PREGNANT WORDS.
In his reply' to the address of Count Piper,
the Minister Resident of Sweden and Norway
at Washington, the President said : This noun
try maintains, and means to maintain, the rights
of human nature and the capacity of man for
self-government." "Words are things" in
Ikkefle days , . : as in all great crises in history ; and
we arc,glad tq hear once more a phrase which
was a-Witchward in our revolutloneity struggle,
bat which has been little if at all used since in
public addressee. ' It was for "the rights of
human nature" that Franklin, Jefferson, Weill
ington, Adams, all the patriots of '76 belleveyt
themselves to be struggling. It was the lofty
a }c,
and unselfish faith that they were doing d
suffering, not for their own petty welfare, b t
for the interest of all mankind—that their ca
was the cause of humanity, anti its triumph e
triumph of "the rights of the human race, '—
that upheld them in all their distresses. e,
too, are "maintaining the rights of human ,na
t
tura" against men who despise labor, hate 'l3-
erty, and openly rely for success upon the p
tations they can hold out to the selflshn of
foreign nations . The cause for which we ht
to-day is the cause for which our forefathers
fought in 1776, "the rights of human nat4re."
Tire Clarram. Puss, following the exianple
of a few journals in this state, whose controllers
are either politically demented or personally cor
rupt, has managed so utterly to mismiresent
the facts in the report gf Adjutant General
Thomas on the Fremont case, that we are at a
lost to account any other way for the misrepre
sentation than by the influences which have
mislead other journalists on the same question.
That report, as the Preto should and does know,
was made by one of the highest officers in the
United States army, one who expects to remain in
the service after this administration has ended its
greatiabors, and relieved from power at the time
prwribed by the Constittition, and who from his
pcadtion as a soldier and reputation as a man, can
not justly be charged either with miarepresenta
llon or prejudice in making his report. The
country understands this fact, however much a
few of the more malignant of the enemies of the
Seoretary of War may attempt to mistate thecir
cumstanoas, while the candidreadera of the report
cannot`fail to be amused at the attempted
representatios of those who, like the Central
Press, seek to create a mean impression by
an insinuation, when a word of truth and frank
ness would establish the justice of the adminis
tration in Its relations to-ado- Fremont.
Truth and j ua tw,at demand that the report
of Adj u t t o.enneral Thomas should be suffered
unassailed by irresponsible men, un
til its main and clear statements are disproved
by the party it charges with incompetency, in
subordination and fraud. When this is done it
will be time sufficient to beat about the bushes
for °septet! to assail a man whose noblest ener
gies and ripest years are being freely and de
votedly given to their country, and who, since
he has bben st-the head of the War Department,
has won the approval of veterans, warriors and
virtuous citizens in all the loyal states.

Cannot fail to result in benefit to the country.
He arrived in this city on Saturday, accompa

POLITICS AND OUR POLITICAL OPPO-
NENTS
Since the inauguration of the present Chief
Magistrate of the United States, the great Re
publican party of this country has had two sub
tle enemies with which to contend. Our first
and moot malignant foes were and still are those
who now battle that they mardeetroy all that
is free and glorious in our present perfect system
of government. The southern rebel has always
been an enemy to the progress and development
of free institutions, whether the development
was made by the acquisition of new territory, or
'by such legislation as, in their judgment, inter
fered ylth any of the franchises and prospects of
slavery. This legislation consisted of all at
tempts to advance the interests of free white
labor. When these were made by any party,
the effort aroused the. antagonism of the slave
holders of the south, and raised up a party in
that locality which voted unanimously against
such a policy. No betterillustration of the truth
of this assertion need be adduced than that which
is contained in the history of the great Whig
party, renowned alike for the patriotism of its
leaders =lithe justice of its policies, but because
it proclaimed steadily for the rights of white la
bor, and refused to recognize slavery as an ele
ment of control in •this government, it
invoked the bitter hatred of those who
deemed that institution the true condition
of all labor, and was broken up by
the same influences,-treachery and damnable
corruption which now seek the breaking up of
the"Ameriean Union. Theneit foes were those
who, in the north, sought to make this war a
purely political struggle. These men are the
natural allies of the traitors. Their part of „ the
game in the programme of rebellion was as well
understood as is that of the leading and most
desperate ariaaains in the revolt. That, when
defeat overtook a rotten Democratic organiza
tion, the slave-breeder had arranged to revolt,
and when rebellion had gathered sufficient
strength, its 'old ally in the north was sworn to
cripple the "legitimate government in all its ef
forts
to suppress rebellion, by charging on that
government a onside, by denouncing its legal
efforts to enforce the law as coercion, by corrupt
ing the Executive Departments by means of
espionage, and diminishing the power and in
fluence of both the army and the navy by fe
signations, extravagances and theft. These in
fluences against which the Republican party
when in power was forced to contend, all grew
out of the old Democratic organisation. That
secession was a natural malt of the compacts
of Democracy, because those compacts were all
for the benefit of slavery, and when they failed
of their purpose, slavery refused longer to be
identified with a government it could not con
trol. And that failure dated from the defeat of
the Democratic party. When that organisation
lost power, slavery lost ,prestige—when the
Democratic Tarty showed the unmistakable
signs of decay, slavery was foroed to assume
some extraordinary position either of belliger
ence or assurance, or yield to the force of its
own corruptions, and go down with the Demo
cratic party into irretrievable ruin and disgrace.
And it has assumed that belligerence, while
these facts constitute the condition of politics
when the Republican party assumed its rightful
• • - - swarmainzaw - lam --
government, in its hands, was pledged by all
honorable and sacred means, to be administered
in a spirit of truth and fairness, but the pledge
was repudiated, the terms of peace and justice
whiCh were proclaimed in the inaugural, were
rejected—and even that which was proposed by
the people of the border states was trampled
into the dust, reviled and denounced by the
arch traitors who sat in that assemblage, and
rebellion made the issue on which the Union
was to be destroyed or preserved.
With such a condition of politics, the foes we
have before us have not been diminished either
in number or power. They have rather gained
strength and savage barbarity, so that the war
which the Democratic party at first sought to
make a political crusade, has become a sec
tional assault of the slave owners of the south
against the great free white laboring masses of
the north. It is no longer; a contest to hu
miliate the Republican party and force a Repub
lican President to resign. It is a regularly or
ganized and desperately determined scheme to
crush out all the inteligence and independence
of the free states, force its labor into a servile
acknowledgment of slavery as its superior, and
make the, federal government the machinery
for the propagation of that ptitution through
out the entire Union. Any man who has nb
served the progress of this rebellion, will at
once admit that this is its present object ; and
any man who can fairly comprehend the nature
of cause and effect, will admit that this tarn of
the rebellion is to be attributed alone to the
course of those Democrats in the north who
Tanta in giving aid and encouragement to
treason in the south. We make the assertion
boldly and frankly. If• the north had been
united, when rebellion first developed itself at
' Chasleston, it would tame never spread beyond
South Carolina. And is the Democratic party
took issue with the federal administration as to
the means for its suppression, that party is not
only responsible for the cause of this rebellion,
but it is alike responsible for all its present and
future effects upon the government of this
country. Such, at least, is our reasoning from
politics and our political opponents.
RUN grow old rapidly in such times as these.
Our intense life wears heavily upon bone and
flesh and muscle. Measured by sensations and
experience, we have lived a generation since
Fort Sumter was bombarded. Even Bull's Run
seems half an age ago. We have to stop and
think when we read the words "Big Bethel"
and "Laurel Hill" and "Phillippa." The
Buchanan Administration seems a hotror of a
former era. We have almost forgotten the
death of Douglas, profound as was the sensa
tion which his death caused.
How events rush on l ,The Rebellion is not
a year old and what a page has been added to
the World's history! A Republic of thirty mil
lions of souls plunged into Civil War; eleyen
states revolted from the Fedetal 'Union with
three others trembling in the ballance ; seven
hundred thousand soldiers in the field ; a fleet
larger than the Spanish Armada swooping down
um the southern coast ; whole states trampled

General M'Call's Reconnoissance to
Drainsville.
lAMB ON HON EDWARD WpingtrAnir, H. 0, PROM
FINNSTLVANLi.
The writer of the following has requoted its
publication in the columns of the MUMMA PH.
His well known reputation as a man of strict
veracity and honor, gives to his statement a
force whichneeds no additional recommendation
at our hands :
MEADQUAIITSBS MCCALL'S Division,
Camp Pierprmt, (Langley,) Nov. 8, 1861,
lb the Editor of the New York Tribune:
Gen. McCall's reconnoisance to Drainesville,
1l miles from this point, on the Georgetown
and Leesburg turnpike, has been strangely mis
understood, its purpose misstated, and its re
sults misapprehended. This is due to several
causes, chief of which axe its supposed connec
tion with the affair at Ball's Bluff, and the refer
ence to itmade in the report of Brig. General
Stone. As the facts concerning it have-not been
fully and correctly stated; and- its rations to
the deplorable affair on the Upper Poteinac are
not clearly comprehended, and asgreatinjustice
has thereby been done to the corps which made
the reconnoikeace, and to its commanding Gen
eral, I deenilt proper to call public attention to
the actual state of the ante—selecting as the
basis of remark portions of the criticism of
" G. W." in the Tribune of November 5, on
General Stone's movements.
The movement of Gen. McCall on Sitturday,„
Oct. 19, towards Drainesville was simply a re
connoissance, was so intended, at no time
changed its pharacter. Its purpose was to make
an accurate examination of the country hativelf
Langley and Dnifiremille, and of that around
. Draniesville within three or font
whole force was a Marching, drill. One .e*
only advanced to Drainesville, and proteeted
that reamnoisance, the others bivoucieg at fix
ed points on the road. Your correspondent
says that Gen. MeCall was instructed to advance
'as far as Goose Creek if neePßeary for his "ob
servations." This is a mistake. No purpose
was expressed, in any official quarter, of send
ing the division or any part of it, as far as
Goose Creek for "observations" or any other
object; nor was there mention or allusiun' to
such a contingency in his instructions. The
reconnoissance was expressly limited to
Drainesville and its immediate vicinity, and had
no significance towards points beyond. '
Another error is the statement that ivon
reaching Drainesville Gen. McCall apprised.
Gen. McClellan that "there were indications, of
the enemy being in considerable numbers in the
direction of Leesburg." Nothing could be inore
erroneous. Gen. McCall did not meet thelene
my between Langley and Drainesville, nor at
Drainesville (thirteen miles from Leesburg) did
he discover any indications of the "presence of
the enemy
- in considerable numbers agesburg." He did not expect to do either. Before
leaving camp at Langley he was advised that.
the enemy had retired from Leesburg ; and on
his arrival at Drainesville this information. was
corroborated by the residents of the place and
vicinity, who stated that on the evening pre
vious (five days before) Gen. Evans' brigade had
crossed Goose Creek on their way to Manassas.
' Gent McCall's dispatches to the Commanding
General were of a tenor wholly different from
that Stated by your correspondent of November
b. They were to the effect that the enemy were
not supposed to he at Leesburg ; that the Lou
doun and Hampshire Railroad was probably the
line of the enemy's pickets in a southwesterly
direction, and that the nearest force of the ene
my was at Centreville, sixteen miles distint.
Whatever attempt may be made to censure any
one upon the assumption that Gen. McCall
made any representations different from those
above stated, will be in defiance of the facts.
A thinimisappreiehaion of your correspondent
of Nov. 5. is, that Gen. McCall's return to Lang
ley on Monday, October 21
}danger—"Ng& I Wk , m
uentervWe ; this order'to return, in
reversal of a previously-entertained purpose,
was given at a late hour on the afternoon of
Sunday, the 20th. The original order of Gen.
McCall contemplated his return to Langley on
Sunday, the 20th. This, ; however, proved in
compatible With the execution of the other por
ticin of his order,
to make a survey of the coun
try, its roads, declivities, &c.; and he so inform
ed Gen. McClellan, who thereuPon ordered him
to'complete the survey and return on Monday.
At 6 'o'clock on Monday morning Gen. McCall
was informed by the topographical engineers
that in two hours they would complete their
work ; and Gen. McClellan, upon being so ad
vised, ordered him to return to Langley when
this was done. About 10 o'clock that morning
the Division took up the return line of march.
Of course, the apprehension of attack upon Cen
terville had nothing to do with the return,
which was due solely to the fact that by that
time the reconnoissance required by his instruc
tions was completed, fully and satisfactorily.
Your correspondent treats of the two move
ments of Gens. McCall and Stone as one, and
speaks of "the division of McCall moving from
the mene t " while Stone - "was, grouping hie forces
at Conrad's and Edwards' ferries.
Gen: McCall remained at Drainesville one
day longer than he expected when he entered
it.' He left it only when ordered to do so, and
after the work appointed to him was fully done.
He knew nothing of Gen. Stone's movement or
situation, nor did he hear of them until many
hours after his , return to Langley. Had the
division been aware of the collision between a
part of Gen. Stone's command and the enemy, I
know that nothing would have restrained them
from advancing to his support with alacrity and
ardor.
My respect for a gallant and veteran officer
has led me to make these explanations concern
ing events with which my position in his staff,
as a volunteer aid, has made me fully familiar.
I feel assured that you will aid me in correct
ing the unintentional errors which do him in
justice; and reflect injuriously upon the brave
men composing his command.
I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your
obedient servant.

Tus PACiIIIO TEVICIRAPH.—The story of the
Pacific telegraph, from its inception to the com
pletion is a strange and a novel narrative. The
whole line was laid in four months, the material
having been previously collected. The comple
tion of this line gives courage to. those who look
for its extension northward and .westv ar it nto
Asia tic Russia. Mr..P. McCollins, who has al
ready memorialized Congress on the subject of
a San Francisco and Amoor river telegraph line,
has renewed hopes of success in his enterprise.
The Pacific telegraph is two thousand piles
long ; Mr. Collins' line would reach five thou
sand miles. He thinks it could be built for
three hundred dollars per mile, and that after a
prelinainpxy survey of the route, which would
require one year, the whole line could be put up
in twoyears. The Russian government is rapidly
completing a line from St. Petersburgh to the
Anioor, which it expects to have in operation
in 1864. It is- already working for two thou
sand five hundred miles. to Omsk, in Siberia.
Mr. Collins asks Congress to lend him two small
vessels and $50,000 for a preliminary survey o f
the route, by way of Behring's Straits, and to
grant a certain annual subsidy to any company
who would construct and work the line within
a certain period. The Russian government
will join ours in the survey of the rod* and
would makeimportant concessions to a company
undertaking to maintAin the line in operation.
From his knowledge of the ground and of. the
Indium who occupy it, and who are already
traders Mr. Collins does not anticipate very se ;
riots difficulties in either the construction or
the Maintenance of a great inter-continental

The steamer Spaulding arrived from Hatteras

A deserter who reached the inlet in a small
boat stated that news had been received at
the main land of the taking of the Confederate
forts at Port Royal and the landing of a large
Federal force. Beaufort had also been taken
by our troops.
No particulars have arrived, but the Main
fact corresponds with-news received a few hours
since from Forfolk by a flag of truce.
Great excitement prevailed on the arrival of
the news at Norfolk.
From the same source we have a rumor that
the Railroad above Beaufort has fallen into the
possession of our troops with an immense
amount of stores. -
Five deserters, who reached Newport News
tbis morning, state that the rebels above James'
river are in consternation, and also brings an
improbable rumor that our troops hid advanced
up the railroad as far es Charleston. '
The French frigate Calabria was burnt to the
water's edge on Friday night off Hatteras. All
the hands were saved. She just arrived from
the blockade off Beaufort, N. C.
. The captain of the United States gun-boat
Alabatross reports that he discovered the Union
ashore on the 6th inst., about eight miles to the
eastward of Bague Inlet, but in consequence of
the heavy weather had no communication with
the shorenntil the following day when he lat►ded
with a flag of truce, and learned from the Cap
tain of a Confederate company the following
The Union went ashore, or rather was run
ashore, in a sinking condition, on the first inst.,
and soon after broke in two in front of the
smoke stack. The crew, 73 in number, and 15
horses were saved. The men are prisoners at
Fort Macon, Raleigh, N. C.
A large quantity of stores was seen piled up
up on the beach at the time of the disaster. •
The Winfield Scott was in company with the
Union, and Captain Latter expressed the opinion
Unit his consort was lost, she having suddenly
disappeared.
Nothing is known concerning the rumored
loss of the "Ocean Express. There are rumors
of three Federal vessels having gone ashore.

The Town of Beaufort Burned,

BA.LITHona, Nov. 11
An officer of the Twentieth Indiana regiment
who came from Hatteras Inlet and arrived here
in the Old Point boat says he had a long con
versation with a party who brought the news
of the capture of Beaufort to Hatteras. He was
not a deserter, but a private citizen and a man
of considerable intelligence, who' had, crossed
the sound at risk of life to bring the news to
the federal troops. The officer's report of the
conversation corresponds precisely with what
had already been sent. Outside of this state
mentthere is a report that in taking Beaufort
a large part of the town was burned.
Dispatches for the Government.
Passengers by the Old Point boat report that
a steamer came in the capes last evening and
continued up to the bay without stopping at
Fortress Monroe. It was thought to be the
simmer Vanderbilt with dispatches from the
fleet to Annapolis for transportation to Wash
ington. Her arrival at Annapolis has not been
announced.
The Bombardment of Charleston
Discredited..
BAST/YORE, Nev. 11.-1 o'clock P. M
The rumored bombardment of Charleston is
not credited. Nothing has been received here
by the Old Point boat to warrant it, except an
outside report that at the last accounts our
troops had advanced to within twelve miles of
Charleston.
NC intelligence has, been received from An_
