TEE MILITARY APPOINTMENTS.
The publication of the appointments in the
new regiments of the regular army has invok
ed considerable discussion. Whilst there are
those disposed to find fault, the opinion pre
vails that, taken as a whole, the appointments
are proper and judicious. Gen. Scott expressed
his cordial approval yesterday to several offi
cials, including the President, whom he •com
plimented upon the satisfactory character of
When the proclamation for the new regi
ments was made, a board of officers was ap
pointed to determine upon the modus operandi
of officering them. This board consisted of
Colonels Franklin and Meigs, and General
McDowell. These gentlemen recommended
that half of the new officers should be taken
from the army and half from civil life. This
plan was approved by Gen. Scott, and has been
more than carried out by the President and
Secretary of War.
All the second lieutenants yet to be made
(over two-thirds of the whole) will be selected
carefully from among the most meritorious
non-commissioned officers and privates at pres
ent in the service.
SPEECH OF GEN. CAMERON,
We invite attention to the speech of Gen.
Cameron on the first page of this afternoon's
Trzroserm The New York Tribune refers to
this effort of the Secretary of War so, justly,
that we content ourselves with re-publishing
its reference in inviting for it the careful pe
rusal of our readers. The Tribunt describes it
as "the most satisfactory declaration of the
policy of the Administration that has yet been
made, and that clause wherein he states "that
the war would continue until all the causes
which produced it are removed, and when it
terminates we shall hear no more of Virginians,
no more of South Carolinians, but shall be all
Americans, one and indivisible," was received
with immense cheering. We ate happy to
have it In our power to say that the activity of
the War Department has illustrated the sin
cerity of his declarations. More systematic
and effective labor has been performed in the
last eight days than at any corresponding pe
riod of time. The country will give him salu
tation and support in the highest exercise
of his energy in accumulating a force which
shall make resistance hopeless."
THE APPOINTIOINT of J. Irwin Gregg, as a Cap
tain in the regular service, made it necessary
for him to resign the Coloneley of one of the
new Pennsylvania regiments just formed. By
a unanimous vote of the officers of that regi
ment, the vacancy thus made has been filled
by the appointment of Capt. Simmons of the
regular army, whose services at Camp Curtin
have been so invaluable in the organization of
new regiments and the various details of the
camp. In order to accept this new command,
Capt. Simmons has been compelled to get the
consent of the War Department, which was
granted only after the understanding that, after
this war had been terminated, Capt Simmons
would resume his original position in the regu
lar army. He has already seen much active
service on the frontier and in Mexico, and is
universally regarded as one of the most efficient
officers of his grade in the Army. We can con
gratulate the new Regiment on the acquisition
of so able a commander, and we can also assure
the most daring of the brave men who compose
that regiment, that the new Colonel will lead
them to where both honor and bullets most
alarm the Second Lieutenants in, the army
just appointed, is Francis E. Brownell, the
avenger of Col. Ellsworth. We also notice the
appointment of dames F. McElhone, to a First

THE STATE ADMINISTRATION.
The Democratic organs of this State, and one
or two in the Republican organization whose
editors were disappointed in their hopes of re
ceiving fat contracts, have at length succeeded
in emptying themselves of the raneor and spite
they had so 7industrionsly cultivated and
cherished for'...the State Administration. The
Democratic organs;particularly, that have been
bellowing for the extinction of party lines,have
indulged their belligerance in this respect to
the , fpliest extent, and heaped every species of
epithet that their malice could invent, up - ori the
devoted head of the Governor of Pennsylvania.
We have been waiting patiently to hear
these same organs respond to the
dications which the administration is now
receiving at the hands of the soldier
himself, and to read in t co umns e ac
knowledgment which such journals as the
New York Tribune is making, that the new
Regiments arriving from Pennsylvania in the
city of Washington, are the most efficiently
armed and comfortably if not gorgeously equip
ped of any that have yet made their appear
ance in the federal city. We have been disap
pointed in these anticipations, but on reflection,
we are not surprised that those who first adopt
ed the cowardly means of traducing the autho
rities in order to embarrass their operators in
this crisis, should now hesitate to do the State
justice, by proclaiming the superiority of our
volunteers. These same newspapers .haye de
predated the ability of Pennsylvania in other
respects on more than one occasion, and to this
depreciation, . with the fawning sycophancy
with which they followed in the wake of the
dough-face influence that has controlled
columns, we can trace as much of the cause of
our present troubles, as we can in the oaths of
allegiance to a rebel power, or the, perjured
treason against the legitimate government of
these States. A certain class of northern news
papers are constantly_aiming at the deprecia
tion of the resources of the free states. They
are steadily emulous in Underrating northern
industry, genius and intelligence, while the
Coarseness of their wit and sarcasm Sparkle
brightest when they'are levelled at the cour
age, the prowess or the martial bearing of the
northern masses. - :It is no difference with
these journalists whether •: we are strug
gling to elevate labor or battling to main
tainlthe Union, their sympathies diverge from
the cause and interests of free white men, to
the succor and encouragement of a universal op
pression of all labor, and 'its expedient subset
vency to capital and the lash.
In this connection we consider it a duty to
print the following article from the Greens
burg 47erald, not that we entertain any but the
frankest sentiments of respect for the gentle
man to whom it alludes, but that - it is our du
ty as one of the humblest of the`organs of the
Republican party in - the State of Pennsylvania,
to preserve its organisation from corruption and
vindicate its representatives from the assaults of
those who hate both our representatives and
tremble before the mighty power of our com
"Penn LINES." —When this war began,
Democrats urged that party lines should not be
drawn, in the appointment of men to positions
connected with the army. Republicans also
'said that we could afford to be magnanimous
toward our opponents. Supposing that a re
ciprocity of that sort, if in good faith mutually
asked and entertained, would tehd to allay
much unnecessary bitterness in party feeling—
a thing rather t be desired at such a time—
we had no special fault to find with the propo
sition at the time. True, Republicans had
everything to ofer to, but nothing to receive
from the other party; for, in no county or bor
ough, anywhere, in whic - a the Democrats have
heretofore had a decided majority, did they
propose to drop party lines, and unite inform
ing a common ticket; while in many cases
where Republicans wets) in the ascendant did
the latter propose to do so.
It so fell out, that Governor Curtin, influenced
bY such magnanimity on the part of Republi
cans, and listening to a clamor fuom Demo
crats, did appoint some Democrats to position—
among them was R. C. Hale, Quarter Master
General. It was not long till the cry was
raised against Governor Curtin, of inefficiency,
neglect,fraud and what not, connected with army
supplies,andthat too as occurring in the very de
partment over which the appointee had exclusive
supervision and control. Here it was, then ,Cur tin
cajoled into giving Democrats office, and then
Curtin denounced by the same party, because
there seemed to be something wrong, in the
very matters in charge of this Democrat, and
where he was alone responsible ! This was the
thanks, then, which Governor Curtin and Re
publicans received, for casting aside "party
' lines," by taking this Democratic repentance
as genuine, and trusting them, rather than men
knowing to agree with us in political Senti
ment and feeling, and, therefore, ardently de
sirous of making his administration both suc
cessful and popular.
With this little bit of experience before us,
we have come to the conclusion that when
Democrats make advances toward, and exhibit
a disposition to be equally magnanimous and
willing to admit "party lines" where they have
heretofore been in the ascendency, it will be
time then for Republican Governors and Presi
dents to consider such a proposition. Then
may Republicans`be willing to overlook Curtin's
departure from the precedent established by
General Jackson, thereby putting it in the
power of his political enemies to damn his ad
Tns BALTIMORE Sow—certainly the meanest
of all the secession sheets published in the
south—rejoices at the prospect of the cotton
factories of Harrisburg and Lancaster being
compelled to cease operations in consequence
of a scarcity of cotton, originating from the
blockade. Such facts harmonize with the ten
dencies and hopes of such journals as the Sun, in
relation to the labors and prosperity of the
people of the north ; but the Sun goes beyond .
anything like the truth, when it imagines that
such stoppages will be psrmanet, or that' the
withdrawal of the operatives from one branch.
of labor in the north, will leave them com
pletely without all kinds of employment.
Where one avenue of honorable industry has
been closed by this war, others, equally as lu
crative, have been opened by, the same influ
ence. The large number of our mechanics
who have gone to do battle for the country,
create vacancies that are supplied for the pre
sent by other labor, which, with the aid of
machinery, and the intuitive knowledge of me
chanics possessed by every northern man, is
able to supply the markets, -and keep trade
and commerce in almost the uninterrupted
course of prosperity for which the north was
before distinguished. It is the perversion of

lence to the passions of those who are pushing
secession to the wildest and most wicked ex
tremities of bloodshed, incendiaryism and high,-
way. , robbery. Therhave been supported with
the idea that the beautiful towns and Cities of
the teeming north are filled with idle, des
perate and; starving mobs—that our fields are
laying waste for the want of labor to cultivate
them—our workshops emptied by conscriptions
for the army—the hum of the loom and spin
dle hushed—the ring of the anvil silenced—
the fires, ,of
,pur .furnaces quenched—and
that all this — business demoralization . , social
_confusion, and industrial enervation have been
the result of the secession of a few bankrupt
commonwealths from a union in which they
have been an expense and a burden to the
states with which they were associated.
The_masses of the north,. today; -are as
prosperous as they were one year ago—if not,
in reality, more so,. because one year ago they
were the unconscious victims in the contempla
tion of traitors—anderrated in courage—mis
apprehendett in intelligence—their resources
depreciated, and their martial force and ability
scorned. To-day all this is changed. We
know that there are traitors in our midst,
who are ready to take any oath, and whom no
oath can bind. We know now that oursecret
enemies Once commanded our fleets and ar
mies—were in 6 charge of our arsenals, minis
tered at our altars, taught in our universities,
swarmed in our public offices, sat in Congress,
and bowed and fawned in the presence of an
almost imbecile executive, to whom most, if
not all of our troubles can be traced, as the
corrupt means . used to achieve a more corrupt
purpose. Instead of starvation ministering at
our altars, mobs made infuriated by famine
traversing our streets and avenues, and-idle
ness and dissipation_ marking the conduct of
the people of the north,,peace, .prosperity and
plenty reign throughout all our communities.
The only sorrow we feel is for the absence of
our brava , brethren who have marched to
throttle and to crush traitors. The only em
barrassment we experience is. that _created by
tho departure of those whom we love, respect
and honor. if this is any enconragement to
the people of the south, they are welcome
to its joys. But when they console them
with the belief that we are starving—that we
are demoralized by idleness, and are tra
versing the streets in drunken or infuriated
mobs, they bow to a hallucination as fatal
as that which is luring their own communities
into the withered embraces of anarchy and
desolation. The fields in the north that are
'not whitened with the tents of our armies,
wave with , the golden fruits of the ripening
harvests. The altars and hearths that have
been left for -awhile, by our sons and bro
thers, are surrounded by those whose voices
will be heaid by the God of Battles—whose
prayers are neither for vengeance or for vio
lence, but for a victory that will restore peace
-the north, the south, the east and the west,
making the Union what lt was, the emblem of
a power both incorruptible and invincible.
And all this will be accomplished, while such
secession sheets as the Baltimore Sun are en
gaged in vilifying and misrepresenting the
interests and the inhabitants of the free
PRINTERS, ATTENTION ! —There is an allusion
in the speech of G

of the Secretary' of War, he. old theL_company
that while the sentiment was being read, he
could not realize that the compliment was
'couched for him, because just then he was gaz
ing at his venerable friend, Col. Seaton, one of
the proprietors of.the National Intelligencer, who,
only a few years since, paid him his wages as a
journeyman printer. We want our young fel

ment, and study the progress of this distin.

of his " typo" days, and whojs still as famil
iar with good "spacing" and regular " justifica

"thousands." Only , a few years ago, Simon
Cameron set type and measured his matter in
the old Intelligencer office... Only a few years ago,

history of this government, • To-day he is at
the head of a Department upon which rests the
responsibility of rescuing that nation from 're
bellion—marshaling armies for the.field instead
of measuring matter for a newspaper. There is
a sublime lesson in such triumphs, which others
besides printer boys can learn. It tells us that

The object of this measure is to prevent the

THE BATTLE AT BGONEIFILLE.
JEFFERSON err; June 21
The steamer Sunshine, from Booneville,
reached here last evening, with forces from
that place. The official statement of the num
ber killed in the battle of Booneville is not re
ceived, but the lose of the State troops is not
over twenty. Of the Federal force, two were
killed, nine wounded, and one missing.
The State troops numbered over two thou
sand, and it is said that their loss Is about fif
teen hundred stand of arms,
and a considerable
quantity of ammunition, stores and a number
of horses and mules.
Gen. Price resigned and went home previous
to the battle. Gov. Jackson is supposed to
have gone to Arkansas.
It is thought that the rebels will make an
other stand at or near Lexington, under com
mand of Col. Weightman, formerly of the
United States army.
ANOTHER STATEMENT CORRECTED
anerron, June 21.
It now appears, from good authority, that
the reported possession of the town of Piedmont
by the rebels is false. After burning the
bridge, and cutting the telegraph wires, they
retreated into the country, but it is said that a
large force is still in the neighborhood. The
guard at the bridge made their escape. Rumors of
an attack on Philippi are rife, but no advance
has yet been made ; no reinforcements of Fed
eral troops have reached here yet.
