days and nights, which were said to
be from the coast, but he could not

whole opposition in the Democratic

litical character of some of the " Doug

Convention, and we know that their
love for Douglas principles died out as
soon as it was evident Douglas could
not be elected President. Such "Doug

with the honest friends of Douglas.—
Douglas is dead, but his principles still
live with his friends. Only the office
seeking friends of the "Little Giant"
could stoop to kiss the hand that crush
ed him and the Democratic party in
1800. The Convention was controlled
by men who were delegates in the
Charleston and Baltimore Conventions,
and who refused to support the Demo

follow them. Welsh is no longer

without drafting ? We think it can,
if every home-guard will but put his
hand in his pocket and provide for tho
support of the families of those who
would go if they could be assured that
their families would not suffer during
their absence. We should avoid the
necessity of drafting if possible, at any
expense to those remaining at home
out of danger and enjoying the com
forts our soldiers cannot have. We
hope Huntingdon county will not be

WASHINGTON, July 11--Governor
Curtin reached Washington yesterday,
and had an interview with the Presi
dent and Secretary of War this morn
ing. Ho takes ground in favor of lim
iting the term of enlistment to ono
year, believing that if the war is vig
orously proseenta the rebellion will
be over at the end of that time. His
most anxious care is to fill up the deci
mated regiments of the immortal Penn
sylvania Reserves. These regiments
should not be disbanded. They are
called skeletons, but what is left of
them is composed of the blood, brains,
and bravery. There is not a man of
them that does not deserve honor and
eternal remembrance, and the youth
of the State should desire no prouder
position than to be enrolled among the
Reserves. Governor Curtin is deter
mined to put no untried officers at the
head of the now regiment.
Reliable intelligence has been receiv
ed here to the effect that the rebels
in a not very largo force, probably
three thousand strong, have appeared
in the Shenandoah Valley again, at Lu

took place on Thursday. It was not
believed to be a demonstration of any
material significance.

found the army, however, in the most
effective condition, and in much larger
force than public rumor generally ac
corded. While the President was
there a review of the entire army took
place in his presence and of all of the
generals and their staffs. The sight
was imposing in the extreme, the lat
ter part of the review being by moon

at seeing the President, knew no
bounds, and the most deafening cheers
were given wherever he appeared.—
The President reports that the loss in
killed, wounded, and missing will not
exceed fifteen thousand for all of the
late battles.

late battles before Richmond, General
McClellan arranged for a general ex

has been instructed to consummate the
same under a flag °I truce.

But, as no one else appeared to be

his mite to the entertainment, and in
formation, if possible, to this vast, or
derly, intelligent audience. From the
first of this wicked rebellion he bad
made up his mind as to his duty, and,
survive or perish, sink or swim, ho was
determined to fight it through to the
end. He was a soldier for the war.
Ho had been denounced, calumniated,
and traduced as a traitor for his devo-

one to point to an act where he had
violated his duty or his oath of office.
In fighting under the old flag for the
Government, he was but conforming
to the principles he had avowed from
his earliest inanhood. He had always
stood before the people as the advocate
of popular g overnment , against the
government of property, as a Demo
crat in the true and primary sense of
that word. And to-night he appeared
to defend the great principles of civil
and religious liberty. In our old con
tests, political parties contended whose
policy was best adapted to promote
the good and prosperity of the Gov
ernment, and of the Union, but now
the groat question was, shall this Gov.
ernment and this Union exist, or shall
they perish ? There were only two
parties now, one composed of the
friends, the other of the foes of the
Union. And although demagogues
attempted to raise the cry of Slavery
and Abolition, the real question to be
decided was, shall free government
live on the Western Continent ? Be as
sured that this is the question which
underlies the rubbish and rant of cor
rupt and reckless office-hunters. Ne
groes! Slavery! Southern Rights!
Coercion ! What terrible bugbears, to
frighten timid people and blind them
to the real point at issue ! He asked
the vast multitude before him what
Southern right any one of them had
lost in the Union ? Did it ever de
fraud or oppress you ? Then, if you
have lost no right, why all these vast
armies ? Why these bayonets, and
cannon, and fleets, and tented fields ?
Why all these new made graves and
oceans of blood? Why are hundreds
of you coming to the capital, praying
for the release of 3-our deluded boys?
Ho could tell why. It was because
some corrupt and reckless politicians
wanted place and power. They were
determined to ruin the country if they
could not govern the whole of the Union
—they were determined to govern a part.
He knew these Southern politicians,
Yancey, Toombs, Davis, Idason,Benja
main, and others, well, for be had served
with them for years in Congress.
He was familiar with their views and
feelings, and, havin g watched their
course closely, hollered that ho under
stood their motives dearly. Ho sat
side by side with them when they pro
fessed that they wanted a compromise
with the North. Bat the journals of
Congress proved that these traitors bad
an opportunity to get the compromise
they professed to desire, and yet they
allowed it to be defeated when their
vote would have obtained it. They
talked hypocritically. A settlement of
difficulties was the very last thing that
iese rebel Senators wanted.
I am a slave owner myself, not b 3
inheritance, but by hard labor, and
they not only robbed the of my ne
groes, but turned my wife and little
boy into the streets, and converted my
dwelling into a hospital and barracks.
The Southern chivalry have been the
greatest robbers and enemies of the
rights of the people that the country
has ever seen. And if this war goes
on through the folly and lvickedttess
of Southern rebels, slavery is at an
end, for iL has no protection and no
guarantee outsido of the Union. With

If so, then you concede the very thing
for which the Tories of the South are -
contending, and admit that you are

this unmanly and degrading feeling.
This is the people's Government. They
received it as a legacy from Heaven,
and they must defend and preserve it,
if it is to be preserved at all. I am
for this Government above all earthly
possessions, and if it perish, I do not
wish to survive it. I am for it, though
slavery should be struck from exis
tence, and Africa be swept from the
balance of the world. I believe, in
deed, that the Union is the only pro
tection of slavery—its sole guarantee ;
but if you persist in forcing the issue
of slavery against the Government,
I say in the face of Heaven, " Give me
my Government, and let the Degrees

This rebellion is animated and con
trolled by the worst spirit that ever
filled the bosom of man. With singu
lar audacity or ignorance, some per
sons pretend to compare the rebellion
of 1861 with that of 1776. How pre
posterous and absurd l There is not
the remotest analogy between them.
They were on the contrary, the very
antipodes of each other. The old Rev
olution was to establish and perpetu
ate freedom, but this one was to sub
vert and destroy it, and make us the
vassals of France or Great Britain.
The modern revolution would, if pos
sible, reduce us to the very servitude
from which the former delivered us.
The spirit of rebellion was fiendish,
proud, cruel, and lawless. It was so
from the day when the Devil raised
the standard of revolt in heaven, and
warred with Michael, the Archangel,
for the supremacy of the skies. We
are told that the Devil was conquered,
and chained in the infernal pit, but
that lie was to be let loose for a season.
If ever the Devil was let loose in the
world, I believe that now is the tune,
and that he is actuating this Southern
rebellion. Yet men who had aided
this diabolical rebellion now pretend
to talk of tyranny and oppression !
How long has it been since you had
your. Minute Men, your Vigilance Com
mittees, and your Passport Commit
tees? How long has it been since men
were driven from their homes for the
crime of loyalty? I was driven from
my own home, and for what ? What
crime, what offence had I done ? None,
save my devotion to the Government,
and my attachment to the Stars and
I hold that this Government is of
divine birth; that it is a gift of God
himself; and that neither Parson Elli
ott, nor Parson Schou, nor Parson
Howell, nor Armageddon, have a right
to break it up. I punish these men,
not because they arc priests, but be
cause they are traitors and enemies of
society, law, and order. They have
pursued and corrnpted- boys and silly
women, apd inculcated rebellion, and
now let them suffer the penalty. I re
ceived the other day a request to allow
some ham, sweet pickle, and other del
icacies, to be carried to these persons.
I told the applicant to send his luxu
ries to me, and I would find persons a
good deal More worthy to receive them
than these rebels. I would give them
to the suffering widows and orphans
among us, Whose husband and fathers
were deluded by these men into the
rebel army, and now fill a rebel's grave,
or lie in prison. [Shouts of " Good !
good ! that's'right !"] If delicacies aro
to be distributed, I think that these in
nocent sufferers, the victims of' these
corrupt rebel priests, are a good deal
more worthy objects of charity and
compassion than the deceivers them
selves. Why should they be feasted
and lionized, and their wretched vic
tims be left to perish? [A whistle in
the rear of the crowd.] I hear a whis
tle. I believe it is Goldsmith, who
says, in his Natural History, that there
are only two animals which hiss, the
viper, by reason of its venom, and the
goose, for its simplicity. I think the
present instance is an exception, and
that whistler is a gosling.
Some professed to entertain a holy
horror of coercion. Why, force and
error have coerced the South into her
present position, and nothing but force
and power will bring her back. You
wore coerced by the violence and force
of Secession, and the spirit of Seces-
Sion must be subdued and controlled
by force. The strong arm of the Gov
ernment must be bared, and justice
must do her work. We may as well
understand the fact first as last, and
go to work rationally. Without force
and power to coerce, we have no Gov
ernment. How have matters gone on
heretofore ? Why, when the Union
army came, the first to run to it for
protection and privileges wore Seces
sionists, who got promises of protec
tion if they would remain neutral. On
the other hand, the poor Union men
were terrified with threats of ven
geance if the rebel army should return.
The Secessionist was protected by the
Union army, and was equally confi
dent of protection should the rebel ar
my return, so he felt perfectly easy.
The Union man dreaded utter ruin,
should a reverse occur, and was filled
with perpetual alarm. So, under this
strange policy, the rebel had two guar
antees, and the Union man but one,
It is time this was stopped. The time
has arrived when treason must bo made
odious and traitors impoverished ;
These men have used their property
to destroy the Government, and fill the
land with bankruptcy and distress,
they have given their wealth to aid
rebellion and treason, and drench the
land in fraternal blood, and crush out
the last vestige of liberty, and their
property should be taken front them
to defray the expenses of the war.
And what was the motive of many of
these men in Nashville, for bringing
on and aiding rebellion? Why, many
of these elegant gentlemen rebelled to
get rid of paying their Northern debts !
If a miserable crippled negro, worth
five hundred dollars, was stolen, the
Government Must be overthrown if the
negro could not be recovered, but your

chant, call 'go among what calls

day comes, tell his creditors in the
North : " Oh, I have seceded !" It is
•w outrageous crime to steal a negro,
but it is gentlemanly financiering to
defraud a Northern creditor of $50,000
or $lOO,OOO. Hundreds of instances
could be related showing how far
the rebellion was impelled and advan
ced by this swindling spirit. Yet these
very men who had disgraced them
selves by these frauds would talk
gravely of the sin of slave-stealing.
Now, take the value of all the negroes
that have been stolen from the South,
and then take the sum of all the North
ern debts that have been repudiated
by Southern men, and the latter will
surpass the former at least ten to one.
Who own many of your public build
ings, railroad stocks, bank stocks, and
other property ?. Northern men. Yet
you who clamor about your Southern
rights can cooly defraud your North
ern friend of millions of dollars.
Governor Johnson paid an eloquent
tribute to the loyalty and fidelity of
the East Tennesseans, who, under the
crushing weight of oppression, still
remained faithful to the Union. The
conduct of many of the rebel women,
he remarked, was astonishing. How
dare you breathe treason and insult
the flag of your country? Hold up
your hands in the light of 'Heaven—
gaze steadfastly on them, and see if

I have enlisted for the war, and will
not go back. I expect to receive in

much obloquy and abuse. I know that
I am assailed with fiendish malignity.
Even to-day, I received a despatch
from one high in authority, warning
me that a band of assassins arc on my
track. How or where they mean to
strike, I know not. They are a cra
ven, dastardly set, who Gannet look
you in the eye, and who do their work
from behind your back, or in the dark,
or by poison. Some wretch, even
now, may be skulking in this crowd
awaiting a chance to do the deed to
which his master had bribed him. I
defy all this venom and malignity.—
Suppose the assassin succeeds, what
then ? What have they obtained ?
What signifies one life, when the life
of ft nation is at stake? Even from
the blood of the patriot, armies of pa
triots will arise, and the blood of the
martyrs will become the seed of the
church. In vain the threat of the as
sassin's dagger or the poisoned bowl,
for patriots, uniutimidated , will press
forward to freedom and victory, or
filling, will be blessed by posterity.—
Awake to your duty, Tennesseans !
Come up to the glorious work of sav
ing your country. Let us take along
pull, a strong pull, and a pull altogeth
er, and our country shall stand forth
regenenerated and redeemed, and
peace and prosperity again shall bless
our borders.
Rebel View of McClellan's Position
The Rebel Press Growling for News
IYASIIINOTON, July 11.—The Rich
mond Braminer of the 7th has been
received here. Discoursing upon Gen.
McClellan's present position it says:—
" We believe all that was known in
this city yesterday, outside of the Bu
reaucracy, was that the enemy had
taken a strong position, with one of
his flanks resting on the river about
Berkeley, completely under cover of
his gunboats, and his extreme right
reaching to Herring creek, where his
position is defended by an almost im
passable morass. It was supposed
that the enemy would have been at
tacked yesterday, but there had been
no fighting up to the last accounts we
have from the lines. It is not to be
supposed that the enemy has selected
these plantations a 3 the scene of his
last great stand without good reasons.
The first and mo'st, apparent of these
is that the western landing is perhaps
the very best on the James river, and
the scene for miles up and down being
broad and deep, affords both excellent
sea room and anchorage for his gun
boats and transports. But this is by
no means the only advantage of the
position. On the west of Berkely are
innumerable impassable ravines, run
ning from near the Charles City roach
on the north to James river, snaking a
successful attack from that quarter
next to impossible. Within a quarter
of a mile of where these ravines begin,
Herring Bun creek crosses the Charles
city road, and running in a southeast
erly direction, skirts on the north and
east the plantations of Berkely and
Westover, and empties into James riv
er at the extreme eastern boundary of
the latter. The whole course of' this
creek is one impassable morass, while
along its northern and eastern banks
extend the heights of Evolington,
long range of hills that overlook the
Westover and Berkely estates, and
which offer an eligible position for hea
vy gnus.
" It will be seen that, protected on
the south by the river and his gun.
boats, on tho west by impenetrable ra
vines, and on the north and east by
llerring crock and the heights of Eve
lington, the enemy's position presents
but ono pregnable point, the. piece of
level country northwest of Westover,
from a quarter to a half mile in width,
lying between the head of the ravines
and the point where Herring creek
crosses the Charles City road. But it,
is certain that the enemy, with his im
mense resources of men and machine
ry, will, in a very brief period, obstruct
by art this only natural entrance to
his stronghold. Already it is within
range of his gunboats, and of his siege
guns planted on the Evelington hills.—
Another day may seo it strewn with
felled timber, and bristling with field
batteries. In enumerating the adyau
tages secured to the onetnyin his pres
ent position, his superior facilities of
transportation .must not he omitted.—
Whilst oar ammunition and stores
mut be wagoned a distance of nearly
thirty miles, his steamers and trans
ports are running up to the very doors
of his tent. For the benefit of the dis
tant readers, we may hero properly
say something of the character of the
country to which, suddenly and unex
pectedly, the scone of war has been
shifted. Ten days rLgo, when
beleagured Iliehmond, with the ex
ception of about five miles of the Chick
ahominy low ground, he occupied the
most barren, and at the same time, the
WOrSt, watered and mo:A, lillbellitby PO
pion of Eastern Virginia. Agues,
hooppoles, and whortleberries have
been always the only sure crops of the
country within t radius of ten miles
about the Seven Pines, taking that
point as a centre, and but two living,
streams cross the Nine-mile, or Wil
liamsburg roads, between Richmond
and Bottom Bridge. On these two
roads, with the Seven Pines as their
headquarters, the very pick and flower
of the Northern Army was concentra
ted, and here, for weeks, their vigor
and numbers melted away, under the
influence of miasma, bad water, and a
Southern sun, but by this hasty trip
through IVldte Oak Swamp, McClel
lan has emerged with thinned ranks
into a more genial 'land. A broad,
fresh river flows before him, while his
tired and hungry hordes will find
boundless supplies in as fidr and rich a
valley as the sun shines en. The eoun
try of the lower James river is the gar
den spot of Virginia. Nowhere does
soil better repay the toil and skill of
the husbandman."
The Examiner says to its own Gov
ernment: " There has already been
enough trifling and abuse of the public
mind by the suppression or reserve of
facts on the part of the Government.
If the Commanding General could
write a dozen lines, giving the result
of the fight at Gaines' Mills, why on
each succeeding day might we not
have had a bulletin of equal length
simply stating the results. It would
have cost but a trifle of time, and
would have conferred an incalculable
benefit upon the whole country in com
posing the public anxiety. if the first
official display of our success has not
been fully sustained by subsequent
events, and if the public expectations,
which were then raised to such a
height, are to be reduced, we believe
that our people can bear the disap
pointment, without waiting for the
facts to drop out through the slow and
forced confessions of those in authori
ty. If McClellan has effected a com
munication with the river, why was
not this fact boldly and sincerely an
nounced, instead of trifling with the
public mind by reports of surrounding
portions of his army in triangular
swamps and in the neighborhood of
mill-ponds, and other false and vague
stories, intended to break the fall of
public expectations ? The public is
loft under the impression of general
facts. We know that the valor of our
troops has so far prevailed, and that
the enemy has been pushed from his
lines of investment of this city, but
what may be the strength of the cohe
rent remnant of his army, whether
that remnant is yet involved by our
lines, or has escaped from our grasp, or
has been reinforced for another grand
battle, are questions which everybody
has been asking for the last week, and
which the Government plainly refuses
to answer by withholding from the
people all information whatever of the
battle of Richmond."
Upou the strait to which the rebels
arc now reduced, the Examiner says :
" The scene of active operations has
been removed to such a distance from
Richmond, that it is difficult to obtain
any news of the incidents of each day,
but from what is generally understood
of the situation, it appears to admit
only of the severe alternative of an
immediate assault upon the enemy, or
the falling back of our lines."
With reference to the continued dan
ger of Richmond, the Examine?. says :
" It is sincerely to be hoped that the
ability of our generals and the daunt
less courage of the Southern armies
will soon relieve this portion of the
State front the presence of the invader.
In them under Heaven is our only hope.
So long as the enemy holds undispu
ted possession of the lower James riv
er, so long is the capital of the Con
federacy menaced."
The Losses In Pryor's Brigade
" Out of about 1,500 men carried in
to action by Gen. Pryor, 814 were kil
led and wounded."
The Examiner thus heads its account
of General McClellan having secured
his desirable new position :
'• The Richmond Lines—The Enemy
on a New Line of Defence—it Critical
A Pestilence Dreaded In Richmond.
That a pestilence is dreaded in Rich
mond just now will be comprehended
from the following brief extract :
" The health of the city we fear will
suffer if some means are not employed
to neutralize the unhealthful effect
which so many hospitals in the city
and their surroundings must natural
ly produce. The spreading broadcast
around the hospitals and in the gut
ters of such disinfectants as lime, pot
ash, and plaster-of-Paris, would go a
great way to relieve us of even the ap
prehension of an epidemic. We be
lieve large quantities of lime are avail
able for such purposes. The early ap
plication of the hint may save us from
a pestilence more deadly than the bul
lets of the Yankees."
The Richmond Dispatch of Monday
says :
" The effective force of some of the
brigades now operating on the enemy
below this city is represented by those
who profess to be conversant with the
subject, as much curtailed, in conse
quence of the reprehensible practice
indulged by thoughtless soldiers stray
ing from their camps. A majority of
the men thus neglectful of their duty,
having no other place to go, come in
crowds to the city, where their imagi
nations are put in play to fill up col
umns of bloody battles which it is
more than probable that two-thirds of
the relators never saw. In this hour
of our destiny it behooves every sol
dier of the Republic to stand by his
colors, and not to do so is showing
both want of patriotism and a deficient
knowledge of the issues involFed
the present war. ,tt is to be hoped
that our generals will take such meas.
nues as will effectually- prevent our no
ble army from being demoralized by
the ia; ! ;iness of sprue of tbe. men .com
posing it. There is, just now, too
much at stake to permit this to be
thought of."
