TILE NATIONAL PLATFORM,
PU&BOSES OF THE WAR.
Congress, by a vote nearly unanimous, passed
the following reselution, which expresses the
voice of theliation and is the true standard of
u.That the .present deplorable civil war has been
'forced Amon the country by the disunioniata of the'
Southern States. now m arms against the Constitutional
+Government, and in arms around the Capital; that in
this National emergency, Congress, banishing all feel
ing of mereparaion or resentment, will recollect oily
its duty to the *tole eenntvi that this war ir . no t
isiged on their-part in oast spurt of oppression, or jar
any .purpose of c onquest . or subjugation, or purpose of
overthrowing or- interfering with therights or established
institutions of those States t 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 eteeemptished the War ought to cease."
Case of Wm. Borland.
We invite - attention to the statement of Mr.
Wm. Borland, of Cumberland county, in alio
iher column. Mr. B. is a respectable man, and
loyal to the •Constitution and his country.—
That much we can attest. Upon information
of *George 'Bergner, (having committed no
offence,) he waszed by military authority,
and for three days and nights wronnfullv held
*nun, - mere appearing to be no evi
dence against him worthy of credit, he was
discharged. It was as gross an outrage as ever
The President will Enforce the Dreft.
Horace Greeley—as undoubtedly every other
ultra Abolitionist and Republican—"learns
witk the airteeratdeligh.t, that President Lincoln
has declared his determination to "ENFORCE
THE DRAFT UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTAN
CES." it frerther rejoices the Philosopher fbd
all other good Abolitionists and ultra Republi
cans to "know that the People will stand by"
the President (he calls him the "Government")
in this "enforcing". operetion. We fancy the
Philosopher and his friends feel more delight
over the determination of His Excellency, the
President, than the "People" do upon whose
support he so confidently relies. Horace may
be a Philasopher, but 'he has proven himself
to be a poor prophet in more instances than
one—and in this instance he and his friend
the President may find the "circumstances," in
New York, at least, rather perglezing.
Governor .Seymour has assured the people,
that the draft will be suspended for the time
being, that they shall he protected in all their
rights, that the constitutionality of the act of
Congress under which the draft is being made
shall be tested, and that the decisions of the
courts shall be maintained. If the courts de
clare the law unconstitutional, it would be not
only unwise, but perilous for the adminietr a-
Aim to attempt to override the decision. This
would be establishing a dangerous preeedent.
'awed. for law' is the only security we have
,for the permanency of our Gtieernment, and
.our temporary rulers should be the last to set
the example of disrespect for the laws of the
Land, for by so doing they inaugurate revolu
tion, dissolve the bonds which hold society to
gether, and pie age the country into anarchy
If 'after our recent successes more men are
Fitill needed for the restoration of the Union,
a call upon the States far their necessary
quotas would, doubtless, be promptly answered
by volunteers, or filled by a State draft_ This,
in one opinion, is the only constitutional
method. Any other is an experiment.
President Lincoln is undoubtedly strong.
He is clothed with dictatorial power—as far as
acts of Congress. in violation of the letter and
spirit of the Constitution can confer it—and
he has shows hUaselt aut disiaalined to use it.
But even strong men have fallen. Right acme
times prevails over might. History is replete
with instances wherein rulers, assuming too
much, have lost all. Even despots—in govern
ments always despotic, where the subject, or
Serf, was edgcated to bear tyranny patiently._
have, by straining their power to its utmost
tension, and. layingthe last feather on the
camel's back, fallen by revolution, or the knife
of the assassin. What -folly, then, if neither
subjects nor serfs will bear an over-burden of
tyranny, to imppsso that latkerieall eitmensi—
educated to freedom, with, all their rights, and
the exact power of their rulers de
fined by constitutions and laws, and as familiar
to them as the faces of their households—will
tamely submit to unwarranted and arbitrary
exactions. Mr. Lincoln, and the. party , BUB
taining him in his usurpations, should reflect.
The memory of the elder Adams is held in de
testation to this day, and will be forever—and
yet the very worst•of hie many had acts was
by no means so detestable as many dihe lesser
criminalities of his administration. They

is that event it , would bons unorganised,

legions of the administration ; bat men as good
and as true as themselves, organized, andcffi.-

consegnence, secure in the consciousness that
they were fighting for the preservation of con
stitutional rights .and guarantees against a
usurping rower that would destroy them and
subvert the Government.. And recollect fur
ther, that in Book a conflict' not all' the. bayo
nets in the army would be turned against the
people. Those who would be engaged in such
a struggle against lawless oppression have
fathers and sons and brothers—whole brigades,
divisions and corps of them in that army who.
if they fired m charged at all, would fire and
charge against >the oppressors of their blood
and the enemies of their country.
3.efore needlessly and cruelly provokatg
'fresh revolution by retorting to unnecessarily
extreme measures, it will be well for those who
contemplate the act to pause and consider
these things. Revolution in the North is death
to the administration and its party. To all
political death—to tens of thousands literal
and bloody eeatit.
No monarch apparently sat more securely
en his throne .one day before the rerolution
broke at than Louis :Philippe, King of 'the
French. Paris literally bristled with bayo
nets, and as ens dreamed, twenty-four hours
before the accomplishment of the fact, that any
power in France could move the solid founda
tions of his thene or pluck the kingly diadem
from his head. What occurred ? • The people
demanded 'of him same concessions, Bonier ex
&Won of their r prividegm The Peg M one
time was inclined to yield. " Sire," Said M.
Guirot, "yield not,. No monarch •in Europe
sits more firmly on his throne than your
Majesty." In twenty-four hours that Mug,'
who listened to the bad advice of a Minister,
in spite of all :kis bayonets, was hurled from
his throne, a. fugitive for life, and ended his
days in exile. Here is a' lemon 'which Mr.
Lincoln may study with profit:.
The French people asked an . extension. of
privilagea, and, because it-was refused, over
turned the throne and'drolit the petildiOtto Men
arch from France.
The. American; ,people ask no extension of
rights—buttrut3ting in aGod of Justice, in their
own brave hearts and strong arms, 'they mean,
at all hazards, and. under alt circumstances,
to preserve the rights they have—rights that,
by maws and the Berms of the Constitution,
belong te them.
Let us be precisely understood. The event
of which we speak is not of the nature
of the recent uprising in: the city of New
York and elsewhere.. Upon all such Move
ments it should. he tha t.
savie, the proper restraints which the execn"
tors of law have it in their power to bring to
bear. We hold all such demonstrations equal
ly at fault in policy and prindiple—they never
attain the cads they at—they take upon
themselves, without trhe ,color of any authority,
the construction of thelaw in advance of and out
of the hands of those whose duty it is to decide
upon their propriety, and those whose prerog
ative it is to see to it ihatuo improper legisla
tion be put in execution in defiance of decisions
so rendered by the duly constituted ,tribtaitela
of the land. They are unfortunate for all con,-
eerned, universally impracticable in their re
sults, besides being in open opposition to all
established rules for the - .Welfare and good
governance of society. It is not from an nn
organized and desperate rabtde we would ex
pect a refuge against rights Utvaded and broken
laws, oppression and Usurpation—but through
the action of the separate States, in their legis
lative bodies, their. courts and the chosen
guardians of their sovereign rights. When
these move in concert to oppose the projected
oppressions of fatuttiOiera and in dues, the
may the reckless usurpers who persist, if they
will persist, in overriding the sacred covenant ,
of our liberties, tremble—tlion may the revo
lution of which we speak be ripe and powerful:

, information,'sworn to by George Bergsser,Tost
-master, I deem it due to myself and my friends
to publish a statement of the facts in the oast,
'andirope you will give-this letter an insertion
in your valuable journal.
One of my neighbors went to Baltimore on
the Friday before the railroad was torn up be
low York, to collect money due for flour be had
previously Bent down, and not having returned
at the time appointed his-wife became very
much alarmed for his safety. The rebels at
the time were in the near vicinity and people
flying in all directions. which would naturally
arouse the fears of a -woman, and to quiet her
mind I agreed to go to -Harrisburg and send a
dispatch to Matthew & Fitzbue of Baltimore,
to know if her husband Was there. When
about to start I told the person who carries the
mail from this point to Harrisburg that if it
would accommodate him, I would take the mail
along and bring it back again when I returned.
He gave it to me and I got a pass at the west
end of the bridge, went over to the city and
completed my business. When ready to return
I found it difficult to get a pass, and called
upon Oeo. Bergner, Postmaster, requesting him
to give me a note . to •General Couch, which
would procure me a pass, as I was carrying
the mail. He ached me ialy hatri,.eivrote a note
and handed it to me, upon presentation of
which I got a pass. 'When it was being signed
Captain Tarbdtton asked the officer signing it,
whether it was necessary for me to come up
every time for a pass ? Without replying be
wrote upon it "until further orders."
On Sunday morning returned to Harris
burg with the expectation of getting an answer
to the dispatch I had sent to Baltimore, and
when abotit to return lime I was arrested by
Gee. Bergner, handed over to the military au
thorities and east by them into a filthy dun•
geon at Camp Curtin,. where I was kept for
three days and three nightlin solitary confine
ment, without having an oppo#unity to com
municate with my friends. The dark dungeon
in which I was confined had evidently been
used as a privy, and the lour arid, wails were
covered with human excrement, among which
the maggots rolled and crawled, and the odor
from which was sickening in the extreme.
On Wednesday evening I was taken before
the Provost Marshal; where I found that my
accusers had been before me, giving in their ex
pane testimony, and yet no charge had been sus
tained against me. After this I was kept in
confinement twenty-four hours longer, await
ing the •leisure of General Couch to examine
the testimony and decide/upon it.
e Bergner swore that -I had obtained my pass
through false representations. This Is simply
a lie. I procured the pass fairly and honor
ably as_ above stated. 'My mission was a kindly
one, to relieve the fears of my neighbor—a
woman—and to accommodate the regular mail

Thursday morning it was discovered that the
enemy had been strongly reinforced both on
Big and Little Folly Islands, and their barges
with which to make the attack on Morris
Island were tied to the piles in the creek.
There were four monitors outside, two at the
mouth of Stono river, and onein the river. The

The firing on both sides ceased about half

The whole four were engaged throughout
the action, and in the afternoon their fire upon
Battery Wagner was very severe. We learn,
however, that the battery was very slightly

of our shots, says they struck and rolled off
the aides and decks of the Monitors 'like so
many marbles or pebble-stones. Capt. Has

they moved up toward City Point on Sunday ;
and from still another quarter—a gentleman

their choice of these rumors, as it is
possible to aticertain their truth.
THE YANICEEB ON JAMES RIVER
- The Richmond Examiner, Of the 13th, says:
"Information was received here on Sanlrday
night that two monitors, eight gunboats and a
flotilla of transports had made their appear
ance at Brandon, on the lower James river.—
The transports were said to be crowded with
troops, which they were landing on the south
side of the river. Yesterday a report was re
ceived from the same source stating that the
transports had not landed any troop's, but that
the whole fleet were moving still higher up the
river: If all that we have mentioned be true
it would seem to indicate that the Yankees still
have a hankering after Fort Darling."
