To Correspondents.
Isaimunt..—lsn't there some mistake ? We
have not been able to discover in the local or
editorial columns what you allude to.
We profess to have a sincere respect for re
7igion, the pure and undefiled religion of
Christ, as delivered by himself and preached
by his Apostles. So, we presume, has Mayor
Itonmfort. But that religion taught by the
white-choker gentry of the Abolition pulpit,
the clerical hyenas of the Beecher and Cheever
echool, the ruffs of the New York Methodist
Conference, semi=civilized savages, human ti
gers howling for blood, soiling the garments
of the church with the filth of earth, preaching
not Christ and Him crucified, but the negro
and him emancipated—why for that religion,
taught by such men, and eulogized by such
gross, ungodly and hypocritical Pharisees as
Deacon Bergner and his clue, we profess to
have not only no reverence, but, on the con
trary, to entertain the most thorough contempt.
if there is-a single devout, pure-minded Chris
tian man or woman in Harrisburg who can
read, without being shocked and mortified, the
Telegraph's expositions of Christianity, we can
only regret the ignorance or fanaticism that
blinds them to the truth, and fervently pray
that light may shine upon them before they
open their eyes upon the realities of eternity,
where God is all in all, and truth and right
eousness reign triumphant and forever_
Judge Pearson's Charge.
The Telegraph quotes with approbation the
following passage from the charge of Judge
Pearson :
' , Citizens have a right under the provisions
of the Constitution to chsnge their rulers at
the expiration of their term of office, and elect
those who will administer the public affairs
differently—but no one has the right to destroy
the government itself; every such act is high
treason. In a contest like that now wa:nL in
nears s ; an • all who render them aid and
comfort, directly or indirectly, are traitors in
their acts. All who are not for the government
are against it. In this great struggle for na
tional existence there eat be but two parties,
True men and traitors—there can be no neu
trals. Every man receiving the protection of
the government is
_bound to render it his
warmest support, whether he approves or dis
approves of its administration."
In its comments, that profound organ of the
administration remarks : "Tim charge from
Which the above has been condensed is creating
st most profound sensation throughout the
Commonwealth." Not having been published
until Tuesday evening, it has hardly had time
to circulate "throughout the Commonwealth,''
and therefore we must be permitted to con
sider the expression of the Telegraph a little
extravagant. But, admitting that it has been
already widely circulated, we should like to
know what particular part or parts of it are
or is creating a "profound sensation." Cer
tainly not the passage now quoted ; for, except
Deacon Bergner, there is not, probably, a man
in the State so ignorant as not to knort that
that he owes his government support, and that
he who renders aid to its enemies—who is try
ing by force or stratagem to to overthrow it—
is a traitor. It is presumed that every Ameri
can citizen, except those of African or Hessian
descent, knows this, and therefore we are little
indebted to Judge Pearson for that part of his
charge. Bat there is one part of it whioh the
Te/egraph, has—accidentally, of course--over
looked, which has possibly created some sen
sation in the Abolition ranks. It has been
held by the Telegraph, the Press, the Chronicle,
and in fact by all the presses of the adminis
tration, with rare exceptions, that the Admin
istration is the government, and that to oppose
the administration is to oppose the govern
ment—and, therefore, whoever opposes the ad
ministration, objects to its measures, and criti
cises unfavorably its acts, is a traitor. That
has been the Abolition doctrine, and is yet_ It
does not seem to be the doctrine of Judge
Pearson, and we call the attention of the Tele
graph to the fact, in order that it may revise
'tte heretofore expressed opinions by the light
which Judge Pearson has shed upon the sub
At present we shall not carry our remarks
to any further extent, trusting that the Deacon
will act fairly, for once, and copy into his Col
-11M137 for the benefit of his readers, the fol
lowing short extract from Judge Pearson's
“Do not misunderstand me on this subject.
TO CONDEMN, and, if you please, RAIL AT

fairs,_ but not to decry the government under
which we live, or express hopes or wishes for
a dissolution of the Union, Las the Abolition..
ista have done and many bf them still do,] the
destruction or defeat of our armies, the suc
cess of the rebels, or of the rebellion.”
We can safely say that we have never trans
cended this limit. How many of Deacon Berg
ner's party can say so and not. lie ? How is it
with the Rev. Bishops and Elders, eulogized
as exemplary Christians and patriots, who
,openly and boldly, in all Conference, thanked
and "gave glory to God for our defeat at the
tfat end Ezeoed tvAttles of Ball Run ?".
Abolition Treason.
If Democrats were to utter sentiments which
the Abolition radical press and leading, pro
fessed and recognized frieiids of the adminis
tration promulgate with impunity, the na
tional prisons would soon be filled to overflow
ing, and a loud call and irresistible pressure,
would be made upon the President for sum
mary execution to be done upon the "Copper
heads" and "Traitors."
Van Wyck, chairman of one of the Con
gressional committees of investigation, a
Republican-Abolitionist of the purest water,
in speaking of the extensive swindles and rob
beries of some of Lincoln's officials, says
“The neck begins to chafe where the yoke
of this heavy burden is borne. The adminis
tration has feared to drive finish men from its
door, lest hostility should be aroused against
it. That which they supposed strength has
been the great source of weakness. With a
single exception, when has one of these men
been court martialed or punished ? To-day
they have injured the republic more than the
South in arms. Had they been arrested, and
placed under the gallows or in Fort Lafayette,
your army would have been stronger, your people
at home less dissatisfied. They cannot appreciate
the patriotism of stealing. Your army, for a
mere pittance, is deprived of all the luxuries,
and, at the same time, the necessaries of life ;
enduring all the privations of camp and the
dangers of battle, while they see base men
making mockery of the misfortune of the na
tion, coining gold from the sighs and tears of
the people."
The Boston Commonwealth—Sumner's mouth
piece—declares :
"It is our conviction that the blood and
treasure of this country are shamefully wasted,
and that it is the duty of the people to force their
rulers to the issue of freedom or slavery. If
the people are not 'up to this, every conscript
raised, every dollar paid will be wasted, as
badly as men and money have been wasted for
over two years. It is painful for us to avow a
lack of faith in our rulers ; but we should be
guilty of the same timidity and duplicity if we
did not do so."
But Wade—the immaculate Ohio Senator,
chairman of the Committee on the Conduct of
the War, and a prominent leader in his State
and in Congress of the bloody-minded, rule
or-ruin Abolition supporters of the administra
tion, goes faither than others, plunges boldly
into the very vortex of what our new expound
ers of the Constitution call treason, and ar
raigns the President and the administration
for abusing the trusts yeposed in them, mis
managing the war, and worse than all, charges
them by inuendo, if not directly and ex
plicitly, with betraying secrets of the highest
importance to the enemy.
All this has been done by an Abolition Con
gressional Committee, in a report printed by
order of Congress, and circulated among the
people, and yet the presses which are every
day filled with the vilest abuse of Democrats,
for simple, consistent, honest opposition to
unwise and unconstitutional measures, have
not a word of reproach or condemnation for
Wade and his committee, who have placed the
blame for all the failures which have occurred
upon the shoulders of the administration s and
stigmatized the President, the Secretary of
War and General Halleck—one or all of them
—as the betrayers or betrayer of the plans of
General Burnside to the enemy, Here is what
the committee say :
"The administration called by the people to
the head of the government, in this, the most
critical period of the nation's history, was more
record. The call of the President for money
and men had been more than complied with : no
legislation which he had deemed necessary had been
denied by Congress ; and the people have most
nobly and generously supported and sustained
what their representatives had promised in
their name. The same Congress, fresh from
their constituents, had again met, and there
could be no doubt that as they had before acted
so would they continue to act. It needs but
to refor to the history of the Congress just
closed, its prompt and thorough action, clothing
the Executive with the fullest power, placing at his
disposal all the resources of men and money which
this nation possessed, to prove that your com
mittee judged rightly, that Congress needed
no prompting from them to do its entire duty.
Not upon those whose duty it was to provide the
means necessary to put down the rehellion,
but upon those whose duty it was to rightfully ap
ply those means, and the agents they employed for
that purpose, rests the blame, if any, that the
hopes of the nation have not been realized,
and its expectations have been so long disap

"Gen. Burnside came to Washington to as
certain from the President the true state of
the case. He was informed by the President
that some general cfficers from the Army of
the Potomac, whose names he declined to give, had
called upon him and represented that General
Burnside contemplated soon making a move
ment, and that the army was so dispirited and
demoralized that any attempt to make a move
ment at that time must result in disaster ;
that no prominent officers in the Army of the
Potomac were in favor of any movement at
that time.
General Burnside informed the President
that none of his officers had been informed
what his plan was, and thenyroceedcd to explain
it in detail to the President. He urged upon the
President to grant him permission to carry it
out, but the President declined to do so at that
time. Gen. Barka and Secretary Stanton
were sent far, and then learned for the
_first time
of the President's action in stopping the movement ;
although Gsa. Bailee]: was previously aware
that a movement was contemplated by General
Burnside. Gen. Halleck, with Gen. Burnside,
held that the officers who had made those rep
resentations to the President should at once
be diemiseed the service.
— Gen. nurnside remained here at that time
for two days, but no conclusion was reached
upon the subject. When he returned . to his
camp he learned that many of the details V Use
general movement, and the details of the cavalry
expedition had become known to the rebel sympa
thizers in Washington, thereby rendering (hat plan
impraticable. When asked to whom he had
communicated his plans he stated that he hod
told no one in Washington except the PREsi-
DENT, Secretary STANTON and Gen. HAL
LECK, and in his camp none knew of it ex
cept one or two of his staff officers, who had
remained in camp all the time. He professed
himself unable to tell how his plans had be
come known to the enemy."
secretary Seward's Bell
"My Lord, I can touch a bell on my right
hand and order the arrest of a citizen in Ohio.
I can touch the bell again, and order the im
prisonment of a citizen in New York: and no
powtr on earth but that of the President can
release them. Can the Qaeen of England, in
her dominions, do as much ? "
Among others we have charged that thin
language was used by Wm. IL Seward, Secre
tary of State, to Lord Lyon, the British Min
ister. The fact is now deniedon the authority
of a letter from the Department of State, signed
Gat). E. B.'►zea, addressed to the editor of the
Lancaster Express, in which it is said that "no
such passage is to be found in 1f... Seuvrd's cor
reeporickner." upon the strength of this letter,
the Telegraph has waited some days for us " to
do Secretary Seward the common justice of
printing the fact that the nonsense attributed
to him was a vile forgery." We are sorry to
inform the Telegraph that it will have to wait
some time longer, as we are not at present
inclined io print any such fact; not because
we are disinclined to do Mr. Seward " common
justice," but because we are well satisfied that
he need the language, and that, therefore, it is
no " vile forgery." and no injustice has been
done him. It may be true that the language
quoted as used by the Secretary does not ap
pear in his correspondence, but we can only
make the concession suggested by the Telegraph
when Secretary Seward denies that he used the
reprehensible words attributed to him, and pro.
novices them a forgery. Lord Lyon is - the man
to appeal to for a withdrawal of the charge.
When he does so, or Seward denies it, it will
be time enough for us to say that injustice has
been done, and apologize for the agency we
have had in circulating the falsehood. At pre
sent, believing that Mr. Seward used the lan
guage quoted, as stated by Lord Lyon, we have
nothing to withdraw, and no apology to make.
In regard to the movement of the Army of
the Rappahannock, which we have already
stated commenced on Monday, the New York
World says the crossing of the river took place
at Port Royal, twelve miles below Fredericks
burg, adding that they are in possession of im
portant information which it would be impro
per to divulge—but the sequal, if it be what
is new hoped, will startle the entire country.

Pope's famous advance, The rebels have a
large force at most all of the fords, and annoy
our cavalry a good deal with light artillery.
News of the capture of TuscumbiarAlaba
ma, has been received by way of Memphis.
Col. Chalmers, who held the place with a strong
rebel force, was attacked on the 23d of April
by the Federal troops under Gen. Dodge and
defeated after a sharp contest, in which we lost
about one hundred killed and wounded. The
rebel loss is not stated. The place is now oc
cupied by the Federal troops. Tuscumbia is
about sixty miles east of Corinth, on the great
refined connecting with Virginia ; it is direct
ly south of Florence, on the south side of the
Tennessee, two or three miles from that river.
Our occupancy completely cuts the rebel com
munication by that route. .
Intelligence from Fort Royal, S. C., to the
26th, leave no doubt that another immediate
attack upon Charleston (if the preparation is
not meant for Savannah,) is meditated. The
information is substantially this :
Our troops are said to be embarking on trans
ports, which are conveying them to various
points between Port Royal and Charleston, and
it was currently reported in naval circles that
a renewed attack on the city would take place
on the 3d of May. Considerable shipments of
ordnance to the gunboats and Monitors had
been made. Strong positions have been taken
The troops on Folly island are intrenching
The iron-clad fleet has been fully repaired and
is ready for fresh operations. Two of the
Monitors are at Port. Royal and five are off
North Edisto. The Ironsides remains near
Charleston bar. The utmost activity prevails
on all sides.
Extensive naval preparations are making for
a movement—the design of which is not of
course divulged. The gunboats and transports
of the fleet are collecting. Several of the
transports which took troops to the points
named have returned to Port Royal, and are
taking on board other regiments.
By rebel deserters, who have come into the
Union camp, it was reported that new obstruc
tions had been placed in Charleston harbor,
which would not allow the smallest craft to
pass through. The rebel Secretary of War has
been in Charleston since the bombardment, and
expressed himself satisfied with the arrange
In Florida and around Fort Pulaski every
thing was quiet.
The command of Gen. Marmaduke, who was
recently defeated atVape Girardeau, Missouri,
by Gen. M'Niel, consists of regiments from
Missouri, Arkansas and Texas. They left Pow
hattan, Arkansas, on the 15th April, for the
natensible purpose of occupying Pilot Knob
and Cape Girardeau as a base of operations for
the Missouri expedition which Gen. Price is
now organizing in Arkansas, but their real
purpose was no doubt plunder. The latest
news we have of the defeated and retreating
marauders, is contained in St. Louis and Cin
cinnati dispatches of the 20th, and is up to 10
o'clock p. m. of the 28th ultimo. The St.
Louis dispatch gives the following from a cor
respondent of the Democrat;
At ten o'clock on Sunday night, a rebel regi
ment under Col. Newton, the advance guard of
Marmaduke's army, which was then retreating
from Cape Girardeau, were surprised when
three miles west of Jackson, while cooking
their supper and loitering around the camp
fires. Tbe small howitzers loaded with musket
balls and hauled by hand to within thirty yards
of them, were simultaneously discharged, kill
ing and wounding a large number. At the
same time the First lowa cavalry charged on
them, and not a man of the entire regiment is
supposed to have escaped, all who were not
killed or wounded being taken prisoners. Ail
their horses, guns, camp equipage, and several
thousand dollars worth of stolen property were
captured. Early next morning Gen. Vandever
advanced and saw the main body of the ene
my in full retreat. lie immediately followed,
keeping up a constant artillery fire in their
rear. At two o'clock p. m., Gen. M'Niel found
him, and the combined forces continued the
pursuit. Firing was heard all the afternoon,
and it is scarcely possible that the rebels can
escape. The force comprised four brigades
under Gen. Shelby, Cola. Bainbridge and Green,
and ten pieces of artillery. The First Nebras
ka infantry, under Col. Baumers, did the mint
lighting in the rebel attack on Cape Girardeau
and behaved with great gallantry. They were
posted in the woods about a mile front town and
kept llarmaduke's whole force in check, while
the guns from the forts played upon them,
doing considerable execution. The rebel bat
teries did no injury to the town. The enemy's
loss was about sixty killed and two hundred
The Cincinnati dispatch is the latest--it is a
special to the Philadelphia Bulletin, as follows:
Intelligence from Cape Girardeau is up to
ten o'clock p. m. of the 28th. A skirmish
took place between Gen. M'Niel's advance and
the rebel rear, but with what result, except
that M'Niel continued to drive them, is not
known. Fighting is believed to have taken
place nee: New Madrid laet evening.
By the arrival of the steamer Shelidrake at
New York on the 29th ult., from Havana on
the 23d, we have important news from Mexico.
The intelligence from Puebla is to the 3d, at
which date it asserts the French were in pos
session of the greater part of the city, only
two fortifications being then in the hands of
the Mexicans. The battle ha& been raging for
thirteen days, the Mexicans fighting bravely.
The French were compelled to fight from house
to house. Vernet de Laumiere, the French
general of artillery, was killed, as were several
other officers, and Gen. Gamier, of the 51st,
was severely wounded. The Mexican force in
the city is estimated at 20,000. Gen. Comon
fort, with 12,000 men, was holding the road
between Puebla and the city of Mexico. This
is French news.
. We hear from New Orleans that the steamer
Fox hattescaped from that city with a United
States paymaster on board, and had probably
made her way into Mobile. The paymaster,
it is said, had in his possession the sum of six
hundred thousand dollars, designed for our
troops in Louisiana.
An Indianapolis dispatch, April 29, says :
Dr. Dorsey, a resident of this place, formerly
of Maryland, was arrested to-day, charged with
treasonable correspondence with the rebels.—
He was sent to Louisville, where he will be
tried by court martial.
The land and buildings for many years past
occupied by the office of the National 'stem
gencer, (Washington city,) comprising about
twelve thousand square feet of ground, have
been purchased by Mr. William E. Spaulding
for the sum of $BO,lOO. This will not change
the long standing location of the National In
teltz:gencer, or interfere in any way with its
regular issue.
Intelligence from Milliken's Bend to 23d
April, says that six transports, the Tigress,
Empire City, Horizon, Anglo-Saxon, Modera
tor and N. J. W. Cheesman, had been selected
to run the Vicksburg batteries on that night.
A dispatch from Cairo, of the 30th, says it is
doubtful whether any of them succeeded in
passing. Four were known to be Sunk, and
if the other two got through they must have
been badly damaged, as the firing on them,
which commenced at midnight and continued
until daylight, was terrific. They were of
little value except as transports for troops.
River men of experience estimate the six to be
Worth probably $115,000.
LATER.—NEW YORK, May I.—The Tribune
prints extracts from a letter dated near Vicks
burg, which says that only one of the trans
ports was sunk in passing the rebel batteries
on the 23d. Consequently the other reports
of four being sunk, &e., is a canard.
Gen. Grant was reported at New Carthage.
The rebel rams up the Yazoo were supposed to
be about ready to come out, as a raft had been
cut to pieces and had floated out. It was re
ported that orders had been issued to the
whole army to march, with six days' rations,
Admiral Farragut reports the capture, on
the Bth April, of the steamer J. D. Clark, with
Major Howard of the rebel Commissary Depart
ment on board. He had been making exten
sive arrangements for the crossing of cattle to
the eastern shore of the river at various places.
Gen. Ellett's marine brigade has been ac
tively occupied on the Tennessee river. He
destroyed every grist and saw mill, and disil

Hamburg and Eastport were also destroyed. On
his return down the river his brigade was fired
on by the rebels, under Major White. The fire
was returned by the . gunboats. The rebels
fled, with - a loss of ten killed and twenty
wounded, Major White mortally. Our loss
was two killed and four wounded.
The court-martial at Cincinnati have con
victed F. Corbin and T. G. Graw of recruiting
inside our lines for the rebel service, and sen
tenced them to be shot on the 15th of this
month. Campbell, convicted a few days ago
as a rebel spy, was to have been hung at noon
yesterday. George Douges, of Butler county,
Ohio, found guilty of publicly declaring sym
pathy for the rebels, was sentenced to four
months' hard labor, and Wm. M'Elwee, of Illi
nois, convicted of aiding deserters to escape,
was sentenced to pay three hundred dollars and
remain in prison until the fine was paid. The
proceedings in all of these cases bad been ap
proved and confirmed by Gen. Burnside.
From Fairfax Court House, April 30, we
learn thit Gen. Stahl had just returned • from
a successful reconnoissance between Bull Run
Mountains and Blue Ridge. No force of rebels
was encountered, but there were slight skir
mishes with straggling parties of guerrillas.
Thirty-eight prisoners were taken, beside 100
horses and other spoils. It is now definitely
known that the rebels have no regular forces
north of the Rappahannock in Eastern Vir
A Fortress Monroe dispatch of Wednesday
says that some cannonading has been going on
on the Nansemond since yesterday morning,
where the steamers Commerce and Star ran thb
rebel batteries with great credit to their com
manders, Lieuts. Rowe and Horton, both of
the 09th New York. Our batteries on the op
posite side of the river replied to the rebel
batteries to draw the attention as much as pos
sible from the two boats, and that seems to
have caused Ate cannonading to be kept up
ever since.
From Hooker's army on the Rappahannock
the reports are unsatisfactory. It is said that
four corps d'armee crossed at Port Royal on
Wednesday—that cannonading and severe
musketry firing had been heard—and that the
sutlers had been ordered from Acquia Creek.
A dispatch dated four miles below Fredericks
burg, April 29, informs us of skirmishing go
ing on there, and gives a list of several woun
ded sent in, but no particulars. The dispatch
concludes :
Our batteries have just opened on the rebels,
but we fail to draw their artillery fire or to si
lence their musketry. Signal lights have been
observed in busy operation upon the heights
that border the Rappahannock, doubtlessly
used for the purpose of warnltg the rebels of
any movements of our army. The earthworks
and lines of defence extend far up along the
rebel side of the riier, and at night the reflec
tion of many camp fires lights up the sky for
miles. All conversation between the pickets
is now strictly prohibited, and even the teinp
ting bait of a piece of tobacco cannot procure
for the rebels •the luxury of a “Yankee news
A Murfreesboro' dispatch of April 30, re
ports the arrival that day within the Federal
lines of seventeen deserters. From all ac
counts a battle between Itoneorans and Bragg
is imminent. The latter is said to have been
reinforced largely by the arrival of General
Price, who is to command at Tullahoma while
Bragg takes the field. The deserters confirm
the report of the rebel advance to a point north
of Duck river. Some say Polk's troops have
moved eight miles north of Shelbyville, on the
road to Murfreesboro', and that Hardee is at
War Trace ; Bragg at Bell Buckle.
They say it is Breokinridge who is at Man
chester, and speak of him as fiommanding a
force. Rumors of reinforcements are cofirmed,
but the statements generally look like exagger
ation. Deserters say the rebel commanders
talk boldly and loudly of their intention to
drive Rosecranssout of Tennessee. Their men
get a quarter ration of bacon, but plenty of
A SI. John's, N. F., telegram, April2o, gives
a list of the passengers and crew who were
saved from the wreck of the Anglo-Saxon,
amounting in all to 207, to wit : thirty-three
cabin passengers, one hundred and three steer
age, and seventy-one of the crew. The number
of lost, therefore, is two hundred and twenty

fathoms of water. All the mails and cargo are
The foreign intelligence is of some impor
tance. The Polish insurrection was still
spreading. Sweden was putting herself on a
war footing. France was uneasy, and all the
western powers were watching Russia closely.
Our own relations with England do not seem
to be altogether free from difficulty. A good
deal of warmth is exhibited by the English
press on account of our Minister, Mr. Adams,
giving a special license, as is alleged, to a ship
to proceed from England to Matamoras, free
from interruption by American cruisers, to
carry supplies of arms and ammunition for the
Mexicans. Earl Russell's attention was called
to the subject, on the 16th of April, by a depu
tation of shippers and merchants interested in
the Mexican trade, and he promised to give it
his attention. The following article in the
Paris Moniteur of April 18, was attracting
much attention in London
" The growing hostility of the United States
towards England is exciting uneasiness in London.
The last dispatches from the Washington gov

The London Tithes is very bitter on the let
ter of the American Minister, Mr. Adams, to
Admiral Dupont, exempting a certain ship for
Mexico from England, and calls it an arrogant
assumption. It says there has been nothing
equal to it since Popish bulls were issued from
Rome overriding the laws of England. It
adds : " The exercise of the slightest authority
by foreign Ministers in England is not to be
permitted for one moment after the assumption
of power either condemning or absolving is
made known."

since we requested our friends at Harrisburg,
who had subscription money to remit us,
pay it over to either Brother A. X. Shoemaker
or Jacob Hickernell; as several letters contain
ing money, mailed at that office, failed to
reach us. This week we are notified of another
letter containing money, mailed there on the
14th instant, (April,) which as yet has not
come to hand. We hope no more money witl
be mailed at that office till further orders."
It seems to me your Postmaster should in
quire into this, or the Department should send
an agent to unravel the mystery. Where there
is so much fire there must be some smoke.
Your's, &o. HONESTY.
