Tbev desire no other form or fact of govern

Doubtless ibis popular wilt has reaohed the

constitutional legislation, to change the re

control. Mow be preserves, ea to that, a die

The psople demand the territory aa it was, the
Government aa it is, and no meddling with the
area of tbe one or tbe functions of the other,
by any party, with any force, by any laws, or
for any purpose, in the interest of any species
or philanthropy, or for toe bonenl of any race,
red, white, or black!
But, sir, I do not complain thai the gentleman
baa omitted In bis resolutions any expression as
to preserving tbe rights, (quality and dignity of
the tstaica under tne uonatitnuon. - Wbo would
believe that eucb expressions were sincere, after

No Arbitrary Arrests in the War
No Arbitrary Arrests in the War of 1812.
Ia the war of 1813 with Great Britain, we
were engaged with a powerful foe, our superior
in wraith and in population a foe who had
command of tbe ocean. We are now engaged
in a oivil war with an enemy occupying another
portion of Ibe asms country, without a navy
and without ' means at ail comparable to our
own. Daring tbe progress of the war of 1812,
ths Administration waa greatly embarrassed Io
its finances: and it had to meet disaffection and
opposition in a large, wealthy, and populous
portion of the Union. Had the National Gov.
emmeut then attempted the policy pfj arbitrary
surest on mere suspicion because men were
opposed (p the war, a revolt and secession from
the Union would have taken place In New Eng
land. 'The fathers of those Eastern Abolition
ists who no w attempt to justify the violations
of personal liberty by wholesale orders for in
discriminate arreita by provost marshals scat'
tared through the commuuity, would have risen
in rebellion against the Government, and de
clared their eternal separation from the Union
sooner than submission to such high-handed
tyranny and oppression.
Miserable Quacks and Practical Disunionists.
Tbe fanatics in Congress do not agree in tbe
reasons by which they were governed in voting
to admit the bogus State of West Virginia,
which by their reoent legislation they have at
tempted. Some hold with TaaD.STiviirs, that
it is not by virtue of any provision In tbe Con
stitution that they admit her, but to use his
lapguage "under our absolote power wbicb the
laws of war give us In -the circumstances in
which we are placed," wnile others hold that
all tbe preliminary proceedings are strictly con
stitutional. . Differing thus radically they yet
arrive at the same conclusion, and vote as a
unit to admit the bogus State of West Virginia,
the whole proceeding from beginning to end
being one of the grandeat humbugs of this pro
line agei Every man who voted for this pro
oeedlng Ia Congress is just as much a secession.

"The Draft a Failure."
Under this caption the Cleveland HrroWhad
an article the other day. saying that in a num
ber of ths States the draft haa proved pretty
much of failure. It oltes as instances Penn
sylvania. Marvland. Connecticut. Massachusetts
and New York. In the Keystone State, it says
tbe draft has been a postponement ana a farce.
In Connecticut, of 1212 drafted ia the different
towns, only 218, Including principals and sub
ttnt-. have been mustered into the service
In Massachusetts the draft has beea postponed
four timesand probably will not be made at
all.' In New York, the Ji"raM says, drafting
haa been faraioal and nothing slss, audio Mary

may aa well be told. The finest army that ever
trod the eartb. possessing superior arms, largs
and small, and with all the applienoes and re
courses pi war t command, haa suffered a de
cided repulse at tbe hands of a half naked, half
starved, hair armed toe.

or the position which tbe authorities at Wash

nsa of the opportunity. Tbie route to Richmond
waa the very one which the insurgent chiefs
desired our Government to select. It abounds
with natural dlflloulliee, and' the Wae Depart
ment bapetmtttd the. eparny to add so many
artificial obstructions, that tbe oampalgn in
Virginia this winter is likely to prove a failure.
' Tha start of 4bia oamDisn is the story of the
Chlckabominy, Harrison's Landing and Autie
tam repeated. Reinforcements were deliber
ately and pertinaciously withheld from Model-
Ian previous to tne seven oaj nino uo.uro

After tbe terrib e battle of Antletam, wbicb,

the eoemy to retreat over tbe Potomac, needful
supplies were withheld from hiat, which pre
vented the rapid pared! of Lea; and when be
waa at length in close proximity to the foe, and
would have compelled hlmao fight or abandon
Richmond, he was auddrary removed from tbe
com mood of tbe army.! The strong probability
Is that, bad be been permitted td .continue hie
own course, he would have been In possession
ot the rebel oanital within week. But be was
stripped of his command tor polltioal reasons
by the imbeciles at Washington, and the base
of operations was changed to Aqula Creek a
course betraying tbe same vacillation and blind
groping in tbe drkwhloh had been previously
exhibited in tbe oaae of McDowell's army. Mo
Clellau was ordsred to sdvance by the valley of
Virginia toward Uordonsriiie. Tnat plan is
abandoned, and another la substituted which is

Creek to Fredericksburg ready, ia order for the
speedy transportation ot supplies,' nothing had
been done when General Buraside arrived, and,
worse still, ths pontoons for crossing the river
were not there , This red tap negleot wae so
flagrant as to cause General Burnside himself
to repair to Washington to lemonsuate citn

would have captured rrederioxabnrg without a
struggle, occupied tbe heights beyond without
any difficulty, and prooaniy wouta nave oeen in
Richmond before now, had supporting move
ment at the same time been made on the James
river. The ground behind Fredericksburg waa
tben unfortified, aud the city was held only by
a handful of rebela. Tbe delay wae fatal.
The result is repulss, great lost of life, and
probably greater loss in the future. .The War

thoroughly aroused, and, in view of the direot
and fearful responsibilities of tbe Government

We certainly had no raving philanthropists
among us howling for a war of extermination
on the colonist. But there were "King's
friends," wno, like tne Aboutionlats or tbe
present day, advocated and defended tbe em
ployment against the " rebels" of ',' every
means tbat God and nature put into our

Suffolk, in the House of Peers, justified en
rolling the savage tribes of Indians among ths
mitten military forces, tie proposed to license
massacres that would have spared neither wo
man nor child. The speech in which Chatham
denounced this unscrupulous and bloodthirsty
measure Is one of those whlcn have made bis

at first seem possible. It was In th hospital,
where rested th gallant. Hooker, that I learned

saving th live of oar soldiers, fat national

from this article. " -
It is wsll known th effect of burnt gunpow
der and excitement is thirst, which added to th
loss of blood In lb wounded, creates tha n
ossslty of a reviving stimulant. In this par
tlcnlar hospital, tha pbyslolan were allowing
their patients to drink Plantation Bitters, other
wise called 8. T. 18C0 X,"and although th
wounded ar most numerous here this dl
vision having opened th fight at 5 In th morn
ing lb men were mostly composed, and there
was vsry little fainting. Tb arliols acts upon
tb stomaoh and nerve In a most Incomprehen
sible manner, auperior to brandy, and without
subsequent stupefying reaotion. It originated
In tb West Indies, oompoeed of tbe celebrated

of appetite, : disordered liver, Intermittent fe

tbe following reply i , . .

Agent of, tte.f
' Dear Sir In reply to your communication,
offering us "Fifty thousand dollar for th re
olpe ttnd light to make the Plantation, Bitter
for yoor hospital purposes daring th war," we
beg to aay, your price is a liberal one, consid
ering it wonld cost us nothing to comply, and
tbat otherwise we oan derive no revenue from
the Southern States; but, sir, our duties to our
Oovernment and our ideas of consistency
wonld not allow us to entertain it, although it
might plaaae na to assusge the sufferings of
your misguided followers.
Very respectfully, yours,
, . P. H. DRAKE dc CO.
These gentlemen give the history of certain
ingredient of their article for over two hand
red years Allowing that through all changes
of tha medical profession and it practitioners,
strength, composure and cheerfulness have been
derived from thee source. Dr. Woods in th
Washington Hospital informed me that one
patient was fast sinking'and crasy, and had not
slept an hour for two weeks, until the Plants
tlon Bittera came t) his knowledge, when one
day's trial gave bim a night's rest, and h was
now fast reeoverlng. . I am surprised onr Gov.
ernment has not equaled Jefferson Davis in en
ergy, and adopted this invaluable article in all
our hospitals. Tbe weak soldiers cling to it
like a brother. As a lay member, I can bear
witness tt Is "good to take," and affords more
energy and life than anything I evsr tried
Success to the Plantation Bitters.
. Bat I have digressed. In my next I shall
speak of gathering In the wounded, burying (he
LOST. In Oolambne on tb 10th Instant, a small
SOBBEL UaiaB, a boot lea or eleven year old,
with a white stripe In her forehead, her right eye (lightly
hart and a little dim, and the soar of a ent on one of the
ankle of htr foro-lege. Th mar waa bitched near
Savage' Jewelry store, and escaped or waa stolen. She
had on a saddle, blanket, bridle and martingale.
Any information that may lead to th reoorery of th
mar, glTen to tbe anderalgned, at hi rasldtno on mil
eat of Colombo, on ths Johnstown road, or left at the
Diatesman omoe, win n nanasomeiy rewarded.
