Several leading journals hive persisted in defining a Spring campaign. for• Gen. Lee, involving the early invasion of Penn- sylvania, and a simultaneous movement by Johnston into KentuCky and Ohio. We' (145 not share the apprehension that the rebels will-take the offensive with the ' view of tmnsfering the war to Northern soil. Doubtlelas Gen'. Lee would be glad to do so,' and could such a movenieut reasonably promise success, , lt would he attempted; but the sad experience the rebels have had during two invasions of the North, will not incline a soldier like l e ee to repeat so perilous an enterprise, unless it can be done under circumstances nmeh more fityorable than have ever yet presented. • Gen. Lee's first ,offensive movement was made just after he had driven Gem ' - M'Clell4 , haek upon the James River; raised the siege of Richmond, and.subse quentry defeated Gen. Pope, driving the Union army into the entrenchments of Washington. The Army of the Potomac had been fearfully decimated by-battles and disease on the Peninsula was sadly dispirited by defeat both under M'Clellan and Pope, and was demoralized-alike by disinter and incompetent and unfaithful commanders. Thu •Thus wasted and disor ganized, Gen. Lee, with an army flushed with victory, boldly ,crossed the Potomac and aimed to revolutionize Maryland. But gently! as he wooed "My Maryland" to the embrace of the Despotism of Treason; he was confounded at the ob atinancy with which the people of that State, even in those dark days cf the maintained their fidelity to their Nationality. Defeated at South Moun tain and terribly shattered at Antietam in a bloOdy drawn battle, he was glad to retrace his steps and, lodge his legions of crime safely again Upon the soil of Vir ginia. That invasion was barren of all save the' . thOusands of dead - and wounded he left behind him, to find sep ulchres orlministers' of mercy among their foes. The disastrous fields of Fredericksburg and Chancelkirsville, next crimsoned the pages of our - history, and the Spriiig of 1863 saw Treason strengthened by , tri 7 nmphs in almost every section of the Union. The Iron-clads had•been repuls ed at Charleston; Grant had reeled back in bloody failure from his assaults upon Vicksburg ; Banks had Vainly attempted o storm Port Hudson with terrible loss; several of our best Iron-clads had been captured by the rebels on the Mississippi; and at all points the hearts of traitors were cheered in their unholy work. In addi . tion to this painful record which chilled the hopes. of the loyal army and loyal, men, fully one-third of the troops in the Army of the Potoma . c were discharged soon after the defeat at Cluincellorsville —their terrhs of service having expired The Union army was weaker at that time. • by many thousands than it had been at any period since its organization in 1861; and the triumph of the Democracy in the ; leading States of, the North electing Peace Executives i Newvi York, New Jer- Aey, and like legislatures and Congress ' • lonia delegations in Pennsylvania,Thiliana and Illinoie---pointed the rebel chief with,: • tempting distinctness, the way to Peace arid Dismeniberment through rebel vic tories and Copperhead revos upm - z - a - r‘ :Northern soil. Tlins-i vitecl by the suC eessiVe defe and serious depletion of ", and by the power attained by lathising friends in the loyal State's, Lee again turned toward the North Star, defiant in his consciousness of • strength. His legions .were mightier than ever be- our fore, and the teeming wealth of our gar , sera - and stores made his march a merry • one to the rich harvest of death, At Get- Isburg he met the shattered remains of :the Army of the Potomac—weary and 5 foot-sore from forced marches, andscarce- iy. knowing who commanded them ;- but they realized that by their heroism and by their baptism in their own blood, alone could a State said Nation be delivered foam [the radaless det3poiler, and they dos ' a he: histeiy of the setend invasion by Burg the invader and his defiant hosts back upon the Potomac, with, half his warriors billed, wounded or desertetf. Glad again was the rebel chief to find his broken columns upon:the soil of Virginia; and his dead were left for burial and his wounded for mercy, in the hands of the people whose land he sought to desolate. Since then the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia have not met in battle.. Each has sent its gifts •to the South-west, and each has shared in iriumplis on the historic soil of East Tennessee. Longstreet brought victory to Bragg; Hooker wrested it. from him in his terrible 'charge above the clouds on Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge; and the ca t mpaitTn closed with the signal discomfiture of treason. Now the - victor of, the Mississippi and of Chattanooga 1 confronts the victor of Fredericksburg and of Chancellorsville—the two most successful, honored and trusted chieftains, and the best armies of the Continent, are face to face. As yet the rebel leader is at Orange Court House and covers his capital, with a command in all not ex ceeding 120,000, not one-half of whom could be made effective upon a field in an offensive campaign, . He is outnumbered by Gen. Grant fully 100,000 men ; and Were he to leave his defensive position for an aggresOve movement, his army and capital would both be madly periled: He could not reach the soil of Pennsyl vania unless by consent of General Grant, without first defeating an army equal to his own in bravery and , surpaSsing it largely in positive strength. Even give him Longstreet with his command, which would end the possibibility of offensive rebel movements in Tennessee, and he would be unequal to the task of transfer ring the war to the Northern States. Ilior would the defeat of the Union army iu a pitched battle in Virginia make invasion, a wise campaign, for our shortened lines would again' oppose him with increased numbers and desperation. Looking at the positions and' relative strength of the opposing armies, we can - not regard the invasion of -the North as any part of Gen. Lee's plan for the Spring campaign. If in this we err, it must be because Gen: Lee and the rebel cause are much weaker and nettrer the verge r of des pair than we- have supposed. Nothing but the deiperation of death itself could ,hurl the army o f traitors Northward again, when the Union ranks are filled with brave defenders of our country's cause, and their hearts abounding With .hype of early and decisive triumph. For this Gen. Lee is not prepared. He will not hazard all in hopeless mockery of experi ence and reason; but lie will rather await ! the •shock that is gathering over him, and i yi e ld the prize of desolated- Virginia, already crowded with hecatombs of dead, only when his sword becomes' powerless to defend it: -If discomfited--as we trust he shall be—it will be upon the fields of Virginia, were his capital, his honor and his kindred inspire him to heroism, and where, with his defeat, will expire the last hope of murderous usurpation.' THE MUTATIONS OF POLITICS. The apportionment of the State- into legislative districts, with the manifest 'View of making the Union strength of the St4te most available in maintaining leg islative ascendancy, recalls to us the sin gular political mutations exhibited in the last ten years. Taking the vote for Gov ernor in 1863, with the meagre majority Of 15,000,in a poll of Over half a 'million, the apportionment likely to be enacted would give the .Demoerats about one-third of the Senators; but the histOry , of appor tionments and the "glorious uricettainty of elections," defy the most judicious cal culations as to political results. The revolution of 1854 severed the North from the Democracy, and it has since been most faithful in its adhesion to Freedom; but beyond that immediate section of the State, the people have cut all manner of fantastic tricks politically, i Philadelphia is now, relied -upon_ to furnish 'three Union Senators and not less than twelve mem bers,—yet no later than 1858 the delega: den from that city was unanimously Deni-„ ocratic in both branches. Chester apit Delaware are to furnish one Union Sena tor' f course, and make Montgomery con tribute another,—yet in 1857 Chester and Delaware elected a Democratic Senator and four Representatives, while Mont gomery chose aßepublican in 1858. Bucks is now conceded to the Democrats in-the Senatorial calculations ; but' it - has had trati=Democr — fia c Senators fully half the time during the last fifteen yearsrandhas chosen Assemblymen with equal impar tiality; in 1858-9 and 60, electing Repub lican members. Lancaster has had Dem ocratic Representatives . at least twice du ring the last ten years, and has been twice earnestly contested for Congress.. York elected a Whig Senator in 1846 ; defeated Democratic Representatives in 1854 and twice or thrice during the last legislative apportionment—varyingfrom3,ooo Dem ocratic to several hundred the other way. Dauphin had Democratic Representatives in 1858 and 1861, and would have made a Democratic Senator in 1.857 but for Le banon giving 'BOO for Rutherford—elect ing him by twelve. Cumberland gavel ,200 against Bonham ten yeats ago,. and elb.ct• extAineriata members, and has defeated AEI* Srcitiktift Utpo:sitotN Iptit 13, 18H., Democratic members three tildes in the last seven years. Every county South of the Susquehanna had Democratic mem bers in 1858, excepting one only in Frank lin; and the same year Somerset, Hunting don and Blair each contribUted one to the two-thirds-Democratic vote in the House. Cambria elected Republican members, three times 'out of the last seven; Arm strong, Westmoreland and Fayettd have tWiee or thrice done likewisein'the same period, - and Westmoreland and Fayette elected Republican Senators in 1854 and in 1860. - Greene has had anti-Democratic Senators twice in ten years-41enniken in 1854 and Lawrence 1860-L.-and Wash ington has gone 500 either wayin the same time. Allegheny had two Democratic Senators in 1856, and in. 1855-7 sent solid Democratic delegationato the House.— Eric had Democratic Members twice with in ten years, and Clearfield, Elk, &c., have hada Republican Senator and mem bers three years since 1855; Lycoming has rotated from 500 . Republican to 1200 Democratic within ;several years; and Centre has given 800 both ways since the last apportionment. Northumherlandhas voted 1,000 for both tickets Since 1854; and with Columbia, Montour and Snyder elected a Republican. Senator -in 18601 Schuylkill has given 1,000 Republican and 2,500 Democratic within fotir•years, and has defeated Democratic. legislative can didates about one-third of the time during fifteen years past. Berkshas been deba table several times within our recollection, —had anti-Democratic members in 1855 and defeated Democratic candidates for Congress in 1858 and 1859.' Lehigh and, Northainpton, had a Whig Senator from 1847 to '5O ; Lehigh and Carbon have twi t ed, had Republican members slince 1858, and Lehigh has chosen anti-Democratic Congressmen several times since the pre sent issuea have agitated the people. Lu zerne was Republican nearly half the time during the last legislative apportionment, and with the intensely Democratic coun ties of - Columbia and Montour, elected Metier 'once and Fuller and Scranton each twice to Congress since 1846. Brit a little more thin one year ago, the Franklin, Adams, Fultdn, Bedford and Someiset district elected a Demo cratic Congressman—defeating a strong and efficient Representative who - had twice carried the district with Juniata in place of Somerset. The Dauphin, Juniata, Union, Snyder and Northamberland dis trict also elected a Democrat, in the face of 1,000 majority that ought to be. Hon. J: H. Campbell, who had three times been chosen in Schuylkill and Northum berland, was defeated with, his district improved over 1500 by the exchange of Lebanon for Northumberland; and GroW was defeated 2,000115 Idzerne.with over 1200 majority in Susquehanna, although Luzerrie had gone Republican three years out of the previous four. Indiana was also overborne for Congress in 1862 by counties-which have voted with her more than half the time since,lBsB, sand so with Lawrence, in the face of nearly 2,000 given by each to their favorite candidates. And the general results in the State have been equally conflicting. In 1853 the petite crats carried it by nearly 40,000, and in 1854 Gov. Pollock had 40,000 Over Bigler, while Mott, Democrat had over 190,000 Over Darsie. In_ 1857 Packer defeated Wilmot by 38,000; 'in 1858.-9 the Repub licans carried'the State by decisive ma jorities which culminated in 32,000 for Curtin and 60,000 for LincolniitlB6o. 'ln 1861-2 the State'was carried by the Dem ocrats on the popular - vote,' and in 1863, the heaviest. ote ever polled, with over 50,000 disfranchised in the, army. gave Curtin 15,000—thus barely; saving the Country's 'cause at a periodihen disaster would have been a fearful if not a fatal disaster to our Nationality. ".1: : r —Such are the mutations of political history in this State; -and if there is any man shrewd enough to Make an af)pot tionment, based upon the experience of the past, that will _promise Union supre macy in the legislature 'for_ seven years to come; his laurels will be of the rarest 'order. LEGISLATION-OUR FINANCES. The Senate has fixed the 28th inst. for the final adjournment of the legislature, and our ads-ices indicate, that the House will concur. If so but two weeks - remain for the passage of all the iinportant pub lic bills, not one of which has reached even to second reading in either branch. The apportionment bill, the appropria tion bill, the militia bill,andthe tax bill, have been reported br , then\ respective committees—nothing more ; and to as sume that all these, with theflqod of local legislation that ever will be ,acconunoda tedifean be judiciously disposed of in two weeks' time; is to, concede a degree' of wisdom, industry and skill to the present legislature hitherto unkhasin in similar bodies, and to which it has yet to earn its claim. We appreciate theanxiety of members to get home, and especially the Union members, who have been in no degree responsible for the worse than waste of two months of the session,; but the re sponsibility' of legislation is upon the Union party; and the personal conve nience of members must not weigh againfit the great interests of the State, OrewlY fearfully'periled in credit by the unscru pulous treachery - 1)f the ttemOcracy. The, appropriation and apportionmeni bills will . be passed of course; but the revision of our revenue and militialawS is demanded . Most imperatively. Our militia is entire ly without organization; and in , case of invasion an army has to be created for local defence, at enormous cost and with perilous delay, and when organized it lacks in every element of efficiency save in ; the single quality of destructiveness upon friends. If we had a' well ! organized mi litia, uniformed, armed; equipped , and of ficered by, skillful men, we could call out fifty thou Sand men at.agetime, and they would have some . degree of-, organization at once; and if not. eminently efficient against the foe, they would at least,not leave as monuments of their triumphs line of march marked by wanton destruc tion. ; Equally imperious is the necessity. for a revision. of our revenue laws. The treasury is literally bankiapt, with im mense resources and unparalleled pros perity in every 'Channel - of industry and trade. The revolutionary, experiment of the Democratic, Senators cost the State over half a. million Mars by defeating legislation authorizing the payment .of the interest in currency; .and, it has so depleted the treasury thatunequal to it is to the ordinary demarids of the govern ment with the vast, drafts made upon it to provide for our soldiers. We cannot refuse to b&just to our braye volunteers. We cannot refuse to minister to them when racked by fevers or writhing un der ghastly „wounds in i hosPitals.; • We. cannot refuse to our herdic martyrs in the Cause Of our Nationality, the poor boon of the right of sepulchre' with their kind red. irm's, and hundredi of other ex pendittires are essential' to the honor of our State and the comfort of our soldiers; and they involve in the, aggregate a vast outlay. Unless our tax laws are revised so as to increase our revenue materially the treasury must be fearfully embarrass ed before the close of the fiscal year; and the constitutional liniltotion of State in debtedness renders, us' utterly, unable to meet the expenditure's by loan. .' The collection of the large amount of money' dnetlte State for unpatente.d lands is dictat4alike by common honesty and necessity: 'The people cart pay now if ever, and it is - a mistaken liberality that would' give longer indulgence. It is un just to our exhausted j treasury to allow the holders ()fluids te, owe' some five mil lions, while others have paid the just claims of the Commonwealth. This source of revenue alone would make the treasury abundantly able to zneetn.ll demands that could be lawfully made upon it; and it would lie gross wrong' to the people, and to the credit of the State, if with such large resources due and available, the leg islature far' to demand prompt payment of these claims. • —The 'Delmer* scant the treasury bankrupt—the Union men must do their duty ;and save our finanees and the fame of our Commonwealth. How they 'can, do it, is clear to every one., Tni IJ., 'Si 'Senate, on Friday last, adopted by alvote of 38 to 6, the-follow ing proposed unendpienta to the Condi tutioa of the ppited.States:- • Be k't resoled, By the_ ;Senate 'and House of Representatives of the United States of America in CongresS assembled,two thirds of both Houses concurring, lit the following article be pro posed to the C nstitutiot of the United States, which, when . , atitied three-fburths of said Legislatures, shall be vhlid to all intents and purposes asa part ofthe Said Cadstitntion name ly AItT.

The district , delegates to the National Convention are to be selected by local conferences; and while electing delegates to the State Con vention, Congressionbiconferences sh ould also be- chosen by the several counties. Two National delegates are to be elected in eacliidistriet. , BOTII branches'Cir the legislature have reported legislative apportionments, diff ering materially " as to some parts of the State, hnt harmonizing as to the districts in this section. Franklin and Adams constitute our new Senatorial district, and Maple has one member while Franklin and Perry are atkeiated to elect two members. : Somerset, Bedford and Fulton electltwo members •jointly and one Sena tor. York has three members and Cum berland one, and the two counties form,a Senatorial district. Either bill Might be. called a clear double shuffle on the Dem ocritcy; but we do mkt - fee any such gerry mapdering , as. crowding Franklin down by little county like, Fulton, in imita tion of the Democratic apportionment of 1857. Little Perry has struggled nobly since her, ,revulsion against the ; Democ racy in .1854, and is one of the few faith fill among the . faithless in the Southern tier of counties. • LIEUT. GEC.
