Our Terms.
As our uew terms for 186$ seem to hat e
escaped the notice of many of our friends, we
again call attention to them, in order to pre
vent. misunderstanding.. To all who pay is
advance,or within a month atter the com
mencement of their subscriptions, the price
will be Two Dom...tits per year—subscribers
served by city carriers being charged r wry
iI:NT9 extra. All who do not pay in adsance,
or within a month, will be
Two Dem
i...NW, AND FIFTY CENTS, ald those who wait
until the expiration of the year, THREE Dol.-
LARS. We have had some 'complaint that
the lbniter price of the paper was too high,
and avail ourself of this arrangement to avoid
it in future. Those who think they eannot
afford more than Two Dollars for a paper
have the efiance afforded them by making
prompt payment, And those who neglect to
do so must expect to pay the extra fifty
cents. Thow rafca trill Le: otriray adhered t.,,
and we shall publiiih this notice sufficiently
long for all to see it, so that none will have
an excuse frir saying that they did not know
Mir,precise terms.
A number of i,:abseribers - paid in advance
at the old rates, before we decided upon ma
king a change. In all instances, the extra
sum will be allowed them upon their next
year's subscription, being at the rate of three
months for each fifty cent, in excess.
6 6 Loyal 99 and 4 • Loyalty."
The daily Republican copies ." from the
latest edition of Webster's Unabridged," the
following - definitions of these two much
abused words, for the " special use and be
hoof of the editor of the Observer:"
LOYAL, a. [Fr. loyal, &c., &c.. Lat. legalis,
from ler, leffizt, Fr. b y, lai lei, law-1
1. Devoted to . the maintenance of law ;
di,po , ed to uphold the constituted authority ;
faithful to the lawful govi•rnment, he!her
parental, civil, or divine.•
LOYALTY, la. the state or quality of being
Mr"".l:4galty . . . being derived from
[Fri 10i, expresses, properly„,that fidelity
which one owes according to law,—and does
not necessarily include that attachment to
the royal person, which, happily, we in En
gland have been able further to throw into
the world."—French.
" LOYAL MEN, it. Those who sustained the
Government during the great Rebellion."—
After reading these definitions, we arc
confirmed in the view heretofore expressed,
that our cotemporary, its lavish use of the
terms retiTred to, either did not understand
their meaning until the editor turned to Web
ster to ascertain it, or employed them with.a
tnll knowledge that it was misconstruing the
- slime. It has invariably alluded to Radicals
as the "loyal men." and to the Radical or
ganization as the party of " loyalty," the in
ference being that their opponents were all
" disloyal." Taking Websterand Grant, who
are accepted by the Republican, as our guide,
it Is an easy matter to' show that the terms
oufr,lit to be used in exactly the Opposite
sense from that employed by our cotem
porary. The Democratic party is the may_
one which, through its whole history, under
all circumstances and in every crisis of the
•nation, has been steadfastly • devoted to the
maintainance of law disposed to uphold
the constitt4ted authority," and consistently
" faithful toi the lawfel•government, whether
parental, civil or divine." It was the only
one which " sustained the Government
during the great relidlion," to the end that
the Constitution, the; ulwark of our liberty,
and the highest authority in the land, might
he maintained unimpaired, and handed down
to posterity the same pure and beneficent in
strutnent transmitted te . • us by our fittheis. The
Radical party, on the other hand, has signal
! ized its career by innumerable violation 4 of
1 these definition,. Founded upon a direct de
-1 fiance of the binding decision of the Su
preme Court, it disphiyed its hostility to law
by sending. armed emissaries into the South
I and the Territories to create insurrections
among their people. • It announced its
tention to overturn the guaranteed rights of
nearly half the • States in the Union, and
elected a President upon that idea. Having
by it.. vindictiveness 'and sectional agitation
accomplished its purpose of driving the
South into secession, it availed itself of the
war which followed to brealt, down every ban
ner of constitutional law that stood in the
war of it, ambition. Free'speech and free
dom of opinion were ruiltha,sly trampled
under foot, thousands of honest citizens east
into dungeons for Tin other crime than daring
to utter what the ruling powers at the time
did; not approve, States divested of their
most sacred rights, civil law made to give
Way to. military, •appropriations voted with
out the slightest regard to legal restrictions,
and a reign of terror, corruption' and ex
travagance continued tilt six years that has
few parallels in the world's history. Not
satisfied with this infamous record, it has
gone a step further, and to•duv keeps out of
the Union ten Stites that are nq much enti
tied to representation 'as Pennsylvania or
\ew• York, in disregard of the plainest pro
vkions of the Constitution, rind to the ruin
of the be.t intrret.t , of the entire nation.
Are we not right, then, in claiming, as we
often have, that the real "disloyal" party of
Ameriva ig the Ittaieal One, which Int, done
so much to we the ties of public affec
tion, bring our institution. into contempt,
and injure the peoerity of tire• country?
Front tie• tiro moment of it. inception
down to the lore-ent dty, it hay heott the
fonleqt enemy of everythinz that is ••
to the spirit or I{.2publivan government.
Born in eritne,mirsed by turmoil, and trained
to corruption, if Plovitlenec had been dis
posed to wreak Ilk vengeance, upon the
'United, States for some awful , iolation ;of
His will, ht• coald not have sent a more
blasting curse than the advent of the Itadir;al
party, and the time is not distant when ita
memory will Ix• regarded by the mass of the
people with the same horror they would en
tertain thr some great natural convulsion or
terrible pestilence.
We hope our cotemporary, in its future
allusions to the " loyal men" of the land
will take pains to give the expression its
fit application.
IT is unnecessary- that we should be con-,
standy repeating the fart, to satisfy the pub
lic that the Observer is the most largely cir
culated weekly in the county. - Every person
who is acquainted with our people is aware
that in whatever portion of the county lie
visits the Obseryer has more readers than
any other paper. We make the assertion
without hesitation or Par of contradiction,
that an advertisement inserted in our col
umns will reach one-third more people than
the same iu either of the other county pa
pers. The rapidity with which our subscrip
tion list is increasing leads us to believe that
before the year ends we w ill have twice as
large a list as the most widely circulated of
our cotemporaries.
1 • WRodell
The lecture of Wendel: iir tps - on:
I Lost Arts, postponed froth Wednesday even
ing on account of his fitilure to reach the city
in time, was • given on Saturday-evening;
Mr. Phillips explaining that the cause of his
:disappointment was owing to erroneous in
formation relative to the. railroad connections,
:It was a learned,uble and eloquent attempt to
show- that nith all its boasting the present
generation has made but little advancement
-over the ancients in the knowledge of the
sciences, and in many respects has even fall
'en behind titem. • The 411bject was entirely
new to a vast majority or the audience. and
the large' amount of valuable information
.given, the novelty of its statements, the ele
gant style in which it was prepared, and the
graceful and easy manner, of the speaker,
gave the lecture a fascination such as few
in any of our courses have possessed. It
occupied about an hour In its deliyery, and
Was listened to with the closest attention.
At the termination of the regular lecture,
as previously announced, and at the request
of many of lur Radical citizens, Mr. Phillips
spoke about an hour on * political toples, dur
ing which he proved himself to be even a
more effective orator than before. The re
sult showed that the Radicals who bad drawn
him out "reckoned without their boTit."
About half of the hour was occupied in a
review of the events and causes of the war,
from an Abolition stand-point, and' the bal
ance to unsparing criticisms upon the past
and probable record of the Republican party.
He fired hot shot, right and left, claimed that
the Radical masses were again to be betrayed,
alluded sneeringly to "the late lamented
martyr," and castigated Grant with unrelt nt
ing severity, and to Considerable length. No
man, he declared, who was too timid or ig
norant to give his views on public questions,
was fit to be or would•be chosen next Presi
dent of the United States! The Grant peo
ple were indignant beyond description, the
anti-Grants were, delighted, a good many
hesitating ones Were placed more a-straddle
the ferice Than ever, and the Democrats felt
tickled And displayed their emotions by
manifestations. anything but consolatory to
their opponents.
Mr. Phillips is a medium sized man, of
fifty-live or sixty years of age, pleasing ap
pearance, and mild and attractive manners.
Ile wears light side whiskers, and his gray
hair is so thin that it leaves the larger part
of his heti(' exposed. His manner of speak
ing is much like Edward Everett's, though
his sentences are more nervous and prepared
Without any attempt at polish. He uses no
notes, makes few gestures, moves about but
little on the stage, and generally speaks_in a
frank, conversational tone, regardless of pro
during an effect. After hearing him ou Sat
urday we wonder no longer at his wide re
putation. His opinions we of course abomi
nate as fill good citizens should, but candor
compels us to say that we have heard but
one or two public speakers who approached
him in the peculiar qualities which - f s 'o to
make up genuine oratory.

The gassiiks of the city have had il rare mor
sel to wet their appetites upon in an incident
that occurred on Saturday- afternoon, and
came to a climax on Tuesday before Justice
Curtze. It seems that a young man named'
Milo Pelton Nils been keeping company for
some time with a daughter of S. Finch, to the
intense annoyance of the latter individual.
On the afternoon named Pelton hired a ear- .
riage, and, accompanied by Oliver Kennedy, -
went to the lady's residence fin the purpose
of taking her out riding. Another lady, it is
said, was to go with them, and the circum
stances look much as if a runaway match
was on the tapis, though the parties deny
the gentle impeachment The irascible papa
got wind of the. transaction, and bursting
upon the parties with a brick-bat in his
hand, produced .a consternation in their
midst easier to imagine than describe. Pelton
took to his-heels, followed cloSely by several
brick-bats, and Finch, as one of the witnesses
testified, having applied an umbrella to his
daughter, forced her to return home, where
she remains a victim of "arbitary arrest"
The up-shot of the affair was t suit brought
by Pelton against Finch for as4ault and bat
tery, which, as all such cases do, attracted a
crowd of. interested-spectators. The -.Court,
Justice Curtze presiding, sensibly pat both
parties under bonds to keep the . peace, and
here the matter rests until the next act.
TUE C. of DEnuati.—The much talked
about and anxiously nwnited trial 'of Julius
Degmeir, the "loyal" reverend, Indicted for
embezzlement of public funds, on oath of J.
W. Douglass, Esq., Colleator of Internal Rev
enue, commenced on Tuesday morning, and
has been in progress during, the week be
fore the U. S. District court_ The main
witnesses on behalf of the Government are
Mr. Douglass and the employees in his office,
whose testimony is exceedingly: damaging
to the prisoner. The rulings of the
Court -have 'invariably been against the
defence, and there is a common belief - that
Lis conviction is nlinost certain, though the
sentiment of mercy, in consideration of his
past position, and the temptations placed be
fpre him, finds many advocates.
Mr. Degmeir has been confined in the
county jail ever since his last arrest, from
width he is taken to the Court room at the
opening of each day's proceedings. He looks
depressed and haggard, and it is plain that
he . suffers exerutiating mental agony. ..1
man of education and cultivated - taste, his
position is deplorable indeed, and furniShei
a sad commentary on the frailties of human
character, and the .chants of earthly thr
establishment, at the corner of State and
Twelfth streets, continues to occupy its posi
tion, so long maintained, as the leading man
ufactory in North-Western Pennsylvania.
The dull season which has stopped so many
of its rivals, or obliged them to work on re
duced time, seems to have effected it but
slightly, and it. maintains its prospirity with
little perceptible diminution. The concern
makes a speciality of - the celebrated Brad
ley' engine, which is every daygrowiog more
in favor with machinists, and bids fair to re
volutionize the thole steam power system.
His a compotmil or• double cylinder, using
Vie steam twice. and the manufacturers war

cent. more 100 er than the ordinary single.

to the Bradley, we earnestly recianmend it
as well worth examination. Besides these
engines, the comp Any continue to fill orders

To yin very great sorrow we are obliged
this week to part company with a number of
dearly beloved patrons who have been upon
our list several-years. ' They are of the class
who believe in taking a paper for the sake of
encouraging it, never for a moment deeming
that it is of the slightest - importance to Ru
ttish the editor with a cent of cash. The
faithful fellows have stuck to us "closer than
a brother," and Would probably continue to
do so fur life. We have too much charity,
though, to impose upon them any longer the
heavy burden of our "support," and so part
company with them sadly and reluctantly.
Profitable patrons, adieu! May your sleep be
disturbed with no visions of gaunt and ghost
ly printers clamoring for
,their pay ; and in
the hotter clime to which you are &mad
may there be no little printers' imps to pinch
your skin and with their tiny, red
hot forks, for the sins done in the flesh!
"Fare thee well, and if forever,
Still forever fare thee well!"

CORRESPONDENCE.—The follottifig highly
interesting letter comes to us from a uew cor
respondent. The writer develope4 a striking
capacity for the epistolary art :
Mit. EDITOR :—Excuse the liberty I take
in nthires.sing you this note, but thinking you
'ould like to hear front this remote part of
the earth.
I take the liberty to addre's•.3 you this, and
trust that it will be acceptable.
- Although there is nothing of particular In
terest-to write, however I will endeavor to
make it.sufficiently interesting to publish.
At present we are having miserable mud
dy wet weather; it is bad on all kinds of
This Ls it great wood country but they are
fast cutting it off. There is one gentleman
in this town that intends to get between
three and four thousand cords of wood out
to the Railroad this winter. It looks waste

Yours truly.
P. S: If this proves of sufficient interest
to you, I will in my - nest endeavor to write
you a longer and I think a better one.
LIBERAL OFTER.—"3terrill's Two Horse
Store" offers to every person buying over
five (5) dollars worth of goods • at that estab
lishment a present valued from fifty cents to
thirty (30) dollars. They have selected from
their stock•a large number of articles, con
sisting of cloaks, shawls, dress patterns, Bal
moral and hOop skirts, &c., to. be given to
their customers. To prevent partiality being
shown each package is numbered, and the
customer selecting a number secures the
package with the same number. The 4xic-
CeS.4 this novel plan of advertising has met
with during the past week has compelled
Messrs. Merrill, & Co. to add a large number
of new presents, and we advise all intending
to purchase dry goods to test this plan, as it
is one of the best inducements yet (*red.
Card of Thanks.
The writer, who speaks for many of his
fellow-citizens, desires to acknowledge,, the
obligations which this city and its people owe
the zealous and indefatigable pastor of St.
Patrick's, Rev. Thomas Carroll. Since his
advent a reformation and improvement have
been effected among his people which-chul
leng,es admiration ; and although no flowerets
are strewn in his pathway, the prayers of
crateful citizens are sowing the seeds of
flowers that will have an_ everlasting bloom,
and be a crown of recompense for him in a
better and brighter wnrld. It is only there
merits like his can be rewarded. He has grap
pled with and banished from families and
from our streets the demon of intemperance.
lle is giving the rising generation under his
charge the blessings of education that will
tit them in brave the cares and _make
them good citizens and good ehristians.—
Nine hundred communicants on Christmas
day and five hundred on New 'Year's day, at
test his efficiency, the moral improvement
of his people, and their cordial co-operation
with him. There is no home to-day in Erie,
no not one home, where his benign and sal
utary influence is not felt and acknowledged.
In a few years his work will be indestructi
ble. Let us, therefore, as people •who feel
proud of him, greet him, bless him, and re
turn thanks to him, in the beginning of this
new year, 1868. GRATITUDE.
