Orrstown cannot be - called &limns either
in history or in song. She was not born
great, neither has she had greatness imposed
upon her, nor yet has she forgcd grptness
out of stubborn eircums:tarice. by the mighty
power of her own inherent energy. Never
theless, OrrstoWti is not without a history ;
a history 'tis true which the envy and un
kindness 6f- other toins,possessing far less
merit than herself, have always labored to
disparage and obscure., , but which the honest
-journalist, as ,a faithful chronicler of events
"just as-he finds them," dare net ignore or
despise. • , ' •
Years ago, when the rest of mankind in
the bigotry and blindness of their hearts and
eyes, and with a pigheadedness unparalleled,
persisted in reading the signs Of the times
forward and declaring that the world was
progressiVe, Orrstown, the only luminous
spot amid the nebulous obscurity, with pro
phetie perspicacity and clearness, main ,
tabled that history, must be read backward
and that things were not what they seemed.
'When Orrstown annou c oced to the world

Copperheads fear this negro equality. - Is
it really true that they apprehend that the
negro will Soon equal and 'outstrip them in
the thousand avenues of industry and honor
if he be icermitted to startin the races. In
_spite Of their' declarations to the contrary,
they must certainly believe that the: negro
is,superior, either intellectually-or other
wise, to themselves„ and that the chains of

Let us note a singular -fact in Natural --
history which,.strange to 'say, has thus far .
escaped the industry and genius of both
,Agassiz and -Culver. A class a beings
:closely resembling man in their,general ap
'pearance has been discovered in the= North-.
ern States within the last year, and in some,
localities quite abundantly., Scientifically
they may be defined thus :—Genus, head,
Species, copper. Some curious facts, have
already hen developed in their character
and doubtless many '-others will be discov
ered from time to time. For example they
ure fLiund t 6 be most numerous in localities
where there are the fewest school houses.
Orrstown is full of, them. The ,sight of a
negro -affects them in- a most marvellous
manner, sometimes throwing them into con
vulsions, always causing them to rant and
rave and-distort their persons in a most
'frantic manner. Many other interesting
facts might be stated with regard to this
singular class of beings, but we have not
space to relate them now. Men learned in
the science of Polities say that on the 13th
of October next, a fearful and overwlichnn
ing destruction is going to come upon this,
race of beings.
THE PROGRESS OF TILE WAR.
We give on the fkt page of to-day's
paper a" Map clearly exhibiting the_ vast
achievements of the Union arms in the war
for the preservation of the -government.—
When treason culminated in causeless,wick
ed -war, it held every Southern State but
Delaware firmly in its grasp. Traitors—all
Democrats of. cour:tej--were in the Execu
tive chairs of all the Southern States, in
eluding Kentucky, Tennessee, Misouri and
Virginia, and they forced, iu sem4 irregular
way, an ordinance of secession through ei
ther the. legislatures or packed conventions.
Every State on the pin black or shaded
lines were at that time within the power
and at - the mercy - of traitors, and had to be
wrested by bloody battles from their fatal
Thus htarted this War again'st the noblest
and best government of the world. Two
years'and a half of:conflict have eritAned
our history„ and have fallen mar
tyrs to the cause of freedom--murdered, by
the lust of untailY ambition. But they
have not fallen jn vain, nor with dishonor.
For eighteen months the varying fortunes of
the struggle often chilled'the hopes of loyal
hearts, and gave renewed confidence to' the
foes of the Republic ; but t6-day every pa
triot can point with .pride to the substantial
achievements gained by the Old Flag.—
Western Virginia is rescued, redeemed and
comes as a new star in the gala of States.
Kentucky has been restored entirely to the
folds of the Union, and he faithful People
have just voted by 50,000 majority against
treason. -Missouri; after *messing bloody,'
struggles on her soil, is attkst safe from the
fatal tread of the insurgents._ Teunsssee
rejoices that the "pride . of the Tyrant is
breketi;•and Ihat - her people are all again
free. Two-thirds of Arkansas, and nearly all
of Miisissiiipi and Louisiana, with all their
capitols, are tinder the stars and stripes—
rescued by thedauntless herobim 'of our
