CLEARFIELD, PA., APRIL 23, 1862.
T&T7E TO THEIK MASTEBS.
' In speaking of tbe bill for the emancipation
of slaves in the District of Columbia, the
Clearfield Republican of April 16th says :
"Should it become a law it will then lie fair
notice to all slavebolding States that Wash
iogton cannot be the capitol of their country ;
for surely no one would expect the rcpresen
tatirea of alaveboiding constituents to come
to the seat of their government, to attend to
tbelr national affairs deprived of those privil
eges and rights which they hold sacred at
homo. Tbe only condition upon which they
could do so would be tho liberation of tbe
alavea in the States which they assume to rep
resent. What a mockery upon Republican
These Breckinridge editors are truly a
tr&nge'sot of fellows ! Congress may legis
late s much as it pleases for slavery and
slaveholders, and it meets their full approba
tion i but should the National Legislature do
ever so little against tho slave power, and im
mediately they shout: "What a mockery upon
' Republican Government !" Washington City,
these immaculate editors tell the slaveholders,
"cannot be the capitol of their country 1" Not
at U I That wouldn't do ! Tbe clank of tbe
slaves chains, and tbe sound of the auction
eer's hammer, are absolutely essontlal to make
it tolerable to these bigh-brod gentlemen (7)
of the South, who regard every laboring man
at the North, ai a "mnd-sill of society."
But, if, as the editors of tho Republican say,
do one would ezpoct tiio representatives of
alavehelding constituents to come to tbe seat
of their government," forsooth, because it is
located on -free soil, would they any less "ex
pect" tbe representatives of a constituency
which hold no negroes in bondago, "to come
to tbe scat of their government, to attond to
their national affairs," it the capital is to be
- forever devoted to the Moloch of Slavery 7
When it is considered that the Clearfield
Republican has contended, time and again,
that slavery is of Divine origin, it is not sur
prising that they should be so greatly horrified
at the passage of tbe Bill for the Emancipation
of Slavery in the District of Columbia. We
cannot help thinking, however, that Jobn
Randolph, of Roanoke, had just such men in
view, when, in one of bis electrifying speeches
, In Congress be exclaimed i
-"Sir, I envy neither the heart nor the bead
of that man from the North, who rises here to
defond Slavery on principle !"
A FBEE CAPITAL.
Tbe bill for the abolition of blavery in the
District of Columbia, which passod both
Houses of Congress, has received the signa
ture of President Lincoln and is now the law
of tbe land. Thus onr nation has been res
cued from the disgrace of tolerating within
the precints of its Capital all the iniquities of
negro slavery, and the legislation of the great
est free Government that ever rxisted will
- hereafter be conducted on free soil. The ap
prehension that tho slaves who aro released
from bondage in Washington will flock to the
Northern States is not well founded. .At first
they might, perhaps, rush northward, but in a
Tery short time they, together with the free
' blacks in our midst, would seek tho South,
because tho natural attraction of races would
draw them to localities where their own spe
cles are numerous, and because the negro In
stinctively, like water seeking its level, runs
towards tbe tropics. Besides this, the rapid
increase of tho white population in and about
Washington creatoi a greater demand for
their labor than exists In the North, and after
their freedom is secured in tbe vicinity of
their old homes, there will be no motive for
A Rarb Cane. lion. Edward McPhcrson
presented President Lincoln with a rare cane
on April 9th. It was manufactured by Jobn
Hanks, of Scranten, Pa., out of a cedar stick.
It Is very curiously carved, the top Into an
American eagle. Upon its throat la the na
tional shield with the words "Union Forever I"
inscribed thereon. The eagle grasps Jeff
Davis by the seat of the breeches. Below him
on one side is a cannon; on the other a lion
in fall spring with a rattlesnake near by.
An ErisoDE. It is related that one day last
week, General Porter went up in a balloon
early in the morning to make a reconnoissance
of tbe rebel lines at Yorktown, and when about
one hundred feet above the ground, tbe rope
anchoring the balloon broke, and tbe General
sailed off south-westerly towards Richmond
lie was alone, but had sufficient calmness to
pull tbe valve rope, and gradually descended,
reaching tbe ground in safety, about three
miles from tbe camp.
Tas Altemativi. Parson Brownlow, f n
bis Cincinnati speech, said be was a slave
bolder ; but be bad no hesitation In saying
that "wbea the question comet as it will, the
'Union an,d. DP slavery' and slavery and no
Union,' I am for the Union and let slavery go
to the 4ogs, or where else it may be sent."
What a rebnke to the snivelling flunkies in the
North who cry "hands ST" whenever it is
proposed to- tread upon tbo corn of tbe "pe
culiar institution !"

INTERESTING WAR NEWS.
Further from Fittsbarg Landing.
Front Gen. Sherman's report we learn that,
on Tcesday morning after the battle at Pitts
burg landing, he advanced some miles on the
I road towards Corinth ; and on coming up with
the rear of the retreating rebels had a brisk
fight with their cavalry, driving them from
their position. Gen. Grant in bis report sets
down our loss 1,600 killed, 3,500 wouoded,
and the missing are estimated at about 4,0OC.
Our troops captured about 1,000 nnwounded
rebels, and 1,200 wounded. Over 2,200 dead
rebels have been buried by onr troops, and
others still remaining on the ground. A
correspondent says that our troops re-took,
on Monday, all tbe batteries lost on Sunday,
and captured 12 pieces from tbe enemy. So
confident were the rebels in their ability to
bold our camps which they took on Sunday,
tbat witb a single exception, they did not de
stroy tbera. On Tuesday Beauregard sent a
flag of truce, requesting permission to bury
his dead, and saying, "owing to the heavy
reinforcements yen received on Sunday night
and Monday, and the fatiguo of my men, I
deemed it prudent to retire and not renew the
battle." Tbo permission was not granted.
The bearer of the flag of truce admitted tbat
Beauregard received a 'slight wound in tbo
April 14. A force of four thousand troops
in five transports left the landing on Saturday
night accompanied by the gun boats Tyler and
Lexington, and proceeded up the Tennessee
river to a point near Eastport, Mississippi,
where tbey landed and proceeded inland to
Bear creek bridge. Here they destroyed the
two bridges on the Mobile and Ohio railroad,
one measuring one hundred and twenty-one
feet and the other two hundred and ten feet in
length. A rebel cavalry force of 150 men
were found there, who, after having 4 killed,
skedaddled in the most -approved southern
style. The expedition returned on Sunday
night, without having lost a man. This was
one of tho most snccesstul of its kind during
the war, completely cutting off the communi
cation of the main rebel army nt Corinth with
Alabama and the rest of the confederacy, ex
cept New Orleans.
Bailroad taken by Gen. Mitchell.
.Washington, April 14. The following dis
patch has ben received by the Secretary of
War, dated Nashvllte, Tenn., April 14 : "On
Saturday morning two expeditions were start
ed from Iluntsville in the cars. One, under
Col. Sill, of tbe Thirty-third Ohio, went oast
to Stevenson, the junction of tbe Chattanooga
with tho Memphis and Charleston Railroad,
which point tbey aeiied, two thousand of the
enemy retreating without firing a shot. Col.
Sill captured five locomotives and a largo a
mountof rolling stock. Tho other expedition,
under Colonel Tuchiu, of the Nineteenth Illi
nois, went west, and arrived at Decatur in time
to save the railroad bridge,whicb was in flames.
General Mitchell now holds one hundred miles
of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad.
Winchester, Va., April 16. Yesterday a
Urge boat containing a number of officers and
privates of the 75lh Pennsylvania regiment,
was swamped at Castleman's Ferry, on the
Shenandoah, and between forty and titty men,
and several of the officers were drowned. A
mong the officers lost were Adjutant Teatman,
Copt. A. Wilson, 3rd brigade Commissary, and
Capt. Ward. I wilt endeavor to obtain a full
list of the names of these drowned on tbo ar
rival or (he regiment at Winchester. The

Battle at Apaehe Pass.
Washington, April, 16 Secretary Stanton
received early this morning tbo following de
spatch, dated Kansas city, April 14. The
Fcrt Union mail brings confirmation of the
battle of Apache Pass, New Mexico. Our loss
is 150 killed, wounded and missing. Tbe
enemy acknowledge their loss to bo from
threo to four hundred killed and wounded.
Ninety-three rebels were taken prisoners,
thirteen of whom were officers. Our forces
captured and burned sixty-fonr wagons laden
with provisions and ammunition, killing 200
mules. The Texans attacked our battery four
times, the last time coming within forty feet
of onr guns, but tbey were repulsed with heavy
loss. Col. Slough is encamped at Bemal
Springs, forty miles from Fort Union. The
Texans fell back to Santa Fe. Col, Canby,
with 1,000 regulars and Kit Carson's regiment,
are reported to be within three days' march of
Col. Slocura. Col. Slate is reported to be on
the Jormda with reinforcements for the enemy.
From the Rappahannock.
Washington, April 17. Intelligence was
received to-day from tho Potomac flotilla,
which on the 14th Inst., visited tbe town of
Urbana, on the Rappahannock. A boats' crew
was sent ashore, and when within a few yards
of the beach they were fired upon from rifle
pits. No one was injured, but the boat re
ceived several bullets in ber hull. The Jacob
Bell being the nearest to It immediately open
ed Are upon the rebels, which scattered them
in every direction. After this the flotilla pro
ceeded on its voyage towards Fredericksburg.
Arriving opposite Lowry'a batreries, they
commenced from the whole fleet to shell the
works and fortifications, driving out the pick
ets who have occupied it sinco tbe evacuation
twelve days ago by a large body of the rebel
army. After the shelling tbe boat's crew
landed and proceeded to burn some one hun
dred and fifty plank and log houses used by
the rebels as quarters, after which the boats
returned to their ships loaded with blankets,
quilts, medicines and muskets, left by the
rebels in their flight. Tbe fleet thence pro
ceded to tbe town of Rappahannock, about
two miles above Fort Lowcry, arrlviog off
which a blank cartridge was fired and flags of
truce hoisted, which was responded to by tbe
people of tbe town by displaying a number of
white flags. Our commander with his gig's
crew landed, when they were met at the beach
by a large concourse of persons of all colors,
and it seemed with great demonstrations by
the dark population, one old woman exclaim
ing, "Bress God, de Yankees have come at
last." The American flag was run up over
one of the largest bouses in tbe town, when it
was I. ailed with enthusiastic cheering by the
crews of our gunboats. Subsequently onr
commander was informed that two of the peo
ple of the place bad said as soon sa we left the
flag would be torn down. Our commander then
politely told them if It waa he would give them
six boors to leave tbe town before be burned
it. Information was given by contrahendi!
that four large schooners and other obstruc
tions are placed in the narrow channel of the
river five miles this side of Fredericksburg to
prevent our approach to tbat place, where also
lie the steamer St. Nicbolas.Eureka and Losar.
the former mounted with two guns. As far as
could be learned, there are no rebel soldiers
on tbe neck of land lying between tbe Poto
mac and the Rappahannock, excepting a few
jrebal jlcketi of cvh'.tj, ciost'.y copossl' o
Mary landers to prevent the escape of negroes.
On the loth tbe fleet lay off Rappahannock,
about fifty miles below Fredericksburg. Our
fleet captured tbe sloop Reindeer, loaded with
oysters, shad, cedar posts and carpet bags,
containing a quantity of clothes for the rebels,
with many letters from which it was ascertain
ed tbat tho rebels are evacuating Fredericks
burg and talk of burning the town to keep it
from falling into our bands. The fleet pro
ceeded down the river to Corbin's creek, and
there cut out two very fine schooners, one of
them being the Sidney A. Jones of Baltimore.
Jnst below the creek, two secession soldiers
were captured, and contraband goods were
found there and appropriated, but the liquor
was all destroyed.
From York Eiver.
Fortress Monrok, April 17. Tbe rebels
have been for several days building large for
tifications of the Gloucester side of the York
river, about two miles from Yorktown, within
sight of our gunboats, but their guns were of
too long a range to allow the approach of the
boats to shell thetworks. About one thousand
men were at work on the fortifications and the
mortars were not of sufficient rango tocheck
the operations. Yesterday morning, however,
tho gunboat Salayo arrived, having a heavy
100-pound rifled Parrot gun, and at once open
ed upon them with shell, which were so well
aimed that they could be seen falling in their
midst and exploding with fatal effect. Tbe
rebels could be distinctly seen carrying off
their killed and wounded, and in the course of
two hours the work was entirely suspended,
the men retiring out of range. At every at
tempt to renew the work, they were driven
back. Up to nightfall, the guns mounted by
tho enemy on tbe Yorktown side of the river
numbered not less than fifty 100-pounders,
some of which are rifled, bearing directly on
tbe bar. Our gunboats are at present about
two miles below the town. There is said to be
skirmishing along the whole line before York
town, and tbe Berdan sharpshooters are spread
ing terror among the gunners of the enemy by
their unerring aim. The enemy have made
several sorties with infantry in tho endeavor
to capture or dislodge the riflemen, but have
been driven back with heavy loss. As to the
arrangement of the final siege we need only
say that the work goes bravely on. There
was some filing this morning by the rebel bat
teries to the left of Yorktown, but no damage
From Gen. Bank's Column.
Mount Jackson, Va., April 17. Onr troops
occupied Mount Jackson at seven o'clock this
morning, and are now in front of Reede's Hill,
where tho enemy appeared to be in force.
The people tcport that tbe rebels intend to j
make battle there. They resisted our advance
in order to gain tima for the burning of the
bridges and railway cars, engines, &c, that
had been accumulated at the terminus of the
road, but our movement was so Midden and
the retreat of the rebels so precipitate that wo
were enabled to save the bridges, two locomo
tives, and some cars. AH these had been
prepared with combustible material for an in-.
slant conflagration. Many prisoners have
been taken, and several fine horses captured
from tbo enemy. The troops have acted ad
mirably. They were in motion at one o'clock
this morning. Col. Carroll's brigado of Gen.
Shield's division led the advance on the back
road to the rear of Mount Jackson, and
Gen. Kimball on tho turnpike. Gen. Wil
liams, with his fine division, brought up
the reserve column. We shall occupy New
Market to-night. Gen. Shields has so far re
covered from bis wound as to be able to com
mand his division in person.
New Market was taken by Gen. Banks on
the 18th, the enemy having fallen back on the
approach of our troops.
From Gen. McDowell's Division.
On the 17th a portion of Gen. McDowell's
army marched from tho vicinity of Warrenton
Junction across the country to Fredericksburg,
a distance of 2G miles. Their advance was
attacked by a body of rbel infantry and civ
alry and a battery cf artillery which attempt
ed to make two distinct stands. The com
mand, however, pushed on and drove the ene
my's forces from their positions and caused
them to fall back without further resistance,
across the Rappahannock. We were unable
to save the bridges, which were prepared by
the rebels for burning, by having tar, shavings
and light wood placed in the crib work, and
which was set on fire as soon as they had
crossed. Our forces occupied Fredericksburg
at o'ciock on the morning of the loth
having lost 5 men killed and sixteen wounded.
The rebel loss is not stated.
Fort Pulaski Captured.,
New Yqrk, April 18. The steamer Mc
Clellan has arrived from Port Royal with dates
to tbe afternoon of the 14th inst. The follow
ing is an account of the capture of Fort Pu
laski. On tho morning of the 10th, Gen. Gil
more sent a flag of truce to the fort demanding
its unconditional surrender. Col. Olmstcad
replied that be was placed there to defend,
not to surrender tbo fort. Whereupon our
batteries immediately opened fire. A few
rounds shot away their flag, but it was re
placed and tbe firing kept up till sunset.
Gen. Gilmore then placed a battery at Goat
Point, only 1,600 yards from the fort to breach
the walls and commenced firing at midnight,
for that purpose, withParrott and James guns.
On the.uioming of the 11th two breacheswore
discovered on tbe south-east face of the fort,
which at noon assumed huge proportions, and
about 2 o'clock the rebel flag was hauled down,
a white flap displayed, and the fort surrender
ed. Col. Olrastead stated that it was impos
sible to hold out longer, our rifle shots reach
ing tbe magazine and most of bis gnns dis
abled. The Seventh Connecticut took pos
session that night. The rebels lost only three
Tho official report states : "We opened our
batteries on Fort Pulaski on the morning of
tbe 10th. After thirty hours continuous firing
a practicable breach was made. All prepara
tions were made for storming, and it was
about to commence when tbe rebel flag was
struck. We captured 47 guns, 7,000 shot and
shell, 40,000 pounds of powder, 360 prisoners,
with their small arras and accouterments, and
a good supply of provisions. One of our men
was killed, and not one wounded."
. Tho Savannah and Richmond papers are
very severe on Col. Olmstead for what is re
garded as the poor defence he made at Fort
Pulaski. The garrison bad still three months
provisions and two hundred rounds of ammu
nition for each gun, and it is charged that the
aoience was altogether inefficient. On the
other band, one of tbe garrison, who escaped
is represented as asserting tbat the federal bat
teries contained one gun that would put its
shells through tbe walls of the fort at any point
at which it was aimed, rendering the working
of tbe guns almost impossible that all the
barbette guns were dismounted, and most of
those bearing on the batteries in a similar
condition before they surrendered. .
The Siege at Yorktown.
' Near Yorktown, April 18. The rebels on
tbe 16th, witb one thousand men, commenced
to strengthen a battery located about three
miles to tbe left of Yorktown, wben a battery
was brought to bear, causing them to beat a
hasty retreat. Tbe rebels opened with their
heavy guns, when a second battery was brought
forward. . A brisk fire was kept up for about
four Vjrs, darlrg -tich tbrss of tbo enemy's
guns were dismounted, when both parties
ceased for a while, but the fire was renewed on
our part late in the afternoon, and continued
till daylight this morning, effectually prevent
ing the rebels from repairing the datnage-tbey
had sustained. The loss of the enemy must
have been considerable; as the firing of our
artillery was very accurate. Our loss one kill
ed and one wounded. Just after midnight on
the 17th, the enemy attacked Gen- Smith's
position and attempted to carry his guns.
Smith repulsed tbera handsomely, and took
some prisoners. Gen, Smith has entrenched
his position. There is almost constant skir
mishing going on by the riflemen along the
lines, and occasionally shot and shell are
thrown with great rapidity. The enemy at
tempted te turn our left flank beyond War
wick Court House'this morning, but were re
pulsed after a brisk artillery duel. The ene
my was in force, and it is thought thar their
loss was heavy. We lost some 12 men, killed
A party of deserters, who came into our
lines, report the arrival of Jeff Davis in the
rebel camp, and that it is underatood tbat he
would take command In the approaching bat
tle. They represent the enemy to be in great
force, and the work ef entrenching is pro
gressing throughout the peninsula. Rein
forcsments were constantly arriving from
Norfolk, Frederickaburg and even from North
Carolina, and that rebel generals openly de
clare the intention to make this the great bat
tle of the war, and the strongest conviction is
expressed ol a triumph over the Federal
forces, and driving them from tho peninsula.
The Rebel Steamer Merrimic
The belief is very general at Fortress Mon
ro, that the Merriinue received some injury
during her recent raid, which compelled her
to go back to Norfolk. She was undoubtedly
aground on the second day, and may, from the
weight of ,her armament, have sprung a leak.
She i, however, at the Norfolk navy yard,
and there is little doubt undergoing repairs.
When moving about the upper roads on Fri
day last, and exchanging shots with the Nau
gatuck, she was very close to the English
steamer Race, being at one time close along
side, in conversation with an English sailor
yesterday, an experienced gunner, he assured
me that the last time the Merrimac fired, either
her gun burst or the shell exploded before it
left the muzzle. lie was close enough to see
a great commotion on board, and tbe escape
of smoke from her port holes.
The Richmond Dispatch has some comments
on the Merrimac, which it says spent two days
in Hampton Roads bantering the Monitor and
the Yankee fleet to como out from the shelter
of the guns. Tbey claim that she is master of
Hampton Roads. They say she considered it
not .worth while to waste any more coal in
fruitless efforts to entice the Monitor to a con
fiict and returned to her anchorage. The ex
ploitoftho Jamestown, in seizing three ves
sels, is regarded as showing the terror with
which the xankees view the Merrimac.
Gen. Camekon Arrested. The notorious
Pierce Butler, caused a warrant to be issued
in Philadelphia on tho 16th, for tho arrest of
the Hon. Simon Cameron, on a plea of being
falsely imprisoned in Fort Warren by tho Sec
retary of War. In referring to the arrest of
Gen. Cameron, tho Ilarrisburg Telegraph says :
The arrest of Gen. Cameren has caused the
profoundest sensation throughout the country,
and the press with a few insignificant excep
tions, regard it as a new phase of the traitor
aympathy which sbowea itself with so much
vitulenco before Sumter was basely attacked
or our troops at Bull Run so unaccountably
panicized. That he was arrested on the charge
of having falsely imprisoned, while Secretary
of War, certain parties, then charged witb
secession, does not,lessen this feeling, because
the fact Is so clear that these persons bad then
expressed their preferences for the rebel cause.
tbat tbu wonder predominates as to why they
were ever released from prison. The mhole
affair is one of those ridiculous attempts of
such northern traitors to prove to their south
ern friends that they are still devoted to their
alliance, and will of course amount to a fail
ure when properly brought before the courts.
Tho idea of holding a cabinet officer judiclallr
responsible for the arrest of such miscreants
as Pierce Butler, is simply ridiculous.
The New York Commercial Advertiser, in
commenting on the same subject remarks :
"That there were a large number of noisy
defenders of Secessionism at the North nil sum
mer and winter,is just as true as tbat there were
tories in the Revolutionary war. Whether de
signedly or not those men were in effect ren
dering aid and comfort to the foe, by deluding
him with tbe idea that he had only to advance
and he would find all the support among us
that be could require. The testimony of hun
dreds of southern rebels is explicit on this
point. All expected anoutburst of the northern
Breckinridge party, with whose aid the task
of Mexicanizing the country would bo render
ed easy. We say it deliberately that the
strength of the insurgent army was due to
this belief most unlortunately ill-founded.
Northern sympathizers with disunionism either
meant to render Davis and his fellow conspir
ators material aid, or they did not. If the
former imprisonment was far too good for
them, tbey ought not to censure the govern
ment for confining them, but laud its clem
ency for their easy escape. If the latter,
they have been guilty of committing a piece
of most cruel and heartless deception toward
their quondam 'southern brethren' now in
arms against the Union.".
The Philadelphia Press, in alluding to the
subjects, uses the following language
"Of course, following tie example of Mr.
Pierce Butler, we shall have any number of
suits brought against the officers of the Fed
eral Government by the former patriotic occu
pants of FortWarren, Fort Lafayette, and Fort
McHenry. No better plan could be invented
to keep np the excitement against the Gov
ernment, and to cripple the energies of our
gallant soldiers in battle. We shall have some
rare scenes in our courts when this program
me is fully developed. After all these suspec
ted gentlemen are vindicated and indemnified,
Buckner, Tilghman, M'Kall, and all those
caught witb arms in their bands, will insist
npon a trial by jury ; and when we catch Floyd,
Pillow, Cobb and Wise, and Davis and Breck
inridge, these, too, will plead the protec
tion of the Constitution and the laws they
Afraid or their own Weapons. It is a no
table circumstance that the rebel leaders are
now waking prodigious efforts to disarm all
their own citizens, by a compulsory calling in
of all their firearms. . Though the blind put
forth is, that tbe measure ia prompted by tbe
scarcity of arms, and it is given out that will
be paid for (in Confederate scrip.) it is very
evident that it springs from a determination
to render the people aa hnlpless as possible for
tbe purpose of preventing them from origin
ating counter-revulsions. The Richmond usur
pers, while atoutly denying abroad the exist-
ence of a spark of Unionism, either latent or
patent, nevertheless take good care to act at
home on the very sound, theory that a very
deadly hostility to them is rapidly developing,
ant that is to rendor this hostility as inopers
ire as they can. -- , c ...:; -. ,i ... ;:,,
What Rebel Prisoners Thixk. Some of
the Fort Donelson Secesh prisoners confined at
Chicago, have written a letter to the Nashville
Patriot, which they request the Tennessee pa
pers to copy, in which they say : We want to
say to our wlvei, fathers.'mothers, and chil
dren, not to run away from their homes and
firesides, as others have done, even if tbe
Federal forces should come in their midst i
nor grieve themselves unnecessarily on onr
account. We know not (if we are detained
long,) how our wives and children will live,
but we are prisoners of hope, and we have
formed a better opinion of tho Northern peo
ple and the army than we were accustomed to
bear. We are short of clothing, and particu
larly of money.
