WE are indebted to Hon. Thos. Wil

documents. Also, to Col. Jordan, Mili
tary State Agent, for=a list of the Penn

THE entire Bar of Cluunbersburg, and
all the officers of the CoUrt residing here,
united, on Monday last, in a recommen
dation to Gov. Curtin for the appoint
ment of Hon. ALEXANDER KING, of Bed
fofd; as President Judge of this District,
in place of Judge Nill, deceased. We
presume that Mr. King will be without a
competitor for the position;and his ap
pointinent 'mu3F be regarded as settled.
It is a compliment of no Common order
thus to be rectimmended with such una
nimity for a position demanding eminent
legal attainments and blameless charac
ter, and the highest endorsement we can
give, is to say that Mr.Kingin all respects
merits the confidence manifested by his
brethren of the district. He will doubt
less be appointed in a very few days.

The last week has. been eventful with
grand marches and masterly strategic
movements on the _ art of Gen. Grant in
Virginia ) and Gen. Sherman in Georgia.
No general engagement had been fought
by either at our last advices, 'but both
have steadily pressed:forward and 'com
pelled their foes to retreat toward their
main points of defence.
Gen. Grant renewed his forward move
ment on Friday the MI-ult. Gen. Lee
was strongly entrenched about Spottsyl
vania, and Gen. Grant hastily retired his
army some distance toward Fredericks
burg, and then th6w it around Lee's
right, completely flanking him and turn
ing his strong position. It was a posi
tive surprise to Lee, for ho moved forward
on the day affer tin force to feel Grant's
position, and found but a skirmish line.
He then evacuated his fortified lines, and
followed Grant toward Richmond on a
parallel line north of the Fredericksburg
railroad. Lee did s not get across the
North Anna in time to . dispute Grant's
passage, so he was compelled to retire
to the South Anna some twenty - miles.
from Richmond, and there ho took a
strongly fortified position. But Genera/
Grant seems to 'have a way of fighting
when and where it - suits himself, and'lte
made just sufficient demonstration on
Lee's new line to make him concentrate
for a decisive battle, 'when to Lee's sur
prise again, Grant hastily retired across
e ,North Anna, and turned up a few .
days thereafter on the Pamunkey at Han
overtown, about twelve miles North-east
or Richmond. , Lee's new line on the
South Anna was thus effectually turned
again by this bold and masterly maneu
ver, mid Lee has doubtless fallen back to
form a new line on the Peninsula side of
Richmond and immediately under its ior,
Gen. Gmnt has thus turnedihne.e cho
sen positions of Gen. Lee by his 'dashing
flank , nitivements ; and an active. Cam
paign, of less than one nmsth, ihafls tLee,
with the best, the strongest and.tale last,
ariny,qf treason, fought awl matten,vered
fifty miles back from his original lines.
That Lee has retreated from every
tion most reluctantly, is evident from the .
fact- that he never abandoned a line ,t.'
less driven from' it in, action, or success
fully flanked by his skilful Itnd tireless
foe. He surrendered the Wilderness to,
save his army in the intrenchments of
Spottsylvania ; he surrendered his in
trenchmenta after several days of bloody
conflict because he could not protect his
flanks; be lost the line of the North Anna
because-Grant was first to reach it, and
he finally had to abandon the South An
na—his strongest position outside o the
Richmond fortifications—because Irrant
rushed around his right again and com
pelled him to fall back' to save Richmond
from immediate capture. Gen. Grant's
new .position gives him an easy line of
cominunication - and supplies by' water to
White Hmise, but a little distance liom
his army, and it brings him also within
twenty miles•of General Butler. 'He cut
ioose from his old base; 'and thus wastes/
'no men guarding long lines, and be can
reinforce Butler and move 'south of the
James river, or he can draw Butler to him
iu twenty-four hours.. It would seem
that he is entirely master-of the situation,
and we hope to hear good new from him
before going to- presS. If so, our tele
graph columns will give it.
. —Gen,. Sherman has advanced steadily
in Georgia, and at last accounts had
brought Johnston at bay IA a strongly
fortified position near Dallas. He is now
within . forty miles of Atlanta, mid has
every prospect of reaching - that finpoit
ant point in a short time. If Atlanta falls
before Sherman, we would soon- make
Richmond untenable, so that the fluccess
of either Grant or Sherman is fatal to our
So far all looks well. Let us patiently
wait for the full fruition of the, grand
movements of our Generals. They are
progressing with a rapidity hitherto nn
exanapled in the war, and they can in no
way better serve their holy cause, than
by saving every soldier not imperatively
demanded as a sacrifice to treason.

Some two weeks ago the- World and
the Journal of Commerce,two prominent
newspapers of New York city, appeared
with a forged proclamation, purporting
to come from President Lincoln. Gen.
Grant had just closed the series of san
gninag3r struggles in the Wilderness and
on the Po, but Lee bad not yet commenc
ed his retreat toward Richmond. The
National heart beat nervously lest Lee
should be stroug'epough to resist Grant's
advance, and the appalling sacrifice he
had madelo gain the line of the Po, with:
out a decisive victory being clearly man
ifest, made thousands of loyal men trem
ble for their holy claiise. So far as the
official bulletins threw 'light upon the
progress of 'the campaign, the advantages
were decidedly with the Union army;
but anxious- fears - were mingled with • the
earnest hope's of patriots as they scanned
the fearfully crimsoned- record of their
country's vindication; A steamer was
about to-sail for Europe, and its news of
the terrible conflict in Virginia must have
a positive effect in directing the policy
of • foreign governments toward us and
our relentles3loes.
On.the morning of the day on which
the steamer sailed l the World and Jour
nal of Commerce issued the forgetl-Koc
lamation of the President, in which the
decisive defeat of Grant's army is frankly
admitted; the campaign declared to be
at an end, because of Grant's failure and
losses; recommending a day of fasting,
humiliation and prayer, and calling for
four hundred thousand additional'inen to
be raised at once. This proclamation if
sent to Europe uncontradicted, would
have precipitated the recognition of the
rebels by any government that desired a
pretext for espeusing• the cause of the
foes of the Republic, and was therefore
the deadliest blow that treason could have
conceived - against our Nationality. For
tiinately the fraud was discovered before
the steamer sailed, and the official con
tradiction went out to 'Europe with the
Proclamation but whence s it had
nated was not known. A stab aimed so
despelately at the vitals of the govern.:

lye fully appreciate the perils of justi
fyifig the exercise of arbitrary powers.
The nation cannot too jealously giard the
inherent rights of the citizen and the press;
but their inherent rights, are predicated
upon the assumed fidelity of the citizen
and press to the government that Is ex
pected to vindicate them. The claim is
not wholly oh the side of the citizen and
the , press—the obligations are mutual,
co-relative and must be co-extensive ; and
when a deadly blow is aimed at the vital
ity of the Republic, the instrument of
wrong, although free from positive crinie,
must yield:every essential sacrifice to vin
dicate the common protecting power of
the land. It is not lawful to seize the pro
perty of the citizen arbitrarily; but if ne
cessary to arrest a fearfUl conflagration,
the office of the World,..or of the Tribune
world be razed to the ground for the com
mon good, and the supreme law—the
safety of the people—would be accepted
in the act by the most technical of citi
zens: And so we justify—in this hour of
fearful peril to a Nationality for

arbitrary powers when the safety of the
people imperatively demandit. Beyond
this, it is a crowning crime, second only
to treason itself.
.—We have thought the authorities
needlessly harsh in protracting the sus
pension of the journals and telegraph
lines referred to; and until better advised,
we must share that conviction; but we
are not unmindful that we look to the
authorities to preserve our liberties; to
thwart the ceaseless and skilful machina
tions of treason, and to maintain at all
hazards the live of the Republic! Itis for

do not hastily espouse the common cause
of those - who seem to have no higher am

weaken the government to which they
owe every civil and religious right - they
possess. We have read. with abhorence
rather than with sympathy the studied
and malicious assaults of the Democratic
press Upon the government because of its
action in these cases. - Gov. Seymour
writes an official letter demanding the
prosecution of every.officer who, in 61)6.-

but he is silent as to the prosecution and

Hon. James N ill, President Judge of the
Franklin, Fulton, Bedfoid and Somerset
judicial district, died at' his residence in
this place on Friday last, of an aggravated
bronchial affection. For some weeks past
he hasbeen declining visibly, but be com
pleted his spring circuit, and was able to
be on the street until forty:eight hours be
fore he died. He was about 62 years of
Judge Nill was a native of this county,
and was admitted to the bar about 1828.
He con tinned the practice of his profes
sion until the fall of 1839, when he was
chosen to the legisture on the Democratic
ticket. In 1840 he was re-nominated, but
the political whirlwind that carried Har
rison into the Presidency, defeated him
with the entire ticket in this county, by a
decisive majority. In 1847,,, when the
Whig Senate had a stubborn issue with
Gov. Shunk relatiie to several Judges,
Mr. Nill was nominated by the Executive
as President Judge of the Chester district.
The nomination was made during the re-,
cess of the legislature, and his name did
not come before the Senate for confirmal
tion until the folloCcing winter, when he
was rejected in consequence of the pro
tracted political warfare between the Ex
ecutive and the Senate. He returned to.
Chambersburg andxesumed the practice
of the , hiw. In 1857 he was nominated as
one of the Democratic candidates for the
legislature, and was chosen by a majority:
larger than his party vote; and the fol
lowing year he was re-elected, although
his party was in a minority in the district:.
As a legislator he . was most faithful in his
efforts to carry out the views he honestly
cherished, and commanded the highest
measure of respect -for'his integrity and
ability. In 1860 lie was chosen a delegate
to the Democratio National Convention
at Charleston, and he gave an earnest

When treason made causeless'war upon
our Natieiaplity, Judge Nill arrayed'him r
self unequivocally on the side of the govl,.
erninent, and allowed no party prejudices
or interests 'to swerve him for a moment
from the faithful support of his country'
cause. He.baok the position that in time
of common clanger to ourcommon
tions, all party lines should be obliterated;
and he was one of the most prominent
men in our Midst In organizing the Union
party in the fall of 1861. His high char!.
deter and commanding position as a lau
yer and as *patn'ot, made him the unan
imous choice of the of thiis
county for the Judgeship at the eXpiiir 7
tion of Judge Kimmell's 'term, and he
was nomin' lite& by- the district, and elect
ed over Hon. Wilson Reilly. , Since De
cember 1861 he has discharged his duties
as Judge 'with great fidelity to justice,
until this , spring, when 'declining health
rendered him unequal to .the task, He
held his courts,. however, but returned!
recently from the Western counties sens
ibly enfeebled, and he gradually-declined
until two days before he died, when the

Thus after a life full of usefulness and
- honors, he has passed, away, as widely
lamented as he was known.
Tit E Somerset! Herald complains un
justly of the action of Franklin and
'Adams in' electing a rDelegate to the Nit
tinnal,Convention.; It was done in pub-
suance of an.'armagement made at the
State Convention,, by which each Sena
torial district in the COngressional dik•-
trict should select one Delegate, and thus
save the necessity, of traveling so far td a
Conference. The call made by the con
ferees of this county was made so that if,
the couterees of the western counties pre
ferred a general conference they could
attend; but afar' that call was issued,
Bedford county, byresolution of a county
meeting, conceded one Delegate to Frank
lin anti Adams, and instructed their con
ferees to meet Somerset and Fulton': * . co
conferees from the western counties meet
ing here on the 17th ult., it Was taken
for granted that Fulton; Bedford- and
Somerset preferred to meet separately,
- and our two counties elected d Delegate.
It was done certain} without , the-remo
test design to do injustice, or even the
slightest violence to ; the wishes of the
western counties, andit should not there
fore be complained id as a deliberate
wrong. As the editor of ,the Herald is
candidate for Delegate, we think he ought
to be content to rest his claims withhis
immediate neighbors; unless •he fears that
editors, like prophe : ts, sometimes have
honor save in their !own countries; and
as Franklin and Adams are presenting
no - candidates that iwe know of for the
suffrages of Somerset, the Herald might
have dispensed with its "stilts". until
some more . appropiiate season. We are
not clear indeed that such "stilts" be
come the incumbent of the most lucra
tive office inthe tlistrict at any tithe.
Probably 7 / e don't i know; but thitt's our
way of thinking.-
TIIE Bedford Gdzette is one of the most
malign ant of cOppeihea dj ournals. It takes
special delight in' Magnifying the misfOr
tunes of the Union arms, and in bolster
ing- up the cause Hof murderous traiters.
As a specimen of i,ts treasonable ai4d.
scrumilous ,menthicity, we copy the fol
lowing statement 'of Gen: Grant's loSses
from that journal pf a late date. It says:
"At the present ufriting (Monday) the result
of Grant's campaign against Richmond remains
in doubt. Already he has lost as many men as
composed M'clellan's entire army when that Gen
eral-marched up the Pininsu/a. The loss of the.
Federal army,, aceording to telegraphic reports,
cannot fall much short of 11.10,000 men,.killed,
wounded and missing: There have been about
thirteen days of fighting, including the small
battles fought by Gederal lintler, which Would
overage the loss at al?out 8,000 per day."
There are doubtless.many men. in Bed:
ford county who .read only the Gaiette,-
and whose Politieol' views are gathered
from its- colutims. I Is it to be wondered,
therefore, that s nie.k are disloyal, and op
pose the government, when theyare Made
to belive that Gen'. Grant sacrifices 100,.'-

THE late Judge Nill, who died child
less, by a will executed some years ago,
made a liberal bequest to a relative who
ii a native of this county and still resides
in the State ; butiby his will admitted to
probate on Monday last, he revokes the
legacy expressly on the ground that the
legatee sympathises with the traitors in
arms against the government. Judge
Nill waaa War Democrat, and he was as
'consistent in death as he was eatnest in •
life, in his abhorrence of .faithlessness to
our sacred Nationality. .
We learn from reliable sources that there are
now some 6,000 Pennsylvania wounded pol
diers in Washington, and from all the benevo
lent associations we have calls for aid to miti
gate the sufferings of these noble herpes. The
following letter from Bon. Jasper R. Brady is
worthy of the attention of our people.: The as
sociatibn of- which he speaks has done great
service' to our wounded, and oar ladies should
for Ward the supplies he desires as prikriptly as
possible. Articles left at the REPOSITORY of
fice will be acknowledged in these columns and
I _forwarded without delay.
To.the Editors of the Franklin Repository:
I see that the patriotic ladies of the "Green Spot,'d
are shortly to have a fair for the benefit of the sick
and wounded soldiers. As chairman of the Execu
tive Committee of the Pennsylvania Relief Associ
ation of this city, and as a fonner resident of Chem
bersb urg, I appeal to them through you, to romem-:
ber the wounded now in the hospitals of Washing
ton and 'vicinity from one-third to one-fourth of
whom are Pennsylvanians amounting to thousand:.
The committee have now faithfullind kind-hearted
agents, gratuitously visiting our sick and wounded
brethren, distributing to them such little neces
saries and delicacies, as are not furnished by the,
Government or any of the Commissions; suchas'
fruits, jellies, pickles, &c. Our practise is, and has
~been from the commencement of our operations, to
deliver such supplies to the soldier himself. It was
adopted, because we early discovered that, if they
were left with the minor officials, they very often
fail to reach the objects of our benev.olenee.
I have been connected with the Committee since
its organization two years ago, and I hesitate not to
state that in proportion to our means, we have done
more for the sick and wounded soldiers than any
other association in existence. Our services, with
I the exception of one man, are gratuitous.
Say,to the Franklin county ladies that if we could
at this tune receive some delicacies such as I have
inentioned, they would be gratefully received, and
would greatly contribute to the comfort and relief
of our suffering soldiers in ourhospitals.
Should the other ladies of your vicinage see fit
-to send us some such supplies, let them be di
rected to me as - Chairman of the Executive Com
mittee of the Pennsylvania. Soldiers' Relief Associ
ation of Washington city. -We will pay freight.

Thursday last Where they have been superin
teading the care oflennsylvania soldiers wound

in Fredericksburg Governor Curtin personally
devoted himself to the establishment of meas
ures to promote the greatest comfort and secure
the 'best medical attendance to the Pennsylva
nians in the hospitals, in that city, prior 'to
their removal to Washingtn.
We understand that such removals are being
made as rapidly as possible; and that the ar
rangements. in Washington city-are of the most
improved character for the accommedation of
the wounded. The friends of oprPennsylvania
heroes need give way to no solicitude as to the

word to leave no labor unperformed necessary
for their care. ' ,
THE Harrisburg Telegraph, speaking of the
„of Judge Nill, says he Was elected in
1861 over Hon—Wilson Willy, the Breckinridgel
candidate. :This_ statenient does injustice' to
'r. Reilly. He was an
. ardent Douglas man
in 1860, and has since earnestly advocated the
vigorous prosecution'of the war„ and the main
tenance of 11l the laws designed to sustain the
army. He volunteered in 1861 and raised a
company for the 6th Reserves, but was com
pelled to' resign on account of- impaired health:
His- two sons, hoWever, took his ranee, and
have served with credit. One, graduated at
West Point in 1862, and is in the highest branch
of the service, and' the other volunteered as a
private, '.and has gallantly earned promotiod
until he is now a'first Lieutenant in the 21st
Cavalry. Whatever may be Mr.• Reilly's polit;
ical affirmities r he has never sanctioned Breck
