'" Let tyrants tremble when the peoplc
speak," has been a favorite . inscription
on Democratic banners, during the cam
, paiga. Well, the people have spoken.
In New England, in the Middle States.
and in the great North West the people
have been speaking in tones loud enough
to be heard the wide world over. But
strange to say the so called tyrants are
not trembling very perceptibly. Indeed
they seem rather less shaky now than
before the people spoke. The aforesaid
people appear to be rather in''atuated
This seem to have a fondness for the
"tyrants" who have rescued their Gov
ernment from the bands of traitors; wl:o
have -striven faithfully to maintain its
hiiiner; who have put' forth their best of
to protect the lives and property of
loyal men and who are pledged to use all
the resources of the nation to overcome
a rebellion that threatens to destroy be
last refuge of civil liberty on the globe
This may seem rather a strange_ fancy tc
politicians cif Copperhead proclivitiet- but
nevertheless last Tuesday gave proof tha
it existed. Couldn't our Democratic
friends improve their motto by giving ii
thus: -"Let traitors tremble when the
people speak."
"Conic back McClellan, come back,
Como bliel:; 4 !- plaintively wailed out the
Chairman of the McClellan Clunn
first speech to that now defunct organi
zation. We thought at the time, tha
his earnest appeals were unnecessary.—
The redoubtable General never was in
the habit of getting too far to the front
and we didn't think th it he would ex
hibit any greater propensity to go forward
in his political campaign than he did
when he was on the Peninsula. At all
events he is " back" far enough now to
gratify the most backward of his friends.

such an extent that we aro inclined to think

At the time of going to press but few
returns have reached us. These are
sufficient however to indicate that Mr.
Lincoln is re elected by a most over
whelming majority. In addition to the

turns from either. The only States
which are claimed by the Democracy arc
tientueky and New Jersey, but even in
these there are as many chances for us
as for them. A more brilliant and tri

Union we could not have desired; a more
overwhelming defeat for the covert foes
of the Government we could not even
have wished fur. We give below the re

no one could either fear or hope to see shaken

.during some temporary crisis . ,-'was in the
common estimation, placed beyond discus

sily made evident. A State never is,' and

fundamental principle of the' social:. union

portions of the community with the subver

calculations, and . .Wlth which their hopes and
aims had become identified.
"Bret when the questioning y these funda

ease, or salutary medicine but) the habitual
condition of the body politic r and when all
the violent animosities are called forth,,which
spring habitually- from such a situation the
State is virtually in a position of civil war,
and can serer long remain free from it in act
and fact." . .
The applicatioo of all this to our only con
dition is very obvious; and - M -- fact there
could hardly be a more striking proof of its
nth and sagacity than the actual condition
of our affairs. We owe the break up of the
Union and the civil war which is now rag
ing, to the persistence and impunity with
which the validity Of the Constitution, 10 II
bond of union, has been questioned ; and for
the last thirty years we were. in feet, •' vir
tually- in a position of civil war," from the
moment that large numbers of persons a
dopted Calhoun's theory of State rig,hts—
from the moment it is admitted that ant•
fraction of people can dissolve; the Union

my harm as a law.
The great end and aim of this war, there
lire, is to assure the stabitity of this llopub
ie by placing the authority of the Ginstitu-
Lion forever hereafter beyond dsseuhsion.
What we want to insure our national life is
"something Kqtled—something permanent,
and not to be (=lint in quevion." W e want to
have the ComAitution of the United States
so cemented—so solidly bated—that nu !lean
the country shall ever think or talk of its
overthrow, or the eseape of any portion o
the Union from its jurisdiction, except as an
bile dream and we believe the Ameriean
people are firmly resolved that this shall be,
and that whatever is ,necessary to secure it
shall be forthcoming. For; utdess We can
achieve this, all intelligent me4erceive;that
the same fate awaits us which bas overtaken
all other States which have once lost and
faded to restore that "something settled,"
viz: to use 3lr. Mill's words, "to become
after a longer or briefer period of decline

Barn? by (i,ppolicade,.—Th,
Joirrnut says that the barn of \I r. George
Lang. in Walker township, in that county,
was burned to the ground on Wednesday
night lust, together with his entire stock ,if
grain, which haul just been got in. There
can be no doubt that this has been the work
of-an incendiary-, - There was n large rnion
meeting held at MeConnellstown that even
ing, which :Mr. Lang had taken groat pains
to make a creditable affair, being a strong
Union man, and consequently the feeling
against luiuu, among the copperheads infest
ing that township, was very bitter. Short
ly after the uu•eting wit: organized the cry
of tire was heard, :aid the barn, about quar
ter of a mile distant,. was discovered to be
wrapped in flames. The loss is a severe one
to Mr. Lang, and it is loped that the -per
petrators of this diabolical outrage will be
brought to justice. We are glad to state
that some of the most influential McClellan
men of that township, have come out boldly
for Lincoln since this outrage, and deClare
they will support no party which resorts to
such acts.
LIR TELEGRAPH.—It is twenty-seven
years since the telegraph was first put to prac

toy. ,13y 1851, however, 7000 miles were in
operation. Since then full 21)11,000 Miles of
telegraph have been called iffto existence
throughout the world. The wire has pene
trated to almost every region of the world,
braving all climotes.

at is proposed that the "Upper House" of
the Federal. Log:slater() shall eonsist,of sev
enty-six members, of whom - twenty four
shall be from Canada East, twenty-four
from Canada:West, twenty-four from - Nova

NOva , ScoCia,--New Brunswick and Prince
EdWard's the first named is to. have eleven, -
the second ten and the third three. The
members of .this body are to be nominated
by the Crown, and are to hold office.for life.
The representation- in -the "Lower House"
is to be in proportion to population. The
legislative power for all the colonies is thus
to be concentrated in-a central parliament,
the scat of which will probably be at Ottowa,
the-new capital of the Conadas. Each colo
ny is to have a local legislature, with limited
powers. The Governor-General of this
Confederation -is to be appointed by the
Crown, but is to- be advised by a Ministry
selected in accordance with the views of the
minority in the Federal Parliament. This
is merely the outline of the scheme, the de-
Xtils being thus far unsettled.

The engineer is not dead, although seri
ously injured. Ibis escape from instant death
is a miracle. The bodies of Mr. Clark and
a fireman were found in the creek. The cow
cateher lay on the head of the fireman, whose
body was consid'erably mutilated. The en
ginticr,s face and head are badly cut, and
hi: body considerably injured There were
many others injured—thirteen at least.
Most of them were brought on' in a succeed
mg train, some being left at Port Jervis,
Paterson, and others corning through.
Our informant was standing up in the last
sleeping ear at the time of the accident, and
was thrown with considerable force against
the arms of the seats, but fortunately with
out serious injury. Other passengers in the
same ear, to the number of tn•enty, were
sealed, and nwived no serious injury.
There is a feeling of indignation among
the passengers for the supprci s ion by the
company's operators of telegraphic despatch
es apprising their friends of the accident and
of their safety or injuries, as the ease might
htve been.
There wit's:at-one time a report that a wom
an wa, beneath the wreck, from the fact that
an infant about ten month; old was timed
on the track the scene of the disaster,
whose mother could not be found. It subse
/Le:fitly appeared that die child belonged to a
German woman, a passenger, who threw her
infant out of the ear window to save it when
the accident occurred. The woman was af
terwards foimd stunned, and 'placed . under
good care.
A niong the passengers were some nineteen
young men belonging to a cricket club in
Port Jervis. They hid been on - an excur
sion to Port Deposit, and were 'returning.
Ono of the number, Mr. Arthur J. Bach,
whose death was reported in yesterday's
Ilan u,n who was in the act of taking a
vote for President in the first passenger car,
was - fife only owe - of the party killed.
