfortune occurring to the vision. The eye be
ing the most delicate organ, and of the most vital
Importance to the happiness and prosperity of
man, should never be tampered with, either by
the individual or by those who, for mere profit,
take upon themselves the selling of Optical In
struments, and who know nothing of the anatomy
of theeye, orhow to discover tberoper glasses to
suit the peculiarity oi the different sights of those
needing spectacles. Thousands have lost their
vision entirely from not applying to those only
qualified to know the different defects in each in
dividual's sight, and how to remedy it by wearing
the proper kind of spectacles. I. Bittenberg,
having had over twenty-five years experience as a
regular practical optician, can assure those giving
him their patronage that by applying to him tbey
can get the very right kind of glasses adapted to
their rase, and in almost every one secure good
eye sight to old age. Neir sighted person can
also obtain of him tbe latest improvement iu
spectacles suited to them, being a new invention.
1 have also the most recently new Field Glasses,
with Astromical eye pieces, being very superior
to the old opera glass arrangement. All kinds M

and having had the misfortune to broak one of the
