Thursday Afternoon, October 30, 1862.
THB &WES 01 THE TIMES
We have heretofore referred to the fact that
the position of certain leaders of the party in
the north which opposes the government, india
cates more than a mere difference of opinion.
Men such as Frank Hughes, William B. Bead,
J. Glancy Jones, Glornlbrenner, and their asso
ciates, are not struggling merely to gain politi
cal power in their own immediate locality.—
They have a larger purpose in hope of accom
plishment, and to this purpose they are deter
mined to devote not only their own interest,
but the interests and welfare of the nation.—
In this view of the condition of parties, so far as
the Breckenridge Democracy are concerned, we
are joined by journals that are also devoting
their earnest attention to the subject. The
Bulletin says that it is futile longer to attempt
disguising the fact that there are tokens abroad
of mischievous political spirit. The late elec
tions furnished corrupt, traitorous and unprin
cipled men with a desired opportunity, and
they took advantage of the usual license of dis
cussion during an election campaign to utter
sentiments width are well calculated to divide
the loyal people, to give "aid and comfort" to
the enemies of the country, and to embarrass
the administration in its honest efforts to quell
the rebellion—sentiments, which, a year or eigh
months since, would have brought those
who uttered them to a short shrift, a sufficient
long rope and the nearest lamp post. Men who
utter these sentiments, or at least, who hurrah
for them through party zeal, would have been
among the first to punish their utterera a year
ego, and even now they would st.nd aghast,
could they but see clearly the road along which
they are drifting.
Designing men, some of whom come of a
long line of traitors, taking advantage of old
prejudices and popular catchwords, have en
trapped well meaning men into a support of
what they in their hearts detest ; and we now
find uerv3papers iu the loyal states uttering
daily memoirs upon the Government which
would be worthy of a place in the Richmond
Dispatch or the Charleston Mercury. Thete
treasonable sheets ignored the long history of
Southern aggression and of Northern humilia
tion to the slave power, until the latter
threw off the mask, and kicking away its old
associates, boldly struck at the very vitality
of the nation. They conceal the fact that the
late god of their political idolatry is in arms
against the republic and warring against the flag
we all revere ; they ignore the incontrovertible
truth that slavery is the corner-stone of this
infamous rebellion ; that its perpetuation and
extension are the primary objects td the
traitors Unarms, and that there can be no hope
of a final aki permanent peace while this dis
tracting.carrae is undisturbed. While ignoring
these facts, they pervert and torture the acts
of the President; they are perfectly blind to
the unavoidable and governmental necessity
which prompted the late proclamation of
emancipation,and raising the old hackneyed cry,
abolitionism, they would destroy the last hope
of freedom in the world, and carry the North
into the vortex of Southern anarchy and politi
The plans of the Breckenridge traitors among
our peop e are slowly but gradually developing
themselves ; the next grand move will be an
open anti-war party, and an attempt to carry
the North over to its old Southern dictators, or
the alternative of a divided and ruined country.
We implore well meaning but misguided demo
crats to pause before they lend themselves to
the infamous schemes of men who are reckless
of consequences, so that they can accomplish
their own aelfieti ends, whose protestations of
loyalty have thus far been mere lip-service, and
who, by long habit, naturally put their necks
in the yoke of Southern political taskmasters.
That such men are suffered to thus insult and
obstruct the Government in its desperate strug
gle to preserve the nation from ruin, is of itself
a sufficient answer to the chirp that the Ad
ministration is arbitrary and oppressive. In
no other country under heaven would such.
half-disguised traitors be suffered to plot mis
chief and hatch treason undisturbed by the
strong hand of the Government.
OAPT.9IN T. IR WIN GREGG
We neglected, in the midst of our other du-I
ties, and during the excitement both before and.
siiiNhe election, to notice the fact that Capt.
j in Gregg, of the regular army, had bead
se acted to command one of the Cavalry Begi-:
ments recently organized at Camp Curtin.
The selection was one of those spontaneous af
fairs quite refreshing in these days of huckster
ing and competition for military position, and
Is as well a compliment to the man thus placed
in command of the regiment, as it is an earnest
of the discrimination and judgment of those
who are to follow Col. Gregg in the battles into
which it may be his fortune to lead his regi
With being a cavalry officer of fine ability,
Col. Gregg blends in his reputation those sterl
ing qualities and virtues without which the
character of the true soldier is not complete.
He is earne,t and enthusiastic—has an abiding
faith in the cause for which he fights—believes
in the purity and sacredness of the great prin
ciples at stake, and takes part in the struggle
in which the Government is now engaged, as a
man enters on a contest is which his own life
and the lives of those around whom cluster the
sweetest affections of his heart, are involved.
—We are satisfied that the men of the regi
ment commanded by Col. Gregg, will always
glory in the fact of his leadership.
When the rebellion which is now so formida
ble, was precipitated, the most loyal men in
the land were those .most appalled at its de
monstrations. Loyal men had no knowledge
either of the extent of the danger to which the
country was exposed, or the purposes of those
thus assuming antagonistic position to the gov
ernment. Therefore the loyal men of the
country were disposed to regard the attempt of
the south, at first, as a mere ebulition of politi
cal passion and resentment, which would sub
side after a time, and the country suffer no
injury from the demonstration other that
which it had long suffered from the bad influ
ences of slavery. But the sympathisers with
treason in the free or loyal states understood
the true extent of the rebellion. The leaders
of the Democratic party north, who bad thrust
Breckenridge on that organization until it was
divided and bitterly antagonized, understood
the state of the Union thoroughly. They knew
that rebellion was organizing. Acting on this
knowledge, they adopted the plan of assisting
such rebellion to success, by attempting to pre
scribe the powers of the government in the
emergency, and by boldly proclaiming that
the national authority was inadequate to the
warding off of the national danger. By as
sumptions such as these, the Breckenridgers of
the north were only sustaining the part as
signed them in the great tragedy of rebellion.
Breckenridge and Bigler, in the Senate, with
Buchanan and Floyd in the Cabinet, acted in
conjunction. This states the case, so that
when the government and the people had been
really awakened to the real danger, which
threatened both, the first great duty which pre
sented itself to loyal men, was to suppress the
disloyal spirit which pervaded the north. Was
the Government to go to work with steel and
lead (the great weapons of the Patriot,) or could
the law be sustained ,by merely arresting, de
taining and humiliating such as those who were
in active or in secret sympathy with the armed
traitors of the South ? As this question was
pondered, the danger to the Uni n was daily
augmenting, until the choice lay between
prompt action for the safety, and dilatory
hesitation to the destruction of the Government:
Forced by such a necessity, the War Depart
ment commenced the arrest of northern sympa
thisers with and abettors of treason. The policy
was productive of good, because it gave strength
to the Government when it was supposed to be
weak, and at the same time elicited that re
spect for its power which was needed to induce
hesitating men to rely upon its ability with
confidence. Under such circumstances, the War
Department did not make a single arrest which was
not justified by the action and the language of the
parties arrested. 'the proceedings saved the
northern states from bloodshed. Had not
the War Department acted with the promptness
with which it did—had not northern traitors
been thus humiliated— the rebel army would
now indeed be in occupancy of some of our rich
est commercial cities, while the genius and the
industry of the north would have been forever
thus chained to the juggernaut car of southern
The arrests which were made by the War
Department were not prompted by personal
spleen. The conduct of those arrested, was not
prominent for any attack on the Secretary of
War personally. Their attacks were on the
government, and hence their justifiable arrest
and detention. Viewed in this light, then, the
attempt to class a recent military arrest in this
city, with arrests heretofore made by the War
Department, is a failure—a miserable failure on
the part of those who are yet suffering from the
whip of justice in the same particular, to class
their criminality with .the innocence of the
party so recently outraged. The assumption of
power by an individual, in order to gratify a
personal feeling of revenge, is far different from
that of the Head of a Department of the
erament, acting for the highest interests and
defence of that government. The one plays
the petty tyrant, and should be rebuked and
deposed at once—while the other is in the ex
ercise of his legitimate authority, wielding high
and sacred power for the preservation of the
peace and happiness of the whole People. Such .
are the distinctions and the differences between
a military arrest ordered by the War Depart:,
merit, and an arrest prompted by the vindic
tiveness of one who writhed under the lash of
A VOICE FROM TEE ARMY.
We have always maintained that the men
who compose our armies, are opposed to those
who are antagonising the federal administra:
tion. We have insisted that if those men
were at home, without regard to the party/
predilection they may hive entertained before:
entering the army, they would support the;
President and his policy to crush the rebellion.!
In this course we have received many assurae4
ces that we were right, direct from the army,i
from men whose Democracy stood as high sui,

[Special Correspondence of the - TELIbaR &PH.
We are in the midst of a severe storm of wind
and rain, and in camp and out, there is nothing
but mud. Should the present weather continue
a few days longer, campaigning in Maryland or
in Virginia, for this season at least, will be at an
end. You at home no doubt wonder why
six or seven weeks of loveliest Autumn
weather should be allowed to pass by without a
forward movement being attempted, but not
less puzzled than we of the army. A week or
ten days rest after the battles of South Moun
tain and the Antietam, would have sufficed to
give us all needed supplies, but to find week
after week elapse, without the Joist attempt to
furnish the brave soldiers with shoes and cloth
ing, has had a depressing effect upon them.
[hey see naught save the mud blockade and
six months winter quarters, thus prolonging
the rebellion, and keeping them from returning
soon to their mountain homes in the north.
After the battles of Marylon , our gallant heroes
were filled with en enthusiasm that, if per
mitted, and properly supplied, ebbe, retreating
rebels would not dared have stopped tufa aide
of the Confederate Capital, or taunt us by re
maining in force fifteen miles distant. We
should not have been SO humiliated by the
forays of Stuart's cavalry, who were basely per
mitted to return to rebeldom, with articles des
tined for our own troops. Where this nib
managtment rests we shall not say, * suffice it
that it has disheartened as glorious an army as
ever faced a foe.
From rebel deserters escaping Into our lines
yesterday, we learn that Lee .and Jackson
nave gathered their shattered forces and are
fortifying Bunker Hill and Winchester. Why
these are not prevented we are at a loss to know.
Bunker Hill, you will, remember, became fa
mous in the three months' campaign, and the
prospect is that a thrice more terrible battle is
impendinga. The rebels are working day and
night on the entrenchments, determined, they
say, to make a vigorous resistance. That ours
the victor shall be, we doubt not, yet when we
think how dearly purchased it will be, owing
to this, listless inactivity and delay on our
part, we _ shudder at the thought. We are well
aware of the terrible carnage, which has been,
and we can only see hecatombs more of brave
hearts oho will yet seal their lives as martyrs
to the cause of Right and Justice, Equality and
Freedom ;, but what is the gain ? The restora
tion of a Union once glorious and renowned,
cemented by the blood of the Bevolntionary
fathers, and again to be strengthened by that
of an equally devoted band of lovers of true
liberty. Still viewing it in this sublime light,
does not palliate mismanagement, or excuse
bad generalship. Whether that wily rebel chief
taro, Jackson, or the audacious Stuart, will be
permitted to remain as close to our lines for
any length of time remains to be seen, "Now'
should be the watchword of the hour—we are
sorry to tell you it is—"; Cur." If the former
policy is pursued, you of Pennsylvania may
expect frequent visits from the bold chivalry of
the south, and although we may be acquainted
with their entrance into our State, lest we might
possibly overhaul the rebel horde and put a check
to their pillaging propensities, we will be allowed
to remain idly in camp, eating "
and " mule beef." However, it is to be hoped
that wiser 'counsels will preva il-that vigorous
measures will he taken—our nimiltipplied with
necessaries at the proper time,,and when the
" weather permits" (?) march on. In this con
nection we may state, that in very many of the
regiments the soldiers are` barefooted. • Espe
cially i this the case with the new (nine months)
Pennsylvania regiments. 'Why is it that the
men of that gallant old State are treated so
meanly. The other State regiments ate as a
general thing furnished with good, warm cloth
ing, while ours are but poorly supplied. To
give you an instance,we would'state that within
the past few days the regiments of several di
visions have received new_ clothing. The New
Jersey brigade have had a supply of excellent
make and fabric Yet the poor Pennsylvanians
were furnished with the worst "shoddy" ever
manufactured. Our boys, however, repudiated
the greater portion,•and as a consequence are
compelled to go without overcoats the present
inclement weatber,4his being the objtetiona
ble piece. Now where does this evil rest ? It
is A well known , fact, that ever since the three
menthe' service, the Pennsylvania troops have
been supplied with abominable clothing, until
it is a by-word among the soldiers from other
States, " the ragged.Permsylvanians."
We notice that some of the newspaper car
reepoadents complain of the tremendous waste
of the army„ and impute the evil to the men.
It is an undoubted Act that of ha daily waste of
our army would subsist an army half its numerical
strewth, but the causes. of this are due to Abase
who furnish the supplies. .We have seen , boX

No news of importance has been received

The news received to-day from the vicinity

A request was made, to-day to remove the

hour. This shows that the leading generals
are not a great distance from our lines, and
that the rebel army has not as yet retreated
down the Shenandoah valley.
The rebels nave sent their sick and wounded
