THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE FOR FRESIMINT,
FOR THE ADIENDUNT OF TEE CONSTITUTION
SOLDIERS' RIGHT TO VOTE.
FRIDAY EVENING, RAY 27, 1864.
The Monroe Doctrine.
Sensible men in all parts of the free States
—business men in the commercial cities, who
have immense wealth afloat upon the waters
of the world—in,fact i every prudent man; in
the country, has been utterly disgusted of
late, with the efforts of certain men in Con
gress to make an issue with the, powers of
Europe, on what is called the Monroe doc
trine. The fact that France is interposing to
foist a European prince on the throne of
Mexico, has stirred up the temper of a clique
inCengress, which has thus far been able to
carry the House with its movements—move
ments more fraught with danger to the peace
and perpetuity of the Union than is the
rebellion of the slaveholders. We can
meet the slaveholders, and establish peace
by the force of arms: Can we oppose all Eu
rope? Are we in a condition to provoke the
already rankling hate, and 'evil disposed re-
garde of the tyrants of the world? These are
questions which consume the serious atten
tion of the business men who furnish thema
terial resources of the war, and by the masses
who supply the muscle. In the judgment of
these parties, a present war with the most in
significant power in Europe, would be death
to the. American people.' A war with any of
the allies of the old world would involve us
in'a struggle such as we could not maintain,
and beneath which the name and the people
of the United States would sink never to rise
again. These facts are appreciated by the
People, if they are not'admitted by members
of Congress. When the proper time comes,
those who bear the brunt of every fight, will
give direction to- the policy of the Govern
ment on the Monroe doctrine. For the pre
sent, the people believe in the prudence and
the wisdom of the Administration on this sub
ject. Hence, they cannot but view with seri
ous apprehensions, the hot haste with
which a difficulty is pressed with Eu
rope. Such a war would, swamp our
commerce from every sea—it would end our
intercourse with governments which are now
friendly—it would invite assaults upon our
coast—it'would temPt, a thousand - where now
dhly one effort is made to run the blockade,
and it would surround us with enemies like a
wall of fire. These are the practical results
of what must follow thest-bombastic proceed'
ings on the subject of the Monroe, doctrine.
Indeed, the statesmen of the world can only
regard such proceedings as mere braggadocia,
simply because every practical statesman in
Europe is well aware that we have a "big
jOb" on hand in crushing the slaveholders' re
bellion. Untrammelled and unburdened by
foreign difficulties, we can crush the slei'Ve
holders' rebellion as. well as the institution of
slavery. But if we provoke additional trouble
and throw down the gauntlet to the world
there is a possibility of us all becoming
We write plainly on this subject because
We have' no patience , with that indiscretion
which looks like enmity to the real interests
of the Government ' We have no confidence
in the patriotism of those who would conduct
the Government into other troubles while it is
'nobly struggling to get rid of that of rebel-
Hence we boldly declare that the mo
tives of those who are thus agitating the Mon
roe doctrine are most questionable—so ques
tionable, indeed, its to place them under the
suspicion of every true lover. of the Union in
'rho Union men of Cambria county met in
Convention at Ebensburg, on the 23d inst.,
and, nominated the following ticket:
Congres, A. A. Barker, of Ebensburg; (sub
ject to decision of Congressional Conference.)
Assembly, Evan Roberts; Sheriff, F. M. Flans'gan; Commissioner, Abraham Good; Poor
House Director, Geo. Settlemoyer; Auditor,
Resolutions in favor of the nomination and
election of Abraham Lincoln; endorsing the
policy of• crushing rebellion by destroying its
sources of strength; and approving of the
amendment to the Conititution enfranchising
the soldier were unanimously passed. Messrs.
Isaae E. Chandler, H. H. Jeffreys and John
M. Brown were appointed Conferees to meet
-like Conferees from Blair, Huntingdon and
counties, at Tyrone city, on Tuesday,
Slat inst.,' to select a delegate to represent
this Congressional district in ::the National
Convention: : ••• ,
trzsipx.mcE company in
Massachusetts, every member of which paid
sixty . dollars, with the promise that if he was
drafted and accepted
,he should have three
hundred dollars for exem ption, or as pocket
money in case he :decided to' go, has had
only eight of its one hundred and forty-three
members drafted thus far, so that the fund
now stands credited Sixty-one hundred and
eighty dollars. Exemptions and - future drafts
will probably change the figures, but there is
a good margin for the fund.
KABL BLIND, 'the friend of Garribaldi, -writes
thf),Missouri Westliche Post: —"Garribaldi told
me himself that Napoleon's influence decided
the English Government to take this step;"
e.l induce , him'
to leave the country. To
one "of my friends Garibaldi said:—"f. am
,driven out of England by Louis Napoleon."
Ir is a suggestive fact that since the death
-of *onawall Jackson nothing but misfortunes
' have aUended the =IV of General lee:
- IT IS BXLIXTIOD that Congress 76:B1,mbourn
on the 15th of 'June.'r ,
A Ceitstis la 1865
The proposition that a census of the popu
lation and a return of their resources shall be
made in 18G5, is a good one and worthy of at
tention. A great war producing a debt of cor
responding magnitude, compels an investiga
tion of our affairs in such a way that the fi
nancial position of the country can be de
rived from data unimpeachably correct. The
Government should know the exact wealth
upon which to impose taxes rind the state of
the national balance sheet when the effgets of
great convulsions are being felt in all their
severity. This is absolutely necessary for an
equitable adjustment of the burdens of war.
The census of 1860 presented a picture of
prosperity never equaled in any land upon
which the sun shines in his course around the
earth. The demon of War, at the bidding of
pestilent traitors, spread his wings oveithis
fair scene of happiness, and deolation reigns
supreme over every territory where the con
flict has been Carried. The energies of the
race will, on the establishment of peace, soon
repair the inroads on the power of the com
monwealth and the comfort of the people,
and if the details of the losses and the wants ,
of each section are made known by means of
official census tables, the work of supplying
deficiencies will be systeinatized and more
easily completed. A census in 1865 will show
the changes of the six years which have
elapsed since 1859, and will furnish many facts
worthy of the attention and study of the po
litical economist.of our times.
A Life-like Portrait of a Copperhead
The following pen and ink sketch is a life
like portrait of one of the Copperhead leaders,
in Congress, the - master of such men as our
Congressman Miller. It is the best picturre of
Fernando Wood ever drawn: •
For sleekness and apparent respectability
of deportment, Fer9ando Wood is the gem
of the Opposition side of the House. Seen
from the gallery he• looks like a well-to-do
Methodist minister. He is tall and long
waisted and straight, and wears his sleek
coat buttoned up to within a few inches of
a very white collar,' which makes hip team
taller and longer-waisted and straighter still
and leaves a clerical spareness of a very white
bosom. His face latitudinally and longitudi,
nally considered, is ample, but has the effect
of length and sleekness. His hair is long and
black, and sleek, and looks a little wiggish.
He walks with an erect, measured, meditative
tread; has a stately nonehalant way of writing
when loyal members speak, and a benign way
of listening when any of his own ,clan begin
to relieve themselves.
OUR DEJECTED FELLOW-CrrizEss.— There
is a cheerless spirit of lamentation which peri
odically takes possession of the Peace, party.
The doleful dejection which follows the slight-.
est success of the Union army is not at all
indicative of that serenity and Christian-like
resignation which should temper the sorrows
of the shorn lambs of the Copperheactfaith.
While the schismatic and heterodox of the,
War party are sportive with exaltation_ at the
achievements of the soldiers in'- the . field, .a
grief that will not be, comforted, settles on the
hearth of their opponents. They peacefully
cover themselves with sackcloth sand "ashes,
and with ghastly grie,f mourn over the losses
which they exaggerate • with funeral energy.
Like the paid mourners at funerals, they give
the highest honors to those despondent parti
sans whose superabundance Of woe approaches
the nearest to total despair. They the indeed
the "monumental sufferers" of the nineteenth
century. However, violence of .sadness may
exhaust itself, and that amount of misery
which if properly directed, would make them
gloomy during the natural term of life ; may
be used up in l single season.

TiIESE elegant preparations combine the
most desirable cleansing and astringent qualities.
They render the Gums hard and healthy; neutralize the
acid secretions of the mouth, (thereby removing the
prime Car= of decay.) By their detersive properties they
preserve the natural' cotor of the Teeth, without in the
least degree injuring the enamel, while they impart to
the breath a fragrancepeculiarly aromatic and pleasant.—
In fact they are THE BEST ARTICLES in use for the pur
poses named, as a fair trial will fully , demonte, and
as has been abundantly proved by their extensi vesale in
this community during the last 14 years; and which will
be readily testified to by many who have 'repeatedly
urged the Proprietor to still farther extend their sole and
usefulness. They are warranted to be free from. those
destructive acids which so'frequently contaminate many
of the preparations of the present day.' Prepared and sold
