Elements Of tho Opposition, j
It is amusing to observe the avidity with
which tho hatrccgenous compounds ofrc-
publicanism always assail good Demo- ,
cbats. Ihis principlo is unmistakeably
exemplified, by tho opposition Presa, in
their abuse of the Editor of this Journal.
Tho mero fact, that his namo has been an
nounced for an office to which ho has not
yet been nominated and possiblynovcrwill
be has elicited a general howl amongst
tho mongrel hordo of the defamers of tho
1. Dr. Bnowzn of tho "Montour Jlmtr.
ican," lets fly his small dogs of war.
Ho and they aro both entirely harmless.
Wo regard him, generally, as a clever fel
low, but rather pity his condition, a3 a
"natural and acquired know-nothing."
2. Bob Frick, of tho "Miltonian,"
yelps m tho rear. Like all political apos
tates, he has a holy horror, for independ
ent democrats. Bob, you may now abido
and glory in your own shamo.
3. Dr. Jou.v, of tho Republican, said
ho would havo a word to say, whon wo got
tho nomination- Ever anxious to falsify
his word, ho cannot await tho result of that
event, but has commonccd his work of
vituperation. Such abuse is tho best praiso
he can bestow.

About tho 15th of last April, when tho

Tho North Branch Domocrat.
Col. D. C. Kitciien, has issued a new
Demooratio paper, under tho abovo title,at
Tunkhannock. It is neatly printed and
soundly dcmocratio. Wo wish it success
as such a ihect is greatly needed there,
and we trust it will bo liberally supported
by tho evcr-faithful Democracy of Wyo
ming. A Dcmocratio Meeting, will bo held
in Berwick, on Saturday, tho 7th of Sep

is ior tho ratification of tho Domocratio
Nominations. Tho "camp-fires'' of tho
Democracy of Columbia aro burning

Praise Womiiv. Ono of tbo acts of
Congress wo can most cordially approve,
and that is tho increase of two dollars per
month on tho pay of soldiers, sailors and
mariners tho men who havo to do the
hard drudgery and fight the battles of our
country. This will niako their pay thir
teen dollars per month, and wo aro only
sorry it is not twenty. This addition to
tho monthly pay will incrcass tho expens
es, on a forco of 300,000, seven millions
per annum, or, on a forco of 000,000 men
twelvo millions. But this tho people will
cheerfully pay, because thoy know that it
is appropriated to a good and necessary
purpose Thoro is to bo no jncrcaso of
the officers' pay.
Hon. C. L. Vallaudlgham.
Tho Republican war press 13 very loud
in its denunciation of lion. 0. L, Vallan-
nghaditn, of Ohio, as a Secessionist. By
this sweeping charge theso Republican ed
itors provo that thoy are cither ignorant
or dishonest) they cither havo not road
Mr. Yallandinoham's speeches in tho rc
cent Congress, or thoy wilfully misrepre
sent his position. Any ono who can pe
ruse his recent great effort, and not fed
convinced that ho h an honest and sincere
friend to this country, must possess an in
tellect devoid of understanding.
The position of Mr. Vallandigham,says
tho Carbon Democrat, as a patinotio and
ablo statesman, is certainly n proud one,
when conparcd with that of such miscre
ants ns Lovcjoy and Lane men, may it
bo known, whom theso samo Republican
editors laud to tho skies. Only two days
beforo tho adjournment of Congress (Sat
urday last) an incident occurred which il
lustratcs tho characters of Mr. Vallandig
ham and Lovciov perfectly. A resolution
was beforo tho Houso instructing tho Prc3
ident to appoint a day of fasting and pray
cr. Lovcjoy moved to amend by adding
to tho sorvicos to bo observed on the day
in question, tho reading of tho CSth Chap
tor of Isaiah ; whereupon Mr. A'allandig-
ham DUffccstcd Christ's Sermon on tho
Now wo hopo every ono of our readers
will refer to tho Bihlo and read Christ's
sermon ; it will bo found in tho Oth , Gth
and 8th Chapters of Matthew. It certain
ly contains a lesson for tho times ; and is
ono of tho best endorsements Mr. Vallan-
dingham need ask for his recent manful
stand beforo an infuriated, crazy Congress,
in behalf of pcaoo and justice. On tho
other hand tho proposition of Mr. Lovojoy
is but another evidence of tho base uses to
which ho and'his confreres aro endeavor
ing to apply the present war, as well
just laws both of God and man.
We givo one or two extracts from the
chapters abovo mentioned, to show what
motives prompted tho two members of Con
gross in their rcspetivo motions, and our
readers can judgo which was tho "righto
ou3 cause." In Isaiah, 5S-vi., wo Cud the
"Is not this tho fast that I have chosen?
to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo
tho heavy burdens, and to let tho oppress
ed go free, and that ye break every yoke?"
In plain English, then, Mr. Lovcjoy
would havo tho wholo nation kneel down
and pray God for tho success of our arms,
that we might be cnabhd to abolish and
destroy the institution of slavery, and he
little cares how much blood, or how much
troasuro is lost in tho conflict. This i3
Lovcjoy, whom tho Republicans regard
as a second Daniel.

A MILLION AND A QUARTER TER DAY !
In a debate in ths Houso of Represent
atives, on tho Gth inst., on tho bill adding
four dollars per month to tho pay of the
non-commissioned officers, musicians and
privates of tho volunteers, mariners, sea
men, and ordinary seamen, and approvinc
and legalizing all tho illegal and uncon
stitutional acts of the President, Mr. Ste-
vens moved to reduce tho proposod in
ereaso of pay from four to two dollars.
During tho discussion he remarked that
tho expenses of tha Government wcro at
tho rato of a million and a quarter per
day, and that he eould not seo whoro the
money was to como from henco his n
mendmcnt. Wo do not wonder that oven Mr. Stev
ens, who has never beforo boon known to
hesitate at the reckless expenditure of pub
lio money, is staggered at tho magnitude
of tho debt which is now, even tho thrcsh
hold of this civil war, staring the country
in tho face. If expenses are at tho rato
of ono million and a quaatcr per day, and
wo suppose Mr. S. would rather underrate
than ovcrrato them, tho expenses of a year
will bo FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY-SIX
MILLIONS, TWO HUNDRED
AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!
or $14,70 for every man, woman and
child whito and black in tho wholo
thirty-four States of tho Union ! No won
der, wo repeat, that tho Chairman of tho
Committee of Ways and Moans stood a
ghast at tho prospect, and that ho could
not tell whero all this vast amount of mon
ey was to como from.
Ono year of this civil war, according to
tho abovo cbtimato, will cost as much as
tho seven yoars' war of tho Revolution,'
tho thrco years' war with Great Britain,1
and tho two years' war with Mexico, com
bined ; and should it continuo for two or1
mrco years, wuat men wo leave our
readers to make tho calculation for themselves.
For the Columbia Demotrat,

I havo failed to rcccivo your paper for
somo timo, and I now writo for thopurposo
of asking you to send it to me, and nlsoto
givo you a short account of our movements.
Whilo yet in Camp Curlin, tho eight ar
tillery companies thcro, were formed into
a regiment, and thoy elected R. H. Rush,
of Philadelphia, Colonel ; 0, T. Campbell
Lieut. Col. Capt. Lewis, Senior Major,
and Capt. Datiforth, Junior Major. This
is tho first Aitillery Regiment over formed
in tho United States, and it reflects much
credit on Pennsylvania, to know that alio
has been the first Stato to mako a move in
that direction, Since reaching this city
I havo learned that Col, Rush declines tho
appointment, as ho intends to take chargo
of n Regiment of Cavalry, On Monday
last we wero sworn into tho United States
service, after an inspection of clothing and
equipments, and tho following day wcro
paid up till tho first of tho month. In tho
afternoon tho wholo regiment, with their
gun3, moved out of camp to tho rail road.
Several hours wcro occupied in loadiug
tho guns on tho cais, thcro being about 08
pieces, mo?tly six-ponndcrs. By somo
bad arrangement or other,it was ten o'clock
before wo got started, Tho men wcro in
good spirits, besides having a largo quan
tity stowed away in their cantoon3. All
wcro glad to got away from Camp Curtin,
whero somo of us havo been incarcerated
for thrco months. It was near day-light
when wo reached York, whcro wo stopped
for somo time. Soon after reaching tho
Maryland line, picket guards made their
appearance, and tho blackened timbers of
somo of tho bridges further demonstrated
that wo were in tho outskirts of Scccssia.
However, this was tho only cvidonco. On
all sides tho greetings wero much more en
thusiastic than in Pennsylvania. On al
most every residence waved tho stars and
stripes, whilo men, women and children
cauio forth from their homo to bid us God
speed I think it must havo boon known
that wo wcro coniiug as they seemed pro
pared for us. Even tho darkies in tho
fields, or aloug the road by tho sides of
their masters, took off their hats and shou-
ted for tho Union and tho Constitution,
though that Constitution makes property
of them. Many of tho men expected to
recognize Maryland as soon as they cross-
ed the lino, by the effects of that "terrible

and filth, a desolate country and blighted
crops, thoy saw a prosperous population,,

I Those nro somo of tho christian princi
ples taught by our fcsaviour in this sermon;
and theso wero tho teachings of pcrtco and
justico which Mr. Vallamlighnm honestly
desired to inculcate into tho hearts of tho
people, who havo reveled in blood already
too long. Hero is tho contrast ; ono a
bloodthirsty warrior, intent upon destroy
ing the law j tho other n follower after
poaco and humanity, intent "not to destroy
but to fulfill" the law, and whoso greatest
anxiety is that "ono jot or ono tiltlo Bhall
in no wise pass from tho law," or tho Con
stitution of our fathers ; who would pre
serve a Union in poaco, and not destroy
it in bloody carnage.
An Auolition Threat. Wo havo
had tho subjoined letter in our possession
for tho last three weeks, and refrained
for publishing it, and tho hopo that the
cowardly scoundrel who penned it and
he is known would attempt to put his
threat into execution ) for noting would
afford us moro gratificaton than to havo
tho ploasuro of knocking tho scurvy fell
ow's teeth down hi3 throat. Tho letter
was written and endorsed in this city,
mailed to Philadelphia under cover to the
Postmaster thcro, and ro-mailcd to this
place on tho next day when wo received
it in tho Post Offico. Wo publish it ver

Adjournment or Congress. Cong
ress adjourned the special session on Tues
day last. Amongst other things they did
not do was tho refusal, on tha part of tho
Senate, to pass tho resolution endorsing
all the acts, legal and illegal, constitut iona
and unconstitutional, of President Lin
coln. The Republicans had the will to
do it, but thoy did not wish to seo their
names spread upon tho record in favor of
such a measure. It would "luk to ugly, '
as an old Hibernian friend of our's once
said in Court; besides it would be brought
up in judgement against them at a futuro
day. Mr. Dueckinridcie and other
Democratic Senators dared them to tho
issue, but they wouldn't "too tho mark,"
and Mr. Lincoln has to go unendorsed
by his party friends.
