- AN IMPORTANT ORDER.
The War Depaitment has just issued an order,
to the effect that all officers belonging to the
army of the Potomac, and now absent from
their posts, are to join their various commands
within twenty four hours after the date of the
order, or be subjected to dismissal. The War
Department be praised for this necessary order!
It will either rid the service of a large number
of drones or it will compel those who now hold
positions of command to make an effort at
least to earn the money which they are receiv
ing from the government. It will apply to
am.ther though limited class of men who have
been threatening to resign in case a certain of
ficer should be removed from the command of
the Army of the Potomac. Hundreds just such
as these have been lounging in the bar-rooms
and the gambling saloons either of Washington
city or the northern cities, while their com
mands have been compelled to get on without
their B,.rvices. It is to these men that we owe
the clamor which has always been raised when
truth or justice sought the proper estimation of
the merits of any leader, and it is these, now,
who are to be forced to face the responsibility
which they so delight to boast' of having as
—No order that has yet been issued by the
War Department, will meet with more general
approval than the one relating to those who
have been shirking their duty by sneakingly
absenting themselves from their commands.
Epanletted gentlemen who have lately been
enjoying themselves iu this and other localities,
will be Interested in this order. For their bene
fit we print it, as follows:
• ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE,
Washington, Nov. 10, 1882.
Spacial Order .No 338.—Atl officers, of what
ever grade, belonging
j to the army of the Poto
mac, will proceed to join their reef)-cave com
mands within twenty-tour hours.
The penalty for disobedience to this order
will he dismissal from the service.
By command of Major General Hal leck:

This looks like action, and every lover of his
country will hail this order with unalloyed de
AN IMPORTANT REPORT.
We print, to-day, the most important docu
mentary reference to the rebellion, that has
yet been made or published. It is the report
of the Committee appointed to investigate the
surrender of Harper's Ferry. It pres -nts a
startling array of facts, such as will challenge
the amazement and the indignation of the
country, and consign those to whom it special
ly refers, to an obloquy in history from which
no pen will ever be wielded for their rescue,
except it is the pens of men who aro allied to
the guilty by those political prejudices to
which we can safely trace all the causes of the
present unholy rebellion.
The history of no nation that ever had an
existence or wielded influence, presents such a
speotacle as that which was and is exhibited in
the uprising of this people. When the rebel
lion was precipitated that sought the. destruc
tion of the government, the people were ready
for any sacrifice necessary to its rescue. Men
rallied around the flag as children cluster
around a dear mother. Human life and limb
were estimated at a small value in comparison
with the existence and authority of the govern
ment. Money was offered by millions. The
most magnificent plans were freely adopted
and supported. Yet, after a year of struggle
—with almost every family in the land mourn
ing IV; loss—with business on the verge of ruin
—with speculation rampant in the market,
controlling the means of hvtog and holding in
command the common resources of domestic
comfort—with all these facts patiently iudured,
at length we have the startling report that the
disaster to our arms, that the results most af
fecting the nation, and contributing most
to the depression of trade, business, industry,
social and domestic life of the people, are abso
lutely to be traced to the open neglects and
culpable slothfulness of those to whom the
country looked for and had a right to expect,
vigilance, vigor and victory. Is it any wonder
that popular indignation should burst upon
and pursue such men f Is it surprising that
European nations should impatiently regard
our delays, when they can as fairly behold our
means of operation and the opportunities we
have had to end this wart Certainly not.
It is not too late to remedy the evils which
have sprung from the neglects thus so clearly
pointed out by the Harper's Ferry Investiga
ting Committee. It is too late, however, to
repair the loss in life and limb. The wives
who have been widowed and the children or
phaned, have no redress. But the blood of the
loved ones is on the heads and charged to the
hands of those who have thus led the nation
to the verge of ruin. It will cling in horror to
their memory while their names are identified
with the rebellion. It must be their heritage
of infamy and disgrace. It will be their dam
nation before the people whom they have so
We submit the report to which we allude, to
the candid and fair perusal of the people. No
man should fall to study its facts. It is the
key which unlocks the mysterious disasters of a
year. It supplies the proof to show why victory
has been so long withheld from our armies. It
affords an explanation of the delays of the war.
It does not charge any man with treason, and
yet if treason is made up of issues less culpable
than these neglects, shortcomings and sloth
fulness, its heinousness disappears, and it as
sumes an attraction almost worthy of our ad
JOHN VAN BUREN, ESQ
The man whale name is placed at the head
of this article Is still living. It may be neces
sary to say this, as many supposed he was poli
tically dead and buried many years ago under
the ruins of abolitionism. But John holds on
tenaciously to politicaUfe. He has risen from
under the great weigh l rOf his anti , slavery, pro
feisSions and come out with renewed vigor, a
wag. A Democrat of the pure New York Wood
stamp. A pro-slavery man, and what is more
strange than all, an economist.
History is rather silent on what produced the
resuscitation of John Van Buren. He emerges in
full size and action. Opposed to contractors,
opposed to government, and stranger still, op-,
posed to opposition to government. During
the administration of Martin Van Buren we had
a war. It is believed that Jolh► aided . hisfather
in the transactions of that fray. We were in a
war with a desperate foe—not a numerous foe
—not an army occupying much npacenot a
force well armed, or provided for, but still a
desperate army to :manage by such men as
President Van Buren, assisted by Prince John,
and a host of lucky contractors. We may as well
write that the foe was certain ragged,if not naked
Indians,' and their territory was a few swamps
in Florida. Well this desperate war lasted two
or three years, and broke Mr. Van Buren's gov
ernment down. Martin could not boi row money
at six per cent., and the National Legislature
was called in extra session to devise ways and
means to carry the Government through the
year, and pay off the large contracts. John has
a holy horror of contractors, and well he may,
for the exorbitant contractors, of that day, far
surpassed all that went before and all that
ever will follow them. We will mention one
case. A large contract tar corn at THEE DOL
LABS A BUSHEL, and nearly all other articles
contracted for in proportion. With John Van
Buren's experience, he should be placed in a
station where he could manage contracts. His
long sleep has benefitted him on this question
But Mr. John Van Buren has not slept off the
recollection of a►l the opposition that has been
made to wars in this country. His father went
with the Federalists of 1812 in opposing Mr.
Madison and the war. John in all his waggery
does not say a word about this. It would have
politically killed Mr. Van Buren, but he had the
good sense to step with great exactitude in
"the footsteps of his illustrious predecesior," and he
was awarded four years of political existence.
Not as a reward for his support of Mr. Madison,
not as a recognition for the intelligence of his
head, or the emotions of his heart ; but for hie
skill in "footsteps." It is true Mr. Van Buren
seems to have slept off the recollection of these
facts, but he, in his horror of opposition to war,
cites the case of the Whigs in the Mexican war,
and here we must write, he gives us some origi
nality. But the entire want of truth spoils his
Mr Van Buren tells us the Whigs opposed the
Mexican war. His long sleep may be an excuse
for his false assertion. The Whigs and a large
portion of the. Democratic party opposed the
declaration of war against Mexico, but when it
was made in opposition to the exertions-of such
men as Thomas H. Benton and Martin Van
Buren, they rallied, armedand fought it out. We
had giants in those days, and they sent their
beloved eons to fight our battles in Mexico.
Clay and Webster sent their sons to the war,
and each lost one of their family in battle. The
war they did not approve, but they were Ameri
cans and loved their country. The man that
asserts that the Whigs did not do their duty in
the Mexican war, states a known falsehood, and
we advise John to try some other subject.
ORDERED TO TRENTON.
Many persons ire perplexed to know why Major
General McClellan has been ordered special
ly to report agrenton, N. J. The factittof no
importance, tirfar as the locality is concerned.
Perhaps he indicated that city as preferable for
retirement, and "hence the War Department
specified it as a point to which to report. The
main object was that he should leave the army,
that he should be relieved from active duty.
He might have indicated this city as a place
to retire, or he might have preferred San Fran
cisco. The Departfftent is of course indifferent
as to the geographical point of retirement of
any of those who are relieved from active duty
fur a time. All that is required is to have a
fixed locality, so that in case of a demand for
their service, a summons to duty may reach
them as speedily as possible. For these reasons
Gen. McClellan was ordered to report at Tren
ton, N. J.

That committee was composed of soldiers who

the sloth, the extravagance, the utter negli
gence and unwarrantable idleness of the army
under McClellan and Wool. Before we had any
knowledge of these facts, we approved of the
removal of Gen. McClellan, because we were
convinced that the Administration had done no
wrong by that act, but that in this, as in all its
acts, it was controlled by a high sense of the
force of its own oaths, and was ready to respond
to the obligations under which it was held, to
save the country. Will the Patriot print and
candidly refer to this report of the Harper's

The elections which have just passed, incul
cate no sterner lesson than that which they
teach concerning the necessity of harmony in
the Republican party. - Wherever the Repnbli
cart party made the clear issue of supporting
the national administration, and placed itself
square upon the policy of the President to
crush rebellion, it was gloriously triumphant.
However opposed by outside influence—however
denounced as "abolitionists," as "fanatics" or
" agitators," when our candidates stood fair on
principle, and were harmoniously backed by the
Republican party, the victory was complete and
brilliant. But where ambitions men intruded
—where personal quarrels and spites were ad_
sumed by the mass of the party—where petty:
mischief frustrated patriotic measures, the
Republican party ingloriously and unavoid
ably failed. Now that this political strug
gle is over, this lesson comes home to our
heats and judgment. Its recurrence must
be guarded against in the future. Our
principles are worthy of harmony. The
destiny appointed to all true Republicans de
mandti organization for its full realization. If
we appreciate this lesson, inculcating as it does
the necessity of harmony, vigor, the under
standing which flows from noble purposes, and
the determination which must be our future
course, the Republican party will never again
be- defeated. Therefore let us organize and
agitate. The principle of self-government is
at'stake. Liberty in its proudest phase is in
volved. Religion, order, peace and justice all
demand that the Republican party of the Union
should so gather its strength, organize its num
hers and assert its principles, that Whilst we
exist as a Republic at leaet, its policy should
prevail in our government. This can be done
1 as easily as truth can be made triumphant over
faliehood I And it is werthy the /*err.
A RAT SITOELNG A Cow.—Many anecdotes are
told of the cunning and sagacity of the rat, as
well as of its daring, and the ingenuity , of its
schemes for obtaining food, but the following
fact having come under my own observation,
may not be considered unworthy of notice ; for
although similar instances have, I believe, been
recorded, they are of such rare occurrence as
nut to obtain general credence :
On going into my own cow,shed a short time
since to see a newly calved cow, I found her
quietly chewing her cud, and to , my astonish
ment, I observed a large rat lying at full length
between her hind legs, sucking vigorously at
one of her teats. My first impression was that
the rat was dead, however he had got there ;
but I soon discovergd the bright eye of the rat
turned toward me, the point of the cow's teat
in his month, and quick suction movement of
his jaws and throat. So fascinated did the rat
appear with his refreshing occupation that he
took no further notice of my entrance than by
watcl.ing me out of the corner of one eye, and
was not even disturbed by my calling loudly to
the gardener at the lower end of the yard to
come and witness the novel sight. His excla
mation, on seeing, was, " Well, sir, I'm sure I
never did see such a thing in all my life." Nor
was it till he stooped with the intention of tak
ing the thief by the tail that the rat attempted
to move. He then sprang suddenly from his
soft bed and made a push toward the corner of
the pen, where he quickly met with the reward
of his temerity, and was knocked over with a
stick. It had been remarked that the cow
seemed to have less milk than she should have
bad so soon after calving, and it may readily
be supposed that the supply was actually and
perhaps materially diminished by this auda
cious thief, at.d others, no doubt, of his thiev
ish fraternity, to the friendly fountain.
GOLD Mnrss or TER COLUMBIA.—Better reports
are coming from the new gold mines or a por
tion of them, on the western slope of the Rocky
Mountains, than a few months back. Salmon
River, however, is but seldom mentioned.
Powder River is one of the principal points of
attraction. Good mines are reported on some
of the head waters of John Day's River. Some
good reports come from Deer Lodge, Hell Gate
and other streams in the same vicinity. These
streams are the head waters of the North Fork
Of the Columbia, or Clark river. Good diggings
are also reported to have been found on some
of the head tributaries of the Missouri.
All these mines are in a high latitude, and of
lofty altitude. Letters from there report sharp
frosts in July and August, and from one to two
inches of ice every night in the early part of
September. A few miners are reported as doing
well, but the vast majority are doing nothing,
or the next thing to it. There can be but little
agricultural country there, and the settlers
must long be dependent upon the distant mar
kets of St. Louis and Portland, Oregon, for their
Tha Jackson Mississippian groans over Butler's
Operations at New Orleans. It says that on the
22d ult., a new Abolition brigade, under Brig
adier General Weitzel (late acting Mayor of
the city,) consisting of seven regiments of in
fantry, (two of them negroee) a squadron of
cavalry and four pieces of artillery, were sent
np the river. At the same time, five or six
gunboats 4nd transports sailed down the river,
bound for Berwick Bay, to co operate with the
land forces. It is well understood in the city
that this expedition of pirates and robbers was
intended to devastate that rich and beautiful
country lying in the neighborhood of Bayou
Teche. This section of Louisiana abounds in
sugar, molasses and cotton, all of which, to
gether with the negroes, were to be "confisca
ted" by these ah, lition thieves.
Miler the action of the Confiscation act, the
Provost Marshal had already held some sales
of very valuable property—such as silverware
pictures, libraries, and flue household furni
COMMONPLACE WOMEN .—Heaven knows how
many simple letters, from simple minded wo
men, have been kissed, cherished, and wept
over by men of far loftier intellect. So it will
always be to the end of time. It is a lesson
worth learning by those young creatures who
seek to allureaby their accomplishments, or to
Hassle by their genius ; that though he may
admire, no man ever loves a woman for these
things. He loves her for what is essentially
distinct from, though not incompatible with
them—her woman's nature and her heart.
This is why we so often see a man of high ge
nius and intellectual power pass by the De
Staels and the Centimes, to take unto hie bo
som some wayside flower, who has nothing on
earth to make her worthy of him, except that
she is—what so few of your "female celebri
ties" are—a true woman.

HEADQUARTERS, ARMY OF THE POTOMAC,
WARRENTON, Monday Evening, Nov 10
General McClellan was to have lett yesterday
for the North; but the transfer of so large a
command could not be accomplished in a day,
and he was therefore coMpelled'to remain. ,
At 9 o'clock last evening all the officers be.
longing to the headquarters assembled at the
General's tent to bid him fareirell. The only
toast given was by Getieral McClellan, being
" The Army of the Potomac."
General McClellan and staff, accompanied by
General Burnside, to day hid farewell to this
army, visiting in succession the several army
corps. As the General rode through the ranks,
the torn and tattered banners of the veteran
regiments were dipped to greet him, while the
thousands of soldiers gave vent to their feelings
in continuous rounds of applause.
The General and his ataff will leave by special
train to-morrow for the North.
ADDRESS OF BIJRNSIDE.
The following order was issued by General
Burnside on his taking the command of the
"In accordance with General Orders No. 182,
issued by the President of the United States, I
hereby, assume commend Of i the Army jot'. the
"Patriotism and the exercise of my every

with him, I feel that it is not as a stranger that
I assume their command. To the Ninth corps,
so long and intimately associated with me, I
need say nothing. Our histories are identical.

confidence in the unswerving loyalty and de
termination of the gallant army now entrusted
to my care, I accept its contrbl with the stead

THE SOUTHERN ARMY SHOELESS.
DAVIS AND RIB CABINET DENOUNCED
Thousands of the Rebel Soldiers Barefoot in
MIS FOR TIM ARMY
From the Richmond Whig of Saturday.]
A correspondent, in a brief note which we
publish this morning, makes a practical appeal
to the humanity and patriotism of the people of
Richmond in behalf of our shoeless soldiers,
This appeal is powerfully reinforced by the
snow storm of yesterday, and the actual setting
in of winter.
It is terrible to think that hundreds, nay
thousands of our brave troops—our eons and
brothers and friends, who are suffering that we
may be comfortable, are in this bitter weather
withi , nt the corn I orts of n egroes —of paupers, or
even of convicts in the penitentiary—are liter
ally barefooted in the snow.
Shame, shame on those who have failed to
prevent this, and on those who now permit it
Better that the President and his cabinet, his
quartermaster general and all their aids should
walk these icy streets with naked feet till
spring, than that our noble army should be in
the condition in which this blast of winter finds
them. The Government is cruelly, criminally
' culpable in this matter ; but their is something
more important and pressing for the people
now to do than sit in judgMent on delinquent
officials, and that is to do what they can to
supply the neglects of their public agents.
Our correspondent suggests a convenient and
ready mode by which at least partial relief can
be afforded. We implore all who have it in
their power to adopt his suggestion. This is no
false alarm—no sensation paragraph. The con
dition of the army is heart-rending. The people
must come to the rescue. Men who have fought
and suffered as they have done must not be '
neglected by those who stay at home to make
money and keep snug and warm. The Gov
ernment cannot be trusted. It, has no fore
thought, or is entirely indifferent to the condi
tion of the men who are perilling and enduring
everything that the country may be rescued
and made free.
Let each citizen resolve, the moment he reads
this, to tarnish one or mote pairs of shoes, or,
if they cannot be had, something else that will
serve to shield a soldier from suffering. It you
havn't it, buy'it, no matter at what price, if
you can pay for it ; for it is better to fill the
pockets of the horse leeches and blood-suckers
who manufacture or sell shoes and clothing
than this disgraceful condition of things should
continue au hour. What say you, citizens of
