The daily otrenditures of the Gov

IL!. Chase to be 11.4,000,000 per day,
in face he says thif that sum "will
kardly be auffiCient." Tully $5,000,
' 'ooo per day would be nearer the act
ual sum. Is it any wonder, that,
with our thousands slain daily, and
cur substance consumed at such an
awful rate, for purposes almost en
tirely at variance with its original
announcements, that the people are
becoming tired of this state of affairs,
and rapidly concentrating their hearts
- and minds for a change of adminis
lration and policy ?

se. It is announced froth Wash
ington, by =abolition correspondents,
that •the war 'cannot be ended this
year; that it - May Continue a year or
two longer—cortaioly'till the summer
of 1865,—honce, that altraft for two
hundred thousand men will be called
for in a few days or weeks, =and •an
other call for three hundred thousand
more next winter ! Such announce
ment are very refreshing this warm
weather—calculated to induce the
people to desire campaigning in the
"sunny south."

flow *rum ttx.-4,1 story was
started by the Philadelphia Inquirer,
last week, that liostby had g9t lierth
of the Potomac with his vavalry, and
w.afisk,C.tuAherlawl valley. The ab
olition, .papers,'lrave now the impu
&glee to _say that -tike dopperheade

fronr'house=tops, as it were, and,
'same time, slandering and
threatening their neighbors, who will
not shut their eyes or mouths to the
rascality; incompetency and treason
in the land. The New York Evening
Post has been one of the loyalest of
the "loyal." It indulged, to the
heart's contentoof the bitterest aboli
tionist in tho land, in the terms "cop
perheads," "sympathizers," and "trai
tors." It furnished more texts to the
abolition papers, abusive of the de
mocracy, than any other paper, not
even excepting Greely and his very
"loyal" Tribune.
Now note the sequel. On Tuesday
last, Mr. Henderson, publisher of the
Evening ,`'Post, and Navy Agent at
New Yark city, was arrested by Mar
shall Murry; on the serious charge of
fraud, bribery; the transmission of
false vouchers, &,e., involving a very
large sum of money.
It must not be supposed that the
administration at Washington wai
ignorant of the frauds perpetrated at
New York,
,particularly by.3.t.'Hen
'derson, or that ft immediately
rested hires when the facts became
known, as the "loyal" journals over
the country are apt to apologise.—
The administration has known of
these frauds for months; the whol6
public knew of them. Senator Grimes
openly, in the U. S. Senate, made ref
erence to them in a speech several
mo,ntlis ago. Bat it Was Only ' last
Week, when Mr. Turlow Weed, of the
Albany Evening Journal, a prominent
and powerful leader of the Abolition
ists, brought the .subject out tin his
paper, that the stop alluded to—the
arrest of. Hr. Henderson—was order

Our soldiers are sacrificed on the

We perceive that the abolition pa
pers, with their lanai - dishonesty and
deception, are placing at their edito
rial heads, the following announc
meats :
"For the amendment of the Constitu
tion granting the soldiers the right to
vote," &c. ,„
Now, in the first place, there is no
such amendment to be voted for.—
The proposed amendment is to give
qualified electors in military service,
the right to vote away from the polls
where they are already entitled to
vote. .The abolition papers take it
for granted that soldiers are fools,
and that they cannot see- tho,pre
tended friendship displayed for them
for no other purpose than .simply do
obtain their votes. Why don't they
appeal to the - soldiers' judgment and
sense of i;ight for his influence and
support, instead of thus attempting
to deceive him. - They would make
the soldiers believe, by their announce
ments, that they would procure them
the right to vote, whereas, the amend
ments have no reference to that ob
ject at all. No soldier, not entitled
to vote when at home, will be pet
mitted-, legally, to vote when in the
fold"at the doming 616441'6n5, rici Mat
ter how the election turns out, or
what the promises of the abolitionists
may be.
In the second place, ticy would
make it appear that the democrats
are "opposed to giving soldiers the
right to' vote." This is another de
ception-they are attempting to prac
tice' urn the soldiers. As ,we said
before Me 'amen dmen ts avnot involve
that quostton Ve 'vivo no
doubt there Democrats, 'and
others, Who would objeet to hawking
the•ballot-bones of Pennsylvania all
over the county, gathering up the
vote of !lily body 'and eVerYbOdy,
whether entitie l d or not, lant whb have
no objections whatever to giving sol
diers all the facilities necessary to
cast their votes when entitled to do
so: The Democratic party never yet
attempted to deprive anybody of his
legal rights, much less that ofsuffrage,
as did the abolitionists in 1554 and
1855, when. they attempted to deprive
our adopted citizens of •their right to
'Vote. If the foqire knew tiEed,t, tue
abolition Legislature of this state in
tended to'pe - tis a fair and just law pro
scribing the regulations under which
the voting is to be chine, there would
probably not bo a single vote against
the proposed amendments. As it is
people will exorcise their judgment
in 'the 'lnattdr.
ma. The repeal of the $3OO column
tation clause in the conscription act,
as recommended by kr. Lincoln, is
still being acted on in Congress. The
House at first refused to repeal it by
a decided vote, but the Senate, in ac
cordance with the bidding of its mas
ter, Old Abe, put it through flucking.
"'hell:louse is now endeavoring to re
consider itslctiiitOndlt is'intbable

The poor man will then, of eourso,ihe

man remember that it is Abe Lincoln
who recommended the repeal of the
s3oo.clause, and that it is at his bid
ding that Congress, is repealing it.
