has been unusually - , severe for outpost,

a part of Sedgwick's corps - engaged
Lee's extreme right under Longstreet,

tforts on both sides to feel thepositions
therespective forces. The decisive
',T-bititie has yet to be fought, and it
' ;'promises `to be' deadly and desierete
' beyond precedent in the war. Lee
fights, from necessity, not choice. Like
stag atrbay, he turns upon. his pur
;seer, bemuse the ting'y waters of the
Potomac forbid his escape, and
remnant of his shattered army : must
fight for existence. That they will
to'so, and with the energy of despair

-though it be behind monuments of.
' their dead, we cannot doubt.

The supremacy of law - is the( only'',
safety of the citizen, and we cinnot,
especially at this time, inculcate the.
sanctity of civil and social order with
too much earnestness. One of the in
evitable results of -fraternal' war; in
all 'agcs, ha's been a tendency to raw
lessness; a disregard, of constituted
authorities a contempt of rulers 4
and. unless arrested by the. power of
the govetrnent, has ever ;resulted in
anarchy... -
It is not to be disguised that the
evil fruits of lawless teachings have
- been manifested in the,,Noi-th. For
More than a year past, with a consid
erable portion 'of reckless political
Waders, thesafety of the - Republic has
been subordinated to the hope of petty
party triumphs; and.the government
has been assailed at everypoint while:
engaged in a deaths-truggle for exist
ence. Every measure adopted for the
suppression' of murderous treason has
been perverted and. condemned, and
'even the solemn enactments of our
highest legislative tribunals have been
denounced to the very verge of resist
ance., Efforts of the government to
save our heroic brethren in the field
by sWelling their numbers have been
,met by resistance to the draft or in
sidious or open hostility to enlist
ments; and the purpose of the ad
ministration in the prosecution o£ the
war has been unscrupulously falsified,
and declared as meriting the scorn
and contempt .;of the citizens, rather
than their earnest and' cordial co.ope
ration'. This is lawlessness ,in spirit
under every guise, and often so in
fact; and it' is not surprising that it
has' inforced a lawless tendency look
ing to retaliation. ,
. Especially would we warn Union
men a g ainst this insidious, this
evil. We who sustain the govern
ment in sacred work of preserving
the institutions of Our. fathers, do so
in the name of the law; and we ap
peal to its paramount claims , upon
every citizen, when we ask all,menin
the North .to join in preserying the
life or the Republic. Nye call for men
of every persuasion to fill the ranks
of our volunteers and conscripts; and
we do so because it is a just and law
ful duty.. Those who share our polit
ical faith' have control of the different
branches of the- government; 'lave
made our, laws lboking to the pfose
*ion of, the war . have determined
the particular line •of policy to be
adhered to in our holy effort to pre
serve the Union - of the State's; and
howiever men may differ as to partic
ular measures or as to". the "policy- of
the administration, we expect obedi
ence from all men, in the war policy
and efforts of the gove l rnment, not
only because Patriotism would so dic
tate; but Nye expect it-yea, we en
force. it, because the lard demands it at
their hand. • '
The crowning object of this war is
to establish for ourselves and for those
who shall.come after us; the sanctity
of government, the immutability- of
law; and in noway;canthe cause4f

The Union State Convention, called
originally to meet at Pittsburg„ori the,
2d of July; waia postperied to the sth
of August, in consequence of the rebel,
invasion. The Union CoMinittee re-'
cognized the fitness of postponing
all" political movements, while there
should be a foe upon loyal soil, and
thereby - relieved many'delegates to the
Convention who are nowin the ranks
to defend the border.
—The -names of quite a number 'of;
able and meritorious men, has been
suggested for the Union nomination
for Governor. Messrs. Sohn Covode,
of Westmoreland; J.l P. Peuily,and J.
K. Morehead, of Alegheny; W: W.
Ketchum; of Luzerne; Jas. IL Camp
bell, of Pottsville; M. M'Michael and
John C. Knox, of Philadelphia; Jas.
L. Reynolds, of Lancaster; Heister
Mu en i erg, "of Bells; F. Jordan, of
Be. ford, and probably others whose
na tt es we do not now recall, have been
advocated by their respective friends;
bht the Manifest unwillingness . of the
party to. relieve Gov. Comm from a
re-nomination bas deprived the strug

- - - - -
Rarely. in the history of politics in
this State has therAeen. such a spon
taneous expression of preference for a
candidate as has been exhibited in-the
demand for Gov, CURTIN'S re-nomin
ation: We have I.eason to know that
he earnestly desired to be allowedlo
retire at the close of his present term
to rest from the herculean labors im
posed upon him by the war, and to
recruit his exhausted health. . In fact
his declination was regarded by
self. and personal friends as an imper
ative physical necessity, and it was
made in the best offaith, andwe doubt
not that to this day Gov. CuarlN de
sires nothing so muck,. as that his
party may accept it. But in the face
of - the formal announcement of his
wish and purpose to retire, half , the
delegates have been positively in
structed to demand his acceptance of
the responsible trust, and with those
previously chosen, _ fully . two-thirds
of the Convention will insist 'upon
making him the Union standardibear
er in the coming contest. His match
less fidelity 'to his great. ;State'; his
ceaseless devotion An our,. brave- sol
diers in the ;field; hiS earnest care for
our wounded, and heroic, dead, and the,
high measure' of ability he ,lias dis-,
played and the success achieicd in his
administration of the government
generally, have endured him, to the
people of Pennsylvania, to an extent.
that is measured IT no party
and against whiCh the fiercest politieal
malice must ; hurl its weapons harm
lessly. His' re:nomination, therefore,
may be regarded' as 'settled; and
reluctant, Gov. Cunrth cannot
decline it. - ;.
The nomination for Supreme Judge
will probably be tendered to the West,
and if so, ',Judge AGNEW ) of: Beaver,
will'doubtless be choSen,.' Re

THE quota of troops called for from
Franklin county by the Proclamation
of the. Governor, to aid in, the protee,-'
tion orthe State is 840, and it is due
to the cause and to ourselves that our
full number be contributed proraptly
to the common defence. At least one
Artillery , company and several Cavalry
companies should be organized, so that
we should have artillery, and scouts
trained and ready to respond at 'a
moment's call in any future emergency.
We know how sadly our people have
suffered, and that the phindering of
our stock and driving away of hun
dreds of ne,gro laborersi have render
ed it next-to impossible to spare many
- men from our fielda; but the future
safety of the border demands that we
should respond with our full .quota,

A. H. STEVENS, the Vice President
of the bogus Confederacy, came down
the James River last week and-Sent a
letter to Admiral Lee asking permis
sion to go to Washington to deliver a
message from Jeff Davis and person
ally confer with President Lincoln on
the subject to which it referred. Ad
miral,Lee referred the letter to the
President who declined the interview,
adding that the customary, agents
and channels were adequate for all,
necessary communication. The con
tents Of Davis's•niessage to the Presi
dent are, not known ; butit is pore
than probable that Stevens - believed
Lee's invasion to be successful, and he
hoped to find Lincoln prepared_ to kn
tertain some propositions for pedee
upon the basis of separation rather
than have Lee thunder at his capital.
