Speaker Cessna and Governor Johnson, of
HARRISWErIig, March 10, 1863.
The name of the Speaker of the Pennsylva
nia House of Representatives (John Cessna)
was inserted a few days since as Vice President
of a meeting to receive Governor Johnson, of
Tennessee, at Harrisburg. The Speaker of the
Senate (Geo. V. Lawrence) was one of the Re
ception Committee, and the matter gave rise
to some comments, which has led Mr. Law
rence to address a letter to - Mr. Cessna, in
which •he says:
"Your name wait not there (among the Vice
Presidents) with your consent. You stated to
me that you desired that your name should
not be placed on the list of officers, and re
quested me to see the chairman of the com
mittee of arrangements and say to him that
you did not wish your name to appear in that
connection. I did so, and he informed
that he would erase it. In the haste of organi
zation he neglected to do so, and hence it is
published. Yours truly,
"GEORGE V. LAWRENCE."
Remarks. —lt is certainly a great misfortune
that "in the haste of organization" the Aboli
tion managers should have done Mr. Cessna
the great injustice of retaining his name upon
the list of officers in opposition to his wish to
have it erased. But we believe Mr. Cessna was
present at the meeting when the officers were
announced, and might then have withdrawn it
if he had been very anxious not to appear in so
egitivocal a position. After it was published
in the Telegraph he had a fate chance to an
nounce his disapprobation of the use that had
-been made of him, as well as his disapproval
of the meeting. He did neither. He tacitly
gave his approbation to both, and it is too late
now to ask us to believe that he is altogether
innocent. In our opinion he is endeavoring to
creep out through a very small hale. Having
voted to give the use of . the Hall to Governor
Johnson, having been present at the meeting
among the list of whose officers his name ap
pears, having suffered it to be published with
out remonstrance, he should have the spirit to
Maintain the position and not stnitici himsel'
by offering the lame excuse Mr. Speaker Law
retie° Volunteers in his behalf. We would re
spectfully inquire of Mr. Cessna whether he
disapproves the object and spirit of the meet
ing, and -whether we are to consider the above
communication a public avowal of such disap
probation? If it is not to be viewed in this
light, we cannot see in what way it is to ben
efit him—for if he does not disapprave, there
is no reason why he should desire to shirk his
full share of responsibility as au officer.
A Secret Military Organization.
There can be no longer any doubt as to the
character and object of the secret Abolition
organization known as the "Union League."—
It is essentially a military organization, pledged
to an unquestioning support of the administra
tion, even to the extent of using bayonets for
the suppression of public sentiment, in open
meetings of the people, in the press, and, we
have reason to apprehend, at the polls. It is,
therefore, an instrument to foment disorder and
bloodshed and a dangerous foe to Constitutional
liberty. Its existence is an evil; it will soon
become a nuisance, which the public peace and
interest will require to be abated—either by
law, which is supposed to be the embodiment
of public opinion, or, if that should fail, by
other means, which will be less safe, and there
fore not incautiously and not without actual
necessity to be resorted to. We were never less
disposed to speak or act rashly than we are
this moment—never more convinced of the
danger and impolicy of seeking unnecessarily
to excite the passions of community or offering
advice that might lead to mischievous results.
We are, on the contrary, more than ever dis
posed to counsel great prudence, extreme mode
oration; not because we do not foresee peril,
but because we do. It is for the reason that
we are in the very presence of danger that we
counsel calmness ; for by calmness and pru
dence can the perils which we see gathering and
thickening around us be best overcome. What
ever measures for the protection of liberty,
person and property we may ultimately be dri
ven to adopt, by the force of circumstances, for
the present wisdom dictates as our best policy
and most potent weapon an appeal to the rea
son, common sense and love of order of our
fellow-citizens of the administration party.—
We must not place ourselves in the wrong by
any premature suggestion or act. So long as
against ourselves the Constitution and the laws
are not perverted ; so long as there is a chance
of obtaining justice at what ought to be the
fountain $f justice, and protection against vi
olence from the arm of the law, so long must
We depend upon them as the surest and best
safeguards against actual or mediated aggres
sion upon our rights, our persons or our pro.
perty. Until they fail us, or until we are clearly
satisfied that the hands in which their admin
istration is lodged will use them as instruments
of oppression rather than protection, we should
not even contemplate a reart to other means.
"Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof"—
and, abiding by the law, as long as the law
performs impartially its legitimate functions,we
shall be the stronger when driven by necessity
—if that time shall ever arrive—to use force
against force and repel violence by violence.—
In that case we shall have right on our side,
and we shall conquer ; for, remember, though
there may be odds and vantage against us, he
who contends in a just quarrel is thrice armed.
If there has heretofore been a question as
to the military organization of the Union League
there can exist none now. The Telegraph ad
mits that "the Union Leagues are to take the
place of the armed patrols and provost guard
in enforcing the draft," &c., and the Cleveland,
Ohio, Abolition organ says they are designed
to "counteract the insidious efforts of the Cop
perheads"—what these "insidious efforts" are
we know not—that the Order is to be "of a
quasi military character for the instruction of
its members In the manual and school of the
soldier"—that "the places of meeting are to
be known as barracks," and that "it is to be a
mutual arm of defence against traitors at home
and in the army."
There is no lack of evidence that the League
is a military organization—a secret military
organization, and therefore both illegal and
dangerous. his not such an organization as
public opinion should tolerate, because, being
above the law and in defiance of it, with no
restraint but in its own will, it may be perver
ted to the most dangerous and bloody purposes.
We do not fear it, but we deprecate and protest
against it as an engine of evil. We warn com
munity against it, and we warn the League
itself that, if it oppresses it will be oppressed,
if it shed innocent blood it•will be quenched in
* A Third Party.
Indications seem to appear here and there
over the country of an attempt to form out of
the broken and disintegrated ranks of the Ab
olition party, in conjunction with certain dis
affected persons in our own, another and a
third political organization—pretending to dif
fer on the one hand with the war policy of the
administration, and on the other with the
peace tendencies of some of the more radical
Democracy. Against the insidious approaches
of those who are attempting such a movement,
it becomes our duty to give timely warning to
our friends. From this third party, we may
as well at once make up our minds, nothing
can be hoped for which will aid effectually
the ultimate restoration of the Union. There
are two reasons why such a movement will not
and cannot effect the purpose the men who
are engaged in it pretend to desire : Ist, by
dividing at this critical moment the ranks of
the Opposition, it will lessen its strength and
organization and power to oppose and to do
good ; and, 2d, reciprocally, it will give aid
and comfort to the administration, which has
nothing to fear but the power of organized
Democracy, and hopes for nothing so much as
a division among its followers. A third party,
in this view, becomes only a diversion in favor
of the administration—it takes away strength
from the only opposition it can dread.
This third party, headed by such men, for
example, as Thurlow Weed, John Van, Buren
and Andrew Johnson, would go in for an ac
tive and vigorous prosecution of the war ; it
would pretend at the same time to oppose the
policy of the administration, while it would
stand confessedly powerless to restrain or
change that policy. The advocates of such a
party would put all the power and military
force of the country into the bands of the Pre
sident, and weakly cry out against the use of
such power for abolition and usurpation, when
they f t :WI know it would be too late. They
would encourage the administration to go on
in the work of desolation, and then with croco
dile tears be prepared to weep over the result.
They would strengthen the instrument of des
potism, and relieve themselves of the respon
sibility of evil it would be enabled to inflict.
They would pull the string which lighted the
match which discharged the gun, and hold
the gun and the powder and ball responsible
for the effect.
A more specious, idle and unmeaning thing
than such a third party it is difficult to con
ceive. The bare pretense of any real opposi
tion to the administration, which the men who
would enter into ouch an organizrtion might
set up, is utterly futile and ridiculous—too
transparent even for self-deception. We charge
them one and all with the vilest hypocrisy and
prostitution, in attempting, under the plea of
supporting the Constitution and maintaining
the Union, to put power into the hands of those
who are using it, and will use it so long as.
they -have it, to destroy the one and disrupt
the other. The catchwords of "sustaining the
government" and "putting down the rebellion ? "
by which they are endeavoring to foist*them
selves upon the public confidence, are as silly
and empty in their use as if they carne from
Sumner or Thad. Stevens.
If John Van Buren has been bought, or in
a mood of sportive recklessness chooses to
stultify himself over and over again ; if An
drew Johnson, between fear on one side and
the temptations of power on the other, becomes
utterly proselyte beneath the blandishments
of the administration ; if Thurlow Weed, with
conscientious candor, has gone quietly down
the back stairs of Abolitionism, to escape be
ing kicked out of power against his will by
Greeley for a troublesome customer—we are
not to follow their vicarious fortunes ; it is
not necessary we should sympathize too deeply
with their errors or caprices. They can
scarcely confuse the public mind when rightly
held in judgment; they, nor any of their clique,
should be suffered to invade the party we
profess to serve and follow.
The words and counsels of true Democrats
are pleasant and acceptable ; but they are
never heard mingling with the -voices of
greedy and gloating Abolitionists. Those words
and counsels are only of protest—earnest, hon
est protest—net of encouragement, not Beve
-1 ring of instigation or approval. The refuge
of the country we believe to be the future ac
cession to power of the Democratic party; the
strength of that party must depend upon care
ful organization, upon mutual confidence, ab
stinence from all active participation, directly
or indirectly, in all that may tend to aid and
abet an Abolition President and his supporters
in bringing deeper ruin on the country.
An unfortunate affair has occurred at Fair--
fax. Court House. The rebel Capt. Mosely,
one of Gen. Stuart's favorite officers, at the
head of his command, surprised the town on
the morning of the ninth, capturing Gen.
Stoughton and all the men detached from his
command, provost marshal Oscaner, his patrol,
and every horse that Could be found, public
and private. Col. Johnson of the sth N. Y.
Cavalry, made his escape. Gen. Stoughton is
censured for negligence of duty. Gen. Wynd
ham who formerly commanded was under ar
rest on some trivial charge and detained at
Washington—but, on receipt of the news, was
at once released and ordered to duty.
The Union loss in the late unfortunate en
gagement at Spring Hill, near Franklin, Ten

and over 1000 prisoners. The rebels acknow

Our troops are said to have fought bravely,
but they ran out of ammunition and were tiur
rounded, the rebel force against them being
nearly four to one.
Quite a brilliant affair, in which the Seventh
Pennsylvania Cavalry distinguished them
selves, occurred at Unionville, Tennessee, on
the 7th instant. Gen. Minty, in command of
the Seventh Pennsylvania and Fourth Michi
gan, attacked Russell's rebel cavalry and
completely routed them. They captured 21
wagons, 25 tents, 90 mules and horses, all the
camp equipage, two Captains, three Lieu
tenants and fifty-three privates. Two Union
ists were wounded. The rebels lost fifty kil
led and one hundred and eighty wounded.

STATE OF DELAWARE—GOv. CANNON CEN•
SIIRED.—The following preamble and resolu
tion have passed both branches of the General
Assembly of Delaware:
WHEREAS, The Government of the United
States and the several States are governments
of laws, within the limits of which all officials
find their rightful powers, and outside of which
no official has any just claim to power or to
obedience from his fellow citizens : And
whereas, William Cannon, the Governor of this
State, in his inaugural address, has avowed the
false and dangerous.doctrine that reaßonable
ground for suspicion" can justify the arbitrary
arrest and incarcerations in prisons, far re
moved from the district of their residence, of
citizens against whom no warrant has been
issued or charge made according tb law, and
has unblushingly published his approval of
these cruel and lawless arrests of his own fel
low citizens : And whereas, He has thus proved
himself, by this avowal, the weak but willing
tool of Federal usurpation, and a Governor
unworthy the respect and confidence of his
fellow eitizens—one to whom they can look for
no just protection of their rights of person and
of property; therefore,
Resolved, That the doctrines of Gov. Cannon's
address, in regard to arbitrary and lawless
arrests, are, if carried out, fatal to constitu
tional liberty, destructive of the peace and
security of our people, and deserves and

LETTER FROM PRILADELPHIA
Correspondence of the Patriot and Union. •
PHILADELPHIA, March 9, 1863.
If that class of persons who are so eager to
repeat the stale cry of " copperhead," etc.,
put forth by the dusky Administrationists
against the loyal conservatives of the North,
would take the pains to read a little, and study
what they read, those of them who are not
impervious to shame might blush at finding
out what a contemptible business they have
been engaged in. The radicals at Washington
and at Richmond, with their ever-ready lac
queys, are constantly dealing in their fulmen
brutum at all who expose and oppose their
revolutionary designs. The very air is reso
nant with the Pharisaical rantings of our
"silver fork" gentry: of the John Brown
school, and their stereotyped falsehoods
against that great national organization which
is making its influence felt throughout the
country. But they are only committing po
litical suicide, and hurrying their miserable
faction to the grave that already yawns to re
ceive it ; while the ranks of the true friends of
the Republic are daily augmenting. The in
vincible Democracy has outlived the innumer
able horde that have from time to time attacked
it—for Truth is eternal. The Democratic
party stands to-day as it has ever stood: for
the Constitution and the Union, now and forever,
one and inseparable. It has never failed to give
practical prhof of this in peace and in war.
It is the faithful defender of our government,
and when the seceders' rebellion broke out,
the Democracy was found at its post of duty.
Its position at the present time is unchanged.
In this connection let me quote the resolution
adopted by the Democrats in convention as
sembled, in this city, in 1861:
" WHEREAS, The Democratic party, at this
crisis in the history of the country, regards it
proper to declare that the flag of the Union,
the Constitution and the laws, and the rights
of the people to self-government were extended
over the original States and acquired territory
under a Democratic President, Thomas Jeffer
son. That the glory, honor and integrity of
the Union and the flag of the country were
maintained in the last war with England,
under a Democratic President, James Madison.
That nullification and disunion were crushed
out by a Democratic President, Andrew Jack
son. That the integrity of' the Union, a suc
cessful war - and a glorious peace with Mexico,
resulting in the acquirement of the golden
coast on the Pacific, were secured by a Demo
cratic President, James K. Polk. And it fur
ther declares now, that the Democratic party
has. ever been for the Union, the flag, the
country, the Constitution and the security of
the people in their constitutional rights;
"Resolved, Resolved, That the convention pledge the
Democracy to sustain the Government of the
United States and its officers in all constitu
tional acts in carrying on the war against re
bellion, secession and treason; as a 'conse
quence, the peace, unity, stability and the
permanency of the Union of these States; the
sovereignty of the flag over States and Ter
ritories ; the undisputed supremacy of the laws
and the great glory of a common and united
country can only be maintained, secured and
perpetuated by the Democracy and the triumph
of its principles."
These are the sentiments that now animate
that great body of the American people whose
voice is heard against the wicked men who for
ambitious or partisan purposes would bring
the night of everlasting ruin upon our coun
try. The national ally of the rebel traitors is
the crew of disunionists now in office among
us, and it is the mission of Democracy to crush
both. Though it meet with the opposition of
treason-mongers, and of a bigoted administra
tion, it will labor unceasingly in the good work
of restoring the Union as it was, that it may
be handed down to our children as the same
'priceless legacy we received from our iatherS.
The anti-republican teachings of the pre
sent administration were displayed on Friday
evening last at the serenade given to an ex
member of Congress, at the Girard House.
During the address, some valiant " wise
awakes, " not relishing the
their cowardly clique, attempted to create a
disturbance,the only effect of which was to bring
down upon their party additional scorn from
the sensible portion of the community. Last
week, Thomas Swann, formerly Mayor of Bal
timore, delivered, by invitation, a speech to
the Leaguers, but which was so Democratic
throughout that it made the kid glove " rebtt
kers " feel very much as if they had caught a
-Tartar, and the orator was saluted with evident
manifestations of disapprobation from 'his dis

radicals is the fact that no complaint is uttered

THE PRESIDENT'S GUARD
We learn that the President lately held a
levee, and though we are not aware that there
are any rebels near the District of Columbia,
and believe Washington city to be well fortified
and securely defended by an army of more than
30,000 men, we are informed that all who at
tended the levee, in order to get to the White
House, had to pass through the open ranks of
armed men, called The President's Guard. We
commend to the Abolitionists the following
extract (on the John Brown raid) from the
Philadelphia Press, of the 22d October, 1859,
to show the light in which their man Forney
(now Lincoln's dog) viewed our national affair's
before he was taken into the White House and
fed on scraps from the Pres4entys
view of the late occurrences at Harper's
Ferry (says the Press) it is a matter of the
gravest importance that the utmost caution
should be observed by the people and the au
thorities of Washington, as well as the repre
sentatives of all parties in Congress, during
the coming session. This is the Capital of
our Republic. It is situated in a slave region.
It may, in thany respects, be called sacred
ground. It is embalmed with the name of
Washington. Citizens of every State in the
Union come here during the sessions of Con
gress as children of the same family cluster
around the same fireside. It is, in theory and
in fact, the common property of the people.
Every American who visits Washington, feels,
the moment he puts his foot on Pennsylvania
avenue,. that he is at home. He looks upon the
public buildings as, in some respects, his own.
He visits the President and the Heads of De
partment with a feeling that, while they are
entitled to his fullest respect, they are, in some
measure, his servants. Wherever he may go
he sees memorials and mementoes of the spirit
that animated our fathers in the Revolution,
before there were any factions such as now
exist. All aroud him are the evidences of the
spirit of compromise upon which our great fab
ric of free government was founded. Here are
not only colored slaves but colored freemen—
the first happy and contented ; the second in
the enjoyment of all the rights of the white
man except that of suffrage. He beholds, on
the one hand, the monument to Washington,
on the other a monument to Jackson, on
another a monument to Jefferson ; and in the
Capitol he sees the peaceful virtues of Penn
commemorated, while the leading avenues of
the city are named after the States respect
ively. Not only is the South celebrated in the
effigies erected to its public men, but the land
ing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock, as well
as Penn's treaty at Shackamaxon, also illus
trated in durable marble. Whenever Wash
ington city becomes the theatre of embittered
personal controversy ; whenever blood is shed
upon this spot, the days of the Republic are
numbered. Whenever a Northern or Southern
man cannot come here feeling that he is safe
in his person and his property, the knell of
this Union- has been sounded."
