DODGING THEIR PIiRPOSES.
Immediately after the adjournment of the
dough-face convention which disgraced Inde
pendence Day by its proceedings, in this city,
we made a statement to the effect that in the
committee which passed the treasonable reso
lutions adopted by that conclave, a proposi
tion was discussed as to the policy of counsel
ling the people to repudiate the taxation about
to be levied, and refuse to receive the notes of
the government as a medium of circulation.
When we made that statement, we did not ex
pect to have it corroborated by those who
joined in the attempt to force that recommend
ation through the said committee on resolu
tions, because that would be expecting too
much from those whose political desperation
led them into so grave an error. Yet it is
nevertheless true. The proposition was made
and discussed, as to the policy of incorporating
a resolution recommending a repudiation of the
war debt, and so high was that debate, that
those who were scattered over the side-walk in
the rear of the capitol, could distinctly hear
the voice of a speaker defending the suggestion,
urging it as a policy purely Democratic, and
endeavoring by all the force of his eloquence
to obtain its recognition and adoption by the
WLen we made the first statement on this
subject, we did not expect to have it corrobo
rated by any single member of the dough-face
committee on resolutions ; because, as we
have already declared, that would have
been expecting too much from those thus
counciling for the repudiation of an honestly
contracted and honorably incurred indebtedness.
If the doligh-face press,and the dough-face com
mittee before which this proposition was dis
cussed, did not lie on the subject, they would
be false to their antecedents, and recreant to the
policy which governs them all in their attitude
towards the men who are struggling with re
bellion. From the beginning of the war every
dough-face mouth in the land has been filled
with lies in, reference to its causes or in descrip
tion of its effects. Every member of that party
will continue to lie—lie in the face of man and
beneath high Heaven—lie desperately and de
signedly, that the war for the Union may be
swayed for the defence of slavery, and that on
the ruins and distress created and distributed
throughout the land,the dough-face may again
be able to rear his foul organization, and once
more subject every interest, political, social and
industrial, to the dictation and abuse of the slave
power. And yet all this cannot save them from
the defeat whioh is reserved for them by the
loyal men of Pennsylvania, because we intend
KEEP IT &roux TEE PEOPLE, That in the awash
committee which brought forth the treasonable real
lutions of the dough face State Convention of the 4th
instant, the proposition was deliberately made and
discoursed, of recommending to the people of Penn
sylvania, the repudiation of the war debt, and the
refusal of the Treasurg notes of the government. This
proposition was made with a view to gain votes on the
plea that its adoption would relieve the people from
Let the men who are fighting the battles of
the country ponder this recommendation. It
was made at the very time that the Richmond
Examiner was proprosing the starvation of M' Clei
lmen army by cutting off his supplies. It was
doubtless designed to be a part Of that plan, by
inducing the people of the north to refuse all
pecuniary aid to the government, and thus
end the war in the starvation of the Union
forces. However much this statement may be
denied, we repeat it, and warn the people in
time, to beware of the trap laid for thum in the
platform of the late dough-face state conyen
The Lancaster Evening Express indulges in
some very forcible language while referring to
the criticism which has been indulged in by the
press of the country, at the expense of the War
Department. So far as the energy of Gen.
Cameron is concerned, the Express is correct,
but we beg leave to differ with it on the sub
ject of the justness of the charges daily heaped
on Secretary Stanton. A careful examination
will prove to the Express that the men who de
nounce Stanton for failing to keep the army of
the Potomac reinforced, also assailed Gen. Cam-
MEI for insisting on keeping a large force
in the field, with the arms and equipments
at the command of the War Department,
adequate to its wants. The force of the Expreas
is in the strength of its language in doing pu
ttee to Gen. Cameron. It is as follows:
If there has been any mistake of serious
magnitude in that department under Mr. Stan
ton's administration, it has been, in our judg
ment, the suspension of recruiting for the
army, at a time when as many men could have
been got as the Government could possibly
use in a epeedy , suppression of the rebellion
and, although no special partizan of Mr. Cam
eron, we are free to say that, had he remained
at the head- of the War Department, there
would have been no lack of troops now that
they are wanted. Mr. Cameron displayed an
energy in organizing an immense army in a
short time which is without parallel in the
world's history ; and we feel assured that, had
he remained in charge of the War Office, what.
ever other errors he might have committed,
the one now charged on the present incumbent,
and apparently not without cause, would never
have been of the number.
THE NEW 43011"—WILL DRAFTING BE
COME NECESSARY t
The responses to the new call are brightening.
In Pennsylvania, the call to arms has produced
the greatest enthusiasm, if we may judge by
the tone of our exchanges from all parts of the
state, and the preparations for enlistments
which such journals describe and announce.—
Notwithstanding the call demands a larger
term of service than it is likely that the war
will be proloriged—and however disastrous and
exhausting would be the continuation of the
struggle for three years, we believe that the
full quota assigned to Pennsylvania will be
made up without any very great delay.
The New England States all promise their
quota at an early day. Drafting was talked of
in New York, but the State Department an
nounces that this will not be required. In the
Western States, the call was at first very coolly
received, but a better feeling is already mani
fested. Governor Tod expresses himself grati
fied with the responses in his State, and is con
fident that as soon as the system adopted is
put into execution, the first instalment of
twenty-two regiments will be rapidly tilled up.
The prospects daily grow more encouraging.—
The Portland Press says that in order that the
State of Maine may be able to send forward her
quota of troops recently called for with promp
titude, it may, and probably will be necessary
to order a draft on the militia ; and 'adds:
"Why not? If men are wanted at once, they
must be furnished at once."
The recruiting of three hundred thousand
men is not the work of a few months, nor is
the labor of their discipline effected in as short
a time. If this vast army was absolutely re
quired immediately to re-inforce McClellan,
drafting would become necessary. Our people,
however patriotic and devoted to the Union,
are now engaged in gathering harvests and
prosecuting trades, which are in the highest
degree promising and prosperous. To leave
these to take care of themselves, without regard
to loss or damage, would be to inflict a blow
on the whole country as disastrous as that
which would follow the defeat of a division of
the army. Hence many men will be reluctant
to enter the army immediately, but they will
do so as soon as the harvest is over, or as soon
as they have secured the prosperity and the
success of the industrial pursuits, which are so
essential also to the success of the army. A.
very few weeks will secure this success and
prosperity, but in the meantime, hundreds of
men will be enrolled—hundreds more will be
preparing for service, so that the army will be
receiving strong additions every day. These
re-inforcements will of course obviate the ne
cessity of drafting ; yet should such a necessity
become imperative, we believe that the an
nouncement of the fact would fill up the quota
of the state before the initial arrangements of
a draft could be made.
Waor AN Onrosno upon this divine institn
tion was the Constitutional prohibition against
the slave trade after the year of our Lord,
1808—why did not the framers of the Coniti
tion declare that Arabian horses should not be
imported after that year? What an outrage
was the ordinance of 1787, excluding slavery
from the great northwest, if the modern doc
trine be true that slaves are but property like
hogs and Muscovy ducks ! The logic of slave
ry makes it universal. So that Mr. Seward
said truly , that there is an " irrepressible con
flict" between liberty and slavery ; and Mr.
Lincoln uttered but part of the truth when he
said that the States must be all slave or all free.
He should have said the world i But cannot
the world let the negro alone? Cannot the
free States let the negro alone Of course they
could, but the negro won't let them alone.—
The slave oligarchy would have rested satis
fied if its demand had not been resisted. If
the logio of slavery bad been received as law
and gospel ; if people had considered this law
and pledged themselves that they would nei
ther act, speak, nor wr.te, nor think against
slavery, then all would be well note—if that
state of thing could be called good—in which
slavery was being fostered in secula seculorum up- .
on the country. But a powerful majority of
the nation chose to resist slavery. A majority
of the nation, backed by the civilized world,
opposed the aggression of slave logic, and the
conflict began—the irrepressible conflict of
"words," which has'come to blows. Which
way will the question be decidsd f It is already
decided unless the strong patty chooses to let
go its grasp—" to check its thunder in mid
volley." If the advocates of the institution
will lay down their arms soon, very soon, then
slavery may yet rest many years—but its future
fate is nevertheless decided. The moral and
physical strength of the civilized world must
prevaiL If the abettors of slavery had only
been content with its status under the Chicago
platform, it would have been ae secure under
Mr. Lincoln, as under any of Ids predecessors—
everybody knows this. But they madly, in
sanely determined to rule or ruin. They ap
pealed to arms and now the question is decided
The fact cannot be ignored. Look at the re
spective forces, moral and physical, for and
against slavery—which will prevail? Can any
one be so idiotic as not to see? But may not
the majority change its mind and come to the
conclusion that slavery is right and profitable,
and concluded to let it have its way ? Oh, yes,
men have free will—they may, therean. Per
haps the world will quit eating and drinking,
and thus come to`an end. Men can thus ab
stain, but it would be unsafe to calculate too
largely on their so doing. The feelings, the
sentiments, the ideas, the opinions of advanc
ed humanity are as little likely to be reversed
for the sake of an exploded relic of barbarism.
The opposition to slavery may be calculated on
with all the certainty that attaches to physical
forces, and if this be so the question is decided.

Our humanity to traitors, in the efforts of the
government to put down treason and crush out
rebellion, has undoubtedly impressed the world
with some strange ideas of -the vigor of our
government: Thus far, in the struggle with
the southermconspirators, the government has
manifested a disposition to conduct the'war on
the principle of forbearance. Nobody was to
be hurt except the s3ldiers of the Union, per
haps ; "our misguided brethern" were to be
conciliated by magnanimous gentleness. The
war was for the purpose of bringing back the
old state of things, loving fraternity and "the
Union as it was." To the brethern who, un
happily, are so "misguided" as to carry knives
for our throats, we are to be conciliatory and.
kind. This, from the start, has been the idea
governing the war.
This thing, we trust, is ended. Gentleness,
kindness, charity, are chrietian graces to be
cultivated ; but they are misplaced graces in
dealing with rabid rebellion. Nothing but the
strong hand will suffice for repressing this in
surrection. Clemency has had its day, and
has been met every day withrufffianly requital.
How the men have fared who have stood
honestly by their oaths and their obligations as
citizens in the South, let Parson Brownlow tell.
While we have hesitated about confiscation—
dwelling upon some sublimated B=4le—they
have seized what they could find, and hung the
owners to save all questions of title. While we
have fed their wives. and children, they have
starved our prisoners.
This whole policy mud come to an end. It
is quite time. They who take up arms for civil
war must accept the state of war which they
make. It is was they invoke, and not the
amenities of peace. "The mild policy" has
been tried and does not win the allegiance of
bad men back to the government.
The conduct of the government has been
most magnanimous; forbearing at all times;
showing every clemency; withholding the ef
fective blows it might have struck ; considerate
of every relation on the part of its remnants.—
The result has been a prolongation of the war.
Forbearance has been treated as concession and
made an encourgement to rebellion. There
must be—so obvious is the necessity that no
body can doubt it—there lruirr as a change of

vention, by mentioning.certain of the limited
number of respectable : urn who occupied seats
in that body. We stated the same fact here
tofore, that there were a few honest, decent
and loyal men in that assemblage of traitors, but
they had no voice—they were choaked in every
attempted utterance, and were merely passive
members of a body in which•their dearest prin
ciples were sacrificed. The clique which sus
tains the Patriot used all its arts and trickery
to defeat VaUX for Chairman. He was a mark
ed man by the majority; as was every Doug
las man in that body, if we may accept a few
shallow brained and many worded demagogues
who have heretofore claimed affinity with that
wing of the Democracy, but who are always
ready to act with a majority, when prominence
or plunder become the inducements. The

Gas. BUTLER is a Democrat, but because he
is strenuously engaged in putting down rebel
lion, a certain class of Democracy hate and
malign him. A specimen of this malignitylis
exhibited in the following paragraph from the

nothing better than "Barchester Towers ;" and

manifested a wise discrimination in selecting
such a work for their "Hand and Pocket Li

very properly objects. Is is stirring, simple,
curious, moral, well written, and wholly un
objectionable in tone and sentiment. Add to
this, that each volume is not only printed on
marvellously white paper, with large, clear

just of a convenient size to drop into the - coat
