Friday ditternoon, March 29, Mil
eon. John C. Kennedy.
We noticed lately a paragraph in the
telegraphic columns of one of of our co
temporaries, the report that the Hon.
John C. Kennedy, Superintendant of the
Census, was to be superseded. The re
port excited great surprise, from all that
we can new learn, in Washington city, as
Mr. Kennedy is regarded not only as in
dispensable at the head of his Bureau,,
but as actually one of the most patriotic
and indomitable Union men in the
country. Mae from this, there has been
no application made for the position -of
Superintendent of the Census, so that the
report'may be regardecLas only the re
sult of an effort to manufacture a "sensa
tion telegram," for the purpose of puf
fing a personal friend.
As the Superintendent of the Census,
Mr. Kennedy has rendered great service
to the country, both for his skill in organ
izing his Bureau, and his zealous devotion
to the statistics of the nation. Daring
the completion of the census of 1850, and
after the work had been completed,
President Pierce was induced to remove
Mr. Kennedy to make room for Mr. De
Bow, who impertinently appropriated to
his own benefit the credit of Mr. Ken
nedy's work, and it was only after Bellow,
had proven himself utterly incompetent
to direot the business of the Bureau, that
Mr. Kennedy was re-instated as Superin
tendent of the Census. The same work
is again organized, as in '53 and '54, and
it would again be an act of injustice, to a
competent man, as well as to the real inter
ests of the country, to remove Mr. Ken
nedy. He was first placed at the head
of the Census Bureau on the unanimous'
recommendation of the old Whig's of
Pennsylvania, and we trust that the same
infidence, still living and controlling the
administration of Abraham Lincoln, will
again be wielded in favor of Mr. Kenne
We will just add at the close of this
article, that no man has labored within
the past two months more ardently for
the Union than John o: — Kinnedy. Se
was most active in Maryland and Vir
ginia, spreading before the people of
those States all the information in his
possession, and all the argument at his
command, to strengthen their allegiance
to the Union as well as increase their de-
yotion to the Constitution. Surely in
such days as these, such a man as John
C. Kennedy must not be struck down by
either an administration or a party.
THE Raleigh (N. C.) Recorder, and
other Union papers South, think the evac
uation of Sumter the -worst sort of a
"force bill" that could be enacted against
the secessionists. "Just let` hem alone,"
says the Rerorder, "and leave them to
work out the problem of a separate and
independent government, and before
Christmas some of them will be glad
enough to •return to the fold of the Union.
Texas and Florida are not able to support
themselves, much less contribute any
thing to the support and strength of the
new Confederacy. Mssissippi hasn't
credit for a shilling in the markets of the
world, and the voice of a majority of the
voters of Louie= was not heard when
that State seceded. The taxes of the
new Coifederacy are most burthensome,
and-the people will ere long take the mat
ter in hand, put down the leaders, and
come back to the Union."
TIM NEW SENATOR FROM MISSOURI.
Waldo P. Johnson, the new United
StAtos Senator from Missouri, has been a
prominent Democratic politician in that
state, but has never been in Congress.
The St. Louis Democrat thus comments
on the issues involved in his election :
lie was one of the Commissioners to the
Peace Conference, and, we understand, exhibit
ed anything but a disposition for compromise.
In politics he differs little ) if at all, from his
predecessor. They are both conditional or pro
spective secessionists—extreme southern or
State-rights men. Personal considerations
must, therefore, have decided the choice of the
majority in preferring him to Green. The Sena
tor elect has always borne a high character for
integrity and personal propriety of conduct
among his neighbors—the people of the , south
west. In the struggle between Benton and his
enemies, Judge Johnson sided with Benton,
and opposed Phelps.
AN ENCOURAGING EPISTLE.—The
editor of tho Illinois state Journal has
received the following chaste and encour
aging apistle from a secessionist, who, it
mite : has been reading that excellent
Sminiarnma JOURNAL.-AIIOW a disunionist
to say y,our editorials are particularly noticed
South Your , talk is just the thing we like to
tear. Give us hell, we like to hear it. We
defy the Government and all such hell-hounds
as your paper and followers to alter our pur
poses. We are all right here—our course is
marked out-change it if you can.
Secession in the Past.
Our Secretary of Legation at Madrid,
Mr. Perry, has written a letter for publi
cation, in which he says that he had
fought secession in its most dangerous
form in 1854—'55 when there was a plot
among the Southern statesmen to seize
Cuba by a war in which Congress was to
have no part, then sever the North from
the SCuth, and soon after to annex Cen
tral America and Mexico, for the purpose
of extending the area of slavery. He
farther states that President Pierce and
Attorney-General Culling were instru
ments in.this Southern league, without
knowing its fullest extent. In regard to
the feeling in Spain, he says :
I am competent to say that her whole restric
tive system on our commercial intercourse can
be easily. removed. The Cuban flour duties
may be abolished by an intelligent negotiation,
and our flour, corn, beef and pork will drive
every other article out of the Spanish colonial
market whenever we choose.
Mr. Perry remarks further, that if the
North, abstaining from a war of coercion,
allows the Cotton States to be the aggres
sor, "the South is isolated, deprived of
every sympathy and every resource in the•
good will of other nations. England will
will spit upon her; the Emperor of the
Frenoh cannot lift a finger for her against
the unmistakable sentiment of that peo
ple; regenerate Italy abhors her, Spain
recognises in her the epemy of her colo
nial peace, and her foreign policy will
certainly play into the hands of the
Public Opinion at the South.
The National Intelligencer ridicules
the apprehension professed at the South
that the General• Government is preparing
t o make war upon them. It charges all
these reports to the mischievous efforts of
the secession Press, which seeks constant
ly to 'Tire the Southern heart" and exas
perate the Southern people still more
against the Union and the North. The
"So far from meditating the 'military sub
jugation' of the South, the Administration, as
we learn, is studiously desirous to avoid the very
pappearance of pm:tieing anything like q, constraint on
üblic opinion, and, as evidence of this disposi
tion, we understand that the troops about to
leave Texas, instead of being distributed at
points in Virginia and North Carolina, where
it might have , been otherwise most convenient
to station them, have all been ordered North, - where
their presence can irritate no excited sensibili
ties and give rise to no panic fears."
This is doubtless a good policy, though
it may possibly be carried too far. "Pub
licorTud-onmet—fit e South-is already unler
the most fearful constraint—and it will be
only when the loyal Union men of the
South see a prospect of their receiving
support from the Federal Government,
that they will venture to make resistance
to the terrible despotism that now oppres
ses them. We do not see the necessity
or good policy of removing all the Feder
al troops from Texas. The Goverhor of
the State, Sam Houston, resists the usur
pation by which he has been expelled
from his office, and there are tens of thou
sands of the people ready to sustain him.
Why should not the Government of the
United States leave there the nucleus of a
force to stand by the Union, whenever
the loyal people of the State determine
to do so? There is'at least a minority in
every Southern State in favor of the
Union. And while it is quite right that
the Federal Government should impose
no constraint upon public opinion, it is
only just that it should hold itself in posi
tion to give all just and legitimate aid to
the Union sentiment,• whenever the op
portunity may arise.
Tau firat international difficulty with
the Southern Confederacy has occurred in
Brooklyn, in the case of Patrick McClus
key—whose name betrays his origin—
who was brought before. a Justice,,yester
day, on a charge of intoxication. He de
nied the right of the court to try him, as
he was a citizen of the Southern Confed
eracy, in proof of which he pulled a small
Palmetto flag out of his pocket and flour
ished it difiantly before the-justice. The
Court, however, did not recognize the
right of secession, indiiidually or by
States, so Patrick was con,victed, fined
$lO and costs, and in default of- payment
was sent 'to jail for ten days, protesting
vehemently that "it would be the occasion
of war" between the United States and
the "Confederate States of America."
A PARTY was organized last year
Which repudiated all platforms except the
"constitution and laws," and which,
throughout the campaign, inscribed upon
its banneri,"The Union, the Constitution
and the enforcement of the laws." The
idea was that, by enforcing the laws, the
Union would be preserved. -We are sor
ry to see, almost daily, articles in the lead
ing organs of that pargyPdesigned to prove,
as clear as holy writ, that "the enforce
meat of the - laws" will destroy the Union.
A Union that can saved by enforcing
a negro law against local public senti
ment, but destroyed by enforcing revenue
laws among white men, is of very doubt

ExPkNsivE.—The following notice is
one issued, we presume, by the Sheriffs
of all the counties in Mississippi. It
presents to property-holders in that State,
never over-forid of paying taxes, a pleas

ding for the expenses of the novel luiury
of secession :
" FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS PSNALTY.—To the
Tax Payers of Madison County.—By an ordinance
of the state Convention a military tax has been
levied for the defence of the State. You are
hereby notified to come forward immediately
and pay the same ; and, as said Convention has
levied a tax on ail money loaned outside of the
State, and on all money kept from circulation within
the State, it becomes the duty of every taxpayer
to appear at the Sheriff's office and give in, un
der oath, said assessment of money forthwith,
-under a. penalty of five thousand dollars. This
act applies as well to those who have hereto
fore paid their taxes as to those who have not
paid them. A. R. 3fADDOX., Sheriff.
FROM THE FEDERAL OAPITAL.
Correspondence of the Daily Telegraph,
WessiThIGTON, March 26, 1861
In the midst of the contention for position
under the new administration, we are not re
garding the movements of the southern con
federacy with the attention they deserve. Jeff
Davis, immediately after his inauguration, de
clared that be would eat his dinner in the White
House on the 4th day of July, 1861. It seems
that he was then perfectly acquainted with. the
extent of the treason which has - since assumed
so formidable an attitude, and that he regard
ed the power of the South immeasurably great
er than both the perwer and prowess of the
other three sections of the country. And if we
are allowed to judge from results, the President
of, the southern confederacy was not far, wrong
in his estimation. As an instance of this fact,
the insurgents or revolutionists have seized or
stolen a large amount of public property con•
sisting of forts, arsenals, munitions of war,
cattle, horses and money to an enormous
amount, all of which they have been able to hold " en
undisturbed possession. The great robbery of
Twiggs in Texas capped the climax of these out
rages—and yet outrageous as they are in "our
eyes, they give to the cause'of secession in the.
South a prestige whichsis seducing to its ranks
the - best men in that locality. Why, then,
should we longer regard the - threat of Davis to
take his dinner in the Capital of Washington
on the 4th day of July, as the declaration of an
idle boaster ? To reach Washington by land
would be easily accomplished, considering the
state of public feeling in Virginia. No one
longer doubts , the possibility of Virginia being
out of the Union in time to give Davis a safe
transit through her territory, so that should the
Arch-Traitor reach the banks of the Potomac,"
gathering strength and numbers on his way,
hither, his march across the "Long Bridge"'
would be made triumphal by the traitors who
yet lurk in Washington, while the undoubted'
syrapstim_of_a_tosjority of its citizens for "the
cause of the South," would - greet him with
welcome shouts on the portals of the Executive
mansion. North Carolina and Virginia have
both been playing secretly Into the hands of
the secessionists. They have parleyed and de
liberated merely to delay action on the part of
the Federal Government, and thus afford am
ple time for the development and strengthening
of the treason. Both these States are slowly
but surely casting off their disguise of conserva
tism, and manifesting that sympathy for their
sister slave States which it Is natural for them
In view of this condition of affairs, the policy
is boldly proclaimed that to coerce the South
would be-death to what remains of the Union.
We have befcire our eyes the fact that the re
bellion in the South bas already been a success.
Its leaders have succeeded in establishing their
power by. maintaining their position. They
have forced the Federal 'Government to decide
on the necessity of withdrawing the Federal
troops. They hold the Federal arsenals, and
with their troops have garrisoned the Federal
forts. After accomplishing this much, the
mere marching on Waihingbin and taking 'pos.
session of the public property would be an easy
task, particularly when the non-resistance of
the North is fully understood. It would be
a short struggle thus to enlarge this already
gigantic scheme of usurpation, and •fully and
finally place the proud capital of this nation
at the mercy of a rebel band, and under .the
control of a rebel chief. We have closed our
eyes too long to their excuses, and the longer
we treat with these traitorsthe stronger they
become. In all their positions we recognize
their power by neglecting to vindicate the an
thority of the Federal Government. Thus we
give these men every inducement to attack the
Federal capital. Virginia and Biaryland have
delayed the attack, as I have stated, only to
give strength to the assailants, and when the
assault does come, and the Southern rebels get
possession of the Federal Capital, you will have
in your own midst the argument that it would
be irritating and coercive either to resist the
attack, or after, it has been made, to at
tempt to retake the public property thus
violently aggrandised. We must be pre
pared for strange developments in these days
of strange transactions, and it may not be
a year until even the occupation of the Fede
ral Capital by Jeff. Davie and his Cohorts will
cease to'excite attention or remark.
A very interesting and belligerent encounter
is approaching in the Senate between the two
great defeated candidates for the Presidency,
Stephbit A. Douglas and John C. Breckinridge.
Between these two Senators a most deadly ha
tred exists, out of which must soon grow one
of those struggles which have lately been add
ing so much excitement to the already over
excited condition of the public_mind, and from
which Will spring fresh cause for revolution and
outrage. Equally with James Buchanan, there
is no doubt that both Douglas and Breckin
ridge are responsible for the condition of the
country. Breekinridge has aided the traitors
by lending them his sympathy, while Douglas,
in the first instance aroused the storm by the
manner of his hasty course and precipitate re
peal of satisfactory legislaticin. Finding Plonk
selves' approaching the vortex of an awful
doom, they are preparing to scratch each others
eyes out before they descend to its darkness al
if they desired more effectually to shut out its
gloom. If these men were the only sufferers,
their encounters would amount to nothing ;
but as they drag down with themselves the re
spectability and confidence of the nation, we
are bound to deplore their presence and con
duct on the floor of the Senate. That Mr. Dou
glas has been dneanly treated by Mr. Breck
inridge is an admitted fact, but the fact does
not give him the privilege to introduce his pri
vate grievances in debate for the purpose of
ejecting his spleen on a hated rival.
Pennsylvania has cause to be proud of her
representation on the floor of the Senate, be
ginning with the present special session of that
body. Edgar Cowan and David Wilmot, in
point of ability, devotion t) their Common
wealth and unflinching adherence to principle,
have never been excelled by auy former delega
tion in the same body from the Keystone State.
Both in the prime of life—both with intellects
of a high order, trained and disciplined in a
profession in which men can arrive at the high
est accomplishment as well as practical excel
lence, the people of Pennsylvania have cause to be
proud of their Senators and a right to anticipate
great benefits and grand results from - their repre
sentation. Between tire two, men there is only
the difference that Judge Wilmot has had more
experience in legislation than Edgar Cowan.
Dining the stormy session of the twenty-ninth
Congress, when the administration of James K.
Polk was engaged in concocting the great
wrong of forcing on the people of the free
States, Texas and the war with Mexico, David
Wilmot was a_conspienoue and distinguished
member of the House of Representatives. He
was opposed to the admission of Texas, because
he could only see the wrong it inflicted, and
predicted then what has since been perpetrated
by the people of that Commonwedlth, in pro
ving recreant to a compact which warmed them
into life, and raising their bloody hands to
deril a death blow at those who gave them re
spectability and position. Judge Wilmot will
make himself heard before his term expires in
a manner which will silence his foes and sat
isfy his friends. Together with Edgar Cowan,
he will leave the interests of Pennsylvania in
the condition in which they found them
through the exertions and influence of Simon
Cameron, well cared for and protected.

NEW Yong, March 29
The case of the steamer Bienville, which was

New Orleans, has been arranged with the Gov
ernment-at Washington, - and she will sail for
Havana and New Orleans on Monday next, the

The Government, it seems, was disposed to
be leinent with the owners, as the obtaining of
a proper clearance at New Orleans is an impos
sibility at the present time, and the confiscation
of the vessel, together with her cargo, as re
quired by law, would consequently be an act
of injustice to irresponsible parties.
