Geo. B McClellan, of this morning, an

men, is another evidence that the power
of Slavery is broken, and that the Nation
has entered upon d new life, with better
prospects %and grander aspirations. I
think every Senator who desires to. per
petuate Slavery voted against the Howe
! stead bill, with the exception a Edgar
Cowan, of our State. Ilis pro-slavery
sympathies and his determitption to de
feat any measure calculated to weaken
Slavery, is clearly manifested every time

credit of the State which he persistently

I am well satisfied. from what I see
and hear every day, that the people might
and ought to exert more influence over
the Legislature' of both Houses. For
instance ; there is scarcely a loyal wan in
the Nation but what feels that the prop
erty of Rebels ought to be confiscated,
and its value put into the Treasury, to
relieve in part, the burdens of loyal men
in sustaining the Government. But not
withstanding this unanimity among the
people, a majority of the Senate, after
tour months discussiob, yesterday voted
to refer all the Confiscation bills before
that body, to a special Committee; and;
this after the Judiciary Committee had!
oiven much time and labor to perfecting
a bill which would make another slave
holding rebellion impossible. I still think,
notwithstanding the referenCe , to a special
Committee, that an efficient Confiscation
bill will vet be passed by this Congress.
But I believe such a bill would have been
passed months ago, and thousands of lives
saved by its effect on the war,if the people
had made themselves heard more fre
quently by fetter and otherwise, It is
not yet too late to do something, and I
hope every reader of the JounNAL 'who
desires to shorten the period our soldiers
will be required in the South, will write
a letter to Senator Cowan and other Rep
resentatives, making known the datuands
of the people on this subject. The ten
derness manifested by several Senators
for the feelings and comfort of the Rebels,
is humiliating as well as disgusting.—
, Nevertheless the skies are 'brightening.
The power of Slavery is brsAten, and if
the people are only moderately alive, it
will soon begin to pass away. 1 have en

a humble way, the glorious work of over

of the hard-fought action of yesterday.
The effect of Haucock's brilliant engage.
mant Yesterday afternoon, was to turn the
left of their line of works He was strong
lv reinforced, and the enemy abandoned
the entire position during the night, leav
ing all his sick and wounded in our hands.
His loss yesterday was very severe. We
have some three hundred uninjured pris
oners,and more than a thousand wounded.
Their loss in killed is very heavy.
The victory is complete. I have sent
cavalry in pursuit.
The conduct of our men has been ex
cellent. with scarcely an exception. The
enemy's lines are very extensive and ex
ceedingly stiong, both in respect to their
position and the works themselves.
Our loss is heavy in Hooker's division,
hut very little on other parts of the field.
Hancock's success was gained with a
loss of cot over twenty killed and
wounded. Weather good, today, ,but
great difficulty in getting up food, on ac
count of the roads. Very few wagons

of other generals, and direct names of

Id their eight gunboats in the encounter,
land it will be• realized that never was a
day's news from so many and fiueb re
mote points so auspicious to the speedy
collapse of the rebellion.
, Probably the most desperate, brilliant
and thoroughly successful fighting of this
war was that whereby the National fleet
on the Mississippi assailed and passed
the forts St. Philip and Jackson inteirded
to bar the ascent of the river, broke the:
big chain thrown across the mighty cur
rent, captured, sunk, or disabled the irun- . ,
clad rams, fire-ships, and gunboats of the
Rebels, forced their way up to New Or
leans, took possession of that Rebel em
porium, and compelled the forts left be
hind to surrender. Though not the most! (
sanguinary, this was, as a whole, the most
brilliant achievement of the war. But'
the fighting of the Grand .4-Vmy of the
.Potomac has been splendid, and the
recent generalship of -McClellan cum.'
wands: universal praise. Flom the hour
that Yorktown was evacuated by the
Rebels as untenable, their retreating col
nuts have been pressed with great vigor,
and it seems with caution and judeewent
as well. An army retreating through a
friendly ;Ind difficult country, breaking
dawn the bridges as a passes, and destroy- I
ing all that could serve its pursuers, can
of course outstrip those pursuers, and by
turning suddenly in force upon their ad
vance, can engage them with a'great ad-,
vantage in numbers or push them back
on their main body. Hence our advance
under Hooker and Hentzlernan had to
fight against odds at Williamsburg or give
ground disastrously; and. so with Frank
lin's and Sedgwick's Divisions, hurried
off by transports to West Point to inter
cept'. the flight of the Rebels. But in
either case the Confederates were ulti
mately defeated and compelled to accel
erate i heir flight, so that the moral effect
of these combats is decidedly favorable,
though their losses in action may not
have greatly exceeded our own. An army
of Seventy or Eighty Tht.usand effectives,
, retreating over its own ground without
having fought and lost a filched battle,
has seldom been pushed nadi r fuse-r, or
with smaller loss to its assailants, than
the Rebel host since it stole av% ay from
its intrenchments at Yorktown. WiLli
