PROPOSED BANKRUPT ACT.—A COM
mittee of the most respectable mer
chants of Now York, have prepared a
draft of an act for the consideration of
Congress, for a general bankrupt law.
This act has been framed by Mr. Wm.
Allen Butler, of that city, with as care
ful a view to the interest of creditors
as of honest and unfortunate debtors.
It combines the best provisions of the
New English bankrupt act, which has
lately taken effect, with those of the
French law, the United States act of
1841, and the Massachusetts insolvent
law. It provides for the full and un
conditional discharge of the debtor
upon the surrender of all his property
for distribution • without preference
among all his credito'rs, and upon his
compliance with the provisions of the
act. The assignees in bankruptcy are
to be appointed by the creditors, and
other efficient provisions are made to
guard their interests.
PENNA. LEGISLATURE.—Both branch
es of our State Legislature met and
axganized on Tuesday; the House by
the election of John Rowe, a Union
Democrat, as Speaker, and the Senate
by the election of Hon. Louis W. Hall,
as Speaker. George W. Hammersly
was elected clerk, and G. S. Berry, as-
Bistant clerk; F. L. Hitchcock, J. B.

air The war has solved many diffi
-cult problems, and dissolved many
plausible theories. It has proved the
military capacity of our people, and
disproved the noisy professions of de
votion to the Union of the Southern
deaders. It has shown that we are
~.capable of existing and of subsisting
-ourselves independent of foreign pow
-ere, and it has exploded the whole as
-suraption that the 13ritish aristocracy
have not desired tho overthrow of this
government. That problem which
may remain to be solved is, whether
the American people can successfully
resist domestic treason and European
fair- The patriots of the Revolution
never uttered a more noble sentiment
than Gov. Sprague, of Rhode Island
expressed, when he said, " Wealth is
useless unless it promotes the public
welfare, and life itself but a bauble un
less it ministers to the honor and glory
of our country." The nobility of this
sentiment is attested by the fact that
Gov. Sprague, who is- the :wealthiest
man in NOW England, has given from
his personal fortune immense sums to
promote the cause of the Union, and
has periled bib life in the foremost
ranks of the army upon the field of
Ate' The man Davis, whom we no
ticed in our Tuesday's issue, as being
suspicionod for killing his wife, was
brought to town and lodged in jail on
Tuesday evening. We have not learn
ed any farther particulars concerning
the case, more than that the bruises
we mentieued, were not ,of a serious
enough character to cause death.
WY' Napoleon Bonaparte punished
every dishonest army contractor with
death. Ile regarded every man who
sought to coin money by malpractice
upon the government, in a time of war,
as worse than a public foe.

THE OLD BELL AND THE NEW.-OD
last Wednesday, the old bell on our
public school-house, which had rang
out its merry peals over this borough
for sixty-three years, was taken down
and replaced by a new one.
The old bell bears the following in
scription : " Cast by Samuel Parher,
Phila., 1708. William Smith, D. D.,
to the Borough of Huntingdon, Juniata."
It was presented to this borough by
William Smith, D. D., proprietor of the
town, and was first placed upon the
old Court House, which stood in Smith
street, between Hill and Allegheny
streets, at that time the only public
building in the borough. This bell
up to the time of the erection of the
ono on the Presbyterian Church, was
the only one in the vicinity, and was
rang on all occasions for the sessions
of the Court, religious and town meet
lugs, elections, etc.
After the present Court House was
built, about the year 1843, the bell was
removed to the school-house where it I
served to call the schools together un
til on a frosty morning,l2th of Decem
ber last, it was broken in ringing.
The new bell weighs 406 pounds,
and was procured at the foundry of A.
Meneely's Sons, West Troy, N. Y .—
The weight of the old ono is 254 lbs.

REBEL ZANTIPPES.- - If you want to
make an angel, select a good woman
for the material ; and if you want to
make a real devil, just pick out a bad
one, especially if a secessionist. We
notice that the other day a fine cake
was sent to Mrs. Greenhow, a rebel
lady confined in Washington. Lieut.
Sheldon stuck a penknife into it in
several places, and striking a hard sub
stance, opened it, and found Treasury
notes, fives and tens, to a considerable
amount; also a letter, stating that ar
rangements had been made to effect
her escape and conveyance to Rich
mond, and naming the day and hour
of deliverance. When the lady found
out the discovery obtained from her
cake, her anger was uncontrollable.—
The Lieutenant bought her a nice new
cake and sent it to her, but she threw it
. A Baltimore widow, Mrs. Baxley,
was brought in to charge the prison of
Mrs. Greenhow and Mrs. Poole. She
was three days from Richmond with a
valuable "cargo." She had among
many little documents of value about
parts of her clothes and person, thin
papers hid in her hair. One of the
papers was a commission in the rebel
army for a young Baltimorean. She
refused to sleep under a blanket ?narked
"U. S." After being confined she
sent to an officer for different ones.—
She soon received notice to sleep under
them or go without.

General Jackson Retired from
Supposed Design of an Attack on

FREDERICK, Jan. 7.—The latest ad
vices from Hancock are, that last night
Gen. Jackson retired, leaving only a
battery and infantry guard in sight.
The result of the shelling has been un
important. One rebel officer was seen
to fall from his horse, and is believed
to have been killed. None are reported
wounded or killed on our side, not
withstanding the extravagant rumors
eircuiating-bore about our men baring
been cut up, etc., all of which rumors
Jackson's rebel force consisted of ten
regiments, with a large baggage and
supply train, and ten days cooked ra
tions. It is not known where he went,
but it is surmised that ho intends to
-attack Gen. Kelly's command. Gen.
Banks' Third brigade left hero yester
day morning and arrived at Hagers
town, twenty-six miles distant, at 5
o'clock yesterday evening. No strag
glers were left along the route. This
march was performed through three or
four inches of snow. They would prob
ably reach Hancock by noon to-day.

The Connecticut Fifth Regiment re
turned here last Thursday from Han

The Army of the West,
A correspondent of the Boston Jour
nal, in describing the army of the West,
There are two grand divisions of the
army west of the Alleghanies—tbat
commanded by General Buell, in Ken
tucky, and that commanded by Gen.
Halleck, in Missouri. There will soon
be a third, commanded by Gen. Lane,
in Kansas. Gen. Buell has all of Ken.
tueky east of Cumberland river. All
west of that, including Cairo, is in
General Halleck's division.
Gen. Buell's Main Army.
Turning to the southwest, we see a
line of railroad leading toward Nash
ville, Tennessee, from Louisville. Sev
enty-two miles down the line is Mun
fordsville, on the north bank of Green
river, which crinkles through the State,
turning, coiling and recoiling upon it
self in interminable curves. Here you
see the wreck of a noble bridge, which
the rebels destroyed, blowing up the
massive stone piers, and precipitating
the magnificent structure to the bot
tom of the river. Here, too, you can '
see the white tents of a hundred regi
ments. A thousand men are hard at
work upon the bridge, rearing a tem
porary structure. They have got it
well along, and in a few days it will be
complete. Crossing the river, and
turning ten miles toward the west, we
see the Mammoth Cave. Beyond, fif
teen or twenty miles, isßowling Green,
where the rebels are in strong position,
it is said, under Johnson and Buckner,
about forty thousand of them behind
entrenchments. Can they be shelled
out, or flanked? Looking once more
at the river, we find that it is naviga
ble for steamboats up to Morgantown,
which, as you observe, is quite a place
in Butler county. Looking straight
down toward the Tennessee line from
Morgantown, thirty miles distant, or
two days march, is Russellville, the
county seat of Logan, near the centre
of the county. It is in roar of Bow
ling Green, and on the stage road lead
ing from Morgantown to Russellville.
It is on the direeteourse toward Nash
ville, which is about fifty miles further
south. There are some Federal troops
near Morgantown, and at other places
on Green river, which can receive trans
portation by steamboats, provided the
river is not closed by ice. When Gon.
Buell is real* for them to move, un
doubtedly you will learn that Bowling
Green has a fire in the roar. The rebel
force at Bowling Green is variously es
timated. The rebels say one hundred
thousand, but I hear that that is bra
vado to blind Buell, and that the real
available force does not exceed fifty
thousand. Thee will telt which is the
All the territory in Kentucky west
of the Tennessee river is in Gen. fist
leek's division. Turning now our
telescope to that section, we see a pe
culiar configuration—the Ohio borders
on the north, the Tennessee the oast s
the Mississippi the west, inalqugan ox
bow, with the opening town i rd the
South. Measuring along th©to 'fine
between the Tennessee and the Missis
sippi, we find the distance not far from
seventy-five miles. Oh all sides but
the south there is a steamboat nayila
tism. The rebels have twenty Miles
on the Mississippi, and we have all the
The Tennessee is navigable for steam
boats to the Muscle Shell shoals,.which
are in the State of Alabanut. The riv
er is rarely frozen for any length of
time. It empties into the Ohio forty
eight miles above Cairo. At Paducah,
which stands at its mouth, we have
seven thousand men. There is a rail
road running to Union City, which you
observe is just over the Kentucky line.
Union City is on the Mobile and Ohio
Railroad, twenty-five miles from the
rebel stronghold at Columbus, and
about forty miles from Paducah. The
rebels have torn up a good deal of the
iron, and burned the bridges on the
line—not the army, but resident Seces
sionists who swarm in the ox bow.
Let us look closely at this section of
the country, for it is desirable to get
the rebels out of Columbus. Let us
steam up the Tennessee river. There
are no batteries on its banks. About
seventy miles from Paducah, you no
tice that we come to the railroad which
extends from Bowling Green to Mem
phis. We have already seen that this
line can be reached by the Cumberland
river; also, that there are Federal
troops not far from Hopkinsville, and
now we see that it can be directly
reached by the Tennessee river. Leav
ing the steamboat and taking the rail
road toward Memphis, which is one
hundred and fiftyseven miles distant
from the Tennessee river at this point,
we find at the town of Humboldt, only
seventy-five miles distant, a railroad
leading from Memphis to Columbus.
What if a strong Federal force should
get possession of Humboldt? The reb
els would find it difficult to hold Co
lumbus. True, they would have the
Mississippi, but Commander Foot, with
his gunboats, may have something to
say upon that part of the question. I
do not present this as having any ref
erence whatever to any contemplated
movement in the future, but merely to
show that, although the rebels have
strong positions at Bowling Green and
Columbus, Nature has given geograph
ical features—water-ways, admitting
of transportion—by which both of
those positions can be turned. The
only thing to be feared is an ice block
ade. Aside from the rivers, we have
rail communication. A Napoleonic
genius would see no difficulties worth
naming in turning the flanks of the
rebels at Columbus and Bowling Green,
or rather of breaking through the lines
and threatening Memphis and Nash
ville. Let our corninanders—McClellan
on the Potomac., Buell on the Ohio, and
Hailed: on the Mississippi—review the
military strategy of Gen. Wolfe; let
them remember how he searched every
nook and•corner, every ravine, every
crevice, every standing place along the
precipices of the St. Lawrence, to find
a way of reaching tho heights above,
where Quebec was held by Monteahn ;
let them call to mind his determination
to gain a position and force the enemy
to fight; let them remember his glori
ous success, and improve the opportu
nities to crush rebellion, and make for
themselves a name forever to be hon
ored by their fellow-mon.
The Progress of the War,
Th . orn tiq denying.• the fact that
theiVlSlOnsitte - rable'restfcs-
public mind on account of the slow
progress which is apparently being
made by our armies into the Rebel
States. But it must be remembered
(says the Baltimore Clipper) that since
General McClellan has entered upon
the duties of Commander-in-Chief, a
number of important movements have
been made, all of which are thus far
successful, except an unaccounted for
blunder on the Upper Potomac, which
no doubt was the result of inattention
to 'specified orders. These movements
are also generally preliminary to oth
ers wliieh are to follow on a more gi
gantic scale, and may be considered as
important steps in the progress of the
war. We may wBll therefore be con
tent to " make haste slowly." A bat
tle by tb& main army near Washing
ton, may determine the fate of the
rebel confederacy; let their army there
be defeated, and they can never rally
another to supply its place: The back
bone of their rebellion is thus broken,
and although a guerilla warfare may
be carried on for some time longer, still
their hopes of success will be forever
blasted, and every State will be found
looking out for its own interest, and
taking care, it may be, that justice is
awarded to their respective leaders
who have duped them into their un
happy position. Mighty armaments
are being now fitted out, and will
probably be ready within a week Or
ten days—and no doubt as soon as the
word is sounded along the line that
•" all's ready," a movement will be
made which will tell with astounding
effect, and prove to the rebels who
some time since taunted the loyal men
of the Union with the charge 1 / 4 0at we
had no Government, that it is in full
operation, and able to vindicate the
honor and integrity of the Union.
Those who have read the history of
the wars in. the Peninsula, in Europe,
will remember that Lord Wellington
was subject to the sneers of the
ians and people at home, from the same
cause that Gen. McClellan's course is
now objected to. It could not be di
vined by out-siders why an army such
as he had in camp should so long re
main apparently inactive—but Wel
lington knew well that he was gaining
strength daily by the more perfect
discipline of his forces, and that when
ho did etriko the stakes were for
more than one kingdom, (Spain and
Portugal,) and that he had better wait
five years than to risk a battle before
he could find himself perfectly pre
pared to secure success—and the result
fully verified his wisdom.
So it is with Gen. McClellan—the
fate of the rebellion so fitr as its con
tinuance for another year is concerned,
is dependant on the battles that may
possibly have been fought ere this
reaches many of our readers, and may
not come off for weeks to come—a de
lay conscpcntly of a few days, weeks,
months, is of but secondary conse
place, in comparison to the importance
of the result. Let our young gonorni
have cllr centißgedknnfideiieti, - and )et
ourpatienc©lie eXereised to the extent;
that when he does Make the debisive
Pi*, 'the result will prove the wisdom
of his gene ' ship by its decisiveness
iii the contest. A cotemporary speak
ing upon the subject very properly re-
" The delay has been worth a score
of victories. It has converted raw
levees into a well-disciplined army, and
taught them to handle weapons ; it has
replaced incompetent with skilful offi
cers; it has multiplied indefinitely our
artillery and munitions of war; it has
very nearly completed several expedi
tions, the success of which is scarcely
a matter of doubt; it has placed de
tachments of the army at points from
which they may advance with the
best warrant of triumph; it utilized
those vast contributions of money
which popular patriotism poured into
" To the enemy it has brought no
benefits. Theirfinancial crudities have
already resulted in failure; they are
destitute of the necessaries of life; their
army is half clad, and utterly unprovi
ded against the inclemency of winter.
Food is held at famine prices. Busi
ness of all kinds is suspended. The
Richmond usurpation has taken pos
session of all the railroads, and uses
them for the transportation of troops
and supplies, to the exclusion of ordi
nary traffic. Specie is at 40 per cent.
premium. The Banks are insolvent.
The circulating medium is worthless;
there are no credits; merchants, whose
stocks are exhausted, can nowhere re
new them. Ruin, in short, reigns
everywhere supreme; and discontent,
which the news of a peaceful settlement
of our issue with England, must con
vert into utter despair, is universal.—
All these consequences of delay have
enured to the advantage of the Govern
ment, and must render the progress of
its arms, when it is inaugurated in full
force, absolutely irresistible. And it
will then be seen whether or not the
plans of the Administration have been
wise and far-seeing, and whether the
Northern or the Southern type of fret
fulness is the more reasonable."
