Iti our issue yesterday, we published an ac count of the recent local elections in Connecti cut, which showed large gain* for the Demo cratic party since last spring. We are now permitted to record glorious { news from little Delaware. The election on Tuesday last throughout that State for Judges : and Inspectors, is the grandest triumph over achieved by the Democracy of Delaware. A* telegram from the Associated Press, gives the following magnificent result : New Castle county, Democratic majority, 62 j Sussex, do do do 450 : Kent, do do do 903 making a majority in the State of 1,405 In j October, 1862, the Abolitionists had 432 ma jority in New Castle, We have still further returns from Connecti cut. Seven towns in addition to those reported yesterday, have been carried by large Demo cratic majorities. Delaware and Connecticut have done well! J Their Democracy have responded nobly to the ■ nominations of McCLELLAN and PENDLE- j ' TON. They have indignantly rebuked the : imbecile nd corrupt Administration at Wash- i 1 ington. Let the ball roli on ! Oa Tuesday 1 ' next Pennsylvania will follow their example.— ' FREEMEN OF THK OLD KEYSTONE! wheel into ' line, for MeCLELL AN, PENDLETON, and ! i the UNION!— Age, Oct., 6. A PLEA FOR THE COPPERHEADS. ' f By a True Union Man. i It is possible that the title of this writing | may give offense to many who glory in the i J name of ''Democrat,*' and who would indig- j I tiantly scorn to utter a word of depreciation or j ' apology for their conduct or their 1 agreed—and while my voice-is not yet harmon- t ! ized with the "bondman's key," nor can I speak t i wish "bated breath and whispering humble- 1 ! ness," yet I hare resolved to accept the new f I and injurious epithet of "Copperhead." For i j why should the Democrats of theso dark and * | bloody days hope to escape trials such as were j j endured by the fatheia of their political faith ? > j The Monarchy men, the Tories and the Refu- < gees during the Revolution, who became Fed- ' eralists upon formation of the Constitution, ! denounced the Democrats of that day as "Jac-1 chins" and "infidels," and concentrated their 1 venom by !txing the name of "Democrat" up-j ' on our forefathers and party predecessors, as j the intensely bitter essenco of contumely and ! < reproach. The lineal and party descendants 1 of those same Torie3 and Refugees and Fed- ' eralists have at various periods since abused the Democrats by calling them "Buck- ' 1 tails," "Barn Burners." "Loco-Focos," and in j later years their termagant violence culmina- j I ted in the terms, "Dough Faces" and "UNION j 1 SAVERS." And this 1 last epithet seemed to de- 1 light our il'.-tongued slanderers better than any that they had Wore happened upon. To sneer at us because we were said to be "sitting up" all . our weary nights with the prostrate and expir ing UNION, seemed to be the chief pleasure of those who now tyrannize over the fragment of our country, and who destroyed the Union in spite of all our care and devotion to that bles sed compact. Yet —they called us "UNION SAVERS," with as much contempt and bitter- : ticss of spirit as tiiey now call us "Copper- j heads"- —and I shall do what I can to show j that "Union Savers," and "Copperhead" are synonvmous. Nor shall I complain that the j Tories and Refugees and Blue-Light Federalists, and their successors in traitorous blood and po- ! 1 litical heresy, chose for themselves such hand- j some party appellations as "Federalists." "Na- j tionai Republicans," "Anti-Masons," "Whigs," "Free-Soilers." "Native Americans," and— ; Heaven pardon their desecrating impudence— "Union Men!" Let them bloviate, for their little hour, upon their triumph over the "Union 1 Savers," and over the ruined Union itself, now | past nursing and surgery, and unhappily not i requiring the anxious care of those who sought , to save it, arid ; *3at up" with it till its ex 1 tremcst hour. I confess tho profoundest sor- , row that Abolitionists and Disunionists have ' t driven away the watchers and strangled the i j Union on its bed of pain ; what matters ii now ! whether they -ail "Union Savers" or "Cop- j i 1 p-'rheads," when our election? are controlled by bayonets, when the sacred writ of habeas cor pu* is suspended, and when whatever we ar3 allowed of personal liberty is held by the suf ferance o r an awkward usurper and his sat raps * But I shall plead for the "UNION SAVERS," ( , ROW "Copperh- ads," that they governed this , once happy country, for the greater part of its , existence, with wisdom and success. They did not diminish its .e.ritory—but they acquired from Frr.nce. Spein, Mexico and various Indian tribes, by cheap and honest pur chase, cr Lv square fighting and honorable ! treat millions upo- millions of acres of fertile - ■ lands —they peopled those territories with white immigrants, induced to come hither by ' lil.-cral laws of naturalization, which were pa?- 5 ■ sed and sustained against repeated attacks of j Federalists, Plug-Uglies, Church-Burners and ! Know-Ivnoth' -s. ; They fought the wsr of .1 812, and in spite lof Blue Light Federalists, (the ancestors, per • sonaT andpoTitical. of the Abolitionists,j they Freedom of Thought and Opinion. BEDFORD, PA., FRIDAY MORNING OCTOBER ,14 1864. i secured for our commerce the "freedom of the | seas." They published and declared to the world the "Monroe Doctrine," and they maintained that doctrine as long as they were nbletoinain- I tain tho Union. They vindicated the honor of the country and greatly extended its boundaries and ma ; teml wealth by the wat with Mexico. And this they achieved, though the now President of the United Slates, then a Congressm in, re fused to vote a dollar to the war, aud though ! the people who now rule over ns and revel in l in our miseries, wished that our soldiers in Mexico would be welcomed with "bloody hands and hospitable graves !" They made France (in the days of the Un | ion-Saver-Copperhead Jackson,) pay the debt she honestly owed to our despoiled merchants. They quelied rebellious South Carolina (by the Union-Saving Jackson) and brought her under the laws of the Union, without shed ding cue drop of fraternal blood. They were able to protect our frontiers against tens of thousands of hostile Indians, and to chastise them into snb'niission. They preserved the commerce and manufac tures of the country, advanced and protected the private pursuits of ail, and handed down to our present incompetent rulers a currency of gold and silver, and paper convertible into hard money at any moment. They steadfastly ret used to blood religion with politics or to permit tho unnatural con junction of Church and State. "Freedom to worship God" after the dictates of his own conscience, they claimed for every human be ing. Christian Churches were never, by their consent, turned into panizan club-rooms ; po- i litical sermonizers were not allowed to dese- ! crate tho Sabbath and insult the unwilling ears of tiieir auditors with electioneering stump speeches. They respected the rights of tho States, and of every citizen—presented untainted the pub lic credit at home an 1 abroad, an l during tiieir golden sway, prosperiiy, liberty uml brotherly harmony pervaded every corner of the Repub lic, and our flag was honored aud welcomed in every ocean. And having made such a gldriou? record as this, shall we be dismayed or ashamed when j our incapable, onvenomed successors iu power sneer at us us "Union Savers" and "Copper vain tliat we are denounced as un true to our country in the face of our coun try's history. If the safety, honor and wel fare of our people demanded that we should sustain the wretched charlatans who now ad minister the government, we would surely do so. As traditional "Union Savers," we would join hands to save the Union, even with men as base and corrupt as those who now rule over us—and this we have tried to do e\er since the wai commenced. But how can we coalesce with Lincoln, the Destroyer, who tells "all whom it may con cern," that except upon his own conditions and amendments, the Union shall not bo restored f This monster of heartless presumption who claims for himself all the prerogatives of an absolute king, and all the smutty license of a king's fool, will make no peace that does not secure to the negro an equal sharo in'fbis glo rious government, which was ordained for white men and for white men only. Be it here especially remembered, that the "Union Savers" and "Copperheads' 1 are all white men, and, God pardon their perverse prejudice, while they will not oppress any sort of people, they do prafer their own race to any other on the face of tho earth. The "Union Savers," otherwise "Copper heads," cannot support Lincoln, because 1. He has ignored and spurned tho Crit tenden Resolution passed in July, 1861, and refuses to conduct the war under that unani mous, solemn agreement of all politic.:! parties of the North as to how and for what tho war should be waged. 2. Ho has suffered the substance of the na tion, wrested through relentless taxation, to be squandered by Simon Cameron and hordes of plunderers like unto him, and he has deliber -1 ately assumed the sins of Cameron for kim i self. i 3. He has utterly driven out from circula tion the constitutional coin of the country, and has substituted for it an illegal issue, worth but ' ' forty specie cents on the dollar. 4. He has suffered our commerce and our foreign and inland commercial marine to be destroyed by rebel cruisers and guerrillas, when he had abundant means to protect them on riv er and on sea. 5. Ho has for two years permitted a few i contemptible bands of Indians to devastate the country and plunder and murder the people all ! along the Western frontier-, while be has near ,y a million of soldiers under arms a nd in the | field. 6. He has imprisoned free men, silenced free speech tvnd destroyed free presses,—and this for the temperate discussions of public top ic?, not for abuse of himself nor of bis office, —no such abuse as was poured out without re ] morse and without himierance, upon Jefferson and Jackson, has ever been visited upon his unworthy head. 7. His cruel and relenllesg policy baa caus !ed the killing and wounding of hundreds of thousands of Lis countrymen, whom he has sacrificed for the Negro aud not for the Union, and still he ca-N for more. 8. He' as been the means o*" making wid ow? an l orphans who are counted by millions, and yet he will not attempt to put a stop to the horrid carnage. 9. He has taxed without judgment and without remorse —he na? taxed every interest and every pursuit, every article of food or raiment, to till the pockets of shoddy con tractors and peculating general?, until tho people fairly groan with anguish ap ' indigna tion. 10. lie is the author of the untold suffer ings of white Federal prisoners in rebel pris -1 ons, and stubbornly refuses to show them mer cy or relief. Of all these crimes and outrages the skirts of "Union Savers" and "Copperhads" are wholly clear. Unjust, oppressive and tyranni cal as have been the laws of Lincoln's own lawless c ' -'s, the "Union Savers" and "Cop perhea nave borne with them all patiently hoping, that through their long suffering the Union might be restored. We have paid all the taxes levied upon us, however onerous, and have enjoined upon all men to do likewise; we have enlisted in the armies of the Union, and the Union generals can bear testimony toi%ur courage and consistency in the cause. We have not resisted any calf of the Provost Mar shals, nor any of the Tax Collectors of whom Mr. Lincoln sends us so many. No "Copper head" has grown rich by extortion tike Lin coln's satraps, Butler of Massachusetts, Andy Johnson of Tennessee, and the convicted and pardoned Fish, at Baltimore, and like tho iu famous Cameron and the crew of Contractors. No "Copperhead," has like I'almer, an officer in New Xo'k Custom House, supplied tho en emy with articles required by them to carry on the war. No "Copperhead," like Howard, the pardoned forger, has been accused of forging any public documents with the name of Mr. Lincoln attached. All these and similar crimes against the State, all these crimes against the Treasury, against public morals, have baen per petrated by men who have been put into office, . protected and frequently pardoned by Abraham I Lincoln or his Cabinet. Because Lincoln and his admirers and ?up | porters have committed the crimes here detail j ed, and others as numerous as the sand on the seashore, the-"Union Savers" and "Copper heads" cannot support him for President. He j cannot make war as a Christian ruler should, and he will not make peace as any honest i .statesman can. Therefore,although we knowjhow comfortable and pleasant, it is to bow down j and worship those in authority, the '■'■ Union Sa. j vers" cannot burn incense at Lincoln's revolt- : ing and blood-stained shrine. They must op- j pose Abraham Lincoln and all his works and j ways, because, as has been shown, he is unfit ; to rule oven the smallest fragment of the coun- j try, and BECAUSE HE CANNOT AND WILL ; NOT LTIISTOUK AND SAVE THE UNION. A Bone for Abolition Farmers to Gnaw. ] Stop a moment, honest Frocsoilcr, we want to reason witli you. Let your plow stand in the furrow, breathe your horses, and put on your thinking-cap. You believe in the Eman cipation Proclamation ? ''Yes." You don't want the President to back out of it T "No." The war, then, must, go on, so far as yonr vote can influence it, till the slaves are all free. Now, honest friend, have yon ever thought j what this experiment of freeing ail negroes is , likely to cost you ? Arc you willing to mortg-ige your farm for half ite value for your share in defraying the expenses? Why, dear man*, it is already mortgaged to nearly that extent and every year the war is continued patches this mortgage with another on the back of it. Give ! your attention a moment, and we will make this as ! plain asthe rail fence that divides your farm from your neighbors. Yon must, of course, see that the | public debt is a mortgage on the property of the , whole Gountry, for. this property may be taken by law to pay it. If you were so rich as to j own half of the property you would owe half the debt; if you own a hundredth or a thous andth part of the property; that is your share of the debt. Now it so happens that tins is a thing that is easily got at; so that if you will tell us the value your farm we will tell you what part of it is already mortgaged to the Government ? We arc not going to impose up on you by any statements which we have cook-! Ed up to serve a purpose; the figur 3 we will use are taken from documents prepared by Re publican officials ; and as for the arithmetic, you arc ju?t as competent to verify our calcu lations as we are to make them. So, good farmer Gripedollar give heed! If you will call on the member of Congress for yonr fi tri " or at any ncwspn|a;r office in your county, you can get an opportunity to ex amine a book prepared by Mr. Kcnnoy, chief of the census bureau, containing tho figures of I the census. Turn to page one hundred and ninety-four, and you will find a table giving til" assessed value of nil the real estate in every state and territory of the United States. You will observe by the footing at the bottom of the column that it amounts in all to $0,973,- 106,049. If you will then take out and add together the figures representing the real estate of the slave states, the amount will be $2,377,- 904, 357. Subtracting thi J fiv ■ the whole you will have left $595,191,692 as the toial assessed value of all the lauJ and buildings i.i tiie free states and the territories: of which your farm and the buildings and improvements upon it are it part. Now in finding the debt vrhich stands against this property, wo wiii lead you on ground which you must regard equally solid. Look up almost any fib of a city newspaper for the month of July b.*st, and you will find in the financial column an official statement, of tho public debt as it existed on tho sth of July, purporting to be taken from the ■ books of the Treasury Department, and signed by the acting secretary of the treasury. Accord ing to this statement the debt was at that date ?1,792,867,040. A few days previous to the publication of theso figures, the secretary made a e mi-official statement that the debt was then increasing at .he rate of s*2,soo,o<X> a day.— There have intervened since the fith of July up to this 26th day of September, eighty-three days, which, at that, rate vyould bring an addi tion to the debt of $217,!>0Cf.000 which ad . j ded to the amount on the sth of July, makes > | the present debt $2,010,267,010. There arc [ tli© best reasons for supposing the debt te be much larger, but we take the official figures be- WHOLE NUMBER, 1969 •- | cause they cannot expose us to any suspicion i- J of exaggeration. •-j With these data, it is easy to dctermino tin I amount of mor.gage which rests on a:iy par s ticular farm by reason of the public debt. 11 e | the farm be worth $9,009, it is mortgaged U - j the government for $4,000; if it is worth s4>,- i 500, it is mortgaged $2,000: and in the like - proportion for any larger or smaller value..— f \ Nearly half of your farm is already gone ; four s 1 years more of war would make the mortgage 1 to the public creditors about equal to its assess ! Ed value. Are you willing to prosecute the ex > peiimer.t of freeing the negroes at this cost? | By tlie time the is completed, you • will be as much a slave as the negroes thnn s selves. For in what does slavery consist, %ut in one man's laboring and another living n le gal title to tho fruits of his labofe ? The slave . j labors and the master pockets his earning. You . labor, and your earning?, alt but a" small sub • sistence, will go to pay for tho luxury of the i Emancipation proclamation Are you soenam . j ored of this prospect that you will vote for j doubling the present heavy mortgage winch ■ the government holds on your farm ? Ponder j this thing well in your own mind ; talk it o ver with your neighbors; an£ see if there is , | any way of getting rid of the conclusion that ! a proportionate share of the public debt is a mortgage on your property. — The World. i THE GREAT CRIMINAL CASE. j THE PEOFUS OF THE "{ Supreme Court of the UNITED STATES Ballot Box—Octo versvr f ber & November THE ABOLITION PARTY J Terms, 1864.

Cor win with the Gardiner claim. .. ...5768 00 • I claim and receive fur 27 days 2lb 00 i | llalance to hi. 11 legally entitled, 5.>2 00 i Sly claim embraces seven days in traveling i on summons of the Committee of Washington from my residence in Tennessee —after the first adjournment of the Committee. Having made for mileage, I have no doubt of the ■ legality of the charge of S7OB. Hut I doubt my : moral right to more than pay for the days actu ' ally engaged in the service, and accordingly de cline to receive (he balance. ; [Signed.] ANDREW JOHNSON. We fancy that we hear some enthusiastic Abolitionist reading this out, with an itnpres i sivo voice, to a knot of "Copperheads," and ! looking up when he gets through with, exultant eyes, to see the effect; we hear him inquiring, "what do you think of that kind of pubiic vir tue, sir? It's Roman, eh ? This is our man for ' Vice Prceident, sir—that's Mr. Lincoln's mili : fary Governor of Tennessee, sir. W ould.n t touch a pennv of money that wasn't his, not sir, if the Secretary of the Treasury get down on his knees and begged him, sir." We can imagine the discomfiture of this worthy gentle man when somebody steps up and shows him ' the evidence that the virtuous Mr. Johnson, ' either impelled bv an empty pocket or a dccay i ing conscience, went back, shortly after this display of integrity, receipted lor the remaining | $552. and actually walked off with his purso i full of money to which, by his own written | confession, lie had no "moral right." The re ! cords at Washington prove this damning fact, j which leaves the military Governor and aapi | rant to the Vice Presidency in a sad plight. •; The Prospect. We hear such news from all quarters of tho ' country, and especially from our own Comraou -1 wealth, as give us glorious assurance of victory at the coming election. In many of the dis i tricts from which we have hoard, there has j been an actual counting oi noses—an enumer ation cf voters, by blocking the wards in towns, j and canvassing the country districts, and the ' number of Democratic freemen has been found so great & ■ to astonLh even the roost sanguine friend of the cause. We believe that this state i mil poll a Democratic vote altogether unpreceden s ted. In fact, this is the opinion of the mana -1 ges and wire-pullers of the Abolition party, j who <. .tcrtain a serious expection not of out - voting us, but of out-counting us, a species of i slieght-of-hand in which long practice has made 1 them dexterous. Let the people beware of i frauds —for on fraud alone do our adversaries 1 jVdy ft... success. Let every man who can spera : a day, icatch the polls and see tv. o cotes, and os- I | peciaUy let a careful count Ix 3 kept of how • ! many votes arc actually cast, in the aggregate. . Che Democrats can thin, by keeping a careful - j (ally of their own vote, ascertain if a single - < fraudulent ballot bits been put into the box, or 12 1 counted as put .them. If tf\pso, amU.aU the ; otbn- ; preaauton wl.:<ih" cwyswevise, - j are adopted throughout the country, we are as i sure vf the triumphant election of McCleilan ,J and Kendlttpn as we are to- of ' tx&s>£.4£k - j scßjeoiJ^ y < is actually ou our backs — Age
