[Special eorrespondence of the Chicago Tribune.]
ST. PAUL, MINN., Oct. 15, 1862
It is a standing assertion of the Democratic,
alias tory papers, that the Democrats have sent
a majority of the soldiers to the army.
Fortunately the Legislature of lowa at its
late extra session provided the means of test
ing this matter, and settling the question so
far at least as lowa is concerned. One of the
lowa regiments, toe 27th, was sent to Minnesota
to help quell the Indian outbreak. The com
missioner, Mr. H. H. Hemenway, dispatched
to' take the. vote of the regiment, has comple
ted that labor. The 27th ie from the Dubuque

It will be observed that eight-ninths of the
regiment are Republicans. And when the re
turns are received from all the lowa regiments,
the proportion of Republicans will be found but
slightly less than the 27th. And yet we are
told that the Democrats furnish a majority of
the soldiers ! They have a majority of the high
officers, and that is the reason the war drags so
miserably. They will not let the men fight,
but hold them back to wear out their patience
and eat up the subsistence of the people, lest
their rebel friends may get hurt, and slavery
may be wiped out. This is the opinion of more
[From the Ottawa Republican, 18th.]
Democrats in and about Ottawa, having fre
quently denied that a large majority of the 104th
or LaSalle county regiment, are Republicans, a
request was sent to some of the officers of the
regiment, to obtain its views on the President's
proclamation. In answer to this request we
are favored with the following statement of the
vote taken :
lie Gore, SHELBYVIISE, KY., Oct. 10,1862.
Enclosed you will receive a copy of the vote
taken to-day in camp, by the companies of the
104th Regiment Illinois Volunteers, giving their
views on the late emancipation proclsunation of
the President of the United States, which re
sulted as below. The proclamation wig read
to every company, and the ayes and nays taken:
Co. A-70 fOr and 8 against. Lieut. Osman,
acting captain, would not let his men vote, but
they gave me their names as above.

We, the undersigned, members of the 104th
regiment of Illinois volunteer infantry, citizens
of LaSalle county, having read the resolutions
denouncing the emancipation proclamation ,of
the President, passed by the Democratic Con
vention, hold at Ottawa, Sept. 24th, 1862, take
this occasion to express our condemnation of
the same, and can view said resolutions in no
other light , than "as giving aid and comfort
to the enemies of the national Government,"
and do request our friends at home to express,
by their votes at the polls next November, their
approval of the course of the President in issu
ing his proclamation of emancipation ; and also
express their condemnation of the course of the
Democratic party of LaSalle county, as expressed
by their said resolution.

The Republican strongholds in this county
have filled or exceeded their quotas, as a rule,
while the Democratic strongholds are behind.
Thus, Caledonia, which 'has raised more than
double her quota, gave Gov. Blair, at the last
election, almost two-thirds of her entire vote—
or 88 out of 140 votes—and is a reliable, con

majority last sp ri n g. Walker, which is fa thed

the advance of the Army of the Potomac coat

believe that before to-morrow night the move

the Potomac in the rear.
At daylight this 'morning the cavalry force of
Gen. Pleasanton, with four pieces of artillery,'
crossed the new pontoon bridge at Berlin, eight
miles east of Harper's Ferry, and proceeded di
rect to Lovettsville, in Loudon county.
At Lovettsville our cavalry entered about
eight o'clock in the morning, and the few rebel
pickets stationed there Set before them in the
direction of Leesburg. people of this loyal
town, especially the ladies, rec. , ived our troops
with great enthusiasm, and the stars and stripes
were thrown out in all parts of the town.—
Many of their fugitive husbands and sone re
turned with the cavalry, and the demonstration
i was most earnest and unmistakable.
Without stopping, except to leave pickets
and a guard, General Pleasanton moved on in
the direction of Waterford, expecting to reach
Leesburg early In the afternoon. There was, at
last accounts, a small force of rebel infantry
and cavalry et Leeebarg, and there may possi
bly have. been a fight there, unless they retreat
ed on hearing of his approach.
ShortlY after the cavalry advance had crossed,
General Burnside, with his second army corps,
commenced crossing at the same point, and
during the whole day the bridge was constantly
under the tread of the advancing column.—
They proceeded in light marching order, though
an immense train of wagons was waiting to fol
