TEE CITY ELECTION.
The approaching city election has thus far
created no other feeling than that of a general
desire to elect the very best men "in all the
wards, and thus far secure for the city govern
ment in all its der artments, the most efficient
service and largest economy. We are pleased
to notice this fact, more particularly at this
time, wham in local elections such as the one
approaching, there should be none of those di
visions of parties which seem essential in other
elections involving the issue of principles which
neither party are willing to trust to the legisla
tion or executive enforcement of the other. One
of the most important officers to be elected to
morrow, is that of City Treasurer. It is there
fore necessary that none but the most reliable
and deserving should be allowed to assume its
responsibilities and take charge of its trusts.
The Republican and Union conferees have
nominated Oman Thunman., from the
First Ward, for this position, and in present
ing him to the support of the people, we have
the advantage of being able to urge in his be
half the essential qualifications of winpetency
and honesty. Added to these, Mr. Troilinger is
known to nine-tenths of the tax-payers of the
city as a sober and industrious working man ;
ati ohe who has contributed largely to the suc
cess of every mechanical enterprise, and as one
who, at this time, is peculiarly deserving of the
support of the people at large. While Mr. T.
himself does not make any particular claim on
this account, and while he feels equal to the
task of combatting with the overwhelming
misfortune of fire which so lately' prostrated
and destroyed his investments and 'business
prospects, we frankly confess our gratification
that the people of Harrisburg have resolved to
show their Sympathy for a worthy man, by
aiding him in every honorable manner to re -1
trleve his fortunes while he is serving the pub
lic. We trust that this purpose may be suc
cessful. We trust that every liberal and enter
prising man will sustain Mr. Truilinger, and we
are certain that no confidence reposed in him
will ever be abused, or no trust confided to his
care, ever sutler by his election as City Treasurer.
TEE COUNTY SUIT.
The appeal of the County Commissioners from
the report of the County Auditors, which was to
have been tried this morning before His Honor
Jidge Pearson, was postponed for another term
on the application of the County Auditors, who
declared their inability to try the cause in the
absence of John P. Rutherford, who left yester
day afternoon for Washington. The Commis•
sioners, through their counsel, John Adam
Maher, opposed the postponement strenuously,
biltlifter legal grounds had bean given for that
zurpose, the court could do nothing less than
grant the application of the Auditors. We have
heretofore refrained from taking part in -the
disputes between the parties 'litigant, and
now, after a careful examination of all the facts,
we candidly believe that the county can gain
nothing by having these contests in the courts
The cotnt•house was erected and completed for
a less sum and in a more substantial manner
than any similar building in the state, and if
O t e Commissioners have expended a few thou
send dollars more was at first appropria
tett' for this purpose, the tax-payers will not ask
them for a ahilliog to pay that sum out of their
own pockets. We feel inclined , to believe that
the cost already incurred by the Auditors, to
gether with the lawyers' fees and other expenses
already paid, will far exceed the amounts ex
pended to be saved by the county. All of the ex
penses incurred will eventually come from the
tax-payers, and the sooner, therefore, the mat
ters in controversy are amicably settled, the
better it will be for the tax-payers. We shall
refer to this subject again.
W, W. H. Davis, the proprietor of the Doyle-,
Own Democrat, is in the volunteer service at the
head of a gallant regiment, while " Shyster
Somebody-else" is at home in Doylestown, using
the columns of the Democrat to slander every
man as an abolitionist and a coward, who evin
ces a devotion to freedom by regarding slavery
as a hell-born and earth cursing principle.—
We do not deny to Col. Davis the qualities of
courage and energy, but he must not deem it
strange if the people regard his course as in
consistent and his devotion as questionable, if,
while he is jeopardising his life and pouring
out, his blood in the field, he allow others to
use his property with which to assail the true
principle of loyalty, and behind his name,
screen themselves from the retribution of the
Jaw and the indignation of the people. The
Democrat fumes like a chronic spinster whenever
it attempts to reply to an argument on the
cause of the rebellion, and is more prolific of
epithets for those who deem the disfranchise-
anent of slavery as the destruction of rebellion,
than,thtmost venal and vituperative sheet in

FAMES IN 7HE REBELLION.
When the conspiracy of the slave holders
showed its venom, and when the supposed su-
periority of the southern rebels was a theme (or
the discussion and ventilation of the dough
faces of the north, the front men of the Repnb
lican party were tauntingly told that they m ust
tight down the rebellion on their.own respond-
Witty, as the Democracy had n q connection either
in creating, or no inclination in crushing, the
raid. This is a historical fact.
When the country discovered the appalling
extent of the treason;-and when- forikthue.the
people almost shrank from the contest which,
by villifying Democratic tongues, they had been
taught would ba unequal and disastrous, the
energy: of the nation was aroused by thfa bold-.
ness of a Bepnbltbsn itdministrathin, and 'at 'once
a force Was brought Into the field to cope with
traitors. When. this force:was being 'discfplined
—when the raw recruit was asked to yield to the
rigor of the damp, and when, during the first
enrollment, it was thought that the wax would
be finished in a few, months, the Democratic
party, through its leaders, struggled in every
manner to'embarrass the Operations of the army
by prejudicing the baldness and financial Chums
against extending all- aid to the government,
until their acts became so audacious as to
arouse the indignation of the peeple, and attract
to these same leaders the odium of sympathisers
with traitors, while the fiery threats of the
mob in kndre than one instance intimidated
those who could not . be convinced, and forced
others, who avowed their sympathy for the
rebels, Into at least a. tacit support of the gov
These historical facts' prove, that the burden
and the support of the war mainly rest on the
policy adopted by the Republican party, and had
that policy been permitted freely to demon
strate itself in results, the end of the rebellion
would have been arrived at four months ago,
and the peace of the country been established
now as fairly as ever. If the policy . of the Re
publican party, first enunciated in Congress, on
the subject of armed resistance to the rebellion
had Wen adopted by that body—if James Bu
chanan, understanding ati he did; the extent of
the rebellion, and, knowing as he did, the in
terest of the leaders; had used the power con
ferred on him by his perogatives of office, the
rebellion would have been crushed out before he left the
Presidential mansion one year ago.
But in all these instances, the object of the
Democratioparty has been to break down the Re
publican organisation of the country. When
Booth Carolina raised the banner of revolt, and
the other states now in retellion, sternly fol•
lowed her example, the leaders of the Republi
can party saw lathe movement, andiannounced
the fact, that the object was not only the dis
rupture of the American Union, buZ that it
contemplated the annihilation of civil and re
ligious liberty on this hemisphere. On these
two points the Republican party based its oppo
sition to the rebellion. They opposed the
establishment of a Confederacy with slavery for
its basis, because such an organization was cal
culated to affectevery principle or development
for Social and political prosperity. On the
other hand, the Democratic party maintained.
that the rebels had not only the rtgoros*
sion, bat that they had the cause for revdit,
and that'Whataier Eiosition the traitors:Might
assume, the right of revolution was . sacredly
theirs, to be 'exercised whenever they deemed
it essential for their good, and that in main
taining such a right, they were worthy the
applause of all who valued the inalienable
right of self-government.
At the organization of rebellion, such were
the positions of the Republican and Democratic
parties. When the war had been waged for
six months, those pOiltions were unchanged,
and whenever (Hamster .overtook our armies,
the sympathy of dough face Democrats showed.

Through all the opposition in the free states—
with the clamors of the secret-traitors In'Oon-
green-with a press blindly attached to the
principle that the enslavement of one race
was the highest end which another could
accomplish through the . Influence of De•
Mocracy--with the prejudices ' which such
assumptions would create in the public mind,
it became the duty of the Republican masses
alone to combat. And they did combat with
it, until revolution achieved its end . in the free
states, and rebellion in the slave states was so

extent. History will prove that'the conspiracy
of the slave holder was emended by the sym
pathy of Democratic leaders ; and while the
first struggled for dominion over soil and souls,
the others expected only the reward of office as
their loaves and fishes. • '
Such has been and such is the position of
parties in this contest.

ously applaud the stratagem which
avoid the butchery of whole armies of 'rebels,
we must not relent io any rigor calculated to
bring the leading: traitors and instigators of
rebeliion to the death penalty. The leaders of
this rebellion most not be suffered to survive,
its suppression. To arrest its fury, means to
hang every leader, from the liar, Jeff. Davis,
to the thief, John B. Floyd. If these wretches
are allowed to escape—if justice in some shape,
whether it is as a bullet or a halter, fails to
overtake these fiends, and they are allowed to
go before the people of other clime*, with their
falsehoods, in their audacity and their reckless
desi, this goirertithenewill be guilty - of a deri
fiction in its duty to other governments, which
the severest reprehension would fail to punish.
We owe it to the peace of the world—we owe
it to the purity of government and tie dignity
of mankind, each invelving aprinciple which
no nation can disregard with impunity, to
bring those who concocted' and those who led,
the rebellion, to a death penalty such as will
vindicate the law, preserve the peace of the
country, and forevei enema the power of ''the
national authority. When strategy can be
made productive of Such . re - stilts, - Modality,
and policy will both applaud its adoption.

under Commander Gordon, I shifted my flag
from the first named vessel to the Pawnee, and
organized another squadron of light vessels,
embracing the four regular gunboat;—the Ot
tawa Henrea, Pembina and Huron, with the
Isaac Smith and Ellen, under Lieutenant-Corn
mauling Stevens, to prucedd withouit delay to
the mouth of the St. Johns river, and cross, if
possible, its difficult and shallow bar, shell the
forts, if still held, and push on toJacksonville--
indeed, to go as far as Pilatka, eighty miles
beyond, to reconnoitre and capture the river
steamers. This expedition was to be accompar
nied by the armed launches and cutters of the
Wabash, under Lieutenants Irwin and Barnes,
and by a light draft transport with the Seventh'
New Hampshire regiment.
After arranging with Brigadier General
Wright our joint occupation of the Florida
and Georgia coasts, including the mansion and
grounds of Dungennee, on the Cumberland'
Island—originally the property of the revolu
tionary hero and patriot, General Greene, and
still owned by his descendants--and leaving
Commander Percival Drayton in charge of the
naval force, I rejoined this ship, waiting for me
off Fernandina, and proceeded with her to St.
Johns, arriving there on the 9th.
The gun boats had not been able to cross th e
bar, but expected to do so the next day—the
Ellen only getting in that evening. As at Nas
sau, which was visited by Lieutenant Com
manding Stevens, en his way down, the forts
seemed abandoned. There being no probability I
that the Huron could enter, I despatched her
off St. Augustine, where I followed her, ar- '
riving on the 11th. I immediately sent on I
shore Commander C. R. P. Rodgers, with a flag'
of truce, having reason to believe that if there'
were ny people on this coast likely to remain
in their houses it would be at St. Augustine. I'

read with satisfaction.
