PURPOSES OF THE WAR.
Congress, by a vote nearly unanimous, passed
the following resolution, which expresses the
voice of the Nation and is the true standard of
Loyalty:
That the present deplorable civil war has been
forced noon the country by the disnzionista of the
Southern States, now in arms against the Constitutional
Government, and in arms around the Capital ; that in
this National emergency, Congress, bantehing all feel
ing of mere passion or resentment, will recollect only
its duty to the whole country; that this tear is not
waged on their part in any spirit of oppression, or f r
any purpose of conquest or subjugation, or purpose of
overthrowing or interfering with, the rights or established
institivions of those States,but to defend and maintain
the supremacy of the Constitution, and to preserve the
Union, with all the dignity, equality and rights of the
several States unimpaired; and that as soon as these ob
jects are accomplished the war ought to cease."

The Administration Organ.
Let us for a moment divert our attention
from the smaller fry and direct it intently to
the official organ, the Washington Chronicle,
edited by that prince of scoundrels, John W.
Forney.
The leading article of that paper, of May
20, 1863, will be the subject of our present
discourse.
It is headed "Another Copperhead Fizzle,"
and the object of the article is to disarrage the
Vallandigham meeting, held in Neir York on
the evening of the 18th inst.
The article opens in this way :
Tlie arrest of Vallandigham by General
Burnside has caused some disturbance in the
minds of a few over-nice men of lawyer-like
notions, who cannot endure anything that is
not backed by a precedent. The secession
Sympathizers of the North have taken the op
portunity to make another concerted attempt
to alarm the sensibilities of the people and
scarce them into the belief that President Lin
coln is waging this war not for the purpose of
conquering the South—which, -by the way,
they have always heretofore objected to—but
of trampling on the liberties of the North. The
most considerable of these. matfestations, and
in fact the only public assemblage, was the
Vallandigham meeting in New York city, night
before last. A crowd of several hundred boys
and men came together in Union Square, and
by the aid.of music several hundred citizens
were stopped on their way home."
These are the representations of the drunken
and debauched wretch who speaks officially for
the Washington administration.
The political salvation of this man Forney
depends upon the disruption of this govern
ment and the establishment of a central des
potism, controlled by the heartless villains who
now employ him to do their traitorous and
dirty work.
We, who have known him long—known him,
Ire may say, from his infancy—know him to
be an abandoned, profligate politician, devoid
of principle, and utterly unworthy of credit or
respect. He is the enemy of everything that
is virtuous—the advocate of everything that
is base. We need no confirmatory evidence of
this beyond his " consnelo" letter. That por
trays the , man as he is, and none but the
-equally ababdoned will associate with, or re
cognize him as one worthy of regard or es
teem.
This miserable wretch is now trying his best
to overturn the present system of republican
government, and establish a despotism in its
stead over the people.
As we said before, his political salvation re
quires it—the scoundrel must be "Illy Lord
Forney," or nothing—he most rise with the
fall of his country, or fall into insignificance,
beggary and all the concomitants of the lowest
estate with its rise. If the country is saved,
this villain is lost—if it is rained, his fortunes
may rise from the dust and ashes of its fall.
To show the spirit of this kennel cur's lucu
brations we quote the concluding paragraph :
"If nervous and timid men are inclined to
draw dark auguries from the fact that such
atrocious sentiments as emanated from this
meeting are entertained and permitted in the
North, they may gain some consolation from
looking at the other aide of the picture. Re
member the two other great Oaeatiliolie when
Union Square has been hallowed by the pre
sence of a loyal, devoted and earnest throng
of patriotic men. Remember the enthusiasm
of those meetings, the fervor, the dignity, the
moral and political standing of the speakers,
and the thrill of emotion with which the whole
loyal North responded to their sentiments ; and
then look at this beggarly array of tire Points
rowdies and newsboys, consider the discreet
absence of the ablest of the Democratic lead
ers, the profanity and violence of those who
did speak, and the dead silence with which the
hoots and yells of the drunken assemblage fall
upon the ear of the nation We have no fears
from those who are weak enough or silly
enough to set themselves up as the defenders
of the traitor Vallandigham, and we have no
fear of this administration being condemned
by the people for an act which, though it is
denounied as tyrannical and despotic, excites
only interest enough to raise one political
meeting through the length and breadth of the
buid, and that in New York city. As t 4 the
justice and propriety of the arrest of Yellen
dighsm, it needs no approval. It stands on its
own basis of common sense. Yallandigham
was a traitor. He was working in his feeble
Way against the country and in favor of the
rebellion. Not only he, but all such as he,
who follow in his footsteps, ought to be dis
posed of in the same summary manner."
These times require stout, brave bearta.
We trait there are at this day but few. " ner
vous and timid men" left. We all brace our
selves to meet the issues of the day as they
are begotten, and if " summary" punishment
for freedom of speech is to be the order, we
ball Soon discover whether we have or have
not among us men brave and patriotie enough
to paralyze the hands of all such vie advo-
Cates of despotism, all such heartless opposers
of our free system of government as this aban
doned wretch, John W. Forney.
Disintegration.
There are two important contingencies in
volved in the progress of events in this coun
try which it would be well for the people to
consider—the possibility of disunion and its
apparently necessary consequent—disintegra
tion. Whenever disunion results from the pre
sent policy of the National administration—for
we solemnly believe, if persevered in, it must
follow • the reckless course the administration is
pursuing—nothing can stay the force of the
example of one division in the country in
bringing about others as well. The ablest
statesman of our time, in the ablest State paper
yet given to the people during the existence
of our present national struggle, has foresha
dowed the idea of several separations in our
national domain, arising from the preponde
rance of representation in the Eastern over the
Middle and more wealthy and populous States.
Acertain Ohio Congressman has forcibly told
us how, through the operation of the tariff, the
East is making money out of the war and the
West being continually impoverished. Added
to these, there are other agencies at work in
the minds of the people, and other considera
tions which, in the event of a separation North
and South, will appeal powerfully to the self
interest of several States and sections of the
country which the policy of the administration
has alienated in sympathy from the common
cause of the Union, and brought hopelessly to
feel its own domestic lawlessness and oppres
sion. Political sentiment East is radically di
verse from that of many of the Western and
Middle States. The geography of trade and
internal comity lies with the far West toward
the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific. An im
mense public debt, represented in the promis
sory paper of the General Government, to be
paid out of the pockets, unequally, of an im
poverished, hopeless and dispirited people,
could be most readily repudiated by a separa
tion, which would naturally begin in tae West,
and be followed in time by the sundering of
the political association of the Middle and the
East. The hope of reunion now maintains the
public credit. The extra demand for labor
which the war creates engages temporarily an
extra amount of capital. This capital is fur
nished by the issues of the Government, sus
tained by taxation and in part paid back to
the people in the wages of their work. Con
sumption continues to keep pace with the ex
tra demands upon and the extra supplies of
labor. A peace upon the basis of separation •
North and South would break down at once
the confidence of hope, destroy the consump
tion which the war has made, cheapen labor
by throwing it 'out of employment, and take
away, thus, the main sources of public reve
nue. The national credit thus once destroyed
the existence of the Union in half becomes in
tolerable. On the other hand, the war pro
longed into another decade, were that possible,
would snap the excessive tension of public
excitement and flood the country with repre
sentative values which all the recuperative
energies of our national wealth could not re
deem. Between the possibility of disunion,
peace and perpetual war the nation would be
in the very throes of uncertainty and doubt.
Probably the only solution left would be a
general disintegration and a re-association of
congenial States and interests.
Already turbulent murmurs from the West
are ominous of the passions which are at work
among the people. Proscription and lawless
ness by the government are bearing the bitter
fruits of popular madness and tumult. The
after calm of peace might give to discontent
the Steady purpose of separation. Persistence
in the mad career of oppression and the rule
of force, may bring on open resistance and
revolt If the signs of the times are mute in
their warnings to the administration, if its te
merity is equal to the actual expelipent of
despotism, disruption may only be ilkuestion
of a few months more.
Through all the threatenings of the future,
the refuge which remains to the people must
be mainly in the State laws administered for
their protection. Wise and calm men should
be chosen to execute the laws—honest and
fearless men to defend and maintain the rights
of the people. The moral of the present is
deeply instructive for the future. No'calamity
can be equal to oppression either of pow& or of
want which makes resistance necessary,but the
degradation the people's honesty and earnest
ness may suffer by the ill-chosen executives of
their sovereign will.
The 130th regiment Pennsylvania volun
teers, to which the three companies from this
place are attached, passed through town on
Friday last, on their way to Harrieburg, to be
mustered out of service. The companies from
this place will meet with a becoming reception
from their fellow citizens on their return to
their homes. The Republican had the impu
dence to recommend that these gallant soldiers
be received by the Union League, thus making
it a political demonstration, in order to manu
facture capital for their rotten Abolition cause.
But the true Union men of all parties took the
matter into their bands, and we are pleased to
state that the reception will be one in which
men of all parties can unite in giving our brave
soldiers a hearty welcome home. Persons who
can go so far as to make a political question
in receiving our veteran troops from the battle
field, are certainly well calculated to represent
the Abolition party.—York, Pa., Press.
Seven thousand three hundred of our men
have been delivered to Colonel Ludlow, and
have arrived at camp Parole, Annapolis. What
becomes of those statements that we had not
lost over 10,000 men in all ? Recollect the
telegraph putting our killed and wounded at
22,000, and now add the list or prisoners de
livered up to this time, and you get an idea of
the management of the Horse Jockey's pet
General.
Mr. Frank Moore, of the c , Rebellion Re
cord," will fail to complete his history of the
times if he denies a place to Forney's leader
on the conviction of Vallandigham. It is so
abject in its baseness, it lies so superfluously,
misrepresents with such wantonness, and so
wriggles in its servility, as to deserve a place
among the master-pieces of hired mendacity
and purchased partisanship.— World.
The weak-headed fools, or the servile tragic
lees to power, who indorse the arrest and
imprisonment of Vallendighata will Sad an
adequate measure of their infinite bassoon in
the words of that profound and eminent jurist.

of animadversion on public measures. It must

NEWS OF TEE DAY.
CINCINNATI, May 20—We have intelligence
here that Gen. Grant, after destroying the
State House and rebel stores in Jackeon, Miss.,
evacuated the place. W.j have no particulars
later than Gen. Grant's own disp itches give.—
A rumor is prevalent at Murfreesboro' that
Gen. Bragg is cautiously withdrawing a por
tion of his troops from our front and sending
them to Jackson, Miss. From Shelbyville it is
reported that three brigades had left there and
were afterwards seen at Chattanooga. It is
possible they went to Knoxville rather than
Jackson. There is no doubt that theie is com
motion in Bragg's army and that several di
visions are moving.
MURFREESBORO', TENN., May 18.—There
must have been a first class battle at: Jackson
when it was taken by Grant's forces. A letter
from there, of the 9th of May, says troops
were then pouring in from all quarters for de
fense. Forces had arrived there from North
Carolina, Charleston, and Port Hudson. Jack
son was then being hastily fortified, and was
already filled with intrenchments and pickets.
Indications are that the Union arms have
gained at Jackson glory and an important vic
tory.
MVEFREESBORO', TENN., May 19.—A deser
ter from the First Alabama regiment was
brought in to Gen. Stanley to-day. He re
ports that the rebel forces lately at Shelbyville
and Tullahoma have been withdrawn. He did
not know their destination, but heard officers
say they were going to retake Jackson.
Several Union ladies came into our lines to
night from Shelbyville. They say there are
very few rebel troops between here and Shelby
ville. They state positively that Gen. Johnson
carried away three brigades with him to rein
force Gen. Pemberton.
They also say that Gen. Grant either evacua
ted or was driven from Jackson. He burned
the public buildings and warehouses, and des
troyed the railroad.
Col. Potters, an escaped prisoner, reports
that Gen. Grant is strongly posted, with his
flanks resting on Black river and B Lyon Pierre,
and if worsted he can retreat upon Grand
Gulf.
The Mobile Register thinks that Gen. Grant
is in a trap. If he stays longer where he is,
defeat and ruin await him. It also says Gen.
Johnson has Ten enough there and going there
to defeat him. It even does not despair of
raising the couredera,te flag in New Orleans.
All the rebel papers boast of the prepara
tions to overwhelm Gen. Grant, and says Gen.
Bragg prays for Gen. Rosecrans to advance.
CAIRO, May 20.—C0l Clayton, of the Fifth
Kansas Cavalry, with his own regiment and
detachments of three others, made a eel:moos
sauce a few days since from Helena toward
Little Rock, destroyed 200,000 bushels of corn,
several buildings containing commissary stores,
a number of grist mills near Colton Plant.—
After sending his infantry back, he encoun
tered two rebel brigades under Carter, had a
severe skirmish b and escaped by swimming the
Larysguille river, with a loss of two killed and
eleven wounded. The rebel loss was 55 killed
and a large number wounded.
Gen. Price is said to have left Little Rock on
the 11th in the direction of Wittsburg.
Col. Hatch made a raid from Corinth last
Wednesday into Alabama, bringing back 400
prisoners and GOO horses. He encountered
Chalmers near Tallahatchie, but escaped un
harmed.
The same day Major Burke, with 800 men,
made a dash from Germantown, within a few
milts of Holly. Springs, had a skirmish with
the rebel Faulkner, in which he lost 5 killed
and 11 wounded ; the rebel loss must, have been
ranch larger. We took a few prisoners and lost
none.
The steamer Continental, from below, brings
news that the rebels evacuated Warrenton after
destroying the batteries.
The gunboat' Cricket, from Young's Point,
with goverinueut dispatches from Admiral Por
ter, has arrived. Several iron clads were sta
tioned at various points in Red river. The
rebels have a raft above Alexandria for the
purpose of protecting their cotton boats, seve
ral of which are reported above.
CINCINNATI, 4 May 20.—Eleven of Morgan's
cavalry came into our lines the other day and
voluntarily surrendered.
Reports from Cumberland Gap report an in
crease of the rebel force there and at. the other
gaps, whether to prevent our advance into
East Tennessee or preliminary to an invasion
of Kentucky, is a matter of speculation.
MuaraEussouo', May 20.—Tbe Chattanooga
Rebel complains that many money getters in
the confederacy invariably besiege Yankee
prisoners with offers of two for one for their
green-backs.
Georgia papers are full of reports of the
splendid condition of the crops.
The Chattanooga Rebel speculates on Gen.
Burnside's anticipated movement on East Ten
nessee, and thinks the mountain will prove an
insuperable barrier to his h dvance.
A Knoxville paper of the 16th inst., mentions
the advance of ten federal regiments on Cum
berland Gap.
FORTRESS MONROE, May 19.—The expedition
sent from Suffolk under command of Colonel
Foster, has succeeded in its mission, and the
damage done to the Seaboard and Roanoke
railroad has been repaired. Our casualities
in the skirmishes of the last two or throe days
are insignificant.
The steamship S. It. Spaulding sailed for
;Newborn this afternoon, Among her passen
gers are Brig. Gen. Briggs and lady.
STAFFORD COURT HOUSE; May 2 0.—Captain
Newcomb, of Carl Sehurz's staff, on Monday,
made four important captures, three of rebel
soldiers, and the other a citizen who has been
giving aid and oomfort to the enemy. Two of
the soldiers were within cur lines and were
supplied with gasses. They were dressed in
civilian clothes, and, it seems, have been f re _
quently parsing in and out of our lines through
the winter with information fur the rebel com
manders. One was found at the house of an
old man named Calvert, and his gray uniform
was afterwards disoovered. At the same house
was also found a considerable quantity of clo
thing, blankets, ke., a key and several cane of
powder, and a large tin box of gun caps. Cal
vert wan of course arrested.
By the arrest of three an .1 other 'Arm ee it 1 3
believe i that a regular chain of communica
tion through our lines to the rebels has been
broken up.
By telegraph yesterday afternoon :
W noutna.Tort, May 21.—The following was
received to-day at headquarters:
JacssoN, Miss , May 15, 1863, via. MEM
PHIS, May 20.—T0 Major General Halleck,
General in-Chief:—This place fell into our
hands yesterday, after a fight of about three
hours. Joe Johnson was in command. The
enemy retreated north, evidently With the de
sign of joining the Vicksburg forces.
[Signed] U. S. GRANT, Msj. Gen.
A letter from St. Thomas, May 4th says:
On the 30th of April the U. S. steamer Van
derbilt arrived in Portland, and, after a few
hours delay, started for Martinique, where, it
is reported, the U. S. steamers Alabama and
Oneida have the Alabama,' alias 290, block
aded in an outer bay. The Admiral deelares
that, if he finds her there, he will sink her let
the consequences be what they may."
NEW Yong, May 21.—The steamer Union,
from the coast of Texas via Key West, on 15th
inst., arrived this morning. She has en board
fifty prisoners and a number of discharged sea
men. The Union captured the English block
ade running schooner Lunette, with a valua
ble cargo. The Union comes here to repair
her forward engine, which was broken down.
She also brings, as passengers, a number of
naval officers.
WASHINGTON, May 21.—Information contin
ues to be received in this city that a very ex
tensive trade is still carried on at Matamoras
and other ports on the Rio Grande for the
benefit of the rebels. Some time ago an officer
of the government in that quarter mentioned
the fact that the papers of suspicious vessels
had boen examined, but they all appeared in
proper form, and issued from Mexican custom
houses. He, therefore, could take no action
in the premises. There is no doubt that much
contraband trade is carried on under false pre
tences, the vessels of various European nations
participating in the traffic on the Rio Grande,
The trade is so extensive that our vessels can
do but little to prevent it.
CASE OF MR. V..4LLANDIGIIAM
From the Journal of Commerce
Governor Seymour's letter, published yes
terday, is a manly and bold expression of the
sentiment which pervades the entire commu
nity, including all classes and kinds of men,
excepting only a few who, by
.having become
slaves to passion and resentment, seem unable
to reason calmly orj edge correctly. The power
of the military organization of the United
States is well defined, both by statutes and by
Constitution, for the Constitution is the su
preme law over soldier and civilian, over Pres
ident and people. Nor was it necessary that
any suck appareht collision between the ab
solutism of military law and the rights of free
men should occur. It was a grave, a terrible
error of General Burnside, if he is personally
responsible for it; of the administration, if
they indeed directed it at the outset. It has
been conducted, too, in a manner most offen
sive to the entire spirit of our institutions, even
in the immediate conduct of the court martial
which tried Mr. Vallandigbam.
A most curious and arbitrary distinction was
drawn by the Judge Advocate, and sustained
by the Court, between portions of Mr. Vallan
digham's speech, by objecting to testimony re
lating to "political matters," and - yet convict
ing him for uttering sentiments purely political,
and in no sense more or less so than the exclu
ded matters. In fact, the court martial seems
to have erected this curious standard of law,
that a man who makes a speech discussing the
policy of the war, is making only a political
speech so long as he sustains Abolition views ;
and something more than a political—in short,
an offensive military speech—when he opposes
Abolition views. Soldiers are, of course, not
educated judges, and when courts martial at
tempt to try men for "express or implied trea
son," they make curious work of it. Starting
with violation of law and right, they necessa
rily end in foolish and dangerous proceedings.
There is, however, a way for the adminis
tration to turn all this to good account, if they
so desire. It is useless to disguise the fact
that there is a universal expression of opinion
against the course which has been pursued.
The doctrine of "sustaining the government,"
which loyal leagues teach, unconditionally,
has met a sudden trial, and has been wounded
in the house of its supporters. The radical
newspapers disapprove this act of the Govern
meet, with one , or two unimportant exceptions.
The loyal leagues will not hold meetings and
adopt resolutions to sustain it. The friends of
the administration are lukewarm even in dis
cussing it. A rank and total repudiation of
the whole thing should at once be made. De
lays are dangerous.
It will not do for the President to listen to
the demagogues in Washington, who, for mo
tives of personal or political enmity, desire to
injure their opponent in Ohio. These men are
the advisers of evil always. Beyond question
there are many among these men who desire
the destruction of the Union. They are avow
ed enemies of our national structure, professed
friends of some new form of government, which
they imagine, but cannot describe. Would
'that the President understoodthese men aright!
instead of permitting their pernicious and
deadly counsels to have influence over his views,
we trust that he will see, in the course which
has been pursued with Mr. Vallandigham, the
greatest blow at civil liberty and American
rights which has been struck since the war
began, and at once repudiate all responsibility
for it. Such a course would rally to his sup
port all the true men in America, would elec
trify the people with new hope of the triumph
of free and constitutional principles over rebel
lion, and do much to dissipate that cloud of
gloomy apprehension which leads men to fear
now that, even if we succeed in crushing armed
rebellion, we shall not have succeeded in sus
taining liberty in the land of Washington.
Governor Seymour's letter strikes a chord
in every American heart, and the response is
universal. He speaks well, both as to time
and as to what he says.
FIGURES DO Nor Lts.—The Tribune says
Lee's army, at the time Hooker crossed to give
him battle, only counted 50 000 men. The
Times says Hooker's army at the same time
numbered 159,800 men. It thus appears . that
with more than three times Lee's army Hooker
was unable to whip him in the first fight, and
unable to do it with twice and a half his num
ber of men after he got his reinforcements.
Acc Tding to the statements of the Tribune
and Times. Hooker's loss in killed and woun
ded. in the several battles, amounted to only
17.000 to 18,000, which, with the prisoners
captured by the enemy, numbering five or six
thousand more, would make the total loss from
23.000 to 24,000. Lee, it is stated by the same
authorities, lost more than Hooker did, or
about 80,000 men—exceeding half his original
force. He could not have been reinforced by
more than 10,000 to 15,000 men. That would
leave his whole force after his losses—inclu
ding the loss of General Jackson, who was a
host in himself—from 30.000 to 40 000 men.
Before this small force Hooker retreated with
an army which, after all his losses, still num
bered 186 000 men, or about. four to one of the
enemy. So much for the generalship and fight
ing qualities of the new Napoleon —Herald.

ritAc TICAL CEMENTER,
Is prepared to Cement the exterior of Buildings with
the New York Improved
Water-Proof Mastic Cement.
This Material is different from all other Cements.
It forms a solid, durable adhesiveness to any surface,
imperishable by the action of water or frost. Every
geed building should be coated with this Cement; it is
a perfect preserver to the walls, and makes a beautiful,
fine finish, equal to Eastern brown sandstone, or any
color desired.
Among others for whom I have applied the Mastic
Cement, I refer to the following gentlemen :
J. Bissell, residence, Penn street, Pittsburg, finished
five years.
