, "A sentiment not to be appalled, corrupted or
ileinprogaised. It knows no baseness; it Cowers to
no danger; it oppresses no weakness. Destructive
only of Asspotism, it is the sole conservator of lib
erty, labor and property. It is the sentiment of
Freedom, of equal rights, of equal obligations--the
law of nature pervading the law of the land."
Wednesday, Nov, 27, 1861.

along, friends, without delay.

OUR PAPER-HOW TO INCREASE ITS
If our Democratic friends in the several
townships would make a little effort, the
circulation of the Messenger might be
largely increased. There are hundreds
without a paper who ought to have it and
can well afford to take it. Indeed they
sannot el i ford to be without it, or sortie reliable
journal, in these stirring and exciting
times. Will not the friends of the paper
in the various districts of the county, de
vote a little time and effort to the work of
enlarging our circulation? Let us see
what townships will send us the LARGEST
LIST Of GOOD, PAYING STBSCRIBERS. We
will publish the names of the friends who
send us subscribers, with the number they
send. We trust we shall have a great
many acknowledgements of the kind to
make. Who will be the first to help us?
COL. JNO. W. REAZELL.
We are gratified to learn that this gen
tleman, our esteemed cotemporary of the
Uniontown "Standard," has been appoint
ed Brigade Quartermaster of Volunteers
by President Lincoln. Col BEAZELL'S in
domitable energy, as well as his integrity
and capacity, will make him a most effi
cient and popular officer. Indeed, in the
circle of our acquaintance we know of no
one more admirably fitted for the position
than our young friend, and we rejoice sin
cerely in his good fortune.
AN INDIGNANT EDITOR.
Hear what the Editor the Erie Dis
patch says of subscribers who discontinue
their paper without settling up arrearages.
We thank fortune we have few such chaps
in our bailiwick :
War"Nosubscribers who are honest men,
or men of the least possible principle, will
ever return a paper, through a postmaster,
marked •`refused," when they have been
taking it on credit for years, without first
settling with the publisher. No man who
is not a mean, dirty, lousy, sneaking, con
temptible, penny and sheep stealing cuss,
would be guilty of such an act."
TRUE AS PREACHING.
The Erie City Dispatch, a conservative
Republican paper, thus speaks of the loud
mouthed Abolitionists of our day. It is a
faithful and life-like daguerreotype of that
class of politicians, and we commend it to
"The loudest-mouthed Abolitiotionists
have proved the greatest cowards—and
when you hear a man say that he will not
consent to a termination of this war
nntil every vestige of slavery is erad
icated from our soil, set him down
as a coward, and as an Abolitionists who
hates the Constitution and the . laws to a
degree as intense as if he were a secession
istanda rebel. The fact is becoming eve
ry,day more apparent, that if peace and
properity is ever again to bless our coun
try, the administration of Mr. Lincoln
must be supported firmly upon a constitu
tional basis—the Constitution must be our
guide, our hope and salvation, and he who
accepts the war upon any other basis, is a
traitor at heart and an enemy to the Gov
ernment. He who is not for his country
is against it, and he who is in favor of this
war upon any other than a strict constitu
tional basis, is as great an enemy to the
United States as the men now found in
arms against it. These are our opin

think alike the better it would be for our

Here is another most appropriate song
for the gallant and patriotic souls who
have so much to do at home in the way of
"shaking their gory locks" at Democrats
and denouncing them as "cowards," that
they can't get time to do anything else for
their country than play soldier, like vil
lage lads on Summer days:—
RALLYING SONG OF THE HOME
DEDICATED TO THAT HIGHLY OHNLII&ENTAL ASSOCIATION
Adapted to the classical aria Root, Hog, or Die.'
Come all ye jolly soldier boys and listen unto
The Home Guard is our regiment as any one
We never can be conquered, for at home we
mean to stay,
And since we'll have no fighting here, we'll
never run away.
We like the regimentals but we cannot stand
The rations, and the powder, and the tramping
through the mud,
They talk of fame and glory—you can put it
in your eye,
Big pig, little pig, root, hog, or die.
Home, home, sweet, sweet home,
For soldiers like the Home Guard there's nary
place like home.
They've dressed us up so sweetly and they've
called us Union Grays,
We've got a handsome uniform for which the
city pays ;
We oughtn't spoil our gorgeous clothes by go
ing to the war,
And getting them discolored by the powder,
mud and gore;
The country needs a Safe Guard and the safest
guard we know
Is the guard that always stays at home when
other people go ;
We'll not be wheedled to the field, on that you
Big pig, little pig, root, hog, or die.
We love our country dearly, and ['d like to see
Who talks and swaggers louder than our small
est member can ;
We'd like to go to heaven, but we'd rather ride
Let others do the fighting and our boys can do
the talk ;
We won't desert our regiment until it's called
And then there'll be a general slide that won't
be very slow ;
The Government will get from us a rather scant
Big pig, little pig, root, hog, or die
We'll ne'er forsake the liquor shops until the
We never saw the demijohn we couldn't put to
The gin-mills can't afford to lose our custom
if we're shot,
We must protect the whisky, though the coun-
try goes to pot;
We'll curse the Southern Army and we'll swear
with all our might,
And drink all kinds of liquor and do anything
They'll never get us started and had'rt better
Big pig, little pig, root, hog, or die
'Tis not for want of courage but we do not like
To dine on horrid pork and beans and sleep
upon the snow,
Where bullets poke us in the ribs and whistle
round our heads,
Deprived of ruin and Charlotte Russe and even
Where cannons keep exploding, and the balls
get flying round
In such a way you're only safe when dead and
We never could endure it, and we do not mean
Big pig, little pig, root, hog, or die
Then come ye gallant soldier boys, and don't
you be afraid,
We'll cut a splurge with Smith's brass band
and have a grand parade ;
The streets shall see a glorious charge in our
And all the realms of chivalry shall tremble in
their boots ;
We'll strike with awe the tittle boys and show
our martial grit;
And the hosts of girls on either side shan't
frighten us a bit.

HOW TO GET ALONG.
We have some suggestions to offer which
will enable our readers to get through life
in the most easy manner. If a bee has
the audacity to sheathe its sting in your
cuticle, justice demands that you should
intantly upset the hive wherein the offend
er has his headquarters, and exterminate
every bee therein. If a dog bites you in
the calf of the leg, stern justice demands
that you should bite the dog in the calf of
his leg. On the same principle if an irate
donkey rudely elevates his posterior ex
tremities against your sacred person, the
true way is to kick back. If a horse falls
upon you, the sublime principle of lex
talionie requires that you should fall upon
the horse. If Joggs calls you a liar, the
treatment is to call him a liar and a thief
into the bargain. If you are a farmer,
and a neighbor's cow happens to get into
your young corn, your instant mode of
satisfaction is to turn all your cows, hogs
ect., into his own. By following out
these sublime ideas of justice and self
respect, your daily life will be full of sweet
peace, and you will eventually become as
docile and playful as a kitten.
" HOW THIS WORLD IS GIVEN TO
Twenty mortals balance the ledger of
life every second and twelve hundred are
rubbed out of existence every hour. ' Eve

flowers of each returning spring bloom

The population of the world is 800,000,000,
and so every man runs seven chances in
800 of dying in a year. The odds are „in

not to remain unnoticed.
JOHN C. BEECKINRIDGE'S MANI
We have at last received a copy of the
recent address of Mr. JOHN C. BaECKIN
RIDGE to the people of Kentucky, and we
propose to notice a few of its most promi
nent features. "Among all who have
figured in this most unnecessary and
shameless rebellion," remarks a cotempo
"Mr. Breckinridge occupies a bad
pre-eminence: because he figures not less
as a pitiable dupe than as a treacherous
and brazen-fact d ingrate against the na
tion which has elevated him to high and
undeserved honor. "As a jewel of gold in
a swine's snout"—to use an expression in
the sacred writings—so has been the be
stowal of the second office in the Republic
upon him; and it is something at least
upon which all true citizens may congrat
ulate one another when such an one as he
finally throws off the mask to find his true
level amongst the bevy of heartless trai
tors who are attempting the destruction
of the Union and the Constitution.
The whole production may be charac
terized in a single line as an attempt
to "take advantage Qf hi.; own wrong ;" an ef
fort which the law he attempts to abuse to
his purposes of justification emphatically
declares "no man" shall do. Assuming
that because certain States in rebellion
have no representatives in Congress the
Government is destroyed, he would thus
estop every patriotic citizen from coming
to the rescue against the traitors whose
action, along with his own, has placed it
in this position.
lie tells the people of Kentucky that he
does not resign because he thinks he has
misrepresented them! "On the contrary"
—(he says)—"l believe that my votes and
speeches in the Senate have expressed
your deliberate will, as attested through
If we Fcan the thousand gross assump
tions that have emanated from the whole
Secession phalanx, front the man of cool
exterior who heads the movement at Rich
mond, to the traitor Governor of Mis
souri, the man who tried to "precipi
tate? Missouri out of the Union by
"proclamation," there will nothing be
found so sublime in its impudence as
this declaration of Mr. Breckinridge.—
On the one hand we see the Legislature of
Kentucky, a body of men fresh from the
people, condemning his whole course ;
on the other, a persistent traitor try
ing his utmost to thwart the will of his
State when that will had been declared by
upwards of forty thousand majority. This
needs nothing in the way of comment to
show what may be expected from the re
mainder of this remarkable address.
He goes on to say that "the constitution
al compact which created and upheld the
old Union is at an end. A large number
of the original and additional parties have
withdrawn from it. So large a number
that its stipulation can no longer be exe
cuted, and under- Such circumstances no
court has ever decided a contract to be

attempted to enforce its execution. The
Constitution requires positively that each
State shall have at least one representa
tive in Congress, but now twelve States
have none ; that all duties, imposts and
excises shall be uniform throughout the
United States, but now, in more than one
third of them, none are or can be col
Now the Constitution that required a
representation from the States in Congress
also declares expressly, "that no State
without its consent, shall be deprived of its
equal suffrage in the Senate." Yet, as we
have already said and as the record of
facts proves, the recusants, and Mr. Breck
inridge amongst theta, in this rebellious
movement attempt "to take advantage of
their own wrong."
The same Constitution declares that the
President "shall take care that the laws
be faithfully executed," provides "that no
State shall enter into any treaty, alliance
or Confederation, grant letters of marque,
keep troops, or ships of war in time of
peace, or enter into any agreement or com
pact with 4nother State." That "trea
son against the United States shall con
sist only in levying war against them, or
in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid
and comfort." There is express power
given to "suppress insurrections," and in
article fourth, section fourth, it is provi
ded that "the United States shall guaran
tee to every State in this Union a repub
lican form of government, and shall pro
tect each against invasion, and on applica
tion of the 'egislature, or of the Execu
tive (when the Legislature cannot be con
vened,) against domestic violence."
But why appeal to the Constitution
against this bold violator of its every pro
vision ; and what are his flippant and im
pertinent complaints of its possible in
fractions worth when he himself has tram
pled it under his feet in all its length and
breadth ? Why even the Richmond Whig,
shamed into something like a desire to
preserve a showing of consistency in the
case of Kentucky, comes out in condemna
tion of the position assumed by those
leagued with Mr. Breckinridge in disre
garding the voice of that State. .We quote
from that paper :
"The telegraph informs us that Govern
or Magotan has issued his proclamation
requiring the Confederate troops to leave
the State. This proceeding, with the ac
tion of 11441 legislature, snake, tifis the action

mom um, maintat
The pretext—further on in the "Ad
dress"—that the Federal Government had
no right to occupy the soil of Kentucky
with its troops has not the semblance of
right. The Constitution, which provides
that the Government may "raise and sup
port the armies" certainly did not intend
that they should be "raised and support
ed" in Canada, or in South America ; but
as the troops of the paramount power,
they might be stationed anywhere within
the bounds of the Union, so that no in
fraction of private rights, no individual
oppression, was the consquence; and for
any such the law provides a remedy. Be.
sides, those in Keniucky are there upon
the c.tpress invitation of the authorities if the
iS'tate which gave no color if right for the in
vasion of the Confederates, since. even ac
cording to their new code, she had done
nothing to dissolve the ties which bound
her to the Government and the Union.
,S7lc had not "seceded."
In that portion of the "Address" which
deals with the action of the Kentucky
Legislature Mr. Breckinridge leads off
with the pithy remark that "It is not nec
essary to say much about the Legislature!"
With this remark every one will at once
agree. It is emphatically one of those
cases where "the least said the soonest
mended." He comes to the forced conclu
sion that their views were not entitled to
much respect or weight, because it must
be presumed that their views were formed
and put forth under military "duress."—
That is his "charitable" view of the case,
whilst he goes forward, steeped to lips in
"treason" himself, to denounce it for hav
ing passed "treason bills and tax bills !"
Dismissing the Legislature as the viper
might do the file he in vain essayed to
gnaw, he winds up with a touch of
the pathetic about Kentuckians being
delivered over to foreign mercenaries,
and " hunted like partridges upon
the mountains," proclaiming his pur
pose to take "the musket of a soldier."—
He might as well. He will never do as
much damage with that, if he were to
wield it for a thousand years, as he has
done in his lengthy masquerade as one of
the impersonations of public virtue in the
United States. Like Floyd and the whole
troop who has discovered that the most
solemn official oaths are naught, when the
betrayal of their country is the thing to he
accomplished, he is rapidly finding "his
place." Scorned by , the gallant State that
has so long tolerated his shortcomings, and
that he has done his best to betray to ruin,
it is to be hoped that his presence will nev
er again offend those who are endeavoring
to counteract his evil machinations, and
who have no sympathy with Political
WHERE THE DANGER LIES.
Ex-Governor WRIGHT, of Indiana, late
minister to Prussia, recently made a speech
at Indianapolis, in which he said:
"There is more danger this day from a
divided North than from anything else.—
A firm, decided, united North, will settle
the question, and that speedily. But we
must not listen to those violent, miserable Aboli
tionists of the North who are asserting that the
object of this war is to interfere with the institu
tions of the South. This is what the secession
ists of the South love to hear, because it unites
the South just in proportion as it is believed."
Aud Governor NYHIGHT ought to have
added, we can never have a "united North"
until Abolitionism is effectually "crushed
out." The Louisville Democrat, a gallant
Union paper, is right when it says : -
We make no apology for this wicked
effort in the South to destroy the Govern
ment. We grant the necessity of suppress
ing it; but the Abolitionism, that has
produced it, must also - he suppressed.—
Abolitionism and secessionism must be buried
in the same political grave. The patriot who
loves his country must consent to sacrifice

DEATH OF HEATON HILL, ESQ.
This gallant young soldier, a corporal in
Captain Burnap's company of the Ist Illi
nois cavalry, died at St. Louis. on Mon
day, the 14th day of October last. He
was with his company in the bloody affair
at Lexington, Missouri, and was wounded
severely in one of his thighs, and was
brought to St. Louis, where he died of his
wounds. Mr. Hill was one of our most
estimable citizens, a carpenter by trade,
who came here froitt Pennsylvania, some
ten years ago . , andrantiug that period earn
ed a high charscter for, probity, industry
and business habits: -4te . was among the
first to enlist in his country's cause, and
the general voice of his comrades is, that
he was a true man and sturdy soldier.—
His remains were brought home yester
day, (the 15th,) and were met at the depot
by some fifty of his company companions,
with a large number of other eiti7cos, and
escorted to the residence of his friend,
Goyn Sutton, Esq. .
The funeral will cake place to-day from
the Methodist church. The Odd Fellows'
lodges of the city, of which order the de
ceased was a member, and the members
of Captain Burnap's cavalry, in the city,
will be in attendance, to pay the last
funeral honors to a worthy citizen, a true
patriot and a gallant soldier, who gave up
his life in defence of his country.
Mr. Hill was in his 30th Near, and has
