THE UNION-THE CONSTITUTION-AND
THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW.
Monday Afternoon, April 21, 1862.
PIERCE BUTLER AND SIMON CAMERON.
Under tide heading, the New York Sunday
Atlas, (a very bitter and a very uncompromi
sing locofoco journal,) discusses the merits of
the suit which Pierce Butler has brought against
the ex-Secretary of War. In alluding to the
fact4of this arrest, the Atlas thus bitterly avows
its estimate of the transaction :
The arrest of Ex-Secretary Cameron, at Phil
on the eve of his departure for his
Mission to Russia, at the instance of Pierce
Butler, -ono of his Fort Lafayette detenus, has
been the most marked incident of the week,
and even of many months, in its probable in
fluence on the relations to exist between the
United States government and the American
people. No movement of the last half year
has been so threatening, and none has been
made which more imperatively demands that
it should be denounced and frowned down by
the whole American press and people. We
learn from this movement that the "Southern
spmpathyzers" are yet rampant in our midst,
as they were the day before Sumter ; that if
they have lately kept comparatively quiet,they
have done so from prudence and not from de
votion to the interests of the country; and that
they are ready to seize upon any pretext once
more to embarrass the government, aid the
rebel leaders and newspapers in their cry of "a
divided North," and give to governments
abroad an unfavorable view of our prospects
for crushing out the rebellion.
The Atlas, after giving vent to some of its
peculiar vituperation and malignancy entirely
irrelevant to the k,ubject it so ably discusses,
boldly charges Pierce Butler as being the em
bodiment om the 'ld secession feeling. He
strikes, in this instance, not at Simon Cameron,
but at the man who exercised high powers in
crippling the hands of treason ; and through
him he strikes at the government, and at the
right of the government to assume vigorous
measures for the public defence, when the red
hand of rebellion is at its throat. No man fails
to know that what Simon Cameron did in that
direction, was done not from any private pique
against individuals, but for the public defence.
He may have been wrong in his estimation
of individuals, and he may have committed
acts of gross injustice to individuals, proceed
ing, at the moment, on information that seemed
reliable, and that he could not for the country's
sake, stop to examine very closely into, when
a day longer of liberty granted to a suspected
traitor seemed to threaten the very national
existence. No doubt there are many instances
in which a irosecution for damages against the
imprisoning power would lie, though there is
no man silly enough to suppose that General
Cameron, even if mulcted for ill-considered or
hasty action, would be compelled to pay the
mulct out of his own pocket, without being
reimbursed by the government in whose behalf
he was acting when he incurred the responsi
bility. But in this instance, let us say, the
disease of injustice, if any there was, carries its
own remedy with it. For if Pierce Butler end
James W. Wall, at the time of their incarcera
tion in Fort Lafayette, did not deserve such
punishment, their late action shows that they
do now. Wall conclusively proved that better
men were lying in Fort Warren, when after his
release be endeavored to inaugurate a conflict
between the State of New Jersey and the United
States ; and Pierce Butler shows it of himself
even more conclusively, when he commences a
prosecution ostensibly against Simeon Cameron,
but really against the United States govern
ment, at this most unseasonable time, when
the rebellion is crippled but remains anything
but crushed out.
We have before indicated that we fully recog
nize the right of these people to prosecute for
what they claim to have been false imprison
ment, and to mulct the government in damages
if they can succeed in establishing the fact that
they have been unlawfully accused and de
tained. Honest and loyal men may take such
a conr..e by and by, when the rebellion is no
more and the country is pacified. That time,
when it comes, will be a proper one for settling
up many scones that may have run behind ;
and we should be the last to blame any person
who felt that he had been wronged, for endea
voring to right himself both in reputation and
Pocket. But that time is not now, and it may
yet be in the power of these covert secessionists
so to divide public feeling by pursuing a course
like that just inaugurated, that that time will
never come. Any man. whether his name
should be Pierce Butler or a very different one
—whether he belonged to Philadelphia or New
York—who would urge a prosecution of this
kind against the government at this time (for
we repeat it is not Simon Cameron but the go•
vern went at this moment assaulted)—is a trai
tor, and deserves no better than he has before
received, if he does not meet that more conclu
sive punishment represented by a rope and a
The attempt of Pierce Butler and his doubt
ful colleagues to throw a firebrand into the
popular mind of the northern states, by such
Persecutions as this and such prostitutions of

TBE EAST AND THE WEST.
We notice, of late, a disposition displayed
among certain members of Congress represent
ing extreme western and eastern districts, to
create a rivalry. Before this feeling has gath
ered strength, even in Congress, we protest
against its being engendered in the name of
the future peace and glory of the American
Union. There is no necessity calling for dis
cussion of this kind, in Congress ; discussion
which charges rapacity on one section, while it
claims all the modesty and merit for another.
Those who indulge this feeling are among a
class of demagogues such as have precipitated
the south into rebellion. They are political
mountebanks, who seek this mode to arouse
the passions and prejudices of their section,
and when these are rampant, wield and use
them for their own elevation and power. Be
sides these objections to such a feeling, we
deny the right, moral or political, of any
man, whether he be a member of Congress or
a plain citizen, thus to attempt the antagonism
of two sections when their services are so es
sential to the preservation and maintenance of
the Union. The people of the east do not de
sire their representatives to taunt the people
of the west, and vice versa, with the people and
representatives of the west. Between the
people there is real union, esteem and respect.
It is a union on the battle field, and devotion
and respect in the hour of carnage and death.
At this moment the people of these sections
desire no rivalry. They have already witnessed
the ill effects of such a rivalry between the
north and the south. That rivalry was pro
duced by just such discussion as that to which
we now allude. It was elicted by the malice
and ambition of individuals on the floor of
Congress, until the feeling was communicated
to the people. It was made a merit among the
representatives of the slave states to hector
and intimidate the representatives of the north,
calling them to duelling fields and there shed
ding their blood for trifling offences, in
causes which had no other issue than that of
jealousy. This was the condition of individu
als in Congress a few years since, and from this
identical spirit thus evinced on the floor of
Congress, the south caught its first aspiration
to rule, and at length became rebellious be
cause the right to rule was not unequivocally
ceded to the statesmen of that section.
—We trust that not only the people of the
east and the west, but the people of every
Congressional district in the Union will discard
the representative who thus attempts to create
rivalry between sections or states. It is unbe
coming of the age and the crisis. It is un
worthy of our destiny as a free people. Let it
therefore be discarded, and let those who thus
attempt to introduce the feeling into Congress
and mingle such acrimonies with its calm pro
ceedings, be either rebuked in their seats or
rejected from its halls.
BURIAL OF THE DEAD
Gov. Curtin issued orders to Surgeon Gen
eral Smith, P. V., some days since, calling his
attention to certain rumors in regard to the
exposed condition of the Pennsylvania soldiers
who fell at Ball's Bluff. Surgeon General
Smith was directed to investigate the facts, and
at once proceeded to the discharge of that duty.
J. B. Crawford, Assistant Surgeon, P. V., was
detailed by Surgeon General Smith to hasten
to Ball's Bluff, and take such steps as were
necessary to secure the decent burial of the
dead. He reports that he has discharged that
duty so far as be was able to recognize the
bodies of the Pennsylvanians slain in that bat
tle. Every precaution was adopted to secure
the graves of these heroes from future encroach
ments, and trenches were also dug to prevent
the washing of heavy rains again exposing the
remains. In fact no labor was left unperformed
by Surgeon Crawford to give the graves a neat
appearance, and to mark each mound in such a
manner as to render them all easy of recogni
tion hereafter. He also had the assurances of
loyal men living in the vicinity that the "grave
yard" should hereafter be respected.
It is only just to state that the result of this
humane business is certainly owing to the
energy, decision and liberality of Gov. Curtin.
He immediately on hearing of the exposed con
dition of Pennsylvania's dead at Ball's Bluff,
devised the plan and purpose of restoring them
to decent graves, and marking each in a man
ner due to the men who had suffered and died
for their country. As that work has been ac
complished, let the credit go where it belongs.
LEsur. HORACE Poarsa.—By late advices from
Fort Pulaski, and by private letters received at
this office, we have the most gratifying infor
mation in regard to the conduct of our gallant
young townsman, Lieut. Horace Porter. He is
chief of ordinance on Gen. Sherman's staff, and
to him was assigned the labor and hazardous
duty of erecting the batteries which reduced
Fort Pulaski. With a detachment of raw re
cults under cover of night, he constructed
these works while the enemy were dreaming of
their security in Fort Pulaski, and when the
works were completed, and all the arrange
ments for the attack perfected, Lieut. Horace
Porter, by order of the commanding officer,
aimed and fired the first gun which was the
signal for the attack and initial of the glorious
victory achieved over the rebels at Fort Pulas
ki. After Pulaski had displayed the white
fisg, Gen. Benham, in the presence of his com
mand, congratulated Lieut. Porter for the effi
ciency of his services, and thanked him as being
mainly instrumental in the reduction of the
Fort. Thus was it reserved for a noble son of
Pennsylvania to fire the first gun to avenge
the insult on Fort Sumter.
—There is a distinguished and a venerable
gentleman in this city, for whom this gallant
conduct must have a glorious attraction, and
with whose gratification we would mingle our
congratulations. He has suffered much from
the persecution of those whom he once defended
and upheld. He has himself, when alone and
defenceless, borne the taunt and the obloquies
of the traitor foe, and wee forced to abandon
business and property, to escape the fire and
the stake of persecution. He has his victory
now in the brillant conduct of Lieut. Porter,
because in Lieut. Porter he has a faithful and
I a noble son. That venerable man is ex-Gov.
David R. Porter. May he live to see his
coantry what it was when he first became one
of its servants.
THE CUMMINGS. A Domestic Novel of Real Life,
by Hrs. Henry Wood. Philadelphia: T. B.
Peterson & Brothers.
Some time since English and American lite
rary writers were thrown into ecstasies by the
appearance and perusal of a novel, entitledliast
Lynne. The production was original in every
particular.' It was a romance of such a high
and polished order of incident, dramatic char
acter and plot, that the most eminent literary
writers were puzzled to know by whom it was
produced. This work was followed by The
Earl's Heirs, by the same author, and then it
was discovered that the novels were the pro
duction of a Mrs. Henry Wood, an English
lady of rare ability and facile imagination.—
Her last work is The Ohannings. This is a do
mestic novel, blending piety, business, love
and crime in a story of great merit and well
sustained interest. It has its share of romance,
but it is only that slight infusion necessary to
fasten the attention of its readers.
The work is for sale at BattuNea's Book
Store, in Market street.
MALY'S GREAT SPEECUES, in England and America,
on Slavery and Emancipation. Philadelphia :
T. B. Peterson & Brothers.
George Francis Train has connected hie name
with the efforts to suppress rebellion, by labors
as distinguished and disinterested as those of
any other man using his tongue or wielding a
sword or pen, in defence of the perpetuity of the
American Union, professing to be either a loyal
citizen or a gallant American soldier. Mr. Train
defended the cause of the Union in England,
when the British aristocracy were conspiring for
its destruction. He stood up for his country
in England, while traitor refugees and rebel
commissioners were being feasted and feted by
the toadies in Parliament, and the revilers of
America connected with the English press. He
has persevered in this course until Mr. Train
now has the satisfaction of beholding the Brit
ish government and people slowly but serious' y
changing their opinion on the subject of the
slaveholder's rebellion. He has survived the at
tacks of satyrists and tories until he now beholds
the British nation about to do a Christian and a
manly act, in withholding its sympathy from
those who war to destroy manhood and oblite
rate Christianity. Such has been the course of
the gallant and talented George Francis Train
in England. No American should fail to read
his speeches delivered in Great Britain.
The pamphlet containing these speeches is for
sale at BERGNER'S Book Store, Market Street.

i SKIRMISH WITH REBEL CAVALRY
OUR LOSS 15 KILLED AND 1 WOUNDED.
WASHINGTON, April 19
A portion of General HcDawell's army, the
day before yesterday, marched from the vicinity
of Warrentown Junction upon Fredericksburg.
The distance was nineteen or twenty miles,
which it accomplished by 7 A. M. yesterday.
Its progress was disputei by a rebel force of
one regiment of infantry, one of cavalry, and a
battery of artillery, which attempted to make
two distinct stands. They were, however,
driven across the Rappahannock, after inflicting
upon us a loss of five killed and fifteen woun
ded, all of them cavalry, including Lieut.
Decker, of the Harris Cavalry, killed ; Colonel
Fitzpatrick, woun led, and a valuable scout,
named Britten, badly wounded. Colonel Bay
ard's horse was badly wounded under him.
Immediately after making their escape
across the Rappahannock bridge, opposite
Fredericksburg, the rebels applied the torch to
it, and thus temporarily delayed our progress
into the town. By this time, however, that
obstacle is probably overcome.
It is not known what has been the loss of
he rebels in the above mentioned skirmish.
A telegram dated "On the road between
Fredeticsburg and Acquai Creek, April 18,".
received to-day, read as follows:
"We occupied the suburbs of Fredericksburg
on the left bank of the Rappahannock, at seven
o'clock. The troops under the immediate
command of Brigadier General Auger left
Catlett's station yesterday, and made a forced
march across the country of twenty-six miles.
"The advance of Lieutenant Col. Kilpatrick,
of the Second New York Regiment (the Ira
Harris Cavalry,) drove the enemy on the
enemy on the outposts, and charged and cap.
tured one of his camps. Lieutenant Decker,
of the Second New York Regiment was killed
by the enemy in charge.
"The troops pushed on, the next day, at two
o'clock in the morning. The advance under
Col Bayard, of the Fret Pennsylvania cavalry,
was attacked by abody of infantry and cavalry,
and bad a hot skirmish, in which we lost 5
men and 15 horses killed, and had 16 men
"Several of the enemy were killed and
wounded in the charge made on them by Col.
Bayard. The number is not reported. The
Colonel bad his horse shot four times.
"'the command then drove the enemy's for
cess, which fell back without without further
resistance, and which consisted of one regiment
of infantry, one of cavalry, and a battery of
artillery, across the Rappahannock, but were
unable to save the bridges, which were pre
pared for burning by having tar, shavings, and
light wood in the crib-work, and which were
fired as soon as the enemy had crossed."
OUR TROOPS IN FULL OCCUPATION
WesumaroN, April 20.—The design of Gen.
McDowell to advance upon Fredericksburg was
probably known to more than half a dozen per
sons in Washington, and they strictly kept the
secret. The occupation of the suburbs of that
town was the first news concerning it. Our
troops are now in full occupation.

THE ATTACK ON FORT WRIGHT
THE FIGHT ON THURSDAY IND FRIDAY
Special to the Chicago Tribune.
CAIQAOO, April 19
Off Fort Wright there was very heavy firing
on both sides on Thursday, our mortars opening
at noon. The enemy replied briskly from his
land batteries, throwing shell clear over us,
and nearly across the river. Their firing was
very accurate, and from very heavy guns.
The gunboats St. Louis, Carondelet and
Cairo, which were stationed as picket ships
near the extremity of the point, had to move
up the river to get out of range. The firing
was kept up on both sides until midnight. The
gunboats St. Louis and Cairo were struck by
shell, but no damage was done.
Yesterday there was but little firing. In the
afternoon the mortars were shifted to the op
poside side of the river for greater protection.
In their former position they were in great
danger from prowling rebel bands, who have
.Iready cut the levee In two or three places, to
embarrass the operations of the mortars.
Deserters from the enemy say their batteries
can mount about forty guns, and they have
sixty more which are being put in position.—
Gen. Bragg has assumed command, succeeding
Villipugue. There are about six thousand re
bel troops there, and four gunboats in the rives,
mo unting twenty-four guns.
The bombardment of Fort Wright continues,
and is participated in by our mortars and gun
boats. The enemy reply vigorously, doing no
damage. There is no expectation of the re
duction of the fort at present. The high stage
of the water will prevent any co-operation on
the part of the land forces for some days.
Every house in Columbus is surrounded by
water. The telegraph line from Cairo to Pitts
burg, Tenn., has been carried away by high
water. At Cairo, the river is now within a foot
of the top of the levee.

water is running into the lower stories of the

XXXVIIth Congress—First Session,
WABHINGTON, April 21
The President pro tom presented petitions in
favor of the bankrupt law. Also in favor of the
construction of the proposed ship canal from
Lake Michigan to the Mississippi river.
Mr. LANE (Ind.) presented a petition from the
free colored citizens of the United States, pray
ing the government to set aside a portion of
the territory outside of the national limits for
their colonization, and naming Central America
as a desirable locality for this purpose.
Mr. LANE said that while he did not believe
the free colored people were entitled to all the
tight and privileges of the white citizens of the
United btates, he nevertheless favored their
just right to petition, a right awarded even
among the most despotic governments of Europe
to the humblest citizen. It is evident that, as
the slaves were freed here in this District, and
in the South by our armies, something must be
done with them, and emancipation or an
apprenticeship system must he adopted. It
was not in accordance with the genius
of our institutions, that these people should be
retarned to slavery. He alluded to the great
bloodless and moral triumph of freedom in the
abolition of ale very in the District of Colum
bia, as wily equal to the triumph of our arms
by the chivalric and brave eons of the west, to
whom should be paid a glorious tribute. The
memorial was respectful and deserving of the
attention of Congress. He desired that it
should be read and referred to the Committee
on Foreign Relations, and his motion to that
effect was agreed to.
