Ought such a dangerous and unprincipled

be dealt with accordingly ? In all probabili

Dechert is a fain specimen of northern trai

who are at the 'same time exerting all their
powers to prejudice the loyal masses against
the government, and by thus weakening its
hold upon the confluence of the people, aid the
cause of the rebellion. And yet these vile
conspirators proclaim themselves Union men

A felt days ago . tote of the tdoi `qtinguish

Conspiracy in that State for the purpose of
resisting the payment of "the tot necessary
to the pr mention of hostilities against the
rebels, a it will be perceived from the fore
going ettr that this plan is to be enforced
with "poir er add lead." ThitSe wretched
traitors, in their complaints on the increase
of contrabands in Washinton and elsewhere,
boldly lay the responsibility for this evil
upon . the present COngress, thus eenvieting
themselves of a shameless falsehood. The
fugitive slaves in Washington have rim off

done is td see that these friendless and

and for diseharging this holy and imperative
duty, it is made the target of, calumny and

Some Truth for Dough Pacer.— The
Louisville Courier, once the 4 organ o f the
Breckinridge Democracy of Kentucky, re
moved first to Bowling Green, then to Nash
ville, and seemed to,have "gone up" when
the traitors evacuated the latter, city. It
was there that it put forth the following
philosophy of the rebellion, to which we
invite the special attention of northern
Sympathisers with the Traitors generaly.-- 7
Were not all patriotism, all self-respect en
tirely dead in these craven creatures they
could not helpe but rise in their manhood
and stand side by side with the administra
tion and demand that this rebellion shall "he
put down if it wiped every traitor from the
face of the Continent, But hear the Courier:
"This has been called a fratricidal warty
'some, by others an irrepressible conflict be
tween Freedom and Slavery. We respect
fully take issue with the authors of both
these ideas. We are not the brothers of
the Yankees, and the Slavery question is
merely the pretext, not the cause of the war.
The true irrepressible Confilot lies funda
mentally in the sacred animosity, the eternal
antarmnism, between the two races engaged.
"fhe Norman cavalier cannot brook the
vulgar familiarity of the Saxon Yankee,
while the latter is continually devising 'some
plan to bring down his aristocratic' neighbor
to his own detested level. Thus , was the
contest. waged in the old United States. So
long act Diokinson_doughfaces_were_to_be '
bought, and Cochrane cowards to be fright
ened, so long wan the Union tolerable to
Southern men; but when, owing to divisions
in our ranks, the Yankee hirelings placed
one of their own spawn over us, political
connection became unendurable, and separa
tion necessary to preserve our self-respect.
"As oar Norman. friends in England, al
ways a minority, have ruled their Saxon
countrymen is political vassalage up to the
present day, so have we, 'the slave oligarchs,'
governed the Yankees till within a 12th
month. We framed the' Constitution, for
70 years moulded the policy of the govern
ment, and placed our own men, or 'Northern
men with Southern principles,' in power.
"On the 6th of November, 1860 the Pur
itans emancipated themselves, and are now
in violent insurrection against their former
owners. This insane holiday freak will
not last long, however, for, dastards in fight,
and incapable of self- government, they will
inevitably again fall under the control of
the superior race. A 'few more Bull Run

Cu arriv ilea below here last eve

two batteries here, supported by tt force
(number unknown) of infantry.
• ( tack_was_made_at 7A. M.
to-day. The regiment under my command,
the .46th Indiana, landed two and a half
miles below the battery ; and skirmishers
were thrown out, who drove in the enemy's
pickets.. The gunboats then moved up and
opened on their battery. A rifle shot from
one of the batteries 'penetrated the steam
drum o f the - Mound City, disabling, by
scalding most of her grew.
Apprehensive that some similar accident
might happen to the other gunboats, and
thus leave my small force without their sup
port, I signalled the. gunboats . to cease firing
and we Would smith the battery. They
ceased exactly at the right moment; and my
men entlied the battery gallantly. The in
tbutry were driven from the support of the
guns, the gunners shot at their posts,and
their commanding officer, Frye, formerly of
the United Mates Navy, wounded and taken .
prisoner. Eight brass and iron guns, with
ammunition, were captured.
The enemy's loss is unknown. We have
buried 7 or 8 of their dead, and other dead
and wounded are being brought in.
The casualities among my command are
small, the Only real loss being from the es•
caping stream in the Mound City. She will

The Charleston _Mercury feared that the

of the city in consequence of the great ex=

of many,othcers. lions. Evans knd Pember
ton compliment the troops for their bravery
in standing under the shells of our gunboats
and batteries.
The fight took place within 4 miles of
Charleston, and from the tone of an editorial
of the Mercury, I should think that th e reb
els ha*e_ been 'eut'off from a retreat by our
gunboats. If this be so ! Charleston must
soon fall,

JEFF DAVIS' EARLY IllsToßY.- , --- Jelf
Davis' father lived for a number of years in
a log cabin situated ittivhat is now Fairview,
twelve milse from liclikinsville, Ky. The
house is now weatherboarded, and used as a
tavern. Old Davis was a man of bad char
acter, a horse trader and•swindler, and of
every low habit's. A finwhorse *AA .rniasing
on one ocoa•ion in the neighborhood, tinder
such ativiciotts'Oiretlmstances that he found•
it safest to leave the county immediately and
fly to Mississippi. Jeff Davis is his illegiti.
mate son, born some distance from his father's
leonse, and takbn home by him when several
years of age. These are notorious facts.
Some of Davis' relatives still live in that part
of Kentucky. We would never have allud
ed to this sinister bar on Jeff's escutcheon

NEW JERSEY ELECTION the a
preaching elections, tliere will be • put two
parties—the loyal and the disloyal. The
loyal party, which will support the adminis
tration, will be composed of the Republican
party in mass, and all others who are in fa
vor of the principles" and policy which have
governed the President so far in his success
ful career. This loyal party will unite on a
platform of principles similar• to that laid
down by the New York members, which is
one that every traly,loyal man can tsupport.
The disloyal party will call itself Democratic,
and its great leader will be Vallandigham,
and assisted by Cox, Bright, Fernando. Wood,
and men of that stripe, of whom in New
Jersey we have plenty. The result, we can
doubt, will be 'the overwhelming over
throw of the. secession sympathisers in
loyal States.—Newurk Mercury.
