Revert of the IiTCiiatinB Commillre on the JBarpcr'a Ferry nrrender. The report of tbe committee appointed to investigate the surrender 'of Harper's Ferry, gives a brief narrative of events at or near Harper's Ferry, the object being to show that its relief was possible previous to the surrender, and that the garrison if prop: erly commanded, could have held oat loDger. In that event, it maintains, Dearly thirty-five thousand of the enemy would have been prevented from joining Lee at Antielatn ; while the nation would have been saved the bitter mortification of losing the services of orer ten thousand men paroled, all of whom hare not this day been exchanged. The censures, which are administered to all tho parties concerned, excepting General "White, are in brief as follows : 1st. To Major Band, of the 126tb New York regiment, for bad conduct in action, he being held responsible for tha "disgraceful behavior" of the regiment after the wounding of Colonel Sherrill. 2d. To Colonel Ford for not managing properly the force (though inefficient) that was given him ; defending weakly the point most exposed to the enemy, leaving the 126th New York regiment without a competent officer after its colonel's fall, and m a word, for prematurely abandoning his position, which was found next day to be unoccupied. "It is clear to tbe commission that Col. Ford should not have been placed in command on Maryland heights ; that he conducted the defences without ability, and abandoned his position without sufficient cause." Hence he is pronounced to be disqualified for further command iu the service. 3d. To Colonel Miles, whose case, it is alleged, has been carefully" investigated and tenderly dealt with. Yet the fact that he has met his death on the field at the enemy's hands must not screen him from the vedict, based upon nine hundred pages of testimony, which is "strangely unanimous." The language made use of respecting this officer is certainly not lacking in strength as is evidenced by the phrases "disgracefully surrendered," ""'Colonel Miles's incapacity, amounting almost to imbecility," "his criminal neglect" to say the least," &c. The Commission find 'nm guilty of disobeying General Wool's orders to fortify Maryland Heights ; of placing Colonel Ford n command with a feeble force ; of refusing tho latter means of fortifying ; of giving him a discretionary power to abandon the position ; of paroling rebel prisoners, who were permitted to see his camp, and were then sent to the enemy's headquarters as if to report our weakness. That the opportunity was improved is evident from the return of Lieutenant Bouse, who had been paroled, at the head of his men, next day into Harper's Ferry. 4th. Through Colonel Miles, censure is administered to Major-General Wool for placing the former in command of such an important position. To this extent General Wool is "pronounced guilty of a grave disaster, anl should be censured for his conduct." 5th. General McClellan comes in for his share of blame, in that "he marched only six miles per day on an average, when in pursuit ot the enemy through Western Maryland ; and in that he failed to relieve and protect Harper's Ferry in time. Had the Jflace held out only one day longer, though at the oss of a thousand men, the enemy might finally have been driven off. and the arrival of reinforcements which saved Lee at Antietaiu might have been prevented. "Had the garrison been slower to surrender, or the army of the Potomac been swifter to march, the enemy would have been forced to raise the siege, or would have been taken in detail with the Potomac dividing his forces." Correspondence of the Tribune. OH THE K1GIIT FKOXT, KEAB APHBY'8 GAP, VA., ) Tuesday, Kov. 4, 1862. J When the army started, a general high in authority objected to any mention of it through the press. The movement was to be "rapid and important." Publication would forewarn the enemy. As usual, the telegraphie censors refused to pass dispatches concerning it to the New York journals. As usual, too, Baltimore and Washington papers, issued under the very eye of the Lrovernment, within a few hours of the enemy's lines, were permitted to publish min ute details. The "importance" of the movement the future will determine. lis "rapidity" is such that on the ninth day r.fcer crossing the Potomac our infantry advance "is at Ashby's Gap. This pass through the Blue Ridge is SO miles south of Harper's Ferry (our Starting point) and 20 north of Manassas Gap. We shall shortly change our base of supplies to that line. Already we are a3 really in the enemy's country as we could bo in Mississippi or South Carolina. Our troops, fresh from the warm welcome they enjoyed in Maryland, see this contrast, and spoil the Egyptians accordingly. Their drafts upon the orchards, hen-roosts, corn-cribs and fence-rails, which soldiers never spare, are astonishingly heavy. I think if Pharaoh had seen his homestead passed over by a hungry hostile army, he would have let the people go. I have not heard a single white Virginian, male or feteale, profess loyalty, since we left the Potomac. Wherever private property is taken for the army the owner, if loyal, ft furnished with a receipt entitling him to payment ; if disloyal, he has no redress. Under this pressure nvany profess a sort of loyal neu trality or neutral loyalty ; but I have met no uncon ditional Unionists. The women and children, as usual, tell the truth without disguise. At Woodgrove, the other night, a young woman, who said she professed to be a Christian of the Baptist mode, declared 6he had no aspirations for heaven if any Yankees were there. Sha would willingly lay down her life for the cause. She would be proud to kiss the dirtiest and raggedest soldier in the rebel armv. "Have you seen any rebel pickets this morning ?" another was asked at Uppervule yesterday, bhe replied, with intense in donation, "Why do you call them rebels'?" "As you please, madam ; what do you call them ?" call them Southern heroe3. sir !" The slaves come into our lines, act as guides, and give whatever information they can. ''Which side are you on, boys V asked Gen. Gorman of a large party standing on tho roadside to see the column pass. "The Union, sir, of course," responded half a dozen voices. "IJo you want to carry informa tion to the rebels V inquired an ofheer of another, who asked a pass to go home, outside of our lines "Not I. We are no friends to them. Your army is all our hope, sir." "Well, uncle" (to the gray- naired patriarch who tottered around to tho farm house gate with my horse this morning), "are you a rebel, like everybody else here?" "No, sir; what should I be a rebel for 1 I should have gone to you all before, but a good many colored people who did were brought back when Harper's Ferry was taken, and are worse off than if they had staid at home. So I'm just watching and waiting." Even tho old negro, almost "ready to tumble into the grave could not repress his aspiration for liberty. There are four millions of his race' to day, whose condition he exactly describes, who with him are "watching and waiting." I have never yet encountered one, however ignorant and degraded, who failed to manifest an interest in the war who did not recognize our troops as friends. Oar army has moved southward on three parallel roads. Joe Paesons of Baltimore. -Joe enlisted in the 1st Maryland regiment, and was plainly a "rough," originally. As we passed along the hall we first saw him, crouched near an open window, lustily singing "I'm a bold soldier boy ;" and observing the broad bandage over his eyes, 1 said, "What's your name, my good fellow 1" "Joe, sir," ho answered, "Joe Parsons." "And what is the matter with you V "Blind, sir blind as a bat." "In battle V "Yes at Antietam. Both eyes shot out at one chip." Poor Joo was in the front, at Antietam Creek ; and a Minie ball had passed directly through his eyes, crossed his face, destroying his sight forever. He was as happy as a lark 1 "It is dreadful," I said. "I'm Tery thankful I'm alive, sir. It might have been worse, yer see," he continued. And then he told us his story. "I was hit," he said, "and it knocked me down. I lay there all night, and next day the fight was renewed. I could not Btand the pain, yer see, but the balls was flyin' all round, and I wanted to get away. I couldn't see nothin', though. So I waited, and listened ; and at last I heard a feller groanin' beyond me. 'Hello !' says I. 'Hello yourself,' says he Who be yer V says I 'a rebel V 'You're a Yankee,' says he. 'So I am says I ; 'what's the matter with you?' 'My leg's smashed says he. 'Can't yer walkl Ko. 'Can yer see?' 'Yes.' 'Well say I, 'you re & d d rebel, but will you do me a liltte TJ 'I will,' says he, ef I ken.' Then I says, 'Well, ole butternut, I can't see noihin'. My eyes is knocked out ; but I ken walk. Come over yere. Let's git out o' this. You p'int the way, an' I'll tote yer off the field, on my back.' 'Bully for you !' says he. And so we managed to git together. We shook hands on it. I took a wink outen his canteen and he got on to my shoulders. I did the walkin for both, an he did the navigatin'. An' ef he didn't make me carry him straight into a rebel colonel's tent, a mile away, I m a liar I Hows'ever, the colonel came np, an' says he, 'Whar d'yer come from? who be yer V I told him. He said I was done for and couldn't do no more shoot'n ; an' he sent me over to our lines. So, after three days, I came down her with the wounded boys, where we're doin' pretty well, all things considered." "But you will never see the light again, my poor iciiow, x suggested sympathetically. That s so," he answered glibly ; "but I can't help it, you notice. I did mv dootv crnt shot rnn in thn eye an' that is my misfort'n, not my fault-las the old man said of the blind hoss. But--Im bold soldier boy,"' he continued, cheerily renewing bos song; and we left him in his singular merriment.

Mr. Van Bur en's Programme. At the Democratic jubilee held in New York on Monday night, no inconsiderable amount of latent disloyalty was warmed into life. The recent elections have called from retirement a number of desperate political adventurers who turn fondly to the tricks and games which they learned years ago when floating on the tide of power. Mr. Van Buren, on his own responsibility, puts forth a programme for closing the war. It involves the subversion of the Constitution, the deposition of Mr. Lincoln, and a hunt after the Union through the labyrinthine mazes of anarchy and chaos. lie i thinks the President should declare an armistice, so that the people of the South can elect representatives to the Federal Congress. As the Southern members had no cause for leaving, they would, of course, accept the first invitation to return. Once re-established in their old seats, two-thirds of the number could call a convention to amend the Constitution. " Such a convention would restore the unity of the thirty-four States." Mr. Van Buren continued : " He would alter the tenure of the Presidential office, making the President elected for six years, and not eligible for re-election. Applause, j xne convention could continue iu office the present President, or could say that another one should be elected. Applause The people of the South would no doubt want anew election. For himself, he concurred in that desire." Knrli etnff frnm the mouth of a common dema gogue would have no weight whatever. But Mr, Van Buren is an acknowledged leader. He was the chief orator of the successful party during the in the State of New York. As such, his words will have an influence a most per. nicious influence over the minds of the great masses of the democracy who look to the oracles of the party for the responses which at once constitute their creed and their chart.- Looking to this pro gramme, his deluded followers will learn to regard an armistice as alone necessary to peace and reun ion. They will withdraw all sympathy from the men who' "both at home and in the field" are heroically meeting sacrifices and dangers to secure the only honorable peace. Besides, Mr. VanBurcn's premises rest on conjec ture, and are utterly baseless. The rebels have as sured the world, over and over' again, that they would tolerate no thought of reconstruction on any terms They would spurn the offer of a convention with con tempt. Advances from the loyal States pointing to ultimate re-union, would be met with scorn. The experiment of an armistice would surely end in speedy recognition of Southern independence. No sane man doubts the fact. The unseemly boldness of Mr. Van Buren and his satellites, is a warning to Mr. Lincoln to use the ut most vigor in the prosecution of the war. The opposition to the Government i3 every day assuming a more tangible form, and expressing itself in louder clamors. One voice alone can drown disaffection, and that is the loud mouthed voice of cannon proclaiming victory. Let us have a repetition of the glorious tidings of last spring, and the Government need fear nothing from the machinations of domestic enemies. From Kichmond. News from Richmond is of an important charac ter and is dated up to the 8th inst. v The Merrimac No. 2 is complete!, and nov lies below Forf Darling ready for mischief at the mouth of the James river. Officers in the rebel service have been detached by the Richmond War Department to carry on a contra band trade for their Government between Baltimore and Richmond. Fifteen hundred pounds of quinine, one hundred pounds of fulminating powder, and two million percussion caps, lately run the blockade of the Potomac in possession of some of these parties. The Richmond Whig makes a powerful appeal for shoes for the rebel army. It says : "It is terrible to think that hundreds, nay thou sands of our brave troops, our sons and brothers and fnciws, who are sutlervng that wo ma be comlorta-ble, are in this bitter weather without the comforts of negroes, of paupers, or even of convict3 in the Penitentiary are literally barefooted in the snow. Shame, shame on those who have failed to prevent this, and on those who now permit it. Better that the President, with his Cabinet, his Quartermaster-General and all their aids, should walk these icy streets with naked feet till spring, than that our noble army should be in the condition in which this blast of winter finds them. Tho Government is cruelly, criminally culpable in this matter ; but there is something more important and pressing for the people now to do than sit in judgment on delinquent officials, and that is, to do what they can to supply the neglects of their public agents. This is no false alarm no sensation paragraph. The condition of the army is heart-rending. The people must come to the rescue. Men who have fought and suffered as they have done must not be neglected by those who stay at home to make money and keep snuir and warm. The Government cannot bo trusted. It has no forethought, or is entirely indifferent to the conditioE of thonien who are perilling and enduring everything that the country may be rescued and made free. Let each citizen resolve tho moment he rends this to furnish one or more pairs of shoes, or, if they cannot he had, somethiug else that will servo to shield a soldier from suffering." Visit to the Fourteenth Kegimentj C. T. Ex-Lieiit.-Governor Douglass, Dr. Nye, and George S. nubbard, Esq., returned to Middletown Saturday evening, having visited the 14th Regiment and the army of the Potomac. The Constitution publishes a very interesting account of the trip, writ ten by Mr. Douglass. The party arrived at Harper's Ferry on the afternoon of the 1st inst., when they learned that tfie ,14th Connecticut had gone forward, leaving the sick and disabled at the Ferry. They found them mostly comfortable, and in a fair way of recovery. On tie morning of the 2d, unable to obtain a conveyance, they started on foot, in pursuit of the 14th. They found the roads filled with army wagons, batteries of artillery, and troops, all pushing on as rapidly as possible. They continued on their weary march, until at 8 p. m. they arrived at S nickers ville, having come up with the army, and having travelled a distance of 30 miles. They found the Deonle on the way were all secessionists, unwilling to sell a mouthful of food to any one, consequently, with the exception of a little bread from an army wagon, they were hungry as well as weary. He describes tho sight, as they came in view.of the camp fires of the army, as one of great splendor. They found the 14th, and of course were received with every demonstration of joy. The regiment had marched fifteen miles that day, besides having been up on tho Blue Ridge some five miles on skirmishing duty. The party followed the regiment on their march during the 3d, arriving at Ashby's Gap at 4 p. m., where the army were drawn up into line of battle, but did not have tho pleasure of witnessing a fight. The morn ing of tho 4th, Mr. Douglass and his party bid the friends of tho regiment farewell, and retraced their steps toward home, most fully satisfied with their visit. The 14th had not as yet received their cloth ing, for which they have patiently waited for seven or eight weeks, but it was within 15 miles of them, and "would soon reach them. Col. Morris is sick, and obliged to stay back. Lieut.-Col. Perkins is in command of the 14th though himself unfit, from his feeble health, to do the duties ho is compelled to. He is most indefatig able in attending to the wants of his men, as is also Major Clark, and Chaplain Stevens, all 'kind and, excellent men, and the brave men under their com mand must never be forgotten for the noble, uncom plaining self-sacrifices they are making for the cause of our bleeding country. New Books. George W. Childs. of Philadel. phia, has just issued a duodecimo book of 358 pages, called the biege of Richmond," being an account of McClellan's operations in the months of May arid June 1862.' It is clearly and simply written; de- uws ine cautes and the nnal retreat. It is friendly to McClellan in its tone, but aims at general fairness to every one. Written by a man who accompanied the army pen in hand, jotting down from day to'day what occurred, it is as near the truth as we are likely to get. It must prove a very valuable book. It is by Joel Cook, who was sent out by Forney to correspond with hispaet KJ- An error discovered in the first count of votes elects A. II.

The body of a respectable woman named Corne lia Anderson, of nartford, was found under the barn of Charles Hastings, a few rods north of the ferry in Rocky Hill, on Monday morning last. It is sup posed she died on the Friday night previous, as she was seen not far from that place at an early hour on that evening. Her relatives say she was subject to fits. Verdict of the jury, "Death from exposure and exhaustion."' While the ship Lafayette of New Haven, was load ing in New York, a short time since, an offer of $50,-000 was made for her, which wa3 refused by the own. ers. She soon after sailed, and was captured and de stroyed bv the nirate Semmes. As there was no war 1 risk upon her, of course she is a total loss to the owners. Policeman Stnart of New Haven, was run over and seriously injured, Monday evening, by a carriage driven at a rapid rate. The trial of the Winsted water works, on Monday, was satisfactory in every respect, and witnessed with approval by several insurance officers and other gentlemen from Hartford. Streams of water, of almost any number or size, can bj? thrown to bight of 75 feet enough to drown afcf building on fire, and to supply water for all purposes needed to every fam ily. Mr. Nelson Cheney was found dead in the kitchen of Mr. Samuel Anderson of Manchester, Monday morning. He resided half a mile from Mr. Anderson's, and passing ' the house he went in, when no nn( was in tho kitchen, and died suddenly. He was about fifty years of age, and leaves a family. John Ilines was run against and instantly killed by the np train on the Naugatuck railroad last Sat- urdav evening, a short distance above v aterbnry. Ilines was known to be intoxicated during the afternoon : and from his manners at the time the acci dent occurred, it is supposed that he had not then got over it. The Button manufactory owned by the estate of Festus Hayden, and occupied by GodJard Brothers in Waterbury, was destroyed by fire on Monday night. Loss estimated at 56,000 fully insured. Chaplain II.

The Constituti'jn savs that David Northam, of Company C, 24th Regiment, accidentally shot him self Mondav evening. He was on a visit at bis home in Cobalt, Middle naddam, and placed a loaded pistol in his coat pocket, when it went off, and the ball passed into the upper part of his arm near the shoulder. The wound is not a dangerous one. Schooner II. MiJd'eton was seized at Mystic, 6th inst., by order of tbe Collector of the district of Stonington, for failing to comply with the revenue laws. On Thursdav night of last week Mr. Alexander Palmer, of Stonington, heard a noise in his barn and on going to feed his horse in the morning found that the animal with a harness had been stolen. Upon examining the premises there appeared to hare been two thieves, who had stolen a wagon and harness from the stable of Thomas Norman, hitched up, an started off in a westerly direction. Peter Crandall, a lad about nine year3 of age, fell from a tree in Stonington, and broke his neck. He died almost instantly.

They en list in the old regiments, and come hero expecting to get their money as soon as they have been examined by the surgeon. They are examined and passed and then they are told they roust wait a little while, Well, they wait. Meantime their families are need ing the money. By-and-by they get a furlough to go home for three days and see about it. When thev get there they learn that they must have a certificate ancfthey must occupy several days more in getting this and sending it on. Others learning this carry certificate with them. But now the mode of procur ing the bounty is changed. They must wait until rolls are sent on to Hartford to the Adjutant Gener al. All this takes time, and a great deal of time too I know of the wife of one of our recruits being turn' cd from her boarding place while her husband was waiting for his bounty. Is not there some way by which the men can be paid their bounties more promptly ? I wish you would speak about it in vour paper. q. e. s. A Noble Gift. Archibald Babcock, Esq., late of Charlestown, Mass., donates by his will six thousand dollars to the town of Ashford, Conn. Three thousand dollars is for the purpose of organizing or employing a band of music to play on public occa sions, free to all the inhabitants of the town. The re mainder constitutes a fund for a town library, the in terest to be applied yearly, for fifteen years, for the purchase of books only. In time, this will make a splendid, library for a country town. Steps have already been taken towards the organization of a brass band, to be called the "Babcock Band." Westford, Nov. 11th. s.

Verily the Insurance Companies are on the mfiv uotisciulk s Concert. lhe long promised concert of Gottschalk came off last evening at Touro Hall. The audience was an extremely full and fash- ionable one, every seat being occupied. He was as- sisted by Mile. Carlotta Patti, and Messrs. Wander, Jantz, and Behrens, each of whom came in for a full share of the applause" which was freely and bountions-ly bestowed. Of Gottschalk we have absolutely nothing to sav Ilis plaving fairly bewilders one. Flash after flash come tho bewitching notes from the piano till the room seems filled with harmony, and the walls echo the sounds. Under his 'hands the piano fairly sings ; his trills remind one of tbe forests in spring full of tho feathered tribe in full voice. In fact he exhausts the dazzling qualities of the instru ment. Tho " Cradle Song" should be learned by every performer of the piano its soothing qualities being particularly remarkable on many of the audi ence. Every piece of bis was encored, and he obligingly gave the " Last Hope," " Shower of Pearls," and the " Cardinal of Venice." Miss Carlotta Patti was in full voice, and often as wo have heard this charming singer we never listened to her with half tho pleasure we experienced last evening Her voice, always rich, has greatly increased in strength and sweetness, and was last night remark able in the nightingale and laughing song. Mr, Jantz was loudly applauded, but would not give a repetition of his solo, Infelice." Mr. Wander also received his share. Mr. Behrens performance with Mr. Gotschalk in the four-handed piece, " Ojos Cnollas (the gem of the evening) was very credit able to that gentleman, and the honors were divided By all odds this was the best and most successful concert given for some length of time in this city, and we think might bo repeated.

Gentlemen I was exceed ingly mortified and astonished to find in your issue this morning an article charging me with sellingliquor on Sunday evening to a youth 16 years of age, and that he appeared at the Tolice Court on Monday in a pitiable state of intoxication. The statement, gentlemen, is entirely without founda tion in fact, as I was at the time confined to my bed with a violent attack of inflammatory rheumatism My wife and several other persons boarding with me were in the house the whole evening' and no person of the description mentioned in your paper came on the premises; consequently he must have obtained it else where. Persons familiar with my character iu this city, and the class of "House of Entertainment" I keep, are fully aware that to encourage drunkenness in youth is no part 01 my business or inclination. v Tours, very respectfully, Thomas Bishop. tt According to reliable statements, the rebel Gen.

For the Courant. Soldiers' Grave.- The desire to bring home from long distances the remains of deceased friends is, by some persons, regarded as evidence of a morbid sensibility, or at best an unreasonable expenditure. Others cherish that desire aa a dictate of true love, and in strict conformity with christian culture. There may be instances where a removal would be inexpedient or improper, but I can hardly describe the sensation of relief to my agonized feelings when I learned that a beloved and only son, who had fallen in battle, was so buried by his comrades that his remains could bo perfectly identified and removed. And although the journey to obtain those remains was attended with 'toil and sorrow, I thank God the object is accomplished. His grave is now with us, it can be planted with flowers, visited often by friends, moistened with their tears, and the dumb marble will warn his former as sociates to be also ready. ever before have I so fully sympathized with Ja- cob of old, who, when about to die in lugypt, charged his sons to "bury him with his fathers, in the cave that is in the field of Ephron, in the land of Canaan.' , . -r,i -.,,-acQ1 fV,n camo Hnciro an1 ftrnV on nnth I (J yOt ILI bAUlVJOVU HIV DU1UV ww 11 Vi m.iv& uM wwu . .' -,, of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry np my bones from hence It may benefit some who are personally concerned in this subject to be informed that metalic coffins are not needed for the safe and comfortable removal of the remains of the dead.
