The following correspondence was
read before the Convention :
HUNTINGDON, ( Sept. 8, 1862
To A. W. BENEDICT
Dear Sir :—Until the
recent party Conventions met, it was
our belief you were opposed to making
party nominations in this crisis of our
affairs. One of those Conventions
placed you in nomination for Assem
bly. We have been elected del
egates to a convention called to
make nominations without respect
to party, and if you deem it
advisable to give them to us, we would
request definite answers to the follow
First. Were you and are you yet op
posed to making party nominations at
this time ?
Second. have you accepted the nom
ination for Assembly made by one of
the recent Conventions ?
Third. If elected would :you doom it
your duty to avoid the introduction of
all mere partisan issues, to hold your
selfindependent of party organizations,
and to endeavor to unite men of all
parties in a cordial and earnest sup
port of the Government in its efforts to
suppress the rebellion?

John Scott, Henry Glazier, Wm. Dorris,
and Alexander Port, Esqs.
GENTLEMEN —Yours containing three
. • .
inquiries, is before me. Usually, ques
tions to candidates are from friends to
aid, or from enemies to entangle. I
believe your purpose a nobler one, and
I cheerfully answer.
• - " First, Were you, and are you yet,
opposed to the policy of making party
I did, and I do still believe, that the
policy of making strictly party nomi
nations was a mistaken one. Loyal
men, now, should have but one pur
pose. I would not by any act of mine,
even by implication, aid a foe who
seeks my country's life. I would sink
every other issue in the higher ono of
saving this Government from ruin.
" Second, have you accepted the
nomination for Assembly made by one
of the recent Conventions ?"
I have not accepted ; nor declined,
as no formal notice of that nomination
has been given me. fly name had
been presented to the people, not to a
party. I presume my name was used
with a knowledge of my views. I
would not dictate the peculiar organi
zation the friendship of the people
should assume. Friends with whom
I have long acted and whose patriot
ism I do not doubt, corpposed that
Convention. They invited all loyal
men to co-operate with them—they
disavowed party considerations. lam
not justified in doubting their profes
sions, or their actions. 1 urged all
with whom I talked to disregard all
claims but their country's, and present
such a ticket as would have secured
harmony amongst all earnestly loyal
"Third, If elected would you deem it
your duty to avoid the introduction of
all mere partisan issues, to hold your
self independent of party organizations,
and to endeavor to unite men of all
parties in a cordial and earnest sup
port of the Government in its efforts
to suppress this rebellion ?"
If elected, I would prove that I had
other ends than mere party success.—
Mere partisan issues shall not com
mand my service. I would labor to
unite in one efficient organization, ev
ery loyal man, the object of which
should be a speedy annihilation of this
wicked rebellion. The foes of this re
bellion are my friends—its friends are
my foes. Till it is destroyed I will
join hands with every man of every
party and creed to make one party
against rebellion in arms—or rebellion
in secret. This is now my party.
My country demands my service,
and there is no sacrifice I will not
make. 11'1 am not needed in the balls
of Legislation, I will cheerfully work
at home. Doubtful of my own abili
ties to render her that aid, which the
great necessities of the time demand I
shall make no promises which I shall
not fulfil, lest I produce the mischief I
would avoid. Yours truly,
A. W. BENEDICT.
A County Committee was appoint
ed with Alex. Port, Esq., as Chairman,
who was directed to address a letter
to the Senatorial and Congressional
candidate's, containing inquiries simi
lar to those answered by Mr. Benedict.
We will give the resolutions and
proceedings in full in our next number,
and in the mean time bespeak for this
ticket what we feel assured it will re
ceive, the united support of the loyal
people of the county.

In the Name and by the Authority
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,
ANDREW G. CURTIN,
Governor of the said Commonwealth
WHEREA.s, in the present position of
affairs, it is expedient that measures
should be taken to arm and prepare
our people for defence :
Now, therefore, I do earnestly rec
ommend the immediate formation
throughout the Commonwealth, of
volunteer companies and regiments, in
conformity with the militia act oflBsB.
Arms will be distributed to the organ
izations so to be fbrmed, agreeably to
the provisions of that act.
It is further recommended, that, in
order to give due opportunities for
drill and instruction, all places of busi
ness be closed daily at three o'clock,
P. M., so that persons employed .there
in may, after that hour, be at liberty
to attend to their military duties.
The cheerful alacrity with which the
men of Pennsylvania have hitherto
given themselves to the service of the
country, has pressed heavily on her
military resources. lam reluctant to
ask her: people to assume further bur
dens, but as their safety requires that
they should do so, it is in their behalf
that I put forth the recommendations
herein contained, and urge a prompt
compliance with them.
Given under my hand and the great
seal of the State, at Harrisburg, this
Fourth day of September, in the
year of our Lord one thousand eight
hundred and sixty-two, and of the
Commonwealth the eighty-seventh.
By the Governor.
Sec'y of the Commonwealth.
IMPORT-INT.—Persons forming them
selves into volunteer companies under
the call of the proclamation of the
Governor printed above, will not be
required to uniform or to be inspected,
before they receive arms. As soon as
any number of men over thirty-two
elect their captain, they will be furn
ished arms on the I..eghisition of their
captain, ho giving bonds for the safe
keeping of the same.

army, and late Democratic Mayer of
Reading), has accepted a Union nomi
nation for Congress in the Berks Dis
trict, in opposition to Ancona, the Val

acceptance, Major Wanner says.:
" A Democrat, heart and soul my
self, I am deeply impressed by the fact
that the compliment you pay me comes
from men with whom I have co-opera
ted when the name of Democrat was
not used as a cloak for sympathizing
with treason. I have enlisted under
the Flag of my beloved country, and
in this, her darkest hoar, she is so dear
to me that I cannotleavc here to enter
upon a canvass for a civil office, but if
my name can be of any service to de

be claimed by the enemies of my coun

to use it."

It is understood that Gen. McClellan

The judiciousness of this appointment
will be appreciated not only by the
people of Washington, but by the
Ex-Gov. D. R. Porter.
The friends of the Ex-Governor in
this county may feel anxious to know
where he stands in the present contest.

to the common danger and imperative
necessity of defending the government
and restoring peace to the country.—

THE Governor's proclamation is be
ing promptly answered by the people.
NEVER in the history of this country
did the administration of the Govern
ment stand in need of more earnest,
cordial and hearty support from its
loyal people than it does at present.—
Not even in the Revolutionary war
was it more essential for the success of
our arms, to stand by and support
those into whose hands the destinies of
the country was committed, than it is
now. To oppose the administration
at this crisis is to aid the Rebels, and
give them conntenance and support in
their traitorous schemes. If those
who arrayed themselves in opposition
to Washington and the Continental
Congress in the old times that " tried
men's souls," were justly stigmatized
as tories, and regarded as the worst
enemies of the infant Republic, are
not those who now oppose the powers
that be, deserving of equal reprobation
at the hands of all true and loyal men
Surely it is no time ibr splitting hairs
upon questions of mere secondary in
terest, or keeping up old political pre
judices while a powerful and inveter
ate enemy is at the gates of the capi
tal. If we would save the Union, loy
al people everywhere must act as ir
unit.—Without it all will be lost.
Opposition parties at proper times
are eminently proper. But when a
great nation is struggling to pi:eserve
its liberties, as happens to be the case
just now, they are sadly out . of place.
The opposition party in the first war
of Independence reaped an immortali
ty of infamy. The Opposition party
in the present \ - ar will be in - en more
execrated by all true patriots, in all
The Aggregate Quota of Troops to
be Raised by Each County.
The following table shows the num
ber of troops to be furnished by the
several counties. The quotas embrace
all the troops called for since the com

three months' men. The number as
signed to each county will be appor

and boroughs and precincts by the
Commissioner ; in accordance with the
enrollment; and he will credit each
township, precinct, &c., with the men

U f NITED WE STAND.—Says the Pitts
burg Chronicle: "It is high time that
the line of demarkation should be dis
tinctly drawnbetween the warm friends
and the open foes of the Union.—
Those who are the secret or avowed
abettors of the rebellion should mani
festly either remain neutral and quiet,
or else leavd the loyal North and go
Southward. While here, they have
no option but, to render a lawful obe
dience to the "powers that be." The
only obstacle to our complete and tri
umphant success in the present strug
gle obviously lies in the schemes and
dissensions which are sought to be in
troduced in order to divide our people
and paralyze their efforts to put down
this hell-born rebellion. So long as
we remain united and in effective har
mony, so long must we prosper against
foreign and domestic foes. But' as
soon as the demon of discord enters in
to our councils and efforts, then comes
trouble and weakness and despair.—
The man, therefore, of whatever party
he be, wrio at this time essays to fo
ment discontent and bad feeling; who
endeavors to stir up old political pre
judices; to divide those who be insep
arably united and to obstruct the ne
cessary measures of government, is as
much the foe of his country as if lie
were in the ranks of her open and
armed foes, and he should be treated as
such. The political passions, animosi
ties and prejudices which, under the
direction of artful and interested wire
pullers from both parties, are now
sought to be revived, should be avoid
ed at the present time as fraught with
exceeding peril to our common coun
THE secession citizens of Frederick
fed the rebel forces of Gen. If ill,
WAsumrrox, Sept. 5, 1862.
In these times, frankness is the best
policy. There is no use of concealing
from the public that which we con
stantly communicate, with each other.
It is possible to be an alarmist, and it
is likewise possible to be disingenuous
and unfair. The frank man will be
neither the one nor the other. I might
say that Washington is in danger, and
the remark might he so misunderstood
as to create a general panic among all
who do me the honor to read these
letters. I might say that Washington
is not in danger, and, in doing so, mis
represent the events that are seen
around us, the opinions that are every
where expressed, and the contingen
cies that are crowding upon us with
the force and truth of history. It will
lie difficult to find here, in Washington,
two men of similar opinions. They
differ as to the extent, of our danger,
the perils of our nation, the possible
movements of the Confederates, and
the probable means of defence now be
ing undertaken by Major Gen. APClel
lan; but every one agrees that we are
passing through a period that demands
(guidon, courage, calmness and candor.
Every one admits that this .August
month has witnessed what has been
the peril, and what might have been
the downfall of the capital. We know
that the enemy are stilt in front of us;
we hear their guns at Alexandria and
Bladensburg ; the sound of artillery is
as familiar to us as the ticking of the
time-piece. I see that in Pennsylva
nia you appreciate this danger, and
that your excellent Governor is calling
upon the people to use every energy
to meet and overcome it, and I am
glad to see the alacrity with which
your patriotic people respond to his
1 endeavored to describe in my let
ter of yesterday the exact position of
the Confederate army, as it is known,
and their probable movements in the
future. It is generally conceded that
they desire to invade Maryland. They
have not done so yet. The interve
ning clays have been well spent; de
fences have been erected ; the necessa
ry preparations have been consumma
ted, and it is now the general opinion
among men competent to judge, that
the attempt to invade has been virtu
ally abandoned, or, if it is carried into
effect, must meet with I,n inglorious
discomfiture. The danger of Pennsyl
vania, however, is generally discussed,
and I am told by citizens of your
State, that in the lower range of coun
ties every preparation is being made
to anticipate a probable raid on the
part of Jackson, or, at all events,
make any victory lie may obtain bar
ren and unprofitable. 11 Jackson at
tempts to enter Pennsylvania, it will
probably be by crossing the Potomac
at Williamsport, taking possession of
Hagerstown, cutting the Baltimore &
Ohio Railroad, and advancing in force
upon Chambersburg. The effect of
this would be to concentrate in Frank
lin or-Adams county every available
able-bodied man in the Middle Slates,
and to make the beautiful valley of
the Cumbeiland as memorable in his
tory as the romantic valley of the She
nandoah. Jackson might not take
Chamhersburg. Ile certainly could
not hold it; but ?It! could, ifsuccessful,
transfer the seat (Allynr from treache
rous Virginia to loyal Pennsylvania.
Hagerstown would be a strong milita
ry position, and, in the hands of an en
emy, might seriously embarrass Wash
ington, Baltimore and Philadelphia.—
The railroad from Baltimore to York,
the Baltimore and Ohio road, and even
our' own Baltimore, Wilmington, and
Philadelphia road, would become val
ueless as means of communication. It
would be the nucleus fur the Secession
sentiment of Maryland to rally around,
and would have the effect of prolong
ing the war far beyond its natural limits.
It is, as I have said before, a matter.
for congratulation to every patriot
that the free soil of the North has thus
far been spared the terrors of an inva
ding army; but we should not allow
the immunity which we have enjoyed
in this respect to prevent 11S fl'olll fully
appreciating the danger that may be
in btore for us, and taking every means
to meet it. When I see the apathy
that is sometimes manifested in the
North, I am often tempted to wish
that the guns of the rebel army might
be heard in the North, for i am sure it
would occasion such an awakening of
the Northern heart, such a manifesta
tion of Northerii prowess, and such an
exhibition of Northern strength, that
the rebellion would be swept before
our resistless power into the hell from
whence it came. If our people would
only think of this, and remember that
during the greater part of the rebel
lion its armies have never been more
than three days' march from the capi
tal of your State, they would concen
trate every energy, give every dollar,
and sharpen every pruning hook for
the mighty struggle that is to come.—
I am in hopes that the Northern peo
ple are beginning to entertain this
feeling now, and I welcome it as a
sign in these sad times.
Major General McClellan is making
every preparation for a speedy resump
tion of hostilities. Ile has issued or
ders to the troops to prepare them
selves for an instant advance upon the
enemy, and, if,we may judge by the
signs and preparation around us, the
few weeks to come will be as fruitful
of as great, and trust, more happy
events than those just passed. We
have a great army—an army of veter
ans—disciplined, experienced, and ea
ger to avenge the recent discomfiture
to their arms. We.have another great
army in reserve, now coming from the
north, and although not yet acquain
ted with - the duties of the camp and
the field, as brave and earnest as their
brothers who have fought On the Chick
ahominy, the Rapidan, and the Rappa
hannock. At all events, whatever the
policy may be, rest assured that there
will be no delay, n 4 tardiness, no unne
cessary waiting, uq trilling with our en
emy, or with the spirit of the people.
Whatever McClellan may have done,
even admitting that all the criticisms
made upon him aro - just, he is again at
the head of our• arinies. lie has been
placed there by the .:Idministration
and the chosen general of the Admin
istration. Ile possesses the confidence
of the soldiers. IL) is anxious to do
his duty and retrieve his fame. Let us
be silent and confiding. Let us hope
and pray that he may redeem the past
by making the future a bright and

WAsnixuToN, Sept_ S.—The intelli
gence received last night, and addition
ally confirmed this morning, of the oc
cupation of Frederick City, Maryland,
by rebel threes, naturally excited much
surprise mingled with indignation and
Frederick is about sixty miles from
Baltimore by the railroad line, and 40
overland from Washington by way of
Rockville ' Barnesville and Poolesville,
Mete are but limited opportunities
of obtaining information from that
point, almost all the intelligence corn
ing by way of Baltimore.
The Government authorities receiv
ed the news early yesterday evening
in a written or do;:umentory form.—
During last night immense bodies of
troops were in motion for the Upper
Potomac and elsewhere, and to-day the
military operations continuo. - Nearly
all the rebel troops have apparently
been withdrawn from oar front; cer
tainly none in large force remain.
Their next movement is a matter of
conjecture, but. precautions have been
taken to guard in certain quarters
against possible damage by them.—
There is no doubt that large reinforce

information. Nothing Ilas been hoard
from our troops at Harper's Uerry and
Martinsburg, who are cut off for rein
fbroements by the movement of the
enemy toward Frederick.
A gentleman who arrived here to
day, having left Frederick between 9
and 10 o'cloul; last night on horseback,
says that the rebel Mice there is esti
mated at 10,000 men under Sacksou.—
From his conversation with the rebel
soldiers, he derived the impression that
one of their objects is to destroy tho
Northern Central Pennsylvania Rail
road, and otherwise operate in that
State, and that they have ulterior de
signs on Washington and Baltimore.
Our info' mant was glad to leave the
neighborhood of Frederick without ca
