Kidnapped with Stanton and Seward, Astonished the diplomats corps— Hurried y busih-d to i..?e-ward, The Capitol ne'er lo see more. Frightened to death by guerrillas, Each one of them iough as a bear ; Saleiy bas fled Irom our villas, I really begin lo despair.

H .Heck, no mure of your diddling, You'd better aikni.wledg" the Cum ; Fiddlers should slick lo ill ir fiddling, By warriors the sword should be burue. Drat it I where find able generals ? 1 here see a migbi small chance ; Down goes Ihe cause of the Federals, Uuler-8 we imooit some from FRANCE. Serious Charge Against, Seward. The Ias"t number ol the Button Pioneer has the Ijpliowing lemarkable articles : A Fact.—From a reliabl source—the most reliable which can be desired—we learn a fact which siauds without a parallel in the history of republican government and representation, and renders it difficult io decide wbat we ought to be more surprised at ; tbat it wag al all possible, or tbat it has uot yet become public. Those who have preserved ihe leai-t uudeistanding ol the inletesl ot tins republic, aud the least sympathy loi the maintenance ol ils houor, have beeu justly nol merely surprised, but Outraged at a policy whicb, besides allowing the arch enemy of all lepublicamsm 10 pul bis foot ou Mexican sol wilhuul ottering a word ol remonstrance, did moreover aid him iu hi8 euterprise, by allowing him io take bis war material Irom the pons ot ibe North American Republic, while the shipment oi arms was refused to M- xico. Even this was justly characterized not merely as a humiliaiiou but as almost treason to the Cuiimty. Bu. wuat name shall be given to an act .. hicb buls a km ie into lhe hands of the mur - dt-rer ol ihe republics, so that be may murder the ilmd one, aud ,-oou alter the lourtb ? Tne laci ol «hich we speak is Ibis ; Seward, at the time the French invasion was in pi ogress, delivertd lo the French minister, Mercier, Irom the archives of Washington, all ihe plaus and maps from tbe cain- paigu of Geu. Scott, lu order thereby to facilitate toe assassination ol lhe Mexican Republic. In a couuiiy like Mexico sucb plans and maps have quite a different value Irom what ihey possess in au open, cultivated and topographically known territory. They have lhe value ot a deadly weapon ; but even wei'e Ihey worthless, tbeir surreuder woulu be au aci uf low dishonor, infidelity and iu- lamy, wh;ch uo government could cummit witbuut becoming the object ol universal coutempt. For such an extraordinary act there must exist au extraordinary motive. What can it be? Did Mr. Seward, by a servility which was intended to prove its reliability by throwing away all honor and self- interest, to turn aside, at ttie expense of au uufor- lunate neighboring Slate, lhe invassion wilh whicb a powerlul nt-igbborng despot seemed to threaten ibis republic? in lbat cai-e be was uot merely the blindest, but also the most cowardly ot all statesmen wbu have ever beeu eutrusted with lhe representation ol a republic. Or did be think to charm the threatening enemy inio Ibe trap, in whicb he mi; bt accomplish his rum? This would only be thinkable il an impassable blindness had made bim overlook tbe power ot tbe euemy, and tbe notorious fact lbat be supported the southern rebellion. Or sha.l we cail lhe ungrateful assumption to our assistance, that tbe "first statesman" of America did really see a true friend and ally iu be French murderer of re ublic ? Whichever way we turn, whatever explanation we may seize upon there is none which does not show Mr. Seward and his chief to be totally incapable and unworthy ol representing this republic—either from blindness or cowardice. And yet thi? judgment ie Ihe only escape for the still sever assumption ihat Mr. Sew- ward did t.ot knowingly and intentionally sell tbe republic to tbe most horrible despot of tbe world. To render assasBiuating seivices as accomplices of the criminal ol second December iu his attempt io destroy a Iriendly neighboring State, and Ibeti to kiss tbe bauds ot ihe bloody butcher of Poland in order to protect ourselves from the first mentioned criminal—such is the role which the successors ol Washington and Franklin and Monroe play iu the lace of the warld in representing this republic in 1863.— Port. Republic. Russian Great Guns and Iron Armin-Ti-ial of Steel Guns ainlAimor Plates In St Pctt.slni.g_ On Wednesday the 7th ol October, N. S.. further trials look place at St. Petersburg witb the experimental niue-inch rifled cast steel gun. Thia gun is of sol d cast sreel, made by Krupp, and throws a three huudred piund shell or a four buudred aid fifty pounds solid shot. The results ol previous experiments witb tbisguu led the Russian government to order fifty ol them, which are now in course of delivery. The principal objects of Ihe experiments ot the 7ih inst. were to assertain the best desL-riptioo of sli.ll, aud to test the quality ol armor plate* supplied by Messrs. John Browu &s Co.- of Sheffield. First a series of cast iron shells, three buudred pounds each, were fired at different ranges, and then shells made by Krupp were fired al ibe lour aud oue-balf incb plates. Tbe first shell, of hard cast steel, was tweuiy two and One half inches Lng, (two aud a half diameters,) with a fiat end four inches in diameter. Fired with filty pouuds ot powder at seven bundled feet distance, it passes through the plate, oak aud teak backing, and broke iuto mau; (i ces, alihough filled.wilb sand only. The second « id third shells were also ol Krupp'a steel the same length, but wilh six and one-hall second euds. Tbese Shells pierced plate8 wood, etc-, and also went to pieceB, although only filed with sand. The lourth shell was made Jby M. Poteleff, ol puddled steel, on Aboukoff's system, tbe same dimensions as the second and third and went through trou, teak, etc., but was only bulged up from nine seconds ta twelve seconds, and the end flattened ; not a single crack beiiik visible in the shell. The filih shell, tbe same as the fourth, passed through iron, teak and the second targat, and went at least a mile beyond. Tbe sixtb and seventh shells were from Krupp. aud werecbaiged wilb powder ; they were quite flattened, nine seconds diameter. One exploded in the plate, the other in tbe wood. Tbe eighth aud nineth shells were of casl iron, and although they pissed through ihe plaie, were of course destroyed. Evening prevented further trials, which will yet be made on the same plate. The results ou the plate were highly satisfactory. In a space ol lour minutes and six seconds by ibree minu es and six seconds, eight holes were made without any crack of the slightest description, and tbe marine officers present were highly satisfied, because tbey are obtaining four thou-and tous ot plates from Messrs. John Brown & Co. ior their different ships. The Englisl Government would do well to note tbe progress the Russians are making in guunery. Cast steel guns are decidedly belore any yet produced in England of any oiher metal. The nine second gun of Krupp bas been fired with three hundred pound shells, and filty pounds of powder, about seveniy limes, without any flaw, and the Russian Gevernraeut will shortly be in a posiljoM lo obtain iu St. Petersburg a ikrge supply of cast steel guns, made from Russian iron, by Russians, on Abmiki.ff's sysiem, which is very near tbe same as theKrupp's—London Times. ■ The Soldiers at Home. The Administration, were, at Hist, ashamed of their course iu picking out soldiers from the army, and sending ihem home to vote. When tbey first tried it, last spring, in the case of Ibe Conneciicut •election, they denied the charge with much indignation, but now they no longer disguise tbe fact. It is estimated (.fiat not less than 20,000 men were were seut borne within a few days previous to the State election. The city seemed in undated with them. They poured into it by every train, until it seemed as it New York was half soldiers. As a general thing, all allowed that they-came borne, under tbe promise to vole the Abolition or so- called Uuion ticket. Scores of them would make affidavit to this effect, were they not afraid of punishment when they got back inio the army for doing so. Few of ihem dared to disobey orders, tor Ihey were watched, and if tbey did not-vote as r.quired, tbey would be reported by tbe Loyal Leaguers. Is it uot a splendid, country, where an Administration uses the army to'perpetuate their own power, and force men in their employ to vote as they -'dictate? Who shall say that we ought not to give such an Administration '• more men " and "' more money ;" in fact, invigorate and sustain them to the lullest extent ? Away with tbe laitor who say's that Abe Lincoln ought not to have all the power be' asks for! Henry Wakd Beechbb is Exgi.axo.—We\flnd the lollowing in the London News of October 1st : Rev. H. W. Beecher, wbo has returned from his tour on the continent, accompanied by the Rev. Dr. Raymond, spent Saturday evening in the Tabernacle House, Finsbury, to which. Dr. Campbell had iuvited a number of the leading ministers of the metropolis to meet him. The conversation was mainly turned on tbe civil war now raging, on Which Beecher expressed himself wilh great frankness and confidence. Tbe Rev. John Graham and tbe R-v. John Kennedy made pointed refrence to some expressions ascribed to Beecher about the time of tbe Trent discussion, when he was reported baviog said, ■' They wofild bide 'heir time till tbey bad settled matters with the South,., and then !" Tne report which reached England stopped there, but not so thje speaker, who finished the sentence nearly as follows: '■ Then we will show England how we can forgive au injury, and heap coals of Are on the heads of those from whom it cemes!" A learned lexicographer of our acquaintance permits us to hnk at the advance sheets ol a utw dictionary which he proposes to bring out before th'e re-appearance of Noah's Ark. T e lollowing definitions will give the reader some idea ol the merits of this great undertaking; Copperhead—1. A bold, honest, snake, which is harmless, unless molested, but, being set upon, will fight desperate ly,and bas a dangerous bile. 2.—A politician wbo believes in <heUnion as it* was and the Constitution as it is. aud who cannot be bought with greenbacks, nor frightened with bastiles. Black- snake—1. This snake is a cowardly, skulking, wriggling "cuss," which steals whatever it wants and is afraid of a copperhead aa it is ol tbe devi He iB supposed to be tbe same snake that told such infernal lies in the Garden ol Eden. 2.—A politician, who believes the white man is a negro, and is'determined to lake a negro ol him, or spoil bis 0i untry in tbe undertaking. He is sometimes fa_ miliarly called "Old Abe." The ami-slavery folks have at length waked np to the value of negroes. Unfortunately, riduole is a weapon to wbieh the vascillating too rften yield, forgetting tbat it be ones ouly to tbe little and ungenerous minds, and tbat those who use it, are subjects for composition rather than dread. The party management ol tbe democratic parly has beeu consisteut with the spirit ai.d teuOr of its principles. While its catid dates for the political office were properly selected Irom those who adhered to democratic principles, yet when it had achieved a triumph at a presidential election, the criterion ot qualification for appointment to executive and judicial offioe was in the language ol Jeff erson. "I-. be honest—is he capable—is be failbfui (O lhe Constitution ?" The government was administered for the benefit ol the whole Union, uot tor a section of it. All this has been changed by the parly in power.—Houesty, capability, and respect for the Constitution are ignored. Imbeciles, sw.in dlers and fanatics uow fill the public office's, aod tbe government is administered by a sectional party, in a sectional spirit, for sectional purposes. Republicanism has triumphed, aud its triumph bas cost millions of treasure and rivers ot blood ai d i' continued iupower will baukrupt ibe people aid destroy the Union. There is but one way to avert the dire calamity, and that is to restore to power the democratic party—a parly which has always stood faithInlly by the Constitution—always cherished tbe rights of the Slates, and sa- creedly guarded the liberties of the citizen—always maintained the supremacy of Ihe civil over the military power—alwajs cherished "freedum ol religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press the writ of habeas corpus and trial by jury.' — Mountain Democrat. Not a Failure. — President Lincoln's very singular statement that volunteering had proved inadequate to fill our armies, is rather too much for even lhe more ca.idid Repnblieau papers. The Commercial Advertiser well says in reply : "We have uever thought that the system of volunteering had been exhausted or had proved inadequate. Once or twfee when in full tide of Success, the government has stopped it. Last year fonf hundred thousand men out of the six hundred called for were raised in a very short time. In New Jersey the quota is being rapidjy made up. By the operation ot bounties, volunteers may be had in any reasonable nnnbers. Had Ihe system beeu urgently put in practice ea-r'ly in the spring, as many volnnieers would be in the army by the first of December as the draft wiI1 lurnisb ol conscript?." The New York World thus commeuts on the above.: Tbe Commercial might bave added tbat the volunteers would have fougbt wieingly. wbile the conscripts will always fi<;bt under protest. It is very clear that it is not soldiers the Administration is after so much as ihe power to command the Berviees of the cilizens, wiihout reference to ibe State authorities. In a word, tbe aim is to destroy tbe States, and put absolute power in Mr. Lincoln's bands. That is v.hy volunteers were am called for when they were needed, and a draft is now inmsted upoa after great victories have relieved our armies of all pressure. Gold—There are good reasons for believing tbat gold was the first metal with which man became acquainted. lis peculiar properties render il the best for the purpose of being worked by a pritnative people. Gold is the onfy metal whicb is used in the arts and manufactures. The process of extricating all tbe other metals from their matrix or ore is so tedious and difficult (bat without gold it is probable our forefathers Would have had no metal at all to use. We wbo live at this period of tbe world's history oan well believe how little advancement could be made in civilization without a metal of some kind. Now those qualities which we recognize as metalic in the highest degree are possessed by gold, and it is thus we see even io this single instance, a proof of the Creator's wisdom, and adap ation ofa meatus to an end. Gold most easily worked of all metals, the most imperishable, the most brilliant auS attractive, was the first that was given to man. No other metal could have served the purpose s<. well as the one we find him first possessed of. No wonder gold is typified io tbe Scriptures as the purest metal, no wonder tbat It was chosen as tbe means (in tbe shape of coin) of renrasentsing the products of labor tbat man should select what age alter age bas proved to be tbe most fitting thing for this purpose. As an assaranoe to os that the supply of gold shall be adequate to onr wants, this metal has been found in the ratio of tbe increase of the human family. It is diffused over the whole earth, and as aciedasa sttmu us to man to visit regions previoasly uncultivated. The wilds of Australia and Ca ifornia h .ve thus been peop ed iu our day in the same way that the Phcfineciana p onled old Spain or the Spanish bouth America years ago. Dispatches of the 4i b and 5i h represented " the Government " as being eonfiiied—to its room—and in ill health generally—probably in consequence ol the maternal painB attendant upmi tbe delivery of its^annual message. Grannies Wells, Oha.se, and Sewatd were in attendance. p. g.—Sstill Later.—Hert's what's tbe matter with it: Executive MassIhn, December 5. Reliable info'rmauon having be'etf received that the insurgent forces are retreating from East Tennessee, under circumstances rendering it probably that the Union forces cannot hereafter be dislodged from that important position, and esteeming this to be ot hi^h national consequence, I recommend that all loyal people do, on receipt of'tbis information, assemble at their places of worship, and offer sp.cial homage ingratitude to> Almighty God for this great advancement of the National cause. A. LrNCOLS. Government feels better. The message hasn't sees daylight yet. Marriages areod the decrease in New England, Massdcbuselts having her share ofthe falling off. It is probable that the decrease will continue, as the cost of living most be heavily increased by the institution of large direct taxes, one of the consequences of the war. The New York Post says "the country owes Mr, Chase a debt of gratitude which no place, however exalted, no honors, however great, which the people can give him, will ever'repay." D'ye mind that, Abraham ? Tbe New York Anti-Slavery /standard has found out bow Rosecfans was defeated:—"Who— everjit may be responsable for the dilatory filling of tbe Corps d'Afrique in the slave eonntry, we apprehend, will have to bear tbe brunt ofthe blame.' How air old maid a I way b eyes a single gentleman ! She looks at him as she would'at a dog in dog days— wondering whether he intends U> bite." *-.»-,* CO CO ,_ CO CM o CO o> OJ r- 00 CM |s- CM CO CM o to — CM — ■tf CM — °l_ co CM — CM CM — _ — CM 02 i o CM CO
