Fair Notice to Our Subscribers.
Our subscribers were notified last week of
the late increase In the price of priQtiag pa
per. It was then intimated that we would )
in order to meet this newspaper crisis, be
obliged to make a change of some sort.
stost if not all the newspaper publishers ra
the country have raised the price of subscrip
tion or reduced the xize of their papers. In
some instances both there remedies have
been adopted to save the publishers from an
absolute loss of several dollars per week.
For ourselves, hoping that this state'of af
fairs will be only of temporary duration, we
navo concluded to try and weather the storm,
without making any change in the size of our
paper or in our published terms, but only ih
our practice in relation to them. Though
our terms as published arc one dollar and fif
ty cents in advance, and two dollars if not
paid within six months, we have never yet
demanded, or received, more than the sum
first named, even though more than a year in
some instances had elapsed from the time of
subscription. a large number of our
subscribers have neglected and still neglect to
pay us for the past year. Now, therefore,
tftat we shall yet continue to publish the
North Branch Democrat at one dollar and
fifty cents if paid in advance. If not paid
•Ivitliin six months, two dollars will positively
be charged. We wish our subscribers to
bear this in mind, as we intend to do just as
We have stated. By punctuality every sub
scriber will, therefore; save fifty cents. We
do uot design to take any " suap judgment"
dh'our subscribers, and will, therefore, give
all in afrears for the pdst or present year, un
til the third Monday of January next, (court
week) to pay us at our ndvancee rates for the
paper. After that date the rule we have
above 6tated will be strictly adhered td. No
one need presume 011 acquaintance or friend
ship for a relaxation of it. Neither of these
will buy paper. That is only procured by
the cash. Prompt payments, therefore, is
what we need and must have in order to pub
fish our paper. We could not sustain our
press at these rates, if we did not do our own
wcrk, and work earlier , vurk later and
roork harder than most people are willing
Our reasons, uo doubt, discovered tfinil in
addition to a half sheet iastred by us last
week, it was also about half printed. The
defective printing arose from a change of
weather and consequent hardening of what is
known among printers as the "roller," cir
cumstances over which we had no control.
A new roller, the making of which required
tnonev, time, ekill and .patience, has improved
tftfe typographical appearance of our paper

PASSMOKE WILLIAMSON. —Our reader! will
nearl j all recollect what a stir this negro
philanthropist created in Abolition circles, in
afew years ago. By his pretend
ed love for the negro, he managed, some three
years ago, to ghin the confidence of an aged
colored woman, owner of some property in
Philadelphia, lie drew a will in his
own- hattd-w riling, and persuaded the woman
to sign it in the absence of her husband and
f/Snd*. The will set forth' tb&t'a siriall
atftount should go to her husband, and the
balance to Passmore Williamson 1 ® wife. The
negro woman died recently, and her hQsband
contested the will: The jury declared the
will null and void. So much for negro phil
authopy in Passmore.

positors, has delayed the issue of our paper

The President's Message.
We have been Compelled to chooio be

the exclusion of almost everything Alse, And
lis entire omission. We have chosen the lat
ter course tint as there ife a Very natural de
sire to knbW something of the Contents of

foreign relitionb, the finances and eftiancipa
tidti. Our foreign relations remain undis
turbed. In relation to the finances, the
President knows of ho mode which promises
so certain results as the drganization of bank
ing associations under a general act of Con
gress, well guarded in its provisions.
The message favors African colonization,
and 6ays the opinion among the blacks in
this respect is improving.
He endorses the proclamation act of Sep
tember. He says there is no line straight pr
crooked for a national boundary upon which
to divide the Republic.
He recommends the adoption of amend
ments to the Constitution, prop-sing that ev

ary, 1900, the owners to bo compensated by
the United States. . , ,

but all owners of such, who shall not have

nizing free colored persons with their own
consent at any place or places without the
He urges these proposed articles at some
length, maintaining that without slavery the
rebellion never could have existed, and with
out slavery it could not continue.
'l y \ie Journal of Commerce, speaking of the
message, says :
" The financial propositions of the Presi
dent require no examination at the hands of
men familiar with the laws of finance. They
are rejected at once by the good sense of the
experienced banker or financier, without a
moment's hesitation. Again and again here
tofore such plans have been examined, sifted,
even tried, and they have always proved ru
inous. At the present time especially they
arc unfitted to the wants of the country.
Any great change in the currency, such as is
proposed, would produce commercial disaster
everywhere. Before the change could be ef
fected the majority of banks and bankers
wfould be ruined, the people would be con
vulsed with .financial embarrassments, and
the distress Which would visit high as well as
low would inevitably set the seal of condem
nation on thfci propiosed system. Certainly
the President and his advisers cannot have
any dtear idea of the working of the laws of
money. They need experience in the com
mon affairs of the money world, or they nev
er would have threatened us with a plau so
crude, so manifestly worthlesss for all practi
cal purposes, even if it he not entirely with
out authority of the Constitution.
Mr. Lincoln is evidently in earnest in his
plans of emancipation. Ilis earnestness de
mands that his views receive a careful, can
did and studious examination by the people,
and this they will have. But who can read
them at a momcDt like this and not bo aston
ished at their presentation as a means 6f
bringing to an end the existing wai; which is
destroying the nation ? We are compelled
to say that the whole plan indicates a failure
on the part of the President to appreciate the
vastness of the war, the swift nature of its
mfluenccs, the terrible verge on which the.
country trembles. While Congress is dis
cussing and adoptir?g rmendments to the
Constitution, while the Legislatures of the
States are and considering them,
after Congress shall have done with them,
while wo wait the chances of all the" free
States and seven of the slave States agreeing
to incorporate these propositions in the grand
instrument of our national existence, the war
goea on tearfully, and the blood of the people
flows fast and—if this plan be our only hope
Mr. Lincoln makes that terrible error of
imagining, as the radical men have taught
him, that this war Is a war about slavery
alone, that slavery is the causo of rebellion,
disagreement, disunion. Me proposes to
adopt a scheme of emancipation involving an
immense debt, on the theory that if he can
thus dispose of the slavery question he will
have removed out of tho Way all causes of
discord, tho American millenium will have
dawned, and—no matter what it costs us—
we have nothing to do but live on in peace
and prosperity, with no domestic broils, no
foreign war, no troubles, fto block to our
prosperity, until we are a nation ef a hfindred
millions—then pay our debt and be perfectly
blessed. The theory is strange enough in
peaceable times, it is with solemn sadness
that we see it offered in these days of awful
war. as a means of ending conflict and estab
lishing national peace and union. To us it
appears as impracticable and hopeless of good
as letting go an anchor in mid ocean to save a
vessel that is driving before a tempest, with
torn sails and disheartened crew.
What the People Pay Por.

The people turned out to welcome them
as martyrs in the sacred cause of liberty and

Somebody has got to answer for the enor

against personal property in the last year.
It is no slight matter to seize a man without

Thfe New York U'urld calls attention to the
fact that its cotcmporanes, the Evening Post
Times and Tribune, bul a few short months
ago teemed with complaints of the " rose wa
ter" policy of guarding property and endeav
oring to restrain the scMier* from ravaging
the country as they passed through and, says :
Pope's savage orders were hailed as begin
ning of a new era of sterner measures against
the Rebels, and Senator Sherman's monstrous
proposition that to "fight savage* we must be
couie savages ourselves," was tacitly admitted
to be true. But presto ! what a change lias
come over the spirit of their dreams. The
Government advertisedthe sale of some books
left by their owners at Bmufort, South Caro
lina. " This wont do," shouts the Post; „only
barbarians make war on bdoks." " Its un
christian, uncivilized,'' echoes the Times. "The
freedmen, after they have learned how to read
will want whatever books are sealed."
adds the Tribune. And so Mr. Barney is
compelled to adjourn the sale Indefinitely.
We hail all this as an evid educe of return,
ing reasen ; but will these j wrnals be good
enough, now that thej'are s living up the
laws of wat' afid the' usages ofo'vili.vd nations
to point 6fft itid chapter and paragraph that
will justify an enemy in seeking to incite a
servile insurrection 1 lias it ever before
been an appliance of warfare in ancient or
motfe'frt times? Then again, if confiscating
books is so very wrong, what shall we say to
faw? coriffisc'alibg the entife property of a
people with who.n we are at war ? Does
not the Post, Times and Tribune see that in
choaking over a very small gnat, they are

''Snal! l!>? War Succeed" is the title of a
significant article in the New York tr'orlu.
It asks :
"Who to-day is hopeful of the Sficcess of

intervention, the conquest of an honorable
peace and a reunited country, save only the
radicals whose mcchinations have thrice cheat

DEAR MOTHER :
I now take my pen in
hand to write a few lines to you in order to
let you know that I am yet alive, and of my
whereabouts. I suppose you think it is
strange that I have not written to you before
but it is not strange neither is it my
fault. We took up our line of march the
same day, therefore I have had no opportuni
ty to write to any one. While on the
march I received one from you, one from Un
cle Eli, and one from Bishop Harris. I am
glad to get them. It is a great consolation to
mo to get a letter from friends at home.
You may think it is not or I would answer
them more promptly, but I have Worked hard
to get this poor sheet of paper to write on.
We have got no money nor anything else.
We have not received a cent of money 6ince
I sent you the forty-two dollars from Harri
son's Landing. Neither is there any pros
pect of our getting any very soon. IV e have
now sixty-five dollars due us,
I will try to state to you some of our hard
ships and starvation. We have marched
through mud up to our knees, and cold
drenching rains and snow stontis both day
and night. We haVe no tents nor are we half
clothed. All that we hatfe had for the last
three days is fonr hard crackers to the inan.

fighting for our country, the people of the
North are a fighting us in the removal of Mc-
Clellan. It is one of the most lamentable
things that has ever happened to the Army
of the Potomac. T think this war is getting
to be a mixed lip mess. Tf 1 knew that T was

are almost smoked to death now. hovering
around the camp fires; I have riot room to

McNeil proceeded to carry uUi, threat.
The ten citizens were taken out to a vacant
lot placed on their knees beside their coffims,
a platoon cf soldiers drawn up in front, and
the terrible tragedy enacted. To add to the
horror of the scene, only four or five of the
victims were killed at the first fire. The
