Tuesday Afternoon, April 16, 1861.
The Offering of Pennsylvania.
A resolution passed the House udanimously
this morning, tendering the unlimited resources
and credit of the State to the President, 'for the
purpose of adopting rigorous means to bring
the rebellion at the South to a speedy termina
tion. Adding this to the offerings of troops
which are hourly pouring into the Secretary of
State's office, we have cause to feel proud of
our noble old Commonwealth. And when the
encounter comes, that must end this unholy
and ungrateful disturbance, Pennsylvania _will
be there in all her ancient strength and glory.
We publish elsewhere in this afternoon's Tsui
GRAPH a list of the troops offered up to our
going to press.
Tas PEOPLE OP Prarierr.vasta regard it as of
little iinportance whether a single or a dozen
representatives change their votes on a bill
after that bill has become a law, and after these
representatives had joined in a caucus to devise
means, and made every effort on the floor, to
defeat such a measure. The representative
who candidly and fairly changes his position,
is entitled to our respect, but when a man, serv
party, and obeying thltaiolitical injunc
tione of his masters, doe 3 all )can to injure
the reputation and the patriot ''''
_of . his State;
and then shrinks from taking the responsibility
before the indignant masses, he is entitled to
neither our respect or the confidenee of the
constituency whom he aspires to serve. As an
instance, Mr. Leisenring, one of the Democrat
ic representatives from Philadelphia, changed
his vote,from opposition to the "Military Bill,"
to that of support, because he was under the
impression in the first instance, that the bill
WB9 unconstitutional. Why did not Mr. Lei
souring assert its unconstitutionality on the
floor of the House, and with any of the lore of
jurisprudence or statesman-like sagacity with
which he is endowed, convince his colleagues
that they were engaged in unconstitutional le
gislation, and thus discharge his duty as a re
presentative? The reason why Mr. Leisenring
did not discuss the constitutionality, he and
his friends can best explain. The reason why
he voted against it, is perhaps better explained
because he was carrying out the programme of
the Democratic caucus, I o assist in embarrassing
the Federal Administration, and thus covertly
give aid and comfort to the enemies of the
country. But the voice of an indignant com
munity aroused these men to their duty. The
fear of just retribution, not the force of their
own reason, induced them to change their
votes. And because they have thus obeyed the
mighty influence of the people, they should
bow gracefully to the decree, and not attempt
to justify themselves with egotistical assertions
of constitutional investigations that were never
THE Passmorr's REQUISITION TON Thome,
has been questioned by some as being uncon
stitutional. It is alleged that he has no power
to call on the States for men, or use the reserv
ed force of the army. We imagine that the
Constitutionality of the, subject was well di
gested and discussed in Cabinet meeting, before
the proclamation for troops was advertised.—
Perhaps, since the organization of the Govern
ment, there has not been as much legal ability
concentrated in the Executive branch, as is
contained in the present Cabinet. Some of the
most astute and brilliant Constitutional law
yers in the land compose the Cabinet, and
therefore the mere Constitutionality of a mea
sure can safely be accepted. • Joined to this
legal ability, there are also in the Cabinet men
of the most extensive business experience and
full knowledge of all the operations of fi
nanciering, so that the practicability as well
as Constitutionality of every measure of policy
of the present Administration may be safely
regarded as beyond a doubt. The Administra
tion, in this crisis, acting thus in concert in
its Cabinet deliberations, and its members join
ing each other in the free exchange of the re
sults of their experience and knowledge, ask
only the confidence and support of the masses
of the American people, to aid them in rescu
ing the American Government from the con
fusion and carnage into which it has been
plunged by revolution and battle. They
have a right both to ask and expect this
confidence and co-operation of the people.—
And while the people - are thus confiding,
among all the assurances that they may
depend upon, the assurance that the Adminis
tration will act in strict conformity with the
Constitution may be received without the un•
certainty of a single doubt.
We notice that the Breckenridge press of
Pennsylvania continues to teem with assaults
on the Aministration for attempting to enforce
the laws, in the shape of editorials copied from.

give our neighbors the benefit of the confession
of faith they made this morning, and insert it,.

these days with the slightest renunciations of

Out of their own Mouths are they
The Patriot and Union, this morning, yields
to the pressure of public opinion, by giving the
cause of the Union a tacit support. In doing
so, however, the opportunity was not lost to
give the Republican party one of those cet4
ardly thrusts peculiar only to the Pairiotaiig
Union. The reassertion that the cause * 0 irk

of the Republican party, is a stale falseho.
an excited political ost*paign, excusable in the
heat and pbrenzy.o4attle, but unjustifiable
now, when men are , eipected to ponder delib
erately and act ccolly„nn all questions affecting
our nationality itlwe 1 as our individuality.
In the first place, w;e assert that the cause of the
trouble which has divided the dountry can only

forced to the conclusionAW:ihen the oppor
tunity again presents itst*Aat journal will
again teem - with laudatio&W the slave power,
at the expense of every 'free aspiration and
tendency of the age. "In common with the
Democratic party," says the Patriot, "we warned
the people against the very results which are
norupon us. We cautioned them against the
ins able consequences of sectional animosity."
Here is the old song, "still harping on my
daughter." This is the plea and the justifica
tion of the Democratic party - for all this treason
—for the assault on the flag and the,peculation
of the property of the government. They fix
the rule for slavery. They proclaim its limits
to be boundless. They assert its rights to be
unquestionable. They announce the doctrine
of buying and selling human flesh as divine.—
And after having proclaimed all these strange
and startling dogmas, they seek to place a rope
about the neck of every white man in the coun
try, drag him to the polls, and there force him to
vote a justification of these monstrous ideas of
modern Democracy. If he refuses, he is a fa
natic. If be declares that he abhors slavery,
he is denounced as a vile abolitionist, and if
his friends and neighbors join him in the resist
ance of such outrages, their organization ispro
nounced a sectional combination, and forth
with the slave power viplently seeks to break
up the government. They not citily seek to do
so, but they accomplish their piirstike by repu
diating the power of the feCiereladrabiletAtion.
They hasten events and , fo recrairthOrity , until
they are brought into confictrWttliAeVvern
ment. They inaugurate a civic•celifirct for' no
other cause then revenge, and they-ask, •the
civilized world to recognize . their' ob asirrevo
lution, seeking the elevation of an exclusiVe
class to the destruction of the rights of the: reP
resentatives of every race
i devoted to the pur
suits of honest industry.
We hope hereafter that the Patriot and Union
will forbear to offer any more excuses as lame
as the one it offered this morning in extenua
tion of its past sympathy for treason. , The
people of the free States understand this crisis,
and they are well aware of its causes and con
sequences. It is neither the result of a Repnb
lican triumph or a Republican Administration.
It is the natural effect of a train of policy pur
sued by the Democratic party for the past forty
years, in fostering slavery until its advocates
and maintainers deemed themselves the gov
erning classes, and sought the exclusion of all
other interests from the legislation of the coun
try. But as they failed in such an exclusion,
so will they fail in organizing a government on
the basis of slavery. The Christian world is
against all such attempts at barbarism. The
Christian sentiment and Christian gentlemen
in this Union are all against such a movement,
and to save itself from all further attempts at'
blundering apologies, to satisfy public opinion
and escape the honest indignation of the com
munity, we advise our neighbors of the Patriot
and Union to join in this Christian, snd patri
otic, and Republican undertaking of crushing
slavery forever, on the ramparts itself has
erected for the destruction of liberty.

This is a proper and a patriotic manner in
which to co-operate with the Government to
suppress treason. Mr. Bsrryhill is one of those
staunch Union men who are now so zealously
engaged all over the country in the cause of
law and order. He is, withal, one of the men
for the crisis, who never pause long when duty
points the way to action.
Rnstotrerrons.--It is stated that of the eleven
hundred and ten officers whose names are on
the Army Register, the number of resignations
to this date since the secession movement com
menced is eighty-six; and that of eight hun
dred and six commissioned officers of the Navy
thirty-three have resigned from all causes since
the first of January, to which should be added
four lieutenants who resigned in December
from their sympathy with secession. Ot the
seventy-six commissioned officers of the Navy

The people of Pennsylvania will hailwith ex

satisfaction to announce the fact that the fol

preamble and resolution to the President of
the United States. '
Reasons for Changing Votes.
- Messrs. Ellenberger, Leis' enring, Byrne, Smith,
of Berks, Boyer and Osterhout, Democratic
members of the House of Representatives, who
voted against the bill for the proper regulation
of the Military system of this Commonwealth,
and supplying them with arms and equipments,
changed their votes yesterday, by leave of the
House, and recorded them in the affirmative :
Mr. ErLIDTBERGER remarked :
I voted against the bill; and when I did so,
I did it because I desired, if possible, that
Pennsylvania should, by no act, throw the
least obstacle in the way of an amicable adjust
ment of our national difficulties.' I had not
then heard of the proceedings , at Charleston.
I was yet hopeful for a peaceable arrangement
of our troubles; lau!., since then I have learned
that the Federal forces have been:fired upon;
that there has been a positive refusal to let
Fort Sumter be provisioned, and that actual
war has been inaugurated against the Govern
ment of the United States.
I now feel that duty to my country, that
duty to the Commonwealth and to my constit
uency, demand that I should vete for this
measure. I had hoped that the evil of civil
war might be averted. I can only say it has
como, and the blame must rest upon those who
have began it. I- must stand for the Govern
ment. I must stand up for our defence against
the enemy. I must stand by the Constitution
and the laws, and I shall do so willingly, gladly,
not only by my vote, but in every other way
which may be required of me.
Pennsylvania has tried by kind words and
kind acts to avert this evil, but It is upon us.
I shall stand firm in her defence and in defence
of the national Government, let what come
may, and may the God of nations soften the
harshness of sectional feeling, and yet save
our blessed heritage.
Mr. LEISENRING said : When the bill,
entitled "An Act for the better organi
zation of the militia of the Common
wealth," was before the House, I voted against
it because I had conscientious scruples as to
its constitutionality. Since that time hostili
ties have commenced against the Government
of the 'United States, and an attempt made by
an armed force to seize its. property. The
President of the United States has issued a
proclamation calling upon all "loyal citizens
to favor, facilitate and aid" him in maintaining
"the honor, the integrity and the existence of
our National Chinn and the perpetuity of the
popular Government," and asked for 75,000
men to suppress combinations against the Gov
ernment. In view of there facts; and not
knowing how soon Pennsylvanians may be re
quired to "repel invasion" against the Corn
monweath, or suppress insurrection" within
her own borders, I deem it my duty to ask the
unanimous consent of this House to allow me
to change mfvote on the bill for the better
organization of the militia of the Common
Mr. SHAFER, the Republican member for
Chester county, who had been unavoidably ab
sent when the bill passed, sdso obtained leave
to vote on the same. He voted in common,
with all good patriota for the bill.
