Norse Areas IN THE ARMY.—The statement
of a New York journal of Wednesdtiy that the
Provost Marshal General has prohibited the sale
of newspapers in the Army of the Potomac, and
ordered the agent back to Aqui& Creek, is with
out foundation. in truth. No prohibitive orders
relative to the sale of newspapers have been is
gar DISGUISE IT as they may, the policy of
the dominant party, upon which the war is now
conducted, is founded oh the doctrine of Sewird's
" irrepressible conflict," which denies that the
Union can exist part slave and part free ; and
they mean, if they can, to establish the truth of
this doctrine by forcing, at the point of the
bayonet, an eternal reparation of the free from
the slave States, or the annihilation of slavery,
and the subjugation of the slave-holding States
al the Federal authority under a centralized,
consolidated government, framed in consonance
With their radical dogmas. But for this fanati
cal and ruinous policy of the party in power, our
troubles might have been peaceably settled by
the adoption of the Crittenden Compromise.
Vindication of the 167th Petinsyl-
The Berks County Regiment of drafted Militia
has been very thoroughly vindicated - from the
false accusations of insubordination and cower- -
dice at the battle of Blackwater, that were made
against it by anonymous correspondents of the
New-York journals. In addition to the nu•
;onerous letters from eye-witnesses of the fight,
which have already appeared, we this week pre
sent additional testimony in refutation of 'these
chsrgts. The first is a General Order of the
commanding General, disavowing all official
knowledge of the author of the libels, and re
sponsibility for their publication. Next, we
have a letter to the New-York Times, from the
lion. S. E. Ancona, stating facts that in them
selves give the lie to the misrepresentations of
its correspondent ; and following this, is a let
ter from Adjutant Kiefer to the Philadelphia
journals, to the same effect. After all this tes
timony, we hope we shall bear no more in ridi
cule or disparagement of the 167th Pennsylva

LETTER FROM HON. S. E. ANCONA.
Hesunierom errs, Monday. Feb. 9, 1863.
Te the Editor of the New York Times
In your issue of the 3d . inst. appeared a letter
from your correspondent at Suffolk,in which--per
Nape unintentional—injustice was done to the One
Hundred and Sixty-seventh Pennsylvania Mili
tia, especially the officers.
That a new regiment After being expend for
over three hours to a very heavy artillery fire on
a dark night, should straggle considerably, and•
show an unwillingness to charge batteries before
daylight, is something that will not strike any
one as very strange.
As to the officers, the Colonel, Lietste Colonel and
Xajor all had their horse. ~hot under them; the
Colonel was mortally wounded by a shell, and
the Lieut.-Colonel temporarily injured by a se
vere contusion of the leg, produced by the wind
age of the ball that killed his horse. I have be
fore me a written statement, signed by General
Corcoran, and addressed to Lieut.-Colonel Davis,
now commanding tee regiment, in which the
gallant General says : " I find much pleasure in
testifying to the noble exertions of yourself, from
the time of your recovery from the contusion, as
also the Adjutant of the regiment and some other
officer, whose name I have not. learned, but whom
I believe to be the Major. By your exertions
the regiment was re formed in rear of the Sixty
ninth New York National Guard, and apparent
confidence restored, and during the day tberegi.
ment marched in its place in column; and I
think could have been depended upon."
The remark ascribed to a Sergeant, I am in
formed is an entire mistake. •
. . .
I trust you sill give thin s place in your col.
nmna a 9 an act of simple justice to the regiment
and its gallant officers. Very respectfully, &d,
S. E. ANCONA, M. C., of Penna.
LETTER FROM AD.TIITANT KIEFER.
TO the Editor of the Ledger:
But: We learn that all the Philadelphia pa
pers have copied certain charges, made by letter
writers in the New York Tribune and Times,
against thel67th - Regiment Pennsyliania militia,
in regard to the late engagement near here, and
in which the officers of the regiment are said not
to have done their duty. A sufficient answer to
this should be the fact that all the field officers'
horses were shot under them, and the Colonel very
severely wounded by a shell, all of which the
anonymous letter writers studiously avoid men•
tinning. But the injustice and. malice of the
whole charge, made by an individual who dare
not name himself, appears from the following
testimony of General Corcoran himself. In a
note signed by him, and addressed to Lieuten
ant Colonel Davie, he says: "I find much plea-
sure in testifying to the noble exertions of your
self, from your recovery from the contusion, as
also the adjutant of the regiment, and some other
officer, whose name I did not learn, but whom I
believe to be the major. By your exertions the

LETTER FROM HARRISBURG.
Gov. Curtin's liffssage—lie 4 a Candi
date for Re-election—The Democratic
Convesstion—Hon. Hiester Clymer.
.ffitasienuaa, Feb. 13, 1863.
It has occurred to me that a few lines about
the course of polities] events at the State Capitol
would not be uninteresting to the readers of the
York Gazette, as York county has of late years
furnished such remarkable Democratic majorities
as to entitle her to the appellation of the second
Berks. If she continues in the same ratio even
" Old Berke " will have to look to her laurels.
Governor Curtin favored the Legislature with
a special message yesterday on the subject of il
legal and arbitrary arrests, which is a decided
come-down from the position heretofore main
tabled by the supporters of this ungodly and
law-defying r oderel Administration. After giv
ing some whining excuses for not staying the
bands of Federal emissaries when they dragged
citizens innocent of any crime known to the Laws
and Constitution front the soil of Pennsylvania,
to be incarcera ted in Federal Dungeons, the
Governor ventures to reeommend that Congress
be memorialized to enact a law for the punish
ment of offences of a treasonable nature not
4imounting to high treason, and to grant. such
persons the privilege of a fair trial. Even the
semblance of a fair trial under the most scanda
loos alien and sedition law that this trebly inns.
mous Congress could enact, would be better than
that the liberty and life of citizens of Pennsyl
vania should be at the mercy of the President
and Secretary of War—but it would be a poor
substitute for the inalienable rights to which
every citizen is entitled. The existing laws are
sufficient to punish treason, and every shade of
treason, and no attempt has been made to enforce
them, because treason does not exist in tho yanks
of the Democratic party, and the exercise of ar
bitrary power is the shortest way for the Admin.
istration to glut their vengeance upon men whom
the law holds guiltless.
GovernorCurtiu's one,sage is a bid for popular
seppnrt. lie is a candidate for reelection He
dare not denounce the proceedings of the Admin
istration and he is afraid to endorse them. Ile
is laboring to build up a party that shall enable
him to hold on fur another three years—and
hence this attempt to compromise between arbi
trary power and popular rights. But he will
find that the people will not permit him to barter
away their liberties. by any such compromise.
The next Governor of Pennsylvania toast be a
man who holds fast to the reserved rights of the
States, and who will maintain at any cost the
rights and liberties of individual citizen's.
All eyes are now fixe . d upon the Democratic
Convention which meets in this place on the 17th
of June- neat. Nothing can prevent the over
whelming triumph of the Democracy—nothing
but the selection of a candidate whose record is
so bad that honest people cannot support him.
We have had enough of inefficient and traitorous
Democrats, and now want a man who we are
sure will do his wbo:e duty. In this crisis mere
personal preferences must give way to the public
good. We cannot afford experiment. We must
be perfectly certain of our man. It is not my pur.
pose to review the claims of the several candi
dates, but with your permission will refer to
one who combines every qualification, and whose
nomination grows daily more and more probably'.
—that man is Hon. HIESTER Curmint, Seriattir
from Berks. Mr. Clymer represents a county
which can lay greater claims to furnishing a
Democratic Governor to Pennsylvania than any
County in the State. He is an able speaker, an
honest man, a true Democrat and a courageous
patriot, thoroughly imbued with those principles
of constitutional freedom so ruthlessly assailed
by the Federal Administration. His record is
untarnished by a single stain—his character
without a blot. No Man dare lay aught to his
charge unbecoming an honest legislator and a
high toned gentleman. In the Senate he is the
recognized Democratic leader, and he has uni
formly opposed all those measures of legislation
that were tainted with fraud and bribery.
Mr. Clymer is comparatively a young man,
not being, from appearances, more than 40 years
old. He has employed none of the arta of the
political demagogue to secure the nomination ;
but has hosts of devoted friends who admire him
for his sterling qualities, and as the Democratic
candidate for Governor he would no doubt make
the same favorable impression upon the public
that be has already done upon all who oome in
contact with him. With Mr. Clymer as a candi
date we couhinot fail to carry the State by an
immense majority—and our victory would not be
a barren one. We would then have the satisfac
tion of knowing that a pure, courageous, honor
able and honest gentleman was destined to oc
cupy the Executive chair, and that he would see
the rights of the State and of her citizens main•
tained at all hazards. There would be no more
arbitrary arrests—no Federal emissaries would
be permitted to kidnap our citizens -no weak
kneed Executive to bow and cringe at the com
mands of despots—no usurpations of forbidden
powers; but every citizen of Pennsylvania would
feel secure in his birthright, knowing 'that the
Executive had the will and the courage to enforce
I do not mean any reflection upon other com—
petent and honorable gentlemen whose names
will be before the Democratic Convention. but
only to express the preference of thousands of
Democrats in every section of the State. Let
Hiester Clymer be nominated, and not only is
success certain, but we will be sure of a good
Governor and an honest Administration. Peo
ple will then refer to the Administration of the
present Executive as to a record of shame and

tioned by the President of the. United States;
that estimates for the payment, transportation
and subsistence of these troops had been sent to
