EVERY man who was a leader in the
Rebellion in the South, as President, Vice-
President, member of the Cabinet, speak

head of their armies, every one of them
was and is a Democrat.
PRICE, a delegate from New Jersey to
the Copperhead National Convention,
said of the Democracy of his State during
the war : " I say emphatically they would
go with the South from every wise, pru
dential, and patriotic reason."
TILE arrests by the Police in New York
ordinarily average about 200 daily.
During the session of the rebel Copper

GENERAL GRANT, with his family, is

He is not expected to return to Washing

ON July 4, 1863, while Grant was going
into Vicksburg, and Meade resting
on the glorious field of Gettysburg,

arms a failure, and denounced conscrip

GREAT RATIFICATION MEETING
SAUER KRAUT GORILLAS IN COUNCIL
THE " ONLY DEMOCRATIC CITY" IN A
BLAZE-ONE HUNDRED KU-KLUXERS
RALLY-" NANCY" BRINTON, BILLY
WILSON, " SOCKY" SMITH, &C., &C., &C.
—Dnums & FIZZLE l—Saturda, night
lust was the time appointed for the great
demonstration of Seymourites in Lancas
ter. Large posters were sent out in all
directions. The unterrifed were called
on to rally. The rub-a-dub of Killian's
famous drum corps was heard for hours
on our streets, and at last at eight o'clock
about a hundred "rag, tag and bob-tail"
assembled in the Square, inter-mixed
with a few Republicans. That delight
ful young Florida sprig, Nauman, called
the immense! assembly to order, and after
a little spread-eagle, called Y. C. Min
ton, familiarly known as "Nancy," to
the chair, who immediately responded ;
for nothing tickles him so much as to
preside at a meetin g . As his gorilla
hearers never read the papers, he pro
ceeded, in his well-known eloquent man
ner, to rehearse the proceedings at New
York. "Nancy" was a Republican until
" Cousin George" was nominated for
President in 1864. Perhaps his support
killed "Cousin George." Who knows!
Then a bounty-broker named Ewing,
a leech on the body politic, from Harris
burg, talked a speech. And such a
speech! We have heard some about this
fellow. Can anybody in Harrisburg give
us his pedigree? He is a blackguard of
the first water.
Our friend, Billy Wilson,
of Duke street, followed. As Billy had
spent the whole of Saturday afternoon in
walking his office floor, hands behind
him, cogitating, he did is "last best."
"Billy" used to be a rampant "Know-
Nothing," and is consequently in great
favor with the sauer-kraut gorilla leaders.
But he couldn't be elected District At
torney in 1857, and went back to his first
love. Billy has a much higher opinion
of himself than has anybody else. Pity
he isn't appreciated—
Of all the speculations the market holds forth,
That I know of, for lovers of pelf, •
Is to buy Billy Wilson for what, he is worth,
And sell at the price he sets on himself. "
Then came the hefty matter, in the
person of " Socky" Smith, of the
geneer—the wild-eat bush-lawyer. He
said something—he swore "By the Eter
nal" we will lick 'em I Whew He has
said this so many times since he came to
Lancaster, that people begin to believe
that he knoll's he is lying!
The meeting was a cold bath—no en
thusiasm—not a cheer went up, except
from "Foul Km."—the Engli h of which
is "rotten head"—who was the commit
tee on applause. Give us more sick !
THE Life of Schuyler Colfax, by Rev.
A. Y. Moore, South Bend, L,diana, is
vastly superior to ordinary campai4u bi
ographies, being well written, with a
competent personal knowledge of its sub
ject. It was begun some years ago, and
therefore has not been hurried up to meet
the demands of the time and situation.
With much good sense, Mr. Moore has
collected numerous striking passages
from Mr. Colfax's speeches and writings.
These show the character of his mind,
the wide range of his talents, the depth
of his patriotism. An excellent portrait,
engraved on steel from the latest photo
graph, is the suitable frontispiece of this
highly interesting volume. Published by
T. B. Peterson Sr, Brothers.
OUR CITY GOVERNMENT.—To avoid
imprisonment, the Copperhead members
of Councils met with the Republicans of
that body on Thursday evening last, and
proceeded to the election of city officers.
Of course, those heretofore put in nomi
nation by the Republicans were elected.
The 46 Cops" are terribly chagrined.
" What a fall was there, my countrymen."
THE CAMP MEETING.—On Tuesday
last the ground on which the National
Camp Meeting is to be held at Manheim
was dedicated by appropriate religious
exercises. Nearly five hundred tents
were already in position, and a large
number have since been added. The
crowd is immense. On Wednesday the
regular order of religious exercises began,
and will be continued till Friday, the 24th.
No efforts have been spared to make'
the stay of all visitors comfortable and
agreeable. The means of transportation,
to and from the depot at Manheim, thus
far have proved amplo. No one need
entertain any fears of riot finding accom
modations. The managerSdeScrve credit
for their efforts in this•respecty . Strangers
wishing first-class accomodaPoris, should
not fail to stop at the Witsktington house,
kept by our friend Abrahain heist.
