None of the younger states have acted u More generous part toward the unfortunate classes of their citizens the insane the deaf and dumb and the Blind than Indiana the moment they saw their Way clearly after the explosion of our unfortunate internal improvement system and elected a satisfactory arrangement with our creditors the state legislature on the recommendation of that Wisest of All her executive James Whitcomb and with the full approbation of the people made arrangements for the Erec. Tion of those splendid edifices now the Pride of every citizen for the treatment and cure of the insane and the instruction of the Blind and the deaf Aud dumb. These a institutions have done a a Noble part during the sixteen or eighteen years in which they have existed. Hundreds of jul Ortu nates who had temporarily been deprived of reason have Beon restored through the instrumentality of the insane Hospital to that priceless Boon who but for that institution would have sunk into hopeless Aud irremediable insanity to drag out a wretched existence in jails and poor houses. In the other institutions the deaf and dumb have had imparted to them the benefits of a thorough education and the id ind been instructed not Only to read and write but taught trades which have enabled them to earn their own subsistence. We think however that the most important of these institutions the Hospital for the in Aanet ought to be largely extended so As not Only to afford room for such patients As Are. Supposed to be curable but a permanent Home for All the insane of the state whose Iosa Ivity is of such a character As to Render them incapable of supporting themselves and whose friends May desire to Send them to the state Hospital or Asylum at Indianapolis. We have no statistics on which to base a statement but we pre Simie there can be 110 question that a very Large majority of the insane not in the state Hospital Are either wholly or partially supported at the expense of the people of the townships or counties in which they respectively reside. Many of the More violent Are to be found in the county jails others in the poorhouse and to others allowances for support Are made by township amp us tees. All these Are supported by the tail wipers at As we have every reason to be eve a much higher Cost than if All were gathered together under a common roof and placed under the care of experienced and careful officers Aud attendants. The Public already acknowledge it to to their duty to provide for this most unfortunate class by paying county and township taxes for that purpose. Surely the most timid legislator need not be afraid of being sustained by them merely because he void to Transfer the Burden from the county treasuries to that of the state. The aggregate of the taxes after the first Cost of erecting the necessary buildings had been deducted would be smaller under the proposed than the present system and county and township officers relieved of a duty painful and harassing in the extreme. We Hope the legislature at its approaching session will give this subject the attention which its importance demands. We Are aware that taxes Are High but we Are also sure that proper provision for the incurable insane Grill cot add to the aggregate of taxation while it will be the urea is of affording great Benefit to a most unhappy class of our fellow being who Are not responsible for their own misfortunes. There is no Community \ it would prefer being taxed to seeing the insane wandering about in their midst. Two judicial District a for la Diann. The death of judge Huntington and the discussion As to his probable successor recalls to mind the fact that Somei years ago an Effort was made by a portion of our representatives in Congress to obtain a division of Indiana into two judicial districts. A Bill for this purpose was by Hon. Daniel Macc we believe but the extent of favor with which it was received by his brother members we Are not informed. Certain it ii it did not Paiss. It was urged in favor of major Mace s proposition that other states had been similarly divided into two or Mure districts and that there was no Ood reason Why Indiana should not also be similarly favored. Ohio and Illinois have each two districts As also i ave Many other states not More populous or important than our own. In con Sci Uerice of the in hellion and questions arising out of Quot it there can be no Jucs Tiomi we presume that Tesero will be a largely increased ainu it of business for tie i in ted states District courts in the lying contiguous to the disloyal state Many such cases have already Loiue before the District court for Indiana and they will Multi idy in number till we doubt if one court will be adequate to dispose of them. There Are also numerous cases in admiralty which will come up for action before the District court Aud to try such cases one of the courts oug lit to be located conveniently for the great Steamboat interests of the state. We mention this subject now not for the purpose of specially urging action at the present session of Congress but to Call the alien icon it if members of the bar to a matter in which the have a special interest. Death of capt. Peter the death of capt. Peter Tellon Bieh much regretted event occurred on saturday it. New Albany has lost one of her oldest and most enterprising citizens. Capt t. Settled in this City in 1s17, and had consequently resided Here forty five years. He had for a Long series of years been identified with the Steamboat interests of the Ohio River and was Well known and highly esteemed at nearly every town Between Louisville and new Orleans. His death will be regarded in this City As a Public calamity. He was u Man of unwearied Enterprise until ing Industry and unswerving integrity. No discouragements or reverses were sufi Cint to Dampen his ardent temperament but in the midst of the deepest financial gloom our com Muity has Ever passed through when our mechanics were Idle because there was no labor Toper form he was Busy in the solution of projects which would bring contractors to our City for the building of their boats Aud which would develop tie ingenuity and Superior excellence of our workmen. As a citizen capt. Tellon possessed Many amiable qualities of heart and mind. He was emphatically the poor Man s Friend and Many a silent prayer has ascended above invoking blessings upon him for that Charity which he performed in secret find not for the applause of men. Capt. Tellon had reached the Ripe age of sixty five years yet his activity was such that he would not be taken for Over forty five. He has gone from us suddenly and now rests from his labors. His works of mercy will Long survive in the memory of our citizens. Army of the Cumberland. Stamp taxes. One of the most Clie ering signs of the limes is the readiness with which the stamp taxes arc paid by All a liaises of the Community. The amount of them in such a Community As this must we think considerably exc cod the estimate made of this Branch of Revenue. Paid in the form of a few cents at a time they Are not Felt at the moment As a Burden in most departments of business though the aggregate in a year May be very considerable As a percentage of the amount from each individual. This Mode of taxation is among the most judicious that can be devised. It acts upon the habits of a Large majority of men who daily spend Petty sums for superfluous or vicious gratifications and yet would be shocked if the annual total acre required in a single payment. a inquirer. We Are not disposed to Controvert the inquirer s , though it think it possible tie Law Milit in some Sci Speets be advantageously amended. I one respect it is very inconvenient and Cumuli orsome in that requiring a Dif lorent kind of stamp for every purpose for which Stamps Are required. In Small places where but Little business is transacted it will to difficult to find any one who is willing to Purchase the various kinds of Stamps and keep them on hand. Why not adopt uniform Stamps from one cent up and let that answer for every purpose whether for a Check a note a Telegram or for any other purpose 3iilitary information. The Cincinnati coup Vercial in commenting upon our notice of the reported cause of the arrest of the editor of the new Albany Ledger says our own experience has been that officers and soldiers writing from the army for the commercial have teen less prudent in disclosing the strength of brigades divisions and army corps Aud their positions than our regular correspondents who understand More clearly the Imp Ortance of concealing these matters and the Rispon Sibilio of the press in withholding them than with a few exceptions the officers Aud men it is very rare indeed that a regular correspondent who has any regard for the welfare of the army divulges information of real advantage to the enemy and we Are pleased to observe that the prejudice against them is rapid disappearing before a More intelligent comprehension of their duties and the important part they play in chronicling the operations of our armies. As a general Rule the commen ial is right. Regular correspondents do understand More fully the danger of information getting to the enemy through the papers Aud the sort Likely to be most beneficial to when will the War end democrats in the army a fortifications at Nashville murder of capt. Clarks health of the 81st Indiana the paymaster about miscellaneous items a. Pc. of the new Albany Ledger. In Camp near Nashville dec. 2. When will the War end is a question heard repeated Many times a Day in Camp and while All Are anxious for an honorable settlement of our difficulties so that they can return to the peaceful avocations of life i have never yet heard one who was in favor of compromising in any degree with rebels with forms in their hands. While their hearts yearn to see the old Homes of their childhood and once More clasp the hands of friends around the old Domestic fireside War Aye War to the bitter end Isth Feir cry rather than one Star on the glorious old Flag of the Union should be dimmed. No the Union As it was and the Constitution As it is is their motto. Yet the everlasting Quot Nigger Quot question bothers them considerably. While Natany of them with whom i have conversed did not exactly agree with president Lincoln in his emancipation proclamation yet after studying the thing Over came to the conclusion that the Only Way to end the War was to tight them in every possible manner and All Are looking anxiously Forward to the first of a january to see what effect it will have on them. On Oue question i my differ slightly with i arson Brownlow and i much Admire him in his Vecent address to the people of Tennessee. If 1 Reail aright he gives As a reason for the recent democratic triumphs in the North that a majority of the. Friends of the administration i have enlisted and gone into the army. Now As far As my observation extends and i have knocked around considerably among the troops from Ohio Indiana Kentucky and Illinois it has been the re Voi Quot Seju i have found generally a Largo majority of democrats in tho ranks and in some instances nearly whole companies who at Home when voting time come.-�, vote the straight out democratic ticket. As you Well know my predilections have never been with the party who.=>e principles you advocate but in the army although politics Are sometimes discussed there is no difference of opinion in regard to a vigorous prosecution of the War. There is but Little news circulating around Camp at present. Work on the fortifications about Nashville is being prosecuted vigorously and they begin to assume quite a formidable look and in a Short time Nashville will be proof against any attack by the rebels. Foraging parties continue to scour the country in search of provender and food for Man and beast jut As the country immediately in this Vicinity has been pretty Well cleaned out the trains have to take a More extended Range and consequently quite a Foice accompanies each team.

The country is pret much deserted and the people Are afraid of starving and beg piteously in some cases that the troops will leave them a Little As they cannot procure any More for love or Money. They Are truly in a pitiable condition but As most of them Are Sucesh with fathers or Brothers in the rebel army Hunting for their Quot rights Quot they get but Little sympathy. Lieut. Col.

Expectations which Are excited Only to be disc appointed arc better calculated to Dispirito the strongest minds than the sternest realities unrelieved ity a Ray of Hope. The Yankee politicians have contrived from the beginning alternately to elevate and depress the Southern mind l y affecting to dread foreign intervention for the South an idea which has been dispelled a every wind from the East almost As soon As it was raised. We have steadily endeavoured to put the comm nity on their guard against this delusion. In tho beginning it was reasonable to suppose that Europe and especially England have he such Manifest and powerful interests in the division of the old Union would interpose in our behalf but from the moment that the Queen Ami parliament distinctly announced their position of neutrality we have Folt satisfied that the South had nothing to Hope from that Quarter and every official development since has been such As to strengthen that conviction. That the sympathies of the British people Are with us is not More evident thai that the Poliey of their government is neither to favor the North nor the South. Since the declaration of the British Secretary of War that England will not recognize us till we Are re coi sized by the United states or till the ter posed some of styles to the Enfort in int of the conscript act.

General Banks very handsomely recon med the civil Power in new York on wednesday. Judge Mccunn served him with a writ of Hareas Corpus meeting him to procure the body of one of the soldiers of his expedition at two p. At the hour appointed Ethan Allen assistant United states District attorney appeared before the judge and made return to the writ on be Liaf of gen. Banks to the following effect first that the body of the aforesaid Soldier was then on Board the Northern Light and on its Way to the Narrows the transport having sailed from her Dock before the general was served with the writ. Second that the general himself had set sail on a the same errand with his soldiers at 1 p. Notwithstanding these obstacles to a literal compliance with the writ gen. Banks desired the judge to understand that he entertained the greatest respect for the mandates of the civil courts and would do All that Lay in his Power to obey the pro ceases emanating therefrom he would there fore direct that the soldiers alluded to be put on Shore from the Northern Light before she left the Bay and leave it to him to present himself in obedience to the writ. Judge Mccunn expressed himself satisfied with the above return to the writ and gave utterance in the most exalted terms to his High esteem and admiration of gen. Banks As a lawyer statesman Soldier civilian and gentleman. This conduct of gen. Banks a major general in the army an officer of distinction and in command of an expedition of great importance is honorable to him and in striking contrast to the conduct of some Petty lieutenant and one horse captains who take it Apon themselves to disregard the writ of Hareas Corpus and set at naught the Constitution and Laws of the land. Bad state of affairs at Neir Orleans. Hon. Reverdy Johnson has published a card in the National intelligencer stating Itiat the charges made by the new Orleans Delta and published throughout the North in regard to the treasonable appropriation of Money by the Banks of new Orleans which had been seized by gen.

The new York Tribune through vehemently contending that none or very few but republicans have gone to the War is not at All satisfied with the manner in which some soldiers acted at the recent municipal election in new y Ork. Says the Tribune in the five Points District m. T. Brennan received 629 votes Robert t. Haws 5. Out of these votes three Hundred and thirty nine were voted by affidavit made up principally of Massachusetts soldiers from the Franklin Street Barracks. This fraud seems enormous but when we Tako into consideration the fact that these votes Are in addition to the poll list of the last election increased As that was also by some one Hundred and fifty affidavit votes the fraud becomes really amazing. The sixth Ward was besieged at every election District by soldiers bearing in their hands Blank affidavits who when challenged As not being residents of the state had residences supplied by their conscience less election errs. In this manner gangs of soldiers voted from one election District to another All Day Long. The practice of voting by Blank affidavits has brought Forth its legitimate fruits. United states arc too much exhausted to carry on the War a declaration which the London times says expresses the conclusion of the British Cabinet we Are not Likely to hear much of intervention even from those who Havivi been bar King spoil it till the very word has honome disgusting.

It is one of their highest merits that they Are not soldiers from their love of War ail it carnage but from love of country. Some of the most gentle spirited Aud modest youths d the land arc among the bravest heroes of the army. They All Long for Home and its sweets.

Mcl Hurson reached Holly Springs it is the fashion in certain quarters to super Ata hat is called Quot Union sentiment Quot in the slave states. And yet in tho development of such a sentiment our Only Hope of the Triumph of our cause. No matter what the motives that brings Back the people to the shelter of the old hag no matter whether it is conviction that the rebellion can t succeed or a genuine Afi Section for the government of their fathers they must h ave the privilege of at least appearing to come Back . We May conquer their physical resistance but to can hardly conquer their dispositions. We May compel them Back into the Union As into a limbo but we can not com tel them to l e our Brethren again is their will. If we would restore tho old it Roberh Iod Well As the old i political Bonds we must show ourselves merciful As Well As Strong. We must convince tho Southern masses that we wage no vindictive War against them that we have no intention to c i Iel them into a degrading al Logian it e. We must convince them that they have Only to return to the path from which they stray Quot cd to have their Olfe cos forgiven find forgotten.

Rose crans to secure the shipments of army supplies and to prevent contraband to Ade gen. Bolo has. Ordered that the a Lupient by Adams express company be restricted to two cars and that no goods be shipped without permits from the collector of customs at this port with certified invoices and the oath prescribed by the Treasury department. Goods shipped from Points East of this place will be stopped Here until the Law is complied with. Extensive contraband Trade has been carried Over the Railroad through Adams express to the exclusion of army stores. This contraband Trade is kept up successfully and a done much to sustain the rebellion. We Are glad to learn that gen. Rosecrans and general Boyle Are taking measures to Stop the contraband Trade through Liis City and from the towns on the Ohio River. No goods will be shipped. By Railroad South except on special permits until Beer Rosecrans s army is supplied so As to to Quot. It is to be hoped that general Rosecrans will allow a few cars to the merchants at Nashville and Points on the Railroad to ship Staple goods and groceries to Supply the citizens and for family consumption this Grill prevent suffering of the people and avoid the necessity of the general commanding supplying the starving people from the army stores. We Trust Steps will be Taen to prevent army butlers and others frown the for audient shipping of Contr Abuid goods and confine tiie transportation to army supplies and Ira pues for the people a another who was at Sebasto a of says that nowhere but Here Are raw troops seen to fight with the courage and efficiency of veterans surely if any stimulus was needed to prompt towards our soldiers those deeds which an affectionate Pride inspires it is abundantly furnished in their iii it to spirit and in their preeminent Fame worthily won in tho most glorious of causes. But to the credit of the people it can be truly said that the Soldier is never Foi gotten. The Home which he loves loves him truly and dearly. There is perhaps no hour in no Day in which he is not in the thoughts of All those whom he has left behind him and whose prayers constantly ascend of his Safe return. It will be a Day of Mutual transport and Joy when tho Battles All fought and the grand Victory won the broken families shall be reunited and bask in the Sunshine of peace. May the Day soon come. Meantime let us All in Camp and in Council in Field and at fireside continue tho display of those qualities which under the Blessing of Providence have brought us safely to the present stage of the War. We quoted on yesterday the following from London paper Quot never we assert with the utmost Confidence wits there known a people so her in so Brave so prudent so devoted. Superlative Praise. We must not fall below it no a. We must not prove unworthy of it. Rather let us by new deeds of virtuous heroism and new manifestations of prudent counsels and patriotic Devotion add additional brightness to our present Fame. Let each sti mate each and All encourage All As we travel tho rough Road whose length to do not know but whose end is certain. Georgia is. Virginia. From the Rich Mil whig nov. 27. What Virtinia has suffered. The Lynchburg virginian says it is known that Georgia through her governor has irit Ai step tho restoration of the Union. 11 Legal arrests. It is not Abe Lincoln it is not Ben. Stanton it is not governor Tod who origin at political arrests. These arrests have All been brought about by the filse affidavits and Stealthy cowardly misrepresentations of Radical abolition partisans residing in tho different localities. Democrats recollect this�?7? in a a a i for inn. Whatever May to the fault of Quot those at Washington no one can shut his eyes to the conduct of those secret Midnight conspirators m our midst Whoso prejudices have Nide them amenable to the Laws and localities where they live. To permit such men to would Only be giving a Premium to others to follow in their infamy. If the archives at Washington containing these papers of perjury can Ever be got hold of there will he an exposure which will stir Lii Many a neighbourhood from its propriety. The tidy danger is that these papers will be destroyed before a Congress will meet who Mill have the Power and will to Call lor them. Let the administration be careful to preserve these papers so that the guilt May not fall upon their beads but upon the or Jared villains who led them into it by false Post.

It was the general impression among the tro ups that Thev would remain at Holly Springs for several or Liefh i Hitt would encamp at Coldwater eight bibles North if the town. Many officers of High rank were sir priced to find under Mav Ching orders the morning after they reached he now base of operations. Karly yesterday morning Gem Hamilton s Advance reached this Point and . 3lcpherson s corps marched from Lolly Springs yesterday and arrived in the afternoon. Holly Springs is 1 believe the fourth town or Quot City Quot of Mississippi in Point of wealth Aud importance. It is a very handsome place and contains Many Lino residences and Public . Its citizens arc rebellious to a unit and they have shown their Faith by their Avoris to such an extent that Tipiere is Scart Ely an Able bodied Man loft in the town a they have All joined the Confederate army.

I Lic first company of soldiers raised in Mississippi for the advocacy of rights was composed of the Young l Loci b of Lolly Springs and the town nov claims 10 have ii larger quota of troops in the Field than any other in the state. The Magnolia House the principal hotel of the Plai 1-�?was the headquarter of generals Price and a an Dorn for three months during the of cup alion of Coldwater by the rebels.

A the situation. I ii Simiu tuii in department has at last a Suu de a Little interest and importance. The opposing armies Are within seven Miles of Eracli Oiher Aud it May now be said with some degree of Quot reason that a Battle is ii imminent. Two w Ings of ii. army Are encamped at Lumpkin s Mills South of Lolly Springs and seven Miles North of Talla Hatchie Rivici. The right Wing under gen. Sherman has advanced from Memphis Aud is within supporting a Isiacc. A important question which now pics its itself is v will the rebels stand a Light Quot it is the opinion of some that they will not make a stand this Side of a in Alison and i iii ii this opinion is Well Quot founded. Reports of the rebel strength sue of course Mere matters of speculation. 1 think it to it is a fair estimate of the Force / now at Talla Hatchie. Our cavalry advanced within three quarters of a mile of the Relief position and were Funi shed with abundant evidence that Van Dorn is Well supplied with artillery. They were fired at from one fort with a two Twenty four pouu4 guns and were compelled Quot to Quot retire the across the Talla Hatchie Sis burned Liy tho rebels on the night of the 29th, to Provost our . Negroes who were employed on tho rebel Forti Micati ins describe the Earth works a very Strong Aud tha artillery very heavy numbering six or eight guns which can readily he brought to Bear upon our forces in their Atto supt to Cross the River. A late Issue of the a Renada apr real which i saw yesterday says Quot Prico is stated to be seven Miles below Holly Springs entrenched at Davis Bridge on the Talla Hatchie. If the Railroad is impasse Fie a Battle will to postponed until firant can move trains Aud artillery. They think Bragg will attack giant Quot a rear that Rosecrans Caius of Cuoio to his assistance in time Aud that another Force of ours will attack Rosecrans rear if he follows Bragg. I it a a Price s troops Are represented in tine spirits. Should the rebels deem it Wise to contest our of the Talla Hatchie there will 1 0 a Batth within a week. Gen. Irant will not Advance i Roku Bis present position ii iii the Railroad is completed to Lolly Springs Aud his troops Are supplied with provisions. Tho Point which Van Dorn has selected will necessarily make the Battle one in which artillery will Tako the principal part. Infantry Aud cavalry can do very Little until the rebels Are driven from their first line of defense. A very heavy rain which fell last night will i fear Liao a bad effect in swelling the Talla Hatchie to an in Fordable depth and hooding a swam which we will have to go through to get to the Battle Field. The weather is any tiling but agreeable cold and Chilly very suggestive m fever and ague and less desirable than the rigorous Winter of the Korth.
