Our Kastem dispatches to-day will be
found not only voluminous, but interest- ,
sng. important and satisfactory. The
length of the dispatch and the hour at ;
which it was received forbids any review '
of it. Every Union man can read it j
?? from A to Izzard," with perfect satis- 1
faction. It will be seen that Belmont j
cither telegraphed a lie to Weller or that j
Old AlcatTLZ told a lie on his hook. We >
don't believe it hurt either of them much. |
WHAT DO YOTT think of he? |
Our San Francisco telegraphic corres- j
pondent sends us whatever rumors of an !
important nature are current at the Bay I
city at the hour when it becomes neces- j
sary for him to forward his dispatch. He j
is a young man of brilliant talents, and |
an ornament to the society in which he
moves, but he is not endowed with super- ?
natural powers, and is of course unable to !
know intuitively the truth or falsity of the ,
current rumors. He therefore semis them ]
for what they are worth. In his dispatch j
of yesterday he announced a current re- .
port that Auguste Belmont had telegraphed ,
to Alcatraz Weller, that Pennsylvania had t
gone Democratic, soldiers vote and all. '
This was rather stunning, il* true. In j
fact, wc hard'y liked to publish the dis- j
rnal tale ; but we had it to do ? and wc !
did it. Great was the glee of the Copper
heads thereat, and loudly did they swell !
their gentle hiss into the melodious roar of
the Washoe canary. We assumed Cop
perhead tactics for the nonce, and refused
to believe the " lying telegraph." The
authority was bad all around. In the >
first place, the oath of allegiance which C.
L. Weller took in order to get him out of
Alcatraz, choked him so damnably that
he has not been able to speak the truth
since. Il was he, who told about receiv- j
ing the dispatch. Secondly, the dispatch i
was to have been received from Auguste 1
Belmont. The history of this eminent
banker, agent of Messrs. Rothschild, is 1
tolerably well known to American poli- j
ticians, and reflects more honor on his
financial skill than his political honesty.
He will be well remembered in the char
acter of one of Jimmy Buchanan's foreign
Ministers in particular, and as a time-long
pimp of the Democratic party generally.
He U a representative of the British bank
ing interests, the deadly hostility of which
to our national cause, is too well known to
need comment. Beebe, in Virginia, was an
other one of Buck's boys but it is not fair to
quote him as a sample. We deemed it pos
sible that such a dispatch had been sent and
received, but as to its truth, we question
ed it. It was too contradictory to former
dispatches. Nevertheless we felt a little
sick, for the biggest liar in the world may
tell the truth sometimes. We felt better
this morning. The dispatch to the morn
ing papers tells a different tale. Instead
of the horrible lie that " Pennsylvania
had gone democratic, soldier's vote and
all," the fact is that "Pennsylvania has
gone Union without the soldiers vote !"
what do you think of Ae f
P. S. ? Our own dispatch received at a
late hour confirms the report in the morn
ing papers, fixing the fact down to a sin
gle vote.

There is but one jiossiblc pretense by
which the accursed traitors who nightly
harangue the Kroom Kaqgers could evade
the direct charge of and prompt arrest for '
, trk.vson . That is the pretense that they j
are struggling for " Peace upon the basis j
of a Restored Union." It is a lie, a blac*. ;
and damnable lie ; a lie that would choke
and scorch the throat of any but a hellish ,
traitor whose mouth had been scared ? ith ,
the oath of allegiance until it had become j
case-hardened. It "?*?? their present
purposes, however, one of which is to lull ,
to sleep and into their arms a few men i
who ?? sucked Democratic milk and were ;
rocked in a Democratic cradle and the
other is to keep themselves from being
hung. If they dared "for one night
onlv " to stand up in the glare of their
hontires, and tell the assembled multitude ;
their true sentiments and advocate openly j
the cause of that rebellion, for they hope
and tear by day and blasphemously pray :
to the devil at night, they .would find that
" free speech " and their necks woujd be
at the end of the rope before sunrise.
Put no ! Caution is the characteristic of
the Copperhead, false-pretense his policy,
petjury his notion of an oath, and treason
his patriotism. The Secessionist, wiser in
his generation than the northern dough
face, has reduced him to servitude, put his
foot upon his neck, and has learned his
slave to sing and swear the songs and
oaths that should work his owner's will
and destroy the Nation. Therefore it is
that nightly we sec upon the traitors'
rostrum, men of northern birth, "whose |
cheeks long ago forgot to blush, standing j
side by side with men whose treason is a !
fact, undeniable antl undented. And yet,
to a horde of fools, (whose ears, long ago
stunned with the word '? Democracy," can
hear no other sound,) they tell the foul
lie that they, the leaders of the Copper
head gang, are for " peace 011 the basis of
n restored l*nion." They know, none
better, that there never was yet devised a
means or measure, tending towards
" peace," that the government of the re
bellion would have listened to for a mo
ment. They never will. That was not
what they commenced the war for. They
already had '? peace on the basis of the
Union " and they didn't like it. They
wanted "independence," and they went
to war about it three years ago and are
fighting still. Feebly, to be sure; with ex
hausted resources, and thinned ranks, and
with an amount of suffering that the north
knows nothing of. But they are fighting
still ; and they will continue to fight so
long as their resources permit the main
taining of an army in the field. They are
fighting for disruption of the Union, and
their own independence, and they are
bound to have it if they can get it. And
yet these Copperheads tell the people that j
the "Democratic" party are tor ?' l'eace j
on the basis of a restored Union !" j
Whether impudence or ignorance most !
predominates in the mind of a man who
talks such abominable balderdash, is a
question that it would take a jury of
Chinamen to decide. To show the fallacy
of such pretenses, we will give a little
modern Southern talk on the subject,
which is somewhat authorative :
HMjCOXBK positively asserted that the
South did not want peace, and would not lis
ten to the faintest intimation of peace, except
ait terms recognizing their absolute independ- [
ence and sovereignty , icith all the territory they
originally claimed. He said the rebels could
and would fight twenty years longer before
accepting any other or less terms than these.
He averred "the Southern people were not
fighting for Slavery, and cared nothing about
it ; that they would relinquish it in a moment
if so doing would advance their cause ; that
what they" were fighting for was indepetulence
ami separate sovereignty, pure and simple,
and this they would have, or else they must
be exterminated.
Our friend questioned him closely and re
peatedly if there was not some possible way
to brine about a peace ; and he was always
answered that there could be no peace upon
the basis of any reconstruction of the Union
? that was altogether out of the question.
Whatever might be said or had been said for
political ctfect, the Southern States would
never again unite with Northern States on any
terms. The rebels had announced, in the be
ginning, that the separation was final, and
they meant precisely what they said, and
would either die or carry this point.
Mr. Holcombe was at great pains to create
the distinct impression that slavery was not
the cause or object of the war, but only the
convenient pretext for getting up a revolt ;
that the real cause and object was independ
ence and a separate nationality, and nothing
else ; and that no peace, or truce, or compro
mise was possible that did not grant the rebels
independence and a separate sovereignty;
and that, whatever political management
could do in the North to embarrass the Gov
ernment was fostered and encouraged by the I
rebel leaders because it aided them more or |
less in obtaining their ultimate object, sepa- i
ration and independence.
Holcombe is one of that swect-scented
set of Commissioners who were recently
bobbins: around Niagara Falls, trying to
get a chance to go to Washington and
give Uncle Abe some of their insolence.
Whether or not they had commissions from
Jeff. Davis, one thing is certain, and that
is that they were a fair representation of
rebel sentiment. '? Peace on the basis of
a restored Union" ? we think we heard
you say.
Read the Papers. ? We cannot too
strongly impress upon Union men the ne
cessity of distributing the papers freely
among the people. Hundreds of our fel
low-citizens think themselves unable to
spare even the half dollar per week which
is the price of a daily paper. To those
who can and do take one or more, we
would say, if you cannot afford to pay for
more for distribution, pass your own
around after you have done reading it.
Truth cannot win this fight for the Cop
perheads, and they are lying mighty
strong ? and if they can't lie, the devil's
trade has gone in. Yesterday one of the
Copperhead drivers in Virginia stated
that Pennsylvania had gone Democratic
by 20,000 majority, and gave the Gold
Hill News as his authority. Simply
denouncing that hoary headed old traitor
as a wilful liar does'nt mend the matter.
Such lies have their effect. Let the peo
ple read for themselves.
The Silver City Distceba>-ce. ?
Those of our readers who may have been
astonished that, in so quiet a city as Silver,
a band of Secession orators were not lis
tened to with perfect silence and equa
nimity, are directed to a brief abstract
from the history of that town, which ap
pears in our columns to-day over the sig
nature of ?? Union." The authority is
strictly reliable.
Irish Union Club. ? A meeting of loyal
Irishmen will be held at the Union Club
Haadquanen, in Gold Hill, this evening,
to form a Union Club. Judge Broman,
and some others, will address the meeting.
Among the dispatches to yesterday's
Sacramento Union we find the following,
dated New York, October 16th. It shows
what a wide and unfortunate difference of
opinion there exists between tho Northern
Copperheads and their " misguided South
ern brethren," upon the subject of " I'eace
upon the basis of a restored Union
A letter purporting to have been writtcu by
the rebel vice-President, Stephens, in reply
to a letter from several of his fellow citizens,
is published. He savs that no person more
ardently desires the end of the war than he
does, but it is not in his power uor in theirs
to bring this-about. He says the recognition
of the sovereignty of the States is the only
solution of tho trouble. The idea of main
taining the old Union, or any Union, by force,
is preposterous. The subjugation of the
South by the North would involve the destruc
tion of the Constitution and the overthrow of
their liberties as well as ours. Any peace
growing out of a Union of States, established
by force, would be as ruinous to them as to
us. The action of the Chicago Convention,
as far as its platform of principles goes, pre
sents a ray of light which, under Providence,
may prove the dawn of day to this long, cheer
less night. To a Conventiou of States for
the adjustment 01 our difficulties I have no
The ringleaders of the Copperheads,
who pull the wires and nightly harangue
the people about "Peace," are not of the
same ignorant aud illiterate class as the
bulk of their misguided followers. They
read the papers ; they keep the run of po
litical affairs, both Xorth and South (es
pecially South), and thev know, full well,
that every time they tell the people that
" the Democratic party is for peace and a
restored Union." they tell a foul and trai
torous lie !
The members of the (iold Hill Union
Club had a most glorious meeting at their
Headquarters last night. It was one of
the largest meetings the Club has yet
held. Vice President Colbath occupied
the chair, and II. C. Whitman, of Virginia,
having been invited by the Club, was in
troduced to the audience, and was greeted
with tumultuous applause. For the space
of one and a half hours, Mr. Whitman
riveted the attention of his large audience
by one of the best political speeches ever
made on the eastern slope of the Sierras.
It was indeed a master production, and
his hearers showed their appreciation of it
by frequent, loud and heart-felt applause.
After Mr. Whitman had concluded, Mar
cus D. Larrowe, of Lander county, was
called out, who spoke for perhaps fifteen
minutes, in a very eloquent and forcible
manner. He represented the Union pros
pects of Lander to be very encouraging ;
and in fact expressed his own solemn and
candid opinion that Lander county would
certainly roll up a majority of from three
to six hundred for the Union Ticket on
the Sth of November. The remarks of
Mr. I.arrowe were well received. The
Club then gave three rousing cheers for
Lincoln and Johnson ; and three more for
the speakers of the evening, and then ad
journed until Friday evening.
Union- Voters in (?oi.t> Hii.l. ? The |
Union Clubs of Gold Hill already roll up |
a list of eight hundred active members. As
there are not really more than about
eleven hundred Uyal voters in the precinct,
it would indicate that there is a small
Union majority here. Wo know of quite
a number of Union men who have not yet
joiued the Club.
C'oiiMlilutioiaal Drmcrrtiry.
The following excellent article, which we
find in the Sacramento liee, we commend to
the carcful perusal of all " Constitutional
Democrats." Let Union men cut it out and
paste it in their hats ; and when they hear
some ignoramus who thinks that Copper
headism is Democracy, prating about " ge
lorious Constitution," just back him up in a
corner, and read this to him till he sweats
virdigris :
How often do we hear self-styled constitu
tional Democrats prating about the Constitu
tion, of the necessity of living up to its re
quirements, while in the same breath they
contend for the doctrine of States' Rights as
taught by the Calhoun school of politicians
and incorporated into the Democratic creed at
the Cincinnati Convention. That doctrine
holds that a State may at will nullify a law of
Congress and secede from the U nion. The
doctrine is itself in direct violation of the
positive language of that Constitution to
which " Constitutional Democrats " pretend
to be so devoted, and it is to uphold that doc
trine that the rebels commenced the war and
arc to-day in arms.
Section 2 of Article VI of the Constitution
of the United States reads :
"This Constitution, unci tho laws of the lTaited
States which shall bo made iu pursuance thereof
* ? shall be the supreme law of the land : and
the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby,
anything in the Constitution or laws of any State
to tho contrary notwithstanding."
The article creating tho Supreme Court
" rnejnaicmi jwwor nuiui vwitruu u? an ciuvn iu
law and equity arising under thin Constitution,
the law* of the United State*," etc.. and to " con
troversies between two or more States."
It requires but little sense to understand
that the cardinal principle in the faith of the
self-styled Constitutional Democracy is de
termined opposition to the plainly expressed
provisions of that instrument, of which Cop
perhead orators so glibly prate. Modern
Constitutional Democracy says that a State
is independent of the United States Govern
ment ? the Constitution says not. Modern
Democracy says that a State may continue
itself the judge of the unconstitutionality of a
law of Congress; the Constitution says it
cannot, but that the Supreme Court can alone
judge of the matter. Modern Democracy
sympathizes with, and by all its power give's
aid and comfort to the avowed and belligerent
enemies of the United States Government ;
the Constitution in paragraph 1 of Section 3,
article 3 says that "Treason against the
United States " consists " in adhering to their
enemies, giving them aid and comfort."
Thus, that instrument which modem Con
stitutional Democrats hypocritically profess
to revere, itself in express language declares
their conduct to be treasonable.
The leading Constitutional Democrats of
the present day are more treacherous than
the man spoken of in the Bible, who, while
bestowing the kiss of friendship on the brow
of his friend stabbed him to the heart. While
professing reverence and respect for the Con
stitution of the United States, our modern
Democrats are exerting all their power to ut
terly destroy that instrument. They caress
it with their lips, and with parricidal hands
smite it to the heart.
Every act of the leaders of the Democracy
for the last eight years has been one of war
against the most vital provisions and princi
ples of the Constitution of the United States.
They made war upon that instrument in 1856,
when, at Cincinnati they incorpc rated the
"resolutions of '98 " with the Democratic
creed ; they kept up that war during Bucha
nan's administration; they affirmed their war
like acts m the nomination of Breckinridge ;
in the Southern States they are now vigor
ously prosecuting that war with arms in their
hands, while in other States they are carry
ing it on with honied professions on their
lips, the traitorous dagger in their hands, and
black treason and malice in their hearts.
And of such is the Constitutional Democ
racy of the present day.
Government Expenses and Receipts :
The total disbursements of the United States
Government on this coast for the first nine
months of this year has been $8,519,793 ; the
receipts from all sources during that period
was $6, 090, 482. It will thus be seen that
despite all the taxes we psv, Government has
expended nearly #2,300,0(10 more among ns
in nine month* than it has taken from us.
We mention this a* one of the financial ben
efits we experience from union.

says: An important reconnoisance on last
Thursday by two columns of the Tenth Corps,
under 'lerry, went to our right wing, and
after advancing some distance they drove in
the rebel pickets and continued on the Cen
tral or Darbytown road, running up to Rich
mond. The expedition had not gone far when
it was met by opposing skirmishers, and
pressing on, our men found themselves in
front of a new and formidable line of rebel
earthworks, strongly garrisoned by Hoke's
and Field's divisions. This was an import
ant discovery. These works have been built
since the battle of the 20th, and were de

from the rebels then, fhc enomv opened on

satisfactorily accomplished his design, re

menced to withdraw, the rebels sallied out
and attacked them, but were severely re
pulsed, their dead and wounded thickly
strewing the ground. After that, our force
was allowed to return unmolested. Our loss
in killed, wounded and missing was about
four hundred. The enemy suffered to an
equal extent.

Take no Prisoners.? Adjutant General
Baker of Iowa, has just issued an order
which has the ring of the true metal about
it. The following paragraph is essentially
sound and will be seconded by every loyal
Missourian : " If any guerrilla, robber or
thief, crosses from Missouri or any other
State into this State, for the purpose of mur
der, robbery or thieving, in armed bands, no
report will be required oy this department of
prisoners taken, and any officer who takes as
a prisoner any guerrilla, murderer, or thief,
or marauder of such armed band, will at
once be dismissed from the State's service."
General Baker's head is level. Mercy to
guerrillas is an inexcusable crime ! Let
them have the rope, the knife and the bul
let ! Let them be hurried from the face of
the earth in any manner whatever which
embodies the greatest certainty and dispatch.
They have no right to any of the forms of
adminiitratirrjuatic* known to the Conrts.
Let no prisoners b? taken.
