Weekly "Patriot & Union,"
THE CHEAPEST PAPER PUBLISHED IN
THE ONLY DEMOCRATIC PAPER PUBLISHED AT
THE SEAT OF GOVERNMENT !
FORTY-FOUR COLUMNS OF 'READING MAT•
TER EACH WEEK !
AT THE LOW PRICE OF ONE DOLLAR
AND FIFTY CENTS!
SUBSCRIBED FOR IN CLUBS OF NOT LESS
THAN TEN COPIES TO ONE ADDRESS!
We have been compelled to raise the club smbenription
Pries to One dollar and fifty cents in order to save our
selves from actual lolls. Paper MS 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 tell the Wee—my P&TRIIII, exn
limos at one dollar a year. and must add fifty cents or
atop the publication, we trust they will appreciate our
position, and, instead of withdrawing their subscrip
tions, go to work witha will to increase our liat 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 neat 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 fearlesancea in the discharge of duty, fidelity to
the principles of the party, and an anxiousdesire to pro
mote its interests, with some experience and a moderate
degree of ability, can be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly PATIZIOT sam_Tfsion Ism not be lees 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 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 assistant* with the fullest 'Gond•
dance of success.
The same reasons which induce us to raise the pries
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Daily paper, the
price of which Ii also increased. The additional. cost to
each subscriber will be but trifling; and, while we can
not perisnade ourselves that the change necossarilymade
will reach bet any diminution of our daily ciroulatiOu,
yet, were We certain' that each would be the conse
quence, we should still be compelled to make it, or Buf
fer a =lnoue loss. 'UMW these circumstances wemnst
threw ourselves upon the generosity, or, rather, the
justice of the public, and abide their verdict, whatever
it may be.
Thai period for which army of our anbaeribera have
paid for their paper being on the eve of expiring, we
take the liberty of humans 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 PaTurcer AND UNION is the nnly Democratic paper
printed is sarrisburg, and considering the large &Mount<
of reading matter, embracing all the current news' of
the day, and
from everywhere up to the moveelt, the pipet Roos to
press, political, miscellaneous, general and local newe
market reports, is decidedly the
CHEAPEST NEWSPAPER PUBLISELED IN
There hi aeareely 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 doctrine's, who
would be willing to make the effort to raise a-club.

N. B.—The following law, passed by Congress in 1860,.
defines the duty of Postmaatera in relation to the de
livery of newspapers to club subscribers :
(See Little, Brawn 4' edition of the Laws o'lB6o,
page 88, chapter 181, section 1.)
c'Provided, however, that where pachagetl of new pa
pers or periodicals are received at Imp post office directed
to one address, and the names of the club subscribers to
which ihey belong, with the postage for a quarter in ad
vance, shell be handed to the postmaster, he shalt de
liver the same is their respective owners.”
To enable the Postmaster to comply with this aegula
tion, it will be necessary that be be furnished with the
list of names composing the club, and paid a quarter's
(or year's) postage in advance. The uniform courtesy
of Postmasters, affords the assurance that they will
cheerfully accommooate club subscribers, and the latter
should take care that the postage, which ie but a trifle
in each case, be paid in advance. Send on the clubs.

is defended by Castle Pinckney, built almost in
the centre of the harbor on a shoal ;: and also
by Fort -Moultrie, seen at a distance on the
Bea-line—which is the same old fortress Sir
Peter Parker found sternly in his way in at
tempting to reach and burn Charleston, in the
time of our Revolution. Fart Sumpter is
another of the formidable defences of the city,
and presents a fine, martial aspect. Every
stone and brick of these fortresses was brought
by sea from the Northern States.
"This city was founded in 1670 ; and some
of its architectural peculiarities spring from
its early inhabitants—many of whom were
French Huguenots, driven by ecclesiastical
tyranny from their native land. its present
police system is one of the beet in the United
States. We saw no rows—no noisy drunkards ;
and above all, (and worth recording,) no
beggars in Charleston. No little, ragged, match
selling girls or barefoot boys, are here seen,
entering on the incipient career of vice, lead

one noble institution which speaks trumpet

mirable charities, of the genuine philanthropy
of the people of Charleston. We refer to its

that "in many respects the negro is superior!"

And yet, suck creatures may be seen,, almost
every day, sporting their kid gloves,. and even•
(Phillips especially) dining in the- Presiden

honest President Lincoln, with the oath of the
Constitution fresh upon his lips, sitting down

When the ruling authorities of South Caro
lina assailed the majesty of the law, and the
integrity of the Union of these States, our
humble voice was among the first of those who .
denounced the deed as one of madness and
treason. Faithfully and steadily ever sin*
have we sustained the government in all its
lawful efforts to put down the rebellion then
inaugurated ; faithfully and steadily still, shall
our humble support be given to maintain the
Union, as our fathers established it. But in
the name of all that is manly and noble' in
human nature, we demand that the contest, in
all its features, shall be conducted according
to the laws and usages of civilization.
