FOR PRESIDENT IN 1864,
GEORGE B. M'CLELLAN,
Subject to the Decision of the Democratic
Tfca Cost of Ciril War.
-The Secretary of the Treasury baa an
nounced that for the folnre be roust resort
10 loans to iirry on , the wr. Let us see

To support the army and to carry en the
Government it is computed that two mil-

four hours. Mr. Chase goes tojiis "nation,

He has issued Government bonds for one
hundred million dollars payable at the end
of twenty years, at sir per cent, per an
num. a.i tne end of twenty years the
Government, if it promptly pays its interest,
will have paid lo the pet banks of Mr. Chase
one hundred and twenty million do!Iar,and
will then have to pay the one hundred
millions the bond calls for. Thus, on the
loan of on 0 hundred mitlinrva f
the Government only received paper worth
at the mantel rate, eixly-two millions, the
jreasory wm oe torced to paj two hundred
and twenty millions, and this for the pleas
ore of carrying on the war but for the space

Socb will bathe effect of carrying on tbe
war with loans. Every seventeen ..years
tbe interest is greater than the principal;
nd when the loan, as is the case now,
must be received in paper promises depre
ciated to more than one third, the loss is
such that no country on earth could stand it
withoul bankruptcy. ' '
If Mr. Chase intends to carry on the war
by taxation, the ruin will be changed from
the Government to the ceonla. Pronertv
cannot stand such taxation as the wants of
the Treasure reacire and if thia nin
put into successful operation, within one
year the poorest men in the country will
be those who own most property ; the rich,
est these who own none whatever, for al
though tbey are irable to conscription, yet
. 1 k i '
t t w " w
mey are not name la taxation, for they
bave nothing to tax.
i la either event, bow the war is to be con
ducted anoihsr 3 ear, with such lavish ex
penditnres, i? a problem that we cannot
aolve, wiihcnt entailing ruia on the people,
or bankrap cy to the country. The debt
will, by that time, be so great that repudia
tion and consequent disgrace most be the
iHoriiiDis . consequence. Yet there are
inope among ca whose interest is to contin
ue the present work ofdesolalion and death,
who cry out for a still more vigorous prose
cution of tbe war, thus hastening the time
when the Republic and its citizens will be
' buried in the same financial ruin.
Within less thaa three years, from being
-mo most prosperous people that ever graced
the earth tbe freest from national taxation

.our free speech and our entrant msled press
we have sunk so low in onr national char
acter that there is none so poor as to do ns
reverence. Free speech has been denoun
ced as a crime, and even free 1 bong ht the
President of the United States has pro
claimed to be akin to treason.; A free press
no longer dare exist where the Adminis
tration, has bayonets or mobs to pat it
dawn: and to those are now added mier
.ruin financially as we have inter ruin po
litically ; and still the vampyres who have
ancked the lite blood out of . the nation,
who hava swindled rhe Government and
robbed the soldier, have trampled the Con
titntioa under foot and severed the Union,
cenoucce an as traitors, copperheads, etc.,
who wib for Peace, in the hepe that it
nay possibly ears the coaatry and save
She people. '
The Kebelliori is not over yet, although
f'z'v davi and seventy davs bave Dassed. rea
twe years and better bave passed ; and we
can see no nearer the end of the war than
could be seen two years ago. Tbe point of
starving oat the rebels has been lost sight
cf for seme lime ; and the matter of tbeir
not possessing courage sufficient to stand a
fiht ba3 long siace sunk into .significance
asd ceeds no better eviJence than the many
hard . fought battle fields.. Old Abb must
actually think he yet needs ft00,CCO more
men o cru3h this rebellion or be would not

- We notice that a few Congressmen pre
tending to act for the Democratic party,
held a caucus in Washington the other day
at which they determined to is-ue an ad
dress to the Democracy of the North, favor
ing a "vigorous prosecution of the war,"
and advising as a matter of exptdiency the
adoption of a 'strong war platlorm, in the?'
coming campaign. Now if these would be
leaders of oor good old party would attend
10 the business for which ihey were elected
acd try to represent aricht those who hon
ored them with their suffrage, in place of
dictating plailorms, or at empting to force
the Democracy into a fale position, lor ex
pediency's sake, tney would receive the
thanks of tbeir conmitiiems and be rer.ler
ding some service to their party as well as
to the country. It is about lime, we think,
that this crj of expediency were stopped.
It has got thousands of Democrats beguiled
into this Abolition war that never would
have had aught to do with it, but for'ibi
contemptible cowardly plea, of men who
were trusted and treated as leaders ol our i ed by a majority of one hundred and ieven
pany. It has done more to furnihh men j teen, bein an increase of Hxty-eighl since
and money, and keep up the power of the ( last 'October. A despatch: "The Hnion

Cougrehsiwial caucuses can talk ''poli-
until they grow tired and advige 'war -
platforms," as "strong" as they have a
mind 10, bet the only "policy our party can
adopt is the strict adherance to piinciple,
and the only 'platform," thai laid down by
Jefferson and Madison, .over Sixty years
ago, in the Kentucky and Virginia Renom
lions. It is oar platform of principle. In
it is embodied, and expressed, the great
doctrines that made 001 conn'ry what it
was before the people in their blindness
and bigotry gave the reins of government
into the hand of ihe puritan fanatic of
New England. Upon it alone can we sue
Upoo it alone should we make the ! -
fight. If tiie principles of our party, as ex
pressed by its founder are right , it is wrong
to attempt an evasion of them even though
policy woold dictate for the hope of tem
porary success. They should be made the
shiboleth of Democracy, and, the man Mhai
fears lo endorse them, is not fit to be our
candidate, and he who fails to npjiold them
in this the "hour of our, adversity" shoulj
not be reckoned as one of us. -Democratic
Discraceftjl On Monday night last, a
disgraceful fight occurred in the Bar-room
of Nicely's Hotel, between a returned
volunteer soldier, and a rampant "Stay at
-home loyalist," of this place. As the
soldier was still suffering from a serious in
disposition, he was no match for the "Lin
colnite," who abused, and maltreated him
most unmercifully, opening a frightful gash
on his left cheek, and blackening his eye.
And yet, forsooth, he is tbe "soldiers
friend !" Shame ! Shame ! Berwick Ga
Another Arrest We learn that Johi
Paul, a -quiet citizen of Jeansville. this

not in harmony with the new fahioned

Daniel Webster, once in a eulogy 00
Alexander Hamilton, happened to strike a
water-glass by his side, shivering it to
atoms, and slightely cutting his hand, from
the blood which flowed freelv. Lilting it
up so that all mitjt note tbe inspiration of
the sentiment, he exclaimed of Hamilton :
He smote the rock of our renources, and
abundant streams gushed lorth ; he touch
ed the corpse of the public credit, and u
stood upon its feet." .
If a man were speaking of Chase, who
claims to wear the mantle of Hamilton, be
would probably say :
"He mote the handle of Hos's printing
press, and abundant streams of greenbacks
gushed forth ; with the wand of his green- I
backs he touched the national conscience,
and it became shoddy."

which the enrollment was made in that

one of the subdistricls, tbe post master,
and a number of relatives and political
friends were allowed lo escape the draft.
It appears that tbe lit of entolled persons
did r.ot contain the names of the parties al
luded to. and in ordar to prevent the defec
tion of the fraud which certainly would have
been and was discovered by the neighbors
of the omitted'parties, an extra list was
printed by a "loyal'' editor of a "loyal''
newspaper in Wyoming county in which
were printed the names omitted in the
genuine list, and the bogus list potted in

is doing some little pettifogging, but of
course nothing of importance.

was never more true. than in the sudden
and unexpected removal of the lovely child
who has been taken from the evil 10 come.
Her sufferings were of short duration, and
though all was done that could be. for the
restoration ol her health, it was erident that
the Saviour who look little children in his

little children to come unto me and forbid

A FORTUNE FOi: AlAA
EITHER 3IEX OR WOMEN' !
NO HUMBUG, but an ENTIRELY NEW
thing. Only three months in this country.
No clap trap operation to gull the pub'.'c,
but a genuine money making thing! Read
the Circular of instruction once only, and
you will understand it perfectly. A Lady
has jm writien to me that she is making
as high as TWENTY DOLLARS SOME
DAYS! giving instructions i:i this art.
Thonsands ot Soldiers are 'making money
rapidly at it. It is a thing that takes t e-.ier
ilian auythina ever cilered. You can
make money with it home or abroad on
steam boats or railroad car, and in the
country or city. You will be pleased in
pursuing it, not only because i: will ; ield
a hand-ome income, but also in conse
btience cl the general admiiation which it
elicits. It is pretty much all prjfii. A
mere trifle m necessary to start with.
There is scarcely one person cat of
thousands who ever pays any attention 10
advertisements of tins kind, thinkins ihey
are humDjg. Consequently those who 03
send or in-truciions will have a bioad
field 10 make money ;n. There is a rl-s
ot persons in this world who would ihink
that beeause ihey bave been bumbuaeJ
out of a dollar or so, that everything lhat
is aderused is a humbug. Consequently
i' e ir) no more. The person who enc
ceeds i ihe one that keeps on trying until
he hiis kornethiiig that pays him.
This art cost me on thousand dollars
and l.expect to make money out of it and
t il who purchase the art of me will do the
same. One Dollar sent io wie will insure
the prompt return of a card of ins'rut-tion
