Friday Morning, July 24,
Che circulation, of the Daily Press is larger
than, that of any other daily in the city,
Γκα*»,—S6.00 a year if paid within three month$
from the date of subscription, or S7.0C at the end of
the year.
What Constitutes Political Iti ili· lliption?
A meeting was held ill Westboook on Wed
nesday la.-*t, to see if the town would raise
money to pay each drafted man *·ίΐΜ «s com
mutation inouey, or to pay Cor a substitute.
The result of the meeting was a vote, ίιι favor
of paying the $:iCK) to each drafted man, giving
him three chances—to take the money anil go
to the war, to procure a substitute, or to pay
the same to the government and titay at hume.
This is tne order in which the Argus arran
ges the uses to which the (300 may lie appro
priated, though in the vote actually passed,
the stay-at-home provision was made first,
foremost and most prominent. In announcing
the result of the meeting the Argus exclaims,
exultingly :
Thus it will be seen that the e<M>d old town of
Westbrook has redeemed herself, notwithstanding
the desperate elïurt «·!' Um nftUHMI to lo r
appear in a fiilse and niggardly light before the
people of the State.
It l»ecoincs interesting to know what, in the
estimation of the Argus, constitutes political
redemption at tho present time. Fortunately
we are not left without the means of informa
tion on this point, In the Advertiser's long
occupying nearly two columns, fifty per cent,
of which is made up of F.O. J. Smith'· speech,
and forty-nine and seven-eight lis per cent, in
glorification of the same speech—all prepared
editorially and placed under the editorial head, ;
P. O. J. S. himself being the editor—we learn
not only precisely what was done, and precise- ;
ly w hat vital action w as left undone, hut we
also learu what project the republicans had In
view calculated to make the town "appear in
a false and niggardly light before the people
of the state." Mr. Libbv of that town, who
took part in the meeting, is a Republican, and
the following extract from the Advertiser's
report will show the proposition which he sub
mitted and which he and his republican friends
and other truly loyal men were willing to
Mr. Libbv sustained the war and the gov
ernment. He would offer an amendment to
Mr. Smith's motion as follows :
To give three hundred dollar* to each man draft
ed under the confcriution act when he nr a jçood ami
sufficient substitute in hi* stead <> mustereatnto llie
atrricr "/ thr United Statee, and we hereby author
ire the Selectmen and Tresuurer of the town of West
brook to procure tire money by a loan not exceeding
six percent, on issue of town scrip to each soldier,
payable in one, two and three years from date, with
This is what the Argus calls '"mean and nig
gardly." It is lacking in one provision ; tlmt
which would leave the government without
soldiers ; w hich would force the government
Into dishonorable concessions to rebels because
of its inability to dictate its own terms, lint
the above proposition was voted down, and
a proposition was raised which may result in
leaving the Government in its needs without
a man from Westbrook to uphold its flag, to
defend its honor, to vindicate its authority, or
to punish its rebellious enemies ; ami this, and
thi9 alone, the Argus exultiugly styles the
redemption of the town from disgrace. A
prompt response to the demands of the Gov
ernment, therefore, is "mean and niggardly,"
while refusal 10 respond by furnishing inch, is
noble and praiseworthy, and exhibits a town
in the blaze of redeeming light!
A glance at tTie Advertiser's report will re
veal the animua of those who were most zeal
ous in ''redeeming" the town, and what views
they entertain of duty. We need not refer to ι
the"leading speech, made by Mr. Smith, for
Mr. S. takes occasion almost daily to ventilate ,
his views through the Advertiser, and is known
to occupy the extreme ground of Fernando !
Wood, James Brooks and Clement L. Vallan
dighain, and to be prostituting all his energies
to defeat the purposed of the Government and
to bring about peace by one of two methods;
either by acknowledging the independence of
the South, or by allowing her to dictate the
terms on which she will consent to rule over
the whole country.
Mr. 1'ayson of Westbrook was the Demo
cratic candidate for Representative last fall,
and therefore may be considered the repre
sentative man of that party in his town. Mr.
P. has been an out-spoken sympathiser with
the rebels, and has not failed to make that
sympathy known, lie did not fail to reveal it
at the town meeting ou Wednesday last. As
we find him reported in the Aevertlser he
said :
lie did't believe in the war from the start ami
didn't tune. Uli WOULDN'T VOTE Λ DOLLAR (lit
A CENT TO I'ARRY ON THIS WAR, unless it was
W liVIII "JUI ρΟΟΓ Π If II 11111 ni I 1ΙΓ I ' IU li 11 (II U l'1])OI3U
into which the course of the Administration hiLii
thrown them. When the question came upas to
whether the poor mm: Mum 111 have the money to give
hiin the same privilege» and advantage* un<ler our
government and lawn in times like these he would
go to the extent of his means to aid hint in his ju.-t
and equitable rights.
lie would suggest that the town issue town orders
of fluu apiece or more, payable In one. three, ttve,
eight and ten yearn, Ικ-ariug seven per cent, inter
est, and pay them out αλ ιικίκ y.
This speech of a representative democratic
tnan «hows what the Argus considers needful
to redeem a town from the disgrace which
Republicans would hring upon it. Tliev would
pay the soldier for going to war to sustain the
government; democracy, as defined by Mr. |
1'ayson, would pay not a dollar, not even a
cent to carry on the war; would only pay to
help the soldier out of the waror to keep him
out! This is political redemption. This is
the way for towns to redeem themselves.
This is democratic support of the country.
In short, it is disloyalty, the essence of reliel
lion, the quintessence of treason ; and work it
over, sugar-coat it, and talk about it as you
will, it come* to this and nothing short of
this. This is the drift, of democracy as now
defined; as represented by the Copperhead
organization. It aims to break down the gov
ernment if it cannot control it ; to throw it |
into the hands of Jeff Davis if it can in no !
other way wrest it from the hands of Abraham
Lincolu. Crod only knows from what the vic
tory at Gettysburg has saved us. No intelli- !
gent man can well doubt that the invasion of
Pennsylvania by Lee, the raid of Morgan in
to Indiana, the mission of Stephens towards
Washington, the riot in New York, and the
generally planned riots all over the country at
the same moment of time, were parts of one
general programme, or that it was designed,
through these movement just at the time the
conscription law was to be made operative, to
overthrow the government and allow Lee's
victorious legions—prepared to succor and
sustain the Copperhead opposition to the gov- ί
eminent—to make an easy conquest of Wash
ington, Philadelphia and New York, and thus
place the country at the mercy of Davis and
his confederates in treason. Say you, reader,
that this is a wild and visional y view of things !
We tell you that facts are daily coining to
light which U.'ud to force this conviction upon
the minil, and to sliow that, had Lee succeed
ed in conquering Meade at Gettysburg, iu
stead of tlie peace and quietness now prevail
ing at the North, we might l>e involved in a
general rebellion and insurrection throughout
the length and breadth of the free States.
The Wood ses and Biookses of New York,
the Vallaudighams, l'ughs and Coxes of Ohio, ι
the Smiths, l'arrises, Uudsons and Boyntons of
Maine, and similar desperate men throughout
the North, were doubtless prepared to join
hands with the minions of Jell' Davis, and to
force upon the nation dishonorable terms of
peace which no arguments and sacrillces cau
induce loyal men to accept. As we have inti
mated, Heaven only knows from what horrors
Meade's successes saved us. In our judgment,
in view of all the facts, and all the indications
of the times, the victory at Gettysburg was
fraught with more important consequences
than any triumph that as yet has crowned our
victorious arms.
One word in relation to the cheat practiced
upon the Westbrook conscripts and we are
done. As the vote stands, the Treasurer is to
my the drafted men in town scrip, bearing
^■euii-aiinual interest. How is the conscript
lopay his commutation with this'.· Govern
ment will not lake it. The banks will not
touch a dollar of it. Eveil K. O. J.S. himself,
with all his wealth, will never be found willing
to cash any considerable amount of it, and
yet it is the only thing furnished the poor con
script with which b> procure exemption. It
is a cheat, a swindle upon the poor mail, so far
as it proposes to enable him to pay his exemp
tion lee, and to remain at home withouf fur
nishing a substitute. It is worthless scrip,
with no legal value, and will never be made
valid by any act of the Legislature, nor could,
tiie act of tin· Legislature render it valid, lor
Uieargumeutsofthe full bench in a decision al
ready given, arc sulliciout to show that they
would decide any action of the Législature,
designed to legalize the raisiug of commuta
tion money, contrary to the spirit of the Con
stitution, ami therefore void.

Λ letter from a responsible party iu the
town of iMlnot gives the particular* of a very
singular circumstance, by which a conscripted
Copperhead has become relieved of his obli
gations to toe the mark at the word of com
mand. In that town there is a man whose
name we have, but which we do not think it
worth while to disclose, who has been one of
the most active Copperheads iu the vicinity ;
a mail who denounces Lincoln's abolition war,
denouuees the "niggers," cherishes a profound
rwspect for "our Southern brethren," regards
Vallaudigbam its a martyr, thinks probably
that the New York roughs have been lighting
for tliuir liberty, considers the conscription
law an odious statute, and gives all the other
usual evidences of being "sound on the goose"
as that ancient bird is now defined by the
Copperhead oru thologists. Well, this gen
tleman was one of the lucky men who drew
a prize in the conscription lottery, recently
drawn at Lcwiston.
About the time he was drafted—whether
before or after the news of Ills "good luck-'
we do not know—he was heard to say, with
a sort of iuterroitative accent, that he sup
posed if a man should lose one of his toes it
would disqualify liiin for the service, and the
draft would be inoperative in his case, lie al
so said he supposed if /«' should happen to
lose such an appendage to his |>edais that he
would be accused of inaliniug himself on
purpose to eseape the draft.
Singular as the coincidence may seem, the
next day—the result of the draft I icing then
known—the gentleman referred to did lose
one of his big toes, and the story is that, while
engaged with his brother in hewing a stick ot
timber, the brother's broad-ax llew from his
hands and wickedly chopped off the mendier
aforesaid, but investigation reveals no injury
either to the bout or the Ktuckiwj iu which the
maimed foot was encased ! The neighbors re
gard it as one of the most wonderful and uo
ioe-rious ax-idents that lias ever come to their
Another singular—rather plural — fact is
stated; like the itch, the measles and the
mumps, this kind of ax-identul disqualification
to respond to the military demands of the
government seems to have run through the
family of which the gentleman referred to is a
a member, for, as we have the story, the very
brother whose ax has proved to be so frater
nal, only last fall, when there were apprehen
sions of a draft, lost one of hit toes very sud
denly and singularly, and by the same kind of
amputating Instrument !

sympathy between the late riot there, ami the
rebellion. He says he frequently heard from
the rioters expressions of hope for the success !
of the rebels; he saw a well known and infiu- j

the rioters, encouraging them in consultation
with their ringleaders, and welcomed by them
wherever he went. Wednesday afternoon,
when the "th regiment dispersed a mob that j

of soldiers moved otr, called out "three cheers
for Jeff Davis." The cheers were given, num

so. The re*ult ha* been a perfect cure. I followed,
1 need not say. stnctly tin· directions laid dowu in

look back to my escape as almost miraculo 4. None

Mi; l>. Howard—Dear Sir :—\ ou wish to know
what iuioriuatiou I posse»* in relation to the efficacy
of your "t'AlCKS axd Cankki Syrlp". Several
Tears since my wife, being confined, was severely
troubled with what is usually called "Nursing .>or«
Mouth." and what the phvsiciati* call · milk huib "
Both legs were badly swollen, and were in a dread
ful state. Everything that could be thought of «as
resorted to without any benettt. lier physicians
pronounced her recovery venr doubtful, if not im
possible. At this time, hearing of your Syrcp, and
It beiug highly recommended, she "concluded, as a
la*t resort, to*give it a trial, which she did with the
most beneficial* results .Shortly after she com
menced taking it. her health began to improve, and
the use of a few bottles com pi ci eig cured fur. Aud
although she has be< μ twice confined since, she has
been perfectly free from the trouble above named.
1 have also *een its effects m a great many ca*e* out
"> m ν family, which have beeu of the most satisfket
tory character. I have procured hundred* of bot
tles for my friend» and neighbors, and a* far a- my
knowledge extends, it has given general »at is taction,
I take great ph-asure in recommending it to the oub
lie a* an invaluable reuiedt tor tlie diseases for which
ills recommended.

her nigh unto death.
Some time since. being confined, «he was greatly

and leaving her in a very bad and almo»t hopelr··

health is now good, a condition to which she ha·
been a stranger for many year-. 1 cannot command
