Sound Doctrine.
Said Judge Skinner= in one ofhig recent elo=
quent and telling speeches to the _New York
Democracy—“ We have been induced, misre
presented, and, it is possible, misunfierstood.
For what is, and has been, our position in re
gard to this war? It is that. expressed by Gen.
M’Glellan. [Here the speaker was interrupted
by tremendous applause, and three deafening
cheers for ‘Little fine ’1 We will give the last
man and the last. dollar to prosizcute a war for
the maintenance of the Union and the Oomtilu‘
tion, but we will never submit to the disruption of
the one, nor :iae violation afflze oiher. Our rights
under that sacred instrument we cannot and
will not. surrender.”
“Not for Want of Means.”
The Toronto (Canada) Globe, which has sup
ported the cause of the Union against rebel
lion ever since the war commenced, in} an ar
ticle on the President’s last call for 300,000
more, says : .
“It is not. for want of means that the admin—
istration of Mr. Lincoln will break down.”
No. certainly not. He has had all the means
he has called for—fabulous sums of money and
men almost innumerable—means enonghmnder
wise direction, 1.0 have conquered half the
world, but which under his management has
utterly failed to crush armed rebellion. It. is
not for want of means that his administration
will fail, but. for want of ability and honesty.
A more incompetent. and dishonest set of ru
lers no country has ever been burdened with;
and it. is because they lack both sense and
honesty that they will go down, and be fol
lowed in their {all by the outspoken curses of
the present generation and {he maledictions of
the yet unborn generations which are to fol—
lew. .
The Naked Truth.
Judge Parker, in a speech recently delivered
by him at the Cooper Institute, New York,
said:
“We complain that the war is not prosecu
ted to a. speedy termination. We complain
that its object and purposes are perverted to
partisan ends- A in waged for the single
purpose of suppressing the rebellion and re
storing the Union would have ended long ago.
A war for the extermination of slavery will be
interminable.”
Every word of this is true, and deserves the
serious consideration of the hoopla. If we
adopt the Abolition platform that the seceded
States are foreign, and must be treated as
such—that they must take such laws
and adopt such custom to we choose to'
prescribe for them—flint they are to he
subjugnterl and coerced into the adoption
of the creed of New England fanatics,
and mode to conform to Yankee ideas and
habits, we may as well makeup our minds. that
the Ear is to he interminn'ble, for certainly no
man now living. perhaps not a. child born
within the present year, will live to see [he end
of it. This is not idle speculation, but solid
truth, which every intelligent, clear-minded
man must at once perceive if he will psy but
the'slightest attention to the subject. The
administration of Abraham Lincoln, without a.
change of policy, sonnet terminate this we:
and save the Union. It is impossible, and
those Republicans who really desire peace and
Union, squirm as they moy, m 1! find, sooner
or later, that there is but one way of obtain
ing them, and that is by joining the Democra
tic party, and placing statesmen, instead of
fanatics and chlrlatauu, in power. Until this
shall be done the war will last, unless—which
we do not expect to see—the Abolition "admin
iatrntion shall relinquish its present policy and,
designs, and adquf the aoundfir views of those
whom it. now denonnooa as rebel aympsthizem
Ind traitors. ' V -'. a . ‘ .

from a responsible correspondent:
Amupons, Md, Oct. 29.—The flag of truce
boat‘New York arrived at the Naval School
wharf this morning. from City Point. with 181
men; eight of the number died on the boat on
the way hither. having been actually starved
to death. Never in all my life have I seen
such a scene as these men presented—they
were livin‘g skeletons—every man of them had
to be sent to the hospitals, and the surgeon's
opinion is that more than one-third of them
must die, being beyond the reach of nourish
ment or medicine. I questioned several of
them, and all state the: their condition has
been brought on by the treatment they re
ceived at the hands of the rebels. They have
been kept without food, and exposed, a. large
portion of the time, without shelter of any
kind; To look at these poor men and hear
their tales of woe, howthey have been treated,
one would not suppose that they had fallen
into the hands of the southern chivalry. but
rather into the hands of-eevege barbarians,
destitute of all humanity or feeling!
FROM HAVANA AND ST. DOMINGO.
New YonK, Oct. 30.—Advices from Havana

Wasnmarox, October 30.—Ihe Star of this
evening contains information that on the 27th

planned and executed under the direction of
Gen. Smith, chief of engineers in the Depart-'
ment of the Cumberland, two wagon roads and
the use of the river lines of supplies were no
quired for the forces at Chattanooga, thus re
lieving the command of Gen Thomas of its
chief embeueasment. Gen. Smith’s operations
at the mouth of Lookout valley are spoken of
as a great success, and their brilliancy cannot

HEAVY SKIRMISHING—THIRTY-FOL'R MULE TEAMS
AND FOUR WAGONS CAPTI’RED BY GUERILLAS.
[Sneeial dispatch to the Washington ChronieleJ
anasrown, VA., Oct. BEL—CoI. Devin’s
command moved from Liberty on Sunday.
The took up a position on both sides of what
was oneethe railroad, picketing from Morris
ville to Bealton. During the entire day, after
arriving at their new post. there were no signs
of the enemy. The day following, whiehmvas
Monday, a heavy column of infantry, preceded
by cavalry, was seen advancing along the
railroad from Rappahannock Station. After
deploying to the right and left, a large body of
infantry anti eavelry marched toward Elkwn.
The.l7lh Pennsylvania were on picket in the
neighborhood, and it was almost impossible for
Major Darling to get back to the main portion
of his regiment with one squadron he had at
this plane. .Skirmishing soon began, and Co].
Gregg’s brigade upon our right found the
enemy near him. " Our men slowly retired
before the foe, it being our design to draw
them into a belt of woods, near Germantown,
where we could make good use of one brigade
of infantry belonging to the 3d corps. As the
enemy neared Bealton, I could distinctly dis
cern his heavy line of dismounted skirmish
ers; our men remaining on their horses, and
manoeuvring upon the field as if. they enjoyed
the sport. Lieutenant Vincent opened his
section upon them, and shortly afterwards the
rebels replied with a small'Blakely gun, which
failed to do us any damage. The cannona
ding grew louder and fiercer. Two other sec
tions were opened by the rebels._ and. did no
better execution. Lieutenant Heston, of the
2d United States artillery, had his pieees in
position some distance in the rear of our ad—
vance, and fired several rounds at their ad
vance. All our efforts to decoy them'into:the
woods proved futile. HaVing advanced so far,
they refused to come any nearer. This was
nothing more than one of the many reconnai
teringparties sent by them so frequently of
late. The 4th New York had two meniwoun—
ded, also the 6th New York. It is hard to tell
the rebel strength, and where it is located- At
least two divisions of infantry appear on this
side, and officers who have been near the Rap
pahannock' say they see the smoke of large
camp fires.
Inst night, on the road between New Balti
more and Warronton, about thirty-four six
mule teams and {our wagons were captured.
The guard was riding along in advance of the
teams. The guerrillas allowed them to go;
then stopped the drivers and made them un
hitch. ‘ Mcß. '
ARMY OF THE CUMBERLAND
The Washington correspondence of the New
York Evening Post contains the following:
Not. a doubt exists here that we are soon to
hear of terrific fighting near Chattanooga..—
The rebel lenders are determined. before the
wintereloses in, to compel the Army of the
Cumberland to abandon Chattanooga. They
have given “p all hope of making an attack in
front, or‘of shelling General Thomas out of
his position. but will probably endeavor to
compel him to retreat, by throwing a heavy
force upon his'commuuications. Gen. Grant:
is mucking their mo'émenta closely, and, un
less they not very suddenly. it. is'quite poséible
that they will be compelled to defend their own
position, rather than occupy themselves with
offensive plans. The best Judges of the posi
tion any that it. is impossible to postpone fight—
ing much longer, for both armies are anxious
for a. decisive battle before the winter weather
will put an and to miliuu-y open-aliens.

Weeniseros. Oct. 29.—Adviees from Ghats
tonnage, up to the 21st, represent the situation
of affairs as one ‘of perfect quiescence. Our
position there is perfectly safe, if strong forti
fications can make it so. Chattanooga is en
circled by a line of works as‘"formidable as
those around Washington. The line is short,
but well chosen, and very' strong. The game
can be said of the enemy. If they cannot take
Chattanooga from the trout, neither can we
advance upon them with success. They hoid
the mounteinseneircling the town, with both
their flanks resting upon the Tennessee river.
Ne advance can be made by either party, save
by s flank movement. '
The greatest embarrassment is the question
of supplies. The late reins have made the
roads so bad that the tenmsnhsve to make a
eircuit of eighty miles, and even then cannot
get through. As yet, the troops do not sutfer,
though they have been on half rations. But
the animals are greatly in want of forage, and
the common animals are flying by scores from
hunger. Bodies of troops have in consequence
been scattered over a large tract of country to
forage.

RECEPTION 01‘ TH]! .MBKIGAN MINISTER.
Senor Romero, ié'fiompafiiéd by the Score
tary of State, called upon the President, and
having presented his credentials. was received
as Envoy Exl'raordinary and Minister Pleni
potentiary of the Juarez 01‘ Liberal Govern
ment in Mexico.
The following is a. translation of the Mexi
can Minister’s speech:
I have the; honor to place in your Excellen
cy's bands the letters of the Couafitutional
President of the United Mexican States. which
accredit me as Envoy Extraordinary sud‘Min
isLen Plenipotentiary of Mexico near your Ex
cellency’a Government. Two neighbering and
friendly notions, which divide between them
the richest portions of the continent, and
which are ruled by identical institutions, from
which they hope their fntni‘e prosperity and
sggrsndizement, which impart “thentUnitedv
Sate! have already attained, can no less then:
have identical interests, which will he lug
meuted and strengthened in .0” great degree by
drawinilmoreclpse together‘the friendly rela
tions w 'eh hippily exist between them, and
by devalopifig their commercial interests,
through which both will in the result be me.-
teriollyghenefited. The Government sn'd'peo
ple of Mexico profess the greatest-friendship
and consideration for the Government and peo
ple of the; United States of America, and fer
vently desire the prosperity, sggraudizemfent,
and welfare of 'this country. On'me has fallen.
the honor to come here to express these senti
ments of good will, and, in the discharge of,
my official duties; my greatest efi'orts will he
directed to the accomplishment of the“ desires
of my Government, which are also mine, to
maintain and strengthen the bonds of friend
ship which connect Mexico with the United
States, and to promote the development of the
commercial interests, which willdraw more
closely together the ties by which the two so
tions are already united. Ido not doubt but
that, in the discharge of the missiou'confided
to me, I shall meet with the co-operotion of
the Government of your Excellency, and it will
be very satisfactory to me to succeed in de
serving your spprobetion. -
The President replied as follows;
M. Romero: You have heretofore resided
with us, end for a considerable period have!
been the ohiel“ diplomatic representative of
your country at this capital. You know how
sincerely and how profoundly. during that
residence, the United States desired that Mex
ico might always enjoy the blessings of domes
tic and- foreign peace with perfect security,
prosperity, independence and freedom. You
know, also, that during the previous residence
here, to which I' have referred, you enjoyed
the respect and esteem of the Government and
the good will of the people of the United States.
I have the pleesure of assuring you that in all '.
things nfl’eoting your country, as yourself per
sonally, these feelings remain unchanged.—
Thenking you for,the liberal sentiments you
have expressed in regard to the United States,
end congratulating you upon the renewed con—
fidence which your Government has reposed in
you, it is with unufl'ected pleasure that I bid
you welcome on your return to Washington.
Anonr five years ago, a Mr. Wallace pur
chased an estate in Roascommon, Ireland, on
which has a. lake called Cox-kip, or Kcoghville,
covering 137 acres and containing several
islands, with a depth of water varying from
5 feet to 16 feet. Some attempts had been
made by former proprietors to drain this lake,
but they were frustrated by the. obstinacy of
other landlords and the superstition of the
peasantry. Nothing Jaunted, however, Mr.
Wallace employed 40 or fifty men and made an
arterial cut two and a half miles long connect
ing the lake with the river at Milltown Fan.
This cut is 4 feet wide at the bottom and 13
feet at top, and in some places 18 feet deep.“
For a mile it passes through solid rock, which
had to he blasted. The result is that the lake
has disappeared, and in its place is a large
tract of rich alluvial soil, giving every promise
of luxuriant vegetation.
WE ACCEPT rm: COMPLIMEM'.—On last
Thursday evening. when the mail arrived
showing that Cut-tin had my! carried the State
by forty, nor thirty, not- even twenty thousand,
as had been and was still claimed by the lying
Harrisburg Telegraph, several leadlng Repub
licans very candidly admitted that if the
Puma! AND Umou had net admitted the de
feat of the Democracy, they would despair of
the election of Curtin. ~
This was :1 high complimentathough unin
tentional—to the reiiability of Democratic
authority, and at the some time a withering
rebuke to the falsehoods imposed upon the
country by the Abolition sheets.—C’learfield
Republican, Oct. 19.
Mrsnmsenseum and twist the truth as they
may, the radicals know that the Democracy
have done their whole duty in supporting the
administration in all legitimate ways, in its ef
forts to put down the rebellion, and. that. they
will continue to dose. But to aid it in over
throwing the Constitution. crushing the rights
of States and of .the people, and erecting a.
military despotism upon the ruins of our free
republic, is what in the future as in the past
it. will be their glory to have resisted with all
their strength, and by every legitimate means
by which God aud-thelaws have placed in their
hands. “Here stand they by God’s help, and
can do no otherwise."—Boston Courier.
THE EFFECT OF PRIVATEBRING 0N AMERICAN

Almighty God, for the gathered harvests of
the fruits of the Earth;
For the prosperity with which He has
blessed the Industry of our people; ' . ,
For the general health and welfare which"
He has graciously bestowed upon them ;
And for the crowning mercy by which the
blood-thirsty and devastating enemy was dri

freemen of this and other States;
And that tbty do especially pray for the
continuance of the‘blessings which have been
heaped upon us by the Divine Hand;
And for the safety and welfare and success

strengthened to the overthrow and confusion
of the rebels nowin arms against our beloved
country: _ ,
So that peace may be restored to all our bor

sustained.
Given under iny hand and the great seal of the

Dr. Sweet’s Inmllible Linimem for Horse
is unrivaled by any, and in all cases of Lemenese: ari
elng from Spraine, Bruises or Wrenching, its efl'ect is
magical and certain. Harness or Snddle (galls, Scratch
es, Mange, &c.. it will also euro speedily. Spavln and
Ringbone may be easily prevented and cured in their
incipient stages, but confirmed cases are beyond the
possibility of a. radical cure. No case of the kind, how
ever, is so desperate or hopel 833 but it may be alleviated
by this Liniment, and its faithful application will al
ways remove the Lamenese, and enable the horse to
travel with comparative ease.
Every horse owner should have this remedy at hand,
for its timely use at the first appearance of Lemenese
will effectually prevent those formidable diseases men—
tioned, to whieh ell horses are liable‘ find which render
so many otherwise valuable horses nearly worthless.
