THE ARMY SWORD VOTE which has excit ed great interest, at the N. Y. Sanitary fair was decided in favor of Gen. Grant, by the henvy contributions of the secret " Loyal League" societies, after the public voting j bad closed. The total receipts in the army j •word contest were $544,963. The total re ceipts from all sources, were upwards of 81,000,000. jcarThe bill to remove the Capitol of this State to Philadelphia, has nut yet finalir passed; aad we moßt sincerly hope it will not It ia a change that none of the people of this County have asked for, or want, at least so far as we have heard. Whatever offers the people of Philadelphia may make, as to the public buildings; the change, would certainly result in the addition of a million or two to the State debt, without any corresponding advantage. The increased cost of legislation; the great er temptation to corruption; the additional facilities offered to those who practice if; — which would almost inevitably follow, are ameng considerations that suggest themselves to,as, against the proposed change. Latest War New*. The news by the last evening' 6 mail con firms the reports of the surrender <>l our t.r— ces, to the rebels, at Plymouth North Caro lina on the 20th inst. Our loss in killed wounded and prisoners, is set down at 2750. An attack on Little Washington and New bern ia expected to follow. The Red River battle, instead of being a saLatantial victory to our artns, turns out to he one of the most disastrous defeats of the war, considering the numbers engaged— This great "Cotton raid," as it is called, of Gen. Bank's, has cost Thousands of lives and all the stores, ammunition, guns ic. belong Ing to the expedition. The army of the Potomac arc said to be already in motion ; and a battle may take place at any time. The next great struggle it is thought, will take place on the Rapidaui, where both armies seem to be concentrating. 100,000 Militia, to serve one hundred days, have been called for in Wisconsin, IndianTia, Ohio, and Michigan. No call has yet been issued by Gov. Curtin, but it is rumored that it may shortly be made.

NEAR BRANDY STATION April 16. 1864. MR. EDITOR This was the day appoint-* ed for the review of the 6: h Army Corps, by | Gen. Grant ; but the inevitable rain put its I **to upon the proceeding, and tins tl at • fair did not coine off—for which evident in | terposition of Providence ail the soldiers who were to have been actors imthe show are, or ought to be. abundantly thankful These reviews, under most circuin>tances, are both tiresome and tedious ; and, so fac as 1 can un lerstan 1 the actual benefit to be 1 derived they are of very trifling moment j The purposes for which they are held are ' that the General may judge of the morale, j discipline and effectiveness of the forces un I der his command. The manner of conduct— j ing them and the baste-with which a!! the j details tre gone through with, necessarily ; give the reviewing officer but the smallest j opportunity tor even the most superficial judgment. He firot rides alone the lines at a hand gallop—usually paying more atten tion to the paces of his horse than to the men i before hint, —the men are then wheeled into ; column, take up tfie quick step, and at this ! pace pass the reviewing officer, who has pre | viously taken his position some considerable ' distance in front of the centre of the line ; after which the columns break into files, pro ceed to their respective cauip, and the re ' view is a thing of the past. How much the I confidence of the General in his fighting ma j terial has been strengthened, or how much ! the good qualities of the men themselves has been improved by the display, you can judge quite as well as I or any other actual witness. Active preparations for an early advance |of this army have been going forward f-r some days now, and every indication points t< a f ward movement so soon as the con dition of the roads and the weather will per mit • but " the rain—it raineth all the time," and you Ktn w rai l makes mud and mud blocks the wheels. The neighbor.! g streams, too, are filled to the banks, and need only a shower of little more thnn ordinary violence uiid duration to flood the low lands border ing them ; making the crossings, even with the aid of our efficient engineers and pontoniers, difficult, if not impossible. To beep this ajitiy supplied with f rage suhsistance &c., even under the most favra ble circumstances, is a matter of some mag nitude, and certainly one of the most seri ous considerations which must enter into •he plans of the General conducting its move ments. Transportation, by wagon trains for anv considerable distance, would be a simple impossibility, during the present un settled state of the weather ; and I would not take it as evidence of wisdom or go >d generalship were a movement undertaken until there is a reasonable assurance that the elements will prov- propitious. For tins reason, I do not think that the army will move much before the last of the month, notwithstanding flint the orders relating to Sutlers, baggage, Ac*, which usually imine the opening of a campaign, have already been issued. So far as my own persona! feelings arc concerned, I do not care how soon we break carnp and enter the field in earnest, for it is the evident intention to make aharp, quick, and, I (rust, decisive work of it. Thus the sooner it is commenc ed the quicker it will be over with The mouutama west and north of us are yet covered with snow, and occasional fleecy squalls are by no means uncommon. Vege tation is unus'ially blackened —as at this time last year, and in this immediate neigh borhood, peach trees vfere in lull bloom, whilst at present the bud* are bnt little swollen, au 1 many days must elapse before they bursi then winter coverings. Even the blue birds and robins, those early harbinger* of spring, do not twitter atnong the leafless branches, nor do their sweet voiced songs had the early morn. In the eariy April days of last year every bush was filled with melody, and the bright wings of the merry songsters floated everywhere in the sutdigh It may be that the wautori destruction of orchards and shade trees, and the leveling of immense forrests have driven the birds from their usual Summer haunts to seek coverts in more umbrageous shades. Time was, beiore the ruthless hand of war had swept over this fair land, when this was perhaps the most beautiful, best cared for portion of Virginia. You will bear in mind that we are but a few miles from White Sulphur Springs, and on the direct road lead ing from Culpepper to that once aristocratic and fashionable Summer tesort. Tall lo custs once stretched their branches aero** this read, its enure lengin—fiilmg the air with their fragrance, and inviting the wcarv traveler to rest beneath their grateful shade, —fair fields smiled upon the husbandman's busy care—fragrant orchard* surrounded alike the stately mansion and the humble but—fli-ck* and herds grazed lazily within the enclosure upon the hill side, or chewed the cud of meditation beneath the branches of some lonely oak, and the plough boy whi* ties gay cancels'*, returning by the hrook srde, from his daily toil, then sweet em. oy contest—a better panacea for social ill* than was ever dreamed of by modern philanthro pists. Now, alas ! all-is changed. Grim vizaged war has shown Lis wrinkled front. Houses are deser'ed, fields are desolated, orciaM* and road-side shade, feiests and groves have sunk beneath thestr >kcs of tli • *oi Iter*' *xe ; the husbandman has fled flout hi* fa'r herit age an ! the, bat and the owl builds iheir nesis beneath the roof* of once hnppv, hos pltable houses ; —the gay, careless,contented, happy iaTm baud, is now a morose, sullen, discontented contraband bullied by the quartermaster, the but of the wagonmaster, cursed by the soldier and cared lor by none. What is freedom to him but a tnoro degrad ed, less humanizing state of existence Deep in his heart there are yearnings for the old life, the old plantation, the old ties, and the innumerable enjoyments, which, alter all, centre around " the spot where he was b--rne tia" 1 have no undue prejudices against ll.c Af rican race—ain not disposed to regard slave ry as an institution at ail calculated to alevi ate or exercise a particularly civilizing influ ence upon it. On the contrary, I would re joice to see every man, whire or black, enjoy '.he largest liberty of which he is mentally and morally capable ; but that the present generation of slaves are in any decree fi'ted f'r the enjoyments of liberty, is fact, if it be a fact, that I cannot discover. The iignts of humanity and the best interests of the slave, himselt, requires ihat emancipation to be bemficent must be gradual; and it is dnub.ful. even then, if <h ae.ua! condition oi the race would be benefitted by 'lie choigv, in the cotton and rice producing States.- Sambo has a proberb-al disinclination for work—would much rather rteai, if it is just as convenient ; and, if left to follow hia own inclinations, would probaply take to the lat tet mode of life as kindly as a kitten does to warm milk. I have seen sufficient of the southern darkey, both before and since the commencement of the war, .in Ins former plantation life and in his present anomalous position, to convince me that no good will result to him from the change ; and his fu ture disposition will yet be a matter of grave concern to the nation. Meantime, so that Mr. Nigger has his creature comforts cared for and is not driven to toil, it is a matter of small moment to him which side wins the stake for which the opposing armies are con tending. According to the N. Y. Herald, one great feature of the Sanitary Fair, now being held in that city, i* the c intention between the admirers of Gen's. Gratir and McCtellan for the army sword donated by T.ffauy & Co., and to be presented to the General having the greatest number of friends with do'lar.s to spare. " Little Mac," so far, seems to tave the odds on his side ; but the plumpers in the shape of SIOO subscriptions which nave gone down for Grant, have made the race, a prertv even thing. 1 have heard no opinion expressed here concerning the mat ter, and, indeed, it has created bit '0 l !e 111 ten st. If it was left for thts army to de cide be'ween the prominent Generals, how ever, Grant would not stand the shadow of a chance, for not withstanding that the soldier-, are disposed to regard "inn fav >rib!v, as in deed they do any successful General, he can ni-VL" stand so high in their esteem, as doeo their old coir rounder. Their love for Mc- Clvl'au is distinct from all other emotions ; and f real!v believe that many of 1 hem >\uuid follow him cheerfully to defeat, disaster and dca>h, and with more enthusiastic devotion than it is possible f>r any o'her person to create. Those who think that his populari ty or good name ts in the least impaired, with his old soldiers, labor under a very se rious mistake, to which their senses will be come conscious next November. It is snowing most beautltully, and gusts of cold winds come creeping in at the cracks and crevices and down the chimney. The guard is pacing his weary round buttoned to the chin and shivering 'Ktfore the blast. The ground is partially covered and all out of dooi* is wearing a wintry Cm yc heat such weather, away up North, among th mountains of old Wyoming? Trulv Y urs. Cl.l NT. s>- WEM. DINK—\L A recent Democratic meeting in New York, one of the speakers, a German Colonel who has been in service 111 nor army, to'd a I urge number of amusing stories, illustrating the absurd cried of tin* Administratioiiistg. The two following, hit off the points described in an eff. ctivs man ner . •' A man once went for a doctor for Ins wife and asked him, 'how long have you been a doctor ?' Too answer was. 'Twenty live years.' I'ne man asked, 'How many patients have you killed ill that tune V 'On- i Iv one" siid the doctor; so the man hired the doc'or to see his wife, and in a few days hts wife was dead. So the man asked hiui in great wrath how it was possible he had only killed one person in t .venty-tive years. 'Oh,' said the doctor, 'I only had 0:10 patient.'— So the Republicans in twenty or thirty years have only one patient, and they have nearly killed him. In making this a year for aho lit ion, they are hke the man who set fire tn his house, and burned in it his fur.i ur e his wife and children, and when asked why he burned it, replied 'to kill c>ckroach es The latter story is decidedly well put.— The Adminiatiationista seem bent no de stroying the Federal Union and the habpi ness of the white men and women oi the country, all foi the sake of giving free lorn to the negroes. A * 4 Loyal" Favorite George hor • n, the notorious English abolitionists, said in a late speech in Umton in alluding to his visit to this country, some years ago : • I was a disturber of the public peace : I wn- an enemy to the Union ; I was th< w-rihy to be denounced bv your President tit a;; address to Congress; I am unchanged " This <'s the man to whom the Fedi ral II use ol Ropresntatives. recently paid the Compliment of voting the use of us hall for Inin • lecture in; and whose address on tie occasion was listened to with apparent grali tlca'ioii lv the Pre V nt and Cabinet, the admiui-'rationis s ui J ngross, and nearly all the sh "idv aristocracy of Washington cu\ The person who was denounced by lleury Clay, Daniel Websier and Stephen A. Doug las as an enemy to the nation, unfit to re ceive anything but the sec rn of Americans, is now entertained with distinguished hon rs by the administration leaders in evety part ofT.be country. * Envy hat no rest. The Dividend* of War, Those who desire to make the war a "per manent institution," as Senator LiQe propos ed at the Loyal League meeting in New York —atnirl the cheers of his audience, —should carefully scan both 6ides of the balance ..i.nct of that institution. It doubtless pajs divi dends in jobs, con'racts, stocks, office, epau lettes and glory. But it does rn re than this ami we take from the Philadelphia Aorth American (a loyal paper) the following list made up to the first of September, 18G3, in cluding the battle of Chickamauga : CONFEDERATES.

RUMORED CALL FOR STATE MILITIA here are rutin rs from Washington of an other call fur two hundred thousand troops for six months, for garri-n.n du y, s,> as to place all the available force possible in the field. The following mysterious extract is taken frotn the New Yoik correspondence of the Boston Journal: There is a small room in the Astor House, <>n tiie lower lioor, around which clusters quile as much interest as any room in the natu n. excepting ilu President's room in the White House. Its occupant—and he has held the room for many years—is a quiet and apparently unobtrusive man, moving about the corridors with a cat-like step, rarely sjieakmg to any one, being rarely spoken to, and of so quiet and subdued a mien tfiat his presence would not be noticed by a stringer lie couies and goes almost without observa tion—passing away in the evening trai >, and flitting back with the early morning bglit.— Few in en of importance of rank in civil or military life, pass through New York with out visiting tl.is room. It is the head quar ters of the conservative element of the land' without rerard to party. Fremont does not visit, but McUlellin does. Butler did n<t call, io his reeeut passage through New York but Gov. Seymour is quite a', home in the Chambers. The plan fur the re orgiinzaiion of the rebel states, and the c< a -ervative plan fur conducting the next presidential cam paign, are here mapped out and perfected Influences that agitate Congress and the Siate Legislat ure, and Knock into pi the schemes of politicians, can be (raced to this Utile chamber, which is the New-York houir of Thurlow Weed. i The Word Aboi itmnuts —An acrosti cal Ireal uient of the word "Abolitionists" ! readily mves us the character of the Ahull i ti<>!) party its history, the legitimate results ! of us teachings, together with its final aims, i and the condition in which its cmruption and incompetence have placed the country.

The undersigned, members of tho Kxoeu'ive Com mittee of tiie GREAT CENTRAL FAIK for tho Sanitsry Commission, beg to invite the co-operation of all their fellow-citizens, especially of those resident in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey, io this important enterprise, It is proposed to hold the Fair in Philadelphia, in the FIRST WEEK IN JUNE NEXT,and it is confidently expected that the contri butions, coming from a population so benetcient and patiiotic as that which inhabits the Central States, an 1 representing the most important and variod branches of industry and art, will sec'ire a ! result in aid of tho funis of tha Commission, and tor tho benefit of the Soldiers, at least equal to that which has attended similar undertak ing* in other cities- It is not necessary to say A work to stimulate sympathy for the soijiars. YYo feel for thera all as brethren, and the popular heart ' seeks only the best mo te of manifesting that sympa- j thy in the most efficient and practical way. The<e ' Fairs in other places have lieen productive of great resul'3, Ily tfci? means Chicago has recently raised for thi> object sixty thousand dollnrs, Ronton one j hund-ed and fifty thousand, and Cincinnati more than two huudrci thousand. We appeal,then, with the greatest confidence to the inhabitants of the Cen tral .States, especially to those who constitute the great industrial classes to send as contributions the pro luctions of thair skill and workmamsh p. We appeal to them in the interest of no party, radical or i conservative, Republican or Democratic, Adininis- • tration or anti-Administration. We know only this, I that to send our n m >nal soldiers in the field sup plies to supplement those government undertakes jto give them, but wh'ch they sometimes fail to re- ! reive, and thus to relieve them when sick and in misery, in a work of Christian charity, and that it is a work of inteligent patri itism also, as economizing I their life, health and efficiency, on which, under God, the nation depends in this its time of trouble. We therefore ask exery clergyman to announce tuis humane undertaking to his people, and to advise them to do what they can to farther It. We ask the press to give it tbe widest publicity and thn mcst earnest encouragement. We call onevery workshop, factory and mill for s specimen of the best thing it can turn out ; on every artist, great and small, for ' or.e of his creations ; on all loyal women, for the ex ercise of their taste nod industry ; on farmers, for ' the products of their fiebls and dairies. The miner, ' the naturttist, the man of science, the traveller, can * , each send something that can at the very last bo con : verted into a blanket that will warm, and may save from dea h. some one soldier whom government sup- ' plies have failed to reach. Every one who can pro- j ■ ditee anything that his money value is invited to give a sample ot his best work as an offering 10 the cause of natioual unity. Every w .rkingiuan, me -1 chanie or farmer, who can make a pair cf shoes, or raise n arrel of ap; v- Is celled on to " ntriba:e| something that can bo turned into money, and again j trom money into tbe means of economizing tho i health an i the life of our national soldiers, Committees have been appointed in each depart ment f industry and art, whose busiuess it will be i to solicit contributions for the Fair, each in its own 1 special branch. These Committees will place them selves in communication with n ,e persons who may wish to aid us. In the meantime it is rccomende i "hat local committees or associations should be i formed in every portion of Pennsylvania, Delaware J and New Jersey, with a view of oigunizing the In- 1 dustry of their reypec-tiie neighborhood, o a* in secure contributions for the Fair. Committees of Ladies have also boen organize 1 to co-operute with those of the gentlemen in soliciting contribctions. We sohrit the sympathy of every true hearted p&tri t in Pennxylvar.i 1. Delaware and New Jer?er, and elsewhere, aa far as our appeal may roaca, to • respond nobly and generou!y to our call. We n?k i their earnest and untiring efforts and ce-opcration ; and we confidently that every county, city, : town and village will feel an honest pride in being i worthily reprsented at 'The Great Central Fair '' We woul i say, in conclusion, that there it a greet i work before us. nni but a limited space of tiir.e ia which to accomplish it.
