We have been compelled to rain the clitb fillbeeription
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save our-
selves from actual loss. Paper has risen, including
taxes, abput twenty-five per cent., and is still tieing;
an d w hen we tell our Bemocratie friends, candidly, that
we can no longer afford to ee l s the gripikly PATRIOT AND
UNION 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 with a will to inerease ane list in every
county is the State. We have endeavored, and shall
continue our efforts, to make the paper useful es a party
organ, and welcome as a news messenger to every fam
fly. We flatter ourselves that It has not been without
some influence in producing the glorious revolution iu
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 au anxisum desire to pro.
mote its interests, with Rome 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 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 enpecription list up to
twenty or thirty tholatland. The expense to eash indi.
vides' 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 mecum.
The same reasons which induce ne to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Daily paper, the
price of which is also increased. The additional coat to
each subscriber will be but trifling; and, while we ean
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 suf
fer a ruinous loss. Under these ONGIMISteIIGOO we must
throw ourselves upon the generosity, or, rather, the
justice of the public, and abide their verdict, whatever
it may be.
The period for which meaty of eitt inbaelibers have
paid for their paper being on the eve of expiring, we
take the liberty of issuing this notice, reminding them

To Messrs. Rountfort, Kreiter and othors
I am informed that I have been unanim , oithly

regret to say that i ani forced to decline the
nomination by reason. of an affection of my
eyes, the pain of whioh of late is greatly ag
gravated by the atmosphere of a warm or clone
room, and if elected I could not attend to the
perkrmance of my , duties. But in declining
the nomination, I maybe permitted to say that
under other circumstances , I would gladly have
accepted it, because I am persuaded that upon
the success of the Democratic party this fall ,
in a great measure depends the future peace
and prosperity of the country. It is scarcely
necessary to inquire who brought this war on
the country. History will tell that. Every
reasonable and candid man will admit thatlfor
the last fifteen years great bitterness has ex
isted between the Abolitionists of the North
and the slaveholders, of the South; and every
candid man will admit that this bitterness
finally produced the rebellion; and every hon
est man will admit that in this bitterness in
the North towards the .9oulh, the Democratic
party in the North did not participate, and if
this is true, then it is as clear as light that the
Democrats in the North had nothing to do in
bringing on this rebellion. * If history will
show one truth in regard to the rebellion, it
will ehow that the Union men in the South and
Democrats in the North are, of all men, the
most faultless in regard to this war. And this
history is written already; it is to be found in
the newspapers and pamphlets published with
in the last year. between the Lakes and the
Rio Grande; , in the speeches in Congress; in
the addresses of Smithern fireeaters and in the
lectures and sermons of the New . England
clergy. I say this hijtory is written already,
any there it stands and cannot be un-written
by any human hand- 7 -and that the, Union men
of the South and the Democrats in the North
battled long and hard, lint , unetiocessfully, to
avert the war and for the preservation of the
Union, is a fact that will. standout in futpure
hietery hold, prominent 60 distinot. •2hese
same, men are the truet,tnion men now, and I
confidently believe that if the government shall
ever lie restored, ltwill be by these same Winn
,en ; for it. ia o clear to my mind that the, Gov
ernmentcanstiot he restoredby putting down the

elections for members of Congress, and send
their members on to Washington to participate
in the government ; nor can the Union men in
the South plead-with their leaders for an end
of the war co long as their leaders can point
to the North and say, "There, with the excep
tion of New York and New Jersey, is a solid
phalanx of Abolition States." But the Union
men in the South must have encouragement to
return to the Union. Let the Democratic party
this fall succeed in the heavy Northern States,
and then the Union men of the South can rise
against their present ruler's ; can point`to the
North as willing to do them justice; can lay
down their arms and return to their allegiance.
In this way, in my judgment, we
-may not only
end the war, but restore the Government in less
than six months. But if the Abolition Re,
publican party is to succeed in the North this
fall, then the Union men of the South will have
no encouragement to come back, and then I
agree with President Lincoln that we need
'not be over sanguine of a speedy final tri
mph," but this awful war may'go on for years
WM. DOCK, Jr., & Co
SATURDAY MORNING, SEPT. 26,1863.
DECLINATION OF HERMAN ALRICKS,
I regard the Union men of Kentucky as true
Union men, and they differ in tote with the
Presidet, in regard to the conduct of the war.
They see that the course purued is not only
for the suppressio'n of the rebellion, but for
the extinetion of slavery, and , that such a
course is not likely to restore the Government.
There the true Union men stand side by side
with the Democratic party of Pennsylvania,
and prove most clearly that we are right.
Again, in regard to the Western States, ar
bitrary arrests have been made in many in
stances which, in my opion, are totally unjus
tifiable. Of all those arrested by order of
Government, few, if any, have been tried.—
When the Constitution authorized the suspen
sion of the writ of habeas copes in time of re
bellionit authorized it in order that the prisoner
might be held for trial; not that after a man
has been arrested and imprisoned he can be
refused a trial or hearing altogether; and dis
charged without knowing why, or for what cause
lee was arrested, and at whose instance; for this
there is no shadow of law, not sanction in the
Constitution. In my judgment, such proceed
ings are little better than the rebellion itself.
It never entered the minds of those who framed
the Constitution, that all the principles in re
gard to personal security and personal liberty
which lie at the foundation of our government
should be disregarded, and private citizens ar
rested, imprisoned, and then discharged, never
to know the cause of their arrest or the name
of the informer. A man may as well be Biked
by the rebels and dragged off to Richmond, to
to be imprisoned there, as to be seized in 'his
dwelling by a file of soldiers and dragged off
to Baltimore or Fort Warren, to be imprisoned,
and afterwards discharged without a hearing.
If at►y free men are to be found willing to sus
tain such an administration, I am not one of
the number—but ; on the other hand, I hope
and trust that every Democrat in this State,
as he values his country and his liberty, will
use his "best efforts to secure the success of
the Democratic party at the approaching tied

UNION SENTIMENT AND SPIRIT IN
To show what it is within the power of the
Federal administration to accomplish by the
exercise of a liberal and just policy, instead of
the unconstitutional,fanatical policy which they
have evidently adopted and declare their in
tention to adhere to, we subjoin, from the Ra
leigh (North Carolina) Standard, the pronceed
ings of several meetings held in different por
tions of that State. We are sure our readers
will thank us for giving them the opportunity
of looking over these proceedings and seeing
the practical workings of the Union sentiment
which is so rapidly spreading in one of the
largest and most important States of the.Con
federaey. North Carolina once detached from
the rebellion and brought back into the Union,
the Confederacy would not hold together three
months ; and this the Federal administration
has within its power to accomplish by simply
receding from its present policy and adopting
sound, statesmanlike, patriotic, national views.
Their failure'to do so, at a moment so oppor
tune, will be recorded against them as the
greatest blunder and most unpardonable crime
of their ruinous and wicked reign :
In glancing through the columns of the
Standard the eye first strikes "Public Meeting
in Orange county," The proceedings are
signed by John C. Sykes, chairman, and An
derson P. Cotes, secretary. The main burden
of the preamble and resolutions is in denun
ciation of the treatment of.. North Carolina by
the Confederate Government, and then comes

savage, and unchristian war.

no man to represent us in the Congress of the
Confedprate States who declares himself op
posed to negotiation and a general Peace con
Yadkin county comes next, and the proceed

Resolved, That we favor a proposition of
peace to the enemy upon such terms as will
guarantee to us our rights upon an eqality
with the North.
Resolved, That we are opposed to any alli

From the Boston Courier
If the term c opperhead-implies, as we sup
pose, all those who are not itepublicans, there
are, as is well known, a very large proportion
in our armies which would certainly come un
der the designation thus opprobriously applied
to them. In general the 6 , thinking bayonets"
in our armies are most likely to be copper
as that term is used to describe the
friends of the Constitution and Union. We
believe it is because they are espeeially such
in the Army of the .Potomao that it has been
treated so shabbily by the Administration.
We find, in confirmation of our views, the
following article in the Troy PTISS, by which
it appears that a Democrat in the Army of the .
Potomac is a copperhead ; and that this class
does the fighting :

They say that there was a riot in Troy a short

I don't know what you call a Copperhead in

says he is a Democrat, he is, called a Copper

which the provost guard has been guilty of
another outrage, growing out of the following
circumstances eon of Robert 7.llMSeyr
of Donegal township, was drafted. &Ad duly re

This was all satisfactory to the marshal and .
the board, who ordered his discharge
made out, which was accordingly done, when
the young man returned home with .the die
charge papers in his pocket. On Monday last,
just as he was dismounting' from his team, he
was seized, by two armed men—members of
the provost guard—and ordered to come along
with them. Re remonstrated with them, pro
duced his discharge and informed them that
he was under the age required by law to come
within the limits of the draft. They rudely

He was instantly and cruelly handcuffed and
dragged to Stahlstown, there 'bound to
another man, and the two brought to Greens
burg. On being eonfrorited by the • Provost
Marshal, he again produced his papers of ex
emption. Ile was informed that'through neglect
of the clerks, the record of his discharge and
the reasons therefor, were not entered on the
books, and for thisle was so ruthlessly drag
