SttUe of Attains at Vicksburg.
The fighting around this notorious, place has
bam of the moat dsaperate character, involving a
greater krai of life than any struggle of the war.
The character of the work’Gen. Grant has under
taken, the , situation of. the enemy’s fortifications,'
aod the l oss to them should it foil into the .hands
of the besiegen, makes' them fight more deter,
minajly.and necessarily involves a great sacrifice
on the part of $e Union Army.
From pen. Grant's despatches it appears that
he baa strong hopes—in foct is confident—of cap
tnriag.ihe place. He does .■not fear Johnston in
his rear, hairing made provision for approaches in
that Bot the work of reducing the for
tificatfona and capturing the garrison may not be
accomplished speedily. Such is the situation, that
a force of not more than eight thousand can be
thrown 1 againit a single point at the same time,
although a hundred thousand might be ready to
advance. What number of men Gen. Grant has
under hint ,we do not knew, bnt we have the assu
rance that it.ia.anfficient for hfs purpose. He has
been, and still is being reinforced, but from whom
he draws his reinforcements it is nnwise to state.
We have our fours of the resole bnt hope they
are groundless. Knowing the character of the man
who commands, we feel sore the place will be oap
turedif it can be captured at all. Ere another
week passes, the fote of Vicksburg or Gen. Grant's
army wilt have been sealed, and we must wait as
patiently as possible.
PxnmKO Office MoßßEi>.-~The office of the
Monitor, at Huntingdon, was “gutted" by a party
of returned soldiers of the . 125 th 1 Regiment, on
Wednesday evening week. The incentive to this
action on the part of the soldiers was certain edi
torials which appeared in that paper which they
(the soldiers) considered treasonable. The press
was thrown out of the office and broken up, and
the type and papers scattered through the streets,
after which brooms were procured and the office
thoroughly swept out. The editor .made his escape
from rough usage by fleeing out of a back window.
A meeting of the friends of the paper mobbed,
was Held in Huntingdon, on. Friday last, for the
purpose of .re-establishing it. Although a collision
between the soldiers and those attending the
meeting was feared, we are pleased to learn that
everything 1 passed off qhietly. We have been

Letter from Washington. |
Washkotok, D. C., May 25, 1863. .
Eds, Tuibuite:—l haste to giveyou a sketch
of things in the Metropolis. For two days past
we have been hi ecstacies over the good neosfrom ;
Vicksburg and vicinity, and now wait with i
feverish anxiety for its official confirmation. — j
Every one admits that in results these successes |
of oar western army are * the most brilliant i
achievements of the war, and the value of these i
victories to our cause is incalculable. It is just |
what we need at this critical time to give hope i
and confidence to our loyal people and to cheer
them on to a speedy and glorious termination of
the war. It will inspire a glow of enthusiasm
among our troops and they willbc eager to outvie
each other in deeds of heroic valor.
While we have such good news from the South
west, you will be glad to know that Washington
is soft—and ail is quiet on the Potomac. But
“fighting Joe” is not idle, and he will yet finish
bis contract when his arrangements are complete.
He needs reinforcements and all the effective men
that can be spared are being sent to- him. The
formation of the Invalid Corps, os authorized by
General Orders 105, from War Department, is a
wise measure. It will relieve; the army of all men
not fully able to bear active field duty. They
will be organised for garrison duty and wifi re
lieve an equal of able-bodied men now on
such duty. We have-now nearly 40,000 men on
the defences of Washington. These brave men
and officers are “ spoiling for a fight” (so they
say) and they are to have a chance to distinguish
themselves on the battle-field os well as on the
streets of Washington, and the brave men and
faithful officers who have been wounded, or have
suffered in health while performing, their antics,
will be brought in to defend the Capitol, and
enjoy comfortable quanere and proper diet. This
is an act of justice, hufoanity and economy.
A great moral reformation, the Sunday morning
Chronicle Informs us, has been brought about in
this city, nnder the military ' administration of
Gen.' Martindale. Drinking houses are now
closed, at midnight and on Sunday, and it is a
rare sight to see a drunken soldier on the streets —
officers of course don’t get drank. This is a step in
the right direction and' Washington City may yet
become the worthy metropolis of the Republic.
Uncle Tom's Cabin is being performed here for the
first time, and attracts a full, house every night—
though not of the perfumed aristocracy, but of the
more sensible class of; the community. This is
significant here, showing how soon the sentiments
of the people have changed on the subject of
slavery. Verily “ the year of jubilee am coming.”
Yours truly, - O. B. SERVER.

[Curretpondatce of the Chicago Trihunr.\
Washington, May 13.—-'A draft for 300,000
men will shortly be ordered by the President for
the purpose of filftlg up the old regiments. It is
not the present intention to fo;rn any new regi
ments. There is no lime \o drill anil prepare reg
iment's for this campaign. Recruits-sent into old
regintents will be more tit for field service in thirty
days-than they would be in six months, if not lie far
belter fBr the conscripts that they tie assigned to
the old regiments and placed among the veterans
who have.experience in the routine and duties of
the camp, and who understand how t(i avoid many
things that injure the health and cause sickness.
The old bronzed warriors know ho.w to cook, wash,
sleep, camp, and march to the best advantage, and
can teach this valuable information to their new
Many friends of the Union are ftnpatiem at the
delay in ordering a draft, but it has been caused
in getting ready. '. Considerable time must neces
sarily be consumed in preparing fortps and instruc
tions for the deputies, printing them, and sending
them out. There was some time lost in selecting
a provost marshal general. x '
Cbl.Fty has got foe machinery of the draft
nearly and the appointments of the as
sistants for the districts are nearly all made. In a
few days more the enrolment will commence, to
be fojlowed by the draft ns speedily as possible.—
Those conscripted wilt’ be at once mustered into
service, uniformed, rationed, and assigned to their
regiments after a Jew days’ preliminary, instruc
tion. 'Hie regulations for the government of the
draft are already printed.
Bach State will be credited with the time for
which her troops have enlisted. One three years
man of Illinois will reckon as much as four nine
months men from Pennsylvania. If a draft for
300,000 men be ordered, not to exceed six or sev
en thousand will be required of Illinois—perhaps
not so many—rwhile Pennsylvania and New York
will each have to raise from forty to fifty thousand.
lint the most difficult thing- to determine in re
lation to the whole matter, is the proper construc
tion' of the 18th section of the conscription act. —
If it be construed to mean that the Government
most receive $3OO in commutation df service from
a conscript, than the purpose and intentions of the
law is in a great degree nullified ;and defeated.—
Suppose eveiy conscript offers $3OO, the Govern
ment .will not get « man if that cpnstrnction pre
vails.* If ifus 13 th section be construed os obliga
tory on the Government to receive money for per
sonal service, the act, it is folCwill la- a failure,
and the Government will beTpfrwifoouf the abili
ty to procure, men to fill np foe ranks of the wa
sted regiments. The few men that may he got
that are unable to raise fSOO will consist of those
haring the least interest in the perpetuity 6f the
Union, and consequently will make foe worst sol
tiie Secretary of War hold* that the act leaves
it as optional with him tesreceive money commu
tation as it is for the conscript to offer it. The
13(h section says that “ any.person drafted may
pay s3op,” “tosuch person as foe Secretary may
authorise to receive it,” ‘ifor the procuration of
snch substitute,” ft is obviously! foe intention of
thi section that, foe $BOO, if received, is to be paid
to some person who offers himself as a substitute.
The law makes no other provision for the use of
the money. The Secretary of War is not a Fed
eral treasurer. He gives no bond*—he Is not a fi
nancial officer. The assistant provost marshals
art not Federal treasurers, under bond, They
have do use for the commutation money, unless it
be; to pav it over directly to persons who have vol
unteered as substitutes. What foe whqle act calls
faif is men, not revenue. It is not a bill to raise
money to support foe Government, hilt to procure
able-bodied men to fight public enemies. Any
ofopr construction nullifies the jaw. The 13th
section should, therefore, be constt- ted iu harmony
with foe purpose and : object of the act, and not
technically in a way to render it abortive, to take
away the power of national self-defence, which is
stfoply suicide. The Secretary of War holds that
he is not bound to receive any conscript’s Ipdney
unless there is a “ substitute ”, standing ready to
take the money and serve in his place. This is a
.common sense view of .the act. Another question
1 is'jrised in'this connection: Isifjiotconstirnfion
al'i after drafting a body, of jljen, to let offthree
faprfos of them upon foe payment of a few dert
larsyaad to force the remaining fourth into foe
citinp and battle field ? It h certainly not ip ac
cordance with the principles <>f republican govern
-1 mat. . ■ \ : .
There are two methods proposed that will save
' the act from proving abortive. The - first is for
tire Secretary of War to appoint no agents to re
ceive the $BOO, as )t is clearly optional with him.
The act sayslie “may appoint a person” to re
-1 crave the money. Suppose he coticlodee he wont,
wijftt then ? Why, the conscript mast find his
own subttiiuteor go himself. This is the- shon. f 'irctlar to those Widk-aw.vke. to their \
blunt, Jftckaoniftn mode of solving the difficulty, ows Intkkksts. — The snhscri!>cr would respect

The Bum Maniac.
The writer of this sketch, was, upon a bright j
moonlight night, some twelve years ago, seated iu j
his room reading a few pages, as was his custom, ;
prior to retiring x to ret*t tor the niglit; when |
suddely he started up at the shrill sound of a i
female voice, calling for help. :
But let me pimply tell you the story —and vuung
man listen while I relate it. But a few steps
froth my own house lived a family, com- j
posed ot a widowed mother, five charming dmigh- j
ters, the oldest of whom was sixteen, and one son, |
himself the oldest of the children, and conscquentK
the one to whom the familiy looked as their pro
tector. But alas ! the nun-fiend had taken pos- j
session of him. The deadly, damning draught
had been poured fourth for him, and he had drank ;
until his brain had became fired, and on the eve
ning in.question had returned homo, after hours
of revelry and debauchery under the dread influ- :
ence of mnnin-potu, and it was his little sister
that called at my room door for help, la com
pany with my room-mate I immediately started
for the- scene of trouble, but scarcclv had we
emerged into the street until we saw him who was
the cause of thri midnight excitement. With coat
thrown otf, collar opened, long hair thrown
hack in wild confusion, and eyes Hashing an un
earthly tiie. which, yet, seemed to he cloudt d
with the raven wing of despair. 1 ahull never for

seemed all a wreck. With the shrill scream -if
what 1 would imagine a demons voice must be.
he darted toward us. crying aloud as he came, “ I
know your purpose they fiends, but I will nut
die." We caught him and carried him hack to
his homexand confined him and through the ivm-
mint of that night watched with him there, and
while we watched, we thought, men seek forget
fulness of sorrow, or, flv to drown the remern
•trance of some unexpected misfortune in the
flowing bowl. Then looking on this young man
in-his horrid affliction, we asked ourselves the
question. Who would not suffer any other—or all
other ills of life combined, rather than this? In
deed we thought, is it possible for human nature
to suffer a more complete and lamentable deg
Man, proud man, made to walk erect in the
conseiousness of a superior nature —the being that
stands lord of God’s creation, crouching in a
corner, flying from shadows, seeing shapes so dis
torted and hideous that sanity can form no con
ception of whgt they are 1 Qh! misery, indescrib
able. Young friends, (for it is for you we write,)
daring that long night, with chilled veins and
staring eyes, we gazed upon this young man. In
the corner of the room, the poor tortured wretch
was crouching, and peering fearfully around at a
swarm of flying serpents, which, he said, were j
darting through the room in all directions. -Bloat
ed terror was depicted in -his countenance; he
sprang frort the corner—flew from one position to
another in agonizing alarm; devils were pursuing
him, beforfe, behind, above and below; and all
around him objects of terror and danger appeared,
and- instruments’of death menaced him on every
hand. Big glaring eyes seemed as though they
would burst from their sockets. His exclamations
were so full of misery that onr hearts ached to
hear them. He called upon God in agony for
relief—then cursed him in bitterness; then again
his fit wotold assume another form; he would run
around the room, jump over benches, tables,
chairs, and call upon us to see him walk upon the
ceiling. Then he would rave for liquor—curse
the world and his gwn existence—again demand
brandy with wild gesticulations, and again sink
into grief nnd tears; complaining that all the
world was-leagned against him, and even devils
were employed to harrass and persecute him.—
Suddenly he fell into a sleep. We carried him to
a bed and there ho lay gasping in the air with
such dreadful contortions as made onr flesh creep
upon our bones.
With great core, good attention, and extraor
dinary skill on the part of the family and physi
cian, he recovered and was a man again. But
ah, young man, he resisted, but for a brief period
the gnawings of that fearful appetite—again fell,
and in less than three month from the date of the
scenes described above he filled a drunkard's

terror and deep profound sorrow, are the emotions
