SUBSCRIBED FOR IN CLUBS OF NOT LESS
THAN TEN COPIES TO ONE ADDRESS!
We have been compelled to raise the club subscription
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save our
selves from actual loss. Paper has risen, including
taxes, about twenty-five per cent., and is still rising;
and when we tell our Democratic friends, candidly, that
we can no longer afford to sell the Weekly Pante': min
Union st one dollar a year. and must add fifty cents or
stop the publication, we trust they will appreciate our
position, said, instead of withdrawing their subscrip
tions, go to work with a will to increase our list in every
county in the State. We have endeavored, and shall
continue our efforts, to make the paper useful as 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 PATN/OT AND USIOSI will not be less useful to
the party or less welcome to the family circle in the fu
ture than it has been In the past. 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 Beipscription list up to
twenty or thirty thousand. The expense to each bidi
vidual is trifling, the benefit to the party may be great.
Delleving that the Deumeraeff of the State feel the ne•
iseseity 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 Daily paper, the
price of which is also increased. The additional cost to
each subscriber will be but tridingi and, while we can
not persuade ourselves that the change necessarily made
will result in any diminrition of our daily circulation,
yet, were we certain that such would be the conse
quence, we should still be compelled to make it, pr suf
fer a ruinous loss. tinder these circumstances we must
throw ourselves upon the generoelty, or, rather, the
justice of the public, and abide their verdict, whatever
it may be.
Tile period for whitil 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 .tie, same, in order that they may
RENEW THEIR Clatfßa.
We shall also take it as an especial favor if our present
subscribers will urge upon their neighbors the fact that
the PATRIOT AND ttiioa is the only Deruocratle paper
printed in Harrfelburg, and considering the large amount
of reading matter, embracing all the current news of

To enable the Postmaster to comply with this regula

Correspondence of the Patriot and Union
The signs of the times portend trouble for
Europe. Authorities agree in the belief that
a great war, involving the energies of all the
powers, is close at hand. A little ill may brew
a terrible collision, and the cloud that was no'
bigger than a man's hand has already grown
black, swollen and lowering, till it sits gloom
ily over every tenon Of this hemisphere. That
cloud was Poland; it is Europe now. A few
mutinous fellows of a prond race appeared on
the borders of the Sarmatian forests, armed
with scythes and spears. The great despot
who had aroused their rage thought to crush
'them in a night; but, 101 from all lands and
races, came the cry of " Aid for Poland !"
And encouraged by such sympathy, the rebel
lion still gasps on, holding the sword in one
hand, stretching out the other for help. The
revolutionary elements bf loreign kingdoms
are clamorous for the support of their respec
tive Governments. The crowned heads of said
Governments oars nothing for the rights or
wrongs of the Poles, but they hate and fear
the insatiate ambition of Russia. That colos
sus, like its celestial type, the great soar of
the constellation, strides the world from the
pole to the tropics, and it has wrested , from
more civilised powers the fairest acres of Eu..
rope. It has laid its paw upon the best half
of Poland, upon many populous provinces Of
Sweden, and its. present design is to 'clutch
some of the western seaports, •that it may rule'
the. ocean as it has conquered the land, and
make itself terrible to the older nationalities,
with which it has already measured strength.
The kings combine to resist this monster, and
they have paused tremulously ere they strike;
for the contest may change the fortunes of
mankind and pluck sceptres from many a
This is the pause—and it is an ominous one.
All Eur Ope is still, save the cries that thrill us,
from the land of Kosciusko ; . and few care to
look across the Atlantic, when the ravens-are
singing at their own eves, and the storm
threatens to tumble their own idols. Now, in
this coming war, two or three principles are
plainly seen to have influence—the caution of
rulers, the ambition of races, and the hope of
freedom among the poor. Many of the crowns
sit precariously upon the craniums of the
great ; and while these would be glad to have
more territory, they are decidedly opposed to
lasing what they now possess. In their own
domains dwells a factious and oppressed ma
jority, which it is pretty hard to control in
time of peace, and which may avail itself of
foreign war as a means of deliverance. There
is only one idea which men love better than
freedom—glory—and the mass of mankind had
rather see a conquest on the part of their own
race than a triumph of the bond of any other
race. Take the attitude of Prussia in the Po
lish question, for example. The people of
Prussia are brave and liberal. They know the
sorrows of the Poles and the righteousness of
the Polish struggle. But Prussia once filched
a province from Poland, and rather than give
up that price of blood, the best of the Germans
will assist to strike down the revolutionists.—
Take England, also, where every class toss up
their hats for Lao giewice and shake 'cudgels at
the Czar; but here is Ireland, bound and half
famished at their own doors, and their enlarged
sympathies can do nothing for the poor Celts.
Take Sweden—the country of a pure, patriotic
race, and study its treatment of the Schleswig
Holstein question. Here is a little German
State, whose ruler happens for the time being
to be also ruler of Denmark. The Danes and
said ruler are endeavoring to crush out the
nationality of Holstein and amalgamate it with
Denmark forever. The Swedes know that this
is wrong, but then they are Scandinavians,
like the Danes, and they favor a contemptible
not of conquest rather than a great and good
sympathy with the opposite race. Denmark,
I may say incidentally, is a despicable land,
' inhabited by a paltry-minded people. It has
produced but two or three great men, has none
at present, and its commerce is now confined
to breeding brides for the monarchs of the rest
of Europe. Sweden is anxious to have a war
with Russia, and is holding out proposals for
that purpose to France--not for the good of
the Poles, but to recover Finland and certain
other regions lost by rash Charles the Twelfth:
France, restless, deceitful, ambitious, hopes to
Use the war for the humiliation of Prussia and
the extension of its own borders to the Rhine.
England dare not act without a signal from
Napoleon, and that astute parvenue has the
wholesome example of his 'mole to avoid con
tinental war. Austria is playing the shuttle
cock pail, between dread of Prance on one side,
of Rtidebt e t a the other and of . certain mutinous
elenaents‘froni within. .Italy is looking out for

a chance to abolish the Pope's temporal power
and to add Venice to its mushroom kingdom.
Prussia will be anything that France is not,
and the ally of anybody but the Gaul, although
just now the Republican element is so uncom
monly bold and noisy that the head successor
of " Old Fritz" may have to abdicatt,,and the
little seven-by-nine continental states are effer
vescing between the hope of gobbling up their
smaller neighbOrs and the.dread of Tieing gob
bled up themselves. Above all, these, with a
third of the globe in. its lug and the fire of
oonquest in its cold, icy eye, towers Russia—
its face westward ; -and thousands of fierce
Cossacks bearing behind its gospel of the sword.
It threatens, like. the Hun of old times, to be
the Scour& of the.world.. It moves slowly and
ponderously, menacing with its lances-alike the
repose of the Moslem and the progress of the
Saxon. There is no spot of-the earth's surface
which Russia does not covet, and there is no
forlorn hope which she dares not essay.. The
enemy of kings and of freedom alike, crunch
ing the slave beneath her paw, and glaring
upon the Emperor, she presents a sublimely
anomalous spectacle in this practical age.
I think there oan be no doubt es to the par
ties in this warfare which America must prefer.
There are some amonfrus whO would hail the
humbling of these pAild' !loiters by the bar
barian autocrat, that we might laugh.at their
calamity as they have mocked at ours. Some
of ns believe that Russia is our natural ally,
and we have a superstition that the Czar em-'
ploys nobody to lay his railways and raise his
ships but Yankee speculators. Prejudice' of
this kind may impel us to sympathy with the
Polar despot ; but we have a different gospel
from hie. We are the apostles of liberty. Our
cause is that of the struggling and the enslaved.
We cannot afford. to forsake this high position

and Poniatoweki. And we will hail the eman

though some interest or prejudice of our own

this grand European war as an opportunity
for the relief of the tied and trampled. Every

who have lit their torches from the American
revolution, and, in God's name, let them burn
thrones and dominions, palaces and powers !
A considerable term in Europe has satisfied
me that the happiest nationalities contain
thousands of wronged and• mutinous people.
Here in England there is widespread disaffec

and labor are equal. The seeds of revolution
exist even here, and let the Czar's letter of
instructions to his Minister in Paris tell the

not confined to it ; all Europe suffer, with the

agreed to :
We the Loyal Women of —, do hereby
pledge ourselves to justice and humanity,' and
to the government in so far as it makes the
war—a war for freedom.

Miss Williard, of Penn's, said the. pledge
was conditional to the extent of requiring a
war for freedoni. She nelleyed in syitaming
the government; though, if Vallandigham
should be erected President, she really didn't
know what she should do.
Ineredulity . was very generally manifeeted
as - to the possibility of Vallandigham ever
being elected President, but Miss Anthony ex
claimed that "the next President would be
something, like him." `
Miss Williard seemed to think that the pledge

Upon these proceedings a correspendent of

at conscription, and devote to it their "hue

Mr. Vallandigham never said half so much
in dispraise of the the administration.
When the Abolitionists were "bringmg pres
sure" to bear upon the President, and denoun
cing him for delaying his Emancipation Procla

"conditionally loyal." The charge, then but
faintly denied, is there openly avowed. How
often is the avowal made in secret.
