Lycoming counties. While our victory, in
the main, is one in which we have every
reason for rejoicing, our Democratic breth-
ren bore their good fortune without any
particular enthusiasm. How very different
from that riotous and disorderly conduct
manifested last year by the Republicans !—
Democrats never have been imitators of Mob
Law and Violence, like the Republican prod-
igals. .
Teamsters Wanted.
The Quarter Master's Department adver=
tised yesterday for five hundred teamsters
—the pay is twenty five dollars per month
and rations. The men must have thorough
knowledge of horsea, color or age not taken
into consideration.— Phila. Inquirer.
We do not like to differ with the Admin:
istration in anything pertaining to the war,
and have passed by many flagrant errors it
has committed since its advent to power,
without a comment : but upon reading the
above article in the Philadelphia Inguirer,
it struck us that a little comment would not
be out of place, and that we would run the
risk of having another Grand Jury put on
our trail, in begging leave to differ with this

One year ago, the Democratic party in
this’county was fdefeated, by the combined
efforts of the Abolition and Republican par-
ties. We have long been disposed to look
upon these terms as identical —fanaticism
run wild. Nothing servedlto stay the tide
that threatened to overwhelm us. Demo-
crats who stood up in the midst of the ad-
verse circumstances, which surrounded us,
and warned the people of the danger to be
appftcignded from the triumph of sectional-
ism, were reviled and contemned by the very
people who have been so much exercised of
late for the welfare of the Union. Had these
persons then honored and revered the stars
and stripes, had they been regarding them
as a rich legacy, transmitted to them asa
priceless heritance, by the early founders
of this government, we should be rejoicing,
to-day, in the choicest blessings of peace
and prosperity.
We wish not to be odious in discriminat-
ng, but cannot dissipate the reflections
which are crowded upon us. as we take a
glance at the history of the past few
years, to behold the waving of a flag within
the peaceful precincts of this village, bear-
ing the impress of bat sixteen of our glori
ous national emblems upon it. We ask our
fellow citizens, with an honest and patriotic
fervor, if there were not deep and meaning
signification in the unfolding of that flag ?
The causes which to the overthrow of
the Democratic party well understood in
this county. The result of the recent elec-
tion fully justifies the declaration ‘that the
people did not understand the hidden designs
of Republicanism. They did not antici pate
the fearful consequences that would follow
the success of that party. They see them
Centre county is once mere redeemed, and
her citizens may rejoice in the triumph of
the Demogratic party. The election returns,
which may be found m another column, in-
dicate an old fashioned Democratic victory.
It is a rebake to the vile slanders of the
Centre Democrat. Tt is a rebuke to Aboli-
tionism and its kindred allies. Ttis arebuze,
pointed and full of meaning, to the man
who would exclude preaching from the Court
House, which had been built by the people’s
money, and assumes to himself the arrogant
prerogative of doing the thinking for the
people. [tis a rebuke to the prejudices of
partisan leaders, who would proscribe others
for opinion sake, and a glorious vindication
of the people in favor of the Democratic
party. This result has been a lesson worthy
of remembrance to those who have been so
contemptably mean as to bring about the
criminal prosecution of the editors of this
paper, for sympathy with the rebles, when
those very prosecutions were instigated from
partizz. malice, and for partizan ends.—
Thro: times three cheers for this gloricus
viadication of the people:
Encroachments upon the freedom of the
press, for partizan purposes, and by partizan
Juries, will have their reward. The Repub-
lican “no party men” may weep in the bit-
terness of their own disappointment, at this
manifestation of public opinion ; but their
sighs and their tears must only bring down

have merited, Centre county is redeamed —

color. We have plenty of white men in the
Nor:h. who are actually in need of employ-
ment, and would be glad to accept the por-
tion of “tcamster.” Bat it appears “that
color as not to be taken nto consideration.”
That is, white labor is to be degraded to a
level with colored labor, and white men to
be made the associates of negroes. We have
no objection, as far as we are concerned, to
any person who desires to favor such an as-
sociation doing so. They have our full con-
sent, but as tar as we are concerned, if there
ourselves, we would prefer a little lighter
color, and less strongly perfumed mess
mates. :
In condemning the policy of accepting
Sambo in our army as a teamster, we do it
upon the ground that it is placing the Afri.
can race upon an equality with the white
man, or rather degrading the white labor to
the level of the negro. The Almighty has
created the African an inferior race of hu-
man beings, and any attempt of human
agency to elevate that race at one grand
jump, to the elevation of the intelligent Cau-
casian, must fall far short of its object. Tt
is further unjust to bring black labor thus
unceremoniously into competition with
white labor. White labor is now daily seek-
ing employment and cannot be supplied,
yet this Administration, which, before its
election, professed to be the poor man’s
friend now brings inta aampatition with hic
labor, that of the negro. Let us protect
white men first, and then if there be any
thing left, give it to the negro.
ata A Qe
Army Blankets and Socks.
While our fellow citizens have responded
mi a most Patriotic manner to the call of our
Government for men to fight, there remains
a duty, equally imperative, for those who
stay at home to perform. The Quarter-
master’s Department is deficient in Dlankets
and socks, and although every loom and
needle in the land seems to be employed, it
appears that the supply of these articles is
still incomplete, and the Department is com-
pelied to call upon private enterprises to as-
sist in supplying the demand. The follow-
ing address has been issued by the Ladies
Association of this county, inviting the
cooperation of every one posessing the facili-
ties for the manufacture of these articles.—
We hope there will be a response commens
serate to the demand and that every one
will exert himself and herself so that a com~
plete supply of these indispensible articles
of a soldiers wardrobe, may be speedily se.
\ cured. :
We are desired, by Gen. R. 0. Hale, the
Harrisburg, to notice the fact that the Gen-
errl Government have advanced the price of
Socks to 27 cents per pair, and Blankets to
$5,50 per pair. Robert Kendall having
signifiied his willingness to manufacture
blankets, a sample has been forwarded to
him by express with the assurance that the
Government will take, at $5,50 per pair, all
the blankets he makes coming up to the
sample. This seems to be a good price.—
Let all our Centre county manufacturers go
to work and thus bring money into the
county. We understand that Harvey Mann
has full force now engaged in the manufac-
ture or army axes. This is right. Let the
wool grower bring in his wool. He will no
doubt secure cash for it, Our soldiers must
have socks and biankets, and they must
have them before the cold weather comes on.

We have no doubt that W. W. Brown will
give his consen: to the exchange as he feels

Foreign Sympathy.
Our readers have all read in their youth,
the celebrated fable of the Lark and her
Young, who had made their nest in a wheat
field. As long as the owner relied on neigh-
bors or friends or relatives to reap the grain,
the lark felt safe, but so soon as fe told his
boys that they would rise at daybreak the
next morning and cut the crop themselves,
the lark mide arrangements for mov ng.
‘We have been altogether too much con-
cerned about foreign sympathy, and we are
heginning to learn the lesson—everything is
in the Bible and /Esop’s Fables—‘put not
your trust in princes.” ‘Against the insid-
ious wiles of foreign influence,” says that
which is next to the Bible, Washington’s
Farewell Address, (“I conjure you to be-
lieve me, fellow citizens) the jealousy of a
free people ought to be constantly awake.”
We have let down our watch, since these
words of Washington were uttered. So clear
was our course to us, 80 full of kindness tow-
ard all mankind were our own feelings, that
we could not believe that the right, the
truth, liberty, government itself would all
be as nothing to the old aristocracies and
despotisms of Europe in presence of their
self interest. Their travelers, their litera«
ture, their socicty had laughed at our jeal-
ousy of Europe, our simple attachment to
republican institutions, and our inherited
feeling as to the corruption and selfishness
of foreign courts. We had come at last al.
most to feel that these opinions in which we
were reared were mere prejudices, and that
Western Euorpe would judge of us in ac-
[cordance with the truth and righteousness
of the case : that if we deserved sympathy,
we should have it, and that in a great war
in which every right principle is on one side,
ard every wrong one on the other, we should
at least be cheered by warm words of en-
couragement from all civilized nations.
That it is far otherwise is now but too
apparent. The words of England have

for this, America is the fitting ally. It does
not fear our strength, for that strength
weakens not Russia, but its enemies.

this fight single banded, and to allow no in-
