JQU Maj. Geo. E. V. Sumner died at the
residence of his son-in-law, Col. W. W. Teall,
in Syracuse, on Saturday morning, of conges
tion of the lungs, after an illness of five days.
The General was under orders to report at
St. Louis for duty, and was on the point of
starting when he was assailed by the disease
which terminated his life, lie had been in
the service more than forty-three years, and
was justly distinguished for his patriotism,
courage, and magnamity. llis last words
were, 11 Gon save my couutry —the TTuited
States of America." The news of bis death
created a deep sensation in Washington, and
in military circles in all parts of the country.
In the Army of the Potomac he was consid
ered one of the most heroic and daring men of
the age. He has often expressed the wish to
die in the thickest of the fight. A great man
kas fallen, hut Ids life was starred with noble
deeds of devotion to bis country.
TRCTHFTL TALK.— It is not only the soldiers
from the good old Keystone State, who are
Bpeakitig out uumistakably, both iu reference
to the armed resistance to the rebeliiou aud
the systematic efforts of home traitors to par
alyze that resistance. The soldiers of every
State are placiug themselves on the record iu
reference to^this matter, and among these the
troops from Wisconsin have spoken with au
eloquence and spirit that deservo special men
tion. The Twelfth Wisconsin Regiment, at
Camp Butler, Tennessee, adopted some spirit
ed resolutions. From these we quote the fol
lowing pithy sentences :
"Clemency to the deluded and the penitent,
bullets for the rebels, and ropes for those who
" kindle fire in our rear;" and we do most sol
emnly warn all soch, that should duty ever call
us home to quench these fires, a terrible retri
bution will await those who kindle them."
" lie do vol fight to fret slaves, but tee free
the)slave to stop the fight."
" We do most heartily approve the con
scription law, under operation of which we
hope to 6ee loitctiug patriotism hastening to
render its due support to the Government
that affords it protection. We hope, also, to
see the " fire in the rear men" under it enjoy
ing a clearer sight of things in the sunny
South, than can be obtained iu the dim lodges
of the K. G. C.'s."
Byway of San Francisco we haTe ad
vices from Hong Kong up *to January 19.
Black aud Oolong teas had declined. The
shipment of American cottou goods to New
York continued. Kaw cottou was weaker.
The Ship Romance sailed for San Francisco
days ago, and has Dot since been heard
from. The rebels menaced Niogpo, but Brit
ish neutrality keeps them now 30 miles dis
cant from Shanghae. Foreign residents are
impressed with the idea that France intends
to make Ningpo the base of operations for ter
ritorial aggrandizement. The expectations
of aidjfrom Russia to pat down the Chinese re
bellion are not likely to be realized.
FANCT DRESS BALL. —A Grand Fancy Dres9
Ball, will come off at the WAKD House, on
Friday eveniug next. It promises to bo a fine
affair. About fifty different characters will
be fully represented. KJIZLER'S full baud will
be iu attendance.
The news from the SooUj ragQt came inta
It is stated that Hudson, aud af
action with his fleet £ with the batteries,
ter a brrek w j tb alibis fleelr
succeeded in pasr ?egge)g( , eaviDg tbe Mis .
'consisting of e; hich
ran aground, and was
sissippi bebi order of the Admira |. The ar
set on firr ted tQ be wjthjn five roileg of tbe
m * V 'V works. Despatcbs from Southwest
Cn J, La., appear to confirm this statement,
ney are dated on tbe Istb, and add that
heavy skirmishing was goiug on the advance:
that Colonel Clurk, aid to General Banks,was
slightly wouuded, and that the army was in
good spirits and would more in a few hours.
No news from any of our naval officers to
this effect has been received, aud this fact ex
cites much suspicion concerning its truth.
Admiral Forter, in a dispatch to Washing
ton yesterday, says he has received informa
tion from Lieutenant Commander Watson
Smith that on the 7th instant the whole expe
dition arrived in the Tallahatchie, which gives
us control of tbe heart of the State of Missis
sippi. The vessels all got through iu fightiDg
condition, excepting the Petrel,which lost her
wheel. This movement alarmed the rebels.—
They are energetically at work preparing them
selves for defence. There is much distress in
Vicksburg. The occupants have no meat,but
are living almost exclusively on corn meal.
Advices from the Yazoo Pass expedition
represent that the movemeuts are slow, but
that there is every prospect of getting through
successfully. Our forces had debarked near
Greenwood, aud were besieging Fort Pem
berton. A Dumber of our transports were
bud.y damaged iu getting through the Pass.
The ram Lioness overhauled the steamer Par
allel with 3,000 bales of cotton ou tbe 10th
inst., crowding her so closely that tbe rebels
were compelled to run her ashore and burn
her. The rebels burn the cottou on every
plantation as the army advances.
Reports from Galveston state that the
French Consul there, M. Theron,bad been ex
pelled by Jefferson Davis, it was supposed be
cause the French official had been intriegueiog
to take Texas out of the Southern Confedera
cy, aud make in an independent State uudcr
French protection.
Tbc Richmond papers are croaking fearful
ly over the want of tood uader which the reb
el armies are now suffering. All the country
around the localities where these armies are
situated is completely stripped of provisions,
and the only resource lies in the railroads,
which are said „to be giving out, for want
of laborers to keep them in order. The
wood work is rotting, and the machinery get
ting out of repair. The Richmond Examiner
says that "If they are allowed to fall through
from any causes, government and people may
prepare for a retreat of our armies, and the
surrender of much invaluable couutry uow in
our possession."
g®- By the arrival of the Europa, at Hali
fax, we have dates from Europe to March 8,
two days later than those previously received.
The Priucess Alexandria of Denmark was re
ceived in London with an eutbusiasm which,
the English people say, is without a parallel
in English history. Mr. Cobden, in the House
of Commons, made a severe attack upon the
policy of the English Adrairality. The King
of Belgium has accepted the arbitration in
ihe Anglo-Brazilian difficulty ; and the Brit
ish Government has ngaiu announced in Par
liament that the liiSk-nlty will be amicably
settled. There is no later ne.< sof importance
1 from Poland. England aud France, in a joint
I note to Russia, express regret about the par
! titions of Poland, and insist that the promise!
( made to the Poles be fulfilled.
City of Jacksonville was taken by
black soldiers on the 10th inst. The people
were in great fear of an indiscriminate massa
cre; but the negroes behaved witli propriety,
and no one was harmed. On the 11th Col
Montgomery, of the 2d Colord Regiment went
with about 200 men three miles out of town,
and met about 200 Rebels, with whom he had
a sharp skirmish. Baldwiusville, the yunctiou
of the railroad from Jacksonville to Tallahas
see, and with that from Feruundina to Ceder
Keys' is supposed to be the point aimed at by
the expedition. Desertions from the Rebels con
tinue quite frequent. Five sailors from the
Rebel guubcat Savannah reached Fort Pulas
ki on the night of the 14th, bringing with
them a Lieutenant as prisoner.
Bgk. A CiuciDDati special dispatch sajs :
On the 19th a squad of soldiers were sent to
County, Indiana, to arrest some deserters, and
succeeded in capturing six. While on their
way to the cars the deserters were rescued by
lt>o mounted" Butternuts" armedjjwith rifles.
Two compauies of infantry sent from Indian
apolis recaptured the deserters aad scatter
ed the traitors.
The 6now 6torm at Fortress Monroe
ended on Saturday in a heavy galo and severe
fall of rain. The snow was over a foot deep,
and there is bat little chance of the roads in
that vicinity being available for some days.—
The intelligence from General Hooker's army
represents the roads in an impaesablo condi
tion from the receDt enow-fall.
S&" It is stated that the first call of the
President under the new conscription law will
be for the deficiency of men under the last
two calls. The State of New York is repre
sented as requiring 29,136 men to complete it*
quota. Of this number New York has yet to
furnish 18,523, aad th county of Kings is
short 1,7-B©.
PARSON BROWWLOW writes from Nahtille
that he credits the statement that the rebels
have negro soldiers in their army. Hesajs
that the Union sentiments of Tennessee is
growing and developing itself more
in every direction. There is now a flourish
ing Union Club at Nashville, which numbers
three hundred and fifty members, all citizens,
and its members are increasing daily. They
hope to have the rebel force driven down iuto
the Cotton States by late in the spring or
early summer, so as to enable them to elect
members of the Legislature and a Governor,
all of loyal men. They will re-district the
State and elect loyal Congressmen and Sena
Of the aid giten to tbe rebels by the Nor
thern " peace" party, PARSON B. remarks S
" Deserters are coming into our lines every
day from the rebel army, twenty at a time,
aDd they, as well as Utiion refugees, agree in
what they say. Bragg aud Johnson have
both made speeches to the army at Tallaboma
aud Shelby ville, aud the grand point made by
them was, that they intended to break our
lines on the Cumberland, drive oor array back
to the Ohio, and then they would be sustained
by the 'peace party' of Indiana aud I'liuois,
Ohio and Kentacky. The staple in their
speeches was the 1 aid and comfort' they had
a right to expect, and were sure to receive
from the 'peace party' of the Northwest.—
They based their hopes of success upon the
aid they expected from these traitors in the
Northwest, and boasted that they would this
spring, carry the war iuto Carthage, aud soon
have the 'conservatives' of the Northwest for
These (acts may be set down as reliable.—
They should be given in all the loyal papers of
the country, and elaborated till the eyes of
honest dupes are opeoed, and false hearted
leaders and Northern deceivers are pilloried
under the scorn and condemnation of every
loyal Democrat, honest Whig, and true Repub
lican iu the land."
[For the Bradford Reporter.]
War Against Dogs,
MR. EDITOR :—I for one, and I presume
thousauds of others iu the State, will join me
iu trying to protect one of the greatest in
terests of the commonwealth in declaring war
against that worst enemy of sheep, dogs,
allowing me to be judge. If the poor man
must have a servant or pet Lt him try a pet
lamb, which will serve him to a comfortable
coat, which I think will be better than serving
death and destruction to the neighbors flock
with his pet dog. Let us raise our voices by
petitioning our Legislature on this subject.—
I would wish to have each dog taxed one dol
lar for each year ou the premises where such
dog is kept, to be subject for the tax and to
be collected iu the same way of other taxes of
the county, and the revenue derived therefrom
to be deposited with the County Treasurer, to
be kuown as the sheep fund and when any
sheep is killed by dogs, and the facts being
well established before a Justice of the peace
of the shall be the duty of the treas
urer to satisfy all such claims from the treas
ory if any funds therein. The borough or city
dog may couiplaiu of his rights being imposed
upon by 6tich proeediugs, aud the borough or
city dandy may be very sensitive to the inter
est of bis chum dog, and may not feel dispos
ed to hear our appeal. I think the 6tray dog
and gay dandy are much dreaded by the for
mer. Let us hope there is no dandies in the
way, but that the farmer's appeal may be
heard aud regarded.
Look at the hills of Pennsylvania, and en
qu re of yourself, farmer, if there is not a por
tion of your hill farm you would like to im
prove and stock with sheep if there was no
fear of the tormented dog to the flock.
Witb tbe proper protectiou of the sheep, I
believe it would be worth twenty thousand
dollars a year to Bradford County, and the
rest of the State in similar proportion. War
on the dogs will help to pay the expenses of
the war. lam much of a friend to tlie sheep,
not much to the dog, aud uot a bit to the
or.—Alfred Norton,, Esq , in u lecture re
cently delivered before the Lyceum at Win
chester, Mass., thus effectively alluded to one
of the results which would followed the es j
tablishment of a Southcru Confederacy :
" Look at another result which will follow
the establishment of a Southern Confederacy,
in the vast, magnificent territory alienated
from free labor, and the exclusion of ci izens
of the free State from the sunny and fertile
fields of the South. The surplus population
of Europe cannot enter these fields to rejoice
in their call are slavery excludes the poor
white man, immigration is hindered, and labor
becomes degraded. If labor knew how vital
ly its great interests are hazarded iu this eon
tlict, it would not permit a deprivation of its
rights, by the surrender of the great estate of
this continent or any part of it, the nuity and
freedom of which identified with large pop
ulations of man. Tbe world is fast learning
that the interests and elevation of labor is
the advantage of all meo. The appeal, then,
is to the laboring populations of Europe and
America. Will you suffer the course to full on
the land, upou toil, on bread, upon all that
makes life dear, honorable and sacred, or will
yon make the necessary sacrifice to prevent
this profauatiou ?"
THE TROCBI.ES TN XJTAH. —The agitation in
Utah, which threatens the peace of Mormon
dom, grows out of the Act ot Congress passed
iu 1862', for the punishment of polygamy, and
the boldnees of Governor Harding, the Ter
ritorial Governor, in calling the attention of
the Utah Legislature to their duties and re
sponsibilities iu the matter. His rebuke of
Mormon disloyalty to the Union also caused
much irritation. The Mormon press refused
to published his address to the Legislature,and
matters have been growing worse ever sine#.
According to the census of 1860 the
population of Utah ii only 40,293. This
insignificant community is iusufferable,. impu
dent and factions.
JQr The President has issued a proclama
tion calling all absent or straggling loldiers to
return to their regiment* immediately, or ex
pect to suffer the penalties of military law.—
All who report themselves at any rendezvous
specified by General order No. 58 of the War
Department will suffer no punishment except
forfeiture of pay during abseuee.
Letter from Virginia.
We bare been permitteed to make the fol
lowing extract from a private letter from W.
H. OvERfoN, jr., of the 23d N. Y., Regiment,
dated the 12th inst., to JOHN SLINEY, jr., of
this place.
* * This eternal prating about "Peace,''
" Peace Meeting," " Peace Conventions," and
" Peace Propositio ," is all gammou. Jeff
Davis would uot furrti>h us with blank paper
to write " Peace Proposition" on. On the
contrary, the leading rebels have over and
over again asserted that they would not com
promise, except their indedendence be ac
knowledged ; and " Jeff," declared in a re
cent speech while on his late tour through the
confederate domain, that r be had not or wo'd
uot entertain any propositions of peace except
those btiviug for their basis the Independence
of the confederate States " Now, if you Dem
ocrats of the North are prepared to acknowl
edge this, then drive on—l, like a distinguish
ed speaker at the late meeting in New York,
will " prepare to get out of the car and aud
walk," leaving to tbe future action of the
party the answer to the question as to wheth
er I will get in again. The great conserva
tive Democratic Party has a high and noble
work to do ; but that work will remain un
done if the party leaders eentiuue to waste
their time crying "peace" when there neither
is, uor will be Peace until tbe last armed rebel
is subdued, and the Stars and Stripes wave
over every foot of our Government domain.—
Why it is the party occupy so questionable a
po.-i IJU ? I say qutstonoble —I have a right
to say so wheu 1 see such meu as Valiandi
ghaui of Ohio, Powell of Kentucky, and Sey
mour of Connecticut, candidates for the office
of Governor of their respective States—men
who have done all in their power to clog the
wheels of Government, the first two in official
positions as members of Thirty-seventh Con
gress, and the last as a private citizen, but of
commanding influence, rod the tnau who re
ft,ses to attend a war meeting, but said he
would be happy to attend a similar gathering
in favor of Peace. With such m-n as its re
cognized leaders, the country will hold the
party to which they belong responsible for
their sentiments. Why, only look at it, the
position of our party in 1856 and 1860 —we
then claimed, and justly so, that we were, par
exultant, the " Union party." In 1863 we
are calling ou the the people to allow a few
slave holders to divide this great Union, con
secrated by the blood of our Fathers, and to
allow another Government tospring up whose
corner-stone is fel tverv. The mission of the
Party should be to give the Government all
it asks for in men and money to put down this
atrocious Rebellion ; and also < by strong
moral support strengthen the bauds of the
Administration, so as to counteract the in
tiuence of the mud fanatics who i.-t part bur
rouud him.— I Vuverly Adoocjte<

Notwithstand the quotation of gold in the
Richmond papers, it is kuowu here that, from
$'J to $6 50 in Confederate notes have been

two days in Frdericksburg ; and, moreover,
$2 25 in Virginia bank Dotes and $3 50 in
Confederate notes are frcdy paid for our Na

The Richmond Examiner of yesterday has
an extraordinary leader, the tone of which is
evidently intended to prepare the public mind
of the South for seriuus reverses to the Con

nificant language :
" The active operation of the chief Union
army under Hooker are now commenced, turn
either a decisive battle, or the retreat of Gen.
Le \ must be the speedy consequence, and the
lutter contingency is possible, but not proba
ble ; at.d auother heavy struggle over the
Ruppuhaunock may be safely anticipated "
After speculating upou the supposed plan
of Gen. Hooker, and the strength and proba
biiities of success of General Lee's force, the
editor remarks : "If, however, the Confede

of the Union State Central Committee, in fix
ing the time and locality of holding the Un

order to set our friends right as to this, we
repeal thaj the time fixed is the FIRST I>AY OF

the loyal press will give this mutter some at
tention, aud state the time of holding tbe con
yention properly. The conclusion in the com
mittec as to the time and place was unaui
mous. Every member seemed to feel that it
was due the U niou meu of the great western
and northern counties of the State, that the
next, gubernatorial nominating contention
should be held iu that vicinity, and we cheer
fully aequicce in that decision as one of de

We trust that our bretheren of the press
will make the correction in call for the Slate

B©U The Atlanta Confederacy contains an
account of a raid in North Aiabuma by the
Union brigade under Col. Corwin. The cx
pedition, accompanied by gunboats, reached
Tuscutnbia February 2'2. The gunboats de
stroyed two ferry boats at Toscuuibia, and an
other at Florence. Soon after dark, the tin
ion advance guard dashed into Tuscuinbia and
dispersed the Kiebel cavalry, who lied to the
mountains. Col. Corwin occupied the towu,
and issued a proclamation levying assessments
on wealthy rebels. On the 25th ult, Colonel
Corwin proceeded into the interior,, taking
considerable plunder with him'.
BgL. A new gunboat, the Chenango, was
launched on Thursday, at Greenpoint. She
is like the Shamrock and others, two huodred
and forty feet long, thirty five feed wide, and
twelve feet deep. She will have but oue en
gine, with cylenders 58 inches in diameter aud
8 feet 9 inches stroke. The Chenango may
probably be ready for Bea about the 1-st of
WSF The report that our gun boats had tak
en Charleston, is unfounded.
A bill has been introduced into the New Jer
sey Legislature to incorporate a fibre disiuter
grating company for making cloth and paper
out of wood. The works are situated near
Elizabeth. The process of manufacturing is
thus described : The wood is placed in large
cylender, or steam gnu from which it is thrown
with such force by a charge of steam, as to
separate every fibre from its feilow, the dis
integration being rendered so complete that
the fragmentary remnant would hardly be re
cognized us having ever beloned to a solid
body. These fibres are readily made iuto
per and cloth.
It seems to be pretty certain that the
Rebels'ure about to abandon Fredericksburg,
and fall back nearly to Richmond. They fear
au attack byway of James River.
