Mr. Hale presented his petition to the San

have been' prefaced with a preamble, in
th jsa woids :
Gentlemen, members of Congress,
Whereas at the commencement ot the ses
sion, you and each of you took your solemn
oaths io the presence of God and on the
Hal)' Evangelist-, t!iat you would support
the Constitution of the United States, now
therefore, we pray yon to take immediate
tops to break op the Union and overthrow

we.will over pray,
Among: those who voted for the receo-
tisn of the petition were Salmon P. Chase,
of Chio,-and William H. Seward, ot New
York, both members of the Lincoln Cabinet
Both these gentlemen have recently made
speeches, in which they undertook to stig
ittatizs their political opponents as "disun
ionists." and "disloyalists." ' Trulr such
words come well from the lips of men who
voted "aje" to the dissolution of the Union,
fourteen years ago !
These are some of Pee John's great Un
ion men, who did all they could to dissolve
the Union fourteen yeas ago, and what evi
dence bive we that they are doing any
tiling different to day ! Thej are the origin
nal disnnienists. and through their treach

A RiPUBLiciN member of Congress says,
"thougti Mr. Lincoln is not perbap a man

: A Mistake. A ruruor prevailed in town
lor eevijral days last week that Peter Walsh,
Esq., one of the representatives of this
couruj in ae legislature, had been killed
oa the railroad somewhere near Elmira, N.
Y, We are glad of the opportunity to state
that each is not the fact. . We saw a brother
of MrJ Walsh on Friday, who informed ns
that P;ler, in stepping from the wrong side
ol lha ear at lthica, was considerably hurt
thai cue or two ol his ribs had been broken,'
bet thiit he was in a fair way ot recovering.
We hops, therefore, not only to see Mr.
Va!! ia a bort time folly restored to
hsi.h; but that he "will le enabled to dis-cba-ca

A few days after the election a landlord
of a one-horse tavern in Phillipsburg, Cen tra
connty, " flung from a window; of his
house a, flag bearing the inscription -'Death
to Copperheads I" The flag was op but a
short time, for the Democrats of the village"
armed them selve and repaired to the tavern
and demanded the landlord to take it down,
or, refusing to do so, take the consequences.
He took it down, and saved hit neck.
The Harrisburg Telegraph, whose pro
prietor is an office-holder, under Lincoln,
and whose editor is a stipendiary under
Curtin, in speaking of the above circum
stance, ues this language "So Jar as the
death rtfa Copperhead it concerned, that is as
desirable as the dea'h of an armed traitor!"
Sol Then the 254.171 citizens of Penn
sylvania who voted for Judge Woodward
deserve death, do they ! Is that; what we
understand the Telegraph to suggest, and
was this the meaning of the inscription on
the flag of the Phillipsburg tavern keeper ?
It would seem so, fur no other meaning
can be taken from the flag inscription and
the sentence we have quoted from the Telt-graph-1
It is nothing more nor less than a
bold intimation to Republicans to com
mence the work of assassination. The
scoundrel who could be guilty of making
such a suggestion deserves to be whipped
to a jelly, and then burned to ashes.
- But, let us assure our Democratic, fellow
citizens that there is meaning in the above
threats. The same threat has been made
by no less a personage than the Secretary
of War. A number of Abolition officers
have also repeatedly declared that they
would "rtf her shoot ' a Coppeihead fDemo-
crat ) than a rebel." This language has been (
used Dy "picayune Butler," Jim Lane Pope
Montgomery, and other gentry wearing
shoulder-straps. It was used, too, with the
approval of that man of big feet and no
brains, Abraham Lincoln, for it is notorious
that all the officers and menials who indul
ged in this infamous slang have been ten
derly cared for by the administration. : ,
: Would it not be well, therefore, for our
Democratic friends to think of thee things,
and be prepared to protect themselves in
the event of the Abolitionists daring to put
their threats into execution ? The stay-at-home
men of that accursed party or faction
are arming now; one of the objects of those
treasonable organizations, called "Loyal
Leagues,'7 is to arm v.en and drill them.
This has been ascertained to a certain'y.
We advise no violence ; our party is now,
as it always has been, law-abiding ; but
the Abolitionists are threatening Demo
crats tbey say we deserve death ; they
fling flags to the breeze bearing the inscrip
tion '-deitth to copperheads," and we feel dis
posed to burl back their threats into their
teeth and bid them defiance.
We hope never to see anarchy and blood
shed in Pennsylvania, but yet we may see
this very state of affairs. The clouds are
black, lowering and por entous ; mad men
are in authority j corruption and rascals are
at a premium, and the gaunt abolition wolf
howls and thirsts for blood and plunder.
Our duty as Democrats is plain it is to
prepare lor the worst, and defend ourtelves
if assailed. We hope the Abolitionists not
are in earnest; we hope their insolent mena
ces are only the abolitions of coward hearts
and nerveless arms. Bat if it should prove
otherwise, and the scoundrels who have
recommended the assassination of Demo
crats attempt to execute their designs, then
God help some men. Then lha Democrats
cannot be overpowered by "greenbacks,"
nor defeated by a contemptible minority.
Then oar reckless opponents will certainly
discover that there is truth in the old max

Why is it that those who desire to destrov
the Democratic feature in our government
should seek their object through the con
solidation of all power in one geneial gov
ernment ? It can be for no ' other purpose
than o establish a despotism through the
agencies of which they may perpetuate
their power. The history of all the great
question which have divided the Demo
cratic party and the Federal, makes this
clearly manifest." The Federal part jv in
order to attain their ends, found it necessary
to increase the powers of the General Gov
ernment at the expense of the just rights of
he Stales, by constructions oi the Consti
tution, which were false and calculated to
pervert the true objects of that instroment.
Their whole theory of our Government has
conformed,' not to the Constitution, but to the
secret objects of their pursuit. The Abo
lition Radicals of today, the residuary lega
tees of Federalism, maintain that there is
one consolidated American peoDle. whose
sovereignty is represented by the Federal
Government, which, as they assert, is con
stituted through some, or all of its depart
ments, the supreme and rightful judge of its
own rights and powers. - To secure this po
sition, they deny that our Constitution is a
compact, or that there now exist separate
parties to it. They deny that there is any
separate sovereignty in the people of the
various Slates, or that there exists any
right of resistar.ee, or countervailing legis
lation in the States, no matter how palpable
might be the violations of the Constitution ;
but each individual is remitted lor relief to
the Geueral Government against i:s own
aggression, or else .to rebellion. If they
can thus make the Federal Government,
through some or all ol its department, the
supreme judge of it own lights and acts,
and sweep from its . path the only parlies
able and. competent to resist it, they ac
complish their main object in securing its
undisputed approach, to unlimited power.
For the rsst, it would be wonderful if the
even necessary ambiguities of every, writ
ten instrument would-not enable them to
make tome show of claiming, under the
Constitution, powers which - were really
usurped, when there existed no parties on
the other side who were competent to reier
t ho dispute for adjustment to any tribunal oth
er than the very Government which wasac
cused of usurpation. That this is tie de
sign of the Abolition Radicals is apparent
by the tone of their presses, the sentiments
of their orators, a&d the open expressions
of their politicians. Tha tremendous pow
ers wielded by the General Government to
day, through the immense -number of sol
diers and officials dependent upon it for
support, are such as were never dreamed
of even by the most extreme Federalist of
our early age. This cry for n strong gov
ernment, that, originating at Washington,
is caught up by every Abolition press, is
the evidence of the criminal designs of thee
Radicals who instigated and inaugurated
civil war, that they might build up a des
potism on the ruins of a free republic. The
only thing now to avert the calamity rests
io the resistance of the people through the
ballot-box ; and then, if that avenue is clos
ed, by revolution. N. Y. Daily News.
Bcrning out Old Scores. Tha ques
tion is sometimes aked in reference to the
suppression of this rebellion, What will
you do with them after you have conquer

nence seem to fled in this inquiry the chief
obstacle to the military solution of the great
fend prevailing here. It is not such "a lion
in the path" as is supposed. When the in
surgent armies are fairly broken tip, and
the authority of the government is restored,
there will doubtless come a settlement with
the arch leaders of the rebellion, bet to the
Southern masses there will be simp!y a rub
bing out of old scores. The Democracy lakes
satisfaction in avowing that it has never
cherished any malice towards the people of
ihe Southern States. Its relations with them
were always friendly. It slid desires to pre
serve those relations. There can be no
prosperous system unless a fraternal feel
ing shall prevail. The Democracy is in
arms to restore the Union. It has no politi
cal dogmas other than this to advance. Let
these people come back. Let them elect.
Congressmen as of yore. Let them recog
nize the old flag, tha old Constitution, and
the old government, and Democracy will
bnry the hatchet, and consent to a generous
amnesty for all past bickerings and disa
greements. It is chiefly to secure this wise, friendly
and permanent adjustment, that is impor
tant for the Democratic party once more to
resume the control of public affairs. Let
us discard all lesser issues, and organize
ourselves compactly for this great end, the
prompt suppression of the armed front of
the rebellion, for the real preservation of
the Union, and its orderly institutions. All

tions of peace, or upon any other issue are,

whose remains had not " ye: moulded into

Everett's little heart beat as, calmly as a

The Philadelphia North American gives
some excellent sdvice to those who wish to
invest money. It is well lor all who are in
funds to heed tha counsel: ' Though money
has been tempvrarily scarce, capital con
tinues abundant; and the recent tumble in
the stock market has brought capitalists to
a realizing seose of the unreliable charac
ter of many o.r the securities dealt in. It is
greatly to the credit of the Government thai
its loans, of all the securities daily delt in
on the market, have maintained their in
tegrity of price better taan almost anything
else. Its Five Twenty year six per cent,
loan, the iutere&t on which is promptly
paid in gold, has been subscribed to, all
through the pressure in ths money market,
at an average of more than two millions
per day. And what is not ihe least gratify
ing fact iu connection wi;h the daily large
subscriptions to this popular loan, scarcely
any of it is relumed to the market for sale.
It ii taken for investment, and is held with
unfaltering confidence in its reliability.
And why should it not be ? It is seen that
the Government now, after two years of the
most gigantic war that the world has ever
known, experiences no cifficuhy in com
manding the necessary means to prosecute
it, or in paying regularly the interest in
gold as it tails' doe. If this can be done
while the war is being waged, who can an
ticipate any difficulty in leadily accomplish
ing it when the war shall be ended ? What
better investment then, for capital, than the
"Five Twenty" Government loan ? But if
any doubt, let him refer te the statistics
furnished by the census tables of the vari
ous nations of the world. The facts which
they present will prove lha most satisfac
tory mode of dispelling the numberless
gloomy apprehensions which are being
continually conjured up bv those who are
disposed to exaggerate :he extent of the
calamity occasioned by our rebellion. A
reference to the state of most of the pros
perous nations of the old world clearly dis
proves such i position, and shows that the
highest conditions of cational advancement
have not been materially affected by the
extended wars in which those nations have
been immemorially engaged, and that a
heavy national indebtedness has not proved
an nnmitigited evil.
"For insbnee, Great Britain, Franca and
the Netherlands will undoubtedly be coo
ceded to respect the highest prosperity that
has been attained by any of the European
nations, ind yet no nation's have been
called upon to endure fiercer or mors pro
longed wrs, domestic and foreign, than
they. Th effect has been, unquestionably
to incur an enormous natiooal indebtedness;
bat neitbei their wars nor their indebtedness
ty, nor to check the progress of the generat
prosperity. Tha result would have been
different, probably, if these nations had
been falling into decay, instead of being,
as they really were, in a state of develop
ment, and in this respect their case resem
bles our own, with enormous advantages
in our favor. These nations, while under
going the trials of war, were oppressed by
the evils ol an immense exodus of their
people, caused by the denuity of their
population,, the impossibility to proviJe
occupation for them, the low ' price of
labor, and the scarcity of territory. Com -pared
with our own country, they possessed
slight room for .future development; they
were settled in every part, and no vast
territory lay invitingly open to encourage
enterprise and settlement. Their great
problem has ever been whal to do with
their surplus population, which, in its turn,
ha sought new fields for adventure and
well support in countries like our own,
where an illimitable territory waits to be
developed, and where incalculable resour
ces invite industry and energy.
The encouragement to be derived
from these facts and comparisons of cir
cumstances is very great, and to the mind
of any dispassionate reasoner is conclusive
that the couroe of this great country is
onward and upward, and that its credit will
live unimpaired to tho end.-'

o'clock on Thursday evening.
The number of cannon captured thus far
is reported at 52, including the celebrated

less than estimated, and will probably not
exceed five hundred. Nearly six thousand

FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC.
Dispersion of the Rebel Cavalry The Army
Moving on-Orange Court iloase.
Washington, Nov. 28. No intelligence
respecting the Army of the Potomac had
been received to day al the army head
quarters here up to two o'clock P. M.
Yesterday morning our cavalry pushed
forward as far as Locust Grove, 'here they
met the advance of the rebel cavalry. The
latter were driven across Russell creek or
river, aud afterwards across Mill run. A
body of rebel infantry were posted between
lhat point and Orange Court House, and the
whole rebel force moved off in lha direc
tion of tha latter place. .Locust Grove is
four miles south of Germania Ford, in
Orange county, and within a short distance
ot tha Wilderness, where Hooker fought
his battle. Mill run is two mites from
Locust Grove ; thence to Mountain river,
where General Earlyj with Ewell's old
corps, is said to be in force, is about six
miles. Orange Court House is eight or ten
miles further on, in a southwest direction.
U Battle Saturday Capture of Guerillas.
Washington, Nov. 29. A special dis
patch received here to-night from Rappa
hannock Station, says it is certain that no
battle has been fought. Cannonading was
heard on Saturday morning fainter than on
Friday, but during the day it was perfectly
Rain ceased falling before dark, and it is
probable that the quantity which has fallen
will not interfere with the movements of
the army except a lew hours.
Nine guerillas were captured on Friday
night, between Ca lett's Station and Fairfax
Court Houko. Four of them were in one
bouse. One of them had $3000 in green
backs. LATER FROM CHARLESTON
The Shelling of Charleston.
The Charleston Courier, of Nov. 22, says:
The enemy is evidently contemplating
an early assault upon Sumpter and for ihe
two or three nights he has been making
efforts to find out the strength of the garri
son. Oa Tuesday night, about halt-past
seven o'clock, the sentinel at the northeast
angla descried a small boat approaching the
fort. He hailed it several times, and was
answered with an oath. He thereupon fired
and the boat went off. Not long after there
was considerable musketry firing, apparent
ly from boats between tha fort and Gregg.
Several balls struck the fort and some
passed over. Toward daylight two boats
approached within four hundred yards of
the norheafcl angle. Being fired upon they
retreated toward Morris Island.
"On Thursday night a rather more daring
attempt was made for the purpose, prob
ably, of discovering whether lha fort was
defended by many munkets. About three
o'clock A. M , a number of the enemy's
barges variously estimated at from four to
nine approached within three hundred
yards ot the fort aad opened fire with
musketry. The garrison, which had been
previously placed in readiness for any em
ergency by the ever vigiUnt commander,
returned the fire, and the boats retired.
"It will be seen from our report lhat the
mortar firing ot the enemy has been much
heavier than from his rifled guns. On
Friday morning the mortar firing was par
"The only casualties that have occurred
are, 1'rivaie T. Wheeier, Company D. 1st
South Carolina artillery, wounded slightly
in the head, on Thursday, by a brick, and
one man killed oa Friday.
''Since our last issue, the enemy has
made four several attempts to shell ilia city.
From twenty to twenty-four shells were
thrown toward the town on Thursday morn
ing, the fire lasting from eleven and a half
to two o'clock. Two or three shells were
thrown al two o'clock on Thursday night,
about a dozen or more on Friday morning,
and eight or nine in the afternoon. It will
please tha Yankees to know that no one

The Secretary of the Treasury hat not
yet given notice of an' intention to wiih.
draw this popular Loan from Sale at Par
and until ten days notice is given, xh "
undersigned, as "General Subscription
Agent' will continue to supplj the public.
Ihe who's amount of the Loan author
ized is Five Hundred Millions of Dollars.
Nearly Four Huudrid Millions have been
already subscribed for and paid into the
Treasury, mostly within Ibe last seven
mon.h. The large demand from abroad
and the rapidly increasing home demand
lor use as the basis for circulation by Na
tional Banking Associations now organiz
ing in all parts of the country, will, in a
very short period absorb the balance
Sales have lately ranged from ten to fif
teen millions weekly, frequency exceed
ing three millions daily, and as it is well
known that the Secretaiy of the Treasury
has ample and uufailinz resources in the
Duties on Imports and Iterual Revenues
and in the icsue of the Interest bearinV
Legal Tender Treasury Notes it is almott
a certainty that he will not find it neces
saay, for a long lime to come, to seek a
market for any othar long or permanent
L ians, The Interest and Principal of which

Prudence and self interest most forre
the minds of thof-e contemplating the for
mation of National Banking Associations
as well as the minds of all who have idle
money on their hands, to the prompt con
clusion ihat they fcbould lose co time im
subscribing to this mott popular Loan.
It will soon be beyond their reach, and
advance to a hndeome premium, as was
the result with ihe ' Seven Thirty" Loan
whea it was all sold and could no longer
be subst-rided for at par.
IT IS A SIX PER CENT LOAN, THE
Interest and Principal payable in Coin,
thus yielding over Nine per cent, per an
nurn al the present rate of iremium oo
The Government requires all duties ol)
Imports to be paid in coin; thue duties
have for a long time past amounted to
over a Qiarter ot a Million of Dollar
daily, a sum nearly three times greater'
than that required in the payment of tha
interest on all the 5-20's and other perma
nent Loans. So that it is hoped lhat the
surplus Coin in the Treasury, at no dis'sni
day, will enabU the United States in re
sume specie payments upon all liabilities
The Loaa is catted 5 20 from the fact
that whilst the Bonds may run for twenty
years yet the Government has a right to
pay ihem off ia Guld at par, t any time
alter five years.
i he hnereM is paid half yearly, viz: oa
the first day ol November and Mav.
Subt-cribers can have Coupon Bonds,
winch arepaab!e to bearer, and aie $50,
S100, $500, aud 31000, or Registered bonds
of same denominations, and in addition,
$5,000 and StO.000. For Banking purpo
ses and for in veirnnls of Trust monies,
the Registered bond- are preferable.
These 5-20 ?s cannot be taxed by States,
cities, towns, or counties, and the Govern
ment lax on mem is only li percent., oa
the amonnt of income, when the income
of the holder exceeds Six hundred dollar
per annum; all other investments, curb as
income from Mortgages, Ra.lroad Stock
and Bonds, e c, must pay Irom three to
five percent, tax oa the i icome.
Banks and Bankers throughout the coun
try will continue to dispose of the bonds;
and ail order by mail, or otherwise, prom
ptly attended to.
The inconvenience of a tew days' delay
in the delivery of the Bunds is unavoida-
ble, the demand beins so great; but as in
terest commences from the day of sub
prnption, no fuss ia uccationed, and every
effort is being ruaJe to diminish the delay.
