The Union £t;Ae Convention of Peaneyl*
vanic, which met at Philadelphia on the 3Sth,
adopted a resolution instructing their delega
tion to support Mr. Lincoln for the Presi
dency, opposing the postponement of the
Baltimore Convention, and declaring, what
every loyal man concedes, that the re-dee
tion of Lincoln would he one of the hardest
blows that could be inflicted on the rebels.
Tl.c action of Pennsylvania will commend
itself to the whole country, as the right
Im.-is for future political action with reference
to the Presidency. There must be no change
of s.diiiintbtretion or of policy. New men,
without experience, will only Inaugurate
u , u themes tending to delay the wax and
clog wholesome legislation. It Is the popu
lar will, reflected through the resolutions.of
their servants in legislatures end convcn*
tiobe from Maine to Oregon, that Abmham
Lincoln remain where he is and finish np
both rebels and rebellion.
A dispatch from Admiral Porter foota up
our losses in the late battles nca~ Pleasant
Jlllle- as follows: total loss 3,400 men, of
which number three hundred were killed;
twenty pieces of artillery, a large quantity
of small arms, several hundred wagons, a
lirtt-clasc gunboat, the Eastport, and, a dls-
•patch to the N. Y. Brrald adds, a Paymaster’s
cafe containing a million dollars increen
backs which will prove a godsend to the Im
poverished coffers of the rebels—if the story
be true—-a doubt eminently practice , consid
ering the source from which the story em
anates.
The predatory bands of Forrest's guerillas
elated bv recent successes, are dally growing
•bolder.' On the night o! the 27th, a gang of
them crossed the river into Indiana, a short
distance below Madison, burned *a trading
boat and stole a flock of sheep and cattle.
The stringent Regulation code should be car
ried out in every instance when one of these
thieves and butchers is caught—death by
hanging to the first tree.
It v.as thought on all sides that Wash
burne’s proposition, to tax whisky on hand,
was dead and buried, but at the last moment
it suddenly sprung into vigorous life and was
adopted as a part of the new tax law, by ten
majority. It reads as follows:
•• That all spirits of domestic production, and
held for saloon the let of May, ISA and upon
which no tax shall hare been paid, shall be subject
la a dutr of 50 cents per gallon; and on all each
eiilrltt- on hand for sate, on which a prior duty shall
have been i«ld, a duty of 80 cento per gallon; pro
vided that bona fide retail dealers in spirits, duly
licensed, shall not be taxed on their stoca on band,
whoi-c quantity on hand docs not exceed two bar-
As almost every gallon ol whisky on hand
has paid but 20 cents tax, nnd as the tax trill
be SI.OO after May 1, the 80 cents imposed by
Wushbume’s amendment will still leave 50
cents prefit to the holders, distillers, and
ppccnlatore, so that they will not, as a class,
be very badly off, es the matter now stands.
'What the fate of the amendment will be in
the Senate, is doubtful, as that body has here
tofore strenuously resisted the imposition of
any excise on liquors on hand.
Each day brings ns nearer to the great bat
tle of the war which must soon be fought In
Virginia—a buttle which we believe will be
one of the most terrible ever recorded in
history. Both Grant and Lee are massing
their forces lor the shock. From Florida,
Charleston, Lynchburg, Wilmington and
all available points, the rebel troops are
burning to the Rapidan in defence of the
rtbei capital. From the North our troops
.ijchnrotogte the front to take partln the
great contest. The campaign is culmi
nating rapidly, at a day or an
hour may bring us the tidings that
the strife has commenced. We look for
ward to victory, notuuderratingthestrength,
fcVUI and bravery of the rebels. McClellan
itm is rooted out of the army. Its physical

lt has confidence In the commanding Gen
tral andhetakes the field unhampered with

tl ill and prestige of success, we anticipate a
victory which shall give this rebellion the
finishing blow. i
A reconuolesance was made yesterday as
far as Madison Court House, In Virginia,
which resulted in the capturing of thirty
prisoners, driving the rebels out of the town
and Us subsequent destruction.
The rumor that Gen. Grant had requested,
•Mid the President refused the superseding of
Gen Banks is denied. The President asserts
thatGcn. Grant is sole master of the armies
in the field, and between the two the most
cordial relations exist.
The House has adopted a resolution to in

the WASnBIIBNB CHIIX.
The speculators In ■whisky were seized yes
icriav morning with a sudden indisposition,
immediately ufter rending the Washington
di-vatchcs. The malady Is not exactly a
„cw one, and ailhongh it is generally pro
nonneed incurable, it is not always iitah It
has been named by professlonnl men the
Washbnmc ChUl,” irom tho pccuUar symp
toms manifested by the victims being taken
•with a sudden coldness of the toes—a violent
palpitation of the heart—and a chilly sweat
on the forehead, accompanied by a fearful
collapse of the ‘internal revenue.” The
number attached by this disease was very
large, and at one time it looked as if the
majority of cases would prove fatal; but
fortunately for them the chill subsided, and
as we go to press a large number of the
worst cases were In a state of convalescence.
But the whisky-men were not the only par
ties who suffered Irom this strange malady.
It affected hankers, brokers and money
c'l ngcrs generally; and It was noticeable
that some of these were seised with the
“ chill” in a more violent form than any
others. Their sufferings were too Intense to
lie alleviated by the usual remedies known in
the pbannacopn-ia, and resort had to he made
to strong mental msnipulations, which for
tunately relieved them greatly. Much ben
cflt was derived by all the sufferers from re*
jeated lotions of telegraphic balsam, import
ed from Washington, where the disease orig
inated, and where it has been more success
fully treated than In these parts.
The market forhighwines opened “panicky”
at a decline of 12 ilSc per gallon, with sales
as low as £LOS. Towards the close, how
ever, It rallied, and In the evening prices ran
up as high as £l.lo—closing at £Llsjl.ls>f.

On Monday while the corps of Gen. Burnside was ]

for reassembling arrived, there were scarce any
members present except the Speaker, andAfesars.

considerable merriment, hnt the clerks were not
to be found, and ihc Tex bill itself and the Speak*
cris gavel wire' locked np. However, things
went on with the lew present, bat the
spectacle was humiliating. In Committee
of the Whole, I am glad to notice that
every disposition is manitested to lay on the taxes,
1 do not see why the United States cannot raise as
large a revenue as Great Britain. England itself
pays the principal portion of the revenno of Great
Britain. Yet last year that nation raised a revenue
of $350,000,000 is gold, equal to sooo,' 00,000 in our
paper currency, and this for the expenses of a mere
peace establishment. During the year 2SG3 oar
total revenue from taxes was $;11.593.t65.45 l and
the expenditure StM.7OO/ 95A3, showing that
nearly elx>eeventbs was raised by borrowing. A
moment's reflection will show that this state of
financial sfialrs cannot long continue, without a
collapse.

An officer who was out to the front yesterday in
forms me that our army is in excellent condition.
Mud occupies a very favorable position. He was
so for In the advance that be could see Leo’s army
streichingoQt for miles to bar the way to tbs rebel
capital. The rumor that we bad retired from War
rtnton is contradicted, although there are reports
that Lee is ftellng Meade’s flanks with bodies of
Stuart’s cavalrv. and that one of them hod actually
occupied Warfenton (a railroad outpost). Gen
eral Grant is concentrating a large force here
and at Fortre?s Monroe. A brigade left for that
ruarter yrsterdav, among them the 39th Illinois.
Col Osborne. R'ejnforccmrar.e have also been or
-irred up from Florida and South Carolina. Gen.
GiTmorc asked for reinforcements, probably for
offensive ©Derations, but Gen. Grant not only
denied them, but ordered troops from Gen. G. a
department. Gen. Grant plainly perceives that
Lee’s army Is the head and front of the rebellion,
and that it mutt be conquered belore the rebellion
can be subdued. There is to be no more hacking
awuv at the extremities until the bead and trancle
are attended to. I bear that the colored troops arc
for tfcc present to man the fortifications in the rear
of Washington, on the other side of the Potomac.

CONDITION OP THE VtSGINIA AR3CT.
Gentlemen familiar with the Army of the Poto
mac daring the last two or three years, who have
recently returned from the front, where they en
joyed ample opportunities of intercourse with both
officers and men, report that ilcClellattlsia Is (*■
tirely rooted out of the army, and that the utmost
harmony prevails among officers of all grades, and
the utmost confidence Is felt In the Commanding
General by men in all ranks, and in his power to
whip the enemy-when the opportunity offers.
JTbere is only.onc single exception to this rule—-a
The physical as well
as the moral healthSf the army is excellent, the
reports showing only one and ono-fourth per cent
of disease against seven per cent at this time last
year. Some brigades have not even seen an hos
pital, and the Commander in response to an in.
qniryfrom headquarters, said they had prepared
no hospital accommodations, because there was no
sick within their commands.
nnrr.B oP MADISON CODHT HOUSE.
We have the following Irom the Army of the Po-
lomac:
Ccutftxb, April S9.—A cavalry force made a
reconnoitring expedition to Madison Court House
yesterday. It was reported at Gen. Grant’s head
quarters that they came upon a small party ot the
enemy, drove them out of town, and captured thir
ty prisoners. The town was fired. No intelli
gence of the movements of the enemy in the Shen
andoah Valley has reached the army headquarters.
CUBBENCT MATTERS.
. After defeating the Finance Committee to-day,
by passing the bill for a branch mint in Oregon,
the Somite took up the Currency bill. Daring the
day Mr. Pomeroy's amendment, exempting from
taxation so much of the capital stotk of banks as
is invested in government bonds, was rejected by
a vole of 11 to SS; and Mr, HowanTfl amendment*
that State taxation shall be only lor the purposes
of the Slate In which the bank is located, was re
jected by the same vote. No vote has yet been
taken on the main question between the Finance
Committee amendment and the provision of the
bill as it from the House, but the votes and
debate seem to Indicate that the Finance Commit
tee will be sustained.
MYSTERIOUS EEOOKe.
Mr. Brooks said that he shonld print in his newa-
paper his remarks about the Treasury Department
in general and the head Clerk of the Printing Bu
reau In the same In particular, which the House
refused to give him an unanimous consent to de
liver. To-day, he said that he wanted to describe
org'es in the Clerk’s Bureau and to tell things
which would render it prop.r that the galleries
should be cleared of ladies. He intimated that the
resolution proposed by Mr. Garfield, as a substi
tute for his resolution of Inquiry, providing for
Brook’s examination on all points before the Com

population of 85,000 Union men, 15,003 to 18,000
have stolen aw from homo and enlisted in the
Union army in Kentucky; that rebels, in 1801, took
CO.COO hogs, *-d other stock In proportion; that
r-uixslde's Sherman’s and Loagstreet’s armies
have exhausted the remaining supplies, and that,
perhaps, not five per cent of the aecustoroedbreadth
of wheat can be sown this spring, the fences being
destroyed and farms left desolate, and not even
with a supply of seed for common farm products. It
atk?: Ist. The prompt payment of claims against

Messrs. WILSON, FESSENDEN and other* j
thought the resolution had best not be adopted
now. ;
Hr. HENDERSON eaid that information on thj
subject was desired now, as it would bear on tb]
bills pending before this body, and this was tl <
only authentic way to obtainit. He had read Ir3
tens tbe last three days from tbe Bed River, eayny
that our defeat there was on account of specula
tion. Tbe cavalry In advance on that occasion
numbering MW men, had 265 wagons, which •>.
came entangled and confused and brought on a!-,
aster. . .
Hr. WIT SON wanScu to know If vui-*;
eberged that the Red River expedition was
t«kcn for the mere purpose of gathering cotton.
Mr. HENDERSON said no such thing. He
merely wished to know what the brigade of cav
alry wanted with 265 wagons, unless It was to
catber nn ifce products of the country.
Mr. CONNESS stated, on what he considered
the hi sheet authority, that these wagons were pan
of the regular ttaln of the army, and whatever
might have been the defect of generalship which
brought them there, the statement that they
were intended to bring in cotton was not correct,
Mr. HENDERSON made no charges WmsclL but
It was singular that the disaster had followed tie
statements and predictions of the newspaper
writers. He rend a letter from Grand Ecore datrd
tour days belore the battle, alleging a conflict of
authority between Gen. Banks and Admiral ror.tr,
and stating that the latter was seizing cotton »n
lard as a naval pnze, and predicting disaster.
Mr. CONNESS denounced the statement readns
