WHAT OF THE DEMOCRACY 7
Never since the old, blue-light federal leaders
sought to - pilot British stripe into Beaton harbor
with beacon lights displayed in appropriate
localities along the beach—never since then has,
there been a party so utterly at a loss for .tbe
means to perpetrate wrong against the govern
ment, as that which is called the Democratic .
party. With leaders who are utterly bankrupt—
men who have perjured their souls before high
Heaven, by the manner in which they betrayed
the trusts reposed in them by a free people—
nitre who are Identified with treason—who
opened the vaults of the country's treasure to
notorious thieves—who robbed the navy yards--
who despoiled the national arsenals of their
oontents—who corrupted and betrayed armies
and navies—with these men still as the leaders
of Democracy, the whole country is waiting
with wonder and impatience to hear what new
issues these demagogues will attempt—what
greater crime they will dare enact in order to
secant the success of their schemes. One fact
the loyal men of the land may depend upon.
The leaders of the Democratic party are deter
mined to frustrate the efforts of the National
Administration to conquer a peace, by induc
ing the rebels to come to some disgraceful terms
of compromise. This is no new idea with the
Democratic leaders. While the rebels were
spitting on the national authority in Congress,
Democrats in the same body, who were recog
nized as leaders of that party, were on their
knees lrerore the traitors, begging that any
oompromit.e might be proposed for the safety
of the Union, regardless whether that compro
mise brought disgrace to the government,
so that it perpetuated the power of the Demo
cratic parry. But even this was rejected. The
same feet which trampled on the Constitution
and laws, spurned tote dough-face Democracy of
the north. The same blow which was struck
at the' Union, was also aimed at everything
like political organization at the north, because
the conspiracy contemplated not merely a
breaking up of the Union, that the south
might reconstruct and bold forever the power
of the g verument, but the disbanding of all
political organizations, that the influence of
slavery and the aristocracy which it maintained,
might the better lord it over all labor.
The Democratic leaders of the north are doing
their share of this work now, as they have al
ways discharged the same duty, ever since the
upholders ot slavery entered into a conspiracy
to destroy or degrade free labor. It is the old
struggle for the same end, only that it is dis
guised in other issues. When the south nulli
fied —when free trade became the popular cry
in the slave states, we ha i its echoes in the
north, in every demagogue that sought to lead'
a clique or fulminate a lie. The people were
betrayed then as they are sought to be betrayed
now. Everywhei e the leaders of the Demo
cratic patty were in secret onclave, then, with
the advocat es of slavery and free trade, until
the conspiracy wart brought to its full devel
opment in the treachery of George M. Dallas,
when he cast his vote against the labor, the
intelligence and the enterprise of the land. That
act was as much a step in the progress of trea
son, as was Stuart's invasion ot Pennsylvania,
and when the chain of rebellion is followed,
link by link, it will be found that the Demo
cratic leaders of the free states have been di
rectly and unmistakably identified with every
stepof the traitors. We found James Buchanan ,
while President, and his followers in Congress,
pursuing the same course, act by act, word for
word, until bloody treason, the responsibility
and the expense of rebellion, the political sin
and the suffering of the crisis, are as much to
be attributed to the Democratic leaders as is
the work of death along the Potomac to be
charge.' to the atrocities of traitors
—And yet in the face of history, in the gloom
of the present crisis, with the full effect of their
bloody work visible on all that heretofore con•
tributed to the happiness, the glory and the
success of the American people, the most poi
sonous of the Democratic organs are urging
their leaders to speak out. Speak out for what ?
Have they not already urged the south to all
that is dastardly and ungrateful ? Have
they not already accomplished by their speech
all that is Mega and unholy ? But doubtless
like all great criminals against mankind, the
originators and abettors of rebellion, after
deeming themselves successful in their crimes
against society and the government, will next
"speak out" against God. Thus it has ever
been with men who struggle for the ascendancy
of a class. Building their hopes on what they
deem their own superiority, they end in their
ruin by denying God in their ambition. This
is now the tendency of the great Democratic
rebellion for slavery. This is Irma, we may
expect to hear uttered as they gather further
courage to "speak out," because there is but a
narrow limit dividing treason against freedom
from infidelity to God I
Tin Punic Cum —At the commencement
of this war the 7.30 loan was subscribed for at
par by the banks, as a matter of patriotism.
Now, Secretary Chaim is able to sell the same
loan at more than three per cent. premium, and
the biddinga are large for more. The public
credit has not only been sustained, but is riving
higher, under all the difficulties of the times:
Yet in the face of these facts, the doughface
opponents of the government in the loyal
states, , are continually frightening the people
with stories of bankruptcy and ruined credit.
Anything:With these wretches, to embarram the
FUTURE MILITARY NERDS.
The lesson , which the loyal people of the
north are now learning, is, that a nation of
freeman should know howl tn.defend their lib
; but if
the task and mural be well committed, the
advantages thereof Wlll become apparent ind
permanent. Never since their independence
was acknowledged, have the United States been
on a war looting until the pedant rebellion.
Dining the last war with Great Britain, an
approximation was made therefor, and the little
pocket contest with Mexico, in later years,
brought a few courageous spirits to the surface ;
but viewed from our present standpoint, these
were as nothing, except in the results. They
sothied, however, to give us an overweening
confidence, which, after the lapse of years, well
nigh proved fatal to our institutions, and the
integrity of the Republic. This experience
should not allowed to pass out of memory,
without leaving upon our minds its most whole
We are not among those who are advocates
of the costly establishment of a standing army.
Such an immense war power has not, hereto
fore, appeared necessary In times of peace,
nor will it be so when the present rebellion
shall have been decided. ' Indeed it may be
stated as a principle that the more intelligent a
people, the less necessity of an army to preserve
the institutions under which they live and
prosper. Appreciating their danger when
threatened, they are ever ready, manfully to
spring forward•. in self-defence, and quick to
learn.the art of war. A perpetual war footing
is not, therefore, the normal condition of an
enlightened Republic. And yet there is an
economical preparedness which may be effected
without infringing upon the principle above
stated. We refer to a well-established and
thoroughly organized State . Militia.
Pennsylvaniahaaa border, no matter whether
the war is ended in a month berme, which must
be defended as long as the motive for rebellion
is suffered to grow by permitting slavery to be
extended and increased. If this war is ended
withouta complete understanding that the Influ
ences of slavery &reale° ended, it will be useless
to talk of a permanent peace, because the ad
vocates of slavery, at the very first favorable
opportunity, will take up arms against the
government, and again attempt its overthrow
and destruction. Therefore the free and loyal
states are bound to make some pr, vision for the
future. The people themselves will learn the
necessity of this, if they have not fully learned
it already: This preparation need not consist
of standing armies, but it must be made up of
that knowledge of the science of war and the
sucret of defence; which will prove amply ade
quate to our future protection from future re
bellion. The free states may satire ready to
receive therebellious states back into the Union.
In fact this is the object of the war. To bring
back the, revelled states, either on the argu
ment of the duties which each state owes to the
national government, or by the force which lies
in the authority of the gavethinent, when it
arms for its own defence and preeervation.
Beyond these Mons for all the loyal states
at once to organise a proper militia force, are
others which must be obvious to every practi
rod, observing man. Our relations with Eu
rope are such that a rupture may at any mo•
ment occur. We have no friends in En
Europe, except such as are for peace on account
of consaientous scruples against war. Indeed
the freemen of this land, acting for themselves
as friends of the National Government, have
no enconragehient to rely , on any friendship
except that with which their own hearts beat
for the cause of freedom. It is their duty to
arm against the world, and always to be prepar
ed for every enemy from all quarters.
DANIEL WEBSTER ON DISUNION.
The Patriot this morning makes a great dis
play of a garbled extract from a speech of
Daniel. Webster on emancipation. When
Webster opposed the emancipation of the
slaves of the south, it was on the right which
one state might claim of interfering with the in.
sitittitione of another, and not as the right of the
national government to enforce an act of
emancipation, constitutionally passed, for its
own preservation.- Were Webster living, he
would support emancipation as one of the ne
cessities of saving the Union which he so bug
loved and so ably defended. ete an offset to
the Patriot's attempt to mislead the public In
reference to the sentiments of Webster, we
quote an extract from one -of his speeches, re
lating to an attempt to dissolve the Union:
"If the Union were to be broken up , by nul
lification, separation or Secession, or any event
whatsoever of equally repulsive name , and
character, chaos woultooms again, and where all is
now light, and joy, and glade:wee, there would
be spread over us a darkness, like that of Ere
bus. Yee, gentlemen, I have little patience
with those who talk flippantly of Secession and
disunion ; they do not anew to me to understand of
whinthey goeak, nor to haws the least idea of its con
(arsenate. Suppose this Union were dissolved
to-day, where should we be to-morrow ? I
think a state of things would arise In which I
should feel disposed to take shelter in the cav
erns of the mountains, or seek some other
place of obscurity in which I should not wit
ness the degrmlation and ruin of the, country,
Bony anticipation of such en smug preemie a gloomy
and horribiepicturs." After further remarks in
the same general strain, he continued "The
support of the Union is a great practical sub
ject, involving the prosperity and glory of the whole
country, and affecting the prosperity of every indi
vidual in it. We ought to take a keys and compre
hensive Mao of it, to look to *avast moults and to the
consequences which would AM from its overthrow."
GEN X CLEBNAND'B ESPEDI7ION.
The /Wiwi: Journal says that there is. much
inquiry among its exchanges in reference to
the proposed , expedition against Vicksburg,
and not a 1101 e curiosity iv to the whereabouts
of Gen. McGlernand, who is expected to coin
mind it. Gen. MaCiernand is in Springfield,
111., busily engaged in priipariog to put the
expedition in motion. In the meantime, we
have reason to believe that troops !Mended for
it are concentrating at various points from
Cairo to Memphis. The country may rest as
anredthat the Mississippi expedition is assuming
definite proportions, and that it will soon be
ready to move. The journal farther. Nays
that it does not feel authorized to state what
progress Is being made in preparation' for the
hoortetit movement more definitely.

The Rebels Fortifying Port Hudson
Protection of the New Salt Works
The Democrat has information'that the rebels
are now busy fortifying Port Hudson, 150
talks above New Orleans. The same engineer
who laid out the works at Vicksburg, has just
completed the plans of the fortifications at
Port Hudson. Ten or twelve guns are now in
position, and in two weeks from the present
time Port Hudson will be as strong as picks•
burg, and prove a serious bar to the ascent of
Admiral Farragut's fleet.
'The rebels are now running steamboats from
port Hudson to Lake Providence, a distance of
More than 800 miles, and are also running boats
on Red river, bringing immense supplies of
cattle from Texas, and large quantities of salt
from the new salt works on the Red river,
about 50 miles above its month. It is stated
that these works produce 10,000 bushels daily,
all of which is sent east via Vicksburg.
One object of the fortifications at Port Hud
son is to prevent the federal forces reaching
these salt works.
General Schofield and Staff arrived here last
night. The General's health, though not
fully restored, is rapidly improving.

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. STABLING'S Amintosta 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 perlect, 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.
Da. Samuel's Arreaosie 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 yd dis
covered that will Cure the Disease of the Scalp, and
cause the flair to Grow.
This is to certify that about eighteen months
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
reaching to the floor. This wonderful
result I attribute solely to the use of STERLING'S
Ammons, as since I commenced using It I have
applied nothing else to my hair.
