SUBSCRIBED FOR IN 'CLUBS OF NOT LESS

We have been compelled to ram the club titibioriptlon
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save our
selves from actual lois. Paper has risen; including
taxes, about twenty-five per sent., and IS still rising;
and when we tell our Democratic friends, eandid/y, that
we can no longer afford to sell the Weekly Perrier AID
Dirosr. at' one dollar a year. and must add fifty cents or
stop the publication, we trust they will appreciate our
posttipn, and, instead of withdrawing their subscrip
identygo to work Ali 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 in anxious desire to pro
inote its interests, with some experience and a moderate
degree of ability, can be made serviceable hereaftdr, the
Weekly Parstor AND Union win 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
fur inCressod anciuragement in this great enterprise,
and appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to
lend us his aid in running our sapecription 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 same reasons which induce us to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Daily papet, the
price of which lb 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 mann in any diminution of our daily circulation,
yet, were we certain that such would be the cones
quenee, we shifuld still be. compelled to make it, or suf
fer a ruinous loss. 'Under these circumstances we must
thaw ourselves upon the generosity, or, rotbv, 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 CLUES
We shell also take it as an especial favor if our present

MONDAY MORNING, SEPT. 21, 1863.
JAMES F. SHUNK, ESQ.,
Or YORK )
At the 'monster Mace Meeting in Independence
Square, Philadelphia, on the 17th of 'Septem
hlr. Stunk said that it was eminently proper
that the Democracy of Pennsylvania should
assemble at this time bud on this spot. The
time was the anniversary of the adoption of
the : Constitution of the United States ; the spot
was the birthplace of that great law. Here,
if anywhere, in these days of disaster and op
-pression, when the charter of our liberties has
been supplanted by a "higher law," interpre
ted and discerned by Abolition seers—when
the mere will of the President avails to strip
the citizen of the securities for which his fa
thers paid the best blood of the world—here is
the place, ehis is the day is which to assert One°
nlore the ancient liberties of this Republic.
The Democratic party have always been the
party of the Constitution and the Union. They
have held fast to them in season and out of
season.—in time of war as well as in time of
peace. Through all the long period in which
they held control of this government, and were
the masters of its power and patronage, the
rights of no State were invaded—the liberty
Of no citizen was abridged—the press and the
rostrum were free—th e forts which frown along
our coast were a terror to every foreign foe,
but not prisons for the free born citizens of our
own land. In those days of peace and pros
perity the people were taught by our leaders
thatthis government was founded upon con
cession and compromise—that by the matchless
wisdom of the great men who framed our Con
etitetion, Separate and. .eovereign political coin.
munities, scattered over half a continent, dif
fering not more widely in climate than in
institutions, laws and habits of thought—were
united under one Government—a Government
holding only a few great powers, and having
relation to only a few large objects—but strong
enough. to maintain our honor and dignity
abroad and peace at home—potent to assert
the'rights of all these States, without infring
ing :upon the liberties of any one of them. As
long as the teachings of our statesmen were
respected, as long as the corneas of the Con
°Mutton were honored, as loaf as State kept
faith with State, we continued to-grow great,
and three years ago we stood, if not foremost,
side by side with the master Powers of the
world. We have now been taught by the sad
dest experience through which any nation evet
-peeled, theivisdom of that policy which kept
s together so long. The lessons which, in
bur madness, we refused to listen to from the
tOttellee Of grave and reverend statesmen, we
read now in letters of blood. They are burned
into our souls by 'the fire of gunpowder,
sounded in our ears by the roar of artillery.
We feel now what: in better days we scorned fo
fear. The industry of the land, instead of be
logremployed in the cultivation of the soil and
in those peaceful arts which contributed to the
wealth and comfort of the whole nation, is now
diverted to the manufacture of tools for slaugh
ter—Ao the forging of bayonets afid the mould
ing of guns—to the invention of new and Sa
tanic methods' by which brother may shed
brother's blood. The fields which in Demo
cratic days were yellow with harvests,are, in
this Abolition millenium, red and soaked with
the blood of the reapers. The policy of our
party saved the Union while it lasted—that
policy only can restore it. We were called
"Union Savers," and sneered at by the wretch
es who now hold power, because we sought to
maintain the integrity of the Republic. We
I are called "Copperheads" and "traitors" by
the same people now, because we are bending
our might to restore it.
Mr. Shunk then adverted to the base slanders
of the Abolitionists .concerning the character
and opinions of Judge Woodward. " They tell
us," said he " that he is th secessionist—that
in case of 'his election he will carry Pennsyl
vania into the Southern Confederacy." Fellow
citizens, the man' who - makes 'this assertion is
either a consummate knave or an incorrigible
ass—he is moreover a traitor, giving to the en
emythe very aid and comfort which he wants. If
Judge Woodward, aeon of Pennsylvanitti-born
upon our soil, and habituated to its honors—
the chosen chief of a, great party—without an
acre of land or a drop of kindred blood within
the whole area of the South—is bent upon ally
ing this Commonwealth with the Southern Con
federacy, and the leaders of the rebellion nan
be made to believe it, will it not' put fresh
strength into their armies'? Will it not nerve
them fora longer struggle and for battles more
desperate than any which they have yet fought? ,
They believe no such thing—they know
better but this is not the fault of the Aboli
tionists.. They have steadily represented since
the beginning of this war that .the Democratic
party was in alliance with the rebel States.
They have reiterated this miserable slander in
the face of the fact that a majority of our armies
are Democrats— that the greatest General the
war has produced—the idol of the people—the
beat beloved of the soldier—the hero of Antis
tam„ and the efielor of the. Capital—George D-
M'Clellan, is. a Democrat. [Loud and con
tinued cheers.] From such hardy falsifiers, it
would be too much to ask justice , for Wood
ward. Fellow-citizens, while there is .no dan—
ger that Judge . . Woodward contemplates any
such folly as his slanderers impute to liim,there
really is great danger that, under. the manage
ment of tiovernor Curtin, the lines of Jeff.
Davis will be extended over our borders. Twice
have rebel armies entered our State. The first
time Curtin politely allowed them to leave un
molested. The second .time he spent the pre
cious hours which .should have been given to
preparations for defence in begging and plead
ing with the powers at Washington for leave
to call out his own militia. Meantime, by the
blessing of God, there were two Governors, be
' longing to the despieed and dieloyel•" Copper
heads," who knew their rights—exercised
them without going on their knees to Mr.
Stanton for permission to act—and sent the
cohorts of Democratic New York and New Jer
'bey to defend the soil of Pennsylvania, while
her own imbecile and " loyal" Executive was
trembling .on his marrow-bones before the
throne at Washington. You could expect noth
ing better from him. The man iwho has suf
fered free citizens of Pennsylvania to be kid
napped by the Federal Government and carried
out of this Commonwealth is not the person to
keep, rebels from coming into it. A new day
'will dawn on Ws when Woodward faked
"his "seat. He helped to make our free Coned
tutienfor many years he has righteously ex
pounded our laws. He will take care when he
'comes to be our 'Governor that that Constitu
tion and those laws shall be , respected by ruf
fians high and low=-in office as well as out of
'office—by people in Washington as well as by
people everywhere else. No deputy kidnapper,
aratedwrith a diepateh from the War Ilepart•
meat—no rebel' general, armed With iristruc
lions from Jeff. Davis, will then dare to cross
PRICE WO CENTS
Mr. Shunk then expressed the most perfect
confidence in our success—a Confidence founded
on lettere and conversations with prominent
men in communication with the Central Com
mittee, from every section of the State. He
believed that every vote cast for the party at
the coming . election was a vote for the return
of peace and the re-establishment of the Union
under the Constitution, and of liberty within
the bounds of la*.
[Prom the Cleveland Plain Dealer.]
In contemplating the various phases of po
litical affairs and observing the rise and decay
of parties in this country, we are profoundly
impressed with the vitality of the old Demo
cratic organization. Scores of political asso
ciations have been formed, played their brief
but exciting part in the drama, and passed
away from the stage to give rise to new-experi
ments on the part of leading men and masses,
but throughout all these mutations, one party
alone has set time at defiance and preserved its
traditional natne and policy. There is a reason
for this. It lies down at the very bottom of
our political system. It is, in short, that the
Democracy has been, and is to day, the people's
party. On the solid foundation of the peciple's
love and confidence, it was first erected, and
•on that foundation it rests securely, when
other contrivances of men to obtain and pre
serve power in themselves have been shifting
forever and forever, like the sands of the sea.
When Mr. Jefferson, deeply impressed with the
abuses of consolidated powerin the old world,
had interwoven , with our system those muni
mente of personal liberty which are established
by the amendments tb the 'Federal Constitu
tion, he laid the foundation for a political order
whose chief mission should be to watch over
and secure from aggression these great rights,
and which should be constantly strengthened
by the masses in the • good work. The old
Whig organization was• illustrated by the lar
gest wealth, the highest, social, influence, and
a great share of the cultivated intellect if the
land. In spite of theSe signal advantages, it
gradually declined, and at last perished. It
was a most respectable, and it was also a na
tional, party, but it did •net expand with the,
widening area of the country nor with the new
issues that began to tax the thoughts and
labors of public mod' It gave way, therefore,
to other • political societies, but it was not
solely owing to a certain sluggish and con
tracted vision, that the Whig party ceased to
grow. A latent cause of this slow and certain
wasting "away of the body, was that it wanted,
in a measure, active sympathy with the great
mama. It prided itself upon its wealth, its
social caste, and its intellectual culture. It
was not a party , that ever taught indifference
to the laws, or treachery to their obligations
—in which respect it is in shining contrast
with the Republican organisation—out it was
apt to lean too strongly to the side of Govern
ment, and to turn the cold shoulder to the pop
ular wishes. Herein it totally failed, and
herein it , provided for its own speedy dissolu
tion.. The people outgrew it. It ceased to be
re-inforced and recruited. Sectional ideas
began to rally about them thousands of indis
creet or vicious adherents. The Whig party
was not strong enough to combat these new
dangers. its shield was too narrow, where
fore it ceased to be. Let it rest well in its
great tomb.. For all its shortcomings, it was a
noble party, and has left a high and compara
tively unblemished name.
The Democracy was born to good look. It
was its rare fortune to have its. love for the
people, at the .outset.of our government, blend
ed with attachment for the Constitution of the
United States. As this instrument was so
shaped as to provide most admirably for the
liberties of the people, the• party which has
ever in view the constant preservation of the
One, has au equal interest *the preservation
of the other. If the constitution had been de
ficient in those careful provisions for the pop
ular safety, the Democracy would never have
had an affection for the instrument. If it had
not no wonderfully established the limits of
power vested in public agents, and so explicit
ly guarded the rights ' of the States and people
against aggression, the Democracy would have
obeyed the instrument, but they would never
have felt for it that burning and ardent attach
ment, which has made them its especial guar
diens and exponents daring our entire history
as a nation. Glorious privilege ! We are for
tified in our'regard for the brave masses who
have made this country "blossom as the rose,"
by the great public chdliter which first enabled
these masses as a united people to achieve such
wondrous results. Sol lt.'has happened, that
popular liberty and Constitutional law have
become watoh-words on our party banner,
blazoned ever on its ample folds. They have
become rallying notes in our public discussions,
the sign -boards, the beacon lights, the grand
land marks of our policy as an old, stable and
national party. This is the marvellous good
fortune of the Democracy. It can never per
ish so long as it clings so these landmarks,
nor can the laws and liberties of the. people
perish so long as 'they steadily re-inforce the
good old party on this.wise career.
The Democracy.! There is something elec
tric about 'that appellation. It is blended
with our greatest civil and military achieve
ments. It is blended with the 'eagle flight of
the young nation from one ocean to the other.
It is crowned with the memories of statesmen
and heroes. Under its auspices the country
steadily won a foremost place amolig the na
tions of the earth, and if ever this nation is
to survive the shocks of oivil convulsion, still
a free and nnitedpeople, it will be under the
fortunate star of the same old law-loving and
people-loving party. May it be perpetual!
THE SOL.DrEE VOTE.
On this subject," after some preliminary re
marks on the decision of the Supreme Court,
concurred in by Judge Reed, a very ardent
Republiana, the Clinton Democrat Bays :
The Democrats will go further than Bays
dare. They will give the soldiers
of the army the right to elect their own leader
—their own general in- chief. The Republican
administration at Washington denies to the
Army of the Potomac, one of the bravest and
best in the world, the privilege of .being"com
mended by the man they want, yet the Repub.
Loans have the effrontery to set themselves up
as Peculiarly the soldiers' friend
The truth is, the Republican/I, as a party
have. no true frendship for the soldiere as a
body. Lincoln sad'Curtin bOth literally sur
round them with robberbands; in the shape of
army contractors, Sutlers, &0., 'who plunder
and defraud them - at every opportunity. No
matter how much the thieves are exposed, the
dignitaries named.still keep them in position,
and thereby become as criminal as they—par
fit*s criminis, as thelawyers say.

Thipo7 of the Republicans in favor of sol
dier voting arises simply from the get that
they expect their' administrati G n to officer the
army with Republican generals, (as hue been
done-to a very great extent,) who will prohibit
thti dirmilalion'of - Temocratic newspapers and
documents within their .respective commands,
(as le now.generally ddne,) and admit Repub
lican and exclude fDernooratic orators from
their lines, so that the soldier may see only
the Republican side of the question. By this
means they hope to command hip vote, end it
is only for these reasons that. they desire to
give Lim such right.
If upon the approach of the election it may
be deemed safe arid practicable to permit every
Pennsylvania eoldier—we KIT every one, not
only Republicans but ALL—tO tOttlth to their
respective abodes to vote, we say let that be
done, It would, be a just compliment to the
manly soldier. nut, if any, let all come. To
pick out the Republicans to come home, and
require the Detnocrs.ts to remain in rank,
would be •it gross and indecent fraud. Let
everything be fairly done. Then the Demo
erste will not enmplain though every soldier
should vote against them.
The same paper contains the following:
A Sor.ntro's Voica.—A letter written to Mr.
henry Shaffer, of Sinnemaboning, by Mr.
Smith Beers, formerly a Republican, now in
the army as a soldier, has been forwarded to
us for publication. Its length and the crowded
state of our columns at the time of its recep
tion prevent this, but we make the following
emphatic extract from it, to wit;
" Brother Shaffer, exhort every Democrat to
go to the polls this fall and do his duty WITH
A WILL ; for on the exertions of the Democracy
depends the fate of our government, Alt.homh
we do not elect a President this fall, yet we
elect a Governor, who may hold old ABE and
his Cabinet in check until we can get a Demo
cratic Preeident reinstated, - Then we may
hope that the government will be resuscitated,
and the old Constitution will again be the
supreme Jaw of the land. May God bless the
Democrats, and give them good success, and
may they yet succeed in saving the govern
ment, is a sincere prayer of a soldier.
Noble words fitly spoken I
The most persistent and magnificent lying
of this whole war has been in connection with
the conduct of the negro troops at the siege of
Port Hudson. It was the first occasion in
which Vle negroes were engaged in the field,
and the Abolitionists seem to have he.d their
romances already to circulate as soon as the
fight was over. Even. General Banks lent his
name to will to the public delusion. We have
already given the official figures of the 'killed
and wounded on that occasion, which showed
very ordinary fighting, but the following ex
t-act from a letter written by the colonel of
the Fifty-Second Massachusetts Volunteers
settles the matter :
"The reports of the fighting of negro sol
diers at Port Hudson on the 27th of May,
which had gained currency throughout the
country—representing them, as having charged
over the enemy's parapets, leaped over their
siege guns, bayoneted the gunners, thrown
away their own guns and seized the toe with
their hands, tearing their flesh with their teeth,
and finally retreating, leaving six hundred of
their number, out of eight hundred, dead in the
trencheswere gross exaggerations. And I re
peat it here, they were gross• exaggerations ;
and every officer and private in the department
who understands the facts at all kncwi that they
were gross exaggerations. I furthermore said,
in the presence of gentlemen in Cairo, when
speaking of the comparative merits of white
soldiers and black, that I was of the. opinion
that there was no race of men existing which
made better soldiers than the genuine Anglo-
Saxon ; 'that the Anglo-Saxon, I wag satisfied,
made a better soldier than the African. I still
adhere to that opinion ; but I do not wish to be
understood by this as opposing the use of ne
gro soldiers. Far from it. lam decidedly in
favor, and have been from the commencement
of the war, of employing meets (and as many
of them as possible) to the best possible ad
vantage to the cause, as fast as they can be in
diiced to come within 'our lines. But whether
they can be made of better service to us as, sol
diers or as laborers—with guns in their hands
instead of spades and "curry combs"—is a
question ; but, at the same time, I recognize it
as being a question for the government to de
termine, and not for me. That negro soldiers
rendered moat signal service in the trenches be
fore Port Hudson, no one acquainted with the
facts will deny ; but that they there "fought
like devils," performing wonders, either with
the bayonet or with their "teeth;" is what I
have no reason to hence.
I am, respectfully yours,
H. S. GRBENLIKE,
CoL Com'g Fifty-Second Man.
This brandy-bibbing Abolitionist and trai
tor, who represents Michigan in the Senate of
the United States, made a speech at Cleveland
on the 15th, in which he said:
«I THANK GOD WE WERE DEFEATED
AT BULL RUN."
Upon this the Plain Dealer remarks : •
"Of course you thanked God too, no doubt,
when you came back from• the Peninsula
and defamed that true soldier, General M'-
You thanked God when you obtained hie
You thanked God when you 'invested in

No !in the language - of Wilkes to Lord Thor

He will see you ckimned first."
THE PROSPECT IN PERRY.--If am be any

this county it will be the fault of the Demo
crats themselves. There never was a victory
more certainly within their grasp. Nearly
every township is organiied, and the changes
are numerous in our favor. It is a rare aceur
rence to hear of a Democrat changing to an
Abolitionist. It is true, the opposition are
