PAT3IENT OF TUE 4IJILJTIA.
Go. Curtin sent the following message to the
legislature on Saturday before the adjournment,
explaining the necessity for authority to nego
elite a loan, to. reimburse the Banks for ad;
vancementia to pay the militia called out last
year. It will be seen that the assumption of
the National authoriqes ;was clear, and we
doubt not that Congress will repay the money
to the State:
To the Senate and Rouse of Representatives:—
Gentlemen : On the 15th of June last, in conse
quence of the advance of the rebel army north
of the Potomac,-the President issued his proc
laim. tiou calling for, Militia from this State to
rebel the invasion. I immediately issued my
proclamation of the 'same date, calling on the
militia to come forward. When the men be
gan to assemble under this call of the President,
some difficulties arose from their unwillingness
to be mustered into the service of the United .
States, as mischievous persons made themselves
busy in misrepresenting the consequences of
such muster. In this State of ^rffairs I sugges
ted to the President the expediency of my call
ing the militia, so as to remove the difficulties
which had been thus created.
The President approved of the suggestion,
and for tke purpose of attaining the end pro
posed by flis proolamation, directed me to make ,
a State call for militia. I accordingly, on the
'26th day of, June, 1863, issued my_call for the
militia. The United States clothd, equipped
and Subsisted the men thus called in service,
but declined to pay them on the ground that
Congress had made no appropriation for that pur
pose; assurances were, however, received from
the War Department that the money to pay
these troops should be advanced by corporations
or individuals, application would he made to
Congress. on its meeting, to 'make the necessa
ry-appropriations to refund the moneythus ad
vanced. Copies of WO telegraphic dispatches
from the Secretary of Whr are herewith sub.
mitted. One addressed to me, dated July 22,
1863, and the other addressed to a member of a
committee of the Union League, of Philadel
phia, dated July 21st, 1863, and Which was Ma
; mediately commtmicated to* me. On the faith
of these assurances I proposed that the moneyed
institutions of the State should advance the
Money - , there being no State appropriation for
lipledged myself that if the money should be
so advanced, I would recommend an'appromi
atiolz, by the Legislature to refund it, in case
Congress-should fail to -do so. A copy of my
letter on this subject, dated July 22d, 1863, is
heftwith submitted. These not being entirely
satisfaCtory to the gentlemen composing the
CoMmittee of Banks, they had an interview
tix. 7 4 me here, and I finally handed to them the
paper &tied 24th July, 1863, a copy Of which is.
also herewith submitted. Several of the banks
and other corporations in the State, acting with
their accustomed spirit and patriotism, promptly
came forward and agreed to advance the neces
sary funds, and the troops were accordingly
paid.. The disbnrsments were made, and the
pay accounts were so faithfully as well as for
mally kept, by gentlemen who acted - entirely
without compensation, that they were settled
by the Adjutant General of the State with the
aecOunting officers at Washington without any
. The sums thus advanced amount with inter
est at the present time to about $700,000. It
ought to be added that little more than one-half
of this sum was required to pay the troops du
ring the existence of the 'emergency. 'The
remainder was expended in paying such ofthem
as'against my remonstrance were detained after
wards by the- United States for the purpose of
enforcement of the draft.
The answers given by the Secretary of War
were, of course, sanctioned by the President.,
The pay of these troops was in fact a debt of
the United States, and the faith of the-govern
ment was pledged to do all in its power to p:o
-mire the proper appropriation by Congress to
refund the money. I regret to say that the
President has not considered_it to be his duty
to lay the matter openly before Congress by A
,A. bill, it is true, has -been introduced and is
now pending in Congress, providing the neces
sary appropriation; but 'it has met with oppo

ration by the Executive, of the pledges made
by the government, it may possibly be defeated.
Meanwhile, ps-your session is drawing to a

Executive Department of Pennsylvania, and do
therefore earnestly recommend the passage of
a law providing fbr - the repayment of the sums

Our own good faith will be thus preserv

AN I.vGENIu DEVIcE.—The following story
_is ^ told . of an old lady living in Buckingham
shire; England. The husband of this ancient
dame died without making his will, for the
want ofwhich very necessary precaution his es
tate would have passed away from his widow,
had she not resorted to the following expedient
to avert the loss of the property - She concealed
the death of her husband, and prevailed upon
an old cobbler, her neighbor, who was in person
somewhat' like the deceased, to go to bed at her
• bouse, and personato,him in which character it
was agreed that he should dictate a will, leave
ing the widow, the estate in question. An attor
ney was sent for to draw up the writing. The
widow, who at his arrival appeared in great of-
Medea at her good man's danger began to ask
questions of her.pretended husband, calculated
to elicit the answers she expected and. desired.
The cobbler groaned aloud, and looked as much
like a person goingtb give up i the ghost as possi
ble, feebly answered. "I ntend to leave you
halfiny estate, and I tbink the poor old shoema
ker who lives opposite is deserving of the other
half, for be has always been a good neighbor."
The widow was thunderstruck at receiving a
reply so different from that which she expected,
but dared not negative the cobbler's will, for
fear *fleeing the whole property, while the old
rogue' in bed (who was himself the poor old
I shoemaker living opposite laughingin his sleeve,)

A PARALL' EL,—,The Cleveland Herald recalls
the following, to show the effect the Fort Pillow
massacre is likely. to have:
The Texan revolution presented a notable
instance of the effect, of "no quarter." The
defenders of Bexar fought till but six- of their
number remained alive. These- six, one of
whom was Colonel Crockett . , surrendered on
the promise of protection, but being taken be
fore Santa Anna, they were, by his order, in
stantly cut to picices. Their remains were
' burned in the centre of the Alamo, by which
name the fort was • called by. the Mexicans.
This brutality aroused a fire in the hearts of the
Texans, which reSulted at the battle of San
Jacinto in the defeat of the Mexican army, and
the capture of Santa Anna himself. And -it

A Mxssount SLAVEHOLDER.-Mr. M'Clurg,
a member of Congress from Missouri, has given
written permits to four of his slaves to go Into
the army, securing to each of them whatever
compensation he himself may be entitled to as
a loyal owner, and stipulating that in case of
the death of the men their wives and children
shall receive the money: He hire also written
a letter to his " : yellowman," Caswell, in which
this :passage Occurs: "Make your own choice.
If you go into the (limy, let me hear frequently
from yam. Make peace with your God and you
need not fear death. If you ever fight, float
with desperation and never surrender. Enroll
your uade,as Creswell M'Clurg, and try to give
honor to ft. lii the army give your idle hours
to learning:to read and write."
TIIERE is something _beautiful and sublime
in the hush of midnight ; The myriad of quiet
sleepers, laying down each their life burden,
insensible alike to joyor sorrows ; helpless alike
the strong man us the infant; and over all; the
sleepless Eye, which since the world began, has
never lust sight of one pillowed head. Thoughts
like these come . •to us in our wakeful' night
hoiirs with an almost painful intensity. - Then
eternity only seems real, and every day-life a
fable. But morning comes, and the stir hum of
life chase them away-,as the warm sun dies upop
the dewdrops, which, like these thoughts per
form their reviving mission 'ere they depart.
A. cuTE,April fool trick was played upon the
gents of an eastern city, iu this wise:, Some
lively yoking ladies concocted a passionate love

the Veceiver should meet the writer on the next
evening with a white rosette in his button hole,
under thepost office clock. This epistle they
sent to divers gentlemen of their acquaintance.
The result was that fifty-two young men with
white rosettes in their button holes assembled at
eight o'clock next night, under the post office
time piece. They saw the joke,and enjoyed it

"HonsoN's CHOICE.."—This 'is a very com
mon expression, implying - , "that one has no
choice," or that ho must "take this or none."
The origin of this expression will interest our
readers. Tobias 1101353011 kept the first livery

sity. He had forty horses. for hire, some of them
very fine but he made an invariable rule that

BITING THE BlTER.—Years ago a well known
novelist, a man of great coolness- and courage,
was met by a stout fellow who demanded his
purse. "Capital!" the other exclaimed; "Lwas
