: The Subscription price ef the Bcxlktxit
will, hereafter be 0i 8 Dollar and Fim
Ccsts per year, instead of Oss Dollar.
S7 announce this necessary advance to
our Subscriber! with some feeling of regret,
as we would gladly have avoided the in
crease of the price of onr subscription if we
cooKl have done -so with any degree of
justice to ourselves." The high prices of pa-
- per, ink and labor are each as to make it ab
' so!ately certain that the old price will not
' afford as a sufficient remuneration for our
- outlay, and we feel confident that our pa
trons are too gooerous to reqa ire at our hands
. such a sacriSce as we should be required to
make if we continued to provide them the
- paper at the low price of one dollar. The
' unprecedented advance in the prices of all
the means of living, consequential upon the
.. depreciated currency, and other exigencies
. of the times, impose upon os an unpleasant
. duty, but we rely upon the liberality of
. those who sympathise with the principles of
onr paper, and have so long generously sns-
tained as, properly to appreciate the neces
sity which compels it. We. hope by in
creased energy and attention to our paper
to increase its value to onr subscribers in
proportion as we have advanced the price.
As stirring events in the military world
. are now npon the eve of transpiring, it is a
good time for new subscribers to send in
their names and money. We shall be
happy to record a numerous list. ...
Th.o Rich vb. the Poor. ,
We have repeatedly stated that the legis
lation of the dominant party was aimed in
favor of the rich and against the poor man,
end that it was the aim of the ' administra
tion to create a monied aristocracy here the
same as exists in England. The New York
Times in an article a few dsys since admit
the truth of the charge. It says: .
"The property of the wealthy should not
be voted away by, or in anyway under the
control of the laboring classes, and the right
of suffrage should be reaulated between the
rich and according to their wealth."
We know of a good many mechanics and
. laborers who will resist manfully the pro
position to deprive them of the rights se-
cured to them by the Constitution. This
doctrine "take rare of the rich and the rich
will take care of . the poor," has been tried
long enongh in Europe and has proved an
entire failure. Let the laborers of the conn
tiy beware how they lend aid to any party
to enslave them. West Chester Jeffersooian
- OtrMr. Sherman said, in the Senate' he

Whilst we regret, and would reprove this

Scarcely a day passes bnt we hear even

nothing iu our whole political horiaon that
affords a well grounded hope of an early
improvement in our wretched and sicken

The administration of the govern raett Is
in the bands of men Utterly wild and reck

passed beyond their cootrol, and they are
drifting on, from day to day, at the mercy of

though it might aave something from the
institutions of tbe country, would inevitably
destroy those who inaugurated the war.

No supporter of tbe Administration dare

But whilst we see nothing; in the present
aspect of affairs to encourage an early solu

Tbeooly hope fortbe country, if any hope

It may be, at this late day, woen a cruet

Philadelphia Correspondent of the West Chester
.... Philadelphia, April 25, 1861..
No man of ordinary intelleotual capacity
nobody, indeed, .bat a fool will deny
that our country is in a deplorable condi
tion. For three years, noder Abolition rule,
the North has been endeavoring to crush
what, at the outset, was callod, in fashion
able,, because "sensational" - newspaper
phrase, a "gigantic rebellion.' After this
lapse of time, with at. least a half million of
lives sacrificed, and four billions of dollars
expended, dare any man who has a reputa
tion at alake say, whether we are any nearer
tho accomplishment of the object for which
tjis war-was commenced than we were at
tbe beginning? - : -
For -what intention was the war com
menced? On the 14th of April. 1861, im
mediately after the surrender of Fort Sum
ter, Lincoln issued a proclamation calling
out- seventy-five thonsand men, for tbe
avowed purpose of capturing all tbe forts,
arsenals and national property then in the
new-made Confederate Government, - the
people of which bad aolemnly resolved to
be thenceforth free and sovereign, so far aa
respected their former position with the old
United States. This wss the purpose for
wbich the seventy-five thousand men were
called in bis proclamation. Afterward, see
ing tbe immensity of the job upon wbich he
bad entered, and the resolute determination
of the new I onfederate nation to hold their
own against all enemies, domestic or for
eign, be called out by proclamation, five
hundred thousand meo, which call was
cheerfully rexponded to by the States still
remaining of what constituted tbe old Un
ion. Since that time, as exigencies seemed
to require, in the estimation of the astute
trains of tbe Executive and those wbo con
trol bim, other drafts have been made upon
the flesh and resources of the Northern peo
ple to consnmmate the origioal design of
destroying tbe Southern Confederacy and
sutjugating tbe citizens thereof to tbe
domination of Northern or Yankee rule.
So far no one will be mad or foolish en
ough to deny, that this scheme has failed
entirely. It is true that from the fact that
the South has generally stood upon the de
fensive, the Northern armies have boen en
abled to penetrate, here and there, their
territory have captured aome towns and
cities along their coast and tbeir greatri vers,
where they had not the naval power to in
terpose, and where they consequently
fought against great odds.
But time, like the wine in the play, works
woDders, and now begins to loom up to our
astonished nision, the recuperated power of
the Confederacy, and to show what a peo
ple can do wbo are intent npon a settled
purpose of establishing a new nationality
and becoming a new member of tbe family
Now, then. wSat is 'the situation' to-day?
Where the ob olule ruler of a nation deter
mines to subdue an other by force of arras,
and inenrs enormous expenses for the trial,
which the people have to be ir, it is bis duty
to show an uninterrupted series of successes
tending directly to the main object. Can
Lincoln show this? Not by aoy means.
Not only, at tbe present time, are the
Federal armies unable to push their con
quests forth, but th-y are forced to give
under tbe presure of tbe military power oi

placet wbieb tbey bad already captured,

hundred prisoners including a Brigadier
General, attests tnis truth beyond all per
adventure or cavil. .
Indeed, we cannot say, from one moment
to another, whether our own territory
safe from tbe invasions of the enemy; and
we cannot deny that tbe Federal Capital is
just as much in danger from an attack

an attack of the Federal forces. Lee, with

that are placing as in a wrong position be

in a 'gordion knot.' and whether this knot is
to be cut by tbe sword or by tbe ennoing of

Affairs cannot long remain as they. are. If

should, in tbe interest of humanity, then
let tbe people, in a voice .of thunder, and
in a voice of thunder, and in tones clear
and nnspeakeable, asse't their legitimate
majesty and power. Let them awake as

thrown by tbe 'insane roo, that takes, the

and did splendid aervioe. We regret, how
ever, to learn tbat Col. James R. Branch,
who commanded that bearing his name, had
one of bis legs broken and was bruised by

It was by mere accident that this com
munity of Ofiacttt China Jews were dis
covered. The officer alluded to was in a
small vessel of war serving unde'r Comman

Urge town or city, tie was not at first very
graciously reeerved, but finally obtained an
interview witb the Chief be Sanded under
bis protection, and found to hie astonish
ment an iomense population- of Jews. In
no other part of tbe Chinese " Empire are
Jews to be found. 'They bave. their
own laws, and their chief officer is a Jewish
Rabbi. Tbey keep a standing army of
young men to protect their city. Tbeir
synagogues are tbe most beautiful buildings
to be seen in Europe.
Habits Like flakes of snow tbat fall
onperceived upon the earth, tbe seemingly
unimportant events of life rncceed one an
oioer. as tne snow gainers together, so
are our habits formed. No single flake tbat
is added to tbe Dile rjroduces a sensible
Change; no single action creates, however it
may exhioit, a man's character; but as the
tempest hurls the avalanche down the
mountains, and overwhelms the inhabitant
and bis habitation, so passion, acting upon
the elements of mischief, which pernioicus
habits bave brought together by unseen ac
cumulation, may overthrow the edifice of
truth and virtue. . . . . v , .
