United Slates Soldiers la Colombia Conntv.
Abontsiz o'clock, p m., on Sain rd ay last,
a transportation train of thirteen ears arrived
at this place, from Harrisburg, loaded with
soldiers, numbering in the neighborhood of
one hundred, cavalry and artillery. There
are two pieces of artillery, ten pounders
tcom all appearances, and the balance are
cavalry. They reported to Provost Marshal
Silver and were marched to the Fair Ground
below to wd and encamped. The soldiers
look well, conduct themselves gentlemanly,
so far as we have noticed, and are one
hundred day's men. What is proposed for
them to do in this county we, of course, are
not informed. Their object may be to in
timidate Democrats, arrest drafted meo, or
to make the Abolitionists ol this county. feel
- more secure in their livea and properly.
For the Abolitionists in this county are
looking and feeling so guilty, knowing this
war to be baptized into a negro war, that
ibey may have brought these soldiers here
for their own protection. The Abolitionists
here know that they have repeatedly abus-
"ed and slandered prominent Democrats for
opiniou'a sake, and that they cannot con
tinue oa in that kind of way much longer,
hence they may have felt it necessary to
bring some soldiers about them. But this
is all useless. Tbe Democrats in this coun
ty are a civil, law abiding set of people, and
do not mean, nor trill not, harm acy man so
long as their rights and privileges are not
interfered with in any unlawful manner.
If it is the business of these soldiers to hunt
up drafted men and bring them to service,
" wo think the" experiment will not par ex
penses. There are too many chances for
those drafted meo to make their escape.
Those who have not reported do uet mean
.to go or be taken by a Provost guard man
acted and dragged into tbe service against
their will is something they do not intend
to allow, if we do not mistake the sentiment
of the non-reportanls. in this county. This
county is not alone, in being backward
about reporting. Look at Luzerne, Carbou,
Schuylkill, and others, if yon please, and
you will find ihey are all back more or less.
We do not wish our Abolition friends to
infer from what is here said that, we are
counseling men to resist tbe draft, bat
simply giving tbe facts as we know them,
let :tbe treason or what it may. There is
a lot ol cowardly, sneaking Abolitionists in
this place, who are endeavoring to make' it
appear to these soldier, that the people
in the upper end of our coanty are in open
- resistance to all law and order, thai they
have thrown ap entrenchments, and formed
, companies, for the purpose of defeating any
force that might be sent to make their arrest.
This ts not the case. It is all nonsense
the dreams aud ideas of foo's! The Abo-
: litionists of this place, where all tbe mis
chief originates, know nothing cf the true
state of feeling throughout the county, from
the very fact that they go too little among
- the people. Why is this, are they guilty of
Carrying oa a war ajainst the Dtimocratic
party, or is it a cm-ade against tbe instito
lioa of slavery) There must be something
wrong in (because or they would not have
such fears of the people neither would they
send for a mil it it ry force. The war; was
commenced, the Abolitionists said, for the
restoration of the' Union tbe bringing tack
of the seceded States and prosecuted upon
that plea until the Democratic party was
sufficiently deceived, as to get a large por
tion cf it into the army, after which the war
was immediatelymade'known through Mr.
Lincoln's proclamations to be for tbe free
dom of the negro. ; It is no longer a war for
the Union It is i war for the neVo; Mr.
Lincoln has declared it so in his letter to
the Confederate peace men, who met at
Niagara, not long -since, and in such terms
thaujo one can misunderstand birr. Is that
the kind'of Union our boys enlisted to es
tablish- black Union ? ' How long will
thearmy-continue to fight in such a cause"?
It looks to us now, that our armies are des
ponding, 'heartless, and indifferent as to the
result. They Vo not fight as ihey once did.
under their favorite General, George B. Mc
Clellan. Enumerate tbe defeats our armies
have met with since the spring campaign
opened, and then cipher up the cause, and
see if i! does not always come out Negro !
If the negro -gueslion had been kept out of
tbe present difficulty with the South, the
rebellion would have been put down two
years ago. Then, again, had rhe Abolition
ists left the institution of slavery alone, and
attended to their own business, there would
have been no war. They elected Lincoln
upon a platform objectionable to the Sooth
for the very purpose of inaugurating a war.
They have been preaching and praying for
a little "blood leuing" for th-s last thirty
years and now they have it J
Seward Three Tears ago,
"The first object of every human society
is safety or security for which, if need be,
they will, and they must, sacrifice every
other. This security is ol two kinds : one,
exemption from foreign aggression and in
fluence ; tbe other, exemption from domes
tic tyranny and sedition "
These aTe the words' of Senator 'Seward
as spoken in the United Stares Senate, Jan.
12th, 186 1. W held Ibis sentiment op to
the people at this day and ask them wheth
er Seward, and the Cabinet of which he is
a member, have -net proved themselves tin
faithful to the trust in their charge.. The
Constitution of the United States guaran
tees to every citizen safety and security.
Seward and his accessories have overthrown
the Constitution and made us to suffer on
der "domestic tyranny and sedition.' We
request every man who is not willing to
bear tbe yoke of despotism to resolve to
make any "sacrifice" that may be neces
sary in burling lrom existence this "domes
tic tyranny" instituted and enforced as a
war necessity by the apostates, Lincoln,
Seward & Co.
. Again, Mr. Seward ta the same speech,
"Experience in public affairs has con
firmed rdy opinion, that domestic slavery,
existing in any Stale, is wisely left by tbe
Constitution ol the United States excto-ive-Iv
to the care, management,aad disposition
ol that State ; and if it were in my power
I would cot alter the Constitution in that re
spect. It misapprehension of my position
needs so strong a remedy, I am willing to
vote for aa amendment to the Constitution,
declaring that it shall not, by any future
amendment, be so altered as to confer on
Congras a power to abolish or interfere
with Slavery in any State." .
With such a record upon the pages of
history we are compelled to believe that
Seward is knowingly placing himself be
lore the world as a perjured man Has he
not taken a solemn oath to support the Con
stitution of the United States 1 Can he, after
declaring that experience in public affairs
has confirmed his opinion "that domestic
slavery, exiating in any State, is wisely left
by tbe Constitution of the United States ex
clusively to the care, management and dis
position of that State," permit himself to
act as the principal officer in the cabinet
of Abraham Lincoln who not only contro
verts this wise provision of the Constitution,
but continues a war against the Southern
people and establishes "domestic tyranny"
over tbe Northern people with the avowed
purpose of abolithing domestic slavery?
We warn Mr. Seward and bis band of
desperadoes that tbe people are cognizant
of tbe usurpations of this' administration
and being prepared, will, "if need be,'
sacrifice every other 'object of human soci
ety for "safely or security" and remove
"domestic tyranny and sedition."

Provost Marshal Silver, of this place,
was out-flanked, on Saturday evening last,
when on bis cavalry raid alter Mr. Robert
C. Fruit and on fee If, while on our business
trip to Light Street. He'a me after us in
hot haste, with bis sqtiadroa of soraetiatf
dozeo or more cavalry, meeting,, not over
taking us, near tbe town we bad visited
Not halting or arresting us, as wa his er
rand, made up by his Abolition friends and
partisan advisers, we returned borne nnmo
lested. without the sicht ol Fort Lafayette
looming up before our eyes. Those iron
hand-cuffs, which have been placed on tbe
arms ol many an innocent and pore patriot,
were not presented for our adornrneot Tbe
Marshal sat, we auppose, gracefully upon
his horse, viewed us o'er and o'er, and
then proceeded oa bis way, leaving bis
flanks so exposed, as to afford us ample op
portunity to make our, escape. What a
Hero! a second Ben Butler! Capt Silver
is fast gaining notoriety in this county ; tbe
people are appreciating Lis maneuvers ir
tbe right manner. Tbe Abolitionists in this
place were snre the Marshal had a couple
of young Democrats in the right place, up
on whom they might have occasion to show
their nastiness by inflicting a" punishment
unknown to law or reason. The Marshal
has bad advisers; and - we recommend, be

Hoar. David B. Mohtgomert, of the State
Senate, has our thanks for public documents
He is an attentive and able member, al
ways on tbe aide of the right and never
with the wrong.. .
On Saturday evening last, after the arrival
ol about one hundred soldiers, Robert C.
Fruit and the Editor of this paper bad oc
casion to go to Light Street, and the Abo
liiionisln on noticing our leaving town, sus
picioned us immediately upon going up
Fishingcreek, to give information to those
drafted men. No ooner was tbe iact known
that we bad left, than tbe Provost Marshal
was irumediateiy summoned by these crazy
sap-beads and sent with a squad -of 'caval
ry in onr pursuit, with orders to make an
arrest, bring ns back, and. make an exam
ple by having us both bung. The Captain,
-with his guard, met us near Light Street, on
our return. His squad slightly halted and
allowed Ob to pass, without even raying
goodevening. Whether the Captain could
recognize us at tbat boor of the evening,
or whether the matter was a little too deli
cate for him to approach, is a question for
grave consideration. We were entirely ig
norant of being so oar Fort Lafayette until
we reached borne, when we learned the
true state of affairs. The Captain mnst-cer-lainly'leel
a little foolish ; and those who
instructed him oa this raid after us, had
better keep scarce, as we know how to ap
preciate such demonstrations. Those who
made themselves the most -conspicuous in
attempting to have oa arrested and brought
to tbe rope, we are informed, are descen
dants ot the real lories Tbe tory blood
courses thick in their veins, and their very
hearts are as black as the blackest negro in
th most extreme Southern States. They
do nothing but set about on boxes and curb
stones, alandering and abusing their Demo
cratic neighbors lor opinion's sake. They
are making war upon the Democratic party
constantly, in their deceitful, sne.king and
cowardly manner. They are ready aiid
willing to iocite mob law at any moment,
and nothing keeps them from it boi their
cowardly hearts. We dare ihem lo under
take it ; and say .veTy Democrat go well
armed to defend yoarself. your rights, and
your property. Be law-abiding, jnst and
honorable, in all your. transactions and do
ings through life, but be prepared to resist
any attempt to disfranchise yon of any of
your rights and privileges. Tbe soldiers
tbat are here are only the instruments in the
band of the authorities. We have sol
diered long enough to learn the duties and
feel tbe responsibilities resting upon a true
soldier, and know that they carry oat in
structions and execute plans as laid down
by their leaders. They are the subordinate
bodies, acting out the will and design ot
those presuming lo be higher in authority.
Hence, sheeld any property be destroyed,
offices sacked, or depredations of any char
acter committed, whilst these soldiers re
main in our county, tbe people have only
to hold these leading ana most influential
Abolitionhts responsible for these tosses
and retaliate, as the only sure mode of
reaching and bringing these scoundrels to
their sensibilities. The inaugara'ion of
mob law by these fanatics and fools will be
accepted by the Democratic party if they

The Democratic Part).
The evil of uncontrolled party domina
tion in government will be greater or less
according to the character and objects of
the party in power. The Democratic party,
which ordinarily has administered the Gov
ernment of the United Slates, even it the
utmost plentitade of its power, did not fall
into gross abuse or threaten the liberties of
the country. Although it required to be
checked upon occasion, and that its policy
and conduct should be subjected to rigid
scrutiny by an active opposition, there was
great security against its abuse of its pow
ers in the principles and doctrines to which
it held ; for its creed was established for it
by men of tbe most sterling virtue and pro
found wisdom, who justly comprehended
the nature of free governments and ibe dan
gers to which they are exposed. Strict con
struction of the Constitution, a sparing use
of the powers of Government, moderate
expenditures and equal laws, became the
articles of a political creed which preserved
the Government from abuse and degenera
cy. kept the States in. harmony, and secured
the growth aud development ot a material
prosperity unexampled in the history ol
nations. Its great merit was that it was a
constitutional party, (in the true sense of
that term.) subjecting itself cheerfully,
thoroughly and constantly, to all the rules
and limitations of the fundamental law.
lis principles themselves, checked it and
kept it within bounds. As its contests for
power were upon the very ground that there
should be no over-action of government but
only a due exertion of its authorized pow
ers, there was the less necessity to confront
it with a powerful opposition. Yei such
opposition always existed, and was mi
doubt necessary to the safe and successful
action of the Government under its man
THE PARTYOF THE ADMINISTRATION
But wi:h the party now in power the case
is widely different. Its main strength lies
in Slates which voted aainst Mr. Jefferson
in 1800, against Mr. Madiioa in 1812,
against Andrew Jackson in 1828, and against
Mr. Polk in 1844 ; and it embraces. that
school ol opinion in this country which
has always held to extreme action by the
General Government, favoritism to particu
lar interests, osarpation of Slate powers,
large public expenditures, and, generally,
to constructions of the Constitution which
favor Federal authority and extend its pre
tensions. Besides, it is essentially sectional
and aggressive the very embodiment of
that disunion partyisai foreseen and de
nounced by Wahin(ton and Jackson in
those Farewell Addresses which they left
on record lor-the instruction of their, coun
trymen, and by Henry Clay in a memora
ble ad dress to tbe Legislature of Keotucky.
That it could not safely be 'intrusted with
the powers of the Federal Government is a
conclusion which inevitably results from
This statement of its composition and char
acter. Bat the question is no louger one of
mere opinion or conjecture. Having been
tried by the actual possession of Govern
meet powers and base permitted to exhibit
fully tu true nature, it has completely justi
fied the theory wbicb condemns ir; as

Mr. Editor, Allow v's through the col
omsol your pafiEutfthow the public, the
inconsistency and dishonesty practiced by
a certain merchant and a woold-tm-ichool
reacber upot) their snb-axents, who are en
gaged in the-sale of Biess& Drake's Smooth

auspices, bearing the fate of honesty, but
in the space of a few months, we have been
wonderfully deceived and enormously swin
dled. It " oold be no more than'jnot, lo
stale tbat, 'particular censure should attach
to the junior member of the firm, as he
made the chief misrepresentations lo us, a
to the cost of the Irons, &c
In the firs't place this party represented to
us that, they had procured the Agency of
Columbia. -and, afterwards, Luzerne coun
ties, for the .sale of these Irons. This is
falsehood No. 1., as they are, nor were not,
no-more agents lor Bless & Drake, in these
counties, than we are
In the second place they declared to their
sub-agents that these Irons cost them at
Bless & Drake's establishment, in Newark,
New Jersey, Twenty two dollars and fifty cts.
per dozen; and after some little suspicion
on the p'srt of their sub-agents, aa to the
first cost of these irens, llrey, or one of the
Arm, positively drN&ed that the Irons cost
them, at the establishment were made,
Twenty dollars. This is falsehood No. 2,
and ol a Tnore enlarged characer than the
first; as upon inquiry having been made of
Bless & Drake , it has beo ascertained that
lhe Irons cost them but ten dollars per.
dozen and at tbe highest, quite recently,
not more than Eleven Dollars ! And lor

In the last place, to fill the measure of
their rascality, they were unwilling to bear
f art of tbe damage on cracked and spoiled
ror.s. but exacted of us full price, or the
eoormous sum of twenty dollars per dozen;
tho doubly robbing us, by receiving lull
pay for Irons that we were compelled to
dispose of at a sacrifice. At last they have
been discovered in their dishonest and de
ceitful operations; and we take this method
of holdrng thuw; f fc 4a-puo4-c eaze in

lormity We would warn the public gen
erally to be arch I ul ol these young men,
as they seem to practice to deceive, and
need to be guarded against. Their opera
tions in this matter, we shall, take occasion
to herald through the newspapers, from
time to time, if we do not see some speedy
mark of reformation. To leave them pass

The situation ai Atlanta continues with
on I change. Ii is- announced cow that Gen.
Sherman does not intend making any more
assaults upon the Confederate works, but
is manoeuvring to surround them, and com
pel a capiptatioo. As Hood's army is as
large as Sherman's, we do not see bow this
surrounding is lo be accomplished. Gen.
Sloe urn has taken command of Gen. Hook
er's Corps. Gen. Stanley has taken com
mand of Gen. Howard's Corps. On Aog
4'h, Sherman made his last attack upon the
Confederate lines. He attempted to push
forward his western flank so as to cover the
Montgomery Railroad. The advance was
repulsed, and the rai road is still two miles
distant. Sherman's army is gradually con
centrating to the northwest of Atlanta, and
the eastern flank is slowly moving west
ward. The Federal army may at any mo
ment attempt a grand movement around the
western side ol Atlanta. Il will meet with
strong opposition. It is reported that the
Couiederate force sent from Rich.-vunil w
aid Hood numbered twenty thousand, aud
that Beauregard whs in command.
All is quiet before Petersburg. The Con
federates stae thai Gen Grant is gradually
moving a larze portion of his force away
from bis lines, embarking them at Cny
Point, and sendiog them down the James
River. Beytsj-Mjiket firing there has been
no engagement. There is a growing belief
that urant can accomplish nothing more
than he has done, and that before long bis
army will give op the siege. The sickness
in camp is fearful, and the Federal force is
so depleted tbat now it can scarcely muster
sixty thousand men. Gen. Lee has with
drawn many regiments from his lines- and
sent them to tbe She andoah Valley and
Atlanta. The inquiry in the Federal camp
as to who was to blame for the failure on
Saturday week continues. Meade has suc
ceeded in throwinz the blame on Bumside
Burnside in his testimony made bet a poor
defense, aud appearance indicate that be
wiil be punished lor the disaster.

On Friday a small force of Confederates
attacked Mariinsburg and drove the Federal
garrison out of the town. They still hold
it, and have captured one of Sheridan 'a
wagon trains. They will not however make
any stand against a large Federal force.
The quarrel between Banks and Canby
at New Orleans has very nearly come to an
open rapture. It is most probable that
Banks is beaten. He has sent bit family
north and appears to be making prepara
tions to give up bis command. Such are
the exigencies of the service and the weak
ness of the Federal force at New Orleans
that a forcible conscription of all men
white and black between tbe ages of 18
arid 45 has been made. The conscription
is quite as sweepingand unpopular as many

T. S. 7-30 LOAN.
The'Secretary of the Treasury gives no
lice that subscriptions will be received for
Coupon Treasury Notesj payable three
years 'frdm Aug. 15th, 1864, with semi-1
annuaj interest at ibe rate ofVeven and
three-lehths per cent, per annum, princi
pal and interest both 'to be .paid in lawful
These notes will be convertible at Ihe
option of the holder at maturity, into six
per cent, sold bearing bonds, payab'e not
less than 'five nor more than twenty years
from their date, us the 'Government may
elect. They will be Issued in denomina
tions of S50, 8100, $300, Sl;000 and 85,000,
and all subscriptions must be for'fiffy dol
lars or some multiple oi fifty dollars.
The notes will be transmitted to the
owners free of transportation charges as
soon after the receipt of ihe original Cer
tificates of Deposit as they can beprepared.
As the notes draw interest from August
15th, persons making deposits subsequent
to that date must pay the interest accrued
from date of note to date of deposit.
Parties depositing twenty five dollars
and upwards for these notes at any-one
lime will be allowed a commission of one
quarter of one per cent., which will be
paid by fhe Treasury Department upon
the 'receipt 'of 'a bill for the amount, certi
fied toby fhe officer with whom tbe de
posit was made. No deductions for com
missions must be made from the deposits.
Special Advantages of this Loan.
It is a National Saving Bank, offering a
higher rale of interest than any other, and
the best security. Any "savings tfank wbicb
pays its depositors in U.S. N6ten, considers
that it is paying in the best circulating me
dium of ibe country, and it cannot pay in
anything better, for it s own assets are either-
in government securities or in
notes or bonds payable in government
It is equally convenient a a temporary
or permanent investment. The notes can
always be sold for within a fraction of their
face and accumulated interest, and are the
best security with banks as collaterals for
Convertible into a Six per cent. 5-20
tn addition ro the vary liberal interest on
the notes for three years," this privilege of
conversion is now worth about three per
cent, per annum, for the current rate for
5-20 Bonds is not less than nine per cent,
premium, and belore the war the premium
on six p?r cent. United States Stocks was
over twenty per cent. It will be seen that
the actual profit on this loan, at the preenl
market rate, is not less than ten per cent,
Its Exemption from Stale or Municipal
But aside from all the advantages we
have enumerated, a special act of Congress
exempt all Bonds and Treasury No'es fiom
local Taxation. On the average, this ex
emption is worth about two per cent: per
annum, according lo ihe rate of taxation in
various parts ot the country.
It is believed that no securities offer so
gteat inducements lo lenders as those issu
ed by the government. In all other forms
of indebtedness, tbe fait!) Or ability of pri
vate par'.ies, or stock companies, or sepa
rate communities, only, is pledge! for
payment, while the whole property of the
country is held to secure the discharge of
all the obligations of the United States.
While the government offers the most
liberal terms for its loans, il believes that
the very strongest appeal will be the loyalty
and patriotism of the people.
Duplicate certificates will be issued for
all deposits. The party depositing must
endorse upon the original certificate the
denomination of notes required, and wheth
er they are to be issued in blank or paya
ble to 'order. When so endorsed il must
be lefl with the officer receiving the depo
sit, to be forwarded to the Treasury depart
ment. Subscriptions will be received by the
Treasurer of ihe United States, at Washing
ton, the several Assistant Treasurers and
designated Depositaries, and by the
First National Hank
of jBIooiiisbtirg', Ia.
And all National Banks which are deposi
taries ot public money, and all lespsctable
Banks and Bankers throughcut the country
will give further information and afford
every faqilily to subscribers.
