" Appearances justify suspicion : and when the
safety of a Nation is at stake, suspicion is a just
gruuiiu ui inquiry, ijt'fc US CDICT 1ULO 11 W1U1
candour and decency'." Junius.
t Our text was written many years ago ; but it
has lost none of its force by age, and is as appli
cable to the schemes of party politicians to-day,
as it was to the appearance of corruption which
existed in the British Ministry of 1769. Appear
ances justify the belief that an effort is being
made to displace and overthrow the true Union
element of this County, and substitute an cle
ment of opposition to the Administration in its
policy of putting down the rebellion, thus mak
ing itself a quasi ally of traitors. It is but a
short time since our County was ruled by a cor
rupt' set of pro slavery demagogues, and the
result is plainly felt in the onerous taxation with
which we are burthencd. By degrees our people
have been throwing off the incubus of pro sla
veryiam, which has weighed them down ; and
the Democratic party of four years ago is politi
cally dying but, as a dying man grasps at a
straw, it is making one last convulsive effort to
retain the place from "which it is about to be
forever hurled. With its true leaders in the
rebel Army, or wanderers from the face of loyal
men,, without a principle that it dare publicly
sustain, appearances justify the suspicion that the
party is seeking to accomplish by intrigue what
it dare not attempt by an open fight ; and such
a suspicion is a just ground of inquiry. In this
County we have a party organization of loyal
men; in unmistakeable terms they have an
nounced their devotion to the Union ; they
issued a general call for all loyal men to meet in
convention for the selection of county officers ;
tjey made no distinction in regard to the past
political proclivities of any man they called
upon all, if loyal. Where were these men who
are 'now in opposition to this Union party ? Was
not the Union platform broad enough for them to
island on ? Are their political predelictions so
atrong that they cannot unite with men of oppo
site political faith in the work of sustaining the
'Government ? Or in their greedy lust for office
are they blind to all principle? That some upon
this Independent ticket are stimulated by a mere
desire for the emoluments of office, no one can
doubt. That others arc endowed by deeper and
more damnable motives there is just ground for
suspicion ; and the former are being made the
tools of the latter. The Copperheads of our
County dare not breathe their sentiments they
are cowed into submission ; but, sullen and
morose, they aro silently working in the interest
of the slave power, hoping to obtain by strategy
the jaccomplishmcnt of Uieir ends. Be not de

to say that the Rebellion has received its final
doom, -at the ballot-box. But a short time 111

THE RIGHT OF CLAY COUNTY.

Hiawatha, Kansas, October 10, 1863.
S. M. Strickles :
Dear Sir I have just this moment- returned
from Washington, and found your letter of the
10th ult. I reply hurriedly, but satisfactorily to
mself. There can be no question that chapter
twenty-three of Acts of 1863 makes such unor
ganized counties municipal townships of the
counties to which they are attached for all other
purposes than those contained in the-" pro iso."
Such specific exemption does not affect the
general rights or liabilities of sucli unorganized
counties, but entitles them to every privilege of
a township, and sul jects them to every liability,
except as exempted in such ' proviso." Resject
fully, - ' ' W. W. GUTHRIE, Atfy Gen.

TO THE PUBLIC.
Understanding that the men, or party, who
take issue with the Unconditional Union Party
of Uiis county, have placed, or are about to place,
my name upon their ticket as a candidate for the
office of County Commissioner, I take tliis oppor
tunity of saying that such. action is entirely un
authorized by me, and has my earnest disappro
val. I am an Unconditional Union roan, and as
such am a supporter of the present Administra-
t:on in its efforts to preserve the Government of
our fathers, and I sustain the President in his
Proclamation of Freedom, his suspension of the
writ of habeas corpus, and am in favor of arming
the negroes to fight rebels and traitors. I am
not an office seeker, and do not wish to be placed
upon record as seeking to ride into office upon
the votes of disaffected men and Copperheads :
and I wish it understood that I shall support
the action of the late Union Convention, which
so boldly and plainly enunciated its principles.
As I said before, I wish no office, and as an old
soldier my' highest ambition is to lay down my
life, if need be, in defence of my country.

Abraham LincolnPresidenfrof the United

of the several States when called into active
service, do issue this my proclamation, call
ing upon the Governors' of the different
States' to raise .and' have enlisted into the
service -of the United States for tbe'varions
companies and regiments in the. field from
their respective States their quota of 500,
I farther proclaim that the. volunteers
that are called out and duly enlisted shall
receive pay, premium and bounty, as here
tofore communicated to tho Governors of
the States by the War Department, through
the Provost Marshal Generals by special
letter. I further proclaim that all volun
teers received under this call as' well as all
others not heretofore credited, shall be duly
credited and deducted from their quotas
established for tho next draft. '
I further proclaim that if any State shall
fail to raise their quota assigned toft by the
War Department, under' this call,- then a
draft for the deGciency shall be made in the
State or in the District 'of said State for
due proportion of said quota, and the said
draft shall commence on the 5th day 'of
January, 1864. I further proclaim that
nothing m-tbis proclamation-shall interfere
with existing orders, or with those -which
may be issued for the present draft in the
States where it-is in 'progress," or where it
has not yet been commenced. The quota
of the States and Districts will be assigned
by the War Department through the 'Pro
vost Marshal's office, due regard being bad
for the men heretofore furnished, whether
by volunteering or drafting, and the re
cruiting will be conducted in accordance
with such instructions as have been or may
bo issued by that Department.
In issuing- this 'proclamation I address
myself not only to the Governors- of the
several States, but also to the good and
loyal people thereof, invoking them to lend
theirchecrful and effective aid to the meas
ure thusadopted, with a view to reinforce
our victorious armies now in the field, and
bearing our military operations to a pros
perous end, thus closing forever the foun
tain of sedition and cruel war.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set
my band, and caused the seal of the United

Success Certain. War a Permanent Institution.
Gen. Lane gets off. the following in bis
St. Louis speech :
I auDDoac there is no man within the
sound of my voice who has any doubt lr
the success of the Government in crushing
out the rebellion at an 'early day. I hope
it may be closed at once ) but if it takes as
long as it took England to reduce Wales to
submission, will favor fighting it out.
Immense chcering.J That was only 700
years Renewed cheers. J If it takes as
long to restore this Union as it took "our
fathers to establish it, all the efforts of
every true man should be put forth in sus
taining the Government in the straggle :
and when the rebellion is crushed we'have,
other little jobs. By that time we shall
have an army of 1,500,000 men, including
the negroes. That is a considerable jarmy.
We will have a navy equal to that of any
two of the strongest powers of the civilized
globe. Then with, this 'force, thV rebellion
crushed, we'll say to France, "The Monroe
dootrine must and shall be vindicated."
We'll say to another power, ,f You served
your execution on us when we were 'sick,
and insulted us, and now, Great Britain, we
throw down the glovo to you, and Canada
is the stake." ' ,
So far as your humble speaker is con
cerned, ho proposes to make war .a perma
nent institution until the rebellion is crush
ed, tho Monroe doctrine vindicated and
Canada won. 4
No douhi in our hearts tec arc not the
doubting party. It is the cowardly Cop
perhead ; it is the cowardly" rebel' sympa
thizer that doubts success, but, the Great
Being that rules for his own purposes has
procrastinated this war for no other pur
pose than that the nation may be' restored,
and restored to free all: fcheersl and he who
attempts to restore this Union' with slavery1,
isj in my, opinion, fighting 'against tho de
cree of the Almighty himself.
