And honest Reasoner is denounced by the Man i which the deceased was struck with a knife and the party who have Long since decided to read and investigate Only one Side of the question. It is strange that the god Given faculty of reason should be thus perverted and the wilfully Blind permitted to Lead others into errors which have deceived and disappointed themselves. To assert that Dalton has not been capture that Butler has not taken fort Darling or that Grant May not take Richmond is immediately a construed to mean that we do not wish such 1 results to take place. The bigot who will Only j Looka tand listen to one Side of any question whatever i s always found to be unreliable. We look at both sides not through any sympathy j for the rebellion a which deserves none but 1 through sympathy for perverted common sense.

Prevent false impressions. Bat the bigots who has pre determined to believe nothing More nor less than that Grant has actually taken Richmond ignores the right use of reason and condemns every one who does not endorse his predetermined views. Now this is treating the Public wrongfully and shamefully. They want the facts and they should get the a acts nothing Raore or less. To a a Issue to them from publishers generally. F from the Baltimore american. Col. A John Symington. The final separation from us of a faithful and meritorious officer whose whole life has been passed in the Public service demands More notice than the Mere announcement of his decease. We therefore present a Brief summary of the nyl itary life of colonel John Symington of the ordnance department who died at his brother a House in Harford county md., on the 4th of april 1864. Colonel Symington was born in Delaware in 1790 he entered the military Academy from Maryland in islet and in 1816 be was appointed lieutenant of artillery. In the following a he was transferred As lieutenant in the a dance department then just created As a separate corps and All his subsequent life was passed in the performance of the duties of that department in almost every part of the country his recognized ability having caused him to of retained in these duties when at the reduce 1 f Ion of the army in 1821, the ordnance detriment was merged in the artillery. During a part of the period of that Union of the two corps he was employed As instructor of ordnance in the artillery school of practice at fort Monroe and was afterwards placed in command of the Arsenal at Washington. It was at this time that measures were taken to adapt to our service the new systems of Field siege and Garrison 1 artillery then lately adopted in France and lieutenant Symington ably exercised the la let orious task of preparing the models of the new system the forms of which have Leen unhappily made too familiar to our Eye during the past three years. It May be worthy of remark Here that the first gun carriages of the new Garrison artillery constructed under Lieut. Symington a direction were aeon. To fori Moultrie sooth i Arlinn Tobe mounted there us ring the nullification disturbances. When the it ordnance department was recognized in 1832, lieutenant Symington was appointed a Captain in the new corps in which after a service of thirty years he attained the rank of Solo al. During nit that time he was constantly employed in the command of the principal ordnance establishment and was member of the ordnance Board in the construction and improvement of arsenals Anil armoires and in perfecting the armament and equipment of troops anti forts. The armory at harpers ferry Lecei edits principal imp it it a a ments under his superintendence. The arsenals at Washington st. Louis Pittsburgh and Watervliet All exhibited evidences of the Industry Anil intelligence which he always brought to the performance of his duties. Colonel Symington a excellent qualities As an officer procured for Ahlm the highest esteem of his professional comrades whilst his amiable disposition and upright character gained their warm regard and affection As a Friend. In All the places where he has been stationed willing testimony to his Good qualities will he borne by All Elas Aea of persons who were in any manner associated with him and is residence among them will be remembered to it oth for his own Sake and for that of his amiable family who were always ready to Aid him in the exer i Vise of the Liberal hospitality for which hic House was noted. N. B. Byway of addenda to the above deserted tribute to an honorable and honoured officer i May add that ool. Syx Kington was in. Command at a Degl Eny Arsenal for six years whore he al l Long be remembered by All under his command for his efficiency or Bilty and gentlemanly deportment toward All with whom he had official Intercourse. But he did not a yes rape calumny quot and As he was not a Man who could test under reproach however unjust he demanded a court of inquiry. Which w accorded and his Disatio w in since that verdict hj8 enemies lie been silenced and shamed. Col. Symonton was a Brave efficient and e of the a ill a Lech Vious to the cutting during which Sims was knocked Down and Cayen by two men. He afterwards saw an open knife m the hand of a Young Man who was pointed out to him As Sims. Gustavus a Alvin testified that he was on Federal Street on the evening of the murder and witnessed the cutting.

A messenger in route to Kirby Smith s army was captured with a dispatch from general Lee to adjutant general Cooper saying that general Grants army had been repulsed and driven Back towards Washingtonii general Slocum a orders have produced great consternation among the traders and speculators. Stores have been closed Commerce with the enemy st pm ted and Many corrupting practices corrected. Lale advices from Alexandria la., indicate that general a. J. Smith will be compelled to March Overland to the Mississippi River lighting his Way a out. It is reported that generals Forrest and noddy with 10,000 rebels were threatening Huntsville and Decatur Alabama on last saturday. Gen.

It commenced on saturday morning and raged All Day wit i great fury. Both armies Lay upon their arms that night until Daybreak the next morning when Gen. Sherman renewed the attack the fighting continued All Day every Inch of ground being thoroughly and bravely contested on both sides. Night closed upon the bloody scene. Our loss in the two Days fighting is about three thousand in killed and wounded. The enemy s loss will undoubtedly he much less As he fought behind his works while steer Many a forces were engaged much of the time during the two Days in storming the rebel works. Gen.

Or. Dawson of pa., offered a Resolution to the effect that As it had been declared by Congress in 1861, that the War was quot not conducted for the purposes of subjugation or Conquest but to restore the supremacy of the cons Titu Sion and the Union therefore it is highly proper that in the hour of on Triumph and exultation of Victory we should tender the Olive Branch of peace As an Exchange Lor the sword Aud that the president he requested to make a proclamation of amnesty to any state which should Lay Down its arms and withdraw from the rebellion with a Guy Rante that such state should be left to reorganize and determine its own institutions without dictation or interference from the government of the i filed states.
