Bfthseda Church, noith c-r It, wi held
only by cavalry pickets, who would retire
on any demonstration of the enemy.
South was south of Rurnside ; Wright
south of Smith; Hancock south of Wright;
and Warren south of Hancock, holding
tbo outhern flank at Despatch Station.
Cavalry pickots extended south of Des
pstch Station, about a mile, to the Wil
liatiikburg road. The norihorn Federal
flunk whs nbout eleven miles from Rich
mond ; the southern about thirteen.
This line confronted the enomv on a
high ridiju running parallel with the river
iiuiu .....-. wbiuui uunu utinubt io ine
railroad. It was very strongly lortified
too strongly to be captured by assault.
Grant was digging his parallels and works
locnptureit by siege. Below Bottom's
Bridge the Chickahominy is not defended,
and the Federal array could, by a move
ment in that direct inn. rrou ilia river anil
f turn this position of the enemy. The ton
of the ridge fortified ly the Confederate.
iiafl.it table land, about n mile broad,
covered with but few forests. On it are
Gaines' Mill and Gaines Houe. At the
buck it slopes down to the Chickahominy
8wamp. Whoie the railroad crosses, the
snainp is wider than it is above. The
trees growing up from the river are larger
and the foliage more luxuriant. A high,
long trestle bridge is necessary for the
rtossing. Between this bridge and New
Bridge are various roads and crossing pla
ces built by Gen. McClellnn. Ail of them
re now used by the Confederates. From
the swamp, which is here nearly two miles
wide, and without a tree excepting those
irhich grow up out of tho river, the hills
ibpeunvery steeply on the Richmond
ti le. Heavy forests cover the tops and
lides of all of them, and along tho entire
lange there is everv opportunity for Con
federate defense. An army crossing the
vide expanse of bare twamp from the riv
er's edge to the l ases of the hill would
run great risks. At New Bridge, Old
Tavern Hill is tho name of the ridge. Be
low it.the next peak is Lewis' Hill.and then
Trent Hill. Below Trent Hill is the rail
road crossing, and tho Chickahominy
Swamp hero joins the While Ciik Swamp,
a vast wilderness, extending south of
Richmond aud almost to the James river.
The railroad crosses the upper corner of
this swamp, and thon passes through the
Fair Oaks Swamp. A more dismal place
than Fair Oaks Swamp can rcnreely be im
agined. The pine forests, nearly all of
them slashed to moke ubbattis ; tho soft
ground, with water oozing out at everv
footstep ; the thick undergrowth, and the!
usmp, disagreeable atmo--phcro, are well
remember?! by all who have tver been
there. Every road, over which even bo
dies of foot soldiers have to go, must be
. built of timber. In this swamp the battle
offair Oiks was fouaht. Grant must
t fojs it, and if it is successfully crossed
! iew obstacles will confront the ndvance.
1 ro'n Old Tavern Hill, southeast, runs
he outer ridge of the Richmond defenses.
It i from five to six miles from the town.
The inner ridge is parallel to it, and about
three miles from town. Various little
atroams, iomo emptying into the James
river, and some into tho swamps, form de
pressions and gullies of great assistance in
forming the defensive line. From Fair
Oaks Swamp tho outer ridge slopes gradu
ally up, and on the top are fortifications
dofending the approaches by the various
roads. If the Coal Harbor line is carried
or turned by the Federal army, the Chick
ahominy must be crossed ; then the hills
beyond it carried ; then Fair Oaks Swamp
tnuat be captured j and after all, the ar
ray, still five miles from Richmond, will
"be confronted by other hills bearing the
defensive works of the town.
The works southeast of Richmond, are
almost as formidable as those northeast of
it. The strength of the dofenses on the

Increased Expenses of the Government.
0ving to the largely increased expenses
or the Government, officially announced
by Mr. Chase in his nronokld r. n..
loan, it is estimated tint $1,000,000 a day
will hardly he sutlicient to meet tho ac
cumulating requisitions upon the Treas
ury. The total nember of men called out
for the army under tho various proclama
tions up to this time is 2,130,000. Added
10 . nsilie nav'' "'eluding 58S vessels
ana 43,0(10 seamen. The loans aud liabil
ities authorised by acts of Congress, which
2r,e " nonrl' a" exhausted, amount to
J,(.4,012,!5l8. During 180U and 18G3
the expenses did not exceed ?2,000,000
per day. but they have now been run up
to $1,000,000 daily by the increase of pi i
ces, as well as of the army and navy and
interest of the publio debt. It is thus
found that the receipts from revenue, in
ternal tax and subscription to the ten-forty
bonds are inadequate to Iho daily re
quirements of the Treasury."
The above cheerful paragraph we cot
from that excessively "loyal" journal, the
Herald, and as it is now one of the most
devoted worshippers of the war, we pre
sume it speaks by "royal authority," The
daily expenditures of the government are
now, we doubt not, $5,000,000 fully, for
not only must the soldiers bo fed and
clothed, but a myriad of big and little nig
gers. "Tu white trash" must foot the
bill; and if loans give out if even the stu
pendous liberality of Congress fails to
grasp the length and breadtu or the phil
anthropic need of this era of "colored"
benevolence, Mr. Chase's steam presses,
and his white paper and green ink, must
cc nie to the rescue and save tho nation I
Douglas Jerrold tells of a man in one of
his stories who, every time he puts his
hand into his bosom, could take out a ten
or twenty pound note. It was a very con
venient and happy way of getting money,
but soon, alas 1 the man discovered that
he was growing thin aud emaciated, and
thatevtry additional note drawn forth
extracted just so much life blood from his
heart. Aud so it is with Mr' Chase's le
gal tenders. E:ich one of them draws iust
so much from the vital enorgies of the
American people, and will if continued.
reduce them to gaunt poverty and des
pair. Mr. Ui.'ise now proposes to issue intor-
o.st-bearing Treasury notes, just as if that
would not inllato the currency. He knows
very well that it will, though he tells his
paid organs to say it will not. Wall street,
however, knows that it is only "a new pa
per lie," and hence gold went up four ner
cent on the announcement being made.
it appears also, lrom the above state
ment, tliat '.hero have bcon over two roill
lonsjof men called out to suppress this lit
tle "sixty day rebellion," and the end is
not yet. The lackeys of the despot are
arounii ug.un enrolling the people lor an
other draft for the gunboat shambles and
the maibhes of the Chickahominy. How
long can human nature bear the torment
of Lincoln? The meanest brute will -e-sist
when driven into a corner. Aro the
men of this generation lower than the
brutes? Under any fair commission dc
lunatico inquirendo, tho madmen in Wash
ington could be convicted of insanity and
placed out of the possibility of doing in
jury to scociety, ll is solely by tho use
of paper money, an undoubted invention
of the Uovil, that they are enabled to pur
chase the bodies and souls of men to carry
out their work of devastation and slaugh
ter. The demoralization which has been
caused by the greenback currency, will
fasten itself upon this country for genera
lions yet to come. No person can esti
mate its direful effects. It 1ms corrupted
the innocent; it has purchased the venal ;
it has destroyed female virtue and manly
honesty ; it has sapped the fountain.of
patriotism in tho youth of our land, and
brought even old ago in disgrace to the
grave. And yet the Administration has
no other resource to enable it to carry on
its warfare upon American civilization
and Amorican Democracy. More legal
tender are to be issued. Moro men are
to be conscripted, contrary to law and jus
tice. But no matter. Governors Seymour
and Parker respond with an affirmative
answer, and the people must yield up
their bodies and their property to Lincoln
because no Democratic Governor d ire be
true to his onto of office, and vindicate
the sovereignty of his State within his own
j borders, as old Caleb Strong, of Masschus-
ens, uiu in i8i. Verily, the race or men
has died out. The era of pigmies is upon
us N- Y. Day Book.

CLEARFIELD, PA., WEDNESDAY; JUNK 2
ViMI. CATION OF CONSTITTTTrflY.
Arbitrary Arrests Condemned-Justice
to the Oppressed-Verdict of $9,000
against Marshal Murray and his
An action of great importance has been
had at the Greene Circuit, New York,
which resulted in a verdict of $'J,000 for
Lft'"L .II as brought by
., . la,riB, a rcspeetaljle fmmer of
-New York, and William Buckley, Lis dep
uty, for an 'orl.li . . " '
... 'viwaijr niicai.
It appeared on the trial that in Anifusl,
v i ,M"lr."y sent Uuckley from New
i oik to Cuiro, Greene county, to arrest
the plaintiff. Buckley had no legal pro
cess to justify the a,ret, though he had
in his possession a paper supposed to bo a
representation made to Murmy against
I'atrie by tome political opponents.
Wheu Buckley atrived at tho house of
Patrie, he learned that Tame was in a
distant field on the furro, at work, and he
took the little son of Patrie to conduct
him to the field where the arrest was made.
After returr,ing with Patrie to his house,
in answer to an inquiry of Tattle's wife as
to tho probable fueof her husband, Buck
ley said he supposed that he would be
sent to Fort Lafayette. Palrie was taken
by Buckley to the city of i'ew York, and
delivered up to Murray, by whoso order!
no was imprisoned in an underground
jail tho Elm street priaon-for neaily a

his keepers read hif le tters ThoJ
keepers read his letters before thev
were sent. During Iho nights he was con
lined, with two other prisoners, in a cell
about four feet wide by six feet long; two
of the prisoners lay on the floor and
ono on a shelf, placed against the side of
the cell, over one of the prisoners on the
floor. Neither bedding, nor t.traw, nor
covering of any kind was furnished them.
Patrie used his coat for a pillow when he
lay down, but towards morning, when be
was cold, lie put on his coat nod
took oil' his boot nnd rested his head on
them for the remainder of tho night. A
privy, cleaned but once a week, was in
the end of the cell, which had no light or
ventilation except through the hittic-daor.
The cell was infested with vermin and the
stench was exceedingly oflVr.sive and sick
ening. During a part of one day, ulso,
Mr. Putrie was kept in the cell and com
pelled to eat his supper thero, The char
acter of the prison fare, the cruel treat
ment of one of the keepers and other cir
cumstances were also proved in aggrava
tion. Some of Mr. Putrio's fi 'ends from Greene
county and his father from Schoharie
county, wont to New York in Lis behalf
during his imprisonment, but were una
ble to procure his release on bail or other
wise, in answer to Mr. Patrie a applica
tion to be bailed, Mr. Murray told him
that all Giecne county could do him no
good. That no person could be of any
service to him except a certain lawyer,
whom he named and ottered to seed to
him one Bcebe, called Judge Becbo.
Patrie said he could not live long where
ho then was, nnd if no otiier persou could
aid him except the lawyer he had named,
he aked he would send that person to
him. That person Accordingly came to
see him and offered to obtain consent that
he be bailed and to prepare his bond for
$100. Putrio remonstrated against such a
charge for drawing a bail bond, and offer
ed all the money he had with him, viz.,
$2j, which was finally accepted. A bail
bond was then executed by two of Mr.
Palries friends residing in New York and
he was permitted to return home.
Mr. Patrie then commenced his action
for the falsa imprisonment, but the de
fendant? have succoeded in keeping ofl'
the tri.d till the present circuit. At the
November circuit. 13r3, a poslponment
was procured by the defendants on vari
ous pretence of the absence of witnesses
and otherwise. At the last February cir
cuit it was again avorn oft to enable the
defendants to procure the testimony of
the Secretary of War. But none of these
witnesses wero present at the trial, tior
did it appear that ony steps had been tak
en to procure their attendance or obtain
their testimony, or even that their attend
ance wm desired.
Tho cause was tried at Catskill, on Tues
day last, before Judg Ingalls and a Jury
of men of both political parties. The Ju
ry after about two hours deliberation,
found a verdict for 0,000, as ajovo stat
ed. We believe this is the first case of the
many outrnges of this character which hai
reached a jury for redress; and the result
sbo'vs that there exists among the people,
irrespective of party divisions, a respect
for constitutional rights und a determina
tion to maintain them. The courts are
open to redress such great wrongs, and ju
ries will not tail to lay a heavy buna up
on lhoo who abuse the rower entrusted
to them by trampling upon the rights of
the citizen. Justice may be delayed, nut
it cannot be defeated, Albany Atlas.

JprThe I)tmoratie Press, of Fon Du Lao,
Wisconsin, has a fearless ond evidently
well considered article or peace, wnioa
concludes with the following words:
" As we said, we are for peaco ' on any
terms' that recognizo tho great principle
of civil liberty, which is now in deadly
peril peace upon 'unv terms ' that shall
recognizo the right of eclf-govurnmeut, tho
sovereignty of the States, aud tho liberty
ol the citizon. Such a peace h at any
time within our reach and by accepting
it we ehill be obligod to yield no rudit of
our own, except the self-assumed right to
govern others who do not chooso to bo
governed by us. In short, we are for
peace under almost any circumstances, as
infinitely bettor than the present condi
tion of things, and as tho only possible
step remaining to bo taken to preserve our
liberties, and save ourselves from a tyran
ny more unendjrable than even that of a
Nero or a Caligula."
