rious election districts in Dauphin county, will
please make their returns to the office of the
PENNSYLVANIA TELEGRAPH ; nird street, between

TRT; CHAPLAIN AT CARLISLE BAR-
Rev. I. D. Ross, the newly appointed Chap
lain at Carlisle Barracks, was almost the first
clergyman in this state who had the independ
ence to denounce secession from the pulpit, and
is still among those reverend gentlemen who
cling to and defend the cause of the Union as
it is being batted for by the loyal states. Owing
to these facts, some of the bolder of the seces
sion Breckenridge organs in the north, who fly
at every pretext to denounce the federal gov
ernment, are representing the appointment of
Rev. Ross as "one not fit to be made," while
every independent, loyal journal in the com
monwealth approves it highly. Added to this
fact, his reception at the Barracks, by the people
and the press of Carlisle was both cordial and
complimentary, evincing an appreciation, which
was also an acknowledgement of his talents and
virtues, alike generous on their part and just to
the recipient. The War Department has made
no better appointment to the same duty in the
army, for many a year.
THE RECENT REPORT OF THE GRARD 'JURY of
Philadelphia county, emphatically declaring
that no evidence had been produced before
them of a character in the least affecting the
personal integrity, official probity, or general
honesty of Governor Curtin, is being highly ap
proved by the newspapers of this common
wealth. The storm that howled around the
Executive Department has been calmed by the
influence and investigation of an independent
and impartial grand jury, leaving the Chief-
Magistratate of the state fully vindicated, the
confidence of the people restored to his admin
istration, and its policy and purity endorsed
thus by the ablest journals in every county in
the state. This must be no less gratifying to
Andrew G. Curtin as a man than as an execu
tive officer, while the ordeal through which he
has passed, the assaults to which he was sub
jected, and the calumny and slander which
were invented .to crush him, have been left to
spend their force at his feet, harmless to all
save their own conceivers, against whom they
must sooner or later recoil.
LET NO HONEST UNION 31AN deceive himself
that a vote for Dr. Heck or for any of the can
didates opposed to those put forward by the
People's Union Convention, will restore peace
to this nation any - sooner, because Dr. Heck and
his associates are in favor of compromising our
difficulties, and again conceding to the south all
that it demands for the encouragement and in
crease of the institution of slavery ! Peace will
never bless us, until the law is enforced and 1
vindicated. The Union will never be restored
and again substantially win the respect and the
confidence of the world, until the federal au
thority is acknowledged as supreme. The ef
forts tending to these results are opposed by the
men on the Dr. Heck ticket, as acts of coercion,
repugnant to the spirit of those who live by op
pressing and debasing humanity. Therefore they
will not submit to the law, nor acknowledge the
federal authority. A vote then for the
Breckenridge-Heck ticket, will only increase
the opposition to a substantial peace, and curse
the nation with new evils by encouraging to
new outrages, the leaders in this rebellion. The
only salvation that the country can achieve, is
by voting for those who are in favor of prosecu
ting the war to a successful close—in favor of
enforcing the law against all offenders—and in
favor of sustaining those who have armed them
selves for the purpose of sustaining the Union.
The People's Union Ticket for the sake of the Union,
is now the motto and the signal of action of
every Union loving man in Dauphin county.
A HISTORICAL FACT.
KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE
The first effort ever made, that had any force,
to distroy this government, subvert its authori
ty and annul its laws, was made by those who
ruled the organization of the Democratic party,
and although the veteran chief, Old Hickory,
as a representative of that party, crushed nulli
fication, he was only enabled to do so after he had
surrounded himself with other counsellors besides
those who were identified with the peculiar po
litical organization that had elevated him to the
Presidency, and who claimed the good resulting
from his administration as the effects of a Demo
cratic policy. This historical fact harmonises with
the existing condition of national affairs, because
the rebellion that is now beseiging the capitol
and rallying to the eternal destruction of every
bond of Union, grew out of a policy originating
with and encouraged by each successive Demo
cratic administration since the days of Andrew
Jackson. From the hour that nullification was
crushed, it became the plan of the Democratic
party to increase the franchises and develop the
power of slavery. It ruled in its political con
ventions, constructed its platforms, indicated its
candidates and dictated its policy of administra
tion, until slavery was deemed the only - legiti
mate power in the government, unerring in
judgment and immaculate in council. It grew
in strength and wealth and arrogance, and
showed its force wherever it possessed a power,
until it has culminated in the present rebellion.
This rebellion would never have occupied its
present positions, had it not been for the en
couragements it received from the Democratic
These are historical facts, which the people
should ponder at this time, and which should
be well understood before they vote for any of
the candidates now before them. The past is
full of proof that whenever the Democratic party
ruled, slavery predominated—and whenever
slavery prevailed in an administration, plans
were continually being concocted for the sub
version or destruction of the federal government.
Those plans are now in full operation. Those
who push them forward are either the sup
porters of slavery in the south, or its defenders
in the north. If the northern defenders succeed
at the election to-morrow, the southern sup
porters of slavery will be strengthened. With
this fact staring us in the face, the duty becomes
plain in regard to our course to-morrow. It
leaves no man any other action than that of
voting so as to prevent power from going into
the hands of the northern dough-face, that he
may give aid and comfort to the rebel ; and in
order to do this effectually, a unanimous vote
must be cast for the People's Union Ticket.—
Let our friends remember these historical facts
and the arguments deduced from them in favor
of the People's Union Ticket. Let them vote
so as to crush rebellion, not by making further
compromises with its cause, slavery, but by
holding that institution responsible for its pres- '
ens excesses and outrages. And we repeat, that
this can only be done by voting for the entire
People's Union candidates.
O' P 1. .
Setting aside, for a moment, the great issues
involved in this contest, but not forgetting
their importance, it will not be deemed out of
place at this time, to review the personal claims
of the candidates nominated by the People's
Union Convention for the support:of the Union
people of Dauphin county to-morrow. The care
with which that ticket was: selected—the
unanimity of the delegates making these
nominations, and the zeal with which they are
supported by the people, all evince the high
character of the men thus prominent in this
contest, and the unmistakable claims they pos
sessed thus to win the favor and the confidence
of their fellow-citizens. In a personal view,
there can be no objection raised to a single
man on the People's Union ticket. Individually
they are unexceptionable in character and un
excelled in ability for the various positions the
preferences of their friends have indicated them
as their choice. Why then should loyal men
seek other candidates less qualified and reputed
for the same positions ? Why should the mas
ses of an organization that is upholding both
state and national administrations, seek to ele
vate untried and unfaithful men to the places
which, above all others at this time, require our
most responsible and most faithful citizens?
We can see no good reason for such a course,
and a candid review of the merits of all the
candidates before the people, will convince our
friends of the great necessity of supporting our
own nominations. This necessity becomes the
more apparent when we consider that there is
not one among all our opponents who is not
in some shape, either by old party ties, old po
litical prejudices, or present secret obligation of
some kind or the other, wedded to those who
are engaged in this rebellion ; and, therefore,
disguise the fact as we may, his election
would be regarded among the rebels as an ac
-1 knowledgement of the merits of their cause by
the people of the north.
Let no man, therefore, be seduced, from his
duty by any argument in favor of personal pre
ference. Let no man be seduced from his duty
to his country, in order to gratify the ambition
of a friend or a neighbor, or to recognise the
qualities of some hale fellow, whose hospitality
and good cheer sink into insignificance when
compared to the mischief his elevation to
office would entail not only on the community
in which we live, but on the nation of which
we form so respectable a portion. We want the
honest people of Dauphin county to ponder
these facts, and we again urge them not to
allow their personal feelings to seduce them
from the performance of a patriotic duty. Our
whole ticket must be elected, As ONE OF TILE INFLU
ENCES THAT IS TO PRESERVE OUR WHOLE UNION.
BRADFORD Cousry has already furnished some
of the very best men in the service, and from
all accounts is able and willing to contribute
more of the same material for the success of the
same cause for which the revolutionary struggle
was conducted, the establishment of civil and
religious liberty as a right of every human
being. Last week Captain E. P. Davis marched
sixty-six recruits from Bradford county, into
Camp Curtin, who will compare favorably with
any set of men yet mustered into service. We
are always glad to welcome such defenders.

IA 5 A t 's • • A t .• •
One of the objects of the Breckinridge clique
in this region, is to manage the people of this
county in such a manner as to make the result
of the election to-morrow an acknowledgment
that they had done a grievious wrong one year
ago, by placing Abraham Lincoln in the Presi
dential chair. This result, the defeat of the
People's Union Ticket, is to be construed into
an admission of the'injustice of the present ef
forts to crush rebellion, and will be used by the
people of the south as an argument to justify
themselves before the nations of the world,
and wring from them a recognition of
their claims as an independent sovereign
power. In anticipation of such results and its
construction of recognition, the rebels have
delayed attacking Washington city and march
ing to the subjugation of Maryland by the same
bullying force with which they have succeeded
in driving most of the border states into an al
liance with their treason. If their allies of the
Breckinridge clique, headed by Dr. Heck and
defended by the Patriot and Union succeed in
defeating the Union people of this county, the
result will most assuredly be claimed as a
victory against federal authority over state sov
ereignty, as a triumph of the idea that the en
forcement of the law is the coercion of the peo
ple, and that rebellion and anarchy are legiti
mate means with which to redress wrongs and
These issues, then, so studiously concealed by
the opponents of the People's Union candidates,
must be tested by the people themselves, to
morrow. If the Union is to be maintained, its
friends must stand by those who are in the
field armed to achieve that purpose, by placing
the legislature as well as the executive powers
of that government in the hands of its fiends,
and by making a devotion.to its interests, a test
for the elevation of men to the humblest posi
tions in the government. If this is done, there
will be no obstacle in the way of the restoration
of order by the enforcement of the law, but if it
is not done, law and order will not speedily be
vindicated or restored ! By the failure to
do so, the people will acknowledge that they
were wrong in elevating Lincoln to the Presi
dency, and thus not only place a justification in
the mouths of traitors, but abase themselves be
fore the governments of the world. These dis
graces can be averted to-morrow. .If they are
neglected then, we may expect an accumulation
of disgraces and defeats hereafter. This truth
is worth remembering by the people of Dauphin
Our Representative Candidates.
While the economy and facility of
business of the county demand that the People's
Union candidates for county offices should be
elected, it becomes more important, as we pro
perly view the facts and principles involved,
that the nominees for the legislature should be
triumphantly elected. These candidates, Messrs.
Freeland and Fox, are known personally to al
most every business man in the county. In
ability they will rank with any of the men
who have formerly represented this county,
and in purity of character, devotion to the
Union, zeal in its defence, and a man
ly determination to stand by those who
have armed for itspreservation, they are worthy
of the admiration and support of the loyal, pa
triotic men of Dauphin county. We must elect
Messrs. Freeland and Fox by handsome majori
ties. We must redeem Dauphin county from the
Heck misrepresentation. We must wipe out
the Heck disgrace of refusing to vote supplies
to the defenders of our nationality, and prove
to the people of the Union, by the election of
Freeland and Fox, that Dauphin county always
heretofore devoted, is still loyal to:the Union!
No calamity could possibly befall the interests
of this county at this time, half so crushing as
the election of any other men to represent us in
the legislature, than Freeland and Fox. If
they are suffered to be defeated by inactivity or
indifference, we deserve a double disgrace.
Freeland and Fox are necessary to. swell our
majority in the legislature, in order that the
state administration may be sustained in its,
wise policy of aiding in the suppression of the
rebellion. This is the issue on which rests the
result of the election of representatives, and
therefore our friends must be on the alert to se
cure their success.
The Breckinridge clique and the sore-heats of
the rump-convention will approach honest peo
ple with professions of devotion to the Union,
and thus endeavor to win their support. They
will preach loyalty with their lips, while they
concoct plans to destroy the prospects now so
propitious of bringing this war to a close by a
prompt and vigorous suppression of rebellion,
Our friends must be on their guard for these
shallow tricks and hollow professions. They
must poll no ballot until it has been carefully
examined, while they must not receive a ticket
from any but tried and true Union men. Let
them revise the ticket by the one at the head of
our columns, or rely only on these for tickets
who are personally known to them as safe and
reliable citizens. Unless this vigilence is exer
cised, we may loose the election, simply because
our political foes have more at heart the defeat
of the People's Union ticket, than they have
the discomfiture of the traitor hosts beseiging
THE REBEL LEADEas find it necessary to keep
up the sinking courage of their troops by fre
quent promises. Beauregard has promised a
great many things, but fulfils none of his
pledges. Jeff. Davis has now tried his hand at
a similar operation. The Richmond papers of
Thursday last state that Davis arrived at Fair
fax Court-Hose on Wednesday, and made a
speech to the rebel soldiery, telling them that
if they would make good use of their rifles they
should soon be in Baltimore. The Richmond
journals also state that the sick soldiers of the
rebel army have been sent from Manassas to
Richmond, and that this movement was made
in expectation of a battle.

PRISONERS AT RICHMOND-
Statement of Released Officers.
Lieutenant R. Goodenough, Jr., and Dr. Har
ris, the former of the Fourteenth N. Y. State
Militia of Brooklyn, the latter of the Second re
giment of Rhode Island, and both lately doing
medical duty at Richmond, have been released
with five others on surgeon's parole, and have
just arrived in this city.
I hey report that they were captured while at
tending their wounded comrades after the battle
of Stone Bridge; and with the others taken pri
soners were stripped of every article but those
ultimately required by decency, and in this con
dition were sent to Richmond, consuming forty
eight hours on the way, packed into baggage
cars with other prisoners as full as they could
At Richmond they were put into the tobacco
factory or prison hospital. 'there the Confede
rate surgeons, as might be expected, attended
to the rebel wounded first, and afterwards to
our own men, who were not, however,treated
with any undue severity of practice. The rebel
surgeons in general, as may unfortunately be
remarked of many who attended our own regi
ments, are singularly incompetent, and display,
to a degree proportionately increased, the same
reckless love of carving for carving's sake,
which is too often manifested in our own muni
cipal hospitals. Many limbs were sacrificed by
the knife, simply on account of comminuted
fractures, where they might easily have been
saved, and many more were allowed to remain
unamputated which should have come off, be
cause the shell-fragments they had received had
not broken bones. Of these latter cases the
great number died—sinking into a slow typhoid
state from the wide destruction of tissues the
shells had produced without implicating the
Singularly enough, neither in the general nor
the prison hospitals did any cases occur after the
Stone Bridge battle of high inflammatory affec.
tions supervening upon wounds. There was no
erysipelas —no hospital gangrene. All the
deaths occurred rather from low than high in.
It was a common practice for the rebel sen
tries to fire at the windows of the prison con
taining the loyal captives. One man, already
mentioned in our despatches, was killed in this
way—another was seriously, wounded through
the leg, without even putting his bead out of
• The climax of barbarity was, however, reach
ed when the sentry fired into the window of the
hospital. Fortunately, no one was killed, but
the ball passed th - re'e feet over the head of the
dying bed of one of our wounded, and ?vent out
at the ward door behind him. Alter these little
escapades of the sentries, an officer generally
came over from Beauregard to tell the surgeons
it was a mistake.
In one ward a single physician was left to
take care (without assistance) of more than one
hundred and fifty patients. Lint, bandages,
sponges, all hospital appliances were very scant,
but in general were shared between the rebel
and Union wounded with more generosity than
might have been expected.
Fine Pay for Volunteers.
There never were such inducements offered
to volunteers to enlist in any army of the world
as our Government proposes now. Besides
those considerations of a patriotic character that
ought to induce our young men to rally around
our flag, and bear it successfully through this
war, look for a moment at the pay. Suppose a
private to have served for one year, and that
being the end of the war, his account with the
Government, reduced to a cash, valuation, would
stand about thus :
For 12 months' pay at $1.3 per month. $156 00
FQr 12 months' commutation for cloth
ing 3 42 00
For. 12 months' commutation for ra-
tions, $l2 244 00
For bounty 100 00
For grant of 160 acres of land (in pros
pect,) valued, say at 160 00
Total for the year
There are other considerations involved which
we have not enumerated in the above statement.
The act of Congress, approved July 22, 1861,
provides that "Every volunteer, non-commis
sioned officer, private, musician and artificer,
who enters the service of the United States un
der this act, shall be paid at the rate of fifty
cents in lieu of subsistence; and if a cavalry
volunteer, twenty-five cents additional in lieu
of forage for every twenty miles of travel from
his place of enrollment to the place of muster,
and when honorably discharged, an allowance
at the came rate rate from the place of his dis
charge to tnG place of his enrollment.
Moreover, in regard to pensions for the wound
ed, and provision for olio widows of soldiers
killed in battle, and in every other .esseutial
particular, the entire volunteer force is - placed
upon an equal footing with the regular army.
FREMONT'S EXPENDITURES.—The St. Louis Re
publican meets some of the vague charges against
Fremont with these plain statements of facts :
"Another instance of the utterly groundless
charges against him, is the statement that he
has involved the government in express expen
ditures for the transportation of guns, etc.,
amounting to $300,000, when the truth is, that
all .the express bills he has incurred do not
reach $20,000. We cite these simply as illus
trations, for no one can meet in detail the
myriad-tongued slanders which are being circu
lated against Gen. Fremont, and which, when
ever they are refuted, rise again in some other
of their protean forms. Just now, the telegraph
brings us complaints from Washington of the
high prices paid for arms. Before Gen. Fre
mont left New York, he procured from the gov
ernment full arms fur seven thousand men
but after Manassas, those arms were diverted
to Washington, and have, never been replaced.
To this day he has never received from the
gouernment any arms except a few heavy guns.
He was preparing a raw army for the field, to
meet pressing emergencies, and the very exi
gencies of the case compelled him to procure
arms in small quantities, wherever he could find
them, either in this city or elsewhere. Of
course he was unable, purchasing in this man
ner, to procure as favorable terms as the gov
ernment could in heavy contracts with the
manufacturers ; and if the safety of St. Louis, of
Cairo and Paducah, were of less importance
than a few dollars in the price of guns and re
volvers, then these charges are just, and Gen.
Fremont was wrong. Even now, finding it ut
terly impossible to obtain arms from the gov
ernment, for his cavalry, he is having lances
and pikes Manufactured for them by the me
chanics of St. Louis and Cincinnati."
Letter from Governor Sprague.
Governor Sprague, of Rhode Island, declined
an invitation to attend the fair of the Vermont
Agricultural Society, in a letter closing as
"The cause which we are now engaged in has
no superior in the history of the world. The
rights of men, our liberties and dearest privi
leges are jeopardized if we fail in our duty now.
We of New England owe a debt to those who
fought for our political and religious freedom,
and future generations have a right to expect
from us as liberal an inheritance as we received
from our fathers. The consciousness of laboring
in a glorious cause under the folds of that flag
which is the representative of freedom, and
which carries with it the hopes of the down
trodden everywhere, should nerve us into the
most energetic action—the utmost heroism. All
this exists in the manhood of Vermont ' • her

Little doubt is entertained here that Price is
on his way south with the main bod yof his army.

vance engaged. When last heard from Prices'

Gen. Fremont will follow him closely and
give him battle wherever he can find him. A

and this place, and fall upon some stray regi
ment or transportation train going out. Col.
Coffee, of Booneville, passed through here the
other day for St. Louis, but it has been since as
certained that he is on his way south with im

cord of the procedings of the mock legislature
held at Lexington.

It seems to be the belief in military circles
here that Price will avoid a battle with Fre

opinion that he intends a surprise upon some
point the least protected, and that we shall
have a fight in a few days. Fremont designs
to follow the rebel army into Arkansas, and

From information gathered from scouts, there
are about 11,000 armed rebels scattered over the
southwestern part of the State, including
6,000 to 7,000 at Camp Walker, Arkansas, 8
miles below the Missouri line, under command
of young Ben. McCulloch.
Major Wright, of the Home Guards, furnish
es the following statement : A physician well
known to the major, whose name I am not per
mitted to use, arrived from the southwest on
Tuesday evening. This physician was formerly
a partner of Dr. Snell, Gen. McCulloch's army
The former very recently had an interview
with his old partner, and was told by him that
in the battle of Springfield McCulloch was shot
through the hips and a glance ball also
struck him in the forehead. Soon after making
his report of the battle McCulloch with the
Texas forces was ordered back to Texas, but
after reaching Camp Chesapeake, near Mount
Vernon, he died from his wounds.
Before he expired he spoke freely of the man
ner of his treatment by the Missourians, and de
clared that if he had known the true position of
affairs he never would have entered the State.
Ilia -body was placed in a metallic coffin and
conveyed to Texas. His death was concealed
even from his own men for a time, it being the
policy of the surviving leaders to operate on the
prestige of his name.
His son, Ben. McCulloch, Jr., was therefore
