wis swiftly followed by the sad and totally un.
expected intelligence of his death. He died on
Sunday afternoon last, May 18th, 1862, at I
o'clock, at the Brady House in Harrisburg, of ty
phoid fever and dysentery, contracted by the es-
Owe of camp life, while in the service of his
Hmit Kane was the oldest son of Den
neville Seim, Esq., late Mayor of Rending. Ho
was born in this city, Jane 238, 1813, and at the
time of his death was aged 48 years, 10 months
and 24 days. He was educated at the Military!
Modesty at Mount Airy, near Philadelphia;
which in its day was justly celebrated as one of
the foremost educational institutions in the
United States. After graduating with honor, he
entered the eonnting•house of his father, then
at-the head of one of the largest mercantile
houses in Reading, and applied himself to the
business to which be afterwards succeeded as
partner with two junior brothers. His early
military training gave him a taste for military
pursuit*, and he found a field for its gratification
in the Volunteer service of the State. From the
position of a Lieutenant in the corps of Wash.
ington Grays, he rose in rank, step by step, and
held successively the commissions of Captain,
Illeeor, Brigadier General, and Major General of
the Fifth Division Pennsylvania Volunteers, in
all which amen he won and maintained an hen-
orable reputation. His services in organising
our local Militia, and bringing them under prop
er system and discipline, were indefatigable and
valuable, and placed them in the very front rank
of our Volunteer Soldiery. He held the office of
Major General at the breaking out of the Re
bellion, and in that capacity was appointed by
Governor Ctutin to a command of State Troops
under the first requisition of the President of the
VaitedStatee, and served with General Patter

Placed at half-mast, an d muffled in crape, and
while the procession was moving through the
c ity, the bells of the Churches and the Court
House were tolled, and all the houses along the
route were closed. Minnie guns were also fired
from an eminence near the Cemetery, while the
funeral was in progress.
The Harrisburg Patriot mentions an incident
connected with the last hours of Gen. Knit,
which may be added here, without impropriety :
"While laboring under the delirium of fever, he
still fancied himself upon the field, and gave the
necessary orders to his division, while in his
lucid moments he was anxious to know all the
movements of the Army."
The House of Representatives, on Wednesday,
t yid on the table, by a large majority, Senator
,iumner's bill to allow negroes to carry the
mails of the United States, which passed the
senate about a month ago. This was done in
pursuance of the recommendation of the House
Committee on Post Offices and Post Roads. Mr.
Colfax, (Republican) of Indiana, gave the rea
sons of the Committee for their action, and these
were briefly as follows
"Not a single person of any color, froni any
State, had ever petitioned for this repeal. No
Postmaster. General had ever recommended it--
no public opinion demanded it. It would not
only allow negroes to be mail contractors, and
therefore officers of the Government, but Indi
ans and Chinese also. It would impair the se
curity of the mails, for, in some States, blacks,
Indians and Chinese are not allowed to testify
against whites. and, If robbed while in their
hands, we could not procure legal testimony, as
now, of the mail carriers, against the robbers.
It would also allow slaveholding contractors to
use their slaves as mail-carriers for them, instead
of free whites, wham they are now compelled to
employ, and money would thus be paid out of
our Post Office treasury for the labor of slaves,
which is now impossible ; and, as this bill could
not, even indirectly, aid in crushing out this Re-
bellion, which he thought the main duty of Cott
grese, ar crippling the power which sustains this
treason, a large majority of the Post Office Com
mittee concurred with him in recommending that
it do not pass."
This pregnant paragraph is not only a forci
ble vindication of the action of the Committee
and the house, but it exemplifies in a signal
manner the crude and visionary nature of nearly
all the legislation devised by the Senator from
Massachusetts, in his effort to make the negro
question the paramount object of Congressional
, Judge Woodward, of the Supreme Court, ren
dered en important decision this morning, in de
claring the entire Army Vote, cast at the last
election, unconstitutional. The following cases
were before the Court, on which decisions were
rendered, via t
The Commonwealth vs. Joseph Sunman.—Error
to Philadelphia. Opinion by Woodward, concur
ring opinion by Reed. Judgment affirmed.
in re contested election of District Attorney for
Luzerne county. Certiorari to Quarter Sessions
of said county. Opinion by Woodward, Thomp
son dissenting.
In the first case, a person was prosecuted in
Philadelphia dill for illegal voting at the late
election, while he was in the service of the coun
try as a private soldier. The defendant's coun
sel argued before the trial was bad, that the
indictment should be quashed far roma that the
whole army vote was unconstitutional. This
view of the case was sustained by the Judges of
the Court, and the indictment quashed. The
Supreme Court sustains this decision.
The second case came before them from Lu
zerne county, in which county, the candidate for
District Attorney, Mr. Chase, who bad a majority
in the county, but was defeated by the army
vote, took an appeal. His opponent was declared
elected by the return judges, and the Court of
Luzerne county suatained that decison. The
Supreme Court, however, decides the army 1 , 449
unconstitutional, and declares Mr. Chase elected.
This decision will make some important
changes in several officers elected at the last
election.—Harrisburg Telegraph, May 22.

a. Secessionist. as any to be found in South Caro
lina. Now, as much as these Disunionists of
both classes abuse each other, they neverthe
less both unite in laying violent hands upon the
Government that never harmed either. If I
*ere an Abolitionist, I would break up the Uni
ion ; for the disruption of the Union must, inevi
tably destroy and obliterate slavery. Hence we
are for the prosecution of this war to save the
Government as founded by our fathers for re
storing the Constitution as we received it with
out regard to the peculiar institutions of any
State. That a Secessionist and an Abolitionist
are orka par, I can prove by a wimple syllogism
—an. abolitionist is a disunionist ; a disunionist,
is a secessionist ; therefore a secessionist is an
abolitionist."—[Eton. Andy Johnston's Speech, at
Columbus, Oct. 1861.]

make no apology for this wicked effort in the
South to destroy the Government. We grant the

the same political grave."
Roen 14,w.—A road case was tried in the
Court of Chester county, which, being of gene
ral interest, we copy. The supervisors of New
London township ordered the land owners to re
move their fences, and widen the road. One of
hem having refused, the supervisors proceeded
to throw down his fences. The owner of the
land protested against it, had the fence put up
again In the old place, and was prosecuted for
obstructing the highway. The Court charged
the Jury that if the supervisors were authorized
to open the road the width of 33 feet, and if the
owner of the lend had placed any obstructions
thereon, he was accountable to the law. Ver
dict guilty. The defence offered evidence to
show that the road was only &local road ; that it,
was a n w id e an was necessary, that the public
opinion in the .towaship sympathized with the
defendant; and other mitigating circumstances;
but the Court refused to entertain these pleas,
and said the solo subject far the Jury was, wheth
er the highway of 33 feet width had been ob
structed. .

We published, last week, an extraordinary Or
der, purporting to have been issued by General
Hunter, commanding the Military Department
of the South, declaring martial law over the
States of Georgia, Florida, and South Caroli
na, and pronouncing the slaves in those States
" forever free." It came too late for us to Make
any comments upon it, but its presumptuousness
was so great that we were almost persuaded to
doubt its genuineness. Indeed, it was so flagrant
an assumption of arbitrary and unauthorized
power, that the newspapers generally, with the
exception of the New York Tribune and others of
the ultra abolition stamp, denounced it. The
President's Proclamation, therefore, repudiating
this Order, and declaring it " altogether void,"
was a great relief to the conservative people of
all parties, who saw in it another, and by far
the most dangerous advance that has yet been
made toward the accomplishment of the revolu
tionary designs of the abolitionists—the prose
cution of the war for the extermination of slave
ry, in violation and at the saoriflce of the Con
stitution and laws. The prompt and decisive
manner in which the President has condemned
the act of General Hunter, has gratified and at
the same time surprised us ; for, in view of the
recent course of the Administration, which seem
ed to indicate that it was drifting rapidly into
the extreme of abolitionism, we were led to fear
that General Hunter, in his sweeping pronunola
mento against the local institutions of three
States of the Union, was only obeying instruc
tions from Washington. But, we are glad to con
fees one mistake; and as we have been free to
censure the President for his several late propi
tiatory offerings to the foul abolition spirit, we
now just as freely accord to him all the praise
that hie repudiation of an Unauthorized and un
constitutional out deserves. It is to lie regretted,
however, that he aid not at once remove all
the doubts as to the designs of the Administra
tion with respect to slavery in the States, which
have been the cause of so much uneasiness in
the minds of all true friends of the Union, by a
bold and unequivocal declaration that he pos
sesses no power, either as President, or as
Commander-in-Chief, to free the slaves of any
State, and that, in no event, will he attempt to
exercise it. This would have been nothing more
than the utterance of a plain truth, and a pledge
et fidelity to Blom duty. The President, when
acting as Commander-in-Chief of the Army and
Navy, does not become a Dictator, nor is he cloth
ed with any extraordinary power. He can do no
more, in hie military capacity, than he can se a
civil ruler. All his powers are derived from the
Constitution, which he hoe sworn to obey, and
he cannot transcend them without becoming a
perjurer and an usurper. We need not say—for
every man of ordinary intelligence knows it—
that there is not a line or syllable in the Consti
tution that, either directly, or by the most re
mote implication, gives the President or any of
ficer or department of the Federal Government
the power to abolish Slavery in the States, or in
any wise to interfere with it. Ent, in the face
of this positive restriction of the fundamental
law, the President, while declaring ea, Bunter's
abolition edict null and void, reserves to himself
the decision of the question whether it be com
petent for him to do what he says his subordinate
has n 9 authority for doing; and thus he levee
the public—and especially the loyal people of the
slave-holding States, in painful doubt and anxi
ety as to what he may undertake to do himself,
at a future time. Is not this reservation an in
timation that he may possibly attempt the exer
cise of a power the Constitution does not give to
him? The assumption that a necessity may
arise, making the exercise of this power WM*
penettble to the maintenance of the Government,
is altogether an imaginary thing. No necessity
can arise which would justify Executive usurpa
tion ; for when a Constitutional Government
transcends its authority, it destroys itself by
that very act. The usurper is even more guilty
than the rebel. The latter merely resists lawful
authority, and may be compelled to obey it; but
the former deliberately abrogates it, and makes
his irresponsible will supreme.
The President repudiated the ides of emanci
pation as "a military necessity," when it was
advanced In Pretnont's Proclamation, and Cam
eron's War Report. Why did he hesitate to go
the same length in the present case ? Must the
country yet remain in uncertainty as to whether
the War is to be prosecuted for Its only lawful
objeot—the maintenance of the Union—or for
the revolutionary and destructive purpose of
abolishing slavery ?

of the illustrations and the reputation of the

illustrated articles, which are followed by the

For the Reading Gazette and Democrat
The "Journal" vs. Lehigh County.
Air. Editor:
Allow me a small space in the columns of your
paper, not to display my ingenuity in writing,
[or such claim none, as these imperfect lines
will show, but rather to vindicate the truth.
The editor'of the Reading Journal, in the issue
of the 17th inst.,informs his readers that " It is
a crime in . Lehih county for a Democratic can
didate to be too much of a Union man.' He co
sympathize with the traitors as much as he
pleases, and do all in his power to make the
government unpopular with the people, but he
mustn't be too strong for the Union. Mr. Wm. S.
Mara, of Allentown, a Douglas man, was_thrown
over-board by the Democrats of that county last
Saturday, because be was ' too much of a Union
man.' Stiles, a Breekinridger, was nominated, be
cause he is not particular on that subject,"
NOW, 01ty lnan of common sense knowe this to
be false. The Democratic party of Lehigh-boun
ty, in connection with the Democratic party
throughout the loyal States,:has always been for
tlui maintenance of the Union. These very men
who now accuse the Democratic party of sympa
thizing with the traitors, were not always so
much in lore with the Union and the Govern.
anent. They used to speaklightly of the Union,
and talked of "letting it slide" in certain con,
tingencies,. and denominated all men who were
solioiteuS far the future of the country, as "Union
savere,"—a phrase to *Melt they attached
collar degree of odium.
" Mr. Marx was thrown over-board because
be was too rnueh of a Union man. Stiles, a Break
inridger, nominated because he is not particultir
on that subject !" This is nothing new. In 1860;
when *Dr. Cooper was nominated at. Orefield,
scarcely was the nomination announced, .whan
some of the opposition went to Allentown and
telegraphed to the New York Tr/Wits and other
papers who were willing to let one hundred'
Unions perish, rather' than give °ostrich of the
Chicago platform, that Dr. Cooper-was a support
er of 13reckinridge. was then current
that he WM" nominated because his opponent at
the Convention, Mr. Stiles, was a Douglas man.
Now, Mr- Stiles is nominated, • and in turn is a
Dreckinridgerl Their only object then was to
divide the party, and such is their object again.
Theylailedlo do it in 1860, and they will fail
again in 1862. •
I know both Win. B. Marx:and JohnD. Stiles
personally. „In 1860, I heardthem address more
than one .meeting, I remember yet that at one
time they 'both spoke at ; Guthsville from the
same stand, and declared hemselves as Douglas'
man. Even admitting that Stiles was a supporter
of Breekiaridge, that does not prove that "he is
not particular on that subject," as the Journal
• The editor of the Journal has got in the habit
of calling 'every. Democratic candidate a Breck
inridger, and thereby thinks to infuse a ;pertain
degree of hatred. in the people.. Breckinridge is
"not the only man that has diadardecl 'Democratic
principles, We have such men in our own State.
We have only to examine the record of. Forney
and Rickman, and others who are noir the , lead
ers of that sectional party who have caused the
Union to be "rent by civil feuds and drenched
in fraternal' biota."
For my part, I: should be willing to let the
journal proceed in its usual way, for so far it
has caused not much harm and I have since ob
served that the sun still rises in the East and
sets in the WOO, and if we live 'fill next week we
shall hear of a glorious Democratic victory—the
Journal to the contrary notwithstanding—in old
