. FOR PRESIDENT IN 1864,
GEORGE B. M'CLELLAN,
Subject lo the Decision of the Democratic
W tat'i to be Dose ?
The accounts that reac cs from the J
Sootb, although they vary as to the details
of the plan of operations for the coming
spring, all agree that the most formidable
preparations are being made for the most
desperate campaign of the war. The re
cent statements of tha Radical press, that
tun wuuic(cf v j ti 05 uutuiicu liauucu
to submission, were the vcj antipodes of
troth. The Administration have provided
abundant food to strengthen the spirit of
rebellion. If Mr. Lincoln bad made a gift
to Jeffersoo Davis of millions from the ex
chequer, to be a bed as bounty money for
Soathem recruits, be would not have done
better service to their cause than he has
done by bis insulting Amnesty propositions,
and his absurd attempt to create State Gov
ernments by dictatorial power. He has
eaid to the Southern people: MYorj shall
net retarn to the Union except under such
local Governments as I dictate ;" and the
subservient Abolition Congress, that do his
bidding, have added : "In the event of your
submission, your estates shall be confisca
ted ; your property, personal and real es
tate, shall be taken from yon; your chil
dren shall be disinherited, and left home-
lass and penniless to urve, under the scorn
and ba red of Northern fanatics ; joor lands 1
and manor nouses scan ce parceie-a oai
among ocr retainers ; the negro and the
adventurer shall sit and rule at your hearth
stones; and yon beggars, pariahs and out
casts shall be forbidden representation in
our national legislatures, and be shut out
forever from offices of trasl and honor."
We ask the intelligent, honest citizen, if
snch is not the substance of what Mr. Lin
coln ad this Conqress have said, are say
ing, to the South ? And with that prospect
before them as the seqnel of submission
outlawry, disfranctuemeat, social and po
li;ical degradation, penary for themselves
end their issue, decreed as their portion
should they throw down their arms who
shall bellave that the free, proud American
blood thai swells their veit; will not be
spilled to the last drop in resistance ?
The inaogaration of this Administration
plunged the land in civil strife ; three years
of their role have scfHced to render it irre
mediably a war of extermination or cf con
firmed separation, unless the people have
courage and firmness enough 10 create, at
the next Presidential election, such a thor
ough revolution in our political condition
as will enstye the termination of the war
opon equitable principles. We are on the
erge of a campaign that threatens to be
more bloody and desperate than any that
have gone before and those that have
gone before have hurried hundreds of thou
sands to prematura . graves have draped
the Und in roonrning, and have brought as
to the threshold of financial rein. Conscrip
tion now expands its inexorable net so a3
toimmesb almost a'l the manhood and
vigor of the land. The virile strength of
the States being ihns impressed into the
Federal service, the State sovereignties will
te powerless to oppose the aggressions of
central authority and the military power
will rule supreme.; Then, ihrooghoot all
the North, the elective franchise. a3 in Del
aware, ad Maryland, and o'.berStaes will
be controlled by FeJeral b3onets. andpros
titated to the cses of despotism. The State
jadiciary, the State legislatures, the State
executives, most either with sabservience
cr perforce bend before the central scepter
The same power that dictates civil govern
ment according to its caprice to Louisiana
and Arkansas will enforce new laws and a
new Constitution upon any- Slate, and
neither justice nor popular opinion will
Lave an equal power to say it nay. The
South in arms can resist the North disar

Although the "rebellion" ia enrpressed

Have War Democrats, who profess to sup
port the Administration in prosecuting this
war solely fn-m their love for the Union and
"the old flag;" who profess to be decidedly
opposed to the Administration policy of
confiscation, emancipation, subjugation and
distribution ; have the War Democrats, we
ask, ever reflected opon the certain eflect
on the Southern mind of this extreme poli
cy of the Administration which they, in
cot junction with the Administration party
proper, are striving to carry out ? Candidly,
must not this policy make the who'e South
ern people would it not make the Demo
crats themselves,- supposing themselves in
the place of Southerners resolved tn ac
cept any alternative short of actual exter
mination. rather than submit to the North 1
What worse could happen to ibem than
woold follow submission o the North, and
military enforcement of the actual, avowed
policy of the Administration ? Have the
War Democrats reflected that there are al
ternatives within the reach of the Confeder
acy far short of extermination ; but which
woold effectually, and most disastrously for
the North, place the South beyond our
reach, and make reunion forever hopeless i
Are we asked what these alternatives are ?
We answer: The protectorate ol England;
or the protectorate of France : or the joint
protectorate of these two Powers. There
is another the return to colonial depend
ence as a province of the, British Empire.
Is not Canada in much better position than
would be the South under Black Republi
can role, alter conquest ? There is yet ano
therthe surrender of independence, and
much of liberty too to Napoleon III, by
becoming an integral but roost important
and valuable portion of the French Empire
Should the South prove incapable of
maintaining its independence against the
United States, and find itself on the point
of succumbing (a resuir which we do not
at all anticipate as probable either of the
above alternatives wou'd, we donbt not, be
resorted to with great unanimity by the
South, rather than submit to the role cf the
detested Butlers who would be sent as mil
itary satraps into the provinces to provoke,
insult and oppress the people. Does there
remain one among the War Democrats, or
even among the adherents proper to the
Administration, of such overweening confi
dence in the power bf the United States as
to suppose, after what has recently occur
red in St. Domingo and Mexico, that ei:her
France or England wool ! be deterred by
fear of what would remain of the United
Slates from accepting such propositions on
the part of the Confederacy ? Pleasant de
lusion ! Give up, then, War Democrats,
your hope of uniting the Union under "the
old flag" by force of arms. It is in peace J
in peace accorded, not conquered, that
rests the only hope of ever asjain seeing
this conn rr cne, prosperous, and powerful.
Oh, that we could imbue all minds with
this conviction as thoroughly as we possess
it ourselves !

Death of Hon. James C. Clay.
A telegram from Montreal announces the
death ol Hon. James B. Clay, ex-minister
to Portugal and ex-member of Congress
from the Ashland district, Kentucky.
Mr. Clay was the son bf Hon. Henry Clay,
was born in lft 17, and inheritedhis father's !
estate, on which he lived, with his mother,
until the breaking oat of the rebellion. He
then took an active part with the Sooth,
but, before he could carry out h"n vitjws,
was arre:edat Cincinnati, in company with
sixteen of his confederates, on the 25ih of
September, 1661, and was confined at Camp
Dick Robinson, Kentucky. He was subse
quently committed lor trial at Louisville,
Kentucky, and on the 30th ot September
was admitted to bail in the sum of ten thou
sand dollars to appear at the next January
term of the United States Court.
lie forfeited his bonds and left the coun
try, dying, in self-imposed exile in Canada.
How little did Henry Clay immagine
that his own son would die an outcast and
an alien to the country that gave him birth.
If Henry Clay lived to day he would, in
the estimation of these latter day patriots,
be one of the most viilanious traitors and
copperheads that ever walked upon Ameri
can soil. To love oar country and its in
stitutions was once a great viriila, but now
it is a great crime. How sadly have the
times changed 1

LATE WAR NEWS.
There is no change reported in the state
of affairs at Knoxville. General Foster
keeps very close quarters in the town.
There is a confirmation of the fight at Tase
well, the outmost, of Cumberland Gap,
which represents thai '.he Federal garrison
was driven back to the Gap und now does
not venture out ot it, the confederate cavalry
General Jones, every moment threatening
mi attack. The enemy holds possession,
as we reported no me days ago, of all the
country between Knoxville and Cumberland
Gap, and is likely to hold it- .
From North Caroliua there is nothing
new. Federal authorities are very reticent
about the losses there and they appear to
have been very great. Newbern had but a
small garrifon and half at least of the troops
were killed or captmed. The gunboat
Underwriter is blown up, every camp de
stroyed and two cannon captured. The
railroad lo Moorehead city is a wreck. This
movement has indefinitely post pond 'the
Federal attack upon Wilmington.
The Army of the Potomac still lies quiet
in the mud, and nothing iurlher is said of a
change of generals, cannonading has been
heard from Washington, but its cause is
not known. The guerrillas cannot be found
by any reconnoitering party. A train bound
for the army pitched into the Potomac on
Saturday, killing one man and wounding
From Boston there is news of a contemp
lated raid by some Federal troop in Flori
da, but nothing dctfiniie is krio.vn of it.
The entire country between Memphis
and Corinth has been abandoned, the Fed-
eral troops retiring to Memphis.
is heard of the expedition lrorn Vickaburg
At Chattanooga it has suddenly been dis
covered that the enemy has not abandoned
Dal'on, but still hold their former positions
in front of the place. So the Federal army
has not ma le any advance into that portion
of the 4 heart of the rebellion."
The capture of General Sc.immon by the
Confederates, in Sooth western Virginia, is
confirmed. Forty officers and soldiers were
also taken, all but three of whom were par
oled. There were but thiny five of the
enemy in all, only thirAeen of whom en

The subject of this memoir, like those of
others, at the call of the Government volun
leered his services to his country. He en
listed August 23d, 1862, in Capt Osbahs's
Co , 149ih RegtM P. V.; he was a true patri
ot and brave soldier, and endured the fa
tigues and privations incident to the life of
a soldier in a manner scarcely excelled.
Whi!e engaged in the deadly conflict at
Gettysburg, he was severely wounded by
some swift-flying missile of a fiendish ene
my; he was allerward removed to Phila
delphia for medical treatment. After the
elapse of three or four months was partially
restored to health, and returned once more
to his regiment, where he remained an ac
tive, obedient and useful soldier until with
iu a few days of his death, which was caus
ed by accidentally steping on a nail which
passed through his boot, penetrated and
nearly passed through his loot. It soon be
came very painful and caused the Tttonus
which soon ended the career of his useful
ness. His remains were interred in Virgin.
ia, bot afterward exhumed and. brought to
Luzerne Co., Pa., and buried in Fairmount,
January the lO'.h, 1864. The occasion was
improved by the Rev. J. M. Goss, from
Psalms 23d and 4th. Milton, though young
in years possessed many sterling qua!itiest
and has left many friends to mourn his loss.
Not only the hopes of doting parents have
been paralized and the fond expecMtorts
of affectionate brothers and sisters sudden
ly blasted but a large community of young
people deeply feel their bereavement. His
friends were as extensive as bis acquain
tance He was generally lored by the young
j and respected by the old. He bad always
friendly gitoting for tit, and w& ia
agreeable companion for old or young, thus
his death casts a gloomy shadow over our
entire community, to see oar young friend
cut down in the bloom of youth and in the
prime cf enlth. But such are' the decrees
of natnre and we most be submissive, for
all things are fleeting and pass away each
in th"ir turn. Orderly D L. Creveling, in
writing home to the father ol the deceased,
remarks: "Do not think that in your be
reavement you are the onlj ones that de
plore his loss, for in the company he was
loved and admired! He was always ready
to do duty, and ever as ready tc lend a help
ing haud when called upon no matter how
arduous the task, 1 and for him we mourn."
In the cleat h of young Lockard the society
has lost a valuable member, the Govern
ment a devoted Iriend, the nation a true pa
triot, the family one of its sun-shine treas
ures! One link of affection in that circle
is broken, one flower is dead, one leaf has
left their tree, one chord ic the music gone,
one chair is left vacant, one heaven-sent
blessing gone back to vast eternity. Oh,
could tears 'or prayers have bound him
here he had not passed away; could love
have bound him to earth he had been their's
to-day ; but tears and prayers and love
were vain the messenger to htay.
And he has passed the shadowy portal;
He ha borne the mortal strife;
He has left this world of sorrow
For a world of heavenly life.
And our heaMs are grieving for thee,
Grieving with intensest pain,
Grieving that we shall not ee thee
Oar soldier boy, here again.
Blinding tears are 'nesth our eyelids:
Every lash contains a tear;
And our hearts are wet wr.h weeping
Weeping for thee, Milton daar!
Still on .hU darkness of our grief
There shines & disanl star,
And heaven's own lustre make'h bright,
Showing it shines afar
Onr travo patriotic soldier hoy
Has gone where reigns ecstatic joy.
