TEE DOUGH-FACE CANDIDAWFOR
HIS ANTICS:DENTS AND HIS PNIMINNT ACTIONS
When the nomination of Isaac Slenker was
announced; as the dougb•face candidate for
Auditor General, we declared the fact that
he was (hue recognized by his partisans 'Amply
because his antecedents were corrupt, and his
present acts in keeping with the treasonable
propensities of .dough-facism. We did not im
agine that these charges could be easily estab
lished, for the reason that Mr. Slenker is an
obscure lawyer, notorious only for the mconr
tigitiferit. he gives to 'bickering clients, out of
whose litigation he has succeeded in getting a
competency, and saddling his county With
many an item of cost which the practical ad
vice of joy = honest lawyer would have avoided.
But we were mistaken in our suspicion that
Mr. Blanker had no record, and that his repu
tation was.contined to the gossip and small-talk'
of the region in which be is personally known.
We see that he has a record, and such a record
only as is gathered by those who prostitute the
Influence they possess to the advancement of
the worst dogma in politics and the meanest
principles in government.
In 1849, Mr. Slenker professed to be a great
advocate of freedom, and was actually what is
now so reproachfully regarded by his present
advocates, "a freedom shrieker." He stood by
Samuel W. Black •on the Pittsburg platform,
and joined Gamble and Wilmot in their sturdy
fight for free soil. The Pittsburg Platform in
formed the people,
" Thad it is no part of the annpromise' of the
Oonstitution that Slavery should forever go with the
advancing tide of our territorial prestress."
Added to this sentiment, there were others
squally tte strong passed by the same conven
tion, all of which Mr. Slenker, without "men
tal reservation," folly endorsed and advocated.
But the influence of his party was too much
for his judgment and desire to become a pa
blot. He yielded to the corruptions of the
Buchanan administration, and labored with a
zeal for the election of . Breckenridge, which
showed too plainly that he was either after a
fee, or that he was determined to wreck the
great interests of the free and loyal states to
the fullest extent of his ability. During all
the dark and dreary hours of the close of Bu
chanan's misrule, when the country was, as it
were, at the mercy of a band of assassins,
when sonthern army and naval officers were
retiring from the,federal service, carrying with
them their ships of war, or holding forts, ar
senals and navy yards in their charge for the
use of the traitor government—at that hour,
when the rebels lad tired on the Star Of the
West, end amid drunken revels and profane
jeers, proclaimed Jeff. Davie their President,
Mr. 81enker stood forward as the endorser and
advocate of the following resolutions, passed at
a convention held in Lewliburg, February,
Resolved, That we deprecate civil war, as
we believe that this Union can never be 'main
tained by force of arms, and that as Democrats
we are not willing to take up arms to support a
platform which a majority of the people repu
diated and opposed at the polls.
Ruched, That we cordially approve the polig of
the National Administration, [Buchanan's,] in its
wise and conciliatory course in the present perilous
condition of the country."
These resolutions are sufficiently emphatic
and convincing to prove that the object of
those who sought their passage, was treasonable
—at leaatihe sentiment tends to that conviction,
and on evidence doubtless: not half as strong,
Mr. Sinker has convicted many a man of lar
ceny. By the same convention that adopted
these resolutions, Mr. Slenker was delegated as
a representative to Harrisburg, On the 22d of
February, 1861, when rebellion was at its
heighth, where he aided and applauded the
passage,of the following resolution :
That we will, by all proper and legitimate
Means, opdiscountenance and prom: any re
tempt oth H of the Republicans inpcwer to make
any armed aggression upon the southern States,
especially so long as laws contravening their
rthfe shall remain unrepealed on the statute
books of Northern State ; and so long as the
just demands of the South continue to be unre
cognised by the Republican majoiities in these
States, and unsecured by proper amendatory
explanations of the Constitution.
We have a notion that this record is sufficient
to fix Mr. Slenker as the embodiment of rank
Breckhnidge treason. Ha stands forth as the
applauder , and upholder of treason. He gave
traitors his countenance when they were rob
bing the government. He voted for Breckin
ridge when he knew that his nomination was
only a pretext for rebellion. He defended
eeceadoti until the danger to his neck and not
the workings of his conscience induced him to
make a ahoy of loyalty. What better proofs
need the piople of Pennsylvania have of the
utter incapacity `and unworthiness of Mr. Slen
ker as a candidate for Auditor General.
As_rebellion begins to clog, and the energy
and strength of treason loose their influence,
the subject of restoration begins to attract at
tention and elicit discussion. The true patriot
is animated by only one purpose in prosecuting
this war. This purpose, however We may in
Party heat or personal controversy seek to
tramel it with other objects, must be confined
. for the present, as the Newbern Progress has con
densed its meaning, to The Restoration of the
Union under the Constitution. Whatever change
we may anticipate and deem essential for the
future peace and security of the government,
must come after peace has been restored, and
the laws once more in harmonious end success
ful operation in the revolted states. The Union
was formed by the adoption of the Constitu
tion ; and until that instrument is amended by
those steps which itself prescribes, the Union
must be restored, if at all, under its provisions
as it now is. Restoration implies a return to a
state or condition previously existing. For one
state to enterinto bonds of union with other
states upon new terms and conditioni, would
in no sensebe a restoration—lt would be a new
formation. But there can be no such forma
tion, until we have a new, or at leaden amend.
ed Constitution. If, therefore, the states which
lave declared themselves out of the Union, are
brought back Into it, by that very act tbey are
re-invested with all the rights and privileges,
and made subject to all the responsibilities and
duties, which the Censtitution , contempkibm as
belonging to all the states. The Constitution
makes no discrimlnation ; it knows , and ,can
know no difference ixitween any of the states.
They all owe the same allegiance and are enti
tled to the same protection.
But reasoning thus, we have employed lan
guage in accommodation to its popular, but in
oar opinion, improper use. Strictly speaking
there is no such thing as restoring a state to the
Union—for there is no such a thing ae, a state
going out of the Union. The Constitution
makes no provision for any such event. The
Union once formed, is by its very term to be
perpetual. Hence South Carolina is as much a
member of the Union to-day, as she ever was—
as is the great state of Pennsylvania—
owing allegiance to it and bound by its consti
tutional authority as much as ever. Otherwise,
where is the authority of the federal govern
meet to employ force in that state to maintain
federal jurisdiction which rebellious citizens
have conspired to subvert and destroy? It is
because South Carolina is one of the Uuited
States, that the United States government has
the right to hold and maintain there its forts
and Custom Houses and post offices, and to put
down any combination formed to interfere
with that right. And whether such a combina
tion be weak or powerful—a minority or ma
jority of the citizens cannot change the rela
tions of the state to the: federal government,
nor impair the right of that government to ex
cruise the authority with which the Constitution
invests it in the several states, nor. does it effect
the right and duty of the federal government,
if the rebellion is sufficiently powerful to take
possession of the state government in all its
departments, and employ it in furtherance of
its treasonable designs, The state, notwith
standing all this, is an integral - -part of the
nation—and it is the duty of the national gov
ernment to maintain that supremacy at all
hazards. But when the rebellion is suppressed
and the federal authority re-established, the
state stands in precisely the same relation to
the Union as before. The treason of its citizens
has made and can make no change in its state
rights or obligations.
The individual citizens who have entered
into the rebellion and thereby incurred the
guilt of treason, have forfeited their tights of
citizenship, and are iliable to the penalty due
their crime ; but the forcible interruption or
suspension, by rebel citizens, of the functions
of the state as a member of the Federal Union,
and their attempt to sunder the bonds which
make it a part of that Union, can 'mike no
difference with its rights and duties as estate—
and the moment the force which' Causes such
interruption or suspension shall be removed,
and its functions as a loyal state resumed, its
stag* in the Union bedomes the same as before.
The treason of one citizen of South Carolina
against-the Fizierel Government cannot work
any forfeiture of the rights of that state as a
member of the Union—nor the treason of a
thousand, nor of a hundred thousand, nor can
the seizure by traitors of the organism of the
state government, and their employment of it
in the execution of their traitorous echemes,
work any such forfeiture. When the power of
those traitors is crushed, and the machinery of
the state government released from their con
trol, it re-occupies at once its place in the or
ganism of the Federal Government—its rights,
prorogatives, privileges, as well as its obliga
tions and duties, are the same as before.

It is officially published that the call by Gov.
Curtin, for nine and twelve months men was
made without previoni consultation or direction
of the President or War Department and having
been-made it was deemed by the President and
by the Department better to acceptsuch troops as
were offered under that call. But it is proper
to be 'noticed that the law does not allow any
bounty to the nine months men except the
$25 paid at the time of being mustered into
service. The remaining $75 is only payable to

The President, with deep regret, announces
to the people of the Dotted States the decease,
at Kinderhook, New York, on the 24th inst.,
of his honored predecesaor, Martin Van Buren.
This event will occasion mourning in the na
tion for the loss of a citizen and a public ser
vant whose memory will be gratefully cherish
ed. Although it has occurred at a Mine when
his country is afflicted with division and civil
war, the grief of his patriotic friends will meas
urably be assuaged by the consciousness that,
while suffering with disease, and seeing hie end
approaching, his prayers were for tip reatora
lion of the authority of the Government, of
which he had been the head, and for peace and
good will among his fellow-citizens.
As a remark of respect for his memory, it is
ordered that the Executive Mansion and the
several Executive Departments, except those
of the Army and Navy, be immediately placed
in mourning, and all business be suspended
during to morrow.
It is further ordered that the War any Navy
Departments use suitable military and navy
honors to be paid on this occasion to the mem;
ory of the illustrious dead.

in tegard -to the expedition commanded by
Gemmel Hatch, it may not be Inappropriate to
make the following statements as giyea by a
returned officer :
After reaching Culpeper, Gen. Hatch pushed
his whole force to the Rapidan river, where, in
consequence of-die destruction of , the bridges
and`the high elate of the 'ioater, he was com
pelled to leave his infanhy and artillery. With
his cavalry be pushed on to Orange Court
House, where he learned that the enemy were
in large force at Gordonsville. He stilt thence
a company of the Virginia cavalry towards
Gordonsville, who approached within six miles
of-the latter place, and confirmed the report of
the enemy's presence and strength.
On Friday, the 19Th, two brigades, supposed
to be commanded by Ewell, made their appear
ance at Orange. and on Saturday, after severe
skirmishing, General Hatch fell back and
crossed the Rapidan, and arrived at Culpepper
on Sunday. During this time twenty eight
men.of Company 4, New-York Cavalry, were
captured by the enemy, owing, it is said, to
the commanding officer," who'did not believe a
statement that the enemy were advancing in
force upon -his- station. Two-or three man,
whose horses were saddled, made their escape.

The offer of additional bounty to recruits
having been elsewhere extended, the same pro
vision for this purpose has been made in Penn
sylvania by counties, corporations and by in
dividual subscriptions. It is due to the authori
ties or citizens furnishing the bounty, that
suggestions should be received from them re
garding the appointment of officers of companies
raised in their respective districts.
The troops now being raised, have by the
Proclamation of the Governor, of the 21st inst.,
been apportioned among the several counties.
This renders it expedient, in order to avoid con
fusion, that the number of persons engaged in
recruiting should be limited.

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 Lesislative action
and the negotiation of loans. Delay might be
fatal. To put down this rebellion is the bad
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 indi
vidually ready to bear themselves.
The conduct of our 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 thin crisis, (as it may be safely trusted,) to
the loyalty, fidelity and valor of her freefr ee men.
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 etany 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
sande 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 GCN
armament, 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
®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, tips eighty-seventh.

a requisition on Pennsylvania for twenty-one
new regiments, and the regiments already i n
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 muses. We must look to the
future. Everything that is dear to us is at
Under these circumstances I appeal with con
