Tuesday Afternoon, January 28, 1862.
The news which we publish to-day,and which at
first will appear disastrous and disheartening, is
not so bad in reality, and we are confident that
further accounts from the Expedition will revive
the confidence of the American people in the
ultimate success of that magnificent military
undertaking. Gen. Burnside is a cool, discreet,
able and indomitable officer, in whom the
country can confide with a faith that is worthy
these virtues, and we are certain that the Expe-
dition will yet accomplish all the good for
which it was devised and constructed. We
must expect disasters when the aroused ele
ments cross our path—but from the rebels, when
in a fair contest, we must never look for defeat•
After an army of more than half a million
men has been recruited; its organization accom
plished, its discipline, arming, subsistence and
quartering provided for, it becomes the sacred
duty of the American people calmly to con
template the result, and behold the immense
labor necessarily attending these efforts. When
the signal of rebellion rang from one plantation
to another, and every slave driver in the south
armed for the contest, the loyal people of the
land little imagined that the emute then would
assume the dreadful proportions of the rebel
lion now. As commonwealth after common
wealth asserted their mad independence and
arrayed their citizens in the ranks of treason
those best acquainted with the southern peo
ple least imagined that the rebellion would
ever pass beyond the resolves of state legisla
tures or the threats of disappointed southern
politicians. The entire free states were lulled
to repose on this faith, strengthened as they
were in the consciousness of numerical superior
ity, force of population and wonderful prosperity_
and progress. After all these facts, after our
flag was insulted in rebel territory, after it was
betrayed by those sworn in its defence, after It
suffsred insult, assault and contumely, the
country suddenly awoke to the dreadful neces
sity of meeting a foe armed with a portion of
that country's own resources, stealthily pos
sessed of its forts and arsenals, traitorously
and truthfully boasting in its ranks the
skill and experience of the army, and the
daring and valor of the navy. After all these
dreadful facts were forced upon the conviction
of the people—the nation almost aghast with
the stupendousness of the rebellion which
threatened its extinction—and the government
appalled with the magnitude of the responsi
bility thus suddenly forced upon it—after all
these occurrences and startling events, then it
was that but one Department of the entire go
vernment was looked to for succor and defence.
We did not need diplomacy, and therefore the
able head of the State Department could fold
his arms and quietly contemplate the wild scene
by which the administration was surrounded.
• We did not need fmanciering then, because the
labor must be performed before the laborer
need be remunerated for his services. We
needed an army, and the material for that ar
my, though amply sufficient for all purposes,
was yet rough, wild and undisciplined. We
require I the resources to equip and subsist that
force ; and these were offered—but above all
these we needed a calm head and a stern hand
to direct, control and fashion this mass of
men and over-abundance of resources. This
was accomplished—accomplished, too, while
the nation was yet struggling in the grasp
of rebellion. And now that our innumer
able armies attest the spirit of the loyal
people of the land, when the bugle notes
of our cavalry are heard wherever there is a foe
to meet them, and the revile and tatto resound
along the entire border of rebellion or send
their shrill notes through the very heart of
treason—after all this herculean development
of resource and wonderful power of discipline,
let us not forget the man who grasped the helm
of the War Department when it was doubtful
whether a dozen officers in the American army
were devoted to the American Union. Vial
Men Awas SIMON CAMERON. Whoever may reap
the glory of victory , when battle achieves that
result, and whoever may be in authority
when peace is once more restored to the land,
the people will have cause to remember the
Secretary of War who welcomed the first sol
diers that arrived for the defence of the Amer
ican capital—and in them and in him the deeds
and the glory of the present great struggle will
both be concentrated as the historian records
the bloody transactions of the present, as well
es the ingratitude of those who would seek the
aspersion of their country's benefactor. The
present, full of uncertainty and dark rebellion,
will give birth to a future full of hope and glory,
_when the faithful public servant, amid the calm
judgment and repost of the American people,
will meet his just reward. It is this felththat
animates the friends of Simon Cameron, as
they renew their devotion to the national ad
ministration, and arouse themselves to an in
creased vigor in the cause of the Union. It is
this that will make their as well as hi s A im
From whatever stand-point we can observe
this body, and however we may respect it as
one of the important branches of the govern
ment, there Is no use denying this fact, that
Congress is far behind the spirit and . energy of
the people, and that it is also shamefully neg
lecting its duty. Discussion seems to be the
standing order of the day, as if words hastily ut
tered in impromptu debates or quietly matured
and cautiously declared for the purpose of man
ufacturing personal reputation, were the eset n
dais to order and discipline in our organiza
tion for defence and preservation, or necessary
to our successful efforts to put down rebellion.
Every thing in Congress is regarded with the
false notion in either branch, that the particu
lar body acting on a certain subject, is abso_
lutely and in fact the possessor of all the pow
er and the controller of the full destiny of the
government. Imbued with this notion, Con
gress is running after the authority of other de
partments and co-ordinate branches of the gov
ernment instead of quietly attending to its own
business, until individual members of both the
Senate and House of Representatives are im
pressed with the egotism that they are cen
sors instead of legislators, military direc
tions instead of legislative projectors.--
The world is beginning to laugh at the
spectacle presented in some of the proceed
ings of Congress, and unless members curb
their passions and their ambition, the country
will next be called on to resist the mad ab
stractions and political follies daily originating
and transpiring in Congress, with the same
resolution with which the people are now re
pelling rebellion.
Congress should work more and talk less,
while individual members would win a nobler
fame in silence, than they are earning by a
constant exhibition of their collaquial powers
It would be a fortunate resolve for the country
if a parliamentary rale were adopted restricting
debate to the committees where acts of legisla
tion originate, and forbidding any member
from making more than one speech during a
Congress. The country would be the gainer
in time, legislation, exemption from nonsense,
the shame of ridicule and the suspense of delay.
We have repeatedly alleged that the object of
the slaveholder's rebellion was the organization
of an aristocratic class by the establishment of
exclusive political privileges in the south. This
assertion has as often provoked the old political
allies of the southern slave breeding rebels, as
it has been the means of assisting to place the
issues of the rebellion in their proper light be
fore the people of Pennsylvania. Since our as
sertions on this subject, the debates in Congress
have elicited some strange sentiments both in
favor of and against the assumptions of the
slave master in the rebellion he has so wickedly
precipitated. Among the most profound and
truthful of all those who have spoken on this
subject, is the speech of Senator Davis, from
Kentucky, who, while he claims to be loyal, is
also one of the most tenacious defenders of
slavery in Congress. And
_yet Senator Davis
does not hesitate to make this candid ad-
mission :
"The cotton states, by their slaves, have
amassed fortunes, and many of their planters
have princely revenues—from fifty to one hun
dred thousand dollars a year. This wealth has
begot pride, and insolence and ambition, and
these points of the southern character have
been displayed most insultingly in the halls of
Congress. I admit it all. But in these southern
states, and among these planters, are some of
the truest gentlemen, in the highest sense of
the word, that I have ever known, and some
of the purest patriots. I admit, however, that,
as a class, the wealthy cotton growers are in
solent ; they are proud ; they are domineering ;
they are ambitious. They have monopolized
the government in its honors for forty or fifty
years, with few interruptions. When they saw
the sceptre about to depart from them in the
election of Lincoln, sooner than give up office,
in their mad and wicked ambition they deter
mined to disrupt the old Confederation and to
erect a new one, where they would have undis
puted power."
The discussion which ILts been elicited on
the subject of the alleged treason, or complicity
with treason, of Jesse D. Bright, a United
States Senator from Indiana, has had but one
influence among the loyal people of the coun
try. There is no question among the people
as to Bright's inclination to betray his country
—no doubt of his purpose to aid rebellion.—
Therefore, the special pleadings of a certain
coterie of Senators in behalf of Bright can effect
only the popularity of these gentlemen, with
out doing Bright any service ; and on this ac
count we would remind those who still possess
the loyal esteem and respect of their constitu
ents, to beware how they trifle with these sen
timents in their connection with this case.—
Those who touch pitch are defiled.
THE LONDON Trims says that the British gov
ernment would have done as much to rescue
two negroes as it did to release Mason and Sli-
dell, after they had been taken from an English
mail steamer. The same journal also protests
against any extravagant welcome being extend
ed to the released traitor envoys on their ap
pearance in England. All this is a backing
down on the part of the Thunderer, as the let
ter of Secretary Seward produced a greatohange
of opinion among the English masses, so that

to change also, or loose its accustomed share of
Con. H. C. LONGNECHRR, appointed to the
command of the Twenty-third Pennsylvania
regiment, is one of the bravest and most ac
complished gentlemen in the country, and we
rejoice sincerely that he has once more been
placed in a position where active duty will af
ford him the opportunity of doing gallant ser
vice to his country. Col. Birney, who organ
ized this regiment, has deservedly been promo
ted to the position of Brigadier General.

due to the Hon. H. L. Dieffenbach, to whom
you somewhat tartly referred, in last Saturday's
issue of the Telegraph, to say that he was not a
candidate for State Treasurer. This is due to
common justice. I nominated him in caucus,
without his knowledge, and as I have good rea
son to know, against his approbabation.

Col, Allen and Surgeon Miller drowned
Portions of the Fleet Gradually Arriving

The Rebels Frightened and will not make
By the arrival of the steamer Eastern State
we have the first direct and official intelligence
of the arrival of the Burnside expedition at its
The Eastern State lett Hatteras Inlet last
night and arrived here late this afternoon. The
recent storms were unusually severe at Hatteras
and considerably delayed and crippled the ex
pedition, but when the Eastern State left every
thing looked favorable.
The expedition sailed from Hampton Roads
on the 11th and 12th insts., and consisted of
over one hundred and twenty-five vessels of all
classes. It arrived at Hatteras between the
12th and 17th, having been greatly retarded by
the severe storms and adverse winds, which
prevailed about that time. After their arrival,
they experienced a series of storms of such un
paralleled severity that for two days in succes
sion, on more than one occasion, it was impos
sible to hold communication between any two
vessels of the fleet.
After the first storm it was discovered that
instead of vessels drawing 8i feet being able CO
go over the swe.l or bars, as Gen. Burnside
had been informed, no vessel drawing over 7
feet 3 inches could pass the outside bar drawing
over 13 feet unless skillfully piloted. Cones

on the outside bar, loaded with a cargo valued
at $200,000, consisting of powder, rifles and
bombe, and proved a total loss. The captain
and crew, after bravely remaining in the rigging
for forty hours, were saved.
The gunboat Zonave dragged her anchors,
stove a hole in her bottom and sunk. Total
loss. Her crew being saved.
The steamer Pocahontas went ashore near
the light house and become a total wreck.
The valuable heroes . belonging to Eistand's
battery were on board and were all drowned,
including several valued at $5OO each.
The Grape Shot parted hawser, and went
down at sea ; crew saved.
An unknown schooner, ladened with oats,
and another schooner, name unknown, and six
of her crew, were also lost on the beach.
The Louisiana struck on the bar, where she
still remains. The report of her having been
burnt is entirely incorrect ; she may get off.
The Eastern Queen, and also the Valtisan,
are ashore. The latter will probably get off.
The water vessels had not reached their des
tination when the Eastern State left, and had
it not been for the condensers on board some
of the vessels, and one on shore, terrible suffer
ing would have occurred. As it was the water
casks were old whiskey, oamphene and Kero
sene oil casks.
It is thought that the Union pilots of Hatter
as proved traitors, having intentionally run
several vessels ashore.
The storm can only be described as terrific.—
The waters in every direction were covered with
foam. Waves dashing, with a clear sweep
across Hatteras shore and completely cutting
off the fort from all outside communication.—
The current was running at the rate of five
miles an hour, and chop seas prevented General
Burnside from answering any signals of distress
or communication ;with his generals. At one
moment the flag would appear union down on
a number of vessels, indicating want of water,
coal or provisions.

Regiment, and hie surgeon, Miller, with a

Mate drowned. The crew of the boat were
Despite ail these adverse circumstances,
General Burnside has succeeded in getting over
the bar one half of his vessels, all the gunboats,
and 9,000 troops.
Everything appeared to be in a satisfactory
condition when the Eastern State left. The
large transports with troops remained outside
of the bar until the arrival of the S. R. Spauld
ing from Port Royal on the third, when Captain
Howes volunteered to bring them all inside.
This was accomplished yesterday afternoon.

night left a portion of the tug boats chartered
by Gen. Burnside for the expedition who re

Gen. Burnside has been indefatiguable, day
and night. He has been at his post, perform

fident of ultimate succesq and has the respect
of every man under his command.
General Burnside left Fortress Monroe on the
Picket, but subsequently took possession of the
Spaulding, which he will occupy as his flag
ship. She will be ust d for taking the remain
ing troops over the bar.
The only troops that have been landed are

Different reports are received at Hatteras from
the surrounding population in relation to the
diaposposition and intentions of the enemy.
Some who come in say they are completely
frightened and will not make a stand. Another
report is that large masses of troops will be
concentrated in the vicinity, and still another
story confirmed by many, is that their exer
tions will be directed chiefly to placing obsta
cles in the way of our progress to Norfolk.
The rebels keep a good look-out for our
movements with their gunboats. Two of them
made their appearance immediately after the
storm, but disappeared when chased.
