Monday Morning, March 12, 1862.
We alluded, a few days since, to the subject,
of military promotions, and the power to fill
vacancies, as both the promotion and that
power now exist in the volunteer forces • of the
armies of the. Republic. Since then, while
pondering the subject, our attention ' has been
arrested by several facts, which it is important
that the public should know and understand.
Promotion in the regular army was a monopoly
controlled entirely by the' graduates of the
West Point Military Academy, through which ,
no galltsnt sertice, no deed 'of daring, or no life
time of devotion by the private soldier, could
break. He might as well attempt to pierce the
rook of Gibraltar with' his bayonet, as seek tn
tivale regular officer in his grade by emulating
his gallantry or even excelling his efficiency.
The thing was impossible, until the' noce4dtiele
of this war authorized the, raising .of some
twelve or fifteen ;regiments, to be attached to
the regular army. When thoSettiimente Were
organised, the commissioned, lothers Were
fesigited nicesiarify, from graduates , of,. West,
„with the eioeption of that of second
lieutenant, Which, by order of Oen. deffierim,
then Elticretary War, ; wag left vacant, to„ ;be
pea. by appointment from the ranks of such
noncommissioned officers as had earned the
position by fairend manly conduct' On the field.
The romitof thus leaving the position of second
lieutenancy open at the organisation of these
new regiments, will be to encourage the private
With the truth; that the highest, grade in the
army is within his mob, if he evince the merit
cud exercise the (mirage to win the petit of
honor. This idea of promotion from the ranks
is of French origin, and was carried out by
Napoleon with the most satisfactory results.
A French soldier sees in the highest position in
the army a poet . which he cad reach, if he
S weep the talent and , display the ardor to win
that sliace. With the English soldier,; and in
fact with the soldiers of every nation, excepting;
those of Pronto, the case is different. Heitker
soritoe or' deeds entitle him to promotion.
He may become maimed, sickened and Cualitted
for'all service Still thereis no other honor
rtcognition'for'him at the hande of his govern
ment, but a couch in a hospital, or . a crutch,
with a pension large enough to fttrnish
with tot:4lool3'mnd grog. Renee the enthusiastic
devatidn of , the French eoldier, and hence, too,.
the desertions which so frequently occur , in all
the other armies of Europe.
The °ionic law of the Reserve Corps of
Pennsylvania, invests the soldier in the ranks
with the power of electing his ovin officers and.

vaosneles of officers can only be filled by the

is .ged,, by the spirit of rivalry and the. in
fluences of corrupt .competition, has 'made it
impossible for the men to agree. in numerous
instances, thus leaving Many'vicancies . yet urr.

has nothing to do, and bre reflection more upon ,

Congreler has empowered the Governors of-the
various states todll ' any vacancies thus °coin"-
ring, by ippointment: Thus for instande the
Governor of; Pennsylvania has the exclusive
power of filling all vacancies occurring in all
regiments recruited and organized by this state,
except those cemprishig the Reserve Corps. The
restintlon before the legislature seeks to confer
this power with respect to,the Reserve Corps
also, and It is on this point that adifferencs of
opinion ;exists, such as we noticed in these col

already been sufficiently discussed, as to make
any further reference to it entriely. unnecesiari.

We print to-day, the defence of Alexander
Cummings, whose name has been connected
with certain alleged frauds in contracts, for fur
nishing the government with munitions of war,
clo . .g, subsistence and transportation for
t ... Oar readers will remember that' the
1 7ture of Mr. Cummings, has been before the
'nary for several months in no very enviable
light, and that he has been charged with dis
honlafty in the speeches of members of Con
gress, in the correspondence oi.Washiuigton let
ter writers, in the editorial of newspapers, and
in every way possible to damage and damn
him,- have his-public acts and private reputa
tion been assailed. Those who pursued Mr.
Cummings thus relentlessly, had other objects
in•view4han the destruction of one man's char
rater, a work of itself sufficient to 'gratify porn
.on lmred i t tid •vintilciiveneas. They ) hoied
that „w hile they were striking at him, their
poisoned shafts would carry their venom
through the - person of Mr. Cummings to others
whom: they: dared not personally assail,but whom
they n o ime desperately desired to di3strOy-
Thus while 'these assaults were understood and
scorned, 'they could - only be answered by ki.r.
Cummihge who was compelled to withhold his
reply until within a few weeks since, owing to
his severe illness and absolute confinement to
his room, a fact which his yretched enemies
turned:to good account, by perverting his - ii
lence into a report that he had gone felEar - opt),
there 'to escape the
,pdium of his acts and 'the
punishment which was his due. All this miff-
Weiner*. was used to swell public clam&
against the man ) and create suspicion in regard
to his officialdisbimaement of the monies of the
gelvemment; 4mi:the accounts of Mr. Cum
mings had been fairlyadjusted lathe Treasury,
and when any member of the committee
whose ohairMan intently sought to blast his
character, rardd have informed himself of the
trusfacte ire the case, as to the positive rectitude
of the conduct pursued by Mr: Cummings;
The statement which we present this after
noon is a plain and unvarnished aeries of facts,
sustained by the oorroborated evidence of Abe
'4padq'ig twoCepar,linents and, the eertificate
.of adjustment of the'properaccounting officers
of the government. AU this was proffered to;
the committee that, charges Me. Cummings'
with misatanagennent,a4 fraud, but it was re-'
;W. li,wwkrejected and 'warded off ; doubt
less i because the truth> in this instance would
have affected the veracity of certain members of
that committee, who had- been delighting their
peculiar friends with a relation of the proceed
ings of the. committee and the rich develdp
meats its. report would 'Wake ; and Mine to
mainiain their assertions, the foulest slanders
,that'ever, Were uttered 'against the reputation
of ,any_man,. were. allowed. to take an official
shape against Alexander Cummings: file de:
fence however clearly establishes his inno
cence. establishes the fact, too, that he
was not only' the subject of .malevolence so far
aiithe misrepresentation of facts Were concerned,
but he has clearly. convicted . the committee
which,so mifairly, resolved' on' his destruction,
with, having garbled and misprinted his own
written letient. ' .
Me submit the defencebf Mr. Cummings
frankly to our readmit. Me statomeatel or.te;
serve the greatest credence, while he himself Is
entitled ,to credit for the coolness : and courtesy
with.which he deals with those who gave him
,such just came for ire and indignation.

WHEN CONFISCATION WILL
Those who assume that confiscation
lead to certain destruction, will ehange
their arguments, when the practical effects of
the tax bill begins to be felt by the people..
The support of the government hereafter will
not merely constitute the defrayal of the ex
penses of the civil list. That will sink into insig
nificanoe, when compared with other demands
whichwill be made upon the treasury and the
resources of the people. In the first place, the
civil expenses of the government will be aug
mented,notwithstanding Congressmenare prone
to reduce t]e cleriiial expenses of each depart
ment, without evincing the last dispositiowto
cnt down their own salaries. Added to this,
the iliterest on the ,ndlltons which are beling.
expended to citahrelaillioU, muftbe met every
.year ; while the of that debt Will press
hard for liquidation,.and must of course event
ually be paid. These .are additional etOensis.
They.occur at a time when trade and inechats
ism are not in the most -prosperona condition ;
and in Addition to all these demands on the
treasury, where will we derive thimeans neces
Barr to support a large military force; after the ,
rebellion has been conquered? It will require )it
least fifty thousand men to insure the certain
operation of the federal law in the rebel states,
for a term of years which ho man can nose.
Where h& the money to come from to pay
these expenses? . Whence are the means tobe
derived to 'rkirsiat also in aiding those who are
loyal to emancipate their slaves? Must it code
out of the west and toil and chberlesi struggle
of the white main 'I. These are questions that
never enter into the consideration of legielators,
-but we haven notion. that when the taxes are.
Wing Collected, these toiling; white men' wilt
begin to regard confiscation scarcely as un`i•
constitutional as some 'of our legislators now
esteem that question..
,There• is nothing:like
practical, operations for the production of
_practical results. • Nothing will so clearlY
demonstrate the influences and evils of staver,
ref the necessity of maintaining en army of. Aft;
