Dear iir : Up to tbo present time, I
have Leon a tilent but nttculivo peruser of
the passiug events, and nt preaeut qucs
tions of great importance which agitate
the publio mind. ''America" our native
laud, over which the angel of peace has so
long spread its wings, is now agitated hy
the strife of brethren. Oh ! America, the
iioblcit Government on earth ; must thy
check be mantled with shame. Ua3 the
horrors of "civil war"' darkened tho paged
of American history. Oun part of our
Government under armi against tho other,
and without hesitation they meet in dead
ly strife ! The eyes of all nations are
now resting upon us. They stand amazed
ut tho tremendous warliko preparations, of
both north and eouth and with eagerness,
they await tho result. The period has
arrived, which was long predicted by our
ancestors. The animosity which has been
nurtured in tho bosom of Ecctioual men
has broken forth iu all its fury, and it now
remains to bo decided, by tho "Olho
Branch or by tho sword,'' whether our con
stitution) are to bo maintained or destroy
ed, and the fairest government ever devis
ed by man cease to cxKt. A separation is
other States may "feccdu" also, liut we
have a better opinion of our men, and
means. Our Government will yet bo saved
from the hands of tho "assassin and pi
rate '' The utmost confidence is reposed iu
tho venerable chicftan whoio arm never
waned iu battle and whoso .shoulder was
never turned on a foe.
Iiiko bravo men wo fchould lay all par
ty spirit aside and with one consent meet
the usurpers of our Government. Tho
great men (irrespective of partyisui) oven
now battling for our Nationality, and why
should any man so deprave himself as to
provo recreant to tho trust and privila
ges of au amcrican citizen. The name it
self will inspire our men to deeds of valor.
Hundreds of our youth are now marching
to battle. Nay victory, follow their foot
steps from Stato to State, and plant the
emblems of our nationality on every battlo
ground front tho "llio Graude to the Miss
issippi." MAINK TOWNSHIP

Dear Col. Talc; Doctor John, sicms
to bo very irritable when wo refer him to
tho HepuLlican creed. Now when aboli

iuto a pet if reference is made to it. He
even ignores his brother Grecly, who is
the soul and body of Republicanism. If
tho Doctor makes a few more concessions
I might get to see his paper without "bor
rowing" it. Keep cool, dear Doctor, it is
Dog Days. Some thiuk it affects "weak
minds," and tho ''wilful natures" tho Doe

a distempered imagination, resulting in

I can sympathiso with the Doctor,for there

Sir In tho last Columbia Demo
crat, of tho 3d inst., I sco a reply to my
stricture! on Dr. John's sneer at "the jij.
noranec of the pcojrfi of the hack toton
ships," tby a fellow who signs himself
"Jeffersouian Hcpublioan.'' "Tho signa
ture is certainly an anomaly. To connect
the name of Jefferson tho apoatlo of De
mocracy," with a modern republican, docs
sound homogenous. Jefferson tho slavchol
dcrin union with Anti-slavcry,for it needs
but littlo argument to show, that tho lead
ing clement in tho Republican Party is
In tho first place, look at tho two most
prominent men at the helm, Sewirtl and
Chase, (wo will leave Mr. Lincoln, out as
Mr, Hichardson says ho is an honest man,
if they would let him alone,) look over tho
history of these men's lives for tho last
twunty years. Seward's "Irrcprcssiblo
Conflict," his saying when Lincoln was
elected, wo (tho Hcpublioan Party) will
inaugurate a policy lhat would do away
with fclavry. Chase's negro equality speech
in Ohio, when thpy presented him with a
silver pitcher. Again, take the "Helper
Hook," which says "no man can bo a true
patriot until he becomes an abolitouist,"
Viith a thousand other saying contrary to
the genius of our iurtitulious. iow, Mr.
Hcpublioan, wo will leave Mr. Jcfi'erion
off. Who endorsed and thus recommended
this infamous sectional Hook. 03 of your
leading Representatives in Congress. It
was sold along with Lincoln's Debates and
was considered orthodox Republicanism.
Again, look at the Foreign appointments.
Who is C. M.Clay. Who rendered himself
so famous recently at Paris ! Hurlingame,
who was oven too much of an abolitionist
for Ronton lo scud to Congress, and who
wanted an anti-slavery God, Rible, and
Constitution, is just tha material for a
Foreign Ambassador during tho present
reign of terror. Wo might speak of
Carl Shurlz, and others, but this will
luflico to show any reasonable man that a
party governed by this kind of mateiial,
must iu tho very nature of things, bo sec
tional, and com ' within the category spo
ken of by tho Father of bis Country, as
inimical to tho peretuatiou of our liberties.
Will tho gentleman bo kind enough to
tell us tho prominent statesmen that par
ticipated iu tho Philadelphia Couveutiou
from Kentucky and Maryland. Mr. Re
publican sets himself up against tho Dred
Scott decision. It is refreshing that iu
these days of cuarehy and lawlessness to
know that we have a man iu our midst
superior to the Supremo Court,tho decision
of thb august body, who are, (or were)
the legal expounders of tho Constitution
may in all future time beiguored,seeing thoy
have been set aside by such profound abil
ity. How quick theso small fish fall
iu tho wake of their leaders as soon as
"Grow (their present speaker) speaks of
tho Judges as a set of old granules." Wo
hear a perfect howl from all tho small fry,
in regard to the ''Missoui Comuromise."
Who introduced the bill for its repeal?
Mr. Douglas a Norilum man. It was
repealed by votes North and South. Was
that sectionul I If this were sufficient ox
cuso for tho formation of your sectional
party, why in the name of common hones
ty did not tho leaders of your patty go in
for tho "Crit'cmlcn Omipiomhe," and
have it engrafted in tho Constitution, and
thus havo takon tho subject out of Con
gress ? The reason I suppose is his party
based upon tho idea of aboliUu.i in all
tho common domaiu, equality of the North
and South Jin tho territories would have
been tho death knell to tho Chicago l'ht-

His referenco to Southern statesmen
amounts to nothing, Look nttlwir whole
lives. How sensitive they wero when the
North interfered nith their domestic insti
tutions. J hero is no doubt had it not been
for the Abolitiou societies, underground
railroad, and negro concealers, somo of tho
Hordcr States, ere this, would havo freed
their slaves. Hut the idea of ono section
dictating to tho other what thoy may do,
and what thoy may not do ; what kind of
property thoy shall tako into tho Territor
ies, is what has contributed a full share to
our troubles. Theso aro tho men that
corao in for their portion of the infamy tho

with radicals, North or South, but still

1 BACK TOWNSHIPS
SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 17. 1861
We commend tho following to thoso Re
publicans who, just now, think it an awful
, thing for a man to speak out his sentiments
unless thoy happen to chitno in with the
I entire policy of ''Old Abe." Tho extract
, is from tho messago of Gov. Andrew of
M.-.Machusctts, to tho Legislature a fow
weeks sinco :
"Let us never under any conceivable
1 circumstances of provocation or indigna
j lion forgut tho right of frco discussion of
all publio question: is guaranteed to every
individual on tho Massachusetts soil, by
tho settled couictiou of her people, by,thc
habits of her successive generations, and
by express provisions of her constitution.
J And let us therefore never seek to repress
the criticims of minority, however small,
' upon tho character and conduct of any
uJininhiiation whether STATE or NA-
Tlio Right Talk.
The Bcston Journal, a republican pa
per, duly appreciates tho position of the
Democracy at this time, and does justice
to their motives. It says :
Wo aro proud to acknowledge tho pa
triotio iutrepudity of our Democratic breth
ren iu this crisis, and we shall consciously
do nothing to diminish o discourage it.
We know well their position. They arc
for tho country, for tho Union, and there
fore for tho Government and in all prac
tical duties they are ith u3 and of us.
Hut when time renews the opportunity for
indulgence of paity conflicts, thoy will
still bo Democrats : and if on tli-ih nv,.n.,
they should tako up tho broken link of
controversy, it would bo all right. We
should expect Republicans to bo held to
stikt aeeouutubility tor their u?a of power
in tho meanwhile, and should join issuo
thereon. Rut not now tho waiver is
! complete on all side?. One all prevailing
i spirit mauea r.3 a unit iu tlio Ucteneo ot
, the Governmoi.t and tho discomfiture of
i iti assailants. Tho latter behold now
. what perhaps thoy did not anticipate.

la tllOUL'ht of liartv. :lld with tlin nnlw
thought of their country."
Tho Corvin Anionclmont.
At tho last session of Congress, Mr.
Corwin, of Ohio, proposed tho following
amendment to the Constitution :
Art. 13. No amendment shall bo
made to the Constitution which will au
thorize, or give to Coii"rcs3 the power to
uuuiiau ur iu juiiTiure wituiu any otate
with the domestic institutions, thereof, in
cluding that of persons held to labor or
service by tlio laws of said Stato.
This was adopted hy both Houses, and
ordered to be submitted to tho several
State Legislatures for their approval.
Mr. Lincoln, in his inaugural address, ex'
pressed his approval of it and advised its
ratification. It has been ratified by only
one legislature in which the Republicans
havo a majority, viz : Ohio. It was adop
ted in Rhode Island, but thero Republican
ism is in the minority. Hut in New York,
Pennsylvania, Maine, Massachusetts, Con
necticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, and
other States whoso legislatures have been
in session, it has failed. The Republicans
! are uuvilling to say that they not use
their accidental power in Congress to abol

SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 186L
Among tho Washington dispatches to
tho New York Tribune of tho 17th, wo
find tho following :
"Senator Pomcroy's bill for the sup
pression of the slaveholders' rebellion, on
nets that Slavery bo immediately abolished
by proclamation, and tho army officers di
rected to protect, and authorized to use,
tho emancipated Blaves."
Wo aro proud lhat Kansas has taken
tho initiative in a measure which is sure
ultimately to triumph as it is certain that
the day will conic when tho sun will not
rise upon a master nor set upon a slave.
Senator Pomcroy's bill strikes at the
foundation of all our national difficulties,
and he is the only man in Congress who
has had the courngo to meet tho question
openly and fairly.
While tho people are laughing at this
bill and cencuring its author, the irre3i.sti
bio logic of events will sweep down jeers
and sneers and proclaim Freedom Nation
al. It will be enacted by tho Army and
tho People beforo it has passed to its third
reading iu the Senate. Leave niaoith Con
servative. It is daily becoming moro and more
palpable that the above expresses tho real
object of this war so far a3 it is pushed on
hy tho Republican party. Their cvory
act and declaration proves it, and we may
therefore understand why every effort on
the part of tho Democrats to stop this ond
less effusion of blood and untold millions
of expenditure, is mot by shouts of con
tempt and derision, There is no longer
any disguise in this matter, as a Hill passed
Congress on Saturday very similar to that'
spoken of above, introduced by Pomcroy,
the big medicant Senator from Kausas. I
Choose ye therefore tho pait you will ,
boar in this new phase the war is to tako.
When such orders issue, from W ashiugtou
Con. McClellau will bo superceded by
Gen. Hanks, tho "Union slider," and va
rious other strange scenes will bo exhibi
ted iu the Army. Hvcry step pursued
seems to bo two steps back, as to any
prospects of an ond to our eiil war.
It is an astonishing historical fact (which
we recently heard an eloquent minister im
pressively dwell upon) that in almost every
great battle fought on the Lord's Day, the
attacking parly hai been liifculed! That
of ManassasH, on Sunday lat, adds anoth
er deplorable instanco to this li.'t of won
derful and seemingly Providential facts.
When Count Lomanoski, who had
served with Napoleon iu all his wars, lact-1
tired in this placo, soveral yoar3 ago, wo
remember him stating in his lecturo that
Sunday Rattles always remlted to the dis
comfiture of tho attacking party. He in
stanced, wo think, somo twenty-six promi-1
nent battles, fought on suuday, in which
tho attacking party wero defeated. If
thoro is a timo in the history of a nation, j
more than all other times, when its rulers ,
should "fear God and keep his Com-!
mandments," it is during tho prcvalcneo
of civil war tho most cruel, horrible and ;
sinful of all wars. Tho desecration of tho
Lord's Day, by our Army, we must not
flatter ourselves will go unavenged, for an
authority that wo dare not disputo hath'
said, "the Lord hath sworn by his right
hand, and by tho arm of his strength, that
tho nation and the kingdom that will not.
servo him shall pciUh, and be wasted with

Sin : Tho following question has late
ly been asked in the hearing of tho writer,
by men who aro Republicans, and daily
readers of your paper :
"If tho President has abided by tho
Constitution, why it is necessary to legal
ize his action ?" And I confess tho query
has been raised in my own mind, if Mr.
Lincoln has acted legally, how can his ao
tion3 bo legalized ? Of what use is Sena
tor Wilson's bill to "ratify and confirm"
thoso actions? For the benefit of all
doubting ones, you will please answer this
question, and show us that your Presi
dent has not "porjurcp himself," as somo

It is not remarkable that even Republi
cans should begin to ask questions. The
Times very naturally suggosts a good many
grave questions, and thoy must be satis
factorily answo.cd. Mr. Greeley very
coolly and rather curtly replies :
"Ansicrr Wo did not suppose any ono
doubted that, in calling out and arming
Three Hundred Thousand militia, and
ordering an increase of tho regular Army,
tho President, anticipating tho nsscnt of
Congress, has dono what has no legal va
lidity if such absent bo withhold."
If tho President "anticipated" Congres
sional action why did he not call Congress
together at au earlier day ? Ha violated
the Constitution and his oath, and kept
Congress away long enough to mako an
excuso for tho necessity. On the sumo
parity of reasoning ho could dispense with
Cougrcss altogether, assumo Dictatoral
Robes, and oooly answer us that tho ne
cessities of the country require it. And is
not thai emergency being prepared for us

Oregon, in defending the Prcsidont, ex

CfiyThcro has been stirring times in
Harrisburg for somo weeks, and much
complaint of the modo in which the pay
ing of the three months men has been con
ducted. Many of the soldiers starving
and naked wero kept waiting for days by
reason of the dilatanness of tho Paymas
ter. They aro yet getting along slowly.
The sum required, to pay a regiment,
officers included, for theco months' service
is not far short of ? 10,000. Tho sum to
bo received by tho officers of a regiment
for three months' services, is as follows;
Colonel, 05 1; Lieutenant Colonel, S5S2 ;
Major, Captain, 8395 ; First Lieu-
tenant, 832.1; Scceoud Lieutenant, 310;
Surgson, 82." ; Adjutant, 837!) ; Quar
termaster, ? 103.
This commutes every thinif into money,
including tho cost of servants, horses and
rations. Commissioned officers cannot al
ways understand this, and aro invariably
surpiisod as finding themselves tho recipi
ents of so much moro money than they ex
pected. Non commissioned officers and
privates aro furnished with food and clo
thing. Non commissioned officers of the
staff aro paid 31 por month, their food
and clothc3. Tho Orderly of each company
receives S20 per month, clothing and pro
visions. Tho other Sergeants receive 817
per month, Corporals S13, Musicians 812
and Privates SH. Each man receives
his own money, after having signed dupli
cate receipts. The companies aro muster
ed in their order, and called to tho stand

The Income Tax Hill. Tho new
Income tax bill, latoly passed hy Congress,
seems to bo imperfectly understood. Many
people aro under tho impression that per
sons whoso income is over 300 aro not to
be taxed at all, while thoso over 300 aro
to bo taxed the full amount. This U .
mistake. It is only the surplus over 300
that is to bo taxed 3 per cent, In addi
tion to tho deduction of 300 from tho in
come, all the Stato, County, School and
Borough or township taxes aro also to bo
taken off and then the 3 per cent is put on
tho balance. So that a man whoso in
come ii S1000 a year, will havo to pay 3
per cent on 700, less tho amount of hia
local taxes. This bill goes into effect Jan
uary 1, 1602.
