A POWE'RFU.L sr cs.
We print this morning the speech of John
W. Forney, delivered in . the Union Convention
of the 17th inst. 'The loom thus occupied Is
most'appropriately devdted, and we know that
our readers will thank us in thus early laying
before them this most eloquent and unanswera
ble speech. Col. Forney discusses the issues of
the war in .a style at once candid and conclu
sive, leaving no room for captions objection or
dogmatic differences, unless it is by those who
are determined to differ and object to all that
is honest; honorable and loyal. We bespeak

TEE SITa4TION IN PENNS YLVA.NIet:
The ardor of the people and the energies of
the authorities are fully awake to the grent
emergenclea of- the crisis, and we , now, havn
the Ampleet authority to assert that the quota
of troopdcalledfor fromtbis commonwealth
be tarnished in the shortest possible time.
From all parts of ,the State the assurance Is
unmistakable, in relation to the awakened en-'
thulium or the people, so that all that is Twirl
Melded Is the immediate action of the Gov:
erpor, and a conclusion on his part to answer a l
great responsibility, to render the enlistment of
troops for new, and to fill , up old regiments,
irtiniediate, prOmpt and successful.
We must offer a liberal bounty to every sol
dier, whether enlisting in an old or a new regi
ment ; a bounty not to consist of leas than MY
dollars or;more, as the Legislature, in its plidorri
and liberality may see fit to authorize. Gover
nor Orlin must take the responsibility of paying this 1
boungy at once, trusting to the Legislature to stis.j,
tam hisaction, of which there can be „no
doubt now that such will be the case. Not
withstnnding the Constitution forbidt the Gkm-.
ever to use any money not mr.prOsly
Merl for the purpose used, in this instance, the.
necessity justifies the Innovation. The Legis-;
!attire will be speedily convened in an eitin'see
idon, so that - there lined' be 'no fear that `that .
body will refuse its sanction to such action on!
the part of the Governor. '
TO delay this matter now, may be, to defer;
some of the greateit and most important plans,
of the fetieral government. The mere paying
of a bounty to troops enlisted before the meet=
of this extra session of the Leghdature wouldf
not amount to a Very.large sum of inquey,ktdi
when such an extra session is once organised,;
an appropriation could at once he madd cowl
ering the sum fixed . for the entire amount :to ,
,in bounties. Tlte sentiment of ,
the people is in favor of =such a course , ou ths.
Dart of the state government, and we trust!
that Gov. 'Curtin 'wilt not hesitate a moment in.
at once offering this houniy, in anticipation, as
it were, of the action of the Legislature. 1,
CAMPS OF LNSTRUOTION.
In connection with the camp atthis poi nt,;
it' has been decided to eatablish camps in various:.
other localities throughout the state, for the.
purpcise of encouraging enlistments and facili
tating the inilititry organization about to lie';
initiated. These camps will, be located at
points hereafter to be designated in Luserne,
lifohtgomery, -Allegheny, Lancaster, Tioga, ori
Bradford,.Waibington and Franklin counties.;
The idea in thus scattering a number of (Impel
is to secure 'for the recruits immediate- and
comfortable accommodation , ' and the disc:lo4j
necessary for his effective service 'in the field.

Delivered in the Union Convention, Assembled of
Harrisburg on the 17th of July, in support of
Resoktlions adopted ofi theit occasion.
The resolutions, Mr. President, which have
just been read, comprise, in brief terms, the
duty of the loyal men of 'Pennsylvania, and
they will go to the country as an utterance
that must produce healthful consequences.
There are elements in We assemblage whidb
have never been combined on any former pe
riod of our country's issue. We have here
representatives of the Itemibliwi party, the,
People's party, the American party, and of
the loyal men of the Democratic party. I
notice that at least twenty counties of the
State have -sent. Democratic delegates to this
Convention. The heavy. r gicom which seems
again tti have settled rifted our unhappy; thou-
try, has had the effeet of extinguishing many
dissensions. Men-whg.,Juive differed radically
in former years now stand together like a band ,
of brOthers. But - lone -, motives. eirdidateti this

may differ, Mr. President; this is not merely
struggle for our existence as a free,people, but
it is a struggle between liberty, And slavery.

bllf, Mr. President, slavery is the cause of t
great Crusade Wien human liberty, its iiiirn4
diate agents and Ministers confess by all Welt
acts thee' they are fully_ conscious of the truth
of this assertion. They have pursued the fell
purpose'which has now ripened into war, with
a persistence, which can only be explained lii
their 'clew sympathy with the rebellion itself;
and their sincere hatred of the government of
the United States. Calling themselSes Deatoi
crate, they ate' banded together in' favor'of
'slavery and • aristocracy. Let Me take A
prominent example of the school. ' The
old man who' lives in deglected solitude

of Pennaylvania. Bep is dow beybnd the
Psalmist's age." He 'Mitered - the' Presidential
chair more than 'five yenta g aga, with 'lief fali
an opportunity to serve and eave Oki cotetry,
as ever had been .prenented -to man. He wag
elected upon a distinct and voluntary pledge
tljtat he would give to the people; 'of the nn.
happy territory of Kansas the right to dispose
of their own affairs in their own way. Had he
been true to this; we 'idtou/d have had neither
'secession or bloodshed. The history of his un- ,
paralleled treachery is written, written air in
carnage and in shame. ' It ought to be supposed
that, now looking over this' history, he would.
stem the Occasion to ex slate his' mighty' crime
by some manifestatioe —:
of public penitence.
It niightibelnipposed that now, in his old age,s
he would secure the favor. and forgiveness' of

to rally to the common defence , and to shun his
fatal exempla. .But no, gentlemen, so far from
this the animating soul of the rebellion in the
southern states isnot more Jefferson Davis than
the animating soul of the' rebellion in the free
states is James Buchanan. He seems to desire
the immortal infamy of dragging our . gloriong
Unioninto,the dishonored grave he is himself
soon to fill. Around his own home, as proved
by the convention which assembled in - his: owli
county a few weeks ago, and by :that: which

treated, and that the best way to convince the

the Government to offer peace in the midst of

that no moderation can reach the authors of this
great crime, the President will undoubtedly
