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
u That the present deplorable civil war has been
forced upon the country by the dieunioniato of the
!anthem Btafee, now in arms against the Constitutional
Government, and in arms around the Capital; that in
thisliational emergency, Congress, banishing all feel
ing of mere passion or resentment, will recollect only
its duly to the whole country; that this war is not
waged on their part in any spirit of oppression, or fir
any purpose of conquest or subjugation, or purpose of
overthrowing or interfering mirk the rights or established
institutions of those States,but to defend and maintain
the supremacy of the Constitution, and to preserve the
Mien, with all the dignity, equality and rights of the
several States unimpaired; and that as soonas these ob
jects are accomplished the war ought to cease."

Who is Our Military Master I
We should like to know which of President
•Lincoln's military commanders is our master ?
Are we subject to arrest by Schenck, Couch,
or Brooks, or all of them, and are we in the
Department of Maryland, "The Susquehanna"
or "The Monongahela ?" We may, perhaps,
starve one satrap in all single-heartednesS and

Nomination of Vallandigham.,
The nomination by acclamation of C. L: Val
landigham by the Ohio state Democratic Con

Ills triumphant election will be the best de
fense of republican principles that can be
made, and a stern rebuke to tyrants which
they will long remember. Thousands of good
men of all parties , who did not concur in his
extreme views, will nevertheless vote for him
.for the purpose of recording popular judgment
against his oppressors_
A. Hint to the Union Leaguers.
The New York Sun, a paper of no decidedly
political proclivities, but which generally sup
ports the administration, has the following,
which we commend to y the attention of the
Union Leaguers :
We commend a conversation with a returned
soldier, as likely to dispel a great many rn
wholeeome prejudices_ In presence Of a vete
ran of Malvern Hills, Antietam, Fredericks
burg, Newbern, Port Royal, Pensacola, New
Orleans, and Port Hudson, a whole-souled man
is apt to break the political cobwebs that bind
- .him to an admiration of General Hooker's
ability, or a weak disgust of Gen. M'Clellan'a
rapacity to capture Richmond, if he had not
been prevented by the politicians. In fine,
any cue that thinks the Union may be saved
by talking instead of fighting, is not likely to
unbosom himself '•to a returned volunteer a
-Cruelty Him : Crucify Him
On Saturday last the Bertrand Mr. Leacook,
formerly of New Orleans, was arrested by 'a
file of soldiers while at breakfast, in the house
of his nephew, the Rector of the Episcopal
church in this city, and without being allowed
to take any baggage, was marched across the
river, placed in the cars bound for Baltimore,
without warrant, without any offence charged
We are left in uncertainty as to whether. he is
to be sent within the rebel lines, imprisoned in
some Federal beadle, shot, hung, or crucified.
It will be rexpembered by our readers that the
. Bey. Mr. Leacock was an Episcopal Rector in
New Orleans, where he had ministered for over
eleven years, and from which he was expelled
by Oen. Butler because he would not insert in
the services of his church a prayer for Abra
ham :Lincoln. The church to which he be
longed in the South had inserted a prayer for
the President of the Confederate States, which,
upon the advent of Butler, Mr. Leacook dis
continued, and in his public prayers omitted
to pray either for Jeff. Davis or Abraham Lin
coln, but this did not satisfy the tyrannical
brute Boller, and Mr. Leacock was banished
by the degenerate son of his Puritan fathers,
who tied from England to an inhospitable
shore, for the purpose of escaping religious
persecution and enjoying the right to worship
God in any manner they pleased. Subse
quently, when Butler was superseded by Banks,
Me. Lesoock returned to Now Orleans' but wan

arrested by order of Banks and required to
take the oath of allegiance, upon the refusal
of which he was again banished. Returning
to Harrisburg at the earnest entreaty of his
nephew, he has since been living a retired sad
quiet life, interfrriaq; vith no one. Mr. Lea
cook is an old mom, nearly seventy years of
age, has always been in favor of the Union as
it was, but could not, at the bidding of Butler
or Banks, dissolve leis allegiance to the church
in which he had ministered all his life. "The
heat and front of his offending hath this ex
tent, no more."
TA* coming Draft.
We hear rumors from various parts or
the State of people obstructing the operations
of the enrolling officers, and making evident
preparations to resist the draft. To all such
we counsel moderation and a strict adherence
to law. That is our only salvation. “ The
worst form of government is better than anar
ohy," and any reoietonet to thevastlithsti laws,
if successfUl, must break down all the barriers
which wisdom has erected for our mutual pro
tection, and resolve society into its original
chaos. If any of our laws are violated by the
officers whom we have elected, and whose
sworn duty it is to carry them out and see that
they are enforced, let us not imitate their bad
example, but remember that they are only
temporatayikpower, and submit in silence—
s') long os their violations of law do not toil&
our lives er liberties—until we can, through
legitimate means, displace these bad servants,
and elect others in their stead, who will be
faithful to their trusts.
The short-sighted and fanatical rulers who
now misgovern our distracted country evi
dently aim at over-riding our fundamental
l a ms auti ereeting some form of neutralized
government in its stead. Nearly every law
passed by the last Congress, and approved by
Abraham iLincoln, was in violation of some
provision of the Constitution of the United
States or .of the individual States, and in many
cases of both. In some instances these unjust
auddespotio laws have been put in force against
individuals, and their elected MOO and liber
ties trampled under foot; but, whenever and
wherever a majority of the citizens of any dis
trict have wised their united voices against
these usurpers, and defied their power, the
cowardly tyrants have changed their course,
and left the laws to their rightful supremacy
obedience to the law is the foundation upon
which all peaceful society rests, end we say
again to all, observe the law, and insist upon
its observance by others, whether high or low,
rich or poor, rulers or ruled. It is only by
this means that we can reach the highest at
attainable point of governmental perfection
and human happiness.
If a law is unequal in its operations, and
bears more heavily upon one class of society
than another, 'submit to it manfully while it is
a law ; but, as you value your liberties, make
sure that it is repealed at the earliest practi
cable day, and a more just law enacted in its
stead. If, through hasty or venal legislation,
any law be enacted in violation of the funda
mental principles upon which our government
is based, we have the Supreme Court to appeal
to, who will declare such law null and void, and
of no effect.
If it is believed that the law of Congress rela
tive to the draft, or any other law passed by
State or National Legislatures, is in violation
of the Constitution, then it is the right, nay it
is the duty of every freeman against whom this
unjust law is made to operate, to carry the
case before the highest tribunal in our coun
try, and have the question settled once and for
While it is the duty of every citizen to obey
the law, it is also his duty to see that the fun
damental laws are not encroached upon or set
aside ; for upon them rests his liberty, and he is
only fit to be a slave who tamely submits to
the undermining of the government which af
fords him protection.
HONEST OPINIONS CANDIDLY EX
A sound Democrat has sent to us for publi
cation the following communication. In most
of the sentiments we fully concur. Oar read
ers will agree or disagree with theta as they
Dare we say what we believe ?
In these days of terror I presume the right
to express an opinion still exists, though the
reins are drawn so tight that an honest ex
pression' is very easily warped into a design to
cripple the government in its exertions to sup
press the rebellion and save the Union. With
your permission, the following is my opinion,
at any rate :
I believe that there are men in all countries
that cannot bear liberty, independence and
prosperity ;'that the yoke of an absolute mon
arch rests more easily upon their necks than
the lighter rule of Republics ; that some arc
constituted in such way that they would be out
of their element, could they not disturb the
peace of those around them.
I believe that such men existed during the
Revolution, and were in heart enemies to the
cause of independence, and would have openly
taken sides with King George had it not been
for private considerations and interest ; that
these persons were the ancestors of the pre
sent Abolition party in this country, and the
rightful authors of this rebellion.
I believe that man's capacity for self govern
ment is an incontrovertible fact, and only ques
tioned by restless, ambitious and devilish men,
who prefer wielding the sword over the heads
of thou` fellows, to social position amongst
them ; and that the country is infested with
them now to a greater extent than at any pe
riod of the world's history.
I believe that these Abolitionists depended
upon military power to liberate the negro, and
have been fortunate enough to get an instru
ment to accomplish their object in the person
of Abraham Lincoln; that they rejected the
Crittenden Compromise on purpose to get large
armies and navies at their command, with a
view to effect it, regardless of the Constitution
or the horrors of civil war ; that if that Com
promise had been made, it would have disar
ranged all their premeditated plans to over
threw the institution of slavery through the
instrumentality of military power.
I believe that a design to change our form of
government existed in the minds of these rest
leek epirite for years, and that Seward is the
For the Patriot and talon
chief among them now; and this, in .connec
tion with freeing negroce, is the governing
motive in the administration of thegavernment
sot this time.
I believe that the first meeting .ef Abolition
ists that ever Resembled in this oeuntry ought
to have been dispersed, and that every petition
sent to Congress praying for a dissolution of
the Union ought to have been burned in the
presence of both houses of Congress, and their
signers arrested and hanged by the neck for
treason against the government; that if this
had been looked after and done, Maryland,
Delaware, Virginia, Missouri, Arkansas and
Kentucky would have voluntarily abolished
siavery, through the •conrse of time, and no
civil war would have cursed this people.
I believe that a firm determination exists
among tkese fanatics •that the war shall not
cease until slavery is extinct on this continent,
though the end be reached through the -most
barbarous atrocities that ever disgraced hu
I believe that servile ineurreetion is expec
ted and invited as one of the chief means to
effect universal emancipation, and would at
this moment be hailed with exceeding joy, even
at the expense of the lives of thousands of in
nocent and helpless women and children in the
I believe that a something is secretly on foot
to thin out the ranks of the Democratic party,
so as to prevent a trim expression of the popu
lar will; that leagues of men calling them
selves Union Leagues will be formed out of
the Abolition party, and before we look around
home guards will be formed under the author
ity of the general government, and composed
of these men exclusively, thus giving them a
right to vote, whilst Democrats will be sent
into the fi eld to get them from the polls,
further belieie that if an early expression
of popular indignation does not take place our
government will go to destruction. I believe
more things yet, but perhaps no one will pay
any attention to what I have written.

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,
ANDREW G. CURTIN,
Governor or the said commonwealth.
Information having been obtained by the War
Department that a large rebel force, composed
of cavalry, artillery and mounted infantry, has
been prepared for the purpose of making a raid
into Pennsylvania, the President has therefore
erected two now departments—on t i t , B io ta%
Pennsylvania, to be commanded by Major Gen
eral Couch, and the other in Western Pennsyl
vania, commanded by Major General Brooks.
I earnestly invite the attention of the people of
Pennsylvania to the general orders issued by
these officers on assuming the command of their
respective departments. The importance of im
mediately raising a sufficient force for the de
fence of the State cannot be over-rated. The
corps now proposed to be established will give
permanent security to our borders.
I know too well the gallantry and patriotism
of the freemen of this Commonwealth to think
it necessary to do more than commend this mea
sure to the people, and earnestly urge them to
respond to the call of the General Government
and promptly fill the ranks of these corps, the
duties of which will be mainly the defence of
our own homes, firesides and property from
Given under my hand and the great seal of the
State, at Harrisburg, this Twelfth day
of June, in the year of our Lord one

of the Commonwealth the eighty-seventh.
