llbuday Afternoon. February 24, 1862.
Tu■ DESOLATION OP THE SOUTH is the result
of the vandalism practiced by the rebels them
selves. They have destroyed their own rail
roads, burned their own bridges, ravaged their
own cities and laid waste their own fields. The
federal troops thus far have advanced into the
south, without burning or destroying a single
article of personal property As they proceed
on their march, it h is rather their business to re
store what the traitors have destroyed, and to
succor a people who have been pillaged and
plundered by their own neighbors, the, pro
fessed upholders of southern rights and
principles. Aud all this desolation has
come, not 'While the rebels were in the
act of resisting the progress of the fede
ral troops. They did not destroy their proper
ty after endeavoring gallantly to defend it from
capture. They destroyed it before an enemy
was in sight, and have been flying before the
advance of our troops, refusing to give them
battle, and thus refusing, too, to put to the
test that boasted superiority of the people of
the south over the people of the north.
Tbese facts will some day be quoted
with terrible effect against the originators
and leaders of the rebellion. They will
prove to the deluded people of the slave
states, that, instead of delivering blows to
vindicate their social and political rights, they
were striking blows to weld the chains of
that vassalage in which the system of southern
slavery demands that all labor shall exist in its
relations to capital. The bitterest lessons
which the free white men told mechanics of the
south have yet to learn, are those which will
be taught by the facts and results of the rebel
lion to which their support now contributes
force and numbers, and it is in these lessons
that we hope these same men will derive that
knowledge which is hereafter to render them
peace loving and law abiding citizens.
Wno norms with the mothers of the sol
diers slain in battle? Who condoles with them
at the humble fire-hearth?—who has sympathy
for those mothers in their widowhood, nnpro_
touted, as they weep for the loss of those who
went bravely forth at the call of their country,
full of hope, full of ardor, and full of patriotic
desire to do or die for their country? The loyal
states are full of these mothers. They totter
'don the high end by-ways. Some rf them
are homeless and friendless—cheerless and
nameless to the world. Yet their hearts are
full of sorrow, and they are utterly bowed down
with grief Humble though these mourners
are, they are still American matrons —the eq cal
of those in any station, however exalted it may
be for the present—the mothers of those who
have died in battle, or who are still arrayed
against the enemies of the Union. We must
not forget them in their sorrow or their lonell
ness. They do not ask that Senates shall ad
journ or that Cabinets must pause in their work
to pay respect to their sorrow. They do not
desire that a whole nation shall repress its joy
or the feeiing of victory, because that victory
has been to them the loss of so many heart
jewels. They havea right to ask the gratitude of
the nation, and this we bespeak for them richly
garnered in the beads of the American people.
It will come to them in such shapes as will be
the more acceptible because it is neither
prompted by sycophancy or controlled by de
ceitful self-interest. It will come in the offer
ings of honest and Christian sympathy—such
sympathy as mothers feel for mothers who
really love their country, and who lost sons
whose deaths were signalled by a rifle crack or a
sabre thrust. It • : vill be rendered by the whole
nation. It will be increased and encouraged by
that God, who, to His approbation of a just
anise, gives His approval of those who die that
Truth, Liberty and Justice may survive. Let
none of us, then, forget the mothers of the sol
diers who.are daily dying in battle.
Tan Gusurs were in the habit of erecting
wooden monuments to commemorate any event
in their history .which partook of a political
triumph ; ; so that as the asperities of that
political rivalry diminished, and a better feel
ing began to prevail among the people, the
monuments which thus sought the commemo
ration of the superiority of one party over the
other, also perished or crumbled to pieces. In
this manner, the Greeks never perpetuated
their feuds-and in this manner the antago
nized citizens of , the United States must con
clude to do honor each to their own triumphs.
Let us, therefore, erect our monuments in
wood, so that as the asperities of the present
pa off, and a better feeling begins to prevail
among. a new order, of citizens, the monuments
of our victories of one over the other will
dwindle away as the race follows in the march
of that grand army whose steps lead on to the
grave. We neither must bequeath our trou
bles or the monuments of our humiliation and
disgrace to posterity. Let us rather so purify
and annals the government, as to make its
history and itt future administrations both
object s of the veneration and loyalty of those
who are to come after us. It will be sufficient
to permit the deeds of the present to pass off in
monuments of wood, so that, as national
animosity in,time decam.the remembrance of
it may perish also.
Ryan Yowtot. Eaq., Editor of the Ticper
tor, has declined the appointment of Consul to
the Danish West Indio* He prefers to remain
at home, Mjd:,l„nteindjs to devote himself to the
dodo of bigprofejnion4.,: 3 - .
Four months since, the people of the loyal
states evinced great impatience at what they
considered the delay of those who had in charge
and controlled our military organisation and
operations. On to Richmond was the standing
motto of newspapers, the repeated sentiment of
the people, and the urgent advice of Congres
sional orators. When the delay was broken by
a hasty and ill-councilled assault on the works
of the enemy near Manassas, the disastrous re
sult seemed for a time to cheek the impatience
of the people ; but it was only for a brief time,
when the same intolerant disposition strove
again to dictate to the better judgment of those
who were straining mind and muscle to perfect
the raw recruit, consolidate the incongruous
mass, and bring our armies to a condition of
discipline and order such as would render them
invincible in the field, when that great encoun
ter occurred which has been impending so long
between their foes and themselves. Rut the se
quel to this delay begins to startle the Ameri
can people with emotions different from those
aith which they contemplated its monotonous
continuation from day to day. As our troops
now advance from one position to occupy new
points or more advantageous ground, it is ac
companied with the order of trained soldiers
and the precision of tried veterans. They meet
their foes steadily, sternly and persistently.—
They force victory from them as they are en
trenched in almost impregnable strongholds,
and dictate terms of capitulation to traitors at
the mouths of their own cannon. Had these
same armies been precipitated on the traitors,
immediately after their organization, who can
estimate the disasters that would have fol
lowed? Had they been organized into expedi
tions and landed on the enemy's shores, who
can question their ultimate overthrow and cow•
plate extermination? No man who has any
judgment now doubts the sound policy of that
delay which has enabled our troops to gain the
discipline and perfection to which alone our
victories can justly be attributed. It was not
the delay of supineness, indecision, or faltering
imbecility. It was a delay dictated by a judg
ment which was sustained by a full knowledge
of all our weakness in numbers and discipline.
When our numbers were augmented to the re
quired maximum, and the discipline of the
army had reached its proper standard, the word
to advance was given, and a victory immedi
ately achieved, such as was due to the repute
thin of the country, the cause in which these
armies were engaged, and the peace they hoped
thus signally to render perpetual.
In proportion as we have been impatient
with the operations of the army, we have also
become petulent with the proceeding of legisla
tive bodies. Our impatience is expressed iu
harsh words and often harsher accusations,
because Congress has not at once and perfectly
leg's' tted on the subject of the currency. In
this particular, as in reference to the army, we
cannot understand the necessity of delay. We
imagine that it requires neither thought or
digestion to create a paper currency—that an
immense debt can be incurred without the ne
cessity of calculating bow that debt is to be
sustained—how its interests are to be met and
satisfied, and finally as to how the principal Is
to be secured and honorably liquidated. These
questions must be as fairly pondered and as
deliberately considered, as it was necessary for
those who controlled the raw recruit to secure
his thorough tr Wing and perfect discipline
before he was led to battle. When this is at
tained—when the Representatives have fairly
considered and perfected their measures of a
currency and their system of taxation, the court
try will doubtless be as much surprised and
satisfied as they have been with the move
ments and victories of the army after it had
expended its ridicule at the incompetency of
its officers and its wrath on the unaccountable
delay of its marches. We will have a sound
currency in a few months, that will be as secure
and popular in the state of Maine, as it will be
acceptible and satisfactory in the far off Maloof
California. We will have a system of taxation,
too, that will equally impose the duty of contri
butiog the means of supporting the government,
until by taxation, production and economy, the
nation pays the last dollar of its indebtedness.
Then those who now complain at the tardiness
of Congress, will hail and commend the wisdom
which thus provided for the maintainance of
the national integrity—while the confidence
and credit thus established will forever exist to
aid the government in any future embarrass
ment that may, arise in its progress or in the
exercise of its just authority. Delays, that
may be dangerous In most cases, have proven
of salutory effect and influence in the instance
of our present military operations, simply be
cause they were the delays dictated by judg
ment and a patriotic desire to gunrd against all
emergencies and circumstances that would
either cast doubt on the integrity of our cause
or imperil the success of our arms. Let us
then be less prompt. to denounce what .we
not appreciate, and more patient to bide that
which we-do not understand.
LINCOLN AND CAMERON.
The editor of the Brownsville Meekly Clipper
responds to a stern truth when he declare that
the enemies of the late Secretary of War—for
there never was a man, however 'great or
good, without his enemies—were exceedingly
busy for some time after Mr. Cameron's resig
nation, in striving to create the impression
that he wag "dismissed" by the President,
without his previous knowledge or consent.— t
How much truth there is in this assertion,
may be inferred from the correspondence be
tween the President and the late Secretary, and
which we desire all our readers to peruse, who
are willing to do justice to a patriotic, faithful,
and laborious public officer.
We are behind no ono in our admiration for
the energy, earnestness and ability of Mr. Stan
ton, the present Secretary of war;'but at the
same time, we cannot forget, nor will the
country forget, the different circumstances un
der which Mr. Cameron and Mr. Blanton en

Wa DiIJ3S PILESBRITS THU EQUELIBILIIMI OF TEM
Cossirrumos, has been one of the favorite cries
of the people of the south. The equilibrium
insisted upon, was in making a small minority
of states equal in power and influence to any
majority of other states, however large, and in
giving to a single interest and social institu
tion an equi-ponderant might with all other
interests and institutions of the country-I;ocl
bined. Thus in Pennsylvania there are more
white inhabitants than in any three of tie
cotton states, and yet Pennsylvania, with her
superiority of interests, inhabitants and intelli
gence, in order to preserve the equilibrium of
the Constitution, is only the equal of either one
of these three slave states, in the most im
portant branch of the legislative department
of the government.
THE members of the Legislature seem to hive
enjoyed themselves very much on their recent
trip to Philadelphia, celebrating 'the 22d.
They were cordially welcomed in "Old Inde
pendence Hall," by Mr. Theodore Cuyler,
President of Select Council. The reply of
Hon. Lewis W. Hall, Speaker of the Senate, on
behalf of the Legislature, was in becoming
taste, and is spoken of by every one as beauti
ful, eloquent and patriotic, worthy of Speaker

that Government can now render to the coun
try, the surrender of the helm to abler and
better hands. Inview of the past, the present

compensation for the ruin of a free people. A
