The question then arhes "what caused the war T -Ilartford Times. "This war which is now going on in the land was brought on by fillibustering, cheating and fraud, and nothing else. If it hadn't been for Southern Democrats bolting from the National Convention at Charleston, we shouldn't have had any war ! Swindling brought on the war, and the tame spirit is being manifested here to-night." John Roper, in Democratic Caucus, at Touro Hall, Feb. 1 2th, 1 804. Ncirtca sad car Kicopcd Priitnert. In the recent escape of f sderal prisoners from Richmond, some of Cpt. Phelps, party and others were pursued by the enemy, who fired upon them. While kaeping out of sight of the whites, they all unhesitatingly trusted the black, and ware not in a single in. stance betrsyed. Tbo officers ia tedVance on the banks of the Chkkahomiay disclosed their true character to the negroes and asked for food. As soon as the slaves learned the principal f-tcts,. they formed into squads and searched the woods, carrying provisions to the fugitives and aiding them in whatever way they could. From the beginning of the war deserters from Davis' array, escaped prisoners, and refugees from rebel tyranny, have bocn housed and fed by the negroes locateJ along the lines of travel. The enemy attempted to stop the practice by sending spies in the garb of fugitives, to supplicate the aid of suspected slaves. Wherever assistance was bestowed, the victim of the plot was cruelly punished, and then sent to distant parts. Through fear of treachery tho negroes have latterly bocDmo cautious in responding to the requests of travelers. But in the cae of the escaped prisoners, knowing that there was no deceit, they yielded heartily to their native instincts. What disposition would the pro-slavery democrats of the North make of these noble and generous-hearted colored men 1 They say that the negro is only fit for servitude, and that if he escapes from his taskmasters, he should bo remanded to bonds. But such acts as those recounted above, plead to the nation, trumpet-tongued, in behalf of this down trodden race. Desperation of tub Rebels. Among the most extraordinary things brought to light by the Invasion of Florida, is a document, emanating from the commissiariat department of Quincy, Florida, in which there is startling evidence to be fjund of the desperate condition of the enemy. Beef and bacon are entirely exhausted throughout the South, and from all quarters cries ara arising for relief, from Florida. This circular was intended only for private circulation among "the prudent people of the South." The circular contains extracts from official letters, which it says "do but partially represent the condition of the armies of Generals Bragg and Beauregard, and their gloomy prospects for future supplies." Mai. J. F. Camming, who supplies Gen. Bragg' s army, writes : ' It is absolutely and vitally important that all the cattla that can possibly be brought here shall be brought as promptly as possible." And again, on the 5th of October, he says : "I cannot too strongly urge upon you the necessity' of sending forward cattle promptly. It appears that all other resources are exhausted, and that we are now dependent upon your State (Florida) for beef for the very large array of Gen. Bragg. I know you will leave no stone unturned ; and I must say that we are now dependent on your exertions, so far as beef is concerned. In regard to bacon, the stock is about exhausted hence beef is our only hope. I know the prospect is very discouraging." And on October 20, he wrote : "Tha army is to-day on half rations of beef, and I fear in a few days will have nothing but bread to eat. This is truly a dirk hour with ui, and I cannot see what is to be done." Major Locke, chief commissary of Georgia, wrote : "I pray you, Major, to put every agency in motion that you caa to send cattle, without a moment's delay, toward the Georgia borders. The troops in Charleston are in great extremity. We look alone to you for cattle. Those in Georgia are exhausted." Major Guerin, chief commissary of South Carolina, wrote : "We are almost entirely dependent on Florida, and it is of the 6nt importance at this time that the troops hers should be sustained." Again h says : "As it is, onr situatiou Is full of danger from want of meat, and extraordinary eBorta are reqmred to pre Teat disaster." And on Oct. 9, he says : "We have now 40,030 troops and laborers to subsist. The supply of bacon on hand in the city is 30,000 pounds, and the cattle furnished by tha State is not one-tenth of what is required. My anxieties and apprehensions, as you may suppose, are greatly excited." Ma). Millen, of Savannah, on Oct. 19, says : "I assure you, Major, that the stock of bacon and beef for the armies of the confederate States is now exhausted, and we must depend entirely upon what we may gather weekly. Starvation stares the army ia the face ! The handwriting ia on the wall." Congress has adopted a resolution to reject every proposition of peace from the rebels even though they lay down their arms and adhere to the Constitution in every respect. Times. Will the Times give us the wording of the resolution passed by Congress which declines peace whenever the rebels lay down their arms, and adhere to the Constitution ? Oy- Mr. Brooks, of the New York Egress, in his speech in the House, on Friday, against the bill establishing a Bureau of Emancipation, declared that the abolition of slavery was an'accomplished fact, re cognized by this government and by that at Rich" mond, and that hereafter he will act as if abolition were established, and he would give the administration till next September to end this war. Granting means for that purpose, he would stop the discussion of theoretical schemes, and act oo practical facts. He said he should offer a substitute for the bill, recommending that a system be organized for the protection of negroes without taxing the treasury. It is understood that Mr. Cox is preparing an elaborate speech, in which he will declare tor abolition and free negroes. C Nows from New Orleans to the 9th, by the steamer Havana, reports that on the Sunday pre-ons, General Dick Taylor attacked our troops stationed opposite Natchez, and was repulsed with considerable loss, and driven six miles. The attack was renewed the next morning, when the rebels were unsuccessful, being repulsed with loss. Their force numbered three thousand. General Grover has scoured the country with his cavalry in the neighborhood of Madisonville, across Lake Tontchartrain, broken np conscript camps within a circle of fifty or sixty miles, and captured several of the enemy. A -large quantity of beef-cattle, shoe.p and horses, have been brought in. Cy A Washington dispatch says the last trustworthy intelligence fixes the pirate Alabama at the dock at Amoyon the 17th of Jaauary. The United States steamer Wyoming, Capt. McDongal, was also there, and the United States ship Jamestown was daily expected. The navy department feels confident that the Alabama will never leave port, and it is not impossible that she will be destroyed at that place. rp- A dispatch from Hilton Head the 16th says a reconooissance in force was lately made by Briga dier General Terry, toward John's Island, lying between Folly and James Islands, with narrow salt water creeks intervening. It resulted in the capture of a rebel battery of field-pieces, with their caissons, ammunition, etc., as well as the gunners serving. Our loss was five killed and wounded. . Oy The Times U greatly troubled at the idea of Florida coming back into the Union, and appears to consider it an awful crime for Union soldiers to ren der any aid to loyal men of that State, to restore the State to loyalty. The idea of Florida, being permitted to vote for any man but Jeff. Davis, greatly annoys the copperheads. rjy-The London rime, i, of opimoa tw Mn Seward does not seriously intend to claim indemnity for the Union losses sustained by the ravages of the Alabama, but then what does the opinjon 0f the London TJmet amount to fr Gen.

Transportation will be afforded for both tha 6th and 7th to Port Royal at the same time. State Items. G. H.

The Norwich Bulletin states that Mrs. Jane Hub bard, a resident of Hardscrabble (Norwich) died on Thursday morning, under circumstances which lea her fiiends to suppose she might have been poisoned Ic aDnears that earlv Wednesday mornine Mrs. Hub bard was taken suddenly ill, and her friends tele graphed to Westerly for one Dr. 1 nomas, an inoian doctor, to visit her.

Her hnsband, a miserable drunken fallow, was beastly drunk during her ill ness, and lay on the bed on which bis wife lay, perfectly unconscious of the events which were transpir ing. A jury of inquest was summoned, and they directed that a post mortem examination be bad. which was to have been made on Saturday. Dr Thomas, referred to above, was summoned before the jury, but his statements were so vague that little could be learned from him. The case has ex cited considerable interest in the community. The Uxiox Convention. Messrs. Editors : I congratulate you upon the loyal spirit and general harmony of our late convention, and especially on the enthusiasm with which our State and National nominations were made. It is rarely that so large Indy of men are able to come together and transact. in a single day, so much important business, without meeting more jarring elements. In the debate on the resolution to elect delegates to the National Convention by Congressional districts, which was the plan adopted, and which I certainly approve," there was an earnestness in the manner of most of the speakers, which has led some men to impute personal motives to one or more of them. My friend, the Hon. D. P. Tyler, it has been said, was a candidate for delegate, and advocated Mr. Rice's amendment to Mr. Babcock's resolution, in expectation of bis appointment if the amendment should prevail. Now I happen to know that Mr. Tyler was prompted by his own conscientious convictions in the course he took, and that if he bad been elected a delegate, he would have declined the office. The services which Mr. Tyler has rendered the good cause cf the country for very many years, and especially his recent labors in New York State, entitled him to the thanks of every loyal heart. He is a geat favorite with every audience that he addresses, and is solicited on every hand to engagements more numerous than any one man can fill, for the reason that he is a close student of history, as well as of human nature, and an able debater, and I trust that the time is not far distant when he will receive the meed cf appreciation to which he is entitled by his merits and long and steadfast devotion to the cause of truth and patriotism. A Late Delegate. New Britain and Berlin Railroad. Differences of opinion, says the Times, as to land damages arising from the building of this road (now in progress) have led to the appointment of the following named gentlemen as appraisers : Laren P. Waldo, of this city ; Charles Forbes, of East Ilartf jrd ; and Simon B. Kendall, of Suffiald. These gentle men were engaged on Friday and Saturday in viewing the land, in New Britain, of Henry Whiting, Mrs. Amelia Andrews, and Walter Woodruff; and on the same business in Berlin. Work on the road is vigorously going on under the direction of Con tractor Griffin, of Middletown, who, with a gang of men and horses, is now making a deep cut a couple of miles east of New Britain. The road will be finished in a few months, and the cars running. "The Life of Ocr Lord," by the Rev. S. J. Andrews of this city, published by Scribner of New York, has already, we are glad to see, passed into a second edition, both in this country and in England, confirming the judgment we have before passed upon its merits.

Rebel Perplexities The Chicago Tribune thus happily catalogues the many and various dilemmas of the rebels : I. If they increase their army they caunot feed it. 2. Unless they increase their army they are whipped. 3. Unless the press speaks out their liberties are gone. 4. If the press speaks out their government will be gone. 5. Unless they draft the whole population they must surrender. 6. If they draft the whole population they must starve. 7. Unless they recover East Tennessee they can get no saltpetre. 8.

Several hundred copies of the President's amnesty proclamation have been sent into Lee's army within a week past. The effect is already perceptible in the increased numbers of deserters.

Their Reception Home I We desire to say to the soldiers of the Tenth regiment who arrived here Saturday, and to their friends t .r,m that the reason the city authorities of Hart ford did not take any part in the reception, was because they have no sympathy for men who wear the uniform of a Union soldier. Five regiments or vet erans have been received in this city within the past two months, and the Democratic members of the eity government have looked on the passing processions, and heard the words of welcome which have escaped the lips of Union citizens, with icy indifference, and have refused to manifest in any way the slightest re gard for the brave men whose noble deeds should, at Ieast.eatitle them to respect. Even the bouttiera reoei, with bayonet in hand, and bound by an oath that he will prove faithful to tne conieaeracy, nas a uu bears that which teaches him to admire his enemy who meets him courageously; but the Northern copperhead shrinks back at the sight cf the govern ment soldier, and thinks if be should recognize mm with kind words and acts, he might possibly be supposed to bs an "abolitionist," no longer entitled to the respect of those whose chieftain is "waiting and watchiag across the border." The late Adjutant General cf Connecticut, (Jos. D. Williams, Esq ,) writing less than one year ago, said : "No regiment in the field has seen more ac- 4ive service, better sustained the reputation cf Con necticut troops, or met with greater loss of officers in action than the Tenth." It left Hartford for Annapolis, Md., Oct. 31, 1861, and was attached to General Burnside's expedition. It was afterward brigaded under General Foster, and subsequently un der General Stevenson, doing duty in North and South Carolina. The regiment has never met u-ith a repulse I It has fought gallantly m the battles of Roanoke Island, Newbern, Kinston, Whitehall, Goldsboro, and at Forts Wagner and Gregg, besides participating in a large number of skirmishes. The first colonel of the regiment was Charles L. Russell, of Derby, who was killed at Roanoke Island. Lieut. Col. Albert W. Drake of South Windsor, succeeded to the command, but, after the battle at Newbern, was frustrated by sickness, and came home to die. Lieut. Col. Ira W. Pettibone was then appointed colonel, but soon resigned, ne was succeded by Col. John L. Otis, of Manchester, who is now in command. The regiment, numbering two hundred and seventy-five re-enlistment, under command of Major Edwin S. Greeley, arrived here Saturday at 9:15 a. m. The notice of their arrival was brief, but notwithstanding a large crowd congregated at the depot to welcome them. The city military were promptly on hand, and the line was formed on High street as follows : Col. George S. Burnham, Aid. Marshal. Aid. Lieut. J. S. Ives. Lt. Col. D. A. Rood. Battalion Ivalid Corps, Major George A. Washburn. First Company Governor's Foot Guard, Msjor L. E. Hunt. Hartford City Guard, Captain' Jonn K. Williams. Veterans of the Tenth Regiment, Major E. S. Greeley. The procession then marched np High to Church street ; up Church to Main ; down Main to the Stone Bridge ; and countermarched up Main to Central Row ; down Central Row to Market street ; np Market to City Hall. The hall was decorated with flags in a tasteful manner, and seven long tables were spread with an inviting collation. The gallery was filled with la dies. When the soldiers bad all secured their places by the tables, Colonel Ueorge S. Burnham intro duced Rev. Mr. Calkins, who addressed the veterans substantially as follows Officers and Soldiers of the Tenth Regiment, and fellow citizens of Connecticut arid the United States: 1 have the honor, by the kind invitation of the com mittee appointed to receive you, to offer yon a sin gle word, for I know that you have before you i welcome so much warmer than can be tendered here, mat tne Drieiest word will be acceptable. I know that in the Roman Republic, when sol diers returned from the scene of their conflicts, the multitude thronged to do them honor, and from win dows and Housetops, as tne triumphant procession marched, led in front by the Roman Senate and citizens, followed by the captives of war, and lastly by the veterans who had won the victory, the populace manifested their joy in loud huzzas and other signs of earnest welcome. But, soldiers, you have marched through our streets to-day with nobler tread than did ever the warriors of ancient Rome, fjr your tri- HTnpIiB hovA hpnn BAntari with the blood of hprnps who fought to preserve the integrity of our .National Union against the wicked efforts of domestic foes, lt was recorded in Rome that celebrations should be given to only those who fought in defense of the Republic ; but you have done more than this you have been fighting worse than foreign foes an enemy whose flag is polluted with the stain of oaths falsely given, with treason, and fraud. Every Roman triumph decreed every captive human being to bondage ; but your triumphs strike off the shackles of oppression, and give freedom to the enslaved. You have now come home to share for a brief time its comforts, and we bid you a hearty welcome. We remember yon as you went away from us, with full ranks and stout hearts ; we remember that then many despaired of the Republic, but that yon had firm faith in the success of your cause ; we remember you at Roanoke.Island, at Kinston, and in other noted battles and engagements where you have reflected honor upon yourselves and upon your State and nation ; we remember also, with sorrowing hearts, your lamented dead, Russell, Drake, and others, whose lives have been freely offered up that the Nation might live ; we remember all your noble deeds and sacrifices, and will never forget them until memory shall be dead in the grave. Your triumph of re-enlistment is one of your greatest triumphs. You have seen many hard fought battles, and know what the Repulic is worth. I never had such pride in humanity as I have experienced since these veteran regiments have come home to us, after re-enlisting for the war. God bless you, soldiers, for your courage, and devotion to the old flag in so doing ! God bless you, I say, and may He in his Divine goodness, make you welcome to the homes you will soon seek the sweetest and most precions earthly hands and hearts can give, and when you have passed through these enjoyment, among those most loved by you, and return to the mutual scenes of the field and camp, may you soon come back to us to celebrate your final triumph over rebellion crushed, final peace restored, and Freedom and Liberty everywhere prevailing throughout the length and breadth of the Nation. ('Loud applause. ) Following these remarks, Rev. Mr. Leek asked Divine blessing, and Colonel Burnham then stepped forward and said : Soldiers : You have been so used to the double-quick, that you have taken us by the rapidity of your movements in reaching here ; but we have prepared a repast for you, to which you are now invited, and assure you tbat, though you come to the ice-bound North, our hearts are none the less warm with gratitude toward you. Boys, take hold. Cheers. And tho boys "took hold " without manifesting the slightest embarrassment. After they had finished their repast, their chaplain, Rev. Henry Clay Trumbull, stepped upon the plat-farm to obtain a chair, and was immediately cheered by the veterans in a manner which testified their love for him. They insisted upon his making a speech, and he was compelled to. After refering to the gal. lantry and heroism of the Tenth, which, he said, was "proper that he should speak of to their faces, as he had spoken the same often behind their backs," he said : " You are home again, but with depleted ranks. Nearly forty of your officers and six hundred of the brave men who went out with you are no longer with us." ' 5 And again : "When at Whitehall, men were wanted to swim the river through ice, to fell trees, and lay a bridge, that our f jrces might cross and dislodge tho sharpshooters and artillerists, who were sweeping down soldiers by the score,' from your ranks there sprang forth heroes to face the murderous fire of the enemy and accomplish the dangerous mission : and every .1 . . . - uuo oi loose volunteers is nere to day. lAppIause.J When men were needed to act with the navy in an attactouiort bumter to go on a mission that promised almost certain death and a non-commis- sionea omeer was called for to lead, he stepped forward from the Tenth, and his comrades rallied around nim. lhat non-commissioned officer and the brave soiaiers wno volunteered with him, are hre to-day, every man. Cheers. The speech (which we are obliged to condense) of tae cnapiain was heartily applauded throughout : and we heard many a bronzed-faced soldier eay, after he bad concluded, " We foi'e that man I" The members of the regiment have recently presented him with a handsome sword, sash and belt. The men were farloughed during the day, and nearly all left for their homes on the afternoon trains. They are a splendid body of soldiers, and received compliments from many sources, for their true manly bearing. Since the veterans came away from St. Augustine, Fla ,the remainder of the regiment, numbering about three hundred, have been ordered for duty along the line of the St. John river, in connection with the recent expedition 'operating under Gen. Gillmore. Bocsit OfiDKB Lost J. W. Hyde, of Co. H, 10th C. V, who lives in Colchester, lost his pocket-book, containing his bounty order for $300, on Saturday.

As Mr. Eaton was counsel for the partis who caused the letter to bo written, at the time of their trial, the "insinuation" the JVmesJspeaks of has probably caused it to fear that he might have penned the insulting epistle.

Melville Fay are to give an exhibition of startling and wonderful spiritual manifestations at Touro Hall on Wednesday evening. The press in various cities, speak very highly of Mr. and Mrs. Fay's exhibition, pronouncing it most wonderful and extraordinary in its nature. Mr. Fay possesses a re- markable power, and shows to his audience real, tan- gible evidence to that effect. He has given private exhibitions in this city, to the satisfaction of all present, many of whom have not the slightest faith in spirit manifestations, but are obliged to admit that the performance was almost miraculous. Those who had never seen such manifestations before were much astonished guitars, dinner bells and other instru ments floating about the room, and at the same time making lively music. There will be great curiosity to witness the physical manifestations by Mr. Fay, and Touro Hall will probably be crowded. American Scndat School Union. A union meeting was held in the Center Church last evening, in behalf of the American Sunday School Union Rev. Mr. Burtis, secretary of the society, delivered an address. He said he should only make a statement cf the work done during the past year, with a few facts and incidents. In the main, the society has prospered ; its contnbutions nave increased to an encouraging extent. Every missionary field that was occupied one year ago, is occupied now, and no missionary, in any field of labor, has been removed for want of support. Many new fields, in yanous States of the Union, have been occupied. He found that the object of the society and its character, were not properly understood in many quarters. The American Sunday School Union is everybody's Union, and belongs to no particular sect or persuasion. Five different denominations of tbe church are renresented in its management, and no sectional creed can, in any possible manner, find its way into the publications issued, ine dooxs pub lished are all Union in spirit. The book department does not ask for any contnbutions. lhat is supported by itself books are issued from the press, and a price asked and obtained for them. What is wanted is contributions for the missionary department. It is the only missionary society in the coun try, which has for its special mission the reaching of the children in the land, i ne ssunaay ocnooi, upon the Union basis, is the best instrumentality that can be used for the dispensation of gospel truths, and to bring the people of the nation into christian fellowship. He referred to the communities in the States cf New York, New Jersey, Rhode Islaad, Maine, and elsewhere, which were greatly in need of the influence of christian teachings. One of tbe missionaries in Rhode Island wrote that, in one district where a Sabbath School had been organized, it had bjn clesed through the efforts of one man, who appeared and said that an old law, unrepealed, of tte State, provided that if a single citizen objected to tbe use of a school hocse for religious purposes, it could no longer be used, and be did object, -which put a stop to further operation. In that community, thirty-seven families were found who never at tend church, and made oo more of Snnday than any other day of the week. In another neighborhood, there were but five stores, and every one of them sold spiritcus liquors, and the families who resided thereabouts did not know what a Sabbath School was. Ho had seen a map of several counties m Fennsyl- vama, which were reporteu as couwmus nuuio towns without any church, and no gospel truths tanCrht From Western Virginia, a missionary write, and that the are in that section, entire counties hp th(, ia nei,her . chnrch or a Sunday School Thnr in nn inntromontalitv which can better reach these bf nigbted regions tban upon tne pmu -uupu hv thi American Sunday School Lmoa. - "f'&'S.I S.hrfb ed 0'r a chnrch ia operation. Since tbat time ne has organized twentv Sabbath Schools, and gather- ed in them fifteen hundred children.

They will not read our bibles, or our books, if we send them. The only method by which they can be reached is to erect m tneir miasi that institution which is dear to every one of us the Sabbath School. There is not a neighborhood but what such an influence would rapidly affect, and. aside from the untold benefits which would be derived, the plan commends itself in being the cheapest tbat can be devised. He gave his experience in Western New lorfc last summer, in tbat part oi tne otare anowu m mo "John Brown Tract," where scarcely a missionary had ever been. Along the lines of that tract, where he visited, there was not a single church, nor bad there ever been. A missionary had gone in there, and in a short time had established fifteen Sabbath Schools, and it was his pleasure to attend a mass meeting of the scholars. The children were poor their parents were poor and had lived in absolute heathenish darkness, lie asked tne cnuuren 10 raise their hands, all who had ever attended Sabbath School De,ore tn missionary irom me f l""a" k i I.J"' Z" i T".M tt in th rmwd Kriril UUUU1VU Lwr U IUU 0 1 & W " " " ""w an old gray haired man, who was talking most of the time, and crying out "Amen." Going to him, he took him by the hand and asked wnat ne was sheding tears for, as he began to cry. His reply was that he never expected to live to see tne aay wucn such a gathering would be made. Pointing to a seat he said there were his grand-children, ana ne diosscu God that they were to be brought up under the right influence. During all his life, he said, he had never seen a minister of the gospel there, nor had one ever entered his house. Tbe Sunday School gives access to parents when we cannot gain access to them in any other way. A gentleman going from New York to Boston, on one of the Sound stoamers, met a gentleman who told him that he resided in Wisconsin. A missionary . ... . 11" 1 1 .LI . L came wnere ne uvea ana esiaoiisueu a oaoumu School. .Among the scholars who attended the School were a couple of little girls. Shortly after one of them was taken sick, and soon died. As she was upon her death bed, she called her mother, wbo was an ungodly woman, to her bedside, and said : " Mother, I want you to meet me in Heaven," and then, as she was about passing into another world, she turned to her father, who was without the love of God in his heart, and said : " i ather, 1 wnnt you to eive your heart to God," and immediately expired. Now both that tatner and motner are memoers oi tne church : and, said the gentleman, "I am the father. This shows the great influence exerted upon parents by their children, who are taught to love their Maker in the Sabbath Schools. No other influence could have reached these parents, who are now both re joicing in the hope of everlasting life. A ne ounaav ocnooi saves cuuuroa. tv una uo wan visitinsr in Iowa, he had been into a crogcry to per- i suade its proprietor to forsake the evil traffic, and was coming out wnen ne met a man at tne aoor wno said : " I am a poor, wicked drunkard, but I have two fine boys won't you save them 1" That fa ther s heart knew the influence ot the babbatn school upon the young. It is a blessed cause that rescues the children of the land from the haunts of vice and paths of wickedness, and brings them into the light of truth and Christianity. lie referred to tbe experience ot Mr. iaxon, a missionary, among the soldiers of the west, and the many evidences he has discovered of the vast benefits of early teachings in the Sabbath School. la conclusion, he appealed lor aid to extend the good work. Two things are wanted. 1st, money, and we want all we can get, to pay lor libraries to give away in neighborhoods where the people are too poor to buy. 2d, we want contributions to support missionaries to be sent into fields which promise an abundant harvest. In the border States, particularly, the war has broken up, to a great extent, the Sunday School system, and we earnestly desire that missionaries may be sent there to push the work with vigor, and to every other portion of our country, which can be reached, where there are children not under the influence of God's truth. Rev. Mr. Calkins then introduced Chaplain H. Clay Trumbull, and paid a high compliment to the soldiers who composed the regiment to which Mr. T. belonged, as he saw them yesterday, and never met with a congregation who rcauifesteda more truly devout christian spirit. Rev. Henry Clay Trumbull said that before he could speak as a chaplain, hi ""inn vu heard in be. half of the children's cause. All who know me know that I lovo the little ones. Before I entered the army I was a Snnday school missionary for the State of Connecticut, under the American Sunday School Union. When I left for the war, the Society insisted that I should still retain the . position. It has been said tbat the Sunday school boys who came home with me, behaved yesterday nobly. An officer of one of our banks told me that he bad paid out about $20,000 ao the men of that regiment, and did not hear an oath from any of them. The railroad men said they never saw such a regiment. Tho reason of it is that the Sabbath school influences which were thrown around them while at home, followed them to the war, and we see the result. The veteran soldiers who are to come home are to wield a powerful influence either for good or evil ; and he believed the war brings out the influence of the Sunday schools which could not have been done in any other way. We see now the fruit of Sunday school work and Bible training. On the night when volunteers were called for from our regiment to take a torpedo and go forward to Fort Sumter and blow up the sally port, to almost certain death, a noncommissioned officer sprang forward to lead the van; and he is a Sabbath school man, one who has aided me in my Christian work. Those wbo bave shunned the personal influence of Christianity have not the proper sense of manhood to make good soldiers. He mentioned numerous instances where tbe courage of soldiers had been displayed heroically, because they trusted in God. One of the soldiers of his regiment was nick-named "Christian" partly in jest and though a feeble framed youth, and sick, most of the time, yet in battle, he was always on hand, and when told by the surgeon that he was not strong enough to be a soldier, he wept like a child. He is not one of the re-enlisted but has gone home to his last account. The truth that early impressions are all-powerful is illustrated every day in soldier life. No chord vibrates so quickly in the soldiers' breast as that which is tuned to "Home, sweet home." Throughout the entire army with officers and men, home is the dearest and best loved spot, and when the mail boat arrives the camp is a scene of the wildest excitement, so anxious is every one to hear from home. Home influences are precious, and they are always bright when the Sunday school enteis into the household. He rejoiced in the extension of Snnday school in fluence and power, .and honored the American bun day School Union for the noble work it is doing, and he believed no society in the Union was entitled to so much sympathy and support. It is a society which can follow up the army and make secure the influences for good. He urged in conclusion, the necessity cf supporting the society by liberal contributions. Rev. Mr. Chidlaw was next introduced, and said it was a matter of congratulation that in the midst of the fearful struggle which is going on in the land for national lifa, there is no apparent lack of energy iu the good works of education and Christianity. lie had been laboring tor some time among tbe soldiers in the army. We may learn much of the value of early religious training, by the want of it. As a chaplain he saw tbe fearful want of Christianity which prevailed in the ranks of the army. Seldom did he find a soldier but would take a bible or a tract, and very many of them would read with earnestness and evident thankfulness for tbe gift ; but many others would paes the greater portion of their time in playing cards, etc. And, upon inquiring of these, it was found that they had never had tbe benefit of early religious training at home and in the Sabbath ' school. He cited numerous instances, when he had talked with the soldiers, showing the inestimable blessings which flow from the influences of Sabbath schools. He referred, in a feeling mtmnero the neglected regions of the country, where the wwk of Christianity would spread rapidly by encouraging missionary labor. One great field is now open in all parts of tbe South where our army has gained possession of the territory, blavery has not only crushed the negro slaves, but it has socially degraded the poor wnir.es, wno are in a lernoie siate or surrenng and ignorance. He asked a party of men, women and children to take a book and read it, but not one out of the tbirty-hve comprising tbe party could read ; and this was not on the banks of the Nile, but on tbe banks of the Tennessee. He read a letter from a lady in Western Virginia, to whom he had sent sixteen dollars' worth of books, showing what great i r. , . i . i i i r . . oeueuvs nau oeeu ueriveu irom mem. He- appealed earnestly in behalf of the Snndav School Union for substantial aid. Another larse i?U 1 T I A 1 . . ueiu woicu una vj ue hwiuj, is among tne ireedmen. We must send them Sunday school teachers, first to teach them to read, and then we can supply them with books. They learn rapidly. Men and women are now doing glorious work in every freedmeu's camp, and no object appeals stronger to us than that the poor negroes should be instructed. His remarks throughout were very interesting, and we regret that want of room compels us to give bnt a brief synop sis. The only public appeal which the Society will make to our people was made last night, and it is hoped there will be a liberal response. The operations of the Society bave accomplished an amount of work which will be of incalculable benefit to the j cause of the church and of Christianity. Daring the last year thera have been 860 schools organized ; 54,-626 children have been enrolled ; 8,364 schools htrre, 'Ways been visited and aided, embracing 193,430 scholars ; 16,000 families bave been visited ; and 4,275 bibles and testaments distributed among them. A work of so much magnitude needs eonstant aid to keep it flourishing, and we are sure the contributions from Hartford will be given with a correct understanding of what is needed.
