It is bard to believe that anything so utterly vile and contemptible can derive its origin from the natural traits of our own depraved character. We think this is a mistake, and that these wretches, who now disgrace the name of Americans, will after the lapse of the short period which will consign them to eternal 1s Cuny, have the consolation of knowing that they derive their descent through a long line of the children of Belial, whose names histo ry bas preserved to the loathing of every CbrULian people. The Jew* whoso ardently desired the res toration ol the ancient splendor of the He brew race, but who clung to their despotic hierarchy; desecrated the tempie of the Most High by greedy trattie; observed the sublime truths taught in the law by special pleading , sophistries, false interpretations, aud even entire forgeries, these were of the eop)>erhead genus. So degraded had they become, that when the hour and the Man cauic they knew him not; but railed and persecuted him. spat in his face and finally tortured him to death on the flimsiest of pretexts, after having gain ed possession of his person by a fraud and a lie. What luck have they had with the idol they still worship as the Messiah' that was to come? Has he ever come? Will he ever come ? Where is now that haughty and cefiant faction that crucified the Saviour ol the world ? What power less than Omnipotence could find their descendants, albeit, marked by hook ed nose, glittering eye and uncouth jabbet, they infest, like rats, every corner of the hab itable globe? Another prototype of the copperhead may be found in the Roman populace who when Rienzl freed them from the unendurable tjr anniea of the Italian nobles, knew not their hour nor their min. He promised them then liberties, their national greatness aud tei.fjld their ancient fame and splendor, at the price of their blood and their gold, because b< would not,by one magic word,or by sortie tern poriziug compromise, break down this terrible nobility that had for centuries crushed them to the earth, but would insist on fighting battles and gaining bloody victories aud levying til es, they became faint hearted and cowardly and murdered him. Their reward has beet to degenerate into the imbecile, cruel, pusil lanimous race now inhabitating the seven hills, their descendants have, for centuries, been supported by the charities and the sur plus funds of vigorous, manly and prosperous nations, whose glorious destinies have been reached through seas of blood aud enormous burdens of debt. What is the luxury of sloth ful, timid ease, when purchased at the price of nat(nno 1 nLlitnratlnn 9 The Euglish Jacobins of Ihe 17th and l(-th centuries were prototypes of our American copperhead. They revered the past and clam ored for the ancient glory of England. The) wanted the old constitution with their inter pretation—the divine right of Kings, absolute unrestrained and unquestioned; all of which meant the spiritual supremacy of the Pope of Rome, enormous forced levies, religious waref a court of vain courtesans, heartless liler tlnes, senseless twaddlers and bigoted, brutal churchmen, jvho would, while debasing relig ion, the morals and the credit of the nation, ride It to the devil over the backs of an en slaved people. They loved Englaud and sup ported the constituted authorities, but while fed by William's bounty, exalted by bis favor, ana protected by his power, turned a ready ear to the promises o> the exile James, carried bis patents of nobility in tbeir pockets, and held an eager palm for the magic gold of I# Grand Mouarqtte. What has been their fate'.' Despised and scarcely tolerated by the most tolerant and magnanimous government of the time, aud excluded for generations from odi ces of trust aud dignity, they were only al lowed to rise from their knees when their ■ting had been extracted. Contrast the )>osi tion of England now with that nation whose timid glory culminated In the reign of Louis XIV aud with whose destinies the Jacobins would have linked those of the English peo ple. The terrible retribution of the French Revolution and the still more terrible inflic tion ot the insatiate Napoleon have failed to rescue the French people from the deplorable vices and errors which the English Jaco bins of 1088 found in the British Constitu tion. We need pursue the parallel no further. Wherever great principles of truth are confron ted with lltose of error, where virtue coinbats With vice, where liberty struggles with despot ism, there will bad men ho found at work. Eith er openly or covertly they surround us. We feel Jbeir blows and are sensible of their bale ful though secret influence. By hypocrisy, by sophistry, by all manner ef disguises, they deceive, while yet they horrify us. But like the hats aud owls aud reptiles which ter rified Pilgrim as he passed through the valley of the shadow of death, flapped their great wings in his face, tripped up his feet with their slimy coils, and deceived him with gloomy and uncertain noises, [they vanish where once wo emerge into the pure light of the sun and feel the glow of true patriotism warm our breasts. Therefore the atmosphere wherein dwell copperheads is unhealthy, sti fling and noisome. It is only in gloom and darkness that they can work. It is only after a rebel victory that the ghastly smile illumines their faces, and their pestiferous chatter jars discordant on our ears. How do our copperhead friends like the picture, and bow far is the fate of their lineal ancestors to their taste ? » Startling News! Tbe public may expect startling news about both Petersburg and Washington in a few hours. We have received, what we cannot but deem contraband under tbe despotism of “military necessity.” But, there are two playing at the game of capture, aud time will reveal which bacs the ino.-t game—Giant* at Petersburg, or the rebels at Washington. The a bov^ appears in the Advertiser Wed nesday morning. The ear marks are so plain that the most casual reader cannot mistake the author. It was thrown off from a frenzied brain, aud prompted by a heart uot so closely bouud up in the love of country as it might be. There seems to lie underlying the article a sort of indifference that must be painful to all loyal hearts. The reader would naturally infer from its general spirit and tone, that the author would not lie greatly troubled, if, in this “game of capture,” which lie writes so flippant ly about, the rebels at Washington should bag the most game. What wonderful and “start ling news” had been received which he deem ed “contraband" we are at a loss to determine. That cat has uot yet been let out of tbe bag,, and probably she will not be at preseut. And so the country may not be much alarmed. In stead of “bagging game” at Washington, we are inclined to the opinion that these rebel raiders will biess their stars if they can get safely back into Dixie again. It is just as we expected—this rebel movement has been great ly overrated and will not work out any ad vantage to them or their cause. They have destroyed some property, r.o doubt, but tbe damage done is not ball' so great as was supposed. The trutli is, the peo ple of Maryland were more scared titan hurt. Every despatch that comes over Ihe wires teuds to diminish the importance of this raid, and to strike the heart* of copiierheads with sorrow aud disappointment. Good will grow out ol it, and the loyal hearts of the country will be nerved to more energy in crushiugout this rebellion. The trick is harmless, aud the iudomilable Grant has not been frightened away from his position, lie will not take a backtrack as some of his “illustrious prede cessors” have, until he is compelled to do so by an overpowering force. And we opine that force cannot readily be found in rebeldom at the present juncture of affairs. Courage, friends of our Govermneut and I'uiou. Let not your hearts be troubled. The Army of the Potomac is under a leader in whom they have the most implicit confldence. It will yet be led on to victory, and the old flag will again float over Kicbmond, Petersburg, Charleston, and every other city and town in all the States which once constituted our“glc rious Union." Maj. James Partial Jones. I Our readers have already been informed by a telegraphic despatch, that Maj. James P Jones, who has participated in nearly every battle in which the gallant Maine 7th has been ; engaged, aud has several times been wounded, has at length fallen by rebel bullets. Major Jones is the son of Lli Jones, of China, a well known and highly respected (junker preacher who, with his wile, aUo a preacher, has trav elled extensively in this and other countries on religious missious. Major Jones, at the time the war broke out was Principal of an Academy at China Vil lage. He at once gave up his school aud commenced enlisting men for a company, to the surprise of all who understood the rela tion he held to a Society that did not believe in war, aud against the most earnest remom slrances oi his parents and relatives general ly. But his mind was made up to offer his services to the government to aid in putting down the rebellion, and lie succeeded in rais ing a company of which he was appointed captain. Msj. Jones was in all the important battles of the Potomac, from the Bull Kiln until the present time,aud was never known to be in the rear when duty called him to the front. He returned to this city with his regiment, 1 to recruit and returned with it to the Held ot active duty. He was promoted for gallant conduct, to Major, aud it we are rightly ia ! formed, persistently declined further promo tion iu his regiment. Maj. Jones was a It nisi ed scholar, a true patriot, a brave soldier and a true man; and we trust his native State will do honor to his memory. A “ Dkad Bkat."—The Vice Presidcut of the Cuitcd States is now periling his life in the sanguine region of Kitterv. He is doing duty with the State Guard at Port McClary. We heard a soldier remark yesterday that lie ■was a “dead tieat’^nd got promoted to color corporal to shirk (^mrd duty. We clip the above from the Argus. We are sorry to sec such flings aud slurs in our contemporary on a patriotic gentleman who is willing to descend from his high office and perform military duty for liis^tountry in this hour of its peril. It is somewhat strange and mysterious that the eyes of the Argus should be so constantly fixed upon loyal men who are striving to preserve the nation's life, and seldom cast one glance at the reliel vipers who are gnawing at its vitals. These sharp eyes detect a thousand faults in loyal men whiie they don’t see one in the rebels. Why not fasten one of its eyes at least, on Breckin ridge, their once beloved Vice President, and spy out faults in him ? O, no, not an eye on this rebel, but a hundred on our loyal Vice President! President Lincoln receives jruu dreds of stabs with a coarse, poisoned spear irora this journal, while it seldom pricks Jell Davis with the point of a pm. “Thereby bangs a tabs," but we won't tell it now. UHAKACTEIIISTIC <11 UltAN'T.— Mot {OUg since the General was walking around the docks at City Point, when he stopped to see the negroes roll a barrel of Uacou on board a boat. The darkies could not readily move it, pad a crusty lieutenant who stood near, draped in his due blue clothes, shouted. “You <1-d niggers, push harder or get another to help you!" Without saying a word, Gen. Grant pulled up his sleeves and assisted the negroes to roll the barrel on the boat; thou, wiping his bauds with his handkerchief, he moved quietly away. The reader eau imag ine how that second lieuten&ut felt on the oc casion The General was draped in c. ar e homespun, with his hat drawn over iiis eyes, and did not look much like the Commander in-chief of the United States army. This lieu tenant was taught a valuable lesson, and saw the power of the saying, “Example before precept.” When will such upstarts iearu wisdom? The Boston Post of yesterday says: “Heavy bring at sea some ten or fifteen miles from Portland, Maine, was heard about one o’clock yesterday afternoon.” That is news indeed. There waa a clam bake oil Little Chebeague, about that time, and the “L real” of the Argus was there; and possibly he might have tired oil his pistol Distance ma<t have lent power lo the report, if the Bostonians heard it. Sensible Advice. The people of Massachusetts, who are mak ing zealous efforts to secure the commutation of Green's sentence for the Malden murder, in the heat of their efforts are very likely to make a culprit out a fool, that he has no braiu, that he is at least a seuii-idiot. Tile Manches ter Mirror, relerriug to this effort, says: Now we are opposed to capital punishment and hope Green will not be hung, but that he may be confined for liie; but, for pity’s sake, dou t stultify the people of Maiden so much, as to call the murderer an idiot, iu order to get ilia sentence commuted. Green was a leading politician, and the Postmaster in Mal den, aud it is not a very high compliment to their intelligence, to say that they were led by, and had ior a Postmaster, a semi-idiot._ Get the man’s sentence commuted, but to do it don’t ignore probabilities. ^"During the shower on Monday night the lightning struck a dwelling house on the east side of tire river, in Augusta, setting it on fire, but the fire was extinguished with little damage. National Sailors' Fair, We beg to call the attention of our readers to the following circular in behalf of a noble enterprise in which we know the poople of this city and State will take a deep interest. Maine from the number of hpr seamen in the navy is specially concerned in this philan thropic work. We shall recur to the subject in a few days: National sailors' fair.—In view of the gigantic and noble efforts of tile "Sanitary Commission" in aid of the Soldiers of our couu try, in this her hour of petil, it has been thought by some mat tbeclaimsto sympathy and support ol an equally deserving cia»B, viz: the Sailors, Marines and others ot our Naval service, have beeu too little remembered. It is therefore proposed to make au effort in their behalf, by providiug a Home lor tile disabled, where in addition to the comforts which that name implies, they uiay enjoy the added re ilection that their valuable services to the country are appreciated by a grateful corn i munity, who are disposed iu this way to ex press their interest iu their welfare. In accordance with this suggestion,it is pro posed to hold a Fair iu November next, iu Boston, Mass, and a call is therefore made on tile loyal and patriotic men and women ol our land, to aid in the good cause by contribution, , either by mouey or articles of taste and utili ty : aud it is confidently believed that the sub ject need only be brought before the public, to enlist the sympathy aud co-operation of all. April 16,1864. The undersigned ask the co operation of all patriotic citizens in aid ol the objects of the foregoing circular. It may noth - generally known that, accord ing to the necessary rules ol the s« rvice, those who ore suffering or invalid from wounds or incurable disease, can only remain a limited lime in the hospitals—the exception being a service oftweniy years in the navy or marine corps. It follows therefore that very rnsny of this invaluable class ol citizens, who have braved every peril and dauger iu delence of the Hag ot our country, are and will lie cast upon the world, helpless and without the means of sup port—tor to those whose constitutions are broken by disease and exposure, no pensions sre allowed, and to those who are disabled by wounds, an entirely iu-ulHcieut one lor their comfortable support. Tuo present time is believed to be more op portune to start this noble charity than one more remote; they therefore now make this appeal to the men at home, who have lieeu in security, while other portions of our fellow citizens have beeu risking their lives and their health in defence ol the country, to come for ward aud contribute lilterally,—to the rich from their almudance,—to others according ■ to their ability, and to ill a geuerous sympa thy To those earnest and self-sacrificing women wlm are most keenly alive to every demand of suffering humanity, au appeal of this kind has ever met with a response worthy of them selves and tlie object for which it is asked; and it is sincerely believed that a hearty co-operation upon their part will insure its success, aud furnish the means to establish one of the noblest and most necessary chariti es of our common count! v.

M\ DeakMauam:—The barrel forward ed by you to our care “lor the soldiers,”' was received some three or four days since, but au unusual press of cares has prevented me from acknowledging it before. Youra was a valuable assortment, the rags were very nice aud everything came in good style. The cider was particularly grateful to some patients, who bad beer, prisoners and had some marked symptoms of the ‘•scurvy.” In bebalt of the wounded uieu I thank the ladies most heartily for their prompt response to our call for rags, liut, aud bandages, Ac. I think it must be pleasant to know that one’s contributions are appreciated. I took some of the “aolt crackers” to our Maine men and they were so delighted; oue a Standish man said, "Well if that isn't a 'Blake cracker,’ ” as be saw that familiar stamp”E. Blake,”“why,” said be, “I have seen those every week since I can remember, till three years ago, and have not seen one since I enlisted.” A little thing to be sure, but little tilings are often what Wc have dow some ten or eleven hundred men, are a little thinned out, those who are able to be moved are transported farther North preparatory to others coining in from the battle fields around Kichmond. 1 often wish those goal women who are working so umiriugly for the wouuded soldiers, could go with me on oue morning's round. I am sure you would be surprised at tbe al most universal cheerfulness aud hopefulness of the noble sufferers. .Seldom does a man com plain, aud eveu loose who are most seriously wounded, seem to take a pride in their powers of endurance of suffering without complaining. And these are not the only brave souls that are being developed by the strange times that are upon us, as I have good reasou to know. The mothers, wives, and sisters, who come to us day after day looking for a son, husband, or brother—alas! how often to (lud them dead, and perhaps buried—these are Ihe heroines of the present day ; ami as I sec their suffer ings, 1 can but leel how light iu comparison are < ur labors and sacrifices. Let us still la bor aud wait, doing with alacrity what wccan to assist iu binding up the wounds of their loved ones, and by outsympathiesand prayers helping to bear their burdens. That you msy lie prospered in all your en deavors for the relief ol the suffering, he re warded a buudrtd fold iu this world, and ev erlasting life in the world to come, is the prayer of your leHow laborer. A. E. Jackson, Chaplain’s wife. P. S. I must always write hastily for my tune is limited and I have many letters to write every day. ’ A. E. J. The Invasion.—The Philadelphia Press says of this invasion, “it it is worthily opposed, it will tie fatal to the rebellion. If it isuotop po*ed, it may lie a severe blow to (ieu. Grant. The invasion is not formidable in numbers; it is dangerous only so far as our apatby makes it so. Don't wait to send troops to Baltimore. Let men go. You will find a place and a musket wbtu you get there. If this rebel force is defeated, victory is certain in front of Kiehmond.” “The simple fact that the enemy are mov ing ou Baltimore or Washington, not iuto the Cumberland Valley, proves the movement to be an Invasion not a raid. The fact that the main army of Lee still opposes Grant, proves that it is not an invasion iu great force. The enemy solely depends upon the failure of the North to resist.” “Lee has divided his army. He may have kept three-fourths aud seut one-fourth of it into Maryland. If we will deal with the in vasion, Graut will take rare of Lee. This is the best opportunity that lias yet existed for the destruction of the rebellion. The iuva ion Is a desperate attempt, aud indicates the desperation of the rebel cause.” “The rebels cannot be reinforced. If they are beaten they are destroyed. This should inspire us with the determination that the rebels shall not re-cross the Potomac. . - " ■■-r.j-1-=—— -■-<?

The London Globe states that the Great Kast : era has just taken 3000 tons of coal on hoard, i and will shortly leave Liverpool for Sheer ness, or Deptford, where she will be fitted with water tanks iu which the Atlantic cable now being made by Messrs.

Low of California, at an immense meeting in San Francisco, said iu speaking of the candidates for the next Presidency: “In California, where Fremont is known and appre ciated, 1 will only say that, in my opinion, he is an ambitious bad man—one who would prefer p> reign in hell rather than serve in heaveu. 1 “Rule or ruin” is his motto. ft low I citixens, that he does neither.” i BTColonel N. G. Taylor is speaking in the | country towns of New York in behalf of the suffering people of East Tennessee. SyTlic following advertisement was sent to a newspaper for insertion, by an Irishman, of , course, for who ever knew anybody but an Irishman to do anything funny: “If the gentle man who keeps a shoemaker’s shop with a red head, will return the umbrella to a young lady with an ivory handle, he will hear sometiang to her advantage.’’ jy Dr. Cheever, at the mass meeting of the anti-slavery supporters of Fremont in New York, had much to say of the short comings of the administration. Everybody admits that ' President Lincoln’is an honest man, liberally en ; lowed with good common sense, and if he has made mistakes during the term nearly expired, j the people intend to give him an opportunity of correcting them during the next four years. yiheNew YorlfCommercial Advertiser says the prices of domestic goods have kept SO per cent, ahead of the advance in the price of gold. This is purely the result of s|>eculation, and must end in a crash among speculators. Spec ulation, oil the scale it is now conducted, tends | to decrease consumption and increase produc S tioti, and thus ultimately produces a fall in prices. jy.Vn exchange states that a lady who died of cholera and was laid out by her friends, was found the following night standing at the cup board eating cucumber pickles, or in other words: They left her “a laying in” white, Prepared for the grave’s quiet slumbers, Hut they found her the very next night, “A laving in” pickled cucumbers ' Capt. Semmes. The editor of the Toronto (ilolie discourses as loliows about this pirate Captain: He had every advautage on his side. He had a swift vessel, which enabled him to run away Irotn all pursuers. He had sufficient guns ou hoard to render the resistance of any mere trader hopeless. He had the largest t ocean commerce possessed by any nation, save one, to attack and pillage. He bad the seas of the whole world to roam over, with the certainty that be would llnd American vessels sailing thereon. And he took command at a time when the whole naval force of the Union was employed in blockading the imineuse coast line 01 me seceueu .-siai;s. li. WHU me chances thus in his favor, he had not wrought great destruction to American commerce, he would indeed have proved himself one of the ’ most incompetent officers whoever had com mand ol a ship. But in that he did succeed, we tail to find that he thereby earned auy right to hero-worship. His work was the most inglorious a sailor can lie called upon to perform: piracy in fact aud in deed, saved on ly from being legally so by the commission he held from the Government which he served. Vet this man, we are sorry to kuow, whenev er lie lias touched at a British port, has been feted, applauded and caressed by that class of people, everywhere to be found, who mistake notoriety for merit. Always running away from combat upon anything like equal terms, entering upon the contest with the Kearsarge only when he could not avoid it. A correspondent of the Globe writes as follows: On the whole, the effect of this Federal victory has been decidedly favorable to the American cause in this country. It was just such an iocideul as was needed to revive the drooping spirits of the friends of the Union, and to call forth that expression of sympathy which is never withheld from those who per form a really daring and successful exploit. Fourth of July in New Brunswick. A Fredericksburg correspondent of the Boston Journal says the American citizens of that city, and sojourners assembled at the Bray ley House to celebrate the glorious Fourth: Mr. Oakes of Maine, presided on the occa sion, Messrs. Phillips of lthode island, and Kicker of Maine acting as Secretaries. Sen timents, embracing “Our Country,” (respond ed to by Dr. Giahara ot Maine.) “United States and British Empire,” (by Kev. Mr. Phillips of it. I. and Him. Mr. Currie of X. B..) “The President of the United States,” (by the Kev. Mr. Libby of Xew Hampshire;) "The Queen of England,” (by the Bight Hon. Mr Tilley, Provincial Secretary of X. B ,) and many others were offered, aud received with patriotic and hearty approval. The national odes of America and England, and patriotic airs were sung with charming effect by that beautiful and accomplished American lady. Mrs. M. E. K. International courtesies were exchanged between the Provinces and States, and the Provincial gentlemen present were strong in assurances of their faith in our struggle for free government aud its ultimate success. Wab os the Bokdek.—The Bangor Whig says S'. Stephens, X. B , was considerably ex cited one evening last w eek by some musket balls being fired into that towu from a boat in the river. On investigation, it seems that Mr. Hay, oi the Herald, and Mr. Lee, Cashier of the Calais Bank, had started to go down the rivet fishing, aud while waiting for the tide, amused themselves by firing at the reflection of a light on the water. Several shots were fired, aud, glancing ou tne surface, went over into the town, aud several persons narrowly escaped injury. The inhabitants of St. Steph ens turned out en masse, aud captured the at tacking party, but finally releascd|them, prom ising Hay a coat of tar and feathers if he should ever show himself on their side of the river. At last accounts everything was quiet along the lines. Secretary Fessenden and the Bankers. The impression nude by Secretary Fessen den in his interview with the bankers yester day was highly favorable to his integrity,can dor, busiuess perception, and accessibility to advice. In a speech of some length, in w bich he explained the financial situation and his Immediate wants, he is understood to have stated that he has, at present, no other policy than to administer his department according to circumstances, and to meet in the beat practical manner the obligations ot tbe gov ernment as they fall due. This flexible sys tem, or, if yuu will, this absence of a deflnite policy, is a necessity imposed upou him by the exigencies of the boor, aud ought not to be harshly criticised. |N. V. World. | Tne Grand Trunk The Montreal papers are complaining be cause the ageuls of the Grand Trunk are settling with the emigrants who were injured in the late rail-road disaster. The emigrioU are ignorant of their rights, say thejournals, and take ten dollars for damages, when they might obtain thousands. Some cases are ex posed, where great injury was done to fami ilies, and but small pay recieved for it. The Montreal Witness is especially anxious that the rights of these sufferers should be pro tected.
