Friday Afternoon, May 24, 1861
The following letter of resignation was hand.
ed to Gov. Curtin this afternoon :
Harrisburg, May 24, 1861.
Governor of _Pennsylvania :
For reasons which appeal to myself respect
I cannot consent to continue any longer in con
nertion with your administration.
I then fore teuder you my re:ignation of the
office of Attorney General uf the State.
Under the regular telegraphic head, we give
the details connected with the movements of
the federal troops in Virginia, inaugurating the
campaign in that region, and preparing for a
desperate struggle with traitors and assassins
who have been gathered from all the rebel
states within the borders of the Old Dominion.
The most melancholly part of the account, is
the announcement of the assassination of Col.
Ellsworth, the gallant and accomplished young
leader of the New York Z.aives. While iu
the act of hauling down a secession fi ig he was
shot by a concealed assassin, and ex irad al
most instantly. The as-assin was subsequently
discovered, and asour account states,summarily
dealt with. Col. Ellsworth was a nal 1V43 of the
city of Chicago, aid hal been appointed to a
position in the regular army solely on account
of his military ardor and proficiency, by Presi
dent Lincoln. His death will cause not only a
sensation f regret throughout the country,
that one so young and brave should have fallen
so early in his fight for his country, but it will
fill the hearts of men with horror and in
dignation, and excite a spirit of revenge such
as will fall heaviest on the traitors of Vir.
The Springfield (III.) Journal, the home organ
of President Lincoln, pays the following hand
some compliment to Gen. Cameron, and at the
same time makes acknowledgments which are
equally as just and honorable. The friends of
the Secretary of War in Pennsylvania only ask
that the people of the great west should fairly
scan his character and his ability, and the
opinion everywhere will be the same as that
expressed by the loured, while an acquaintance
with the man Is all that is needed to dispel any
prejudice which may have been created either
by misrepresentation or malevolence :
Gen. Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, is
winning golden opinions for himself from all
sections of the country. His able administra
tion of the affairs of the Department of the
Government, over which he presides, demon
strates conclusively that he is " the right nom
in the right place. At such a time as this
the War Department is the most important
branch of the public service. It needs, emi
nently, a quick and prompt man—a enau of
firmness, decision, sound judgment, and 01
good business habits. Itt all these qualities
does Gen. Cameron excel, as the mauagemeut
of the War Office in his hands absolutely shows;
and the country is fortunate in having secured
his services at a time and in a place so well
calculated to call his abrities into play.
We are aware that in the West, especially,
there was at the time considerable feeling at
his appointment, but it was only because be
was not known. The prejudices which was felt
against him, arose only from ignorance of his
ability and his patriotism, and the people every
where now freely acknowledge their error and
are glad of the opportunity, which has present
ed itself, to do Gen. Cameron Malice. The
sentiment of the country, we are sate in say
ing is now thoroughly in his favor. He is an

While it would be foolish to doubt the cour
age or the valorof the south, itis equally unjust
to suppose that the muss of men in that locality
approve of the movements of those who have
precipitated the southern states into rebel
lion. We profess to have some knowledge of
the people of the south, and we profess also to
understand the motives which led to this usur
pation of power, the utter distruotion of social
order, the banishment of just political influ
ences, with the suppression of the voice of pub-
lie opinion, on all occasions and in every vicini
ty. In the initiation of this rebellion the peo
ple were not consulted. In the deliberation of
its details, they were not only excluded from
participation, but they were debarred from
even the poor privilege of a presence at its
proceedings. The congress of the confederacy
sat with closed doors. Its acts were so m way
secrets, known only when they were applied in
forcing money from the people, or the people
into the army—and thus, at one time boasting
of the ardor of the southern masses and their
passion for revolution and disunion, these same
leaders absolutely confess their own want of con
fidence in that, which they would have the
world to accept as the endorsement of their
own conduct. We were told at the commence
ment of this rebellion that it was an ebulition of
teet I
ails before ouia
the people, a spontaneoug outburst of the
masses, resolute for a change, and determined
to sever their connections with the old forms of
a government under which they had so long
lived and prospered. We were told that the
first congress like the assemblage of those
earnest men who pledged their lives, their
fortunes and their sacred honors, that man
might enjoy the inalienable rights of life, lib
erty and the pursuit of happiness—that the
congress at Montgomery was a deliberation of
men for the emancipation of man from oppres
sion, and that the southern confederacy would
eventually become the asylum of the oppressed
of all lands. Let any man read the record so
far, and judge to what extent this asylum has
been vouchsafed. The details of confiscation--
the description of personal wrongs—the repu
diation of honest debts—the d.solation of
homes—the destruction of business—with the
disregard of social as well as political rights,
form a sad spectacle indeed, in the progress of
a revolution that aimed at the moral and poll
tical elevation of mankind, and professed to
inaugurate a new era in the history of free
lona. The world has never been so basely
outraged and imposed upon, by acts and pro
ceedings such as now disgrace society and busi
ness at the south—nor has Heaven in its mercy
ever withheld its avenging and chastising hand
from more apparent wrongs or more desperate
individuals than those who are hurrying the
southern masses to the doom of everlasting
The delay of the leaders of this rebellion is
the best evidence of their lack of confidence in
the people whom they profess to lead. For
thirty years they have been engaged in con
cocting the treason they are now enacting ; and
during the last four years, when every de
partment was under their control, when they
had completely subsidized an entire political
party, uutl held iu Weil /Vitale, the disposition
and the conscience of an imbecile President,
they had the power, and imagined they had
so organized their treason, to make the con
quest of the government an easy business.—
the mere usurpation of power was deemed
trifling; and now that they have assumed this
power—now that Jeff. Davis has arrayed him
self almost in regal robes—professing an au
thority as absolute as thk which is wielded by
Nicholas of Russia—he shrinks from the pas
sion of the mob he has aroused, and cowers
before the mutterings of that whirlwind
on whose wings he will be borne to a traitor's
grave. His generals refuse or hesitate in bring
ing their forces to an encounter with the troops
of the government—they pa'use with an uncer
tainty that evinces guilt as well as a lack of
confidence—and we predict that when the bat
tle does come, the ruffians and assassins who
have forced many a brave and gallant man to
rally beneath their flag of slime and fangs, will
receive their death warrant from the hands
that they would have imbrued in the blood of
freemen. We have no longer any confidence
in the ardor of the southern army. We believe
that it is composed of material in which its
leaders themselves lack confidence, and that
when it is marched within the proximity of
free soil and free men, desertion will do more
tor its disbandment than death from the muz
zles of loyal rifles and muskets. If this is not
the case, why this delay on the part of Jeff.
Davis? If the southern army is composed of
so many heroes, so much chivalry, and such
daring volunteers, why have they not won the
victories belonging to such men, and conquered
the people whom they hold in such contempt?
Will some of their allies in this city answer
these questions?
AN ARMY EXPRESS. A pressing necessity
having arisen for a safe and regular mode of
communication between New York city and
the various army stations at the South, a num
ber of capitalists already engaged in the trans
portation and forwarding business have organiz
ed an Army Express, operating specially in
New Yolk, Harrisburg, Baltimore, Annapolis
and Washiegton, by railway and the Chesa
peake and Delaware canal. As they intend to
devote themselves to the assistance and com
fort of the volunteers, and to offer large facili
ties to the Government for the transportation
of supplies, int ndieg to do no other kind of
Express business, they have engaged in a pa
triotic enterprise.
THE TELEGRAPH SEIZURE by the United States
Ilursbals in the principal cities of the north,
west and east, has caused great excitement
among a certain class of politicians, who have
been so dreadfully moved in their sympathy
for the southern rebels. It is presumed that
these despatches will divulge a systematic co
operation with treason on the part of certain
parties in the north, that will give a new di
rection to the energy of the government, and
perhaps compel it to arraign others besides
those already arrayed against the government
in hostile a attitude.
Tun Massachusetts Legislature adjourned
Pennspluania Wally ettegtapb., fritrap 71firrnoon, Alan 24, 1861.
We have heard, for some time, the rumor
that Jeff. Davis had employed and succeeded
in gaining the alliance of a large number of
Indians to assist in fighting the battles of trea
son. The tomahawk and scalping knife are
to be introduced, to render this war in reality
the barbarity for which the south now strug
gles. The Indian savage is aroused by the
story that he is indebted to the civilization of
the north for the destruction of his wigwams
and the loss of his hunting grounds. He is
told that when this civilization is arrested, he
will be permitted again to roam along the banks
of the Delaware, the Hudson and the Merrimac,
and that for every scalp he brings, yet quiver
ing and bloody, to the sight of Davis, his sav
age orgies will be extended, and his brutal op
portunities for rapine increased. In the Rev
olutionary War, a British Peer of the realm
protested against the employment of the Amer
ican Indian, as anti-Christian, and unworthy
the strength of brave and manly contestants.
In this unholy crusade against free institutions
and a pure government, Jeff. Davis calls in
the aid of these savages. While he is doing
this, and while the Indians are planning their
deeds of blood at Harper's Ferry, the people
of the north are hesitating as to the policy of
allowing free negroes to participate in this
struggle. Those who have been so eager to
denounce and misrepresent the objects and de.
signs of the African, have not a single word to
utter against the employment of the Indian,
with all his savage propensities aroused.
There are thousands of brave negroes in the
north, who would willingly lay down their
lives to serve this government. There are
thousands mo re who pant for a revenge and a
reparation as just as that which ever fired a
white man's bosom—and yet, for the sake of
humanity we have counseled against the accep
tance of such assistance in this war, while Gov,
Curtin has used his official influence to stop the
organization of such troops and prevent their
transit over our territory to any of the states
of the south for aggressive purpose ? How long
will this policy be deemed just and wise, if the
rebels persist in arraying against their Christian
brethren hordes of merciless savages. Let them
beware of retaliation ! Let them beware how
they provoke the anger as they have already
aroused the indignation of the people of the
north ! If the rebels of the south desire to
make this a war of brute force, savage passion
and no quarter, they have but to inscribe all
this on their banners, and they will be accom
modated to the full extent of their brutality.
There is a foe in there own midst, more terri
ble and more destructive than the subterranean
fires which smoulder in the bowels of the
earth. Let them, therefore, beware how they
turn the savage Indian loose !
The telegraph announces the appointment of
the Hon. Joseph Casey as a Judge of the United
States Court of Claims, one of the most labor
ous, responsible and respectable positions in the
gift of the Federal Government, in which its
credit and financial resources are involved, and
whara tho jatigeg bcootno tho arbiters of the
most important interests and issues between
the individual citizens and the Government of
the United States. Aside from Mr. Casey's
qualifications as a jurist, his known and re.
spected integrity as a man, we feel a peculiar
pleasure in announcing this appointment, be
cause we have the best of reasons to know that
it was the unanimous choice of the President
and Cabinet, after having been urged on them
by the most prominent professional and poli
tical gentlemen of Pennsylvania, alike as a
tribUte to the man who was to be distinguished,
and a regard for the interests which were to be
pr.,tected and promoted. Mr. Casey will carry
with him into his new position the energy, the
industry and the integrity which made him so
popular in the profession of the law in Pennsyl
vania, and which won for him such an exten
sive and lucrative practice. In a political view,
those who remember the struggles, the dis
cussions and the fearful contentions of the last
political campaign, when prejudice and passion
were both invoked to defeat the Republican
State and National nominees, will recollect the
part which Mr. Casey took in those proceedings,
a part at once bold, frank and manly, and
which contributed largely to the triumph that
made Curtin Governor and Lincoln President.
We congratulate Mr. Casey on the honor of
a position which he so largely merits and so
fairly won, and we feel confident that we are
joined in this congratulation by the people of
the city of Harrisburg.
As DESERTERS begin to leave the camp of the
traitors we also begin to gain information of
the discipline, confidence and anticipations
among the rebels. There is very little doubt
that great dissatisfaction exists in those en
campments, and that the closer the proximity
of the rebel troops to the free states, the
greater this dissatisfaction becomes. The fol
lowing, from the Lancaster Express, throws ad
ditional light on the subject:

Ferry to Chambersburg, made a little revela

of freedom favoring it—they will desert in

the statement that he had contributed to the

terday ; good securities maintained about pre
vious rates, but the fancies generally were
weak and neglected. In breadstuffs there was
no new feature, and a moderate business doing

EDITOR TELEGRAPH :—Being among those who
have left the " Potter Rifles " for home, we
wish to make a plain statement of the facts
that have led us to take this step. Soon after
the call of the President for the first quota of
men from our State, we had an opportunity of
enlisting; believing that the flag of our nation
was endangered, we readily rushed to its sup
port. We were told to take no clothing with
us excepting such as we wore, as the Govern
ment would supply us immediately on our ar
rival in camp. Our kfl4fCh for seventy five
miles was through a new country, over rough
roads, rendered muddy by recent and heavy
rains. We arrived at the railroad station cov
ered with mud, wet, weary and Lot sor nearly
in this condition we entered Camp Curtin.
We expected on our arrival here to be in
dulged, not with the comforts of home, but
at least with clean clothes and a sufficient sup
ply of healthy food, and to be mustered into
service and placed under drill. We have been
here about three weeks, and no member of our
company has received a single article of
clothing, and during a part of that time, ninety
six men have subsisted on the rattous of sev
enty-seven. We were enlisted for three
months' service ; we came before that requisi
t ion was full ; we were not received. Twenty-one
of our men then went home ; many of us
were indignant at them fur this course, be
lieving that true policy required us to enlist
for toe war. A full company expressed our
willingness to serve for that time, yet we were
still kept out of the service and KEPT 1N Ragas.
All this W 4 could bear ; hunger, cold and fa
tigue could be endured ; but we had loved our
State as we did our mothers; we were proud of
her reputation and jealous of her honor, and
when we received news from Washington, and
the camps b low us, of the situation of our men
there, and the jeers at the ragged army of
Pennsylvania," we determined that we would
not be the passive instruments whereby that
honor was to be further prostrated. We are
ready to serve our country for the war—we are
ready to face the enemy on any battle field—
and we are ready to submit to all the necessary
exposure and privations of a soldier's life ; but
we request—aye, demand—to be treated with
decency. and as man.
For the ladies of Harrisburg and all other
places who have manifested an interest in our
weilfare, we tender our sincere thanks ; their
effirrs have been a link binding us to the
homes we left behind us, and preventing us
from forgetting that we were yet surrounded
by the luxuries of civilized society.
With this statement of facts we are willing
to submit our actions to the impartial judg
ment of the people of the State and of the na
Correspondence of the Telegraph
COCKEYSVILLE, May, 22, 1861.
The site of Camp Davis is as delightful and
as defensive for safety as any in the country.
We are about twenty feet from the railroad,
with a splendid stream of water the same dis•
tepee in our rear, and two others on the right
and left, with a dense grove in the vicinity.—
l'he people in this neighborhood treat us with
the utmost hospitalty, crowding to the camp
to learn our wants, supplying us with every lux
ury that the season and the country afford,
and carrying us to their homes to share their
comforts and pleasures. The prospect of re
maining here for a considerable time, has in
duced the boss to make such permanent ac
commodations for themselves as will promote
their health and comfort.
I have just heard that the remainder of our
company, the Cameron Guards, were attacked
at Cockeysville, about four miles from our
camp. but it has since been ascertained that
none of them were seriously injured. Our time
will doubtless come next. We are ready for
them. If the secessionists get the "bummers"
in their hair, it will keep them scratching for
some time, and induce them to leave at least
the vicinity of this camp. I have also heard
that company D. captured a lot of arms at Texas,
a town on the railroad just below this point.
We are under great obliaatioos to a Mr.
Sparks, a farmer in this neiehborh'od, who has
been earnest in his acts of kindness and favors.
His house and all he owns are at the disposal of
the friends of the Union, and for his kindness,
the "boys" feel bound to protect both as long
as they are encamped in this vicinity.
Mactorrnmosr.—That fs one of the new States
of Secessia, according to the Cincinnati Gazette:
a State that is, or is to be, in some terraincognita—
which must be further South of the Onto river
than Kentucky. But in the mean time, Ma
goffin being, by favor of the Democracy of
Kentucky, Governor of that State, he insists
ou believing that that State is veritably Ma
gcfnudom—a State of Secessia, in at least the
Paulo post future tense ; and it in his cups he
he could hit the humor of the conjugating
gentleman, once heard of in Paris, (not that iu
Bourbon county, Kentucky, we believe,) no
doubt he would presently put Magoffindom
through all the moods and tenses, and make
Kentucky an auxiliary verb of Secessia in some
coujug ttion. But hear our facetious contem
porary :
Gov. Illagofetn has pronounced. His pronun
eiamento will be found among our dispatches.
He declares that Kentucky will have no part
nor let with either the separate or the Carded
' erate States, or any other States ; and that she
will arm herself, but will turn her arms neither
against the Confederate nor the United States ;
so we suppose she is arming against herself.
Perhaps there is more truth in this than the
Governor intended, for we suspect that Ken
tucky is arming against him rather more than
against an) invasion. The length of Magoffin's
periods, and the style, indicate that there must
have been stops between for refreshment. The
State of Magoffindom is out of the Union ; and
not in the Confederates, but is in a state of be
tareenity—like Matunaet'S PA%
