Eta The President, in accordance with
the joint resolution of Congress, has issued
a proclamaiion appointing the first Thurs
day in August next as a day of humiliation
and prayer for the people of the United
States, recommending them to confess and
repent of their manifold sins, and implore
-the compassion and forgiveness of the Al
mighty; and to pray, that if consisient with
His will, the existing rebellion may be spee
dily suppressed, and the supremacy of the
Constitution and laws of the United States
be established throughout the States; that
the rebels may lay down their arms, and
Speedily return to their allegiance; that they
may not,be utterly dekroyed ; and that amity
.and fraternity may be restored, and peace
'established thioughout our borders.
••airThe only citizens of Pennsylvania
who are denied the elective franchise are
those who are engaged in the noble work of
defending their Government. No other call
ing or occupation disqualifies them for ex
ercising the highest prerogative of freemen.
A man may be just us worthless and degrad
ed as he can make himself; he may be a
charge upon instead of a support to his Gov
ernment, he may be plotting the nation's de
atruction, and contriving how he can most
effectually aid those who have taken up arms
in the service of treason, still he is allowed
a voice in Government of his State and the
choice of thci;'rulers. But those who deserve
most of their" Country, Who have sacrificed
their time and business and have perilled
their lives to save her institutions from de—
struction by traitors are denied the right
that the meanest man or most cowardly trai
tor in our midst, exercises unquestioned.
Bow long shall our Country's soldiers be
treated as felons just because it dont suit the

We call the attentionof qtr readers tiitha
fact that an election is to 'be held on next
Tuesday, Agust 2nd to decide: upon several
proposed amendments to our , State Constitu
tion. These Amendments have received the
approval of the Legislature at two successive
Sessions and now only require the ratification
of the, people to become part of our i'unda
mental law. Although these new
have been published in the Election Procla
mation still their importance entitles them
to a more prominent notice and we therefore
copy them hero.
SECTION 4. Whenever any of the quali
fied electors of this Commonwealth shallge
in any actual military service under a req
usition from the President of the United
States, or by authority of this Common
wealth, such electors may exercise the right
of suffrage in all elections by the citizens,
under such regulations as are or shall be
prescribed by law, as fully as if they were
present at their usual places of elections.
SEcTioN 8. No Bill shall be passed by
the Legislature containing more than one
subject, which shall be clearly expressed in
the title, except appropriation bills.
SxoTioN ti. No bill shall be passed by
the Legislature granting any powers or
privileges in any case where the authority to
grant such powers, or privileges. has been,
or may hereafter he conferred upon the
Courts of the Commonwealth.
The legal form of the ballot for those who
favor the adoption of these proposed amend
ments will be as follows:
These ballots should be cut and folded sop
!irately and deposited in separate boxes.
It seems strange that there should b the
slightest opposition to any of these amend
!mints ; and particularly to the first. That
men should be eager t4)-confer on the brave
defenders of their Goverunu•nt, thier proper
ty and their homes, the same rights that
they enjoy themselves would seem but just
and honorable ; but that there should exist
any man base enough to refuse our gallant
soldiers the privileges of citizens is almost
beyond belief. But in the political arena
we constantly MT things so incredible as to
almost make, us doubt the testimony of our
senses. With all the gallant deeds of our
brave men fiiesh in the memory of every
one; with the knowledge that it is to their
heroic valor that we are indebted to day for
the peaceful enjoyment of all we have, there
sire a art of politician's who are now schem
ing to defeat a measure intended only to
confer on our soldiers the right:, which free
We have looked anxiously into every
Democratic journal that has come in our
way to find a single word in favor the i.ol
dier's right to vote but we have looked in
vain. Columns have been filled with abuse
of the C of eminent and apologies for traitorS
but not a single line has ad ocated the
claims of those who are perilling their lives to
save the country.
If their indifference were not sufficient
indication of their dislike to the measure we
can easily find in their actions enough to
show their opposition to it. Last winter the
Democratic members of the Legislature, al
though they had not the hardihood to oppose
the measure openly and manfully. did their
utmost to defeat it indirectly. They dared
not vote against the first amendment direct
ly, but they all voted against the other two
amendments well knowing that they suc
ceeded in- having them stricken out the first
could not be submitted to the people. This
covert and dishonorable blow at the rights
of the men who are fighting their battles
only too clearly indicates the course they
have determined on at the coming election.
They intend opposing the amendment hid
denly and secretly, but they will prevent its
adoption if within their power.
Now we appeal to every friend of the
Union; to every one who believes in the
justiee‘of our cause and who line the slight
est feeling of gratitude to our brave men who
have endured so much in its defence, to go
earnestly to work to secure the adoption of
the Amendments. Let every one feel that
the success of the cause depends on his in
dividual efforts and exert himself according
ly. Let no false feeling of security or cer
tainty of success prevent the triumph of tar ,
soldier's friends from being complete and
Hend'erson, B. B
fie — We have been informed by a number
of reliable persons from the Country that
the Democratic local politicians are indus
triously circulating the report that if the
Amendments to the Comitit ution are adopted,
negroes, who are in the service, will be ena
bled to vote because they are soldiers. Men
who will circulate such stories fir the pur
pose of preventing men from voting to con
fer upon our soldiers the right of suffrage
are capable of any conceivable act of mean
ness and dishonesty. There is not theslight
est foundation for the assertion. The pro
posed Amendment only speaks of "qqatified
electors 1P this Commonwealth" who shall
be in the service; and "qualified electors"
are, as even copperheads know, white men
over twenty one years of age.

Brooklyn, New York, last Friday. The loss
was between $700,000 and 800,000. Among
the articles destroyed was $300,000 worth of
guano and $150,000 Worth of wool. The
brig Cwsur and Helena, from Hamburg, was
also destroyed. It is reported that the fire
was caused by a lighted cigar having been
thrown upon some nitrate of soda.

Second Am endment,
Last weels . .tio.Were'llTored with an abun
dance oirtimars :concerning the action of a
Pence Confegince, at Niagara Falls. The par
ties to this arrangement were Mr. Horace
Greeley of the N.Y. Tribune on the side of the
Government, and Clement C. Clay of Ala
bama, Professor James C. Holcbnibe of Vir
ginia, and - Geo. N. Sanders on part of the
Rebels. Mr. Greeley it- appears had been
appointed by the President to meet these
prominent Rebels, who were supposed to be
the accredited bearers of propositions of
Peace from the Rebels to our Government
and to give them safe conduct to Washing
ton. They had a correspondence which en
ded without any propositions of Peace be
ing advanced by the Rebel agents. The New
York papers contain the correspondence in
full from which we make the following sum
The introduction to the whole matter is a
short priVate note, dated 12th inst., from
George N. Senders to Horace Greeley, stat
ing "that Hon. Clement C. Clay, of Ala
bama ; Professor James C. Holcombe, of
Virginia, and George N. Sanders, of Dixie,
are ready and willing to go at once to Wash
ington, upon complete and unqualified pro
tection being given, either by the President
or Secretary of War."
To this note Mr. Greeley replies, July
17th, that understanding the gentlemen
named to be "duly accredited from Rich
mond as the bearers of propositions looking
to the establishment of peace," he is "au
thorized by the President of the United
States to tender them his safe conduct on the
journey proposed, and to accompany them
at the earliest time that will be agreeable."
Messrs. Clay and Holcombe explain that
they have not been accredited from Rich
mond as bearers of peace propositions; but
that they are in time confidential employ of
their government., and felt authorized to de
clare that, if the circumstances disclosed in
this correspondence were communicated t o 1
Richmond, they or other gentlemen would
be invested w Ulm full power. They seek
safe conduct to Washington, and thence tv
Mr. Greeley answers that the state of facts
being materially different from that under

it was advisable for him to communicate by

To this document, Messrs. Clay and 1101-
coin be take grave exception. In a lung, and
final, letter to Mr. Greeley, dated 21st inst.,
they complain that '•it provokes as much in

ourselves, and in earring the well moritted

—Whilst an ardent desire for peace pre
vades the pt - iple of the Confederate States,

any, anning them who would purchase it at

If it can be secured only by their submiss

yet unborn which will witness its restitution.
If there be any military autocrat in the
North who is entitled to proffer the condit
ions of this manifesto, there is none in the
South authorized to entertain than. Those
who control our armies are the servants of
the people, not their masters; and they have
no more inclination than they have right to
subvert the social institutions of the sover
eign States, to overthrow their established
constitutions and to barter away their pre
cious heritage of self-government."
Here the conference ended, and the par
tie, separate, each going his own way.
Whilst we regard the entireaction of Gen.
N. Sanders and the prominent Rebels in his
company as merel3:intended to break ground
for the Chicago Convention, we are glad that
the conference met. The President has in
dicated clearly the only grounds on which
Peace can be optained and the only persons
with whom he can be expected to treat. The
rebels have spurned his offer and we are
willing that their friends here make all the
capital out of the occurrence they can.

Her immediate border at Wei point *as
doubtless saved from spoliation by the the Skill
and energy of General Couch and the *cor
dial support given his plans by the citizens
generally ; hilt it was rather the weaknessof
the foe than the positive strength if our
friends that has left us our harvests and stock,
while our neighbors of Maryland have been
remorselessly plundered of millions. There
was rebel force enough within twenty-five
miles of Chambersburg to have marched to
Carlisle, and devastated the fairest valley of
the State, swarming with valuable stock, and
golden with the richest fruits of the husband
man. That they did not, is our fortune—if
They shall be able to do it hereafter, wesllall
deserve it. Already the border counties
have suffered to the amount of more than a
million, of which nearly an equal division
may be charged to friend and foe, and we
subMit to the legislature that we have had
our share of wanton spoliation.
The legislature will meet in a few weeks,
and, notwithstanding the restriction of its
business by the resolution of adjournment,
the defenee of the Stat i c is a question so vital
to the people and so directly affecting the
fame of a great Commonwealth, that all
necessary measures for common safety should
be considered by general conseent. Our
militia law should be perfected and put into
practical operation ; and a State Guard or
Reserve, such as Ohio and New York have
in existence, should be organized undersuch
laws and regulations as could not fail to make
a certain force of 30,000 available any day
for ;little defence. It must be regularly and
permanently organized, uniformed, armed
and complete in all its appointments, or it
will be valueless for defence, wasteful of our
means, and an infliction upon the people it
proposes to defend. , The truth must .belook
ed squarely in the face, that raw, disorgan
ized and imperfectly appointed militia, how
ever excellent the material of its composi
tion, is a costly burlesque upon war.. and
dangerous only to friends. The same men
regularly and permanently organized, with
good officers and occasional drill, would lie
ready for service in a single day, and would
lie soldiers when called to the field.
In addition to the general organization of
the militia, or the formation of a Reserve,
there should he special legislation for the
border counties. Without it there must be
perpetual danger, and of course periodical
panics and constant sense of insecurity.
Journals quite beyond the possibility of dan
ger can publish eloquent editorials calling
upon the border people to rally to their own
defence, and resist the rebel marauders; but
such writers arc wanting either in intelli
gence or common candor and honesty. A
citizen captured with arms by such amiable
rebel leaders as NUCausland. is summurily
dispatched and his property destroyed ; and
to call upon a peaceable agricultural people,
who seldom know wlmther there five hun
dred or fifty thousatid rebels on Um border,
to peril their lives and property by a disor
ganized and most It kely fruitless defence, is
more than even a New York Editor viould
be wilhng to respond to. When the same
valiant men quell the next Irish riot without
the aid of the general governmePt and regi
ments of regular troops, the border may seek
to learn their system of successful self-de
State owes Something to the thrice
plundered and ever threatened border, and
it is asking but little that, in addition to the
general measures adopted for common de
fence, the people of the exposed couni''s bo
organized under compulsor laws, reaching
every able-bodied citizen from eighteCn to
fifty who is fit for homeserviee. Theyshould
be formed into companies, regiment; and
brigades, and armed, uniformed, munitioned
and fully equipped for service by the State,
so that they would come under the estab
lished rules of war, and ever guerrillas could
not find a pretext for the butchery in ease of
disaster. They should be required to drill
at stated periods, with heavy penalties im
posed in case of wilful neglect ; and they
be paid by the State when vaned out for NI:-
eial service. Such an organization effected
in the counties of York, Adams, Franklin,
Pulton, Bedford and Cumberland, would be
a certain protection againxt rebel raids. A
marauding party of even 5,100 men coulti not
Ii pc to gather plunder in the face of such a
force ever on its flanks and in its front and
rear, as it would be put on the defensive and
periled at every step.
The State has arms and ammunition ; e
quipments fur both cavalry and infantry,
and has artillery and all that pertains there
to but horses. The cost of uniforming the
men and paying them V. hen actually called
into service, would he the Ns hole tax upon
the State, and that could probably bedivided
with the general government. We submit
to legislators and to the authorities, both
State and National, whether the protection
of the border people, already' sorely despoil
ed, and thq fame of the Commonwealth, do
not dennind the measure. Under such a law
Franklin county would have 4,000 men un
der arms, embracing artillery and cavalry,
under General Couch's immediate call, and
the adjoining counties could swell his defen
sive force to a clever sized army in a day.
We have experienced and brave soldiers in
abundance to officer the whole force, and if
the legislature will but do its duty in the
premises, we can safely answer for the peo
ple of the border performing their part
promptly and effectually.—Franklin R.Tos
WHY THE REBELS ABE CALLED "JOAN
NIES."—In 1861 the Federal soldiers called
the rebels "Secesh; in 1862, "Confeds ;" in
1863, "Graybacks," and 41.1864 they called
them "Johnnies." A correspondent gives
us the following information about the ori
gin of the last-named soubriquet: The name
of "Johnny" originated in a quarrel between
a couple of pickets, which began by iho .
Federal telling the rebel that they (tlki reb
els) depended on England to get ottt of this
scrape, which the rebel denied emphatically,
saying that they were able to scrape thetn
solves out. One word brought on another,
until the Federal said his opponent, was no
better than a Johntijr Bull anyhow. The
Rob swore he would shoot YMilt if he called
him a Johnny Bull again. The quarrel was
stopped by another picket, and they soon

The Escape of General Tyler
The facts connected with the General's
escape are as follows :
•. On Saturday, after our troops had retired
from the Monoeuey bridge, Gen. Tyler and
his staff made a stand on the hill on the
east side of the bridge, but were not there
long before they discovered themselves to be
surrounded by the rebels. The General and
his party succeeded in malting their escape
on the north side, closely pursued by the (me-

g_ Sabel View:oY tlie: Situation:
A long article in The Geor:qia Consfitu
.tionqUA of the 29th ult., argue's that the
South should not imitate the North in lies
and boasts, but confesi the truth, and hot
make success out of 'disasters. The writer
exposds the Rebel dodge of making their
people believe that Johnston is driving
Sherman. just where ho wants him, in fol
towing language :
The magnificent army of Sherman has,
without loss rind without battle, forced back
one of our best armies, under a favorite gen
eral, and if he only had intended a raid, the
destruction of the vast agricultural interest
of the granary of our State is a loss which
we are ill-prepared to endure, and totally
unprepared to receive. The evil is, first, the
withdrawal from market of the essential food ;
second, the increase of iibpulation by refu
gees, which makes an increased demand on
the producing capacity of the State; third,
the increased - prices which tend to depreci
ate the currency, which cannot bear anoth
er one-third repudiation.
Then if it be more than a raid, and Sher
man holds his front by fortifications and his
rear by guards, it is an actual loss of empire.
Therefore, with harm actually done, and
with Atlanta and the great railroad interests
involved in the fate of a battle that Sher
man may or may nut risk, is it wise to tell
our people that the invasion of our State is
but a 'stupid blunder" of the enemy?
Just eight hours before the battle of Bak
er's Creek, a general high in command told
a lady in our hearing that the crossing of
the Mississippi by Gen. Grant placed him at
our mercy, and that the only thing to fear
was that lie. would take the alarm and escape
to his gun-b6ats before we could make the
attack. Twen ty-liar hours later our broken
columns were hurrying along the same road
in retreat, and the lady who had believed the
general could not save even her wearing
apparel. The general was not named Pem
A. G. CurtTlN
Instance after instance of this kind have
we had during the war, and yet grave pa
pers, with able editors, talk of the certainty
that Sherman can never take his army bark
to Chattanooga, and congratulate the coun
try that he has marched into a trap. We
once had some experience with an old rut
that always sprang the steel trap from the
under side, and always took on' the bait and
never got caught. The Yankees have a pe
culiar faculty of marching into traps and
stay ing there. Our only commentary upon
such writing is that such traps as half a
State, and-the best half at that, arc so ex
pensive as to perhaps awaken smiles in the
North and Europe when we boast, of them.
WHAT THE FACTS ARE ABOUT GRANT
In .pimmanner do we talk about Grant,
and aiiAthe ourselves over a set of farts which
are far from amusing. We are perfectly
satisfied that the Commander of the Armies
of the Unitad States might have reached the
result he now aims for with but a small por
tion of the loss he has now sustained, and
that, too, with all allowances for the pecu
liar Confederate arithmetic which kills Yan
kees so fast—on paper! Lieut.-Gen. Grant
was greatly mistaken in his idea that, hav
ing turned the flank of Gen. Lee in crossing
the Rapidan, there simply would be a foot
race for Riehmond. But two things have
since been demonstrated, anti both are se
First—That the army of the Union is
large and powerful that the usual military

'flanker than the flanked, - doe, ant apply.—
The strategy of I:rant. which coicdsts in

Therefore. he is at liberty to play tricks

ger ulna one not seen or foiled at exactly the
right time may catch us. Such a result
would not be destruction to our army, for
Lee also is too big to hold, but it might do
GRANT (AN HAVE' MS OWN WA.Y
The second danger is of the siege of Rich
mond. Some of our ememporaries and the
most of our correspondents taught at this ;
and yet Grant has it in his power to besiege
the capital, or lore,. an attack on Idin-elt, or
tier.. an evacuation of Richmond. Not that
lie has his choice of these three things, but
can tore.. that choice upon 115.
In Grant moving upon ihe south of Rich
mond and threatening the .1 iunes River near
the city, Gllll. Lee has choice of two

valley of irgin lit 15 ' 111 Me 111111d5 of the ene
my. If Lee wants to have Peter,burg and
Richmond both, he will have to attack Grant
in one of his craw-fish movements, and will
base to attack the positions and intrench
merits which the grand spade-and-pick army
never exists an h o ur witlinnt.
In our judgment the tilan id . the campaign
is at last developed. \\ estern V irgiina, the
Valley and its resources is, by the move
ment on Staunton and Lexington, to be ren
dered una% tillable fur provisions. Grunt is
to throw his army into fortifications across
the railroads from Richmond south, and , so
cut oil our army supplies. Thus the starva
tion of the siege will be ILA effectually secured
as if 1111 army could be found large enough
to surround the legions of Lee, as Grunt did
Gen. Pemberton; provided of course, that
the Danville road shares the fate that the
Weldon road probably will.
It' Gen. Lee chooses to stop the same by
fight, he has to put his finger on the slippery .
Grant, and stop his flea-like tlankings ; and
and having found him and stopped hint for a
light, will have to charge the hills Grant will
occupy and the trenches Grunt will dig. if
President Davis concludes to swap capitals,
and giving Grant Richmond, starts off ahead
of bun for \Vashington we will have the
army to subsist in the desert waste between
the two capitals; have to make time on foot
that will beat the transports on the Potomac
and the Chesapeake, have the fortifications
of Washington to storm, and a siege to stand
there should lie get inside.
We lose Richmond if we hold the Weldon
and Danville Railroads ; we lose thu railroads
if we save Richmond, or we attack Grant in
his mighty trenches if we try to save both.
It is true that Gen. Beauregard could still
keep south of Grant, and prevent raids into
Carolina, but could not keep him from stop
ping the roads south unless ho has enough
men to attack Grant in reserve, and place
him between two tires. We hope Grant
thinks ho his. This is a game with no pos
sible hindrance, perfectly plain to even un
ndlitary comprehension as our own, and we
respectfully submit that there is no fun in it.
DON'T CROW BEFORE WE ARE OUT OF TUE
The writer is aware, from personal obser
vation, that there is a personal popularity
and enthusiastic devotion to Grant among
his soldiers not equaled by anything ever
seen in that army before—not surpassed in
the army of Lee—and very much like the
Old Guard of Napoleon. Therefore ho can
flank and tight for some days yet before they
get tired of it.
- These are facts and plain as they are it is
not in good sense to talk of the trap that
Sherman occupies, or of the bull-headed
Grant butting his brains out against the Walls
'When the supplies of Sherman aro cut off,
as wo trust they will,be, and the great raider
of Mississippi broken in battle or

Washington, July 24r
The Government has received dis
patches from Gen. Sherman, announcing
that on Friday the rebels under General
Hood massed a heavy force against his

corps, and made a desperate attack, gain

to a retrograde movement.
Cincinnati, July 24.
The correspondent of the Gazette, tin
der date of July 22d, gives details of the
movements of Sherman's army since
crossing the Chattahooehie river.
Un the morning of the 18th th'e whole
line advanced, M' Pherson taking position
on the extreme left, Schofield the left
centre, Howard the centre, and Palmer
the extreme right.
On the Dth our advance reached
Peach Tree Creek, a stream four miles
north of Atlanta, and, after skirmishing,
the enemy was dislodged, and portions of
loward's corps crossed on our left in the
meantime, swinging around to the Atlan
ta and Augusta railroad near Decatur,
and tearing up several miles of track.
On the eyeping - of the lPtli and morning
of the 23th, Howard, Hooker and' Palmer
crossed with the balance of their corps, form
ing in line of battle along the north bank of
the creek. At 3r. m., the rebels made a
desperatit and sudden assault on Howard, in
great force. The attack soon extended to
Hooker's corps, the rebels advancing three
lines deep. A portion of our line first waver
ed before tin terrible onset, but were quirk ly
rallied and stood firm as a rock.
Here this portion of our line was massed
against the , rebel army, both parties light
ing for the first time in the campaign in the
open field. Before dark the rebels were en
tirely defeated, having failed to break our
lines at any point and retired in disorthir,
leaving most of their deal and two thousand
wounded on the field. Our loss-will reach
two tlemsand men, principally from Hook

The Rebel Strength in the Late Raid
We are at last enabled to giv.e some facts
concerning the strength of the rebels in their
late incursion into Maryland, which place
the matter entirely beyond the pale of doubt
or speculation. We can vouch for the en
tire reliability of the facts and figures which
follow, and they effectually settle the ques
tion of the strength of the rebel force:
The force consisted of One division of cav
alry and mounted infantry, and two small
corps of infantry, all under chief command
of Maj-Gen. Early. The cavalry force is
under chief command of Maj-Gen. Robert
Ransom, and is composed as follows
B. T. JohnsonA brigade
W. L. Jackson's brigade
Total cavalry and mounted infantry 6,600
The two corps of infantry are temporarily
organized as follows: •
first Corps, commanded by Maj-Gen J.
C. Breckinridge, is composed of—
Echol's division, four brigades '4,500
Bantscur's division, two brigades 8,000
Second Corps, commanded by Maj-Gen
Gordon's division, three brigades 4,800
Rhodes' old division, five brigades GAO
total infantry 16,400
Total cavalry and mounted infantry 6,500
with three batteries of artillery
Of this force, three to four thousand were
left south of the Potomac, at Lynchburg,
Staunton, Gordonsville, Winchester, and in
the gaps of the Blue Ridge. The total force
which crossed the Potomac did not exceed
sixteen thousand of all arms, including non
combatants of all kinds. The fighting
