WM. II J.4COBY, EDITOR.
iLOOaSBnG, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 1861.
Looks Like a Fight.
If the telegraphic despatches and the sen
sation letter writers are bat partially to be
pie, aa well as the administration, are more
indicative of war than they were a month
t'.jro. It is reported that the South an mak
ing increased preparations for an attack op
t'i the Forts, and is expected will carry oot
their intentions, in case the iorts are not
oon eradiated, in a few days. It is also
rcraored that Lincoln designs attempting
to re enforce Fort Sumpter. Lieut. Talbot
reached Washington on the 7th with des
patches from Maj. Anderson, and had fall
" interview with the President and Cabinet.
It is thought, and no doabt correctly, if Fort
Sampler is not immediately given up, the
randition of the garrison would require re
lief in many respects. The various neces
saries are no doubt nearly if not quite ex
bans ted. The conriction is beginning to
grow strong in military circles that a colis
ion is nearly inevitable, and mast and will
come sooner or later. Upon the whole, all
we receive, from Washington and Mont
;omery, is news of a "afar-like character.
, The Late Elections.
In all the late elections of any account
the Democratic party, have had an increas
ed vote over that of last fall. Lincoln ism is
last wilting down; at greater speed than was
anticipated by the Democracy they would
'rither. The people are beginning to see
where they stand where they are drifting
and into whose bands they have fallen.
They have been wofully misled, bewilder
ed by the blue light of the wide-awake lamp j
and all they need to convince the Repub
licans of that fact, is an opportunity at the
'ballot-box; which fact they have already
proven in a number of instances. The late
'elections in Rhode Island and Connecticut,
have treated the Opposition to a withering
rebuke, which is one fact not to be gotten
around, aud goes far to satisfy any observer
that the people of these two States were,
in last fall's election,' deceived and cheated,
la Rhode Island- the Democracy, to use a
rather vulgar term, cleaned them out!
.They elected a Governor, the two Con
gressmen, and the Legislature, giving the
Republicans nothing. In Connecticut the
Democracy did well ; they gained two Con
gressmen, -one balf bes-des cot down the
Republican majority Jraore than one third
: of what it was inJLincoln's election. This
is encouraging ! Bring 'out your big guns
and hoist op your rosters, boys.
We hardly supposed that such blind in
fatuation existed in any one head, less
much in seven or eight Cabinet Ministers,
as to suppose the country could be deceived
by the hollow and forced surrender of Fort
Sumpter. Is the surrender a pacific sign,
or a sign of Governmental impotency ? We
are convinced that it is Governmental ina
bility to hold it, and, therefore, with a pre
sumptive air of earnestness and truthfulness,
it is bruited abroad by the Abolition Admin
istration presses, that it is a peace offering
to the'South lor the sake of the Union. The
Fresident has never asserted that he was
governed by that intention, and he never
will otter so palpable an untruth. He and
his advisers have been all a long talking of
coercion against the South, end are now
obliged to take the poisoned chalic to their
own lips from the hands of the threatened
victims, and so it will be in tbs case of Fort
Pickens and all the other Southern fortres
ses. The PecnsylTanian.
Yielding to the pressure of the times, and
the apathy and indifference of the Demo
cratic party in sustaining journals devoted
to tne support ana netence oi tne men ana
measures of the party, this old Democratic
journal has suspended.
The Penntyhanian was one of the oldest
if not the very oldest daily papers print
ed in Philadelphia. It was started we think
by Mr. Benjamin Mifflin, as a weekly jour
nal, somewhere about the year 1830, and
was changed to a daily in 1832. No paper
in the country had a fairer Democratic
record, and ever since its establishment,
with some few trifling exceptions, it has
beeo cond acted with marked ability, and
has sustained the cause of justice and truth
with unwavering energy and unflagging
zeal. It has sustained every Democratic
administration from the days of Jackson
down to the present, and all the great mea
sures of policy and reform with which they
w ere identified. It has fought nobly against
all those heresies and unsound measures
which a vindictive and persistent Opposi
tion have, from time to time, endeavored
to engraft upon the policy of the country ;
and all those now living, who have been
aisociated in its management, can look
back with pride at the share they have had
in imoartinz to it the character it maintain
ed for intelligence, vigor and high inflexi
bility. 1 m m

Nothing is more annoying or calculated
to give greater offence, than insolent words
or actions on the part of a servant of the
public, whether employed in the Po-t office,
or any other branch of the Government.
And there are no circumstances which will
justify their exhibition in any shape. And
yet pnblic censure is too frequently brought
upon the Post Office Department Irom thi
For the comfort of those who sometimes
suffer ic this way for the want of courtesy
and respectful treatment on the part of Post
Masters and Clerks, we will venture the as
surance that if there is any "unpardonable
siu" In the estimation of the Head of the
Department, it i- official insolence It is
j deemed a sufficient cause for the prompt
removal of the offending party whenever
the charge is clearly established.
Of this insulting description are some of
the informal messages introduced on the
margin of the printed circulars used to no
tify newspaper publishers that their papers
sent to certain addresses are not taken out
of the Post Office. Then, there are again
those who return the papers, contrary to all
Post Office laws and regulations, with a lot
of insulting language written upon the mar
gin of it, which subject the document to
letter postage and makes the Postmaster
finable. He has no right to send back a
paper; much less to write anything upon
it; the department supply all offices with
blanks lor the purpose of informing editors
of the persons who do not lift their papers.
Of this latter class of Postmasters, sorry to
say it, we have one in thi County, station
ed at Cattawi-sa, or else the work which
came lrom that office wofully belies him.
We received a paper of ours a few days
since, from that office, which had been ad
dressed to the Post Master of that place,
with directions written upon it for its dis
continuance, and after which, was written
a long tirade of abuse upon the margin.
Now, we would ask, is this kind of official
insolence to be tolerated ? Are men to be
retained in office who violate the first prin
ciples of their oath? When officers do not
observe the law, what is expected of other
people ? Men clothed in official garments
should be careful how they wear them

The Philadelphia Pennsyloanian in speak-
in'of the court martial in the case of Com
modore Armstrong for delivering up gov
ernment property to the seceding States,
which has been sitting in Washington for
some time, remarks that it has been ad
journed from day to day in consequence of
absence of Lieutenant Gclman, who is in
Fort Pickens. The War, Department has
notified the Court that it is impossible for
a summons to be served on the witness.
Th?s simple, single fact completely illus
trates the weakness, impotence and degra
dation to which the republican party has
reduced this one powerful government. It
cannot serve process on a witness in a Fed
eral fortress ! This suggests other humilia
We are told that a man from Illinois,
(Mr. Laman,) despatched by the President
on a mission to Charleston, registered him
self as from Virginia. But there is a more
notable instance. The President himself
from abase fear and consciousness of guilt,
stole disguised, through Baltimore to his
own inauguration at Washington. He is
this day afraid to go into any of the slave
States. Mo"t of the members ot his CaDi-
net are in the same situation. He will soon
be afraid of Gen. Scott's little standing ar
my in Washington. We should not be sur
prised if one of these mornings the citizens
of Washington, on awakening, should dis
cover that the President and his whole Cab
inel had packed up their duds and decampt
ed from the metropolis.
These are the people who talked about
hanging the Commissioners, and defending
Fort Sumpter to the last, and now threaten
to force re-enforcements which they inge
ciously argue are not re enforcements into
Fort Pickens. This is all baldderdash.
They have not the spirit of a sheep.
By the time the Republicans are done with
the Government, unless they change their
policy, it will be a fugitive Government,
without a capitol.
The returns are not complete, but indicate
the success of the Republican ticket for
Governor and other State officers by a small
majority, and also that th same party Lave
a majority in the Legislature. James E.
English, Democrat is elected to Congress
from the district composed of New Haven
and Middlesex counties, by about 800 ma
jority. Tne distrct was represented in the
last Congress by John Woodruff, Republi
can. In the 3d District A. A. Burnham
(Rep.) is re-elected to Congress, Dwight
Loo mis (Rep) is probably elected in the
1st District ; while in the 4th, not fully
beard from, chances are in favor ol George
C. Woodruff, (Dem.,) over Ferry, the late
Republican member. In the late Congress
all the members from Connecticut, and ia
deed from New England, were Republi
cans. Stephen Girard's Rale.
1 he following remarks of Stephen Girard
furnishes the key to the secret of his great
success in life. He said "I have always
considered advertising, liberally and long, to
be the great medium of success in business,
and prelude to wealth. Aod I have made
it an invariable rule, too, to advertise in the
dullest times, long experience having taught
me that money thus spent is well laid out;
as, by keeping my business continually be
fore the public, it has secured me many
sales that I would otherwise have lost."

Paying Republican Expenses at Harrisbnrg.
; We published an article two weeks ago
showing that Lincoln's visit to Albany cost
the State of Now York for expenses 51,120,
in which bill was an item of 4357 for wines
and liquors. We also showed that the Re
publican bill in Philadelphia, which the au
thorities of that city imposed upon the peo
ple was $1,699, in which 1,400 brandy smash
es were counted. We then asked for ''Old
Abe's" bill at Hatrlsburg, which our Re
publican Legislature takes out of the pock
ets of the taxpayers of this State. Here it
is, as given by the Daily Patriot :
Carriage hire, 8178 00
Refreshments at Continental Hotel, 97 00
Bill at Coverly's, 640 00
Legislative Cora. $100 a piece, 1,200 00
Total, 82,115 50
The carriages used on this occasion were
to escort Mr. Lincoln and suite from the cars
to the hdtel, and to the cars again next
morning. How it is possible to figure up
$178 for this service is only known to the
initiated. Allowing ten carriages, at five
dollars each, the cost would amount to $50.
The next item, 197 50, is lor refreshments
at the Continental ' Hotel. What kind of
refresh me ras? Was it Whisky? and for
The bill 'at Coverly's was $640. This
charge was originally $1,190, but $550 were
thrown off. Supposing that Mr. Lincoln's
suite consisted of twenty persons, we have
an allowance of more than thirty dollars for
each individual. What a fearful amount of
eatables and drinkables they must have
consumed at this rate!
Then the Committee charge one hundred
dollars each for their services, in traveling
to Pittsburg to invite the President to visit
Harrisburg, and afterwards going to Phila
delphia to meet him. As they all travelled
iree on the railroad, and as they charge
$97 for expenses at the Continental Hotel
in Philadelphia, this allowance is all clear
gain In order to make the aggregate come
out square, this Committee must have con
sisted of twelve persons, at a cost oi $100
each. During their absence their pay as
members of the Legislature was, of course,
going on. This is the most shameful part
of this demand upon the Treasury.
Altogether, citizens of Columbia county,
what do you think of this kind of economy?
How do you like to pay $2,115 50 for
This nice little bill, be it remembered,
does not include the expenses of th parade
and display on the 22d of February. That
is a separate matter. Before the close of
the session another account of two or three
thousand dollars may be expected on this
score. One instalment for this performance
amountin g to $700, for the Mag and rigging,
has already been paid; but this is only part
of the expenses incurred. Another bill for
carriages, and committees, and dinners,
&c. &c, is yet to be rendered.
The Western Elections.
The Western elections are surprisingly
anti Republican, and show a remarkable
change in the vote since last fall. Cincin
nati then gave its vote for Lincoln. Now
the average Democratic majority is 4.000.
Cleveland, Sandusky, Columbus and Tole
do, now Democratic, gave their votes for
Lincoln, if we mistake not Remarking
upon the result in Cincinnati, the Gazelle
"At the election held in this city yester
day, the Republicans, to use a somewhat
vulgar but expressive term, were cleaned

redeeming feature, every candidate on the

majority is now, judging from the returns
at hand, up to the present writing, over
Possibly the following reasons assigned

"Anticipating the questions that will be
asked as to the cause of this Waterloo de
feat, we may say that Sumpter did it. The
Republicans, dissatisfied and discouraged,
had no heart to work, and they surrender,
ed without seriously contesting the field.
And if a temporizing policy is io be con
tinued at Washington, this is but the begij
ning of the end."
Besides the election in St. Louis, Kansas
City, and Jefferson City, those in Michigan
have chiefly resulted favorably to the Dem
ocrats. Grand Rapids elected the entire
Democratic ticket, with a gain of 350 votes
since last fall. Democratic Mayors were
elected on the first inst., in Saginaw City,
Lansing, Flint, Coldwaler, Owosso, Pontiac
and Ypsilanti ; and the Democratic town
ship tickets were successful in Corunna,Fen
tonville, Manchester, Hamlramck, Browns-
town, Spring jcells, Canton, and Dearborn
Six township elections are reported as car
ried by the Republicans.
We have been shown a document signed
by the Mayors in office of the c'rties of the
United States and Canada, certifying to the
superior excellence of Dr. Ayer's Com
pound Extract of Sarsaparilla and to the
value of all his remedies as articles of
great public utility. Such evidence from
such high sources bears us oot triumphantly
in the position we have long maintained
with regard to Dr. Ayer's preparations, or
more particularly our advertisements of
them. No publishers need be more oppos
ed than we are to the promulgation o
quackery in any shape, but we knew when
we bepan. that his remedies were above
any suspicion of deception that they were
about the best it is possible to produce for
the cure of disease, and that they have the
corffidecce of all communities where they
are known. Not alone because the Mayors
of the whole country believe them usefu
to their people, but because we know from
evnerience that thev are so to ours, do we

The Issoe Compromise or Disunion.
The question of compromise as the means
of retaining the Border States within the
Union, though temporarily obscured by the
pressing anxiety to determine the policy
which the Lincoln Administration intends
to pursue towards the seceded States, will.
in case war is averted, return with redoub
led force upon the Northern people, and
peremptorily demand a solution at their
hands. If the Administration means war
if force is to be used against the seceded
States if Fort Sumpter and Pickens are to
be held as the basis of aggressive operations,
and if there is to be a trial of strength be
tween the Government and those States
that no longer acknowledge its supremacy,
the breach will be widened beyond repair.
Instead of seven interior States to deal with,
tho government would be compslled to con
front fifteen. The Border Slates would re
gard war as the death of compromise, and
the influence of the noble band of Union
men who now prevent those States from
joining the Southern Confederacy hopelessly
destroyed. If it requires unceasing activity
to prevent the secession of the Border States
while the intentions of the Administration
towards the seceded Stales are yet undevel
oped, it is easy to ee that the moment war
is decided upon, that moment will the re
straining power of conservatism cease, and
the borders of the Southern Confederacy
be extended northward as far as the south
ern line of Pennsylvania. In this event,
which is more immediate than speculative J
in case the Administration determines to
employ force against the seceded States,
compromise will be out of the question, at
least for many years, perhaps generations
to come. The separation will have been
finally accomplished. The dream of Abo
litionism will have been realized. The "ir
repressible conflict" will have produced its
bitter fruits in the first year of the Adminis
tration of the party that proclaimed it.
But in case the vacillating and irresolute
councils at Washington conclude to avoid
the evils of war, and to confine concession,
lor the present, to the States composing the
Southern Confederacy, by severely letting
them alone, then the great, the absorbing
issue, must be met at the North, whether
the progress of disintegration shall bex stay
ed by agreeing to a compromise satisfactory
to the Border States, or whether they shall
be driven into the embrace of the Southern
Confederacy by the continued, obstinate
and persevering hostility of the North.
This issue is rapidly being made up. It
must be met. There is no way of avoiding
it ; for we regard it as a fixed fact that the
Border States will consent to remain in the
Union upon no other condition than that
their rights shall be recognized in such a
manner as to guarantee their future safety
security of their property Hence the issue
will be one of Union or disunion one be
tween saving the Border States or cutting
them adrift one between a separate North
ern Confederacy, dominated by Abolition
ists, or a continued Union, in the spirit of
that framed by the Fathers Those who
f . i r it
resist concessions tor tae sake oi union
must adopt the opposite, of separation rath
er than compromise. Too "no concession-
sts" will wear the badge ot disunion.
They cannot be permitted to escape the
consequences of their obstinacy; for the
alternative will be presented to their free
choice and in choosing against compro
mise they will choose against the Union.
We already see irresistible evidences that
tho border States will present this issue to
the North. Virginia has a strong attachment
lor the Union, but her Convention is about
to agree upon an ultimatum which is simi-
ar in its provisions to the resolutions adopt
ed by the Peace Conference, and the com
promise proposed by Mr. Crittenden the
main feature being an offer to divide the
Territories by the line of 36 30', acd thus
settle forever the Status of present and future
territories, until they acquire sufficient pop
ulation to be admitted into the Union as
States. Another part of her plan is to sum
mon a Convention of all the border Slates
and this term includes all slave States not
connected with the Southern Confederacy
to unite upon a plan of compromise and
present it for the determination of the North.
This action is regarded by the secessionists
in Virginia, who from all accounts are grow
ing in numbers and influence, as odiously
conservative and indicative of unpardona
ble timidity. If they had their way, the
State would be rushed out of the Union
without a moments delay. We see no
good reason to doubt that Virginia speaks
for the majority of the Border States, and
that North Carolina and Maryland, and
even Kentucky aud Missouri will be con
strained to follow her lead in case she de
termines to secede Instead of a reaction
in favor of the Union, the secession feeling
has grown, and isjgrowing. Apprehension
of this Administration has been displaced
by contempt for its timidity and vacillation,
and the hereditary affection for the Union in
a meannre destroyed by the determined ob
stinacy of the Republican party, which in
the eager hunt for the spoils of office re
fuses to do anything to rescue the country
from impending destruction.
Will the North permit the unyielding
Republicans to alienate the border States
beyond recall, and will the do-nothing,give-nothing,
concede-nothing policy be persist
ed in, until the Southern Confederacy ex
tends its borders to Washington? This
question requires an answer, and it must
be answered before many months, unless,
indeed, the Administration should accom
plish the worst that can be apprehended,
before the people have time to act, by
adopting coercive measures.
