Pittsburgh Presbyterian Banner (Newspaper) - January 21, 1863, Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaPresbyterian , january 21, 1863. Intr. Pittsburgh january 21, 1863. The War. The last week was not i fruitful in Field operations Battles and victories. of Gen. Rosecrans needs reinforcements. The rebel general Longstreet has been sent by Gen. Lee with thirteen brigades to supersede Gen. Bragg and interrupt Gen. Roster ads Progress if not to drive him Baek. Gen. Grant has left Holly Springs and gone to Memphis. The Advance of Gen Mcclernand and com. Porter up the Arkansas River and their capture of a Post there and the taking of 7,000 prisoners and much military stores is a Success worthy of record. Whether they will proceed up the Arkansas to Little Rock the capital of the state is a matter for conjecture. Gen. Banks and Admiral Farragut May be making great preparation on the lower Mississippi but we have no accounts yet of great deeds. We have High Hopes. We have but very Little information of Gen. Fosters expedition into North Carolina and not mob from the Iron loads which were to sustain his movements. There Are reports of a movement by the of Gen. Burnside. Any change Bioh would cause the men to lie out at night at this season would be murderous but doubtless without such exposure they could so operate As to retain Bis forces in Virginia. It must be bad management which so disposes of our that the rebels can spare thirteen brigades to leave Virginia for Tennessee and other brigades for Wilmington and Charleston. Just now the president is sorely perplexed in relation to his War measures. Clouds Darken and lower. We Pray that soon they May scatter and open up Brilliant Prospect. What Prospect of peace p there is much said just now on the subject of peace we however can perceive nothing indicative of its near approach. We have not hoped for peace except pm the result of Complete Victory Over the rebel armies and of this the indications Are very faint. It makes us sad to find that with All our superiority we yet so use our Power As to suffer Many sad reverses. Political part ism has been the main cause of our ill Success and this seems to be increasing. The government would execute the Laws against the rebellion the opposition would make concessions. Both parties still say that the Union must be preserved. In this there is some Hope but while they differ so radically As to the Means that they cannot cooperate the country is in danger of perishing. The peace projects of the conciliating party among us have found their Way to the South and a response has returned. Possibly this May help to unite the North. It must certainly tend to bring True unionists to part with their idiosyncrasies As to ways and Means and adopt a common platform. It May be useful for us to occasion Fly contemplate Southern sentiment. Jeff Avis in a speech at Raleigh n. 0., Jan. A is thus reported a a the new year he said comes in aus viciously for us. It finds us victorious at very Point and it finds our enemies begin ing to feel what we have borne patiently a like True Dunghill we hear them fall at the first touch of the Gaff. A a alluding to himself he had been chosen a position he not desire Sis he pre rred another one but he could Lay his and upon his heart and say that he had warded no Man because he was his Friend 1 withheld appointment from any Man Bebo of personal dislike. A a this cause he said is above All person or political considerations and the Man of at a time like this cannot sink such is iterations is unworthy of Power. In inclusion he said our prospects Are a hero is great contempt of the North d great Confidence in the Issue. There also a word of Wisdom. A a he had re added no Man because he was his Friend or withheld appointment from any Man cause of personal dislike. The cause is Hove All personal or political consider the Richmond dispatch of january 0th, in discussing the peace propositions f or. Brooks of new York that is a a ional convention and a Compromise Union ays a a or. Brooks appears to be in Earnest in these extravagant propositions strange As t May appear to any Man who has posses Ion of Bis senses for upon the occasion f presenting them lie made a Long speech and expressed himself confident of their uce Ess Are the Northern people All natural born fools or Are they Only stricken with that judicial madness which we Are told the gods always inflict upon the victims of their Wrath preparatory to their win ? can they suppose that the South is s galleys and Lily slivered As themselves and that they Are willing for Mere consid rations of interest to forget the unheard f outrages under which they have suffered using this War ? can they believe them Pable of so soon burying in oblivion All hat they have done and All that they have offered a a if the whole Yankee race should own in the dust to Morrow and Pray us to e their masters we would spurn them even slaves. Our Only wish is to be separated of them finally and forever a never to see e face of one of them again never to ear the voice of another Yankee on the uth Side of the Potomac or the North _ have no traffic and no Intercourse of any a sorption whatever with them. We Are Hting for separation and we will have if it Cost the life of every Man in the on federate states. A a we Are aware that Many persons be eve that the party of which Brooks and an Buren Are the representatives desire d design to restore peace and that at event they dare not speak out their real Nti ments which Are in favor of Sepa Rasen. We do not believe they Are in favor a of any such thing. They would like peace on condition of our return to the Union and they Are fools enough to believe that a majority of the people of the confederacy Are in favor of Reid Ion. They would like peace on these Tei is because it would restore the commercial supremacy of the North and especially of the City of new York which is gone forever if the Union be not restored. But they Are As bitterly opposed to separation As Lincoln himself or any of the thieves and murderers who Lead his armies. In the event of a refusal to return to the Union they would to a Man unite in hounding on the assassins who Are Deso lating our country and murdering our people As fiercely As thy have Ever been hounded on by Beecher and Hale. They look Only to their pockets when they preach of reconciliation and restoration. If the same object could be effected by entirely destroying the people of the Southern states and they thought it As easy to do they would recommend it As Thebes of All possible policy. Let them be satisfied however. President Davis expressed the sentiment of the entire confederacy in his speech the other night when he said the people would sooner unite with a nation of hyenas than with the detestable and detested Yankee nation. Anything but that. English colonization French Vassalage russian serfdom All All Are preferable to any association with the the Richmond inquirer says a they Hope still to Chain us by some specious Compromise to the Corpse of the old Union or at least to some advantage by determining Boundary Ana commercial relations it would be a Fine thing for them truly to have the South agree to meet them in a convention which should recognize the Union As unbroken and look to its perpetuation. On this head however they May As Well know the truth. On no terms whatever will the South consent to a political association with them. A a there is no Concession which they can Grant or which human imagination can Frame which could fender the idea aught but intolerable and revolting to the Southern mind. We separated from them because they sought to put on us a Brand of social and poli Tica inferiority. We would not reignite with them if they would one and All consent to occupy the same position of degradation which they aimed to rivet on us. We would not consent to hold the Northern states even As provinces. On this subject there is hardly a Ripple upon the surface of Southern sentiment. This was the feeling and the purpose fixed and unalterable of the South at a time when All was gloom and disaster when Roanoke Donelson and new Orleans had sur rendered to the foe and it seemed As if Providence had decreed to test to the uttermost the fortitude of our people. But now when heaven has vouchsafed to us so Many crowning victories when the Independence of the South is an accomplished fact and Liberty fairly won the suggestion that the Reward of All the sacrifices and sufferings of our people is to be basely discarded for a connexion with Yankees is not endurable even As a jest. A when the North wants pm she can obtain it by recognizing the Independence of the Southern states and yielding the terms which Justice demands. Her proper Mode to secure this result so desirable to her would be at once to withdraw her Armie from Southern soil and Send her commissioners to this capital. Not even to bring about an honorable peace can the South make the slightest Advance to the North. That was wisely and humanely done by the Confederate government before the War but now any step in this direction however trivial will be sure to be misinterpreted by our enemies and would Only tend to prolong the a it would be beneath the dignity of the Confederate government to take any notice of the new York meeting until the sentiment of which it is an indication shall Ripen into a sincere desire for peace and come clothed with the authority of the United states or some of the Northern states acting independently to make proposals on Abas a of Southern Independence As fact accomplished. All propositions which ignore either our established Independence or the Only channels of foreign Intercourse appointed by the Confederate Constitution can Only meet with silent a a a the Augusta ga., chronicle treats of the same topics As follows a a a we must recollect that there is yet no peace party at the North based upon the Only terms upon which we can make a peace. The so called peace party or democrats or conservatives or whatever they Call themselves have apparently no dissatisfaction of the War per see they Are Only dissatisfied with the manner in which it is carried on. Such is their profession now a they May grow in Grace until they advocate peace on our own. Terms but it requires time for such a growth and at present they Are powerless. They Are so much the More to he depended on perhaps because they Are Notin Power for the outs Are always More virtuous than theirs but it is to be feared that when they become ins their virtue will give w y before the temptation offered by the Public plunder. The republicans have reaped Rich harvests while in and it is More than can be human nature or rather from the nature of professional politicians that the outs when in will Content themselves with the scanty gleanings. If they can find any other Way to fill their pockets possibly they May propose peace upon fair terms if not the War will go on until the new set it of bloodsuckers Are satisfied. The of it. I Willii he Northern politicians is a question of Money and stealing the Augusta constitutionalism says a a it is in our opinion to our interest to hold the Mississippi River at any and All hazards president Davis has promised that it shall be done and the news from that Quarter indicates that the officers and soldiers entrusted with the defence of the Mississippi will see that the Promise of the president is Ber.

A Confederate messenger to Europe was lately captured off Charleston. He is the son of the notorious George n. Saunders of new York and was the bearer of some very important dispatches from Jeff. Davis and his Secretary of state to Mason Slidell and others in Europe. A writer from Washington says they give Many important facts and details in regard to the condition of the rebels. They also furnish the strongest statements of the desperate Straits to which the rebel leaders Are reduced and How that unless they can quickly get Relief either by european interference or by dividing the free states and thus paralysing the efforts of the government they must a give up their bad cause for lost. These dispatches arrived at Washington on tuesday. They were put up in a tin Box loaded with led at one end so As to sink quickly in in emergency. The government is strongly urged to make Public these captured dispatches and will do so As soon As certain special information contained in them is made use of.�?�. Maine and Minnesota a a. S.

The presidents message Aero Manying the $100,000,000 Bill. To the Senate and Bouse of representatives. I have signed the joint Resolution to a provide for the immediate payment of the and Navy of the United states passed by the House of representatives on the11th, and by the Senate on the 15th inst. The joint Resolution is a simple authority amounting however under existing circumstances to a direction to the Secru tary of the Treasury to make an additional Issue of one Hundred millions of dollars in United states notes if so much Money is needed for the. Payment of the and Navy. My approval is Given in order that every possible of a oilily May be afforded to the prompt discharge of All arrears of the Dnn Bur soldiers and our sailors. While giving this approval however i think it my duty to express a sincere regret that it has been found necessary to authorize so Large an. Additional Issue of United states notes when this circulation and that of the suspended Banks together become already so redundant As to increase the prices beyond the real value thereby augmenting the Cost of living to the injury of labor and the Cost of supplies to the injury of the whole country. It seems very Plain that the continued issues of the United states notes without any Check to the issues of suspended Banks and without Ade quate provisions for the raising of the Money by Loans and for tending the issues so As to keep them within due limits must soon produce disastrous consequences and this matter appears to me so important that i feel bound to Avail myself of this occasion to ask the special attention of Congress to it. That Congress has Power to regulate the currency of the country can hardly admit of a doubt and Thatje Dicion measures to prevent the deterioration of this currency by a reasonable taxation of Bank circulation or otherwise if needed seems equally Clear. Independently of this general consideration it would be unjust to the people at Large to exempt Banks enjoying the special privilege of circulation from their just proportion of the pub lie Burden. In order to raise Money by Way of Loans and most easily and cheaply it is clearly necessary to give every possible support to Public credit to that and a uniform currency in which taxes subscriptions to Loans and All other Ordinary Public dues May be paid is almost if not quite indispensable. Such a currency can be furnished by the banking associations authorized under the general of Congress As suggested in my message at the beginning of the present session. The securing of this circulation by the the pledge of United states Bonds As herein suggested would still further facilitate Loans by increasing the present and causing a future demand for such Bonds. In View of the actual financial embarrassments of the government and the greater Embarrass ments sure to come if the necessary Means of Relief be not afforded i feel that i should not perform my duty by a simple announcement of my approval of the joint Resolution which proposes Relief by increasing the circulation without expressing my Earnest desire that the measures such in substance As i have just referred to May secure the Early Sanction of Congress. By such measures in my opinion will the payment be most certainly secured not Only to the and Navy but to All honest creditors of the government and satisfactory provisions will be made for future demands on the Treasury.

Although not disposed to favor or recommend Patent medicines in Gene through distrust of their ingredients and effects i yet know of no sufficient reason Why a Man May not testify to the Benefit he believes himself to have received from any simple preparation in the Hope that he May thus contribute to the Benefit of others. I do this the More readily in regard to Hoofland a German bitters prepared by or. C. M. Jackson of this City because i was prejudiced against them for Many years under the impression that they were chiefly an alcoholic mixture. T am indebted to my Friend Robert Shoemaker esq., for the removal of this prejudice by proper tests and tor encouragement to try them when suffering Rora great and Long continued debility. The use of three bottles of these bitters at Tho beginning of the present year was followed by evident Relief and restoration to a degree of bodily and mental vigor which t had not Felt for six months before and had almost despaired of regaining.
