Saturday Afternoon, November 1, 1862.
If the Democratic politicians deserve credit
feii• one thing more than another, it is for their
boldness. Their is no cowardice in their char
acter. That is, when they think they have the
power to execute any plan or carry into effect
any purpose, they act promptly, " without fear,
favor or affection." Their bravery, however, is
not of the character of those who nobly stand
up for the truth, and dare to do anything to
subserve the ends of patriotism and justice.
Democratic bravery is akin to the devil's ef
frontery. It is only effective when unopposed.
It will not stand arid fight —but when opposed,
is always ready to run arid threaten, or, at a
respectful distance, bluster and bully. lu il
lustration of these truths, the character of the
late election in Pennsylvania is in point, and
the chairman of the Breckenridge State Central
Committee furnishes a corroboration of all we
can declare on the subject. Ref , re the election
he thre ytened and promised all sorts of grand
and startlieg effects, among which were the re
lief of the people from the military draft and
the payment of their taxes. Frank Hughes
carried these promises to such an extent in
Schuylkill county, that be is now actually in
dread of returning to his home. The bluster
ing bully, who was to humiliate the rational
administration. and who had covenanted to
relieve the people from the discarge of an hon
orable duty and the payment of a just debt, now
shrinks from returning to his home. The Dem
ocratic bravery, in this instance, was the utter'
r ecklessness in making pledges, and the Demo
cratic re action in the same case, is the cow
ardly failures of the man to fulfill the obliga
tions of the politicians.
In illustration further, of this Democratic
bravery, the course of the Breckenridge sympa
thisers in the contest now being waged iu New
Yolk, is worthy of quotation. In that can
vass the same policy is pursued as that which
eneleed the same class of men to delude certain
people in this stare, namely: the promise to re
lieve the masses from the discharge of the hon
orat.le obligations due the government. In a
speech delivered by Fernando Wood, the decla
ration was further boldly tuade, thatunlests the
administration of Abraham Lincoln changed
its measures, they, the Democratic party, would'
work a change of men. That is, they, the
Democratic party, would force Abraham Lincoln
and his cabiuet to abdicate. 'This is not an
origival idea with Feinando Wood. John B.
Brattou, the editor of a sickly semi secession
sheet in Carlisle, proclaimed the same idea in
his paper, by declaring that "the people of Penn
sylvania had shaken their clenched fists in the
far. of Abraham Lincoln, and demanded that
he should come out of the Presidential chair."
In both cases of the men thus indulging in the
language of the bravado and the assassin, we
have the illustration of Democratic bravery.—
When Wood was mayor of New York, at, the
period of the precipitation of rebellion, he
seriously proposed to carry that city into the
southern confederacy. But before the aroused
masses of Gotham, he shrunk like a whipped
our, and was not heard of until he imagined
that there was some chance of again assuming
power, when 10, he is before the public, showing
his Democratic bravery by assailing the Presi
dent, b. cause he thinks it is safe and popular
to do so before the mobs whom he addresses.
These acts and assertions in the career of two
prominent leaders of the Democracy, in two of
the great states of the Union, afford a fair illus
tration of Democratic bravery. Give these
politicians the power, they will dare to do any
thing had or desperate. Strip them of author
ity and place, however, and they have not vir
tue to consummate a good purpose or the sour
age to prompt them to the performance of a
noble act If they had the power to-day, the
blood and treasure devoted to the vindication
of the authority and the preservation of the
government itself, would be all for naught,
because their only purpose now is to humiliate
the goverment, and compel it to acknowledge
the power and independence of its enemies.—
May Heaven save us from the courage, and cow
ardice too, of the Democratic.leacters.
A Dlentente Paoner.—A movement is now
on foot actively backed up, having for its object
the transmission of the United States mails
from New York via the Allentown and Harris
burg route. It is moat surprising that the
mails from the leading city of the country
should not, ere this, followed the most direct
and expeditious route to the West, instead of
being hauled (out of their course) over the
Camden and Amboy monopoly to Philadelphia,
where they are transhipped and carted a mile or
two in furniture wagons, thence to be re-shipped
to this city. We have felt the annoyance of
this matter time and again, the newspaper ex
press, which comes via Allentown, beating the
mails coming via Philadelphia twevle home, on
an average of three times a week. Another
decided advantage in favor of the Allentown
route, is the fact that the train leaving New
York several hours later in the evening than,
the Amboy route, correspondents have that ad
ditioual length of time to prepare their majl
matter. Postmaster Blair has shown a diva
ton to summarily sever red tape in several in
stancee, where the public intereAs were suffer
ing, and we feel confident, now that this long
continued grievance has been brought to his
notice, that he will take cognizance of it. and
that the New York great westefn mail will be
allowed to take the direct and natural route to
this city. We are sure the mercantile Comm
• nity will welcome the
'We clip the above front the Pittsburg Dis
patch., The Postmaster of this city succeeded
some tune since in procuring a direct mail from
New York via the above route, which leaves
New York at sis.'Velock in the mornin g , and
trilivels here at one .e. at, several hours in ad
vance of the mail carried via Philadelphia. He
went also, accompanied by a special agent from
Washington, over the route, with a view to
have the Great Western mall •carried at the
time designated in the extract, and every ar
rangement was made until they arrived at New
York, where it was discovered that no arrange
ments could be male to transport the mails to
Jersey city, from which place the cars leave,
without additional expense to the department,
which the department did not feel at liberty
to incur at that time. We hope, however, that
these difficulties may now be overcome, and
that we shall receive two mails per day direct
from New York, instead of waiting the slow
progress of traveling around by Philadelphia.
From Washington.
Ex-President Buohanan's Reply to
Ex• President Buchanan through the Nationai
Intethyme?, replies at length to Lieut. General
Scott,whose recent publications he considers an
undisguised censure of his conduct during the
last months of his administration, in reglud to
the seven cotton States now in rebellion.
In noticing the first and most prominent
among these charges, viz: His refusal imme
diately to garrison nine enumerated fortifica
tions, scattered over six of the Southern States,
according to Gen. Scott's recommendation, p he
says the refusal is attributed, without the least
cause, to Gov. Floyd. All my cabinet must
bear me witness, that I was, as President, re
sponsible for all the acts of the Administra
tion, and certain it is, that durin2; the last six
moths previous to the 29th of December, 1862,
the day on which he resigned his office, after
my request, he exercise.l less influence on the
administration than any other member of my
Mr. Holt was immediately thereafter trans
ferred from the Postoffice Department to that of
War, so that from this time to the 4th of March,
1861, which was by far the most important
period of the Administration, he performed the
duties of Secretary of War to my entire satis
faction. He then proceeded to show that there
is one answer, both easy and conclusive, even
if other valid reasons did net exist, namely :
there were no available troops within reach
which could be sent to these fortifications. To
have attempted a military operation on a
scale so extensive, by any means within
the President's power would have been
simply absurd. OF this he says, referring to the
supplemented views of the 30th of October,
General Scott himself seems to have been con
vinced. These views, both original and supple
mentary, he says, were published by General
Scott in the National intelligences on the 18th of
January, 1861, at a most important and critical
period of the administration. The publication
at that time could do no possible good, and
might do much harm. To have published them
without the President's knowledge and consent,
was as much in violation of the sacred confidence
which ought to prevail between the command
ing general of the army and the commander-in
chief, as it would have been for the Secretary of
War to publish the same documents without his
authority. What is of more importance, their
publication was calculated injuriously to affect
the compromise measures then pending before
Congress and the country, and to encourage
the secessionists in their mad and wicked at
tempt to shatter the Union into fragments.
From the great respect which I then entertain
ed for the General, I passed it over in si
lence. Mr. Buchanan then explains why he
refused to send 300 men to reinforce Major An
derson at Fort Moultrie ; and among the rea
sons, ne says he believed, as the event proved,
that Major Anderson was then in no danger of
attack. Indeed, he and his command were then
treated with marked kindness by the authori
ties of Charleston. Under these circum.tances,
to have sent such a force there, would have been
only to impair the hope of compromise, to pro
voke collision and disappoint the country ; and
having treated of the charge of having kept back
reinforcethents from Pensacola, he replies to
the charge of having also kept them back from
Charleston, saying that neither a truce nor
quasi truce, nor anything like it, was ever con
eluded between the President and any human
authority concerning Charleston. On the con
trary,the South Carolina commissioners first and
last and all the time were informed that the Pres
ident could never surrender Fort Sumter, nor
deprive himself of the most entire liberty to
send reinforcements to it whenever it was be
lieved to be in danger or requested by Major
Anderson. He alluded to other points in Scott's
views, and says he can solemnly declare before
God and his country, that he cannot reproach
himself with any act of commission or omission
since the existing troubles commenced.
Defeat of Another Band of Guerillas
Capture of Prisoners, Horses, etc.
MAJ. GIN. Cums:—l have the , honor to te
port, that on the evening of the 20th, I reoeiv
ed information of a party of rebels moving up
Niagna creek, making towards a point eight
mike east of - this place, and en route to join the
rebels in the southwest. I immediately took
one hundred and five men of the 10th Illinois
cavalry, and started about five P. M. to inter
cept them. I came on their pickets about 84. o'-
clock, drove them in, and attacked the main force
about two hundred strong, killing four nad
wounding a good many, as I afterwards under
stood, and capturing 27 prisoners, among them
one captain, who intormed me that Col. Dorsey
was in command. We also captured a number
of horses, saddles, shotguns, muskets and rifles.
My loss was one killed and one wounded.
'Phis party was organized by Bucker and
Hughes, who sign themselves majors in the
confederate army. They were scattered in
every direction through the mountains, and a
large portion returning in the same direction
they came, but they were 8 , ) completely sur
prised that they never tried to collect together
The largest trail I could find in, one party
was 10, and followed it for ten milt s next day,
when they likewise scattered in every direction,
and I ordered Captain McMahon's company of

Cam°, Oct. 31.—We have the following ad

General Hindman is In prison at Little Rock,
Arkansas, and will shortly be taken to Rich
mond for trial A large number of charges , are
brought against him.
General Albert Pike has written a long letter
to the Arkansas Patriot, showing up General
Hindman's course. He says that while General
Hindman was in Memphis, he went to the banks
of that city, under the assumed authority of
General Beauregard, and made them fork
over" a million of dollars for military opera
tions in Arkansas, and that after getting into
the latter State he issued a series of most extra
ordinary orders. The first declared martial
law ; the next had all the cotton seized fn. the
Confederate Government ; the next ordered all
provisions, of whatever kind, likely to fall into
the hands of General Curtis, to be destroyed;
the next, that all the wells in the country
through which General Curtis might pass al tould
be poisoned ; and, finally, that no citizen "should
pass beyond the limi's of Arkansas for any
purpose whatever.
Extensive Movements of the Rebel
Information has reached here from Berry-
Ville, Clark county, Va., on the other side of
the Blue Ridge, up to yesterday.
There was an apparent extensive movement
of rebel troops going on in that vicinity. Some
were proceeding on the Front Royal road, and
others down toward Castleman Ferry and She
nandale Springs. General Jackson was then at
Berryville. His troops there are without bag
gage, and those moving on the Front Royal
road also seemed to have no baggage trains
with them.
Asmall body of rebel troops were at Charles
town on the day before yesterday.
October 31, Evening.—ln the moving of an
army like this, too m , lch caution cannot be ex
ercised by all lovers of the Union in giving any
information, the knowledge of which would be
of service to the enemy. The location of divl
dons or corps, by the fact of their having moved,
though seemingly of no importance to the peo
ple of the North, is of vast benefit to the ene
my, and may be the means of unnecessarily
sacrificing thousands of lives, and defeating the
best disciplined army. Newspapers are the me
dium through which the rebels obtain many
facts valuable to them, and those who have con
trol of the press cannot be too cautious at the
present time. Information as to the enemy's
position and movements is not objectionable.'
Gen. Stuart, with from 1,500 to 2,000 men,
came in to night from Union to Mortville, and
