The gener.ltpolicy is conEthed to an ' eh

There are but two solutions to the query.
What does all this mean ? They are these.
First: The Copperheads hate the Union
men of all shades so thoroughly, that if
they can bat beat them, all will be well,
and they are willing to take chance for to
morrow-and like Micawber, they wait for
something to turn up. Secondly: It means
secession, pure and simple. All is fair in
war time; no pledgee bind with the Philis
tines; put any man in but Lincoln, and,
say they, we shall be able to raise such a
ory that the South may go, on her own
terms. As for the horror-stricken and de
luded democrat,be would first be laughed at,
and secondly kicked out unceremoniously.
Every man knows that Lincoln will win, so
far as huwmaa foresight can reach, and win
in a canter. We take it to be chi last effort
of expiring hope.
The candidates and the measures are
before the people, and we do not believe
that any, except those thirsting for office, can
in their hearts, prefer the one set of men
to the other, and after louking at the plat

where such may be found. The men, the

somne man, more literary than his fellows,
has actually read in the hook of Uonesis

in our hearing, indeed pronopnced the affair
bog's ahd a Wretched fiztle; but he must
have been joking or ignorant of eratory.
For odr part.we should esteem it a par
ticalar faor t tothe iiorin mefti i n meetingr
similar to the two ratifcation assemblies of
the Democratic organinisation was got up
each hight; Atid the larger the aidience
the better. No more thorough 'tindcation
of our political platform could possibly be
eontrived than that which our opponents
have so considerately furnished.
Whoen argument so far fails that- the
leaders of a party rest their claims to the
suffrages of the people On barroom stories
about hen) geese, zebras, donkeys, &c.,
&c., it is titme for men to pause ere they
jtimp, with open eyes, itto the Alough of po
litical absurdity. We feel sure that the
most bitter self-humiliation must be the
portion of any man, whose indiscretion has
led him to damn ;hurches ahd Sunday
schools, and consign his opponents to hell,
in about every tenth sentence of a fierce
and long-winded harangue. Nor is he to
be envied, who can so far forget common
deoancy as to abuse, in the foulest terms, a
man like Mr. Sanders, while he is absent
and urrable to defend himslf.
* Were there' any opposition paper in
which the, Demooetatic party could an
wer for' themselves, wd should give .a
verbatim report of the speeches, being
thoroughly oorivinced that the 6rators them
selves, would, in this, find their severest
punishment. As it is the whole proceed
ings were a great gain to the Union party.
Jungo e :yhew, after repeating a para
graph of the printed Union platform, de
ldared it to be his policy. .So far, he is
right. As a matter of taste we should not
like to be one of his politioal friends. lie
informed them that he was sound on the
goose-queslion, and therefore he demanded
their suffrages. Now the geese being nat
urally most interested in this question, the
Judie must have thought that every goose
wouid naturally vote for him, which we
think likely, as a matter of fact.
The speeches of Messrs. Toole and Pem
:ýrton sounded most strangely in contrast
to those of the other orators. They were
manly, and came right out in good English.
tho' the sentiment was of so unmistakable e
nature as, we apprehend, will prevent any
real Democrat or northern man from voting
that ticket. We pardon the young gentle
man who related iEsop's fable of "The Ass
in the Lion's Skin," feeling convinced that
the allusion would not have been made,
had there been a looking glass in his bed
room. The speakers who pointed to the
pole with a red.pennant on it, and declared
it to be that flag whose memory would be
dear to them, and whose honor they would
uphold with their lives, must remember
that though turkeys and bulls run after a
red rag, as a general rule, men don't.
at te sceona meeting, the candidate for
Delegate, Col. McLean was absent. It
was much the same as the first, and the
party getting ashamed of it, it subsided in
formally. There was just one good in the
whole management. A foolish individual
who disturbed the meeting was summarily
ejected-and so ought any man to be, who
forgets himself so far as to meddle with
that which does not conoern him. We
go in for free speech and responsibility.
Our advice in such matters is, that the of
fending parties be waited upon by some
stout fellow, with instructions to introduce
b:is shoemaker to the culprit's tailor, and so
end the affair.
We can't say whether the rise in paper is
the cause of it, but the Democratic ticket
is weak, and so thin, that it can be seen
through in a moment. If the candidates
are not dead, some are speechless. Apart
from the meeting proper, there was some
solace to be derived from the music, which
was really excellent. Waugh's band would
be an attraction anywhere, and in these
mountains, if our band were gone, one of
the best things in town would be lost. Too
much praise cannot be awarded to the
members of this excellent musical compa
ny for the pains-taking and persevering ef
forts which have resulted in such artistic
and delightful performances.

we have reason to believe that the promi

to Union people (and amoog thce the pres

staunch in its advocacy of all Union prin

whom we have long maintained busiues re

Messrs. Tilton & Co. will please put us

We beg to return our thanks to our

Our forccs have taken and hold the line
of works on Chapin's farm below the bluffs.
On Friday, a desperate attack was made
by a column of 14,000 fresh troops from
Petersburg by the- ears. Weitzel having
changed Hicktnan's division to the left to
prevent flanking, met them and drove them
back three times. They retired, leaving
their dead and wounded on the feld. Stan
nard was wounded in the arm while stand

and finished the work so well begun. Lee
commanded in person. The North Caro
linians waved their handkerchiefs among
the trees and ran into othr lines--refusing
