We are credibly informed that on the day
of the election the "Army of the Fishing
creek" took possession of ; Fishingcreek
township, by stationing scldlers on the dif
ferent roads leading to the election polls.
Imagine the roads throughout the township
picketed or. election day ! men in blue uni
form, upon horseback, with musket in hand!
For what purpose 1; Was it lo arrest quiet
citizens, or lo intimidate Democrat, and
thus keep back the Democratic vote? What
does all this mean? They migfct as well
take charge of the polls and re-enact the
scenes at the elections in Maryland and
Delaware ! jire ihe people here in rebel
lion ? No'!" But every act of the adminis
tration, and its supporters, towards the
people of this county is calculated to make
a disturbance in some shape or other. The
people ol ihis county have borne ranch ;
and are --daily suffering oppression in its
most aitgraa'.ed form ! These things are
tolerated becaflse the people upon whom
the authorities inflict their tyrannical and
dspoiic acts of lawlessness are respecters
of law and order, and 'Uphold and maintain
the law and Constitution of their country
under which they live. There is a day of
retribution awaiting the men who are mis
ruling our government. Time is a great

Facts and Figures for the People.
Under a Democratic administration, farm
ers, mechanics and laboring men, who
work hard for their money, could buy good
coffee at twelve cents per pound, good su
gar at eight cents per pound, and good syr
up at twelve and fiiteen cents per quart.
Under the miserable Republican adminis
tration that has turned everyihing upside
down in this country, these hard working
people have to pay filty-five cents for col
fee, thirty lor sugar, and forly for syrup !
These and other articles that are needed in
every house cost four times ai much row
as they dtd when the government was ad
ministered by the Democrat".
But it will be said that the farmer gets
more for his flour, and the mechanic and
the laboring man get higher wages, than
they did under Democratic rule. This" is
true. But the farmer don't cet lour limes
as much "for his wheat, nor does the me
chanic fr his oay's work. Therefore the
rise in prices is unequal and operates o
the disadvantage of the farmer, the me
chanic and the laboring man.
When wheat wasone dollar and coffee
twelve and a half cents, one bu.shel of
wheat would buy eight pouud cf coffee.
But with wheat 3t two dollars and a hall,
and coffee nt fidy-five cents, a buhel ol
wheat will buy but little over four pounds
of coffee. And so with wazrs. The man
who got one dollar under Mr. Bochnn's
administra'ion, could buy nearly twice as
much coffee, sugar, syrup and muslin with
the proceeds of his day's labor, as can be
boniihl by the man who gets two dollars a
day under Mr Lincoln.
fn the late election the Democracy have
elected in the neighborhood of lourteen
Congressmen out of twenty-four. In this
district we lose Pioliet by about two hun
dred votes. This is a strong Abolition di
irict, but the popularity of our candidate
coupled wiih the good cause he was en
gaged in has cut down their large boasted
majoritf lo a mere figure. The Abolition
ists for a lime felt that their man was lo-t
in the fog ; however when the smoke blew
away he was just seen and that was all.
Had the campaign hs'ed a week longer,
anc' a lew more stum p speet hes been made
by the Opposition, Col. Piollel would have
been our next Congressman. He is the
man this district should have to represent
them- The people have chosen otherwise,
and we lear thev will ere long regret it.
Mr. Mercur's Abolition ideas are thick and
plenty, and he delights in promulgating
them, even at a time like thic. The people
of this district are yet partially white, ar.d
are opposed to :he miscegenation doctrines.
.Who is Commanding the troops in Colum
bia county and what are they doingl They
seem to be here lor i,o other purpose than
to arrest Democrats, lake them away, and
keep them from voting! Previous to the
election several arrests were made in the
connty, of men drafted in the nine months'
service, as welt as the arrest of lour or five
citizens ! Ia Sugarloaf township, we are
credibly informed, David Lewis and Eze
kiel Cole were arrested on the evening before
the election, taken into camp, and held as
prisoners until tbe election was over, when
they were released and told that they could
go home, that nothing more was required
ot tbem. We would again ask, who is
commanding all Ihis kind of work? It it
the work of General Couch, or is it the wiil
and bidding of a few of tbe leading fanatics
of this county? It seems to us that the
latter is the case, when civil and peaceable
Democrats, like Messrs. Lewis and Cole,
are arrested under the circumstances above
described, held till after an election, and
then released without even the shadow ol a
trial or showing that there were any charges
against them ! W7hat, fellow-citizens, can
we think of such conduct ? Dees the ad
ministration approve of such actions on the
part oi their officers? We rather think no.
They abuse and magnify their little power !

What Sherman will da.
-From The Richmond Enquirer, Oct. 8
Sherman is shut up in Atlanta by For
rest with his lines of communication so
desrloyed that his Government has not
heard from him for several days He cap
tured Atlanta, but it may yet prove his ruin.
We learn from a reliable -source that in
Washington City there is great rejoicing
over the repotted movement of Hood
lowart the Alabama line. It is said to have
been just ihe move that Sherman desired
Hood to make That sending off the car
airy. toward TennesseeJ and inarching his
army toward the rear of Sherman, was
playing into the tatter's hand. Sherman is
raid ' to have accumulated from fifty to sixty
days' supplies in AtIantadoriug te truce;
and as soon as Hood 'is far away lo the
right, and Forrest and Wheeler deep into
Tennessee, Sherman will start on his really
grand campiin for the seacoast at Savan
nah the men of Sherman's army carryinir
in their knapsacks len days' rations, and
ten days' rations in wagons. The army ol
Sherman, concentrated into a solid mass, is
is .believed to be strong enough to over
come any force he may find in his front,
and his start of Hood will enable him to
keep far enorgh ahead of him to prevent
any delay or consumption of snpplips te
fore reaching the seacoasl. The country
overrun will be stripped of all sopplie,
and the march through made in fifteen or
twenty days. This is said to be the cam
paign. Will it succeed ?
The distance to Savannah is about two
hundred and fifty miles, and (rem iwenty
to twenty five days will be required to
make the march. If ihe people turn oat in
Georgia as they have done in Virginia,
blocking op the roads in his front, hanging
upon his flanks, harrass ing his rear, and
capturing his forair.in.2 parties, his march
will "prove his ruin; but if the people fly
from hi- pun and do nothing lo retard his
march, thermal may reach the seacoat
Such a march across Georgia would destroy
the railroads and deva-tate much of the
country, bnl oihrwie would do no harm.
Tennessee and Ktutocky would be open lo
our armies, and'the way lo the O.'iio invite
us to enter and re occupy. The enemy
would herald hi flight of Sherman of his
victorious march through the Confederacy
and claim that it was the completion of the
campaign. It may smced, and it may
fail; if it is not successful, Sherman is ru
ined and his army captured.
By some it is believed that Sherman will
keep within Atlanta and comp-l Forres:,
for want of enpplies lo move off his lines
of communication, and that the accumula
tion of supplies W4ji to enable him to stand
an ordinary siege. Bj) we ar rather in
clined to believe thai the bold and despe
rate effort to march to Savannah will be the
solution of th Atlanta problem. To un
dertake to retreat to Chatanooga would be
to confess failure upon the heels ol admit
ted triumph, "and would mike his name a
by-word ol contempt," as ell as roi n :he
prospecs of Lincoln. To march through
Georgia, crushing under the Wfih of his
army all oppposing forces and capturing
Savannah, with its depot of prisoners, and,
Irom the seacoast, turning in early Spring
to reopen a Northernward cfihpaign, would '
be a military achievement ol no ordinary
character. The very difficulties that ap
pear to beel such an undertaking may
contnbu'e to i:s complete success. If our
authorities, because ol these difficulties,
take no step to prevent his march, Sher
man will overcome the difficulties and
reach Savannah. Let General Beauregard
look oat both front and rear.
MortE Ttranny. The most tyrannical
and arbitrary outrage committed lately by
any set of men, either civil or otherwise,
was the act perpetrated on the Oravgcville
Acadkmt, a few days since, by the military
in this connty. The school was visited by
a pair of shoulder straps, accompanied, as
we understand, by a fanatic or two of that
place, and Ihe Principal, J. B. Pat on, in
formed that he must evacuate the building,
take out the seats with all his fixture, with
in such a leogth of lime, or they would be
thrown out. Thin was accordingly done,
and the Academy taken possession of by
the military, and turned into a hospital,
while (hero were other buildings in the
place that could have been obtained, and
which would have answered every pur
pose, without interfering with ihe Aca
demy. It looks very much like ihe work
of a little partisan malice on the part of
certain citizens ol that place. This school
has been called in oar presence a "Demo
cratic Institution7', but we will guarantee to
any one that Prof Pat ton does not attempt
to teach politics in his school. Would that
we could say so much for the other institu
tion, under the control ol Professor Walker.
This turning a public or private school into
the street, and taking charge of the build
ing by the military, is the most high-banded
act that has been perpetrated in this
county by Lincoln's sold-ers, and may ft be
"In respect' to 'r. Lincoln, I continue to
hold eztcify the senlimqnts contained in my
le'ler of acceptance. I consider th d his ad"

Lee's ajmy at Antietam, yet they are per

failure to bag Hood's army at Atlanta.

Infringement of the ri:ht to bear Arms.
The Constitution ennncia'es nothing'
more distinctly than the right of the peop'e
to keep and bear arrlis, and it adds in une
quivocal langoa;e that this right "shall not
be infringed." This clause in the Consti
tution is founded -en a 'reliance upon the
people ; i! is an endorsement of the theory
of the capability of Ihe masses for sell
government It is predicated upon the
Democratic principle" that the people are
the governing powers; and they in their
supreme capacity have a right to bear arms
or possess themselves of such instrumen
talities as in other povenments are suppos
ed to 'be the especial prerogatives ol the
lew in whom government is invested and
for whose benefit it is created.
In -countries where the masses are esti
mated at bit one remove from brutes, who
are legislated for, and who are considered
incapable and.unworthy of participation in
any legislation, having reference to them
selves, the right of the people to bear ar ns
is universally denied. When despotisms
are attempting lo subjugate a free people,
one of iis first stops is to disarm the peo
ple, thai it iry rivet them in chains with
out fear of resistance. When Austria has
placed her foot upon the neck of Hungary,
one of her first steps is to dis-irm her vic
tims. When Russia gradually prosrees
in her labor o! crushing out the last marks
of maniiood and liberty in Poland, she dis
arms the people.
We can see all these features of foreign
despotims being developed in our own
unfortunate country nnder her present ru
ler Everywhere have the wishes and
i!lof ihe majority been rendered nuga o
ry .or Openly defied. Lirroln and his ad
visers have arrogated lo themselves powers

of the Gucernmen!. This is always ili

riahts which bsbng only 10 the people ar
usurped and concentraied in the hands of
the usurping powers. Af'er thee power
have been seized upon, the subjugation of
the peop'e is a matter of comparative ease.
It is to this position that Lincoln has
reached. He hold in his hand to dav the
power rf the habeas corpus ; the right to
inflict punishment; the war rnakins pow
er; the ritht to make and unmake sover
eign States ; the rialit to conscript the able
bodied pipolitim ; the power of expatria

these extraordinary powers Lincoln has
usurped and now exercises at his own
Havlnjj thus esab!ished in himself all

bavins, in fact, established a complete des
polism, he now lakes a further stp and
has attacked the hitherto untouched right
of ihi people to bear arms.
The first step in this direction has been
taken by Hein'z'eman, who ha prohibited
all traffic in arms for sixty days in the
Stales cf Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

The Colombia Ceanly t'ntragf.
It will be recollected that weeks ago forty
five citizens of Columbia county were hur
ried through ihis city to Fort Mifflin by tbe
war powers of Lincoln. A large force of
solJiers had been sent to that county to put
down an organized resistance to the con
scription, but ii doe not appear that there
was any attempt or design of (he sort, for
the men who were arrested were all taken
at their homes, in the night, we believe,
unarmed and unsnspicious of harm.
These victims of Federal tyranny were
hurried off without any preparation, wr.h
out euffic ent clothing, and without being
allowed to make any arrangements for the
support of their families. As a conse
quence of this and of Ihe great destruction
of propertr and large consumption of lood
in that locality, by ihe eight hundred troops
retained . tliere till a few days ago, a large
section of tbe country is completely impov
erished. Many families have been stripped
of everything ia the shape of food" and
necessaries, and are completely destitute.
In many instances the wives and children
of the men who were dragged from their
homes have been compelled lo perform the
heaviest farm work -to procure a subsis
tence ; and in some instances, we are
informed, the food thus procured has
been atolen or taken from them by per
sons who assert that ' copperheads have
no rights that a loyal man is bound to re
spect." There is widespread depression
and suffering in that section ol the Stale ;
and, although within a fewdays the troops
so long stationed in the county hav been
ordered to Clearfield and Cambra counties
perhaps to efTect similar arrests gloom
stills hangs as a ball over the minds of the
The men carried lo Fort Mifflin were not
informed of the char t them, and
were not allowed to txke any measures lo
secure release or a speedy trial. Thus they
have been kept imprisoned and in igno
rance of their crimes and their fate, until
on Thursday four of them, we are told,
were brought to this city for "trial" by court
marli'il, and lodged in the Provost Mar
shal's crib on Fourth street. Their names
are Rohr M'H ekrv, Commissioner of ihe
county ; DAMti. M Hsnrv, Treasurer of ihe
county; Samuel Kline and John Rantz
1 hey have been informed that they may
have the benefit of eaunsel and can send
to Columbia county for witnesses to rebul
ihe criminating testimony of ihe Govern
ment spies and informers. Whether they
have been informed of the charges against
them i more than we can say.
Ii 1m s been suggested that these four in
dividuals have been brought here at this
time lor military "trial," merely to compel
the presence, as witnesses,, of a large
number of their feliow Democrats of Co
lumbia county, and thus compel them to
loe their votes at Tuesday's election. The
Shoddy dynasty, not content with disfran
chising forty-five men, (guiltless no doubt
ol any wrong nn.'er the laws,) desire to
cotriptl these four recn, through wrong and
suffering, to be the in-trumeuts in dis'ran-ct.i-ing

Affairs at Petersburg are slill without
change The (wo armies lie quietly in
camp, even picket firing having for the
time ceased. It is reponed that General
Grant has relieved Generals Meade and
Warren from command. They were or
dered lo attack the strong Confederate po
sitions near the Weldon Railroad ; 'they
protested against it, as it would cause an
immense lo-s of life, and mot probably be
unsuccessful ; and Grant removed thern.
Hancock, it is rumored, will be Meade's
successor. Whether these reports are true
we cannot say, but a1! the old cah-ils against
Meade, which once were so s'rng, have
been revived. Birney is still in Philadel
phia, very low wiih a fever. It will be a
month before he can resume his command.
Sheridan's barbarous devastation in Ihe
Shenandoah Valley .has already borne its
fruits The guerrillas are so numerous
and so savage in their attacks upon his
rearguards and supply train, that he finds
himself unable to hold a position so far ad
vanced as Straborg His trains from Har
per's Ferry are intercepted, and Mosety
will not allow his gangs of laborers to re
pair the Manassas Gap Railroad. So Sher
inan bas no aletrnative but to abandon !
Sira-burg, and retreat northward towards;
Winchester. It is said he will bring his
army a l the way back to Charlesmjvn and
Harper's Ft-rry. A he retreat", his devas
lattoti is as universal as thai made in the
Valley south of Strasburg. Desolation
reiuns supreme. The result M it all i,
that never sine the war began has guerrilla
war been so bloody as it is now in the
The New York Indenendent s'a'es that
General Sherman will make no attempt this
year to advwnce south ol Atlanta. For over
threa weeks we have pot had a line of
news Irom his army. The railroad and
telegraph connecting Atlanta with Chata
noog are still broken, and the Confederates
have iheir on way. On Saturday last,
Whee'er captured Rome, a town in Geor
gia east ol Sherman's supply railroad, and
took ttiree thousand necro ironps prisoners.
On the same day. he dashed into Msriefs,
near the Kenew Mountain and on the
railroad, and spiked the cannon. Hood is
near Marietta, where the bulk of Sner
man's troops are. The two armies are
rer-ting on their arm, watching each other.
All ihe Federal troops have been driven
from S iih wesiern Virginia. O ie body
was followed by General Brerkeundge al
most 'o Knoxville, in Easi Tenue-see
Bnrbridne v lioe command is now near
Lexington, Kenucky, reports that be iost
heavily on the retreat.
The defeat of Washburne's command
near Eat Point, Alabama, by Forrest, is
confirmed. All Washburne's - artillery
eight guns was captured. Two ol his
caissons were exploded, aid one of his
transports disabled oy the Confederate
nhel's. Washburne has ha-i retreated.
General Price has made his headquar
ters at B-'oneville, Mionri. just sou h of
the Missouri Kiver. North ot the river the
Federal troops have abandoned near y all
the State, and are concentrating al Macon
City, northwest of St. Louis
In front of Peierburg. there is the tibial
picket and artillery firing. A recoriioi
sance sent out by General Butler, on Thurs
day last, advanced about two an J a half
miles in the direction of Richmond, au l
alter some kirinihing wiih parties of Co i
federates, returned. They did not fi id ihe.
enemy in torce. Th Confederate cavalry
are reported concenira ing on Gram's lelt,
apparently lo maka a raid on his rai!ruad
communication. Preparations were ma
king lo prevent this. Secretary S.aMoti an I
other gentlemen connected with Ihe Ad
ministration are on a visit :o 4he front.
General Sctr field has arrived at Chafa
nooga, and taken command there. The
place is to be strengthened in anticipation
ol an attack by the enemy Hood's arm y
is reported at Da'ton, anJ Shernan was.
said to be close in bis rear. Dalfn is near
the Tennessee line. The Confederate, it
appears, are still besieging Alatoona, as a
despatch says that ihe garrison a that
place were making an obstinate defense.
It now comes out that in the recent attack
on Alatoona, the Confederates capiured
two Federal regiments.
General Price, in Missouri, has left
Boonevilie, arid moved Ins artiy towards
Lexington. The Federal cava'ry under
General Sanborn, met with a defeat on
Wednesday last, at IVgah. Gr.eral Roe
crans has arrived at Jefferon Cut.
