The Segro Militxry Bill. -
The BUI from the Senate authorizing the
President to call out the militia for a period
not exceeding nine ruonths,and the employ
ment ot negroes in the Military per vice
pissed the House on Wednesday. The bill
aMhorizes the President to make all the
necessary regulation for the enrollment of
the militia ol the States, which enrollment
shall include all able-bodied men between
the ages of eighteen and forty-five, inclu
ding persons of African descent. The bill
farther provides 'hat all slaves, after its pa
sj.ga, who come within the line of the ar
my, are free forever. The second Fection
authorize? the President to call one hundred
thousand volunteers as Infantry for a term
not exceeding cine months, each volunteer
t3 receive a month's pay in advance and
tenty-5ve dollar bounty n 01 the muster
ing of his company or regiment into service.
The third section aotnorizes the President
to accept such a number of men as may be
required (or filling op ihe regiments of in
fantry now in the service for twelve months
unless sooner discharged, each volunteer to
receive fifty dollars bounty, one half of
which is to be paid at the expiration of the
erm of enlistment.
The President is authorized to receive in
to the service for the purpose of construct
ing intrenchments and performing camp
service or any other labor, or any military
or naval service for which they ma be
"found competent, persons of African de
scent; and such persons shall be enrolled
and organized under such regulations, not
inconsistent with the constitution and the
laws, aa the President may prescribe. The
twelfth seciion declares that whenever any
- roan or boy of African descent, who br the
laws of any State, shad owe service or la
: bor to any person who, during the present
rebellion, has levied war or borne arms
against the Government, or adhered to its
enemies, he, his wife and children shall
forever be free, any law or cns'.om to the
"contrary notwithstanding. And where such
persons owe service to loyal masters, provi-
eion is made for compensation.
' - Cost of Collecting the Taies.
The cost of collecting the taxes under the
new Tax bill, is estimated at nearly four
millions of dollars on SUO.COO.OOO. The
bill provides for'a whole army of office-holders
arid their salaries and fees will range
from 51,000, to 510.600 Each collector is
to receive, as compensation for his services
and those of his deputies, a certain commis
eion on the amount of money collected, the
total of which is limited to $10,000 per an
num for each collector. Each Assessor is
to receive 3 per day when making prepa
rations, issuing instructions, etc. ; and So
per day when engaged in the performance
of the regular duties of his office. They are
also to receive a commission of one dollar
for each hundred names. on the ta'x lists
which they furnish to collectors. Assistant
Assessors receive a salary of S3 p6r day,
and the same commissioners as Assessors

The Republicans say that the Democrat
ic party is responsible for the treason of
Breckinridge because he once belonged to
our organization. Well, let ns see how the
same line of argument will work on the
ether side. John Tyler, Alax. H.Stephens
Henry A. Wise, Judah P. Benjamin, and
cores of other rebel leaders, where all
atone lime Whig. Are the Republicans
who once belonged to the Whig party to be
held responsible for the conduct of these
traitors ? John Bell was nopported in 18F0
for President by the Native Americans, Fe
lix K. Zollicoffer, Humphrey Marshall, and
Sam. Houston, were all leading men of the
same party. Are those men, then in the
Republican ranks, who were once Native
Americans, to be called traitors, because
prominent members of their party are ?
Let 6ome of those who have so much to say
about "Breckinridge Democrats, answer."

Person Brownlow and the Bepnfcllcans.
As the Abolition-Republican papers just
now attach a great deal of importance to
every thing that Parson Brownlow says,
ao well as to all that he has heretofore
written and published, we present for their
especial gratification at this lime.the follow
ing delectable morsel which appeared in
the Knoxville Whig, edited and published
by this same Parson Brownlow, immedi-
ately after the nomination of Lincoln by
the Chicago Convention.
"The Black Republicans at Chicago, after
a stormy session, some fighting and much
adose of each other, have in the midst of
liquor and much hard swearing, nominated
Abe Lincoln the Illinois Abolitionist, who
was bupported by Buchanan's administra
tion eighteen months ago, for the Senate in
opposition to Douglas.
On the ticket with this administration pet
is Senator Hamlin of Maine, an Abolition
ist of the John Brown Helper school a
man who for mind, manners, morals, fea
tures, month, nose dark skin, wooly bead
could be sold for a negro."
Senator Cowan. One of the ablest ad
vocates of Constitutional liberty, in the U
S. Senate, is Hon. EL Cowan of this Slate.
Although differing with him in politics, we
cannor but admire his manly and patriotic
coor-e in opposition to the wild and. dan
geroos schemes of the abolitionists to over
throw the government and trample npnn the
Constitution. On Monday of last week, in
discussing the bill which provides provis
ional governments for certain districts, he
uttered ihe following patriotic .sentiment.
If there were a majority of such men in
Congress we might confidently hope that
this terrible rebellion and war would soon
be at an end. He 6aid :-Easton Sentinel
" The only way the Union cojld be re
stored was that every part.shouH enjoy its
rights. In any other we could not succeed.
He looked rpou the scheme to ihmi eman
cipation down the 'throats of the Sooth in
!he same light as the attempt ot the South
to thrnst slavery on the North He wanted
to make friends with the South, and not
make weapon against , us. The country
was not to be saved by initiating legislation
and schemes in favor of the negro, but by
war against the rebellion . and kindness to
loyal people He believed the system ot
legislation pursued here brnght us in the
condition we are now in and massed the
enemy against us Where is now the
great army ! And shall we so on fighting
as if we were the Abolition party fighting
against the pro-slavery party I"
Which is Right ? The object ol the Dem
ocratic party which does nut seek to con
ceal its identity by plausible names, and
scores to fight behind masked batteries is
to restore the Union as it ws, and ma tain
the Constitution as it is. There can be but
two patties at the next election the party
that stands on the broad platform of the
Constitution, and the Abolition part) . The
one will comprise all the Democrats and
conservative men in the country ; the o her
will be composed of Abolitionists and plon
der patriots, with a slight sprinkling ol ren
egade office-seeking Democrats. The Dem
ocratic party will seek 10 restore the Union
upon its ancient basis. The other party
will seek purposes as various as its compo
nent parts Abolitionism, however, must
necessarily be its life and soul, while it will
be the common refnge of the plunderers
who will seek its protection as a covering
for their transgressions. Who can doubt
which party most desires the welfare of the
country ? The Democratic party is a right
as the Constitution, and must triumph.
The Republican reminds its readers that
an Abolitionist is head and shoulders above
a Secessionist. Honest Joe Holt and An
drew Johuson both place the Abolitionist
o.-, the same pla'form with the Secessionist.
They are good Republican authori'y. The
lat er Union man proves them, in a very
clear and logical way, to be one a rd tie
same, and that both are working for the
same object a dissolution of this Union.
After these great statesmen having fixed
the Abolitionist and Secessionist together
we would hardly think the Republican mar
contained brass enough to style them alter
the manner and fashion he did. that an
"Asdit-onit was head and shot Ider- ab vp
a Secessionist." It is pretty generally un
derstood thai the Republic editor is an ab
olitionist of the Greely school, therefore we
do not wonder at his trying to place himself
above a Secessionist.

they tailed to endorse Mr. Cowan in any
particular, but spared i.o pains in landing
David Wilmot to the skies, for A' very
pa'riotic and manly course, in supporting
every measure that was found to have a
nigger in it, Mr. Cowan's course was truly
a loyal one, against which not one word of
condemnation can be ottered with any kind
of sincerity. That Convention did not meet
at Harrisburg to endorse men who are in
lavor of restoring the Union as it was and
maintaining the Constitution as it is. That
was not any part of the business of the
Convention. Nobody, but an Aboliiionist
could get an endorsement from that body.

COM SI UIW I C AT Co-
Tfce End Jostifica the Means. v
It may be deemed a divine truth and re
garded as a maxim, far and wide as civil
ized society, by some men, that evil she old
be done in order that good may come of it
Wnen 'he moral part of the. community in
I860 remonstrated against the means that
were resorted to by this Republican party
to overthrow the Democracy, the universal
answer was, that the end justified the means.
Now, sir, I will say something abont the
means that were used and the end effected
by them ; and I think 1 will be able to show
that the end was worthy of the means, and
the means worthy of the end, and that they
were both equally worthy of each othrr.
First then this Government bas ben in
existence over half a century, and for forty
years of its whole existence it has been
under Democratic rule ; although it has
been frost-bitten by Abolitionism, J t its
progress was still onward and upward.

anism, science and every improvement, the
proares of commerce, the refinements of
the Republics, of Carthage, Greece and
Rome, have employed a thousands pens,
and have been sung by ten thousand tongues

confounded, and yet the advancement of
the Republic of ihe United States, in every
characteristic jf civilization, human happi
nes and national greatness, has been more
in half a century than theirs in five hundred
years. Sir, the savage wilderness ha been
tamed, and the wild man has fled ; the

Well, let os snm up the evils ol the
change ! 1st. An increase ol taxation, the
increase of the Military expenses, with tbe
expemes of an Abolition w ir, numerous
and ex haosting a wars was ever on record
as a consequence.
2d. Tyranny and despotism in the Gov
ernment of the eastern Abolition despots.
3d. Ultimate ruin and subjection of the
nation to an Abolition party.
Dear sir, this was the career of the Israel
ites, ai d this the ruin,brought upon them
by that fatal word change; invented, intro
duced and rung by demagogues and cor
rupt politicians, who have been the over
throw and downfall of our beloved country.
Well, sir, I must return to the point at issue
the means in the election of I860
Falsehood was resorted to as a means) slan
der, detraction, perjury, bribery and treason,
were'called in, and the whole, united, con
stituted part of the means, by which the
Abolitionists and Republicans were too suc
cessful But in addition to falsehood and
all its vile and unworthy associates, there,
were other means used, equally degrading
to the American nation, all of which I shall
treat in their regular order. The first I shall
deal in wholesale and general will be
the Republican Abolition falsehoods, in de
nying the plundering of the treasury, rob
bing the honest soldier of his wages, &c.
Thebe disgraceful shown, senseless pa
rades, and protane demonstrations, were as
fatal to the good order of society and the
moral institutions of the country, as the
change they effected was fatal to its politi
cat and pecuniary interests. Dignity of
'character and morality of purpose, were
! alike sacrificed. All orders, all sexes, and
all profession of the entire Republican and
Abolition family, were contaminated with
the virus; however sacred, was polluted

ligion, the Judge's seat and sacred desk,

-wormy of the distempered brain ot the reck-
, its professional advocate. Sir, some ot them
were fonnd participating with and mingling
in the drunken carosals that would have
disgraced a bachanalian feast, in the most
degraded days of Greece. Such men are
made for the tables of money changers, not
for casting out devils. They might grace a
gambler's board, but they would pollnte a
temple. For the honor of the holy religion
of our fathers, and the sacred names of
Ministers and Apostles, I hope there ware
not many who so disgraced themselves,
their names and the religion, which is their
profession to leacb. But there are some
who will be remembered and made the
subjects of religious and moral condemna
tion, while they live and wherever they go. '
Such were the demoralizing effects of
means used in 1860, and such the end. But
other promises were made besides those by
which the means were used. We were
promised a sound curiency and plenty of it.
How has that promise been fulfilled ? It is
nseless for, me to relate what everybody
knows. Thus it can be seen that the end
jnsnfies the means. In short, the means
have brought this present tronble upon us.
Now in conclusion, I will say to my dem
ocralic friends, that patriotism is the spirit
by which onr political fabric is held togeth
er. The elective franchise is the soul of
our Republic and the freeman's boast.
Let it be supported and it will support all
the rest all will be safe. The solemnity
of ihe legal and judicial oath is the sheet
anchor of all onr moral, religious, ad po
litical irsimtions. Let corruption pollute
the ballot-box, and perjury corrupt the hall
of' Congress and the sacred sanctuary ol
truth, all is lost ; our institutions, political,
moral and religions, will all sink to ether,
and the offspring will be as it was in the
French Revolution ; our Legislative halls
will present but scenes of butchery ; plun
der, murder and arson w ill be but legalized
crimes; our Sabbath will be changed to a
decade of years, the hou-e of God to a sta
ble, the word of God and our revealed re
i.ion paraded through onr streets on an
is in contemptuous ridicule; our Redeem
er will be f nstponed to a murderer, your
Maker to a prostitute, styled the goddess of
reason, your judiciary will be converted
mo st trinmviate, your seat of Justice into a
oi!otine, and your fie'ds drenched in
blood. These, sir, will fill the measures of
- cli iniquity, such fraud, snch perjury,
c (1 stidi treason, as were practiced in
160 if persisted in unchecked and on
r raipe.l, by Congress. I fear the passage
ot the Kotancipauoii Bill will be the means
ot such violence; the acts of Congress, the
whirlwinds and tempests of party spirit and
party passions ran mountain high; the
safety of the Republic, the purity of the
security of our free instiintions, will not be
drawn into the vortex and wreck. Sir, my
heart is fixed against this emancipation
bill, and I feel as though I have a right to
appeal to the Democratic party, and if I
. bad the roico of thunder, I would extend
that appeal to the remotest parts of the
United Stales I would awaken the men
tion of every patriot, of every lover of hu
man liberty, and of our free institutions
and their duration, against the support of
this measure, and a sit the people whether
they are going to stand by and see Con
gress do as they please with the peoples'
constitutional rights destroy the constitu
tion in the face of all reason. There must
at the end ol this war, be a settlement with
the Abolition party. The Consiitution shall
and must stand in defiance of all opposition
and our glorious flag, from the very natore
of our government, and from the nature of
its representative character, the people
have a right to demand and know the prin
ciples and measures which shall govern
and be sustained, and that right demands
and cairies with it the duty and obligaticn
of every patriot, to inquire from proper
motives, touching the duties of Congress,
when violated. Patriot.
Record Your Deed. Persons holding
deeds should have them recorded if they
want to retain an indisputable title to their
property. Disputes without number, and
expensive and tedious lawsuits in many in
stances, grow out of not having convey
ances recorded. For be it remembered
thai if a deed is not recorded within six
months after its acknowledgement, the" per
son from whom the property is bought may
take a second and secret conveyance of it,
and if the second deed is first recorded, it
renders the first deed worthless. This
leaves the buyer no resource but by suit for
fraud against whom he purchased. This
double and many others would be spared
purchasers if they would immediately put
their deeds on record, and this may be
done at email expense. Let none of our
readers neglect this important mat'er lon
ger if they have conveyances in their pos
session. West Vikginia. ' In the Senate" yester
