Who are the Rebel Leadeas ?
HARRISBURG, APRIL 28, 1862
In an editorial in the late issue of the TELE
GRAPH, under the caption of "who are therebel
leaders ?" there is an error as to the nativity
of Louis Wigfall, the boldest traitor and deep
est-dyed villain in rebeldom. Wigfall is a
South Carolinian by birth, and, I believe, born
in Charleston. Some years ago, in a street
fight in that city, he killed a man by the name
of Brooks—a brother of "Bully Brooks," the
individual who caned Senator Sumner. Short
ly after the occurrence, "Bully" challenged
Wigfall to meet him in mortal combat. They
did meet, too, at the duelling ground north of
the city, and after several shots were exchang
ed—Brooks having received a painful wound in
the leg and Wigfall a slight flesh wound—hos
tilities ceased by mutual consent. But, for the
cold-blooded murder of Brooks and other acts
of villainy, public sentiment drove him away
from Charleston city, and not long after he
turned up in Texas, in which State he held
minor positions up until the time he was elect
ed as the successor of the old hero of San Ja
cinto. "Oh what : a fall was there, my coun
trymen." I hadlA . lllora forgot to mention that
between the time of his migration from Charles
ton and the period when he , was' elevated to a
seat in the 'United States Senate be fought one
of the most disgraceful duels on the duello re
cord. The "affair of honor" occurred near Lit
tle Rock Arkansas - but Ido not remember the
name of his antagonist. The parties met in
a dark room, according to previous arrange
ments, armed with bowie knives,• and greased
all over to prevent each other from clinching.
They fought for about half an hour, at the end
of which time Wigfall gave the "finishing
touch" to his openent, but not, without receiv
ing several frightful bodily scars. His bull
dog propensities were noticed in. his braggado
cia speeches from the first time he addressed
the Senate until he was expelled therefrom.
He always exhibited in his harangues a great
contempt for Judge Douglas, but his spits of
malice fell. harmless at the Little Giant's feet,
evidently, for he never felt disposed to reply.
When the news reached Washington of the Br
ine into the Star of the West by the nest of
traitors in Fort Moultrie, Wigfall read in place
and tauntingly remarked : "There is an insult
to your flag, why do you not resent it ? You
dare not.' I was in the gallery of the Senate
at the time that this odious villaia hurled his
treason into the teethe of his sags colleagues.
How my blood did boil, to hear that outlaw
insult that glorious old flag that had braved
the battle and the beeeze for eighty-six years,
and which commanded the respect and admira
tion of the whole civilized world. All the
Senators seemed afraid to reply. In the lapse
of a few moments Senator Simmons, on the
score of Wigfall having married a Rhode Island
lady, responded in a spirit of humility and sub
mission, which seemed to encourage and revive
the drooping members. It was then that Sena
tor Clark drawed up and submitted a resolution
for the expulsion of the combative Senator.
But nothwithstanding the treasonous threats of
Wigan, the resolution was voted down nem.
con. This was prior to the time he received of
ficial notice of the Governor of Texas that the
State had withdrawn from the Union. The
reason why the resolution was not adopted
was that the Senators were of the opinion that
by expelling a member at that critical juncture
would be indirectly countenancing the heresy
of secession. But about three or four days an
terior to the bombardment of Fort Sumter, he
left the Metropolis is a reticent manner, and
presto 1 we see him in a boat gliding over the
waters in the direction of Sumter with a flag
of truce to ask the brave and immortal Ander
son to surrender, in the name of God and Beau
regard, the fort and its half starved inmates.
The next we hear of him he is on the way to
Richmond in company with the rebel thief,
picturing to the people vivid pictures of glory
and renown that was in store for them. But
the last heard from him was in New Orleans
whtre he had•not heard of a defeat, but was
expecting to receive the intelligence of one
every five minutes, thus showing conclusively
that he has not much confidence in the ability
of his southern brethren to overthrow the gov
ernment as he had during his last days in the
United States Senate. Wigfall was considered
by eminent men as the greatest extempora
neous speaker since the days of John Quincy
Adams. His ideas, too, were for the most part
original ; but a fouler or more desperate villain
never appeared for honors before 'any people.
I could see him tortured by the guillotine or
burnt at the stake without quivering, and so
could any, other person who has seen the man
or perused his speeches. For him and 'his son
"garthgapes,tiell burns, fiends roar,saints pray,
To have him suddenly conveyed from hence."
A young medical student, who had been
screwed very hard at his examination for
admission to the faculty, on a very warm
day, was nearly overcome by the numerous
questions put to him,
when the following
query was added: "What course would
vou adopt to produce a copious perspira
tion?" After a long breath, he observed,
wiping his forehead "I would have the
patient examined before the Medical So
A distinguished divine, on a certain occa-

the seven sleepers, That was not the in

ers thought it was.

mother had forbade him to draw horses and

of about $200,000. This will be greatly in
creased by the enlargement of the Illinois river,
The State of Illinois offers this canal and its
revenues to the United States on condition
that Congress will provide the means of en
larging it so as to pass gunboats from the
lakes to the Mississippi ;•this will place us upon
an equality with Britain, that power being
able by her canals to pass war vessels from the
ocean to the lakes.
The report in view of the fact that by treaty
the United Stites is prohibited from building
or maintaining armed vessels on the lakes,
urges the necessity and importance of the im
mediate enlargement of this canal, by which
the gunboat fleet on the Mississippi could be
passed through to the lakes, had this medium
of communication been open at the beginning
of the rebellion, the 1,200 vessels and 15,000
sailors now shut up on the lakes, would have
been at the disposal of the government. The
saving to the Treasury during the past year
would have been vastly more than the cost of
the contemplated work.
The committee believe that its income will
more than pay the interest on its cost, and ulti
mately pay the entire investment.

On motion of Mx. Ponca, (Wis.,) the Secre
tary of War was requested to inform the House
whether Judge Pitts, who sent a letter to the
rebel Legislature at Richmond, declaring his
loyalty to that cause, contemplated holding
his court for Accomac and Northampton coun
ties, Virginia, with the knowledge and consent
of the U. S. Military commandant of that dis
On motion of Mr. COLFAX, (Ind.,) it was re
solved that the Committee on the Judiciary be
instructed to inquire into the expediency of re
porting a bill punishing all contractors guilty
of defrauding the government, with penalties
similar to those for general larceny.
Mr. SPAULDING, (N. Y.,) introduced a joint
resolution which was referred to the Committee
on Commerce, authorizing the appohatmout of
commissioners to negotiate concerning the re
ciprocrty treaty, and authorizing the Prisident
to give the necessary notice for terminating
the present unfair treaty.
Mr. MILLET, (Ohio,) reported back from the
Committee on the Territories, a bill to punish
and prevent the practice of polygamy and an

The House resumed the consideration of the
report of the Committee on Government con
The first resolution proposed by them was
postponed for two weeks. The next resolution
in the series was taken up:
Resolved, Tt at the Secretary of the Treasury
be requested to adjust the claim against the
Government for the five thousand Hall car
bines, purchased through Simon Stevens, Esq.,
by General John C. Frcemont on the 6th day
of August, 1861, and afterwards delivered at
the United States arsenal at the city of St.
Louis, on the basis of a sale of such arms to the
Government for $l2 50 each, rejecting all
other demands made by the Government on
account of the purchase by said arms.
Mr. STEVENS, (Penn.,) moved the following
as a substitute for the above:
Resolved, That nothing has occurred to lessen
our confidence in the honesty, integrity and pa
triotism of Major General Fremont.
_ Mr. WastuscaNNAlll.,) raised a point of order,
that the substitute was not germane to the
Mr. STEVENS maintained that the original re
solution imposed a censure on Gen. Fremont.
The SPEAK= sustained Mr. Washimme's
point of order.
Mr. &Dimwit, (N. Y.,) defended the Secre
tary of the Navy and Mr. Morgan.
Mr. STEVENS said he would make good his
charge, that the committee have not conducted
their business with fairness. They had not
given notice to those whose honesty they im
pugned, nor furnished them with a copy of the
evidence ; and when requested to issue subpce
nas, they had omitted to do so.
Mr. STSVENS then alluded to the cases of
Cummings, tiacchi and Simon Stevens, who
was no relative, as had been charged by Mr.
Dawes, but only an honored constituent, show
ing that the committee had injured all these
men on bad evidence. This was not the way
in which men's characters should be destroyed
by the committees of this House. The com
mittee complain that they are charged with
lying. He had proved that their report was
fraudulent. He read Fremont's statement
and explained the reconciliation wnich had
taken place between him,Stevens and Cameron,
on the latter's course on the contraband ques
