pant oar comprehension. These impracti
cables hare at least given an illustration of
the trcth of the old Italian proverb, "Cbi
pritica-con -lapi impara a urlar;" "Who
keeps company with a wolf will lean to
bowl." Tteir continued association and
affitation with the Abolition wolves, have
taught them, their peculiar howl with a ven
geance. They bug the delusion that they
can declare in favor of a continuance of the
war, and jet defeat the party whose only
policy rests upon its continuance, and who,
oat of that continuance, are developing dai
ly the sinews with which to strengthen
ibeir hands, and the military force that is
to concentrate their power. The Pagan
wc?ld might as well have attempted to over
throw ChriMiantty, by .being in favor of sta
ted preachings of the gospel and frequent
rommunioii, as for these War Democrats 'o
expect the, overthrow of Abolitionism by
iha very means which Abolitionism nee to
Mtengtheo and enlarge its power. The fell
agencies of war have generated all the out

cursed. Nay. it has enabled their wretched

And yet these War Democrats in asking for
a vigorous prosecution of this wretched war,

power which heretofore has worked such
fearfcl miichief. There is, there can be no
place of si.fety for the Democracy, except
upon a pisiform that advocates an immedi
atu cessation of this cruel strife, so that the
voice of reason may be heard, and the de
lirium of passion have time to cool. In the
midst of such a calm, we may learn what
the demand of those in arms against us

; " We are sometimes asked what would
be the postive policy of the Democratic
party if restored to power."
"First they would restore the supremacy
of our violated Constitution and -laws, and
with this entire and absolute liberty of
speech, of the press and of the ballot, and
sacred privilege of the habeas corpus.
; They will free the loyal States from the
presence of military encampments and of
all officers and soldiers physically - able to
take the field ; thus re-enforcing our armies
at least one third. -
''They will abolish ' the system of arbi
trary arrests for opinion's sake ; they
will abolish provost marshals and tho en
tire system of military government in the
loyal States.'
"They will offer the rebels fair and hon
orable terms of peace, provided they will
ground the wepons of their rebellion and
come back to the Union offering them the
Constitution of the tJnited States on the
one hand, and a vigorous prosecution of the
war on the other." ' '
Governor Parker, of New Jersey, who
has been called a copperhead and southern
sympathizer by the abolition press, is out
in a stirring proclamation to the people of
bis State, calling upon them to respond to
the President's call for mora troops. He
says :
"I earnestly call vpon all citizens of this
state to use every effort to raise these troops.
The time for work is 6hort, but if the people
of New Jersey, who have hitherto never
faltered in the discharge of duty, will, uni
tedly, and in the proper spirit, at once enter
upon it, with the determination not to fail,
they will succeed. Our armies shoold be
largely reinforced. A crushing blow at the
armed power of the rebellion, if followed
by wise, just, and conciliatory counsels,
will open the door to that peace which we
so much desire, and which has thus far elu
ded U3. The people, amid many discour
aging circumstances, nobly reponded to
my former call lor volunteers. Whatever
may be the' result of this appeal, the evenl3
of the past few months have reflected addi
tional honor on our beloved state. 1 have
confidence that the people will again re
spond, and fill with volunteers not only our
quota of the new call, but also the small
existing deficiency."
Is this the language of a traitor to h'19
country? Or are the men who have so
charged him and Governor Seymour and all
Democrats, base and malignant liars.
All Right The Leaguers, in Philadel
phia, have bound themselves not to associ
ate with Democrats. When one of its mem
bers gives a party, the list of names 10 be
invited has to be audited by the "head" of
the family before the cards are sent forth.
On a recent occasion, the daughter of a
wealthy 'Leaguer," in Arch street, was
about to have a party, and 'he list of young
gentlemen invited had, of course, to
be submitted to papa, fie returned it to
his daughter with one name stricken off.
"What is that for V asked the young laJy.
"He is a Democrat," said the old man,
"yoa most not. invite him". "But," re
plied the young lady, "he i9 the only young
man ol ability and really refined mam ers
on the whole list." The dispuie which
followed caused the party to be postponed,
in this particular instance ; but that kind ol
intolerance is generally practiced among
the League party, in Philadelphia. It would
serve the old fools right if their daughters
should marry only with the shallow cox
combs who are trying to make themselves
the equals of negroes ; but it would be an
awful punishment to the young women.

JTcrms of Peace
- There has not been a moment ; from the
commencement of the .war troubles, that
we could not lay our hand, upon the South
ern pulse and tell its temper. Without now
referring to the intervening ptages, we will
speak ocly of 'its present condition ; thus
speaking we do not hesitate to assert our
entire conviction that the Southern Confed
eracy would agree that the ques'.ion of un
ion or separation would be left to the unbi
ased vote of the fifteen Southern States re
spectively ; and that in order to insure this
unbiased expression ol opinion, such mode
of ascertaining it should be adopted as a
disinterested arbiter, mutually chosen,
should indicate.
The friends of the Union will have every
advantage in such mode of adjustment, be
cause neatly all the loss of life and disabili
ty bas been on the part ot those who fcave
ben driven to choose separation, under the
conviction, by that mode alone could they
escape the evils so distinctly menaced by
the Republican party. Such a mode is cer
tainly that most in accordance with ' the
vital principle of all republican government,
the consent of the governed j" it is more in
accordance with a fraternal, generous ienti
ment, and altogether more consonant with
every ChiisiUn principle, and would stand
in beaut ilul contrast with the mode now in
progress, which, besides rendering us a
stench in the nostrils of civilization, covers
the land ith desolation and mourning, de
moralizing the people, impoverishing the
country, at tne same time that is imposing
a mountain of debt. Lastly, though not
least, it is a mode incomparably better cal
culated to inspire Union feeling in the
Sonth, at least to leave unobstructed that
"natural gravitation of affinity," which John
Qjincy Adams, with equal truth and felici
ty of expression, declared to be the only
force or influence which can harmoniously
and beneficently bold the States together.
We commend this matter to the conscleti'
tious consideration, not only of Christians,
but of all men who really have, or profess
to have, any regard for the true principles
of republican liberty, and who wish to
avoid that fate, which, otherwise, would
seem to bo inevitable, a settled despotism,
the dark shadows of which already darken
the land in all its length and breadth. N.

A party of gentlemen visited some of our
citizens last Friday night. But coming at
an unreasonable hour, did not find them
waiting to receive them. Baing on a col
lecting tour, as it appears, they entered the
coal office of Mr. Mordecai and made an
assessment, the amount of which we have
not learned. Calling upon Mr. Lewis, a
merchant tailor, they took upwards of $125
worth of jewelry from his store. From the
store of Mr. Lo'vensteio they obtained SI 8
ir. money and about S3T worth of goods.
Visiting Schwab's tobacco store they made
a raise of near $30 in money, a lot of se
gars and tobacco and some pipes and other
articles from the show case, including four
fancy pipes that were worth S7 a piece
Visaing the Saloon of James Campbell,
they took what loose change they found in
his drawer, amounting to S2 or $3, and
undoubtedly helped themselves to some
thing to cheer up the inner man, after which
they decamped. Perhaps the strongest
thing connected with their visits was, that
they did not leave their cards as is usual in
good society when parties are not found at
home, they also omitted to leave receipts
for what. they took, so that it might be cred
ited to the proper person's accounts. Sup

The Heavy Gust of Wind on last Friday
afternoon blew dowu the brick front of the
new Baptist Church, in this place, which
is now in the course of erection. It also
blew down both sides of the new German
Catholic church near the residence of Sam
uel Yorks. The walls bad just been finish
ed to their full height readr to receive the
rafters. Our friend Emanuel Peters, com
inrr down Mill street with a covered wagon
had the top thereof most unceremoniously
lifted' off by the wind, and he himself
barely escaped with his whole head, which
was left bare of covering, his hat going in
company with the wagon top. In the coun

tered over the fields, fences lorn down, and
various other pranks played by old Boreos,
who seemed to be on a rampage just then.

party was driven across yesterday by an

bank both infantry and artillery were dis

they thought wan a reconuoissance in force
or a movement to crossj but no heavy guns
opened on either side, and there war but
little carbine firing.

About 150 ol our men, who were woun
ded in the battle at Kelly's Ford on Satur
day, reached this city yesterday. From
their reports, and the information derived
from other sources, we make up some ac
count of the affair. Hoke's and Hayes" brig
ade, of Early's Division, with two batteries
i of arillery, were oa picket duty north of
i the Rappahannock, at Kelly's Ford. The
two brigades numbered only about 2 000
Ar.out twelve 0 clock the enemy made a
sud.ten ant! unexpected attack in such force
that their skirmishers alone seemed to out
numbered our whole force, and so quietly
had they approached that they seemed to
our men to have risen out of the ground.
They were evidently well informed ol our
force and position, and had come down to
surround and capture us. With this intent,
their first effort was to cut us off from the
As they were forcing their way toward

six hundred of our men succeeded in reach

600 escaped.

The armies still confront each other in
Tennessee, and the struggle may be renew
ed there at any moment. The lull there
can be only temporary, for the indications
are too clear to doubt that the enemy is de
termined and preparing lor battle. Tiie
correspondent of the Atlanta Intelligencer
writes from Missionary Ridge :
'Our extreme right now occupies Loudon,
the enemy having evacuated their fortifi
cations on our approach, which now gives
os the command of the Tennessee river at
that point, and brings onr forces within
twenty-three miles of Knoxville, under
cover of the enemy's own works. It is ex
pected that there will be important move
ments in this direction at some future day,
as our near proximity to Burnside's army
must naturally suggest.

ally on these dreary heights and swampy
valleys. The health of our men, consider
ing their late exposure to cold rains, is very
good. The most of the men now in our
army have become well seasoned and har
dened to camp life and duties. A number
however, are suffering from cold, &c, but
no serious complaints. Three thousand
fine heavy English blankets have been dis
tributed among Breckinridge's Division,
which were greatly needed ; and il the
Government and people will continue to
provide for our soldiers they will gradually
be more comfortable. Our bands play nighl
and morning, and our boys are cheerful and
in good spirits."
Brandy Station and Kelly's Ford Iil-Oraen-rd
From ihe same Paper Nov. 10.
The unexpected misadventure on the banks
of Ihe Rappahannock occupies public atten
tion in a most disagreeable manner, but the
scanty intelligence received from that quar
ter is still insufficient to understand or esti
mate it fully. It is said that the cavalry
had been ordered lothe rear for the purpose
of recruiting their horses, and hence the
enemy was enabled to attack without ordi
nary warning or preparation. It is also re
ported that Hayes' brigade did not number
t more than five or six hundred men, and
that the loss in prisoners was, therefore,
very much below what has been supposed
However thee thing may be, let us hope
that an event so serious and mortifying
may have the good effect of putting a con
clusion to the series of similar accidents
which have rendered the neighborhood of
Brandy Station and Kelly's FoTd an ill
omened ground. What else may come of
it will be so speedily known that specula
lion would be imprudent. Natoraliy it
might be supposed that the success should
tempt Meade to immediate battle on an
extensive scale. But he is cautious. He
is unwilling to tread the path of his prede
cessors. Ihe "capture of two brigades"
may be sufficient to give him a new lease
of that life which the next general action,
undertaken by order from Washington, will
probably terminate.
A Visit to Gen. Lce'i Army.
A correspondent of the Raleigh (North
Carolina) Progress, on a visit to General
Lee's army, writes: "I rode over yester
day to Gen. Lee's headquarters, which con
sisted of a cluster of cloth tents pitched in
a grove of oaks, surrounding an old meeting
house. 1 found Gen. Lee sitting by a lou
fire at he mouth of hi& tent, with one of
his aids, enjoy ins a social conversation over
a late Yankee newspaper. Upon my ap
proach, the old hero, without any formality
roue and gave me a cordial welcome to his
headquarter. (I had his acquaintance be
fore hi.) Gen'l Lee is in blooming healih
and spoke hopefully of our cause, and con
fidently of oar final triumph in this bloody
struggle for Southern independence. He
remarked, "ft is with us independence or
" I have traveled over many miles of this
Culpeper, and the adjoining counties, once
blooming as a garden, but now, a far as
the eye can reach, is one wide wate and
desolation. The Yankee have, destroyed
nearly everything. The palace and the ne
gro quarters are torn from their foundations
to furnish material for their winter quarters;
the fences are all burned; the luxuriant
fields no longer wave with cultivated crops;
not a enw, or a horse, or a four-footed beast
of any kind, is left to disturb the melan
choly 6ilence. Even the birds seem to
have taken their flight to climes further

Special Orders. We desire this year
to place before a million of northern read
ers the great doctrines "The Day B.-ok"
teaches on the question of the Races. We
confidently believe if this Journal were
placed in the hands of one half of the vo
ters of the northern Sates between thi time
and November, 1864, the Democrats could
not fad to carry lle next presidential elec
tion. We therefore make the fallowing
offers, not in the light of prizes, and not
even because i' wilt be profitable, for we
can scarcely afford it but solely to secure
a wide dissemination of the views which
we profoundly believe will save our coun
try. Clubs of Twenty. For a club of 20,
besides the extra paper now offered, we
will send a copy of Dr. Van Evrie'ii great
work on "negroes and negro lavery," the
third edition of which isjusl ready. Price

Clubs of Fifty. For a club of Fifty
subscribers, at 10, we will send one extra
paper, and a complete set of our Ami Abo
lition Publications," ihe price of which,
takeji together, amount to 2 75.
Clubs of One Hundred. In relation
to Club of o'te hundred, we will say this:
Whoever will send u oie hundred sub
