The Struggle. for:the Government.
After an exciting find' laborious , politic;al .
campaign of many long weeks, the great
struggle for the Periaanency of the Goiern
went and the vindication of its acts in the ef
fort to crash rebellion, will end at the ballot
box to-clay. The occasion of such an election
is one of -momentous interest. No past Pres
idential xleation was fought with like import
ance,fil lilt.. y' ivill'.be` decided either our
eternal , i ai: a nation Of free common
t - only -because united in the
strong bonds of a National Union, or whether
we shall ' ease to exist as a great government
and sink into the divisions of petty States
each , unable to defend , itself, and all
likely, sooner_ or later, to be gathered under
the rule of some strong, despotic hand. If
the election to-day is decidectagainst the party
supporting the Government, of course the very
order and the existence:of that Government
will be changed. But we do not believe that
such. a result will overtake us. We believe
that we will achieve a triumph at the polls,
which will pub to rest, forever, all doubt of
the power of the Government to enforce its
laws, and all question as to its authority to
deal roughly with traitors.
---: We cannot let this opportunity pass
without a proper acknowledgment of the ser
vices of those at least who have been proud-.
Rent within our own midst, in contributing to
the certainty of victory. John J. Shoerriaker,
Chairman, and J. Vi! , ' Wiestling, Secretary of
the County dominittee, with . the individual
members thereofjAhave been laborious and ac
tive, ' , earnest mid 'faithful in the discharge of
their duties. Col, A. J. Herr, Hon. John C.

Macclowell, Rev. A. Wieting, Middletown, G.
S. Bowman, Millersburg, John W. Simon
ton, Peter. Myere, and Daniel G.' Miller,
Conewago, did good service as speakers, and
met the issues of the campaign boldly and
ably on.the stump.- The Repulican Invincibles,
however late their organization, did effective
service. Indeed, we bear ;full , testimony to
the faithfulness of all who love their country.
All did their duty, and all will deserve a like
share in the victory which we believe will
crown' pur r banners and save our country
when the polls close to-day.
A Reference for the Time.
The Rev. Col. Moody, who recently •ad
dressed the people of Pittsburg in the course of
his speeches called upon the audience to unite
with him in singing the following stanzas, so
well appointed for the time, although written
by Dr. Watts in the last century:
Go with our armies to the fight,
And be their Guardian God;
In vain Confederate powers unite
Against thy lifted rod.
Our troops shall gain a wide renown,
Bynum assisting hand;"
Thy power will bid the traitors see,
And make the loyal stand.
For.right is right while God is God,
And right the day must win;
To l doubt Timid:be disloyalty,
To Wet Would be, sin.

Ont. Relations - with England. '
From the.' days when Cardinal Woolsey

the world, iff;tlle hope of creating an interest
in favor pf%lfimaelf, by whioh he. could'
elevate4 lo he Papil chair, thoglasies
of Gretit r ißiiiairtia4e played the pat of
dropperibithe community of nations: Theis
has not been a quarrel in Europe since the
British left off eating acorns and drinking
viater, and Confined thenaielvVi : w beef
and brown stout, that the English government
has not either been connected with its origin_
or the cause of its prolongation. And what
ever the strife,-whether it is for liberty in Po-
and, life .in Hungary, . territory in Germany,
freedom in 141 y, religion in Turkey, the
„Englieh are sere to Make a commercial que*
. tion of the Mood Which - flows, inuf'-manufao-
tare the misery of . nations into bank of Eng
land notes. !or. do these r people confine
themselves alone, to Europe. Their notice,
their avarice and their disposition to interfere
n the affairs of an nations when intervention
becomes profitable. and when the belligerents
at issue are unable to protect themselves,have
carried their deceits and given scope to .their
operations among almost all races, Civilised;
barbarous and savage. British interference
with the internal trade and foreign comin'erce
of China, resulted in the shedding of more
blood in the celestial Empire thaunow courses
in the veiris'of men acldowledging, with lqyal
sincerity, the rule of Victoria. British en_
creachments and encouragement of jealoasy
among the satraps and chiefs of India, result
ed' in wars of the most fiendish character ;
wars in which women and children were 'bill-
tally murdered, and yet Englishmen regarded
these as valorous and brave who led the way
through such deluges of blood, simplybecanse
new markets were .created for'•British Farm-
faCtures, and new sources of supply opened
for the British exchequer. The policy of the
ruling aristocracies of Amid Britain, has
been, ever s - ince the fprialibn of their'GOvern
ment, to turn the affairs of the world:to their
glory and emolument. And what is most
strange„ they have succeeded. Themselves
representing a tyranny of the worst order,
they have managed to destroy every rival, that
has heretofore crossed their paths as compe
titors in commerce and nationality, by 'raising
the hue and cry of the world against them, or
by forting alliances ostensibly to curb 'au
imaginary tyrant but really to crush some
troublesome rival of Great Britain. This was
the spirit which led the British GOver , nment
to seek the overthrow of the first Napoleon.
When they could not attach the Corsican to
their interests the British aristocracies formed
interests and allianees against him' ich
fatally produced his destruction. •
-We might go on enumerating the bin
tality, venality and faithlessness of the Eng
lish to all nations, but in one sense they do
not interest the American reader; any further
than'the relation of acts of atrocity is worthy
the indignant attention of men of all countries.
What ingot ,interests us now, is the attitude
which Great Britain occupies in herrelations
toiour country. From the hour of the signing
of the' treaty of Ghent the friendahip of the
rating, classes of Great' Brittin,,pg,..t446otae.

insincere and worthless: There' ,has nol
b4en an hour or day, - „since 4 the es.
ptilsiou of Ake British armies from
our shores; that - the British aristocracy have
not been engaged in some machination to im
pair either our system of Goyerriment or des
trOy our nationality. The ruling.classes of
England have always been jealous of American
development and greatness, tiery State ad
ded ,to the Union has been" a thorn in the
side of the British:. aristocracy. r • Every new
development of our agricultural and mineral
resources, has excited the envy andthe enmity
of the commercial and manufacturing classes
of England. ' Oar improvements in the me: ,
chanic arts, which have elicited the admira 7 .!
tion of real genii:is .in other countries, have
only excited the taunts and the raillery of the
English, who in their rage at being unable -to
equal us, sought to depreciate our superiority

tight. In order to 'embarrass us; -the British
parliament let loose the'slavesheld'in certain
of the English PrOvinces.' However great p...4t,
sacrifice was then to English cupidity, it was:
calculated to produce seism and hatred in
the American . Union, by intenAifying the abO- 1
lition feeilig• of ,the Horth, and exasperating
the slaverypassion of the south. And in this
hclpe, to make a brief- statement of history,.
the British Government "succeeded. That'
Government was at the bottom of the can*
which led to the, rebellion in the United States.
Its emissaries filled the two great sections now
at war. Exeter Hall fanned the flame in the
north—while the scions of BritiSh axis
to'eracy, travilling in the Sonth, were
constantly pouring into the ears of :the slave
mitster;notions of his superiority over the:
,; /, 41gar , masses of "the ‘ Ncirth. All this had
i n guenb . e, until at length that influence 'was,
p - rtially instrumental in produCing a collision
between the slave States and the Go4ern-'
ment. England hoped that - collision would
result in the overthroy , of this great' 'Repub
lip When rebellion was preoipitated,
the British Goveinnient declared- itself nen
tral; but when the aristocracies , of -England
discovered'that the deli.) States - were unable
to cope with the Federal, power of the ,na
tion they sought to, destroy," England recog
nized the Confederacy as a belligerent, and
in the very freshness of her neutrality on;
conraged the building of pirate vessels' to
pry upon American shipping, or run' the'
blockade of Seathern : ports to fttu#sli the
Southern imitore with the supplies necessary.

to rele a se th eprisoners at Camp Douglas, and

to warrant, , the arrest of •these- htuadrecl , eon
spiratore; it•was deemed necessary to strike at
once such. ones as were unquestionably
sonable. "Captain Nelion, of the city police,
was dispatched to the house of Dr. Edwards
to arrestfOOL Vincent Marmadnke, brother of
the rebel General. at the same time a de
tachment of military probeeded to the Bich-.
mond House, and captured the rebel Col. G.
St. Leger, Greenfield Morgan, Adjutant Gen
and J. Shanks, an escaped rebel prisoner.
B. S. Morris, a man noted for his hatred' to
the North, was also 'arrested. They are all
now in. Camp Douglas. In a tliapatCh te Gen.
Cook, this morning, Col. Sweet says: "I have ,
complete prikof of his having assisted Shanks,
the rebel prisoner,• to escape, and of hie plot
ting to release the prisoners at this camp."
Meantime another detachment of military
invested the residence of Charles Walsh near
Camp Douglas. His house was entered and
a portion of the contents taken 'to the camp.
Captain Cantrell arid a private named Charles
Traverse, both belonging to.the rebel service,
were there, and were arrested as spies. In
Walsh's house were found two hundred stand
of arms, with all the necessary ammunition,
and two cart-loads of large revolvers, loaded
and capped ready for use.
In regard to the arrest of Walsh, Colonel
Sweet says he has evidence enough against
hfin to insure his swinging for tieason.
Sweet has proof in his possession that it was
the plan of the conspirators and home traitors
to;reletise the rebel prisoners•'at Camp Doug
