abuse, and big dog, little dogs and dog
Forney keep up a continual yelping at Jiia
heels.( The extreme virulence with which
they asail him just now, arises from the
fact that in the -lately publiithed work o'
"Gen. Boiler, in New Orleans," by Firton,
General McClellan gets -credit for the plan
ning :of the expedition which resulted in
the capture of New Orleans. To General
M-CIellan the' country is indebted for that
brilliant movement, just as it is indebted to
him for the planning of the expedition, led
by Burnside, which captured Roanoke Is
land, All of General McCIellan'a military
plana were successful except when thwarted
by the Administration, who were jealous ol
his popularity. He is the only General who
has marched his army within sight of Rich
mond, and would have captured it had he
not been deprived -of the troops under Gen .
M Dowell at the instance of Lincoln and his
Cabinet. The ' Administration was the cause
cf the failure of that campaign, and this
failure caused more real joy to the Aboli
tionists than any event that bus happened
since the war began, for through this they
were enabled to divest him of his command
and confer it on the imbecile and lying
Pope. But scarcely had their exultation
died away, before, through the incapacity
of the latter, the Administration was com
pelled to call upon General McClellan, to
save their cowardly carcasses from the
hordes of the rebel Gen. Lee. He did save
them, the country and its capitol, through
thegloriou8 battle of Ahtietam, but this
ungrateful Administration no sooner reliev
ed of its fears, listened to the voice of fanati
cism and once more stripped McClellan of
the command of his brave and attached
soldiers The Abolitionists hate him be
cause he would be no pliant tool, of theirs.
Had he agreed to steal niggers, plunder
non-combatants, and leave a desert in the
track of his army, the Abolitionists would
have landed him to the skies, but he car
ried on his military operations according
to the laws of war, in accordance with the
resolution of Congress, and in a manner to
encourage the Union sentiment in the South
and for this he incurred their deadly hatred.
And what have the successive commanders
of theArmy c-f the Potomac accomplished
since his removal ? Absolutely nothing.
They have not even protected Pennsylvania
from invasion. Burnside, the butcher, and
Hooker the braggart, have both left enduring
monuments of their incapacity to lead the ar
my of the Potomac. Theoue on the bloody
hill side of Fredericksburg, the other on the
fata! field of Chanceltorville. Meade did bet
ter at Gettysburg, yet the army is no nearer
Richmond pow than the day Geo. M'Clellan
was deprived of his command. Yet the
Abolitionists who abused McClellan for his
dilaioriuess in marching to Richmond, have
not a word to say now when the Army of
the Potomac after two years of trial under
other commanders is going into winter
quarters on the banks of the Rappahannock
What inconsistency!. But who can expect

. The Hanover Citfaren saysi 'The Democ
racy have been defeated in the late elections
throBghout the State, it is true, but their
principles are yet the same. : They' have
not changed a single iota of their policy.
The Constitution is their guide. To it they
will cling, iu time to come, as the y hive
'done in times past, come what may. We
have no fears us to the final result of the
awful condition into which the party in
power have brought oar counlry. The De
mocracy of the country alone can restore
peace and procure prosperity. To that par
ty millions'of bereaved widows, orphans,
brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers -look
for re luge Irora the tempest of desolation
which now sweeps over the land. Let us
then, li ve up to our task. Let not a moment
go unimproved. Work by day and py night,
now and at all times, until our country is
again restored to its wanted prosperity and
happiness. This is the mission of the Dem
ocratic party, and this they will yet accom
plish;' ' . ' ;.
But there is another consideration which
should induce the Democracy to be vigilant
and active. Self-preserva'ion is said to be
first law of nature. When a person's life in
in peril,' he is justified before God and man
to de feud himself. Should the radical por.
lion of the parly in power assume complete
control of the Government ; or should they
feel confident of their strength and po wer,
the rights of ihe Democracy would soon be
swept from the country. The person of a
Democrat would not be a&fe for a moment.
' At a recent meeting in Western Missouri,
the notorious Gen. Jennison, held forth the
following language when speaking cf the
''We ask you to say to, the Copperheads
"Deaist." If they will not, put them to
death, if necessary. If not, I swear
I'll do it for you. We are rai-icg a regi
ment. Every loyal mau will be protested .
but every sneakiug Copperhead sympathi
zer shall be put to death. Great cheering.
I say to Copperheads and sympathizers, it
you don't repent I'll hang you so high that
your niggers can't reach your old clothes.
Decree ' immediate emancipation, and you
are safe. , .
When ray regiment marches into this, or
any other State, I'll say to every loyal man
"We'll protect you," and to Copperheads
"We'll kill you." I am here to ; counsel
you to remove every Conservative man, or
trouble comes. You'll be removed. 1 have
seven hundred men, and ia a few days will
be among you. We'll stand by Platte co.,
but you mast stand by freedom. We ask
you to clear out the Copperheads. It you
don't do it, I'll do it for you. I hope these
meetings will be often that we'll meet on
the soil of Missouri often and that fraternal
relations will soon be restored thronghout
the whole State ; but warn you mark the
conditions upon ' which Missouri will be
allowed to have peace this can never bei
until slavery is abolished in Missouri, and
Copperheads are converted or driven from
the Slate." " "
What the radical Jacobins in Missouri
and elsewhere mean by the term "Copper
head" was stated by Jennison in the same
speech. He said : "

ij The far Clergj.
f 'It is very common ftrjr ihe war clergy;, to
quote St. Paul in his epistfe to thefRomans:
"Let every soul be subject unto the higher
powers ; the powers that be are ordainedof
God : and they bt resist shall receive great
er damnation." From this text they argue
in favor of a blind obedience to the. powers
ibat be, and with their usual want of logical
accuracy, insist thst resistance to tbs meas
nrrfr,f Lincoln's Administration must be
ex veceisilatt sinful. ) Upon the subject of
civil obedience, that is obedience ao the
laws and the Constitution under which'and
through which the powers that be are ordain
ed, there can be no ; diversity of. opinio u.
This is a very-different thing' from unreas
oning, cowardly obedience to the 'will ol
the Administration, when that will tramples
upon and subverts the very Constitution by
which the supreme authority exists. If such
obedience was inculcated by the' Apostle,
then the precepts of Christianity are . only
so many aids and indigencies to arbitrary
power.' The Apostle simply -meant that
public expediency being the foundation, il
is also ihe measure of civil obedience ; or
as Paley in hi Moral Philosophy, discus
sing this very question, says : . "The 6bli
gation of subjects and sovereign is- recip
rocal ; that the duty oi allegiance,' whether
it is founded ia utility or compact, is neither
unlimited cor unconditional ; -that peace J
may be purchased 100- dearely ; that
patience becomes culpable pusillanimity
when it serves only to encourageour rulers
to increase (he weight of our burden, or to
bind it the faster ;ttat thesubmission which
surrenders the liberty ol a nation, 'and en
tails slavery upon future generations, 'is
enjoined by no law, human or divine. '?
Here is the essence of the whole matter
in a nutshell. The. Scriptures simply In
culcate a general duty, without defining
the extent of it. It is the method by wuifii
the same Apostle incolcates the doty of
servants to their masters,- of children to
their parents, of wives to their, husbands ;
and yet no one doubts that there might be
often occasions when all this authority,
being used for an unlawful and wicked
purpose, could be defied," without incurring
the crime of disobedience to God. So is it
with governments, or those who administer
them. The mere fact of ihe existence ot
a rebellion does not authorize the limited
agents of the people to transcend their
powers under ihe Constitution lo work op
pression and injustice in this country, any
more lhan in any other, and resistance to
such tyranny, so far from being in defiance
of God's will, is obedience to God.
The clergy in all ages have been marked
for their abject submission to despotism.
Whether it arises from their peculiar eys.
tern ot education, or from timidity aod the
want of that energy originating in their
habits of thought, we are not prepared to
say. One influence has been certainly pi.
erted to make them submissive, and that is
the opportunities the . war has .offered for
lucrative cbaplaincie,, with nothing to do
It has had more to do with their devotion to
the Government than any sense of duty
arising from' Scripture precept . to obedi
ence, for they "like to make to themelvps
friends of the mam mon of unrighteousness,"
we find, as well as their more carnal neigh
bors. Obedience 1 to the higher powers
with them is simply -obedience to thoe
carnal instincts that savor of "the world,
the flesh and ihe devil," more than they da
nf a celestial origin.
Coy. Cnrlin and His Rowdy Friends. -
Gov Cortin may be said to possess im
mense bowels of compassion for those who,
having faithfully served him, have taken
unwarrantable liberties with "law and or
der.'' He has not like Governor Kirkwood,
of Iowa, proclaimed a "previous pardon''
to all transgressors in behalf of Abolition
ism, but he seems to have acted as nearly
as possible up to the principle for, so far
he has pardoned every Abolition rowdy and
ruffian convicted of destroying Democraiic
printing offices, or assaulting individuals of
the party. The scoundrels who' demolish
ed the Huntingdon Monitor were pardoned;
so was the raffian who assaulted and knock
ed down a peaceable old man in the door
way of the Danville postoffice ; so were the
wretches who attacked an I maltreated an
attorney in Easton ;. and ; now we . have
another case of wholesale pardon in Lehigh
county.' At Ihe last court held 'there, only
a. week. or two since, ten loyal Abolitionists
were convicted of riot'and assaulting and
abusing a yoing Democrat in Allentown.
Four of the rioters were sentenced to pay a'
fine of SIO0 each, and costs, and Bix to pay
each, a fine of 350 and costs. In default of
payment seven of them were sent to jail.
In another ease, four loyal5 Abolitionists
were convicted of attacking and beating a
Democrat, and sentenced to'pay a lina of
$20 each, and costs. - . . f.Y
' Gov. Cortin, says the -Reading Democrat,
has shown bis regard for the impartial ad
ministration ot justice, by giving these loyal
convicts a pardon. .

So in the fre estates alone there are one
million and a half of Democrats at ihe close ol
1853. What a glorious figure! This is
100,000 more votes than Mr. Douglas got
in all the States Northern and Southern
in 1860. What Democrat can be discour
aged at such good progress under the terri
ble pressure ol the last three years? Only
think of it nearly 200,000 , Democrats in
New England, which we have been inclined
to give over entirely to the Abolitionists ;
nearly 380,000 in the Empire State, and
more than 300,000 in New' Jersey and
Pennsylvania; 200,000 in Ohio, and 250,
000 in Indiana and' Illinois. The other
Western Stales contribute nearly a quarter
of a million more, making up the grand to
tal in the free States to one million and a
half!" Surely this is a power in the land
not to be sneered at, impeached, or in any
way disregarded, whatever hot-headed par
tisans may say. It is a party that has work
ed persistently not as a party, but as pa
triots lo restore the country and it will
not be without a powerful and influential
voice in this matter.. The, auguries now
are that the practical restoration of the Un
ion may not be far off; aud this fact should
induce all good conservative men to renew
their energies and be frequent in their
counsels, to that we may not shipwreck as
we seem nearer the haven of safety the
old Constitution and the restored Union. '

LATE WAR news: r
Y -- ; : i
We have news from Charleston as late
as Wednesday last. On the 'previous Sab
day a moot distressing accident befel one
ol the iron-clad. The Weehawken was
at anchor off Morris Island, and foundered
during a heavy gale. She frank suddenly,
with many of her crew. A tew minutes
before two o'clock she raided a v signal of
dilrees, which was at once answered by
the flagship, and six boats were Kent to her
assistance. A couple of tteamtugs also
sailed towards tier - It was in vain however
for scarcely had they s arted on their mis
sion when the iron-clad displayed a new
signal, atid was found to be sinking She
ettled swiftly down by the head, .careened
slightly, and disappeared beneath , the
waves. Twenty of her crew sprang to the
boats as she sank ; -as many more were
rescued by the tugs and launches sent to
ber assistance ; but thirty were taken dowu
with her and drowned.
The siege of Charleston progresses slowly.
Firing on Sumter has ceased, and but very
lew shells have been thrown into the city.
Five buildings were struck, on Tuesday, but
no one was injured.. On Wednesday, a
heavy fire, from the Confederates drove
General Gillmoke's working parties out of
Gregg and Wagner.
A half dozen Federal gnuboals have been
sent after the Chesapeake, which was run
away with off Cape CoJ. One of them
sailed from this port. On Friday the Ches
apeake was ai Shelburne, a harbor on the
coast of Maine. She chipped some men
and coaled, and left at midnight. Her des
tination is not known, and some of her pnr
soars have given up the chae and returned.
She will probably endeavor to rur. the block

which is ten miles south of Tazewell and

eral army is at Tazewell, and the Clinch
river runs between the opposing forces.
Skirmishing is reported there, though , no
particulars are given, and there is no indi
cation of Longetreet'a future movements.
By advices from Fortress . Monroe, we
learn that the Confederates bave refused to
receive any further supplies for the Federal
prisoners in Richmond. They say, and
very justly, that the North has cast an un
merited imputation upon their honor, by
stating that their supplies were ntt distribu
ted as intended ; and, in order to avoid any
further trouble of the kind, tne authorities
at Richmond refuse to receive any more
supplies, and thus give no cause for the
