but a genuine money making thing ! Read
' the Circu ar of instruction once on!, and
you will understand it perfectly. A Lady
hat just written to me that the is making
as high as TWENTY DOLLARS SOME
DAYS! giving instructions in this art.
Thousands ot Soldier are making money
rapidly at it. ft is a thin; that takes better
than auy thing ever offered. You can
make money with it home or abroad on

country or city. You wiil be pleased in
pursuing it, not only because it will jield
a handsome income, but also in conse
baence of the general admiration which it
elicits, h id pretty much ail profit. A
mere trifle is necessary to-start with.
There is scarcely one person oat of
' tbousaads who ever pa's any attention to
advertisements of this kind, thick'mg ihey
are humbugs. Consequently thoi-e who da
end for infractions will have a broad
field to make money fn. There is a class
of persons in this world who would think
that because they have been humbugged
out of a dollar or so, that everything that
is advertised is a humbug. Consequently
the trj no more. -The person who suc

This art cost me on thousand dollars,

For the Star o the North.
Spring is the time wheu flowers
Bedeck the youthful path,
That scatters iar those gloomy hours,
Caused by the stormy blast.
Oh ! pleasant Spring to thee, -
Our songs will we upraise
And as thy bounteous pleasures flea
Our songs we'll not delay;
But when spring pleasares all depart,
Are there no others near ?
Yes, Summer with a cheerful heart,
Our youthful path will cheer.
But Summer, too, with all its charm
Will, like the Spring, decline,
And all its pleasures and alarms
Will cheerfully resign.
Then Auinirm with its cooling breeze
Wid fan our Uinting'brow,
When pleasant Summer's verdant leaves
Are dropping Irom their bough.
But Autumn, like the Summer bofcer,
To cooler seasons cede,
And long but cheering winter hours
We'll hail with, noble deed.
Ah ! Win er yet may have a pang,
At present vol peiceived,
For coid and icy letters bang,
Which we cancot relieve.
But Winter p'easores must depart
As warmer days appear,
Thus as revolving seasons pars
We greet am ther year.

A Page cf History.
There is no passage in history which is
more deeply interesting, ione on which
the pen cf the his.orian will dwell with
more eloquence, than that which relates to
the condition of the United States, its army :
and its capital, on the last Jay of August, :
1862. Ihe report of General McClellan
now for the first time collects and mukes
clear the various incidents which are to fill
this important page in onr national record.
We regret that the Congressional edition,
the Republican Record edition, and cthr
cheap editions of the report are incomplete
ami inaccurate, ommitting eutirely oine
portions which present the most interest
ing and important view of the relations of
General McClellan to the Cabinet, ihe ar
my and Ihe country. The edition publish
ed under General McCiellan's authority is
accurate The omission was doubtless ur. -intentional,
some pages of copy having
fallen from a corupooitor's desk, or been
mislaid, in the government printing- office,
and the re primers who have followed that
edition have produced imperfect copies.
General M Clellan was not at that time
removed from ihe command of the army,
but the army was removed from his co.n
mand by ati ingenious device of the War
Department. He was treated with con
temptuous indifference by Gen. Halleck.
When ordered to abandon the Peninsula be
was so anxioos for an interview with Gen.
Halleck. and a free consultation, that he
proceeded from Harrison's BarXj the near
est telegraph station, and there finding that
the wires were broken under wa'.er, he
crossed Chesapeake Bay, arriving at Cher
ry tbue Inlet, en the east shore, about
miduight. He immediately telegraphed to
Washington, informiug Gen. Halleck that
he had come all this distance to consult
with him, and requested him to come .to
the War Department end of the wire. Gen.
IJ , 1 1 a L- mm. and int a hrip.f and mma
. ... . , flanara.
M'Clellan was aeciphenng this reply (it
was their private cipher), the operator in
formed him that Gen. Halleck had left the
Washington office without ao much as say
ing good night, and that further telegraph
ing was useless ? General M'Clellan re
turned to his array, brought it away from
the scene of its noble exploits, stood him
self, last man of all, on the deserted ground,
and left the Peninsula with the conviction
that a great error was in progrees. at Wash
ington. At Fori Monroe he wrote a dis
patch to Gen. Halleck, mournfully eloquent,
speaking of the services of his brave array
and begging Halleck to recognize them.
He said :
Please say a kind word to my army,
that I can report to them ia general orders
in regard to their conduct at Yorktown,
Wiliiaiasburgh, West Point, Hanover Court
House, and on the Chickahominy, as 'well
as in regard to the seven days and the re
cent retreat. No one "has ever said any
thing to cheer them bat myself. Say noth
ing about me. Merely give my men and
will do jou much gQQl and will atreDgthea
you much with them if you issue a hand
some order for them in regard to what they
have accomplished. They deserve it."
Verily they did deserve it. They were
an army of heroes, brought home from
fields of as gallant fighting as ihe world
ever saw. But there was no reply to the
request of their general. Triey received no
kind word, no cheer, no thanks. They were
hurried home, to be hurled into the jaws of
death under a commander selected to dis
plp.ce a general who had hitherto, shared
their fortunes. M'Clellan came to Alexan
dria. What was hi position and relation
to the army ? He himselfdid not know.
The process ol depriving him of his com
mand was going forward. Pope's Army of
Virginia absorbed the Army oi the Potomac.
Fur seven days that noble army disappears
from history. It had no exi-tence. Mc
Clellan was left at Alexandria, still the
commanding general of the Army ol the
Potomac, but there is an eloquence winch
every heart mut Ifel in his simple narra
tive ot what remained to him of his ouce
magnificent command. . Leas than one hun
dred men, many of. these invalids and
wounded men, were the sole repiet-enta-
lives ct the Army of the Potomac. jo rand j neglecting and even insulting him. The
is the contrast which this narrative allords ' President and Secretary of War had ysnld
betweun the days which preceded and ed to the radical politicians who were
those which followed the 1st of August, ihat ; hounding the young general, and on the
it may be suspected as intentional that the ' evening of the 30lh, when the War
narrative is omitted from ne incomplete Department issued its order, Wahington
ediuo'.s ol the Report. But we preter to ' radicalism was jubilant, and all believed
regard it as accidental, especially in view
of other mid numerous errors- w hich occur
in the same editions.
The secret history of political marasavr
ing at Wellington at this lime wonl i, if
ma-Je put-he, explain th whole responsi
bility ur trie iii.-airous campaign ol Pope.
The Hood of our thousands lost on those .
fatal plains of. Manassas is chargeable di- J
rectly on ihe iniriuues of Washington poli-1
ticiais of the radiccl pany, who only de
sired to r move M'Clellan from the public
view, bectiut-e they leared that the splendor
of lus genius, the devotion of his army, the
nobtene.-s of his character, might bring
him belore the people as a tit man to lead
the w hoie nation through war to peace and
under the Constitution. For this ihey in
triiueJ, and lor this they have wbsied thou
sands ol young lives, poured out on fruitless
battlefields. xr,d some of this history rosy
be recovered fiom a close examitmiaiiou of
the di.-patche-and ordr issued at Wash
ington, between the ZiJth of August and ttie
2J eptemtpr, 1862. Five days brief time,'
but lined with great events. The politi
cians had succeeJed. M'Cieilan was de
based and disgraced. He su-ks Halleck for
specific order as to what he is to do at
Alexandria. Halleck replies, giving geueral
orders and fiudi..g fault. "Amuuition , and
particularly lor artillery, must be immedi
ately sent lorward to Centervilie for Gen.
Pope. It must be done with alt possible
di!patch," telegraphs Halleck, al 1 45
o'clock, on the 3Jth. M'Cieilau replies at
2 10. 1 1 know uolhin ol the calibre of
Pope's artillery . All 1 can do is to direct
my ordinance officer to load up all wagons
sent to him." Halleck finds fault that Geo.
Frank Im was not sooner sent forward
M Clellan replies that Franklin had no
transportation, and finally marched without
wagons, and of course without aojumiiou
rben Gentral M'Clellan sends a dispa ch,
which will be memorable in ail future
"I cannot expres to yoa the pain and
mortification I have experienced to day jn
istemng to ihe distant sound of the firing

No sleep that long night in the little camp
at Alexandria. Every moment they ex
pected the answer permitting them to share
the fate of the army a fate which the wis
est soldiers were looking io with the -most
solemn apprehensions. But no answer
came. Not even the common courtesy of
a reply was given, till the next day came
HJleck's dapatch :
'T cannot answer without seeing the
j President, as Geu. Pope is in command, by
his orders, of the department."
It was too much trouble for any one in
Geu. Halleck's office to send to the Piesi
dent the night before, or even that morn
ing, and say, "The fata of the nation hangs
in the baUuce ; M'Clellaii asks leave to go
io the field as a volunteer ; may he go
But the insults were not yet ended. This
same day, the 3Ut August, Halleck tele
graphs M'Clellan :
"As many as possible of the new regi
ments shouldgbe prepared to take the field.
Perhaps some more should be seut to the
vicinity of Chain Bridge.'
"M'Clellan replies that it is Gen. Casey's
province to attend to the new regimeuts,
and Gen. Barnard's to order others to Chain
Bridge. "By the War Department order 1
have no right to give them orders.'' Here
was one of those very common Washing
ton complications under the present man
agement. I have not seen the order," re
plies Halleck. It was the last iusolt of the
War DeDartment. that order, devised infhe
' same spirit which a few weeks later dicta-
ted the order seadid; the victor of South
Mountain and Antietam to report at Tren
ton. The order was decisive. ' General
M'Clellan commands that4 portion ol the
Army of the Potomac that has not been cent
forward to Gen. Pope's command.' How
they must have chuckled at the War De
partment over the keen wit of this order.
It was issued on the afternoon of August
30ih, and after the receipt irom McClellan
of his dispatch of 2.10 p. m., saying :
'I have no sharp-shooters except the
guard around my camp. I have now sent
off every man but those, and will now send
them with the train as you direct. I will
also send my only remaing squadron of
cavalry with -Gen. Sumner. I can do no
more. You now have evety man of the Army
of the Potomac who ii within my re ich."
Certainly it was a 6harp satire, very keen
and biting wit, which dictated, after that
last sentence, the words of the order :
Gen. M'Cle'.lan commands that portion of
the Army of the Potomac that has not been
snt forward !"
But the moruing of ihe 3lst bronght to
Washington some startling intelligence.
Halleck had been for four days buy re
ducing M'Clellan's position, finding fault,
that there was truth in Pope's dispatches,
ami that he was sweeping the rebel army
with the bosom of des. ruction. McClellan
was down, and a great victory was won by
Pope. Man who were in Washington that
night will remember the triumph of t!ie
radical faction. But the next day a change
came over the spirit ot the radical aream.
Halleck telegraphs M'Clellan that he had
not seen the order, and he evidently begins
to think that possibly they have been a lit
tle too fast in Washington. The new from
Pope is not rose eolored lo-day. M'Clellan
begins to loom up again in the minds of
"You will retain the command of evey
thing in this vicinity not temporally belouj-
ing to Pope's army in the field. I beg of
you to assist me in this crisis with your
ability and experience. I am entirely tired
So says Halleck at 10 p. rn., on the 30th.
Well he might be tired. The experiment
had failed The w hole plan of abandoning
the peninsular campaign and disgracing
M'Clellan was proving a di-astrons failure,
The "ability and experience" of M'Clellan
wa now w orth thinking of once more. Al
half past eieveo that night M'Clel an tele
graps Halleck that Pope is defeated, the
road filled wiih stragglers coming towards
Alexandra, that Pope's right is entirely
exposed, and he fears the gravest conse
quences. He adds : "To speak frankly
and the ucuiion requires it thkke apfkirs
io bk a total ABSENCE OF BRAINS, :
"I shall be up all night," says M'Clellan
from Alexandria. "I shall be up ail night."
says Halleck from Washington. It was a
fearful night. The morning brought truth
from Pope's army and wisdom to the heads
in Warhington. M'Clellan is sent for. All
day dit-astroua intelligence comes in.
M'Clellan is ordered to take command of
the delences of Washington, but his orders
are limited. They do cot yet dare to lace !
the indignation of lhe radical politicians,
who would have seen Washington destroy
ed rather than M Clellan restored. But the
morning of the 2d leaves '.hern in doubt no
longer. The hope of the nation hangs on

The Democratic party has been led for

Mr. John Hay is a fresh and fair youth of
some twenty or more summers, who writes
excellent verses arid has flourished for two
or three years in the executive mansion at
Washington as a pritae secretary of the
President. Hj was esteemed of the better
sex as a proper ladies' man, and might with
due change of garb have passed creditably
as a lady's maid. The ot:-.er day he was
made a major, and departed for the South
for what precise quarter was to the puhlic
unknown till a d3y or two ago, a steamer
from Hilton Head brought the heart-sickening
announcement that a thousand brave
men had lalle'i amid the swamps of Florida
in a fruitless attempt to make succe.-ful a
political expedition of which this young
man was the leader, and his master, Mr.
Lincoln, the inspiration. Gen. Gilmore
nominally led the expediuoti.but Hay had
full authority for its direction. Its object
was the occupation of Florida, with a view
to lhe reconstruction of that state, after the
fashion indicated in the President's proc
lamation of December last. Tho expelitioa
was confronted ty an unexpected and su
perior lorce of rebels, and was repubed so
signallythat our brave soldiers had, added
to lhe poignancy of their grief at defeat, the
bitter reflection lhat they were poorly led,

in the catalogue of objections to the present
auminisirauon, me ioi. owing :
First that the war has teen preverted
from its originally declared purpose, (namely,
the simple suppression of certain armed or
ganizations in the South, with a view to the
restoration of Irieudly and constitutional re

Sixth, and finally, That the policy novr
declared is fatal not merely to all ideas of a
legal re-union of lhe States, but foreshadows
future bankruptcy, constant agitation, the
establishment of a large standing army, and
in a lime by no means remote, a military
centralization such as to-day exists ia
