THE COPPERHEADS AND LORD LYONS.
The British Minister to this county, Lord
Lyons, in bis dispatch to Earl Russell of the
17th of November last, recently published by
ihe English government, exposes tbe treason
able purposes and plans of the leading demo
crats of Mew-York city. Wo are surprised
that pub..Oiiy should Lave been giver, to this
letter. Had Earl Russell rt fleeted, he would
have suppressed it from the volume of Diplo
matic Correspondence. He would have per
sieved that it would injure his allies here, and
bring upon the democratic party the suspi
cions and odium of our loyal people.
The English Government is by far the most
unfriendly to us of the government of Europe.
It is iu her ports, that piratical c.afi ;ik<. ike ]
Alabama rod Florida uta fiU-hl out eo prey
upon our commerce:
The governing classes of England entertain
towords tho growing power of this Republic,
the most intense jealousy and Latred. They j
seize with a viuity every fact that threatens :'s
strength, or gives hopes of its dismemberment
Whether onr armies meet with disaster in the I
field, or the supporters of the war ere defeated
in on election ; either event is hailed with joy
by tbe aristocracy of Great Britain, as ev-j
idence of our weakness, and L cf the dissec3'o r, s
and delicious of one people. Encouragement
Is given alike to the rebels and their allies, —
the Copperheads. XL III ports of England are
harbors of refuge and safety to any piratical
craft that carries the Sag of the Confederacy;
and in the paries of her embassadors are en
tertained the chiefs cf the democracy, where
intrigues against the Fuioa are hatched and '
But we must return to Lord Lyons, and tc j
the disclosures made to him of ibe disloyal pur- i
pose of the leading democrats of New York, i
His Lordship arrived in New York from Eng j
land, on tho bin oi November, and writes that
he foaa- the conrcrvatives in high fcatLer
over the fall elections, especially the election
of SEYUOUR governor of t at State. " They
Loped," writes his Lordship, "'That the T'res
jdent would accent tho election." r. n dclerr -
Inatior of th* wiil of Ike people against the
war, and would seek iu terminate it, and riot
press it to extremity; that be endeavor
to effect a reconciliation with the South, and
renounce the idea of subjugating the rebels."
Preeiovs vidians, these New York Democrats!
They had couritib the votes of the people
with loud professions of loyalty— claiming to
be for the most vigorous prosecution of the
war, nod assailing the Administration for its |
waDt of energy end vigor. No sooner is the ■
election ever, than they assure the English em
bassador, auci through him the English Gov
ernment, that t) _ir victory was achieved in
the interest of peace and compromise with the
rebels. They confess to Lord Lyons that they
went to the people with a lie iu their mouths,
s.ad that it is necessary to keep up the decep
tion until tney get tuo Executive government
in their hands. Wc* quote again from his
" At tho bottom I thought I preoeived a desire to pot
an P!:,i to llip war. c:\.i :>! th e ri-k of h.sintj tiie South
ern States altogether ; but it was plain that it was not
dtemed prud -nt to avow this ticsire. Indeed, some hiiil.s
of it (hopped before the elections, were so ill received
that a strong ,1. i.iration in the contra . sense wa.-> denn
ed neces-fv j,y the democrat' '"niters. At the present
TO. mei reiore, the ci." sot the conservative party
c ". loudly lor a more vigorous prosecution ot the war,
rv reproach the government wi'.h sk ekness as well as
with the want ot success in its military measures."
Truly, is not this a keantifnl dis; of lhe
hypocrisy and falsehood cf tire Copperhead
democtacy? IQ their intense hostility to the
war, ibcy are wiiiiug to sec the Union dissolv
cd —willing ihat the flag of the Republic sho'd
trait iu the dust, in tho presence of the slave
boldei'd rebellion, " bnt it is not deemci prn
dert to avow this," The pai r'.;.. ...;.sses
mast bo deceived. Loyalty is uv-r od when
treachery is ixteuded. On the stump the
copperhead leaders ucclaimcd for a more vig
orous prosecnPon of the war ; in secret, they
plot and intrgns with enr enemies at home
and abroad, how best they can bring disaster
on onr armies, and dishonor on the countrv.
We have commented on a part only, of the
hypocrisy end disloyally, developed in this
communication of the British Embassador to
bis government at homo. Y T e will review
the subject in our next, and call attention to
the maiu object cf the democratic chiefs, in
their interviews with Lord Lvoxs,
ISF" OUR article last week, exposing the
plot to divide the Republicans of this County,
and transfer one portion over to tho control
of the Democratic leaders, has caused consid
erable fluttering amoDgst thos9 who eoncoctcd
the schena.', aud were craftily engaged iu car
rying it out. We have the best reasons, also,
for kcowiug that since tbe address of the bol
ters VJS published, making apparent the
treachery cf the leaders of tbe people's party,
many of .those hoietoL.e acting in that or
gauizat:::' have had tbeireyes opened to their
trie I :cry cttempted to be practiced, and de
cline to ->e placed nnder tie control of tbe
As wo have often said, vre Ly T i<vc tho most
of those who hove cor. itenanecd toe People's
movemert, have done so from conscientious
(though we believe, mistaken), motives Thrj
have not had *he slightest intention of making
warfa-e npoo Republican principles, no.- of
rendering aid and comfort to the Copperheads.
3T VM not with foeHnge of the highest gratifi-
CBtion that they found themselves acting with
the Democrats last fall, and the ill-conceajed
exultation of the latter over the supposed re
verse to the Republicans, we kDow disgusted
many a voter of the People's ticket. They
kuew but too well, that when the Democracy
had ccct6ion to rejoice, that Republican prin
ciples mast be in jeopardy, and they were
very naturally sensitive at exultations which
| grew out of Latred one! opposition to the prin
ciples they had advocated, and the success of
which was still their greatest desire.
Now, it is not only proposed to contribute
to the strengthening of the Democracy, but
also to give them the absolute control of the
People's organization, and allow them to make
the nominations for that party, as we Lave al
ready shown. Every intelligent voter in the
People's party knows that the leaders of the j
Democracy have but one object in, viz : the i
overthow of Republican principles, to be
achieved bj the dowuf&li of the Republican
organization. This is the sole, controlling,
absorbing purpose and determination of that
party. To effect this, they are slccplessly vig
ilant, and c casing!v laboring, taking advan
tage of every opportunity which presents itself'
They Lave no choice between the Peoples' and
Republican organization, except as it furthers i
this great object. They would as soon to j
day, strike hands with the Republicans, as
wiin their present allies, the boilers, if it wo'd
ensure the success of their party, arm the over
throw of the principles they ere so inraical
to. These assertions we do not believe, will
be controverted oy any one.
Ana they have no choice between the
two organizations—we do not believe thai
they have any choice between men except from
tiie same motives we have alluded to above.— ;
The leaders are ready to support the man who
will do them the most good. And the history
of Ik. Demociatic party of this county, shows
that they have always been rallied at the com
mand cf the leaders to the support of the can
didate whose success was most desirable to ;
them. Mow, is there any reason to suppose j
that this will be changed when they vote at |
the primary meeting for candidates for the
Peopl"'s party? Wiil not the same tactics be
employed they are so famous for ? The leaders j
will determine the candidates for nomination j
most suitable for their purposes, and passing i
tbe word around, the rank and Gle will quiet
ly go to the polls aud cast their ballots. The ;
simoc-prcre people's men, will fiad,when the re- |
su.t is announced that their Democratic friends
have voted en masse for candidates aud that
they arc beautifully sold.
If this result is not seen this fall, it is be
cause the Democratic leaders are so certain of;
the'** game that they can afford to wait anolh- j
er year. Bu„ the People's party have walked
;cto the trap set for them —and are at the i
mercy, and under the control of the Democrats. j
Already we hear the murmuring of discontent '
amongst the Democratic masses. They are
clamoring fcr a chance for the offices. Seme
of them are insisting that a portion of the i
People's ticket tins fall should be taken from
tiie Democracy. This slight rebellion, will
however, be qaelied, by the leaders, because
such a movement this fall, is premature. Cut
that the Democrats expect soon to furnish the
candidates as weil as the votes, is not contra
dieted, and is in 1 act, openly avoiced by them.
MP. EDITOR : —Tu my last, I promised to
furnish you with a few extracts from the
speech of Mr. HOPKINS, of Washington couu
ty, which I pronounced false and treasonable.
I give the render his owifwords :
" Yes,every ...tide that enters into t! e consumption
of a family, has advanced within the past two years, from
lijty ap to Jive hundred per cent.''
*' Soldiers in the array who receive did T gay ? who are
prcmisid thirteen dollars pr month : but which we> .1 •
r.ot get o>r from lour eight months after it is due llieiiil
I Hundreds and thousands f Hie wives and children of

j Ureail, or rr.fOcicnt clching to protect th*m from .pit

j ty. if it be but a cow, is taxed j j v -s, (vtniho cow of the
j soldier's widow is taxed l'~
Mr, Editor, as a patriot and a lover of my
' country, I pronounce all such speeches and as
j sertions a tissue of treason able falsehoods.—
, The 1 a din- articles of household consumption
, has not; increased in price in the last two years.
! Pork. two years ago was twenty dollars a bar
rel, it is now fourteen. Flour has varied but
: little in that time. Creud and meat, the two
leading articles in household consumption are
not higher than they were two years ago ;
I much less "from fifty to fie hundred, per cent.
j advance ." 'lhe man who ut'ers such falsehoods
i aud those who beli-ve ! in, ought to be seut

j Our army in the Held is be f fcr led, clothed
; and paid, than any army in the world. Their
| wives, children and widows are better cared
j lor than those of any other country. That
i " they are without bread half their time" is a
false slander on our country. If the soldier
j in the field believed Mr. llopkiDs' statement
| would he not desert if possible? If the speech
I was believed in the country, would any man
I volunteer to defend our Government ? Surely
1 not. Here, then, is the treason of this speech,
I plain to the understanding of every sensible
The party wbo depend on deception and lies
to sustain them, may applaud such men as Mr.
Hopkins ; but why any one prof ssing loyal
ty should hold him np, and couple our member
elect to Congress with him, as men to be de
pend?d on :o sustain the interests of this Slate,
I cannot see. I would warn the loyal people
of this county to b n Tare of bad associations
We ought, at this time, to have but one par
ty, and that, the party of our country and our
government ; but unfortunately we have anoth
er party, and for far different purposes. Be
tween those parties loyal meD, I thiuk, cannot
hesitate io making a choice.
ygji- We have no dispent'on to forbid the
banus of nuiou between the leaders of the
Peoples' party and the Democracy, published
in the addre®3 of the former. Oa the contra
rv we look upcu the connexion as quito appro
priate and proper, aud shall sec Bo consum
mation with pleasure. Tho anion is so nutur
al, and so much, in cousonance with the feel
i ittgs of the parties that it would be cruel to
! interfere aud attempt to prevent it.
We are sorry, however, to see the time put
off for so long a period. There is no reason
why the intimate and public relations of the
/ parties should not commence at once. If they
! can consistently meet at the polls of the pri
-1 unary meetings, why not in the Convention in
1 May ? If the partnership is to be cordial, and
! the rights and privileges mutual, whv should
| not the Dcmccacy be allowed to appear and
! have a voice in that Convention. Why not
; bring " our Democratic brethren" at once be

* GEO. STEVENS.
Chairman Democratic Standing Committee.
Towanda, April 10, 1563.
We had supposed that the call for the Peo
ple's Convention, embraced-®**/?" the faithful. —
But it 6eeins that the Democratic organization
is to be kept up. How is this ? Is there a
screw loose.somewhere.or is it a mere dodge to
blind the eyes of unsuspecting Republicans?
As the matter now Mauds there are to
County Conventions at May Court. Our 15 era
ocralic friends, notwithstanding the induce
ments and blandishments offf< d by i't.o bolt
ers, arc determined to send delegates to the
Democratic State Convention. N< rrp pro
bes' that this is not IU aecoroanee with the
plan of fraternity and concord put forth bv
tie People's party, but the t.vo should meet
iu Couvcntiou in harmony and send delegates
to the Union State Convention. Or is the
partnership only for special, and not for gen
eral purposes, to be acknowledged and to take
cff'Ct at the discretion of the leaders.
Seriously : the democratic party was never
more proscriptive and intolerant than now.—
The machinery of party was nver employed
more effectually than at the present. There
is no intention on the part of the Democratic
leaders to abate one jot or little of party for
the sake of the Country, nor is there any dis
position amoi g the masses but to blindly fol
low the lead of the bold, bad men who con
trol the organization and mould its policy.—
There is sleepless activity in the Democratic
party. Doubts, surmises, " open and mul'g
nant lie"," are constantly employed to break
down Republican principles and embarrass*
and undermine the National Administration.
These open anil covert attacks, at times, stop
but little short of treason. While the R-pub
lican party of the Nation has been demoraliz
ed, and almost ruined by its liberality and
charity towards it opponents, it has met in re
turn with nothing t-ut ingratitude, denuncia
tion and contumely. It is time this forbear
ance ceased. We have lost ground as a party,
and hindered the success of our principles by
covering with the mantle of chari'y, Opinions
a:-.J acts which s'-ouiJ l.ty been rewarded
with the halter.
Republicans may learn a lesson from the
occurrences of the past two yeass. It is not
too late to remedy the evil. But it can only
be dome by elevating the standard ol Repub
licanism —by blazoning our principles upon
our banners, —and nailing them to the mast.—
We have t if f', the policy of denying our prty,
and hiding our principle®, and failed. Tin
Democracy has only grown bolder, by our see
ming c.twaniice. It is time now that every re
publi -an should revive within himself the old
Hame of freedom, and gird on the armor iu
which he enee fiat tied.
While we have tolerated the cry of " no par
ty," the Democracy have strengthened till the
0..l po-ts of their organization, until they be
come almost impregnable. They huve taken
advantage of our tolerance, to recover from
their defeat, and have so far succeeded, as to
become arrogant. Their illy concealed treas
on lately has met with popular reproof, and
for a while they will be mere cautious, but
eventually WOOD, SEYMOUR and VAI.I.ANDIG
HAM will erect the platform upon v. hich they
will all stand.
Will Il'pnblicans lend themselves to the
1 -M.cfit of the Democratic party ? That is
the question to he solved in this Co^Aj.—

principles, or shall we ai l thr>, --h,

Mn. EDITOR :—The editor of the Argus is
now quite alive to t e interest of the Stale in
the public works. If I his display of zeal is
siocere, I can only say that he is to be pitied
for his bad judgment, for surely he ought to
have sounded the alarm soouer. The act of
which he complains was consummated four or
five years ago, and the editor of the Argus
then refused the use of his columns for the dis.
mission fearing that it might disturb party
When the discussion might have Uet-o of some

bold in doing what he would not do, or even
permit to be done foar years ago He can
perhaps explain this glaring inconsistency To
cje U rtppears according to the Argus when a
party is to be kept together, the state works
must not be examined ; but when a party is
to be broken up, or broken down, or a new
one to he formed, then the public works is a
fair subject of investigation. Iu other words,
a good hobby.

THE LATEST WAR NEWS.
Affairs begin to look better along the Nan-
s r tnond and Black water. For several days
there have been almost constant skirmishes
with the enemy, but not in heavy force. The
Rebels have worked z alcuJy to establish bat
teries near the Nansetnond, so as to stop our
boats, but the naval arm was not to lie parul
ized so easily ; the gunboats have patrolied so
vigilantly, and shelled ihe Rebels so boufsti
fully, that they were compelled not only to
give up the attempt to cross, but eyen to es
tablish batteries. Gen. Dix went up the Nan
semond on Sunday to see for himself. On S it

and the Bth Connecticut, in conjuction with
the gunboats, stormed a Rebel battery on the
Western Branch, a stream coming into the

The affair seems to have been an important
succe-s ; six Rebel cannon and 200 men of the

On Saturdiv morning before daylight a
force of about 3,000 rebels with four pieces of
