FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 2;, 1864.
Our Professional Men
In the notices made yesterday, of the pro
fessional men of Harrisburg, who are adver
tisers in the TELsonspEr, by an oversight en
tirely unintentional, and which' has over
whelmed us with mortification, the names of
two of our most prominent young lawyers
were omitted. We hasten to make the amende
Joshua M. Wiestling, office in Walnut St.,
near Second, is one of the most indefatigable
and successful young counsellors at the bar of
this Judicial District, and has earned a well es
tablished reputation for the zeal with which he
devotes himself to his clients, and the fairness
of his deportment before a court and jury.
Mr. Wiestling is constantly increasing his
practice, as well as daily achieving personal
popularity, for the interest and patriotism
with which he devotes himself to the welfare
of the community in which he lives, as well as
to the honer and glory of the country of
which he is so promising a citizen.
Eugene Snyder, office in Third street, a few
doors west of Market, is another of our able
and affable young attorneys, a man of thor
ough business habits, conscientious in the
service of his client, and unwavering in his de
fence of. the: right when its interests are con
fided to his trust. Mr. Snyder is largely en
gaged in collecting military claims, a practice
in which he has no superior for ability and
success. We know of no young man in the
legal profession who has pursued a fairer
course, and, with so little pretension, rests his
claim to recognition on sounder' ability or
greater professional skill.
Finish the War.
The President states what is warranted by
the facts when he declares that the country
has the capacity to maintain the war indefi
nitely, if need be. So far from exhausting
our population or %wealth, the war only
subtracts from the amount of their in
crease, leaving them still positively augment
ed. The nation is to-day much poorer than
she would have been without the war, yet she
is richer in:people and property than when it
began. The cost of maintaining the Union
does not, great as that cost is, take one life or
one cent from her absolute capital, but only
a fractional part of the interest on that capital.
Immigration alone far more than supplies the
waste of men by war, while the natural in
crease ofpopulation continues.
This view does not lessen the gigantic ca
lamity of the strife, in its moral and political
aspects, and the incalculable distress it car
ries to myriads of homes. But this demon
strated power of the country imposes a fresh
obligation, because it shows the ability to
bring the war to a speedy close. The work
of re-establishing the supremacy of the Gov
ernment has been retarded by apprehensions.
of exhausting or unduly diminishing the re
sources of the country, and by.a greater at
less want of confidence in the popular willing-,
taw, ..-.oocurceFflit 4%06 - drawn
upon to the extent necessary to make a swift
end to the•rebellion.
No such apprehensions, and no such lack of
confidence, can now be excused. Whatever
in men or money is required to finish the war
• can be had, and will be gladly acquiescedin, for
that result. The country is abundantly 'able
and is eager to furnish troops and means to
overwhelm -the military despotism of the. Con.
federacy, and crush "the shell" without iiirther
delay. We trust that, looking at tha resour
ces of this republican empire, and at the en
thusiasm and almost unanimity of the popu
lar decision for the war, Mr. Lincoln will
fearlessly recommend and the Congress adopt
such measures as will place the early . destruc
tion of the rebellion among the most certain_
and most patent of.facts.
The North American Insurance Company
Daring the last two or three years this old
and well known company have been extend
ing their business in the interior, of the State
of Pennsylvania, and have already laid a good
foundation for fire and inland bPsiness
throughout the Commonwealth.
Incorporated as they were in the year 1794,
by the Legislature of Pennsylvania, and up
Ima the year 1862, having agencies only in two
or three prominent points in the State, their
ciaims for business throughout - the State
whence their authority came, seem well 6:kund
ed, and hence, some three years since, they
established a central State agency at the seat..
o; Cloyernment, through which their agency
business is transacted and where policies . - are
issued. • • . -
Since the organization of this company in
1792, now over seventy years, their success
has been very marked, having' now capital
and surplus of over $1,600,000, and during
which. time they, have paid losses amounting
to:over seventeen millions of dollars. • -
InPhiladelphia, where the management of
this company is beet known, it enjoys a well.
deserved ,popularity, as the result of long tried
and faithful services, and large liberality in
the adjustmenfof losses; the officers, Arthur
G. Coffin, Esq., President, and Charles . Platt,.
Esq., Secretary,l as well as the board of direc
tors, being well and famlliarily known, some
of whom have given their services to the cor
poration for over forty years. -
The State agent' f the Insurance Compa
ny of. North America, Mi. William Buehler,
gives his whole time to the details of these
agencies. throughout Pennsylvania, and to
whom applications for new agencies should
b e a ddreped In this community Mr."l3neli
ler does not need newspaper endorsement.
Respected for his etrict - integrity, and known
as-erfaithfrd-and indefatigable inasinesrAitin,
to his connection with the Insurance Couipa-:
ny of North American, as much as the repu
tation of that corporation, -must-we attribute
its popularity onteide of
IM==t - a
It will be remembered. that Congress set
apart a large portion of the public domain, to
be app,ortioned among the several States
with thOrbject of promoting the education
of farmers in a scientific as well as.a practiCal
knOwledge , of - agriCidtn.re. Last winter a
great contest was had among the representa
tives of the different institutions of learning
as to which was entitled to a share or the
whole of this land. Without referring to the
merits of the arguments advanced in support
of these claims, we are constrained to notice
the fact that great complaint exists through
out the CoramOxiWerilth as to the manner of
disposing of these lands. We deem it only
fair that we should give a hearing, to the
most prominent journal among those illuding
to this subject, The Pittsburg Gazette' thris
emphatically refeis to this transaction:
Congress, as our readers are aware, some
time since donated nearly 800,000 acres of
land to this State, to be devoted to the estab
lishment of one or more Colleges for the edu
cation of the people, with an agricultural
department; and the Governor, the Surveyor
General and the Auditor General, by an act
of the legislature, were appointed a committee,
and invested with power to receive the muni
ficent gift. A clause in this act empowered
them to sell any of these land warrants, if
found advahtsgeons, and the interest - of the
money (it having been invested in State or
United Statei securities) paid over, for the
time being to the Fiiim School in Centre
• Last winter, none of the land having%een
sold, and there being a greit many projects
before the legislature for the permanent dis
tribution of the fund—which, if the land were
sold, would amount to near a million of dol
lars—a bill was
,introduced into the Senate,
and passed there in Coiximittee of the Whole,
ordering that none of the land should be dis
posed of until further legislation. The bill,
owing to factious opposition at the close of the
session, did not pass; but all the votes taken
indicated unmistakably the desire that no
sudden' distribution or 'sale should be made of
the land, but that it should. all remain in
static quo until the meeting of this winter.
Notwithstanding this, advertisements were
obscurely inserted a few weeks since, in one
or two papers only, stating that bids would be
.received . for thpse lands, and 'We leUrn that
barely three Or four bids were put in, the ex
pectation among the knowing ones being that
they would have been opened and The whole
'awarded on the 2d instant; Fortunately, the
sickness of the Auditor General prevented the
accomplishment of , the object evidently in
tended—the sale of these lands at a low figure
'to harpies who fancied they had chanced on a
good thing. '
An effort is now making among the 'mem
bers of the legislature tO prevent the sale of
the lands until the legislature meets and has
time to act on the subject. The sale ought to
net at lehst 51,000,000. to the Agricultural
College,. and if the proper public notice is
given of the sale, there can be no doubt that.
'sum will be - realized. We trust that no fur
ther attempt will be made to dispose of-the
The Provost Marshal of the XlVth Con
The Juitiata Register, a fierce and intoler
ant copperhead organ, thus handsomely and
justly refers to Captain William H. Patterson,
the• lately appointed Provost Marshal of the
XlVth Congressional District:
APPOINTED. —On Friday last, Captain Wm.
,H. Patrerson, of this county, was appointed
Provost Marshal for this(the 14th)Congresslon

•his good luck. There is no man in the Re
publican party in this county more justly en
titled to that position than Captain Patterson.
AnA b4sides, he has hid large, business ex
perience for a man ofhis age; he will manage
.the affairs of the office with °system, and see
that the business is fairly and honestly trans
acted. In future drafts the citizens .of this
county will have at the head Of the enrollment

will act fairly and impartially, irrespective of
party. Captain Patterson is alio sociable and
agreeable in his manners, and persons having
