CLEARFIELD, PA., FES. 3, 1864.
Gen. Foster telegraphs from Kuoxville,
that on Jan. 23th the cavalry under Gen.
Sturges gained a decided victory over the
rebel cavalry at Fair-Garden. McCook's
division drove the enemy back about 2 miles
after a stubborn fight, lasting from daylight
to 4 p. in., at which time McCook's division
charged with sabre, and routed the ene
my from the field-capturing two steel rifled
guns and over one hundred prisoners. The
enemies loss heavy, 65 of them being killed
and wounded in the charge. Afterwards
our entire force crossed the Ilolstein at
Strawberry Plains, and fell back to a new
position. Our loss of stores at Stawberry
Plains wa3 quite severe. Several caissons
were blown up. About 200 stragglers were
picked up by the rebels. After ciossing the
HoL-tein, our troops burnt the bridge, and
everything else likely to fall into the hands
of the enemy, including a considerable ani
mount of new clothing. On the 22d of
January, the rebels and our sharpshoot
ers were skirmishing across the river, six
miles above KnoxvilL The movements of
the enemy are not clearly understood. It is
supposed that Longstreet will besiege Knox
ville. Men have been put to work on the
fortiScatious. and new batterses put into
position. Longstreet has a strong and well
fortified position at Bull's Gap, whence he
can throw forces into the valley on either
side with great facility. Matters will not
remain long in their present condition.
A reconoisanee to Rome, Georgia has
proved that Bragg' s army has fallen back,
and is not within 45 miles of Chattanooga.
Rebel pickets were at Kingston, 40 miles
south of Dalton, Ga., but were supposed to
be a mark to cover the retreat. Gen. Thom
as reports several skirmishes in which the
rebels were worsted, they having 15 killed,
some wounded and a number of prisoners.
The Union loss was 1 0 wounded.
Several Union transports and a small
land force made a foray at the- Brandon
Farms, on James lliver, on January 23d,
and captured 22 of the enemy, 7 of the sig
nal corps, and brought away 90 negroes.
They also destroyed 24.000 pounds of pork,
large quantities of corn and oats, captured
a sloop and schooner and 240 boxes of tobac
co, and returned without the loss of a man.
According to Rebel newspapers, several
hospital building9 at Camp Winder, near
Richmond, were burned on the 25th January.
A large quantity of commissary stores and
clothing were destroyed. An unsuccesful
attempt was made to burn the Presidential
jnansion at Richmond.
A reconoisance was macb on the 23th
January by Gen. Palmer, to Tunnel Hill,
Georgia, drove in rebel pickets and captur
ed a eonspany of rebel cavalry. The rebels
retreated from Tunnel Hill during the night
having lost 32 killed and wounded. Our
loss was two wounded.
On the 25th January, COO rebels attacked
a Union garrison of 100 at Athens. After
two hours' fight the rebels were repulsed
and driven back. Our loss is 20, the rebels
On the 27tk January, Col. Miller had a
severe fight on this side Florence, repulsing
the enemy. Our loss was 15 killed and 25
The Emancipation Movement in Maryland.
The Baltimore American, of Jan. 25th,
referring to the speeches of Montgomery
Blair, Senator Hicks and Thos. Swann, be
fore the Maryland legislature at Annapolis
on the evening of the 22d January, says :
Mr. Blair's speech is confined to a gener
al discussion of the causes of the rebellion,
and an advocacy of the President's Emauci
4atien and Amnesty Proclamations and does
not toueh upon State matters. Senator
Hicks spoke very briefly, but found oppor
tunity todeclare himself in favor of "prompt
action" by the State in reference to Eman
cipation. There is, he declares, "no prac-
"tical benefit in temporizing over a subject
"which had already been disposed of, virtu
"ally, by current events." Mr. Swann was
more distinct and emphatic in his declara
tions. He declared 'immediate emancipa
tion ' the only remedy, and avowed the in
tention of himself and friends to push the
steed of Emancipation "with whin and spur,
"until every valley and every hill-top shall
"feel the tramp of his glorious mission, and
"the whole State of Maryland, from its cen
tre to its circumference, shall be awakened
"to an edict of universal Emancipation."
These are good words, and if they be well
supported by acts, then, as Mr. Swann said,
we are truly "a united party."
Another Call for Troops.
The President has ordered a draft for
500,000 men to take place on the 10th of
March next crediting and deducting there
from so many as may have been enlisted or
drafted into the service prior the first day of
March, aud not heretofore credited. This
call includes the 300,0i)0 called for some time
pincc, the draft for which had been postpon
ed to the 15th February,
The Five-Twenty Loan.
Some nine months ago a National loan
was established by Congress, known as the
five-twenty loan, and five hundred millions
of dollars were authorized to be sold by the
Government. On the morning, of. the 21st
of January at the opening of business hours,
it was ascertained that but six millions of
the loan remained unsold.
During the day Jay Cooke, the Agent of
the United States and the Government De
pository, and his sub-agents throughout the
country, sold Sixteen Millions of dollars of
the loan. This makes the amount sold ten
Millions of dollars more than has been au
thorized by Congress. We have no doubt
Congress will pass a bill to meet and legal
ize this extra sale.
This loan continues one of the most re
markable features in the financial history of
any country, and its success has no parallel.
Five hundred and sixteen millions of dol
lars of a popular loan sold within nine
months, and all taken by the loyal people
in our own country, in sums from fifty dol
lars to a thousand and upwards ! . This is a
most powerful aud unanswerable argument
for the stability and power of the United
States, and shows t he most unbounded confi
dence of the people in the Government
and the resources of the country. This is
wholly a domestic loan, and the five-twenty
bonds will be kept as keepsakes of patriot
ism by the people until the Government
shall call them in at the appointed time.
The influence of this loau is flit like a sen
timent of loyalty all over the country ; it is
a patriotic cord which unites the people, aud
binds them to the welfare of the nation, and
makes every man, aud the women too, God
bless them, feel an individual interest in the
prosperity of the country. The history
and success of this loan is a lesson worthy of
being deeply studied by caveliers and grum
blers at home and abroad, and no better or
more forcible argument can be presented to
them to prove the groundlessness of their
fears and doubts than the simple facts above
stated. No nation on the face of the earth
can boast of success so complete, and at the
same time so safe and satisfactory to all par
ties concerned.
At Their Old Trick Perversion.
The editors of the Copperhead organ in
this place seem to be constitutionally ad
dicted to preverting and falsifying the lan
guage of others another proof of which we
have in their last issue. In commenting
upon a note which we appended to our no
tice of a certain riot case that was tried at
the last term of our Court of Quarter Ses
sions, they say :
"A more flagrant unprovoked and mis
chievous assault upon a Court and Jury nev
er before disgraced the public press. . . . .
What is here taught? Why, that the fra
cas between Bloom and Addlenian justified
somelxvly in following Bloom 5 miles to
his home." etc. "This is the first lesson
taught in this editorial note. ' '
The editors of the Copperhead organ
knew, when they penned the above senten
ces, that they were falsifying the record.
What we said was this : After briefly sta
ting the origin of the prosecution and refer
ring to several points proven by the defen
dants, we remarked,
We are also informed,thnt the counsel for
the prosecution endeavored to excite the po
litic al prejudices and feelings of the jurors
against the prisoners the jury being divi
ded 10 to 2 politically and that but for this
effort, at least Pyles would have been acquit
ted, if not the others. We have deemed it
but due to the defendants to make this ex
planation, since the cause scorns to have as
sumed more the character of a politcal cru
sade, than the vindication of our criminal
Now, every intelligent reader will at a
glance perceive that what was sai 1 in that
note is the language of others, and we gave
it as such and that the language even as
used is grossly perverted and misrepresent
ed. As no reference was made to the Court,
the statement of these Copperhead editors is
simply false ! And as no one justified the
assault upon Bloom, their gratuitous asser
tion to that effect is as devoid of truth as the
other ! And hence, it is not necessary ior-l
us to consume further time and space with
the subject. Men of intelligence will at
once discover their object. Their "bald
face" perversion of our language will not
avail them to evade the truth !
The Supreme Court of this State has re
versed its decision on the constitutionali
ty of the Conscription Act, made when
Ijowrie, Woodward and Thompson were
the majority on the bench, and now affirms
its constitutionality. This decision is owing
to the displacement of Lowrie by Judge
Agnew by the people at the last election ; a
most righteous verdict on their part. The
Court now stands politically, two Republi
cans, one Democrat, and two Copperheads.
The great sticklers for the constitutionality
of every thing calculated to save the coun
try will be thrown somewhat aback by this
decision. "
Ex-Governor Robt. J. Walker writes
from London that a complete revolution in
public opinion has taken place in regard to
the ability and resources of the North and
destitution of the South, and that Ameri
can securities are stronger and in demand.
During the coming season emigration will
be unusually large. This is looked upon as
glorious news, is a fitting result to the en
deavors of Mr. Walker and other patriots
to open the eyes of Europe to the truth.
It L said that 'deserters are ghot by the
dozen in Bragg' e army.
All the worst that has ever been predict
ed of the Rebellion is now taking place in
the unfortunate" section of our country sub
jected to its control. The beginning of the
end has come. Trade was long ago at an
end. Money is worthless. The basis of
taxation has been destroyed. The area over
which the wretched despotism holds sway
is so narrowed down by Union successes that
one-half of its so-called representatives in
Congress have no constituency, and the
Southern papers are protesting loudly against
men from Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas,
Lousiana, and other States completely un
der Federal sway, and likely to remain so,
burdening the small remainder with unen
durable taxation, and in their desperatiou,
dragging every male between sixteen and six
tyfive years of age into the army. Universal
disappointment in the result of their.stupen
dous crime has been succeeded by universal
distrust and terror. In every little village
throughout the South there is a perfect sys
tem of miliitary despotism the Provost
Marshal exercising supervision, Ly the aid
of guards and detectives, over the acts and
expressions of every one. The system of
espionage is as groat and the terror as wide
spread as in Fiance during the domination
of Robespierre.
The new Conscription Act of the Rebel
Congress is spreading consternation all
over the South. It sweeps off the whole
able-bodied population. There is no draft
ing no chance for substitutes no commu
tation no exemption. Everybody is in
the army, and if anybody chooses to neglect
his duty to report at headquarters, his first
notification of expected duty is by arrest as
a deserter. As a consequence, desertions to
our side are common. All who can escape
come over into the country ruled by the
"tyrant Lincoln" as to the land of Canaan.
The discontent, arising from this cause a
lone has become wide spread, and in the
State of North Carolina has gone so far as
to find expression in combination f. jr resis
tance to the Conf'edrate authority. The Ral
eigh Standard says in reference to the Con
scription Act :
"If the rights of the States are to be ig
nored and swept away by the mere crea
ture of the States the common Govern
' 'mcnt the people of Xorth Carolina trill
"take their oven affairs into their own
"hands" and warns the Rebel Congress
that by persistence in its course it will kin
"dle a ilaine which no effort can extiu
"guish." Alter reciting the special griev
ances in contemplation, now become griev
ances in fact, the Standard threatens that
"the people of North Carolina will rise in
''their imtjesty and assert their sovereignty.
"Therein no power to prevent them from
"doing thi.t, andxeoeto the official character
"who shall attempt to turn i)ie arms of Con
li federate soldiers against the people of this
State. "The dwellers in the Garden of
"Eden when they listened to the tempting
"promises of Satan were not more deceived
'"and ruined than were the people of the
"fair.happy and blooming South when they
"listened to the fair promises of those arch
"deceivcrs, Yancy, Wise fc Co. !"
What bitterness in such a memory ! Has
all the precious blood been spent in vain ?
Have they ruined their country robbed
their people destroyed their young men
abolished industry neglected the arts of
peace endured " hardships impoverished
themselves for this !
Nor is this discontent confined to the
Press of North Carolina. The Atlanta,
Georgia, Intelligencer, also finds fault with
the heartless impressment Act, which has
passed the Rebel Congress. As the follow
ing article from a late number, besides dis
playing its feeling on this particular subject,
also refers to several horrible practices
in vogue in Dixie, we transfer it entire to
our columns :
"How to Raise Men. Congress desires
what was never known in the civilized world
the entire population of the country aban
doning all civil pursuits and taking up arms.
We are not blind to the importance of rein
forcing our army. We feel the necessity,
but believe that other measures can be a
dopted to perform the desired work. Con
gress has called into iervice the seventy or
seventy-five thousand able-boiied men who
have put substitutes into the army. These,
with the one hundred thousand now absent
from their commands, are amply sufficient
to meet all emergencies, and the civil pur
suits of the country can still go Ou, for, if
interrupted any more than they are now,
fearful hardships and sufferings will be the
result. It may be said that getting the one
hundred thousand men absent from duty is
easier said than done. We will show a way
to do it. Abolish the abominable practice of
punishing men by branding in the forehead,
wearing barred shirts, and putting them in
the stocks. Remove from command and
reduce to the ranks those officers who are
tyranizing over their men and treating them
like brutes, and cashier all those who, from
their want of proper discipline and loose
treatment of their soldiers, absolutely en
couraged desertion, and are as much to
blame as the deserters. Let this lie done,
and then let the President issue a proclama
tion to all soldiers absent without leave to
return to their commands by a certain date
or suffer the penalty of death, and, as soon
as the day fixed has expired, shoot every de
serter caught afterward. This will do more
to reiuforce the army than all the sweeping

A Fair Hit. The Boston Transcript

Showing Their Colors.
We find the following significant article
in the Copperhead organ of J an. 27th :
"A Chance for the 'Loyal.' Out of
personal respect to Gen. Hancock, we com
ply with his request, and insert his call upon
the people of Pennsylvania to avoid the draft
by volunteering in the Second Corps. In
doing so, we desire not to be understood as
endorsing the present war policy of the Jac
obins at Washington. In our opinion they
are not prosecuting the war for the restora
tion of the Union, but to render its restora
tion impossible, and to secure the perpetua
tion of their own power. But the catl may
be specially intended for those who endorse
the present war polity. If so, it has our un
qualified approval ; and we call upon every
mother's son of them to enroll their names
at once, and thus prove their sincerity, as
also their 'loyalty, ' by repairing at once to
the field of battle. If they think Mr. Lin
coln is right in his course it is mean in them
withholding their precious carcasses ; and it
is meaner still in them calling upon Demo
crats who honestly love their country, and
conscientiously Ijtdieve that our rulers are now
striving their best to destroy it-to volunteer.
So, gentlemen Leaguers, here is an opportu
nity which you should not fail to embrace. ' '
The above, we opine, is one of the most
contemptible flings against the recruiting up
of the Pennsylvania Regiments, that has ap
peared for a long time, and is only worthy
the source whence it cmenates. But the
most noticeable feature in the article is, that
the editors of the Republican are avowtd-
b' opposed to the "present war policy" of
the National Administration, and hence,
they are opposed to a vigorous prosecution
of the war against the rebels against their
"dear Southern brothers." The call for
men, to which they refer, is issued by the
gallant General Hancock, and the editors
say they publish it only ' 'out of personal res
" pect to Gen. Hancock" not from any love
they have for the Union, for that seems. to
Ihj but a trifle, nor from a real desire to fill
up the Pennsylvania Regiments and call
upon the friends of the Administration's
war policy to enlist, and they assert that it is
"mean' because they do not all, young and
old, halt and maimed and blind, do so ; and
then they declare boldly that "it-is meaner
still for them" Mr. Lincoln, Gen. Hancock,
and their friends "calling upon Democrats'
to volunteer and help to fill up the depleted
ranks of the noble Second Corps. And
why? Because they, the editors and all
those who are opposed to whipping the reb
els, "conscientiously believe our rulers are
now striving their best to destroy it""' the
Union. Now, it is not clear to us, who they
mean by "our rulers striving their best to
destroy" the Union. Certain, it is not Mr.
Lincoln and his Administration, for they
have successfully re-established the authori
ty of the United States over more than one
half of the domain that was under rebel influence-
at the breaking out of the war.
Then who do they refer to? If to Jeff Da
vis ; if they considercr him to be their ruler,
aud if they admit that he is striving to des
troy the Union, then we can see wherein
they 'conscientiously believe" otherwise, it
is beyond our ken, because we conceive that
the whole tenor of their article is intended
to discourage men from enlisting in Gen.
Hancock 's Corps, and calculated to encourage
their friends down in Dixie to which latter
place they should transfer "their precious
carcasses," if they arc as much in love with
it as they seem to be. "An open enemy is
more to be admired than a concealed foe."
