: 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. Let us then with resolute hearts
and hands tmpport the government, and w
may anuuipaic u pcoly ami glorious In-1

There are other considerations involved
which we have not enumerated in the above
MnUnieht. 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? The negative
answer will bo written in history bv twelve
hundred thousand hnyoncts.

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

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 !

now nearly full, and will be ready to march
within a fortnight; and tho other regiments
are filling up so fast us to leave no doubt
that, they will be complete at an early day.
Notwithstanding the numerous expenses
incident to every stage ot the recruiting
service, only a trifle over two-thirds of the
Sfil.OOO.OOO appropriated by the Legislature
has been expended up lo this time, and it is
probable that there .will bo a handsome
