Monday Afternoon, December 30,1861.
In publishing the report of the commissioners
to visit and examine the condition of our troops
in Kentucky, the name of one of the gentlemen
on the commission was misprinted. It was
printed Beltzhower when it should have been
published as Mr. W. Bzurznoovra. The gen
tleman in question is well known as having been
connected with the commission, but we now
only make this explanation to preserve the
truthfulness of our own record, it being pre
sumed that the intelligent reader would make
his own correction.
OUR FOREIGN RELATIONS.
The loyal people of the loyal states had ample
time on the holy Sabbath day carefully to pon
der the peculiar relations which now mark our
intercourse with foreign nations, while those
who have any knowledge of the diplomatic cor-
respondence between this and foreign govern
ments, for the past sixty years, will have a
subject in the change in that correspondence for
careful reflection for years to come. We feel
to-day as if our government had taken the most
important step yet attempted since our birth as
a nation. We feel that we are either pausing
in our progress, or that we have received a fatal
blow, notwithstanding there is reason in the
argument, that not to have surrendered Mason
and Slidell, would have been receding from a
Long and persistent claim of every administra
tion from the days of Jefferson down, that the
deck of a vessel was the soil of the country, and
that the right of search was as monstrous as
the claims of invasion or transit over neutral
territory for aggressive purposes. ThiS govern
ment has long denied the right of search, but
the search which was thus denied, did not cover
cases of flagrant escapes for purposes as venal
and traitorous as those implied in the escape of
Slidell and Mason, from the blockaded ports of
rebellion, and their subsequent refuge on board
a foreign mail steamer. The seizure of Mason
and Slidell was not searching the Trent. It was
known positively that they were aboard that
vessel—gib known_too that the British Oneen
had proclaimed a solemn determinatiou ,
serve a neutrality, and therefore acting on this
proclamation as sacred, the arrest of Mason and
Slidell by our naval officers should have been ta
kenby the British government as the application
of their own doctrine of the right to search for and
seizure of escaped culprits, such as traitors, and
the vindication of a neutrality which British
subjects seemed determined to violate. This
should, this would have been its policy and action,
had that government been less impressed with
the error that the Administration was unable
to resist British arrogance and the American
people not in a condition to meet the hirelings
of England in a contest fig the principles invol-
ved. It is on these grounds that we must view
the course and the conduct of the British gov-
ernment, on the subject of the surrender of the
arch traitors, Mason and Slidell. That the de
mand of England was prompted by a desire to
humiliate this government, there can now be,
no question, and that it was forced for the pur
pose of provoking a war, there is even less
doubt. On this account the British govern
ment will be equally disappointed by the sur
render of Mason and Slidell as are the American
'people. The aristocracy of England long for
the 'entire destruction of Republican institutions
on this hemisphere. They feel that in such
close proximity to a nation of freemen, they are
not safe in their priviliges, and therefore,
whether it be on the Mason and Slidell arrest,
or the revival of the boundary question, be
tween the two governments, England is deter
mined, if possible, to strike a fatal blow at this
government, while it is now engaged in a
mighty struggle to maintain its own authority
Within its own territory.
While as a . diplomatic question the case in
the Trent difficulty has been ab'y managed by
the Administration, the affair will create a sen
sation in circles in to which the observation of
Cabinets seldom penetrates. The people will feel
'it as a disgrace, deeply, terribly and eternally.
• It settles forever the feeling between the mass
es of the North and the aristocracy of Eng
land, and whether we are permitted to go on as
a free government, or are to be utterly demol
ished in our institutions and laws by the corn-I
bined efforts of the Queens and Emperors of the
world, the hate of Americans for an English
man henceforth becomes as implacable as death
and as fierce as hell. Mothers will teach their
children to hate England—fathers will rear
their boys to hate England—and from a social
excellence to a religious virtue, this hate will
grow and increase, until the evil day in the his
tory of the British Government will be the one
on which it took advantage of the domestic'
trouble in these states, to heap insult and shame
and degredation on American justice, American
integrity and American independence. Hereaf
ter we become the natural allies of the ene
mies of England, ready at any moment to as
sist in any proceeding which will humiliate
• English aristocracy and destroy British authori
In this manner, we can alone treat the sur
render of Mason and Slidell. Under all the
circumstances it was the beat the Administra
tion could do to dispose of the affair—but re
viewed under the most favorable auspices, whe
ther it saves us from a present war with the
British government, or whether the British
ministry seek another pretext to provoke a
quarrel, the humiliation of the surrender will
never be forgotten by the American people.
THE REAL. CAUSE.
When the slave-holders rebellion first devel
oped itself in the repudiation of the federal au
thority, the assertion was indulged, that the
people of the south desired to escape the t j ran
ny of the federal government, which threaten
ed, as they declared, to entail their rights,
jeopard their interests, destroy their social
equilibrium, and utterly neutralize their influ
ence in the Union of American States. To es
cape these monstrous evils, it was claimed that
the people of the south were compelled to
revolutionise—actually forced to cut loose from
all association with other states of this Union,
or be absorbed and eventually ruined in all
their political relations. These positions were
first taken by the rebels, to neutralise that por
tion of the people of the free states, who had
always acted in political alliance with the slave
holding politicians of the south, while they were
also maintained to postpone any decisive action
on the part of the federal power to crush the
rebellion and bring the leading rebels to con
dign punishment. During this delay, and while
the men in the loyal states were struggling to
counteract the influence thus created by the
hypocracy of treason, the traitors themselves
were busy in perfecting their plans, and now
we have a full knowledge of their real
designs. That terrible knowledge does not
startle us as much as it should cover
with shanfe those in the north'who have per
sisted in opposing every vigorous effort to bring
this rebellion to a final close. It does not do
so, because we have always been impressed with
the fact that the rebellion in the south was
nothing more than a movement of the aristocra
cy of that region in sympathy with the aristo
cracy of Europe, and now we have the verifica
tion of that fact in the information derived from
the real intention of the mission of Slidell and
Mason to Europe. Those commissioners of trea
son and rebellion were instructed to offer the
absolute submission and vassalage of the people
of the south to either England or France,.in lieu
of the protection of those governments to be ex
tended to that of the government of rebellion.
That a mean and insignificant aristocracy might
reign in the south, that a desperate and bloody
slave oligarchy might set itself up as a nation,
ten millions of people—TEN MILLIONS OF FREE WHITE
MEN WERE TO BE CONSIGNED TO THE VASSALAGE
WHIOH HOLDS THE MASSES OF ENGLAND AND FRANCE
IN ABJECT BONDS AND SLAVISH OBEDIENCE TO A
These facts give a new and startling construe-
tion to the rebellion, and the question is at once
suggested—what is to beeome of the free while
men of the loyal states should ,the rebellion succeed
Wilt the rebel leaders be satisfied with their own suc
cess, or will they join the tyrants of the world in com
pletely destroying all the free states, and bringing their
free masses under the yoke of one or the other of the
despotisms of Europe ? These are questions whfch
cannot now be passed either in silence or indif
ference. They concern every white man in the
free states, and it is to,k z fer baimicnni. l ‘2loxvoy
while we are hesitating to give liberty to others
, whose services would be of incalculable value
in suppressing this rebellion. It is to be seen
how much longer we will continue to chaffer
and contend for the Constitutional rights of the
south, when inevitable ruin and oppression
await us while thus delaying the overthrow of
rebellion. If we wait much longer, the aristo
cracy of the south will be in alliance with all
the aristocracies in, the world, so that before we
have crushed rebellion we will be compelled to
battle against invasion. Let those who have
so long been opposing the earliest and safest
policy in crushing this rebellion now contem
plate the dangers in which their delays have in
volved us, and no longer seek the embarrass
, meat of the govenuftent. And let that govern
ment, if it desires immortality , and future sta
bility among the nations of the world, no longer
I hesitate in wielding the power within its pos
session for its own preservation. The battle of
liberty must be fought now or never. It must.
be inaugurated by destroying . the power of ,
slave treason in the south, when we will be
ready to engage our foreign enemies in the de
fence of God and our country.
THE ORGANIZATION OF TEE LEGIS-
This subject has been engaging the attention
of a certain class of men in Pennsylvania, whose
solicitude.is entirely, founded on a desire to suc
ceed in controlling the organization of the
House for strictly party purposes. These men
forget that the power they seek is the same by
which the country has been brought to its pre
sent terrible confusion and animosity = the
same which administers oaths to traitors and
holds men in an antagonism to the peaciand
perpetuity of this government. The party
which they claim to represent has done more to
encourage rebellion than any other influence
outside of the rebel states, and the motives
which prompt them now to seek power are ani:
mated solely by a desire to serve the same pur
poses. If they had a majority in the legislature,
we might-excuse their persistent declarations of
being able to control that body, but the fact of
their being in the minority is so notorious, that
the unblushing affrontery of their present con
duct is only equalled by their past corruption,
audacity and desperation.
The Republicans and the Union. men elected
to sustain the state and federal administrations
are clearly in the majority in the House, and un-
less men who have been elected on this plain'
issue of sustaining these two administrations,
utterly forget the obligation of a pledge in a
desire to serve their past party predelictions,
either an independent Union man or Republican
will be made speaker of the House. The people
expect this result. Any other will arouse their
indignation against those who bring it about,
and therefore the men who suffer themselves
to be made a party to any bargain by which
the organization of the House will be placed
under the control of doubtful partizan influ
ence, will be completely and irretrievably po
litically damned in Pennsylvania.
—But we have too much confidence in the
integrity and patriotism of the men elected on
Uniott principles, to believe now, that they
can be seduced from their moral obligations to
their constituents and the cause of the Union,
by any promise of future political preferment
from a party that has a mere doubtful present
existence. 'What is necessary is firmness told de-
cision on the part of the reliable Union Repub
licans in the House, and the plans which are
now being concocted to betray the interests of
the commonwealth and prostitute the power
of the legislature, may be happily frustrated.

EDITOR TELEGICAPII :—Allow me to present
to the notice and consideration of the approach
ing People's State Convention, the name of the
Hon. Francis Jordon, of Bedford, as a candidate
for Auditor General. Mr. Jordon has few
equals for business capacity in our State, and
his superior legal attainments with incorrupti
ble integrity, renders his name especially suita
be in these war times when 50 many efforts are
.being made to bleed the public treasury. His
nomination will be the harbinger of success.
An overwhelming mass of testimony estab
lishes the fact that the slaves in the neighbor
hood of Port Royal, who have refused to ac
company their masters in their flight to the in
teylor,havebeenshet down without mercy and
tarily left behind by their masters, excePt - thie
matter of system, dictated from the rebel head-
quartets, we quote the following from the
Charleston Afercury :
"If it can be shown that any good under the
sun can collie of the intercourse of the Yankees
with the slaves, we would agree that they
should be left with the Yankees. Supposing
that they are neither carded off, nor used in
any way against us, will they not be demoral
ized by Yankee intercourse? We published a
few' days ago, the letter of the Secretary of
War of the
,United States, Mr. Cameron, to
Gen. Sherman,. as to the course he should pur
sne in this expedition with our slaves. The
order spoke as follows
"'You will, in general, avail yourself of the
services of any persons, whether fugitives from
labor or not, who may offer themselves to" the'
National Government ; you will employ such'
persons in such service as they may be fitted',
for, either' as ordinary employees, or, if special.
circumstances require it, in any other capacity,.
with such organization of squads, companies, or
as you deem most beneficial to the
service. This, however, does not mean a gene
ral arming of them for military service. You,
will assure all loyal masters that Congress
provide just compensation to them for the loss
I of the per Song so employed.'
I " Now, we do not wish to analyze the above.
words. Let our readers each for himself, weigh',
their significancy. If they do not lead him, if
he can,' to take his slaves beyond the control of
the Yankees, no argument can influence him,:
Burn your cotton and provisions rather than let
our enemies have them. Carry away your
slaves, and treat those who voluntarily remain,'
against our authority, as our enemies. This is
our only policy.
We learn froin an intelligent citizen of this
place, who a few days since was some distance
Out in the country, that he heard various per
Sons, to whom the oath of allegiance has re-
Cently been administered by Federal authority,
declare that they tookit under duress, and hence
did not consider it binding.
This is the language of Rebels everywhere,
and we have often wondered why the practice
of administering the oath has not been a.ban-:
Boned, and something that they will respect
substituted. We think they would consider
powder and ball binding, though the obligation
I might be administered to them under duress,
and suggest this as the sine qua non for the
Jackson and Price mania which hasled so many
of our fellow-citizens from their allegiance to
the Government under whose fostering care
they have grown to the proportions of • wealth
and intelligence. We regret that the mild and
reasonable measures hitherto employed by the
Government have failed, and that, in their
stead, the most stringent means must be em
ployed. Let the responsibility fall upon the
guilty.—Weston (Mo.) Mail.
Ths EVACUATION OM GALvEarox.--The intelli
gence of the evacuation of Galveston by the
confederates, though entirely unexpected, may
be regarded as entirely reliable, since it comes
to us from the enemy.
The city is situated on an island, and defend
ed, we believe, by a stone fort, and protected
only by open sand-bag batteries, whose incom
petency to cope with a brisk mortar fire from a
fleet was clearly demonstrated at Port Royal.
The Confederates have no -doubt retired to
the main land, .leaving Galveston, the chief
port and most important city in Texas, to be
occupied by our troops. This adds another
most valuable position to the chain of posts now
girding the Southern coast. The loss of it can
not fail to be discouraging to Texans.
HEAVY ORDNANCE ORDERED.—On Tuesday an
order went from the Ordnance Department to
the three largest cannon founderies in the
country—the Fort Pitt in Pittsburg, and Alger's
in Boston—to manufacture, to their utmost
capacity,. 10-inch columbiads for the next
twelve months. Their present make would in
that time yield eighteen hundred guns. Con
tracts for immense quantities of small ordnance,

Mr. POTTER, (Wis.,) reported the following
resolution, which was adopted :
Resolved, That the Secretary of the Treasury
be requested to furnish without unnecessary de
lay to the select committee, instructions to in
quire into the alleged disloyalty of the Gov
ernment employees, the information asked for
by the letter of -the 3rd instant, addressed by
the chairman of the committee to the Secretary
of the Treasury.
Mr. Parma also reported a resolution calling
on the Secretary of the Interior to similarly re
spond. He said it was necessary that the select
committee should have this information in or
der to make their report.
Mr. Vhcirtirms, (Ky.,) not caring to vote
blindly on this question, inquired what was the
character of the information called for.
Mr_ Parrsa explained that in July last
the heads of the departments were request
ed to furnish lists of their respective clerks,
which they did, and the last re
quest which the Secretaries of the Treas
ury and Interior have not . complied with,
was to furnish the Committee with the name
of such clerks mentioned in their that
communication, who have since been
removed, designating such by °name. It
was necessary for the com.nittee to have the
information in order to ascertain whether the
Departments have removed those who have
been reported to them as disloyal, so far as
the committee could learn this fact from the
evidence before them.
If such persons have not been removed, the
Departments, by this call, would have an op
portunity to furnish the reasons.
Mr. Wicktirrs said he did not feel himself
called upon to defend the departments named,
but he did not understand how far this House
has the right to assume the executive power of
this Government. If he understood the merits
of the pending question, it was an inquiry why
the heads of departments had not removed cer

Mr. MALLORY (Ky.) objected to the introduc
tion of the resolution calling on the Secretary
of the Interior for information.
Mr. POTTER said the remarks of the gentleman
from Kentucky (Wicliffe) would be proper if
the question were on the appointment
of the committee, but the committee has
already been appointed, and the very object of
sending to the Departments the testimony of-1
feeling the disloyalty of the clerks was to afford
an opportunity for vindication. The committee
have not decided on any matter. They have
merely taken testimony and submitted it to the
heads of the Departments for their consideration
and action. He would inform the gentlemen
from Kentucky that 'there were to-day in
the employment of the Government five hun
dred clerks who are disloyal to the Dnion. There
are also men in the Departments who have
never uttered a word of sympathy for the Gov
ernment, notwithstanding the perils which
surrounded it. The Departments have not in
this respect performed their duty. In a great
many cases where clerks have been charged with
disloyalty, parties have came before the com
mittee and called on God to witness that they
were loyal . men, while others 'brought letters
from Senators and Members•of 'the House, de
claring them to be loyal men. 'ln many instan
ces, the persons so certified to as 'loyal men,
have left their district, and are now to be found
in the ranks of the enemy.
Every man employed should have the oppor
tunity to give evidence of his loyalty.and this
was the object of the committee. •
The resolution being objected to was not re-
ceived for consideration.
Mr. STEVENS (Pa.,) from the Committee of
Ways and Means reported a bill repealing cer
tain laws creating ports of entry, the consid
eration of which was postponed till the second
Tuesday. of. February, after Mr. -Stevens '
had briefly expressed his views,, saying
among other... things. that the blockade
was a great. , admission of the lieu•
trality of those whose ports are block
aded, and that it was not a correct princi
ple for a nation to blockade its own ports.
Incidentally alluding to the Trent affair, be said
that the conduct 'of France was impertinent, as
she was not invited to interfere, in the affair,
but when we settle our domestic troubles,
look into the holy alliance of those powers and
see how far they shall be permitted to control
our conduct. .
