THE RIGHT MATERIAL.
We are glad to see that our Democratic
friends in the different counties of the
State have in many instances selected their
ablest men to represent them in the ap
proaching Legislature. HOPKINS of Wash
ington, KAINE of Fayette, and PERSHING
of Cambria are men who would do honor
to any constituency. They have the cour
age and brains the times demand, and will
meet the high expectations of the party.
REMOVALS FROM OFFICE-REPUB
Notwithstanding the 'No-Party' teach
ings and proclivities of Republican politi
cians, the Guillotine at Washington still
numbers its daily victims. Among the
last of the decapitated is our neighbor.
WILLIAM C. LINDSEY, Esq., late a Clerk
in the Patent Office, who parted with his
official head but a few days since. No
charge of incompetency or neglect of duty
was brought against him; Democratic
principles and affiliations constituted the
"head and front of his offending ;" and fur
these he received peremptory "leave to
quit." Soon after the breaking out of the
Rebellion, and while the Capitol was
thought to be in immediate danger of as
sault, Mr. LINDSEY relinquished his post
and repaired to the field as a private in one
of the District Companies, and remained
in service until the term of his enlistment
expired. As he had afforded high proof of
his patriotism, and as he had discharnd
the duties of his official position with dis
tinguished faithfulness and acceptability.
he was restored to his old place. But this
tolerance of a Democrat was short-lived,
for in a few weeks Mr. LINDSEY received a
"furlough" which is likely to last till the
incoming of a Democratic Administration.
So much for the spirit and practice of the
men who talk so glibly and persistently of
giving up "party" for "country." Such
hypocrisy is too transparent to require
comment, and all this "No-Party" prattle
is a delusion and snare. We are sadly
mistaken in our estimate of the public in
telligence, and in our deductions from the
result of late elections, if the specious soph
istry,of our opponents on this subject does
not end in NO Republican PARTY.
The Fair of the Jefferson Agricultural
Society, held on Thursday and Friday last,
was largely attended; and, barring the
unfavorable weather, was a highly satisfac
tory and creditable exhibition. The dis
play of agricultural products, stock, and
useful and fancy articles, was unusually
large, and attested the interest of the com
munity in the laudable objects of the So
Our fellow-townsmen, BENJ. CAMPBELL,
sen., Esq., and ANDREW WILSON, Jr., have
just returned from a visit to the Army near
Washington. They spent several days in
camp, and found the Greete County boys
in high health and spirits, and "eager for
the fray." The strictest discipline prevails
and our forces are kept in constant readi
ness for an engagement.
THE TRUTH, WELL SAID.
The Chambersburg Spirit truly and forci
bly says every Democrat, unless self-inter
est blinds him, must see that by standing
by the Flag of his Country he is no more
under the necessity of endorsing Abolition
ism or Republicanism than he is of embra
cing Spiritualism, Agrarian, or Free-Love
ism. He must indeed be a sorry sort of a
Democrat that can be made to believe that
he cannot perform his whole duty to his
country unless he abandons Democratic
principles, and joins hands with Republi
cans to save their sinking party. The Dem
ocratic party, with the exception of about 12
years since the organization of the Govern
ment have controlled its affair:•, and every
important question of govern me t,tal poll , y,
foreign and domestic, has been sett ~1
established by the Democratie party. 1 o be

THE RESULT IN THE STILTE I
THE OLD PARTY " STILL LIVES !,,
"The Good Time Coming !"
Enough returns have been received from
the various legislative districts of the
State to justify the belief that the Democ
racy will have an efficient working major
ity in the next House of Representatives.
The people have had their "sober secon d
thought." and the doom of Republicanism
is sealed and its epitaph written. "Thus

are to assume, what new-tangled creed
they will promulgate, and what new-fau
gled organization is to supplant the Re
publican party, "let time and chance de
termine." We shall doubtless have some
thing rare and startling.
We are indebted, in good part, to our
neighbor of the Washiayton Examiner for
"a condensation of the returns" thus far
received from various parts of the State:—
' Allegheny County.—The entire .Re

exception of Blackmore. Democrat,
for Treasurer, and Dr. Gross. Demo

j Two of the Assemblymen on the
Union ticket, Nathan Wowley and
Abraham Peters, are Democrats. and
the other two Republicans.
Lyeoming County.—Armstrong and
Chatham, the 17nion candidates, are
elected to title Legislature. Arm
strong is a Republican, and Chatham
a Democrat. The balance of the
Democratic ticket, with two excep

In the Senatorial district composed
of the counties ofLycoming, Clinton,
Union. and Centre, Johnson, Repub
lican, has a majority of about 300 in
Lycoming. 600 in Union, and 100 in
Clinton. Centre is reported to have
given 1,000 majority for Blair, Dem

Northampton County.—The entire
Democratic ticket is elected by over
1.300 majority. The vote was small,
and the election attended with no ex
citement, otherwise our majority
would have been nearer 2,000.
Chester County.—The official vote
is as follows : President Judge—
Butler's ( Union) majority over
Hemphill (Independent Union,) 3,863.
Associate Judge—Bailey's (Union)

Union and Snyder.—The result of
the election for President Judge in
the district composed of the coun

the result. The republican tickets
are elected in Union and Snyder:
Franklin County.—The Union tick

Union ticket. James Nill, (Union,)

a majority of 700—a Democratic
gain. Chapman has 2,000 majority

York County.—The Democrats have
carried their whole ticket in York

A. Hiestand Glantz is elected to the
Senate, and two Democratic Assem

WAYNESBURG CARRIAGE FACTORY.
We dropped in, the other day, at our
neighbor DOUGHERTY'S Carriage Factory on
Greene street, and were so well pleased
with the style, appearance and substan
tial build of his vehicles, that we bought
ourselves a Buggy, and a snug one at that,
(on credit, of course!) His work is ele
gantly finished, and compares favorably
in all respects, with any we have ever in
spected. He manufactures Carriages, Sul
kies and Sleighs, as well as Buggies, and
sells at less than Pittsburgh prices. Be
sides, "Bon" is an honest and obliging fel
low, and deserves encouragement. Such
of our friends (and, from our late experi
ences, we think "their name is legion,") as
need Buggies, or anything in his line,
would consult their own interests not less
than "Boa's" and ours, by giving him a
call, and an daily one, too.
[P. S. Our immediate circle and the
"rest of mankind" will please take notice
that, while we speak to our poor acquain
tances as usual, our opinion of Buggy
borrowing has undergone a material change
since our late purchase. Whatever we
may have thought of that sort of thing
heretofore, we are now satisfied it is highly
disreputable, and "our set" must either en
tirely eschew it in future or drop our name, at
the first roll-call. We'll have none of it,
gentlemen—we "neither bqrrow nor lend."
Of "critter" borrowing we have but little to
say at present. It will require a little
time (say two weeka,) to mature our eon-
Yietiolle ea that subject.]

PENNSYLVANIA ARMY FRAUDS.
Messrs. Benjamin Heyward, Jacob Fry,
Jr., C. F. Abbott, Caleb Cope and Evans
Rogers, the commissioners appointed to
investigate the alleged frauds in the sup
plies furnished to Pennsylvania volunteers
in April and May last, have at length made
their report. The report proper, together
with the testimony, is very voluminous.—
With respect to the operations at the Gi
rard House, the commission found no evi
dence of fraud. Of the "blanket transac
tion" the Commission say that "great and
just complaint was made," and very sharp
ly censure one case where the blankets
were purchased at prices ranging fromsl,-
50 to $3 per pair, and charged to the State
at $3,50 realizing a profit to the contract
ors of $6,700. In the articles of under
shirts, stockings and caps, from the sam
ples presented, the commission inclines to
think that the State was charged very full
prices, at the same time perhaps not exhor
The Commission report, in general, "as
the result of their investigations, that they
have found instances of ignorance, of in
competence, of sharp dealing never praise
worthy, and here eminently disgraceful, of
bad appointments, which, although under
the peculiar circumstances of the times to
be expected, are none the less to be con
demned; hut, with the exception of one
single instance, which will he found in the
accompanying evidence, they have detected
no fraud nor attempt at fraud either on the
part of any agents connected with these
transactions, nor on the part of the author
ities at Harrisburg."
As to the censures visited upon Govern
or Curtin on account of the scandalous
transactions of his agents, the Commission
ers are unmistakably emphatic. They
say : "In reference to the transaction which
has now passed under examination, it.can
not for a moment be supposed that there
were not men in Pennsylvania, whose
services could have been commanded, and
who by education and ability, were
equal to the occasion that had arisen.—
The appointment by an executive, from
personal or partisan motives, of incompe
tent agents to offices of gnat responsibility,
is, at all times a great dereliction front
duty, never more so than in great public
emergencies, when the disasters resulting
from the ignorance or incompetency of the
agents, for whose appointment he is re
sponsible, will inevitably incite suspicion
of fraud, and return home to the Executive
in humiliating chafes of collusion." The
authority of this commission extended tic
further than inquiring into the 5500,000
first appropriated by the Legislature, and
it is to the persistent efforts of the inde
pendent press that their appointment may

For the Messenger
CAMP LAFAYETTE, UNloNrowx. Pa.,
October 15th, 1861.
EDITORS MESSENGER:—Again I transmit
to you a few lines relative to events trans
piring in "Camp Lafayette," and particu
larly in the Quarters of the " Invincibles."—
Our company moved from the town on
last Friday, and now are regularly en
camped in the Fair Ground, and without
egotism, I can say that we occupy about
as neat quarters as the Regiment can
boast. Our company now numbers forty
odd men, and Capt. penEit is expected to
return from "Little- Greene' in a day or
two with a large number of recruits. So
far as I can learn all of our "Wye" are in
good health and spirits, and desirious of
our company and regiment filling up, so
that we can be of some service to "Uncle
Our duties now are not very onerous,
leaving us much time for reading, writing,
and recreation, and I am pleased to state
that a vast majority of the men, not only
in ours but other companies, employ it
properly. We, and the same can be said
of other companies, usually drill twice per
day,--averaging about an hour each time,
though some companies occupy as much as
four hours in drilling. besides this drill
ing of the companies, at 4 o'clock each
dry, "Regimental Parade" comes off, con
ducted by Col. HowELL and Adjutant
STEWART, in which all the companies join.
This lasts about an hour, and is highly
relished by the soldiers, and very frequent
ly is largely attended by the citizens.—
At our "parade" yesterday there were
about 360 men; to-day, somewhat up
wards of that number. There is a greater
number of men in Camp than this, but
many are now out on furlough.
On Sabbath last, was preached the first
sermon as yet listened to by our company
in Camp. I did not understand what the
name of the minister was who conducted
theservices. His subject was the analogy
between the christian warfare and the mil
itary. He was listened to with good at
tention, both by officers and soldiers, and
many a head was bowed reverently as the
man of God lifted his heart in prayer and
praise to the Giver of every blessing
A rather serious accident happened to
day to a soldier of Capt. Hort:i's company.
An elk had been kept along with some
deer in the encampment, who had the
vicious propensity of attacking any one
who came near him. The man spoken of
was crossing the enclosure inside the track
in which these animals were grazing, when
the elk took after him, and before he could
reach the fence, overtook him, striking
him with his antlers in the thigh, and
goring him to the depth of three inches or
more. He was finally driven away by the
soldiers on guard, and the man carried to
town and placed under the care of a physi
cian. I would mention R. A. SAYERS, of
our company, as acting his part well in
this affair, rushing forward and bayonet
ing the infuriated animal, and thus reliev
ing the prostrate man. Afterwards the elk
was shot dead by the soldiers with revol
Another occurrence worthy of notice
happened on last evening. Two men from
Capt. John Morris' company in a melee
with the darkies of Hayti, got their heads
seriously cut, but are now recovering. As
to the cause of the fight various rumors are
afloat, and, at present, I would not pre
sume to state h ow it did occur, not know
ing all the facts in the case. The compa
ny to which these men belong swear ven
geance to the "niggers." lam pleased to
say that none of the "Invincibles" were en
gaged in this affair. The names of the
two men hurt are Thomas Roseberry and
Generally I would say that good order
prevails in our Camp. Swearing, drinking
and card-playing are not near so preva
lent here as might he expected, and he that
wishes to be virtuous can be so here, as
well as in the peaceful village.
To-day we were greeted by the sight of
familar faces which made our hearts glad.

enough to make a man sick and uncoutfi triable, anti
Unfit for the performance of any of the ditties of life.
This unhealthy state of the system very olten ends in
The circulation of the blood is conducted in this
manner: The heart sends the vital cm rent down thro'
the arteries, it passes through the flesh, taking up all
impurities in its progress, then the stream of blood
flows backward through the veins and passes to the
liver to be purified. It is impossible to cure consump
tion, scrofula, scarcely ally other kind of ulceration,
while that important organ. the Liver, is diseased. It
is fir that reason that regular physicians rarely cure
consumption. They usually begin their treatment
with the use of some cough medicine, the base of
which is morphia or opium in some shape, which locks
up the liver. instead of relaxing the Sc, retions, giving a
tone to the stomach, at producing a healthy flow of
DR. SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SYRUP,
Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills,
will strengthen the system, purify the blood, and ripen
and heal ulcers on Vie langs.
In tu: emulous consumption. where the' stomach and
liver is gene. ally in a inter:tidy healthy condition. the
Putman,: Syrup alone will rout out all impurities of
The blood, and restore the patient to health, if the
cavities in the In Itg.4 are not too deep. Rot where con
gumption originates, as two-thirds of the cases do in
this section of the country, sympathising front a torpid
liver or disordered stomach, it requires the Seaweed
Tonic and Mandrake Pills, in calm-Thai, to bring
thorn in action- then the Putmonie Syrup seems to go
or desolvc into the blood, and thus throw out all im
purities; then consumption and scrofulous diseases
nnut yield to those medicines if properly taken. They
ha ve c u re d thousands, and .riter thousands are now
being cured by them. SCHENCK'S MANDRAKE
PILLS are daring more to regulate the stomach and
liver than any other medicine invented. Thousands
are using them now, in this city :aid elsewhere, and
every one is astonished at their good effects. When
the diseased state of any part of the body reunites
purgatives. these Pills always reach the seat of the
disease. They are as harmless as bread, but fir Inore
powerful than a atom& or any other mineral poison in
their curative eff: os. Almost every day some person,
who has been cored by them, canes to Dr. Schenck's
office and relates the wonders they have performed.
FrOILISMIIe persons they have expelled large worms;
from others morbid matter, and from others again,
In retrain cases, persuns who ball been ill for a long
time with diseased liver—shin shallow, tongue coated,
bowels costive, breath offensive, /kr., were restored to
health and the perfect eujut meat of lite, by .he use of
this medicine. Some WM, were thus relieved had be
come so dull, drowsy. or lethargic that they scarcely
had energy enough to move hand or foot.
In such cases, the ailuomt is often caused by worms.
ISy usmg sCIIENCK'S .%1 AN DRAKE PILLS„ the
stale bile and cumulir fritter much constitute what
are called Ile "worms' beds" are worked ott and the
worms themselves pass nit' with them. Some weeks
ago a lady told Dr. Schenck that she had taken the
Pills for liver complaint, but to her surprise, the medi
cine brought away several worms, each about ten
inches in length.
An old gentleman, of Baltimore, who had been in a
wretched condition for a long time took the SEA
WEED TONIC and MANDRAKE PILLS, after which
he passed thousands of small worms (ascarides,) and he
id now perfectly well.
A lady came to Dr. Schenck at the Marlborough Do
te!, Boston; she was supposed by her physicians to he
afflicted with tape worm, She had severe pains and
sensation of something moving and twisiing inside of
her. These feelings, at times, almost threw her into
convulsions. It would creep up into her throat and
appear to bite; the only way to quiet it was to drink
milk, when it would settle down and go to sleep. She
would have to takes quart to bed with her every night
for that purpose. She was very costive, skin yellow,
and dried up to a mere shadow. Dr. Schenck gave
her four MA NDRAKE PILLS every night for a week,
and the SEA-WEED TONIC accordMg to the direc
tions, which only moved the bowels slightly onee a
day, and which in ordinary persons would have phy
sicked severely; but it sickened the animal, and
she found she did not crave arty more , milk. At
the end of a v.eek Dr. S. gave her a double dose, say
eight or ten Mandrake Pills, and soon after she passed
a large quantity of mucus and slime, in which was im
bedded a large lizard. Front this time she began to
recover, and is now perfectly well. This shows what
can be done with proper medicine and proper treat
ment. Any person that imagines that they 'have got
tape-worm, or ally other kind of worm, if they will
take sufficient Mandrake Pills every day Mr a week or
ten days to relax the secretion, but not to purge, then
take a dose large enough to physic severely, it willear
ry off all morbid matter in t h e system, and if nothing,
of the kind should be there, it will cleanse the system,
and leave the patient in a healthy condition
