Journal Building's , LOCUST STREET, BETWEEN FIRST AND WATER. FRIDAY OCTOBER 23 Explained. The Cincinnati Enquirer, of Sunday last, contains the following: "Two organizations in favor of the war and its prosecution cannot be kept up. They are clearly unnecessary. A contest between two factions, each in fa vor substantially of the same policy, is ridiculous." This is a more candid avowal than we had any reason to expect It is the rea son, in nuce, as Mr. Carlyle would say, of the whole Butternut movement The Louisville Democrat was a strong Union paper, until it lound that, by persever , i n Qirinrr ing in that course, it would be playing second fiddle to the Journal. The same is true of the Cincinnati Enquirer. It would have been for the vigorous prose cution of tha war, had not the other pa pers of that city taken that course and over-shadowed it By opposing the war it enlisted all the rebel sympathizers in its support and largely increased its cir culation and profits. Its proprietors would sacrifice tbe country to put money into their own pockets. Perhaps, how ever, they have seen from the start, that their efforts would amount to nothing and they laugh in thei: sleeves, while they pocket the hard earned savings of their dupes. Origin of the Monroe Doctrine. The United Statea and Cuba can Good Faith. Ameri. The Providence Journal prints a let ter, never before made public, from John ()uiney Adams to Rev. Dr. Channing, in which is contained a curious bit of secret history, showing the origin of what is called the " Monroe Doctrine." It will be seen by this letter that under the most trying circumstances and the severest temptations, the American government acted with the most sincere good faith toward a friendly power Spain and with the most open and frank courtesy toward t vo other powers, who were at the time our rivals for the possession of Cuba. It will be seen, too, that the agreement against Eurojiean intervention in Ameri can affairs, which afterward took shape and was formally announced as a policy by Mr. Monroe, in one of his annual messages whence the name of "Monroe Doctrine " had its origin in a sugges tion or proposition made by the British government to our own; go that English men may claim the credit of originating ! tne oeieoratea jvtonroe Lfoctnne. Qtrmcrr, Aug. 11,1837. Rev. William E. Channing, D. D., New port, R. I. : My Deak Sir It was in ; September, 1 822, that the events to which j I alluded in my speech in the House of i Representatives of the 2oth of May, 183G, ! took place. It was the time when the i Spanish Government of the Cortes was ! overthrown by the French invasion un der the Duke D'Angouleme. Great Brit ain became alarmed, lest under the shel ter of that revolution the Island of Cuba should pass into the possession of France. The French Governmemt fabricated or was imposed upon by a report that the British Cabinet had determined to send a squadron to take possesion of the island. The people of the Havana, di vided into parties between the Cortes and the king, were terrified by premoni tory symtoms of negro insurrection and looking round for a protector. There was a party for resorting to Great Brit ain, a party for adhering to Spain, and a party for seeking admission to the North American Union the last of which was strongest. A proposition was then made by a secret agent from them to Mr. Monroe to this effect that they by a popular movement, of the success of which they had no doubt, would de clare the Island independent of Spain if the Governmant of the United States would promise them protection and ad mit them into the Union under a State constitution, on the model of those of our Southern States, and with the un derstanding that as the population of the Island should increase they should be at liberty to divide themselves into two States, and have that proportion of rep resentatives in the Congress of the Uni ted States. As the inducement to the American Government to pledge their Drotection, they were assured that the alternative would probably be the prev: -lease of the party in the Island for the I colonial connection with Great Britain and a resort to her for protection, j While this proposition was under consid- ! oration of Mr. Monroe and his On-liinet. the French Minister at Washington, by a verbal, irresponsible, communication, not to the Secretary of btate, the only me dium of official intercourse between for eign Ministers and the Government of the United States, but to Mr. Crawford, the Secretary of the Treasury, assevera ted that the French Government had se cret but positive information that the British Government had deliberately de termined to take possession of Cuba. The answer ot Mr. Monroe to the pro position from the Havana was that the friendly relations existing between the United States and Spain did not permit them to promise countenance or protec tion to any insurrectional movement against her authority. Their advice to the people of Cuba was to adhere, as long as possible, to their allegiance to Spain that an attempt of either Great Britain or France to occupy the island would present the projiosal from the Havana under a different point of view, concern ing which the President was not author ized to pledge prospectively the action of the United States, but that the people of the Havana might be assured of the ! deep interest which, under all the cir ! cumstances which might occur, the American Government would take in their welfare and their wishes. It was the opinion of at least one mem- ber of Mr, Monroe's administration that the occupation of the Island of Cuba by Great Britain should be resisted even at the cost of a war. Their unanimous j opinion was that a very explicit though , confidential communication should be ! made to Mr. Canning, that the United j States could not see with indifference ; t the occupation of Cuba bv anv EuroDean -,L ,i, c 'j power outer tnau spam, ana that ru mors had reached the American Gov ernment that such an intention was en tertained by the British cabinet, which made it necessary to ask an explanation of their views. JVf OENING- EVANSVILLE, IND., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23 lSr3. Mr. Hush was instructed accordingly; Mr. Canning disavowed emphatically all intention on the part of Great Britain to take possession of the Island, but avow ed her determination not to see with in difference its occupation, either by France or by the United States, and he told Mr. Rush of, the squadron dispatched by Louis XYIII. to the West Indies, with out notifying him of the expedition, and of the schooling he had ordered the Brit ish Embassador at Paris to give the French Cabinet for that sin of omission. Mr. Canning then proposed that, by & mutual understanding between the Brit ish, French and American Governments, without any formal treaty or convention, Cuba should be left in the quiet posses sion of Spain, without interference in the government of the Island. This was precisely the policy which Mr. Monroe believed to be best adapted to the inter est and the duties of the United States, and he cheerfully assented to it There was no further communication between him and the French Government on the subject, and so far a8 France was con cerned, the arrangement was left to be concerted between her and Great Britain. The people of the island of Cuba sub- mitTArl tn tho (Inrarnmanl r.f Ur.A n n A regtore(j 1V the j)njfe d'Aneouleme, and w ... 0 ' received a Viceroy and Captain General in the person of General Vives, who had been Minister from Spain to the United States; one of the most upright and hon orable men with whom it has ever been my fortune to hold political relations. He was precisely the man to tranquilize and conciliate the submission of the peo ple of the islaad to their own Govern ment, and he so effectually accomplished that purpose that the Government of the United States heard nothing further of intended insurrection in Cuba during the remainder of Mr. Monroe's Administra tion and the whole of mine. All these transactions were at the time profoundly secret I am, - of course, your unalterable friend, J. Q. Adams. A Prophecy. Gen. B. F. Butler, in his speech at Oxford, Chester county, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday last, uttered the following predictions: But to me this contest has a nobler and a wider significance than who shall rule in Pennsylvania, In this contest is involved the very life of the nation, now engaged in a struggle which shall give her a proud name among the nations of the earth, or sink her deep among the depressed implements which in God's providence has failed to work out that destiny which seemed to be her glory. And why do I say to you that in the contest in Pennsylvania there is such an issue involved? Because, in my judg ment, if, to-day, the great State of New York, the great State of Ohio, and the Keynt..;ie of the Arch Pennsylvania should give back to the South the same sound that far-distant California has giv enthat Maine, too, has given, in their decided, firm, and outspoken majority not for party, but for country that in ninety days from date and I atn no will be ended. lirnnhAt I i,inliof t ,a .utu,ll,nn 1 Filling Up the Army. The Vallan digham press, with amgular unanimit v, are now calling on the Union men ii( Ohio to volunteer and fill up the ranks of the army. Do they think their oppo nents ought to furnish all the soldiers? It will be seen that about ninety-eight ou! of every one hundred now in the service are Union meu. The Vallandtgham men compose about three-eights of the home vote. Ought they not to furnish more than one-fiftieth of the army? Or do they, like their representative, Griffiths, confess that they have no in terest in the fight?" Let them till up their three-fifths of the army, before they call on Union men to do any more. If Lieut. Gov. Pugh could summon 200,000 Democrats to inaugurate civil war in Ohio, can he not furnish one-fifth that number to fight back rebel armies? To ledo Blade. The New Style of Lambs' Bonnets. Thursday last the prominent milliners of New York opened the sale of their fall stock of fashionable goods. It was what is called " opening day " and the ladies, it is stated, were out in unusually large numbers, in search of the latest style of bonnets. Some of them are thus described by a writer: " French styles are mo3t in vogue. The hih-topped, scuttle-shaped patterns are tabooed, and in their place we have something approaching the always neat and becoming cottage bonnet. Unpre tending straw, too, 13 gradually coming into favor again, to the exclusion of gaudy colors. The profusion of red and scarlet, which has been so conspicuous a feature all summer, has been succeed ed by a violet and vermillion and the dark colors; a change in perfect harmo ny with an improved taste. Misses' bonnets have a rose or a leaf of laurel, or a sprig of myrtle; "only that and nothing more." As to prices, these, as usual, take a wide range. Suffice it to say, that quotations vary from $5 up to $25(S '.$30. The latter, however, are in demand from ladies whose husbands or sweethearts liavu army 01 navy Con- j tracts." The Wounded on the Field of Bat tle. If any body thinks that when our men are stricken upon the field they fill the air with cries and groans, till it shivers with such evidences of agony, he greatly errs. An arm is shattered, a leg carried away, a bullet pierces the breast, and the soldier sinks down silently upon the ground, or creeps away, if he can, without a murmer or complaint; falls as the sparrow falls, speechlessly, and like that sparrow, I earnestly believe, falls not without the Father. The dying horse gives out his fearful utterance of almost human suffering, but the man gled rider is dumb. The crash of mus ketry, the crack of rifles, the roar of guns, the shriek of shells, the rebel whoop, the Federal cheer, and the inde scribable undertone of grinding, rum bling, splintering sound, make up the voices ot the battle held. Uor. Journal. wucuyu The figures o! the New York Tri- bune of Monday, on the Pennsylvania election, gave Curtm I.H,so majority. The official returns of twenty-seven coun ties are in the table yielding this majori ty. The figures of forty-six counties are i unofficial, but nearly accurate, and 'the full official count will not increase or di minish Curtin's majority more than a few hundred. The Union men will have a majority of one in the Senate, and eight in the House. The Union Victory in Iowa. The Union majority on the home vote is five , times greater than last year. We carry ' nearly every county in the State by the home vote, and the soldiers' vote will give us ninety-eight out of the ninety-nine ' counties.

The Louis, ville Journal, in its notice of the launch of this magnificent new steamer, gives some items of history connected with her christening, from which we give liberal extracts below: " She bears the name of one of the old pioneers of Louisville, a man identified with the youth and the more mature prcsperity of the city, and one who was, in his day, widely known as among the most enterprising of the business men of the West or Southwest We refer to the late John A. Tarascon. The boat of Messrs. Sherley, Wolfolk & Co., could not be named after a better man, nor one more worthy to be kept in remembrance by the merchants and steamboatmen of the West. John A. and Louis Tarascon, brothers. came to this country from France dur ing the troublous times that followed the beheading of Louis XVI. They were . compelled to flee heVe for safety. Louis had been somewhat prominent in the revolution, it being his nature to seek excitement and prominence, while John A. was always quiet, reserved, and never meddled with politics. They settled first in Philadelphiaf, and from about 1790 to lobO Louis was known as one of the largest shippers of that city. In 1800, the Tarascons established a shipyard at Pittsburg, under the agency of the well known Anthony Beeling. Here they built four large ships, each three masts and four hundred tens burden, which they loaded with American produce and despatched to Europe, the vessels start ing from Pittsburg, proceeding down the Ohio into the Mississippi, thence to the Gulf, and thence to Hamburg and other ports. When one of these vessels (either the Nanine or Tuscarora, we are uncer tain which) arrived at Hamburg and re ported herself, the authorities suspected something wrong, and declared there was no such port known as Pittsburg; but they were convinced of their error when the Captain procured a map of the United States, and running his finger along the Gulf to New Orleans, thence up the Mississippi and Ohio rivers, pointsd out the port of Pittsburg, which had sent this first commercial messenger direct from an inland American port to Europe, inaugurating a new era in the commerce of the world. But commer cial enterprises, like all others, have their reversions. So it was with this en terprise of the Tarascons, who, foresee ing the mighty commercial results which must follow the opening to the world of the trade of the Great West, had made this adventure, earnest in the trust that it was the inaugurative of a new era in the world's trade. These four vessels were, unfortunately, confiscated under the Berlin and Milan decrees, and were a total loss to Louis, who was principal owner in them. This bankrupted him, and thereafter the whole business of the brothers was conducted under the name and with the capital of John A. Taras c n. About the time of the establishment of the business at Pittsburg by Beeling, the ... . . . . ir o. i arascons also established at !?hi Wt, b-mw tins cty, a large , milling and uuiuuiciLiai uoir, uiuei uih v.c , g aim mpernsioli of James IL-rthood. A rew years thereafter, the Tarascons them selves settled at Shippingport, and soon became leading and influential men among the trade of this section. In all the transactions of this firm, the name of John A. Tarascon was known only on ' 'Change." He did business for many years in Louisville, was one of the larg est traders of his day, and at times really controlled the produce market of the West. The brothers Tarascon were men of strongly marked characters. John A,, was plain and unostentatious in man ners, sensitive, confiding, and generous, and withal a man of a nice sense of honor and most sterling integrity. Like all others of our early pioneers, the Ta rascons had their reverses. John A. in vested largely in the celebrated-"Yazoo Claim," and his losses were heavy. His energy and enterprise 60on overcame those losses, and he died in possession of a liandaoarM competence. The early works on the navigation of the Ohio and Mississippi, and Butler's Kentucky make honorable mention of the Tarascons, and give them a place among the distinguished pioneers of Western commerce. Messrs. Sherley, Wolfolk & Co. have done well to perpetu ate the name in their new and beautiful steamer. That she may have as pros perous a career as the illustrious mer chant and trader, whose name she bears, we most earnestly wish. Council Proceedings. Saturday Eve., Oct. 17, 1863.
