FRIDAY EVENING, NOV - EIGER 18, 1864
it is of course admitted on all sides, that
what was left of the Democratic party to
make a contest in the late Presidential election
was utterly demolished by the crushing force
of the overwhelming defeat which it met at
the hands of the Union men of - the country.
Admitting this to be the fact, we do not de•
sire it to be understood, when we refer to the
dead oareasa of "Democracy," that we have
any intention of raising a "stink." Our refer-
enee to the men who once animated that or-
ganization with their hate, is only made to
show that the same leaders are as much bent
od niischief as they were when they had every
reason to believe that victory would perch
upon their banners and that they would be
invested with the control of the Government.
By the aid of the old Democratic leaders and
the journals which represented and advocated
their cause, the spirit of spite which after
wards became the animating feeling of the
people of the South in all their relations
to the people of the North, was created and
fostered in the odium elicited on the subject
of abolitionism. Long years ago, when abo-
litionism was an impracticable idea, and when
its agitation was confined to a few honest
but inexperienced and weak men, the Dem
ocratic leaders took advantage of the fact, to
intensify and control the political preferences
of the Southern people. Thu mischief of the
present rebellion may be correctly accounted
as the result of the misrepresentation, en
tirely, of the Democratic press in reference
to "abolitionism." Aiming constantly at po
litical power and plunder, the Democratic
leaders could only retain themselves in place
by these distortions of public feeling in one
section while they completely misrepresented
the real facts of public sentiment in another.
And as we have already written, the result
was rebellion. The Southern people never
would have revolted, had the Democratic
leaders of the North abstained from their
foul abuse of the objects of every political
party but that controlled by themselves, in
reference to slavery. And now that the rebel
lion has so fearfully desolated the whole land,
and even when the great mass of the loyal
American people have repudiated these lead
ers, they still seem to be bent on mischief by a
desperate and almost insane effort to induce
the men in rebellion to believe that the object
of the National Administration is solely and
only to subjugate and then 'EXTERMINATE the
people of the South. Like the original cry
of abolition, that of extermination is made to
intensify Southern hatred of the people of the
free States. It is utterly without justification
or support. On the contrary, the great masses
of the people of the free States—or to speak
more plainly, every man who voted for the re
election of Abraham Lincoln, is really and
honestly in favor of living in peace with the
people of the South, on terms of perfect
equality. The idea of putting down the
slave-holders' rebellion, does not involve any
intention or thought of exterminating the
people of the South. True it is, that the ex
termination of the leading conspirators would
be a blessing to the slave States, but even these,
under the law, could hope for merciful consid
eration if they immediately returned to their
allegiance and gave unmistakable evidence of
' an honest purpose to repair the wrongs they
had inflicted upon their country. All that is
wanted—nay, all that is demanded, is the full
recognition of the national authority, the
laying down of the arms of those in rebellion,
and the war will end. The Government did
not commence the strife. The war was the
result of the hot haste and vindictiveness of
the leading conspirators. They complained
of no wrong but what could have been righted
without an appeal to arms, bat they rushed
Into battle insanely calculating that they
could intimidate and then conquer the Gov
ernment which they were bound by every sa
cred tie to obey and uphold. Indeed, the war
was entirely the result of the lies of of North
ern Democrats, combined with the low hatreds
of Southern. slave-masters. These two classes
now seek to prolong the contest, as they first
provoked it, by misleading the men who have
suffered all the hardships.
do not believe
they will succeed. By this time the masses
of the southern people must fairly understand
that the Government means to have peace and
loyalty at all hazards. Peace could be restored
to-morrow, if the people of the slave States
gave up the fight. Peace is at the command
of every State now in rebellion. All that is
requisite. is that the people of the South stop
fighting, and peace will come. They have it
in their own power. But if the Southern
masses continue to be led by the desperadoes
who have so long cursed the earth, or allow
themselves to be duped by Northern politi
cians, who have no longer any power except
for mischief, peace will never come to the South,
unless it be in the shape of extermination.
The people of the South inaugurated the yar
by their own act. They must, in like man
ner, stop the conflict. All that loyal men fight
for is peace. If subjugation attends the strug
gle for that result, the eiders and abettors of
Southern rebellion, and not the Government,
will be to blame.

A Letter from JudgeWoodward—A False
The Democratic citizens of Brooklyn as
sembled in large numbers, on Tuesday night,
to hear, cheer, and growl over the election
returns. Their entertainment was varied with
speeches and letters from politicians. Among
the letters iS one from Judge Woodward, of
this State, written two days before the elec
tion. The pith of it is contained in. the fol
lowing extract, being quite a remarkable
prophecy, that—didn't coma to pass:
In all my intercourse with citizens, in every
part of this State, I 'have inproved every op
portunity to urge the election of Dl'Clellan and
Pendleton as the last hope and refuge of our
suffering country,. The best I could do was
to point them to their own conscious exist
ence under former Administrations in con
trast with the present; to a united,
ous country in contrast with the bloody dis
cord that rends and ruins us now. lam hap
py to believe that the popular mind has
grasped the great truth that the men who
have brought desolation upon us must be
turned nut of public trust, and that Tuesday
next will record the popular judgment against
the Administration. The people of Pennsyl
vania, by at least twenty-five thousand majority,
are for the Democratic ticket ! ! We mean to
do what we can to have a fair ballot, and, if
we are not cheated out of it in too many local
ities, the electoral vote of this State Will as cer
tainly be cast for lir Claim and Pendleton as that
Tuesday's sun shall rise and set ! !" ,
A Fair Election.
The Greensburg herald of the 16th instant,
thus illustrates the manner in which the
Democratic election officers in that borough
labored. for a "fair election." The same im
partial fairness characterized the conduct of
the same men all over the country:
Two members of the Provost Guard in this
place—both belonging to the Invalid Corps—
the one an Irishman and the other a German
—both single men having served over two
years in the Army and both naturalized a few
weeks since, taking out their papers in Pitts
burg—both having been assessed and having
paid taxes in this Borough, presented them
selves at the polls last Tuesday. It was
claimed and not denied that neither had any
residence any other place in the United
States, and yet the Irishman was allowed to
vote, and the German was refused that privi
lege. Now do any of our readers want to
know why the "one was taken and the other
left ?" Answer. The Irishman was going to
vote for M'Clellan, and the German was going
to vote for Lincoln. That was the reason and
the only reason.

KANSAS ELECTION.—We learn from the St.
Louis Union that there were two 'Union State
tickets run in Kansas at the late election, one
called the Lane ticket, the other the Anti-
Lane ticket. The returns thus far received
show that the Lane ticket has been beaten by
a large majority. Leavenworth county gives
800 majority against it. Atchison gives a ma
jority of 250 against it. S. 0. Fletcher (Anti-
Lane) has probably been elected Governor;
General A. L. Lee (Anti-Lane) to Congress;
John J. Ingalls (Anti-Lane) Lieutenant-Gov
ernor; W. B. Saunders (Anti-Lane) Secretary
of State; John B. M'Clure (Anti-Lane) State
Treasurpr; Asa Hairgrove (Anti-Lane) State
Auditor; and all the other candidates on the
same ticket are also supposed to be elected.
There was but one ticket of Presidential elect
ors, and both parties united on it.
BRIG. GEN. ABNER C. HARDING, formerly
a member of the bar of New Bloomfield, Perry
county, and who made such a stout defence
of Port Donelson in Tennessee, where he had
command, has just been elected to Congress
in the 4th District of Illinois. He is worthy
of the promotion. He lives in a Democratic
district, and carried it by a large majority.

to-day before a military commission. He was
charged with uttering false and counterfeit

OFFICIAL DISPATCH TO THE CONTRAST OF THE
Westoznoron, Nov. 17.—An official dispatch,
received here to-day, confirms the statement
that Maj. Gen. Canby, while going up the
White river to direct matters in Arkansas,
was fired upon by guerrillas, and wounded in
the upper part of the thigh. The wound is a
severe and painful one, but fortunately is not
dangerous. He arrived at New Orleans, the
dispatch says, safely on the 12th, "and
willreceive the best care, under the superin
tendence of Mrs Canby. His mental facul
ulties are entirely unaffected, and with his
admirable power of endurance and strength
of mind, we hope he will be about in a few
weeks. After he was wounded, he consulted
fully with General Reynolds, at the mouth of
the White river, and it is confidently believed
that the accident will in no way interfere with
the direction of affairs in this division."
The above dispatch shows the report of the
death of Canby, telegraphed from Memphis,
to be untrue.
THE ADVANCE MOVEMENT OF GEN. SHERMAN
The Nashville correspondent of the Times,
of this city, in noticing the advance move

It was not believed that Sherman would
