WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY 4,18 W
THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT,
Union County Convention.
The citizens of the county of Dauphin favor
able to the Union and State and National Ad
are requested to meet in
Convention on Monday, the sixteenth day
of May, at two o'clock, P. it., at the Court
House, in the city of Harrisburg, for the pur
pose of selecting three conferees to meet sim
ilar conferees from the counties of Northum
berland, Union, Snyder and Juniata, whose
duty it will be to select a delegate to represent
the 14th Congressional District in the Na
tional Convention at Baltimore, to be held in
June next, for the purpose of nominating a
candidate for President and Vice President.
Meetings for the election of delegates will
be held in the various townships of the county,
at the usual place of holding said elections,
between the hours of five and seven, P. M.,
and in the several wards and boroughs be
tween the hours of seven and nine, P. at., on
Saturday, the 14th instant.
H. THOMAS, Chairman
Dauphin county Union Committee.
S. S. Cam), Secretary.
The Adjournment of the Liegislature.
After a stirring session of many weeks, the
adjournment of the Legielature will take
place to-morrow, to be re-convened in August
for the purpose of counting the vote on the
Constitutional amendments. It is not to be
denied that much wholesome legislation has
been had, but it must also be admitted that
the action of the minorities in both Houses
has resulted in entailing upon Pennsylvania
not only a great measure of disgrace, but
an additional load of public debt. The action
of the minority in the Senate has been most
_humiliating. By the course of the Copper
head leaders in that body, Pennsylvania suf
fered more evil, more real wrong and actual
injury, than could be inflicted by the most
reckless extravagance and waste of her re
sources. Indeed, the Democratic minority in
the Senate succeeded in adding just the round
sum of 'MAMMON OF DOLLARS TO THE STATE
DEBT. This result was their work—a result
produced, first, to depreciate the National
credit, and, second, to fill the pockets of the
foreign enemies of the National Government.
Our only consolation now is that such men as
Senator Lamberton, who was one of the most
prominent in the game of fraud, will end his
carreer as a legislator with the adjournment
of the Senate to-morrow. No set of men
ever made a record such as has been written
down for him and his coadjutors. And in that
record of infamy, Lamberton will stand pre
eminent, as well for his intolerance and his
disloyalty as for his presumptuous efforts
to distinguish himself in an arena where
brain, not, impudence, is alone capable of
giving a man fair prominence. Much as we
abhor the principles so persistently advocated
by Senator Wallace, we can but feel gratified
with the knowledge that he will, at least for
another term, represent the county which
Lamberten now disgraces.
Pennsylvania and the Draft
It is now positively fixed that the localities
in Pennsylvania which have not furnished in
full their quotas making up the ensire number
called for from the State, will be compelled to
resort to the draft to settle their accounts
with the War Department. To these proceed
ings we have no objeciions to urge, nor will
the localities thus deficient or negligent in
filling up their quotas, have a just cause of
complaint. In making a call for troops, a
fair time has always been afforded every dis
trict to complete their enrollment ; while the
facilities contained in the law on the subject
were of a character to render the rigors of
conscription comparatively light. Hence,
the districts now deficient, cannot complain
if the draft is vigorously and even sternly en , .
forced. But, while we admit all this to be just,
and are willing to accept the full force of the
necessity that Pennsylvania must make good
her deficiency on the draft, the question forces
itself upon us at this time, whether all the
States are as impartially dealt with, and
• whether, too, it is not a fact that Penn
sylvania is the only State in the Union,
which faithfully and with alacrity filled her
quota on the first draft? Would it not be well,
then, for the War Department to . insist that
the States which have not filled their quotas
on the first draft, at once make up their defi
ciencies? By such a course, if fairly carried
out, the Government would wield a greater in
fluence in enforcing the draft for deficiencies
on the last call; but it the delinquencies of
the States thus deficient are to be passed over,
and the draft only enforced for deficiencies on
the last call, dissatisfaction and heart-burn
ing will- assuredly follow. Indeed, the whole
business of the draft has been loosely con
ducted, so far as regards its details and the en
forcement of the law as a measure made neces
sary by the- neglects of the people. Had
the Government, in the first place, as was
urged by Gen. Cameron when he was at the
head of the War Department, enlisted only
three years' men, and called out large bodie
of these, the struggles of the conspirators
could not have lasted kyear. Our oVerwhelm
ing forces would have crushed the rebellion.
But the moment we began to take men for
two years and nine months, the organization
of the army became insecure. Gen. Cameron
made an effort to refuse two years' men, but
he was overruled, and the fact that the term
of service of the two years' men expired just
as several important battles were to be fought,
accounts for disasters in the field which
almost proved fatal at the time to the Govern
—While the draft is being enforced in Pen
sylvania, we hope and our people demand
that the draft be sternly put into. operation in
all the States deficient in their quotas. Let
it not be inferred among our people, that,
because Pennsylvania has no "representative
in the Cabinet, her people are disregarded and
her rights trampled upon. Let us rather have
the evidence of an impartiality which will in
spire confidence and respect, so that when the
laws are being sternly carried into effect, the
people may feel and confess that the labor and
responsibility of Crashing out the slave-hold
ers' rebellion are fairly apportioned to all
The Personal Integrity of the President.
It is not singular that the President of the
United States should have excited in the
bosoms of those who were disappointed
by his dispensation - of patronage, a feeling of
personal opposition. It is reasonable, too,
that the friends of the disappointed should be
inspired with a sort of malignant feeling for the
President; and we may add, it is natural in a 1
traitor to hate Abraham Lincoln. But of these
opponents, we defy all or either of them, suc
cessfully to assail the personal integrity of the
man—the inborn, natural, noble attribute
and devotion to truth in Abraham Lincoln. •
We know that there are those who would de
light in stigmatizing the President as a false
man— r as a double dealing trickster—as faith:-
less in his personal dealing, and as wavering
in his official acts and proceedings. There
are those who profess to be Republicans—
who delight in being identified, with the
most radical portion •of the policy of the
National Administration, and yet affect to
despise the . President, while they .profess
to have detected the most frightful flaws in his
personal integrity. When such men as these
are fairly followedin their tortuous political (as
well as social) career, it will be found that they
are really the false ones, and that the character
in which they seek to present the President, is
one reflected . by their own duplicity and
double-dealing. It has been the personal integ
rity of the President, which has contributed the
largest share, in the civi/ sense, to the honor and
the dignity of the Government, while those who
represent its authority were engaged in a fear
ful struggle with a wicked rebellion. We
defy the most carping critic of the official acts
of the President, as we challenge his bitterest
personal and political enemy, to prove, either
from his written or spoken words, that he
ever sought to deceive a friend or delude the
country. His frankness has become prover
bial.. His dignified impartiality has been of a
character to astonish those who represent for
eign nations, and whose rule of government
that the "king can do no wrong ;" and hence
that the king knows no bound in his action,
to a friend or foe.
Those who are engaged in the war of assail
ing the personal integrity of the. President
will speedily find, if they have not already
found, that they are engaged in a futile task.
It is much easier for them to shake the confi
dence of the copperhead masses in the glory
and the justice of freedom, than it is to impair
the reputation of the President for personal
integrity with the intelligent masses of the
loyal, as well as the candid men of the re
volted States. That personal integrity has
been a shield to the nation in the hour of its
most fearful peril. Hence, it is the duty of
all true, frank and generous men fearlessly to
combat every effort thus to destroy the power
of that personal integrity, as being among the
mightiest of the moral influences at work for
the National preservation.
Hon. Henry D. Moore took full possession
of the State Treasury on Monday, the term
of the late Treasurer, Mr. McGrath,' having
expired on the 30th ult. To the retiring
Treasurer, we cannot but express a feeling
of great personal respect for the courtesy
with which all his official intercourses were
conducted ; but at the same time we are
constrained to place on record the fact, that
it was partly owing to lifts hasty action that
the State was compelled to add to the inter
est due her creditors in a manner to increase
the. State debt a million of dollars. Here
, after, Mr. McGrath, as well as 'those who
9.cted with him and:shared the profits of this
" splendid raid" on the resources of the
Treasury, will regret this action and curse
It is not necessary for us to write a word con
cerning-Hon. Henry D. Moore. His integrity
is as'well known as the faith and credit of the
Coinmonwealth itself. His' ability as a finan
cier has more than once assisted in preserving
unimpairea the resources and the credit of the
State, so that for the fiscal year about to com
mence we have every assurance that the
financial operations of the Commopmealth
will be ably and successfully guarded.

The House of Representatives was in ses

can justly write that we never, in the whole

disgraceful scene of fillibustering than that
which was enacted on the occasion. The bu
siness before the House was of no public in
terest, and yet the malevolence of the- minor

pression, so that the bill just then before the

from no other conceivable Motive than mere
factiousness, carried on for three hours a dis

of staving off a vote upon The bill, and tilts
depriving the majority of their rightful power.

were again and again., renewed, interspersed
with motions . to reconsider. , .the vote on ad

On every vote the yeas and nays were called,
purely . with the view of consuming time, and

answer to their names, thus reducing the
number voting to less .than a quorum, and
necessitating the tedious process Of first call

on the pending question. Finally, when it
became apparent that the majority of the
House could no longer be -thus brow-beaten,
and when every reasonable man had become
indignant at the factious course of the minor
ity, a vote on agreeing to the bill was arrived
at. When the Clerk began to call the roll,
this was the signal for a hnrricane of confu
sion, such as is rarely witnessed in the most
,disorderly legislative body. Twenty or thirty
members on the Democratic side continually
drowned the voice of the Clerk with their
yells of "Mr. Speaker," and their attempts to
speak, when nureeognized by the Chair, and
when repeatedly appealed to to take their
seats, and observe some show of decorum.

LONG'S SPEECH IN CONGRESS
The Richmond Examiner, of the 29th ult.
says: "If we hold our own in Virginia till
this summer is ended the North's power of
mischief everywhere will be zone. If we lose,
the South's capacity for resistance will be
broken. The Confederacy has ample power
to keep itsplace in Virginia if employed with
energy and consistency, and this is the last
year of the war, whichever wins."
The Richmond Enquirer of the 30th says :
".A..company has been organized with a capi
tal of $10,000,000, of Which $1,500,000 is paid
in. It declines disclosing the condition of the
enterprise, but says the company aspires to
grand results—a fleet at least, and it has now
every prospect of realizing all its purposes."
