man who neglects •to advertise; is Constantly
defi,iorhig tholuirdn'ess of the times, he . who;
follows the practice of liberal and ilio4ous, ad

ERIE AS A NAVAL DEPOT.
Whether England concludes to take part in
this' rebellion or resolves to " wait a little
longer" for a more propitious hour to gratify
the long cherished hopes of her aristocracy, of
destroying the great Republic of the West, the
necessity of protecting our entire range of
northern border along liritiskterritory, is now
and ever will be, one of vast importance. There
can hereafter be no social reciprocity or commer•
cial understanding between Great Britain and
this government, simply because the English ar
istocracy who govern, have evinced a hatred . for
the free masses of this-land, such as we did not
anticipate fiom the ,pionears of Constitutional
liberty Andlniletiehfthhee facts, the necessity
of erecting: naval 400 a Upon the 'lake shores
and militarY fortifications along the north-east
and western Clanadian - bolusiary, is daily becom
ing a work of imperative and instant importance.
We have no 40, hereafter, to , trust either the
Carnelian rebels or the English aristocracy.
TIM &rarer, when they 46ml:tad their sickly
rosolirtien a few' years since;' were too willing to
seek refuge. under our gOvannrient until they
ccitdd obtain pardon from their own, :when they
returned to Canada and became the 'bitterest
revilers of he Yankee—while the English arts=
'tocracy have ever been 'the secret, foes of that
system which in this government eh:yeti:a'
every Vat to the position-of a sovereign.
'ln view of these facts, hi : Al : they are historical,
the necessity: of proketitig our bonier. along
English territory is` - very , important. One of
the most important features of this protection'
will consist of fleets to be maintained on the
lakes, sitchas will be able : to oope with. the
English w a r craft which - we must sooner or later
expect to encounter in thoSe waters. And when
this neer — Natty, Is admitted, a, still greater neces
sity arises of at once establishing a naval depot
on the lakes; in such a's:antral Position as will
be a . protectinn both against the rough weather
in that region, andafford, facilities of early oom.-
ruunication with the greatmanufactnring marts
and market:o'd Supply along the Atlantic sea
board. Such a locality. is presented by Erie.
Ii every respect, the city and harbor of. Erie,
is the meet' dettrable, as affording a bay both
deep and spacious, for a Beet to ride at anchor ;
with, brinke 100 feet high, on which batteries;
rauld be erected to prevent the entrance of a
iwstile fleet; 'the supply of ship timber in that
region, and 'along the lines of railroad leading to
that, point is inexhapstible ; with 'every facility
for obtaining coal and iron for manufacturing
phrposes, combine to render the harbor of Erie
the most desirable for a - naval - depot'of all the
other harbors on our lakes:
We give this subject our most earnest recom,
mendation, and trust that no time will. be -lost
on the part of the Navy Department in at once
selecting this poiiit for the purpose named.—
Stich tt selection is demanded both by economy
and the highest considefations of national de
fence arid prettervationr.
RESIGNATION AND APPOINTMEN TS
Gen; Williara EU: Kelm, for two years • the
Surveyor General of the State, has been appoint •

Brigadier-General in the may, • -Gen. Heim,
during his connection with the Surveyor Gen

many persemd friends, by his naforrn courtesy
and diligence i and elicited the commendation
of the pdople at the •initiation of our national
embarrassments, by, promptly volunteering his
services in defence of the, nee:Ma honor, law
and authority. His appointment, to. the corn
'mend of a brigade was therefore well merited ,
and we have no doubt that the responsibility
thus imposed will be faikhfidly . discharge&
. In view of this appointment of. Gen. , Keim,
his resignation as Surveyor General becomes 're

selected a successor in„Ae Land pepartinent, in

I The services of this gentleman, in a military

Commonwealth of .Peruutylvania rests for these
Services, at a tinii*hen Capt. Tan Swortow re
tires from all connection with the camps in this
region. No man labored more_zealously to en

no man's energy is more credit due for the

Keystone state. have received, than to - Captain
Van SWartow. demoves Well at the hands

an omen of victory.
THE OILDINANCOO of accession was pained on the
20th day of December, 1800, and less than . a
year has , seen the, footsteps of the invader on the
Boil of South Carolina—the commerce of her
porta destroyed—her trope given to the flames—
her slaves escaping -her, material` wealth re
duced to almost nothing—beggary and near
starvation taekbig her people—and finally her
chief city laid in ashes without even the 'hand
of the "northern enemy" being laid upon her.
Verily, the nest in which was hatched the viper
of secession, has fared and all who• may be
hereafter disposed,to adopt-the policy of "rule
or ruin" may -take warning.- Some- way the
destruction reaches them, 'and how it reaches
them is a matter of but little cotaidquence. ,
