FORTY-FOUR COLUMNS OF READING MAT
TER EACH WEER I
AT THE LOW PRICE OF ONE DOLLAR
AND FIFTY gENTS!
SUBSCRIBED FOR IN civis OF NOT LESS
THAN TEN COPIES 70 ONE ADDRESS!
We have been compelled to raise the club subscription
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to nave our
selves from actual loss. Paper has risen, including
taxes, about twenty-five per cent., and is still rising ;
and when we tell our Demeeratie friends, candidly, that
we can no longer afford to sell the Weekly PATRIOT AND
UNION at one dollar a year. and must add fifty cents or
stop the publication, we trust they will appreciate our
position, and, instead of withdrawing their subscrip
tions, go to work with a will to increase our lint in every
county in the State. We have endeavored, and shall
continue our efforts, to make the paper useful a s a party
organ, and welcome as a news messenger to every fam
ily. We flatter ourselves that it has not been without
some influence in producing the glorious revolution in
the politics of the State achieved at the late election ;
and if fearlessness in the discharge of duty, fidelity to
the principles of the party, and an anxious desire to pro
mote its interests, with some experience and a moderate
degree of ability, can be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly PATRIOT AND UNION win not be less useful to
the party or less welcome to the family circle in theft
taro than it has been in the pet. We confidently look
for increased encouragement in this great enterprise,
and appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to
lend us his aid in running our sapscription list np to
twenty or thirty thousand. The expense to each indi
vidual is trifling, the benefit to the party may be great.
Believing that the Democracy of the State feel the ne
cessity of sustaining a fearless central organ, we make
this appeal to them for assistance with the fullest confi
dence of success.
The same reasons which induce us to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Dallfpaper, the
price of which is also increased. The additional cost to
each subscriber will be but trifling; and, while we can
not persuade ourselves that the change necessarily made
will result in any diminution of our daill ei r roalatiori,
yet, were we certain that such would be the conse
quence, we should still be compelled to make it, or suf
fer a ruinous loss. tinder these circumstances we must
throw ourselves upon the generosity, or, rather, the
justice of the public, and abide their verdict, whatever
it may be.
The period for which many of our subscribers have
paid for their paper being on the eve 'of expiring, we
take the liberty of issuing this notice, reminding them
of the same, in order that they may
RENEW THEIR CLUBS.
We shall also take it as an especial favor if our present
subscribers will urge upon their neighbors the fact that
the PATRIOC AND UNION is the only Democratic paper
printed in Harrisburg, and considering the large amount
of reading matter, embracing all the current new. of
the day, and
Prom everywhere up to the moment the paper goes to
press, political, miscellaneous, general and local news
market reports, is decidedly the
CHEAPEST NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED IN
There is scarcely a Tillage or town in the state in
which a club cannot be raised if the proper exertion be
made, and surely there are few places in which one or
more energetic men cannot be found who are in favor of
the dissemination of sound Democratic doctrines, who
would be willing to make the effort to raise a club.

N. B.—The following law, passed by Congress in
defines the duty of Postmasters in relation to the de
livery of newspapers to club subscribers :
(See Little, Bretere¢ edition ofthe..crees of 1860,
page 88;ehapter 13/, seciime 1.)
“Provided, however, that where packages of new pa
pers or periodicals are received at any post office directed
to one address, and the namea of the club subscribers to
which they_ belong, with the postage for a quarter in ad
vance, .hall be I:Lauded to the postmaster, he shall de•
liver the same is their respective owners.”
To enable the Postmaster to comply with this regula
tion, it will be necessary that be be furnished with the
list of names composing the club, and, paid a snartetla
(or year's) postage in advance. The uniform courtesy
of Postmasters, affords the assurance that they will
cheerfully accommoacte club eutocribers, and the latter
should take care that the postage, which is but a trifle
in each ease, be paid in advance. Bend on the clubs.

WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 20, 1863
WENDELL PHILLIPS AND C. L. PAL
While the official organ at Washington is
howling for the blood or ostraoitm of Vallan
digbam, who hasvommitted no offence against
law, it endorses Wendell Phillips as one of the
most loyal and patriotic men in the country,
and yet the most extreme, radical Democrat in
the land has never denounced the administra
,the same violence, or peppered it
with such unmerciful ridicule as this same
loyal and patriotic Abolitionist, Phillips. The
New York, papers contain a lecture delivered
by him a few evenings since at the Cooper In
stitute, before a very large audience, on the
state of the country. The lecture was one of
a likes before the Sixteenth Ward Republican
Association, and its president, Mr. Russell,
introduced the orator as the man who had done
more than any other, except John Brown, to
bring the American people to the banks of Jor
dan. As our readers may be curious to hear
what style of language is held by Mr. Phillips.
before a Republican association in New York;
at a time when Mr. Vallandigham Is under
going trial in Ohio for speaking contumeliously
of the military and civil authorities, we think
it proper, - as 'belonging to- the history of the
times through which we are passing, to cite
the following extracts fro% the speech of the
orator as we fend it reported in the New York
Tribune of Tuesday last :
I do not believe in the government at Wash.
ington. I believe in the nation; I believe in
events ; I believe in the inevitable tendency of
these coming ten years toward liberty and.
Union. But it is to be done as England did it
in 1640, by getting rid gradually, man by man,
of those who don't believe in progress, but be
lieve in the past, And as man by man of that
class retiree, and we bring to the front men
who are earnest in the present, victory,
strength, and peace are to be the result.. *
We want earnestness, ideas, a willingness to
sacrifice everything, a readiness to accept the
issue, courage and industry in thinking. We
have got now two Generals-in-Chief and two
Commanders-in-Chief. They both live in
Washington. The sad news reaches us to-day
that one of them means to take the field.—
[Laughter.] Lincoln and Halleek—they sit
in Washington, Commanders-in-Chief, exerci
sing a somewhat
_slisastrous influence, that
even a Bonaparte slbuld exercise on a battle if
he tried to fight it by telegraph a hundred
miles distant. But now it is said one of
them means to take the field. Heaven forbid !
[ Applause. ] Now, the difference between
Halleck and Fremont is just this. One has
not learned anything since he graduated at
West Point, and does not want to. He does
not mean to undertake the labor of thinking.
He is too indolent to go about to examine a
new idea. It is enongh for him that it was not
in the text books when he graduated. [Laugh
ter.] Battles were not - fought so when be was
taught, and if he is beaten according to the
book he is willing to be beaten. [Laughter.]
The German commanders complained of Napo
leon, when he first launched into the battle
field, that he violated ttli the ralee. Now his
Missouri rival occupied the nineteenth centu
ry, and thought out the issues for himself—
had the labor of meeting a new contingency.
He went to the head, of the army a living man
—net a dead, printed book. In my opinion,
lam beyond all likes and dislikes. The day
is too serious for antipathies. or likings. All
these men are nothing but dead lumber, to be
thrown into the gulf, that the nation may
march with flowing incense to liberty and
pease. [Applause.] But never will this re
bellion be put down while West Point rules at
Washington. [ Applause: ], It does rule.—
That second Commander-in-Chief cuts off eve
rything that outgoes his• own routine. There
i are two great distinctions to be made in the
army and in the State;. one is, such a man as
Italica hates negroes, spurns . novelties, dis
trusts ideas, rejects everything but red tape.
The others are Hamilton, Butler, Phelps, and
Fremont. [Loud applause.' Sigel is in the
field, and I hope he will drag in the rest. • [Ap
plause.] The cook takes an onion and peels
off layer after layer, Sill she gets to the sweet
sound vegetable. So you will have to peel off
Seward and Halleck [laughter], till you get to
the sound, national element of civil and mili
tary purpose, the earnest belief, the intense
devotion to victory, the entire belief in justice,
which can cope with c• Stonewall " Jackson.
[ Applause. ] Never till then shall we suc
I want somebody to occupy the Presidential
chair who believes in the government and in
the people, who will act without casting his
eye over his shoulder to see bow far the people
will support him. We want leaders that ini
tiate—that actually lead. Friends, my belief
is that you and I are bound to create an ex
pecting, imperative public opinion that shall
compel the government to the adoption of such
measures and sueh men. I say such men,
because, though I believe in events, which are
stronger than Cabinets, and are bearing us
onward whether we will or not, I believe also
in men as harmonizing the issue of events.—
Let me make the generals and I don't care who
makes the proclamations. Only let me put at
the head of the advancing columns of the Union
certain men that I could name, and the Cabi
net at Washington may shut themselves up and
go to sleep with Rip Van Winkle till 1872.
[Laughter.] For I know men, one blast of
whose bugle horn were worth a million of men
—only put them in the heart of the rebellion
where our armies ought to be.
Your own great fellow-citizen goes to Wash
ington under the pledge of the President, too
much in a hurry to allow him to leave Wash
ington for six hours, stays for a week, and
comes back without a commission. Why? Be
cause Abraham Lincoln is not President of the
United Status; because behind him, curbing hie
purpose, making conditions that balk his de
signs, making him doubt the purpose and the
strength of the North, standing around him in
civil and military positions, are men who do
not mean that this battle shall be bravely and
gallantly fought through. Cromwell never
succeeded until the Long Parliament sloughed
off every man that believed in the lords, and
left nothing but Democrats behind. We shall
never succeed until we slough off everything
that believes in the past, and bring to the
front everything that believes there is but one
purpose—that is, to save the Union on the ba
sis of liberty. [Cheers.]
I doubted somewhat when I heard the news
from the Rappahannock until I saw that re
verses had taught the nation where its strength
lay. Until Sigel was called to Washington I
PRICE TWO CENTS.
doubted whether the government was being
educated in its pathway. The moment he went
I saw sunlight behind the cloud. [Applause.]
God grant us so many reverses that the gov
ernment may learn its duty; God grant us that
the war may never end till it leaves us on the
solid granite of impartial liberty and justice.
[Cheers.] What we have got to teach Wash
ington is that that is the full purpose of the
million, and under it and in it is the certainty
of success—the millions, not the leaders.—
None of them—l am utterly impartial—neither
President, nor Cabinet, nor Senate. Peel off
Seward,-peel off Halleek, peel off Blair, peel
off Sumner—yes. Massachusetts Senators as
well as others. I will tell you why. When
the government called on New- England for a
negro regiment., and we went from county to
county, urging the black to enlist, one Massa
chusetts colonel dared to say, in the face of
the enemy, that he had rather be whipped
without negroes than to conquer at their side,
a Massachusetts colonel in that hour of emer
gency and critical issue His case within
twenty days went before the Senate of the
United States, and the very week that his apo
logy was filed the the War Office at Wash
ington, Massachusetts Senators begged their
reluctant brothers to make him a brigadier
general. [" Shame, Shame. "] A private,
ignorant, uneducated, just mustered in the
service, mutinied in the streets of Boston, and
Colonel Lowell shot.him rightfully. [Cheers.]
A Massachusetts Colonel mutinied in the face
of the enemy, and a Massachusetts Senator
made him a brigadier general. Such Repub
licanism will never put down the rebellion.—
[Cheers.] Never until we welcome the negro,
the foreigner, all races as a man, and, melted
together in a common nationality, hurl them
all at despotism, will the North deserve triumph
or earn it at the hands of a just God.
EXTRAcre FROM' DAN'L WEBSTER.
The following extracts from the great Ameri
can statesman need no comment. On the 17th
of March, 1852, he wrote to his farmer, John
Taylor, as follows :
"John Taylor!. if one of your boys should
say that•he honors his father and mother, and
loves his brothers and sisters, but still insists
that one of them shall be driven out of the
family, what can you say of him but this, that
there is no real family love in him ? • You and .
Lars farmers; we never talk politics, our talk
is of oxen ; but remember this : that any man
who tries to -excite one part of the country
against another; is just as wicked as he would
be who should attempt to get up a quarrel be
tween John Taylor and his neighbor, old Mr.
John Sanborn, or his other neighbor, Captain
Burleigh. There are some animals that live beat
in the fire; and Mere are some men who delight in
heat, smoke, combustion, and even general confla
gration. They do not follow the things that make
for peace. They enjoy only controversy, conten
tion and strife continually. Have no communion
with such persons, either as neighbors or politicians.
You have no more right to say that. slavery
ought not to exist in Virginia, than Virginia
has to say that slavery ought to exist in New
Hampshire. This is a question left to every
State to decide for itself ; and if we mean to
keep the States together, we must leave to every
State this power of deciding for itself.
"I think I never wrote you a ward - before
upon politics, I shall not do so again. I only
say love your country, and your whole country ;
and when men attempt to persuade you to get
into a quarrel with the laws of other States,
tell them that you mean to mind your own busi
ness, and advise them to mind theirs. John
Taylor, you are a free man ; you possess good
principles ; you have a large family to rear
and provide for by your labor. Be thankful to
the government which does not oppress you,
which does not bear you down by excessive,
taxation, but which holds out to you and yours
the hope of all the blessings which liberty, in
dustry and security may give. John Taylor,
thank God morning and-evening, that yen were
born in such a country. John Taylor, never
write me another word upon politics. Give
my kindest remembrance to your wife and
children ; and when you look from your east
ern windows upon the graves of my family, re
member that he who is the author of this letter
must soon follow them to another world.
Oh, that we bad now such a "government" as
Daniel Webster wrote to John Taylor about—
one "which does not oppress you, which does
not bear you down by oppressive taxation, but
which holds out to you and yours the hope of
all the blessings which liberty, industry and•
security can give !"
In another letter to Mr. Taylor he says :
"I am glad you have chosen Mr. Pike repre
sentative. He is a true man, but there are in
New Hampshire many persons who call them'f
selves Whigs, who are no Whigs at all, and no
better than disunionists. Any man who hesi
tates in ,granting and securing to every.part of the
country its just and constitutional rights, is an
enemy to the whole country."
Unfortunately, in these degenerate days of
Abolition rule, Daniel Webster's ideas of good
constitutional government are- ignored, and
consequently we are having the worst adminis
tered government,. under the noblest and•freest
institutions, that the world ever knew. The
reign of giants has been succeeded by the reign
of pigmies, and the-people suffer.

We often make life unhappy in wishing
things ta have tamed, out otherwise than they
did, merely because that is possible to the
imagination which is impossible in fact.
To ruminate upon evils, to make critical
notes upon injuries, and to be too acute in
their apprehensions, is to add unto our own
tortures, to feather the arrows of our enemies,
to lash ourselves with the scorpions of our
foes, and to resolve to sleep no more.—,Sir

can receive is the praise of servants.—Dr
It is common to men to err ; but it is only a
fool that perseveres in bis error : a wise man,
therefore, alters his opinion, a fool never.—
There is something like enchanment in the
very sound of the word youth, and the calmest
heart, at every season of life, beats in double
time to it.—Landor.

river will, this season, be appropriated almost
exclusively to the culture of tobacco. In 1860
over six millions of pounds of tobacco were
raised in the State, and this year the amount
will probably be doubled, which, with th e
prices also doubled, will render profitable re
turns to the producers. Connecticut, is the
tenth State in the Union in the' amount of to
bacco raised. Numerous tobacco houses or

Efiquirer of the 15th instant has been received
here, and contains the following editorial arti
"There is evidently to bean active summer
campaign. The plan of the enemy seems to
be to keep our attention constantly excited at
every point at once, o. that Ato part of - . our
whole wide frontier may be freed from the
urgent, immediate apprehension of an attack.
Then they can strike where they think our line
is weakest or our defender's least prepared, and
if repulsed, can retire and direct a blow at
some other quarter. In the meantime, they
can bag much plunder and cause much sorrow
and heart-break to our people by , expeditions
through thinly-populated regions • destitute of
troops, and also force more and more of our
people within their lines to take their hated
oath for a quiet life, and to Save their property
from confiscation. Thus they can both de

"In the Raleigh Proireat, of the Mk, we
read : - , Gunboats continue- to prowl up and
down the Chowan and Perquirnons rivers.
They steal negroes, silverware, jewelry, and
everything they can lay hands on, and have -
broken up a number of fisheries. 'They stole
some four thousand 'dollars' worth of jewelrjr,
from a man named Cook, breaking up. his furs -

In one instance, they entered a soldier's house, .
and broke the crockery, furniture, &o. Five -

SENSIBLE. AND. PATRIOTIC.--ludige Dania, of
the United States Supreme Court, in his ad
dress to the Grand Jury at Inalianapolis, on
the 16th inst., said:
"The heart of the patriot is sickened and
humiliated at the discovery of the frauds and
speculations which have been perpetrated upon
the Government. It is a matter of the pro-.
foundest grief that there are living among us.
those who are base enough to cheat the Gov
ernment, when the homes of .our people are.
darkened by the horrors of civil war, and our•
blood and treasures are freely given to save
the life of the nation. T,he loathing• and scorn
which they deservedly received will not stop
the evil. The only effectual way to do it into
enforce the laws. If men will cheat and de
fraud ih a time like this, the 7 should fool the
pressure of the law, and be made, if possible,
to disgorge their ill-gotten gains. bf subject
to the rules and articles of war, they should
be shot; if in civil life, the severest penalties
of•the law should be their portion.'!.
