The American Church.
When the Abolitionists, for years in
succession, offered and adopted iti public
meetings their famous resolutions that
''the only exodus of the slave is over the
ruins of tho American Union," they al
ways coupled with it, also, "thn ruins of
tho American Church." It was always
a part of the plan of tlio radical Aboli

period when tho treason which they plot
ted thould be perfect in its work and the
once liapjsy republic reduced to be but a ,
desolate memory, in the progress ot
their work, brought so near to final suo
cess as it has been by a bargain with dem
agogues and political managers, tho in
telligent observer has not failed to note
tho undermining process by which they
have fchaken the foundations of the nation.
Hence the frequent warnings which con
servative men have sounded in the cars of
the people, warnings unheeded nutil tho
catastropho became so imminent that it
seemed next to impossible to avoid it. It

have worked with all their forces, hen
the war began they woro disappointed
A war for the Union was not what they
wanted. It will bo remembered that
they were advocates of the right of seces
sion, and in their principal organs strong
ly maintained the "go in peace" doctrine.
A separation of ihc States would have sat
isfied their immediate demands, but they
would probably havo advocated a war
and invasion of the Southern States at a
late period for the purpose of effecting tho
destruction of slaveholders, against whom
their animosity was fierce, For it must
bo borne in mind that the real animus of
Abolitionism lias always been
tho slaveholder, aud not love for the slave.
Tho war coming on, it was tho Abolition
ists plan to prevent its remaining a war
for the Union and convert it into a war
for abolition. Tho determination of tho
whole body of Abolitionists, original and
recent, is openly avowed to bo anti-Union
now. A conditional Union of somo sort
is held out aa a nrctencc on which to rest
tl.n olaim of Unionism. That it is but a

the painful reality. In many directions
we find tho unity of tho church broken up
and tho fragments arrayed on ono or the
other sido of political or national questions.
In many pulpits, North, South, East and
West, we hear denunciation instead ot in
struction, war instead of peace. Tlio
clergy havo, in a vast degree, lost their
hold on tho afi'ectious and the respect of
tho people. The most exciting political
meetings aro held in churches on Sundays,
and tho harangues aro interrupted with
tumultuous applause. Nor aro theso the
only or tho most serious evidences of a
dangerous ohangc. Tho infidelity which
is preached from pulpits, applauded in
nowspapers, and instilled into the minds
of tho psoplo, young and old, is becoming
moro open, unblushing, and defiant. Tho
supremacy of reason over tho Bible is as
serted in hundreds of pulpits commonly
called "orthodox." "I would not believe
such a doctrino if I found it in tho Bible,"
or "I would reject the Bible if I believed
it contained such doctriuo," is tho fre
quent assertion of this suprcmaoy on tho
lips of religious toachcr. The fact that
the Biblo does condemn many of the fa
vorite doctrines and praotioes of modern
radicalism his already led, to a want of

Wo need not cito example of this. They
arc painfully conspicuous. Wo except
some largo bodies of the Christian church,
and many worthy, noble ministers of tho
truth, from, tho evil of which wo speak.
Hut that evil is so manifest, and tho enmi
ty of tho Abolitionists to tho American
church so nearly successful, that tho ago

delity in our cojntry .
Tho year 180t will probably witness
the crises of our fate as a nation. Wo are
pressing on tho old track of the French
infidels toward a similar stato of affairs.
We havo already lost the graud conserva

solidity of tho Christian faith and its calm
supremacy over all earthly considerations.

it is not strango to find the minds of all
the people, even of thoso not tinctured
with radicals heresies, faithless, and rath
er given to thinking that wo may havo all
been wrong in our religious ideas and ed

in the year and years to come, no man

Letter from Gen. MeClellan to
the Secretary of War.
On Juno 128th, General MeClellan ad
.dressed the following letter to Secretary
Headquarters Aumy of the
Potomac, Savage's Station,
June 28, 1802 l'i-20 A. M.
I now know the full history of tho day.
On this side of the river tho right bank
wo rcnulsed soveral strong attacks. On
tho left bank our mcu did all that soldiers
could accomplish but they woro ovsr
whelmed by vastly superior numbers even
after I brought my last reserves into ac
tion. The loss on both eitles is terrible. I
believe it will prove to be the most terrible
.battle of tho war. The sad romuauts of
my men behaved as men ; those battalions
' who fought most bravely, and suffered
m-st aro still in tho best order. The reg
I were superb, and I count upon what
1 are left to turn another battle in company
' or even (10,000) ten thousand fresh troops
to use to-morrow, I could take Richmond
but I have not a man in reserve, and shall
be glad to cover my retreat and savo tho
material aud "personal," of the army. If
wc havo lost the day, wo havo yet preser
ved our honor, and no ono need blosh for
tho Army of tlio Potomac. I havo lost
this battle bcoauso my force was to small,
I again repeat that I am not responsible
for this, and I say it with tho conscious
ness of a General who fools in his heart
tho loss of every bravo man who has been
needlessly sacrificed to-day. I still hopo
to retrieve our fortunes ; but, to do this
tho Government must view tho mattor in
thc samo earnest light that I do. You
must send mo very largo reinforcements,
and send them at onco. I shall draw
back to this sido of tho Ohickahomiuy,
and I think I can withdraw all our ma.
tcrial. Please understand that iu this bat
tle wo lost nothing but men, and these tho
best we have. In addition to what I havo
already said, I only wish to say to tho
President that I think ho is wrong in re
garding mo as ungenerous when I said that
my forco was too weak. I merely intima-
tod a truth which to-day has been too
plainly ptovou. If, at this instant, I
coulddisposo of (I0,000)ton thousand fresh
men I could gain tho victory to-morrow .
I know that-a fow tkousand moro auon
would have changed tho battle from a. de-
feat to a victory. As it is, tho Govern-
ment must not, cannot, hold mo responsl-
tho gamo is lost. If I savo this army now
I tell you plainly that I owo no thanks to
nor any person in Washington.
You have dono your best to saorifieo this

How Soldiers live in Winter.
A correspondent of tho Pittsburg Chron
icle writing from tho camp of tho 4th
Pcnua. Regiment at Dcoliard Station, Ten
nessee, thus describes how tho men mako
themselves comfortable in winter : "Tho
camp is laid out in regular order, with an
cyo to health, comfort, and beauty. Tho
company streets arc all one width, twenty
feet. Tho houses of tho enlisted men arc
all one size and appearance, Willi a spaco
between those of each company, while the
internal arrangements aro all nearly the
same each houso has two bunks and ac
commodates four men. The most of tho
houses aro built of logs, somo few of
boards, but the dimensions of all aro tho
same. Each houso is provided with a firo
place and chimney, built of brick, in tho
rear, opposite tho contro, while tho door
opens out in front, opposite the centre, to
tho company street. Now let the reader
imagine ono company having twenty-four
houses, each other company having tho
samo number, tho dimensions of each tho
same, and as follows: ten feet long, cicht
feet wide, and four feet high, with four
shcltor-tcnts for a covering, having a reg
ular pitch, forming the roof. Placo twelve
of thoso on a line, frouting longlh wise,
with a space of two feet between each, the
door of each opening out on that line op

This spaco is called tho company street,

than a company hut, but other dimensions

tho execution of Alico Hewitt, at Chester
for tho murder of her mother. Sho in

upon her life. She then killed her mother
by tho administration of poison. Somo
thrco or four thousand persons woro pres.

knees, and prayed that her infant child
might be spared a similar fate, and that
her death might be a warning to others.

Suro Cure for Dipthcria.
SYMPTOMS AND" THE AT MENT.
1'ai.myiiA, Iowa, Jan'y IS, 1804.
Mr. A. M. ItAMno, Ed. Col. Spy :
In accordance with your request I Bend
you a description of tho sympatoms, and
an account of tbo treatment of that fearful
scourogo Dipthcria. You can rely on it
with tho utmost confidence, as it has ncvor
been known to fail, thougli used to my
porsonal knowledge in over ono thousand
cases. I send to ynu cheerfully, and hope
every newspaper in tho nation will copy.
Symptoms. I cannot enumerate all of
the symptoms, as they vary in their char
acter. Generally, tho first symptom I a
noticed i3 difficulty in swallowing, with a although she would gladly havo avoided
continual spitting and hawking to clear 1 bucIi a disgraceful affair in tho house of
the throat, and a feeling of more or loss 1 God, yet not fccliug herself tiblo or will

ing of tho bones, with a paiu at tho auglo 1 her, pounced upon Mis3 T. and gavo her
of tho lower jaw, and sometimes swelling a pretty severo thrashing. Finding that
of tho glauds at that placo. Uowels cos- , it would bo impossible to keep the pin in
tive. By examining the tongue it will be her possession, Miss T. threw it to one of
tound coated witti winte, sometimes a
whitish yellow ; the tontils will bo found
moro or les3 swollen, and if tho disease
has advanced to any cxtonl, they will bo
partially or wholly covered with a whitish ,
leathery membrane, which makes it ap- J
pear as if the throat was filled with little
As the disoaso advances this membrane
keeps forming until it extends into tho
air tubes, which makes tho breathing
quick and difficult, and tho patient be-1
comes very restless ; and toward tho last
makes convulsivo efforts for breath, but
nature yields her Bway, and tho patient
dies of suffocation !

Disgraceful Fracas in a Church.
Twenty Mile Stand, Ohio, )
January 0, 1804. S
2b the Editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
A most disgraceful affair occurred in
one of our neighboring churches on last
Sabbath afternoon, immediately after tho
closo ot divine service, and which was wit
ncssedby the wholo congregation, tho min
ister hiiusolf not being excepted. As a
young lady (Miss M. by name) was pass
im; ui) one of the aisles, and just as sho
camo opposite a pew in which Miss T.
was standing, ho was suddenly and un
ceremoniously attacked by her ladyship,
who seized nnd tore off her hat, on tho
ribbon of whieh she woro a butternut
breastpin. Miss M., who, by tho way, is
verv nluokv and independent young Miss
licr sisters who was standing by, and to
whoso credit I believe I can truthfully say
was rather ashamed of tho disgraceful no
tions of her unladylike sister, but who,
bowevcr, took possession of tho unlucky
At this juncture in the affair, another of
Miss 'i s bisters stepped un and demanded

A Wholk Family Frozen to Death,
By tho passengerj who arrivod hero ori
the Cbntral Railroad last night from tho
West, wo learn of ono of tho moat fearful
and heart-rending affairs that has ovor
occu'rrod in this section of tho country,
namely : thai a family of seven persons
wero frozen to death during tho celd
wcathor on Friday last. About 30 milea
from the boundary lino bolwcen Michi
gan and Indiana, in the Utter Stato, nboui
midway between Centrcvillo and Crown
Point, lived a German, with his wifo and
and fivo children, named Krutzor, Tho
oldest was a boy of seven years of ago, tho
next a boy of fivo, and thrco girls, 'all of
less ago than tho two boys, tho youngosi
but arl infant.
The country wbero tho family resided
is very rolling, and tho snow had drifted
into tbo hollows, making tho roads almost
if not wholly impassable for oven pedes
trians. The driver of tho ctago coaoh ooming
from Crown Point to Lake, via Centro
ville, found that Krutzcr's dwelling had
been burned to the ground, it is supposed
tho night previously, but none of the fam
ily wero to be seen. About a rnilo fur
ther on, bowover, he was horrified to find
the father and two boys frozen to death.
The boys were in the father's arms, and
it is supposed that ho bad fallen with
them after having been as far affected
with tho frost as not to bo able to proceed.
Tho thrco corpses wero pli.ccd in the stage,
but beforo it had proceeded moro than a
quartor of a mile on its destination, tho
body of tho oldest girl was found in a
snow drift, with a shawl wrapped olosely
around it, where it had doubtless bsen do
posited by its weary mother whilo yet
alive, in tho hope that some chance trav
eler might rescue it from aninpendingfato.
This corpse, too, was placed in tho coach
and again it started on its way, only to
find, after travelling a Bhort distance, tho'
lifeless remains of tho mother, with tho
two youngest children. Tho body of the
mother was standing erect in a snow drift
with tho children in her arms, the young
est ono being at tho breast.
The seven lifeless bodies wero convey
ed to Centrcvillo by tho driver of tho stago,
at whioh placo they wero decently interred
by tho inhabitants. Detroit Advertiser t
