R ednesday Afternoon, July 2,1862,
We know of no other word more appropriate
for the heading of a paragraph introducing the
following letter from the Hon. Henry D.
Moore, State Treasurer. The writer, whoever
he may be, has done a noble act, whether be
designed that his tender of $l,OOO should go to
the relief of the defenders of the Union con
tributed by Pennsylvania, or whether he thus
seeks to liquidate an old indebtedness to the
commt nwealth, of which there is no record in
the accounting offices of the state. We trust
that this public acknowledgment of the receipt
of the sum referred to, will add to the pleasure
which the performance of this act of justice
must be to its author:
TEBASURY DER/LET/MT OS PENNSYLVANIA,
Harrisburg, July 1, 1862.
I received an anonymous letter to-day,post
marked " New York, which reads as follows:
" Pass the enclosed to the credit of your noble patriotic
State: 'tis her due." This letter contained a $l,OOO
United States freasuiy note of the legal tender
issue. Whether this thousand dollars came from
one who considered himself indebted that much
to the State, or whether it was sent as a patriotic
gift, I am unable to say ; but in either case, it is
a compliment to our good old Commonwealth,
and I know of no other manner in which 1 can
acknowledge its receipt to my unknown corres
pondent, than by a public announcement of the
same. Yours, &c.,

Ous SEGILAI NEIGHBORS must have had anoth
er attack of the "inflamatory," when they
concocted their "Baltimore Correspondence."
Beaten in a very small enterprise, and cha
grined that they were compelled to publish
f acts which had appeared in the TBLIGHAPH
twenty-four hours before, they manufactured a
letter purporting to have been written in Balti
more, that they might again indulge their ly
ing prJpensity and give the government a stab.
The idea held forth by the letter in the Patriot,
that Baltimore is as distiuguirhed for its loyal
ty as any other city in the Union, seems to
have been derived from the fact that its wo
men spit into the faces of Union men, and its
mobs murder, d - northern troops while passing
through that city on their way to the defence
of the national capital. When the pimps who
hang around the Patriot office desire to concoct
another "Baltimore Correspondence," it would
be well for them to be more careful of their
dates and circumstances, so as to give some
color of genuiuess to their efforts. And n hen
the proprietors of the Patriot suffer their sloth
to fall behind the indus.ry of other people,
they should be content with their case and not
disgust the public by the tame explanation
that the news was "contraband." We publish
in our morning edition a full statement of the
cause which induced the imprisonment of Mr.
Fulton. It was not for the publication of any
news, but for the violation of the confidence re
posed in him by the War Department. Will
the Patriot try another dodge to-morrow 4. We
would not be surprised to see it announce a
special correspondent from the rebel capital,
wherever that locality may now have a geo
graphical existence, because it has friends in
rebeldom who would gladly communicate with
their dough free friends through the columns
of the Patriot.
PRESIDENT LINCOLI4'S emancipation policy Is
gaining favor every day among the people
really interested in its objects, and the border
states, however politicians attempt to disguise
the fact, are in favor of it. Every man with
common sense must see , that slave property is
bound to depreciate, whether the confederacy
becomes, a success, or whether it goes to ruin,
which is now certaht. The capital invested in
negroes has already depreciated almost one
half ; and the depreciation will continue until
investment in human flesh becomes as worth
less as stock in an air line to the moon. Those
who oppose emancipation are those who defend
slavery for the political• power with which it
clothes the south, and such as these are mainly
in the rebel army. The limited number of those,
who defend and persist in perpetuating slavery
with all its political evils and social corrup
tions, are fast giving envy to their prejudices,
by taking up arms with the common traitors,
or they are yielding to obey force of public
opinion on the subject, and profess to regard
emancipation as one of the necessities of the
OUT of the 60,000 men sent forth by Indiana
to assist in crushing out the rebellion, it is es
timated that 6,000 have been already lost in
battle, and by casualties and disease. Probably
half as many more, who yet remain in the
service, are permanently disabled by the hard
ships and exposures of military life, and will
ultimately have to be discharged. In calcula
lating the terrible responsibilities of the fathers
of the rebellion, all this must be added to the
Theason IN Canna Conarr.—The Democrats
(so-called) of Chester county held a meeting at
West Chester on Monday, for the purpose of
electing delegates to the (so called) Democratic
State Convention. Speeches were made against
the administration, the wir and emancipation,
and against paying the war taxes. If Fort
Warren or some of the other secure forts of the
country do not have additions to their inmates
shortly, they will be cheated out of their just
We have frequently alluded to the feel that
the spirit in which the position of certain pro
minent politicians in this state is maintained,
indicates more than a desire to re-organize what
was once a powerful political organization.—
These Democratic leaders are not merely anxious
to r eorganize the Democratic party, for the
purpose, as a political body, of contending with
treason, and through the influence of certain
principles, seek the correction of the evils
which first prompted the south to revolt. If
this was the object in seeking such a re-organi.
nation, we might possibly discover some good
in the movement, and for the benefit of the
Union, we might be induced to approve such a
purpose. But those who seek a revival of the
Democratic party are as much opposed to the
administration of Abraham Lincoln as Davis
and all his followers, and they seek power fer
the very same purposes for which the south
armed its masses. The achievement of mere
local success, is not the only end, either, 'of the
revival of Democracy, and the people will have
discovered this fact, the moment they lend
themselves to the machinations of the men
now boasting of their conservatism and devo
tion to the Constitution. Let the loyal states
elect a majority of Congressmen opposed politi
cally to the administration of Abraham Lincoln,
and the Congress which they must compose
would Signalize its first act by depriving that
administration of the means to carry. on the
wAr for the Union. Let a Congress of Demo
crats be organized, let the people place the le
gislative power of the country in the hands of
such men as Vallandigfiam of Ohio, Biddle of
Pennsylvania, Voorhees of Indiana, and we
have no doubt that the war will at once be
ended—ended to the disgrace of the' country,
and the humiliation of the national authority.
On these points, the people of Pennsylvania,
we think, need no further developments to
convince them of the necessity of meeting and
counteracting the efforts of the leaders of
mocracy to re-organize that party. It rests
entirely with the people to decide whether
such an organization shall be effected by such
men, and while thus alluding to the men at
tempting this organization, lhe question as to
their antecedents suggests itself. Who are the
men thus attempting to revive the rotten
carcass of a rotten party, and breathe into its
palsied limbs the breath of life ? Every man
of them has in some shape attempted to
cripple the efforts of the national adminis
tration. They have attempted to do this in
Congress, and through the columns of the
newspapers which they have been able to con
They first decried enlistment as a vio
lation of the Constitution, because it sought to
coulee men from the exercise of their sovereign
rights. They next denounced taxation, be
cause it asked a. portion of the great resources
of the American people to preserve the Ameri
can Union. Having failed in these efforts, and
seeing that our armies are crowded with the
best men in the land, and that taxation is de
manded by the people as the fairest way, to
equalise the burden of the war, the same men
adopt a stale trick to reorganize the Demo
party, on the plea that its revival will
add to the strengthof the government by pro
viding additional guards against corruption and
malfeasance in offic'e. Heaven protect the rni
rity of the government when such guards be
come necessary for its preservation !
We must not only meet, but we must coun
teract the influence of this conspiracy and at
tempt at rebellion in the north = because we
hold that every man is guilty of treason who
voluntarily and willingly, after the facts are
known to him, enters a political organiza
tion whose only purpose is to embarrass the
government. Every sane man must understand
the fact that this is the only object of the re
organization of the Democratic party. The men
who seek such a consumation are the old enemies of
the, Union, who, in the lead of Breckenridge, sought
to give force to that enmity. Let this fact constant
ly be kept before the people. And let it be re
membered that while we battle against these lo-
cal political conspirators, we are also nobly strug
gling against that other great conspiracy which
aims at the entire destruction of the govern
RICHMOND AND CHARLESTON both, the two
great centers of rebellion, will be in the pos
session of the federal troops em many days.—
Blow but sure, are the advances on each. The
surrender of Richmond is as certain as any fu
ture event. McClellan's tactics may lack celer
ity, but they never fail of the certain result.
With or without the desired reinforcements, at
tacked by dashing columns, or approaching by
slow parallels and unmolested, the possession of
Richmond is a foregone conclusion to General
Mee fella n.
So of Charleston. It is not easily taken by
direct assault, either from land or water. The
channel approaches are difficult and require
skillful pilotage or slow feeling the way by
soundings. But there is not this afternoon,
in the city of Charleston, a head so "full of
foolish dreams" as to doubt the certain surren
der of the city. Whether it be to-day, to-mor
row, or even a week hence, may serve as a
point for discretion. But the our-coma--the
occupation of the city and the possession of the
forts by the United States, is not doubtful to
anyone having eyes to see and brains to com
prehend. " Slow but sure," as the mills grind;
the result is doubtful to no mortal forecast.
"And then ?" We do not say that then the
war is ended. Fools and madmen may attempt
to protract it by guerrilla bands, and miscella
neous predatory warfare. That, however, is
not war, but simply land piracy. Until such
pirates are suppressed, it may be said the war
is not over. But there is a short way of deal
ing with ardent soldiers of this sort. They are
entitled to no soldierly consideration as priso
ners ; the cord and the bough, or quickeryet,
the bullet, can settle terms of peace with such
There are persons who imagine that a system
of guerrilla warfare can be maintained for years,
and that meantime the peace of the whole

lime and again, vast hordes of rebels moved
up in solid columns upon our troops, but our
regular batteries as often mowed them down
in 'a most deatruotive manner. Steady dis
chArges of shell, grape and canister in regular
salvos seemed to sweep down whole companies.
As soon as confusion in the rebel ranks was
apparent, General Porter ordered General
Meagher's Irish Brigade to charge bayonets,
which they did in the most gallant and heroic
style, bare-headed, in their shirt sleeves, owe-

This charge had an excellent effect. The reb

General Porter was preparing to move upon

when the enemy again advanced steadily,
Now the Pennsylvanians gave them the bene

havoc. Indeed, the slaughter upon other fields
during this war has never been anything to
compare to this. The, rebels staggered under
their losses, and our forces were advancing
steadily upon them, drivingthem back at every
point, when a staff officer rode up with an or
der from the commander-in-chief to - Gen. Por
ter; directing him to fall back with his com
mand, and cross the Cbickahominy.
The order was executed in fine style, and our
troops did not miss a man, the enemy being
too, severely punished , to follow us closely.
The only difficulty was with the Pennsylvania
Reserves and Meagher's Irishmen—their com
manders exerting all their powers to induce
these brave men to cease firing. They saw the
advantages gained by hard fighting, and they
were anxious to follow up the success.
All the troops must be praised for heroic gal

especial notice. General Sykes, the lawented

with almost inconceivable courage, successful

Fits John Porter, sorely pressed, crossed
to the right, or western side of the Chick

his left, McClellan, with much. severe fighting,
had penetrated and passed through White-Oak
Swamp, with 40,000 men and 100 pieces of ar
tillery, to a secure and advantageous position,
and had subsequently cut through a line of com
