cease. It is time we had ascertained that our
national difficulties can never be cured without
the action of the people. It is time we had
exploded the fallacy that. patriotism and party
are incompatible in any conceivable circum
stances of our country. You, at any rate, let
me hope, reject this dogma as a delusion; for
in all the gloom of the present, in all the dark
uncertainties of the future, I put my hopes in
the great Democracy of the Union. (Great
applause.) I see nothing else to which we can
look. I see you, it is true, occasionally dis
tracted by the tactics of your opponents, occa
sionally disturbed by
friends. But I also see you animated by a
patriotism which I fully believe will guide you
ari g ht, and which, in spite of all that men may
say of you, commands my resepect and confi
dence. (Applause.) Permit me then, with
such" freedom as may be taken by one who
neither has nor seeks any special place in your
organization, to offer you a word of friendly
What you need, as it seems to me, is to be
fully impressed with a belief in your mission'
and in your capacity to fulfill it. That mis
sion is to save the Constitution of the United
States. (Cheers.) By saving it, I • mean of
Course that you , are to save it for the whole
Union, for the South and the North, for the .
East and West, with every right which it pro
tects completely re-established. I can see no
other mode of saving it ; for it is to my mind
apparent that a war prosecuted against the
South for the acquisition of pewers over their
domestic institutions Which the Constitutioji
expressly withholds from the Federal Govern
ment can result in nothing but the establish
ment of a system under 'which there can be no
local rights of self-government left for any sec
tion or 'any State: This it is your mission to
prevent.. You cannot prevent it by uniting
with those who proffer support of the war
without the slightest protest against the un
constitutional policy with which it is prosecu
ted. In all the late popular proceedings look
ing to the establishment of what are ,styled
"Loyal Leagues,7 (laughter,) I have not seen
one word of indignant remonstrance against
the unconstitutional measures of the adminis
tration. You cannot expect, and need not look
for such remonstrance from assemblies largely
composed of those who are the peculiar politi
cal supporters of the administration, and who
are more or less responsible for its measures.
Public opinion, if it is to make itself heard and
felt against aliviolations of the Constitution,
must make its utterances through the action and
the voice Of those who have never failed to pro
test against the policy that has created for us
so much peril. If that public opinion fails to
recognize this necessary channel of expression
—if it yields itself to a fatal appathy or will
not see how it can at once save a government
arid change an administration—then all will
be lost, and there will remain to us only the

position, possess your souls in patience until
you can give him a constitutional successor.
Let everything be prepared with one fixed and
unselfish purpose, namely, to make every suc
cessive election reverse the doctrines and dog
mas and Usurpations which you know you
should condemn. By this course of action,
instead of weakening, you will strengthen your
government; for you will make it apparent to
the whole world that the present arbitrary rule

I know the difficulties of your position ; but

Above all, and before all, without one instant's

civil liberty. You must learn that those prin

times of commotion have been evolved out of
the wisdom of ages, to save us from the mad

Preparing yourselves in this way for the
great task that is before you, you will be able
to approach the difficult problem of this war
with a firm and fearless step. You will see
that this problem presents to you the alterna
tives of consenting to a dismemberment of the
country or of preventing that dismemberment
by a reversal of the popular and governmental
action which has made it so nearly an accom
plished fact. Yon will soon hear it said by
those who have urged on the war upon this
most disastrous policy that it is too late now;
that the breach can never be closed ; that the
South must be permitted to go in peace. Just
here, then, precisely here, before all is g iven
up to the control of the extremists North and
South, you must interpose. You have a right
to have other measures and other counsels
tried. (Cheers.) You are numerically a ma
jority in at least four of the largest States in
the Union. You may rightfully demand that
the Constitution, with all its guarantees, be
tendered to the revolted States ; and you may
rightfully do allthat can assure the people of
the South of its protection, without calling
upon your government to change its milfttny
attitude. (Cheers.) I know well enough the
insidious answer that is made to this sugges
tion; how confidently we are told that the
South would reject your offer with scorn. But
I tell you that history has never seen a case of
war, foreign or civil, in which a nation could
absolve itself from the moral responsibility of
doing right, by asserting before-hand that it
knew its adversary would do wrong. The ele
ments of a moral judgment do not exist in ad
vance of such an offer, either in the contro
versies of nations or in the controversies of
individuals. Whatever others may think, or
-say, or do, you, I trust, willact upon a princi
ple which I am persuaded rests upon a moral
foundation that no sophistry and no casuistry
can successfully assail. If, after such an offer,
- the war must still be carried on, no language
can overstate the advantage that would be
gained in the vigor of its prosecution.
And-here, gentlemen, I close. Ono path of
duty is clearly open before us. I can see no
other new. Sufficient unto the day is the evil,
sufficient unto the day is the duty thereof. He
who does that one duty in a firm and humble
faith in_the providence of God prepares hini
self for a clear perception of the next that may
arise in the future..

Harrisburg, March 28, 1863.
A Day ofNational Humiliation and Prayer.
President Lincoln hag issued a proclamation
fixing Thursday, 80th of April, as a day of
National Humiliation and Prayer. According
to a telegraphic dispatch, the proclamation
"Let us then rest humbly in the hope autho
rized by the-Divine teachings that the united
cry of the nation will be heard on high, and
answered with blessings no less than the
pardon of our national sins and the restoration
of our now divided and suffering country to
its former happy condition of unity and peace."
The United Democracy
The result of the recent elections through
out the State shows the Democracy to be not
only united but largely increasing in strength.
While this is the case we have nothing to fear
even from the boldest schemes of oppression
meditated by the Aboliton traitors, They
know this, and therefore they hesitate and
tremble. However anxious they may be to
override us by despotic measures ; to crush
out the freedom of speech and of the press,
and terrify us from the free and fearless exer
cise of the ballot by cries of treason and
threatened military seizure and incarceration,
they dare not seriously make the attempt in
the face of a united and determined party,
Who only ask the unrestricted enjoyment of
their constitutional rights, and will submit to
nothing less. They will howl, and bluster, and
threaten, and call hard names; they will do
every mean and disgraceful act that cowards
and thieves dare do ; but none of these things
will hurt us; and, while we go on fearlessly
exposing their iniquities and marshalling our
orces for the conflict, assured of peaceable
victory, they will see their power departing
from them day by day, and, in the end, fall, like
Lucifer, into a bottomless pit, from which they
can never emerge. . Courage, Democrats !
United we stand, formidable enough to crush
all opposition and trample under our feet the
enemies of law and order, the thieves and trai
tors who have conspired against the Constitu
tion, Popular Government, Liberty and Justice.
Down with the Abolitionists Down with the
Traitors Down with the Plunderers ! Live
forever the Constitution and Union ! Live
eternally Law, Order and Liberty !
Address of Judge Curtis.
We publish in to-day's paper the address of
Hon. Geo. T. Curtis before the Democratic
Union Association in New York. Judge Curtis
is well known by his " History of the Consti
tution," as one of the very first constitutional
jurists and scholars in the country. His repu
tation gives authority to what he says, and
renders it worthy of attention, Apart from
this—the address is itself one of the most
comprehensive and perfect disquisitions upon
the rights guaranteed and powers conferred
and withheld by the Constitution to be met
with in the whole range of cotemporary po
Taking for his theme "Loyalty," Judge
Curtis goes on to define wherein "loyalty"
properly consists—allegiance to the Supreme
Law of the Land ; he utterly repudiates un
conditional support of the administration,
the pleas of military necessity which the
administration has put forth to cover up its
infractions of the Constitution. He argues that
the loss, under arbitrary encroachments, of
personal liberty will be followed by a sacrifice
of all rights of property—that when these
take place despotism or anarchy ensue.
This masterly exposition of true loyalty, of
the ill-effects of loyalty to Usurpation and not
to Law, concludes with words of timely advice
and exhortation to all conservative men—it
urges organization, energy and patience to
secure the election of a constitutional succes
sor to the present. President for the restitution
of constitutional right. Fail to do this," he•
prophetically adds, 1 , and the nation, losing
,heart and hope, will lose sight of the method
by which a constitutional succession can be
preserved to a better day, and will yield itself
to the despair which welcomes despotism, or
the rage which welcomes anarchy." We have
seen no production pertinent to our national
condition which is worthier of a careful peru
sal than this address. It will bear reading
over and over, and its truths , should sink deep
into the heart of every lover of the country.
The Demecratio Convention of Lancasier
county met at Fulton Hall, in the city of Lan
caster, on Wednesday, the 25th of March. The
attendance was unusually large, forty-eight
districts being represented. Dr. HENRY CAR
PENTER was chosen President. The object of
the Convention was to elect delegates to the
17th of June Democratic State Convention.
The following gentlemen were chosen, instruc
ted to vote for Hon. GEomm SANDERSON for
Governor, and use all honorable efforts to
secure his nomination :
Senatorial Delegates—Hon. Isaac E. Hiester,
Dr. Henry Carpenter. ,
Representative Delegates—Dr. John.K. Raub,
Richard M'Grann, Horatio S. Kernis Robert
Speeches were made by Col. Pordney, Hon.
Isaac E. Mester, and Mayor Sanderson. The
general resolutions were sound and temperate,
and the spirit of the Convention excellent. A
resolution expressive of continued and unaba
ted confidence in the integrity and patriotism
of Hon. George Sanderson, and strongly ur
ging his nomination for Governor, was among
the number passed.
From Cincinnati dispatches of March 30 we
learn that the rebel raid in Kentucky has proved
a failure. The Commercial's Murfreesboro'
dispatch says the rebels report that there are
fifteen thousand United States troops at Sa

possession ; also, that General Grant's forces
are surrounding Vicksburg.

A Cincinnati dispatch says the Anderson
Cavalry Troop has been mustered out of ser
vice. In explanation of this singular an
nouncement, a Philadelphia dispatch says:
It is understood here that the portion of the
Anderson cavalry, mentioned to-day in a Cin
cinnati despatch as having been'mustered out
of service, consisted only of the original troop,
the main part of whom have been made officers
of the cavalry regiments, only about twenty
remaining. These have been honorably dis
charged, having performed two year's active
service in the field. The Anderson cavalry
regiment will continue its organization intact.
Nothing has been received at the Navy De
partment to-day confirmatory of the rebel re
port of two gunboats having attempted to run
the battery at Vicksburg, and one of them
having been destroyedand sunk and the other
badly damaged in so doing. The story is not
credited here, although it is not impossible
that Admiral Porter may have sent or at
tempted to send such reinforcement to the aid
of Admiral Farragut.

negro camps in Cairo and at Columbia are to
be broken up, and all colored persons not in the
actual service will be sent to Island No. 10 and

[We wish .our readers to understand that,
although we comprise in our news summary
every telegraphic dispatch from the West and
Southwest relating to the movements and ac
tions of our armies, yet we place no confidence
in the* whatever—about ninety in every hun
dred of them being sheer fabrications. Nearly
every one of them for the past ten days has
been absolutely false. We know nothing re
liable as to the condition of our forces there,
or of the prospect of success—but confess to a
fear of failure, such as last year's prodigious
operations ended in.]
The 6th Connecticut and the Bth Maine
regiments are reported to have joined the ne
gro troops in Florida. The darkies had driven
the rebels five or six miles from their original
position. Skirmishes were frequent, and three
regiments of Georgians were known to be
marching on Jacksonville, and heavy firing
was heard as the steamer which brings the
news was leaving.
Col. Fairchild, with a force from the Army
of the Potomac, has made a successful recon

The following account of the loss of the U.
S.. steamer Mississippi, while attempting to
pass Port Hudson, on the night of the 14th
March, will be read with interest :
In going up the river she was struck by
three or four shots only, and the damage was
comparatively insignificant, but when nearly
in the centre of the range of batteries, the
smoke and steam from the boats in advance and
the batteries, so enveloped the ship that the
pilot lost his bearings and the frigate foundered
on the right bank of the river. For forty mi
nutes she was exposed to a terrific fire from all
the rebel batteries.
During this time • she fired 250 rounds but
her guns, one after another, were nearly all
dismounted, her port holes on the starboard
side knocked into one, 25 or 30 of her men
killed and four wounded.
The ship was riddled with shot and there was
BO prospect of her ever floating again; so, at
last Capt. Smith gave the order for her aban
During all the time she was under fire there
was no particular excitement on board.
The orders were quietly given and execu
The crew were told to load and Are at the bat
teries as rapidly as possible, anddid so as long
as there was a mounted gun to fire:,
After the order to abandon her was given,
the boats were lowered, and the four wounded
men put in first. The crew then filled the
boats. Many jumped overboard expecting to
s wim ashore. Some were picked up by the
boats and a few are supposed 'to have bean
drowned. Those who reached the levee were
taken off by the Essex to the number of 50 or
60. When the crew were all off the ship, Capt.
Smith and Lieut. Derby sprinkled turpentine
in the wardroom, setting it on fire.
The captain of the forehold fired her forward.
The Captain and Lieutenant pulled for the Es
sex. The Mississippi was soon wrapped in
flame, and the fire presently reaching th• mag
azine, the ship was blown up with a tremen

The Savannah Republican of the 25th reports
an engagement to have taken place between
the rebel light batteries and United States
gunboats on Monday. No particulars are

in the vicinity of Jacksonville.
Official information has been received by the
government of Col. Connor's severe battle and
splendid victory on Bear River, Washington
Territory. After a forced march of one hun

through deep snows, in which 76 of his men
were disabled by frozen feet, he and his gal

warriors in their stronghold, and, after a hard
fought battle of four hours, destroyed the en

Losses of a Single Rebel.
The loss of private property in the South,
since the commencement of- the rebellion, has
been immense. Thoueands who were million
sires before the war began are now almost
beggars, while the poorer classes everywhere
are alniost at the point of starvation. We give
a single instance : The rebel General Gideon
J. Pillow says he has lost, since the war began,
400 negroes; 4 gin -houses, worth $lO,OOO each;
100,000 pounds of bacon •; 2,000 hogs; 500
head of cattle'; 2,100 bales of cotton, burned
by his own government, besides the destruc
tion of his houses and- the desolation of his
plantations by. the Federal armies. The losses
of this single individual, at a moderate esti-.
mate, amount to the large sum of $600,000
what, then, must be the grand total of indi
vidual loss throughout the entire South ?
