Department at Washington, to Governor

Everybody who is acquainted with the

knows that it would - make no assertion
such as the above, without good authority.
But Indiana is not Gamily State where
the AdMiniatration has used the Nation's
money lee means of aiding Republican

fu ds were drawn directly out of the Gov

the Connvicut and Rhode /eland t o

at leait by the Republican papers, though
explicitly charged upon the Administra

publican; a tinir days ago, ho bojdly de
fended these acts, on the assumption that
the Democrats were as great enemies to
the nation as the rebels, and that the Ad
ministration was as much authorized to
use the public means for the piitting down

sity of Abolition . malice and fanaticism,
that we doubt not two-thirds of the party
would agree with this individual.
- The preachers of county, as a
class, are not in the habit \ lo carrying pol
itics into their pulpits, but we regret to
le c arn that there are a few whose sermons
partake generally more of the style of Ab

miniitrations.: To all such.we would rec
ommend the following extract froni\the
writings and biography of Dr. ADA*
CLARKE, the great commentator. It will
beaound in vol. 1, piles 160-61 of his life:
,"When preachers of the gospel become
parties in icirty politics, rehgion mourns,
the Church is unedified, and. politicardis
pijtes agitate even the faithful of the
Such- preachers, no matter which
side they take, are no longer messengers
of glad tiding'', but the seedstnen ot con
fusion, and wasters of the heritage of
Christ." * I*,"Though," says his biogra
pher. "Ifr.'Clarke had fully made up his
mind-on the polities of the day, and nev
er swerved from his Whig principles, yet
in the pulpit was nothing heard from hits
but Christ crucified, and the salvation
procured by his blood."

bow swinging to the strong ebb tide, and
threatening to bring her on the 'hens to
her right. She was, therefore. compelled
to come to anchor to stay her course.—
Meantime thifirst fors monitors bad con-
tinned on toward. the fora The enemy
allowed the' Weehawken to come within
500, yards of Fort' Moultrie, when tee
shots across her bow from this fort opened
the .action.,— , .
The /rotailes hail again got under way,
and approachedsvithin 1,200 yards of Fort

manageable, and was again obliged to drop
anchor. The monitors ahead of _her bead
reached the converging point:of the fire
of the Cu mm i ngs Point battery, Fort
Sompter, Fort Moultrie, and a work be
tween Fort Moultrie and Ifoultrietille;-
known as Battery Bee. A sheet Of flame
and volumes of smoke, extending from
Morris to Sullivan's Mande, inaugurated
what has been undoubtedly the mot ter
rific cannonade of the *hole war,
i 4 in
deed, it was ever equalled in the hieing
of the world. A. parfait, torrent of -shot
end shell was poured upon the monitors,
wriPping them sometimes almost entire
ly in spouts of water thrown. up by the
striking projectiles.
The monitors continued their play, re
plying vigorously from their' batteriet to
the enemy. They passed the • northout
face of Fort Sumpter, but when they came
near its angle with the northwestern
they made out at ti short distanCe three
distinct lines of obstructiOns, consisting of
floatinglogs with toipedoeslittached, and
net-works of cables held perpendicularly
in the water , by weights. The Patapsco
got foul of one of them, and.....eiorald not
make her screw work for some fifteen
minutes, but finally got clear. A torpedo,
exploded close to the bew'of the•Weehaw

structions could not be reached. Attlee,
several vain attempts, the four , vessels
turned about imd'steamed back down the
harbor,. all the , while sustaiaing a heavy
fire, and responding with their 'guns as
vigorously as they could. The- Patapsco
had her 200-phund Parrots gurv'dimibled
by its own reboil early in the action. The
turret of the Passaic was bent in, and
cramped her l I-inch gun Bois to prevent,
its working. Shortly - afterwards, her tur
ret stopped, revolving, and she lost all of
fensive power:.
The Ironsides had, meantime, .vainly
struggled to CiNlle closet to Fort Sumpter.
The rebel genders finding her a fixed
mark, pied her freely with shot and shell:-
Her position was such that she, could not
bring her broadsides to bear until about
4 o'clock, when she sat en opportunity
deliv,er, ter, fi re at Fort Moultrie. This
the onlyoffensivedemonstration made
by her during the action. '
When Admiral Dupont found that he
could not readily move the Ironsides, , be
signalled to the fouriron-clads behind her
to pass ahead and go to,the support of the
four Teasels already engaged. in trying
to pass by, the Catskill and Nantucket
brushed the lronsides on the port and
starboard sides, but after awhile' managed
to get away mid moved 00.
They and the Keokuk and Nahant
came under the concentric range of the
forts and batteries at about the time the
other four monitors were turning back.—
They nevertheless advanced, with their
guns at work briskly past the' ,northeast
face of Fort SUmpter, until their course
was likewise impeded by obetructions.—
The Catskill, Nantucket and Natant re-,
' ceived the united fire of both Forts Sump
ter and Moultrie.
The Keokuk bad steered a little more
to the left, and for a while received the
fire cif. Fort Sumpter alone. ' She fired the
gun in her forfrard turret but three times,
when it became disabled. If er after gun
could not be brought to bear effectively,
and was thus. rendered useless. • After
continuing under the united .firos of all
the forts and batteries for shalt - three
quarters of an' hour, all the monitors and
the Whitney Battery , came back in obe
dience to a signal from the flagship. -
The Ironsides had already dropped back,

of range, an 4 the action' ceased..
