Tte Judgment Acaloit Surtin. ;
We have repeatedly called attention to
the decided and unequivocal manner . in
which Andrew G. Curtin has been con
demned by hia own party,; No. public man
ever went before the people, begging for
their votes, with such a stained and black
ened record as that which the Ablitionista
themselves have presented of their own
candidate for Governor. Corruption and
imbecility have been indelibly stamped
npon him by their own hands ; and so uni
versal is their belief in the troth of th
damning charges agiinst him, that no Abo
lition journal of any weight or influence has
had tbe hardihood or brazen impudence to
attempt to deny them, li has the positive
evidence in their possession of hia rank cor
ruption that caused iha flon. S A. Punvr
asce, through "seH-reepect," to resign hifl
position as Attorney General that induced
the Pittsburg Gaxeitt io pay that "hia ienom
ination would be a disgrace to the Abolition
pany and his election impossible'"- and
that forced a large' nn on ber ot delegates in
the PitUburg Convention to earnestly pro
test against his being made the candidate
of a party already borne down under th
heavy weigh: of its manifold sins and trans
gressions. Can the ho. iet voters of Penn
sylvania repose any confidence in a ran so
utterly and universally condemned by his
own partisans ? Can they place the vital
interests of the old Keystone in his keeping
for three years longer, when his pat term
of service proves that ha is an unfaithful
public servant, and afier he has been pro
nounced by Abolitionists theratelves the
raostcoTupt public man that ever dis
graced this'or any o'her country? Let them
answer at the polls on the Secoud Tuesday
of next October.
Tbe Last Dodge.
The Republican party, hard up for elec
tioneering documents, have taken an edito
rial, pnrporting to have appeared in the
Richmond lnquiret, rgsrbled it to some ex
tent to suit best the cause or which they
nse it, and arranged it in a large and con
picaou4 poster, setting forth the "road to
peace through Pennsylvania via Washing
ton, as engineered by Sonthern Rebels and
their Democratic Allies." They copy from
Jeff. Davis' organ, matter to show that the
Democratic party of the North have the
sympathy of the Rebels in the present cam
paign, and only a short time ago this party
published article after article, from this
very same Richmond paper, showing that
the Rebels looked on the Democratic party
with corn and contempt, and viewed them
as the worst enamies they had to contend
against. How is it now ? To the contrary.
The Repnblican prty would have you be
lieve that JeiT. Davis stands ready to assist
in the election of a Democratic Governor in
Pennsylvania. This -is not the cae. They
tell yon that Pennsylvania is asjain to be in
vaded by the Rebel Lee, and that by such
conduct the Democracy are to be strength
ened, and Peace proenred to the Sojth on
their own terra. They woold also have
yon believe that the Democracy are going
to assail the Administration. All such stuff
will do to read and circulate among crazy
Abolitionists and old women, but among
the stalwortb Democracy yon wiil have to
produce something of a better character,
and from a more reliable and influential
source. We believe one of the roads to
peace is through Pennsylvania, and through
submission tc the Constitution and the Un
ion. The election of Judge Woodward will
be starting the procession on this road to
peace. Through the Democratic party, and
submifsioc to the Constitution and Laws
in accordance thereof, can peace be restor
ed and this Union once more reconstructed
Elect Woodward Governor of Peonsylva
ma and yon have performed a good work ;
yon have placed a man at the head o- Gov
ernment able and worthy of the position,
and one who will not neglect the duty he
owes to his State in tbe hour of her trial.
The Shoddy candidate's party are crowded
to the wall when they have to resort to the
Richmond Irq'tirr for electioneering mat
ter to carry the State of Pennsylvania This
won't pay. Yonr case is a hopeless one.
No medicine will save yoo. Your candi
date is already polit'ca'ly ' dead. On the
13th of October we will attend his funeral.
Thb Republican of laM week eays :
"Fifty deserters per day are sent to Har
risburg from various portions of the State.
They belonged to copperhead families."
Of course Billy, all that are returned are
copperheads. The niggerheads, have a
convenient way of. getting exeusfd. Yoo
know "the cause of education," was about
"to suffer" in your cae ; sj that one more
pair of handcuffs was reserved for some
copperhead who tried to play the sneak as
you did, but was less snccessful in it.
We cannot understand why to much
time ai.d money is expended in arresting
and returning these copperheads whom yon
represent as disloyal, and so ranch in favor
or Jeff. Davis. We should think . that cne
such real Loyil niggerhead sneak like you
would be worth a score of them.
, A friend at our elbow sa&gests that yon
are doing more, in yonr present sitoation,
fo aid Jeff, in his schemes oi disunion, than
a Regiment of such white livered milksops
could in his army. N. 3 Democrat.
It is said that the Curtis orators who are
traveling over he State making speeches
f for the Abolition State ticket receive a cer
tain sum in greenbacks for each speech
they deliver- We understand that a com
mittee has been appointed to regulate tbe
price in every case. The shoddy patriots
do nothing now without pay, from their
candidate for Governor down to the mean
est cur that barks at the heels of the Demo
cratic nominees. To meet the sums ne
cessary for carrying on a campaign in this
peculiar way, the people are plunder
ed and tbe taxes are increased. They can
reform these fearful abuses only by Noting
the Democratic ticket.

Dr. John nod ths Craft.
.Dr. Pek John felt so deep an interest in th
draft that he went to Troy for the purpose
of seeing who was hit and who wasn't
When he gets home he sits down and
writes an editorial for his paper, telling his
readers all about it. How "the wheel was
turned bjr the Marshal, the names drawn
by a blirfd man, named Henry Vandyki;,
who haoded the ticket to the Commissioner,
who iu loud voice announced it, then hand
ed it over to the Surgeon, who carefully in
spected it to see that it was all correct, he
then passed it over to "the Clerk, who
again announced the name, after which it
was taken down by three other Clerks, ard
then handed over to another Clerk and
placed in regular order on a string," and
then the Dr. wrote the names down on
hi slip of paper, after which the thing was
right. Tbe board did not honor the Dr. with
a prize in the Lottery they were conduct
inar. It would have broken his heart if
they had ! He never could think of going,
the Republican par'y might suffer did he
leave and go into the army. And to pay
three hundred dollars would bo contrary to
the doctrine of Quaker teaching! To pay
money in sums of three hundred dollars, to
conduct a war, holy or unholy, no Repub
lican editor of Quaker persuasion will ever
be guilty of. Not they !
The Dr. spuaks very flippontly of the
draft in several places in his paper, styling
it as a "Lottery," dealing out "prizes," and
that it would be an honor to receive one -We
cannot see that it could be in any way
costiidered an ''honor" or " lucky," to draw
one of Abraham's ''prizes," a many of
our yonng men who are drafted, and junt
getting a little slart in life, are compelled
to sacrifice their homes, which they hive
toiled hard to become the owner ol, for the
purpose of raieing the Three Hundred Dollars
commutation monoy, and thus extricate
themselves from out the three year's ser
vice into which they have been drafted. Is
thia,!Iucky" to lose your little snug home
or' enter the service for three long yean to
be ehot ? This is a graver subject than Dr.
John would have his readers believe. It is
no light, iriffling matter. Go into the ser
vice men will not, when they can stay out
for lhtet Hundred Dollars, though it leaves
them a begsar, a it will do in many in
stances, to our knowledge. Yet '.his is a
"prize" and the drawer is "lucky."
At the close of the Dr's. article he insults
the people by telling them that, "any bold
er of a ticket not preferring to give 300,"
(meaning ot course all those who are not
able to pay, and those who are not physical
ly exempt.yb' all tcho are able to piy tedl not
go) "will receive the following articles
gratis no Internal Revenue Stamps be
ing required." He seemingly chuckles
over the idea, that all are not able to pay,
and that the?e articles will don the backs of
some of the unfortunate boys:
1 new, highly finished musket ;
I bran new suit ol clothes, with blue,
yellow or red trimmings-whichever he may
1 pair of shoes and Ftockings;
1 elear.t blanket ;

In addition to thee the holder of the
lucky number will have a rezular income cf

If this harsh measure is deemed neces

Billy Burgess, late of Columbia Co., Pa
Editor of the fFyjmujg Republican, was draf
ted nearly a year ao, was never legally dis
charged or excused, and has never report
ed himself for military duty, but in now
romir.g at large. That he would be a n ex
celtent subject for "an example," or lor
any other scare crow purposes, we have no
doubt. Besides it would not seem so cruel
or unjust to lake this "old offender'' this
draft sneak of eleven months stand ng, as
to take some poor Devil who has only had
a fortnight's notice.

North Branch Democrat.
How things do change! A little over
one year ago the Republicans cf this town
mobbed a man simply because he enter
tained different views from them in relation
to conducting the war, and.was opposed to
the raising of a bounty to induce men to ea
t er the army. For this reason he was beat
en and mobbed ! Now these same men
are doing alt in their power to raise money
to keep men out of the arrriyX Two of the ri
oters have been drafted, and that is the way
they are displaying their patriotism. This
is quite a different slate of affairs, when
they pay money to keep out of tht army !
Why don't they go and fight, or lias their
patriotism all oozed out at the ends of their
little fingers ! Has the cause of the war
lessened in their estimation ? J it not a
war for the restoration of the Union, as they
proclaimed it was at the outstart'' These
things may remain jnst as they were, there
is no excuse for thess loud-mouihe.l patri
ots. Let them show tbeir loyally in a dif
ferent and more substantial manner than
sacrificing what tittle property they have to
keep out of the army, when so short a time
ago they would abufe and ill-treat men for
not agreeing ia sentiment,
a to . the war.

Democratic Meeting in Benton.
, Pursuant to public notice a Democratic
Meeting was held in Benton, Columbia co.,
on Thursday last. It was well attended,
and was an entire success. The organiza
tion was made as follows :

s Vice Piesirleats, Sam'l Hess, Peter Case,
Absblom McHenry, W. E4 Roberts, Alinas
Cole, David Lewis, Peter Creveling, Vincet
Ritchie, Abraham Coleman, Samuel Kitmer,
Samuel Rhone, John C. Doty, Samuel Ap
pleraan, John J. Stiles.
Secretaries r . Harrison J.coby, Samuel
R Kline, Esq.
Speeches were made by Hon.'M E." Jack
son, of Berwick, A. J. Dieterich, Eqr., of
Williamsport, and Col John G. Fheeze, of
Bloomsburg. They made able and patriotic
speeches, being gentlemen of considerable
experience both on the stump and at the
bar. The actions of the corrupt men ad
ministering the affairs of Government, both
State and National, were handled without
gloves. If there were any Repnt licans in
hearing they mast have cringed under the
just and heavy blows delt out by the speak
ers. They spared neither Abraham nor As
dy, but argued their cause, which was
agaiost them, the
same as they would the
trial of a criminal arraigned
before a Court
of Justice for theft or murder. We will
await patiently the verdict, which will be
rendered on the 13th ol October.
The meeting was honored by the presence
of several hundred ladies. Flags, banner,
and martial music, were at the head of each
delegation as thy came in At the clos,
three cheers were given for Woodward and
Lowrie. We wonld not forget to mention
that several national airs were 6ung by a
couple of little girls.
