SgL,The howl going up in .Richmond
and through tho South at the President's

that the root of the rebellion Las been
struck with a blow that will crash it out,
As usual, the democratic Vallandigham
papers in the North chime in with the reb
els. Ihey have little to say against the
rebels employing negroes in war or inciting
Indians to murder our men, women and
children, but when tho life of the rebellion
is threatened by destroying it? most valua

negroes will assert their freedom and hurt
some of the rebels I Now who would care
it ati South Carolina was annihilated? No
loyal man. Who would care how soon the
negroes would .-hoot or hang Jef. Davis,
hi.> cabinet, Lis congress, and all belonging
to them : No loyal man. Who would
care to hear that John C. Breckinridge,
Beauregard, and the whole nest of vipers
whose hands are steeped in the blood of
our husbands, and sons, Lad perish

to show their loyalty, and then if they i'ail

The Pittsburg Gazette says that a "Dem

but the meeting was somewhat enlivened
by cheers for Jcf. Davis, which were heart

informed that the traitorous cheers were in
any wise rebuked.

j we hope the loyal men of Mifflin will give

! that his 11 democracy" is not of the kind
that meets their approbation.
The convention also nominated Mont
gomery Morrison for Coronor, but Gum
| wouldn't stand it, not being anxious to hold
i an inquest on such candidates.
In their greediness for small favors they
even nominated an Auditor —of the same
stripe with others on the ticket —for two
years. Any one referring to the election
returns of 1861 will see that Mr. Vauzant
had 18 majority in the county vote, and
was by the decision of the Supreme Court
throwing out the soldiers' vote, duly elect
ed. Of course all votes ca-t for C. K. Da
vis for auditor are worthless.
Patent Democratic Rotation in Office.
It used to be a favorite cry with the pat
entees that rotation in office was a cardinal
principle, so that all would stand a chance
for the spoils. Taking Judge Wilson,
their candidate far Prothonotnry for a sam
ple, it would be a curious calculation that
would show how long the present genera
tion of patent democrats would have to live
to got their share of office to be on an equal
ity with him, either in time or pay :
During Gov. Wolfe's term he was
appointed Prothonotary, which
office he held about two years,
worth, say $2,000
Subsequently lie was twice elected
to the Legislature, worth, say 1,000
President Judge, 13 years, at an
average of perhaps SIBOO a year, 32,400 j
22 office, with pay of $-35,400
And yet this party of rotation row asks
the people to elect him to an office the du
ties of which he will have to perform by

liaising False Issues.
The last Democrat contains a rather silly
card from the pen of J. Harrison lloss, late
member of Assembly, in which he endeav
ors to make it appear that somebody is per
secuting him un account of the tonnage
tax, and then invites taxpayers, in anxious
bench style, to come and vote for him, as
now is the time. With the quarrel be
tween himself and his brother democrat,
neither the public nor ourselves have any
thing to do—as they may fight out their
difficulty—hut with the attempt to raise a
false issue at the election, wc have. Mr.
lloss holds out the idea that he is the man
to have the tonnage tax restored —that he
can bring down the mammoth corporation
on its knees and make tie Grand Mogul
tremble in his boats—in short, that he will
kick up "flugeiis" generally, while Tom
Williams, old Daddy Hopkins and a num
ber of others who could see much deeper
into a millstone last winter than a certain
J. Harrison lloss, will have to stand aside
and give way to "Buncombe!" Now, as
we stated a few weeks ago, it is not likely
that the tonnage tax question will be seri
ously agitated next winter, but if it comes
up at all, Holmes Maclay will be quite as
likely to vote for its restoration a? J. 11.
In the meantime there are some other
questions which will come up, of interest
to the people as well as their pockets. For
instance the self-styled democratic conven
tion at llarrisburg in July last passed a
resolution condemning the confiscation bill
and asking that rebels may be tried by
rebel juries, which, with Bright resolu
tions and a U. S. Senator of the Hughes
school, form prominent topics for a repre
sentative. How Mr. lloss would vote on
such questions his Urijht vote last winter

The editor of the Selinsgrove Times
finds a great deal of fault with Judge Woods
for telling him what the fiue and punishment

give the traitor the extent of the law.
From the North American of Oct. 3d.
F. W. Hughes, it seems in 1861 drew
up a resolution to precipitate Pennsylvania
into the rebellion. It was so monstrous a
proposition that, when its author read it to
various members of the Democratic State
Convention, to which it was to be presen
ted, they were aghast at his treason, and in
the resolution committee of that convention
one man, at least, threatened to throw him
and his resolution out of the wiadow if he
dared to offer it. In fact, the indignation
was then so great that Hughes deemed it
prudent to withhold it. But, nevertheless,
the matter got bruited abroad, and, being
now well proven against him, he unblush
ingly avows it over his own signature.
This man is not only the Chairman of
the Democratic State Central Committee,
but he is the most prominent candidate for
the Democratic nomination to the U. S.
Senate, in case his party should oarry the
majority of the Legislature. This is his
platform; ''The seoession of Pennsylvania
from the Union, and her league with the
rebel States." It is his platform as we now
know from his distinct and emphatic avowal.
His mouth-pieces take up his declaration
and approve each sentence in detail, and
accept the whole as the platform of the
Democratic party in Philadelphia.
Any vote, therefore, cast at this election
for a Democratic candidate for the Legisla
ture, however it may be intended, will
practically be a vote for the rebellion of
Pennsylvania against the national govern
ment—a vote for the secession of the State
from the Union, and for the acceptance of
the yoke of the rebel oligarchy of the cot

Most Atrocious Murder.
Our city was alarmed late on Friday
evening by the announcement that a girl
between five and six years o' age, named
Mary Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. Eman
uel German, was missing and had been
seen in company with a man wearing a
soldier cap, and dressed like a discharged
soldier. The child was seen with this man
at about five o'clock, on Friday evening,
going up Second street, hence up Locust to
Third, and up Third across the Capital
ground. Here ail trace was lost of them
and many rumors were circulated regarding
the absence ofthe child* Yesterday fore
noon, however, two colored boys, who were
crossing General Forster's meadow directly
in front of the cemetery, discovered right
at the edge, in a regular swamp, the re
mains of little Mary. These colured boys
went at once to give the alarm, and word
was immediately sent to Mr. German, in
forming him of the discovery, and request
ing that he should proceed to the spot, for
the purpose of identifying the remains.
Mr. German arrived immediately after
his notification, and our pen fails us to des
cribe the scene. There was his innocent
little girl, the hope and happiness of its
parents, murdered in the most brutal man
ner, and that without the least apparent mo
tive for the fiendish deed. A coroner'sju
ry was at once empanneled by Alderman
Kline. Dr. Roberts was present, who up
on examination, discovered that the child
had been shot directly through the throat,
the ball entering on the right side of the
neck, passing directly through the jugular
vein and carrying away the left portion of
the neck almost completely with it. The
child was lying on its face, with a bruise
about the size of a Spanish dollar directly
on its forehead, which might have baen
received in the fall, and the right arm
showed the imprints of a band, as if it had
been held firmly with one hand whilst with
the other the fatal shot was given, when the
child was standing directly before the brute
who committed the murder. The clothing
of the child was somewhat tern and disar
ranged, but after a close examination of
the body, 110 signs of an attempt at rape
could be discovered. A reward of 51,500
has been offered for his apprehension.
The battle of Williamsburg. —Gen.
Hooker, in his official report of the battle of
Williamsburg, says: "History will not bo
believed, when it is told that the noble offi
cers and men of my division were permit
ted to carry on this unequal struggle from
moruing until night unaided, in the pres
ence of more than 30,000 of their comrades
with arms in their hands. Nevertheless,
it is true."
It is stated by a Western paper that
Governor Morton, of Indiana, has ordered
that forty per cent, of the Quakers of the
State be assessed for enrollment, and those
drafted arc to go or pay two hundred dol
Official despatches from Gen. Grant con
firm the defeat of the rebels under Van
Dorn and Price by our forces under Gen.
Rosecrans at Corinth. The defeat was not
only decided, and accompanied by great
slaughter of the enemy, but followed by a
successful pursuit that promises still more
important results. From the brief accounts
furnished by the telegraph it appears that
the combined force of the rebels, supposed
to be forty thousand strong, attacked our
troops at Corinth on Friday morning. The
attack was made with great impetuosity,
and the rebels at one time reached the
centre of the town, but were driven back
by a bayonet charge. After a tight of sev
eral hours the rebels retreated and an ac
tive pursuit was immediately commenced.
Gen. Ord on Saturday overtook the enemy
on the south side of the Hatchie river and
drove them across, capturing two batteries
ar.d two huudred prisoners. A large num
ber of prisoners were left in our hands in
the first day's fight. The position of the
rebel army is represented to be in the forks
of the Hatchie river, nearly surrounded by
our forces. Gen. Grant says that he can
not see bow the rebels are to escape with
out losing everything but their small arms.
In the battle of Friday, we had Gen. Haek
leuian killed and Geu. Oglesby seriously
