Our Flag Forever
We have not the time nor the incli
nation, to dun personally, a large num
ber of persons who have unsettled ac
counts upon our books of several years
standing. We shall, therefore, from
day to day, without respect to persons,
place into the hands of a Justice for
collection, all accounts of over two
years standing. All those who wish
to save expense, will do well to. give
its a call immediately.
All Orphans' Court printing, including Administrator's
and Execntor'a Notices, all Andltor's Notices, occasional
pdvertissments, An, must hereafter be paid for in advance.
pxecmtots and Administrators owing us at present, will
please come forward and settle.
le' We thank God that we have
been permitted to live in . these days of
secession and rebellion, and invoke the
Great Ruler to spare our lives until
-we have seen every vestige of it con
signed to a base, ignoble grave. For
•the ingratitude practiced by the lead
ers of this unholy, unjust and bell-born
rebellion, we would write for their
epitaph, the strong and emphatic
words of G. Carroll Judson :
'• Avaunt I thou thing infernal
Extract of basenen; essence of blackness I
Ergot ofinaannees; concentrated poison!
Spawn of the adder; fuel of hell!
Thy breath le pestilence; thy touch Is poison!
Damning Ingratltudo 1"
After this has been done, then—and
not till then—would we be willing to
lay ourselves down to die. We could
then behold for the last time, the set
ting sun, and greet the darkness which
would close in upon us, with joy and
gladness. After making sure of our
: safe arrival into the portals of eternal
.bliss, our next greatest object would
be accomplished—the preservation of
this Union, unhonored and unimpaired.
We could then leave the world without
*a single regret. It would be glorious
.on one's death-bed to know that his
government had conquered internal
foes, and set the rest of the world at

adjourned over from Thursday last to
Monday. The Standing Committees
have been appointed, and we may ex

will immediately commence. An im

" Resolved, That frauds upon the
„general government by individuals, or
:connivance on the part of those in au
thority to permit peculation on the
treasury, should be made during this
rebellion punishable by death."
We don't believe the resolution will
reeeive the unanimous vote of Senators.

As Usu.b.L.—While in Harrisburg
last week, we noticed that some fifteen
or twenty of the Camp Crosman "Irish
Brigade" were still in town, their reg
iment having left some days previous.
They were under the care of their
Captain, who had them placed in the
" lock-up " over night for safe keeping.
The mon wore a little "high," and the
Captain was drunk, but he was an of
ficer, and was allowed to travel around

privates behave bad when their officers
are permitted to behave worse.

our vessels continue to capture prizes
as they have dono lately. The cargo
of coffee taken at the mouth of the
Mississippi was worth $150,000 or
$200,000. Several valuable prizes have
lately been taken near Savannah.—
The cotton which we are getting from
Port Royal is a very handsome contri

it must not be forgotten that almost
the whole of it merely changes hands

WASHINGTON, lan. 14.—The Pi•esi
dent desires it to be understood that
no circumstance connected with the
recent change in the Cabinet has in
any way impaired his confidence in
General Cameron, or disturbed the
.armony existing bet Ween him and
the Administration. The name of Mr.
Stanton was suggested to the Presi
dent by General Cameron himself, as
largely possessing the qualifications fit
ting him for the post of Secretary of
War, and enjoying the unbounded con
fidence of the commanding General.—
The names of Mr. Ilolt and General
Dix had been previously mentioned,
and the appointment of the former was
for a short time regarded as deter
Mr. Stanton was ignorant of a like

nearly the moment when he was sent

six days. Mr. Stanton is the legal ad

McClellan, and the confidence between
them is reciprocal.

His camp, which was within the
Cherokee Territory, was attacked by
a force of 3,500 Texas Rangers, with
the rebel half-breeds of both the Creeks
and Cherokees, who had formed a junc
tion with the Texans. The Creek chief
had two thousand five hundred Creeks,
Seminoles and Wickapoos, and were
joined by two hundred and fifty loyal
Cherokees. A great number of the
rebels were killed in the fight, among
whom the Texan General Cooper, and
Lewis Mclntosh, an officer of the rebel
Creeks. The loyal Indians lost four
teen men, among whom were six Creeks
and four Cherokees.
These men have much valuable in
formation which I shall take down for
the benefit of the Commissioner of In
dian Affairs, and of course for the use
of any other officer of the Government
who may desire it.
These men brought some kind of
papers with them from the camp, and
handed them to some of the Delaware
Chiefs to be sent to the headquarters
of Major General Hunter. I have not
seen the papers, but as the loyal Indi
ans had not a single white man among
them, it is possible the papers may
lack much of regular forms, but yet
may be the genuine expression of the
minds of the parties.

Ilammon's command came up the river
on Sunday night and burned the depot
and blacksmith's shop, and took all
the goods from the store, of Mr. Mils

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 1862.
"6h DEAR SIR: * * * * * * The
night of the rebellion has passed, and
the dawn is about breaking. Before
the present month has gone these
things will surely come to pass: Gen.
llalleck, with the great flotilla, and an
army of one hundred thousand strong,
will sweep like an avalanche down the
Mississippi, where they will be joined
by Gen. Butler in New Orleans and
Mobile. Gen. Buell, with nearly, or
quite the same force, will march into
Tennessee, capture Nashville, and co
operate with the Union forces in a
manner and direction it would not be
politic now to point out. Guns. Rose
crane and Kelly will advance from
Western Virginia and do their share
in harmony with the general plan.—
Gens. Banks and Stone will move in
conjunction with the rest from the Up
per Potomac. Gen. Burnside will do
his appointed work in Virginia. Gen.
Sherman will explain by deeds, not
words, his inaction. Gen. McClellan
will force the rats from their holes at
Manassas, attack them at three points
at once, and will fulfill his modest
pledge, that the war will be "short but
desperate." Ido not give you more
than the general outline of these sim
ultaneous movements. The details of
the grand plan of' this campaign will
startle the world, and vindicate Gen.
McClellan's high reputation for milita
ry strategy. The men and supplies
are now, for the first time, nearly
ready. The delays, caused mainly by
'red-tape' and imbecile fossils in and
out of the departments, and by thiev
ing contractors and material men, will
be accounted for, and the blame placed
whore it belongs. A premature move
ment would have deranged the plan
of the whole campaign, which is so
perfect that success is certain. A bad
move, untimely made, might have haz
arded the game. The impending mate
is close at hand in a limited number of
forced moves. The loss of a piece
here or there, the defeat of one or an
other division of the army, cannot
affect or prolong the result. The com
binations are so perfect that failure is

An Improved Tone in the Canadian
Press--" The Canadians do not
Sympathize with the South."
(From dm Toronto Olobe, 9th Instoutl
The Leader has been compelled to
acknowledge its mistake in seeking to
excite bad feeling between Canada and
the United States. Public indignation
has been manifested against it in a
manner which its publisher knows how
to appreciate; the agent of Joff Davis
is no longer editor, and an apology for
his misdeeds has been inserted. The
amende takes the form of a disclaimer
(in double-leaded type) that the Gov
ernment are responsible for the organ's
incendiary career. The Government
undoubtedly hoped at first to make
political capital by raising the war
feeling, but the organs overdid the
work—the cloven foot was seen—the
reaction in the public mind is complete,
and hence the disclaimer. The home
organ, the Quebec Chronicle, has also
changed its note. A few weeks ago it
recommended the British Government
to break the blockade, now it says:
"It is surely for the interest of the
States, as well as of these colonies,
that we should live together in amity..
We are nearly three millions of people,
and we hope soon to be more. -If the
Union is to be permanently divided
into two or more Confederacies, it
may happen that each of these will
think our custom an object of compe
tition. If it is to be reunited, it would
surely be better that the population
on both sides of the boundary should
continue to be friends—assisting each
other in the - development of their int
tidPnal resources; encouraging and ex
tending reciprocal trade; - and break
ing down yet further the barrier to
mutually profitable intercourse. We
hope, then, that the Administration of
the States which now controls the press,
may see to it that moderation is intro
duced into the tone of the leading
American journals, or else make such
a declaration of their sentiments to
wards this country as will counteract
the evil effects that have already been
produced by licentiously abusive news
This is excessively cool. The I.lh.ron

HEALTH OF JEFF. DAVIS (IN A HORN.)
—At a festival on some occasion among
the soldiers in Missouri, one of the
men from Adrian offered the following
extravagant sentiment, which we copy
from a Missouri paper:
"Jeff Davis—May ho be set afloat in
an open boat, without compass or rud

swallowed by a shark, and the shark
swallowed by a whale, the whale in
