RICHMOND WHIG.
CAN OCR GOVERN MENT SAFELY RELY ON EU
ROPEAN AID ?
To (hi A'Jitor rf (hi Whig. .
The three great powers of Europe are England, France
and Russia. They are rivals io manufacture" and com
merce, and mutually jealous of tach other. The tradi
tionary policy of Russia hat besn to obta'n popscfiion of
the Daidantlles, as a means of extending her foreign
commerce, and competing with England for the trade of
India. It was jealousy of the progress of Russia that
caused Protestant England aud Catholic Fr taco to undo
in the Crimean war, in defence of the unbelieving Turk.
It was the same jealousy which made them nil,re In tin
war upon Chiua, for, shut out from the Mediterranean by
the treaty of Parfc, Rus-ia made her approach to China
aud the Pacific, by way it the Ainoor river. It was
eeon by England and France that, if permitted to mo
nopolue the trade with the redundant population of
Chiua, that trade wouid soon so in creese her wealth sud
resources, as to give Russia a preponderating influence,
and, therefore, England aud France nnited in the war
upon China, and compelled China not only to open her
ports to trade with England and France, but also to per
mit them to take from China laborers to be employed as
•laves iu Australia and Algeria.
Tho purpose of England and France being to increu e
the consumption of manufactures, the products of their
machinery, the command of the trade with China is with
each a matter of primary importance. The use of rail
ways across the American continent, is to the European
trade with China, what the discovery ot the cotton gin,
tho spimriog jenny aud the power loom have beeu to
manufacture of textile fabric* ; aud the British posset
pious, < landing front the mouth of the S’, Lawrence to
Puget's Sound, and the latge investment o( British capi
tal in railroads in Canada and in the Northwestern
States, have created an interest iu England in favor of
extending that line of railways to tho Pacific, of such
weight and influence, as, it is to bn feared, will control
tho measures and policy of KuglauJ, so as to prevent
any act of that government wl.ith may eudanger the
control which Englaud seeks to i burin over the trade of
China aud the Pscifio, by raratis of her control over the
raitrnnl cAmiunriioAtinn linlwmn Canada and the i'a
ciflc.
la addition to tlii-*, a desire (o stimulate the growth ot
eotloo in Iudia, iu Airier, Australia and South America,
baa become a ruliog idea with an influential political and
commercialnntmst in England. Has tbo 8outh any snf
fleieut giounds to justify a hope for British inti rpoaitioi
inlhsir behalf ? I think not.
Fiance, on the contrary, has everyth!: g to gain by
prompt and derisive action iu our behalf, France is th*
rival as well as the ally ot England. She desires a navy,
a steam navy. Fiance and the Confederate States, unit
ed, can and would contrd the commercial and political
destinies of the world. Would F.ngland tako l**r‘
the Vcden I Sutes, if FraueS) were 10 take part with lb«
Confederate Stater • Woul'J Bright and Oobden aban
don the peace party, w hen the tfljct would be to com
pel the South to consume Ysukee manufactures. and to
pay high duties on British goods? Wcn’d not England
rather exert her it fluecce to induce Ohio, Iudiana, Illi
nois aud the Northwest U> secede and form a separab
Confederacy, leaving Pennsylvania, New Yotk and New
England the old government and the na» debt? E g
land wi uld thus secure lier northern rail route to the
Pac fic; s'16 would, iu a great measure, monopolize the
carrying trade ot the Northwest and the Psc-fi *, and
would compete with France for the friendship and con -
ounce of the Confederate States.
There is ato'her aspect of tliia question. It is this:
It uiay l»e that neither France nor F.ngland will a d u°o—
How can we meet such a contingency ? Of this In my
next. ____N<
THE ARMY MEDICAL BOARD.
Jo the Editor of Iht 1 n>g
Having noticed, with much pleasure, a commnnica
tioo of ours in one of your Into issues, upon this si b
ject, we would ask the privilege of again inserting a rim
liar communication, beiuj^ tiow, as then, entirely ad
verse to impugning the good niotites and enn-cientic:*-■
■cruplts of tuy iudividntl or sot of individittls; tu
when we see decisions, rueb as have been mado by tl.oei
who now constitute tbo Army Me-lical Board, so pal
pably wjHtt as tiiey ar> and in themselves *o errant w
and yiriial,me feel Called upoo once more, iu bchaf
of those unfortuuate 'nutlrncn, who, though meiito
rious and beret* lure ie. • cted and admin d for their mud
cal ability, to lav what we think, aid, with Macbeth
*' Damn'd be he who first cries, told, enough !
We had hoped that the abolition of this vert/ import
•tit item iu the pood tnanagenent and proper organ i'.
lion of the OoDftdsrate Aimy would long si ce hav
been < fleeted; but we have hoped iu vaiu. Like thi
w toden nttharg ,and title JutItatnt of the Vaokoe, thi
(overt ment has, as yet. traced no "line e) demat it
lion," aud, exercising that well lm»« rredttUlv pcculia
a'ways to the Soul , still allows it “/ > pan mutter"—
I 1 Ollier worm, u <i..iira useu wuu u uuajDUg ami ui
imposition, so long is tbero is no serious iuterferenc
with its own 8uccf»<lul operations.
Iu this, howi ver, it is mistaken. 1.10k back upon on
forces when they fint went upon the ‘‘tented Held.’ ii
proud defiance of Northern deepotism, to maiutain tbei
rights, aud protect their homes—when, like uohle mar
l) rs if a coble cause, they took their stand to live or di.
in deteucc of Southern liberty, and Southern safety.—
I<ook at them now ' Not panic-stricken by the enemy—
unt i objects of (suiiuo and want—not killed by Vat kei
bullets—they have died miserable donths, through ig
norsuce and pretension on the part of the Medical Stal
of the Confederate Stiles.
Wa do not asy but that there are acme good pbysi
clans connected with the army—men who «ro eminent!
skilled iu their profession, and consclentiona and dill
gent in the p°rformatice ol their duties; but we reite
rue wbat we have said above, that there are a good'
number of quacks, whose pills and p'aiters have pro
duced au alarming fatality, not equalled by the unite,
hoata of McClellan, Scott and K.s-icrans; and who, fo
Iho privilege of stir king "M. 8" on their hats, and altri
wards killing a man eeeundem ar'em, would pty fhrir mos
devout homage to this tutembloge of learned d rtor«
and conaider thier position an ampin comp* oration. W
know of such cases, e!-e we should cot speak ul them
Thus, wo charge it upon the Army Medical Buarti
that a great portion of the scfl,Tings, misery and deat
aiiataii.ed by our forces, is due to its decisions, iotluence
as it is bv the wealth and lineage of the candidate bin
se'f, n»d by their own politic >1 preferment. 8nch
oursv is too well knowu to tho public, to need fnrthe
co nmeot. We, therefore, would say in conclutiin, the
hereafter, let your motto b>, ptlmtim <jai meruit fera
and "all w.ll be well that ends well.''
JUSTICE.
THIS CONGRESSIONAL DI3TRIJT.
Jo the Editor of the Whig:
A few words on the ponding election for Congreia i
this district may not ba amiss. Several competitors at
oontes log for the position, acd, amoug them, the pr*
sent worthy incumbent, Mr. Masfsrland. It is rot n<
cseeary to say anything of his fitness lor the place or <
tbs devotion with which, if eieoted, he would discharg
bis trust As • man of ability and a faithful represent!
live, he is known to «H the voters of the dittrich It i»
to another fact that 1 would call attention. So far In tit
election of members of Congress, it has »o happened that
but few cld Whigs has been returned Whether by ao
cidcat or dci’gu this disagreeable result bal oeoerrod,
and that it should continually cc.nr is not the way to har
monise fasi feudj and exorcise party spirit. The R ch
moud dmirio', viewed from the stand point of old haute,
•a largely Whig, and it w-mld look but fair and j ist that
ft gentleman connected with that ancient party ateoria
fiou should hi elected to Congross, esp cially, when u
th> candidate is presented a union of h) many admirable
points as in the case of Mr. Mtcfarlaud. The way to
obliterate old parti'g is to show a willii guess to trim:
the good men of all. Mi. MiciaiUnd has proved an able,
capable and faithful representative, at ail his CJtmaiie
on the floor of Ccngrcas will attest. Then, it is but
right that be should be retaiiuj it hit ylart.
The writer of this is, or used to be, an old-line-Der.o
oral, who never gave, iu bis life, an “opposition vote,”
nor, to his knowledge, ever supported on on post o
man for public office. Bit’, he b-.lieves the only way to
consummate our revolu.ion, successfully, is to bury old
party feuds and uoi e io one common brotherhood in iu
sistance to the foe ; aud the only practical manner to do
this is, to give sub initial evidence that it is done by
elevating gdbd men to office, without reference to p k
party affiliations.

b jr-and, ou Sunday, the lit.h day of the tnoutb.
I: will be renumbered ibaUorwo two months sgr.
Brigadier General 7.olheoflVr moved with a portion o,

the Cumberland river, aud soon after advaum-d a-roe

bad two regiments ol infantry aod several bun ired cat
a ry. About the lot of Jauuary, M*j. Gen. Crittct»d« i
arrived and took the connuind. The enemy in front
• occupied Somerset with several regiments, and Cjlumb.n
with so equal force.
About ih®eeor.J week of this month two more repi
meats ariived frotu Kuoxville on artillery company will

Somerset is North-Kiat of Bercb Grove, and Golumbi.
North-west. A road connects Somerset aud Columbia
From Beech Grove the road runs North-Eaitcrly toward
Somerset for li v« miVs, when it forks--the lower for!
crossing Fishing Creek, at what is know, at the lower J
crossing, which is da ait seven miles from Beech Grov., |
nod twflvr tidies Irom Somerset; the upper fork, rut.
ning five miles into the road ..out Columbia to Semen e , I
ami from that petal along wi h It two miles, to the n- - I

from Somerset. Kur.uiug Irom North to South l.ctwic j
Sinteract and Beech Grore !s Fishing Crctk, wi;h higi. .
precipitous banks, end emptying iuto the Cumberland
Kiver above Beech Grove.
Oa the 17th of January it was ascertained that alar?, j
Federal fotce was moving on the ro d from Columbia t.. j
Somerset, aud on the < vetting of that day was camped at j
the point where the Beech Grove road runt into the Co
lumbia and So in tree road, distant from Beech Grove In
mdea. It waa alto ascertained on the same day that t» e
Federal (orces Item Somerset had moved to the lown
croesinp aud were camped On the Sjuieiset .-ide of FislF

meets were movii g from the direction of Columi ia and
that the junction of all w.s intended for an attack o
Camp Beech Grove On the 17th and l.s.h it rained s
much that Fishing Cre"k could not he e t sued ard so the
lores from Columbia before tho 20.K
From the face of the country iu front of Camp Reec'
Grove there was verv bad rargefor artillery and itcou'd
not be of very material beucG against an attacking iu
fantiy fnioe ; and fruu the nM! ol the front line ami

Thus with lour thousand men we bravely attack)d

It in o’clock, P. M. A< » o’clock the enemy came and
invested the place, and fired from two batteries into our
entrenchments.
Then arose the question whether to defend or evacu
ate the place. Suppoee we could have held it against
the superior force tttackiug I In a few days we would
have been slarvr.l out; aud if, with their battery which
commanded the Ituding, thev had iijured the boat, es
cape would hate been impo stble and surrender insviu
tde. Ar.nr, bv taking Mill Spring in our rear, retreat at
any time wt.u'd hav.* been cut ofr; it would have been
vain to think of cutting a way in ftont, because without
.a lots the army would have beeu precupatated into a
barren countiy, unable to rfl ird auy subsistence what
ever. To prevent th.se strut's an immediate crossing of
the river during the night w»s utc< n-ary, and as time
permitted only to crots the roer, baggage, camp equi
page, wagnus, hor/tsand artill. ry had to be left—a
great racrifice, but not to be cmiinat. d in the balanue
with saving the army. Tins bold and n astetly move
ment was accomplished on this night, and the next morn
ing mw our army ou the Sou'h of the Cumberland, and
the enemy in Camp B *ech Grove.
The crossing w«s effected during Ihe u ght by the aid

had appeared the quitting of this portion of Kentucky
had been gravely considered aud almost delt trained up

Blue Grass , and t II the counties on the Uft aod right ai d
