The citizens of this, villngo and vicinity,
ladies included, of course, nro especially
invited to attend a Democratic Mealing,
this evening, (Wednesday) nt tlio Conrt
House, which will lo addressed by
Hon. T. B. CHURCH,
J. T. HOLMES, Esq.,
L. PATTERSON, Esq.
.Nono hhould fail to liear these distin
guished spoakers to-night. Kill up thu
house- to its utmost capacity.
Tub abolition meeting, on Monday
evening, at tho Couit-llouse, in his vil
lage, was f so little significance, that tlio
Union, issued tho next day, did not
luako tho slightest allusion to it. Tho
speaker, having been specially invited as
the mnslor-spiril and mouthpiece of tho
occasion, will not probably feel very good
nalured in view of his cool reception and
tho spiritlovs character of tho few assem
bled for lh harangue. Hon. V. W. Kel
logg, tho sjx'nker, during uti hour
and a half, uttered more unblushing false
hoods and nonsense, nnd displayed more
loinbasiic eloquence and hypocrisy than
wo ever listened to before, in a given lime.
Ho irreverently declared that the conse
quences resulting from tho election of Gen.
McClellart to tho presidency would bo far
moro terrible and deplorable to tho hu
man race than the fall of Adam. Could
fanaticism go further! Many other cmzy,
foolish and wicked sentiments, too prepos
terous and absurd to notice, were uttered
by this modern dUunionist.
An Irishman b'ing a-,kod by his mus
ter if ho had counted nil tho pigs, replied
tbat had. counted ' iliom nil but oie
litely little, porker, which. run abul so
that h could not count it.
' Tiik accident on tho if. Mil
near Muir, on TliursJ.vltsl,Jjj-3 not'f
so seiious a nature as lirst reported. Tho
engineer is tho only persou fatally injured
as we learn from tho employes of tho
road, though tho Criuau a-ry seri
ously scnldcd, but was living at last intelligence-
and faint hopes are entertained of
bis recovery. This is tho sccoud accident
of a serious nature that Las occurred on
tho road ono soma four years ago, near
Rirminchani, by a collision, by which a
Maif Agent was killed.
Tho D. it M. Railway has been ex
ceedingly fortunato in regard , to serious
accidents tho management boing in
trusted to careful and meritorious officers.
In tho caso of Thursday no blamocan bo
reasonably attached to any one, as tho
accident doubtlessly occurred by a spread
of tho rails.
Who are Serfs?
A Serf in ono w hoso timo and scrvico
is not wholly his own, but belongs to an
other, or to tho government under which
ho lives. Tho following few items will
suggest to our laboring men how rapidly
tho expenses of tho war and our paper
money system are reducing thcin to tho
condition of moro serfs to tho government.
For every pound of tea the poor man
buys he pays twenty-five cents in gold
or sixty cents in paper duty to the gov
crr.mcnt. This is equal to ono-third of a
For every pound of sugar ho pays
twelve cents in paper; equal to an hour's
For every gallon of molasses ho pays
in paper twenty cents; equal to an hour
aud thrco quarter's work.
For every pound of cinnamon ho pays
seventy-fivo cents in paper; equal to ouo
half days work.
For every pound of pepper ho pays
fifty-fivo cents in paper; oqnal to ouc
third of a day's work.
Thus we might continuo tho list
through every article paying direct duty,
and provo that tho laboring man already
owes more than half his time as a serf,
to the government! Then wo could tako
up untaxed articles, and, tho other list al
so, and show how much tho laboring man
hns to pay for tho enhanced cost and prof
it, created by these taxes and paper cur
rency; in other words, how much -of his
timo ho owes as a serf, to individuals.
Tho result would bo just what ho finds
every Saturday night when his week's ex
penses aro paid, viz., that his money is all
gone, and his family, after all, poorly sup
ported. In other words ho hns not been
working for himself but fr his owners,,
his moro fortunato fellowmon and, the
government; he is a serf! IIo is not at
tached to tho soil it is true. Far better
for him if ho were. IIo may go from
place to place, but tho condition of serf
dom clings closer to him than to an Af
rican slave. There is no North Star in
his horizon to point him to tho land of
freedom. There aro no fanatics to raiso
a war iu'his behalf. Shrapnel.

" Wo aro asked fifty times a day, moro
or less, when we think tho war will end!
As wo have no' right to think, in tho' ab
sence of data to think upon, wo are some
limes at a loss for an answer. How
ever, for tho information of tho'so who aro
particularly, inquisitive and anxious upon
tho subjict, wo w ill rclato a dream that a
friend Af ours had on tho duration'of tho
war, which may throw somo light upon
tho subjcel.( , yf. t ', I
Ho drenmed , tjint ho awoke frotu j
sleep of fifty years, and found himself up
on the south bank of tho Rapidan. lie
saw, nt a littlo distance from tho spot
whero ho awoke, a Corporal, with seven
teen men and a wheelbarrow. Ho ap
proached and asked tho Corporal what
this littlo gathering meant.
"This.' rcplietl iho Corporal, is the
Army of Northern Virginia.'
"'Where aro tho Yankees ?' inquired
" They aro on the other side of tho
river,' replied the Corporal. They have
tho advantage of us in numbers and trans
portation, as they havo twenty-one men
and two wheelbarrows; but we expect to
gel the advantage of them in position,
will w hip thm, and then tho war will
end" i , .,1
It is asserted on good authority , that
at least two-thirds of tho population of
Atlanta came North instead of going
South, as was their privilege, under Gen.
Sherman's ordi-r. This, wo think, proves
conclusively, that thorn is a largo element
in tho South that are fr peacu. .

Messrs. Editors:. Having been a sub
scriber to your excellent paper for over
fifteen years, while I heartily approve, of
its opinions, I have a tight to grumblo a
little. ' ; ;'
in your last number you have a most
admirable article in its general cupo and
dosig'u, under tho head of 44 Union and
Peace." In speaking of tho position of
tho South, however, you say, 44 they do
uot desiro peace. without tho recognition
of their independence as a rival, antago
nistic, slavehplding government. In read
ing this, the inquiry at onco arose in my
mind, 44 JJow'Jo you know thisP Has
pence been offered to them 'on terms of
iimpli snh'mission to their constitutional
obligations, nt any timo within two years
past! Have thy not had every reason
to bcliavo that they could not have pence
unless they would allow tho North to dic
tato to them conditions in reference to
slavery among themselves! You may
say that you havo tho authority of tho
President of tho Confederacy for the
statement. Rut would you say that the
North do not desiro peace without the
abolition of slaver; in every Sovthern
State? You would havo precisely tho
same reason for making this statement.
I apprehend that tho people of both
sections desiro peace, and if they could
come together they would establish a
peace without infringing upon our na
tional inteqrity. Iho men now unfortu
nately in power stand bctwceit the North
and the South, and 2)rcvcnt - reconcilia
These aro two initios I should b' glad
to see discussed in your columns,' relating
to the dutv of Christians aud Christian
ministers, in tho present condition 'of our
national aflairs. '
It is assumed bv a majority 'of Chris
liana that this war is a judgenint of God
upon us for the sin. of slavery, instead of
boini; the natural result of our own wick
ed passions; and that God wilj riot ter
mit this war to ceno until tho great evil
is wiped out. I havo heard ininisters
preach and pray- this doctrine TiutnberKvss
times!" Now, I would like to know how
thesa good brolhfeir,'(goo'd, though ' mis-'
guid-id, I have no doubt they fcre.) lifUb
found out tho tv-itl and designs- of Hod.

They say that God has Viievwle.nt de

must ubmit to it in patieilco. I do not
doubt .that ho will, in somo way,' I know
notliow, bring good' out of theso enor

that evil! God,' make tho'Vrath of

times it has occurred to me,' L do not
