Jo= M. Sumavea,
.110 N. .E7YON IL STANTON.
The new Secretary of War minced the port
folio of his department yesterday, and we have
doubt that he will make a popular and ef"-
- &lent officer. Mr. Stanton began the practice
of law in Steubenville, Ohio, having studied in
--Sheoffice of Daniel L. Collier, Esq., now a van
teri.tlitirelt4sll-flf 7 1 ?eliAs retired
troill the profession. Mr. Stanton began to
practice in partnership with Col. George W.
McCook, a brother of Brigadier-General Alex
ander McCook. After a highly success
fql career in Steubenville, he removed 10
Pittsburg, where be soon took high rink at the
bar. He first became well . known as a lawyer
to tile people of this State as counsel in the
celebrated Wheeling bridge case, which was
WO to Philadelphia ten or twelve years ago.
While residing in Pittsburg, Mr. Stanton was
4A . partneishiti with Judge Studer. /few years
lip he moved - to Washington, where he soon
a large and lucrative practice. His
connection with the Government, as
A Attorney-General, during the closing days of
President Buchanan's administration, is well
to the public. Mr. Stanton has
always been a personal and , intimate friend
Of kis piedecessOr, General Cameron at whose
instance he was appointed.
We.understand that General Cameron will
visit his home to-day or to-morrow, but that
hisstay is •necessarily limited. His mission is
ectidertxiof the utmost importance at this
time, and he Will at once embark for Russia.
toNMITTEEE OF LVVESIIGATION.
The senate passed a resolution unanimously
i'estetday, at the instance of Mr. LOWRY, prei-
viding for •the appointment of a committee o
three to investigate the conduct of members
. Lind others In procuring the passage of certain
bills last winter. We are in favor of the most
strict investigation of this subject, but before
such investigations are ordered we would have
preferred to see charges made against three
upon whom and by whom such improper in:
fluences are alleged to have been used. The
mere idea ird passing a preamble and resolu&
Lions, alleging that rumors and allegations , are
In existence, amounts to nothing at all. They
are generally made by Irresponsible persons,
wlio speak from mere rumor. Still as the
Senate has passed a joint resolution on the sub-
Jed., we hope the House will at once concur,
and that the Speakers thereof will appoint the
very best men on the committee to institute
The House has also a separate resolution be
fore it, offered some days since by Mr. HOPKINS,
which has been under discussion for two ses
sions. Committees will no doubt be appointed
on the subject, but we fear that their missions
will be fruitless, and that in the end the State
will be saddled with a heavy bill of expenses.
We have, heard of many investigations, awl as
Aieneral thing, they amount to nothing but a
ustliftis expense to the State. In this case,
„however, we hope that the inquiry will be
ITIRCkiI4, and that the guilty parties will re•
Wive thdr just punishment.

THE BAT2LE IN KENTUCKY.
Our readers have already read the trief ac
count of the recent engagement in Kentucky.
This no doubt is the commencement of the pro
gramme of General McClellan. Somerset, the
county seat of Pulaski county, Kentucky, a
short distance north of Cumberbmd River, has
been the scene of the first conflict of the cam
paign, and the Federal arms are victorious, af
ter a bard fight of aorbole day, with heavy
loss on both sides. May we not augur a bril
liant termination to a campaign thus fortunate
Felix K. Zolliooffer, the commander of the
rebel force, is announced to be killed. This
officer was of German descent, but was born in
Mowry county, Tennessee, May 19, 1812. He
was a printer by trade, and when quite a young
,neirspaper at Parts, Tennes
see, and subsequently published the Columbian
Observer.. In 1835 he was elected State , printer,
.U 4148 ;re-elected in 1837. In .18421 he • re
moved to Nashville and edited the 'Banner.
From 1848 to 1849, he was, Cfrnptroller of. the .
State Treasury. In 1849 hir 'vra'el6tail to the
State Senate. In 1858 he was,eleeted: Coir
fire* and'cOntifined there for' thWe terms, re
tiring in 1859.
After the secession of Tennessee, Zollicoffer
bebarne an active stipporter'of the rebel gov—
ernment, and was, at an early date, made a
Brigadier-General in the rebel army. He has
had command of a• division in Eastern Ken
tucky. 'His first battle was at' CantitWillicat,
where he was ingloriously defeated. , He has
now lost-his life at the greater battle of Som
Baille.Pekton, who was also reported to have
been killed, waa4t . one time a prominenfmezn.
ber of Congress fromhe State of Itilyilappi,
and an ardent advocate of the . Itrito-Nothing
doctrine. After his retirement from Comets&
he removed to Ne%gone, for tbi; Durpotozi of
Parking his profession, that of law. At tbe
outbreak of the present rebellion he hecapean
active and dangerous leader. It appears now
that the Peyton reported to have been killed,
is a son of the rebel Peyton, being Bailie Pey
ton, Jr., and who was in every respect as bitter
a traitor as his father. •
,120n..Bohoepf, whojead.our forces against the
rebels is a Bavarian. by birth, and a military
man by.education. His notions of liberty were
not suitable to his native country, and for this
reason he was obliged .terleftv.e. it. ;in his early
days. After his, arrival, her. he underwent
many hardships, and followed various occupa
tions for. the purpose of obtaining an honest live
lihood.. He joined the army at the commence
ment of the rebellion, and through his , bravi
conduct he was promoted to a generalship. A
day or two since, while conversing with a per
son direct from their camp, he related to us*Le
following joke upon Gen: gohoepf : A few
days before leaving the enemy's camp, the
port was current, and believed by the ofticers
there, that Gen—gchoepf had been all over their
camps in.timA,4 l eguis9 of an alEleßtenhalit
and had actually peddled apples to them, from
rt.beeketon laia arm. - Well, whether the Gene
ral has _been within Abair, lines or not., they
have found that he was pretty familiar with
tliSir deldn6es. " - '
We shall , wait patiently . for a. full account !of
the recent engagement, which we hope to lay
before our readers this afternoon.
GEN, HALLEOK ON NEGRO CATCHING.
By the following order to Gen. Asboth,t it
will be seen that Gen. Halleck it determined
that the soldiers of his depariMent'shail keep
within, the. Constitution and laws, instead of
transcending them to• turn themselves into'
negro catchers. The General is resolved that
his soldiers shall devote themselves to the du
ties of soldiers, and leave the negro police

those who have a taste for it, and who have
undertaken that duty :

eimuta. would seem, from the rep4rt
of Major Waring to you (referr.d to these head
quarters), that he had, in compliance with
your instruction's, delivered to Capt. Holland a
fugitive in ' his camp, claimed' by Capt H. as
the property of his father-in-law.
This is contrary to the intent of General Or
der No. 8. The object of • those orders is ;to
prevent any person in the army from actingiin
the capacity of negro-catcher or negro stealer.
The relation between the'slave and his master
is not a matter to be determined by military
officers, except in the single. case provided for
by Congress. This matter, in all other cases,
must be decided by the civil authorities. Otte
object in keeping fugitive - slaves out of our
camps is to keep clear of all such 'questiona.
Masters; or pretended masters, must establish
the rikhts of property to the negroes as laist
they may, without our assistance or interfer,

either. Don't Duganne see that this is no time

Mr: CONNELL. Mr. Spzurtm, I . &motel&
the death of Herman Yerkee, Sergeantat
of the Senate: •
Intending to, offer a resolution expressive of
our, regret for the death of Mr. Yerkes, I think
it not improper to Preface it with a few remarkS.
There may be no precedent on the journali of
the Senate for observing or noticing the &lath
of an officer of this Chamber. If there be none,
there never can be a more fit occasion for ob
taining one. For myself; lam free to say that in
my opinion; the' decease of-any of the offiders
of a confidential °Wader with whom we
, chosen to -surround ourselves, should cause - ns
tope's - Se, and should demand-at least a
notice. More especially, when= mitre pidient

It ia proper, therefore, to utter a few
truthful words concerning our late sergeant-at
Those Senators who were present at the last
all knew how well and faithfully he
performed his duty. Attentive, strict, cor
teous, yet firm when occasion required, he was
a model officer, whose superior in the line of
his duty never yet occupied that chair, and
never will. Our deceased friend, for as such,
all who knew him, heartily recognised him,
was proud of his position. -, Why f I remember
to have heard falling from your lips, Mr.
SPBAKSII, "It is the measure of no mean
ambition to fill a seat in this chamber." But,
air, no—Senator who ever trod this floor—no
Speaker, who ever filled your highly prized
chair, ° ever iittiod here or there, prouder of his
place than did our dead sergeant-at-armi, when
he grasped that mace in his hands, and in his
eyes the proof that be enjoyed the confidence,
I esteem and friendship of the members of the
Senate of this great Commonwealth. That
was the secret of his desire, to . be here, and I
say it 1.00, was'Pnoinean aminflon."
At the close of the_last session,
he was ten
dered aninnesual itanipliment *r his fidelity,
one perhaps which no other officer of this Sen.
ate ever before received—a letter signed by all
the Senators of his party holding over,qrging
him to return and assuring him of theio-knest
support; and I know well, that those of our
Democratic friends, who were here last winter,
and who know. his wortheregretted that the
unbending rules of party organization denied
them the privilege of joining in the compliment
we recently gaveldm of a re-election, when on
his dying bed.
"He was deeply attested by the kindness of
the Senate," writes one who saw him lately.
Who that knew his own kindneini of heart can
Though helms gone in the fullness of aripe old
age, the lesson that his departure conveys tons
may be but little less striking than if a Senator
had been taken from our midst. This time the
arrow of the fatal archer has fallen by the very
door of oar chamber ; vain is it to suppose that
the next shot may not fall within the charmed
circle of this floor.
The impression that the death of any of our
fellow-men, however near to us, makes upon us
is at moot but brief. So engrossed axe wain the
pursuits of , every day life„that we grow almost
insensible the'certabity of °lit own inevitable
I have read on the enchanting pages of
eastern story, a-tradition of that mighty mon
arch, thei wisest after Solomon who swayed the
destinies of the oldest quarter of the world,

Christian domination the Hely Sepulchre
for the Modem whose wisdom baffled
the valor of the (her de Lecn and scattered
the mail clad crusaders to the four winds.
When he appeared - at the head of his armies,

I trust the brief moment we now devote to , the

a proper influence ; and Tam sure that I but
express the sentiment of the Senate in offering
the. following resolUtion:
