The Louisville Journal is very much
in earnest in regard to a -thorough re
construction of Union sentiment in
Kentucky and other States. It notices
the existence in large numbers of "mis
chief makers" and "secession dema
gogues" who do not intend to submit
in good faith to the authority of the
government, but who do intend toj
challenge the policy and resist with all
the power they din command, and of!
whatever kind, the free basis which
the war has established. Failing to
command a hearing by a demonstra
tion in behalf of secession or disunion,
or not possessing the courage to raise
these dead issust these agitators take
the slavery question as a means of re
gaining power and influence, and of
stirring up hostility to th?government
at Washington. They oppose the adop
tion of the Constitutional Amendment
by Kentucky, sneer at the Emancipa
tion policy of the Administration as
unconstitutional, and retard the resto
ration policy of the President for a
merely factious purpose. The Journal
comes gallantly into the fight against j
these "emissaries of disunion,'* and:
warns them that if they persist in their,
schemes, and make them an element in I
another Presidential election, they will;
lind a McNeil, a Butler or a Payne in
the chair, instead of a Lincoln or John-!
son.
The Journal distinctly says that the
downfall of slavery must inevitably re
sult from the war, and the Union men
of Kentucky predicted this several
years ago. It says:
"The friends of the Government in 1
the border slave States, while they did
not desire the downfall of slaveiy, were t
nevertheless resolved throughout the
war that the fate of that institution;
should not affect their loyalty to the;
Union, and hence they did not hesitate)
to advocate the continued prosecution'
of the struggle against rebellion even
when it l>ecame the settled policy of the
nation to destrov slavery in all the se
ceding States. \Vl?ile till Union men {
did not fight to destroy slavery, yet, for,
the sake of the Government and the!
Union, they sustained a war, the prose-!
cation of which unavoidably led to its.
destruction. The peace of the nation ?
was broken by an unnecessary and on-!
justifiable war made in the interest of
slavery ; that pcace is now dependent I
upon the acquiescence of the people,
North and South in the j?reat fact that;
slavery throughout the I nion has been ;
utterly and forever overthrown."
It seems rather late in the day to ex
press faith in the fact that slavery is ut- !
terlv destroyed, but there are men so
blind in Kentucky and elsewhere, as J
not to apprehend a truth which seems
self-evident, and so the Union press
and speakers at the South are com pell-;
ed to resort to first principles, and keep ,
the elements of knowledge constantly
before the people.
The Louisville Democrat says that
the "negro question is not solved," and
it is sup)>osed to take that issue into
the election which is soon to be held.
The contest then will be between pro
gress and retrogression, between the
party that accept the situation and the
party of reaction. If the latter succeed
they will stir up strife anew and retard
a peaceful settlement. They will give
new power to ail the elements of dis
cord in the yet imperfectly quieted
South, and afford "aid and comfort" to
the dying spirit of. disunion, and in
spire with fresh hopes the enemies of
the Union and of freedom. They do
not favor negro suffrage, but regard
that as a matter for themselves to do
clde. Their first triumph will be to
perfect the restoration of the State, and
insure the end of alavery as a State in
stitution.
Tunououthe agency of Mr. Mercer,
of Washington territory, the govern
ment has been induced to grunt the use
of the steamer Do Molay to transport
three hundred lady passengers to As
pinwoll, whence they will be taken
across the isthmus and up the coast to,
"Washington territory, the whole voyage
to bo entirely free. Tlio steamer'will
aail from New York on the 20tli of
August. The emigrants are promised
when tliey get to Washington territorv
good wages, to be paid in gold, and'
havo the added indorsement of pro-1
liable marriage within three months, if!
they wish. Thus the great problem is'
solved, and the East has the prospect of
getting rid of its "superfluous femnleK."
Upon what principle the general go
vernment aids this curious emigration
scheme, is not disclosed; but probably
asawar measure. The case is easily
made out?tiie Pacific coast may need
future defenders, but with a present
population of men only where is the
next generation to come from? There is
no getting round this.
A North Cabousi correspondent
of the Tribune says that many of the
Yankee soldiers have made up their
mind to stay in the South after being
mustered out, and that they are fas^
marrying the disconsolate voting la
dies anil widows, and settling down for
life ui>on the vacant farms which on
every band invito their labor and en
terprise.

WuhlRgton and JelfcnM (PaOCo*
lrffn?Historical
{Extract from the Report of Dr. fieott.)
A very interesting feature of our re
port this vear to the union of Washing
ton and Jefferson Colleges, now newly
ooDdommfttcd. .'
The institutions have both held use
ful and honorable positions for about
sUtvvears. They were both founded
in faith and prayer by the self-denying
Ludplot?flr& ^Uleri of Western Penn
svlvanto, the great majority
were Presbyterians, who thus manifest
ed their characteristic appreciation of,
liberal education, amidst trying;andpe
culiarly interesting circumstances. But
even among, the fathers of ^ 05 ^ !
Pennslyvania it was felt that these Col
leges were too near together-^he oneat
Canonsburg the other at W
both in the same county, and oni\ "
en miles apart. Tariotis
been made to unite them at diilerent
periods in their history. one oT wirich,
over thirty years ago, was almost sue
Washington College putitself
upon the ecclesiastical basis in lbo-, it
seemed as though the separation was
greater than evJr. There was consider
able heat and newspaper discussion.
Partizan zeal, however, soon subsided,
eac h College went on doing its own
work "The Colleges" became such ex
eelleiit neighliors that the idea of their
reunion was revived. The desire for
JhLTaa Shared by the Trustees and
Faculties, the Alumni, patrons and
friends of both institutions; it found
expression through tho surrounding
Presbyterian Synods ; and finally j
through a large and highly Influential
convention of the Alnmni of hoth,
which met In Pittsburg In September,
18<H. for the express purpose oi promot
ime the union of "the Colleges. The
desire for the proposed union was
greatlv quickened hy the munlflcent
offer of fifty thousand dollars for the
endowment of "the I tilted College,
made (as was afterwards more dis
tinctly announced,) by the Rev.
Dr. Beatty, of Steubenville, Ohio.
Through subsequent action of the
Boards of Trustees by both Colleges, a
plan was agreed upon for consolidating
the Institutions, upon what was re
garded by the parties immediatelj con
cerned, as fair and equal terms. The
necessary legislation lias recently been
obtaTned, in which the manner ofaffeet
inutlie consolidation is definitely plv
scrilied. Tlie united College is to be
called "Wasliington and Jefferson Col
leee " thus perpetuating the names of
both the old institutions, with the many
pleasant associations and important
interests connected with each. 1 he old
Boards are to meet on the29th of Starch;
and each is to appoint fifteen members
for the new Board of the united Col
lege. The old Board will be dissolved
alter the organization of the new Board,
which is to be within twenty days after
the meeting of the 29th inst. *1 he new
Board, when organized, will elect an,
additional Trustee, making tliirty-one
in all; trill be self-perpetuatiug; and not
strictly under ecclexiaMical control.
L*i>on this Board will then be devolv
ed the important work of organizing
the new College, by electing a Presi
dent and a suitable number of Profes
sors, and prescribing a course of studv
for each of the departments embraced
in the plan of the new institution.?
Some of these departments will be
taught at Canonsbujg, others at Wasli
ington : the whole constituting onp In
stitution, under the control of one
Board of Trustees, and the instruction
of one Faculty. The Senior, Junior
and Sophomore classes of the regular
College course will be taught at Can
onsburg; the Preparatory Department,
the Freshman class, and a Scientific
school of high erade, will be taught at
Washington. If an adequate portion
of the National Land Grant, be assign
ed to this College by the Legislature of
PennaVlvania, an Agricultural Depart
ment will also l>e established at W asli
ington. Much is anticipated from the
Scientific School, which, in the lan
guage of the charter, shall "afford fa
cilities for instruction in the higher
branches of an English education, and
in such of the modern foreign languages
as are most useful and common; In
Natural Sciences, Belles Lett res.
Mathematics, Civil and Military Engi
neering, and the Mechanic Arts ; so ns
to qualify students therein for the vari
ous avocations of life."
Tlie charter transfers ?''allthe real aqfl
personal property of every nature and
kind whatsoever," to the new Board of
Trustees. Besides the real estate, ap
paratus, libraries, etc., the new College
will therefore start with all the endow
ment funds now belonging to each Col
lege, increased by the donation of the
Key. Dr. Beatty, above named. It is
expected that there will lie liberal dona
tions from other quarters also, for fur
nishing such additional apparatus and
libraries, and putting up such addition
al buildings both at Washington and at
Canonsburg, as the wants of the new in
stitution may demand.
Though the united College will not be
under the ecclesiastical control of any
I one denomination of Christians, 4,the
cultivation and advancement of Moral
! ity and Keligion," as well as "of Liter
I ature and Science," are its avowed ob
jects, and its management will be prac
tically under Presbyterian influence,
| as has always been the case with both
! the Colleges"thus to be united. It is the
I expressed intention, however, of those
? most nearly concerned, to pursue such
1 a course as will be adapted to enlist the
cordial co-operation of all depomina
i tions of Presbyterians, and other evan
' gelical Christians, as far as practicable
] in this important enterprise.
Thus have the longstanding rivalries
and jealousies of these neighboring
Colleges been removed, and tneir con
flicting interests happily adjusted; ifi
not in the way which may seem best j
"to them that'are without, yet in the ,
way which seemed best, under the eir-\
cuiliAtancc*, to those best acquainted!
with the real nature and practical diffi-j
culties of the case. It is to be hoped j
that the numerous Alumni, patrons [
and friends of both the Colleges, that j
have been, will all see eye to eye; and j
that, under the Divine* blessing, the|
course of the united College, that i* to \
be. will be onward and upward in use-.j
fulness and honor. '.John w. Scott.
President of Washington College.
The republic of Switzerland has
naturally felt a warm sympathy with
us in our national struggle. Mr. Fogg,
our minister at Berne, has sent to Sec
retary Seward two large and elegant
manuscript volumes, containing over
three hundred addresses of sympathy,
condolence and congratulation, adopt
ed by various cantonal and municipal
governments and public associations
during the war. They embrace the
names of most of the civil and military !
officials of the country, and represent
the general feeling of the Swiss people.j
Mr. Fogg's letter to Mr. Seward con
cludes with an expression of the hope
that these memorials and addresses will
be sacredly preserved in the state de
partment, as evidence of the similarity;
of sentiments and aspirations between'
the people of Switzerland and those of j
the United States.
A COURKSPOXPKNT of th? TrOV Whig
says, the Chicago University, now in
the course of erection, will be one?of
the finest institutions of learning in
the country, and it is Intended to build
upon1 it a telescope, which .-will exceed
any thing of the kind in the world.
A fellow In Aroostook county, Me.,
answered a New York advertisement^
representing that he could ftirnish any
person with a wife. The advertiser re
plied, directing the writer to a neighbor
ing asylum for idiots! The same youth
-not at all abashed, whose name is John
Morris, speaks of himself as follows:
"I am eighteen years old, have a good
set of teeth, and believe in Andy John
Lson, the Star?Spangled Banner, and the
4th of July. I have taken up a State
lot, cleared up eighteen iacres last year,
and seded ten of it down: My buckwheat
looks ft nit-rate,.and the oats_and pota
toes are bully. I have got nine sheep,
a two-year old bull and two heifers, be
side a house and barn. I want to get
married. I want to buy bread and bnt
ter, hoop skirts und waterfalls for some
person of the female persuasion during
my life. That's what's the matter with
me. But I don't know how to do it."
The New Hampshire Superior Court
