Thero is no man living to-day in America, whoso political history is so full of contradictions as that of Abra ham Lincoln, no ono who is so often his own accuser, and yet to doubt tho immaoulateness of his latest judgment in any instauco is pronounced disloy alty by tho erowd of hungry cormo rants who trucltlo to his power.

When lloraco (Iroeley was figuring up tho ac tual damagy it was to tho North in a pecuniary point of view to bo unit ed with tho South, they said Greeley v as right, tho Union was a humbug, Union-savers wero old grannies.- When, in 1850 tho first secession, six teen star flags wero raixl under Fre mont, and tho eutiro Southern States woro blotted from their political maps as unworthy to bo associated with tho pure regions over which New England intolerance held sway, they "rallied round that ling, shouting tho baltlo try of freedom" from all constitution al obligations.

When Helper issued his incendi ary book with tho eniorsement of sixty-eight Republican Congressmen, they also endorsed, as they endorsed John Rrown tho murderer, cud tho loyal and humano seotimout of Zach Chandler that " tho Union was not worth a rush without a little blood letting." A fmo record, indeed, and excessivo loyalty is their biggest card in tho game. " A SrLEXDiD Sri:ciMEX.

The rebel raid on tho lukes is somowhat startling, though not to bo wondered at, consid ering "tho abundant facilities for such an adventure. From the latest intel ligence it appears that thoso parties concerned in tho raid who returned to Canada have all escaped. Gen. Sher man has written a characteristic let ter in reply to Gen.

Tho Philo Pnrnon. l.A loi yesterday morning, runing betwoon hero and Sandusky, was seized on by a party oi rcKois. Ihe facts and circumstances, which we have reooivod from D. C. Nichols. the mate, (Capt. At wood not being on Hoard,; aro-as lollows: Iho rebels oamo aboard the boat in squads, some in this city, some at fcaudwich, opposite this citv. and somo it-i t r ii -i i Hi L mmueji, in u u uooui tmriy in nuni bor, heavily armed w ith revolvers. lhoy mado no demonstrations until about half an hour after the boat had left Kelly's Island on its way to San dusky, when ono of these persons, ad dressing himself to tho mate, asked him if ho was in charcro of the boat and, upon receiving a reply that he was, he declared himself a Confeder ate officer, Captain Hell. Drawing his revolver and calling his men around him, he took Ttossossion of tho boat They soizod everything belonging to tho officers and men, and put the men all in the hold, except tho engineer. There wero on board about twenty livo or thirty passongers, men, womon and children. After proceeding about eight miles on thoir way toward San- uskj', they wero informod by tho en gineer that there was not wood enough on board to carry them through, in case of any head wind, and the boat was turned back to Middle Pass Island to take in wood. Captain Atwood, tho captain of the boat, resides on this island with his family. Upon the arrival of the boat ut tho dock, he came on board, not having any inti mation of what had happened. He as immediately taken prisoner, and confinod with tho mate and crew. Whilo lying at Pass Island,,, the steamer Itutnd Qiwen came in to wood. Tho rebels rushed on board and soized tho vessel, ordering all the passengers and crew into the hold of tho 1'hih Partont. When'tho latter vessel had finished wooding, tho rebels rnarchod the pass engers of both boats ashore, boing guardod by men with their arms drawn. having first made thorn take an oath that they would not make any -disclosure for twenty-four hours. Tho rartont then took tho Island Qitem in tow, and about half-way be tween Kelly's Island and Pass Island, she was scuttled and sunk, everything in tho hapo of moveable property hating first b?en removed from her. 1 They then procoedod on their courso toward Suudusky Pay, to Hour Cedar Point, when they changed thoir courso, and mado for the mouth of Detroit River, reaching Maiden at 4 o'clock this (Tuesday) morning. Tho crew of tho I'artoni, except the engineer and liremen, were landed on Fighting Island, in Detroit river, near ly opposite tho mouth of Eeorso river, ut about 5 o'clock this morning. They robbed tho crew of everything except what they had on their backs. Tho crew took passage on the steam er 2 'ear I, one of tho river boats, when it came along soon after. AVhen the Pearl reached Sandwich, tho Partont was found there, having been seizod and taken possession of by tho custom house ollicers of Canada, together with all the clfucts and arms of thoso men, which they could lay their hands on. They suoceodod in arresting two of the men, who aro now in jail at Sand wich. Tho mate and ctew of the Partont immediately wont on board of their vessel, on arriving at Sandwich, and took possession of her. ' They found that everything in tho way of the furniture of tho boat was completely destroyed, except a beauti ful piano, which had bevn removed to the dock. Tho feod-pipo was cut off, leaving hor in a sinking condition. The crew of the Partont heard sev eral shots fired on board the J eland Qtiecn, and it is supposod that ono or more persons wero killed and thrown overboard before she was aunk. Thoro an it thousand rumors fifloat, among others that this was intended to release tho prisoners on Johnson's Island ; that they were to be met by a propeller fully annod, and a force on shore to prevent auy help coming from Sandusky; that tho causo of thoir re turn to the mouth of tho Detroit River was tho failure of tho propeller to meet them, they considering them selves unable alone to elfect the re lease of the prisoners. There is great oxcitoment both in thia city and Sandwich, where an ex amination of the prisoners is to tako place. later. Sinco tho above was issued in Tu Free Press, further particulars havo transpired. Tho tug LUiott went down to bandwich and towed tho Philo Par tout to her dock in this city, where she arrived about twelve o'clock. She 1 - 1 IM ims recciveu. ono is m a sinning con dition, and it requires tho utmost ex ortion to keep her afloat. Her cabins and tho whole interior of the boat are most wantonly demolished. Tho men who wero arrested by the Custom Jlouso authorities at Sand wich wero released shortly after thei arrest, it being considered that thero was no legal authority for thoir do tontion on that sido. Tho men who participated in this affair aro now in Windsor, pcrumbulatinjr tho streets. or collected in groups, oinmly boasting of their adventure. They seem to consider it an adventure to bo proud oi, ana seem to court notoriety upon tho street They rnarchod up from Sandwich to Windsor this morning in u squad. The object of tho raid was to cap ture tho steamer Jlichiyan, which is ly ing at Johnson s Island. It has been no socrot about Windsor and Sand Wich. lint tin a lionn crnnoinllir talked about for somo timo past, although the oxact timo at which it was to tako placo was not known. Iircro sums of money have been sent from tho South for this enterprise, and thoso deepera loos havo endeavored to enlist with them many young Canadians, per suading them that it would bo a rare joke, and tho amount of plunder wouiu oo iurge. au ineir creuii, do it said, that not ono participated. The failure of tho expedition is cx plained by the fact that about twenty ot the gang who were to participate, wero accidentally Ion at Amherst burg, where they woro to embark, not being in timo for tho boat Ihey went in sight of tho steamer Jlichiyan, when their courage failed them. Bo ing so few in number they daro not mako tho attack, a,nd consequently they put about and camo back. Ihe engineer of tho Jtland Queen, whoso namo wo did not learn, was shot throueh tho. faro, l.anni his low- er jaw broken, and now lios in a vory critical condition. There is a rumor that the mate of the sanio vessel was shot through tho head and thrown over board. How much truth thore is in this report it is imposuiblo to tell at present Tho loader of tho oxpodition, Cap tain Bell, is well known on tho oilier sido, having boon thero for some time. Ho was formerly an officer in tho Con federate army. Toledo, bent 20. Capt. Orr, from tho Island Queen. arrived here from Detroit River this morning, and furnishes the Jllode a statemont with regard to the piratical operations in Sandusky last niirht. Tho Quoen left Sandusky at 3 V. M. yesterday; stopped at Kelly's Island jor ininy or iorry soiuiers; passed to Middle Bass Island, where she found tho Parsons in possession of the pi rates, who at onco seizod the Queon. The soldiers wore parolod as Confed erate prisoners, and the passengers sworn to socresy for twonty-lour hours. The Queen was then hvdicd to the 'arsons, and both started. Tho pony ongine was brokon off, opening a hole in tho Island Quoon's side, and she was cast off, and left to sink. SHERIDAN'S VICTORY. AVixcn ester, Sept 017-30 P. M. Jeut Gen. U. 8.
