, There are ominous signs that the fatal
rrauh in our. financial affair, which all
know is inevitable, sooner or later, is not
far off. Wall Sireet is more than usually
fevonsh and ai Congress is in session, the
anxiety for Mr. Chase to open his plans for
the future, knows no bounds. Every thing
now obeys the nod and beck of the great
Shiuplaster King at Washington He makes
and unmakes rortnnes as he pleases Ha
sets up one and pulls down another. He
hat been holding forth inducements that
the war would be of short duration, bat,
year alter year, he i compelled to increase
his estimates nd contests that he has been
vturly mistaken. Even his owu friends
begin to tremble.
The correspondent of the Ciucinnati Go
teitt, writing from Washington, has the fol
lowing ominoas paragraph ;
When the deluded followers of Abolition
get so they can see "breakers ahead," we
shall have t.dvanced one step towards
petes. So long, as the heartless villains

Horace Greeluy was proving that the South

North, and that it would be a good thins to

Unit we must, bnakropt our people and ruin

ioi; cTraonev in an expedition to Texas,
wore the very ones who contended, with
all their raigbt, against allowing her to come
in the Union when she offered to do so
vriihont money and without price. And,
strange to say, Massachusetts, which was
the head and from of the opposition to (hat
measure, now furnishes the General and
most of the loldiers to compel Texas to do
that which, in 1847, she bo strenuously op
posed. Yea, and she actually parsed a
resolution to secede from the Union if I"ex
ai. was aonered, and only failed to do so
because the plack ol her Abolilieu bullies
was not equal to their bragging-. Since the
war broke out, however, she has made a
a gocd speculation by it. The withdrawal
1 the soatbern members enabled her to
piss a tariff tor the express benefit of New
England manufacturers, which she did at
once, withotitVaiiiag. Since then she has

Some cl the Features ofthe'TTar for the Union'.
The emphatic language in which the
Fathers ot the Republic deprecated the use
or rorce in the case of disobedient or refrac
tory Siaies has been completely lost on the
fcelf-styled Constiiutional men of these days.
i With a doggeri persistence that is proof
i . . . ...
ame againei reason and the tacts ot history,
they insist that the war shall go on until
the Federal authority is re established in
every State ol the Old Union. Well, their
policy has been tried . lor more than two
years and a half, and we believe even they,
or at least the candid portion of them, will
admit that we are worse off than when :he
trife began. We ask, then, if we have not
during this period, been guilty of acts to
ward the Sooth which wonld render any
other Union than that maintained by the
strong arm an impossibility? Have we not
6ought to carry oar point by sach means a
Knssia is now employing in Poland, or as
England has osed for centuries in Ireland?
Has the war differed ia any respect from
all other wars waged for- the consolidation
of empires? , Has ours not been characteri
zed by the same features bj towns and
dwellings given to the flames; by the deso
lation of extended -tract of country; by the
prostration of commerce; by scenes of plun
der and wanton destruction of private prop
erty ; by outrages on the weaker sex that
make the blood run cold to read or think of,
in a word, is not the record of this war for
the Union marked by just the same features
that are to be found in the history of all wars
waged for conquest and territorial domin
ion ?
Now, while these are facts which cannot
be controverted, is any man, be he a War
Democrat or Republican, so stolid as not
to see that a Union thus cemented can only
be held together by precisely the same
agency ? Military subjugation means noth
ing more nor less than military occupation
What the sword has acquired must be held
by the sword. The sequel is evident a
standing army of half a million, with an
outTay of at least two millions of dollars a
day, the overthrow of constitutional govern
ment, and the establishment of a centrali
zed military despotism, the oppression of
labor by excessive taxation, and the build
ing op of a privileged money class whose
very existence must depend upon the con
tinuance .of despotic power in the hands of
the Administration. Such will be the in
evitable result' of this monstrous fallacy call
ed the War for the Union.
Now, let us look at the character of the
men who direct and control the policy of
the powers that be. Have they not hereto
fore, in their party organization, sustained
principles and given oiterence to semi
menu utterly subversive of all law and or
der ? Have they oot shown themselves to
be disorganizes of the worst stamp? Have
they not eet cp their own opinion as above
and superior to the decisions of the supreme
tribunal of the country aud called it the
"higher law," fiom which they allow no
appeal? Have they not again and again
falsified their pledges to the people, and
under the plea of military necessity-, made
war apon every right made sacred to Amer
ican freemen by the bloody trials and sacri
fices of the Revolution ? Ail this they have
done, and yet a large portion of the people,
in complete abnegation of these facts, cling
with tenacity to a policy that the great
statesmen of the conntry have warned U3
again and again could only be productive of
one result the permanent es'ablishmant ot
a military despotism. '
We have never hesitated to express onr
convictions ia regard to the ends aimed at
by th8 party in power, and we now warn
the Democratic leaders that a longer per
sistence in their present support of the war
policy will lend to the complete extinction
of their party, and the absorption of all po
litical power in the hands ol the Adminis
tration. Do they not see that ev-ry Demo
catic voter who volunteers, or is drafted into
the army weakens oar strength, while it
increases that of our enemy and the enemy
of the country ? Have they not seen, in
the 'recent State elections, how this system
has been made to work how the Republi
can voters were sent home from the .army,
and the Democratic voters were retained,
unless they pledged themselves to vole un
der instructions, and the surveillance of
their military superiors ? The Democratic
Representatives in Coagress must insist oq
a full investigation and exposure of this out
rage upon citizen suffrage, and the party
acting in co-operation with them, through
their various organizations, must insist up
on a suspension of hostilities with a view
to reconstruction, or a settlement of the con
troversy on such ground as ruay lead' to a
reunion at some future time. One thing is
certain, ths.t the integrity of the Republic
can never be established by force. Mr.
Seward is oar authority for that ; and an
other matter is equally certain, that the pro
longation of this fratricidal conflict must
terminate in the destruction of the ouly
thing that rendered the Union valuable

Mr., -;.
Sir Three of the Subscri
bers fo your paper do not take there papers
out of this office, namely, Montgomery Cox
Urniah Chamberlin, and Calvin Halfpenny.
You would oblige very much by discon
tinuing them as they are "in the way"
Respectfully F. P. Masters
Sereno, Col Pa
To W. H. Jacoby
Bloomsburg Pa
It would appear that these papers have
not been taken out of the office, not '
continued, and of course as they are Demo
cratic papers, "they are in the way." One
ol iheae subscribers informed us that he did
not know the paper was sent, that he had
been at the office several - times, quite re
cently, and the Postmaster failed to hand
him the papers, or even inform him such a
paper was sent to his address, but allowed
them to lay in the office for a month or two,
and then sends them back to the editor,
stating in a very unofficial manner, "they
are not taken out of this office." Of coarse
they are not, after failing to perform his du
ty, as we are informed. The paper had
been discontinued on account of the draft
inviting the editor to Old Abe's Shoot
ing Match, and of course all our subscri
bers were not aware of our intention to
again publish and'send them the paper.-
These Abolition P. Ms. should be a little
cautions, and not do anything that might
look like taking the advantage of a Union
soldier, even if he does edit an orthodox
Democratic newspaper.
Congress went in session on Monday last.
As yet nothing has transpired of interest;
we are not even able to announce the elec
tion of a Speaker. The Abolition wng in
caucus nominated Colfax, of Indiana, lor
Speaker ; and the Democratic cauens ol the
House after some consultation adjourned
without making a nomination. The Mes
sage if delivered in time will appear in dur
next issue. .It will be short.
The yftung lady (?) who so civilly (?)
yelled ' Copperhead" after ns opon the
street, the other evening, will j)lease ac

female chimpanzee! May she live to grow
a lofty as Cleopatra's Needle ; may f he
become as great in cirenmference as Strom

as Stheno ; may she grow so old that Time
can plough furrows apon her brow deep
and wide and long enough to serve as rifle
pits lor the Dirse, from which they can hurl
forth their snakes and lighted torches ;
may Lbreas fan her braw with ai icy hur
ricane ; may Jeapiter comb her hai:- with
forked lightning and bathe her tcmnles
.fcwith a water-spout : may every Abolitionist
in the land sue for her hand until they dis
cover her Gorgon features, then let them
fly hence in terror ; may she at last marry a
little old, lean, blind, deaf, domb, lame,
hunchtack mule-beef contractor! These
are al! the best wishes for he' welfare that
we can think of just now. We may think
of some more by the next time she dares
to hiss "Copperhead" at us upon the street.
We shall try and discover her name also,
and we shall give her the benefit CT a full,

Sad Accident. On yesterday afternoon
Daniel M. Gearhart of Rush twp.. Northum
berland co. while in the stable of the Dan
ville Hotel, acridenlly fell and in his fall
stumbled against one of the horses in the
stalls. The horse kicked him in the head,
striking him above the temple, producing
concussion or compression of the brain.
At the time of going to press, be remained
in an insensible state, and great fears were
entertained that his injuries might prove
fatal. Danville lntellizenctr.
Is it true that Lincoln is going, in his
forthcoming messace, 'to recommend that
the name of the White llnuit be changed to
that of 3lack House, and that Congress ap
propriate a snm to alter the color of that
mansion ? If the Republican Congressmen
would vote to do this, and also vote that no
man should sit in his seat in the Hall of
Congress without ablacker.ed face, after the
manner of the negro minstrels, there would
be a fitness of things, and a propriety in
their acts which has not been displayed
since they seized the government.
Choice or Parents. In all case where
exemption from draft is asked, on the
ground that "two or more sons are liable to
military doty," the choice must be made
before Dec. 20th, and not postpond until the
draft has been made. Last draft, owing to
the law being new and imperfectly under
stood, parents were allowed to exempt one
where two were drafted. This cannot be
allowed in the January draft, and those in
terested cannot blame as if, through their
own neglect, tbeir claims for exemption
opon this ground are made too late to have
any effect.
Ikfaxticide. Last week a case of infan
ticide occurred in our borough. The moth
er of an illegitimate child, impelled by
shame or more devilish motive threw her
new born babe into a sink for the purpose
of hiding all traces of her guilt, bm.ihe in
fant by its cries caused a search to be made,
when it was rescued. It lived a mo
ment or two alter. A jury was enpannelled
by Esquire Brandon, who gave a verdict in
accordance with the facti presented Dan
villi Inltliigencer
.From Chattanooga semi-official accounts
ol General Hooker's repulse at Ringgold
represent his loss at Eve hundred. The
Federal army is row intrencbiag on the
eastern slope of Mission Ridge, their p'ck
ets being posted two miles in advance along
the western bank of the Chickamauga.
The Federal retreat from Ringgold, peven
miles to the Chickamauga, was quite pre
cipitate, and closely followed up, by the
enemy, who now picket the eastern bauk
of the stream. General Bragg'g beadquar
ters are at Ringgold, and his army is massed
in that neighborhood. General Grant ha9
not yet sent any report of the result of his
battle to Washington, bnt the number of
prisoners captured is said to be six thou
sand four hundred and fifty, and the number
of guns forty-six. The Federal loss in
kilted and wounded is staled at forty-five
hundred. Everything is quiet at Chatta
nooga. . v . .
From Knoxville we receive nothing de
finite. General Longstreet does not appear
yet to have raised the siege ; for if he had,
we certainly should have intelligence of it
from General Burnside. There is no com
munication between Cumberland Gap and
Knoxville yet. General Foster is idle on
the Clinch river, twenty miles from the gap
where he has but a handful of cavalry.
He makes no attempt to advance any
farther. A Federal force of three thousand
is said to have left Chattanooga to aid Burn
side, though the rorte taken is not very evi
dent. The Confederates are represented to
be in strong force at London, twenty three
miles west of Knoxville, and at Kingston,
ten miles northwest of Loudon. Cannona-,
ding has been heard in that direction ; so
that it would seem the expedition had
marched over the Cumberland Mountains,
and was in conflict with the enemy; no pro
gress appears to have been made by the
expedition beyond Loudon, the Confeder
ates having there a strong line of defence,
formed by the Tennessee river. We can
find no reliable intelligence of Longstreet's
retreat. The numerous rumors to that
effect are evidently manufactured at Cincin
nati. General Meade's army is at Brandy Sta
tion, with an outpost of cavalry at Culpeper.
On Friday afternoon a light division of the
enemy crossed the Rapidan at a point above
Raccoon Ford. General Maade will not be
able to drive them across, his line not being
advanced sufficiently to do it, ecd the Con
federate left being already pasted on the
north bank of the Rapidan. This crossing
of the eoemy indicates nothing beyoud an
adjustment of their position, however.
There is no certainty yet as to Meade's
successor, thongh it appears to be decided
that he shall be re-noved.
There is intelligence from north Carolina
that on November 25th, aa expedition made
from Newbern, in search of guerrillas, re
suited in ihe capture of seventy-foar men
who were brought into the town. Thirteen
large steamers successfully ran the block
ade at Wilmington in one night the 19ih
of November.
From Charleston there is news by a
Southern medium as late as Thursday last
The bombardment continued languidly and
with no effect. A few shells had been
thrown into the city. At night calcium
lights on the Ironsides, (which is surround
ed by rafts,) and in battery Gregg, are em
ployed to illuminate the harbor and dis
cover the enemy's woiking parties. The
siege has been in progress one hundred
and fify days.
Soa'hem accounts from Texas state that
General Banks' force at Brownsville is five
thousand s'rong, and that he had made no
capture of cotton.
A Confederate raid has been made from
Arkansas into the heart of the Cherokee
nation. The Federal General B!unt, whose
business it is to protect the Indian Territory
has lately been moving in 6uch an Incom
prehensible minner that even the enemy
cannot find him.
.The "loyal leagues" have become secret
organizations, and in Connecticut notices
were given to the initated by half a sheet
ol fool's cap, with a hole, in the shfpe of a
coffin, cot in the middle of the paper, which
is stuck up for a poster. The coffin is good.
