Circumstantial Union 3Ien.
We have heretofore spoken of men
and papers who support the Umon with
an "IF," showing that they were enemies
in disguise. There is another class of
men and newspapers not much better,
who of late are Union men because cir
cumstances compel them to be such. We
like lo see men "convinced of the errors
of their ways," make an "open confes
sion," which is said to be "good for the
soul," and change their "course of life.
But we are disposed to place very little
reliance in men or papers, who suddenly
change from sympathizers, at least, with
the rebellious movement against the gov
ernment, to supporters -Supporters in
word only. We dislike to see men or
papers in this, the critical moment, stop
to accuse this, that, or the other political
party with being the instrument of bring
ing about the unhappy condition of our
once happy and heaven-favored country
land claim that this, or the other party
is to be the sols instrument by which the
Government i3 to be sustained and per
petuated ; or to spend words, ink and
paper, in finding fault with an isolated
movement of the Administration; the gen
eral policy of which they must necessa
rily be ignorant in regard to. Intelligent
and patriotic friends cf the government
have long since lost sight of party dis
tinctions in the present contest. Men
who six months ago were arrayed against
each other in political contest, are now
fighting side by side in support of the
Constitutiun and Laws ; not for one mo
ment inquiring into political antecedents.
All know that political issues have had
nothing whatever to do with bringing
about, or continuing the attempt of trai
tors to overturn the Government.
At the time of entering into the oricri
nal Federal Compact, there were those
who opposed it : were opposed to a free
republican form of government. Cr
cumstances, however, compelled them to
acquiesce ; but they and their progeny
have ever since lived but to finally bring
about its downfall. The traitor, Burr,
first made the attempt; Calhoun spent a
long life in endeavoring to dissolve the
Union ; and the rebels Davis, Cobb Floyd
Toombs, Rhett, Wise & Co. are but fol
lowing in the course marked out by the
earlier instructors.
The New York Herald, St. Louis
Republican, and many other smaller
light? have of late "changed fronts" in
regard to sustaining the Government;
but Instead of giving a manly support to
"the powers that be" in the attempt to
enforce the laws and thereby sustain and
perpetuate our Government, they spend
most of their efforts in raking up dead
issues and denouncing the Republican
party, and harping upon the "inherent
ri-ht of the freedom of speech." We re
peat, if such journals design, or desire
to be useful to their country they had
better wait until the contest for freedom
is decided, and then "settle old scores."
The man or press, who "with the lights

and content himself with a simple decla
ration of loyality to the Stars and stripes
while his every word and act is to find
fault with the political party that happens
to be in power, and with which he dif
fers, is either insane, ignorant, or at
heart a sympathizer with the rebels. Old
political parties are lost in patriotism,
and after "the contest is ended," it will
be a long time before party lines are a
gain drawn. The issues which have for
years been the "bone of contention" be
tween political parties will be annihilat
ed in the struggle now progressing, and
when political parties are re-organized,
the basis will be more akin to the prin-
: ciples of the "Fathers of the Country,"
, than we have been used to of late. Mark
that prediction !

all because the Government has avowed
its objects to be to recover property from
which it has been fraudulently and trait

they are apprehensive will be assailed;
that the fortresses, mints, and custom

Pay Boll.
A pay roll of officers and privates in
the U. S. service has been going the
rounds of newspapers for some time we
published it in the Advertiser in which t And though few wero tho lights in the gloom of that
the pay of privates is put dowu at $20
per month.
We have taken the pains to ascertain
from Adj't Gen. Harding, of this (2nd)
Brigade, the correct pay roll of those in
the U. S. service. The following is from
the official Army Register of 1859 :
Captain 870 per month 4 rations,
counted at 30cts per ration per day.
Lieut. 55 33 1-3 per month rations
same as above.
1st Serg$20 per month.
2d, 3d, 4th Sarg't 817 per month.
Corporal 814 per month.
Privates 812 per. month.
Each mounted man including officers
is required to furnish his own horse,
for th8 use of which he is paid 40cts per
day, officers commuted rations if they
Captain S60 per month, rations same as
mounted captains.
1st Lieut. 850 per month, rations same
as captain.
2d Lieut. 845 per month, rations same
as captain.
1st Sarg't 20 per month.
2d, 3d, 4th Serg'ts 817 per month.
Corporal 813 per month.
Musician 812 per month.
Private 811 per month.
The above is taken from official Army
Register of 1859. I am not aware of
any change having been made since then.

Prompt and efficient steps should be

plan all would proportionally contribute.
Any way, however, by tax or subscrip

Correspondent of the Baltimore Patriot.
Faiuxouxt, May 7th 1SG1.
We had a great day here yesterday.
About three thousand Union men assem
bled together who have resolved to stand
by the Union at all hazards let the east
ern part of the State do what she may.
Two of the Union members of the Con
vention Mr, Burdet, cf Fowler, and Mr.
Hall cf this county, were here and ad
pressed the people at lenght on the
various questions cf the day. Their
speeches were of the highest order, and
frequently applauded by the immense
concourse of people. The speeches were
made iu the main street fronting the
Court House which was completely block
ed with pe:ple.
The Disunion party were holding a
meeting in the Court House which they
had to have guarded in front of the build
ing by armed men to defend their little
band of traitors. H.
The "Washington correspondent of the
Journal of Commerce, says that the
Southern states have been preparing for
for war during the last iwo years and
have organized and trained large bodies
of men aud obtained large "quantities of
of cannon and all other enginery of war.
And yet the organs cf treason pre
tend that the war for which the South
ern States began to get ready two years
ago, was commenced dy the Administra
tion of Lincoln.
The cry most relied on for the bene
fit of the disunion is that the design of
i the Administration and the object of the
North are the subjugation of the South.
This has roused the spirit and feelings
of those to whom such language is ad
dressed. Few, indeed, are reasonable
enough to ask to whom or what they are
subjected. Now, every reasonable man
at the North knows that no other subject
tion is either contemplated or desired
than subjection to the Constitution and
the laws, to be equally, fairly and im
partially administered. Such subjection
has heretofore been yielded by all the
North adhered to it when the enactment
of the laws, the administration of them,
and the enforcement of them, were all
in the hands of a Southern Congress, a
Southern Judiciary, and a Southern Ex
ecutive. They yielded this obedience and
loyally freely and fully. All they now
ask of the South is the same acquies
cence. They wish no more, and from
present appearances, it is clear that they
will be satisfied 7?ith no less. Is it not
what every community must exact from
the citizen, and without which no gov
ernment can exist ?
The Southern feeling is excited by the
incessant cry that '-our institutions are
endangered, our wives and daughters
to be ravisned; our children butchered;
and our hearths to be made desolate," and
Military A company is being formed
in this county under the call of the Gov
ernor, to enter the U. S. Service for three
years unless sooner discharged. Meet
ings have been held the past week at
Nemaha City, Peru and this place, for
the purpose of obtaining names. The
company will most likely be filled up by
Saturday next, at whr time a county
meeting will be held in Brownville.
There are enou gh young men in Ne

"rIaj. Beauregard when he discharged
the first gun against Fort Sumter lighted
a flame which will require a long time to
extinguish. The people at the North are
at present enthusiasticly unanimous.
They never were aroused rntil that shot
was fired. I often warned Southern
gentlemen that this would be the inevita
ble result.
A gentleman just arrived at Pittsburg
from Jacksonville Fla reports the people
of the latter place as strongly Union.
They have reason to be a3 their chief
support is derived from the Northern in
valids who resorted there.
Up to thi3 time, the total number cf
troops whose services have been accepted
by and offered to the Government for the
present emergency, amounts to the extra
ordinary number of 000,000. From facts
within our knowledge we rest under the
impression that by the meeting of Con
gress every man of them will have been
called into the field.
