The Hon. John Cessna, ofßedford,
Pa , long and widely known as a leading
Democrat, in a recent speechodescribed a
kind of people whom.he had observed in
Southern Pennsylyania. We, Jprint the
description in order that our, readers may ,
judge whether any such people inhabit
their respective neighborhoods. We cer•
tainly have seen such. Hear Mr. Cessna :
"There are unfortunately those among
us who cannot, discuss the question a sin
mome,ut without showing that they
. are at heart foes of the Government and
enemies of their 14ce. The pdople soon
learn to find out, and know these men.
Human skill and ingenuity and all of
traitor's cunning cannot long succeed in
concealing their real sentiments. They
hang back or skulk away from' our pub
lie gatherings on our national h . olidays ;
they disparage Union officers 'and soldiers
and eulogize the .11.ebtls. All Union vic
tories are insignifieant—of little account;
rebel victories' arel of incalculable value
and importance. Good news 'is never
credited—bad news is often originated,
' believed, and circulated long before veri
fied. Taxes are obnoxious and oppressive;
drafts' are unconstitutional and odious;
war is bloody - and desolating,' and the
nation ought at once to stop it. For
nearly four years' everything has been
wrong: nothing eXcellent, nothing even
praiseworthy. or passable has ever been
done by their goyernment—Only EMS- -
takes, wrongs, wicked acts •of tyranny,

the establishment of a military despotism.
During all this time, they shave never
been known to utter a word of lieri'u — ncia-
Hon against the (Rebellion, or see an
improper act south of the Rebel lines.
These are the unmistakable ear=marks 'of
the traitor. He ;may remonsarate; he
may write down beneath the picture in
large letters the ward "Patriot,' he may,
in very noisy 'and earnest words, insist
that hels a "sound Democrat,"land that
every man of - his party who sustains the
wards an "Abolitionist." Teti after all
he is neither a patriot flora good Demo

authority afterward !"

CAPTURE OP A itniL.—The Carlisle
herald say that on Moliday evening, at
Newport, Perry. county, Captain John
Hartsell, captured an out-and-out live
iebel,iwho was making, .his way ' ati rap
idly. as possible, to join bid comrades - at
Itiohniond. He gave his name as Thos.

and from there to Elmira, N. Y., from

High Prices--The; True Cause.
It is quite the custom just now to at:
tribute the present high prices to an ex
panded currency. We are flippantly told
this is the grea t. cause af commercial de-,
rangement, and if the citrency were only
reduced to the standard of three
years ago prices would dome down in the
same proportion. Let us think a moment,
and we shall see the utter absurdity of
such a conclusion. No matter what is the
medium for making exehanzes, or whit is
currency, or what Is lawful money—whe
ther it be gold or bank-notes, or treasury
notes—war prices always were and always
must be high. prices. gurope lean, el it
during her Napoleonic dear; we learned it
in,the war of 1812,and the same stern tea
cher compels us to submit to it now. The
reason is clear and simile. Production
is diminished and by th6waste of war con
sumption is increased. The war draws the
farmerssons from the pleiw,and fewer acres
are sown and smaller Intreest are reaped.
The mechanic art aufferlin the same pro
portion. Scarcely less Ithan two—fifths
of our adult male population are now de
voting all their time and energy to ending
the rebellion. Of these ,a vast number are

by hundreds, and rnany, are in hospitals;
while those employed in the navy yards,
iron worksymachine shols,aud in the man
ufacture of military clothing and equip
ments and in producing munitions and
supplies, swell the aggregate to the limit
we have named. This great class of pro
ducers cannot be withdrawn from their I
ordinary pursuits without a great diminu
tion in the products of the country. when
the supply is greatly diminished, and the
demand not only continued but increased
prices must advance. There is no possible
help for .. If we eohld - return to a
I specie basis to-morrow, it would still be a

There is but one exception to this ad
vanpe in prices, and ;lot is the Govern
ment bonds ' and they are no exception to
I the role, and only folloW the-general la*
f supply and demand. The necessities of
war made them abnodaht, and therefore
I they are cheap but who:tithe war ends the
supply will cease - and they will be dear—
and the man who inyesti in them now is
of a liberal profit.
,reduction of the currency will be
well and we have the off4cial assurance of
the Secretary of the Treasury that it is
now taking place, but it is not Infallible
