Crime - only - dies when it cannot liVe.—
Throughout the whole desolated dominions
of treason, the voice of lamentatiOn and
mourning is heard. Davis, the arch fiend
of this. wicked fraternal war, has left his
capitol to heal dissensions and if possible
inspire hopes in his shattered legions in
Tennessee and Georgia. He issued an ad
dress to Bragg's army, imploring them to
struggle on, and informed them that al
though they "have done much, vety much
remains to be done ;" and in a speech de
livered at. Selma, Alabama, he said that
they "should not look to , Etirope for aid,
Arsuch is not to be e. petted now. 7. While
,with Bragg he relieved Gen.
_from duty, and placed Breckinridge in corn
mand of the corps. He complimented Gen.
Bragg, and indicates his purpose to sustain
him'in command, notwithstanding the dec
huation of the , Chattanooga Rebd that
"Bragg io not only no Genera-but that he
- .
14 opposed to .all Freedom—of the press ands
- - piarsobal liberty 7 ati the most dangerous
oentre of power in the Confederate States."
While the battle of Chickamauga has
been accepted 'by the North as a serious
' disaster, the. rebel journals complain bitter
ly of the fruitless 'slaughter of that sangui
nary struggle. They say that it accom 7
fished nothing and that, the victory' was,a
barren one in all things save the loss of
aver- 17,000 of their army. The Richmond
Whig says that with the Union army still
in Chattanooga "our victory will be with
out profit, 'and we have only to mourn that
so many brave men have died in vain."—
The Columbus (Ga) Enquirer gives the dß
' obi' list of killed, wounded and missing it
Chickamauga at 174)99 t
Lee's late movement against Meade has,
proved a
. grievous disSppointment to the
rebels . The Richmond Examiner calls it
slailure aid acknowle l riges that "no ex,
lunation of the-cause las_yet been .received
Confederate source." It admits that
meted-" to interpose ,a corps of his
army between a large portion of Meade's
forces at Culpepper and Washington ;" and
this, it allows, was unsuccessful, as " the
43tiemy became cognizant of the plan at the'
{Ulnae - tit of its - execution, and retrcatecrwith
sufficient deliberation to destroy all their
stores that they did not carry,off to the for-
Tifications at Centreville." The same paper
; speaking of the Bristow Station fight says
We lost four hundred and fifty prisoners,
- five pieces of cannon and were generally
worsted." A correspondent of the Whig
say's that Stuart had started on amid, "but
tame upon a'column of the enemy' in£an•
• try near Drainesville and was compelled to
return." The same ' correspondent gives
the following doleful account of the condi:
Lion Of Lee's arniy : -
"Before closing, let me say's' word:to our
iwtne t l / I :Es about our stio .4 , 25 s soldiers. That
word shall be simple and practical. 1" have
um brave men who had Walked all the way
from the Rapidan. to Bristow Station and back
to Culpepper with bare feet. And these
same men bad never straggled, but were al ;
ways. ready to meet , the foe. I saw these
men on yesterday morning, making their
way with'uneovered feet, through mud, and
mire, and slosh, in the midst of a heavy rain,
' with as much indifference to the storm, and
- wore of houyaney and cheerfulness than can
well be imagined under the circumstances.
The GovernMent cannot furnish these men
Shall private munificence fail?
,Must the
men,w o are standing like a wall of fire be
, tween us and the foe go Unremembered, when
private liberality can readily supplement the
governmental deficiency? Shoes and socks,
too, Are needed. Where, are our brave Wo
men, and why do they not respond?"
The Richmond Enquirer's correspondent
writing from Bristow Station says:
4.41.. is certainly true that Meade has man
aged his retreat most orderly, and that he
,haa'saved his stores, and lost but few men.
Our boys have been sadly disappointed in
their expectations of capture, and from more
than one of them you can hear such an ex.-
piession as this: 7 -1f Jackson had been along,
we would have got everything we wanted.
Alas! we have no Jackson now. Out hoyl,
however, make the Yankees whom they cap
-tare pull off their shoes, Which they at once
convert to their own use.",:_!
- - less salt can be had the supply of Meat next
year will be much less than thisyear. "There
are hogs enough and corn enough to make
for the next year more bacon than we have
had heretofore, but unless Salt can be got
the baCon will' not be saved.'" The ques
tion of food is confessedly a most grave one
thronghoirt the South within rebel lines.
In Riehmend a vote was had recently on
the adoption.of an ordinance regulating the
prices of household articles.
The late elections in the Rebel States have
been marked by the defeat of most of .the
old officials—a thing most unusual in the
-South, and it can beexplained only by' the
' dissatisfaction of the people with-the 'lead
: , ers who - prostituted their official positions
to bring about the rebellion. The Rich
`mond . -Sentinel says that the election in
Georgia, has " developed a popular mania
for new men," and adds that "it is more
; than doubtful whether any old member of
• 4longress has been re-elected except Mr.
[t as tin g& It says, too, that "new men.
have, generally been elected to the Legisla.
ture" and explains by saying that " thizD
restlessness of the people, and injustice to '
their old and faithful servants, is due to
the ergakings by which they have been
made dissatisfied."
The Milledgeville. (Ga.) Recorder says
that " eighteen 'negroes have
.been lodged
in Sparta jail, Hancock county, for com
bining and attempting to incite insurrection.
They had been. holding secret meetings and
planing matters. In all about one hundred
in number are implicated. : Their opera
tions have been extensive."
The Examiner, in an article on the situ
ation in East Tennessee says: .
"Our government do not seem alive to the
importance of retaining this country. The
people of the Confederacy were, sorely east
down by the - I of Vicksburg. The value
of Vicksburg uswas nothing compared
with that of t. East Tennessee. Vick burg af
forded us nothing; from East Tennessee and
,the adjacent, counties of North Carolina:and
Virginia we are to draw the meat upon which
the army is to be fed during the current and
;the coming years."
The Mayor of Charleston has published a
notice requiring - all able-bodied male free
negroes in that city to report themselves for
thirty • days' labor on the fortifieations.—
Those failing to report are to be impressed.
The following notice for the inforination of
owners of slaviis in Charleston is also 'pub- .
fished :
"The penalty for neglect or refusal to send
a slave or =slaves. to work. on the fortifications,
according to law, shall be deemed a misde
,meanor, ° punishable by indictinent an the
Court of General Sessions, mid 'upon convic
tion thereof the owner or employer shall be
fined in the sum of two hunnred dollars for
each slave or slavesche or she has so neglected
or refused to send."
Sensation newspaper correspondents have
well nigh exhausted the decalogue to find
reasons for the removal of Rot,ecrans from
the command of the Army of the CuMber
land• No General shared more largely of
the conidenee and
.affections of the loyal
people than did the hero of luka and j Stone
River, and they yielded to the necesSity 'of
his displacement with mingled surprise and
sorrow. He has been a faithful and hith
erto successftil soldier; and in his ,retire
ment from active command the public will
readily accept any reason therefor, that is
consistent with his fidelity to his govern
ment •aud his ...haracter as, a military leader.
Like himself, we defer to the judinnent of
those' in - authority who are charged with
the responsibility of directing artily , opera
tions, and we doubt,not that when - the truth
is ascertained, the ;reasons for the chajige
will be satisfactory.
In his farewell order to his arms, Gen.
Rosecrans uses the following patriotic lan
"In taking leave of you—his brothers
arms, officers and soldiers—he congratulates
you that your new cormnander cornea to you
not as a stranger: Gen. Thomas has been
identified with this army from its first or
ganization, and has led you often in battles.
To his renown, precedents, dauntless courage,
-and true patriotism, you may look with con
fidence that, under God. he will lead you to
victory. The General commanding doubts
irt, you will be as true- to yourselves and
your country in the future; as you have been
in the past.
Gen. Rosecrans reached' Cincinnati on
the e 26th ult, and was most enthusiastically
welcomed by his old friends and neighbors.
Judge Stever forwally welcomed him, -and
the General responded in a speech replete.
with the sentiments of a true soldier and
patriot. 'We quote : -
"I see that you have been watching with
the deepeSt interest the contest with treason
which has imperiled the Government. And
I say to:you. that while my heart beats with
yours for the preservation of the GcArernment
under which we live, and under Which we
hopeto die, I must remember my duty to
that •Gevernment. I must remember,
that yon have some doubt why AIM Govern
sent me here. Let us ever bear in mind
my friends, that it is our duty to Yield ready
and perfect obedience to our Gorernment at 11
times, and grant it the privilegeof issuing
orders for le hieh we must - presume it has good
rrca-son6 until we knowthe contrary. i[Cheers.]
Therefore, I hope them - is no ,disposition
among you to question the Goverbment.
do not say to you to stifle your feelings, but
to wait for further light. ,To prevent any
misunderstanding will state here, ' that
since the battle of:Chickamauga. •the Presi
dent has. written me personally to express his
satisfaction as what was done. [Enthusias
tic cheers.] Some very kind friend's, , excel
lent, friends of mine, of the- Cities Of New
York and Washington, seem•to lye posted up
in regard' to my health. [_Laughter.] The
Army of the Cumberland thinks j differently
—it thinks I am . well enough; so I do myself.
[Laughter and cheers.] One of my New
York friends has published, to the world that
Gcns. M'Cook and Crittenden hriVR - conspired
against me. Now; I have the assurance from
' them to-day, that they regret the use of their
I - names in any such dishonorable connections.
[Cheers.] As to the * quantity of opium I
have taken, you will bare to excuse me—t
refer you to my druggist... [Laughter.] I
have nothing further to say than this—that
if anything gives me hope for th, e future of
our country, it is the noble and ,Iself-saerifle
frig' spirit manifested by the people, vtho, in
I spite of the weariness of war—of the loss of
friends and relatives, of children, fathers and
brothers, and all that war entail's—are devo
ted and unyielding. [Cheers.] They are
still convinced that if there is any, hope for
this country in the future, it is in the unity
ancl o preservationofour Government, [Cheers.
ltiS for that I live, and for that /' expect to
die. [Long and continued applause.] -
A correspondent of ttte Pittslurg Com

unanimously endorsed the position assumed
by Hon. John Cessna, of Bedford, in con
testing the seat of Hon. Geo. W. Housel;o1-
der, viz ;—that the counties in existence at
the adoption of the Oimstitiition in 1790 were
entitled to a separate representation. The
Republicans of the House were unwilling to
place themsel vas on rectol against the liOsition
of Mr. Cessna. The minority of

question at all. By applying tfie'sarire prin

With its toils and short-lived joys:
Like morn's mist seen in the sunshine
Seem the days when wo were boys
Th' reapers had their joy in striving
• tiatittring in the golden grain—
I was reaping joy in loving
Little darling Bessie Lane.
One wild autumn day, while playing
With the coined maple leaves,
Tying thorn in little bundles,
/ Calling them my harvest sheaves—
They told me, a wild horse rushing,
' • His nostrils spread, mad with pain,
Stamped his hoof upon the forehead
Of my darling, Bessie Lane.
I had seen the fiery lightning
Tear apart a forest tree;
But 'twos not half So terrible
As this fearful tale to me;
Poi I could see, oh 1 how plainly.
. O'er her brow the bloodzled stain,
While her blue eyes looked se fondly-
Ohl my darling Bessie Lane.
Alma that I should hear the rambling
Of the falling clammy clay, .
Sounding on .the little coffin
Where my darling Bessie lay.
Still to mo that sound is carried. ! • ,
Par across lire's troubled main.
Sad requiem forth' hopeal buried.
With my darling Bessie Lane. . S.
