at once jcdo their former comrades. and
crush this party of treachery and crime.
I have noticed lately that persons from
the North are buying lands in various
parts of this State, with the intention of
settling thereon. Let none be deceived
by coming this way, for this is no place
for civilized people. One acre of land in
Lancaster county, in a Union and liberty
loving community, is worth more than a
thousand acres here with such traitors
and cut-throats as neighbors.
There are a number of Lancaster boys
in our company, and all are getting- along

THE Mandieder Unifm tells a good
story. In the northern part of Merri
mack county, a crowd of the unterritied
were sitting on a piazza the other day,
when an old traveler, raged, dirty, rusty,
unshaved and unshorn, and evidently
half-seas over, strolled up the piazza and
stared vacantly at the crowd, which be
gan to ply him with questions. Filially,
a man said to him, - You're a Seymour
man, ain't you, old fellow:" Straight
ening up„the old man answered : "From
my present appearance you would prob
ably judge I was a Democrat, but I ain't.
I learned my politics before I took to
drink." This traveler was not Frank
CHANZMAN Wallace, of the Democrat
ic Committee, has just issued another
address to the people of Pennsylvania,"
in which much of the old clap trap about
the negro is revamped. lie endorses in
glowing terms the Democratic platform,
and eulogizes its candidate for the Presi
dency,lioratio Seymour, but significantly
omits mention of Frank P. Blair. The
Blair tail to the Democratic kite is too
heavy to admit of its ascension, the tas
sel of the General being displeasing to
the peace Democracy. Wallace does
not say anything about the coffee-colored

In future we presume he will adhere to
the rule usually observed by the Demo
cratic politicians, and beg landlords to
let him have " the demnition" total with
out any terms.
NINETY-NINE soldiers out of every
one hundred will, in addition to their na
tural repugnance to Democracy, excited
by the course of that party toward them
in the .‘var, feel that the abuse hurled
against General Grant by Democratic
presses and speakers, while pretending
to a decent respect for all soldiers, is re
ally a direct insult to themselves which
they will resent in solid columns at the
polls in November.
THE New York Express says : " A
party of Southern delegates to the Con
vention, in company with detectives,
`did' the slums of the city Monday night.
They saw enough of the mysteries and
miseries of tke metropolis to satisfy their
curiosity, until the meeting of another
convention, at least.' They saw where
the Democratic majorities come from.
THE Albany Journal says : " The mode
of Gov. Seymour's nomination for the
Presidency, after having pledged himself
not to be a candidate, reminds us of the
story of O'Alulligan and his wife : 'lt's a
bad cowld ye have. A drap of the cray
ther ud do no harrum.' Och, hone,'
said Biddy, I've taken the I)lidge, but
yu can mix a drink, Teddy, and force me
to swally it.'
MEN who owe their existence to-day,
to the fact that this government has
been too mild, too lenient, too concilia
tory for its own 'good, and who if they
would acknowledge the true sentiments
of their treasonable hearts, would con
fess that they deserve to die the death of
traitors, are indeed fit representatives of
this patent Democratic party.
IN the hope of securing the votes of
colored citizens, the Democrats of Wash
ington County, Mississippi, nominated a
negro by the name of William T. Com
bash for the State Senate. He was a de
serter from company " K," 23d U. S.
Infantry, and therefore just mean enough
to be labeled a " Copperhead Nigger."
He wasn't elected, however.
ONE of the highly important telegraphic
items of the Associated Press news, pub
lished in the city dailies the other day,
was the following dated New Bedford,
Mass., July 22 : " The vestry of Grace
Church, in this city, have resolved to
abandon the system of renting the pews,
to make them virtually free, and to rely
upon voluntary contributions for the sup
port of the ministry."
WILL not Miles O'Reily apply his val
uable poetical and musical genius to set
ting the war speech of the rebel Toombs,
of Georgia, to music ? The first stanza
might read thus :
4, Hark, from the Toombs a doleful sound,
Come Rebs attend the cry,
Ye Copperheads come view the ground
Where you already lie."
WILLIAMS, the "nigger" delegate from
Tennessee to the Democratic Conven
tion, indignantly denies that he slept
with one of the Copperhevl delegates
from Pennsylvania whilst iir New York.

TILE Philadelphia Press says the Cop

a candidate for President who was in

THE platform of the Democratic party
was drawn up b 3• a platform committee,
comprising, among others, the rebel !-ren
era's Wade Hampton, Preston, and
Barksdale, and the rebel lecislator Bab
cock, and Langton, a rebel editor.
These are the awn who lix the principles,
of the party which asks Union soldiers
for their votes.
LET it be borne in mind that it was
Vallandigham, the chief of the Northern
secessionists, who turned the tide in the
Democratic Convention for Seymour for
President ; and that Wade Hampton, the
most violent of South Carolina traitors,
dictated the nomination of Blair for
PrumAnY ELECTION.—The following

DURING our sojourn at Harrisburg
last i#inter, and on several occasions
since, it has been our good 'fortune to
"put-up" at the State Capital Hotel,
kept by W. I. Thompson. We can truth
fully recommend it as one of the best
kept hotels within our knowledge, every
provision being made for the comfort
and convenience of its guests. In the
absence of the proprietor at his Springs,
near Carlisle, it is "run" by Mr. J. D.
Baker, an accommodating gentleman,
who, from .his long experience in the
business, certainly knows how to keep a
hotel. The traveling public can have
their wants properly attended to by call
