They dure not endorse the slan ders, at homo, which their scullions got up and sent thousands of miles away fur the suldicrs to read, while Democrat ic papers were shut out of the army It is a cutting rebuke, and the soldiers can't help feeling ashamed at how they have been duped into the belief that tho Democrats were disloyal, when the fact is, and history will so record it, that had it not been for the Democratio party of the North, Lincoln and his cabinet would now'be in Richmond prison, Jeff.

Let us ask every patriotic man, therefore, to come forward and sustain the Democracy. Tbey are always tree to the Union. Returning 8ene In Bepnbll v ' canst The Republican candidates, now that votes are wanted, have agreed among themselves not to call Democrats by the name of butternuts, copperheads, or trai ton), until after the election at least. The Advocate, fearing that our.sog gestion for Democrats not to deal with meu who use these insulting epithets, may work injury to the Republican cause, comes out and notifies its-readers of our suggestion.

We are glad to know that some of the strongest Administration men look gloomily at the manuer in which the bta'e election was managed. No man who bat any regard for the rights of States can make any defense or apolo gy for it. Let those rejoice in sue eess who can rejoice over an election supervised at Washington. We have various authentic' accounts of the' sup pressionof votes In different places, but we shall try to avoid any statement not authenticated. The plain tin in is, the people of tins state were uiKirancised and deprived of the right to vote accord ing to the Constitution and laws of the State. .The lesson taught, is orntoons. What are we to expect nextl is It the inquiry. Tbis-is uo election, is the re mark' jf men who. have always stood, firmly by. the Union. Tb history of the election of yester day closes out all prcteusions or the Ad ministration party in this State to a union with the Democracy of the North. We shall now be dono with that absurdity- There was no vote in Owen county of consequence. The military were at the polls. Too people were intimidated by the presence of arms. At Newcastle, before breakfast, seven votes were cast for Wickliffe. ' After that tbe Democratio ticket was suppress ed entirely. At Bardstpwn, Lieutenant Colonel Butler, of Indiana, suppressed the entire vote for Wicklifie and other Democrats, i Louisville Democrat Kentucky Election From . the election returns published In the Louisville Democrat, we take the following.

Election or a Deniocralie Con grciiBniiiii in Nissouii-niilitary Violence at llic rolls. The St. Louis Republican of the 7th, states that tbe special election in the Third Congressional District of that Slate, for a member of Cougress to fill the vacancy occasioned by tho death of Noell, has resulted in the election of John G. Scott. Mr, Scott 's a conser vative man, and will co-operate with the Democratic side of tho House. The Republican, in noticing his election, says: In Madison county, the vote was as follows: Scott, 815; Lindsay, 144; Bo gy. 6- Washington county Scott's ' rasjori- ty over Lindsay, 238. We bear that at all military Btatlons they took the field for Lindsay, and fought much better for him at tbe polls than they would have done undor him against an armed cnomy. They took possession, in some instances, of the polls and prevented loyal citizens from votinir. and voted themselves, though refusing to tako the oath, which would have made them guilty of perjury. Scott and Gape Girardeau counties, under this in fluence, piled op a majority for Lindsay of four hundred and fifty or five hundred votes. Ironton, Arcadia, and there bouts, in iron county, gave Lindsuy some two hundred and seventy majority, because cveu hospital subjects were turn ed out to vote tor him, while Scott's friends were deterred from voting. Hut the country will neutralize or ereatly ro- dace this majority. The Main Objection" to Vallan- . -diglinni. Tho objeotlon that is now specially urged to Yallandighara by editors who put themselves forward as lenders in the Republican party is, that he wants a cessation of hostilities that he thinks enough blood bat been spilled, and that efforts, by negotiation and other peaceful agencies should be made to re store the Union. This desire on the part of Vullundigham is held up as an enormous crime? What did President Lincoln say in his Iuangnrul address? This is 'What lie said: '.'Suppose yoo'eoto Wr. wu cannot fight always, and when, after ranch loss on both sides, and' no gain on either, yon cease fighting, Thf. old identical, questions as to terms of. intercourse are again upon you." If this statement Is true, and no one bnt a knave or a fool will deny it, then no matter how much longer tbe War shall be continued, 'the old identical questions as to terms of intercourse are again upon, as you." In view of this fact, the sooner we can get a dispassionate consideration of the "questions as to terms of Intercourse'' tbe better for" humanity,' the 'better for ths nation and the--better for tbe Gov ernment. - The: President did not think, and Valla'ndigham does not thiuk, that the "questions as totems of intercourse" could or would be considered until there was a cessation of fighting.

Here is, indeed, just such a questiou, oue, second only in importance to that of public liberty. Tbe Union pf the States is worth the whole world to tbe American people, but liberty is tbe soul of a people ; and "what shall it profit us to gain the whole world and lose out own soul." Tbe Constitution made the Union, and when the war beean. it was tiro. claimed to be for the supremacy of the Constitution and laws, and whatever difference of opinion there may have been eveu then as to the mode of securing it, every patriotio . citizen of tho United States knew what the laws ar.d the Con stitution were. . But. what do w see today? The opinion and will, from hour to hour, of the president and such a President I -is solemnly and officially proclaimed sa perior to the Constitution and laws, even in the States, wholly loyal ; so that, up on the present policy of the Administra tion and it party, declared unchanged, tbe South is to be forced to the will and opiuion of Abraham Lincoln, instead of the written fundamental statue and com mon law. And, if we ourselves scorn to yield upon our constitutional rights and liberties to this monstrous demand, does any honorable man any sane man ask or expect the 8tates and people of the South to surrender so long as a man survives to strike a blow or a wo man to strengthen bis bean or nerve bis arm ? Upon such a policy this war must and will be terminable." So many; square inilis may be overrun, so much soil may be conquered, but the heart of the peo pie never. How, then, stand tbe chang es of the Union, measured by tho two different policies of the Abolition and Democratio parties ? The party of tho Administration do- clares that the States and people of the (south shall tie forced to lay down their arms and submit. What theu? Con fiscation of all property, emancipation of all .slaves, aud tbe execution of all who, directly and indirectly, have taken part in the rebellion, namely, nine-lentli.s of tbe whole population, for a general amnesty bus never, as yet, been as much as suggested by either Congress or tho Executive, and unconstitutional submis sion is now the least which is demand ed. More than this as to any Slate which may first submit or becouquered. Con-, icription of every male person, white or black, between twenty and forty-five, for the conquest of the States still iu arms. Nor is this the worst, for, inasmuch as oil slaves and free negroes South are considered loyal, and nearly all white men and women disloyal, aud therefore as having forfeited all rights, the negroes, hereafter free, are to be treated as al most the only persons entitled to -the several rights and privileges of citizen- ship, and especially the very noldiers to garrison the South; and add to all this ("suppression of the freedom of speech and Oi the writ of habeas corpus, mut'Ua.1 law, arbitrary arrests, imprisonments, banishments, interference with elections, test oaths, appropriation of privute hous es, and every other kind of oppression,' outrage and despotism, which for two years have been repeatedly practiced even in States never in insurrection, but always loyal to the Union This is the entertainment to which, under tbe present policy of the Adminis tration, dictated by the radicals who control it, the States and people of the South are invited. And repeatedly the question was put to. me when among them: vlf the citizens of the Mates still adhering to the Uuiou -are continually arrested, -imprisoned, banished, or other wise outraged, merely because of their political opinion, or for censure and criticism of the men In "IOU in nower.

X STARTLING WORK. jot Cffi conciliation, not force; and to whom uiii Democratic statesmen, untainted with abolitionism, and in. whose wisdom and integrity tbe people of all sections, the Souih as well as tbe North and West have confidence, can the work be secure ly committed? Can they accomplish ft who came wilh acts and proclamations of abolition, conBscntion, conscription and death men who are for no peace or Union till slavery Is abolished ? Be lieve, the success of the Democratic ticket, this full, in Ohio, will do more, not only for Constitutional liberty, but for the Union, than. such men could ac complish in n hundred years. I need not' repeat my often declared conviction which time has always vindi cated, that the South cannot be conquer ed by force of arms; but grunting for argument's sake,- the effectual check and waning proportions of the rebellion, ns proclaimed now again for the hundredth time, by the organs of the Administra tion, and that by the second Monday in January next, all tho armies of the Con foderatia will have been captured or dis persed, and their remaining five hundred thousand square miles of territory over run and occupied, then tho hour for the pacihcalion of the South and concilia tion of her people will have arrived, which party will most readily be bark ened to by thein? Who as Governor of Ohio, will be Iho niost efficient agent, in that great and nrduous task? Your candidate, committed wholly to the res toration of the Union as it was, or the enndiduto of the Administration, pledgr ed to a policy fall, upon the oue hand, of continued exasperation and hate,' and on the oilier, of insurrection and revenge?

The people, relying 011 bis pltdge, elected him. Many poor men went into the war believing that the Judge ana others would perform ihei pledges and support their children while they were fighting our battles The Judge has uow been in office nearly two years, and nnder his pledge owes the soldiers' families about nix hundred dol lars.

But the Judge, delighted with the mag nificence of bis mansion, turns a deaf ear to their appeal, 'and with one foot upon his pledge aud the other on bis honor, bids defianee -to their tears and entrea ties. If a man will disregard so sacred a pledge, what pledge would he consid er of any binding forcel He might give three hundred dollars a year, ac cording to his promise, and still have left him twelve hundred dollars a year, while tbe poor private soldier only gets one hundred and fifty Six dollars a year. .1 , - A RETRENCHED UhrichsViileMug. 7, '63.

In last week's Advocate there appear ed an editorial article beaded "Mob Law on Stone Creek," which abounds in falsehood and exaggeration, aud which I desire to refute. The facts are as fol low's: Some time ago on a certain Sabbath the pastor of the Ev. Lnth. Church, (Laughson) on Stone Creek, near Phil ipsburg, made his farewell address to the congregation ; but this " Farewell Ad dress" was nothing but a political speech, and when tbe meeting was over it was said by most of the members that there after there should be no political ser mons preached in that meeting house ; for tbe simple reason that that was not the purpose for which it was erected. That was settled. Now, on Sabbath, Aug. 2, last, there came a Mr. Stelling, of New- Philadel phia, nnder tbe pretence of delivering a funeral sermon over the remains of Geo. nout, one of the "fallen brave." Well, all right. Although Mr. Stelline was known to be a rampant, fanatical Abo litionist, there was nothing said against this, because no one ever suspected that ne would use tbe pulpit for an Abolition harangue over a dead soldier. Mr. Stelling is admired and appreciated as a preacher of the gospel, bnt not as a po litical stumper. He did not get half through with bis sermon, before he com ojenced bis Abolitionism, and declared that "freedom and slavery could uot ex ist together;" and had a good deal to say about peacemakers, 4c, &c. If Mr. Stelling, "or nny other man," can call such an one a "funeral sermon," or preaeuiiig" th? jospel, we are.yery sorry nai n? are so fur behind the times, aim are ignorant of the NEW gospel. If that was preaching tho gospel, then tbe Tus carawas Advocate is certainly a very religious paper. It was after the sermon was over that one of the trustees of the meeting bouse told him (Stelling) that if be wanted to make public speeches or bold political meetings he should go out of doors, and that he bad no right to make political speeches iu that mealing honse, because it was not built for such purposes. That was all. "Nobody's hurt," and nobody was iu danger, us no harm was intended. J Now the Advocate says they ought to j ha arrested. What for?

Dkm The undersigned citizens of Jefferson Township have seen with surprise and mortification, a statement written and published in tbe Tus-nra was Advocate lust week, by 0110 Porter Wilson, charging, among other things, that on last Sunday a week Rev. Mr. Stelling would have been mobbed while preaching a funeral sermon if it bad not been for Union men and charging that members of the church cursed uud swore like mad men at him, and that meu aud children wore butternut emblems to sig nify they were trailers. We pronounce said statement a mali cious slander and a base falsehood on the people of Jefferson Township, and declure that every man, woman uud child iu said township is more loyal, and has done more to put down the rebellion than this iufumous slanderer.

Butternut emblems did not offend the Abolitionists until lately, when they found out that John Brown was hung on a Butternut gallows ; since that their wrath is as unbounded as their mean ness. I wish Democrats would not wear butternut or copperhead emblems, be cause no good results from it, and the Abolitionists make it the text for end less fabrications. Some of them ore mean enough to try to make people be lieve that they are worn as an expres sion of sympathy with the rebellion. A Demoobat. - From tlio Ohio Statesmaa. Mob Violence. Tho Mass Meeting correspondent of the Ciui-innati Commercial, in bis ro port of the Mount Gilcad meeting, writes as follows : "Bad Conddot op Union Men The best of causes may have imprudent ad vocates, who, against the advice of the judicious, may conduct themselves im properly, toward their opponents. We have been grieved to see such conduct at several of the Union meetings we have attended recently ; and, in the hope of checking ita incease, we feel it to bo our duty to speak of it here. It is tbe intolerance of a certain class of Union men toward their opponents, which man ifests itself by assaulting every man who halloos for Vallandigham, not only on the ground wbero a Uuion meeting is being held, but in the public streets where all have equal rights. Until war shnll be declared in the North and we think disloyal persons can be managed here without that no man has a right to knock another down for the expres sion of his opinion. It is a violation of law, whictf, if Allowed to Increase, as it seems to be doing, will end in anarchy and bloodshed: worse than war. It is the spirit of the mob, and not of law abiding, good Union citizens. It caus ed sad forebodings to see this kind of conduct In Delaware and ib Mt. Gilead ; and more shocking still was it, in the latter place, after one bad been knock ed down, to see his companion fleeing for his life, with a crowd of a score or two pursuing and picking np bricks and stones to hurl at him, as though be were .a wild beast. Such conduct irthc legit - iraate fruit of the advice givenV'wa ara sorry to say, by one of the Union - speak ers recently, that when men we re'seen ' wearing butternut emblems, Unio o men ' should quietly approach them and fear ' them from their fastenings. We coalcK hardly believe onr ears when we hesidr"1 it, fcr it is so utterly at variance with -' the observance of law and order, and so in keeping with what they have alwaya condemned in the opposition. We do not believe he thought seriously of wht he -was saying. tEX While Democrats have a perfect right " to wear those emblems, I do wish that our friends would not do so, but adhere to the old Jackson emblem. Bnt the Abolition party is to blame for the whole of it. Never did any Democrat wear such emblems until the Abolition press applied the name "Butternut" and "Cop perhead" to the Democratic, party, its ticket and meetings; andsnch emblems are worn only to designate membership in tbe Democratic partv : hut nna. ih Abolitionists are endeavoring to- make ' people believe that those emblems, are ' worn by Democrats to show a sympathy with the rebellion. They well know when they make such, charges that they are fiilse. But because no irood can r.- sult from wearing them, I hope our friends will avoid doing so. Bnt it should be remembered that tho leaden of the so-called "Union" party, in refer encoto those emblems as well a many other things, show a disposition' to ex-' ercise a terrible desnoiin nhtca lan '' their equals, to which uone but tbe mean est mental slaves can submit. They mast not for a moment indulge the idea that while they are endeavoring to free'fonr million of negroes from physical slavery, they may place twenty million of white people into the most abject mental slave ry.

Washington, Angnst 9 Governor Seymour, under date or Albany, August 3d, writes to the President with respect to the draft in New York and Brooklyn. He condemns tbe course of the Provost Marshal in commencing the draft with out consultation with city or State offl cjrs, at a time when the militia were ab sent at the seat of war, and while there were not even soldiers enough to man the fortifications in the harbor. Tho Governor complains of unfairness in the enrollment, and thinks in this lot. tcry for human life, as he terms it, there should be strict impartiality. In the ru ral ilistric s the draft has been executed with justice, and the conscripts have ac cepted their fate without a murmur, aud sometimes joyfully. In the districts of New York, however, wilh a population much less, the number to be drafted in some cases doubled that for the former. Tho attack on the enrolling officers, which subsequently grew into the most destructive riot in tbe history of the country, he pronounces unjustifiable. Speaking further of the riots in New York, he says: Disregard for law and d 'srospect for judicial tribunals produced their natural results of robbery and ar son accompanied by murdorous outrages on a helpless race, and for a time the ' very existence of the commercial metro p jlis of our country was threatened. It is gratifying that the citizens of New York were able, without material aid from the State or nation, to pat down this dangerous insurrection. For a time the nation had not the means to protect its own arscuals and navy yard. One thousand men could have seized them all and then used the armaments for the destruction of the shipping and the city itself, to say nothing of the vessels which were at that time engaged in burning our merchant ships almost within sight of our coast. The Governor also complains that no credit has been given to the city for the . numoeror volunteers sent and tbe noble exertion ot tbe militia in times of peril.' Ho therefore asks for tbe suspension, at present, of the draft until its constitution slit y is tested. The President in reply, nnder date of &ugut 1, says he cannot suspend the draft in New York, because time is too important. He admtis the disparity of the quotas in the different sections, and accounts ior it by the ract that so many more persons fit for soldiers are in the city than iu the country, wbo have too recently arrived from Europe to be in cluded in the census of 1860. Still be would not consider that reason sufficient. He would direct the draft to proceed, desiring o:ily an average quota of all the districts. After this drawing, the city districts shall be carefully re-enrolled-and the Governor's agents might witness every step of the process. Due credit will be given for all volunteers. The Preside nt would not object to abide by the decision of tho Supreme Court. He would be willing to facilitate it, but could not consent to lose tbe time.
