CLEAR FIKLD, PA., JAN 13. 1865.
"THE WAE IN. CLEAEPIELD.";
. , We to-day insert iu our columns an article,
in reply to one with the above heading, in
the lust Clearfield Republican.
' In connection with it we have to remark
flint, immediately after the Presidential
election, as our readers will doubtless re
member, we published an article advising
a more conciliatory course to be' pursued
iq the future. We had hoped that the or
gan of the Democracy would second our ef
forts in this lespect, but instead it declared
that its party ''has no concessions to make,"
an J that "the Democrat who offers to ac
'cept the proffered 'conciliation' is a basc
" born, soulless, cringing coiwird."
Notwithstanding this churlish response
to our offer,, u e, for weeks, have abstained
from replying to anything which the Re
piddican may have hail to say, until silence
"has ceased to be a virtue." For the fu
ture we shall reserve the privilege to ex
press ourselves in such a manner that we
think will give even the editor ot the Repub
lican nofurthtir reason to complain of the
."cowardly set of Abolition leaders" not
plainly enough declaring their opinions of,
and fixing the responsibility upon the per
sons justly'chargeable with being the cause
of bringing troops to our counti.
' . Tennessee Union Convention.
' The Union Convention which lias been in
session at Nashville, for several days, at its
session on Saturday the 14th, nominated W.
G. Brownlow, for Governor of Tennessee,
by acclamation. . The Parson being present,
a delegate asked him if he would accept,
whereupon he responded iu the following
'Geutlemen: I settle the controversy by
my assuring you that I will accept. I Ap
plause. 1 cannot be expected to do any
thing more, and certainly I ought to do no
iny sincere and unfeigned thanks' for the hon
or and distinction you have conferred on me.
I will not speak to you. gentlemen, but what
you will lack in speaking, if the people
should ratify the nomination, I wiil try to
make tip in deeds and acts, and God being
my help, if you will send up a legislature to
reorganize the militia'anl pas other neces
sary business, I will put an end to this in
fernal system of guerrilla fishting in the
State, in East. Middle and West Tennessee,
if we have to shootevery man concerned. "
A burst of loud and continued applause
followed this characteristic announcement.
The Convention then proceeded to nomi
nate a Legislature.
i A dispatch from Washington states that
Senator Henry S. Foote of the Rebel Con
gress has made an unsuccessful attempt to
escape, with his wife, from the Confedera
cy. Mr. Foote was taken back , to Rich
mond, Mrs. Foote being left at Oecoquan.
where she was sent for. by authority from
Washington, and brought to Willard's Hotel
under the escort ot secretary reward, i he
President, it is said, has threatened retalia
tory measures if Mr. Foote shall be subject
ed to punishment.
Several amendments hare been offered to
the enrollment bill inCongress. Every man.
and .every boy when he arrives at the age of
twenty, must hive himself enrolled at once
No one is freed from enrollment on account
of physical disability the surgeon is to de
cide as to fitness. A drafted minis held
responsible for his substitute ; if the substi
tute deserts, the original-drafted person is
called upon for-another, who he must furn
ish or enter the service himself.
' Gen. Hancock is now at Harrisburg and
on invitation addressed the Senate in refer
ence to the formation of his new corps. It
is to be composed of veterans who have
served at least two years and have been
honorably discharged. Recruits should re
portwithout delay, as it is rapidly filling
up. A government bounty of three hun
dred dollars will be paid to three years men.
Thuee army correspondents have escaped
from the rebels and: arrived at Nashville.
A. D. Richardson (army correspondent of
the Tribune,) who has been in rebel prisons
for eighteen month's, is one of them. He
telegraphed to the Tribune on F iday the
following expressive dispatch : "Out of the
jaws of death out of the gates of hell."
The Richmond Whig prints the testimo
ny from a Savannah Clergyman, General
Wayne, and General Beauregard, that the
reported atrocities charged upon Sherman's
army at Milledgeville are wholly unfounded.
The ladies of Milledgeville also write that
no such violence was even attempted.
. , General Grant,, on hearing that the citl
icna of Ohio were preparing a suitable tes
timonial for General Sherman, ordered the
'gum of $500 to bo subscribed for him to
ward ihi object." " ?
'THE "WAE IN CLEABFISLD."
' The last nuniher . of the "Clearfield Re
publican' contains a lengthy article on the
"unhaoov state of affairs" in our county.
The editor has done his best to bhield him
self and the leaders of the Copperhead fac
tion from tho load of opprobrium' which they
see is now gathering over their heads for
their agency in plunging the county into
trouble and bringing upon their political
friends a di.stros tenfold greater than any
occasioned by the operations of the draft.
The men who are guilty of involving their
fellow-citizens in affliction and disgrace, by
bad counsel, in order to obtain selfish and
partisan ends, should try to escape from the
responsibility when the day of retribution
comes, is not to be wondered at. This has
been the history of conspiracies the world
over. That Jeff Davis and his eo-adjutors'
at Richmond will frame excuses to cover up
the criminality of their treason after the re
bellion is crushed, every body expects,
- - . r .
hy theu should we be surprised, .11 tne
Copperhead leaders in this county who
have been privately and publicly at work
for the last six months, teiching doctrines,
and encouraging measures, which have
brought a military force into our midst
should now friink away from their homes or
impudently. protest their innocence before an
outraged public? Much as these gentlemen
uiav desire to be regarded as loyal citizens,
and eagerly as they may creep behind legal
technicalities to save themselves from mili
tary arrest, we do norintend that their false
hoods shall be taken as facts through our si
lence, or that public opinion shall be divert
ed from the real or:gina;crs of the "War in
Clearfield.'' There is a place where the re
sponsibility in this matter rests. And it is
due to the public and to posterity that the
men who have been instrumental in produc
ing ehil war, and visiting with sorrow and
shame the homes uf Clearfield should
not be forgotten. The edkor professes to
review and defend the puLlic acts of the de
mocracy in the county, carefully ignoring
the secret "oath-bound association," "dark
lantern gatherings," "democratic castles,"
iY.c. , which have been ' meeting in bani,
cabins, spring-houses and mill-lofts over the
county, and finally winds up with a trium
phant chuckle over the good luck of "cer
tain distinguished leaders" in Clearfield who
are out of the scrape and whose "'record"
none cau "tarnish." What gratification is
it to those men who are now in Fort Mifilin
and to their wives and children at home, to
know that these "distinguished leaders"
are strutting about their homes in security
their husbands and father
are pining away
in prison ? What a pleasure it must be to
the poor fellows who are hiding in the woods
these cold nights, afraid to go to sleep, lest
a soldier may awake them and hurry them
off to "head-quarters,", to be assured that
the "distinguished leaders" who preached
to them last August "not another man nor
another dollar"' are in no trouUe at all and
feeling quite ca-y. We trust they have all
seen the Republican and read the comforta
ble announcement, ' .
But let us glance briefly at the occurren
ces iu this county during the last six months
aud see whether these "distinguished lead
ers" are going to escape the clutches of
public opinion as readily as they imagine
they have military authority. Previous to
August last there was no special trouble oc
casioned by the calls of the Government for
troops. By offering bounties, volunteers
were readily obtained for the former drafts.
The same could have been done in the pres
ent instance as proven by the fact that two
Republican townships Guelich and Burn
side filled their quotas and had a surplus.
And iu seven other districts where Republican-leaders
moved in the matter, voluutecrs
were put in after the draft and the people
saved from arrest. We do not claim that
former responses to the call for troops sprung
f Wktti 'intr i 1'irnnftfl mriflvn; rr tta. - t-t
the Copperhead leaders. They had been
laboring all the 'time to defamj and belie tha
Government, and to spread sympathy with
the rebellion throughout their political
ranks. The Clearfield Republican weekly
teemeJ with falsehood about our military
successes and republished regularly the arti
cles of rebei journals prejudicial to our cause
until its hou'est readers, if they believed
it at ail, were led to think that Jeff D ivis
and his.government vere far more desirable
than that of the United States. Under
these circumstances the les shiewd of the
r arty would give unmistakable evideuce of
their preferences by cheering lustily for Jeff
Davis on the streets.. By this sort of man
agement the seeds of disaffection were pown
all over the county, and the minds of the
people prepared for revolt against the pro
per authorities when the right moment
came. In the estimation of (he "distin
guished leaders" that moment arrived when
the manifesto "To whom it may. concern"
appeared. Surely, thought they, the whole
county is as crazy about the nigger as we
are, and uow is the time to make a grand
demonstration of resistance under the form
of a protest. Preliminary to this "grand
demonstration," however, a primary meet
ing was held in Clearfield to arrange the pro
gramme. On the first evening of the meet
ing Bigler and Wallace did not attend. An
other was called the following evening. Af
ter the adjournment of the first meeting two
of the faithful were heard on theii way
home, complaining bitterly of the absence
of the 'two "distinguished loaders," and
swearing that if they did not "come up to j
the scratch" the next n:.ght they would leave :
the concern. The next nigl tcame and with .
it came the "Great Moguls." The result of ,
their deliberations that evening was pub- j
fished to the world in the form of a series
of resolutions. In those resolutions, as eve- j
ry one will recollect, after dealing outtreir
maledictions upon Mr. Lincoln, they pro-
ceeded solemnly to declare that he "has for
"felled all claim to our their confidence,
" respect and OBEDIENCE!" Was this
aiding and abetting J eft' Davis & Co? Had
an armed -rebel in Virginia got hold of the
Republican containing these resolutions,
what would have been his impressions about
the loyalty of t he people here ?
Now, certain "distinguished leaders" may
squirm and wriggle as they please to shift
the responsibility in this matter, but we put
it upon record, and shall hold them to it,
that the "War in Clearfield" commenced at
that time. Whoever was present ou that
occasion and voted for the resolutions in
question, must answer to the people of the
county for the disgrace and shame, the
bloodshed and suffering, that has already or
may yet occur. The whole course of the
Copperhead leaders from that day until the
troops came, took its cue from that action.
Let any men get the resolutions referred to
and hunt up the seeces.iou ordinances of
South Carolina and 3iississippi, and he will
find that they correspond in tone and spirit.
They both deny obe.dionce to the Govern
ment of the United States.
After this followed the great 13th of Au
gust meeting. It w5 the largest concourse
of people ever assembled in the county, and
from its sad results we may confidently pre
dict that the lik? wiil never be seen again.
"Bigler and Wallace," of course, did the
speaking. The Ex-Governor gave his con
sume: ts the time speech to which they had
listened perhaps a dozen times before, "lie
tared .them with a rehearsal of his mighty
efforts to sec. ire the Crittenden Compromise
expounded the Constitution so as to con
vince them that .Mr. Lincoln was the prince
of tyrants, and after appealing to their pas
sions and prejudices he reached the utter
ance that has been re-echoed at every Cop
perhead gathering iu the- county that was
the watch-word of the faction up to the
time that the military made their appear
ance among .us. Having demonstrated to
hi satisfaction that the War for the Union
wasuneonstitutioii-il, he boldiy declared that
he "would not contribute one man, nor one
il farthing to prosecute the tear for the un
lawful purposes set forth by Mr. Lincoln.'
for which a military commission could con
vict i:nd imprison hiui but we challenge
any intelligent man to consider the cireiim
stances uudor which he uttered this declara
tion and deny that he is responsible for the
bitter, ' disalleetod ajid disloyal sentiments
that his fellow-citizens carried home with
them that evening. He was there surroun
ded by over two thousand of his fellow-citizens
the most of whom had helped to ele
vate him to office who reeosrnized him as
their political leader who had con6dence in
his wisdom and expected from him such ad
vice as would best subserve their peace and
interests : and it was his dutj- to warn them
against taking any steps, which would bring
them in conflict with a power they could
not resist. We do not complain of any
thing he said alnjut the policy of the gov
ernment. This he had a right to do. But
when he presumes to set up his individual
opinions of the Constitutionality of any act
of the Executive, and makes that opinion
the ground upon which to refuse "men and
money ' for the support of his government,
we hesitate not to say that he oversteps the
bounds of good citizenship and verges close
ly on treason. Who is to be the judge of
the constitutionality of Mr. Lincoln's acts?
The Supreme Court or Mr. Bigler? Now,
had Mr. B. said to his friends at that time
all that he did about the Administration,
but advised them, for prudential reasons, to
go to their homes quietly and fill up their
quotas as the3- had done before,it is but com
plimentary to him to say that the weight of
his influence would have been such as to.
have insured a speed' filling up of the whole
quota, in such a manner that the rich meu
would have borne' the burdens of the poor.
But, as it was, he sent his friends home an
gry and disquieted. And in the strongholds
of the party throughout the count' no effort
was made to avoid the drafts Not only was
this the case, but the unfortunate position
which he took, in its influence on the minds
of others, has cost poor men of his own par
ty, nearly all they are worth to save them
selves from the consequences of their course.
We kuow of Democrats in the county who
have paid as high as $1,000 lor a substitute,
for one year, since the draft ; and in some
case.s, the amount paid by three or four in
dividuals to save themselves has been more
than would have been necessary to fill the
whole quota of the township to which they
belonged. This in itself is evidence that
there was a disposition on the part of the
people to do what was right, had they only
been rightly advised. . ."'
It is vain for those "distinguished lead
ers" and their organ to protest that the peo
ple would not have acted otherwise had it
not been for their counsel.- We hear too
many curses upon them from the innocent
men who now feel what it is to have war at
home, to be deceived. It is not remarkable
that tbey should try to create the . impres
sion A abroad, that 4h "cowardly abolition
leaders," as they call them, are to blame for
the whole of it. . Th fact give them the
lie in their teeth, aud they know it. This
attempt to creep out of the responsibility is
as cowardly as it is mean and base. It is
time the public should know the facts, and
know who are the true friends of the peo
ple in this emergency. The assertion has
been made in print and upon the stump that
the leaders of the Republican party have
urged the military occupation of the county.
Mr. Wallace in addressing a meeting at Cur
wensville on the night before the electiou,
when Lansberry was cheered,- hesitated not
to warn a "certain man in that place" -meaning
Gen. Patton of course "that there
were men upon his track who would have
vengeance upon him." How contemptible
does this wretched demagogue appear when
it is known and can be proven that while he
was making his speech, Gen. Patton was at
his home arranging with Democrats from
Jordan and Peun townships to fill up their
quotas. And let it be further known, that
after the draft had taken place, no man la
bored with more' assiduity to avert the dis
grace than did Gen. Patton. Four weeks
before the troops came, and immediately af
ter Butler's murder, a requisition was made
for troops to .enforce the draft, but by the
personal efforts of Gen. Patton they were
detained upon the assurance that if more
time was given our Democratic citizens
would use their efforts to get the drafted
men to report. That time was given, but
no concern was manifested by the "distin
guished leaders," and December came with
over three hundred men in the county bold
ly defying the laws. What could the Gov
ernment do under the circumstances? Must
the Provost Marshal proceed to make a sup
plementary draft ar:d thus call other men a
way who were willing to do their duty?
There was no other alternative but to bring
the troops and vindicate the law. And
when the troops came, the' received all
their information from Democrat-:. 2s ot a
single arrest has been made iu the county at
tho instance of. a Republican. Democrats
made the information on oath Democrats
pointed out the men furnished lists ot
members of .their secret organization gui
ded the troops, and were exclusively-instrumental
in procuring all the arrests that have
been made, save the capture of tho eighteen
deserters in Knox township. Some men. ar
rested at the instance of Democrats, have
been released through the intervention and
influence of Republicans, It will be seen,
therefore, that the Republicans are in ho
manner responsible either for the resistance
boon made by the troops sent here to quell
that resistance. All the distress and sorrow
that have been brought to the hearts and
homes of the people of the county, are just
ly chargeable upon the Democratic- leaders
in this town. They cannot shift the respon
sibility, and never again can they succeed in
deluding their followers as they have done;
What will be the result of the developments
now making in regard to them before a mil
itary commission, by members of their own
party, we do not know, but no doubt it will
yet iorni an interesting chapter in the histo
ry of the "War in Clearfield. "
"One of the charges alleged against citi
zens of certain sections of this county, and
mulct- which many have been arretted, and
are now in Fort Mifilin. is that of buying
and selling ammunition. So far as jtowder
is concerned we believe the whole thing can
be ex' Iained. Our forrests are well sup
plied with game. . . . We know it. was the
common talk as the hunting season approach
ed that they would lay in a good supply
while they had the chance, ".Vc. -Clearfield
In the whole course of his professional
career, was the astute Senator ever driven
to such a miserable subterfuge?. The secret
oath-bound association was only to. kill
"game," too, we suppose? The hundreds
of revolvers imported and distributed
throughout the county wore for the same
purpose! Dan Goodlan ler skedaddled be
cause the eighty pistols lie furnished to cit
izens of Brady township, were to kill deer !
John Holt left for Canada because lie swore
certain citizens of Graham township to
kill deer! Truly, you may say "the guilty
floe when no man pursues."
It won't do Billy. The evidence on the
files of the Provost Marshall's office evi
dence furnished by members of your own
party settles the question beyond dispute,
and with all your skill at special pleading
you will never be able to account for the fce
cret society, the pistols, and the powder, in
any other way, than that they were intend
ed to resist the draft. The facts have been
solemnly sworn to by more than forty of
your fellow Democrats, and when the 'prop
er time arrives, that evidence will be laid
before the public. Then it will be seen
what kind of "game" the "powder" was
intended to kill, and who are truly respon
sible fjr the troops being sent to Clearfield.
The innocent will he fully vindicated, and
the guilty exposed ail in due time.
The Butler-Porter controversy, in regard to
the failure of the Wilmington expedition. has
not,' as yet, terminated. Who is responsi
ble for the failure, we presume, will be in
vestigated and decided by the Committee
on the Conduct of the War,' as it has sum'
moned Gen. Grant and several other im
portant witnesses in the case.
A Washington despatch says that the
House has concurred in the Senate resolu
tion to terminate the redprooity treaty. : 3
The New Movement of Thomas.
The ncw movement of General Thomas,
misterioiisly alluded to for some days back
by Western correspondents, begins now lo
be understood. His main infantry force
has beeu cent. to Eastport, Miss., a little
town in the extreme north-western part of'
that State, aud situated on the Tennessee
river, which there tonus the boundary
between Mississippi and Alabama. Mos of
of these troops were conveyed down the
Cumlierland river, thence down the Ohio,
and thence up the Tennessee, a rather
roundabout course. Some of the cavalry
also were conveyed by this route, the rest
going over the country. Another force is
stationed at Alabama. This new position
eives rise to much speculation as to design,
now movements, &c. It is understood that
the army at Eastport is t be reinforced
by 12,Jn) men from Memphis, which will
augment the number of Thomas' command
to more than 50,'JUO bayonets. To that
veteran and victorious force, the States of
Alabama and Mississippi can opoose per
haps 25,000 men, defeated and desperate,
under a leader whose career is an unbroken
succession of disasters, and who is neither
trusted nor liked by his troops. All that
can be added to that strength will be the
slender force under Dk k Taylok, and
the rawest of raw militia and unwilling
conscripts who may be swept into the ranks
from the counties through which lloi'D
will continue his retreat. The po.-itior.
now held at Eastport and Florence will be
permanently held; serving equally as bases
of supply for the forces operating south, and
as frontier garrison-posts for Tennessee.
A correspondent states, that TlfoM as
contemplates if he has not already U: der
taken the enterprise a promenade a la
Shekman across .Alabama or Mississippi,
and may be both, and that eventually he
will not stop short of Mobile. Such a
march presumes that he shall cut loose
from all bases, anil seek for new ones on
the coast, as Shf.umax did. To co-operate
with such an advance, a strong force is re
ported to have already left Vicksl.urg, un
der General Dana. Following about ths
track of General Sherman's famous expe
dition a year ago. General Dana wiil move
on the Railroad to Meridian, destroying as
he goes the line which the rebels rebuilt
after Gen. Sherman. From that point he
is to make for Caha-vba. an important town
on the Alabama River. -two bundled .m l
sixteen miles above Mobile, twenty-two be
low Seima, and ninety-two below Montgom
ery. The possession of these threes towns
will ensure the control o! the navigation
of the Alabama river for almost its whole
length above Mobile, and will render ca-y
the capture of Columbus Georgia, t tic head
of navigation on the Chattahoochee. And
if the rivers and principal towns of Ontral
Alabama fall into our hands, tho State goes
with them, for it is not to be supposed that
Mobile can resist Thomas, should he march
thither, any more than Savannah resisted
Sherman. It is threatened still more
nearly by the advance of a force under G011
hon Grander, which, like that of Gen.
Dana, co-operates directly with the forces
under Gen. Thovi The three armies
aim, apparently, at nothing less tnan the
complete iocenpah'on and control of the States
of Alabama and Mississippi.
Slavery Eilled in Missouri.
The State Convention, says a dispatch,
dated , St. Lows. January 11, has passed
the following ordinance of emancipation Lv
a vote of sixty to four: "Be it ordained
by the people of the State of Missouri, in
Convention assembled, tb.tt herenftt-r, in
this State, there shall be neither slavery or
involuntary servitude, except in punish
ment of crime, whereof the party shall have
been duly convicted, and all held to service
or labor as slaves arc hereby declared five.
Governor Fletch-.-r issued his prnclania
