The idinfnistration and the
It is becoming more arid -.more evident
every day that the present Administration
'is not competent to "conduct this war. So
far, with the exception of McClblian's bril
liant successes, it has been a series of blen
ders and 'mishaps. Gen. Scott has been
trammelled arid thwarted in all1 his plans
by the Administration until forced to ac
kno'wledg'e In a Cabinet meeting, "a' few
days since, that he was a "coward and fle
servedt'to be dismissed from the service,"
for being influenced, or controlled, in any
way by them in the management of the
war. The country will never place the
blame on Gen. ScOtt for the errors that have
been committed and the disasters thatliave
grown out of them. The Republicans are
not so 'stupid as not to see where the blame
belongs, and they are even more fearless in
expressing their disapprobation than the
Democrats. The New York Tribune, since
the ree'ent disaster, says "decimated and in
dignant people,' will demand the immedi
ate retirement of. the present Cabinet from
the high places of power, which for one
reason or another, they have bhown them
selves incompetent to fill." This is the
true sentiment of the people and Greelev
deserves their thanks for having fearlessly
ex'press'ed them. The people of the North
are heartily sick of the way in which this
war has been so far conducted. They, with
one accord wish to see this rebellion cut
down and the. Union restored, and are ready
to contribute any amonnt of money or men
for that end, but they will not stand seeing
the men cheated rind Wily IreateJ, and the
country disgraced by blundering battles.
The following article which we copy from
a ftppublicon paper speaks out boldly in
reference to these matters, and w'e trust the
Democratic press, all over the 'country, 'wSlI
have courage enough to follow the example :
'Somebody has a fearful account to ren
der for the repulse Of the Federal army at
Manassas Junction. Who's ' to blame?
Gen. Tyler commenced the fight, without
orders,' and during the absence of Gen. Mc
Dowell, the 'commanding officer, at Sang
ster's Point, 17 miles from Alexandria; but
he continued it gallantly lor "9 hours, ur.
masking battery after battery, up to Manas
sas junction: bDt it was in his division also
that the panic broke out and the stampede
began. At arr ipaTly 'stan'e of the action, it
became evident that the force of the rebels
was mnch snperior in number, ay three
to one to, the Federal troops. Nothing
short 'of success could justify such a despe
rate assault.
Gen: Patterson permitted Johnson to pass
with his entire force from Strasburg to the
juction, without. attempting to cut him off.
Why did hetrnt)fT and loiter at Charles
lOwn, instead bf pressing on the retreating
Who is responsible for placing thirty-five
thousand troops in battle array againt a
hundred thousand elaborately entrenched,
defended by innumerable masked batteries
rifle pits, fcc, and perfectly acquainted with
the topography of the country, thro' which
the attacking lorte required guides? Thfcfe
are periinent qudrtiotis.
It is true, the aft ailing army fought brave
ly against these tremendous .odds uutil a
strange and fatal pauic seized them, when
utterly demoralized, they fled in confusion,
but why were they left unsupported? .
We have to acknowledge a most dama
ging result, and a "set-back" of perhaps
several months. The enemy is comforted
and encouraged to the same extent. We
know of course, that there blunders will be
retrieved, and that their retrieval i only a
question of time. We know that Manas
sas Junction wilf be eventually captured
and that il thirty thousand men fail, sixty
thousand will be sent there; and thet-e du
plicated in turn, if necessary, until the po
sition is reduced: But the people want the
Insurrection suppressed as speedily as pos
sible and without reverse to the Federal
arms, and they hold it to be true economy
to send enough men and means, with com
petent officers, in the first instance, to make
sure of success. They care less for brilliant
feats of arms than the subjugation . of the
Rebels. .The affairs at Bethel and Vienna,
and the repulse at Manassas are foul blots
on the escutcheon of tbe Republic."
Greeley's Panic. ;
tt is well , known to the cdontry that
Gueklrt has been clamoring for a War
with the South all bis lifettme, and since
be has obtained his desires be is tbe hap
pietl man in creation and is urging on the
War with an impatience that has caused
even Gen. Scott to succomb. Grbclet has
been pushing on the War in Ordr to smash
up things generally. He expressly stated
in the Tribunl, a short time ago, that he
wanted to see "a panic a real back-down
panic." The animal turned op the other
day near Manassas Junction. It Is one of
Grbelet'b own making and we trust that
for once he is gratified to the full extent of
bis wishes ! He can how gloat over his
"panic" and keep up the clamor through
the. Triiune lor forther ruin and disgrace to
come : upon our- unhappy . country. The
Republicans themselves now say that if we
want a successful war we must; first '-'hang

Democraty not Dead.
Phovieknck, July 27, 1851.
Mr. H annum : Business and curiosity
'called me to Newton Centre a week ago
to-day, where 1 had the pleasure of attend
ing one of those good old-fashioned gather
ings of the honest democracy, that "re
minded me of the good old day's of "General
Jackson". There were the same old advance
guards whoserved an apprenticeship under
Old Uicliory, and there the eons of those
noble sires hundreds upon hundreds, and la
dies, too, in large number's. Then there
was that tame old fife and drum, playing
the same old Yankee Doodle. Here comes
the liberty pole, 120 feet in length, yes, and
It is fiickory. Then an old man with hair
as white as snow, who has been the cap
tain of many such gatherings, gives the
word "Ike'O heavt t'i and up it goes. I was
just then Inquireing about the flag, when
the old man shouted, "Make room for the
ladies?" HallOo ! here thev come with a
beautiful flag of their own manufacture.
Three cheers for the ladles and three for
the flag, arid up it goes. Bang ! that is the
old cannon machine out by the barn
Thunder and lightning how it roars,throws
stones, old iro'n and dirt. That ist, none of
your murderous rifled cannon, to kill every
body with, but it is just the thing for such
an occasion, a noisy, harmless machine,
making noise enough for fun and glory
without producing those terrific sehsatidns
which are more or less likely to b6 caused
by the discharges 6f modern ordinance.
the meeting was duly organized and ad
dressed by D. S. Koon, Esq., of Pittston,
Dr. Hakes and Hon. E. B. Chase, of Wikes
barre. Of the audience I most say, I have
never at any time or place, or under any
circnmMances, observed such good order or
such matked and earnest attention. 1 do
not hesitate to say that the impression made
upon me was, that those there assembled
seemed to listen and deliberate with a sol
emn serious 'camestnes, to and upon our
political present and fcture, sn'ch as I do
not remember to have seen before. If'Ay
not ? You may talk to those men of peace
or wur, of treason or abolition, of taxes or
tariffs, but let me say to yon that those
sterling men have made tip their minds ih?.t
there is certainly something out of order in
the engineers' department of our national
.matters. You may threaten them wi'h
mobs, you may gag free speech and snuff
treason in the just and honest criticism of
our public servants, but rnark what I tell
you, a tide of suspicion has set in and the
determination for one more change is thor
oughly agreed uon, and nothing less than
the interposition of Almighty power can
stop the one or prevent the other. With a

Arkwright worked for seventeen hours a
day, and began to learn the English gram
mar at fifty. His time was so valuable that
he always traveled with four horses. Watt
was thirty years upon his condensing en

locomotive. Walter Scott, as a copying
clerk, managed to copy one hundred and
twenty pages of manuscript in twenty-four
hours. When a clerk in the court of ses

lighted his own fire, and did his literary
work before breakfast. John Briton worked
sixteen hours a day. touden sat up two

studied sixteen hours a day. Hunter al
lowed himself but five hour's sleep in the
twenty-four. Jenner was' twenty years in
perfecting vaccination Herschell, while in
the band of the pump-room, finished two
hundred specula before he made one that
would suit his telescope. " Titian worked
daily, for seven years, at "The Last sopper."
Meyerbeer studied music for fifteen hours a
day. Giardini said it would take twelve
hours a day ior twenty ygars to learn to
play the violin, and Tagliont could only ar
rive at the perfection In dancing, by con
stantly practicing until she fainted. Foley,
the fbunder bf the present noble family of
that name, worked his passage twice to
Sweden and back, and supported himself
there for several years as a fiddler, in order
to learn the secret bf splitting Iron. Eldon

American War in which :t foieshadbws re

experience now makes tt evulent that t

we have oiiicers who thorocghly under

A GREAT MAN. .: . .
The author of the 'NazareneT thus speaks
of President Jackson ! "He was a man !
Well, I remember the day I waited upon
him ! He sat there in his arm chair I can
see Kim 'ho v. We told him of the public
distress the manufacturers ruined the
eagles shrouded in crape, that were catried
at the head of 20,000 men into indepen
dence sqnare. He heard us all. We beg
ged him to leave the deposits where they
were, to uphold the great bank of Philadel
phia. Still he did not say a word. At last
one of our members, more fiery than the
rest, intimated that if the bank was crushed
a rebellion might follow. Thea the old
mar. arose 1 can see him y?.'i.
"Come,", he shouted, in a voice of thun

that man standing there at Washington,
battling against all 'the powers of bank and

he trusted assailed by all that the snake
of malice could hiss or the fTsrii of false

We would suggest to these gentlemen
who are so afraid that human core will not
be poured but to stain the land, a way by
wh ich the y can give more force to their
counsels, and entitle themselves to be
heard by the people. Let them exchange
the pen for the rifle, and join themselves
to the army, and meet on the tented field
the men for whose blood they thirst, and then
the people will believe that they have a
right to say whether the thing shail be set
tled without a fisht or not, Otherwise it will
be thought that they are bnly valiant when
other men fight their battles, and they are
themselves at a Convenient distance from
