THE PEOPLE'S worm FOR FM7CRST,
FRIDAY EVENING, MARCO. 11, 4864.
Personal and Political.
It is alleged that- the - friends very indis=
creet friends—of General :Fremont now pro
pose to bring him forward as a candidate - for
President without reference to the I.Jnion Na
tional Convention; and that to this end mass
convention has been called at Cleveland, en
the 10th of May next, hoping thereby to fore
stal the legitimate actiem of the party in ilnne.
This would be worse than folly—worse even
if possible, than southern treason—much
worse than the vilest form of Copperheadhun
No doubt the loyal masses would have rallied
in favor of Mr. Lincoln if it had-been deemed
best not to call a National' Convention; but
since such a convention has been called by
the proper committee, it is manifestly'he
bounden duty of every true Union man to de
termine to abide by its decision.
no hesitation in pledging to its nominees for
President and Vice President the hearty sup
port of the TELEGRAPH, whoever they maybe,
taking it for granted that they will, in their
character and principles, faithfully represent
the loyal sentiment of the country, and stand
pledged to the complete suppression of the
rebellion and the carrying out of Abraham
Lincoln's glorious emancipation proclamation.
In order that the friends of Fremont may
see how suicidal is the course which they
have adopted, in thus avowing a determina
tion to run their - favorite without regard to
the decision of a Convention, we need only
refer such as these to the fiendish gratifica
tion with which their course ie regarded by
the copperhead press. The Tory Organ, this
morning, fairly gloats over the idea of seeing
dissension and schism . produced intthe ranks
of the Union men. This fact, alone, should
prOve the utter folly of attempting to distract
the Union organization of the country.
The announcement that Secretary Chase
has declined to be a candidate for the Presi
dency, is a reoognition of the preference of
the people for another distinguished 'states
man, which does the great Premier infinite
honor. Mr. Chase has a duty to perform to
his country, from which his wisdom and patt
riotism will never permit him to swerve—and
however the desire of the great mass of the
people may be to place others in a more ex
alted position, no man connected with the
GoVernment since its first organization, will
occupy a brighter page in history then the
present Secretary of the Treasury.
The Erie Gazette, referring to the organiza
tion of the Senate, says that George W. pfam
eraleiy, Chief Clerk, is confessedly without a
.superior in his line in the State. ,The severe
labor , which devolied upon Col. EfamorslY i
during the protracted straggle for the organi
zation of the Senate, and the singular ability
with which he discharged his duty, have
added largely to a reputation which is already
very great as a parliamentarian and -legisla
tive OffiCar. .
Opinion in England with regard to General
Butler appears to be undergoing a change.
The London Spectator' concludes a review of
"Parton's Life of Butler," as follows: "This
biography leaves on our minds no doubt that
the Union possesses in Gen. Butler a man of
rare• and original capacity, extraordinarily fitted
for constructive administration, and without
any tendency to cruelty, though with that in:
difference to the feelings of others:so often
marked in very strong men. Of. all the men
who fill our European history, the one he is
most like—strangely like—is Frederick the
Tn 4 Dauphin Journal says that the speech
delivered in the House of Representatives on
the 24th ult. by Hon. E. C. Allemma, on the
resolution proposing to require proofs of loy
alty from persons claiming payment for dam
ages by the rebel raid, was, perhapi, the most
dignified and logical, delivered on the occa
sion, and in point of ability, far exceeded the
expectations of his most sanguine friends,
and. the citizens of old Dauphin nay well feel
proud of their Representaliie. Hon. A. has
already made his mark (in his maiden speech)
in the Legislature, and is looked upon by his
constituents as the rising young rnan. of Dau

Are the Copperheads Loosing their
We occasionally hear a good, easy Union
man; in the charity and franknes; of his
soul, declare that the Copperheads are not as
bad as some people represent them to be; and
that if "let alone," the opposition would sup
port the policy of the Government to' crush
rebellion. The Union man who thus delivers
himself generally claims to be a conservative.
It will_be recollected that the "conservatives,"
at tfib breiking out of the rebellion, were very
anxious that the people of the South should
be-."let alone," until they had discovered their
error,.repented and returned to the Union.
In order to show the conservative Union men
of the country, the attitude occupied, the sen
timents entertained by some of the Copper
heads in position in the Legislative branch of
the Government, we cordially invite the reader
to glance with us at some utterances made in
Congress lately, by one Chilton A. White, an
Ohio Vallandighamer. The scene is graph
ically described by a Washindton correspond
ent of the ssouri Democrat. This Chilton
A. White is not known to fame, but he is
known in Ohio politics, where he is consider
able of a fish—of the "cyttle" kind. Chilton
maks no bones of being oppose - a
to the war,
in toto. He thus makes out his position,
which, to do him justice,. is clearly stated:
"The people of the South have fired and
settled.prineiples of political action, to which
they are strongly attached by tradition, by
-education, and from a deep and settled con
*lotion, the maintainanee of which they be
lieve to be essential to their rights, their lib
erty and equality, and therefore their happi
ness and welfare. In these opinions they
may be right, and they may wrong; whether
they are one or the other, it is not for me to
say; for were you or I to attempt to do so author
itatively it would be futile. Of that question they
will be the sole and exclusive judges, 'whether
rightfully and legally or not it makes no differ
ence. Do you propose to dig these convictions,
rooted in the hearts of a community num
bering ten million souls, from their breasts
with bayonets? Nothing short of the total
annihilation and banishment of the popula
tion of the South will answer any purpose for
which the war can be prosecuted. , '
These convictions which cannot be rooted
out of the hearts of the 'People of the South,
are that slavery is essential to their social and
political welfare; which convictions, by the
grace of God, the American nation toil/ eradi
cate, by eradicating slavery itself Says ;;the
"You may kill the heroio and true men of
the South—l mean those who will not sur
render their principles and what they con
ceive to be their honor but with their lives.
You may make hypocrites , and dissemblers of
all the rest fora time but the God in man,
struggling ever for 'the mastery, will ultimately
assert His supremacy.
Mr. Chilton thinks that if by any possibility
we shoUld conquer the South, we could not
maintain the conquest:
"After their armies are dispersed and
military power broken, if such should ever be
the case, it would take not less than five hun
dred thousand men to enforce the authority of
a government set up over ten million people
their consent, which was repugnant to
againsteir feelings, sentiments .and principles.
They would, like Poland and Hungary, when
ever any great national 'emergency occurred,
rise up .in :revolt and assert their , freedom and in
No, thank you Chilton; not any more rebel
lion in this age, if you pleaie. No doubt you
and your copperhead brethren would like to
foment another one; but we—the American
people—piopose to swish this rebellion so
fine that no slaveholding traitors or copper
heads will ever, in any future time, attempt to
getup another. But one more extract from
Chilton. After having depicted the evils of
the war—after having shown to his own satis
faction the utter impossibility of conquering
the south, he asks concerning this war:
"In the naine of humanity, of justice, and of
God Almighty, ought it not to cease ?" -
—ls not this theltuignage of eopperheadism
all over the North, West and East ? Do we not
daily hoar and read such language in our own
midst ? We submit these questions to the
calm consideration of our readers. It is a fact,
that the peace Democracy are in' favor of end
ing the war, not for the sake of peace, but for
the interests of slavery. These men are willing
to treat with the South on any terms, in the
hope of securing an ally to aid in the coming
Presidential campaign. This is the secret of
their cries for peace. Herein-lies their venom
for the Government. -Let the calm and patri
otic reader Carefully deliberate these fedi.

The Moore-Marbourg Tragedy.
EBIENBI3I7RG, PA., March 9, 1864.
Editor Harrisburg Telegraph:
This pleasant little village—the county-seat
of Cambria - county—is just at present abso
lutely crowded down and running over with
people, attracted hither as witnesses or spec
tators in the celebrated Moore-Marbourg hom
icide case. A larger crowd is said to have
never before been congregated here, in the
memory of "the oldest inhabitant." To ac
commodate it with bed and board, -the hotels,
like Dm:ahoy- 1 ' wife; have. been found " nue
9nal to the effort;" so, a large
it, making a virtue of necessity, has been
obliged to quarter itself in private houses. It
is a good thing the .inhaThitants are hospi
table and kind-hearted; otherwise the propor
tion, just spoken of, might have found itself
under the disagreeable necessity of patron
izing the market house, cellar doors, and the
soft side of the pavement.
Most eminent counsel has been employed
in the case. In addition to district attorney
Moore, the prosecutor has secured the services
of Gen. Henry D. Foster, of Greensburg, and
Messrs. Potts and Kopelin, of Johnstown.
For the defence, Messrs. Johnston, of Ebens
burg, Pershing, .ll'Laughlin and Elder, of
Johnstown, B. G. Childs, of Pittsburg, and
Wm. S. Barr, of Somerset, appear.
The indictment went before the grand jury
on Monday afternoon, who; after two hours'
deliberation; returned it endorsed a "true bill."
Tuesday morning the work of empaneling
jury was begun. The regular panel was "soon
exhausted, and only six jurors obtained from
the number. It was thought it would be ab
solutely impossible to procure a jury at all,
by reason of the wide-spread interest mani
fested in the case throughout the county since
the commig -ion of "the murder, almost every
oitizen having either "formed or expressed an
opinion;" but after the execution of two or
three venires by the 'sheriff, to-wit :at about
four o'clock, r. 3r., the twelve men were se
cured and sworn in, and the -case proceeded.
Major Potts made the preliminary address
to the jury. He proceeded, at length, to liy
down the law ofemurder, and to post the jury
as to their duty, as jurors, in the-promises.
The first witness called was George Wehn,
of Johnstown. He deposed, in substance,
that on the morning of the 12th February
last, the defendant, Moore, came into his store
and sat about half an hour, when, seeing
Marbourg, the deceased, passing, he jumped
up, ran out, caught him by the collar, and
told him to confess his guilt—that he (Mar
bourg) had ruined his wife, she having "con
fessed it all" the night before. After some
further talk between the parties, Moore step
ped back a pace or two, took deliberate aim
at Marbourg, andfired—fired four or live
tinies. Marbourg was killed instantly. Moore
then went to a justice's office and gave , him
Several other witnesses on the part of the
Commonwealth have thus far been examined,
but the list of their evidence is about as
above. The evidence of the - Commonwealth
will not be - all put in probably before to-mor
row evening. As there are between one and
two hundjed witnesses subpoenaed for the de
fence, the likelihood is that the case will not
be concluded until the middle of next week.
There are a - number of reporters here for
the daily papers, and:the evidence, or at least
a summary thereof, will soon find its way to
the public. " ALPHA.

Letters from Newbern, dated March 7,
state that everything is in readiness for the

movements are difficult to nnderstand.

ing to Colonel 'Foster's command, as deserters
from the;rebel eonseription, says die prison
ers were accompanied to the place 6f execu

strong military escort. They ascended the
scaffold with a firm, elastic step and met their
fate with unflinching fortitude and determi
nation.. They asked for no quarter, and
scornfully; spurned all overtures)of concession
on condition of returning to duty in the Con
federate service. After niaking their peace
with God, they fearlessly proclaimed their
readiness -to die for their country, against
which they say they had been forcibly con
scripted to fight. A more sublime exhibition
of loyalty to the old flag was never witnessed.
The multitude was moved to tears, and openly
denounced this cruel massacre, which is caus

by the wholesale, and creating =indignation
which it is feared will be uncontrollable.
