THE UNION-THE CONSTITUTION-AND
THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW.
Thursday Afternoon, April• 25, 1881.
William W. Irwin, Esq., of Beaver county,
has been appointed Commissary General of the
militia of the Commonwealth, and Is actively
engaged in the dis Charge of the duties of his

TE Wan Is so BE AGGRESSIVE, so far as we
can titer from the movements of the southern
conspirators; and as they have struck the first
blow, on them the consequences of the conflict
• will fall. Admitting this to be so, it would be
well for the people of the free states to pre
' pare themselves for such a resistance to the
aggression of these traitors as will turn the tide
of this rebellion, and place the war where it
'belongs, in the midst of the territory of trea-
son. Fri= their movements, we can see that
.they do not desire a campaign near either
Richmond or Charleston, preferring to have it
as far north as possible from the elements of
danger in their nwn midst. To make an im
pression.on the border states and hurry Ten
nessee and Kentucky into secession, Baltimore
was crowded with the minions of treason,
where they succeeded in provoking the mob to
attack the Federal troops, the consequence of
which was the loss of blood on both sides. No
quarter was shown to unarmed men attempting
to pass through a State professing loyalty to
the Union. No quarter is to be offered to the
defenders of the city of Washington; and it is
time, therefore, that this determination should
be spread before the people who are struggling
to save the Union and enforce the !awe.
No quarter is proclaimed by these freebooters.
rushing on the Capital of the nation. No quar
ter is nailed to the mast-heads of their piratical
crusers--and as no quarter appears to be their
war-cry, the North and the West must answer
the barbaric determination with a shout of de-.
Rance such as will accept their thirst of no
quarter, and make it the rule of the warfare.
Rendered perfectly desperate by the barren
fruits of their attempted and successful lar
cenies, they have shown their true colors, when
they proclaim this war, so far as they are con
cerned, as a crusade of spoliation and invasion,
the invasion_ of natural, civil and religions
rights. And we belieire, that the Confederacy,
to be entirely successful, must persist in mak
ing this conflict one of no quarter, for if they
permit a single freeman to survive the conteet,
the triumph will be insecure and the universal
slavery they seek to establish, be constantly in
danger. On the same principle, forced into
this alternative of no quarter, the people of the
loyal States must show no quarter to traitors,
but struggle for their annihiliatiou, their ban
ishment and total extinction. Into such extremes
ate we being forced by the desperation of our '
VIRGINIA is reaping the folly of her treachery
in the universal condemnation which is being
heaped upon her. The western part of the
State will never join the 'crazy portion of the
Old Dominion, so that thoee wbo are endeavor

tunity of testing the length to which the
practice can be carried by a division of.,the

ANDREW JACKSON, in his famous Nullification
Menage, delivered in the year 1818, declared
that "it is the right of mankind generally, to
secure by all means in their power, the bless
ings of liberty and happiness; but when for
these purposes, any body of men have volun
tarily associated themselves under a particular
form of government, no portion of them can
dissolve the association without acknowledging
the correlative right in the remainder to de
cide whether that dissolution can be permitted
consistently with the general happiness." What
was law in lifilli is law now, or we must have
changed the statutes wonderfully. But what
was character and force in politics in the days
of nullification does not appear to be such in
the days of rebellion. Gen. Jackson struck
nullification before it had time to gather
strength. He boldly informed the followers of
John C. Calhoun that there was but one posi
tion beyond resistance to the law, and that was
on the gallows. He laid down the law to the
people.while - they were preparing to resist its
force, informed them of the peril they were
approaching, and then demanded that they
should choose between allegiance and treason.
The readers of the political history of those
times will remember that the nullification was
robbed of its power before it had time to raise
its head for the fatal blow it bad contemplated.
The Southern people themselves crushed the
organization—and by thin act admitted the
eternal unity of these States. They declare.
that the spirit of our laws was adverse to revo
lution for the correction of evils which could be
reached through the legitimate channels of
In contrast with the action of Andrew
Jackson, the position of James Buchanan,
while he was President, is worthy of the se
rious consideration of the people of this Union,
because James Buchanan was a member of the
Administration of old Hickory, and of course,
approved of its policy. If he had not cheer
fully and absolutely done so, James Buchanan
would have - never been commissioned as Minis
ter to Russia by Andrew Jackson. The ques
tion then is just and natural, "why did James
Buchanan neglect or refuse to put an end to
this rebellion when It first started in Charles
ton:" He certainly knew the objects of those
wherwere leading in its councils and active in
its advancing. The principle they adduced to
justify their outrages was the same produced
by John C. Calhoun, the same denied by An
drew Jackson. And yet the conspirators with
Davis at their head, were the favorites at the
White House up to March 4, 1801—they were
the men who apportioned the last favors of the
last Administration, carried off its honor and
its notes and its bullion, -and seized and held
ita forts and its arsenals. Had James Buchan
an imitated the energy of Andrew Jackson,
secession would have been crushed before he
-left the Presidency. But lacking both the
force and the energy of Jackson, Buchanan
permitted the rebellion to strengthen and en
- contenting himself with. the reflection
that its complications would serve to confuie
the Administration of Abraham Lincoln, and
thus add to the already inumerable gratifica

Is TEM COTTON STATES remain out- of the
Union, as they declare they will, United States
stock must increase in value very materially.
While South Carolina-and her associates in
crime and treason were in the Union, United
- Stites stock was worth S 1 16(41 20 per dollar.
The inference is then fair, that If the slave
states should all remain out,of the Union,'the
value of these stocks would so increcers'as to
make the credit of the government the proud
est feature of its construction. Poverty; it is
justly declared, is no crime. But when. States
have wasted' their resources and suffered their
..energies to become enervated, if their poverty
does not assume a criminal appearance, their
neglect is worthy of part of the condemnation
usually visited en the heads of criminals.—
Every slave state between the Gulf of Mexico
and the Delaware river has cost this govern
ment singly more than all the free states to
gether. In the cotton states they are unable
to pay the expense of keeping up the post
routes, while the custom houses in those
renowned localities of consumption do not pay
the officials engaged in their management. It
may well be asked, What have these States
done to lose all they allege they have lost ?
What has Virginia done for her own progress,
the arts and sciences, that she should claim
such great , pieregatives ? What has South
Carolina ever achieved but treason 4. What has
Alabama ever accomplished in her own im
provement 1 And Florida, Mississikii, Louisi
ana and Texas, what have they all done to
take a position before the world, proclaiming
that they have been oppressed by a govern
went into which oppression never can enter.
The history of the government is one series
of benefits conferred on these very states.—
Georgia, of , all the slave states, has succeeded
in organising her labor upon a basis of some
dignity ; and she has gained what reputation
and wealth she enjoys because in Georgia white
labor and mechanism are recognized for ,their
respectability and power, ,But in the . other
States, the reverse has been the practice, and
the reverse also bas been the result.
If the credit of this government commanded
a premium while it was burdened and disgraced
by states that were unable to contribute to its
wealth, it must increase in proportion as these
elates relinquish their claims to its bounty, and
become immeasurably great when entirely re
leased from their embarrasment. That the suc 7
,cess of the Government is based upon its labor,
no one acquainted with its progress will Arles
tion. The free states, from the oldest to the
youngest, have all expanded and extended their
energies and influence from the adoption of
their present form of government. They did
not do so by the aid of any advantage conferred
upon them by the Federal Government, but
simply by their own energies, the energies of
thiiik „ bor which they encoursgad and protected.

Mg its strength—and from these, pushing their
own interests forward, they now constitute not
only the mind and muscle of the Federal Go
vernment, but the activity and energy of th •
age. Their geographical expansion during the
past forty years is not the least wonderful il
lustration of their power. From thebanks of the
Ohio river they have expanded and stretched
their limits until they are almost lost amid the
snows and wastes. of the Rocky Mountains,
from whence they have been taken up and car
ried to the shores of the Pacific Ocean. It is
such evidences of ability-that create credit for
the nation at home and abroad. It is these
triumphs, too, that have excited the jealousy
and resentment of a corrupt aristocracy in the
South, who, unable.to cope with the energy of
the nation, are determined to arrest its improve
ments by destroying its government. Those
very men, the traitors who are assailing our
nationality are as much disturbed by the credit
of the nation, as they are by the right
and power of its free government. All aristo
cracies are maintained in power by the burdens
which are heaped on the people. Were it not
for the debts of England. and Austria, the aris
tocracies of both nations would Cease to rule.
Desiring to imitate such a condition of affairs,
the aristocracy at•the Sonth, are provoked with
the credit and prosperity of the country, dis
cover in both their doom, and are therefore
determined to destroy all if possible.
The confidence in financial circles, manifest
ed for the stability of the government, is. one
of the best signs of that times. ;,The•fact of our
unbounded credit while buidinedwith expen
sive states, and their threat to absolve thqn
selves, will increase this credit. When the re'
bele have become weary of barren conquests,
when they have become disgusted with the
passions they excited and aroused—and when
they feel the poverty and disgrace which are
their doom, they will begin to count the cost
and the difference between being in a Union
where they were supported and remaining in a
positionef antagonism that entails only pover
ty, burdens and beggary. We then must note
the price of stocks.
Rom or Houoa. —ln all of our exchanges
outside of the rebel country, we find lists of
companies that have mustered for the service of
their country. These muster rolls are truly
rolls of honor. Every man whose name is
on these rolls, will be the heir of an honor as
proud as that ever accorded to any patriot, and
as just as ever was bestowed by a grateful peo
ple. In this contest, the soldier is not called
on to expel a foreign foe, nor is he asked to
fight a mercenary band of hirelings. His ene
my are those whom he once cherished as friends
—those with whom he once eat salt, chanted
the same national songs, and gazed with devotion
on the same emblem of a like nationality.
They have betrayed and trampled all these in
the dust—they who swore to defend and main
tain the national honor, have given that up
to serve ambition's lust, and the honest; true
and devoted portion of the American _people
are called on to contend with fratricides instead
of foreign foes. As it has been , forced on us,
let it be so until these rebels are taught that
there is power in public virtue, and a force in
the patriotism of the people, which neither per
fidy, treason or rebellion can overcome. Let
those.who have taken up arms to maintain the
nationality and preserve the Union, not falter
because they will be compelled to turn their
weapons on a portion of their fellow citizens.
Ingratitude makes a most desperate enemy of
any man—and hence the enmity of the South.
Tatum is but one powder mill in Virginia and
eight in Maryland, and : nine in the rest of the
South, while Delaware. has nine and Pennsyl
vania ' sixty seven. From , these .figures it will
be seen that if we could keep possession of
Maryland and Delaware with their powder
mills, the solitary powder mill ir . l Virginia
would be the only one to supply the South.

WHAT CAN NORTHERN WOMEN Do ?—What,
says the New York Post, can a woman do f
Everything. She can give her husband, son or
brother cheerfully to the holy cause of liberty
and Union. With noble and earnest words
she can fire the hearts of laggards, and nerve
the arms of her dear ones who go to fight their
country's battles. She commands in every
household, and on her prudent management it
depends how much shall be contributed from
the family income to the support of those
whose husbands or fathers are away on the
country's work. If she is brave and energetic
she can Make it possible for many a man to
serve his country who otherwise will have to
curb his spirit and stay at home. It belongs
to her to say "Go." Let her not say "Stay."
In every social circle it is the part of patriot
id women to organize, and .provide of their
spare means and by the labor of their hands
for the support of those in their circle or neigh
borhood who are deprived of their regular in
come. There must be a patriotic find in every
village, township, neighborhood and ward in
the land ; and the chief contributors to this
holy fund will be the noble hearted women of
the country. Where they can lessen their ex
penses they will do so, and whatever they can
save in dress or in - various other needless ex
penses they will give to this.
But more even than by their personal exer
tions they can help the good cause by their
spirit and example. That the women of the
revolution deprived themselves of theit tea
was not a very severe blow to the enemy's
commerce, but the example of resolution and
principle thus set before the men of the nation
had a mighty force. Women move the world.
If they are,brave, men dare not be cowards. If
they are patriots, treason disappears from the
land. If they deny themselves tor their coun
try's sake, no man will hesitate at any sacrifice.
If they toll, men will gladly work double hours;
and if they show by noble deeds and patriotic
words that they ate devoted to liberty, no man
will take back his hand from the sword.
There is a great work for the women. of Ameri
ca in this day of freedom's peril. The nation
cannot do withbut them. It needs their brave
self-saczifice. It needs their presence, their
voice and their example in the home circles,
where the influence of women is supreme, and
controls and shapes the thoughts and , deeds of
men. Of old, when a Spartan mother handed
her son his shield, she shield, "With it, or on
it." Let every woman of the land show the
same spirit of patriotism, and she will do her
share for the great cause of Liberty and Union.

on Wednesday. A vein of oil was tapped, and
a spout thrown up two hundred feet in height.
A crowd collected to see it, when the oil tock

persons instantly, whose bodies were consumed
in the flames. Mr. Bowser, of the firm of Row

he died at 3 o'clock, A. M., on Thursday.
Thirteen were dead at four o'clock P. M.,
Thursday, and ten were not expected to live
twenty-four' hours. Thirty-four persons in
all are known to have been burnt, and
as there were many strangers present, it
was supposed many more have perished. A
son of H.. Gardner, of Michigan, was burnt
to death, and a portion of his body was
recovered. The legs and arms, and a
portion of his head were all consumed.—
His remains were brought down the Le Clare,
in charge of Mr. M. H. /Kelsey, who is convey

There were four wells consumed in the vicinity,
and also a barn belonging Mr. Buchanan, Goble

The owners of the soil at this welt lost two

when the affair occurred, and gave us a graphic
account of the whole transaction.

The States in our own immediate vicinity
have the following :
New York , 418,846
New Jersey 18,984
Including the military of Delaware, Mary
land, Kentucky, Missouri and Western Vir
ginia, the remainder in the secession States
would only have 760,000 against 3,500,000 in
the Union. Irimen they cannot have above
one-fifth; in munitions of war one.tenth - ; in
money one-twentieth, and in justice of their
cause only one-hundredth part of what we have
in the Union. The result cannot be doubtful.
