Tam Muntams ow was COUNTRY, after we have
forever put to rest the rebellion which now dis
turbs its peace, will become a subject of grave
consiaqation. • From what we have learned in'
the lait six weeks, the free States of the nation
will be compelled to organise their military
strength on some basis of security, or at any
moment: the success of trade and busineM maY
be interrupted by the revolutionary movements
of those who deem themselves . aggravated by
any constitutional act legislation. We must
either do this, or crush the' influence of rebel
lion. Literally it is now proven that the inter
est of,one aection'cannot rest its;claim to legal
jurisdictiOn even in theAerritory where it is re
comgzed4-end it becomes necessary in the judg
ment of its advocates to arm for its promulga
tion where best it can But:eery° their ambition,
even if the welfare and prospects of whole com
monwealths are ruined and destroyed. Here- .
tofore the cry has been against a - standing army,
the policy of which, pro or con, it is not our pur
pose now to discuss. But it will appear to any
candid mind that a government so vast as the one
which we recognize should have more of the
central power of self-protection, more of the
means of enforcing its laws, or more of the
backbone of that influence which can demand
where it cannot now win the obedience and sup
port of the.people. This cannot be had by the
organization of a standing army, because a
standing army is not in the spirit of our in
stitutions, resting their highest claims of
success in the loyalty of the people.—
To freemen, standing armies are repugnant,
because their presence imply a certain force
that is' ()Only inimical to'freedom. The only
means of acquiring this defence, and increasing
the security of communities, aswell as ensming
the full force of the law, is by a more general
recognition of the volunteer force of the coun
try, and its encouragement by Government.
Pennsylvania should never have less than fifty
thousand thoroughly drilled, fully armed and
completely equipped volunteers. Distributing
such a force among the sixty-four counties of
the State, it will be seen that with little energy
on the part of the people, and as little expense
to the State, such a volunteer force could be
maintained, and in an emergency like the
present, brought forward with tremendous force
and power. The mere enrolling of men, or
their training in awkward squads, companies or
regiments, is not the achievement of a military
organization. These were the defects Of the
militia system; and unless the State adopt
some plan of encouraging the volunteer aye
tem, that, too, will fall Into disrepute, except
in the larger cities, where "soldiering" is-made
too often a pleasure instead of -a , duty.
Hereafter we must practice the old and sage
advice of " in time of peace prepare for war."
A State that has the material is to blame for
not organizing the means of defence. Penn
sylvania now shows the ex tent of the martial
feeling that pervades her people, and we trust
that it will be cultivated for , good in all future
The New York Tribune of this morning says
By private and special advises to the 2libtms,
received late last night, we learn that Gen.
Scott was satisfied on Sunday that his force was
sufficient to defend Washington against any at
tack that couldbe made within a few days, and
that the troops which were expected there this
week would be ample for its protection in any
poallble contingency.
The Government is in regular communica
tion with Philadelphia by private couriers.—
Gen. Wilson, of Massachusetts, left Philadel
phia for Washington yesterday, bearing dis
patches to Gen. Scott from Gen. Patterson.
Baltimore was tolerably quiet yesterday. A
Vigilance Committee of sixty was exercising stir
veillanee over all strangers, and travelers were
exposed to much annoyance from them.
Fort Mlienry has been reenforced by volun
teers from Massachusetts, and the commander
of the fortress has positive orders to shell Bal
timore in case of any attack on the United
States troops.
The Baltimore Sun of Sunday morning says :
"It will be seen that the Seventh Regiment
has arrived safely at Asupolis. The Seventh
Regiment of New York, whose passage through
this city was prevented by the burning of the

They will probably reach Washington either by

We have just seen a gentlemen who left Bal-
timore last night and arrived in the train from
Cockeysville. He states that the city is under
the entire control of a mob and that the sol
dien are occupied in the city with watching
the stores and goods of citizens, who fear that
their families may be murdered.

There are manYgood people in the north and
west and east, who get puzzled to account for
the great crisis in which we are involved. The
steady industry of the free States, which has
contributed so much to the prosperity of the
whole Union, is-embarrassed because it is die
turlied inthat peaceable pursuit of its business
which is essential to success, and not because
there is no actual demand for its productions.
These are the people, then, who demand to
know wy the tranquility of the Union should
be thu.silisturbed, and why all our commercial
relations are thus litterly antagonized. The
question is easily explain ed,if care is taken to ban
ish every prejudice while all the circumstances
are being explained. During a long course of
years, the political patronage and power of the
country seemed to have been reposed in a cer
tain class of people, aa by the necessity, or
afleast by-the-unanimous . 'acquiescense of an
other. The conclusion was proclaimed that
there was one class in this country born to
rule, while the balance of the people ,were ex
pected to submit to this ruling, with ;the free
and easy grace of knation that was blessed In
being thus favored. We:all remember the ho
ly horror that was exWed:in' the bosoms of the
people when one Daniel Webster dared to plaCe
himself on an equality in debate with a certain
individual named Hayne. ' Both gentlemen
were members of the United States Sen
ate, and both, as it were, represented the
idea of the ruler and the ruled, as it was
popularly accepted in ithose palmy days of
chivalry, imperious political emieence, and
forced acknowledgement of sectional qualifica
tions and statesmanship The proOlety of the
Senate was dreadfully shocked when the Yan.
kee dared to,reply to, the scion of Southern ar
istocracy—but the intellectual encounter struck
so wide a distinction in the abilities of the men
and the mighty interests of the sections, that
ever since a political and social rivalry has been
kept up, to:the loss and chagrin of the one,
while it was to the advantage and develop
ment of the,other party. And thus running
parallel in a race of expansion, these two great
influences have been in silent conflict for many
years; the one assuming the moat arrogant po
sitions, while the other was silently gathering
victory and - power in its prosecution of holy
purposes, until it stands forth to-day the pos
sessor and 'the actual- controller of a hemis
phere. With this possession, by this certain.
interest, came other 'priers and other influ
ences. New States created both this power and
these influence's. While this was going on, the
feeling which scoffed at the Mastachusetts law
yer for daring to reply to the South. Carolina
intellectual giant was also at work. Every
advantage which it last created some new jeal
ousies, and upon these jealousies has culmina
ted the rebellion that for a time threatened the
stability of our institutions, but whichis hap
pily subsiding before the mighty uprising of
the American people.
The loss of power, by the failure to improve,,
may be set down, then, as , one of the main
causes of this rebellion. The loss of political
cast, the consciousness of having failed in main
tabling position by the' practical use of the
resources and powers of both mind and body,
have also had their influence in'briuging about
this rebellion—so that the counter influence
which must be brought to bear in arresting the
rebellious cause, is the dissemination of that
knowledge which elevates labor. This done,
and the machination of parties cease to be ef
fective. And when parties once cease to gov
ern the actions of men, and the _mass of men
guide and direct the power and influence of
party, the country will be blessed with practi.
cal legislation, having for its end and aim Only
the benefit of communities by the elevation of
labor. '
The real cause of the rebellion, then, is the
effort of an aristocracy that yet exists in our
political system to gain the ascendency. It is
neither an aristocracy of money, muscle or
mind. Its claims to recognition are all pre
sumption—the power which it wields is made
up alone of brute force over ignorance—and it
has managed to maintain position so long only
by the courteous permission of the actual rul
ing influence of this nation—free and intern
gent labor. And the changes which are being
wrought are the natural consequences of in
defensible error. As this error is eradicated,
and the power of the people made manifest in
their determination to enforce the law and de
fend the Union, both will be made more secure,
and their psmancy established on sounder and
stronger foundations than ever they rested be
CorroN RAB BUN Sawa, but by its own indis
cretion, cotton will be sing no more. Thomp
son's New York Bank Reporter thus traces the
gloomy prospects which the future presents - for
this immense interest, so far as its influence in
the government is concerned :
"The 'material aid' is ready for the army
and navy movements of the country. Money
will come in any amount on the call of either
Federal or State governments, and judging from
the spirit of the people, upon , the physical power
of the North, and of even the Border States of
the South, is enlisted and resting Its arms,
ready and 'on call,'
"What a magnificent but sad spectacle is be
fore tia--500,000 freemen in arms marching
southward to battle? for what? Because a
handful of demagogue politicians refuse to let
a legally elected citizen preside as President for
the constitutional term of four years. There is
not a national principle in this war, except it
be the question Of free or slate labor in the
Territories. Every other reason for secession,
revolution and war is sheer insult to common
sense—`rule or ruin' is the only honest motto
that a secessionist can unfurl.
" We have come to the conviction that the
Lord has turned Abolitionist, and that.Cotton

boast of having Indian warrora in their camp ;
arid do they expect us to undergo the smut on

force of a slave in our de'ense? If so, they are
but novice in the science of human nature.

defensive. It has no conquest to achieve where
it has never surrendered its authority. The
States that have seceded have by that act vio
lated the first security of the government by
attempting to destroy the Union. These States
have assumed an aggressive attitude, against
which, for the highest and holiest reasons of
public safety, the government is placed in the
defensive. This fact has already disarmed the
secession movement of much of the force which
its leaders hoped to get for it, by forcing the
government into a position in which it would
appear to the world that a people laboring to
maintain Oast right were tyranically opposed
by an unjust government. But such is not the
condition of affairs in this crisis. The govern
went,. so far, has only defended its property.
It has done nothing more than this, and in
this it will be sustained by all the laws gov
erning the rights of property. The blockading
of the ports, which is now so bitterly complain
ed of, is another defensible act, and justified
bylhe condition of affairs, which:threaten to
defraud the government by refusing to enforce
the revenue laws. If the people in the seceded
States attempt and actually do, (as they have,)
open their ports to free trade, the government
must protect itself, and it can only do so by a
blockade. The offer of Jeff. Davie to issue let
tern of Marque, will place the government again
on the defensive, by forcing it to adjudge as pi
racy, any attempt to interfere with its com
merce. These defensivepositioniof the govern
ment are beginning to have an immense prim-
Veal effect, and in the end will doubtless result .
in restoring the country to order. The concen
tration of a large force at Washington is, also,
another of the defensive movements of the gov
ernment which some even are now declaring
will put an end to any further encounter be•
tween the rebels and the government. We
can Word to note the progress of this defensive
`policy, particularly if its future developements
are as healthy as its present experience is en
ccuraging and effective.
As OLD sormsa, writing to the New York
Evening Post, gives the following timely hints
to the volunteers who are now hastening to
the defence - of the country:
ItemeMber that in a campaign more men
die from sickness than by the bullet.
2. Line your blanket with one thickness of
brown drilling. This adds but four ounces in
weight, and doubles the warmth.
3. Buy a email India rubber blanket (only
$1 30) to lay on the ground or to throw over
your shoulders when on guard duty dining a
rain storm. Most of the Eastern troops are
provided with these. Straw to lie on is not al
ways to be had.
4. The best military hat in use is the light
colored soft felt; the crown being suffichntly
high to allovr space for air over the brain. You
can fasten it up as a continental in fair weather,
or turn it down when it is wet or very sunny.
6. Let your beard grow, so as to protect the
throat and lunge.
6. Keep your entire person clean ; this pre
vents fevers and bowel cobiplaints in warm cli
mates. Wash your body each day, if possible.
Avoid strong coffee and oily meats. Gen. ficott
said that the too free 1183 of these (together
with neglect in keeping the skin clean) cost
many a soldier his life is Mexico.
7. A sudden check of perspiration by chilly
or night air often clauses fever and deatli.—
When exposed do not forget your blanket.
Qua Government should at once largely in
crease the mechanics at the various northern
arsenals, cannon foundries, &c. and in every
possible way add to the supply of .the latest
style of arms and munitions of war. The
South—all the Border States included—has
been seeing these articles for months past,
and we have been defrauded by villains in all
quarters. The Cincinnati anantercial of Battu,
day, says :
Thirteen boxes of guns, cannon, Sm., were
taken from the steamer Moses McLellan yester
day by the Chief of Police, and stored. The 3

IN TREASON Tams every man should drill,

the Union should be illustrated, to make it re

Seizure of Contraband Goods—Tre
mendous Excitement.
On Sunday afternoon, about one o'clock, an
unparalleled excitement was raised in the city,
by a report that a large lot of war material had
been brought to th.a city, by Adams' Express,
by the Pennsylvania Railroad, destined"for
Charleston, B. C., and other points in the
The information was conveyed to Dr. Mc-
Cook, a member of the Committee of Public
Safety, by a young man who saw the goods ou
the cars, which had just reached the city. The
report spread like wild-fire, and the patriotic
blood of the veteran doctor was soon up to boil
ing heat. He posted off immediately to the
depot, followed by" animmense mass of people,
the great body of whom knew, nothing of the
cause of the excitement. , • .
Mayor Wilson ' Chief of Police Patterson,and
a member of the Safety Committee, repaired to
the depot, and the Washington Infantry, Capt.
Rowley, were ordered - out to protect the prop
erty of the Railroad Company.
There were no demonstrations of violence,
and after consultation it was agreed to search
all the boxes and bales which wore supposed,to
contain articles contraband of war. The boxer
were opened in the cars, and those not contra
band were carefully closed, while all army
equipments Were seized and taken to the
Mayor's office, with the stars and stripes proudi)
waving over them.
The articles seized were principally army
blankets, shirts and materials for manufactur
ing uniforms.
A very large bale of blankets, enough to sup
ply several companies, was addreaead to "Nev
itt, Lattrop & Regan, &varnish, Ga."
Another very heavy bale of shirts and shirt
ing material was directed to "Henry Lattrop
& Co., Savannah, Ga."

There was also a small bale of loather "muz
zle guards," used in putting over the muzzles
of cannon while in action. They were directed
"C. O. Masao, Savanah, Ga."
The goods, which amounted to two or three
dray lueds were conveyed to the Mayor office's,
and are now in possession of the Safety Com
mittee. They were all shipped from New York,
and marked "by rail, all the way through . "
This is supposed (nay, positively asserted) to be
the first shipment of contraband articles
through this city, and the damage done to the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, by the Secession
ists themselves, is supposed to have created the
necessity for this bOld movement.
The rebels may fled traitors. in New York to
supply them with such artiCles -as those,-but
they may depend upon it that our citizens will
not let a dollar's worth pass this point. Our
own cien need equipments, sod this shipment
will be found very serviceable just at present.
The rebels are d iven to great extremity when
they are compelled to resort to such measures,
but they will be in a severer extremity yet be
fore their treason is atoned for.
We anxiously await, the next shipment for
the South !
Tniatr naturalized
. citizens, Germans and
Irish, who had been compelled to enlist in the
Rebel army, positively refused to fire on the
American flag, during the. bombardment of
Sumpter, and were consequently arrested and
put in prison in Charleston, where they yet re
main. The naturalized citizens know that
their allegiance is to the United States Govern
ment, and that none other can protect them
from the claims of European Governments up
on them for service owed before they became
citizens of the United States. . •
