In a late number of the Advocate of Peace, we
perused several very able articles, among which
was one with the above caption. The writer
opens his observations by exclaiming, what a
spectacle we are now exhibiting before the
world.—how strange, mournful and humiliating!
Our Union, so long our common trust and glory,
now spurned, intensely hated, and desperately
resisted by thrice as many as united seventy
five years ago in its formation ! Our govern
ment, so lately the pride of our own people, and
the admiration of the world, confessedly the
most benificent on earth, now trampled rudely,
fiercely in the dust by more than ten millions
of rebels leagued for its overthrow ! Our coun
try; so rich in natural resources, and till now
with such fair prospects before it of permanent,
steadily increasing prosperity beyond that of
any other in ancient or modern times, suddenly
smitten with a universal blight, and a fearful
uncertainty shrowding all the future ! Work
shops closed, and factories suspended ; marts of
trade comparatively deserted, vessels idle and
rotting at our wharves, , and legalised 1.-Piracy

With a common government over ms to protect

ful process, what conceivable apology can there
bh for what we now see in Our, land 1' Surely
somebody must be held to a fearful•responsibil
itir for all this. ' •
ori whom, then, does the blab:Le rest ?' On
Giese who do precisely what the 'constitution
and laws requirii, or on those who are ' confess
edly violating both by wholesale On this
point we find, in certain quarters, a stiarigeSorc
of logic ; a logic that makes it wrong for a govr
ernment to assert its own authorityi and insist
on the enforcement of its own laws ; wrong to
punish disobedience, and put down rebellion'; .
wrong even to rave itself from destruction by,
misting those who seik, its Overthrow and utters
ruin! We can understand bow the guilty
should resort to such shifts to screen themseliws
from deserved punishment ; , but.lovitta ban a
friend of peace and order, or anynnut , of sense;
connive for one moment at such wretched; des`- `
perate sophistry I': On this principle there can
be no real government anywhere.' If transgres
sors have a right to disobey, and ruleni arelorcmg
in executing upon-them the penalties which the
laws prescribe, then all government, whether,
among men, or in, any part of GoWs dominions,
must be a sheer nullity, a figment and a farce.
We marvel, much that any man in. his senses
should charge upon our government, and its
loyal supporters, the blame of the conflict now
raging among us. What have they done, or
attempted to do ? Just what the constitution
and laws.prescribe for the suppression and pun-
ishment of rebellion. Is this wrong ? Then all
government is wrong, and God himself an Al
mighty tyrant for not letting the devil and his:
allies have their own:way with imprinitY. Our
rulers may not be wise in every measure ; but,
constituted as all governments now are, they'
could not tln essentially otherwise than they
have done, without betraying their trust. The
question was, whether the government, or the
rebels banded for its overthrow, should rule
and on this issue, our rulers were allowed no
choice, but were compelled, if not arrant knaves,
or equally arrant cowards, to meet and crush
the rebellion, or perish In the . attempt.
Here, then, is our conclusion. :War in every
form we abhor as unchristian ; but our princi
plespf peace were never.meant to ,rne t her. ' our
sense of justice, or teniPiiiii either to apologize
for crime, or refuse assent to , its condign pun
ishment. Peace with us dOes net . mean covert
- rebellion ; nor can government, in our . view of
its legitimate province and functions, ever lead
to any violence =apt. what may be necessarily
involved in a proper, indispensable execution
of its laws. Such enforcement oflaw ought not
to be Called war, nor be allowed to share, any
of the moral elementa that belong to war.
THE FUTURE OF Tfl YOUNG SOLDIER.
There is no profession so faseinating as that of
a soldier, and whatever may be'the position of a
recruit, he has ids merit in Mk own handS, and
Ids success depeads , alone on' his - own 'effort.
The discipline of the army is stern and rigenikiii.'
It leaves no point open for discusSion, affords
I no opportunities for escape, and will listen' to,
no excuse for • deriliction in duty or f4terlilk in
service.. The new recruit learns thismuch in a
day—the young officer feels It .in an hour—
while an entire army, imbued with this incen
tive, becomes enthusiastic even in the rentine of
every day's duty, and looks upon any man who
fails in its performance, whether he is before a
foe in the field, or resting securely in camp as
a recreant and A - coward., Appreciating this
stern exaction of duty in the service, the Secre
tary of War has matured and adopted a system
by which even'the most rigorous discipline.will
invite 'the emulation of the faithful and the
brave, make the army a department of noble
rivalry, in which' the highest' powers of men
Will be brought cOiateit, in Which, too, the
noblest qualities of. rowess and chivalry.will be
elevated and improved.. In this , manner, 'the
Secretary of. War has left the destinY of the
humbleet soldier in the ranks at his ova pe r
sonal &pawl. If he is true to his trust and his
country, the government of that country offers
him the prbudest &extinctions. NotinriOons,

army, the soldier who does his simple duty,
wins the confidence and respect of his superior,
and as that superior does his duty and main

reward is thb improvement of his command,

Taken altogether, the soldier in the federal

fighting to elevate any man to power, but he is
struggling to maintain his oven position as a
free man in a free country. He is not risking
his life to perpetuate the reign of an aristocracy

not bear arms for conquest, to gild the name of

strife belongs to other lands and slaves who fear
the power of a tyrant. With us it is not con

The Fight at Belmont.
THE FEDERAL VICTORY COMPLETE.
The Killed, Wounded and Missing.
BELMONT ABANDONED BY THE REBELS.
Cumwo, Nov. 9
[Special Dispatch to the Times.]
Oento, Nov. 9.—lt is impossible yet to obtain
anything like an accurate report of the killed,
wounded and missing in the engagement at
Belmont on the 7th. It is estimated that
twenty-five of the Twenty-second Illinois regi
ment are migsing, and it is thought three hun
dred and fifty are missing of the Seventh
lowa. Col. Lamans is wounded—not danger
ous; Lieut. Col. Wendell, killed; Major missinz
Adjutant missing, and reportecHtilled
gala_ Eegiutentrtiiiililve killed and forty
seven wounded. All but forty-four of Colonel
Foukti's regiment answered to the roll call yes
terday afternoon. Loss in Buford's regiment
not ascertained, but is supposed not heavy. In
Taylor's artillery only three slightly wounded.
One hundred and thirty-four prisoners were
taken. All accounts concur in placing the loss
of the! nemy much - heavier than ours.
No reliable news has been received from Col.
Ogilvie's command. It is rumored that he had
encountered Jeff. Thompson:B forces, killing
three hundred and losing fifty.
Belmont has been abandoned by the rebels.
They have one hundred and fifty prisoners, and
acknowledge three hundred and fifty killed, but
would not permit the federal officers, who went
to Columbus with a flag of truce yesterday, to
visit the place to which they conveyed their

ed from Cairo to Head Quarters here that our
victory at Belmont was complete. We captured
one hpndred and thirty prisoners and all the
rebel artillery, but were obliged to hews part
of the guns behind for the want of horses to
haul them away. Some of the prisoners report
hat a large force was preparing to start to re
inforce Gen. Price, but this attack will no doubt
prevent it. Our loss was about two hundred
and fifty, and of this number about one half
were killed or mortally wounded.
Official Account of the Battle at
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9
The War Department has received an official
talegramconcerning the battle at Belmont, Mo.,
which generally confirms the newspaper state
inents. It says that Capt. Bieloski of Geoeral
•McOlernand's staff was killed, and among other
fokitiCulars,' we fought all the way into the
enemy's camp immediately under the guns of
Columbus, spiked two guns and brought away
two together with 200 prisoners. The federal
loss is stated at 800, and that of the enemy be
ing much 'wavier. The government has no
authentic inf4puition that the rebels are weak
eeink•their foes in the lower Potomac.

The Rebels Shelled out of the Woods.
FORTRESS Mono; Nov. 8. t
A flag of trace was sent to Norfolk this morn
ing but brought bock no passengers and no
news of the fleet.
Yesterday the 11. S. gun boat Resolute went
up the Rappahannock river as far as Urbanna
creek, and off the mouth of this creek she cap
tured a large schooner. She took off all her
stores and movable property and then burnt the
vessel to the water's edge. The Rescue w as
fired upon from a masked battery on the shore.
The fire was returned and the rebels completely
shelled ont. The commander of the Resolute
was occupied the entire day in shelling every
spot where there were indications of the pres
ence of rebel troops.
Subsequently a small boat was seen crossing
the river with three men. The Rescue's boat
was sent in pursuit and captured the boat with
two of the men, but the third managed to es
cape by wading ashore with &big of letters. The
gun-boats Rescue and Bainbridge were to make
another visit to the 'Rappahannock to-day and
shell the woods where the ranee force is sup
pceed to be.

FREMONT'S ARRIVAL IN ST, Loft
A TORCHLIGHT PROCESSION,
The Effects of Fremont's Removal
THE RESIGNING OFFICERS CHANGE
THE ENEMY STILL RETREATING.
NO PROSPECT OF A BATTLE.
General Hunter Proceeding Quietly
Gen. Fremont arrived here in a special train
this evening, and was met at the depot by an
enthusiastic crowd of citizens. La: ge delega
tions of Germans, from the various wards of the
city escorted the General to his quarters in a
SiamovrELD, Mo., Nov. s.—[Despatch to . the
St. Louis Demoarat] —General Hunter has not
yet put into effect any decided measures for the
conduct of the campaign, but. I am informed
that he will adopt plans entirely different from
those of Fremont.
Col. Merrill was sent out on a reconnoissance
yesterday with one hundred and forty cavalry
and a section of artillery. Ho examined the
country around Wilson's creek, but discovered
no signs of the enemy—their advanced guard
having left for the South on Sunday morning.
The main body of the rebels is supposed to be
in the vicinity of Caasville.
Gen. Hunter has little ' faith, at present, in
their having a design of attacking us. He will,
however, in a few days, have such reliable in
formation of their numbers, position, &c , Its to
decide as to future action.
The troops are now apparently as enthusiastic
as ever, and the more they learn of their new
commander the better they are satisfied with
him. This opinion is also strengthened by the
high opinion entertained of General Hunter by
all the old regular army officers.
The reports that the officers of many compa
nies and their commands threw down their arms
upon the announcement of the removal of Gen.
Fremont cannot be traced to any reliable source.
General Hunter's position on the contraband
question is understood to be as follows :
An negroes coming into camp will be retain
ed, and such of them as are proved to be the
property of Union men will be duly appraised
and receipted for, to be paid when and how
Congress may see fit.
Gen. Asboth has concluded to remain in coin
mend of his division.
Cul. Albert, acting Brigadier General, will
also remain, and several other valuable foreign
officers, who, at first, decided not to remain.
Marcus J Parrott, of Kansas, has been ap
pointed on Gen. Hunter's staff.
The cannonading at S'arooxie, some days
since, is said to have been a salute paid in honor
of some act passed by the rebel legislature,
sembled at that place.
According to information received by Gen.
Hunter, it is now said that Gen. Price has no
intention of attacking us, and tl pursued
further by us he will scatter his a rmor retreat
to Port Smith, Ark., and await developments
on the Potomac and in Kentucky.
It is very doubtful whether any further ad
vance of the main body of our army will be
made, but further intelligence of the numbers,
position and designs of the rebels, may change
Gen. Sigel has been appointed commandant at
Gen. Hunter spent a part of yesterday in

and several companies of ,cavalxy. .
