Forney's Comment.
Forney's comment on the Report of the Com
mittee on the Conduct of the War is unique.
It concludes thus:
"The report ought to be read by every clue,
and cannot fail to command the attention which
RS fairness, its unanswerable facts, and the well
known abzlity and INTEGRITY of its authors de
serve that it should receive."
As an old friend of ours would exclaim, with.
both hands raised above his head, "Gracious
Heaven !" " The ' , fatness" of the report-:-
mark' that ! Its "unanswerable facts"—pticlt a
pin there ! " The well krown ability and IN
TEGRITY" of Hen. Wade, Zachviah Chandler,
and John Covode—ture down the leaf and
pause for breath ! What man save Forney,
the mendacious wretch wbo charges Democrats
with "living upon thepubliecalamities"—who
but the miserable parasite that clings to the
administration for bread and writes for the
privilege of plunder, could havo written a
_sentence so replete with falsehood and unmer
ited encomium? There are many base men in
the world-many " base and ' unscrupulous
wretches, many corthorants and birds of vile
propensities in. the adminstration ranks—but
Forney is the dirtiest, buzzard, thy most die
: ado bi ed of them all.

have always failed when in power to adminis
ter the affairs of the government, either State
or National, to the Belief — action of the people;
that they have ever 'disregarded the principles
on which the government is based and upon

daring to run their machine for two conSeou
five years under the same'ntune, is not entitled
to the respect of any loyal man in the land.
These gentlemen are greatly pleased With
your labors in bottling the vile Abolition party

,This being the case it is well enough to scruti

bers of the regiment interested in getting them

"regiment is 4eaidlidly Demoeratio," we may
bepermitted to doobt whether the men. were
.particulirly consulted, on the subject, or• had
any idea of the use that was to be made of the
reriolations, Oven if they were carelessly read
to them. , We don't believe that any Democrat,
whether in the dress of , a private citizen or a
prirate soldier, woulddeliberately indorse the

structed, of the privilege of the, writ of habeas

The Colonel tells us that there are but
"seven Republicans out of the thlrty-six. offi

it is stated that the reginient is composed of
"citizens of Lehigh and Monroe counties." The
Colonel does not, inform us what his own poli

For the Patriot and
MESSRS. EDITORS :—For some time past the
Abolition papers have been publishing resolu-'
tions denouncing northern Democrats and stig r
matizing every one who does not sing mans
of praise to his Imperial Highness the Aboli
tion President, and endorse all'his ultra mea
sures without hesitation .or mental, reserve
tion--which resolutions purport being passed
with great unanimity by certain Pennsylvania
regiments. The folloling extract from a sol
dier's letter, published in , the Hollidaysburg
Stendard, will give your readers some insight
into the manner" in which this kind of- public
sentiment is manufactured. He says!
, 4 A piece of political trickery of this ; kind
was practiced on our regiment ,a few days ago.
Some of the Republican editors at,home wrote
to some of their political friends in the regi
ment asking them to get up a set of resolutions
,denouncing the Copperheads" -of the North';
denouncing peace propositions; branding
with infamy the .Democratic State Senators
whq refused to give the legislative ball to Jehn
son and Wright; extolling the ,Governor of
,Pennsylvania, and endorsing the measures of
the -President's emancipation and conscription
acts. The resolutions were. dratted; and en
dortied in the following manner: The regiMent
was convened before the Colonel's marquee.
The meeting was organized by calling a ram
pant Abolitionist to the chair. The Colonel,
by request of the chairman, stated to the regi
ment the object of the meeting, after which
the resolutions,were read. Immediately after
the reading some one proposed that the reso
lotions be endorsed by the regiment : just as
.they stood. A vote was then taken, and I
Suppose every Republican in the, regiment voted
fox them. There was no negative vote offered,
consequently we who could not conscientiously.
endorse the resolutions, as they stood, were
compelled to lookers on in Venice.' I
suppose the resolutions will be forwarded to
the different Republican county papers for
publication as unanimously endorsed by our
regiment. Bat the truth is, if a,negative vote
had been taken,we would have sent up as loud
a nay,as the endorsers did a yea." ,
Resolutions of this kind have lately been
published as emanating from the 84th regi
ment. These - who know that the original field,
staff and line officers, with one : or• two excep
tions, were uncompromising Democrats, to say
nothing of the fact that four-ftfihs of the pi-
Tates belonged to the same political family,
would naturally be surprised; but the fact
must be remembered that at this-time there is
not a single one of the original field officers in
,the regiment,' and only two line officers—lieu
tenants. Some were slain in battle, •others
wounded,. and many compelled to resigh from
ill-health. The resolutions purporting to' be
passed by the regiment are the production of
the new officers, ivho are lookipg forward to
promotion, and do not empress the sentiments
of the brave Democrats of the 84th. This we.
have direct from one who has partiolpated in
all the battles in which that excellmitregiment
has been engaged. BLAIR tOURTY.

between the pickets on shore. The rebels were
greatly strengthening their works. They have.

opinion of well informed officers that our gun
boats will not succeed in taking the fort. The
country along the Tallahatchie is, occupied' by
two regiments of rebel cavalry and swarms
with guerillas. The first reconnoissance of

The Evening Poet learie th it on :the 4th in
stant Gen. Foster was at%Little Washington,

Carolina and some other troopi were virtually ,
surrounded by the rebels; ivho have 'ereCted
batteries on Tar River, between Newbein and
`Little Washingtqn, which thei naval force of
wooden' gunboats are unable to pass.
It„ is understood that a battle has taken
place betweeu Gen. Fester and the rebels, but •
nothing definite is . known of the fight, which
was evidently conducted by the rebels from
their batteries. Gen. Foster's•means of defense
are deemed ample, he having a fort and len.
trencbmente, with sufficient ammunition and
provisions.., '
Large reinforcements are in• transports below
the batteries, unable to reach General Foster
for want of some naval force competent to take
them. It is reported that GenerV. Foster sent
to Fortress Monroe some time since for naval
reinforcements. It was expected that troops
would be sent to him from Suffolk.
