APPOINTMENTS BY THE GOVERNOR
Charles F. Abbott, of Philadelphia, has been
appointed by Gov. Curtin, as one of the com
missioners to take testimony in the alleged
frauds in the clothing and supplies furnished
to the volunteers of Pennsylvania. Mr. Abbott
was a member of the last legislature, and is
regarded as a gentleman of strict integrity and
great business capacity.
The commissioners now are, Benjamin Hay
wood, of Schuylkill county, Jacob Fry, jr., of
Montgomery county, and Charles F. Abbott, of
It is understood in official circles that anoth
er levy of one hundred thousand men will soon
be made by President Lincoln. This will afford
the opportunity to those who did not succeed
in being accepted in either of the other two
calls, to find a place in the ranks under the
flag of their country, and from what we know
of the intent eagerness of the people, we have
no doubt that there are twice this number now
waiting patiently to enroll themselves.
Of the eighteen thousand men ordered to be
enlisted for the navy, eleven thousand have
already offered and been accepted. It is ex
pected that this entire levy will be filled by
the end of the month.
TO OUR SOLDIER CORRESPONDENTS.
We are grateful to the many talented young
men who crowd the volunteers forces of the
state, for their evidences of confidence in the
TELEGRAM, in the shape of ably written letters
from the city of Washington and the various
encampments in this State. These letters,
'however, are not of the character that our
readers desire to peruse and digest. We want
news—accounts of events as they occur, move
ments as they actually . or are likely to take
place. Mere speculation or comments, of course
well enough where they are made, are not the
contributions which increase the interest of a
Journal—and therefore we earnestly urge it
on our correspondents to confine themselves
strictly to the details of current events, and
their letters will be acceptable to us and profit
able to the reading public.
THE UNIFORM OF TEE OHIO VOLUN
The adjutant general of the state of Ohio
has issued an order, in which he adopts and
describes the style of the uniform to be worn
by the volunteer and militia forces of that
state. A grey fatigue cap, wtth a straight
visor, and a black welt or cord in the seam of
the crown and upper edge of the band, has
been adopted for the private. The jacket is
to be in Zouave style, grey color and standing
collar. This jacket is to fall four inches below
the belt, being cut away from the lower but
ton, having sufficient spring to fit the hips
and back snugly, so as to give full freedom of
action to the limbs. Cuff, collar and jacket to
be trimmed with half-inch black braid, set
back half an inch from the edge. Army but
tons, medium size, three on each cuff, and five
in front, buttoning from the top down to the
belt. The trowsers are to be of the same ma
terial, with a black welt or cord on the outer
seam. Shirts to be also grey, trimmed with
This uniform can be procured at a price
ranging from seven to ten dollars, according to
quality of material. Of its beauty and appro
priateness, the reader who has a taste for style
will at once be convinced.
DOL. DARE'S regiment, so long encamped at
Perryville, of which so many hard stories have
been told, is thus described by the Baltimore
Republican, a violent rebel print, as it passed
through Baltimore yesterday :
"The troops were clad in neat blue uniforms,
with felt hats, and armed with the improved
muskets, and presented quite a formidable ap-
pearance. Accompanying the troops were nine
large freight cars, heavily loaded with camp
equipage, which were transported through the
city to the depot with teams."
MAJOR GENERAL licenzrzazin, on entering
western Virginia with his Ohio troops, issued
a proclamation, assuring loyal citizens of peace
and protection and non-interference with their
slaves, and inciting them to sustain the gov
ernment and repudiate the traitors.
Ova blockading fleet, cruising off the delta
of the Mississippi, bas destroyed the fort on
Ship island. The port of Galveston is also
blockaded, and several rebel vessels have been
fired into and stopped.
The New York 71st regiment has returned
to Washington, and been succeeded in Alexan
dria by Col. McDowell's sth Pennsylvania re
giment from Washington.
ANOTHER Sourttnas ROBBERY.—The Southern
rebels are trying to rob General Taylor of his
laurels. They have the impudence to call Da
vis "the glorious hero of Buena Vista."
Menem) HARRISON, the Union candidate,
has been elected to Congress from the Seventh
Ohio district, to succeed Tom COrivln.
Are the states of this Union so many muni
cipal parts or portions of one great general and
well-defined government, or are we so many
independent commonwealths, owing our first
allegiance to the local or state, and obeying
or yielding only to so much of the law of the
general government, as seems either expedient
at the time obsdience is demanded, or politic
and necessary for the prosperity of the single
state. The State Rights doctrine, if admit
ted, if adopted, and applied as a principle in
defining the relations between the state and
federal government, must put an end at once to
the Union. If we declare and determine that
the citizen owes his first allegiance to his State
—that his state is sovereign in defining his du
ties, that its presumed rights and imaginary in
terests are supreme to any vested in the fede
ral or national government, then of course the
Union becomes worthless. It is no Union
either in principle or in practice. It confers
no benefit on those who are parties to it—is
capable of no good for itself—and is entirely
unworthy of confidence or respect. But those
who constructed the Union, did not so estimate or
esteem its powers and its benefits. The Union of
the American states was framed to correct the
very abuses under which we are now suffering.
Our compact was made, so that as a whole, a
unit, if any abuses, if any corruption, or any
attempt at usurpation was manifested by a part,
sufficient strength and action of what remained
would exist to arrest and crush the evils and
desperation of the revolting portion of this
Union. Our fathers did not suppose that the
Union would be an uninterrupted association
of peace and harmony, because human nature
is against such . a presumption, and therefore
they made express provision for the mainten
ance of our compact, by investing the federal
government with sufficient power to vindicate
its own authority and enforce its own laws.
The question at issue, then, is, shall the Union
be maintained? The effort has been made to de
stroy its power and perogative. A new form of
government has been organized in direct vio
lation of a constitution which the men engaged
in this treason had sworn to support, and from
which oath they have never been absolved.
They have levied armies, and ,declared war
against a government in which they were equal,
in which all their interests were invested, and to
which they were bound by political obligations
as well as the ties of consanguinity. Then the
question comes up. Shall the government su f fer
itself to be broken down by an element which it was
created to control ? The answer to this is of course
in the negative—and hence the present mili
tary attitude and operations of the federal au
thorities. Tee administration of Abraham
Lincoln does not seek to destroy a single right
of any of the states of the Union—it aims at
the vindication of the rights of the people of
all the states, by endeavoring to preserve the
Union. It has not declared a single law o
any of the states revolting to be unconstitutional
—it has not construed the constitution so as to
affect the rights, as guaranteed by that instru
ment, of any of the states of this Union—and
feeling thus confident in the strength of the
laws which gave it power, its whole force and
authority are aroused to preserve, not destroy,
the Union. We can make no other question
out of this trouble—we can regard the question
in no other light than that of a mighty people
struggling to maintain an administration that
is laboring to preserve the Tilden. The ques
tion, then, is emphatically for th Z,"5-cron,
TAR .T.crxr z.tral: OF THE FUTURE will be both
dreadful and severe against those who have
attempted to divide the Union, and who have
succeeded so far as the perjury and treason of
themselves are concerned. Future generations
will read with emotions of wonder and admira
tion, the progress of this nation from its birth
to the treason which sought its overthrow.
The story of the revolution will be to them as
it is to us, the recital and description of brave
men's deeds for a holy cause. The signing of
the Declaration of Independence will be by
them esteemei as the boldest consecration
which men ever made for the benefit of man
kind. Our progress from that war through all
the changes and magnificent developments of
a young government forcing itself proudly
among the nations of the world, will be traced
as astronomers trace the appearance and disap
pearance of constellations—dazzled before their
brightness, struck with their magnitude, and
perplexed and confounded by the impenetrable
space into which they rush and are lost forever.
And as our greatness is contemplated from the
war which gave us so much new territory—
bringing new commonwealths almost yearly
to the Union of States—opening new ave
nues of trade, creating new wants for
the activity and the supplies of commerce
—imparting fresh impetus and encouragement
to industry—enlarging our aspirations and in
creasing our intelligence—until we had become
the most powerful and most prosperous nation in
the world. Then will the student and philoso
pher wonder what new right, what imposed
form of government,what better state of society
was proposed to be established by those who
sought the usurpation and the distinction of a
form of government such as had produced and
established the results which the history of
our youth and development will present for
their contemplation. The judgment of the fu
ture will indeed be severe against those who are
now arrayed against the federal authority,—
Time will only more fully expose the real dan
gers of their machinations, and it will not need
their success to show to future generations,
that the rebellion in which they are now en
gaged is more than an effort tojtrengthen slave
at the expense of free institutions. And what
a cause is this on which, men claiming to be
honest, to rest their reputation ? The future
will join its execrations to the condemnation
of the present, and consign their memories to
THE Philadelphia Stock market was firmer
and rather more active yesterday than for some
time past, and with the exception of State
loans prices generally were a shade better. In
breadstuff's there was not much change, and a
limited business to note in most kinds. Noth.
ing was done in cotton, groceries and provis
ions worthy of remark, and whisky was inac
tive; the receipts, however, were very light.
Pentuiptuattia eticgrapl), et ) nrobap 7tftentoon, ,triaP 30, 1861.
The tone of the southern press, and the per
sistency with which they are abusing the
northern people, misrepresenting their position
politically, their condition socially, with their
real designs in this contest, prove conclusive
ly that the leaders of the rebellion fear the
change which must follow a knowledge of the
people of the north, and that will grow out of
the acquaintance with them by the people of
the south. The newspapers, preachers, poli
ticians and orators of the slave states have
practiced falsehood and defamation, purposely
to deceive and defraud the masses of the
south. That which was manly and ennobling
in our institutions has been described to
southern hearers as cowardly and degrading.
The progress we have been making has been
depicted as a wild hunt after fortune—a bitter
contest for gain, by an unholy crusade against
right. Our civilization has been derided as
the evidence of our ignorance, in making labor
the elevating quality of man—in constituting
it free as it should be—in educating it to
render it powerful—in placing it on an equality
with the elements of our government, and in
admitting it to the enjoyment of all the ad
vantages and reciprocities of business and soci
ety. All this the political leaders of the south
have misrepresented. They have described
our civilization as the worst of barbarism—
comparing the mighty masses of the north to
the rude Goths and Vandals who overran
Rome, polluting its temples with their horrid
orgies, desecrating its shrines with their rude
ceremonies, and spreading terror and desolation
wherever their march extended. The end of
these misrepresentations approaches, and as it
does approach, those orators and presses become
the more desperate and dissolute. The false
hoods which they have been retailing in the
south against the artizans, artists and laborers
of the north, are about to recoil on themselves,
as the armies of the government march to the
suppression of treason and rebellion. Instead
of the rude and wild barbarians which the pee
ple of the north have been described to be, the
people of the south will discover gentlemen,
imbued as generously with chivalry as any of
those who alone esteem themselves as the re
presentatives of the chivalric and heroic ages.
They will discover among our brigades men
who understand every branch of science—in
our regiments, the most accomplished scholars
—in our battalions, the representatives of art
and science, and in each company some grand
and glorious evidence of the civilization, refine
ment and intelligence that prevail in the vil
lages, towns, cities and commonwealths of the
north. It is the fear of this discovery that
induces this ebulition of abuse on the part of
those who attempt to speak for the people of
the south, and who have been deluding them
with the false notion that their fellow citizens
at the north are their enemies. They fear this
exposure, because they know that it will also
expose their corruption and falsehood, and sub
ject them to the anger and resentment which
they are now endeavoring to turn to the de
struction of this government.
The battle that brings the masses of this na
tion together in hostile array, will end in
their union and better understanding, if it
does not result in the utter defeat and des
truction of those who labor, not only for
their own elevation, but to undo the good they
cannot emulate, and stay the progress
which they cannotize--e-Peee-
We have been printing a great many accusa

the military organization of this state ; written

SNEAKING TREASON.—Certain newspapers in

troops, of whose interests they as ume to take
exclusive possession !—They will ot consider
how impossible it is that, say in musylvania,
where this most unnatural war was suddenly
forced upon us while in a whollyunprepared
state, that we should, in the space three or
four weeks, accomplish miracles. No doubt
some of the rations of the troops have not
been us full and as good as they should have

even some excuse for this, in the hury they
had to be got up. There was not at.ll times
sufficient material of the right guilty and
color attainable at the start, and upu some

who knew very little about sewing. `t, seems
that the Fourth and Fifth Pennsylvalia Regi.

by an agent sent by the Governor of he State
to examine into the matter. But if Cl. Hart

WHAT THEY FEAR
HEAR ALL SIDES.
All these matters are nuts for the fishy press.
They have eyes only for the shady side of every
question. They condemn the troops for firing
on the insurgent rabble at St. Louis as a cruel
act ; thei denounce the coup d' ete of the Gov
ernment for seizing upon the telegraphic dis
patches with a view to ferret cut the traitors
in our midst ; they objected to the troops
marching through Maryland: they see nothing
in all the proceedings of the insurgents, how
ever dishonorable, treasonable and heinous, to
call forth their condemnation. Even the firing
into Sumter and the other aggressive acts of
the enemies of their country, they pass with a
mere narrative, copied from rebel sheets or
those in the north of the same fish-like smell
as their own. All the documents issued by
Jeff Davis and his fellow conspirators ; all the
proceedings of their Congress, and of the Legis
latures while deliberating upon the question
of secession, their resolutions and ordinances,
&c., are greedily seized upon and laid before
their few readers in detail.
They also copy all unfavorable articles from
the English and French press upon the civil
war, together with everything else presented
calculated to magnify the rebellion—the griev
ances which the insurgents charge upon us—
the long period and the immense expenditures
of blood and treasure which must ensue before
the South can be subdued, and then insinuate
that they will not remain subdued.
If the loyal press, justly indignant at this
direct aid and comfort rendered to the enemy,
bear down upon their treason, they plead the
freedom of opinion, refer to their rights under
the Constitution, assail your judgment and
your motives, and wind up by claiming to be
as good patriots as the rest !
THE DOYLESTOWN DEMOCRAT gives the follow
ing thrilling poem as the song of the Cameron
Regiment in Washington city, named after the
distinguished Secretary of War. It breathes
something of the ardor and spirit of the old
Scotch clan calls, and is capable of a magical
effect in music. We submit it to the vocalists
of Harrisburg :--

TO CONTRACTORS FOR SUPPLIES.
We hereby give notice to all those who may
be contracting to furnish supplies to the State,
under the recent appropriation of three mil
lions, that, having received the power under
that Act of appointing inspectors of all sup
plies, and other power also in reference to the
settlement of claims, width was not delegated
to us under the previous Act of April 12th, we
shall hold every contractor to the most rigid
accountability in the settlement of his claims,
and the inspection of his supplies must be of
that character which shall prevent any impo
sition upon the State, and protect the volun
teers who have so nobly responded to its call ;
and no supplies will be paid for until they have
been inspected by officers who shall have been
duly appointed for that purpose.
