The Attempt to Burn New York City, as
Viewed by thaDemocratie Press of New
York State. '
The New York _Herald, since the discovery
and defeat of the plot to burn New York city,
has been attentively watching the tone of the
Democratic press, and after a fair scrutiny of
the sentiment expressed in relation to that
diabolical affair by the newspapers in question,
the 'Jerald is of the opinion that two-thirds
of the controllers of these presses were in the
secret of the intended incendiarism. Some of
the editors of these journals openly declare that
they "knew all about the burning," and that
the danger is even now a l s great as it ever was,
of committing the princilial cities of the North,
by the aid of traitor torches, to the flames.
This is a beautiful state of affairs. Of course
this knowledge was conveyed through the
medium of the lodges of the Sons of Liberty
or Knights of the. Golden Circle. Truly we
have an enemy in our own midst, when the
peaceful homes of our free cities are constant
ly in danger of a rebel incendiary, encouraged
to his hellish deeds by the influence of the
important Decision by the Attorney Gen,
eral of Ponvisylvanla.
Hon. Wm. M. Meredith, Attorney. General
of the State, rendered his opinion to-day, de
ciding that Hon. Alexander King was legally
elected Judge of the 16th Judicial Dis
trict, composed of the counties of Frank
lin, Fulton, Bedford and Somerset, and that
he was entitled to his commission. It will
be remembered that the return judges of Bed
ford county deliberately threw out the en
tire, soldiers' vote of that county, by which
fraud it was claimed that Mr. Kimmel had re
ceived a majority for President Judge.
Attorney General Meredith's opinion in this
case, is spoken of as one of the ablest and
fairest ever delivered, alike controlled by the
facts in the case and aiming to vindicate the
rights of all concerned in the issue. The
case, indeed, is so clear that it is confidently
predicted Mr. Kimmel will never attempt to
contest the decision of the Attorney General.
PRE PRICE OF COAL IN PITTSBURCI.-A reso
lution was introduced, and after a thorough
discussion, passed both branches of the city
council of Pittsburg, "to use all' possible
moans consistent with the interests of the
city, to bring down the price, and directing
the wharf-masters to, remit all wharfage dues
incurred by parties in supplying coal for the
use of Pittsburgers, who shall sell the same at
ten cents per bushel, or any lower price.
There is something significant in the action
of the municipal authorities of the second
city in the Commonwealth. It is justified by
every principle, of equity—as due to the con
sumers who have too long been subject to Ahe
extortion of the speculator. Indeed, the time
has arrived when it becomes the duty of every
municipal government in the State to do
something for the protection of the poor man
while he is laboriously seeking the necessaries
SourazßN Piraroxism. A Southern refugee
says that the true secret of Jeff. Davis' com
plaint of the absence of the rebel soldiers
from duty is that two-thirds of the whole
army are required to keep the Sonthern peo
ple quiet. Every city, town and village is a
military post, and has its knot of officers,
averaging from two to six in number, and its,
squad of men, from twenty to a hundred.
The ostensible purpose of these posts is that
they are for the commissary and quartermas
ters departments, to get supplies and, ma
terial for the army; but they in reality enforce
the merciless conscriptions of Jeff. Davis,
scrutinize the errands of travelers, and keep
the people "patriotic." All this Jeff. well
knows, therefore his whinings are utterly

editorial control of the Cartridge Box, literally

that his "time is tip." As a soldier, this may
be so—but will Mc allow ,us (an old friend
whom he must recognize by the familiarity
thus indulged) to write that his other time ,
that time of glorious usefulness for which God
has fitted him by his brilliant endowments,
will now just commence. After having faith

So the joint resolution was rejected.
The joint resolution had previously passed
the Senate by two-thirds. Ninety-five mem
bers ' , jolted for it in the House, but as one
hundred and eighteen was the constitutional
two-thirds of the vote east, the House failed
to concur with the Senate, and the resolution
fell. In Barclay's Constitutional manual we
find that "two-thirds" is construed by both
branches of Congress to mean "two-thirds of
the members present" In examining the
vote in the House of the 15th of June, on this
important question, it will be found that
among those absent there were at least eight
Who,' had they' been present, would have
given it their support . while, among the sixty
six in the negative column, we recognize the
names of some who always entertained the
opinion that this great proposition was right
in itself, but who were driven from their con
scientious convictions by party apPeals. The
new House of Representatives, which' will
contain more then two-thirds friendly to the
Administration of the Federal GoVernment,
would cordially sustain the Senatein passing
this important joint resolution.. But we be
lieve and hope that the', late verdict of the
people in favor of Mr. Lincoln, the:.cdne.es
sions of the'rebels theniselves that slavery is
dying or dead, And the resultsof our military
experienCe, will constrain a Sufficient number

instruments in His hands, have saved us from
The future is full of overshadowing respon

we remain true to the great cause of Human
rights, and firmly uphold those brave men,
whose sagacity, in the dark hours of our
struggle, forecast, with the propheiic eye, the
dim future, and pointed the right course—who,
casting aside self, had the courage to startle

We can only be safely guided in the future
by the experience of the past. - And while a
retrospective view shows much to avoid, how
much have we to i admire! What bright ex
amples of far-se,eing statesmanship ; what
bravery in pressing home unwelcome truths
to the debauched conscience of the nation;
what manly firmness in, patiently railing un
til a people besotted with slavery should un
derstand Isuch words of wisdom as these,
which we quote from the report of the Secre
tary of War, December, 1861:
"It has become a grave question for deter
mination what shall be done with the slaves
in the advance of our troops into Southern
territory; = a^ shall they be armed by
their masters, placed in the field to fight
agi inst us, or shall their labor be continually
employed in reproducing the means for sup
porting the armies of rebellion? * *
War even between independent: nations is
made to subdue the enemy, and all that he
possesseki is put in jeopardy. This being
true of independent nations at war, it follows
that rebels, who are laboring by force of arms
to overthrow a government, justly bring upon
themselves all the consequences of war, and
provoke the destruction merited by the worst
"That government would be false to na
tional trust, and would justly excite the ridi-
Mile of the civilized world, that would abgain
from the use of 'any efficient means to*pre
serve its own existence, or to overcome a re
bellious and traitorous enemy by sparing or
protecting the property of those who are wag

clearly right to ARM SLAVES *
as it . is to use gunpowder taken from the en
emy. The right is unquestionable. by the.
laws of war. * * * What to do
with that species of property time and cir

manner to suppress the insurrecticn and re : -

arms and perforining efficient military service,
it is-the right and duty of the Government to
arm, equip and employ their services against
the rebels. * * * But in what

Government, * they should

Aud by that sign we conquered ! The

comprehensive grasp of public affairs, which
were far advanced from the era of the day on
which they were announced. He has borne

A fire occurred to-day, said to be the work
of incendiaries, in the lumber yard of Ogden
& Co., in Hubert street. One third of a block
of buildings was destroyed. Among the suf
ferers were a number of families who occu
pied the dwellings adjoining.
The loss is•estimated at $1.00,000. Phos

The mahogany lumber yard of Messrs. Og
den & Co , which was almost totally destroyed
by fire at an early hour this morning, occu
pied about • one-third of the block on Wash
street, between Hubert and Beech, and ex
tended through to West street, occupying the
whole of the block on Hubert street, between
Washington and West streets. • The yard was
filled with an immense stock of mahogany and
valuable lumber, the value. of which is esti
mated at $150,000. The fire was discovered
at about the centre of the yard by Sergeant
Farrell, of the Fifth precinct, while patrolling
the precinct, who immediately gave the alarm.
The firemen antipolice were promptly on
hand, but owing to the inflammable nature of
the materials the flames spread with the most
fearful- rapidity until was feared that the
whole neighborhood would fall a prey to the
devouring element. The flames lighted up
the sky for a considerable distance, and were
visible all over the • city. An immense crowd
gathered at the scene of the conflagration, and
the most intense excitement prevailed for a
time. Great apprehensions were entertained
for the surrounding buildings, which had they
caught fire, would have caused an almost in
calcuable amount of damage. After a time,
however, by the untiring exertions of the fire
men, and the copious streams of water launch
ed upon the fire by the numerous steamers,
the flames were subdued and finally extin
guished, but not before a great portion of the
stock on board had been destroyed.
