judge, from their incessant gabble, that
Mr. Cimimings must have distributed
those tongues among the Black Repub

We havo r.o advico to offer the pa
triotio editors of tho Piltston Gazette,
Their insinuations about peace ?;tf,&c.,aro
as falso as they aio cowardly. The fact,
that tbey published our comments on their
late notice of the "Democratic Party," will
atono for a multitudo of their political er
rors. Ikon City College, Pittsburgh,

its superior merits aro appreciated by a

Pennsylvanians in Battle, The
heat of tlio great battle at Fair Oaks, was
met by Ihc Pennsylvania volunteers, with
the sternest bravery manifested during
tho war ; ami they sustained the heaviest
loss. They fell back when exhausted
and overcome by superior numbers.
The record of that fight will ever recount
to their honor, for bravery, let who may
attempt to gainsay it.
"Phopeety in Man." Tho Republican
Wido Awako orators and newspapers, in
the campaigu of 1SG0, vehemently denied
that thcro was any "property in man."
With their usual consistency I they have
totally ignored that proposition, by purcha
sing the big&littlo nogroes of tho District
of Columbia at 8300 per bead ; and they
desire to extend tho purchaso by buying
all tho rest of four millions of slavo in tbo
Southern States at tho samo price per cap
ita. If negroes are not property, why wo
ask, throw away hundreds of millions of
thepublio troasury in tho purchase of them?
The Effect. Tho proneious effect of
the ultra abolitiou action of Congress upon
the Border States, is well illustrated in the
following extraot from a letter from Gen.
Leslie Coombs of Kentucky, dated the
10th of May :
We havo thirty thousand gallant volun
teers in the field , ready to die in the causa ;
aud yet, the ultra legislation now being
pressed by the Abolition Traitors in Con

Without paying any attention to tho ,

wo would bo, if wo should say that Dr.
John was in favor of tbo "Constitution as
it is and tho Union as it was," which abo

uisumonists originally, and so remaining:

falsehood of tho matter asserted. .

The most noticablo thing in tho above
paragraph is tho fact that the now baby
has no name. Wo aro not informed what
"Standing Committee" met nor to what
"State Convention" tho "delegates'" arc
to be accredited. What is tho name of
the poor thing ? Is it "Federal ;" is it
"anti-war of 1812;" is it "Hartford Con

Thad Stevens at its head ; is it "Wlii" :"
is it ,'anti-3Iexican War ;" is it "Know-
Nothing;" is it "Republican;" is it
"Union;" is it "Abolition?"
Surely out of all thoss oast off names
Isaac might havo found one for tho poor
orphan. Ho had such bad luck at the

will be a committee to name tho concern.

Tho names of thoso Conferees is sugges

- I I.I.I l !
A Fact Worth Rememiiemno. On
3Ionday Jlr. Oalfax offered a resolution
in tho IIouso of Representatives to allow
a man in peril of his freedom to have a
Jury trial, and compelling tho other man
who claimed his flesh, blood, bones, iin
ews, brains, and children born or children
to bo born as property to prove that he
tho claimant was a loyal citizen. Every
Republican voted Yea, and every Demo
crat (with a .einglo exception) voted No.
Stick a pin hero.
Columbia co. Republican.
Wo will and the pin wo stick thcro
will just remind every body that the Dr.
is an abolitionist, and whenever thcro is a
"nigger in tho wood pile," he is fos "free
speech" and "Jury trials." But when a
un7e man is arrested and hurried off to
somo military fortress, it is all right ; and
ho is not only not entitled to a trial by
a Jury, but is not even to kno w tho charge
against him or tho namo of tho accuser.
So, stick a pin thero and remember it for
ever hereafter that "every Republican" is
willing to give tho "nigger brethern" what
"ovory Republican" has denied to a white
man. Wo havo always been of tho opin
ion that a white man was as good as a
nigger, but it seems wo wcro mistaken,
Republican abolitionists being the judges.
Stick a piu thcro.
Expulsion of Vallandiciham. -A
petition signed by six hundred and thirty
three citizens of Cincinnati, Ohio, has
petitioned tho IIouso of Representatives to
expel tho notorious Democratio leader
Vallandighaui assorting that ho is a trai
tor and a disgraco to tho Stato of Ohio,
which nobody can deny.
Columbia co. Republican.
Tho Washington correspondent of tho
N. Y. Herald, under dato of Juno 13th,
writes that "Hon., 0. L. Vallandigbam
was serenaded last night by an Ohio band
attached to one of tho Now York Rcgi
nients stationed in this vioiuity."
So you sco, Dr., unless you expel that
"Ohio band'' and disband that "Now
York Regiment" you oan't find tho knob
on that laft yarn of yours. But of courso
you will inform us tho next time you find
that "A petition" "has petitioned the
House, ver.y kind of tia petition,
JJ A corropondent inquires whether
in our opinion Col. Tate stands any
ohnnco whatever, of getting tho nomin.i
tion of Surveyor General. Wo answer
that wo think his ehancos as good as any.
Every decent and respectable man having

Columbia co, Republican.
Wo publish tho obovo paragraph for
tlio simplo purpose of showing to our
Doraocratio friends throughout this and
adjoining counties, tho manner in which
Dr. John and his owners intend carrying
on tho comitic campaign. It is a sura
critorion of the stylo and calibro of tho
man ; and is of a picco with his ''pocket
book" paragraph of last Fall, aud which
was followed by from 700 to 1,000 Dem

''I slated, therefore," said General
Richardson, in his late speech, "and I
think truthfully, that the Government is
already paying 5100,000 per day for the
support and employment of negroes, pay
mg it, too, out of money raised through
tho toil, deprivations, and taxation of our
kith and kin." Boston Post.
That is only Ihirly-six million five hun
dred thousand dollars ($30,500,000) for
tho current year's ''contraband" expen
ses, provided no moro negroes fall upon
the Government's hands. Tho whole
amount of revenue collected under the
IMorill tariff," for a year past, will
scarcely meet this negro bill. It is said
that there arc already 5000 "contraband"
negroes in Washington city alone ; and
last week they continued to arrive to the
number of 30 daily.
The True Policy. Tho Boston Post
says, with great truth and singnificancc,
that 41 as fast as we proceed into the
enemy's country, the words of tho Now
York 74ne,of Senator Sumiier,of Love
joy, of Hickman and Wade, of tho Abo
lition meetings of Boston, follow in our
footsteps. Where the power of a federal
soldier has made a friend to the Union, aro miserable caricatures. For tho credit
these men of the North turn his heart of of our counterfeiters I trust their next is
gall again. They see that large party sue will excol tho genuine notes- Eastern
here is working might and main to coerce
tho President into emancipation at the
head of tho army ; thoy see that this
party would make this a war for the abo
lition of slavery, therefore thoy sec a lio

Who are Union 3Ien? All Demo
crats aro Union 3Icn. Those who are not
Demoorut3 are not Union men. If a voter
is not a Union man he is not a Democrat;
and if ho U not a friend of tho Constitution,
which is our government, he is not a Dem

tbo Union and tho Constitution, and in
fayor of maintaining both with all tho
means in their power, or thoy are false to
tho foundation principles of their party.
Can our opponents say as much ? Let
their actions answer tho question.

Who aro tlio Traitors?
Senator James II- Lane, of Kansas, a

made a speech at the Cooper Institute,
New York city, oa Thursday night, 5th

looked upon the ivar as a cowardly teat
which must be checked, so os to prevail out
children from suffering through it."
This same man, Lane, is ono of Abra
ham Lincoln's pets, was appointed a Brig
adier General by him, and is, no doubt,
at this day, high in favor with tho Admin
istration. Of course ho will bo suffered to
go about preaching opposition to the war.

A sharp fire was kept up in the woods,
