One of the results of Copperhead doc trines, teachings and Intentions manifest a ilself yesterday in ihe examination of Mrs. Ellen McCaBertv, before United Slates Commissioner P.- on of resisting an enrolling officer in the discharge of his sworn duiv. The accused a native of the Emerald lale, but for a number of years past has resided tn this city. Shei s the wife of Patrick McCaSertv, nieht watchman for C. IL McCormick Co. It appears from the evidence, that three or four davs ago, Joel Lull, Enrolling Officer under lhe Conscription Ac% for the Seventh AVard, in the course of his duly, callet at the house where the JlcCaffenv's'live, on the comer of Polt and Halsied streets, ani not Sliding the man at home, sought from the wife the facts he desired to nmke his reeon complete, Instead ot answering the verv reasonable inquiries of the polite official, Mrs. McCafferty seized a bootjack and threatened to brain Mr. Lull on the spot, if he did not clear himself ont of the house." The officer, not desiring auy trouble, left, intending to call ueatu, when hfc hoped to find the man at home.- Accordingly, on Thursday, he again went to tbe ho use, and llrs. were heard approaching, and thev left precipitately. Stocks was a courageous and brave man and he had made himself feared bv these cowardly wretches, who, it is supposed, are every one deserters from the 123th Illinois. He had been preitv severe on some of them for abuse and insults they had given his family in. lib absence, and fnrunmwcifDuYwhip-ping three old men, last fall, two of whom were Ids relations. These old and Williams, were witnesses against tbe K. G. C. at tbe time of the expose last fall, when Allen and Duff were arrested, and some ol this same gang got them out from their bouses, on the pretest of wanting them for witnesses, and takine them to tbe woods stripped them to the skin and whipped them in a most brutal manner. Stocks had reprimanded them for this brutality, "and for this, and the otber fact, that he was a Union'man, they killed him. Ou the same night of Stocks' death, another good Union man, John Emerson, died in tbe same neighborhood, from wounds received three diys before, while out in the woods hunting his cattle. Eleven halls en-ifcrea uis one killed This is not the work of a single nor is it the result of a neighborhood Gangs of men, ten or fifteen strong, patro the Diuntry for the purpose of shootmgdown from behind trees and fences everr man who is known to be uncompromistnely for the Government; and so the matter rests. jSear-Iv all of these desperadoes belonged to the 123th Illinois, and when they deserted, which they basely did almost in k body, they took tbetr blankets, uniforms and guns with them. Tbe county, we are told, is supplied with Government blankets, and when they go. on tbeir murderous expeditions, thev put on their United States uoiforms and carry with them their stolen muskets and stolen ammunition. What shall be done with these men is the great question. They are as hostile as they can be to the Government, and they mean to give it, and those who adhere tn it" all tbe trouble they can. They do not hesitate to shoot men down in cold blood. Thev nut inn depends. He was warring upon the nulitniy, andtbisgave the military con-stituticn jurisdiction tu lay hands upon him. If Jlr, V. was not damaging the military power of the counliv, then his arrest was made on a fact which I would be glad to correct on reasonable and evidence. I understand the meeting adup-ted resolutions in fkvor of the P oppression of the rebellion by military force and bv ar-mits. Long experience has shown that armies cannot be mnintflined nnless desertion shall he punished hv the stvere ol death. The case requires, and the law "and the Uonsiliutiton sanction this, punisbmcnt. ilust I shoot a simple-minded soldier boy who detens, while I mnss not touch a hair of a wily agitator who Induces Mm to desert? This is none the less injurious when effected by getting a fatber, or brother, or friend into a public "meeting, and there working upon his feelings til] he is persnaded to write the soldier bov that he is in a bad cause, and fora weak, administration, of a contemptible Government, too weak to arrest and punish him If be shall j think that, in such a case, to silence the the bovis not only constitutional, but, withal, a great merer. After reviewing the suspension of the So-leas Jar-fciorL the President says: "And ret, laj me sav tbat, in my own dis-cietion, I do not know whether I wonld have Ordered the arrest of Vallandigham. While t cannot shift the responsibility from myself. hold that, as a general rule, the commander in the field U the better jurlse of the ae-cessitv in particular case. Of course I must practice a general directory and revi power in the matter. resolutions expresses the opinion of tbe meelins that arbitrary arrests will have the effect to divide and distract those" who should be united in suppressing the rebellion, and I am specifically called on to discharge Mr. Tal nndigham. I regard this act as at least a fair appeal to me on the expediency of exercising a constitutional power which I think exists. In responce to such appeal I have to say that it gave meereat pain when I eric snefimaCECr, In ai the Sec-Sec, s'.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
