TEE PEOPLE'S CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT,
HA 8188 - UR% PA
Nvening Jahuary 1864.
NOTICE TO OVESCRIBERS IN THE CITY
I h ave appointed Mr. J, :B. Zimmerman
sole agent for the "Dam Tararousm " in this
city. He will purchase his papers at, the office
hereafter, and serve them through an addition
al force of carriers, in every part of the city.
As he will be obliged to pay CASH for all the
papers received at the office, it will be necessary
for him to collect his money weekly. Mr. Z
is also authorized to collect moneys now due
for the Darrx in this city, and pur friends will
oblige me by settling with him -immediately.
Harrisburg and the Draft.
After delaying the matter much longer than
all the other cities, the people of Harrisburg
have at length moved in the businees of enter
ing into some arrangements by which the draft
may be avoided, and our quota of troops raised
without a resort to conscription. At a late
meeting of Council, a proposition was made to
secure a local bounty of $2OO, which sum was
to be raised by a loan on the part of the muni
cipal authorities. By this means, the bur
dens of the conscription will be equalized in, a
manner among those who would have been
compelled to boar, as individuals, the main
labor of service in the ranks of the army. Oi
course any appropriation which the city fathers
may make, will not come out of the capital or
the property of the city, but from the hard
earned pay of the laboring men thereof, as
property holders will be most likely to add every
penny otthe increased tax to raise this fund
their tenants. We mention this fact to
show that the masses have a right to ask Coun
oF to make this appropriation, as -it is merely
granting to the city the right to"disburse money
which in reality must be derived from the
sweat stained earnings of the laboring men and
the mechanics. Hence, we repeat, the people
have a perfect right to ask this appropriation.
It is only a movement to equalize the burdens
of the war among the toiling masses, and to
secure among the heads of families of the labor
ing men, by combination as it were, that which
Individual capitalists possess in their wealth.
We have frequently insisted, and we now
repeat, that the of the war have fallen
thrice more heavily on , the masses of the popu
lation of the city of Harrisburg, than that of
any city in the Commonwealth, or indeed of
any of the citieslakile Middle or Eastern
-States. For three in Weeks, the,; people of
Harrisburg were actually compelled to feed
from five to'f;an thousand men. Those troops
were mustered out of service in 'our midst, and
left without pay, to shift as best they could
until the paymisters were- ready to disburse
what was due them. They were without shel
ter and without subsistence. In this dilemma
our own people were compelled to receive and
feed these men at their own tables. From
time to time, this state of affairs was repeated,
if not in such numbers, at least in individual
cases, until the arrangements were com
plete to accommodate the troops mustered
out of service at this post, prior to their
payment and departure for home. And
for these burdens and this libarality
and hospitality the people of Efarriburg have
already been abused abroad, and . haye to bear
the shame of the greedy spectlators who are
attraced to our midst in hope of plunder at
the expense of the soldiers. In addition, it
must be borne in mind, that hundreds of men
have been enlisted in this city, the credit of
which fairly belongs to the different wards in
which the enrolling offices are located. If a
man enlists in Boston, New York, Philadelphia
Pittsburg, Cincirmati, St. Louis, Baltimore,
or any other city, it matters not where he be
longed five days before his enlistment, he is
credited to the locality in which he was re
cruited. By such a practice many a ward in
the cities alluded to has been exempted,
when not one-third of the quOta of these
wards has been filled by the actual citizens
thereof. Had the same system been prat•
Media Harrisburg, our quota could be shown
to be at this time more than twice filled.
Bat such was not the practice, and hence we
are now called on to furnish a large number of
—There is no doubt that the additional bounty
proposed to be given to voluntiers in thid city
will Influence the filling up of our quota in a
very short tame.- It will still, however, re
quire the active co;operation q good men to
secure the filling up of this quota,' in such a
manner as to wind up this work with credit to
To-morrow evening council will hold a meet
ing more folly to consider the subject of 'offer
ing a local bounty, when, as we learn' that
several of the city fathers are not altogether
satisfied as to the necessity of an appropriation
to ficilitate volunteering, it would be" well for
those who are enlightened on the subject, to
be present and afford the councilmen in ques
tion the information necessary to justify them
in voting for the measure. The demonstration
on Saturday evening was one.of the most re
spectable and emphatic meetings over held in
this city. No councilman 'need want for sup
port 'to vote for an appropriation to provide a
local bounty, after such a meeting, so that we
trust thometesure will at once take a prattical
shape, so as immediately - to facilitate the filling
np of ,the quotas of the different wards of 'the
THE Amususu CoNscurpriuN Bmt.has just
passed Congress. Baddes providing " that an
enrolled man..may at any time secure complete
exemption by furnishing a Subatituto not e ; liable
to &raft, it now permits a drafted man' tofeecure
exemption from service by procuring a substi-
tate liable to draft ; but his name Will be again
Unrolled for the next draft. The coat of com-
mutation is increased to $4OO, and the wpm of
the exempted man is enrolled, subject to draft
under future calls, "when the present enroll
ment is exhausted." Commutation money
must be applied to securing substitutes in the
Congressional district paying the money. Mem
bers of religious denominations, conscientiously
opposed to bearing arms, are to be cmsidored,
if drafted, as non-combatants, and assigned to
duty in hospitals, or be exempted, by. paying-
$4OO, during the whole term. Every foreigner
who has held office in the State of United States
la to be enrolled.
The Radicalism of the War Democrttey.
The most radical men in this nation are the
War Democracy. They seem to understand
the exact meaning of the objects of the rebel
slaveholders, while they insist that the rebellion
can only be effectually crushed by striking at
slavery itself. Indeed, the radicalism of the
rankest Abolitionist becomes tame in compari
son to that of the War. Democracy. The ex
planation for this is to be found in the fact that
the War Democracy have been for many years
in the confidence of the slave drivers ; indeed,.
these bold men who now oppose rebellion as
War Democrats were once the active upholders
of slavery, while they ithagined that the system
was nothing worse than domestic institution,
made necessary to secure the cultivation of
large tracts of the territory of the South, which
the hand of the white man could not till, and
which, unless worked by slave labor, would
necessarily be abandoned to waste and useless
ness. But when the mask was thrown off, and
the upholders attempted to make their capital
in slave labor the ruling influences of the nation,
the War Darner:racy became the bold enemies
of the conspirators.
Among thoec who are thus opposing slavery as
the cause of the rebellion and the main spring
of the struggles now going on for the destruc
tion of the government, Senator Cosiness, of
California, elected as a 'War Democrat, is doing
grand service. In a recant apsecti in the Uni
ted States Senate he planted himself squarely
l on the anti-slavery platform; and in a passage
at arms with Senator. Saulsbury, of Delaware,
kir. Celanese said, touching a proposition to
except non-combatants from military service :
This was a Quaker's war; a war of moral
forces against the institution of slavery. The
South undertook this war to rear up a negro
empire upon its proposition that slavery was
right and essential to the existence of sooiety.
A. part of their proposition was to tear down
our government and build up their slave breed
ing aristocracy on its ruins. We accept their
proposition, and say they shall neither build up
their edifice nor tear down this government of
freedom established by our forefathers. A. cit
izen, whether Jew or Gentile, Quaker or Cath
olic, be be what he may, cannot perform a
higher duty than to go to the =field and fight
his country's battles for the preservation of hu
man liberty. There is a moans prepared for
exemption. He wieformosed to this exemption
for conscience eake. He believed the safest and
truest way to Heaven was to strike a rebel
wherever you can roach him.
The Freedmen in South Carolina
A Beaufort (South Carolina) correspondent
of the Boston Traveler furnehes a statement
showing the prosperity of the Freedmen of that
place, under the impartial government of the
United States. About thirty condemned horses
were recently put up for sale, and,to the sur
prise of everybody brought in some cases as
high as seventy-five, one hundred, and one
hundred and forty dollars, though their esti
mated value was not over twenty dollars. The
purchasers were, in every case, Freedmen, who
promptly produded .the "greenhacks..! TheY
have made money rapidly of late.
The same correspondent says that the Gov
ernment plantations have been turned Over to
the United States Tax Commissioners, the
present superintendents having been notified
that their future services will be dispensed
with. The lands not sold in February will be

A Washington letter says the President has
had several thousand copies of his proclamation
of December Bth, declaring an amnesty to all
rebels of the rank of Colonel and under, pro
viding they take a prescribed oath, printed in
large type in the shape of a hand bill, and at
the end of the proclamation Is the following :
The book wherein to record the taking of the
above oath by such-persons as may apply` is in
the custody of—, at who is authorized
to administer the said oath to such persons of

How Justice is Administered in
The following cotomtmication is from the
pen/of one of the most respectable citizens re
siding in York county, and presents a most
lamentable state of affairs existing in that,
county. It seems that copperheads will stop
at nothing if they have an opportunity to per
secute Union men. Read it carefully:
THE "CirariND INQUEST"- OF YORK COUNTY, Pa.—
Extremes Meet—A Party Outrage by Men Under
aith.—Mr.Enrrcia:--Non will perhaps recollect,
that a f t the time the Xelials.vieited our county
and captured the ancient borough of York, a
black man was murdered in the upper part of
the county, snpp3sed by some to have lingered
behind with a view to escape from the rebels.
Thesarty who committed the deed gave out
that' liaintended to steal - horses, or something
as bad. This case was brought before the Grand
Jury of the county, at the August Term, if we
remember rightly, and ignored. Thus, men
under solemn oaths, refused even to bring up
for investigation, a case involving the high
est crime—or 'one of the highest—known in
human or divine law ! This is one extreme. (I
need not atoP•ta tell you how our Grand and
other Juries have, for years, been constituted.)
A few months ago an assault and battery case
. occurred between two butchers, in our market
house. The one was a naval soldier, who
had faithfully served out hie time, and a little
over; and who, besides other important or
vices to the CrOverntuont, volunteered (with
others from the Now fronaidoe) to aid the land
forces in capturing Morris lalaed, and has now
returned hcme, and -is aiding his father and
' uncle in fulfilling it contract to furnish the 11.
S. Military Hospital at this place with meat.—
The other is one of the most unmitigated Cop
perheads of this place--as we might show
some sulking circumstances which occurred
when the rebels were here, if space permitted—
ari withal one of the most abusive men, when
in a curtain mood, on God's earth. - Well, to
make our aid/ short, the Union soldier, under
a provocation that would have tried a mint,
knocked the Copperheads" down with his fist,
and gave ,a couple of blows beadles, not disa
bling him, however more than theatuu, and a
mark on which he had a 'bandage, placed there
by a physidan of like party ties with himself—
the one who did a similar job for him a few
years ago,Jor a more serious knock—two or
three days ; for even before he reached h 43
home from market, he againabaecd the soldier,
calling him a "lump,' —a German word of
quite a wide signifiamee—aud taunted him'
with the fact that "he might now go and pay
Cost," having sued the soldier at the justice's l
office who is reported to have aided the rebels
in taking down our flag when they "captured"
our on, the holy Sabbath day.
Now - comes the other extrente. This case
was brought before our Grand Jury at the Janu
ary term, lately held, and they report a bill of
"assault vith intent to kill." Who ever heard
of a matt striking another with his fist,- if he
intended to kill him? Verily, we are verging
upon evil times. Party 'seems to onguiph every
thing, however sacred in its obligation, in its
malicious hate; and woo be to the man, at least
in our county, that belongs not to the strong
side in politics, if he is compelled to such jus
tice by legal-:procees.We defy the prosecutor,
or any witness who may have testified before
this Grand Jury, or any of the Grand Jurors,
who is acquainted with the two individuals—
parties to the suit—to stand up before high l
Heaviin, and the public of York, ands wear
with a clear conscience. that there mos saaj , in
tent to kill in this case,-or thatthey so. believe.
We have not said anytiiieg, and do not in
tend to say anything to forestall the action of
the Court in the trial to be held hereafter, but
the action of the Grand Jury is 'past; and;
therefore, as a fact concluded, subject to the
scrutiny of the commualty, and we cannot call
the finding of this bill, (arising, as it did, out of
the peculiar circumstances of the country,) any
thing else than a party outrage. a
