From tke Berwick Gazette.
Ma. Editor : Having been looking over
the list of drafted men in Bloomsburg, I
propose to analyze it, for the benefit of your
readers. It is tvell known that a Loyal
League exists here not rery flourishing to
be ure but it stilt lives ; and it is equally
well known, that we have in our midst
some intensely loyal individuals, who have
been whipping out be South, on the street
corners, for the last two years and a half.
The test has been applied to some of those
patriotic gentlemen. Almost all shades,
colors, and occupations are represented
From the pitiful parson, who professes to
preach peace at a large salary, to the day
laborer whose constant 'toil is required to
support his family; and on below to the
dear Iriend of Mr Lincoln, the "American
citizen of African descent," the lot has
The draft Is of fifty -eight persons, and I
suppose thirty nine soldiers will be requir
ed as our quota. At the Abolition Concert
on Saturday evening, the sentiment that
every drofttdman must go was loudly applau
ded by Dr John and a few ot his kidney,
who had been selected to stay at home; and
I shall wait row, to see if my republican
friends, who have beer, righting the rebels
at a safe distance, and helping Dr. John's
ret "Han," to sing "down with the copper
heads, and Who have been insisting all
along that the Government wants men and not
money, and who are so very noisy in their
support of "the Government," will shoulder
the musket and face the music.
Among them are a considerable number
of original Loyal Leaguers, and we shall
now see if their "loyally leads to ihe field,"
or whether they belong to the home guards
not to leave the Slate except in case of
invasion and then to make the best of their
way out. Haifa dozen of them belong lo
the Rioters, whose fighting propensities and
desire to make Union men, displayed itself
so valorously in our streets. We trust they
will take'advantage of this most blessed op
portunity to indulge their loyalty to the
field, and will do their best to make Union
men down South, or if that be impossible,
then to whip them out or drive them into
Ihe gulf, as they have been so long threat
ening. Some too there are, who have been
singing with great glee "Dawn with the
Copperheads." Will they folio- the doc
trine of the hero Milroy, and proceed, under
this call, to crush out the South first, and
then come and attempt the liberties of the
people in the North, or will they now con

Barkley, the County
Comman Schools of
and Gov. Cunin and
Secretary Stanton will at once release Mr.
Barkley, on account of the educational inter
ests or the County. We all remember that
Billy Burge was relieved on the at ground
lat fall, whereupon be immediately com
menced the publication of an Abolition
newspaper in Wyoming county and neg
lected the educational interests of the coun
ty entirely, for the whole winter; by reason
whereof there is now the greater necessity
that Mr Barkley should be discharged irom
this draft, which covers the whole of his
official term. We want to see what action
will be taken in this case.
In short, there are more loyal, noisy, fight
ing republicans drawn , that are required to
fill the quota of Bloom township I know
they will not let any one else share the
fSory of thiswar, but will all rush to the
ranks, nor ask democrats to assist.
LOOKOUT tOR PIPE LiTICs
Mr Editor : The friends of Abolition
soldiers in the army are everywhere trying
to have them assessed. Yoong ,aen who
clerk, tide-waiter, dish-washers, uot in the
capacity of soldiers, and have their lonz
fingers among the stealings, are sending to
their friends to be assessed. Even seeding
to district where they have not, nor neve?
have had, a residence, are urging to be
assessed, ast they calculate to come from
Washington to Pennsylvania to vote for the
Shoddy candidate for Governor. We do not
bear of any Democrats that will be allow
ed to come home to vote; but no doubt all
republicans will be furloughed to vote for
the Abolition candidate, even if Pennsylva
nia should again be invaded, ten thousand
lives lost, and millious of property stolen
Luzerne connty it appears has become
the battle ground for Pennsylvania. By
examination yoo will find in all preceding
elections, when the party opposed to dem
ocratic principles could get a small majori
ty, or reduce the Democratic majority to a
mere trifle in Luzerne, a sore defeat wag
their doom. There are no drafting yet in
Luzerne, but only wait until after the 13th
intt., then it will come like a clap of thun
der from the clouds. Their cause is a des
perate one, and requires desperate efforts.
Many of those who are now making their
piles stand trembling in their boots, for fear
of being debarred in their sinecure. Many,
mad, ogly, ill tempered, abusive, quarrel
some, full of. blackguardism and kinds of
ribaldry, men who have nearly all their
lives been professors of religion, now tell
lies, and make ose of language that no
gentleman would be willing to be heard to
utter; even preachers can be beard to ose
profane language, and ose all kinds of vul
garity, besides all that, love the Nigger.
" ' Vox Popdli.
. A Lire Man.
It is gravely announced in an Abolition
paper that Curtin "is a live man." We are
glad to hear it. Bat a short time since be
was so near death's door that he gave op
all idea of being a candidate for re-election
and. announced bis withdrawal from the
field to a special 'message to the Legisla
ture. When it suits bis pleasure to be "in
valid" again which we think will be short

and enthusiastic Democratic moot
ing was held at Beach Haven, Luzerne fed.,
on Saturday last. Before the organization
of the meeting, a splendid Hickory Pale,
one hundred and seven feet long, was raised
with the - Stars and Stripes flung to the
breezsat its top. At 1 o'clock the meeting
was organized by appointing WM Pollock,
Esq., President ; after which Hon. Lxvi L.
Tate, Hon. M. E. Jackso and E. H ; Little,-Esq.,
all of Columbia county, made
excellent speeches, being frequently inter
rupted with rounds of applause. The issues
ol the campaign were ably and fairly dis
cussed. The attendance was large, from
three to four thousand persons being pres
ent. The ladies honored the occasion with
their presence, in large numbers. After
some two hours were taken up by each of
the speakers, the meeting adjourned, with
three cheers lor Woodward, Lowrie and
Democratic fleeting; in Jackson.
The Democracy held a large and enthu
siastic meeting in Jacob Lunger's beautiful
Grove, on Saturday Oct. 3, 1863"; the stand
was tastefully decorated by the storling
Democratic ladies of that vicinity with
splendid wreaths nciroling the likeness of
the Father of his country on the one side,
and of Old Hickory JacesoS on tha other.
On motion, JOHN McHENRY, sen., of
Benton, was elected President ; and, John

yeomanry came forth from all quarter to
hear the troth in this oar country's hour ol
peril, and they were not disappointed; ; the
true issnes of the times in which we live
were ably set forth in patriotic speeches
made by Col. J. G. Freeze, E. R. Ikl$r and
Wesley Wirt, Esq, amidt rounds ol ap
plause and approbation ; after singing two
patriotic songs the meeting adjourned by
giving three cueers for the Union as it was,
the Constitution as it is, with Woodward,
Lowrie, and Liberty forever. f

Tit for Tat.
The Abolitionists ar crowing lustily over
the decli nation of some of the Democratic
nominees in Minnesota, looking upon it as
a sign of the disruption of Democracy in
that region. But they seem to forget that a
similar trouble has fallen upon their own
party in the great Slate of New York that
some of the Abolition candidates for State
offices nominated by the Syracuse Conven
tion in which assemblage Lincoln's Spring
field Letter-was first read have respectful
ly declined the honor of a defeat, and that
the party leaders have experienced great
difficulty in filling the vacancies upon the
ticket thus occasioned. They should bear
in mind that Minnesota is a sma.l State,
never decidedly and fixedly Democratic,
and therefore the result of the election in
that State, whatever it may be, will not
greatly affect the strength cr prospects of
the Domocracy while, if the declination of
nominees is a sure indication of defeat, as
they allege, they are irretrievably ruined ;
for with the State of New York against
them, in the approaching and Presidential
elections they would be as effect u illy ann
ihilated as it overwhelmed by an avalanche.
"Sii Handrcd Thonsand More"
It is announced by the New York Even
ing Post, that a new conscription of 600,000
men will soon be made. The immediate
necessity for this measure is the defeat of
Rosecrans, becaue of the intermeddling of
the Washington marplots, but so long as
the radicals control the administration, we
need expect no relief from conscriptions
ajid taxes. The present policy rsnders all
Our victories fruitless, and prevents the
Southern people from accepting the conse
quences of their late defeat, because the
question is no longer, whether they are to
vield to the Supremacy of (he Union, but
whether they will submit to the loss of all
they have in the world including their
own lives. Under the circumstances, it is
not surprising that they decline to be hang
ed, and it is the courage and the unanimity
born oft his deiperation, which give them
present powej all over in th Geld, and
render it necessary to call for more men.
Let it be remembered that when the war
began, Mr. Lincoln said that outside of
South Carolina there was not a majority in
any State in favor of Secession,, and tbat
bad knot been for the radical measdres he
has since adopted, the Union people of the
South would have long since put down the
rebellion. The statesmanship which made
thoe men our enemies, and enabled Jeff.
Davis to fill op the armies which have so
often outnumbered our own, is now on trial.
What do the people of Pennsylvania think
of it. PhiTa Age.
Democratic Mass Meeting.
A Democratic Mass Meeting will beheld
at New Columbos, Luzerne county, on
Thcrsdsy the 8th of October 1853, which
will be addressed by General Slurdevant,
Stanly Woodward, and E. B. Chase, Esqrs.,
all ol Wilkesbarre. Preparation is being
made for a large meeting. Th citizens of
New Columbus and vicinity generally turn
out well to political gatherings of the Dem
ocratic stripe. The people ate aroused to
the great issue to be decided at the polls.
The people are becoming tired of this des
potic power. A short reign of terrorism has
completely satisfied them that the Demo
cratie party is the only party competent to
govern the affairs of the country.
Tat Democrats of Pine and adjoining
townships had a meeting , at John LeggottSi
la Serena, on Tuesday of last week, which
was addressed by Hon; L. L. Tate and E.
H. Little, Esq., on the political: questions of
the day. It was a good msetio.
Is It Not So ?
- dne year ago, we were told that the sue
ces of the Republicans at the Fall elections
would show a united North, and lead to a
speedy termination of the wah Have the
promises then made been fulfilled ? Not
one of them ! Onr rulers' have had every
thing they asked office, men and money
without stint. But every one of their meas
ures has made the South, more determined
more desperate. Their schemes to abol
ish slavery, to confiscate southern property,
&o., have made it necessary, if abolition
ism prevails,' to 'exterminate the white race
of the rebelJmus slates. Their practical
abolition of freedom to the Northern white
man, and their stupid projects to make ne
groes superior to the Caucasion race, have
made the South a unit. Is it not time we
had a change in the management Of affairs?
Our interests cannot be made more precari
ous than at the present moment, when no
white roan can tell whether he has a right
which an abolitionist is bound to respect.

give power to the abolitionists, jou may

Since i's organization, fhas created a new
era in the tiitor of
bolealing Teas In this Country.
They have introduced their selections of
TEAS, ard are selling them, at rot over
TWO CEXTS (.02 Cents) per pound
Never deviating from the ONE PRICE
4 nother pecnliarity of the Company is
that their Tea Tater not only devotes
hit lime to the select ion of their TEAS as
to quality, value, and particular t-tles for
particular localities of country, but he
helps the TEA buyer to choose out of their
enormous stock such TEAS as are best
adapted to his particular wants, and not on
ly ibis, but points out to him the be6t .bar
sains. It is esy to see Ihe incalculable advan
tage a Tea Buyer has in this esublihmeril
over all others.
If he is a Judge of Tea, or the Market,
if his time is valuable, he ha all the bene
fits of a well organized system of doing
business, of an immense capital, of the
judgement of a Professional Tea Tater,
and the knowledge of superior salesmen.
This enables all Tea buyer-no matter
if they are thousands of miles from this
market to purchase on as good terms here
as ihe New York Merchants.
Parlies can order Teas will be served by
ns as well as though ihey came themselves
being sure to get original packages, trne
weights and tares; and the TEAS are war
rantted as represented.
We issue a Price List of the Company's
Teas, which will be teal to all who order
it ; comprising
Klysoii, Younsr Ilyson, Impe
rial, Gunpoder. Twankay
OOLONG, SOUCHONG. ORANGE & HY
