KOMIRN7'B OF GOV. CURTIN.
The Governor of Pennsylvania left the state
capital to-day for Washington city, where he goes
to consult with the President in regard tii;tl;e
military organksmions of this commonwealth,
the time and manner of making the draft, and
such other matters as will facilitate enlistments
and drafting in PennsylVania.
It it the desire of Gov. Curtin, if the acqui
escence of the War Department can be had, to
postikine the 'time - flied for the draft. He is
indticaci to this, on the assurance that there are
hun4ds of young and active men ready to
enlist; if they are permitted to go into the ser
vice under the same atuqiices and terms of
bounty which were accorded to the other men
now in the army. This only seems just. At
thedithe the call wee made , for the last three
hundred thousand Men, large numbers of the
people of the rural districts were engaged in
the work of harvest. That is now finished—
but volunteering is also finished, and nothing
is left for such men as these but to submit to a
draft, wlifch is regarded by many as ignomini
ous: In order that this feeling may be dis
pelled; and the brave men who are anxious to
volunteer may have as' opportunity to do so,
Gov. Curtin will propose to the War Depart
ment au extension of the time fixed for a draft.
It is to be hoped that in this particular His Ex
cellency will be successful.
Another and a still more important object of
Gov.: &kin, is to indirce the War Department
to vest the State authorities with power, to
give townships, boroughs, towns, cities and
countiee credit for!the meii treicrulted thus far,
so that the draft can be graded for 'Ruch locali
ties, and recruiting the system throughout the
Commonwealth. This seems only fair and
just, because, however we may attempt to die.
guisektne faor, there are localities in the Com
munwi•atth in which men have boasted of their
determination not to enlist, and in whiCh the
practice of interfering with volunteers hue
been openly encouraged. Such spots must 6.
reached, and if the Pretddentbdincides with the
propositio6 Of therattthotitietrirom this state,
Gov. Curtin is the man to reach and bring out

WREN Docroa Caw= lectured in this city,
dome mouths since, we denounced the spirit
Ind tife . of - his Venture, betause we be
lieved his course to he mischievous. When
Wendell Pgilliptt apper4ed in Brant's Hall and
addressed the people of the state capital, we
approved of his, disconnte, because thweenti
merits which he utterect on that occasion were
highly wise and patriotic. But our approval of
the sentiments then uttered, does not bind us
In admiration of the course whioh he has
,lace followed. We now believe that Phillips
'mad his immediate friends, in the attitude which
'they have since assumed, , have put themselves
beyond the support and confidence of those who
oppose slivery as a social sin 'and a national
disgrace, nnd Who are 'Omitted to agitating that
question inerely'for the purpokeof giving sti min
ions and virulence to the passions and resent-
Monts of men. A fair, open, consistent and
fearless opposition to slavery is manly, just and
becoming every American citizen. It is the
noblest work in which an intelligent man can
engage, and next to'the -preaching of religion,
the promulgation 'of freedom demands our most
serious aid and support. But the man who
mikes the reformation and amelioration of on •
triumphs Ind pregress of another, is neither a
benefactofol the one or a worthy representa
tive of the other. He -becomee-itt-reality a
miserable and' titdangerrous egitktor,`lmfair id
argument and ridiculous in theory. To make
an issue with.a great 'government, founded on
free principles, while opposing slavery, is far
worse then the who attempt such issue while
they defend,artd,riphold that barbarity. The
olgveholder, educated in the prejudlc aof the
institution, may be excused, to a certain extent,
'for thinking lightly of free government:chile

But toe} man who

Incompetent to judge between .right and
wrong, when title - It:LOC:le jiii4o: his me

philanthropy; iffarlonlis to convulsion and an

,down the great , fahrie of a free government
,one' rice, has erected, because the op-,
Prawns land the ignorance of the African
exclude him 'from a like enjoyment or a similar
achievement. Such 'conduct is treasonable at
this time, we care not whether Wendell Phil
lips makes it the excuse--foropposing the
government, or whether' the tither extreme is
taken, and - the uPholilers of', shivery make
their interests in that institution the pretext
of destroying freedom sod the government by
which freedern is defended and encouraged.
In this etraggle, thitie must be no issue,with
the government. Before we attempt to correct
thd i errors of our rulers, we must essay the de
atrriction of the wrongs of our enemies: 'The
government must be first seourelisustained.
Its'prerogativee, its majesty, its mightand its
destiny are all in the scales. Opposed to them
