number of "copperheads,"
presume, were ree,ertity arresieflin
the sontiaem end centre portions
, ofkithe State and tried by Court
Martial. The charges against one
of them, named Miller, were as
follows :--
1. In that the said Miller declared that "Abe
.Lineoln was a fool and had no sense."
1. In that the said Miller wished that "light
'clog might strike the cabinet and knock them
into -- along with Horace Greely."
3. In that the said Miller la a sympathiser
with the South and bad declared that toe would
rather fight for Jeff Davis than Abe ilAnodin.
. .
4. In that the said Miller had "spoken dtsre
'Tactfully of the Administration."
On sudli :nonsensical trash this
man was flagged from family,'irn
prisatted!for weeks, put to ggreat
expense, and in the end sent home
with the "assmunce that ‘tihe grave
charges were not EmStained."—
Wonder, if he had said that Andy
Johnson was drunk at the inaugu
ration, whether that would have
been a good subject fora sth charge.

Mir The - Abolitionists sa That

'the:government, is known to have
been aratik:atlhe inauguration,—
glow many , ctlwrs of the 4Cgovern

Johnson being drunk, the question
arises, was the "government"
whole drunk, half drunk, quarter
drunk, or was it only tipsy. Judg
ing from the proceedings of the in
auguration, taken all together, we
should say that the "government"
was whole drunk.
air The following statement is
interesting when it is considered
that the 6th, Bth and 10th Dis
tricts are Democratic, while the 7th
and 9th are excessively "loyal,"
but not too much so as to prevent
them cheating the governmeut to
a considerable amount. The col
lections of Income Tax for the fis
cal year ending June 30th 1864,
for said districts were :
61h, Lehigh and Montgomery counties - $89,862 91

"Outs Charleston correspondence ihOWEI that

reek,. Yes, while free schools are
being established for the niggers
in the South, by the power of the
—n word,•thia Baum power is depriving
the white children of the north, of
that benefit. We already learn
that in several of the districts of
this county, reduced terms are to
be taught, for economy's sake, and
in consequence of the immenseem
pense attending the same power
that is establishing free :schools in
the South. The districts are be
ing involved over head and ears
in debt, and schools happen to be
the first and most convenient .ob-
jest to commence retrenchmeet
with. Those that come after us
will consider their forefathers as a
parcel of asses, in consequence of
the lack of wisdom and spirit they
are displaying at this time. While
the war is being kept up to free
and educate the slaves, the white
people are taking their paces 'in
bondage and their children in ig
norance. While the government
is educating negro children, the
people are beginning to find them
selves unable to educate their own.

te.. Horace Greely, Speaker
Colfax and family, passed over our
railroad to New York, last week,
in one of the gaudy private ears,

very inclement, and the train an
immense one, filled largely with
invalid soldiers on their waihtime.

air One of the correspondents
of the New York Tribune; who
was a prisoner in the South, and
escaped, says, through the Tribune,
that the reason there is not a gen
eral exchange of prisoners is en
tirely owing to Secretary Stanton,
who is opposed to exchange at all,
but submits to it partially to hood
wink. the people whenever there is
a draft. He places the death of
the thousands of soldiers of our
army at the doors.of the adminis
tration. He says that more of
our prisoners die from sickness
and otherwise than are exchanged,
just because of Stanton's double
dealing. This now is Republican
authority,--no "copperhead lies,"
and should be consiolered out of
the army and in it.

SIGNS TuATITAIW,gb.---We all re
member the story of the innkeeper
who became proud as 'he prospered
and taken down , his sign of the Ass,
put up it 'portrait ol*George IV. in its
place. his neighbor immediately
raised the east-dff edgy, and in this
sign he conquered. 'The first land

PHAROAH AND JEFF. DAVIS.
Mr. Cox made the following admi
rable point in the debate on the a•
mendment to the Gonstitutivn re.
specting slavery.
• If, then, as it is said by the gentle
man from Vermont [Mr. Morrill ; ]
slavery is dead, what is the object of
this amendment 7 That distinguish
ed gentleman told us the other day
that, like Pharoab and his hosts,
the South had rushed - with slavery
into the lied sea of War, and that sla
very was destroyed.
Well, if that be the case, if slavery
is dead, where the necessity for in
voking this extraordinary power of
amendment ? My friend from New
York [Mr. Odell,], who also spoke so
well in defence of his views, said that
although it was dead he wished to
give it, a constitutional burial. lam
not mach of a-biblical scholar, but I
believe that we havone.autlien,tic re
.cord of the fact that alter Phareah
and his hosts were destroyed in the
tied .sea the children of Israel, after
the destruction, met together upon
its shores in grand convocation and,
after listening to Aaron and the oth
er orators, -passed revolutions some
what ilkis:t.ntt, to ; wi t ;
Resolved, That neither. Pharoali
nor his hosts,
except twit punishment
for crime, whereof they shall have
been duly convicted, shall hereafter
exist within the jurisdietien ,of ithe
children of israel. ibaughtera
What would .the people have
thought of the children of Israel for
passing such a resolution after the de
cease of Phareah 7 My friend from
N. Y., /Mr. Odell,] belongs to the
new dispensation, and w.osld give the
deceased slatery a constitutional bu
rial. What would have been thought
of the children of Israel, after they
had fished out Pharoah's dead body,
if they bad proceeded solemnly to
give to it a constitutional burial ?
[Laughter.]
THE CAT AGE.
The palmy days for cats were in
the time of Edpt's power as a na
tion, some four hundred years B. C.
They were held as sacred as dogs or
crocodiles, and death was the penalty
for killing them. From their noc
tural habits and glossy fur, the Egyp
tians deemed them symbolical of the
moon, and a golden cat was worship
,ped, at Syne. nerodotus tells us
some marvels about them. "The
Tome,". -seems, in his time, had a
liking for making away with kittens
—a very fortunate bbing too, or the
land would have been overrun with
cats. Crowning wonder of all, when
afire breaks out, the sole care of the
,natives is ,to; keep the 'cats tram it; .to
do which 'they post themselves as
guards ardund the burning house,
and take no thought for pitying out
the flames. divine impulse, how
ever, says the chronicler, seizes the
cats; they dart under the men, or
lent) over them, and fling themselves
into the &lames; then great mourn
ing takes possession of the land. if
a eat was 'found dead in any one's
house, the inmates had to shave off
their eyebrows. The defunct animals
were carried into the temples, where
they were embalmed and solemnly
deposited in the city of Bubasiris.—
Specimens may be seen in the British
Museum. Very different is tbeir fate
at modern Rome. A recent traveler
tells us that they are there as 'highly
esteemed for culinary purposes as
puppy dogs in China. If you have a
roast hare for dinner, you had better
not make 100 many enquiries as to
what kind of "pussey" it was 'before
it came into the chief's hands.

THE OVERTHROW OF A GOVERNMENT
THE WORK OF INFERIOR MINDS.
The fanatical Abolitionists of the
North after years of persevering labor
have succeeded in su'lrverting the lib
erty of the white race in their mad
zeal for securing the freedom of the
black or interior race. - The cry of
"Liberty, Fraternity and Equality;"
in revolutionary. France, eventually
led to the •entire ovqrthrow of al9
v , o ernmentad restraint and the es
tablishment, of an anarchy where
blood-stained footsteps upon the fiis
torie page, the student starts back
from with horror. Fanaticism never
evokes the higher powers of the hu•
man mind. It is So narrow and con
tracted, in its mental vision, that
there is, in reality, nothing great or
lofty for the mental powers to 'oper
ate upon. 'Hence, it 'tam be found in
his tory, that tau ati cism destroys and
Weaken - a governments, never buiads
IT. Appealing to the passiOns, more
than the reason, it makes revolutions,
but never accomplishes, beneficent
reforms. Pintlar, in one of his po
eins, very felicitously says: ''lt is an
easy task for men of inferior abilities
and slender worth to shake acountry
from its foundations; but to place it
firmly again upon its basis Is -an en
terprise of no common difficulty, of
no instantaneous ace& mplis b
unless the Divinity vouchsafe his in
dulgent co operation to the rulers."
We have an illustration of the sa
gacity of obServation of the pagan .
poet in the men now in power in our
own time. For some wise purpose of
his own, God has permitted the gov.
era meat of this eeuntry to pass for a
time into the hands of fanatical ideal
ists, who have manifested the pro.
olivities which haveshown themselves
in the fanatics of all ages to destroy,
but not to reform. The Abolition
leadera have eletirly exhibited the
truth of the. saying of " Pindar, "that
it is an easy task for men of inferior
abilities and slender worth to shake
A country from its foundations." It
remains to be seen whether the fu
ture has in store, tbe development of
that immense ability which is requi
site 'to build up a nation from the
ruins fanaticism has created, and
whether Providence will smile upon
such an effort.

BULLS AND REAU.S.—The singular
epithets of "bears" and "bulls" were
first applied to speculators in stocks
on the London ,exchange about 1834.
When two parties contract, the one
to deliver and the other to take
stdekikon a s tature day at a specified
price, it is the interest of the deliver
ing party, in the intervening period,
to depress stocks, and of' the reeeiv•
log party te raise them. The for
mer is styled a "hear," in allusion to
the habit of that animal to pull things
down with his paws ; and the latter
a "bull," from the custom of that
beast to throw an object ,up with his
horns.
Oil has been discovered in North
beriangi And Columbia coon ties .of this
State, .and the excitement tin conse
quence is said to beAkimmense:"
COLD COMFORT FOR OFFICE SEEK'
ERs----A Washington correspondent
furnishes information that will dis
appoint the vast tribe of office-seek
ers who are waiting for a new deal
of the Federal pack. In a conversa
tion with an intimate personal friend,
the President said pretty• nearly
these words, a few days since : "I
have made up my mind to make very
few changes in the offices in my gift
for my second term. The fact is, I
think I will not removea single man,
except for good and sufficient cause.
It creates a great deal of dissatisfac
tion and grumbling to make changes.
To remove a man is very easy, but
when / go to fill his place, there are
twenty applicants, and of these I
anust.makezineteen enemies."
A DRAFT •IN A QUAKER. TOWNSHIP.

Brian, (Irishman,) Wm. Barrett,

IRON IN HE BLOOD•
IT is well known to the medical profession thal
IRON is the Vital Principle or Life Element of the
blood. This is derived chiefly from the food we eat;
but if the food is not properly digested, or if, from
any caner whatever, the necessary quantity of from la
not taken into the circulation, or becomes reduced, the
who system suffers. The bad blood will irritate the
heart, will clog np the lunge, will stupefy the brain,
will obstruct the liver, and will send its diamthe•pro•
ducing elements to all parts of the tystem, and every
one will suffer in whatever organs may be predlaposed
to diseaae.
The great value of
IRON AS A MEDICINE
