DISASTERS OCCASIONED BY ABOLI
TION GENERALS TO THE ARMY OF
Mr. EDITOR :—The next disaster visited upon
the Army of Virginia, inflicted upon it by an
Abolition General, T. C. Fremont, the Pathfin
der, was when General M'Clellan, with his
army, stood before Richmond. Gen. NClel
lan embarks his troops at Alexandria and ar
rives at Fortress Monroe. Now, never mind
which is the best base to move on Richmond—
by James river, York river, by Fredericks
burg via Acquia creek, or the upper route by
Gordonsville. Each and all have their several
advantages and disadvantages; and the Omar
mittee on the Conduct of the War knows no
more about it, Mr. Editor, than the smallest
boy you employ in your printing office at Har
risburg. Let us brush it all aside, and go to
the res gaga of the matter as briefly as possi
A military campaign is a dramatic action—
it has its commencement, its middle, and its
end. Now, Mr. Editor, let yourself and your
readers accompany me with the Army of Vir
ginia, and see if we cannot understand the
great drama, in all its three parts, without
being befogged by the Committee on the Con
duct of the War.
Ist part the commencement of the campaign.
Gen. M'Clellan, on landing with his army at
Fortress Monroe, finds General Lee has strongly
fortified Yorktown, garnished his works with
heavy ordnance, and concentrated his whole
army there. General M'Clellan invests it—in
sixteen days forces General Lee to yield it—
(and what is a a remarkable fact, in the same
number of days, exactly, that Gen. Washing
. !,co invest the same city and bring
Cornwallis to submission)—Gen. Lee retreats,
is pursued, Gen. Magruder, who commands his
rear division, from irritable temper, makes a
stand at Williamsburg ; Gen. Lee, to save him,
is forced to sustain him—a "shock of arms"
takes place—General Lee is forced back, and
General M'Clellan wins the field—General Lee
-withdraws his whole army within the fortifica
tions around Richmond—General M'Clellan
advances—toils and struggles, successfully, by
herculean labors, through the swamps of the
Chickahominy—sends a division of his army
across the stream and gains a firm footing—
General Lee alarmed, determines to hurl it
back—surprises and rents it—it is sustained
by General Sumner, and the pursuit arrested—
General Lee brings up 35,009 niumktigained
corps crosses to dispute its possession—a se
were "shock of arms" takes place—the ground
in dispute is won by Gen. M'Clellan, with a
mile and a half in front in addition yielded by
General Lee, and the Army of Virginia stands
within six miles of the rebel capital, and ita
steeples can be seen, and its bells and clocks
can be heard at Gen. M'Clellan's outposts.
Here ends the first part of the military
drama, and so far success accompanies Gen.
M'Clellan, the current broken only by the rout
of Casey's division, and that promptly re
Now we come to the second part of the
great drama. Gen. Beauregard comes up from
the south with large reinforcements for Gen.
Lee. Gen. Lee now outnumbers Gen. M'Clel
lan, say in the proportion of 5 to Z. General
M'Clellan, fully aware of it, asks for rein
forcements—is told he can't Lucie them—asks
again, and again, and again. Same answer,
Asks to send him some from Fortress Monroe
—can't do it ; from Washington—can't, again;
asks for M'Dowell's corps—can't be done. Gen.
M'Clellan then communicates to the President
his great apprehensions of General Jackson's
coming down on his flank and rear, and break
ing up his communications--gets at last M' Call's
division of Gen. M'Dowell's army, and is told
that the rest of that corps is sent to prevent
what he so deeply fears. Gen. Lee, though
reinforced by Beaureiard's troops, afraid to
attack Gen. M'Clellan, devises a cavalry expe
dition against Gen.M'Clellan's communications,
and thus force him to change his front. Gen.
Stuart commands it—tries it, and fails. Gen.
~M'Clellan will not change his front—holds his
ground, still faces Richmond, with a determi
nation to wrest it from Gen. Lee at all hazards
as soon as he hears that General Jackson's at
tempt to strike his flank and rear is arrested,
as promised. •
This brings us to the third part, the end or
crisis of the campaign, in which victory is to
be gained or lost.
All eyes are now turned upon the opera-
Hops of Gen. Thos. Jefferson Jaokeon (known
by the soubriquet of Stonewall Jackson in both
armies). Now, Mr. Editor, if that enterpri
sing officer can disentangle himself from
Banks, who is following him down the Valley
—from M'Dowell's troops, crossing the Blue
Ridge to intercept him—and from Fremont's
large force, ordered across from Western Vir
ginia, with his very route marked out for him,
for the same purpose—and strike Gen. M'Clel
lan's army on its flank and rear, the rebel Cap
ital is saved! If he cannot do it, Richmond is
to -be evacuated, and the campaign in Virginia
successfully closes t All see it. Gen, M'Clel
lan tells the Predent, and he tells Halleck,
and Halle& tells Fremont and Banks. and they
tell each other. Gen. Lee sees it, and tells
Beauregard—he sees it, and they both tell
Jeff. Davis—and he tells Stonewall Jackson,
who sees it by intuition.
Now, mark what takes place, and you and
your readers will see who caused the defeat to
the Army of Virginia. Stonewall Jackson
finds no difficulty, it seems, in shaking off
Banks, his pursuer ; it would be rather sur
prising if he did—he is a New England Gene
ral. But to rub put M'Dowell's troops—that
was a "tight place" indeed ; it came down to
the fraction of an hour; it was a "touch and
go" affair—but Stonewall "rubbed himself
through that. But the greatest peril was from
the large force of Fremont, the "Pathfinder,"
when, lo ! he was evaded without a collision of
any moment, he was out-generalled yith im
punity, and Jackson threw his whole corps
over the Blue Ridge without harm from that
quarter. But why ? you naturally ask. Why,
because Gen. Fremont ohose, instead of fol
lowing his instructions, given by the President
himself, to take his own course, and took Me
wrong route, and the whole of the movements
were rendered abortive. Well might the Pre
sident say, "I never knew General Fremont to
obey an order," and refuse to give him again
an active command.
The rest of the disastrous story is soon told.
Gen. Jackson by rapid marches joins Gene.
Lee and Beauregard's forces, and, outnumber
ing Gen. M'Clellan two to one, forces him to
fall back from Richmond and retire to a safer
position on James River, which he does, not
withstanding their combined efforts to pre
The curtain falls, Mr. Editor, on this great
military drama, and the actors in it are brought
before the American people by, the "Strumpet
Fortune" in their several characters, and thus
they stand, namely :
Lee—from the incapacity and infidelity of
his antagonist's supporters—the Conqueror.
Jackson.---from his own intrinsic ability, ac
tivity and obedience—the hero.
M'Clellan—the true conqueror, but for the
incapacity and infidelity of his supportero—
Fremont—who might have been the hero,
•but for his incapacity and disobedience—the
Halleek—the. military adviser of the Presi
Banks—the original and legitimate opponent
of the Hero—the Pia-ailer.
This shall be my last departure, Mr. Editor.
Causes in my next. PuBLICOLA.
Every day brings us fresh evidence of the in
famous attempts of the administration, through
Abolition officers and hired emissaries, to con
vert the army into a political machine to be used
for the purpose of overawing the people and con
verting the government into a central military
despotism. It has already come to that pass
that no private soldier dare express Democratic
sentiments without subjecting himself to insult
and oppression, and no officer avow his politi
cal principles, if in opposition to those held by
the administration, without being denounced
as a traitor and summarily and " disgrace
" (as they term it) dismissed the service.
176th, who refused to indorse retioliition - s - de - -
nouncing the Democracy of the free States as
" Copperheads " and "traitors," and such the
recompense of Lieutenant Edgexly, who, after
faithfully serving, his country from the com
mencement of the war, was, " dismissed the
service of the United States," by order of the
President, on the 13th of March, 1863, for—
as the order falsely and infamously declares—
" circulating Copperhead tickets, and doing
all in his power to promote the rebel cause in
hie State "—the " the head and front of his
offence " consisting in this, that, being in New
Hampshire at the time of the State election,
he exercised a freeman's privilege and voted
the Democratic ticket. We blush to record
these facts, so disgraceful to our country, and
only a sense of duty impels us to do so.
In addition to the letters from the army,
bearing upon this subject, which we have
already published, we have several on band
confirming fully all that we have ever alleged.
We invite attention to the two following, which
we think will be read with interest by every
body, and open some eyes which have hitherto
been closed against the truth :
From the Perry County Democrat
A young soldier friend writes us :
" I thank you for the papers you sent me.
I was glad to receive them, for it is seldom I
get seeing any papers, and when I do they are
of that sort which disgrace the country they
are _published in—teeming with vile abuse of
those who love the Union and the Constitution,
and giving prairie to none who do not bow down
and worship every act and deed of the present
corrupt and wicked administration. At the
present time efforts are made to prevent all
newspapers being circulated which do not sup
port the Lincoln dynasty. When I received
your kind favor I opened it in the presence of
a captain in our regiment., and when he saw
What papers they were he at once denounced
them as 'Copperhead' papers. I seated
myself on my bed and commenced reading
them. The captain went out and shortly came
bouncing into my quarters the surgeon of the
regiment and wanted to know what I had. I
told him they were the Harrisburg PATRIOT
and Pittsburg Post. Says he : ' They are
"Copperhead" papers and I don't want to see
them about these quarters.' I told him I
thought he was mistaken, that I had been read
ing them and found from their contents that
they were for the Union as it was and the
Constitution as it is.' Says le The editors
are traitors, two of them having been impris
oned for disloyalty to the government, and if I
see them about the quarters I will burn them!'
I told hint they were sent me by a friend and
that I intended to read them—that I was
old enough to judge between right and
wrong, and so long as I lived I would read
what I pleased, denounce error and oppose
the present nigger-loving, Union-hating admin
istration. Says he, 'lf after you are through with
them I find them distributed among the men
you will hear from me.' So you can see what
things are coming to here. The unholy spirit
of despotism dreads the doctrines of free speech
and a free press. To night the officers of this
regiment have a meeting to denounce 'traitors'
at home. What traitors? Those who support
Lincoln for suppressing the writ of habeas car
pus; for issuing his negro emancipation pro
clamation; for signing the unconstitutional act
admitting Western Virginia into the Union as
a State; for preventing certain newspapers
being carried in the mail, and other atrocious
acts Y No ! But to denounce those who are
in favor of the Union as it was and the Consti
tution as it is. Democratic officers here do not
attend these meetings. They are then looked
PRICE TWO CENTS.
upon with suspicion, and the first opportunity
that presents itself, however trivial, they are
dishonorably dismissed from the service. I
hope you who are not in the " army, you who
have not taken the oath to obey all orders of
the President of the United States, will fight
the unconstitutional acts of this miserable, this
tyrannical administration to the bitter end.—
They would make us slaves here, yes, white
slaves to free the black?. We look to you to
do your duty this coming fall. Rebuke the
wicked doings of those in power."
The following, from the Monroe Democrat, is
from a private of the 176th, Colonel Lechler,
and has reference to the proceedings purpor
ting to have been unanimously adopted by the
regiment, recently published in the Telegraph
and other vile Abolition papers. The " Cap
tain of Co. D, from Lehigh county," spoken
of, is Captain Schaad, to whom we have already
" The Democrats in the regiment were bit
terly opposed to the whole proceeding. They
in a low tone, however, had to express their
condemnation upon the nefarious resolutions
adopted at the time, which abused all the De
mocrats at home. Our friend Jacob Angle
moir, however, from the western part of the
county, could not bear if. He bursted out in
a rage, slapped his fists together at the same
time exclaiming, 'I can whip the best Repub
lican in the regiment.' Our drunken Colonel
looked at him like a cowardly skinned coon,
but made no remarks, and sneaking Major
Schoonover disappeared. A captain from Le
high county of Company D refused to sign the
resolutions, upon which the Colonel remarked,
1 Luc be G—d d--d, soon have the straps off
of your shoulders'—and within a week he actu
ally was discharged, losing all his pay due him
by the government, amounting to about $7OO.
This accounts for other Democratic officers
signing these resolutions, although against
their wishes and sentiments."

EPPING, N. H., December 20,1828.
During the long and eventful session of Con
gress of 1803 and 1804, 1 was a member of
the Senate, and was at the city of Washington
every day of that session. In
. the course of
the session, at different times'and places, seve
ral of the Federalists, Senators and Repre
sentatives, from the New England. States, in
formed me that they thought it necessary to
establish a separate government in New
England, and, if it should be found practicable,
to extend it so far 'oath as to include Pennsyl
vania ; but in all events to establish one in
New England. They complained, that the
slaveholdiog States had acquired, by means of
their slaves, a greater increase of Representa
tives in the House than was just and equal;
that too great a portion of the public revenue
was raised in the Northern states, and too
muoh of it expended in the Southern and Wes
tern States ; and that the acquisition of Louisi
ana and the new States that were formed, and
those to be formed in the West and in the ceded
territory, would soon annihilate the weight
and influence of the Northern States in the
Their intention, they said, was to establish
,their new government under the authority and
- . .
majority of a Legislature in a State in favor of
a separation, the Legislature should repeal
the law authorizing the people to elect Repre
sentatives to Congress, and the Legislature
decline electing Senators to Congress, and
gradually withdraw the State from the Union,
establish custom house officers to grant regis
ters and clearances to vessels, and eventually
establish a Federal government in the North
ern and Eastern States. And that if New En
gland united in the measure, it would in due
time be effected without resorting to arms.
Just before that session of Congress closed,
one of the gentlemen to whom I have alluded,
informed me, that arrangements had been
made to have the next autumn, in Boston, a
select meeting of the leading Federalists in
New England, to consider and recommend the
measures necessary to form a system of gov
ernment for the Northern States, and that
Alexander Hamilton, of New York, had con
sented to attend that meeting.
Soon after my return from Washington, I
adopted the most effectual means in my power
to collect the opinions of well-informed leading
Federalists in New Hampshire, upon the sub
ject. I found some in favor of the measure,
but a great majority of them decidedly op
posed to the project ; and from the partial and
limited inquiries I made in Massachusetts, the
result appeared to me nearly similar to that in
The gentleman, who in the winter of 1803
and 1804, informed me there was to be a meet
ing of the Federalists, in the autumn of 1804,
at Boston, at the session of Congress in the
winter of 1804 and 1805, observed to me, that
the death of General Hamilton had prevented
the meeting, but the project was not, and
would not be abandoned.
I owe it to you as well as myself, to state
explicitly that in the session of Congress, in
the winter of 1803 and 1804, I was myself in
favor of forming a separate government in
New England; and wrote several confidential
letters to a few of my friends and correspond
ents, recommending the measure. But after
wards, upon thoroughly investigating and ma
turely considering the subject, I was fully
convinced that my opinion in favor of separa
tion was the most erroneous that I ever formed
upon political subjects. The only consolation
I had, was that my error in opinion had not
produced any acts injurious to the integrity of
the Union. When the same project was re
vived in 1308 and 1809, during the embargo and
non-intercourse, and afterwards, during the
war of 1812, I used every effort in my power,
both privately and publicly, to defeat the at
tempt then made to establish a separate inde
pendent government in the Northern States.
You are at liberty to make: ouch use of this
communication as you shall di:lnsider proper.
Accept the assurance of my high respect
and esteem, WILLIAM PLIINER.
A letter in the Clinton Democrat from a

a compliment to two Harrisburgers. The wri

One evening last week the Fourth Michigan
Band had a grand •serenade in our regiment
in honor of the promotion of Captain Davis to
the office of Major, in place of Maj. Givens,
dismissed from service for cowardice in the
charge at Unionville on the 4th of March.
When Maj. Givens was ordered to charge with
his regiment, he thought it rather - ) dangerous
to take the front, so he told •Cipt. Davis to
lead the charge sod he would take Command

SPIRITUALISM AND RODGOBL/NO.—When the
clergyman of Chicago waited upon the Presi
dent of the United States, he informed then
that the proclamation for the freedom of ne
groes would be like the pope's bull, against the
comet; "but," says the President, "if the Lord
desires me to do this, why don't he inform me,
who am so deeply interested in, and- responsiw
ble for, knowing ?" The Chicago• p riesthood
did not understand him. They werei .
Methodists. But Robert Dale Owen, who is a
Spiritualist, had a communication with the
spirits, and thereupon wrote a letter to Secre
tary Stanton, urging the proclamation upon the
country and the President as just, right and
of God. Judge Edmonds, Robert Dale Owen,
and other spiritualists gave the President the
long expected communication through medi
ums, and he acted accordingly.
Now put a pin right here. In no arbitrary
arrest has this form of despotism been exer
cised toward a Puritan or Spiritualist. Dash

ters among the Presbyterians, M'Master among
the Catholics, Episcopalians represented by
Judge Carmichael, all well, thoroughly and
fitly represented in prisons without Grime ;
but no Puritan, no Spiritualist, has ever been
arrested—none ever will. We have an admin
istration controlled by Spiritualism. Gurley
is a Spiritualist, Robert Dale Owen, Judge
Edmonds, and Thad. Stevens, Burlingame,
Schurz, and Sumner are Spiritualists.
The last appointment announced is that of
Gurley, of Cincinnati, Governor of Arizona, a
Spiritualist. Has it come to this I—a great
country governed by ghosts, spirits, hobgob
lins, table-turnings, rappings, &o. Be not de
ceived; this is the animus of the administra
tion.—Burlingtod (Iowa) Argus,
The above is true, undoubtedly, but it does
not tell us half of "the whole truth." Judge
Edmonds, the man of "visions," is an adviser
of the President, and is frequently at Washing
ton. We think he is now residing there. A
noted medium of New York city, is frequently
sent for, and has interviews with the Presi.
dent, the object of the latter being to obtain
communications from the spirits. This, wa
have excellent authority for saying, is strictly
In reference to the proclamation, this may .
be said. The spirit of Andrew Jackson was
called upon,and urged vehemently that it should
not be issued. The spirit of Thom Jefferson
was called, and was in favor of issuing it. It
is now suspected that the spirit which repre
sented itself to be that of Jefferson was an im
From what we have been told we have no
doubt that the President is a very firm believer
in ghosts ; but, it is said, he is more conserva

round him, and frequently remarks that the

MARIE THIC DigTERENO E.—Hundreds of lead
ing Republicans and Republican papers are
urging a dissolution of the Union. Some have
advocated dissolution for years; others, like
the Tribune, believe in ,the doctrine of seces
sion; others say they want to " whip the South
and then let them go i • " others say they will
_never consent to a restoration of the Union ;
others say they are sick of the war and are
willing to let the Southern States go off. In
these and a score of similar forms of expres
sion, hundreds of the leading spirits of the
Republican party have declared their willing
ness to have the Union broken up, and their
utter hostility to its restoration and perpetua
tion. But this ispagriotivm, and those men are
patriots, according to the Republican diction
On the other hand, no Democrat was ever
heard to express or approve of any of these
sentiments; no Democrat either advocates or
approves of the doctrine of secession; no Dem
ocrat is willing to see the Union dissolved; all
Democrats hold that its restoration and pre
sx'iradon are indispensable to the prosperity
of the conntry and the perpetuity of our free
institutions ; and no Democrat avows a wil
lingness to make peace upon any other terms
than a complete restoration of the old Union.
Bit this is treason, and Democrats are traitors,
according to the Republican dictionary.
We wish all readers to ponder this great fast
—this fundamental and vital difference between
the two parties and to note the daily proof of it
which is lound in the avowals of leading men
and papers.' And having thus confirmed the
