S25 CASH IN HAND IT Every body that volunteers, and don't wait to be drafted are paid $25 down be sides the 340 bousty which they get when they go into the camp. Drafted men don't get any- bounty. A word to the wise is eufficienti uThe Union as it was The Con- oWlrtJOlr m It 18 ' BAYONETS FOR REBELS AND BALLOTS FOR ABOLITIONISTS." We desire to say a few words on the eubject of raising volunteers, viewed in its political aspect. Our opinion as to the policy and necessity for maintaining the organization of the Democratic party during the War, not only has not changed but has been strengthened by the current e rents. However much we as Democrats may be opposed to the policy which is attempt ed t be inaugurated in the conduct of the War, no one- hesitates or doubts for a mo ment, but that the first duty of all good citizens is to their government and their country to rally around a common stand ard and unite in a vigorous and determin ed effort to crush out this rebellion. Resolved, That while we will, as heretofore, discourage all mere factious opposition to the administration, and will continue to giv,e our earnest support to all proper measures to put down the rebellion. and wilT make all the allowances that the necessities of the times require of good citizens, we protest against all violation of tho Constitution. The above resolution, taken from the Democratic platform adopted at Columbus, on the 4th of J uly last, is endorsed fully and heartily by every true democrat. Any one refusing to endorse it is a traitor to his country and false to the party which adopted it. Mr. Wendell Phillips made a speech in Boston, and in the course of his remarks denounced the President and counselled his hearers in most emphatic terms to re fuse their aid in the suppression of the rebellion until the War policy was changed. Democrats are not patriots of that stripe or complection. They have been taught that their first duty is to their country. The doctrine of the Democratic party is, that it is their first duty to crush out all rebellion against the Government, and their next duty is to place those in power who will conduct the affairs of the Gov eminent upon the basis of the Constitu tion as it is in all its parte, without any exception. This is the true doctrine of the Demo cratic party, and this doctrine is to be carried out by the bayonet and the ballot " bayonets for rebels and ballots for aboli tionists." Politicians and patriots (?) of the Wendell Phillips school do not go to War, because the policy does not suit them. All true patriots- will shoulder their muskets and go forth to do battle in defense of their Government without enquiring anything about policy, leaving the people at home to take care of that The Democrat when he pulls the trigger, pulls it in defense of the Constitution and the Union, without enquiring the motive ef any other soldier. The Demo crat is actuated by patriotism himself, and if stay of his fellow soldiers are fighting for a "policy" alone, he is not responsi ble. All differences of opinion as to the object and probable result of the War, while the War lasts, must be made sub servient to its vigorous prosecution. The rebellion most first be crushed out and questions of policy in the mean time be left to take care of themselves. Monroe County has sent a thousand patriotic men into the field, a large ma jority of whom are Democrats fighting from patriotism and not for a policy. They are sow outnumbered by the enemy and the citizens of Monroe are appealed to, to go to their rescue. That they will do it and do it promptly we can not doubt. Monroe County must send four or five hundred earnest and brave men, as her proportion, to fill up our valiant ranks tunned out by the casualties of War. Patriotic men of Monroe! Your fathers. brothers and sons call you to fill up the shattered ranks at once. Our glorious sires of old left the olousrh in the ground, dropped their sickles in the field, and ao most their children now. Then make one more effort, that, in the language of Gen. McClellan, " our national Constitution shall prevail, and that the Union, whioh alone oan insure internal peace and external security to each State must sad snail be preserved. DRAFTING. Gov. Tod has issued an order to the County Auditors directing the enrollment of the Militia preparatory to drafting This will be a new feature in the War not anticipated by those persons who said, " We could whip the rebels before breakfast;" but we anticipate no danger of drafting in Monroe. Drafted men aae not paid as much, and generally are looked upon as a olass of soldiers who are not equal to Volunteers. For this reason we think that no drafted men will go from Monroe. A vigorous effort will soon raise our proportion of men, sad this will be put forth as soon as our citizens see the necessity for it. tsr particulIr NOTICE !- The following gentlemen have been commissioned to raise a company: Henry Okey, Captain; Win. Myers, 1st Lieutenant; John C. Henthorn, 2nd Lieut. Fall in boys and fill up the Company before the Assessor gets around. You can fill up the Company in ten days if you will just conclude to go now.

Come up to the meeting without fail. A LIBERAL DONATION. A gentleman in this County who belongs to the Union party, and who is worth only about fifteen thousand dollars, subscribed one thousand mills bounty money for our volunteers. THE LAST DOLLAR. Now is "the time and the opportunity for men who have money, to " dough it up ' to assist in raising volunteers. We have heard men say they would give the last dollar. Now is the time! Sg. At a meeting of the Military Com mittee held Tuesday, July 29th, it was resolved to raise $ 5000 by subscription with which to pay an additional bounty of $25 to each volunteer enlisting in the two companies now being raised in this county. The funds were apportioned among the townships as follows: Adams $200, Benton 150, Bethel 150, Center 700, Franklin 300, Green 200, Jackson 150, Malaga 500, Ohio 350, Perry 200, Salem 350, Seneca 300, Summit 300, Sunsbury 500, Switzerland 250, Wash ington 300, Wayne 100.

Juki 22, 162. The several county committees met pur suant to adjournment, at the Court House in Marietta, on Tuesday evening, July 22, 1862, and were called to order by Judge Wm. R. Putnam, the Chairman; Geo. W. Cooper, of Meigs was appointed Assistant secretary. The convention then proceeded to the selection ot omcers tor the 92d Regiment, witn too iollowmg result : Colonel Nelson H. Van Vorhes, of Athens county. Lieut. Colonel Benj. D. Fearing, of Harmar. Major Dioclesian H. Smith, of Meigs connty. Adjutant Douglas Putnam, Jr., of Harmar. Quartermaster Wm. Priestly, of Noble county. Surgeon Dr. James Smith, of Monroe county. Assist. Surgeon Dr. G. S.

We are not acquainted with all of the above named officers, but presume they ere good men as they are all Republicans. A GLANCE AT THE NEWS. Gen. Porter's fleet has reached Hamp ton Roads. There is much conjecture as to what this fleet is intended for. Some think it is for the purpose of reducing Fort Darling. Gen. Pope's army has advanced beyond Warrenton, and the men are said to be in fine spirits. Gen. Hatch is scouring the whole coun try between the enemy's usee and the city of Washington. There was a tremendous war meeting in Cincinnati on Friday. Gen. Lew Wal lace, Gov-Morton and others addressed the meeting. A move of some kind is hourly expect ed on the Peninsula. McClellan has given orders to his army to be ready at a mo meat's notice. It is suspected that Jack. son will attack either McClellan or Pope. ben. cutler has declared that no mer chandise, whether cotton or sugar, will be confiscated by United States authority. Several Ohio regiments are amongst the reinlorcements recently sent to lien. McClellan. ea. The 4th, Sth, 62d and 67th Ohio are reported at Harrison s Landing and in good condition. ttag There was no publio effort necessary to recruit an army of tax-gatherers from Republican ranks under the new law. They all volunteered without urging. Statesman. gu Wendell Phillips, the great leader of the present Union-with-Abolitionists Party, has taken the stump against raising the 300,000 volunteers called for. EX-SENATOR GEORGE E. PUGH MAKES A WAR SPEECH. From the Dayton Empire, July 29th WAR MEETING LAST NIGHT. Quite a large crowd assembled in front of the Court-House last night, to hear the speeches of Hon. Geo. E. Pugh and Col. Anderson. The former gentleman, in the course of his remarks, declared that " at the first whisper of compromise from our Southern brethren, he was for a settle ment of this difficulty and forgetting the past. He said further that "he belonged to the old Democratic party. He was a party man. Parties were essential to pub lic liberty. Politics and the war must be separated. We had a right to criticise the acts of the Administration and would do it freely. We mast watch its conduct olosely and if the President does not do right, we must and would at the end of his term put in another man. The Pres ident must himself obey the constitution and laws, and respect the rights of the citizen. The Democratic party demanded this and meant to have it. The Presi dent would be held to a strict responsibil ity for all violations of law, constitution and right. The liberties of the people and the reserved rights of the States must be respected." He said further that "the Democratic party was for the Union, and always had been, and was now for its restoration, and you know," he added "when the Democratic party says a thing it means it." He announced that he was himself for the Constitution as it is and the Union as it was. Mr. P. paid a handsome compliment to Col. Anderson and advocated volunteer ing. We regret that all the war speeches made, do not more resemble the one de livered by Pugh last evening. From Warrenton. Warrenton, Va., July 30. Col. Lloyd, of the 6th Ohio cavalry, commanding at Lnray, yesterday, in pursuance of Gen. Pope s order, arrested all the male inhab itants of the town and lodged them in the Court House, preparatory to administering the oath of allegiance. This course is rendeajd imperatively necessary from the fact that several left their homes, it is supposed to join the fuerrillas, who infest the west side of the outh Fork, and in one instance captured the river pickets. A prominent secession farmer and his son, residing near Little Washington, left here yesterday for the mountains, taking horses, equipments and arms. Last night our pickets fired ou two guerrillas in that vicinity, supposed to be the farmer and son. All was quiet at Culpepper at last advi ces. THE BATTLE AT MOOR'S MILLS. Mexico, Mo., July 30. From an officer just in from the field, I get the following reliable acoount of the fight at Moore. s Mills, twelve miles east of Fulton on Monday afternoon: Our force under Col. Guitar was about seven hundred. The rebel force was between eight and nine hundred. Our loss was ten killed and thirty wounded. The rebels left fifty-two dead on the field, and had about one hun dred wounded. The fight lasted about three hours, when the rebels fled in great confusion. Porter went east and Cobb went west. The Policy of the Adininistra- twn in Reference to Slavery. The Washington correspondent of the New York Evening Post of the 23rd writes as follows in reference to the poli cy of the Administration on slavery : "A CABINET COUNCIL. "A very long Cabinet meeting was held yesterday upn the subject, and there was an encouraging degree of unanimity. There is some tenderness toward the border slave States even on the question of slavery, but none whatever toward the Gnlf and Atlantic slave Statas. I hazard the opinion that the policy of the Gov ernment will be to totally overthrow sla very in the cotton and sugar-growing States by every method in its power. It will not stick at any obstacles, being con vinced that the only hope of making those States obedient is to entirely de stroy slavery in them. Total abolitiof in the States of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Tex as is resolved upon, or I am grossly mis informed. There will be no proclama tion upon the subject, but it is none the less the fixed policy of the Government. Mr. Lincoln has a prejudice against anti slavery proclamations, and will quietly inform his Generals of his purposes, and will make no flourish in the matter nor permit them to make any. With slavery abolished in the Gulf apd Atlantic States, it will take care of itself elsewhere will gradually expire." THE NEW POSTAGE STAMPS. Washiwoton, July 30. The Postmaster-General and the Commissioners of In ternal Revenue to-day approved of the specimens for the postage stamp currency, which will be for five, ten, twenty-five and utty cents, lhe designs embrace the present five and ten cent postage stamps, fully arranged in such a way that they cannot be separated and used for postage. X hey will Dear on their lace the Iollow mg inscription: " Postage stamps fur nished by the Assistant Treasurer and designated deDositaries of the United States; receivable for postage stamps at any rost-omce. en. Says Prentice: Although the Sec essionists and Abolitionists seem to pull in different directions, their tails, like those of Sampson's foxes, are joined with fire bands to wrap the country in flames. A Correspondent of the Wheeling Intelligencer says that a sister of "Stone wall" Jackson, who lives in Beverly, Va., is a staunch Union woman. She devotes her time to the sick and wounded. mwT" Recruiting is reported as very brisk in the East, and growing daily more en thusiastic. Four new regiments are about ready to move from Maine. ngjo. Those who expect great things from the arming of negroes will probably have a chance before long to see how it will work. The War Department has not only not discharged Hunter's black brigade, bnt it has authorized Jim Lane to raise one in Kansas. PITTSBURH FEMALE COLLEGE: We copy the following notice of this excellent institution from the Pittsburgh Gazette, of the 3d inst: The Seventh Annual Catalogue of the Pittsburgh Female College has just beeu laid upon our table by the President, Rev. I. C. Pershing. We confess that we have examined the contents with a degree of satisfaction amounting almost to pride, as we have marked the fact that we have in our midst one of the most vigorous, well managed and successful institutions in the land. We question much whether one in ten, even of our citizens, has any real con ception of the status of the college has reached, or the grand and glorious work it is to-day accomplishing. The recent commencement, at which nineteen young ladies received their degrees, gave evidence not only of woman's capabilities but also of the superior facilities afforded by the college for their developement. The en tire commencement was a brilliant success and reflected the highest honor on all concerned. As an evidence of the prosperity of the college we need but state the fact that the attendance the past year reached the large number of two hundred and forty-eight, gathered from nine States. In order to accommodate the constantly increasing number of pupils, an addition has been made to the Faculty, which now numbers fifteen. Most of the old teachers remain. Among the new ones are Miss Martha C. Dole, a lady of large experience, and for some time a teacher in the celebrated school at Mount Holyoke, Mass; and Miss Fannie A. Fish, who has earned such an enviable reputation in our community. The ut most care is taken in the selection of tea chers, and the present Faculty will com pare favorably with any in the country. We are pleased to learn from President Pershing that an effort is now making to put up an addition to the building. The design is to add forty feet to the Chapel, divide the second story into a Library and Reading-room, and also a Hall for the Browning Association, and devote the en tired third story to the purposes of an Art Gallery and Cabinet. The design is a noble one, and we trust it will be carried out. The next term will commence ou Tues day, September 2d. We need hardly urge upon our readers to patronize the College. If fine buildings, thorough equipment, a very large and able Faculty, and earnest devotion to the work of christian education, can give claims to patronage, then has the college claims which are second to none. We advise our readers to send for a cata logue. ng& Fulton applied steam to the great practical uses of the age; Morse has brought Galvanism to be the daily servant of mil lions of men. Newton unravelled the mazes of the stars and made their mo tions the mariners guide on the trackless ocean. What these men have done in their departments, Dr. Ayer does in medi cine. He turns the great discoveries iu Science and Physics to use in the cure of disease, and makes the occult disoveries of the great chemists available for the wants of every day life. His medicines for the low prices at which they are sold, bring within the reach of every man the best wisdom and the best skill of modern times. " Wilminqton Del. "Statesman. SB m .j Quietly, citizens of Marietta, isn't "a pound of prevention worth a pound of cure?" Well, then wouldn't it be well to attach 100 men to 100 guns, with a liberal supply of powder and balls have .1 ix. : a- ' ' j . l - - . . j- inem nuawaj men, ana me guns ass ciplined," that they may be "ready for any emergency?" What d'ye say? Ma rietta Register. We will answer. No necessity exist? for any such thing. If the abolitionist think that the cup of bitterness cannot be filled, by abuse of Democrats, and com mence arming organized "minute men" for the purpose of putting down Demo crats at the coming election, or during the present political campaign we think that they will find use for their men, before they see every Democrat on his knees asking quarter. Quietly, then Democrats act, until you see your malignant neigh bors arming "minute men, then do like wise. There is no joke in this matter Abolition'sts are I ke secessionists, and when the rebellion commeaced in the South it was by "quietly" arming "min ute men," to be "ready for any emergen cy." This is not a hint, but a plain state ment by one who knows, what he writes. Marietta Republican. tSF Mobbing wes approved by the Re publicans in this quarter, during last year many of them, even Reverends, advoc ted it. Now, when Sambo is mobbed, how their rightoous souls are vexed, and how indignant they are? Mobbing is all wrong now, when the color Defiance (O.) Democrat. is changed! A seditious Democrat is a man who is in favor of the Constitution, the Union, and the enforcement of the laws. A patri otic Republican is one who is in favor of breaking down the Constitution; and ruin ing the country to set the niggers firee. A nice set of fellows to talk about treason, ain't they? The Cincinnati Commercial, 2lBt inst., contains the following : u Capt. Lewis E. Sisson, Monroe coun ty, O., Capt. Henry Hoblitzell, jr., Wood oounty, Va.; 1st Lient. Wm. W. Scott, and 2nd Lieut. W. F. Fisher, Washing ton county, O., have resigned their com missions in the 77th regiment, O. V. I.. and will be transferred into a Virginia battery, Capt. Hoblitzell having permis sion to recruit the same. This battery will be raised in the counties of Wood, Pleasants and Marshall, of Va., and Washington and Monroe, of Ohio." The Ashland Union announces that the 102 Regiment, " is now full of oificf.rs! It is expected that they the officers will soon meet and elect the privates. As soon as this is done, the Regiment will be ready for the field, where they will, no doubt, do good service in battling for the Constitu tion as it is and the Union as it was." Gen. McClellan, in a letter to Gov. Washburne, of Maine, dated July 15, says: "New enlistments shoud be made to fill up old regiments rather than to raise new ones. I would prefer fifty thousand re cruits for my old regimentr to one hundred , 1 . ... luuuaauu men organized in new regi- I xnents. THE SOLDIER TO HIS MOTHER. BV THOMAS MACKELLAR.

The object of Judge Douglas's speeches, at that time, was to promptly rally the peo ple in response to that call, stimulated by the impression which he had that Washington was in danger. In the very i same speeches, however, from which the j paragraphs which the bogus Union party quote, Judge Douglas declared emphati cally ihit he would not make war himself nor would he encourage or tolerate it in others, on the institutions of any of the 'Southern States; his sole object and pur pose being to aid tho President to put down the rebellion and enforce the Fed- era! authority. Every one w ho heard Judge Douglas speak here, will remem ber how particular he was to disclaim any intention to make war upon any State or the institutions thereof. The man must be a fool who believes that Judge Dong las, if living, would have tolerated or sanctioned the infamous legislation of the late session of Congress.

Ohio Statesman. BQrMr. G. P. Briefer, Editress of Newark (O.) Times, writes in her paper of January 29, 1859, as follows : We know that Dr. Rohack's Scandina vian Remedies are all they claim to be. The Dr. presented us with a few bottles of his Scandinavian Blood Purifier and boxes of his Blood Pills last summer, which put new life into us. They invigo rate, strengthen, and leave the system in a bettor condition than stimulants usually do, and have no depressing effect. We feel safe in recommending the Blood Purifier to all suffering from debility, be the cause what it may, the Pills hare this peculiarity, they are powerfully active, and at the same time leave patient stronger and in an improved condition, different from moat drastic remedies. Try them with the Blood Purifier and you will feel like many who have been relieved, and willing to add your testimony to their efficacy. See advertisement. THE UNION FOREVER.
