We close the business of the year 1864 to
day. In history the past year will be the
most memorable of any twelve months -since
the Reformers broke the spell which h.d
fallen on the religious world, and by Peir
zeal, purity and achievements, shed 4 ' halo
of real glory on the ' paths of theenations'
progress. We need not go- from/ home for
proof of what we assert. In a fear our own
flagon has made greater strides in glory and
greatness than in all the offlor years of our
existence. Six years aga • we were looked
upon by the governments of the world as a
mere experiment our authority as a nation
being barely recognized, and our system of
rule still viewed as the uncertain experi-
ment of man's attempt at self 7 governmeza.
Two years ago every nation iii Christendom
waited for the near approach of our complete
destruction. It was believed throughaift the
civilized world that the American Unio-n' was
on the brink of ruin, that the claim of self
government was a failure, and that, as a na
tion, the American, people must sooner or
later be absorbed by the governments of the
old world. The emissaries of the slave-hold
ers' rebellion; in Europe, had so farsucceeded•
in gaining the ear of royalty, as to render our
cause exceedingly precarious in that direction.
Aid and comfort from abroad were given to
the rebel effort, until, as we have already
as erted, one year ago the
-cause of the Ameri
can Union was regarded as ahrwt, if not as
entirely hopeless. But twelve Short months
have worked a wondrous change. In that
time our armies and navy have completely
overwhelmed the traitors on the land and the
wave. While these achievements were in
progress, the people at the ballot-box were
winning like victories. In the face of every
possible falsehood which the malevolence of
the political enemy could coin; in disregard
of asserted tyranny, and with a full knowl
edge of the burdens which the war created,
the people declared, at the election in Noveni
ber, that the war should go on while there
was a traitor in the field to oppose the just au
thority of the • Government. That declara
tion constituted a victory against treason
which the traitors themselves have conceded
to be fatal. It established the patriotism of
the people, and with that on a firm basis the
Government need fear no enemy.
The year 1864 closes encouragingly for the,
cause of the Government. Another such a
twelve months of• like events, aid peace will
be undoubtedly restored. We will. enter on
the year 1865 with the army and navy vietori
ons—with the national credit immeasurably
improved—with the rebellion reduced to the
most desperate straits—with the loyal popula
tion of the free States ready to to obey any
call for the support of the national• authority
—and with the certainty that the policy of the
Government for the enforcejnent of its just
authority, will not be changed for at least four
years to come. These influences combine to
render the nation better governed, freer and
happier than it ever was in the past. It is for
the people to decide whether these influences
shall continue, by the support which they
will hereafter give the Government. If those
in authority are sustained, if the army and
navy are upheld and recruited, we will not only
be able to crush our intestine foes, but
we can shake our victorious swords in the
face of the world, and bid defiance to all our
enemies. At the close of the year .1864, the
American people find themselves in reality fhe.
strongest nation on the face of the earth.—
Our resources are inexhaustible. We have a
larger credit and more means, to support it,
than any of the civilized people of the world.
Ours is actually the strongest Government in
existence, because it has withstood, the secret
and open efforts of all the other governments
to break it down. Oar freedom is the purest
that any people ever enjoyed. We recognize
no inequalities but those created by crime.—
The poor man of to-day may be the rich man
of to-morrow. The paths of prosperity are
open to all alike. This is our condition at the
close of the year 1864. And for all that
we possess and are, God alone deserves the
The Position of Jeff Dat-is
When the rebellion was precipitated, the
leaders who had devised its plans and prepared
the people of the South for its bloody pur
poSes, were sanguine of success. Indeed so
certain were the % miscreants of triumphing,
that they had actually arranged what States
of "the old Union" slould be , apportioned, to
their control, where they would live and rule
the Yankee as the petty tyrants of the old world
govern the masses under the4r domination.
Jeff Davis encouraged this , aspiration in his
tools. Davis had cajoled himself with the
faith that he could set up a throne in the
South, which would be occupied by hiinbelt
and a long line of his descendants. With this
purpose in view, the arch-traitor labored in
cessantly to connect his name with all the
operations of the rebellion. He allowed no
campaign to be arranged without seemingly
controlling its details. - Re acquiesced in no
expedition °Fa rebel gunboat, unless' he was
permitted .to direct its course. The rebel
Congress could not move in any enactment
unless he - was first consulted. Thus
Jefferson Davis•hoped so to idemnify his name
with the progress of the rebellion, that at its
anticipated success, its glory and its beneftte
would plo-(• • oflentAd in himself and 431 k
joyed by his family. He wished not °sly to be
regarded as the fomenter Of treason. byt as the
instrument' which promoted alone, success
of rebelliati. With these qualities stablished
and recognized, and rebellion access, De
vis expected to wear a crown hold a seep

had it not keen fi;r certain eitingencies grow

and navy. Bat alas

to control all movedents of the rebellion in

of “P v sident Davis." They , . blame Jeff 'for
Hoo..'s disaster and Hardee's necessities.—
Thy reproach -him with having interfered

army and navy officers, and thereby invoked
defeat on the rebel cause. Indeed, just as
pay.is labored and hoped to centre in his per
son and cluster around his name, all the
credit and glory of rebel success, so is he now
feeling all the crushing weight, odium, dis
grace and reproach of rebel failure. He is
now undoubtedly the most unpopular man in
the rebel States: Who will doubt that this
is not one of the logical results of treason?

' Since the battle of Chattanooga, fought
more than one year ago, my muse seems to have
groin sleepy in her songs of the war, but the
recent brilliant victories around; Nashville,
achieved by the hero of Chickamauga and his
invincible army, roused the classic maid of
Olympus from her state of lethargy, and I

Unlike my friend Cunningham, of the New
York Herald, who is now here, now there,
like some magician or genii of old Persian le
gend, I cannot sing peans of praise or recount,
in glowing terms; the deeds of the whole army,
military rules and military duties, confined
my observation to one section of the battle
field, Awl as purchased puffs have robbed a
brave leader and his gallant command of the
credit of many brave actions, I shall give
"honor to whom honor is due."
On the morning of the 15th of December,
at day dawn, a few stray shots, faint and echo
like, rang out on the morning air like signals
along our right in the low land across the N.
and N. W. Railroad. Like a small spark it
was the kindling of a great fire, and by 10
o'clock, A. ar., the roar of artillery and the
rattle of musketry burst out along Smith's
corps on the right, and soon swept over to
the left, in sullen and irregular vollies.
Grandly betilittful appeared the infantry
with their starry battlellags as they moved in
two lines through the valley, supported by the
cavalry corps under General Wilson. which
consisted of the divisions of Knipe, Johnson
and Hatch: At all points on the left the en
emy yielded ground, were driven headlong
through forest aria field, and his whole flank
rolled up on his right, so that by two o'clock
Hatch was able to form on the right of the
infantry and Knipe on the extreme right of
At four o'clock, r. Ix., Knipe pushed forward
to the Hillsboro' pike, advanced a short dis
tance onthis road and forming in line moved
to the left, and at dark found himself in the
rear of Cheatham's (rebel) corps. So close was
the division on the enemy that his wagon
train loaded with forage was captured, and
many prisoners who came in from foraging
and scouting, and supposed they were enter
ing their own picket lines.
Capt. Simmons made a reconnoissance with
the escort, and discovered a wagon train, of a
hundred wagons, on the Granny White pike.
A regiment was sent out to capture it, but the
Commandant takhig the wrong road the train
About 11 o'clock, Y. ntr. a scout of Forrest's
was taken by our videttes on the Hillsboro'
pike, and brought in to headquarters. He
was a shrewd, fox-like fellow, well educated,
possessing a large stock of valuable informa
tion and the audadity of old Satan himself.—
He cooly seated himself when brought before
the General, asked for a drink of water with
the ease and eloquence of a Chesterfield, and
then hinted in unmistakable 'and elaborate
terms for a chew of tobacco.
At 3 o'clock, A. ar., of the I'th, Hatch hav
ing failed to connect with our left, the divi
sion fell back to the right of the Hillsboro'
pike, leaving a squadron of the 19th Penna.
cavalry to hold the gap. At V) o'clock the
enemy appeared in force in our front and on
our right flank. A sharp fight soon took
place, but the bold charges of ourtroops, led
many times by General Knipe in persofi,
drove them from every height, and by dark

On the-17th the division in advance pushed
on to Franklin, fighting with the enemy's rear
guard and taking prisoners and flags on the
way. The bridge over the river at Frank

and limping on castes, crowded to the .doors
of the hospitals and cheered lustily as the
Federal column charged through the• place.
Some correspondent, whose thirst for mo
ney and literary fame is greater than his love
of truth and veracity, has informed the world
that Gem Hatch, with nine men captured
three pieces of artillery pear Franklin. This
would sound well in fiction, or make an escel
lent yarn for marines, but Gen. Knipe's com
mand took the artillery with its colors on the
first: charge, pushed, ahead, and left Hatch's
command to take it to the rear, where cor
respondents were found to trumpet deeds

had surrendered, and our line moved steadily
up the ridge and through the gap till within
a.tew yards of the enemy's line, when they
opened on our line with a heavy fire of inns
ketilknd artillery. The vollies were terrific, but
too high..to do much damage. Capt. Reeder,
of the etat had his second horse shot under
him, and a number of casualties occurred in
the command, Thich fell back a short dis

"A gentleman who teethed here yester

two of Colonel gosebylono, that, their chief
was shot through the abdomen while scouting
in Prince William county. They further sta
ted that the surgeon did not consider the

The Rielinaoncl,journals are debating the.
subject of appointing General Lee as com
mander-in-chief of all the rebel armies. The
Enquirer of the-27th says:
"As long as General Grant moves and di
rects the operations of all the armies against
Richmond, either by direct attack or by co
operating movements, it is proper and ne
cessary tnat General Lee should be entrusted
with power equal to that possessed by his
antagonist. A commander-in-Chief in the
field, with power to move and direct all ope
rations that tend directly. or indiiiietly to the
defence of Richmond, is now absehitely . de
manded by our situation. The experience
and knowledge of the President would still be
of great service to the country;-'but it: is not
mistaking, the case to say that the country
reposes more confidence in the experience of
General Lee than in' that of any other man.
"We helipve that we but echo the voice and
wish of the whole country when we call upon
the Congress to create by law a generalissitho
of all the armies„ and. that the President
would feel it to be his duty to, appoint Gen
eral Lee to that position, and that such action
by the legialatiSe and executive grout d revive
the confidence of the country." ,
