A fc 8 1 i i I o a the Cause.
We have asserted that Abolitionism, and
not Slater, is the real cause of all oar
national troubles. In making this assertion
we are borne out, and oor statement vin
dicated, by events which are- even - now
transpiring iu our midst. But we are al
ways met, by the Abolitionists, with the
trgumenl that Abolitionism would never
hae existed but for the existence of Sla
very hence the latter is the cause. This
is art argument about a forcible as that of
the boy, who was the hero of this anecdote:
He returned to his doting Mama with an
exceedingly dirty face, whereupon said
maternal sire, proposed, to administer a
dose of soap and water, but was met with
tbe following argument, from the young
hopeful, "I don't see the use of washing
my lace ; it will get dirty right off !"
Flavery was indeed an institution in this
Co untry long before it became a National
Unity ; while it was fclill but a community
oi dependent Colonies, subject to tbe British
Crown. . It had been thrust upon us by a
mercenary nation, or rather, several nations.
At first its introduction was stoutly opposed
by the Colonies ; but what could their fee
ble opposition accomplish when even the
home government was using all its power
to fasten the institution upon ourContinent?
It came Lere by force ; it took root in all the
Co'on'e., and continued to grow with them.
And hivory records the fact that twelve of
the thirie.en original pirties to our national
CrtmpactjNrere Slave holding Stales. Thsse
pa rile mads "X Constitution in which the
existence o.r ti e instimion is not only fully
recognized, but clanses were inserted pro
viding expressly for i s protection. This
one fact would reuder Abolitionism nothing
lets than opposition to the Constitution.
And the form which that opposition has
taken wouM sump the parlies indulging in
it a traitor, in a less tolerant commu
nity. But in this country, as long as it re
mained under the influence of a conserva
tive party, free speech was tolerated to the
greatest extent, even to open denunciations
of the Constitution and the government
We have ourselves seen ' Republican ora
tor , within. the past six years, stand upon
the'potlic rostrum and .tear copies of the
Constitution ir to shreds and cast the frag
men is iu the dust at their feet.
' One of the results of this unlicensed trea
son has been an attempt of the. Abolition
party, proper, to'.bring abt an abolition
ofMavery by force of arms. This has been
their cry for years. It has resounded from
the press, the pulpit, and the stump.
Meu have been taaghtjto look upon a slave
holder b. an outlaw. Little children have
been taogbl to regard ail men who are dis
posed to recognize the constitutionality of
Slavery as fit subjects for their contempt
In fact Abolitionism has at altera pied to in
still into the population of the North a
deersealeJ hatred of Slavery and Slave
holders. Here we have a fruitful source of
much of onr trouble. This spirit of antipa
thy to the Sooth has gradually undermined
that sentimentjof national unity of purpose,
and unity of interest, which are tbe essen
tial requisites to a happy and prosperous
nnity ol political bodies Tbe South has
been taught to believe that the North pro
poses, either now, or in the near future, a
crusade upon Slavery. And this conviction
is daily strenghlened by the ranting of
Sumner,- the silvery incendiaryiem of Phil
lips, and tbe folly of Greeley.
It is tun universal conviction in the
South that precipitated rebellion, and it is
the Abolition ranting of tbe Northern fire
eaters in and out of Congress, that strength
ens this conviction and induces Southern
men to stake their alt upon the issue of this
contest, because they feel convinced that
failure on their part would be ruin. When
yon remove this conviction yon have virtu
ally disarmed the South. And you can
never remove it until you have removed
its cause, by the crushing out of tbe Aboli
tion party of the North. The President has
ptaced himself and his adminsitrdiion in a
hostile attitude to this party. It only re
mains for the people to come to the rescue,
strengthen the hands of the government by
giving Abolitionism its qnietus, and we
may hope to look once more upon a united,
happy asd prosperoas people, bound to
gether by tne indisoIuble ties of a common
interest- Carbon Democrat.
Jost sj we Said.
"Speaking for onrselves, we can honestly
say that for that old Union which was kept
in existence by Southern' menaces and
Northern coricessfonists, we have no re
grets and no wish for its construction. Who
wants any Union which can only be pre
served by systematic wrong and organiz
ed political blunders ? Who wants any
Union which it nothing but a sentiment to
lacker ol July Orations withal ? iV.
Y Tribune. .
The above from the Tribune just proves
what we always said, that the Abolitionists
eared not a cor lor the Union unless slav
ery be abolished. Unless this is done they
a thousand times preler disunion. The
whole wax is nothing bat an accursed
Abolition crusade w far as the Abolition
ist are concerned. This we have alway
misntained, and history will so record it.

Abraham Lincoln.
We observe a disposition on the part of
'some Democratic papers to treat Mr. Lin
coln with extreme benevolence, because of
some recent good acts which have brought
down upon him the bitterest opposition of
at least a portion of the ultra Republican.
We submit that enmity to others is never a
good reason for supporting those they hap
pen to bate. But what has Lincoln done
that deserves Democratic sympathy, except
the single fact that he has not entirely inter
posed obstacles to raising an army to quail
rebellion 1 Have our friends forgolter. his
nonsensical speeches before his inaugura
tion! Have they forgotten the aid and com
fort he gave the rebellion caue by appoint
ing Abolitionists to his Cabinet, and the
wrongs he perpetrated upon the Union men
of the South by appointing to important of
fices such men as the infamous Helper, the
veteran scoundrel Giddings, and scores of
others who have spent their lives in striving
to produce this rebellion? Do our -friends
not know thstthe exposure of the monstrous
corruptions by tbe Van Wyck committee had
no effect upon Lincoln ?
. It is true that Democratic Generals (gen
erally) are in command of our armies, but
these were either appointed under a stress
of circumstances that Lincoln could not
withstand, or they obtained their prominent
positions by the necessary removal of the
corrupt or incompetent Republicans who had
been placed above them.
It is equally true that he invited Secretary
Cameron to resign, but in doing so not only
complimented him with the important mis
sion to Russia, .bnt as if determined to stow
that his deposed Secretary had done nothing
to which he objected, wrote him a note as
6uring him of the President's "personal re
gard for you, Cameron and ihe Presi
dent confidence in his (Cameron's) abili
ty. patriotism and fidelity to the public trust "
If it be true, therefore, that the President
desired to rid himself of Cameron because
ofeither the tatters want of capacity, or
integrity, or efficiency, or for any other on
com plimentory reason, does he not by the
above quotation either prove himself a con
summate hypocrite or an equally consum
mate knave ? We have no desire to excul
pate Cameron, but we insist that the Presi
dent who so fully endorses him is at lea?t
no belter than he.
Lincoln condemns Dawes for his speech
exposing the army corruptions, and for
pointing out how our soldiers were swin
dled and rendered inefficient, atid continues
in office the superb robber, Secretary
Welles, who gave his brother in-law S75,
000 to S95,000 for a few days work in pur
chasing ships that were not worth over half
what the government was charged for them.
And all this while our soldiers were not on
ly imploring the civil officials for their pet
ty pay, but also for the necessary means to
proceed against the public enemy. Are
these the things that give the President (he
sobriquet of "honest old Abe," and do these
things command Democratic sympathy 1
He has shown his incompetency by the
selection of inferior, incompetent and dis
pones', men for office from Cabinet minister
down- and his want of fidelity to tbe Con
stitution, as well as want of ability, by the
arbitrary establishment of measures hostile
to the Constitution, to the laws of the land
and to all principles of civil liberty meas
ures not only arbitrary, but unjust, tyranni
cal and ioolish, working ouly harm and no
He. may be commended for creating a va
cancy in his Cabinet so as to bring in a
Democrat of tried ability and integrity, but
this he did in the hour of his peril, from ne
cessity, and for the substantial reason that
he couldn't help it. No fact could more
strongly prove Lincoln's weakness, than
that upon the accession of this man to his
cabinet, pretty much the whole list of hum
bog and all tbe unconstitutional and tyran
nical measures he had previously adopted
were at once discarded, and victory upon
victory accompanied the march of our noble
While the country rejoices over the
splendid achievements of our brave soldiers
but is yet in tears for the dead brave whose
lives were lost in obtaining them while
thousands are on the verge of want and bur
densome, frightful taxation stares every loy
al man in the face "honest old Abe"
mocks at the National griefs, calamities,
and dangers, by introducing into the Presi
dential mansion (the House of tbe people)
the wildest, most fanciful, and most extrav
agant scenes of gayety, carousal and dissi
pation the first instance of the sort in the
history of American Presidents! Does this
commend him to Democratic sympathy?
The Republicans in hostility to the Presi
dent are averse to him only because he
will not assent to making war upon one
portion of the Constitution which he is un
der a most solemn oalh to defend and pro
tect and such assent he does not dare to
give. Why shall the Democracy then bet
called upon to support him for this ?
Every Democrat will do bis best to put
an end to the rebellion and restore the
Union as it was. But this does not involve
either the necessity or propriety of giving
personal support to the President. "Mr.
Lincoln is not the United States Government.
Tbe Government is ours, and we owe alle
giance to it, Mr. Lincoln is not ours, and
we do not owe allegiance to bim. Mr. Lin
coln's term of office is short &nd fleeting ;
the Government we hope will last forever "

There are a few gall-blooded " Republi
cans," alias Abolitionists, ic this glace who
hate Gen. McCIellan with a hatred perfect
ly malignant, simply because he is a Dem
ocrat and because there is fair prospect that
be may be in the way of their candidate in
the next race for the Presidency. These

Kessajc of Jeff. Davis.
Baltimore, Feb. 28. The following if
the message of Jeff Davis, delivered to the
rebel Congres.
To the Senate and House of Representatives qr
me t,onjeaeraie males :
la obedience to the provision of the Con
stituiion requiring the President from tim-i
to time to give to Congress information cl
the elate of the Confederacy, and recom
mend to their consideration such measures
as he shall judge necessary and expedien ,
I have to communicate that, since my mei
sage at the last session of the Provisional
Congress, events have demonstrated that
the Government had attempted more than it
had power successfully to achieve. '
Hence, in the effort to protect by our arms
the whole territory of the Confederate Stab is
seaboard and inland, we have been so ec
posed as recently to encounter serious dis
When the Confederacy was formed, the
States comprising it were, in the peculiar
character of their pursuits and a misplacid
confidence in their former associates, to a
great extent destitute of the means for tie
prosecution of a war on so gigantic a scale
as that which it has attained. The woik
shops and artisans were mainly to be found
in the Northern States, and one of the frst
daties which devolved upon this Govern
ment was to establish the necessary mat u
factories, and in the meantime to obtain, by
purchase from abroad, as far as practical le,
whatever was required for the public le
fence. No effort has been spared to effect bath
of these ends ; and though the results h .ve
not equalled oor hopes, it is bs!ieved that
an impartial judgement, will, upoa full in
vestigation, award to the various depart
ments of the Government credit for hain
done all which human power and fores ght
enabled them to accomplish. The vilor
and devotion of the people have not t nly
sustained the efforts of the Government, but
have gone far to support its deficiencies
The active state of military preparat ons
among the nations of Europe in April- tbe
date when our agents first went abroi.d
interposed unavoidable delays in the pro
curement of arms, and the want of a tiavy
has greatly impeded oor efforts to impor
tant military supplies of all-sorts.
I have hoped tor several days to receive
official reports in relation to our disco-n fit
ure at Roanoke Island and the fall of Fort
Donelson. They have not yet reached me,
and I am therefore unable to communicate
to you such information ol past events and
arid the consequences resulting from liem,
as would enable me to make recommi nda
tions founded upon the changed :con ition
which they have produced. Enough is
known of the surrender of Roanoke Island
to make us frel that it was deeply ht initi
ating, however imperfect may have been
the preparations for defence.
The hope is still entertained that oor re
ported losses at Fort Donelson have been
mnch exaggerated, inasmuch as I am nc t only
unwilling, but unable to believe that a large
army of our people have surrendered with
out a desperate attempt to cut their way
through the investingforces, whatever may
have been their numbers, and to endeavor
to make a junction with the other diusions
oflhoarmy. But In the absence of that
exact information which can be afforded by
official reports, it would be prema ure to
pass judgment, own is resened, as
I trust yours will be, until that information
is received.
In the meantime, strenuous efforts have
been made to throw forward reinforce menis
to the armies at the positions threatened,
and I cannot doubt that the bitter disap
pointments we have borne, by nerviig the
people to still greater exertions, will speed
ily secure results more accordai t with
our just expectations, and as fa-orable
to our cause as those which marked the
earlier periods of the war.
The reports of the Secretaries of War
and the Navy will exhibit ihe mass of re
sources for the conduct of the war which
we have been enabled to accumula e not
withstanding tbe very serious dificulties
against which we have contended They
afforded cheering hopes that our reiources,
limited as they were at the beginning of the
contest, will, during its progress,bec me de
veloped to such an extent as fully to meet
our future wants.
Tbe policy of enlistment for short terms
against which I have steadily contended
from the commencement of the wir, has,
in my judgment, contributed in no imma
terial degree to the recent reverses which
we have suffered, and even now r mders it
difficult to furniih you an accurate state
ment of the army.
When the war first broke out, many of
our people could with difficulty be persua
ded that it would be long or seiious. It
was not deemed poisible that anything so
insane as a persistant attempt to mbjugate
these States could be made still less, that
the delusion would so far prevail sj to give
to the war the vast proportions that it has
The people, incredolous of a lung war,
were naturally averse to long enlistments,
and the early legislation of Congress ren
dered it impracticable toobtain vole nteers for
a greater period than twelve morn is. Now
that it has become probable that the war
will be continued lhrouah a seriet of years,
our high-spirited and gabant soldi srs, while
generally re-enlistir g. are from tie fact of
their having entered tbe service fur a short
term, compelled in many instances to go
home to make the necessary arringements
for their families during their prol anged ab
sence. The qnota of the new regime its for the
war, called for from the different States, are
in rapid progress of organization. The
whole body of new levies and ' re-enlisted
men will probably be ready i.nd in the
ranks within the next thirty days. But, in
the meantime, it is exceedingly difficult to
give an accurate statement of tie number
of our forces in the field. Thiy may, in
general terms, be stated at 400 regiments
1 1 of infantry, wun a proportion e iorce oi
cavalry and artillery, detailed thich will
be shown by th repoft of the IJecretary of
'War. ..I;.,
I deem it proper to advert to the fact that
the process of furloughs and re-enlistments,
in progress for the last month, had so far
disorganized and weakened our forces as to
impair our ability for a successful defence ;
but I heartily congratulate you that this evil,
which I had foreseen, and was powerless
to prevent, may now be said to be substan
tially at an end, and that we shall not again
during the war, be exposed to seeing our
strength diminished by this fruitful cause of
disaster short enlistments.
The people of the Confederate States, be
ing principally engaged in agricultural pur
suits, were unprovided at the commence
ment of hostilities with ships, ship yards,
materials for Bhip building, or skilled me
chanics and seamen in sufficient numbers
to make the prompt creation of a navy, a
practical fask, evej.if the required appro
priations had been made for the purpose.
Notwithstanding our very limited resource,
however, the report of the Secretary will
exhibit to you a satisfactory proportion in
preparation, and certainly of near comple
tion, of vessels of a number and class on
which we may confidently rely for contest
ing the vaunted control of the enemy over
our waters.
The financial system devised by Ihe wis
dom of your predecessors has proved ade
quate to supplying all the wants of the Gov
ernment, notwithstanding the unexpected
and very large increase of expenditures re
sulting from the great augmentation in the
necessary means of defence. The report
of the Secretary of the Treasury will exhib
it the gratifying fact that we have no float
ing debt, that the credit of the Government
is unimpaired, and that tbe total expendi
ture of the Government for the year has
been, in round numbers, $170,000,000
less than one third of the sum wanted by the
enemy in his vain efforts to conquer us
and less than the value of a single article of
export the cotton crop of the year.
The report $1 the Postmaster General will
show the condition of that Department to
be steadily improving, its revenues increas
ing, and already affording assurance that it
will be self sustaining at the date required
by the Constitution, while affording ample
mail facilities for the people.
In the Department of Justice, which in
cludes the Paten; Office and Public Print
inc, some legislative provisions will be re
quired, which wilt be specificallj stated in
the report of the head of that Department.
I invite the attention of Congress to the
duty of organising a Supreme Court of the
Confederate States, in accordance with the
mandate of the Constitution. m
I refer you to my message communicated
to the Provisional Congress in November
last, for such further information as it might
be useful to lay before you, the short inter
val whieh has since elapsed not having
produced any material change in that con
dition, other than those to which reference
has already been made.
In conclusion, I cordially welcome the
Representatives, who, being recently cho
sen by the people, are fully imbued with
their views and feelings, and can so ably
advise me to the needful provisions for the
public service.
I assure you of my hearty co-operation in
all your efforts for the common welfare of
the country. JEFFERSON DAVIS.
Change What it has Done and would yet Do.
What an astonishing and encouraging
change in the aspect of national affairs has
been effected by the withdrawel of a cor
rupt, thieving abolition, slave-arming Black
Republican from the War Department, and
pulling therein a plain spoken, straightfor
ward Democrat, who as a citizen and an of
ficer in the performance of duty, recognizes
the Constitution as the highest law and the
only basis of our government.
No sooner bad Cameron left and Stanton
been inaugurated, than McCIellan felt that
he had a backer oa whom be could rely.and
President Lincoln discovered that he bad a
bold man and an honest adviser at hi3 coun
cil board. The effect is soon seen. The
President, the Secretary and the General
harmonize. McCIellan, thus sustained, re
gards not the insulting taunts and muttering
threats of Abolition Republican Congress
men and presses. Holding the Capitol se
cure beyond mishap, he directs movements
along the coast and in the West, against the
Confederate forces at important points, and
victory follows victory in rapid succession.
Now, if the President would withdraw
Welles from the Navy Department, as the
plundering therein demands, and put a man
of unquestionable integrity in his place,
there would in all probability, be a still fur
ther im provement. It would give assarance
to the tax-payers of the country that New
York Morganism was at an end, and that
government expenditures would no longer
be directed to the enriching of partizan fa
vorites and brothers in-law, at the expense
of the public treasury.
Another change could not fail to prove
highly advantageous to the Union cause.
Let Mr. Seward be withdrawn from the
Cabinet, and some sound, national, consti
tutional, conservative man take his place,
and it would do more towards bringing the
war to a speedy close, and restoring tbe
Union as it was, than an addition of a hun
dred thousand soldiers to the army.andsave
millions, perhaps hundred of millions to the
government. Tbe Union men of the South
never had, and have not now, any confi
dence in Seward. The whole people there
regard him as a sectionalism and an unscru
pulous enemy of the South and its constitu
tional rights. If he were put aside, and a
true man from Maryland, Virginia, or Ken
tucky substituted, it would go far, very far,
in opening the minds of Southern citizens
generally, for the reception and, perhaps,
favorable consideration of any jost appeal
which the President and the conservative
people of the loyal Slates would make to
the m .Jeffersonian.
Brave Boys. Mr. John Bees, the noted
match pedler of Snyder county, had no less

Friend Will; Variety being the spice of
life, we, ol ibis Brigade, have our full share
of it ; at least in respect to the weather.
We have all shades, kinds and varieties of
weather in twenty-four hours. Rain, snow,
sleet, hail, snnshine and I was going to
aaj no weather at all. We might almost
as well live in an oiJ boat with a brown
paste board for the atmosphere as to be
here where you can almost cut the air iu
There is nothing of importance soing on
here ; all is quiet along the upper Potomac
to-day, but not so yesterday, the 22d. This
was a gala-day, for the boys in Camp Chae.
The day was ushered in by our Artillery
firing thirteen rounds, which was followed
by all the Regimental Bands ten in num
ber striking op "Hail Columbia Happy
Land," followed by tbe "Star-Spangled
Banner," and other National and appropri
ate airs.
At 10 o'clock there was a grand review
of all the forces here, by Gen. Lander and
Staff. The scene was truly grand and im
posing, and an abler pen than mine must
do it justice. Gen. Lander addressed each
Regiment seperately. He said, in sub
stauce, to our Regiment :
"Soldiers of the 84ih, you are enlisted in
a glorious cauce it is just it is righteous
I want you to stand by me. and 1 will
lead you on." Then pointing to our Regi
mental colors he said, (and a glee of enthu
siasm seemed to light up his pal face as
he spoke ) "I see you have two stand of
colors, doubtless that one the old Stars
and Stripes were presented to you by the
ladies of your uative place " (A mistake
in the General they were the gilt of Penn
sylvania, through Governor Curtin.) Think
of that and never no never disgrace that

fair doners to blush for your unallaut or
unmanly defence of that flag. Your Gener

of noble daring to the ranks of Lieutenant ;
as in the case of a private in the 1st Virgin
ia Cavalry, at the affair at Bloomery Gap,
who followed bis General into the fight
when others shrank back. In twenty four
hours he received a telegraphic dispatch,
from Washington City, to the effect that he
was a Lieutenant of Cavalry. Although

most nobly. 1 shall watch you, and were

vociferous cheers of the boys. I have not
time nor space to describe the General at
this lime, but will attempt it in my next if
At 12 o'clock M., a national salute of
thirty-four guns was fired and everything
passed off in the most cheering manner.
There are considerable sickness in Camp at

The Victories of White Sen
The recent glorious victories of ourtroops,
says the Albany Argus, show that our white
citizens are adequate to all the necessities
of the existing contest. We have not had
to call into the field as allies, that portion
of the 4,000,000 of blacks iu the South ca
pable of carrying a "gun, or a knife, or ihe
incendiary torch, as, in momenta of trepi
dation and despair, cruel and cowardly men
clamorously urged us to do. The twenty
four million of the North did not need such
allies to aid them in a congest with eight
millions of the South. It would have been
as humilialir.g as disastrous, to have made
such a confession as the call tor such help
would have implied.
We shall have no more of this African
intervention in favor of the North, unless
possibly European intervention in favor of
the South should make our cause desperate.
It was only from the despair of the country
that a concent to such an extreme measure
could have been wrong.
The cry did not come from the true friends
of the Union from men who sought its
restoration. It was the decree of dema
cosues who were enemies of the Constitu
lion and the Union, and who preferred a
dissolution of the Union to its preservation
in connection with the 6lavehoIding States.
While we rejoice at the victories which
perpetuate us as a nation, let us not be un
mindful of their not less auspicious result,
the preservation of the Constitution and the
restoration of the Uuion and with all these
results, tbe vindication of our couiage, of
our humanity, and of our powers of self
government. 0 i a si

rily supplied. What makes the case more
heartless is the fact thai the builJing is
owned by a clergyman, and when he was
apprised of the distressing circumstances
of the affair he bad no reply to make, ex
cept that the woman must be put out if she
did not pay up. Exchange.
A Novel Race. The Honesdale Herald
gives an account of a race which took place
in that vicinity between a horse and a dog.
The ground was from Waymart to Seely
ville, a distance of eight mites. 'I he dog
drew a small cutter, with a len year old boy
as passenger. The race was well come. led
as far as Prompton, six miles. There the
horse, owing to a hill, got the advantage,
which the dog was not able to regain. The
time was 23 minutes for the horse and 31
for the dog. The conditions of the race
required the dog to be within forty rods of
the horBe on reaching th judges' ttand.
The dog lost by a few seconds. The dog's
weight was only 64 pounds. The affair
created great interest, and waa witnessed
by some two thousand people.
