Wo have perused with interest and sat

Hakk3, ono of tho Representatives, at
Ilarrisburg, February 18, 1804, on tho
llesolution proposing to require proof of
loyalty from tho persons claiming pay

taiucd injury by tho Rebel Raids into our

csposo of tho snoaking attempt of tho abo

test of loyalty for 'tho disunionists, by
which democrats may bo deprived of their
just rights, and tho others rewarded for
harboring the Rebels. This is ibo mean

Democratic State Convention.
Wo hear from every quarter that the
State Convention, which is to bo held iu
Philadelphia on the 2-lth of March, will
not only be full inside, but that there will
bo a larger and outside representation than
usual, It will have grave work to perform
and, we trust its deliberations will becalm
and its action prudent. In regard to del
egates at largo to tho National Convention
which is to assemble at Chicago on the 4th
of July, wo trust wo may intimato with
oat impropriety, that wise and reliable
Democrats only should be selected. We '
are confident the convention will fool tho
necessity for such representatives, aud,
therefore, need prets tho matter uo fur

ulrcady mentioned for that responsible
position, wo notiee Geo. W. Cass, of Alle

Woodward of Philadelphia Thero will
doubtless bo others equally worthy, pres

tion will probably find littlo difficulty in
choosing delegates who will fully satisfy
public expectation.

houses and enjoying ourselves first rate.
The weather has been dry and warm all

The Lancaster Intelligencer, says this
notorious English Abolitionist, who for
thirty lotg years has boon laboring to
destroy tho American Union, is again in
this country having been sent for by
some of tho "loyal" friends of tho Ad
ministration. Ho oommenced his destruc
tive work in Boston, on tho eVening of
the 10th ult., having been introduced to
tho meeting by tho ''loyal" Collector of
tho Port, Mr. Goodrich.
Thompson began his disunion harangue
by thanking God that he had lived to see
tho fruits of his labors tho bloody triumph
of Abolitionism in the noblo position that
America had taken, and hoped in a few
days to havo tho opportunity to speak
more fully on tho stato of feeling in Eng
land in relation to our groat struggle In
conclusion, ho alluded to George Wash

founder of American Liberty ! ! What

of tho forces in Florida, had been badly

loss is reported at from 1,200 to 1,000.
The troops engaged were principally from
wew England and iow oik. uno or
two colored regiments were engaged. Tho
rebel army is roported 15,000 strong. We
do not credit this, nor do we believe that
cither Hardee or Beauregard was in com
mand, as reported. Tha defeat was un
doubtedly the result of ovcr-coiifidenco
and bad gcnoralship. Tho expedition was
