JAL S. JENNINGS,
t'A 'Sentiment not to be appalled, corrupted or
'Oosnpromised.. It knows no baseness; it cowers to
, no , danger; it oppresses no weakness. Destructive
only of despotism, it is the sole conservator of lib
arty, labor and property. It is 'the sentiment of
...Freedom, of equal rights, of equal obligations--the
law of nature pervading the law of the land.'

RETIREMENT OF GENERAL SCOTT.
The retirement of this glorious old vet
eran from the command of the Federal
forces, while it will be received with pro
found regret by his grateful and admiring
countrymen, is at the same time opportune
for his fame, if not fortunate. for our arms.
Age and its increasing infirmities had
long unfitted him for the active duties of
the field and . were rapidly disqualifying
him for the labors of the cabinet, and ad
monished him that he should quit the
cares and toils of his august position be
fore his faculties quit him. The brave
old warrior did well to heed the admoni
tion, and to put an interval of rest and
quiet between himself and the world
where the din of arms is never heard. A
long and brilliantly successful career had
not only made him the first soldier of the
Republic, but the foremost captain of
Christendom, and left him no'•hing to de
ere and nothing to attain in the way of
his profession. If anything were wanting
to his patriotism, it has been furnished in
the enfeebling fatigues and anxieties he
has undergone within the past few months
itt his efforts to organize the military
forces of the country, and to create the re
sources which are eventually to give tri
umph to the right and permanency to the
Government. Ile has done a good work,
and now leaves to men of youth and vigor
the execution of the plans his rare mili
tary genius and ripe experience have con
tributed so touch in devising. That his
aims and wishes will be carried out, and
that the Government and the Union will
be preserved ..and perpetuated we have no
more doubt than we have of the goodness
of Heaven. This is too good a Govern
ment to be lightly regarded or carelessly
defended, and the millions who have been
reared under and blessed by it will not
give it up while they have a stout arm
left to do battle for it. 'With the masses
of the people the love of this Union is a
passion, and like the tree of Clan Alpine,
"Moored in the rifted rock,
Proof to the tempest shock,
Firmer he roots him the ruder it blows,"
it wilt only grow in depth and intensity
with the perils which euviron its object.
SPEAKER OF THE NEXT HOUSE.
Col. WM. HoritiNs, of Washington
county, is favorably spoken of by several
of our cotemporaries for the Speakership
of the next House. His large legislative
experience and parliamentary knowledge,
not lees than his courtesy and integrity,
pre-eminently fit him for the position, and
we hope to hear of his election. Besides,
.no man in the State has been more con
sistent and zealous in his devotion to
Democratic principles And policy, and few
deserve better of the party. His selection
would not only redound to the credit of
the party, but to the advantage of the
people, as he has ths ability and dignity to
honer the station. We shall be dis
appointed if he is not chosen for the place
with singular unanimity,
There is much speculation et present
among newspaper scribblers and corres
pondents as to whether we shall have a
forward movement of our Potomac forces
or not, during the autumn or winter
months. The opinions are as varied as the
hues of the rainbow, and are predicated,
in many instances, on the most absurd and
improbable conjectures, From all we can
gather, we are led to believe there will be
no decisive engagement in Eastern Vir
ginia before Spring, though a general bat

in on us at meal-time °ace a day for a

destination. Such a Cabbage as this
would be good enough food for the gods.

ASTOUNDING FRAUDS IN FRE
The Evening Chronicle of Tnesday last
"The Cincinnati Enquirer of Sunday con
tained an abstract of the report of the
Congressional Committee of Investigation,
on the frauds of the Western Department.
The terms of this abstract are so explicit
and its tones so authoritative as to carry
the conviction that it is, in the main, ac
curate and authentic. The individual
who appears here most deeply implicated
is Brigadier General McKinstry. The
record is positively frightful and sicken
ing. It would appear absolutely incredi
ble that this nation, or that the human
race could possess such greedy and
shameless robbers ; men who would sell
their own God-forsaken souls, or batten on
their country's ruin, for a little filthy
lucre. If our rulers are too tender to
shoot or hang up these heartless spectila
tors in the most summary method, after
the manner of Wellington or Napoleon, or
if Congress will not pass the most strin
gent laws against these public theives and
speculating scoundrels, then the people
ought to take the matter in hand, and
either lynch them, or else throw them into
general scorn and contempt, that they may
be forever under the ban of decent society
—the companions of jail-birds and pick
pockets—hated and despised of all men.
Our State abounds with just such scoun
drels, who are growing rich by perpetra
ting the most abominable frauds on the
Government in this the hour of its ex
tremity, and in specluating on the com
forts and purses of poor soldiers. These
robbers need not think that because the
Press and the People are now silent, that
they are not watchful. Every villainous
speculator of them all is marked as was
Cain, or the woman with the scarlet letter,
and when the time of reckoning does
come, the settlement will be awful, and the
greedy robbers who have filled their pock
ets with government, or with soldiers'
gold, will wish they had never been born."
The Committee has been in session in St.
Louis since the 15th of October, and ex
amined 123 witnesses. Their report of the
testimony fills a volume of 2480 pages, and
it will be laid before Congress the ap
proaching session. There is proof of in
direct bribery of Brigadier General Mc-
Kinstry by a lot of hungry contractors,
who presented a silver service to his wife
worth s3,ooo,—proof of wholesale swindling
in horses and mules, hay and boats, steam
ers, blankets, oats, &c.,—proof of fright
ful villainy in awarding the "fortification"
contracts, and of shameless extravagance
in the erection of Barracks for Fremont's
Body Guard, &c., &c. In a word, the evi
dence is overwhelming as to the reckless
management of the Western Department,
and self-respect will compel the Adminis
tration to remove Fremont immediately,
if it has not done so already: He may be
a brave soldier, but is a wretched financier.

DrtD3lol OF BENTIEMIT AT THE
The Rochester (N. Y.) Union, an able
and earnest advocate of a vigorous prose
cution of the War, thus "takes off" the de
signing demagogues who labor assiduously
to create the impression that there are
great and dangerous differences of opinion
at the North as to the propriety of carry
ing on the present struggle until Rebellion
is effectually crushed out :
"The Republican press, on the other
hand, violate truth and decency for the
purpose of producing the false impression
that there is a powerful party at the North
numbering hundreds of thousands of able
bodied men whose every sympathy is on
the side of the rebel cause. If by garbling
or otherwise perverting a speech or news
paper paragraph they can so distort its
meaning as to make it appear to give aid
and comfort to the enemy, while the
known intent of the author was the exact
ly opposite, they manifest as much alacrity
in the shameless business as if they were
thus adding a regiment to the Union for
ces. Never before in the political history
of this country has there been exhibited
such a flagrant dilregard of the obliga
tions which patriotism imposes upon every .
citizen—simply, perhaps, because never
before has there been such an excellent
opportunity for exhibiting the hitherto un
fathomed baseness of the heartless and
unprincipled demagogue. Why, now it is
considered a highlymeritorious act,entitling
to fulsome and extravagant praise and to
such compensation as his eulogists have at
command, to denounce as traitors and rebels
men who never drew a disloyal breath, who
have always maintained an unsullied rep
utation and who have devoted their time,
their money and even their own sons to
putting down this most inexcusable and
wicked rebellion. We know of more than
one instance of men who have consented
to a minor son volunteering—and whose
refusal would have prevented him from
volunteering—who are denounced as rebel
sympathizers and traitors at heart, merely
because they differ in their views of po
litical duty from their neigbors ; with
whom, however, they do not differ as to
the necessity of depending on force alone
for the overthrow of Jeff. Davis and his
Government. Is this the way to convince
the rebels that the North is a unit in op
position to their pretensions? Is this the
way to convert moral into an auxiliary of
military power? Is this the way to ex
emplify our patriotism and to establish our
claims to the honors and rewards which
appropriately belong to the wisest and
best? There can be no two opinions on
The charge that the Democratic organ
ization at the North, embracing a million
and a half of voters, or any-portion of
them,_have any sympathies with secession,
is made for the purpose of getting office
by men who desire to inculcate the idea
that they are purer patriots than others,
and for this paltry purpose the public in
terests sufler ; for, of course, the South is
encouraged by the propagation of the
falsehood that she has friends, that exist
only in the charge of partizan selfishness
It is now authoritatively announced that
the receipts of the customs for the present
year will not amount to more than twenty
million dollars, ten million less than even
Secreatary Chase's estimate. When the
Morrill tariff was first enacted it was
claimed that the receipts under it would
reach sixty millions, but the circumstances
of the country have so changed since then
that the estimates of that period are value
It is evident from this state of things
that we are about entering upon a new era
in the financial history of the country.—
Hereafter direct taxation is inevitable, as
custom duties will be entirely inadequate
to the support of the Government and the
payment of the enormous debts we are
contracting. The foreign trade of the
country will, in any event, be much less for
several years to come than it has been in
the past, and the deficit in our revenues
in consequence must be provided for in
some other way. This matter will assume
great importance before the sitting of Con
gress, and upon that body will be thrown
the delicate and responsible duty of orig
inating a new system of ways and means
to furnish the Government with money
to meet its current expenses and pay its

Agent for the sale of this admirable Ma
chine, and we are glad to know is doing
a brisk business, notwithstanding the

secret of his success, however, is to be
found in the unrivalled excellence of the
Howe Machine, which has recently been
perfected by its distinguished invention,
and is in increased demand for family use.
We know of no machine which will at all
compare with it for general purposes, and
we would not be without for it three times
its cost. Our readers in Greene and ad

most indispensible requisite to every well
ordered household should call on Mr.

Losses on both Sides -- Our Trophies,
Prisoners, &0., &O.
CAIRO, ILL., Nov. 7.—An Expedition left
here last 'night, under command of Gener
als Grant and McClernand, and landed at
Belmont, Mo., three miles above Colum
bus, at eight o'clock this morning. The
Federal troops, numbering thirty-five hun
dred, engaged the rebels, about seven
thousand in number, at eleven o'clock.—
The battle lasted till sundown, when the
rebels were driven from their entrench
ments across the river, with great loss.—
Their camp was burned, and their stores,
with all their baggage, cannon, horses and
mules, with one hundred prisoners, were
taken. The Federals then retired, the reb
els having received reinforcements from
Columbus. Both Generals had horses
shot under them. Col. Dougherty, of Illi
nois, was wounded and taken prisoner.—
The rebel loss is not known. The Feder
al loss is believed to be from three to five

CHICAGO, Nov. B.—A special Cairo dis
patch to-day gives particulars of the fight
at Belmont yesterday. Our force consisted
of the following Illinois Regiments: 22d,
Colonel Daugherty ; 27th, Colonel Buford;
30th, Colonel Fouke; 31st, Colonel Logan;
7th lowa Regiment, Colonel Lamon ; Tay
lor's Chicago Artillery ; Dollen's and De
lano's Cavalry. They left Cairo on the
steamers Alex. Scott, Chancellor, Mem
phis and Keystone State, accompanied by
the gunboats Lexington and Tyler. After
landing, they were formed in line of battle,
General McClernard in command of the
Cairo troops and Col. Daugherty the Bird's
Point troops. They were encountered by
the rebels, seven thousand strong, and
fought every inch of the way to the ene
my's camp, making sad havoc of the ene
my's ranks. Colonel Buford was the first
to plant the stars and stripes in the ene
my's camp. Col. Daugherty's regiment
captured the rebel battery of twelve pieces,
two of which were brought away. Col.
Fouke's men suffered greatly, as they were
in front of the batteries before they were
taken. After taking possession of the reb
el's camp, it. was discovered that the rebels
were crossing over from Kentucky, for the
purpose of attacking us in the rear. An
order was given to return to ourirts, when
our men were attacked by reinforce
ment of several thousand from Columbus.
Another severe engagement then took
place, in which our troops suffered severe
ly. The forces as far as ascertained at a
late hour last night are as follows: Of the
Thirtieth Regiment, one hundred and sixty
are missing; Major McClerken was woun
ded and taken prisoner. Of the Twenty-
First, one hundred and forty are missing.
Gol. Buford's regiment returned too late
to obtain any particulars. Col. Dougherty
is reported taken prisoner. Colonel La
mon is reported badly wounded.
Taylor's battery lost one gun. We have
taken two hundred and fjty prisoners, a num
ber of whom were wounded. The rebels
killed will amount to three hundred. The
ground was completely strewn with dead
bodies. The rebel, Colonel Wright, ot' the
13th Tennessee regiment, was killed.—
General Cheatham commanded the rebels
in the fight, Maj. Gen. Polk being at Co
hunks. It is stated that Gen. Johnson
was wounded. The gun boats rendered
efficient service in covering the retreat,
mowing down the rebels with grape, but
killing some of our own men. A flag of
truce left Cairo this morning for Columbus
with forty or fifty wounded rebels.

Vessels Lost in the Gale--The Crews Pris-
on ers—Bombardment of Port Royal.
FORTRESS Moxtoe, November 7.—The
steamer Spaulding left for Hatteras Inlet
last evening with a cargo of commissary
stores. It is more than probable that
some of the trrops will return in her. It
is understood at Old Point that Hatter

tance to abandon. Should the 20th Indi

transport, whose name is not given, were
lost during the gale. One at Kill Devil

W. B. LASSCELL—Dear Sir: * • * In regard to

we are well pleased with it. We have tried it on al

pleased with it. I have taken some pains to observe
the construction and work of "Wheeler &
"Singer's," "Harris' Improved,” "Forest City," and
some other machines, and would be entirely unwilling
to exchange for the best of them; and sonic, machines
