THE TREAOHERY Off STONE.
There is something so startling, and at the
same time so convincing, in the arrest and ac
cusation of General Stone as a traitor, that the
country seems to be impressed with the' wonder
—first, that he should have held command and
facility thus to betray his country without de
tection, and that he should have been permit
ted to live a single hour after the first evidence
of his guilt was developed. The arm of any
loyal man id the fair administrator of justice
in such cases ; or the limb of a tree and an idle
halter would perhaps be the most effective and
economical mode to deal justly with such a
wretch. It appears now that it was net only
Stone's treachery in planning the assassination
of the gtillant Baker and his equally gallant
men in the snare of Ball's Bluff, which has led
to his arrest, but there is other evidence against
him of even a more damning character in the
shape of correspondence, guii•g conclusively to
show that he was on terms of the most intimate
relationship with the rascally and contemptible
traitor Beauregard. After the suspicion of the
country bPkan to assume tpe .dtiect shape of
specific c.harges against Stout for his supposed
complicity in the Ball's Bluff slaughter, Beau
regard and his aids busied themselves in hunt
lug up evidence which would assist Stone in
clearing his epaulettes of these charges, and
also went so far as to sympathize with him be
cause the loyal press indulged in these charges.
Alen litive been hung on less evidence than
that which is arrayed against Stone ; and yet if
he is able to clear himself from the grave
charges preferred against him, we shall rejoice
fcir the sake of the cause which has already suf
ferred by either his neglect, inability or trea
son; and which is equally disgraced .by his ar
rest. The trial of Stone must be speedy,
thorough and fatr, as the country is in no mood
to submit to any delay or trifling in a matter so
THE NATIONAL FOUNDRY.
It seems that a bill was drawn for presehta
tion to the Senate of the United States, having
in view the establishment of a National Foundry,
which expressly designated • that its location
should be at. Bloomfield, in this state. This
foot, however, aroused the animosity and an
tagonism of the greedy speculators of New
York, who sought to have the bill changed,
and succeededirr having Bloomfield expunged,
and the locality of the Foundry still open to
the uncertainty of delay. The very fact that,
an attempt is being made to have these works
located at some point on Hudson river In
NOW York, should arouse our citizens to a more
vigorous effort to have the Foundry located
somewhere In Dauphin county, and if it is not
possible for us to secure its location in our own
immediate vicinity, to prevent its erection in
any other state. Pennsylvania has geographi
ml, mineral and territorial claims on the gov
ernment for the location of the National Foundry,
so that if those who have the matter officially
in charge fail to discover those advantages, in
this commonwealth, it will be alone owing to a
precOnCeived conclusion and decision on the sub
ject 4 . In the meanwhile our scientific, business
and industrial classes must not suffer any op
*amity to pass which will insure the location
Of the Foundry in, this vicinity.
TEE INTEREST ON THE STATE DEB 2:
It seems only just that the following fair
let i ter, "addreSsed by the State Treasurer to Mor
ton McMichael, Esq., Philadelphia, should be
published in every newspaper in the Comtnon-
Wealth, as an act•of justice to the parties con
cerned. And we Concur the commendation
bestowed by this letter, because the banks of
the state have actod toward the government
with a liberality which has won for them the
Ontidence of all who understand the extent to
Which they aided the state.
TP,MNEN:g DEPARTIKRIM OS PENNSYLVANIA,
Harriqburg, Feb. 12, 1862.
Dear Bit—As the press of our state have very
generally alluded in commendatory terrns, to
the fact that the interest on our state debt was
paid in specie ittrequilialent on the Ist hum,
I deem it but an act of Justice to the banks of
our commonwealth to state that It was through
their liberality and patriotism that the payment
of the interest was made in this form, without
any cost to the state; they having responded
most cordially (with very few exceptions) to my
appeal to them for this purpose, and it is but
another evidence of the noble manner in which
the-banks of our commonwealth have sustained
our state and national governments in this hour
of trial to our country. Such action as this is
certainly worthy of a public recognition, and it
is with very great pleasure that 1 call your at
tention to it. Yours truly,
HENRY D. MOORE,
'''Wesurrarros's Bnerm.Dat anniversary is ap
proaching once more its proud Memories unob
soused by the doubts and fears, the harrassing
ac cusations of treason and terrible facts of re
volt which etish t reilded it ene year ago. One

fused to trust each other, while the dog:tin/nit
parties in power at the national capital, folded
their arms before the gathering storm, with
the no less traitorous declaration that there
was no authority vested in the President to pre
vent secession or arrest rebellion. One year
ago, on Washington's birth-day, James Bu
chanan, then President of the United States,
refused to permit a company of U. S. Artillery
to manouvre on parade in the streets of Wash
ington city, because; as it Was then alleged, " it
might tend to exasperate the already excited
feelings of the people (traitors) of the south."
One year ago; ott'llag, the glorious - stars and
stripes, was trailed in the dust in the south.
But to-day, and as the anniversary of Washing:
ton's birth-day approaches, there is no more
doubt in, the - public mind—no 'more • uncer
tainty and wavering imbecility in the Execu
tive Departmentg of the nation—while the stars
and stripes once more proudly loat in every state
in the American Union. In consideration , of
these results and facts, the birth-day of Wash
ington should be appropriately observed where
everthe loyalty of the people will permit such
ari observance. It should be hailed in grati
tude and decorum, with thanksgiving and re
joicing—with such demonstration as will do
honor to the memory of our great Chief, as
well as such respect as will renew the general
confidence in the national cause. The patriotic
people of the state , capital shmild make some
arrangements looking to such a celebration ;
among the most appropriate of whichwould be
r a grand illumination on the evening of the 22d.
of February. Who will move in . thie matter,
so as to gain a full understanding on the ' sub
A WORD TO TEE DEMOCRATIC MASSES.
To doubt theloneety and patriotism of the
Democratic masses,- is to question the loyalty
of a large and respectable portion of the Aineri
can people. But to deny that these Same
masses are often misled by a class of desperate,
designing and corrupt political aspirants, would
be equal to a refusal to accept a historical fact
orroborated by those cotiimporary with its
existence. This disposition to control these
same masses was never more manifest than it
is now, when the country is most imminently
in danger, and when any - other course on the
part of these same leaders would result in the
most surprising and sublime success. It is
persistently maintained by the leaders of these
masses, that 'any interference with slavery for
the suppression of the slave:holders rebellion,
would be both unconstitutional and impolitic.
These declarations are made In the faith that
by a reconstruction of the Union, the old in
fluences and power of the institution of slavery
will again be wielded to maintain the old De
mocratic party, while those who are thus iltUb
bornly insisting on the sacred protection of the
interests of the south, will be Pioliticalli re
warded with the support of their political
rations by the reclaimed southern alavehold
ing traitors. And we have no doubt that such
would be the result of any settlement ofi our
present difficulties on the plea of preserving all
the influences and interests of slavery ; ' but
while the Democratic masses are thus per
mitting their leaders to use them for! the
postponement of a settlement of the vexed
question of -rebellion by other means thin
that of the sword, they forget 'that Such
a postponement is daily adding almost a 6211
lion of dollars to the expenses and the debts of
the nation. By refusing to. assist in putting
down 'the rebellion with e very power at the
command of the iegitimate government) the
burdens of the people are' increased, the debt
of the natiion is augmented; and the futurist of
a'onee happy;' proud 'and prospereus govern
ment rendered terribly dark and dreary by the
certainty - of taxation and bankruptcy. 'very
day's delay in the 'suppression of the' rebellion
is equal to a judgment on 'every faith: land
homestead in the land. Every day's postpone
ment of making the cause' of the rebellion
the influence for its crushing 'out, binds a
claim on free labor, which neither one or !two
generations inay be able to liquidate, !but
which may be fastened on our children and our
children's children, like the iron collar of i the
mythical tyPtint, Which galled 'the necks of its
I wearers until they sunk exhansted . hs the grave.
By postponing the prompt suppression of! the
rebellion, we are forging these collars for s
terity; when a blow at a tingle Infliiiince
would Crueh the treason, unfetter . once 'more

the land; send thesoldior hack thesoil or
the workshop, and make us as a nation, hap

The idea of reconstructing the' Union on the
old"basits,',inil securities of slaiery, Is simply
rediculous, It can never be accomplished, be
cause the. traitors themselves declare that they
would not consent to reunite, unlesi those
securities were increased, "and the privileges
they claim for their institutions considerably
enlarged. This is their 'argument, and to sat
isfy these demands; thesleaders Of the 'Demo
cratic masses in the north are busy in creating
prejudices against those who on the other. Side
desire to reconstruct the Union, without regard
to the peculiar rights of the people of any Sec
tion, so that the general rights and protiperity
of the people of all sections are guarded: se
cured and perpetuated. The crown jewel' of
1 our system is the Union. It has been sit in
ebony for many years, and in that condition
its lustre has been dimmed and its value im
paired. Let us then' reset the gem, but not in
ebony—not in the clasp of the blicknesS of
slavery—but in the purity and beauty? of
the Anglo Saxon hue, fixing our system thus
on a white basie, and thus tee destroying 'the
influences of those institutions which must for
ever exist, if they are permitted to exist at all,
only to antagonize the success and impede the
progreelf of free instittitions and fre e men.
This settlement of the strife growing out of
this rebellion, in the:prompt-manner we ide
scribe, by making slavery bear the brunt and
furnish the power to secure such an`end, is
the only means to save the natioiffitim the 'most
stupendous indebtedness. Every day that we
postpone this settlement prolongs the war' , in-,
defulitely and inereatiett itelmrden incalculably.

forget, too, that while they are-flghtingi to - prAt
vent the use of slavery so as to conduce to the
success of the war against the traitors, the
traitors themselves are also fighting to increase
the strength of that very same influence, that
it may aid in the destruction of the Union.
We ask the masses of the democratic party to
ponder these facts and arguments. We ask
them to reflect, whether it would be best en

whether the war should be prolonged and our
indebtedness increased merely to satisfy a few'
political aspirants in the north who are fearful
that' with the eitfuclion of slavery comes also
the obliteration of all their hopes of political
preferment and power. Let the germ of
