UNION MYRF- 1 OF PENNftLVANIA ! but
twelve days remain—to prepare for the
great National struggle with those 'who
pronounce the War a "failure," and' de
mand that our victorious armies should
be arested to give a "cessation of hostil
ities" to exhausted traitors. The time is
short. the moments golden, the issue vital
—fraught indeed with the destiny of the
With such a cause tibutrality is impos
sible, indifference criminal. With our
;gallant annies`victorions on almost every
field; with treason exhausted in its re
sources,broken in its credit,its despairing
armies decimated . by desertion, and field
after field, and State after Statesurren
dered to the heroic armies of the Union.
.the great work of preserving our govern
ment now and for all time is well nigh
accomplished. " They have robbed the
cradle and the grave" says the invincible
Grant, and their last hope is the success of
the Peace candidate at the next election!,
Loyal men! ponder well the significant
language of your great chieftain.- You,
who have given your sons and brothers
' to vindicate the integrity of the govern
ment against the murderous assaults of
traitors; who have given freely - of your
treasures, and mourned the bereavements
with which you have . been shadowed by
a wanton war, turn not now• upon the faith
ful-warriors you have sent to the front
and cloud their crimsoned fields and their
wounds with • shame, and the grave es-of
their martyred comrades with dishonor.
* Their sacred sacrifices are well nigh ful
filled; their mission about to be completed
—not by a humiliating surrender to our
barbarous foes, but by the crowning tri
umph of the Union - armies and the utter
overthrOw of treason.
From the Valley we hear the fresh notes
of victory, giving ua promise of safety to
our long distracted and plundered borders,
and weaving another chaplet in the wreath
of honored and enduring Peace.' The ever
triumphant-Sheridan has again discomfited
our vandal foes, and sent them "whirling"
---- back, upon the land they have desolated
by crime. - Shall these triumphs be voted
"failures?"—shall these victories be wasted
by resting over the graves of our noble
sons sacrificed to pr'eserve oui free insti-
toles, and conceding a "cessation of
tildes?" Every dictate of patriotism, of
''-ihumartity, of honor, and of safety foibids
When traitors yield obedience to the
laws—the same-to which we yieldwilling
obedience—the war will be etald, and
ended with honorsto our living and to our
dead, and with honor to the Republic.
• Umoti Mix! Let there be a rally along
' the leheie Pennsylvania has declar
' ed for the Union by over eleven thousand;
' bit it is due to the gallant army that has
given tuf victory and preserved our gov
ernment, that loyal men at home 8111111
_ protect the rear while' they protect us in
the front. The honie Vote of Pennsylva
nia can and WILL declare for Liberty mid
Law--for Lincoln and the Union; and let
• no man falter or -hesitate because the ie
. Ault is certain. The more decisive is the
verdict for the government, the sooner
We shall reach Peace, the-more thoroughly
, will the laws be vindicated, and the more
' overwhelming will be the discomfiture
- and despair of traitors in the field. Their
last hope will - vanish as the North x•itl
:One voice declares that there shall he no
degrading compromise with perjured tmi
tots, to give fresh life for mad ambition to
crimson new fields in our future history.
Ohio, Indiana and . Maryland send us
words of cheer. They have spoken and
sent deep and deadly the thrust into the•
very vitals of our Country's foes. Lefbie
and all.malze common cause with then;
let us join hearts and hands to give Victory
to Right_-P 6 eace•by Union and Freedom
to, this fairest of man's inheritance. For
ward, Loyal Men ! Th% hour of final tri
umph seems just at hand, and let us greet
and strengthen every hope that beats for
Union and Law, and drive into utter con
fuSion and dishonor, the faithless men who
wouldlning shame to our brave soldiery,
disaster to oink government, and anarchy
to thirty millions of people. On to Victory!
HOW THE TAILS Nytt IGGLE:
We congratulate the Spirit. True. it
lost its county ticket ;, it has lost nearly if
not quite all its district ticket ; it has lost
the House by nearly two-thirds: i; , lias
lost the 'Senate by nineteen to-fonfteeu ;
it has lost fully two-thirds of the Congres
sional delegation; it has lost the State Ly
not less than ten and Probably as much as
twelve thousand ; it has lost Ohio by inure
majority than any body cures 'to count,
includiqg pretty nearly all the CongTess
men ; it has lost Indiana by twenty thou
sand or more, and saved probably three
Congressmen to tell fluit there was 'a Dou r
Oolitic, party in that State: - it has lost
Maryland by the triumph of It Prev Con
stitution, the unerring precurser , the
success of 14»cotn ; but in the midst of
this wide-sPri‘ad disaster. with its party
defeated on every hand. even routed. de
molalized and • scarcely sale to stagger
into line* be diseondited'in overwhelm
ing confusion, in November, the spirit,
true to itfi serpentine instincts. wriggles a,
score of Coppery tails in imitation of life.
while the heltd is severed and crushed
into lifeless Oformity.
Iu tender Sympathy for it; inmiriiittg
readers, it Nils yniggled some siekly:tail
to tell the stow that however fatal to the
vital; each loyal thrust has b ee n, th ere
still life l t in the snaky body pOlitic. and
that until the sun gotsdown in utter, star
less darknesS over the coppery dead. there
shall be wriggling tails in sickly imitation
of life to confront the loyal hosts at every
step. It does not tell the truth, ha the
good reason that it dare not tell the truth.
If it did not wriggle its tails with (lever
ate energy, even while death is creeping to
its extremities, it would have lint one mass
of dead, and instead of wriggling around
the l=ollson the Sth of November, its his
tory henceforth Would he but a busy work
of finding selnfichres for its slain.- It
therefore instructs its readers not to sic
ceKfilliPuth ; not to hear the troth ; not
to be 'eve the truth—
" Nor to know things where knowledge is haled."
It therefore proclaims victories to its de
feated and despairing ranks, turd wriggles
its slimy tailS through every election table
and into every dispatch recording the ver
dict of October.. Mr. Ward wriggles the
tail of the defunct Democratic State Coni;. •
mittee - into the columns of the spirit, and"
declares Pennsylvania to have gone Derr-
°untie 1;13y - a majority = of seven to ten thou
sand of the home rota?' The votes of
the soldiers" wriggles Mr. Ward, "may, or
may not, reduce this aggregate!" He
therefore wriggles out a congratulation -on
this glorious result:" and the Spirit wrig
gles # out to its readers, in the face of,
stuh.torn figures and the old fashiOned
rules of simple addition. Again in a con
vulsive wriggle, the ,c'piritsays "the returns
indicate large liVmocratic gains frAd.
complete Democratic triumph!" but just
where the "gains" are or where the "coin
plete nitunpli" court's in, the wriggler fails
to tell. Again it wriggles through alcaller,
and declares that "the Dentocracy of the
Old. Keystone State has won a signOtti
utuph!" Possibly it wits a " triumph'', for
Democracy that it could even wriggle a
tail after the October election.; but how
the loss of the State by over tett thousand
and the low; - of the legislature and Con
gressmen "secures the electoral vote of
our graild old Commonwealth for M'Clel
hut and Pendleton," is:a- refinement of
wriggling logic that even the most perspi
cacious of• wrigglers must fail to compre
hend. Again it. wriggles into Mary-lad.
"and asserting her dignity, has declared
that she will be free." Thus blundered
out the truth, lint it was disguised and es:
coped notice in the mass of wriggling dtii
ceptions as it concludes that as Maryland
has voted against them in October, 4here
fore it is "insured for M'Clellan ana Pen
dleton." Merciful.hopeful wriggler!—but
look well to the iietting sun that leaves
the serpents wriggling tails with their oc
Cotiroth is wriggled iu us "endorsed,"
and "by a majority of seven hundred,"
when it was known to even every wrig
gling body that if not utterly defeated, it
is because lizindreds of hrave soldiers have
been unable to cast their votes against
him. "Kimmell received a majority eif
;225, and is iwobably elected." 110 w "such'
a probability - is to be wriggleti against from
,three hundred majority on the
whole voter, would puzzle any bitt one
who wriggles Vs, rule. Again it wrigglls
and declares that "the result of they late
election iu Franklin county was a glorious
triumph for the Democracy," although in
a lumant of repose, it allowed the
icant truth to be uttered that its ticket
"will very likely he defeated,by the sol
dier vote!". It didn't profess to have any -
tiguresc"or returns; but it remembered that
,of brave'soldierA hissing copper
heads have learned to sing—•'G ive us back
our Old Commander." and it wriggled its
fears to the surface in a moment of forget
fulness and guessed the truth. But it was
-not content merely m
with wriggling its il
-I.ny tails in imitation of life alier the bruis
ed head has ceased to respond to the 'gy
rations of its tenacious extremities. It
stride* rooster with flowing tail. and
erect head, as if strutting in victorious and
defiant attitude, and under its shadow the
coppery tails wriggle out Nictories on every
hand. "The Dentneracroriotten"--;,--
"Immense Democratic Gains!"—"A Gaul '
'of Four Congressmen and three Senators.' _
and similar-wriggling figures are cut in
fantastic shadows in its columns. Its gain- . 1
of " four Congressmen" was a :Iv-Jiggle'
right through the truth, and would have
been exactly right had it confessed four
lost instead of won, and its wrigglirig phan
tom of a gain of " three State Senators,"
fades away after the wriggling dance is
over. and presents two lost to the coppery
sidejand two 'gained to the Union. Its
, !Deinocratic majority of 5.000" in the,
State, over which it wriggles a plattoon
of expiring tails, has vanished
ignis lanais that bewitches.
And lends men into p9ols and ditchea",
Nor has it simply Vanished; but while there
was apparent merriment in the high car
nival of wriggling tails over the said "five
thousand," the sullen thunders from the
armies of tlul Republic swelled full ten
thousand high against the co pp er y trib e .
Another wriggle and tlie farce is closed.
A little side-show replete with fantastic
splendors and sublime contortions, assaults
the truth with convulsive fury as its iv-tith
ing extremities points "on to victory."
It is the expiring remnant of the Chairman
of the Democratit County Conimittee. It,
once had vital organs to make it whirl in,
"graCi.ful circles and flaunt its colors into l
the uerysitidel of loyalty; but its wrig
filing tail only remains, and it wriggles iul
keenest imitation of life as it congratulates
the Demoeritcy of Franklin on the "sue.:
cess" which crowned their efforts on the
Itll. Nobly have you battled,'` wrig-
gips the venous little coppery oppendage,
and you have rescued the '•Old Green
?illicit from the control of that organiza
tion which seek to retain power 1)) -- the
inculcation of principles dii•ectlV antago
nistic to those upon which ourgovernment
is founded." ,Suell a wriggle might be
termed a lung wriggle, a strung wriggle,
and a, wriggle alltogether: but the shadows.
of the setting nun seem to be gathering
- about it as it katitions the faithful against
"the apathby which.geOrally tidlows $.111 . -
ces..; !" and urges "labor until the going
down of the sun on the rlth day of Ntiveln

We congratulate the loyal men o

on the election of Gen. WM. 11. KOPNTZ

present incumbent. - With over fifteen

votes, the home vote naturally enough
gave 060 in favor of Gen. Coffroth. who
had voted steadily to withhold men from
our armies and to deny means to maintain
the government credit and pay our gal
lant armies; but enough of those who are
periling their lives for the , safety of the
Republic have voted to reverse the home
- najorify and elect Gen. Koontz. Our
Harrisburg dispatch dated at three P. Me
Monday, gives the aggregate army vote
received at the office of the Secretary of
Slate-lb, 1056 for Koontz, and 385 forCof
