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 Weekl,PAraier AND
13stioN 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*ith 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 retell:Won 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 abilityomn be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly PANzior AND UNION 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 hie aid in Airmail* tins supeetiptiou list up 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 iime HMOS n4O 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 trifling; and, while we can
not persuade ourselves that the change necessarilymade
will result in any diminution of our daily circulation,
yet, were we certain that such would be the conse
quence, we should still be compelled to make it, or met
ier a ruinous loss. Under 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 paged fee which many of our subscribers bare
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

THURSDAY MORNING}, AUGUST 13, 1863
GOV. SEYMOUR AND PRESIDENT LIN-
[From the Albany Argus.]
The correspondence between these two func
tionaries in regard to the draft will attract the
earnest attention of the people.
The authorities at Washington made public
the letter of the governor and the reply of the
Preeident. We add the rejoinder of the gov
ernor, to which there has been no answer as
Gov. Seymot , r presents with great force the
position of th. State h. aspect to the draft.
Replying to the cry i. Lich has been ra.sed that
the draft should be enforced at all hazards and
et the bayonet's point and cannon's mouth, if
need be, in order to purdah the city for the
guilt of the recent riots, he shows that those
riots only became formidable because the city
was stripped of its militia force to aid the gov
ernment, and that they were repressed by the
citizens themselves, with very little govern
ment or State aid. There is no justice then in
punishing the city by enforcing the draft.
There is no justicnin the draft itself. The
governor's letter, (which, presents but a few
samples of the forthcoming proofs,),shows the
partiality and fraud which have characterized
the enrollment, Even the President recoils
before the disclosure. Is,such a draft to be
enforced ? Is it to be carried out, even before
the grave doubts sal.° its constitutionality are
settled by judicial decision? The law does
not compel the President to draft. He may
still have recourse to volunteers. It is at his
option whether to press the obnoxious scheme,
or substitute the more effective end approved
methods in former use. At any rate, let the
other States, which are yet behind on the old
quotas, fill up their requisitions, before New
York is .called upon ; and in the meantime, let
the constitutionality of the law be judicially
What is the reply of the President? He
cannot afford time ! Davis is driving his con
scripts into the army "like bullocks to a slaugh
ter pen," and he wants to follow his example.
The example of Davis has always presented an
attraction - to the President, which he has stead
ily tellowed. His arbitrary acts have been
stimulated by a seal of imitation of his South
ern rival, far more than by his own deliberate
The President has not time to be just Yet
the conscription law was passed the 15th March
last, and it is now five months, and the draft
ing has hardly commenced. It will be months
more before it is finished.
Enough is known to show that it will be a
costly and annoying process; and it is already
drawing as many men from the field to enforce
it, as it yields in net results to the army.
Equally fallacious is the excuse which the
President, offers that "volunteering is palpably,
in fact, 'so far exhausted as to be inadequate."
The allegation is unfounded. Volunteering
was and is Imamate to all the Want 4 of the
army. it has been going on in this State with
spirit. In this city 850 men have received the
State bounty for enlisting,since May last. In the
last ten days 700 have volunteered in New York
city; and this is regarded as a small number,
explained by the fact that as many have been
hired as substitutes for Maesachusette regi
ments. In the whole State 10,000 men must
have volunteered since the passage of the con
scription act. The inducements which that act
offers, stand in the way of volunteering. If
that were out of the way we should double our
enlistments. The President slanders the peo
ple and satirizes his own administration, when
he says that their willingness to volunteer is
exhausted. The people have felt rebuked,
humiliated and discouraged by bad faith and
maladministration at Washington, and by the
apecticle so constantly exhibited of a lack of
confidence in them on the part of their rulers.
But their patriotism and love of the Union and
Constitution. are not exhausted.
The determination old the President on the
subject of the draft is in consonance with this
general spirit of distrust. He prefers to sent'
men to the army " as a butcher drives bullocks
to the slaughter pen," to use his own unfortu
nate simile, rather than trust the spontaneous
movement of the people. Ile will gain nothing
by his choioe.
Gov. Seymour's rejoinder brings home I o the
President the responsibility not merely of car
rying into effect an odious law, but of sustain
ing and enforcing gross frauds. Even a parti
san President who, upon his inauguration,
professed that the- " Chicago Platform was a
law to him," and repudiated the decisions of
the Supreme Court, will pause at such revela
tions 86 these :
9 Democratic Districts...lsl,243 33,729
19 Republican _457,257 39,626
Tne men guilty of such an apportidemetre
should be brought to punishment. The feeble
compromise which the President proposes—to
forego half the draft in four Democratic dis
tricts, and then re-enroll before proceeding
further—does not meet the case. The falsifi
cation of the enrollment characterizes it every
where ; and is organic and apparently inher
ent in tie scheme.
The President has no censure for the fraud
or its authors; and no disposition, apparently,
to protect the people from it. Gov. Seymour
addresses him in these honest, straightforward
earnestly request that you will direct that
the enrolling officers .shall submit to the State
authorities their lists, and that an opportunity
shall be given me, as Governor of this State,
and to other State officers, to look into the fair
ness of these proceedings. Justice to the en
rolling officers, to the honor and dignity of the
government, to the people who are so deeply
affected, and to the public tranquility demands
that suspicions which are entertained shall be
removed if they are unfounded."
To this request President Lincoln refuses
any reply, Will he give more attention to the
request of the Governor to right the gross
wrongs which he expresses to him, in the man
ner of this partisan enrollment'? We shall
[From the New York Won t.]
Governor Seymour's forcible rejoinder to
President Lincoln's reply to his letter is a
document calculated (if we may borrow the
striking 'Arose of a Hebrew prophet) to cause
the 4 M of time who row' it to tingle. It is

are in the hands of the governor so powerful,

ing them tumbling and rattling , in all direc.
tions. We will not repeat his figures, as no
body can fail to read the letter.
With just and manly indignation Governor
Seymour picks up Mr. Lincoln's description of
Jeff. Davis's conscription, inserts a barb in the
end of it, and hurls it like a javelin into the
very heart of the dishonest partisan appor
tionment in this State. If Davis drives every
able- bodied man he can reach into his slaugh
ter-pen, his conscription hem at least the merit
PRICE TWO CENTS.
of impartiality; while the monstrous discrimi
nation against Democratic districts in this
State, for the purpose of extinguishing the
Democratic majoriiy at future elections, dis
closes a depth of political baseness which ren
ders Mr. Lincoln's prating about the impera
tive necessity of his ation contemptible. There
are a dozen States which are behind New York
in the proportion of men they have furnished
in which the draft has nt,t, been commenced.
If the" necessity k so pressing, why not com
plete the conscription in them, and let New
York wait until she oan•have the benefit of an
honest enrollment? No reason.oan be alleged,
except a determination to make the draft in
New York an engine of partisan oppression
for enforcing it here on a palpably fraudulent
enrollment.. while it is put off in other States
from which no complaint is made.
Mr. Linciln is politically blind if he does
not perceive that. Olio question is fast passing
beyond the domain of argument. More Dem.
ocrats will be left in New York than he can
take away conscripts to the war . ; and it. be
hooves him to consider whether our armies in
the South will be really strengthened by a pro
ceeding which will create a necessity for large
armies in every loyal State.

our rights and liberties have been assailed.
One after the other, the props that sustained

by constitutional guarantees that we once
deemed them secure from violation have been
stricken down and trampled upon. But while
the exercise of the elective franchise remained
to us, there was a remedy for every evil and a
path-way from every danger. The elective
farce that ha^ been played in Kentucky, shows
that now the Administration aims to annul the
franchise without which we are powerless
against error, fanaticism, and ambition. The
spoiler reaches after the brightest jewel of our
nationality ; we must guard it at every Lost ;
we must protect it at every hazard, fur within
it dwells the soul of our freedeon, and when we
relinguish it, the Republic dies.
The elective franchise is valueless unless it
be pure, untrammeled, and uninfluence by force
or fear. It cannot exist in the atmosphere of
Martial law. The citizen at the polls should
feel himself a sovereign about to perform a
sovereign function, than which none more
sacred and potential exists in the Common
wealth. The presence of a controlling military
power is destructive of the very essence of an
election. The gleam of bayonets and the grim
show of artillery keep the voter within doors.
He is either too timid or too proud to exercise
MS right under the supervision of armed sol
diery. He yields his privilege rather than
submit to the - cross-questioning of some imper
tinent and arrogant subaltern, and thus the
elective franchise is virtually suspended.
General Burnside's declaration of martial
law in Kentucky, upon the eve of an election,
demonstrates the insolence and reckless pre
sumption of the administration and its military
I minions. There was no further necessity for
martial law at that period than at any time
since the commencement of hostilities. It was
proclaimed in view of the election, and for the
purpose of affecting the election_ It was the
first step of other steps that are intended in
that direction. It was an avant courier, and
advance guard of the enemy, a pioneer sent
forward to explore a hitherto untrodden path.
It was an experiment, a bold and cunnit4 ly
contrived expedient, to make trial of the efh
eaay of military machinery upon elections,
and to test the temper of the people upon the
subject. In regard to the first motive, it has
succeeded to'a miracle. Kentucky has had its
election, but the voice of its people has spoken
never a word. - The verdict on that occasion
has been constrained, a false and subservient
utterance that came not from the heart of the

EXTRACT OF A LETTER FROM CHARLESTON.-
The annexed was written by an Englishman
in Charleston to hie brother in New York :
"I was employed at Fort Sumpter yesterday
in making iron bands and hooks for cotton
bales, round each of which two strong iron
bands are rivetted, eaoh connected with a flat
chain behind the bale, and running up end
wise; in which position it is lowered down to
the bottom of the wall; on top of this lower
row of bales, others are fitted itnd lowered in
P. similar manner ; the next upper tier protect
ing the euspeudtng chains of the lower, BO that
it is only the iron bands around thr bales ex
posed to shot from the enemy. Under this
mode of defense only the guns and portholes
are exposed. The heaviest guns were tried
here against bales of compressed cotton, with
out making much impression; indeed, in many
cases the shot rebounded thirty or forty feet.
" This mods of defense seems to riuder Fort
Sumpter impregnable; but as fresh troops are
pouring into Charleston, the oaptnre of Fort
Wagner by assault is a matter of doubt. If
such should be the result, however, it is but
one step toward the capture of Charleston
IVen if Fort Sumpter is rendered untenable, it
is alt ready to be blown up and laid in nuns.
Even then by far the strongest defenses of
Charleston remain, of which no desesiption
