*tribute to the Union candidate for
Governor such - as has rarely if ever
been awarded4o an Executive officer
in Pennsylvania. Some four months
ago, for reasons personal to himself,
to formally withdrew from the con
test; and we are well assured that
none regretted more then himself the
necessity, as, tmlooked for as it was
jmperative, that compelled him to be

_stands out in bold relief in the histo-

GLOOM IN fEBELDO33•
Never before in the history of the
war have the traitors of the South so
widely felt the utter hopelessness of
their lad cause as now. From one
end - Of the so-called Confederacy to
the other, there comes up a universal
wail of despondency, and the arch
fiend of the bloody drama pleads as if
in the midnight of despair to have
himself sustained still a little longer
in his career of crime. He has issued'
a long proclamation, in which he
whines piteously to his lesser com
rades in treason to rally to their shat
tereiT and despairing ranks, and com
plains that there is a want of alacrity
in, responding to the call for men.
He grants an t entire amnesty to all
deserters who: may return to the
ranks in twenty day's.
The Richmond papers are now dis
cussing, the probable fall of Charles
ton. They seem to have recognized
the hand-writing on the wall, and
most reluctantly are preparing to
give up the hot-bed of treason. The
En . quirer thinks that the loss of
Charleston "will be a fatal blow to
the Confederacy." So Jeff. Davis
said of Vicksburg some months ago,
and considering that several other
equally fatal blows have been dealt at
Helena, at Port Hudson, at Gettys
burg, at Tullahoma, &c., how many
lives has the bogus Confederacy ?
The truth is it has received its death
blow, and wants but a little laying
out and.a first-class funeral, and the
ebellion will be a matter of - history.
The Enquirer has a significant article
on "our domestic traitors"t—the men
Vallandigham didn't see when in the
South—and complains that men bold
ly demand peace and propose submis
sion. It says that what the South
wants is "the firm resolution to perish
rather than submit upon any terms
whatever." The Savannah Nelos is
alarmed about Georgia, and insists
that unless the people respond with
more heart to the all of the„ Confed
eracy, Georgia will soon be under
Ppleral I, Constitu
tionalist thir ,el armies
"may-be for and that
invasion wi] ' and rec
ommends the destruction of all. pro
visions which cannot' be removed.
The Mon to•omery Advertiser complains
that the Southern people have lost
their spirit, and asserts that their
companies for home defence, although
full on the -rolls, do not muster a
squad of men.- Pemberton's army,
paroled by" Grant, has pretty much
deserted, and the rebel papers are de
nouncing Pemberton relentlessly be
cause he opened the way for their
desertion. The Mobile . News says
that "Pemberton's army is dispersed
and the Texas and Alabama troops
have crossed, and the Mississippi riv
er is lost beyond recall : " A Memphis
dispatch says'that all the late rebel
papers "denounce the spirit' of the
people for crying for peace `and a re
turn to the Union." The Mobile
News says that the peoplo of East
Tennessee "have nothing to 'eat and
their sufferings in all other respects
are equally severe." Gen.- Lee pub
lishes an appeal to his deserters to
return and be, forgiven, and one of
the Southern papers exhorts the la
dies to discountenance every man
who is not in the army.
The Richmond Examiner seems to
regard the. destruction of the re el
armies as probable, and, is putting t
best possible face on that last extrem
ity. It says that if their " great ar
mies are destroyed" they will carry
on guerrilla warfare on land and on
sea t The Enquirer still cries for the
blood of Sawyer and Flynn, and de
nounces Davis' as cowardly for' not
promptly executing them. The Dis
patch says that " the capture of Ibr . -
gala's men is a, distressing bloWto the
COnfederacy, and denounces the raid
as " rash and fool-hardy." Indeed on
all hands, the tone of the rebel papers,
and of rebel officers in their procla
mations and orders, is that of utter
despair, and, however unwillingly
they virtually 'confess that the vital
power of the rebellion is broken. Let
Union men North stand shoulder, to
shoulder, and soon we shall again bless
the Union of our fathers, re-united Mid

PAYING TK PENALTY.
Gov. Seymour and his " friends,"
who enjoyed the luxuffree
robbing, burning,&c. for several day's
in_New York, have succeeded in sev
eral things, although`they did not quite
-stop 'the draft. They demonstrated
beyond all doubt that as long as mere
empty professions were required, Gov.
Seymour could be classed with the
qualified supporters, of the govern
matt ; but that as soon as he was call
ed upon to lend- a helping hand to
maintain' the supremacy of the laws,
and avert the ruthless butchery and
robbery of his own people, he was
ready to throw liis whole official pow
er against the Union cause. Had he
uniformly maintained that the sup
port of the law was the first duty of
the citizen, there' would have been no
riots in Nev York. It was his
well understood sympathy with the
lawless, that emboldened the thieves
and tunrderera of that city to array
themselves against the government,
in order to glut their infernal appe
tites without the fear of restraint.
Gov. Seymour deliberately chose his
position in the preinises, and the riot
vs exemplified its legitimate fruits ;
aid 'to-day over an hundred citizens
of New York fill untimely graves,
nearly two millions of damages must
be paid by the city, and the prisons
must be crowded with the victims of
Gov. Seymour's teachings.
The New York papers of Thursday
contain a large list of the claims and
claimants for damages suffered du
ring the riots. By the laws of New
York the municipality must compen
sate all citizens for hisses of property
destroyed by mobs; and the "friends"
of Gov. Seymour who were not in the
riots, together, with the 'supporters of
law and order, must alike be taxed
to remunerate the people , who were
the sufferers by the riots. Even the
negroes, who were • apparently the
special objects of the hatred and bru
tality of the . rioters, have their just
claims against the city, and a number
of lawyers, of the highest standing,
have voluntarily proposed to see that
they shall have ample justice in the
courts. Thus while the rioters ,may
be enjoying the rude music of the
shuttle, the lap-stone &c., at Sing-
Sing, the negroes will be receiving,at
the hands of the courts the restitution
due to _ them. Nearly ,tWo millions'
are already presented against the city
for damages, and the amount to be
paid can scarcely be less than that
sum when all the accounts are adju-'
dicated. Men are someti-es willing
to pay - dearly for amusements; but it,
is not likely that Gov. Seymour will
be expected by his "friends," outside
of scienced thieves; to repeat the en=-
tertainment this season s - even though
he could Present the play with ri7W
stars and improved scenery. The
millions, of money ; over an hundred
funerals; scores' `new inmates of
the penitentiary, with a, few capital
executions; not to 'speak of reputa
tion lost, ought to satisfy} any ordi
nary taste for the thrilling, at least
until the dog-star Ceases to reiin.
The courts of New York seem •to
consider Gov. Seymour's` "friends" as
outside of all 'regular meetings.-- : ,
Searcely have the riots ceased, until
retributive vengeance fills upon the
rioters. On Thursday last Theodore
Arnold was sentenced to the penitenl
tiary for five years; Wm : Watson for
ten years ; Michael , Doyle and Sohn
Connay for, fifteen years, and scores
will shortly follow them. Besides
these, there are a number of the lead
ers incarcerated in jail awaiting their
trial for murder, and' many will
convicted and sentenced
ich is, the fate 'of the
ments who obeyed the
traitors high f in author
ity. Where are the master-hands
who touched the rude chords. and
flung them upon society a horde of
lawless men ? Perhaps Gov. Seymour
may had the silent but terrible - appeal
to his conscience, when he is called
upon to give his official signature to
the death warrants of the men he has,
more than any other human power,
directed to disorder And death.
The rebels i have ever looked with a
longing heart upon Kentucky, and
have made some most desperate
struggles to receive it in the deadly
embrace of secession. Breekinridge,

Since then , Kentucky has vibrated
like the unsettled needle, because of
faithlesS or timidfUnion men who at
tempted to lead her lobsely in the
rear-guard of the Union cause; but
whenever the ballot-box could utter
the ' sentiments of her sons, ,they
have declared for the Union without
condition 'or 'qualification. So they
did - two years ago; again a year ago,
and,now they have chosen a straight
out ;Union Governor fbr four years,.
by: some 30,000 majority, and every
member of Congress is. squarely for
the government, and implacably
against treason, whether in armed
traitors or in Northern sympathizers.
Thus progresses the good cause in
.the South t while petty and treacher
ous politicians, North are seeking to'
array the great loyal States against
the administration and the govern
ment. Kentucky, with her Slavery,
declares in thunder-tones for the un
conditional restoration of the Union;
for a vigorous prosecution of the war;
for the employment of •every means
to suppress the rebellion, and for the
enforcement of the laws and policy of I
the government. Such is the position`''
of Slave Kentucky.
