"Tho measures which will olaim tho at

moro important questions which will arise
1. Sanction of tho President's move

3. Act authorising a vigorous prosecu

1. A modification of tho prcsont tariff.

Tho Peace Movement.
Tho rather startling declaration ruado
in tho New York World, of Saturday last,
to the effect that tho Rebel chiefs aro ma
king propositions for a cessation of hostili
ties, and that their proposals aro under
consideration, is reproduced in the Tri
bune and Jlciald of yesterday, though iu
somewhat altered form. Through the
Tribune tho public arc informed that "no
" vigorous military operation is intended
" by tho Administration, and that tho war
" is to bo dragged along until the people,
" weary of armies without action and taxes
" without triumphs, can be brought to con
" sent to somo compromise like that of Mr.
" Crittenden." And both tho Jlciald and
Tribune affirm that Senator Bayard and
Hunter aro in New York at this time,
carrying on secret negotiations with certain
unnamed parties in that city to influence
the Administration to retard tho move
ments of the army until after the meeting
of Congress. Tho basis of these negotia
tions, as given by the last named journal,
is, first, that tho independence of tho re
volted Statos bo rccognizod ; or, second,
that the United States give a perfeot con
stitutional guaranty for the maintenance
aud perpetuation of slavery in all tho pros
out and future territories South of 30 dcg.

amnesty bo grantod for every offenco con
nected with the rebellion, with a guaranty
of all former rights of citizenship, aud to

there may be iu these rumors. Wo give
them for what they aro worth.

Burlingamo not accepted at
Advices havo been received at tho De
partment of Stato of tho refusal of tho
Austriau Government to receive Mr. Bur
lingamo as Minister from this country.
Right. Burlingamo's appointment was
a disgrace to our Government, and wo aro
glad Austria's respect for tho United States
will not permit this man to occupy a diplo
matic teat at Vienna. Burlingamo is an
infidel, aud has, for many years, been a
disunionist a rebel. Just such men as
ho and a fow crazy men in South Carolina,
havo caused our present National calami
ty. York Uazette.
True, every word of it ; and yet, wo ob
serve that the present administration has
such a lovo for tho man who wants an anti
slavery lliblo and an anti-slavery God,
that it has incontinently transferred Anson
G. Burlingamo to China. Rejected by tho
pcoplo who knew him best as their repro
sontativo to Congress, ho seems to be the
pet of Lincoln and his cabinet.
rsrTho N. Y. Tilmne insists that
James E. Harvey, Lincoln's new minister
to Portugal is a traitor ; in which wo arc
disposed to agrco with tho Tribune. Tho
N. Y. World contends that Lincoln knew
ofnarvoys traitorous correspondent bo
foro he wont to Portugal. Now then is
Lincoln a traitor or did he send Ilnrvoy
out of the country, fearing to havo judg.
A Just Discrimination.
A late number of tho New York Tii
bune says, "Supporting tho Union is ono
thing; supporting tho Administration quito
another. Many will fight for the ono and
directly voto against tho other, ns they
havo a perfect right to do. It is by no
means tho special duty nor the special in
terest of Republicans to maintain the
Union." Wo ngrco with a cotomporary
which says that it Is something of a relief
to sco such doctrino as this announced in
tho leading Republican organ of tho coun
try, particularly as somo of tho lesser lights
havo presumed to arraign every man for
treason who docs not go tho full length of
upholding this Administration in all its
acts, constitutional and unconstitutional.
It is a grievous mistake to infer that be
cause Democrats have shouldered their
muskets and volunteered in tho army to
assist in tho grand work of crushing re
bellion and maintaining tho integrity of
the nation, that thoy havo abandoned their
principles, and aro ready to commend
every unconstitutional act that tho Admin
istration chooses to perpetrate in the name
of the Union. While liberty to protest yet
remains they will not do this. We also re
gard it as an evidence of unexampled
frankness for tho Tribune to admit that
it is neither tho special duty nor tho special
interest of tho Republican party to main
tain tho Union, for not longer ago than
last winter tho Tribune violently oppo'ed
every effort for tho preservation of tho
Union, and took tho portion that it was
better for fifty Unions to break than for tho
Chicago platform to bo abandoned.
We sco by hand-bill3 that ono hundred
recruits aro wanted to fill the Zouave Ar
tillery Regiment under command of Col.
James Brady aud Charles Campbell, now
in Camp Curtin, at Harrisburg, Captain
Mathews and Lieutenant Rioketts, aro in
this sectiou at prcsont for the purpose of
recruiting men. Recruits in and about
this place, will report themselves to Lieut.
R. B. Riekotts, at the Exchange Hotel.
The men will bo sworn and niustcrd into
service under tho Stato requisition for
three years or during tho war. It is much
more desirable to join a light artillery
company, than Infantry. The amount of
labor to be performed by artillery men differ
very materially from that required of tho
Iufautry soldier having no musket, h'e
is not required to do general guar d s:rvice,
so while detachments of the Infantry aro
pacing back aud forth, at their posts,
through tho longweary night, tho artillery
men aro sleeping quietly in their quarters.
Therefore wo should very much prefer
joining uu artillery company. Star.

A Millerite Secessionist. John
B. Floyd, who has been appointed a
Brigadier General iu tho Secession Army,
has issued a pronunciamcuto to the people
of his department, which comprises tho
magnificent onc-horso town of Wythesvillo

preacher in Paulding's humorous story
about "Tho End 'of tho World." When
tho final "everlasting smash'' name on, and
tho atmosphero grow suggestively as well
as oppressively hot, that worthy prelate
suddenly discovered, to his great conster
nation, that he had labored so assiduously
for the salvatiou of other men's souls as
to havo entirely neglected his own. It
turns out that Floyd, when Secretary of
War, was so intensely absorbed in stealing
guns for other parts of the South, that ho
forgot to steal any for his own section of

Wo hopo that tho independent press will
speak out with clear distinctness in regard
to tho absolute necessity of competent of
ficers in tho higher posts in tho nrmy.
Tho cntiro nation is hanging its head over
the shameful affair at Great Bethel. An
expedition of fivo regiments sent out to tako
a battery without any suitable knowledgo
of tho work to bo done, when it is a mili
tary rulo always, when it is possiblo, to
gain such information by scouts. Next,
five regiments sent out to storm a battery
with throe or four insignificant field pieces,
leading to tho sacrifico of tho ltfo of a
bravo officer in tho most unnecessary way.
Tins expedition again, is sent out without
means of crossing a narrow stream or ford
ing a ditch, when tho very thing that a
regularly trained officer would expect to
meet in such a case would precisely bo a
Stream or ditch. Next, a niirlil nt noditinn
with one of tho rogimcnts entirely unin -
formed of the siguals by which they aro
to know each other. Next, a surprise ex-
pcditiou and a couplo of tho Colonels firing
at oach other's regiments, killing our owu
men and announcing their approach to
tho enemy. Then we have a general some-
wherein tho rear of his . troop., losing his
head, giving no intelligible orders, with a
regiment waiting for orders an hour and
forty minutes, and at last, just as tho brave
regiment of Huavcs would have taken the
battorv anv how. if thev had been let
alone, tho general recovers his head iu
time to call them off, when tho rebels aro
just turning their backs.
At tho samo timo we have news from
our Pcnusylvania army that there is tho

greatest dissatisfaction with many of their
officers. Tho men arc loyal, devoted to
tho country, willing to fight, and yet mul-

miscliicl is obvious.
The difficulties of which tho country is fcibility of a war was far from remote
complaining do not relate to grand strato. i Tho construction given by British statcs-
gy or great genius for war. Thoy arc
routine matters that every trained officer
is a regular business like law, medicine,
merchandizing or farming, aud no ono un
dcrstands it who has not been trained to
it. The error Consists not in appointing
officers at all from civil life, but in appoint
ing them to' very high positions of great re
sponsibility, and not mingling with them
in suitable proportion regular soldiers.
Hero, for example, are, say a' hundred
or more Colonels, Lieutenant Colonels and
Majors to say nothing of two' or three
times as many Captains who havo served
in tho army twenty or thirty years, and a
largo number of whom have been educated
at West Point. Why not make generals
of somo of thorn ? Why take a man who
could not drill an awkward squad and, as
wo sec, docs not know how to take a small
battery or give an intelligible order in a
slight difficulty, a man who has never seen
the slightest service and make a Brigadier
or Major-Gcncral of him! Why not put
tho civilians iu subordinate places, until
thoy learn something of war, and put tho
veterans iu command f As we said, we
trust tho press will speak out until this mat
ter is remedied. Wo do not desiro that
this nation should learn tho lesson in the
loss of a great pitched battle with the reb

Mr. Cameuon replies that tho United

Let mo remind you that tho present fitful
effort to substitute auother, comparatively
unknown and local, for this world-wide fa
mous banner, is not tho first that has becu
made. The reserved right to nullify your
laws and at discretion to break up your
Government as a cobweb contrivance of
mere state partnership, perhaps mediated
at Hartford in 1814, was certainly and
formally claimed by South Carolina in
1832. At that epoch there wcro giants iu
debate ; and no giaut more formidable or
daugerous than tho author of this subver
sive doctrine. But, gentlemen, it was over
ruled as perverse aud untenable. Tho
calm Senators from this good old Com
monwealth, who wcro William Wilkins, of
J'lttsburgli nnu myselt, steauily insisted
upon hoisting tho "Stars and Stripes'" high
above tho "Palmetto," and I presume
would do so still, aud tho renowned citi
zen of Tenncssco, who had routed tho in
vaders at New Orleans, dispelled by the
mere show of a "Force flil'.," tho delusive
Quixotism which was brave aud blind then
as it is now Nor am I aware that this
decision of Congress has ever undergone
revision aud reversal. It stands on the
records of tho uatiou as a great judgment
upon a question utterly iucapablo of far

agaiust nullifications, which you must be

Camp Ourtin, June 27, 1801.
Quito a chango has como over this placo
sinco my last letter. On last Friday, tho
wholo camp was thrown into a stato of ex
citement by tho announcement that two or
three of tho Regiments wcro to bo ordered
South without delay. Tho cause of this
move was said to bo tho turrouuding of
Col. Wallaco's Regiment by tho rebels.-
For a time, the Iron Guards wcro all on
tho qui vivc, not knowing but that they
might bo so fortunate as to got off) but it
was soon ascertained that tho "buck-tail
Regiment, under Col. Biddle, and another
under Col. Simmons wcro to go. Tho for
mer Regiment has for its Lieutenant Colo
nel tho brother of tho indomiuitablo Artie
explorer, Col. Kane. Tho latter, for a
while, was commanded by Col. Gregg1,
but upon rccciving.tho commission of Cap
taincy in the regular service, ho resigned.
During Friday, confusion and bustle char
acterized tho movements of tho men.
Somo wero putting on quasi uniforms, and
disposing of old clothes which thoy wcro
unablo to carry somo wcro bidding good
bye to friends somo wero preparing ra
tions somo wcro exercising with newly
acquired muskets, and iu this manner
passed tho day and night. Thoy got off
about daylight on Saturday morning.
i Somo wcro dissatisfied with tho uniforms,
which wcro not complete, and others
threatened not to go because tho common
musket was given them in place of the
Minnie musket. However, I understand
that they will be fully equipped and better
armed in a few days. Col. Seller resumed
command of the cauip. Wo feel quito
lonesome siuce tho "buck-tails" havo left
U3, aud the camp appears deserted, though
about two Regiments aro yet here. Col.
Ricketts' is the only one organized.
Last evening we had a little fun. Our
company aud tho Susquehauna volunteers
wcro called out about 8 o'clock, armed
with muskets, aud marched towards Har
risburg with instructions to pick up all the
soldiers wo could find. Wo searched thro'
the streets, alleys, liquor shops and lewd
houses, and by 2 o'clock in the morning
I had collected upwards of two hundred
jmcn. They wcro individually examined
after reaching camp, aud those who could
not give a ttraight account of themselves
wore ordered to tho guard-house. So
many had taken French leave through tho
fence that Capt. Eut, Officer of tho Day,
was obliged to placo a guard around those
whom the guard-homo would not accom
modate. This collection was mado because
Isoiuu ladies had been insulted in the street,
and among the rest tho Governor's wife.
' On last Saturday wo held an election for
officers of tho company. Col. Ricketts'

Regiments hailing fiom New Hampshire,
Rhode Island, New York, and Wisconsin
havo passed through hero lately. Ono
from the latter Stato encamped near hero
for a few days in order to get their mus
kets. A fine looking Regiment from Min
nesota has been stopping here for a few
days in order to get their uniforms. They
aro from tho vicinity of St. Paul. Wo
arc beginning to think that iu a fow days
wo will bo marched from hero to Camp
Lincoln, and that this Camp is to bo bro
ken up. Camp Lincoln is situated ncar
tho North Central Rail Road, one and a
half miles abovo the Maryland Hue, near
Shrewsbury. The ground was formerly
used by tho Methodist denomination as a
graud camping place, aud is said to bo
beautifully situated, possessing good water
and tho requisite shade. It will bo ready
iu a fow days for the meu. Our arms and
uniforms are ready, aud wo expect to don
them in a day or two. Wo havo already
received what wo dou't need at present,
our overcoats. Thoy aro of light blue
cloth, and aro superior iu every way to
anything I have seen. They cost about
15 per coat. Our guns will bo tho Min
nio musket. Wo dou't care about going
very far South without good equipments,
and for this reason, perhaps, Col. RicketU'
Regiment did not leave with the others.
By tho way, Col. Ricketts is tho Com
manding Officer of Camp Curtin.
A petition is in active circulation to per
mit tho company to como to Bloomsburg
on tho bourth of July. It would bo a
nice thing iu caso we got pay, uniforms
and arms. We could go and return in a
boat with little expenso to ourselves.
From letters received from homo, I learn
that mauy flying rumors aro yet afloat in
Columbia County about tho Iron Guards.
It would seem that wo havo left behind us
a miserable set of poltroons, who, to screen
their own cowardice, endeavor to blacken
tho characters of those who havo volun

improvident and helpless negroes of uV

the present interest and futuro welfare '
our pcoplo, violates the Federal Oon-titu-tion,

Statc difficulties and leads to dUunic:.,
