FOR PBI8ICENT in 1864, -
GEORGE S. M'CLELLAN,
Subject to (he Decisina of the Democratic
Tbe EnrcIIcieat Bill-
The Enrollment. Bill baa finally passed
both Houses and no doubt ere this has re
ceived the autograph of Abrha at I , after
which it becomes a law. The Bill provides
for tbe payment of S3 OS, at commutaiioo
fee, and fixes the. length of time exempt by
the payment of S300 at one year; at tbe ex
piration of which time the person's name
is pat back into the wheel. The only ex
empts are, those who are rejected as physi
cally or mentally uo fit for service; all per
sons actually in the military or naal ser
vice of the United States at the time of the
draft, and all person .who have served in
the military or naval service two years dar
ing the present war. and been honorably
discharged. No persons bat each as are
herein exempted shall be clear of doing
miliary service. Ati elections by parents,
and the support of motherless children, has
been stricken oat. Person having consci
entioos scruples had better lay them by as
they can't coma in for exemption. The bill
provides for the throwing of the two classes
together and making the next draft oat of
the whole as one class. All persons who
f Ornish substitutes roust offer those who
are not liable, or else they will not be ac
cepted. A tabstitate sot liable to draft will
exempt the person be goes' for no longer
than the time for which seen substitute
hall have been accepted.
An esrnest effort is just now being made,
principally by the Loyal Leaguers beaded
by the Government contractors, to prevent
the future circulation of State bank notes,
eo that greenbacks may become our only
circulating medium. The plan proposed
is to lax the State bank circulation to such
a extent a to compel (he banks to with
draw their notes now in use and not to is-
'o "j uiore upon ins same principle
these currency mongers ought to pass a
: law prohibiting the mining of gold and sil
ver, for in former times people made cir
culating medium cf these, and what has
been done may be done again.
' Our State Bank'system is one of the best
for the purpose of Banking that was ever
Revised, arid :Ji9 people have more confi
dence in tha generality of the notes issued
voder it than they have in any other paper
issues. A healthy competition between
tham and National currency could scarcely
fail to redound to the National good, and,
ic our opinion, ought to be maintained.
We have never favored paper money of any
sort, bat as aotfcipg else can be had now,
we say let Ob at least have a choice be
tween that to which the people have been
accastoraed and any other thai may be is
sued by pebiie authority. We have no
laitb in the assertion that the Government
or the people wo aid be benefited by tbe pro
posed measure, but believe that both would
be injured and the latter oppressed.
Ire Slates Ratios! J
It is ominocs of great evil that we read
cow a-days, in all the journal which are
in the service, from principle or from pay,
f the reigning Administration, disparaging
and contemptuous illusions to the term
"Elate," as if a Slate," as it figure in
American politics, were something a little
tnore perhaps than a county, but much less
than a sovereign nation. It offends the ear
of these sensitive critics to hear it asserted
that when the thirteen .colonies declared
their Independence, - they erected them
elves into so many nations which are call-
- J . - - M L. ! . 1 l
c a I.MHC3, caiti pusBaiu ius plenary
sovereign character and attributes. Now tbe
tact is that S:ate and nation are convertible
terms. A Stale is a nation. A satioa is a
Stats ; and we every day, and in the most
formal po;uca! documents, see these terms
csed indiHareniiy, as quite synonymous.
Nation does cot always imply the possess
ion cf sovereign character by the eommu
r.ii to which the terra is applied. Then
we hear of the Irish nation, the Scotch na
tier), the English nation, though the indi
vidual sovereignty ol IreUnd, Scotland and
England is absorbed and., lost in that ol
"The Vaiisd Kingdom of Great Britain and
Ireland.! The term Stale, as used in Ameri
c,nn politics, no less- than nation, implies
the highest condition of political being, and
is consistent with tbe highest eevereign ' at
trit es. Witness the language cf our own
Declaration of Independence, the best au
tt.cri y that can be adduced for the purposes
cf ibis article. That .instrument declares
xhii t!,3 thirteen colonies "are absolved
trom all allegiance to the Briiit-h crown
and that all political connection between
theni and the Sia-e cf Great Britain is and
os;U to be totaily dissolved ; and that as

... A FIsiIi cf Truth. -
It is refreihing in these days of crimina-
tion, detraction, falsehood and vilification
by tbe whole hoards of Abolition orators,
slang-wangers and editors, to find an occa
sional truthful "assertion sparkling like a
beautiful brilliant among a huse, pile of
unseemly filth. When we do see an exam-
pie ct the kind, a thing most rare, it is
worthy of note, for seldom do tbe "support
ers" of Abolitionism allow a' iust word to
fall to the credit of their political opponents.
The moat remarkable acknowledgment of
tbe kind which we have noticed comes
from tbe New York Irifcune, a source from
which we might least expect it, and is in. the
following language r - . -
"The northern democracy is not really
pro-slavery, but anti-intervention: maintain
ing, not that slavery is right, but thai we oi
the free States should mind .our own busi
ness and lei alone other people's." .
This is no more than the plain and invar
nished truth, and howeve r much it varies
from the hue and cry of proslaveiy " rais
ed by the curs of the Tribune party at the
heelrof the Democracy, do man will pre
tend to gainsay it. Coming from a source
which no "loyal" man will say is not onh
dox in Abolitionism, it is entitled at least
to respect from the unrelenting ioes of De
mocracy. "The northern Democracy is not pro
slavery," and because it was in earnest and
honest in its support ef the government and
its primary principles, which left to tbe
States all rights not delegated to tbe Fed
eral Government, and consequently could
uo consent to the intermeddling of Con
gress into tbe domestic affairs of the States,
it was denounced by tbe Tribune and pa
pers of that ilk as pro-slavery. The non
intervention principle, which the Tribune
accords to ih Democracy, is the very cor
nerstone of the national governmen;al fab
ric, and for the reason that the parly op
posed to it, advocated the right of Congress
to legislate for the States as such, is tbe
very reason that the Democracy and con
servatives of the north lay at the door of Re
publican Abolitionism the crime of having
brought upon the country the dreadful
conrge of the present civil war Nor can
they escape it. They may flippautly prate
about slavery being the cause of the war,
and to cover up tbeit own criminality in
the matter advocate its extinction as neces
sary to the preservation of tbe Union ot the
States, but every man of sense knows full
well that it was their interlerence with the
Institution of slavery, their meddling with
other people's business and not minding
their own that produced the disintegration
of the Federal Union and entailed upon us
and alter generations the tremendous bur
den of taxation necessary to carry out their
schemes of mistaken philanthropy.
Poor Pennsylvania has had a dreary ex
perience with her Generals. It is a cata
logue of sorrow and disappointment. Rey
noldsa noble man in every sense a gen
eroaa, high-spirited soldier lies in his
bloody grave of honor perhaps better off
than any survivor. Franklin is sent as far
away as possible, to serve under a new
England volunteer. McCIellan, disappoint
ed and insul'ed, is ruminating in silence in
his New York home, which the bounty ol
strangers has furnished him. McCali is
rusticating in "Chester county, uncertain to
whom he belongs and what he ought to do.
Andrew Porter is in comfortable retirement
in Philadelphia, vtitri the poor consolation
of having once been Secretary Seward's
Provost Marshal, and havinj arrested Gen.
Stone and put a sentry at Judge Merrick's
front door. Henry Naglee relieved from
duty, because he bearded in his den the
lion of the War Department, and pot the
stigma of personal insult on an official
ruffiin. Meade, the most successful of
them all who has from the beginning to
the end done a soldier's duty, and no more
who does not make war on woman and
children is holding his position by the
precaroos tenure of success. Meigs also,
we believe, a son of Pennsylvania writ
ing from exile such letters to Secretary
Stanton! This is our heroic roll. This is
our array of military martyrs or military
Riots in Carbon Cocntt A military
commission, in Carbon county, has been
engaged in trying tbe participants in the
draft riots in that county. Tbe Democrat
there alleges thai the resistance was occa
sioned more by tbe improper and illegal
conduct of tbe ofBcers than by the dread of
citizens to being dragged from home and
family to become subjects for some Fred
ericksburg slaughter. By the law which
regulates the draft the very law 'which
giveb the Administration tbe power to draft,
it is provided that perfcon resisting in any
way shall be arrested and handed over to
the CIVIL AUTHORITIES." But in direct
violation of this law, passed by themselves,
they try these men before a military court,
thus violating their own laws and setting
deSance to tbe Courts. When the admin
istration mob, riot and disregard the laws,
how can they expect the people to do bet
ter than themselves.

EebbiBg Soldiers. . : . . ,
r There appears to be a regular gang of
scoundrels hanging abou Harrisburg of late
who play the nefarious trade of robbing sol
diers and new . recruits by forcing them
selves npon their acquaintance and by in
v'uing them to driiik, take the opportunity
to pot drugs in their liquor, which, when
the soldier partakes of, renders him obliv.
ious and insensible to what is going cn
around him, when he falls an easy prey to
these sharpers. Scarcely & dJ passes that
the Harrisburg papers do not chronicle some
one or more vases ef soldiers being victimi
zed to villains. The same evil exists in
New York and Philadelphia. One of the
daily papers published in the latter city
says : "It is Irigbtful to think of the num
ber of careless soldiers who are thus vie
tomized . In many cases, death, results
trom the machinations of thee villains,
and in hundreds of other instances sickness
and disgrace are tbe concomitants." No
soldier should carry about him large sums
of money, and especially should none ol
them be too willing to pick chance ac
quaintances in taverns, places of amuse
ment or in the streets. As many young
men are enlisting from this section and re
ceiving large bounties, who will be subject
to the same temptations when they arrive
in the large cities, we warn them in
advance, and urge them in advanco,
to take a note ol the . above and be
discreet, and above alt things avoid those
strangers with their "flash" air and plau
sible speech will whom they will be thrown
in contact. By doing so they will not only
save their greenbacks, but likewise their
health and reputation which is ol much
more iro portauce. Danville Intelligence.
ShWGOLiR Discrepancy. In General Mc
Clsllan's report is a letter from him to E.
M. Stanton, Secretary of War, under date
of June 28, 1862. In "the report on the
conduct of the war" (Part I, folio 339) is
the seme letter with a slight variation. In
Gen.- McClellan's report Ibe two last sen
tences of this letter are : ''If I save this
army now, f tell yon plainly that I owe no
thanks to you, or to any other person in
Washington. You have done your test to
sacrifice this army." In "the report on Ibe
conduct of the war." the charge against
Stanton is omitted.
Query J Was it properly left out in the
copy furnished the committee by Stanton to
shield himself, or by the committee to
whitewash him ? If so it shows the parti
san conduct of that committee, and throws
a suspicion on the truth of trteir whole re
port Gen. McClkllan's Rcpobt. But few of
those who will be anxious to possess a copy
of Major General McClellan's Report of his
connection with the Army of tbe Potomac,
will be able to get one of the very limited
edition allowed to be published by Con
gress ; and the hosts of the friends of tbe
Army and its popular General will be
pleased lo learn that the work is now in
press, and will soon be issued by Sheldon
& Company, Publishers, 225 Broadway,
Their copy will also contain an introduc
tory chapter, by the General, on the cam
paign inWestern Yirginia. It will be illus
trated with maps, &c, and be far superior
to the government edition.
To our Friends in the Country. We
find the following in an exchange. It is so
much to the point, and expresses so briefly
and plainly what we desire lo impress up
on our readers, that we copy it entire.
' Friends, everywhere in the country,
give us facts of pablic intere-l that may oc
cur in your respective neighborhoods. Let
Clergymen of all denominations report re
vivals; the erection of new churches, scnool
examinations or such other matters as may
come under their observation ; let physici
ans report deaths, accidents. &c., let juttices
of the peace report trials or examinations
of public interest; and let friends generally
remember to post the editor. Il is no
opinions or essays that we want, but facts
not long essays, but in brief, the 'cream of
the mates r.' "
The Abmt or the Potomac Gen. Meade
made a short speech, at the recent ovation
given him in Philadelphia, in which be
spoke in high terras of the discipline and
valor of the Array of the Potomac, and as!
an evidence of the hardships il bad en
countered and the service it had done,
pointed to the fact that, since the com
mencement of hostilities, it had lost one
hundred thousand men. We venture to say
that no other army has lost as many ; and
yet, owing lo tbe interference of Lincoln
and his War Secretary, tbe fruits which
should have been the reward of so mucb
blood are yet to be gathered.

is a splendid magazine ; in no respect in

At Gettysburg 28,000 muskets were taken
It is stated that of these 24,000 were found
to be loaded, 12,000 containing two loads,
and 6,000 from three to ten loads' each. In
many, instances half - a dozen balls were
driven in on a single charge of powder. In
some cases the former possessor had revers
ed tbe usual order, placing the ball at the
bottom of the barrel and the powder on
top- . v
Pat or Soldiers. The House Military
Committee at Washington considered at
length the question of increasing the pay of
soldiers. A bill was ordered to be pre
pared for that purpose, which will be
brought before the House in a few days.
The Committee is considerably divided as
to the amount of iscrease. It will probably
be fixed at eighteen dollars per month.
LATE WAR NEWS.
. We have often cautioned our readers
against giving much belief td anything
which comes from Cairo It is tbe most
notoriously unreliable of all the Western
news centres. To-day we have the an
nouncement from that point that General
Sherman's expedition reached Meridian ten
days after leaving Yicksburg. As it took
seven days for him to march forty miles,'
frora Vicksburg' to Jackson, we scarcely
think that he can go eighty miles from
Jacksou to Meridian in three days The
Cairo telegrapher should be a little more
accurate in his statements. On Feb. 11th
Gen. Sherman was at Jackson. Afterward
be was heard of at Brandon, ten railss on
the road to Meridian, and then the enemy
interposing between his rear and Yicksburg
cut off all communication and consequently
all news. He may be at Meridian, but we
scarcely believe it yet.
From Louisiana we learn that on Feb. 7th
the Confederates under General Ta)lor
attacked tae Federal camp at Yilalia on
on the Mississippi opposite Natchez. Their
force numbered three thousand. They were
repulsed with loss and compelled to retreat.
Nothing else of importance has occurred in
that section. -
From the army of the Potomac it is re
ported that on 'Thursday last a cavalry
reconnoissance towards Aldie captured
twenty-eight guerrillas and fifty horses.
General Meade has again been summoned
to Washington; the object is reported being
to divide his army into three grand divis
ions under Generals Sedgwick, Hancock,
The result of the expedition to Jackson
ville, Florida, as telegraphed to Washing
ton by Gen. Gillmore. is the capture of one
hundred prisoners and eight cannon. A
reconnoissance lately made from the . Fed
eral camp at Folly Island, Charleston, cap
tured four field pieces with their caissons,
ammunition and gunners. Five negroes
of ike expedition were killed
It is reported that by a recent Federal
raid into Wayne county, Western Virginia,
sixteen hundred Federal prisoners were
released aod sixty Confederates captured.
Twenty, two Confederates were captured in
From reports of 'deserters and refugee
coming into.General Kelly's lines, it is evl
dent that the rebels are making extensive
preparations rlong the line of the Virginia
and Tennessee Railroad, either apprehen
ding an advance from ps, or preparing for
an offensive movement themselves. Guer
rillas are active in the Kanawha region.
From the activity displayed by the for
ces of General Lee, it is anticipated by
army officer Irom the front that the ensu
ing campaign will be opened by a raid on
a gigantic scale through Pennsylvania.
It is now stated that there will be . no
change in Ihe command of the Army of the
Potomac. General Mede is again at his
headquarters, ic improved health.
Is it Treason.
The Boston Courier, in the following an
ecdotes, throws some lurid iisht upon the
bloodstained iotrigue lo which M'Clellan's
men and the nation's cause were sacrificed:
"We do not believe it possible to add to
the works of Gen M'CIeilan, but we desire
to pot oa record a conversation reported to
us, on the best of authority, more than a
year ago, as having ihu recently occurred,
between a leading politician of a New
England State and the Secretary of War
Said the Secretary : "Gen. M'Cle'lan is
getting toopopuhr, tee will have lo check him ''1
"You will have lo check him very quick
then, or he will get in Richmond,' respon
ded his interlocutor. Oh he cannot do thut
he has not men enough and tee don't intend to
send him cy r.wteV wa jjie ansser of the
Secre'ary Stanton. Well might he be
shortly afterwards charged to his face by
tbe man whom be sought to destroy, with
' doing bis best tp sacrifice the army."
The Harrisbnrg Telegraph speaking of the
New Hampshire election, says the leaguers
are making a great effort, and among other
things are "ai getting home the absent vo
ttrs." This in what they did in th e State,
last fall. They got home the "absent vo
ters" to ihe number of 87,000. They may
well be called absent voters, for many had
been absent lor a number of years and a
large number of them never lived in the
Slate. From tbe Telegraph's remarks we
most infer thut colonization is to carry New
"Vote for Curtin and avoid the draft,"
said Republican journals before the elec

is the cry since tbe election.

Why some other lie or false pretense of
course. They have been changing names,
cheating, robbing and sailing under false
promises ever since they had an existance.
Some abolitionist who reads the above
will doubtless say "that's a lie !" oo stop
and think, it is as true as holy writ.
A correspondent of the Selinsgrove Times
asserts that a medical student from Free
burg, Snyder county, recently brought beme
part of the skin of a negro wench and in get
ting it tanned at Geo. Hilbisb's tannery, in
tending to make a pair oi riding gloves.
Tbe correspondent wonders whether old
Abe is stealing negroes for their hides.
The abolition squirming in tbe Senate
case is remarkable. They all said the
Democrats should give way, because White
was in prison, when they all knew White
bad resigned in November last, or if this is
not true, then his resignation was forged.
Tbe Abs have taken a half dozen positions,
bat none of them are tenable.
. At present writing we are uninformed as
to the result of the Senatorial corneal in
