ington — defeat of the commutation Appeal clause in the Conscription bill-- in Washington, Etc. A telegram from Washington, dated the 21st inst, says: The United States dispatch boat, Capt Mitchell, left the Navy Yard-to-day, with President Lincoln and the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for City Point. It is understood that Mr Lincoln and Assistant Secretary Fox have gone to the front to consult upon the future programme of the campaign. To day's session of the House was asMr Lincoln and Assistant Secretary Fox have gone to the front to consult upon the future programme of the campaign. To day's session of the House was assigned for the consideration of the business of the Military Committee, and was entirely occupied by it. It went on quite smoothly until the bill repealing the commutation clause of the Enrollment act came up. It was evident from the first that a large majority was opposed to repealing it, and the additional section, prohibiting the furnishing of substitutes unless near relatives of the drafted man did not aid it in the least. Mr Schenack argued in favor of the bill, and urged its passage a

No light from earth or Heaven shines upon its sepulchral shades. It is, from beginning to end, the pure and unmixed work of the devil.
are the results of the new organization, and might have been expected. The Yankee Government resolved to make this a desperate campaign. They chose a desperate fighter to head their armies, and a desperate liar to write their bulletins. Their General has fought desperately, and their Secretary has lied accordingly. All this is official, and might have been expected. But, as is usual in other cases, private enterprise is in a fair way to get the advantage of Government patronage. Lincoln made a mistake in not putting his lying out to the highest bidder, instead of having it done by a Government employee. The desperate energy with which certain liars, on their own hook, prosecute the trade, in spite of the monopoly he is attempting to establish, abundantly proves what we say to be true. Most conspicuous among the adventurers of this class is the correspondent of the New York Times, who writes from the army before Petersburg. Of this man it may be truly said, as Phillips,
