Who Are tAe Disuttiontst, t
It is one of the most curious features
of the timeil that reheat leaders and

with aniweuielit, not uutaitigird with
sorrow over the tel of the . tr
th rt. Ole raJleal leider4 iroume the
indigmation of the radical voters agaitat`
particular candidat es , by saying of them'
”they were opposed to the war, they
were in favor of secession," &e., &c. In
most ca ses the charge is untrue, but what
is curious- is that it was these radicals
themselves who were opposed to the wa
rand in favor of secession. Why, Chi
New York Tribune' originated the phrase
in common use, that condemned "pin
ing one part of the Union to another by
bayonets," and the same paper urged the
strongest reasons in favor of the righi•of
secession and the wrong of coercion.
Other radical sheets were . earnestly in
favor of a dissolution of the Union. It
was the original plan of the abolitionists
to destroy the Union, and they have not
to this day abandonild the plan, No one
can persuade a radical newspaper now—
Tribune, Eeening Part,. or any other of the
stripe—to say that they cle*.re "the old
Union." or that they wish the war prose
cuted for the safety of the, Union which
existed in the year 1660, when
Lincoln was elected to the Presidency.
The most thorough enemies of.the Union
are the'radicals,who, for the sake of success
at the polls, are so fond of professing hoe
for the Uaion, while they pour out all
manner of abuse on the old Union and
its methods of action. The radical party
sr has in fact . come to regard the Union as
dead, a thing of the past, 'never to be
revived. They expect to create some
new government, on their plan, with
their "social systems," and if there were
to-day a visible prove& of restoring the
Union as it was, they would join hands
and hearts- with Jefferson ,Davis and his
'N \ allies to prevent the consummation.—
' And yet these are the metr that claim to
be loyal, and shout vigorously against all
who love the old Union, calling them
traitors, copperheads, and rebel sympath
' tzars. •
The Delaware Outrage.
One of the foUnders of this republic
uttered a timely voice of warning when
he spoke of " overgrown military estab-
lishments which, under any form of gov
ernment, are inauepicioui to liberty, and
which are' to be regarded as particularly
hostile to republican liberty." The Dela-
ware " election," if such a misnomer can
be .tolerated by the intelligent reader,
shows whit are some of the evils to which
republiesO institutions are exposed, in
the presence of the overshadowing power
of a military organtratioa„._ A State on
which the foot, of a rebel army never
trod, and where all the appliances of
civil government were unobstructed in
their operation, was virtually disfranchised
by a military edict, Forms and qualifica
tions were imposed to which no high
minded citizen could subinit without sell
deprailation and conscious dishonor. Ae•
corilinely the c , m , errstive, men of the
State wlthdrew firm the contest, sati,,tied
to leave the interpretation of their acts
with 'tlie jutlifineni of their fellow coun
trymen. "\Vhi-n one's 'adversary is play
ing with marked cards and loaded dice,
the only remedy is to retire front the
game." This was done; and in the forth
cz.mting Congress Delaware wilt be repre
sented by a bogus: member, with no legiti
mate constituency. The same is true, to
great degree, of Maryland The .con
servative men of Dalaware have asserted
their manhood as true Americans, in
whose breasts the spirit of freedom still
‘•WAti Dcmoorars."— When the radicals
praise a man for being a "War Democrat,"
says the Louisville- ,7010u4/,. they do not
mean a pemocrat who is in favor el the
war, but a Democrat who is in favor of
the radi t cal aim and management of the*
war,—aDemocrat, in :lion, who supporta
the' radical ticket. They mean such a
Democrat cs Benjamin F. Butler or An
drew Johnson, or Robert Dale Owen. In
a word,', the phrase " War Democrat" in
the moths of the radicals is merely ano
ther forts of expression for abolitionized
Deumerat. • And this the public now Coin
prehendl. Hence - the phrase has lost
whatever power to deceive it may have
once pnsaessed. It • is — fast beComing a
name o opprobium and of weakness in
stead oil a name of power. The radicals
have disgraced it, as they disgrace or tend
to disgiace everything else they touch.
lir irics' of the difficulties which envi
rou the whole basiuess of recruitiug, it is
apparent that 04e tone of abuse and cal
unmy which the radical papers and ora
tors maintain towards their political op
ponents is exceedingly injudicious. No
thing can be better adapted t# bring about
the necessity of , ss draft thane this contin
ual simians 'of the very class of persons
from which s large majority of th e re .

statements about their wages, which, it
appeared, ranged from $1 to $3 per week
for board, not Including washing, thus en
tirely absorbing their earnings, and they
are compelled to work 'from 11 to 12
hours' per day. The aattiunditig fait was
also made evident that the sewing girls

Let ,that philanthropic portion of our
community, well meaning enough, no
doubt, hitt wholly run astray in their
charitable intentions, who waste so many
sighs ever the condition of the Southern
slaves, reflect over these facts, and tell us
whether there are not objects
. nearer
home that call a thouand times louder for
our generosity, than those poor degraded
Africans, who are now the almost exclu
sive subjects of benevolent attention.
While never failing to pity the enslaved
negeo,:and wishing from the bottom of
our hearts that human bondage every
where might be wiped from the face of
the earth, we have never forgotten, either,
that we have countless hosts of suffering
white men, women and children here, in
the North, - who deserve the first place in our
thoughts. In short, odd and unfashion
able as it seems, we remain a staunch
disciple of the sound old faith, that "cha.
rity begins at borne." If every commu
nity ware to first empley:Aself in
sting the distress which prevails within
its own limits, and making all its citizens
,equally happy, we suspect that enough
would he found to do, without sending off
missionaries to the Hottentots, or taking
up contributions for the Patagonians, or
bewailing by night and day, the institu
tions of sister States.
The Comlig Draft.
The quota of this State, (says the Chant
bershuig Repository, setai•otficial,) under
the taste call is 38,268 ; but the adminis
tration calls for all .deficieuces under for
mer requisitions, and 'thus increases the
demand now made upOn our State to over
91,000. The number of men due from
Peunsylvania - on the 17th of October last,
when the requisition was officially issued,
was as follows :
Deficit prior to daft of 1863. .16,071
Deficit oa laat draft, 36,754
Quota under the new call, 38,268
Total, • - - 91,093
The item of 16,071 is made up of men
drafted in 1862 and never reported for
duty. The draft at that tims was made
for the entire number of men then due
under all requisitions to that date ; but
many deserted or never reported, and
now.they will be liable to be drafted for
three years instead of it months. .

The,radical newspapers, and even some

deavoring to glois over the foili wrong
done to RepubliCan institutions by the
course or the Administration in its mili

Maryland. These papers assure their
readers that every loyal man had_an op.

true. The fact isltoo plain to be denied,
that not only wily the order made that
none but loyal men should vote, but the
definition of loyalty was also made and
published, by which all 'tho.te who would
have voted against the Administration
candidates were
,declared disloyal, and
thus forbidden to. approach do polls, un

• 4Thehnost oompleti and magnificent railroad
' I
stationlin America, we presume, is the grand
depot tind its appurtenances at Meadville, the
dining ipoine of thsl great continuous broad
gauge tailroad 'front Now York to Bt. Louis,
the forFal opal's 'of which wee celebrated
at Cleveland on the t Bth inst. The annexed
paragriph, from th 6 Cleveland Leader, con
tains slimier descripiion of the 'railroad palace
at Meadville : , ;
,f, , Meradville is the ehief , town upon the line
of tbepttlanticlt Gtrat Western Railroad, and
the moil important. i One year ago there was
not a „&all , laid or i stick of timber on the
gronti4 at Meadville,. To-day there is in fall
operation and use the finest depot building we
know if is the century ; and the iron horse,
otter *using herei tci take food and drink,
rusher on away off into - the hills i f Ohio. • This
depot building is three hundred and twenty.
seven feet in length Itud about eighty in height.
Throui h its centre !run three tracks for pas
eenge4 trains. Wide platforms extend aloag
both sties. Upon one side are the ticket office,
reception rooms, and all the main offices of
the company, elegantly and fully arranged for
the transaction of business, On the opposite
side tits new hotel, which is to be kept? by
that prince of landlords, Taylor, formerly of
the Atigier, in this city: The great feature of
this hotel is the immense railroad dining hall,
two hiindred feet. lOng, about thirty feet wide
and thirty-five feet high to the ceiling. It is
profuhely lighted upon both' sides. The finish
and aulorning of the rooms ,is superb, being
all in black walnut ; Overhead the rafters and
stringers are is inn view; titter the style of
the lnest Episcopal chinches, while : at the
easter end agreat, stained glass window in.
cresi'es the resitablance. It is altogether the
demo hall fur the purpose we have ever seen.
in rilige with the dining hall are the, o ffi ces,
of the hotel, ; while - the hotel proper ex..
tendi as - an L (rim the western end of the
depot two hundred and ten feet. This will be
elegantly furnished-sad supplied with all the
conveniences and jnxuries of which any me
tropiiliten'bouse tin boast. As for the cuisine,
nobody who tarried with Taylor at the Angier
needs soy assurances. The grounds about the
hotel are being graded sod laid out artistical
ly. Five acres iinmediately about the hotel
will be laid out as a pleasure garden, with
walks, arbors, foUntains, Sc. short, the
'McHenry lionselwill be one of =the best to be
found in all the States. The railroad company
are in possession(of a large quantity, of land
adjacent to the depot, which has heretofore
been farm,meadow Land, and are erecting
very extenNelrj.rks, which will be models of
their kind. Of Meadville proper it can be
said that few inland towns have imago steady
and substantial trade. An old merchant who
has resided there twenty-seven years stated
that there had been less. than a doted business
failures in that tithe. The population of the
,town in 1860 wits about five thousand. To
this number probably two thousand have al
ready been added', and the impetus given by
the railroad will 'increase it to ten thousand in'
two years snore. I There are many wealthy ia,
habitants and fine residences, mostly located
upon the elevated sites which the railing char
acter of the landlpresents."
