Carlisle American Volunteer (Newspaper) - April 24, 1862, Carlisle, PennsylvaniaAmerican Volunteer. Of film al. Bit Teton. Editor proprietor. Carlisle pa., april 24,�?T 2sg2. Its it i al forever float that Standard breathes the foe but Falls before list Wilk freedoms soil beneath our feet. And freedoms Banner leaving Over us a a member of Congress Hon. Joseph built Wilt accept our thanks for re cent favors. Aye Are also indebted to the ven a Orsble and Patriot to lion. John Crittenden of the House for similar favors. A. Progress of warm genial weather of the past few Days 1ms had surprising effect upon vegetation. The grass in our Public squares would make Fine fare while the Trees Are rapidly their leaves. A 1 summer last at two p. M., a the thermometer was ninety degress in the Shade. This is indeed remarkable with the i hot that eight Days previously was Snow to the depth of eighteen inches. So varied Are the changes of our climate that before Twenty four hours we May chronicle the appearance of Frost. A amp Quot capt. . Porter former editor of the Carlisle Herald has abandoned his connection with that paper. I in is now bookkeeper at Kanaka a a hotel our Best wishes attend him. A All learn by tho Pittsburg pers that general Buell s body guard who a were in the Battle of Shiloh. Pittsburg land Are All Safe. Several Carlisles at itched to this Fine company which was formerly denominated the Anderson body guard. And some uneasiness h manifested by their friends who will be rejoiced to know. That it ally a 1e7 the announcement last week by two of our town papers that maj. Lemuel Todd had been appointed colonel of the eighty fourth regiment that capt. R. Henderson of the a a Carlisle Fenci Bles a had been elected lieutenant colonel of the seventh Pennsylvania Reserve corps and Lieut. Oal Well elected Captain of Henderson a com Penny was premature no changes of the kind having taken place. Aye Hope however before Long to to Able to announce the these gentlemen. A a. Spring the time for Birds and Flowers has arrived. A Otlie Molt Newholy Days o or a a 1 to said dust of tho year a0/wailing winds and naked Woodland Meadows Brown and scar Quot a. Spring Beautiful Spring comes there is a feeling of Relief As we reach is first Day and look Back on Winter As a thing a that was As a matter of history., it is very comfortable to remember its frosts and storms v the sheeted Earth and Frozen streams As things of the past. A a not Only through tho lenient air the change delicious breathes the penetrative sur his forced deep darting to tie dark Retreat -0f vegetation sets tho steaming Power a a at Largo to wander o or tho verdant Earth in various hues but chiefly Olieo Gay Green 1 thou smiling nature s Universal Robe. Whatever appliances we May use to make the Winter tolerable it is still a period of in of Aramco and the Farewell with which we , is one of the few occasions in which a that word sounds pleasantly to the ear. Tho most enthusiastic Lover of Sleigh rides and a Snow Hanks skating and ice is Content to put up the Sleigh and fold up tho Winter furs and to Lay Asido the burnished skates. The school by. Bouses , and Lay up tho Curling stick with a that to feels when he takes them out for the Winter Campaign. The Farmer draws his last Load of Wood Over the melting Snow with a Calm satisfaction and is hardly displeased if it to left half Home a upon the Bare Field like Koah Sark on dry. Land. We All feel that then in something ahead Winter Lias afforded us. At has no Power to compensate us for what we Are deprived of in season of storm and Snow. We manage to make the dwelling very comfortable by stoves and furnaces but it is. sound when the last clinker is rattled from the grate and the Furnace door creaks for Tolfe last Timo on its in oiled hinges and we Are glad to have the Universal self acting Heater do its appointed work. To bail the. Lengthening of Trio Days with a rapture that we never feel when the nights grow longer and the darkness Breaks off our unfinished task. And we do this without a thought of Economy. It is True that the 6un saves us urn Bill for Light and fuel but How few Welcome the Spring with the thought that it will Ervo Coal Wood Gas Oil and tallow candles instinctively we the opening Days of Spring As Good and Beautiful in themselves. Thero is no heat like that which the Sun gives and no condition of the atmosphere so genial and enjoyable As that which the Sun makes. There is no Light so pleasant to tho Eyo As the Mph today. Houses Are necessary evils with All their contrivances for heating lighting a tuition. We Are glad when to can have twelve hours of sunlight when we can throw open doors and windows and drink sunlight and fresh air like tho Birds plants. Youka guilty. Byj Refe Ronco to Wiir report of court pro Coddings it will to soon that messes. Richard Oswald a. A. Kaufman jr., fid , All of mechanics Hurt wore found guilty for arresting and holding in confinement a Man named John Kennedy. It appeared in evidence that of. Tho 20th Day of june last Kenned made a visit to Mechanicsburg for the purpose of making some during Bis stay in the town tho Cumber not Valloy oars passed Down the Road having among the passengers in charge of , a certain Alvey of Hagerstown,.who jihad been arrested by order of tho then Secretary of War Cameron and 60nt to Ono of our forts. No charges had been preferred against Alvey by the government and after a few in the fort to was released and permitted to go Homo. Lie is we understand a Union Man and. Always has been. The arrest of. Alvey without being told Why he was arrested Kennedy denounced As a a unlawful and unconstitutional.�?T? in. This he . Finally Kennedy who is a Man of weak mind spoke of tho War As a crusade against slavery As having been got up by the abolitionists for tho double purpose of freeing the braves and plundering the people that the southerners wore Only contending for their rights. Amp of. Lie still declared however,.timt to was a Union Man and in favor of the Constitution As it All in All Bis language May have been imprudent,.but should not. Have Beon heeded by Mien of thus expressing himself lie mounted his Livorse and proceeded in the direction of his Homo after Riding a you ply of squares fhe was stopped by Ederly Kaufman Oswald and. Others who called themselves a a a vigilance committee who took hold bridle and led tho horse with his rider Hack to town when Rithey. Gave Kennedy a mock trial and finally concluded to release him. A again Kennedy mounted his Lionso and started for Homo and again his persecutors followed and overtook him and escorted him Back to tho town Hall whore they demanded that he a Touhl take a the oath of this Kennedy refused to do and again to was ,.and wont Home. This is about the history of the Case. The Case created considerable interest Anda great Many witnesses,.As Well As spectators were in the court room during tho protracted trial. It was the first ease of the kind perhaps i or tried in this county and it was to do dido tho question whether Sot of fanatical enthusiasts can with impunity and when ovoid they please arrest and insult men who happen to differ with the politically. It was to test the question whether a self constituted and unlawful committee of stay at Home patriots Daro set the Laws and Gnu Stith Tion at Defiance at pleasure. Tho trial occupied two full jays during the whole of which time tho court room was crowded after tho attorneys on both sides had said their say judge. Graham charged the jury most ably and pointed out the constitutional provisions which should govern it in rendering a verdict. On the following morning tho jury returned into court with their verdict finding tho defendants a a guilty of false imprisonment.�?T, at this writing the a defendants had ,8entencecl so ended this important trial. A ,. To Hope tho result of this trial will serve As a lesson to Republican zealots who whilst affecting great patriotism Are at the same time doing the very thin for which the rebels of tho South Are now being justly punished Viz a violating the Constitution and the Laws. Home guards a who. Imitating statistics of free if Gro population from the subjoined table which we compile from the census of 1800, it will to seen Liat tho free negro population of the Slavo holding states is considerably in excess Over the non slav holding states., that is the slav holding states notwithstanding the existence of slavery in them have in reality Given a wider Extension to tho principle of emancipation than was Ever done by thenon slave holding states. This is a fact which should not to forgotten by those who would Admire philanthropy cd flood rather than in word number of free negroes., inthe free state sin tiie slate states.

T ,.222, w Biz the republicans a the had no desire to smell gun pm Dor the example of the Petty tyrant and Specula Tor Cameron took it into their Heads that they too could net As dictators and instruct democrats How to conduct themselves during our country a troubles. Their flippant tongues denounced every Man As a a a secessionist who refused to worship at the shrink of abolition Dis unionism or who could not and would not endorse All the acts of tho weak kneed president and those honest patriots a and Cameron in imitation of this last named gentleman we say they Havi attempted too Long and too often to act in and the part of tyrants. They have attempted to set their feet upon the necks of democrats they have appointed unlawful vigilance committees and those self constituted committees have had tho Brazen impudence to visit some of the Best and most Loyal men in our county and question them and demand of them that they a a take the oath of allege Frice they threatened and menaced until their impudence became intolerable. Being violators of tho Constitution themselves and therefore Dis unionists they wanted Loyal Mon to follow their example and became enraged when they refused to do so. Quot to Hope to repeat that tho result of Quot this trial May have a Good effect and teach men that Here in Cumberland cannot and shall not violate the Constitution and Laws with impunity. It gives us no pleasure to announce the conviction of tho three defendants in this trial. Indeed we sorry that men so highly less Retablo should have been engaged in unlawful and unconstitutional acts. Ayo Feci warranted in saying that it is the desire of no one to Seo them Soverly dealt with court for to arc satisfied that there Are Twenty or thirty others just As guilty As the three who wore convicted. We Hope however As we said before that tho result of this trial May Servo a Good purpose. Let us All obey the Laws let us nil Cercre the Constitution and frown upon All who refuse to do so will he bettor for ourselves and better for tho country. So Mote it be.

It shows not Only that the free negro population of the blah holding states exceeds that of the free Statos hut also that the most intense anti slavery states Are those smallest nimber of Veo negroes. The six new England states have hut 24t41i free negroes while Pennsylvania new York and new Jersey have 130,325. The Western states including Ohio Liao 64,347. Ponn Sylvania al one has 56,373 More than any single Stato in tho. Union. New Jersey however has tho largest number in proportion to its population of any Freo state in tho Union. A -. It will to observed that the states time Timve done most to secure the Freedom of the negro and displayed the greatest amount of Abst net abolition philanthropy Are those inv chg tho Locaste practical exp Ronco of the burdens imposed by Largo negro population. Massachusetts supports less than ten. Thousand Maine,.not More than twelve i United. New Hamp Liiro has Only four Hundred and fifty scarcely enough to let t in people know what a negro looks . A. Black Man would no doubt be a curiosity to hundreds of voters in that state who. Aro accustomed to shout for negro for condom. The farther from the negro the Moro anxious for his1 company i seems to to the Rule. Tho states having tho most experience of top effects of a. Large neg Roo population Are least desirous that it should to incroased.,. Tho Statos responsible for the great Catharo of guilt in. Precipitating the country. Into tho present War Ore tho very states that had the least reason for it. The secession conspiracy was hatched in South Carolina and tho extreme Southern states which never lost a negro or suffered in Tjit most Remote degree from tho effects of abolition agitation while the Statos in the North most hostile to Southern Quot institutions and most anxious to Securo negro Freedom were those farthest removed from the. South and possessed of tho least a practical knowledge of tho negro Raco. Virginia and Tennessee which lost Moro slaves in n week than tho Cotton states did in ton years were the very last to rebel against the government. Kentucky Missouri and Maryland Moro exposed than Virginia and Tennessee Are still in the Union and at least nominally Loyal. Pennsylvania new Jersey a Ohio Illinois and Indiana which support tho greatest number of Freo negroes Are More conservative than the new England. States which support few or none. These facts show that both Northern and Southern fanaticism proceed Quot from and Clely indicate pc.

I Learned some things that fess new to me and. I think the idea will to new to the Publio generally and As in presenting it i Baili no transcend the rules Laid Down for the government of tho press i will Endeavor t��jo6 it Down. The gentle Man rof ered to i know to be a warm personal Friend to Gen.

T would Liko to give his name that the Public might the Mere Reaf Fily comprehend the reason Why e assign so much paper to the of such ideas. The conversation turned upon the operations of the army hero and elsewhere. I asked. A what is general h al Leoke a opinion of Gen. Mcclellan a a Friend a a a have heard gon eral Ilal Leek say in substance repeatedly that to considered the military skill science and penetration Rio of Gen. Mcclellan As second to that of living that Quot whatever had been done in the West and elsewhere was but the carrying out of Mcclellan so great plan of the War that the general idea of each and every Ono of these movements was tho Fri of his Foresaid and knowledge of up Plances and that Mcclellan tho whole work and Only left the finished touches to and division of try the false information furnished by tho daily papers in reference to War matters is not Only annoying but an into Oralo nuisance. About ninety per cent of All they publish is false. The reported death of c Apt. Bucnanan on the rebel Steamer no Rimac and capture of Yancy the Lato rebel commissioner to England which were published a few woks on what appeared to to positive information turn out to to entirely untrue. The a positive information a too that Beauregard at tho Battle of Pittsburg Landing had his a a Arm shot off close to tho shoulder a was a fabrication he was not Hurt. Trio other. A a reliable information a that Beauregard had died and that Breckinridge had been Takon prisoner had not a semblance of truth. After the Battle of Pittsburg it was stated by the sensation daily papers that our loss in killed was Somo a a eighteen or Twenty thousand and the lose of the All false. Our loss was less than two thousand and tho rebel loss about the same. We might go on and string out a column in showing up tho Falso statements of the daily papers. Our readers can see How difficult it is for country editors to publish reliable War nows. Frequently to cull from our daily exchanges Ono two or three columns of a reliable War this to put in Typo and the next Day to Soo the whole of it contradicted. Tho daily papers Havo made a of papers and accomplished their object. We Havo concluded therefore that henceforth we will publish nothing but accounts of actual Bat ties and army Movo mints.
