FACTS AND QUESTIONS.
Lee's array cheered when they heard.of Dl.'-
Clellan's nomination, not when they heard of
the fall of Atlanta. What was the cause of
the difference ?
The eopperbeads ran up the flags 4n City
Hall, New - York, when they heard of M'Clel
lan's Aoytiltation, not when they heard of the
fall of Atlanta. Was the cause of the differ
ewe the same ?
When news reached London that Pd'Clellan's
nomination was certain, the rebel loan went
up three per cent. Why was this?
On the day when Sheridan's victory over
Early was announc4za -.Union man asked a
.111I'Clellanite if he heard the good newd. The
reply, of the latter was: "D—n your' i news."
Whatlnuikes him feel so?
Rebel ifrigoners marching through Wash
ington cheered Ai'Gianni and groaned for
Lincoln. What was •the cause of th 4 differ
once ? .
When the news of Early's defeat was posted
on theM . ls.- Journal of Gonimeree bulletin in
Wall street i :the crowd 'that gathered; round
it cheered.fgr ],'resident Linpoln. What made
them do it,
When tlieiewh . Of the fall of Atlanta teaches
London, Ihe'reliel loan will go dovin, and
when the )203WE1 Acif Sheridan's victory arrives
there will, be a 'further fall.
- Why should there be?
Are we justified in ascribing like effects to
like causes? If we find that M'Clellen's suc
cess raises the. spirits of rebels at the South,
and rebel sympathizers in England, and of the
,sham Democracy here, while a rebel defeat
lOWers the hopes of these sympathizers, and
that of the 'sham Democracy, is it riot clear
.that the cause of the rebellion and that of thd
copperheads are the same?.
Are not the words of thtißichmond Exam
ine# triie, when it says, "Every defeat, of Lin
coln'sforces issues to the advantage ' of Mc-
Are not the words of the Charleston Courier
true, when it says that there is " an intimate
connection" between the armies of the Con
federacy and the 'McClellanites, and that the
victory of the rebels "insures the . success of
McClellan—their•feilure insures his defeat ?"
Where should a . true . patriot stand—with
those whose prospects of success grow bright
er when the flag of their country is trailed in
the dust, and Minter when rebellion grows
weaker, or with those whose victory keeps
even pace with the victorious progress, of their
Country's banner?---with a party between
whom and the rebels seeking to destroy their
country, there is estimate connection,"
or with that on.O.which is hated by every rebel
and every rcbe/A ally, at home or abrioad.

Headquarters Department of the Missouri:—At
daylight our outposts at Ironton were attacked
and forced back to within half a mile of the

get possession of Sheppard's Mountain, and
at 2 P. M., they succeeded in driVing the bat
talion• of the 14th lowa into rifle-pits, and
getting two six-pounder guns into position on
the mountain. The three mountain slopes
overlooking the fort were filled with dis
mounted cavalry. The south front was
threatened by four lines of cavalry, extending
across the valley between the fort and Iron
ton, commanded by .General Marmaduke,
while a column passed around the base of
Sheppard's Mountain and formed at the
Gen. Cabell commanded the dismounted
cavalry on the slope of Pilot Knob. The
rebel troops thus disposed, _a signal of two
guns was fired from the mountain, and the
assault in force moved on our works, came up
in fine style to the ditches, and went back to
the mountain in indecent haste, leaving 1,500
killed and wounded. Among the latter is
General Cabell, one Lieutenant Colonel, two
Captains and two Lieutenants. Our entire
loss is nine killed and sixty wounded.
Yesterday morning at four o'clock we left

NEW YORK, Oct.
A special dispatch to Chicago, from Minne

Rice, dated Sept. 10, states that CaPt. Fisk's
Idaho train had been attacked by the Indians,
and that several of his rear guard and four
emigrants were killed.. ,
The Indians then attacked his Main body
in such numbers that he was cbmPelled to
entrench himself and send. back to.. General
Sully for help. In this running fight twenty
Indians were killed.
The latter expresses tbe opinion that the
whole train will have to return; but Captain
Fisk does not think so.
