THE WAS NEWS.
Advance and Brilliant Success of General
On Saturday tbe 7th, Gen. Meade made an
advance, and drove the rebels across the liap
pahannock. Gen. French's column advanced
to Kelly's .Ford, where a portion ol tho 3d
corps crossed and surprised the enemy, who
was also occupying a portion of our old rifle
pits on this side of the river. After a severe
fight our men succeeded in capturing nearly
the whole of the rebel force, number between
600 and GOO. Meanwhile Sedwick's column
approached Rappahannock Station, where the
rebels were in considerable force and occupy
ing the works erected by our forces. A heavy
artillery fire was opened by the rebels from
both sides of the river. Our batteries replied
vigorously, anl under cover of their fire, a
charge was made by several of our regiments
who succeeded in carrying tbe rebel works.
In these several engagements the rebel loss,
in killed and wounded, was heavy, besides
1,846 prisoners. Our loss killed and wounded
is between 750 and 80(1. This movement was
a brilliant success, and it is presumed that
Gen. Meade will follow it up with quick and
vigorous blows and drive Lee's atuiy out of
Virginia, and capture Richmond.
From the Southwest we have accounts of
several small engagements. A fight occured
at Colliersville, Alabama, in which the rebels
were defeated with a heavy loss ; onr loss was
but small. The fight at Lookout Mountain
was a brilliant aflair our men charging up the
steep bill ia the face of a heavy fire and car
rying the rebel works at the point of the bay
onet. The loss was heavy on both sides.
Burnside bas possession of tbe whole of East
Tennessee, but several of his advanced posi
tions have been assailed and carried by tbe
icbels according to late reports. This ceeds
The bombardment of Fort Snmter, Fort
Johnson and other Rebel Forts was in pro
gress at latest advices, but with what success
is not known. The late Richmond papers,
however, say that it was terrific ; and Federal
accounts represent it as effective and damaging
to the rebel works. We hope soon to hear of
the fall of this rebel stronghold.
CB.UELTY TO PBISONERS.
If the half we hear ia regard to the starva
tion of the Federal prisoners in the South be
true, it is about time, says the Pittsburg
Gazette, that tho Government was looking in
to it, and resorting to some means of retalia
tion, iu case these barbarities cannot other
wise be arrested. It cannot afiord to allow
our soldiers to suffer in this way without re
senting it. If the apology be want of food,
the Rebels ought, as an act of mere humani
ty, to release the men they bold, on their pa
role. That they should insist on detaining
them under such circumstances, is cruelty be
fore unheard of, but only another evidence of
the intense and bitter malignity, and tbe dev
lish spirit that have alike initiated this wan
ton and wicked rebellion, and characterized
it throughout. If anythiug could have soften
ed these hell hounds, it would have been the
uniform, but, as we think, ill judged clemen
cy and even tenderness of the President, in
his dealings with meu who are so utterly bar
barized by slavery, as to have scarcely a hu
man instinct left. lie ought to have learned
by this time that there is but one way of
reaching them, and that is through their fears,
by making a few terrible examples, which
shall teach them that we are as dreadfully in
earnest as. themselves. Tenderness to these
tigers is cruelty to the innocent. Nobody
will ever know how many loyal citizens have
fallen by the hands of the bloody wretches
who have been allowed to prowl at large over
the Border States, after committing atrocities
that should have consigned them at once to
the gallows. The blood of many a helpless
family is upon the bands of the unpunished
guerrillas, who have been allowed to loiter in
tho rear of our armies, and dismissed on oaths
of allegiance, and promises of good behavior,
which were no sooner made than violated.
Tue insurrection in the Dominican republic
grows more and more formidable every day.
It will bo recollected that the Spanish portion
of the Island of Ilayti, mostly inhabited by
mulattoes, bad long been free under the title
o f the republic of S;in Domingo. A year or
two ago, however, their President, Santana,
betrayed them into the bands of the Span
iards, who pretended "to resume authority by
the wish of the people. The latter soon show-
d tho falsity of this statement by rising a
gainst their oppressors, and have now driven
them from Santiago to Port au Platte, defeat
ing them with great slaughter on Ihe retreat,
and penning up the survivors in the fortress
at Port au Platte. Before leaving Santiago,
the Spauiards burnt the town, and Port au
Platte has teen pillaged by both the contend
ing parties. Morchants and foreign residents
are leaving tho island. Full $53000,000 worth
of property bas been destroyed. ,.

PARTIES WHAT AHE THEY !
At present there are but two parties in this
country the one sustaining the constituted
authorities of the National Government, and
the other condemning their every act. The
Union War party is determined to uphold our
Republican institntions and defend them at all
hazards against all domestic and foreign foes,
aDd therefore is the true National party, the
other is the "Peace" party, which is williug
to give up tbe unity of the States to the de
mands of those in Rebellion against the Gov
ernment, or who favor a nominal reconcilia
tion of the several antagonistic parts so as to
bring about a cessation of hostilities for the
present, but which will, in the future, be like
ly to bieak out anew in a more fearful and
desperate war than that in which we are now
These parties are not imaginary they are
a reality. They have grown out of the exist
ing unhappy state of affairs in our country,
and are the creature of the opinions and de
sires of those who a.dhere to the one or the
other. For instance, tbe Vallandigham and
Woodward leaders have openly opposed the
war and clamored loudly for peace "on any
terms," (which is equivalent to disunion,)
and hence represent a party whose objects are
transparent and comprehensible. The Union
party sustains the Administralion in its every
effort to crush out the rebellion, arM is op
posed to any cessation of hostilities until the
rebels show a disposition to return to their al
legiance by offering to lay down their arms,
which constitutes it a distinctive party, and is
one that is demanded by the necessity of trans
piring ' events. The former, the so-called
"Democratic" party, we deem dishonest in
ils pretentions ; for whilst it professes to be
in favor of the Government and tlio war, it ex
ert all its influence to bring the Administra
tion into disrepute it endeavors to creaie a.
distrust in our National currency it discour
ages the increase of our armies, and dispara
ges our victories over the enemies of the
couutry all of which, in our opinion, results
in encouraging the rebels and prolonging the
war hence, their avowal that they are favor
able to the war and desire its speedy and
honorable termination, is too inconsistent to
deceive intelligent and loyal men. On the oth
er hand, (hose who have full confiduuee in our
free institutions, and who are ready to uphold
them by their influence and all the meaus that
they can command, are the sincere friends of
the Union and the Government, and comprise
the true and only National parly that now ex
ists in this country. This latter purty encour
ages our armies in the field, and sustains that
policy, by word and action, which iscaiculted
to bring about an honorable and permanent
peace whilst its opponents are playing the
political hypocrite in pretending to favor the
interests of the Union, when, in reality, their
actions and votes show that they sympathise
with the rebels.
Reader, to which of the two parties do you
adhere J To that which has for its object the
preservation of the integrity of the Union by
every justifiable means consistent with mod
ern warfare ? Or to that which is willing to
abandon the cause of the Union for a Southern
Confederacy in order to procure peace on any
terms 1 The first is the policy of tho Union
War parly, anil the other the intent of the so
called "Democratic" Peace party ! The par
ties and the principles upon which they are
based, are before yon. We have endeavored
to present them in a clear and concise manner,
and we ask you now to decide in favor of that
which accords with your sentiments as a true
patriot and a loyal man.
'Cold Comfort. A few of our intensely
"loyal" citizens, as it fearing that a demon
stration alike cieditable to our town and its
guest would be gotten np, in whicL all par
ties could unite, concluded to serenade Gen.
Steadman on their own hook no doubt ex
pecting to hear him denounce Democrats gen
erally and "Copperheads" particularly. Ac
cordingly the fife and drums were called into
requisition, and the vast crowd, embracing at
least a baker's dozen, repaired to the resi
dence of Judge Barrett and called for the
General, who sion made his appearance. But
instead of saying anything flattering to the
disciples of Abolitionism, he delivered a short
speech full of good sense, and just such a
speech as a true Union soldier ought ta
make." Clearfield Republican.
The foregoing from the last issue of the
Copperhead organ in this place, is about the
pettiest piece of meanness that we have seen
for a long time, and is an open insult to a
brave soldier, and to the intelligence of the
citizens of our town. It is well known that
the attendance at the serenade to Gen. Stead
man was respectable both as to numbers and
the character of the persons who took part in
it embracing prominent citizens of both par
ties. We cannot conceive how the editors of
the Copperhead organ could reduce the num
ber present, as they intimate, to a ''baker's
dozon," unless they immagined that the little
knot of "snaiks" on tho opposite side of the
street, made up the entire attendance. And
if the "few intensely 'loyal' citizens," sneer
ingly referred to by tho editois of tho Repub
lican, bad, like tho latter and their Iriends,
hesitated about getting up a "demonstration"
untiV they could ascertain what Gen. Stead
man might say or not siy, they could truth
fully be charged with attempting to make a
partisan affair of the serenade, instead of a
complimeut to a hero.
Max Killed.t-A railroad accident occur
ed in the "Narrows," between Lewistown and
Mifflin, on Thursday last, by which Dr. S. S.
Commings, of the former place, was instantly
killed. He had driven down the Pike to a
point below the dam, crossed the river in a
skiff and was walking down the track to visit
a patient, when hewmet a Westward bound
freight train. He stepped from tho track of
the freight train and was standing on tbe oth
er track, lookiug at tie train passing, when
the Fast Mail Train Eastward came dashing
along on the. track on which he was tho en
gine striking him, fracturing his skull, aud
instantly killing hiui.
In the course of a thrilling eloquent speech
at Cooper Institute, New York city, on Thurs
day evening, Oct. 29, Hon. Schuyler Colfax
made the following allusion to our noblo Pres
ident. It will elicit a cordial responce from
every truly patriotic heart :
"He rejoiced that we had such a President
as we have loud cheers as Abraham Lin
coln. The Roman Senate voted thanks to
Varro, because in the darkest hours be had
never despaired of the Republic. And future
generations will record their thanks to Abraham
Lincoln, who in the dark days of the Republic
a year ago, when we had days without sun
shine and nights without a star, quailed not
and did not despair of the Republic. Cheers
It there is an honest-hearted man who lives iu
this country, that man is "Abraham Lincoln.
Renewed cheering. And though I some
times differ with the Administration, yet with
out regard to'what Generals they put up or
down, I am or the President and the Admin
stration unconditionally to the end."
lion. Samuel Galloway, of Ohio, who ad
dressed an enthusiastic Union meeting in
Monument Square, Baltimore, on Wednesday
evening Oct. 28th, said :
"The President told him (hat morning he
would send a letter to the meeting, but on
calling lor it per agreement, the President
said he could not find time to write one that
would do justice to his feelings. Two years
ago' he said, 'I passed through Baltimore clan
destinely, and uow they invite ma to their
meetings ? How can I express my feelings ?
You toil them anything you wish for me.
Tell them I am with them in heart and sym
pathy in the great cause, of unconditional e
mancipation.' " Applause.
Never was a truer remark : the "more we
know or nee of Abraham Lincoln, the more we
think of - him." Ex-Governor Yates, of Illi
nois, who has bad better opportunities than
most men for forming an opinion of him, in a
late speech observed, "no man is purer in his
integrity than Abraham Lincoln, and at the
same time for broad Statesmanship he has not
his equal on tho Ameiican continent."' In
the course'of the s.ame.speech, Gov. Yates said
he had found some I ault with Mr. Lincoln : he
seemed too slow for him ; and yet, after all,
he had discovered tiiat Mr. L. "could not
move faster than God and Providence permit
ted. If we had triumphed at the first of tho
conflict, the Unioi would have been restored
with s!aery ; and when he telegraphed to Mr.
Liucon his fiery dispatch for confiscation and
and emancipation, Old Abe telegraphed hack:
Dick, hold still and see tho salvation of
God !' "
Gen. Daniel E. Sickels a lite-long Demo
crat as well as a brave and accomplished sol
dier delivered a speech in New York city on
Saturday evening, October 31st, and thus re
fered to the subject of this notice.
"'How shall we restore the list sovereignty
of the Union ? How shall we undo the foul
wrong of rebellion ? There are not a few
who have quailed before the magnitude of the
task. Of these, thank Heaven, the President
is not one. He whom the .Lu.den most bent
has never faltered in heart or purpose. He
is sustained, as is just, by the great mass' of
the nation, by the- potential voice of the Press,
and by the armies and fleet ol the Union.
Grappling with administrative questions
more difficult and delicate than ever before
tried the sagacity and courage of our states
men, he has so borne himseli that every loyal
heart acknowledges this candor, ability and
tact which signalize the character of our First
No man in the United States enjoys to so
large an extent the confidence, ihe respect and
admiration ot the people, as does Abraham
Lincoln. He has won this regard not merely
by his brilliant talents and dashing action, but
by real ability, solid qualities of mind and an
inflexible purpose to do right.
We cordially agree with the Cleveland
Leader, when it siys, "what a tower ol
strength is such a character as thisat the helm
of State, in a civil commotion so formidable
and terrible as that inaugurated and prosecu
ted by this rebellion. How dark, how fearful
aud distressing would be our condition, were
the Executive one in whosj integrity nd
sincerity implicit confidence could not be re
posed. Who can doubt that President Lin
has been specially raised tip for this great cri
sis, as a providential instrumentality for good
to our people and nation. Invigorated by
this belief, all true men should stand tirm and
work on, co-operating with the President in
measures projected for the defeat of the in
surgents, and the restoration of the authority
of the Government over all tbe States."
THE VETERANS WILL KE-ENLIST.
It was prudent to make such provision be
forehand, as the Government has done by
the methods announced in the President's re
cent proclamation, to keep up the army when
the term of the men now in the service shall
expire next summer and fall, if tho work of
final subjugation of tbe rebellion shall not
have been accomplished sooner. But still,
there may bo great dependence placed in the
veteran troops retaining their places. Indeed,
having fallen into the habitudes of a military
life, they will bardly desire more than a thirty
days' furlough, io visit their homes and
frieuds. . Already we have some evidence that
this will be so. For instance, an Ohio paper
tells us that tho soldiers of the Twenty-third
Ohio have re-enlisted in a body. The veter
ans number lour hundred men, and two hun
dred recruits received in Western Virginia
refugees from the South have also enlisted
for three more years or tho war making a to
tal of six hundred men ia one regiment. The
major portion of the Twelfth Ohio infantry
have signified their intention to do likewise.
Mr. Justice Woodward and Mr. Justice
Lowrie, it is hinted, intend to resign their
seats upon the Supreme bench because the
members of the bar so unanimously condemn
ed them at the late election, and, though
such a course would be highly gratifying to
tho great mass of honest men, yet we must
say that we cousider these gentlemen bound
by every tie of gratitude to Jeff. Davis 8c Co.
to hold on to their office as long as possible.
Their decisions have helped them vastly
heretofore, and there is no knowing when an
other opportunity may offer.

THE ILLINOIS ELECTION.
The Returns lrom 28 counties in Illinois
show, at f he unimportant town and county e
lections held on the 3d November, a Union
gain of more than 15,000. Even in "Egypt"
there is a gleam of light; a Cairo dispatch
says, "The Unionist have carried that Heaven
abandoned corner of the State, Egypt."
Such news Is almost too good to be true.
There are 100 counties iu tho State, and if
the vote is in proportion to I hat given above,
the Union gains will reach near 40,000. Tru
ly, copperheadism fs on the wane.
The returns from Massachusetts show a
largely increased Union majority. The vote
in 30'.) towns is Andrew, Union, 07,917 ; Paine,
Copper, 23,101 ; Andrew's majority, 39.813.
The remaining towns will increase tho Union
vote several thousand. Andrew's gain in ma
jority is over 10,000, so tar. The Representa

and 4 to hear from. Massachusetts is true to
NEW JERSEY ELECTION.
An election took place in New Jersey, last
week, for county officers, and although there
are large Union gains in many ol the districts

as the Copperhead phalanx. .
This State gives from 15,000 to 20,000 Li

Copperheads howl wonderfully about Govern

well understood to create any sensation, as
this cry bas become very common of late.
This State is not behind her bisters in de
votion to the Union. She elects Stephen

a majority of about 12,000, a gain of 6,000

ALLEGED TREASONABLE SWINDLING IN
THE NEW YO&K CUSTOM HOUSH.
Accounts are published of the discovery of
an organized system of supplying the rebels
with munitions of war and other necessaries,
throng!) the port of New York. It is said that
a Deputy Marshal, and perhaps other oflicials
in the Custom House, were in collusion with
certain merchants who have been carrying on
these operations. Bonds are exacted from
shippers, requiring tlit-iu to deliver their car
goes at other pot ts than those which are block-
aded by our fleet, and they are compelled to
give vouchers showing that the goo Is have
not been delivered at rebel ports. It is sta
ted that in cancelling these bonds certain of
ficials in the New York Custom House knew
that the goods had been irl'liveted i:i rebel
ports and that they were contraband of war.
Of course the delinquent oliiciaU must have
been well paid lor ttieir treasonable swindling.
We hope the matter will be sifted to the bot
tom and that, if possible, all the conspirators
will be brought to justice at once. There is
too much disposition i'i New York to tn-at
crime lightly; but the Government owes it to
the people of the nation to see that such glir
ing attempts to aid and prolong the -rebellion
are puuished with tho utmost sternness-

The re le Is are giving up all their luxuries
and enjoyments one by one, because they can
not afford to pay lor them. Even 'gambling,
which is an institution in Virginia, bas re
ceived a death blow for the present. The la
ro banks in tho rebel capital, thirty in num
bcr, must have had a run of luck, for they
swallowed up large daily sums, and the 11 u
quirei says they kept up the enormous high
price of provisions by spending a thousand
dollars lor each day's marketing from each
establishment. This was Confederate money,
gentle reader, and therefore not more than
what a first class gaming house always pays ;
but the Legislature of Virginia has ordered
thirty-nine lashes, to be well l.iid on at the
public whipping post, for gambling, and the
result is, that they have left Richmond, and
will probably be compelled to leave the St a to
