THE PRESIDENT'S ItILSSAGE.—We give
to our readers the comparatively brief
and comprehensive message of Presi•
dent Lincoln. The state of the coun
try is will delineated in the document,
and a better or plainer message was
never issued to the American—people.
The character of Mr. Lincoln is fully
evinced in his production, and his con
cluding remarks, which we particular
ly commend, evidence his inflexible
and indomitable energy in upholding
the right, and strongly intimate that
the war policy he has inaugurated will
not be deviated from in the least par
ticular. Slavery has received his un.
mistakable verdict of disapprobation,
and he now asserts that "in presenting
the abandonment of armed - resistance
to the national authority on the part
of the insurgents, as the only indis
pensable condition to ending the war
on the part of the Government, I re•
tract nothing heretofore said as to sla.
very. I repeat the declaration made
a year ago, that while I remain in my
present position I shall not attempt to
retract or modify the Emancipation
Proclamation; nor shall I return to
slavery any person who is free by the
terms of that proclamation, or by any
of the acts of Congress. If the peo
ple should,by whatever word or means,
make it an Executive duty to re•en-
Blave such persons, another, and not I,
mast be their instrument to perform
it." These are Mr. Lincoln's own
words, but we are positivo that. the
President will have no cause to "re
enslave" any persimeas the people have
Openly declared that slavery is a sin,
and emigres& will mako-an amendment
to the Constitution, in accordance with
the people's desire, forever prohibiting
and abolishing slavery from our land.
. Mr. Lincoln gives the people every
assurance that the war will go on and
shalt not cease on the part of the Gov
ernment until it shall have ceased on
the part of those who began it. He
has the people's confidence, and that
confidence he will not betray by op- -
cepting propositions for peace from a
rebel ruler, who has declared he will
accept nothing short of severance of
the Union, nor from rebel sympathi
zers in the north, who caress and ca
jole the Government only-to-sting•and

nation can rejoice that we
new have the right man in the 'right
place at tho right - time, and his
control all will go well. We again
commend the perusal of his message
by all our readers as they will learn
things in relation to oar country and
to the manly character of our Presi•
dent that they did not dream of before,
_Pr, THINS with the able editor of
the West Chester Republican & Demo•
crat,.tbat there are thousands and
thoniands of, men who voted for Gen.
McClellan, who now that the contest
is over, will fall into the support of
thie Government in its efforts to sup
press rebellion. Without criticising
their conduct in voting for McClellan
we wish to say of them that we believe
they earnestly and sincerely desire the
restoration of the authority of the gov
ernment over all parts of the country.
Then why should they not unite with
, dis in the support of the Administration
in'its efforts to accomplish this ? They
Will again find, themselves in compan
ionship with a vast number of those
with whom they have harmoniously
acted for years. They will find no
want of cordiality in those, with whom,.
during the same years, they have been
contending. They will not be called
upon to help a whig party, a Republi
can party, nor indeed a Democratic
party; but will bo united with Whigs,
with Republicans, with Democrats, in
a Union whose main pillars is One.
COUNTRY above party, and above ev
ery thing else that is human. This, if
we understand it, is the essence of the
democracy of Washington, olJackson,
of Douglas, of that democracy that
Bea -at the basis of, our Government,
whatever may be the name of the par
ty as such,. whose candidate occupies
the Presidential chair.
THE Richmond papers are jolly over
"reduced prices" of provisions. The
Whig goes into ecstacies of delight
over the prospect of a good dinner at
cheap rates. "Corn meal," it says,
"went off freely at $4O per bushel;
dreSsed turkeys sold at $l5 apiece;
and chickens, with the feathers on,
brought $lO a- pair; pullets, full size,
sold at $5 and $6 each; and eggs wore
only $7 per dozen.'
I oil I i
The city papers are filled with oil
land advertisements, and hundreds of
companies announce great openings
for immense speculations. In the
'great rush for oil stooks, men lose their
shirts and thousands will lose their
money. Some of the companies aro
good, while Thine out of ten will turn
out to be bogus. But money is plenty,
and as everybody wants to make a
fortune in the shortest possible time,
the bogus as well as the good corn,
'Junius throw their stocks into market
and the fortune seekers gobble up all,
good and bad. We may be mistaken,
but we think the great majority of
those who will hold stock on the first
of April next will wish they had never
been afflicted with the oil fever.
Look Out For Them 1
The Chicago Journal, speaking of the
conspiracy to burn New York, says :
Being forwarned, lot us be forearmed.

.Attempted Escape of Union Prisoners
The rebel papers have the follow
ing: On Thursday last a serious
attempt was made by the Federal
prisoners confined at Salisbury, N. C.,
to make their escape, wh:ch was rap
idly and effectually quelled at the ex
pense of considerable Yankee blood.
It appears that a plot had been formed
among the prisoners, of whom there
aro at Salisbury some 13,000, to over
power the interior guard of the en
campment, then break through the
lino of the parapet guard, and, after
securing all the arms they could, to
march through Western North Caroli
na into Tennessee, and make good
their escape. In the first part of their
programme they succeeded, The in
terior guards wore soon overpowered,
and two of the unfortunate men were
killed while resisting. They then at
tacked the parapet guard, who fought
bravely against the terrible odds, until
the alarm had been fully communica
ted to the garrison, and two pieces of
artillery were thrown into position
bearing upon the encampment. Two
of the parapet guard were killed in
their gallant defence. In good time
the artillery opened, and, after a few
raging discharges of grape and c•:,:;k
ter, the insurrectionists cried out. i;sr
mercy, and declared that•they would
make no further effort to get, away.—
By this time they were completely
surrounded with artillery and infan
try, and it is well for them that they
ceased their demonstration and sued
for mercy. In ten minutes more the
whole camp would have been one
scene of slaughter. As it was, about
forty were killed, and a large number
wounded. Thus a very foolish attempt
to escape from Confbderate durance
has ended. It will prove, ro doubt, a
lesson to prisoners in the South. But
for the coolness, and it may be added,
the consideration, of the officers com
manding the garrison, the punishment
inflicted upon these misguided captives
would have been far more serious, if,
indeed, it had not amounted to the
annihilation of the entire body.

all the little boys pointing their fin

you like your negro brethren for sob

wid them, ha, ha, ha." They marched
us to their slave-pen and put us in
with the negroes. Sonic were sot-.

Provost-Marshal word that we wished
to see him. He came, and after con

When we arrived there, there were
15,000 prisoners, but by the middle of
August, the number was swelled to
32,00 u, all eonfitied in a' space oceupy
ing about 18 acres, with a swamp of
some 3 acres in the center, which could
not be used only as a place of filth
and excrement. The average number
of deathafrom the let of June to the
last of July, was'loo per day, making
about 6,000 during the month of Au
gust; and up to the 13th September,
the number of deaths amounted to
the enormous sum of 5,587 ; from the
13th Sept. to the 29th Oct., 1,801;
making a sum total of 13,388 poor hu

whose object was to rob the now pris

did not slop short of taking life. This
led to the organization of a vigilance
committee, afterward called "Police

taken out, tried by a jury of twelve

death, by hanging by the neck until

truly a sorrowful sight to see six fel
low-beings sw lug from one scaffold at
the same moment. But few sympa

crowd. All were satisfied that they I

I.D. GLOBE—Sir :—To_ day our mail
arrived at team, bringing welcome
letters from home to friends in the ar—
my, and also bringing those ever wel—
come visitors, our Country Papers.
In the columns of the Monitor of the
10th inst., is one column con taini ng the
summary of news for the past week,
but most of our soldiers' here call it
the summary of fiilsetioods, for in its
news trout this valley it gives an ac
count of a retreat not known to the
soldiers of this army ; as it appears in
the columns of that paper it might be
called an inglorious- retreat, or a de
moralized army on It run. It says
that on election day, Gen. Sheridan
was at Winchester and had been very
sick, and that news was brought to
him that a large three of the enemy
had passed around our flank and was
moving on Winchester and that Gen.
Sheridan rode down to Cedar Creek
arid ordered a retreat, and that on
Wednesday morning at daylight the
retreat began, amidst falling torrents
of rain, and the roads were in such a
condition that our artillery and trains
could hardly be brought along, and
that many wagons broke down and
had to be abandoned. It is true that
on that day Gen. Sheridan's army did
fall back some nine miles. hut as to
Gem Sheridan being at Winchester
sick, and coining to us scared and giv
ing us so short notice is altogether a
mistake, Jim we were given dud notice
to be ready to move at 10 o'clock,
which is far from being„just ut day—
light; and in place of leaving amid
torrents pf rain, and muddy roads,
we left Under it shiningiiiitn, With stilen
did dry roads fot our artillery
and - ivagons.. .And
_as *to the number
of wagons abandoned . , we can tell,
for-our Brigade was in the rear of the
moving column, and the only broken
down wugon we. passed' was a Sutler
waspn : with a broken wheel, and it
was soon put in running order, and
fell in s.l' the rear of the train, and
that evening we did go into camp and
are still lying in it. But the news in
that same column goes on to say that
the next day amid the rain we again
resumed our retreat through Winches—
ter towards Harper's Ferry, being at—
tacked on the way by tfir , enemy, and
finally by coming to a halt on the
i.eastern bank of the Opequan where
it now lays, leaving the valley in the
hands of the enemy; but the next
day we did not move, did: not go
through Winchester, did not see the
Oprquan, nor was not attacked by the
enemy, nor did not leave the valley in
the hands of the enemy, unless it calls
Sheridan's Union army Robs. fur—
ther says that Guerillas are so numer—
ous along the route ofour supply trains,
and attack our trains so frequently
that the route will have to be abandon
ed. Our rations come regularly, they
have not been once behind since we
came in the valley, and we do not of
ten hear of au attack on the train,
and if it we - c the case, we would
know, for our Brigade is ono of the
train guards, from Lem to Martins
burg. And for the inforMation of
those of your readers having friends
in this army, you can tell them that

Reilifbrcements lately received are
being vigorously drilled, and mingled
with veterans, they rapidly acquire
veteran precision of movement.
All former architectural etforti have
been eclipsed in' the construction of
our present quarters, and the camps
have an air of genuine neatness, su
peradead to real comfort.

Deserters, singly, or in, squads of
two or three; come in, daily. Their
dress exhibits considerable variety,
but they are, for the most part, chili
fortahly clad. We get rebel papers
occasionally. I saw the Richmond

It is a smutty-looking half sheet,
reeking with venom, and evidently

Nicholas Holmes, a New York
sharpshooter, has reported, by letter,
•to his company.. Nick was captured,
in this vicinity, on the 19th of August,
countrymen, partners in distress, was
taken to Salisbury, North Carolina,
and remained there for some time in
durance vile. ills quarters not being
to his taste, he vacated them, without
warning. He was accompanied by
another "yank,'.' who had twice before
unsuccessfully attempted to change
his base. Atter a month's travel and
many escapes. they reached the Union
lines, and arrived at Knoxville, Tenn.
They acknowledge the friendly aid of
the negroes, who fed and directed
them, and never deceived them.
John Early, of our company, has
written to Jimmie McKinstry, (rein
Annapolis, announcing his arrival at
that pitme,___fr_ota_A, prision, or,
more properly, pen. • His letter con
tains the sad intelligence that a num
ber of our boys have perished, at Au
dersonville. The officers have kindly
furnished inc with a list of those men
tioned in the letter, and the counties
in which they belong,
members of our
company who died at Andersonville.
Ot Huntingdon county, Samuel L:
Foust, died Nov.. 14th, and Thomas
M. Appleby, Sept. 22d. Of Mifflin
county, James Cowden and John
Hartley died, dates not given. Of
Perry county, John Burtnet died, Sept.
2d. Of Bedthrd county, Ephraim. F
Barnet died in August.
The disease to which the death of
these poor boys is attributed, is scu:—
vy of the bowls, produced, evidently.
by ivant of proper tood. The'atroui—
ty of such treatment renders it hard
for us to cherish any feeling, of lenien
cy towards its authors. It might be
wrong, but if oar regiment could
march into Andersonville this morning,
no grayi:aelt who stands guard there,
would ever stand guard again. Early
advises the boys not to be taken, as it
is better to be killed decently than to
fall into the hands of such wretches.
Since I began, to write, three rebel
deserters have passed our camp. Ono
was dressed well enough, another had
a blanket in lieu of a coat, and the
third wore some kind of cape, which
had evidently been diverted Irmo the
use contemplated in its original con
struction. • Two mom papers have
come in. th 3, Richmond Despatch, and
the Sentinel, both of Nov. Both.. They
have no information of Sherman's
movements. Probably the news from
him is suppressed.
The weather for some time has been
the most pleasant that could be desir
ed. - To-day is smoky, and we look
for a storm. If we are .to have bad
weather; we wish it to firld'us in camp,
and not to come on us during a move
ment. Therefore, many wish for im
mediate foul weather, so as to put a
quietus on active operations.
