HON. J. K. MOOREHEAD
There is no pleasure of all the pleasant du
ties which a journalist has to perform, equal to
that, in our opinion, of paying a just tribute of
respect to a faithful public servant or a patri
otic citizen. The public man who renders
himself most useful, is he who really devotes
himself most to the public interest, who enters
on his mission or his task, or his elected duty,
with the conviction, that the realization of his
personal schemes or aspirations is the least
which those who placed him in power expect at
his hands. Such a public servant is Hon. J.
K. Moorehead, Representative in Congress from
the 22d District in this state. In the discharge
of his duties as a Representative, he is perhaps
leas known to the masses of men of Pennsyl.
vania, than any other Representative in our
delegation, yet in the service of the interests of
the masses, he has been perhaps the most as
siduous and devoted of all in the same delega
tion. He is eminently a practical man. He
is better acquainted with• the great coal and
iron resources of Pennsylvania, than any man
in Congress. He has a better appreciation of
our agricultural pursuits than many who have
made them a science and a study—and yet he is
not before the people as a debator or an
a4itator, consuming time in that manner,
which would be beneficially d.•voted if con
sumed in attention to the public business.
At this time, while referring to Grneral
Moorehead, we desire more particulary to call
attention to the fact, of his great services to the
sick and wounded soldiers, citizens of Penn
sylvania, who are inmates of the hospitals in
the vicinity of Washington. As President of
the Pennsylvania Relief Association, General
Moorehead has ample opportunity to exercise
his benevolence and his energy in aid of the
soldier, and while all who are attached to that
Association are entitled to the gratitude of the
soldier and his friends, none more than Gen.
M., and few as greatly as he, have contributed
to the success of that Association. The sick and
wounded men, soldiers from Pennsylvania, who
are inmates of the hospitals located in the vi
cinity of Washington city, are indebted to Gen.
Moorehead for many of the comforts which bless
their weary hours of confinement and bring
relief to their suffering. Not to him alone,
however, but to him as he is the head of a
powerful organization which is daily doing good
in this particular under his direction. The
Pennsylvania Relief Association owes lie success
to all its members, and if we single out one of
these thus as in the case of Gen. Moore
head, and claim for him the credit which his
disinterested labors deserve, it is as much to
make honorable mention of the entire body as
to refer in fitting terms to its distinguished
—Pennsylvania is proud of the services which
Gen. Moorehead while in Congress has rendered
the entire state. While those services were
great and invaluable, the duty which he is dis
*barging to the sick and wounded soldiers will
win him equal credit and gratitude among the
masses of the old Keystone State.
CHANGES IN TEE CABINET.
With the whole country, wherever the tel
egraph could transmit the tidings, Harrisburg
haabeen intensified with the information that
important changes were to be made in the Cab
inet—that individual members had t'resigned—
that in fact, the President had determined to
reconstruct his body of legal advisers, and
call in others on whom he could rely with more
faith than it has been possible for him to do on
those by whom he is now surrounded. Such
were the rumors of the past few days. On
these all sorts of opinions have been based.
The fact that Secretary Seward had resigned,
seems to be undoubted; but in the face i of this,
it is alleged that the President will not accept
the resignation, and that. Mr. Seward will con
tinue to hold the portfolio of the State De
In this contest, individuitls are of small im
portance. The resignation of one man, or the
sacrifice of a dozen, if it actually contributes
to the success of the loyal cause, can do no
great injury in any other direction. And yet,
men, that is certain men are essential to success,
as that may be contributed by their absence or
presence in the work in which the nation Is
now engaged. If any man has seen fit to re
sign, he certainly would not have done so, un
less he was convinced that the act would ben
efit the country. If his resignation was brought
about by other considerations—if he was in
duced to act from pride or personal resentment,
he is no patriot. Fur the first reason the re
signation of a member of the Cabinet should
be accepted with respect—and if made on th e
other motive, it should be received with scorn,
and the secretary at once relieved.
And yet, while we thus point to the resigna
tion of cabinet officers, and seek to treat such
changes as•of no particular importance in com
parison to the merits ' of our cause, one thing
must be remembered. The people of the loyal
data wild have to unite—THEY MUST TORM A BOLIN
• UNION, BASED ON A PURPOSE TO PUT DOWN THE RE
BILLION, ORTHE LEADERS OF THAT REBEL,
LION WILL CONQUER AND HOLD AS DE
PENDENTS EVERY FREE COM AION WEALTH
1N THE UNION. However we may blame our
reverses on the Cabinet—however we may in
dulge in cheap indignation against individuals
in power—however we may denounce one plan
to " bag the rebelk" and applaud another di-'
plomatic scheme to achieve peace by an argu
ment or a stroke of the - pen—the real sober fact
in regard to our reverses may be traced to pub
lic opinion in the loyal states, to the bickerings,
the distrusts, the jealousies, and the opposition
of professed loyal men to the govenunent. We
ate not united, and until we are, disaster and
defeat are bound to attend our efforts to put
down the rebellion. The Presiders > ayelecon
struet his Cab net every month-administrations
may change—new leaders may be created for
our. armies—and still the case will be the same,
the same hopeless frustration will attend our
efforts, unless union and fellowship and confi
dence prevail among the people.
Whatever may be the changes in the Cabi
net, it must not alter our devotion to the coun
try. It is the cause of the Government and
not, the individuals representing that govern
ment, to which we owe allegiance. That cause
must be supported,it matters not in whose hands
it is placed for direction. Such, at least, is
our conception of our own individual duty.
—Since the above was written, the telegraph
has informed us, that all the idifEculties in re
gard to the Cabinet, have been adjusted, that
the resignations tendered have been withdrawn,
and the Cabinet will remain as first constructed.
We accept the fact as evidence of a good feel
ing and a good understanding among those in
power. We do not believe that a change would
assist our cause. What we want is union
among the people of the loyal states. When
this is gained, the end of rebellion will be at
A LESSON ON INDEPENDENCE.
One of the beet lessons on the'sgbjeot of inde
pendence which has yet been taught the Repub
lican party, is that which is inculuatca 1 , 5 'he
present action of Hon. Joseph Bailey, a member
of Congress from this state. At the last election
Mr. Bliley was repudiated F T the leaders of his
own party, and another more radical in Demo
cracy than he nominated for Congress. The
personal friends of Mr. Bailey lathe Democratic
party clung to him, and succeeded in bringing
him before the people as an independent candi
date. In the contest which followed, he would
have been defeated, had not the Republicans
and Union men of the district rallied to his
support. That support was not given merely
as a personal compliment to Joseph Bailey. The
loyal men of his district did not vote for him as
a means of distracting or dividing the Demo
cratic party, or of aiding Mr. Bailey to gratify
his personal ambition. The support was given
on the understanding that he, Bailey, would act
with consistency thereafter, and use his position
in aiding the cause of loyalty to triumph over
that of treason. But in this, those who sup
ported Jo seph Bailey have been wofully mis
taken—disappointed and deceived. Instead of
honorably responding to the sentiment which
sustained him at the late election, and manfully
fulfilling the obligation to his country and "to.
principle, which he then contracted, Mr. Bailey,
on all test questions, votes with the Vallandig
hams and Biddies of the House. He absolutely
and positively ranges himself in opposition to
the very principle which secured him snob a
glorious vindication itt the late election.
' This is a lesson to hOnest men. A lesson
alike to ourselves and to our Republican breth
ren in Bailey's district. In good faith, the loyal
men of that district' voted for Bailey in opposition
to Glossbrenner. In perfect reliance on his
loyalty, Mr. Bailey was supported by the Repub
licans. With a moral understanding that he
would support those who were and, are defend
ing the nation against rebellion, the Republi
cans refused to make a -nomination, and in a
'body rallied to his election. What has been
the result? Let the proceedings of Congress
answer, and let this lesson be a lasting one to
the Republican party. Such, at - least, it will
be to us:
ILLE UNION MOVEMENT IN TENNESSEE.
The growth of Union sentiment in Tennessee
is receiving a decided impetus in consequence
of the orier by Governor Johnson, for an elec
tion of Representatives in Congress, from the
Nashville and Memphis Congressional Districts.
The Union men are encouraged to avow,them
selves, and ' he adherents of secession are pro
portionately discouraged. Gen. Grant's Suc
ceases in Mississippi, are gradually assuring
both parties that the days of the rebellion are
numbered, anh there hi an increasing conviction
on one side and confidence on the other, 'that
the rebel armies will never return to Western .
Tennessee, unless as prisoners of war. Matters
are, therefore, rapidly assuming a stable order,
and under_ the protection afforded by the ar
miss of the Union, the loyal 'citizens ate pre
paring to avail themselves of the clemency of
the Administration. An earnest and enthusi
astic Union meeting .was held at Trenton in.
Gibson county; a .few days ago, at which rem.
lutione of an earnestly loyal and patriotic char
acter were adopted. We have now before us a
band-bill, calling a similar meeting at Bolivar,
in Hardeman county, which as a matter. of
curiosity and an evidence of Tennessee Union
ism we , present:

•The Advanced Value of Gold.
Taxes for the °matinn of a Sinking lend, are more
Injurious to a People, than Taxation for any other
The taxes a man pays toward the interest on
government loans, he ordinarily is compensaW
for, by the increase of the national capital which
the loans produce, as we have already shorin ;
but the taxes which he pays towards a sinking
fund, are injurious, not only in themselvl t ea,
but in diminishing the national capital. . Oply
one mitigation exists to such injuriousness,• And
it arises from the increased value, that enay

ample of this, when President Jackson volUn
tarily extinguished, by payment, the 8 per
cent. United States stock of the revolutionary

being 30 or 40 per cent. below par ; buthe
rise was partly attributable to the known &p
-preach of a speedy liquidation of the whole at

and to the extent of its operation, tax paying

HMADQUARTBRA ARMY OF THI POTOMAC, }
To ifiVor General IL W. Balled, General-in-Chiif
Il S. A., Washington:
Germwal:—l have the honor to offer the fol
lowing reasons for moving the Army of the
Potomac across the Rappa hannock sooner tha
was anticipated by the resident, Secretary ot
Waior yourself, and for crossing at a point
different from the one indicated to you at Our
last meeting at the President's:
During my preparations for crossing at the
place I bad first selected, I discovered that the
enemy had thrown a large portion of his force
down the river and elsewhere, thus weakening
his defences in front ; and I also thought I dis
covered that he did not anticipate the crossing
of, our whole force at Fredericksburg, and hoped
by rapidly throwidg the whole command over
it that place to separate, by a vigorous attack,
the forces of the enemy on the river below
from the forces behind and on the crest, and in
the ,rear of the town, in which case we could
fight him with great advantage in our favor.
To do this we had to gain a height on the
extreme right of the crest, which height com
manded a new road lately made by the enemy
for the purpose of more rapid communication
along hie lines,wbich point gained, his position
along the crest would have been Scarcely tena
ble, and he could have been driven from them
easily by an attack on his front in commotion
with a movement in the rear of the crest.
How near we came to accomplishing our:ject future reports will show. But for the fog d
unexpected and unavoidable delay of building
the bridges, which gave the enemy twenty four
hour more to concentrate his forces in his
strong positions, we would almost certainly
have succeeded, in which case the battle would
have•been, in my opinion, far more decisive
than if we had crossed at the places first select
ed ; as it was, we came very near success.
Failing in accomplishing the main object,
we remained in order of battle two days, long
enough to decide that the, enemy would not
come out of his strongholds to fight us with
his infantry, after which we recrossed to this
side of the river unmolested, 'Without the loss
of men and property.
As the day broke our long linesof troops were
seen marching to their different positions as if
going on parade. Not the least demoralization
or disorganization existed.
To the brave officers and soldiers who accom
plished the feat of thus recrossing in the face of
the enemy, I owe everything. For the failure
in the attack I an responsible, as the extreme
gallantry, courage and endurance shown by
them was never excelled, and would have car
ried-the points had it been possible.
To the families and french] of the dead I can
only offer my heartfelt sympathy, but for the
wounded I can offer my earnestprayers for their
comfort and filial recovery`
The fact that I decided to move from War
renton on to this line rather against the .
of .the President, Secretary and yourself, and
that you have left the whole movement in my
hands without giving me orders, makes me the
I will visit you very . soon and .give you more
definite information, and finally will send you
my detailed report,in which a special acknowl
edgment- will be made of the Services of the
different grand divisions, corps, and my genmal
and personal staff departments lig the Army of
the Potomac, to whom I am much indebted for
their support and hearty cooperation.
I will add here that the movement was made
earlier than you expected, and after the Presi
dent, Secretary and yourself requested me not
to be in haste, for the reason that we were
supplied much sooner by the different staff de
partments than wee anticipated when I last

about 9,000, cmr prisoners about 900, which
have been paroled and exchanged for about the

under a flag of truce. . • .
