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
• 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
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-
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
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 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

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

wisdom, industry and skill to the present
legislature hitherto unkhasin in similar
bodies, and to which it has yet to earn its
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
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.,
