The City Connell Exposed
some four weeks ago the City Council wore
importuned by a large meeting of the the
ehailics, laboring and business men of the
city, to pay a bounty from the eity treasury
to every person who would enl st in the Union
armies and credit himself to some of the wards
in the city. The proposition was duly laid
before that body. and vin MEMBEPri of
COUNCIL LEFUSED to comply with the
wishes of their constituents, by a
direct vote on the question. The feel
ing created by this refusal was so intense that
the Council concluded to reconsider the mat
ter at a subsequent meeting. This was done, and
that body resolved to petition the Legislature'
then about to assemble, for authority to bor
row money. Petitions were duly presented
to both Houses, in the Senate by Mr. Fleming,
and in the House by Mr. Allernan. Mr. Al
leman at once requested the Solicitor of the
city to frame such a bill as the Council desired,
indite would have it enacted into a law. The
city authorities refused or neglected to present
such a bill until within three or four days
before the adjournment of the Legislature,
calculating that the Legislature would not act
on the bill at that late day, when more im
portant business would be before them, and
they could then blame the'Legislature or our
members for neglecting the interest of our
Mr. Alleman sae • this plainly, and he deter
mined at once that he would pass the bill. The
bill was duly presented, and passed the House
without that body scarcely knowing its pro
visions. After the bill had passed the House
and was sent to the Senate, it was referred to
the Judiciary Committee, where its provisions
were fully considered, and that committee re
ported it to the Senate with a unanimous
recommendation (except Mr. Fleming) that it
be negatived. When Mr. Fleming discovered
that such vas the disposition of the com
mittee, he c ailed the bill up in the Senate,and
defended it, and asked it as an especial favor
of the Senators to have the bill passed, Seve
ral Senators, however, examined the pro
visions of the bill, and denounced it as the
moist iniquitous measure ever presented to that
body, and that it was of snob a character that
it would never Berme their support. While
many of the Union Senators were disposed to
oblige Mr. Fleming and vote for the bill, he
soon discovered that the leading Copperheads
had been duly informed by the prominent
members of the Copperhead Council that
they really did not want the bill passed,
but that it was only presented to deceive
the laboring men of the First, Fourth, Fifth
and Sixth wards, (the Second and Third
wards having their quotas full,) and all the
leading mei of that party voted against
the bill under the lead of Lamberton, Cly
mer, Ste. The bill, was defeated by a vote of
twelve yeas to nineteen nays, Mr. Fleming.
our Senator, voting for it. This ended the
career of the bill presented by the Council.
If the Council had been sincere in the mat
ter, a simple bill giving the city authority to
borrow money for bounty purposes would
have passed both Houses unanimously, and
the mode of taxation would have been devised
afterwards by Council; but this was not th
intention. Council never designed to pay boun
ties, and the object was fully accomplished
by its action in the matter.
We give this impartial history of the trans
action in order to correct the impression that
the Legislature was at fault. It was the sole fault
of the Council, and every sensible man knows
that if it had taken the matter in hand two
months ago, the quota of the city would have
been filled by paying $2.00 bounty to ea-h re_
emit. As it stands now the Second and Third
wards have their quotas filled, while the other
wards will be subjected to the draft. Nearly
all the men have' volunteered out of those
wards, and it will take every man liable to
draft• in them now to fill the quota required.
For this state of affairs they can thank their
efficient members of Council, and we leave
this subject to them. The able opinion of
Judge Pearson, on the case stated before the
Court, will be found in another part of this
paper, and u r call the attention of our readers
to the same.

The news of the Vermont election sends a
thrill of joy tlifrough the heart of the nation,
and wiU do much to increase the indomitable
valor of the brave men who,are now engaged
in adenth txugee.wikarp!d !reitors. ,But

ship, as the newspapers in the pay , of the rebel
cause do not make a single allusion to the
result. Is it possible that the "tyranny of
Abe Lincoln" has developed itself in a new
shape, and thus forbids the copperhead press to
publish loyal victories. Come, secret sympa
thizer, let us have a how] on , this subject. 'You
certainly are entitled to the benefit of the
Vermont election news, and therefore we ask,
why did you not publish the feet? Give the

Will there be a Draft 1
Secretary Seward, in the coma of a speech
delivered at Auburn, N. Y., on Satardity even
ing last, referred to the probability of there
being no draft made to fill up the army. Mr.
Seward may be correct, but we question the
policy of a Cabinet officer indulging in such
"talk" at this time, because there are thou
sands of men now enlisting to escape con
scription, who, if they are assured no draft
is to bo made,. will refuse to volunteer. The
following is the paragraph from Mr. Seward's
speech on this subject:
We shall have no draft, because the army
it being reinforced at the rate of five to ten
thousand men per daY by volunteers.
—There is no doubt of the fact, that the
extent of volunteering is very great, but there
-5 still another fact in this connection which
high cabinet facers have no opportunity to
understand. It is this: In many districts,
where a bitter opposition to the Government
is cultivated, leading politicians are actively
engaged in discouraging volunteering, with
the hope that the draft will be indefinitely
posttoned. Hence, such men should have
no such assurance as that given by Mr. Sew
ard. In those districts the draft should be en
forced sternly and impartially. Again, there
are localities in this State where men have
armed to resist the draft. Such desperadoes
as these, should the draft be postponed, will
claim the credit of having intimidated the
authorities, and forced them to abandon their
position on this subject. We cannot afford at
this time, to allow the enemies of the Gov
ernment such opportunities of congratula
tion; and hence we sincerely deplore the in
discretion thus indulged by a Cabinet officer.

Suoh is the opinion of glorious fighting Joe
Hooker, in reference to M'Clellan's operations
to capture Riohmoad, during his campaigns in
Virginia. When Gen. Hooker made the above
statements, he was under oath, and delivered
the truth. Thus it is established on the oath
of a gallant soldier, that if Gen. M'Clellan
had anted with reasonable celerity. Richmond
could have been reduced, and the dreadful
loss of life which has since been incurred to
capture the rebel stronghold, would not have
become necosary. Hence we can justly at
tribute to the lack of ability,the short-comings
or the insane indifference of Nl,Glellan to
conquer,the orphanage and widowhood which
now fill the land on account of the losses in
the Army of the Potoinao. And yet the par
tisane of BrOlellau claim that his merits as a
soldier entitle him to high civil elevation.

We find the following statement about IW.
Clellan's retreat from Malvern Hill, in the
Rev. J. J. Marks' able history of "The Penin
sula Campaign in Virginia." It is a portion of
history which will be difficult for General
11'Clelan to explain. The statement is the
more important just now from the fact that
the Rey. Mr. Marks wrote his history imme
diately after DrOlellan abandoned the Penin
It was not written for any political effect, nor
by a politican but by an army chaplain, who
was a faithful witness of the scenes which he
describes. We copy it now for the benefit of
the people who are invited to vote for the
sweet-scented General who ran away from a
victory w ich the glorious old Army of the
Potomac had won. Mr. Marks says:
The battle was over, but the cannonading
still continued, and shells and balls o
every kin I tore through the woods in a cease
less whirlwind of fury. In the meantime
thousands of the Confederates fled in the
wildest disorder from the scene, and hid them
selves in swamps and hollows ; soldiers with
out guns, horsemen without caps and swords,
came to the hospitals in, the battle-field of
Glendale, and reported that their regiments
and brigades were swept away, and they alone
were "escaped to tell the tale."
It is one of the strangest things in this week
of disaster that General M'Clellan ordered a
retreat to Harrison's Landing, six miles down
the James river, after he had gained so de
cided a victory. When this order was receiv
ed by the impatient and eager army, conster
nation and amazement overwhelmed our pa
triotic and ardent hosts. Some refused to
obey the command. Gen. Martindale shed
bars of shame.
The brave and chivalrous Kearney said in
the presence of many officers:--J, Philip Kear
ney, an old soldier, enter my solemn protest
' against this order for retreat —we ought, in
stead of retreating, to follow up the enemy
and take Richmond. And in full view of all
the responsibility of such a declaration, I say
to you all, such an order can only be prompted
by cowardice or treason."
.And with all, hopelessness and despair suc
ceeded the flush of triumph. In silence and
gloom our victorious army commenced retir
ing from an enemy utterly broken, scattered,
and panic-stricken. Awl whin:llore 'was not a foe within miles

CAVALRY AFFAIR AT SNICKER'S GAP
DEFEAT OF THE REBELS
WASHINOTON, Sept. 7.--On Monday night a
battalion of the Rhode Island cavalry, of Tor
bert's command, while operating in the neigh
borhood of Snicker a Gap, came upon a force
of rebel cavalry, who were coming this way,
and a considerable fight ensued. Captain Bliss
was in command of our men, and Major
Cole, of Georgia, was in command of the rebel
force, which considerably outnumbered ours.
The passage of the Gap was warmly contested,
and the rebels were compelled to retire, leiav
lug a captain, a lieutenant. and three privites
dead in our hands; also a number of horses.
On the lappel of the coat of the dead lieu
tenant was a card bearing the name of Alexis

men killed and several wounded. There is a
considerable force of rebel cavalry at both
Ashby's and • Snicker's Gaps. A large body of
rebel cavalry, reported in that neighborhood
a few days ago, has disappeared, leaving a
considerable force at the Gaps, apparently to
watch the movements of Union troops.

Advice from Jonesboro to the 2d inst., were

General Hood's army was then retreating,
with Gen. Sherman's forces hanging closely
on his rear.
The head of the Union column was skir

six miles from Jonesboro. The fighting around
Jonesboro had been very severe, and the
enemy was routed at all points.
On the 30th ult. the 4th and 23d corps struck
the Macon line, five miles beyond East Point.
In the meantime the 15th, 16th a d 17th corps

On the morning of the Ist of September,
the 14th corps marched along the Macon
road, destroying the track for several miles.
In the afternoon "they assaulted the rebel
entrenchments, and, after a desperate con
flict, lasting two hours, drove the enemy out,
taking two batteries (including the celebrated
Loomis battery, taken from us at Chickamau
ga) and some battle flags, Gen. Garen, and an
Hood, finding the situation desperate in At

ly a thousand bales of cotton and eighty-six
wagons laden with ammunition.
At the break of day, otl the 2d, our army
followed in hot pursuit. The object was to
get between flood and Hardee, and cut off
one of them.
The defeat has a paralyzing effect on Hood's
army, and the soldiers and militia are break

WAsEaNtrroN, Sept. 7.
Dr. Lester Lloyd, a Northern man by birth,
who has res;ded in Sairfax county, Va., near
Vienna, for thirteen years past, and who was
captured by Mosby's guerrillas at his home
about three months ago, gives the following
account of t.is experiences and observations :
Irnile on the way to Gord nsville a young
man in the guard of Mosby's men said to Dr.
L.: "We had a fine time with some of the
Yankees the other day. Twelve of us sur
prised seven cavalrymen, who dismounted
and gave up their arms, when we all fired into
them and finished up the lot, taking no pris
oners. We understand that Sheridan hung
some of our men in the Valley a short time
ago, and we e re determined to spare no more
prisoners whom we take with arms in their
After the explosion of the mine in front of
Petersburg a considerable number of Union
soldiers were captured, and eighty , of them
were stripped of their United States uniforms
and clothed in the rebel garb. At the first
fieht on the Weldon railroad those men were
placed in thcifront ranks of the rebels, and so
disposed as ffectnally to deceive our troops,
and by the advantage thus gained, two thou
sand of our men were captured.
These prisoners on their arrival at Rich
mend were paraded between Castle Thunder
and Libby, ordered to throw off their accoutre
ments and divest themselves of part of their
clothes, and then marched to the wretched
quarters assigned to them. Whereupon a gang
of negroesgathered up what they had divested
themselves of and carried them away.
Ho gives a fearful account of the barbarous
and inhuman indignities heaped upon some
of our prisoners by these rebel fiends. They
are confined without inquiry or trial, aryl no
chance given them to refute the offences iebel
malice charges against them.
A week ago last Monday night, a number of
deserters from the Union army arrived in
Richmond, and despite the order of General
Lee that all deserters should be sent to the
interior unharmed, are placed at work; they
were stripped of their clothing, mostly new
and but little worn, and robbed of all their
money. Thirteen hundred dollars in rebel
money and seven hundred in greenbacks were
taken from one of them. They were then
marched off to a place of safA keeping.
The almost universal conclusion in Rich
mond was that if the Danville railroad should
be seized by our forces, they would be cut off
from supplies so effectually, that Richmond
would have to be surrendered. Horses are
much reduced in flesh from the husbanding
of their resources, attributable to the above

per annum—principal and interest both to hu
paid in lawful money.
These notes will be convertible at the option
of the holder at maturity into Si): per cent.
gold bearing bonds, payable not less than five
nor more than twenty years from their date,
as the Government may elect. They will b,
issued in denominations of $5O, $lOO, $506,

The notes will be tcan,mitted to the owner ,
free of transportation charges as soon after

posit as they can be prepared.
As the notes draw interest from August 15,
persons making deposits subsequent to that

of note to date of deposit.
Parties depositing twenty-five thousand dol
lars and upwards for these notes at any one
time will be allowed a commission of one
quarter of one per cent., which will be paid
by the Treasury Department upon the receipt
of a bill for the amount, certified to by the
officer with whom the deposit was made. No
deductions for commissions must be me.,i,

Special Advantages of this Loan.
iT IS A NATIONAL SAITNGS BANK, offning ft
higher rate than any other, and b.st seo.riity.
Any savings bank which pays its depositors
in U. S. Notes, considers that it is paying
in the best circulating medium of the country,
and it cannot pay in anything better, for its
own assets are either in government securities
or in notes or bonds payable in government
It is equally convenient as a temporary or
permanent investment. The notes can al
ways be sold for within a fraction of their
face and accumulated interest, and are the
best security with banks as collaterals for dis
Convertible into a 6 per Cent. 'AO Gold Bond.
In addition to the very liberal interest on
the notes for three years, this privilege of
conversion is now worth about three per cent.
per annum, for the current rate for 5-20 Bonds
is net less than nine per end: premium, and be
fore the war the premium on sin per cent. U.
S. stocks was over twenty per cent. It will
be seen that the actual profit on this loan, at
the present market rate, is not less than , ten
per cent per annum.
Its Exemption 'from State or Blunietpal
But aside from all the advantages we have
enumerated, a special act of Congress exempts
all bonds and Tr easury ?was from local taxation.
On the average, this exemption is worth about
two per cent. per annum, according to fle
rate of taxation in various parts of the country'.
It is believed that no securities offer so
great inducements to lenders as those issued
by the Government. In all other forms of
indebtedness, the faith or ability of private
parties, or stock companies, or separate corn. inanities, only, is pledged or payment, while
the whole property of the country is held to
secure the discharge of all the obligations of
the United States.
While the Government offers the mss
liberal terms for its loans, it believes that the
very strongest appeal will be to the loyalty
and patriotism of the people
