STIFENS on Confiscation has been rei :
piikted in most of the leading papers in
the I.7iiited Stabu.-- 7 having been, on fuel
count of the public interest of its contents,
teleraphed all over the country by the
WaAtington City Agent of the Associated-
Press,lo whom we sent an advance copy.
It has provoked a variety ofcounnent.—
The Democratic newspapers, true to their
uniforni policy thoroughout the war of al
lowing nothing to be done which could
harm their Rebel friends, think it atroci-.
ous, and give it. the. benefit of their
choicatit terms of denunciation. The
Southern newspapers are shocked by it,
and would tremble at it, if they believedn
its adoption imminent. The Republic
an press discuss it, in terms of approval ;
or, if dissenting, with respectful deference
to the great leader who has ;promulgated
it. 'We believe there is but one eleeftion
'to this statement—the EVENINcI TF:LE
(;tt&pii Of Philadelphia.
This paper, in its issue of tle:29th, pnb
lished au editorial chiefly noticeable for
the Censurable flippancy of its allusions
to Mr. STEVENS and the grossness of its
attack upon. the citizens. of th,Border
counties. F.l:he article does not controvert
'the reasons by which Mr. STEVENS sus
tains his polic.V: On the other hand, it
"It may be -that confiscation will be
necessary as a punishment for continued
contumacy; It may be that it will be
needed to yet further humble the Spirit
of the late Rebels. 13ut it can never be
that it will beunforced to repay the Penn
sylvania farmers for losses suffered years
ago, and already once paid by the State."
Thus, the Editor of the EVENING TELE
GRAPH, by his own showing, is not op
posed,, in principle,. to Confiscation; but
declargs he will be for it if it be necessary
a.s a ptinisment, or to humble the spirit of
the late Rebels., Mr. STEVENS is for it,
as his letter shows, because the law and
practieeof nations justifyit, and because
justice,to innocent and plundered citi
zens of the United States, requires it.—
There is then this difference, in this re
spect, between thp position of
of the EVENING TELEGRAPH and Mr.
STEVENS. The, former makes his ap
proval of the policy dependent upon his
desire to punish the Ile,bels.;.Mr. STEVENS,
upon the inherent justice of the thing it
self, upon; the uniform practice of nations,
and the outraged "mut-11's" of citizens.
Which Is the nobler view ?
But the EVENING TELEGRAPH . protests
that Confiscation shall "never be en
forced to reparthe Pennsylvabia farmers
for losses suffered years ago, and already
once paid by the State." .
Mr. STEVENS demands Confiscation as
just; and payment of losses Its "an inci
dent. ''he EVENING, TELEGRAPH adver
tises its contingent willingness to de
man fiscatiop, but protests against
p •ment of losses, in any event. And
or three reasons :
Ist. The losses Were suffered years agO.
As if lapse of time ever weakened a just
claim, or relieved a negligent State from
its DVTY of protecting faithful citizens.—
But these losses occurred within the last
live years, and most of them within four.
The plea is beneath contempt.
2nd. These losses have been already
"once paid by the State." .I:Unfortunate
ly, tihis is not true. The Sthte gave $600,-
000 to citizens of Chambersburg ; not a'
penny to hundreds of others in Adams,
Franklin and other counties, who were
as severely treated and whoie bottles were
‘. as completely desolated as any citizens of
Chambersbur. There is no differenceof
principle between those claims which
have been recognized as just, and 'those
which have been denied. And the State
and Nation Will yet see clearly that the
highest of obligations requires that the
spoliated counties of the Border shall have
a fair hearing, and an honest judgment.
But 3rd, the EVF:NING TELEGRA PH
elsewhere in its article says:
"If there is no bCtter ground for con
fiscation -than to repay the cowardly,
semi-disloyal farmers of the counties
named, who charged our 'soldiers for a
cup of milk, and tied from or tamperect
with the Rebels, we do not favor it.'
This is intended to convey theltupres
sion that the bulk of the citizens of the
Bordeicounties were unfaithful to the
government, and unkind to its soldiers,
and are therefore undeserving of just con
sideration. The war has produced no
fouler slander: Doubtless, there were
hereslisloyal men during the war. Most
of them got their inspiration from disloy
al Philadelphians whom we could readily
name. It may lie that, under this stimu
lus, in some cases, greed got the better of
patriotism. But We utterly 'deny the
truth of the general statement of the
These counties responded promptly to
every call of the country for troops, or
for supplies, and cqntributed of their sub
stance iiii - fulty - fortheesupport of thi gov
e*iment in every good work as any por

the statement, broadly ; and We mean it
precisely as it standO. Some of the best
men in our communities; after doing their
whole duty to the country, were render
houseless and homeless. by - our coun

been 'denied rill compensation. And all
this while bloated traitors, pardoned of
their crimes, own their millions, and
boast their agency in the war. The Edi
tor of the EVENING TELEGRAPH may
now think himself able to justify this
lindifference..of the State 'and : r - Oeneral

ment must, we think, in time rabel
against his present paasionate proscrip
