The Patriotism of the Presbytery of Har
risburg. The following paper, writ ten by the Rev.
Robinson, of lfarrisburgwtus unanimously a
tlopted by the Presbytery of Harrisourg, at
its recent meeting Carlisle. The paper
breathes the true spirit of Christianity and
patriotism, and is another evidence of the
devotiou of the Presbyterian ministry to the
cau.e of the country :
"Called once again, in the providence of
God, to convene while the civil war, caused
by an unholy rebellion, is stil raging in our
beloved country, this Presbytery deems it to
be eminently proper to renew the expression
of its .sentiments in regard to matters that
vitally afi'ect the interests of government,
liberty and religion, put in peril by the con
spirators against our national Union.
And that we may not be misunderstood,
nor our question be in manner equivocal,
we do hereby solemnly reaffirm the testimo
ny we have given ou former occasions, so far
as itbears upon the wk-kedness of the rebel
lion, in its inception, in its continuance and
in its objects, and upon the duty of all citi
zens to sustain the government of the coun
try by every means in their power, till the
rebellion be utterly suppressed. This duty
of unconditional, unreserved loyalty to the
constitutionally elected government of the
nation, we desire distinctly to reaffirm as a
principle of our holy religion and a part of
our allegiance to God.
We desire furter to put upon record that
three years of terrible strife and suffering in
tne destruction or propperty,tbe loss ot life,
the sorrows, the desolations, and the sad
moral influences of the war, have in no de
gree altered our conviction that, our duty to
our country, to posterity and to God demands
that we count the-e sacrifices cheap to gain
the great end of exterminating treason, pre
serving the supremacy of law and saving the
country from anarchy and ruin ; but .on the
other hand have greatiydeepened our abhor
rence of the principles, the spirit and tha
conduct of the leaders of the rebellion, and
of" all who by word or Vjed or by silence
show any sympathy for them or for their
And rising above the transient passions
and political excitements of the day to those
large interests of human lilierty, we return
thanksgiving to God that through his migh
ty providence that system of human bon
dage which is the root of the whole irfsur
roeiionary movement and whose permanence
was the avowed object ot its leaders, is mel
ting away that by the powerful hand of
war, by the action of disenthralled States
and our National Legislature, we hope soon
to see the last vestiges of the irreat iniouitv
removed from the countrv.
We would also exhort our brethren every-
where ana an wno love our common coun
try to rebuke and oppose this spirit of dis
loyalty, to speak words of truth and sober-
T It 1 A
ness, to discountenance ail lovers ot sym
pathy with treason to give a cordial sup
port to all who are entrusted with civil or
military authority to pray for our rulers,
and the officers and men of our army and

and charities to those who toil or suffer for !
us in this war to stand by the country,
patient, unconquerable, hopefully waiting
on God, till he gives to a disciplined, purifi
ed and re-cemented nation a peace based on ;
principles of everlasting righteousness. j
We would also express the gratification we '
have felt to-day in being permitted to visit j
the U. S. Barracks near this town ; to re
ceive the attentions of the commandant andv
the worthy chaplain of the post to speak ,
woods of svmpathv to the soldiers and to '
see the flag of our country waving over the
ruins caused by the soldiers of treason.
A "Secret" in Potato Planting.
, An old farmer, who is sixty-three years of
age, and boasts that he, has never yet had
potatoes rot in the ground, gives the follow
ing lor the benefit of the public :
1 plant my potatoes in the latter part of
April or the first of May, and in the old of
the moon. , When they got up six inches
high, I plaster and drass them up nicely.
2s'ow for a secret. When the sets show for
blossoming, then is the time to take two
parts plaster and one part fine .salt ; mix
well together, and put one large spoonful of
this compound on each hill ; drop it as near
the center of the hill a possible. Just as
soon as the potatoes are ripe, take them out
of the ground ; have them perfectly dry
when put iD the cellar, and keep them in a
dry cool place. Some farmers let their po
tatoes remain on the ground, soaking through
all the cold fall rains, until the snow; flies.
The potatoes become diseased in this way
more and more every year ; hence the pota
to rot. Writh such management they should
rot. . . ;
It is said that when Com. Vanderbilt was
in nnnfriKn t.- tlia Von VnrkSaUlta-
ry Fair, he said he would give what A. T. The Petersburg Express of the 22d, says
Stewart did. Stewart wrote his check for that an order'has been given for the remov
$100,000, and Vanderbilt immediately cov- al of the first Auditor s bureau to Mont
ered il witka check of his own for a like a-1 gpmery, Ala. . This indicates that the reb
mount , , - ' ' ' r t " els are preparing to leave. .
How the States now out of the Union, or
claiming to be out of the Union, are to get
back, it may not, speaking after the manner
of philosophical statesmen, be very easy to
uii uiiui; , uui now me civilization, the
very air and soil and social structure of the
insurgent States are to be re-constructed, it
is exceedingly easy to see and determine.
The method is before us. Seeing is the na-
No one who has reached the roots of the
Slaveholder's rebellion can fail to perceive
win, mcy are meniicai wun tne roots ot the
blaveholder's civilization. The Slavehold
er s hands performed out of the abundance
of the slaveholder's heart. W hat he had
long dreamed ot he finally dared to under
take, lie was a branded aristocrat Th
cud of his civilization was to make his slave
a menial, himself an aristocrat, and his poor
wane neignuor a vagabond. Un the bond
age ot the black, and the ignorance of the
poor white, the slaveholder built himself,
ms ample lands, princely habitation and lux
urious ease. Idleness reigned over what
luxury skipped. JManual toil was given ex
clusively to servile hands. What they could
not do must be left undone. Labor went
under the ban ; land to waste ; men to de
cay. Opulence and station were the privi
lege of the few. The remainder were black
slaves and white vagrants. The palace on
the highway, surrounded bv the 7iuarters"
and the interminable, ill-tilled acres, was as
terrible as an army with banners to the clus
ter of rude huts, deep in the pine forest.
The sullen inhabitants of the huts stood in
as servile awe of the magnificat mansion as
did the vanagated occupants of the quar
ters." If not this war. then, certainly.
what shall follow this war, will bring these
deluded "princes" to repentance and re
form. The war has its bad aspects, but at
the same time it has its good ones. ' -Without
it, the slave civilization might have
made a long fight yet with the civilization
of free labor and free lips ; but icith it, the
competition will le brought to a speedy and
successful termination. The sword of the
"Yankee" will raise, the ploughshare of the
1 ankee will re-construct. Whatever of
fresh ideas his bayonet may insert, the rinir
ing hammer of his steady right arm will ef
fectually and eternally drive home. Id
short, the advent of a few thousand North
ern mechanics and tradesmen in an interior
part of the rebellious region, is at once the
augury and commencement of that sort o:
"re-construction" which must underlie ev
ery other, and upon which must be found
ed all oar hopes of an endurirnr Union, a
healthful peace and untrammeled trial of a
purely Republican structure a structure
With slavery stricken out and with Freedom
inscribed upon its cap-stone. tne Gazette.
"Won't be Transferred.
The Crist'., Sam Medary's paper, pub
lished at Columbus, Ohio, has the following
remark, touching the of action of the State
Copperhead Convention :
"There can be no doubt the fact that, any
attempt to trantjrr the Democratic parti
on to a war platform will be resisted w
'more determination than some men, who
"would sell the co"untrv for an office, sun
" pose. They want neither Lincoln nor anvnf
' his Major Generals. The strength, and the
only strength- ot the Democratic party
to last, from first has been opposition to
thistcflrr unholy, barbarous and ruinous.
The above iseopperheadism. pure and un
adulterated, ot the allandiebam, Lone,
Harris, Wood, and Vorhees school. Oppo
sition to the war is its motto, and to de
nounce it as unholy, barbarous and Unjust
on the part ot the Union, in the face ot the
infamous atrocities practiced in the prison-
houses at liichmond, and the savage massa
cre neruetrated bv the reikis at Fort Pillow.
is the work of these sympathizers with trea
son and enemies of their County. Peace is
their cry and their platform peace at any
price peace on any terms which the rebels
may impose. The allusion to Lincoln and
his major generals is no doubt, a fling at
McClellan, though win tire Peace Party at
any price should object to him as a candi
date we cannot conceive. He never did the
rebels any harm. He ruined the noblest
army ever before that time organized in the
countrj, by exposing it to disease and death
in the swamps of the Chickahominy, and
permitting it to be cut up and defeated in
detail by the insurgents thus saving Rich
mond for them,, which, had he managed
rightly, must inevitably have fallen then in
to our hands, for Jeff. Davis had already
sent off his family and packed up his trunk
to follow. His policy and thatof his faction
in the army led to the defeat of Pope, and
the driving of our troops into the defences
of Washington, and laid open Maryland to
invasion, where the drawn battle of Antie
tam, claimed as his victory, was so fruitless
of results, that Lee marched off without
hinderance or impediment. We know,
therefore, of no better candidate for an ultra
peace party than McClellan, and think that
Sam Medary and his Crisis are very foolish
to object to him. f
The St. Louis Presbytery has declared the
rebellion a sin against God, equalled only by
Adam's fall, Absalom's rebellion against his
father, and the crucifixion of Christ
A law has been passed by the Maryla nd
Legislature to tax ' batchelors above twenty
years of age twenty dollars, and those above
forty-five years of age forty dollars. . ,
The people of western North Carolina are
reported to haverecently hung several reb

A Word to the People.
Until the war is over and the , rebellion
put down, our people must make up their
minds to pay high prices for goods, as well
as high taxes upon their property. The
immense expenditures necessary in modern
warfare must disturb . the commercial bal
ance. We cannot expect everything to run
on as Emoothly as if we had no rebellion in
the country. High taxes ; we must pay' to
maintain our armies in the field, and to sus
tain the credit of the Government. ' With
out a large income raised by taxation, the
national currency must depreciate, and pri
ces will bound up higher and higher. Our
principal hope of safety now lies in heavy
taxation. The Government cannot borrow
forever unless there is provision made for
paying interest and principal Our public
income and tariff and taxation is not enough
to meet the emergency. Congress must lay
on the burden, and the people must carry it
for their own good. It is better to pay . a
high tax and support our financial system,
than to pay nothing and let ourtreasury fall
into bankruptcy. Besides, hundreds of thou
sands of our fellow citizens are on the battle
field, offering everything, even to their very
lives, for the cause of the country. We are
asked only to pay a portion of our substance.
We risk no limbs nor lives in staying at
home employed in our usual vocations. For
the public good and our own good, we are
called on to pay for the work that others
are doing. It will cost ns some economy and
self-denial, but nothing compared with what
the soldiers experience every, day. We
must stop our indulgence in costly foreign
luxuries, and live in a manner to suit the
times. Money is abundant among "us, but
it should not therefore be wasted. ' First
provide a decent subsistence for yourselves
and families ; then give what yon can afford
to the Aid Societies and the Sanitary Fairs,
and invest the surplus in the public loans.
the best securities in the world. Pay your
taxes cheerfully and freely, and be satisfied
that every act of your hand is for the free
dom, happinessjand unity of your country.

Liquors, it will be seen, predominate itn
mensely. It is into this vortex that mil
lions go, loth for the domestic and foreign
brands. Those who will have these and
other luxuries, should be made to pay the
highest doty. It would in the end, howev
er, be better lor the country and mankind,
to sink altogether the idea of revenue from
liquors, and levy duties absolutely prohibi
tory. - . '
Congress cannot too soon apply itself earn
estly to a complete revision ot the tariff.
The country needs to be saved from its own
tollies as evinced in the extent and charac
ter of importations, while, as'a general prin
ciple, we need a tann adjustment that will
give us the largest amount of revenue.
There are conclusive reasons in favor of ab
solute prohibition for the Fake of those
branches of manufactures that are to be
heavily taxed and as a necessary means of
administering a wholesome check to extrav
agance and its consequences.' There is no
hope of gold cheapening while excessive im
portation troes on. Unless it is checked the
drain will be constant and permanent This
can be done in no other way than by the im
position of duties with a heavy hand and a
bold determination to rescue the country
from its own follies, and to protect its va
ried interests. . .

them are persons who left their home for
the purpose of avoiding enrollment and the

CORRESPONDENCE OP THE JOURNAL?
Letter from the. Potomac Anaj. .. 7
Camp or 149th: Penx'a VolcnteeHs,
Culpepper, Va. April 19, 1764 - j "
Friend Row: Your welcome paper
(the Journal, ) reaches us almost weekly,. .
and it does a patriotic soldier good to peruse .
it ; but, at the same time vexes us serious-T '
ly to read the extracts taken from that other' ;
sheet, The ClearfieldRepublican I bar !!
often wished to see : that paper myself to 1 .
hear.or Tather to see the venom the 4f6naikV ' ? .
are in the habit of putting ' forth," and this '
evening I have. the. pleasure of having my :
curiosity satisfied,' in this' respect, asLoQWi ;
have that vile sheet before me. ! - In it I find v
a letter written by t. a member of ; this regi-t
ment, (or at least it bears the signature of a '
pretended soldier,) in' .which he seems to '
think that the Government is not rightly
administered ', and his remarks generally,
are a tirade upon his Government and its-,
policies. Now, this same soldier has been '
corresponding with the . "Republican".' for
some time, as I have been informed by par -ties
at home. We know him so well here :
that we do not regard him, but, for the in
formation of those who do not know his do
ings as well as we do, I will briefly give yoa
a portion of his military history'" '''
In his last letter he wishes it kept in
mind, that he came . here 'to protect the '
whole people" in their rights. If that is ,.
what brought him into the service, he has'
a strange way of doing his duty, " as a soR
dier, in that respect Since we left the city
of Vashington, it is not known that he has
proved himself a soldier of great valor, or
that he has performed anv verV illustrious !
deeds. - During last summer's campaign he'
was cook in the hospital, (knowing, no donbt,'
that hospitals are generally out of danger, ) '
or thinking, perhaps, that ' he could snow .
his pre-eminent courage best iii that.capaci- '
ty. And, I do not remember of hearing any
one say that he was at, : or near Gettysburg
until the 6th of J uly, 1 863, (three days af .
ter the battle,) when, I understand, he via- ,
ited the hospitals from the wagon train. '. '
The next we hear of this valiant soldier
is, that he is in Clearfield ; county making
speeches for Woodward, thinkipg, po donbt,
if the Honorable Judge should be elected
he would have a better show for i position
in the army than he had when the company ;
to which he belongs was organized. ) The
Joor fellow was doomed to disappointment,
owever.' . Curtin' was the people's choice,
and he - was obliged to return here withojut
seeing his darling Woodward elected. Thaa, -disappointed,
dejected, and chop-fallen this ,
valiant soldier returns- to his regiment and
immediately enters. he 'Regimental Pior,
neer Corps" (oras we call it,."The Regimen-,,
tallnvabd Corps") as washer-woman for.,
the regiment, in which capacity he has beep,
serving his countrj', and the whole pebble,
for the last six months-oing no other du
ty whatever," and regularly drawing his pay
and rations, (making at least $1.00 per clay
extraf and grumbling at the government.- J''
- The only wrong that I can see in the Gov
ernment is, that 'this1 brave (?) fellow is not
compelled to do the' same' amount of duty
that other and better men are doing. But
alas ! the '"Carr" is on the back track and
getting farther down the grade yet he de
serves nothing - better-r-which, : J think, is
the only thing that raises his ire against the
Government . Let him rail away.. Hisin-
tluence can do but Jitue harm.
As the evening has passed and my fire died
it, I will have to turn into the . Wagon!
How Garibaldi Looks".' ...
An English paper gives the fbllowinc de
scription of Gen. Garibaldi's appearance, at
first sight, on board the steamship that had
conveyed him to England : . ; , , (
Leaning on his walking stick, and hmninr
slightly, he proceeds, accompanied by' au of
us, to the cushioned 6eat at the end of the
saloon. In truth a kingly ' looking mani
some five feet eight inches in height,' he ' is
broadly built, and hi3 presence is: pre-emi-'
nently commanding-r he" has a : broad inrl
lofty brow.soft and gentle eyes, which spark

wen-shaped nose, a massive jaw,- indicative
of power, and a smile which a woman might
envy. ' lie wore; light and thin trowsers,
smartly made, pateut leather boots, a silver
grey gabardiue with a scarlet lining or hood,
and an enbordered smooking cap, which
looked as if it had been worked by some fair
admirer. A black silk handkerchief round
his neck of course no collar and. a light
crimson bandanna thrown 'loosely orertha
shoulders,' completed a costume which, for
pictoresqueness, it would be difficult to e
