Harrisburg, March 28, 1863.
" It Rust Come to illows.r,
Such is the opinion of the valiant and patri
otic Hessian of the Tc/eyraph—the Lincoln
postmaster, enjoying the snug little income of
$3,000 or $4,000 a year in salary and perqui
sites. "It must come to blows between the
loyal men of the free States and the traitors,"
&c.—meaning that there must be civil war
here in the free North between the Abolition
ists, who are styled " loyal men," and the
Democrats, who are styled- traitors; and the
Telegraph adds : " That time is here now, and the
Mows are now about to be struck." And all this—
the horrors of civil war, with all its inevitable
atrocities—is to take place " now," because a
11. S. detective officer has arrested four simple
minded citizens of Berks county on a charge of
conspiracy to "abduct President Lincoln, estab
lish a Northwestern Confederacy, and resist the
conscription law." We have read the prelimi
nary examination of the parties implicated—
Messrs. Philip Haber, Augustus F. Illlg. Ga
briel Filbert, sad Harrison Oxeneider—before
11. S. Commissioner Hazlett, and really, if it
were not for the seriousness of the charge,
made on the oath of a 11. S. detective, we should
be inclined to treat it as the greatest farce that
ever was played in a court of justice. Possibly
the men may be guilty of violation of law, un
doubtedly they acted unwisely and unpatrioti
eally—but we cannot see in the circumstance
any occasion for immediately prpipitating
civil war. If the hessian insists on it, how
ever, and brine it about. we rick him cut as
our man in the etruggle.
As soon as we can find room we shall publish
the proceedings in the case alluded to, and let
our readers see how small a thing it takes to
frighten cowards out of their senses. In the
meantime, if the Abolitionists are ready—if
the time is really "here now "—let them strike.
We do not court, but assuredly we shall not
shun the contest—and remember, we clailn'the
Hessian as the first subject upon which to try
our ekill and prowess.
A Vote of Confidence.
The Washington Chronicle (Forney's) chuck
les over the admission of the New York World,
previous to the Connecticut election, .that a
verdict in favor of Buckingham would be an
endorsement of all the measures of theead
ministration, and "would be regarded as a vote
of confidence in the Cabinet." Well, we re
gard it in that light. The World was right.
Connecticut has endorsed the measures of the
administration ; has expressed, by her vote,
"confidence in the Cabinet," and Forney may
rejoice over the fact. But how was it accom
plished? By a fair, honest, uncontrolled vote
of the people ? By no means. It was effected
through the power of the Government and the
arbitrary control of the elective franchise by
soulless corporations. It is an achievement
that rogues may glory in, but that honest men
and true patriots would blush to claim. The
Government furloughed thousands of Abolition
soldiers and sent them home to vote for Buck
ingham, refusing the same privilege to Demo
cratic privates who would have voted for Sey
mour, and the corporations threatened all their
workmen with instant dismissal if they refused
to vote as directed. In that manner Connecti
cut was carried for the administration—in that
manner only could it have been carried. If it
is a subject of congratulation, let the Aboli
tionists throw up their caps, fire the big guns,
and shout to the utmost capacity of their lungs.
It is in their line of business to resort to and
commend every species of villainy that tends
to strengthen their power and fill their pock
et; and no one is aetoniaked that they are ex
static' over results obtained by means that
would mantle the cheeks of honesty with
Slashes of shame.
Anoirriomen.—The Rochester (New York)
Union says :
"It is a rather significant fact that the leader
of New England Federalism in 1812-14—the
limn most prominent in opposition to the em
bargo end the war; the man who as a Repre
sentative in Congress voted for all the meas
ales aredicated noon the then approaching
war, but against the war itself; the man- who
reported the infamona raseintion denying a
tot . Of thanks to Cep►ain Lawrence for the
esittsze of the Peacock; the maw w h o was
and 6 State St., Seaton,
among the originators of the slavery agitation;
the man who, on the admission of Louisiana,
declared it 'the right of all' and the duty of
some of the States to prepare for separation,
amicably if they can, violently if they must'—
it is a rather significant fact that Josiah Quin
cy lives to-day, and is an honored leader of
the ultra radicals!"
Jacksonville Burned.
That little negro raid of General Hunter's,
which Greeley announced some time ago with a
devilish glee that horrified the whole country,
has accomplished its Christian mission in Flori
da, and returned to Rilton Head. We have not
yet learned the full extent of the excesses com
mitted by them and their white Yankee compan
ions in arms from Maine and Connecticut ; but
this much has reached us : they have burned
the town of Jacksonville—committed to the
flames an entire village, and turned the inhab
itants, weak women and innocent children,
adrift upon the world, without a bed to rest
upon or a roof to cover them. Where was
Higgenson, that "mild mannered man as ,ever
scuttled ship or cut a throat"—where was the
Jayhawker, Montgomery, the Kansas horse
thief, (prominent leaders of the "black bri
gade")—when Col. Rust ordered his " white
trash," the Yankee Abolitionists from Connec
ticut and Maine, to apply the incendiary torch
and lay in ashes the most flourishing town of
Florida ?—a town, too, which the Abolition
journals confess was inhabited chiefly by. loyal
people. Where were these trusted lieutenants
of the negro-organizer Hunter—these Christian
commanders of the expedition, which Greeley
told us was about to "fall, sudden and irresis
tible as an avalanche, where preparation and
defence are alike impossible"—when Jackson
ville was in flames, and the wretched inhabi
tants fleeing from their blazing homes ? Pro
bably looking quietly on, witnessing with
fiendish joy the consummation of their pur•
And what if they were ? Are we to blame
them, or those who sent them—the adminis
tration, as whose agent they acted ?
The New York Evening Post and Philadelphia
Bulletin had better restrain their affected in
dignation at this outrage. It is the inevitable
result of their own savage and bloody teaching
—it is in strict accord with the barbarous doc
trines the administration and its presses have
been sedulously inculcating. When they send
forth from their eldete articles deliberately
prepared, advising extermination, devastation,
confiscation and conflagration, what milder
measures can they relit' )nally expect from care
less, thoughtless soldiers in the field, hardened
by the cruel scenes they daily witness ? Did
not these and kindred journals adtise the bur
ning of Baltimore ? Have they not threatened
that one stone should not be left upon another
of Charleston? have not their Congtess passed
confiscation acts and their President approved
them ? Have they not practiced the 'seizure
and incarceration in vile prisons of innocent
citizens, torn rudely from the embraces of their
families without warrant of law ? and have
not their military chieftains expatriated, with
out trial, thousands whom they merely sus
pected of disloyalty ? Has not the whole policy
of this administration been despotic, cruel,
bloody, oppressive, unwise, unchristian and
unnatural ? Why, then, single out this single
instance of the destruction of Jacksonville,
the least, probably, among a thousand other
atrocities approved by them, or passed over in
silence ? We tell these gentlemen of the Abo
lition press that their howl of affected indig
nation is ridiculous. They will be laughed
at by those who have watched their course and
read their bloody disquisitions on the enormi
ty of the rebellion and the proper modes of
crushing it, for this unlooked for display of
squeamishness at the eleventh hour, when the
engines of torture and destruction which they
have recommended are all prepared and the
screws and pulleys just beginning to work.
Gentlemen, if you sicken at your own prescrip
tions—if you cannot look upon blood and car
nage, conflagration and devastation with com
, posnre, shut your eyes, clench your teeth, brace
your nerves, turn away from the scenes that
legitimately spring from your infernal doctrines
—but hold your tongues and keep your pens
from paper if you would not become the butt
and scorn of the world.
"God save the country and the cause where
such things are done in its name
S and by its
friends," exclaimstheEveningPost. "This is the
most outrageous act committed by Union troops
since the war began. * - R . * Some miscre
ants from the white regiments set fire to the
Lawn in various places, and in a little while
nothing was left of Jacksonville but heaps of
smoking ruins," says the Bulletin; and it adds
farther, "the Government owes it to itself and
to the country to have this matter investiga
To the exclamation of the Post we respond
amen But with what consistency can either
of these journals deprecate barbarisms which
themselves have taught the people and the sol
diers to look upon as merited inflictions upon a
rebellions population ?
What would be the difference to the inhabi
tants of Jacksonville whether their property
were confiscated or burned ? In either case
their lot would be the same. Confiscation
would dispossess them of home and the com
forts of home—fire, though a more summary
process, conid inflict no greater injury.
We advise the gentlemen of the Abolition
press to keep calm—to look with less horror
and more complacency upon their own deeds
which, however inhumane and revolting to
others, should not appal them if they are sin
cere believers in the doctrines they have
Men who will advocate negro exped;tions got
up by such men as Hunter, and officered by
the Higgensons and Montgomerys of the white
camp, should not squirm at their results. But
we are told that it was not the negro brigade,
but the Maine and Ccunecticut troops under
Rust that fired Jacksonville. There is so little,
if any, difference between a Yankee Abolition
ist and a full•blooded negro in sentiment and
disposition, that we fail to perceive the dis
tinction. They were all together, negrecs and
Yankees, in the expedition, and Higgenson was
the commander. R was a genuine Abolition
raid, conducted on Abolition principles, and
the Post and the Bulletin are as guilty as the
parties who applied the torah and howled over
the devilish work committed to them and which
their bands so well performed.
The devil may still have other atrocities in
store for the negro and Yankee troops to com
mit—deeds of conflagration, violation ani ex
termination—deeds abhorrent to Christianity,
and diagracefel to human nature.. But, what
wirer may be their enormity, we trust our cul
tivated, refined, exclusively patriotic Abolition
friends will not again stultify themselves by
any display of even mock sympathy and indig
nation. Let them accept tha work as it has
been laid out for them, and do it or see it done
without question or doubt.
By the way, "while our hands are in," we
will take the liberty to ask our contemporaries
what they think of the little holiday amuse
ment Gen. Milroy proposes to indulge himself
and army in after they shall have finished the
war against the Confederates ? An extract
from his letter, with the comments of the Lou
isville Journal, are appended, on which we ask
the opinion of the Post, the Bulletin, and other
Abolition journals now in deep mourning over
the destruction of Jacksonville. This threat
ened wholesale massacre of General Milroy is
another consequence of the doctrines and po
licy of Abolitionism, on which we desire to
have the calm judgment of the now seemingly
repentant Abolition press.
[From the Lonietille Journal.]
The Abolitionists are greatly delighted with
Gen. Milroy's letter in relation to the action
of the Democratic members of the late Legisla
ture of Indiana. Here is the closing paragraph
of the letter:
I join with my fellow soldiers of the 'Union
everywhere in warning these traitors at homto
that when we Ave crushed armed treason at the
SouttEand restored the sovereignty of our Gov
ernment over these misguided States (which,
under God, we will surely do) we will, upon
our return, while our hands are in, also exter
minate treason at the North, by arms, if need be,
and seal, by the blood of traitors, wherever
found, the permanent peace of our country
and the perpetuity of free government to all
future generations. R. H. MILROY.
Mark this language. Gen. Milroy warns
"these traitors at home" (referring expressly
to such "traitors" as the Democrats of the In.
diana Legislature), that, as soon as the South
ern rebellion is piit down, be and his troops
upon their return, and while their hands
are in, exterminate by force of arms treason at
the North (such treason as that of the Indiana
Legislature), and seal a peace by the blood of
the traitors. Be it observed that Milroy and
his troops, according to his statement, are to
do all this butchery, not after awaiting the ac
tion Of Civil or judicial authorities, but at once
on their return from the South, before they
are disbanded, "while their hands are in."
The threat or notification or whatever it may
be is infamous and shocking. The idea of an
army's returning from a successful war, and,
with their grasp upon their country's weapons
unrelaxed, proceeding to decide for themselves
what is treason and what classes of politicians
and civilians are traitors and exterminate the
treason and the traitors by a general massacre,
is atrocious and revolting beyond expression.
We had not supposed that the most black
hearted Abolition fanatic or lunatic in all this
land or in all the world could put forth or en
dorse any threat or suggestion of a thing so
unutterably horrible.
We have no apprehension that any ef our
Federal troops, even any of those under Gen.
Milroy's immediate command, could ever be
persuaded to undertake such a devilish work
as he threatens.
General News
Nothing conclusive yet from Charleston. By
the arrival at New York, on the 9th, of the
transport Fairhaven, Acting Master Moses,
from Port Royal, we have the following intelli
The bomardment of Fort Sumpter by the iron
dads began on Monday.
Captain Moses of the Fairhaven, brings in
telligence from Captain Steedman that Admiral
Dupont had, on the 3d of April, proceeded to
Charleston with the following iron-clads:-
1. New Ironsides (flagship,) Commander Thos.
Turner; 2. Patapsco, Captain D. Ammen ; 3.
Catskill, Captain George W. Rogers; 4. Mon
tauk, Capt. J. L. Worden; 5. Passaic, Capt. P.
Drayton ; 6. Weehawken, Capt. Jno. Rodgers ;
7. Keokuk, Commander A. G. Rhind ; 8. Na
hant, Captain John Downes ; Q. Nantucket,
Commander D. N. Fairfax.
Off Stono Inlet Captain Moses saw our army
transport fleet and iron-clads anchored inside.
Ile also saw the Ericsson lying aft the inlet,
with a float lying astern.
An English officer who left Charleston on the
28th of March gives it as his opinion that the
city is as well defended as time and the means
of the rebels would allow, but is by no means
impregnable. Many of the implements of war
upon which they in some measure rely, such
as submarine batteries and torpedoes, are com
paratively new and untried inventions, the ef
fects of which connot be estimated. It is his
opinion that, Ville Union iron-clads can resist
the batteries and forts and pass within shel
ling distance of the city, it can be taken or de
stroyod. He thinks it madness to attempt to
take it by a land force ; there are so many
difficulties of ground and fortifications to over
come, he thinks we have not men enough to do
it. The Richmond Sentinel, April 8, believes
"that the long expected attack had COMMEneed,
and that the enemy were bombarding Sump
ter." The Whig, of the same date, announces
that the Federal "gunboats and transports had
succeeded in crossing the bar, and were at an
chor; " and that the Confederate " iron-clads
lay between the forts, quietly awaiting the
attack!' No official intelligence from Charles
had been received at Washington up to mid
night Thursday, but entire confidence was
expressed that the attack on Charleston would
prove successful.
From Vicksburg we have the following : A
dispatch from Young's Point, April 8, says
several transports laden with troops and Gen.
lilletes marine brigade and one iron -clad, star
ted up stream this morning. There is no pros
pect of active operations before Vicksburg for
some time. A new canal, eight rniieS log, is
being cut three miles above the Point, to
empty into the Mississippi below Warrenton.
Three dredges and the African brigade are at
work on it day and night. Admiral Farragut
still holds the river between Vicksburg and
Port Hudson. The Queen of the West is up the
Red river. Admiral Porter and Gen. Grant are
reconnoitering up the Yazoo.
General Steele's divisslon has landed at
Greeneville, Mississippi, the object being to
co • operate in the Yetlitetion of Fort Pemberton.
A rebel account from Fort Pemberton, April
5, says, however, that our troops embarked
the previous night and in the morning were
in rapid retreat. Somewhat muddled are the
amounts from that region.
New Orleans reports to Ist April say that
General Banks crossed with ten thousand men
at Donaldsonville, and has gone down by Pla
quemine bayou to reinforce Gen. Weitzel and
attack the Bayou Teethe country.
Colonel Boone surprised the rebels at Wood
ward, Tennessee, on the Bth, recaptured cur
stores, and took several prisoners. &yore
skirmishing took place the next morning.—
Colonel Boone pursued the rebels fifteen tulles.
General Copeland, of General Stahl's divis
ion, made a successful raid to Aldie, Middle
burg and Ropersville, in Loudon county, Va.,
in which he captured some seventy rebels and
ever one hundred horses.
The Preeident•paid a visit to the Army on
the Rappahannock on Sunday, and had a re
view of the army by brigades.
Rebel dispatches from Chattanooga say that
a Union force of 15,000 men is advancing on
Columbia, and that a battle is imminent.
By telegraph yesterday afternoon:
The Richmond Whig of the 9th contains a
dispatch dated Vicksburg, 7th. April, which
says : The enemy [Unionists] are withdraw
ing their troops from the Peninsula. Yester
day all their tents were struck. • Four large
transports have gone up the river loaded with
troops. The enemy cut the levee and turned
the water into their old camping ground.
A rebel dispatch from Jackson, Miss., April
7, says : Farragut, with three vessels, is
above Port Hudson. He signalled the lower
fleet, but none of his vessels have gone down
the river yet. Vicksburg will be attacked this
week. The Federals have contracted their lines
at Memphis. The Hartford landed at Bayou
Sara this morninz and destroyed the Govern
ment stores there. The lower fleet has opened
fire lying out of reach of our batteries.
We have rebel information of the attack on
the fortifications of Charleston and the repulse
of our fleet. A Fortress Monroe dispatch of
the 10th Pays : Yesterday's Richmond lVhig
contains Charleston intelligence to the 7th, as
follows : The attack has commenced. Four
iron-clads out of seven in the Yankee fleet are
engaged. Heavy firing took place from the
fleet and from the forts, Sumpter and Moultrie
and Morris Island. The Ironsides was hit and
run ashore, but got off and was carried out of
range. At 2.9 the Monitors and Ironsides
opened fire at a distance of 3000 yards. At
2.80 the fire was incessant on both sides till
five o'clock, when it gradually diminished.—
The fire was concentrated on Fort Sumpter.
The Ironsides and Keokuk withdrew at 4
o'clock, apparently disabled. Intense excite
ment prevails in the city. Our Monitors have
gone out to take part. Our casualties, brie
boy killed and five men badly wounded is
Sumpter. The other batteries have not been
heard from. April Bth-1.30 p. m.—Seven
turreted iron-clads and the Ironsides are with
in the Bar, and twenty-two blockading vessels
off the Bar. The Keokuk is sunk on the beach
off Morris' Island. There is no disposition
apparent to renew the conflict.
We must not remember that this information
comes from the Charleston rebels through a
rebel Richmond paper, and, remembering this,
make due allowance—but still, we fear it is too
true. We were apprenensive of such a result,
and will be surprised to find it fully confirm
ed by our next accounts. Yet we hope it may
be otherwise.
A San Francisco dispatch, April 10,says that
General Wright has issued a proclamation,
which concludes as follows :
"Although the great mass of the people on
the Pacific coast are eminently patriotic and
devoted to the Union, yet, fellow citizens, we
must not disguise the fact that wo have traitors
in our midst, who are doing all in their power
to involve their country in the horrors of a
civil war. To such persens I say, pause and
reflect well before plunging into the yawning
abyss of treason. An indignant people will
rise in their majesty and swift retributive
justice will be your certain doom."
