l&iiitsmms Journal 1 -rjflkw- BY S. J. ROW. CLEARFIELD, PA., FES. 3, 1864. THE WAE NEWS. 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 greater." On the 27tk January, Col. Miller had a severe fight on this side Florence, repulsing the enemy. Our loss was 15 killed and 25 wounded. 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 statutes. 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. REBELLION RUN MAD. 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 consriptions". Resignation of Senator White. The Harrisburg Telegraph of yesterday (Tues day) morning contains the resignation of Maj. Harry White, as a member of the Pennsylvania State Senate, which had been transmitted to Speaker Penny by Maj. White's father, on Monday, February 1st A Fair Hit. The Boston Transcript says : "The Davises, Jeff, and Garret, are at the head two co-operating factions. Jeff, leads the rebela and Garrst the copper heads." , 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.
