DRAW TEE LINES.
There are some citizens of the free States,
truthfully remarks tho Philadelphia U. S.
Gazette, who imagine that they can be for and
against the government ; in favor of the war,
and yet give moral aid and countenance to the
foe ; who demand vigorous action, and vehe
mently oppose its details ; who vaguely profess
willingness to do some undefined act of loyal
ty, or favor some impossible and inconceivable
measure, and stigmatize at every step of our
progress each act of the national administra
tion as tyrannical, despotic, inhuman, barba
rous, or unconstitutional. If men conspire
against the national Union, under cover of
local official station, it is despotic to arrest
them ; if when in custody of a garrison they
are not let out to go before some traitorous
judge, who only waits the opportunity to set
them free, it is unconstitutional ; if, because
of the impossibility of carrying on war with
an army which changes every three months,
the government calls for men for three years,
it is a monstrous assumption of power; it regu
lar troops are found indispensable to the ef
ficiency of the army, and the number of them
is therefore increased, it is an alarming usur
pation, and means despotism ; if treasonable
presses assail the government, and defame its
army, the Union, the loyal States, and all not
in open war on the side of the rebels, and the
authorities will not permit this to be done at
points where there is any real danger, the
freedom of the press is invaded. In fact there
is no possible act of the government which is
ot attacked by these men, who if their loyalty
be questioned wax red with wrath and will not
be appeased. . Is it then true that in such a
contest as this men can be faithful and yet
chuckle over every reverse of our arms ?
Can their hearts be other than traitorous if the
indispensable acts of self preservation com
mitted by the government be so horrible to
them ? Can they love the Union, and yet be
in ill-disguised sympathy with its enemies ?
Can they be white and black at the same mo
meat loyal and disloyal, for us and against
us, with the supporters of the government and
assisting in its destruction ? If they put poi
son into the mouths of their children, must
we believe that it is harmless sugar-house
molasses because they aver it to be so ?
It may be a mental obliquity on our part,
but really all such persons are, to our thinking,
neither pardonable by reason of unavoidable
circumstances, nor to be overlooked because
they may in time repent, nor constructive or
doubtful in their errors, but traitors who de
serve to be pointed at with the finger of scorn
by every honest man ; who should be subject
to the socXtl ban, and made to feel the iudig
nation of those whom they seek to injure and
betray. These persons, bo tbey male or fe
male, have no right to enjoy the protection
and security of the north ; the comforts and
luxuries of its civilization ; the benefits of its
scientific culture and refinement, while tbey
seek to degrade its people, to exalt a barbarous
oligarchy, and to ruin the best government
the world ever saw. Tbey are seeking to
manufacture a sentiment here which cannot
bat be extremely dangerous. In times past
the sooth has always been driven to extremes
by the knowledge that it was supported by a
powerful party at the north. If it can obtain
anch aid among us now, what is to become of
the republic. We do not hesitate to say that
it is now becoming the bounden duty of every
loyal citizen to draw the lines firmly, and set
the seal of condemnation openly and publicly
on all these domestic traitors.
PcBtic Sesiimert. Everywhere, outside
of the Breckinridge Democracy of Clearfield
County, the Union sentiment grows stronger
According to Edward Everett, there is but
little difference between publishing treasons'
ble sentiments, and acting them out. Both a
like are calculated to weaken the Government
aid aid the Rebels. The public good . and
safety, according to that growing popular
seatiment, seemed to require the suppression
of certain Secession newspapers at the North,
and accordingly a number have been suppress
ed, the Day-Book among them. This will be
a great loss to Secessionists of Clearfield
County ; but let tbem be comforted. They
have yet the Clearfield Republican. But even
that sheet may yet cower before public opin
ion and lower its tone. We will see.
The Rebels. The National Intelligencer
of the 22d inst. has advices, received by way
of Kentucky, to the effect that the rebels are
' preparing to attempt tho invasion of Maryland,
and that the commanders of the enemy's for'
es also intend to make an offensive move in
the Cheat Mountain pass in Virginia.
THE TRAITORS AND THEIR FRIENDS.
Some of the Clearfield friends of Jeff. Davis
occasionally charge this rebellion on the Re
publican party. But where is there a Repub
lican that has joined himself to the Rebels 7
None can be found. To be a Republican is to
be opposed to treason. When Republicans
enter the war it is on the side of their country.
But who are the authors and leaders of this
rebellion ? Why they are chiefly Breckinridge
Democrats Jeff. Davis, Cobb, Floyd, Yancey,
Benjamin, Mason, Hunter, Keitt, Rhett,&c
all of them Southern Breckinridge Democrats.
The treason was contrived by these men.
It might be appropriately called a rebellion of
the Southern Breckinridge Democracy. It is
true that other politicians, such as John Bell,
Alexander Stephens, and some others, are
now acting with the rebels ; yet they were
not the prime movers in the matter, but from
apparent necessity, or policy, they fell in
with the movement, after its originators had
got it started. The original leaders in this re
bellion were all, or nearly all, supporters of
Breckinridge. They secured the nomination
of Breckinridge and Lane, and in them bad
men that could be used to accomplish their
schemes of Disunion. As soon as the rebel
lion broke out Lane's son went over to the
rebels, and it was not long until the father fol
lowed. Breckinridge has ever since been
trying to draw Kentucky into Secession. He
seeks to embarrass the government and aid
the traitors, so far as he can, without commit
ting any overt act of treason. Everywhere ho
is regarded by loyal men as a traitor, and by
Secessionists as a friend. Senator Douglas,
in the speech we publish to-day, as well as in
many others, in alluding to Breckinridge,
styled him the Disunion candidate. Mr.
Douglas says further, and very truly, that "tho
Slavery question is a mere excuse, and the
election of Lincoln a mere pretext, that the
present secession movement is the result of
an enormous conspiracy formed more than a
year since by the leaders of the Southern Con
It is, however, just to say, that even in the
South there were some prominent men, like
Andrew Johnson of Tennessee and JoseDh
nolt ot Kentucky, supporting Breckinridge
and Lane who were not in the conspiracy ;
and these men in the spirit of the purest pa
triotism, and the noblest courage have come
to the rescue of their country in defiance of
the treason around them. They were Breck
inridge men, it is true, but they never endors
ed treason or traitors in their own party, or in
aoy other. They have shown themselves to
possess a statesmanship that can rise above all
party considerations, and that can comprehend
and provide for the welfare of their country
Such men deserve the thanks and the grati
tude of men of ail parties to all generations
There are a few prominent BreckinridgeDamo
crats in the North who are pursuing the same
patriotic course. Gen. Butler of Massachu
setts is one of them. He was one of the first
to fly to the aid of his Government, and thus
far he has not flinched In the performance o
bis duty. Daniel S. Dickinson of New
York a man whose name was put forward by
the Democrats of New York, at the Charles
ton convention, as a suitable candidate for the
Presidency is also on the side of his country.
The Douglas Democrats, like their great
leader, are almost to a man true to their coun
try. We do not profess to be an admirer of
Judge Douglas during the greater part of bis
political career, .out, wnatever opinions we
may entertain about his previous course, all
history wilt bear witness that, since treason
has raised its arm against our Government,
the course of J udge Douglas was in t he highest
degree noble and patriotic. Up to the break
mg out of hostilities he seemed to entertain
hopes of a peaceable adjustment of difficulties
but when it was clear that to avoid war was
impossible, and that the rebellion must be put
down by the sword, be took the noblest and
firmest attitude for his country. Ho went to
President Lincoln, whom he had been politi
cally opposing all his life, and assured him of
his support ; and from that time, to the day of
his death, he did not cease to expose the trai
tors, encourage his countrymen, and support
the Government in the most vigorous prosecu
tion of the War. Read bis speech, the last
one he ever made, published on another page
But the fact remains, that a large number of
the Breckinridge politicians even in the Free
States, have cast their moral influence on the
side of the traitors. And this is especially
true of Clearfield county. The patriotic sen
timents of Holt of Kentucky, find no response
in the hearts of ur Breckinridge leaders
Tbey will not publish such things. They pre
fer to print and praise the speeches of such
recreants as Vallandigham and Breckinridge.
Tbey get np large clubs for the circulation of
such treasonable papers as the Lay Book.
They have so imbued their followers with the
spirit of treason, that every word uttered in
favor of our Government or against the Reb
els, is offensive. At a Camp meeting, now
about closing, a minister alluded to the state
of the country be did not discuss the merits
of any party or any candidate he simply
made his appeal from a warm and honest heart
for bis beloved country, and against the trai
tors that would destroy her. And yet, this
appeal was highly offensive to the readers
of the Day-Book and Clearfield Republican.
What else should a minister of God say 7 Do
not theScriptures teach men to be true to their
Government 7 And is it a sin to remind tbem
of their duty 7 The minister who is afraid to
tell men their duty to their country, in a cri
sis like this, is unworthy to occupy the pulpit.
And the man who becomes offended at a min
ister for speaking in favor of his country, is
not in a fit state of mind to be profited at any
religious meeting. Such a man is a traitor at
heart. He shoujd quickly be off to the South
and take his proper place beneath the treason
able flag of Secession, for be is unfit to live
beneath the Stars and Stripes.
But little of interest baa taken Dlace in tha
army during the past week.
THE CARNIVAL OF TREASON.
Whoever shall write the history of this most
memorable era of our Republic, this ordeal of
Democratic institutions, will bear witness mai
the chief amontr our National trials and perils
was not weakness in council, incapacity in the
field, nor yet inadequacy of means, but auda
cious, truculent, all-pervading treason. Trea
son in court and camp treason in the Minis
ter's bureau and the General's stall treason
flying a commander's flag and neutralizing the
blockade it makes a show ot enforcing trea
son drawing thousands from the Federal Treas
ury for services as Embassador near a Europe
an throne treason goading a regiment to mu
tiny by inflaming its jealousies or stealing its
provisions treason paralyzing the efficiency
of a well-served battery by filling its shells
with sawdust treason to-day robbing a mint
and to-morrow surrendering an army. Such
are among the agencies and influences which
have darkened with disaster the outset of our
country's struggle for existence, and brighten
ed the visage or every hater oi uepuuiican
Liberty with the broadest grin of exultation,
even though he be a denizen or some iar-on
corner of the Old World.
We have no right to complain of this exulta
tion. We had no right to expect anything
better. The aristocracies and hierarchies of
Europe hate and fear our past conspicuous
example ot general comrort ana rapia growtn
under institutions which rested on the consent
of the People and left Religion absolutely free
from political control, dhey hadangutto
hate us, provided they had a right to exist.
But that men whom the Republic has lifted
from obscurity to eminence who have been
nourished on her bosom and pampered by her
partiality into consequence and lame that
those who have most reason to honor and love
the American Union should be most active
and malevolent among its would be destroyers
this is enough to make a patriot loathe man
Among those now conspicuously laboring to
divide and destrov the Nation are John Tyler,
ex-President of the United States, Jefferson
Davis, nowell Cobb, John B. Floyd, Jacob
Thompson, and others who have been Cabinet
Ministers, Francis W. Pickens, Kichard K..
Meade, John M. Daniel, D. M. Barringer, and
many others who have been Lmbassadors.with
scores of ex-Members ot Congress, ex-uov
ernors, ex-Colonels in the Array, &c, &c.
Of all who have received a Military education
at the expense of the Republic, a majority in
heart and a full third in act are to-day among
that Republic's deadly foes. Thousands who
have sworn fidelity to the Federal Constitution,
and been honored and enriched thereupon, are
to-day scheming and fighting to subvert that
Constitution and establish the Jeff. Davis in
struraent in its stead. While the poor and
the lowly, except that small portion ot them
who have been utterly deceived and perverted,
love and cherish the Union of our fathers and
the Government based thereon, the proud and
powerful are widely disaffected, and are intent

The whole ground on which our fabric of
Popular Government stands is mined by trea
son. Traitors meet and plot in our great
cities with scarcely an affectation ot conceal
ment. Women steeped in treason nit across
the boundary which separates Jeffdom from
the loyal States, carrying letters and ennflden
tial messages from skulking traitors to armed
rebels, with trunks full of cartridges and
percussion caps designed to slaughter tho de

in the loyal States are the veriest tools of trea

but not one of thorn has yet received the legal
punishment of bis crimes. It is deemed an
exhibition ot vigor to dismiss a detected trai
tor from the public service, and many have
been kept in office after it was notorious that
they were the willing accomplices of gigantic
We state these facts in no censorious spirit.
The popular mind has never till now been ripe
tor summary dealings with traitors. When
the New York Police undertook last Winter
to stop the transmission of arms to the already
seceded or revolted States, the movement was
not sustained by public opinion. Had Fresi
dent Lincoln ordered the first hundred traitor
spies (male or female) who were detected to
be tried by courts-martial and shot or bung,
there would have been a general shriek of
horror. But events hasten, opinion ripens,
and the guilty must beware. . There will be
hanging for treason on this side of the Potomac
ere long, and it is very likely to be wholesale.
We warn those who are affording "aid and
"comfort" to the enemy to desist utterly and
at once. Their own safety imperatively de
A Model Sultan. A letter from Constan
tinople in the "Journal de Francfort" says
"The new Sultan appears determined to never

tan; "have I not a wife whom I love? Let
me hear of no more such customs and such

that I can guarantee the correctness of it.'-
The Last Secession Dodoe. A despatch
from Washington of August 23d, says : "The
" Secessionists are spending their money free-
" ly to circulate arguments in favor of peace
throughout the free Mates. Rich Baltirao
reans are in the business. The N.Y.Day
" Book and News are supported by these men.
We suspected this was the latest dodge of
the Secessionists, from the course of the
Clearfield Republican. Last week it had

course, was in accordance with the Secession

not to give up tae remains of Col. James Cam

ruse to proclaim to the world that they have
been recognized by the authority with which
they are at war, and thus claim recognition
from the governments of the world.

been settled that the Government will hereaf

SUPPRESSING TREASONABLE PAPERS.
The U. S. Marshall at Philadelphia, has de
termined to suppress the sale of the New York
Daily News, the Day-Book, and other treason
able papers, in that city. Accordingly, on
Thursday last, the Marshall, his deputy, and a
number or policemen, awaited the arrival of
the New York boat at Walnut street wharf.
and took possession of the crate containing
the newspapers as soon as It was landed. The
seizure was conducted in a very quiet manner.
The various bundles were examined, and those
or the Daily news placed in a wagon, none of
the Day-Book or the Journal of Commerce be-
ng round in this lot ; the rest were carried on
by their . owners. Adams' Express was also
overhauled, and a number of copies of the
Daily JVeira were found; mostly directed to
Southern cities. The News is one of the most
treacherous and malignant of the papers in
the pay of the rebels at the North. It is
owned by-Ben Wood, the notorious policy
dealer, and the corrupt associate of Breckin
ridge, Vallindigham, and Burnett, and is a fit
exponent of their sentiments. - Its suppression
is a duty which has tor a long time been ur
gent, and the people are eager to see like ac
tion taken with regard to treasonable prints
all over the loyal States. The whole number
of copies seized was 1600.
On the 22d, the U. S. Marshall seized the
type and appurtenances ot the Christian Ob
server, of Philadelphia. It was formerly the
organ of the New School Presbyterian Church,
but was repudiated by that denomination on
account of its pro-slavery tendencies. The
seizure was made in 'consequence of the pecu
liar virulence of some articles in its last issue
in reterence to "tnis unnoiy war." itsf-'-
lielous" character had screened it for so
time from seizure ; but its utterances havebee.u
so violent as to attract attention, and its stop-"
page is the result. J v
Much excitement was created In Haverhill,
Mass., in regard to tho Essex County Democrat.
It has grossly misrepresented the sentiments
of the North in regard to the rebellion, and
has published articles in favor of secession.
Mr. A. L. Kimball, is the editor, nis friends,
on the evening ot the 21st, fearing some mis
chief, repaired to bis house armed; but the
indignant populace rushed into the house and
disarmed them of their pistols. The offending
editor was then taken out, tarred and feather
ed and mounted on a pole, after the manner
that some of the tories were served during the
Revolution. In front of his office he was
made to salute the National ensign with
cheers. After a second ride on a pole, he ex
pressed regret for his course against the U-
nion, after which he was made kneel down,
make a regular confession of his offences a
gainst the national cause, and swear that be
would never again .write against the free
States, or publish articles in favor of Seces
sion or rebellion. The office, however, was
The West Chester (Pa.) Jeffersoniun, was
destroyed on the night of the 10th, for de
nouncing the war as "a war to benefit the dig
gers' only," and pleading for the right of Se
cession. Few knew of the destruction of this
office until morning, having been done with
out noise or disturbance. All that is known
about the matter is, that six men were seen
enter the building and throw the type out of
the upper windows, and afterwards get into a
waggon and drive out of town. Another ac
count says, that it is believed by many of the
citizens that the damage done was by the edi
tors themselves, or at least with their consent,
for the purpose of raising sympathy in their
behalf. The reason for supposing this is, that
there are no good type among those thrown
into the street: those thrown out being only
such as were nearly worthless. Later Depu
ty U. S. Marshall, Jenkins and Schuyler, by
order of the U. S. Marshall, took possession
of the Jeffersonian newspaper building at West
Chester, with all itaxontents, on the afternoon
of the 23d, and awaTt further orders.
The Democratic Standard, at Concord, New
Hampshire, was destroyed on the 8th, by the
soldiers of the 1st regiment just returned, and
some citizens, for publishing such sentiments
as the following: "Our Southern papers are
filled with heart-sickening accounts of the
murders and robberies which individuals in
Old Abe's Mob are perpetrating cnthe South
ern people. Innocent women and children
are shot on their own door-steps, for wearing
what is called 'Secession bonnets.' No won
der the Northern people run when the honest
men of the South match toward them."
On the night ot the 19th, about 12 o'clock, a
large body of men proceeded to the office ot
the Easton (Pa.) Sentinel, and threw all the
printing material and furniture into the street,
and set fire to and burnt it, because of Its abuse
of the administrationand advocating "com
promise" with the traitors.
The crowd next went to the Easton Argus
office in the same place. After throwing a
part of the material into the street and pying
part of the type, a gentleman appeared at one
of the windows with the Stars and Stripes,
who assured the crowd that the editor would
make a satisfactory declaration within 24 hours,
when the crowd desisted in their operation of
destroying the remaining portion of the office.
Mr. Cole's German printing office, iu the
same place, came next in order. Here the
crowd was very large. Mr. Cole flung out
the Union banner; appeared at the window ;
declared Union sentiments, and that he was
for the Federal government "right or wrong."
Having come down so flatly he was permitted

Canton, Ohio, was entirely destroyed on the
night of the 23d, by the Volunteers of that
Such are the accounts given in onr exchan
ges. Several of the offices, it appears, were
destroyed byreturued Volunteers, who regard
ed the tone of the papers as treasonable in the
extreme. If this even was the case, mob law

a proper and lawful way of suppressing the
Arrest op Traitors. Pierce Butler was
arrested in Philadelphia, last week, on a
charge of aiding the traitors. This indicates
a purpose to treat a Rebel as a Rebel, whether
found North or South. While the Govern
ment is thus engaged, It might as well look to
the case of Senator Bright, of Indiana. A
man named T. B. Lincoln was recently arrest
ed in Cincinnati, on the charge of treason, as
being a Confederate spy. Among other let
ters found on him was the following ; '
