AcciLEsr.On Monday evening last, Wil
liam Irvin, Jr., sou of Win. Irvin, Esq., of
Curwensville, met with an accident when he
was returning home from tne "ttusn Meeting"
on Addlenian's farm, with two of bis sisters
in a buggy. At Logan's Mill a wagoa which
preceded him turned aside, for the purpose of
Jetting bini pass, in doing which ke made too
short a turn, and upset the buggy, throwing
him and sisteu out with much violence. The
young mam was insensible and remained so
until he was conveyed home, and at last ac
counts was not much better. One of bis sis
tojfl, Mergarel, waa injured some, but to what
extent we have not learned ; it is to bo hoped
not seilously. Tho horse ran only a short dis-
but the buggy wns broken considerably.
A CARD. Whereas, in accordance with a
request from both houses of Congress, the
President of tho United States has appointed
the last Thursday of this month "as a day of
humiliation, prayer and fasting, for all the
people of the nation," to be observed, "in all
humanity, and with all religious solemnity j to
the end that the united prayer of the nation
may ascend to ibe Throne of Grace, and bring
down plentiful blessings on our country," the

HDEMocttACT is Maine. The Democratic
'lrty in Maine split upon the question of the
Sr"""De branch supporting the war and the
wer opposing it.- By the returns of the late

From the Bridgeport, Conn., Standard. '
To the Editor of the Standard : I regretted
my inability to respond to the call made upon
'me for a speech at the meeting on Monday
evening ; for I desired to address a few words
to my old political associates, the Democrats
of Connecticut. With your permission I now
present through your columns the substarce
of what I desired to say.
You will agree with me that our country is
at war. Whether we consider the Southern
States a foreign power or their people our own
fellow-citizens in a state of'rebellion, still our
country is at war with them. How is this war
to be brought to a close ? By one ol two
modes, either by a suppression of the rebellion
or by a treaty acknowledging the indepen
dence ot the Confederate States. Is there any
Democrat who would not rejoice to see the
armed resistance to tho Government suppress
ed, peace restored, and business resuming its
wonted channels ? Or, if there be any Demo
crat who thinks it impossible to suppress the
rebellion, still will he not stand by his own
section and enable it to obtain the best terms
M can on the final separation ? In whatever
aspect the Democrats of the North may look
at this subject, their duty and interests alike
require them to support their Government in
an -energetic prosecution of the war. How
else can the rebellion be suppressed ? Or, it
that be impracticable, how else can an honora
ble and advantageous treaty of peace be ob
tained. . But attempts are made to paralyze the Gov
eminent by the cry of peace, and to get up a
peace party under the name of Democracy I
Peace on what terms ? Are the leaders of
this movement in favor of peace on whatever
terms our rebel enemies may prescribe ? Are
they prepared to let the whiteslaves of "King
Cotton" tread upon their necks, and bo con
tent to live dishonored lives in the homes of
their brave ancestors ? Why do not these
men, while casting their peace flags to tho
breeze, announce the terms on which they pro
pose to make peace ? V by do they not tell us
what reason they luve to believe that peace
can be made on any terms, other than by cow
ardly submission to rampant rebellion? This
peace flag, if not the traitor's,, is the coward's
flag. Whatever it designs it is traitorous in
effect. It gives "aid and comfoit" to the
; Those who are attempting to aid the enemy
by this and other devices, call themselves
Democrats. I deny thi'ir right to tho name !
I have witnessed the mutations of parties, and
been a Democrat myself for more than fifty
years. There were no such Democrats in Jef
ferson's days. There were none such during
the war with Great Britain in 1312 to 1814.
The peace party then was the Federal Party,
which was so effectually disgraced by the
peace policy ot its leaders, that its members
ever alter found it necessary to rally under
other names. There were no such Democrats
in Jackson's day. "The Federal Union must
be preserved," was then the Democratic motto,
and "down with nullification and secession,"
was the Jackson battle cry. There was no
such Democracy during the Mexican war.
There is none such now in tho heads or the
hearts of true Democrats; in my own heart,
there is none and never was ; if there were, I
would tear it out.
The Democratic party has, for half a century,
wituessed the rise and fall of many other par
ties, always maintaining the honor of its name.
Its vital principle has been devotion to the
Constitution and the Union. But for the
wanton rebellion of the Cotton States, it would
now be the ruling party in Congress and the
country.- You call the Southern conspirators
our brothers. So was Cain Abel's brother.
Shall we stop and cry peace while the club of
the fratricide Is aimed at our heads, and his
bowie knife at our throats? Shill our unre
sisting blood cry from the ground for ven
geance against murderers worse than Cain
murderers who would kill a nation in the
persons of their brothers traitors not only to
their country but to the cause of liberty in all
time and throughout the world 7
Democrats ! No, they are no Democrats.
The shades of Jefferson and Jackson disown
them. They mistake their proper name, and
fheir true homes. They are white slaves of
King Cotton, and their true borne is in his
presence. Let them go to the Cotton States
and flaunt their peace flags in the presence of
their King. Let them get up a peace party
there, who are willing to live in peace under
our benign Constitution, and they will then
be responded to by all true Democrats of the
Some men in their zeal for party, seem to
forget that they have a country, and that the
President, to whatever party he may belong,
is the representative of that country. What
if you or I do not like some of the principles
of Mr. Lincoln, or approve of the means by
which he was elected Still, he is our coun
try's President, and to sustain our country in
its present conflict, we mu6t sustain him.
What, if in discharge of the tremendous re
sponsibilities which depends upon him, he
sometimes exercises doubtful powers or vio
lates tho letter of the law, shall we therefore
abandon the cause of our country by with
drawing from him the men and money neces
sary for its defence ?. Shall we go further, e
spouse the cause of the enemy and throw ev
ery possible obstruction in the way of our
own Government 1 If so, the traitor's doom
and the hangman's halter would be our just re
ward. Let us save our country first, and then
call its ruleis to account for any unnecessary
usurpation of power. It were madness in the
the crew of a sinking ship to deprive their
commander of the power to save it. It is
madness to quarrel about the Administration
of our Government until we make sure that we
shall have a Government to administer.
Does interest influence any man to "cry
peace, peice, when there is no peace 1" It
that interest be one of trade, it can only be
promoted by suppression of the rebellion. If
the armed resistance were put down in the
South, trade would at once resume its former
channels and the North would continue to
profit by selling its manufactures to the peo
ple of tho South. But should the rebellion
succeed, Northern men may bid-farewell for
ever to all profitable trade with the South. It
is one of the avowed ol jects of the rebel lea
ders to relieve themselves from all commer
cial dependence on the North, and to that end
they have already commenced to lay heavy
duties on Northern products and manufac
tures. To the end of reconciling their peo
ple to giving a preference to Great Britain
and France, or any other foreign power, they
inculcate upon them a deadly hatred of "Yan
kees" and of every thing Northern. Is it not
passing strange that men of Northern blood
are found to sympathize with those who have
thus not only struck a blow at their business,
but are daily heaping contumely and insult
upon them and the land which gave them
birth 7 Shame! Shame t
The subject expands beneath my pen, but I
have already said more than I intended.
P. S. Since the above was written, I have
met with an extract from a leading rebel paper
in Georgia, which commences as follows, viz :
"We claim to be the superiors of the North
ern men in every respect, and we aro ; but we
have got to prove it to their satisfaction be
fore we can expect peace." . . .
Yea. Northern men, you have got to be
whipped Into the admission that the South
erners are your "superiors io every respect.'
It is only when you make this admission that
you can have peace. Who so baae as ever to
make it on such terms ? Who so craven as to
raise the white flag of peace in response to
pretensions so insulting ? No true'Jacksoni
an Democrat, I am sure.
The Rise or the Rothscuilds. When
George III came to the throne there was a
little boy at Frankfort who did not dream of
ever having anything to do persoually, with
the sovereigns of Europe. He was in the
first stages of training for the Jewish priest
hood. His name was Meyer Ansalm Roths
child. For some reason oi other he was
placed in a counting house at Hanover, and
he soon discovered what he was fit for. He
began humbly as an exchange-broker, and
went on to the banker of Landgrave of Hesse,
whoso private fortune he saved by his shrewd
ness, when Napolean overran Germany, now
he left a large fortuue and commercial charac
ter of the highest order, and how his sons
settled in five gral cities of Europe, and
have bad mere authority over the war and
peace and the destinies of nations than the
Sovereigns themselves, the world pretty well
knows. Despotic tuonarchs must be depend
ant upon money lenders, unless they are free
from debt, and can command unlimited rev
enues for untold purposes which is never
true of despotic Sovereigns.
A Double Murder in Western Virginia.
A gentleman from Uavenswood, Jackson coun
ty, Va., informs the Wheeling Press that a
guerrilla party on last Friday, eight miles iu
the iuterior, shot a sergeant ot patroles named
Hawk, in his own door yard and a young man
by the name of Wood, in Hawk's employ. It
appears Hawk went to the front door and was
immediately fired upon, one ball penetrating
the heart and another the groin. Wood rush
ed to the door to see who had fired, when be
was shot iu three places; in the bowels, in the
right leg and right arm. Mr. Hawk's son, a
bout twelve years of age, went to his father,
and in the attempt to raise him was fired at
five times, the balls perforating his clothes.
The murderets then went into the house and
demanded what money there was, threatening
to kill Mrs. Hawk if she did not immediately
deliver it to them. They commenced break
ing open the bureau drawers and succeeded In
finding $135 in specie, which Mr. II. had laid
up. Mrs. Hawk was only able to identify one
of the devils, a noted secessionist by the name
of Carter.
Col. Richardson and Peaches. A letter
from a member of the Second regiment con
tains the following : Soon after the regiment
went into camp at their present post, near
Arlington, a messenger from a rank secession
ist asked of Colonel Richardson that a guard
be placed around a very fine peach orchard on
his place. This was done, and for several
days the peaches were allowed to ripen undis
turbed. Happening -there one day, the Col
onel picked from the ground half a dozen
peaches, when he was met by the owner, who,
in a ery pompons manner, said, "Pay me for
those peaches, sir." "Certainly," said the
Colonel; "how much shall I pay 7" "Fifty
cents," said the rebel. Handing him the
money, the Colonel turned to the guard and
said, "now go to your camp, boy a." "Hold
on there," saidSecesh ; "Col. Richardson sent
these men here." "To be sure he did," re
plied the Colonel, "and he now sends them
The wax to Do it. We like the way they
conduct the recruiting business down in South
ern Illinois. They call the people together in
mass meeting, able speakers make short, pa
triotic addresses, and ail who are ready and
willing to enlist for the war to put down the
rebellion against the Government and its laws,
are invited to sign their names. In this way
whole companies are sometimes enlisted in
one evening, and a regiment is made up almost
in no time. Why couldn't this plan be intro
duced in other States ? The people need stir
ring up. By calling public meetings and
having good speakers address them eloquent
ly and to the point, arousing them to a real
izing sense of their duties in this crisis, we
doubt not that the important work of enlist
ment more important at this moment than
ever before would be greatly expedited.

A CARD. We the undersigned democrats
of Morris township, having signed the call for
a meeting at Curwensville, on the od of Sep
tember 1SG1, wish to have it expressly under
stood that we did so, supposing the object of
the meeting was, to give an expression of its
disapprobation of certain resolutions passed
in Convention at St. Maty's, which resolutions
we consider to be undemocratic, encouraging
to Southern rebels, and opposed to the inter
ests of our country. We expected the meet
ing to be purely democratic, unmixed with
Republicanism, Abolitionism, Spiritualism, or
any other comglomerate isms of the day. We
believe it to be the duty of every good and
loyal citizen, to support, and uphold the gov
ernment, in its efforts to put down rebellion,
and maintain the glory and prosperity of this
great nation- We therefore pledge ourselves
to support the whole democratic ticket, pro
vided the Candidates do not embrace the prin
ciples, set forth in the St. Mary's resolutions.
Otherwise we will withhold our votes.
We desire the publication of this card in
both Clearfield papers. "J. D. Denning,

On the seventh of September, 1861, THE
twenty-first year of its existence; the THE DAI
LY TRIBUNE being some months older andTHE
SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE somewhat younger.
For more than twenty years, this journal has la
bored in what its conductors have felt to be the
cause of Humanity, Justice and Freedom, endeav
oring to meliorate the condition of the oppressed
and unfortunate, to honor and encourage useful
exertion in whatever sphere, and, to promote by
all means the moral, intellectual and material ad
vancement of our country. It has aimed to be
right rather than popular, and to espouse and
commend to-day the truth that others may not be
willing to accept till to-morrow. In pursuing
this course, mistakes have doubtless been made
and faults committed ; but, having in all things
incited our readers to think and judge for them
selves rather than adopt blindly our own or oth
ers' conclusions, we believe we may fairly claim
for this journal the credit of having qualified its
readers to detect and expose even its own errors.
To develop the minds of the young by the most
general, thorough and practical Education, and to
encourage and stimulate Productive Industry,
through free grants of Public Lands to actual set
tlersand cultivators, as also through the protec
tion of immature or peculiarly exposed branches
from too powerful foreign competition, are among
the aims to which this journal has adhered
through good and evil report, and which it stead
fastly commends to American patriotism and
As to the Civil War now devastating our coun
try, we hold it to have originated in a Rebellion
more wanton, wicked, inexcusable, then waa ev
er before known a Rebellion in the interest of
tne tew against the many a Rebellion designed
to raise higher the walls of caste and tighten the
chains of oppression. Having done all we could
without a surrender of vital principle to avoid
this War and witnessed the forbearance, meek
ness, and long-sufiering with which the Federal
Government sought to avert its horrors, we hold
it our clear duty, with that of every other citizen,
to stand by the nation and its fairly chosen ru
lers, and to second with all our energies their ef
forts to uphold the Union, the Constitution, and
the supremacy of the laws. And, though tho Re
bellion has become, through usurpation, deception,
terroism, and spoliation, fearfully strong, we be
lieve the American Republic far stronger, and
that the unanimous, earnest efforts of loyal hearts
and hands will insure its overthrow. But on all
questions affecting the objects, the scope, and du
ratitril of this most extraordinary contest, we de
fer to those whom the American People have
clothed with authority, holding unity of purpose
and of action indispensable in so grave an emer
gency. In a crisis like the present, "our columns must
be largely engrossed with the current history of
the War for the Union, and with elucidations of
its more striking incidents. We shall not, how
ever, remit that attention to Literature, to For
eign Affairs, to Agricultural Progress, to Crops,
Markets. Ac. which has already, we trust, won for
IRE TRIBUNE an honorable position among its
cotemporaries. Our main object is and shall be
to produce a comprehensive newspaper, from
which a careful reader may glean a vivid and
faithful history of the times, not merely in the do
main of Action but in that of Opinion also. As
our facilities for acquiring information increase
with years, we trust that an improvement in the
contents ot our journal is perceptible, and that,
in the variety and fulness of intelligence afford
ed, we may still hope to make each day a critio
on the last." In this hope, we solicit a continu
ance of the generous measure of patronage hith
erto accorded to our journal.
