AI THE ONION-THE COI% S .11113TION-AND THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW. HARRISBURG, PA. Friday Morning, March 21,1862. 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 the s outh can Rmeibly be of those who are al- Naming the eagles and establishing the author ot the federal government among the states in rebellion. 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 ernment. ' 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. itself in open applause of treason, while these same Democratic leader's rejoioid in the hour of our dismay, and exultingly pointed* to disas ter as the corroboration of their own predic tions. 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 far crushed as to place it biyond the power : of mischief every act of the Republican party has been an effort ti) rolulitait4 the' authority Of the federal power.Al . Vet . ? I r ticiide — avow 4 ed by the Republican leaders, has for its .object • the preservaticin of the Pitace and' the - iniurhig lof the prosperity of the Union. In this war, we repeat, the Republican masses have been.,com pelled to revolutionize in thaired 'While they . were battling "against rebellfon the slave states, and whatever evil Democratic party has heretofore worked, that which will be fast ened on Democratic leaders by the confession of traitors, will far exceed it in enormity and 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. Tam waxer which saves life by the strata . gem of the leader of an army, is a suhlime tribute to the humanity of the age. On this account we moat sincerely desire that there Will be no great encounter such as will 'send a thrill of horror through the hoints of the North, when the bloody details reach their hearths and their altars. If we can win the fight by stratagem, the more credit to oar skill and perseverance. If we can save the effusion, of great quantities of blood, the sooner with the accrimony of the contest be absorbed in` future generous business and politicatcompell time, and the sooner will the memory of the antagonism of the' hour -die out in theldend-, ships and confidences that ivill'Aereafter'fitimak in glory on the laUd;', apeAyl can•be commanded, end whife we can generj ipennopiro — a - nia 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. Tan WILD WAGON= or MI , Aintenuares, 1 patriotic poetical production from the prolifi pen of T. Buchanan Reed, was - read in th House of Representatives last evening, b y . tl: eminent American tragedian and elocutionis James E. Murdoch. The House was fi lled iii a brilliant, critical and ; fashionable auoience whose preienee we regarded as at once atribnt to the author and the reader of the Wild Wag over of the Alleghenies. The poem is 'founded o the incidents and fade ' Which abound - in 'on Revolutionary history,while the scenes seleo by the wrlterlii which to layhis plot and brin out his charactera, are thoseirhith": have be . made immortal by the struggles and vie ~. her ries of Washington, Wayne, Lifaiette4o their compeers. They embrace the . torture suffering and wild suepetistf of Valley Forg " with the battle, slaughter and Tdefeat Brandywine. •Among-and out , of these, ell the aid of a most prolific and brilliant poeti fancy, Mr. Reed has woven a • poem 'of t highest order,.on which he can well rest: i I) fame, aliewly SO extensiVnand so.enviable, we doubt if the Wilt Wagoner of the Alkg I ever would have been as successful as it ie,'b it failed to receive the elocutionary touches the tongue of Mr. Murdoch.

In the reading of this poem, Mr. Ilieffiloch, has been deservedly successful.

FLAG Saxe WABASH, Off St. Augustine Fla., Me.rch 13,1862. . . Sm:—Haviog on the 4th despatched a' di vision of my force to bold Brunswick, consist ing of the Mohican, Pocahontas and Potomska, 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' enclose Commander Rodgers' most interesting report, which, I am sure, the department will read with satisfaction. The American flag is flying once more over I that old city, raised by the hands of its own people, who resisted the appeals, threats and falsehoods of their leaders, though compelled to witness the carrying off of their sons in the ranks of the flying enemy. This gives tut pos session of a second national fort of strength and importance. Since writing the above, I have received by the Isaac Smith, a report from Lieutenant Com manding Stevens, of bis operations in the St. John's river, . giving details of great interest L learn with regret of acts of vandalism on the part of the rebel commanders, if not thcfpoople, in setting_ fire to vast quantities of lumber, and the saw-mills in that region, owned by North ern men, supposed to have Lam:sympathies. In all this varied and difficult servioe--hav ing to contend with surf, shores, dangerous bars and inland navigation, in an enemy's country—l think it due to the officers and men under my command to say that they have on: all occasions di-played great spirit and ability, fully coming up to my requirements and. ex pectations.
