The Dangers Ahead.
The New York Evening Post, the ablest
&publican" paper in .the country, has a
,correspondent whose views on the fman
eisd situation : agree substantially with
tints expressed in our leading article last
week. The following, the World sarcasti
cally remarks, is a " pleasant picture of
what is in store for-the country and the
" Under the present state of things
' there is no limit to the. circulation of the
National Banks to the amount which they
can procure from the treasury. As their
capital continues to increase, our paper
- circulation will continue to expand, the
price of gold and other things will con
tinuo to 'rise, the distress among that
great majority of the people who live
upon wages will contintle to grow more
and more severe, and finally the dissatis
k. faction which has sprung up among this
large class, and among those who sympa
thise with them, will continue to increase
in extent and bitterness anti/ it overwhelms
the administration and especially the hopes of
r the present hideous confusion in the
finances of the country will rid us of the

W tis the mattet with the Tribune
and the dical senators that they aro not
shouting" to Richmond?" When
General Meat .n was in command, he
was not allowed a oment's rest by these
people. In season an. .ut of season they
kept up their insane cla .'.r; yet General
GassT is not urged to expe a his move
ments by so much as a single d. Why
McClellan had an army and its mats 'al
to create ; Grant's army is already in th
field and fully equipped. McClellan's
army, from generals to - privates, was a ,
mass of raw recruits with everything to
learn, while Grant's are veterans, and fit for
any military duty. McClellan had to-or
ganize the machinery of supplying an ar
my; yet Grant has only to give the order
and everything needful for a million of
soldiers could reach him in a week. Mc-
Clellan's army was wanting in _numbers,
discipline, clothing, equipments, arms,
everything, in fact, while Giant's army
wants nothing. Yet during the menthe
of November and December of 1861, and
January and February of 1862, the coun
try rang with the clamor& of the radicals
against the tardiness :eaf Gen. McClellan.
But now not a whisker against General
Grant. Under the pleasure of these keo
ple Lincoln peremptririly ordered General
McClellan to advance on the 22d of Feb
ruary, mud or no mud ; but here it is
April and no signs of an immediate move
ment. What is the Tribune about Where
is Chandler ; Wade, Wilkinson, and4he
rest, that they are not bawling "On to
Richmond ?"—ltr. Y. World. '
Tzeitz are reasons, says the World, for
believing that if General Grant's armies
de not in motion, those of Jeff. Davis are.
It is now plain that Forrest's movements
in Western Tennessee and Kentucky par
take as much of the nature of an invasion
as a raid, and that they are in conjunc•
tion with other operations of the larger
rebel armies. The news from rebel sources
is unusually 'scant, and these agree in
stating that the rebels woul(*akes the in.
itiativennleas General Grant moved before
the middle of April. Of course state
ments of this kind, which come through
rebel sources, simply show the intentions
of the confederate.. leaders, which may be
thwarted by uploobed for difficulties. But
unless all the signs are deceptive the cam
paign has. opened, in 'Virginia, and the
rebels are about to strike the first blow.

Izmir" the murderer:, has sent the
pistol with which it is supposed he shot
his victim, to the Sanitary Fair, with in-
Structions to apply the proceeds of its sale
to the vote on the sword in favor of Gen
eral Grant, What a godsend, says the
World, it would have been to the Tribune,
if, by some whim of this depraved young
man, ha bad chosen to vote for General
McClellan instead. It would hare been
repeated every day and have appeared in
every column of the paper, and the public
would have been gravely told that this
was a specimen of the men who favored
"Little Mire as a presideitisl candidate.

The Republican Party.
Written for the Erie Observer.]
The so called Republican party has hereto,- 1
fore been shown to be numerically a faction;
scarcely at the time of its greatest success
numbering more than one-third of the Amerir
can People. It has been shown to be emir
neatly a sectional &gin, having its strength
and its brains in _that corner of the Confed
eracy known as Raw England, and it has
been charged with being destructive of the
Principle of Democratic government, in that
it proposed to rule one section of the Itepo-_,
lio regardless of the wishes and laws of its:
inhabitants, as well as by a policy repudiated
at the ballot box at odious by two-thirds 'of
the people. In Its . Inception it was revolu
tionary, for the reason that so long as It res
trained itself within the bounds of constitu
tional law, and acknowledged fealty 10. the
government as it existed, the so called Re
publican faction was powerless to act and
impotent - -tor harm. DlOt one of its cherished
schemes could it carry out under the Coaati
tution of the United States, not a slave could
it. steal, not a slaveholder could it subject to
its insane hate, till the government. of the
United States had ceased to exist, and over '
riding at once the law and the popular aril',
the hosts of Abolitionism set their feet upon
the necks ofkhe people, and rioted among' the.
ruins of a revolutionized Republic. Wise
men foresaw the result of 7 lbis attack of a
Revolutionary faction upon the governMent
of the Confederitcy, aild the interests !and
very life of one-third of its people. The! in
cendiary fanatics prayed that revolution
might come, or tot themselves behind the
screen of a vain complacency and' self-Con
fidence, and sneeringly said there is no &tiger.
The catastrophe came with its imagined hor—
rors multiplied a hundred fold, the -lunatics
were exultant, the Belt Whaled folloiers
tremble for the forfeited existence of their
faction. That portion of the citizens ;rho
conside ed themselves aggrieved and hid re
sorted o a counter revelation for protection,
allowed themselves to be drawn into a entire,
and to use the expression which so delights
- the loyal heart, " Slaveholding treason fired
on the flag." The people indignant, rose to
repel the outrage, and the revolutioUists
found•themselves for a time save/ fronak.he
punishment due to their crime in destroYini
the Republic, and they were now become ''the
chosen instruments 'to save the Union they
had rent asunder, and preserve the Constitu-
Naga attempt to place each separately before
The so called . Republican party, by fraud and.
falsehood, has inauguraieda revolution, and by
force carries it on, against the expressed mill of a
vast majority of the people, destructive of the
liberties and material interest, of the country.
When the so:called Republican parti was
but just seated fp power, and when the fruits
of its criminal attaca upon the first prin—
ciples of Democratic government beganto be
seen in - the wreck of the Republic, before an.
attentive world and a people 'trembling at the
loss of the united country they had loved and
loped tcrpreserve, this unprincipled faction
made the most solemn pledges 'that the war
should be conducted for certain purposes that
they knew could alone have the suPport of
that section relied on to sustain the war
measures of the administration ; and' more
than this, it was clearly and emphatically
stated for what -the war should not be waged.
The proofs of ija utter faithlessness to these
solemn promises are so overwhelming, that
to dwell upon them is superfluous. Among
I the leaders and active and controlling:mem
bers, there cannel be found one who will now
avow himself in favor of that Union 'of the
States which the so•called Republican party
destroyed; not one who gives his vote for the
restoration of the Constitution over the Revo
lutionary territory ; not one who does not
daily pray that the war may be prosecuted
for conquest and subjugation; not one who
does not sneer at the idea that States have
any rights or institutions, that a Fedeial ad
ministration may not trample under its feet.
Yet ate people trusted to their promittes and
gave this 'tendon the control of the lives,
liberties and property of the eitirena of the
Republic, and how have they been rewarded ?
A fraud so stupendous,, an act at once so
cowardly and so criminal, is unequalled in
the annals of political perfidy.
The majority:et the people of the United
States are entitled, to govern their Country
according to the lairs4hat they have enacted,
and in such a manner as- not to oppe!eis the
minority. What then' is the will of the ma
jority. as ascertained by - elections hold, and
by the attitude of the Southern people, who
are 'entitled either to a voice in the Ill.:Unitas
tration of public affairs, or else to their in=
dependence as a separate people! ! Nearly
one million and a-half of voters in the North
ern States believe the following propositions,
In' common with -their fellow countrymen of
the South :
; That the Federal government is one of de.
legated authority alone, and has no poWers
notgiven to it by the majority of the States,
in the manner provided by law. ! -
That won those powers so delegated can—
not be found the Federal right to destroy
States and State governments or the Consti—
tutions and laws adopted by the people
That if the Federal government has no
powers except what are delegated by the peo
ple of the several States, when # unmet to
exercise those not so delegated, Merle mnst:be
either by constitotional or natural law, a
remedy for the wrong.
That the Southern people are engaged In
resisting what they believe to be the imeroaeh—
meats of the Federal government lipon their
laws and liberties. '
That when those encroachments 'Fosse, the
cause for Revolution is removed,: and the
eel:Salton of the war becomes both p olicy and
Upon these the muses of the South, and
newly one•lialf of the people of ,'the North
are agreed. The people of the two sections
disagree as to the following, and Upon em
• The Southern people bellereithat. what
has transpired daring_ the last three years,
the burning., and robberies and horrors in
flicted upon them, a dissolution of the Union'
is imperatively demanded for their own pre-
serration. They do not doubt that; fora time
they might be secure in the ifoonuion of
their liberties, and might always !be secure
under the Coutitalion of the United States;
Ent they have seen the aelelle4 Repablienn
faction . acknowledging no law but' its own
will, and they dOubt the "capeolt, of the
people to put it down - and keep' it in sub—
ordination. They are fighting against the so
called Republican Want), anti the fearful and
irresponsible despotisms that; it would fasten
upon the lountry. , The Northern Causes on
the contrary believe that the old! Union
still possible, and If so, desiirable.,l
Again another point of. distgreettiect is the
question of slavery: The l'iorthetin' portion
believing that slavery of an kind is an evil,
wish some day to see, It abcilished by the' ae
lion of the people interested : then*, without
the shedding of blciod, the plunder of the
slaveholdere' property, or the extinction of
the negro race. They believe titit in His
own time Providence will bring this shoat,
and that the efforts of fanatics lin forcing
through the barriers of God's law, have al•
ready resulted is evil tenfold greater than
that of slavery„-and the end is notl yet.
The Southern people believe that tho negro
ietotally unfit for freedom, ' ; and that . he vlil
never be alight else than the infelor creature
he now is ; that he is in the station assigned
him by nature, and, that the evils of slavery
are to be corrected, - not
, by it destrUctive over
turning of their system, but by the ameliora
tion of the condition of the negro in his
state of slavery.
Opposed to this great mass ofithe people,
we find abbut one-third, the so-called Repub
lican party, holding opinions diractly the re
verse of those of the majority, and enforcing
them with the immense power Of an army
made up, not of themselves, butl_of the con
scripted, the hired and the deluded. Nor do
the leaders of this party dilly this statement
of the question. They Continally 'charge
upon the conservative portion of the Northern
people ."sympathy with treaeon." Treason,
as treason, no Democrat sympathises with or
countenances. There are' certain ideas and
epinions that have been iheld by the great
majority of the people of the Union from the
period of its formation.' Certain political
theories have been adhered to since our ex=
'stance ao a people, which, though frequently
attacked by the subtleties of argument, un
dermined by popular deoePtioniOr exposed to
the assaults of poWer, hale ever been trium
phant, have ever retained their hold of the
popular mind, and from their inherent truth
and immutability, have ever withstood their
opposers. "Thus it is no*, and thus it will
ever be; the Majority of the pieople. though
borne down for a time, will in the end resume
their inalienable right to govern. ' The so
called Republican party )nay ride fora time
over the laws the majority of the people have
made and still sanction, May triumph in the
hour of the Republic's kiln, may subject by
force the popular will, but only; for a time.
Revolution is a natural right, justifiable
under - all governments, :and in a Republic
this principle may be said to he incorporated
into, the fundamental law. TO give it moral
justification, and the Approval of mankind,
there mast be certain °arises and attendants,
or else it becoMes a crime,' not so much
Against the laws of the countiy and its gee
-snt, -voinst that 111 1 Ihr'
people, we find none of these concoidtants'
needful to preserve it trim the odium of wast
ton and insane criminality. :Upon what legal
or naturni right had the governmeat,pf the
United States ever encroached, belonging to
these New England fanatice who wished to
destroy and overthrow it ? Were any of their
natural or legal rights threistened or endan
gered by the Constitution they- had violated
and denounced? Did they engage with seine
in the contest they bad brought upon the
country ? and would the suceess of their party_
give them one jot more liberty, or a single
blessing of Republican government, that they
have not already enjoyed ? On the coatrary,
the motive power of the Abolition revolution
was fanaticism, that degenerated into an in
sane hatred of the people of one third of the
common country, and the :swipes of the so
called Republican party would introdjsce into
our government primedente that would 'enable
some other administration, :supported by some
other section or States, to subjugate gad
plunder in a future war, 'that 'New England
that now reps for the property and blood of
thelouthern people. Is destroying the Santis,
the so-called Republican piety is opening the
*road by which the Ncirth, the But and the
West may some future day; be lipproiohod cad
themselves ruined. The question before the
people is, shall the free !government of the
United States be preserved over snob a por
tion as it shall be possible to rescue, or shall'
one-third of the people revolutionise that
government, convert it into a • despotism
against thy' popular will, and leave for one
only boast 'la government" over a rained and
impoverished •peopla :
Tne Futon: movement daily .asiumes
a more serious aspect for the - idministra
tionists. Several of the prominent organs
of that wing of the Abolition party boldly
announce that if he,is not nominated by
the Baltimore, convention, he will run as
an independent candidate. The National
'Anti-Slavery Standard liras the following
unmistakable languagei :
" You may nominate Mr. Lincoln,
sibly, without satisfying the radicals; but
you cannot elect him. Another candidate
will inevitably be run unless he puts him

nal of the North."

By J. R. MUM%
How oft trona angry lips depart
dome word, that pierces to the heart,
Like adder's sting, !ester tLere;
In troodiog silence and despair.
How oft has joke or repartee
Bees cause of lasting misery,
And friendships severdd even by
A hsaglitY glance,' a cold reply.
How,sit his love been fumed aside,
By,,esreless word or silly pride;
And sorrow come, but when too late,
'To change that careless word of fate
How oft have fierce contentions rose,
And war with its long train orwoes
Succeeded to one angry word,
From tyrant king or sellisk lord.
And oft hath silent sorrow kept
Her tears unseen, and secret wept
For words unkind which bath been said
9f some dear friend now with the dead.
Oh j then, let all our 'words be kind,
That thiy no sting may leave behind;
For he who speaks with evil tongue,
Doth both himself and victim wrong.
OttUan.—We 'spent a very pleasant after
nom on- Saturday last• in Girard, and were
only sorry that our limited
_time would not
Permit us •to remain longer. We were fortu
. to find Capt. D. W. Hutchinson,
Chairman of the Comity Committee, at home,
who kindly escorted us , about the town, and en
abled us to make the acquaintance of a num
ber of its prominent citizens. Our visit to
the place last year impressed us with the
opinion that we eiprotsed at tho time, viz:
that Girard is the handeiomest town of its
size in Pennsylvania, and the views that we
then formed were fully confirmed on this oo•
cuion. We left in the evening train with no
little regret, bearing with us the most delight
•ful reoollectiorui of the tasty little borough and
its hospitable citizens.
No perion who goes to Girard regards his
visit as complete' without calling upon Dan
Rice, and of course we would not omit to avail '
Ourself of the opportunity. . We were re
*steed by him in that spirit of generosity so
characteristic' of the man, and have to thank,
him for enabling us to enjoy a couple as agree
able hours as we have ever spent. Mr. Rice
has a magnificent propertyin and about Girard,
and he is yearly adding to its attractions.
The rounds around his residence are fitted
up in a very tasteful style, and contain many
rare plants and: fruits. lie has 'recently pur
chased a large addition, which will make them
a fall square In length, and he intends sur
rounding the whole with a substantial fence,
and fitting them up in a style equal to any in
the country. - Mr. Rice has an excellent col
lection of picttires, and many curious - articles,
which would occupy a whole day to. thorough
ly examine. Among other rich and interest
trig things that we saw, - is the marble bust of
ktmself, executed by a youngartist in Chicago,
a work of art that is hardly surpassed, and
the reputation attending which has made the
fortune tittle sculptor. We fohnd Mr. Rice,
- wbat we had • expected, a jovial, - hospitable,
open-hearted and unaffected man, possessing
much natural intelligence, a shrewd insight
into character, and a wide acquaintance' with
the world, and many of its prominent person
ages. Like the rest of us, he has his enemies,
of course, nut- generally speaking, the people
of Girard regard him as a public spirited and
useftd citizen—ona• whom they could poorly
We were not at all sorry that we mitsed
the first train, for, by good luck, we happened
to meet Charley Noyes, and he would have us
go np to his house, and to be sure, we accepted
—with becoming modesty. It there is a Man
anywhere that knows how to make one " feel
perfectly-at home" as quick as he steps over
the threshold of his door; it is that same
Charley, as more than one of our Erie ' , boys"
can bear witness: , A gentleman in every sense
of the word, a good neighbor and liberal °M
ien; there is not a person in Girard but wishes
him success from the bottom of his heart.
We are glad to learn that his profits last year
were large enough - to make him "comfortably
well off," and we hope he may make enough
this year to enablelim to retire from business,
settle dowa into the comforts of his lovely
cottage home, sabseribe for the 05server,* and
take life easy for the remainder of his days.
On Wednissday night last an intoxicated
soldier -jumped from* third story window in
Warren, O, says the CF►osiele, and strange to
say, sustained , scarcely an injury. When
found he was lying stretched out apparently
insensible. His companion! believing him
dead, were talking of totting the coroner,
when be cooly remarked,—.4 , Boy., I f a u lt
dead by a d—n eight." He had retired to
rest with another soldier, who offered him five
cents to leave, when he went to the window
and took the leap.
Nothing strange about it. Who ever heard
of a drunken man being hurt ? We knew•of
one who tumbled off a two-story house, struck
a portico in the way, whirled clear around,
and lit on his head upon the pavement, and it
• dn't faze him a bit. Cooly gathering him
up, to the astonishment of a crowd of
spec •rs, he .remrrked : Boys (hie) I-I-11
