THE COUNTY RELIEF FUND
The faith of every county in this state was
pledged to support the families of those who
are now in the army, fighting the battles of the
Union. The honor of the commonwealth of
Pennsylvania is at stake in the manner by
which this faith is vindicated, and her faith, as
well as that of each county, is equally vested
in the extent of the generous support which the
helpless families of our soldiers are to receive.
These pledges were repeated by Gov. Curtin to
every regiment before they departed from their
homes. They wera assured in the thrilling
words of the Executive, that the families of the
soldiers became the charge of the state and its
different counties, the moment each husband
and father enlisted under the flag of the coun
try. They were encouraged to march forth,
and they were animated with daring to meet
the enemies of the Union and Constitution, by
the assurance that whatever result might accrue
to them as individuals, the government and
people for whom they battled and died, would
never desert the families made defenceless and
orphaned by the absence of their natural pro
tectors. These pledges have been so far faith
fully redeemed. Every county in the state has
contributed liberally to these purposes. Appro
priations have teen promptly made and paid,
but in many cases, the fact that a single pay
ment has keen made for this purpse, seems
to be regarded as the full discharge of the first
obligation. In this respect, Dauphin county
has liberally emulated the munificence of our
richer neighbors ; but these appropriations have
been exhausted, and still tho wives and chil
dren of the soldiers want. They want the com
mon necessaries of life. They want food and
clothing, The mother pleads with her help
less children for shelter and sustenance. The
old and infirm, whose support was derived from
hands and hearts that are new engaged in the
service of the county, humbly ask that coun
try to sustain their tottering steps, and to give
that relief which was pledged to them as they
gave up their sons and protectors to swell the
armies of the nation.
This is a serious subject ; too serious for the
multiplication of words. As it concerns Dauphin
county, it has become of the most urgent conse
quence, and we are induced to appeal to those
having the power to make the necessary appro
priation by some of our most respectable citi
zens, under whose observation much suffering
has been developed among the families of absent
soldiers. The fact is that there are many such
families in actual want; suffering for the common
necessaries of living. The Commissioners of
Dauphin County have not the uncontrolled
power to relieve this suffering. They can of
course appropriate money, but the question may
arise hereafter with the Auditors whether such
appropriation was legal, and thus perhaps cast
the burden of th support on the individual is
Commissioners instead of the people of the
county. Therefore we suggest that tie Grand
Jury of the present session, recommend, in the
usual report, the appropriation of a certain sum
of money to meet the wants of hese families.
By this recommendation, the Commissioners
would be protected, the ends of justice and
charity subserved, and many a worthy family
seoured from want and suffering. We tender
this suggestion on the good faith of some of our
largest tax payers, who desire to join this offi
cial to their own individual contributions for
the support of the families of the soldiers, as a
fitting tribute of Dauphin county to the great
Cause in which the county is now engaged.
A NEW CONSTRUCTION OF BENEFICIAL
We have lately been orally and verbally in
formed, that a very interesting discussion is
now being develored in certain of the Beneficial
Societies of Pennsylvania, growing out of issues
involved in the absence of members of such
societies, who are engaged in the war. The
point at issue is, whether a member of any
beneficial society, who has become such as a car
penter, machinist, printer, shoemaker, tailor,
or as being engaged in tang of the mechanical
or professional pursuits, can claim acid draw
benefits, if he is maimed or sickened in conse
quence of wounds received or exposure had in
the service as a soldier. With many of our
beneficial societies, the payment of a benefit
depends entirely upon the manner in which
the supposed beneficiary was rendered help
less If be become a member of a society as a
carpenter, he could not claim a benefit if he was
disabled as a sailor. Such at least is our im
pression of the manner in which the dispensa
tions of these societies are regulated. Wheth
er this is just or not, is of course for such mem
bers to decide among themselves, as long as
they can manage to keep from other tribunals
for the adjustment of their affairs. But it
strikes us that there Is something unjust in the
attempt to debar a soldier from the benefits of
any society to which he may have been attach
ed and contributed before he entered the service
of his country. If those who remain at home,
shielded from danger and death, can deliber
ately disfranchise those who are absent in the
service of their country, the charity and hu
manity and brotherly love are supposed to an
imate all the actions of such societies, become
of that sordid nature which degrades the trans
actions of common men. The service which a
man renders his country, is voluntary in one
sense, yet In another it is of the most urgent
and necessary character. In the present in
stance a man volunteers in obedience to a stern
necessity. He yields to a summons in the re
fugal of which he runs the rish of loosing his
manhood and citizenship. Shall he, then,
forfeit all his individual rights to bounties
which he assisted In creating by his individual
contributions, because he went forth to the
service of his country?
This is a question, the discussion of which
may be exclusively claimed by the societies in
which it arose. And yet its effects, if these so
cieties.resolve to construe their benefi is so as to
cut off all who are disabled in battle, will be
felt by those outside of such societies, until
whole communities become involved in the
issue. The permanency and respectability of
such societies depend upon the righteous deci
sion of this question, so as to continue these
benefits to all such members who may become
disabled, whether it is in the pursuit of their
ordinary professions or in the service of their
ONE OE THE LAST DODGES OE DEMOCRACY was
attempted this morning by the Patriot, when it
sought to compare the expenses of the first
year of the present with the last year of the
past national adMinistration. Its defence of the
Buchanan dynasty is tolerable, when it is re
membered that the people of this city patiently
submit to its repeated defences of the traitor
cause. But its attempt at misrepresentation
on the subject of the expenses of the last year
of the Buchanan misrule, is too bold and un
blushing to rebuke. The millions which it has
cost the government to purchase arms, recon
struct navies, erect forts and arsenals, and
manufacture the necessary munitions of war,
were the direct result of the Buchanan adminis
tration. That administration developed the
treason which the slaveholders' rebellion was
organized to support. That administration
winked at the transfer of arms and the dis
mantling of. forts and arsenals. That adminis
tration engaged in plans to depress the publio
credit and destroy the national resources. That
administration sought to entangle the country
in foreign alliances, that the traitors might the
more easily subvert the federal authority. That
administration, its upholders and defenders, are
directly and clearly responsible, not only for
the treasure that has been and will be expended
in this contest, but James Buchanan and those
who defend him, are as justly charge thle with
the blood that has been shed to suppress re
bellion, as if their hands were crimson with its
It is a shallow trick to attempt to force the
responsibility of the financial expense and the
sacrifice of life and property in this rebellion,
from the old locofoco to the Republican party.
Every preparation for that rebellion was made
under the eye and with the encouragement of
a Democratic administration. Its leaders in the
south and its apologists in the north are Demo
crate, Its calculations of success were based
on the aid it anticipated from the Democracy
of the free states. Its hopes of final escape for
those who now see only defect for their plans,
are centered in the success which the Democra
cy are struggling to achieve. These are the
encouragements which have animated the
leaders of the slaveholders' rebellion. These
are the purposes which have made traitors of
the leaders of the Democratic party in the free
states. These are the facts and the explanation
of the expenses of the last and present adminis
tration, and yet the Patriot seeks to. draw a
parallel in order to prove that the money ex
pended to crush a rebellion in which it partici
pated until it was forced into loyalty by the
threats of the people, is the evidence of the
extravagance of a Republican administration.
The thief who robs a hen roost might as sensi
bly plead the fact of the loss of a man's poul
!try, as the evidence of his sleepy carelessness,
because he was not on hand to capture the per
loiner of hie property. Such are the arguments
by which the Democracy hope to succeed in the
future political campaigns of Pennsylvania.
They hope to hide their share in the develop
ment of the rebellion—to conceal the money
which was filched from the treasury by a Dem
ocratic administration to arm rebellion, and
use the fact that millions were necessarily ex
pended to crush out that which Democracy
created, to prove the extravagance of the Re
publican party. it was no crime to rob the
state in defer:Km of a heresy; but a most culpa
ble wrong and imposition to drain the treasury
to maintain the authority of the government
and vindicate the nationality of the country.
Such are the sophistries with which locofocoism
WHERE WILL REBEL LEADERS seek safety in
flight ? This is a question which is becoming
very common among those who entertain a se
cret solicitude for the ultimate success of the
rebellion, and who, while they are convinced
that the present attempt to destroy the Union
must prove a failure, still cling to the convic
tion that such destruction will eventually be
accomplished. The leaders of the rebellion—
the Devises, Breckenridges, Floyds, Beaure
gards, and their equal associates, are doubtless
even now arranging for their escape, and their
plans for this purpose are, we are certain, as
well known to their friends in the loyal states,
as were their first plans for rebellion. We ven
ture the assertion, that James .Buchanuan,
William Bigler, the Patriot people, or any of
those who so ardently defended the right of the
retell of the south to revolutionize for the
vindication of their institution—that any of
these gentlemen sympathisers could with cer
tainty point to the locality to which these lead
era will fly for safety. Our reference to such
localities is only based on conjecture, and there
fore we must wait for time to verify our predic
tion on this subject. But for the pr= sent we
have a notion that the leading traitors will seek
safety in Mexico, in the territory bordering. on
Texas, and that Texas itself will shortly become
the retreat of all the villains, assassins, thieves
and liars, which southern Democracy and the
system of southern slave-holding have been
breeding for the last thirty. years. These lead
ers will not venture their presence in any
of the countries of Europe, simply be
cause they have already learned that there is
no recognition for such wretches as they have
proven themselves to be, in any of the civilized
lands of the old world. Unlike the men of Ire
land, who on several occasion gallantly strug
gled for their ' nationality and independence ;
unlike the heroes , of France, mho have so often
permilithanict (Daft gelt.graplj,, luestrav 'afternoon, 24irit 29, 1862
indiscreetly sought a change in their govern
ment, and when they imagined they had
achieved freedom, found themselves relapsing
into a tyranny worse than that to escape which
they waded through lakes of blood ; unlike the
Hungarian or Italian, each battling for freedom;
these southern traitors as the representatives of
a cause involving as its strongest principle the
right to enslave a human being, will find no
resting place, save where anarchy and misrule
prevail. They will be rejected from every land
that is devoted to civilizationin its truest sense.
They can hope for no refuge, save where rebel
lion is ever in the ascendent. Hence, we are
of the opinion, that poor Mexico is to be cursed
with these double dyed villains, and that for a
few years to come, that country will be made
the scene of excesses, passion and desolation.
The rebel leaders must seek a refuge in some
locality. They will not be permitted to remain
within the reach of the power of the federal
government. This fact these men understand,
and hence they will seek a country where gov
ernment is less secure than in any of the lands
of the world, and where they can riot and rob
at will and pleasure.
Some whisky-loving defender of dissipated
army officers proposes, it is said, to checkmate
the inquiry into the habits of some of these offi
cers by offering a resolution to ascertain how
many Representatives and Senators have been
intoxicated duting the session. We do not
believe any member will peril his political pros
pects so rashly.

The commission on ordnance and ordnance

contracts, and considerably curtailed those for
the manufacture of arms in the United States.
The ordnance office has issued proposals for
manufacturing within one year Springfield

with revolvers, carbines, sabre swords and scab
bards. The department reserves to itself the
right to reject any bid, and will consider none
made through any agent, broker or party other

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Mr. BLAIR, (Va.) enquired of Mr. Potter on
what authority be yesterday predicated his
charge of disloyalty against Judge Potts, of
Northampton county, Va.
Mr. Barren replied, on an address of Judge
Potts to the Virginia legislature, at Richmond.
the address was now read in which Judge Potts
refers to the action of the legislature to depose
him without giving him an opportunity for de
fence. The consummation of this would mani
festly be unjust. He could only plead not
guilty of disloyalty to the South, and doulted
not that he could triumphantly vindicate him
self from every charge his enemies and per
steutors might bring against him. He pro
tested against being removed from office by
extra constitutional means.
The House then resumed the consideration of
the report of the Select Committe on Govern
Mr. ROSCOE CONILLING s .id he had voted
against raising this committee. It seemed it
would be honest or eminent, that it would he
suitable to clothe them with the unheard of
power asked for on that occasion. It seemed
unfit to constitute an advisory board to ,uper
vise ques.ions of integrity relating to every
man engaged in the ad minisiration of Depart
ment affairs. It seemed to him that a
to take into consideration
the honesty or fraud of all future contracts to
be entered into with any Department of the
Government, brought with it grave ob
jections and found little argument in
its favor. Experience has demonstrated
that every objection then made had been abun
dantly sustained by the conduct of the commit
tee, which had done a grave and irreparable
injustice, both to individuals and classes.—
Tuese, as well as the nation, have suffered by
the declarations of the committee. As this
committee was a pioneer experiment and bad
turned out badly, they could dispense with it.
The gen de man from Massachusetts, (Mr. Dawes,)
had said that there was undoubted evidence of
fraud, well nigh in a single year as much as the
current expenditures of the government during
the administration which the people burled
from power because of its corruption. Now,
Mr. CoNsmin remarked, if any man was war
ranted in making that statement it would jus
tify the people in resorting to anything but
revolution to redress the wrong. These poison.
ed arrows feathered by the franking privilege
were shot far and wide among the loyal States
of the republic. Like other remarks and state
ments the gentleman (W. Dawes,) had made,
however, deliberately prepared this was one

They have been taken with arms in their
hands fighting to overthrow our Republican
form of Government. The precious blood of
the young men who have fallen in this war,
fighting under the star spangled banner, has
been shed by them, and others like them. All
over the land are homes made desolate by them.
They should be treated with humanity—as we
treat convicts in the penitentiary and vagrants
in our warehouses. But the fact is, they ap
pear to be received at Columbus with distin
guished consideration. They are permitted to
visit the town, and swell about the hotels,
where they write themselves down as of the
Confederate States Arm. They - prowl about
the bar rooms, drink the mean whisky, for
which Columbus is famous, and condescend
to make acquaintance among the poor white
trash of the north who fawn upon them.
They order new Confederate uniforms, and talk
treason publicly, as rampantly as if in Rich
mond. Foolish women, crack-brained on the
subject of "the South," are permitted to min
ister to them, not to wait on the sick or to
comfort the afflicted, but to encourage them to
persevere and "whip the Yanks." They are
told that the war was brought on by. " Aboli
tionists," and that there is a "reaction,"
which will soon place the Government in the
attitude of a suppliant at the feet of rebellion.
