THE UNION-THE CONS9I'I'uIION-AND
TEE ENFORCEMENT OF TEE LAW:
Saturday Afternoon, June 1, 1861.
APPOINTMENTS .13 Y TEE GOVERNOR
ROD. WILLIAM M. MEREDITH, of Philadelphia,
Attorney General of the State.
Gov. Curtin was very fortunate in the se
lection of Mr. Meredith, because he is really
one of the ablest lawyers in the Union. N o
man in the country bears a better reputation—
no man enjoys to a larger degree the confidence
of the people, and no man could possibly bring
with him into any position more self-respect
than Mr. Meredith will carry with himself into
the position of Attorney General of Pennsyl-
Mr. Meredith has been for many years a
prominent lawyer at the ablest bar of the
nation. In Philadelphia, where he has prac
ticed from the day of his admission to the bar,
he is regarded as the leading councellor in a
profession that has made the bar of that city
renowned all over the country. In the ad
ministration, of Millard .Fillmore,' Mr. Mere
dith was Secretary of the Treasury—in which po
sition he was eminently successful as a financier,
and where, too, he displayed his devotion to
his native State of Pennsylvania, by uphold
ing her interests and defending her rights
whenever either were in danger or attacked.
It is not out of place to add here, that Mr:
Meredith was the friend and confident of the
immortal Henry Clay, and one of those old
line whigs who stood by the gallant Kentuck
ian in all his struggles for human rights and
We congratulate the people of Pennsylvania
on this appointment, particularly at this time,
'when the public service seemed to be sinking
under a load of dreadful suspicion. By this
appointment, too, the Governor has assured
the people that 'his a.dministration will be con
ducted in compliance with. the pledges and
principles on which he was elected.
GENERAL SCOTT has been engaged in some
splendid military movements, caution and re
serve during the progress of this rebellion.
He has been abused impatiently by those who
do not understand his calculations, and he has
been traduced as cowardly by the foes who
have themselves been led to victory under his
guidance, and who will yet live to writhe and
cry for mercy beneath his chastising blows.
General Scott is acting wisely. He refused to
move until he had the material at his command
which would justify precipitation, invasion or
battle. He has steadily and surely been en
gaged in occupying Washington city with the
volunteers, while he throws forward the regu
lars so as to meet the enemy if he should be
organized and prepared in any considerable i
numbers, either far attack, invasion or resist
ance. General Scott has shown a disposition
to save life while he is endeavoring to contri
bute his share to the safety of the country.,
There is a calm dignity about hii movements
which indicates the confidence he has in his
resources. Had he precipitated raw recruits
into a new territory—scattered them over a
hostile country, and left them ignorantof strate
gy, feint or march, to the mercy of the rebels,
the country would have doubted his loyalty,
and the world questioned his military sagacity.
In connection with these apparently slow
movements and calm.positions . of the Old Hero,
there is a practical spirit in which they are
accomplished, which speaks well for the busi
ness and order of the War Department. Be
tween Gen. Scott and Gen. Cameron, Secretary
of War, the greatest confidence and friendship
exists. They operate 'together. The keen sa
gacity, the stern energy and indomitable will
of the Secretary of War infused their spirit
into the military ardor and martial skill of the
veteran Captain, and together, these tivo men,
each representing a spirit and an element of
great vigor in the governmen, they are accom
plishing wonders while others are grumbling
at commonalities. Long may the veteran
Scott live, to serve his country. Long may
he survive to be its ornament and its pride.
And when he has sheathed his sword, and gar
landed himself with the victories he is about
to achieve over rebellion, may he pass to the
enjoyment of that repose in peace which he
has so often earned in the service of his coun
WE CAN ONL reply to the Reading Daily Tines
that it became perplexed with the paragraph at
which it endeavored to exhibit its sharpness
while foraging through the columns of the
TELPARAPH on a plagiarising expedition—and
when it learns to print more original articles of
to own, we will explain those, in our own col
umns that so offend the fastidious taste of the
hypercritic of the Times.
Tau New York News goes into raptures over
the prospect of the recognition of Southern pi
rates as " belligerents" by England ! We
presume it would be equally rejoiced to learn
that Jefferson Davis had seized the Capitol and
proclaimed himself President de facto. That
journal is making rather liberal drafts upon
the popular forbearance.
MAT fifteen million loan, so often taken in
the Confederate States, is still offered,
WHAT 1T COSTS?
War costs blood, limbs and life. View it in
any light we can or regard it as we may, life,
limbs and blood are the result of war. The
best disciplined troops are often the soonest de
stroyed—the worst equipped and armed are
those which enter the battle field under the
most inauspicious circumstances. In duty to
the soldier, a state or a nation that is at war,
is in honor bound to see that he is disciplined
for the fighting he is expected to do. If he is
not so trained, the consequences are certain to
be disastrous. If he is not armed equally in
all respects with those with whom he is ex
pected to engage, the consequences will cause
blood to flow. If the best officers are not de
tailed to command and lead him into battle,
his life is not only in danger'from the foe, but
it is placed in jeopardy in the false position he
may be forced* take by an ignorant com
mander. The soldier suffers, whoever may be
to blame. He it is who takes the brunt of
consequences. Others may assume the respon
sibility—but the • soldier in the ranks must
take the sabre's gash and bullet's hole. We
'must think of these things as we count the
costs of this war. And we must think too, that
while we are carping, 'eliminating and re
criminating, the blood of our soldiers is at issue
in our complaints—human life is at stake while
we are discussing human frailties and short
comings. Never before was an army organized
under such difficulties as those which beset
and hamper the organization of the army sum
moned to the field by the President of the
United States. Military skill is measured by
civilian criticisle—and thus life, limb and
blood are all in danger, while human beings
are cast into the scale with human judgment, to
be disposed of as lightly as we get rid of our
articles of barter or production of trade. It
seems as , if no man knew anything, while all
men understood all things. The press talk of
battles, Beiges, storms and victories as lightly
as they do of politics. They direct the move
ments of armies, challenge the judgment of
soldiers, impugn the motives and question the
ability of captains, as recklessly sometimes, as
they do those of their cotemporaries—forget
ting, the while, that this too costs blood.
Who will dare to say that this is not wrong
No sensible man, however modest be may be to
express himself on other subjects, will hesitate
to declare that there has been too much inter
ference by civilians with the organization of
the army. Men deficient in military know
ledge—intent on gain instead of glory—have
intruded themselves in this business, and
when is too late to remedy this evil, we will
find that it , too will cost an immense treasure
in blood, limb and life.
It is terrible to contemplate this condition of
affairs—but it is not too late to apply a reme
edy. Let the people await with more confi
dence the organization of the army. Let the
authorities who have it in charge be untram
died with this ceaseless complaining—let the
military authorities shake off the speculators
who have fastened themselves like leeches on
their resources—let the military power assert
its supremacy within its own department—
let it rise above petty jealousy, mean spites
and small revenges—let the press be cautious
and judicious—let all be more discreet—be
csuse if we do not, we must, in our anxiety to
discover frauds and denounce wrong, inaugu
rate a bedlam in our own miciat, and dedicate
to confusion and anarchy those who should be
disciplined for war's rigors and battle's dan
The telegraph is a great concern—a very use
ful concern—a very fast concern, but it won't
do to tie to. By aid of the telegraph, says a
facetious and truthful western cotempOrary, the
rebel General Beauregard has been enabled to
perform the wonderful feat of being in six large
southern cities at precisely the same moment
of time. The telegraph can raise and concen
trate armies with wonderful dispatch. For
instance, the telegraph in the last ten days has
concentrated not less than one hundred and fifty
thousand men at Harper's Ferry. Adding to
gether. the different numbers of rebel troops
marching into Virginia, as announced by the
telegraph for the last ten days, and we are in
possession of the startling fact that not less
than half a million of traitors are in arms in
the Old DoMinion. Then the telegraph has
skirmishes at will. It has naval engagements,
and fighting on land. We, the newspaper edi
tors, glorify or mourn over the result of the
different conflicts, according as we love .or hate
the stars and stripes. Scarcely is the ink dry
on the sheet that records our glorification or our
lamentation, when the telegraph advises us to
keep our nether garment on, as there hasn't
been any fighting anywhere ! The telegraph is
honest. We have had too many evidences of
its disposition to correct errors to charge it with
uttering deliberate falsehoods. The telegraph
startles us at night, but it quiets our nerves in
the morning with the declaration that there
was not a word of truth in the last evening's
dispatches. The telegraph magnanimously
gives the country the benefit of all kinds of
reports, and, in effect, says to the publishers
and readers of newspapers : " Gentlemen, you
pays your money, and you takes your choice."
But, after all, neither the telegraph nor the
newspaper men are to blame. The agent of the
associated press sends over the wires such news
as he deems to be reliable. The special corres
pondents of papers do the same. One is not
responsible for the dispatches of the other.
Each does his best to get at the truth, but con
tradictions will sometimes occur. The publish
ers of papers must take what comes—they can
not tell the true from the false. The readers,
who pay their money, must "take their choice."
There should be some remedy, some punish
ment devised and provided to put an end to
the praetice of imposing on the public, in a
crisis like this, with false reports and exagger
ated accounts. If a law to punish libel can be
kept in , just force and operation, a law to pre
vent reporters by telegraph from impairing
business and convulsing whole communities
with unnecessary panic, could also, be enacted
and carried. out. The subject is worthy the at
tention of legislators, and the press, that is
made to pay and suffer most by the swindle,
should take it in hand and continue , its agita
tion until a remedy is devised and applied.
Pennopluania telograpk, Saturbaig 'lftertioott, June 1, 1861.
TER UNION will find friends while there are
two States remaining on its bond—two stars
and two stripes upon the folds of its glorious
flag. Of all the achievments of modem times,
the American Union is the grandest. The alli
ances of nations for defensive and aggressive
purposes, have been sundered and destroyed,
while those who were allies suddenly became
belligerents. The holy alliance to crush toe
elder and the greatest Napoleon, in'which the
world joined to conquer one man, because he
was individually the moat liberal and the most
powerful of all the potentates, finally was chug.
ed . to an unholy compact to destroy liberty, and
was joined in by the same France 'which it
once crushed to assist England in rebuking
her old ally, Russia, in. the Crimea and the
Baltic. Our Union is not an alliance, and
therefore should not be swayed by passion. It
is not merely .a political bond, and therefore
should be regarded solemnly. In this Union
we have attained our importance and reached
our position beside the most formidable na
tions and enterprising people that have names
in the history of the world. Why then should
its prosperity be impeded and the greatness of
its character reduced by internal disagreements
and civil war ? By every consideration,
whether of enterprise and prosperity and hap
piness at home, •or character and usefulness
and importance abroad, should our states and
their inhabitants be impelled to Union and to
the steady march of progress in the cultiva
tion of the arts of peace and advancement of
civilization and human' liberty, under the
proper guardianship of government and re
straints of law, in whom we have strength
and power and importance and character.
In disunion we lose these advantages and
fall below the standard of excellence we have
reached, and which it ought to be our pride to
maintain. Why then should the friends of the
Union be regarded as the enemies of liberty
and of human progress, and taunted and de
spised for their adherence to what is termed an
obsolete idea ? There is nothing yet obsolete
that American valor has secured and American
genius sustained, and the Union is in the front
and the foremost and uppermost of all Ameri
can achievements and hopes, and'we hope we
shall find friends that will cling to it while
there are two States included on its bond, two
stars and two stripes upon its flag..
Du. JAMES C. Wurremm, publishes a letter in
the North Aineriean and United States Gazette, in
which.,he labors to excuse himself of the suspi
cion and the charge of being a traitor, by de
claring that his letter to Jeff. Davis was written
as a joke, at a time when he considered the
Southern Confederacy of no account or im
portance. If this is really the truth, the Doc
tor has been justly punished for his indiscretion
and nonsense. He explains the sympathy
which he expressed in other letters that were
published in southern papers, and which after
wards found their way into the northern prose,
with the lame excuse that the north had been
imposing upon the south for the last twenty
years—the very argument which the south now
uses to justify its treason. We have no desire
to injure Dr. Whitehill, but, like too many
other sympathisers with treason, he only dis
covered his error when he found that the people
of the north to a unit were loyal to the Union.
Repentence will do the Doctor more good than
explanation—and we recommend him to silence
instead of prominence in this entire matter.
To one who has written to us on this subject,
we must express our admiration and respect,
alike for the evidence of eloquent devotion and
love as a wife, as well as for the courteous dig
nity and zeal with which she seeks the defence
of her husband. She is undoubtely an orna
ment to her sex and country.

of Alexandria, was shot and killed last night,

The earnest hope entertained by many at
