treated him to exert his influence with the Northern men to meet them on equal grounds. ' His days were spent in unavailing attempts to j have them appreciate the danger. They listen- ' ed not to his admonitions, and when he brought the subject to their attention by his message of j January 8, 1800, and urged upon them thene- j cessity of either compromising the difficulties or giving him power to raise the requisite forces, they scorned his counsel and refused,' him the power.

That he | should fej;n e doQ ® 50 WC L standing as he did j H-O parties bent on the destruction of , *hf* country, will be the great wonder of onr children. It is a most fitting commentary upon . - of Mr. Buchanan's administration that. Mr. Lincoln, for six long weeks after his ! inauguration, followed precisely iu thefootstops his predecessor. This fact speaks more for the wisdom of Mr. Buclianan's poliey than all j the praise of his most ardent friends. I repeat it, Mr. Speaker, and history will sus- j tain tae in the declaration, that the same breath j which casts calumny upon Mr. Buchanan for j an alleged inefficiency must cover with unspeak- i able shame the man who, with that experience before him chose to walk in the same path.— | Mr. Lincoln well knew that no to the day that j Fort Sumpter was fired upi, the prospect for j a settlement had net faded away. The three j great States of Virginia, Tennessee anil North Carolina still stood fast for the Union, and he himself had but a short time before expressed the opinion that the Union sentiment predomi nated in ei'ery Southern State, except perhaps South Carolina. Mr. Buchaaan acted upon the belief that the American people could never be guilty of such gross folly as to lash them selves to pieces in a civil war. llad Fort Sump tor been fired upon during his term of office, force would have been met by force. Gen. Dix i in a speech made not long since bears this testi- i rnony to Mr. Buchanan's resolution: and he, it will be remembered, was a member of the Cabinet and ought to know what ho affirms. ! War is upon us—what shall we do? Shall we resign ourselves to the fate of a dismember- j ed Republic, or will we spring up giant-like to j new hope of a speedy peace and restoration of the Union. Under this administration we nev- ! er can have it. I take it, sir, it is not the in tention of the opposition to have peace until j every negro is free. If this was sot their ob- j ject, the Administration in power would have faithfully adhered to the resolution adopted by j Congress with unparalleled unanimity on the 22d of July, 1861, "that this war is not wag ed ou their part in any spirit of oppression, for any purpose of conquest or subjugation, or purpose of overthrowing or interfering with the rights or established institutions of the States, but to defend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution and to preserve the Union icflh all the dignity, equality, and rights of the several States unimpaired." They will free the slaves of the South, and enslave their own children in the mo6t galling yoke known to mankind—that of enormous taxation to pay an immense pub lic debt. I charge it upon the opposition— ' That they are not in favor of a restoration of this Union ; that in the event of the election of a Democratic l'resident in November next, they will be in favor of the recognition of the Southern Confederacy. That the war has been made a pretext and a pology for the usurpation, by the President, of powers unwarranted by the Federal Constitution and totally irreconcilable with the letter and spirit of our institutions. That the war has been conducted to build up a party at the expense of blood, treasure and time, and at the hazard of a permanent separation of the States. That the conduct of the war has been charac terized by corruption unprecedented in the his tory of any people, for which the President has in many instances declared himself responsible. That the prescut Administration has committed itself to doctrine which elevate the military above the civil power, uffiect the purity the ballot-box, and endanger the personal liberty of the citizen. That the policy now declared is fatal, not mere ly to all ideas of a legal reunion of the States but foreshadows fnture bankruptcy, constant agitation, the establishment of a large standing army, and in a time not remote, a militry cen tralization such as to-day exists in France. If we arc prepared for all this; if we close our eyes and shut our mouths, and do not raise our voices against the infringement that is now being made upon our rights ; and we permit the pres ent Administration to remain in power, we should bow our necks to the yoke of tyranny without a murmur. But, if we intend to se cure to ourselves the imperishable boon to speak, to act as a free people, and to enjoy liberty and preserve our rights, we must retrace our steps to a strict observance of the laws and the Con stitution. The question is with the people to decide. "Where t here is a will, there is away." No bristling bayonets, no threats or executive influence, can tamo the will of a people who love liberty. Their fires will be kindled upon every mountain side, until the vallies are lurid with the burning incense upon the altar of lib erty, ami their shouts will be heard above the din of the battle; "Toarms, inyfriendi! And letno sword be iheatbed Until our land from cliff to lake is fresj Free as our torrents, that leap our ro<3, Or a* our peaki that wear their caps of enow in the veiy presence of the regal sun ! A eountry'c never 10-st that hath one man To wrestla with the tyrant who'd enslave her!" The liberty of speech, the freedom of the ballot box and the inalienable rights of the citizens nre worth preserving. If defending them on this floor makes this'side of the House, iu the opinion of the gentlemen on the other side, sym pathisers with the rebellion, we know we do our duty, and that unborn generations will rise to bless the memory of the men who have pre served for them the rights and privileges of their fathers.

A Word to our Patrons. The immense increase in the cost of publish ing a newspaper, compels us to do two unpleas ant things, viz: to call upon our patrons, who are indebted to us, for money, and to make a slight increase in the subscription price of our paper. We hope that our friends will at once come forward and settle their accounts. We pay 25 cents per pound for printing paper—the price was formerly 8 and 0 cents. Ink and other materials rate in proportion. Hence we must' have money and a sufficient amount of it to justify us in continuing the business. For this reason we call upon those in arrears to PAY UP, and for this reason, from and after the first of August next, our subscription price will be $2.00 per annum, if paid in advance, $2.50 if paid within the year and §13.00 if not paid within the year. Abolition Tactics. An emphatic condemnation of the course of the present federal administration, was pro nounced by the people of the North, at the elec tions of 18G2. New York, New Jersey, Penn sylvania, Delaware, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin sent up to the White House their protest against emancipation, confiscation and the other pet measures of Mr. Lincoln and the federal congress. This result took the abolition leaders entirely b y surprise, and they immedi ately set about devising ways and means by which to retrieve their political disasters. Ar rest and imprisonment of prominent men in the Democratic party were first resorted to; then martial law was proclaimed, the intimidation of the people by force of arms, was attempted and picked men from the army sent home to make majorities at the polls. But still the abolition office-holders did not feel secure in their places. A more potent appliance than martial law, mil itary arrests and picked voters from the army, was found necessary to their political well-be ing. The plan of a sworn secret association was then hit upon. Its name, of course, was pa triotic. Its purpose, so far as avowed by its authors, was to sustain the prosecution of the war. All partizanship, or connection with po litical organizations, was solemnly disavowed by its members. Open meetings of the associa tion were held at regular periods, in order to entrap the unwary and deceive those who watch ed the movements of the intriguers. This the abolition managers succeeded in establishing a mighty political engine, whoso machinery was apparently moved by some unknown and invis ible power, and which laid its iron hand upon the entire social fabric of the North. This was the Grecian horse that brought defeat to the Democracy in the last campaign. Fraud, riot, murder sprang from its seemingly innocent frame. It stuffed the ballot-boxes, bribed the election officers, and when necessary, men sheltered within its protection, shot down Democrats at the election-places and drove the timid from the polls. This organization exists in this county to-day, and efforts are being made to spread it. It must be combated. The Democracy must rouse themselves to the reality that an insidious enemy is in their midst. Clubs must bo formed ard Democrats must be more cicsely united in their councils. Bet every borough and township have its local organization. Let evay school dis trict have its club. Let tis but have unanimity and thoroughness of action and tho day.' of that infamous monster, the Loy.Vt League, wi.'l soon be numbered with the past. ClßCUS.— Robinson's Great Metropolitan Cir cus will exhibit in thL place on Tuesday, 56th inst. Thi9 is said to be a splendid affair hiee advertisement in another column. The Disunion Party. "The abolition party is a disunion party." So said General Jackson and so said Daniel Web ster, Henry Clay, Stephen A. Douglas, Lewis Cass, James Buchanan and every great states man that ever spoke or wrote upon the ques tion of slavery. The commencement of the abolition aeitation "fell upon ray ear," said Jef ferson, "like thesound of afire-bell in the night." The a'arm concerning the dangerous tendencies of abolitionism, expressed by these great men was but too well founded. The poison of the noxious exotic has been infused into the body politic and dissolution is the fatal result. Our nationality has been slaiu and Abolition is the felon who committed the wanton deed. Red handed and, crimson-browed he stands by the mangled corse and madly slaughters his own kith and kin, to restore, as he avers, the dead to life. He is the parent of secession and now fain would slay his own child. Ila is the au thor of Disunion and now, in his intensified insanity, he strikes at all who would stay the blood-shed produced by his own mischievous creature. He was the enemy of the Union be cause the Union protected negro slavery. He was the foe of peace, because, without war, slavery could not be abolished. 110 was the pa tron of Helper, because Helper advocated ser vile insurrection. He was personified in John Brown, who struck the first blow, with arras in our civil war concerning negro slavery. And yet this foul demon prates and chatters most lovingly about "the Uniou" which he has des troyed. Its bloody wraith haunts him contin ually and he fain would have us believe that he loves it dead, though he hated it living. But the people will remember the destroyer Aboli tion, as the father of Secession and the author of Disunion. Negroes Voting in the Army. The abolition papers are busily engaged, just now, in fighting a shadow conjured up by their own fears. They insist that negroes will not be permitted to vote in the army, if the amend ment to the constitution permitting soldiers to vote, be ratified by tlie people. Well, who says that they will? It looks very much as though the abolition tricksters intend that the adoption of this amendment shall have this effect, else tboy would not raise the question of negroes voting when pot a single Democratic paper in the state has ever printed a word on the subject. On this point the minds of the people are made up. Negroes, whether in or out of the army, will never obtain the right of suffrage by the consent of the people. But the question is, why do the abolitionists raise this point? EDITORIAL MELANGE. £3"The Democrats of Vermont have nomi nated Timothy P.

If he is re-elected there will be no more drafting." How are you, con scripts ? C3r Abraham Lincoln has appointed the fourth day of August, as a day of "prayer to divina Providence, that the effusion of blood may be stayed and peace established throughout our bor ders." Abe has turned Copperhead too late. tS~On the 15th of September la6t the Presi dent issued a proclamation suspending tho writ of habeas corpus throughout the United States. A few days since he issued another proclama tion suspending it in Kentucky! We presume the next foreign country in which the president will "suspend." will be New Jersey! ®3*Gen. George P. Morris, the poet, and for many years one of the editors of the Home Jour nal, died in New York, a few days ago, aged 61 years. ©r Lincoln's one-tenth vote system of re-con structing the Union has gone by the board. The old tyrant was actually snubbed by his own cen gress. #3"At the recent election in Memphis, Tenn., the "loyalists" were defeated, whereupon Gen. Washburn immediately suspended tho municipal government of the city and appointed a "loyal" mayor for the place. Memphis has been occu pied by tho federal forces for two years. This shows how "coercion" works. 43" A call ha 3 been issued for 5,000 volun teers from Massachusetts, to perform garrison duty near Washington. Of course, Mr. Stan ton!

Grant pour out their life-blood before Petersburg. ®"A private soldier in Hunter's army, re cently got into an altercation with one of his officers, and in an affray wnich ensued, killed the officer.

Hunter is "crushing the rebellion by sending free-born white Americans to bastiles and traasporting their families across the feder al linos. Several prominent citizens of Cumber land, Md., have recently fallen victims to his ty ranny. gylt will be well enough to remember that the New York Tribune said, two years ago, that if the rebellion were not suppressed by the en suing May, it could not be subdued by the force of arms. And yet this paper has the effrontery to denounce every Jbody who now desires lo stop the effusion of blood.. LOCAL AND MISCELLANEOUS. ANOTHER Da A FT. —The President has issued another proclamation calling for .500,000 more inen. We are aware this will not take the peo ple by surprise, for the reason, it has been anti cipated for some time. Fifty days are given from the date of the proclamation for volunteer ing, and if the call is ot filled on or before the .sth day of September next, the draft will com mence immediately. Volunteers will be accept ed for one, two, or three years, as they may elect, and will be entitled to the bounty provi ded by law. The draft will be made for one year. Now is the time for the "loyal leaguers" to show their patriotism, and "sacrifice the last dollar and the last man," as they have frequent ly said they were willing to do. Your "father" has called you, obey his call, and say, "we're coming father Abraham, five hundred thousand more." Three hundred dollars won't do now; it is neck or nothing. Where are those men who promised the President at the .Sanitary Fair they would go if he called on them? Lctussro how many will be willing to respond and beln :he President to accomplish Lis "particular ob ject." Ye sons of Abraham, come to the rescue!

They were divided into two bodies. They came up the Shenandoah Valley, and one body attacked Martinsburg whilst the other besieged Harper's Ferry. Martinsburg was captured, and stores amounting to three millions of dollars carried off. The column then crossed the Potomac at Williamsport, and by skilful manceuvering forced Sigel upon Ma ryland Heights. The Confederate column at Harper's Ferry besieged Sigel for four days, whilst the other column overran We.-.tern Mary land as far as Monocacy. Ilagerstown was captured and a contribution levied. Thousands irom the Cumber and Valley in Pennsylvania, and r any people in York and Adam 3 counties, left tlteir homes. The harvest was ungathered and spoiling. The authorities at Washington became frightened and sent to Grant for help. He detached Rickctts with a division of troops, vho arrived in Baltimore, and were sent to the Monocacy to aid General Wallace. The arrival of Ricketts and Wallace changed the Confederate plans somewhat. Their troops abandoned Hagerstown and marched against Frederick. The siege of Maryland Heights was raised, and its assailants marching down the sou'n bank of the Potomac sent a flanking party across the ri-er at Point of Rocks. It marc Led up the Monoca -y. Wallace was sur prise 4 and defeated. 110 lost six cannon and many prisoners. He ordered a hasty retreat toward Baltimore. The Administration became more frightened, and the North was in conster nation. Sigel was relieved from command, and his troops, without a leader, could do nothing. The Confederates captured Frederick, and fol lowed Wallace's retreat. From Martinsburg eastward they tore up the Baltimore aud Ohio Railroad. Wallace withdrew to EUicott's Mills, but the Confederate*, after tearing up the rail road, ent their main body south of it, and de tached a cf.valry force towards the Northern Central R-llroad. Washington appeared to be in Imminent per il, and tha Administration huirieu forward re inforcements. The lyth Army Corps, under General Reyno'ds, which had been scat for as a reinforcement for Grant, rs: entering the of tl - Chesapeake. It was at once or dered to Washington. One of Grant's army— the 6th, under Wright—was detached from the lines before Petersburg and sen. to Washington. General Wallace, in Baltimore, wns superseded by General Ord. The Confed t rate ca airy expedition overran all Eastern Mar yland. Twenty-five miles of the Northern Central RaHroad were destroyed, and the Phil adelphia Railroad was seriously injured. The catalry, loaded with plunder, came within six miles of Baltimore and returned to the Confed erate main body. This main body was being busily engaged in coming to the south bank of the Potomac at and near Edward's Ferry. A strong force had been sent towards Washington to guard against surprise. Part of it halted in front of Fort Stephens, on Seventeenth street. Part march ed oward Bladensburg, and cut the telegraph to Baltimore, but did not injure the railroad. The Confederate outposts made a great show, and frightened the people in Washington, but they made no attacks. There was heavy skir mishing, in which the federal loss was about three hundred. Meantime, the Confederate main body was taking an immense amount of plunder to the south side of the Potomac. On Tuesday morning it got safely over. The out posts were called in. Bladensburg and Wash ington suddenly found themselves without an enemy. The Confederate rear crossed to the south bank of the Potomac, and the expedition was over. It costs the North an immense sum, and caused on . of the greatest panics ever wit nessed. By the diversion of forty thousand men from General Grant it may have saved i Petersb :rg. Gen. Foster, who comm nds the Federal Troops at Charleston, recently sent a night ex pedition to surprise a Confederate work on John son's Island. The expedition consisted of t .vo regiments. They sailed in boats to the island. Some of the boats, however, got aground, and the noise alarmed the Confederate garrison. They sallied out of he fort, and capt '-c ! all of the Ft troopc who had landed. Six otr oers and ofio hundred and thirty-seven men were taken prisoner?. The wt of the expedition re turned to Fi#ter'a camps. There is nothing of importance from Grant's army. There is a rumor of "the capture of Pe tersburg. It it were true Secretary Stanton would very quickly tell us of it. Sheridan's cavalry is reported ns having gone towards Han over Couit House to iutercept the Confederate expedition returning from Maryland. Wright's Corps, a division of troops under Kicketts and Wilson's cavalry have been sent from Grant's camp to Washington. General Johnston's army still holds its posi tion on the south bank of the Chattahoocbe, with one corps on the northern bank. General | Sherman's troops are on the northern bank. Sherman has not yet crossed the river, nor has i any movement looking to that end been yet re ported. Sherman is said to have captured three thousand prisoners on the retreat from Kenesaw : Mountain. General Franklin escaped from the enemy and arrived safely in Baltimore. He left there yes terday to go to his home at York, Fennsylva ■ nia. It is stated that General Franklin was tha author of the famous dam which saved the gun boats on tbo Red River expedition. We trust if this be so he will get the credit of h. He is too modest to ask for it. An expedition under General Slocnm march ed east from Vicksburg on July Ist. They en tered Jackson and destroyed a railroad bridge north of the town. They then returned to Vicks burg, having taken twenty prisoners.
