False serious oppos.ition,
PAwrius, 7 The Chester county Re,
publiegn &Deplocrat lies the following
upon the great Union Party of tosday.
The sentiments co•incide with our own,
and no doubt with those of every loy
al man :
"The Union Party, composed of old
Republicans and Democrats, cemented
together by a common inheritance of
devotion to the national Union, re
quires no new element of strength to
maintain its power, nor no extraneous
intelligence to enable it to govern the
country with wisdom. During the
last four years—a period calculated to
try the stoutest heart and the soundest
judgment—the Union party has pro
ved itself equal to the severest emer
gency, and having conquered rebellion,
has commenced; with a favorable show
of success, the reconstruction of the
parts of the Unior. into.one peaceful,
harmonious whole. Why endeavor to
sunder the bonds which hold this
great party together? Why try to
change its character to one of lesser
dimensions? Is it not now a truly na
tional party, possessed of national in
stincts, and ardently devoted to the
highest national interests 7 It is not
readily discoverable out of what ele
ments a new party can be formed, nor
why the party now in the ascendent

to it through good report and evil re:
port, while, in our judgment, it main
tains the integrity of the Union, the
principles of the national Constitution,
and devotes its energies to the wel

ple. It has already given to the coun
try a name higher than historic re
nown, to republican institutions it
character for stability beyond the pro
phetic visions of the past, and has
-shown to its enemies a record which
they read with dismay. Let it stand
where it is, and as it is, the preserver
of republican freedom, the defender of

How Grant got into the War.
The well known correspondent of
the Boston Journal, who writes under
the signature of Burleigh, thus relates
the story of Grant's entrance into tho
United States Army at the otitset of
the rebellion :
"Pour years ago this very month,
Mrs. Grant lived in her quiet home in
Galena,. Her husband was Mr. Grant
the leather dealer, a plain, modest re•
liable man, without much apparent
force, who attracted very little atten.
Con any way. The war had commen
ced. The flag had been shot away
from Sumpter, and shot out of a rebel
cannon at Memphis. Ono morning
Mr. Grant called on Congressman
Washburne, who resides in Galena.
He told Mr. W. that ho did not feel
right—that ho could not sleep nights
that he felt that ho was not doing his
duty. Washhtirne asked him what
was the matter. Mr. Grant replied,
"I am doing nothing for my country.
I have been educated at the nation's
expense; but hero I am at home doing
nothing. I don't know what to do.
I am no politician. I don't seem to be
wanted anywhere, yet I feel asif I was
fit for something, WI could only find
my place." Mr. Washburn() invited
his neighbor to accompany him to
Springfield, where an important con
sultation was to bo held at the request
of Gov. Yates. On the morning of the
fourth day, Mr. Grant called on -Mr.
Washburne's rooms, and said to him :
"Nobody knows me hero—there is
nothing for toe to do--I am going
home," "Hold on a day or two lon.
ger," said Washburne. The next day
an important discussion was held in
the council chamber. At Mr. Wash•
burne's request, Mr: Grant was called
in. He held an interview with the
State authorities for thirty minutes,
and then went out. As the door clo
sed, Gov. Yates cried out, "Good God,
Washburno, who is this man ? I have
learned more about troops in those
thirty minutes than I ever know in all
my life. All I can do for him now is
to put him on my staff. You go bomb
and raise a regiment, and I'll commis
sion him as Colonel." The thing was
dono. The rest of the story , the world
knows by heart."
Circular from Postmaster General Den
nison••-Employment for Disabled Sol.

Post Office Department,
TVashington, June 19, '65. }
Congress having by joint resolution,
approved March 3, 1865, declared
"That persons honorably discharged
from the military or naval service, by
reason of disability resulting from
wounds or 'sickness incurred in the
line of duty, should ho preferred for

and it being my desire to carry into

purposo of this resolution, it is earnest
ly requested . of all postmasters who
have occasion to appoint, clerks or
other employees in their respective
offices, that they give the preference

to -think of the bat - baron's treatment
these poor men received at the hands
of theireaptors and keepers. The pa
ges of history. give no instances of
such studied, systematic murdering by
piece -meal of prisoners of war. Their
only offense was that they were
caught fighting for their country, in
defense of free institutions and human
liberty. Stripped of nearly all their
clothing, they were kept all winter in
a filthy enclosure with no covering to
shield them from the inclemency of
the weather; and with barely sufficient
of the coarsest kind of food to keep
thorn in a dying condition during the
cold winter morithfii The few who
survived this to s rture,tell us no human
pen or words can d'estiiihe their horri
ble sufferings. But 'though the offer
was 'repeatedly made to give them
plenty of food and clothing, if they
would take the oath to support the
Southern Confederacy, DeWalt and
others spurned it, -prelering rather to
die as heroic martyrs to the cause of
the Union. To what severer test of
their patriotism and devotion to their
country could th6y . have been subject
