Oca SUBSCRIBERS are reminded thart next
week is court week, and as Jurors, Consta
bles, and Justices of the Peace, from all {farts
of the county, will be in attendance; a good
opportunity will be afforded them to send
the amount of their subscription along. Our
friends afe also requested t6 bring iu the
dames of all the responsible, paying subscri
bers that may be induced to take our paper.
A little effort by each man in his own neigh
borhood, wouid soon siim up our list to what
it ought to be. The time for argument with
mfen as to the necessity of sustaining the
Democratic local press, and thereby Demo
cratic principles, has passed. Every man
tOOfft abw know that to be a necessity. That
wc Cantfot piibhsh a paper without pay, also
needs no argument. We have beeu publish
ed to as poor, by Mr. Tiffauy, who
" pays tax" (over the left,) on property
worth at least " fifteen hundred dollars."—
In this charge he came nearer the truth than
he has for months before, except where he,
in the same article, gravely charges us with
paying our debts. To all of which we plead
guilty.. We wish these wild Babes, who
throw such heavy bomb shells, didn't live in
a thinner " glass house" than ours.
THE ELECTIONS in New York, New Jer
sey, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois have gone demo
cratic—with ladgt* gains in Michigan, Minne
sota, lowa and even Massachusetts. The
next congress will have a majority of what
the abolitionists call " Breckenridge Demo
crats," Breckenridge, it seems is far more
popular in these parts than he was in l®fi9.
Then, old Abe beat him by hundreds of thous
Hut-tut-tut-tut Tiffany !
Don't for Heaven's and your own soul's
sake tell any more lies about that tax. Hav
ing told one big black one on the day of elec
fidtr, f trti have considered it necessary in or
der to e£sfain that SWsy, to tell half a -Core
riiore of little while ones. Yon know or,
ought to hate kr.oWi before doing ss you did
that that worth at feast fifteen han
ded dollars in Luzerne County," was ntver
assessed to you ; and that you never paid one
cent tax on it. We know from the records in
that county which have been examined, that
it was never assessed to you. J. W. Tiffany,
it is true, has for a year or two past paid tax
on a property valued at about S2OO ; but the
payment of a small tax by him does not enti
tle you nor any of the rest of tne family to a
vote. You voted therefore without having
the legal right to do so. Now my dear little
" babe in the woods," don't further endanger
your little soul by adding to its guilt any
in >relies about this tax question. Go into
an explanation of that venison matter. Own
right up. Don't tell any lies, little Babie!
That's naughty for a Utile babe in the woods.
The High Price Of Paper.
The price of paper has risen very fast and
very high within a short time past, and is
reaching a figure that will revolutionize the
prices of newspapers, periodicals and books
throughout the country. Already newspa
per publishers, in various parts of the dodn
try, are putting up the prices ofttheirr r jour
nals, and soon all the papers in the country
tnust advance in price. Publishers will be
compelled to do this to sustain themselves".—
The price of paper, which has already advan
ed about 40 per cent, must continue to ad
▼ance while the war lasts, unless some other
material than cotten be discovered front
which to make it. Publishers having the
necessary capital are buying up large quanti
ties of paper and thus adding another rea
son why the article will soon be much High
er than at presefrt. Weekly papers that have
been and are now p-Jbltshed at $1,50 per an
num, will soon be much higher than at
present. Weekly papers that have been and
are now published at $1,50 per annum, will
soon be advanced to two dollars, and papers
at other prices iu the same proportion

Served llim Right.
Tiffany, we mean the one that " hankers"
after venison, not the one that is laboring un
der the hallucination that he has paid a ax
in Luzerne County, when none has never
been assessed to him. Tiffany, " Junior" we
mean, got a snuff of wild meat on Friday last,
and it made the fellow so crazy thai he r.v
ed around until a gentlemen, whom lie i
suited, took the shortest cut to bring fiim t •
his senses, and slapped his ears, whereuj.
Tiffany, junior, the venison lover, slunk
away like any other whipped puppy. T ■
verdict of all present on the occasi- n Wax
" served him right." We remember of T
fany " Seignior," as he calls hiiu-ell,
brought to his senses on a former occ>t •• "
a smart application of judicial boo' ■
his lateral extremity. These are the -nl
kind of arguments that reach these pivci
little babes. The people have found <>u' .h -
fact, and will mako use of them hereafter on
all proper occasions.

the Demdcrrtlc Jubilee and Buck Roast.
The Democratic Jubilee and Buck Roast,
held at tlifs place On Friday, Sept. the 7th, is
au event fit fhe history of the Democratic
party of this cbunty that will long be reuTem
ered. The old ship of Democracy had been'
driven from her moorings by the whirlwind
of fauaticism. For two long years fihe has
been drifting almost without chart, compass
or rudder—tempest tossed and racked by
the waves of tyrany and corruption, her safe
ty had been threatened, and her very exist
ence had been denied. This occasion was the
gathering together of the crew and passengers
after the long and stormy voyage; aud safe
arrival in the haven of security, upon the
rock of the Constitution, to congratulate
themselves aud each other upon their deliv
fcrenCe from the dangers with which they had
been threatened. Some had been cast away
for a season upon the lone Islands of doubt,
some had laid hold upon the reefs of distrust.
Some had stuck iu the quicksauds of despair.
All but the miserable renegade who, through
fear, bad plunged head and heels into the
dark waves of niggerism, never to rise again
had sought the good old ship again, and found
her equal to the emergency. What a glad
roeetihg was this. None but suob as have
felt the crushing weight of tyranny and op
pression, removed, can appreciate the feelings
of the faithful who met on this occasion.—
But to a narration of the events of the day. It
is well known that P. W. Redlieid. the ehief
of the hunters, had by Proclamation, called
the democratic hunters to participate iu the
chase, and like loyal men they responded.—
Tne Buck was captured. A doe was also
caught to keep him company. Three coons,
cme of which was supposed to be " that same
old coon," was addeal to the trophies of the
campaign of commander Redficld and his
faithful comrades.
These animals were served up at Mr.
Wall's Hotel, in the best style of the culinary
art—the Coon, of course for the new converts
—the Doe, for those who had served a pro
bationary season—and the Buck for the faith
ful—those who stick to the ship. " sink or

John Day and Harvey Srekler were chosen
as secretaries. After a few appropiate intro
ductory remarks by the President, Ifop. E.
B. Chase of \\ ilkesbarre was called, and upon
entering the stand was greeted With roundi
of applause. He delivered a short and elc-"
gant speech in which he adverted to the try
ing time?" through which the Democracy had
passed ; the gloom that overshadowed our
once fair land and of the ray of light and hope
that i? now penetrating it. Mr. Chase spoke
as one Who feels deeply, as lie must ; having
himself been made a victim of the unbridled
lawless..?- 1 " anil contempt of constitutional

Ira M ichel E-q. of Wilkesbarre was next
called. lie sai the hardly knew how to ad
dress hini-elf to the faithful, he could preach
to the unconverted, but to those who were
safe in the fold he could see no necessity for
a sermon. He did it seems, know how to
speak however and Was listened to with great
attention aaid satisfaction. Tne close of his
sermon was the " Song of the Democracy,'*
addressed to Father Abraham which he read
amid deafening cheers, at the close of each
stanua. This song was written as will be seen,
sometime after the elections in this state, In
diana and Ohio, but previous to that in New
York" At the close of the meeting it was
sung by an impronitU choir.
E; Wright was called, and addressed
the meeting in his peculiarly hippy style,
blimlmg w>l, anecdote, argument, and poetry,
in such rich and- varied profusion as to en
rapture and Chain the audience.. An attempt
to furnish anything like adstract of hts ad
dress, by us, would be futile.
At the conclusion of Mr. Wrights remarks j
the President announced that Mr. Mitchell
bad s proposition to make to the Meeting, Mr. j
Mitchell said that in the present age of civi
lization he did not" think it would be proper
to dispose of the dead body of Black Repub
; licani.-m without complying with the usual
custom of holding an inquest upon it. He '
therefore proposed that the meeting should
resolve itself into a Jury of Inquest add he had
prepared a Verdict to which he thought they
w..uld all agree. He said in looking for prc
! cedents only one ocCufred' fo him that was
at all approrriate, and that was the verdict
! of Inquest held on the body of a poor sailor
| found lying upon a Wharf bed ly mutillatedj
the verdict in that case was, thai he had fall
on from the mast of the ship on to the Deck
and killed himself, that he then rolled off in
to the Sea and was drowned, that he was ta
ken up and laid on the Wharf where he froze
t v death, and the rats ate him up alive. He
' b- thought the Republican party had as
. icauses for it> death as this poor sailor,
ami accordingly the following would be an ap
propi late VERDICT.

of the occasion and was listened to with deep
attention by the audience which filled the

Gen. McCleilan, who has so long befell an
eye sore to the Abolitionists, has been re

for some time boeff in contemplation, but was
delayed for political reasons ; the President
fearing that if made before the elections, it

party. This objection now being removed,
the Hero of Antietam has beert banished to
the only northern State, we believe, that cast
her electoral vote against the chief magistrate

of the confidence irl the army, in their

a man whose whole military life has been
without a mistake or blunder, and whose ca

Northern States manifest a factious spirit, the
Provost Marshalls. it is presumed, will have
the power to keep them in order. If State

with the action of the General Government,
necessary to the prosecution of the war, they
wll come under the ac'ion of martial law,and
if the action of any political party shall
threaten to change or paralyze the movements
of %be Government, it will doubtless be com
petent tor the Provost Marshall in any State
to suspend political meetings and postpone
elections. If the Constitution of the United

Democratic Rejoicing in Philadelphia.
The conservative people of Philadelphia as
sembled in Independence Square, on Friday
evening, to celebrate the result of the late
elections in Ohio, Indlanna and Pennsylvania.
That the result was the triumph of popular
constitutional liberty over Executive arro
gance and usurpation. The meeting was, in
all respects, wurty of the occasion. A dense
mass of persons filled the Square, and the ag
gregate number of those who were in, and
those who were pressing on all sides to get
in, must have been twenty-five or thirty
thousand 1 . "The vast conconrse was animated
by the mosf enthusiastic spirit.

The I<ate Elections.
Two years ago Pennsylvania gave Lincoln
07,000 majority. The Wayne county Herald
says she out lleroded Herod in the fearful
work of derating a dynasty which was des
tined to rob her sons of theif most cherished
liberties, and crush freedoni iVith her iron
heel of despotism. In our national Congress,
we had but little more reason for hojtft. We
could only boast of half a dozen brave Spirits,
who had the moral courage to maintain their
rights and to proteet the interests o f their
constituents. Descending to our State gov
ernment, the picture was quite iis dafk. An
abolitionized, Knoiv Nothing Governor, a
Cabinet elected upon the sarhe platfdfm, a
hopelessly fanatical Senate, and a negro wor
shipping Ilouoe ! This tvas the fcoinplexion
to which our cpponferits had brought our glo
rious old Comihonwc'ilth.
To-day we bear a new testimony to that
oft repeated sentence, " Truth crushsd to
earth will rise again." Our triumph *eems
most glorious. Let us not, however, arrogate
to ourselves or to party management the hon-
or of this result; well directed labor has done
much, but the cnflinching Spirit of liberty,
roused to new life by the encroachments of
corruption and despotism has done infinitely
more. A land drenched with blood, a nation
echoing on every hand the wails of widows
and orphans, a treasury plundered of its last
cent, political dungeons resounding with the
tread of innocent men, national and individual
bankruptcy, an infracted Constitution, the
prospect of servile insurrections—these have
bean the great revolutionitts. The contest
was between Tyranny and Liberty ; let us
thank God fhaf the latter has triumphed.
The immediate fruits of our victory are,
the restoration of local affairs to the manage
ment of the democracy, a majority in the
State Legislature, the election of our Auditor
and Surveyor Generals, such a gain in the
lower Louse of Congress, as, with the aid of
democratic triumphs in other States, will give
us the control of that body, and by virtue of
our majority on joint ballot in our State Sen
ate and Ifuusc of Representatives, the elec
tion of a Democratic C. S. Senator, to ffll the
place of David WHtnot.
This is glory enough for one day ; yet, in i
our estimation, ail these things taken by
themselvels alone, do not give us half such
occasion for thankfulness as maty be
found in the fact that fanaticis" and tyranny
have recived a withering rebuke, and in the
new-born hope that the hrua J wings of Peace
taay, ere long, rest upon our blood stained ;
land.— Wtiyne Co. Herald.
