GILMAN, of Orono. Ah Di,t_JOIIA N 8WAZEY of Buonport. 8psr:an Heroism. Those politicians who think the loyal peo ple of the country are governed by mercen ary motive* in baching up the war in defence of our national unity, were never more mit taken in their estimate* of causa and effect. Nor are the loyal people to be discouraged or changed in their purpose to uphold tbe Government, by the expenses and sacriflctu which it costs to do their work. They have counted the cost. They knew when they en gaged in this work; when they swore upon their country's imperilled altar to eootecrak all thsir powers to the cause of Freedom aud the Uuiou, that this vow involved the shed ding of blood and submission to sacrittch. When the father and mother cheered on their brave boy to tbe tight, with tears and a “God bless you,” they kuew the daugers that would environ that boy, and bit need of di vine protection. They did not send him out on a gala day picnic, but to dispute tbe pro gress of armed rebellion and to face, aud it need be, suffer death. There was one of these cases occurred in * town we have in mind, some thirty miles frou this city, lu a neighboring county. Toe sou of aged parents, to a large extent their stay and dependence, went into the army three years since, and with a heart lull of patriotic devotion he continued to perform his duty j faithfully till the past summir, when a rebel ball Inflicted the fatal wound which terminat od bis career. But a short time before our late election his remains were brought homt for burial. While the body remained nn buried beneath the parental roof, a “peace’ Democrat approached the afflicted parent, and said, “well, I suppose by this time you I have bad enough ol' the war, aud will be will ing to vote for peace.” The answer of the stricken old patriot was worthy the best day s of Sparta, “i have suffered much,” said he, “but if it is God’s will I am ready to suffer mure. My country, its unity and its houot are of more couaequence than my life or tht lives of my sons; aud before 1 would see her free institutions destroyed by traitor hands I would suffer tbe loss of my last dollar, lay my last ton upon the altar, and if my pool old life can add a weight to the loyal army, 1 will give that freely also. It is glorious to die In a good ca-ise—in the cause of one’s coun try; it is glorious to bave hero sons, who pre fer death to dishoodr.” Glorious old patriot 1 Would to Heaven tbe land was full of just such men. Hoa would treason go down before the hosts o of loyal tneu, aud the voice of grumbling and disconteut in our midst be silenced for ever I Against such sterling patriotism cup perbeadUm can make no headway. And pre cisely sued devotion to tbe right is tbe hop* of the nation. Tue laud is lull of it. It will net be lost, nor will i t be disappoiuteu in tbe realization ol its desires. The Copperheads becoming Kantankerous. A lew days since we had occasion to speak of the discovery of a lot ol Eniieid rifles found by the U. S. Marshal of Portsmouth, whi e fcttrnrchimr with A WMrmnt. for atnlon i>nnm>r_ stolen from tue N.vy Yard at Kiltery. The Democrats (!) in Portsmouth have taken lb* mailer iu hand, ami regard it as a high handed otfetu-e to have their concealed weapons thus brought to light and seized on suspicion. At oue of their recent meeliugs ue loUowing res olutions, “taking aim” at-the Government and City authorities, were let off : Retolotd, That the recent acts of the Mayor of thu city aud the Pruvost Marshal of this District in entering the buildings of citizen* 01 thu place and uuking searches, and seizures of arms, without warrantor law, and without any reasonable cause, are tyrannical and out rageous, dangerous to the personal safely ol iudividuab, subversive to lbs just rights ol the people, aud deserving the severest censure ol every lover of liberty and good-order. Rtmolced. Tuat we call upon tbe public pros ecutors u> take measures to bring the perpe trators of this crime to justice; aud that we declare it to be ihe duty of every good citizen to resist aud pnuish every attempt to commit similar outrages, to the fullest extent which tbe law will justify. Gen. McClellan and hit Work*. Geo. B. McClellan was placed In command of the largest and best appointed army the world bad ever seen. With 180,000 men he allowed himself to be held at bay before Man aasas by a rebel force of 20,000, and even this force contrived to deceive him by a show of wooden yjtu mi all their ordnance and stores had been carefully secured, and then retreated themselves. Hi* famous peuinsular campaign is thus summed up by a Baltimore paper: When McClellan went to the Peninsula, he had lurnished u. hl,n 158.500 meu, not mclud "Uj *?®0bed him after his retreat to ; jT’an-u h. th“ **re‘il*eat vishel him, July 20 b, he bad renaming hut 80000 men. Phe campaign cost 78,500 men in killed,wound- , ed, deserters, prisoners aud discharge,! and • the fruits ol this frightful waste of rnn, were ■ defeat and disaster, a campaign lost, the iuva . eiou of Mtryland, great public g oom and du content, followed by Copperhead triumphs at , the elections, and a geueral disloyal clamor for a disunion peace. But from that lime to this - we have heard Irorn that party no fault with the “grave digger of the Cbickiihominy.” Burgeon Carr. A communication from New Orleans, pub lished in yesterday’s Press, replied with a good j deal of severity to a communication alleged to have appeared in our columns from Surgeon Carr, of the 20.U Maine itagimeni. The wrher must labor uuder a misapprehen- 1 aion, for we dud upon examination that Sur- ! peon Carr not only was not the Burgeon or the 29 h regiment, but that no communication • from him has appeared in our columns, and we are assured that he has in no way brought tho matters in question before the public. Our New Orleans correspondent must hare allud •d to a Utter written by some other person, j A Copperhead's Opinion of Maine.

Brooks was imported from New York to Instruct the Copperheads of this city how to vote, and remaining over Sunday, tbu* wrote j to 'he New York Eipress on Monday morn tag: | "Sunday, (yesterday) ninety out of every hundred Pulpits in this Slate, were election eer lay,—and about ali day.

Iu Pori laud, here, wa* jublicly behlSunday night, a Republican meet ing, in which three negroes were paraded,pur ewelv to be shown, only to stimulate and ex cite the people.” This vile promulgator of Copperheadlsm and traducer ol the State that gave him birth and >f the people wbo early befriended him, un wittingly tells one trutb, in saying “the Dem aerate Jlniahtd up their cancan Sunday night.” This is not the first lime a truth has been blundered into. Tbe “Republican meeting" which this raa igoant scribbler says was held Sunday night was a meeting in behalf of the education oi i? reed men, in which no word was uttered bear ng upon the question of politics, which wa* idverlised in the Argus ai well as iu the Press. ..wl B/hioh urn etlomluil hv mil dUmuu unil a's, aidresscd very leellngly by a citizen who tbe next day voted tbe Democratic ticket! We ire glad to bear this Copperhead oracle cal hose three beautiful children “negroea.” for it shows the spirit he is of, aud the spirit of that political diabolism which actuates him. As the thousands kuow who saw those children, tney are probably whiter than Brooks ever was; whiter, prettier aud brighter, very likely, ban any child of his, and yet he styles them • negroe* This is one of the latest examples > the ‘‘barbarism,’’ not of slavery, but of Cop psrheadiam. Really, It teems as though Copperhead lead trs feel under no obligations to regard the laws >f God or men if they happen to stand in lh< way of their mad scbe.mes. The attempt il •eU-sacrificing men and women to lilt the veil ■f ignoaance from the oppressed and benight >d. is scouted as a crime, and those poor crea ures upon whom the heel of oppression has iressed heavily for centuries, but are now In voluntarily relieved by the fortunes of war theae leaders would still trample upon as the) would upon the most offensive reptiles. Got iity all such! God pity those who feel oblig 'd, lu order to be true to a mere party, to show heir disloyalty to their country, their God am tseir own hearts,and who,in order to prom up •arty ends, feel compelled to trample upon th naet pressing demands of humanity, do vi ilence to their own best lustincts, and crush Iowa the holiest promptings of the human heart. such is the work of slavery !

This able speech, be it remember- j ed, was delivered long after Mr. Lincoln's election, but before his inauguration.

What reason cau you give to the na tions of the earth to justify It? They will be the calm aud deliberate judges in tbe case! aud to what cause or one overt act can you point, on which to rest the plea of jiuiitica liou? What right has the North assailed? Wuat interest ot the South has been tuvad ed? What justice has been deuied, aud what claim, founded iu justice aud right has been withheld ? Cau either of you to-day name one govermeutal act ol wrong deliber ately and purposely done by the (iovermeut at Washington ol which the South has a right to complain? I challenge the answer! While, ou the other haud, let me show the acts, (and believe me, gentlemen, I am not here the advocate of the North, but X am here the friend, tbe Arm friend and lover ol me South and her institutions, and for this reason X speak thus plainly, lor yours, mine, and every other rnau’s interest, the words ol ru'.h and soberness,) of which l wish you to judge, aud I will only state facts which are clear aud uudeniable, and which now stand as { records authentic Iu the b story of our cuuntry. When we of the South demauded the slave trade, or the importa lion of Africans or the cultivation of our lands, did they not , yield the right lor tweul# years? When we isked a three-Aftlu representation iu Cougress for our slaves, was it not granted? When we : isked and demauded the return of any fugi- ! live from justice, or the recovery of those persons owing labor or allegience, was It not j incorporated in the Cm s-.iiutinn, and again ratiAed and strengthened iu tbe Fugitive Slave Law of 18o0? Do you reply that in many instances they mve violated this compact, aud have not been faithful to their engagements? As indi vidual and local commuuuie*, they may have lone so; but not by the sanction of tbe Uov ■rnment; lor that has always been true to Southern interests. Again, gentlemen, look it another fact: when we have asked that uore territory should be added, that we night spread the institution of slavery, have hey uol yielded to our demands and given is Loalsana. Florida aud Texas, out ol which our states have been carved, and ample ter ritory lor four more 'o be added in due time, if you, by this unwise aud impolitic act do -tot destroy this hope, aud, perhaps, by it lose all, and have your last slave wrenched rooi you by 'torn military rule, a* South Vmerica ami Mexico were; or by ilie viudlc ive degree of universal emancipation which nav reasonably be expected to follow ? But, again, gentlemen, what have we to gain by this proposed change of our relation to the general government? We have always bad the control, and can yet, if we remain in it, md are as united as we have been. We have >ad a majority of the Presidents chosen from the South, as well as tbe control and manage ment of those chosen from the North. We •lave had sixty years of Southern Prealdency o their twenty-four, thus controling the Ex •cultve deparim nL So of the Judges of the Supreme Court, we have had eighteen (root he S iutli, and but eleven from the North, al hough nearly lour tilths of thejudicia! busi es* has arisen In the free States, yet a major ty of th • Court has always beeu from tbe South. This we hJVe required so as to guard sgaiustauy interpretation of the Constitution uufavorab e to us Xu like manner we have neen equally watchful to guard our inter*<t* ei me i.-gisiauvc drain-,, ui government, in choosing the presiding Presidents (pro tem.) of the Senate, we have had twenty-lour, they rlcwen. Speakers ot llie House, we have had weuty four, aud they twelve. While the rna- j irity of the Representatives, from their great -r population have always been from theg North, yet we have generally secured the Speaker, because he, to a great extent, shapes i md controls the legislation of the country.— Nor have we had less control in every depart ment of the general government. Attorney Generals we had fourteen,while the North had out live. Foreign inlnftters we hail eighty «ix, and they but fifty-four. While three fourths of the business which demands diplo matic agents abroad is clearly from the North from their greater commercial interests, yet we have had the principal embassies so as to secure the world’s markets lor our cotton, to bacco and sugar on the liest possible terms.— We have, had a vast majority of the higher of dees of I with army and navy, while a large pro portion of the soldiers and sailors were drawn from the North. Equally so of Clerks, Audi tors and Comptrollers filling the Execu ive Department; the records show that for the Iasi fifty years, of the three thousand thus em ployed we Imve had more than two-tb'rds, while we have had but one third ot the white population of the Republic. Again, look at uuoilier item, aud one, be as- | cured, in winch we have a great and vital in- I teresl; it is that of revenue, or means ot sup- j porting government. From official documents we learn that a Tact on over three-fourths ol ha revenue collected for the support of g< vern ment has uniformly been raised iroui the North. Pause now, while you can, gentlemen, and contemplate carefully aud candidly these im portant items. Look at another necessary nrauchof government, aud learn from stern statistical lads how matters stand in that de partment. 1 mean the mail aud Post Office privileges that we now enjoy under the gene- j ral goveiTimeul as it has been lor years post. I Tiie expense lor the transportation ol the mail in the Free States was, by ibe report of the Po.-tin aster General for lfctJO, a little over $13,- I 000.000, while the income was $19.000,000.— Rut in ilie slave Stales tbe transportation of ibe mail was $1 l,7ltS.(KXl, while the revenue from ihe same was $7.000.2(11,leaving a deficit if $7,115,735. to be supplied by the North for our accommodation, and without which we must have been eulireiy cut off from this moat essential branch of the government. L°aving out of view for tbe present, the countless millions of dollars yon must expend : in a war with the North; there will ba liicus- ] aud'Bd tens of thousands of your bods aud , brothers slain in battle, and offered up as sac- ; rillces upou the altar of ambition—and for what, we ask again? Is it for the overthrow; ol the Americau government, established by ’ our common ancestry, cemented and built up ; by thdr sweat and blond, and founded on the i broad principles of liifiht, Justice and Hu manity. Aud as such, l must declare here, ( as I have often before, and which has been re- : p ;ated by the greatest aud wisest of states- : meu and patriots in this and other lauds, that it la the liest and freest government—the moat equal In its rights—the moat just in its decis- | ions—lh>- most lenient in its measures, aud the most Inspiring in its principles to elevate the race of wen. that the sun in heaven ever | ahniie upon. Now, for you to attempt to overthrow such i a government as this, under which we have j lived for more than three quarters of a cautu- I ry—in which we have gains I our wealth, our standing as a nation, our domestic safety while the elements of peril are around us, with ueace and tranquility accompanied with un l ■minded prosperity and rights uuassaiied—is the height of madness, folly and wickedness to which I can uewber lend my sanction nor my Tote.

He tore up his traitorous ticket and deposited a good Onion vote. We are not; authorized to say that this was the spirit of Old Hickory, but we cannot aee how he can keep quiet. lyThe Richmond Examiner of Sept 0th, said: “The South is actinia controlling part in ths Northern elections.

They were uninteirupted until reaching a point opposite White's U incite, where they met Cortinas with ; a Mexican lorce. Au artillery duel ensued. : when tbe French were compelled to fall back in confusion, aud were closely pursued for three miles, when coming to a piece of chap paral, they made a stand. ! Cortinas opened on the Imperial forces with ' shot and shell. While engaged at this point, . the rebel Col. Ford came dowu the Kio Grande with a huge drove of oat lie for the French, [ but seeing they were engaged w'tb Cortinas, ' j llixy pr. mptly espoused the cause ul the 1 ■ French and opened on the Mexican rear. See I iug this the Imperial army made an attempt to 1 turn the tide of battle, and charged the Mexi cans with the bayonet. They were, however. ; oriveu back to the cover of the ch*puaral.— Cortinas then brought to bear two pieeis of i artillery on Ford’s lorce, obliging him to re i tire. About this time tbe 1st Illinois regiment, stationed at Brazos tiamiagn, hearing the fir- , ing on the Rio Grande, were ordered to march I to the sceue, and arrived in time to witness tbe repulse of the rebels. The gallant "Suck- j er” boys then pitched into Ford and drove ■ him live mites, capturing bis camp equipage aud about thirty stand of at ms. In tbe mean lime Cortinas succeeded In ! pulling the Imperialists to flight, and drove ' them to Bayou del Uio. As his artillery could not compete with tbolr heavy ordnance on shipboard, he withdrew hi* forces to White Kinche and crossed live hundred men Into Texas, where they lay during the night of the 8th by the side of Ibe American troops. Xo sooner had Cortinas crossed the Rio Grande than he lowered the Mexican flag aud hoisted tfee Stars and Stripes, which was en thusiastically greeted by the Mexican soldiers as W'ell as the America*. Ou the 9th Cortinas followed Fort} to the oid battlefield of Keaacca de la Palma, where he rested bis troops for tbe nigbt, while Ford ; fell back to Brown*ville. Cortinas dispatched couriers to Matamoras to order the forces there ; to prepare to move away. Knrlv on the morning of the 8th, live bun- t dred Mexican troops moved up the Kio ; Grande, crossed the river anil came down on the Texas side, attacking Brownsville simul taneously with Cortinas. The struggle lor I Brownsville was brief, and respite,} Jn the de- , feat of the reliels, who were driven from the town, and Cortinas took possession. Tbe exit ( of the rebels was so hasty that they left their flags floating on the Court House and other public buildings, which were soon torn down ' and the Stars and Stripes hoisted, amid the shonta of the citizens and the Mexican sol diers, who were as proud ot our starry banner as our own brave boys. wmm—■ i I —————.WSWSSWS incm. notices. %Jf (lameri of the Daily Prut art net allowed to tellpaptrt on their route!.
