of our own great Commonwealth. The Sena- •

have sought to disparage him. The former is
the first soldier I have seen unwilling to honor
him. Perhaps it is because he served his Nun

change him with inaction, incapacity, and as
lacking the genius of a soldier; but this much
'we do know, that after the memorable disaster
of Bull Run, when the country was panic
stricken, When our army was defeated and de
moralised, he came fresh from victories in
Western Virginia to rescue that army from dis
organization and give confidence to the country
and stability to The government; that after
maturing plans-of campaigns by Ms own native
genius, wide attending as the boundaries of
the Country, they were submitted, to the go
'ferment; and by its approtal he led his
army into the field. And, sir, he took that
army nearer to the spires of Richmond than
has ever since been done. The country also
knows, and.the army testifies, that when re
inforcements were withheld and a •erushing
force was hurled upon him, he struggled
back, sad, in the language even of the

A Conservative Union the Hope of the
There are differences of opinion among' the
conservative men of the country as to the hist
means of restoring the Union. These differ
ences should each in turn be honored with a
hearing. ' One portion contend for the effferee
ment of the laws in the States tfow in rebellion,
another for their temporary aumension; both
advocate these separate ways as the best means
of ultimately restoring the Union. One sanc
tioned the war in the beginning; ' the ether
desired peace. The desire of a restoration is.
00021110t1; the means of obtaining it a matter
of opinion and difference. No one contends
the simple enforcement of law is illegal ; all
reverence and desire to obey the Constitution.
The difference is as to the surest *Mit of
bringing together the alienated sections of the
country and rendering the laws once more of--.
The peace party would trust the issue of
our troubles to mutual comity, to the power of
. self-interest, to those silent agencies of com
merce and intercourse which cannot operate in
time of war; those who favored the war at the
outset accepted the , arbitration of the sword
from the South, thought the enforcement ,of
the laws the best vindication of their worth,
and the clearest solution of the difficulties
which beset us. Both then agreed peaceful
secession a political heresy, and denied the
right of it to the South; both now agree
in'opposition to the administration and the
declared purposes of the war: Both agree in
their Midi-240144i of the Constitution ; both
that in the legislation which has burthened the
war with false issues, and, in disturbing the
operation of the laws at home in peaceful and
loyal sections of the country, the administra
don has flagrantly violated that Instrument.
Both equally repudiate "higher law" and Ab
olition doctrine; but both are equally power
less to stop the war, or change the policy of
the administration. The peace men cannot
have peace; those who sanctioned the war in
the beginning, but are now against the use
which is being made of it, 'cannot alter it one
lot or tittle.
The points of difference—whether it shall be
peace for the 'Union, or war for the Union—
might be easily reconciled by a fair experiment
either way; but now these experiments are im
possible: There is a strong bond of sympathy,
a common ground of agreement, an equal rev
erence for the , Constitution, an equal determi
nation to •ollpose, 'by every lawful means, by
voice and vote, the policy of the administration.
Whatever. differences there are, therefore,
ought not to distract or disturb the harmony
of united action ; and whichever way any
prove itself'best hereafter to restore the Union,
cannot be adopted until power has been 'wrested
from the'handa of those 'who hold it now. To
.effect a consummation so devoutly to be 'wished,
swearing nothing under heaven shall divert it
from the purpose to restore these States to
their origindlTnion, the Opposition must stand
firm -and straight upon goo firet issue against
the administration. It. must harmonize, or

opposition. We want no violence, no inch:-

The HarriAlergUnion Ltague—Presi-
The Union Leaguers of this city have for
their 'President, we think, "the right man in
the right place." We trust that at last this
restless politician, who has been seeking a
Testing place from the time when his locks
were raven until stow when they are bleached
with the frosts of years, has subsided into a
position that will prove satisfactory, and min
gled with an element that he will find conge
nial. We shall not dispute the assertion of
the Worthy President that he " has been an
humble member of the Democratic party for
twenty-five years"—he has said it, and we are
bound to accept the assertion as true ; but we
must plead ignorance to a previous knowledge
of the fact. He must, indeed, have been a
very " humble member," and so profoundly
kept the secret locked in his own bosom that
but few, if any but himself, were cognizant of
it. We have known him a blatant Abolition
ist, boldly and loudly proclaiming the heresies
of that sect when it was disowned and de
nounced by most of his present covenant sago
eiates--when,indeed, it was considered absurd,
if not scandalous, to utter them—when men
shrank from contact with Abolitionism as they
would from pestilence, and stopped their nos
trils against the very atmosphere . which was
tainted by its breath. .If he ever wandered
from'this faith—if he ever deserted the altars
at which he offered his sacrifices and was so
devout a worshiper—if he ever, repentant of
his sins, sought refuge and consolation in the
temple of Democracy—it was our misfortune
to be ignorant of the circumstance. But let
that saes. He is evidently not with us now;
there is a very , wide, a very deep, we fear an
'impassible gulf between us ; but, if he feels
safe on the other side, happy in his position
and his associations, we heartily congratulate
him upon having•at length attained what we
,supposed he comb' never 44p:we—a position
which satisfies his ambition. To Preside over
a body of such distinguished patriots as com
pose the League, men who will know how to
appreciate his talents and be careful to give
his genius full play—to have Bergner always
squat at his ear, as the Devil sat at Eve's, whii
pezing treason—this will be no ordinary grati
fication. Such high distinction coupled with
so much felicity it is permitted to but few to
reach and enjoy. May our heretofore Demo
cratic friend of "twenty-five years" make the
most of his fortune, and revel in the light and
beauty of his new-found sunshine while it
Since the election of Lincoln, who has proved
himself entirely imbecile, and unequal to his
position, the Abolition party seem to have
adopted the plan of filling every office.in their
gift in the same manner. Non-success is a
eufficient recommendation to Command promo
tion for a military commander, and incompe
tency the strongest recommendation for a nomi
nation to any civil office. The nomination for
Mayor in this City is a fair illustration of this
principle. After the unanimous nomination of
General Roumfort for Mayor by the Democra
tic party, the Republicans not having-the man
liness to make a straight-out tight, and put up
one of their own stripe against him, hunted
about the town an entire day to find some re
creant Democrat who would accept their suffra
ges, and finally prevailed over the weakness of
John Till, who, though a follower of all the
isms and new party organizations in the past,
now claims to be what they call a Union Dem
ocrat, which means a soft-shell woolly-head.
Mr. Till is an uneducated man, entirely unfit
ted either by habits of thought, business or
association, to perform the duties of Mayor or
give dignity to the office. His notorious in
competency was doubtless his greatest qualifi
cation in the eyes of the Lincoln worshippers ;
but we have too high an opinion of the intelli
gence of the people of Harrisburg to believe
he will get any considerable number of votes
in this city, and feel assured that Gen. Boum
fort will be elected Mayor by an overwhelming
In. Newark, New Jersey, the woolly-heads

humbug and fraud.
Speech of Hon. Charles L. Lamberton.
We publish this morning the speech of the
Hon. Charles L. Lamberton, of Clarion, deliv
ered in the Senate on the resolution tendering
the use of the Senate Chamber to Andrew
Johnson, of - Tennessee, the so-called Military
Governor of that State, and Ex-Gov. Joseph
A. Wright, of Indiana, for the purpose of de
livering Abolition lectures and sustaining the
unconstitutional and despotic acts of this ad
ministration. The Democratic Senators very
properly resisted the attempt to desecrate the
Senate Chamber for any such partisan purpose,
and Mr. Lamberton, on that occasion, delivered
the bold and pointed speech which we take
pleasure in laying before our readers. We
bespeak-for it a careful perusal, as well on ac
count ofithe doctrines so courageously enforced
in the face of an overwhelming and defiant
majority, as in; behalf of its author, who on
this as on previous occasions has exhibited the
courage and firmness in defence of Democratic
principles which entitle him to the thanks of
the Democracy of the entire State.
TRH aristocrats of the League are making a
Strong appeal to the "Working Men" to support
Sohn Till for Mayor. It is wonderful how gra
cious the aristocrats become to the "Working
Men" every time they want their votes. It is
their favorite plan of humbugging the sap
heads. Let us see how much sincerity there
is in their professions of respect for the per
ions and desire to promote the advancement
and interests of the "Working Men." They
have the National and State patronage in their
hands. They have had hundreds of appoint
ments at their disposal. Take the list of names
of persons who have been appointed to lucra
tive places by the big-wigs at Washington and
Harrisburg—the President, the Departments,
the Governor of the State, with whom the
Union. Leaguers who are now courting the
"Working Men" have influence, and see how
many "boat builders," how many mechanics
of any calling, how many laboring men have
been recipients of official favor. How many
“Working Men" have been appointed Paymas
ters, Commissaries, Provost Marshals, Tax As
sessors and Celleotors—or, to come down a peg
lower, how many have been made clerks, or;
got any office higher than Messenger or Run
ner? John Till, the "boat builder" is an
admiral trap to catch gulls—it his a, tempting
bait for fools to swallow. How many of that
sort will the big-wigs catch ? We shall see.
The Abolitionists were too crafty for Till's
common sense." He was too weak to resist
flattery. They told him he would make an
excellent Mayor, that he was fit for the office,
that in fact he would be at once an honor and
an ornament to the position, and he was sim
ple enough to believe them. They wouldn't
nominate a worthy and capable man, of their
own party, because they knew he would be
beaten, and they didn't want that. But they
seized upon Till, without any compunctions of
conscience, and they will laugh at him after
they have used him for their purpose. It is the
fable of the Spider and the Fly over again.
",Won't you walk into aly parlor? said the spider to
I've the prettiest little parlor you ever did espy," &c.
"TILL knows nd distinction among men when
virtue gambles tjleirintegrity,"
So says the Telegraph. Unfortunately for
poor Till he has now got among a set wile have
no "integrity" to "garnish" with any thing,

the Telegraph ascribes to him, he would see it.

Naw YORK, March 18.
Advices, per the steamer Union, state that
the rebels have erected formidable batteries at
Galveston, mounted with guns taken from the
Harriet Lane and Westfield. '
The United States fleet off Galveston on Feb.
28th consisted of the steam frigate Brooklyn
and four gunboats.
On the 12th the Brooklyn threw a few shells
into the fort on Pelican Island, and on the
24th threw them into the town, setting it on
fire in three places. The flames were, how
ever, soon extinguished.
The Harriet Lane is seventy miles up the
river, being converted into an iron clad.
it is not probable that our fleet, as at present
constituted, will undertake any offensive op
erations against the city.

A NEW PAPER IN WAISRINGTON.—We, have
received the first number of the Constitutional
Union, a Democratic paper now published
weekly in Washington city, but soon to appear
daily. The tone of the paper may be gathered
from the following call and the leading &Ai
The madness and folly of Abolitionism have
not only involved us in a deplorable civil war,
but they have brought us to the very verge of
anarchy 1 It is the high and holy •• mission of
the Democrocy to rescue our beloved country
from the fiery abyss into which blind fanati
cism and mad ambition would hurl it. And the•
Democracy can and will do it ! Already, in State
after State, the conservative Democratic mas
ses have risen in the majesty of their strength,.
and swept from power the black hearted dema
gogues who have prostituted high places of
trust, to subserve their own base and oelfieh
purposes, at the expense of the life, and blood
and treasure of the nation. Two years of
abolition misrule have caused the scales to drop
from the eyes of many a too•confiding constitu
ency, and they now see, in all its naked defor
mity, this demon of Abolition, which, under
the guise of Republicanism, lays violent hands
upon the Constitution, and threatens to subvert
the liberties of the people. The conservative
masses throughout the land have resolved to
hurl the usurpers from power ; the handwriting
is already on the wall ; like the mighty swell
of ocean, the heaving tide of Democracy be
gins to move the political' sea ; and soon the
good old ship of State, manned by a brave and
sturdy Democratic crew, will be seen proudly
careering over its placid waters, beneath bright
and tranqUil skies.
A curious project has been: set en foot for
the speedy conveyance of letters between En
gland and France. It is proposed to erect in
both countries, a: a distance of about 1000 me
tres from the coasts of Calais and Dover, a
strong edifice of masonry, containtng a steam
engine of sufficient power, by means of which.
an immense wheel, 25 metres in diameter, is
made to turn forty times a minute. By this
rotation a series of wires, forming a gigantic
strap, extending across the channel, is coiled
round the wheel at one end, say at Dover, and
uncoilediat the other, Calais, and conversely.
To this strap India rubber leather bags are to
be attached, which are thus conveyed across
the channel at 3000 metres per minute, so that,
within the space of twelve minutes the letters
and despatches from one country may be land
ed on the other. The length alone of the strap
is sufficient to cause its submersion, and the
transmieeion might be effected in any weather.
During the gold,excitement, which has in $
measure abated, we learned of a Brooklynite,
who, unmindful of the old adage, "Make not
haste to get rich," indulged in golden specula
tions, and after about four weeks experience,
among the Brokers of Wall street, found that
he had less than five hundred dollars remain
ing of the sum of nip() thousand with whieh
he commenced operations. This is but one of
the many who have within a few weeks . lost
the hard earnings of many a year. Rather &
sad experience. —Phila. Dial.
