T a body styled the a conserva Lunion National committee and rating Many of the most promo politicians of the country met in Burnett House in Cincinnati 1 Friday. The venerable Amos �1 jail was elected permanent chair a of the committee. A of the Bert expressed an Earnest desire lie nomination of Gene nil Geotge jul Elan for the presidency old abets a Lessage. We print old abets message and proclamation to d the Nigger is the Man that has come and he is appropriately noticed in fact he is the All in All. 50,000 of them Wear Uncle same a uniforms the advantage therein consisting that it hides their nakedness. If the uniform on their backs has been of any other advantage to the country Abs Wyeth not. To protect said uniforms on said niggers his proclamation exempts from Pardon All who May kick said uniform having a Nigger therein. White men May be kicked As usual. He done to say that his 50,000 niggers Are going to restore the Union that is a minor consideration if of any consideration at All but he puts Forth a grand plan to have himself re elected president in spite of the will of the people. The Northern elections were Many of them so close and then after having the advantage of the most stupendous frauds that it is considered dangerous to Trust to them for a prolongation of Powei so we have his plan which is Noth. Ing More or less than the army we have no objections to the army voting but it is the manner in which Abe proposes to use it against which we protest. A Jthn a by his one tenth plan 4,400 soldiers in Arkansas will give him 4 electoral votes 5,800 in Texas 4 More 5,000 in Louisiana 6 More 6,900 in Mississippi 7 More 14,100 in Tennessee 12 More 9,000 in Alabama 9 More 10,600 in Georgia 10 More 1,400 in Florida 3 More 6,000 in South Carolina 8 More and 9,600 in North Cai Olina 10 More. Thus 72,800 soldiers in the states named will secure for Abe the 73 Electora votes of said states which added to the 41 of the new engl and states the 11 of Maryland and Delaware already under military Sway would make 125 electoral votes sure in spite of what the great states of new. Quot uni try to noon Livonia Olio Indiana Illinois &c., might the 27 votes still wanting might then also be scared up by oppression and a military the plan to have himself re elected and thus prolong the terms of office of his adherents at the expense of the life and blood and treasure of the nation is a Fine one and worthy of the corrupt and despotic party now ruling the country to its ruin. There is no longer any pretence that the War is not for the abolition of slavery thus Yeri lying what we said an Hundred times in the e columns and for which All kinds of violence have been threatened the president Congress and their party declared when they wanted soldiers at the beginning of the War that it was for the sole and Only purpose of preserving the Union. From their conduct we soon mistrusted them and proclaimed their deception. They now stand before the world As deceivers if nothing worse and our warnings have proven True As has every other prediction been verified we made since the War commenced. If the administration had carried on the War for the p opposes indicated at the beginning and not turned it into a negro freeing crusade peace and the Union would Long ago have been restored and we Are free to say nov that never will that devoutly wished for consummation be realized under the plan and with the ideas of the present party in Power if a million More lives Are sacrificed. We advise our friends to read the they will see in it for themselves the evidences of the extravagance and fanaticism of the administration and the ruin of the nation. Quot exemptions from the All cases where exemption from the draft is asked on any plea whatever application should be made before december 20th, and not postponed until after the draft has been made. Those who Are entitled to exemption on account of physical ailment Aronld apply at once Asif drafted they Are liable to be placed in the invalid corps. So a a the1 administration at Washington is a fool. Here we Are within 4 Days of the 20th, and no notice except what appears a Bove in the advertiser to Day has yet been Given that application must be made before tlie20th. If the above order will be Ansis Ted on the lame the halt and the Blind of this District will be in. A Nice mess Lodi lifted on the 5th of Jan uary. _ _ Jug up thanksgivings and proclamations Are did abets hobbies.,�? he takes to them like ducks to Wetter. The roast turkeys we had none abolition jubilees &c., were scarcely Over two1 weeks ago before another Call for thanks giving was issued. Everybody was to a repair to their place of worship and Render special Hom age a because a the Union fore s cannot probably hereafter be Dis lodged from East Small favors thankfully received. The people now a Daj s pay but Little respect to Abels proclamations deeming them about equal to the fifth Bee in a Wagon. A recommendation that a Day of thanksgiving be observed because peace is once again restored to our unhappy country would be hailed with More Delight by millions than All the Nigger proclamations and Gunpowder thanksgivings the world Ever saw. Until then let us wait we Trust not too Long. 1k3l, about once a year a poor Devil of a contractor is nabbed tried and convicted to give the abolition orators and papers an Opportunity to dilate upon the us ceasing vigilance of lock abets honest administration and also to screen the hundreds of thousands greater and More influential rascals who Are now patriotically sapping the life blood of the nation. They Are careful to forget to mention however that As soon As one of the a a patriots is convicted abets or Andy a Pardon As the ease May be restores them again to Liberty there is so much Rasca Lity at present in the administrations at Washington and Harrisburg that we Are tempted to believe that the arrests made Are prearranged and for the purpose of making the people believe that there is still remaining the seed of an honest disposition among the Powers that be. A a a in a a a a la Fol tie abolitionists Are becoming More bold every Day in their assaults on general Mcclellan. One of their main charges aside from hot being an abolitionist is that he was a too slow in the a on to Richmond movement. Will they Tell us what rapid Progress has been made in that direction since his removal ? an Effort is to be made in the present Congress to increase the pay of privates to double what it is at present. The Effort will no doubt be crowned with a at the same time they should pass an reducing the., pay of the officers from major general Down to the pay of privates thus placing All on an Equality. As it is the officer Hae the big pay the easy Oil the honors and no More fighting than the privates. Let All be paid Well but let there be Equality. So drunkenness among women has increased so much in Boston for the last ten years that the Good people at the bub of the Quot universe Are Dis cussing the necessity of establishing a Retreat for intemperate under the Rulo of abolition anarchy fanatical churches and faithless preachers All sorts of crimes Are spreading abroad with fearful rapid a in a _ huf Longstreet raised the siege of Knoxville on the night of the 4th instant retreating towards Bristol. His Retreat was on both Banks of the Holston River Foster following him on the South and Sherwan on the North Bank. Longstreet had thirty six hours Start of our troops in his Retreat. Later. General Longstreet army is drawn up in line of Battle at Rutledge which is ten Miles South of Tazewell and eighteen from Cumberland the Federal army is at Tazewell and the Clinch River runs Between the opposing forces. Skirmishing is reported there though no particulars Are give and there is no indication of Longstreet a future movements. So East Tennessee is not free from rebels after All and the presidents a proclamation for every body to hasten to Church and give thanks was rather premature. God done to seem to listen much to the prayers of the combatants on either Side in this a cruel the Weehawken sunk. We have news from Charleston As late As wednesday last.

Harri Sboro Djoko. 10, 1863. Or. Editor a it is nigh approach my in co a ars since this unhappy War was inaugurated hundreds of thousands of lives he be been immolated on their country Salter millions of treasure have Bein expended in carry on this strife and Here let us ask the solemn queston Are to near or its consummation Tolian when the first gun was fired on. Foci Sumter ? it is an undeniable fact that 6fir armies have been wonderfully successful in defeating the rebels for the last six months Many pieces of captured artillery and thousands of prisoners being trophies of their valor but does this alone justify us in cherishing a speedy add substantial settlement of our difficulties when the administration is inexorable in its determination not to admit any state unless it yields to the demands of emancipation a had we a statesman in the presidential chair instead of a consummate ass the fast accumulated victories which have of late crowned the March of our unconquerable armies would be immediately followed by conciliatory measures whose Potency for Good cannot be doubted. It is plainly evident to every intelligent mind that the sword alone Cun not Neco Rii plish a restoration of the states to their former grandeur in a the Union and that it is essentially necessary to add to the sword the Powers of conciliation and Compromise if it had been the wish of the abolition party to bring this War to a termination it might have been accomplished Long since or in fact entirely averted but they were not Content with the a Union As it was a and1 to Day their enmity to. It is As great As the vilest rebel in tile South. Why to establish the fact of their treason we need but refer to sobe of the expressions emanating from their lips when they thanked god tor our defeats because it had a tendency to prolong the War and gave them a Chance to subvert the War from its original Parps be to an abolition crusade.

We must not follow the teachings of the Harrisburg Telegraph and other papers of that Stripe who a express a greater love for Wendell in nil lips and Lloyd Garrison than for the father of his country George . The duty of the democratic party in this crisis is to continue to stand firm in its opposition to the. Ire esies of secession and abolitionism Aud per haps when madness ceases to Rule peace May again be restored. A Democrat. And calling upon the people of the several enrolment districts and sub districts of the state to offer bounties to volunteers. The deficiency of Pennsylvania being in proportion to her population less than that of any of the adjacent states it is hoped that by a vigorous a support her quota maybe filled by volunteers and the draft thus be prevented.

They have their tongues like a Serpent adders Poison is under their lips.�?�. The c0nsc�pti0n. The opinion in knowing circles at Washington seems to be that the �300 will not be repealed but modified. The changes in the Law it is surmised will a look rather to raising the commutation Money to a sum equal to the bounties needs Saiy to be paid for volunteering to reducing the number of exemptions and to throwing the now existing two classes into one rather than to any More Radical a discharged the Corning draft.the Provost marshal general has decided that soldiers who have received a discharge from the army on account of physical disability May be received anew under the last Call for volunteers.they will not however fee allowed to re enter the service As Veteran soldiers but will receive Only the bounties offered to fresh recruits. The decision will be of interest to Many As it opens a door which has heretofore been closed against is also stated that All men who were in the service on the 3d of March 1863, Are exempt from the operations of the coming draft. Ail such persons by producing their discharge papers to tote Board of enrolment can have their names stricken off the list of enrolled persons. The friends of those who have volunteered since the last draft was made can have the names of such volunteers also stricken off the enrolment list by furnishing the Board with the proper evidence of enlistment. A Call on the people to avoid the draft.Harrisburg, dec. 10.governor Curtin to Day received a communication from the War department announcing that the government declines to adopt his.

In speaking of our negro recruiting he says Quot nor has less unrelenting warfare been waged by these pretended friends of human rights and liberties against the unfortunate negroes.
