TEE UNION-TIE CONSIITuTION-AND
THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW.
Wednesday Afternoon, June 5, 1861
Some of our cotemporaries, and among them
the Pottsville Emporium, seem to have imbibed
the notion that the TELEGRAPH, as the central
organ of Republican principles, should defend
the action of every man whom the Republican
party has placed in power, directly or indirect
ly, as the case may be. If such was really our
duty, the task would indeed be a hopeless one,
and the TELEGRAPH soon become one of the
least interesting journals in the state. But we
do not admit that this is either our duty or our
mission. We have nobler purposes to serve
and purer ends to achieve—although, when the
truth justifies the defence, we have never hesi
tated to defend any public officer who has been
wrongfully assailed or unjustly charged with
malfeasance in office or - dereliction of duty.
But we cannot allow ourselves to be drawn
out as the apologist for that which has brought
disgrace upon the state, and is sought to be
made, by our political foes the means of cast
ing odium upon our noble political organiza
tion. We cannot suffer the interests, the ambi
tion and the speculations of individuals to out
strip and embarrass the principles and the pow
ers of the Republican party. When we do,
we will indeed be guilty of dereliction of duty,
and unworthy to be recognized as the central
organ of the grandest and noblest political or
ganization that has ever wielded its in
fluence for good in the government of
this country. In the frauds to which
the Pottsville Emporium alludes, and the allega
tions that have gone forth in relation to Gov
ernor Curtin, we have occupied throughout, a
frank and independent position. We believe
that wrong has been committed, but we
spurn the idea and the charge that Governor
Curtin has had either directly of indirectly any
knowledge of these frauds, until their full
effects and existence were divulged in the
camps among the soldiers. We have the best
of reasons to know, also, that he has been
using all the power conferred upon him by the
Constitution, to ferret out and punish the guilty
party, and that so far as his individual and of
ficial feelings and convictions are concerned,
he is above the slanders which have been
originated and circulated by his enemies, and
the sequel will prove that the public service
in his hands has been as sacredly and as vigi
lantly guarded as it has been in the hands of
any of the Executors who have preceded him.
The immense responsibility which has been
forged upon the Governor—the new and multi.
plied care and duties growing out of the mili
tary organizations of the state, with the crea
tion of new and the increase in old depart
ments, have made the Executive office of Penn
sylvania no sinecure, and if errors grow out
of these changes and re organizations, they
are not justly chargable to the Governor.
RELIGIOUS READING FOR THE SOLDIERS.—We
are glad to hear that the work of furnishing
the soldiers of the Federal army with religious
reading, which was originated by the Ameri
can Tract Society at'Boston, is being pushed
forward with great success, and its extent is
limited only by the means placed at the dispo
sal of the society by the Christian people of the
North. The Society's series of fifteen books,
so small that they can be easily carried in the
knapsack, and yet printed in clear type, and
filled with matter just suited to the men in
camp, is just what is needed fur this purpose.
We understand that Hr. Broughton, the agent
of the Society, went to Washington a few days
ago, to arrange for a more thorough and sys
tematic distribution of these books and the
Society's soldier tracts, and took some of them
with him. As he passed through the camp of
the soldiers at Havre de Grace, he handed out
one of the books to a soldier. As soon as it was
known that he had the books, the men ran af
ter him by scores, crying out, ",Please, sir,
give me a religious book." His stock was
soon exhausted, and he could have distributed
hundrethr more if he had had them. President
Lincoln, Glen. Scott, Mr. Cameron, and other
prominent military gentlemen gave the work
their heartiest endorsement in writing. A r _
rangements were made for a systematic and
thorough distribution of the books and tracts
among the troops who may be stationed at
Washirqton or in its vicinity. The work will
be under the supervision of the Pastors and
the Young Men's Christion Association in
Washington. We hope the churches will see
that the society does not lack means for meet
ing all the demands made upon it in this good
cause. The following note from Secretary
Cameron shows how highly he approves of the
`• Having seen specimens of the publications
named in the within circular (the circular of
the Society) I am highly pleased with them,
and heartily endorse the object of the Ameri
can Tract Society at Boston. These are pre
cisely the things the army needs, and it is to be
hoped that the good people of the country will
promptly furnish the means for a new supply
Ins Lads dangerous to have a prudent enemy
than gm indiscreet friend.
THE COMING SESSION OP CONGRESS.
In a day less than a month Congress will be
in session in the city of Washington, in obedi
ence to the call of the President. The fact
has already elicited much comment, both as
to the nature and degree of the proceedings
which are to be had, the temper and disposi-
tion of the members of the Senate and House,
and the length of the session which has been
called. The immediate business, of course,
will be the treason that has so convulsed the
country. There can be no mistaking this
treason ; there must be no misapprehending
it ; and nothing more fatal could possibly
occur than for Congress to enter on a lengthy
discussion of the merits and the demerits of the i
rebellion which they will be asked to assist in
crushing. Therefore a short session is impera
tively demanded as a matter of policy, to show
to the rebels that the government is in earnest
to defend itself against all insurrection, and as
a matter of fact to prove to the world that we
are able, under all circumstances, to maintain
ourselves against ourself—and with no profer of
compromise or conciliation, demand that this re
bellion cease, or at once proceed to put in force
the most vigorous measures for its suppression.
We are contending with the meat desperate
cabal that ever existed for mischief. We are
dealing with the most depraved and besotted
combination of political desperadoes, villains,
assassins and pirates that ever imbrued their
hands in innocent blood, or threatened the ex
istence of a just government—and it therefore
behoove Congress promptly to organize, as
promptly to discharge the duty for which it
was convened, and then again, as common
citizens, join with their loyal fellow-citizens in
every vigorous measure to bring those to justice
who are at the bead of this rebellion-0 teach
the blind followers of traitors the folly and the
danger of their course—and to replace the
legitimate government once more upon the
foundations of peace and permanency. The
country does not need much legislation at this
time. The crisis by which we are surrounded
and embarrassed is the result of too much le
gislation, coupled with a misconstruction of the
constitution to serve the basest ends of party
purposes and individual ambition. What we
want is action, the legality of legislative recog
nition of the policy of the administration and the
authority vested in the President to push the
war—more men and money—and when Con
gress has given us these, it has fulfilled its le
gitimate functions, and should of course ad
journ. The country has the most unbounded
confidence in the administration of President
Lincoln. The loyal states and the loyal people
in the seceded states, are willing to trust to its
policy for a suppression not only of the rebel
lion, but for an example of traitors such as will
put an end to treason forever.
We earnestly join in the . hope, therefore, so
generally expressed, that the approaching extra
session will be judiciously short, and that its
proceedings will be characterized by the deco
rum and dignity becoming the high and holy
purposes for which it was convened.
INVENTIONS OP TIIE ENEMY.
The organs of rebellion are hard put to very
often for material to keep up the sensation and
terrorism with which they minister to the pas
sions of their followers. They alternately
deride and denounce the northern people, as
cowards and assassins. If we are not cringing,
craven, money-seeking sycophants, we are
blood-thirsty invaders sent to despoil southern
homes, murder southern children, and outrage
southern women. These stories are all gotten
up to suit localities. Among the desperate,
the men who have filled the annals of the south
with blood, the people of the north are re
garded as cowards. Among the really pure
and honest people, who live in retired peace,
and whose hospitality has given the south all
the reputation that it possesses, the force
which the Administration has been compelled
to call out, to maintain the law, is described as
hordes of ruffians, libertines, assassins and rob
bers. These stories are all concocted by the
southern press to serve their purpose of false ar
gument and misstatement ; and therefore, much
will depend upon the moral rectitude and bear
ing of the advance federal troops. The people
of the south regard the people of the north, in
proportion as they are informed by their own
organs, so that the opinion they have formed
of us is anything but favorable. They must
derive other and more correct opinions, by an
actual contact with our troops. When that
takes place, many of the ridiculous stories and
absurd exaggerations circulated to the preju
dice of northern men, will be dissipated, and
with them much of the rancor and opposition
which are now felt for and waged against
the government. Until then, we can afford to
treat these silly inventions of the enemy with
the contempt that slanders always merit.
T7TR TIDE TURNED
When the Amazon with its regal pomp of
waters meets the tidal wave, borne on by the
mighty ocean, a struggle ensues, producing a
rare phenomenon. Across its mouth for one
hundred miles the waters are heaped up into a
stupendous breastwork as If to repel the en
trance of the advancing tide. The obstacle is
vain ! rolling in its mighty billows with a regu
larity and a rhythm which seems like joy at
conquering a foe, it takes its course, till the ad
verse wave falls away to a ripple, and its own
bright and healthful waters fill to the brim the
largest and the smallest of the tributary streams.
This seems to us no inapt representation of the
present state of our national affairs. Rebellion
rolls onward, bright with its hopes, gay with its
success, and seemingly strong enough to keep
its own in spite of all. But it has met the
ocean tide. National pride, love of liberty, self
preservation, have all merged into one grand
element which is now directing its exhaustless
energies to repel and overcome the daring pro
gress of evil, and rear as it may in its full might,
it must go down before a force which has no
parallel in history for the unwavering and over
whelming resolution with which it is applied.
The events of the last few days indicate that
the tide has turned. The most timid and des
ponding must feel that the movements made are
but the precursors of a grand advance before
which every rebellious stronghold and trust will
fall, and by which the glory of the American
nation will be restored to more than its original

AN ELOQUENT ARGUMENT.
The right of secession is made the theme of
all the messages of the traitor usurper Davis,
and in all the orders issued to the rebel army,
this right is discussed and insisted upon with
the desperation of men engaged in a desperate
cause. They found their claims to the privilege
of upholding their secession doctrines, on the
plea that men have the right to choose their
own form of government—that the form under
which we existed as a Union was the result of
revolution, and that by revolution they have
the equal right to change, reconstruct or utter
ly abolish that form which to them has become
repugnant as a government. This is a false
and specious style of argument, heretofore ad
duced to justify treason. It was the plea and I
argument of Hayne, the famous South Carolina
Senator, who, in 1830, gave birth to the plans
which Davis is only now attempting to carry
out. He, too, claimed that the people had the
right of revolution as a means of resistance to
the law, and that secession was a common right
of all the states, which none of them should
yield, and which any one, at any time, could
practically carry out. In reply to this doctrine,
Daniel Webster uttered the following language
on the floor of the United States! Senate, Jan
uary, 1830. It was in the course of his famous
reply to Bayne that Mr. Webster said:
"When the gentleman says the constitution
is a compact between the states he uses language
exactly applicable to the old confederation.
He speaks as if he were in congress before 1789.
He describes fully that old state of things ex
isting. The confederation was, in strictness, a
compact; the states, as states, were patties to it.
We had no other general government. But
that was found insufficient and inadequate to
the public exigencies. The people were not
satisfied with it, and undertook to establish a
better. They undertook .to form a general
government, which should - stand on a new basis
—n9t a confederacy, not a league, not a com
pact between states, but a constitution, a popular
government founded in popular election, di
rectly responsible to the people themselves, and
divided into branches, with prescribed limits of
power and prescribed duties. They ordained
such a government; they gave it the name of
a constitution, and therein they established a
distribution of powers between this, their gen
eral government, and their several state gov
ernments. When they shall become dissatis
fied with this distribution they can alter it.
Their own power over their own instrument re
mains. But, until they shall alter it, it must
stand as their will, and is equally binding on
the general government and on the states."
The argument here used afforded Gen. Jack
son the power, three years afterwards, to put
down nullification. The doctrine then held
was that a state not only had no right to se
cede—that it had no right to revolutionize in
order to remedy an evil ; but that the federal
government had the power to resist such se.
cession—to put down such a revolution or re.
hellion with the force of arms, and punish
those engaged in it as traitors. Upon this
identical doctrine, defined by Webster in his
reply to Hayne, and applied by Jackson in his
operations against the nullifiers, the Admin
istration of Abraham Lincoln base the policy
which controls them in the present crisis.
Had Mr. Buchanan been true to the doctrine of
Webster and Jackson—had he used the power
conferred upon him by the Constitution for
the suppression of treason, this rebellion would
not only have been crushed in its incipiency,
but his administration would have been res
cued from much of the odium that now at
taches to it. There will be no failure, how
ever, on the part of those now in power. The
traitor Davis, too, will find that • before he has
half finished his arguments and appeals in
favor of secession, what remains of his life
and time will be needed to secure his own
head from the hangman's halter, and his soul
from the devil's clutches. Henceforth the
days of secession are numbered, and the race
of traitors limited.
AGRICULTURAL prospects in Europe are not
favorable. A London paper says : "All agri
cultural reports, except those from the South
of England, are most gloomy. The trees are
loaded with blossoms, but the cold nights and
the blighting northeasterly winds prevent
the blossoms from setting." in France there
are the same complaints. The vine growers
anticipate a bad vintage. This intelligence is
of great importance to agriculturists in this
country, and should impel them to extraordi
nary efforts to obtain heavy crops the present
Clams M. Crxr, American Minister to Rus
sia, has written a letter to the London Times on
the American struggle, in brief but decisive
terms. He says that the revolted states can be
subdued, but it is not proposed to subjugate
theta, but simply to put down rebellionists.
England's true interest is to stand by the Union.
He inquires if England can afford to offend the
United States, and is England so secure against
home revolution and foreign ambition, as to
venture to sow the seed of revenge? He con
cludes by asserting that England is the natural
ally of the United States.
Two NATIONAL INTELLIGINNeNN says that an
important change has been made in the dis
patch of the mails to the southern states. To
western Virginia, west and north of the Blue
Ridge, they are to be sent to Wheeling by way
of Harrisburg and Pittsburg ; to Alexandria
and the remainder of Virginia they go to
Washington, and to the other southern states
to Louisville, by way of Harrisburg and Pitts
SPBAKING of the First Vermont Regiment,
the Rutland Courier of last week says :
While they were in camp at Rutland the
first ten men in one of the companies took a
fancy to see how much ground they could
cover. They accordingly formed a continuous
line upon the earth, and measured sixty-seven
feet and six inches.
SHARP WORDS.-A. W. Randall, Governor of
Wisconsin, concludes a message to the people
of his State in the following words :
"The people will never consent to any cessa
tion of the war, forced so wickedly upm us,
until the traitors are hung or driven into an
ignominious exile. This war begun where
Charleston is—it should end where Charleston
was. The Supreme Ruler can but smile upon
the efforts of the law loving, government
loving, liberty-loving people of this land, in
resisting the disruption of this Union. These
gathering armies are instruments of His ven
geance, to execute His judgments—they are
His flails, wherewith, on God's great southern
threshing floor, He will pound rebellion for
