TEM UNION-THE, coNsurtlTlON—mir
Friday Afternoon, August 2, 1801,.
Hon. Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, ar
rived in Harrisburg to-day, from the federal
Capital, and immediately proceeded to his coun
try seat of Locheil. We are not able to announce
how long our distinguished fellow citizen will
remain among his old friends and neighbors,
but it will be gratifying for them to learn that
he is in excellent health and spirits, notwith
standing the immense duties and onerous la
bors of his official position.
The story in regard to the disbursement of
paper money to tho Pennsylvania volunteers,
originated in the fact that the first payment
made to the troops was in accordance with a
system in the regular army, namely, placing
the sum necessary to pay an entire company in
the hands of the captain, by whom it was dis
bursed to the individual soldier under his com
mand. This sys em was adopted by one of the
first regular paymasters who arrived in this
city, but he disbursed only silver and gold,
while the officers in command are responsible
for the paper money payments made to the
volunteers, which was stopped as soon as it
came to the knowledge of those in authority.
We referred to this matter the other day, stating
that J. D. Cameron, Esq , had been instrumen
tal in st tipping the circulation of paper currency
among the troops, but the impression was left
that the paper was disbursed directly by the
paymaster. Such was not the fact, as he had
given the officers gold arid silver.
WHILE CONGRESS is discussing the constitu.
tonality of its own acts and proceeding, so far
as they relate to the rebellion, the rebels are
proclaiming every where that they consider
themselves absolved from all the obligations
imposed heretofore upon them by the Constitu
tion. They deny that its injunctions have any
force. They protest against its power, and de
clare that all its provisions are null atd void so
far as they are concerned. And yet members of
Congress insist that these same men shall be
protected by that Constitution—that in proceed
ing t) their subjugation or punishment, the
spirit and intention of the Constitution must
be carefully guarded, and its protection guar
anteed to those who seek its destruction.
While it is the policy of those in command
of the aim,' to protect publio and private pro
perty in the rebel states, and to treat humanly
and considerately those of the rebels who are
taken prisoners by the federal forces, the con
duct of the rebels themselves has invariably
been that of savage barbarity towards those of
the federal army who become their prisoners of
war. Our soldiers are compelled to labor with
their slaves—our officers are cast into prison, and
made to horde with common thieves and cut
throats—while those who enter the lines of
treason on errands of mercy to the suffering sol
dier of freedom, or on missions of humanity to
reclaim the bodies of our dead, are seized as
spies and intruders, the wretch who conducted
them thither released, because he was known
to sympathise with treason, while the gentle
men themselves are retained as hostages.
—We do not desire to add eurselres to the
list of newspapers that assume to advise the
government, but we dare ask whether the gov
ernment deems such a policy of forbearance as
Is suggested by their treatment of the rebel
leaders calculated to satisfy and appease the
demands and the indignation of the American
THE RICHMOND PAPERS contain exaggerated
and ridiculous tales of the Bull Run battle.
The Enquirer says that General Wilson, of Mass
achusetts, gave a grand dinner on the field of
battle, and only escaped during the retreat by
assuming the disguise of a teamster. Beaure
gard's chief surgeon reports a loss to the rebel
forces of more than three hundred killed and
over one thousand wounded. The Hagerstown
(Md ) Torch . Light, huwever, says a gentleman of
that town had received a letter from a female
relative at Winchester, in which the confederate
loss is put down at three thousand killed and
six thousand wounded.
As THE CASE NOW STANDS, if the southern con•
federacy was to be "let alone" to-morrow, and
granted all the territory included within the
boundaries of the fifteen slave states, a war
within themselves would be at once begun to
establish their own unity. No better definition
of the term "secession" could be given, as sig
nificant of what it has already done, than that
it means war; and every new occurrence con
nected with its onward march proves the fact.
Gesznar. McCaw, just appointed Brigadier
General, will be promoted Major General. He
will then ask that the whole fit teen regiments
of Pennsylvania reserve volunteers be ordered
to Washington and placed in his division.
now in Washington city, was furnished with
new and improved weapons on Wednesday last.
The men of the regiment are reported to be in
excellent health and spirits.
COL LANDERS says that he would rather fight
another battle with the troops who fell back at
Bull Run than with the new levies. He values
the experience of one such battle highly.
The rebel government has been very busy
and also very urgent in their appeals to the
cotton planters to donate such quantities of
their productions as they can spare, as a contri
bution to assist in defraying the expenses of
the rebellion. They argue that the rebellion is
to promote the interests of the institution of
slavery, and through its success, the facilities
for raising cotton are also to be increased. The
rebellion' is for slavery—slavery is for the wel
fare of the cotton lords—and cotton, therefore,
must be made its influence and means of suc
cess. if the confederate traitors can induce the
planters in the Atlantic and Gulf states to con
tribute one half of their cotton crops, they are
sanguine of being able to. raise a large amount
of mouey in Europe with this stock as collateral
security. This being accomplished, the next
achievment must be the breaking down of the
blockade, a feat that the governments of Eu
rope are expected to perform, in answer to the
demands of the rebel debtors. The cotton
to pay debts will be represented by the traitors
as being in their warehouses, but the blockade
of their ports by a foreign foe prevents its ship
ment for the purpose of satisfying their credi
tors. This is of course a very shrewd style of
diplomatic engineering, by which the southern
rebellion is to be sustained by the manufactur
ing interests of England and France, but the
test is yet to be made, whether they will be
able to defraud the planters to the extent they
contemplate, and even when they have sue
succeeded in such a fraud, whether they can
induce European capitalists to advance money
on so uncertain a security. The rebels never
hoped to succeed by a fair fight. They never
dreamed of bringing their rebellion to a success
ful close by their own struggles. It is by tricks
such as these that they hope to accomplish the
destruction of the American Union, and the con
sequent overthrow of the general principles of
civil and religious liberty. If they can embroil any
of the powers of Europe in the fight, their in
tention is to shirk the responsibility they have
assumed, escape the danger of the wax_ nod
leave the contest entirely to the federal gov
ernment and any such of the European powers
they may be able to embroil in the war.
In this connection there is another point,
which the people or the traitors of the south
have never fully considered. The shipping in
terest in Europe does not depend on cotton
freight. for prosperity, that trade b r ing confined
entirely to. the American merchant marine.
France or England have, neither of them the
tonnage afloat to engage in the cat rying of cotton;
their ships are devoted to other and more profita
ble business, so that if the blockade were forced,
the cotton would still remain to rot in south
ern warehouses, owing to a lack of ships to carry
it abroad. lieretoforethat business has been
monopolized by the shippers of the north, so
that even now the traitors are dependant on
the men with whom they are at war to carry
their cotton to a foreign market, for the purpose
of affording them means of sustenance and re
lief. E-re is a great obstacle for the rebellion
to overcome. Where are the rebels to obtain
ships to carry their cotton to Europe? Let
them break the blockade. Their ports of en
try are virtually abolished, and we, the legiti
mate power in this government, can defy a
foreign ship to enter a single southern port for
trade or freight.
It is to be proven whether all these plans
will succeed. The great dependence which the
south has placed on the cotton will fail them
when most they desire to rely on its power.
There are other interests in England and France
than those growing out of a connection with
the production of cotton—and even if they were
not, the governments of the old world are not
so anxious to recognize a bandebf rebels as legi
timate to rule any people. Time will prove
how futile are these as well as are all the calCu
lation of the rebels.
GEN. PATTERSON WES serenaded by his person
al friends in the oity of Philadelphia on Wednes
day night last. We have no objection to the
exuberance or music of those who choose to
honor a man whom the army and the country
suspect of a gross violation of , duty, but we
think it was unfortunate for Gen. Patterson
and his friends that Benjamin H. Brewster
should have been selected to indulge in the
fulsome laudation of a welcome speech, as it
rather increases the suspicion that has attached
to the General, of his sympathy and regard for
the traitors in the south. Brewster has always
been the counsel of all the slaVe-catchers that
have ever disgraced a free city with their hunt
after human beings, carrying his zeal in such
instances to the length of often performing such
service without asking or receiving a fee, such
being his regard and devotion to the institution
of slavery. Perhaps his reception of Patterson
was arranged outside of Philadelphia, by those
who are presurned to have been benefitted by his
strange strategy while in the enemy's country.
Stranger things than this are daily' occurring
in connection with the rebellion.
Ten Barna or Bum. Rua exposed one of the
most despicable tricks of which cowards could
possibly be guilty. The rebel regiments were
supplied with the flag of the Union—the im
mortal stars aid stripes—which they raised
whenever they found themselves about to be
arrayed in fair fight with any of the federal
forces. In this manner several loyal regiments
were deceived, and when completely thrown off
their guard by the vile cheat, were fired into by
the rebels, who hoisted their own black banner
of treason the moment they were safe from as-
Sault. This is chivalry as illustrated and prac
ticed by traitors.
IT is PROPOSED that hereafter when any of the
idlers who hang around the portals of power in
Washington, seek passes to give them oppor
tunities to witness a battle, the Commander-in-
Chief shall order all such to be armed and
placed in the front ranks of the first division of
the army whose dw y it may become to storm a
masked battery or carry by the point of the
bayonet any of the enemy's largest parks of
artillery. By this means, the tourists, Senators
and Representatives in Congress, with the lhou
sands of other ea-official" and' present lackeys of
the government, who glory in beholding, will
be afforded the additional satisfaction of partici.

Whatever may now be said of tbe movements
of the American people to suppress rebellion
and punish treason, the future historian of our
own times, will either be compelled to applaud
the discrimination which is made between trea
son in high and low places, or he will condemn
the partiality and neglect of the government
that permits itself to be assailed in its own
council chambers, by those who are daily en
gaged in giving aid and comfort to the common
enemies of human freedom, and who are the
only open, official and contending advocates of
human slavery in the world. The history of
no government that ever struggled for self-pre
servation, presented a spectacle such-,as ours
presents in its attitudes towards its enemies.—
On the one hand we are marshaling armies at
the most stupenduous expenditure of money—
blockading or abolishing ports of entry—sus
pending the postal system—closing sub-trea
suries, investing with armies_the people of cer
tain districts, and yet in the face of all these
stern facts of war, we permit our enemies to be
represented in the highest branches of our le
gislature. Who will not admit that this is
singular and inconsistent conduct, when com
pared with our other practices? Who will not
doubt the policy of permitting such traitors as
John C. Breckenridge to retain seats in the Se
nate, while they are openly engaged in denounc
ing the policy of the government. If it is wise
and judicious and patriotic to do so, it is equally
the reverse in every particular to arm and equip
thousands of men to fight for the suppression of
rebellion. If the policy of recognizing one
traitor is corrrect, the practice of taking all by
the hand should at once be adopted, because
we know of nothing in justice or common reason
which give to the criminal deceit and delibera
tion of John C. Breckenridge, any more merit in
the eyes of the American people than the apos
tasy and treason, murder and larceny of Jeff.
Davis possess in the estimation of the same
class of men. He is the open defender of the
rebels,. whenever Congress attempts to pass a
law for the suppression of the rebellion. He
has a vote and a voice in the transaction of the
confidential business of the government, and is
as likely to divulge what would be of benefit to
the enemy as he is ardent and willing to defend
that'enemy. We are to be pitied by all the
governments of the world, as long as such men
are tolerated in the business of our own gov
This rebellion will never be suppressed until
the legitimate government of the Union learns
to appreciate its own power and dignity, and is
able to e-tima e the fraud and extent of the
treason with which it is contending. The idea
of discussing Constitutional perogatives and
law with traitors is simply ridiculous. It is
equally preposterous to suffer treason to be re
pr&ented in our legislature. But of this the
body in which it is pl sin it exists, must he the
judge, while the people have a right to judge
the sincerity of that same body, however great
its power and renowned its purity,-when it per
mits the boldest declarations of treason to be
made in its own presence. Breckinridge him
self scorns the men who tolerate him in his
present conduct. He tells th mso every day
in his spur ches. He tells the colt itry that their
legislature is a fraud, the laws they make un
constitutional, and their efforts to sur press re
bellion nothing mire or less than the attacks
of usurpers and tyrants on a peoj le 'struggling
to-be free. And yet he is tolerated. We blush
for the dignity and fiitune:s of the American
When the rebellion fists t up to govern in
the south, its influence spread like a prairie
conflagration. The press was muzzled, and
editors incarcerated in prison who dared to
write or print a word calculated to cast :tistrust
or disrespect on the cause of secession. The
pulpit was silenced, and preachers publicly de
nounced and scourged who presumed to make
the sanctity of religion the means of proclaim
ing the truth, if that proclamation of truth
militated against the bloody deed and bloodier
designs of treason.. Every sentiment, every in
terest, every hope, and all the strength and re
sources of a people naturally enthusiastic, were
forced into the service of the rebellion, without
a word of complaint or a murmur of resistance,
simply because madneis then ruled the hour,
and those whose calmer judgment was against
the monstrous purposes of the rebel leaders,
were prevented from exercising either the liber
ty of speech, or the right of opposing that which
they conscientiously regarded as a political, so
cial and religious imposition and wrong. Dur
ing the progress of the rebellion, however, its
developement has exposed its real designs, and
left room, no longer, to doubt that the more - it
is pemisted in the greater the wrong and the
larger the augmentation of the evil that is to
follow. :and this conviction is not only enter
tained silently by t he massesthe mouth who
have so long been prevented from expressing
themselves by the mob. It is shared and pro
claimed by the press that formerly were ardent
ly engaged in urging forward the movement
they now deplore. They do not hesitate to ex
press the truth that the rebellion cannot be
sustained—that the government will eventually
succeed—and that the very meu who lead in
the treason are themselves incapable of 'direct
ing the storm they have aroused.
The New Orleans Delta, in some lato'numbers,
is by no means chary of its contempt for the
motives and. conduct of the rebel leaders. It
"We have incontrovertibly shown that the
men who have managed to get the Conetry into the
war, have proved themselves incapable of carry
ing it safely and honorably through; and that, su
far, all which has been done has sprung from
the zeal, enthusiasm and generous liberality of
the people, while much of the burden, and the
performance, too, have been mainly assumed
and borne by those who were'unconvinced of
the propriety or wisdom of what has been done,"
If a Republican formulist had made such
an announcem nt, the dough-face sympathis
ing Breckinridge organs of the north would
have pronounced the statement a falsehood,
and maintained that the people of the south
were united in the present unholy struggle.
But as it comes from a journal that has hereto
fore advocated the right of secession, and which
has since discovered its wrung, we present it, to
the people of the north as the evidence of a
healthy re-action iu the south, that will do as
much to suppress rebellion as can be accom
plished by the thousands who are now armed
for the same purpose.
