general thing, devoid of interest. Gen.

as a matter of course, a great many harsh
accusatinos and fierce denunciations were
ventilated. But to what purpose ? Slang

TjORETTO, April 4, 1B63.
To the Editor of The Alleghanian :
. In these evil times,' when- the spirit of loy
alty in our midst is threatened to be sup
pressed by the heresy and calnmny of traitor
ous demagogues, it behooves every true lover
of bis country to be more vigilant and active
than ever in his devotion to a government
under whose auspices he received andparpok
of the cherished fruits of our republican
institutions. No selfish or partizan motives
should actuate the good citizen to say oP.do
aught against a government that ha3 lui at
his feet its choicest gifts, and which now in
return only nsks to be supported in Pushing
a rebellion the object of which is, to obliter
ate the golden page of our country's fame,
and to leave vacant htr place tjmong-the
great family of Nations.. "What a source of
regret, sorrow and annoyance it is to see
men who have lived and prospered undc-rlhis
best of governments, who have enjoyed.. 1s
protection, who have basked In it3 recurity,
liberty and freedom, now scornfully -turn
their backs to its appeal for assistance to
preserve these same privileges for their Js
At the breaking out of thi3 rebellion,
leading men, democrats, professed their devo
tion to the Union, by ignoring in public all
pretensions to partizan doctrines until' this
rebellion would be put dow-n ; but the braves
who left Cambria had scarcely commenced
their campaign of privation .aud hardship,
till some of these same men exhibited their
cloven foot by repeated denunciations of the
war, and by wishing for tho slaughter of
their friends and neighbors who hid gone to
oppose the common enemy.- Any man who
is notorious for his loyalty to the-Government
through good and evil report is distasteful to
them. Kven that veteran of, their own party,
Andrew Johnston, is set up ns a target for
their spleen, and the Senator, from this dis
trict, in a late speech opposing the resolution
tendering the use of the Senate Chamber to
Gov. 'Johnston, in a spirit of triumph, in
quires, "VYhere is Andrew Johnson daring
the existence of this rebellion ? Until this
hour has he shown himself in the front of
battle?" In the same triumphant spirit and
with equal propriety might we not inquire,
"Where has the Hon'. Win. A.. Wallace been
during the existence of this rebellion ? ' The
answer is plaiu. He was at home, amoug
the lofty pines of Clearfield couuty, plotting
against the fair and loyal names of those who
stood by and who arc still true to the gov
ernment. Those jnaligners of "loyalty and
virtrre tell u3 they are for suppressing this
rebellion, while at the same time they are
trying to mislead the honest but uulettered
yeomanry, and counselling them to resist the
laws and endeavoring to inaugurate blood
shed and insurrection in our midst.
One ol the leaders of the Democratic Club,
in a conversation, -recently remarked, "Let
the Union go ; each State can take care of
itself." If this is the motto of that club, and
the kind of doctrine they are endeavoring to
promulgate, they well deserve the" sacred
name of Union ! Even here in the unassu
ming village of Loretto, the ugent3 of treason
are at work, and do not fail on even-occasion
to whisper words of disloyally into the ears
of those whom they can lead astray. A dis
graceful sccue occurred here last week. A
Union soldier, who had been away in the
service of his country for nearly two years,
came home iu a delicate stale of health to
visit his family. During his stay, he engaged
in a tliscussion on the war subject with one
of the ton ton of this village. The loyal sol
dier of course could not agree with the dis
loyal citizen, which so enrnged the latter
that he set his dog on the soldier I Where is
there peace or protection as long as the loyal
citizen or the careworn soldier is thus out
raged and insulted? We have only to war
and hope for the ultimate success of our
cause, and when this is attained, which will
undoubtedly be the case sooner or later, what
whining apology for their base apostacy can
these demagogues invent? They will be
treated with that scorn and contempt which
thev have merited, . and. their children will

A friend kindly sends us the subjoined
report of a so-called Democratic meeting,
recently holdcn iu the romantic and pic
turesque village of Munstcr, Munster tp.
If we are to believe his narrative and
who will question the veracity of our cor
respondent ? then is Munster evidently
strongly tinctured, with viperine proclivi
ties, and her inhabitants, eomc of them,
ripe for "trefcon, stratagem and spoils'
At least this would be a pardonable con
clusion, seeing that they the Munster
men above indicated listened to and
tacitly endorsed the sentiments enunciated
by the orators of the day. The latter, by
the way, were, all "of Ebensburghian ex
traction, and. bright and shining lights in
the "Club" of this place : .
Cbkssov, Apr: 6, 18C3.
To the Editor of The Alleghanian
Happening to be in the immediate vicinity
of Munsterj I attended the Copperhead meet
ing, held iu that place on Tuesday afternoon,
30th ult., for the express purpose of satisfy
ing myself as to the real objects of Democratic
Clubs'; and believing that an epitome of the
proceedings would not be amiss, I herewith
furnish the result of my observations.
"Aug. Durbin, a Breckinridger, presided.
Mr. Kinney, another admircrof the immaculate
John C, made every motion on that day, all
of which were duly seconded by another Breck
inridger arid carried, while the Douglas fra
ternity, of whom there were about a dozen
in attendance, evidently seemed under the
weather, and had nothing to offer.
On motion of J. Kinney, Jos. M'Dor.ald
was called upon to vouhsafe his views. 1
will not shocl thj mora! feelings of your
readers by any quotations from the gentle-,
man's bombastefibrt ; sul!ice it to say that,
if the young men of the country are to be
enlightened on the grievances of which the
immaculate Democracy complain by such
language fcs the gentleman used, then indeed
will they.be experienced, if not in what
characterizes the good citizen, at least in the
vice and immorality of mankind, particularly
visible at Copperhead meetings. .
Mr. Noon was next introduced. He started
out by stating that he felt a pride in address
ing the citizens of Mun?ter township, because,
iu his official capacity as District Attorney,
be-had never had anything to do with any of
them, and th'u was chiefly owing to the fact
of the township being Democratic. Ifr.
Noon might have staled in connection with
this, that, notwithstanding the oft-repeated
assertion that there are two Democrats for
every Republican iu the ranks of our army,
Munster township, overw helmingly Democrat
ic as it is, sent but ttco DemacraU to the war,
while the one-foarth of the Republican vote
of that township are in the ranks of our
army. Mr. Noon stated in legard to the Con
script Act, that it would be submitted to the
Supreme ourt for the purpose of testing i"s
constitutionality, and the speaker boaatcd
that four of the members of the bench be
longed to their organization and a decision
would undoubtedly be given in their favor.
In. that event the draft should be resisted to
the bitter end. He said differences had ex
isted in theDemocratic party, but these were
on minor issues both wings opposed section
alism, &c. People, certainly, have not forgot
ten the catnpaigu'of ltsCO, when -cither wing
of the infallible Democracy denounced the
other as being sectional, and hastening the
country to ruin.- These are things whereof
the memory of man doet run to the contrary.
Mr. Johuston was then invited to-culighten
the people of Munster township, which he
did, taking good care not to compromise his
fill ttre pro rpcclt by any ill-timed expressions.
He was lc?s severe on. Old Abe than his pred
ecessors, which evidently did not please his
audience. Among other sage predictions, he
prophesied that Gen, M'Clellan would be the
uext President, &c. .
Mr. Ilasscn mercifully condescended to
entertain his friend- with a' few remtrks,
consisting of humorous but stale quotation?,
which his particular admirers swalluwtd with
great gusto. In regard to the Conscription
Act, he reiterated the boast of Mr. Noon that
lbs Supreme Court would pronounce it un
constitutional, and counseled hjs fiicuds if
they had two cows to sell ope aud purchase a
gun, with which to resist the law !
Not one of the speakers suggested any
courae to pursue with reference to tho adjust
ment of -onr present difficulties. They ap
peared to think that the solvation of the
country depended only upon the formation of
Democratic lubs and the resistance cf the
draft. Some other trifling business ot a
like character was transacted, when jr. Kin
ney moved to adjourn, which motion was
seconded by another Breckinridger, and duly
carried. Aud so the curtain fell. Wusn't it
a lizzie? 1 -" - ALEXANDER.

WJmrea, the "Senate ofthe XTnited
States, devoutly recognizing the supreme
authority and just government, of Al-'
mighty God, in all the affairs f men and
of nations, has, by a resolution, requested
the President to designate and ct apart
a day for national prayer and humila
tiou; . m ..
And whereas it is the duty of nations,
as well as of men, to own their dependence
upon the overruling power of God, to
confess their sins and transgressions, in
humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that
geuuine repentance will lead to mercy and
pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth
aunoniiced iu the Holy Scriptures and
proven by all history, that those nations
only are blessed whose God is tho Lord ;
And inasmuch as we know that, by
His divine law nations, like individuals,
are. subjected to punishments and chas
tisements iu this world, miy we not justly
fear that the awful calamity of civil war,
which now desolates the land, may be but
a punishment iuflicted upon us for our
presumptuous siu3, to the needful cud of
our national reformation as a whole people?
We have been the recipients of the choic
est bounties of. Heaven. "We have been
preserved, these many j'ears, in peace and
prosperity. Wc have grown iu numbers,
wealth, aud power as no other nation has
ever grown. But we havo forgottoa the
gracious haud which preserved us in peace
aud multiplied and enriched and strength
ened us ; and we have vainly imagined, in
the deceitfuluess of our hearts, that all
these blessings were produced by some
superior wisdom aud virtue of our" own.
Intoxicated with unbroken success, we
have become too ?elf-fufficient to feel the
ueccssity of redeeming aud . preserving
grace, too-proud to pray to the God that
made us : -
It beno-ives us, men, to nuiuwcou
selves before tho offended Power, to con
fess our national sins, and to pray for
clemency and forgiveness.
Now, therefore, iu compliance with the
request, aud fully concurring in the views
of the Senate, 1 do, by this my proclama
tion, designate, and set apart TllL'KsnAY,
the 30th day of Al'iilL, lcUi, a9 a day. of
national humiliation, fasting, and prayer.
And I do hereby request all "the people
to abstain oa th'nt day from thcirordinary
secular pursuits, aud to unite, at their
several j lv;es ot public worship, and their
respective homes; iu keeping the diy holy
to the Lord, and devoted to tho humble
discharge of the religious duties proper to
that solemn occasion.
All this being done, in sincerity, and'
truth, let us 'then .rest humbly iii the hope
authorized by tho Divine teachings, that
the united cry of tho nation will bi heard
on high, and answered with blessings, no
!ess than the pardou uf our national siti?,

The political aspect of the present strug-
Hio is instructive ana suirirestivc. lien
the rebellion first assumed the aspect of
war the political parties of the country
were divided according to their traditions
and doctrines. The Republican -sparry,
looking to the extinction' . of slnvcrr.
thought that the secession of the South j
would make a strong, free, and antagonis
tic republic in the borders of the slave
Spates, and eventually secure the freedom
of the slaves. The Duuocfatic party,
following their own -pro-Iavcry .instincts,
and viewing the Southern States as a
constant source of power,' were anxious to
preserve ihem in the Uuion, if for no
other purpose "to; ntieast, secure their
rotes in every Presidential election. To
these men the rebellion was a fjuestiou of
polities. At first they treated it as such,
and the masses ot the party were euthu-t-astic-iu
favor of the opiuious I have cxr
pressed. We iiow see another contrast.
The leaders of the Republican party are
unanimous in declaring tiiat this war can
ouly be prosecuted to one issue, and that
the L nion ; that whatever el.se may enter
into it, wc can only emerge from it a free,
happy, and united nation. The masses of
the Democratic party, as "citizens and
patriots, share this feeling, even while the
leaders are notoriously antagonistic to any
war that looks to the integrity of the Uu
ion and anxious for separation. This re
sult hns produced happy effects, and must
be regarded as the gfvat lesson of the war.
Ihe mafses of the two parties are harmo

republic can never be broken. The rebels

be reunited. Here is the Usue formed at j
