To our Patrons.—Oandidatea for Office
It is important to the people that
the claims of candidates for office
should be known before the election of
borough and township delegates in
August next. That their claims may
be made public we throw open our
columns to the friends of all, free of
pathizing" friends of Jeff. Davis met in
New York on Monday, July 31, to
devise means for a fair and full defense
ofJeff. Davis and his associates, so that
whittever happens, justice may be
done. We have no doubt their idea
of justice extends so far as to let the
chief of the rebellion instigators go
scott free. Time, which is getting
mysteriously lengthy, will reveal how
the law looks at the subject.
Delegate Elections,
The Union men of Huntingdon coun
ty aro requested to meet at the usual
places of holding elections, in the sev
eral Boroughs and Townships of the
county, on Saturday, the 12th day of
August next, and elect two delegates
from each township and borough to
meet in Convention, at Huntingdon
on Tuesday, the 14th day of August
next, to nominate candidates for the
several offices of the county. The polls
will be open in the townships from 5
to 7 o'clock, and in the boroughs from
7 to 9 o'clock.

—The Savannah Herald's correspon

found the people had suffered much
from the war, and but little evidence

badly battered towns. People were
scarce, and money more :so. Darien
is a mass of ruins. At Brunswick there
was no business, and of people only a

such men as these that our forces have

There is no doubt that the Federal

by the great mass of the people who
have suffered from these brigands.

Captain H. J. smith.
The undersigned having been ac
quainted wilt the gentleman whose
name heads this article, from his boy
hood, and having learned that an at
tempt has been made to prejudice his
claims to a nomination for Treasurer
by alleging that he was not a citizen
of this county, bog leave tei correct an
error which might do him an injury.
Capt. Smith was born in that, part
of Huntingdon County, which after
wards became Blair. About the year
1849, he came to reside with his friends
in 'Walker township, and resided there
until 1858, when ho left temporarily,
and wont to Lock Haven,whore he was
engaged in kisiness until the spring of
1861, when he returned to McCon•
nelstown, and soon after enlisted as a
private in Co. C, 53d Mgt. P. V., and
rose to the rank of Captain on his own
merits alone.
No ono has a better record as a sol
dier, than Captain Smith. Ho 'is as
modest and manly us he is brave: And
feeling as we do an honest pride in his
character and claims, we intend to
stand by him, as he stood by his coun

FRIEND LEWlS:—Thinking a line
from an old friend might be acceptable
to you, and through you to your read

short epistle this morning.

ularly noticed.
Well, this "cruel war" is about over
and the brave boys who came at their
country's call are returning again to
their homes in peace. Thank God for
it. It is — a time hoped for and devoutly
prayed for by many a devoted wife,
mother and friend at home. Yes, the
was is over, the rebellion is conquered,
the country is saved. All honor to
the bravo boys who conquered a peace.
But what shall we say
,of the memory
of those who return not ? Those who
died that our country might live. I
am glad to see an effort making in old
Huntingdon county to put up a suita
ble monument in memory of the gal
lant dead. I hope they will succeed.
A similar movement is on foot to put
up a monument in our county. I trust
that in every county, in every town
ship, and in every graveyard in the
county where sleep the remains of a
single soldier of the Union Army, suit
able monuments may be erected that
our children's children to the latest
generation may learn to revere the
memory of those gallant men.
I am also pleased to see by the Globe
a disposition to honor the living by
electing them to places of trust and
profit; of course discrimination will be
necessary. There aro those who made
good soldiers who would not make
good civil officers. But with the great
moss of returned soldiers to choose
from certainly good men and true can
be found. Of course the public have a
right to choose their officerS from all
classes and should take none but those
who are honest and capable; but other
thinga being equal the returned soldier

bents have decided to stand out of the

the soldiers, I cannot just say; but I
hope their places will all be filled by
"true blues." The other, the County
Clerk, has allowed his name to be an

But I must close. Some of our old
time democratic friends took very lov

he commuted the sentence of the Chi-
cage and Indianapolis conspirators,
but since ho let Mrs. Suratt, that "in
nocent, pious woman," be banged,
they aro not quite so loving. I hope
he will neither be coaxed or flattered
from doing his duty. He has great
responsibilities upon him, and I hope
the people will sustain him in all pro
per measures to bring order out of
chaos that exists in the late rebellious
States. Time, patience and persever
ance, are all needed before we can ex
pect everything to be adjusted to the
now order of things. But, after all
Providence has, led us through, can we

The Richmond Election.
The following is the order of Gen.
Turner, which has been briefly alluded
to by telegraph, annulling the recent
municipal election in Richmond :
"Headquarters, District of "Enrico, 1
Richmond; Tra., July 28, '65. f
"Whereas satisfactory evidence has
been furnished at these headquarters
that, at the election held in the city of
Richmond on the 25th instant, for
municipal officers, voters were excluded
on the ground of having lost their res
idence by reason of their abscence as
soldiers in the United States army
during the rebellion, when no such
ground was taken as against soldiers
absent in the rebel army; and whereas,
with but few exceptions ; all of the of
ficers elected at said municipal election
have been prominent and conspicuous
in inauguratinr , and sustaining the re
bellion; and whereas the issue was - dis•
tinetly made and openly avowed at
said election as between those men
who had aided and abetted in the war
against the United States authority
and those who had with their lives de
fended the flag of our country;
"Therefore, justice to the thousands
who have fallen on the battle field or
by disease in their efforts to put down
this rebellion, and to those who are
now returninL , to their homes in this
district, after four 3 - ears of 'suffering,
toil, privations and dangers incurred
in fighting treason, demands that these
persons who were so lately con tribu•
tine all their efforts to sustain treason
and overthrow this government should
not be installed into office and intrus
ted with power.
Hence it is hereby declared that the
United States military authorities of
this city will regard the said munici
pal elections held in this city on the
25th instant as null and void, except.
ing only the election of the c:erk of
the Hustings Court; and each and

E LEWIS MOORE, ASSiStallt Adjutant
correspondent of the Pittsburgh Com
mercial records the following incident:
—"An atrocious case, illustrative of
slave holding barbarism was told by a.
crippled negro who appeared at the
office of the Freedmen's Bureau to-day
asking relief. This colored man said
he was formerly free and working for
wages in Maryland, across the eastern
branch. He went South in 1057, with
a Dr. Lee, for whom ho had been work
ing, persuaded by spacious promises of
higher pay, going first to Athens,
Georgia, and afterwards to Knoxville,
Tennessee. where Dr. Lee for a time
kept the Knoxville Hotel, and subse

In the winter of 186-1, Dr. Lee hired
him out to the rebel post quartermas-
ter at Jonesboro. After remaining'
eight or ten months he attempted to
escape to the lines of the national for
ces. lie got twenty miles away, but
was caught and taken back, when this
rebel quartermaster took him to.sur
geon Williams in charge of the rebel
hospital there, and ordered him to cut
off his feet and hands to prevent, as he
said, his running away again. Tho
doetor partially complied, amputating
both legs just above the ankle. Ho
loft the stumps undressed over night,
but finding him alive next day, said:
"What, you d—n nigger, are you alive
yet ? I intend to kill you." He then
had him placed in an ambulance and ta
ken to the hut of an old colored man,
where he remained until our troops
occupied the place.
This colored man brings vouchers
from white people corroborative of his
statement, which aro believed by the
officers of the bureau.

correspondent as truth, the conspira
tors who have gone to the Dry Tor
tugas must be about having an ex.
tremely brilliant future. The account
given of the paths of life laid ont for
each of the condemned appears to be of
the "flowery beds of ease" order.
Mudd is to be allowed to practise and
act as nurse, and will doubtless be al
lowed liberty and privileges, and we
may yet expect to hear of this most
philanthropic of men aiding the escape
of other criminals, tending -the sick,
and setting broken limbs. He will be
able to follow out his penchant for ma
king splinters and healing fractures,
and although it may suggest to him
the cause of his sea side residence, yet
still it will enable him to practise his
profession and have something to do.
Arnold, we aro told, will boa clerk,
and will derive "profit," whether pe
cuniary or otherwise we are not in'
formed, probably otherwise. Spangler
is to be a carpenter once more, and
O'Laughlin a "retired bummer," Thus
are this famous quartette comfortably
disposed of, and we earnestly hope
that even the New York _Herald will

Meeting in Behalf of Jeff. Davis.
NEW Y,oaK, Aug. I.—Tho Post pub
lishes a report of proceeding at a pri
vate meeting of friends of Jeff. Davis,
held in this city on Monday, to devise
moans for a fair and full defence of
Jeff. Davis and his associates, so that
whatever happensjustice may be done.
The • meeting was held at the rooms
of Mr. Carlos Butterfield, who was
present. At the suggestion of. Peter
Butler a committee was appointed to
raise funds for the object stated,and to
consult with Chas. O'Connor, coansel,
and to adopt other necessary meas
The following persons were named
as the committee : Mayor G. Gunther,
CArlos Butterfield, Theodore Martin
Douglass, and Clancy The Mayor
was absent, but sent his regrets and
assurances of his hearty co•opera.
Messrs. Surrogate, Tucker andLiv
ingsl one, of Mobile, were among those
present. Messrs. Culter, Tucker and
Livingstone were the principal speak
ers. They regarded the failure of the
rebellion as temporary. The spirit
that originated it still lives and by the
assistance of their friends at the North
it can he made successful in other ways.
Livingstone said Alabama would be
represented in Congress by none who
were not soul and body in favor of
Southern Independence.
That Mrs. Surratt's execution bad
excited the indignation of the world,
and that the Government dared not
trust Mr. Davis to a trial. Mr. Living
stone said, any person who regarded
the course of the South as treasonable,
would be looked upon as a mad man
or a fool.
Davis and Clay Meet for the First
Time — Changing of Hour of Prom
Fortress illonroe, July 29.—hardly
anything is spoken of hero save the
intense heat, and the military changes
which daily occur from the moving of
troops to their homes.
Yesterday, however, a little incident
transpired which will prove of interest
to 3 , 9nr readers. Mr. Davis, as you
are emirs, has been alloWed for sever
al days has the - privii4, - 9 of wa!!f!ng :
on the ramparts. An officer accompa
nies him, and a guard, armed with
muskets, follow some five a ten feet in
the rear, A similar indulgence is gran
ted Mr. Clay and under the same
restrictions. Care seems to have been
taken that they should not be out at
the same time, but last evening, prob
ably through inadvertence, they were
permitted to be out at the same hour,
and during their promenade they met.
It was the first friendly face, save
the surgeon's, that either prisoner had
seen for months, and the emotion
that rushed upon the hearts of both
may be imagined. Mr. Clay extended
his hand, remarking:
"Though we are not permitted to
hold conversation, Mr. Davis, I pre
sume we will - not be forbidden to
shake hands." •
The accompanying officers made no
objection, and the two gentlemen clas
pod hands with a favor and feeling
such as rarely attends this familiar
con nosy.
Mr. 'Davis' thin lips quivered, but
probably from his desiro to observe
scrupulously tho rules of his confine
ment, he tittered no word.
To4lay a rule was adopted of appoin•
tine different hours for the promenade,
and Mr. Davis walked alone this morn
ing at six. Mr. Clay will enjoy the
same privilege this evening.—Peters'
burg index.
OPPOSED TO 0 ATDS.-A correspond
ent, writing from Richmond, relates
.incident as follows :
Talking of oaths reminds me of a lo
cal joke which my pen cannot resist
recording. A modest young country
girl, on applying for rations to one o,
oar relief agents, a few days ago was
asked if she had over taken the oath.
"No, indeed, sir," was her terrified re.
ply, "I never swore in all my life."—
"But you must take the oath, my
good girl," said tho agent, "or I cannot
give you the rations." "No, indeed I
can't, sir," said the girl ; "mother al<
ways taught mo never to swear." The
agent mildly persisted, and the maiden
as pertinaciously refused all attempts
at persuasion, until, overcome at last
by the dreadful conflict between ne
cessity and her high sense of moral
duty, she stammered out, with down
cast lids, "Well, sir, if you will make
me do such a horrid, wicked thing,—
d----a the Yankees!
11 Touon SOLDIEH.-A young fellow
of Worcester, Massachusetts, named
E. P. Rockwood, a private in the 57th
Massachusetts, who was in the battle
of Cold Harbor, in Juno, 1864, had his
jaw bone fractured by a bullet, which
also knocked out some of his teeth;
another ball fractured his right shoul
der blade and lodged somewhere be
neath it; and a third went through his
abdomen. His comrades then hid
him in a hole where his body and head
were covered. from the enemy; but
while there ho got another bullet
through the calf of his leg, another dug
a groove through one shin, another cut
an instep, and another cut off one of
his toes. He lay in the hole all day
and then was taken prisoner and star
ved for several months. Now he is at
home well, and not lame.
