" I know of no mode in which a loyal citi

his country as by sustaining the Flag the

The War 110W8 during the past week
have not been of much interest. The
armies on both sides aro practically in
winter quarters, and no movements of
moment are likely to be made North
of Gens. Gilmore's and Banks' Depart
ments before spring. Gen. Grant tins
withdrawn his army around Chatt lu
ooga, where he can procure supplies
readily, and will winter there; Sher
man has East Tennessee safe and wilt
be content to hold it, and Meade is on
the'Rappahannock where he must re
main until a spring campaign can bo
executed. We hope by that time to
have armies so strong that when the
old Flag advances it • will "take no
step baokward."
General Averill with his brave cav

northward, ho found four divisions of
Rebels in his path, determined to fin

and rushing by the Rebels without
stopping to fight, ho came off with the
loss' of a few sick and less than 100 ef

country, General Averill's men have
done wonders.

TuLtanomn, Dec. 21, 1863.
EDITOR GLOBE :—Wonders appear !
to have ceased for the present, and •
consequently there is no feast to offer
those whose appetite for daily surpri
ses is unappeased. They may, how
ever, find some solace in the assurance
that as soon as this great military ma
chinery is sufficiently lubricated a new
volume of marvels will be issued. Un
til that time. we may eontent ourselves
with the delightful retrospect afforded
by recent events, and confidently in
dulge in bright anticipations.
.It is a source of gratification to see
the rapidity with which veteran vol
unteers are being added to qur army.
The old soldiers arc re-enlisting with
alacrity, and the indications are that
the veterans will form no small pro
portion of the troops that will remain
in the field after the expiration of the
three year term. In this corps, which
may be taken as an index to others,
the movement is not confined to indi
viduals, or even to small numbers, but
the provisions and benefits offered by
the Government are embraced by
regimente, en-masse. During last week
the 29th Penna. Vole., went North,
'having fulfilled the condition necessa
ry to secure them a furlough of thirty
days. They will soon be fbllowed by
other regiments, of which I may name
the 2nd Mass., 2d Wisconsin, and part
of the 46th Penna. It is needless to
add words in praise of these bravo
men. They will find their reward in
their own hearts, and the hearts of
their countrymen. That they are
willing to endure *another term of
privations and sacrificed is a signifi
cant illustration of the spirit that pre
dominates in the army. It indicates
a determination to persevere in the
glorious work of preserving the Union
of these States, to "fight till the last
armed foe expires." It expresses con
ficlence in the ability of the Govern
ment to crush the rebellion, confidence
in our commanders, and confidence in
the national administration. Would
that that spirit prevailed everywhere,
that the universal sentiment of our'
soldiers had due weight beyond the
lines, that it had the power to at:milli- 1
late Northern eopperheadisin and
treason as effectually as our arms are
destined to eradicate similar princi
ples from Southern soil.
The Proclamation of Amnesty_came
unexpectedly, but we all agree in say
ing that it has not come. too soon. It
is important to us, and will soon be
much more so to the South, to know
on what terms the - avenging hand of
the Nation may be stayed, and how
noble is the position she has assumed.
She relaxes her-stern polity to.pity,
and in her irresistible poiverthestoops
to mercy. This course she pursues to
the furthest extent that justice and
the cause of good government will al
low. Those who have been the au
thors of sectional animosities, the in
stigators of treason, and the leaders of
rebellion, are reserved for the' fate
that the common sentiment of the
whole world would award to them.
This proclaims us to be a nation at
once firm, just, and merciful, meting
out punishment'
whom the inost
demand it
But though the course to be pursu
ed in this matter is plainly marked
out for us, there is a case that cannot
be met in the same manner. There
is no civil law applicable to the crime
of which the Northern -copperheads
have been guilty. Freedom of tho't
and speech have been used to the det
riment of the government that insures
them so wide a province. And
there really no punishment? Arc
those who have refused to stand by
their country in this hour of her peril
to move among us hereafter with un
blemished escutcheons ? Are their
reputations to be fair and unpolluted ?
Let it not be so. The power of public
opinion should make itself felt. Not
one should escape the moral lashing
hat in-tin duo, and -what catty in time
prove efficacious.
Hospital 3d Division, Ist A. a 1
Dec. 22d 1863.
Dear Globe :—I think I wrote to
you from Rappahannock Station,
whither we moved from Warrenton
Junction, and remained long enough
to make arrangements for the comfort
of the patients; then broke up, and
once more crossed the Rappahannock
to Paoli Mills, a locality not found- on
the map. It is said to bo no great dis
tance from Kelley's Ford. In this vi
cinity, the army of our "Southern bre
thorn" had illustrated their ideas of
rural architecture by building several
good sized villages of comfortable log
buts. Hero, no doubt, they proposed
to winter; but the exposed condition
of Gen. hleade's army excited their
fraternal sympathies, to such a de
gree, that they abandoned
their cosy cabins to us, and we, "van
dals" as wo aro, occupy them. As
this eminent instance of southern
moderation seems to have escaped the
notice of the copperheads, I mention
it for their benefit. I fear however,
that even this surpassing exhibition of
"brotherly kindness" has been lost up
on the "Hessians" and the "Inneoln
The removal of a hospital at this
season of the year, is only to be excu
sed when unavoidable. Some time is
necessarily spent in fitting up the new
quarters, before the patients can bo
made comfortable, and in the interval,
exposure decides fatally cases that
previously gave hope of a favorable
termination. At present our patients
are as well provided for as any prob
ably in the army of the Potomac.
Three large hospital tents are joined
forming one apartment. A channel
is cut through the entire length, and
covered with railroad iron. At prop
er distances from the tent, this pas
sage terminates, at one end is a chim
ney, and at the other is a furnace. A
good heating apparatus is thusformed.
It requires a prodigious amount of
wood, but forests - of oak are round us,
and the former proprietors generously
permit its consumption, without re
monstranea. N. B.—Said quondam
proprietoo aro not at home. Query.—
Where erg' they?—Respectfully refer
red to hiaseby.
Our heppital comprises three wards
similar to the One above dekeribed,
and contains 78 patients. For some
tiniarpast an unusual and startling
mortality has prevailed, in several
hospitals, though how much of it is
traceable to the cause I have mention
ed, lam unable to say. At present,
there is a visible improvement; how
much of it is owing to the comfortable
character of the quarters now occ.l
- by the troops, I must also de
cline to decide.
• A sad incident occurred lately, ilhis
trative of the vanity of earthly !lopes,
and the suddenness with which hu
man schemes and prospects vanish in
to air. There is a great scarcity of
boards for constructing bunks, and ho
is counted specially fortunate who se
cures even a limited suyply. A man
of one of the Maryland regiments,
showed to his captain an excellent
board, and related, with great glee,
the adroit manner in which he had
secured it. Only a few days after
ward, the same board was used, to
form the bottom of a coffin, in which
the body of the same man was sent to
the embalmer's, and thence to his
wife ! "Poor woman !" said one of
his comrades to me, "it will set her
crazy." "He was a good man" re
marked his captain, sadly; "I was
very much attached to him, and he to
We have had cold weather 'during
the present month, and one rain-storm
of the true Virginia type, which left
us hi the mud, and probably put a
quietus on a contemplated movement.
Thc - nsual symptoms of a move were
appearing when th 6 rain came, since
which we have hoard nothing of it.
The most regular, handsome and
comfortable camp in the Division, is
agreed on all hands, to be that of
149th Pa. In visiting Co. I, I could
not avoid contrasting their present
really comfortable ar,d genteel cabins
with the miserable excavations in
which we burrowed last winter, at
Belle Plain. Two ,of the company
have gone home on furlough; Samuel
Foust, and J. S. Gillam, who we hope
are now enjoying the felicities of "home
sweet home." Others aro patiently
waiting their turn. J. S. B.

Afford Protection or Pay High Prices
MR. EDITOR: Within the last few
weeks several articles have appeared
in the papers of this and other cities
in reference to the high price of an
thracite coal. Some writers ascribe
this result to the avariciousness of the
colliery operator; others have cast the
- odtinn, pon-4.1.41_ traisspotti nx compa
nies. As most of these animadversions
have created unfavorable improstions
in regard to the general coal trade, it
may not be considered impolitic again
to advert to this subject.
While the scarcity of a commodity
'invariably adds to its value, it ,should
not bo inferred that this value is en
tirely regulated by its producer. Al
though the evjl to which we refer in a
great measure may bo attributithlo to
designing speculators and combina
tionists, it is thought that something
may be said, which, while partially ex
onerating the colliery operator, may
satisfactorily trace to a considerable
extent the high price of coal to other
and more alarming causes.
In general our mining population is
composed of a conglomeration of
nations. In most instances the
foreign miner comes to our shores from
a home, if it may be so called, where
he has lived in the most abject condi
tion. These emigrants arrive with
visionary and exalted conceptions ; the
good tidings of their friends and the
fullness and plenty around - them, in
duce the belief that they are entitled
to the most extravagant compensation.
Comfortless, oppressed by excessive
taxation, humiliated by the sad fact
that they are born to live and die with
out oven a glimmering hope of ad
vancement, naturally germinates the
seeds of discontent; resistance follows
oppression; their dejected state in their
Dative districts results in combinations
to oppose still further degradation.—
Contaminated and prejudiced, the em
igrant miner seeks the asylum of Ame
rica. Hero be tastes-the cup of plen
ty, and plucks from the tree of Free:
dom that which in his own country ho
has been taught to consider the for
bidden fruit. Although retrospective
ly happier and more prosperous, yet
ambition, with the idea that still more
can be gained, finally leads him to in•
ter that his native shackles aro still
about him. Thus, through ignorance
and superstition, ho rudely and ungon•-
erously strikes. That the difficulties
and losses which not unfrcquently oc
cur to the operator may be more fully
appreciated, perhaps it may be proper
hero briefly to allude to the nature of
these outbreaks.
to those out for
exacting cx gcncten
M. S. L
Strikes, as they arc tech nically term
ed, often I.rise from the most trivial
causes, without a moment's warning
-,r the least provocation. Indeed, tho
operations of an entiro coal region for
months have been suspended by the
mere dismissal of ono evil-doer, who,
without previous intimation to his fol
low or his employer, in retaliation,
posts a notice at the pit's mouth that
no work can be done under the penal
ty of death. Thus the evil spirits are
aroused, and the honest plodding labo
rer intimidated.
So it is, and so it has been for the
last eighteen months: Colliery opera
tors have boon subjected to these sud
den and unavoidable contingencies.—
When the peculiarities of their business
are considered, the extent of the capi
tal employed, and the heavy and con
stant expenses incurred, it cannot be
otherwise than that the losses from
these disasters add to the price of coal.
Some of the desperadoes who settle
in our mining regions, known in their
own country as members of regularly.
organized societies, encouraged bYthe
scarcity of labdr, and stimulated by the
leniency of our free institutions, have
organized themselves into similar com.
bivations in our coal districts, assu ming
in various localities different titles, in
order, if possible, -to disguise the
strength and purposes of their associa
tions. We are advised that their ob
ject is to prevent emigration from ono
colliery to another, to restrict the en
ergy and industry of the respectable
foreigner who refuses to co-operate; to
secure labor for themselves; to direct
who shall and who shall not bo em
ployed; to regulate the cost of labor;
to dictate the price of mining, and to
control the operations of each colliery.
By those unlawful means are governed
at this time the great extl interests of
the United States. Operators, manu•
facturers and consumers, strange as it
for Coal.
may appear, aro alike sustaining these
malicious combinatimis.
The pebple of a free country who
generously offer homes to the foreign
miscreant are thus rewarded. To these
causes, and not altogether to the cu
pidity of tho coal operator or transpor
ting companies, it is thought may be
ascribed to a great-extent the present
high price of coal ; So long as the col
liery operator is exposed td these dis
asters, so long as his production is cur
tailed and his business taxed, with the
consequent losses, the community must
either pay high prices for coal or else
assist in overcoming the evils to which
we advert.
It is thought that this can 1) o accom
plished. Legislation is required which
will more effectually guard the inter
ests of the coal producer, by which
capital will be encouraged to import
from Europe the better and moro re
liable classes, securing to it in the la
bor of the emigrant the money inves
ted in ameliorating his condition. Pro
tection shoUld be given to the energy
and industry of the respectable miner,
who comes to our country in search of
an honest livelihood; above all, laws
should be enacted, and if necessary,
the bayonet should be employed to
crush the outbreaks of the "Molly in
quires" and "Buckshot Rangers,' who
disgrace our mining regions.
We arc informed at this time that
the operationi of one of the most pro
ductive collieries in this State have
been suspended for two months, sim
ply because its owners declined to dis
charge a worthy, enterprising work
man, whose intelligence and conscien
tious scruples prohibited his member
ship to one of these malicious institu
tions disguised under the plausible ap
pellation of the "Union Benevolent
Our coal regions, relieved of these
restrictions, with the abundance of
capital seeking investment, and the
extensive developments of the last 18
months in the various coal fields of
Pennsylvania, with the "many that
would necessarily follow, we feel satis
fied, ore long, would place this essen
tial commodity beyond the avaricious
grasp of the designing speefila.tor, and
amply reward each and every one, by
the supply overreaching the demand
in gaining the necessary legislation to
accomplish this important purpose.
We are gratified to hear that the
formation of a Coal :Exchange in this
city is:in contemplation. Its first and
principal effort should be to sustain
the honest laborer and adopt such a
policy as would counteract the influ

employment to the recreant.
Each branch institution should tax
its members for its support, according
to their respective tonnage. The sec
retary of each branch society should
report the names of all miscreants to
the secretary of the Coal Exchange,
whose duty it should be to transmit
them to the various branch societies
of Pennsylvania; such men when thus
advertised Would be 'excluded from
occupation in our mining districts. May
we hope that•if this should he the ob
ject of the Coal-Exchfeet
with the united and cordial support, of
the producers, consumers, and trans
porters of coal.
ft is thought that enough has been
said, at least to partially exonerate
the colliery operator from all the cen
sure which has been implied, and it is
believed that when the policy of the
President of the great coal-carrying
road of our State has been justly scru
tinized, the liberal and generous course
which has influenced him will be most
fully sustained.

The last remains of one gallant corn•
mender• of the Union army_ lame
scarcely-been—consigned to thetomb,
before another has been called from
the scenes of his usefulness and valor.
Brig. General Michael Corcoran, after
nearly three years of devotion to the
Union cause, during a great portion of
which period ho was almost daily ex
posed to death by the shells or bullets
of the enemy, died last evening of in
juries received by falling from his
horse. Born in Carrowkeel, County
Sligo, Ireland, September 21st, 1827,
he came to this country in 1840, and
selected Now York city for his future
place of abode. In 1858, as the senior
Captain of the celebrated Sixty-ninth
Regiment, ho gained an honorable re
putation among the military of New
York. In August, 1859, ho became
Colonel of the regiment, and was bro't
more prominently into notice by his
refusal to order out his command to do
honor to Prince Albert, a bold step,
which led to a court-martial, but be
fore the trial had terminated the war
commenced, and the proceedings were
quashed. In April, 1861, he took his
regiment to Virginia, and participated
in the first battle of Bull Run. Ris
heroism in that engagement, and the
gallantry of his mon, are still vividly
remembered by the country; and eve
ry loyal citizen received with profound
regret the tidings of his capture on
that memorable day by the enemy.—
Taken to Richmond, and from thence
to almost every government prison in
the South, he was finally selected as
one of the captives who should be ex
ecuted if the Union authorities hung
certain captured pirates. Alter refu
sing to accept release on condition he
would not again bear arms against the
South, ho was in August, 1862, releas
ed, and was soon after appointed Brig
adier General, his commission bearing
date from the battle of Bull Run. Up
on his return from Richmond ho was
received with the most flattering ova
tions in every Northern city through
which he passed. lle subsequently
was ordered to Suffolk, whore, in the
numerous oiligagements and skirmish
es fought in that section of Virginia,
he again distinguished himself. Re
cently he has been stationed in the vi
cinity of Fairfax Court Rouse, near
which place, it is stated, he received
his fatal injuries. While stationed at
Suffolk he had an unfortunate affair
with Colonel Kimball, resulting in the
death of the latter, but the verdict of
the country was unanimous in favor
of him whose sudden 'death we are
now called upon to chronicle.
Prom the Army of the Potottlac.
No Retrograde Movement—The Rebels
not Disposed to Assume the Offensive
—Mitters to Comp.
Washington, Dec. 22.—Information
from the Army of the Potomac to
night, says there is no indications of
a retrograde movement toward Wash
ington, as has been reported; nor is it
believed that' the enemy, in their pre
sent condition, arc able to give much
annoyance. Their cavalry, which are
diminishing considerably in our front,
are not equal to the task of making .
any formidable raid on our base of
supplies, owing to the impoverished
condition of their horses. The insuffi
ciency of shoes and blankets, if the
information of deserters can be relied
upon, renders it equally 'improbable
that Lee's infantry can be called from
their strong position and comfortable
shelters to undertake a campaign dur
ing the rigors of winter. '
Tho probable number of ro.enlist
moots into the veteran corps from the
army of the Potomac is estimated at
probably ten thousand.
The Thirty Days' Furlough
The delay in indicating the precise
date of the thirty days' furlough has
caused many to reconsider their first
intention. The desire to vi4it their
homes during th.o holidays has proved
more powerful than the liberal boun
ties offered for re-enlisting.
Five and perhaps six companies of
the MI New York have re-enlisted.
and are expected to start homeward
on Wednesday. This regiment has
for a long time been filling the respon
sible position of headquarters and pro
vest guard. During that period over
20,000 prisoners have been received
and turned over by them to the au
thorities at Washington. The regi
ment is temporarily commanded by
Lieut Col. Butler
The Oneida Cavalry, Captain Mann,
an independent company attached to
the Quartermaster's Department. are
also re-enlisting, and will probably be
sent home to recruit.
The first Maryland Cavalry, Major
Thistle:on, aro also making rapid
movements in the same direction.

St. Louis, Dec. 21.—The Democrat
has advises from Fort Smith, Arkan

attack was made on the outposts of
Fort Gibson on the 17th by the forces
under Standwaite, 1,600 strong. The
attack was repulsed, and the rebels
tell back, pushing his force across the
Arkansas, below Fort Gibson, and mo-,
yin.: northeast.
The 3d Wisconsin cavalry has just
returned from a successful reconnois
sance southward: They were within
15 miles of Red river, when, finding
that the enemy had changed their po
sition since last nth:ices, they were un
able to proceed farther. Their return
was a,constant succession of skirmish
es for over 100 miles, strong bodies of
.onemy being posted on all the
crossroads to intercept them. They
cut their 'way through, and in some
places evaded the rebel hosts by tak
ing blind mountain passes. Their loss
is trifling. Among the prisoners cap
tured is the notorious Handy Lane,
who boasts of baring killed over 100
Union citizens with his own hands.
Information has been received that
two-thirds of Kirby Smith's forces aro
preparing to attack Little Rock, and
that the balance, anticipating that
ItlcNeill's force will be drawn away to
reinforce General Steel, are to fall on
Fort Smith.

"A private letter from a lady at

State, gives the particulars of a most
mysterious outrage which was perpe

When refused they threatened to break

Rebel Conscription.
In the rebel Congress, a few days
since, Mr. Sparrow, of Louisiana, as
chairman of a committee, offered a re

either to his own constituents, if he has
any, or to the residents generally of
the South. When the rebellion first
commenced, the younger shoots of the
chivalry, under the impression that
they were about to engage in a series
of exciting sports, something similar
to the tournaments with which the
visitors at Fauquier Springs were for
merly' wont to be annually amused,
eagerly enlisted, in obedience to the
calls of the Southern leaders. The
mourning garb of thousands of fami
lies, and the large number of mutila
ted youth who walked the streets of
every city, town and hamlet south of
Mason and Dixon's line, show how dif
ferent has been the result of the enlist
ment from what was anticipated. Mr.
Sparrow, however, is under the im
pression that the sacrifice is not - yet
compiete, and in his :report recom
mends that all white male residents
between the ages of sixteen and fifty
five shall be conscripted, those bo
tween eighteen and fortyfive to serve
in the field, and the others to belong
to a reserve corps, for garrison duty
within the limits of their State, but
who may be ordered beyond those lim
its when emergency may require.—
, Who can imagine the feeling, with
which Southern parents mitr'. regard
the provisions of this act, which wrests
from their embrace the remaining re
presentatives of their once happy
homes; and who, unless lie has been
similarly situated, can realize the an
guish and remorse which must afflict
those parents, when they see their in
nocent boys snatched from their
hearthstones by the minions of a des
pot and forced into the military ser
vice ? The retribution, horrible as it
may appear to Ihe bereaved father or
the sorrowing mother, is only what
they might have anticipated when
they consented to uphold a conspiracy
against a just government. Many
have boon doubtless forced into the
ranks, and. ' to them we extend our
sympathies • but we have no compas
sion with those who have voluntarily
aided in the continuance of the rebel
' lion. They threw down the gauntlet,
and it was raised by the Government
' of the United States, at the request of
millions of devoted patriots, who will
battle, if needs be, until the death, of
every man in the South capable of
bearing arms, compels the,summonsto
repent the act in sacitotn .
