PEOPLES' STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE
A meeting of the members of the Peoples
State Central Committee will be held at Coy
erly's Hotel, Harrisburg, on
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22d, 1862,
to determine the time and place for holding a
State Convention to nominate State candidates,
and to transact such other business as may be
presented. A full attendance is requested.

ductions from the pen of a correspondent sign
ing himself "E. G.
We cannot comply with the request of "C.
T. 5.," simply because the publication of such
communications as. the one he has sent us,
would lead to trouble which he could not share,
while it Could not possibly effect a reform.
We publish to-day, the call of the Chairman
of the State Central Committee, to convene that
committee on the 27th day of January next, for
the purpose of fixing a time and place to hold
a convention by which state candidates are to
be nominated and such other business trans
acted as may be laid before that body. The
importance of the movement cannot be too
highly estimated, and we therefore trust that
the objects of the committee may be entirely
successful, while they thus patriotically tend to
the success of our organization and our princi
plias. The Peoples, or Republican party, has a
mission to fulfill which can only be achieved by
organization on the distinetive principles it has
ever proclaimed, of making the Constitution
the supreme law of the land, of sustaining that
law as authority superior to all other decrees
by man, and of sustaining it either by argu
ment, or the forcc of arms whenever it is a . aught
to be violated or annulled. As an initiation of
this achievement, we trust that every member
of this committee will meet for consultation izt
January next, and harmoniously join in devis
ing such means as will promote the consolida
tion of the people in one grand organization
for the success of our great and glorious princi
A Cumous FACT is coming to be understood in
rebeldom with regard to those in that region who
have always underated the valor of the northern
people. These men, it is now discovered, stand
aloof from the '•fighting part" of this struggle,
content to leave that business to the "niggers
and the mud-sills." The fact is creating some
excitement and dissatisfaction amorg those who
have taken up arms, and the confederate rulers,
to appease this feeling, have ordered a draft ex
pressly to reach those who thus stand aloof from
the rebel army. The idea is a good one, simply
because these very men who have been for years
depreciating the courage of the people of the
north, originated the spirit which incited the
slave-drivers to rebel. When they are compel
ed to meet our brave soldiers we can begin to
entertain hopes of a termination of the con
flict. One encounter with such brawlers will
convince them that northern men are not cow
ards, and when this conviction has fairly enter
ed their heads they will not soon again be
ready to raise their hands against the Union !
THE CANADIAN FRONTIER.—The Detroit Ad
vertiaer states that a rumor, based upon what is
considered reliable, authority, is prevalent
among the inhabitants of Windsor and Sand
wich, that the military commission, now mak
ing the tour of the Province, will shortly arrivf2
at those places, and put them, as well as Mal
den, in a complete state of defense. It is also
stated that the Government steamers will pro
ceed from Quebec and winter on the lakes, to b.
wady for emergencies.
AID AND COMFORT.
Every resolution offered in Congress defining
the object of this war to be for Constitutional
purposes, is so much aid and comfort to cont •
mon traitors and the enemies of Constitutional
law and order. Every speech made by calf a
member of the Senate or House of Representa
tives, arguing the legality of any policy in the
Suppression of this rebellion, is tantamount to
an admission that the governthent is not en
tirely right in its efforts to vindicate the law,
and that the judgment of the administration is
not altogether clear with regard to the justice
of an armed force to aid in crushing out civil
War, destroying the rebellion, and thus avert
ing social confusion and political anarchy.—
Those who indulge in these speeches are not
friends of the American Union, simply because
such efforts are apologies in disguise for treason,
and will eventually lead the world to infer that
a people who doubt their own capacity and dis
cuss the policy of preserving their government
only by such means as its own enemies may
suggest, are incapable of self- government, and
unworthy a position among the nations of the
world. Why should we hesitate at any means
to preserve our nationality ? Why should we
pause before any work that will promote the
success of free institutions, when they are made
an issue with rebellion? Those who offer rea
sons to justify such a course, will be ready at
the propitious moment to offer service to the
rebel chiefs. They will be willing to take up
the musket in defense of rebellion when their
arguments fail any longer as apologies for its
excesses, or pleas against its absolute extermina
The course adopted in this particular, by cer
tain gentlemen in Congress, in constantly urg
ing that this war is to preserve the Union and
defend the Constitution, should be deprecated
by every loyal man in both the Senate and
House of Representatives. We do not admit
that the Union is dissolved. •We deny that the
Constitution has been violated except by those
who are in rebellion,: and therefore this war is
to punish traitors and if possible remove the
cause of treason. The' idea of restoring a ErniCaa,
once effectually destroyed, by the force of arms,
is simply ridiculous, and. therefore this war is
not for restoration but preservation. It is to
rid the land of rebellion by any means and at
any cost. It is to exterminate a race of traitors
who have been conspiring against liberty, from
f'sther to son, since the Declaration of Indepen
dence was signed and sealed. The rebellion has
but one purpose and object, one end and aim.
It had its origin in slavery, and it now struggles
to make slavery predominant in this govern
ment. Therefore to declare that we are not
fighting the pretensions of slavery is to 'admit
that we are doing nothing to crush rebellion.
A BANKRUPT LAW
The proposition to petition Congress to pass a
general bankrupt law as the only efficient
means of relief in the present condition of trade
and credit, is being widely agitated, and most
ThriglPr l i i m: v gri P ts t le hv ea4e nv air f ran b i b ila oII e h©
influence of a universal bankrupt system, are
too fresh in the minds of the people to win. their
favor or support of a repetition of such legisla
tion, and therefore when Congress decides on
legislating thus for the relief of husiness men,
it is earnestly hoped that some plan or system
will be devised by which the rights and interests
of honest creditors will be rigidly guarded
against the machinations and deSigns of dis
honest debtors. The great danger in all bank
rupt laws is confined to their practical adminis
tration, by which debts are sought only to be
extinguished and not liquidated. The merchants. of
our loyal cities have. this matter in hand, and
will bring it before Congress:in such a shape, it
is said, as cannot fail to meet the concurrence
of the Senate and House of . Representatives.
One of the propositions made accords with the
law of 1841 in providing for volnnteering and
involuntary bankruiltcy, and in being retrospec
tive as well as prospective in its operations. It
differs essentially, however, in many respectF,
particularly in those which relate to the safe
keeping of the bankrupt's estate, and to the
action of creditors in superintending the pro
ceedings for winding it up in their various
The creditors, being the real parties in inter
est, should have the responsibility arid the right
of choosing the assignee who is to collect and
distribute the property of the debtor.; the pro
posed law gives them this right in all cases,
and also provides, in analogy with the French
code, for the closing up of the estate at the op
tion of three fourths in value of the creditors,
by trustees, under the inspection of a commit
tee, in lieu of the more formal proceedings in
bankruptcy. The creditors who prove their
claims share pro rata in the distribution, and the
debtor is entitled to an absolute discharge, ex
cept as to debts involving a breach of trust, up
on the surrender of all his property, and com
plying with the provisions of the law.
A special Committee of the House of Rrepre
sentatiies has the matter in charge. The,
country will await its action with considerable
anxiety, as by its report and bill on the subject
depend the harmony and confidence between
creditor and debtor, producer and consumer:
TIES LOUISVILLE JounweL, since Mr. Prentice
has returned, is as rampant as ever. It gives
evident tokens that it will rule or ruin. But if
it cannot have its own way in the Union, it will
join the rebels. Its course is in keeping with
that of the other hypocrites who are now in the
rebel army, and who remained in. Congress on
an assumed loyalty, until the force at Manassas
was safely intrenched, when they threw off
their disguise and at once joined their friends
the rebels and their idol slavery. We care not
whether it is George D. Prentice or John C.
Breckenridge, when.the country is involved in
a war with the minions of slavery, these men
are bound to uphold the slave power in the end,
whatever their professions may be at the, begin
ning of the struggle, and the longer this gov
ernment delays making theissne practical and
prompt in this contest, the sooner will be our

slavery have prepared for , the defenders of

Mr. STEVENS, (Pa.,) from the committee of
Ways and Means, reported a bill making appro

Referred to the Committee of the Whole on
the State of the Union.
The House resumed the consideration of the
bill providing for the construction of twenty
iron clad steam gun-boats to be built by con
tract or otherwise as the Secretary of the Navy
may deem best for the public interests.
Mr. VALLANDIGHAM, (0.,) offered and advoca

boats shall be constructed at the public navy
yard as far as practicable, or by private contract
after giving ten day's notice for proposals, to be

THE PRESIDENT'S first levee of the season was
held at the White House on TirolOday night. At
the hour of eight, when the doors were thrown
open, there was an immense crowd, which soon
filled the rooms. The Marine Band struck up,
and for two hours the ore d surged backward
and forward. The President stood the shaking
process very well. Among the guests were
General McClellan and wife, and so great was
the rush to see him that it was with much dill
culty that he could get through the rooms. He
only remained long enough to get in and out.
He wore a very plain uniform, with small
shoulder straps, and three stars upon them.—
A very large number of Senators and members,
and officers of the army and navy, were there,
but very few ladies. During the evening not
less than two thousand people attended. But
few of the foreign Ministers were present,though
they generally attend through the winter.—
Neither the French nor Britbh Ministers were
present, although Baron Stoeckel, of Russia,
and half a dozen of minor importance were
there with -their families. Secretary Cameron
and his daughter, Secretary Wells and lady,
Secretary Chase and daughter, and all the Cab
inet Ministers were present.
Accorarrs from Gen. Bank's column state that
shots are continually exchanged between the
enemy and Col. Leonarn's men. Reports as to
the enemy's numbers add intentions are contra
dictory and unreliable. One statement is that
Jackson with his brigade largely reinforced, is
at Falling Waters, but other intelligence does
pot appear to corroborate it. It is evident that
Gen. Kelly's advance from Romney towards
Winchester, and the approaching opening of
the road from Cumberland to Hancock, togeth
er with recent movements of Gen. Banks col
umn has caused great consternation on the oth
er side. Gen. Kelley has daily skirmishes with
the Confederate advance guards, but he progres
ses steadily and slowly towards Winchester. If
it be true that the Strasburg and Winchester
Railway connection has been completed, the
enemy will undoubtedly receive heavy reinforce

considerable magnitude be the result.
