Thanksgiving Day in Pennsylvania,
Itutuisnuno, Oct. 21.,,-The Governor
has issued the following proclamation :
In the name and by the authority
of the Commonwealth of Pennsylva
nia, AnOrew Cgrtin, Governor of
the said Commonwealth,
WHEREAS, it }s a good thing to ren
der thanks unto God for all his mercy
and loving kindness; therefore,
I, Andrew G. Curtin, Governor of
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,
do recommend that Thursday, the 27th
day of November next, be set apart
by the people of this Commonwealth
as a day of solemn Prayer and Thanks
giving to the Almighty—giving Him
humble thanks that he has been gra
ciously pleased to ptoteat:our free in
stitutions and Government, and to
keep us from sickness and pesti,lence—
and to cause the earth to bring forth
her increase, so that our garners are
choked wjtb the harvest—and to look
so favorably on the toil of his child
ren, that industry has thriven among
us, and labor has its reward; and also
that He has delivered us from the
hands of our enemies, and filled our
officers and men in the field with a
loyal and intrepid spirit, and given
them victory—and that he has poured
out upon us (albeit unworthy) other
great and manifold blessings.
Beseeching Him to help and govern
us in his steadfast fear and love, and
to put into our minds good desires, so
that by his continual help we Lay
have a right judgment in all - things;
qud especially, praying him to give to
Christian Churches grads to hate the
thing which is evil, and 1,0 utter the
teachings of truth and righteousness,
declaring openly the whole counsel of
God; and most heartily entreating
Him to bestow upon our civil rulers
wisdom, and earnestness, and counsel,
and upon our military', leaders zeal and
vigor in action, that 'the fires of rebel
lion may be quenched—that we, being
armed with His defence, may be pre
served fi•om all perils, and that Ip
aftei• our people, living in peace 'and
qnietnegi, njay, from generation to
generation, reap the abundant fruits of
His mercy, and with joy and thank
fulness praise and magnify His holy
Giyen under my hand and the great
sell f the State, at Harrisburg, this
W*6116001 day of October, in the
year of our Lord one thousand eight
hundred and sixty-two, and of the
Commonwealth, the eighty-seventh.

Hear Three Democratic Soldiers Talk.
At a late grand Union rally at Chi
cago, General Prentiss, Colonel Lynch
and Captain Gregg, all of whom have
been prisoners since the battle of Shi
loh until within a few days, addressed
the immense audience. Gen. Prentiss
gave a long and deeply -interesting
narrative of the sufferings of himself'
and companions in captivity, and the
meanness and barbarism of the rebels
—more fully stated, but substantially
the same as that he gayp in his speech
at Washington.
General Prentiss gave his sentiments
on political matters, as follows:
Lest I may he misunderstood, let me
toll you Republicans, I am no Itepab
lican ; Democrats, I run no Democrat.
lam a soldier of my country. [Pro
digious cheering.] 1 hold in my hand
an Augusta paper, ono of some thirty
or forty others J have in my posses
sion, with articles similar to this one.
[Cries ,of "Read it," "Read it."] This
is the Augusta Daily Constitutional,
published in Augusta, Georgia. It is
the oldest paper i n the southern States,
the one which has the greatest cireula
gon, and is looked upon, next to the
Richmond Enquirer, as the organ of
the Confederacy. It is a studied ef
fort of these people to divide us here
in the North, to have the West separ
ate from the East. They continually
talk about this. They say, "We like
you Western men, for you fight better
than them cussed Yanaces; we know
we can't whip you, but we can whip
the Yankees two to one." This article
is headed " The Great West," and if it
hurts any of you, don't blame, me, for
you voted that I should read it.
"There is, however, evidently in the
West, and particularly in Ohio, India
na and Illinois, a strong opposition in
the present war upon the South. The
tone of the press m those States, the
public meetings, and the Democratic
conventions, all prove this goal:elusively.
This feeling does not display itself as
boldly opposed to the war per se, but
assumes the form of opposition to abol
itionism, coercion and sabjugation. It
would not be safe to exhibit it othoP
wise, for in that event tee individuals
giving expression to it would soon find
themselves incarcerated within the
walls ofsomo Yankee Pasille, and their
opposition thus speedily and effectual
ly crushed out. But by professing de
votion to the Union, the Constitution,
and the Administration of Abraham
Lincoln, they call organize thoroughly
for work, and thus secure a way to
triumph in the approaching fall elec
That article proceels to the length
of a column in the same strain, allu
ding—furl will - mention the 'names—
to Carlisle of Western Virginia, Vor
hees of Indiana, Richardson of Illinois,
and Vallandigham of Ohio. [Sensa
tion.] Their papers aro full of it.—
They look upon you tender-footed
souls as traitors to your country. Do
you want to help these men to murder
your brothers and break up this Goy

yen, lot us know it, and the Shiloh pri

you belong. We came home hilly de

We are going to 044 homes in this
State, and we will tell the Government,
the candidates, and the voters, how
we have been treated. It may be de
nied in some quarters. J. care not.=
We are determined to tell the fru*
Hero around me aro ninny of these
men, my comrades, Republicans and
Democrats, some of whom went south
as apologists for these men. Some
Missourians and slaveholders were with
me in prison. We all came home.—
Well, call us abolitionists if you please,
or anything else. [Applause.] I tell
you the slaves in the South are better
posted than the "butternut" gentry.—
Every little act of kindness that these
men received were from slaves.—
[Cheers.] We have come home ready
to use every power that God hath giv
en us, to put down this rebellion.—
[Cheers.] To take their property, to
take their negro9s,trikc everything.
[great and longcontinued applausb.]
' Lynch spoke v.ith great earnest
ness. We give a' sh'ort extract;
I hardly need tell you that:l have
always been a strong, uncompromising
Democrat. ' I hnave been an apologist
for the soatherri people. I pronounced
the 'stories of their erg cities to he grosg
fabrications. I Considered the Aboli
tionists and Republicans the enemies of
the Union. / will not say so now.
While I was confined in the Madison
prison the officers were allowed but
two rations poi; day, those rations con
sist;ing• of four Ounces of pork fiSid h
certain intintity of corn'or flour bread.
This bread was made of mdal*t}nd wit-
ter mixed and roasted. I6S , as first
roasted on one side and thdn ou the
other. It was very hard on the out
side, (laughter,) and very soft on the
inside. We used to pitch quoits with
these cakes. [Renewed laughter.]—
They pronounced that gentlemanly
treatment? These were the mon I
apologized for, the men I treated in a
gentlemanly manner at Donelson.
never suffered so much, however, dur
ing my whole imprisonment, as I did
when I arrived at Washington' and
found that there wet() 'men in the
North h'yiklathising with the rehels..L--
Th 6 rebels arc our open enemies. • We'
know where to find them. 'These
northern enemies are vipers. They
sting us and'we cannot find:them to
crush them. My platfornt is; I love
thy coutitry." I,
~aa you all' know,
have never been an AbolitiquiSt'.' I
have turned uegroes who. came into
my camp over to their rebel niiisters:
I cannot say that I like a negro now;
but if it should be necessary, to save
this glorious Union, would take a regi
iiient of niggcrs, and march into Dixie.
[lmmense applause.] Every party
should ho merged jut° one. There
should be no Republicans, no Demo
crats. Every man should sacrifice Ws
personal fbelings. I was opposed to
414rahatn Lincoln ; I am now opposed
to every ipan who opposes Abraham
Captain Gregg was equally emphat
ic. We give a single paragraph :
This war must be carried on differ
ently. This Union must and shall be
preserved whether the, "nigger" is
preserved or not. [lmmense applause.]
Why, the rebels spit upon your Con
stitution. I hear it said hp here, " you
musp stand by the Constitution." Why,
the rebels won't take that Constitution.
If you should hang Wendell Phillips
and all other Abolitionists to-morrow,
Jeff Davis wouldn't thank you for it.—
Why, we are all Abolitionists. [Pro
longed cheering.] I tell you, I've been
through the mill, and I wish that eve
ry sympathizer in the North had to go,
through the same mill. I wish they
were compelled to go over the tour I
have. You may take my head for a
foot-ball if they didn't change their
notions. If it were necessary to free
every negro in the Sout4 to save the
Union, I would do it.
A Judicial View of the Emancipation
Theophilus Parsons, in a letter to
the Boston Advertiser, says:
There are three (*notion& e9neern
ing the President's e r mancipation proc
lamation. One, has he a constitution
al power to issue it, as a civil, political
or administrative act ? - The second,
Wai it expedient ? The third, Has he
constitutional power as Commander-in-
Chief to issue it, at this time, as a mil
itary act ? These (potions are per
fectly distinct. One of the most com
mon and most fruitful pauses of error
upon all subjects is the mingling of
questions which are distinct in them
selves, but so near each other that they
confuse °spit other. Let us separate
these questions. I am sure that the
President has no power to emancipate
a single slave, as a civil, political or
administrative net. Was it expedient?
I Icavo this question to the President,
for he is honest, lie is capable; he has
considered the question long, carefully
and painfully, and in all the relations
in which it can present itself. How
ever wise I may be, or Judge Curtis
may be, on this subject, the President
must be wiser, or all rules of probabil
ity fail. As to the remaining ques
tions, I have not the slightest dqubt of
hie constitutional power as Clomman
der in Chief, tr, i this proclamation
as a military_net. 'lf lAalleelc, when
before Corhlth, haw() sept a force
a Lemke(' miles to catch and bring
into his lines a hundred negroes with
the wagons, horses, and provisions they
were bringing to Beauregard, the Pres
ident and Commander in Chief; sitting
in the center, with wider views, wider
necessities, and wider rights to meet
those uccessities, may, if he can, pre
vent the whole mass of Slaves from
laboring to feed the rebellion. 13.0 may,
if he can, by the danger of insurreetiOn,
or of starvation, or of loss of property,
dis4earten the rebels and drive their
armies home. To say otherwise, would
he to say that he might 4tyil. - e at re
bellion, but must be careful riot to
strike away its corner-stone. Can he
do it in fact? This question touches
the expediency of the measure, and
this I leat-e to him. But it does not
touch his inilitary right, to threaten it,
and to do it if he can.
A Rebel' General Abandoning the
[Correspondence of the Cincinnati Gazette.
Sr. Louis, Oct. 23.—The Republican
of yesterday morning contains a brief
announcement that Brig. Gen. Edwin
Price, son of Major General Sterling ,
Price, has resigned his commission in
the Confederate service. He was at
the headquarters of Gen. Curtis night
before last, and stated that ho consid

Man resigned his commission, and in
trusted it to Gen. Curtis tQ send thro'
the lines, to be forwarded to Richmond.
He announces his intention to go to his
home in Chariton, Mo., and take no
further part in the war. With an ap
pearance of full shiCerity, he tools the
oath of allegiance to the United States
in its strongest form. Those who
best know him are confident that he
will respect and observe if.' Like his

qualities of liencl heart, a'n ato held

underestimating the strength of the

that there are not less than 60,000 en

America, October 11, 1862.
DEAREST MOTHER :—Your kind let
ter reached me, and would have given
mo an unmingled pleasure but for the
announcement of poor Oapt —'s
death. How terrible for his sisters,
and for poor Miss —, who, when I
last saw her, sbowed me his carte de
visit, and half confessed they were en
gaged, although 'neiiher the Commo
dore nor her aunt knew or suspected
anything or the matter. Every per
son here, is in mourning, except my
self, and I only not so because.l can
not find materials, and hope soon to
be allowed to go North, as Gen.
has half promised mo passage under
the next'flag, of truce to some vessel
cf the Admiral Dupont's squadron.—
Our'little'diir/Vng is sadly in noel of
shoes, her only present foot covering
being little carpet slippers, with car
pet soles, made by myself. They do
very well while it is quite dry; but
the least shower keeps her within
doors, and she wears out nearly two
pairs each week, so that I a(n Con
stantly busy. Of tea and all other
comforts, we preserve only vague re
membrances; but food, thank God, is
becoming plentiful again, such as it is
—wheat, chickens, corn and pigs; and,
although it is admitted hero by all
that the rebellion has yet a sharp
struggle before it, t, is no longer
any hope (as I siuoeroly wish there
was) of its being starved into submis
sion. (Here follow some purely fami :
ly details.) •

You cannot think how bitterly the
North is ridiculed here, and all my ef
forts to defend it only end in mot:lift

who think otherwise have the best of

they would be fired upon if the people

They said they had not heard the or

to shoot tire prisoner. They then
amused thomselves by, pointing their
