Pittsburgh Presbyterian Banner (Newspaper) - February 11, 1863, Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaPresbyterian , february 11, 1863. Raimar. Pittsburgh february 11, 1863the War. We Are still not permitted to give glowing accounts great successes. Things look not quite so discouraging As they some weeks ago but there Are no prospects speedy peace. Party politicians Are waging their strikes while their country suffers and her life is endangered. One the most gloomy things is that a portion the press which had Long had great influence is now trying to prepare the Peoples minds for disunion if the enemy shall not he conquered in three months 1 we have not the slightest Hope conquering the enemy in three months nor in three times three if our divisions among ourselves Are to continue. If it were possible to construct a truly National platform Broad enough for All and if All should adopt it and cooperate heartily then might nine months bring peace to the land. Is this possible there Are some compromises which we would make compromises with those who equally with ourselves Are honest and True friends the Union and willing to maintain it at All hazards. With rebels in we would think it a sin to Compromise while there is any ground Hope that the Eon try is Able to enforce its Laws. And Here our Hope is firm. We want victories. They Are a great want. But How shall a divided people obtain them ? cordial cooperation would bring victories. But even the very fact a completely United North would do More to make the South Lay Down their than would several victories. The expectation a divided North encouraged them to resort to and the fact a divided North has sustained them and still cheers them. The Rebes last week an attack with 4,000 men by Gen. Forrest fort Donelson. It was a decided failure. They were driven Back with severe loss. Gen. Rosecrans is still at Murfreesboro. He is receiving reinforcements and sup Gen. Grants supposed now to number near 80,000 men is the right Bank the River opposite viols Borg. The water runs through the canal which was enl to t summer but does not enlarge it As was anticipated it is out through a Tough club Clay it s said that general Grant has ordered the digging a new canal Large enough to pass steamboats. One his boats ran past Vicksburg receiving shots from All the batteries but suffering no serious injury. Gen. Banks makes no military Progress. He has neither men nor War vessels enough to attack port Hudson. The rebel general Magruder has driven our men from the month the Sabine and captured a Large amount military stores operations along the Carolina and Georgia coast Are still undeveloped. One our Iron loads the Montauk has had an engagement several hours with fort Mcalister. Her Hull and Turret were struck a number times without sustaining any injury. She is probably experimenting. Gen. Foster with a Large land Force has arrived at port Royal. This would indicate that Savannah Charleston is to be assailed. On the 31st december Commodore Ingraham the rebel Navy a sortie with two ironclads and three Ordinary steamers upon our blockading Fleet off Charleston. The rebel dispatches make it to he a wondrous affairs two our gunboats sunk one crippled four set fire and All driven away and the blockade raised. Returned from the Enterprise they took the British and French consuls Board a Steamer and carried them out some distance and no blockades could be seen. Gen. Beauregard and Commodore Ingraham then issued a Pron uni amen to that the blockade was raised. The news was telegraphed to Richmond and printed. Papers were sent immediately to Fredericksburg and passed Over to our lines. The tidings quickly flew to Newyork and a Steamer just then starting for Europe has the intelligence Over the Ocean. It is to work its influence there for several Days before the other Side the Story can be told. A As we write Only the first , the rebels own is before is. From this so As details Are give there is room for great doubt As to the real facts the attack was after the setting the Moon and before Day Light a foggy morning. The rebel captains think that two vessels were sunk amp a. The fog prevented our vessels not Only from seeing the enemy approaching but from seeing each other and hearing the firing they would prudently retire a Little distance for More sea room and to await the Light. The fog continued All morning and hence the British and French consuls could see no Block aders. In the afternoon the fog having raised the dispatches acknowledge that four the blockading vessel herein sight and the next morning there were Twenty. The matter May hence be not very Large though mischief May he done in Europe i by the report. It is also mortifying i though Small. One great Benefit we Antie i i Patel it will incite our Navy officers Anc i hasten the fall Charleston. A statements since received from our own v officers say that none our vessels was Kujik one was injured slightly and an other very severely. From thirty to fort men were killed and wounded. Our Iron Clad the new Ironsides has joined the i blockading Squadron. The fanatical abolitionists the North third the extreme Southern sympathisers the North. The first class Are for disunion absolutely the second and third for Union conditionally otherwise Dis upon though their conditions Are not the same neither do they propose the same division lines. We shall direct a few thoughts to new England a part the country which one class the Dis unionists speak rejecting. New England has a population approaching three millions and Only about a Quarter a million less than the whole free population the seven Cotton and Gulf states the people new England derive a Large part their food and nearly All the materials they use in their factories from the states South and West them. Previously to the War they consumed Over 600,000 Bales Cotton a year and about $10,000,000 sugar and molasses mostly from the South. They buy about 8,000,000 bushels beat and about 25,000,000 pounds Wool produced in the United states. They Purchase from Pennsylvania about 200,000 tons Iron and 1,000,000 tons Coal. Add to these the hemp Rice tobacco turpentine and other productions the Industry the other states and then Tell their importance to the Union simply As a Market. _ add also their mechanical and manufacturing and commercial Enterprise cheapening to us most the comforts life and giving us much our importance the seas. Then their literature their professional men and their teachers &e., &a., which they furnish have a value not easily estimated. And another vastly important thought is that if Cut from the Union they would join the British provinces. They could then obtain thence their wheat Iron Coal and All needed agricultural products. Sugar and molasses they could have from the West indies. Wool and hemp they could obtain from abroad. And farther what a powerful rival would we have setup our Jorder. We t in enemy perhaps. How completely would we be in England a Power. To attempt to alienate new England and sever her from the Union would show about As Little Wisdom As has been exhibited in Southern secessionists. We cannot afford to part with any portion our country. A the whole country must be retained one and indivisible. The soldiers Book this is a pocket diary for accounts and memoranda got up by d. Appleton amp co., new York for the Benefit the soldiers. It is admirably adapted to their use and would be a cheap and valuable present it is sold by r. S. Davis Wood Street Pittsburgh. Dividing the have three Pla ales Dis unionists first the secessionists the South second Neial vetos. Force to attain them it enacts that every male Able bodied citizen the United states Between the Ages eighteen and forty five shall constitute part t he National forces and shall be liable to perform military service when called upon by the president. A Long list follows the classes persons exempt from this requirement including in addition to the Ordinary exempts those who Are the sole support the infirm aged helpless the Only brother Young orphan children and like cases As under the French conscription Law. The third Section divides the National forces not now in service into two classes Viz first those Between eighteen and thirty and the unmarried above that age and second All others. Those the second class Are not to be called into service until the first Are exhausted. For convenience enrolment and apprehension deserters the United states is divided into districts answering to congressional districts in the states and territories. The president is to designate districts where the state has neglected to do so. A Provost marshal is to be appointed for each District with the rank Captain cavalry subject to the orders the Provost marshal general a Board enrolment for each District consisting the Provost marshal and two others one whom shall be a surgeon to Divide into sub districts convenient size to appoint an enrolling officer for each before March 10th, who shall by april report All persons so enrolled to be subject to a Call for two years after july 18th, to serve during three years the War and to be the same footing with volunteers. When it is necessary to Call out the National Force the president is to assign to each District the number required who with sixty per cent additional shall thereupon be drafted. The president is to assign the drafted men to such corps regiments As the exigencies the Bervice May require. The Bill goes at length into details touching the duties and penalties connected with enrolment and detection. The Bill has been a Long time the subject consultation find discussion among the Republic 1 cans and will doubtless be put through by nearly a strictly party vote. Amendments will perhaps be moved providing a for the government procuring substitutes after the French fashion,.when drafted men Are willing to for them. A Quot a another important Bill introduced by . Sumner to Day provides for the enrolment fable bodied Blacks Between the Ages 18 and 45 who have been freed by an Congress the proclamation the president by the commanding officer the. Department within which they shall be found. They Are to be organized armed equipped and mustered into the service for the War. Their is to be seven dollars per month half to be paid at the end each month and half at the end their term service. Privates Are also to be entitled their discharge to ten acres confiscated land and commissioned officers to Twenty five acres. Such land to be occupied As a Homestead by the receiver and his family. Another Section authorizes the voluntary enlistment free Blacks Between the Ages 18 and 4i> the same As White volunteers.

There were no raptures religious enthusiasm to Mark any period her history but there was Beautiful manifestation the spirit the gospel in her daily walk in her estimation a profession religion meant something More than a Mere momentary testimony for Christ before Tho world special occasions. Trivial causes not prevent her from occupying her place in the House god and wailing upon the Public Means Grace. She belonged to that class hearers whose intelligent appreciation divine truth often beams Forth in the very expression the face the inspiration which in the utterance the gospel message the minister feels and understands so Well. When health was vigorous and when the prospects Long life were Bright she loved the name and the House and the service and the people god. And hence when sickness oame and disease permitted her no longer to go beyond the Little Home Circle husband and Hildron the word god with All its precious promises was the food her soul in the House her pilgrimage. At an Early period her sickness she gave no All Hope recovery and committed herself anew into the hands her covenant god As calmly and As Trust fully As though Bhe knew that her Sun was about to Sot at Noonday. Thenceforward such a Beautiful manifestation . A child a Trust in a Loving.
