"Has the 'radical' press ever taught that the
adminiatration was carrying the war on 'un
conatitutionally,' and for purposes of conquest
—not restoring the Union ?"—Telegraph.
If the "radical" press has not "taught that
the administration was carrying on the war
unconstitutionally," it certainly has claimed
the - right to do so under the convenient "higher
law" than the Constitution, the "war power,"
which, the "radical' press insists, clothes the
President with authority above the Constitu
tion and the laws. And the "radical" press,
including the Telegraph, has, tile and again,
ridiculed the idea of "restoring the Union,"
told us it was folly to think of such a thing,
that it it could not be done, would not be done,
and should not be done. In fact, yes—they
have "taught" that the war was not for a re
storation of the Union, but for freedom—the
emancipation of the negroes—and would
never stop until this was accomplished,
the Southern States converted into provinces,
conquered, subjugated, deprived of every right
and brought, suppliant, to the feet of the ad
ministration_ Many. of them have taught that
it ohenid be a war of conquest—the inhambi
tants butchered, or driven from their homes,
and their lands divided among the soldiers,
negroes and "loyal" Abolitionists. All this
and more that is anti - -republican, anti-consti
tutional, fanatical and barbarous they have
"taught," and yet teach. And this very Tele
graph, whisk new asks whether the !latent
'tress have ever taught the doctrines of the
New York rioters, has winked at, if it has not
applauded every outrage committed upon Don
a:ratio persons and property by Abolition riot
ers, and through its columns not only once, but
often, endeavored to incite citizens and soldierk
"to assault this office, destroy the property and
take summary vengeance upon its owners and
editors. They need but turn to their own files
to stand self-convicted of these charges—and
this has been the character, unscruptious and
atrocious, of the "radical" press, we think,
without a oalitar7 exceptioa.

All the world seems to becon the eve of great
events. Here we have been 'Waging an exten

of Asia it is raging fiercely. In Europe the ati

a summary of their proceedings :

The King refused to withdraw them, and there

either of them perceive, in their blind fana

Tharlow Weed's' Opinion of "Howling
Thurlow Weed, who Was' recently the very
brains of the Republican party, but withdrew
from active participation in its affairs when it
became so far Abolitionized 'as to require no
brains to conduct its policy, has written a letter
to Raymond, of the New York Times, enclosing
$5OO for the relief of the , unfortunate negroes
of that oity who were driven - from their .homes
and stripped of their all by the mob. In this
letter, after alluding to the unreasonable hos
tility of many of the Irish to the negro; and
averring that that hostility is embittered by
the course of Abolition journals and fanatics,
Mr. Weed IMO
"But what cares iVendell Phillips how many
negroes are murdered if their blood furnishes

a There is abundant occasion for the public
abhorrence of mob violence. But when all the
circumstances have been revived, the popular

is struggling for existence, thrust the nnoffend

mobs, will become general and emphatic.

THE WHEAT CROP in this vicinity, we are
glad to be able to state, is not nieterially iu
jured by the late heavy rains. By our own
personal experience from a visit to the.cgun
try, within a day or two, and by conversation
with the owner of three large farms, we feel
authorized' to state that - the damage will in no
case,' here about,. exceed five per cent, of the
crop; while in others, though entire 'fields of
it have been for several days in shook; exposed
to daily rains,' the - grain is wholly uninjured.
Much of that which is cat was no doubt gar

excessive rains in Eastern Pennsylyania and.
South Jersey, may safely be set down as not
exceeding two per cent, and probably not more
than one, while the yield et wheat is ohe of the
