Dost Pat Him.—We understand that John
Brotberline, editor of the Whig, is attempting a
bold game to “ raise the wind,” by representing to
the late -candidates of the People’s Party that he
’ *•» “ noderstanding with ns whereby he is to
reeehre put of the pay fin- punting the tickets for
the party, last fail. This is not true. Brotherline
. never spoke to us on, that subject. And farther,
we did not print the tickets for the party. Weprinted
them on v the order of Mr. Caldwell,’ editor of the
Begitter, and delivered them to him for distribu-
tion, end we look to him for our pay. We have
notUngto do with the candidates in this resncct.
They must make settlement with Mr. Cai||well.
We did the work as job printers, for one person,
and not as party printers for the, party, consequent
ly we have nothing' to do with a division of the
spoils, it there be any. Mr. Caldwell is entitled
to every cent of the ticket money, inasmuch as
Brotherline did not print any of the tickets. If
the services of the editor of the Whig were of any
value to the candidates, in any other way, they
can pay him therefor, but as far as the tickets are
concerned! he is not entitled to one cent, and if he
receives any money thereon, be receives that which
does not belong to him and for which be never
rendered value. We repeat that there is no un
derstanding between us that he is to re
ceive any part of the pay for tickets. Those who
know the editor of the Whig will not be astonished
at this last dirty little trick.
Amy correspondence— not those in the
army, but those who fellow it for the purpose of
detailing movements—are so given to Iving that
we can scarcely believe anythingwc read emenating
from them. We would always rather have the
Plain truth; even if it did not please us. We don’t
expecteverything to move off jnst as we would Lave
it. According to correspondents the army is' al
ways “well clad,” “well provisioned," “in the
best of spirits,” and “eager for another fight.”
The reverse of all this is too frequentlv the case.
“ Eager for a fight" in the language of u soldier
now in Reserves, is ‘Splayed out.” While all the
men in the army, with a few exceptions, are ready
and willing to do their duty, and will fight lik»
tigers when they are started, , they have seen as
much “fight” as they care about and were thcv
assured that the perpetuity of the Union was se
cured, the rebels entirely subdued and the stars
and stripes the only ensign between the Atlantic
and Pacific, the lakes and the gulf, they would
willingly return without “another fight.” But
they are, witling to go into “another” and still
“another,” until the Union is restored and the -
rebels conquered or exterminated. The privation? ,
of a soldier are greater than many imagine, and
this puffing hp of things by newspaper correspon
dents is exceedingly galling to them, and no set
of men are more detested bv the soldier than the
Nack Agai> . Scarcely had our lastissue, con
taining an account of Burnside's advance, been
circulated, ere we received the information that he
had fallen back again to the north side of the Rap
ahanhock. His retreat from, Or evacuation of the
pontion to which he had advanced, was well con
ducted, and his men werei all safe over the rive
, and the pontoon bridges taken up before the ene
my knew that he was withdrawing. Thus the
livea of hundreds, perhaps | thousands, were saved.
When and where the next advance will be made
we cannot jay. ■ We might comment upon the
late withdrawal, but do not chose to do so We
believe .Burnside did the best he could, and the
blame nets, upon other shoulders.
Dujn’t hiKE Him.—lt appears that the secesh
era down in the Southern part of Illinois, styled
“ Egypt, ” didn't like Parson Brownlow, consider
ing him profane and vulgar, and 'tis said that the
soldiers were required to keep the populace from
eggingbim. Webelieveit. He’s hard on the secesh
of the South, but worse on those of the North.—
That’s why they didn’t like him. He (old them
the truth in plain language and they didn't like
to hear it. The people of the East are about us
much refined and fastidious as those of the West,
yet we beard no complaints of vulgarity or pro
fanity while oh his eastern tour, except occasion
ally a grunt from a secesh sympathizer, when his
southern brethren caught jesse from the Parson.
Not Caught tet.—The U. S. cruiser, San
Jacinto, is after the “ 290, ”■ down among the West
' Jodi* Islands, but has not yet succeeded in catch
ing the piratical craft. As was to be expected,
we learn that the “ 290” was recently at Martin
ique, where she was receiving coal from a “ neu
tral" British vessel. We like the neutrality of
the English, as it enables ns to know exactly how
honest and how friendly they are toward the Uni
ted Slates, and we will hereafter know where to
find them. We hope the San Jacinto may suc
ceed in overhauling the “ 290,” otherwise we may
expect to hear of more of her daring' exploits
among our merchantmen.
Reduction of Durr on White Pai-eb.—The
Philadelphia Inquirer says: The feeling is becom
ing very strong throughout the country against the
paper monopolists, and no doubt immediate action
will be taken in Congress looking to a reduction
of the tariff on paper. White paper has become
as much an essential of life asgrain. Every argu
ment that could be tnged in favor of the reduction
of the duty cm flour, in case of a famine, would
*Pply with equal force to the present situation of
affair* in regard to paper.
Bijptcbe at Wamukoxoh.— The daily papers
of Saturday last bring us the information that
Secretary and his son, bare resigned their
pkoes tn the cabinet, and that Gen. Halleck is to
be dismissed. There was a report on the streets
<* Waahingttm to the effect that Gen. Burnside
bad tendered his resignation. This last is only
report. Thai Seward has resigned is correct.—

’ Messrs. McChum 4 Derr.—Silence, com
pemlive silence, reigns throughout the artny at
present, bnt veryportcmidus of a dark and bloody
fnjnre. The two great armies arc ttfilinfi, as it
were, from their excessive labors of the pest few
days. Besting, did 1 say ? No, rather renewing
their energies with even more determined vigor
for a still more desperate struggle. Hostilities
have ceased for the present, at least for a few days,
in,order not to “change base” exactly, but the
manner of attack. After sacrificing a few thou
sand lives, the “Powers that be" have deemed it
advisable to sacrifice a few more thousand by
changing the mode of attack. ; Perhaps jif this
mode does not succeed they will “ change base,”
with a change also in commanders. There never
wap a finer army—better conditioned and spirited,
than the one which made the attack bn Freder
icksburg on Thursday last. Not a man in it, offi
cere or privates, but felt himself fully equal, if not
superior, to any emergency that might befall him
in the coming contest. How eagerly they pressed
forward when word was giving to crass, the river,
and many, in their anxiety to he first, leaped into
boats, and pushed out into the stream and (anded
on the other side long ere the last plank was. laid
on the bridge. : Yes, gentlemen, T myself saw two
boat loads of prisoners brought across long before
the' bridges were complete 1, and while this was
goihg on the enemy's pickets were continually
firing upon the foremost, bringing down I many
brave and fearless men. Your humble servant
was so fortunate as to be one of the first eight or
ten , who crossed, over on the bricjgc. Thi|t was
just at dark, and as I hurried up froth tho river to
the first street, I could bear the exclamation,
“there he goes!” “shoot him!”, “that’s him!’
fnade by some of those who had preceded me
across in the boats. Several were shot and others
taken prisoners. Fredericksburg fa situated on a
small hill, along the foot of whfah the : Rappa
hannock runs; and when I reached the street on
the top of this hill the first objects' whk-h met my
gaze were two rebels lying dead, at full length,
acrpfa the side-wnik. Those troops, (about two
companies) which crossed over in ,the boats at once
formed themselves into a patrol, for the purpose of
patroling the streets to arrest all rebels who might
be found. I volunteered to assist them; so pick
ing np a dead rebel’s gun I took my place in the
ranks. I did not march far, however, before I
heard cries of distress, and leaving the rpnks, I
proceeded in the direction of the sound. Ystoii
ascertained the cause. Several; females, with
their families, had assembled at a house and were
weeping and moaning over their mi.-fortuncs.—
Being ever ready to lend a helping hand to the
distressed, and more especially females, I volun
teered, and was immediately accepted, to accom
pany a loyal widow lady and quite handsome
daughter to their home. After : partaking o(
breakfast, the next morning, I started out to take
a look at the" city. The inhabitants had nearly
all left their homes the day previous, removing
some Of the most valuable goods a few miles from
the town, and thus awaiting the fate of thereby.
Many families, who were loyal, remained behind,
hoping to be able to protect their property from
•he ravages of our soldiers. Haw sadly were
,tbey disapointed! Not a house in. ; the pitv hut
was broken intof aud everything conceivably valu
able appropriated. Churches, stores atid private
dwellings were completely sacked of everything val
uable. Tobacco seemed to he molt earnestly
sought after and hundreds of pounds of the nasty
weed,, which had been stowed away and hidden
from View for months, was brought to light, find
many a soldier luxuriated on tobacco that dav
who had well nigh fain is lied from want of it the
day before. In some of the houses the tables
were spread indicating that the occupants had just
risen from tho engagement of a luxurious meal.
In others I observed soldiers, all bfack and be
grimmed with dirt, with overcoat oti and blanket
around their necks, seated at handsomely ’fur
nished pianos, playing away for. dear life, and
quite professionally too, while others were rum
aging .through bureau drawers, or inspecting- the
contents of well selected libraries. Never was a
city more thoroughly sacked in so short a spjlce of
time than the ill-fated city of Frederickshni-g.—
Bat soon the shells began to fly buck and forth
over the town, many of them alighting in the
streetsjand houses, which soon/pm a stop to the
pilfering. I remained in the city that day find all
the next, and never did I see or hear halls 1 / and
shells fly so quick and fast ns they did on Friday
and Saturday. On these - two days our infantry
were engaged, fighting most manfully at terrible
disadvantage, which told fearfnltv in their ranks
They maintained .their ground, however,: until
Sunday night when It was determined to evacu
ate the place. It Was on Saturday when ■ the
contest was the hottest, that the brave Lieiiwimnt
I otts was wounded, above his right eve div a
miniiieilwll. He was reclining on the gromidj his
bead resting on his left hand, awaiting- the attack,
when the fatal messenger of death came. He was
conveyed to the hospital where ho shortly • after
On the morning of the evacuation "his re-
mains were conveyed across the river hv Fred.
Wenchell and .three others, members of the com
pany. Fred, was ardently attached to his Uidut.,
and but for his untiring energy on that eventful
night, in all probability the body 'would have been
lost beyond recovery . Thus was suddenly termi
nated the brilliant,and honorable caredr of one of
Blair county s most noble sons. He was voting and
in the prime of life and fullness of vigor, ardent
in the cause of the Union, and admired and be
loved by nil who knew him. Bcihg . previously
a stranger, it has been my fortune to serve under
him since the breaking out of this rebellion, since
which time 1 have never censed to lovc, honor and
respect lum, not only as a gentleman, bnt a brave,
talented and true-hearted soldier. When dntv
called he was ever at his post, bravely and /fear
lessly meeting death on many occasions, arid nt
last when the grim monster’s unerring messenger
called, it found young Potts at List post, foremost
in the rank of duty. Alas! he is gone, and few
there are to take his place. May the sod grow |
green above his grave, is the heartfelt wish of/one I
who knew him in life, and sincerely regrets his I
loss in death. Participating in the last sad duty
ofa soldier to his fallen comrade, T left his bodv
to be returned to his sorrow-stricken parents. "
The troops have all returned to this' ride of the
river, and occupy their formercamp-ground, there
to await, as patiently as possible, the progress of
coming events. Some say that tho next 48 liburs
will develop astonishing results, but as this war
has already developed some “astonishing results,”
I shall not be surprised to hear that Congress is
“about to take measures for the vigorous prosbeu
lion of the war,” even “on to Richmond." A
close estimate here places our loss entire at 12;000
to 15,000 men. Anxiously awaiting “ the pro
gress of events,” I subscribe myself yoiiri, SlcJ. i

Wednesday last, it is said, was appointed as the
wedding day of General Bayard. But the terrible
-octrees of war have ordered otherwise. Instead of
leading a bride to the alter his lifeless body was
on ns way to the tomb. All the elements of ro-
I mance are centred in his brief brilliant and tragic
1 career. A soldier by nature, os well as by educa
j non, it was lus day-dream, while vet a subdltern
to command n regiment of cavalry. But the ob
ject of his voong ambition seemed to be far off un
tjl the outbreak of the Rebellion, when \t suddenly ;
came within his reach. Rapidly advancing bv virtue '
of " gallant arid meri;o ions conduct in the field,” :
he not only achieved tlie command of a regiment
ot horse, thus realizing the dream of jtis youth but
won also the star of a general officer. Through
out his service he was active, dashing, brilliant,
successful, so that when he received his death 1
wound, at twenty-eight yeprs of age, his fame had
spread over the whole country as a noble gentle- •
man and chivajrous soldier.
His death scene is as worthy of admiration ns !

let that member be censured or dismissed,

In a previous article we expressed a fear
ere were some who, from a false sense of dc
, would suffer and almost starve, rather than
f for relief. ; Let such cases be scachcd out
