A Grand Scheme to Secure the Election of
George B. M,Clellan
It is now clearly understood, that the con
test for the election of a President of the
United States, so far as the friends of George
B. M'Clellan are concerned, is tube conducted
solely by fraud and falsehood. The. Chicago
platform is a fraud, because it was prepared
designedly to delude and mislead ignorant and
unsuspecting people. •M'Clellan's letter of ac
ceptance is a fraud, because its object is to
draw the wool over the eyes of the War Demo-,
crats and secure their support at the polls.
Pendleton's reticence is a fraud, because it is
persisted in to save the peace element. But
the greatest of the frauds pontemplated by the
copperheads is to be held in reserve until its
effect for mischief to the country and assist
ance in the defeat of Lincoln (as the cops hope
and calculate) will be , beyond counteraction. ,
The nature of the fraud is of this desteription:
On the eve of the Presidenttal election, the copper
head leaders will suddenly spring on the people a
proposition from Jeff. Davis to the effectthat if the
people in the free States elect George B 31'Clellan
the war shill at once cease, THE REBELLIOUS
STATES COVENANTING TO RETURN TO THEIR ALLE
GIANCE ON THE BASIS OF THE OLD Usrms,
tummy, with conipensation for the .sTace
propertg already lost, the return of all freed/ new
in the limits of the slave States at the time of 'the
cessation of hostilities, and the payment of the
debt incurred by the war, in COMMH ,
States North and South, by the Federal Gov
erment. It is calculated by the copperheads,
that this proposition will delude the peo
ple of the North into the election of M'Clel
lan, with the hope that the war will then end.
This scheme reminds us of the trick to which
M'Clellan loaned himself on the eve of the
last election for Governor in this State. - A few
days before that contest, M'Clellan wrote and
issued a circular letter appealing to his friends
to support Woodward, on the plea . that his
(M'Clellan's) political opinions harmonized
with those of Woodward's—when it was well
known that Judge Woodward had pronounced
the war to crash rebellion unholy and unjust
—that the slave States should be allowed to
go in peace—and that the Government could
not coerce a State after it had resolved to
leave the 'Union. This last triek, to delude
the loyal men of the North, on the plea that
the rebels will lay down their arms if M'Clel
lay. is elected President will fail as did 34'7
Clellan's trick to elect Woodward Governor.
Pennsylvania. Ohio, Indiana and lows—
four States—will hold elections for State offi
cers on the 11th of October ensuing. The
vote of these Statei will have. a controlling
influence on the one to follow in November.
In 1863, the Union majority in Ohio was 101,-
699, against a " Democratic " majority in
the year previous of 5,577. Independentnnd
loyal journals in Ohio speak confidently of
the majority for Lincoln in that State reach
ing that of 1863, as the influences which
brought disgrace and defeat to Vallandig
ham, are stronger to-day in the Buckeye State
than they were two years ago. Indiana did
not hold an elootion two years ago. How
ever, a spirited political canvass has been go
ing on in that State, and parties are actively
engaged for and against the Government, pre
paratory to the great contests at the polls in
October and November. In 1862 the "Demo
cratic " majority in Indiana was 9,613. Since
then at least five thousand Democratic voters
have left that State and entered the rebel ar
mies, so that we may reasonably look for a
Union victory in Inffiana at the approaching i
October ejection. in 1862, the Union major
ity in lowa was 15,1.15--in 1863 it was in
creased to 20,513—aniiiin October it will not
fall short of 30,000 majority. In 1862 the
"Democracy " carried Pennsylvania by a
small majority. 3,526. Meaner advantages
were never taken by a party, than those re
sorted to by the "Democracy." in this State
at that election. In 1863 our friends were up
and doing. The State was thoroughly can
vassed, and the result was the roJelection of
Governor Curtin by a majority of 15,325.
This majority will be increased on the popu
lar vote for Congress, in this State; A :tlie
coming October election, nudes the issues
that election will be involved at the November
election, we may reasonably calculate. ,that
Lincoln will carry Pennsylvania by at least
25,000 inejority. The skies vivre never so
bright for -the friends of liberty! law, and loy.
alty,._at any October election preceding_ a
Presidential contest .as they. - arc,
never before haye the patriotic - ine3i,:tf .th'e
land had no noble a ease to push to vieloiY.
Who go to M,Clellan.
Vallandigham, the traitor, goes for M'Clel
Wall, the notorious . New Jersey copperhead
and traitor, is for M'Clellan.
Every man who clamors for Peace and dis
graceful submission to traitors, is a M'Clellan
Every man who utters the standing lie that
the "Abolitionists" commenced the war,is for
Every rebel General, Colonel and Captain,
is in favor of the election of George B. M'-
Every Knight of the "Golden Circle" is for
Every officer who
,has been- dishonorably
dismissed from the army, (for proof of this
you can see them in the streets of Harrisburg, )
will vote for BTOlellan.
Every contractor who has been detected in
defrauding the Government, huzzas for M'-
Every deserter from the army is for M'Clel-
Every man who voted against the law al
lowing the soldier a vote, goes for M'Clellan.
Every man interested in the rebel loan, such
as the British rebel agent, Augustus Belmont,
of New York, is a warm friend of M'Clellan.
Such is the character of the leading sup
porters of M'Clellan. Friends of the Union,
what think ye of them ?
"HATE you heard the news from Maine,
Maine, Maine?" Latest news from Maine
show that the majority of the shoddy candi
date has been cut down from last year, just
about five thousand votes.—Patriot and Union,
'copy the above in order to show our
readers how the copperheads are given to ly

below) from seven counties, and partial re
turns from eight others, show that the Demo

The information from the Army of the Po

occurred within the past three days. ' The
expected attack of the enemy on Monday did
not take place, although from indications it

assault. Scarcely a shot had been heard along
the lines tor twenty-four hours.
A number of desrters come in every day,

Information received by the government up
