by section five, of the act of July,

ABOLITION "Joss 1"---One of the
: precious "loyal and patriotic," in
the shape of Senator Hale, of New
Hampshire, having been caught
taking bribes for using his official
influence, the abolitionists have
tiken to their usual custom of pass
ing laws to prevent the like rascal
ity hereafter. Ever since they are
in power they have just :done the
same. When ettie is unearth
ed the rest make a great ado,
,which every time amounts to "fuss
:and feathers" and nothing else.—
'There is more rascality, more steal
ing, more bribery, more corruption,
in one month of the present ad
ministration than -during-the whole ,
term of Mr. Buchanan.
Mr. The Reading Journal says
that many persons, (Copperheads
especially,) suppose that the Stamp
and Revenue Law is a new thing
in the history of the country ;'and
that the editor - recently saw a bond
ter two hundred pounds, bearing
, date the 11th day of August,lBol,
with fifty cent Internal Revenue
:Stamp. The Journal is mistaken
in its assertions. Copperheads,
especially, are awaire that Stamp
Acts have been in 'existence here
tofore in this ,country, that in
"the good old •times =of 'our fathers
and grasd-fathers" they were of
ehort.continuance. The present is
the third time that the same party
has imposed Stamp acts upon the
people, and we trust the end:‘of
the present will prove similar to
the other two. The first was im
posed by an arrogant and
grinding despotism. A brave and
patriotic people ! [will the Journal
deny the terms? ] refused submis
sion thereto, and after seven years
of suffering, blood and death,
:made good their cause and estab
lished themselves a free and sove
reign nation. Thus went the
Stamp Act of 1765 which lost to
Great Britain the brightest jewel
in her crown.
The second Stamp Act was en
acted under the administration of
John Adams in 1798-9, and was in
consequence of the war with
France,, and as the Journal in
correctly asserts, "to meet the, ex:.
Tenses Incurred in the Revolution
ary War." The Stamp Acts ; the
alien and sedition laws, the feder
alism, :and the despotism of the
elder Adams were as unpopular
with the people as were the simi
lar acts of the "mother country,"
and the result was, a second time,
resolution, this Jime,, however, po-
Etical only. President Adams and
his party were ousted from power,
in consequence of the passage of
the act which imposed the very
stamp seen by the editor of the
Journal. Since that time the
stamp party had but limited ten
ures of office until now, and hence
we of 1863, nearly an hundred
years after the passage of the first
stamp act, are oppressed by a
third. Copperheads opposed the
first, Copperheads opposed the
second, and they don't like the

Wednesday to the sth of January.—
Accept the passage of the $20,000,000
Bounty Bill, and a joint resolution of
thanks to General Grant and the sot..
diers under his command, nothing
worth mentioning has been done dun
log the brief period the Houses have
been in .session.
On the Draft Bill, made n •the
U. S. House of Representative, ion
the 21st inst
I aFn in favor Of the amendment sub-
:mined bylke, gentleman from New York,
i[Mr. Brooks.] We know that upwards
of $10,000,000 have been raised by what
is called commutation money under the
-conscription bill. There is nothing im
proper or wrong in appropriating this
money to aid in raising volunteers, be
cause it was raised for that purpose.
And I will say here,-that whatever our
individual opinions may be in regard to
the conduct of the war or the acts of. the
Administration, I solemnly protest, upon
the part of this side of the House, against
the aspersions made by certain gentlemen
upon the other side as regards a factious
spirit, throwing. impediments in the way
of the Administration, and to prevent the
wheels of the Government from rolling
smoothly. Something has been said by
-the gentlemen from Illinois [Mr. Lovejoy)
about the recent elections, charging us
on this side of the House with having no
constituencies. I- desire to say that I
represent here one of the largest districts
in the United States, and that lam not
opposed to favoring the Administration
in all just, legal, and constitutional de
mands. I have the honor to represent a
district which sent the first company of
volunteers to this capital for its defense in
the daVk days of April, 1861. And we
have sent , from that district since the
'commencement Of the war seven thousand
able-bodied men for the support of:th%
Gcrvernment, the Union, the Constitution,
and the enforcement of me laws.
I am in favor of appropriating as large
a sum of money as may be necessary for
the purpose of paying liberal bounties to
the men who volunteer, and thus avoid
all drafting or conscripting of our citizens.
I am opposed to the principles of con
scription. I most solemnly protest
against the attacks which are made here
on the exercise of the right to criticise the
acts and conduct of the Administration.
It is a privilege we have and will main
tain. We are the trustees of the people.
We are sent here as the representatives
of all classes, and not to represent fac
tions. I trust, therefore, that gentlemen
now in this hour and in this crisis of our
country, will rise above the mere politi
cian and make some effort, at least, at
statesmanship. I trust they will occupy
a .platform that lifts them above the mere
local purlieus, to a position that will ena
ble them to look North, South, East and
West, to do the best we can for our
whole coun try, and for all classes of the
I stand here in no spirit of faction. I
do not care whether I am designated as a
Democrat or as a Copperhead. It should
be beneath the dignity of a national legis
lator to indulge in partisan 'epithets. Let
us be men, and not slaves to faction. Let
us be patriots, in the true sense of the
term. Let us restore the country to its
former position among the nations of the
earth Let us act in the best possible
manner for (he interests of the people and
for all sections of the country. Let us
show to the potentates of Europe and to
all foreign Governments that the problem
of selfgovernment is not a failure, that
there is still some wisdom in the national
councils of America.
What is the amendment of the gentle
man from New York, [Mr. Brooksfl
Here we have a waif of $10,000,000 of
commutation money. It is so much
Here is 810;000,000 of money some
where, and why not apply .that -sum first
to raising volunteers before mu-king the .
appropriation of $20,000,000 lam will
ing to appropriate the $10.000,000 raised
under the conscription act, commonly
known as commutation money, because
the act provides that that money shall be
used "for the procuration of substitutes."
I want to pay those who volunteer liber
ally, so as to avoid all drafts. Let us 511
the Army, if it must be done, with volun
teers, for one volunteer is worth five
drafted men ; one volunteer is worth at
least five of these compelled soldiers of
the draft. It is said that we will have to
pay these men. Of course we will. But
we do not pay them bounty for the par.
pose of infusing patriotism into them.
You do not put patriotism into a man be
cause you pay him a few dollars. That
money is necessary to keep their families
whom they leave behind them when they
go to suffer the hardships and dangers of
the battlefield. We ought to be more
thanlust—we ought to be generous to
our volunteers. If necessary, we can
raise a large army of volunteers. Let us
give bounties forthat purpose, and avoid
odious conscriptions. Let us vote these
$10,000,000, raised by commutation, first
to that purpose. MI we ask is that the
money shall be placed under the control
of some competent mithority. Let us
know how much isceeded, and who is to
expend it, and how it is to be disbursed.
I trust that this money, now -in the hands
of the agents of the Administration, will
be appropriated Let us unite to restore
our country to its former greatness, and
the Government, under the Constitution,
to its former glory and penown.
It is said that Russia has ordered
a conscription of twenty 'men on ev
ery ten thousand inhabitants for the
whole empire.
DIN.. That's just what our "gov
ernment" does every sixty days
almost, with the exception that
ours is five times as heavy as the
draft in Russia. it's a glorious
thing to live in a free country.
Near New Castle, Indiana,

His name was Crist.

King Declared Victor—. Heenan's Shoul•

The steamship Jura, at Portland,
brings an account of the great fight
between _Heenan and King, which
took place on the morning of the 10th
at Tunbridge. King won in twenty
five rounds, the fight having lasted
thirty-one minutes. The Times says
there was but little science displayed
on either side. Heenan's game,
throughout, seemed to be to close and
put the hug on, so as to crush his an

lently to the ground. King's tactics

give elaborate accounts. King's-victo
ry is naturally received with Treat
exultation. There was •no interrup-;
Lion, and the :fight was fairly fought:
The London Times devotes a leader
to the affair, and publiShes a graphic
special account. It, editorially says
that Heenan's game throughout was
to close and 'to put the hug on so as
to crash his antagonist by dashing
him to the ground. King's tactics
were different and more creditable to
a professor -of ,pugilism. They con
sisted simply in -striking a-series of
sledge 'hammer blows on gibe ;most

collapsed from exhaustion. The af
fair was over in twenty-four rounds
and thirty-five minutes. There ap
pears to have been but little science
on either side, but it was a fair stand

in a decisive victory. The Times ton•
eludes by asserting that prize fight

I will give you a correct account of
our late move. We left Camp on
Thursday, November 26, and crossed
the Rapidan River the same day.—
We had. little Skirmish but it did
not amount to much', and then we
Encamped on the ground we gained.
The next morning,; the Rebels were
gone further back, when the 84th
Regiment, P. V. 1., was deployed as
skirmishers. It was supported by
the Ist Massachusetts Volunteers.—
We moved about two miles when
the 81th was attacked. The support
was called up, and- then we drove .
the Rebels back, when the skirmish
ing began to get pretty leavy..—
Then the let Brigade formed a line
and moved up to the Oirinish line.—
The 2nd Brigade Jeri - lied in an open
place, and moved to the left of the
let Brigade; and the Division to
the left of the 2nd Brigade, when the
84th charged end drove the Rebels
back for about two thousand yards
where we got one Battery in position.
The firing closed for abOut one hour,
when the skirmish line moved into
the woods. The rebelsjw4re ferming
General Ewell's COTE; 'which was
commanded by General Early at the
time. Then they charged and drove
the skirmish fine on want main line.
This was at about h al f i rtas two in
the afternoon. The alias eery firing
lasted till dark, when the 2nd Divis
ion under General Priqe, charged
and drove them about a gifarter of a
mile. We held the be tle field.—
They fell back through Ur night and
joined their main Army. On Satur
day morning at four o' lock Gen
eral Prince ordered the - t Brigade
to tail bark to an open .eld. The
Pioneers buried the dead nd picked
up the wounded. The 1 t Brigade
lost 16 killed, 72 wounde, and 77
missing,; the 2nd Brigade cst 8 kill
ed, 82 wounded, and 40 rniiing. On
Saturday we marched 41iMILIZE
mike forming a junction N th Gener
all Warren and encamp , for the
night. We could see the bel camp
fire on . Sunday. We mo od about
two miles and stopped til Monday
morning at three o'clock, when we
moved up to the front a dn. Our
Division was ordered t charge,
but we did not do it, and I am glad
of it. in front of the Ist Brigade
there were twenty-four cant i on.• We
laid about five hundred yards from
their breastworks. I saw two rebel
Generals—one of them 4d about

dusk that evening the fire, which was
in a close stove, had been replenished
with coal, and the members of the
family—Mrs. Miller, her child, and an
elderly lady—were drawn up close
to it, when the stove exploded and
flew into fragments. The child was
very badly cut, and the old lady was
seriously injured, but both will recov

wounded., her face being dreadfully
marked and her person so badly in

It supposed that the explosion was
caused by a powder horn belonging
to Mr. Miller, .Whil is a soldier and
is now absent in the army. This
horn hung hi a closet in which the
t oaf was kept, and must have fallen
into the scuttle and been unwittingly
-emptied into the stove along with the
coal. The only wonder is that some
of those around the fire were not kill
