"These States are glorious in their individuality,
but their collective glories are in the Union. By
all means, at all hazards, are they to be main
tained in their integrity and the full mutant of
their constitutional nghts—for only so is the Union
to be preserve onlyso is it worth preserving.
It is the perfection of the prismatic colors, which
blended, prodnee the ray of light- It is the com
pleteness of these assembled sovereignties, lacking
nothing which they lave not lent for a great pur
pose, that makes the Union precious. This word
Union is a word of gracious omen. It implies
confidence and affection—mutual support and pro
tection against external dangers. It is the chosen
expression of the strongest passion of young hearts.
It is the charmed circle within which the family
dwells. It is man helping his fellow-man in this
rugged world. It is States, perfect in themselves,
confederated for mutual advantage. It irthe peo
ple of States, separated by lines, and interests, and
institutions, and usages, and laws, all forming one
glorious nation—all moving onward to the same
sublime destiny, and all instinct with a common
life. Our fathers pledged their lives, their for
tunes, and their sacred honors, to form this Union
—bet oars be pledged to maintain it."--Gro. W.
WooDwanD, July 4, 18.51.
When a soldier returns to his election district,
ke renames all the civil rights of eitizenthip, and
his residence being unimpaired by his temporary
absence, he has a right to vote on election day, but
under the Constitution, to which Ms fealty is due,
he can acquire no right to vote elsewhere, except by
a change of residence from one district to another.
* * The learned judge deprecates a con
struction that shall Disowkirciusz our volunteer
soldiers. It strikes us that this is an inaccurate use
of language. The Constitution would disfranchise
no guahfied voter. But, to secure purity of elec
tion, it would have its voters in the place where they
are but known on election day. If a voter volun
tarily stays at home, or goes on a journey, or joins
the army of his country, can it be said the Consti
tution has disfranchised him Four of the judges
qua court ; living in other parts of this State,
find themselves, on the day of every Presidential
election, in the city of Pittsburg, where their official
duties take them and where they are not permitted
to vote. Hoyt they a right to charge the Consti
tution with disfranchising them g Such is our case
and such is the case of the volunteers in the army.
The right of suffrage is carefully preserved for
both then: and us, to be enjoyea when we return to
the places which the Constitution has appointedfor
its exercise.—Gro. W. WOODWARD.
By the 95th MIMS of the sot of Assembly
of the State of Penneyheld:. of 2d July, 1889,

If this statement is true, as reported to us
by the father—James Allman—it is a regular
case of kidnapping, and should be severely pun

ous violations of private rights, practiced by
petty officials "dressed in a little brief author

and unpopular in itself, perfectly adieus to the
people. The provost marshal, is justice to
himself and to the administration, should at

private rights, and of law and justice. If the

The Slick Man In the Field'
Governor Curtin, whose health was very
precarious immediately before the adjournment
,ef the Legislature—so far gone, indeed, that
he felt himself obliged to decline being again
a candidate, and to resort to the invigorating
influence of sea breezes and foreign air, which
a European mission, kindly tendered him by
the National Executive, invited him to enjoy—
has now so far recovered his strength and
spirits as to travel night and day electioneer
ing for reelection to the very office for which
he positively declined a renomination. The
foreign mission seems to be entirely forgotten
in the new-born zeta for reelection. The bro
ken constitution of his Excellency, which was
rapidly falling to pieces under the pressure of
Executive duties and the enervating atmos
phere of his native State, seemed to recuperate
rapidly after his official declination had quieted
the suspicions of his adversaries and lulled
them into inactivity. Soon after the adjettrn
ment he found pretexts plenty for visiting the
western counties of the State. He courted the
lake breezes and pure mountain atmosphere,
and, in company with Morrow B. Lowry and
other high-toned, honorable gentlemen, whose
principles are measured by their interests, he
showed himself to admiring crowds in Erie and
Crawford counties, in whose presence be still
played the farce of it the sick man," confiding
the enactment of the real play of which he
was to be the hero, without appearing in that
character, to Mr. Lowry and other prominent
actors, who were in the secret. And they
performed thole parts well. All the conside
rable towns on the line of route were notified
of the approach of the sick elephant, and little
crowds collected together to bid him welcome
and eympathice with him in his distress. He
was too unwell to talk much. In fact, although
improved in health by the mountain air, or
"mountain dew," or some other healing talm
to be always found in the western districts, he
was yet too feeble to do more than whisper a
sentence or two of thanks to his anxious
Mends, and then, supported by stalwart arms,
totter to hie room to enjoy an hour's repose
and proper refreshments previous to pursuing
his journey. At this interesting point of the
proceedings, the sick Governor closeted and
comforted, the other actors would step upon
the stage and perform their parts. The game
was to nominate him for reelection by the pop
ular voice, to force him, as it were, to yield to
the clamor of his friends, break the solemn
promise he had given, and submit himself to
the guidance of those who assumed to inow
better what further strain his health would
bear s - and what course he ought to pursue,
than he did himself. In the presence of the
slim assemblages called together for the pur
pose, before the ink was scarce dry on the
"Special Message" announcing to the Legis
lature and the people hie declination, Morrow
B. Lowry nominated him for Governor for a
'mooed term, with his full knowledge and as
sent, and a few feeble huzzas from the crowd
in response, in one or two places, wee claimed
as an endorsement by the popular voice.
Shrewd men saw at once the drift of the move
ment, and many inquiries were made, through
vedette ItePublican papers, as to his Excel
lency's intentions; but these inquiries received
no notice from Curtin, Lowry . Si Co., and no
satisfactory, ingenuous reply from any quar
ter. The Telegrptph was directly appealed to,
and the Teicgreph answered falsely, as it knew
at the time—that Gov. Curtin steed pledged
not to be a oatididate, and, as an honorable
man, he could not and would not be. This is
the substance of the language need by the een.
tral organ of Curtin, and this is the substance
of every reply to the inquiries made that fel
under our notice.
Yet Curtin had never In reality, ceased be
a candidate for one moment, and all his inti
mate friends, the unscrupulous rascals whom
he could trust with his infamous m cret, knew
it, and aided him in the plot to deceive and
throw off their guard the men of the Republi
can party who had lost confidence in him, and
wanted a new and more worthy candidate.
Everybody now admits that Curtin played a
dishonorable game—that he was guilty of de•
liberate deception and falsehood—and yet the
party press, and men who claim to be honora
ble, have the audacity to represent him to the
people of Pennsylvania, s eivilians and soldiers,
as a candidate worthy of their support!
We look upon him as the unprincipled can
didate of an unprincipled party—as a man
who, having ones been guilty of deliberate
falsehood and deception, is no longer trust
worthy—as a very low demagogue, surrounded
and supported by those who are still lower and
more infamous—and we appeal to the citizens
of Pennsylvania, in and out of the army, to
save the State from the ruin and disgrace
which his reelection would bring upon us.
R.eturnlng Reason_
The moderate Republicans are cutting loose
from the radicals, who have overwhelmed their
party and, as Wendell Phillips says, sunk it
deeper than political plummet ever sounded,
and we have no doubt will in the future act
with the Democratic party. They see the
hand writing on the wall which betokens the
downfall of Abolitionism or the destruction of
our republican form of government, and under
the circumstances they cannot but choose the
side of their country. Senator Sherman. of
Ohio, in a speech et - Dayton recently,
' "A great deal is said about the President's
emancipation proclamation. My idea of it is
that this war would have been prosecuted more
successfully if atoll President had not , said any
thing about the negro."
But the following from the Newburyport
Herald, a Republican paper, is still more sig
Is Seven-eighths of the ireople. An of them
out of New England, except such as have
freshly emigrated from here, and a few red
Republican Germans, would be in favor of
restoration of the Union upon the old basis,
leaving all questions of local institutions
aside, and letting the punishment of the rebel
leaders take place under National or 'State
laws, as they have always existed. If, there
fore, the opposition should make this the grand
issue, they *mid force the Republicans to say
yes or no to it. if they assented, the North
would be a unit with the exception of the Abo
litionieta, who would not carry more than two
States for their theory of subjugation, exter
mination, ruination and damnation. If, on
the ether hand; the radicals should get the as
cendancy in the conventions, and say no to
the proposition for restoring the Union as it
was, then they would fall into a lesser minor
ity than did the Whig party of 1852,"
The Abolitionists, who now rule the admin
istration with absolute sway, have already de
cided the question spoken of by the Herald,
and against the restoration of the Union aa it
was. Ne conservative, therefore, can act with
them hereafter; and irrorder to
-be consistent
the Republicans can have no alternative in the
coming contest but to join with the Democracy
in totally destroying the political power of this
race of madmen.
A Monster National Bank.
One of the most dangerous instruments of
centralism for crushing oat the liberties of the
people, was placed in the hands of the present
administration by the 'met to provide a na
tional currency," and Secretary Chase seems
determined to avail himself to the fullest ex
tent of its deadly influence and power_
All will remember the corrupting influence
of the old United States Bank—in fact it in
augurated in Pennsylvania an era of corrup
tion, and did more to demoralize the Stgte
than all other causes combined. All will re
member also, how it stretched out its grasping
hands in every direction in attempting to con
trol the entire business of the patio's and the
bankrupicy, ruin and dietreso it brought upon
the country, when it finally fell to pieces in
consequence of its innate rottenness.
The monster scheme of Mr. Chase contem
plates the crushing out all banks, and furnish.
ing the entire currency of the country, which
would make it a much more formidable 'engine
of oppressien than was the old United States
Bank. The onerous taxation imposed upon
the State Banks by the last Congress, failing
to destroy their vitality, the Secretary has
commenced a deadly war upon them, and seems
determined to destroy the little life left in them
by the act of Congress. - Upon this subject
the Journal of Commerce says:
Hostilities have fairly commenced. When
the "act to provide a national currency" , was
under dissuasion in Congress, we warned, the
people that its design was to crush 'the' State
institutions, which had contributed so Jargely
to the growth and prosperity of the country,
and to . build on their ruins a gigantic political
machine, controlled at Washington, to be used
as the old United States Bank was in its last
days, to corrupt the heart of the nation. Our
first proposition is now fully admitted by the
authorities, at Washington. Those editors,
therefore, who took us to task for our predic
tics, and who insisted that there could be no
antagonism between sound, well managed State
banks and the financial pets of the . Treasury,
will please to review their logic, and recall their
We have the very highest authority for say
ing that it is the design and intention of the
government to shape its action so as to force
all existing banks in the United States to wind
up their affairs and withdraw from the bid,
in favor of institutions to be established under
Mr. Chase's system, and CONTROLLED at Wash
ington. , •
For this purpose the new "Comptroller of
the Currency," under the direction of Mr. Sec
retary Chase, has already set his machinery
in motion to drive the State banks to the wall.
In a circular he has sent to the faithful, he says
that there will not be, for long, two systems of
corporate honking in the United States: One
or th e other, he 9, l 34ertil, will fully . occupy the
field, "and it requires no spirit of prophecy to
predict which of the two is destined to give
way." "Banks whose issues are secured by
the government, and which are to became the
financial agents of the government, will ; in my
014 1 09N-Orei long be ::the only ones that VIII Ate
tolerated.". With strange logic he declares
this tantagonism between the two systems to be
. unneceesary .but . inevitable. It is nd wonder
that the assertion of this impending conflict
called outgoing stirring questions from those in
terested in the former system. We have copies
of some .of , these qneries, with the Comptroller's
answer. Perceiving the hostility of the an
thorities toward the State banks, one of them
isks if the Comptroller does not mean to fur
nish them with the national circulation as re
,by the act ? He replies that this is in
the law and must be obeyed, if insisted on ;
but that .he shall execute that portion of the
act with reluetanee, as he considers it a great
mistake" to have permitted them this !MN-l
iege. He hopes that the prohibitions in State
laws will prevent the Stare banks from availing
themselves of this provision; but if enabling
acts are passed by the State , Legislatures, he
shall only furnish the currency when "com
pelled," and with great "regret."
This is singular language for a sworn officer
of the government, at the head of a greet de
portment, to use in reference to an act of Con
gress dlislikes that portion of the act
which plaits say Prilikger3 to existing State
institutions, deems it a mistake, and will only
execute it when compelled, and then with re
gret ! We wanted our readers of the despotism
to be exercised by the national authorities over
their financial emirs through the medium of
this fer•reaching and most eppresAve enact
ment; but we never once dreamed that the on
slaught on the banks where moat of the na
tion's moneyed capital is 'resew ed. would he
commenced atter tnis reckless fashion. The
head of this depart went, set apart for this very
purpose, openly ennouncee that he will not
even show these banks the little grace given
them by the act itself, except upon compul•
But why this hostility to sound, well-man
aged State banks, if there is no necessary' an
tagonism between the systems? Even this is
no longer a State secret. They are ie institu
tions,'exclaims the Comptroller, " ow which
the government can exercise no snpervision or
control." This, then, is the object of these
schemers. They will have no banks nor bank
ers, hut snob as the politicians at Washington
c'.n cuperviec cod control. Thr old insiitudons
were not facile enough for partisan uses. Cap
italists were willing to lend their personal in
fluence to carry an efer bon, hut they hesitated
about placing their whole banking machinery
at the disposal of the wire-pullers Henna th 6
"antngoniew." The intention of the new law,
this officer elsewhere declares to be, to provide
for " National Batiks, which should he subject
to government supervision and control."
Tu New Yet k Times melba to appreciate
one important tact, whit h we wish st._a as well

Timm However, this• doctrine'is that which
will be speared by oho country. and that upon
which peace will come. The doctrine of State
suicide will never be accepted and acted upon
as a National policy. Mrs Sir Jellaby Sumner
with her "Telescopic Philanthropy" intends to
have the States—all South of Mason and Dix
on's line—reduced back again to the original
wilderness, whose only inhabitants shall be
nymph and dryad of the Ethiopic skin. Then
when they come into the Doren again, they
shall come purged of all the dross and stain of
white populations and institutions. He an
nounces in Faueuil Hall that the only peace
that is to come, must be on the basis of abso
lute liberty to all. Mr. Phillips announces in
the Cooper Institute that he hopes disaster will
teach utile take the right stand, and that is on
the basis of universal liberty and equality ;
and Sir Oracle Whiting, catching the cue, di
lates on the idea, and proclaims that whole
States, and their institutions, must be swept by
the board—that ten millions must be reduced
back again to original chaos, by the omnipo
tenets of the North, out of Which 'shall rise the
Goddess of Liberty, clothed—irritable. What
a pity that Dean Swift was born and died so
soon; 'it is a lose to this age. that Cobbett is

their trade.
We hear it rumored that Solicitor Whiting •
has given a decision against the spots on the
sun, and that decision is "out damned spot,"
Of course, the stock of the gas tiompanies is up.
Some say, however, that this is the verdict of
posterity on the Solicitor.
He warns the existing institutions not to
break up this pleasant and profitable arrange
ment, by attempting to thrust themselves into
the circle, with a desire to , retnain partly under
State, and partly under National oontrol. If
they insist upon it, he admits that he must
obey the not, but they will lind no favor at his
hands. He *dares that he will fi rst supply
his pets with currency, so that he cannot con
sider their case at any rate until next year.
Before this time he hints that "a judicial de
°Mien, or en authoritative opinion," may cut
them off altogether. He plainly tells them that
" it would be better to wind up their present
State institutions. and organize new associa
dons, independent of the old ones."
To show how completely these State banks—
some of which have been landmarks amid the
severest storms which have marked the century
—are to be blotted out without even a token
for memory, we will bring forward at present
but one other leaf from this startling corres
pondence. One questioner, who seems to have
foreseen how }utile would be any opposition
to this despotic crusade, asks, tremblingly,
whether by surrendering himself to national
control, he may not still be permitted to retain
his old corporate name ? The answer crushes
Out the last spark of hope. "The SeOrotary of
the Treasury, after much consideration, has
come to the conclusion that all such associa
tions should have a COMMON NAME !" To use
his own illustration, instead of the Chemical
Bank of New York, we are to have the National
Bank, of New York, No 501 Historic connec
tions might have a restraining power, and make
the bank more restive under the central control.
A Dann of renown hall been known to keep
even an unprincipled man from a base deed.—
A Haticocx might remember his ancestors, and
blush at infamy; but "White man, No. 347,"
would have no such historic associations to re
strain him from bending the supple knee. "It
is not the name of a bank," ands this Solon,
"but the character of the men who conduct its
affairs and the character of its securities, that
give to it the confidence of the public." But
how do the public know anything of this char
acter except by associating its excellence with
the name which has stood for more than a gen
eration as a synonym for strength and integ
rity ?
We submit that, we have proved our case.—
The governtnent intend 04 force all existing
banks to wind up their affairs, and to merge
their existence, even to the abnegation of their
very names, in a grand cordon of associations,
subject. to supervision and control at Washing
ton, In our neat article on this theme, we
shall show some of the methods and purposes
of this control, and the corruption to which it
will naturally lead.

by about 200 rebel cavalry, and forced to re
treat. During the skirmish Lieut. Burgess's
horse was shot, but the Lieutenant succeeded
in hiding in the bushes, and saw the rebels
ride by in pursuit of his men. He theu, made
his way to the Potomac, and erosas.d at Paint
of Rocks. There he learned that a large num
ber of Imbeden's cavalry had gone down the
The whole force of Imboden and White
&Mounted to about 1,000 men.- They were de
terred from crossing at Edward's Ferry by the
infantry stationed there. At Point of Rooks
it was rumored that a force of 5,000 or 6,000
rebels were attempting to cross below, and
several pieces of artillery were sent thorn to
prevent such an attempt from being successful.
To-night there are rumors that .a large force of
rebel cavalry were at Great Falls, fifteen miles
from Washington, probably the same body.
Our cavalry have been sent in pursuit, and
can hardly fail to meet the enemy.
FRANKFORT, Ky., Sept. I.—Gov. Bramlette
was inaugurated as Governor of this State to
day. In his inaugural address he contends
that the revolted States did not change their
status by rebelling ; that all that is necessary
for them to do is to return to their fealty and
take their position as States; that the rebel
lion did not remit them to a territorial state.
He says we have now, and will have when
the rebellion closes, the [identical Constitu
tion which extremists seek to destroy, the
one by innovation, the other by force. It is
not a restored Union, not a reconstructed
Union, that Kentucky desires ; but a preserved
Union and a restored peace upon , a constitu
tional basis. The Governor strongly objects
to the arming of negro regiments, and asks
what is to be done with such soldiers at the end
of the war. He points to the result of the re
cent election as a proof that Kentucky will not
fraternize with rebellion, eithernpen or covert,
and declares that Kentucky ever has been and
now is, and always will be, loyal to 'the 'gov
ernment of our fathera.

KANSAS CITY, Sept. I.—About sixty persons,
chiefly heads of families and residents in this
city and vicinity, who are believed to be eiders
and kbettors of the rebellion or strong sympa
thizers with it have been ordered to remove
from the district by Gen Ewing. The list in
cludes many of the most wealthy and influential
families of this vicinity. Their houses will be
taken for the families of Union refugees.
Many orders for the removal of leading
rebel sympathizers at Westport and Indepen

WASHINGTON, Sept. l.—One of the evening
papers of this city tried -to get up en excite
ment this afternoon by giving prominence to a
report that Lee bad crossed the Rappahannock
at CoDWNY, with fifty thousand , troops,
for the purpose of flanking Gen. Meade. Of
course, there is no reason to believe such a re
port, and it is not credited by anybody here.
Parties who have arrived from the front to-day
know nothing Of any such movement of the
enemy baring taken place, and its improba
bility is shown by the crossing having been lo
cated at a point' of the river accessible to our
gunboats, which would have seriously inter
fered with any Finch Quixotic movement.
. .
The capture of the gunboats Reliance and
Btatellite by the rebels still continues to attract,
attention. The eircum seances. of, the, capture .
will no doubt be matin,tho oubjeo. a a search
illg innnetittagen WhORMS the ahem of the
boats are liberated and returned within our
lines, and if it shall preve, as represented, that
they were lost through carelessnes or the cow
ardice of a portion of their officers, the parties
in fault will be adequately punished.
Yesterday six trains went out to the front
heavily laden with conscripts. The army has
no little difficulty with some of the substitutes,
who require almost an equal number of men to
guard them; but the stringent orders. together
with the recent executions, seem to have had
a beneficial effect, and came for complaint
are tow lees frequent.
At the general court martial, of which Gen.
Stough is President, the case of Capt. joseph
Harland, formerly quartermaster of a Massa
chusetts-regiment, was on Ikea to-day, and a
number of officers were examined as witnesses.
The -charges were for desertion,: defalcation,
&o. Their evidedce was strongly agaihet the
prisoner, and showed that be was ordered to
Washington on public duty, having, in his.-pos
session at the time about sixteen thousand
dollars of. -government funds. On his way to
the city he became intoxicated, and, instead
of reporting here, as, Ordered, he continued on
to Baltimore, getting still more intoxicated on
the way., At Baltimore he :drank largely of
champagne, and freely exhibited the money in
his possession, and continued his journey to
his home in Masesebusette. He distributed
the money'around -among his acquaintances,
and paid up some old debts. He then fled to
Montreal, where he was found by the detec
tives, and brought. back to custody.
Captain C. M. Levy, assistant quartermaster,
was arrested yesterday and consigned to the
Old Capitol prison, charged with being a de
faulter. He has for some time been assigned
to the defences north of the Potomac, and has
always enjoyed the confidence of his brother
officers. His case will be investigated ii s few
Captain Johnson, one of the personal aids of
Major General Heintzleman, has been promoted
to the rank of major. He will remoin noon the
staff of General Heintzelman.
Within the past two days Gen. Halted: has
secured ; the appointment of twenty-four young
soldiers, from our armies now in the field, to
eadetships at West Point. The cadetships due
to. the Virginia Congressional districts, are
given to young lads who have distinguished
themselves, and who are otherwise qualified in
the Army .of the Potomac. The cadetships
due to Western Tennessee, Arkansas and Mis
sissippi. are,to be conferred on Gen. Grant's
recommendation. So in the other departments.
And Gen. Halleek farther takes the ground
that next year all appointmen'e to West Point
shall be made from young soldiers in the field,
or the sons of officers who have rendered im
portant services in this war ' • not that the ap
pointments are to be taken from the varlets*
Congressmen in the North and other States,
but that the. Congressmen in their recommen
dations are to be restricted to these clo.sees of
Well informed parties allege that General
M'Clellan's report was only received at the
Adjutant General's Department three weeks
ago, and that it will take one man many moults
to read it and its accompanying documents
with the attention it deserves. It will occupy
when printed three large quarto volumes, with
charts, diagrams, &c. For its publication a
large congressional appropriation will be re
quisite. The Secretary of War has net yet
had time to read it, but is about instituting a
committee of officers to be preqided over by
Maj. Gen. David Hunter, who will be charged
with the duty of reading it and reporting as to
whether or not it shall be published as an offi*
cial doeument.
