We protest, in advance, against all fulsome
praises, all personal laudations of Gen. Ambrose
E. Burnside. He is a soldier, and therefore
does not ask , for honors until he has fairly ren
dered himself worthy of their glory. He is a
man, and must therefore be trusted until be is
fairly tried. He is loyal, truthful, ardent and
devoted, and therefore we must confide in his
valor until time and opportunity have afforded
him the testa to establish his claim to our con
fidence and his title to our applause. Fulsome
laudation has ruined . some of the best men
that I ave been thrown upon the surface of the
It has destroyed more men, good sol
diers, than have fallen by the fire of the foe—it
has not only bankrupted the leaders, but it has
fiatikred the followers of our flag, until in the
prestige of the cause we represent, and not in
the use of the arms we possess, we had vainly
imagined we were destined to achieve goatees.
While our leaders have been brave, intelligent
and ardent, they have in many instances been
flattered into fools. Men who never stood in the
flash of battle, have been bedizzened with more
ribbons than ever decked the bosoms of some of
Napoleon's beta Mar' hale. Our armies, though
well equipped, and superior in numbers, were
este.oned as invincible before their nerves were
tested by the shuck of battle. We were con
stantly planning, not our own perfection, but
some grand schetue by which we might expose
the imperfection of our toes, wittabeir humil
iation in an anaconda like capture and out
crushing contraction of grand circles. While
this was going on, the fame of men began to
eclipse the cause of the country. While our
armies were being flattered into vain glorious
feelingeof superiority, hordes of ragged rebels
were battering their flanks and assailing their
centers until division after division found
itself within the fortifications around the dome
of the capitol, from which they had so shortly
before marched to conquer rebellion. This is
all played out. The country will no longer be
:deceived by such strategy. The - army .must
fight. Our cause needs fight to render it suc
cessful. Aud this fighting must be done with
the sabre, with the bayonet in the field, by as
sault and by pursuit. Depreciation of our ene
mies will not answer as corroboration of the
feasibility of our military plans. Gen. Burn
side understands this, and theref re has not
started out with the promise that there shall be
Uo more. retreats or defeats. He makes no
covenant with the government which he is to
serve, except the oath which binds his loyalty
to his patriotism. He offers no pledges to the
army which he is to lead, but those which con
stitute him their leader. H., has no words of
oily tI dtery for the people, but such as are ne
cessary to induce a ram k understanding of the'
important issues in which the nation is involv
ed, and which are necessary to good under
standing between the' citizen and the soldier.
Let us, then, trust in Burnside. 'Hie respon
sibility is incalculable—hie duty great, his
labor immense. He does not need praise or
applause. He must have encouragement and
support. If he wine us victory the nation will
adore him. But, if he is defeated, by whatever
cause or circumstance, God help Major General
A WINTER CAMPAIGN.
The probabilities are that we will have a
winter campaign, not one such as was witless.
oi when the army lay in the vicinity of Wash
ington, with the officers engaged in the revelries
of the Federal metropolis, and the men com
pelled to toil with the pick and the shovel. The
country demands a winter campaign, and what
is more imperative than even this, our cause
absolutely requires prompt, vigorous and deci
sive movements. We cannot suffer another
winter such as the last. Our forces in the field,
inexhaustible as our resources may seem to be,
would exhaust all these, if suffered to remain
idle another winter. Of course, the weather
may interfere with active operations, but when
the season is propitious, the army should and
must move, or the government will and must
suffer. It has been our delay s, not our want of
power or opportunity, which have prevented
the administratbm from Crushing out rebellion.

worst weather we had in any of the campaigns,
he proved what could be done even though the
elements conspired to frustrate man's efforts, 1
and he was complimented for his vigor. It
must be a winter campaign, then, in which all
our energies can be brought to heir on the
enemy. It must , be a winter campaign before
the mud blockade sets in, or it will be a winter
of waste and demoralization, which will end in
a spring of destruction more fetal to our cause
than were the swamps of the Chickahominy to
the lives of the brave men under McClellan.
Gas. CAMERON'S suggestion in regard to the
defences of New York harbor is creating the
liveliest feeling in that locality. Great activity
is being displayed by the authorities of the
city to place the harbor in a complete state of
defence. The feeling in Europe, as it wall
probed and tested by Gen. Cameron, plainly in
dicates that we have nothing to expect from
that quarter, however diplomats may con
tinue to assure us of the neutrality of Euro
pean governments. This neutrality only
means postponement until opportunity is affor
ded ler intervention, and while there is proba
bly no imminent danger toapprehend, it should
be remembered that these are the days of Mid

A POPULAR CHANGE.
We have waited patiently to hear some ob
jection urged against Gen. Schenck, as the
successor of Gen Wool, In the command of the
Middle Militiary MATlet. " We supposed that
as Gen, Wool did not pennit the people of Bal
timore to petition the President for his remo
val, he would also refuse to acknowledge his
successor. But as neither has been the case,
we dare now refer to Gen. Schenck in fitting
terms as the commander of the Middle District ,•
without incurring the displeasure of Gen.
Wool. Gen. Schenck has seen much service,
and is even now unfitted to assume the imme
diate command of his new post, by wounds and
sickness received and contracted while in active
service. For the present, -therefore; the Mid
dle District is temporarily in charge of another,
but we hope that Gen. Schenck soon will be, if
he is not already, fully recovered to assume the
important duties of his position.
Added to his other qualifications, General
Schenck is a man peculiarly fitted for a posi
tion such as the one to which he has just been
called. He is sufficient ,•f the soldier fearlessly
to do his duty, while his gentlemanly charac
4ristics will never lead - him to transcend his
power so as to assume the authority and bear
ing of a tyrant. His administrative qualities
are of the highest order ; his zeal and integrity
'undoubted, and his loyalty partakts of that en
thultiasm and firmness which it will be hard
for the secesh aristocracy of Bahimure to cor
rupt or flatter. He is, in fact, the man for the
THE WAR IN IRE WAS'2
Since the removal of Buell from command,
we notice that the operation of our forces in
the southwest, are beginning to bring their
proper returns of victory. After months of
procrastination and delay, after the most
shameful waste of . the material of war, Buell
was absolutely discovered to have been play
ing into the hands of the rebels He seemed
to be determined to weary not only the
endurance and devotion of his army, but to
dishearten and discourage the loyalty and pa
tience of. the Union men among whom he had
been sent for purposes of support and encour
agement. Now, however, the accounts from
that region indicate a great change. General
Bosacrans, who succeeded Buell, has already
made several movements. He has revived
the faith of the Union men of Tennessee.
The people rally to his approach, and the loyal
feeling, which was fearful of demonstration
while Buell was vascillating and Coquet lug with
treason, now finds vent in the success with
which Bosecrans is gilding our banners with
glory. With hie headquarters at Nashville,
and with communication by railroad open be
tween that city and Louisville, we shall soon
hear of the delivery of an effective blow by
Itosecrans. Treason in Tennessee and Ken

WS DO NOT HISITATI to declare our belief,
that the ill-fortune of the Republican party in
the late elections in New York, Pennsylvania,
New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, (for
Republican party, in fact, it was,) is attribute
ble more to the apparent abandonment of their
distinctive antislavery position, and their
efforts to secure accessions from the Democratic
party, upon the grounds that they were,
"Union" men, and in favor of the prosecution
of the war alone, than any other Circumstance.
Had they stood up before the world boldly as
Republicans—that is, as anti-slavery men—and
supported the policy of the President, because
he AN a a a Republican, and his policy and anti
slavery policy, they would have succeeded infi
nitely better. They would then have had an
independent principle around which they could
call upon all cf its friends to rally, and their
call would have been heeded. Their voice
would then have possessed the sameinspiration
which the principle was calculated to create.
And nothing . under the 'heavens is so well calculated
to reach the hearts of men, crreidly in this battle
hour between Freedom and Slavery, as an appeal to
their love of liberty—their hatred of slavery, and,
particularly, slavery in rebellion against the govern
ment they love. Never had a party a more favor
able opportunity to call into being an unbound
ed enthusiasm in behalf Pa measure which
was rightfully its own. The President had
given the opportunity of making such appeal
by setting an example of boldness in his pro
clamation of freedom. The party had simply
to follow his example. It had only to declare
itself the party of Emancipation—the anti
slavery party of the country, and the.principle
seen to be involved would have reached the
hearts of the people, and brought the required
support. Bat the golden opportunity was lost,
and the day of conflict ended in defeat.
CONGItISS.—On next Monday three weeks the
third session of the Thirty-seventh Congress
will commence in the Capitol. We note the
indications in almost every sphere of life. The
President is employed day and night in the pre
paration of his important and anxiously looked
for menage. Cabinet ministers, with their
clerks, in addition to current duties, devote
many hours to their annual reports. Our citi
zens, too, are keenly alive to the importance of
the occasion. The corporation is looking for
ward for aid from Congress in making many
improvements, some of which are really indis
peusable. Merchants are laying in large stocks
of everything needful for the "inner man."
Tradesmen display their varieties and avowed
determination to compete nobly with other
cities in reasonable prices. Hotels have been
enlarged and renovated ; private boarding
houses are making ample arrangements for sim
ilar accommodations, and in this respect many
of our experienced lady proprietors cannot be ex
celled ; whilst those who have "furnished rooms
to let" vie with each other in extending the
greatest facilities. We now have promi eof a
gay season, arrangements being in progress for
the permanent residence of a number of sena
tors, members of the House, and .other distin
guished gentlemen with their families, who
were not present during the previous winter of
the session.—Daily Morning Chronicle.

BRITISH AID FOR SOUTHERN TREASON
The English people are determined to do all
in their power to destroy the American Union,
it having been a success which they could never
imitate, and hence they envy and hate its
whole structure, object and purposes. In or
der to show how they are determined to effect
their plans of assisting in our destruction, we
qu. , te from the London correspondent of the
Boston Commercial Bulletin, writing under date of
It is well you are just about completing a
fleet of " Monitors." You are likely to need
them before long. Workmen are engaged night
and day on the Merely, on the ayde, and elsewhere,
in building some twenty iron•dads, which are to see
service in American waters. They are intended to
convoy vessels into /Southern ports. Ihis Iknoro to be
a fact. My informations direct from thcke in
confidence with the promoters. I can or.ly see
one way of preventing a good deal of mischief.
Every port for which they are designed ought
to be in power of the American government be
fore these ugly monsters can (roes the Atlantic.
Then you might 'welcome them as effective aids
in future operations. To disarm suspicion it is
popularly given out that this iron fleet is being
built for the Chinese government ; but I need
hardly tell you that Mr. Mason and his friends
form one of the chief contracting parties.
The above is one of the effects of delay. If
the rebellion had been crushed out as it should
and could have been, this sort of "foreign in
teifereace" would never have had a pretext for
operation, but as our delays have increased for
eign impatience, we must necessarily look for
just such interference as is threatened by this
fleet of " Monitors." And if the pirate Ala
bama, now the terror of the sea, has been able
to commit so many depredations, without be
ing captured, what will this fleet be able to
accomplish T . This is a question for the Navy
Of course the British government will oot
attempt to interfere with the departure of this
fleet from its ports. That would be an inter
ruption of British trade and commerce to which
the freedom loving Englishmen would not sub
mit, and in attempting which Queen Victoria
might endanger the heritage of her sou Albert.
In view of these facts, would it not be well for
our governmmt to be on the look. out lor the

The Washington correspondent of the New
York Evening Post, writing under date of the
12th inst , says that the Idea has got abroad
that Mr. Chase intends to make war upon the
banks. Nothing could be further from the
truth. He is in intimate relation with a large
number of the banks, and these institutions
are aiding the government in many ways. Mr.
Chase is so managing the affairs of his depart
ment as to enable him to cease issuing paper
currercy at an early date, if this shall be possi
ble. He is now getting clear of his remainders.
When the seven-thirties new put up aril sold,
the only remaining • original stock will be the
five-twenty six per cents. This is to be made
the great popular Government Loan. It is be
lieved that Mr. Chase will not ask for authority
to issue any more seven-thirties, or twenty
year six per cents Under these circumstances
the few millions of seven-thirties soon to be sold
will command current rates. It Is all of this
kind of stock the public will get from the Trea
The revenue of the government during 1863,
it is expected, will be not far from $270,000,-
000—5200,000,000 from taxes, $60,000,000
from duties, and $lO 000.000 from postoffice
revenues. It is said that Mr. Chase does not
estimate the revenues from taxes higher than
$160,000,000, but nearly all the financial men
connected with the department put it at or
The national debt, with an income of $270,-
000,000, will not, one year from now, be one
thousand millions, and some able financiers put
the figures as low as eight hundred millions.
It will not cost more to support an army of one
million in 1863, than it did to support an army
of 600,000 in 1862, for the reason that the
most of tip muskets and clothing and muni

had hired as substitutes at $126 each, and on
Saturday they made themselves scarce in Camp
Sullivan, escaping through a hole in the fence.
Learning that they had gone to Cincinnati,
Capt. S. followed them. Calling upon the
chief of police there, he found the pictures of
all three of the scamp 'gracing the walls of
the rouses' gallery, and he wee thus enabled
to identify and trace them. They had been
spending their ill-gotten money quite freely,
had donned new snits of clothing, and were
living " gay and festive lives." Two of
them unable to resist their old habits of ads-
chief, were already in jail, and the third was
arrested while visiting his friends. All three
were brought back by Captain Saunders and
now await their punishment, which ought to
be speedy and severe. The sooner examples
are made of such rascals the better. We learn
that they belong to a regularly organised as

Archbishop Hughes on the War and
the Feeling in Europe•
Archbishop Hugl, es has addressed a lett( r to
Secretary Seward, in which he says :
"It has, no doubt, escaped your memory
that, during the fourteen or fifteen hours which
I spent in Washington, I declined the accept
ance of what would be to persons not of my
rank a great honor. I*l not absolutely re
fuse before deciding, but I wished to consult
one or two p moos very near and dear to me in
New York. Finally, and at the very last hour,
there was a word 'uttered to me, not by any
special member of the Cabinet to which you be
long, but by the authority which it possesses,
to the effect that my acting as had been sug
gested was a personal request, and would be
considered as a personal favor. In three min
utes I decided' that, without consulting any
body, I shouldembark as a volunteer to ac
complErh what might be possible on the other
side of the. Atlantic in favor of the country to
which I belong.
" What occurred on the other side I think it
would be, at present, improper (or me to make
public. lam not cm tain that any word, or act
or influence of mine has had the slightest effect
in preventing either England or France from
plunging into the unhappy divisions that have
threatened the tArion of these once prosperous
States. On the other band, I may say that no
day—'io hour even— was spent in Europe in
which I did not, according , to opportunity, la
bor for peace between Europe and America.
So far that peace has not been disturbed. But
let America be prepared. There is no love for
the United States on the other side of the wa
ter. Generally speaking, on the other side of
the Atlantic the United States are ignored, if
not despised ; treated in conversation in the
same contemptuous language as we might em
ploy towards the inhabitants of the Sandwich
Islands, or Washington territory, or Vancou
ver's Island, or the settlements of the Bed Riv
er, or of the Hudson's Bay territory.
"This may be considered very unpolished,
almost unchristian language proceeding from
the peu of a Catholic archbishop. But, my
dear Governor, it is unquestionably true, and
lam sorry that it is so If you, in Washing
ton, are not able to defend yourselves in case of
need, I do not see where, or from whet sonrce,
you can expect friendship or protec ion. Since
my return I made a kind of familiar address to
my people, but not for them exclusively; in
St. Patrick's Cathedral. Some have called it
not a sermon, but a discourse, and even a war
blast, in favor. of blood spilling. Nothing of
that kind could be warranted by a knowledge
of my natural temperament or of my ecclesias
tical training. From the slight correspondence
between us, you can bear me witness that I
pleaded in every direction for the preservation
of peace, so long as the slightest hope of its
preservation remained. When all hope of this
kind passed away Iwas for a vigorous prosecution
of our melancholy war, so that one side or the other
should find itself in the ascendencye."

August, unanimously adopted 'a resclution,
"That ministers of the Gospel throughout the
State be requested to preach, on the first Sunday

As the Convent inn id..pted no means to make
its wishes on the -obi t kuown to yuu, other
than the publica oi the minutes of its pro
ceeding., I have taken the liberty, in this
manner, to invite ynur allention to it.
At all limes the due training of the young is
of great importance, and the relation to it of
the Christian ministers is plain and intimate.
In the present unhappy juncture of our national
affairs, rsgarding the future through the uncer
tain light of toe present, this importan e is
vastly increased, and the relations of your body
to it seems to become iu the same proportion
The wishes of the Convention are therefore
cordially commended to your 'favorable cousid
oration, with the hope that you will simulta.
nrously add your prayers to the Father of Light
that He will at this time especially bless the
cause of general education,
and so guide the
efforts ot all tritrusted.with its care, that the
youths of the land may become Christian citi
zens ot a united and prosperous Republic.
