Thursday Afternoon, August 1, 1801:
THE SOLDIER AND HIS PAYMENT.
The business of paying thereturned volunteer
is progressing successfully and harmoniously,
and the difficulties of last week have been en
tirely settled by a complete obviation of the
errors and neglects then so justly complained
of by the soldier. There is no longer any sense
in denying that the wrongs and inconveniences
growing out of the delay to pay the soldiers,
were the result of the negligence and ignorance
of the officers in command. To these, of course,
there are honorable exceptions, but a careful
examination of all the facts, leads us to the
conviction that, had the pay rolls all been pro
perly made oat, and promptly presented to the
proper accounting officers, much of the delay
of last week would have been prevented, and
by this time all of the volunteers paid off, many
of them returned to their homes, • many others
re-enlisted and again bearing arms under the
flag of their country, and all of them well sat
isfied with the service, their commanders and
themselves. As it was, however, a bad feelingwas
engendered that could have been avoided, and
those censured who were entirely faultless in
the business, from the fact that they neither
had influence or power to control the circum
stances which created the wrong.
The Paymaster's Department in the United
States Army is necessarily one of the most la
borious and responsible in the government. In
a crisis like the present, we can judge of its
magnitude by the comparatively small amount
of its business that was transacted in this lo
cality. A single error creates confusion. If
the accounts of a company are not properly
made out and presented, it has the influence of
confusing an entire regiment, and thus for the
neglect of a subordinate officer, in a military
company, a department and all its attaches are
often brought into discredit. Nor has the Sec
retary of War any power over the disbursement
of the funds for the payment of the troops.—
That power is in the hands of the Secretary of
the Treasury, who is again supervised by the
auditors of the Treasury Department—and
thus, when the whole business is surveyed, we
can discover how much confusion can be created
by carelessness, and how much injury the ne
glects of others can do those in authority, who
hive no control in the premises, as well as
annoy and irritate gallant men who have faith
tully served their country.
We trust that the experience of the last ten
days, will be a salutory lesson hereafter to those
who aspire to command in the volunteer ser-
Tice. It bas taught men that there are other
dirties than those of drilling and disciplining
troOps, and that to do justice to all concerned, an
officer in the army must be industrious at all
times, "watchful of the comfort and interests or
his men, if he expects them to be cheerful and
obedient to command, or brave and efficient on
the battle field.
Hammer, once had Rome in his power, but
failed to march and possess himself of the im
perial city, and ever afterwards had to encoun
ter difficulties until disaster and death ended
his career. Jeff. Davis is the counterpart of
Hannibal. Had he followed the panic stricken
troops that fled in terror from Bull Run, to day
he might have been indulging in his usual dis
sipation in Washington city. The capitol of
the nation was in his grasp, but he failed to
stretch out his hand and possess himself of the
conquest, and never again will such an oppor
tunity be presented to the arch-traitor. We
allude to this fact only to illustrate the inability
and want of military judgment on the . part of
the rebel chief. He has always been represent
ed as a shrewd and sagacious tactician, an able
general and a bold leader. He is all these,
when he is certain of success, but no man in
this country lacks moral courage to a great 4
degree than Jefferson Davis. He acts without
conviction, and proceeds in all hii operations
with an impulse that fails the moment it is met
and opposed. He is a true type of the southern
Aristocrat, acculitomed to being obeyed, he be
comes confused when opposed, plunges into
passion when forced to a fair tight, while his
*lousy and envy never permit him either to
bestow on or receive the confidence of men with
*hem he Is associated.
We think, candidly, that the mistake of the
rebel Davis at Bull Run, in not pursuing the
federal forces in their panic-stricken flight,
turns the destiny of the rebellion entirely on
defeat. They pow become fugitives themselves.
Our treeliturderstand the operation of a mask
ed battery, and will, know hereafter how to at
tack, reduce, and possess themselves of such
points. They will proceed with more caution,
too, and make their retreat a lesson for the
rebate and themselves that will result favorably
to the Union in every battle that may be fought
hereafter. It gives the world a better knowl
edge of the pretensions of Davis. It exhibits
his abilities as a leader in their true light, and
while we do not desire to underrate the man, it
leaves him just exactly in the position in which
all who know him personally have long since
placed him, namely, in that of a pretender and
military ignOramus. There are a dozen officers
in the rebel army, any one of whom is the su
perior of Davis, while there are hundreds more
In the Mks who are his equal in every respect.
A PRUDENT POLICY OF ATTACK AND
In the inauguration of this rebellion, the
rebels evinced a lack of prudence, for the want
of which same identical quality the people of
the loyal states themselves are now suffering.
If the citizens of South Carolina had restrained
their eagerness to attack Fort Moultrie, and after
wards declined to assault Fort Sumter, perhaps—
we only mean perhaps in its fullest sense—they
might have succeeded in impressing the nations
of the world with faith in the integrity and jus
tice of their purposes—but by their haste and
evident bloody designs, the truth became start
lingly apparent that the intention of those who
led in this rebellion was to destroy a good gov
ernment, that an oligarchy of oppression and
tyrany could rise to power on its ruins. There
was no wisdom displayed by those who attempt
ed to direct the masses they had rallied to the
standard of rebellion. There was no proceed
ing calculated to induce the world to believe
that the rebellion was for a high and holy pur
pose, seeking the redemption of a people from
wrong, and the elevation of a nation to a posi
tion of respectability and prosperity. The
world felt that the reverse in every particular
was the object of the southern rebels-. Mankind of
all governments had nothing to offer that could
cheer anti animate those engaged in the mons
trous movement, simply because they could not
disguise the fact, that the issue involved im
braced the safety of the principle of civil and
religions liberty throughout the Christian and
civilized world; This could not be disguised
while the heads and fronts of the rebellion in
sisted that it was based on the right of one class
to enslave another, or the dogma that labor is
incapable of self-grovernment—and that the
principle of all govermients was to estab
distinctions in politics, ranks in society, and
exclusiveness in the benefits of government
The lesson and example given by the ill tem
per and haste of the southern rebels, were lost
on the people of the loyal states, and we were
only brought to a sense of the danger we were
creating, by a disaster which was in part to be
attributed to our own imprudence and impetu
osity. We have been brought back to order—
we are beginning to. appreciate discipline—we
are forced to recognize experience—and the
truth is now glaring us in the eyes, that what
wasriduculed as "redtape," "circumlocution," and
"old fogyism," must do the work of the cam
paign, by disciplining and directing the move
ments of armies, or we may yield all our inter
ests to our indiscretion, and are thus bound to
become-the prey of our enemies. It is tho vo
cation of "red tape" laboriously to prepare for
every emergency that can possibly arise to
thwart the great designs of a great undertaking.
"Red tape" clears the way of obstacles before
which impetuosity deems it glorious to die with
out having accomplished a single purpose but
throwing its life away. If we disrespect this
influence, we must also teas)✓ to respect every
thing that is stamped with learning, order and
regulation, and of course when we arrive at such
a condition in our public affairs, we are bound
to surrender the business of government to
anarchy and confusion. We are bound to al
low our vast military organization to become a
wild mob, that would, in its excesses and licen
tiousness, as freely turn its swords and bayonets
against, as for the defence of the government,
if allowed to become intoxicated and corrupted
by a looseness of discipline or a want of com
Under the influence of a re-organization of
the army, we already begin to observe a better
state of affairs in the ranks, and a healthier
condition of confidence between officers and
men. The army is to be left alone to its own
work, without regard to outside influence or
political dictation. The commands are to be
reposed in experienced hands, and the details
of campaigns are no longer to be made the sub
jects of newspaper discussions, by which the
enemy were heretofore informed of our most
minute plans. In such an organization, with
perfect discipline, order, obedience, confidence
and enthusiasm, no one can doubt that the re
sult, in the shortest possible time, will be en
tirely victorious to the forces of the govern
CAUSE AND EFFECT.
Among the acts of the recent treasonable con
vention in Virginia was one declaring that any
citizen of the commonwealth holding office un
der the government of the United States should
be forever banished from the state and declared
an alien and enemy. This act went into force yes
terday; and yesterday a number of government
clerks at Washington resigned their places, be
ing unwilling to expose themselves to penalties
which they felt assured would be promptly exe
cuted against them by the rebels, who do not
temporize with those they call their enemies.
Meantime, a despatch from St. Louis declares
that General Watkins, recently commander of
the rebel forces in Southeastern Missouri, re
signed on Saturday last ; and returned to his
home. Re is a man of wealth, and the news
that Congress proposes to pass an act confis
cating the property of persona in rebellion
against the government, alarmed him.
These two cases prove the wisdom and effi
ciency of such an act as. that which has since
then passed both , houses of Congress. It is only
necessary to see that its provisions are strictly
executed, and that immediately, wherever our
forces may have restored the authority of the
government. A few examples will do wonders
in inspiring property-holders in the southern
states with caution in their dealings with the
rebels. Let it be understood that this is one of
the inevitable penalties of rebellion against the
Union, and the aristocratic sympathisers with
this mutiny against the people will begin to see
cogent reasons for returning to their fidelity.

Secession attack upon a New York
THE REBELS DISPERSED BY A
CHARGE OF BAYONETS.
A GERMAN REGI KEN I' ATTACKED.
Aloe or Ten of the Secession Rioters
Last evening while the fifth New York regi
ment was passing through this city, and when
at the corner. of Enson street, a party of Irish
secessionists began cheering for Jeff Davis. The
cheering was accompanied by a shower of stones
that fell among the ranks of the volunteers.
The latter not forgetting the murderous riot of
the 19th of April, supposed that a repetition of
that bloody day was to be enacted. The sol
diers acting upon that impulse, immediately
fixed their bayonets and charged upon the men
who lined the sidewalks. Several shots were
also fired, but we could hear of no one being
During the riot a man named' Wm. Elliott,
one named Flaherty, and one other whose name
we could not learn, were arrested by the regi
ment and marched to the depot, the soldiers
declaring that they intended to take them to
New York as prisoners of war. We afterwards
learned that the rioters were released from cus
tody, upon their taking the oath of allegiance
to the United States. While the riot was in
progress, squads of soldiers chased the rioters in
all directions at the point of the bayonet. We
heard of several persons being injured in, this
manner, but were liftable to trace up the cor
rectness of the report.
[We learn by passengers on the train from
Baltimore this afternoon, that this morning an
attack was made upon a German regiment by
a party of secessionists, who assailed the soldiers
with stones. The latter fired into a crowd,
killing and wounding nine or ten of the rioters,
and quickly dispersing them.—En. TELEGRAPH.]
