Who Betray the Government.
The fact , that this Government has been at
war for more than two years, with a rebellion
that is sustained by a'less force than that which
is in the field to crush , it, is suggestive of some
strange criticisms ..The Southern are the infa
nor of the Northern people in =my of the essen
tials of war. They have-less resources, no more
abiiity—less vigor, no more skill—less endur
ance, no more enthuslasm—and yet the Govern
ment has f Iliad to conquer a puce.: We write
failed because peace should haVe been conquered
long since. Why is this- so? We answer be
cause the - friends of the traitors in the, North
have bad the prestige of privilege on theli aide
ever since the war commenced ; and because at,
least one-third of those in command in the
army, are bitterly opposed to the politics of the
Administration, and do not hesitate very often
to declare that they are;content to suffer defeat
so that it makes capital against "the
damned abolitionists." The same is the
case with many of the employees in the De
partments in Washingtonloity. Recent events
have shoWn that there were and doubt
less still are clerks in the employ of the Govern
ment, who glory in their infidelity to its policy,
and who take every opportunity to apprise the
rebels of our contemplated movements. Suppose
the French people, when Napoleon was thunder
ing in the valleys of Austria,had made issue with
the French Government, and offered their sym
pathies to that of Austria? Suppose that tt e
English people, when the war in the ,Crimes
was at its heighr, would have offered an alli
ance with Russia, and insisted on tendering aid
and comfOrt to the Russian soldi.rs, to the die
advantage of the British men. Of war. Would
either acivernment haver tolerated such an oppo
sition ? We think not Rati, they done so, the
world would ; have laughed at their imbecility and
rejoiced in their defeat. If there is any differ
ence between our Government and those of
France and England, it is that we arringaged
in a struggle holier andnobler than any which'
ever held the armies of those governments to,
gether, and theiefore the opposition which nei
ther France nor England would have tolerated,
becomes , doubly • infamous and damnable when
attempted against the National' Government in
its present straits.. , N)twithetandiag Men in
dulge in charges against the tyranny of this
Government, thei„,fact that those charges are
brnted in every public place and on'every pub
lic occasion, where politica come in to insult
patriotitim—the very fact that this is so, is
proof positive' that the. Government is not ty
rannical,or such charges would not be tolerated:
The evidence of a government's tyranny Is gen
erally seen in ifs acts, and not heard in the
eomplaints of those over whom it tyrannizes.
The slaves of :the South have never been able
to denounce their masters, and who will dare
deny that , tyranny does not exist there, wheie
women are publicly whipped, and - children are '
scoiirged to their hard rest every night " I
So flinch for thetyranny of which the North
ern sympathizers with treason so greatfy-',corn-,
plaint. That 'argument of ctritildnr as
fallacious as that which the SOutit makes use of
to juatify its treason. The cry of tyranny : in
the North is made to attract, the attention of,
the world from the atrocities daily perpetrated'
inethefouth: In this 'manner oar 'Northern
traitors serve two piarrkosee. They give aid and
comfort to traitors,mul mislead chriatip
lion ee to the true character of the coiAiktrati
in this etruggle. Had it not been for frdsa'
charges made by these men against the Govern
nient, thealiveheilderif rebellion would net have
bad single itiehd In Europe. It WOutd l never
have - been regarded in the dignified position of
a revolution. Its bloody villainni9 i would have
been exposed ; every:o;9re, until those. in arms
to `overthrow theethavernme avonldth avebeen
outlawed .by the rail n t friends.of social &der'
throughout the world... - 12 - • .
—We hold, then, that the Northern sympa
thizer with treason is far worse than the South
Ern traitor. The, one acts uoer`.. a Ooid Purpose
to do that , whichtheihnowsitcalroingt- 7 ,a
rheMa istid , thwardlyWrong, , this party
and his politics may be vindicated and sus
tained. The other acts under a fearful halluci
nation—is the victim of passion and the fair
representation of barbaric ignorance. The
reinton of slavery is guilty of the blood:11e,, of
the rebellion—the tool of Democracy is respon
ible for the misery, the orphanage, the widow
hood, the suffering, the debt and the accumu
lated burdens of treason. These, then, ere
really the men who betray the Government.
The copperheads who have all along been
waiting patiently to welcome a rebel army in
its victorious march through the loyal States,
to rear the "bars and stale over Banker Hill
monument, begin to discover that their fond
hopes will never be realized. These men did
all they could to secure the success of rebellion.
They belied the army and traduced the Gov
ernment. They betrayed our military plans and
derided our civil policy. They have done all
to make treason triumphant, but risk their
miserable necks in the halters provided for the
punishment of traitors, or stood . up in the rebel
ranks and fought bravely In abed cause. When
defeat or disaster overtook our armies, the re
sult of the mae:hinations of these 'men, they
were the tirs,t to clap their hands in glee, arid
claim the -Verification of their predictions that
we could never conquer the South. Now, how
ever, the tide of war begins to change. UpOn
its foaming crest victories are about to be borne
to the arms and the flag of the Government.
'dark our prediction, then, with reference "to
these double dyed hypocrites and traitors. The'
very men who have been decrying ..the war as
unjust—who have been assailing the Governj
ment astyrannical- . ---will be the first to trample
on the fallen foes of_ the - Union. The humani-'
ty which the rebels have heretofore denied to
loyal men, will be refused them by their old
allies, the copperheads of the North, provided,'
always, that the rebels fail. Blatant. Demo--
cratic treason =tigers will then become intol'
erant adineates of brutal measures. They will
become the noisy advocates of rigor and stern
measures, when the victors themselves will be
thinking of magnanimous terms of peace, that
•order and happiness, fraternal feeling and
national harmony may again prevail and bless
- I Mark our prediction !
Views of Senttier's. Men
We do most solemnly affirm, as the result of
our life long acquaintance, and of our intimate
familiarity with ail workings, that the insti
tution of slavery tends to dishonor labor and
smother enterprise ; is incompatible with an
intelligent public policy, sound morality, the
safety and permanency of the Republic, the de
velopement of the resources of the State ; that
it roots out the industrious, and has the effect
of lessening the free population of the country.
We take theabove extract trOm the patriotic
and fearless address of the Union Club of Nash
ville, Tennessee. We ask the Copperheads and
Pea,ce Democrats of this State, who are contin
ually harping upon the blessings of slavery,
and who pretend to base their opposition to the
government upon the fact that the President
has issued his proclamation, giving freedom
the slaves of rebel masters, to read and pen.
der. The above extract is the free expression
of Southern Union men, who have had a "life
long acquaintance" with the peculiar institu
tion, and who, from a Southern stand point,
condemn it as "incompatible with an intelli
gent ,public policy and sound morality and
safety and harmony of the Republic.". Whose
opinion is entitled 'to the •most respect, the
Union men who have all their lives lived under
the influence of slavery, or the Copperheads of
the North who would let the Union slide, rather
than to part with the institution f Let , every
candid man judge.
—ln this connection it is a matter of import..
MO to know that in localities where slavery
exists and where the rebel cut-throats are not
in power to overawe the people, 'there the
masses have declared emphatically in favor of
the justice and practicability of the emancipa
tion proclamation. In Missouri, after one of
the hardest fought political hattlee over waged,
with slavery prevailing, but with the loyal sen
timent predominant,the policy of emancipating
the slaves as provided for i by the President's
proclamation on that subject, was made an issue
and triumphantly carried by the friends of
the measure. In Maryland, the same result
followed the same test. In portions of "Ken
tucky and Tenneasee—in, fact, wherever thei e
is power to defy the cut-throats of Jeff Davis,.
the people of the slave States riki t rove the
emancipation policy. It bai been reserved
for the copperhead Democracy of the ; loyal
states, in conjunction with their political
allies; the slavehalding traitors of the South,
to Oppose that Measure. Our copperhead neigh::
hors fear its operation may affect their political
prespects, while their traitor al i llea know that
it will destroy their , corrupt social; system, by
which they have maintained' a superiority

The Charleston literary says that the rebel
Congress, in secret session, has passed an act by
which Jeff Davis is.authorised = to' suspend the
writ of betfreas corpse at pleasure. The fact has
been knowzi,in the North for some time ; but

DRAKE'S PA PENT CHURN POWER ! !
Patented July 8, 1862.
MP:TCH labor and ingenuity have l'een ec
ended in efforts to reduce the labor, time
and trouble of chur tang milk and cream to pro
duce butter. The old method of churning by
handr squires so much time and labor that reset t
has beet, had to various machines propelled by
dogs, sheep, calves, &c., for the purpose of say
ing this time and laor. Bat the :nconve
niente and unpleasantness arising from the me or
these animals as a propelling power are such at
to render any improvement which will obviate
the necessity of their use a great desideratum.
After placing the milk in the churn, it it
only necessary to wind !up the weight by mans
of the crank, which can be done in from two
to three minutes, and the machine will rue
thirty minutes without re-wiudin4, when, if:
the churning is not finished: it can be re-wand.
This power can be so regaltVe I as to propel a
churn of any size, from one quarter of a barrel
to two barrels.
Without any change in the machinery, a
child from eight to ten years of age, c in, by
means of a lever attached to the fly-a heel,
verse the motion, wind up the machine ir, ten
minutes, churning at the samet. i
me w i t h
barrel churn; and then, by letting go e: ne l ever‘
the motion again reverses, and the t run,
down, continuing the operatior, for twenty
minutes longer at a slower rat', thus finishing
the churning and gathering th e b utter i n t h e
The grand object of ar, machinery is to say a
time, and the proprieV x of this machine claims
great superiority for 'a to this respect. Mowing
machines and thrashing machines will 233VC,
from one hundre(t to two hundred pur cent, in
time, while thi's machine will save from twelve
hundred to fourteen hundred per cent., as will be
wen by a nimple arithmetical calculation on
what has already been shown. Two minutes'
Went* will - secure thirty minutes' churniug
This power can be operated in three differ
ent ways :
let. By means of a crank to wind.
2nd. By a lever attached to a fly-wheel.,
which winds and churns at the same time.
ad. By a leaver at fly-wheel without winding
Toe machine is so constructed that it
occupies a space of only four feet by tw feet,
and is placed in the room where the churnir g,
is done ; and it is frequently the else that
washing is done in the same room. In all such
cases it can be used also to pound out clothes,
which is a much moreeconomical mode of wad i
ing than to do it all by rubbing.
Instead of appending to this circular a list 4 r
certificates in regard to the merits of the ma
chine, we prefer to let it show for itself.
This machine was patented July Bth, 186:.,
by A. A. Drake, and the patent right for the
States of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana 111inem,
