many privations have had a deleterious effect upon their naturally vigorous constitutions. There were never, I am informed, over twelve thousand troops at one time in Frankfort, though core Southern officers said they had thirty or forty thousand; while in Kentucky they declared they had seventy or eighty thousand. Humphrey Marshall, however, told persons here that the Confederate force in the State would not amount to over forty thousand; and I learn from residents of Lexington that Kirby Smith never had more than five or six thousand men there. As I have said before, there is but very little question their force in Kentucky has been over stated, and that we outnumber them three to one. A very large proportion of their men are mounted, every fellow who can stealing a horse and enlisting in the "cavalry." On this account this section of country is nearly barren of horses, hundreds upon hundreds having been stolen during the last two weeks. A Prospect for the defeat of

therefore, must be thought of the judgment, the prudence, or the patriotism of the doctrinaire who proclaim to all the world, in advance, that Philadelphia contains thirty thousand to forty thousand Secessionists, or, in other words, that half her voting population "desire the success of the rebellion?" The Cincinnati Inquirer, of Monday, "makes a point," as follows: The most astonishing thing in the world is, that while four members of Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet--Messrs. Seward, Blair, Smith, and Bates--were utterly opposed to his proclamation of emancipation, the Abolitionists have the audacity to denounce as 'traitors' (as some of them do) all who cannot conscientiously endorse that proclamation. The same paper notices what it calls "patent secession," to wit: "Vallandigham's Secession plan was in the form of a joint resolution proposing amendments to the Constitution."--Gazette. To propose amendments to a code of organic law which is to be over the whole, is a f
