DINA:RFS OF IMPRUDDICE.—When the misguided
and imprudent votary of pleasure finds he has imbibed
the seeds of this painful disease, it toe often happens that
an ill-timed sense of shame or dread of discovery deters
him from applying to those who, from education and re.
spectability can alone befriend him, delaying till the cou .
stitutional symptoms of this horrid disease make theo
appearance, affecting the head, throat, UMW, skin, he.,
progressing on with frightful rapidity, till death puts a
period to his dreadful sufferings by sending him to "11151
bourne from whence so traveler returns." It is a mei
acholy fact that thousands fall victims to this terrible
disease, owing to the unskilfulness of ignorant pretend

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of
Representatives of the United States of America
in Congress asseMbled, That if, during the
present or any future insurrection against the
government of the United States, alter the
President ot the United States shall have de
dared, by proclamation, that the laws of the
United States are opposed and the execution
thereof obstructed by combinations too power
tut to be suppressed by the ordinary course of
judicial proceedings, or by the power vested in
the marshals, by law, any person or persons, his
her or their agent, attorney or employee, shall
Purchase or atquire, sell or give, any property
of whatsoever kind or description, with intent
to use or employ the same, or suffer the same to
be used or employed, in aiding, abetting or pro
moting such insurrection or resistance to the
laws, or any person or persons engaged therein;
or if any person or persons, being the owner or
Owners of any such property, shall knowingly
use or employ, or consent to the use or employ
ment of the same as aforesaid, all such proP
trty is hereby declared to be lawful subject of
prize and capture wherever found; and it shah
be ale duty of the President of the United
States to cause the same to be seized, confiscat
ed and condemned.
Sze. 2. And be it'further enacted, That such
prizes and capture shall be condemned in the
district or circuit court of the United States
haying juris.:iction, of the amount, or in ad
miralty in any district in which the same may
be seized, or into which they may be taken and
proceedings first instituted.
sac. S. And be it further enacted, That the
Attorney General, or any district attorney of
the United States in which said property may
at the time be, may institute the proceedings
of condemnation, and in such case they shall
be wholly for the benefit of the United States ;
or any person may file an information with such
attorney, in which case the proceedings shall
be, for the use of such informer and the United
States in equal parts.
Sic. 4. And be it further enacted. That when
ever hereafter, during the present insurrection
against the Government of the United States,

And whenever thereafter the person claiming

Taxation and the War
The following sensible remarks we find in the
Public Ledger, and commend them to the atten
tion of those who would rather see their glori
ous country laid in ruins than that business
should be interfered with, or pay a mod
erate tax to preserve it, in all its integrity, not
only for themselves, but for their children and
posterity to the latest generations :
"A correspondent complains that taxation
will be.very high to carry on the war, and he
asks cannot an honorable, brave and intelligent
people resort to some means of a peaceful ten
dency to settle this contest. Well, what are
the means he would suggest ? Are they the
consent by the Government to its own destruc
tion, and the establishment of two confedera
cies side by aide, composed of people of the
same kind, character, ambition and enterprise?
The present war, costly as it will be, would bh
as nothing compared with the cost of those
which would follow from the rivalries and mul
tiplied causes of collision between these two
Governments. The breaking up of the Union
would be the total annihilation of all republican
government on this continent. It is to prevent
this, the greatest disaster which could attend
the twenty millions of people now enjoying the
blessings of freedom that the present contest
is nuw waged. It will be expensive, no doubt,
but the waste of property is less an evil than
the loss of freedom. It cost a great deal of
Ireasure to estaulish the Government under
which we have flourished so long, and now that
its existence is threatened, all that is necessary
to maintain it will be expended on that object.
Against anarchy every man should war, for
without proper government, neither property,
liberty, or life itself is sate.
GEN. POPE'I3 PLAN— 'PELTING THE FIDDLER.' '---
A correspondent of the Cincinnati.Gazeite, writ
ing from St. Louis, says :
"The recent measures adopted by General
Pope to insure tranquility in the northent
counties of. the State are working admirably.
In every quarter one or more rank secessionists
have been place i upon the committees of safe
ty, greatly against their will. They flock to
the General to assure him of their inability to
preserve the peace, and beg that they may be
released from so onerous a duty ; but he invari
ably refuses to comply with their request, and
tells them that if they are not familiar with
the plottings of the traitors in their immediate
localities, he desires them to make themselves
so at once. 'lf you will dance, gentlemen,"
he says, 'you must pay the fiddler, and I can
promise you the music shall be expensive.'

is understood in official circles, says the Dis
patch, that the Secretary of War, the Hon. L.
p. Walker, has recommended to Congress an
addition to the Southern army of about three
hundred and fifty regiments, or such a number
as, added to the . force already organized, will
make an aggregate of five, hundred and sixty
regiments. Estimating each regiment at a
thousand men, this would give a form of five
hundred and sixty thousand men,,.rank and
file. The white popnlation of the Confederate
States being, in round numbers, five millions
six hundred thousand souls, the proposed army
would amount to just ten per cent. of the.
whole; or one soldier to every ten white people.

PREPARATION FOR AN ATTACK ON TH
THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC.
General Lee in Western Virginia;
A LOAN TO THE REBELS.
THE REBELS sHoRr OF POWDER.
It has been ascertained that the rebel Gen.
Magruder, of Newport notoriety, left Yorktown
a few days ago with about seven thousand of
the rebel forces there, and went in the direc
tion of Richmond. It is supposed they were to
join the column of Beauregard in front of
Washington. There are many evidences that
the rebels are concentrating between here and
Richmond nearly all the troops they have in
Virginia. This is construed into a preparation
on their part for an attack upon our lines here.
Col. Murphy's regiment moved yesterday
from Alexandria College to Hunter's Church,
a point two miles northeast of Bailey's Cross
roads. This movement will place Col. Mur

The army of the Potomac is almost entirely
brigaded. Each command is kept, ao far as
possible, distinct from the rest.
Navigation has at last been renewed on the
Ohio and Chesapeake Canal, five boats having
arrived to-day at Georgetown.
Senator Carlile, who has just arrived from
Western Virginia, states that the rebel forces
under Lee had crossed Cheat River in two bod
ies, five thousand by the road from Staunton,
and another body by the road from Lewisburg.
They were within fifteen miles of Gen. Rosen
cram' position, near Cheat Mountain Pass,
which commands two roads.
As the rebels at Norfolk had on a former oc.
casion fired upon a flag of truce going from our
side, the reception of the flag of truce from
them which brought the surgeons, has occa
sioned some comment. It appears, however,
that an ample apology had been made for the
assault upon our flag of truce, and the assurance
given that the officer in command on that oc
casion had been dismissed from the rebel ser
vice for permitting it.
A rumor is current that Mr. Corcoran, the
celebrated banker and money lender here, who
has amassed an immense fortune out of the.
'United States government, has proposed to aid
the rebels by loaning them money. What he
will be able to lend them will be but a drop in
the bucket full of their needs. But the act
would be that of the .viper trying to sting to
death the bosom in which it was warmed into
A slave who escaped from Manassas, states
that he was a private in the Quartermaster's
Department, and he had heard him say on
Tuesday before the battle, that silty-five thou
sand rations had been given out that day. The
troops, during Friday and Saturday, arrived at
the rate of two or three thousand a day. He
states that the rebels were short of powder, and
that no ordinary offence was so severely pun
ished as a waste of it.
