WedleiflaiiuTrning, Maiich 5, 1862,
Th. movement of troops is Steadily advancing
from this state - to snob points ai,are,lndicated
by the Wai Department. Since the order ,of
(lateral hi'Clellan, issued to Svernor Curtin
lasteweek, for ;inch troop
. att Weire i tn'emiclition
to march, three TegireeptibaVe;been i sent for
war:d,,and either to-day or to-morrow, another,
Colonel. Meredith's, will start' in the same di
redtion. The authorities here are dependent
friefatilitles 'moving troops on those who
haVe in charge the business of transportation.
As fast as this is furnished, Pennsylvania can
contribute the men she now has in camp.
In obedience to an order of the War Depart
ment, the light artillery batteries of Capt.
Ullman and Capt. Waif were , changed into
Infantry corps, and. have been attached to 'Cot
mereqith's regiment. The neceieity which
made this ohange absolute, was ctneerfully so—
oepted by the men and the companies . thus
mustered into another branch of the service
will have the same opportunity to distinguish
thenaselves as Infantry as they .could have bad
as Artillery.
Arrangements have been made which will at
once ate; elerate and secure the organization of
all the troops now in. Camp. Curtin into regi
manta, •an arrangement by which the rights
antithe services of every man engaged in the
recruiting of men will be protected and so
ktumledged. It seems, however, that some
"Arguer-eyed individual is dissatisfied with
this arrangement, and attempts, through the
columns of the Patriot, to show that great ex
travagancewas indulged by the state, because a
certain ntimbir of men were engaged in recruit
ing for acertainnumberof regiments whose men
in the aggregate only amount to sufficient to form
three regiments. The wrong which Argus discov
ers lain paying men for recruiting soldiers, while
,sWarfi i tisiqn never , extended to the cause
that made this recruiting necessary, a cause
which. Is traced to such leaders of hisown party
as Min C brecirinridge,Jesse D. Bright, James
Buchanan, and other luminaries of the Demo
cratic creed. "Argus" never entered his iirotest
against Bright drawing his pay 'when he was
expelled from the Senate as a traitor, nor did
he proAest eget*. a certain Lieutenant-Colonel
drawing hie pay also, while he was lounging
throighithe streets of Iluntingdon and Harris-,
burg uselasit4en as he is now. This see
!DLO's? moat in ones neighbor's eye and failing
to extract ihts.beam from ones oiva eye, is a pe=
ouliaritTgf Woo who delight to fintkfatdt.with
,il,4reo of 'lt t .tyal, men to, crush this rebellion.
Gm Clintamr, while at.the headpf the War
Department, visted, the Department of the West,
and one of the conclusions he then arrived
at, ;Wit the )irnieeessaty delaY in the opera
tioni Of our troops in Keniucky. He had no
fait,h,ln the_boasted superiority of the rebel
force,: and then at once favored and advocated
an immediate' advance in that State. But he
wee over-riled. The border states Union men
claimed that there was an immense force in
Kentucky. Gen Cameron denied the clarm,
and'addhced indisputable facha to show that an
advance or a demonstration would prove that ,
the rebels were in greatly exaggerated num
bent: and that their'force could not withitand
the attack of the army of the Department of
the West. Late events have shown , that Gen.
Cameron was correct. Since we haie obtained
pos#elOi of Bowling Green, it , has been as
certained by. careful inquiry on the spot, that
the rebel force there at no time exceeded
thoosandinen, and that the extent and
,137: Of their' fortifications have been
greally,exaggerated. With this comparatively
small force the rebels held in check, for dreary
months, our immense armies in Kentucky.--

fully gratified.
It is now po=itively stated that the Commit
tee of Ways and Means, in Congress, will re
oct Tax Bill to the, House during
ithe present week. We trust that there is some
truth in this report, simply because the delay
which this subject has undergone, is represented
by our enemies es the evidence that the American
people will not submit to taxation. This impres
sion is put forth in localities where the disposi
tion of our people is little understood, and
where the misrepresentation will have a dam
=eging'•effect upon thli natioiael and
reputation. If it is believed that the : people
refuse to be taxed ; or if it is understood that a
tax law %net, be framed so nicely ancliinipar
-04c40 almost make its operation; %effect
ive, the result will be , the same on the com
mercial . and financial world, ; and end of
Wtidit he 'reached through either
of these misapprahertilions'of the truth. The
people of the country are not particular as to
theViricide of-id:Oh* Money Vo de'fray the ei
penses of this war. The fact that a great debt
icaccumnlating and that it must be liquidated,
is sufficient for them ~to know, and knowing
this, theyhave.a,right to demand of those who
are irepowsred to devise and fix revenues to
meet this debt, that as little delay as possible
be had in the premiieti. Every week's delay in
fixing an equitable ratio of taxation, adds 'to
the aggregate of our Indebtedness, and aug-,
C 1244 the. financial collusion 'inio which we
are fast veering.
In this matter of taxation we have attempted
to apologise for the delay until we haie been
suspected and charged with contributing to the
delay itself, by thus assisting to screen Con
gress from the appeals and the urgent demands
of the people tin this subject; We do ri i pt expect,
however, that it single newspaper article will
have any effect either way ; and yet members
of Congress would do well to remember that
this subject of taxation is better understood by
the pimple . at large, than . is that, of any other
matter directly connected with the suppression
of the rebellion. We have the resources and
the labor for their development, to meet any
possible amount of taxation, of course rated and
apportioned . % such a manner as to make the
soil, the interests and the industry of the rebel
states, in time, bear their proportion of such
taxation. In strict justice, the robels should
be compelled eventually to pay all the debt in-,
curred in their own suppression and chastise- .
ment, butin order to prove that the people ate
earnestly devoted to the Union, they are will
ing to share, this responsibility and contribute
equally to this liquidation. All that is de
mancled, is the rate and objects of taxation.
When these ate'determined, Congress will find
the people patriotically determined to contri
bute the last dollar and expend the last breath
in labor to maintain the government and vindi
cate its authority.
Since the above was written, we notice that
a general tax bill has been reported to Con
gresi. Its provisions in brief are published in
another column, to which we invite the.atten
lion of the reader.
On TSAR ago Abraham Lincoln was inangu
rated President. One year ago, to day, the
people of the south were inflated with the idea
and conviction that they had the power to dis
organize this government, destroy its author
itY, and bring the great free states of the "Union,
each of itself an empire, down to ' the feet of
the slave power, in abject submission and cow
ardice. One year ago, to-day, the boast was
openly made in.the streets of Washington, that
Abraham Lincoln would not occupy the White
House for one month"; That the Federal Con
grez iiv,ould never : again be convened in Wash
ington city. That the Federal Flag would not
survive to float from the dome of the Federal
Capital, and : that the free states, beaten, con
quered and humiliated, would acknowledge the
rule of Jeff. Davis, and submit to any demand
which the advocates of that usurper might
see fit to make on them, either for the right to
extend' the operations or increase the franchises
of,slavery. These were the boastings of the
skive power and its traitor adherents, one year
ago. Such was the faith and the confidence,
also, of those who secretly sympathized with
that power, and the opportunity among the
dough %mein the north, was even more greed
ily anticipated than it was , in the south, towel
come the usurpation of, the traitor chief, and
sigmatize with rejoicing the downfall of the
rightful authority of the land.
—But one year has made a change in. the
dreams and the designs of traitors. They have
learned to estimate their own power less, and
have becoma , convinced• that the people of the
loyal states are not the cowards which they be
lieved th em to be , to become intimidated by a
treasonable demonstration, or an armed array
of traitors: The great truth has been estab
lished, and the world, acknowledges the fact,
that the loyal men of this government are able
to maintain all its power and enforce all its
authority. The rebellion has proven itself only
the effervescent malignanci of . desperate men,
incapable of anything but demonstration ; im
potent of itself as a belligerant,, and unable to
giYe 'force to any claim which it has Made, in
a fair, fearless and manly contest of arms. It
is the meanest of all the mean rebellions which
- wee ever inaugurated, because it has tyrants
foPleaders and demagogues fur advisers; and
as the" reiolution, which its adherents claim
for it, it is unlike all other revolutionary strug
gles described in history, as being the only one
which was ever precipitated for slavery.

It wlli . niint require s anoiher year still further
to prove the impotency of those who seek the
destruction of the American nation. Their
dooin and their destruction are written on the

tion I
Tint Locum° Passe are claiming that the
Democratic (?) leaders have pursued a straight
forward r:tolicy, in relation to the war to sup
press rebellion. We admit the fact, but it has
been a straight-forward policy to aid the rebels
wherever an opportunity was offered.
