    he made some mistakes; but he has been thwart
ed in the most malignant manner from the very
outset by the politicians in Congress and the rad
icals in the Cabinet. The greatest fault imputed
to him is excessive caution and lack of self confi
dence. But this arises from a just appreciation
of the difficulty of his task. An inferior mind
would be blind to this, and commit such terrible
blunders as that of Burnside at Fredericksburg.
McClellan was gradually feeling his way and
fitting himself to be a great military leader. He
was becoming bolder and bolder every day, and
More expert in handling a large army, as at An.
tietam, when his career was cut short by en order
from Washington, and inferior men put in his
it is not in a year or two years that a soldier,
MU with a good military education, but who
has seen little or no service, can rise from the
position of a captain of cavalry to that of a suc
cessful general commanding 100,000 men. How
long did it take to make the victor of Waterloo ?
How many battles did he fight in India and in
the Spanish Peninsula before ho attained the
skill to cope with Napoleon? At an earlier
period of his history Bonaparte asserted with
truth that he did not know one man in Europe
who was capable of conducting fifty thousand
men to battle. Why, then, should the fruits of
the ripe experience of years and genius combined
be expected from so young and inexperienced an
officer as General McClellan? By the greatest
military judge in the country, the veteran Win
field Scott, he has been recently pronounced the
ablest general the war has yet developed. He
had done the best his circumstances allowed, and
would have matured into a first class general as
rapidly, perhaps, as any who ever precede him.
with two or three rare exceptions. But he was
recklessly sacrificed last fall by a combination
of party spirit and imbecility, and from that day
to this the Army of the Potomac has made no
progress, while it has suffered serious disaster.
We fear that, through the same blundering which
hareharaeterixed the acts of the War Department
and the performance of so many of our generals
in the field, other disasters may be in store for
our army in the present campaign.
But there is one source of consolation and na
tional pride in the report—one distinguishing
feature of the war—and that is that the incom
petency of generals and of the War Department
has been redeemed by the intelligent courage
and discipline of the men. They have fought
like hives on every field; and even when they
knew that they were marched into the jaws of
death, without any advantage to the cause, they
shrank not from the sacrifice. This was the case
at Fredericksburg, where they said to each oth
er:— Boys, we are going into a slaughter pen ;
but we toast do it; come on." And even after
the dreadful defeat which they anticipated they
were ready to try it over again next day. There
is no example in history of troops fighting so
bravely and so well who have been so badly led.
By their brilliant fighting qualities they have
won imperishable renown. By the conduct of
the war from first to last the country has been
disgraced.—New York Herald.

This issue of the Reading Gazette commences
its twenty-fourth year. The present publisher,
who was also one of its projectors, finds no little
gratification, and some degree of pride, in Con
trasting its small beginnings and timid experi
mental efforts/pith the fixed, permanent, and
self-sustaining position it now holds among the
newspapers of the interior of the State. The
Gazette is old enough to speak for itself and to
take ears of itself; and, in circulation and in
fluence, has attained to a point beyond which few
weekly presses ever reach, Ito subscription list,
which has been steadily increasing, from the date
of its first publication, was never so well filled
with good, paying subscribers as at this time;
and its increase at present is more rapid than
ever. Since the first of January, 18113, we have
entered more new names upon our books than
were added during any previous year of its ex
istence; and new subscribers are still coming in
daily. All this has been accomplished without
any special effort on our part, or other induce
ment, beyond a steadfast adherence to the prin
ciples which we early embraced, in the full con
viction of their truth anti justice, and which we
believe to be essential to the preservation of the
free political institutions that our forefathers
established. Amid all the mutations of parties
and changes of administrations, which have oc
curred within the last sixteen years, the Gazette
has remained faithful to the party which has
proved itself, by experience, to be alone capable
of administering the Federal Government, under
the Constitution, in peace and union, and in har
mony with the reserved rights of the States; and
will labor earnestly for its restoration to power,
as the only hope that remains to the nation of
saving the Government from anarchy and disso
lution, on the one hand, or from the equally fear
ful evils of arbitrary centralized rule and mili
tary despotism, on the other. _Grateful to the
friends who have stood by us through so many
eventful years, we enter upon another editorial
year with the encouragement of their peat ap
proval and support to nerve us to renewed dili
gence and energy, and to inspire us with the
confident hope that their good-will and "material
aid" will continue to attend us.

The Democratic County Meeting on Tuesday
last, was a monster gathering of the people.
Called only by a single notice in the Adler and
Gazette of the previous week, without handbills,
Circulars, music, or any of the means commonly
employed to create an excitement and draw
crowds, it was yet by far the largest mere county
meeting that ever assembled in Reading. The
spacious courtroom, usually large enough to ac
commodate all who attend our ordinary ptiblio
meetings, was found too small to hold even one
half of the attendants on this occasion, so that,
after organization, the meeting was adjourned to
the Court Hence yard, the ample space of which
was soon tilled with thousands of staunch Demo
crats from every quarter of the county, eager to
testify by their presence to their undying de
votion to those principles of personal freedom
and constitutional right which were bequeathed
to them by dEviettsoN and the founders of the
republic. This meeting was a significant ex
pression of the feeling that has been aroused
throughout our county by the wanton attempt
that was made in the streets of this city a few
weeks ago, by a party of intolerant and perse
cuting Abolitionists, to excite mob violence
against a few hundred unoffending country-men,
who came to town, ill-advisedly, it may be, but
peaceably, in strict conformity to the right which
the Constitution declares shall never be taken
away from them by Congress or any other pow
er, and with no intention, either by word or act,
to disturb the peace, or to interfere with the due
process of the law against their neighbors who
had been placed under arrest. Tho lesson that
the meeting teaches is, that the people of Decks
county, who have always been distinguished for I
their patient submission to all their duties as
citizens, also know their riylas, and have de
termined to maintain them.
The resolutions that were adopted aro plain,.
outspoken, and to the point. They are bold,
but not defiant—decided but not intemperate, in
their tone and language. They counsel obedi
ence to all the duties which the cilizen owes to
the Constitution and laws, and to the authority
of those who administer them ; lint at the same
time they firmly declare that the rights which
are guarantied under the same Constitution and
laws, shall be jealously maintained against all
attempts, whether of Executive power or military
force, to usurp them.
It was to be regretted that any thing occurred
to render this meeting necessary ; but for that,
the Democracy of Derks are not responsible ; and,
the necessity having arisen, they have met it in
a manly way and as becomes freemen.
The Democratic Convention of Dauphin county
met at Harrisburg on Tuesday last, and elected
Dr. C. SEILER and Jolts RAYMOND Delegates to
the next Democratic State Convention, and unani
mously instructed them to support Hon. HIESTER
CLYMER for Governor. The following are the
resolutions of instruction, which were adopted
by the unanimous vote of the Convention :
Resolved, That the sound Democratic princi
ples, the brilliant talents and the unblemished
honor which distinguish the character of the
Honorable iIIESTEIL CLYNE:It, are fully appreci—
ated by the Democracy of Dauphin county ; and
that, therefore, our delegates to the State Demo
cratic Convention are hereby instructed to use
every honorable means to secure his nomination
for the office of Governor of this Commonwealth.
" An honest man IS the noblest work of Cod."
Resolved, That our Senatorial conferees be in
structed to use their best endeavors to ensure the
election of a Senatorial delegate favorable to the
nomination of the Hon. Hies-mut CLYMER.
Resoived, That Fred. Lauman, John Wise and
A. W. Loomis be the Dedbcratic Senatorial con
ferees from the county of Dauphin.
The Democratic Convention of Lycoming county
also met on Tuesday, and, as we learn by a dis
patch from Williamsport, "instruothd unani
mously for ILIESTEIL CLYME.U."
The Democracy of Berks feel highly compli
mented and encouraged at these additional evi
dences of the popularity of the candidate they
have presented for the Gubernatorial nomina
tion; and anticipate with confidence thpt the
State Convention will make him its choice.

At this stage of the proceedings, it was found
that only a small portion of the people present
could be crowded into the court•room ; and a
motion was therefore made, and carried, that the
meeting adjourn to the Court House yard. On
re-assembling, all the available space in the
yard, on the walls, and upon the roofs adjoining,
was filled with an attentive assembly of sevuiA
thousand persons.
The meeting was again called to order by the
President, aud, during the absence of the Com•
mittee, ably addressed by Wm. ROSENTHAL, Eoq.,
in German, and by the Tz• - 'n. J. Cluny - JONMS,
in English.
The Committee, haying returned, reported the
following Resolutions, throng 4 3 essr, G. HAWLEY,
Esq., to
W.LIEREAs, it is among the inalienable rights
of a free people to assemble, either in pub—
lic or in private, openly or secretly, as they
may choose, subject only to the Constitution and
Laws of the land; and whereas, an attempt has
recently been made by the present authorities of
the United States, in violation of those rights,•
by arresting peaceable citizens of the County of
Berks, carrying them. beyond the jurisdiction of
their own Courts, on charges and pretences
founded on mere rumor and without the slightest
foundation in fact; therefore,
Resolved, Brthe Democracy of Dories County
in mass meeting assembled, that while we will
obey the Constitution and Laws of our country,
and make no forcible resistance to the execution
of any process administered by the government
within the [Units of its logitLoo.te functions, we
will not submit to nor tolerate the slightest en
croachments upon our rights and privileges;
such attempts will meet with our resistance at
all hazards, arid regardless of consequences.
Regobed, That secret societies, political or
otherwise, are not in themselves in violation of
the Constitution and Laws, and that whenever a
free people see proper to organize themselves, in
secret or in public, they have a right to protec
tion; and if the government, for political pur:
poses, fails to render that protection, we pledge
ourselves to furnish it to the extent of our pow
Resolved, That whenever such societies are
organized upon principles at variance with the
Constitution and Laws, in their letter or spirit ;
or wherever the tendency of such organization
infringes upon the constitutional rights, of any
citizen, on d'ecount of the place of his birth,—his
religion or any other. guaranteed right,—we re
gard such societies as illegal, subversive of law
and order, and deserving the condemnation of
all good citizens.
Resolved, That while the Democracy of Berke
recognizes and sustains the rights of our people,
under such restrictions, to so organize as a mere
question of right appertaining to freemen, and
deems it of the highest importance that eternal
vigilance at all limes should be exercised to
guard against the slightest encroachments upon
any rights, we do not deem secret political or
ganization either desirable or expedient., so long
as open organization can be maintained without
danger from armed intervention or of bodily
harm. Unless such danger exists, the tendency
will almost invariably be dangerous to the rights
of others; by falling into the hands of bad men
public liberty as well as private right may be
undermined before the public is aware of the
danger; these evils, under the control of good
and true men, may be avoided, but secret socie
ties of a political character are favorites with all
that class of men who dread the light for fear of
Resolved, That if secret political societies have
been recently organized among us, it is to be pre
sumed they are for no other purpose than the
protection of their rights against unlawful ar
rests, or the execution of unconstitutional laws,
until the contrary is proved; the character of
our people warrants this belief; but, as such ob•
jecls can better be secured by the open organiza
tion of cur whole people in strict accordance
with law, and without furnishing pretexts for
armed intervention by a military power., we
earnestly recommend all such to abandon th e
secret features and join us in open organization
in every Ward, Township and limmugh of r • •
county. Such a movement will give us strength
and power at home; inspire confidence, and
wield moral influence abroad.
.Resoloal, That we are equally hostile to Aboli
tionists north, and Secessionist• south. We re
gard both alike, as tending to the same results ;
one is the openly avowed. a
Confederacy; the other thc.alvoeate of princi—
ples which must. inevitably .1 there.'
Resntoed, That we regard the Emancipation
Proclamation, the Conseriptiott law, and the
Confiscation eels, as ~ :oarly uueolu.liutional;
but while we pledge our united efforts to test
them in all legal modes within our resell, we
will not infringe upon, or violate any law, what
ever may be our present opinions, until it is pro
nounced by the proper Judicial Authorities to ha
mill and void. It is better to bear many griev
ances of a temporary character, than to plunge
our country into anarchy, ending in military
despotism, and destroying all our hopes for the
Resaved, That resistance by force to an inva
sion of our personal freedom is a virtue; and if
the insane threat of a distinguished military
chieftain, (distinguished more for the position
he holds, than for achievements in arms) to put
his heel upon the necks of Northern men, be at
tempted to be carried out, we promise hint a
warm reception. In order to allay any undue
excitement, however, that might be occasioned
by this threat, we deem it proper to add, that as
this same authority has informed us, that we are
not to be molested, until the rebels are lint sub•
clued; we are of opinion, judging by past pro
gress, that the pvv.t.ient. generation at the %rth
can hardly feel themselves interested in the
• Rooked, That we recommend Open orgariza—
ttone in every Ward, Tourahip and Borough of
our County, in order to su.l!ain Lha constitution,
the Union and the Laws, and at the same time
to resist every encroachment upon our personal
rights and freedom, guarantied by that inetru
rnent, and those laws.
Resolved, That we are inflexibly and unaltera
bly devoted to the Constitution and the Union,
with such additional guaranties as may protect
the rights of minorities from all future aggres—
sion. Wo do not approve of this war as at pre—
sent conducted. We never did approve of it iu
itself, but accepted it in preference to disunion,
anarchy and despotism, under pledges that it
should be conducted solely with a view to the
restoration of the Union. These pledges have
been broken, the War is converted into an aboli
Lion crusade, and we are free from any obliga
tions, except those of obedience to law.
Resoled, That we will patiently wait the pro
gress of events. Until power passes from the hands
of the present Administration under the forms of
law, we will continue to urge upon Congress,
and upon the States the repeal of all unconstitu
tional acts, and the calling of a National Con
vention to amend the Constitution. If these
fail, our hopes centre in the sovereign rigllts of
the State of Pennsylvania, and in order that she
may be prepared* to exercise those rights, we
urge upon our fellow citizens the necessity of or
ganization, the selection, and election of our ablest
anti best men for Governor, and Legislat ors ; and
in the meantime we have no terms of peace to
offer to any quarter, except upon the basis of
Resolved, That the proceedings of this meeting
be published in the Democratic papers of the
county, in the Age and Evening Journal, Phila—
delphia; the Norristown Regisler Ilarrivinvg
Patriot and Union; and Unbar/ill Post.
The resolutions were unanimously adopted,
with loud acclamations ; after which the meeting
WAS farther addressed by the lion. thanes
CLYMER and JAMES B. BBC/ITEM, Esq. All the
speeches were eloquent expressions of the spirit
of the resolutions, and were greeted with hearty
