Thursday Morning. March 12 3 18C3.
piy-Tim many friends of Judge WILJIOT
will be pleased to learn that he has been ap
pointed by the President, and confirmed by the
Swate, as Judge of the Court of Ciaims. If
we understand the duties of the position aright
it has coguizance of the claims arising from
the war, &e.
The selection of Judge WILMOT is a most
advisable one, and will be a guarantee to the
public that the Court of Claims, at least, will
be kept free from ill the corrupt and demor
alizing practices which have crept into almos
every branch of the government. Judge \V:I
MOT'S career upon the bench has giveu him a
wide reputation for honesty and uprightness
as a Judge.
His integrity even his bitterest enemies have
conceded. The interests of the Government
will be zealously guarded, while he is upon
the Bench, and speculators and rogues be buf
tied by his sagacity, judgment and courage.
Richmond papers of the slh inst. contain
telegrams from Savannah, announcing another
attack on Fort McAllister on the Sd. Three
iron clads and two bortars opened on the
fort, and succeeded in dismounting an 8-inch
columbiad and wounding two men—according
to the rebel report. The attack was contir.u
ed nearly all night, bat was not renewed nest
day. The fort is said to be uninjured.
Gen. Wool has issued an or Jer to Surgeon
Cbas. McDougal, Medical Director of the De
partment of the East, to cause a thorough ex
amination of all prisoners charged with de
sertion, and report the same at headquar
ters as : Those who are permanently unfit for
military duty ; those who are temporarily un
fit for military duty, and those who arc fit
for military duty.
The expedition,under Colonel Phelps,which
left Beile Plain in steamers on Tuesday far
Northumberland County, Ta , was successful,
returned to headquarters on Saturday. The
troops visited Heathsville, which they found
deserted by the Rebels. Then, throwing out
large foraging f parties, they succeeded in cap
taring 1,000 bushels of corn, 50 horses and
mules, and a large number of fine beef cattle.
Two post-offices and several stores were visited,
and two important Rebel mails captured.—
The cavalry also seized a number of horses
and mule?. Some prisoners were taken,
among them Coi. Cmybrook, a prominent
rabel officer,-and two clerks in the department
at Richmond,with n quantify of correspondence
for citizens of Baltimore, und official papers
addressed to parties in London, to the care of
Bearing Bi others. The country was deserted
and almost barren.
We h ave reports that too pirate steamer
Retribution attacked and sank a whaler in
the Caribhean Sea, which showed flpht and
killed one man on board the pirate. The en
tire crew of the whaler were sank with her.
The Retribution had previously captured a
bark, three brigs and a schooner. The cap
iaia of the brig Condor,from Porto ITico 20th
alt., reports that when about forty miles from
that plaewko saw a three-masted, bark rigged
steamer making all sail in the direction of that
port. She was closely followed by another
6teamer of about tiie same size, which appear
ad to bo chasing her. They both hid a full
head of steam on, but from t'na distance —sev-
en or eight miles— the brig was from the two
steamers, the captain could not state which
gained the better of the race.
8&" By the arrival of the Arabia at Hali
fax Mondayl we have European dates to Feb.
22—two days later than those previously re
ceived. The captain of an English vessel,arri
ved at Gibraltar, reports baring, on Feb. 10,
beard reports and seen the flashing of guns,
and, baring passed two days before a suspici
ous vessel, which lie thought to be the '290
or Alabama, he felt ccrtaiu jt was a contest
between two ships. Great mass meetings i:i
favor of the American Government and the
Emancipation were held in Liverpool and
Carlisle. Both meetings were very enthusiastic,
and entirely unanimous in l itter denunciations
of the Slave Power and its English friends. Th t
London Times maintains that the contract for
tho Confederate loan has been ratified by the
Confederate House of Representatives. The
Poles are said to have obtained several more
successes. France las protested against the ecu
vention between Prussia and Russia, and the
C onstituliorinel of Paris a semi-official journal,
declares that the intervention of Prussia has
made tbe Polish insurrection a European ques
tioD. Earl Russell denounced the conduct of
Russia ir the English House of Lords. The
Prussian Cham her of Representatives almost
unanimously declared in favor of strict neutra
lity. The Engiisb House of Commons unani
tnoasly passed a resolution raising the income
of the Prince of Wales to £ 100,000. An out

A special dispatch to the Gazette, from

A special dispatch to the Commercial from
Murfreesboro, says a report reached there
yesterday that Tan Dora's Rebel forces had

Senate requiring each member to take the

Desperate Resistance by Our Troops.
KASnriLLB, Friday, March G/1563.
I There was fighting all day .yesterday between
Van Dorn's command and a Lnion force of
three regiments ot infantry, about 500 caval
ry, and one battery, at Spritigvi'le, IS miles
j south of Franklin. Col. Cbburns three regi
| merits of infantry were cut to pieces or cap
tured by the rebel forces. They fought des
perately, bat the ammunition became exhaust
ed ; and the Union troops overpowered by
superior numbers, were either killed or cap
| tu'red. The cavalry and artillery got off safe
i ]y. Jso reinforcement from Gen. Gilbert at
| Franklin reached the scene of action. There
' were sevpn regiments of Union troops at tuth
: place. Van Dorn is reported to have 18,000
; men under his command.
Further details of the fight at Franklin
yesterday have been received. Five regiments
of infantry, and one battery of the Bth Ohio,
with the bill Pennsylvania and 21 Michigan
Cavalry, all under command of Col. Cobtirn
of the 23d Indiana, advanced on Spring Hill
on the 4th inst. Several spirited skirmishes
took place during the day, our troops camp
ing four miles distant
On the sth, a movement was apparent, and
during some disorder on oar left, they sud
denly opened on our men with three batteries,
on different points, at tlio same time, lhe
enemy also appeared on each Hank, in greatly
I superior force. The unequal contest was
maintained with great determination, with
heavy loss on boih sidas, anil resulted unfor
tunately to our troops —a large part of the
33d Indiana, 10th Michigan, 22 I Wisconsin,
and Ssth Indiana, with the most of their com
missioned officers, being captured.
Our artillery and ravahy were successfully
"withdrawn. The 124 th Ohio was out, but
retime d without loss. All is quiet to day—-
The Rebels have fallen back. Their force
was infantry, with heavier artillery than ours.
Gen. Gilbert's nonaction in failing to rein
force Col Coburn is severely censured by offi
cers and men.
ilnotlier Scatkiug Letter Irani General
The following extract, is taken from a re
cent letter from Major Guieral Rosencrans
to his brother, Bishop Rosencrans, of Cin
cinnati. It appeared in the Cathuic Tele
graph of February 16th :
" You see Thr Enquirer abuses me for
speaking the truth. Woe even to them if they
do not credit my testimony about the cruelty,
j injustice and treachery of the Confederate
levders ! If over those leaders, through th
Providence of GOD and the baseness and ful
ly of the people of the loval States, gain the
power, I am persuaded that the persons who
have succeeded by the hugest and most per
severing lies in getting men to engage in wai
who have called cut ' fi'lends* to decoy and
murder our pickets —have borne our flag and
wutu our uniform to deceive as in battle—vio
Sated the rights of flags of truce—fired on a
hospital boat, and kilied wounded men by that
and tiv exposing them to rain and mud who
teach "and encourage women to perjure them
selves — who inculcate guerrilla warfare—who
murder yniou mo and strip their families ol
their property and boast of chivalry—that
these men who violate all rights that stand in
the wav cf their unjust desires, can never lie

tfilrt beasts —when you have them secure—
caged and chained ! And do you think the

THE TALK OF A PATRlOT. —Governor Ted,
■ of Ohio, suggests a treatment for rebel trait
j ors who put on the fi rn.-y ili>gniso of loyalty
to party and claim for it a loyally to the gov
j ernment, which meets our own views exactly.
He made a rousing speech at a recent meet
j ing in Cinrindati, in the course of which he
i expressed the following views in regard to
j traitors :
" The speaker was not a revengeful or vin
' dictivo man. The hanging of one or two
■ hundred of the leaders of this rebellion, WAIS
j about all he would ask. f Laughter ] That
1 done thy difficulty would he Get. rid of
i the leaders, break the armed power of the
rebellion, and there would be found as much
: loyalty in the South as in the North. That
accomplished we will then attend to these
: fellows who want office, the Vallandighnms
1 and Olds, and their like. Teach your chil
dren their names, register them in the book
j you read on Sundays, and send them down t.o
i be execrated as the men who, in the hour of
I their country's peril, through nil possible ob
| stacles in the way of its preservation, aid ad
j vocate dishonorable peace ut the cost of na
I tional existence."
J T MEANS —A correspondent of the Cinein
; uali (j.tZJlle, in anticipation of the curiosity
i of future tontributors io " Notes and Quer
i ies " thus writes from the very place claimed
' as claimed as the ' fons d origo ' of this speci-
I men of political neology :
j Soon after the outbreak of the rebellion,
1 the SpringGed (O ) Re^uhlir, published a com
j munieation in which tlie writer noticed the
j rattlesnake as the emblem of the South Car
; olina rebels, and stated that tho rattlesnake
I was a more magnanimous reptile than the
: copperhead snake, as the former givec notice
I before he srikes, while the latter, besides iteing
1 more insidious, strikes you without giving you
any warning ; and applied the term copper
head to all the traitors and sympathizers with
i the rebels in tlie free States. Other papers
! soon adopted the term, and it has become
very general, but some people do not see the
point ; utul in Indiana I see some use the
term copperbottoms,but I cannotsee the point
of copperbottoms Copperheads is a very ap
propriate name for our free State rebels at
The Speaker's Farewell Address.
J [At the conclusion of the session of lbs late
i Congress, the SPEAKER, (Mr GROW*,) amid
the utmost quiet and marked respectful at-
I tcntion, spoke us follows : ]
Before performing the duty enjoined by
the Constitution, permit me to tender my
grateful acknowledgement? for the uniform
kindness and co-operation received at your
hands. In di-charging the duties to which
you assigned rae.if aught has occurred in word
or deed to wound the feelings of any, attribute
it to errors of tire head rather than intentions
of the heart, and let it bo forgotten in the
assurance that I shall recall our past inter
course only with pride and pleasure. We met
as Legislators of the R-public on the thresh
old of its most important era. Its sunshine of
of almost half a century was for the first time
darkened through the land, which it has since
drenched in blood. While grappling in a
death struggle with this hydra-headed mons
ter of civil discord, you have, by your labors,
contributed not a little to the advancement of
the industrial interests, and promotion of the
greatness and glory of the country. Few
Congress's, if any, will hold a prouder posi
tion in its future. Though we separate with
darkness lowering over the horizon, behind
the clouds is the sun strll shining. It seems
to he a part of toe plans of Divine Providence
that every marked advance in civilization
must begin amid the carnage of the batilc
field. Over the Maranthon and through the
Tcerraopylaet of the world's history, liberty
has carved out her victories, and the race lias
marched on to higher and nobler destinies.—
As the lightning's of heaven descend and de-
stroy on y to purify and reinvigorate, so free
dom's cannon furrows the fields of decaying
empires, and seeds them anew with human
gore from which springs a more vigorous race
to guard the hopes arid cherish the right of
mankind. The boom of cannon on the plains
of Lexington shook a continent, and bore an
obscure militia colonel from the shades of
Mount Vernon to the highest pinnacle of
earthly glory to stand forever on that proud
pedestal, peerless among men, while it called
Starke from his granite hills, Putnam from
his plough, and Greene from hi blacksmith's
foiaie to immortal fame.
The iron bail, beating on the water of
Suuipter, again shakes a continent, and the
Genius of His oiy is recording the names of
those born not to die. The country's mar
tvrs in this hour of its trial will live forever.
I'leii* tombs will be liie hearts of the gieat
and good of nil time their monuments tiie
granite hills of a nation rejoicing in freedom
Whether the night- of our adversity is to be
long or short, there can be no doubt o( the
Haul dawn of gloiiotis day ; for such is the
physical geography of the continent, that be
tween the gulf and the lakes there can be but
one nationality. Xo matter what changes
may be wrought in its social organization, its
territorial limits wiiljooutinue tiie same. The
traditions of the past and the hope* of the
future have ervstaiiz-d in the American heait
the fixed resolve oi " one Union, one countryjf
and one destiny," from ocean to ocean. No
human power can change that destiny any
more than it can stay the tide ol the luthci
of Waters, as it red.3 fruui tiie mountains to
the sea
—" Freedom's battle once began—
Rcque itheil ti mi bleeding she to son,
Though bullied ult is ever won."
Better cne war, though it costs countless
lives and an told treasure, than a dismember
ed Union with its endless border conflicts and
final anarchy and rain. It the people between
the Gulf and Lukes cannot live together in
peace as one nation, tiny certainly cannot as
two. This war then must, in the nature of
things, tic prosecuted tiii the last armed rebel
is subdued and the fl ig of our fathers is re
spected on every foot of American soil.
Gentlemen, invoking on you and onr com
rnon country the blessings of Divine Provi
donee, and wishing you each and til! a long
and happy life, not in the unmeaning compli
ment of the day, I at in eineeiity and truth, ]
declare the House of Representatives of the
Thirty seventh Congress adjourned sine die.

Letter from Fresident Lincoln to the
Wcrkingmen of Manchester,
The following is President LINCOLN'S let
ter addressed to the workingiaen of Manches
ter, England, in acknowledgment of the Ad
dress recently forwarded to him :
WASHINGTON. January lit. 16G3. {
To the Workingnm of Jhnckesler :
" I have tlie hoiior to acknowledge the re
' ceipt of ttie address and resolutions which you
' sent me on the eve of the new year.
" When I came, on the 4th of March. ISGI,
' through a free and constitutional election, to
; preside over the Government of tlie United
tStates, the country was found at the verge
iof civil war. Whatever might have been
the cause, or whosoever the fault, one duty,
j paramount to all others, was belorc me,
' namely, to maintain and preserve at once the
| constitution and the integrity of the Federal
Republic. A conscientious purpose to per
form this duty is tlie key to all the measures
| of administration which have been, and to all
which will hereafter he pursued. Under our
frame of government and my official oath, I
could not depart from this purpose ii I would
I It is not always in the power of governments
to enlarge or restrict the scope of moral re
I suits which follow the policies that they may
| deem it necessary, for the public safety, from
S time to time to adopt.
" I have understood well that the duty of
self preservation rests solely with the Amen
! can people. 15ut I have at the same time
heen aware that favor or disfavor of foreign
nations might have a material influence in
etih rging and prolonging the struggle with
disloyal men in which the country is en
gaged. A fair examination of history has
■ seemed to authorize a belief that tlie past ac
tion and influences of the United States were
generally regarded as having been beneficial
toward mankind. 1 have, therefore, reckoned
upon the forbearance of nations. Circumstan
ces—to some of which you kindly allude—in
dueed me especially to expect that, if justice
and good faith shon.d be practiced hy the Un
ited States, they weald encounter no hostile
influence on tiie part of Great Britain. It is
now a pleasant duty to acknowledge the dem
! onstration you have given of your desire thai
a spirit of peace and amity toward this coun
! try may prevail in the councils of your Queen,
! who is respected and esteemed in your own
country only more than she is by the kindred
! nation which has its home ou this side of the
i Atlantic.
" I know, and deeply deplore, the suffer
ings wbicbtbe working men at Manchester, and
in all Europe, are called to- endure in this cri
sis. It has been often and studiously repre
sented that the attempt to overthrow this
Government, which was buiit upon the foun
dation of human rights, and to substitute for
it one which should rest exclusively on the ba
sis of human slavery, was likely to obtain the
favor of Europe. Thron-rli the actmri of our
disloyal citizens, the woikingtei> of Europe,
have been subjected to severe trial, for the
pnrpo e of forciug their sanction to that at
Under these circumstances I eannot bnt re
gard your decisive utterances upon the question
as an instance of sublime Christian heroism,
which has not been surpassed in any me or
in any country. It is indeed an energetic and
reinspiring assurance of the inherent poiver of
truth ; and the ultimate and universa l tri
umph of justice, humanity and freedom I do
not doubt that the sentiments you have ex
pressed will be sustained by your great nation,
and, on the other hand, I have 110 hesitation
in assuring you that tiiey will excite admira
tion, esteem and the most reciprocal feelings
of friendship among the American people. J
hail this interchange of sentiment, therefore,
as an augury that, whatever else may happen,
whatever misfortune may befall your country
or my own, the peace and friendship which
now exist between the two nations will be, as
it shall be my desire to make them, perpetual.
Army Ohnioms. —The following is an ex
tract from a private letter written by au offi
cer of the army of the Potomac :
" Until the Government suppresses the
treason which is staikirig abroad in our North
ern cities and towns, we cannot expect success.
All who by act or speech are seeking to clog
the wheels of Government ought, to have quar
ters in Fort Lafayette or some similar lodging
house. Stringent, severe, summary punish
inent ought to be applied at once. If the sol
diers of the Northern States will only rebuke
the cowardly and contemptible nets 1 f the
Northern copperheads, even as the soldiers of
Indiana and Illinois huve the acts of those
States, we might bring these Northern trai
tors to the souses."
