the Government will admit of noiVelay.and
herce the more summary process of a draft
bat been determined on. Had cot Wilson,
c! Massachusetts, declared in the Senate
ix month ago, that we had more men than
we wanted, and demanded the discharge of
151,(709 troops evidently for the purpose of
o i-educing our Army as o compel the ac
ceptance of negro soldiers ; and had not
the Abolition clamors so far controlled the
Vuipo-itfs ol the Administration as to stop
enVi-iinenls on several occasions, in all
probability the necessity for a resort to draft
ing; would not now exist. Bat it does exist.
The rebellion has assumed snch proportions
lbi.t it can only be met and subdued by an
otitrw helming force. To temporize any
loiger,or to re if upon anything but the
en ploymetit of the warlike resources of the
tii.ion to their utmost extent, would be fa
tal i to the Union cause. Those who still
ha J to the opinion that a draft will not be
rniula that the orders have only been is
sued to stimulate voluntary enlistments
wire never mora xiistaken in their lives.
Canitte supposed that the Government
v.i!J be guilty of such trifling at a crisis
like this ?" By no means. The orders are
peremptory, and the regulations . for the
arollmeut and drafi of the Slilitia, which
have Leeu &ei forth in detail, show that the
work is to be done in earnest. Oar armies
m the Celd demand instant reinforcement,
iid oor t-afe'y requires the immediate or
giuizaMn of a reserve force large enough
lurany tttfure emergency. The surest way
tdpreveni such an emergency is to prepare

merit's warning. The lara body of vclan

them out of the way; a'nd leave those pes
tilent Abolition agirators at home to man
age the elections and politics generally.
But we can hardly believe that the officers
of the Government will' listen to such dis
honest and tfangeTous counsels. . '. Should
they do so, the terrible retribution of an
outraged people will soon overtake them.
Le? the draft be condncted with strict jus
tice and impartiality, and there will be no
trouble about enforcing it.
. We are no advocate at all, says the Loa
isville Journal, tot that 'rosewater policy
that would use no severity against the guil
ty in this- rebellion. Oa the contrary, we
do not thick there is any punishment they
do not deserve. Injustice, however, is not
policy in any case. There is nothinn but
evil in it. Hence' wa'are utterly opposed
to all confiscation bills, as they punish more
of the innbCentthan of the guilty. For
this reason corruption of blood or forfeit
ure;" except duringjthe lifetime of the con
victed, are forbiddert in orxf CoYistrtation.
If the Constitution imposed no restriction
on the power to punisn, treason, still the
reasons against confiscation remain. The
late bill applies only to future acts, but it
applies lo all who are in arms sixty days
after a i proclaTnaiidn, by the President.
Now, if men South were free, there 'might
be some reason in that, 'but they are under
a de facto Government, a military despotism
and what right has a Government to punish
i mad'fortrtasdn if it does not protect him
in his loyalty ? Men South are driven into
the army, and have no choice iajlhe matter
they can't obey proclamations if they would.
The application of such a law, therefore.'is
exceedinlyiuhjust. It is well krtown that
no state went oat of ths Union by the vote
of her people. An'arrried'ofganization si
lenced the loyal Sentiment in Tennessee
We may rail at a majority that alio we'd a
minority to play the despot over the State,
but men armed organized can - hold in ter
ror any community' unatfrfidd'arid ondfgan-
tzed. Indeed, a measure so palpably on-
just will arways defeatjtself. It will never
be executed. We have said a Government
tran't punish disloyalty unless it Can protect
the loyal. We often hear that po loyal sen
timent appears in many sections of the
Southwhichf -onr armies, pass? through. We
are not surprised at it. The citizen knows
that any demonstration on his part friendly
to the Government will be watched and
punished if the army leaves, and consults
only his sftlf-preservation'by'sifence. Af
ter the sixty days allowed by the Haw ex
pire, then what is the citizen to do ? He
can have no motive lo come back to the
Union, bet the strongest that raa operate
upon the human heart to' reaistro the last
extremity. We asked a Union man from
Alabama if the people of that state would
come back to the Uniori. His reply was,
that we gave them no chance to come back,
we offered them only the hatter and con -fUcalions.
Such laws, then,' only operate
as scare crows to scare men into the Con
federate armies, whilst they don't reach
the guilty at all; andhence theyT.willJn'ot
be sustained by the moral sense of mankind.
The great mass have been'driven Jinto Re
bellion by intimjdation. The leaders care
not for confiscation bills. They dare the

What's ia tHe Wlnii I
"Forney's Press, of Monday, is down upon
Wendell Phillips with what, forafirsl effort
on the part of that renegade, incendiary
sheet, may be called "sharp sticks." Wha1
does it mean ? When the pot caMa the ket
tle blackey there must be cause for it, and
we strongly suspect that some of Wendell's
late freaks, a little too undisguised to suit
the Machiavellian policy of the Washing
Uu understrappers, have interfered with
sme darling policy, hich has' not yet
come to fall fruition that, for instance,
which contemplates the arrest and impris
onment witil after election, of Democrats
enough to secure the political power of the
State in the handa of the Republicans. A
little prudence on the part of the abolition
brethren, just enough silence to keep them
in the back ground, and enable the Govern
ment, by rapid winking and a little cotton
in the ears, to shot them out from sight and
hearing, might have accomplished wonders
in pushicg on that magnanimous policy to
a glorious consummation. Bat prudence is
just what the Abolitionists do tiot possess,
and Phillips, especially, ia the. avowed en
emy of everything that savors of discretion.
He will not be still, and bis treason is so
brazen, so boldly and cleatly expressed,
that, with all their winking and dodging
and other expedients, the powers at Wash
ington cannot shot out the last of its exis

them they dare not aei with manifest in
justice they dare not confine arrest to
Democrats while Phillips, and Pillsbcry,

generous people to swallow without remon

capacity of a warning bell, tolls out. an in

; TO THE DEMOCRATS -
i AKD' ALL OTHER VRIKKDS OF THE
Constitution and Union in Penn i.
At the" meeting of the Democratic Sta e
Central Cornraittee,held the 29th ult.the fol
lowing resolution was adopted :
Resolved That the ;ChairmarV call; upo n
i the loyal men of Pennsylvania, through tite
Democratic Standing Committees of tie
several counties, to meet in the several cit
ies and counties df the State, at such places
as shall be designated by the said standing
Coramitleesrespectively, on the 17th of
September next, to celebrate that' day as
the anniversary of the day 'of the adopt! bn
of the Constitution of the United States.
Pursuant to these resolutions, I call upon
the Democratic Standing Committees te
speclively in the several cijies and coun
ties of'Penrtsylvanla' lo request the Demo
crats and all other loyal citizens to convene
in mass meetings at such places and at stch
hoursjas they respectively may'! Uesfgnate,
the lT,h of "September next, to con
memorate the adoption of the Constitution
of the United States of America.
Since the 17th of September, 1787, ih'jre
has been no period in the history of Ameri
ca when it was so eminently fitting i nd
important as he; present lo bring to the',at
tention of the American people great fun

any Government where Civil and religious
liberty exist, and especially those that un
derlie the Government of this1 Uniona
Union which rests for its foundation upon
that Constitution which affirms and propo
se to make sacred and perpetual thise
principles. That Constitution' atid tiat
Union one and inseparable are now as
sailed by foes throughout the whole land,
by Secessionists in the South and Abolition
ists in the North. The former by a bold
organized, armed movement, Mrike directly
and avowedly at the 'whele sovereign
ty and existence of our Constitutional Gov.
ernment. The latter by equally direct ef
forts but from ' under the cloak of rece tily
declared friendship and patriotism, are
seeking to thrust their traitorous stile ;tos
into the hart's blood of the nation.
TheJ people 0f this land are th sourca of
all power. They made Constitutions, and
(bey can, and, (unless they would become
the victims of despotism or anarch) must
uphold them. The great fundamental prin
ciples of civil and religious liberty asserted
in the' ArhenCa'n Constitution are essential
to secure us in the enjoyment of life aod
property, and in the pursuit of happinsss.
Among these are the freedom of speech
and of the Press, the 'tight of the people
peaceably to assemble, the right of the peo
ple to be secure in tfieir persons, houses,

That the powers not delegated to the United
States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited
by it to the States, are reserved to the States
respectively, or to the people.
Among the powers not delegated to the
United States, but reserved to the States re
spectively or to the people, is the riglit lo
bold elections and to determine upon and
fix the qualifications of voters. Wit i the
people of Pennsylvania this great right is
fixed by the Constitution of toe State, and
no power bat that 'Constitution, and laws
enacted in pursuance thereof , can prohibit
the exercise of; or limit or restrain that
right a rght most inestimable to oor peo
ple, and formidable to tyrants Only.
Fellow countrymen", on the coming anni
versary of the day of the adoption of the
American Constitution, in the exercise of
"the right of the people peaceably io as
semble," let us all solemnly and reverantly,
in the face of all men and before Heaven,
declare our firm determination "to pledge
oor lives, our fortunes, and our sacred hon
ors," 4:to preserve, protect and defend the
Constitution of the United States.'-' Let us
afford to President Lincoln the most indu
bitable evidence, that in the observance ol
his oath ot office to do the same thing, we
will uphold and sopport him, just as readi
ly as we have already shown him that in
filling up from oar ranks the great bulk of
the army, now and heretofore in the field,
we have always been ready at wh never
sacrifice to strike down open and armed
defiance to the execution of the law s and
to the sovereignty of the Governmen t. As
Democrats, and therefore as loyal men, we
can know no other principle of political ac
lion, but to uphold the Government and
obey the law?, and that the best evidence
of our firm purpose to do so is, thi t as a
part of the people, we will demand the
maintenance of the Constitution in all its
parte and tha preservation of the Ut ion in
its perfect integrity, and that we wi'l hold
all men. North as well as South, who assail
oar Constitution, u whole or in part, as dis
loyal men, and the enemies of the Union of
these States. President Lincoln, in lis in
aognral address, quoting the entire j rovis
ion in the Constitution of the United States,
relative to Ibe return of fugitives front labor
from any State, truly said that he found that
provision ''as plainly written in the Consti
tution as any other ;" and in the cane ad
dress he justly declared! have no purpose
directly or indirectly to interfere with the
institution of slavery in the States where it
exists. : I believe I have no lawful tight to
da bo, and I have do inclircatkm to ik so."
Yet the Abolitionists o the North are to day
bringing to bear upon President Lincoln a
fearlul pressure' to induce him to exeft al(
the powers which his official position in
present circumstances affords, to act count
er to this "plain provision in the Constitution
and to hi own pledge to the American
people. This pressure has been so great J
uiu i icaiucui, in uia uiga position, was
induced to appeal' to the Union-loving Con
gressmen from the Border Slave States for
relief. Let the ho!e loyal people of the
State of Pennsylvania come forward in
mass meetings, and with our patriotic and
determined voice give assurance to Presi
dent Lincoln of that' relief which he seeks.
Let us assure him that the orrly relief he can
ever obtain is from the loyal masses, num
bering at least 300,000 men in Pennsylva
nia alone, who are firmly resolved that as
ttiejf aire the sources of all power, and are
the supreme power in the land, they intend
to rfpreserve, protect and defend the Con
stitutionof the United States," against all
its foes, whether Abolitionists' or Secess
ionists. Come, fellow-countrymen, as yon value
the great principles of the Constitution as
you love the Union of these" States as you
would avert despotism or anarchy as it is
your right lo defend the Constitution
against all its foes, and as it has the power
to do bo',' devote tho 17th of September next
to Jsuch "demonstrations of the popular
heart as will give moral support to all the
friends of the country and serve to guide
the policy of the officers of the government
in opposition to deadly and fatal counsels.
1 need not add the counsels which the aho
Iitionists.seek to give. Next to the possess
ion of our constitutional frights, we should
strive to secure the' most; thorough obser-
vance of order, and the personal rights of
every citizen. Our enemies'sek to impute
to us a willingness1 to' produce a collision
of forces. If, by this, is meant "merely a
determination to have our rights under the
Constitution, at whatever" sacrifice, let .us
assure them that while we feel to surrender
these rights would degrade our manhood,
and, the'bfore, no such surrenderee ver will
be made, yet as good citizens we will yield
trervlhini tint nn. Imnn. -n.l
to avert eoch coI1:sion -we itt .-iau ,rt
wd bave the right to expect.and I trut and
hope, yea believe, we shall have the help
of the officers of the Governm en: to aid us
in p oiecting our rights and averting such
collision. "Let as show these enemies that
we well understand the baseness of the
hearts that, determined upon monstrous
wrong, would persist in such wron$, and
impute direful catastrophies which they
may thus occasion to the friends of tr.e Con
stitution of the laws, and therefore of the
perseverance of perfect order. Standing
np as we do,only to resist aggression upon
our rights, upon the heads of the
aggressors must be the Tesponsibility of
any consequence of evil. But, which may
yoo my country men, and the officers of
the Government co-operating, guided by
kind Heaven avert.

have no doubt that our quota of the second

for a draft would not now exist. But it does
exist. Our brethren in the field demand

Johx Bull is never ihe wiser for experi
ence to judge by bis manner of talking.
He seems as much surprised at official mis
management in the Unite J States, as if the
history of the English Government were
not a long record of official blunders. He
is apparently as much astonished at army
Irauds and military inefficiency, as if the
Crimean war were wholly forgotten. He
appears to be as much shocked at Ameri
can barbarities, real' and imaginary, as if
his India-campaigns had nevarbeen report
ed. And he Eneers at the idea of restoring
'This Union," as if he had never read in
his own' books that the separate peoples
who now constitute the united nation of
i Great Britain, were for many years the
' most hostile and ferocious of enemies, and
were at last brought into fellowship and
mutual respect by the rough appliances of
war ! civil war ! Verily John Bull is an
ass or a hypocrite.
