The Pinkies on Lake Erie.
Jobt, before election the .northern lakes
.warmed with }lrma, coming right over
to burn all our cities in one day. So Raid
SeWard, Shoddt & Co. Election is over
and the Pirates vanish—till next October.
The CleveLind-Herald says- that Capt.
Kelly, of the Steamer Pacific, reports to
Gen:•Hooker that on Saturday : night, 20
miles above Buffalo, be: fell in -.with the
suspected pirate; that he found eight men
on board, all told, six of them drunk; that
sho:was bound for Port Sarnia, there to
load with wood for Chicago and return
sAth her again.: There was nothing sus
picious about theicraft, nor about any of
those on board, and - nothing piratical to
he seen. '
Pnerssnc.—Seward, in his speech at
Auburn on the 4th, said :
"You have already abundant evidences
of the exhaustion of the rebels, but not
3 et evidence of their consciousness of that
exhaustion. Those evidences will appear
131MSDtATELY on the announcement of the
reelection of Abraham Lincoln."
The people are hopefully looking for
' Ouse evidences," and ant Seward &
Co. to produce them bet . ° ,e another draft
dispels the illusion.
The Peace Rumors.
The country is dooded with rumors
which come ftom Washington, in refer/
once to offers of peace.to the South by
the administration. They are all humbug,
and only serve to amuse the. people. Lin
coln is pledged to " war FOR Abolition,"
and that or disinifon will yet fully appear
aS the ultimatum of the party in power..
He may offer peace to the South on the
impossible basis of abolition; that reject
ed, another draft. follows.
The question of putting slaves into the
rebel army seems now to be under con
sideration at the South. Setae are for it
forthwith, while some propose using a
limited number for camp labor,—mean- ;
time training them for fight—their places
to be filled by a series of drafts—if found
advisable. It will doubtless result that
a general slave arming will be resorted
to whenever subjugation threatens. Bad
as is the result of the war upon the whites,
it seems likely also to destroy the blacks.
Some Pennsylvania agents to take sol
diers votes were arrested on pretended
charges of some kind, but have been re
leased as nothing can be proved against
Nothing more has been 'done about
New York agents, and we think the
whole thing will end in amoke . it was a
plot of the shodffies" to affect the elections,
auff cover up their own frauds. The cOn
fessions" of culprits were stool pigeons in
the pay of Lincolnisni to make the matter
read well till after election.

core of law aro partibitlarly mum on'the

are afloat as to the extent of the robber

ions of dollars worth of, property has been
stolen within two or three years past, but
various sums are mentioned', even as low
as fifty thousand. There are some honest
men in the yard, and because of the very
secret manner in , whieh the affair has been
conducted, legally precludes the publish

The "Soldier' Friends."
The shoddy party claim to be the only
soldiers'friends and that pone others are
willing to let soldiers lota. But listen to
what the Lincoln Qtgan a; Harrisburg
says 'of the soldiers in Camp Curtin who
dared' o Vote for McClellan. The article,
which was doubtless written by an officer,
shoddy , agent, or camp-follower, says that
the solclien3 whO voted against Abe :
" Own no soul 9f their own, and are as
incapable of self-government as is a pig to
p4form on the trglatlope. We know, and
pronounce them Traitors. A sneaking,
cowardly guerrilla deserves neither mercy
nor quarters, on any terms.
We have set a mark upon their actions
of yesterday, by which we can tell them,
and point them oat
_* * with the
brand of treason on their foreheads, as
glowing as the curse that was fastened on
the brow of Cain."
All this, and more, to soldiers for vo
ting as they chose! What tyranny!
Limoln'd "Election" in Tenzuassee.
A correspondent of the Louisville Jour=
nal, at Nashville, describes how'the vete
of Tennessee vas cast - fi' Lincoln and
Johnson, according to "my *lir," under
Johnson's proclamation :
I visited a few of the' polls in this city
to-day, to see in what manner the people
are permitted to vote. I went with the
expectation of seeing the form of justice
displayed at least, but even thSt is dispen
sed with. The most palpable frauds any
nation ever groaned under have been en
acted this day. The process is this : A,
person enters and Says 'he wishes to Tote.
Andy Johnson's teat oath is read to , him,
which he swears to, and then an abolition
ticket is thruit into his band, (for there is
no other) 'atid he gives his name. That's
the 'whole proceeding. 'No more questions
are asked, and he is permitted to vote at
other polls if he sees fit to 'do so, or he
may return under another name, and vote
again, or as many times as he wants to,
provided be has a new Dame each time.
One of the polls is completely surrounded
with negtoes that are voting. It is so
croirded that foot passengers hate to
cross on the other side. A negro stands
at the door, and takes the names and
tickets, (the form' fan oath is dispensed
with here) which are passed to the clerks
The Shoddy Convention in Louisiana.
Startling disclosures have followed the
adjournment of the late bogus • constitu
tional Convention of Louisiana, showing's
most reckless and wanton expenditure of
the public Money by that body, while in .
session. Besides pi is for printing, which
exceed $200,000, though involving a slight
discrepancy:of $3,4,000, or, some such tri
fle, there is
,a charge of nearly $50,000 for
refreshments andlandries, consisting in
large part of stimulants:to_assist members
of the convention in their severe labors.
First, we have $414 for ice tokeep them
001, bait was too much, they were too
cool—nearly frozen; anLbeace, we have
$9,421 35 for liquors to 'thaw them out
and restore warmth, and for cigars to
steady their nerves. Some few were more
delicate than others, and when partially
restored, a little nourishment became ne
cessary. Dr. Galpin was, sought. Some
soup, shrimps, green peas, and soft-shell
-cram, a dose, of Sweetmeats, steaks, and
potatoes, poked down. with sticks of as
paragus ; peaches by the way of pills, and
