With the present number, we commence
Vplume 6 of The Alleghanian. . Like a resist
less torrent, over which there can be no con
trol, old Time is bearing our bark onward,
onward, onward, unremittingly and unceas
ingly, onward, until now we begin to feel
that we indeed live. The first four or five
years of a newspaper's existence are merely
probationary. If it succeeds, through' the
favor of God and the partiality of friends, in
coming successfully through them, then it
may be said it has passed the tumultuous
fchoals of public opinion the chief danger
threatening it, and emerged into water
which is never but calm and clear. Poetic
ally speaking, in this event, it is a chrysalis
which has cast off its doubts and fears and slow
ploddings, and come forth a strong, glorious
winged butterfly. "We think we have passed
these shoals, andbelieye ve are now old enough
and strong enough to walk by ourseif, and to
talk for ourseif, and to go on and battle of
ourseif with tho brave, bewildering world.
Wo shall try the experiment, at the very
least. If we fail, do us the honor to believe
that we go down with the Captain at his
post, the man at the wheel, and our colors

We have said before, and here say again,
that Union failures and Union discourage
ments constitute the chief grounds of hope
fcr M'Clellan's election. It is beyond dis
pute that were our armies now decisively
triumphant, and the rebellion utterly
quelled, M'Clellan would 6tand not the
ghost of a chance of being successful.
"Who does not know that the capture of
Atlanta eoupled with Sheridan's late bril
liant achievements in the Shenandoah
Valley have run M'Clellan sterck down to
a very low figure in the market, ? And
who docs not know that the taking oi
Petersburg and Richmond would still fur
thcr depreciate it, until it would be quo
ted at only a mere nominal figure'' In
case the bubble of rebellion wero to burst
before November, is it not plain as the
nose on your face that M'Clellan would
be emphatically a "dead cock in the pit?"
Just in proportion as the fortunes of the
nation sink, M'Clellan's chances rise j and
just in proportion as the fortunes of the
nation rise, M'Clellan's chances sink.
The rebels in the South understand
this fully. They know full well that the
nominee of the Chicago Convention is
being run in their interest, and they
further know that union defeats alone can
insure- hw election. Hear the Richmond
Examiner oa this very point : "The
South is to act the controlling part in the
November election. Tho issue of Novem
ber is to be decided by the armies in Vir
ginia and Georgia. Lincoln's whole hope
of re-election begins and ends in military
success. The success must not be mod
erate, but great enough to promise a de
cisive influence in securing the objects fur
which he is conducting the tear" Here u
a direct admission on the part of the
special organ of Jeff. Davis, that "military
success" will be the death of M'Clollan and
the Democratic party at the November
election. If Lincoln "secures the objects
for whieh be is eonducting the war," then
he will be triumphantly re-elected. Now,
what are Lincoln's "objects" in this war?
Simply the overthrow of the rebellion and
the restoration of the authority of the
general government in all the States.
According to the Examiner, M'Clellan
standi no chance, except upon the con
tingency of the defeat of our armies.
And hence it -is,
the latter to
be their peculiar friend, the rebels are so
particularly anxious to make military
headway just now.
Let us allow the Examiner to argue the
question further.. In the courso of the
same article,, it says : "The South is
fighting for peace. For the first time in
four years is there a prospect of securing
this long and arduously sought desiderat
um. All the powerful iuducenient3.which
have nerved Ler to the struggle for four
years are now concentrated in the space of
two montlis. - We can afford any sacrifice
collectively and individually to make cap
ital of these two months. Every expedi
ent should be used to pile up strength in
the eight weeks of the crisis at hand. In
all probability, the next tixty days uill de
cide the contest." What can we desire
more plain, frank and uuequivocal than
this acknowledgement that the re-election
of Lincoln will "decide the contest"
r against the rebels ? On tho other hand,
they avow the election of M'Clellan will
give them "peace," which, they 6ay and
know, means independence.
The Examiner concludes two columns of
this talk thus : "In one way, and in one
way only, can we influence the result,
(the November election.) It is by stri
king tome quick and fierce llotcs now, both
by land and sea." That is it. If the
rebel armies can be made to triumph,
then M'Clellan goes up like a rocket ; if
our armies achieve victory, M'Clellan
drops liko the stick. Now, we earnestly
ask our Democratic friends under which
flag are you sailing ? Which government
receives aid and comfort from your votes?
Is not a vcte for M'Clellan a direct vote
for rebellion and Confederate indepen-
I aence r ine examiner says so, ana me
Examiner the confidential organ of the
Jef Davis dynasty. They so understand
it. Again, who so blind that he cannot
seo that the way to make an end of the
rebellion and bring about peaoe is to re
elect Lincoln ? The rebels acknowledge
that his re-election would seal their des
tiny and bring their hellish plans of dis
union to discomfiture.
What a spectacle before high heaven
and among men does the so called Demo
cratic party present I A party that can
only flourish on tho smoldering ruins of
the country ; a party that rises in power
a3 the nation sinks ; a party that engages
in mad carnival over the shipwreck of our
nearest and dearest iustitutions ! This is
no fancy sketch the tact that their nom
inee receives the support and applause of
the rebels in arms abundantly establishes
its entire truthfulness. George 13. M
Clellan, there is no disguising the fact, is
tha candidate of the party of treason.
Rebel sympathizers North support him,
and the Southern rebels themselves lend
him their heartiest aid and encourage
ment. Honest Democrat ! will you, can
you vote for such a man 7

When the rebel General Early started
out on his tour of offensive operations
against the North, the Richmond papers
exultingly proclaimed that he had gono to
"stump Pennsylvania for the peace patty.''
Had he succeeded in invading and laying
waste our fair State, it is beyond contro
versy he would have done the "peace'
cause yeoman service. Rut one Sheridan,
who writes his name Phil U., interfered
with his nice littlo stummmr plans. He
met Early, and impressed it upon him
that it is the loyal sentiment that the
"peace" movement is played out beyond
the power of resuscitation, and that hence
forward good, old-fashioned war is the
card. The meeting between tho two Gen
erals oceurred in the Shenandoah Valley,
at aud along by Winchester, and Early
was so impressed by the cogency of Sher
idan's arguments that he presented the
latter with about a dozen aud a half of
cannon, a large number of caissons, smal
arms, and the like, together with
0 ' '
several thousand prisoners, and then pre
cipitously retired Richmond-ward. He
will not likely make his appearance in the
same locality soon again. The "peace
interest arc highly iudignant that their
champion has thus been obliged to sue
cunib to the force of circumstances. They
hear the Union men toast Sheridan's feat
as a elorious victory, but they, on the
coutrary, look upon it in tho light of

As the draft for Cambria county under
the late call of the President has been
made, resulting in the election of some
five hundred conscripts, it may be. well to
make plain to these "victims" who they
are to thank for the unfortunate condition,
in which they are placed. Let it be
remembered, then, that in August, 18dl,
at a time when men were volunteering
aster than the Government could accept
them Gen. M'Clellan, then commander
of the Army of the Potomac, notd peace'
candidate for President, demanded of the
War Department that a draft lehiade at

Dear Sin : As tho approaching election i3
the most important ever known to ihe Amer

without distinction of party, and discuss
the great questions now before them at such
times and places as may be fixed upon by the
respective County Committees.
binccrely hoping that this suggestion wia
meet your approval, promising that on my

Dear Sir : Your favor dated Sept. 12th is
just received, and contents noted. You eay
that "as tue approaching election 13 the most
important ever known to the American peo
ple, i" propose to meet our fellow-citizens,
without distinction of party, and discuss the
great questions now beiore thein at such times
and places as may be fixed upon by the re
spective County Committees." This is a most
reasonable proposition. You are a candidate
for a high office, and if it is your desire to go
directly before the people and press your
claims, I see no good reason why you should
not be gratihed. Ihe right has always been
conceded candidates heretofore, and no doubt
will be now. At the very least, you have my
consent and full and entire approbation. I
shall furnish a copy of your letter to the
Union County Committee of Cambria county
the only Committee with whom 1 have any
influence at the earliest possible moment,
and if they can do aught to further your de
fire to "meet our fellow-citizens," it will re
ceive my hearty approval. I will acquiesce
in any arrangement that may be made by the
"respective County Committees" tending to
effect that object.
Very respectfully, vours,

Michael, whose surname was Paddy.
2. Barney begat Peter j and Pe ter begat
Patrick; and Patrick begat Michael; , ;
8. But who begat Barney remaineth a
mystery unto this day. -7
4: So air tho generations from Barney
to Michael aro three generations; and the
generations which were before Barney,
thoy are without number.
5. Now the birth of Michael occurred
in this wise: In the days of King George,
who reigned oyer Ireland and the regions
thereabout, Patrick dwelt in the land of
his fathers, even in the land of Tippcrary
0. And Patrick tilled the soil and caused
it to bring forth its' fruits in season, and
great was his store ot turnips and cabbage
7 And of the beasts of the field and creep
ing things Patrick had a oow and an ass,
and the goats and sheep and swine which
were bis, they were many; both male and
female had he them. .
8. And Patrick sent for cunning work-
men, ana built mm an nouse wnereia ne
9. And the walls thereof were mud that
was digged from a ditoh hard by the same ;
and the roof thereof was of sticks and
straws curiously wrought together;
10. Likewise there was a door in the
house, so that Patrick went in and out as
seemed good unto him; and when tho
door was shut there was darkness in the
house, and when it was open there was
11. And when he had made an end of
his building, Patrick rejoiced in his heart;
and all the people said one unto another,
behold the possessions cf Patriok : ther6
be none like unto them.
. 12. And there chanced to come to that
place, a damsel whose name was Biddy,
who was a descendent of her ancestors
and dwelt in the'eounty of Kilkenny.
13. And it was 60 that when Patrick
had looked upon Biddy, she was . comely
in his eyes, and "he thought within him
self, this damsel will X take unto myself
14. And straightway he made known
unto the damsel even as he had thought,
and behold he found favor in her sight,
and they became man and wife according
to the custom of that country.
' 15. Now Patrick and Biddy had dwelt
together many years, and yet issue had
they none ;
10. And Patrick's anger was' kindled,
and he began to upbraid her, saying,
Of a truth I have lived with thee these
many years, yet hast thou not given me a
son to comfort me in my old age :
17. Wot ye not that the flocks must
be watchod, and the ground tilled?
how shall I do these things, now that I
am old and my eyesight'dim?
13. And the woman answered him and
said, When I am silent, wherefore up
braidest thou me ? If thou art old and
unable of thyself to do those thing3 which
are needful, get thee a man servant to do
tho same for thee.
19. Then Patrick was pleased with the
words which the woman had spoken, and
he said unto her, forasmuch as thou hast
been faithful unto me, therefore will I do
even as thou hast said.
20. So Patrick sent for one Teddy,
whose surname was O' Toole, a sojourner
of that place, and he made him his man
servant, and gave unto him his meat and
drink and raiment.
21. And Patrick was pleased with that
which he had done, and Teddy served his
22. Howbeit after Teddy had become
a sojourner in his master's household, it
came to pass in due course of time that
Biddy gave Patrick a son.
23 And Patriok rejoiced and was ex
ceeding glad, and he called the neighbors
and made a great feast, and the table was
laden with the fat of the land, even with
poteen and buttermilk and potatoes;
24. And there was singing and dancing,
and playing upon the harp, even upon
the harp of Erin, and all the guests wero
25. And it was so that in the midst of
these things, Patrick called Teddy, arid
said unto him, inasmuch as thou hast at
all times'done the things required of thee,
therefore I trav thee become as one or
mine own household.
26. And Teddy answered and said,
Behold thy servant : do with me as thou
27. Then Patrick gave unto Teddy a
r . Jl A 1 " 4 rr
cup Ot poteen, anu luua. a uup evcu
himself, which "when they had drunk,
Patrick likewise gave unto Teddy ten
shekels ixnd a girdle, and made him. a
ruler over his affairs ;
28. And Patrick, ba'de Teddy till the
ground,! and charged him to take good
heed toftho cow and the ass and the goats
and sheip and swine, even as he had done
before. I V ;
29. And Teddy was well satisfied with
his lot Jand rejoiced aud made merry with
the gufsts." ' .' . , ;
SO. pnd when they bad done feasting,
and the music and dancing had come to
an end, Patrick cent the people away; for
it wasabout the hour the cock crows, and
there were no beds in the house to contain
