-The President, bylis recent proclamation;
has deprived ue of that sacred writ of liberty
for which the peoples of the world have battled
-for more than three 'hundred years ; he hae
practically abolished' the courts to which we
have been wont to resort for the protection of
our rights under the law, and plated every citi
zen at the mercy of the thousands of petty
officials that now swami throughout the land.
These officials, as every one who has come in
contact with them must feel, though wearing
the badge of servitude to Lincoln, have not been
clothed with infallibility. They are not above
the average of fallible humanity. They are
composed of men subject to passions and preju
dices like men in other positions of life, good,
bad and indifferent; and when they are bad,
their being If dressed in a little brief author•
ity" only serves to bring out, into bolder relief,
their worst characteristics.
Under these cirountstances, is it not proba
ble, nay is it not certain, that many violation,
of law and interferences with the rights of in
dividuals and of States will be committed?
And yet our provincial Governor, instead of
stretching forth his hand to save=s (alien from
injustice; pledges binisell in advance tc
plaud the act of tyranny, and in that way en
courages its repetition. Think of it, fellow
citizens ! A Governor of great' Common
wealth of Pennsylvania, who . has solemnly
sworn to . support the &netitution of the State,
and "see.that the laws see faithfully executed,"
'pledging himself in advance to sanotiou and
encourage the nOlitia* power in trampling
upon the Gonstitutien; and violating the lawe
made to carry out its provisions! This is a
subject in which all are alike interested. It
reaches every fireside in the country.' Any
one of you who'niay incur the spite or malice
of one of Lincoln'statinionais at any time lia
ble to be dragged from his home and, without
warrant.aad without cattle, tlfroWn into some •
guard' house or Fideral'llititlte, there to await
the pleasure of your ; persecutors; and your
Governor, whose sworn duit it is to see that
the lime are enforced and the rights of every
citizen protected, stands pledged to sustain ,
these violations of : liberty and'law, and turn a
deaf ear to-your appeals for justice. Is such
a man worthy of your Supporta the coming

that Mr. William Lewis never was “foreman on

all this, I feel confident that- he never could
have penned or permitted that article to appear'
in his paper ; but in case I' am mistaken in'

Defeat of Gen. Rosman%
The intelligenee.wa publish...444h, while it
confirms the defeat of Gen. Rosecrans, relieves
us of all apprehension as to his present safety.
The telegraph lines being entirely under the
control of Federal offioials, of course the beet
fiee possible is put upon the matter. Gen.
Bragg's official dispatch, however, is sufficiently
in harmony with the other statements' to sat
isfy us that Resecrans is yet formidable, and
that his army, though it has been defeated, is
not demoralized. But looking at the result of
the two day's fighting in the most favorable
light, the fact cannot be concealed that we
have suffered a great disaster, which should
not, and would not, have ecenrred, had the
Army of the Cumberland been reinforced in
time. From operating offensively. Gen. Rose
crane has been compelled to' assume the defen
sive, and all hope of reaching Atlanta and cut
ting the line of rebel communication at that
important,point, as well as of holding Georgia
and Alabama in subjection, and threatening
Richmond, must for the present be abandoned.
. •
Qf course we disbelieve altogether the tele
graphic information that our army will be in
a condition to resume the offensive in "two or
three days." That is sh;nply gonsense, 1.11

' WASHINGTON, Sept. 23.—Dispatches from
General Roseorans, dated Chattanooga, at 3
and 6 o'cl t ooleitesterday'sftarneon, were re
iwadahls,,mortddagetsom ephiek.--itpappases,
that the enemy's attack upon General Thomas'
corps, Rosecrane left, on Monday afternoon,
was handsomely repulsed, and Gen. Thomas
marched quietly to the position his forces were
about to take when they were assaulted.
The official dispatches of Monday evening
stated that two divisions of Longstreet's corps
wore advancing upon Rescerans at 4 o'clock
that afternoon, but it turned out that this
movement was merely for the purpose of re
connoissance, as no attack was made.
General Rosecrans' order for his whole axmy'l
to concentrate, was accomplished before mid-4
night of that day, and it is now in a defensive
position, which can be easily held until rein-f
foreements arrive. The movements of the
troops was executed in excellent order, and,
although they had been worked hard for seven
days and nights, they were in excellent spirits.
Four thousand of our wounded were removed
from the field after the battle of Sunday.
General'llttle was the only general officer
killed on our side, while Bragg acknowledges
the loss of the enemy in officers very heavy.
The regulars—our reserves—went; into the
battle 1,600 strong and *ante out with only
450. This shows the persistence with which'
our troops contested for every inch , of ground.
Gen. Roseanne has performed wonders in
reaehing 'his present position, after fighting
with his single command against the immense
force of ,picked troop° combined against him.
In two or three days he will be able to assume
offensive operations,

Gen. Graham, Who .commanded oae of our
brigades at Gettysburg, and wa,s token,prisoner
and conveyed to Richmond, .has recently.been
exchanged, and reached .here
,this - morning.—
He is satisfied that only two divisions, with all
their artillery, And ~tyro brigades , under Gen.
Pickett, with Wise's legion, have been detailed
to reinforce Bragg. Gen. Graham says, he saw
81 pieces of artillery moving, woes the, bridge
from Richmond, said to be going to Bragg.
The news of the battles fought between
Bragg, and Roseorans was a disappointment to
the rebel authorities at Richmond. They ex
pected to-hear that Boswells had been anni
hilated, and that Bragg had re-taken East
Tennessee. Instead of that, .Richmond is
again thrown into a state of mourning by the
heavy lose Bosecrans has inflicted upon Bragg.

On Sunday an engagement commenced late
in the morning. The first gun was fired at 9

came that he had been forced to retire.

The situation on Che'Rapidan has undergone

According'to private advicee received by the
Fulton, the active sieo of `Charleston, se eon.
ducted during the past few, weeks, would seem
to have been positively suspended. The Moni
tor fleet were doing nothing, and had been si-
lent for several days. .
Notwithstandinethe condition to which Fort
Sumpter was reduced, .the iron-clads appear to
have found it impossible - to - OA Fort Mofiltrie
and the obstruotions beyond, and further effort
to reduce that fortress was therefore scarcely
worth the necessary expenditure of life and
General Gilmore's big guns, from the ho
tariee now erecting at the head. of Morris
Island, are capalPe of hurling on Charleston
storm of derustdtion indefinitely more severe
than what the monitors cogAd fling from their
lighter artillery at &pointul' nearer.
The possession of Morris Island certainly
enables us to maintain a complete blockade of
Charleston harbor; and is a position from
which our land forest_ can operate with in
creased facility and success. But this, if we
may accept the opinion of prominent officers
engaged in the siege, is all the good it has done
the iron. clads_ They move forward no longer_
general Gilmore is still 'ostensibly preparing
to renew the bombardment of .Charleston.—
Whatever the result maybe, Cha*lston will he
taken, if at all, by an advance of the Union
troops overland, not by }he iron.clads moving
victoriously up the harbor.
Another possibility is suggested in view of
present contingencies. Active operations be
fore Charleston being thus in abeyance. a core.
bitted naval and land movement on Wilming
ton, N. C., is hinted at.
Notwithstanding all these reasonable cot
jectures, howeyer, General Gilmore, who is in
the habit of doing strong things in a quie•
way, may astonish the country with an ofd.
cial bulletin, some fine morning near at hand,
Proclaiming that !Charleston is taken."
The New Orleans correspondent of the Wor2!
under date of 15tit September, says :
It is unnecessary to predict what the move
ment upon Houston (Texas) will be—but it has
been ordered from Washington and the march
may begin to-day, Washburne crossing his
men at Berwick Bay. There is not the enthusi
asm on the subject that there was a few days
since ; but the movement will be made—n 3
matter to how little profit, since the employ
ment of the same force against Mobile might
possibly effect the immediate reduction of the
place, and so hasten the close of the war. The
administration has hardly recovered from the
flight about the nearness of peace after the
fall of Vicksburg and Port Hudson ; and it is
thought, no doubt, that a Texas movement
now will " set back" the affairs in this depart
meat upon nearly the same basis they re.stei
on one year ago. •
The registered enemies an getting prirre
notices to - leave. There is nothing new to-day.
A dispatch from Pond Spring, Gs., rith in.
Stant, to the Louisville Journal says :
“The Southern• journals claim a largely su
perior force. I have just seen a late Chatta
nooga Rebel, now published at Marietta, Geor
gia. It contains a call from the Goiernor of
the State for all who can supply themselves
with arms to repair to their nearest railroad
stations for transportation to Bragg's army.—
The Governor informs the People , that he has
already,sent 15,0 00
. men.
• ' , The' Rebel exults over the effects of tha
call, saying that the stations are alive wit::
men who desire to be sent forward to Bragg.
Lee's corps has already joined Bragg."
