A VOICE IN THE NIGHT.
Awake ! arouse ! delay is death !
* The star of Union dimly gleams,
Whilst red rebellion's sulpbrious breath
Would quench, would chill its sacred beams :
Say, will you linger idly by,
And view that star of Freedom d^?
Yon flag—which oft so proudly gleamed
'Mid battles of the olden days,
Whose stripes like vict'ry's lightning beamed,
Till deathless all wo deemed its rays:
Behold it trailed in dust and blood !
Awake! and save it from the flood!
Hark, tho low murmurs of the dead;
The voices of our buried sires 7
Was it for this - we died and bled,
And lit tho revolution's fires ?
Must thy prized spirit mourning flee
From earth —Oh ! Glorious Liberty 1
Look, how with pleading eyes she stands !
Ye worshipped her in days gone by!
Wrought out with joy her high commands ;
And wait ye now to see her die 1
Shall traitor bards indite a hyuin,
And mockingly chaant her requiem 7
No! by the blood our fathers shed!
I see ye rising in your might:
The spirit of the sacre-l dca i
In every heart is burning bright.
They shall not quench the glorious sun
Of freedom and of Washington.
Then rise ! e'er fades the light of day :
Wake, e'er is passed the hour to save :
Strike, lest your children turn away
With curses from each recreant's grave ;
Whose hands—whose hearts may wear the chain,
And hope not to be freed again.
My countrymen—ye will arise!
I see it in each heaving breast:
I view within your kindling eyes
The gleam which sitson victory's crest;
No power on earth can quell the free,
Nor quench thy star— Oh! Liberty ! F. T.

BY MARGUERITE RIVIERE.
I CURLED nij-self up into a ball on the scat,
pulled my veil over my face, and from the time
T left home till the cars stopped, panting, at
Jersey City ferry, my * thoughts were upon
one subject—the sea-sliorc. When, at last,
we got to New Yotk, and I had enjoyed my
tiardors'supper and laid tny head upon one
of the Fifth Avenue's pillows for the night,
how I thought myself to sleep thinking how
becoming my blue bathing-dress would be,
together with the gypsy hat! Ah how sadly
mistaken was I !
In the cars next morning I met a friend
—a gentleman friend. I met him with out
stretched hands. He was as delighted to see
me as I was to sec him. " Where was I
going ? —to Newport ?"
" No ; only to some quiet sea-shore town,
just to 'rough it."
" Ho was on the lookout for such a place—
would I have any objections to his company ?'>
" I should bo delighted, if manuna would
Mamma graciously agreed, and Mr—what
shall I call him ? Jackson ? anil Mr. Jack
son and I went gleefully off to a little re
tired seat, and chatted, and laughed, and had
the nicest time imaginable, entirely regard
less of our neighbors. Mainma and her party,
all " old folks," were away off at the other
end of the ear, gravely discussing the prospect
of pleasant rooms.
Mr Jackson declared I should learn how to
swiin ;he would teach me himself. Pshaw •
it was nothing to learr.; I would be able to
swim like a duck in a week. What pleasure
were before me ! Mr Jackson ! swimming i
sea-breeze, etc., etc. Mr Jackson and I were
in what I had been accustomed to call at
school a " gale," and when the cars stopped
for the fortieth time, and our party rose en
masse and shouted for us to come on, we
could hardly believe we had accomplished the
When I stepped u[>on the platform I looked
eagerly for the sea—for " Old Ocean!" but I
could see nothing more entrancing than two
or three shabby little groceries, and a large
number of dirty children. I think I had im
agined that all the children who lived by the
sea wore picturesque hats, with long, floating
ribbons, had masses of tangled curls, very red
lips, and very red cheeks. I hinted something
of this kind to Mr. Jackson ; but he hastened
to assure me that children on the sea-shore
were strikingly like those, inland.
As wo were all jammed and packed into
a very rickety old stage, you will not be sur
prised to hear that 1 was very cross by the
time we reached our hotel. The hotel by the
way, was tolerable— but my room ! 1 will
not attempt to describe it, however ; it will be
suilicient to ?ay that my nose was retrousse

"TO SPEAK HIS THOUGHTS IS EVERY FREEMAN'S RlGHT."—Thomas Jefferson.
TUNKHANNOCK, PA., WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 24, 1862.
After having arranged ourselves for the
evening, all started for]the beach. It will
be unnecessary to state that Mr. J. and I
walked more slowly than the others. Apro
pos, why is it that" old folks " are so much
more brisk than young ones, now-a-days ?
'Tis a fact that my grandmother can beat me
running up stairs !
" Here wo are," cried Mr. J., just as I put
my foot into a mass of dreadful sea-weed ;
that felt, through my open-work stockings,
wet and shake-like.
"Ah what it that ?" shrieked I springing
a yard off.
" Merely a coarse kind of sea-weed ; you
will find plenty about the beach,"
Thereupon 1 gathered up my skirts and
during the rest of the walk occupied myself
busily in picking my way in a very dainty
manner. Out of regard for the feelings of
others, I lefrain from mentioning a few stray
dead kittens that were lying around, washed
up by J the tide.
Mr. J. was enthusiastic. He entreated mo
to look at the grand prospect. I attempted to
do this, but the waves dance# afid glittered so
the sunshine it dazzled my eyes. The man
acted as if he was wild ! He sat'down on the
beach and made fortifications with the sand ;
then he bombarded these with pebbles and
oyster shells (the only shells to be found, by
the way) ; then he wrote my namfe on the
sand in large, straggling letters, and drew a
painfully ugly head, with hair standing on
end and a cigar in its mouth, which he kindly
pronounced to be a most admirable likeness
of me. Me !
I bore all this in horrified silence ; but at
last was forced to beg this most obstreperous
cavalier to take me back to the hotel, for I
was in constant and agonized dread of be
coming freckled, and I pictured myself with
dismay how I would look in my lilac, a color
so trying to the complexion, with large red
blotches and small brown spots all over my
face, these two dreadful results being the
effect of the sun on the water. Mr. J. con
sented to take me away, and after ascertain
ing that mamma and the rest were romanti
cally' perched on some rocks, and seemed to
be enjoying themselves amazingly, we wend,
ed our way home.
And now I come to the most heart-rending
scene of this summer tour. Ido not believe
that I havo mentioned before that Mr. Jack
son was decidedly good-looking; but such
positively was the case, and, what is more,
he wore "good clothes he was. in fact, al
ways dressed in the tip of the fash >n. Al
together, his toul-enscmhle was e.iiirclv to
my gout , and would havo been to yours, dear
The morning after our arrival we all break
fasted in high glee. Were we not going m
bathing ! We could hardly restrain our im
patience till eleven o'clock ; so while the oth
ers wandered about the parlors and balconies,
I went into the music-room with Mr. J., and
played a lovely arrangement of" Over the
Summer Sea;" and when the clock at last
struck eleven, how wc rushsd for our hats !
and what quick work wo made of the little
walk down to the beach !
My hand trembles, my courage sinks.—
Can I bring myself to relate what occurred ?
For the sake of others I will continue—for
the sake of any poor, deluded girl who is
begging her papa to take her to tho sea-shore-
Sea-shore, 6ea-side, surf-bathing, etc thero
is a strange clnrm about those words to the
uninitiated ; but, alas I—well, I'll go on.
I arrayed myself in my blue bathing-dress
and gypsy hat; but as 1 had no Psyche to
consult, only a very little piece of broken
glass, I was hapily unconscious of the effect
I produced. I careered around the bathing
house and inspected the ladies, and laughed
at them till I couldn't stand from exhaustion
and was forced to sit down upon the floor,
where I panted, and the tears ran down my
cheeks for ten minutes. I thought to myself
—"They are old, and can't carry off this
kind of costume with any grace ; as for me,"
I looked down at my little white feet, which
were set off to great advantage bv the blue
flannel ruflles, and smiled complacently, and
tripped to the door rather anxious than oth
erwise that Mr. Jackson should see me.
The beach was crowded with spectators,
and as I looked down to the watea I saw
numberless half bodies jumping up and down
and splashing each other. I looked eagerly
around for Mr. J., when my attention was
attracted towards a figure that was emerg
ing from a bathing-house a little way off.—
This figure was robed in a pair of gray flan
nel drawers, rather short, and a red flannel
shirt, very much open at the throat. It had
on a decidedly dilapidated straw hat, which
hung down in a flimsy manner, plainly show
ing that it had been exposed to frequent wet
tings. As the creature neared me, I perceiv
ed that it had a black moustache; as it came
a little nearer I noticed a large pair of gray
eyes ; a little nearer I was startled by see
ing a line of white teeth -which gave an ex
pression to the thing strangely familiar to
me. Horror of horrors ! this indescribable
creature bawled out to me—
" Halloa, Miss Blanche, you are ready, I
see. llow pretty, you look—ha ha !"
I was completely shocked and indignant.—
What meant the elegant Mr. Jackson by
rigging himself in such a circus costume as
that I lie surely did not expect 1 would go
down to the water with him. This last, as a
matter of course, I said aloud, and I got for*
" Most certainly I do; come on." And he
seized my hand and galloped down the beach
dragging me with him. I managed to gasp
out: " Let me go ; lam ashamed of you.—
The sea air has made you crazy !" but he
never stopped till I was up to my neck in
Then commenced a series of persecutions.
He insisted that I must wet my head, or it
would give me a cold, and taking of his hat
he dipped it in the water, and pushing back
my hat, douced my head ; and then filling it
again performed this same agreeable little
operation upon himself. Language fails to
describe how ugly he^looked; the wavy
brown hair parted neatly behind and brushed
out at tho sides was reduced to a few elfish
locks, flatly matted down to his head, and
around his neck, and the water trickling
from it down his nose, and around his face
Then he declared I must float; and he put
his hand on my back and told ine to raise
myself up. This I declared I would not do ;
but my tyrant insisted, and at last I made
the attempt and succeeded. Lightly resting
on the water, the sensation certainly was
pleasant, and I almost forgave Mr. J. for his
misdemeanors, when that gentleman sudden
ly announced he thought I could float alone,
and so saying withdrew his hand. Down I
went, struggling and gasping, salt water run
ning into my eyes, nose, and mouth. How
far I went down I am unable to say, for the
next thing I was standing on my feet, and
that fiendish Mr. J. standing by, dying with
laughter, and essaying to wipe my face with
his dripping shirt sleeve. I gave him an in
dignant look through my, perforce, wet eye
lashes, and declared my intention of going
ashore. This he objected to: " lie wanted
to teach me how to
what scorn T uttered that one word ! I turn
ed my back upon Mr. J. and waded towards
the beach. He politely came alter me, and
walked up to the bathing-house. That short
walk I never recall without a shudder. The
feeling of wet flannel is not the most agreea
ble thing in the world. I pulled my gypsy
over my face so that none of the saunterers
on the beach should recognize me. Mr. Jack
son said not a word till I got safely within
the door, and then he muttered, with a sigh,
" Ah, Miss Blanche, you were not intended
for a sea nymph !"
I bade him sharply "go look at himself in
the glass," and disappeared to make my toi
let, which I did with great satisfaction, in
wardly resolving never to go in bathing again.
After I was all dressed, I went down the
beach and looked for mamma. There they
all were placiiHy ducking up and down, and
occasionally playfully giving each other a
By and by Mr. -J. joined me, looking fresh
er and handsomer than ever, and we went
mournfully back to the hotel.
As I sat that evening, on a corner of the
long balcony recalling the scenes of the morn
ing, my friend came to me.
" Miss Blanche," ho said, standing leaning
against the balcony railing," do not you
think you and I would agree better at Sharon
I acknowledged that we probably would.
" Sharon is very pleasant now," continued
he, " it is the height of the season."
" Charming !" I exclaimed with enthusi
" Well! suppose we go there ?" Mr. J.
said this in a rather embarrassed manner.
" Mamma never would consent," I answer
ed, " she thinks she needs the sea-air."
" But without mamma ?" he said in alow
voice, and leaning over me a little.
" Without mamma '?"
" There is a clergyman here, and it is a
pity to waste tho summer. You'll never
bathe again ?"
" Oh ! never !"
" Well, Blanche, shall we go ?"
" Why, yes, I think it would be to bad to
waste the summer.
So it was arranged, and Mr. J. went gaily
off and got an arm chair and brought it over
to my corner, and took out a cigar, and I lit
it for him, and we talked and planned, and
laughed, for an hour or more. And when
mamma came looking for me, I had just time
to pull away my hand from his, when she
spied me. lam afraid she saw the motion,
for she looked a little severe, and commenc
" Blanche, it is after eleven o' ," when
Mr. J. got up and made her a bow and told
her how matters stood, and implored her
" Mamma was struck dumb with amaze
ment, but at last recovered herself sufficient
ly to exclaim—
" You are both as crazy as loons. Blanche,
go to bed."
But, towards morning, it seemed to me,
she came in and, giving me an affectionate
kiss, expressed it as her motherly opinion
that tfie Sharon waters would do me good.
So, to the astonishment of my friends and
the edification of our fellow boarders, Mr.
Jacksou and I were married, and started for
Sharon, where nothing happened to disturb
our harmony, and whero I had a fire made
in my room on purpose to burn up our bath
ing dresses. Mr. Jackson declares I looked,
just as dreadfully ugly as lie did, that day,
but I Know that is utterly impossible.
REPUBLICANS NOT IN FAVOR OF
THE OLD UNION.
The Mac-a-check (Ohio) Press, a Republi
can paper, (Lieut. Gov. Stanton's organ,) like
all others of that ilk, calls Democrats traitors
and the like, has the following in its issue of
July 4th :
" There are reasons tending to show that
the Constitution as it is will be perpetuated ;
but that the Union as it was does
not,and ought not to exist."-
And again, the Bellefontaiiic Republican, of
July 11th, asks :
"Do you, Democrats, wish to restore the
Union as it was and the Constitution as it is?
I cannot believe it. You certainly do not
comprehend all the evil that lie? concealed in
this high sounding phrase: 'the Union as it
was.' Great God, are we to have these scenes
of horror enacted over again."
Democrats, what do you think of this kind
of talk? It will soon be declared treason to
ask for the restoration of the old Union, if
these Republicans have their own way. When
we learn the truth, we find that the Consti
tution and Union have but few friends among
the Republicans.— Clarke Co. Democrat.
LAW OF RETALIATION.
Nothing brings Abolitionists to their sens
es quicker than a knowledge of the nature
and effect of a right enforcement of the law
of retaliation. Upon this subject the last
Dayton Empire says:
"Ifit is right for Abolicionists to destroy
Democratic printing offices, it is equally right
for the Democrats to destroy Abolition of
fices. Or, if Democrats are not to be pro
tected in their rights of property by the offi
cers of the law, then Abolitionists are not
entitled to such protection. If mob law is to
control, then the Democrats who quietly sub
mit to such outrages are fouls. It is time
this thing of dest oying Democratic offices,
for no other crime than being opposed to Ab
olitionism, was " dried up ;" and no way will
do it so surely, as the adoption of the rule of
We agree with our friends of the Empire,
and hope that, all Republican and Abolition
property holders iu this and other towns, as
well as in the country, will think of this
when, in their midnight conclaves, they shall
be counselling the destruction of the proper
ty of Democrats. "Itis a bad rule that will
not work balk ways."—Ohio Eagle , 28//t.
NEGRO OUTRAGE IN LICKING
The Newark (Ohio) Advertiser of tho 30lh
" On Monday evening last, about 0 o'clock,
the wife of Mr. David Shrock, of this place
while sitting alone in her house, found herself
in the grasp of an unknown negro follow, who
had passed by her window about fifteen min
utes previously, and entered the house by a
back door. The scoundrel approached so
stealthily that his arms were around her
neck before she was aware of his presence.—
At the moment of the outrage, Mrs. S. was
sitting in a high-backed rocking chair, with
her face to the door. By an earnest effort,
she quickly released herself from the scoun
drel's grasp, and raising a cry of alarm, she
escaped by a door leading into the premises
of Mr. Fisher. When the house was re-en
tered, the negro had fled. Are we to have
more of these cases ?
TIIE RIOTS IN OHIO.
The r'ots in Ohio between blacks and
whites extended to many placeß, and were
very serious as well as significant. Though
affairs have become quiet now, the cause
which occasioned them is as vigorous as ever,
and liable to break out at any moment. In
describing the tumults in Cincinnati, the Ga
zette, an intensely Black Republican paper,
says that finally the mob got so frantic that
it attacked every negro it mot, merely because
he was a negro. This is a portentous fact,
and indicates but to well what would be tho
fate of the black raoe in case of a general col
lision with its white superior.
TREASON AT HOME.
The Evangelical Messenger, published at
Cleveland, Ohio, under date of July 20, 1802
has the following treasonable language:
" The remedy now for our political ills, is
not conciliation, but conquest. We cannot
conciliate slavery any more than the Devil,
but we must conquer and subjugate both,and
conquest must be followed, not by a patching
of the Constitution; not by compromise
measures, but by a regeneration of southern
society ; slavery must perish.
" Many cf the revolutionary fathers—fram
eis of the Constitution. Madison and Jeffer
son among the rest, lived long enough to see"
their errors, and to apprehend with the clear
ness of prescience the disastrous conflict ,J,at
was sure to arise."
I TERMS: SI.GO PEII -A.IST3WTTM
In the last Abolition Republican Conven
tion held in Massachusetts, there was a Ne
gro Preacher , a delegate from Hon Charles
Sumner's Hard in Boston. This "brack
brudder," took quite a prominent part in the
proceedings of the Convention, and enlight
ened the white delegates with more than one
speech, done up in the Summer style. A re
turned delegate from this amalgamation Con
vention thus writes to the Boston Courier.—
lie says :
44 Until to-night I thought I was a good
Republican, and, in my simplicity, believed
that in that party I could sustain ' the Con
stitution, the Union, and the enforcement of
the laws,' quite as effectually as by joining
your party. But I have found those having
control of Worcester to day, decrying the
President and opposing resolutions support
ing him—fairly screaming for joy at the pro
posal to exterminate slaveholders ( not slavc
ry,) applauding the advice 4 to let the Union
slide,' and listening to a vapid harranguo
from a negio preacher, a delegate from
Charles Sumner's ward. Ne suior ultra
crepidam. It was all 4 slavery' and 4 Charles
Sumner,' no word for the encouragement of
enlistments, nothing of sympathy for the
President; no patriotism, no unconditional
Unionism, only sneers at Kentucky, and
This is the same party which in Pennsyl
vania calls itself the National Union party
and professes to be opposed to negro equali
ty. But the profession is false. In all the
States where they arc largely in the majori
ty, they adopt 44 practical niggerism," and
appeal to the passions aud prejudices of the
Abolition fanatics to sustain them in such a
course. This is the action of an Abolition
Republican Convention,* under the lead of
Charles Sumner, and such will be their
course in this State when once they have
overmastered the Democracy, and are firmly
seated in the saddle. But that day r has not
yet come, and wo ask conservative white men
to look at the fruits of Abolitionism in Mas
sachusetts, and then aid to prostrate it forev->
er in this State.
THE TRUTH OF HISTORY.
We think the Hartford Courant runs no
risk in making the follow ing statement:
44 We think that history will reveal the facts
at the time McClellan was charged with der
eliction in not sending forward troops to the
aid of General Pope, he had virtually been
stripped of all his troops, even to his body
guard, and that he himself was asking for the
j privilege of going himself, in almost any ca
pacity—that while tl.e President was led to
believe from Pope's dispatches that all was
going well, McClellan was assured that all
was not well, and that when the President
learned of the disgraceful retreat of our army
to Centreville, he called upon McClellan to
take command and save the army."
The Washington correspondent of the Bos
ton Traveler, who had been strongly anti-
McClellan, says in his letter of Thursday
44 To day, McClellan is a rising man. The
s-ddiers new and eld adore him. 1 cannot
account for it, but such is the fact. I reveal
no important score t when 1 state that tlio
Government was compelled to reinstate Mc-
Clellan by the violent feelings in his favor
among the troops. He rode oat among the
troops yesterday, and they went wild with
enthusiasm at the bare sight of him. What
is the secret of this feeling in his favor?—
Who can tell me ? Under the circumstan
ces, can any one censure the President for the
course he has taken ?"
44 The Washington correspondent of the
New York Express, speaking of Gen. Mc-
CHellan's high popularity among his soldiers,
On Saturday last, when McClellan was at
Alexandria with his body guard of less than
one hundred men- all the rest had been or
' dered to join Pope, and he there listening to
the sound of cannon, knowing that his Dne
troops were being sacrificed and ho not al
lowed even to be present—he telegraphed to
the War Department again and agaiu for per
mission to go to the battle field even without
command, and only as an amateur, think
ing that his presence might cheer his own
troops, and at any rate could do no harm, bat
he was refused and absolutely forbidden !!!"
The New York Herald says that 45 a per
fect accord now exists between McClelJan
and the President and the Cabinet, aud all
that is asked by Gen. McClellan is that ho
shall be allowed to carry out his present pur
poses. McClellan said on Thursday he had
