THE 7AE IfETTS.
Tba reconnoisaace in force across the Eap
idan. which we noticed last week, was a eov
rr to an expedition fitted out by Gen. But
ler at Norfolk. The expedition nambere3
fnie 12,000, cavalry, infantry and artillery,
and was intended to make a sudden dash in
to .Richmond and release the Union prison
ers, white our furoes at the Rapidan attract
the rebels attention. The expedition pro
ceeded up the peninsula and reached the
Chicahomin 10 mi'.e.s from Richmond, at
2 o'clo.'k on Sunday, when it was. brought to
a suJ lea halt by trees being cut down so as
to blockade all the crossings and obstruct
the roads. The expedition not being able
to advance returned to Norfolk. Rebel pa
pers say that a deserter informed theui of
the project in time to blockade the roads.
A portion of Gn. Sherman's expedition
attacked on the Yazoo on the 5th inst.
by 3.00') Rebels. After a smart fight the
rebel) were route'l and driven off. Eiirht
Union men were killed, and 30 wounded ; I
.lieoel loss not known. The occasion was
marked by an act worthy of record. A reb
el lieutenant an J two privates deliberately
murdered a negro soldier, who was sick and
had straggled from our lines. The rasc&ls
were caught, made to kneel on the negro's
dead body, and were shot.
A dispatoh from Lake City, Florida, da
ted Feb. 8. published in Richmond on the
6, says that "eighteen vessels, gunboats and
transports, are reported by the command
ing officers at Camp Finnegan as having ar
rived at Jacksonville. The enemy, presum
ed to be in large fores, hare landed and
were last night reported as advancing."
A dispatch from Vicksburg on Sunday
states that Jackson is in the possession of
the Federal army under Major-General Sher
man, after .slight skirmishing, with but little
loss to our forces.
On Friday afternoon and evening Moshjf
mode several dashes on our pickets near
Manasses. killing two or three of them. A
cavalry force was sent out in pursuit.
We have a story, not fully authenticated,
that over 10) Union officers escaped from
Libby Prison, in Richmonl, last week. Four
or five had been retaken.
A train on the Baltimore and Ohio llail
roal was intercepted by guerrillas last week,
who robbel the pa-is-jngers of about 33 J.O JO
and then ma le off.
A dvie:u fVoni Charleston announce, the

Pennsylvania Common Schools.
Thi Superintendent in his annual report
to the Legislature, shows that the number
of common schools in the State, not inclu
ding Philadelphia city, is 12, 161; an increase
on the last year of 171. Thi whole attend
ance of pupil is 034.4)9, an increase of 19,
412. Average attendance of pupils 97,922;
increase, 9.G59. Average length of tchor-1
term, 5 months, 14 days; increase, 4 days.
Average cost of each pupil, per month, 50
cents ; an increase of 1 cent. Number of
Teachers, 14.442 ; increase, 62. Total cost
of tuition, 1.493,040; increase, $130,
$59. Total cost of the S3'stem. including
$4(5,030 appropriation in Philadelphia
schools, $2,254,099 ; increase, $56,934.
The total number of pupils, including Phil
adelphia, is 703,353, and the whole cost
the system, including the amount paid by
.Philadelphia, is $2.S33,199 ; an increase of
$104,604. Theso facts are encouraging to
the friends of a school system. Notwith
standing the war, the average attendance
has been larger, the average per cent upon
the whole number in attendance one half
per cent greater than last year. There were
717 less male teachers, and 799 more female
teachers in 1S63 than the year previous,
owing to the war. The per centage of at
tendage in the State 'Schools is only 63.5,
while in Philadelphia ;it is 84. 4. Mr. Co
burn is in favor of stability in the system,
anfi opposed to frequent changes, and there
fore recommends little legislation. The dif
ficulties and uncertainty of defining the
"number of pupils attending," has caused
the introduction of a bill in the House re
quiring the distribution of the school fund
according to the taxables returned, as it had
been until last year.
General U. S. Grant. .
-. The Cincinnati Commercial speaks with
mueh positiveness concerning Gen. Graut's
relation to the Presidency. It says: '"We
have authentic occasion for saying that,
under no circumstances, will he be a candi
date for the Presidency, or permit his naae
to come before a National Convention for
such purpose, if his positive declination of
the honor will prevent it. So far as his o
pinions are well known, he is in favor of the
denomination and re-election of Mr. Lincoln.

tTba Enrollment Bill.
After considerable filibustering in the
House on Friday, February 12. the substi
tute offered by Gen. Schenck, Chairman of
the Military Committee for the Enrollment
bill, was passed by a vote 93 to 58. The
principal features of this new bill are as

Negroes, both slave and free, are to be

loyal nvnters be drafted or enlist, a bounty
of 81 00 is to be paid to inn.'-tirs who prove

Tbe "Democratic" Party Dead.
The Now-York Herald of February 4th,
contains the following declaration:
' The World on the Democratic Par
ty'. In an article on "The Democratic Par
ty and Slavery,' 'the World yesterdav as
sumed to correct the views of General Gantt
on the "great and loyal democratic party,"
and to enunciate, as if by authority, what
the principles and policy o the democratic
party are. It is amusing to find the World
speaking for the democratic party. Only a
short time ago that paper was started as a
very pious Sunday onran, intended to regen
erate this wicked conmiunity. Then it was
sold out. and became .devoted to the Inter
ests of .shoddy and pork ami molasses. Iast
ear, just before the fall election, it w;is
bought up te be added to the Mozart politi
cal machine, and now it speaks for the Dem
ocratic party. We were acquainted for for
ty years with the organization known as the
democratic party, and ice know it to be dead
and Lirrit'L Not a vestige of it; is left.
There is an organization of contract brokers
that oscillates between Tammany Flail and
Mozart Hall, and buys and sells votes, that
calls itself the democratic party ; but there
is no democratic party."
Governor Letcher said recently in an
address at Canviile, Virginia, that "Stone
wall" Jackson was in favor of conducting the
war under the black flag, and expressed
himself several days after secession of Vir
ginia, proposing to set the example by first
carrying that flag in the face of the enemy.
Jackson was a model "Christian." - . - -
Honors to General Meade.

on Tuesday, I y the city authorities of Phil

that "they would rather leave their bones up
on the battle-field or drive back the -invaders."
-all the military tact and genius of the
world would have availed nothing. I there
fore now desire publicly to give to them that
credit to which they are most justly enti
tled. The army has bi inspired with a
spirit of devotion such as seldom applies to
any arn.y, and this is evidenced in the fact
of l(i.(o:. men bavins been cither killed or

honor, for which I most sincerely thank you
and those assembled.
This done, the public were admitted to
the room, and hand shaking began in earu
nest. It continued for a full hour. Up
roarous cheers for General Meade were giv
en at intervals by the throng that failed to
find room inside. The congratulations of
fered to the General were heart' and earnest.
A New Base of Operations.
The New York Ilaohl and the World
seem to have adopted a m?w 'base of opera
tions.' Both these papers have, in a late
issue, put forth a proposition to "amend
''the National Constitution so that Slavery
"maybe abolished in ui! future time. -and
''inall States hereafter to be admitted in
'to the Union."
It is truly astonishing to see how these
old fogies who have been wedded to the
heresies of the past, and who have been
harping upon that one-stringed instrument,
the '"Constitution us it 'v." for the last three
years propose mm iidinfiits to the Consti
tution so as to oljoUdi slavery entirely, thus
trying to shift their sails to that which now
seems to be the popular breeze. The Ad
ministration, and all who are in favor of a
vigorous prosecution of the war, have been
anathematized by these itur and their pu
ny ,Sattlitr&s "Abolitionits" ever since the
outbreak of hostilities, end jet, we would
not be surprised to see them becoming more
ultra "Abolitionists" than those whom they
so much censure as such, and that they wil!
be found side by side with Wen. loll Phil
ips, Lloyd Garrison uwl Gcrrctt .Smith, in
their "crusade" against slaviry, cro very)
many -months roll round.
Perhaps, the editors of the Copprrlaid
ar'jiiii in this place had better ttick a pin

and dustv records.
VThat has Been Dogs ?:'
The above question is frequently a.-ked by
those who sympathise with the Southern
rebellion r.r.J who seem t-o ii-ire the suc
cws.s of the rebel over tbe Union arms, as
thoush they believed that the armies of the
United States had made no material pro
gress towards subouing the gigantic rebel
lion wii h which they are now engaged. For
the iufoi mat ion of those who are skeptical
on this iubject. and who affect' to disbelieve
the ability of the National Government to
re-ostabii.sh its authority over all the rebel
lious States, we append the fallowing item
from an exchange :
"At tht- beginning of the war in IbOl.the
Start's and territories claimed by therel-cis
ath'ir confederacy, contained 1,222,800
souare miles, with a population, white and
biaek. of 12,:?.4S,07o. In December last.,
the Federal troops had retaken xi7 .Duty
square miles, with 7.7o2.9'.t7 inhabitant;;",
leaving to the rebels t-ss than one-third of
the territory, and a little over one third cf
the inhabitants. At this rate one year more
will clo.se the war, and restore to the Union
lKth the territory and the people that have
been so vilely ptolen awav."
The Maryland House of Delegates on
Saturday passed the bounty bill, which was
sent from tie Senate, without amendment.
It has. therefore, become a law. It provides
a State bounty for volunteers of $.125 to vet
erans re-enlisting, I including those who have
been in the service six months, ) and a boun
ty of $200 to other persons. The owners of
slaves who agree to their enlistment and ex
ecute a valid deed of manumission receive
$ 100 for cacjh slave so enlisting. The intent
of this -section, as explained in the debase,
is to give to the owners $100 in addition to
the $:! given by the United States on like
conditions. To the slave on enlisting the
bill gives $50, and a similar suui when he is
honorably discharged from service. Four
millions of dollars are appropriated to meet
the expenditures under the bill.
Gen. "Wool has publicly expressed his be
lief that Buchanan knew the design of the
rebels before his election, and that he prom
ised, if elected, not to interfere, but to pro
mote their work in every possible manner.
Maj. White has leen transferred from
the Libby Prison at Richmond to a dungeon
in Salsburv, North Carolina. This is no
doubt another trick of the Copperheads in
order to prevent his escape from prison.
The five-twenties are already at a premi
um ot tour to jive percent. t
The Democratic Senators on the EtiteDeht
The course of the Copperheads in the"j
State Senate is without excuse. Not only
is their factious opposition to an organiza
tion such as the people declared should be
made, an insult and an outrage, but their
refusing any legislation for the payment of
the interest on the State debt falling due on
the 1st inst. except in gold, is virtually a
robben- of the tax payers of the State, as
it will require six hundred thoujnd dollars
additional to be drawn from the State Treas
urer to meet it. To state the cae clenrly
we will observe that .after the- reading of fhc
Governor's message in relation to this sub
ject, appealing (o the Legislature to make
provision for the payment of the interest al
luded to without destroying the banks or
plundering the Treasury, Senator Council.
Union member fiom Philadelphia, offered
the following resolution :
Re.ihed, That the State Treasurer be di
rected to pay the interest falling due on the
1st of February next in the lawful currency
of the government, collected of the people
for taxes and now in his hands, except only
the interest on tha loans known as the In
clined Plane and Coupon Loans.
Now where is the man who wiil hesitate
for a moment in saying that this resolution
should have passed without a -dissenting
voice? But it lost icry Democratic Sen
ator voting against it, the Union Senators
voting for it. Thus by a direct vote and it
is upon record the Democratic Souators
have resolved that while the legal currency
of the nation' is good enough for the people,
gold must be paid to the holders of our
stocks a Lirge proportion of whom are for
eigners. Nothing but a studied determina
tion to discredit our currency, embarrass our
finances, exhaust fur treasury, and impose
needless burdens upon our people, can ex
plain such suicidal folly. Thy liuve assum
ed a fearful responsibility, and they must ac
count for it to the people. Columbia Ju

in alluding to the report that Mr. Bayard,
United States Senator from that State,
"shed tears" w hen the oath of allegiance was
demanded of him. remarks :
"1 1 must have been a touchingsight. Trea
son has drawn no tears from eyes v leaky
now ; war, with its" hin-ors, has devastated
the hearts and homes ot the noble and the
loyal North, but the tear-fountains of our
loyal Senator were sealed. But the oath of
allegiance, taken so cheerfully by every Ioc
s' Senator, stirs grief in the bosom of Mr.
Bayard, and the curtain of his public ca
reer falls amid a tragedy of cheap tears.
Now, Mr. Kiddle (the Copperhead appoint
ed in the place-of Bayard I is a tenaer heart
ed man ; why didn't he shed a few when he
took the oath. If the oath was so despica
ble and base, that, having taken it Mr. Ba
yard had to resign, how could Mr. Kiddle
take it voluntarily? It is a mystery that
one of Mr. Bayard s own party could have
