Saturday Afternoon, November 15,1889.
A WAIL FROM CLEARFIELD
This morning's Patriot contains a letter from
that prince of demagogues and political hypo
crites, William Bigler, in which two impor
tant facts are brought before the public First,
Bigler complacently announces that he is not a l
candidate for the United States Senate, because
the geographical claims of the people of the
eastern part of the state transcend those of all
other localities. This is of course all bosh.
Bigler knows that of all other men in the state
who aspire to public position, he is the most
deepieed, the most contemptible and the most
of petionable to the people—and feeling this,
he essays to conceal his unpopularity under the
guise of a pretended deference to the geographi
cal claims of other portions of the Common
wealth. At the same time, while thus hypo
critically attempting to conceal his own abridg•
ed political and personal popularity, this plea
of geographical claim is made by Bigler
in the hope of killing off some rival in his
own locality—of choking out of political life
such men as Buckalew, and of gratifying his
low spirit by thus bringing new discord and dis
'tensions into his own party on the old principle
with such men, of either ruling or ruining.
Atter thus keenly gratifying hie spite,
Mr. Bigler proceeds to enlighten the public on
a plan to settle the great issue now made by
rebel traitors of his own party with the federal
government. When he conceived sod brought
forth this plan, his knees must have been in a
terrible condition, trembling as the leafless
branches of the sombre forests of his own dear
Clearfield, from which his vision is never di
rected, unless it be in emplorations for office, or
an effort for his "southern brethern" such as
he makes in his letter to Mr-Anderson. It is
a plea for treason in every line, sentence, and
paragraph. After suggesting all manner of
difficulties—after creating all sorts of obsta
cles, and pleading the impossibility of con
quering the south, the dough-face sneaks out,
the miserable trickster and abettor of treason
developes himself, when be attempts to
force the inference, that the war must be
ended by compromise, that the sword must
be sheathed, that our armies must be disband
ed, and this mighty Republic be humiliated in
compromise with a band of demagogues and
traitors of the ilk and meanness of such men
as William Bigler. When tuts letter Is com
pared with the one recently written by Mr.
Holt, oritentncky, we are totted to blush for
the reputation of Pennsylvania, however little
share in that reputation we are willing to ac
cord to William Sigler. Mr. Holt is in favor
of the extermination of traitors—of enforcing
the federal authority at the point of the bayo
net and the sword—of crushing out rebellion
even though it desolate the land, simply be
cause he believes that it were better for men to
live on rocks or in caves as freemen, than to
exist amid gilded splendor, as slaves.
Of course the people of Pennsylvania will
laugh to acorn the last dodge of a man weak in
the knees, to advertise his worn-out political
attractions, but for this first-rate notice we will
not charge our quondam friend and fellow
craftsman a cent. If Bigler had stuck to his
types, he might have been a respectable jour
printer. But as it is, he aspires to statesman
ship, and is now one of the miserable failures
and melancholy instances of over leaping am
NOW FOR THE WAR
Our Republican cotemporaries in the States
which have just held elections, are uniting to
give the Administration a full and hearty sup
port. Tt.ose who have been beaten in political
light, show their good sense to yield grace
fully, and wherever this has been the case, our
Republican cotemporaries submit to the ill
fortunes of politics, and turn with pattiotio
ardor to find consolation and enconragement in
the seal and enthusiasm with which they can
now devote themselves exclusively to the ser
vice of their country. And thus that the hurly
burly of the political contest is over, the people,
without respect to party, will resume the great
work of prosecuting the war. That work—in
a measure temporarily eusp , nded—will, we
trust, go on more vigorously than ever. Our
only salvation, as a Nation, lies in its prosecu
tion to a triu.upbant eud. We have put our
hand to the plow and must not look back.
We have made our election and have no alterna
tive but to stand by it. We have pledged Europe
.-we have pledged the world—that we would
put down this monstrous conspiracy and restore
the Union to its ancient integrity,—and Europe
and the world will hold ns to our word. We
have staked all upon the issue of the struggle
and must accept the dread result.
The man who counsels a surrender—the man
who even suggests compromises involving new
guarantees] to the enemy—the man who permits
the word "Peace," without victory, to pass his
lips—is no Patriot. He must knew—as the
whole world knows—that there can be no en
during peace on any other basis than an un
conditional surrender of the rebels. He must
know that to patch up an agreement with them
now, would be to confess ourselves whipped
and brand ourselves before all Christendom as
a nation of cowards, sneaks and braggarts I
Let not the people be deceived. Let them
not be wheedled by lying assurances that we
can "make up" with the enemy on terms hon
orable to ourselves. • Let them beware how
they listen to the siren voice of Peace, when
their is no peace but the peace of dishonor and
death. Let them, on the contrary, fully un
derstand that the war must go on more vigor
usly—more terribly—than ever. Let them
understand that there is no way of escape ex
cept through the din and carnage of battle—
that there is no 'node of salvation, except by
crushing the bead of the hydra and making the
very name Secession such a synonym of Terror,
that all men shall turn pale in hearing it.
The struggle may be long, but It can be
hardly doubtful. The strougar party must
emerge triumphant in the end. All History
assures us that we shall come out of the bloody
trial chastened and purified—a better, nobler
people—if we bat have the steadfastness to
complete the work we have commenced. We
are simply passing through one of those crises
—simply undergoing one of those disciplinary
trials—to which every nation that has attained
substantial greatness has been subjected. It is
the old story of disease in the system and the
effort of nature to expel it. If the Constitution
has not been hopelessly undermined by evil
courses ; if the virus of corruption has not
touched the vitals, the patient will recover.
The path of duty lies plain before us. No
Patriot can mistake it ; no man who loves the
Union as our Fathers made it, can hesitate
which way to go. If we turn back—certain
and utter ruin t If we press forward—much
suffering, heavy sacrifices, hard burdens, possi
bly poverty in its worst forms ; but certain tri
umph !—a present full of trial a future radi
ent and glorified.
ALL PAYS BUT-LABOR
In looking over the business world, and re
garding the enterprises of men with the stupen
dons plans and purposes of the government, we
are of en puzzled with a curiosity to know who
pays for all these vast undertakings. Of course
the mere handling of the money—the transfer
of sums of money, rightfully one's own—is not
the kind of pay to which we alluded. What
we mean is, who is to produce, labor, toil, and
stint themselves to pay for all the magnificent
plans of the government, all the luxuries and
the attire of the multitudes, all the extrava
gance and waste of the times. Everything is on
the rise, BUT LIMOS. There is not an article of
consumption but what is double the price now,
to what it was a year ago. What a man eats,
drinks and wears, are all heavily taxed. Tea,
coffee and sugar have gone up to startling,
fabulous prices. Almost even) , pound that is
purchased adds a penny to its market price, and
a penny more by its adulteration, to its actual
value. The garment that is to keep the wind
and the frost from the flesh of man, is taxed—
the stamp is on its texture, the tax on its color
—labor must pay fur the increase. The beef
and the coals on which it is broiled, are taxed.
The rain falls and t• . e grass grows as of yore,—it
costs no more to rear the fat omen—yet the beef
must be taxed before it finds its way down the
throats of the poor. The bowels of the earth,
like its burface, yield their inexhaustible pro
ducts and rich fruits, the same to-day that they
did five, ten, twenty years ago—yet they must
be taxed. And this is ail right. The fact and the
necessity of taxation must and do not arouse
our objections. What we pay in mon..y, to tha
support of the government, other men sire
giving in life and limb, in excruciating suffer
ing and horrible death. Therefore to grumble
or to resist the payment of a monetary sup
pert of the government at this dreadful cri
sis, would merit and receive the earnest
condemnation at the hands of loyal men.
But, while this support is freely contributed,
the government must look after the interests
of the laborer and mechanic, or these will be
starved or beggared by the speculator. All things
have gone up in the market but labor. eiecban
ici and laboring men in a few localities are at
tempting by "strikes," to raise the walks, but
such demonstrations are in violation of law.
' It is not lawful for laboring men to combine
and "strike" for wages. The courts, in some
oases, have decided that such combinations were
conspiracies to injure private business interests.
Therefore, the wages of labor must find in
crew e from some other influence beside those
of "strikes." Labor Malt be paid more remu
neratively, or the laborer and his family must
starve. In simple language, the necessities of
the times have reduced the condition of the
laborer to this simple strait. Economy will
not save bins, because the immense increase of
all the necessaries of life, and no increase in
his pay, the laborer has no right to anticipate any
other fate. The winter greets him with gaunt
famine ready to fold him in her arms. Who
eon suggest a remedy ? Who will start the in
crease in the pay of the laborer.
A. Yes". Atm, when Gen. Fremont was re
moved, the servile tory organs that claims to be
the sole exponent of Democracy, set up a great
howl of approbation. It Was right, they claimed,
and if the friends of Fremont dared to complain
they would be setting themselves up against the
government, and could consequently be re
garded as traitors. Fremont accepted his re
moval as the act of his superiors, with a manly
grace, while his friends did nothing more than
defend his valor, repeat their confidence, and
predict that time would vindicate his honor.
This was the course insisted upon by the very
journals that now scream so loudly against the
government for superceding McClellan. A di
rect issue is sought to be made with the Adminis
tration for doing that which the American peo
ple have been demanding for more than six
months. Bat McClellan's friends can make no
complaints on this score. He has had for fif
teen months command of our greatest army ; he
has had every chance to carry out his plans ;
he has done nothing effective; and the Presi
dent, who is and always has been his personal
friend, has removed him only because he could
no longer expect successful results from him.
"The whirligig of time brings in its revenges."
The journals which so bitterly abused General
Fremont at every step of his career in the West,
last year, were loud in their advance denuncia
tions of any one who should set up that Gene
ral against the Government. No one did so,
nor, we are sure, would Fremont for a moment
have suffered himself to be thus used. Nor,
we hope, will General McClellan. That he has
been thoroughly and honestly loyal is the
proudest boast of his friends ; and we have
reason to expect that he will check the unwise
ardor of unredecting admirers, and show him
self.tis obedient now as a
,man in his position
must be, to be a worthy citizen.

The deposition of King 0 tho by the revolu
tionists of Greece, is regarded by the New York
Evening Past as an event of more significance
than appears at the first view. The King has
reigned just thirty years, and with his fall the
Bavarian dynasty ends. The monarchy which
was established for him the Great Powers of
Europe he has lost through his own wiscond uct,
and he becomes a member of the large company
of fugitive princes, iu consequence of the sud
den and irresistible uprising of his own people.
On the 24th of October the King fled from
Athens, abdicating in favor of his brother Leo
pold ; but the revolutionists refused longer to
recognize the Bavarian dynasty, orgtnized a
provisional government, and convoked a na
tional assembly. This was the condition of af
fairs at the last advices—the nation Indepen
dent, its king driven into exile, a dynasty
overthrown after thirty years of arbitrary rule,
and the government disorganized and troubled.
The immediate result of this revolution will
be a scramble among the continental powers
for the crown which has dropped from the head
of Otho. Germany and Russia are peculiarly
interested in the solution of this problem ; the
former hoping for a restoration of the old dy
nasty, with its direct and indirect advantages ;
and the latter drawn towards Greece by the
hope of aggrandisement and the sympathy of a
religious bond. There are, however, rumors
that the , Greeks will try the experiment of es
tablishing a republic, hoping to found a free
system upon the ruins of the kingdom ; but of
this movement nothing of a definite character
is known. It is possible that Turkey may as
sume the right of interference in the affairs of
Greece, but this is hardly probable, for that
decayed nationjxists only by sufferance, and
has too many eremilits of discord and weakness
within herself to entitle her to a voice in the
disposal of kingdoms. If the Greeks attempt
to decide for themselves, they are likely to en•
counter serious impediments, and the result of
the struggle will be looked for with curious in

The Greatness of America as an
The greatness of America is a ?mitt revela
tion to Europe. With the North and South con
federated under the old Government, the United States
possessed a military power and an abundance of re
sources which her citizens, even in the excess of their
self complacency, never dreamed. But few minds
in Europe had any idea of the power of the
young giant in the Western World. One
or two of their public men, as Cavour
or Napoleon, might have apprehended, by
the force of their genius, the military mag
nitud•, of America. But it was generally a
dim sptculation in Europe. Our basis of mili
tary powers were frequently ridiculed by the English
press and pruned as traniatlantic bluster. But this
war has shown that even these boa•ta fell far
short of the reality. It has revealed to the
world an enormous power that overshadowed
whatever there is of military display in mod
ern history, and has amazed the most arrogant
nations of Europe.
Within eighteen months of this war, the Korth
and South have raised armies larger than those of the
first Napoleon; ironclad ,fleets have been Launched
capable of destroying the combined navies of England
and France ; two millions of men have been put in
the fold; and yet the internal system of the industry
of the country and the ordinary pursuits of peace
have been but tittle interrupted, unless from the ex
ceptional cause of the blockade of the Southern
seacoast. Had the North and South continued as
one nation there could scarcely have been any /onus
to the achievements of their military power. Eng
land could never have checked it. We could
have overrun the Continent, taken Canada in
the teeth of a combination of all the European
powers, and crushed England alone as an egg
shell under the hammer.
TEM .REf7)LOTION IN GREECE.
[From the Richmond Examiner, Nov. B.]
The bloody and unhappy revelation which
this war has made of enormous military re-
sources has naturally given to Europe, and
especially to England, an extraordinary inter
est in its continuation. Nothing could be
more contrary to the wishes and policy of
England than that the war should edil in re.
uniting the North and South and consolidating
and renewing in rivalry to her a military power
which is now wasted in internecine strife. That
the Union never shall be restored is a foregone
and settled conclusion with the British Govern
ment. It would not now hesitate for a moment
to recognize the South, unless firmly persuaded
of our ability and resolution to carry on the
war, and unless it had another object to gain
beside that of a permanent division in the
nationality and power of her old rival. That
object is the exhaustion of both North and
England proposes to effect the continuation
of this war, as far as possible, to the mutual
ruin of the two nations engaged in it, by stand
ing aside and trusting that, after vast expendi
tures of blood and waste of resources, the sepa
ration of the Union will be quite as surely ac
coraplished by the self devotion of the South as
by the less profitable mode of foreign interven
tion. To the advantagee she hopes to gain
from this separation she desired to add those
which she expects from loss and ruin to both
North and South in a long war. Her present
policy of neutrality with reference to the war is
founded in the confidence that the South is
able to achieve her independence, and that the
prolongation of hostilities does not risk her
In this unchristian and inhuman calculation,
England has rightly estimated the spirit and
resolution of the South. We are prepared to
win our independence with the great priers of
blood and suffering that England has named.
But we understand her in this matter. Behind
her meek of conscience and pharasaical preci

AHANDSOME HEAD OF HAIR is a crown
of glory. With proper care and culture
it will last as as a protection to the head as long
as the nails do to the fingers, or the eyelashes
to the eyes. STIIRLDIG'S AXI3IIOBLIL is the only
article yet discovered that will bring about the
desired results. It is a prepatation the result
of science and experiment ; the science point
ing out what was needed, and experiment find
ing the required properties in certain roots, bar Its,
and herbs. It has consumed a long time in its
preparation, has been tested by persons of most
undoubted reliability in this city, and is by them
pronounced perfect, and the only satisfactory
article, and is now offered to the public. The
proprietors, determined to give it the most
thorough tests, practical and chemical, and now
certain that it will make the hair grow luxuri
antly on Bald Heads, Preventing Grayness and
Baldness, Reinvigorating and Beautifying the
Hair, rendering it soft and glossy.
DB. STIIIIIMIG'S AMBROSIs is a stimulating,
oily extract of roots, barks, and herbs, and,
aside from its neatness, permanency, and gloss,
it is medically adapted to preserve and add to
the beauty of the hair. The only article yet dis
covered that mill Cure the Disease of the Scalp, and

This is to certify that about eighteen montha
ago, I commenced using STERLING'S AMBROSIA.
My hair was short, thin and rapidly falling out.
I had tried many Hair Tonics, Invigorators, &c.,
without receiving any benefit. Soon after using
the Ambrosia, my hair ceased falling out, and
commenced growing so rapidly as to astonish
me. Now my hair is thick, soft, and glossy,
and is five feet four inches in length when let
down, reaching to the floor. This wonderful
result I attribute solely to the use of STERLING'S
AMBROSIA, as since I commenced using it I have
applied nothing else to my hair.
