turnip €nbtmte SATURDAY, MARCH 18. 1865. THR KEW& Tbe great storm at tbe East has laid an effectual embargo upon tbe transmission of news, and-rc arc consequently obliged to go to press without a Hue of intelligence'from the military si I nations. Telegraphic comxntmiealiou cast of Buffalo is cut off, and, excepting a few straggling reports which have Jbund their way round via Montreal, we are without any advices from the East From the brief report* which have come through Jt appears that the storm has been one of unusual severity. ■ Id the oil regions of Pennsylvania, railroads, telegraph lines, bouses, tahis, oil barrels, and other greasy paraphernalia of that greasy honeycomb, arc ■washed away, j As no calculations are ever 3nade in that locality except upon tbe fcasle of millions, the losses are estimated ■at several millions. At Utica, N. T., tbe dlood has cut off tbe supply of gas and swept away tbe Iron railroad bridge, and at Rochester many of the streets are overflowed, and ibe railroad bridges are in danger. We shall doubtless soon hear of great damage in various localities. The Missouri State Convention has vacated the offices of all tbe Circuit, Criminal and Probate Judges in the State, besides sheriffs and other court officers, in all some eight hundred, leaving their places to he Ailed by gubernatorial appointment. This will effectually sift out the disloyal office-holders. The Lcgiriature of Wisconsin Ibe name of a town from Abbott to Sherman —a vety popular name just now.

[From the Richmond Euqmrcr, March 13.] AiKmt the Igtof the present month, ftheritlan, 'With between C,(KX) and 10.003 men, ctarted on a raid up the valley, visited Staunton unopposed, And cross‘*d the Blaußidgeat ll«ckllsh Gap, opposed by Eary and 6imc 1,500 men. Tho opposi:inn was fruitless, liowtver, onr forces being almost snmnnded l»y overwhelming namhe-s and over I,o33cap* lurcd. The enemy then entcreed Charlottesville unopposed. The following letter gives sc interesting sketch ofthe occupation of that place CnAULOTTC* VIU.E, March 9, 1553. Tbc Yankee army, fire thousand strong, entered this place on Friday, about two o'clock F. M., the 8d instant, umpi>osed> r jlie Mayor and civil authorities of the corporation met the enemy on & hill southwest of the University rotunda, where the town •was surrendered by tbc Mayor, and protection to private property guaranteed by the Yankees to the citizens and to the author!- - tics of the University. At flrstfive horsemen with drawn pistols rode up to the flag of rtruco, and then immediately galloped to town, then followed six others, and then General Costar, turroundedby a dozen or "twenty men, beanng Confederate dags captured from the defeated and routed troops of General Early; then followed the entire column through the mniu street to the front of the Baptist Female Institute. All the stores •were closed and tbc windows of the bouses •we e generally blindrd,and but for the rabbleof negrot-s and mean, low bred white women on the streets, everythin" indicated a dead nud buried city. S>»on after theatrical of the invaders guards were placed at every ©‘.reel, c« ossed along the line of march. Gen. 31errill*p headquarters were established at Ylrs. B. IT.‘Shackleford’s, and General Sheridau’e at Mrs. Elizabeth Cole’s; the signal corps at Mr. John Cochrane’s. An interview •was held between the Mayor andHiv. Dr. IBroaddus and General Custer, when thclatter assured these geutleraenriial every necessary protection should bo glveu to p ivate proper - IT. At the close of the day the Mayor and .Aldermen were sent for at the headquarters of Genual Merritt, who were requested to procure com and forage to supply the horses of the invaders, and delivered to them at Ihclr camps. Unless this was done an order lo search the premises of the citizens would 3mve to be made. The civil authorities prom- Seed to make inquiries among the citizens to ascertain how much of the ar’lcles required They had on hand, the General saying when lie needed them he would send his wagons for The articles. Four hund r ed Im-hels of com belonging to our Government were found at Cochraut’s mill, and a few hundred barbels of •wheat, belonging to private persons were found 'and taken possession of. At night the farms armod Charlottesville •were covered with cavalry, presenting a sad picture to the eyes o f our citizens. In town quiet prevailed during the night, except the 3dolse of passing troops as new d-tacbments arrived. Out of the town depredations and Thievirg were carried on at all places where the occu|iante had-failed to procure private guards, which had been given to all who requested it. On 8-turday morning, in the outskirts of the town, disorder began to p-e---wail, stores broken open and robbed, private bouses entered and searched. But these were ctopped by the orders and interference of offi~-C£rs; and during the. stey of the army the discipline was rigid and severe, and very llt- Tle damage was done, and private bouses were ■free from interruption by soldiiers; and, •where private guards were given, no soldier dare enter the bouse without a special written permission from general headquarters. The Hurmers, however, were not protected in their property and provisions; everything eatebl* for man and were consumed, and acts of atrocity and meannc>s were committed. Thtcats of vengeance were made to ladies, in order to pel th'-ir watches; the wretches held pistols to their heads to snlimidate them and compel them to give up Their property. These and similar acts wore done for ton miles east of. Charlottesville, as far down as the enemy wntured lo go. Scouting and robbing parties were sent out in all directions on Saturday and Sunday, plundering os they went. The slaves were not exempt from plunderings. Whenever one bad any gold or elver it was sure to be stolen by these pretended negro-worshippers. On Saturday ana Sunday all the able-bodied negro men were pressed into the Yankee serwlcc to destroy the iron railroad bridges, and on Sunday evening the wood trestlework of These bridges was burned, and They are now aheap of mins. The county free bridge was burnt on Monday morning. Montic dlo would have been burned had not the wife of the present occupant been sick. The vandals Threatened to on their next visit. A raiding party that went down to within Two miles of the Hun. W. C. Rives’ threatened to born his bouse also. _ Grain, foiape, provisions and horses were Taken iff the farms, In some jiot a particle to feed the cattle with; vet generally the hogg cows, oxen, sheep and fowls were not disturbed. In some few ineterccM hog or a beef or a sheep was killed, but none were wantonly destroyed. On Friday night the Jacto-V of Mr. Marchant was destroyed. On Monday that of Mr. Flaniiagan was also destroyed, and all Tbc factories within their reach shared a slm* olarfute. On Sunday evening some of the Yankee a*my determined to publish a paper, and *wi‘ul to the Chyould' office to effect their design ; but portions of the press had been removed with the tyj»e, und they were unable to do so. They then took possesion of the Jeffersonian office, andccmmcucod operations, and after progressing for a while, suddenly «iult, saying they might resume their object luxi.dav; but orders had been issued to move off by six o’clock next day, and no further operations for the issue of their paper were resumed. Inclosed I send a copv of euch articles as were left In type by the Yankees. No damage was done to the tvpe or fixtures of either of the printing offices in the place. On Mondcv morning, soon aPer light, the drums were heard, end the troops were seen marching down the main B‘rcet, evacuating the town. Large numbers of negroes mounted on stolen horses were seen going off with, the Yankees; women with little children in their arms seemed as eager to be off as the men. While the Yankee army was in Charlottes•vlllc they circulated reports that Lymffibu-g was captured, Richmond evacuated,&e,; but Mone but weuk-beaded and weak-kneed persons gave credence to such stories. They wild there were fifteen thousand cavalry with them; but five thomand will cover all tbev had. Gens. Sheridan, Oustar, Merritt and Porsyth were with the invaders. If there were other generals I have not heard their names. On leaving the. town they separated into four columns, taking ns many different directions. One of the columns went to Scotts- Mile, destroying the factory there and the canal. Yours, Moxxjcello. TIDE CRISIS I* TIMS SOUTH.

I was a regular attendant at the meetings utter my elccfon until about six weeks before the election, daring which tone I was only present twice or three times. I also served a term of six mouths as Secretary before my election in Angnst. I have hevid Judge Morris address the Order lialf a dozen times. I nevcr*heard him speak in reference to the prisoners at Carop Douglas, or thwir forcible release. There never was any project in the Order to release them. I heard Judge Morris apeak In reference to the objects ol the Order. Dr. A>«t spoke immediately before him, ana tald he had heard certain representations about the Orrer, and if they were correct, he would give notice that he would sever his connection with it, and so be wonted to hear l;s object stated. The Judge said the Order was to enable ns to protcc: purseltea against attack from the Loyal Leagues, and to aid in the election of the Democratic candidate for President, Oca. Mc- Clellan. I asked him if he Indorsed McClellan. He said that although he had opnosed bi™, be should now support him, because he bad been nominated by the Convention. He said not a word in reference to the rebels at Camp Douglas. Dr. Ayer then said he Indorsed all the Jndgu bad said, and that all true lovers of their country should abide by iL Doolittle was boisterous, and his speeches were received with displeasure. Dr. Ayer made speeches against the Administration. Mr. Alexander was also severe on thc«£ts of the Government. Mr. Strawn made the moat violent speeches of any in the Order. 1 have heard Judge Morris say that the President usurped undefegated powers, such as suspending the writ of ha- Lias coi put, but he always considered the members to he law-ahidng. i I was advised to leave the city by Dr. Ayer, while in his office on the isth day oCNovcmber. Dc told me I would be arrested, and Iliad better get awar that night. I told him I had nothing to fear, and if I ran away it would point suspicion toward me. Uesald he know that, but my arrest would give me much trouble, and I might have to defend myself. I was arrested about half an hour afterward. as soon as I had got home. 1 was conlined until the testimony of ihe prosecution was closed, and then released on parole. 1 never saw Grenfell in the meetings of the Order. C. C.-Strawn was the Brigadier of the Order; Mr. Walsh was not. There was money raised for the protection of the polls. 1 made some collections among the Order. I was Inslrocted to give up our meeting ball to the janitor Immediately after the election. , When I was paroled I was siraplv charged not to talk with any person in reference to this trial, wli ich 1 have obeyed. I beard Dr. Ajer ask us all to sng?c*t some plan to release these prisoners. He proposed a plan to release them by taking them oat of camp and assisting them 10 escape. I rebuked the idea, and so did The others wb o were there at the meeting, which was held in his office. 1 heard Doolittle say that he had been to Washington. Retold me he was a detective, hut did not say what for. Doolittle’s speeches were generally boisterous and extravagant. Atone time he was depleting the sufferings of .the people, and became so affected thathccned. He was speaking against the war. After his speech. Mr. Strawn came to me and said: “Don’t you know that Doolittle is Insane on this snbjectf” I have no recollection of Doolittle speaking in favor of the release of the rebel prisoners m Carop Donqlas. He spoke of men who wcie In prison.* 1 can only recollect of one, named P. C. Wright, bnt ~he said nothing about them coming to our astistanee; I never heart Judpc Morris eiy anything about the rebel prisoners in Camp Douglas; sometimes the Judge was mild, and sometimes harsh in his soeeches; Jo speaking against the opposite party he sometimes called them AbolltiooUts, and said they could present a bold front, bur could not be depended on,.and that be was good for two of them at any time, if he was an old man. cross-examination, the Commission Cixcewati* March 16.—Patrick Dooley, on cross-examination this morning, admitted that as Secretary of the Society of the lllini, he was instructed by some members to destroy the records of the Society, and did so.

The witness replied no ; whereupon an exciting scene ensued between the Judge Advocate and counsel for the .secured*- as to which should have the attention of tbo witness, during which the Judge Advocate said: “I will attend to youexase."

Julios Cccsar as Described by Bonaparte— Cicsar as a Politic)*! Leaderrasar as a “rtlau or UcstlDy»-The Use and BenclU of a Strong GoTernniczif. JULIUS CXSAR AS DESCRIBES BT BONAPARTE. The Emperor's description of Cm«ar, bis habits and tastes. Is very graphic. He says • • • To these natural gilts, developed by a brilliant education, were Joined physical advantages. Bis lofty filature, and bis finely moulded and'well proportioned limbs, imparted to his persona grace which distinguished him from all others. Brecye? were dark, his glance penetrating, his complexion colorless, and hla nose straight and somewhat thick. Hi* month was small and the lips rather full, gave to the lower part of his face an expression of kindliness, while bis breadth of torehcad indicated the development of the intellectual faculties. Bis face wta fall,at least, in his youth; hat in the hosts which were made towards the dose of his life, bis features are thinner, and bear the traces of fatigue. Bis voice was sonorous and vibrating; hla gesture noble, and an air Of dignity pervaded Lis whole person. Bis constitution, which at first was delicate, grew robust by sober living, and by his s habit of exposing himself to the inclemency of the .seasons. Accustomed from his yonth to manly exercise, he was a bold horseman; and he supported with ease privations and fatigues. Uabilualy abstemious, his health was not weakened by excess of labor. Lor by excels of pleasure, nevertheless, on two occasions, once at Cordova, and then at Thapsos. he had a nervous attack, which was erroneous'y thought to he epilepsy. He paid particular attention to hla person, thaved wuh care, or htdrhe hairs plucked out; bo brought forward arllahcalT bis hair to the front of bis head, and this, In hla more advanced nge,served to conceal his baldness. Be was reproached with the affectation of scratching his head with only one linger, for fear of deranging his hair. Ilia dress was arranged with exquisite taste. Bis gown was generally Bordered with the Isticlavc,ornamented with fringes to the hands, and was bound round the loins by a sash loo*ely knotted—a fashion which distinguished thcelcgtnt and effeminate you’h of tho’pcrlod. Em Soils was not deceived by this show of frivolity, and he was wont to recommend .that people should have an eye on that young (man with the Cowingtash. Be bod a taste fur pictures, etatu-isandgems, and he always wore on hla finger, in memory of hla origin, u ring on which was engraved the figure of an armed Venus. To sum up, there were found in Umsaf, physically and morally, two natures which ere rarely combined In the same person. Be joined aristocratic fastidiousnets of person to the vigorous tempermentoi’ the soldier; the graces of mind to the profundity of thought; the lovo of luxury and or the arts to a paseion for military life in all its simplicity and ‘rudeness. In a word, lie joined tho elegance of maunfr which eednees, tojthc energy of character which commands. Such was Cicaar at the ago of IS, when Scylla possessed himself of the Dictatorship. Be hod already attracted the attention of the Romans by hii name, bis wit, hia engaging manner?/which were so pleasing to men, and still moros%o, perhaps to women. (Llv. 11., cap. i.) CA£AS AS A POLITICAL LEADER—HIS DITFICDLTT uf ronxxno a party. In periods of transitions- and ibis is their greatest danger—when it is necessary to choose between a glorious poet aud on unknown fuiure, bold and unscrnpaloos men are those only who ibinst tbcmEClve? forward. Others, more dnud, and enslaved by prejudices, remain in the shade, and are an obstacle to the movement by which society is borne on to new way?. It Is a'ways a great evil for a country which has been o prey to agitation that honest men, or good man, as Clce< ro called them, do not accept the modern ideas which by moderating they might direct. Bence profound divisions, unthe one hand, disreputable people profit by the good'or evil passions of the croud: on the other, honorable, but passive or intractable men oppose all progress, and provoke, by their obstinate resistance, legitimate impatience and deplorable violence. The opposition of these last mentioned has the double disadvantage of leaving the field clear to loose who are less « orthy, and of keeping up donbt In the minds of the fioailng mass who judge of parties more by thojrobltv of individuals than l«v the value of ideas. What passed la those timel at Borne is a striking example of the fact. Was It not. Indeed, Just, that people should hesitate to prefer to the taction which hod at its head illastnon? persons like Uortensias, Catulus, Marcellos, LucnUosand Cato, the party which coasted In' Its ranks men like Catinlus, Mauling, Catiline, Vantinins and Clcdlns ? What more legitimate in the eyes of the descendants of the ancient families thnp that resistance to all change, and the disposition to consider all reform as utopian, and almost sacrilegious? What more logical than to admire the firmness of sool of Cato,-who, still young, braved the threat of death rather than admit the pos«l---hllity of becoming one day the defender of the canee of the allies demandmgthe rights of Romm citlteus J And how ehould they not enter into the feelings of Catulus and Bortenslos defending with obstinacy the privileges of the aristocracy*, and manifesting their fears at the onward impulse to concentrate all authorliy in a single person? And yet tho cause supported by such men was doomed to perish, like everything else that has completed Its lime. In spile of their virtues, th**y were only an obstacle the more in the regular inarch of civilisation, becacEO they were deficient in the quality which is most essential in time? of revolutionthe faculty of understanding the requirements of the moment and the problems of the future. Instead of seeking out what could bo saved from Ibe wreck of the old regime which wa? going to pieces on that most formidable of rocks—corruption of public morals—they refused to admit that the institution to which the republic had been indebted for its greatness would prove the cause of 1 s decline. Terrified at every innovation, they confounded In the same proscription the sedition ot a few Tribunes and tbc Jiut demands of tbc people. Bat their Influence was so considerable and the ideas mat were hallowed by thorn held such an empire .over their znlads, that they would still have obstrnttad 7ho triumph of the popular cause, had not Cxsar, by putting himself at its head, given It new lustre and irresistible force. Aparty, like an army cannot conquer but under a leader working to command it. and all who, since the time of the Oraccbl, hsd raised the flag of reform hod su'llod. It wtih blood and deeraded it with revolt Cscjsr raised It np again and pcr.ficd It In order to constitute hisparly he had, ills true, sometime* recourse to agents Car irom estimable. Tho best architect can only build with the materials ho Ins at hand ; but bis constant thoughtyvis to associate in hia designs the most respectable men. He S Jared no effort to gain over Pompcy, Crassos, iccro. Scrvillus, Cmplo, Q. Fusloa Ca’enaa, S. Stipules, and many others of tbesame stimp. In moments of transition, when the old system is in extremity and the new one not yet in place, the greatest difficulty docs not consist in overcoming obstacles wh»ch are opposed to the installation of u government called lor by the wishes of the country, butln solidly establishing It; in found-, mg it on the co-operation of honorable men penetrated with the new ideas, and firm in tbeir principles. (Liv. It., chap, n.) C.ESAJI “A .MAN OT DESTINT”— MISREPRESENTATIONS or ms motives retcteo. We have shown Cmsar acting only In accordance with his political convictions, whether as the ardent promoter of all popular measures or as the avowed partisan of Fompey. We have shown him aspiring, through noble ambition, to power and honors, butwe know that historians mcencral suggest other motives for his conduct He is represented as having since CSt all hts plans arranged, his snares laid, his instruments ready. They attribute to him absolute knowledge of the fathre, the faculty of directing men andtoings at his pleasure, and of making each man an ancon* scions accomplice in his deep designs. All his acts are moved by a hidden agency, which the historians boast ofdiscovcrlng after all is done. If Cmsar catchup the standard of Marias, and be-' 'comes the deiender of the oppressed, and' the persecutor of the hired assassins of the past tyranny, it 'ls• in order to seenre assistance necessary 10 his ambilion. - If he straggle against Cicero for _ tbo legality of tbe proceedings against the accomplices of Catalfnc, or support an agrarian law of which he approves the political object: if, in order to repair a great injustice committed by Scylls, he supports the re-fnatatement in their rights of the children of the proscribed, it Is with a view to abase tho great orator In the eyes of the popular party. If, on the contrary, he places his influence at tbe service of Fompey; if, on the occasion oi the war against tho pirates, he contributes to invest him with powers deemed exorbitant ; if ho second tho pleoiseitum which confers noon him the command of tbo army against Mlinrfdates: if subsequently he moved that extraordinary honors should be conferred upon him in hu ab: once—all this is with the Macchlavclian object of turning the greatness of Fompey to his own advantage. So that, if be defend liberty, it is to rain his adversaries; and if he defend the government it is to habituate the Romans to tyranny. Finally, if Cssar pretend, like all members of the Roman nobility, to the honor of the Co ? H ? ,ate » It is because he sees through the fasces and tho dust of tbe battlefield tbe dictatorshipnay, even tbe throne. Snch interpretations proceed from tho too common fault of not cstlmailng facts by themselves, “? m Jbe coloring whlcn subsequent evils impart to them. It Is, Indeed, a strange Inconsistency to attribute to men of superior mark at *° oß t paltry motives and sa icrbaman foresight. No; it was not the thought of keening Cfccro In check which guided Ciesar. He bad not recoups to tactics more or leas skillful; ho acted on his arm conviction, and what places this beyond doubt is, that once raised to power, hla act? were to carry out, a' consul or dictator, what be had advocated as a simple citizen; for instance the agrarian law and the reinstatement of the proscribed. No; If he supported Fompey it was not because he contemplated polling him down aft-r setting him up. but because the Illustrious cantainted embraced tho same cause os himself* for It was given to no one to read tbe fntnrc so well as to divine the use which the conqueror of IHthridatcs would make of his triumphs and his popularity. In fact, when he landed in Italy, Rome was in a state of much anxiety. Would he disband his army? was the cry of alarm heard on all sides. If he come as a master, no one could resist him. Contrary to the general expectation, Fompey disbanded his troops. How, then, conld Qesar foresee a moderation so unusual in those dsys I Is it more correct to sa; that Cffisar on becoming Procon?pl aspired to supreme power? No; on setting out for Gaul ho could have no thought of reigning at Boas, no more than General Bonaparte In sotting pat lor Italy In ITO6 dreamed of the Empire. Was it possible for Cffisar to foresee that during his ton years’ stay In Ganl be should be always succes? at, and that at the end of that period the minds of the Roman people would lie favorable to hi* schemes? Conldbe guess that the dMth of his daughter would snap the links that had bound b'm to Pom* pey; Out Crsisus, instead of returning trlamphant from the Ea't, would be conquered and slain by the Parthisns; that the murder of 'Clof'ins would throw oil Italy m*o ■ confusion: and, finally, that the anarchy which be had striven Id pat down by means of tbc Triumvirate won d lead to his elevation r Ctcsar bad before his eyes great examples. He marched gloriously In the footsteps of men like Sciploano Panin*Emilma- The hatred of his cuemu‘B forced him to seize the dictatorship like Scylla, bnl for a nobler cause, and by conduct exempt from vengeance and cruelty. Let us not be tbes anxious to seek out petty passions in great souls. Vhe success of superior men—and this Is a consoling reflection—is owing more to the loftiness of their sentiments than to the calculations of selfishness and astuteness. Their success depends mnefa more on their abilltyin taking advantage of circumstances than on the blind presumption of believing themselves capable of producing events which are only In the bands of God. Certainly, Ctesat had faith In his destiny and confidence in his genius; but faith is an instinct, and not a calculation, and genius forejudges the future withofff divining Us mysterious course.—(Llv. Ii; chap, t.) THE USB AND BENEFIT OF A BTBOKO OOVERNBEST .—WHAT TUB AUTHOR THINKS .OF THE DICTATORSHIP OF BCTLLA. * * * The history of the last fifty years, and especially the Dictatorship of Scytla, evidently showed that Italy required a master. On all sides the institutions gave way before the power of one' who was sustained not only by hla own partisans, but blbo by the warring crowd who, tired out by the action and the reaction of opposite partes, longed for order and repose, uad the conduct of Scylla been modera'e, that which is called the empire would probably have began with him; but his authority was exercised with such cruelty and ono-aldedoesa that on his death people forgot the abuses of liberty, to think only of the abuses of tyranny. The more the democratic spirit spread, the more did the old institutions lose tbc prestige that ouce attached to them. In truth, confldlogand impassioned, always believes its interests to be more suitably represented by a single person than by a political body, it was ever Inclined to Intrust its future to him who should raise himself by merit above his contemporaries. The Gracchi, Marias nni ScyJk had each In turn disposed at their pleasure of the destinies of thcrepnblic; had with Impunity trampled under foot old institutions and old usages; but their reign was transient,for they represented only factions. Instead of comprehensive regard for the wishes and interests of the whole Italian peninsula, they favored this or thit .class of society exclusively. Some wanted, above all other things, to improve the condition of the pauper population of Rome, to procure emancipation lor the raltolesT’or preponderance for the equestrian order; while others sought to maintain the privileges of the* aristocracy. Both* fatted. -In order* to found a durable order of things a man was wanting who, raising himself above vulgar passions, should combine in himself the essential qualities and the just ideas of each one of those who bad preceded him, and who should avoid their defects as well as their errors. To the greatness of soul aud.thu love for -the people wbirh distinguished certain of the Tribunes, he should Join the military genius of the great Generals, and the profound altichmcnt of the dictator to order and hierarchy. JTAs man qualified for to high a mission already existed ; bur, notwithstanding his name, he would perhaps have remained long unknown had not the penetrating eye of Scylla detected him amid the crowd, and by persecution drew the attention of (he people upon bun. That man was Caesar, (Liv. 1., chop, vl.) Important to Stock Dealers. The N. Y. Tribune gays: “We camion farmers in Illinois against a villain, suspected to ho or the name of Flagler, wfio la perambulating that State, offering tu bay cattle la the name of ‘D. P.
