"From ths Pakm.of Thursday," Dec
22J, we find the following assertion :
"Lying is hal the Confederacy has al
ways thrived on beau" v
This is one of the many consoling ideas
from which the Abolitionists African citi
zens of American descent obtain "surcease
offcorrow." Sorrow for the unhappy con
dition of our country, caused by an Internal
eruption of the people of the South, incited
by the fanaticism of Northern jraiiors. An
eruption, the destruction of which is only
equalled by the terrible convulsions of a
volcane, issuing forth a lava which over
flows the whole land and ettends its influ
ence to the nations of. the whole wor-ld. It
hfcS crumbled the edifice of civil liberty in
the Unite J States, and corrupted the admin
istration of the laws, which were enacted
to promote the general welfare and secure
the blessings of liberty to ourselves and
- posterity. The old manner of constring
-laws in accordance with equity and the
iatention of the maker, has been Cast aside,
and a new era is begun in which the will of
the executive and the dictations of Negro
"philanthroy, form the baeis ol executive de
cisions. The admin iatratiort, according to
the admissions of its leader, has been com
pelled, by the extensive power oMhe Con
federals, to suspend the writ, of habeat
torpvs, overthrow the Constitution, punish
citizens charged with ciminal acts by order

'Captnre of Savannah following so closely
the brilliant victory of Thomas over Hood
before Nashville, is highly gratifying. In
deed, many sanguine persons profess to
read in these signs an early close of the war
and the return of peace aud prosperity. But
let us not be loo sanguine after.nearly four
years of war, with the flower of oar volun
teers in the ranks, . we have progressed to
our present portion ; calculating from this,
and allowing for grsatly increased successes
in the future, it wquld take at least four
years more of bloody .war to drive the reb

that their early submission will obviate 'be

The Abolition party, it would seem, fron
present indications in certain quarters, bas
been greatly deceived.' We mean more
particularly the honest portion ol that party,,
for there are tome honest and well meaning
men in the Republican ranks. The grjat
mass of that party voted for the re-election
of Abraham Lincoln with the belief that
his retention in office would have the effect
of putting the rebellion out of existence in
a very short time. They were taugh: to be
lieve that the ree!ec:ion of Iikcoln
would end te tear settle all difficulties be
tween the North and South pat an end to
all drafts, and greatly reduce taxation I How
this matter is going can plainly be seen.
Only a few days ago we were delighted to
read in our daify papers an official an
nouncement for "THRhE Hundred Thousand
more msn I" This goes to show how near
the Republican orators come to the truth
jas( Fall, in. their appeals for votes, when
they told us that the re-election of Lin
coln would end the war in less than three
months, that there would be do more drafts,
and thai taxation woxld cease! This they
told ne! .This they bave been preaching
into tbe ears of the people for the last three
years. Thsse Abolition fanatics, knaves,
fools and preachers, certainly knew better.
But the great hobby, with them was the ne
gro, the freedom of the negro! If they can
place the negro on an equality with the
white man, it matters not to them how ma
ny lives are lost in accomplishing that ob
ject. The negro, in their estimation, as
well as ours, is theit equal ; and they shall
enjoy all benefits that may be derived from
any social intercourse that they may have
with the American citizen of African de
scent. We would not rob the Abolition
party of any of those blessings and privi
leges so much sought after from among
"coffy." We'll let "cuffy" take care ol
hims&II awhile, acd look

Of t: 1 i D ui an.

elected Lincoln for ihe purpose ol putting
an end to all drafts, but that failed to stop the
wlieel. What's to be done now ? "We
don't want to go to war nobody, wants to
go to war. But here is "the draft," whaj
will we do with it? The people would not
trust Gcorgk B McClcllas for fear they
would be drafted. They said McClellan
was a war man ! We were left to infer that
Lincoln was not, but would favor a cessation
of bostilites. But what do we see; why
the votes are' scarcely counted, when we
read ''another call" for "2Ar Hundred
Thousand more Jeit." Those same men
who voted, for Lincoln, voted for this
'draft;" ihey told him to make it; they
sustained and sanctioned all that he had
done, and now let them "grin and bear it."
Good for them. "Don't vote for McClellan
or you'll be conscripted !" We will look to
see tbat popular vote of Lincoln's rush into
tbe army and fill up this late call !
Ths Tkicmph of the Repcblican Partv
and its Defeat. It is in accordance with
the philosophy of things that when a party
is elected to power for the accomplishment
of great ends and fails it will be swept out
of existence. The Republican party was
successful at the last two elections'because
the people believed that it would put down
the rebellion and bring back pence to the
country ; but its victorious triumph will as
suredly prove a defeat. The firs: four years
ol rule left the rebellion 'unsuppressed, and
the people expect that the -war will be clo
sed within the first twelve months of its
second term. If it is not but if on thj other
hand, a weak and hesitating policy should
insure four years more of internecine war
fare the party will be swept off the eartb
with a howl of general execration. Even
if it should sncceed in potting the rebellion
under within the coming var there will be
a reaction, financial and political, that will
cut its li'e short its utmost limit being the
expiration of its supremacy in office. There
is a settled opinion that the radical portion i
c-f the Republican party is one of the prin
cipal authors of the war, and when the ex
citement conseqneni upon its progress is
over, and the account of public debt comes
to be settled, tbe day of reckoning will have
arrived. In any event, then, it will be locnd
that the triumph of the Republican party is
virtually its defeat. N. Y. Herald.

Gen. Sherman is said not to bave reached
Savannah in full dress military suit. A correspondent-describing
h it meeting, upon ar
rival with General .Foster, says their first
interview was in the cabin of the gunboat
Nenama, when the latter arose from his
coach and, resting 6ri his crutches, received
General Sherman who was attired in a plain
military overcoat, without a
slouch bat, a spur on one

Letter from Daniel Mcllenrf.
Harrisburu, Dec. 29ih, 1864.
Hon. C. R. BrcKALKw,
' Sir : I wrote you a few
days ago directed to Washington. Learn
ing Congress has adjourned I suppose it
has not reached you: Therefore I'll write
to you again. M trial has again come to
a close. I have heard nothing yet as to the
result: only rumors. I bave bad a very
tedious time : I was arrested in the morn
ing of 31st. of August;, was aroused from
my slumbers just -st the break of day by
rapping at the front door "of my house.
Dressed myself; went down stairs and
opened the door ; perceived my hoose was
surrounded by armed soldiers. They came
in and,searched my dwelling Irom cellar to
garret, in search for arms as they said but
finning none, as 1 never owned any. Then,
one of them tapped me on the shoulder
and said, "yon can consider yourself a Pris
oner." I asked to have lime to eat my
breakfast, and my wife insisted upon 'heir
giving me time for that purpose, but it was
not granted. I was taken with others up
to Benton, four miles above where I live,
and put in Benton Church with a large par
ly from the neighborhood. In tbe course
of about an hour Col. Stewart made his
appearance and took the pulpit. After con
siderable whispering, winking and signifi
cant grimaces, foriy.five of us were selected
out and pat under strong guard, and ordered
t march. I'll not attempt to depicture to
you with what difficulty that forced march
of sixteen.miles to Bloomsburg was accom
plished by some of tbe olJ men who bad
bad nothing to eat from the evening before.
I was forced past my home; not allowed to
go in to get a change tof clothes. My wife
followed., me with some cakes and a few
articles of clothing. Was forced past par
ents, sisters and brothers who stood by the
way-side ; not allowed to take them by the
i hand and bid them farewell. .Their ex-

overflowing. It caused tears to course free
ly down the bronzed cheeks o1 the guards
beside me. It was very trying, though I
did not allow my feelings to overcome me.
The outrage made me indignant or I should
have been completely overcome as my be
ing is entwined wi h my Friends. We
were hurried to . Bloomsburg ; got there
about 8 P. M ; stopped but a short time and
were put on the cars, not knowing our des
tination. .Were brought on to Harrisburg ;
stopped but a few moments ; were not al
lowed to get anything to eat; startedoff
dgain we knew not whither; arrived at
Philadelphia aboul 8 A. M. and were
marched to 5lh and Buttonwood and pul
in barracks. At 11 'o'clock we had some
raiions furnished us being the first in 40
honrs. Those of" us who were not too
much exhausted partook with a keen relish.
Started from the barracks about 1 P. M ;
marched to the Arch sireet - wharf ; were
pul on board the Rdybold and forwarded to
Fort Mifflin. Tr.ere we were marchrd up
in front of ihe Colonel's quarters and de
tained there something near an hour in the
scorching sun. Sir, it was a pitiable sight
to see the exhausted appearance of th.ejnen,
particularly the old and infirm, aa there
were several such amongst us. Thern was
a cell cleared in the meantime in the Bomb
proof for our reception. , It was in a very
filthy conditioa, lull cf vermin. I have
not space to give you a description of the
place in which we were confined. It never
was intended for and is entirely unfit to

and corrupt society I have been compelled
to endure. Their vulgarity and profanity I
cannot portray. Tbe confnsion at this
writing renders it almost impossible to
write. The anxiety of mind has been great,
being on trial so long, and I was aware of
the effort they were making to convict me.
I never shunned an investigation, but de
sired it. AH I asked was a fair trial, but
was so closely confined that I had but little
chance to prepare for defence. Being so
far from home rendered it very difficult to
Lave the facts in the case fully developed,
and bad it not have been for the persever
ing and energetic action of my Dear Friends
at Home jn my behalf I could cot have
made much of a defence. As for proceed
ings of trial, I refer yon to documents in
posession ol H. Alricks Esq. of Harrisburg.
I would like to have gone back in my case
to the commencement of the rebellion and
come up to the present time, but was not
allowed to go back of March 1863.
In conclusion ; I never violated any law,
civil or military, to the best of my knowl
edge. If I ever did it was an error of ihe
bead and not of the heart. I have been
taught from my earliest boyhood, by kind
and religious parents, to observe the laws
of my country, and I have regarded them
as second only to tbe laws ot my God. My
imprisonment 1 consider an outrage, and I
have never begged for my release. I bave
spurned tbe idea. Liberty is dear, but I
cannot and will not sacrifice principles or
manhood to obtain it. I hope the day is not
far distant when a !ull expose will be made

The Fntnre of the Democracy .
Considering the fierceness with which
the late Pretidential canvass wes conducted
by the friends of the Administration, and the
extraordinary means resorte d to by them to
secure a triumph, it is really amazing and
gratifying to witness the courage and resig
nation of the defeated Democracy. When,
Tn 1852, the gallant Whig party was defeat
ed, (after having been in power for four
years, )it was never after beard of as a na
ional organization. It lingered a while, in
certain localities, but it totally disappeared
in, and was swallowed up by the Fcemohl
movement of 1856.
Four years after this the Democracy was
torn assunder by the Southern secession
movement! -at Charleston, which completed
its work alterwards in Baltimore ; the con
sequence of which was the overwhelming
election ot the' present Executive. Since
then, notwithstanding our almost crushed
condition in i860, and the overwhelming
odds arrayed against us in the way of patronages-made
necessary by the necessities
of the warbesides desertion of our promi
nent leaders who, were lured into Abolition
ism by prominent appointments, our intre
pid organization has weathered the storm
of unrelenting partizan persecution, and is
now tbe most formidable and compact pajty
that ever was defeated in this country. This
vitality is caused by the diamond strength
and beauty ol its principles and teachings.
It is not an ephemeral party ; nor does it
change its name and purposes to suit every
wind of political doctrine. Triumph never
caused it to forget its duty to the country ;
nor is it now disposed to despair of the re
public, because of its defeat. Sucb a party
may occasionally be defeated, but never en
tirely vanquished ; and from this time forth
do matter how the war may be conducted or i
terminated, it is certain to

upon lo control
the Government of the country. But in or
der to be successful when the time for ac
tion again arrives, it will be oecessary lo
gel rid of many incumbrances which im
peded our efforts in the late canvass. We
quite agree with an intelligent cotempo
rary who says :
"This great wore should spring from the
inspiration ot tbe people, led by fresh and
vigorous minds, uncontaminaiqd with the j
fatal propensity to official position whioh !
bas corrupted so many of our politcians j
Principles must be sought out and followed, j
rather than a shiftless vacillating policy in
our public affairs. If anything is to be pre

cesMiies.of tbe hour and the peril. of the re
Upon the Democratic press will rest to a
j great degree the responsibility ol enl ighten-
ing the people in reference to this impor
taut subject,' and as a member of that frater
nity, we-will take an early opportunity to '
enter upon a discussion of those grave ques-
lions which have yet a vital interest to the j
American people. We have heretofore
never failed to raise our voice in behalf of J
what we have believed to be Democratic I
principles, and we regard ihe p'eent a the j
proper time for a full and candid discussion
oi the condition of the country.
By way ol illustrating the " inspkatron of j
the people," it is but necessary to allude to I
the late" Chicago Convention. There the
people's inspiration forced Ihe nomination I
of McClellan, in spite of ihe politicians,,
who wire generally opposed to him ; but ,
still the record of those who had conceived
! fresh and vigorous minds, uncontaminated
with the fatal propensity to official p'osiiion,
which has corrupted so many of our politi
cians." So says the Pittsburg Post.
Smobb for the Curb of Wounds. A cor
respondent of the Country Gentleman recom
mends smoke as a cure for wounds in men
and quintal. He says : "I cut my foot with
an sxp! The lady of the house, siezing'the
foot while it was yet bleeding freely, held t
it over a pan containing smoking tag locks,
lo a few minutes the bleeding" stopped, and
the smoke was removed, and a bandage
applied to protect it from accidental blows.
Tbe wound never suppurated, and conse
quently never pained me. I have seen ihe
remedy tried in many similar cases, and al-
tways with the same results. Let the read
er Dear in mind that no liniment or salve,
drawing or healing should be applied. You
have merely to smoke the wound well, and
nature will do the rest I suppose the smoke
of burning wooJ would produoe the same
results, bnt it would not be so manageable.
There is a "principle in the smoke of wool,
which, when applied to the flesh, coagu

with decided benefit to all ulcers, wounds

It is said thai Admiral Porter has already
received over two hundred-thousand dollars
as his share of prize-money since the out
break ol hostilities. It is but natural to
oppose that he accords with Mr. Lincoln
in the opinion that the war might be car

THE WAR NEWS.
The attack on Wilmington has been aban
doned. The expedition is given op. Gen.
Butler with his land forces has returned to
Fortress Monroe. Admiral Porter with the
fleet has withdrawn until ordered to "re
proceed " Butler says that Fcrt Fisher is
impregnable. . .
A war has begun between military and
naval men about the responsibility for the
disaster at Wilmington. Each branch of the
service lays the blame on the other. The
navy says that Butler should have made an
assault. The army retorts that Porter's pow
der explosion should have damaged the fort.
This is the principal occupation not only of
ihe military, but also of the newspapers,
and though there is great difficulty in deci
ding who is to blame, there eerns to be a
perfect agreement of all concerned that the
expedition was a failure. Butler has with
drawn all the land forces from the expedi
tion and has gone up the James to his old
headquarters at Deep Bottom, leaving the
troops under Weitzal to sail up from For
tress Montoe more leisurely. The greater
part of Porter's fleet is at Beaufort, North
Carolina, taking supplies and coal on bord.
A desultory bomdardment of Fort Fisher is
kept op by a few vessels, but it is rather to
make a show of doing something than the
precursor of another attack. Tbe Federal
losses on the epdition are variously esti
mated. Five or six of the vessels were se
riously damaged ; six ol the hundred poun
der Parrott guns burst. The loss in the
fleet was 75 killed and wounded, ; in the
army it is stated to be 1,470.
There seems to be some discrepancy in
the Confederate and Federal accounts of
Hood's late defeat. The Confederate ac
counts state that Hood's losses are about e-
qr.al to Thomas", and that seventy pieces of
cannon were brought by Hood sontR of Co
lombia, in his retreat. The Federal ac
count has it that Hood lost four times aa
many men as Tnnmasand that when Hood
crossed Durk river, at Colombia, he had
but two ca'iesons, and they were being drag
ged off by the Confederate soldiets.
We have contradictory accounts of the
movements of Generals Davidson and Gran
ger in Western Florid. It appears tbat
Granger ascended the Pascagoula river
about thirty miles, under the convoy of two
tin clad gunboats, and then leaving the
river, marched towards Mobile. Nothing
has been heard from him, however Da-
' vidon,with a large force of federal cavairy ,
