' Barelt Possible. The "National Intelli

Fee John frequently drags our paper into
notice us one of the "eympatising'' "rags"
ot, this place. He lies when .he, speaks of
our paper us sympathising with the rebels or
jheircar.se. He mast be either . a knave or
a fool, and - we , are inclined to think the
former suits his case the best; for it bas
been said thai it took a smart man to be a
fool. As for the Democrat, it is able to take
care of .itself, having an old veteran and a
soldier for its editor. There is one thing
certain, the editor of this paper, as well as
the editor of the Demotrat, has borne arms
in the defence of his country, which Pee
John has not done nor never will. We
entered the army in the defence of the Con
stiiation as it is, and the Union as it was,
and not for the abolition of the negro, and
this, Pee John dare not do. He is as mnch
like Artkmas WattDas can be, in respect to
entering the army ; that is, he is willing to
sacrifice all his broiher3,cousins, and wife's
relations, to go into the service and "krush
this ere-onholy rebellyun," so long as he is
not obliged to do any of the fighting him
self. He wot Id not even put his name
down on Capt. Clark's muster roll and en
ter the service for State defence, as both of
the Democratic editors of this place did,
when the rebel General Lee first invaded
Pennsylvania's soil. No. He was not the
man to defend his own Slate. But after the
rebels had been compelled to leave Penn
sylvania, (though noL-tbrough fear ot such
Generals as John,) driven out of Maryland,
and their army nearly annihilated at Sharps
burg and Aniietam, then and not till then,
did he pretend to show his patriotism, by
marshaling a squad of men together, and
accompanying them to Harrisburg, only to
trouble Akdrew Curtin to inform them that
Le did not need their services !
A Challenge Between Rival Safes. It
is rumored that the son and agent of Mr.
Lilhe, the 6afe man, has offered the agent
of S. C. Herring to put 81000 iu the safe
recently purchased of Mr. Herring by the
Second National Bank of Wilkes Earre,
and a I ke some in a Lillie chilled sale be
longing to Messrs. Brown & Wilson, at
the First National Bank the Lillie agent to
have fair play at the Herring, and the Her
ring agent to have fair play at the Lillie,
the .one first reaching the money to have
both sums, or $2009.
Quite a lively time may be expected
when the Herring bones and Lillie leaves
begin to rattle and Sutler in the full tide ot
successful or unsuccessful experiment. '
Record of the limes.
Change or Track. The Luzerne Union
says the-third rail on the Lackawanna and
Bloomsburg railroad will be laid over the
entire length of the roaa in a week or two,
so that cars loaded either at Northumber
land or Scrauton can traverse the whole
distance without transhipment. A train
can then be loaded al any point on the road,
and go direct to Philadelphia. The great
increase of business and the demand of the
coal trade rendered this change neces
sary. If we may be permitted to judge by the
returns of the late elections in Ohio and
Pennsylvania, the best way to increase the
population of a country is to go to war and
have men killed off; some townships, dis
tricts and Counties, cast more votes al the
late elections for the Republican candidates
than their whole male population, as ex
hibited by the last census. The system of
colonization, stuffing, etc., ws over done
at the late elections, and the Republicans
themselves stand appalled at the enormity
of the swiud.e !
Hard on Seward Wendell Phillips, in
a Lecture delivered at Boston, a few days
