The " unqaistioWng".• ,. l:MpOrters:4 Lincoln
claim to be the os4 lciyaft men lathe cotin
try. Let ne see in what their loyalty consists.
Lincoln has shown his loyalty by violating
his oath of office, by trampling the Constitu
tion and laws under foot,,ity _sanding tenant'
thousands of white men to slaughter, for the
avowed purpose of setting the negroes free and
making them 'the equals, socially and politi
sadly, of their white liberators, by virtually
subverting the Government for the sake of con
centrating all power in his hands, in short by
every aot of oppression and lawlessness that a
tyrant could commit, and which only a tyrent
and traitor would commit.
Curtin has shown his loyalty by obsequious
obedience to Lincoln in all things demanded
by him, by endorsing Stanton's
. arbitrary ar
rests and by volunteering his support of that
officer in continuing and extending them, by
furnishing, through his.friends, shoddy cloth
ing to Pennsylvania soldiers, by enabling mam
moth railroad corporations and side specula
tors to swindle the Commonwealth out of fif
teen or twenty millions of dollars, and by other
Thousands of the most load and foulmouthed
Abolitionists have conclusively proven their
loyalty by Pobbing the U. S. Treasury of mil-
Ilene upon milllons of dollars since the war
began, which they are so anxious to continue;
Thad. Stevens proves his loyalty by ex
claiming, "God forbid" that "the Constitution"
should be , presorted, or "the Union" restored.
Many have proved their loyalty by "thank
ing God that the Federal forces were beaten at
Bull Run," because a victory then might have
ended the war and restored the Union without
emancipating the Waves.
A fellow named Wm. H. Armstrong, bases
his claim to loyalty upon an assertion he made
in a recent speech, "that it was better to lose
a battle in the field than the election in Penn
Jim Lane, the Kansas ruffian, is loyal be
cause he swore the "Union was played ont."
Lovejoy, because he would ‘, 4 spit upon the
Greeley, because he published in the Tribune
that the flag of the Union, the glorious Stara
and Stripes, was Haunting lie."
And so on to the end of the chapter. An
Abolitionist or Black Republican cannot be
found, from Lincoln down to Curtin, and from
Curtin down to his shoddy friends, whose
"loyalty" is not the very rankest disloyalty,
who is not opposed to the Constitution end the
Union, and consequently an enemy of his conn•
try and her institutions—working to betray
them, and loudly proclaiming his "loyalty"
to cover the infamous design.
Snyder County Alive—Great Dermocratic
Meeting at Middleburg.
We are gratified to learn, from an entirely
reliable source, that the Democracy of Snyder
county—and, we may add, Union—are alive,
active, bold and determined. The meeting
held at 'Middleburg on Tuesday last was a
rouser,in numbers exceeding the most sanguine
anticipations. Our informant assures us that
there were not less than two thousand present,
and the spirit of the people was excellent.
Two *reeks after the call for the Democratic
meeting was issued, the Abolitionists, as if in=
stigated by the spirit of mischief, and seeking
a disturbance, issued a cat for a meeting of
their party at the same plat* on the, same day.
Both meetings were, accordingly, held. The
Abolitionists erected their stand in the same
street and near the spot on which the Demo
crats had raised theirs. Seeing the disposition
of their opponets to create a row thus plainly
evinced, the Democrats retired to a grove near
the town, and everything passed' off peaceably.,
Their meeting, we are informed, was much
larger than that of the Abolitionists, and the
Democrats feel sanguine of making great in
roads upon the strength of their enemies at the
At all events they are determined to make a
big effort in that direction, and we know they
have the sagacity and the pluck to accomplish
a great deal when they put themselves to the
work in earnest. The speakers on the occasion
were IL Clay Dean, Eeq , of lowa, and Gen.
Wm. H. Miller, of this city. Both speakers
are said to have acquitted themselves admira
bly, leavingii most favorable impression upon
their auditors, and infusing into them fresh
zeal and energy. There will be no shrinking
from duty on the part of the Dernocrats, of
Snyder and Union, we are well satisfied. They
have put their shoulders to the wheel and they
will not slacken their efforts until they are
crowned with victory on the 13th of October.

A Ilmnechtng.—The renegade, Tom MacDo,-
ell, spoke for about twenty-five minutes at the
"Loyal League" Hall, on Monday night. In
the course of his remarks he said that he "did
not care which way the war would end, he now
had enough to emigrate to another country and
to support his wife and family during their
lives."'This, taken in connection with the
fact that he showed a handful of greenbacks
at a public house here, and remarked that was
what he was speaking for, illustrates at once
the reasons he has for ecoming one of the
"loyal." Tom hasialways been a leech, and
the evidence of the party with whom he is now
operating proves himself to be one of the most
corrupt men in the State. Greenbacks must
be exceedingly lush when such men--.the dregs
of the market—are bought up.

Under these oircumstiinces, Centre county,
in this contest, becomes an important point,
which must not be neglected. With abun

lack assistance. The Federal Administration
will supply him with any number of orators
from its long lest of unemployed officers, and
the shoddy men, who have robbed the treasu

will bleed freely in his cause.

that mark, and go beyond it if possible. For
this noble ambition they deserve the thinks

couVes, and all the aid that can be given them
to carry` out theit intention successfully.
There le one way, it strikes us, in which

There is to be a grand mass meeting of, the
friends of the Constitution and the Union—the
true Democraoy—at Bellefonte, on Saturday,

It should be a telling demonstration of the popu

administer a withering rebuke to Andrew G.
Curtin and his mercenary followers. In con

effect it cannot fail to have elsewhere, we re
commend to the Democrats of the adjoining
counties, as well as to those still further off,
who can possibly do so, to attend that mass

Enough of Rosecrans' army was detached and
sent into Ohio to electioneer and vote against
Vallandigham to have insured us a victory
over Bragg had they remained in the field and

Tan BORDER Taomas.—The threat of Jim
Lane to make the border counties of Missouri
a desert, has, it seems, been carried out to the
very letter. Order No. 11 of General Ewing,
the incendiary speeches of Lane and Jennison,
and the incursions of the Abolition iired legs,"
jayhawkers and thieves has had the effect of
( _depopulating all the counties bordering upon
Kansas. Bo terrified were the inhabitants,
that as a general thing they left their house
hold goods behind them, and made the best of
their way east, north and south. The Bt.
Louis papers state that at last accounts the
Kansas people from over the border, instead of
helping their distressed neighbors, were help
ing themselves to their furniture aud gooo.
Rapine and spoliation reigned supreme all
along the border, in which the Missourians
were the sole suff erers.
This state of affairs shows the beauties of
the rule of these Kansas and Missouri radicals.
They are eternally clamoring for severe meas
ures; nothing will put down the rebellion,
they claim, but ca stern and pitiless policy.—
They have certainly simeeded in restoring
quiet to the border counties, but it is the quiet
of the grave. A deputation of these radicals
from Kansas and Missenni waited upon Mr.
Lincoln, in Washington, yesterday, to indnao
him to give them complete power over those
two States. - If they sacceed, farewell to lan,

LEVIATHAN-.SECOND ADVANCE ON TEXAN.
The Morning Star, with New Orleans dates
to the 26th, has arrived at New Orleans.
The bar pilot who brought the Morning Star
out of Southwest Pass reported that the small
tug Leviathan, then lying under the guns of
the De Soto, was boarded the night before,
(September 21.) by a party of men who came
out in a email boat from shore, took possession
of the tug and carried her out to sea. Two or
three gunboats were lying by when the tug
was taken, but the loss was not discovered till
the Leviathan was several miles out in the
gtdf. At daylight the Di Seto signalled one
of the other gunboats, and both put out for
the tug. They overhauled her twenty miles
out, captured her, and brought her back with
all on board to the pass. The men whO at
tempted to " confiscate" the tug were brought
back in irons.
A second advance on Texas has commeneed,
the march to be made via. Berwick Bay, the
Teehe, New Iberia, and Sabine river. Sabine
