Ii4ias been common to -suppose that the
Constitution of the United States was a work
f great-political wisdom, and that James
"Madisou," the wise v and honored eon of
Virginia, more than any other statesmen
contemporary with its formation, was in
strumental in its origination and adoption.
But it seems that the rraxims of seccession
teachi its votaries to spU on the ashes of the
patriots, '.egUlatares, "arid lie roes whose
works they are seeking to destroy. It is
to ibis. purport that the Richmond Whig of
recent date, in an article copied by M29.t
length on the 24:h instant, held the following
-contemptuous language respecting the
"-Constitution which it once professed to ad
jsire and Tevere :
"We have been taught to believe that -a
loose league or confederacy of free, sov
erein, and independent Commonwealths
constituted the beat frame of government,
for the happiness and freedom of man,
.which human ingenuity has devised. The
old articles -of Confederation, which bore
"''us triumphantly through the Revolution, is
our bean -idea! of a perfect Government
That was shipwrecked -by the financial em
barrassments which followed the war. and
vnt substituted by the Yankee concern, Hchich
in onr day, has annihilated evey vestige of

.changed circumstances admit, that confed
erate system, which, without an elective
"K:ng and an army of greedy office-seekers,
would ensure ns ireedom and indepen
dence.'7 ft is -in view of such utterances 'that we
can appreciate the violeucewhich secession
reanires its patrons to do to all that is most
-sacred in oar national traditions and histori
cal associations, li is willing to blot out
- tba glorious past, that it may with less
iihame coiotnence under anspices of dimin-

As the abolition sheets are laboring very
hard to create the impresslbn that 'the Dem

public a lint of the general 6"fncVrs' of' the

George B. McClellari ; John A Dix; Ben

Smitie ; Storgis ;" Sweeny ; Wright ;' and a
host of others, whose names we are unable
to calf to mind. From the above list, it
will be seeri that fully two thirds of the
general officers are members of the Dem'o
cratic party, while fully three-fotlrths of the
rank and file of the army belong to the same
party. Many of the above were warm sup
porters of John C. Breckinridge for the Pres

Meeting in bentoo.
A Democratic meeting was held in Ben
ton, on Saturday afternoon last, which was
largely attended both by male and female.
The meeting organized, about 2 o'clock, in
a grove close by the town, by -the selection
of the -following officers :
JOHN C DOTY, Pieside'pt
Vice Presidents. Isaiah Crevelinp, Peter
Hess. Albert Atnmermaj, Absolom McHeu

John McHenry, John J. Stiles.
Secretaries Cyroi B. McHenry, Uzal H.
Ent, W. H. Jacoby.
The meeting was addressed by Col John
G. Freeze and other. If we may judge
from the demonstrations of applause made
during the -speeches, we may well say
that the people of Ben'on and v icinity are
much enlivened in the cause of Democracy.

gave them to think more firmly that thej
were right in maintaining their old organi

Charles 'R. 'Buckalew, was received with
applause. This letter asssred the Democ
racy that the course they were pursuing
was wise and patriotic.
On motion the meeting adjourned .
Most of onr readers have doubtless read
that affecting. prssage in the book of Ruth in
which the beautiful Moabites, speaking to
her 'bereaved molher 'in law, exclaims:
"Whither thou go est, I will go, and whith
er thou lodgest, I will lodge," and the mal
ediction she called upon her head, if aught
but death should part them And it is thus
every true patriot now feels towaids the

naturalized, love it ? Il has been our bul

the freest and most prosperous nation oh

the lowest as well as'the highest citizen.
It is the legacy ol Washington, Jefferson,
Madison, and the other illustrious revolu

gone to their reward, and we should cher

therefore, with one heart and one soul,

Important Arrest. A Daguerreotypist,

were about to be enforced, he attempted to

very unpleasant affray on last Monday.
The Brigade Inspector of this Brigade hav

companies of this coanty, o meet at Dan
ville on that ' day for inspection, the Ex
change Guafds, a newty organized compa
ny from Anthony township, and a portion
of the Washington ville Cavalr)- were in at
tendance. Soon after their arrival J. R
Patton, of this place, and Jas. McKee, a
member of the Washingtonville Cavalry,
had an altercation relating to the war. and,
as is usual in such cases, one word brought
on another jntil both became excited and
injudicious language was, as we learn,
used on both sides. All manner of reports
being set on foot, soon brought an excited
crowd together, and for a time it looked as
if there was going to be a "free fight," but
finally, through the efforts-bf several law
abiding citizens, peace was restored. Still
the malicious reports that had been propa
gated by persons who ought to have known
better, kept up a feverish excitement
which finally broke out in violence to one
of the Exchange volunteers, who had exci
ted the ire of some individual by a remark
he made. This person was struck and
somewhat maltreated while standing in the
ranks of the company in front of Freeze'
hotel. Thomas Miller, a' workman at the
Rongh and Ready, interfering to protect
him, brought the crowd upon himself.
Blows were given and taken for some time,
but the par'y being too numerous'tbr Mil
ler, he had to retreat into the hotel, follow
ed by the mob who were bent on doing
him violence. Miller it seems got out the
back' way, and arming himself with a knife
went back in search of 'his hat when the
mob gave chae to him ant! finally knocked
him down with stones and then kicked and
stamped upon him until citizens interfered
to keep them from killing him outright.
Many thought he was dead, but it ' appears
he is about as tongh as sole leather, for
he was up and aboot in the evening. In
fighting Miller made a pass with a knife at
i one of his assailants named A'.en who re
ceived a slight scratch on the breast. In
the meantime the Guan's seeing so much !
turbolance and confusion in the streets dis
missed mid left for home

sided, and unfair. Of rhe Exchange Guard,
whom the edrtor of the American charges
w ith-entertaining 'disloyal sentiments, and
making' disloyal expressions, we need only
say, that no more loyal, brave and pa.rio:ic
Military Company, ever paraded the Streets
of Danville. If the editor of the American
doubts their lovalty or their love for the Un
ion, for thre establishment and ' preservation
of which many ol their fathers have fought,
let him tell any one ol those "boys" that he I
is disloyal, and he will soon "see stars"
and find stripes where none appeared be
fore, and will discover that they possess
true manly courage, as well as loyalty.
So far as we saw, or have been able to
learn these companies all conducted them
selves properly, molesting no one, interfer
ing with no one, not even heeding the con
temptuous epithets such as ''secession"
"Sunday soldiers," &c, with which they
were frequently assailed, by boys of larger
and Smaller growth, as they passed along
the streets. They were here in obedience
to a 'military order, in 'discharge of their
doty as citizens soldiers. Their ensign bore
aloft the Stars ar.tl Stripes, the emblem of
our National honor, and of our Union, and
they were entitled to protection from insull
and injury. For the honor of our Borough,
for the credit of our peaceful, law abiding,
order Joving citizens, as well as for the bu
jiness interests of Our town, we sincerely
hope it will be long before another such a
scene shall occur Dnnvtlle Intelligencer.

Business of the Country.
What a falling off there has 'been in the
industrial department of oar nation within
the" sffon space ol one 'year. What a de
crease in the products of the conniry. One
year ago, j nst previous to the Presidential
election, the hum of ihe spindle, the ring of
the anvil, an-J the sound of 'the saw, were
heard in every part of the land. The shelves
of the merchant were fairly groaning be
neath the loads of merchandize; the com
merce of the nation was in the full 'tide of
prosperity, and the mechanic an) laborer
were abundantly "employed. The North
and Souih were alike prosperous, and the
country bore the marks of creamess aid ad
vancement. Business was thriving, and all
were satisfied with the cheering prospect
and hopeful future. Then it was lliat the
fanner sewed his seed in anticipation of a
rich harvest from his stock and his broad
fields he expected a good return for both
his labor and his capital. Railroad were
ir. process of completion, and the building ,n consequence of debility from over-ex-of
others was anticipated; new forges, lur-, ertio hl corlnt,ction w, his command,
naces, anti macmnes snops were ao i.emg
erected, and in lact every ihini looked 60 j
bright that the people rejo.ce.d to thii.k of
the good times so much busine-s would
make in the' country. ' But alas! all our
hopes are blasted, our calculations upset,

No man could have believed that there was j
wickedness enousjh in American citizens to
create' rebellion like the one before us at
this very' moment a rebellion to deetroy all
political relations, all ' social fellowship,
lamily ties, and. above all, to destroy this
noble Goernment. But it has been done,
and we are now beginning to reap the con
sequences. Although there is more money
in the country at the present time than in
any other year since the formation of tha
Government, still there is less business do
ing in all the productive departments ih'tti
there was before. And why is it? We an
swer again war, civil, rebellious war ! tia
prostrated the nation, the merchant, the
shipper, the manufacturer, the farmer, the
mechanic, the laborer, the artist, and. in
short, every department except that relating
to war. How long this' is -to last, remains
to be seen. Soon the Governriye'ru will have
all the &un., bayonet- and sword it require,
and all those working on inese things will
have nothing more to do. Before long the
army will be snpplied with a I the knap
sacks, cartridge toxes, belts, &c, that are
wauied, and a large num'ter more will be
idle. Then when the wagons and accou
trements belonging to them are supplied,
still more will be thrown out of employment.
