Jba swindler and forger, who brought
'embarrassment and fear upon the Govern-
menl. fraud acd impostare upon twe laad
; ing Naw York dalies, has been identified
and clearly shorn up to be Joseph Howard,
-Jr. Thia impostor bails from Brooklyn,
-where he grew op, whose social almoa- '
phere ha has breathed from infancy, and
' where he may be safely presumed to have
'Ctnbt the insplration-of his riper genios.
lie was until lately a member of the widely
'known Plymouth Church, ol Brooklyn, over
which the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher min
isters as pastor, and whose theology and
politics are handed -over the eacrsd desk in
-each admirable harmony This distinguish
d hero was among the special peta and
favorites of Mr. Besctier, tbe fanatia and
-abolitionist ; and by logical necessity, grow
ing eat of hi auspicious ecclesiastical train
ring, he waa a prominent Republican. He
was conspicuous in organizing the first Fre
mont Clab of that city, and waa made its
rfirst President. .Bat a few months ago he
was elected a member of the 'Kings county
Republican Committee, and at this honr ha
is regarded aa a ' member of this party in
4good standing. In all party movements he
'has aver avowed himself an unconditional
Rkfcblican, and even daring his late con
nection with the .Brooklyn Eagle, he never
pretended to be atbeT lhaQ a Republican,
or in ether words an Abolitionist. .
-Th first that we hear ef Howard in con
Election with the press, waa iu 1852, whan
, ie claimed a brief" relatiohshfrp4 with the
zWeia YorkLcdgerj and n the arrival of the
'"Princeof Wale into Ibis commy, ha loom
t ap-as a traveling correspondent of the
JSexa Yok Times, and' attended the Prince
ort his' journeying through Canada, and
fter crossing :ttve lines into the United
Stales, following' him' from point to point
throughout the Great Republic, writing np
4he eon, of . Qaedn Victoria in piqaaut, go
ipy, sensational letters lo tbe New Yotk
1 Daily Times Next we find him officiating
a ccrtespondaut and reporter for Greeley'
Tr&wne, a capacity be filled for a ehan time.
When Air. Lincoln started from Spring
. field, Illinois, ' Howard f the Times" was
.dispatched West to attend tbe Presidential
wayfarer, to- cote the incidents of the pas
sage retail th gossip, and flavor tbe cor
respondence with all the indispensable sea
aoning. It was his fertile brain that coo
oc:ed the romance aboct the Scotch cap
. and Military cloak, on the President's flight
through Baltimore to Washington. ; On thi.
V jonraey Howard is said to have made bim
" aeif apecially intimate with the President in
- prospect of aa office for which his irrepres-
V aible conceit. peeially. qualified him. And
', cn the.trength of hta intimacy ia aaid
. to have been kindly received since at tbe
" While Hoose and has made his personal
acquaintance with tbe President a matter
of familiar boasting. He was arrested by
Gen. Dix'a forces, after considerable diligent
search and inqairy was made for the guilty
person, some three or four days after the
Irnbdalent document made its appearance
before the public, .He haa since made a
full confession of the affair, claiming to
fcave originated it for stock jobbing porpo
J.,ea, thinking to launch an astonishing 'en-
sation'on the public, and at the same time
replenish bj empty pockets. For: Lafay
ette his been made the recipient of this
distingniahed swindler and impostor, who

priest in Father Abraham's synagogue

- labored manner, endaaver to fasten the guili
x Bpon the Democratic party, when at. the
same time, the editor knew it be knew any
thing, that Joseph , Howard, jr., one ef his
. awn pel,, was, akne,the guihy persoa who
devised and perpetrated tbe fraud opon the
Administration. This he may call fair and
. impartial journalism, but wesbauld consid

Itis stated in a telegram from Cinc'mnati
that Ex-Governor Medary was arrested by
ihef Uni'ed Slates Marshal, on account ot
hia being engaged iu a conspiracy to over
threw the Government. If such ' be the
fact, no one will complain of his arrest and
punishment. -But it will require more thaa
the bald statement of-a telegraphic operator
to make those who know Samuel Medary
believe anything of the kind. The whole
record of his liie is against any such con
elusion. He is a bold, frafck, and manly
opponent no secret,- midnight coaspirator.
He has been outspoken in his antagonism to
the present corrupt dynasty at Washington.
In the columns of the Crisis one of the
ablest: journals published in the country
he has dealt -many and heavy blowa upon
tbe heada of Lincoln, Seward and Stanton,
and thereby he may have given great of
fence at "headquarters." Ilia opponents
have alwaya known exactly where to And
him. He never struck in the dark, but al
waya fought his battles in the open sunt
hine. Conspirators are not made of each
stuff ; ami when the histor of this new
persecution reaches the light, we predict
that, in his case, it will seen that insult
haa been added to jujary, and a shallow
pretext has been given aa lhej causa ef his
arrest and imprisoiimect. '
' Tuk Republican Iat Week contained its usu
al amount of boast and bombast in relationto
its success, which the editot would vainly
make bia -readers believe waa far beyond
expectation. He thinks had they the De
mocracyhad decent. papers journals con
ducted with spirit and a respectable amount
of ability," his enterprise might have been
more hazardous one! Well, bear the
vain glorious fool expatiate ; endeavoring
tq, make an impression upon the public that
Aepublieb.ee a "respectable" sheet ; when
there is scarcely an issue of ihat paper ap
pear but what the major portion of it is
made np of falsehoods, ttisrepreseutaiions,
and lying telegraph dispatches. As a. news
ournal it is not nor never has been relia
ble ; -and in .politics it is nowhere, not even
recognized bj its own party journals. Yet
it would, with a great deal cf flourish, ea
say to have the public believe it swayed a
tremmdaui influence both at home and
abroad. Well, it boasts of its "onward and
upward course," in this county, for "nearly
eight years," now let us see lo what extent
its influence has operated : In 1858, the
second year this normal editor did up the
polillcal matter for his party in this county,
the official Democratic majority was, on
the Stale ticket, but 444 ; in 1659 it was
727; and so on, kept increasing, -until it
eached, in the elections of 1862 and 1863,
1570 i So much for the Republic! n'j influ
ence politically in Columbia county. . And
aa to the influence be would have upon the
morals o! the public, we hare only to watch
his own course to -know in what, direclien
tbe j would take. He;s a bright specimen
of humanity to talk about having "some
respect for the intelligence" of Ibe people,
ind moulding the public sentiment of the
county," when he has moulded for himself,
and woutd like to have moulded for others,
a character, not easily bleached out in thi
county, that is looked upon by all religious
and upright people with scorn and con
tempt. Yet he deatrea hia inflaence shall
continue in the direction it has started out !
The men in this county who were so fu
rious last Fall in Gov,;CtJBHii'a election,
"to avoid the draft," can now have an op
portunity of forrnicg themselves into mili
tary companies, subject to his call, at any
time the Government may need their servi
ces. The cry was,, in Abelition circles,
"vote for Akdt and avoid the draft !" This.
some of tbe mare wicked ones, may at
tempt to deny j but the evidence is too con
vincing, and that rn some of their most iy-
ot prints if need be produced. But how d;d
it turn out ; why scarcely were the votes
counted, and the Governor not re-inaugurated,
before a draft, waa. made ; and since
then, two more additional calls nave been
issued, and a d rait pending to fill up the de
ficiency in those calls. This does not look
mnch like making their pledge good, when
they told yon to cast your suffrages for A.
G. Ccbtin, the' soldier's friend, aad "avoid
the draft:" The Democratic party were not
willing to say" o much to the voters of
Pennsylvania ; they preferred leaving a
clear record, one that would always bear
the closest inspection. Wuh their 'candi
date, Ggorcc W. Woodward, they were
prepared to meet the enemy in a fair cam
paign, without making any false promises,
and with a fair and free election, the Dem
ocratic party to day v?oold have the Gover
nor. Ma. Woodward Aad, leyond any cavil,
a majority of the legal votes of Pennnhnnia 1
Now, aawe aaid before, let thosa who
were so anxious for Ccbtin's election form

spond to his call for ''more men." You
wilite ''clothed, armed, subsisted and paid
by the United States !" Patience is not re

' It will be seen by our report of Congres
sional proceedings- that on yesterday the
House of Representatives received Mr. Lin
coln's message in answer to the resolution
offeted by Mr. Davis of Maryland, asking
the President to communicate to the House
"any explanation given by the Government
of the United States lo France relative to
the bearing and sense of the resolution re
lative to Mexico, which unanimously pats
ed the House on the fourth ot April, 1864 "
The message gives the correspondence be
tween Mr. Seward and Mr. Dayton, our
Minister in France, upoa the subject. A
very significant .feature of this correspon
dence is the fact stated,' that upon Mr. Day
ton's first interview with M. Drouyn de
L'Huys, after the latter'a knowledge of the
House resolution of the fourth ultimo, the
French Mininef accosted Mr. Dayton thus :
"Do you bring as peace, or bring us war?"
Mr. Dayton asked to what the interrogatory
referred, aiid M. Dreuyn de L'Huys an
swered that he referred to the resolution of
the House of Representatives upen 'the
Mexican question. We know, therefore
that should the said resolution of tire House
of Representatives be indorsed by this Gov
ernmefit, the consequence wili be a , war
between the United "States ar.d -France.
The French Minister has been more frank
ar.d bold thau Mr. Seward, and without any
circumlocution or evasioa, has fairly stated
the alternative. Peace or war 1 he asked,
aa the-preluda to the interview, and -gave
us distinctly to understand that the inevi
table result of this government's acquies
cence in the House resolutions would be
war. 'Did Mr. Dayton accept the gage of
battle in the name of the American people?
No ; and M. D'ouyn de;L'fluya knew that
he would not when he made the threat. . .
Under instructions from the Administra
tion, the representative of our Republic aad
the guardian of Us honor in France, grov
eled at the foot of the imperial throne, and
ate the words of protest and defiance that
the American people had spoken through
their representatives in Congress. And
what explanation does Mr. Lincoln give to
the House lor this humiliating attitude of
the American .people ? Thai the Mexican
question "is practically executive, and that
it does not belong to Congress to take ac
tion in the premise?. But if the executive
action in the premises be such as to ' bring
dishonor upon our country and to jeopar
dize its vital iulereits, we think that then it
belongs to Congress to 'redeem our honor
and to protect our interests. , :- . , .
, Mr. Lincoln has far ioo vast, an estimate
of the extent of hia executive-functions.
He may live to learn that to Congress be
longs the power of impeachment, ,.and we
trust the time is not distant when he 6hail
be called to account, among other crimes,
lor this cowardly sacrifice of our . national
honor at the footstool .of a foreign despot.
One of the most humiliating features in
this correspondence is the constat l allusion
on the part ol Mr. Seward 13 tha lact that
Mr. Corwin, our. Minister Plenipotentiary
to Mexico, bad been called upon to shirk
the responsibility due to his office,by sneak
ing away from his post under lei7e of ab
sence, at the very hour when our country 'a
honor demanded hia presence and only the
most palpable diplomatic juggling could se
cure bis absence. New York Daily Xeice.

paibrs. Governor Seymour's instructions
to tbe District Attorney with regard to the
recent seizare of the offices of two morn
ing journals of New York city are contain
ed in a letter recently published. It mijht
have been more brief and equally effective.
This is of litila consequence, If the princi
ples announced are strictly followed up, as
they should be, if the highest power in the
State would not appear ridiculous, and cit
zens hereafter are to have an adequate as
snrranre of protection in their palpable and
indisputable rights." Such documents do
more harm than good, if they ate allowed
to mean nothing. The question, as we oa
derland Gov. Seymour, ia to be fettled,and
settled cow, as to the legalit) of tbe seizure
of the two offices of the journals in ques
tion, and tbe Governor has called opon the
Sheriff and the police to follow up at all
hazards the action of the District Attorney
against persona guilty cf the offunce. No
doubt jhere 1 will be a busy time. When
the decision ia made, after due inquiry,
should the military gentlemen bs'found of
fender,' there will be nothing "less" than
their arrest and arraignment under the char
ges made against them. Governor Seymour
probably means to grapple with this matter
with all the strength given to him by his
position as the bead of the Slate.

LATE WAR NEWS. '
General '?ran! has abandoned his plan or
attacking Richmond from the north. He
has pone towards the White ' House, and
will bezin his lahors anew from the eM.
He has adopted McClellan's plan 'ot 862,
and will operate upon the same ground. Gen
Butler, it is reported, will be; removed from
: comrrland, as he has failed to accomplish j
) his 6hare in the ODeratinna. I
On Wednesday last the Federal army lay
along tbe Sooth Anna. Part was oi the
south bank, and part on .the north bank.
The river ran between th9 two ponions.
The enemy, strongly entrenched, opposed
any farther progress, though their nnmbers,
owing to the woods and hills which con
cealed them, coutd not be abcertained.
On Tuesday the Federal line had extend
ed as far east as the railroad bridge, but in
order to concentrate the forces, the flank
had been drawn in westward and the guard
upon the bridge given Bp. The Confed
erates at once set fire to it, and' during
Tueiday night burned it to ashes.
On Wednesday the Federat headquarters
were removed Irom Mount Carme! Church
to Jericho Ali lis. Fredericksburg bad been
abandoned as a supply post, and Port Royal,
on the Lower Rappahannock, was made
the new one. Wounded were sent there
and supplies received, . Preparations were
made to pass the entire army over the
North Anna. Burnside's advance crossed .
The enemy threatened an attack upon the
Isolated wingf. Affairs appeared critical,
when on Wednesday evening a heavy rain
began an a series of thunder st6rias con
tinued all night.
The tai s swelled the North Anna. The
fords were oblitterated. The two wing on
the southern bank were threatened with
isolation from the reserves on the northern
bank. The movements of the enemy were
ominous. In order to prevent an attack
upon either of the wings on the southern
batik it became necessary to recross the
stream, and by Ihursday night all the Fed
erat troops were withdrawn lo the north
bank of the North Anna.
When Grant found that the North Anna
route mo it be abandoned, he determined to
follow the oi.ly otter - feasible road. This
waa the one irom White House on the Pa-
munkey. Ha resolved to Uaasport hii fenny
iu 1 1 U u i 3 l u 1 1 n I j el a pirn l uio j biju 14 uiuut
to get across tho river, which was too wide
iur cimi y jomtjiii paaBttga m uuo nuurc,
be chose a point some distance above
where there was a lerry. On Thursday
afterooon he sent SheTidan's cavalry to sieze
this poiut, and with Sheridan's march -be-fan
the transportation of the army to White
Hoose. This change of operations to tbe
severely criticised M'CIellan route, will in
voke one comment Irom every mouth.
Grant, after the roost sanguinary fighting
aud severe looses, has but arrived at tbe
point which M'CIellan reached by a road
From Jericho Mills, the North Anna rnns
a south easi course to White House. Be
low tiie junction with the South Anna it is
called the Pamunkey. A. .road along the
south side ol the river, about four mile
Uom it, connects the two places Tae Freil
etickfburg Railroad crosses both Ibe road
ahd river five mile Irom Jericho Mills. Tea
miles below the railroad brid-je ar.d aWoi.t a
mile 'irom the south bank ol the liver ia
Hanover Court Houee, eight miles below
Ilanoter Court House and also on the t-oulh
bank is Hanover Town. Twelve miles
from Hanover Town a:i also on the south
bank is W hite Home. Ou the road fifteen
mile Irom Chesterfield, stands Mongohick
Church. It is about fix miles northeast of
Hanover Court House, the river running
cavalry were ' sen t
along this road en Tbursdar afternoon.
They paired Chester'field and Mongohick
Church, and ori Friday morning approached
tbe river bank oppoait Hanover Town.
Here they took poKeiaa of a ferry, cap
turing the Conlederale guard about eighty
men, and made preparations tor crossing
thtf Federal army over tc ihe south bank.
Headqaaners were moved from Jericho
Mills to Chesterfield, and then to Mongo
hick Church. At five o'clock on Friday
afternoon the army was encamped arou.nl
the church, and a soon as it was dark the
crowing began at Hanover Town, which is
