WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 23. 1863.
Train Own. Hoaeorans.
Fpr aome dajs past we iiave felt rather
gtoqnij in consequence of the unfavora
ble reports from the late engagement be
tween the forces of Gens. Rosecrans and
.Bragg* the Ijatter being reinforced by sev
ergi divisions of Gen. Lee’s army, and
also from Beauregard's army at Charles
■ ton. Gen.; Lee is said to have been in
command. ; The fighting on Saturday and
Sunday is said to have been terrific. Al
one time the rebels were driven back, and
again they drove the Union forces, and on
Sunday night each 'army occupied about
the same positioh held when the fight com
menced.’ On Sunday night, Roaecrans
moved bis ariny back to Chattanooga,
the fight having taken place some ten
miles South-east of that place. This
movement was rendered necessary jn con
sequence of the heavy reinforcements the
rebels were;receiving, and in order to se
eure a favorable defensive position for the
Union forces until reinforcements, on the
way to fiosecrans, should arrive.
The first reports received stated that
Gen. Roseau ns’army'had been cut to
pieces and was rapidly retreating, fol
lowed by U*e rebels, but later news states
that ail wiß yet be right—the Govern
ment having more cheering information
from that quarter. Preparations hare
been made for meeting every emergency
that is likely to occur in this field of ope
The rebels have a decided advantage
from, the fact that they can concentrate
their forces much more rapidly than the
Government; yet we do not despair ol
Gen. Bosecrans’ success iu finally defeat
ing the whole crew. While they arc
fighting Bosecrans, they may leave a hole
open some place else, which will let a
Union army into the dominions of Jefi'
ffiff’The muddy pool of politics has
spread itself .so widely that it is now
almost impossible to write or speak on
any of the- subjects connected with the
present rebellion, or the events transpi
ring in the political world, without being
charged with dabbling in its waters. We
have no aspirations, politically, nor do we
covet the name of politicians; ncverthe
less, «e pay some attention to these mat
ters, and are; not entirely ignorant of what
is going on. We read the papers of both
political parties, and And much in both
which we condemn and disbelieve. But
we are not Wow going into a criticism on
, either—omr purpose being simply to ask
a few questions, which shall be stated
plainly, and we desire pltqn answers.—
These questions have occurred to others
besides ourselves, and stagger those who
are disposed to act and vote with the
Democratic party and yet wish to throw
their influence on the side of the Union.
, Ist. Why is it that all the refugees
from tbe South, immediately upon their
arrival in the free States, espouse the
cause of the Administrationand all who
we in this State at this time, are either
writing or speaking in favor of the re
election of Andrew G. Curtin as Gov
2d. Why is it that none of these refu
gees espouse the Democratic cause, or take
the stump for Woodward?
Bd. Why is it that so many prominent
Democrats in this and other States have
left their pgity and are now found writing
and speaking in favor of the Administra
tion and the jin-election of Gov. Curtin?
We refer to such men as Gen. B. F. But
lervjf Mamachusetts; Gen. Logan, of
Gen-; Eoeecrans, of Ohio; Gov.
•iSuton, of : Tennessee; Matthews, of
Maryland ; AJI. Chase, of New York;

Whst Does it Mean ?
The following article, from the Rich
mond of tlte 7th inst., requires
considerable explanation at the hands of
the speakers and the writers of the party
whicU is to be benefited by a rebel . raid.
Why ;Would a rebel raid prove beneficial
to the; Democratic party t and why would
the succeseof the Democratic party prove
beneficial to the rebels * We ask these
questions in all candor. We give the
article that all may read it. Let every
Union man fairly understand the issue ere
he casts his vote. Read and reflect: —
The success of the Democratic party would be
no longer doubtful should General Lee once mom
«lvance on Meade. Parties in the United States
are so nearly balanced that the least advantage
thrown in favor of one will insure its success.
Should the Confederate army remain quiescent on
the banks of the Kapahannock, the boastful brag
gadocio of Yankee reports will be confirmed, and
Lincoln and Halleck will point in triumph to the
crippled condition of the Confederate army ns
confirmation of the great,victory. won jn Pennsyl
vania,' The Democrats, nnahla to gainsay such
evidence, will be constrained to enter the contest
for Spqakerahip shorn of the principal pa.t of their
strengfit— the disgraceful mismanagement and
conduce of the war. s
Gehi Lee must turn pqlitieign as well ns war
rior; we believe he will prove the most suc
cessful |politician the Confederacy eve* produced.
He may so move and direct his ami v as to produce
political results, which, in their baring opal this
war, w|U prove more effectual than the bloodiest
victories. Let him drive Meade into Washington
and be, will again rise the spirits of the Democrats,
confirm,the timid,.and give confidence to the wa
vering.; He will embolden the Pence party should
lie again cross the Potomac, for he will show the
people pf Pennsylvania how little security they
nave from Lincoln Tort the protection of their
homes. ,; It matters not Whether the advance Ik
made for the purpose of permanent occupation
or simply for a grand raid ; it will
’hat, in.the third yearof the war, thev aie sB far
from ihe subjugation of the Confederate Slates
that the.defence of Maryland and Pennsylvania
tas nor been secured.
A fall campaign into Pennsylvania, with the
bands pf our soldiers united, not for-indiscrimi
nate plunder—bnt a campaign for a systematic
tnd organized retaliation and punishment, would
arouse the popular mind to the uncertainty and
insecurity of Pennsylvania. This would react
upon the re|>resentalives in Congress, strengthen
.ng the-Democrats and mollifying even the hard
shell of fanaticism.
Ihe damage which the last campaign inflicted,
if augmented by another this fall, when presented
to the Lincoln Government wqnld unless paid,
greatly exasperate the people against an Adminis
tration which neither defends the State, nor reitn
bnrses its citizens for losses which its own imbe
cility has produced. And if these damages are
|taid the debt is increased, the taxes raised, and
he burdens imposed will accomplish the same
end. ,
Let the great and important fact bo constantly
kept in a’ tangible and threatening aspect before
he people of Pennsylvania, that notwithstanding
hare opened the Mississippi and are besieg
ing Charleston, and threatening East Tennessee,
mil Georgia, and Alabama, that, notwithstanding
ill this, Pennsylvania is hot safe from invasion.

Charleston informs us that Gem Gilmore
is repairing Fort Wagner and Battery

orn'of Fort Moultrie and that vicinity.—
A battery of heavy guns is also being
placed iu position for the purpose of shel
ling Charleston. Admiral Dahlgren has
been withdrawn from the command of the
-fleet, in Charleston harbor, and Admiral
Farrngut placed in charge. A difference
between Gen. Gilmore and Dahlgren

Letter from “August Sontag.”
Philadelphia. Sept. 21. 1863,
Membs. Editors :—Do you; drink “ Kisaingen
water" in Altoona ? Kvery body drinks it here—
that is every hotly that ,Ims a liven—instead of
champagne. My drink and meat to-day, how
ever. is “tea and toast," with a determination to
send “ right about" a headache that has persisted
in sticking “ closer than a brother" to me for the last
twelve hours, despite all my remonstrances against
•such a superfluous affection. Coffee is said to he
an infallible remedy, hut we have so many kinds of
coffee current here how, tliat it will to
make a selection. I confess to be a vety Mussul
man in my affection for the roasted berry, a cup
of its amber-bued and glorious infusion far trans
cending, in thy opinion, even the creamy overflow
of Heidsiek or the gorgeously colored body of “old
crusted port.” But if you really love coffee, what
do you think of the manifold and economic repre
sentatives, now so numerous in the grocery win
dows and “down i' the mouth" of the great public.
Have you lasted the “Eureka?” Have you uos
triled the “Celebrated East India?” Have yon
alarmed your palate with the tar famed Golden
Rule?" or have you—for philosophy might venture
on such a shuddering experiment, perchance—ever
disgusted your lietle' nature with a sip of “ rye”
coffee, “wheat,” or “malt”ditto, and soon? I'cr
adventure, you have, in the honest spirit of inquiry,
which is said to be the characteristic of this intel
ligent age, essayed one or all of these things,
and it so, you will admit that some of these coffees
are wondei fully good imitations of the dientical
thing, just ns some of the counterfeit fifty cent post
age-notes now amazingly embarrass the best of us to
sort them out, without a minute investigation,
from the genuine Government article. Economy
is the order of the day now, for who is “ making
his salt." not to mention his salary, except those
fortunate gentlemen to whom the war brings in
crease of business, and to whom the destruction of
armiesonlv means the supply, at exhorbitanl prices,
of so many more coats, shoes, &c., for the succes
sors of the sacrificed. Why even the law, with
its, has lost all its profitable characteristics. Our
court ealedars have run down to “ small potatoes.”
I could name a number of lawyers in thiscitv, who
used to do a flourishing business, who will <j<ion
have to pettifogg upon the “ no-cure-no-pav” prin
ciple, and offer to accept business without making
any charge for services, without successful, unless
there he a change in the politics of our country. —
Apropos, politics. We have some political excite
ment in this direction, but, as Sontag does not
want to be Governor, lie keeps cool, and don’t
care the value of a roast peanut altout politics or
politieans generally. As the election day ap
proaches the noise and confusion gradually in
creases, and soon we shall look for a monomania
to seize the whole community, and some of them
go “ mad as a march Imre.” If I could afford it,
1 should certainly'go up in a balloon, for the
nonce, just to avoid the utter desolation of lining
the only calm and philosophical mind amid the
general delirium. But we can't afford such a lux
ury. The times forbid it. If I prove particularly
sensible upon this subject—Heaven f n tend, how
ever, for I hate to he exeemric—pardon me, and
attribute it to my morality und the environing cir
cumstances. Contemplating the wtmle field with
an impartial eye, I must say that the opposing
forces a.e well matched, that both arc sanguine,
full of spirit and “eager for the fray." But I
really think Curtin will triumph in the end.—
However, that remains to be seen, aud we shall
not be left in saspense long. I
What a lime the Coal dealers have had here,
with the-puhlic, tiring to keep up the price of
coal. When our State was invaded the price of
coal rushed up from seven to ten dollars a ton,
while some of the dealers refused to sell for less
than twelve, pnd others talked of holding it on to get
fifteen or twenty. But down it has come with a
crush, and the public heart rejoiced, and the heart
of the coal-dealer waxed sad. It is a delightful
struggle Isnween the would-be-sellers and buyers,
the one to keep the price in stata quo, and the
other to reduce it again, and which party will whip
in the end remains to be seen. How man in af
fected, sometimes, by the aspect of his pocket-book I
When he is making money “Our Country” is the
cry, and down goes the greenbacks, or at least a
promise to that effect. When we lose money, we
I button tip our pockets with closed lips and hoarsely
whisper, “ not a cent for tribute 1” The coal melt
are only anthracite illustrations of the fact. From
.Maine to California it is the same; man is but man
everywhere. We had an unusual occurrence take
place a short time ago which has caused some sen
sation among the fair sex. A* verdant t ouug lady"
was captured by the police, who was disguised in
male habiliments and seeking an opportunity to go
to sea. ns a cabin boy, for her health. She had I
elo|ied from her country home, she said, because
she had a liver complaint which nothing but a
visit to old Neptune would cure, and dunning the 1
costume of the male sex, she fancied she soon I
could possess herself of the remedy. Alas! fori
her calculations. She bad no sooner arrived here (
titan she was made to feel her helplessness, and- ;
she quickly realised her situation and accosting the
first policeman she met told her store. He
conveyed her to head-quarters and her speedy res- '
toration to female habits and the femenine appear- :
ance was the result. We have one class of people !
in Philadelphia who command “the situation” in !
dealing with capital, and that is servants. Ser- j
vants, and particularly female servants, ask. what i
they please for their service and get, I am told,'
jnst about what they choose to ask. The hoop-skirt
factories advertise largely for female operatives
and pay such good prices, that they quite nse up
the great body of unemployed industrials, ns al
most any girl, however sl nptd. can work on a hoop
skirt—or at least wear one—if she can wash a
dish or peel a potato.: The demand tor feqiale
servants exceed the supply, and those who prefer
housework to fuctoty labor, entertain the highest
, notions of the extraordinary value of their euisin
arv exertions. The most unsophisticated genius
asks seven dollars per month, even if unable to
distinguish a flat-iron from a coal-scuttle, while
more ex|ierienced “ help” require ten and twelve
dollars per momhwith “coalitions.” Tiimj con
ditions are commonly a good bed, a good table,
one night out evev week, Itesidcs all of Snndar,
and the liberty of having their “consins'calltosee
them in the kitchen. There may be some slight
exaggerat ion in all this, as I obtained the informa
tion from a party who was pretty sore on the sub
ject, hut I suppose their must lie some truth in it.
We are indebted to the repirter of the SunAtg
Trimxaript fur the following hit at “codfish aris
tocracy." ‘‘There was a grei t udi at tlte Acad
emy of Music on Wednesday evening. Among
the dense throng were niiiiifiers who have sud
denly been financially elevated in consequence of
this “cruel war,** Codfish and shoddy aristocracy
swelled out In silks, satins. “ loves of bonnets,'”
&e„ &e. Among the crowd a young lady dropped
a .watch key, which she missed tqion nearing the
door. It was valued as a gift. While looking!
around for it a neatly dressed boy stepp xl op and
said, “madam here is your key I found it on the
floor.!' It was transferred to the gloved hand of
the lady, who was hanging on the arm of a gen
tleman, who immediately pulled our his port-mon
naie from which be selected a fifty-cent postage
currency to reward the boy for his honesty, when
the young lady immediately interposed, and said :
Oh. let me. reward him ! I have some small change,
and so saying she tendered the lad a Jive-cnt
note. The boy railed upon Mr. Bulkier. at the
Central Station, next day. to whom he delivered
the fivc-eont note, with the request that the detec
tive force should find out the whereabouts of the
lady and return her the note, and if not successful
in tracing het out, to put it on interest fin- the ben
efit of the institution organized for (lie subsistence
of decayed members of the codfish aristocracy.”—
We, also, attended this exhih tition, and encoun
tered—God forgive ns!—a speci-s of animal
which a zoologist would define a “ swell," where
upon ice took a few notes —not greenbacks—for j
the benefit of our friends generally, which can tie i
seen upon application at No i. Smith’s
Island. The erudite .Walker*affirms a thing to he
fashionable which is approved by cus’oni or made
; according to the ’• mode,” and ’one is fashionable
who has rank above the vulgar! Whether the
d-finition be wholly serious, or acknowledges a
tinge of sarcasm, it hits the case very fairly. The
patronizing term “approved by custom” for exam
ple. nothing could be more felicitous. To feel that
we are approved by those for whom wie cherish
profound respect, is no mean element of happiness.
And where one feels a peculiar regard for a class
j called “aristocratic,” he respects whatever custom
> they generally recognize, and feels, to be approved
of it, is n synonym of personal consequence, and
therefore’ self-respect, and “the mode”—what
words of awful majesty arc these to a “ swell,”
and therefore elegant, foreign, and therefore formi
■dnble Aristocratic, it appeals to the esthetic na*
ture,! it is refined and chaste—“ made according
| to the mode,” it is to 1*- mafic as the gods would
I direct- But to have rank above the “vulgar”—
this is the great thing. To he manifestly none of
the herd, to seem to liave descended straight from
some’ rich, “firat family.” on an air-line too lofty
to ever have been a merchant or a member of
Congress. Those who were at the “ Academy of
Music” on r lie night we refer to, must remember
the exceeding splendor and awful magnificence
net of the representation, hut of the andiedcp. It
was a seene/or every “swell" to treasure in his heart
of hearts One would have thought from the gen
eral eagerness to tic in a seat at a certain time,
was a matter of life and death. O. the spotless,
J unwriuklcd cloaks, the sujierb head-dresses, the
j snowy white Waistcoats and cravats, the glossv
and radiant beavers, all pressed and compact to
gether, cheek by jowl with the Sunday coat of the
respectable pleliean and the ill smelling garments
of the plain, hut honest tradesman and trades
; man’s wife. We particularly admired a large,
j red-faced, sumptuously attired, important looking
i man. with snub nose, who vented audible petulant
complaints in regard to’the culpableinadeqitateness
of the means of entrance to the interior—for the
left-hand door was shut—which neglect he vowed
to his body companion was ridiculous, and a dis
grace, in a tone that bespoke the stockholder—
; who is a modest individual that has a regular seat
( in the parquet, to the intease delight of the lessees
j and managers. Of course iris none of my “bitis,”
hut as Mrs. Toodles would say. it is certainly a
great convenience to have in the house. The res
olute, though slow moving crowd, swept me
through the passage-way into ihe corridor, where
1 paused lo lake' breath and examine inv ribs.—
To the enthusiast in the study of “ swells/’ a |«si
tion well down in the parquet is perhaps Ihe most
judicious, fir this alone will enable him to take in
i at one magnificent sweep the adorable “swelling"
| line of the dress circle—the haunts of tlie stockhol
[ der and general opulent citizen. It Is well to go
early, and lints confer on ones self ihe privilege of
witnessing the composed ami majestic entrances
ot these fellow lieings, who descend to their several
places, and adjust themselves with edifiying delib
erateness, and not the least conscious of observa
tion. Blanche, whose side face has been called
classic, takes one of the front seats and at once
begins a lively chat with itmde., who in three
quarter face responds with equal animation, which
h iugs her tine teeth, (probably artificial) imoplav
and imparts additional lustre to her eyes; while
behind them two superb “ swells.” with hair parted
—Charles Augustus style—in the middle, and who,
therefore, contemplate a full front presentation,
temporarily employ their tightly encased digits iii
adjusting their lorgnettes, now'and then (lending
over, wiih grace, to say something amusing, or di
rect the attention of the young ladies to some dis
tant quarter of the house, where they have descried
some other object of equal, or perhaps (if possible)
even greater interest than themselves. As soon
ns we were seated and were at leisure to look
around u.—no mean element in the Academy of
Music—l fumed to the interior of the [wrquet to
see a favorite “ swell” whom I so often observed
in that region, even when not another of his kid
ney was standing, there he stood, cool and promi
nent, in view of the whole immense bouse, with
his glass elevated toward the dress-circle, which
he attentively surveyed with such patience and as
siduity-and with sublime indifference to Ihe figure
lie may be presenting to his peers, that I have
nominated him bv acclamation' for the office of
chief “swell,” and now I will turn my attention
to the performance. So, yours truly,
