THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW.
RESOLUTION . ADOPTED BY A CAUCUS OP UNION BEEN
IN CONORM.9, AND RATIFIED BY THE PEOPLE OP
PENNSYLNANIA IN CONVENTION, JULY 17, 1862.
" ghat we hold it to be the duty of all loyal men
to stand by the Union in this hour of its trial; to
unite their hearts and hands in earnest, patriotic ef
forts for its maintenance against those who are in
arms against it; to sustain with determined resolu
tion our patriotic President and his administration
in their energetic efforts for the prosecution of the
war and the preservation of the Union against ene
mies at home or abroad ; to punish traitors and trea
son with filling severity, and to crush the present
wicked and causeless rebellion, so that no flag of
disunion shall ever again be raised over any portion of
the Republic; and to this end we invite the co-opera
tion of all men who love their country, in the endeavor
to rekindle in all the States such a patriotic fire as
shall utterly consume all who strike at the Union of
our fathers, and all who sympathise with their treason
or palliate their guilt."

THE NEW WAR POLICY
The announcement is now confidently and
even boestingly made, that we are to have a
new war policy. In asserting this charge, we are
led to infer that the policy heretofore pursued
by those who control the operations of the
army in the field, was wrong, radically and
emphatically wrong. There are very few peo
ple who stand aloof from those notoriously in
sympathy with the rebel cause, who do not
sincerely believe that the manner in which the
war has heretofore been conducted, was weak
and dilitory. It did not seem to us, nor was it
believed by the governments of the world, that
a war was waged to crush rebellion. Millions
of dollars were lavished—thousands of lives
were sacrificed—and still no definite results
were arrived at, and when those who mourned
the dead and those who poured out their
wealth, interposed a gentle hint that the war
bad only blood and carnage for the federal
forces, they were told by the friends of favorite
Generals, that this war was not an abolition
raid—that its operations were controlled by the
constitution—that its movements were scienti
fic-that its marches were stragetical and that
the great anaconda system would either smoth
er the rebellion in its folds, or commit suicide
in its own contortions. Our men were either
defeated or demoralized, before they lay down
to death amid the dismal swamps along the
line of march to tilehmond. They sweltered
and wasted their energies with shovels and
picks in hand, as bands of rebels hovered on
their flanks, dealing the unerring death
shot whenever a gap was left to reach a vic
tim. Thus labor was done by our men while
thousands of negroes were emploring to do the
same work, and frequently men were compelled
to fly from the shovel and the pick, worn out
with labor; to engage with superior forces and
fight when they should have been awarded the
the common rest allowed to brutes.
—But we are to have a new policy—a policy
by which no means will be despised that are
capable of assisting to crush rebellion—a policy
at once wise, sagacious, speedy and certain in
all its acts intended to put down treaon—a
policy to save the country, though slavery and
all its upholders be sunk into the darkest cav
erns of hell in the effort—a policy which will
not pause at the remonstrance of those who
dare to advise leniency, and which will tend to
save the Union, if every inch of rebel territory
in the Union Is desolated by its effects. We
must save the Union. We must rescue its
fairest portions from traitors, assassins and in
cendiaries. We must end this war, and bring
back to their homes and their business the
enterprise, intellect and industry which are now
in the ranks of the Federal army. All this is
to be done by this new policy, for the success
of which we most devoutly pray.
THE MST ENSTALMENT.
The secesh organ, forgetful for awhile of its
duties to the cause of its master, Jeff Davis, en
deavors this morning to pay itsfirst enstalment
of the obligation under which it rests to Gen.
Roumfort, who so generously and in such a char.
Roble spirit entered bail for MacDowell and
Barrett, in certain suits for libel lately insti
tuted against these gentlemen, and thus saved
them from sweltering in one of the cells of the
county prison until the hot days had passed
and the session of court arrived. It is
right that they should thus repity the General,
as payments of any other description are un
usual in the business transaction of either of I
the firm alluded to, but it was unwise for the
Davis organ to splutter on tife omission on our
part in not printing Gen. Roumfort's speech,
when the eloquent speeches of Messrs. Miller,
Kunkle, Herr and Rev. Moore are not printed
in the Davis organ. We published sketches of
the remarks of these gentlemen, and not deem
ing the relation of a stale anecdote "a speech,"
we of course did not imagine that the gallant
Gen. Ronmfort desired himself put forth as the
relator of an incident sufficiently familiar to the
public to make it stale, flat and unprofitable at
this late day. We did no more than simply
refer to the few sentences uttered by Judge
Pearson on the occasion, and when a gentleman
of erudition and eloquence such as the Judge fi
so widely reputed, is passed over with a mere
word of reference, we think that silence in re
gard to any remarks made by A. L. Roumfort
should be considered by himself and friends as
a high compliment.
In regard to the actual facts of the report of
the late mass meeting are concerned, and She re
mita growing out of the proceedings, it is rather
late for the dough-faces of the Davis organ to
rant or rare. That report was not seen by Mr.
Berger until it appeared in the Isr.onsm, and
so far as the subscription list is concerned,
neither Gen. Roumfort or any other Indivi
dual has a shadow of right to claim its ex
clusive credit. The paper headed by Charles
L. Baily with $5OO was prepared and in circula •
lion among the crowd in the court room before
Gen. Roumfort was aware of the fact, and con
sequently before he could make any suggestion
on the subject. Notwithstanding this, the
General deserves credit for what he has done,
and may his partisans and defenders do like
—Thus we spoil this romance of the Davis
organ, and dissipate the impression it meanly
sought to create, by stealing the credit of a
spontaneous movement of the people for the
purpose of making false capital for its bail in
a criminal prosecution. We despise and scorn
its personal flings of envy and of rancor, an d
we contemn and defy its personal antagonism
. shape the Davis organ may choose to
TEEASON OF GEO. W. JONES- VALLAN
It will be remembered that, . some months
ago, Geo. W. Jones, for some years United
States Senator from the state of lowa, but in
the latter part of Buchanan's administration
United States Mieister at Bogota, New Grenada,
South America, was arrested and confined at
Fort Lafayette, under • charge of having held
treasonable correspondence with those in re
bellion against the United States government.
The arrest was made immediately on Mr.
Jones' arrival in the United States from Bogota,
and certain intercepted letters from Mr. Jones
were understood to be the ground of the ar
The Burlington (Iowa) llawkeye publihes the
letters referred to. The first is dated "Legs
tionj United States, Bogota, N. G, May 17,
1861 ;" and is addressed to "His Excellency,
JIFFERSON DAVIS, of Mississippi, President, &c.,
at Montgomery, Alabama," whom Mr. Jones
calls his "noble and very dear friend " We have
not room for the whole of these letters but we
present enough to enable our readers to judge
of Mr. Jones's loyalty.
The following extracts are from the letter to
You may well say, as you do in your letter
to me, that you "know (I) will sympathize with
How can I feel otherwise, dear old friend,
college-mate and colleague, than sympathize
for you and the people whom you represent on
such occasion. Born in what they tauntingly
call a free state (Indiana,) brought up in Mis
souri, and educated there and in Kentucky,
and having resided for the last thirty-four
years in Michigan, Wisconsin and lowa, I can
not but be well acquainted with the principles,
feelings and actions of the parties to the con
test which is now going on in my beloved
But let what may come to pass, you may
rely upon it, as you say, that neither I or mine
will ever be found in the ranks of our (your)
enemies. May God Almighty avert civil war,
but if unhappily it shall come, you may, I think,
would doubt (doubtless) count on me and mine
and hosts of other friends standing shoulder to
shoulder in the ranks with you and our other
south ern friends and relatives, whose rights like
my own have been disregarded by the aboli
tionists. I love lowa and Wisconsin for the
honors conferred by them on me, and because
I served them always faithfully, but I will not
make war with them against the south whose
rights they shamefully neglected.
So, Mr. Jones' love of the States which have
honored him so much is purely of the most
selfish character, without one spark of real pa
Letter No. 2 is addressed to "Hon. J. E.
Morse, New Orleans, La.," and bears date
"August, 1861. The following is an extract
from this letter:
I expect my successor, Allen A. Burton, of
Kentucky, every day, and will leave the next
day after his arrival, being exceedingly anxious
to return home to my family—my sons haying
left them to come down south to fight for the
maintenance of the Constitutionf the laws, and
the rights of the people of the South, as I in•
tend to do if required to fight at all,and if it be
possible for me to leave my family and my
private affairs now almost in a ruined state in
consequence of the crisis. Great God what a
calamity will civil war be to my country! None
of you there who have not been eye witnesses
to such an evil can tell. I have seen nothing
else for the last year, and dread the horrible
consequences to my hitherto prosperous, happy
and peaceful country.
If r urfriend Douglas had died one day before
the meeting of the Charleston Convention, or
if such Southerners as yourself, Stephens,John
son, ei al, had not stood by him, all now would
have been peace and prosperity, unity and hap
piness. I wondered often that such men as
you, Dodge, (A. C.) &c., could not see into
Douglas' unprincipled and ambitious schemes
and drop him before you did as I did. •
The attention of the friends of the late Sena •
for Douglas is especially invitid to the last
paragraph in the above extract.
And yet this man Jones, an acknowledged
traitor to the United States Government and in
friendly and sympathizing correspondence with
the enemies of the government, at the same
time that he was acting as its sworn officer, is
now laboring for the reorganization of the Vallandig
ham party in lowa. He is one of the same faa

warm friend and counsellor of such men as

editorial reference to the monster war meeting,
we confess an omission that does not accord
with our admiration for Rev. Moore, for whose
sincerity, eloquence, learning and devotion as
a man, a chrietian and a patriot, we have the
highest respect. Rev. Moore's speech, on the
occasion of the meeting, was a brilliant and ir
resistible appeal for the Union cause.

STEPHEN PAYS FOR A DRAY
AUGUSTUS USES IT FOR AN AIRING
In order that the record may be preserved
full and complete, we print the following stirring
speech of General Roumfort, supposed to have
been made at the late monster demonstration
of the people of this city, called for the purpose
of providing men and money to conduct the
war. Its eloquence and elegance must be de
tected by the reader, as both are beyond our
—But to the speech, fellow citizens, to the
speech, which is in these sublime and soul stir
ring words :
Mr. PRIMIDENT :—ln seconding this motion of
giving a bounty of fifty dollars to such as will
enlist in the ranks of our brave army, I under
stand we are making an appropriation, and
therefore feel the necessity of raising the ways
and means. In cennection with this important
matter, I will beg leave to relate an anecdote
which occurred many years ago, during the
useful life of Stephen Girard, the millionaire.—
In front of the great merchant'scounfu house
stood, on a summer's morning, a he and
dray. The horse, stung by flies, became res
tive and backed with the dray into the river
and was drowned. The poor drayman, who
owned the horse, was by this sad mishap strip
ped of his only means of supporting himself
and family, and looked with blank despair up
on the sudden ruin which had overtaken him.
He was immediately surrounded by a crowd of
sympathizers, who in various phrases expressed
their pity. They said, "'twas passing strange;
'twas pitiful, 'twas wonderous pitiful ;" yet,
not even a dime was spoken of. Meanwhile,
attracted by the crowd, Stephen Girard appear
ed in their midst, and, ascertaining the cause
of this great overflow of pity, exclaimed " Yon
say you pity this poor man. How much do
you pity him? I pity him twenty dollars !"
The practical charity of the merchant was duly
appreciated LI , his audience, and in a short
time a sum was raised sufficient to purchase an
other horse for the unfortunate drayman, who
with a grateful heart went on his way rejoicing.
Now, Mr. President, as this great meeting is
here for a practical purpose, I will ask them to
chow their sympathy after the fashion of Ste
phen Girard ; and:since there must be a begin
ning to all thicgs, I will express' my sympathy
in a check for fifty dollars, which I am ready to
pay to any committee authorized by this meet
ing to make collections.

In the Name and by the Authority
COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,
ANDREW G. CURTIN,
Governer of the said Oommoawealth.
To sustain the Government in times of com
mon peril, by all his energies, his means and
his life, if need be, is the firsti duty of every
The President of ,the United States has made
a requisition on Pennsylvania for twenty-one
new regiments, and the regiments already in
the field must be recruited. Enlistments will
be made for nine months in the new regiments
and for twelve months in the old.
The existence of the present emergency is
well understood. No patriot will pause now
to investigate its causes. We must look to the
future. Everything that is dear to us is at
Under these circumstances I appeal with con
fidence to the Freemen of Pennsylvania. You
have to save your homes and your firesides—
your own liberties and those of • the whole
I call on the inhabitants of theconniies,
boroughs and townships throughout our bor
ders to meet and take active measures for the
immediate furnishing of the quota of the State.
Let those who cannot go themselves contrib
ute to provide bounties, equal, at least, to those
offered by adjoining States.
The Constitution prohibits me from drawing
money from the Treasury without authority of
law, and I will not cast a doubt on the patriot
ism of our citizens by assuming the necessity of
calling the Legislature at this time.
This Is no time to wait for Legislative action
and the negotiation of loans. Delay might be
fatal. To put down this rebellion is the busi
ness of every man in Pennsylvania ; and her
citizens will show on this occasion that they do
not wait for the slow process of legislation, and
do not desire to throw on the Treasury of the
Commonwealth a burden which they are
vidually ready to bear themselves.
The conduct of onr men already in the field
has shed immortal lustre on Pennsylvania. Let
their brethren fly to arms to support them, and
make victory speedy as well as certain.
I designate below the number of companies
which are expected from the several counties
in the State, trusting the support of her honor
in this crisis, (as it may be safely trusted,) to
the loyalty, fidelity and valor of her freemen.
Whilst the quota of the several counties is
fixed equitably so as to fill the requisition for
twenty-one regiments, let not the loyal peo
ple of any county limit their exertions to the
enlistment of the companies named.
Our heroic sons of Pennsylvania have moist
ened every battle field with their blood; thou
sands have bravely died defending the unity of
the Republic and the sanctity of our flag, and
other thousands have fallen sick and wounded,
and their places filled.
Freemen of Pennsylvania! Friends of Gov
ernment, of order and of our common nation
ality ! one earnest struggle and peace will
again dawn upon us as a happy, prosperous
and united people.
Given under my hand and the great seal of
013 the State at Harrisburg, this twenty-first
day of July, in the year of our Lord one
thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, and of
the Commonwealth, the eighty-seventh.
