Col, Davis Went in for
ing Down the Rebellion.
The following choice extractg from the
I.Dayleeoton. . Republican, of which Col.
IDavis, the present Democratic candidate
• for Aditor General of this State, was
and is he editor and proprktor, are_given
, for the purpose of showing the sentiments
I which were disseminated bythat paper
while e held an official position under
the Government which was so bitterly
assailed in its pages. As l'Col. Davis is
now before the people as alcaudidate for
public office, and Is demons of receiving
their votes, and since he was undoubtedly
nominated on account of his having been
en,,aag9d in the war, and therefore liktly
Ito be more available before the public on
that account; it is but just ! that the kind
of aid his newspaper rendered the Gov
ernment, and the sympathy it extended
'lto its noble, illustrious and lamented
' chief in Lis efforts to crush out trcaon
and rebellion, should be again given r to
;.the cothmunity. 1
An editorial article in the Denuicrat
of August' 23d, ISOI, when Col. Davis
' was still an officer in the army, reads as
"With an immense army, a good navy,
and the ports of the Confederacy block
aded, We have gained virtually nothing,
and we will have. gained nothing until
we defeat the two main armies of the
South. The reasons why We have been
so unfortunate are plain and understand
able. Ir. Lincoln committed himself to
,an emancipation policy.. ; He hereby
!abandoned the war for re-union, and made
;it a wa i t- absolutely and unequivocally for
the ricro—"Slavery shall not live" was
his motto.' Beyond this was an object
dearer to' his heart—his own re election
--whieh he esteemed more than a bun
, dred thousand )lives. These were his
two motives for ; abandoning the princi
pies of onr government, and of pervert
in," the war. )'or these purposes, and
these only, has the war been ,prolonged ;.
for these purpo.sea were the, soldiers mks-
Isacred l at Olustee, and the army of Gen.!.
Grant defeated and Soiled ;'for these pur
poses has another draft been ordered; for
these p - urpos'es have elections been car
' ried by l force of anus, and "bogus States"
declared in the Union ; for these purposes
(have the forts and bastiles of the country
been filled with fearless patriots who dare

and the surrender of them to an arbitrary

the administration of James Buchanan,
and 'war, bloody; remorseless war, began
with the inauguiation of Abraham Lin i

let us now try to effect what war has
failed to do. There is no doubt that Mr.
Litcolp has done more ta cement the
St,ates of the Confederady together than

Again, from a leading editorial of ,
Ananst. 30, the week after, WC quote the;
"The Confederates contend that they'
made an agreement with the Fed-1
erals for the proper and speedy exchange!
ofprisdners ; that they faithfully observed;
the prdvisions of it, and have "frequently
proposed exchange on its basis. But.
Mi.. Lincoln says no. He will permit!
the white soldier of the North to rot in ;
the scorcting sun, and the Federal army i
to became a skeleton, before he will agree
to an exchange whieh does not recognize:
' his tyranny and edurt his despotic will. I
"'hat is the consequence of Mr Lin-1

The Confederates are accused of inordi
nate barbarity, in order to conceal the
despotism and criminal fanaticism of our,
President. Let the soldiers remember;
that Abraham Lincoln made a solemn!
agreement for the exchange of prisoners!
of war, and broke it, because it did not;
ißyude negro soldiers, many of whom are'
runaway sieves of the South. Let them;
remember that all their sufferings and
privations while in captivity were necess
itated by the contracted policy of Mr.
Lincoln., , Let them remember that their
'rights, bailor, and their liberty are out
irar,ed 013' account of the negro • and done
by a President of the United States.
"The aegro is the idol of Abolitionism.
'The whites may die in forts and Prison
!camps, because the negro is not recog
nized as his equal by the Confederates.
This fact proves that our present rarfare
is a weak fight for negro equality, and
negro liberty. No evidence can be found
that we ttre fighting for re-union and the
Constitution. The war is perverted and
the man guilty of the act presumptuously
asks the 'suffrages ,of the people and of the
soldiers in the army. Let the people re
member Ihim. Let the wives and chil
idren of the prisoners of war recollect that
he is - tbe fountai* head of their sufferings;
and if they become widows and orphans,
i that be is the murderer: Let the pris
oners remember him when they eat their
last scanty morsel; And if the people of
this country are true to themselves and
to our suffering soldiers, they will pro
nounce him a man
j•Hated, despised, scourged by a t:i•o-fold rod,
The scorn of millions and the curse of God.'
The above is only a sample of the nu
merous productions of a like character
that bac!) appeared in that paper, during
'the war, more of which may appear in

Capt. Wirz Defended by the Copperhead Candi-.
date for Auditor General!
The Doylestown Democrat, 'owned and
edited be General Davis, the Democratic',
candidatb for Auditor Generall, prints an'
editorial, in defence of they infamous
Captain IWirz, who - starved and l murdered
our prisOners at Andersonville.l It asserts!
that the military commissiun,before which !
Wirz is bo trial, is a usurpation of power,i
and that the prisoner has not been fairly;
dealt with. Gen. \V W. H. Davis makes
this assertion when he• knows that the
testimony against the monster Wirz,
comes frOm Union soldiers who suffered
at Andersonville, who saw Wirz shoot in ;
cold blond, Union prisoners who could
nut stand on their feet from the effects of
starvation ; from rebel surgeons who saw
Wirz trample to—death Unioo soldiers
who were too weak to crawlon the ground.
And yet W. W. H. Davis, through the
columns' of his own journal, defends the
inhuman acts of Wirz, asserting that his
trial is unfair and that his beipg held to
trial is a military usurpation. - What
soldier in Pennsylvania can vote for a
candidate advocating such sentiments ?
and may we not further ask,; is there a
soldier in the land who would fail to
scorn any officer who thus defended the
most brutal development of the rebellion.
