The election id now over, and it is our
doty as good citizens to ubniit to it as
gracefully, as possible. Taking every
thing into consideration it is a wonder we
made bo good a fight as we did. Lin
coln is elected, but the States many of
them ran a very close vote. We had to
contend against the army, and an army
of officeholders with pockets full of
greenbacks, which they used with a lavish
hand. Our County deserves immortal
credit, for keeping up the majority as the
did. There were over five hundred more
votes polled nt the Presidential election
than at the general election a great many
of whom were returned soldiers. .Still
our majorty is only thirteen short of the
last election. In Philadelphia they have
the general government, the State govern
ment and the city government, making an
army of officeholders amounting to three
or four thousand, together with their
influence which they use very unscrupu
lously. They roll up such a majority
there that it is hard for the balance of the
State to overcome it. Pittsburgh is also
in the hands of the shoddyites, and forces
the vote up very strong.
Our party in this County, both north and
south is in very good condition, it never was
better nor stronger than at the present
time. The opposition has nearly all the
manufacturing and mercantile establish
ments in the County, but we have the
hard fisted operatives. If all ths lle
Clellan men of this County are traitors
we have a goodly number of them. One
thousand and thirty more traitors than
It is more than likely that the aboli
tionists will count out Governor Seymour,
of his election in New York. This is
very much to be regretted, he is a good
and pure man, one of the best in the
country. But a good man and a pure
patriot has no business to run for an of
fice the way the machinery of elections is
now conducted. Lincoln with a lare
army and navy at his back, and Seward
for prime minister, will elect whom he
pleases lie might as' well appoint a gov
ernor for these conquered provinces, as
letting the people go through the farce of
an election. lie might have appointed
Governor Morton in Indiana and saved
the people the annoyance of an election, j
which indeed was no election at all. j
Morton is by no moans the choice of the
people of Indiana, but he was Lincoln's i
cnoice ami ma soiuiers put mm in. Kiov.
Seymour is the choice of the State of
New York, but he is not Lincoln's choice
and.thorefore must be beaten The army
and the uavy is a very convenient thing to
fall back on, at an election. They will
have no copperhead ticket either in the
army or the navy, if the soldiers or the
tailors don't with to vote t loyal ticket
they can't vote at all. These officers will
not accommodate them with anything but
loyal tickets. Our County as we said
above is right and it is our duty to en
deavor to keep it sot Although the whole
comdry looks dart and W.rr so far as
the war and politics is concerned, still
Providence mav have something in store
for us that will dispel the gloom that
eeems to overshadow the whole country.
The Result Our Duty.
The election is over and the Demo
cratic party has been defeated. A ma
jority of the voters have decided in favor
ocontinuiug the policy of the present Ad
ministration. The total and immediate
abolition of slavery, the confiscation of
property, the reduction of sovereign States
to military provinces, the doctrine of re
admitting States by the vote of" one-tenth
over nine-tenths of the voters, have been
approved by the people. The doctrine of
military arrests, of the trial of civilians
by military courts, and of imprisoning
citizens at will without a trial at all ; the
suppression of newspapers and the pre
I vention of public meetings, as practised
by the Administration have also been en
dorsed. The war policy of the President,
including the devastation of the territory
through which our armies pass, and the
destruction of private property, as well
as the refusal to exchange white prisoners,
man for man, unless negroes are included?
has likewise been sustained by the votes
of the people.
It is true the Democratic part' has
cast more than a million and a half of
Votes. It is also true that more than the
difference between the Democratic and
Abolition vote is composed of those who
draw their immediate support from the
Administration. It is true that in Cam
bria county more than 200 votes of this
character were given ; and that at one of
the polls, soldiers w ho were stationed there
to prevent Democrats from voting, actu
ally were allowed to vote by Abolition
election officers, though not cuizeiiB of
Still, we are beaten ! and we are now
asked " what course should Democrats
pursue?" This question, it seems to us
admits of but one answer.
We must bow in submission to the
popular will, und acquiesce in the result,
however unfortunate it may be for our
country. Any other course would put
the Democracy in the wrong: and inflict
greater evils upon the country than ever
the rule of Lincoln, fatal as is that rule.
Neither are we to fold our arms in apathy,
and considering our country as lost, give
up all interest in our government. This
would be equally unjust to ourselves and
to our country. The true impulse of
every Democrat and every patriot should
be to never despair of his country. And
pitiable as our condition ihw is at home;
and degraded as we are made to appear
in the eyes of the civilized world, still
that Great Being that "has made and
preserved us a nation," may 6tay the
hand of the destroying angel, and restore
us to at least a portion of the blessings
heretofore enjoyed under Democratic Ad
ministrations. Let Demociats then maintain their or
ganization. Let them keep their columns
closed up, ready at all times, in the fu
ture, as in the past, to do battle for 'jiieik

laws. Though defeated, in their hands
is the power, and the only power that can
save us as a nation. And they may safe
ly rely that not many months can elapse,
until those now held together by the " co
hesive power of public plunder," will be
a divided and disorganized party, and the
country " redeemed, regenerated, and dis
enthralled from the horrors of Abolition

be well attended.

Barker and his Greyhound Todd
Gelling Facet lou.
So long as Barker's greyhound confined
his Jakey to us individually, we were well
pleased, and would never notice it, but
when this ignorant booby will permit
other people to be attacked by his grey
hound in hi Jakey, persons who are too
well informed and too respectable to asso
ciate with either the master or his dog,
wo will for one time at least give them a
We are well aware that it is hard for
an ignorant and illiterate man like Barker
to keep the leash on his hound all the
lime, particularly as he was badly kennel
ed and trained before this man of igno
rance and impudence got a hold of him.
Wo have no doubt this greyhound is
copying his literature after a celebrated
author who wrote in this town, under the
N0MMK I)E PLUME of SPLASHBOARD, and
whom this greyhound of Barker's, of all
others, would be expected to imitate and
remember. This young greyhound of Bar
ker's expends his wit, about being on a
bust, on empty demijohns, &c, &c.
We have no doubt the young hound
thinks he is well behaved, and so he is, and
wc trust he will remain so. But Splash
board, the celebrated author whom he
imitates, was n model of good behavior
at the young greyhounds age, and for
many years after. But he finally became
a prey to Bacchus, Venus and some other
of the heathen Gods, and was so leaky
and bhaky " that lusUixj was inevitable.
It was said by ons of our best citizens
in this town that that celebrated author
used to amuse himself on wet and stormy
days talking to the citizens in passing by,
giving his opinion of the weather and
charging thern in his book for it.
We advise this young greyhound of
Barker's not to indulge in the ridicule of
infirmities of his neighbor as he has been
doing. He not long since carried on a
correspondence between Abraham Lincoln
and a poor fellow here, whom nature had
made a simpleton, and unsettled the crea
tures mind worse than it was, for the sake
of meddling mischief.
This' young greyhound has a great deal
of human nature t contend against,
" Men do not gather gripes off thorns or
fi-s off thistles." We trust he will leans
hereafter that Jackeyisrn and vulgarity is
not wit, that it is unmanly to impose on a
simpleton, that it is unfair to attack men
who arc not before the public, and have
na nowspaper to deft-nd them.
II IE REBELS REJOICING OVER
THIS RE-ELECTION OF LIN
COLN. It was telegraphed from Washington on
Saturday, to journals in the Administra
tion interest, that the Richmond journals,
having received the news of the re-election
of Mr. Lincoln, were very doleful,
etc., but the journals themselves having
come along, so far from being doleful over
the result, they appear to lie quite jubilant
as the Tribune, Tmus, and the rest of the
Northern Abolition journals and here
are unanswerable evidences of the fact :
jFrom the Richmond Whig, Nov. 11.)
Our information is next topositie that
Mr. Lincoln has been re-elected. Few
have doubted from the fust that this would
be the result, and fewer still will regret it.
For ourselves, we feel with the great
cause for which we are struggling has es
caped a n al peril. The policy of concili
ation, of concession, and cajolery which
M'Clellan would have attempted was
something more to be dreaded than Lin
coln's armies and navies. There was
great reason to apprehend that such a
jiolicy would deceive, demoralize, and
divide the South. With Lincoln there is
no fear of this ; our people will continue
to stand as one man ; with him it is a
united South against a divided North.
With M'Clellan it might have been a
united North against a divided South, in
which event all we have been striving
in this four years' struggle would have
been lost. But Lincoln is to continue to
be the master of the Yankees, and the
sectrc of reconstruction vanishes for
ever. From the Richmond Enquirer, Nov, H J
Lincoln has been re-elected President
of the United States. His first election
could not surprise any one, for he was
wholly unknown ; but his re-election,
after four years' experience of his char
acter and capacity, will not fail to im
press the world with a very low opinion
of popular government. So far as the
people of these States are interested, the
re-election of Lincoln is entirely satisfac
tory. Fur us, lie is the right man in the
right place. We would not have had him
defeated, but gave all the influence of the
Enquirer to him. Our reasons were en
tirely selfish. We prefer the management
of this war to remain in the same hands
that have directed it for the last four
years. We prefer an ignorant, brutal
fool as Commander-in-Chief of the enemy
to any other man. General M'Clellan
might have given us more trouble, but we
have taken the measure of Lincoln and
know exactly his entire worthlessness.
The four years more of war, which his
election now makes sure, would not have
been avoided by the election of M'Clel
lan, but might have been conducted with
ability and given us more trouble than
Lincoln can possibly command. Thi re
election of Lincoln binds our people still
firmer together, and prevents the discus
sion a tiiscord which the election of M -Clellan
miirht have infrndnrrvl V Irnnw
that it means continued war, and our
country will prepare for it. There is no
prospect for neace. and it ia hpttnr for n
that we should know clearly the purpose
ot me enemy in tins matter than to have
been divided in opinion by the hopes of
peace, which the defeat of Lincoln would
have raised among our people. Let our
authorities begin immediately the work of
reorganizing the array, consolidating the
regiments, filling up the ranks, improving
the cavalry, and preparing for the spring
Opinions of the Press on the
I From the Boston Post, (Dem.)
The great battle has been fought, and
the victory won by our opponents. We
subaiit, not with an ill grace, to what
must be considered the voice of the peo
ple. The ballot-box has spoken, and we
abide the result. Still there is a strong
and healthful minority which will assert
us right to speak and criticise in the fu
ture as it has in the past, and to this mi
nority the nation must look for that
wlmlcsome restraint of power which, left
to its full sway, would sweep the country
We conscientiously supported the ad
ministration during the early period of the
war, when the crushing out of the re
bellion seemed to be the only motive that
actuated it, and we as conscientiouslv
opposed it when that motive was Iosrt
sight of, and excess and tyranny took
form and shape. Wo conscientiouslv op

coln, and advocated the election of M'
Clellan, believing that a change of men
would sooner bring about a settlement of
the difficulties that are weighing down the
The re-clcction"of Mr. Lincoln, how
ever, does not offer repose to the Demo
cratic party ; more than ever is their duty
made apparent. We have a right to de
mand of Mr. Lincoln that he shall so
fulfil his pledges that a new order of
things shall reijun in his cabinet. Mr.
Simon Cameron distinctly stated in Pitts
burg, September 30, that the re-election
of Air. Lincoln would ensure a totai re
organization of the cabinet ; that in fact
it was the nine qua won of his re-eiction.
Ijct Mr. Lincoln now that he has tak. n a
new lease of power, use it for the good of
his country, regardless of all " pressure"
to the contrary. Let him in the second
four years avoid the errors of the first,
and the whole country will give to him
that cordial support gave in 18G1 and
1SG2. Let fraud and imbecility no lon
ger influence the councils of the nation ;
1st Mr. Stanton and Mr. Welles be in
vited to retire to private life, and other
necessary reforms made, and the country
niay rise from despondency to confidence
and again et joy the blessings of security
and the impartial administration of law.
W e seek to indulge in no party malig
nance ; we simply ask that our rights as
a minority shall be respected. Wc be
lieve that if Mr. Lincoln will earnestly
set himself to the work of crushing out
the rebellion per sr, with out regard to the
clamors of radicals that this or that pet
measure of theirs shall be made a neces
sity, he can restore peace tvith the Union
and the Constitiitmn 1ufnrn thn rl.icf ..f
the first year of his new administration, j
and leave the government in the posses- j
sion of all its lpKi(ima(0 attributes of au- !
inonty in lull force.
f From the Boston Courier, Dem.
The responsibility is now upon the the
Lincoln administration and its supporters,
and we can only &vvait thft isguc' of the
policy winch they have for some time
past laid down. This policy is, not the
restoration of the Union, but the re
covery of the lost power of the United
States over revolted States, by means of
military subjugation and the abolition of
slavery. If thov 4;i h-
objects, they will be accountable for the
ruin of the country. We have too often
expressed our views upon this subject, to
need to reiterate them now. Experience
will soon test thn e i,c
. UUUIRO VI Wiwc I
views, and put to a severer trial than ever
ut-.ore capacity and ability of the ad
ministrate, to carry out t8 projects.
1 he die is cast. If We haJ duubl9 of
the results of a conciliatory policy to give
us Union, since things had gone so far,
assurcd.y ws have none in regard to the
measures relied upon by the administra
tion. A people, however weak, who are
threatened with subjugation and annihila
tion, become wondrously 8tron. No ra
tional person can expect that such a
struggle will end with success to the as
sailants during four years or forty years
lime wdl show whether it will not neces
sarily end otherwise, long before the ex
piration of the shorter time.
From the Rochester Union, Dem.J
As to the general aspects of the " situ
ation we have very little to offer ! But
it may fitly be remarked tfat in compari
son with the public interests involved, all
individual interests and considerations
dwindle into utter insignificance If any
Democrat experience a momentary twinge
of chagrin or mortification at the result,
let him consider the compensation afford
ed by a sense of exemption from respon
sibility which the defeat of his party
necessarily brings with it. For our own
part we are never dejected or cast down
by a political reverse. It is a consolation
of which the victor can never deprive the
vanquished, that, speaking generally, both
must share the same fate be it for weal
or for woe. Of the fruits of yesterday's
victory if they prove to be good, we and
ours will expect to enjoy our full share ;
if evil, they who produced those fruits
must partake as freely as we. To-day
they triumph and they rejoice. To-morrow
when the net effects of their suc
cess comes to be fully and correctly ap
prehended by a whole people restored to
to their sober senses (if that day ever
come) we will rejoice with them ; or,
they will mourn with us. May Provi
dence prove as gracious as His ways and
workings are inscrutable past finding out
may He grant that we shall be disap
pointed in the ultimate consequences of
yesterday's work, not they who are so
confident that it assures the speedy resto
ration of Union, liberty, and peace.
From the Philadelphia Age, Dem.J
Democrats and conservatives not ap
proving either the principles or policy of
Mr. Lincoln of course as American citi
zens, deplore the ills which they see loom
ing darkly in the future, as the result of
Tuesday's work. They, as citizens, must
share in the calamities in store fur our
common country calamities which their
judgment teaches them to be inevitable
if the present abolition policy be persisted
j m. i$ut, while they, as a portion of the
J American people, expect, and are pre
; pared to endure their share of the general
adversity which they believe 7wst follow
the rejection ot their principles at the
polls, they as individual citizens, will
have the proud consolation of feeling that
they have not contributed to produce the
evils that are to come upon us ; while as
a 7ary, they have escaped a fearful re
sponsibility, which for the sake of the
country, they were willing to assume,
f Fiom the Utica Observer. J
Conservative men can only see in this
result the destruction of the last hope of
the restoration of the Union, if not the
death warrant of our political institutions.
But for whatever may be the consequences,
they are not responsible. They have
fought long and well against that combi
nation of religious fanaticism, partisan
hatred, and official corruption, that assail
ed the principles on which our government
was founded, and under which only we
could hope for restored Union and peace.
What they have lost, in this great strug
gle, is the loss of the entire country ; and
they will face the new perils that dawn
upon us, with the consciousness that they
are as well prepared to meet them as are
those who hRve brought them upon the
ESoviue Avarice A Cow feeding
An extremely singular ciicurnstar.ee
which has no parallel that we are aware
of, took place yesterday by which a man
lost 214, and a cow lost her life. As
llit story is extraordinary in several re
spects, we devote some space to the de
tails. A driver, walking in front of his herd,
near the Brighton house, in taking some
tobacco from his pocket, inadvertently
dropped a roll of treasury notes amount
ing to $400. One of 'the cows, either
because of hunger or a desire to appropri
ate her owner's money picked it up, und
after adequate mastication swallowed the
precious morsel just at the moment that
the drover, through one of his assistants,
became aware of the fact that he had
lost his money, and that the cow had
eaten it An immediate search discovered
some small pieces of the notes about the
teeth and lips of the avaricious ruminant,
but deglutition had placed the money be
yond the present roach of its owner.
The cow was now to valuable to bo
sold, at least on the hoof. Digested
"greenbacks" would hardly pass current
in Third street, and yet all he had were
in danger of becoming thus worthless.
He conceived the notion of taking them
from the stomach of the cow. Proceed
ing to a slaughter-house she was killed,
the stomach opened and the money found.
Thus far the theory proved a success, but
of the notes was still such as to render
them unfit for the ordinary uses of com
merce. The mass was washed, strained out,
picked to pieces, overhauled aud minutely
examined. There it was, recovered, but
with an immense falling off in its ap
pearance and dimensions. After clean
ing jt the. drover took his money to the
collector of internal revenue for the first
district, where by patching, the unfortu
nate drover succeeded in saving 186 out
of the four hundred that had been eaten
T he meal was rather an expensive one
both to the cow and her owner ; for it
cost the hfe of one and $214 of the pe
cuniary wealth of the other Cincinnati
