J ite “New York Daily News’’ lias the
following sensible article, and for publishing
such, we ‘uppo.ie, tLat paper, ana a few oth
ers, are proaciibeil by Orund Juries, and put
doun lHub power, or something bearing
a semblance t* legal authority :
War is not merely a pecuniary calamity,
lhat it makes the rich poor and the poor
poorer—that it takes aiul starves a whole
people, is sometimes an endurable fact, it’
not au actual blessing. In war, men perish
in crowds. 1 hat whole cities are made des
olate, and “countless millions mourn,’’ are
not the strongest proofs of the evils of war.
W orse than this is the moral taint, which
follows in the train of events, such as affect
the American people now. Men are educated
the history among whose scenes they live.
Nations grow wicked as well as weak—de
graded in spirit and purpose, as well as in
purse and power, by the.carnage of war.—
iamiliarliy with the bosoiu of cannon aud
the deadly glitter of steel makes devil* of
nu n. It demoralizes the habits, the bruins,
the pursuits of a nation. It annihilates the
gaud, tbe beuutil'ul, and the true in the hu
man heart. It quenches all manly thought
all moral vipor, and pure aspiration, It de
strov’B all godlike purpose, emotion, and en
deavor. It robs human life of its sanctity.
It teaches robbery and murder and all vio
lence and crime by example. It exalts
brutal passion ; it honors brutal action ; it
smothers every Christian emotion ; it annihi
lates every act ami work of charity. The
strength ot human blood clogs and clouds
the nation s heart and brain ; the very air
grows poisonous and effete with the odor of
war; the very children inhale the contagion
1 he people ot the United States are mak
ing history in volumes daily. We live an
age in a day. M e are making a moral as
well as a political condition und destiny.—
Our revolution may not stop with broken
lines ol p tlit eal boundaries, or with changed
laws and Con.-titution. When France, in
an hour, sank from despotism to anarchy
under llobespicrre, more than the mere pil
iars of the Government were torn down.—
\\ lien Jumes of England arose a King and
aiept. an exile, lie lelc. more than a political
revolution behind. History too often forgets
to record the moral fruit of great events. —
Asa people wc now forget that the fate of
something more than Government is involv
ed in the struggle upon which the Gov
ernment has entered. We count the cost
in dollars and in lives, and overlook the
moral deteiioration of the nation, which is
the certain offspring of the work in which
we have engaged, and a calami tyuiore dire
than all others, present or to come.
V* e have put away the I>ible for the
musket, ami substituted tbe army hymn for
the psalm. The school boy leaves his slate
to parade in flaming cap and with mimic
gun. The book lies idle on tbe shelf. Har
per. and I’utnam, and Appleton sell less, be
cause the dealer in gilded buttons and mili
tary gray sells more. The pulpit drops the
Christian plea for peace, and cries for blood.
Inventions fail. Ceres languishes, and Mars
grows fat. Newspapers teem with accounts of
Held and camp—with details of Battles and
and tales of sudden death. Reason shrinks
away from its throne, while hate and passion
rule. The bookmaker starves —the gun
smith is*a god. Students walk the streets
ignored—the soldier who knows best how to
kill his brother is greeted with applause.—
Art has no friends, save the art of war. The
graves of murdered men are strewn with
flowers—the great iu moral worth and deeds
die unmourned. Demagogues throng the
halls of Congress—our statesmen are dead.
The press which pleads for peace is mobbed
—the murderer of a thousand kindred in a
day is crowned. Will not all this leave a
moral impress behind ? Are taxes and blood
the only calamities of war? Do men and
children live atnid scenes like these still un
contuininatcd and pure ? Cumulation emerge
from scenes like these as morrally great as
before ? 1 .ct us deduce fair conclusions from
known premises. War propounds these
serious questions, in spite of apologies
which circumstances may make for its exis
tence, and even when it is regarded as against
a foreign foe, and thus, possibly, as a strug
gle for Rational honor.
Official New* from Aimiacliicoln.
We are indebted to Adgt. Gen. D. P. Hol
land for the following official information
from Apalachicola ;
“The schooner New Plan w r as seized at
tbe Fast Pass, about 27 miles from Apalachi
cola, on the Night, of the 20th ult. by the
boats of the blockading fleet, and the ship
Finland taken possession of. News reaching
Apalachicola, Capt. Atkins ordered an ex
pedition of one hundred and ton men from
the Apalachicola Guards, Perry Artillery
and Beauregard Rifles, on the steamer Yovtuj
and privateer F. S. Bartow, to proceed to
recapture the ship. The enemy, perceiving
Capt. Atkins’ force, set lire to the ship, took
to their boats and made great speed to get
under the guns of the two bloc kading steam
ers lying a short distance beyond the Pass,
Capt. A. chasing their boats until the two
steamers, which were coining in under steam
and sail, made it necessary, on account of
their great superiority of force, for him to
withdraw, which he did, and returned to
The following is the official dispatch, from
Captain Atkins, of what transpired after the
Apalachicola, Aug. 28, 1865.
Col. D. I*. Holland, AJ>/,t and Inxp. Getdl:
Bjr : A messenger has just arrived, say
ing that the enemy sent two boats, as soon
as we left this morning, and has burnt out
Yent’s and other houses below Cat Point.—

Young is just starting to bring them over

We learn that the report about burning
of houses below Cat Point is contradicted.
The Case of Mrs. Greenhow. —So
thorough is the work of Government in deal
ing with rebel agents here, that the very
daughters of Mrs Greenhow are ignorant of
the disposition made of her. She is probab
ly enjoying Col. Martin Burke’s hospitality
at. Fort Lafayette. The day before her de
parture she threw a letter out of the window
to a gentleman friend, who carefully per
used and pocketed it. The sentry, not un
observant, touched the man on his shoulder
and put him under arrest. The letter con
tained treasonable matter. A prison is
fittiug up here for the reception of female
Last Hoars of lieu. Lyon—llls Pre
Ihe New \ ork Herald of the ISth, gives
the following item of intelligence from the
battle field ot Missouri:
Fur two or three days before the battle
Gen. Lyon changed much in appearance.—
Since Jt became apparent to him that he
must abandon iho Southwest or have his
army cut tu pieces, he had lost much of his
termer energy aud decision. To one ot his
staff he remarked, the evening la-fore tin 1
battle, “I am a man believin'? in presenti
ments, and ever since this night surprise was
planned, r have had a feeling I cannot get
rid of that it would result disastrously.-
Through the refusal of the government, pro
perly to reinforce me, I am obliged to aban
don the country. If I leave it “without en
gaging the enemy the public will call me a
coward. If l engage him ] may be defeated
and my command cut tu pieces, iam too
weak to hold Springfield, and yet the people
will demand that I brifig about a battle with
the very enemy 1 cannot keep a town against.
How can (Lis result otherwise than aeuiust
On the w:i3* to tlie li.-ld I frequently rotle
near him. ilc seemed like one bewildered,
:lliJ offon, ulieii iuldrosseJ, lulled to give
any recognition, and seemed totally unaware
that he was spoken to. On the battlefield
he gave his orders promptly, aud seemed
solicitous for the welfare of his men, and
utterly regardless of' his own safety. While
he was standing where bullets,flew thickest,
just alter his favorite horn* was shot, from
under him, some of his officers interposed
and begged that he would retire from the

Gen. Lyon turned to Major Sturgis, who
stood near him, aud remarked :
L fear the day is lost. If Col. Seigel had
been successful, he would have joined us be
fore this. 1 think I will lead this charge.”
Lie had been wounded in the leg in an
early part of the engagement—a flesh wound
merely—from which the blood flowed pro
fusely. Maj. Sturgis during the conversa
tion noticed blood on General Lyon’s hat,
and at first supposed lie had been touching
it with his hand, which was wet with blood
from his leg. A moment after, perceiving
that it was fresh, he removed the General’s
nut and asked the cause of its appearance.
“It is nothing Major, nothing but a wound
iu the head,” said Gen. Lyon, turning away
and mounting his horse. “ Without taking
the hat held out to him by Major Sturgis,
lie addressed the lowans he was to command
with, “Forward men ! J will lead you !”

A corresprndent of the Baltimore Ex
change writes from Norristown, Pennsylva
nia, August 2<‘>, as follows :
A great excitement exists in different
parts of Pennsylvania just now, you need
not be supprised to hear of stirring scenes
before many days. What would you think
if the State should pattern after Missouri ?
And yet I have heard Republicans and Dem
ocrats freely suggest the idea. Hitherto
democrats have furnished the majority if not
two-thirds of the volunteers. They now re
fuse, and the consequence is that soldiers are
hard to get. Officers are plenty, but men
are scarce. The reason is that the republi
can journals have taken high ground in de
nouncing Democrats and uisunionists, until
many good Union men have almost been
driven into the Secession idea.
But tlie great operating cause now is the
action of the authorities at Washington in
attempting to drive Democrats into the Re
publican ranks, under theory of “ no party.”
This will not be submitted to and in every
county where the Democrats strike for the
old Democratic doctrine, the edict has gone
forth from Washington that Democratic or
gans must be “confiscated.” Several pa
pers, 1 understand, have already been seized
by the Marshal.
The Hasten Sentinel was mobbed and

The Jeffersonian, West Chester, was also
destroyed by a secretly organized mob at
midnight on the same da}-. On the next
day I passed through, or rather into the vil
lage, and the excitement ran very high.—
This is a State camping-ground, and parts of
two companies organizing to make up a reg
iment were almost broken up by the attack
on the Jeffersonian office. Out of about 150
to 170, one Lieutenant and 50 men withdrew
their names, declaring that if such was to be
the order, the Republicans might tight their
own battles. The feeling ran so high that
an immense patrol, armed with rities and
muskets, has been kept up to prevent an at
tack upon the borough, while depositors
have withdrawn their names from the bank.
Since, I understand, the Marshal has closed
the office of the Jeffersonian, through the
country to a high fever. If this goes on,
you may take it for granted that Uncle Sam
can get no more Democratic soldiers, or in
fact any kind, for they willbe needed at
This is blind policy. The Administration
bad better not rain mischief iu Pennsylvania.
The Democrats there are Union men to a

for a restoration of peace on any terms that
will secure Union and honor to the nation.

Knowing that Good Bacon is indispensa
ble to good living, and being of those who
have but little to buy with, we cannot help
but feel personally interested, in our farmers
converting their Pigs into 200 and 300
pound hogs in double quick time. We know
j they can do this if they will but try. They
are making good crops, aud should feed well
and commence note. \\e know of some who
are said to be good farmers, who never pre
tend to raise their meat, but depend entirely
upon buying. This is not right, for every
farmer should at least raise his owu Bacou,
and they must do so if they ever expect to
live independent of the North.
We hold to the doctrine that it is the im
perative duty of every man and woman in
the Southern Confederacy, to do all that is
in their power, which will have a tendency
to bring about this desirable result. We
