- We are Often asked by our friends, says
the New York Wor ld, can the Democrats
possibly elect General McClellan 7 We
say, yes, easily. Look around you and see
the evidence of it with which every man
may prove the result for himself.. Look
around you among your friends and no
quaintances. Do you knew any Democrats
who are not going for 'McClellan ? Hardlyt
one, from Maine to Minnesota, outside of
Miryland. Do you not know many men
in your city, county n p r town who voted
for-Lincoln four yeap ago who will not
vote for him nowlho are working for
McClellan—true pat iots,i who see Lin.'
coin's unworthiness, and will not re-elect
him to power? Do you not see the Re
publinan papers working with desperate
energy, not to!' make proselytes—not to
-win support to tincoln, but simply tobold
their own—to keep more men from de
serting to the opposition ?
'This is the situation everywhere. Mc
blellan's gains are 'thus in the aggregate
enormous. Neither the bayonets, nor the
money, n6r the office-holders of
can save him from defeat. the Democrats
arid' conservative men of the North can
not only "possibly elect McClellan ;" they
can't. possibly help elcting him. Reckon
up these changes in your own county; ob
serve that the changes are all one way
over the country, mad. then remember the
small per centage of the total vote required
to win, and figure out the result: Look
at New England—Maine, even-4.a gain of
over three thousand votes,. against' an ag
gregation of influence which can. in no
State be thus concentrated in November.
The Abolition Mass Meeting on Wednesday,'
was eonsiderabir more of a success than the
olio of a couple weeks ago. The procession
was rather a handsome affair, and was evident

of their deplorable failure previously, the Ab.
°Mien leaders were determined to haves "big
thing of it, If possible, on this occasion. Con
sidering the energy expendedin"drumming°
' etp the crowd, and the large majority tie op

Thursday was not any larger (if as large) than

Gov. Pierpont, of Virginia, and "Col.".lileat.

Thursday, the 6th 'of October, is a day
long to be remembered' ,in the history of
Erie county, and especially in the memo
ries of 'her Democratic citiaens. -7 On•that
day, regardless of the unpropitioos state
of the weather, defying the heavy storm
of the previous night and morning, And
the wretched condition of the roads, the'
pattiotic'people turned out as if by a corn-'
mon inspiration, to assert the old 'time
principles of their fathers, and proolaile
anew their devotion to the Union and
Constitution, and their dissatisfaction with'
the fanaticism, North and South, which is
endeavoring to subvert them. We have
delayed our publication in order to 'IVO
atuLccotint of this astounding "demon tra
lion, but. of course, can do nothing ore,
in the hurried conditidn in which we find
ourselves, consequent on the necessity of
reaching the mails that all our patrons
may be supplied this weelc, than to give a
mere outline sketch of the proceedings. •
The day opened as dreary and disheart
ening as one could imagine. Nearly all
the preceding night rain fell in such copi
ous quantities that the streams were filled
to their brims, the roads covered with
:nod knee deep, and in some places *brid
ges and .culverts were carrieil away, re
quiring travelers to go miles out of their
regular course. The rain appeared to fall
the hardest about five o'clock, when the
people from the country would be mot
likely, Co be making their-preparations to
start for ihe city. Everything looked dis
couraging; and there is no use to' disguise
the fact, that those, who had taken the
most active part in getting up 'the meet
ing began to feel decidedly "blue." The
weather during the entire forenoon was
exceedingly disameable ; sometimes the
skid's brightened for a short peridd„ las
if to clear :up, and then suddenly would
Unit'. forth another sharp sprinkle of rain
that seemed calculated to dampen the
spirits of even the most ardent. patriois.
The city Republicans were jubilant. They
felt confident that the meeting was to be
a "fizzle." Eiery'Democrat that they mL
was greeted with some jeering remark,
which showed in an unmistakable manner
the assurance they had conceived that the
meeting was to he a failure, and the;anxi--
ety they entertained that It should ,be
such. But the overweening happiness of
1 these gentlemen of exclusive "loyalty,"
was soon to be brought to a pitiful over
throw, the more painful because it was so
1 unexpected and overwhelming.
About noon the clouds became broken
up, and the remainder of the afternoon
until about five o.clock was comissistively
pleasant. The firing of the cannon in the
Park announced that the grand proces
sion from Federal Hill had entered State
street,*and, as if by magic, the thorough
fares became filled with people. As it
passed dOwn State street the air seemed
perfectly wild with shouts, and the blaze
of enthusiasm thus auspioiuously started,
continued throughout the day. No one
could have witnessed the intense, impres
sive and spontaneous outburate of ap
plause which burst forth from the throats
of the Democratic thousands assembled
on Thursday, without feeling that there
was something more than mere party et;
tachment or political bigotry that caused
them to be expressed. It was the irrepressi
ble sentiment of the heart, responding - .o
the solemn-cOnviction of the judgment,
that this administration has been tried
and "found wanting," and_ that nothing
less than a return to the teachings of ,
those who founded the Republic can save
it from total anarchy and ruin. ,
That- the procession was a success—a
great one undei the circumstances—no
one, not blinded by Abolition bigotry, will
deny. It astonished the Opposition, and
it surprised the friends of the movement
scarcely any less. The line stretched from
,the Lake bank far beyond Federal Rill►
a distance of at least two miles. lt was
not so handsome, perhaps, as the-one of
last year, but that could not have been
expected. Three bands; isooursed music
on the route, and the number of flags and
banners seemed 'almost innumerable. Re
markatilcoas the procession was, it was, if I
anything, surpassed by the meeting 'WM.
We do not undertake to estimatra the
number of people present, for vde know
too well the contradictory nat'.are of opin
ions on such subjects, bat we have no hes
itation in saying that the crowd was at least
as large as any politio , ,l assemblage ever
convened in this o ur own p r i va te
opinion is, that it 'was larger than the Re
publican one of, the day before, but we
shall tO eatVded with claiming an equal
number, v.nd when it is remembered that
the Lio politee bad two to our one in the
electi on of 1863, our friends abroad can
for some conception of the spirit that
'actuates the people of North' Western
Pennsylvania in this campaign. Thegen
ilemen from Philadelphia and elsewhere
of both parties, who participated in the
railroad excursion, expressed • themselves
astonished at such an 'exhibition of Alb*.
c rade strength in Erie county. And what
was more striking still, it was two-thirds
composed of bona Ms voters, men "who
wield a power in the land," and not main
ly of women and children, as is the case
with moat large political demonstrations.
The tueeting was organised by theelec
tion of Hon. Selden Marvin as President,
with a long list of Vice Presidents and
Speeches were mule from three differ
ent stands around each of Which an im
mense, compact mass of people listened
with close interest, and, if. their almost

We think this meeting will be, prodmitive st

of the speeches. It will stiffen the back bones
of our Democratic friends at home, and the
news of our reMarkable'succeis will go abroad
to encourage oue,brethren in -other parts of
the country. It will aoaviacte the Abolition
office holders and office hunters of this vicini
ty, that the Democratic peOple of Erie city
and county are not to be brow-beaten, and
that, if they are not & majority, they at least
constitute a very respectable: minority, whose
sentinieuts 'and interests hid better not be
trifled with to soo great an ezlens. And, be
yond all, it was an unerring indication of
the spirit which moves the honest masse of
the people, giving us every reason thopti and
believe, that to the eleetlons'soon to occur the
popular majority will be out in such \ se way
as to elect the tried patriots, George liblts-

ing the return of an honorable peast'-'-tWI*I

The rebel leiden. do me "desire" the ago

and printed testimony they hen wen on
that point refutes the exertion tint they
do. The Southern people snay„for in that
event they would see the hope of a return
to pane, happiness and prosperity, lAA a
united country ; but their leaders:seek in
dependence, and know" well that with Mo.
Olen= as President they could not keep
the masses with them. Lincoln offers the
Southern people nothing but subjugation,
- emancipation and obedience
to tha'arbitrary measures of the Abolition
party. McClellan &skint them no other
condition of peace tint a return to the
Union and submission to the constitution.:
'II law. of the land, with all their personal
and State rights unimpaired: The former
is the policy of aggravation, or usselent•
lag hate, of determined opprenion ; the
latter of conciliation, of justice, and of
magnanhnity.• Under Lincoln's plan, the
entire South, men. women sad children,
will remain a unit in the neolution to
"fight it oat to the bitter end;' wider
McClellan's, the peOple would 'soon be
come convinced their-it was more to their
interest to have peace by returning bi the
Union than to continue fighting for the
I phantom of a separate government. The
rebel leaden understand this thoroughly,
and hence their anxiety that, Lincoln may
be re•elected. I Wigs the Illinois buffoon

it was, conceding to the States-all 'their
rights, including that of property in
slaves. The Abolitionists, however, would
rather see the Union slide than see the
Southezu States restored With slavery re
tained. They would see in this restora
tion, also, a great party disadvantage ; for
the entire vote of the Southern States
would be dead weight against theM in
every contest. They Would become peace
men on the basis of Confederate indepen
dence soccer than see such a Union as
McClellan 'would restore. And of all per
sons none could they be more unwilling
to , trust, for none do they more bitterly
hate than McPlellan himself. If ti then,
`the Democrats/should come out, for war,
and be successful in the election, the Abo.
litionists will 'he fos, peace. So, in any
case, we are sure of a powerful peace party
- in the North'.
The Macott (C t.) Appeal asys : "The as

The Riohinood Die Patch, io a different
article from the one quoted above, after

in favor of Old Abe, and if we could Com

the South the most united people that
ever went forth to battle with an invader;
and for that he deserves the lively grati

The Augusta (Gs.) Cbettitutioouilist, of a
late date, talki•this way : ,
"From McClellan's letter of acceptance

the two alternatives we have the less to
fear from viblence,"
The Mobile Register of the 16th Septem
tier has a long article in which the hope'
is expressed that Gen. McClellan': nomi
nation will divide and break down the
Democratic party, and then, it adds :
"Lincoln Is far better 'for us think
lan." the reasons given being the same as
expressed in our comments above, that
the latter's success would establish a
strong - Union party in the Elbuth, while
the reelection of the former Will, in the
opinion of the liegisur, keep the nmases
resolved on independence. and lead, to
final triumph. - •
The Richmond Evairer, of Septemher
22d, is thus emphatic an the subject of
Sheridan's late victories: "Paitial succes
ses, like this in the valley, mat elect Lin

very little to any final result: They serve
the purpose of. Lincoln to defeat McClel

armistice to be accepted, it must be ed.

Editor of Observer :—Tbo star of Democracy
is in the asoezdenor. Our Maas Meeting at
this place, on Monday, was a decided Success,.
Compared with the one the Disunionist' held
on the 30th ult., it was far superior in num-
bers, in . order, in caliber of speeches, inciden
tal entertainments, &a and the Abs au
knowledge themselves out did. Isaac R. Tay
lor ,was appointed Presiding Officer, G. A.
Allen, Thou. U. Nash and Sure:
taries, with an able corps of Vice Presidents.
After a brief and able speech by the President
a splendid American Eiiign, 14x20 feet, was
presented to ',the Edinboro Democratic Club
by the ladies otEdinboro and Washington.
The material •:of this flag wu purchased by
the 14dtee themielves, at a cost of seventy
dollar', and wrought by their - own fair hands
tin a m anner superior to anything of the kind
in Erie county, and .challenges excellence. It .
' was 'presented, in behalf of the donors, by G.
A. Allen, Esq. This was responded to, on be•
hat of the Club: by, Dr. •J.: C. Wilson.
[Want of time obliges us to omit Mr. Allen's
and Dr. Wilson's speeches Until next week.—

doctrine. Capt. Hutchinson "wee then called

Dear Observer.:—Here we are again. There
are quite stirring times here at present. Last
Thursday evening the Democratic °lab of Co.
iambus met and read their resolutions, after
which they were addressed by Mr. V.'S. Cur
tis, of this place. As we were not present we
are unable - to give you either' the resolutions
or the speech, both of which we hove been
assured were excellent. Mr. Curtis is a young
man of great promise, this being, we under
stand, his first attempt at public speaking ;
and we are told it was a perfect success. .The
"loyal" citizens of Columbus and vicinity,
turned out en mane .to listen, to the vise
sayings of Meters. Scofield and Curtis, of
Warren. As we' attended a "Copperhead"
meeting at Corry wa are unable to inform you
of their success. At. Corry we listened to
Messrs. Whitman, Lloyd add others, who told
us a great many truths. We were very sorry_
to learn the lamentable condition of Goy.
Bigler. But we fear we are trespassing upon
your space and therefore wilt close by saying,
