SUSPENSION OF THE HABEAS CORPUS.
In another part of to-days Journal we pub
lish President Lincoln's Proclamation suspen
ding the writ of habeas corpus in cases where
persor.s are held
'As prisoners of war, spies, or aiders or abet
tors of tlie enemy, or officers, soldiers, or sea
men enrolled, drafted, or mustered or enlist
ed in, or belonging to land or naval forces of
the United States, or as deserters therefiom
or otherwise amenable to military law or the
rules and articles of war, or for resisting the
draft, or for any other offence against the mil
itary or naval service."
The President says that "in his judgment
the public safety" required him to suspend
the privileges of the writ in the cases enumer
ated, and calls upon all whom it may con
cern" to "conduct and govern themselves ac
cordingly." This suspension will not inter
fere with the privileges of any loyal man, or
with any person who will obey the lawn of the
United States. It is only intended to operate
against traitors and their sympathisers, and
those who disregard and set at defiance our
The Philadelphia Press notices the Presi
dent's Proclamation as follows :
The President of the United States has ta
ken a firm and fearless, but a wise and consti
tutional step, in defence of the Union and all
the great interests dependent on its preserva
tion:' He has suspended the writ f Habeas
Corpus until the rebellion is ended. The
power which this suspention will give the
President would bo dangerous in the hands
of a corrupt ruler, bat the honesty and incor
tuptible patriotism of Abbauam Lincoln
guaranty its upright and impartial exercise.
We know that the act was demanded by na.
tional neccessities, and that all loyal men will
The objects of the measure are evident : it
is specially intended to prevent disloyal oppo
sition to the conscription uuder legal preten
ces, and to arm the Government against the
formation of treasonable organizations for its
destruction. That it is not intended, in any
way, to interfere with the rights of loyal cit
izens, no one can doubt, though we may ex
pect the Democracy to denounce it, as they
have already denounced every efleetive action
of the Government for the restoration of peace.
It is a satisfaction, however to know that they
can say nothing worse of the Government
than they now say ; it is already, in their pre
tended opinion, the worst tyranny the world
ever knew, and twenty times more unworthy
tho trust of the people than the foul conspi
r icy it is endeavoring to crush. Therefore,
they may misrepresent this measure as they
now falsify and calumniate the conscrip
tion act, the proclamation of emancipation,
and the law which confiscates the property of
rebels, but they cannot deceive those they
have failed to deceive before, nor cause the
loyal people and the Government to swerve
in performance of their duty.
The President, in thus suspending, tor a
timo, the operation of the writ, has acted by
the authority of Congress, which expressly
conferred upon him the right, and is justified
by the necessities of the national situation.
In tho performance of his duty he could not
hesitate, and strong in bis own conscious in
tegrity ,we believe that he justly depended up
on the approval of the American people.
Henceforward, men who give secretly their
aid to treason cannot escape just punishment.
Tho President has acted in behalf of the high
est interests of the Republic, and has given
additonal assurance of his determination to
restore peace and order to the whole country.
LITTLE MAINE,. O.K.
Maine has done nobly for the Union causo.
Gony has been elected Governor by over 1G,-
000 majority a gain of more than 10,000
since last year.
Tho State Senate will stand 30 Union to 1
Copperhead ; tho House about 110 Union to
31 Copperheads a Union gain of 5 Senators
and 19 Representatives since last year.
Thus, State after State is giving its influ
ence on tho side of the Union. We now have
the volco of Kentucky, Vermont, California
and Maino, in favor of a vigorous prosecution
of the war nntil the rebels shall lay down their
arms and submit to tho Constitution and laws
of tho United States. Pennsylvania and Ohio
will soon follow in tho track of their lesser
bisters, much to the chagrin of Southern trai
tors and Northern Copperheads.
The nobro enthusiasm and disinterestedness
of hosts cf Democrats in support of Curtin
should put to tho blush every hesitating Re
publican. In this struggle, he that is not for
tho Federal Government is assuredly against
it j and Curtin is the representative and chain
pi on of that Government.

THE STATE FINANCES
Gov. Curtin last week issued a proclama
tion announcing the cancellation of Aine Hun
dred and Fifty-four Thousand Seven Jiundred
and Twenty-four dollars and Forty cents of the
Public debt. This is truly a gratifying result,
when it is remembered that this was accom
plished during a tine when our country is en
gaged in a most stupendous war- In fact, the
administration of Governor Curtin stands ont
in bold relief, when compared with former
Locofoco adm inistrations, who invariably, in
times of profound peace, increased our State
debt yearly, instead of decreasing it. The or
dinary resources of the Government have been
increased, from year to year, through the
wise policy adopted by Gov. Ourtin, and by
this means' he was enabled to recommend a
reduction of our State taxes, as well as de
crease our State debt. We ask the tax pay
ers to remember these facts ! on the Second
Tuesday of October next. .
In referring to this subject, the Pittsburg
Daily Commercial, remarks:
'There Is one proof of good or bad adminis
tration of a State's affairs that all people will
recognize and appreciate, and that is found in
the management of its finances. Governor
Curtiirs administration can be submitted to
this test. He has just issued Irs proclama
tion announcing that the State debt has l-een
reduced, during the past year, 954,724 40.
So splendid a result, in a time of war, is sur
prising, and the people of Pennsylvania have
reason to congratulate themselves upon it.
The finances of the State have been wisely,
faithfully, economically and honestly man
aged. Would it not be the height of folly to
change a State administration that has done so
well, and put new and untried men into otficc.
Would it not be ingratitude of the worst kind,
to dism iss a Governor who has proved so faith
ful, and under whose bauds the burdens f
State taxations are yearly coming down We
have no fears that Gov. Curtin will be defeat
ed. The people know him, honor him and
trust him. and he has so many claims upon
their confidence, that it is scarcely necessary
to briDg before them this claim founded upon
his reduction of the State debt. But we want
to see him re-elected by such a rousing ma
jority as will forever silenee and crush the
Copperheads who are calumniating him and
trying to bring Pennsylvania into alliance
wiih the rebel States by electing George W.
Woodward. We want to have the rebels and
Copperheads taught by Pennsylvania a lesson
like that they have been taught bv Maine, but
on a much larger scale."
The only issue before the people of Penn
sylvania, and to be decided at the October e-
lection is the question of loyalty or disloyalty
to the Government. The Gubernatorial can
didates. we believe, distinctly represent these
two classes, and hence we accept no other is
sne.and will j udge of them accordingly. What
has been the course pursued by these gentle
men, Curtin and Woodward, since the com
mencement of the rebellion 1
Governor Curtin, as all wiil admit, has been
the warm supporter of the National Adminis
tration, and has never, by word nor action,
tailed to respoud to the necessities of the
Government, either in men or means. He
has always been the friend of the Union and
the friend of the soldier, and has given every
encouragement to promote the efficiency of the
army, with the hope that the rebels would soon
he forced to acknowledge the Constitution of
the United States as the supreme law of the
Xow, what is Geo. W. Woodward's record
Has he given such encouragement to the ad
ministration, or to our soldiers, or to the war
for the Union, as was extended by Gov. Cur
tin ? Not that we know of. On the contrary,
ha showed his aympathy for the rebels when he
proclaimed that "negro slavery was an iucalcu
" lable blessing to t" and "ws must arouse
" ourselves and REVsstRr the rights of the slave-
Pounsylvanians ! aro yon prepared to follow
the behests of Mr. Woodward Are you wil
ling to rebel against your Government ? We
think not. Then, throw aside your party pre
dilections, and vote for A. G. Curtin, the sol
diers friend, for the man who has always
supported the cause of the Union, and who
has never expressed one word of sympathy
for the Southern traitors.
CUBTIN AND WOODWARD.
The friends of A, G. Curtin have reason for
rejoicing at tho increasing prospect of hi e
lection by an overwhelming majority .whilst the
followers of Geo. W. Woodward are becom
ing more despondent. Our exchanges bring
us tidings almost daily, of new and important
accessions to the Union phalanx. One of the
most recent is Capt. Harry Foster, ol Centre
county, who is now in the army of the Poto
mac,and is well acquainted with both the can
didates. Hear what he thinks of them. In a
recent letter to his friends in that county he
"I firmly believe the elevation of Judge
Woodward to tho Executive Chamber of
Pennsylvania at tho present time would be the
most dire calamity that could befall our noble
old State, as well as the cause of the Union
everywhere Let the people of
Pennsylvania, therefore, re-elect Andrew G.
Curtin, is my prayer."
Such is the testimony of a Democrat from
Miles township.Centre county, and one whoso
fealty to his party has never been questioned,
and who has always stood high with the Dem
ocratic leaders. With such evidence against
the election of Geo. W. Woodward, and in fa
vor of A. G. Curtin, and the Union cause, can
any intelligent man longer hesitate for which
of the two candidates for Governor he should
cast his vote on the Second Tuesday of Octo
ber next 1 ; Surely not. ,
Ask Yourself. Ii Jefl Davis had the pow
er to elect the Governor of Pennsylvania this
fall, whom would he choose 1 George W.
Woodward, who with brazen effrontery from
the very steps of Independence Hall, upheld
the right of secession and the blessings of sla
very, or Andrew G. Curtin, who with untir
ing energy has urged forward troops and sup
plies to the national armies ; who has visited
and succored our wounded soldiers, and has
brought back tho bodies of our heroes slain, to
repose bftieatb the iotl they loved so well

To which class do you belong ?
HDW TO OBTAIN PEACE
The shortest way to obtain Peace would un
doubtedly Ihj for the rebels to lay down their
arms and submit to the maganimity of the
government ! but the leaders of the Copper
head democracy perhaps do not think that
mode constitutional, and hence submit other
projects. Mr. Vallandigham, for instance,
who is a shining light among the Woodward
democracy of Pennsylvania, on the 14th of
January, 18G3, proposed to make peace as fol
"Stop fighting. Make an armistice no for
mal treaty. Withdraw you army from the se
ceded States. Reduce both armies to a fair
and sufficient peace establishment. Declare
absolute free, trade between the North and
Sontfi. Buy andasell. Agree upon a zoll
verein. Recall your fleets. Break up your
blockade. Reduce your navy. Restore travel.
Open up railroads. Re-establish the telegraph.
Reunite your express companies. No more
Monitors and Iron. dads but set your friendly
steamers and steamships again in motion.
Visit the North and west. Visit the South.
Exchange newspapers. Migrate. Intermar
ry. Let Slavery alone. Hold elections at the
appointed times. Let us choose a new Presi
ident in sixty four. And when the gospel of
peace shall have descended again from heaven
into their hearts, and the gospel of abolition
and of hate been expelled, let your clerjry and
the churches meet again Christian intercourse.
North and South. Let the secret orders and
voluntary associations everywhere reunite as
brethern once more. In short, give to all
the natural and all the artificial causes which
impel us together, their fullest sway. "
Such are the sentiments of Vallandigham
the man who is lauded as a patriot and mar
tyr by the copperhead leaders as recorded in
the Cogressional proceedings, and pnblshed in
the "Daily Globe" of January loth 18C3.
What American, with a drop of patriotic blood
in his veins, will hold fellowship with party
leaders who bolster up such a craven spirit?

ANOTHER C0PPESHEAD SCHEME.
The most contemptible scheme yet con
cocted or planned by the Copperheads is tLat
which has for its object the assumption by
the United States of ttie rebel debt, if such a
course would sufficiently conciliate the South
to induce her to return to allegiance. The
authors ard abettors of this novel idea have
not as yet been sufficiently courageous boldly
to proclaim their desires or designs ; but now
and then may be observed in the columns of
their organs, carefully worded remarks, inten
ded as feelers with which to bring ont the
views of their equally disloyal cotemporaries,
and the sentiments of that portion of the com
munity who swallow without nauseating re
sults the doses offered for their acceptance by
their cunning journalists. It has always been
conceded that acoppertiead could be guiety of
any miserable trick or subterfuge upon the
calendar: but it was not supposed that their
craved spirits could induce them to suggest
or advocate such a project as that to which we
refer. The war which for more than two and
a half years has been devastating some of the
most beautiful sections of our country : which
has caused hundreds of thousands of our coun
trymen to pass prematurely from their sphere
of uesluluess, or walk our streets mutilated
representatives of their former selves ; and
which has caused the habiliments of grief to
clothe a large proportion of our population, is
the fruit of the machinations of the Southein
traitors, and was begun by them alone. Are
we then the innocent sulferers to c.me for
ward now and oiler to pay the indebtedness
ivhich has been incurred iu tho prosecution of
the very war which has brought upon us all
these evils As well might we supply the
assassin with means to purchase the knife
with which he intends to strike ; the burglar
with the funds wherewith to purchase the
tools with which he designs to break into our
premises: and the incendiary .with the pit
tance to be expended for the matches and fluid
with which he is to burn our property. And
yet these sympathizers with villainy these
tucklers with slavery dare in their inlamy
to suggest that we shall pay the, debt of trea
son. The plotting of these men, hideous as
they ate in all their varied forms, have cul
minated in tiiis, the last of their unholy
It is now m!y hinted at in their journals,
discussed in their secret gatherings, and
broached in their private conversation ; hut
they only await the hour when temporary suc
cess resuscitates their treasonable energies and
eiubo'dens their traitorous totigrues, to pro
claim londly their wish. Let Union men be
upon their guard against this new rascality,
and by voice and vote show the Southern reb
els that this additional measure for reconcilia

Judge Lowrie on the Necessities of the Poor
Kan and the Kich Man
Correspondence of the Pittsburg Garette.
Mkssrs. Editors. Judge Lowrie, in deliv
ering the opinion of the Supreme Court in the
"Sunday law" case, wherein it was claimed
by the prosecutor that if thepaor could not ride
to church on Sunday, in the cars, the n'cA
should not ride to church in their carriages.
In other woids, "what is sauce forthe goose
onght to be sauce tor the gander." Judge
Lowrie had before decided that it was a viola
tion of the law for the cars or omnibus to run
on Sunday, because it was a desecration of the
Lord's day, and as many believed the cars and
the omnibuses w-re the poor man's carriage,
they should be allowed to ride in them on
Sunday, but Judge Lowrie said no! Then the
people turned about and said Judge Lowrie
rides to church on Sunday in his carriage, we
will arrest his driver for doing his worldly
business of driving for tho Judge on Sunday ;
and so the Jndge's driver was arrested with
other drivers, and Mr. Logan's driver took his
case to the Supreme Court, and Judge Lowrie
had the modesty to write out and deliver the
opinion, and as the case turned upon the ne
cessity of riding to church on Sunday, and it
was claimed that as the- poor man' carriage
had been stopped, the rich man's should be
stopped also. He defined the term necessity,
in the precise words following. to wit : " What
may be a luxury or a pleasure to a poor man
may be a necessity rchen he has grown rich !"
The plain English of which is, that when a
man is poor it is not necessary for'him to ride
to church, he should walk, but when he siich
it is necessary for him to ride to church. Er
go, the drivers of the carriages of Lowrie and
Logan drove for rich men, therefore, it was a
case of necessity, and under the law it was no
offence ; but the drivers of the omnibus were
WOODWARD ON SLAVERY.
On our first page to-day, will be found Judge
Woodward's opinion on Slavery, on two im
portant occasions. The one, the Reform Con
vention of 1838 ; and the other, tho "great
Union Meeting" in Philadelphia, in Decem
ber, 18G0. The first extracts given, are con
tained in the Reform Convention Debates,
Vol. 10, pages 16 to 24, and the latter in the
Clearfield Republican of July 8, 1563. We ask
a careful perusal of these documents, at this
time, as they clearly indicate the character of
the man. In 1838, a friend of humanity and
freedom, and in I860 the advocate of barbar
ity and oppression. Surely, such a man is
unworthy the couh'dence and votes of a free
people especially in times like these, when
our country needs the hearty support of fiim
and unwavering loyalty. " - ,
AT THEIR OLD TRICKS.
The Copperheads are at their old tricks.
No sooner is the Presidents Proclamation,an
nouncing the suspension of the habeas corpus
in certain cases, issued, than they raise tho
hue and cry that "martial late" is proclaimed.
This they know is false. But they presume
on the ignorance of their followers, and, no
doubt, in many instances they will be success
ful in making them believe that such is the
fact those persons not knowing the differ
ence between suspending tho operations of a
civil writ in individual offences, and the es
tablishing of military law over a section of the
country. Truly, these Copperheads have a
strange way of showing their loyalty to the
Constitution, and to their country's cause.
In the present contest, we hope no Union
man will feel satisfied that he is doing his
whole duty as a loyal and patriotic citizen,
without exerting himself to the full extent of
his ability to secure the re-election of Gov.
Curtin. Let each man work as if the success
of oar glorious cause depended upon his own
individuaT' efforts. : The hour for action has
arrived."" We trust all fully comprehend the
magnitude of the issue to be decided on tho
second Tuesday of October. ,

SUSPEKSIOir OF THE HABEAS CORPUS.
Br the President of the Uxited States,

case of rebellion or invasion the public safety
may require it ; and whereas a rebellion was

which rebellion is still existing ; and whereas,
by a statute which was appioved-on that day.it
was enacted by the Senate and House of Repre

the present insurrection the President ot the
United States, whenever in his judgment the
public safety may require, is authorized to
suspend the privilege f 1 the wi it of habeas cor
pus in any case throughout the United Stales
or any part thereof ; and whereas, in the judg
ment of the President of the United States,
the public safety does require the plivilege of
the said writ shall now be suspended through
out the United States, in the cases where, by
the authority of the Pre&ideui of the United
States, the military, navnl, and civil officers ot
the United States, or any of them, hold per
sons under their command XT in their custody
either as prisoners of war, spies, or aiders or
abbettors of the enemy, or officers, soldiers, or
seamen enrolled, drafted, or mustered or en
listed in, or belonging to the land or naval
forces of the United States, or as deserters
therefrom, or otherwise amenable to military
law or the rules and articles of war, or the
tules or regulations prescribed for the milita

dent of the United States, or for resisting a
draft, or for any other nttetice against the mil

Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, Presi

and make known to all whom it may concern,

and in conformity with the Constitution of the
United States and the laws of Congress in
such cases made and provided.
In testimony whereof, I hereunto set my
