THE UNION-THE CONSITTUTION-AND
THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW.
Monday Morning, July 15,1861
TEE FIFTEEN REGIMENTS.
A rumor, originating in an irresponsible
source, having become current that the Fifteen
Regiments now organizing in Pennsylvania, as
a reserve corps,' would not be accepted by the
War DePaitinent, we are authorized in stating
that it is without foundation in truth. On the
contrary, the Secretary of War is anxious for
the immediate mustering into service of this
tome, a lies intimated such a desire to Gov.
Curtin. , In compliance with this intimation,
Col. John A. Wright has, been despatched to
Washington, where he is now engaged irk assist.
ing in the preparation necessary to the reception
of these regiments.
In this connection we deem it just and proper
to state that the organization of these regiments
has been entirely under the control and super
vision of Gen. 'McCall, who rests his reputation
as a soldier on their perfection and efficiency.
When once in service, the men composing the
fifteen different regiments will zealously and
gallantly uphold the honor of the state that has
sent them forward at the summons of the War
Department; to assist in maintaining the in
tegrity and perpetuity of the American lJnion*
THE HEALTH . OP GO V CURTIN:
Since the commencement of hostilities by the
southern, rebels against the federal government,
the labors of the Governor of Pennsylvania have
been of the most harrassing and responsible
character. He has labored with zeal and all
his might, in the organization of the quota of
military force demanded from the state, and
the public need not be surprised that under the
immense pressure of all this business, immeas
urably transcending in importance that involved
in any past administration of this state, that
the health and the strength of the Executive
should be severely tested. The physicians of
'Gov. Curtin have expressed to him the opinion
that he cannot retain his health and continue to
give the undivided attention to official business
that has so far marked his term, and therefore
they have decided that he must seek relaxation
and repose, or utterly sink with a shattered
constitution.. In obedience to this opinion, it
is the intention of the Governor to seek the
rest necessary, for a full regaining of his health,
and therefore his absence from the Executive
chamber will be accounted for during the com
ing week or thereafter for a limited period.
THE CENTRE COUNTY PRISONERS.
The captive of a number of volunteers from
Centre county and vicinity, by a marauding'
party of Virginia rebels, having given rise to
much conjeotion and speculation, the following
additional information from the Weal Cheater
Maga Record may be of importance and grati
ffcation to the friends of parties concerned :
Capture and .Recapture.—Gallant Act of Major
Given.--After Gen. Patterson's battle at Falling
Waters; 'a body of rebel troops were reported to
be trying to get into the rear of the Federal
army, and Negley's brigade was ordered
to take a diverging road, about two miles from
Falling Waters, to intercept them. A part of
compariy I was thrown out in advance, and
while waiting in a piece of woods for the brigade
to come , up, they saw a squadron of cavalry, ono
hundred or more, belonging to the enemy,
which the thOught were our own men, there
being no perceptible difference in uniform.
They Wee careless, and their Captain much to
blame; 'for, being entirely off their guard, so
much so as to lay their arms on the ground,
while some•of them actually let down the fence
for the earralry to pass over.
Our men did net discover their mistake until
the dastardvillain who commanded the troopers
shot down the man who let the fence down for
him ! This man is Bob Swan, a Marylander,
who murdered-Sprigg at Cumberland eight or
ten yeargago. He is a great scoundrel. Our
men were completely taken by surprise, and
!prang to their guns, while the cavalry dashed
in among them. Forty men were cut off from
their arms and made prisoners ; the rest of our
men discharged their muskets, and fell back
upon the main body, while the troops hurried
off their prisoners. Our men, however, emptied
threeteddlea and captured two horses. One of
the troopert,waa killed and left ; the others
were lifted in front of the riders and carried off.
This occurred quite early in the day, and they
brought their prisonere through Martinsburg in
advertise of• the. retreating rebel troops. Our
men were tied with their hands behind, in
couples. Some of the, citizens here gave them
food. Th ey were , greatly distressed by the
forced march they had made. When notice of
the capture reached. the - Federal camp, Major
Given aglicited and obtained permission to head
a parV.to rescue the prisoners. He made pur
suit & . d: fortunately came upon the retreating
party;" the prisoners and captured
eight Or ten of the rebels. Our townsman,
Jamaielly, gives a brief account of it in a
ifonklficarmix declared on the floor of the
House of Representatives, one day this week,
that thisalleto4l were waiting for traitors. This w ill

arms.ta suppiess 'rebellion, and who are so far
the superiord 'traiterathat they should scarce

than to capture and hang them. The gallows
should be the fixed and unalterable doom of
every traitor caught with arms in his hands.
The gallows should be the fate of every secret
sympathiser detected in giving aid and comfort
to the rebels—and thus making the gallows ou r

tors, completely obliterate thik crime by entirely
exterminating the criminals. The gallows
should'. be borne in the advance of every col

THE APOLOGISTS OF TREASON
In this morning's Patriot and Union there is a
paragraph calling attention to an article from
the New York World, which fairly exposes the
disunion tendencies of the New York Tribune.
The Patriot seems to be hugely gratified with
this expose, and suffers itself to show this grat
ification in the paragraph alluded to, but in the
same column its editors indulge in the very
spirit they applaud the World for condemning
in the Tribune. In a labored article, so far as
its arguments are concerned, but spontaneous
in its approvals, the Patriot endorses the con
duct of the traitor Vallarligham, and asserts
that his treason was only a defence of the lib.
erty of speech. It goes even further than this,
by characterizing the virtuous indignation of
our gallant soldiers, who repulsed the traitor
Vallandigham from the encampments near
Washington city, as brutal and outrageous conduct.
We submit to the candid men of this commu
nity, the men who daily read the Patriot and
Union, whether that sheet, its editors,and abet
tors, are not as guilty of treason, as guilty of
open hostility to the peace and prosperity of
this nation as guarded and represented by a
Republican administration, as is Jeff . Davishim
self. No opportunity is missed to exhibit this
treason in words, and cowardice only prevents
the same parties from practicing in deeds that
in which they indulge by hopes and prayers.
We submit to the people of the capital of Penn
sylvania whether the Patriot has not from the
beginning of this contest for the 'Union, given
its sympathy to the rebels by embarrassing and
denouncing the action of the government, by
misrepresenting the military policy of the ad
ministration, and by coolly and artfully ridi
culing the common soldier as a brute or an as
sassin. The article in this morning's issue
proves all that we assert, without referring to
an article in yesterday's issue of the same sheet,
in which the editors indulge in a peculiar and
cowardly attack on the
.President, making a
feigned criticism on the, syntax and prosody of
the message the pretext of again proving an
antagonism to a government which protects it
in its treasonable loving liberty of speech.
In the case of Vallandigham, the traitor re
presentative from Ohio, the whole Union has
pronounced judgment against him, save the
sympathisers with the 13reckinridge school of
traitors, who persist, like the' Patriot, in en
dorsing his conduct . . Vallandigham is one of
the men whom the Patriot defends and repre
sents, and who declare that this war is unright
eous, unjust and unmanly. They assert that
the government has no right to take up arms
for the purpose of its own preservation—that
the law can be vindicated without a resort to
arms—that armed rebellion should be soothed
and allayed by the sweet compromises peculiar
to the diplomacy of the Democratic party, and
that wherever the armies of the government
march, they are guilty of invasion, and where
ever they strike a blow at treason, they are
equally guilty of aggression, This is the con
stant cry of such sympathisers with treason as
the Patriot. They do not urge, as a means of
peace, that the rebels should lay down their
arms, that they should return the property they
have stolen from the legitimate government,
and give up their leaders to justice. Such a
orePeaition would involve the Democratic party:
in ruin, and criminate all of its southern
leaders, if it did not at the same time implicate
by confession those who have the odor of the
Patriot sanctum on their persons.
The mere written or printed word of the
Patriot and Union for or against this contest for
law and order is of no importance in this com
munity. They can do no harm by an eternity of
utterance in favor of treason. But the danger
is in the disgrace to the capital of Pennsylvania
which such a sheet creates abroad, and against
this we protest. We protest, because the Pa
triot does not represent the sentiment of this
community, as was shown when the indigna
tion of our honest citizens only recently almost
burst against them in violence, and when they
were only saved from the castigation of the
masses by an appeal for the protection of the
authorities. It would seem now that they are
invoking fresh indignation by an indulgence in
Vallandingloun's freedom of speech—a freedom
that levels epithet at the justice of the defence
of the Union, the valor of our soldiers, the
patriotism of Our 'niers, and the loyalty of the
masses. God koows that such traitors are
presuming on the patience ofthe people. When
it becomes necessary for the law to take hold
of them, it can only be expounded from the
steps of the gallows. ,
Ls Haanxis's Teams we notice the omission
of one chapter which is of the most essential
importance to the officer in command as well as
the soldier in the ranks. No man can become
a really good soldier, unless he first accomplish
himself as a gentleman, by which we mean,
that he must regard and respect the feelings of
others as in all respects equal to his own.
Hardee says nothing on this subject, and there
fore, doubtless; the aspirant for military honors
who is elevated from social life, perhaps taken
from behind a counter, where he wielded the
yard-stick,pr more probably dug out of the
musty records of a lawyer's office, imagines
that the lust qualification of an officer in com
mand is the assumption of an overbearing and
tyranical demeanor towards these whom he
deems his inferiors. If this is the prerogative
of a military officer, may heaven save us
from his controL But this is not all. More
than . one young man, whose upper lip
is scarcely shaded with the down of
eighteen summers, has only to have a
gilded strap on his shoulders and a
jaunty blue cap with a gold band, set
forward on his nose, to make him the most ter
rible young man, in his own imagination, that
is seen on promenade, to ogle the ladies and
frown on hapless dry goods clerks who vainly
envy such their epaulets and gold bands. We
submit to the reader whetter such is not too
much the case with the young officers in both
the army and navy. No man of the most lim
ited observation will deny this fact ; and before
the evil increases, and danger as well as demor
alisation originate from the exhibition of such
petty pride, tyranny and real ignorance, the
preirgliould remind these gentlemen that they
are in reality only`the servants of the people,
educated, fed Aral clothed.atthepublic elcomse,
not to Play tbar braggart, the tyrant or the'

bully, but to fight the battles of the republic.
The positions which most of the young men of
the class to which we refer now occupy, were
not all won in honorable competition or strug
gle for the good of the country. They were
bestowed as patronage, in the face of the fact
that a dozen other men as good as themselves
were applicants for the same places, and that
their loss would affect only the circle which
their anxious and accomplished mammas so
Sensible men are never inflated with eleva
tion. This is the fact particularly with men
who profess and have a martial disposition, so
that those who act otherwise must not blame old
fashioned civil': ns like ourselves if we set them
down as up-starts, disgracing alike the uniform
they wear and the country that furnished them
with money to pay the tailor for its making.
Neither are we prepared to submit to the des
potism of a military rule in the government,
the streets or the society we are daily compelled
to enter in the pursuit of our legitimate busi
ness. We therefore suggest, for the benefit of
the young men who are just. now appearing for
the first time in the glory of goldhands, epau
letts and steel, that a chapter on civility and
I courteous breeding be inserted in the next edi
tion of Hardee. It will save the general public
from annoyance, and shield the army and navy
from the most silly and.iridiculous . as Well as
THE CREDIT OF THE NATION.
When the administration resolved to 'rescue
the country from rebellion, the croakers and
traitors of the Breckinridge school, of which
the Patriot and Union is the organ in this locali
ty, raised the cry that the business and moneyed
men of the nation were opposed to the war—
that the masses would not sustain it—that men
would not enlist, because it was Lincoln's war
—and that the credit of the government was so
far destroyed by the war policy, as to prevent the
possibility of raising sufficient money to main
tain a brigade. These were the arguments used
to cripple the administration. As these failed;
and men and money were devoted to the gov
ernment in unprecedented numbers and amounts,
the men who urged a want of confidence in the
war, threw off their masks, and exhibited them
selves as bold and undisguised traitors. If this
is not the case, this community is mistaken in
its readings of the Patriot and Union.
On the subject of the credit of the nation,
the Nattonal Intelligences has never seen any
thing which has so strikingly displayed public
confidence in the Government and its financial
administration, in the great struggle for which
it is embarked for the Union and Constitution,
as the promptness with which the sum of five
million dollars was advanced to the Secretary
of the Treasury in New York on Tuesday last,
in response to a call for that sum—on such
liberal terms, too, in the face of the great loan
of two hundred and fifty millions about to be
authorized by Congress.
It was after business hours on Monday, the
Bth inst., that Secretary Chase sent the follow
ing telegraphic dispatch to the Assistant Treas
urer at New York :
TanAguas Dweltrum, July 8, 1861.
John J. Cisco, New York, will issue six per
cent, Treasury notes, at sixty days, to amount
of ;me million dot mi for five millions in coin.
Please make arrangements forthwith.
The dispatch was received the following morn_
ing, and Mr. Qisco immediately called a meet
ing of the leading bank officers and started a
subscription, and before the close'of business
hours of the same day the following dispatches
were sent to the Secretary, and reached Wash
ington before he had left the department for
Naar YORE, July 9, 1881.
1b Eon. S. P. Chase, Secretary of the 21 , easurer :
Iv have obtained the subscription for the en
tire amount of five millions. Over three mil
lioos have already been paid in.
JOHN J. Cisco,
NEW Yoits, July 9, 1861.
S. P. Chase, Secretary of the Treasury:
The five millions are secured.
Jona A. Simvams,
President of the Bank of Commerce.
We doubt whether the history of the depart
ment shows an instance of similar dispatch in
negotiations, and we takeit, from this display
of confidence, that the moneyed men of the
loyal states, do not, like Vallandigham and his
apologist the Patriot and Union, regard this con
test for law and order, as unholy and unjust.
WHAT WOULD TIM MEN OP THB PAST no, were
it possible for them to return to a stage of action
which they once enobled with their deeds and
their presence ? What would Washington, Jef
ferson, Franklin, Hamilton and Adams do,
were they summoned from the tomb,, and asked
to participate in the struggle which is raging
for and against the United Staten R Eighty-five
years since these men were in the midst of their
struggle for the creation of the very Union
which one portion of the American people are
now eagerly clamoring to destroy, while another
is as strenuously battling for its maintenance.
Through heat and cold—in the face of well
disciplined troops aniwith scarcely any credit—
with a wild and unexplored territory on their
northern, western and southern borders, filled
with a savage foe ready to take up anus against
them in their struggle for independence, 'for
civil liberty and religious right—with danger
and death before them wherever their march
was directed, the fathers and patriots and sol
diers of the revolution never hesitatedfor a mo
ment in the work in which they had engaged—
never shrank from the responsibility they had
assumed, or quieted before the foe whose an
ger they had invoked by declaring themselves
endowed with the inalienable rights of life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness. From
the quiet plains of Lexington to Bunker
Hill, our fathers nobly battled for these rights.
They struggled on to Trenton, to Brandy
wine, braving the piercing cold of Valley
Forge, the heat and disease of Yorktown
and Cowpens --- all this that they might be
free, and transmit to their children a
heritage of freedom, such as would-pass un
impaired from generation to generation until
freedom became eternal and immortal on this
hemisphere. What would these men say,
what could they do, were 'they once more
among the scenes made glorious by their own
combats? We leave thOSe to, answer who are

would say were it possible for him once more
to return to the shores of the Potomac and
there behold the army of traitors, entrenched
and sworn in bitter hostility to a land and a
Union which he devoted the best years of his
life in rescuing from tyranny and perpetuating
in harmony. Those who are contending for the
permanency of the Union have nothing to do
with the respOnsibility that struggle involves—
they have nothing to do with answering the
questions as to what would be the course of
the fathers of the revolution were they again
in our midst, either the spectators of our strife
or the participants in our broils. That the men
of the past would condemn the efforts to des
