But a short time remains before the fall election takes place. Our opponents are no doubt counting largely, and think that they will accomplish much through what tbey may think as apathy on the part of the Republicans of our county— but they are counting withjut their host and will find thjmselves very disagreea bly deceived, when Butler county rolls up, not only her usual, but an increased majority for the candidates of her choice. From evqry part of our county we have the assurance that the Union voters understand tho importance of the issue, and are determined to do their duty.— Republicans, and well-meaniog men of the opposition can't be deceived by the fa'se and dead issues raised by designing men working under the Democratic stand ard. There is a fixed determination with tho Union loving people of Butler coun ty that tho fundamental principles for which Union men have contended for the last fix years shall triumph. Am bitious and unprincipled men may labor to decoive and raise side issues, but they will be foiled in their ambitious schemes, and union, liberty and justice will tri umph. In order to make success doubly sure, let every Republican do his duty, and all will be right.. "Our Answer." The article bearing tho above caption in the last issue of the Herald, is a good specimen of misrepresentations, but alto gether plain and honest. "If Rebels were willing to pay their obligations, even though such obligations were incurred iu a bad cause, it proves them at least honest." This is more than up expected that the editor would directly eulogize the he-roes of the "lost cause." It must be understood that the debts spoken of d 0 not mean the money they stole from the United States' Treasury ; nor the arms, ships, nor munitions of war. Oh, no! it means the Confederate "promises to, pay," which destroyed «ur commerce, put out our furnaces, burned our cities, murdered our citizens in pens of starva tion. O lyes; honest to pay suck a debt. But debt incurred to protect the home and the head of the worthy gentleman and the flag of his country is a monstrous ii ffair and calls forth his agony in tha cry of "taxes ! taxes !" But tho intel ligent voter knows it is the party that favored secession, oppos?d the war and called it "a failure," —that' is responsi« ble for the debt and not the party that fought the battles and won the victory in the face of Democratic opposition. The Herald continues, "and if Slave holders whose slaves were run off to make up the quota of Massachusetts and other New England States to save the hides of Yankees, who brag but do not fight, claimed compensation, they did no more than others would have done under sim ilar circumstances." This is all very nioe, but the editor should remember that there was a ce"- tain ere rure called Jeff. Davis, who once talked in the same strain about Yankees being cowards, who afterwards put on petty coats to escape from their pursuit. oo late to blow. Jeff. Davis; the battle is over and the party of the rebellion has its status. If the editor of the Herald would take the pains togo to Massachusetts, he would find the men there, who wou'd not fight, belong to the same party with the sams class of men in Butler county. He would find them in such districts as Oak land and Marion, where the Democratic majorities are, and he would find Demo cratic politiciins like himself, claiming that these Canadian Democrats bjui the right to Tote OS a cftisrn. Listen again. The same spirit that eulogizes treason, will of coarse, deride loyalty. "As to tho allegation, that this is an assumed Congress, there is more truth than poetry about that." Of eourse it is gross assumption for the loyal people of the Country to un furl the victorious flag of freedom over the graves of their murdered brothers and demand thnt it be respected. Gross assumption to »ay to the loyal seedier, you may vote, and to the Rebel soldier you cannot vote. Gross assumption to quell a New Orleans' or Memphis riot- Gross assumption to declare in the Civil Right's Bill that "all men are born free and equal." Gross assumption to sny that Rebels have forfeited any rights.— Gross assumption to give. the loyal ne gro the elective franchise. Why ? Be cause he fought in the Union army and against the men that the Democratic party wish to place in power, who fougbt in tho Rebel army, er resisted the draft and deserted to Canada. Do you see your true position ? Do you think to close the book of history, while the blood is yet red upon the bat tle field, and while the smouldering ru ins of Chambersburg, and other cities and villages are visible to all? This you cannot do. But if you could obliterate all this from memory aad destroy the his tory of your country—there are still 10,000 ghosts from Andersonville and other Rebel prisons that will not down at your bidding. Starvation, misery, cru> elty, barbaffnm, death', bankruptcy, ruin, devastation, murder, assassination, pois on, pestilence, and treason, will stand at every election poll, so long as our coun try remains to warn the honest citizen never again to trust this Government to the Democratic party. When you talk about taxation, you only point in so many words to Demo cratic misrule. Had Jus. Buchanan and li's party been loyal we would never have seen this mountain oH debt \\ ith him, it was as it now is with the editor of the Ilerald — assumption to attempt to coerce a State. Assumption to cross Mason's line ; assumption to reinforce Fort Sum ter. Iu a later day of the struggle it wa gross assumption to pass a conscription act. (It was contrary to the Constitu* tion of the Democrats and had a bad ef fect on their spleen. Many of them got a writ of habeas corpus and took their bodies over to Canada) Gross assumption to tax the people to defend the home of freedom and main tain the supremacy of our flag and the unity and honor of our Country. " Gross assumption" to call a slave a contraband. " Gross assumption" to make 200,000 contrabands into soldiers. And now, it is gross assumption to permit these 200,000 Union soldiers to vote. Gross assumption merely,because they were Union soldiers and will now vote the Union ticket. Gross assumption to deprive Rebel soK dicrs of the right to vote, not merely be cause they were Rebel soldiers, but be cause they would now vote the Rebel Democratic ticket. Our national debt we are told is Twen» ty-seven hundred mitl : on. This is one rea son why we never want again to see the party in power that brought this calamity upon ns, that increased our indebtedness by prolonging the struggle—by giving aid and comfort to the enemy by calling our four years of war "a failure." The Democratic party always prate about the Constitution—and with them, what kind of an instrument is it ? A rope of sand that would not coerce a State ; that would not preserve the uni ty or the existence of the Nation of which it was the Charter. And now, with them, it will not give the Elective Franchise to the Union Soldier. In short the Constitution of our Country with the Democratic party, was an instrument formed—not for its preservation and per petuity, but for its own dismemberment and destruction. The trut himiy be told in a few words : We have had a groat rebellion, to be known in history as the rebellion of 1861. This lebellion was conceived and brought forth under Dem ocratic rule—set up in partnership with the Northern Democracy to rule the Country, and after four years of terrible conflict, they were defeated. During this protracted struggle the Editor of the Ilerald can point to " act of the Democratic party or expressed principle of said party against said re bellion or calculated or intended to de feat it. The Republican party found it neces sary to use certain means and to enact certain laws t<» subduo this rebellion aud save tho country. Among the measures, we may mention —Emancipation, Legal Tender. Suppres sion of Habeas Corpus, Colored SoUiers, Soldiers voting, &c. The editor of the "Herald" cannot point to one single measure which has been used to accomplish this grand re sult, (the overthrow of the Rebellion,) which the Democratic party did mt po pose. Then, this party having given birth to the demon of secession and nura rd thesorpentine fien4 hto a gigantic re bellion aud favored every political poli cy and measure calculated to make said .rebellion a success, and having opposed every measure calculated to subdue said rebellion, now comes after the victory is won and the Country saved, and joins hands with the rebel soldiers, leads them up to the ballot box and demands that their votes be received. Gives the Union soldier a kick and a cuff and tells him to begone. Gives place and position to traitors. Cheers Jeff Davis and Wilkes Booth, and kicks all the doble Heroes like Sheridan out of place. Truly the Democratic party is the party of treason and rebellion and history has so recorded it. Again, the Ilerald assumes to change the name of our candidate for Supreme Judge »nd calls Henry W. Williams— Thomas Williams who was for the repu diation of some R. 11. Bonds—this is small business ; but asit happens, no person can be slandered by calling him —Tom. Williams. Tom. was never in favor of repudiat ing ourLegol Tender like Sharswood. If the Herald has the power and as sumption to change names he had better change the name of tho Rebel Democrat ic party. It has ceased to have a charm, and Congress being two thirds Repub* lican, the Democratic party of the Re bellion is a dead letter; and all the hope it has to-day, is, that the followers of Jeff. Davis will come to the rescue in the event of] reconstruction. Shame on that " gross assumption" that will among honest Christian people l.ike the citizeus of our county, try by false statements and misrepresentations to build up a par ty that has long ago hurried itself in in fauiy and has no hope of resurrection Bare in the Cohorts of treason. GRIST MILL AND DWELLING BURNED. About three o'clock p. M. of Monday the 23d instant, the Steam Grist Mill, in Clinton tp. belonging to Adam Ekas anp Jas Rear, (commonly known as the Lai* din Mill) was totally consumed by fire A dwelling house situated near the mill was also burned. We have not learned any of the particulars about bow the fire occurred or the amount of the loss sus tained, but the loss must be considerable as the Mill was a good one and as is generally the ca-se this time of the year there was no doubt considerable grain in the Mill. It is no doubt a heavy loss to the owners and will cause a great in convenience to the community. The loss is partially covered by an insurance of 82600 in the Saxonburg company. Wo are also informed that Jas. Norris a worthy citizen living near the mill was seriously, perhaps fatally injured by falling from an adjacent building while assisting at the fire. PHILADELPHIA UNIVERSITY OF MED ICINE AND SURGERY. —The trustees and faculty of the above Medical College have issued "scholarships" at Seventy fire Mini ach, which entitles the holder to attend lectures uutil graduation, or as many sessions as he wishes. This renders a medical education cheaper than ever proposed by any Uni versity or College in this country or Eu rope, possessing the same extensive t'a-> cilitics. There arc sictecn Professors, and eve rg branch of Medicine and Surgery is throughly taught. The stii'lent holding "scholarship" can enter tho college at any time during the Lectures, attend as long as he wishes, and re cntor the Institution as frequent ly as desired. I'ersons wishing to obtain scholorships can applj to L. Oldshue, M. D. Profess or of Urine-Pathology in the above nam ed College. liis office and residsnce is No. 132 Grant street, Pittsburgh, Pa. STOLEN. —On the night of 19th inst., a Dark Bay marc from the stable of Sam uel Purvis, Esq. sf>o is offered for tho return of the marc with or without the thief. A buggy was takeu from the sU le of R. C. M'Aboy on the same night. SIOO is offered for the apprehension of the thi<»f, and 850 for the return of tho buggy. Also, on the seme night, a splendid set of silver mounted harness were taken from the stable of Jacob Reiber. A handsome reward will be paid for the re turn of the same. THE FAlß. —Waut of space will not permit us to speak at length of the Fair held near this place last week. We give the list of premiums awarded. The attendance was large and although the exhibition was not as good as it might and should have been, it was not by any means as predicted by "Clinton a failure." No doubt some changes and different arrangements aro needed, which we have no doubt will be made. ' LOST.— A large Brass Key was lost on last Thursday, some place between BuU ler and the Fair Grounds. A liberal reward will ke paid to any one returning the same to this office. PEACHES. —Mr. Solomon Moser of Oakland township, has our thanks for some very nice peaches which he was kind enough to send us as a present.— They were certainly the finest peaches that wo have seen this «ca»on.

But two ran—Richardson's Gray driv en by More and Ircn Gray owned and rode by Bradley of Pittsburgh, Bradley's Horse under the saddle, and New Cas tlo in sulky, nearer matched than any two that had yet ran—made this race tho most interesting of all. The gray from New Castle won both Heats in 2-55 and 2-53, but only by a half length each time, Next came a running race between the Queen of the West, rode by Colonel Frederick Alexander, of the F.

U. S. A. COMMUNICATION*. For tha Citiscn, MR. EDITOR I had the pleasure of being present at a social westing of the members of O. S. P. S. S. of West Sun bury on tho 13th of Sep. The S. S wan addiessed by Mr. Louis Wick. Subject; Development a law in the moral as wall a* the natural world ; ho was followed by Mr. G. H. Graham, subject, be sure you are right, then go ahead," showing that while intellectual development and mental cultivations give power; the moral faculties must be so trained as to direct our enemies in a right direction The Rev. W. P. Breadcn and Rev. Jauies Coulter then followed with re marks nertinent to the occasion. Then came to the children, if not to oihers, a very pleasant part in the affair in the shape of a collection consisting of pies, cakes, candies &c., furnished by the good ladies of the congregation and oth ers. The performances were varied by pieces of mu<>ic sung by the school led by an organ skillfully playedby a member ot ti e school. The meeting was a very pleasant one calculated to inerease the interest felt in S. S. and also to produce harmony and good feeling in the vicinity. One thing I noticed with pleasure, was this, that many persons were present from other S. S. and other churches, coming sca ■only to greet us with pleasant smiles !and kind words but contributing to their and our enjoyment in a more substantial manner in the shape of pies, cakes &c., i Rational enjoyment seemed to be the ' order of the day and at the close of the meeting when fhe audience dispersed many if not all felt an increased interest in S, S. cause and determined, much as they had done to do still more to sustain that important auxiliary to tho church A PBIEND TO S 8, Premiums Awarded HORSES.

Topics u ftomipt THE PRESIDENT IN MILDER TEMPER. The New York Timet special says : As an indication of the President's latest temper on the situation of reconstruction affairs, witness the following abstracts of his views as recently expressed in oourer sation with ecrtain politicians who called upon him for the purpose of urging hiui to re-open registration in the South. He informed them that he could not do so without incurring it certain risk of im peachment, and admitted that the recon« truction laws confer on the District Mil itary Commanders ,sole control orcr regis tration. His only power of interference was the removal of communders when they failed to execute the kiwi in accor dance with the views ot their legal con struction. He admitted that tha Dis trict Commanders are octiag under di rest authority of Congress in tho perform • ance of n civil duty and that if he should' attempt to assume power as Commander in-Chief to Control tho time of regis tration and holding eitction, they would have the right to refuse to obey his orders, and they wou'd not be amenable tn punishment for «.illitary insubordina if thay did so. flj stated that tho recent promulgation of the Amnesty Proclamation threw upon Congress the onus of depriving legally qualified voters from registry and voting. He hoped that tho Southern people would apprec iate it in that light.
