COLWELL, Ch'm Co. Com. fepeerh of General Kiipalrick. HIS OPINION or COPPERHEADS. 6* The Newark Advertiser gives tho fol lowing report of the speech delivered by General Kiipalrick on taking tho chair os temporary president of tho Union State Convention at Trenton : '•Gentlemen and fellow citizens of my native State ; I truly appreciate the great honor you have conterred ou me, an hum ble soldier from New Jersy, iu selecting me to preside over the only loyal con vention that will bo called in the State fur the nomination of a candidate for Governor. [Loud and continued ap plause ] It is scarcely necessary for me to 6P.y that this distinction is unexpected and almost overwhelms me; and in ac cepting it I do not intend to make any extended remarks ; | should as soon think of talking war to that great soldier, Gen. Grant [tremedou? applause] as to talk polities to all this vast concourse of poli ticians [laughter and epplausej; to mon j who aro not only my seniors in wisdom, but in years, and who have made poli-1 tics the study of their lives. Yet I do desire to say that I accepted au invitation | to meet with you hero to day in order that there may be no misunderstanding ■ to how I intend to conduct myself iu the future, and to show how I think a eoldier should conduct himself, now the, war is over, when patriotism demands; bis services or influence. To show to Union men and copperheads how a sol dier respects the former and despises the latter; how ho coudemns their traitorous acta, which have disgraced my native j State for the past four years. lam here,! feeling that I am among men who never epoke a word of disloyalty, aud who never faltered ; and to represent men who have remained firm during the dark hours ot the TTninn, and who have prayed, fought and bled for our country; led by that great an I good man, Abraham Lincoln £im ueuse and long continued applause]. "You have assembled hero to-day, my friends, under no ordinary circumstances, and I trust with good promise of success in redeeming tho fame of our State. I tall you. wherever I go—to New lork, Philadelphia, Washington, while travel ing in tho cars—everywhere I hear lan guage in reference to New Jersey which fills my soul with disgust aud hatred to those wha have disgraced my native state; and how it is possible for any of its citi zens to join hands with traitors is beyond my comprehension. Fellow citizens, I have deviated from the course of military men in takiog the stand I have, but I have been more excited since I have been m New Jersey over what I have heard tail this I was during auy of the scenes through which I have passed during the war. Do vou know that I have beard imen here say it would have been bettei ito let the South go; that they believe iu ! State rights j that the martyred President was a tyrant! that his successor, Andrew 'Johnson, is a Second Nero! There are men in Sussex, with much zeal but very little brains, wbo rejoice that they voted for John C. Breckinridge once, aud say 'by thunder they would do it again il they had an opportunity !' Not satisOed with the sacrifices, expenses, aud all the calamities of the war, they now tell you that Johnson is a murderer for approving the oxecutiou ol the assassins of the President." J iVCOOKE. 77" Mr. Jay Cooke, an enterprising and successful Philadelphia banker f has always been one of the most efficieut negotiators of public securities. Four years ago. when Pennsylvania State stocks were dewn to 85, he worked and brought them up to par, and at that rate he obtained three million dollars for the State, for raisiog and equipping her troops. When the Secretary of the Treasury gave vari ous bankers throughout the country com missions to negotiato his first loans, Mr. Cooke was always among the most suc cessful. Ho iufused a portion of his own great energy into his sub-agcn.s, and seemed to best understand how to pie sent the claims of the Government to the . people. When the 520 loan was author j :zcd,it was before the public many months without attracting any attention, and the total sales by the Government were only about eighteen millions. The war ex penses were so vast that banks and bank ers were no longer able to supply money in sufficient amounts, and the secretary of the Treasury was compelled to adopt J some plan for appealing directly to the people to supply the means for sustaining , the Government. Popular leans had never been tried, and their nature was not generally understood. Capital is al ways seusitive, aud capitalists, large nud small, were not only to bo told that there was a 520 loan on the market but were to be convinced that it was rhe best as well as tho most patriotio investment. — Mr. Cooke's high character and previous successes iuduccd the Secretary to appoint him General Subscription Agent. The press and the telegraph were immediately put in motion. A large sum was spent iu advertising, the distribution of a great variety of circulars aud baud bills Ac., the employment of of travelers, aud in es tablishing eub-agcucies throughout the loyal States. It has always been Mr. Cooke's policy to have our loans taken at home, aud he has never solicited subscrip tions abroad, believing that our own peo ble should hrve the advantage of the interest. The result of Mr. Cooke's ef forts for the 5 20s is well known. Under his agency, dating about Feb Ist, 18G3, and closing Jan. 22, 1864, the loan was sold up to 8514,780,500. As great success always occasions jeal ousy, complaiuts of favoritism towards Mr. Cooke were made against the Treas ury Departmeut, which a special report to Congress proved to be without the slight est foundation. About this timo the Natioal Banking System was established, aud it was a part of the planjthat the National Banks should j be the fiuancial agents of the Government. While publicly expressing the warmest gratitude to Mr. Cooke for his past great aud successful efforts, the Secretary of the Treasury determined to try the exper iment of plac'mg the 10-40 loan through their agency. In four months but cighty millions were sold. On July 25th, 18G4 the First Series of 7-30s was offered through the same channel, but up to Feb. Ist, 18G5, a period of six months, the sales and payments to the soldiers amounted to only about one hundred and twenty mill ions. This rate of subscription not being sufficient to meet the public wants.it was determined to return to the agency of Mr.; Cooke,underjwhose management the sales beguu to show an increase within the first, week, and in less than two weeks averaged two millions a day. During the first thirty days they reached one hundred ! millions—an average of about fouj mill ions for each working day. The first se ries was exhausted on the 30th of March, wen the sales of the Second Sories of three hundred millions was begun. This se ' ties was all sold on the 13th cf may, de j ducting Suudays and holidays, in the j wonderfully short space of thirty six working days—making an average of eight aud one third millions per day.— The 6alc of the third series then com menced, hut owing to tho fact that the Treasury was UDable to deliver the notes comparatively little effort was made to in -1 fiueucc subscriptions until June Ist,when' deliveries were advertised to begiu. The sales of Government loans, under Mr. Cooke's management as General Subscription Agent, bavo been about thus : 5-20 Bonds $511,000,000 7-30 Notes 760,000,000 31,274,000,000 to say nothing of his earlier undetakings, or the large amounts of bonds taken by his firm at tho lettiugs to the highest bidder. Although other causes than im perfect agencies retarded the subscription iu the summer and autumn of 1864, it oannot bo denied that their subsequent success was chiefly from Mr. Cooke's en ergetic direction. His efforts have cer tainly been as unceasing and hie wisdom skill and energies have certainly been taxed as much as any commander in the tfeld, and with results not less important. Ho has been ably assisted by his brother Henry D. Cooke,aud JI.C. Fahnestock— both partners iu the hrin of Jay Cooke & Co. Burning of the TV llllnin Kelson The Captains Official Statement—The Ship a Perfect Blaze of Fire ichile in Full Sail—Men Women and Chil dren Roasted Alive—A Fi<jht for a Raft —Fearful Panic. By the British steamer Scotia, arrived in New York from Liverpool, we are en abled to furnish our rerders with the fol lowing condensed account of the burning of the steamehip William Nelson, drawn up bv the Captain at the American Con sulate at Havre. "The William Nelson left Antwerp, June Ist, with a cargo of rails, wine, and various merchandise, about four hundred and forty-eight emigrant passengers, and a crew of thirty, including the Captain. The ship did Dot, however, put to sea until the 4th. The voyage was without any remarkable incident until the 20th of June, when tbey reached lat. 41.20, jlong. 52 20 W. Here, several emigrauts who had ill for some days were suf fering from a violeut fever; and, fearing <tbat it might become contagious, the Captain gave orders on the 26th to the | first mate aod carpenter to go below and ask the passengers on deck, so that the ship might be fumigated* Having all ascended, the first mate and carpenter were again sent below with several sail ors, furnished with tar buckets and red hot irons. The operation was nearly completed about 12A o'clock, when the last tar barrel burst into a flame, and the boiling tar flowed over upon the deck of the ceutre of the ship, burning the car penter and the sailor assisting him. The vessel immediately took fire. r lhe mid dle deck was soon full of emoke, aDd the tar flowed under Jjie bed of one of 'he emigrants, setting it on fire. The flames spread scon to all the other beds, render ing it impossible for the men to do any thing. Even before they could reach the deck immense columns of flame shot through the hatchway, and, reaching the sheets cf tho mainsail, (all sail was set at that moment) euvcloped the mainmast with the rapidity of lightning. Erelong all the sails on the mainmast were on fire, as well as the rigging. The captain im mediately ordered part of the crew to get the boats ready, and the rest to close the ventilator and the hatchways. This was hardly done, when a number of men, consisting partly of sailors and partly of, emigrauts, formed a chain fore aud aft, in order to pass buckets of water, which were poured down the mam hatchway, whence issued a columu of flame. r ! he pump 3 were also set at work. Hitherto discipline and good order had been main tained. Tho fire, however, made such rapid progress that tho captain ordered the lowering of the boats immediately, j Now a geneal panic seized the unfortun ate passengers, all throwing themselves upon the boats, which from their num bers it was impossible to prevent. The; first boat was no sooner in the water than she was capsized by a number of emi grants who jumped into her. These were' nearly all drowned Four sailors, how ever, succeeded in righting the boat and bringing her to the side of the vessel again, anu then saved some of them. But while the boat was still alongside, inoro emigrants leaped into it, and capsized her again. She was once more righted, and as many as possible taken on board. Two other boats were lowered with much trouble. The largest contained no less than thirty-five, with six of the crew, some of whom got into another boat, less heavily laden, leaving two to steer. The last boat, with the same number of sail ors, and full of emigrants, succeeded in getting clear cf those who, endeavoring to jump in off the ship, fell into the wa ter and swam arouod it. The captain, seeing that he could do nothing more, ordered the rest of the crew, about fif teen men, to throw overboard everything that would float. All were lashed to i gether so as to form a kind of raft. This was hardly done, when some of the pas sengers still on board threw themselves upou it in large numbers, followed by several of the sailors, filling the air with despairing cries. At this time others rushed madly from one end of the deck to the other. The tumult was such that it was impossible for the captain to make himself heard, though giving reiterated ; orders aud seeking to 6top the panic. At this time from one hundred and thirty to one hundred and fifty emigrants had suc ceeded in getting upon spars alongside the ship, though many were still strug gling in the water, when the topmasts, with their yards, Ac., all on fire, suddenly gave way, and fell right upon those iu the boat, killing many at once and throw ing the others into the sea. Tho cries ' of the wounded and drowning woro terri ble. Words are powerless to give an idea of the horrors of the scene. Tho unfor tunate still on board the ship in their great terror surrounded the captain and the sailors, clinging to them and beseech ing theui to save them. Some time after, the fire between docks gaining the upper deck and the masts, a fresh panic broke out among them, and, seeing their only chance of safety was to get upon the raft, the poor creatures fought among them selves to reach it. Maoy fell into the water and were drowned; others succeed ed in reaching the raft, but the main mast fell upon them some minutes after ward aud crushed a number to death. Then only, did the second mate, and a few of the crew jump overboard. Being good swimmers they proceeded towards the boats, at some distance, and were fortunate enough to reach them, and still 1 more so in being taken in by the occu pants. About two hours after the fire broke out a part of the deck, beiog en [tiiely undermined, fell w ; and a large ' number of emigrants were precipitated headlong into the burning furnace be neath. It Iras horrible to see the flames leaping out of this gulf. The heat was suf focating, and it wa9 impossible to remain any longer on board. The lashing which held the raft together being burnt thro' it parted in two, with many persona cling ing to the planks and many underneath. The captain, uuder the absolute impos isibility of doing anything to save those still on board, and net being able to re main with them any longer, jumped over board, and, seeing two boats at a great distance, swam towards theoi. Atter swimming for three quarters of au hour, together with two sailors who followed him, they were at last perceived-by the emigrants who steered towards them; and at a risk of being capsized and drown ed, picked them up in a state of almost complete exhaustion. The captain then took command of the two boats, and im mediately steored towards the ship in order to see if, with the spars floating about, they could make a raft to save those clinging to various objects, and those hanging to the ship and bowsprit. But nothing could be done. They re mained, however, near the burning ship until 3 A. M., when she sank, carrying with her the rest of the poor creatures on board. The boats then steered N. N. W. There was no water on board either of them. One boat had no provisions, and the other had two" or three fowls, a duck, and a pig. During all this time the sea was calm, fur hod the slightest breeze arisen all must have inevitably have perished, the boats being laden nearly to the water's edge. The ship wrecked party continued their way uDtil 5 P. M , when they were seen aDd saved by tho steamer Lafayette. The third boat was met by the Russian three-masted bark Umari, which spoke the Lafayette the same night. At the request of Cap tain Bocande, the captain of the Ilmaii transferred his shipwrecked guests to the Lafayette. The Mercury picked up the four boat's crew, respecting whose fate so much anx iety was felt on the 28th of June. The captain of the Mercury lay to for several days, and subsequently cruised about in the neighborhood cf the disaster, with watches on the yards, in the hope of res cuing others of the shipwrecked. One man, and subsequently ODe woman and three men, were thus picked up. Among the forty-three rescued by the Mercury are five women and five children, of whom one, born on board the William Nelson, is an infant only fourteen days old. This infant and his sister, three years old, are the sole survivors of a whole farui'y on; board. Secretary Stanton's Keport. During the war, one of the most diffi cult things to learn, says the Philadel phia Ledger , was the precise extent of enlistments, and the number or the mili- i tary force we bad in the field. Secretary Stanton has just furnished a report which lets a little light into the popular dark ness on this subject. There were enlisted for the army from November Ist, IRG3 to November Ist, 1864, 402,G08 white and colored troops. Colored volunteers enlisted in rebel States from January Ist, 18G4, to Ootober 14tb, of the same year, 22,148. In the 6a:ne period the recruits for the regular army were 13,871. Vet erans and re-enlisted before the expiration of their service, between November Ist, 1863, and November Ist, 1864, 136,507. Drafted and substitutes, 74,006. For the naval service and marine corps, from February to November, 1864, 24,683; making a total of 675,452. The report says : In estimating the number of troops called into service, it has been the care of the Department to take iuto account the whole number of men mustered, without regard to the fact that the same persons may have been previously dis charged after having been accepted aud credited on preceeding calis. A large part (near two hundred thou sand) of the meu accepted in the years 1861 and 1862, were soon found to be unfit for service, and were discharged. This accounts, partially, for the large excess carried forward from the- calls of 1862 and deducted from those of 1863. The colored troops eulisted up to Oc tober 30th, 1864, numbered 101,950. This branch of the service, up to that time, lost by battle, discbarges, descrtious, aod diseases, 33,132 men. Up to Nov. 7th, 1864, Gen. Thomas had organized along the Mississippi river a force of 50,320 colored troops. The operations of the draft are very remarkable. The report is dated Nov. 25th, 13G4. From July Ist, 180-f, Up to that time, 130,000 names were added to the enrolment list, and 285,398 names stricken off. This enrolment showed the national force, not called out up to November Ist, 18G4, to consist of 2,784,- 266 men. In the druft of 1863 the quota drafted for was 194,952, with fifty per cent, added. The report says: Of this number 39,417 failed tc report, and 164,887 were exempted from physi cal and other causes,, 52,227 paid com mutation, 26,002 furnished substitutes, and 9, 848 wero hold to service. The total deficiency drafted for was 50,367 The number repo'ted and examined 85,861 The DO. exempted for physical dis. 31,446 The no. exempted for other causes 10,648 The number held to personal service The number furnished substitutes 8,903 The number who paid commutation 32,446 On September 19th, 1864, another draft was had, and on the result, known up to November Ist, was as follows : Number reported and examined 72,452 Number exempted for phsioal dis. 20,332 Number exempted for other causes 13,737 Number held to personal service 19,058 Number furnished substitutes 13,343 These facts, adds the Ledger , clearly show that, as a means of recruiting the army, the draft was entirely inadequate. Those who were exempted, those who ran awav from the draft, and those who paid commutation, swallowed up nearly the entire number drafted. The number held to personal service was but a small ! portion of the whele amount. This . proves that volunteering, however ex pensive it may be, is the most popular, surest, and speediest means of raising an ■' army, and of making satisfind and willing , soldiers. The average measurement of ; the chest, at inspection of the recruits was. 35.10 inches The average height was 5 feet 0.44 inches. Yeriuout troops showed the greatest number of inches around the chest and the greatest height; i but Peonsylvania troops were close upon Vermont —for lier men measured an av erage ot 5 feet 7-08 inches, against Ver mont's 5 feet 7 G2. In the measurement around the chest the men of Pennsylva nia were 1.55 inches less than Yermout. The Veteran Ilesetvc Corp9 shows that nearly every fourth man has been trans ferred to it on account of disability from honorable wounds. The horses and mules in the army amounted to 300,000 During the first eight months of the year 1804, tha cavalry of the Army of the Potomac was supplied with two remounts —nearly 40,000 horses The expenditures for the Ordnance Department during the year were $48,- 502,82g, and there remained in the arsenals on the 80th of June last 2,087 field cannoa and siege guns, 1,304,947 small aims, and 1,831,853 pounds of artliicry ammunition. There were iD operation during the year 0,500 miles of military telegraph, of which 70 miles are submarine. One million eight hundred thousand telegraph messages were trans- j mitted during the year, at an average cost, charging the whole yearly expense of construction, maintenance, and opera tion to them, of only thirty rents. There were purchased during the year about 9,500 army wagons, 1.100 ambulances, and harness for 175,000 animals. The special report of animals and means of transportation with the several armies during the year are imperfect, hut it is estimated that there were about 300,000 horses and mules In the service of the army, of which the horses were about 170,000, and the mules about 130,000. , The number of men who have died in j hospitals, in the vicinity of Washington, I from August Ist, ISGI, to August Ist 1864, is stated at 12,708, of whom 4,910 were natives of the United States, j Over two hundred flags, captured from rebels in various battles, received during the year, arc deposited for safe keeping Many others are supposed to have been disposed of by persons who captured or had them in possession, in ignorance of 'their being public property. One hun dred and sixty men were presented with medals of honor for capturing rebel flags and other acts of bravery. The statistics of the Surgeon General's Department show that there were in ope-1 ratiou on the 30th of June, 1804, 190 hospitals, with a capacity of 120,521 beds. During the year the health of the entire array was better than is usual with troopsi ! engaged so constantly on active duty and in arduous campaigns. No destructive epidemics prevailed iu any section, and the Dumber of sick and wounded, altho' large, was comparatively small in the pro portion it bore to the whole army. At i the close of the year the number of the sick and wounded, both with their com mands and in the general hospitals, was less than sixteen (10) per cent, of the strength of the army. Of this number 9.3 per ecut. were wounded. The deaths from disease during June, 1864, were 2.98 per thousand of mean strength ; from wounds, 3.10 per thousand; total deaths, 0,08 per thousand, or six-tenths of oue per ceut. for the month. During the same month of the previous year the total -was 7.3 per thousand of mean strength, or over seven-tenths of one per cent. There were furnished during the year to disabled soldiers 009 legs ana 339 arms. The Oil Cily Register says the Pit llolc excitement still continues. Towns arc springing up in that favored locality, and evory oDe seeking to invest his means in oil land or leasef thereat. One day last week the United States Petroleum Company sold fifteen leases at auction, and the prices ranged from 84,000 to 57,- 000 per lease, just think of paying a bonus of this amount, besides giving to the company one half of the oil. .But large fortunes are being made there every hour, and the excitement is unabated No one, so a friend tells us, is allowed to own any of the property in that locality longer than fifteen minutes, so that spec ulation has become legitimate. Mining operations are busily caried on every where and we think the developments of the present season will prove the most favorable ever before known. AY'e esti. mate the daily production at about 6,000 barrels. Of this, Pit Hole produces fully 2,000 barrels per day, or ODe third. At a dinner to Gen. Sherman in St. Louis,on Thursday last he made a speech closing with this singular sentence : '•Therefore, my friends, now that the war is over, let us all go to work to do what seems most honest aud just to re. store our country to its physical prosperi. ty. As to its political prospersty,l know nothing of it and care about it far less." Soda fountains have been introduced on the tiaios of the Litile Miama Railroad. Mercantile Appraisement.
