importer. E. O. GOODRICH, EDITOR. Thursday Morning, March 19, 1863. GREAT UNION MEETING IN NEW-YORK. We publish on the first page of to-day's paper the speeches of JAMES T. BRATA and JOHN YANBUREN, delivered at a Great Union Meeting held at the Cooper Institute, in New York, on Friday evening, the 6th inst., which was participated in by men of all parties, ex cept the Copperheads. Meu who have heretofore been in full com munion with the Democratic party, headed by HORATIO SEYMOUR, came out boldly in favor of Mr. LINCOLN, and justified most fully and unqualifiedly all his measures for suppressing this rebellion. Most prominent among the speakers was J. T. BRADY, who has heretofore been one of the strongest supporters of the New Aork Democracy. Mr. BRADY took a proud posi tion before the American people and announc ed himself in favor of war to the knife, until peace is restored. Speaking of the Confede rates he said : " They have told us that if wo g&vo them a blauk paper and a pencil to write the terms of a new compact they would not agree to it.' Therefore it is a war declared for all ultimate results that can come: and I spit upon any Northern man who t >tcs any position except for the maintenance of the Government." In speaking of the separation of these States, which he declared to be impossible, he said : " And now, gentle-men, in conclusion, I pro pose to answer the question, 1 Y\ hat will come out cf this war V You say you will never consent to be united with ns. "We say that we will never agree to the existence cf two mili tary governments arising out of the same people on the same territory." * * * " Now, I tell mv Southern bretheren that their only chance is to let the Constitution be their guide ; for if the Yankees get down in to that Southern territory, who Imve a theory about this war, and put arms into (he hands of the negroes, and put their long feet on the ta bles of the estates of which they take posses sion, I don't want to be the lawyer iu uu ac tion of ejectment." Mr. BRA DY'S speech was an able one, and lie was c'ucetcd enthusiastically from the begin ning to the end of his oration. Mr. BRADY is an Irishman, and a Roman Catholic, and he is the mouthpiece of a large portion of his countrymen ia the city of New- York. JOHN VAN BCKEN spoke in the RAM? strain for mere than hour. Duricg Lis remarks Le said : " I nrn for a vigorous prosecution of the war. lam for a prosecution of the war until this rebellion is wholley overthrown. I atn for destroying this usurped government that has been set over several States of this Un ion, known as the Confederate government ; nnd until that is done, I hold all propositions for peace to be entirely preposterous and ab surd. [Applause and cries of good !] Now, being for the war, I a:n necessaiily with eve rybody that is for the war; and being oppos ed to peace, I am necessarily opposed to ev erybody that is for peace." DAVID DUDLEY FIELD, another prominent Democrat, made n most able and patriotic r-peech. Let the Copperheads, who are talking about tho Ruinous d'bt ! enormous Tar, and a bankrupt nation, ponder this statement well, for it is true, nnd the question of the expens es of this war is squarely met in a few words. Our taxes never need be higher than they are at present, and we have stood them one year—they have Dot hurt us yet —wc can Etand them another, and forever ; with fifty per cent, added, if need be ; and still remain the richest, the happiest, and most prosper ous people upon the face of the earth. The Uniou meeting at the Cooper Insti tute is but the begiuning of what is soon to follow. The people are getting tired of car rying on the war by slow approaches and easy marches, and they are about to give their unit ed support to the administration, and they are about tc tgivc heir united support to the ad ministration, and then the traitor sympathiz ers will have to stand from under. A curse like that of Cain will he pronounced upon them by an outraged people, and they will be cousiued to obscurity and detestation. USV-A brief dispatch from Yieksburg annonn ccs that the Yazoo Pass Expedition has cap tured twenty six steamers, and that tne gun boats which formed part of it have arrived at Haine's Bluff and were shortly to begin the attack. Asa consequence, probably, of the unexpected success of this expedition, the evac nation of Yieksburg is again reported, and this time with addition that the greater part of the Rebel force is to go to Chattanooga thence to operate against the Army of tho Cumberland under Gen. Ilosecrans On the other hand, \va have a report that both Union and Rebel armies are to adjourn the contest to Port Ilud son; but as the fortifications at that point are understood to be weakest on the north, it is not easy to see why the Rebels should aban don Yieksburg only to retire upon a less defen sible position. It is, however, reported from Washington that Port Hudson is also to be abandoned, and this seems the more probabie iu tho case of the evacuation of Yieksburg. The Like Providence operations are said to have inundated a hundred miles of Louis iana, destroying mil'ioos of property, and drownidg out tho guerrilla rats which infested it. The Yieksburg cut-off seems also to have been prematurely filbd by the impatient wa ters of the Mississippi ;and their remains, there fore, only the Yazoo Pass Expeditiot as the basis of immediate success. Fortunatly we have nothing but good news from that quar ter. though act yet so eomplete as might be iwired. THE PEOPLE IN MOTION. Our exchanges come to us filled with glow ing accounts of mass meetings of the people of the loyal States of the Uuiou. C-opper hondism has raised up a feeling of indignation that will not be put down until secessionists South, and sympathizers North, will all be crushed in one common ruin. On Wednes day evening of last week, an immense mass meeting, to inaugurate the National Union Club, took piace at the Musical Fund Hall, Philadelphia. Gov. CURTIN presided and made the opening speech. Speeches were de livered by Gov. JOHNSON, of rennessee, Sena tor DOOI.ITTLE, cf W isccnstn, BENJAMIN 11. BREWSTER and HENPUICK B. WRIGHT. AD these speakers were earnest in their remarks, and their condemnation of the miserable Copperheads, who, like Sanderson, Swarr and others, are attempting to break down the Government, was greeted with the wildest shouts of applause. On Thursday evening Gov. Wr.iGirf and Hon. H. B. WRIGHT were serenaded at the Continental Hotel, and in response to re peated calls addressed the thousands assem bled. In the course of bis remarks Gov. WEIGHT said : The assertion has been made that none but the Democratic party could save the country. He thought so too, but lie proposed to u.-k the question, what class of Democrats do you mean are to save toe country? \Y e have got. a past history. Let us yo back ami look at it. There has been a Democratic party in this country, but. the men composing thai party were found in harmony with the Constitution. But even then there were some of a false De mocraey. Thomas Jefferson was a genuine Democrat, [applause J llxi had a Vice President of the name of Aaron Burr. Mr. Burr was inside cf the Democratic organiza tion. [Laughter] Were they not both Democrats. Coining from Jefferson to Jack son we find tiiiit Andrew Jackson had ;i Vice President by the name of John C Cal houn. Was not Calhoun inside of the Demo cratic organization as much as General Jack son himeif. Coming from Jackson we find Stephen A. Doualas; and was not lie a r. pre sentativc of the old Jefferson Democracy? At that time the country had a Vice President in the person of John C. Breckinridge, who was tlieu a Democrat too Then we have .TtfiVr son and Burr. Jackson and Calhoun, and Douglas and Breckinridge ail inside of the Democratic ring. [Laughter ] Do you f.d low Jefferson, Jackson and Douglas, or Burr, Calhoun and Breckinridge ? Do you follow these lost ? (Cries of " no, no. ') The coun try stood by President Polk when he had his trouble, and now we want the whole people of this country to stand up for the war. If you are a genuine Democrat that is what you should do. When you hear a man saying that the only party that ran save the country is the Democratic party, be sure and ascertain what he means oy the Democracy, whether it is genuine or bogus. There can be no such thing as a true Democrat, who does rot otai.d up for the war (Long applause ) lieu. H. B. WRIGHT was equally pointed in his remarks. He affirmed : I am here a Democrat, but a Douglas Dem ocrat. [Applause.J 1 have been a Demo crat for i> quarter of a century. I shali con tinue one as long as I live. 1 love my conn try, its Constitution and its Laws, and if need be he will fight to preserve them ail. Not a sympathizer with, nor apologist for treason. I am the enemy of the traitor, and the dead ly foe of the man wiio takes up arms against the country. [Loud applause.] lam a peace man man. No one living is more anxious for peace. Dot it must be peace under one Union and Flig the flag of the Union! [Applause] Liberties like ours are not to re relinquished or surren dered. lam one of those who believe that patriotism ignores and is above aii party, and that it is the duly of every man to come ;for ward with l>is last do.lar and Ids personal ser vice to put down tiD, the most heinous nnd unnatural rebellion upon which the light has ever shone. [Cries nf " That's so." Our ancestors seuied in their life bloorl this American Union, yet men are among us who doubt the posihility of its preservation, and are welcoming the guillotine to their own neck. The rebel press tell us that if the whole Yan kee nation submitted to their yoke,they would spurn them. On no condition will they reunite with us. Who can ciy for peace in the face of declaration like these. The rebels never yet intimated a desire to reunite the govern ment. They are today precisely what they were when tbev fired into the national emblem upon Fort Sumpter. If peace cannot lie ob tained upon honorable terms, what is left t j us but 10 fUdit for peace ? Peace to the country would be a welcome boon,but, untii the pride and contumacy of the leaders are broken all hope oi it must prove delusive. The bit terest enemies of the Union are tliowho would accept peace upon the broken fragments ol this great republic. [Applause] They arc direr enemies to the government than those who take up opon arms against it. [Cried of " so they are."] The war is no work of oars. We c1il not. make it. Its calamities are not oar doing.— The blood of our sons and brothers is not up on our heads. Their bones that bestrew eve ry battle held from the Potomac to the Rocky mountains are not scattered by our hands.— The spirit of secession is not appeased by them. Upon every battle field the graves of Democrat and Republican he side by fide their bones mingle in the burial trenches. [Applause ] If ever there was an hour when loyal men should stand together irrespective of party politics it is now. The memory or the man who tt b his icu-.tiy in her i'our ol trial and dangers is ac.ursecl. The fate of Arnold shall be his fate, out! his heritage the execration of unborn millions. [Deafeuiag applause ] This is the time when loyal men shoul i mould public opinion. You are the people do it. Spurn the traitor from your home. Let him see the contempt you feel for him patent up oiif/ourbrow. [Cheers.] 1 have differed wide ly from the Administration on several points, butai te everything necessary to put dow treason I give it my unqualified support. — [Applause.] The man who is a traitor or tiie sympathiser with rebellion cannot be my friend. Let every loyal man thus scout them and will hide their diminished heads. CSV" Which travels at the grcate-t speed, heat or cold ?—Heat; because you can easily catch ccld DOPPEKHEADISM. The hatred for loyal Democrats was exhib ited : n its fullness, by the venomous copper heads in the House of Representatives, on Friday of last week. That noble son of Tennessee, ANDREW JOHNSON, a life ions Dem ocrat, who has suffered severely for his loy alty, whose property has been confiscate 1 and stolen by the rebels, and whose wife has been scorgcd because of her husband's loyalty, by the womcn-wUppers of the"chivulrons" South, and who still stand firm for the Union, was on a vi.-it to Hurt isbnrg. He was accom panied by that sterling old Democrat, ex-Gov ernor WRIGHT of Indiana, whose democracy was never questioned and whose loyalty Was of the Jacksoriian stamp. Mr. A ineent o! Erie, offered a resolution to tender them the Hull for the purpose of addressing their Dl low-citizens, and moved a suspension of the rules that the,resolution might be put upon isl passage. Mr. Beck objected to the suspension of the roles, and, on a call for the yeas and nays, Messrs. Alexander, Burger, Barron, I5k, Boileau, Brown, (Northumberland,) Dellone. Eilis, Glean, Grebel*, llcss, Hoover, llorton, Jackson, Josephs, Kuin, Kerns, (Sclmylkiii,) Kline, Labar, Myers, Neitnan, Noyes, Putton, Quigley, Rex, Ritoles, Robinson, Rowland, Trimmer, AValsh, Weiduer and Wolf—32 ; all Democrats of the copperhead stump, voted not to hear loyil Democrats spedlc ! SUMMARY OF NEWS. The intelligenc from our forces operating on tno Mississippi is important, though not so definite as wo could desire. A dispatch from Cairo brings us advices f.om Memphis to Thursday evrnirp A movement of troops was taking place below, from which important results were expected immediately. It was believed that A'icksbnrg mast soon capitu late or suffer a worse fate. The Yazio Pass operations appear to have given n? son e great advantage, of which we huve as yet hardly more than a hint. One dispatch states that Admiral Po: tor has reeeivul information that the Expedition had captured Yazoo City, and destroyed the rebel fi-ct known to tie there Another dispatch states that the AiTbiiml was momentarily expecting intelligence from Haines' Bind' that onr forces had arrived, then from above—which would be the signal fot a combined attack upon then be! fortifications there. Meantime an oOiciui dispatch from an other source lend - a new aspect to a flairs on the Mississippi. Gen. 1\ isencrans has tele graphed to the War D.p-irtment a report which lias reached h in, to the i fifed tliat the rebels have evacuated Viek-bu'g lu r urm i ti- n had previously reached Washington that they were removing their stores and war m.v tcrial into the interior, and the report of the evacuation is quite likely to be t:ue. A positive confirmation of the destruction of the Indiatiola liy the rebels has been sent t > the Navy Department by Admiral Porter. The destruction was in consequence of the fright occasioned by the " turn-ted monster" sent down by the Vicksburg batteries, and a full account of tho aPTiir is contained in the Vicksburg IVkig of the 5• !i inst. A dispatch from Cairo brings a report that a force of 12.0D0 rebels is approaching Fort Donelson—being already within twenty-eight miles of that tort. Our forces there ate ready for ihem. Our advices from the army under General Itoseucnius are of the most gratifying charac ter. The men and < Hirers ore in high s| iriis, cor.fi lent ar.d cheerful well clothed, wcll-ftd and well armed. Washington vras perturbed on Sunday by a rumor that a considerable force of rebels had crossed the Rappahannock at United Stares Ford, and were making a raid against the right wing of Gen. Hooker's Army, with a view to forcing an engagement. The rumor was without any fodndation in fact. The Washington Ripublic-rn reiterates the statement made by it a few days ago, that the rebtds arc in cousderable force in the Shanati doali Valley, between New-Maiket and Staun ton, and contemplating another raid on the Baltimore ant! Ohio Railroad. We received, on Saturday, advices from Port lloyal to the tenth inst., by an arrival at this port. Gen. Hunter's great movement bad not yet commenced, but a General Order had been issued by him on the s'b, in which he says that after long and wearying delays, due to canoes over which no one in the De partment had control, his command has at length the cheering prospect of active and very important service. On the same dav Gen. Hunter issued an order relieving Tsriir Gen. Nnglee from duty, and ordering him to New Yoik, to report to the Adjutant Gcner a!. Another order, issu d on the Gtli, directs the drafting of all the able bodied negroes in the Department, between the ages of US and 50, not otherwise employed by the Govern meet, to ganUon the virions forts and posts, and thus relieve the white soldiers for active duty. WM C. WEEB, formerly of (his PI nee, has been elected Speaker of the Wisconsin House of Representatives. The Milwaukie Sentinel says i'lio Assembly did itself cre dit by the election Mi Webb is the best par lementarian in the House, and will discharge the duties well and impartially." SEAVERY IN* NF.W YORK.—A I\lr. Daniel Bowley, of New York, avows himself the au thor of a petition for tlie restoration of Slav ery in that State. He says that although the signers of his petition are few.t ere are tlions an'.ls who are " willing to sign it os an evi rlmce of their good faith towards the slnveknld ivg Slates " Mr. Bowley was a Whig, but is now a professed Democrat. He and Wut. li. Reed, of Philadelphia, occupy the some platform a class of politicians who can "dive deeper and come np dirtier" than any original Democrat is able to do. Tlie Ladies' Soldiers' Aid Society. The Ladies' Soldiers' Aid Society, of To wanda, which has been in existence since the beginning of the war, meets at Firemaos* Hall every Wednesday afternoon. Assistnt.ee and contributions from the ladies of every part of the county will be thankfully received. As an evidence of the good accomplished by the benevolent efforts of the ladies we publish the following letter from G P. DAVIS of the 52J Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers; HKADQCAKTEUS CO. E. 521 I' V., ) ST. iiEi.LENA Ist. ASM. South Carolina, > February 15, 16(;:1. ') DEAR SIR :—I consider the mission which you are so deeply interested in, the highest end holy mission which our citizens could en- gage in. Tiicfe is nothing which somucb pleas es the soldier or more encouraging to him than to know that he is not forgotten at home, and that everything is being done to render him comfortable when sick or wounded. The necesity for thus liberally and patriotically do nating for the relief cf our soldiers is as great to day as at any previous time By your lib eral and patriotic donations you have saved hundreds of precious lives, and you have great ly relieved the pains and sufferings of thous ands of sick and dying soldiers by your be nevolent aid and nevtrtiring efforts. The field of operation is still large and the suffer ings of cur soldiers are great, but I huve so much confidence in tie patrioti-m of our peo pie that I lie icve they will leave nothing tin done which they can do to relieve the suffer ings in our army. I k<ve. seen the time while on the. peninsula. that the rainless rag lag r f any family would have saved precious lives il/'H act iiilly dying <f h,ss of It nod for the want of a rag or bandage with which to clccss their wounds. Bandages are tin article which have always tu-en very scarce with ti.e army in the field probably owing to its great use, wherever your supplies have r. ached the ar my the hospitals and de pots for ihe sn k have been made comfortable and really cheerful homes for the sick and wounded. The untir ing ath nthiii of the i tirses furnished by the S initary Commission, have done more good town;d 1 1 lievu'g the siik a: <1 testorit g tiifin to health with their kind attention and cart ful uur.-ii g ti t.n a score of army surgeons could do wish their medicir ncs. Thousands huve been restored to health and to duty by your hetievoU et and paliiotic aid, whifh il left alone to the finish 111 at meets of tin-. ann\ must have perished, and when you turn to 'hat part ot the field which has not been ri-ached by your commission, there you sec and realize the real MJA'.' rings of our army. There you see and know the vu t auiuunt of good which you have done. There you find the dead and feur of every soldier in the army, (the hospital or house of death) you li tl no clean or wholsome cuts, to change - f gar merits. You will find no delicacies which are >o welcome and necessary in a hospital. You find patients infilling from ail kinds of il is fuses, ar.t'i wounds, and in all stages of the tlis.t use some who have lain in the hospital for mouths without having even a change of garment, and many wounded men who for weeks have lain with their bloodstained clothes and could not be provided with a change.— il.eir diet is I lie coarse snbsis'ance furnished by the 0 S. Here I hey have no kind hand? to smooth their dying pillow arid no kind friends to speck a _word of consolation or to carry their dying tnc.-sage to fiiends at home. In many eases they aro left comparatively alone to 6'. ffer and (be unless tin ir constitution may b > strong enough to overcome the disease.— it our citiz-iis could !nt see the contrast, be tween the hospitals which has been supplied by tHtir bent vole: ce ai d the ones which thev have not reach d and could hut h.-ar the heartfelt thanks nttercd by the soldiers whose suffering conditions have been made comforta ble by their great exertions end henevoler.ee.
