1 my motto.
If I don't hate a mean man, I don't
know my own sentiments. Since I was
a boy it was always a soured of pleasure
to me to kick a' mean man morally, or
physically, when the good Lord sent me
a favorable opportunity, I've seen many
a mean man in my day. I have seen a
man so'inesn that he abused his Wife un
til 'she got a divorce from-him, and then
tried to get her to be his mistress. But
in my humble opinion I've been a sol
dier, Sir, and faced my country's foes un
der Gre there's no style of living man
meaner than the fellow who tries to make
dirty money by dealing in substitutes.
I read the papers pretty carefully, and
don't skip the advertisements. I have
got a great deal of good out of advertise
ments in my time. Last week I read of
a substitute broker named Miggs, in the
city. Plenty of others there were like
him, to be sure.; but my way of dealing
with the swindlers is to pick out, on of
the swindlers and give him a handling.
I picked qnt Miggs, and went to town to
see what might be the prospect for hand
ling him.
The first man I met was Jo Smith, and
I told him I had got a little job to do,
and wanted his help. Jo knows me.
"All right, what is it ?" says he.
"Do you know a chap named Miggs?','
" Substitute swindler V
"Yes. O.E. Miggs."
" Guess I do 1 He's been trying to
get me to sell myself to him cheap."
" For a sub ?"
" Yon don', say ! -Come, this .is jast
the talk ! Find me Miggs, will yoa ?
I'm a substitute."
"Pooh 1 Yon ain't going to let any
of these dirty sharks gobble yon up and
make a hundred dollars out of yon. Are
you, John ?"
" He won't make more than that out
of me, anyhow. All that I ask of yon
is to set him on. Tell him to get me
drnnk, and I am his man. I will be."
"Oh. I see! John, you're a good egg.
Here's my hand."
He went straight off, and I waited on
the corner for him. Pretty soon he came
back wjth Miggs a lean chap with 6ore
eyes and a treble voice. He was dressed
in a shiny broadcloth suit, and wore a
bine vobt with rfifnlatinn bnttons. Our
tuitions ! I conld hav knocked him
duwn for tht.
" Mr. MiggK." Faid Jo, " let me intro
duce yon to my friend John Waggoner,
from tbo conntrv. I wsnt yon to show
him the claphant, Miggs. Mr. Miggs
knows the city like a book, John. He'll
take care of yon. Come 'round to my
hon.e to morrow, and I'll be more at leis
ure than I am to-day." Jo went off, and
left Mipgs and I standing on the corner.
He looked at me as mdeh as to say,
" You're my game, conntry 1" Oh, am
I ? thought I ; bnt I remained peaceable.
"Smith's a good fellow, ain't he?"
piped Miggs.
" Yes," said I, " he's well enough ;
bnt he's too darned particular for me.
He won't never drink with a fellar, and if
it's anything I do like it ain't tea ha, ha!"
" He, he, he, he," sqnaked the sore
eved substitute, "that's a good one.
Eh ! but, I say let's have something."
Broker had got his cue at once. He
was going to get me drnnk as fast as pos
sible. No doubt his time was prscions.
- We drank. Broker took a very slight
nip, I noticed. I let him do it, that time.
I warmed np with my liquor wonder
fully quick, yon nnderstand, and as we
went right off into another saloon, and
drank, I took Miggs glass, when he had
dribbled a little whiskey into it. and said 1:
" Look'ero ! That ain't the way yoa
drink with yonr friends, is it, Miggs, old
ehan? Here, let me fill her np for yon."
And 1 rilled her np, ana watcueu -uiggB
drink her, too.
" What do yon think about the war,
Mr. Waggoner ?"- said Miggs, after that.
He was for getting on to business.
" War is a big thing on ice," said I,
" a very big thing. Ooma up and take
We took something.' I poured out for
Miggs, who began to.ey'e me anxiously:
to encourage him, I said :,.,. - ,
"Miggs, old boy hie. 1 I believe I
can liek DeffJavis or any other, man ; I
believe I could."
Of course yoa could." eaid Miggs,
who began to feel perceptibly better. "I
have a good notion to enlist,. myself.".
"" Bully for yoa,, come np and drink'

In the Whig National Convention
which met in 1840, General William
Henry Harrison, a citizen of a free State,
was nominnted for the Presidency, with
the understanding that John Tvler, of
Virginia, should be the nomineo for Yico
President. Both candidates wsre elected,
and General Harrison, dying within one
short month after his inauguration, left
the Presidency in the hands of a most
despicable traitor, who only had the mer
it of derotion to the interosts of his own
family first, and slavery second, to re
commend him. There was always"' a
mystery abont the sadden taking off of
"old Tippecanoe," and there were not
wanting those who believed he had been
the victim of foul play, and who refused
to believe that an old soldier and politi
cian could be bored to death by politicians
(as was asserted) in the short space of
one month.
General Taylor was the next Whig
President, and althongh he was a South
ern man, he refnsed to lend himself to the
scheme of taking the South out of the
Union in the event of the admission of j
California with slavery prohibited in her
Constitution. It is a matter of history
that when the old hero was approached
npon tha subject, he declared that if th
treasonable experiment was tried he would
himself head an army to enforce obedi
ence to tha Federal laws. "Old Roogh
and Ready".did not long survive this
threat,, and after a sickness of a few days,
he died, leaving as his successor a North
ern man' who was pledged to the support
of the Fugitive Slave law.. General
Taylor's death was attributed to dysen-
.. .- - li , i . .
tery inancea oy eating raw uisc&uerriea,
a fruit that is, frequently eaten as a ramea
dy for the'disease named. At all events
General Taylor died; and the conntry got
Fillmore and the Fugitive Slave law.
-Gen. Pierce, of New Hampshire, and
W. R. King, of Alabama, came next in
order after Taylor and. Filmore. Mr.
King died of consumption one month af
ter the inauguration of his colleague, and
beforele had been enabled to assume thej
duties of. the Vice Presidency, leaving
Poor,Pierce.in the hands of, his. .Secre
tary of War, Mr. Jefferson Davis. How
well the renegade New'Eoglander served
bis Southern keepers, Kaasas and Ne
braska will bear testimony. He was too
valuable a President for the Sooth to lose,
so he escaped being bored to death by
office-seekers", or being killed by .dysen
tjrv nrodnced bv eating blackberries.
James Buchanan and.John 0. Breck-
enridge followed in regular succession,
and ".Old Back" came very near oejug
one bf the vietims of the wholesale poison
ing at the National Hotel at Wasnington.j
Sir. ilachanan was an inmate 01 auo;i
tional Hotel at'thetiroeof.the'.'ratsoup"
affair; bnt by "hook or . by crook" he
escaped the honors of martyrdom. Had
he 'perished along, with 'numerous North
ern; victims, John C: Breckinridge would
Warn been President of the United States
for four years, and the sort of aJPresMent
he wonld have made, the history of the
nxutr. few vears abundantly demonstrates
We do not charge the South with intend
ing to poison Mr. Uochanan. at the na
tional'Hotel; but 'it i?al least extraordin
ary that of the ma'ny persons who' were
affected by the poison there.' were"; no
Sontherneri, although there were numer
ous natives of Dixie who were gneets in
the house at the time.
-Mr. Lincoln was the .successor of Mr.
Buchanan in ihe Presidsntal chair, and
the perils he escaped sn his road , to
Washington, before vhk inauguration,
are matters 'of notoriety- r
It may m' urged, in smswer- to these
implied charges of fonl.Cpiay which we
have heard made against. Southern poli
tical wire workers, and which "we .have
repeated, that they are not-assassins, and
that tbey are not capable of snob vile
treacherA. This fine sentiment might
have had weight four yearsago; but now
it is light as a feather in the scale of ar
gument. The Southerners have been
guilty of worse crimes than are Impnted
to them by those who believe that Har
rison and Taylor were their victims, and
that good fortune alone saved Bnchanan
and Lincoln from mattyrdom. The orig
inal treason of Davis, Floyd and Breck
inridge, was a far greater crime; and ev
ery devastated town, every Union victim
of a secession gallows, o very slaughtered
garrison of defenceless prisoners, every
merchantman trapped and burned, and
every starved tenant of Libby or Belle
Isle, is so mnch heaped npon the great
original wrong. It may be fairly argued
that men guilty of these great crimes may
be held capable of the lesser offences that
are hinted at.
Now for the application. It is a mat
ter of notoriety that undisguised sympa
thizers with Southern secession and re
bellion, if not agents of Southern seces
sionists, were' prominent acton in the
Chicago Convention. Tbey virtually
sacrificed their "peace on any terms"
principles, when they consented to ran
an avowed war candidate for the Presi
dency. Bnt they took care to secure a
rabid peace man, and a most inveterate
Copperhead as the candidate for the Vice
Presidency, with the hope that with a
non-comraiuai piauorm, toe war princi
ple and the snpposed personal popular
ity of , the one candidate, would secure the
success .of the entire ticket. If. by. any
mischance this fine plan should be fonnd
to work successfully, it would at least be
a remarkable coincidence if General Mc
Clellan. should be prematurely bored to
death by office-seekers, take an overdose
of rat, soup by accident, or conveniently
die.of dysentery induced' by eating raw
blackherriss. In that, event the road to
peace would be simple and easy for the
South, as Mr. Pendleton would not be
the man to throw any untoward-obstacles
in the way, even though peace meant the
destruction of onr nationality, and the
possible subjugation of the North to
Southern traitors. We give the hint for
what, it is worth. It is at least worth
thinking about, -between now and No
vember, accident might work the same
results as design, and General McCIellan
does not enjoy any immunity from the
chances of life and death. Evening Buh
The Hero of Antletan.
1 Copperhead papers refer to McCIellan
by the above title a-matter of ignorance
on their part. The real hero of Antietam
was fighting Joe Hooker, who, if ha had
been sustained by McCIellan, would baVe
won the battle, and driven Lee's army
into the Potomac. Little had McClellsn
to do with the fighting on that memora
ble day, and all that little was disastrous-
to onr arms.
The battle was opened by Hooker on
tbo afternoon of the day before, when that
gallant General crossed the Antietam with
his end Mansfield's corps, flanked the
rebel position, and pressed close up to
their lines as darkness came on. General
Hooker that night sent word to McCIel
lan that the battle would begin at "day
light the next morning, and that Sum
ner's corps, which was to support him,
must.be on the ground at sunrise. Mc
CIellan retnrn?d answer .that Sumner
should be there at the time. Now mark!
Snmner was not even ordered to march
till seven o'cteck next morning, and did
not reach, the field nntil nine o'clock.
when the battle had been going on for
fonr hours,. and when Hooker, tbnee ear
rviner the enemy's position in his front,
had. been thrice rolled back by reinforce
ments which tbe rebels.thrice.sent against
him. Had bnt Sumner ,been. seni as
Hooker prayed and McCIellan promised.
the left of Lee's army' wonld have been'
routed ere nine o'clock, and the battle
won. But McCIellan held Snmner back
till Hookers gallant, corps, borne down
by" weight of numbers, had, for, ihe third
time been driven back, and Hooker, him
self lay stretched on the' field by. a wound.
Whether McCIellan;, did or did not
mean that Hooker should win the battle,
we .care not to fay;' but this we say, that
if he had meant to prevent him he could
not have acted otherwise than as be did.
Coupling his inexplicable delay in order
ing Sumner forward, with the equally in
explicable refdsal to attack Lee the fol
lowing morning, when be was urged to
do so by both Bnmner.and iiuraside, we
may well supppe that Major Key was
informed of McCIellan's purposes when
he said "itwas not the game" to destroy
or to baaly defeat ;Lee's army: That he
might then have' annihilated the rebel
forces. 'and that he did not, U the world
now knows. Let ns have done, then,
with tbe mockery of calling General Mc
CIellan the Hero of Antietam. Keep
that honorable name for him to whom it
belongs gallant Joe. Hooker I

Advice to General McClellaa The
Union Square Itleeunff.
George Francis Train addressee the
following epistle to General McCIellan :
Clifton House, Niaoira Falls,
September 19, 1864. f
To General George B. McCIellan, the
War Candidate of the Peaca Platform:
Casar bad his Brntns, Charles the
First his Cromwell, and George, if yoa
beep on as yon have begnn, in Novem
ber yon won't have anybody. Last San
day I stated that yon wonld lose every
State but one. After witnessing yonr
Chinese performance Saturday night, I
am confident yon will lo9e New Jersey.
Two more such shows, and the Empire
City will give fifteen thousand against
yon. When Pennsylvania and Indiana
vote you down among tbe dead men, yon
will withdraw. Some minds must go
through a surgical' operation before yon
can set an idea into their heads. Maine
says, if yoa could not take Richmond
with Washington as a base, yoa will find
it impossible to take Washington with
Richmond as a base.
Yonr " pruning hooks" are changed
into " hooking prunes." Seymour, the
peace candidate, is nominated on a war
platform. McCIellan, the war candidate,
is nominated on a peace platform. In
November yoa will see the difference ber
tween fac simile and a nek family. Ho
ratio sold Richmond, and Richmond will
sell Horatio. The stage wagon becomes
a wagon-on tbe stage. " Uar are seben
Richmonds in de field," said the negro
aid-de-camp in Richard the- Third,
" How many ?" " Seben." " Put np
de bars, don't let any more in dar." The
peace bolters are all back again. 'Tis
the first time that ever rats refused to
leave a sinking ship. Virtue meeteth
with its reward. " Yoa can't bring ns
back," said Wood, Mullaly and McMas
ters, "unless yoa are stronger than we
are, and we know yon are."
There are some few peace men who
say that as principle has been sacrificed
by the Democracy for power, why not
join the party (as it is only a question of
power j tbat holds tbe bayonets, instead
of -those wbo don 1 7 .besides, as yoa
bolt, tbe platform, yoa are only a stump
candidate for tbe White House.
The whipper-in is a power in England.
Somebody is playing double, or H. G.
would not quote McCIellan through the
dead Donglas. '
"Politlca ara getting clear a. mad.
Whan war me cbeer Famandy Wad."
It only costs two thousand dollars, for
a McCIellan meeting.. Young Ketchnm
said so. Pshaw ! . That show 'Saturday
night cost ten times tbat amount. Twen
ty thousand dollars! One hundred thou
sand dinners for onr starving priionars.at

is hnman to forgive our friends is divine.
Are yon sure that when yonr commit

You know it it dangerous to stand on tie

About fifty men compose that celebrated
march. By passing and repassing behind
the scenes it looks as if there were fifteen
hundred. Twenty-two wards move np
each street and then move down another.
There must have been four hundred and
fifty thousand people in the square. The
Herald says so. liecanie tbo Herald is
going to Congress. McKeon says :

When Sir Charles Napier entered

The Constitntion prohibits both candi

The square was full of patriots. They
love yon, General. No speaker on tbat
platform wonld accept an office or a con
tract. They surround yon ont of pare

never remind yoa of services rendered.

"Query? Will wooden speeches, wood

wooden guns, with wooden cocks, bring

The whole show wa3 manufactured for
effect outside of New York. No enthusi
asm, no heart, no faith. You could as
well have lighted a wet squib. Chicago
spit on the end of the match, and the
brimstone declines to ignite. Loud cheers
for Little Mac. I wish somebody was
brave -enough to cheer for Great Mac.
The cirens show paraded the whole length
of Broadway, and, as I said coming from
Chicago after the nomination :
"Hat a dram was heard, nor a single nete,
A. yoorcorpie down Broadway wa. harried;
Not a patriot aent ap a aingle shont
O'er the gran when McClellaa was barled."
