IRE DEFENSIVE POLICYOF THE REBELS
The rebellion of the slave holders of the
south, when they first raised their banners and
shouldered their arms, led the people of the
country to suppose that it was for the purpose
of wresting certain rights from the national
government of these states, of establishing
slavery immediately in all the territories by
force, bectuse the prevention of this establish
ment was one of the grievances complained of
by the rebels in their declaration of the causes
leading to their revolt. It seems now, how
ever, that the rebels did not arm for the pur
pose of fighting. They did not organize a large
army that they might, like men, demand proper
redress for certain grievances, but they have
entrenched their hosts in safe positions, that
they may succeed in wasting the resources of
the government, and wearing out the energies
of those who have battled in its support.. When
this is accomplished, the chivalry will be ready
and willing to meet the mud sills in battle on
equal terms. This policy is portrayed in the
last number of De Bow's Review, and which we
can safely regard as an official exposition of the
designs of the rebels. The writbr in the Review
Ihlls defines the rebel policy :
"The confederate states present greater ne
tna' obstacles to an invading army than any
. l area of country on the globe. Armies
,'cannot march down our Atlantic coast, because
of the great number of bays, inlets, creeks and
rivers ; nor down the interior, because of moun
tain ridges, impassable roads, spare popula
tion and scarcity of provisions.
"The Mississippi is narrow, long, tedious and
easily defended, and Its valley is subject to
ovvflow. No invading army will attempt a
se us invasion in that direction. It is our
,tine policy to decoy the enemy into the interior
End then cut them off, as were Braddock, and
Burgoyne, and Cornwallis, and Ross, and Pack
°ahem, and our awn troops in the everglades of
Florida. When we have defeated and captured
ittheir armies, exhausted their treasury, and
cowed their spirits by defensive warfare, it will
be time fur us to begin to act on the offensive,
and to invade their territory."
In reference to the invasion of Maryland,
which has been urged upon the confederate
government by leapptient spirits, the, Revile
"Should we be defeated in Malyland, our
whole army, with their ammunition, would be
captured by the enemy. We might in a short
time repair the loss of our men, but the loss of
our munition; of war would inflict upon us
stunning and appalling blow: One defeat in
Maryland would do us more harm than ten in
Virginia. We haveibe selection of the battle
ground—why choose Maryland P"
In alluding to the same subject, the Wash
ington Republic says that for months after the I
battle of Bull Run we had alarms of an in
tended attack upon this city, and of an intend
ed invasion of Maryland, the point of specula
tion being whether the confederates would
attempt the passage of the Potomac above or ' I
below Washington. As our readers well know,
we never ceased to ridicule those alarrair, and
never ceased to insist that the confederates de
sired nothing better than to keep everything In
stain 2uo, relying upon their greater power of
enduring the strain of war, and the prospect of
exhausting the strength and finances of the
. loyal etates. While the press all around - us
was insisting that the rebel army must either
disperse, or make an attack upoe our lines,.we
maintained, with equal pertinacity, that they
desired nothing so much as entire inaction, and
that that was a game in which we, not they,
must go to the wall.
Time his shown that the rebel leaders never
dreamed of invading Maryland, and that they
had the. capacity, as well as the purpose, to
remain calmly and patiently within their own
lines, upon the exhaustless resources of their
. agriculture, and the labor of four millions of
'laves, held sacred by their scrupulous and
TKO MARCH or EDUCATION.—Our soldiers in
Smith Carolina and at Ilattents, have opened
schools to teach the young and adult negroes
o read. They are said to make apt scholars ;
are anxious to learn, and are industrious.
'Yet it has been urged for years, that the slave
cannot be Improved by being placed in a state
of freedom. It is a fallacy, which the expe
rience of the war so far, is rapidly dissipating.

If we add this amount to the total of the
ordinary annual sources of revenue above, we
will find that the county of Dauphin has con
tributed altogether during the last fiscal year
to the State Treasury, a grand total of one hun
dred and twenty-two thousand, nine hundred and
twenty-four dollars and twenty-two eenk, an amount
which, in proportion to our population, far ex
ceeds that of any other county in the State.
A Fact to be Remembered.
If Messrs. Mason and Slidell have not gone
on a submarine exploring expedition, they have,
by this time, nearly, if not quite, reached Eng
land. It is not, perhaps, unreasonable to ex
pect that a distinguished ovation awaits them.
We must be prepared to hear that their arrival
is hailed with joyous acclaim ; that the " free
dom of cities" has been awarded them ; that
Clubs have welcomed them; that dinners have
been given them ; and that all the honors of
lionhood have been showered down upon them.
Against all this we have, of course, no com
plaint to prefer. If John Ball chooses to stultify
himself by taking slaveholders to his bosom,
upon him let the disgrace fall. We have no
drafts to make either upon his friendship or
his forbearance. We ask nothing of him ei
cept that he shall mind his own business in this
conttdvenry between us and the rebels. We
ask of him simply that he shall "let us alone"
to exercise the rod - of dTsbipm2e rn bur-on.
household, in our own way and in our own
But it might be pertinent to suggest to the
English public that these men whom they pro
pose to honor, are felons not only in our own
eyes, but in the eyes of the world. It might
be worth while to remind them that they have
added to the political offence of treason the so
cial crime of perjury; that both of them were
plotting against the government while under
oath to support the Constitution; that Mr. Ma
son held his seat as Senator months after he
had virtually consummated treason—held it in

Rebellion, open, undisguised, is not necessa
rily a crime per se. But secret treachery under
the guise of friendship—faithlessness to obli

against the State merely, but against society
itself. Let England _beware how she defiles
herself by taking to lier embrace men whose

THE SizQUIEL 02 Al EXECUTION IN THN &Six
ARMY. - There is in the Confederate Army,
near Centreville, an Irish company called the
" Tigers '
" which was recruited, or rather im
pressed, from the Irish population of New Or
leans. Two of them were recently shot for:
some trifling military offence—some disrespect
to their " chivalrous" officers, construed into
mutinous resistance. An account of the exe
cution has been published from the Richmond
papers. An Irish private soldier is, in the
eyes of the Southern blades, of about as much
account as a negro. But the sequel of this
execution is told in a letter from the rebel
camp, which appears in the Nashville-Louis
ville Courier, thus:
"As a sequel to the execution of the two
" Tigers," by order of court martial, I issfirtilo
record that, yesterday morning, the bodies of

mined to take advantage of a dark night, with
the wind off shore, to effect her destruction.—
Accordingly he despatched a cutter under the
command of acting master Mick Allen with
John P. Foote, coast pilot and crew five men,
and a gig under the command of acting master
Sturges, and crew six men. The boats soon
got within a short distance of the light vessel
on the off side of Fort Caswell. The two of
ficers, a boatswain's mate and a quarter master,
climbed on board by a rope which was hanging
at the side. The light boat was quite deserted.
The carpenters had been at work. The vessel
was being pierced for eight guns. No attempt
was made to molest the expedition until they
had kindled the fire, which effectually destroyed
the light ship. The forts did ni.t open on our
boats until they were duly out of hares way.
Firing down the Potomac was heard last
night between 11 and 12 o'clock. It has since
been ascertained that the rebel batteries had
