mated several times, heretofore, the tire com
panies of this city arc beginning to feci the op
pression of taxes, Ac., on their property which
have, so far, been paid out of their own treasu
ries. We have always contended that the city
authorities should make liberal arrangements
for the nuintuiuance of our lir c department,
and we ure very sorry they have, us yet, failed '
to extend to our fire companies any encourugc
merit for the continnuiice of their organization j
Neptune Engine Co.. No. 2, at their meeting ;
on Thursday evening last, adopted the follow- i
ing resolutions: "Resolved, That Neptune En
gine Co. do hereby demand of the Common 1
Council of the City of Phicerville, that they
assume the interest accruing upon the debts
against this company, and that they make pro- !
vision for the monthly payment thereof. Be
aolred, That unless the said Common Couuci|
accede to the above demand, we hereby declare
our company out of service, and instruct our ,
Trustees to advertise our apparatus for sale
elsewhere.” We liijpc, sincerely hope, thut the !
disaster to the city intimated in the la; ter res.
olution may he avoided by the Common Coun
cil acquiescing in the claims of the Companies
composing our Department. No. ], we under

A Ci RiostTr.—Mr. W. B. Ditson, of Upper

remarkable curiosity. H is a limb from a
peach tree, witli two branches, one bearing

It wus grown in bis orchard in Upper riuccr-

Abolition traitors—Higby, Shannon A
Co.—who draw upon the Custom llouse
Corruption fund to pay their traveling
and other expenses—brazenly tell the
people that the Demacratic party is re
sponsible for the war. This is cool, in
the face of the assertion of Douglas,
which assertion has never been disput
ed, that “ the sole responsibility of our
disatrrtjfment, and the only difficulty in
the way of an amicable atfjustroe/.t, was
with the Republican party in the face
of Greeley’s infamous declaration, repeat
ed and indorsed by the Republican party,
that the Republicans “ would not agree
to the Crittenden Compromise, and pre
ferred the Chicago Platform to fifty
Unions in the face of the statement of
Den Wade, that the Republicans would
rather sec the “Union crushed than yield
an inch to the demands of the slave
The origin of the war, ns every man
who has the capacity to follow «"«<: to
their “ logical consequences,” or to trace
back effects to their origin, was, beyond
all question, the intempernto agitation of
the slavery question by Northern fanat
ics—an agitation begun and perversely
and persistently continued by Sumner,
Wade, Giddings, Garrison, Greeley, Lin
coln and other Abolition leaders, who had
neither moral nor political jurisdiction over
the exciting subject which they assumed
to determine. In the North, it is a well
known fact, the press, the forum, the the
ater, the pulpit, Vic tavern, the street
corner, every place resounded with excit
ing utterances and violent denunciations
of an institdtion prevailing in the South,
which the North did as much as the
South to establish; but over which, ac
' cording to the Federal Constitution, only
i the States in which it remained, had any
legal or moral control. So harsh, so bit
ter, so persistent, so implacable was
Northern denunciation of Southern sla
! very, for so many long years of angry
disturbance, that the forbearance which
the South wantonly insulted and provok
ed as she was, patiently displayed, was
misinterpreted by the fanatics of the
Sumner school. That forbearance was
the highest possible manifestation of rev
erence and love for the Constitution and
the Union. But all this was miscon
strued by the Abolitionists. In their
arrogance of numerical strength, and in
their Pharisaical pretension to moral su
periority, they impudently assumed juris
diction, morally and politically, over a
great question which was as exempt from
their touch, as were the relations they
boro to their own laborers. But to
Northern Abolitionists, no right, how
ever sacred or delicate, is inviolable. It
is utterly in vain that one of the leading
objects of the Federal Government, plain
ly declared in the preamble to the Con
stitution, is to “ insure domestic tran
quility ;” agitation of a question in a form
they knew to be utterly destructive of the
repose of tho South, they carried on, spite
of all Constitutional restrictions. South
cm statesmen warned them that it would
lead to resistance, but they laughed at
the warning.
The Abolitionists, conscious of their
strength, mul mistaking the forbearance
and loyalty of the South to the Constitu
tion and the UTiion, for intimidation, re
solved to carry on their fanatical schemes
for the overthrow of slavery. They de
creed in their political councils, local,
State and national; they declared in their
presses, pulpits, and from the stump;
they wrote it down in their platforms ; |
they vowed before heaven and earth, in
every form of utterance, that slavery
should never be extended in the territo
ries, thecommon property of North and '
South, that not another slave State should
ever be admitted into the Union ; and
they declared that the decisions of the
Courts, recognizing the Constitutional
rights of slaveholders to enter the com
mon territories, should be overruled.
They went further, and said to insure
this, the Courts themselves should be re
organized and conformed to the exac
tions of Abolition sentiment. Lincoln, in
public debate with Douglas, declared that
the Union could not exist, composed in
part of slave and in part of free States—
that all must be free or all slave—that
the agitation must go on till such crisis
should be reached. Palpably antagonis
tic as such sentiments arc to the princi
ples of the Constitution, Seward caught
them up, and boldly proclaimed the “ Ir
repressible Conflict” doctrine and the
Republican party indorsed his sentiments,
Lincoln succeeded and the triumph of the
“Irrepressible Conflict” doctrine was pro
claimed. Thus was the Federal Govern
ment attempted to be made a great en
gine of oppression, operating upon ques
tions and interests not only not commit
ted to its charge, but expressly exempted
from its touch. On the election of Lin
coin bis heretical and disorganizing dog
mas were attempted to be enforced. The
South, with instinctive and practical sa
gacity, penetrated the designs <tnd ten
dency of these dangerous doctrines. To
submit to their practical enforcement,
was to acquiesce in ruin and dishonor.
Flushed with political victory, Lincoln
and Seward, at the bead of the irrepres
| sibles—a grand army of fierce and furl
' ous fanatics and greody office-seekers—
■ prepared to enforce, at the point of the
; bayonet, having possession of the purse
and the sword, their ruinous dogmas,
j The South, worn out by forbearance and
j suffering, seeing iiiut neither Constitution
j nor courts, nor fraternity, could bind the
successful party, to their obligations,
signified their purpose to withdraw from
a Union in which their rights were de
nied them. They were wieffingly told
they could uot be kicked out of the '
Uoioo, and by threats, jeers and outra
ges—threats of another John Brown
raid, on a grander scale, winked at if not
authorized by the Administration—they
were provoked to resistance. Thus we
have clearly traced, from historical facts,
the origin of the war to the doors of the
Abolitionists, the party which now hold
the reins of Government.
Democratic Meetings. —The heartfelt
enthusiasm which everywhere greets the
Democratic speakers is the harbinger or a
brilliant victory on the second of next
month. The Abolitionists arc discour
aged and disheartened, and are discuss
ing the propriety of withdrawing their
ticket They ask, with faltering tongues
and pallid cheeks, what is the matter
with the people? Who ever heard of so
many large and spirited Democratic
meetings ? What has caused the im
mense gatherings of the masses ? Arc
the people all turning copperheads?
Who speaks at these meetings ? Such
ened Abolition leaders, who sec that their
political days arc numbered, and that
their party and platform are becoming a
by-word and a reproach. They call the
Democratic speakers traitors, thinking
by such vile slanders to turn the masses
against them. Is it not strange that so
many thousands will assemble to hear trai
tors, and applaud them so that the very
earth seems to shake for miles around.
Are all who cheer Democratic speakers
and vote the Democratic ticket traitors ?
He is both fool and liar who says so.
The people want their old Democratic
liberties restored ; they have seen
enough of corruption and tyranny ; they
are not yet prepared for a military des
potism ; and they have resolved to no
longer submit to illegal arrests and mock
trials. This is the secret of the immense
and enthusiastic gatherings which turn
out to welcome Democratic speakers.

An iNnisriTARLE Fact.— It is univer
sally conceded that the Democratic party
must save the country, or all is lost. It
is the only party that has ever success
fully conducted a war, or concluded an
honorable peace. It has the confidence
of the people, and in its ranks are to be
found the wisest statesmen and purest
patriots living. For nearly three quar
ters of a century it adminittered the Gov
ernment satisfactorily and gloriously, and
it will da so again. During its long and
splendid career it never denied liberty of
speech or of the press, never persecuted
its opponents for difference of opinion,
never violated the laws, disregarded the
Constitution or interfered with the rights
of individuals. Hopefully the people are
turning to it and by scores swelling its
ranks. If they keep on changing as they
have been since the adjournment of our
State Convention, by the ti ne the elec
tion comes off there will not be enough
Abolition traitors left to form a corporal's
guard. Downey will get the largest ma
jority ever given' to any candidate in
California. Low acts prudently in refus
ing to resign the Collector of the I’ort of
San Francisco. He will be indignantly
repudiated by the people on the second
of uext month.
Cokkittios Find. —It is stated that
army contractors, quartermasters and
Custom House employees are freely bled
by Low, Collector of the Port of San
Francisco and Abolition candidate for
Governor, to swell the corruption fund—
a fund set apart to elect the Abolition
ticket. Speakers and newspapers, and
bummers of the Torn Shannon order, and
liars and villitiers of the Higby school,
and certificate makers of the Kibbo per
suasion, and toadies and tools of the Mc-
Crcllish character, have been plentifully
supplied from it. Complaints have been
made against old Gwin’s castoff boot
black of the Herald and his man Friday,
who does tho editorials, who arc con
stantly drawing on it and crying for
more. It is said they have got more
than their share already, and their greed
iness exceeds, if that were possible, their
presumption and duplicity. A row is
anticipated unless the corruption fund is
shared more equally among the syco
phants, knaves, parasites and vagabonds.
After the election, it is fair to infer, the
corruptionists will make some telling dis
closures, in which prominent Abolition
its will figure admirably.
■■ -<»>»»■ -■ ■ -
To W hat ake tiiev Loyal. —To what,
pertinently asks the Milwaukee News,
are the Abolitionists loyal ? To the Con
stitution? They have suspended it 1 To
tho Union ? They boldly proclaimed
that they arc not for the Union as it was,
but for “a Union as it ought to be!”
To the States ? They propose to blot out
State lines! To the Government? They
ignore tho laws of Congress, and spit
upon the decisions of the Supreme Court!
To the President? They propose to de
pose him if he does not obey them!
They arc loyal to the spoils, to the thieves
who have robbed the people, to the Chi
cago Platform and to the negroes ! This
is the extent of their loyalty.

the title of a paper—the first number of
which wo have received—established at
Virginia, Nevada Territory, by J. F.
Linthicum and E. O. F. Hasting, gentle
men well known in this State. As its
name indicates, it is thoroughly Demo
cratic. It is large, neatly printed, and
edited with marked ability—in this lat

K(>r«ti Better than Adopted
Editors Democrat : It is a fact that cannot
be disputed that many of the leaders of the
Republican party in this county think negroes
more intelligent and more trustworthy than
adopted citizens. A few days ago I stopped
at Wild Cat Bar and got into a political dis
cussion with a leading Republican named Ma
comber. In the course of the discussion be
stated very emphatically that, 44 take the ne
groes on an average and they were more in
telligent and more capable of administering
the affairs of our county and State than any
citizen, and that he would believe
(flea* >>is fair to presume
that be expressed the sentiments of the Re
publican partv—sentiments which they pru
dently conceal at the present time. No adopt
ed citizen, baring a particle of self-respect, can
support a party enlertaioing such insulting
sentiments. The Democratic party has ever
been the friend of adopted citizens and has
always battled for their rights, and it is their
duty to support that party. Be not ungrate
ful, friends. Be not deceived bv the Republi
cans claiming to be for the Union. Their
whole object is to free the negroes and enslave
the white men.

toned Democratic meeting at this place on Fri
day last. It was respectable in numbers, re
solved in purpose and enthusiastic iu spirit.
It was addressed by Messrs. Chapman, David
son and Fleming. ’ As you are aware this is
the strong hold of the Abolition party, and
they had their strikers on baud instructed to
disturb the meeting. The speakers fearlessly
presented their views with regard to the great
issues of the day. They preached the good
old Democratic doctrine, so obnoxious to the
Administration party, respect for the Constitu
tion, obedience to the laws and love for the
Uuion of our fathers. They denounced Aboli
tionism, sectionalism, Loyal Leagueisrtl, se
cessiooism, and all the dangerous isms of the
day, and their sentiments were heartily re- |
•ponded to by the Democracy, to the uiortili- ,
cation of the Abolitionists.
The Abolitionists iu this town are under the
control of und seem to belong to a petty coun
ty otlicial, who sold himself for position, and
who is now the w illing instrument of a man
he formerly denounced as the “chief of the
swindling bulkheuders.” lie and his follow
ers were politely invited to attend the meeting,
lie replied that “it is unnecessary; wefurnish
our people with reading matter and that's
enough." “We,” meaning the ofliee-holders,
“dou’t allow our followers to hear the truth.
We dictate to them and forbid them from at
tending Democratic meetings!” Did you ever
hear of such arrogance? How Americans can
tamely submit to such insolence, coming from
such a source, is something I cannot under
stand. It is degrading to the American char
Judging from what followed the leader and
his tools are worthy of each other. After the
meeting adjourned and the speaker* bad gone
to bed, some of these cowardly Abolition mis
creants stole tl.eir horses, part of their harness,
their clothing and a carpet bag w ith a tote be
longing to Davidson, tor a large amount -
These candidates for the Penitentiary, if de
tected, will he elected by a unanimous vote!
In the morning, when the rascality was dis- !
covered, the leader and his companions were
standing round, apparently exulting over their
outrageous conduct. Our Postmaster, Mr.
Moore, an honest and conscientious Republi
can, denounced the outrage in strong terms.
The vagabonds injured their party bv uctiug so
disgracefully. The news ot the outrage soon
spread over the country, and the following
night the Democrats had a rousing meeting at
Wild Cat liar, and men wh.'bad acted with
the Republican party declared their determi
nation to act hereafter with the Democracy.

El Dou.vdo, August *2, 1 H CC.
Eiutokk Driiock.vt ; Having just perused a
communication in the Daily New* of the fth
instant, 1 must confess that I was greatly
amused; for it comes out so pointedly and
states that “ five of the most respectable citi
zens of El Dorado” stand-ready to testify that
Col. Weller’s speech, as telegraphed to the
Alta, is a correct version of w hat he said on
the night he spoke at this place. It is my
opinion and the opinion of many others, that
if the writer of the article to which I refer,
bus made ati impartial selection from those of
bis ow n party and set them to one side to be
looktd upon as five ot the m"st respectable
citizens of our place, that be has not generally
taken in the community, but narrowly confined
himself to that glorious Loval League, the re
spectability of which has lately been thrown j
aside, through a w ar necessity* I suppose. |
In regard to the speech of Pol. Weller, were \
it necessary to refute a deliberate misrepresent j
tation which would be reiterated as soon as re- j
fated, I can bring ten times five of the most re- [
spectable citizens of El Dorado, who will tes- |
tify that it was incorrectly given to the Alta, j
The Reporter perverted his language and mis- j
sepresented his sentiments, and placed words I
in his mouth w hich he never uttered. Instead I
of justifying or defending mobs, be was par
ticularly severe on them. The motive of the
Reporter is well understood ; it was to impress :
the public mind unfavorably with regard to |
Col. Weller’s sentiments, thinking by this I
base method to gain for his party votes on the J
day of election. Hut all such bure-faced mis- !
representations will be exposed, and their au- :
tbors ami indorsers rebuked by the people on

Emtors Democrat : It is reporte d in pre
emi ts of our county, where Sain Eusmiuger
has a number of warm friends, that Mr. Rog
ers, in the event of his election, has promised
to make Sam Under Sheriff or give him a
Deputy ship. This report cornea from the
friends of Rogers, and although suspicious, I
am disposed to believe it, but 1 am uot willing
to rely upon reports. They are too often
groundless. What Sam’s friends want to
know and insist upon knowing is, whether he
has received defmito promises of this charac
ter from Mr. Rogers. Mr. R. must not trade
on spurious capital. If he is elected he will
owe his election to the friends of Ensminger,
the man who, scorning combinations and re
lying solely upon his own merits, led his com j
petitors in Convention ou the first ballot, and
would have been nominated ou the second had
he accepted propositions for a combination.

Centerville, August 12,1863.
Editors Democrat : The citiieps of Center- [
Tille were favored with spirit-stirring speeches
from the champions of Constitutional, Croon
loviDg Democracy, last evening. Mr. Taylor,
an ex-member of the Wisconsin Legislature,
led oft. His witticisms and anecdotes caused
roars of laughter from the numerous Demo
crats present, while the Abolition traitors wilted
under the scathing rebuke of the speaker, evi
dently conscious that every truth uttered was
an additional nail driven in the coffin ot their
party. .
Mr. Davidson, Democratic nominee for the
Assembly, followed, with a lucid and truly ar
gumentative speech of nearly one hour, in
which the \€iuug i 4
were loudly applauded.
The speech of U. C. Sloss, Esq., Democratic
candidate for District Attorney, though con
fined mostly to our State affairs, was an able
effort, the fruits of which will be made mani
fest by his triumphant election to the position
to which he aspires.
In conclusion, I would say to my fellow Dem
ocrats of El Dorado County, that the political
skies are bright aud growing brighter; und I
would urge every lover of bis country to adopt
the dying words of the lamented Lawrence —
“Don’t give up the ship” of State—for, rest
assured, there is no hope for a restoration of
peuce to our now bleediug Union, till we wipe
out, utterly wipe out, at the ballot-box, the
present traitorous Abolition party. Deinocruts,

El Dorado, August 13,1S63.
Editors Democrat: Are you aware that the
Abolitiouists have imported spies in nearly
every precinct of our county, to watch the pro
ceedings und rcjMiri the conversation of Demo
crats? Oue ut John Durness’ pimps, without
any visible means of support, is quartered in
our town. The duty of this pitiful pauper and
wandering vagabond apparently is to falsely
report speeches and certify to their correctness.
He is a serviceable t«*ol and serves his master
faithfully, und doubtless draws heavily on the
Custom House corruption fund for his expen
ses. A party must be sunk low iudeed that
employs spies aud tiuds them among its own
members, und nominates eaves-droppers for
high positions? Would it uot be well to ex
pose the character aud purposes of these mu
liguaut spies i ELDORADO.
