The Soldiers' Vote.
When the friends of slavery asked for an
amendment of the Constitution, making ever,
freeman in the country a t.lave hunter, ever
Demneratio orator and editor went to Work
heartily and enthusiastically to secure the
adoption and enforcement of the measure.
When free territory was sought to be degraded
and blighted by the introdiction of the,sloth,
licentiousness and incest irowinguntof the
practices encouraged by those who-upheld
slavery as a Divine institution, DemeOritle
members of Congress, Democratic leaders and
Democratic dupes were alike anxious for the
triumph of the proposition. The nie4t fluke
ant amendments ever made to the*deral
Constitution, were those designed to strength
en politically and socially, the interests of the
slaveholder and barterer, and these amend
ments were engrafted on the policy of the ljteM
made party, fought for by its leaders with
desperate zeal, and carried to enemas 'by
'masses, with all the enthusiasm of !nen 'etrii -
gling in a holy cause. • •
What have the Democratic leaders •to : say'
in support of the amendments proposed to to
made to the Constitution of Pennsylvania, el
of which are designed to promote •the inter
ests of free institutions? What have the
Democratic orators and editors to utter hi
advooacy of the amendment proposing to ex
tend the elective franchise to the soldiers?
Not a word—not a syllable? If these amen=
=tents contemplated the introduction of negto
slavery into Pennsylvania—if any or all of
them were proposed to strengthen, the politi
cal prestige of that institution—if the object
was to make a slave-hunter of every freeman
and use the free cities of this Commonwealth
as pens for the safe-keeping and Fiala of men,
women and children, the Democratic press
would ring with argunients in their favor,
and Democratic Orators froth and foam in
their efforts to prove the divinity and justice
of such measures. But mark, when others
besides those who have" investments in human
flesh, are to be served. When the rights 442 d
the elective franchise of citizenship are to he •
assured to those fighting in the defence'of the
government—rights which such as these pos
sessed before they entered the army, and
which they never dreamed of surrerideri4
when they took up arms to maintain the rm.:
tional anthority—the Democratic leaders, in
stead of supporting the preposition for WO
purpose, treat the: whole •subject with indif r
ference, and are even secretly at work to del
feat its adoption at the ballot-box. We need
no stronger facts than these,-
,that: the Demo.
cratio leaders are corrupt and unmindful of
their duty to their country.' The men who
are false to their countrinieu :engaged in a
bloody strife for the suppressidn of a wicked
rebellion, are also recreant to their country:
and if it would pay, they would also be false
to their God!
—We need not comment further on these
facts. . The man who quibbles to create an
opposition to the enfranchisenier4;of the sol
dier, as the great majority of the Democratic
leaders do, is of course the friend rand ally
the traitors in arms. The man who hesitates
openly and frankly to support the cause co
the soldiers, is no friend of the cause of his
An Absurd Copperhexd Vanaidi
If we were to measure the ignorance of the
Copperhead cliques, by thkibsurd means re
sorted to by the leaders for their contiol,..wc
should regard those composing, such mint*
nations as the most worldly benighted and
eeMented creatures on God's fodtstOol. For
Inatome, such sheets as the Bedford Gafelle
assort that the object of the' amendment ex
tending the elective franehise to the soldier,
is to enfranchise the negro—toinvest the negro
with powers and privileges, he.did not enjoy
before he went int, the army. The end aimed
at by this plea is to arenas the prejudices , 'of
the white citizen; while the object sosgtitito
be gained is to degrade the whits soldier.. The
amendment to the Coristitition on 'this Sub
ject does not seek to create eitizemi-40,:*
propose to guarantee any right to nnyooliipg•
which he did not possess before he entered
the army. What is really aimed at isle pro
tect from destruction the rights and the fran
chises of the white man who has 'the courage
to take up arms for the defenoe of the. Gov
ernment. This 'the 'Copperhead 'leaders
thoroughly understand, but if they cii4, de
grade the white man by their uses of
negro, the attempt will be made. The trick is
certainly worthy of the object.. But like the
efforts of the Copperhead leaders to defeat the
struggles of the soldier for the maintenance
of the national honor, it will fail at the bal
let-box and on the battle-lield. The . oleetive
franchise hi the free voices of freionen at
hoMe, will be cordially extendsd to the a 4.
dier—and the soldier:on the battle4o,l,o
so vindicate the exercise of. that franchise its
to render it potent hi'liaatOrth against traitors?

There are now thousands of men in the
national army, who, when they volunteered,
did so with the knowledge that they were
making business sacrifices which could never
be repaired, and that they were depriving their
'amities of comforts which could never be re
stored. Animated by a noble and a patriotic
motive to serve their„hountry,the men who thus
vent forth to batte for their cidiernbient,
sunk individtiatinteiests for the benefit of the
rational good. While men were thus placed
n peril, it was believed that the nation' was
Icing Ear removed from danger. Such a faith
eas sufficient to insp;re the courage of a true
nen. Yet how does this noble action con
trast with the course of those who, at home,
tre bitterly.engaged in an effort to embarrass
the Government—to destroy'its credit—to ef
fect its influence, and in every way
contribute to the success of a base conspi-.
racy. Occasionally ;we allude to the fact
that there are; enemies of the Qovernment in
the free States, more hitter and malignant
;than those in the rebel army, and the allnaion
elicits the denials and the reproaches of
those who are either lukewarm in their at ;
tachin'ents to-the country or who are actually ;
guilty of the crimes to which we allude. Let
usliet be mistaken. Let those who ;are in the
army, battling nobly for the old Union and
the old flag, remember that their friends at
home are surrounded by like dangers. We
have our enemies here—here where the Gov
ernment is supposed to bastrong and invinci
ble---enemieit who are only waiting for a fa
;finable opportunity to threw off the disguise
and fiercely inaugurate a fight with loyal men.
-What a contrast does this present for the con
templation of the world? 'And may God help
a land and a people thus threatened by open
enemies and environed by , secret foes.

authoritiee.that Heiidersan was 'attacked by
rebels, from one hundred and fifty to seven
hundre - d stroig, an& fretting was going on.
Our gunboatsimmediately left for Henderson.
The Union troops which went to Henderson
on Wednesday to shoot two guerrilla prison
eres retaliation for the murder of a Union

Certain distinguished citizens made great ex
articulate prevent the execution. Gen. Ewing
postponed it. - -
The citizens of Henderson left the place in
large numbers before the attack began. Per
sons who left later report the guerrillas in the
city and Union troops-in-line of battle await

gunboats would save the . 11Tnion. troops from
