A WORD WILY OUR PATRONS.
The newspaper fraternity are more or less
exercised at the sudden rise of printing mate
rials, principally paper, which has within a few
weeks risen nearly fifty per cent., and the United
States tax. This will press unusually hard up
on some of us. The rise in material all will
feel, but the tax will affect only the DAILY
TILLGRAPH, as it alone, in this city, has a circu
lation over two thousand. With these addi
tional burdens upon us in the rise of material
and the tax upon subscripi ion and advertising,
we hope our subscribers and advertisers will cx
ercis•. some readiness to be prompt in their pay
m ate. OiVe do not mean to raise the price to
subscribers or advertisers, as some have pre
pared, above our advertised rates, but we shall
expect all to come up promptly to out terms.
We believe both subscribers and advertisers get
full value for every cent they pay us. Sub
scribers will bear in mind that we pays tax on
them, and we must have them pay us. It is
rather an expensive luxury for us, to furnish
our paper for nothing and pry tax on them be
sides, and to be candid, we du nut mean to do
it. 'there is no reason for any subscribers put
ting us to the additional expense of sending a
collector after them.
ILTE ONLY PATB TO PEACE.
The Washington Daily Morning Chronicle ad
mits that at last all sides seem to agree that
the only path to peace is through the bloody
waste of war. The strongest alone can succeed
It is not diplomacy, but strength and the
sword, which can adjust this stupendous pro
blem, The European nations, England chiefly,
now see this thing as we present it. The rebels
baldly refuse to accept any other umpire but
that offered by the victor on the battle-field ;
and the loyal people of the United States hav
ing so much to lose, and having offended the
seceders and traitors so little—indeed in no one
wrong that can ever be respectably charged,
not to say decently proved—these same loyal
people will never consent to compromise or
baiter away any one of the franchises, great or
small, which attach to a Government based
upon the popular voice, and for nearly eighty
years the source of unending blessings to all
the hunted races of men. There is therefore a
sort of unanimity on this question among those
directly interested. The seceding and adheting
states desire peace s; and finally see there is oily
one way to achieve it. It is true that the ag
gressied party would gladly consent to adjust
ment on the basis of a recognition of their trea
son—a condition which is indignantly rejected
by the other and unoffending party, which, hi
turn, offers as its preliminary to peace, submis
sion to the Federal authority; Bather . ' than
this, say the leaders of the rebellion, come pes
thence and famine and th- thirsty sword. The
day for describing the horrors of disunion has
passed. They are felt broil men in the hor
rors of secession, and WO figla• against theffriu
becguse we know they must be more fearful
than the last. If, whether through the forci
bli remedy of Fernando Wood or John Van,
Buren, or if ttni next Presidential election came
off to-morrow instead of two years hooce, Mara,
ham Lincoln should be superseded in the Presi
dency, the new Federal Executive would be
compelled to wage this war for the restoration
of the Union and the punishment Of the rebel
n with resistless determination to the bitter
end. So that the path to peace and to a restot.
ration of the Union is either through the bloody
waste of war, or by means of that subinissien
to the Federal Government which must result
when the southern people are convinced that
the President is determined to prosecute it un
compromisingly to the close.
A TRICE OF TEE ENEMY
It is nnv positively asserted that the iron
clad fleet which is being built in England, for
tho traitors in this country, cannot possibly, be
ready for use on our coast in lea the* Six
months. It is given ass reason for the recent
exaggerated : accounts of , this fleet of rebel
Iron-clads, that the object was to draw the
attention of the federal from
taro well arranged plans to attack the cities on ]
the southern coast and to operate in southern,
inland waters. If the federal government can
be paniciaed in regard to anticipated, attacks
from a rebel fleet on Boston, New York, Phila
delphia, and other important northern ports;,
the hope is that the iron -clads, which were tel
binged on the expedition fitting out‘to 'attack
the, senthern coast, would be retained to defend
and protect the ports named. In this the
rebels will be mistaken. The fleet of which
they boast as being in course of construction in
England, cannot be finished in time to be used
the coming winter, for the 'remain that the
British Government is consuming , `All the ma
terial for such vessels which can
for some time, and of course until John Bull is
served, Jeff. Davis must welt patiently iOr his
piratical craft. In the meantime our fron
ds& will operate in southern waters, taking,
possession of southern rivers, and hermetically
sealing southern ports. And whenithe• Anglo
rebel iron-clads are ready to attack what to,
the English and the rebels are eupposed to itEkl
the defenceless ports of the north; they will be,
received with a welcome on which they do net
calculate. And thus the tricks 'and designed
the enemy will be exposed and frustrated -

THE LEGISLATION THAT IS TO COME.
The proceedings of the approaching short ses
sion of Congress, and the annual meeting of the
Legislature, will have a lasting influence on the
career and fortune of the country. Fortunately
for the people, the war party of the country
dominates in Congress, so that even in a short
session all can be done that may be necessary to
accomplish the.final and complete overthrow of
the rebellion. Fortunately, too, the intervening
apace betieen the adjournment Of the present
and the meeting of the next Congress, will
afford the Administration ample time to finish
the war ; and even if the struggle should be
prolonged until the meeting of the nest Con
gress, the power in that body will be with the
loyalmen who are to participate in Its legisla
tion. One important fact must always be kept
in view-by those:who remain at home, during
the great struggles for the. government, but
who are nevertheless sincerely devoted to its
perpetuity. It is this the influence which is
in sympathy with the traitors is far more dan
gerous than the traitors themselves, and it is
this influence which must be met, battled with
and beat down in the coming legislation of the
country. With our advantages, this can be ac
complished, if loyal men are true to themselves.
What we want is union, harmony, the good
understanding that should animate men really
desirous of working out their country's salva
tion, and the result cannot but be satisfactory
to loyal men, and therefore beneficial to the
country. For instance, in the Legislature that
is to meet in a few weeks, our opponents will
assemble with as many objects in view as they
have dogmas to serve. Every man elected on
the Democratic ticket, who was not solemnly
and directly pledged to support the war, to
sustain the National Administration in putting
down rthellion, will go into the Legislature
with some personal purpose to promote—some
ambitious demagogue to serve, or tome revenge
to gratify. In meeting such an influence as
this, our friends have only to be united. We
have but one object in view: Our Country I Be
fore this all private interests, all personal
schemes, all party purposes must give way. For
'this we must and will be united. Our union
will challenge the support and the confidence
of the loyal men whom the Democracy in a mis
take, have elected as Representatives, so that
when results are compared and the facts are
fully developed, the state will find itself con
trolled by a Legislature essentially loyal in all
that concerns the success of the struggle for the
Union and for peace.
The sentiments of Pennsylvania and of the
Union, indicate that the people are devotedly
attached to the Union. In no connection have
these sentiments been mote fairly developed
than in the election of representatives both to
the Legislature and to Congress. It matters
not to' us who wes elected, the issue was inva
riably one of loyalty ; and on this issue every
man elected hives his succese ß . Where tbe
Democracy succeeded, they won their success by
positive pledges of devotion to the country—
of a high regard for loyalty—of a strenuous de
termination to push on the war to such a ter,.
urination as will forever preserve this country
from a like convulsion and danger. While
this was the eerie, however, we do not believe
that all the Democratic candidates thus elected
will be faithful to their pledges. • Stich a hope
in the honor" of Democracy, would be idle
and ridiculous. But while we dare not look
for snob general honesty among the successful
men of that party, there will be left that
bonor and patriotism among individuals which
will wofully deceive the desperate men of the
same band. :Phe patriotic men of the Demo
envie party, will be t r ue to the pledges on
Which they were elected, and thus will
deceive the cliques .who are now calculi

try., It will leave the country in the
hands of its. true friends, . It will leave the
Democratic leaders just *hat they now ire, a
minority of d ' esper'ate and determined enemies
of the country, , capable only of working out
their own damnation as -they fail in working
out the destnictinn 'Of • the nation. But let
.it be remeintiered tilietAl this is dependeint on
the union and harmony of the loy.al mom •ef
the country. It depends upon the good un
derstanding which is to . prevail among our
friends both inthe coming Legislature and the
" orngress that is to succeed the present body.
We have the principle to unite us. Time must
prove whether we possess the purpose and t h e
resolution to effect that union

Impottant Naval Preparations,
Probability of an Attack upon Charleston
Plans for '
Capturing Rebel Ports•
[Special Despatch to Me Evening Post.]
It is believed here that an attack upon
Charleston will not be long postponed. The
rebels have been making preparations for the
.attack for several weeks, and if they are to be
believed, will not surrender the city simply be
cause it may be at the mercy of one of our iron
dads. The inhabitants will be ordered to leave,
and the'town, if necessary, will be consigned to
flames rather than be surrendered. So far as I
san learn, both army and navy desire that the
rebels should take precisely this , course, feeling
that it would be fit and proper that this trea
sonable city should be destroyed.
The preparations for attack are so perfect
that there can be no doubt whatever that one
or more iren•clads will succeed in app
'the town, at least within shelling distance.
Fears have been expressed that the Navy
Department would turn aside from its plans of
attack upon the rebel ports because of the alarm
'log reports from England in reference to the
rebel iron clad fleet said to be constructing
there, but Mr. Welles will not delay fora single
day any of his projected naval attacks upon
,rebel towns because of any foreign news recent
ly received. The loyal Atlantic cities will be
Abundantly defended, but none of the ironicbsdi
destined for Charleston or Mobile, or any (Muir
rebel city, will be detained.
The work of preparation has been slow, such
are its gigantic proportions; but it is believed
by our naval authorities here that the results
will abundantly justify the means, and will
Compensite for the delays. Those results are
almast within reach now, and but a few weeks,
'and possibly days, - will pass away before thril
'ling news from the southern coast will startle

In the Name and by the Authority
COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA•
ANDREW G. CURTIN,
Governor of the said Commonwealth,
WHERBAS, I have received authentic informa
tion that First Lieutenant Josiah Baughman of
Compai y D, 138th Regiment, Pennsylvania
Volunteers, in the service of the United States,
whilst endeavoring to arrest a deserter from his
company named Henry Rowland, near Chaney
%dile, Southampton township, Bedford county,
in this State, was on the eleventh day of the pre
sent montr shot by the said deserter and has
since died from the wounds so inflicted : AND
WILBAXAS, all efforts for the arrest of the said
Henry Rowland have so far proved ineffectual ;
AND Wnzs.zes, this high-handed outrage re
sulting in the death of a brave and faithful
officer, in the performance of his duty, calls for
condign and speedy retribution and makes it
incumbent upon the State to extend her aid in
securing a vindication of the laws, and certain
punishment as a terror to evil doers; now, there
fore, I, ANDREW G. Comm, Governor of the said
Commonwealth, do issue this, my proclama
tion, hereby offering a reward of
FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS,
tio any person or persons, who shall take and
deliver up for trial, the murderer of the said
Lieutenant Josiah Baughman, to be paid upon
the conviction of the criminal. And Ido here
by invoke the vigilant and active efforts of all
officers of justice, and all good citizens, in
securing the apprehension of the murderer.
Given under my hand and the Great Seal of the
State, at Harrisburg, this eighteenth day of
November, in the year of our Loid, one thou
sand eight hundred and sixty-two, and of
the Commonwealth the eighty-seventh.

FOR THE HAIR.
AHANDSOME HEAD OF HAIR is a crown
of glory. With proper care 'and culture
it will last as a protection to the head as-long
as the nails do to the fingers, or the eyelashes
to the eyes. Srsatma's Amsaosia is the only
article yet discovered that will bring about the
desired results. It is a preparation the result
of Feience and experiment ; the science point
ing out what was needed, and experiment find
ing the required properties in certain roots, barks,
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.
Srantmo:s AXBROBIA 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 will Cure the Disease of the .Scalp, and
cause the Bair to Grow.
This is to certify that about eighteen months
1 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
Amorous, as since I commenced using it I have
applied nothing else to my hair.
