The great States of Pennsylvania, Ohio.
and Indiana have ;declared in thunder
tones against a hum iliatinN peace with
murderous traitors, and in favor of the
prosecution of the War, until its crowning
victory is achieved by the submission of
rebels to the of the laws. The
verdict. so significant on the threshhold of
a great National struggle, is in no respect
indecisive. Pennsylvania, with thirty
thousand brave sons just sent to the field,
held the enemy at ban en the home vote,
while her gallant soldiers have announced
in most emphatic language that the men
who libel their horoisin, hate them for
their victories, and rejoice at the miafor
tunes, shall not rule the fair land they
have sought to destroy. Sixteen loyal,
faithful members are returned to the:next
Congress, displacing four of the men who
ever voted alike to embarrass the govern
ment and its noble armies in its fearful
contest with traitors ; and a Union legisla
ture in both branches and a decided Union
majority on the popular vote, detertnine
beyond all eavil; i that the Keystone State
cannot be seduced or intimidated into su
icidal hostility to her brave sons in the
field and to the great Nationality of which
she is one of the brightest and proudest eir
-naments. Ohio has swept the Vallandig
hams, the Pendletons, the Longs and
their followers into dishonor by an utterly
overwhelming majority—one that consig,ns
the sympathizers of treason to open shame
and the authors - and followers of the Chi
- cago platform to perpetual obscurity.—

While Ohio and Indiana give overwhelm
ing majorities for the Union cause without
the aid of the army, Pennsylvania was
well nigh lost in this momentous struggle
by over confidence and the absence of or
ganization. - Had there been asystematic,
thorough organization of the entire State,
the Union majority onthehorne vote must
- have been from twenty to flirty thousand.
Philadelphia alone of the Union strong
holds was prepared for the / contest 'when
the day' of trial. Caine, and Mitt, was due
' mainly to her complete local' political
machinery and the consumate skill with
which it was directed.. Lancaster, Chester.
Dauphin, Lebanon, Union, Snyder, Hun--
tingdon, Blair, Somerset andiall'the strong
- Union counties of the West and North
west .were entirely without organization
such as a Presidential contest demands,
and the result was that three Congress
men, three Senators and half at score of
Assemblymen are lost on the home vote,
and perhaps hopelessly lost i and the State
is made to appear as faltering in.fidelityto
the Country in this crisis of our history.
True, one thousand would -have elected

sand: hat the popnlar verdict of the State
is tested by the : Congressional vote, and
the prestige of viCtory rededon organiza
tion and a fall vote. Sowiaely reasoned
our foes, and so they acted; They gave
their outside vote in Perks, Northampton,
Lehigh, Monroe, Pike, Schuylkill and
other counties, solely to determine
preliminary struggle of October in their
favor. They had organization—perfect,
systematic discipline, and that they have
not triumph is the fault of their cause, not
of their want of skill and ceaseless energy...
Let us learn from our foes. Our cause
is not lost—not even, failed, for Ohio and
Indiana have rescued it, and our brave
army has shielded us from dishonor:—
Benceforth let organization be the motto,
the purpose, the effort Of every Union
,man, and our verdict of November will be
no less decisive than that of other loyal
Mates. Let the Union men of every eke
ion district see at once that a complete
list of their voters is made out; that their
wants are supplied; ihafi documents are
on hand to meet every sophistryi of our
foes; that means are provided to have the
feeblectheinfirm andthe doubticig brought
to the polls, and Pennsylvania will be Car
vied for Lincoln by, fifty thousand., Let
.no Union man feelthat his district is small
and therefore iniiMportant, or that a few
votes will make no difference. It is by
losing a very few votes by supineness and
neglect in each of the three thousand elec
tion districts of the State that great ag
gregates are lost. \V hilt the State is in
no sense doubtful for Lincoln, half the
moral triumph will be lost if the overthrow
of the base propositions of Chicago and
tlieir supporters is not so decisive that
med of all shades of treachery will learn
that in fidelity only is them safety with
the People. •
Let org,auizatiou therefore be the wprk
of every loyal man at onec, and the Key
stone State will not blush when Inditum,
with a disfranchised soldiery ,rolls up thirty
thousand for the Union cause. The time
is short. Each golden moment lost is a
wrong to a threatened- government and to
a heroic. army. Forward loyal men!—the
hoer of triumph is at hand!

THE Age seems to be — relentless in its
vengeance upon a loyal people for main
tabling the integrity of their governmeiit
at thepolls. It announced on its bulletin
on Friday last that the Army of the Poto
mac had voted for the Democrats, and that
Gens. Meade and Warren hadbeenreliev- ,
ed. In its issue of Saturday it announced
disaster to our gallant armies at every
point—manufacturing wholesale false
hoods to libel our brave soldiers. By such
means it hoped, in its blind desperation, to
stagger loyal men and drive them into the
deadly embrace of its slimy treachery to a
common country - . While the Age thus
daily announces the successes of the re
bels, the defeats of the Union armies, to
prove the war a failure. the Richmond
Examiner is discussing the propriety of
deposing Jeff. Davis, for utter failure on
their side, and says:
" We write with the knowledge that our army
has been driven back from Chattannooga, and
that a triumphant enemy pretends to dictate terms
in the heart of Georgia—with the knowledge that
the enemy has driren ourforces up the. Utility and
are ravagi ng the fields upon which we rely for suh
sistunre—withthesound of a heavy, cannonade in
our ears, and the news that the enemy has carried
an outpost of the definses of Richmond."
Jett Davis has just been itinerating in
the cotton States to plead and beg the de
spairing rebels not to desert his sinking
cause, and the Montgomery 3fail prayed
that God might deliver them "tiont the
dispensation the past teaches us to antici
pate" from Davis's speeches and visits to
the army: Mr.' Stephens, the rebel Vice
President•, had just written a,letterpropos
ing a convention—anythingalmost to end
the war and restore the South to govern
ment., Still the Age, the sickly spar of
treason in the loyal Nerth. forgetful-of
the utter despair of its masters lathe land
of erimeOnsists from day to day that our
armies are-repeatinghnt "failure" and that
treason is triumphant in every hand. .It
may for a time deceive some of its readers
as to the utter defeat of the alders and
abettors of traitors at the polls. Will the
.Age just once tell the whole truth, and in
form its readers that Copperheadism has
lost Pennsylvania, Indiana, Ohio, Maine,
Vermont and every State that has voted
in 1864, and that it has lost with equal de
cisiveness at Atlanta, at Mobile,_ in the
Shenandoah and even lost " the out

the home vote the delegation stands 13 Union

stands 12 Union to 12 Democratic. But certain
ly. two and probaidyfirs.diatricts.will be changed
by the army vote. Ross leads Thayer in the sth
district less than 50 votes on the home teturn,
and the - army will reverse that by from 300 to
500; and Johnston ieads Barker less than 100 in
the 17th distritt, where thei army will give not
less than 500 Union majorities. Thus a gain of
three Union members of Congress -is assured be
yond the possibility of doubt—making the dele-
gation stand 15- UniOn to 9 Democratic. In ad
dition to this a full army vote many elect Ketchum
in the 12th district,. Koontz in the 16th and Ful
ler in the 21st. In each of these districts the
Democratic majority on the home return is from
500 to 900, and it is not itnpabable that any or
all Of them may be Union onthe full vote. If so
the delegation will stand 19 Union to 6 Demo
