arrwiAL PAFKK UF TIIK «OUAIV. JOHN MAIIIN, EDITOR. 4JITV OI" MUSCATINE. FRIDAY MORNING SEPT. 18,1863. UNION STATE TICKET. Co. For Gov©ruor CM. WM. 1V1. STO.liK, of Mariom For Lieutenant-Governor, E.^O€II W. EASTJI A!%, oi Hardin Co. For Snprerao Judge, JOIl.t F. oi Scott coontr. To tlie lem«»crntic Central Com mittee oi Must'Jitiue County You propose, through the liberality of vour party friends, to havo three barbncues in this county, for the purpose of advancing your party interests. These barbacues might be considered eminently praise worthy, if so many soldiers had left their families in com'ortuble circumstances at home." But you must know, g. nt'emen cf the committee, that the wives and children of many cf the soldiers are actually this ver\ day suffering for the want of the beef and mutton you propose to deal out at political barbacues, and that this want will increase as the season far beef and pork packing ap proaches. Were you to ascertain the wishes of the soldiers in this respect, they would assure you that their happiness and comfort woul i be the better consulted if you would appro pri&te the money set apart for the gratifica tion of your own stomachs, to furnish food, if not raiment, to those who have the right to expect of them some contribution from you You certainly should know, gentlemen of the Democratic committee, that the individual who leaves a family and enters the army as a private soldier, and receives only a private pay, cannot, under the most favorable cir cumstances, provide any too much for hi family. Hence the families of such private soldiers must be dependent upon the kind ness and generosity of those who remain at home, to a considerable extent. You are doubtl:ss aware, to), that many of your par ty have been generous in their devotions in behalf of sick soldiers and their newly fami lies, while the great mass of your party have contributed neither money, kind word1?, nor goods. Many of your party promised much at the outset of this rebellion, but have per formed little. You likewise know that had it not been for the generous donations of prominent Abolitionists to the Ladies' Benev olent Society of this city, many of these fam iliej would have suffered from both cold and hunger, as one of your number baa already made public. The Benevolent Society which, through the aid of "Abolitionists," for two years past has sent out its aigels of charity to feed and clothe the soldier's wife and watch by the bed-side of his -ick babe, has suspended, and unless you make up your minds to abandon your own greediness and give up your sur plus beef, mutton and pork, and come to the aid of these families, they must suffer on and on, while the husband and father weeps as he contemplates the motive which prompts you to stuff your own well fed bread-baskets at barbacues for the purpose of creating and keeping in existence opposition to the Gov ernment, now struggling for its very life, in stead of alleviating the necessities of the wife and little ones he has left behind. Do not think because a tory officer or an "army cor respondent" compliments you for your inter est in their politicul standing that the heart of the private soldier is gladdened by your malignant opposition to a just and good Gov ernment, or an occasional gratuitous copy of your county orgin. What cares the soldier for your veneration of the "Consti'ution as ii. is and the Union as it was," or for the suc cess of a Copperhead ticket, when the maii brings him news of your grand barbacues, as well as of the suffering of hi3 wife and lit tle ones, and that after the Democracy went to bed with stomachs filled with beef ami mutton, with relishes, his darlings went sup perless V We direct your attention to no fancy picture, but to one vouched for by one of your own number. Gentlemen, you assume the name of De mocracy, properly defined "the greatest good to the greatest nun:ber." We presume you use the word to induce ignorant voters to Re lieve, as the Democracy prior to 1861 was always loyal to the country, so are you. But remember that something besides barbacues conduces to the greatest good, especially when given by men in sympathy with treason and rebellion. If you are Democrats remember that the laws of this Government make no distinction between candidates for Congress, Senators, or editors, and the noble soldiers who are fighting for their country's honor and perpetuity. Gentlemen, you have the means now of proving your loyal Democracy, and we would like to believe that you will hesitate and heed our suggestion. You degrade your in tellects by paying so much heed to your stomachs. You detract much from the noble ble name of Democracy by using barbacues to make votes that shall be used against the bullets of our brave boys. You have now the power to rise above the low and treason able machinations of tory tricksters,and build up for yourselves a loyal reputation. True, you may, by carrying out your barbacues, receive the plaudits of those who desire the Davis Confederacy to become a cation—who clamor for peace on any terms, and make some ignorant voters believe that your De mocracy is that of Jefferson, Jackson, and Douglas—but you cannot help perceiving that while you do that you forever lose the respect and esteem of the gallant private sol diers whose wi.'e and babe may be suffering for the want of your feast'.ng—some "melt ing hand of charity" to assure them that though the night be dark after the barbacue, there is some gentle friend claiming the name of Democrat who thinks more of a soldier's family than a Copperhead barbacue. Let that gentle hand be the Democratic County Central Committee," and when the story of your chaiities reach the noble soldiers' camp they'll think more and better of your Democ racy. Yours, sincerely, EDITOR JOCRHAL, For the Soldiers' Families. 1ST Gen. Tuttle has a poor show for any votes at all in Pottawatamie county. The Bugle refuses to hoist his name, and the Copperhead County Convention refused to recognize him as a candidate. The Conven tion passed a resolution strongly approving the nomination of Duncombe and Mason, but not a word was said concerning the mili tary candidate who heads the ticket jy In one of the great Union demonstra tions in Ohio, the following motto was in scribed on a banner: "We FIGHT for peace. Cowards no for it." nan Mcetiag nt Dec Molne*. A rousing lTnion meeting was held at the capital last Saturday. Upwards of 6,000, people were in attendance. Maj. Gen. Samuel R. Curtis presided, and speeches were made by C. Ben. Darwin and Senator Grimes. Col. Win. M. Stone, although suffering from ill ness, was called out and made a half hour's -peich, "which (says the Register) was ap plauded again and again, by an audience which had been on their feet as listeners for five or six hours In the evening speeches were made by Senator Harlan, General Curtis and H. C. Rippey, Esq. As a whole the meeting was a great success, and augurs an overwhelming victory in October. Copperhead Abuwe of Loyal Deiu oeruta. We noted the other day the marked differ erence between the conduct of the present canvass in Iowa, on the part of the friends of the Union, and the opposition, touching the treatment of the principal candidates. An other hing which has doubtles* attracted the attention and received the sapprobation of all candid men, is the malignant bitterness with which the Copperhead journals and ora tors attack all those Democrats who have had the patriotism and courage to leave their par ty, upon seeing thit it was leagued with the enemies of the cou ltiy. It might seem, indeed, that the general dis ruption of party ties, which followed upon the breaking out of the war, was enough of iiself to convince honest men that it was no time for partisan feeling. Stephen A. Dou g'as uttered his noblest words just before he died, and left as a legacy to his countrymen, not his "Democracy," but his patriotism— not a party platform, but words of courage and hope for all men of all partu s who should stand by the country in its time of peril, and of indignation against all men of all parties who should not so stand by it. Others of scarcely less note took tho sime position, and still occupy it, regardless of the abuse of those who give up to party what should be given to the country. The names of Butler, Brady, John Cochrane, Lehman, Brough, Logan, McClernand, and a host of others, will at once be thought of. In cur own State, it has been the sainc way, and Crocker, Bussey, Williamson, and other prominent Democrats, train no longer with "the Democracy," but receive the assaults of its friends. Here is a specimen from the Dubuque Herald Thackeray's Yellowplush, in his auto-biog raphy, says, with a well assumed pride: During these three yeirs of witch I distin guished my?elf not a little in the musicle way, for I b!oo the bellus of the church hor gin, and very fine tunes we played too That is nearly the style of such little Yellow plushes as Login, McClernand, Dickinson, Williamson, and that squad. They "distin guish themselves" by blowing "thebel'uses," while the Abolition party select and finger out the tunes. Every once in a while some one of these fellows writes out a small portion of his life, winding up with and very fine tunes we play too, at which all the Aboli tionists on the other side of the "horgin laugh. They very well know that all the Yellowplush fraternity is good for is to putnp a little breath into their instrument. And it is a very mild specimen at that.— It seems a little singular that these abused Democrats should be so unceremoniously pla ced in the back seats by the Copperhead writers. Of the four men mentioned by the Herald, two are Major Generals in the army, one is Attorney General of New York, and the other a Colonel of an Iowa regiment, who has been spoken of as highly in the columns of this "Abolition" journal at all events as has been the most radical of our soldiers. It is me .n'y and wickedly false to say that the friends of the Government called Aboli tionists have given to former Democrats a whit less consideration than to the most rad ical Free Soilers. It is meanly and wickedly false to say that the Administration has done so. Of all the Generals now having impor tant commands, but one—Gen. Banks—sup ported Mr. Lincoln for the Presidency in 1860, whilst the departments at Washington and the custom houses in our principal cities, swarm with "Democratic'' officials. The truth i«, the Copperheads are mad be cause the best men in the eld Democratic party, all over the country, from Maine to Tennessee, and from Tennessee to California, have left the standard of party to join the standard of country. That is what's the matter. A FLYING MACHINE.—Dr. Solomon An drews, of Perth Arnboy, N. J., has invented a flying machine, which was tested on Fri day, the 4th inst., to the satisfaction of him self «nd an admiring crowd. He guided it against the wind in any direction he chose, and also went in a spiral course upward at the rate of not less than 120 miles per hour. It has sufficient power to carry three men.— Its form was that of three cigars pointed at both enls, sccure together at their longi tudinal equators, covered by a net, and sup porting by one hundred and twenty cords a car sixteen feet below under its center. The car was twelve feet long, made of basket work, and was sixteen inches wide at the bottom. The aerostat, or cylindroids, were made of varnished linen, like ordinary bal loons. The Democratic ga:n in Vermont is shown to be quite lxrge, which 'S gratifying, but our failure in California is not only dis graceful but almost incomprehensible. In 1860 there was verv nearly a majority of 3'V 000 against Abolitionism. Lincoln got only a bare plurality as compared with Douglas' vote, but was in a minority of quite 30,000 on the whole poll. Now, on a straight-out fight Abolitionism secures ascendancy by nearly 20,000 majority, if the reports be true. We cannot account for so disgraceful a ter mination of a canvass which promised the most auspicious results for the Democracy and the nation.—Dubuque Herald. It is easily enough accounted for. Califor nia went for the country, simply because her people are thoroughly honest and loyal.— They went against Democracy" because they believed it to be thoroughly dishonest and disloyal. The people are not so easily hoodwinked and bamboozled as Demo cratic" leaders suppose, and there is r.o doubt that those who are green enough to suppose that the canvass in Iowa promises "the most auspicious results for the Democracy" will wake up the morning after election with most tremendous fleas in their ears. California won't be a patching to it. COPPESNSAD OBOAN AT TIPTOW.—The Copperhead Central Committee of Cedar County are about starting an organ of their own, having been egregiously swindled by the Courier of this city. We understand that Mr. Rousch, owner of the defunct Demo crat, who, at the commencement of the rebel lion took a highly honorable position, in which his Copperhead fr ends would not sus tain him, has been bought up to run the pro posed treason grinder. Ariivals at Saratoga this season 30,000 last year less than 20,000. Wliat a Cat* in Tho following table of elections that have been held in Vermont fiom the year 1854 to tho lato election will be a sufficient an swer to the Courier's lying boast of Demo cratic gains in that State. It is only ten years since the Democrats had a clear ma jority in the vote of the State. Since the or ganization of the Republican party, the next year, tho Temocratic vote has grown beauti fully less, while the Republicans have risen from a (Whig) nority of 5,541 to a major ity of 21,000. If the Courier can draw any consolation from these figures, it is wclcomc to it: YEARS REL'UB. DRU. BKFVB.

Wo never have believed, nor have we ever said, that the Democratic: party was an or ganization made up solely and exclusively of traitors and tories. Wc have said, and still say, that while hundreds and thousands of Democrats are devoted to the unity and pros perity of our common country, the managers, wire-workers, and leaders of that party, who have with one accord opposed every measure of the Government, intended to aid the more speedy suppression of a slaveho'dcrs rebel lion, were anything but loyal and patriotic We believe the leaders »re tories of a blacker stripe than were the tories cf '70 or 1812 That we do not misrepresent them, we pre sent this record, with the additional remark that there is no difference between toryism in Iowa and that in Indiana and New Hamp shire Only four days after the fall of Sumter, ir April, 18G1, Franklin Pierce, whose Demoo racy cannot be questioned, said "I do not believe aggression by arms is a suitable or possible remedy for existing evils." John II Eastman was but recently a Dem ocratic candidate Congress from Mr. Pierce's State oLNew Hampshire, and during the canvass used this language "IF THE SOUTH NEED ANY ASSIST ANCE I WILL GO CUT AND ASSIST THEM WON'T DO A TUING that can be interpreted as in ANY WAY i'RORTIXI! Tnis WAR. I ain per sonally a qu'tinted wi'h Jefferson Davis—1 have seen letters from hiin. He is a man of wonderful executive power and firmness of will. Pr sident Lincoln is a KNAVE an IMBECILE, a rsritPKK, »nd a TYRANT, WHO CUk.SEs THE COUNTRY WITH HIS AL MINlaTRATION. Poor miserable, ignorant, LOUSY negro. The BLOOD THIRSTY followers of BEASTS, the CLELLHT." Daniel Marcv was also a Democcttic candi date for Congress in the 1st District of that State at the same time, and in a public speech said: "IT IS TIMB FOB A SEPARATION OF THE COUNIRY. 1 HAVE A MIND TO SELL MY PROI-EHTY AND GO Soi'TH." Thos. P. Tread well, a prominent Democrat of New Hampshire, in a public speech at Concord, said TnE DRAFT MUST BR RESISTED AT ALL NAZ ARDS. I SHOULD PREFER THE ADMINISTRATION OF JEFFERSON DAVIS TIIAN THAT OF PRES IDENT LINCOLN." Dr. Nathan Batchelder, an active member of the Demacratic State Convention, that as sembled in Connecticut in January last, said defiantly: I AM A REBEL. SLAVERY IS RIGHT Ex-President Pierc in a recent speech de c'ared "The 'KNIGHTS OF THE GOLDEN CIRCLE' ac doing a GOOD WORK in this State." Wm. Burns, Democratic candidate for Congress in the 3d District of New Hamp shire, last spring, said RATHER THAN THAT THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION SHOULD BE ENFORCED, AND SLAVERY BE ABOLLsnBD, I WOULD PREFER THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE DE STROYED. In Ju"e last the Democracy of Illinois, in State Convention at Springfield, resolved That .the further OFFENSIVE PROSE^U TION OF TIIlS VVAll tends to subvert the Constitution and the Government, and en tiii's upon this nation ALL TEE DISASTROUS CONSEQUENCES OF MISRULE AND ANARCHY. Mr. Ingalls, a Democratic stump orator, in a public speech at Durant. Cedar county, in this State, faid: S r, not another man or another dollar shall this Administration have to carry on this unnatural war. Let us have a cessation of hostilities for six months and we Democrats will make peace. A few weeks since Fernando Wood ad dressed the Democracy of New York City and said I c'are for peace, and as pre paratory for peace, I am in favor of a cessa tion of hostilities. The war should cease, be cause it should never havo been commenced, inasmuch as there is no coercive military power in the mi itary government against the States." In the Spring of 1862, Thomas H. Sey inour, Democratic candid-He for Governor of Connecticut, having been invited to attend a Union war meeting to aid in raising volun teers, caused the following sentiment to be published: "The meeting calls loudly for men and means to aid the subjugation and conse quent degradation and overthrow of the South. I FOLLOW, GENTLEMEN, IN NO SUCH CRUSADE, NEITHER WILL I INTRIBUTE IN ANY WAY TO THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF ANY SOOH BLOODY PURPOSES." In April lust the Dubuque Herald advised the people to offer the following supplication on National Fast day '"For having been the cause of sending forth thousands of infamous wretches to commit upon persons and property the crimes of rape, burglary, arson, larceny, and other crimes wh ch can only be named by demons, have mercy on us, O, Lord." And here we pause at this time. Such, reader, is the Democracy of those who con trol Democratic conventions and dictate the policy of a party once led by Jefferson, Jack son, Wright, and Douglas. Every man on the State ticket with James M. Tuttle will to day endorse the above recorded sentiments. An sel Humpheys, who presided at the late Dem ocratic County Convention, will respond Amen to them. Major Sherfey, Democratic candidate for Senator in this county, will not deny that he has expressed them as his own convictions time after time. Samuel Gilbert, Democratic candidate for Sheriff, has approx imated so near to their reiteration on the stump that he will at once recognize the frame work of his speech. 1'hat Mr. Mahan na, Democratic candidate for Treasurer and Recorder, has entertained any other senti ments during this war he will not attempt to establish. To a greater or less extent every Democratic candidate in this county stands by the sentiments we have published. We have only begun this record, and shall coutinue at an early day. The following Federal Generals are Catho lics Rosecrans, Meade, Foster and Gilmore, Thought* for the White B.iiborerv So long as si .very exists in the South, yoa cannot hope to be i espected there, because if you are poor your honesty will not protect you from the sneer of the master or the laughter of the slave. So long as slavery exists in the South, the wh'te 1 ibor'ng man can never acquire a title in fee to the land. Small furniers arc un known in slave States, except in some sterile spots, where living at all is a hardship. So long as slavery exists in the South, the richest and noblest portion of the United States is shut against the feet of the white labon The most he can i xpect is to have a winter's work on the levee, or exhaust soul and body on a steamboat in some menial ca pacity. So long as slavery exists in the South, nei ther Catholic Church, nor school, nor Catho lic colony w ill he loun 1 there. The land will be as ha ren as those of South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Mississippi, Arkan sas, Alabama, Tennessee, Ac., &c. So long as slay ry exists in the South, the white laburer will be treated worse than the slave. Ho will he looked upon, as Hammond, ihe S.)Uth Carolina Senator, said, as a "mud sill," a thing to be trod on, and scrape your shoes on, and then left to rot and cast aside. So long as slavery exists in tho South, the aristocratic or oppressive classes will ride. Manual labor of any kind will be treated with contempt. The children of the white laborer will be taught by slavery to despise their parentage. A public opinion unknown or suppressed in the free, is all powerful in the slave States, ami by this "the pride of life" is established in the high places, and they who do not bow down before the idol must seek a lime elsewhere. Coming from the org n of Bishop Purcoll, of tho Catholic Church, the Catholic Tele gaph, we commend tho foregoing nut-shell argument to the attention of those Catholics who believe negro emancipation will result in the degradation and destruction of white labor. We hope the time will come when the Catholics of this country will find that the spirit of liberty still lives in their church, and that pro-slavery ideas are not universal. Iowa HI. 10. Conference.

It is a valuable sheet for fu ture reference. It is, at the same time, a good advertisement of the enterprise of the company. MAUKY AS A PIBATB.—M. F. Maury, the rebel, whose letter to the London Times ap piauding the course of Valdigham, Governor Seymour, and Northern Copperheads gener ally, we have recently noticed, now turns up as in command of the pirate Georgia, which burned the ship Constitution off the Island of Trinidad.

Mackey, of the 83d Iowa, I: as been promoted to the Colonelcy of that regiment in the place of Col. S. A. Rice, made a Brigadier General, Col. Mackey had command of the 33d in the Helena battle and acquitted himself admirably. He is popular with his m. n and an excellent officer. li.'ut. Geo. C. Remey, son of Major Reiney, of Burlington, was captured, with a number of naval ofti^ora and marines, upon the walls of Fort Sumter, and is therefore a piisoner. Lieut.

The heavy rain which fell during August retarded the work somewhat, but twelve miles of the track will be ready for the iron by the 1st of October and it is confi dently expected that the road will bo opened to Nevada this fall. WEI.L DONK.—The Davenport Democrat ssys the premiums taken by Jos. C. Simp son at iho late Scott County Fair amount to the very handsome sum of $410. M. W.

Craig, from ttie same place took $100 Lady Peo*ta took about $75 and other hor ses various other large sums. NEW RAILBOAD PROJECT.—A company has been organized at Davenport to construct a railroad from Marengo to Blairxtown, in Ben ton county. Th s will unite two of the most important lines of railway in the State—the M. & M. and the Cedar Rnpids and Missouri River—thus giving the people of Benton and the tier of counties west of it the advantage of two routes to the East. The proposed road, we believe, is only eight miles in length. LOLISA COOXTY ITKMI.—A grand Union rally is to take place at Grand view at o'clock Saturday next, at which Jacob Butler ant) 1). C. Cloud, of Muscatinc, arc announced as speakers. A Union meeting is also an nounced at Wapello, on the 29th inst., with Hon. James Harlan and Henry O'Connor as speakers—Three of the Democratic nominees in this coun'y decline being candidates on the Democratic ticket, to wit Capt. John Albaugh, nominee for sheriff Rev. Camp bell, nominee for Superintendent of common Scho JIS and Col. Garner, for County Sur veyor.— John Dolson, a son of David Dolson living in the southern part of the county, an cidcntally shot and killed himself last Satur day, while crossing a fence with a gun.—M Davison, of Wapello, had his safe robbed of about $400 in cash and $200 in bank checks, during a temporary absence from his store on Wednesday afternoon of last week.—A strnnger was arrested on suspicion of having committed the robbery, but nothing was proven against him. No clue to the affair has yet been obtained,—We glean these items from the Wapello Republican. FATAL ACCIDENT.—H. C. Miller, an old citizen of Mahaska county, caine to his death a few days since by tho accidental discharge cf a pistol in his ovcrcoat pocket. AM INSANE MAN BORNEO TO DEATH —Wm. Hillis, an insane man who had been kept in confinement for ten years past in Van Buren county, set fire to his prison house on the night of the 5th inst., and was burned to death. —We notice that the Butternut Supervi sors of Dubuque county, in imitation of New York City Alderman of the same per sausion, have attempted to nullify the draft by a resolution to purchase the exemption of citizens of th'U county who may be drafied. Their action is a disgrace to our fair State, —A large Union mass meeting was held at Keosauqua a few days since, addressed by Senator Harlan and others. Every township in the county sent up large delegations, with flags and banners and music. One team came in drawn by thirty-five horses, each with a representing the number of States in the Union. Another bore a flag representing the remarkable equestrian feat of a person riding two horses running in opposite directions, one side of the lider being in the costume of a Briga iier General, the other being adorned with tho significant Butternut—a somewhat pointed "hit," consi lering that Keosauqua is the residence of tho Tuttle. A TERPIISI.B DEATH.— During the terri ble conlhigration at Cohoea, N. Y., one of the work-women —Kate Donnelly—jjmped from a window, but her skirts caught in window-sill, and in this position she was burned to death. The cries of the poor girl were agonizing in the extreme, but she was beyond the reach of succor. A man went to her aid upon a ladder, and succeeded in reach ing up to her, and petting hold of her, but her skirts was so firmly fastened that he was unable to pull her dowD and was finally forced by the flames to leave her. Thus she hung and burned to death, in the presence of thousands of horrified spectators. Her remains, charred and blackened, were subsequently recovered. jpgyTo war, the Democratic party opposes peace. To conquer the enemy, Democracy would cease fighting. This would have a great moral effect upon the rebels. If the rebels raise fifty thousand recruits, the peace Democracy would checkmate them by dis banding a hundred thousand of our veteran troops. In this way the war would soon be at an end and peace would be attained at any price the rebels might choose to fix. fW Tf posterity condemn me, it will be because I did not hang John C.

The horses turned in to be used as cavalry and artillery. The government has 8,000 fresh horses on band at present. The crops in Canada are said to be first rate this year. The crops in Great Britain, France, &c., are better than the average. This will somewhat influence our prices. tLfcimiiimiif! GLORIOUS UNION VICTORY MAINE.
