rim UNION-TILE CONSFITUTION-AND
THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE. LAW.
Tuesday Afternoon, November 5,1861.
The New York Tribune, with its cotemporaries
of Gotham, have been, and in many instances
still are, prone to depreciate the great resources
of men and measures with which Pennsylvania
has sustained herself and the federal authority
in the stupendous crisis in which we are in
volved. But with the abundant proof of the
ability of the old Keystone State, comes the re
cognition of her claims, and with these estab
lished, comes also the admission of the ability
and eminence of the statesman whom Penn
sylvania indicated as her preference for a
voice and a vote in the Cabinet. The follow
ing allusion of the Tribune to the two
Secretaries, respectively of the War and Trea
sury Departments, proves better than we can
state, the change working in the regard of the
New York press for Pennsylvania, her interests
and her statesmen, and we print it as a compli
ment of that honest and candid character with
which the great labors of Secretary Cameron
are being commended by not only the press but
the people of the loyal states. Here is the lan
guage of the Tribune of to-day :
The Secretary of War and the Secretary of
the Treasury arrived in this city on Saturday
night, both on business connected with their
Departments. They timed their visit to the
journey of Gen. Scott, and made that the oc
casion of a demonstration of personal respect to
the veteran commander on his way to retire
ment from his labors and his rank.
Mr. Chase's visit was connected with the in
terests of the Financial Department over which
he so ably presides. Secretary Cameron in
spected yesterthy the fortifications which guard
our harbor. He will go to-day to West Point,
and thence to Springfield in Massachusetts to
examine the United States Armory. He will
probably continue his journey to Boston to in
spect the defenses of that city against attack
from the sea.
Mr. Cameron's great labors in raising, equip
ing, and organizing the army with which the
rebellion is to be crushed—the vigilance, wis
dom, and practical ability with which he has
guarded the public interests while providing
for the sudden expansion of the military power
of the nation from eighteen thousand men to
half a million, are at last recognized by the
country, and will soon be matter of history.—
At the age of 63, and in the possession of an
ample fortune acquired in business enterprises,
the secretary took charge of the War Depart
ment at a time when its duties were more bur
densome than ever rested upon any War Minis
ter of France in the years of her greatest strug
gles, whether under the Republic or under the
i The National impatience has demand
ed impossibilities. When the magnitude of the
contest we are engaged in has been appreciated
by the people, and their determination to suc
ceed has settled into an inflexible moral princi
ple, justice will be done to Simon Cameron's ad
ministration of his enormous trust.
THE CHIEFTAIN'S BUGLE.
McClellan's speech to the Pennsylvanians who
presented him a sword has a right proper ring
in it, like his address to the soldiers—" no de
feat, no retreat." The substance of it was,
that "the war cannot be long, though it may
be desperate." That is what the country wants;
what the Administration should proclaim ;
what our Generals and their troops should
McClellan has one indication of merit, at
least, and that is modesty. He admits that he
has not yet been tried ; he advises that the
honors and rewards intended for him should be
reserved until after events have proved his
worthiness; but at the same time he evinces the
Spirit which commands success. All that he
asks of the country is, confidence, forbearance,
patience. These we are sure he will have, and
particularly when he promises in return, en
ergy, determination, and if needs be, his heart's
It is not the function of a commander to talk;
a good one, as General Burnside said at the
breakfast to the Massachusetts Twenty-fifth the
other day, would rather fight a battle than
make a speech: but when he does talk we like
to hear such, brief, brisk, energetic sentences
as McClellan utters. They are like blasts from
a bugle, which animate and fortify our courage.
A MANLY LETTER
The following letter, addressed by Governor
Curtin to Lieutenant-General Winfield Scott,
is in obedience to the warm impulses which
ever animate the Governor of Pennsylvania,
and which will be perused with pleasure by the
people of the commonwealth :
Harrisburg, Nov. 6, 1861
Sra :—I regret exceedingly that you should
have passed through Harrisburg on Saturday last,
without my having any knowledge of your ap
proach or presence, as it would have given me
sincere pleasure to have had the opportunity of
plying the official and personal homage to which
your eminent patriotism and services entitle you,
and which every citizen of Pennsylvania would
rejoice to offer. Although infirmity of health
has compelled your retirement, we shall not
cease to cherish the memory of your glory, a n d
hope that you will long be preserved as a living
example of the highest public spirit and gal
lantry, and that our young men may learn from
your career that virtue and merit lead surely to
the affection of a grateful country.
With sentiments of the highest esteem, I am,
sir, your obedient servant.
A. G. CURTIN.
Lieutenant-General Winfield Scott, &c., &c
SUBSISTENCE OF THE PENNSYLVANIA
Since the breaking up of the camps of instruc
tion for the Pennsylvania Reserve Corps, estab
lished under the Act of 15th May, 1861, the
commonwealth has supplied subsistence only to
the troops concentrated at Camp Curtin. With
the sanction of Gov. Curtin an arrangement has
recently been effected between Commissary
General W. W. Irwin and Capt. Du Barry, the
U. S. Commissary stationed in this city, under
which the Federal Government assumes the
subsistence of the latter camp, in addition to
that of others through the state already within
their charge. For the present, therefore,
the functions of the Pennsylvania Commissairat
have ceased, Captain Du Barry announced
that his department could only receive the
troops as they were mustered into the service,
but Commissary Irwin was anxious to effect
an arrangement by which all the troops, those
who were in camps for instruction, those ar
riving daily, and those mustered into the
United States service, could be subsisted
alike by the Commissary General's Department
of the U. S. Army. On referring the subject to
the proper bureau in the War Department, the
proposition of Gen. Irwin was adopted, while
the U. S. Commissary General . also concluded
to subsist all the troops thus received under the
contract already in operation. for subsisting
those new regularly in the service in Camp
Cameron. This arrangement was resolved upon
before a notice could be served on the proper
officer at this post, who, without any knowledge
of such a plan having been adopted
by the Commissary General's Department at
Washington, had asked for proposals for sub.
sisting the troops thus to be received, and had
also received bids from various persons propo
sing to subsist the troops according to their
terms. These bids, in consequence of this
order, were transmitted to the Commissary
General, who, in view of his order in regard to
subsisting all the troops under the contract al
ready in operation, annulled the proposals
here referred to as having been asked for by an
officer of the Department in this city. The
old contractors are responsible men—the bids
and the manner in which they subsist the camps
are both liberal and just, and therefore, when
thus considered, there was no necessity of mak
ing a new contract, either on the policy of
economy on the part of the government, or an
act of justice to the soldiers who were to be
The transfer of the subsistence from the state
to the federal authorities, relieves the former of
all further labor or responsibility. Hereafterthe
troops will look to the federal authorities for
subsistence, and those authorities alone will be
responsible for their care and comfort. Under
the ,old arrangement it was ascertained that
the military fowl was being exhausted with
out the prompt return necessary to a just
regard for the interests of the common
wealth. Hence the necessity and determination
in having the plan adopted of the federal au
thorites assuming the responsibility. This plan
goes into operation to-day, when as we have
stated, the state of Pennsylvania will be
entirely relieved from all responsibility in sub
sisting both the troops intended for, and those
already mustered into the United States service.
This entire arrangement is due to the zeal and
energy with which Commissary General Irwin
has watched the interests of the state of Penn
, sylvania in his department, from the hour he
assumed the control of the commissariat of the
camps of the commonwealth. And in this
connection we must also add, that the relations
between the Governor and the Commissary were
always of that character which enabled them
to rely on the judgment of each other, while
the confidence of one for the other was never
impaired by a single act or word from either.
This confidence continues to exist, and, while
the duties of the Commissary General have been
diminished, it must be no less a source of grati
fication that his position, in the estimation of
the authorities, is the same as it was when sur
rounded by his multifarious duties. His labors
hereafter will be confined to the adjustment of
the accounts of his department, while Gov.
Curtin and his administration are thus com
pletely relieved from all further responsibility
in the subsistence of the volunteer troops from
The manner in which this transfer has been
effected, and the trouble and embarrassment of
which it will relieve the state, in our opinion,
suggests the propriety of the federal govern
ment at once assuming the charge of clothing
and quartering the troops thus subsisted by the
same authority. It would be productive of an
economy by reduCing the labor of our local de
partments and bringing the military organiza
tion of the county at once within the control
and supervision of the War Department, which
must ultimately assume their care and direction.
Certainly if so much, good is to be achieved by
the transfer of the commissariat of the state to
the federal officers at this point, an equal
amount of benefit would be derived by surren
dering at once the entire organization and man
agement of our forces to the same authority,
We make the suggestion on this inference, and
trust that it will be fairly considered by those
who have the power to order the transfer.
IT IS e ss am) by those intimately acquainted
with both Scott and McClellan that there never
has been a difference between them which in
the slightest degree affected their friendship for
each other. Their relations were pleasant and
harmonious, and it was Gen. Scott's suggestion
which brought McClellan to the Potomac. Dur
ing McClellan's campaign in Western Virginia
he was repeatedly complimented in private dis
patches by Gen. Scott, and after his greatest
triumph there it was intimated to him that he
would soon be wanted in a higher sphere to use
his talents in defence of the Union. Just before
the unfortunate battle of Manassas Gen. McClel
lan was upon the point of advancing to St an t on ,
Virginia, with his small but victorious army,
but the Stone Bridge disaster and the ineffi
ciency of Gen. Patterson put an end to the ad
vance of the federal troops in that part of Vir
ginia, and McClellan was drawn away to
Washington very suddenly. The utmost confi
dence is reposed in him by the government and
the troops. The fact that he can inspire such
confidence in his fellow-men speaks much in his

How the Rebels Boast and Manage
The public have little conception of the wiles
and artifices which a powerful and unscrupulous
foe will resort to carry out its purpose. The
rebel leaders have so much at state, and they
know so well the fate that awaits them at the
haods of deceived millions if they fail, that they
resort to the most desperate expedients to ac
complish the . I foreign recognition" they are
constantly promising to their obedient white
slaves of the south.
A gentleman of this city had occasion recent
ly to visit Montreal, and while there, stopped
at the Donegan Hotel. He found the house
filled with jubilant secessionists, who loudly
boasted that ere long France and England would
recognize the Confederate government, and that
the recent increase of the English force in Ca
nada was a part of the proposed programme.
The gentleman in question, a prominent mer
chant of this city, being a foreigner and speak
ing with a slight accent, heard more of their
plans than they would have been willing to di
vulge to one who was supposed to be a "Yankee
and Lincolnite." To his surprise he found that
a nephew of Beauregard's received letters from
the General every two days, addressed to the
President of the Bank of Montreal ; others of
the same kink received letters with equal regu
larity. He became well acquainted with Gen.
Magruder, who, with his family, has passed into
Canada without the slightest difficulty. There was
one man there who was looked upon with sus
picion by the southerners. When the New
Yorker reached Rouse's Point on his return,
this person politely informed him that he must
search him, as he seemed to have been intimate
with the southern rebels at Montreal. This
official, if he had kept a bright lookout pre
viously, might have discovered the rebel Ma
gruder, who quietly left the cars before they
reached the Point, and, in company with an ex-
Governor of Rhode Island, rode off in a light
wagon. Our informant met Magruder in this
city, and says that he boasted that their Gen
erals knew every plan of our Cabinet, and no
power under heaven could prevent them from
getting all the details they wished. The Gen
eral remarked with great emphasis, "We have
our friends in all the departments in Washing
ton, and we know how to keep them there."
Our informer is a man of decided intelligence,
and his statements are worthy of trust. He
says that the southerners in Montreal have
abundance of money ; they have their families
with them, and they get all the luxuries they
want from this city. They boast that they can
outbid the federal government in Europe, and
that very large advances have been made by
nominal British sympathisers, who long to see
the Republic torn up by the roots. They in
stanced the case of the Bermuda as an evidence
of what they intended to do, and said that the
successful entrance of such a vessel into the port
of Savannah was worth a great victory on the
field to them. Much of this is mere boasting,
but it has its effect.—New York Evening Post.
Improvement in Military Hospitals.
The Sanitary Committee are now engaged in
selecting sites for the erection of a number. of
military hospitals in or near Washington. Hos
pitals must be constructed with a special view
to these objects, and buildings erected for other
purposes will not answer for this purpose. The
hospital system has been greatly improved of
late years in Europe, and it is supposed that the
Sanitary Committee, having unlimited means;
will adopt a plan hich will be suited to the
requirements of an army of citizen soldiers,
most of whom have been accustomed to the
comforts of home.
Army hospitals are either temporary or per
manent, but for the present objects of the gov
ernment the former only are required. The
approved plans secure far much more space for
each patleut than hospitals generally afford.
It is said that an acre of ground will be neces
sary for a hospital that will properly accommo
date only four or five hundred patients. The
buildings preferred are only of one story.
In General McClellan's report from the "mil
itary commission to Europe" he records his
opinion that the best Russian military hospitals
are for comfort, convenience and cleanliness,
the model hospitals of the world. In all of
them, he says, the utmost order and cleanliness
is preserved, and the greatest attention paid to
the sick. The command is always invested in
an officer of the line, who has other officers as
assistants, while the surgeons have merely to
prescribe, order the diet, etc.
Finally, he recommends this system for adop
tion in this country, " in the event of the es
tablishment of large temporary hospitals dur
ing a war, or any concentration of a large num
ber of troops." It is to be remarked that the
greater number of the Rusian troops in the
Crimea were serfs, for serfdom had not been
then abolished, and it is hardly to be supposed
that the free volunteers, who compose our army
hereabouts, are to receive less care than Rus
sian serfs. The concentration of a large num•
ber of troops in and around Washington is to
be permanent rather than temporary r according
to present appearances.
The Lawrence Republican, of October 24, brings
us intelligence of serious troubles in Kansas.
On October 13, an armed body of rebels, among
them several Cherokees, surrounded Humboldt,
in Allen county, and after plundering the stores,
began to fire all the buildings. Twenty-one
houses and stores, and a mill—more than one
half the buildings in the place—were consumed.
The military company of the town chanced to
be drilling without arms at the time, and on re
sistance could be made.
On the night of October 22, ten armed men
visited Gardner, Johnson county, and succeeded
in getting goods to the amount of perhaps
$BOOO, including all the guns sent thither by the
Governor for the protection of the town. Gov.
Robinson had despatched an armed company
for the apprehension of these outlaws. The
Leavenworth Conservative has an account of a
fight that took place at Plattsburg, in Clinton
county, fifteen miles south of the Hanibal and
St. Joseph Railroad, on Sunday night, Oct. 27.
A force of seven hundred Union men attacked
and captured a camp of rebels, killing eight of
them, taking twelve prisoners, and capturing
one cannon and a lot of small arms.

CINCINNATI, Nov. 4.
The Commercial has advices from Gen. Rosen
craps up to Saturday evening :
On Friday morning, at 8 o'clock, the enemy
opened fire with two guns from points opposite
Gauley's Ferry and Camp Tompkins, and a noisy
fire of musketry. Their object was evidently
to cut off the supply trains. They succeeded in
sinking a ferry-boat on the Gauley river, and
threw about forty shells into the camp of the
Eleventh Ohio. Not one of our men was killed,
and only about half a dozen were wounded.
The majority of the shells thrown by the ene
my did not explode, and their musketry was
wild and irregular.
The ferry-boat, which had been sunk by the
enemy's shot on Friday, was raised that night,
and communication across the river restored.
There was no firing on Saturday on either
The position of the forces on Saturday even
ing was as follows :
The rebels were in possession of the left or
west bank of New river.
Gen. Schenck's brigade was a few miles above
the junction of Gauley and New rivers, on the
east side of New river.
Gen. Coxe's brigade and Gen. Rosecranb'
headquarters were near the junction of the
rivers, and between them, and Gen. Benham
was below the junction, on the right bank of
Floyd's force is believed 'to be about seven
It was believed in camp that Generals
Schneck's and Benham's brigades would be
thrown across the river above and below Floyd,
and catch him.
The loss of telegraphic communication was
occasioned by the alarm of the army operator,
who, when the firing opened, sent a hasty de
spatch to Clarksburg, announcing the battle,
and then commenced to move his office up the
Gauley. He was two or three miles up the
river, when he was overtaken by orders from
Gen. Rosecrans to return, and, while returning,
his wagon was driven over a precipice, and the
telegraphic apparatus destroyed.
Floyd's demonstration was rather agreeable
to Rosecrans than otherwise.
General Rosecrans was certain he could hold
his own, and expected to bag his assailants.
Col. Edgwick, of the Second Kentucky regi
ment, is reported to be wounded in the knee by
the splinter of a shell.

city, from Gauley Bridge on Saturday evening,
