Certain Democratic journals have lately labored hard to induce the belief that our National expenses are enormous, that the public debt is being increased instead of diminished, that taxation is more oner ous, and that the Republican party, hav ing a two-thirds majority in both houses, is responsible therefor. In answer to certain inquiries of the Hon. Wm. B. Allison, of lowa, Special Commissioner Wells has written a letter, containing the following specification : I. That the National receipts of rev enue from all sources, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1868, were substantially $406,300,000, and the aggregate expenses $371,550,225, of which $141,635,551 13 was on account of interest on the Public Debt (nearly $16,000,000 of this being due mainly to payments on Account of accumulated interest on the Compound Interest Notes, and which will not ap pear in future interest disbursements), thus leaving an estimated surplus of re ceipts over expenditures, for the year ending June 30, of $34,749,777. IL Since the war the amount of Taxes abated or repealed is $167,269,000, and coincident with this reduction the aggre gate of the National indebtedness has been reduced $250,000,000. On this abate ment the reduction of the interest, calcu lated at six per ceutum, would be fifteen millions per annum. 111. T he aggregate expenses of the War Department from . April 1, 1865, to June 30, 1868, were $917,117,043 43, $647,688,000 (or 70 per cent. of the whole) being used the last nine months of 1865, in paying off our troops_ and other neces sary war expenses. The balance, 8269,- 428,987 10, covers a period of thirty months, and represents disbursements Atisreilancous. " Let Us Haire Peace."

Rawlings, my friend, pronounces him the ablest executive officer in the service ; he used frequently to dictate dispatches to six clerks at once, thus beating Napoleon, whose limit, I believe, was five.

We had hoped better things of General Siwuni, Franklin, and Ewing, that they would not be found associating* with or recog nizing as fellow-soldiers, other than those who have an honorable record as such, and not with such old political prostitutes as Gen. (?) L. D. Campbell, whose private military record shows him to have been •` champai , gling" while connected with the army, rather than campaigning, and that his whole military career was a series of •• mild sprees," climaxing ill an occasional drunk. And such all array of Generals, Colonels, Majors, and so on down the roster ! Men whose names have never appeared upon the United States Muster Roll, or if they do, were either dismissed, dropped, or resigned early in the war. Soldiers of the Republic, you who have nobly fought to preserve our national in stitutions, you who hold an honorable dis charge from your government, you who marched, fought and bled with your noble leaders, Grant, Sherman, Thomas, Sher idan, Pope, McPherson, Rosecraus, L o - gan, and a host of others, are you pre pared to sacrifice your manhood and abandon your old leaders and your noble chieftain, Grant, and train under the leadership of men whose military prefixes are mere bought brevets, secured at the hands of a recreant Chief Magistrate, as the reward for doing his bidding, The recognition of the claim of the soldier was scouted and hooted by the radical copperheads in the New York Convention, and but for these, General Hancock could possibly have been nom inated, after a hard fought contest against such Democrats as the rebels Forrest, Buckner, Wade Hampton, Preston, If. Clay Dean, Vallandighain and Brick Pomeroy. How different was it at Chicago. The soldiers asked to have their chieftain placed first upon the list, and it wm done —and done unanimously. How was it at New York ? After five days struggle, a soldier was made the tail of the Dem ocratic kite, a man who is wholly desti tute of character or principle, in short a politicalrenegade, a soldier Ivlio has forfeited his claims as such by his pru,- tituting everything .. upon the politi c al altar, stultifying his past record as a rad ical, anti-slavery Congressman, and a bit ter foe of secession, all for the naked compliment of a nomination, without the shadow of a hope for an election. Alas how the mighty have fallen. THE DIFFERENCE.— Last week a white man in Missouri was arrested and taken before a magistrate, for marrying a colored woman ; soon a crowd gathered around him threatening him with all kinds of penalties. The Justice asked him what his politics was, and on receiv ing the reply that he was a Democrat, always had been and always would be, and that he had been a confederate sol dier, has fought for the negro and - has bound to have one anyhow, he was dis charged and permitted to return home unmolested.

But I thought the testi mony of a New England boy, who served four years in one of the most famous Western reiments, celebrating his twenty-first birthday in an hospital. with six rebel bullets for company, and who worked his way up front private to captain and assistant adjutant general, might possess some interest for your readers.

What member of the Confederate Con gress at Richmond when they ran away hofore the coming of our victorious le gions on the gray of that memorable morning of the 7th of April, 1.4;8, when they leaped the trenches of Richmond and carried the banner of truth and triumph amidst the burning, blazing walls of the doomed city, what one of the Con federate members of Congress had not taken, an oath to overturn the Constitu tion of the United States? What mem ber of the legislative assemblies of Vir ginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama. Mississippi. Louisiana and Texas had not also taken an oath in the name of the Cf Illf(!Aleracv to overturn the Constitution of the United State ? This being so, let the American people an swer, by what right the alders and abet ters of this rebellion—the Pendletuns, the Vallandighams the Seymours--can come before the imerican people and say that these rebellious States had a right to representation in Congress? THE citizens of Leavenworth, through their mayor, proposed to give Gen. Grant a public reception, but he declined in a note in which he says : I fully ap preciate the compliment conveyed in the resolution which you forward, and thank the City Council and citizens for it ; but while traveling for recreation, and to in spect a country with which I have so much to do and have never seen, I would much prefer avoiding public demonstra tions." Gen. Gpant Defining ills Position.. Gen. Grant was one day busy with his military plans, in the inner part of his tent. His maps, rules and compasses, were all in use. His mind ranged over the vast extent of country undtr his con trol. Mountains were scaled, rivers forded, swamps bridged, deserts travers ed, foreste threaded, storms and sun shine were overcome, and lie was master of the situation. Ile was just laying out his plans of a projected battle, intensely occupied with the marshalling of his troops, in their best position for victory, when his ear caught the inquiry, put to his orderly, in a strong~, foreign accent: '• Is de *enerawl in?" Then came the reply, in a firm, decided tone, which Gen. Grant understood in stantly— •• Yes, sir, the commanding general is in but he is very Lust', sir." Could I zee him a vew momentz?" He ordered use to sav, sir, that he would be very much occupied for some time " On de advance, eh?" interrupted the intruder. ~ 1)1'11 he is going down huller to de cotton regione ?"

The orderly was about to force the base interloper out. with an added tvord of military :ohm mition . when ti en. ( ;rant came qui c kly forward. Ile had heard the whole conversation aud comprehended the entire case in a moment. It was a covert assault on his nice sense of honor, and he was determined to punish it on the spot. Steppher to the open front of his tent, the general seized the rascally operator by the collar, mid, lifting hint several inches from the ground, applied the toe of Ins boot to line in such a man ner that he was pitched out headlong, falling on the muddy ground, at a dis tance of nearly ten feet. Before the or derly could recover front his surprise, the general had quietly retired to his inner apartment, and the next moment was as busily engaged with his maps, and plan of campaign, as if nothing had happened. Prowl History. The history of the Republican party is indeed a proud record. Inheriting a bankrupt treasury, a dishonored credit, and a gigantic rebellion from the traitor ous Administration which preceded their advent to power in IS6I, the Republicans heroically and successfully grappled with and conquered all these obstacles to the life and progress of the nation. Theyre plenished the Treasury; they redeemed our credit ; they subdued the mightiest re bellion that ever confronted civil power since _rovernments were instituted among men ; they struck the shackles fr0m4,000,- ino of human beings, and gave them every civil rights under the Constitution and laws And while accomplishing these herculean tasks, the Republican party administered the Government so wisely, that prosper ity has been all' the time abroad in the laud; great business enterprises have been undertaken and successfully prose cuted; factories have been built; the forest subdued ; farms brought under cul tivation ; navigable rivers improved; thousands of miles of railways construct ed ; the continent spanned by telegraph wires ; the two oceans well nigh connect ed by 0 road of iron ; the emigrant pro tected on the remotest frontier ; terri tories carved oat of the wilderness do main ; and new States of promise and pother added to the National Union. What other party in the history of this country ever confronted such difficulties? But, great as its achievements have been, its work is not yet finished. Out of the tierce conflicts of the recent past, con flicts indeed are still raging ; order and truinonv, and friendship, are yet to be evoked; not, indeed, by un wise concession and timid compromise, but by that fhui policy which is based on 111 , in, and under the leadership of one terri!dy in earnest in war, is yet to-dav the embodiment of peace, the con servator of public justice, and the hope of the loyal millions! Tits; only difference between Pendle ton and Seymour is. that Pendleton was plainer in his measuros. They both ag - ree—they compliment each other: Seymour supports Pendleton, and Pen dleton supports Seymour. They both ad here to the platform adopted under the dictation—first, of Preston, of Ken tucky; second by Wade Hampton, of South Carolina. and last, but not least, by Forrest, of Fort Pillow. ion. Reverdy Johnson has declared recently that the nomination of Seymour and Blair virtually settles the question iu favor of Grant and Colfax. NO. 10.
