AND FIFTY CENTS!
SUBSCRIBED FOR IN CLUBS OF NOT LESS
THAN TEN COPIES 70 ONE ADDRESS!
We have been compelled to raise the dub 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 Mint., and is Still rising;
and when we tell our Democratic friends, candidly, that
we can no longer afford to sell the Weekly PATRISTAND
Dame 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 imbscrip
tions, go to work with a will to increase our list in every
county in the State.- We have endeavored, mid shall
continue our efforts, to make the paper meta as a party
organ, sod `welcome &We news messenger to every fam-'
Hy. 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 tate electipe;
and if fearlessness in the discharge of duty, fidelity to
the principles of the party, and ananxious 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 will not be less useful to
the party or leul we/come to the family circle in the fn
tire than it has been in the past.. We confidently look
for increased encouragement in this great enterprisie,
and appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to
lend us his aid in running our supscription 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.
,ceeeity 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 s 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 daily circulation,
yet, were we certain that such would be the conse
quence, we should still be compelled to make it, or suf
fer a ruinouelose. tinder these circumstances we must
throir ourselires 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 mwee, in order that they may
RENEW THEIR CLUBS.
We shall also take it as an . especial favor If our present
Imbecribers will urge upon their neighbors the fact that
the PATRIOT AND "UNION, ie the only Democratic paper

EVILS OF THE TIMES AND THEIR
REMEDY-LETTER FROM BON. CHAS.
R. B MCA LE IY. •
The *following letter, written by the Eon.
Chas. R. Buckalew, addressed to the mass meet
of the Democracy which was to have been held
,Square, Philadelphia, on the
4th of July last, but failed to come.off on ac
count of the disturbed condition of the State at
the time * , has found its way into public print
without the author's name. We make the cor
rection, while earnestly commending the aft
gaoity and philosophic force with which its
political viels are presented. Mr. Buckalew's
letter will camand the serious attention of
every thinking man who will give it a perusal—
the approbation of every one conservative
enough to understand the broad principles it
so admirably applies to the solution of the
great national problems before usi
The capital evils that afflict the nation are,
a . broken Union ; civil war ; an immense and
increasing debt ; great and unexampled bitter
ness in the social relations of men ; and last,
but not lbast, multiplied and grave" errors,
usurpation and abuses of power by men in
publip authority. How these evils can be
mist surely removed, and their recurrence
prevented, is the great, :the.. all engrossing
question which now confronts no and demands
That reply is • furnished in declaring the
policy of the Democracy of Pennsylvania—a
policy so simple, so just, so perfectly conformed
to the necessities of the times, that none can
misunderstand it, or sincerely question its fit
ness for the repression of existing evils:
That policy is connected with a sincere devo
tion to the laws of the land, and with a deep
conviction of the necessity of maintaining them
intact and. unbroken. These laws consist of
the COnstitution and statutes of the United
States,and of the Constitutions and statutes of
the several States,gand include much of the
common law of England - and those legal guar
antees of liberty which are the boast of British
history. These laws of the land make up that
American system of free government which has
insured our prosperity, and given us a high
place of honor among the nations of the earth.
But those laws hive been assailed,,.—that sys
tem of governmen has been inteoupte . d in its
co - ureethe Steles are broke,, asunder, and
sounde Of violence fill the land.
It is time, then, to inquire, who have assail
ed those lews„end who are now the enemies of
reunion and liberty ? Against whom, against
what interests shall the voice of 'this great
State be spoken and her power be exerted 'l_
Unquestionably the radical Abolitionists of
the North assailed, the - laws persistently and
earnestly for years—by incendiary documents
transmitted through the mails, to excite insur
rection in the South ; by seducing negro slaves
to abscond from their masters, atensting. their
escape, secreting thern from pursuit, and by
raising mobs to resist their reclamation. They
also created and kept . up agitation in Coograss
by petitions for unconstitutional laws, and the-
John Brown raid into Virginia—a mission of
rapine and blood—was assisted by their-coutri
butions, and, was followed by the canonisation
by them of its leader as saint. „Instigated
by them, , many of the Northern legislatures
enacted statutes to defeat or 'impede the recla
mation of fugitive slaves under the laws of the
United States, thus giving State sanction to the
At last the - ItepAbliciin party was founded,
and drew most of the Abolitionists into its
ranks, and along with them obtained their
passions•and , their fatal dogma that there are
laws of the individual will, higher in obliga
tion than the lawe of the . laud, and that the
latter, when they conflict with the former,.may
be broken without guilt and without reproach.
It followed, in dpe course, that the decision of
the Supreme Court of the Bni:ed States 'upon
negro citizenship and the rights of Southern
men in the territories was denounced, and ac
quiescence in it refueled by the Republicans,
,and the validity of any - establishing sla
very was . denied in their platform adopted at
They refused 'to he ,bound by the
law, and their platform was itself a .repudia.
Lion of the laws, as it denied their obligation.
The Abolitionists and the Republican -party
'are, therefore, first. in fault, in breaking sway
from good faith, duty and law, and their exam
-ple, and the apprehension of further acts of
aggression upu Southern rights by them pro-
PTOTOked (a►thungh they could not justify) the
exis.ing great rebellion. '
• That, rebellion was against the laws of the
United States, arid put the whole - body of them
at defiance. Although it as-erted for itself a
-legal ground of justitiJation, it is more mani
fest that it iras lawless and unauthorized. The
compact of Union being ariihotit limitation of
time, must beheld, as intended by ite.aut hors,
to be perpetual; and the provision contained
in ir• for its own amendment provides the only
lawful mode by which its obligation can be
limited or changed.. COnsiclering secession as
a breach of the public le4, and iii fleW Of the
immense interests put in peril by it, this State
concurred in measures of hostility against the
South. But this was done to vindicate the broken,
law, and to - secure the objects for which the
government of the United Stites was Originally
founded, and for so purpose of conqueet,
oppression,' or of fanatical experiment. Upon
this ground we may justify our •conduct, and
submit it, withbut apprehension of censure, to
the judgment of future times.
But the war has lasted more than two years,
and its' management, and the measures of leg
islation and of executive policy which have ac•
compahitd it, have given occasion for frequent
and just complaints. It has been so managed,
that our armies htyie been outnumbered whrre
decibivs 'battles were to be fought, or have been
rashly thrown upon. impregnable position+ of
the enemy. Our forces, greatly outnumbering
those of the Confederates, have been so disper
sed and so handled that their superiority has
not determined the issue of campaigns or con
cluded the contest. After c...titributing one
fifth of a million of men to. the war, our Slate
is insulted tty raids, ma is made dependent
upon the friendship of neighboring States for
her immediate defence.
But it is'uot the mismanagement of particu
lar mditary operations, nor other mere error
of policy of our rulers, that-has clunk into th e
hearts of freemen as matter of moat deep and en
during complaint. Mere mismanagement,or er
ror may be imputed to inexperience in war, to
accident, to exceptional or temporary causes,cir,
at the worst, to incompetency. Bat what shall
be said of acta'of Coogreas and aeta of the Ex

constitutional law. We need go but a little way
beyond the doctrine of these measures before
we conclude that the torch may be applied to
entire towns, and a servile, savage race be let
loose to works of rapine and ballatio war. -
But not merely in the policy of the war—in
our relations with the enemy - hags
with consequent evil, appeared. In these North
ern States, wholly untouched by revolt, -the
public sense has been outraged by repeated and
flagrant acts of arbitrary power. The enumer
ation of these would constitute a volume, and
they furnish a premonition of evil in the fu
ture which every patriotio mind should view
with deep apprehension. How long clan the
law be habitually and offensively broken by
the public authorities, in peaceful and' free
communities, before resistance will be pro
voked and a reign of social disorder estab
Thus, upon reviewing our affairs, we per
ceive how the spirit of revolution—that of dis
regard and oppositton to law—has worked to
our injury; how it presses upon us with a
heavy band at the present moment, and threat
ens oar future welfare. And we discover also
the parties or interests who are, in this con
nection chargeable with guilt. The pictures
dark and gloomy enough to create both abhor
rence and fear.
Unfortunately 'there is no certainty of the
amendmrent of our affair by parties or admin
istrations now in possession of power- The
Abolitionist stands iqtplassa.ble and insolent as
of old. and gives perverted direction to the
war. The Republican party, incapable and
prone to abuse, has control of the federal gov
ernment and of most of the State governments
North and West; and the Confederate gov
ernment, inimical to reunion, holds position in
the South. From none ,of these can we ex
pect the firm establishment of Union, order,
liberty and law- We are not to look to the
guilty for salvation, nor to those who break
the laws for their restoration. The Abolition
ist, the Secessionist, and the Republican ad
ministration and party, have each gone away
from the laws of the land, and it is - because of
their unfaithfulness to duty that wasting Thar
and the other evils before - meationed afflict the
country. , It is, idle to expert, from eitAer a
restoration of good government, and a firm
Union based - upon the affections of the people.
Bat for all the Wrong that has been done,
and for all the consequent calamities that have
fallen upon us, the great majority of the peo
ple of the United States are not responsible—
.at least not responsible in the sense of having
intended them. And there can be no question
that if that majority could. now act directly
and fully upon public Wain, they would de
oree immediate peace, union and lawful rule,
as they existed in former times; apd would
put down, or put aside, all who would venture
to oppose, or would seek to delay, the realiza
tion cif these great objects. The Abolitionists
proper never commanded a majority even in
the North; the Republican Rom was in a mi
nority of nearly a million of rot es at the Presi
dential election of 1860, and it' is believed that
a majority oV the Southern people were op
posed to secession even after that election, and
abandoned their Unionism reluctantly, under
the pressure of subsequent events.
In point of fact, active earnest minorities,
North and South, have seized power and con
trolled the course of events, and the great mass
of the people "Bate amieared to be unable to
direct their own destinies and secure their own
welfare_ They were prepared at the outset of
the rebeijion to havemaininined peace by some
settlement of existing difficulties, and if , the
Crittenden Compromise had been submitted to
them it would have been promptly and gladly
accepted. But that occasion was permitted to
peas by those who could ht►ve improved it.
War came, and for more thhn two years a great,
intelligent and free people, most earnestly
desiring peace, have been slaughtering _each
other, accumula ing enormous burdens of debt
to press upon themselves and upon tiatire
generations, and have not vet been able to ex
tricate themselves from the difficulties that

nine thousand dollars in his possession, and he
ventured a thousand of it in faro. The fourth
night of Prodowbow's tenure at the hotel found
him without a penny, borrowing money to tel

was honored at sight by said banker's corres

and won fourteen thousand dollars. He sailed
