REBEL VESSELS BUILDING IN ENG
LAND -CORROBORA7ION OF GENERAL
The Patriot this morning denies, or rather
attempts to discredit the reports brought to this
country by Gen. Cameron, to the effect that
British shipwrights were engaged in construct
ing an iron clad fleet, which would be placed
at the command of the rebel government.
Since then, the files of English newspapers have
came to hand, from which we are able to gather
the strongest corroboration of all that Gen.
Cameron reported in this connection since his
return from Europe. Among these files, the
London Morning Star takes strong ground in
favor of stopping the work on rebel vessels now
being constructed in English ship yards at all
bewails. We quote from the Star ae follows :
" It is known, however, that as many as nin
other ships are being built or equipped in British har
bors for the service of the Confederates. If they
were to serve simply end strictly as vessels of
war—if they were to be empt .yed in an attempt
to break the blockade, to I ecover New Orleans,
to fight the Fecierale in the Southern rivers, or
whet legitimate acts of warfare—they would,
n vertheless, be subject to arrest and detention.
They would come clearly within the prohibition
of acts tending to aid and assist either bellige
The Star, in referring to the rebe.-amer
"Alabama," which was also fitted ant in an
English shipyard, further says:
" This Alabama and her sister furies are no
better than corsairs. They are designed for a
species of se, vice now disclaimed and condemned
by all civilized nations. The maritime Powers
of Europa have denounced privateering. The
United States desired to retinunce also the right

the Patriot to delude the people that the rebels
are not receiving English all and spmyathy.
It also confirms every word that Gen. Cameron
uttered on this i-übject since his return to his
THE STATE OE SOUTH CAROLINA DR
TO B. B. DENNIS
In a rebel mail recently captured between
Charleston and Gh orgetown, by a boat's crow
which land. d and caught the mail carrier, the
following curious document was found. It was
addre4sed to "B. B. Dennis, Esq., South Santee
P. 0., Charleston Distri, t, S 0.," and is, as will
be perceived, a statement of an a: count of Mr
Dennis against the state for whipping certain
negroes. It aflords a carious picture of the
boasted civilization of the slave states. Why
the Negroes were whipped dots not appear ; but
they seem to have received their punishment
on public and not private account :

EDITOR OF TElt TZLEORAFH.
There are those who still prate of compromise
in our great quarrel. To such we commend the
following strong passage from the Westminster
Review —the logical conclusion of a very able
review of the whole question :
" There is no possible ground of compromise ;
these the Americans themselves have long since
exhausted. The principles at stake have now
come face to taco ; they do not admit of media
tion. The south have taken to the sword, and
have but hastened the inevitable doom of that
netitution in whose defence they have drawn
" These the Americans have ling since ex
hausted," most truly says the reviewer. All
our compromises, however well intended, where
the great principles of the rights of man were
involved, have been unfortunate ; and now we
are called upon to face Hat: naked and tremen
dous issue, enormously magnified by these very
TWO OF THE ELEMENTS AY WORK IN
Two of the elements at work in this war, are
not sufficiently recognized or rewarded by toe
government, and until Mile is done, we of
course cannot hope for that permanent success
which can alone insure the peace and safety of
a union of the states These elements are ope
rating in different localities, one in the north,
which derives its force and fury from the
passions and resentments of old Demo
cratic hacks, who are strenuously labor
ing to make the war for the Union unpopular
with the masses of the free states. The tories
of the Revolution did not labor a; earnestly for
George the IV as do the tories of Democracy
struggle for King Jeff. I. Ridicule, misrepre
sentation, falsehood and exaggeration are all
employed by the tory Democratic press and
leaders, to render the war for the Union un
popttlar with the masses. At the beginning of
the rebellion, the policy of the Democratic
party was that of openly aiding the conspiracy
to success. James Buchanan and a majority of
his cabinet so endeavored to shape his admin
istration. Under the same influence, and with
the protection of the Democratic party, the
army and navy were made truculent to,treason,
until the President of the United States was
forced to confess thut he did not possess the
military strength to enforce the law- of which
ha was the sworn executor. This open aid of
rebellion—this premeditated encouragement 01
treason—this prostitution of all the powers
and resources of government to the uses and
control of traitors, was only arrested and
thwarted by the mighty uprising of the people.
Before that display of the popular indignation
and strength of the American people, the polit
ical sympathizers with and open abettors of
treason in the loyal states, were forced to give
way. Open aid of the rebellion was changed
fur it well organized and almost successful pur
pose of making the war into which the govern
went was forced to crush treason, unpopular.
'I his is now the policy of the Democratic party.
Finding that it is dangerous to give duvet aid
to their traitor political allies, and shrinking
with cowardly instincts and selfish love of lire
from a manly espousal of a cause in which
all their hopes for power are centered, the
policy of the Democratic leaders is to render
the war unpopular with the masses of the
north. If they succeed in this, of course
they succeed in their latent purpose of giv
ing aid and encouragement to the rebel
lion. If they can withdraw the confidence
of loyal men from the administration, of course
they create faith in and attraction and support
for the rebellion. If the Patriot and Union issue
cessful in denouncing the acts and the objects
made necessary for the establishment of the au
thority of the government where it is now
reviled and rejected, of course the government
will continue to lose in strength and diminish
in authority, until long before the Constitu
tional term of the present administration has
expired, the government will fall an easy prey
to the rebellion. This is one of the elements to
which we allude. If the government do, s not
devise some measure to arrest this influence—if
the people do not open their eyes to the danger
which this element is daily eroding, the con
sequences will not he difficult to describe. We
will soon have no government if this influence
is allowed to work out its purpose. In their mad
effort to beggar, and embarrass and destroy the
administration of Abraham Lincoln, the Dem
ocratic leaders will not be satisfied until they
have succeeded in making this war ii npopular, of
pulling down the entire fabric of the govern
ment, of spreading ruin and desolation and dis
may over all the loyal states. Let the govern
ment be advised and act on this notorious and
unmistakable effort to make the war fur the
Union unpopular in the loyal states.
The other element to which we allude, and
which has been steadily and earnestly at work
ever since the rebellion was precipitated,without
receiving any notice at the hands of the gov
ernment, is the influence which .s striving to
render the war against the Union unpopular in
the rebel states. Martyrdom for the Union—
suffering for the government—sacrifice for free
dom, are now the order of the day. The Union
men of the South daily force the traitors to the
worst work, that they may point to such excess
and the outrage, and thus render the war against
the government unpopular. No people ever
suffered so severely for a government, as have
the Union men of the South. They know what
are the causes of the rebellion, They have de
dared against these causes in Delaware and Mis
souri, and if the effort were permitted and op
portunity afforded, the same verdict which pro
nounced in favor of emancipation, in favor of
confiscation, in the border slave states, would
be rendered by the loyal men , in all the slave
states. All that is wanted on the part of the
government is to assist the loyal men of the
South in rendering the rebellion unpopular,
arid prevent the traitors and dough-faces of the
loyal states from making the struggle for the
Union and the government odious. Of course
this cannot be done without rigorous means on
the one band and vigorous operations on the
other. The sympathies of northern dough-face
Democrats have already gone too far in fa
vor of this rebellion. The outspoken, una
dulterated language of treason such as that
with which the Patriot teems this morning,
must be crushed out or choked out or fought
out, even if it drenches the streets of every
loyal state capital with blood, or these capitals
will become the homes of Governors appointed
by the dictates of the Southern Confederacy.
We must put down this effort that is seeking to
render the war for the Union unpopular in the
loyal states. We must back up and encourage
the struggles of those who are nobly sacrificing
personal. interests that they may render the
war against the union unpopular in the South.
If the government neglects this stern duty,
sterner necessities may ere long suggest to the
people still sterner means far the preservation
of their liberties and their homes.
THE CHANGE OF Basa.—New owners bring new
laws. Gen. Burnside has changed his base of
operations from the Shenandoah to Aquia creek.
The change gives a great advantage, opening
as it does a level road to Richmond, which is
but sixty miles distant from our advance, and
giving the left of our moving columns the pro
tection of the river Rappahannock. Instead of
being flanked by the troops of " Stonewall "
Jackson, Gen. Burnside now has him in front ;
and the latest accounts say that that pa'tisan
leader is now headed southward. Thus at pre
sent everything looks well ; only sixty miles
lying between the Union army and the rebel
capital, with an almost level country over
which to advance.
Ptimovithinia Cloth) Cdegraptb hurstrap /fternoon, Novembet 20, 1862
Commissioner Boutwell gives it as his opinion
that the revenue coming through his depart
meut will average thirty millions per month,
or at the rate of three hundred and sixty mil
lions of dollars a year. Allowing $22,000,000
loyal population, who will have to pay this tax,
gives about $l5 for every man, woman and child
to pay. The internal tax revenue of Great
Britain, $200,000,000, is about $7 per head.
From this it appears we are carrying a heavier
weight of taxation than Great Britain, and if
this income can be sustained, (and of this there
seems to be no donkt,) we can carry on the war
to an almost indefinite extent. We have al
ready seen the end of borrowing, and the na
tional debt has reached its maximum. The
income of the Government will about equal its
expenditures, and we shall be able to do what
almost no other country in modem times has
attempted, viz: carry on a war with a military
force in the field, and a first class navy on the
sea, without borrowing of either foreign coun
tries or our own citizens.
The Economist speaking on this subject says:
Thig fact cannot have its appropriate
effect on the securities of the National Govern
ment. There is now no danger of any depreci
ation of United States bonds through any frame
exctssive issue. The interest on the securities
already issued is sure of payment, and our bonds
are as good an investment as the stock market
can ..ffer. It may well be worth the considera
tion of Government, whether in this satisfactory
state of our finances something sh uld not be
done to limit the further issue of Treasury notes.
It is highly desirable the precious metals should
again be put into circulation, but so long as the
present amount of Government paper continues
in circulation, there seems no chance for spoon
lators doing otherwise than boarding up gold
and silver, producing thereby an enormous pre
mium, and in the same proportion advancing
the value of all commodities, to the great in
convenience of trade and private living. Mr.
Chase would do the coui.try a great service by
defeating the gold speculators, could he hit on
so no plan for promoting a p trtial conversion
of Treasury notes into United States bands.
HORRIBLE TRAGEDY IN PHILADELPHIA.
A Man Murdered in His Own ,House.
ARREST OF THE ALLEGED MURDERER
One of the most horrid and brutal murders
ever perpetrate d was committed last evening,
in the Third ward. The name of the victim is
Thomas Williamson, aged about 45 years. He
was married, and resided with his wife and
three children, two boys and a girl, in Magil
toles court, running north from Bate street,
between Broad end Thirteenth
Williamson was a discharged volunteer, but
had recently enlisted. He was a man much
addicted to drinking, and lived iu a quarrelsome
manner with his family. He had just been
discharged from Ho) amen ing prison on Mon
day last, where he bad been placed by his wife
for maltreatment of her and the children.
The murder was committed between eight
and nine o'clock, At that time, the neighbors
heard loud words and a scuffling in the hone,
as it a fight was in progress. Shortly after, a
man was seen to leave the house, and take a
hasty .:eparture. The neighbors, suspecting
that all was not light, procured the assistance
of the police, and entered the primisee. Upon
opening the door a must horrible spectacle pre
The room was a small one, about eight feet
square, and forms the back building, first floor.
Totally unpapered and uncarpeted, the white
wash peeling in dingy flakes from the wall and
ceiling, and illuminated solely by the fitful
glare of a solitary candle, the gloom of the
apartment only rendered the scene more horri
fying. As the light was elevated and the
sickly beams shone through the close atmos
phere, they finally lit upon the prostrate figure
of the murdered man—upon a pool of ea imsou
and coagulated blood, and upon a yawning
gash, deep, end wide, and gory. The wound
was straight across the abdomen, and consisted
of two fearful gashes on each side, connected
by a gaping cut, which appeared almost to
sever the trunk in twin.
The deepest gash was on the left side. It
presented the appearance of the instrument of
death having been plunged frantically in,
wrenched around, and then drawn across the
stomach. Immense force must have been used
to thus cut through both the clothing and
flesh. Tbe legit side, the entrails protruding,
presented a hideously sickening sight. The
expression of the features was, perhaps, more
appalling than anything else. It spoke of a
desperate struggle ; of hatred, horror and ago
ny, all blended and confused, and finally set
tling into the rigid state of death. The fixed
and terra glaring eyes, the open jaws, set con
vulsively in the last throes, the sepulchral and
clammy complexion, were the crowning horrors
of the occasion. The deceased was in. his shirt
sleeves, and had on a pair of army pants.
His limbs were slender and the features ema
ciated. A small stove on the east side of the
room was upset, and the ashes strewed the floor.
A table and a few rickety chairs completed the
furniture. The walls were adorned with some
hundreds of small pictures.
The disarranged appearance of the furniture
gave every indication of a most violent strug
gle having taken place It was stated by the
neighbors that the disturbance commenced In
the third story, and extended thence to the
first floor, there to terminate so fearfully.
Upon entering the house the wife of the
murdered man was met. She stated that her
husband was in his present condition from
having fallen over the stove. After having
been closely questioned, and giving a very un
satisfactory explanation, she, with the two
youngest children, was taken into custody. The
oldest child, a boy of sixteen years, was absent
at the theatre at the time of the tragedy.
Officers Eckhard and Irwin, of the Second
police district, were present, and immediately
set to work to ferret out the guilty party,
From information given by the neighbors, a
man named Patrick Farragan was suspected of
being implicated in the affair. While the offi
cers were in search of Farragan, he made his
appearance in Kate street, and was Immediate
This was about half-past eleven o'clock or
three bouts after the murder. Upon arresting
him a search was immediately male ; a comb
and a porte-monnaie were found on his person.
It was also discovered that he bore under his
right eye two fresh scratches, as i incurred in a
struggle. He likewise had several drops of
blood upon his shirt bosom.
He was directly conveyed to the station
house, and locked up for further developments.
Farragan is about 45 years of age, a widower,
and resides at No. 1111 Carpenter street. He
is by trade a carpenter. The neighbors state
that Farragan has been in the habit of frequent
ing the house of the deceased during the latter's
absence, and with being on terms of intimacy
with his wife.
We were present at the time of Farragan's ar
rest, and upon the officers seizing him, he did not
seem the least confused or display any signs of
fear. When questioned in regard to when he
received his bloody eye, he answered that be
" didn't get it at all," and when told that he
must be arrested, made no resistance.
An umbrella coveted with blood was likewise
picked up in Williamson's house, and taken
in charge by the officers The wife, when ques
tioned in regard to this article, stated that it
belonged to her husband. The investigation
of the coroner may prove differently. Alto
gether, this is a most dark and bloody deed,
and will surely meet with retribution.—Press

AHANDSOME HEAD OF HAIR is a crown
of glory. With proper care and culture
it will last as a protection to the head as long
as the nails do to the fingers, or the eyelashes
to the eyes. SMILING'S AMBROSIA is the only
article yet discovered that will bring about the
desired results. It is a preparation the result
of science and experiment ; the science point
ing out what was needed, and experiment find
ing the required properties in certain roots, barks,
and herbs. It has consumed a long time in its
preparation, has been tested by persons of most
undoubted reliability in this city, and is by them
pronounced perfect, and the only satisfactory
article, and is now offered to the public. The
proprietors, determined to give it the most
thorough tests, practical and chemical, and now
certain that it will make the hair grow luxuri
antly on Bald Heads, Preventing Grayness and
Baldness, Reinvigorating and Beautifying the
Hair, rendering it soft and glossy.
DR. SINEEILIBG'S AMBROSIA is a stimulating,
oily extract of roots, barks, and herbs, and,
aside from its neatness, permanency, and gloss,
it is medically adapted to preserve and add to
the beauty of the hair. The only article yet dis
covered that will Cure the Disease of the Scalp, and
cause the Bair to Grow.
This is to certify that about eighteen months
ago, 1 commenced using STERLING'S AMBROSIA.
My hair was short, thin and rapidly falling out.
I had tried many Hair Tonics, Invigorators, &c.,
without receiving any benefit. Sohn after using
the Ambrosia, my hair ceased falling out, and
commenced growing so rapidly as to astonish
me. Now my hair is thick, soft, and glossy,
and is five feet four inches in length—when let
down, reaching to the floor. This wonderful
result I attribute solely to the use of STERLING'S
AMBROSIA, as since I commenced using it I have
applied nothing else to my hair.
