Border State Politica.
The States of Delaware, Maryland,
West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee,
and Missouri, are exempted from the
emancipation proclamation of Presi
dent Lincoln. So far as laws and
proclamations are concerned, these
States retain their slaves as of old.
To get the support of these six States
has been the specialty of tho so•called
Democratic politicians of the North.
Their platform and their policy • has
especially been to conciliate these Bor
der States.
How have they succeeded ? Look
first to Missouri, the only contest has
been between the Radicals who with
slavery instantly and forever abolished
and the conservatives who only ask a
system of gradualism like that adop.
ted by Pennsylvania.
The returns of the late elections
show the Radicals to be dominant
over the combined vote of the conser
vatives and all stripes of sympathi
zers with secession. In fact Missou
ri today, is more Radical than Penn
The same is practically true of "My
Maryland," which the bayonets of the
Union troops alone, kept from joining
secession. The Union emancipation
candidate for Comptroller, has some
-25,000 majority—and four of the five
candidates for Congress; are uncondi
tional Union. The contest was fought
on her own soil, and Maryland is true
to the stars and stripes. In little Del
aware, Charles 'Brown, 61 tinder box
notoriety, leads the secession Democ
racy in the contest for Congress.
But Mr. Brown, broken down in
Pennsylvania, is not going to be any
more lucky in Delaware. We have
no doubt that the Union emancipation
candidate will triumph by a decided
majority. In West Virginia they on
ly appear to have had one set of can
did:l_os-01_1bn SIMCSSfiI I_ (landldfdeß _
for State and national offices, are Un
conditional Union.
In Tennessee no elections have been
or aro likely to be held-for some time;
but Gov. Johnson and most of the loy
al men of that State, appear to be
openly on the side of freedom and
against slavery. The only apparent
exception is in Kentucky. The anion
party swept the State by a very large
vote in last August. Since that time
the successful candidates have been
exhibiting about as much sympathy
with human slavery as passes current
among Northern Copperheads. In
fact if Copperheadism bad not gotten
so dreadful an overthrow at the polls,
this was to have been the platform
upon which a part of Kentucky Uni
onists, Jeff Davis traitors, and North
ern Copperheads were all to have
stood in the Presidential's campaign
of 1864.
Another wing of Unionism in Ken
tucky is in favor of the eradication of
slavery from the State, and of course,
goes in to sustain President Lincoln
without any ifs or buts. We have no
doubt that by the time of another an
nual election, that the Union party
will come to a platform common to
the other border States. Slavery in
these States, though not touched by
the President's proclamation, is prac
tically ended. They themselves will
soon find it out. Unionism in Ken
tucky will soon come to mean the
Same thing it does all over the coun
try. No political party has ever made
so egregrious a blunder, as did the lea
ders of the Northern Copperheads.
They risked everything to conciliate
the governing classes in the Border
States. But those States themselves
have repudiated all such proffered
friendship. The Northern Democra
cy now find themselves doomed, by
the very States for whose conciliation
the whole platform was erected.—
Pittsburg Commercial.
What the Election in Maryland De
cidea.—Tho Baltimore American says
the election in that State, just held,
has decided that Maryland hereafter
is to be a free State. The people have
decided in favor of a Convention to
blot out Slavery. The vote for Gen
eral Goldsborough was the test on the
question of speedy emancipation. Bal
timore has given a vote nearly unani
mous on the question. The imposi
tion of a test oath on every voter
whose loyalty was suspected, dmibt
less kept many from voting.
Speech of the Governor-elect. The Re
sult a Union, not a party Triumph.
Mr. Brough delivered an address at
Painsvillo, Ohio, Oct 16. Ile enun
ciates sound doctrine—doctrine that no
one, whatever may be his party bias,
can say it is not strictly true and in
accordance with the dictates of every
sentiment of honest patriotism. Here
is what he says:
"This is not a triumph of any man.
No man could have won it and no
man in the State ever merited such an
! ovation. Neither is it a triumph of any
' party, as we have heretofore classified
and understood them. Party lines, to
a great extent, have been obliterated
in this contest. Masses of both parties
have joined to swell the great triumph,
and the line of division has been between
those who were friends of the Government
and the country on the one side, and the
opponents of these on the other. And
why should not men of all parties thus
have united? Nineteen years ago I
stood in this same grove and followed
Gov. Corwin in party discussion.—
What was our ground of contest ? I
contended that the principles of my
party were best calculated to perpetu
ate the Government, and promote the
prosperity of our common country.—
The Governor contended that the prin
ciples of his party were adapted to the
same end. The purpose was the same.
We were like two parties going to mill,
each contending that his was the
smoothest and best, road. By and by
there comes in the tread of this rebel
lion. What is more natural than that
we should say to each other:—Here is
a new element that seeks to overthrow
and destroy this Government that we
are both trying to preserve—that is
threatening to tear down our mill
Suppose wo lay aside our warfare, and
join our forces to subjugate this com
mon enemy? Why, my brother Dem
ocrat. should we have faltered in such
a crisis ? The place of the old demo
crat had always been on the side of
the country in its hour of peril, and
this was no time to shrink from that
duty. We should instinctively have
sprung, as a body, into the broach.
"When the war broke out the Re•
publicans held the political power in
the State. They invited us to bury
party divisions, and joirti?;in a great
party to sustain the government.—
They offered to divide with us the
posts of duty and responsibility.—
They gave us our present egeellont Go
vernor, and a glorious thing :t was for
the State -they did so.— They met us
in the spirit of liberality, and have ac
ted in good faith. But the question
was not one of office or place, it was
one of principle, and the Democrats
who failed to strike hands upon it nec
essarily admitted that there was more
of patriotism and love of country
among his old political opponents than
in the ranks of his own party. This
I, for one was not willing to do. We
have simply put aside our party contests
and joined in a common cause to save our
common country. By this union we
have achieved the great victory over
which we rejoice to-day.
"But this is not your victory only;
it is the victory of the whole nation,
for in Ohio we have fought the bath)
of the whole Union. If Ohio had been
taken from the loyal and placed among
the disloyal States—if her great civil
.13titvory 11.4.1 hoop leaven -in
the hands of a rebel sympathizer with
traitors—your cause was lost. With
New-York controlled by Seymour, Penn
sylvania in the hands of Woodward, and
Ohio given over to the candidate now so
badly defeated, there would have been
nothing left of us but the triumph of the
rebellion, and the dismemberment of the

Thank God ! that 'cloud has passed

"Had we been a united people at
the North, this rebellion would to-day
have been at an end. Many honest
and well meaning men have been de
luded into opposition to the moans ne
cessary to crush it. For those, there
should bo a trial and opportunity for
repentance. But for the loaders who
have sinned against light and know
ledge, and sought to prostrate the in
terests of the nation for mere partisan
purposes, there can be but little pray
er for forgiveness. Their purpose has
been unholy, and their hands are red
with the blood of men, sacrificed through
their conduct, on many a battle field.—
Lot them remain among us as visible
monuments of treason : as marks "for

their opposition to the Government
has forced upon it the very measures
they condemned. I have found it a
very fair test that when a man was cav

had treason in his heart and was only
seeking a justification for it.

The Riots at Mauch Chunk.
(Spectal correspondence of The Prose.]
MAIICIL Cuusx, Nov. 7, 1863
Several accounts appeared within
the last few days in Philadelphia and
New York papers of the "riots" in this
region, and the murder of Mr. G. K.
Smith, ono of our best and most vain
able citizens. The accounts given are,
as far as they go, substantially correct.
The murders committed, however, are
not "riots," but the work of assassins,
extensively organized throughout the
coal region, and the leading Copper
heads are the chief instigators.
The murderers are all Irish, organ
ized under the name of " Buckshots "
for the avowed purpose of resisting
the draft. They number probably
several thousand in the mines of Bea
ver Meadow, Colerain, Icansville, Ha
zleton, Audenried. Yorktown, French
town, Spring Mountain, and Mount
Pleasant, They are alt armed, either
with shot-guns, rifles, muskets, or re
volvers. The most notorious Copper
heads of our place counselled them to
arm themselves "to defend their liber
ties," and "to resist the tyranny of the
Lincoln despotism." The beasts duped
by these demagogues declare their de
termination to drive but of the mines
every one who is not of their own
stripe, and a number of Welshmen,
Englishmen, Protestant Irish, Ameri
cans, and Germans, have been waylaid
and murdered by them during the last
two or three months. About two
months ago ono of these "Buckshots "
was arrested near Beaver Meadow,
and lodged in our jail on a charge of
assault and battery with intent to kill.
On the following night over ono hun
dred armed Buckshots marched into
town, well armed, arriving here about
one o'clock in the morning, surrounded
the jail, and rescued the prisoner. No
effort was made by the civil authori
ties to arrest the offenders, although
the Grand Jury, last month, presented
the names of a number of persons who
participated in the outrage. The Dis
trict Attorney, being of the most ma
lignant stamp of Copperheads, refused,
and continues to refuge, any steps cal
culated to bring these villains to jus
tice. The High Sheriff of' the county,
it is believed, would prefer doing his
duty, but he being in the Copperhead
boat, cannot do so. lie has made no
effort to raise a posse commitatus for
the arrest of these or any other out
laws in our county. Even one of the
associate judges of our court, and lead
ing officer of ono of the most prosper
ous and respectable local corporations,
it ts said, tiNeonntenalicod any effort
to arrest""BuckshOlsriimply because
they (the Democracy) "need their
votes and must not offend them."
Thus encouraged by our local au
thorities, these outlaws frequently de
clared their determination to not only
kill every officer who would undertake
to enforce the draft, but also to put
out of the way every one suspected of
snmpathy with the government. They
openly declare now their determina
tion to secure entire control of all the
mines, and to stop the shipment of
coal, and thus deprive the navy of this
indispensable article.
The deputy provost marshal of the
county recently received a company
of the Invalid Corps, to protect him
and his assistants in serving notices
on the drafted men of the infected dis
trict. Beaver Meadow was selected
served without serious difficulty. In
each of the mining villages the well
disposed citizens earnestly appealed to
the marshal _for permanent military
protection, but the force under him
was barely strong enough to move
from mine to mine and protect the of
ficers whilst discharging their duties.
The last notices were served on Wed
nesday, and the military marched back
to Beaver lkicadow.
On tho same day, Mr. G. K. Smith,
Ono of the proprietors of the Yorktown
mines, with his wife, visited Mauch
Chunk, and remained over night at
the Mansion House. On Thursday
afternoon, ho went home, in a two
horse carriage, and arrived there early
in the evening, and being somewhat
indisposed, retired at 9 o'clock, about
which time somebody knocked at the
door, which was opened by Mrs. Smith,
and an individual in soldier's uniform
entered, and said ho had a letter for
Mr. Smith from Manch Chunk, on hn
portant business. Mrs. Smith propos.
ed to hand it to him, but the villain in
soldier's clothes insisted upon giving
it to him personally, saying that was
his positive order. Mrs. Smith then
retired to Mr. Smith's apartment and
informed him of the very important
letter for him, He soon entered the
room, received what purported to be
a letter, and stopped up to the light
to open and read it, when the villain
stepped up behind him and shot him
through the head, killing him instant
ly. As soon as the shot was fired, the
door opened and a gang of Buckshot
assassins rushed in, and Mr. Ulrich,
clerk in Mr. Smith's store, who was
also in the house, came in the room by
way of another door. He succeeded
in killing ono Buckshot, but received a
ball through the thigh himself. Mrs.
Smith received three bullet holes thro'
her dress, but succeeded in making
her escape without injury. The dead
Irishman was carried away by his fel
low-ruffians, and thus far none of the
gang have been identified.
The alleged reason for this most
cowardly and brutish murder is, that
Mr. Smith was suspected of having
furnished the deputy provost marshal
a map of the town, indicating the hou
ses in which drafted men resided.
Whether ho did or did not furnish
such a map, is probably known only
to the marshal and his assistants.—
The mere suspicion, however, was en
ough to induce these cowardly Buck
shots to commit this foul and damning
Other prominent men of this coal re
gion are threatened, and some of them
have already left their homes and pro
perty to seek personal safety ; and un
less something is done very soon to
protect the citizens of the region, the
shipment of coal must cease.
In my judgment, there is but one
way to treat these fiends. They must
be exterminated, hung, or shot. No one
belonging to this "Buckshot" organi
zation should have a bit more right to
live, for a single moment, in the pres
ence of a decent man, than a mad dog
or a rattlesnake; and if the Govern
ment will not give us plenty of men to
exterminate these outlaws, the citizens
must and will do the work effectually
by means of a Vigilance Committee.—
If we must have civil war here, it may
as well be a war of extermination.
An Irish Soldier's Letter.
The following stirring letter is from
a young Irish volunteer in a New
York regiment to a friend in this city.
Ho has a glorious record in this war,
as the reader will see:
"NEAR WARRENTON, September, 1863.
* * * "I know well that you will
do your part for the poor wounded
soldiers. Oh, what sights I have seen
these last two years I I have seen the
soldiers of the Union drop by my side,
and their last dying words were:—
'Fight on boys, and yours will be the vic
tory;' and again I have seen the head
knocked off many a bravo man who
never knew what hit him. I have
soon some of the best and truest Union
men in the country lying on the bat

give them a drink of water to cool
their fainting hearts; and many a time
we have run over the dead bodies of
our men.
"Oh, what sights! And lam hap

one man that was wounded no matter

Let it be the prayer of all the North
that God may be our general and com

they do that there need be no fear for

God on our side, it matters not who is
against us, and our enemies are many
at the present time. England and
France, I know, are both our enemies
and would side with the rebels if they
were not afraid. Let me come to a
close by saying to you that I am hap

be in the next battle I shall give the
rebels a shot for every one in your
family, and these five shots may kill
five rebels, but it will pay if they only
kill one rebel."
The President.
The following is the tribute of a
gallant and faithful soldier to the
President, whom• he has had the ut
most opportunities of knowing, and
whom the Copperhead press unite in
reviling: "There aro not a few who
have quailed before the magnitude of
the task. Of those,. thank Heaven,
the President is not one, Ile whom
the burden has most bent, has never
faltered in the heart or purpose. Ile
is sustained, as the just, by the groat
mass of the nation, by the potential
force of the press, and by the armies
and fleets of the Union. Grappling
with administrative questions more
difficult and delicate than ever before
tried the sagacity and courage of our
statesmen, he has so borne himself
that every loyal heart acknowledges
the candor, ability, and tact, which
signalize the character of our Fiist
Magistrate. (Applause.) That

Vallandigham, as the following inci
dent shows:
The night before the election, a pa
ivied Ohio soldier, worn out by near
ly three years bard service in the ar
mies of the Union, and having enlist
ed, as many did, an ardent Democrat,
arrived at the door •of his fatber•'s
house. The old gentleman, under the
talismanic power of a venerated party
name, had for nearly half a century
steadily voted the Democratic ticket,
and had religiously taught his son to
do the same. Ile stood in the door to
welcome the returning soldier, and ex
tended his hands with all a father's
pride, to greet his noble boy. To his
horror, the son drew back, and with
quiet dignity, the scalding tears mean
while streaming down his bronzed
cheeks, he said : "Father, God knows
I love and honor yob as my father,
but I love my country better, and
have higher duties than I now owe
oven to you. I bear that you aro go
ing to vote for 'Vallandigham, and I
can never take your hand or enter
your house if you do that." "Never
mind, John ; come in. That's merely
my political opinion. Never mind;
come in; we all want to see and thank
God for your safe return.". But all
entreaty was unavailing.
"I have," said the soldier, "for near
ly three years fought the traitor Jeff.
Davis and his rebel crew. lam here
to fight a meaner and more venomous
traitor, Vallandigham, at the ballot
box; and, when that duty is perform
ed, I mean to return at once, and fight
on till treason is crushed out every
where, and the glorious old flag again
floats over a free and united people."
sad hearts they parted for the
night. Early in the morning, the aged
father was at the door of his neighbor's
hmise, and calling to his son, said :
"Come home, John, your mother wants
to see you. I will vote any way you
want me to, for I'm inclined to believe,
after all, that Val is a traitor." The
joy of that household, father and son,
in standing up squarely for the Union
cannot be told. Language is too poor
to describe it.
VEItY sad, but sadly true, is the fol.
lowing fearful incident, which occur

far distant from Wheeling, Virginia:

The funeral cortege reached the grave
the solemn burial services were read;
and the old sexton commenced the
work of covering the remains, but no
sooner had the first lump of Any fidlen

Huns, who stood regarding the impres
sive services without a sign of emo
tion, suddenly raised himself to his
full height, and, with clenched hands
and a look of defiance that seemed
fearful, he exclaimed, in a shrill voice,
arresting instantly the attention of
all, "Old man, stop! I'll kill you if
you cover my brother up in that dark
hole!" and, with a wild_maniao eercatu
thitti-sounda piercingly mournful, he
fell motionless to the earth. The
groat deep of many hearts was broken
up, and tears fell like rain drops.

To whom all communications on the ear;
jeot of Education should be addressed.
It is the custom in many of oar
schools for the teacher to pursue a plan
which requires a great length of time
to teach the young scholar the Alpha
bet. The plan is something like this:
the teacher will call the class and name
over the letters time and again, from'
beginning to ond, and from end to be.
ginning; requiring the class to name
each letter after him. After thus na
ming the letters a number of times, the
teacher thinks the class should` ha 3
become somewhat acquainted with
those mystical characters; then point
ing to some letter, he demands, , in a ,
tone of authority, the name of thki'l4l
for pointed out. In a moixtbrik the
little creatures, dreading the evil' that'
will surely follow a failure to Poirciettf
the required duty, commence et the'
beginning and down they go, right a'
wrong., till they come to the one poin
ted out; which they make an effort to
call by name. They may name it, or
they may not; but no matter—the
teacher will not allow them to find ib
in this way; although it is the only
way he has, ever taught them. Then
comes the miledietfonsi-And-the-poor
little fellows must go to theii seats
with a heavy heart; after having fol
lowed tho precise plan upon which
they wore instructed, and there they
must sit and mourn their sad fate, not
knowing when they may be called up.
on again.
Again they aro called and again the
lesson has boon recited in the same
manner, and the pupils with deeper
sobs and heavier, hearts, go back to
enjoy another short respite from agony
of mind. The teacher has never stop.
pod to think thitt perhaps there might
be sonic plan on record by which he
might so associate those characters,—
he has made so many vain attempts
to fitsten on the mind of the-child with
objects, so that the task
might become intoresti" Instruc
tive at the same time. — No! on the
teacher goes, feeling in his heart of
hearts that there can be no other way
to reach the desired point, until the
school has been transformed . into a
modern arena—the pupils acting the
part of gladiators, each day being corn,
polled to run the gauntlet to gratify
the evil nature iu the matt who gov
erns them.
Now, we have seen this very plan
carried out in schools of our county.—
No longer ago than last winter, we
stopped in a school, and found just
such a state of things existing; and
were it not that we are peaceably in
clined, we would have - ielt - fike-atand- --
ing between the unprotected child and
the monster in human- shilpe, who
would deal a blow on the head of the
child for a failure to perform some un.
natural task. Parents, would it not
be well to drop into ,the school occa
sionally and see how your children
fare ? It may be, you have a teacher
there wha is sowing in the hearts - of
your children the seeds of all that is
bad. For, when the little child is not
satisfied with his lot, he will intuitive.
ly try every means to change it. Thns
he determines to play truant, and in'
order to do this he must, necessarily,
be guilty of falsehood, and with false
hood comes theft, and a host of crimes
of like character. So we find the
teacher who has entirely failed to teach
the alphabet, not failing to imparb to ,
the heart of the child the seeds of criMe3
and wretchedness. Teachers who un. •
derstand human nature as well as to •
teach, wage a war of extermination
against the above class of teachers.—
If you do, you will he following the
dictates of Philanthropy, and future
generations will bless your name, that •
you have assisted in driving the V.' .
rants from the land.
