Our friends throughout the county, who may
be selected to bring in the returns from the va_
rious election districts in Dauphin county, will
please make their returns to the office of the
PENNSYLVANIA TELEGRAPH, Vetrd street, between
Market and 'Walnut streets, where arrangements
have been made to receive the returns, in order
to have them printed for circulation as early on
Wednesday morning as possible. It is very
necessary that our friends should not forget
this important arrangement.
THE CHAPLAIN AT CARLISLE BAR
Rev. L 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 state& 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"gone 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 pressof Carlisle was both cordial and
complimentary, , evincing an appreciation, Which
was also'anacknowledgement 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.
Ties RECENT REPORT OF THE G RAND 'J -.-
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 Governer 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-
Magistre.tate- of the state fully vindicated; the
confidence of the people testored to his admin
istration, and its policy and purity endorsed
this 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
neve their own conceivers, against. whore they
must sooner or later recoil.
that a:iftite for Dr. Heck or'for any of bne can
didates opposed to those put forward by the
People's Union Convention, will restore peace
to this nation atifsooner, 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 .1 Peace will
never bless us, until the law is enforced and
vindicated. The Union will riever,be restored
and again substantially win the respect and the
confidence of the world, until the federal au
thority, ' Acknowledged es' shpreme. 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 egthose who live by op-
pressing and delhasinghumanity. Theiefore 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 now 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 thei motto and the signal of adieu of
every Union liming man in Ditnpb# mom
A HISTORICAL FACT.
KKKP IT BEFORE lIIE 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 theDemocratio 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 organizationthat had elevated him to the
Presidency, and who claimed the good resulting
from his administration as the effects of &Demo
cratic policy. This historicalfactharmonises with
the existing condit ion 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 vas
crushed, it became the plan of the Democratic
to increase the franchises and develop the
pow or of slavery. It ruled in its political con
ventions, constructed its platforms, indicated its
candidates and dictated its policy of adrainistra-
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 wheiever 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 thefederal government.
Those plans are now in full operation. Those
who push them forward are either the sup
porters of slavery in the south, or He 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 lathe face, the duty becomes
plain in regard to our course
leaves no man any other, action than that of
voting so as to prevent power from going into
thelands 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 ,llnion 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

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

people of Dauphin county to-morrow. The care
with which that ticket was selected 7 —the
unanimity of the delegates' maldng these

character of the men thus prominent in this

sessed thus to win the favor and the confidence

there can be no objection raised to a single

WILL TEE PEOPLE ACILNOWLEDOZ THAT THAT HAVE
DONE WRONG ?
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 friends,
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 ofl)auphin

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.
They 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

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 pn account of comminuted
fractures, where they might easily have been
saved, arid many more were allowed to remain
unainputated which should have come off, be
cause the shell-fragments they had received bad
not broken pones. Of these latter cases the
great number died--eiriking into a slow typhoid

shells'llid 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
deathii 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 head out of
the window. • • • •
The climax of barbarity was, however, reach
ed when the sentry fired into the window of the
hospital. Fortunately, no one •wats killed. but
the ball passed three feet over the head of the
dying bed of one of our wounded, and sent out
at the ward door behind him. Atter these little
escapades of the sentries, an offutv generally
came over from Beauregard to tell the stugeon3
it was a mistake.
In one ward a single physician was left to
take care (without Stance) 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 Voltuateeis.
There never were such inducements offered
to:voinnteers 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 :

Little doubt is entertained here that Price is
on his way south with the main body of his army.
The force reported to be making demonstrations
near Georgetown and Sedalia, being merely a
detachment for the purpose of keeping our ad
vance engaged. When last heard from Prices'
adiance was at Clinton, in Henry county. It
is supposed that Price will push to the Arkan
Gee. Fremont will follow him closely and
give him battle wherever he can find him. A
force of between three and four thousand rebel
cavalry were seen near Lipton to-day, whose
object is presumed - to get between our advance
and' this place, and fall upon, some stray regi-
Ment or transportation train going out. Col.
Coffee, of Booneville, passed through hero the
other day for St. Louis, but ithas been since as
certained that he is on his way south with im

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