TIMMY EVENING. SEPTEMBER 13, IS6I
The steady uprising, and splendid charac
ter of the recruits now being pushed forward
by the Government to reinforce Gen. Grant,
indicates that he is now or will be in a short
time, ready for a grand forward movement.
That movement will involve a battle of mo
mentous import. It may, be even now raging.
It cannot be postponed for many days. And
as that struggle terminates, so will be decided
the existence of the confederacy—the force of
the rebellion longer to maintain its belliger
erent front—the attitude of the treason-sym
pathizer • in the free_ States successfully to
minister aid and encouragement to traitors—
the ability of the Government to cope with
and conquer its most mortal enemy I May
God give the victory to the right. General
Grant, while he contends with armed traitors,
will also, by the results he may achieve, wield
a mighty influence in the political campaign
in the free States. The first great battle of
the Presidential contest will then be fought
by Grant and' his brave followers. If he is
victorious we 4 annot fail of triumph. If he is
defeated, God help us all!
The Democracy With Their "Caps in
On the 28th of May, 1861, within a few days
of two months after the firing upon Fort Sum
ter by the troops at Charleston under Beaure:
Bard, the Richmond Whig made use of the
following characteristic language in reference
to the people of the free States:
"We must bring these enfranchised slaves
back to their true condition. '1 hey have long
very properly louktd upon themselves as our
social 'antlers .as our serfs; their mean, nig
gardly lives, their low, vulgar and sordid oc
capacious, have ground this conviction into
Then, after speaking of the Northern deter
mination to put down the rebellion, and say
ing that "their uprising has all the character
of a, ferocious servile insurrection," the editor
concludes that the war "will enable us to re
store them to their n , rural vassal ge, and teach
th m that 'cap in hand' is the proper attitude of
the servant before his mis s.
—Where ale the copperheads now? Stand
ing with cap , n ha d, ready to bow their necks
to the h els qf 1w slat, -dr.ving traitors. STAND
ING, as it were, IN THE PRESENCE OP OUR VIC-
TOVOUS AB.MIEEI, WITH THE FLAG Or THE STABS
AND STRIPES FLOATING IN TRIUMPH OVER NEAR
FOUR FIFTHS OF
, THE TERRITORY LATELY HELD
BY THE TRAITORS, BEGGING FOR PEACE
FRO.II A BEATEN ENE .11Y ! And thus the
dough-face Democracy end their career. It
seems that it was appointed to them by a
great God. But God uercr lutoodua U tne
independent white man of the North should
stand with cap in hand before the slave mas
ters and barterers of t'ne South. The coming
election will eruihit what God designed, as
7 ' , ipurely as the late victories over treason have
'illastrated His espousal of our cause.
Trouble Among the Democracy in the
XVth Cong eseional District.
The Democracy of the XVth Congressional
District are rent in twain. The Chicago plat
form, and MeClellan's letter of acceptance,
were too mach for the cohesive power of that
organization. The peace men with their white
flags took possession of the platform, while
the war Democracy, disgusted with the hy
pocrisy of the old leaders, repudiate this
enunciation of dogmas, and now stand aloot
from the men who have the organization of
that party in their hands. A. J. Glosshreinter
is the representative man of the peace wing
of the Democratic party in that district, and
has accordingly been nominated for Congress.
Those who sympathize with treason, and who
ardently desire the success of the rebel cause,
could vote for no better man than Crlossbren
ner, because he cherishes no feeling so fer
vently as that which animates him for sla
very, secession, the South, and Southern inde
pendence. He is the best type of a Northern
dough-face this side of Mason A: Dixon's line.
Tile war Democracy have nominated Ron.
Joseph Bally, who now represents the XVth
District, as a candidate for re-election. Mr.
Bally, while still clieging to some of the here
sies of Democracy, is still au ardent and
faithful supporter of the Government against
treason and secession. The very fact that
the soldiers in Camp Couch, citizens of his
district, have nominated him us their cauui
date, shows the status of the man in loyal and
brave estimation. Between Glosebrenner and
Bally, loyal men in the XVth Congressional
District need not pause lung to decide whom
they will support. Oue is the friend, the other
the enemy of his country.
The Electoral Vote
The number of electoral votes to be cast
next fall, hie tiding that of West Virginia, and
owning as per Vote of Congress, those of the
seceded buttes, which are said to have been
restored to the Union, is 231. They are ap
portioned as follow's:

Tax copperheads call President Lincoln "a

tined to enforce; he draft in September. It

_called na coward." Their
ter a s boususe.ll6 - hap .3gfren the thoughtful
phopXa atioh ' a striking - proof of the sternly pa
triOttO bit/4V of Mg character.
The Chicago platform declares that the war
must immediately cease—that the troops of
the Federal Government must at once ]ay
down their arms—that the territory wrested
from the insurgents must be given up—and
that the Government must offer terms of peace
to the rebeli
Now hear what Jefferson Davis, chief trai
tor, says on the same subject. The destruction
of the Southern traitor was made before the
Chicago Convention of traitor sympathizers
met, and hence it is fair to presume that when
the Chicago platform - was erected it was for
the purpose of offering terms of peace on the
basis prescribed by the rebels. Here is what
Jeff. Davis declares:
“Wa ABS FIGHTING FOR INDEPENDENCE.
AND T.VAT OR ESTERMINAT/ON WE WILL HAVE."
"WE WILL GOVERN OURSELVES. WE WILL
DO rr. IF WE HAVE TO SEE EVERY SOUTHERN
PLANTATION BACKED, AND EVERY. SOUTHERN CITY
'SAY TO KB. -LINCOLN, FROM ME, THAT I SHALL
AT ANY TIME BR PLEASED TO RECEIVE PROPOSALS
FOR PEACE ON THE BASIS or OUR INDEPEND
ENCE. IT WILL BE USELESS TO APPROACH ME
WITH ANY OTELEtt."—Jffeson Davis.
This, then, constitutes the issue, and against
this all true loyal men are called to contend.
The peace which the Democracy offer to trai-
tors, is that which recognizes Southern &de
pendence, payment of the rebel war debt, per
manent division of the Union, and the future
constant danger of border warfare. To this .
feast of blood, rapine, fire and death, the free
white men of the whole country are now in
vited by the peace Democracy of the North.
If an armistice is made we must recall our
armies and navy, so that by so doing we shall
achieve the following brilliant results:
We abandon Baltimore, Norfolk, New Or
leans Alexandria, Newborn, Port Royal, Pea
sacola, all the forts along the coast., and every
position there occupied by our forces.
We thus give up Virginia, Maryland. North
and South Carolbia, Georgia, Florida, Ala
bama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Louisiana.
We thereby render useless the costly expe
ditious under Butler, Burnside, Dupont,, Far
We raise the blockade which we have per
fected at such an immense expenditure of
blood and treasure; we enable the South. to
export all her cotton and tobacco to furnish
herself with as much supplies from abroad as
she may need, and to import a whole new
iron-clad navy from England and France, as
well as money to carry on the war for an in
We abandon the valley of the Mississippi,
giving up Vicksburg, Memphis and St. Louis,
end surrendering to the enemy the • States of
Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky and Missouri,
enabling the enemy to advance their 4mies
to the frontiers of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
We make the southern boundary of Penn:
sylvania the boundary of the united States,
ramuuat capital - eita-v.wl. aprl
We abandon to the tender mercies of the
rebels all the Southern UnioU families who
have embraced our cause in the conquered
districts, and have taken the oath or all6gi
ance, so that they will have to abandon their
homes and lose all their possessions.
We, in fact, give t • the rebels more , ground
than they have had at any.period of the war,
a better beginning for a new, contest, and a
prestige which it would be almost impossible
Titz "Wm= BOYB."—The New York Ex
press says that in several of the wards of New
York city, 'Democratic campaign clubs have
been formed, called "White Boys' Clubs,"
having for a motto: "This is a White Man's
country, founded on a White basis for White
Men." The Express says that these organiza
tions are to spread over the country, and that
they will soon appear with "their appropriate
insignia." We may add to this that these
white-livered '"White Boys" will of course
always appear with the appropriate insignia
of a White. Flag.
THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE iS Still
receiving great numbers of letters, which, in
the estimation of Commissioner Newton, show
that the crops, taken all together, will be an
average. Last year the West fell off near two
hundred millions of bushels. This year the
product, of the West will be equal, on an ave
rage, to what it has been for live years back.
it is clear that speculators in breadstuff at
this time are not going to realize enormous
profits by holding them.

Have You Heard the _News, from Maine?
«ALL ETON EST AND TRUE!"
Maine held her State Election yesterday.
and cast a very full vote, despite the absence
of at least ten thousand of helvoters in the
Union armies. The result is better than we
had expected. The Union party carries the
State, of course, and by just about the ma
jority of last year, re-electing Gov. Cony by
some 17,000 majority, and putting John Lynch
(Union) in the place of Lorezo D. Sweat
(Dem. ) in the next House of Representatives,
by about 1,000 majority. (Sweat carried the
District in 1862 by 127 majority; but that was
a blunder not to be repeated.) The whole
delegation in the next Congress will be Union
ist, including a Senator in place of Mr. Fes•
senden. The Representatives will stand as
District I. John Lynch, of Portland.
