Peeped thro' the gathering gloom ;
And silence brooded o'er the type

The printers bad to supper gone,
And vacant were their places,
When through the door a villain crept,
And stole Dick Johnson's spaces.
O, foulest wrong beneath the sun !

Is mat of stealing spaces.

All othor sins erases.

Analogy is one of the most prominent
principles in creation. Everything is a type
f something else; everything represents
and foreshadows it next highest link.
Alan is the great obvious prototype of all

mal represents one particular passion ; the
character of every man gathers op and com
pounds in itself all the passions. And
whatever animals approach nearest to this

' Now what is the dislingnising trait of
dogs ? "Why,'' you say, "according to the

Within the range of this one class ol

Eow the Pennsylvania Election was Carried!
The Pittsbnrg Post reveals the means by
which the administration worked up its
large majority in Alleghany county :
The election in the cities of Pittsburg and
Alleghany, and throughout the county, so
far as we heard from it, was one which
will be remembered by the Democrats who
participated in it as long as they live. We
have heard of outrages upon the sacred
right of suffrage, but never until yesterday,
did we know the extent to which reckless
partisan oppression was capable df going.
Men having a indisputable right to vote
were prevented from doing so, while fel
lows who never knew what a
tax receipt j
was walked boldly to the polls and were
received by leading abolitionists with open
arms. Money was scattered about in profu
sion, tempting the needy and encouraging
the reckless; in short, there was no appli
ance which money and desperation could
command that was not arrayed against us
in yesterday's contest. The consequence is,
of course, that we are beaten beyond our
expections. And no wor.der. In addition
to the powerful influence of money.we had
to contend against camps of soldiers having
no right to vote in this country, but who, of
course went almost unanimous for Curtin.
The following letter, to the Philadelphia
Age is to the same point :
Pittsburg, Octobar IS.
Messrs Editors :Tell our friends not to
pay over any bets of Alleghany against
Berks till further devised. There are most
outrageous frauds here, now being develop
ed, and which can easily be proved.
One of these was perpetrated in the First
ward of this city, where, besides polling
for Curtin perhaps two hundred illegal
votes, they make Woodward's vote only
seventy-seven ; Lowrie receives one hun
dred and eighty men will swear they voted
for Woodward, and those who prepared
and distributed the tickets will swear that
Woodward's name was in them all. The tal
ly list squares with the ballots, and the only
explanation is that about one hundred and
twenty Woodward tickets were thrown
out and replaced with a like number with
Cunin's name on them. In Wilkinsburg a
wholi camp voted, some of them from Cana
da. It is intended to protest against these
districts to-day before the return judges,
and then to go on with legal resistance.
We polled 19,000 votes, a thousand more
than in 1860, and . yet we are beaten

The Army Testimonial to MeClellan.
There is no other thins which the radl-
cals have made Such noise about of hte as
the proposed army testimonial to Gen. Me
Clellan. The constant cry. that it has Drov-
ed a failure, is on a par. with all their other
falshoods in regard to that gallant officer,
and it is further proof that they fear McClel
lan's abillity. Were he so poor art officer,
and possessed 80 little talent as they claim
he does, there would be no attacks upon
him. The fact is, they know that he is
one of the ablest Union generals. Hence
their constant assaults upon bim to poison
the public mind.
In regard to the testimonial by the army
to MeClellan, its success was far bevond
the anticipations of the friends of that gen
eral. The basis for subscriptions for pri
vates was ten cents each ; but in mar y in
stances they refused to limit themselves
to that figure. In most instances tb3 rank
and file took hold of it with great enthasiam.
In one division alone the sum of ten thous
and dollars was raised. The only instance
where there were any objections raised
were in a New York regiment, .whose Col.
when raising his regiment, publicly an
nounced that he would have no one but
Abolitionists in his regiment, and a Mich
igan regiment and one other from tho West.
These regiments were all that made any
objections. When the order was issued
putting a stop to the subscription, the round
sum of thirty thousand dollars had been
supscribed. Here is the secret of the order
being issued, and the animosity of Stanton
and comrany. Had the plan proved a
failure no order would have fever been is
sued to prevent the circulatiou of the sub
scription papers in the army. The failure
of the men to subscribe would have been
just the pvidence the radicals wan ed ag
ainst MeClellan ; but their taking hold of it
with enthusiasm roused the petty jealons
ies of Stanton and his clique- In order,
therefore, to prevent the fact that the army
still adhered to their devotion to their for
mer gallant commander being k.nown, an
order was issued to prevent the subscrip
tion being taken, and the money was re
funded. Most of the officers contributed liberally;
other manifested their regrets that they
were so situated that they dared not take
hold of the matter and push it as they desi
red to, fearing that if they did the)1 would
be degraded by the War Office at Washing
ton. The treatment of Colonel Davis, of
the staff of General Meade, shows how
well founded were fheir suspicions.
Colonel Davis held a position on General
Meade's staff, with the rank of colonel.
Being an ardent admirer of General MeClel
lan, he look an active part in circnU'ing the
paper, and in swelling the amount subscri
bed. The refill is that - Colonel Davis'
rank was reduced to that of major, and he
taken Ircm General Meade's staff and sent
off to Santa Fe. Other officers are being
treated in a similar manner, and efforts
are being made to degrade all officers who
took prominent part in the work. Could
party meanes, petty jealousies and des
potic power go further ? N. Y. HearU,
The nation is greatly indebted to senator
Sumner for a candid avowal of the purpose
of the radical party in the prosecution of
the war. In the October number of the
Atlantic Monthly, in a labored ailicl-e, he at
much length announces and vindicates
the policy of his party. That policy, or the
end to be attained by the war, i this, in
his own language : ''The soil (of the rebel
States) may be divined among patriot sol
diers, poor whites and freedmen." This
in connection with amalgamation as recent-
jv advocated by another leader, constitutes
the programme of the party.
This policy necessarily require the ex
termination or the expulsion of thft whole of
the present white population of the South.
This is in order to make rocm for that "im
proved class of population" promised by
one of the most influential leaders from his
eat in Congress. That is for tho present
white population there is to be stipslituted
a hypridrace an amalgamation cross be-
lweeri ,he Abolitionist and the negro. Such
crosses usually result i n a deterioration of
both the original stocks. Whether in this
instance it would be likely to improve the
Abolitionist we are not prebared to say,
but all men of observation will agree that
it must materially injure the negro. It
may suit the peculiar tastes of Senator
Snmner and other male Abolitionists to give
their personal aid toward the proprosed
amalgamation, bnt the impution of similar
tastes to the female Abolitionists is incred.

Lost in an Alabama Cave.
An army correspondent, writing from
Cave Spring Alabama, gives the following
incident ol an adventure in a cave near that
Halfway up the mountain is the en
trance to what is termed "Saltpetre Cave."
The rebels have worked it since the open
ing of the war, and the material, it is said,
besides being plentiful, pecpliarly valuable.
Excited by the fclories concerning the cave,
I repaired, with a small company and a
piece of candle, to the big thing urder
ground. Half bent over we entered the
cave, a strong current of cold, chilly air al
most extinguishing our lights. The pas
sage way is exceedingly narrow, and at
some points it was only after the greatest
exertion that we succeed isqsneezine thro.
Hundreds of dark isles led from the main
passage, and following wh'ch and explor
i ng the principal chambers in a direct line
with the way we were moving along, we
left the main passage, and, crawling on our
hands and knees a distanc of 20 or 30 feet
rose in a spacious chamber, hung with
dripping stalactite?, and quaintly carved,
apparantly by master artists.
Led by a spirit of adventure and an insa
tiable curiosity, we traveled on trom cham
ber to chamber, climbing huge rocks to
higher r.isles, descending ledges, crawling
and stooping at intervals, until sheer ex
haustion dictated a halt. Turning in what
we Aipposed the direction of the cave's
mouth, we traversed path after path, crept
through narrow fissures, and passed thro'
lofty chambers that echoed and re-echoed
our hasty footsteps, until a light appeared.
The -sound of a voice reached us, and ir a
moment a negro appeared who crept thro'
a small aperture, having evidently been
wandering about for hours in these labyr
inthian passages, unable to Effect an exit.
His frightened features had their effect on
ns, and we began seriously to discuss
whether we knew the way from the cave.
Apprehensions quicken t.ur frteps, and,
hurrying forward, we entered what seemed
a familiar apartment that offered safe egress
to the main passage. To our surprise there
was but one way of exit, and . that by the j
lost. An other hour passed in a fruitless
effort to etricate ourselves. Hope had al
most expired, and huge drops of sweat ooz
ed from our over excited foreheads. Our
candles were almost burnt out. No foot-i
neps where we were. Night was coming
on. Headquarters would doubtless be' re
moved .belore dawn on the following day,
and a night in this dismal cavern, with a
prospect of being left to starve seemed in
evitable. We have been separated from the main
party, and here we stood, fear-relaxed,
gasping as though the air grew hotter every
minute, every sense of hearing employed
its fullest capacity. The negro was speech
less. He was as firm as the lofty walls of
rock that shut us in. He was slightly bent
forward, his eye wide open and his lips
agape, a perfect statue of a sable Hamlet
listening for voices from the spirit world.
His appearance was ludicrous, but I had no
disposition to laugh. My muscles were re
laxed. I grew pale; my clothes were sat
urated with perspiration.

The Value of Aigscr Troops.
A Morris Island correspondent of the
Syracuse (N. Y. Courier says:
"Of the colored troops I have a few words
to say. There are several regiments on
the Island, and I have seen enough to en
able me to decide with tolerable accuracy
on their real merits. When detailed to
work on the fortifications, as they frequen
tly are by the side of white regiments, thoy
act like a pack of cowards, but little work
can be got out of them ; when in a fight
they act the same way, unless they happen
to get into a tight place, then they fight like
mad men and tigers, for they expect no
mercy if taken prisoners. Many of the
Northern Abolition papers speak in high
laudation of the bravery of the colored
troops, but 1 must confess I can't see the
point. Give me the old White Volunteer sol
diers and you bve something reliable in
rough and tumble warlare. However, if
the niggers can be made to fight, all right

as many more two-thirds of the whole

The Kissing Deacon.
In one of our New England towns lived
Deacon Brown, a staid, dignified sort of a
Christian, and model of propriety. Deacon
Brown had the misfortune to lose his wife,
and at the age of forty ionnd himself
with a family of four small children,
without a mistress to his farm house. As
he ronld not immediately take another wife
and avoid exciting scandal, and could not
get along without some one to take charge
of the kitchen and nursery, he bad re
course to employing a young woman as i
house-maid. Nancy Sterns was a laugh
ing, romping beauty, who delighted in ex
perimenting upon the Deacon by way of
testing the strength of human nature. For
a long time the Deacon was invulnerable ;
but at last, in a moment of unguarded weak
ness, he was led into temptation, and into
committing a "slight indiscretion" with his
beautiful honsemaid. When in his wanted
coolness and presence of mind, he was hor
rified at the eiiormity of his sin. In vain
he repented and grieved over lost virtue.
Finally as a last effort for easing his con
science, at the conclusion of the services
on the following Sabbath morning, he
arose and requested the forbearance of the
brethren arid 6'isiers a few moments, when
he electrified them by making the follow
ing confession :
"ily Christian friends, yon all know that
I lost my dear wife tome mouths a?o,(sobs
and tears,) and that Nancy Sterns has been
keeping house for me ; and you know that J
I have a little child not a year olJ. Well,
that little child would cry in the night, and
it would be a long time before I could quiet
it ; and last Tuesday night God forgive
me 1 the child cried so hard that Nancy
arose and came into the room, and leaned
over the bed to hut-h the child and, broth
ers and sisiers, her leaning over me made
me forget Christ 1"
Here the worthy deacon broke down en
tirely, and stood weeping, wailing and
blowing his nose.
"What did you do 1" sternly demanded
"I 1 I ki ssed her!" stammered out
the deacon, between his sobs, "but 1 have
. . .
been very sorry about it, and prayed to be
forgiven and I want you to forgive me
and pray for me, brothers and enters."
As the deacon bowed himself upon his
seat like the mighty oak before the tornado,
Deacon Good'eliow arose ai.d astonished
the audierice s'ill mora, by sayinj :
"Brothers and sisters, you have heard
what brother Brown has said, and now he
wants our forgiveness. For my part, I
think brother Eroivn is truly penitent, and 1
am willing to forgire him with my whole
heart. And, brothers and sisters, I will add
still further, that, if I had a wife, and a pret-

The resident's Proclamation.
Mr. Lincoln's Proclamation of this date,
calling for three hundred thousand more
soldiers, and notifying the back States of
another draft within eighty days, was deter
mined upon several weeks ago, at the ur
gent solicitation of Messrs Satanton and
Hallck. who told the President that thre
territory it now occupies : and this surprise
or dissatisfaction whatever it may be
most give way to a calm and rational acqui
escence in and a determination to support
the measure otherwise, just as Messrs.
Stanton and Halieck say, the war may take
five years to fight it out.
f have be'ore referred to the fact that the
idea of resigning the President! chair
without bringing the war his war, as he
evidently regards it to a successful close,
begins to be the nightmare of Mr Lincoln's
dreams; and should hi military subordi

of March, 186 1, ha will immediately call
fot them by proclamation, and get them by

Rich aiinisters in icw York.
A New York correspondent of the Bos
ton Post, in'the course of gossipping letter
to that journal, touches on the subject of
"rich ministers" in Gotham. At the head
of the list the writer places, as ot course,
Acrhipishop Hughes, whose private prop
erty (he says) amounts to the snug sum of
a round million of dollar. He is the mill
ionaire minister par excellence. In the Lu
theran Church there is a Rev. J. W. Geis
enhainer, who is reckoned worth $250 000.
and whose secular hours are for the mott
part occupied in forging "the silken chain
that binds two willing heart." Thousands
of couples, matrimonially inclined, have,
by his did, reached thd consumation de
voutly wished, ilis residence, in Four
teeth street, is literally besieged by the
crowds who desire to exchange the true lov
er's knot for the Gordian knot which noth
ing but death can cut.
Among the Dutch Reformed clergymen,
Rev. A R. Von Nest ranks as the richest.
This gentleman has one or two hundred
thousand dollars now, and "has good herit
age" in prospect of half a million more
when his wealthy father reaches the shin
ing shore. Rev. Dr. Hardenbergh, of the
same denomination is estimated worth a
hundred thousand dollars. The Presbyte
rians, perhaps, have more rich ministers
than any other denomination. At the !
head of the list the Nestor of the Church
in this city stands Dr. Spring, clamm ven
eralle nomcn, who is easily worth a hundred
thousand dollars, and whote young and in
teresting bride is set down as having three
hundred thouand more. Rev. Dr. Adams
no one thinks of estimating at less than one
hundred thousand dollars. Rev. Dr. Potts
and Rc-v. Dr. Phillips each arc worth fifty
thousand, atid teveral others of the Presby
terian clergy are equally able to keep the
woif from the door. Bishop James, of the
M. E. Church, possesses treasures on earth
to the value of one hundred thousand dol
lars, and so does the Rev. James Floy, the
best politician in that denomination.
Among the Baptists, Rev. Dr. Dowling and
Sommers are set down at thirty thousand
apiece, and Rev. S. A. Corey, at about
twentv thousand dollars. Rev. Mr. Beech-
er and Dr. R. S. Storis, of Brooklyn, own
J fine residences, and are called worth twen
I ty or thirty thousand each.

l.ei that a'year ago a boy imbecile in
mind arrived at the port of Philadelphia,
from Europe, and brought to William
sport, where his parents reside. Several
months ago he strayed from the residence
of bis parents, and by some means found
his way to Philadelphia, where the substi
tute sharks got hold of him, and got a board
of enrolement to accept him as a substitute
no doubt paying the members ot the
board a portion of the substitute money.
The boy was given eighty dollars as his
share, and during the first night af;er his
acceptance the money was stolen from his
pocket in all probability by the very men
who gave it to bim. After being sent to
camp where, of course his conduct was

all concerned, and perhaps will yet be ex

from camp to Williamsport and back again,
and given tickets for Curtin and Agnow,
with instructions how to obtain their accep

would be shot if he did not vote them, and

officers, notwithstanding he is a minor, a

lee for Diptheria
A correspondent ol the Providence Jour
nal vouches for the efficacy of ice as a cure
for diptheria, croup and all ordinary in
fiammaiion of the throat. The manner of
application is as follows:
"Break up a small lump cf ice in a towel
arid put the peiceo in a bowl. Take posi
tion slightelyinclinedtbackwafds, either oa
a chair or on a sofa. Proceed for half an
hour with a teaspoon to feed yourself with
small lumps ot ice, letting them dissolve
slowly in the back part ot the mouth or lhe
entrance of the throat. A single such ap
plication will often break up a common sore
throat, which otherwise would have a
course ol two or three day; In case of a
bad sore throat, use the ice frequently aod
freely. In case of ulceration or diptheria,
keep a small lump of ice constantly in the

effeciion which comprises those
known under the various names of bad
Sore throat, angina.cronp and the French
angins couenirur,hasjhiiherio been consid
ered one of the most difficult to cure. We
some I'me back gave an account of Dr
Trideau's method, which consists in ad'
ministering borax, under the form of a syr
up ; but we now find in the Revue Thera
peutique, a paper by Dr. A. De. Grand Bou
logne, Vice Consul at Havana, in which he
mentions ice as an infallible specific. As
this, from its extreme simplicity, would, if
effective, be far superior to any yet tried;
we cannot refrain from quoting the cases
mentioned by the author, who had publish
ed this remedy as far back as February,
1850, and consequently complains, (not
without reason, if its efficacy is such as be
describes it) of the inexcusable negligence
of practitioners in not taking notice of it,
thereby allowing many valuable live to be
lost. The following cases came under his
obsurvation after that date. In March and
April, 1861, the disease in question broke
out under an epidemic, and chiefly attack
ed adults with such virulence that in one
week three young women died in one
bouse. Ooe of Dr. De Grand's patients, "
afflicted with plephacite, was sized with it
and as he could not immediately attend,
owing to the severity of the case, another
physical! was called in, who ordered eme
tics and aiiiminou gargle, which proJuced
no effect. At lengtn Dr De. Grand came
and fotind the totifil grately swollen, and a
lalse membrane covering them. He im
mediately administered small pieces of ice,
and by the (oilowii.g morning the tumefao- -lion
ot the tonsils had din inir-hed by half,
and the lal-e membrane had nearly disap
peared. That very evening she was enable
:o take food. Profiting by ibis example, a
few days after her brother was was seized
with sore throat, presenting the same pre
liminary symptoms as thce oi his sister,
but he without waiting for the doctor, look
some ice, and was rid of his sore throat io
in a lew hours. Some days la'er Dr. De
Grand was summoned to a young lady who
had been laboring under the disease for
some forty-eight hour', all remedies had
l;iiie I, and the parents, relations and
friend of the lamilv were plunged in the
deepest sorrow. When Dr. De. Grand or
dered ice a general crv of astonishment was
uttered by all present. Ice for a sore throat !
lrii,o-itle. It was. sheer murder! Dr.
De Grand maintained his ground, und after
much expostulation, during which time
was lost, he obtained his end. Before
twenty-four hours were over, the patient
was in full convalescence. Bing at Vera
Cruz on a mission, he was requested to see
a young man who was attacked witU mali
gnaiiLore throat and had been treated
without effeot by cauterization with hyd
rochSjvic acid and astringent gargles Here,
again, he had to battle wiih the prejudices
of the family, bnt at length allowed to ad
minister ice. The yonng man recovered
in the cou4?e of U e lollo wing day Dr. D
Grand has now beeii using this remedy for
the last twelve years, without having met
with a single failure.
