.-er I should assist hi saving the remnant of you from the wreck. "I have chosen the latter. I shall send this address to every hill and corner of the State, to the citizen and soldier, at home or in prison, and shall send with it my prayers to Almighty God to arrest them in the path way of blood and ruin. Why trust Davis longer. Had he twice our present resources he would still fail. With success he would be a despot. But the whole thing is tutnb ling to pieces, Soldiers are leaving disgust ed and disheartened, and whole States have gone back to their home in the national gal axy. Maryland and Delaware will never again be shaken. Kentucky has entrench. ed herself in the Union behind a wall of bayonets in the hands of her own sturdy sons Missouri is as firmly set in the national gal. axy, as Massachusetts. Tennessee, tempest tossed and bolt riven, under the guidance of her great pilot, steers for her old tnooring, and will be safely anchored before the dense fall ; while the rave of light from the old ' North State, flashing out fitfully from her darkness across the troubled waves show that she stirs, 19 not lost, but is struggling to rejoin her sisters. "None of these States will ever join the South again. Then, with crippled armies, with devastated fields—with desolate cities. disheartened soldiers, and worse than all with weak and corrupt leaders what hope is left to the remaining States, but especially to poor, oppressed and down-trodden Arkan sas 7 None! Better vet our brothers home while they are left to us. Open - the return of husbands, fathers and sons, and hind up the broken links of the old Union. The people must act to do this. I tell you now, in grief and pain, that the leaders don't care for your blood. Your sufferings move them not. The tears and wails of anguished and bereaved ones fall on hearts of flint. While they can make a dollar or wear an epaulet they are content. Finally',' with a grief stricken and sorrowful heart, I implore mothers, sisters, wives and daughters to as sist by all their arts in saving their loved ones from this terrible scourge„ ere ruin over takes you and them irretrievably. While God gives me strength, daunted by nn peril, and swerved by no consideration of self, I shall give you my feeble aid." Mr. Gantt's conclusion is: "The sooner we lay down our arms, and quit this hope less struggle, the sooner .the days of our prosperity will return." So far as Arkansas Is concerned, he thinks the Kest course for the people, through meetings and petition, is to instruct Hon•.• \V. K. Sebastian to re sume his seat in the IT. S. Senate. as the first step of the State's return to allegiance. dt;literatd, CARLISLE, PA. Friday, Nov. 27, 1863. S. M.

W. GANTT It is the appeal of a penitent Rebel—one who has got into the "last ditch"—and he admits that the only way to escape from it is to repent and sub mit toile General Government. Ile gives a correct portraiture of that infamous traitor and tyrant, Jeff. Davis. We hope that other rebels will look upon it, and profit by its hideous outlines. The rebellion, in the calm opinion of this repentant rebel, is about played out. To carry it on still further, will be the abomination of desolation" to tie whole Southern breed of traitors—it will cut tliefi~ up " root rtilitbraneli." - There id iio help, save in submission to the laws. And he submits now. We commend this Appeal to our Northern croakers, who think the rebellion cannot he crushed out. They can learn from it what has been done, as acknowledged by one of the late rebel leaders, whose testimony cannot be controverted. M.N4THANIEL R. SMITH/MS EST, lately elected a Union Representative in Congress from the State of Delaware, was for smue years a resident or Carlisle. Ile was, if we mistake not, a graduate of Dickinson Col lege, and for a long time was connected with the late Judge REED in his celebrated Law Sahool, an institution in which wer taught some of the most eminent lawyers of the day, Gov. Cumns among the rest. Mr. Smit hers is a man of decided ability, a ripe scholar, a ready writer, and a sound constitutional lawyer. During the memorable Harrison campaign of 1840, some of the productions of his pen graced the columns of the Carlisle Herald. He will make an able and influen tial member of Congress, and we ceingnatu• late him upon his advancement. His native State has reason to be proud of him. TODACCO CROP.—In consequence of the early frost in Kentucky and Tennessee, and the supposed injury to the tobacco crop, the price has risen in Louisville three and four' dollars per hundred weight. This will, ke' far, be good news to a number of farmers in Pennsylvania, who have planted larger quan tities of this article the pr& sent season than ever before. In many parts of the State, so great has been the demand for lumber, to form tobacco sheds, and for men to construct them, that the supply has fallen quite short, and every conceivable expedient has had to adopted. Whether for better or for worse, there is no question as to the fact that Penn sylvania is about to become a rival to Mary land and Virginia in the cultivation of the weed, and the chief wonder seems to be why it has thus been neglected so long. The greal objection, heretofore, to raising tobacco in this State was, that our climate was too cold, and that we could not compete with more Southern localities. In Connec ticut, however, which has a much colder cli mate than we have, the farmers have grown tobacco for years, and have produced most excellent crops, which have paid well. As the price of tobacco has, within the past two years, "more than doubled, we think the ex. periment of raising the crop should, at least to some extent, be adopted by our farmers. Ate - Lie:a. Gen. Winfield Seott voted the straight Union ticket in New York at the recent election. Glorious old veteran ! What a contrast he presents in his declining years to !,,he • poor miserable old man •of Wheatfield, who argued that the Constitution gave mi power to punish the treason of Jeff. Davis and his compeers. TRIUMPH OF FREE LABOR The fiat of the pitople of the Slave States of Maryland, Missouri and Delaware has gone forth, and the curse which has envel oped'those States since their formation will as quietly a d peacefully recede from their limits as the sinking sun retires to rest.— Emancipation of the slaves in those States is firmly fixed, and the evil which, for half a century, has agitated their people, by this decree, will pas 4 away into the abyss of time, and relieve them of the horrible incubus which has so long haunted and afflicted them. Two years ago, slavery appeared to he firmly riveted upon those States; the masses have seen the ruin and desolation, the wan ton cruelly and the horrible rapine which it has caused, and they have, with the voice of a large majority, determined that its baneful influen6es &hall be removed from their pre cincts forever, and that freedom shall reign whore dark, diabolical slavery was wont to gambol and concoct the destruction of our Government. How the sentiments of the masses have changed I Two years ago, every man who believed slavery to be an evil, was pointed uut as an Abolitionist, and to be pointed out as an Abolitionist was to he branded with )(hum dreadful to contemplate. Now the tune has changed; the feelings of the peo pie have drifted to the proper point, and the man who then dared not utter his sentiments against a debased and accursed institution, can now stand up in " high places," and be proud that ho is an Abolitiouist. And why should he not be? When the owners of slaves become advocates ofi-abolitionism, is it possible that men whose every effort and every interest is identified with free labor, should contend against it 7 It cannot be. Free labor and slave labor have ever been antag,ontistical, and the free white laborin min, who is in favor of slavery, no more or derstands his real interests than the man who claims to be a moralist, and yet opposes religion. We have always contended that the aboli : lion of slavery would open up the South to free white labor, and free white labor will (lisp, se of the negro. It is the tree negro that is colonized in Africa, not the slave.— Emancipate them all, and all that will be necessary will he to transport the natural increase, and free negroes do not increase so rapidly as slaves. In fifty or seventy-five years, every negro in the United States would be removed. ----How- many -ingenious. prophets;l-The-nnut break of the rebellion, prophesied that slave ry would go down with the effort to establish a government in harmony with its wants? Men who now antagonize the Administration for the sake of mere party, in any number, openly and violently avowed it as their sol emn conviction ; and yet with the record before them, they do every thing in their power to discourage the men of the border States, who have at least an opportunity of being practical, in working what they so vehemently claimed would be the natural consequence. These very prophets are now loudest in their demands for " the -Constitu tion as it is and the Union as it was." A mere catch phrase; nevertheless, if it means anything, it means protection to slavery, and a continual antagonism to free ial or. Well have the advocates of free labor in the bor. r States done their work. Noble, indeed, -is- the-ex ant ple,-witioh-- they-havie set-to- their brethren who are yet enthralled. And from henceforth freedom shall predominate in the United States ; slavery, peace-meal, shall disappear from our escutcheon, and with a bright future before us—with a new wreath of laurels upon the benign brow of: the chaste Goddess of Liberty—we will sail on the abyss of time, fur all ages, a great and powerful people. *7The gallant Major Harry White, while in serquice in the United States Army, last year, was elected to the Senate of Pennsyl vania by the people of Indiana and Arm strong counties. Resigning his military office, he served' honorably and faithfully in the Legislature last winter. Re-entering the army in the spring, he was taken prisoner at Winchester, and is now Or of our many suffering brothers in the filthy Libby prison, at. Richmond. Ilor is a Republican, and makes one of the Union majority in the Sen ate. Should he not be exchanged, that body will Stan 116 to 16 Unless one of the Op position Senators has the honor to withhold his vote, or vete so as to aid the admitted majority to re-organize the body, there can be no change of officers. Specker Penney, of Allegheny, is already chosen, and the other officers will servo until their succes sors are duly qualified. s•Both branches of the new Maryland Le ,, islature have a clear majority in favor of calling a Convention to make Maryland a free State. Thus the people of the South, by their own mad and wicked folly, have sealed the doom of slavery years before the worst enemies of the "peculiar institution" ever dreamed of Not only Maryland, but Delaware, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and perhaps North Carolina, will, by the own free will of their people, speedily abolish the foul and corrod ing blotch of slavery. Virginia and t o cot ton States must then succumb. INTERNAL REVENUE.-It may not be gen erally known, that the Commissioner of In ternal Revenue has decided that a promissory note for the payment of twenty dollars or less, is subject to stamp duty by the act of March. 3d, 1863, under the head of " Inland Bills of Exchange." The penalty for violating the stamp act is from $lO to $2OO, and in addi tion notes, &c., are worthless without the ptoper stamp being affixed. Our readers will see the necessity of complying with the law. 12M.EGYPT REDEEMED.—The Southern tier of counties in 111., known as "Egypt," which heretofore voted almost unanimously pro-slavery Democratic, and gave a majori ty of over 5,000 against Lincoln in 1860, gave 4 Republican Union majority of 579 at the late election in that State—a gain of 6, 769. Last year the Copperheads had e ma jority of - 4,133. And so the whirligig of Time brings in his revenges. Alexander R. Stephens on Southern Grievances • The folloling speech of Mr. Stephens, the present Vice Presidentl'of the Rebel Confederacy, was delivered in the Georgia State Convention, in January, 1861. It will be remetnbered that . Mr. Stephens, just be fore that time, made a Union speech to the people. The language of this address to the Convention is even stronger than of-his more famous speech. It is a crushing reply to those Northern sympathizers with the rebels, who are constantly proclaiming that "the South" was injured, and came short of its rights in the Union. Mr. Stephens said : "This step (Lf secession,) once taken, can never be recalled ; and all the baneful and withering consequences that must follow will rest on the Convention for all coining time. When we and our posterity hall see our lovely South desolate I by the demon of war, which this act of yours will inevitably invite awl cull . fiwth ; when our green fields of waving harvest shall be trodden down by the murderous soldiery and fiery car of war sweeping over our land ; our temples of jus tice laid in ashes ; all the horrors and deso lations of war upon us ; who bit' this Con vention will be held responsible fur it? and who but him who shall have given his vote for this unwise and ill-tim-d measure, as I honestly think anti believe, shall be held to strict account for this suicidal act by the present generation, and probably cursed and execrated by posterity fOr all coining time, for the wild and desolating ruin that w.II inevitably follow this act you now propose to perpetrate TILE NORTE BIASIELESS " Pause, I entreat you, and consider for a moment what reasons you can give that will even satisfy yourselves in calmer moments —What reason can you give to your fellow sufferers in the calamity that it will bring upon us 7They will be the calm and deliber ate judges,in the casa ? and what cause or one overt act can you name or point to, on which to rest the plea of justtficati•m? ‘% hat right has the North assailed ? What inter est of the South has been invaded ? What justice has been denied ? and what claim, founded' in justice and right, has been with held'? Can either - of you to-day name one governmental act of wrong, deliberately and purposely done by the Government of Wash ington, of which the South has aright to complain 7 1 challenge the answer. While on the other hand, let me show the facts (and believe me, ,gentlemen, I am not here the advocate of the North ; but I am here the frielid, the firm friend and lover of the South and hpr institutions, and for this rea sou I speak thus plainly and faithfully for yours, mine, and every other man's interests, the words a' truth and soberness) of which I wish you to judge, and I will only state facts, which are clear and undeniable, and which now stand as records authentic in the history of our country.- • " When we of the South demanded the slave trade, or' the importation of Africans for the cultivation of our lands, did they not yield the right for twenty years? When we asked a three fifths representation in Con gress for our slaves, was it not granted 7- I,s 7 hen we asked and demanded the return of any fugitive froin justice, or the recovery of those persons owing labor or allegiance. was it not incorporated in the Constitution, and again ratified and strengthened by the fugi tive slave law of 1850? But do you reply that in many instances they have violated this compact, and have not been faithful to their 'engagements 7 As individual and lo cal communities they may have done so, but not by the sanction of Government, for that has always been true to Southern interests. "Again, gentlemen, look at another tact; when we have asked that more territory shot.ld he added, that we might spread the institution of slavery, have t h ey not yielded to our dernantl.; in giving us Florida, Louis iana and Texas, out of which four States have been carved, and ample terr i t o ry f or four more to . be added . _in duo .Litne,if you r . - by Ibis unwise and impolitic act, do not de stroy this hope, and, perhap., by it use all, and hare your last slave wrenched from you by stern military rule, as South A tnerica and Mexico were; or by the vindictive decree of a universal emancirdion, which may rea sonably be expected to follow ? WHAT THE SOUTH HAD IN THE UNION "But, again, gentleman, what have we to gain by this proposed Chan:ze of in:r rela tion to the General Government We have always had the control, awl can y e t, if Nc remain in it, and are as united as we have been. We have had a noijoriiy Pe.r Notts chosen from the South, as well as the control and management of most of those chosen from the North. We have had sixty years of Southern Presidents to their twenty four, thus controlling the executive depart ment. So of the judges of the Supreme Court, we have had eighteen from the S, nth, and but eleven from the North ; although nearly four-fifths of the judit ial business has arisen in the free States, yet a majority of the court has always been front the South. This we have required, so as to guard against any interpretation of the Constitution unfa vorable to us. lit like manner, we have been equally watchful to guard our interests in the legislative branch of Government. In choos- ing the presiding presidents (pro. lent.) of the Senate. we have had twenty-lour to their eleven. Speakers of the House, we have had twenty three, and they twelve. While the majority of the Representatives, from their greater population, have always been from the North, yet we have so generally secured the Speaker, because he, ton greater extant, shapes and controls the legislation of the country. "Nor have we had less control in every other department of the General Govern. ment. Attorney Generals we have had fair teen, while the North have had but five. Foreign ministers we have had eighty-six, and they but fifty-fimr. While three•fourths of the business which demands diplomatic agents abroad is clearly from the free States, from their greater commercial interests, yet we have had the principal maimies, so as to secure the world markets for cottonno bacco, and sugar, on the betit possible terms. We have had a vast majority of the higher offices of both army and navy, while a larg. er proportion of the soldiers and sailors were drawn from the North. Equally so of clerks, auditors, and comptrollers fil ling , the executive department, the records allow for the last fifty years that of three thousand thus employed we ha. e had more than two thirds of the same, while we have but one third of the white population of the republic. .‘ Again, look at another item, and one 1573 1 assured, in which we have a great and vital interest ; it is that of revenue, or means of supporting Government,. Prma official doon• means we learn that, a fraction over three fourths of the revenue collected for the support of Government has uniformly been raised from the North. "Pause now while you can, gentleman, and contemplate carefully and candidly 'base portant items. Leaving out of view, for the present, the countless millipos of (Lillian you must expend in a war with the North; with Lena of thonstur!e of your sons and brothers slain in battle, and offered up as sacrifices upon the altar otyour ambition—and for what I we ask again. Is it for the overthrow of the American Government, established by our common ancestry, cemented and built up by their sweat end blood, and founded on the broad principle of right, justice and huthanity? And as such, I must declare here, as I have often done before. and which lute beenrri: peated by the greatest and wisest of gatemen and patriot* in this and other :antis, that it is the hest and freest Government—the most equal in its rights, the most' just in its - decisions, the most lenient in its measures,, and the most as piring in its principles to elevate the race of men that the sun of _Heaven ever shone upon. .Now, for you to attempt to overthrow such a Gov ernment as this, under which we have lived for more than three-quarters of a century— in which we have gained our , wealth. our, standing as a nation, our domestic safety while the elements of peril are around us, with peace and tranquility, accompanied with unbounded prosperity and rights unassailed —is the height of madness, folly, and wicked ness to which I can neither lend my sanction nor my vote." Military Claims The order issued by Gen. Couch recently, instructing Capt. Denney to adjudicate cer tain military claims in Franklin and adjacent counties, has been revoked by the Secretary of War, for the reason that they cannot he paid without Congressional legislation. That there is no want of disposition on the part of the Government to settle and pay these claims we are well assured. Gov. Thomas, now M. C. frim the Washington District in Maryland, where there there has been more wide spread desolation than here, by military occupation, recently visited Washington to have an order made for the payment of these claims; but it was ascertained that they could not be paid without legislation. The regu lations are justly s , rict as to the settle rent of all accounts pertainint, to the army, and such accounts must come within the pros embed forms, as the laws are now, before they can be settled in the accounting depar meets. For this reason, Governor Thomas withdrew his request for an order, and will present a bill to the next Congress, providing for the prompt and equitable adjudication and Payment of all these claims. We know that the officers or the Government all recog nize the justice of the demands of our peo ple, and we doubt not that the necessary leg isiat ion will be had very early in the session. . The uniform of of Gen. Couch to do justice to the people of the border sin .e he has been in command here, merit the `tvartn est appreciation alike of the people and the government. While ever sem pu outil y faith ful to the anvornmenh he has been mindful, of the just claims of hose who have. without inmtiry as to compensation or forms, con tributed their property to the army in times of-peril ; and his order was but a just recog nition of what was the from the government to the people. That it has besp revoked, for want of power to settle the claims when ad jested, implies no censure upon Gen. Couch, nor does it imply an unwillingness on the part of the government. to meet their claims when the proper authority is conferred. The adjudicntion of them, under Gen. Couch's order, wt.s arrested, doubtless, for the reason that con,ress will provide a definite system of settlement which 'nay require the re-ad justment of there. We feel assured that it will not ha long delayed. Capt. Denney, who has had charge of these claims, has won the confidence of the people by - courte7, - intrtgylt rand prom Inn PFIS ;- and all hottest claimants will be glad t have him re-assigned to the duty when the neces• retry provision shell have been m axle for set tleme n t.—Frankl Iripository.

Nathaniel B. Smithers, Esq., was the 'Union and M. Charles Brown, the Democratic candidate. Several days pre vious, Geri'. Schenck issued an order requir ing all parties, whose loyalty should be chal lenged, to take an oath of allegiance. On the appearance of this order the friends of Mr. Brown withdrew from the contest the day before the election, alleging that the required oath is not recognized by the laws or conAilution of Delaware. Mr. Sinithers was, of course, elected. New Castle county gives Smithers 4,011 votes, and Brown 6 voteA. In six districts of Kent county, Sin idlers has 1,275 votes; Brown none.

It is, without doubt, the best recipe for curing meat extant, and is just now in season :] OUR RECEIPT FOR CURING MEAT. To one gallon of water, take 1,1 lbs. of silt, t lb. of sugar, a 07.. of saltpetre, I oz. of potash. In this ratio the pickle to be increased to any quantity desired. Let these be' boiled together, until all the dirt from the sugar rises to the top and is skimmed off. Then throw it into a tub to cool, and when cold, pour it over your beef or pork, to remain the canal time. say four or five weeks. The meat must be well covered with pickle, and should not be put down for at least two days after killing, during which time it should be slightly sprinkled with powdered saltpetre, which removes all the surface blood, &c., leaving the meat fresh and clean. Some omit boiling the pickle, and find it to answer well ; though the opere,tent of boiling purifies the pickle by tbrAing of the dirt always to be found in salt and sugar.
