WASHINGTON, Aug. 13, 1861.
To the Editor of the Telegraph:
Will you please state that an immense
arm tuit of vexation to officers, and of hunger
to troops, would be avoided if the quartertnas
ter of each regiment of volunteers ordered to
Washington would go on one train in advance
of the regiinent, and make his requisition upon government for ration, and see that all needful
supplies. are ready on the arrival of the men.
When this is not done there is often an una
voidable delay of hours before the troops can
obtain food or refreshinents. This is part of
the business of quartermasters, and they ought
to look to it. Some member of the Sanitary
Commission 14 usually at the station on the
arrival of troops; to minister to the wants of
the sick. Respectfully, .
Secretary of Sanitary Commission
"EXPERIENCE TRAMS," is a wise proverb, and
recent events ought to impresS it very
. tleeply
upon the public mind. We have lost as much
from vanity and from self-confidence as from a
want of aptir. ciistion of our enclitics. We forget
bow king they have had the reins of power, and
how accustomed they have been to make the
mo tof the power they - possessed. In a com
mon war for common objects the south has al
ways shown that it had brave, skillful and ex
perienced men, and while she North has devel
oped men of equal bravery and skill, it has not
been so devoted to arms. We have been con
tent to he rather a utilitarian people than oth
erwisi., while the south has shown a love for
those artsi - and acquirements which belong to
the field, Each section of the country has had
its peculiar advantages and its particular train
ing, and all we mean to say is that one part of
it him been more fond of the turf, the saddle,
the use of the; gun, bait, and pistol than. the_
other. Climate has had more effect in making
the dietinetions between us, and a difference of
institutions has not been without its influence
also, but had the condition or places of each
been changed, - each would have taken the place
of the other without regard to climate or in
Notwithstanding the cheap postagd as adopted
in this country, there are many who try to
evade its payment by sending gloves, collars,
handkerchiefs, seeds, Sze., labelled as newspa
pers:'So. loosely have the affairs of the Post
office been managed for a, few years, that but
few of these little delinquencies have been de
tected. The other day a package marked " one
newel:A*7Y paid, was addressed to a produce
dealer' in New England. Upon examination at
the Chicago Post office it was found to contain
two samples of flour, with orders how to sell
and at what price. The samples weighed less
than siX . Vtinees, and would only have cost six
cents in an envelope ; but the desire to save a
half dime is likely to entail disgrace and a
heavy fine from the government on the perpe
trators of this little transaction.
IT 18 'It'I:PORTED that evidence has been discov
ered, showing that before Jeff. Davis resigned
his seat in the United States Senate, he made
out a list of men who were to be made officers
in the rebel army. There is nothing very
strange in this report, either, because it was a
threat of the Southern Democrats of long stand:
leg, that if the people of 'the country dared to
elect any man President of the United States
personnlly or politically obnoxious to them,
they would disiolve the Union. This threat
was the standing boast of every southern dele
gation in the Democratic National Convention
for thetuit twelve years, and it has at length
been carried out. diem: —We wonder if that
list contains the names of any of the valiant
Colonels who displaytheir milituyardor through
the cotumns of the Patriot, in giving aid and
comfort to Davis and his followers.

One of the darling plans of those who are en
gaged in damaging the efforts to vindicate the
federal laws and authority, is to create the im
pression in the loyal, and impart the informa
tion to the rebel states, that there. is a want of
unanimity in the consultation and actions be
tween the President and his Cabinet. If the
dough-face press and their traitor allies of the
Patriot and Union ilk can succeed in creating
this impression in the north or loyal states,they
hope to affect the credit of the government, and
thereby completely bankrupt the national
Treasury. By this means they expect to de
moralise the army, weaken our resources and
cripple our means of national defense against
the threatened incursions of the rebels not only
on the federal capital,. but to the principalcom
menial emporiums and cities of refinement and
prosperity in the loyal states. It is a deep laid
and well digested; plan „thns, .to giye aid and
comfort to theenemy,.and ieonr readers have
noticed the persistent zeal with which the Pa
triot and .Unian has insisted on these. ftagree
tnents in the Cabinet, and the coarse and cow
ardly manner with which it has pursued and ma
ligned its individual members, they can at once
estimate the character it bears towards this unho
ly plot to bring 'further disgrace upon the coun
try by weakening the efforts of that country to
maintain its own authority. These miscreants in
thus assailing the harmony and unanimity of
the Cabinet, and insisting that there are dif
ferences existing in : its: councils which amount
to personal antagonism and objections to prin-
Ciplesind policies, aim at the, purpose of con
veying by falsehood the intelligence to European
courts,that the American government is totter
ing and reeling to destruction, unable to Sustain
the weight of its own power, and unworthy the
respect and confidence of the powers of the
world. This is the work of that portion of the
Democratic press of the loyal states which sup
ported John.D. Breckinxidge for the Presidency,
and which are now Seconding his efforts and
threats td destroy the administration of Abra
ham Lincoln. And if they can accomplish this
purpose, if they can brow-beat the free masses
of the north, and rob the ballot box of itspower
and prestige, so that slavery is, maintained in
its ancient force, and rebel traitors are allowed 1
to escape retribution, the country,. the adminis
tration and our nationality may sink beneath
their feet and perish forever.
So far as the President and the Cabinet are
Concerned, there never was more confidence be
tween any Executive and his legal advisers, and
never more reliance reposed by each in the other
as men, as individuals and as statesmen, thatall
their sfforts were for the general good and the
national safety.' The head of each Departinent
devotes himself zealously to the work'sissigned
to him, and when each . Secretary does, this, he
finds himself surrounded by a daily accuinula
tion of bushiess which engages all his energies
and industry. They agree on the great princi
ple that this government has the power to pre
serve its own authority. They are proudly
Conscious that they have been invested with
that power, and they are therefore determined
to preserve at,d ununtain in all its force and
Majesty, the auth'oritf • Which the rebellion was
Created to destroy. This resolution, no longer
to'e mistaken,'Snnoys the northern Secret ally
of traitors. It has aroused the determination
of the open syrnpathiSers in our own midst, who
can do nothing more to frustrate the efforts of
Patriotic men, than by casting doebton their pur
Poses, or sowing discord in their councils. The
desperation with which these men pursue their
objects, exposes the mid zeal of the black
4earted villains, and sdoucr or later it will be
come the duty of loyal - men in the free states,
to turn their sabres and their bayonets on those
in the free states who are novinaing their zeal,
, perseverance and malice to damage the cause
of the Union.
As the President and Cabinet are a unit, so
#e the people, on the Subject of the War. As
the President and Cabinet labor zealously to re
deem the land from anarchy, to rescue business
from distraction, to save lab,,r from perishing,
and to restore the Union to harmony, so are the
people zealous to sustain and support Abraham
Lincoln. The faith that is lacking for him is
evinced by the politicians who never suppJrt
that which they cannot control. It is the peo
ple who confide in the Cabinet. And when
they are thus assured of the harmony existing
between both the President and every member
of the Cabinet, and among them altogether
and individually, their confidence in the Gov
ernment Is increaSed, their hopes in restoration
and vindication strengthened, and their faith in
the-stability of free institutions placed beyond
doubt or dismay. •
EVERY DAY demonstrates the necessity of dis
cipline among our troops, and the fact is no
longer queStioned, that without it, our armies .
are worthless, and with it, invincible. This
is 'shoWn in the condition In which the crack
regiments of Zous.ves which lately returned
to New York. They had become demor
alized by a lack of discipline, and when
they returned to New York lately, their condi
tion was truly deplorable. The New York Ex
press says of them that the few were compared
withthe.many ;Ithe colonel who had givElm
them a name, was stricken low ; the woumded
were borne in carriages; the flag that waved so
graceftilly three Monthi before, loOk-ed soiled
and draggled. The crowd was not enthusiastic;
the'men ththiiselves niust have bitterly felt the
change. But this is only one of the chances of
life, - and`" ispealallY of War; If it teach us'a les
son, the great need ofdieipline, the'nselessness
even of strecgth and enthusiasm without that
moral force whiCh only severe discipline can
produce either in the army' or a regiment, the
contrast would not have been without its uses.
Let it be carefully noted and the lesson taken
to heart.
A HARTFORD paper remarks : "In reply to a
great many of our exchanges who hove the
question at the head of their leading columns,—
"'0 say, does that Star-Spangled Banner yet
O'er the land of the free and the home of

When the corrupt old organization of the
democratic party was in power. the slavery in
fluence used it to oppress and degrade northern
labor. The constant cry against protection
and the consequent injury to the labor of the
free states, came always from the democratic:
party. It maintained its ioliainistratons by
pandering to the slave power, and during every
single past democratic rule the institution of sla
very was more or less extendedand enfranchised,
until its lusts for political power culminived in
the rebellion which is now .in armed array
against the legitimate government of the coun
try. This is the result of the democracy preach
ed by the clique which control the course and
mould the sentiments of the Patriot. It is the
end of a policy that was inscribed upon its ban
ners last fall when it sought to make the traitor
Breekinridge President, knowing at the time
that he was colleaging and plotting with the
very men who have since achieved the tempo
rary disembursment of this Union. Since the
southern democracy can no longer control the
masses of the north, and hitch the conviction of
duty which the northern laboring man feels for
his country, to their own dogmas, creeds and
institutions, it has become the work of the
dough-faces such as control the Patriot to intim
idate opposition to the rebellion by declaring
that the objects of those who are struggling to
maintain the federal power, are to overthrow
the institution of slavery, to release the slave
and turn him loose on northern society. Hera
is the plan of the northern sympathiser with
treason. That which the south makes the mo
tive of rebellion, the northern dough face of
the Barrett and McDowell order make the ex
cuse for refusing to aid in suppressing such a
rebellion. And with this excuse they .beseige
the public prejudice of the north, in ancient
democratic style, - and with all thepeculiar force
of the erudite heads which preside over the col
umns of the Patriot, they depend mere upon a
misstatement and a false argument thim they
do upon the truth, or the facts as they exist, for
the maintenance of their cause. They know
that they are creating false impressions when
they declare that the slave population of the
south is to be driven on the people of the north—
they know that such an undertaking is a physi
cal and natural imwssibility,"but it suits the
purpose for which they now labor, and insures
the embarrassment of the federal administra
tion, while it gives aid and comfort to their
rebel friends and allies in the south.
The Patriot and Union knows that as the in
fluence and power of the institution of slavery
is crushed or suppressed, the hopes and even
the memory of democracy arc bound to be
come extinct. They know that the advocates of
Southern slavery and the tendencies of northern
ou g h-faceism snch as maintained oneof its pro
prietors in position as a committee clerk in the
United States Senate, brought about this rebel
lion, and however they may
. seek to avoid it,
the wrongs that it has already inflicted upon
this nation, are to be traced alone to the orga
tization of the democratic party. • Our labor
bas been blighted by the same influence. It
made a renegade and ingrate of Dallas when
he was forced to defeat just anti equitable re;ve--
tme ]aws. It made a usurper of Buchanan,
when he sought to use his power to advance its
interests in all our territories —and now it make s
traitors of small men like Barrett and McDowell,
when it blends theft zeal in favor of its own
exploded dogmas, and leads them into open re
bollion and sympathy with those who are con
spiring to destroy the only free government on
God's foot-stool
—Such are the twistings and shiftings of the
Lolly and the vanity which still enliven the
rotten carcass of democracy in Pennsylvania.
TUE PRUDENCE or WISE is perfectly astound
ing, and it is refreshing in these hot-headed
times to find a man who feels it better to eat
his words than risk his head, who thinks glory
a poor compensation fur life, and who regards
feet-as much better than rifles, when danger is
near. The valiant Ex-Governor of Virginia,
when the sound of battle was afar off, was like
the war horse of Job, he " snorted," he "paw
ed," he cried " ha ha" at the sound of the cap
tains, but when face to face with the fire, like
Salaam's ass he wont go. In his oration last
June he said : "I rejoice in this war."----
',` Though your pathway be through fire or a
- river of blood, turn not aside," " Let your
aim be to get into close quarters, with a few
decided vigorous movements, always pushing
forward, never back." The meaning of this
and much more of the same nature is learned
from Gen. Cox's brief despatch . of August Ist.
" Wise fled without fighting, destroying the bridges
t 9 prevent pursuit. We have captured a thousand
Muskets and several kegs of cannon powder."
Tow are the mighty fallen!

There is information through more than one
reliable source, that Jefferson Davis strongly
contemplates the invasion of Washington, nut
to hold the city, blit to destroy it. He hesitates
Rot an inability to do it, but on the loyalty of
Maryland. Strenuous exertions are in progress
to secure a change of sentiment in favor of se
cession. That accomplished, the first move
of his army would be upon the capital,
ivith the desperate determination to mete out
to it the fate of Hampton.
There is a strong propensity here, just now,
to over-estimate the merits 'of the rebel army,
as there was to underrate them, previous to the
battle of Bull Ran. Many believe that they
are superior in efficiency to our own troops. It
is a very great mistake. Extensive and abun
dantly reliable evidence is at command proving
that, with the exception of a few heavy guns,
stolen from the United States armories and navy
yards, and a few officers who have, to their
everlastim , e' disgrace, gone over from the Uni
ted States military and naval service, they are
deficient in everything essential to a successful
campaign, and vastly inferior to the Federal
army. They have, singularly enough, gained
one or two temporary victories—enough to make
them feel their inevitable overthrow doubly se

Yesterday afternoon about half-past one
o'clock the steamer B.esolute was ordered front:
Aquia creek to Mathias Point, for the purpose
of reconnoitering, Peeing a battery tilled with'
barrels on shore just below the point, a boat
was sent fitom the Resolute with six men to
bring off the batteau
No sooner had the boat reached the beach
than a volley of musket balls w a s o p ene d upon
them front a secession force conceal: d iu the
voods, killing three men instantly, namely—
John Janice Fuller, of Brooklyn, master's
mate, who, it was subsequently ascertained,
was pierced by ten balls; George Seymour, cap
tain of the gun, of New York, by seven balls ;
and Thomas Dully, of Boston, by two balls.
Earnest Walters, a native of England, is wound
ed in the head—it is feared fatally.
Another volley was fired by the enemy as
they moved their position or as soon as they
had time to reload.
The Resolute was about seven hunured yards
from the shore and fired in the midst of the re
bels one shot of canister and nine of schrapnell,
with, it is thought, extensive havoc, while
other reports are positive to this effect.
The scene aboard the small boat is decribed
as heart sickening. The dead lying stretched
out in it covered with their own blood.
The boat was towed a short distance from the
shore by one of the crew named Sanderson, who
quietly slipped into the water for that purpose,
and thus concealed himself from the enemy.
The other uninjured man it is said lay tu the
boat stupified by the scene through which he
had just passed, while the wounded man helped
Sanderson to row the boat toward the Resolute,
from which assistance was immediately ren
dered. The enemy congratulated themselves
that they had killed the entire boat's crew.

at eleven o'clock, bringing with her the dead
