Ms. Guam, on the 11 th of this last
month, spoke of "the great, conspicuous;
abundantly established fact that the engi
neers of the rebellion desired and labored tor
that very Republican tiumph of 1860 which is
here made the cause of tlikir revolt." And be
added : "All through the canvass we He
publicans recognised and treated the bolt
ers as our virtual and powerful allies, And
when, through their aid, we had elected
Lincoln and Hamlin, our triumph was
nowhere more generally and openly exulted
twee than in Charleston, the fountain and foAts
of the rebellion." - • ,
It will thus be 'seen that Mr. Greeley
substantially acknowledges that the Re
publican and the secession leaders were,
so far as regards the ulteriOr objects of the
latter, "bone of one bone, and flesh of one
flesh." The secessionists rejoiced at the
election of .Lincoln, because they knew
that it would furnish them the very fuel
they needed to "fire the Southern heart."
What the success of Mr. Lincoln and his
party waa at the commencement of the re
bellion their actions have been ever since.
They have furnished the 'rebel leaders all
the exasperating food they needed to keep
their people up to a proper state of resist
ance, and to-day, after more than three
years of war, in which they have submit
ted to privations such as no other com
munity voluntarily endured, we see them
more thoroughly united, and more deft
earn rebellious than they were at the
start. Can any one•doubt •this statement
who reflects over the events that have oc
curred since 'the spring of 1861 ? What ,
the people must do, if they want ,to put
down the rebellion and bring back peace,
harmony and happiness once• more to the
land, is simply to drive out of place the
demagogues who now rule over them with
a rod of iron, and thus remove the chief
obstacle that prevents the Southern mas
ses from returning to their old time affec
tion for and allegiance to . the Union. The
defeat of the lispublicin party in Novem
ber, let it be remembered; is the defeat of
Jefferson Davie quite as•tnuch a. ti is thitt
Tns Boston 'Traveller gives currency to
t some very extraordinary statements re
garding the Army of 'the Potinac. It
says that the private soldiers have given
their officers quietly u understand that
they must not expect them to assault im
pregnable earthworks hereafter ; that the
1 -campaign h a far has been one of useless
butchery, in which no regard has been
paid to the lives of the troops. The same
paper hints, as did the Tribune the other
day, that the reason the colored soldiers
were given the post of honor at Peters
burg was because the white troops were
indisposed to make' the assault. .Of course
we entirely discredit theae rumors of in
subordination, but it is probably true that
in the army, as well as out of it, there is a
feeling that many, very many, valuable
_lives have been lost without any apparent
advantage being gained.
The Rochester Democrat, another Repub
lican journal, states that there is a great
deal of dissatisfaction in the - army, and
that an unusual number of resignations of
officers has been tendered, among whom
are five generals. The Roston Advertise,
also alludes to rumors it has heard to the
same effect. All this is calculated to add
to the despondency of the country; but we
sincerely hope matters are not so bad as
they are represented to be.
The Voting States.
Congress has decided that none of the
States which hare been formally declared
in insurrection shall vote for President
-until 're-admitted into the IT ion. The
States thus excluded 'from p ticipating
in the approaching Presidential contest
are as follows : Virginia, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia, - Aiabania, Ter
nessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida,
Arkansas and Texas.
Oar next President and Vioe President
are therefore to be chosen by the follow

though nothing of the kind has transpired
in their consultations with Greeley. I can.
safely say ibitt as far as these reputed rep.

rebel States will return to the Unien upon
the basis of State. sovereignty, each State
to manage its own social/institutions ; the
restoration of personal rights; let by gones
be by wines ; where slavery is wiped out.,
let it go. - Or, in other words they are
ready to take the principles of the Kan
sas and Nebraska bill, applied to States as
well as to Territories. Whether these gari•
tlemen in this speak the aentimenta of
the Southern Confederacy I leave othern
to judge. They know as much In regard
to that as can be gathered here. • '
"Greeley is ,so convinced that an oppor
tunity has offered itself to bring about an
adjustment that would not be humiliating
to either section, and stop the enormous
sacrifice of life and treasure, that he left
the impression here that be would xto
longer support the Administration. LoOk
out for squalls in the Tribune office. The
Seward men claim that they hold a ma
jority of the stock of the Tribune and that
they can prevent Greeley using it anion
Lincoln. If this is true it explains why
Greeley talks one thing privately and sm
other in the Tribune. He may under this
pressure leave the concern." .
Tat President bids fair to be deserted
in his "abandonment of slavery" ides,
nearly all of his party press. exoeptirig
the most fanatical Abolition organs. The
New York Tunes has had' several strong
editorials in which dissent to Mr. Lincoln's
ultimatum is plainly expressed. Even.the
New York 71 , ibuss, with its intense anti
slavery convictions, does not endorse the
President's plan. In an.editorial in Fri
day's issue, it states distinctly "Weise
unwilling to say that the Union shall be re.
constructed in one way or not at all." The
truth Is, that the whole country has groan
heartily sick of the war, and if the simple
giestiori was put to the people, "Shall the
Union be reconstructed as it was, and
peace be restored ; or shall the fighting
continue, with a determination te have
the Union on no other basis thatr . the
'abandonment of slavery?'" the former
proposition would be adopted by a µtwo-
thirds vote. , '

Why Abuse the Peunsy/vaatane I
It seems to us, that the, administration Jour
mils might be better employed than in. con
tinuing their abuse of. the ussforttuiate people
of Chambersbnig and Southern Pussylvanhe
As it was a Republican Congress that plaited
the whole military power of the country in the
hands of the Administration, and destroyed
the militia of the States in doing so, it is a
little too much to arraign the exposed border
States for not having an impromptumilitie
force in readiness to, resist unexpected briar'
ders. The people of the country were assurdd
that if this great military power was given to
the • administration, the rebellion • woutl be
crushed beyond all peradventure; and sikrely
the people of Maryland and Pennsylvania,: in
the immediate neighborhood of the National
Capital, could not have expected, after these
assurances of the Republican press and lead
ers, that the rebel army would be marching
and counter marching among them in the
fourth year of the war.
The people of Maryland and Pennsylva
nia should not be celled upon to make any
greater sacrifices than the people of, Vermont
or Wisconsin. Equally with these list States
they have supplied their quotas to the Nation
al armies, and it is the bounden duty of the
administration to protect theta in their Mimes,
in this last stage of the war, without excesslve
calls upon them is compared with other
States. That Governor Curtin is grossly in:
efficient is no doubt true; but the blame for
his retention in office mast be laid to the cre
dit of the Republican party of Pennsylvania,
who re-elected him: and with him a Republi
can majority in the Legislature. Now, ire
insist that.the people of Chambersburg have a
fair claim upon the country, or at least upon
the Republican party, for indemnity for the
damages inflicted upon them by the rebels.—
When the Republican press of the calantf.T
were urging . Congress to pass a Conscription
law giving the Administration the last man If
he was needed,'they lulled the people of Ma
ryland and Pennsylvania, and all the border
States to a deceitful-security by promising
them all that was wanting tti crush the rebel
:lien was that great power in the hands of the
Administration. kis they who are to blanie
for the disasters which. have come .upon the
People in not standing by the - Democratic Party
in Congress , and inalstiag that the raising' if
°or armies and their eqnipment should be left
where the Constitution placed it—with the
local authorities of the several States. Had
that been dose we would today have bid' an
efficient sanitary system ; not only in Penny'.
vaata„ but,in, all the Northern, Suttee. The
impotence of the exposed States is due exolu
lively to the Republican party, and it is with
them the blame properly belongs. , •
