TUESDAY, APRIL 21.1863
There are none so dumb as those who will Dot
understand. It is a fact too plain to pate \ff un
noticed, that there are a ( nnmber of presses in the
country arrogating to themselves all the loyally, and
claiming to be the troe expounders of the Consti
tution and laws of the United States, who are
at same time doing little else than abasing the
Administration. The; hare not a word in con
demnation of Jeff Davis and his traitorous crew,
but the; are awfully afraid that the President will
deala hide too roughly with the rebels—that he will
'net treat them as though the; were citizens of the
United States. Were it not that such a course
would detect their hypocritical loyalty, we doubt
, not they would complain of the President for
allowing pur soldiers to put ballots in their guns
when they fire at the rebels, so tender arc their
sympathies for their misguided Southern breth
ren," who have persisted in being misguided for
over two years. These professedly loyal papers
are great sticklers for the Constitution and the laws,
and claim thatthe Emancipation Proclamation of
the President is unconstitutional, because, forsooth,
slavery is a State institution and the President or
Congress cannot interfere-with it. Horses and
cattle arc property, and neither the President nor ■
Congress can interfere with them as thej are
found in the States; but would it be regarded
as unconstitutional for the President to issue a
proclamation to the, effect' that henceforth all
horses or cattle taken from the rebels, or which
mar stray into the Union lines, should:be held for
service, or sent away so that their owners could
not get them again. Most certainly not. It
would he taking from our enemies part of their
support aid weakening them, just what we want
to do. Slaves being property, aql subject to the
same laws, and more valuable to the rebels—our
enemies^—in point of serviced it is certainly no more
unconstitutional to take them than it wonld be to
take horses or cattle. We know that slavery is a
“ peculiar institution” when we come to speak of
it as it exists in the slave States, but when, slave
drivers wish to take their slaves into the territories,
then they call them chatties, the equals of horses
and cattle. It is well known to these loyal papers
that the President's proclamation does not affect
the slaves of loyal men within the Union lines, or
withinHhe dominions of Jeff Davis, but itdoes not
snititfaem to make this distinction. It would be
tray; their real disign. AH who can read can un
derstand that4he proclamation only frees the slaves
of rebels, and that as the Union army moves for
ward, loyal men con come in behind it and own
and. bold as many slaves as they desire, and all
the laws ever passed for the protection of slave
property will be carried out to protect them. But
the rebels have no rights in property, or anything
else, which the President, the army, or any loyal
man should respect. They are outlaws, traitors.
If had the opportunity they would carry off
or destroy all the! horses, cattle and other property
of every Union man in the country, and why
should we endeavor to secure any property to
them. , They do not recognize the laws of the
United States as binding upon them, while dealing,
with us, and what right have they to expect us to
treat them as though they were oar fellow citizens
under United States Uw s£ -They are outlaws,
deserving of.no laws, save that of hemp,'cold lead
or steeL They are worse than foreign enemies—
at leastare so regarded in law and by , our Con
stitution. Yet notwithstanding ail the injury they,
have done the government, the valuable; lives that
have been sacrificed to resist their endeavors to
overthrow tbeYlqion, there are men in the loyal
North who will have the boldness to stand up and
say that it is unconstitutional to take away the
’ property of such infernal traitors. They tell us
that the Proclamation of the President is uncon
stifutionak but they do not show it bylaw or argu
gnroent. Doubtless it would be unconstitutional
were traitors to be considered as, and protected like,
-loyal citizens, hot since they are not, thire certain
ly can be nothing unconstitutional about it. We
have never yet read or heard an argument going
to prove that the President transended bis power,
but on the contrary we Bare read many tirades of
abuse heaped upon him and his advisers, such as
“ Blade Republican,” “ Abolitionist,” “ Charcoal
Dynasty," “Great Usurper,” and other contempt
ible epittots, which Jus traducers wonld puss for
argument; But epithets are not arguments, as the
the enemies of the government will socb -discover.
The very epithets now applied by these loyal
presses, to the Administration, were those used by
the rebels two yenis since. Verily, they appear
to be fallowing in the footsteps of their illustrious
(bat noon to be oblivions) predecessors. Wh
cannot discover that these usurpations qf power
and unconstitutional acts of the President have
affected .the loyal States in the least. They are
just as prosperous as they ever were, if not more
'so. We do not feel the “ Iron heel of tyranny”
about which we hear so much. Every man has
mcmeythatwprks for it, because money is more
plenty than evqr before—so plenty that in. some
parts of the country it cannot be loaned at more
than three per eept. To be sure the prices of
' many—almost all— articles of consumption and
wear have advanced,bnt that is not the fault of the
President—it is tbe fault, In the first place, of the
villains who fined upon Fort Sumpter, and,.in' the
second place, of a pack of heartless speculators
who would sacrifice their country end oppress the
poor to enrich themselves. The faet is, these loyal
presses know well 'enough that The President is in
no way responsible for the present condition of af
fairs, and that his acts and proclamations will’
not hnrt loyal States or loyal men,' bat they are

What of Charleston P
For six months past we have had promise after
promise that Charleston was to be attacked. At
last the attack has been made, but without any
decisive results,-so far os the capture of the city
and the forts thcrealionts are concerned. From
all the indications we are led to believe that file
attempt made was merely a reconnoisance, *to
find out tbe strong points and obstructions of toe
rebels, and test the capacity of the iron-clads. —
This, we think, has been effectually accomplished.
It is now ascertained ' that the obstructions in the
channel are of tbe most formidable character,
and that our gunboats have a task to perfotm,
greater than any ever yet attempted in naval
warfare. It lias also been demonstrated that the
Monitors are capable of resisting successfully, for
two hours, the concentrated fire of some three
hundred guns, nearly all of. the largest calibre and
improved patterns, and firing improved steel
pointed shot, and if they can stand it for that
length of time, they can stand it sufficiently long to
batter a bole in Sumpter apd cause the “ rebs” to
skedaddle therefrom more hastily than did Major
Anderson and his gallant band. None of the
regular Monitor built boats were injured in; the
slightest. The Keokok, which was so completely
riddled, was not of the Monitor pattern, but
simply an ircnplated boat, with a deck like a
tnrtle back, thus receiving direct upon her deck the
plumping shots from the forts. While she might
have resisted or turned off line shots, the upper
guns of the fora had fair play upon her. This
was the only boat damaged to any extent.
When the next advance is to be made we hive
no information, but presume that the government
will make use Of the information gained, and Wheif
Charleston is again visited it will be in a manner
which will insure success. So mote it be.-
far A writef, over the signature of “ Aristides,"
occupies a column of the last Johnstown Democrat
to read the Jndiciaty a lecture for opening their
lips in favor of , the Union and condemning trea
son South and North, and calls it dabbling in pol
itics. Can it be that the two great political par
ties of the country have been rtßrged into Loyal
ist* and Traitors? If we are to believe “Aris
tides,” this"must be so, and we must put him down
as a member of the Traitor party, since his entire
communication is a tirade of abuse of a truly loyal
■nan, whom we venture to say stands as high above
his annonymoqs slanderer, in purity, truthfulness,
loyalty and alf adorning virtues, as the sun above
the stagnant pool. He assails Judge Taylor for
having delivered a Union speech before the Union
League in this place, in which he characterized
as traitors those members of the Legislature who
voted against granting tbe Hall of the IJpuse of
Representative to Gov. Johnion, of Tenn., and
Gov. Wright, of Ind. Judge T. is much more
capable than “ Aristides” of defining treasonable
actions. If anything more than his attack upon
Judge Taylor were wanting to write “ Aristides”
down an ass, if not an enemy of Union men, it is
the styling of such loyal Democrats as Govs. John
son and Wright “idiotic ranting Abolitionists,”
and their speeches as “filthy harrangties.”; No
wonder he was ashamed to sign his real name
to his contemptible production, for had he done
so he could not have looked an honest man in the
face, and if the sense of shame has nut lung since
been smothered in him, he now feels himself the
meanest man in the two counties, anti doubtless
prays that 1 the veil of secresy may forever shield
him from public scorn. .
The dailies of this mottling bring us an ac
count of another outbreak of the K. G.C'e, in
Indiana. A ttnion meeting in Brown county, in
that State, was; broken, up by a party of these iriten,
under the lead hf a man named Prosser an ex
member of thh Legislature, and another named
Snyder. They came armed with rifles and re ‘"
volvcrs and threatened to shoot two sergeants' who
were there for the purpose of arresting deserters.
One of the sergeants took Prosser's gun from him
when he* drew a pistol and shot the tkrgeaht.—
Prosser was in turn shot and dangerously wounded-
Capt. Cummings, who was addressing the meeting,
was shot and wounded. Another difficulty'; oc

Stoneman’s CaValry Aecoxmoisance.
, A correspondent who accompanied the cavalry
reconnoissance detached from Gen. army,
says, that the elements - have prevented it from
achieving the respite expected from it. In a
letter of tbe 16th from near Freeman's ford, be
yond Bealeton, be says: On Monday morning
early, the expedition, under command of Maj,
Gen. Stoneman, consisting of cavalry, infantry and
artillery, left our old encampment opposite Fred
ericksburg ; one portion, cavalry alone, proceeded
to Bristerburg and there encamjied for the night;
another, likewise cavalry, bivouacked the same
night at Elk Run; another portion, cavalry with
a battery, encamped at Morrisville, and a fourth,
accompanied by it brigade of infantry, and two bat
teries of artillery, remained for the night at Grove
Church, Stoneman’s headquarters being at the
Spotted Tavern, thereby making a complete semi
circle, and guarding and covering every road and
by-pat h to our rear. Before daylight tire next
moniing, that portion encamped at Bristerburg
sent out two .squadrons, the Eighth Illinois and
Ninth New York, under Capt. Farnsworth, with
.instructions to proceed to Warrenton, thence to
Sulphur Springs, and there await orders. The re
mainder of this force were ordered to proceed to
The squadron sent towards Warrenton and
Sulphur Springs fully obeyed their instructions in
their tour. They came upon several detached
bodies of that celebrated partisan cavalry who
rendezvous in this locality, to each of- which they
gave chase, and succeeded in capturing some and
wgunding others. On reaching the Springs they
forded the river, and continued down on the op
posite bank as far as Freemau’s Landing, when,
owing to the inclemency of the weather, the roads
becoming impassable, they were obliged to return
to the point at which they crossed. ■
The Division which remained at Elk Kan left
there before daylight the same morning, and pro
ceeded to Bcaleton, and upon their arrival there
th-y observed scattered About upon the hills and
in the woods, parties of two, three, and up to a
dozen, of the same partisan cavalry before sfioken
of, to whom they gave chase, but was unsuccessful
in their capture. The division remaining during
the night near Morrisville moved down to near
Kelly's Ford. Here was discovered the first or
ganized body of the enoaiy. Preparations were
made at once to dislodge them, and after throwing
a shell or two. the rebels deemed it prudent to
retire, which they did at a rapid rate, thus leav
ing the Fold in our possession.
A portion of this force then was sent on up the
river to the Kappahaunock Bridge, with instruc
tions to hold and prevent its spoliation. All has
been done agreeable to directions given. They
now hold one side of Kelly's Ford, and are strong
enough in position at the bridge to hold it and
prevent - its destruction. The remaining division
on leaving their encampment, at Grove Church,
traveled onto the junction of Eastham and Hedge
man’s Creek, and from there to Liberty, where
they now are. These two met with trifling oppo
sition, and have sent in some ten or twelve pris
Thus were we moving quietly along; the roads
were in a splendid condition, the streams almost
dry, and unbounded success had been the result
of our every movement, when the violent storm
came, turning the soil into a thick, pasty concrete,
rendering the hauling of artillery an utter impos
sibility, and it was with a great deal of difficulty
that our lead horses could move along; all the
lime a perfect deluge of rain was falling, and at so
rapid a rate as to cause the many streams empty
ing into the Rappahannock to swell to an enormous
height. Streams which we crossed in the morning
only an inch or two deep, were by noon rapidly
flowing in absolute torrents, and so deep as to ne
cessitate the swimming of horses in their crossing.
The First Maryland Cavalry, in crossing one of
these streams, lost three horses by drowning.
At noon yesterday, our transportation wagons
were concentrated at Bealeten, unloaded and sent
back via Morrisville, and such supplies as were to
be taken along were packed on the mules.—
During the afternoon of yesterday frequent alarms
were in progress, because of the doings of the be
foremenlioned partisan cavalry, and at one time
some dozen of them made a dash upon Bealeton
Station, and succeeded in taking a trifling amount
of property and capturing one than. Towards
night Bush's Lancers were set scouring the
countty, in order to clear it of these strolling bands.
They have succeeded admirably in so doing, and
are almost hourly sendinig in some of them as
prisoners, together with quire a nuuberof civilians.
Towards noon yesterday, Gen. Stoneman, being
fully convinced of the utter impracticability of
proceeding further, called a consultation of his
Generals, when it was determined to remain in
possession of the position we then held, in order
that we might, without delay, continue our tour
when the weather and roads will permit. The
rebels appear in considerable force, hut we doubt
much if they will he able to greatly retard ns should
our able leaders determine to cross.
Stirring Report from Vicksburg.—A pri
vate dispatch has been received in the city report
ing the important fact that seven of our gunboats,
together with 1 three transports, had'run the Vicks
burg batteries, but that one of the latter, theHeniy
Clay, had been burnt. It this bo true, we pre
sume the object i 4 either to co-operate with I'ar
ragut against Tort Hudson, or, which is much
1 more likely, to flank Vicksburg; from below, prob
ably, via Warrenton. We, of course, judge the
transports had no troops aboard, as the ; requisite
force could go by land, on the Arkansas side, to
the point of embarkation, and ;be ferried across
Ibe Mississippi by these gunboats and transports,
*We should judge that this movement meant, no
ffireet attack on Vicksburg, hut rather the posses
sions of the railroad connecting that city with
Jackson, lying directly east of it. That road once
seized, Vicksburg is cut of from reinforcements,
andean readily he surrounded.'; Should the rebels
i anticipate this move, and attempt to defend this,

Twus the night before Christmas, th’ stockings
Our devotions wore ended, th' vesper hymn sung,
The babe lay asleep on its fond mother’s breast,
And all but myself had retired to their rest.
I sat down alone, as I oft had before.
When, w ithout. » loud rap I heard at my door :
A friend, thought I, who, from some place far
Has timely conic to gladden our Christmas day.
Oi. as vervjruly it may not be that,
Some chum who desires to engage in a chat:
Then hastily rising and placing a chair.
I liastened to sec who it was that was there—
Tkcugh hoarse was the North-wind, and black was
And fiercely the elements battled on high.
Vet cheerfully, gladly, I went to the door,
Supposing a friend, nothing Uss nothing more.
The door I threw open, and bade him come in—
His garb was all tattered, Ms visage was thin,
His hair was all matted, and firey his eye;
He paused for a moment and heaved a deep sigh,
And wildly he gazed as he look’d on me there,
And at last feebly said, “ Uh ! do you not care
For one who hits fallen, whose unhappy state
I charge to myself and not falsely to fate?
I know an the world I have now no more claim,
Though once I might proudly have witten my name

But, alas I in an evil, unguarded hour,
I yielded my strength to the rum fiend s stern
Became a lost drunkard-#ny God is it sot
And down to an inebriate's grave I must go.
I know that I have no more claim on the world,
Well I know-, that peace from my grasp I have
I know, for myself I have written despair
In deep lines of guilt, I would God they were care ;
And I know, yes alas, I know it so well,
In my own breast I’ve kindled a fierce burning hell.
And yet I could bear if, if only alone,
I could shed the hot tear and heave the deep
But alas! a fond wife and dear children three.
Without any guilt are sufferers with me.
Tis for them 1 wotdd ask your kindness my friend,
To them I would have you your sympathy lend.
To them have you go, and there make a brief
For them I would have you in faithfulness pray.’
My heart sank within me for dark was the night,
(How much darker that soul devoid of all light)
Yet I hastened away to give timely aid,
To answer the call thus in agony made.
Far up the dark street, and then o’er the' rough
Through a darkened alley, my pathway I [found,
Till at lust I came t 0 a rickety door,
Which shut out all peace while it shut in the poor.
I opened it softly, 1 paused as I gazed,
And I stood there transfixed and sadly amazed—
A faint, light in the room, no fire on the hearth.
No more comfortless place could be found upon
A woman sat there sad, weary and worn,
For ’twaa hers in anguish yet silence to mourn;
Her ft attic was low bow’d, and her weeping eyes
