and in the same breath- endeavors

rigmarole of stuff against the very
life-essence of that udear old Govern-

",friends are making all the assaults in
their power upon that same "dear old

Half a dozen propositions were of
fered last week in Congress by the
friends of thelieuriq to change fun

Several propositions were
made last week in Congress pro
posing amendments to the Constitn
tion abolishing slavery. The nigger
is. to be the platform of the Aboli
tionists in the coming Presidenti'al
campaign. The aUnion" - cry an

abandorted 4 for. that -- a "Abolition."
Itel. : , The stables at the President's
House,Mrashington, were destroyed
by fire Lon Wednesday night of last
Week. Several horses were burnt.
The fire is supposed to have been the
work -of an incendiary, or through
:carelessness. Congress .has already

The Courier knows that the above

The Polificul friends of the editor of
the Courier contested the election on
the grounds. of the unconstitutional.;
ity of the soldiers voting away 'from
their residences. The case was car
ried to the Supreme Court and there
decided in accordance to the Con stitu
tion and the laws, and in favor of the
friends of the Courier, whose candi
date, Mr.' Thompson, ousted Mr. Ew
ing from the tattoo on that ground af
ter the latter had lied it over a year.
Mr. Thompson, the Abolitionist; is
now sheriff 'of Philadelphia, on the
grounds of - that very decision. .It is
true Mr. Woodward was of the
judges, but would : any law-abiding
titizen have him decide adverse to
the law .and the Constitution ? If
the Courier would we knerv.r that the
BOrdieiT would not, dearly -as they
might love to vote. They are -figkzt
. ling for law, order, and the Constitu
.-tiOn, and they would have neither
'Violated even if It would be in their
favor. WO",defy contradiction on the
• correctness ..of this statement. Gen.
McClellan was in favor of Judge
'W,OodWard , because he
. was in favor
'of Carrying oz-tihOwar for the Con
titutiOn and the„Union, and not for:
-` freeing the negyoos, and because he

tin doubt .g,reatly 'surprised, after

;that they were altogether mistaken
-in. their supposition's, :and that they
"*ere only fighting for the abolition
of slavery, or to qaote Mr. Forney's

Sttr"Genoral Butler sent an 'expe
dition,-last week, up the PeiyinrSilla
towttrti4 Itieh mond, for the purptiso'Of
reliefting Oil , ' prisoners in that , t3ity.
At''tlhc sanw. time an, advancewas
made by the Army of the•VotOmac
to draw the attention of thet'enetty
so that Butler's expeditionlinight suc
ceed. The plan was detected by the
rebels and frustrated. The expedi
tion returned, and the army went
back to its old camping ground. With
a loss of upwards of 500 killed,
wounded and prisoners. This raid
upon Richmond by Butler, which he
did not accompany personally, seems
to have been rather a wild-goose
chase r and the noise about it is com
posed .of more:fuss than feathers, save
that several hundr4d valuable lives
were sacrificed hi itfor-no,purpose.
The Courier is eon - ling , out ev
ery week more openly against, sand
more abusive of, Gen. McClellan. It
is supposed that McClellan is oppo'sed
to the pet nigger schemes of the Abo
litionists, and a friend to the white
soldiers, which is the reason of the
milk in the cocoa-nut. We advise all
those opposed to and abusive of Mc-
Clellan to go within half-a-dozen miles
of Richmond,- in wliiclrease they will
-have a:Tight to abuse him and those
. *ho did. Until then they shoUld
hold their peace. - The 93d was there
and can speak on that . point.

of Armstrong county, is - the IDetno

St. Clair will be elected, as the dis
trict is strongly abolition.
A proposition is before Con
gress, and will be put through by the
abolitionists, to build a new Presiden
tial Mansion, and abandon the pres
ent "White House." Build Old Abe
a palace, and darn the expense.
LlEr' Thadileas Stevens was one of
the prime movers that loade . d - a debt
of 840,000,000 of dollars upon the
State of Pennsylvania daring the
short term of power of the Anti-Ma
sons in Pennsyll'ania. After an ab
sence of nearly 30 years from power
he makes his appearance in the Na

short term of the Abolitionists in
power there, he will be the chief
means of riding the country also into

i Senator Sumner, one of the
leaders of the Wool 'Pedters in Con

granting equal privileges to white
and colored citizens, and RNMB passed
by a vote of 30 to 10.
Wy- The Netbs, of Philadel
phia., an out-and , .ont Abdlition paper,
says that "candor,ias well -as just
appreciation of its duties .as public
journalists; requires that it .Should
state that 4n its own :political

We think so' too. Let Democrats
prepare ; the light of better days is
dawning !
na.. The editor of the Courier seefils
grieved because the "Copperheads"
did not pay more attention to the lit
tle niggers he and his friends were,
exhibiting in the Court HouSe afew
weeks ago. "Copperheads" don't
want to make voters of them., hence
it matteis Terry &tie to them wliefh
er they are "kinsmen •of Stonewall
Jackson" or any other rebel. The
"Cops" leave all that to these who
have a "fellow feeling!" for such corn
party and things and all that.
Abe Lincoln's first emancipa

John Jordan, an employee of the :Erie
Mining Company, at their works in
Deerpark, Orange county, N. Y.; fell
'headforemost down a shaft one hnn
elp6d and twelve feet deep: There
was seven feet of water in the shaft,
into which he - plunged, and strange
to relate., he escaped with no worse
injuries than,a few slight bruises and
a good ducking. When the bucket
was let down he seized hold of it and
was drawn out, and was able to re
sump work' on Monday morning.
Kr The guerrillas in the Hardy
county valley of Virginia made, their
appearance on the Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad, a few miles west of'
Harper's Ferry, on. Thursday night.
They captured a railroad train and
took over thirty. thousand dollars and
some jewelry from the passengerS as
a ransom, They made no prisoners,
and without doing any injury safely
&camped with their booty. Several
members of the Maryland Legislature
were among the passengers.

though dissuaded by the -dentist she
urgently requested td'have the opera

in, who made an' ekamination and
pronounced her a suitable subject to
have chloroform adMinistered, "and
proceeded to administer it. While
under a partial infltienee Dr. G. pro- .
corded to extract her teeth. Ater
the extraction of the eighth tooth she
fell fbrward, became uneonseious, and
her pulse and heart.ceaSed to beat.
All proper measures 3 were -taken to
restore her, and artificial respiration'
was kept up for an hoar and a half,
when she expired.

by fire, while he:und his •wife -were
absent at church some distance-from
home. Three , children were in the
house when the conflagration occur
red. Whena•iieiglybor arrived, the
oldest :one-was standing -do wn stairs
and was ' rescued. The second was
also gotten clown stairs, but died al
most immediately thereafter, and the
youngest could not be rescued, the
flames and smoke preventing further
access to the room up stairs in which
the fire originated qui it was entirely
consumed in the fire. Not '.sa, trace
of it could be discovered after the fire
was over. It was left lying in the
crib.,.; It is supposed that the explo
sion of a coal oil lamp caused the
conflagration. This terrible catas
trophe should be another warning tO
parents not to leave small children
alone in the house.
lam,. The Administration has ille
gally arrested -thousands of Demo
crats,•and plunged them into bastiles,
t- we - are not aware -that they have
proved a single charge against one
of them. It is, however proved that
the friends of Lincoln have-not only .
been -robbing the treasury all the
time, but also engaged blockade run
ners, and doing all manner of things
contraband of war, a.nd although ar
rests are taking place almost hourly,
and yet, strange to tell, we seldom
hear of a trial and still more seldom
of conviction and punishment.
