THE UNION--THE CONS±TrurION-AND
THE ENFOEQEMENT OF THE LAW. •
Monday Afternoon, June 94,1861.
Davfn R. RANDALL is an independent,candi
date for Congress in the Twelfth Congressional
District. Re , is an able man, and would, if
elected:m*o a reliable representative.
TO cue of John Merryman, now confined at
Fort Meifenry, will soon come up before the
U. District Court, as we see by a paragraph
in the Toluontovi, (Md.,) Advocate, that the
Natty U. 8. Marshal has been surun2onlog
witnesses in the county to , appear before the
. ACCRA/STA from portions of western Virginia
1101te that the secessionists are still impressing
men into their service, compelling all persons
blintz' sixteen and sixty to take up arms. A
number of citizens who had returned home in
amsequence of the temporary presence of Fed
eral troops'are already compelled to retire.
nanilinvAnla has not only sent' her own

bailor upon the states of their adoption, but

their:birth; the glorious old Keystone. Asiong
those who have lately passed through this city,en
route for the federal capital, was Irvin W. Potter,
formerly of Centre county; Pennsylvania, but
now of Ashkosh, Wis. Mr. Potter is the orderly
sergeant of Company E, second regiment Wis

Washington. Ells friends in Centre county
will be pleased to hear that he is well, and i s
enlisted with all his enthusiasm and energy in
the war. Sergeant Potter is a lineal descend

renown, and has the metal in him to make a
Tea Szossarazurs or WASH:MON Cur are
said to have had tables set, covered with the
noblest meats and vegetables, on Saturday
last, the day fixed for the attack on that city,
in order that they could welcome the conquer
ing rebels to a feast. Would it , not be as well
for the President to erect a dozen gibbets on
the monument ground, immediately in front of
the White House, on which to hang these
same rebels as they were detected in their sym
pathy and aid for treason ? if the spirit of the
"Father of his Country" hovers over the capi
tal of that country, or still lingers among the
groves and glens of the Potomac, we can con
ceive of nothing that would be more cheering
and'pleasing to its view, es it mourns for the
fete of that country which Washington adored,
than the spectacle of a doxen different traitors
dangling in the air, suspended from those gib
bets every morning, from the present moment
until this rebellion is suppressed. Spring-traps

ings beet suited to quell or answer rebellion.
They will be found to exceed, in power and
potency, all the oaths of allegiance that could
be administered in a month.

VIE TERMS OF PEACE.
Congress will organise on tbe4th day of July,
next, for the purpose ofgranting such aid as it
may deem necessary tosnstaln the President in
his efforts to crush the rebellion that is now ar
rayed in armed force to destroy the govern
ment. The object of this meeting is plain and
simple—the manner and purpose of calling it
together perfectly legal, and therefore it has
become mingled with our other hopes and
prayers, that Congress will not enter on any
other legislation that may possibly bring dis
grace upon the country or strengthen the hands
of the traitors who are almost within the reach
of the stern grasp of justice. The position of
the government is controlled entirely by the
law, and those in authority have yet done noth-
bag in violation'of that law, notwithstanding
they are dealing with a lawless mob. Sur -
rottniled thus by men who deny. the authority
of the law, who have spurned its influence and
defy its officers, the goveinment is instructed
by It'Constittition which - defines its rights to
act, which controls its impulses of hasty at
tack, and fixes the bduifds Of its 'operations so
as to avoid all possible chance of doing injus
tice to the humblest citizen in the land. In
view of such influences and provisions to con
trol the Executive in his operations against the
rebels, Congress should do nothing more than
afford him the necessary supplies of men_ and
money, and then trust to the ability of _ the
government to sustain itself. If we have cre
ateda power for self-defence, and , lodged it in
an Executive officer, now le the time to test its
ability for the discharge of the purpose for
which RIMS created. If it answers its ends,
we will have reason to rejoice in the wisdom
of those'who devised such a power. if it should
not be able to cope properly with rebellion,
then let Congress still further extend its pow
ers. Any otipm action than this will midst as
materially to humble the majesty of the gov
ernment, as the oaths and affirmations of the
traitors themselves are calculated to detract
from that majestic authority, to humble it be
fore the nations of the world, if not utterly
expunge it from the history of civilisation.
The terms of peace that can be made, and
preserve the dignity of this government, need
no legislation for their enforcement. They are
prociaimedin the cop3men law of the land, and
clearly defined in every line of our written
Constitution. In those terms obedience to the
constitsde,dauthority,ls, the first and most es
sential conogssion, .while for the preservation
of that authority, and the extension of its in
fluence, those who violently refuse to render
such obedience make themselves amenable to
justice, and if j neticeis to be preserved inviolate,
they must bspunishaf. If we uttempt any other
mode of settlement, we recognize a principle
in our government which will forever render
it uncertain., If we commence to legislate for
the evils that have their remedy in our system
of government, we make precedents for, the
recognition of every riot as revolution, to be
calmly treated with, instead of indignantly
crashed out. . And what is of more consequence
than every other consideration, if we admit
the right of these rebels to treaty in order to
resume their places of obedience in thesister
hood of states, we make treason, instead of
legislation, the legitimate , manner of arriving
at grentoseforme. We change the order of le
gislation.entirely. Instead of making the law
conform to the Constitution, we deny the in
fluence and prerogative of the Constitution, if
we attempt to compromise its provisions at the
very moment when their healthy operations
would restore peace and security to the country.
Each terms of peace as the loyal people of
this nation demand from those who are now
in arms against the legally constituted authori
ties of the land, are unreserved and unquali
fled obedience to the laws. If Congress at
tempts to fix any other, it will transcend its
authority in an hour of great public exigency
and danger. If our embarrassments are at
tempted to be relieved by compromise, we only
postpone the trial of strength between law and
lawlessness, and give the traitors time to
strengthen their weak points, correct their
mistakes, and at the first propitious hour again
throw off their allegiance and again propose
the total extinction of the federal authority.
Look to Congress, then, and narrowly watch
its proceedings. If our representatives attempt
to' barter our will and purpose in a foolish at
tempt to compromise our difficulties, they 'are ,
as little deserving of our confidence as are
who have' already renounced their oaths of al
legiance and become open, lawless and deter-'
mined traitors. Let' the term 3 of peace 110 3 ;
obedience! •If obediences not yielded, .we have'
the force and the authority to demand and
compel its 'rendition, If we prostitute , that
force and authority in a hollow truce or a
shameless.compromige, we will become at once
the craven slaves which tt is,the boast of the
traitors to pronounce every man in the flee
Ocristilution and the Letitia of the Land I If we
permit the first to beeoine perverted and defiled,
we admit the other to contempt and violation.
Let this be our motto and terms of peace.
A REVOLVING CANNON:
In a late number of the &levies ttmirican we
find an elaborate description of a revolving
cannon, which is furnished with a metal door,
which actses•a barrier, protecting the , artille
list against the encmy!e riflemen. A peculiar;
and it would. seem *gable, feature in this
cannon is that the barrel consists not of a tube,i
but only the. bars constituting the rifling of the
cannon, keeping them in place by surrounding
them at proper Intervale with rings. These
bars, of course, will give the same direction to
the shot as if the barrel it ere closed, while the
air passes freely through, and therefore the
the barrel cannot get heated. By snrronnding
these bars with a removable tight-fitting etov-'
ering, it can be converted into a closed barrel
for the purpose,offiring ; while ventilation can
be secured In, a moment by its removal.

A third topic debated is the substitution of
pennovinania 1101ail1 telegraA, itiontrap Afternoon, .dune 24, 1861.
Mx for cottoa. On this the verdict of the
Scientific itnuriosn is in the negative :
If we cannot obtain cotton for our manufac
tures, of c arse we must have something else ;
but in the present state of the arts flax cannot
be produced as a cheap substitute for It. The
public should be made aware of this fact, so
that there may be no delusion on this impor
tant question. The fibre of cotton exists free
in the ball as It is picked from the plant, and
it only requires to be subjected to the simple
mechanical operation of ginning, to remove
the seed, when it is fit for the first operations
in the factory. Flax, on the other hand, re
quires to be rippled, or threshed, then rotted,
dried and clutched, involving several expensive
chemical and mechanical operations, extending
over a number of days, to put It into condition
obtained by the simple gin in' the case of cotton.
Flax grows like grass; it has a stalk 'with a pith
or woody heart, and the fiber forms the sheath.
This fiber is cemented with vegetable glue and
bitumen, which have to be decomposed by the
rotting process before the pith can be removed
and the-fibre set free. Improved processes may
be discovered to render•the preparation of flax
less expensive, but we cannot alter Its nature:;
its preparation will always be more expensive,
we think, than that of cotton. ' ' '•
