HON. DAVID WILMOT.
The Manch Chunk (Carbon Co,) Gazette,
iu un urtiele relating to Senator Wilmot, says:
—" llis worst enemies are obliged to concede
to him honesty of purpose, end integrity of
character. As a member of the bar DAVID
WILMOT has few equals. He is an earnest
worker ; a powerful thinker and an able ad
vocate. Courteous to his opponents, itidefati
guablo in his industry, and prolific in resources
be wins the good opiuiou of both parties,
plaintiff and defeudaut.
As a Judge, no onedoubts his ability. His
legal acquirements are audi as eminently fit
him for the bench, and although considered a
leader of his party ; no oue never accused him
of allowing his political opinions or perjudices
to influence his decisions, lie carefully list
ens to the facts in each case which comes be
fore him, and to those l'ucts applies the rule
of law, and gives his decision as he believes
justice requires, regardless of persoual likes
ur dislikes, without fear favor or affection.
As a citizen he is universally respected.—
Generous to a fault, he is always liberal iu his
donations to every charitable project. Affa
blejiu his manners, and obliging in his disposi
tion, he has the confidence und respect of all
who knew him intimately.
As a statesman, he has aivvays been consist
ent and adhered to the same principles which
now actuate him. Ilis history is a part of the
history of our country ; and posterity will
point him out as oue of the few who have
never changed his principles for the sake of
The author cf the famous Wilmot Proviso,
he was feared by Southern politicians ; and
their allies iu the North waged unceasing- war
upon liirn, auti forced him for some years to
retire to private life.
The slave power could neither buy,uor force
him into the support of their measures, as he
preferred to be right, rather than to be the
holder of au oifice and be wrong. The people
of his judicial district knowing his worth anci
his abi! ties, placed him upon the bench, and
when the rebellion brol co.t and people began
better o appreciate his foresight and his wis
dom, l.c was elected by the legislature to fill
the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of
MR CAMEROX. Since taking his seat iu tl e
Senate, his course has beeneutirely in keeping
with his former well known principles. lie
has given his unqualified support to the Admin
istration in its efforts to put down this rebel
lion. He is never found absent from his seat,
when an importaut measure is to be voted up
au ; never shriuks from doing his duty, uo
matter how its discharge niny affect his politi
eal prospects in the future.
For the ability, integrity and industry with
which he has performed his work, Judge
W ii, MOT is entitled to the thanks of a loyal
B&T (JRAM) NEW NAVAE AND MILITARY MAY
OF THE I MTEIT STATES. —We have been shown
by Mr. M. F. FISIJER, agent fof this County,
a new and splendid map of the United Stales,
including all of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia,
the settled parts of the Canadas and British
Columbia, Mexico, all the Central American
States, and the West Indies. It claims to be
more complete aud valuable than auy map yet
issued \ while, with the expectation of a large
gale, it is placed at a less price than any recent
Map of equal value. Particular attentiou is
called to the following feature.?:
It contains the results of the recent topo
graphical County and State Maps maje from
actual surveys throughout the Northern states,
to a great extent as yet unpublished. As the
maps were made by surveying the roads by
course and distance, the results are of course
in the highest degree reliable.
b rom the Departments at Washington the
autoor hu9 i.td the most liberal access to re
cent Government maps. The levels of the
Pacific Railroad route are in advance of offi
cial publication, and the Western Territories
are faithfully delineated from Governmeut
maps, lhe admirable Coast Survev is the
basis of the coast hao.
lhe Southern States embrace the material
furnished to the Board of Trade by the Presi
deuts of every railroad iu the South just pre
\ious to the war, and now issued by request of
General McClellau, and distributed to the
military officers of the army and to the com
manders of the gulf squadron for Government
use. The seats of war will be found delineat
ed with especial care and fidelity.
While iu the body of the Geographical
portion this map challenges comparison with
auy map ever issued, io all the details of ac
curacy and execution that make a map valu
able, it preseuts additional attractions, and
new material showing the settlement of the
Western Territories, not to be found in any
other. The great subject filling the minds of
our citizens is the suppression of the present
unuatural rebellion, and it is around this thai
all public interests center. On this map will
be found portraits of the civil officers, the
heroes, and the martyrs of the war, iu a series
of thirty fine steel eugravings, embodied in a
new medalliou border.
The census is published in advance of the
Issue by the Department, and will be found of
great interest. Numerous additional statistics
have been added.
The Time Dial indicates the time at the
difllrcut cities of the Uuion when it is noon
at the Capitol ; in other words, the difference
iu time f. orn Washington. 13y this Dial the
difference i:i time between any two points of
the Union may be easily calculated, while the
number of miles cau be seen at a glance ou
the distance table.
The Level of the country through to the
Pacific Ocean is shown with the floor of the
Atlantic, on which it is proposed again to lay
the great Transatlantic cable.
To those having relatives or friends in the
great army of the Union —and who has not ?
—this map forms a present guide to the great
histoiioal events now being eLactcd, and a
most ornamental memorial of the suppression
of "The Great Rebellion of 1861." The
likenesses of those who have successfully sav
ed our honored institutions from destruction,
aud our country from anarchy, will here be
bauded down to the next generation.
This Map is furnished at the remarkable
low price of seven dollars, and no family
should be without one.
THE LATEST WAR NEWS.
The news from the seat of war iu Virginia
is exciting and satisfactory. The fighting
was renewed on Saturday betweeu General
Pope and the enemy, who had 'oeeu considera
bly reinforced. The battle was a severe one,
the rebels gaining the advantage and compell
ing General Pope to fall back to Centrevilie,
which lie did in good order. Franklin's corps
reached him at this point on Saturday even
ing, and General Sumner's division was rap
idly marching up to joiu him. lie was expect
ed to make at other assault on the enemy on
Monday morning, with the fresh troops thus
added to his army,but the latest reports stats
that there was very little fighting, not more
tbau an occasional skirmish. The position of
General Pope is represented as the strongest
in the vicinity of Washington. Rebel scouts
had penetrated as far as Langley's station, in
the vicinity of Chain Bridge, ou Friday ; but
it is said tbut all necessary precautions have
been taken to prevent a surprise of the capital
in that direction.
The disposition of our forces and the sever-
I al commands of onr Generals are officially au
| t.ouncea by the War Department to be as ful-
I lows :
Geu. Burnside commands his own corps, ex
cept those troops that have been temporarily
detached and assigned to Geu. Pope. Geucr
al McClelian commands that portion of the
Army of the Potomac that has been sent fo:-
ward to General Pope's command. Generl
Pope commands the Army of Virginia and all
tie forces temporarily attached to it. All the
forces are under the command ol Major Gene
ral llalleck, General in-Chief.
Our news from the West is important. Our
troops uuder Geu. Munson had a heavy brush
with the enemy near Rogersville,Kentucky,ou
Friday and Saturday, which resulted in heavy
loss ou both sides. Oar fourees were compelled
to fall back three miles and form anew line of
battle ou an elevated ground. The rebels fol
lowed, and after a severe artilery fight,turned
the riget ii nx of theF uiou force,who itnmedi
ately retreated. General Nelson having come
up endeavored to rally the men, but being
wounded at three o'clock in the afternoou the
troops again fell back to Lexington. The
number of rebels engaged in these actions was
between fifteeu and twenty thousand. Our
forces comprised sis infantry regiment and two
squadrons of cavalry, supported by artillery.
Generals Wright and Wallace have ieft Ciu
ciimati to reinforce the troops at Lexington.
Colonel Fitch, of the Sixty-fourth Indiana
regiment, in a letter to General Haileck,dated
from H dena, Arkansas, positively denies the
charge made by the rebel Genera! Lee that he
had hanged two citizens of the South, held as
hostages in his hands. lie says that, although
many of this class might have deserved such a
fate, none of them were submitted to it by his
FAY OF OURSOLDIKRS. —No soldiers in the
world were ever paid so liberally as those now
in the service of the L'nited States,|leavingout
of ths question the bounties paid them as re
cruits and the land donation which the govern
ment is sure to bestow npon tbera at the close
of the war. The soldiers of Rome, who con
quered the world, got eight cents a day. The
English soldiers only get a shilling a day,while
the French soldiers gets even less. The bounty
given to the American volunteer is nearly as
much as the earnings of an English soldier for
three years. This sum is earned by the Amori
CUD soldier the very day 1H! euhsts. The pay
given to our troops should, and we think will,
lead to a large emigration from Europe. At no
former time has the Model Republic offered
such magnificeut induceuieut to the man of
toil as at this very moment. The bounty,pay
and laud given to our troops make their earn
ings for the first year nearly six hundred dol
lars, which is equal to two dollars per day L
Any mau can lay up money now who wishes
to. There is no excuse for idleness. Till the
war is over such a thing as waut should be un
kuowu to any man in health.

The Grand Opportunity.
The following article from the Boston Jour
nal is to the point, and strikes with force.—
Youog meu, read it :
We ofteu think as we look on the multitudes
of hale young men, without families, who are
thronging our streets and tilling up every place
of amusement, whether they are eouscious that
in rejecting the invitations to join the army of
the Union, they are letting slip a grand op
portuuily for which they may feel deep regret
und chagrin hereafter. However they may
have dulled the sensibilities of youth, theu
hearts still warm at the memory of the great
ages and actious of the past. Can they read
the pages of Bancroft, Prescott, or Morley, or
the stories of the memorable epoch of Euglaud
aud France and not feel the wish that they,
too, had lived in the heroic times when immor
taPhonor was won? And can they noijsee that
precisely such limes are now passing around
them? Never in the history of this country,
at least, were there such abundant chances for
gaining honorable distinction as are now open
ed up to every young mau of strong arm and
clear head and of ambition fit for anything iu
And hereafter, when the Union shall have
risen redeemed aud renewed from this hup
tisui of blood, how will these delinquents feel ?
Will they want to rehearse to their children
any of the stirring passages of this drama
which will theu have almost supeieeded iu iu
tcrest the story of theUlevolution of '7O? "Did
}ou ever see a battle?" " What part of the
army were you iu ?" "W hat ? a miliiou of
soldiers called for, and you not go at all—
why ?" Who wishes, iu his declining years, to
face a battery of such questions ? But it is
not alone iu domestic circles that the heavy
penalty of present recreancy will have to be
paid. We may be sure that hereafter, in
polities, in business, aud iu the regards of the
community, a wide distinction will be drawn,
separating from all others the young man who
had no valid excuse for staying away from this
war and yet did so. Common rectitude und
common sense require that this should be so.—
\\ hat, tin country iu imminent peril and sav
ed only by the blood of thousands, yet those
who turned their barks upon her to be regard
ed as wel l as those who ran every ri.-k iu her
service? Never. Let no young mail delude
himself ou this point.
But we trust there will belittle or no d's
position to look at the matter lrom this nega
tive point of view. So far us volunteers are
concerned, they should come forward willing
ly stimulated by their ivuvicticLS and hopes,
rather than pushed or: by warnings aud fears
There is enough that is positive to allure men
into the ranks uow so rapidly ft ruling. Is any
one ambitious of merritcd honor '? All other
avenues are worthless compared to tins.—
Does any one desirij to be useful to tiie utmost
iu his day and generation ? Here is the patii
marked out for t;im beyond all mistake. Does
any one desire to strengthen all those qualities
which command success iu life? Where can
it be done so well as amid the responsibilities,
active duties, discipline and self reliance of tin
camp ? If the mau only has the light stuff
in him, a year or two's service in the' held
makes him twice as much of a man for nil the
ordinary pursuits and professions of life. But
there are hardships to be encountered. So
much the worse, than that you should deliber
ately throw them on the shoulders of others.—
But what are hardships to a live American ?
It is our glory tuat we have lived and th.ived
on them, and made them our benefactors.—
Shirking du'.y is about the hardest thing our
countrymen can ever undertake.
But death is found on the battle field. But
where is he not found ? He is the one una
voidable, inevitable enemy of our fives. Oi ail
the uncounted myriads of the human race, but
two have escaped his scythe, it is no use to
think ol eluding Lis presence, fur he would
| even go with us, and might even be piloting u
i into his very snares Tnink of what occurred
iu the family of ex Governor Briggs—the son
iias been in many battles and is yet safe, wane
the honored lather was kiiled by the uce'den
tal discharge of a gun in his own house. L ss
sinking but similar instances are all'around us.
But where can a brave man die better than on
the field of giorious service to his country ?
But the deaths in buttle are really few ; and
disease, wluth lias been much more destruct
ive, will henceforth be greatly mitigated by
increased experience and care. The season of
the year in which the new levies will take the
field and finish the rebellion, will be eunently
favorable. Ail things, iu fact, are now favor
able for enlistiueut Thousands of every con
dition and rank in life are coming forward, so
that every one can select his own comrades, ol
like characters, aud ol the same neighborhood.
They will give tone to all with whom they are
associated, thus escaping the evils which beset
ordinary camp life. They will carry with them
the sate guards of home,aud a generous rivalry
that will but strengthen and adorn the incen
tives of a soldier. Nothing, iu short, is now
wanting to the brilliant opportunity for useful
ness und distinction held out to the loyal young
men of America, but that they should accept
it iu the spirit of genuine patriots, and press
onward in the ennabling discharge of its
duties. Let none neglect it, for once passed
it w.ll never return.
Gov. CURTIN has been urging upon the
; President and Secretary of the Treasury the
> propriety of appointing disabled soldiers as
! collectors of the National tax. Iu every
| city, village aud township in the country
I caii be found men who have been incapaci
tated for service ia the field by wounds or
sickness, but who are fully capable of per
forming the duties of a tax collector. These
men can certainly present claims beyond
those of noisy politicians, who always en
deavor to secure the fat situations in the
gift of the Government and who are now
urging their claims by thousands. The men
j who cave lost health or bodily vigor iu the
' support of the country, are all, by claims of
right and justice, entitled to such a favor as
the Government can bestow iu return. For
the collection ot this tax, the people wiil be
called upon to support an immense army of
collectors, and we have no doubt that the
proportion required for Pennsylvania alone
would furnish situations for a majority of the
dilapidated veterans from the ranks of her
quota. The situations of assessors or collect
ors are eminently desirable, and those who
have dearly earned their rights to claim
them, should have that claim endorsed by

Tu Major-Gen 11. IV. Jlalleck, General-in-Chief :
As soon as I discovered that a large force
of the enemy was turning our rii?ht toward
Manassas, and that the division I hud ordered
to take post there, two days before, had not
yet arrived there from Alexandria, I immed
lately broke up my camp at Werrenton June
tion aud WurrentDD, aud marched rapidly
buck i three columns. 1 directed McDowell,
with his owu and Sigel's Corps and Ret.o's
Division, to march upon Gainesville,, by the
Warrenton and Alexandria pike ; Reno aud
one division of Hcintzlemau's to march on
Greenwich, and nth Porter's Corps ami
Hooker's Divisit I mrached back to Manas
sas J unction.
McDowell was ordered to interpose between
the forces of the enemy, which had passed
down the Manassas through Gainesville, and
his main body moving down from White Plains
through Thoroughfare Gap. This was com
pletely accomplished Longstreet, who had
passed thtough the Gup, being driven back to
the west side.
Tiiu forces to Greenwich were designed to
support McDowell in cuss he met too iarge a
force of the eneinj .
The division of Hooker, marching toward
Manassas, came upon the eneinv near Kettle
Run, iu Ihe afternoon of the 17th, and a sharp
uciiou, routed them completely, killing aud
wounding 300. capturing camps aud baggage
and many stand of arms.
This morning the command pushed rapidly
to Manassas Junction, which Jackson Lad
evacuated after three hours in advance. He
retreated to Cenlrtville, and took the turnpike
toward Warrenton He was met six uiiies
west of Centtvvlile by McDowell and 6igel
late this afternoon. A severe Bjiht took place,
which lias terminated by darku ss Tim enemy
was driven back at aii points, and titus the al

how the enemy is to escape without heavy
loss. We have captured 1,000 prisoners,
