THE UNION-THE , CO*=IMON-AND
THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW.
Wednelidai labining, March 19,'1,
AFTER ARMS, DIPLOMACY.
Jeff. Davis's message to the rebel Congress
was a ory of defipair. He could not have' so
knoWledged the hopelessness of the secession
enterprise in words more clear. He said: -
"I have to communicate that since the mes
sage at the last session of the Provisional Con
gress, events have demonstrated that the govern
ment had attempted more than it had power successfully
to achieve. Hence, in the effort to protect, by our
aims, the whole territory of the Confederate Stain,
seaboard and inlald, we have been so exopsed
as reoently to encounter serious disasters."
The conspirators made a three-fold mistake ;
first overrating their own strength for such a
struggle ; then in underrating that of the Fed•
eral Government against them ; but most of
all, perhaps, at the foundation of both these,
in relying upon the active aid and co-operation
of their allies in the loyal States. To the last,
Davis expressly refers, as their "misplaced con
fidence in those with whom they were lately associa
ted." This confidence proved their snare.
They lead a right to expect ready co-operation
net only in the border Sties, bat in the entire
North. They had sworn friends throughout
the (jee States, and have yet. Those friends
failed them in their hour of trial, not so much
from tinachery as from an utter . Impotence to
stand up fn the face of an overwhelming pub
lic sentiment, that obliterated all old party
linesiand made the only division to be between
the friends of the Union and its foes; between
loyal men and traitors. The, allies of the South
in the.free States, willing, nay zealous as they
are to fulfil their engagements, could do nothing.
But now that these successive defeats of the
rebeleAverywhere, have rendered their military
enterprise hopeless; the" former associates" of
DaviCapdhls coadjutars may prove themseliee
not marsh but serviceable. With the
relinquishment of arms will come the contest
of intkigne'itrid cunning diplomacy.
Were rep, rebel force dispersed--their wea
pons ltid down—the real contest would not be
over. There can be no settlement, or restora
tion, branrconceivable mode, which dbes' not
involire'tiAi. Whenever that point shall . be
reached ; the rebels will , find in the entire North
faithful allies, who did not indeed . take up
arms in their behalf, because they dared not or
could not, bat who will be ready to emPloy all
the politiatil 'machinery within their control,
to give to vanquished traitors terms, conces
sions and iidvantages w hich they would have
asked In vain before their revolt. They are

THE PROPOSED TAX ON NEWSPAPERS.
Our cotemporaries all over the country are
justly indignant with the discrepancies in the
proposed tax on newspapers, when compared
with that levied on other articles of production in
mechanism and industry. Some of our ex
changes declare that about the only articleiin a
printing office which have escaped the scruti
nizing eye of the committee, are editors, re
porters and the printer's imps. They should
have been added to the list by all means. On
the whole, an undue share of taxation is thrown
upon the pram. We do not claim that publish
ers, like reporters at shilling shows, should be
"dead headed" by the government, but we do
protest against newspaper property being taxed
to a greater extent than any other kind. The
proposed taxation would almost crash the news
paper business of the country. It would at
least rob it of of its popular character, and de
stroy it as a cheap medium of conveying prompt
intelligence to the people. Such a tax law
would sweep the country establishments oat of
existencelike a tornado. Country newspapers,
the familiar disseminators of local intelligence,'
and the cheat) and ready means of home advet
tieing, would be squashed under such a taxation.
The city press, np to the wallthieit , and most
Influential jottrnals, would stagger under
blow. Many must necessarily be' consigned
to oblivion, should that rate of taxation.' be:
adopted. The effect of the law, thinefore,
would be to• crush out at' least" two-thitdif
of the newspapere of the country. The
remainder would necessarily be compelled to
materially advance " the price -of the paper,
increase the rates of advertising, reduta side
and withdraw enterprise, to meet the new
Order of things. The newspaper would cease
to be.the'ehtmiP and poPular medium of Intellt-'
gerice,And as in tigl'and, only the wealthy' pee
pie could enjoi the laxury of a daily press.
Just imagine the existence of such a state of
things hi this blessed land. of ' American inde
pendenee. Instead of:every family; having its
own newspapers as now, whole, neighborhoods
would be compelled to subscribe for one paper,
and hold mass meetings to hear the news. In
stead of remaining snugly 'at horrid of au even

Berzotota, March 18
The steamer Commodore arrived this morn

reports 'the 'captute of Newborn, N. 0., and the
defeat of the enemy there, and the capture of
aiarge number of artillery. It was a. hard
fodght battle. Our less at Newborn was about
ninety killed and fotir hundred wounded. Our
men displayed great bravery.
An officer bearing despatches from General
Burnside landed here on the arrival of the
steamer Commodore, and proceeded immedi
ately to Washington.
It is reported that 800 rebel prieoners were
,captured. Some of the reports make our loss
floin 60 to 60 killed, and 260 to 800 wounded.
The fight took place on Friday last. There
are rumors here that one of our Brigadier Gen

From Major Johnson, who was in the fight,
'we gather the following interesting particulars
of the battle:
Our troops, under General Burnside, landed
on Thursday evening near the mouth of Swan
Oriatik, on the west side of the Neuse river, fif
teed miles below Newherh. Owing to the dense
fogii, the naval yeller& did not participate in the
fight. Early on Friday morning the fight com
menced. - Our troops'adianced along the coun
try toad running wenni with the NlitMe river,
-but* mile or two in the rear. lie road was
akirted on the west side by a rillroad and a
itle4e swamp. All along the river side were a
series of batteries, which were "taken by our
troops, one after another, after some bloody
hand to hand contests.
OUr troops were divided Into three brigades,
and 4 the command of Generale Benno, Foster
We advanced gradually, the enemy desert
ing -their guns, until we reached a line of
earth works extending across the road from
the ;liver to a swamp on the west, a distance
of sboae two miles. These" earthwOrks were
very; strong. They were located about two
mill south of Newborn, and between there
and i the city ran the Trent river. The coun
try, xoad and the railroad passed • througn
the 4 works, and crossed into the city by
bridges. In front of these works the rebels
bad frilled a large number of trees, forming an
almcist impenetrable abattis, , Here the flying
rebels were rallied'abd made for a while a des k .
peraie stand. Our brave fellows fought until
all t6err ammunition . Wie kiln* 'When an order
to clotarge bayonets was given, and the works
werelfinally taken at the point of the bayonet.
The enemy fled like frightened sheep, leaving
everything behind them. In, their retreat they
burned the bridges communicating " with - the '
toOn‘ over both the county road and the rail
road: As they had trains of cart lit their rear,
just across the bridges, they were of course able
to carry off their wounded and dead.
The Ittettirar's special says the enemy's works
six miles belovi Newham .were attacked ,on
Friday morninglast. They were defended by
a fore° about ten thousand strong, and having
twenty-one guns'posted behind formidable bat
teries over two miles long. The fight was the
most desperate of the war. Our troops behaved
with . the steadinesiandcourage of veterans, and
after. nearly four hours hard fighting drove the
rebels out of all their positions, captured three
light batteries of field artillery, forty-six heavy
Vete guns, large stores c f fixed ammunition,
three thousand smalk , arms and two hundred
puseriers, including one Colonel, three Captains
and four Lieutenants. • The enemy left a large

ANOTHER ONION VICTORY.
ASCPERIOR FORCE OF RRBELS ROUTED
100 Mai Killed, and a Largo Number o
Prisoners Taken, including Colonels.
Mo., March 18
A short time since, anticipating the rebel
movements in Texas county, Mo., Gen. Halle,ck
ordered five companies of troops and two light
ste.l six pounders, mounted on two wheels,
and drawn by two horses, under Col. Wood,
to repair to that vicinity. Finding no enemy
there Col, Wood pushed on to Salem, Fulton
county, Ark., where be encountered a largely
superior force of rebels, and after a sharp fight
routed them, killing about one hundred and
taking many prisoners. Among the latter are
three Colonels. Our loss was about fifty.
The prisoners taken. by General Curtistat Pea
Ridge are no en route for St. Louis under a
proper guard. The reports that Gen. Curtis is
in 's dangerous position are false. Forage for
cavalry is scarce, but in other reSpects the sit
uation of our troops is cheering. The demoral-
Wit and cripped forces of Price and Van Dorn
are moving south.
MORTALITY IN THE ARMY
NEWS OP THE OAPTTIBt OF NEWBERN
Gen• Burnside's Safety Beyond Question
WASHINGTON, March 18
Many exaggerated statements having been
merle as to the mortality in the army, it is as
certained from official sources that the number
of deaths among the regulars stationed here
for the quarter ending with March, 1861, was
28 ; for quarter ending with Juno, 88 regulars
and 46 volunteers ; for the quarter ending with
SepteMber, 56 regulars and 749 volunteers; for
the quarter ending with December, 108 regulars
and 2,970 volunteers—total, 8,990, of which
100 were from wounds. The above deaths were
in 257 regiments, including those of the army
of the Potomac.
The intelligence, unofficial, received here of
the capture of Newbern, N. 0., after a bard
fought battle, has added to the general joy
especially as it is considered that we have there
by *tired great military advantages and placed
the 'safety of Vurnside beyond question.
