Not again will such another trial pass over us, until the light of civilization wanes, and the darkness of national corrup tion obscures political vision. : NoW then it becomes the duly of every citizen to uphold and support the Admin , istratiou. Certainly in government ever had higher claims on the respect ami confidence of its subjects. Might months ao, on as sinning ollice, it found the people of the free states divided in opinion, and split up by faction. The navy had been designedly scattered to the most distant seas; the small army had been divided and placed in posi tions in which weakness, corruption and treachery would decimate it; the national armories had been plundered; the national treasury was in a condition of insolvency, and each departmental ollice tilled with mis creants who regarded their oath lo support the government, as would a Thug or a Se poy. Such was the condition of things on Mr. Lincoln's advent to ollice. AVhat then is the present state of the ease? The people of the free states are united I'opublicans and I'cniocnits march shoulder to shoulder, to the battle, and their cry is the "I'nion and the Constitution, it must and shall be preserved." A navy of some three hundred armed vessels have been lilted out, and now guard the Atlantic coast from Ma ryland to Mexico. An army ol nearly live hundred thousand men has been raised, equipped and disciplined, and are now near ly nil ready to advance on the enemy. Arms, ammunition and military stores have been accumulating in large quantities at various points. The treasury has been replenished ttnd its credit established, with a skill and readiness only surpassed by one example in modern times. Itesults all but supcr r.nnian have thus been accomplished, and nhould the conduct of the government in the future correspond with its aels in the past, Mr. Lincoln and his Cabiuefwill command the confidence of every true hearted Ameri can, and the admiration of all civilized nations.

The net of Congress, approved July '2'2d, iHtil, provides (lint "Kvcry voluii- age for every twenty miles travel from his place of enrollment to Ihe place of muster, and when honorably discharged an allow ance at the same rate from the place of his discharge to Ihe place of his enrollment." Moreover, in regard lo pensions for the wounded, and provision for tho widows of soldiers killed in battle, and in every other essential particular, tho entire volunteer force is placed upon an equal footing with the regular army. Should ll future progress of our nation al affairs, during Ihe coming fall and winter, induce an overwhelming enlistment of re cruits, to such an extent us to insure (Ins termination of the war, within the period of three or six months from the present writing, it must be borne in mind by the soldier that his bounty of iiflOO in cash, already provid ed, and I (ill acres of land, which will prob ably be granted at the coming session of Congress, will remain Ihe same. The liber ality of the (ioverumeiit to its armies is un equalled in the annals of the world. Above all things a lofty sense of patriot ism should animate (he ranks of the volun teers. There are considerations in reference to the protection and preservation of our free institutions far above the measurement of gold, lo inspire the I'nion soldiery. The war is upon us there is no time for supcr (liloiis controvei sy. The position of the 'iiion armies is purely defensive ; occasion al reverses, of course, must be expected; they are incidental to all wars; but victory is certain in the cud; truth and correct polit ical principles are invincible they are bound to conquer, It is too late in the day for Ihv rebel conspirators to erect a govern ment upon Ihe exclusive basis of slavery. The leadi rs, in the start of Ihe rebellion, made a sad mistake in natural philosophy. They built up the delusive dream of the Southern Confederacy upon the false suppo sition that a white man with a negro upon his back in the slave Stales, was equal, in commerce ami arms, to the free men of the North. The mistake was fundamental, and will prove fatal. In every possible view that can be taken of the rebellion, it is an unjustifiable outrage upon the rights of man and the cause of civil liberty. It is impos sible for a slave government to arise on the n,js r ,ir Constitution, without a coin promise and important forfeiture of its prin ciples. The contest is narrowed down ton simple proposition, to-wil: shall the (ioverumeiit and Constitution of the United Stales be subverted by force of arms?

We may premise, however, that Individual! who circulated thia story knew it. to be (also at the time. A friend In the South hat! sent im a paper, in the interest of tho rebel cniiso, which in a lengthy article tries to make it appear thtttthe revolution of '(Band the rebellion of '01 are in principle Ihe same! This idea has also been expressed by the I'uyton JCmpirt and other papers of alike character, in Ohio. Now, while we nre willing to admit that tho colo nists rebelled against their government, and tho secessionists have revolted against theirs, we can seo no more similarity be tween the two than exists between a lamb and an rhinoceroM. Tho revolutionary war of the early settlers, waged for liberty, hadH its glorious fruition in the very government which the rebels are seeking to destroyi In establishing their government our ances tors made human freedom its foundation and keystone, mid it is this government the rebels are trying lo destroy, with a view to construct a new one, in which slavery shall he the controlling element. Washington and his compatriots undeniably fought only for freedom, but. Jeff. Davis ,v Co. fight to perpetuate and extend slavery. Tho rebels talk much of their rights, but these are Ihe rights which aristocrats always claim those of domineering over inferiors. Tho right or wrong of slavery has nothing to do with our present statement of the case; what wo insist on is tho simple fact, that in the principles and spirit inspirim; them, the war of the colonists and that of the seces sionists are utterly and diametrically hostile to each other. How, indeed, could it possi bly be otherwise, when Ihe rebels are war ring against Iho very govornineiit which our liberty loving fathers established? The men of '(! made war because they were re fused the right of self-government. Their war secured to them and their children this right. Is it a right? If not, the revolution ary fathers were wrong. Hut if it is a right, what is it except the right to govern, and the justice of the government to popular majorities? The fact demonstrates that it is a war against a government of majorities against the only principle in wdiich Ihe self government of any people is possible. Our fore fathers rebelled in order lo establish a republic, but the rebels are trying to sub vert it. Tho former believed that a popu lar form of government would secure liber ty to the citizen, but the rebels have discov ered that the liberty they seek will never be conceded to thciii by the people. Tho grievanco of tho colonists was that they were not represented in tho ruling power. The rebels do not complain on this point, for they admit that the slave stales had a larger proportional representation in Con gress than Iho free slates, liming tho his tory of the country they have wielded a con trolling power in tho government for more than two-thirds of the tiinc;und not until they were transforming the Union into a slave and cotton copartnership, did Iho other members of the firm seriously remonstrate. No! withstanding the greater deference paid them and the superior representation allow ed them, when they litul they can no longer rule the nation, they rebel. The American revolution was a war of Ihe people against an aristocracy; but the southern rebellion is the war of an aristocracy against the peo ple, in the right ol sell-government. Honor to Ohio. A Kentucky correspondent writing from Frankfort to tho SVoc Journal, says: Wo can never repay the gratitude wo feel toward Ohio for her promptness in rush ing to our relief. All honor is duo to your gallant State and your bravo soldiers. When the war is over, and the rebellion crushed, Kentucky will take pride in expressing her profound gratitude in sonic appropriate and durable form she will erect some monu ment to Ihe bravery of Ohio which will glit ter in the sun-light of Heaven, and inspire all coining generations with admiration for the people who coino to defend her in the hour of need. Hef"re this war closes these two states will be bound together by indis oluble bonds. All past animosities will bu j forgotten and they will emulate each other only in acts ot kindness and brotherly love. We are all linked in one destiny and must rise or fall together. We must have but one constitution, one llag and one (Sod. The Election. The elcctiou in this county, on Tuesday, passed oil' with remarkable quietness, and the number of votes polled does not reach one-half the usual number. In this town ship, last fall, the vote was something over 100, while in no case this year does it reach more than 181). There were several reasons for this lack of interest at the polls ; the principal of which was the fact that there was no local opposition, and then almost ev ery one felt as though the Slate Ticket was safe without their vote. If the vote in oth er counties approximates anything near the sweeping majority given for the Union Ticket, in this county, Tod's majority in the State, can no', fall much short of 100,000 !
