THE UNION-TBE CONSTITUTION -AND
THE ENFORCEMENT OF Tki LAW.
Monday Afternoon, June 17, 1861.
In no age or at no history of the world, has
any other portion of the transactions and pro
gress of nations, arrived at such a peculiar and
startling influenced, as that of the Journalism
of the United States. It is a lever in the gov
ernment of the country, before which legisla
tions, congresses and cabinets bow with respect
and fear—respect for the vast and varied ability
engaged in the conducting of these journals,
and fear for the ignorance and impudence which
too often cling to it for support and mainte
nance. No one will deny that with the good
that has been accomplished by the influence of
American journalism, much evil has also been
clone—an evil growing out of the recklessness
of those who control the columns of newspapers,
as the willingness and ability of the rich to
suborn and corrupt the editorial fraternity with
the bribery of-money, the promise of place and
the flattery of distinction. The large organs of
business in the commercial emporiums of the
country are the first to look after pelf, even
while they are flattering themselves with the
conviction that they are the sole representa
tives of an honest public opinion in this world.
The late crisis proved this fact in relation to
the commercial organs of Philadelphia and New
York. These same organs were tainted with
treason and affected to be moved by justice
when they refused to denounce rebellion,simply
because they feared that the speculations of the
wholesale and retail trade were at stake, and
that the rebel states would destroy the cotton
and calico aristocracy of their commercial re
gions. In one week at least two of the
principal commercial organs of New York
turned from a direct course In favor
of the south, to a tack running more directly
north. As soon as the merchants of
the latter city discovered that one of
the impulses and objects of secession was to re
pudiate the northern indebtedness of its south
ern advocates and adherents, they lost their
love for the chivalrous south—they dis
covered the worthlessness of a southern trade,
and becanie theme ie da

vocatee of coercion. Their organs ;retuned
their pipes, changing the measure of their
songs from fulsome adulation of the sunny
south, to the most sulphuric , denunciation of
the chivalrous Ms of that same sunny land.
Repudiation done what appeals to patriotism
could not accomplish. Long accounts and re
fusal to pay—the downward tendency of stocks
—the abridgement of fashionable luxuries—the
curtailment of easy privileges, acted like a
charm on the mercantile nabobs of tlotham, who
in turn acted on the sentiment of their organs,
and both together yielding to the - power of, an
overwhelming public opinion, were forced to
become loyal beyond their will, and are now
the most bitter among the bitter denunciators
of the south. Another class of journalism is
that which is constantly pandering to the hopes
and fears of the people, by concocting and pub
lishing the most exaggerated statements of
facts—the invention of improbabilities, and the
use of important state secrets, in order to create
a sensation or increase the edition of their
paper. Just at this time, the government has
suffered immense evil from this class—an evil
by which the enemy has been put into the
possession of the plans and movements of our
military chiefs and organizations, thus enabling
that same enemy 'to escape when he would or
should -have fallen, had the -military confidence
been preserved, an easy and a wortihiess prize
into the'lands of -the government. This sys
tem has compelled the government to take
charge of all the telegraph batteries along the
line of march and operation of the army—and
when thii order has been fully enforced, we
will get 'rid, first, of the sensation journals,
which only 'excite without satisfying public
opinion, because such newspapers cannot exist
by the calm discussion of facts and principles—
and, second, the government will be relieved
of the embarrassments resulting from a too free
abuse of its confidence, by a most flagrant and
unjustifiable use of its secret plans and opera
tions., 1 The inflated circulation of such news
- papers,to which we have alluded,
_is, what has
done mischief—and in reality, is what has con-
tributed largely to the creation:of our nations
Among the: L organs of, our coin
mercial emporiums, the practice has been com
mon to depreciate northern sentiment, power,
influencaand courage. Tha:New Eric Herald be
came popular in the south, because of its vituper
ations of the people of the north—and the south
ern people, forming their opinions from the
impressions, they caught from these same com
mercial organs, have been led to, the verge of
that dark abyss from which it is too late now
to rescue themselves.
—We not attempt to suggest a remedy
for the evils growing out of the abuse of the lib
erty of the press. That there should be some
rule or - law to regulate and avoid the occurrence
of these evils, those who are engaged in the
newspaper publishing business themselves ad
mit, becanse while only a few of the larger and
wealthier establishments are engaged in the
evil, the entire proftesion suffers by its prac
tices. Something should and must be done to
purge the press of the larger cities, aud when
that is accomplished; the stream of journalism
throiighobi ihe Couhtry will run clear and
fresh, and the people as well as the govern
ment, will resort to it in confidence and respect.
The Convention which is shortly to be held in
Washington city will doubtless endeavor to
effect this reform ; and it such is the object of
that meeting of editors and publishers, we trust
that they will succeed in every particular.
COTTON AND CIVILIZATION.
We alluded on Saturday to the destiny of the
south, asserting that the tendency of the rebel
lion which the advocates of slavery were waging
against the existence of the Union, must result
in the final overthrow of slavery itself on this
continent. We maintained this, while we also
asserted that such a result was not among the
achievements which the government aimed at
_while it was struggling to maintain its power
and authority. The idea that the south would
forever monopolize the cotton market of the
world, would be proven, amOrig the results of
this very revolution, to be false, a fact which
a cotemporary also maintains by declaring that
the cotton-clothed world will have to get its
material elsewhere than from the southern
states for a time ; and though this may be felt
to be inconvenient, it will be the means of
remedying a great evil. The secession states
must be prevented from realizing their cotton
crop by both a land and water blockade. This
is the overruling necessity of war, and will
insure a speedier victory over rebellion ; but in
dependent of this, the cause of civilization all
over the world will be promoted by it. The
interior of Africa has been opened of late by
remarkable discoveries by intelligent travelers,
and it would seem as if the resources of Africa
were delayed to these latter ages for the sake
of removing American slavery. Africa will
soon be the great source of cotton supply. The
cotton there grown is reported to be of longer
and better staple, more like our Sea Island cot
ton, than any grown in India. It is now being
cultivated by European, chiefly English, capi
tal ; and the African laborers are being taught
to cultivate the plant with more care. Every
year sees an increase of arrivals in English ports
of African cotton, and the native. African king
doms and rulers are learning the arts of civili
zation, and especially that it it is more profita
ble for them to raise and export produce than
to sell their countrymen as slaves.'
It required the force of a hurricane—in the
shape of a civil war like the present, in which
the South has forced the North to raise the
standard of freedom against the attempted
domineering spirit of Southern supremacy---to
root up the hold on the world which slavery
had got by its cotton products, raised exclu
sively by slave labor. All Europe is now en
listed against slavery in the most practical way.
The cotton manufactories of the world are
thrown for a while on their beam ends—the
usual sources of supply have been forcibly stop
ped—that on which they most depended ; and
new sources must be encouraged. Such sources
are within ready reach. Africa anal Asia
offer these sources ; and the civilizing of the
African and the Indian will be hastened by the
turning of hundreds of millions of pounds ster
ling 1111.0 LUC 7113111110 ur 4uvew ut4l,llJ/16, ILIDLCLSUL 111
into the hands of a cotton South American Con
Slavery will be abated and finally extinguish
ed on this continent, and Africans will rise in
freedom and intelligence on their own soil.—
This seems to be the certain result of the
present God-sent war. Let us therefore rejoice
and persevere accordingly. The petty suffering
of the day will terminate in a glorious result
to this country and to humanity. Slave
and free labor cannot long coexist. One
must drive out the other. They are like
oil and water—impossible to commingle.—
The cotton plant, alter the bread plant, is most
essential to man's civilisation. There is no
limit to the increase of the consumption of cot-
ton except in that of the race itself. We are a
cotton-clothed humanity. Cotton is more suit
able for the wants of all than wool or silk, or
furs or skins of any kind. Cotton, a vegetable
product, is much cheaper to raise and to manu
facture than any of the others, which are all
animal productions. Cotton the world must
have, but it can be obtained in a way consistent
with the progress of the world in civilization.
Habit and custom in wrong courses are too
powerful to change except by violence—by a
greater power raised temporarily to overthrow
them. The manufacturers of cotton only look
to Where they can obtain their supplies most
readily, cheaply, and steadily, and do not look
beyond this point. All or any injustice in the
mode of raising the cotton they did not regard.
It required, therefore, some storm in the hea
vens to change this habit and custom. The
storm is now raging. The dependence of Eu
rope on :a supply of cotton in the southern
states is destroyed for ever. The other sources
are now being resorted to, and the capital and
skill and general power of France and England
is being directed to those countries where cot
ton •can be obtained more steadily and more
righteously, because raised by free labor.
The northern states of this Republic are
therefore fighting.. the great battle of civilize
fion as well as of freedom and political rights.
Immediate action to this was quickened by the
domineering spirit of the south, who think it
better to reign (if they can) out of the Union
thau serve within it.
TEE EVACUATION OF HARPER'S FERRY was an
ticipated by Gen. Scott, and it is currently be
lieved in official circles in Washington, that
the rebels will play the same game at Manase
sas Gap Junction. It is believed also that Gen.
Beauregard, when re-enforced by the retreat
ing troops, will be in command of not more
than 80,000 men, of whom many are ill
clothed and ill-armed, and many sick, for
whom there are small accommodations. They

Pennepluania Malty etlegravb, IllontraD /fttntoon, Junt 17, 1861.
THE PATRIOT AND UNION, on certain occasions
and in spasmodic efforts, has been covering
Gov. Curtin with a sort of slime which it de
sired to be received as praise—but which the
public regarded as of that fulsome, sickening
praise, that damns a man sooner than its bit
terest revilings could possibly damn him. At the
time, we pointed to this fact as significant
that the Patriot snuffed plunder in its suspi
cions of corruption in the military organiza
tion of the state, and true to all its instincts
and practices, that it was anxious for a share of
the pickings. On the principle that they were
"Union men," its'publishers and editors, (and
the latter would form a respectable corporal's
guard,) hoped to wheedle a Republican admin
istration into the belief that they should be
mollified, recognized and admitted to its con
fidence. We have every reason to believe that
the administration has not been convinced of
the superior statesmanlike qualities and wisdom
of these gentlemen—and therefore on Saturday
they retire from their position of general and
unreserved approval of the course of Governor
Curtin, by giving place to an anonymous
communication, in which the Governor is as
sailed with peculiar brutality' and falsehood.
After indulging in a strain of the most misera
ble malignity, charging Governor Curtin with
all sorts of sins, extravagances and corruptions,
the writer appends an "N. B," to his anathe
mas, in which he retracts all his charges. The
editors of the Patriot could not afford to cancel
the "matter" of that communication, after
they had learned that it contained a foul and
malignant falsehood. It must appear, with
the miserable apology appended. It must go
in, like the dagger of the assassin,who, when his
victim is bleeding at his life pores, deems the
reparation of an apology sufficient to amend
the destruction of a life-earned reputation. In
this connection, we protestagainst defending the
devotion of Gov. Curtin—nor will we permit a
word in reply for Gen. Irwin. It is sufficient
for us to point out this additional evidence of
the unfairness of a Journal that has been
secretly and openly at work In embarrassing
the efforts of every honest and patriotic man to
rescue the country from its peril, and punish
those who have been the authors of its wrongs.
It is the reduction of the ancient Judas Isca

SECESSION TRAITORS, when they are taken
prisoners, some of them with their muskets to
their shoulders ready to pull the trigger that
sends a ball to the heart of a Union man, and
others with their hands still reeking with loyal
blood, are placed on the parole of honor and
sent back to their friends assured that the gov
ernment will not punish traitors as they de
serve. When a newspaper correspondent,
however, carried away by his enthusiasm and
apprehensive devotion to his suffering country,
makes a mistake in the statement of a fact, or
allows his enthusiasm to give too bright a hue
to a truth, he is threatened with hanging by
some of the officials of this same government.
POSITION OF THINGS AT iYIANASSEL—The Wash
ington Star of Saturday, says :—The impossi
bility of quartering 80,000 men at Ilanasses
Junction is evident from the fact that there are
not only no buildings for hospitals, lam any
facilities for erecting them, but there is nut
sufficient water for one-fourth that number of
men. The soil is principally of red slate, and
the nearest stream to the Junction is Bull Run,
over five tulles distant. There are no springs,
and when the troops were first 'stationed there,
though small in numbers, the few wells were
guarded, and the water served out like provi
sions. As for washing, that is impossible with
out a trip of several miles.
Oust NATIONAL EXPENSES.---According to the
verbal statement of General Scott last week,
there are now under arms and in the pay of
the government of the United States 230,000
men. To maintain this army, after its equip
ment, will require $1,000,000 annually to each
regiment, or $220,000,000 a year. The navy
will require, in addition, at least half that
sum, so that with the ordinary expenses of the
government, we may safely put down our na
tional expenses at this time at the rate of $365,-
000,000 per year.
GENERAL BEAUREGARD has issued a charac
teristic-proclamation to the people of Manassas.
Like all the rebel crew, his strong point is
lying. He lies about the national troops, lies
about their actions, lies about their motives,
and crowns the whole by charging the mon
strous falsehood that their war-cry is beauty
and booty. The fact is, Davis and Beauregard
are frightened, and this style of raving is in
