The old Keystone State is playing the
dickens with the public pulse about these
days. It is almost impossible to form
anything like a confident estimate of how
the home vote of that State -will result.
This morning's papers had a telegram that
the Tribtuu liad given up the State by TjO
majority; and now comes our dispatch,
that, with seven counties to hear from,
the Union vote was 1,850 ahead. It is
?' all a muddle. ' The ten days, however,
will soon roll around, and the otKcial re
turns will settle the question definitely.

Head it, ye Copperheads, and hide your
brooms Eead it, ye Secessionists, and go
hang yourselves ! Kead it, all you crawling
snakes, aud shed your skins ! Alexander H.
Stephens, now Vice President of the South
ern Conthieveracy, said in his speech before
the Georgia Secession Convention :
" Is it for the overthrow of the American
r.orernraent, established by our common an
cestry, cemented and built up by their sweat
and blood, and founded on the "broad princi
ples of right, justice and humanity ? And,
as such, I must declare here, as I Have often
done before, and which h is been repeated by
the greatest and wisest of statesmen and pa
triots in this and other lands, that it is the
best and freest Government, the most equal
ia its rights, the most just in its decisions,
the most lenient in its measures, and the most
inspiring ia its principles to elevate the race
of men, that the sua of Ileaten ever shone
upon. Now, for you to attempt to overthrow
such a Government as this , under which we
hare lived for more than three-quarters of a
century ? m which we have gained our wealth,
our standing as a nation, our domestic safety
while the elements of peril are around us,
with peace and tranquility, accompanied with
unbounded prosperity and rights un assailed ?
is the height of madness, folly and wicked
ness, to which I can neither lend my sanction
nor my vote."
While the Lamp, Etc. ? We learn from
the Piacer villi- .Vctfj that Captain John
Nye, brother of our Governor, a bitter,
moat intense Copperhead, has, within a
few days past, repented of the error of his
ways, and been admitted into the folds of
the Union liock, where he is right welcome.
We knew he was coming, but we did not
think he would come quite so soon. Many
a time and oft, on C street, where poli
ticians do most congregate, hath he rated
us about ?' apostacy," cursed at us and
called us an "Abolitionist." and talked
about the days of yore, when he and we
did sail in that good old Democratic ship,
which has since been captured by pirates
and put into the slave trade. Ue has left
her now, and come over among the white
tolks. Bully for Captain John Nye !

From it k&ciou of ttoe most vainglorious
braggatts on the face of the earth, the
Southern chivalry have sunk to the posi
i tion of (i set of miserable whiaurs. The
people ol the North were neither given to j
fighting nor to talking about it ; and the
1 bold Southrons, presuming upon this j
i peaceful character, had no qualms of fear 1
> 1U throw iug down the gage of battle in j
I the unholy cause they had espoused. ;
They were going, that verv summer of 1
, 1S61, to establish their seat of government j
at Washington, winter in Philadelphia, j
cut grass in Broadway in the Spring, and ?
call the roll of their niggers at the foot of
the shaft on Bunker's Hill. If our mem
ory serves us aright, they did neither the
one, nor the other. They soon found that,
! in vulgar parlance, they had ?? waked up
the wrong passenger." The war had
scarcely begun and they received a few
blows in the face, than, in terror and
astonishment, they begau to shriek " bar
barity !**; and'at every fresh " belt," they ,
have squalled the same baby-cry louder I
and louder. Peter Toutant, alias Beau- |
I regard, refuses to remove women, children
and other non-combatants from Charles
ton, and then screams " barbarity !" Ben !
Butler hangs a rebel for audaciously pull
ing down the Hag in front of his head
| quarters, and the Confederacy cry out
i ?? barbarity Our generals hang spies,
j captured within our very camps and
t rebeldom cries " barbarity !" Every act j
which " hurts," no matter how fully au
thorized by the customs of warfare, or
justitieu by the dictates of common sense,
is, in the estimation of rebeldom, inhuman
and barbarous. When, however, it comes
j to the cold-blooded murder of prisoners,
j that is a Southern privilege and a chival
j rous amusement. There is nothing bar
1 barous about that. On the recent friendly
i visit of the Confederate army to Cham
bersburg, there were several quite exten
, oive conflagration*. which were thought to
j have been not exactly accidental, and
I several horses, hogs, sheep and oxen miss
j ing were thought to have not strayed off
by themselves. Even if it should turn
j out that those towns were burnt, and the
stock driven off by the rebel army, there
! would have been nothing barbarous about
1 it ; because it was done by Southern gen
1 tlemen ? don't you see. But now that
i Sheridan, following the illustrious ex
ample so recently set, is trying his hand
at the same game in the Shenandoah Val
, ley, and beating his teacher at it. it is bar
1 barous forsooth. And the Richmond ed
; itors have seated themselves in the ashes,
j and scratching themselves with a potsherd,
bewail themselves over " the fell work In
the Shenandoah Valley." Oh ! chivalry,
I where now is vour cheek ? Where now
j your boast of one to five ? Where now
i the blood of the Huguenots - (jet up out
j of that ! You began the light, tight it
} out. Get on your " black horses," if
j Sheridan has not got them all, ride out to
, the Shenandoah, thrash that Sheridan in
| stead of scolding at him. and then ride
over to Broadway and cut some grass.
! While, however, historv shows the record
| of such acts as those with which rebel
; dom has stained its page, it would be be
I coming in that government to leave the
I word " barbarity " out of its vocabulary.
Everybody who knows Forbes of the
Humboldt . Register, or who knows any
thing about him, knows thut he is one of
those old hard-shell Democrats in whose
eye, in days of peace, all other political
creeds were rank heresy. His democracy
is as lirm as ever, and there is no article
of the democratic faith to which he does
! not subscribe with the same earnestness
{ as ever. The man who would impugn
Forbes' democracy would touch him in a
, tender spot. We wish that every Demo
j crat in the Territory who thinks that
: Copperheadism is Democracy, could read
j an article in the last number of the Regis
i ter, entitled " Freedom of Opinion." W o
; have no doubt that there are. to-day, en
| rolled in the ranks of the Copperheads
I (and who will ou next Saturday night
j carry a brooin,} men who are really pat
| riotic at heart ; but who have allowed
j themselves to be cheated, and have cheat
i ed themselves into the opinion, that by
voting the Copperhead ticket thev are re
1 maining true to the time-honored prin
ciples of Democracy, and are serving the
best interests of the country. They have
looked upon one face of the Chicago Janus,
and they read there in " Peace on the
basis of a restored Union." Feelings and
, predilections warp the judgment of the
I wisest and best of men, and looking
: through the medium of their old demo
cratic predilection.-, they see, with the eye
of hope, a consummation, which an un
clouded vision would show them was
chimerical and impossible. We have
i talked with suchynd left them in wonder.
This '? democracy" appears to be a mono
mania with some men, and we wonder
sometimes whether the final catastrophe
which the Union men are trying to avert,
would awake them from their fearful de
lusion. It is not expected that in throw
ing the weight of their votes end influence
in support of the nation in this dark hour,
Democrats are to forego their fixed, con
scientious, life-long principles upon those
questions of governmental policy which
once constituted the distinction between
the democratic and other parties. Neither
is it required nor is it necessary that they
should give a complete assent and endorse
ment to each and every act of the Admin
istration and measure of the party in
power. It is upon this point that the old
democratic Forbes speaks in his article.
He says : ?
Suppose we do not like Lincoln ; never
voted for turn ; would not hnve nominated
him at Baltimore, if we could have mHf the
choice: but, being for tue war, as the only
honorable, proper, and even as the only pos
sible mode of settling our national troubles
we support him, ana contemn the bogus war
candidate on the treacherous peace platform.
We know many who are similarly situated.
We regret oar want of space to publish
| the entire article; but the above brief ex
| tract is sufficient to show its drift, and
| contains within itself sufficient food lor
j reflection for those Democrat* who think
that the Union ticket is treason to Demo
i eracv, and thai they with hearts beating
for the Union 'and hoping for " Peace on
the basis of a restored Union," can con
sistently walk side by side, next Saturday
night, withjthe avowed friends of Jeff.

Xkw York, October 19. ? 'Hie Herald' s
special from Chattanooga of the 18th says :
From last accounts Sherman's army was in
the vicinity of Yiltanora, Ga. The rebels
were retreating ou Summerville, and were |
supposed to be falling back towards Blue I
Mountains. Wheeler's cavalry are hanging
about Holla, l'orrest was threatening to cross !
near Bridgeport, and hold the |>&ps m Pigeon
Mountain, for the purpose of aiding Hood and j
his arm? to Bridgeport. He is now covering I
Hood's retreat. Sherman is skirmishing with ,
Hood's rear. The result of Hood's move- I
mcnt is favorable to our army. It is thought j
he will not give battle nnless'too hard pressed
by Sherman. Hood's wagon train and a
brigade as guard, are at Callahea. lie may
possibly give battle at this point. If not, he
will have to fail back on Galena, Ala., where
communications arc open. Slocum sent out
a foraging party with 1,500 wagons towards
Hough and Heady, aud Decatur, Ala., which
returned laden with com. It is thought
Hood has all his army with him, which is
supposed to be about 35,000 men. Scouts
state that they are living on parched corn and
dried fruit collected through the country.

1'iiiLAD t 1.1'hia, October 18. ? An arrival
from Winchester last Saturday reports that
there was a great deal of skirmishing with
guerrillas in the valley, but nothing serious
occurred. Supply trains were running regu
larly. Sheridau was sending a large drove of
oxen and sheep to the rear. The destruction
of barns, houses and mills was goiiur on, so
that the rebels would no longer be able to
maintain themselves in the valley.
New Yohk, Oct. 19. ? A Martinsburg spe
cial of the 18th says : Powell's Division of
Cavalry has been on a raid in Luray Valley,
and laid it waste in the same degree as She
nandoah. Everything of value to the rebel
cause was destroyed.
The Tribune's Strasburg special says the
rebel army is believed to be about 12,000
strong, and is commanded by Longstreet. ?
Oar loss on the 13th was about '^40. The
enemy occupies Fisher's Hill.
The Times' special says : Rebel deserters
report that those who desert the rebel army
and come into our lines are not the only ones
who leave the army, and hide away in the

made to the call for men has already chang

The rebels are erecting mortar batteries on
Chapin's farm.
The Enquirer has an article iu which it
speculates most wildly on the political situa
tion, winding up that if a disaster should at
tend Sherman, should Sheridan be withdrawn
from the valley, and should Grant assault
Richmond and be repulsed, then McClellan
would be elected President, of course.

T# the Voter* of Ihe Utaie of >e vadn.
The approaching election, on the 8th day of
November next, is the most important which has
ever occurred in the history of the Republic, und
its consequences, whether of good or evil, us the
people of the loyal States may elect, are destined .
to be, felt through nJl the countless uses ot the |
fature. The contest i? not for the supremacy of
party ? not for the success ?f any "f the princi
ciples which, like ripples upon the deep ocean Of
unity and brotherhood, playfully disturbed the
political surface in the past ? uot for the recogni
tion of any portion of the conflicting policies of j
party, wliicli iu the days of peace served rather J
to unite than to divide uii enlightened anil envied |
people, claiming a common history, a common
destiny, and :f common God. The struggle, as
well throughout tho North a* beyond the Missis- j
nippl and the Jamep. ft between those who love
their country and would peril all to save it, and
the sympathizers with treason, who aro laboring,
for the destruction of the Government of their
fathers, or of tho laud which gave them protection
lroxn the tyrannv of another hemisphere which
left t hem homeless. The former are represented
by the Union party? the latter by what is known i
as the I'eace- Democratic party, whose platform
was drafted under the eve and auspices of trea
son, whose aim is a recognition of the independ
ence of the Southern Confederacy, and whose
leader stauds convicted of having saved the rebel
capital by the deliberate sacrifice of thirty thous
and patriots in tho swamps of tbeCbickahomiuy.
Fellow-citizens, which ticket trill you cote i
The platform of the so-calied Democratic party
is the voice of cowardice, treason and enmity to
the Federal Government, aud a libel upon the de
termination and patriotism of the North. It was
dictated in a spirit of disloyalty, and adopted by
the representatives of a party whose leaders are
Southern Secessionists and northern abettors of
the rebellion. It is a special plea for the receded
South, and its avowed purpose is tho destruction
of the Union, or its restoration upon a basis hu
miliating and dishonorable to the Government,
and fruitful of ceaseless discord and revolution in
the future. Is the loval North, which has armed
aud sent its uiauhoo.i to the tield, whose richest
blood has fertilized the valleys of tho South aud
made them sacred.' whose homes aro hung in
sable." and whose hearts are heavy with the mem
ory of the dead? is the loyal North prepared to
withdraw its armies from the center ot the South,
reached through the carnage of a hundred bloody
fields, to abandon a cause so nearly won, and in
which so many noble heart* have bled.- -to admit
itself vanquished when tinal victory is withiu. its
grasp, to pay to European creditors the monstrous
debt of the Confederacy, to return to bondage the
war-emancipated slave who has stood sentinel
arouud the camp-tires of freedom, or to recognize
tho independence of the rebellious State*? If not.
then is the Chicago platform an InfumoUR false
hood, which tho honor of the North demands to
be refuted iu tone* of tliuuder on the 8th of No
vember next. It is the proclamation of a ma
tured conspiracy against the peace and well-being
of a loyal people, aud the once veuerated name of
Democracy id defiled by the touch of treason.
The platform of the Union party, framed In a
spirit of patriotism, is but the echo of that all
pervading sentiment which is to rebuild the
broken urehes of the Republic and plant the rose
lu fields made desolate by the track of war.
Fellow-citizen s. which ticket will you cote f
Let no loyal luuu ue lea irorn nix allegiance to
the Government by blindly following tho banner
of party. There ;tre but two parties now, nor
cau there be u thin I until peace sits aguiu upon
the thresholds of a mourning people, and but u
single issue divide* them? those who are for the
Government and those who arc against it. There
Is but one wav by which uu honorable peace can
be secured? by a prosecution of the war against
treason until it kneels in submission, disarmed
and defenseless, beueath the ttftjr it has betrayed.
Either must this be doue, or the independence of
the south be recoguized. There is no middle
course ? no process of eonciiiatiou or compromise
by which iliu South eau be saved from submis
sion and the Government saved from dishonor.
What do the leaden of that party styling Itself
Democratic propose to do ? To elect a peace
Congress, a peace President on a peace platform,
and then accept xueh terms of peace as may be
dictated by the Confederacy : and all this i* to be
accomplished in the name of .Democracy. What
i* there in the Democracy of to-day to remind the
disciple of Jefferson and Jackson of the Democ
racy of the past .' Do its champions, with treas
on swelling in the heart and dying on the lips in
blunder of the Admiulstratiou, ever talk of the
principles of that party with which they uiuntle
their disloyalty t Do they proclaim against bunks
and high tariffs, against internal improvements
and popular sovereignty t lu the empty name of
Democracy, which many of them years ago ab
jured lu the secret councils of Kuow Nothingism,
they denounce the Administration aud the war
for the preservation of the Union, and seek to lure
the unthinking from their fealty by the magic of
a simple word. Abandoned upon the inaugura
tion of the rebellion by thfc great and good man
who gavo It character aud direction In the past,
the party has beeu seized upon and converted into
an apology for crime and iui instrument of revo
lution. Its principles ore scorned or forgotten by
the conspirators who irreverently invoke its name
in extenuation of treason, and it* temples are des
ecrated by the homage of tho Godless worshippers
who kueel betide its altars. In it* high places
where once sat the great teachers ot Democracy,
now crouch the coweriug apologists of auarchy
and disunion ; und its hulls which iu the pust
echoed the eloqueuce of the pat riot m of the Re
public, now rhjg with the shouts of lawlessness
aud disloyalty. And this is the phautom invoked
from the "grave of party by the spirit of treason
which lead* tho van of disaffection in the North,
and beckons the loyal devotee of Democracy to a
betrayal of his country.
Felloio- citizens, which ticket will you vote f
Your suffrages must be glveu to McClellan,
the Chicago platform und natloual dishonor, or
to Lincoln, the triumph of the Federal arms and
the establishment of au honorable and lasting
peace. Calmly viewing the vital issues of the
canvas*, cau you doubt the awful consequences
of a Peace Democratic victory in November i
Cau you hesitate in the performance of what
every loyal mau must recoguize us a duty to his
country? Tho consequences of such a triumph,
foreshadowed by the disloyal uiins and utterances
of the men who control the party, cannot be con
templated without a shudder. The voice of the
South, still rebellious and in arms, would direct
the councils of the Government and dictato the
terms of u re construction. An armistice would
bo declared, to which the loyal North would not
couscut, and a betrayed und outraged people
would rise iu arms against their rulers, and civil
war and anarchy would desolntc the land aud
give independence to the revolted South. This is
the treasonable hope of Yallandigham, Cox,
Wood, Yeorhees aud Pendleton? this is the re
sult for which the Chicago platform was formed.
But why expose tho ?purposes of such a party ?
NVhy discus* the manifest results of the triumph
ot" such a cause ? They are plain to the appre
hension of every mind not dead to reflection, not
impervious to the suggestions of reason, not irre
vocably wedded to prejudice and error. Let us
hope that the time Is past when men may be ar
raved in enmity to the government by the decla
ration of demagogues that the " Constitution has
been violated and trampled upon by the Admin
istration," aud tnat the struggle for existence in
which the nation is now eugaged " is an abolition
war tor the destruction of slavery." Such an
appeal to the prejudices of the uuretiecting is as
criminal as It is false aud inaliciouo. In the lan
guage of Jefferson Davis, ?' slavery has nothing
to do with the rebellion." It in a war between
I Northern muscle mid .Southern aristocracy, and
sluvery was made the excuse for its inauguration.
For thirty years the Southern mind had been
educated to treason, and the election of a Re
publican President was the pretext not the
cause of the rebellion. For the avowed purpose
of severing all political connection with the toil
ing millions of the North, the slaveholdjng aris
tocracy of the South drew the sword of revolution
and trampled in the dust the sacred flag of our
fathers. They flung their shouts of defiance
across the Potomac uud the Mississippi, and
flaunted the banner of revolt in the face of a loyal
people. Then, like a mighty upheaval of the
solid earth, rose the sturdy, toll-stained millions
of the North. For a moment they stood in si
lence, scarcely crediting the reality" of the cry of
*' disunion" wafted to their ears on every South
ern breeze; then swords in countless thousands
glittered in the light, aud like the vengeance of
God swept southward the conquering hosts of
freemen. The result is before us. Hundreds of
thousands have perished by the way, but the
armies of the Republic have planted the old flag
again In the heart of the Confederacy, and Trea
son lies writhing in tho agonies of dissolution.
Another effort, aud the whole Held will be ours.
We muet eave the country, let the fate of tlatery be
Kkea it may. To this end the peace party of the
North must be defeuted in November.

?What would be the results of a triumph of the
Peace Democracy in Nevada? Iu the Secession
programme, arranged at Richmond in the begin
ning of the rebellion, the Pacific States and Terri
tories were mapped an portions of the Southern
i Confederacy, Arms and means to revolutionize
! them were provided by the Secretary of War of
the last Democratic Administration, but through
the fidelity of General Sumner, the commander of
the Pacific Department, the scheme of revolution
aud treason wan thwarted. Although foiled In
I8tfl, the emisiaries of rebellion have never relin
quished the hope of either alienating California,
Oregon, Washington and Nevada from the Fede
ral Union, or of rendering their connection value
less to the Government ; and what they failed to
effect by the use of the bayonet then, they are now
seeking to accomplish throngh the aid of tho bal
lot-box. Should every other State in the Union
declare a preference for the Baltimore nominees in
November, still would a victory by the enemies
of the Government in Nevada prove an inconceiv
able disaster to the prosperity ofonr young State.
Let us glance for a moment at the frnitsof such a
triumph. Let us see whether, viewed solely in
the light of personal interest, tlw Southern-sym
pathizing man of business in our midsl ctfn aft'ord
to uld in the establishment of Peace Democratic
rule iu Nevada. The state would beoome the
centre and asylum of the exiled and turbulent
traitors of the East and West, and the voice of
disloyalty would be heurd unchecked In our
courts of justice and in our halls of legislation.
The skies would leaden in the angry frown of
threatened tumult? confidence In the integrity
and supremacy of the law would bo banished,
capital would be withdrawn, the mines would re
wain unworked aud undeveloped, and universal
stagnation would prevail. With a representation
iu Congress in political keeping with the ruler* of
the State, in antagonism with the sentiment of the
North, in sympathy with treason and at war with
the Administration and Ua policy, what could rea
sonably be expectcd of the Government ? Would
it establish a Branch Mint in the State tor the use
and benefit of it* enemies t W o'uld It accord pro
prietorship In Us mines of fold and silver to the
agents anil emissaries of rebellion 1 Would is
willingly assist in the construction of rallroadl t
. ?
and linen of telegraph for the conveul&ce'of a J
people intent upon itv destruction ? No ! De- j
nied the assistance of the home Government, re- !
fused the aid of capital, overrun by disloyal refu
gees and outlaws, armed conflict and revolution, j
which might not be averted, would scarcely in- i
create the quiet honors of ruined trade and prog
trate industry. All the disasters which would in
evitably follow a triumph of the ponce party In
November, would be multiplied in blessings to the ;
people of Nevada by the success of the Union !
Ftllotc ctiiztHt, which ticket will yon rote t
We appeal to such citizens of Irixti birth an are |
thoughtlessly clinging to the empty name and
broken pillars* of a once honored, now infaoioUH
party, to carefully examine the position thwy .
occupy in thut relation towards the land they left
in bondage and the Government to which they j
?tnnd pledged in allegiance. In blindly following ,
the lenders of that party in their treasonable as- i
saulta upon the Government, yon are committing
a crime for which you will be held accountable to |
your children and to your God. By the holy |
Evangelists and the sacred symbol* oi' your faith,
you have sworu to " bear true faith, allegiance
and loyalty " to the Government of the United j
Wtates.to defend it* honor, to obey it* laws, und j
to protect its tiug The aim of the Peaco Demo- !
cracy of to day in, to divide its empire, to assint I
its enemies, to violate its lawn, and to desecrate I
its Hag. To Assist in the success of such a party ?
is perjury uud treason to the adopted citizen. In J
the nuiuu of tho Government which ha* given yeu j
welcome aud protection ? lu the name of the op
pressed ot Ireland, whose tearful eyes huve ever
turned with hope towards the laud of the free? j
iu the name of the down-trodden and struggling !
millions of every laud? in the uame of humanity,
of freedom, of justice ? iu the name of God ? we
abjure you to pause and reflect. Youarcoppo?lug
the Government ; you are laboring with traitors
who, in the name of Democracy, are plotting its
destruction ; yon are fighting the battles of slavery
and of rebellion. Y ou have espoused the cause of
the aristocratic and governing clasnes of England
?the remorseless ravageis of the homes of your
birth ? the determined abettors of Atnericau din
j union. You are assisting them to re-fa*teu the
yielding fetters upon the limbs of struggling Ire
laud, by attempting to destroy u Government
| which has lifted the beacon of hope on the shores
| of the New World to the enslaved but freedom
loving millions of tho Old. Divide tlie Federal
[empire, or yield it to the rule of slavery, und
j where is the hope of Ireland ? Can she look for it
iu the " Holy Alliances " of European devpotism t
Can she discern it iu the silent tongue of Mazzlni,
iu the listless arm of GarabiUdi, in tho dead echoes
of the voice of Schamyl among the crags of the
Caucassusf Can she hear it iu the groans of
I Hungary and Poland? Can she gather it from the
sigh-ladencd breezes of the Danube, the Neva, the
Rhine, the Adriatic or the Po f Westward, to the
giant Republic of another coutiuent. the champion
of freedom, the terror of tyrunuy, muft she turu
for redemption. Is not your duty plain t Dis
union would be death to Irish liberty, aud ft peace
triumph would be dixunion.
Fellow-citizen*, vhick ticket icill you pott t
To all citizens of foreign birth we appeal, to
save the Republic, the home 01' their udoptiou, the
hope of liumauity, the Jaiid of the free. Do uot
let the blight of troaHon destroy itH growing great
I uess, or disunion divide it* increasing strength,
j Let it not be said that republics are a failure, and
I tliut an enlightened people arc incapable of aelf
| government. Whether Xorth or South, whether
under Vallandighiuu or Davis, whether by war
! rant of the Chicago platform or the Confederate
| Constitution, whether iu the name of Democracy
! or disunion, let the euemics of the Government be
j your enemies? Its friends, your friends ? and the
( banner of a re-united and mighty people will soon
float aguin iu undisputed supremacy over every
I .Southern hilltop and ou every Southern plain.
And to Americans we appeal. tt? litaud by the ting
of their fathers, the land of their love, In thH day
[ of awful peril to the Republic bequeathed to them
I by the heroes of a generation goue. The hope
and history of the rebellion are known to you uud
the veil of " Democracy " fail? to screen from your
penetration the deadly serpent of treason which
lies coiled behind it. While muny of those who
have come to us from other lauds are listening to
the sireu songs of disloyalty and he-Stating be
tweeu right aud wrong, to you we turn for com
fort und lor hope. A few more days of watching,
a few more sleepless night*, and the danger will
be past, never to return. Already the clouds are
liftiug in the East, and the light of peace Is smiling
tlirough the riftiug breath of buttle. One more
effort, Xorth aud South, aud the broad lield 1*
ours. A crushing defeut of Northern treason at
the ballot-box in November will be worth a dozen j
captured Kichiuouds, and an honorable and last
ing peace will be the result. Union men of
Nevadu. you know your duty ; do not fall to per- J
form it ou the tfth of November.

Terrible and Fatal Accident.? A
terrible accident occurred this morning,
near Dayton, by which a boy, named
Creisler, aged about eight years, was in
stantly killed. A team of run-away
horses attached to a buggy or light wagon
came tearing down the Tood from towards
Silver, and when near the forks where
the road turns off toward Carson, encoun
tered the boy, running over him and
knocking his brains out. We did not
learn to whom the team belonged.
P. S. ? We have since learned that C.
E. DeLong and Richard Allman were
driving the team, when becoming blinded
by the dust, DeLong drove off a bank
and capsized, the horses breaking away
from them with the above fatal result.
