Wednesday Afternoon, November 98, 1869
In accordance with the customary proclama
tion of the Governor of Pennsylvania, to-morrow
will be observed by the people thereof, as an
occasion of thanksgiving and praise to Almighty
Get], for the benefits which we have derived
from His blessings and continued mercy. What
we have suffered during the past year—what we
have lost as a nation, as a people or as indi
viduals, may be traced back to causes for which
we are alone responsible, and which we could
have averted, had the spirit which God ever
dietetes to the human race, been acknowledged
and suffered to prevail. For the ills which we
suffer io political changes and national convul
sion, the nation Itself is responsible. The lack
of thrift and the encouragement of treason have
combined to work us evil. If we admit any-
thing, to-morrow, as we render thanks to Al
mighty God, we must acknowledge this fact..
And while we are doing this, acknowledging
our baseness, admitting that we alone are re
spotisible for what we have suffered and still
continue to suffer, gratitude and truth force the
concession that whatever of success or prosper
ity, of h ppiness or health, we have been lJessed
with dieing the past year, the credit alone be
longs to God. Nothing that we omitted to do—
nothing that we have done, contributed in the
least to such results. By diligence we may
have gathered, but never produced, prosperity.
By virtue and its attending blessings, we may
have secured but not created happiness. Such
production and creation are alone the work of
d --and ior these we must tender thanks to
Him, if we would be just to ourselves and grate
ful fur Hid beneficence. ',there are many other
reasons why we should acknowledge our special
indebtedness to the Great Disposer ot Events.
Although the country is rent by civil war, and
&Meted by the evils which follow in its train,
we have escaped many of the ills which we had
reason to apprehend. We have not been visited
by the pestilence which it was feared would at
trek our armies in their southern encampments,
and the ravages which mark the scene of mil
itary operations, have not desolated our homes
or hearths. We have reason to be thankful for
reill va. lb positive blessings. A plentiful bar
veSt bee crowned the labors of the husbandman
anti averted smelly lrom the land. There 18
reason to hope that the war in which we are
engaged will eventuate in the restoration of
the Union on a more imperishable basis. The
people of both sections have seen the error 4
their ways, and the terrible evils which have
resulted from a disregard of Constitutional obli
gations and the cultivation of a spirit of sec
tional animosity. From the conflict of arms
and the heroic qualities displayed on both sides'
they have I. armed mutual respect, which is the
best basis of National amity For these bles
sings of the past and hopes of the future, we
have reason to feel and acknowledge a debt of
gratitude to Him who can bring good out of
evil, and in whose hands are the destiniee of
net 1011 d.
Tne GIMP &me, which is to decide the
fate of Richmond, it is now believed will be
fought near Fredericksburg, Va. The contest
for Richmond will be the most severe since the
rebellion assumed ehape and armed power.
The military situation may change totally in a
day, but the opinion among officers of a high
character both iu the army and iu Washington
city, is that the entire rebel force in Virginia,
or at least all that can be spared from other
points, will concentrate not far from Feeder
ickeburg, and the great battle which is to de
cide the fate of Richmond will be fought in the
vicinity of the former place. A Washington
correspondent of the New York Evening Post
says that the railroad to Fredericksburg is not
yet repaired so that trains can run upon it, and
at the last account there was a great lack of
foruge in the army. Horses and mules were in
danger of starvation, while the troops were
obliged to rely upon hard bread and pork for
their subsistence. Transportation by wagons
from Aquia creek is difficult, if not impossible.
In a few days more, however, the Army of the
Potomac will get beyond the transportation
difficulties of the present hour, and will be
ready to fight the greatest battle of the war,
for such it will undoubtedly be. The contest
for Richmond is to be the most severe we have
seen since the rebellion broke out. There is no
longer any doubt upon this point. Wherever
the rebels make their first stand iu defence of
Richmond, there the great, and probably the
decisive battle of this whole war will be fought.
Gen. Halleck is putting furth all his abilitiee
and strength for the grand final struggle, and
Gen. Burnside, the immediate commander of
the troops who are to tight, is in perfect aecord
with the Gieneral•in•Chief.
STRIKING IN THE BIGHT PLACR.—AII the news
from the West exhibit the great fact that the
Administration know where and how to strike
at the vitals of the rebellion. Troops are pour
ing down the Mississippi. General Grant has
been reinforced, and the expedition of General
McClernend is on the move. The force under
General Banks, with which Texas is to be liber
ated, is being made ready at the proper ports.
The Administration will take good care of
Richmond, but they will also take good care of
the southwest. Everything is moving well,
unless all the signs are deceptive. The Wash
ington city Republican says that the people may
be assured that stunning blows are to be struck,
and at the right piece.
A Ton mama IRS NATIONAL TAX LAW.—The
Commissioner of Internal Revenue has decided
hat 2,240 pounds constitute a ton in all Mt
under the Excise law. The decision is impor
tant to iron manufacturers and others. -
MOVEMENTS IN VIRGINIA
We see more to encourage us in the principal
military movement now in progress in Virginia,
than in any which has taken place in that
quarter rinse the war began. Perhaps we are
better satisfied with it than former ones, be
cause we think we can understand it better.
Heretofore, it seemed to be the impression, that
to take Richmond, it was necessary to advance
upon it in some other way than the direct one.
Hence all of our Generals who were entrusted
with the duty of taking that place went about
the job by marching off in some direction quite
different from the one leading to Richmond.
This was strategy, we presume. McClellan
went round by Fortress Monroe and up the
Peninsula ; Pope, when he made his demon
stration, described an extensive circuit by way
of Gordonsville. Neither of them seem to
have been disposed to take the straight and
direct road, which any ordinary person, if about
to make the journey from Washington to Rich
mond, would take. Certainly the shortest,
and from all accounts, the best road between
the two places, is by way of Fredericksburg.
This route, it would seem, Burneide has at last
resolved upon. He appears to have reached
the conclusion that such strategy as guided the
movements of his predecessors is played out,"
and that the best way to Richmond is by the
shortest and easiest road. Fredericksburg, It will
be seen from the map, is a1,n04, on a straight
line between Washington and Richmond.
The reason assigned for not taking this route
at first, was the difficulty of matching a large
army overland, and keeping open the commu
nication in the rear. But we find that the con
federates experienced no difficulty In marching
their armies from Richmond to the neighbor
hood of Washington, overland, and had no dif
ficulty on account of their means of COMMUZIE
cation. Why our army, larger in point of
numbers, and better equipped, and better
supplied with the means of transportation,
could not as well go at er the same ground, in
the opposite direction, Is something which yet
Another circumstance attending former cis
cumlocutory movements on Richmond, was
that they necessarily Involved a division of the
army into two or more parts- one to move
"round Robin Hood's barn" on Richmond, and
the other or others, to stand between Richmond
and Washington, to secure the safety of the
The first thing Burnside does, upon taking
the command, is to move his army in one body,
upon the direct 'line toward Richmond. This
we can understand. It looks rational. It may
exhibit very little strategy, but it does appear
to exhibit considerable common sense. One
thing is very certain—it can't tarn out worse
than former movements, and does give us hope
for much better results.
THB Coturrav will rejoice at the.fact that, the
government has ordered the rslease of all milt
tary prisoners, or those who have been arrested
for interfering in enlistments, opposing the
draft, or in any way seeking to embarrass the
government. In time of war, doubtless, it le
sometimes necessary, (or the safety of the goy
' ernment or for the security of its operations, to
arrest summarily and without the usual prcf
ceases, persons who, the authorities have reason
to believe, are contemplating disloyal acts, or
who have been guilty of such. At the same
time nothing so quickly imperils the popularity
of an administration or injures the confidence
of the people in its ability, its strength or its
honesty of purpose as the use of this poser?
Freemen rightly look with strong dislike an 4
suspicion dpon such arbitrary acts ; and it is
sign of wisdom in the government, that it time
orders at the earliest moment the release of the
persona it has found necessary to arrest. The
Administration, by this set, says to the people's
that it dislikes as much as they, the system
which the peril of public interests has forced it
to use ; and it gives a pledge for the future ta
make no more such arrests, except under' pres
sure of the clearest and most absolute necessity
In time of war the government has a perfect
right to arrest suspected persons, and not only
to incarcerate but prosecute known traitorsi
This right, we suppose, the authorities at *aslt:
ington do not mean to surrender, and the
rebels among us need not presume upon this
clemency to make themselves conspicuous in

ARMY OF THE POTOMAC
ALL QUIET UP TO YESTERDAY AFTIORNOON
Jackson Believed to be Going to Richmond as
a Reserve for the Rebel Armies in Virginia.
Fifteens who left the vicinity of Fredericks
burg this afternoon, who have arrived here,
state that all was quiet up to that time. It
had commenced to rain, and a severe storm
was expected. The expected bombardment •of
the place had not commenced at 2 o'clock, and
it was not known when it would. The rebels
are in strong force in Fredericksburg and back
of the town, and are anxiously watching our
every movement. From the large camp files
seen every night it is shoughtthey have a large
force in this vicinity. Prisoners captured state
that many are confident that Stonewall Jack
son would add his forces to theirs ; while others
hold the opinion that he will be stationed at
Richmond as a kind of reserve, to sixtior eittar
Lee's army, or the one menaced by bur fcirces
at Suffolk. The latter opinion is More preva
lent than the former oue, and I Shonld • not.
be surprised, from present appearance, that it
would be the correct one ; especially in view of
the fact that the rebil government have great
confidence in Jackson's executing rapid move
ments, and that they think he is the best man
for an emergency.

started with his whole force for Richmond, by
the way of Port Royal, leaving only a regiment
of cavalry at Winchester, who were Instructed

FOR THE HAIR.
AI HANDSOME 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. STERLING'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
cedam that it will make the hair mil - 1w luxuri
antly on nem Jedaus, X / ex.ting • U raYneek-....4
Baldness, Reinvigorating and Beautifying the
Hair, rendering it soft and glossy.
Faxatiso'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 yd dis
covered that will Cure the Disease of the Scalp, and
cause the Hair to Grow.
This is to certify that about eighteen months
ago, I commenced using &ammo's AungostA.
My hair was short, thin and rapidly falling out.
I had tried many Hair Tonics, Invigorators, &c.,
without receiving any benefit. Soon 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 Srsauso's
AMBROSIA, as since I commenced using it I have
applied nothing else to my hair.
