No substantial success s hare been ex
pected of the James Hirer expedition since
it was announced that General Butler was
in command. For whatever eUa may be

ous that hs -is " incompetent to direct the
-movements of a regiment, much less an ar
my.' His role js that of a tyrant, r ot of a
warrior. ' Tha accounts Sunt received from
hisrfnilitary operations are by no means
flattering ; in fact his column has met with
a decided reverse. General Beauregard,
"whom he ostentatiously announced as -cot
ofl from Richmond, has played General But
ler a scurvy trick. He brought his army
away from Petersburg by r route which it
seemed the Federal-commander knew noth
ing of, and dexterous in attack a he if skill

a proper moment n strike a damaging blow.
On Monday nsorning. under cover of a
jeavy fog, General Beauregard's forces etole
march on the Federals, some of his troops
passing quite to the rear of their enemy,
-when a general attack was made. The sur
prise was a partial, but not a compSeie sue-cess."-
On the riaht -General Heck-roan's
'brigade of General Smith's corps, opoo
wnom tne oiow nrsi reu, almost surrounded,
were driven back on another brigade in
confusion, and many of them, including
"General Heckman, were taken prisoners.
The Confederates arso gained other impor
tant advantages en this part of the line, but
'it U stated were not so successful in the as-
eauii on uenerai u in more s -corps, wmco
occupied the left. The result, in brief, was
mat uenerai xeauregara capturea more
-Ihan' a ' thousand prisoners, a half-dozon
' pieces of artillery and the abandonment by
the Federals of the formidable line of
'works which they had previously taken.
The Confederates, as osnal, it is said, at
lacktdin overwhelming numbers. We do
ot see thai the operations in this quarter
-give the slightest promise of success, not
' "withstanding the glowing accounts of the
correspondents of ibe Press, aod the fact
that General Butler commands in person.

'Begin Preelamation. .
A.fe'w days since there appeared in the
Journal of Commerce, and the- World, papers
published in the ciyof 'New York, what
turned out to be a bogo proclamation, pur
porting to have come from- Mr." Lincoln.
The docamenl set tut-wiih -etatementa that
with "a.heavy bean" the President called
for a day of fasting and prayer, in view of
certain "disaster" io the Union cause, an'd
therefore he calls fo: 400,000 men, to be
raised by volunteering, or, in the failure of
volunteering, by a. draft. -The paper was
dated and signed in the usual form, and
was calculated to deceive'a hasty reader.
The papers publishing the proclamation
pronour.ced it a lorgery as soon as found to
be such. The Secretary of War says it was
an ''absolute forgery," that "no, proclama
tion of the -kind r any other has been
made,. proposed to be made by the Presi
dent, or issued or proposed to be issued by
the Siate Department, or any Department
of this Government." Tha two papers
above mentioned have been suspended by
the Washington Despotism, and the tele
graph operators of the city have been plac
ed under arrest, for the purpose of sifting
out the guilty part ins. The whole matter
would seem U us like a plot,' laid for the
purpose of bringing these two papers into
lifficully with the Administration ; for what
other object iwe are unable to conceire.
It is true the Administration have had an
abundance of proclamations, making it al
together heedless to issue any bogus con
cerns ; besides Mr. Lincoln is notorious for
having proclamations revoked when Ihey
do not emanate from his train, as in the
case of the Fremont and Phillips proclama
tions setting all black" free in their respec
tive departments. So far as the Adminis
tration net calling for more troops we think
the least they say about that ma'ter the bet
ler ; for, should our armies, generally, con
tinue to meet with the reverses they have
of late suffered, Mr. Lincoln will be obliged
in le-s than two weeks to issue a proclama
tion calling Jot moie men I
'The Bed RiTer Blonder.
It is very evident, hewever, that we are
to have a Congressional investigation into
Ganeral Banks' imbecile military leaderhip
in Louisiana. The "bobbin boy" was great
on tho show business in New Orleans all
winter. Aided by his owlish wife, he had
roonsteT concerts, fancy dress balls, public
reviews, -and all sorts of highfalutin. Rut
when the militia General had to take the
field and to meet the enemy, he proved ut
terly inadequate te the tas-k. In vkin did
West Point officers counsel him. Ha lost

Mr. Editor. assume my pen once more
to commnnicate to you for 'publication a
few'thoughts on "Rebellion. The question
is, who is the author of Rebellion. I find,
in 1860, that the Abolition party and its
progeny were , the 'first, except ."Satao."- Io
i860 the Abolitionists and -Republicans did
not 'fill the ensign of stars only sixteen
were seen on their Banners.
, Hear what they say : "Better no Consti
tntion, no Union with the South, than .to
live in Union with .them 1" . They have
said the Constitution was "a covenant with
Death and an agreement with Hell." Sew
ard said "he hoped the time would come
when the'Constituiion would be changed,
the Union dissolved." II. P.Spalding said
"he did not care how roon it would come."
Sumner, Garrison, Banks, Rockwell, and
Wilson, said ''up with the flag of disuni
on." I mighi quote from a number of oth
ers, in subrtance the ssme, but let this rul
fice. I merely quote these to show that
the Abolitionists were the first to rebel, ex
-Now I shall proceed : 'first, then, Satan
rebelled against the Constitution, In which
he himself shared largely,' end which had
blessed him abundantly ; and this is a lead
ing feature of the preseiil Abolition govern
ment. Satan commenced his rebellion in
the best and noblest places in the universe,
and his design was evidently to overthrow
ttre Kingdom of Jehovah, and substitute Ru
in and Anarchy. The Abolition rebellion
commenced in the best end most blessed
country on the face of the -earth, 'having for
its object the overthrow of a good and strong
Constitution, and to substito'e in its stead
anarchy and despotism. Sat n endeavored
to inveigle others into hia rebellion, and
succeeded by lying representations, to al
lure men to take the fatal step on the ene
my's side, which has entailed untold mis
ery on the human race. The Abolition Re
bellion, through its leaderwMideavored to
involve and dragoon one Stale after another
into its vortex, by great promises of riches,
independence and power. Rain, devasta
tion and blood have been the lot of those
who listened to the tempter's voice. Satan
was a murderer from the beginning, and
the chief object which be accomplished by
bis rebellion, was. the murdering of thut
holy and hesrenly life which made spirits
and souls happy, and the scattering of
death broadcast over this land. The Abo
lition Rebellion was murderous from its be
ginning to this day, if you pleeso. Notice
its instituting a barbaric system of warfare,
which ia but an attempt to legalize murder
and robbery, and to carry it on systematical
ly and at wholesale, without any regard to
the ameliorating rules of civilized warfare.
Note the blood-suckers and blood-hounds
of unoffending Union men. and women in
this damnable crisis, and th9 hanging and
shooting of a large number of our soldiers,
for their fidelity to the Constitution." Just
as the Devil persecuted and killed bb many
faithful adherents to Emanuel's Mag. Wit
r.ess the murdering of many of our soldiers
after a surrender, and even the mutilahon of
their deatl bedies ; and last of all, though
not least, the deliberately murderous and
shocking inhumanity of starving our sol
diers, and the bad treatment. Well, sir, by
carefully looking over the history of Satan,
I fii.d his rebellion has become the avow
ed enemy of all good, and the continual
warfare waged against the liberties and
privileges of good beings. Satan endeav
ors to establibh despotism and thraldom,
and tyrannize over all that lies in his pow
er. And so it is with the Abolitionists, they
have avowed their hatred to tibertv and
adopted their chief habeas corpus as tha cor
ner stone for them to work with in like
manner as did Satan they have suppressed
effectively both liberty of speech and the
press, and svidently are aiming to establish
an Ebsolnte tyranny, by which a few rule
and many obey. Satan has several limes
been defeated by the institutions and ar
mies vof Emanuel ; but has hitherto rallied
his forces every time, and tried some new
strategy. The Abolition Rebellion has had
its back bone almost broken several times,
yet it has always rallied and devised some
new plan, that it may recover from the
staggered blow, and take another stand.
Satan's rebellion is characterized by per
fect madness, though he knows that he ul
timately must scccomb, he madly con
tinues his warfre, and when he cannot
conquer he torments. The .Abolition Re
bellion cannot succeed, yet as it maddens
its leaders and abetters, and knowing that
they cannot succeed, they inflict as much
harm as they can upon their own people
and others. Satan will be utterly overthrown
and banished to hell, and by the grace of
God, this Abolition Rebellion will be wiped
out and then its leaders will get their just
dues, or a, least be banished from America,
and we shall probably never have another
rebellion in our land again. Sir, this rebel
lion, then, is nothing else but a piece of the
grand scheme of Satan to overthrow that
constitution which is of God's order, andj
with it religions liberty and the Kingdom of
Christ in this land. This Abolition war .is
the work of the great Red Dragon, and this
(act alone can fully account for its unwar
ranted and horrable character. Tha world
of spirits is more deeply engaged than most
men are aware of. I do think the right
hand of the Lobo will do jostlce to thosa
Abolition infidels. Now, Christians, be
ware not to aid this Abolition Rebe llion ;
either by word, deed, or vote, and not ad
here to our Preachers ot the Gospel who
uphold such a deadly mcrder ; let each one
labor and pray for its speedy overthrow and
the establishment of freedom, peace and
Union,' onca more in our beloved country.
By carefully looking over the history of
Satan, I find that he has changed his name
thirty-two different times. So with the
Abolitionists since the daya of Whig and
Tory. The Tory Abolitionists have chang
ed their name thirty-two times in like man
ner as did Satan. Patriot Bot.

prom Saturday's papers. ; . .
'Up to the hour of closing this summary
we have received no nevrs 'of'any move
ments of the Army of the 'Potomao yester
day. A despatch from Grant at hall past
eiyiht o'clock in themoming, indicates- that
nothing had occurred at that hour. Un
Tuesday Grant's advance on the enemy's
western'flar.k was repulsed an attempt by
'Ewell to outflank him, on that side. His
loss was seven hundred and fifty, and three
hundred Confederate prisoners were cap

he moved yesterday, to a'le'mpt to turn
Lee's eastern flank. With this object be
captured Guiney's Station, on the railroad,

boats have gone up the Rappahannock to
Fredericksburg, and as the guerrillas have

Nothing has been heard from Gen Butler.
His losses in last Monday's battle are esti

Gen. Sherman is reported to have occu

south of Daltoi, Georgia. Johnston still re
treats before Sherman, and has not yet
shown any signs of resistance. His retreat
is in good order, no stragglers or wagons
being left behind.
Gen. Averill has cut the Lynchburg ecd
KnoxviHe railroad in Virir.ia, near the
southwestern corner of the- State. He has
a'eo destroyed some tall works. He had a
contest villi the enemy in which be cap

Confederates have place ) a battery of nine
guns on th.e Arkansas shore and lor nearly
a week there has. been a complete block

the enemy are concentrating for au attack
upon Port Hudson.
Nothing is beard from Geq. Binks. He

"trOsi Monday's papers.
General Grant, it appears, has again with
drawn his line. On Tuesday evening his
array presented a southwestern front along
the Ny, the western Hank being tour mile
north " of Spottsylvania and the eastern
flank, four mile east of Spottsylvania. 'On
Thursday he presented an entirely different
front. The ,Ny was abandoned. The west
ern flank was withdrawn about five milesto
wsrds Fredericksburg ar.d the eastern flank
one mile, so that the line presented a wes
tern front towaTdr the enemy, the north
flank resting on the Ma6saponax riv-r,aboul
seven miles south west ot Fredericksburg.
This line was very near the railroad to
Richmond, and Guiney's Station was occu
pied, it being but a short distance in the
rear of the southern flank. Gen. Grant thus
retired during Wednesday a distance of five
miles on one flank, and one mile on the
other. He is now seven miles from Spott
sylvania. The reason ol his withdrawal is
Availing themselves of this position of
his troops, tha Confederate on ThursJay
sent a flanking paity around his north flank
and captured the turnpike road leading from
Spottsylvania to Fredericksburg.over which
the Federal supplies had been carried. A
large Federal force was at once sent in that
direction, and the patty was driven off with
a los of some priooners. Grant's loss dur
ing the day is estimated at one thousand.
On Friday the Confederates are reported to
have sent large bodies of troops toward the
railroad, as if ihey leared a movement by
Grsnt in that direction. The lestes of Gen
eral Wright's 5th coTps since the batt'es be
gan aie reported thus : Killed 1,240 ; woun

There are fourcorps in the army.
General Butler on Tuesday ladt was en
camped on the narrow neck of land at Bar-,
muda Hundre l, near the mouth ot the Ap
pomattox. The enemy having reconstruc
ted the railroad between Petersburg and
Richmond, on Wednesday night last a force
was sent out by Butler to Cut it, but the en
emy were found in great strength and the
force returned without reaching the rail
road. The next day the enemy made their
appearance close to Batlcr's line and the
greatest exertions were made by him to
complete his earthworks and prepare for
defense. On Friday the enemy atiacked
him, and at 8 oxlcck in ths evening fie tel
egraphed to Stanton that "he had been
fighting all day, the enemy endeavoring to
