GENERAL PATTERSON' S ORDERS.
The conduct of Gen. Patterson has already
been referred to in the TELEGRAPH, and we have
frankly declared our-disapproval of the course
by which, it seems to us, he assisted in producing
the disasters which overtook the struggles of
our army at Bull Run. Since then the country
has been divided on the subject, with the force
of public opinion against Gen. Patterson. If
he is innocent he should demand a Court of
Inquiry. This he can do, while, being now
out of service, he could not demand and receive
a trial by a Court Martial. If he is innocent,
-he must prove himself such, because his con
duct only has given rise to the dreadful suspi
cions which now attach to himself. In regard
to his orders the fact has been well-established
that he was to attack Johnson, if strong enough;
if not to cut him a from Beauregard, to worry
him at any rate, and, if out generaled, to re
inforce Gen. McDowell. How signally he
failed to obey these orders is known to all
The New York Times, in one of its desFatches
from Washington last w eek, referred to this
matter as follows :
The official dispatches to Gen. Patterson will
show that the entire blame for the defeat of our
forces at Bull Run is due entirely to his neglect
of positive orders. He was directed—first, to
engage and defeat Johnson ; second, if unable
to engage Johnson, to get between him and
Manassas, and prevent a junction of his forces
with Beauregard's ; third, if unable to fulfill
either of these orders, he was to harrass John
son in front, and keep him before Winchester ;
fourth, if he could do neither of these things,
then he was to make all haste to Washington,
and join McDowell, as son as Johnson could
join Beauregard. It will be seen that Gen.
Patterson disregarded each of these orders, and
that, had he obeyed either, he would have pre
vented the disaster at Bull Run, and at once
have utterly destroyed the rebellion, or remov
ed the seat of war beyond the confines of
—When Gen. Patterson or his friends are able
and do refute such statements as these, we will
give them the benefit of the refutation, but un
til this is done, the General is bound to be re
garded as having neglected to do his duty, and
thus drenched the first great battlefield for the
Union with the blood of Union men.
DEATH OF BISHOP BOWMAN.
A painful rumor was current in this city, and
which has since been corroborated, that Rev.
Samuel Bowman, one of the Bishops of the
Episcopal Church, bad died very suddenly in
the northwestern part of the state, where he
was traveling and visiting the parishes of his
diocese. We have not been able to ascertain
the cause of his sudden death, which of itself
has cast a gloom over the people. of the state
capital, where the Bishop was both esteemed
and beloved for his Christian virtues, personal
accomplishments and professional dignity and
learning. For more than a quarter of a cen
tury, we believe, he was the rector of St. James'
Episcopal Church, in the city of Lancaster,
where he had gathered around him a congre
gation unsurpassed in extent, devotion and
learning, by any other parish of its dimensions
in the country, and as an evidence of the
strength of devotion between the Bishop and
his old congregation, they would not give up
his pastoral care, even while the pressing duties
of his Bishopric called him to a wider field and
more enlarged duties.
Bishop Bowman was an eminent scholar, a
learned divine, and a Christian man of most
exemplary character and unblemished reputa
tion. He was the friend of the poor, the coun
sellor of the rich, the admonisher of the erring,
and the prayerful sympathiser with the repent
ant. From a position of lofty responsibility
and distinguished eminence, he regarded the
humblest man in the church as his equal while
he would acknowledge no superiority or
exclusiveness in the circles of a Christian broth
erhood, save that which was achieved by a test
of faith, or a practice of good works and holy
precepts. In the death of Bishop Bowman, the
Episcopal church has lost a representative whose
labors had distinguished its already world-wide
reputation, and added to religion at least the
glory of the sincerity and the success of one
man's devotion to religion.
'firs laEumercr who plumes himself in the
Patriot this morning, by attempting to take the
TELEGRAPH to task for stating information de
rived from his superiors, must be bending be
neath the weight of his epaulettes, or he is just
recovering from a bender produced by potations
of lager, and if both these suspicions are un
founded, he is one of those myths which so
often take posession of the brains of the editors
of the Patriot, to• trouble their slumbers and
mislead their readers. When this Lieutenant
learns that important information is not given
to officers of his grade, he will cease to be as
tonished at a great many items he reads. How
ever, we congratulate the public on the evidence
of enterprise as displayed by the Lieutenant and
the Patriot in the production and publication of
the communication referred to in this para
graph. It was prodigeous !
CoNauss, by joint resolution of both Houses
will adjourn to-morrow.
SERMON ON TUE STATE OF THE UNION.
In response to an invitation given in the
columns of the TELEGRAPH, St. Stephen's Epis
copal Church was filled with a respectable au
dience last evening, to listen to a "Sermon on
the state of the Union," preached by Rev. Mr.
Leacock. Among those present we noticed
many of our most prominent citizens, with
members of all congregations, who doubtless as
sembled with a patriotic as well as a Christian
desire to hear a word spoken in defence of our
bleeding and distracted country. If they were
not mistaken in the anticipation which was to
satisfy this desire, then are we mistaken intheir
devotion to their country, or the solicitude which
should fill the hearts of all true men for the success
of constitutional liberty in this the darkest hour
of its peril. The Reverend gentleman instead
of preaching a sermon on the state of the Union,
indulged in a tirade against the authorities of
the land, which was only preserved from being
coarse and vulgar by the place in which it was
pronounced, and the arrogance with which it
connected the speaker's prejudices with the
duties of men generally to their God and their
country. He denounced Gen. McDowell for
fighting on Sunday, neglecting to mention that
the fight was forced on the federal troops—that
it was made absolutely necessary—and even
going so far as to make our disaster on that oc
cation the pretext for a congratulation, in our
opinion, which either stamps the preacher as an
arrant traitor or a prejudiced knave. We are
bound to call things by their right names, when
our free institutions and our country are in dan
ger, and it is little difference to us whether
treason is fulminated from the pulpit or the
rostrum, whether it is concealed beneath cleri
cal robes or in the barrels of a revolver, because
we deem it our duty to denounce, to expose,
and to hold it up to the scorn, the contempt
and the suppression of the people when it en
dangers with its venom and its death blow, all
that we hold dear and honorable in our country
and our countrymen.
On the subject of our national difficulties,
Rev. Mr. Leacock had not a single word to
utter against the rebels. He did not mention
the names of any of those engaged in the rebel
lion—he did not say that it was waged to per
petuate slavery at the expense of civil and
religious liberty, but contented himself with
assailing Gen. Scott, that he has fought and
won so many victories on Sunday for his
country and his country's God, because
if there is a struggle which God does sanc
tion in the efforts of man, it is that , which is
made for liberty against slavery. Why did not
Mr. Rev. Leacock proclaim this truth? Why did
he not say to the free people of his parish and
the free citizens whom he had invited to bear
him, that the rebellion was urged to sustain
slavery ? We will answer, because he was born
in Cuba, raised and educated in the south, and
therefore imbued with prejudices in favor of the
horrible and monstrous crimes which now
make a hell of Cuba and devils of the Javefy
propaganda of the south. He did not declare
from his pulpit what he knew to be true, that
the leaders of the rebellion at the south were
practicing barbarisms not only in the prosecu
tion of this war, but in the treatment of our
prisoners. He did not say to his audience that
when a northern man entered the rebel lines on
an errand of mercy, he was seized and detained.
He did not tell his congregation that citizens of
Pennsylvania have been seized and carried off
by the rebel hordes who proWl along our bord
ers, that others are now the inmates of loath
some cells in Richmond—and that our national
reputation, our individual respectability and
personal good names as freemen are all assailed
by this rebellion. On these subjects, the rev
erend gentleman was perfectly silent, and seem
ed to think that by indulging in a tirade against
American journalism and that portion of the
American preachers who are loyal to the
American Union, he was serving his God and
his friends. If he was, he did not please our
God, the God of Liberty and Justice—the God
that has watched' the growth and progress of
this nation, and who will accompany it in its
struggles with the corruptions of both Cuba ar
istocracy and modern South American tyranny.
If the sermon of Rev. Leacock had been
preached by a chaplain in the Rebel Army, the
sentiments and its denunciations would have
been applauded as just and truthful. Those
who heard it, who are not themselves prejudiced
to some degree against the efforts now making
by our government to suppress this rebellion,
will admit that if like sentiments against the
rebels had been preached in a rebel city, the
preacher would have been arrested as a traitor,
and convicted of treason without ranch cere
mony or legal formality or difficulty. But here
in the free north, we can afford to listen to and
tolerate such displays of clerical inconsistency
and individual assault and prejudice. The merit
of our cause makes it invulnerable to the at
tacks of those who do not sympathise with our
struggles—but the measure of our patience has
a limit beyond which forbearance may cease to
be a virtue, those who test it most, will
some day most experience. ,
—While on this subject, a printed word in re
gard to the preachers of Harrisburg may not be
out of place. With this exception, they have
all manifested a devotion to the success of the
cause of their country commendable alike to
their patriotism. Every pulpit in the city has
been consecrated to the defence of eur nation
ality—every preacher seems to have been im
bued with grace and eloquence from God him
self, if we may judge:by the fervor of their ap
peals and the sincerity, of their solicitude for
their country both of their, adoption., and their
birth. Shrines and altars have ,been divested
of their differences in creeds—the Catholic and
the Methodist have joined hands—the stern
Presbyterian with his undaunted spirit and
frank avowals, stands shoulder to shoulder
with the equally indomitable Lutherian, each
forgetting hie sect in the simple thought of their
. country, and all raising their voices
with a holy and glorious unison to the God of
nations to bless with strengh and vigor those
who are struggling for our nationality, and
crown our banners with success in our efforts
against the propagandism and the defence of
slavery. To the prayers of %these reverend
gentlemen, we cnminend the .eyident tergiver
sationand mistakes of rev .. 4acqck, while we
trust that the patriotic 0 . 10 oTi.R.rwegotion
Pettnegthania Maitv elegrapt), filottbag lfttritcron, 2kaguot 5, 1861.
will not again invite the people of the capital
of Pennsylvania to listen to such another
attack on a country which we all profess to
love, and of whose reputation we arejealous even
to retaliation on those who are so audacious
as to assail it either through the pulpit, the
press or the rostrum.
AFRICAN SLAVERS IN AMERICAN
It is established by a report made to the last
Congress that the African slave trade was carried
on during the administration of Mr. Buchanan,
almost entirely in American vessels and under
the American flag. From the correspondence of
our Consuls in Cuban ports and on the African
coast, it appears that from 1856 to 1859 a con
siderable amount of southern capital was em
barked in this iniquitous traffic, and many of
the most successful vessels were owned in New
Orleans and Charleston. These were frequently
officered by southern men, chiefly South Caro
linians, who were thus, perhaps, preparing them;
selves to enter vigorously on a branch of com
merce which they hoped would be at once
opened to them when the destruction of the
Union was accomplished and the nations of
Europe had submitted themselves to the rule of
the mighty King Cotton. ' But if the most suc
cessful vessels in the trade were sent from south
ern ports, it is a humiliating fact that of the
African fleet many were fitted and owned in
New York and other of our nothern seaports.
It is known that this infamous business was
carried on at the north chiefly by foreigners, who
found in our busy harbors good opportunities
for concealment, and in the officers of Mr. Bu
chanan too often willing confederates. The
present administration proposes to break up this
business entirely ; and for this purpose great
care has been exercised in the selection of active
and experienced men for the post of United
States Marshal. Hitherto the Marshals of dif
ferent districts have acted separately ; but it is
intended that hereafter there shall be combined
and organized action between them. For this
purpose we learn that the Secretary of the In
terior, to whom the United States Marshals re
port, has determined to call together in New
York all those stationed on our seaboard, there
to adopt such measures as may enable them to
work in concert and make the knowledge of
each instantly and thoroughly available to all.
Thus we may hope at last to find our own
ports cleared of the disgrace, which has so long
been theirs, of harboring the greater part of the
African slave fleet. With this blow struck on
our shores, if Spain can be induced to take en
ergetic measures to prevent the landing of
slaves in Cuba, we might even look for a total
and speedy extinction of the traffic in human
The following is the apportionment of the
tax among all the States, to raise $20,000,000
for the purpose of carrying on the struggle to
suppress rebellion. It will be seen that the bill
includes all the States, as we stated some time
since, so that the burden is not to fall alone on
the loyal commonwealths, who are so nobly en
gaged in this contest :

OUR ARMY IN GOOD CONDITION
THE MEN ANXIOUS TO FIGHT.
Seamy HOOK, Md., Aug. 4
A noted Secessionist, a man of wealth and
standing, residing near Knoxville, was arrested,
but discharged for want of evidence. It was
ascertained yesterday, however, through an
escaped contraband, that through him or his
agency information was frequently transmitted
to the rebel army, regarding the strength of
our forces and their position. He wes accord
ingly re-arrested last night.
A gentleman connected with this divisionwas
at the Ford yesterday, thirty-two miles below
here, and reports that he witnessed there the
interesting spectacle of a Federal and rebel
picket meeting midway in the river. They ex
changed a Baltimore Sun for a Richmond En
quirer, and, after taking a friendly drink to
gether, exchanged canteens. The rebel picket
stated that there were but four regiments at
Leesburg, and these were raw militia undergo
ing drill and discipline. He also stated that
there were no large bodies of rebel trcops north
of that point or east of the Alleghenies. This,
however, is in part discredited.
Soma of the rebel scouts were seen about a
- mile and a half from Bolivar yesterday, and it
is reported that a mill belonging to a well
known Unionist was burnt by them, about six
miles above Harper's Ferry, on Thursday night.
Major Doubleday's rifled seige guns were suc
cessfully experimented recently in the presence
of General Banks and staff. Several shot and
shell were thrown into the valley opposite the
battery with astonishing accuracy.
PLAN OF THE REBELS IN THE WEST.
St. Louts, and not Cairo, the Point of
ST. Louis, Mo., August 3
The .Emneng News learns from a well-informed
citizen, of south-west Missouri, who possesses
peculiar facilities for acquiring knowledge, the
plan of the secessionists in that region. Their
real object is not to attack Cairo, or Bird's
Point, but to make a desperate attempt to se
eure possession of St. Louis. There is a strong
force under General Pillow at New Madrid, Mo.;
another at Pocahontas, Ark., under the com
mand, it is believed, of McCullough ; and an
other in Mississippi county, Missouri, under
Jeff. Thomson. The plan is to keep up a con
stant threat to attack Cairo and Bird's Point,
so as to employ the Federal troops at these
points, and to menace Gen. Lyon in the south
west by threats to attack him, while the forces
at New Madrid and Pocahontas effect a junction
at Pilot Knob, and from there march on St.
Louis and take it, reinstate Governor Jackson,
and, - with this city as the base of operations,
wrest Missouri from the Federal Government.

GRNTLEMEN : Your note of the 15th inst., has been re.
cleved, raying tkint you had heard that I load been bane.
Sled .by the use of Wood's Hair Restorative, and request
ing my certificate of the feat if I bad no abjection to
I award it to you cheerful l y, because I thick it due.—
Ify ego is about 50 years ; the color of my hair auburn.
and inclined to curl. tome five or six years since it be
gan to torn gray, and the scalp on the crown of my herd
to lose its sensibility and dandruffto form npon it. Each
of these disagreeabilities increased with time, and about
four !maths since a fourth was added to them, by hair
falling off the top of my head and threatening to make
me bald. ,
In this unpleasant predicament, I was 'reduced to try
Wood's Hair Restorative, mainly to arrest the falling
off of my hair, for I had really no expectation that gray
hair could ever be restored to its origami, color excel);
from dyes. I was, however, greatly surprised to find
after the use of two bottles only, that not only was the
falling oil arrested, but the color was restored to the gray
hairs and sensibility to the scalp, and dandruff ceased to
form on my head, very much to the gratification of my
wife, at whose solicitation was induced to try it.
For this, among the many obligations I owe to her sex,
I strongly recommend all husbands who v,elue the .d
-miration of their w.vrs to profit by my example, and
use t if growing gray or getting bald.
Very respectfully, BEN. A. LAVENDER.
