not by tfilcolition. ; ,
0 The next few months must determine
fietber th'.a wtir shall find a speed; end,
or linger on for yeara. United'and vigor
ous action among all loyal men will soon
end'the strife. Harmony is wanted ii? ail
the loyal 8tates. This will be more power
ful for good at the present moment than
two hundred thousand additional volun
teers Fanning the coals of party organi
zations wi'l not prodnee. harmony. It is
tbo doty, therefore, ot every man who
would serve bis Country, to Torget old is',

theideinands Of tbe present day. The ob
ligations of tbie hour ire sufficient for any
man, n itbont hitchibg himself to the bur
derfs of old contests. It should be tbe first
desire of all to promote' harmony among
those who profess'to love their country, and
then with activity tempered by prudonce,
and firtxjdess with moderation; we may ei
p?t ? speedy peace. But if the loyal
States this fall should be given up tt> the
control of partisan fictions, tbe country
will have in prospect only a sea of troubles.
Tbe contest' will/linger on, not in organized
warfare, but In predatory bands, beaded by
the boldest and most desperate of the rebel
leaders; in tbe bope that their old party
frieuds will once more control the Govern
ment, and restore them, unrepentant and
still coveredwitb tbe blood of loyal men,
to a full share of the favors of that Gov
ernment which they had despetately at
tempted to destroy.
. What would be our condition as a peo
ple, if It were possible for Mr. Vallandigham
to be made President to-morrow? This is
a question which should be solemnly pon
dered by all those who would thoughtlessly
rush into a revival of the old Democratic
pArty. Ho and just such men as'lie is, are
tbe life arid soul and activity of every such
effort If President, would heusetbepow
?r of tbe Government to drive armed and
bloody handed rebels to the wall*? Do we
not know, have we not every reason to be
lieve that he would be rejoiced'to see those
rebel cohorts drivb half tbe population of
tbo free States' Into tbe wilds of Canada,
and seize upon'tbo whole Union? This
would be tbe only consummation tbat he
ever lias orvever can heartily desire. He
bas no emotion that is not centered in the
rebel camp. He never bas nnd be never
will spend a thought pr lift a hand to crush
this rebellion. Notwithstanding tbe events
ol tbe last year, and nil the blood that has
been shed, tbis prime leader ot a renewal
of old'party strifes, would rejoice above nil
things to see Jfeff; Davis forthwith and tri
umphantly installed in President Lincoln's
place. Tbat is "tbe old Union as it was"
tbat he dreams of and prays for,'if it be
possible for sucb a man to pray.
Tbo masses of.tbo old Democratic party
in Ohio are loyal and honest. It is to them
tbat we would address ourselves, and Ear
nestly call upon them to beware of the
/dots nnd schemes of the Vallaodlgham 6f
their old party. Better follow the Tods
and-Dorseys of their old loaders, known to'
bo certainly iu earnest in putting down re
bellion; while, as to tbe Vallandlghams, at
the very leaBt, no guarantee of earnestness
has ever been given, even if they do not
secretly sympathize with the rebels.
Is Ilalleclc Reinforcing BIcClellaia t
[From the fiav York Times.)
The wbole country has- been puzzling;
itself with the inquiry ns to'-wliat has be
come of Beauregard's army, so lately at
Corinth. The anxiety springs chiefly out
of tbe fear that it may turn up at Richmond
suddenly, to increase still further tbe nu
merical superiority of the enemy over the
forces under Gen. McClellan. This anxiety
would be relieved at once, if we knew that
tbe Union army of the West was beingem
ployed in any way to operate as reinforce
ments to McClellan, by taking n part in the
general programme of movements against
Richmond. We propose calling attention
to some facts which suggest the stiong prob
ability, at least, that such a movement is
be ing made by Gen. Halleclc.
iOur news from Tennessee wonld seem to
indicate tbe' beginning of a combined move
ment1 between the troops nuder General
Morgan, moving southward from Cumber
land Gap toward Kboxville, and the force!
under General Mitchell moving eastwardto
ward the same'destinntion. Among the Im
mediately .valuable results flowing from
the rebel evacuation of-jOorinth, was the
fact that it left-General Witchel compara
tively free for such>a demonstration. Prior
to that period Mitchel was occupied princi
pally in watching the right flank of tbe reb
el army. .Fr^ed from Beauregard's presence
and with bU.railr?Rd lines ofcommunioa
tion and supply. protected by the occupa
tion of UempbU) and a, point on the Mobile
?y(d Ohio Railroad, llalleck oould at once
spare General Buall^corps to retrace their
steps and move toward Hast Tennessee.?
This, seems, so perfectly natural a move
ment,.that wejuclipe tQ accept the Hpcar
acy of the announcement made on the faith
or,a prirsle.letter received nl'biladelpbia,
that "General Bnel has started with bis
wholeitrmyfor East Tennessee, Wa.Huuts
ville.!'., ller* wp have the initial,points of i
& new campaign* on the part of our army of
the West.??
When General.Halleok found that Beau
regard bad abandoned Corinth without'fnll
ing back uponvGran^ J unction, . he < doubt-.
less saw at onpe thatithe rebel leaders b?|l
Melded upon a, complete change of policy,
find were determined to unite their differ
ent armies, w|tb ? view o(.lrylngAbe pos
sibility of forcing one {extended Hue of of
fensive operations ,at some weak point; or
railing in that, to be -in, stronger position
for defence, and for a prolongation of the

tensive right of our extended line of opera
tions, of wbicb Norfolk .would be the ex
treme left?said line Embracing tbe arm;
before Richmond, tbe forces In and about
.Washington, and tbe various bodies in the
Valley of the Shenandoah. As Gen. Buell's
forces advance eastward, the troops now
under Fremont and Sigel - leaving tbe
three months' men and a few sailors' bat
teries to guard Harper's Ferry?may pnsb
on to the occupation of Lyncbburgh,
while General Banks operates toward
Gordonjville on the eastern' side of
tbe Blue Ridge. If , General Mc
Clellan takes Richmond within a week from
the present lime, the combination of move
ments suggested above will be unnecessa
ry, for the occupation of tbe rebel cppit.il
give's comparative qolet at ones to nil the
country north of tbe system of railroads
running east and west from Richmond, and
between tide-water and the longitude of
Lyrichbor^h. If, on the other baud, Beau
regard shall have bad time to. reinforce
Jeff. Davis' army so as to compel General
McClellan to dig his way into Richmond
with pick and spade, t\cn a strongcolumn
from Bnell'sarmy, through East Tennessee
and Southwest Virgiuia, becomes of every
consequence, because it is a reinforcement
from Halleck's army to McClellan's. We
do not not know what are tbe plans of oar
military leaders, but we think therfr are in
dications of such a movement as we have
suggested.
(F.-cm the I'arkeriburg Qfczettfl.]
A Word for the Mew Slate.
We profess only to be tbe editor of a lo
cnl paper, but we are determined to do all
we can to improve and benefit tbe people
among whom we live, wo care not who it
bits or who is soared, who bccomes enemy
or who friend. But troth shall be oar
friend and our standard bearer. Parkers
burg has been a place for some years
She has hail a number of people in her: hut
a few who thought they bad all the prop
erty and could secure their own ease and
comfort, sit ronnd tbe corners, live on tbe
people, aid no enterprise, seek no prosper
ity, are satisfied with tbe way things are
going on, are ready tojump on the wagon,
whether secesh or union carries along;
but try to be on top of the wagon all tbe
time.
We confess we are of a different stripe
this city, If it was properly used
by the people in it, would double in popu
lation and wealth every five years ; .but tbe
only way to make it do so is enterprise,
energy and right, purposes. If rebellion
had succeeded, your prosperity would have
been worth nothing. We should hayo been
a border town ; trade with Ohio, trade on
the river, and of course all western trade
over our railroad would have been stopped.
All our interests would have been washed
out?the man who is now wealthy would
have found himself but little better than
?the serf, unless he had a profession that
would have kept him as one of the ruling
Cla88. *
We yet find many of these grumbling at
the prospect of future taxation? to pay the
national debt. Should not that taxation
make them hate more deeply the infamous
rebellion that bus caused this tax? :.?>But
how lightly sits this tax upon them com
pared with the awful tax opon life, upon
limbs lost, upon senses stunned and bleed
ing, upon ties severed, upon heart strings
broken. Wo may not, as christians, hate
these rebels, but be who bates not the sin
of this rebellion which - has cansed such
?misery, will hereafter have little io hope
for from man or God..
Western Virginia has, by a majority, by
the voice of all-wbO are good, wise;-true,
honest? within the Stntc, severed herself
from the rebellion. Her majority'and
power ore true to tbe State and to tbe
Union. They have moved on step by step
as fast as was safe and constitutional to
secure a State, loyal and honeBt, leaving
the cast to sluff off ? as the rottenness of
the sore that bas infected the body of tbe
State for years.
Do you, then, men of ParkerSburg, of
Wood Ooanty, of Western Virginia, wish
to be safe and have your property secore
and increase, do you wish for certainty in
stead of suspense,' do you wish for pros
perity instead of adversity,-you can only
attain it by bracing every sinew and nerve,
bringing every word and aotion to bear
upon tbe perfection of tbis West Virginia
as a State government, and not only Ibat
but as a State free from slaves or any of tbe

The development and wealth.*of West
Virginia should be one motive tor Congress
to abate her. territorialeiten#ion. i The.
proposed State embraces 48 counties, apg
an area (we.bave not the. figures before us,,
but) not far from 40,000 square mileB, with,
a population of 334,$66 whites, ana not
more than 0,000 slaves, or less than tfyre?
per cent,, which, at ajp, average of,,$300,
and they are not worth one cent to their'
owners anywhere in . Western [Virginia,
would amount tp $2,^00,OpO. , Well, under
the proposed aotion of Congress, this sum
woold.be paid,t'o oitisens of the State for
what would be worth nothing. The'assessed
value of this land and all its improvements
is but $71,000,000. A few minutes figuring'
will tell you tha t there are in in thisterritory 1
25,600,000 acres of land, aud therefore the
whole assessment is less than $3 per acre I
with all :the" improvements upon it and
wealth of tbeSuite The average value of
our lanJ with slaves is not over $2 the
aore. Taking all things, minerals,' water
power, See., Ohio land is not more valuable
than ours, except we have bad slaves and
they have not,. .They, have had education, I
have respected labor, have had equality of I
rights and interests;]rtnd "we1 havonot.?'I
Yet the average of Ohio.lands liy oor stand- |
ard, is $16. the acre. Now, what do lb# |
land-holders in this Stato lose by slavery 1
The $25,600,000 acres of land here are
now worth, with improvements, $71,000,
000; situated as Ohio is they would be I
worth $330,000,000. The landholders of 1
this State then lose $328,000,900 for the I
pitiful sum of $2,700,000 worth of'slaves. I
Nor is this all; the happiness, intelligence I
and moral worth of the people is impaired. 1
Look at the beauty of almost:every farm in I
Ohio. How ninny such do you find in Vir-1
ginia ? Look on wbat'and wliere-you will
and the slave is the corse of our State, few I
as' they are. Let us earnestly work, first I
foronr State government uud then to.get
rid of this incubus on our prosperity and I
increase of population.
